World’s Perspective

Vantage Point

by Diane Meyer

Every peak leaves a valley in its wake and gives way to another directly below — both views are worthy of attention.

Diane Meyer is the editor of Hereford World. She can be reached at dmeyer@hereford.org.

A year has come and gone with the same swiftness as a Missouri summer rainstorm. I must admit I have experienced just as much culture shock moving from California to Texas and then to Missouri as I have while traveling abroad, but I have enjoyed every second of adjusting to my new home in the Midwest. I even made it through my first tornado warning, although I had to be reminded not to take cover under a desk. When I started at the American Hereford Association (AHA), I was immediately drawn to the breed’s longstanding history depicted in the artwork and artifacts displayed throughout the office. There was something captivating about our history, and I knew I wanted to share that feeling with our readers. Recently I stumbled across a passage from Hayes Walker which perfectly describes the draw I felt toward Hereford’s history. In an introduction to Hazelton’s History and Hand Book of Hereford Cattle and Hereford Bull Index, 1935, Walker says: “There is romance in the Hereford breed. Its story is one of ambition and of discouragement, of failures and of successes, and Mr. Hazelton has sensed this romance in his references to the beginnings and successes of different herds and of different men. This romance may be there only in suggestion, but it is there — and it is readable and interesting and entertaining.” Without a doubt, Walker conveyed this romance in his editorial when he established the American Hereford Journal 110 years ago. The essence of the Hereford breed has allowed its publications to stand the test of time, providing readable, interesting and entertaining content that will continue to thrive.

In this issue I certainly have a soft spot for history, as did the man who said the following: “Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” General George S. Patton’s words could not be more fitting for this issue. The 96th Annual Herd Bull and Reference Edition features an outstanding team of writers — and an exceptional designer — who never fail to exceed my expectations. Join us in “the Hereford Drive,” which showcases Hereford’s pioneering spirit in a special section beginning on Page 54. These tales describe Hereford’s tie to the Kansas City Stockyards (Page 70), the legacy of Willard Wolf (Page 80), and the perspective of the breed from the block (Page 112). While we could write a manuscript of all the Hereford breeders who embody this month’s theme, we could only share a few. Discover some of the breed’s innovative and progressive families on Pages 92, 102 and 122. With roots dating back more than 300 years, “timeless” is certainly a warranted descriptor of our beloved breed. The AHA thanks pencil artist Dino Cornay for donating his original drawing “Timeless” to headline a special live auction at “The Brand” Marketing Summit (Page 43) — Timeless also graces the cover of this issue. This first year as editor has been filled with just as many successes as mistakes, and I appreciate everyone’s patience as I grow into this role. I look forward to another year of serving the membership and contributing to the legacy of this publication. On behalf of the Hereford Publications Inc. team, we hope you enjoy this special edition of the Hereford World. May your summer be bright and your smile brighter.

Breed Focus

Broader Horizons

by Jack Ward

As the agriculture community overcomes trying times, Hereford breeders continue to embrace improvements.

Jack Ward is the executive vice president of the American Hereford Association. He can be reached at jward@hereford.org.

Typically, come July, farming is done, haying is underway and summer activities are in full swing. This year has been everything but typical. As I write this article, members and their neighbors are still dealing with the devastation of tornados and flooding. Just after the most recent tornado in our area, Mary Ann and I found debris in our yard and pastures from nearly 50 miles away. It has been a tough year to say the least, but the resilience of the ag community — especially the cattle community — never ceases to amaze me. While working cattle at home recently, I realized I could not recall a day of a 2019-born calf that has been ideal. Even though temperatures have warmed, our calves are still having a hard time finding a dry place. As I talk to breeders from around the country, their stories are close to the same. But, more importantly, the attitude and the message are very positive. Breeders comment their calves look good, the cows are slicking off and it is remarkable how they have weathered the storms. As you read through this issue of the Hereford World, you will see stories on the history and some of the influential moments of the American Hereford Association (AHA). Certainly, this past year proves the importance and resilience of the Hereford breed in the cattle industry. Hereford cattle are tough and can withstand just about anything Mother Nature throws at them. Just as importantly, breeders of Hereford cattle are tough, strong-willed and determined to focus on the traits which have kept the breed at the forefront of commercial operations for centuries.

Sharpening our skills The AHA recently hosted “The Brand” Marketing Summit in Kansas City, Mo. It was an incredible event attended by

| July 2019

more than 200 participants and even included guests from other countries and other breeds. Mark Core, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Vermeer Corporation, facilitated the conference. Mark and his family also own and operate a very successful cattle business that has been in his family for many generations. With his background, Mark understands cattlemen love nearly every chore associated with the ranch — except marketing. With this in mind, The Brand served to guide attendees in taking advantage of the multitude of simple tools available that can help market their operations. The event kicked off with a couple of sessions reminding Hereford breeders to stay fully engaged in breed improvement but to also keep a close eye on our ultimate customer — the consumer. Mark also led the group in an exercise to help each outfit identify its “True North,” which included analyzing strengths and weaknesses and setting goals to best serve each operation’s customers. Over the day-and-a-half session, the message was clear — all of us need to and can do a better job with our marketing strategies. Another major takeaway is that marketing does not start or stop on sale day. The lineup of speakers was incredible. They were inspirational and informative, and they challenged the group to embrace new approaches in their marketing strategies. This first-ofits-kind event in the seedstock business will greatly benefit all who attended. I would like to thank everyone who helped make it a reality. Lastly, I want to wish all of you a great 4th of July. This is an important day to remember and to celebrate the great country in which we live. Best wishes as we play some catch-up from a tough winter and spring. Hereford.org

Performance Matters

Advancements Abroad

by Shane Bedwell

PACE is back and ready to take genetic evaluation to the next level. I would like to start by thanking everyone who attended “The Brand” Marketing Summit in Kansas City, Mo., in early June. I’m still blown away by the enthusiasm evident during the summit, and I’m personally motivated to help Team Hereford continue to move forward with a stronger and sharper image. A personal highlight was listening to longtime Kansas City Chiefs broadcaster Mitch Holthus deliver the keynote speech. He did an excellent job relating his “5 C’s for Success” — cooperation, creative, courage, confidence and conduit — and how breeders can apply these principles in marketing their operations.

Shane Bedwell is the chief operating officer and director of breed improvement of the American Hereford Association. He can be reached at sbedwell@hereford.org.

PACE revival I’m pleased to announce that beginning in July 2019, we will be back to running the Pan-American Cattle Evaluation (PACE) genetic evaluation. PACE was first released in July 2009 as a joint effort between the American Hereford Association (AHA) and the Hereford associations of Canada, Uruguay and Argentina. This first-of-its-kind collaboration saw the comparison of cattle from multiple continents in the same genetic evaluation. A huge positive of PACE was the increase in commerce amongst participating countries in sharing Hereford genetics and improving the

breed worldwide. In fact, according to the National Association of Animal Breeders (NAAB), there has been more than a 30 percent increase in semen exports in the last 10 years. This growth is in tandem with the strong North American trade between U.S. and Canadian Herford breeders. When the AHA transitioned to the updated genetic evaluation in December 2017, which utilizes Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT) software, the release was only a North American evaluation consisting of data from the U.S. and Canada. At that time, the two South American countries were not ready to make the transition to the improved genetic evaluation and wanted more time to research changes to the model. Since then, the AHA has worked with the leaders of the Uruguay and Argentina Hereford associations to run research prototypes and to determine the best approach to restructure PACE. In adding South American data back into the North American genetic evaluation, we will gain more than 500,000 pedigree records and more than 200,000 performance records to contribute to the calculations of expected progeny differences (EPDs) of animals jointly used across continents. Again, getting back to running PACE allows for more linkage with common genetics used in both North and South America. With this additional data, numbers on some animals are expected to change slightly, but, as a whole, the correlations are very strong comparing the North American and the PACE runs. At this point, the South American data will only be added in once a year as the two South American countries will only update their genetic evaluation once per year. We will continue to update our genetic evaluation every Monday. Happy 4th of July! Hereford.org

Archived issues are posted at Hereford.org.

Hereford breeders strengthen marketing skills at “The Brand” More than 200 Hereford enthusiasts traveled to Kansas City, Mo., June 3-4, for two days jam-packed with sessions featuring some of the best marketers in the business. With presentations from professionals representing all sectors of the cattle industry, attendees at “The Brand” Marketing Summit gleaned insight on using traditional and digital platforms to better market their programs and to be advocates for the Hereford breed and the beef industry. This first-of-its-kind event hosted by the American Hereford

Association (AHA) and Vermeer® Corporation allowed attendees to sharpen their marketing skills while developing effective tactics to reach current and potential customers. Events were underway Monday afternoon with presentations covering the growth and efficiency trends within the breed, consumer preferences and how to shape a business model. The Voice of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mitch Holthus, kicked off Tuesday morning sessions. Participants spent the remainder of the summit learning

from marketing professionals about social media marketing, video storytelling and overcoming sale time challenges. As well, AHA staff announced the soft launch of Herefords On Demand. AHA President Pete Atkins notes it was great to see such a large and diverse group, comprised of both big and small breeders, work together to learn and to collaborate on a common a goal — promoting the Hereford breed and the beef industry. “I was proud to see so many people participate in this event,” Atkins says. “It shows there are truly dedicated breeders who want to learn and work hard to push their operations and the breed to even higher levels. I think it is a testament to the values and quality of the people in our breed.” More details from The Brand can be found on Page 43.

Pratz joins the AHA as Southwest field representative The American Hereford Association (AHA) welcomes its newest team member, Colton Pratz, Stillwater, Okla., as the Southwest region field representative for the AHA and the Hereford World. Pratz started his post May 20. In this position, Pratz attends Hereford Colton Pratz sales and events as well as assists breeders with marketing and genetic selection. He will also contribute to educating members and commercial producers about AHA programs and other beef industry opportunities. “We are excited to have Colton start as a fulltime fieldman for the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas,” says Joe Rickabaugh, AHA director of seedstock marketing. “He comes from a great cattle background and has worked extensively on a Hereford operation since he has been in college. He impressed us in his interviews as being a personable young man with a passion for the Hereford breed. We look forward to him traveling extensively and meeting many breeders in his territory.”

| July 2019

Pratz is a May 2019 graduate of Oklahoma State University with a degree in animal sciences on the business track. He also earned an associate degree in animal science from Redlands Community College. Pratz was a competitive member of the livestock judging team at both institutions, as well as being involved in many other extracurricular activities. His work experience boasts being herdsman at Six Mile Creek Cattle Co., El Reno, Okla., where he played an instrumental role in marketing and genetic decisions for the operation. Pratz also gained valuable experience through Bonham Show Cattle and Swinford Equipment. “I am extremely excited to join the AHA team and start advocating for the Hereford breed,” Pratz says. “The Hereford breed has been a vital cornerstone for the cattle industry across the world, but I think most of that is due to the fact there has been a strong belief in the breeders and the will to keep the Hereford heritage strong. I am ready to continue promoting the Hereford breed in my travels, and I look forward to meeting new faces along the way.”

“Timeless” brings $27,000 for Hereford youth and research In true Team Hereford fashion, supporters of the breed banded together to raise $47,350 to benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation (HYFA) and the Hereford Research Foundation (HRF). “Timeless,” a graphite original drawing done by acclaimed artist Dino Cornay, headlined the special live auction held June 3 at Howl at the Moon in downtown Kansas City, Mo., in conjunction with The Brand. As auctioneer Lander Nicodemus led the chant, buyers Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas; Bill King Ranch, Moriarty, N.M.;

Colyer Herefords & Angus, Bruneau, Idaho; and Cottonwood Springs, Cedar, Mich., teamed up to place the winning bid for $27,000. The syndicate graciously donated the drawing to be hung in the AHA headquarters in Kansas City, Mo. “I am extremely honored to be the artist selected for this project portraying a great breed of cattle and to have worked with some fabulous people, including the directors and those that purchased the art,” Cornay says. “It is also an honor to be part of a great scholarship program for our young leaders and to have the original drawing hanging at the national Hereford headquarters in Kansas City.” Timeless prints are available for purchase. See Page 42 for more information.

Launch of Herefords On Demand Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) is thrilled to announce the official launch of Herefords On Demand.

Caldwell selected as Certified Hereford Beef intern Kyle Caldwell will serve as the Certified Hereford Beef® intern. A born-and-raised Texan, Caldwell completed an undergraduate degree in animal science at Texas Tech University with a meat science option and a minor in agribusiness management. Currently, he is working to finish his master’s degree at Texas A&M University in animal Kyle Caldwell science with a meat science specialization. At Texas Tech, Caldwell was a member of the 2016 Reserve National Champion meat judging team and competed on the meat science quiz bowl team. Using his knowledge of meat evaluation, he went on to coach the 2017 Reserve National Champion meat judging team at Clarendon College. Now, Caldwell is focused on finalizing his graduate research while serving as the co-coach of the Texas A&M meat judging team. Throughout his time in both an undergraduate and master’s program, Caldwell has served in several internship roles and comes to Certified Hereford Beef with a wealth of meat industry knowledge. As the Certified Hereford Beef intern, Caldwell will be working to learn more about the retail and food service industries, while focusing on the development of educational tools that can be used to bolster the knowledge of consumers and food service representatives on the value of Hereford beef. “I’m really looking forward to getting to work with all of the dedicated people involved with Certified Hereford Beef and the American Hereford Association that share the same passion for the beef industry as I do,” Caldwell says. “I’m also excited to get out in the field and tell the story of the sustainable, high quality product Hereford producers across the nation put on our plates.”

Herefords On Demand is a new online catalog production system for Hereford breeders to enhance their sale marketing efforts.

board workshops, which will assist in the enhancement of each individual’s leadership talents and communication skills and will encourage working in team settings. “Faces of Leadership is unique because it’s something different than our typical cattle events,” says Samuel Lawrence, National Junior Hereford Association director. “It’s awesome gathering with other youth members to learn and develop without the hustle and bustle of a livestock show surrounding us. I’m particularly excited for a theme of entrepreneurship at this year’s conference. I’m eager to learn about how to develop my own ideas while becoming a better leader and business person.” Registration for the conference closes July 15.

bull (optional). Any inventories turned in after Sept. 1 will incur the $2 per head surcharge. Any dam whose offspring will be registered and have weaning performance data recorded through the Whole Herd TPR program must be listed on the current inventory. Inventories can be submitted electronically through MyHerd.org or via email or mail. For assistance navigating through MyHerd, visit the MyHerd “Help” pages or call Customer Service at 816-842-3757.

Inventory FAQs Q: I sold a cow and transferred her to someone else’s ownership. Why is she still showing on my inventory? A: If an animal is listed on your inventory but you have sold the animal, then a proper disposal code and date must be reported in order to remove the animal from your inventory. If the animal was sold with papers, the American Hereford Association (AHA) staff does not automatically remove the animal from your inventory because they are not certain if you still have offspring to register out of the animal. If you would like to remove the animal, use the disposal code “T Sold with papers” and the appropriate disposal date. Q: If I have embryo transfer (ET) calves out of a dam I do not own, do I have to add the donor dam to my inventory? A: No, you do not have to add the donor dam to your inventory. However, a recipient cow inventory fee for each ET calf will be billed if the calf is recorded with birth

performance information — birth weight. A recipient inventory fee will not be billed if birth performance information is not reported. Q: If I jointly own a dam with someone else but I don’t have physical possession of the dam and will not be registering her calf, how should I designate her on my inventory? A: If you multi-own a dam with someone else, you will want to make sure you keep the dam on your inventory. However, if you are not the member who will be registering her calf, you will want to mark her as “CE12 Multi-owned, no calf.” Q: I have females which do not show up on my inventory. Why? A: Remember, females will not appear on the inventory until they have reached at least 18 months of age. Heifers should only be enrolled on the inventory if they are bred to calve in the season described — in this instance, fall 2019.

Dad’s

Great Advice

M

ost registered breeders scour the country looking for the ideal bull (correct genealogy, great body conformation, longevity, growth factor and disposition) for their herd. We certainly are no exception and have really been impressed by Day Zato Tone 943, pictured below, who would have been 20 this year and was a frame 5½ with a mature weight of 2,300 lb. We are currently using three grandsons via three different sires and a great-grandson. Three of the four were fall calves with no creep feed and mothers on dead grass and protein cubes only. Yet, they all weaned off at seven months with ACTUAL weights in excess of 700 lb. Dad often told us boys (I was the eldest of his five sons) that men search everywhere for the correct bull but then marry any girl that comes along. NOW which really is more important your CALVES or your CHILDREN? His point was, “Use your HEAD as well as your heart when choosing a mate,” since it

For performance-tested Hazlett-Turner Ranch bloodlines

determines half of what your children will be. We have noticed the same is true of these high-performance 943 bull offspring. They are strong in the bloodlines of his mother. The mother of 943 and the mothers that produced these fine sires are all strong in TR Zato Heir 394 and Zelda 28 breeding. Most older breeders know of the size of 394 and his show record. We purchased Zelda 28 (a Hazlett-Turner Ranch bred daughter of TR Zato Heir 25) in the 1967 Texas dispersion of Hull-Dobbs Ranch. She was 14 years of age with a heifer calf at side and rebred with a full sister in dam. What a great influence she has been in our herd. Yes, the GIRLS matter in both HUMANS and CATTLE. We invite you to see for yourself what nearly 60 years of HazlettTurner breeding has produced for us in quality, performance and disposition.

Lasting Impressions

Overcoming Fear by Austin Matheny

Days come and go, but the best part about life is memories that will last a lifetime. All of us are on a different path creating our own, unique story. Luckily, I have memories from my childhood that encouraged me to pursue my goals and to follow a path that would challenge me. Without the knowledge and wisdom gained from all of life’s experiences, I would have not grown to be the individual I am today. I can truly say my time serving on the National Junior

Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors has made one of the largest impacts on my life.

Reflection I can remember heading to my first Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) with my family in Milwaukee, Wis. It does not seem like long ago that I was the little chubby-cheeked boy showing for the first time. Throughout the week, I had my eyes on the juniors in the maroon jackets. In the showring and out of the showring, they were an inspiration to me. The older I got and the more JNHEs I attended, the more I realized the influence the junior board has on our association. I set a goal to follow in my parents’ footsteps and the many other juniors I looked up to, to be an NJHA director one day. But accomplishing this goal wasn’t going to be easy. You see, I am not a natural speaker, and my first time giving a public speech was more terrifying than rewarding. It was my sophomore year of high school, and I was an officer for our FFA chapter. At the banquet, we were each required to read a portion of the script. My time to speak was nearing, and I was nervous to speak in front of a big crowd. When the microphone was handed to me, my nerves made it nearly impossible to deliver my portion of the script. When we left that night, I convinced myself I couldn’t be a leader because I wasn’t the best at public speaking. I didn’t realize then I was going to be a leader in a different way and, in turn, would be prepared to lead our association. Throughout high school, I was heavily involved with our football team. I was the team captain

and helped lead my team to state quarter finals my senior year. This position was more my style of leadership — no public speaking required, just making sure the job at hand was accomplished. Needless to say, I was in my comfort zone as team captain. This experience taught me how to work with a team and how to be a confident leader.

In preparation When it came time to run for the junior board three years ago, I was hesitant at first. I had the desire to serve the association, but the thought of giving a speech still terrified me. Through my time in football, I was prepared to lead others. My family was persistent and kept encouraging me to run. I knew to be a director I needed to face my fear and to work hard on my public speaking skills. I turned in my application and began conquering my fear of public speaking. In the weeks leading up to the JNHE, my sister and I would spend our evenings working with our heifers and practicing my speech delivery and preparing to answer questions. Football taught me practice was the only way I was going to get better. No matter how uncomfortable I was, I knew, in the end, this extra effort was going to pay off. It seemed as if those few weeks leading up to JNHE flew by and Taylor Belle and I began practicing more often to make sure I was ready to achieve the goal I had set for myself early on. Before I knew it, my family and I were loaded up for another road trip to the JNHE in Madison, Wis. I was nervous to campaign and to give a speech to the junior membership. The week flew by, and it was now Hereford.org


time for me to deliver the speech I had worked so hard to perfect. I made my way to the podium, found my sister in the crowd and began my speech. A few minutes in I realized I wasn’t the nervous young boy in a blue corduroy jacket. In fact, I was doing pretty well. I was proud of myself that evening, no matter how

the election turned out. As I’m sure you guessed, I made it onto the junior board that week and began my term serving the association of which I am proud to be a member. To those juniors who are uncertain and nervous about serving on the junior board, even though it is in

your heart to make a difference, I encourage you to take the leap to apply. I believe everything good in life comes through hard work and dedication. My best advice to you, as a junior, is to face the challenges on your path because you never know where they may lead you.

Inspirational Juniors by Brooke Hinojosa-Sidwell

Looking back at the summer of 2016, I was completely unsure of where the road might take me besides Stillwater, Okla. I was fresh out of high school with big dreams, but I did not know where to start. I knew I was going to run for the NJHA board of directors, but I was still uncertain about how I would leave my mark if elected. While I was sitting in the stands waiting to see if I was one of the select few to receive an iconic maroon jacket, I was so nervous. I remember thinking to myself, “What if I am fortunate enough to get the next jacket? What am I going to do?” Before I even knew it, I was one of the newest on the NJHA board of directors. This blessing felt so surreal, yet I was still questioning how to leave my mark.

Purpose fulfilled Soon after the election, my purpose revealed itself. The day after the awards banquet, a young lady’s mother came up to me and congratulated me. Not only did she congratulate me, but she also told a short story of how I had inspired her daughter to do her hair just like mine. Looking back, this is small scale, but it made me realize my purpose was to inspire young juniors. Spring rolled around quicker than I thought, and it was time to start thinking about what shows to attend. My first year, I signed up for the Texas Junior Hereford State Show. This state show is one of my favorite memories. I remember showing up at the fairgrounds knowing only a few juniors and a few parents. Before I knew it, I had multiple buddies who wanted me to join a water fight with them. Hereford.org

The water fight continued for almost an hour, and this is where I made some new friends. These new friends continued to be some of the young juniors who always greet me when we see one another. Joining in the water fight was one of the best ways I influenced many young juniors. To this day parents of those young Texas juniors still visit with me about how much they enjoyed seeing so many young kids having so much fun because a “big kid” was playing their game. Again, something simple and small can mean so much. After attending the Texas show, I had high expectations of juniors at the next show. Fortunately enough, the next show I attended was the Red Dirt Rendezvous in Stillwater. The Red Dirt show was nothing short of amazing. The young juniors and parents I met while attending this show are secondto-none. I spent a whole day getting to hear some juniors’ stories and spent time with them and their cattle. Their stories encouraged me to be the best role model I could possibly be for them. I am thankful to have found my second home with such supportive peers. Little did I know that I had met my second family at the Red Dirt Rendezvous. Not only did this family become my second family, they became my employer!

She continues to work hard and does not let anything tear her down. Little does she know she has inspired me to be the best version I can be to inspire other young juniors to get involved and to chase their dreams. I am sure you all are wondering why I have talked about how I have influenced all of these juniors and not how they have influenced me. The answer to that question and the life lesson is this: When you are focused on making a difference in the life of someone else, you don’t realize the impact that individual has left on you until after the fact. All of the juniors I have met over my three-year term have made a huge impact on my life and have encouraged me to be the best I can be. I encourage each and every junior to be a unique version of yourself. Go out of your way to make new friends, learn their stories and keep in touch. These are some of the best lessons I have taken away from everyone I have met through the junior board. You never know the mark you can leave on someone, and you certainly do not realize the mark they have left on you until you step away and reflect. Thank you, NJHA members, for leaving your mark on me.

A special bond Last but certainly not least, there is this young girl from Texas I have greatly influenced. We met each other in Kansas City during my third year on the board, but it feels as if we have known each other our whole lives. Not only have I influenced this young girl, but she has also left her mark on me. Getting to know her and her family this past year has been a true blessing. July 2019 |

Providing Your Ladder to Success Join the National Junior Hereford Association for the 2019 Faces of Leadership Conference in Lincoln, Neb., July 30-Aug. 3. by Adrian Austin

H

ereford junior members are scheduled to gather this summer in the Cornhusker State for the 2019 Faces of Leadership Conference July 30-Aug. 3 in Lincoln. The annual four-day event, made possible by Rick and Bonnie Coley-Malir and the Hereford Youth

30

| July 2019

Foundation of America, will host nearly 100 participants ages 14-21. During their time at the Nebraska Innovation Campus (NIC) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), attendees will listen to nationally-recognized speakers and participate in junior board workshops, which will assist in the enhancement of each individual’s leadership talents, communication skills and will encourage working in team settings. “Faces of Leadership is a great opportunity for emerging leaders in the Hereford breed,” says Hannah Williams, National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) director and Nebraska native. “The past few years I have learned so much about my personal growth as a leader and how to grow in leadership within the breed. This conference has provided me skills that I have been able to bring back to my state association and use to improve our leadership team. I believe it is important for junior members to attend this event and gain a better knowledge of the Hereford breed, make lifelong friends from across the country

and learn how to become a more distinguished leader.” Williams’ excitement is drawn from both the conference being hosted in her home state and the opportunity for Hereford youth to experience the newest addition to UNL campus. The NIC Conference Center has been reconstructed to provide a unique full-service conference venue to UNL and will provide a spacious, interactive area where conference members can engage and learn.

Itinerary sneak peek Faces of Leadership will kick off Tuesday afternoon with a session on utilizing personal strengths led by Lindsey Hastings, director of the Nebraska Human Resources Institute. Team-building exercises will follow as members develop a better understanding of their own personal strengths in a group setting. Wednesday will be a fun-filled, informative day, as attendees will learn from Tom Field, PhD, director of the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program and Hereford.org


holder of the Engler Chair in Entrepreneurship at UNL. Field will emphasize Engler’s core belief that one idea can be transformed into an enterprise as well as share his own self-proclaimed passion for the potential of young people. Samuel Lawrence, NJHA director, shares his outlook on what members can gain from Faces of Leadership and the entrepreneurial opportunities this year’s conference will offer. “Faces of Leadership is unique because it’s something different than our typical cattle events,” Lawrence says. “It’s awesome gathering with other youth members to learn and develop without the hustle and bustle of a livestock show surrounding us. I’m particularly excited for a theme of entrepreneurship at this year’s conference. I’m eager to learn about how to develop my own ideas, while becoming a better leader and business person.” Amidst the theme of entrepreneurship, youth will also have the opportunity to hear from Matt Davison, associate athletic director for UNL football. A former Husker football and basketball player, Davison will share how

to become a successful individual who can also contribute to team goals. The jam-packed day will come to a close with a few rounds of mini golf and a pizza buffet. During Thursday sessions, attendees will collaborate on a project and will present their projects to see which team comes out on top. Members will take in a Lincoln Salt Dogs baseball game later that evening. On Friday, conference participants will tour the Food Innovation Center on UNL’s Innovation Campus and also visit UNL’s animal science department. To round out the event, attendees will head to Dunlap, Iowa, for a tour of Sullivan Supply’s headquarters. “Attending Faces of Leadership is a great way for junior members to learn about the industry, network with peers and gain leadership skills they can use for years to come,” shares Taylor Belle Matheny, NJHA director and communications chair. “From my time as a junior member I remember the fun atmosphere at each Faces of Leadership conference

and the ability to see so many unique parts of the country. It was a highlight of my junior career and one I encourage everyone to participate in at least once.” Similar to the rest of her peers, Matheny was quick to share this year’s conference will be one for the books. “I would encourage anyone who is considering the 2019 Faces of Leadership to register now. This will be one of our best conferences yet because of the opportunities available at the University of Nebraska.” The final deadline for registration is July 15.

Foundation’s Focus

Dollars at Work

by Ray Ramsey

The mission statement of the Hereford Youth Foundation of American (HYFA) is as follows: “The Hereford Youth Foundation of America provides leadership, scholarship and educational opportunities by encouraging, recognizing and rewarding the development of life skills and values in our Hereford youth.” In carrying out our mission, the HYFA strives to be recognized as the beef industry’s premier foundation for developing talented, passionate and effective young leaders. We have tried diligently as a board to make our mission statement as inclusive as possible of our goals at HYFA, however, the mission statement does not address how these efforts will be funded.

Thanks to our many gracious donors, we have made very good progress growing the HYFA program not only in dollars but also in the scope of activities and opportunities HYFA can provide for Hereford youth.

Board members at work So, to ask the question our HYFA board often discusses: What are the duties of the HYFA board? At first glance they seem, very simply, to get more donors in order to have more funds to facilitate more assistance for the youth programs. However, this responsibility is not the entire story. Our mission is also to keep this foundation permanently funded for generations to come. Our leadership strives to aggressively grow the HYFA stock

US D ll

portfolio in order to keep all the scholarships funded. However, the investments must not be so risk adverse as to jeopardize the initial donor’s investments so each scholarship can go on into perpetuity. The finance committee of the HYFA board set an investment policy dedicated to utilizing as much profit potential that exists in the stock market, while also protecting the initial core investment given by our named donors. If you follow the charts below, you can see the HYFA has been able to withstand the highs and lows in the volatile stock market to accomplish our mission.

Communications Corner

One of a Kind

It’s crazy to think a whole month has gone by since Hereford breeders came to Kansas City, Mo., to become stronger marketers for their operation and the Hereford breed by partaking in “The Brand” Marketing Summit.

Reflection With more than 220 participants from 28 states and Canada, Hereford enthusiasts were out in full force and ready to take on the challenges they face when it comes to their marketing strategy. The audience was ambitious, enthusiastic and committed to the things they were doing to make a difference in the industry. While many understand the importance of marketing, organizing a strategy seems to get pushed to the backburner because of other things taking precedence — calves need vaccinating, cows need feeding, fields need planting. Therefore, the American Hereford Association (AHA) hosted The Brand Marketing Summit to help Hereford breeders develop a streamlined marketing plan. The two-day event was full of creativity and innovation and

Together, we successfully learned how to tell the story of so many powerful brands and the one we all have in common — the Hereford breed. From company success stories, hands-on learning and even a keynote by a Kansas City celebrity, there was something for everyone. I

invite you to read more about The Brand on Page 43. The beautiful thing about a marketing conference like this is we all come from different operations and different parts of the country, making it really easy to get into a competitive spirit. The Brand brought all of the breeders together, got them under the same roof and got them thinking about sharing the same message about the Hereford breed. We were all able to come together for the common goal of making the entire breed better — and, in turn, making the beef industry better as well. To those who attended this first-of-its kind event, thank you. I hope you enjoyed the event and were able to take something home that has made a difference in the way you communicate to your customers within your marketing strategy. I look forward to seeing your new strategies in the coming months. Kendra Davis is the American Hereford Association’s director of marketing and communications.

Hereford Women

Ranch Women of the Old West

by Sandra Ostgaard

Women certainly made very important contributions to America’s Western frontier. There are some interesting stories about the introduction of women in the West — particularly as cattlewomen and wives of ranchers. These women were not typical cowgirls. The frontier woman worked hard in difficult settings and contributed in a big way to civilizing the West. For the most part, women married to ranchers were brought to the frontier after the male established himself. Conditions were rough in the decade after the Civil War, making it difficult for men to provide suitable living conditions for themselves, much less their wives. Most aspiring ranchers thought the conditions just too harsh for women. The idea at the time was to establish oneself in the ranching industry and then to

return to one’s hometown to find a bride — or if the individual had a wife, to make arrangement to take her out West. This was the beginning of adventure for many a frontier woman.

Susan McSween Susan McSween (Dec. 30, 1845Jan. 3, 1931) was a prominent cattlewoman of the 19th century. Once called the “Cattle Queen of New Mexico,” the widow of Alexander McSween, who was a leading factor in the Lincoln County War and was shot and killed by members of the Murphy-Dolan faction. Susan married McSween Aug. 23, 1873, in Atchison, Kan., and settled in Eureka, Kan. In 1875 the couple moved to Lincoln, N.M., where McSween accepted a job with the company of Lawrence Murphy. Working alongside James Dolan, McSween soon lost his desire to work for the company and became friends with John Tunstall, a wealthy English rancher. Through Tunstall, the couple met John Chisum, and by 1877 the three men had established a rival business to the Murphy-Dolan businesses. The Murphy-Dolan faction was backed by the infamous Santa Fe Ring. Problems soon developed, and when outlaw Jesse Evans and members of the Santa Fe Ring shot and killed Tunstall, the Lincoln County War began. By that time, Tunstall and McSween had hired gunmen to counter those hired by MurphyDolan. While the latter hired outlaw gangs like the Seven Rivers Warriors, the John Kinney Gang

and the Jesse Evans Gang, Tunstall hired individuals, including Billy the Kid, Chavez y Chavez, Dick Brewer, Charlie Bowdre and Doc Scurlock. The two factions clashed over Tunstall’s death, with numerous people being killed by both sides and culminating in the Battle of Lincoln, where Susan was present. Her husband was killed at the end of the battle, despite being unarmed and attempting to surrender. Susan struggled in the aftermath of the Lincoln County War to make ends meet in the New Mexico Territory. She sought and received help from Tunstall’s family in England. She served as the executor of Tunstall’s and her husband’s estates, managing to free herself of their accrued debts by liquidating the estate assets. In 1880 she married George Barber, a young law clerk and later attorney, who aided in her recovery. Barber’s work as a surveyor for John Chisum resulted in Chisum gifting 40 head of cattle to Susan — worth about $400 to start her into the cattle business. Later the couple divorced. Susan took over 1,158 acres of land on the west side of the Mescalero Apache Indian Reservation in the years after the Lincoln County War. By 1890 she ran at least 5,000 head of cattle under the Three Rivers Cattle Co. brand in Three Rivers, N.M. In the mid-1890s her ranch holdings were some of the largest in the territory. She became extremely wealthy through cattle sales and mining a small silver vein on the property. She was also known for the fruit orchards she planted with trees she obtained from John Chisum.

Prints

“Timeless” is an original pencil drawing by Dino Cornay which effortlessly depicts the permanent stamp the Hereford breed has placed on the beef industry. The drawing brings to life a horned and polled Hereford bull with a young calf, representing the generations of history and progress within the breed. The mesas and beautiful blue skies of Northeastern New Mexico are home to highly respected pencil artist, Dino Cornay. Cornay’s work has been recognized in numerous publications and he has participated in a variety of invitational shows. Most all of Cornay’s originals are spoken for by private collectors before completion, however, he is excited to partner with the AHA and the HYFA to offer these prints.

There are only 200 prints available, numbered and signed by Cornay. Once they are gone, no more will be available. This print will make a great gift for Hereford enthusiasts. This limited print is available for $150, including shipping and handling. To order your print go to: shophereford.com

Our Breed,

Our Brand ‘The Brand’ Marketing Summit unites Hereford breeders for a shared cause — promoting the Hereford brand. by Diane Meyer

I

t is no secret Hereford cattle offer many sought-after traits in the cattle industry, but these advantages can be easily dismissed without an effective marketing approach. Amidst the who, what, when, where and why’s of marketing looms the “how.” How can Hereford producers share their message with fellow cattlemen, feedlots and, ultimately, consumers? How can they strengthen and better position the Hereford breed? With these challenges in mind, the American Hereford Association (AHA) and Vermeer Corporation hosted “The Brand” Marketing Summit to help producers build and grow their marketing strategies. This first-of-its-kind event, featuring

Team Hereford is all of us breeders, all working together, with a common goal of promoting Herefords and then, hopefully, promoting our own brand. Pete Atkins AHA president Atkins Herefords, Tea, S.D

professionals representing all sectors of the cattle industry, brought together more than 200 Hereford enthusiasts from the U.S. and Canada to Kansas City, Mo., June 3-4. At the conference, attendees learned how to balance traditional and digital platforms to connect with current and potential customers. Most importantly, participants walked away with a renewed sense of pride in promoting the Hereford breed. “This marketing summit has really brought all the Hereford

breeders together, and got them under the same roof thinking about the same things and sharing the same message about the Hereford breed,” says Kendra Davis, AHA director of communications and public relations. “We are all able to come together for the common good of making the entire breed better and, in turn, making the beef industry a better thing as well.” Please enjoy the following recap of this phenomenal event. continued on page 44...

Day 1: Charting a Course If we can harness all of this energy and harness all of the knowledge and then go apply it through these different producers’ businesses and how they market Hereford genetics, we can make a sizable footprint on the industry. Shane Bedwell AHA COO and director of breed improvement

The Hereford Brand Although every Hereford operation is unique, each one provides a common product — Hereford genetics. The key to marketing any commodity or service is to promote its value in terms of strengths, efficiencies and differentiation. To spearhead the conference, attendees were given a comprehensive overview of the breed in order to advocate the Hereford brand in their individual marketing plans. Presenter Shane Bedwell, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement, highlighted the breed’s marked advantage in efficiency, maternal heterosis and end-product merit. “Whether with our own membership, our customer base, commercial cattlemen or the consumer, we have to be able to stay in front and continue to tell the message we have,” Bedwell says. “The day that we stop is the day that we become complacent.”

Anne-Marie Roerink shared the power beef holds in the retail industry. “Retailers love meat, and beef drives a lot of that dollar.”

The Power of Meat The beef industry is a complex system, shaped by multiple levels of production yet driven by one — the consumer. In an insightful presentation, Anne-Marie Roerink, principal at 210 Analytics, LLC, shared her research on the wants and needs of grocery shoppers in a one-size-fits-no-one world. Ultimately, the direction of the beef industry is determined by consumer preferences, and beef’s identity as a top protein source is dependent upon producers meeting consumer demands. “Fifteen years ago, Millennials were in the very beginning of their family and independent living and now they are the biggest buying generation, so it definitely affects how people need to merchandise,” Roerink says. “But if you go to most grocery stores, the meat case today still looks exactly the way it looked 15 years ago. One of the main things we try to interact with folks on is

Bedwell guided attendees through marketable traits and growth trends within the breed, emphasizing Hereford’s documented feed efficiency, fertility and longevity — strengths that all increase profitability.

I think the key takeaway is to stay informed in order to be able to arm your customers with the most knowledge and the most vital information to help them produce the best product. That way it keeps us all in the business, and it keeps beef at the center of the plate. Terri Barber Barber Ranch Channing, Texas

to keep in mind your shopper has changed… From producers on down the line all the way to what you see in the meat department has to change accordingly to make sure we meet the wants and needs of the consumer.”

Establish your ‘True North’ Once the direction of the breed and the industry was identified, it was time to hone in on the direction of each operation. To wrap up afternoon sessions, Mark Core led participants through a series of exercises to establish their “True North” — the ideal, or state of perfection, a business should strive toward. A Truth North directional compass serves as a reference tool to base every management and investment decision and to provide context for all marketing content. To establish their directional compass, breeders brainstormed Hereford.org

ease of using simple digital tools to create an instant, marketable message. “The Hereford Brand summit was a great learning experience for me and especially the video activity,” says Bruce Everhart, Everhart Herefords, Waldron, Ind. “We were asked to shoot a quick video introducing our herd and history and then post this on Facebook. While I was nervous about the video, I was amazed at how well it was received and the comments that were made. What I learned was people want to hear your message about your herd of Hereford cattle. [I look] forward to more opportunities to tell our Hereford story.

Instant videographers Every geographic area is different. Finding our compass is something that’s very important for all of us to do. Conferences like this are fantastic for getting us all together because it helps us to develop one voice and it makes our breed stronger. Dana Pieper Pieper Land and Cattle Co. Zurich, Kan.

and identified their business’ internal and external strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities, and customer personas. “You have got to be known for something that’s better than anybody

Following Monday’s sessions, guests gathered at the AHA headquarters for an evening social. While enjoying a delicious short rib dinner, catered by Valley Oaks, Oak Grove, Mo., attendees made a go at recording promotional videos to share on their social media accounts. Facilitated by Vermeer staff, the activity allowed participants to record a short video describing their respective operations and then to upload the video to a social media channel.

Special live auction raises nearly $50,000 In true Team Hereford fashion, supporters of the breed banded together to raise $47,350 to benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and the Hereford Research Foundation (HRF). “Timeless,” a graphite original drawing done by acclaimed artist Dino Cornay, headlined the special live auction held June 3 at Howl at the Moon in downtown Kansas City, Mo., in conjunction with “The Brand” Marketing Summit. As auctioneer Lander Nicodemus led the chant, buyers Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas; Bill King Ranch, Moriarty, N.M.; Colyer Herefords & Angus, Bruneau, Idaho; and Cottonwood Springs, Cedar, Mich., teamed up to place the winning bid for $27,000. The syndicate graciously donated the drawing to be hung in the American Hereford Association (AHA) headquarters in Kansas City. Cornay, who traveled from his hometown of Folsom, N.M., to be present for the auction, was humbled at the enthusiasm shown for the drawing and for the cause. “I am extremely honored to be the artist selected for this project portraying a great breed of cattle and to have worked with some fabulous people, including the directors and those that purchased the art,” Cornay says. “It is also an honor to be part of a great scholarship program for our young leaders and to have the original drawing hanging at the national Hereford headquarters in Kansas City.” Lots 2 and 3, two giclées of the original, found homes with EE Ranches, Dallas, and Flying S Herefords, Dallas.

Other items sold were two director’s chairs donated by Classic Leather Designs and purchased by Everhart Farms, Waldron, Ind., and Holden Herefords, Valier, Mont.; two AHA branded hides purchased by Olsen Ranches, Harrisburg, Neb., and Mohican Polled Hereford Farms, Glenmont, Ohio; and an AHA branding iron purchased by Dudley Bros. Herefords, Comanche, Texas. “The support of our breeders to continue educational, leadership, scholarship and research opportunities for Hereford youth was once again highlighted,” says Amy Cowan, AHA director of youth activities. “Please help us in saying thank you to those who bid and purchased to allow future generations to uphold the tradition of the Hereford brand.” July 2019 |

Day 2: Building a Tool Kit

Mitch Holthus encouraged producers to step out for change in their operations to increase their success. A Kansas native, Mitch Holthus unites the Chiefs Kingdom by describing Kansas City as “the middle of everything” — not “the middle of nowhere.”

Morning motivation Kicking off Tuesday morning was the Voice of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mitch Holthus. The 26-year National Football League broadcaster shared a motivational message about applying his agricultural background to unite the Chiefs organization and fan base. He discussed his “5 C’s for Success” — cooperation, creative, courage, confidence and conduit — and how producers can apply those principles in marketing and growing their operations. “Perception is not reality. Truth is reality,” Holthus says. “We have the best protein opportunities in the world. That’s why the rest of the world would love to have what we have. But we have to understand, too, that we have to take some courage in doing this right, doing it different, and how this works, because the world still depends on us.”

Maximize your sale revenue at sale time Come sale time, there are key areas for maximizing revenue as well as pitfalls to avoid in the other direction. Bill Dunn, Dunn Herefords; Mark Johnson, Producers Livestock Marketing; and Jason Barber, Superior Livestock, along with moderator Mark Core, provided tips to increase sale time profits. As all three presenters would attest, receiving top dollar requires a year-round marketing effort based on top-notch customer service. Additionally, it is critical producers go the extra mile in their calf management to ensure animals that go to sell are consistently high quality. “The next owner of this calf needs to make money, too, or

he’s not going to come back,” Jason Barber says. “If we can do a better job getting [calves] ready, if we can continue to improve the performance in them from a genetic standpoint, we can continue to gain market share.”

We started offering to background our customers’ calves for th m, group them with other calves and market them that way, and that service has really driven the bull business for us. We have been able to add value to our bulls and find new bull customers simply because we were offering that service. Bill Dunn Dunn Herefords Cochranton, Penn.

If I’m going to give you a suggestion to take back to your operation, [whether] in Canada, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, Vermont, it is you can’t be afraid of being a freshman again. It is the characteristic of the men and the women who make it in the National Football League as careers. Mitch Holthus Kansas City Chiefs

On day two of The Brand, presenters shared ways to maximize profit potential through both traditional and digital avenues. Hereford.org


Herefords On Demand will take promotion of Hereford seedstock to an all new level. Joe Rickabaugh AHA director of field management and seedstock marketing

Herefords On Demand Next up, AHA Creative Services Coordinator Samantha Albers announced the launch of Herefords On Demand, a new online sale catalog service offered by Hereford Publications Inc. This streamlined digital tool features clean lot layouts with “live” expected progeny differences (EPDs) and detailed search capabilities. Albers discussed how Herefords On Demand can serve breeders of all sizes in marketing their products. “This is a very unique resource for Hereford cattle breeders with any size of herd to use in marketing their sale offerings and operations,” she says. “The innovative system, designed with clean and simple layouts and paired with refreshed data and search functions, will excel the idea of marketing for the Hereford breed.”

Using video to your advantage Videos are one of the most effective ways to connect with an audience. As photographer and videographer Paige Arnold explains, videos allow for a personable and emotional connection that creates a two-way conversation. Case in point is Jason Hoffman, Hoffman Ranches, Thedford, Neb., who worked with Arnold on a video to

capture the essence of the Hoffman family’s operation. Hoffman says the video took a whole different direction to what he saw coming. In addition to adding more depth to buyer and seller relationships, he describes how video marketing resonates with a diverse audience, particularly consumers. “There’s so many ties back to traditional agriculture, and people want to see those videos,” Hoffman says. “Being able to tell your story from the right locations of your operation is huge, and people need to see you drifting through cattle, and the ease you take in the approach, but also the business side of it and how many people it affects.”

Attendees received one-on-one coaching in the Social Media 101 session.

Using social media to your advantage

Marketing is key to everything, and we are definitely picking up quite a bit here. We are going to be more aggressive on Facebook, utilize more video, and we will probably use some drone technology. We want to let people know as much about us as we can — we want to be transparent. Bob Harrell Jr. Harrell Herefords, Baker City, Ore.

Social media 101 and 102 Social media is emerging as a popular tool for livestock buyers. According to a 2019 Ranch House Designs report, 37 percent of buyers receive livestock information on Facebook. In two different breakout sessions, attendees learned the ins and outs of social media based on their familiarity and experience with social platforms. Kendra Davis, AHA director of communications and public relations, and Jessica Moffitt, Vermeer, worked one-on-one with participants in Social Media 101 to get them started on different platforms. Meanwhile, Vermeer team members Mark Core and John Reasor; Kali Andersen, Lessing-Flynn; and Kylee Deniz, National Pork Board, took a deep dive into content development in the Social Media 102 session.

Social media use among livestock producers is on the rise, and rightfully so. In a Q&A style discussion, Kylee Deniz, National Pork Board, and Natalie Kovarik and JaTanna Williams of Ranch Wives Beef Co., shared how they utilize social media, particularly Instagram, to communicate transparency about the beef industry. Kovarik and Williams described how social media platforms create trust and build connections with followers. In addition to sharing stories of the ranching community, social platforms are very cost effective — in fact, they are completely free to set up and use. Most importantly, social platforms allow businesses to be genuine. “Authenticity is definitely the key to building your community,” says Williams. “Authenticity — show up, be yourself, don’t get dressed up for the camera… be your true self. You have your customers that you have been talking to face-toface for years and you have a genuine soul and something they love about that. Take that and launch that into the social media world.” I think what we just witnessed in the last couple days is the ideal state of [what] an association is all about.

Hereford Drive

Hereford Through the Ages A glimpse back at the history of the American Hereford Association. by Diane Meyer

W

hen author, historian and former American Hereford Journal editor Donald R. Ornduff introduced his 1957 historical manuscript, The Hereford in America, he summarized its purpose with the following quote: “I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past.” — American statesman Patrick Henry The American Hereford Association (AHA) is an organization with immense history, one with a unique chronicle of turning points that have advanced the breed, its breeders and the beef

industry. History is just as much a part of our identity as are our white-faced cattle. When the AHA moved to its present headquarters in February 2018, an idea came to light to build a mural of major events which have shaped the organization thus far. This timeline now graces the entrance of the Association’s office, giving way to a collection of noteworthy Hereford artifacts and artwork. As the saying goes, “Never look back except to see how far you’ve come.” Before we continue the Hereford Drive, let’s take a moment to review the many miles we have traveled over the last 300 years. Please enjoy the following display of prominent moments which have transformed the AHA into a leading breed association of the 21st century.

A shot of “Hereford Country” in the “Yards” at the National Western Stock Show serves as the backdrop of the AHA timeline mural.

Benjamin Tomkins, the “Younger,” purchases two cows called Pigeon and Mottle at the Kingston fair. Along with a bull called Silver 41, a decendant of the original Silver cow of his grandfather’s, begins the formation of three distinct strains of cattle the Tomkinses were famous for.

The bull “Giant” was born and is the first bull registered in the American Polled Hereford Cattle Club.

Warren Gammon notices naturally hornless Herefords at the TransMississippi World’s Fair in Omaha, Neb. Richard Tomkins bequeaths a cow name Silver and her calf to son Benjamin Tomkins.

The American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) is organized.

Pictured here is a cow named Silver, bred by George Tomkins, nephew of Benjamin the “Younger.” This female was born in 1806 and is believed to trace back to the original Silver cow that was started by Richard Tomkins. Known as the Mother of the Breed, the Silver line has been well-documented as cattle with red bodies, a white face and having more or less white along the back. The Tomkinses are credited as the first improvers and breeders of Hereford cattle and are regarded as being remarkable judges of stock.

Hayes Walker Sr. founds the American Hereford Journal.

The American Hereford Cattle Breeders Association is organized (name later changes to American Hereford Association - AHA). Charles Gudgell and Thomas A. Simpson of Missouri import Anxiety 4, a bull credited as being the “Father of American Herefords.”

Benjamin Tomkins marries Anne, they have six children, one of which is Benjamin Tomkins, the “Younger,” born in 1745. Benjamin Tomkins, the “Elder,” maintains the Silver strain that is later inherited by Benjamin Tomkins, the “Younger.”

William H. Sotham and Erastus Corning, Albany, N.Y., begin the first U.S. Hereford breeding herd.

The AHA sets major milestone of registering more than 560,000 head. A remarkable feat that is yet to be surpassed by any other beef breed association.

The first Polled Hereford World is published.

President of the U.S., Dwight D. Eisenhower, dedicates the second AHA headquarters at 715 Hereford Dr., Kansas City, Mo.

The AHA is the first beef breed association to own its own headquarters. Permanent residence is established at 300 W. 11th St., Kansas City, Mo.

Henry Clay, Kentucky statesman, brings Herefords to the United States.

Though first imported in 1817, it was in 1840 that the first Hereford herd was established by the partnership of Erastus Corning and William H. Sotham with 22 head Sotham had selected in Herefordshire and imported. Sotham was an early and militant breed promoter, remaining so during his long and eventful life.

Hereford.org

Though not completed at the time, the headquarters building of the AHA at 715 Hereford Dr. was sufficiently finished to provide for dedication ceremonies in October 1953. Presiding was AHA President Herbert Chandler who introduced the President of the U.S., Dwight D. Eisenhower, who made a formal dedication. Due to delay caused by an extended strike in the building industry, the building was not ready for occupancy until April 1954.

The AHA is the first company in Kansas City to own a mainframe computer that was not only used for AHA business but was also utilized by other Kansas City businesses through contract work. The AHA allows for calves produced by AI to be registered.

Officially starting the use of AHA’s first computer — the IBM 1401 System that included magnetic tape memory storage — in May 1961, was HR Silver Image 70, the champion bull of the 1961 National Western Stock Show. The bull, bred by Herschede Ranch, Springerville, Ariz., was brought to the AHA building and led into the data processing center. There he stepped on a special switch that put in motion the equipment that produced the bull’s complete pedigree back to Volume 1 of the English Hereford Herd Book.

The APHA introduces the Guide Lines Program to encourage the use of tools most effective in bringing about herd inprovement. The AHA also starts measuring performance, first through the Herd Sire Feedlot and Carcass program.

In the picture are Everett Stoll, data processing manager; AHA Secretary Paul Swaffar; Homer Jennings, IBM Corporation representative; AHA President Earl H. Monahan; Joh Gottfried, owner of Hillcrest Farm, Pocahontas, Ill., who purchased the bull in the Denver sale at $30,500; and Don Core, Hillcrest Farm manager.

Hereford Drive

Hallowed Ground Kansas City’s West Bottoms — home of the American Royal and the stockyards — played a central role in the growth of Hereford cattle. by Eric Grant

T

he West Bottoms, a stretch of prairie at the base of the river bluffs that now comprises downtown Kansas City, Mo., enjoys a storied history stretching back more than two centuries.

Typical of the great terminal stockyards at Chicago, Omaha, Denver, Ft. Worth and Kansas City was this “birdseye view” of the Kansas City Market which was organized in 1871.

French-Indian settlers constructed a permanent settlement there in the early 1800s, trading with local tribes and farming its rich soil. Explorers Lewis and Clark came through the area in 1804, noting in their journal the region’s strategic significance and potential for economic commerce. But it was the railroad — and the rise of the American cattle industry — in the latter half of the 19th century that left the most significant footprint on the Bottoms. America was changing. Its cities were growing. Industrialization was reshaping the landscape. And people were hungry for beef. The trains made

The Kansas City Stockyards had a capacity of 25,000 cattle, 35,000 hogs and 15,000 sheep. As in other yards, take the Herefords out and most pens would have been empty.

The champion herd of the National Hereford Show, headed by the famous Dale-Property of Mr. F.A. Nave, Attica, Ind. The American Hereford Association (AHA) in 1899 was the first breed association to stage a national show. With C.R. Thomas, AHA secretary, as manager and held in tents at the Kansas City Stockyards, 541 head were shown. This was the forerunner of today’s American Royal Show. A two-day consignment sale held with the 1899 national show averaged $317 on some 300 head.

that possible, creating ways for the vast herds of the Western Plains to be gathered and shipped to stockyards in cities like Kansas City and Chicago.

Booming epicenter Established in 1872 on the Kansas side of the river, the Kansas City Stockyards was extended to the West Bottoms a few years later. All told, the facility comprised more than 55 acres, helping farmers and ranchers sell cattle, sheep, hogs, horses and mules. Commerce reached its peak in 1923, when 2.6 million head of cattle passed through the stockyards. About 45 percent were purchased by nearby packing houses; the remainder were shipped out for grazing or finishing. The rise of the stockyards paralleled the expansive rise of Herefords — and central to this growth was the American Royal. The show, which debuted in 1899, enabled Hereford breeders not only to exhibit their livestock but also to market their cattle to ranchers and farmers. The first show included 541 head of Hereford cattle, with 334 head sold for an average price of $334. More than 55,000 people attended. In fact, there was so much interest in the event that a permanent structure was built to house it in 1908. The American Hereford Association, recognizing the significance of the stockyards, built its first permanent headquarters in downtown Kansas City in 1920. A statue of a Hereford bull still stands watch over the historical West Bottoms, an iconic fixture on the Kansas City landscape. Flood and fires both took their toll on the stockyards, although the facility continued to operate in one form or another until 1991. But it was the upswing of the interstate highway system in the 1950s — which enabled ranchers to truck cattle to local markets rather than to transport

Hillcrest Farms, Pocahontas, Ill., exhibited the first group of three bulls at the American Royal.

them by train — that eventually spelled doom for the terminal markets. Even the American Royal, responding to changes in consumers and the economic landscape, will be moving away from its centuries-old home to a more convenient and modern location several miles west of downtown Kansas City.

Just Willard Willard Wolf, Spokane, Wash., leaves a legacy of loyalty for cattle producers everywhere. by Kayla Jennings

A

ll a man really needs is a horse to catch when you need him, a dog that’ll come to a call, a good friend who owns an arena and a trailer that’s legal to haul; a woman who’ll share in frustrations when the cow market’s falling apart, a pair of good spurs, a saddle that fits and a pick-up that starts. Everything else is window dressing. Adapting from the lyrical virtuoso Cody Johnson, a cowboy does not require much to lead a life with a full heart. However, some do have the good fortune of experiences beyond the simple joys life has to offer. From the red dirt of Oklahoma to the marble steps in Washington, D.C., and the rocky terrain of the Northwest United States, Willard Wolf, Spokane, Wash., was undoubtedly one of those men. No introduction was needed for a cowboy like Willard among the cattle community. Like

superstars in other arts, no last name was looked for to know who he was. Fellow “Okie” and longtime friend Butch Booker affectionately notes Willard was as renowned in his sphere of influence as Pink, Cher and Madonna are in pop culture. This distinction does not come without merit. “He was knowledgeable, he was confident and he was fun,” Booker reflects. “He just tied it all together. He had the ability to connect with the rancher across the hood of a pickup and then go into the grocery store and connect with the meat cutter on the table.”

The journey Willard made his mark on the Hereford industry, no doubt. With an induction into the National Livestock Marketeers Hall of Fame and an American Hereford Association (AHA) Hall of Hereford.org


All his life, Willard had a keen sense of organization while providing encouragement and support to producers as they overcame political challenges, or otherwise, to get the job done.

Merit award to show for his dedication, no one can argue his commitment to Hereford breeders everywhere. He gained immense respect from cattlemen across all breeds and across all segments of the industry. The Oklahoma native’s affinity for the cattle industry was sparked during his childhood riding the range with other young cowboys on his family’s 300-head commercial Hereford cattle ranch adjacent to the Wichita Wildlife Refuge. His parents, Kenneth and Helen Wolf, sent him and his brother, Gordon, to Elgin High School, where Willard graduated as an honor student. Experience on his family operation, in tandem with his involvement in FFA, set him on a trajectory to study animal science and business law at Oklahoma State University (OSU). In Stillwater, Okla., this Poke could be found leading the charge in many livestock teams and clubs or buying and selling feeder cattle at the Oklahoma City Stockyards. After graduation, he took a post with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a livestock market news reporter working in Oklahoma City, San Francisco and Spokane, before being transferred to Washington, D.C. in 1965. His time in D.C. led him to a position with the Foreign Agriculture

Service, where he exported thousands of head of cattle, sheep, hogs and horses to many foreign countries. Those transactions included more than 5,000 head of Hereford cattle to Spain, Mexico, Portugal and Honduras. These appointments poised him for the ride of his life — a 33-year assignment as the Northwest Field Representative for the AHA. Willard made fast friends in the region while he served as a consultant, marketer, researcher and promoter of the Hereford breed. During his tenure, his influence spanned to junior members and beyond his territory to all over the United States and into Canada, Mexico and Australia. Over the course of his career he bought more than $12 million worth of Hereford bulls and females for ranchers. “He had the background before he ever went to work for the Hereford association, which proved to be very, very beneficial for him as a fieldman,” explains Dwayne Dietz, past AHA fieldman. “I would say Willard Wolf was probably the most well-rounded fieldman I’ve ever known because of the connections he had and the relationships he developed over the years.” Some of his more notable escapades are among the most unique cattle sales in history, such as the “Ladies in the Lobby” at the Historic Davenport hotel in Spokane, and “Ladies on the Boardwalk” on the floating dock at Coeur d’Alene Resort in Idaho. In fact, he even instigated the first ever registered cattle sale by satellite held at the Ag Trade Center in Spokane. Gary Kendall, retired sale manager and lifelong friend, had the good fortune of helping continued on page 82...

The floating stage was not reserved for musical sensations at the Ladies on the Boardwalk sale. Under Willard’s guidance, Hereford cattle took center stage to create competition for Hereford genetics.

Not many limo driver’s would allow a four-legged passenger on board. Likewise, not many ranchers would want their calf in a limo, but Willard somehow brought it all together for quite an entrance to the Ladies in the Lobby sale.

His knowledge was only one small piece of the puzzle making him great. Willard’s genuine desire to serve breeders as they pushed toward their operational goals was another component. Craig Huffhines, former AHA executive vice president, describes Willard as a man with a huge servant’s heart and the ability to tie it to the cattle industry for producers everywhere to benefit. “He was a man of integrity. He was a man of work ethic. He loved the ranching business,” Huffhines says. “He loved his commercial clientele, even though he worked for a purebred operation, his heart was with commercial cowmen.” Huffhines highlights it was this affection for the commercial industry that made Willard so effective in helping develop the Certified Hereford Beef ® program. He was especially skilled at not only creating marketing relationships with cattle feeders for this purpose but also fostering a more personal relationship with every operation he encountered. This aptitude allowed Willard to work exceptionally well as a middleman between commercial cattlemen and seedstock producers. Because of his expertise and trustworthiness, he could encourage seedstock guys to produce what the commercial cattlemen needed. On the flipside, he was able to share data with commercial producers to show them how Hereford cattle fit their operational goals on the carcass side. Huffhines recalls from 1995 to 2008, Willard was a driving force in procuring a large chunk of the several million cattle in the Certified Hereford Beef program. It goes without saying Willard was a major player in creating a marketplace where people competed for Hereford genetics, and his actions added enormous value to the cattle. “It put a premium on Hereford cattle,” Huffhines notes. “It drove demand for Hereford bulls, so it really helped create an economic engine, particularly out west where these big ranches are, for Hereford bulls. He was very instrumental in the success of the Hereford breed.” His influence spanned beyond these contributions alone. In fact, he was heavily involved in leading the development of the Western Nugget Show and Sale, Reno, Nev. He provided so much guidance that the show awards one outstanding junior Hereford breeder the “Willard Wolf Award” each year. In addition, Willard’s resume boasts his being a former president of the Spokane County Cattlemen, a committee member with the Washington Cattlemen’s Association, a member of the Cattle Producers of Washington and a Hereford.org

According to his co-workers and peers, Willard had the credibility to communicate breed improvement ideas to further programs like Certified Hereford Beef because he had his “fingers on the pulse” of the industry, as Craig Huffhines describes.

board member of the Spokane Junior Livestock Show. His hard work and talent were recognized with inductions into the AHA Hall of Merit in 2005 and the National Livestock Marketeers Hall of Fame in 2007. While Willard put in for retirement in 2001, he never really left the cattle industry. Up until earlier this year, he was still filling orders for the Certified Hereford Beef program and Crossroads Cattle Co. With heavy hearts, Willard’s family and friends said goodbye for the final time on March 13, 2019. After a valiant battle with cancer, Willard passed away at age 78, leaving behind his wife Patty, son Bart, and daughters Wende and Wendy.

The reminiscing Willard was a jack-of-all-trades and a master of many — an optimist, a marketer, a loving husband, a loyal friend and a master communicator to those in every aspect of the cattle business from ranchers to grocery store shoppers. When he was not attending a cattle sale, he could be found calf roping, playing golf or cheering on his beloved Gonzaga Bulldogs and OSU Cowboys to victory. To his friends’ chagrin, he enjoyed exchanging text messages or calls about a big game where their alma maters would face off. A Kansas State Wildcat, Dietz, relished texting Willard back and forth during the football and basketball seasons. “We’d get on a ballgame, and it would be like seeing each other back in time during the game,” Dietz remembers. “He might continued on page 84...

text me, ‘Lousy call. That wasn’t a foul.’ Those were always against Gonzaga, of course.” Booker says another thing Willard is known for is being a water witcher. With two willow-tree branches in his hands, he found water on many places — including Booker’s. While Booker had a run of bad luck trying to witch the well himself, he admits Willard simply had the natural ability. Willard experienced this natural ability, or luck, in his career, as well. Booker recalls one such day when Willard managed to unexpectedly sell a load of heifers to a stranger. They were out to visit with a man who had a fairly common name, and Willard misplaced the phone number. After calling information, they were able to reach who they thought was the guy they were hoping to visit. Willard introduced himself over the phone and soon discovered he had called the wrong number. Even so, when the man heard Willard was selling heifers, this guy told him, ‘Hey, I am looking for some heifers, too!’ Sure enough, Willard ended up getting this complete stranger set up with the cattle

he needed. “He was good, but he also had some luck,” Booker adds with a grin. There is no shortage of stories to share from Willard’s time on the road. However, one thing many of the stories have in common is the lasting influence those times made in people’s lives. “He’s a dear friend, confidant and ever encouraging of people in business,” Huffhines shares. “When you’re in the business world, people gravitate to that kind of a person. As a young man, that’s the kind of influence he had on me. “He was really instrumental in my early career in putting a fledging startup beef company together,” Huffhines continues. “He was on the ground floor of that process and really understood the supply chain part of it, and we spent a lot of time together. What I learned from Willard was how to talk to a cow-calf man because he treated them all with respect. I mean, he treated them like family.” Colyer adds, “It didn’t matter if breeders had five head or 500 head, he went and visited them and learned about their cattle, learned about their operation and then, ultimately, earned their trust.” Kendall shares a similar story of benefitting from Willard’s trustworthiness and encouragement. As the years of their friendship progressed, Willard saw promise in Kendall’s ability to organize sales. After much encouragement, Kendall finally gave in to Willard’s ideas of him becoming a sale manager. “He finally told me, ‘You know, you can do it, and I am going to show you how to do some of this stuff. I will show you how to prep these sale catalogs and get this stuff together,’” Kendall reflects. “I got started and one of the very first sales I did was the Nugget sale in Reno, and he was instrumental in getting me in there. He had confidence in me, and he is just one of those guys that can see what people are after and then get the most out of them.” Kendall and Willard’s friendship extended well beyond the sale barn. On many a weekend, the dynamic duo could be found at the lake or on the golf course. But perhaps one of Kendall’s fondest Willard memories occurred just days before his friend’s passing. When Willard fell ill, Kendall called almost every day and made sure to tell Willard how much he cared for him — and Willard expressed his sentiment just the same. While sad, the exchange is perhaps one of Kendall’s most memorable moments in their friendship. “We appreciated each other’s knowledge and friendship until the end,” Kendall says.

The legacy When he was not on the road, Willard always made a point to spend valuable time with his family. Pictured (l to r) are: Claire Wilber, Wende Wilber, Wendy Porter, Ian Wilber, Patty Wolf, Willard Wolf and Lance Wilber.

While Willard’s life on Earth has come to a close, his friends are sure his legacy will live on beyond their years. Labeled one of the “great” breed field Hereford.org


representatives in his biography for the Hereford Hall of Merit award, he will not soon be forgotten among those close to the cattle industry. “He was the ultimate fieldman,” Colyer reflects. “There are different people that were competitors and very good field men in their own right, but I would say they tipped their hats to Willard. He was an ultimate professional, not just because of the purebred side, but he got it. He understood what the industry was, and it wasn’t just the purebred breeders. He involved the commercial men and on through to help with the Certified Hereford Beef program for the end product.” Likewise, his coworkers note his impressive ability to combine a humble servant’s heart with confidence, knowledge and an unmatched tenacity for the business. “The legacy of Willard Wolf will not be forgotten,” Dietz says. “Some people may be popular, but in a couple of years they are forgotten. That will not happen with Willard. He made his mark on the people and the industry in the Northwest. Working for an association, you are always subject to criticism, but there were fewer

His positive attitude and resiliency truly made a difference in the lives of those around him. “Loyalty to the business and to the people he serves is his legacy,” Huffhines says. “He was a constant professional, and he changed the industry for Hereford when it was really difficult times. He was a catalyst of change that brought back a resurgence of the Hereford breed.” The Hereford industry is fortunate to have had Willard on its team. Noted as one-in-a-million, men of his caliber and class do not come along often. From his personal life to his professional career, he maintained an attitude anyone would be proud to have in a friend or breed representative. “What was it about Willard Wolf that made him so great? It is that people trusted him. They trusted him full bank,” Booker says. “He did so much for people. He’d buy their bulls, select their replacements, bought their calves and he would What was it about Willard even go help work the cattle if he had time.” From where Kendall stands, people trusted Wolf that made him so Willard because he always gave the best advice and truly cared about the people he helped — and great?

Hereford Drive

Drew, Ray, David and Lawrence Duncan are willing and able to pursue a legacy of producing top-notch Hereford cattle.

Some Things Never Go Out of Style Able Acres, Wingate, Ind., has been a leader in the Hereford industry for decades — all while maintaining a strong foundation of integrity. by Christy Couch Lee

H

e can drive throughout the countryside and point out each farm to which he has delivered his Hereford genetics in his nearly 84 years on Earth. But one thing you will not find him doing? Bragging about any of his vast successes. No, Lawrence Duncan, Wingate, Ind., is about as humble as they come. But take a look at the many national championship banners and photos tied to his Able Acres, and it is easy to see he has been a pioneer in the Hereford breed. He has seen many changes through the years, and he and his family have continually been innovative in their approach — all while maintaining a focus on quality and integrity. Yes, while some things change, some things definitely remain the same.

Deep roots Born in 1935, Lawrence was raised on the family farm in Montgomery County, Ind., where

92

| July 2019

his parents raised registered Duroc hogs and draft horses. “I have deep roots here and have only moved five miles in my entire life,” he says. At 10 years old, Lawrence began showing Hereford heifers and steers in 4-H at the county and state fairs. After graduating from high school in 1954, he attended Purdue University, majoring in animal husbandry. During his senior year, he married Petzi — they honeymooned at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Following graduation from Purdue, the newlyweds moved into his parents’ house and began farming. “In 1958, we held a sale to buy a place to live,” he recalls. “The high seller went for $1,200. Times change.” Lawrence’s dad, Harvey, primarily organized and planned the first sale. “There was a local radio station with a daily farm program, and the broadcaster came out to the Hereford.org


farm and interviewed us and ran a daily ad for the sale,” Lawrence recalls. “There were a lot of small farms back in our area then, nearly all of them with livestock, so there were more potential customers and the local community could support a sale. “Times have certainly changed,” he reiterates. “From the first sales, the organization was the most difficult part — particularly being able to organize help and all of the cattle. What we learned was that it is necessary to improve the handling equipment and facilities to make it all work, and even after 46 sales, we are still learning and improving.” Forty-six annual production sales later, the Duncans have since marketed 2,369 cows, heifers, bred heifers and bulls as well as 582 steers. “We didn’t start with much — 120 acres of corn and beans,” Lawrence says. “I started with a few Herefords at my dad’s place, and it has evolved one calf at a time.” Lawrence and Petzi moved to the current home farm of Able Acres in 1962 and planted roots for the next generations to grow. The name “Able Acres” was a fit for a couple of reasons. “My dad always said, if you’re able to farm, you should pursue it,” Lawrence says. “But also, while we were waiting in line for stalls, it occurred to my dad, Harvey, that everything was done alphabetically. If our name started with an ‘A,’ it would be listed first. ‘Able Acres’ fit both of these items, so our prefix was ‘AA’ from then on.” Today, Able Acres consists of 140 to 150 cows, along with 2,200 acres of row crops and hay. Not only has the farm expanded — so has the Duncan family. Through the years, Lawrence and Petzi welcomed five children: four sons, Lary, Gary, David and Andy, and one daughter, Caril. All five children own Hereford cattle and take pride in their involvement in the industry to this day. “All exhibited as juniors at a national show, and all were 10-year 4-H members,” Lawrence says. “It

My dad always said, if you’re able to farm, you should pursue it. — Lawrence Duncan would be difficult to walk away from something that is what you have known your whole life, since the oldest child was 14 for the first annual sale and the youngest was 3. “It has kept our family connected,” he continues. “We know that we will all be together on the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year, and even if one can’t be here, which is rare, they are watching and tracking online. It isn’t unusual for one to drop what they are doing to come take a picture for an ad, or to travel 500 miles to prepare meals for the sale, even though they have other careers away from the farm.” As well, Petzi operated a preschool for 25 years in the building where the meal and clerking are done. “It took the whole family to get everything cleaned and put back in its place before school began just 36 hours after a sale ended,” daughterin-law Jill says. “I don’t know how else to put it other than it is just what we do.” As well, some members of the family have become involved in the Boer goat industry with son Lary serving as the CEO of the American Boer Goat Association. And the Duncan family’s tradition in the livestock industry has carried through to the fourth generation of nine grandchildren — all of whom have been active with Herefords, hogs and Boer goats. The Duncans have definitely given back to the industry which has treated them well. Lawrence and son Gary have each served terms as the Indiana continued on page 94...

...Some Things Never Go Out of Style continued from page 94

These lifelong friends and the memories you make are pretty sacred things in life. — David Duncan Hereford Association president. David’s wife, Jill, is the current association secretary/treasurer, and David is a director. In addition, grandchildren Ray and Hattie both serve on the Indiana Junior Hereford Association board of directors. Lawrence and Petzi reached their 60th anniversary milestone before her passing in February 2018.

Strong genetics Lawrence credits his longevity in the Hereford industry to two things: quality genetics and quality relationships. D Mixer Domino 91, purchased from Dettke Farms, Marysville, Kan., in the 1970s, sired many Able Acres champions through the years. “He sired great females, including AA Perf Mixerette 8 — the 1969 Champion Hereford Heifer at the Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky state fairs,” Lawrence says. Many sons, daughters, grandsons and granddaughters by D Mixer Domino 91 were named champion at numerous county and state fairs through the years. In addition, AA Blue Knight was a many-time champion and national class winner in the ’80s. He went on to sire many successful progeny, including AA AGF Bo Diddly, the grand champion Hereford bull at the 1991 Indiana and Kentucky state fairs. And their herd sire, AA PRF Wideload — 2004 North American International Livestock Expo Reserve Grand Champion Hereford Bull — was the first Able Acres sire to earn the American Hereford Association (AHA) Golden Bull award. To date, the Duncans have achieved this honor seven times. Wideload has also sired numerous champions across the nation, including the 2007 national champion bull, Reload. But above all of the awards, the Duncans say their friendships and relationships within the industry are their greatest accomplishments. Lawrence finds great reward in customers calling to purchase Able Acres genetics sight unseen. “To know they trust me — they just ask me to choose something and deliver it — that means a lot,” he says.

Additionally, the return customers bring great satisfaction, David says. “We have customers who first began buying their 4-H calves from us, and now they’re buying for their kids and grandkids,” he says. “It’s really humbling to be raising these cattle for many years, and these people still come back.” But it is not just the customers — it is the customers who become lifelong friends. “These lifelong friends and the memories you make are pretty sacred things in life,” David says. One such customer-turned-friend is Mark Sturdy, Rochester, Ill. He and his family run Sturdy Hereford Outlet, and he also is the practicing veterinarian with Rochester Veterinary Clinic. Sturdy began attending Able Acres’ production sales in the late ’70s, when he made his first purchase with his dad. On average, he has purchased one or two heifers each year from the Duncans and currently owns interest in several cows with the family. They have partnered on many bulls through the years, too. As Sturdy describes, the Duncans do not only have a reputation for integrity in the industry, but they are also good people, period. “They have treated me fairly and do an exceptional job running their cow herd,” Sturdy says. “But even more, they’re honest and have integrity. They’re good partners and are good people to work with. Lawrence has made an impact on many herds, as well as many people. I can’t think of anyone who’s had a bad thing to say about him. And that’s saying something. “Simply put, they’re a good American family that I’m proud to know,” he adds.

Innovation at work The Duncans have continually involved new technologies through the years, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET). Jack Ward, AHA executive vice president, says the Duncan family has been an innovator in the Hereford breed. “Able Acres utilizes all tools available to provide reliable, honest and quality genetics that have been sold to buyers throughout the United States,” he says. “In the fall of 2018, Able Acres hosted its 46th annual production sale which featured the strongest and freshest genetics the Hereford breed has to offer. Lawrence and his family were early adopters in collecting performance data and have been dedicated supporters of the AHA’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records [TPR™] program. In addition, Able Acres has been Hereford.org


performance testing bulls through the Indiana Bull Evaluation Program (IBEP) for many years.” Lawrence says the IBEP has provided valuable data and has helped to continually improve their operation through the years. “I served on the IBEP board of directors for many years,” he says. “We have remained supporters of this program for several reasons. It is a great way to market our bulls to not only Hereford breeders, but also to commercial breeders. It gives us the opportunity to reach some customers we would never cross paths with. Another advantage is the data that is collected at the IBEP. It provides information we need to be concerned about to improve not only our herd, but the breed and beef industry, as well.” Jill says the success of the sales can be attributed to great neighbors lending a hand at sale time. “There is no way to have 46 sales without the people we have, who we can depend on,” she says. In addition, she says Able Acres’ butcherbeef program has also enhanced the operation’s success. “We have several butcher beef customers and try to sell as much fed-out steers as possible, so that we can optimize the price we receive for our fed cattle,” she says. Lawrence says spending a lifetime in the Hereford industry has allowed him to witness many changes. “We’ve gone through the shortest calf winning the show to the tallest,” he says. “I remember the first calf we had to reach 1,000 pounds at one year — that was an accomplishment then. But it wouldn’t stand any competition now. We thought we really had done something with that one, at that time.” However, one constant at Able Acres is disposition. “Disposition is important,” Lawrence says. “All females are broke to tie. If they don’t pass that test, they’re gone.” David says the reasoning is simple: “If you sell a wild one to someone, they won’t come back.”

Herefords in the future Lawrence believes the future of the Hereford breed, as a whole, is dependent on the breed remaining relevant. “And, we need to continue to earn the commercial breeder’s respect,” he says. Jill agrees. “We must stay relevant in the feedlots’ eyes, as well as the cow-calf operations’ eyes,” she says. “Additionally, with the land-use changes here in the eastern part of the country, there isn’t as much pasture. So we must continue to find new customers.” As for advice for someone just beginning in the Hereford industry? Lawrence has one word: patience. Hereford.org

For Lawrence, the opportunities to improve each calf crop and the promise of the future have kept him in the business for decades.

“It takes a long time to build a customer base,” he says. “One person tells another, and that’s our best advertisement.” Additionally, Lawrence says, you must treat others with respect. “You have to treat others the way you want to be treated,” he says. David agrees. “He’s right,” he says. “Everyone will talk, and a bad one causes more trouble than a good one causes good.” These principles have set Able Acres on the path for success into the next generation and beyond. Lawrence says the promise of the future has kept him involved in the industry. “There’s something about looking forward to the next year’s calf crop, hoping it will be better than the one you’ve just had,” he says. And, he notes, he is optimistic about the future of Able Acres. He believes the fourth generation of Duncans hold great promise. “I have several grandchildren — from ages 29 to 11 — who could come back after college and manage the operation,” he says. As for Lawrence? He hopes to be remembered for building a foundation for the future. David’s 15-year-old son, Ray, says his grandpa is succeeding. “He’s definitely done a great job of building that foundation,” Ray says. “He’s taught me that it’s all about how you treat people, and you only get back what you give.” Andy’s 15-year-old son, Drew, agrees. Grandpa Lawrence is instilling values that will last a lifetime. “He has taught me that you’re always burning daylight,” Drew says. “He’s also taught me not to give up, and to work hard.” Yes, Lawrence Duncan has seen many changes, and he’s bound to see more in the years to come. But a few things that will never change? Integrity. Honesty. Innovation. Some things will change. But some things will always remain the same. July 2019 |

Primetime is the total package. He has exceptional phenotype with great eye appeal. He has a stout EPD profile across the board to go with his exceptional pedigree on both the maternal and paternal side. Primetime’s maternal gradam, 111X was the $12,500 lead off female in the record breaking Star Lake dispersal sale, going to CES Polled Hereford of Georgia. A granddaughter of both Investor Gal 129R and Rockin Erica 38F, Simply Stunning transmits combined power, eye-appeal and maternal strength into her offspring. R91 exudes that same genetic advancement right out of the gate with Primetime being her first natural calf. In short, Primetime has the numbers and the pedigree to go with is flashy good looks. We here at Barnes Herefords are very excited about his future.

Predestined for Progress

A Georgia couple honors their family’s past while focusing on the future. by Katrina Huffstutler

W

hen Kyle Gillooly first moved to Georgia from Indiana, he had a nontraditional roommate — the grandfather of his then fiancé, Jennifer Oglesby, well-known cattleman Charles Smith. A twentysomething and a widower 40 years his senior sharing a home may sound like the plot of a great sitcom, but for Kyle it was a crash course in raising cattle on a bigger scale and in a different environment than he was used to. “A few months before I moved down here, Mr. Charles’ wife, Diane, had passed away from pancreatic cancer,” Kyle explains. “She had really taken care of him, did so much for him, and all

of a sudden, his life changed pretty rapidly. Mr. Charles had given Jennifer and me a home to remodel and live in once we were married, but it wasn’t going to be ready for a few months. So, we decided to live together. It worked out great because he had some companionship and I benefited from his wisdom and experience.” At the time, Charles Smith and family were running about 2,000 head of cattle, a mix of Herefords, Angus and commercial. It was quite the leap from the 75-head herd Kyle had back home. “I had a learning curve that year unlike most,” Kyle says.

Above: Kyle and Jennifer Gillooly, along with their children, Grant and Diana Kate, carry on Charles E. Smith’s legacy on the family’s Wadley, Ga., cow-calf operation.

Love was in the air (and barns) In the summer of 1999, Kyle, then 20, met Jennifer, then 16, at the Junior National Hereford Expo. The two immediately became close friends, despite only seeing each other once or twice a year. Kyle was interested in more, but felt, due to their age difference, that should wait. “I always say I didn’t know what the rules were for dating somebody in Georgia, but I knew 16 probably didn’t need to come into discussion,” he says with a laugh. By late 2004, though, Kyle was a recent graduate of Purdue University and ready to make a move. That is when he had a big idea. “I’ve never been a marketing genius,” Kyle says. “But the best marketing I ever did was in December of 2004.” He was working on his family’s operation and identified a couple of exceptional show heifers. He knew they needed to go to someone deserving. Jennifer, who at this point was in her last year of eligibility, came to mind. “I called and asked her if she needed another show heifer for her last junior nationals,” Kyle says. “She said, ‘I might be in the market. What do you have?’ So, I told her, ‘I could tell you about them on the phone but I think I’m just going to fly you to Indiana to see them in person.’” As soon as he said it, he could not believe those words had come out of his mouth. “It wasn’t like me at all,” he says. “I wasn’t forward with women at all.” But she agreed. She flew to Indiana over New Year’s weekend and the rest is history. “She took one of the heifers, but I got the better end of the deal,” Kyle says. “I got my wife.”

A balancing act Charles Smith, almost 81, still oversees all the cattle on the joint operation he and brother Wynder started in the 1950s — CES Polled Herefords and Smith Angus Farm. Kyle and Jennifer run Predestined Cattle Co., originally comprised of Kyle’s best cows he brought from Indiana and Jennifer’s former show cattle. The three operations are all housed on the same farm and live by the mission “partners in progress.” But progress does not come at the expense of what is really important. “I always tell people we don’t chase extremes,” Kyle says. “Both Jennifer and I grew up showing cattle and we have Hereford.org

Cows and cotton coexist on the farm started by brothers Charles and Wynder Smith in the 1950s. Charles’ son, Charles Jr., oversees the 4,000 acres of row crops, which is primarily planted in cotton, corn and peanuts.

strong, positive feelings toward the show industry. But we don’t run a show barn.” He says he has had an appreciation for cattle that look good for as long as he could walk, something he credits to his father, Jim, who he calls one of the greatest cattle judges he has ever known. Kyle himself judged for Purdue and has judged shows all over the U.S. Raising show cattle is a The three operations project and lifestyle he loves, just not one he breeds specifically are all housed on for. But he is not going too the same farm and far the other way, either. “Numbers are important live by the mission to us — the genetics, the EPDs “partners in progress.” [expected progeny differences] — but we don’t chase the highest figures,” Kyle says. “Instead, we look for balance. I want cattle that raise a big healthy calf and look good doing it.” He says, ultimately, breeding cattle is all about producing females that can go do everything everybody wants them to do. continued on page 104...

...Predestined for Progress continued from page 103

While still too soon to tell if Kyle and Jennifer’s children will carry on the tradition, the future looks bright. Grant is not in love with the show ring, but he does love working cattle with his dad. Diana Kate, pictured, is already asking for a show heifer. After she won the school’s beauty pageant, Kyle jokes he became more motivated to find her one. “I am not a pageant dad,” he quips.

“That’s often hard,” Kyle says. “It’s so easy to get caught up in either trying to produce show cattle or raising cattle with the best carcass traits and you just can’t do both. It’s all about balance.” He says he wants his cows to be right in the middle of the spectrum, so he can breed a cow to a show bull and produce a show heifer or he can breed her to the highest marbling bull in the breed and produce that kind of calf, too. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s easier to improve cattle than to change cattle,” Kyle says. “If you need more muscle, more femininity, more volume and capacity, you’re probably starting out with something fairly decent and you can improve those traits. But if you’re trying to change feet and change udders, you’re probably starting out with something that’s probably pretty bad and you’re going to have a hard time changing those qualities. We get rid of cattle that have those issues — because it’s a whole lot easier to improve one than it is to change one.”

‘It’s a privilege’ While Jennifer has a job off the farm as a labor and delivery nurse in Augusta, Ga., the cattle — and the people in the industry she grew up in — really have her heart. “I tell people all the time Kyle has a dream job and I have a real job, to provide the insurance and stability,” Jennifer says. “But my heart is always here. And when I’m not at work, I’m on the farm.” No doubt, at least during calving season, the couple’s jobs have parallels. “He delivers baby cows and I deliver real babies,” she says with a laugh. “Yeah, the only difference is she is on call 24/7 one day every few weeks, and then she’s working a regular schedule. I’m on call every day,” Kyle quips. While the job may have long hours, they would not trade it for the world.

“Herefords are what we grew up with and we love them,” she says. “But the reason we keep doing this, it’s the people.” She says her grandfather occasionally asks her, “Do you think your kids will be interested in this one day?” While it is too soon to tell — Grant is 9 and Diane Kate is 6 — Jennifer hopes they will and feels privileged to be able to offer them that option, thanks to their great-grandfather’s legacy. “We know that it is very hard to be our age and have as many cattle as we run and do as much as we do without having a family that started it. We know it’s very hard just to get into it at this stage and it’s hard to borrow that much money and get in that much financial stress and have to try to figure out how to pay for it all. We know we’re very fortunate and privileged and honored. And this cattle operation…it’s absolutely our life.”

Building better baldies While there is no doubt Kyle and Jennifer love the purebred business, they have also found a niche selling baldies, something he considers one of the Hereford breed’s greatest assets. His customers agree. Three years ago, Kyle decided to sell 21 true F1 baldies in their annual Partners in Progress sale, an event that previously only included registered females. The baldies averaged $3,030. The next two years, the sets averaged $2,500 and $1,750, respectively, following market trends. One buyer’s words stick out more than any selling price, though. “I’ll never forget it,” Kyle says. “A guy who bought 20 F1 heifers told me, ‘I didn’t buy black baldies today. I bought a program.’ What he was emphasizing was he was buying cattle that he knew the Herefords came from here, the Angus came from here. This was our program he was buying into; he wasn’t just going around trying to grab up commercial heifers. He was trying to find heifers that were uniform and were backed by generations of proven cattle.”

The bottom line Whether a customer buys a registered female or a baldy in the annual sale or a bull private treaty, the Gilloolys want each buyer to be satisfied. “If you leave here with our cattle, we want you to be satisfied and we want those cattle to work well for you,” Jennifer says. “And we think they will. Because what you see is what you get here. We don’t have a lot of fluff and do a lot of deals. That’s how I was raised and how we will carry on the legacy, too. We believe in honesty. And we absolutely want the cattle that we sell to work well for people. And if they don’t, we want to make that right. We want our customers to be satisfied and that’s the bottom line.” Hereford.org

Celebrating 40 Years of Performance Line One Breeding! The JOHANSEN HEREFORD program began in 1979 with an emphasis on PERFORMANCE and PREDICTIBILITY. Since the beginning, the base herd has been Line One bred. It has been proven over time that these genetics are superior for our environment. Our HIGH MOUNTAIN and DESERT DOMINOS thrive in our harsh environment. The cattle run on the San Rafael Desert in the winter and the Manti La Sal National Forest (up to el. 10,000 feet) in the summer. Our goal is to continue to improve and strive to create the perfect female. This rigorous culling program has resulted in a very functional cowherd of 140 mother cows that focuses on soundness, fertility, longevity, udder quality, easy fleshing, overall phenotype, and the ability to thrive at high altitude.

confident chant, the tap of a gavel and the final word — “sold!” — transferring ownership and keeping the industry moving forward. The auctioneers of the Hereford industry have seen many changes through the decades, and they have played an integral role in the advancement of the breed. Take a few minutes to chat with them, and they are sure to tell you “as much as things change, some things stay the same.”

Eddie Sims

I had 150 sales a year. She was home raising the kids and caring for the cattle. If it hadn’t been for my sweet wife, we wouldn’t have survived.

Elgin, Okla.

Began as auctioneer and sale manager in 1968. Retired after 50 years in 2018.

Q A

How do you envision the future of the breed?

If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. The Hereford breed is in a good position, with new people getting into the business. Our breeding cattle are good and efficient, and the black baldy is the best F1 that exists today. We can still work on udders and longevity in mother cows, and producing enough bulls for the market. But I would like to see us all working to help breeders promote and sell their cattle, rather than continually adding data. A friend was recently joking that we would probably need to print two or three catalogs just to get all of the data printed for a sale. We have confused our customers with all of this data. I like the KIS method — Keep It Simple.

Q A

What is your favorite part of being an auctioneer? (What gets you out of bed in the morning, so to speak.)

The greatest thing about this business? Every sale day is a different day. Different people. Different cattle. Different market. You can’t predict what will happen today, based on yesterday’s sale. Whether you’re in North Dakota or Texas, you get to work with what’s there. The mistake a lot of young auctioneers make is to think they know what will happen before a sale begins. The people in the seats will tell you. You just have to be smart enough to watch them tell you what they want to buy, and the auctioneer has to be good enough to have control of it.

Q A

What is one of your favorite memories as an auctioneer?

I have lots of great memories, but a few stand out. Selling Randy Owens’ sales for 35-plus years. Selling Franklin Delano Roosevelt Junior’s sale, and sitting in the former U.S. President’s desk chair. Working with Star Lake Cattle Ranch and Montie Soules from their first sale through their dispersal — they’re great people and were a great asset to the business. Selling Express Ranches’ first Hereford sale. They are the largest purebred operation in the world, and now they’re in the Hereford business. That should put a star in our crown. And also, having my wife Ruth by my side. In 1979, I had sales 30 of 31 days in October, and I was on an airplane every night. Several years,

Grew up in Hereford business. Began as an auctioneer in 1978.

Q A

Describe how the nature of Hereford sales has progressed from when you first started as an auctioneer.

The pace of the auction has picked up quite a bit through the years. Sales used to be slow and [it] took several hours to sell a few lots of cattle. Many speeches were made. That has changed over the years, and now it’s more of a rapid pace, which everyone likes better. You can sell a lot more cattle in one day’s time. Sales used to be more of a social event than they are today, too. Lots of people would come in the day before, and they’d socialize and attend the sale party the night before. Some operations still do this. But most are now more of a oneday event. Buyers arrive that morning and look at the cattle. And then the auction begins.

Q A

How do you envision the future of the breed?

I see some real changes that will need to be made in the beef industry, as a whole. The industry will need to understand what the consumer wants, and in turn, the commercial industry will need to produce the beef that the consumer wants to buy. As purebred breeders, we will need to produce cattle to fit those needs. If we want growth in the Hereford industry, we must produce genetics that work for those commercial programs.

Q A

What is one of your favorite memories as an auctioneer?

I can remember my first sale that I sold by myself. At the time, I was working for National Cattle Services. Eddie Sims got snowed in and couldn’t get out of Nebraska, and he had a sale in Missouri. At the last minute, he called and said I was going to have to do it, because he couldn’t get there. I told the owner, “Eddie won’t be here, and I’m going to have to sell your sale.” He said, “I’m paying for a high-priced auctioneer.” My response? “Yes, sir. But I’m all you’ve got.” The sale averaged $650, which was a good sale in the late ’70s. So, it worked out fine.

Q A

Describe how the nature of Hereford sales has progressed from when you first started as an auctioneer. In the past, cattle were selected based on appearance and pedigree. Now, breeders have moved to selecting strongly based on EPDs [expected progeny differences], beyond quality and function. Breeders need to select based on a balance of all traits — quality, function and EPDs.

What is your favorite part of being an auctioneer? (What gets you out of bed in the morning, so to speak.)

The adrenaline it creates in me. I love working together with a sale team to achieve the best possible results for the seller. I have often said that a sale is a natural high for me. I’ve never used drugs, but if people on drugs are higher than I am on that auction block, then it must be some pretty good stuff. Sometimes a seller expects the sale team to make chicken salad out of chicken crap. And occasionally, we can do it.

Q A

What is one of your favorite memories as an auctioneer?

In 1979, I was helping to manage a sale for WhipO-Will Farm in North Carolina. My mentor and retired auctioneer, A.W. “Ham” Hamilton, knew he couldn’t sell the entire sale. He told me I could sell the last two. I knew it was attitude time, so I sat down and sold the last two. There was a Canadian in the crowd who liked the way I handled that situation, and he employed me 40 years ago. I have been working all across Canada for multiple breeders for 40 years since. Canada has been a huge part of my livelihood, and I cherish the friends I have made there and the opportunities they have all given me. Attitude in life is 90 percent.

Describe how the nature of Hereford sales has progressed from when you first started as an auctioneer. It’s phenomenal how much the performance records and the knowledge of these cattle has changed. We’ve gone from men telling you they’ve had nothing but a good one to now having records to prove it.

What is your favorite part of being an auctioneer? (What gets you out of bed in the morning, so to speak.) It’s exciting. Every time that gate comes open, it’s a brand-new challenge. I love going to a sale and not hardly knowing anyone there. If I know 80 percent of the crowd, I know where we are going. But when I have new faces, the challenge is greater, and I love it.

What makes the Hereford breed and its breeders unique? There are good beef cattle in every breed out there, and you can find a use for every one of them. But the people producing Hereford cattle truly make this industry stand apart. We have some really great Hereford breeders who have stood the test of time and have been in the business for years — their families go way back. Our people have the reputation for being dedicated and doing a great job producing great cattle. That’s what makes the Hereford breed stand out. Our breeders will propel Hereford cattle into the future.

Joe Goggins Billings, Mont.

Began auctioneering with his dad, a respected purebred auctioneer, in 1982. Now owns three livestock auction markets and a video marketing business.

Q A

How do you envision the future of the breed? I think the future of the Hereford breed is bright. There is a strong demand for those Hereford commercial females in the commercial sector — and that’s how a breed survives.

With the national cow herd turning black, there’s so much room for the Hereford bull, too. It’s such a great cross on a black cow.

Q A

What is your favorite part of being an auctioneer? (What gets you out of bed in the morning, so to speak.) I like to compete, and I like people. Being in the auction business gives me the best of both worlds. Ranch people are my kind of people. And when you think of the great stud horses and racehorses and cattle — competition creates demand. And there’s no better way to create demand than through the auction.

Q A

From a people standpoint, Hereford breeders are survivors. There have been some challenges with the breed through the years, but these people have persevered and have a love for these cattle. They knew they needed to make some changes with these cattle, and they’ve done it. They’re good salt-of-the-earth people, and you know what you’re getting when you deal with a Hereford breeder. What they tell you is spot on from a business standpoint. You know what you’re going to get.

Eddie Burks Park City, Ky.

What makes the Hereford breed and its breeders unique?

You can cross a Hereford on a black cow, regardless of breed, and add disposition and hardiness. Many breeders want these two traits, and they’re extremely important to the industry. For those with crossbreeding programs, heterosis and performance are key. And that’s where you gain when you put a Hereford bull on a cow herd. Hereford cattle work on the range but also on the feedlot. They can handle some cold weather and handle adversity. That’s probably why the breed is hanging on and is as strong as it is today.

C.D. “Butch” Booker Colfax, Wash.

Raised in family auction business. Two-time International Auctioneer Champion.

Q A

What is one of your favorite memories as an auctioneer? Definitely the day we sold C Miles McKee 2103 ET for Colyer Herefords and Angus, setting a world record at $600,000. The name behind the bull has real history for Kansas State University alumni, and it was incredible to see a family who has worked so hard have that accomplishment.

Q A

What makes the Hereford breed and its breeders unique? The Hereford breed is unique in its ability to adapt to so many different environments. There’s an old saying that many ranches in the west were paid for by Hereford cattle, and that’s definitely a true statement. I have seen these cattle be able to perform just as well in arid environments as they can in lush, irrigated grass. The ability of these cattle to adapt is unique.

Hereford.org

Raised in Hereford industry. Graduated from Missouri Auction School in 1991.

Q A

Describe how the nature of Hereford sales has progressed from when you first started as an auctioneer. During my career, the use of online bidding and the role of the internet and cell phones has truly changed the auction. When I started, you gave a bid to someone on the sale staff, letting him know what you were willing to pay. That was your only option. Now, you can have anyone on a cell phone in a split second.

Q A

How do you envision the future of the breed? The breed is very strong. We have survived the fad of the exotics, and we still are one of the largest registries in the country. That’s a testament to the Hereford cow or Hereford-crossbred cow having a place in the industry. The Hereford cow has a bright future, and the breed is diverse enough to stand competition from coast to coast. We also have had good leadership that has positioned us to be a major part of the beef industry.

Q A

What is one of your favorite memories as an auctioneer? It’s hard to beat having the opportunity to sell the “Mile High Night” National Hereford Sale twice. That crowd, that enthusiasm, climbing up onto that block and looking out at all those people — that will be one of my greatest memories in my auction career. It’s quite exhilarating and truly an honor to be asked to do it, first off. Then look at its success. The stage is set, and it’s pretty inspiring.

Sights on Success

Tegtmeier Polled Herefords, Burchard, Neb., balances innovation and tradition to achieve consistency. by Austin Black

R

uss Tegtmeier has seen it all. Every size of cattle and every form of marketing. His hard work, dedication and passion for Hereford cattle has allowed his breeding program to continue to evolve in an ever-changing beef industry. Tegtmeier Polled Herefords, Burchard, Neb., knows the key to success is providing proven genetics to commercial cattlemen. It all started in the late 1940s with Russ’ dad, Clarence. Farmers and ranchers dominated the countryside, and Clarence’s neighbors were no exception. Headquartered in southeast Nebraska,

122

| July 2019

the Tegtmeiers were surrounded by cattle producers. “There was a farm on every quarter section and they all ran 25-50 cows,” Russ says. There were some Herefords in the area, but most farms raised Angus or Shorthorn. Clarence saw an opportunity to differentiate his program, and he jumped on it. By raising registered Herefords, he could provide a crossbreeding option, and the docility of the breed was an added benefit. His herd started with cows carrying Lamplighter and Beau Rollo bloodlines. With a strong foundation, it only took a few years for Hereford.org


Clarence to amass enough good cows to start selling bulls. His market started small, with most buyers coming from a 50-mile radius. But his honest dealings and confidence in the performance of his cattle allowed Clarence to build up a loyal customer base. Realizing demand Clarence was a visionary for his cattle was growing, who knew furthering Clarence hosted the farm’s Hereford genetics in his area Erick, Oscar and Clarence (l to r) hosted the Tegtmeier’s first production first production sale in 1961. had immense market value for commercial customers. sale in 1961, a tradition Clarence passed onto his son, Russ.

As his closest partner on the cattle

Uncompromising adaptability In the ’70s, more Continental and Exotic cattle entered the region — and industry dynamics changed. “The style of our cattle changed dramatically,” Tegtmeier remembers. “We went from putting as much straw underneath the cattle as possible, to make them look shorter and deeper, to seeing how low you could lay to the ground to make them look as tall as possible in the picture.” As producers looked to add frame to their cattle, the market for Hereford bulls became tough. In response, the Tegtmeiers adjusted their breeding program to meet the demand. “We changed and our cattle got more frame, taller and longer,” he explains. The trend was short lived, though. By the ’90s, commercial producers were calling for moderation in birth weight and frame. The Tegtmeiers knew that to stay relevant in the industry, their program would need to adapt again. “We picked lighter Hereford.org

To have a successful sale, if you can get several half and three-quarter brothers in the sale and they look good, the buyers will bid on more lots. — Russ Tegtmeier

while honoring the legacy his father had created, Tegtmeier went to artificial insemination (AI) school in 1984. “I could see a real need in being able to use a lot of bulls I couldn’t afford to buy,” he says. “To be at the forefront of anything, you have to try to use up-and-coming sires that excel in areas your bulls don’t.” Tegtmeier takes a very strategic approach to AI. “We’ve tried to take a sire group of daughters and breed them to one bull. We got a lot of herd consistency by getting half and three-quarter daughters in the herd,” he explains. The benefits continued in the bulls, too. Consistency is important to the operation’s success, as Tegtmeier’s customer base is mainly commercial cattlemen who are interested in investing in specific genetic lines. “To have a successful sale, if you can get several half and three-quarter brothers in the sale and they look good, the buyers will bid on more lots,” he explains. Having several bulls with similar genetics and phenotypes gives buyers opportunity to compete for each lot. “If [the buyer] likes 10 or 15 bulls and it takes him 10 bulls before he gets one bought, that will set a floor,” Tegtmeier says. “That’s what helps our sale more than anything is to have bulls that look alike.” Tegtmeier’s innovative thinking did not cease with AI school, though. In the early 2000s, he pursued another development at the forefront of the industry and began using embryo transfer (ET) to replicate proven genetics. “We’ve had some individual cows that we felt we should get more progeny out of,” he

says. ET was the quickest way to do that. But unlike most seedstock producers, Tegtmeier runs a very small ET program. “We maybe flush one or two cows each year,” he says. Tegtmeier likes to find young females with newer genetics to replicate, and he tries to flush a different cow each time. “I usually have 10 to 15 cows each year to choose from,” he explains. Tegtmeier knows exactly what he is looking for in a female ET prospect — he only pulls from the top 5 percent of the herd and studies to make sure the cow excels in all production related traits. “I’m looking for a moderate frame cow that doesn’t require a lot of inputs to maintain condition,” he says. “She has to have a good udder, good conformation and structure and a good production record.” To better track production and performance, Tegtmeier records weights and calving intervals. He got his first set of scales in 1985. Running the sale barn, his dad was able to look at a calf and know how big it was. “I was different,” Tegtmeier says. “I needed the proof in front of me. I needed to educate myself on which cows had better performance, and I needed to know how much better they were.” Tegtmeier also participated in the Guide Lines Program, which the American Polled Hereford Association introduced in the ’80s. The detailed records helped improve herd performance through culling and sire selection. “In the mid-’80s, our weaning weights were only

Tank 45P was a game changer for the Tegtmeiers’ genetic base. Out of this noteworthy sire came numerous nationwide champions and a strong base of replacements.

about 550 pounds,” he recalls — and that was with large frame cows. “[Those numbers] told me I was going to have to get a little more performance and milk in our cows to have weaning weights in the 600-650 pound range consistently,” he says. “But the neat thing is now our cattle are a couple frames shorter and our weaning weights are just as good if not better.” Ultimately, Tegtmeier’s dedication to numbers and analytics has paid off in the long run.

Reaping the rewards Over the years, Tegtmeier Polled Herefords earned a reputation in the Hereford breed. Half a century dedicated to the Hereford breed has come with “We have been on nine Nebraska Hereford tours, great reward over the years. the World Hereford Conference Tour, and won the Nebraska Breeder Award from the Nebraska customers right,” he says. “We have sold cattle Hereford Association three times in the last 30 and semen in 34 states, Canada, Argentina, years,” Tegtmeier says.

People were looking for an outcross,” Tegtmeier explains. He bought the bull from Ned and Jan Ward and later sold a semen interest to Topp Herefords. “Ryan Topp did as much as anyone in promoting him,” he adds.

Seedstock Genetics Raised in a Commercial Environment

When we focus on making breeding decisions, our philosophy has always stayed consistent to the cowman. It’s our job to produce highly maternal, functional females that thrive in the toughest conditions. Yet, our pen mate bulls can still stamp cattle with performance, power and that high dollar generating carcass quality that keep them coming back year after year.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

Get Back Up Again There she was. Our 7-year-old daughter, Caroline, on the washrack with her first Hereford heifer, Ellie. Two little buns on the sides of her head, a hot pink dress, washrack boots and three Band-Aids on a knee — covering the latest tragedy of her newfound ability to ride a “big girl” bike with no training wheels. This momma could not have been more filled with pride. Caroline talked about a new big girl bicycle for weeks. One with streamers on the handles, a pouch to carry her treasures and, most importantly, no “little girl” training wheels.

my pride rose not from her being able to ride a bike. It came from knowing our daughter was developing the ability to fall and to get back up again.

Life lessons

Take off the training wheels So, when the Easter Bunny left the bicycle in our yard on Easter morning, she was thrilled. However, there was one slight issue: Caroline had never ridden a bike without training wheels. Before church, her daddy ran alongside

her — him in his robe, her in her nightgown. I know Craig is thankful no photos were taken. After church and lunch, she headed back outside again. It didn’t take long before she asked for us to release the hold on the seat and let her ride on her own. By the end of the day, our little tomboy was whizzing up and down the driveway with a smile like no other. But it didn’t come without some blood, sweat and tears — literally. We lost count of how many times our 11-year-old, Nolan, ran into the house saying Caroline needed us. She would be crying, pointing out a new scratch or bump from a run-in with the ditch. Nolan would grab a plastic baggie filled with ice, and Caroline would treat her “injury.” That plastic baggie apparently held magical powers. Within minutes, Caroline would dry the tears and say she was ready to head back outside to try again. That evening, as she was going through her nighttime routine, she pointed out the scratches. But our little girl, who would normally be inconsolable over the most minor of injuries, was actually proud of all she had accomplished that day. As a mom,

There are times when, I’m sure, we as parents in the show industry would love for our children to only know success, to only hold that purple banner, to only be rewarded for their hard work and to never experience the disappointment and pain of loss. But as adults, we know the greatest life lessons don’t necessarily come from winning. So many life lessons can be learned in those moments of defeat. Our children learn how to hold their heads high, even when they don’t necessarily agree with a judge’s decision. Our children learn to not speak poorly of their competition — because the roles could be reversed on a different day with a different judge. They learn where they could have improved and what they can do next time to be even better. Yes, when they do have their moment in the spotlight, they learn to appreciate that moment even more. Because they know what it’s like to fall — to force themselves to dust off and get back up again. This time, even more determined. They know what it took to have that moment of reward. Of course, we all want to win. I’d be willing to bet most of us are about as competitive as they come. But let’s never forget the rewards of those bumps and bruises along the way and of teaching our children to get back in that seat and to give it all they’ve got. Those skinned-up knees can be their proof they didn’t let a little setback keep them down, and that’s the greatest badge of honor any of us can have.

From the Field New Arrival

Jack Beeson, 90, of Wayne, Neb., passed away May 26, 2019. Jack was born March 17, 1929, on a farm near Hunter, Jack Beeson Okla., the son of Dell and Olive (Neff) Beeson. He attended country school, Hunter grade school and then transferred to Garber High School. Jack showed steers at Oklahoma City and Kansas City and was president of his local FFA chapter. After graduation, he worked for Honey Creek Ranch in Oklahoma and Riffel Polled Herefords in Kansas. On July 12, 1950, he became herdsman for Hervale Farms near Wayne. Jack served two years in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. He came right back to Hervale Farms where he showed cattle in more than 20 states and Canada. On June 19, 1957, Jack married the love of his life, Beverly (Bev) Ann Lunstra. Jack and Bev showed cattle in more than 50 Nebraska state fairs. He was a board member of Wayne County and the Nebraska Farm Bureau. Jack was a deacon and an elder for the First Presbyterian Church in Wayne. He is survived by his wife, Beverly; son, Jock (Brenda); sister, Marilyn (Butch) Hale; numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Kevin and Courtney Ernst proudly welcome their first child, Linley Mae Ernst. Linley was born May Linley Ernst 4, weighing 6 lb. 14½ oz. and measuring 19 inches long. Grandparents are Marshall and Barbara Ernst, Ernst Herefords, Windsor, Colo., and Bernie and Sharon Pisano Loveland, Colo.

In Passing Logan Silha, 68, of Bowman, N.D., passed away March 9. Logan attended Bowman Schools and graduated in 1969. He then attended North Dakota State University, where he majored in animal science and was a member of Farmhouse fraternity, Saddle and Sirloin Club, Alpha Zeta, the livestock and wool judging teams and the rodeo club. Later, he became a member of the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, the American Hereford Association and St. Charles Catholic Church. He was clerk of Grainbelt Township for more than 30 years. On Aug. 21, 1976, he was united in marriage to Diana Busko. Along with his family, Logan loved his polled Hereford cattle and Quarter Horses at Lazy JS Ranch. In addition to watching sports, he enjoyed oil painting and reading. He is survived by his wife, Diana; children, Denver (Roxie) Silha, Tressa (Jason) Dodge, Megan (Brad) Hlebechuk and Nevada (Jessie) Silha; 11 grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

puts it in a petri dish and attempts to grow it in a way that replicates real meat,” says Ryan Quarles, Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner, on the issue. “I don’t know about you, but I would much rather have a steak that is raised in a field than raised in a stainless-steel vat. You can call it anything you want. You just can’t call it meat because that should be reserved for traditional agriculture, and I am so proud that today we can do something for our protein industry.” Several other states have signed similar legislation. According to AgriPulse, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota have followed suit. They predict more states will follow suit soon.

Japan opens market to U.S. beef On Friday, May 17, Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue made the announcement that Japan has agreed to lift longstanding restrictions on American beef exports. Regardless of age, U.S. products from all cattle are now cleared to enter Japan for the first time since 2003. This new agreement allows for sales expansion in the U.S.’s top beef export market. Previously, Japan had imposed restrictions on cattle over 30 months old for U.S. beef imports in response to the outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, otherwise known as mad cow disease. “This is great news for American cattle producers, and Secretary Sonny Perdue and the Trump Administration deserve a lot of credit for helping knock down this non-tariff trade barrier in Japan,” says Jennifer Houston, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) president. “This underscores the safety of the U.S. beef herd, and it will hopefully send a signal to other Asian nations that non-sciencebased trade barriers like this one should be eliminated in their countries, as well.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that this expanded agreement could increase U.S. beef exports to Japan up to $200 million each year. The agreement also serves an important role in normalizing trade with Japan, as Japan further aligns its import requirements with international standards for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

Our Focus is the production of phenotypically attractive, functional,

long living Herefords through those leading, very well documented genetics which will generate wonderful beef for our customers. A strong contributor, through ET and natural calves, would be 13-year-old NS 492 Martha 678 by matings with dominant sires. A few of 678’s national winning, high carcass family are noted.

Hereford Registration 4-1-1 Members have the choice of registering as a pedigree or performance breeder. If a registry type wasn’t declared, then you’re automatically enrolled as a pedigree breeder.

Pedigree registry:

Pedigree breeders can register and transfer cattle but do not maintain and report performance data to the AHA. Production of expected progeny differences (EPDs) is waived on their herd.

1

Registry type

Performance registry:

Performance breeders participate in the Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) system and are required to maintain a female inventory, report calving ease and weaning information annually on the produce of every female in the inventory. EPDs are printed on the registration certificate.

To learn more about becoming a performance breeder and the ability to register calves with EPDs, go to Hereford.org/TPR or contact AHA Customer Service.

Electronic:

The AHA has a real-time online registration system called MyHerd.org. Members may sign up for a free online account and register their calves electronically. Electronic registrations receive a discount and registered information is made available in real time. Email your AHA member number to MyHerd@hereford.org to have an account set up or if you have already signed up, log on now at MyHerd.org.

Whole Herd TPR™ ­— Your Performance Partner Whole Herd TPR contacts 11500 N. Ambassador Dr., Ste. 410 Kansas City, MO 64153 816-842-3757 | 816-243-1314 fax MyHerd.org records@hereford.org Director of breed improvement: Shane Bedwell, sbedwell@hereford.org Director of records department: Stacy Sanders, ssanders@hereford.org Records supervisor: Tena Martin, tmartin@hereford.org Education and information services coordinator and assistant records supervisor: Laura Loschke lloschke@hereford.org

WHOLE HERD DEADLINES: July 1, 2019 Final date to submit all dam reproductive status and weaning information for the fall 2017 calf crop. July 15, 2019 Completion and return of fall 2019 herd inventories by this date will provide a $.25 per head discount on every female maintained on the fall inventory. Sept. 1, 2019 Completion and return of fall 2019 herd inventories after this date will incur an additional $2 per head surcharge on every female maintained on the fall inventory.

The basic concept of beef cattle performance records is to measure genetic differences between animals for traits of economic importance. The American Hereford Association (AHA) recognizes the importance of performance records in today’s beef industry and through Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™), can provide a system flexible enough to meet the needs of the most sophisticated recordkeeping breeder or those who desire to keep only the basics. Within herd and contemporary group records generated through Whole Herd TPR are measures for calving intervals, birth weights, weaning weights, yearling weights, scrotal circumference, hip height/frame measures and ratios for most of these measures. Good within-herd records include information obtained at birth, weaning, yearling and ultrasound carcass data. These within-herd and contemporarygroup records are adjusted for known environmental sources of variation in animal performance such as age of dam, age of calf, etc. Competition for commercial industry purchasing power between and within breeds is keen, and those breeders who document their seedstock’s performance for the commercial man’s investment have a distinct advantage in today’s beef

Whole Herd TPR steps: Step 1

Show an accurate inventory record of each female in your herd that is expected to calve in your selected season.

Step 2

As calving is completed, breeders are required to return to the AHA a Birth Information Worksheet (Form 1) with the birth information for every female enrolled in that season, including data on any that failed to calve, lost a calf, etc.

Step 3

Member submits completed Birth Report/Weaning Worksheet (Form 2) reporting weaning weight information or a disposal code for animals not weighed.

Dec. 1, 2019 Final date to submit all dam reproductive status and weaning information for the spring 2018 calf crop. Jan. 15, 2020 Completion and return of spring 2020 herd inventories by this date will provide a $.25 per head discount on every female maintained on the spring inventory. March 1, 2020 Final date to nominate sires for spring 2020 breeding in the National Reference Sire Program. March 1, 2020 Completion and return of spring 2020 herd inventories after this date will incur an additional $2 per head surcharge on every female maintained on the spring inventory.

industry as it moves toward “specification production” from conception to slaughter. Whole Herd TPR is a system of registration and performance tracking whereby every participating breeder updates his/her cow herd inventory annually and is charged for performance data on a per cow basis as opposed to a per calf basis. The system is positively endorsed by the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF), a North American umbrella organization of beef breed associations, beef producers, researchers and the academic community. With this system, the AHA measures economically relevant beef production traits such as fertility, longevity and reproductive efficiency. Furthermore, the greater volume of data reported from each herd for measured growth and carcass traits enhances the accuracy of Hereford expected progeny differences (EPDs). Participation in Whole Herd TPR is voluntary and breeders may choose to maintain pedigree records without recording performance information, so EPDs or other performance information is not printed on their registry certificates. Call the AHA to get your herd enrolled in the performance registry program, to get set up with MyHerd.org or if you are currently enrolled and have questions.

Step 4

The AHA invoices the breeder for his inventory costs in accordance with the number and kind of animals reported.

When the breeder returns Form 3 to the AHA, a yearling report (Form 4) and a calf crop EPD summary (Form 5) is provided.

Following data submission, the AHA provides a Dam Production Summary Report for each enrolled female.

The AHA returns Birth Information Worksheets (Form 1) to the breeder.

The AHA returns the Birth Report/Weaning Worksheet (Form 2) to the breeder.

The AHA returns the Weaning Report/ Yearling Worksheet (Form 3) to the breeder.

Note: Yearling information is not mandatory.

If ultrasound carcass data is collected, technician submits carcass data directly to an AHA-approved ultrasound lab that will process the data and forward results to the AHA for database inclusion.


Gold TPR Breeders

The Gold TPR Breeder recognition is presented to progressive Hereford breeders who have measured traits and collected and promptly submitted performance data at all levels of production. Breeders must meet a specific set of requirements in order to be eligible for the program. • Herd inventory submitted prior to inventory surcharge deadline. • Complete reporting of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on inventory. • Complete reporting of birth, weaning and yearling weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight. • Ultrasound data reported on 25 percent or more of the calf crop.

Platinum TPR Breeders

The Platinum TPR Breeder is the highest level of achievement when it comes to complete calf crop reporting. Breeders must meet all the requirements of Gold TPR Breeder status, plus they must also genotype 85 percent of the calves with a weaning weight submitted. The time requirement to do this will fall under the same two-year compliancy rule. The results of the genotype will need to be completed by Jan. 1 of the recognition year. As a result, the first award winners of this prestigious and progressive award will be recognized in the spring of 2020 and will be based on the 2018 calf crop.

More frequent genetic evaluations

In December 2017, the AHA implemented several updates to its genetic evaluation that include the implementation of a Single Step model for better incorporation of genomics, the ability to calculate, not estimate, EPD accuracies and allowing only animals to enter the evaluation that are born after the advent of Whole Herd TPR but also include three generations of pedigree. Along with this, key economically relevant traits (ERTs) as well as updated economic parameters are included in the three revised selection indexes. The updates of all of these techniques have allowed the AHA to offer a very reliable and comprehensive genetic evaluation that embraces the most up-to-date technology.

Just as important, the AHA’s genetic evaluation is run weekly. Evaluations are released each Monday morning. To be included in the Monday update, data must be submitted by midnight two Saturdays prior. For example, for data to be reflected in the EPD release that will occur on Aug. 12, 2019, data will

need to be summited by Aug. 3, 2019, at midnight. Planning ahead is crucial to be sure all phenotypic data (weights and ultrasound information) as well as genotypes are submitted well in advance to ensure appropriate data is reflected in the EPD.

Sharpen up on traits Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) – The AHA’s new Sustained Cow Fertility EPD is a prediction of a cow’s ability to continue to calve from 3 years of age through 12 years of age, given she calved as a 2-year-old. The EPD is expressed as a deviation in the proportion of the ten possible calvings to 12 years old expressed as a probability. For example, the daughters of a bull with a 30 EPD would have the genetic potential to have one more calf by age 12 than the daughters from a bull with a 20 EPD. In other words, the daughters from the 30 EPD bull would have a 10 percent greater probability of having one more calf than daugters of the bull with a 20 EPD. This is equivalent to saying that the daughters are 10 percent more likely to remain in the herd to age 12. Dry Matter Intake (DMI) – The Dry Matter Intake EPD predicts the daily consumption of pounds of feed. For example, if sire A has a DM EPD of 1.1 and sire B has a DMI EPD of 0.1, you would expect sire B’s progeny, if comparably mated, to consume on average 1 pound of feed less per day. Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) – The Baldy Maternal Index is a maternally focused index that is based on a production system that uses Hereford x Angus cross cows. Progeny of these cows are directed toward Certified Hereford Beef® (CHB). This index has significant weight on Sustained Cow Fertility, which predicts fertility and longevity of females. There is a slightly positive weight on Weaning Weight, Mature Cow Weight and Milk, which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do no increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on Dry Matter Intake by a positive weighting on Carcass Weight, which is anticipated to provide profitability from finishing of nonreplacement females and castrated males. Marbling and Rib-eye Area are also positively weighted to keep the harvested progeny successful for CHB. This index is geared to identify Hereford bulls that will be profitable when used in a rotational cross with mature commercial Angus cows. Brahman Influence Index (BII$) – The Brahman Influence Index is a maternally focused index that is based on a production system that uses Brahman x Hereford cross cows. Progeny of these cows are directed toward a commodity beef market since CHB does not accept Brahmaninfluenced cattle. This index has significant weight on Sustained Cow Fertility, which predicts fertility and longevity of females. There is a slightly positive weight on Weaning Weight, Mature Cow Weight and Milk, which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do not increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on Dry Matter Intake but a positive weighting on Carcass Weight, which is anticipated to provide a profitability in finishing nonreplacement females and castrated males. Marbling and Rib-eye Area are also positively weighted to keep harvested progeny successful for a variety of commodity-based programs. This index targets producers that use Hereford bulls on Brahman-influenced cows. Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) – The Certified Hereford Beef Index is a terminal sire index that is built on a production system where Hereford bulls are mated to mature commercial Angus cows and all progeny will be targeted for CHB after the finishing phase. This index has significant weight on Carcass Weight to ensure profit on the rail. As well there is a positive weighting for Average Daily Gain along with a negative weighting on Dry Matter Intake to ensure efficient pounds of growth in the finishing phase. Keep in mind, this production system takes advantage of complementary breeding with the commercial Angus cow. Although Marbling is weighted positively in this index, a positive weighting for Rib-eye Area and a negative weighting for Back Fat are a greater priority in this index to allow for optimum end-product merit. This is the only index that has no emphasis on fertility. Remember that no replacement heifers are being retained. For additional trait information, visit the Genetics section of Hereford.org.

Commercial Programs The American Hereford Association (AHA) is committed to growing demand for Hereford genetics and providing breeders tools backed by uncompromised data and sound research that drive profit. Additionally, the Association has long been dedicated to offering its members the most robust genetic evaluation possible. Developing tools to provide commercial cattlemen with information to advance their programs through heterosis is a major focus of the AHA. The Hereford Advantage, Premium Red Baldy and Maternal Advantage programs are three resources developed to assist commercial cattlemen with incorporating Hereford genetics into their programs more successfully and adding value to their operations. For more information regarding any commercial programs, contact Trey Befort, AHA director of commercial programs, at tbefort@herefordbeef.org.

Hereford Advantage Program

The Hereford Advantage program allows commercial breeders to identify genetically backed, high-quality Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle and to add value to cattle meeting the program requirements. The program continues to grow in popularity as more commercial producers take advantage of the program to help market their cattle. To participate, producers must complete and submit an online form found at HerefordFeederCattle.com or must contact the AHA to get started. Participants must have registered Hereford bulls with transferred ownership. Additionally, the Hereford bull battery average Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$)* value ranking must be in the top 50 percent of the breed. Once the sire information is received, the information will be reviewed, and a sire summary with expected progeny difference (EPD) and profit index rankings will be returned. If all program requirements are met, the group information will be placed under the “Feeder Cattle Listings” page on the Hereford.org website. Producers will also receive additional marketing support, and they may use the program logo for all marketing purposes. The CHB$ is a terminal sire index that is built on a production system where Hereford

bulls are used on British-cross cows with a focus on gain and end-product merit.

Premium Red Baldy Program

Premium Red Baldy is a tagging program designed to take advantage of hybrid vigor by maximizing the best traits of both Hereford and Red Angus and providing commercial producers with premium replacement females. The program has the ideal balance of maternal and carcass traits, which will yield cattle poised to increase the profitability of the commercial producer. Premium Red Baldy uses genetics supported by the only two beef breed associations backed by whole herd reporting. Producers interested in verifying their bull battery should call their respective breed representative to complete the verification process and to order Allflex tags for $0.99 each. Interested breeders will contact Trey Befort, AHA director of commercial programs, at tbefort@herefordbeef. org or Chessie Mitchell, Red Angus Association of America tag program coordinator, at chessie@redangus.org. Breeders must provide registration numbers for Hereford or Red Angus sires used at that time. Upon completion of a short phone interview, tags will be shipped to the producer for qualifying females. Only enough tags to match the number of red-bodied and white- or brockle-faced females born on the operation will be issued. It is also important to note Premium Red Baldy is not a Process Verified Program (PVP) through the United States Department of Agriculture. Qualifications • Female-only program — No steers will be tagged in this non-PVP tagging program. • Females must be sired by a bull battery ranking in the top 50 percent of the breed for Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) or Herdbuilder Index (HB). Registration must also be transferred to the participating producer. • Targeted breed percentages on qualified females will range from 25-75 percent Red Angus and Hereford, with a small allowance for other breeds.

• Females must be red-bodied with either a bald or brockle face. • No black-hided cattle will be admitted regardless of genetic makeup.

Maternal Advantage Program

This female-focused program is designed to take advantage of hybrid vigor by capitalizing on Hereford genetics. The program generates females with added longevity, more docility, increased fertility and more profit per year. Producers using Hereford bulls on British-based or Brahman-based females in their breeding program can utilize this program. To take advantage of the program, producers must verify eligible females are sired by registered Hereford bulls. Participating bull batteries must rank in the top 50 percent of the breed for Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) if used on Britishbased females or the top 50 percent of the breed for Brahman Influence Index (BII$) if used on Brahmanbased females. Both of these maternally focused indexes are geared to identify Hereford bulls that will be profitable when used in a rotational cross with mature commercial Angus-influenced or Brahman-influenced females. Both BMI$ and BII$ have significant weight on the AHA’s Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) expected progeny difference (EPD), which predicts fertility and longevity of females. They also have an emphasis on growth, efficiency and endproduct merit for nonretained females. AHA commercial programs overview Program

This fall the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) reached an all time high in net assets and in scholarship payouts. HYFA and the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) work together to provide opportunities for the breed’s future leaders and to pave the way to successful and rewarding careers for these young people. The foundation holds fast to its mission of scholarship, leadership and education by providing programs that not only showcase the junior’s talents but build leaders and prepare them for a bright future in the beef industry and beyond.

What is HYFA?

Scholarships were the HYFA’s first mission in the fall of 2004, when the first $750 Gary Bishop Scholarship was awarded. In 2005 it was followed by $4,750 with the addition of the Bob and Dolores Call Scholarship and the unveiling of the $5 million capital endowment campaign. Thanks to the late Bill and Jo Ellard, the EE Ranches Inc. $200,000 endowment led to $18,250 in scholarships being awarded in the fall of 2006. This endowment was the beginning of great things to come for the HYFA, and 12 years later, the HYFA proudly will have awarded $173,000 after the summer scholarships have been dispersed. This kind of growth is monumental. Highlighting the HYFA’s activities this last year was the establishment of the Cottonwood Springs Farm Educational Endowment gifted by Tim and Nancy Keilty of Cedar, Mich. This $250,000 gift will propel education to the next level with the sole purpose of providing financial support for educational programs and contests at the annual Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). In recent years, the foundation has also added the Coley-Malir Leadership Endowment, which allowed the HYFA to contribute $50,000 to the Faces of Leadership Conference this year. In addition, junior members experience various other educational opportunities in and outside the showring each year through the JNHE and the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout. As the HYFA surpasses the four million dollar mark for total net assets, here is a quick glance at how the foundation is giving back

and the programs that are being funded:

$170,000

$60,000

Faces of Leadership support

$50,000

NJHA Fed Steer Shootout

$20,000

Total support in 2019 $300,000 Fundraising at a glance

New fundraising programs are added each year to support leadership and education. In 2018 the Foundation 1 Club was initiated by Sierra Ranches, Modesto, Calif., with 1 percent of the proceeds of their fall production sale being donated to the HYFA. The Ladies of the Royal Sale and Mile High Night Sale followed suit, and the foundation is excited that nearly $35,000 was generated in the first year. The HYFA welcomed Hereford Prep Collection and Michelle Weber Studios to the Foundation 1 Club and invite others to come grow with the HYFA and to see how 1 percent over time can make a huge difference. The Lot 1 Foundation Female continues to be one of the largest funding platforms for the foundation. This tradition celebrated 11 years at the 2019 Mile High Night Sale and has generated $890,000 in its lifetime to support youth initiatives.

Come grow with HYFA

Breeder, industry and corporate support is vital to the HYFA’s success. Since the HYFA is a 501(c)(3) corporation, all contributions are tax deductible and no gift is too big or too small when it comes to supporting the foundation. The HYFA supports the programs and activities that not only benefit the Hereford breed but also help establish the future of the Hereford breed for tomorrow’s youth. The most common methods of giving include cash donations, stocks, sponsorships and memorials.

Mission statement

The National Junior Hereford Association’s (NJHA) mission is to create and promote enthusiasm for the Hereford breed while providing opportunities through leadership, education and teamwork, thus ensuring a brighter future for youth and the cattle industry. The NJHA is one of the largest, strongest and most active junior programs in the country. The NJHA, through its extensive leadership programs, continues to lay the foundation for the beef industry’s future leaders. It is fun to watch as members of this association graduate from the junior ranks and go on to be leaders, not only in the Hereford breed but in the entire agriculture industry. It is so rewarding to see past junior directors leading the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board and using some of the skills and networks they gained from serving on the junior board to help them be the best adult leaders they can be. The NJHA membership is on the rise, and in 2018, 3,478 active members took advantage of all the opportunities available to Hereford youth through the association, which was up 5.2 percent from the previous year. Do you want to be a member of the NJHA? If you are under the age of 22 and love Hereford cattle, you can join. Simply fill out the online form found on the website JrHereford.org. Then you’re on your way to becoming a member of one of the largest junior beef breed organizations in the world.

Junior National Hereford Expo

Voted Best of the Barns in 2018 and one of the largest junior beef breed shows in the U.S., the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is a highlight of the NJHA’s summer activities. It is held every July and is cosponsored by the AHA, the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and affiliated state Hereford associations. Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, this summer spectacular provides an opportunity for competition between junior members and their cattle projects. A hands-on program for youth provides educational, leadership and motivational forums. During the event, youth can participate in more than 20 skill-based contests. Mark your calendars — the 2019 JNHE will be in Denver, Colo., at the historic National Western Stock Show Complex and will be themed “Herefords on the Hill.” In 2020 the JNHE is headed to Louisville, Ky., for “Banners in the Bluegrass” July 11-18, and in 2021 the event will be back in Madison, Wis., July 2-9.


Faces of Leadership and NJHA Fed Steer Shootout contest

It’s not all about showing Herefords. While the JNHE promotes learning aspects of showing cattle and educational activities associated with relative contests, the NJHA’s annual Faces of Leadership Conference serves to empower NJHA members with the skills they need to develop into the best leaders they can be. Through the Faces of Leadership Conference young leaders are exposed to opportunities in the industry. The conference cultivates communication skills, encourages working in team settings and focuses on individual development. Junior members from all parts of the country participate in the event each year. During the three-day event, more than 100 participants listen to nationally known speakers and participate in junior board workshops, which focus on leadership development, team building and becoming better public speakers. In the past few years, the event has traveled to California, Michigan State University, Arkansas, South Dakota State University, the Texas Panhandle and Kansas State University. From the amazing ranch tours to up close looks at the industry at Tyson Foods and Trans Ova Genetics, new doors are being opened and Faces of Leadership participants truly are experiencing leadership like they never have before. The NJHA is excited to be in Lincoln, Neb., July 30-Aug. 3 at the university’s Innovation Campus. This conference is offered to junior members ages 14-21 and is made possible by the Coley-Malir Leadership Endowment. Now in its third year, the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout is proud to have BioZyme Inc. on board as a premier sponsor and is making this contest even more engaging and educational as participants experience cattle feeding in a real world setting. The contest is hosted at Gregory Feedlots Inc. in Tabor, Iowa, and is open to pen-of-three or individual Hereford or commercial steers. As the 2019 steers are harvested, the NJHA is gearing up for the 2020 delivery dates, which will be the end of November, and all steers will need to weigh 500-800 pounds.

Hereford Show Information AHA Show Rules • Cattle entered must be registered in the Herd Book of the American Hereford Association (AHA). Entries with registrations “pending” or illegible tattoos or improper tattoos as shown on the registration certificate at check-in time are ineligible for competition. Exhibitors are subject to the Association’s special rule on class qualification. Entries in these classes are accepted with the understanding that the exhibitor agrees to abide by the rule in all respects. • The exhibition of cattle displaying false hair will not be allowed. • Any product administered internally or used externally to alter the conformation of an animal for exhibition is prohibited. This includes the use of graphite, hemp or other similar substances externally and steroids or growth stimulants internally. • The act of artificially filling animals internally, which includes stomach pumping, drench tubes or any other method by mouth or esophagus, is prohibited. • All animals shown in group classes must have been shown in their respective single-age class. No transfer from one (1) breed to another, after entry, will be permitted. • Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) values will be provided to the judge and audience for all animals shown. Animals without EPD data are eligible to show but will have N/A (not available) in place of missing data. • It is recommended by the AHA Show Committee that classes with 10 or more head be considered to be split, depending on animals’ birthdates in each particular class. • Any animal without a legible tattoo will not be eligible to show.

• All Hereford animals must be officially recorded (registered) 30 days prior to show date to be eligible to show at a National Hereford Show. • An animal that is scurred (scurs are small, rudimentary horns that are loosely attached to the head, which are considered to be expressed only in animals that are genetically heterozygous for the polled gene) will show in the polled division of Hereford shows. Once an animal is confirmed to be scurred by an AHA field representative, then this designation will be placed on the animal’s registration papers. Once this determination has been made and reported to the AHA office, then the owner may remove the scurs. Animals with scurs removed will show in the polled division of Hereford shows. Once an animal is confirmed polled or scurred, it will retain this designation forever. • The individual classes will be made up and divided after the cattle are checked in at the show. They will be judged from the youngest to the oldest animal within each class. • Calves on the side of cow-calf pairs MUST BE the cow’s natural calf. • For cattle exhibited at the National Western Stock Show: › Exhibitors with senior bull calves and/or intermediate, yearling and senior bulls are required to provide a licensed veterinarian’s statement indicating the bull has been semen checked and evaluated as fertile. Semen evaluation is to occur within 90 days of the show. This statement must be presented at check-in during the National Western Stock Show. › Exhibitors with females in the spring and junior yearling divisions must be confirmed pregnant within 45 days of show by a licensed veterinarian or by blood test or show with a calf at side.

AHA Show Classifications The decision to have both a Hereford and polled Hereford show or to have a combined show will be left up to the discretion of the state breed associations and show management.

Cow-calf (Any female older than the below ages with a calf at side.) • Calf older than 270 days of age on the show date is not eligible to show in cow-calf class. • If the cow is horned and the calf polled, then the pair shows in the horned cow-calf class, and if the cow is polled and the calf is horned, then the pair shows in the polled cow-calf class. • Calf is eligible for individual classes but must be entered in the appropriate class. 2.

Rules and classifications

Exhibitors in Hereford classes are subject to the Association’s special rule on class qualification, and any animal without a legible tattoo will not be eligible for show. For state and regional shows, all Hereford animals must be officially recorded at show time to be eligible to show. For national shows all Hereford animals must be officially recorded (registered) 30 days prior to the show date to be eligible to show. Entries with registrations “Pending” or “Applied For” will be ineligible to show.

Group classes

Get-of-sire — Four animals shown in above single-entry classes with both sexes represented and all progeny of one sire. It is permissible to use either the cow or calf from a cowcalf pair for the get-of-sire. Get-of-sire may be comprised of animals from one or more owners and of both horned and polled animals. Best six head — All animals must have been shown in their respective single-entry classes, and they must be owned by the exhibitor or by a member of his/her immediate family. A cow-calf will be considered as two head in the best six head class. Best six head may be comprised of both horned and polled animals.

Premier exhibitor, premier breeder

Awarded with the following point system: first place = 5 points, second place = 4 points, third place = 3 points, fourth place = 2 points and fifth place = 1 point. No points will be given for champions. Points will be awarded for the best six head for premier exhibitor. The same scoring system as above will be used for awarding points for the group classes. It is suggested that banners be given to the premier exhibitor and the premier breeder. 2019 Hereford Handbook / 15


AHA Show Classifications continued

National junior show ownership rule

Cow-calf pairs, heifers and steers may be jointly owned by siblings provided all are individual members of the National Junior Hereford Association and are between the ages of 7 and 22 as of January 1 of the current year. No animal is eligible to compete if recorded in joint ownership (other than the sibling rule) or ownership of farm or family name. Bred-and-owned bulls, however, may be owned by the exhibitor, a ranch/family name as long as the junior exhibitor is also the breeder.

Points for national and regional show bull and show female of the year will be based on the Regional Show Point System. Animals do not have to show in a regional show in order to be eligible for show bull or female of the year in the respective four quadrants. An animal may only win show bull or female of the year for one quadrant per year. Ownership percentage followed by ownership succession (breeder, first owner, second owner, etc.) will determine from which quadrant the animal will be recognized.

AHA point shows and awards • Official results from the show staff must be submitted within 30 days of completion of the show. • Results must contain the following: › Eight-digit AHA registration number › Complete registration name as recorded in the AHA registration system › Owner(s) as listed on the papers from the AHA registration system • In order for results to be included in the calculation for show animals of the year, shows must have at least 25 head exhibited at the show. • Shows that are listed as a national or regional point show as specified by the AHA show and sale committee will submit results to Bailey Clanton with the AHA at bclanton@hereford.org or mail them to American Hereford Association, Attn: Bailey Clanton, 11500 N. Ambassador Dr., Ste. 410, Kansas City, MO 64153. At the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference and National Hereford Show in Kansas City, Mo., the Association will recognize four national show animals of the year, continue to award 16 regional show animals of the year and recognize eight regional premier exhibitors of the year. • National Show Bull and Female of the Year for horned and polled • Regional Show Bull and Female of the Year for horned and polled • Regional Premier Exhibitor for horned and polled

AHA Rules and Regulations SECTION I: MEMBERSHIP A. Membership Types

1. Life membership 2. Annual (recording) membership 3. Junior membership 4. Non-resident membership

B. Life membership

Life memberships that were purchased in the past will continue to be recognized by the Association. Life members only pay member service fees and do not pay dues. Life members may attend all meetings of the Association. They have voting rights at all official membership meetings as long as they are active members (have registered at least one animal in the previous calendar year). Life members receive member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle. Lifetime memberships can be transferred to immediate family members; however, the membership name must remain the same.

C. Annual (recording) membership

Recording memberships are annual memberships issued by the Association in the name of an individual, farm or ranch, partnerships or corporation. To remain active, the recording member must pay annual dues on the anniversary date of their joining as a recording member. Recording members may attend all meetings of the Association. They have voting rights at all official membership meetings as long as they are active members (have registered at least one animal in the previous calendar year). Recording members receive member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle.

the member’s herd will participate in. Each membership can have only one participation level designation. The two tiers and a brief description of each are as follows: Pedigree registry: This participation level is designed for breeders who wish to register and transfer purebred Hereford cattle but are not interested in maintaining and reporting performance data to AHA. Pedigree registry breeders can submit registry and transfer applications on a per head fee basis established by the Board of Directors. Pedigree breeders choose to waive performance recording on their animals and, therefore, waive the production of EPDs on their herd. Performance registry: This participation level is structured and oriented to simplify the billing and reporting of performance testing herds. Registry and transfer fees are assessed at the same rate as for pedigree breeders. Performance registry breeders are also required to maintain an accurate and up-to-date female inventory, listing all females currently in their breeding herd with AHA. Performance registry breeders are required to annually report calving ease and weaning weight information on the produce of every female in the inventory. Additional measures including birth and yearling weights, as well as carcass traits, can be reported but are not required. EPDs will be printed on the certificate. EPDs will only be reported on registered animals. Nonregistered animals or genetic material will not be provided EPDs.

SECTION II: AHA RECORDS, RULES AND POLICY

Junior membership in the Association is available to anyone under 22 years of age. The fee for junior membership is $15, assessed annually on September 1. The junior membership is available until the holder reaches his or her 22nd birthday. At that time, he/she may acquire an adult (life or recording) membership. Junior members have all of the privileges of recording members (except voting) including member rate fees for registering and transferring Hereford cattle, as well as participating in junior activities and scholarships.

Application for registration of your calves is a part of the record keeping requirement of Hereford cattle. Extra careful attention to detail in submitting applications for registration will save time for you and your Association. Be sure all information is supplied and that information is accurate and legible. Applying for registry of your calves when they are still young (four months or younger) is important, SINCE IT REDUCES THE RISK OF ERROR AND SAVES YOU BOTH TIME AND MONEY. There is one basic form used by the Association for registration application. Breeders participating at the pedigree registry level should disregard the fields of information used to submit birth performance data. Reports generated from the processing of registration applications will be appropriate for the breeder’s level of participation.

E. Non-resident membership

Tattooing calves:

D. Junior membership

Non-resident members are non-voting members residing in another country that wish to take advantage of member services including registry, total performance recording, selling of semen to members, and transfer of ownership of animals to other members. Non-resident members are subject to the same rules and fees as U.S. resident members.

F. Annual member service fee

Lifetime, recording and junior memberships require an annual member service fee of $100 ($20 for junior members) in order to register an animal during the current fiscal year. The fiscal year is September 1 through August 31. Each paid member service fee will generate a one-year subscription to the Hereford World magazine (except in the case of a junior membership). This fee is used to offset the costs of several under-funded services offered active registry accounts.

G. Membership herd designation

The Association has two different tiers or levels that members can participate in when registering and transferring Hereford cattle. The mechanisms for billing of services and services available are different between each of the tiers; therefore, each membership account must be designated as to which tier or level

Tattoos are a requirement for registry in the American Hereford Record. Hereford breeders were the first to adopt the ear tattoo as a requirement for registry. A tattoo outfit consists of a pair of specially designed pliers with rows of digits numbered 0 to 9 and a bottle of India ink. Such equipment may be purchased from most livestock supply stores. Select the desired number by rotating the digits in the ear marker. Before punching the animal’s ear, assure yourself that everything is in order by punching a piece of cardboard. Next, restrain the calf’s head so as to prevent violent movement while applying the tattoo. Select a spot in the center of the ear and clean thoroughly with a cloth and rubbing alcohol. Avoid placing the tattoo over one of the ribs of the ear but rather place the tattoo between the ribs of the ear. Place the ear between the jaws of the pliers with the numbers or letters on the inside of the ear. Close the pliers quickly and firmly and then release. Use a finger or toothbrush to smear ink over the punctures made by the tattoo and rub thoroughly until ink is worked into each of the holes. Make a written record of the marks placed in the ear. It is strongly advised that breeders place the tattoo in both ears to enhance the chances that a complete tattoo identity can be established. 2019 Hereford Handbook / 25


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

Herd Book of the American Hereford Association

Rule 1. OFFICIAL RECORD: The official record of the Association shall be the American Hereford Record. Such record shall be maintained in the AHA office. Rule 2. HERD BOOK: Entries in the American Hereford Record shall contain the registration number, name, sex, tattoo, date of birth, name and registry number of the sire and dam and the name of the breeder.

SECTION III: REGISTRATIONS

Rule 1. PRIVILEGES OF REGISTRATION: Applications for entry will only be accepted from members. Non-members must become members in order to register an animal. Rule 2. ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for entry in the American Hereford Record, an animal must be the offspring of registered parents, both of which have been previously recorded in the American Hereford Record. Both horned and polled Herefords are eligible for entry into the record. Herefords registered in other associations (members of the World Hereford Council) can be entered in the American Hereford Record, thereby making their offspring eligible for registration. Rule 3. APPLICATION FOR ENTRY: Application for entry should be made on the official application form (FORM 1) or through an official AHA approved electronic software system. Rule 4. AGE OF SIRE: There is no minimum or maximum age specified for a Hereford sire or his progeny to be eligible for entry. However, applications indicating the sire was less than nine months of age at time of service will be questioned for accuracy. Rule 5. AGE OF DAM: There is no minimum or maximum age specified for a Hereford dam or her progeny to be eligible for entry. However, applications indicating that the dam was less than nine months of age at time of conception will be questioned for accuracy. Rule 6. 283-DAY RULE: A calf born less than 283 days after the birth of its dam’s previous calf will be questioned. The breeder must then provide an explanation for the early delivery and a ruling will be made as to whether the entry will be allowed. Rule 7. 21-DAY RULE: Females exposed to one bull must not be exposed to another bull in less than 21 days after such exposure. Avoiding double or multiple exposures will help provide positive identification of the service sire. Exposure to a second bull in less than 21 days might mean the correct service sire cannot be positively identified, requiring DNA typing of both sires, the dam and the calf. Rule 8. DNA TYPING: • All Hereford bulls born after Jan. 1, 2011, are required to be DNA typed at the official AHA DNA laboratory before their progeny can be registered. • Whenever the eligibility for registration of any animal is in doubt because of uncertain or unknown parentage, DNA typing by the Association shall be required. Rule 9. MULTIPLE BIRTH: Twins or other multiple birth calves are eligible for registration. The application for registry, however, should specify such at birth.

Rule 10. TATTOO: Calves must be tattooed before application for registry is made. Each breeder may devise his own plan or system of tattoo identification using either numbers or letters or a combination of both. Any marks other than numbers or letters, however, are not permitted — meaning brand marks, symbols, etc. cannot be used. Duplication of tattoos within your herd is strongly discouraged as tattoos are frequently used by breeders as a primary form of identification. Duplication can lead to much confusion for breeder and the Association office alike. The tattoo in one ear shall be limited to a maximum of eight characters. If the tattoo should become illegible, the same marking shall be placed in a different area of the ear. No attempt shall be made to alter or over-imprint the old tattoo. The Association must be notified when an animal is retattooed. Rule 11. NAMING HEREFORDS: It is the responsibility of the owner to select names for his cattle. The name must not be more than 30 spaces long, counting spaces between words. For example, PRINCE DOMINO ADVANCE JUNO 133 is exactly 30 spaces long. Brands, symbols and commas cannot be used. Avoid duplicating names as no two Herefords should be named the same. It is the breeder’s responsibility to avoid using names and prefixes that are being used by other breeders. Names should be appropriate for the gender of the animal, and it is recommended that names reflect the line of breeding where possible. Embryo transfer calves will carry the designation embryo transfer (ET) at the end of their name, accounting for three spaces. The Association reserves the right to change the name assigned to an animal on an application for registry if the name submitted is deemed to be inappropriate. Rule 12. CHANGING NAMES: The name of a Hereford may be changed, provided the animal has no registered offspring. The name may be changed only once in the lifetime of an animal. All owners must agree to the name change in the case of a partnership owned animal. Letters must be submitted from the first and all current owners requesting the change of name along with the certificate and required fee. Rule 13. JOINT OWNERSHIP (BREEDING INTEREST): No application for registration or transfer of an animal which shows more than four owners shall be accepted for entry in the American Hereford Record. Rule 14. DUPLICATE CERTIFICATES: If original certificates are lost or destroyed, the owner may secure duplicates from the Association by providing the sex, registry number and tattoo of each animal. If the registry number is not available, the registration number of the dam, name of the person who registered the animal, and the sex, age and tattoo of the animal in question must be provided. The fee for duplicate certificates for member and nonmembers is available from the AHA Records Department. Rule 15. CORRECTION OF CERTIFICATES: It is recognized that occasionally errors are committed in registering cattle, and these should be corrected. If an error is discovered, it should be reported to the Association immediately and the incorrect certificate returned with a letter of explanation. Corrections are made without charge if done within six months of the issue date or if the Association made the error. The fee for making corrections after the six-month period is available from the AHA Records Department. Rule 16. ARTIFICIAL SERVICE: Calves may be registered that were produced through artificial insemination (AI) provided they comply with the rules governing AI as discussed in SECTION V: ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION.

26 / 2019 Hereford Handbook


Rule 17. ELIGIBILITY FOR EMBRYO TRANSPLANT CALVES: Registration of offspring resulting from embryo transplant (ET) shall be made on an Application for Registration (Form 1). Certificates issued shall be designated by ET following the name of the calf. The name must be no longer than 30 characters long including the ET designation. Registry of offspring resulting from ET may be implemented only after the following steps have been taken: • DNA profile of sire and donor dam must be recorded with the Association. DNA profile kits are available from the Association. The names and registry numbers of the animals to be tissue sampled must be supplied. • Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service must accompany the application for each calf when the sire is not in the same recorded ownership as the donor dam. Rule 17A. NEW EMBRYO TRANSFER POLICY: For ET calves there will no longer be an ET certificate required for registration. The new requirement for registering an ET calf will be the reporting of the recovery date of the embryo at the time of registry. ET calves will be charged an additional $10 per head over and above the normal registry rate. Rule 18. LEASING HEREFORDS: Herefords may be leased, provided a statement of lease is on file with the Association. If a lease statement is on file listing each animal being leased by name and registration number, the lessee can register calves sired by the bulls or produced by the cows as if he were the actual owner, provided there are no more than three owners already listed. At the end of the lease period, unless extended, registration privileges revert back to the recorded owner. In order to make this process more efficient and less confusing, the Association will adopt the following policies regarding leasing Hereford cattle: • The required information needed by the Association for leasing animals will be communicated using one consistent and common lease form to be used by all members wishing to participate in this type of practice. The lease form will contain only the required information for the Association’s needs and is to be used expressly for that intent. The lease form should not be construed as a binding agreement between the lessor and lessee. The Association shall in no way be involved in or assume liability for the lease, terms of the lease of registered Herefords, or the passage of legal rights thereto. • All lease periods must include a beginning and ending date; no open-ended leases will be accepted. • All animals involved in the lease shall be included on the lease form(s) by their registration number and name. • The lease form must be submitted by the lessor with his/her signature. • Should the lessor and lessee agree to extend the lease, documented notification will be required in the Association’s office should the birth dates of any calves being registered out of sire or dams involved in the lease not coincide with the time period of the lease. • If the lessor or lessee wishes to lease additional or different animals, then an additional lease form(s) should be completed with all required information and submitted by the lessor. Rule 19. IMPORTED HEREFORDS: Herefords imported from another country must be recorded in the American Hereford Record if their calves are to be registered. Registration of imported cattle must be accomplished within one year from the date of purchase of imported cattle.

See section for the procedures for recording imported cattle or semen interests in bulls from another country. Rule 20. REGISTRATION OF HEREFORDS OVER TWO YEARS OF AGE: Application for registration of an animal received by the Association after two years from the date of birth shall be considered for registration only when accompanied by a written statement from the applicant setting forth the reason application was not submitted within the generally accepted registration period. These applications and required fees must be approved by the Board of Directors. Rule 21. REGISTRATION FOR THE ESTATE OF A DECEASED PERSON: In the event of the death of one who normally would apply for registration of cattle, the Association requires there shall be filed in its office all documents necessary to prove the person requesting registration is legally authorized to do so. Rule 22. REGISTRATION BY AFFIDAVIT: In case of neglect or refusal by the seller to register a calf sold at side of dam, registration may be approved by the Board of Directors on the basis of the facts furnished to substantiate the claim. Each affidavit must be accompanied by proof of a sale and payment in full of the purchase price and evidence of whether the dam’s breeding was natural or artificial. Rule 23. REGISTRATION ACCURACY: Accurately kept private records are essential, and in any case where an application is regarded as questionable, the burden of the proof with regard to same shall belong to the applicant, who must sustain his claims by a preponderance of evidence. Whenever the accuracy of data contained in an application to register an animal is challenged, the matter may be referred to the Board of Directors for investigation. Rule 24. MISREPRESENTATION OR FRAUD: If an animal’s registration has been obtained through misrepresentation or fraud, or if the date of birth, tattoo number, sire, dam or service information or any other fact regarding the animal has been misrepresented, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems necessary.

SECTION IV: TRANSFER OF REGISTRATIONS

Rule 1. RESPONSIBILITY: It is the responsibility of the seller of registered Herefords to execute properly the official transfer of ownership to the buyer. Every change of ownership of an animal used for breeding purposes must be recorded by official transfer on the American Hereford Record. No entry on the face of the certificate of registry shall be made except in the office of the Association and any unauthorized entry shall render a certificate null and void, subject to issuance of a replacement certificate at an additional fee. Rule 2. IDENTIFICATION: It shall be the duty of the seller, before offering a registered Hereford for sale or applying for transfer, to verify that the animal carries legible tattoo marks matching those entered on its certificate. Rule 3. APPLICATION FOR TRANSFER: Application for transfer shall be made either electronically through AHA’s online service or in hard copy form on the reverse side of the registration certificate and signed by the seller or an authorized agent. The application should be legibly completed and must specify name and location of the buyer and date of delivery. For bred females, service information is also required. 2019 Hereford Handbook / 27


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

Rule 4. COWS WITH CALF AT SIDE: When a cow is transferred with a calf at side, the calf must first be registered to the individual, partnership or corporation in whose name the cow was registered on the date of birth of the calf. A separate transfer of the calf is then required to the new owner. This is often referred to as a “transfer on entry.” (See backside of registration application.) Rule 5. CALF TRANSFERRED AT TIME OF REGISTRATION: As described above, a calf must first be registered in the membership name of the dam’s owner at the time of birth. Then a separate transfer to the new owner is required. Rule 6. TRANSFER BY AFFIDAVIT: In the event of neglect or refusal by the seller to apply for transfer of registration, transfer may be recorded if approved by a majority of the Board of Directors on the basis of the facts furnished to substantiate the claim. Each affidavit must be accompanied by proof of sale and payment in full of the purchase price of the animal. Rule 7. TRANSFERS CONSIGNED TO PUBLIC SALE: Sale managers or their representatives may fill in the buyer’s name on the application for transfer of animals consigned to public sales, and if authorized by the consignor, sign such transfers in his stead. Such applications must indicate the name of the sale manager or agent representing the consignor. Applications executed under this rule are subject to Rule 12 of this section. Rule 8. TRANSFER FROM THE ESTATE OF A DECEASED PERSON: In the event of the death of the owner of Hereford cattle, the Association requires that there should be filed in its office, documents showing the person requesting transfer is legally authorized and entitled to request such transfer. Applications executed under this rule are also subject to Rule 13 of this section. Rule 9. TRANSFER OF EXPORTED ANIMALS: Application for transfer of an animal exported to another country shall be made with a regular Transfer Application. Rule 10. RESPONSIBILITY OF LEGAL TITLE: A transfer of registration on the records of the American Hereford Association is not to be construed as the conveyance of legal title by the Association. The Association shall in no way be involved in or assume liability for the purchase, sale or terms of the sale of registered Herefords or the passage of legal title thereto. Rule 11. JOINTLY OWNED ANIMALS: No animal shall be transferred to more than four owners of record at any one time. A “syndicate” or similar type entity consisting of one or more individuals, firms, etc. may be listed as one or more of the four designated owners of record. Rule 12. MISREPRESENTATION OR FRAUD: If an animal’s registration has been transferred through misrepresentation or fraud, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article IX of the Bylaws, including, without limitation, suspension of the animal’s registration and any registrations of descendants of such animal and refusals of the Association to receive subsequent application of any kind from any person implicated in the misrepresentation or fraud. Rule 13. AUTHORIZED SIGNATURE: A certificate of registry does not establish legal ownership of cattle but simply reflects the name in which cattle are registered on the books of the Association. The Association will usually make any requested change or transfer of cattle registration upon the 28 / 2019 Hereford Handbook

presentation, to the Association, of the Registry Certificate covering the cattle and purporting to be signed with the name in which the Registry Certificate is issued. Due to the large number of transfers, it is impractical for the Association to verify signatures or require proof that the person signing the Registry Certificate and requesting change or transfer is in fact authorized to do so. Accordingly, a Registry Certificate should be kept in a safe place to insure against its falling into the hands of an unauthorized person who could then cause change or transfer of registration on the Association’s books and the issuance of a new Registry Certificate. If the Association receives conflicting instructions regarding any change or transfer of registration, the Association will, unless restrained by appropriate court order, honor the request of the person presenting the appropriate Registry Certificate.

SECTION V: ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION

Rule 1. DNA PROFILING: All bulls used in an artificial insemination program must be DNA profiled and a record of their DNA profile must be filed with the Association before calves sired artificially by such bulls shall be eligible for registration or before Non-Owner AI Certificates may be purchased. The official policy of the Association is to use DNA only for parentage verification as of December 2002. Rule 2. AI BULL PERMIT: The breeder using a bull for artificial breeding purposes must have received an AI bull permit issued by the Association. The Association must have on file a DNA profile report for the bull and his parents before the AI bull permit will be issued. Rule 3. DEATH OF BULLS: Calves conceived after the death of a bull shall be eligible for registration under the same conditions and provisions governing the eligibility of calves conceived by AI. The Association may request that calves sired by deceased bulls be parentage verified. Ownership of a deceased bull may be transferred if they are AI permitted. Rule 4. LABELING OF SEMEN: Semen must be properly identified by name and registration number of the bull and the date of collection. Unlabeled or mislabeled semen should not be used to produce calves for registration in the American Hereford Record. It shall be the responsibility of the owner of record or each co-owner of record of a bull used artificially to require each person or organization collecting, processing and freezing semen to identify the semen before freezing. Rule 5. WITHIN HERD USE: No Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service are required to register the resulting offspring when both cow and bull are in the same recorded ownership. When the cow and bull are not in the same recorded ownership, Rule 6 below applies. Rule 6. OUT-OF-HERD CALVES BY NON-OWNED SIRES: All sires used in AI service must be DNA profiled. Bulls that are DNA profiled after January 1, 1986, must also have both parents’ DNA profiles on file with AHA to qualify for Non-Owner AI Certificates. A DNA profile may be obtained by sending the appropriate hair samples to AHA’s official DNA lab for processing. DNA profiles from eligible animals, which originate in the official DNA lab of other Hereford associations, will be accepted for processing by AHA. Those sires for which a parent is not available for DNA profiling may only be used for AI service in the herds of the recorded owners, unless such bulls qualify for analysis to provide a derived type for the dead parent. (Contact AHA for further information on this special ruling.) The following requirements shall apply to register calves conceived artificially when the recorded owner of the female is


not the recorded owner or one of the recorded owners of the sire at the time of conception:

“Breeding Share Agreement,” they can be individually invoiced for AI certificates when calves are registered.

Option A:

Rule 10. SEMEN DONATIONS TO COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES: The Association will make donated AI Certificates of Service available for use by colleges or universities when a breeder makes a donation of semen from a qualified bull. The semen certificates will be issued to the college or university at no cost to the breeder. The following rules must be complied with: • The semen must be a donation to the college or university. • The breeder must apply for the donation certificates in the form of a letter to AHA indicating the institution to which the donation is made. • The bull must qualify under the current rules for NonOwner AI Certificates of Service. • The certificates and semen must be used by the institution that received the donation. Applications for registry from any other party will not be accepted. • Upon approval by the Association, donated AI Certificates of Service will be issued directly to the college or university.

• A bull may enter the Non-Owner AI Sire Program, which allows the owner(s) of a bull to sell semen without the need of an AI certificate for registration of the offspring of the bull. Calves born on or after December 1, 2006, are eligible for registry under this program. • For a bull to be entered into this program, an agreement must be signed by all owners of the bull and kept on file at the AHA. If the bull is owned by a syndicate, the owners listed on the certificate will need to sign the agreement along with the designated representative of the syndicate. • For a bull to be entered into this program, he must have an AI permit issued (see Rule 2). • There is a one-time fee of $100 to enter a bull into this program. Once a bull is entered into the program, he will not be allowed to switch back to the certificate program (Option B).

Option B:

• The breeder (recorded owner of the female at time of conception) must obtain a Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service for each calf to be recorded from the individual or firm supplying the semen and such certificates must accompany the application for registration of the resulting offspring. • The recorded owner of the bull from which the semen was sold is obligated to supply the number of Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service contracted for at the time the semen was purchased. • Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service may be obtained from the Association by active members of the Association who are the recorded owner or co-owners of the bull at a fee established by the Board of Directors.It is the responsibility of the owner of the dam at the time of service to complete the Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service.

Rule 7. LIMITATIONS: The Board may cancel the Non-Owner AI Permit for any bull which has been scientifically documented as being a carrier of a deleterious gene which produces an economically important genetic defect in his calves. Rule 8. LIMITATIONS: The Board may restrict or limit the number of Non-Owner AI Certificates for an individual bull if, in the judgement of the Board and based on scientific information, such bull is being used so excessively as to cause irreparable damage to the breed’s genetic base. Rule 9. NON-OWNER SEMEN CERTIFICATE ALLOCATION FOR MULTI-OWNER SIRES: To obtain AI Certificates from a multi-owned sire, one must be a recorded owner or co-owner of the sire. Certificates will be issued on request to any recorded owner. Contractual agreements regarding certificate privileges among multi-owners are the responsibility of those owners. In the instance where a recorded owner of the sire is a multi-owner group, it is the responsibility of the owner group’s designated spokesman to handle the distribution of non-owner AI semen certificates. Individual members of the multi-owner group, not otherwise recorded as one of the four recorded owners of record of the sire, will be required to secure NonOwner AI Certificates of Service from a recorded owner in order to register offspring of the sire from their recorded dams. The American Hereford Association (AHA) will provide a service whereby an AHA member can participate in a “Breeding Share Agreement” for bulls. When members participate in a

Rule 11. LIABILITY: The issuance of Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service by the Association should in no way be construed as guaranteeing conception or that the resulting calf shall be eligible for registration. There shall be no refunding of fees paid to the Association for these certificates.

SECTION VI: IMPORTING OF REGISTERED HEREFORDS

Rule 1. EXPORT CERTIFICATE: Registration of an animal originally recorded in the Herd Book of a member of the World Hereford Council shall be accepted only if a registry certificate is issued by the recognized registry organization of the country of origin. Rule 2. APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION: Registration may be applied for within one year by the breeder importing an animal originally recorded in the Herd Book of another member of the World Hereford Council and whose name appears as purchaser on the export certificate. The registry fee must accompany the request for registration. Rule 3. REGISTRATION OF CALVES IMPORTED IN DAM: If a cow was bred prior to importation and a record of service does not appear on the export certificate, the owner of the sire on the date of service must certify to the particulars of service through the recognized registry organization of the country of origin. When the imported cow was bred by artificial insemination, there must be on file with the recognized registry organization in the county of origin a blood type or DNA profile of the service sire. When the imported dam was bred artificially by a bull owned by a breeder in the U.S. and where no semen interest is owned by the breeder in the exporting country, a Non-Owner AI Certificate of Service must accompany the application for registry of the resulting progeny. Rule 4. REGISTRATION OF CALVES IMPORTED AT SIDE: Registration of a calf imported at side of its dam shall be accepted only if the calf is also registered in the same recognized registry organization and a registry certificate has been received by the American Hereford Association (AHA). Rule 5. SEMEN INTEREST IN A BULL DOMICILED IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY: To use semen or to sell Non-Owner AI Certificates of Service, the bull must be recorded in the American Hereford Record by a member (either a member 2019 Hereford Handbook / 29


AHA Rules and Regulations continued

residing in the U.S. or non-resident dues paying member) of the American Hereford Association. All DNA profile rules apply. Rule 6. REGISTRATION OF CALVES RESULTING FROM EGGS IMPORTED FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY will require a DNA profile match of the subject animal, the sire and the dam on file with the Association.

SECTION VII: DNA PROFILING

Rule 1. DNA PROFILING: Over a period of years a vast amount of technical information has become available and DNA profiling is now a useful tool for Association members. DNA has been proven to be more accurate than blood type in proving parentage. Applying for the DNA profile of an animal requires a request to AHA for a DNA profile kit for each animal to be tested. The request must include the name and registry number of the animal to be tested. The kit will contain all the necessary instructions for securing a hair sample and the shipping instructions to send the sample to the designated AHA laboratory. Hair is the tissue sample of choice for the DNA profile. When pulling hair, it is best to pull at least 80 hairs from a clean area above the switch. The hair must have a visible follicle attached at the base of the root in order to produce enough DNA for validation. Rule 2. AI SIRES: The rules of the Association require all sires of calves conceived artificially to be DNA profiled before their calves are eligible for registration. It is wise to have all herd bulls hair sampled early in life to make sure that the semen can be used after their death. Rule 3. DNA PARENTAGE VERIFICATION OF AI AND ET BORN CALVES: Starting December 1, 2006, the AHA will parentage verify every 250th calf registered with a service type of artificial insemination (AI) or embryo transfer (ET). If a calf is selected for verification under this program, the registration of the calf will be held until the parentage verification is complete. If the calf is from a mating of an AI sire and its dam is not available for sampling, the next calf registered will be selected without interruption of registration. The AHA will assume the DNA lab cost of parentage verification of the calf and DNA profile work on the dam (if required). Rule 4. ALL ANIMALS: A. The Association may require that any animal which has been registered by the Association be subjected to a DNA profile test to verify breed purity and accuracy of the recorded parentage. The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors or the Board of Directors or the Executive Vice President may require that a DNA profile be made, by such agencies as it or he may designate, of any Hereford animal which has been alleged to have been incorrectly recorded or for any animal for which tissue analysis is deemed advisable. It shall be the duty of the owner of record of any animal in question and the owner of record of the purported sire and dam to afford the Association or its representatives reasonable opportunity to secure DNA samples from the animals involved in the investigation. The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors is empowered to determine who shall pay the costs of any investigation, including laboratory fees assessed under the provisions of this rule. B. Prior to the filing of an entry application for any animal with respect to which a DNA profile is not on file with the Association, the Association may require the owner of said animal, at the 30 / 2019 Hereford Handbook

owner’s cost, to provide a DNA sample for such animal to the Association’s designated laboratory and to provide a DNA profile to the Association from the Association’s designated laboratory. At any Hereford competition, the owner of any animal that wins such competition shall, promptly after the announcement that such animal has won such competition, permit the Association to secure a DNA sample from such animal. C. If, at any time, the Association is in possession of two (2) or more DNA profiles allegedly from the same animal that do not match, including the winner in any Hereford competition, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee may require the Executive Vice President to undertake such investigation as the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee deems appropriate, and, upon the conclusion of such investigation, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article XI of the Bylaws, including without limitation the forfeiture of any prizes including any monetary awards or ribbons awarded to such animal at such competition, the suspension of the registration of the animal in question, the suspension of the owner’s membership or the revocation of the owner’s membership. Any such investigation may include requiring any owner to permit the Association to secure another DNA sample from such animal. Rule 5. REFUSAL: If the owner of record shall refuse reasonable opportunity to the Association or its designated agents to secure DNA samples as set forth in Rule 3 of this Section, the Board of Directors or the Executive Committee of the Board may take such actions and impose such sanctions as it deems appropriate as provided in Article IX of the Bylaws, including without limitation the suspension of the registration of the animal in question. Rule 6. NON-REGISTERED ANIMALS: The Association may collect and maintain DNA profiles on animals other than registered animals. The Association may, from time to time, compare the DNA profiles of registered animals and the DNA profiles of animals with respect to which applications for registration have been submitted with the DNA profiles of nonregistered animals. The Association may deny registration to, or revoke the registration of, any animal based on this comparison.

SECTION VIII: RULES REGARDING CLONES

Rule 1. ONLY REPLICATION CELL-CLONED animals shall be eligible for registration. Rule 2. THE CELL DONOR animal must be DNA-marker typed. Rule 3. THE BREEDER of the cell-donor animal must be identified as the breeder of the cell-cloned offspring. Rule 4. THE OWNER OF RECORD of the cell-donor, on the date of biopsy removal, will be identified as the first owner, unless the calf is the result of a pregnant recipient, purchased embryo — fresh or frozen — in which case the purchaser may be identified as the first owner. Rule 5. DNA MARKER typing of the cell-cloned animal, or recipient dams, may be required by the Association. Rule 6. CALVES CONCEIVED AFTER DEATH of celldonor animals shall be eligible for registration under the same conditions and provisions governing the eligibility of calves prior to the death of said animal.


Rule 7. REGISTRATION OF CELL-CLONED transplants shall be made on a special form, provided by the Association, at the regular fee, plus an additional fee as determined by the Board of Directors. Rule 8. REGISTRATION CERTIFICATES issued for cell-cloned transplants shall be so designated. The registration number of the animal, which is being cell-cloned shall also be stated on the registration certificate. Rule 9. NOTHING SET FORTH herein should be construed as an indication that the Association takes any position as to the ownership rights, if any, of retained cell material. That is a separate matter reserved for discussion and/or negotiation between the buyer and seller. Rule 10. INITIAL BREEDING VALUES – EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCES (EPDs) generated from National Cattle Evaluation for a cloned animal shall be the same values as the cell-donor animal. All data of future progeny from a cloned animal will be pooled with the cell-donor progeny data for genetic evaluation. SECTION IX: GENETIC DEFECT POLICY Procedures for collecting abnormality data and reporting the information to the AHA membership: Physical and functional abnormalities are present in all breeds of cattle. In order to monitor abnormalities in Hereford cattle, the American Hereford Association requests the collection of abnormality information from AHA members on a voluntary basis. Specialist, Dr. David Steffen, veterinarian for the University of Nebraska Veterinary and Biomedical Science Department, has worked closely with many breeds in the area of genetic abnormalities. The AHA will be working with him to diagnose abnormalities as being genetic or non-genetic in origin. Not all abnormalities are genetic in origin. Some defects can be attributed to sickness or nutrition. Dr. Steffen works to determine the root cause of the defect. All AHA members are invited to read the procedures for reporting genetic abnormalities. A. Reporting Physical Abnormalities to AHA Any AHA member who becomes aware of a possible physical or functional abnormality in an AHA-registered animal shall immediately notify the AHA Director of Breed Improvement at 816-842-3757. Upon receiving notification of a possible physical functional abnormality, the AHA Records Department will take the following steps to confirm the abnormality and determine if it is genetic in origin: • Provide the member with an abnormality report form, which the member shall promptly complete and return to the AHA: • Provide the member with instructions for collecting and submitting for analysis as deemed appropriate blood and tissue samples from the animal in question. The reporting member shall promptly comply with all AHA instructions regarding the gathering and submission of tissue and blood samples. B. AHA Genetic Consultant The AHA will refer confirmed physical abnormalities to a genetic consultant for analysis. The genetic consultant shall be chosen by the AHA Board. Currently the genetic consultant is David Steffen, DVM PhD, from the University of Nebraska. The AHA genetic consultant is responsible for determining if sufficient evidence exists to establish a definite cause of a particular physical abnormality. All AHA members shall cooperate fully in any investigation necessary to such determination. The genetic consultant will advise the Board of diagnostic criteria for established genetic diseases and will evaluate evidence to determine if diagnostic criteria are met. Dr. Steffen

will perform these evaluations as a pathologist for the Nebraska University Diagnostic Center. C. Notification to Owners of Affected Animals and Owners of Parents of Affected Animals Once a physical abnormality has been confirmed and parentage has been verified, all owners of record of the abnormal animal and owners of record of the parents of the abnormal animal will receive the following information from the AHA: • A description of the physical abnormality in question. • The recorded sire and dam of the abnormal animal. • Whether as a preliminary matter the abnormality appears to be genetic in origin. • If the abnormality appears to be genetic, what steps are planned to determine whether the parents of the abnormal animal are carriers of the physical abnormality. D. Notification to AHA Membership Upon confirmation that an AHA-registered animal has either (i) produced a sufficient number of abnormal progeny (at least two confirmed, parent-identified cases) such that there is a high likelihood that such animal is a carrier of a genetic defect, or (ii) been the subject of positive DNA test (See Section E) that indicates that such animal is a carrier of a genetic defect, the AHA will immediately notify by certified mail the owners of record of the confirmed carrier of the AHA’s intent to designate their animal as a confirmed carrier of a genetic defect. In addition, the AHA will immediately add a special code to the animal’s registration to indicate this fact. An animal that has been designated as a confirmed carrier of a genetic abnormality shall be immediately placed on a confirmed carrier list, which will be disseminated on the AHA website and which will be available upon request. Any AHA member who may be aggrieved by the AHA’s designation of a particular animal as a confirmed carrier of a genetic defect may file a complaint with the AHA Executive Committee within thirty (30) days after the mailing of the certified letter. The filing of such a complaint will not stay the confirmed carrier designation. The complaint shall be heard and disposed of by the Executive Committee in accordance with the procedures set forth in Article XI of AHA’s Bylaws. In the event that a complaint has not been filed within thirty (30) days after the mailing of the certified letter, the confirmed carrier designation will become final. In the event that the complaint results in a final unappealable determination that the subject animal is not a confirmed carrier of a genetic defect, AHA will immediately remove the special code from the animal’s registration. In addition, such animal shall be immediately removed from the confirmed carrier list. The AHA will not give notice of confirmed or suspected genetic abnormalities with respect to any particular animal to any AHA member or to any owners of related AHA-registered animals except as specifically set out in these rules. The foregoing shall not prohibit AHA from giving the members notice of, and general information concerning, a genetic abnormality so long as no particular animal is referred to in connection with such information. Any other notification is the sole responsibility of the owner(s) of the confirmed or suspected carrier parent. E. DNA Genetic Abnormality Testing In the case the AHA identifies a gene marker test for a genetic abnormality, animals may be tested to determine carrier status by an AHA approved laboratory. If breeders wish to officially confirm an animal free of a genetic abnormality and designate it as such on the animal’s pedigree, then the following guidelines must be met: • The breeder must request the DNA test kit from the AHA Records Department. • The results of the test must be returned directly to AHA from the official lab. 2019 Hereford Handbook / 31

Classification of Genetic Abnormalities The AHA currently recognizes the following physical abnormalities that have been confirmed by its genetic consultant to be genetic in origin under certain circumstances: • CLASS I (LETHAL) Snorter Dwarfism Maple Syrup Urine Disease (Neuraxial Edema) Internal Hydrocephalus Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE) • CLASS II (NON-LETHAL) Hypotrichosis Dermoid Alopecia/Dyserythropoiesis Color Dilutor G. Description of Defects • CLASS I (LETHAL) Snorter Dwarfism – Symptoms: Undersized, short-legged, short-bodied animal, usually potbellied with noisy breathing. Several different types include a broad-headed, bulging forehead and a longand mature-headed kind. X-ray of 10-day-old dwarfs may show abnormal lumbar vertebrae. Most cases are simple autosomal recessive; some forms are incomplete dominance. – Confirmation: Pathologic exam Maple Syrup Urine Disease (Neuraxial Edema) – Symptoms: Calves will be of normal size at birth. May not be able to get up or lift head. A sudden touch or loud noise may cause a vigorous extension of the legs and neck. Contraction (muscle spasms) may last one or two minutes and can be made to reappear. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Histopath of nervous tissue or biochemical test Internal Hydrocephalus (water head) – Symptoms: Excess fluid is present in the brain which may result in a bulging forehead. Calves are usually born dead or die shortly after birth. Some cases may be environmental. Needs careful diagnosis. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Gross pathologic exam Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE) – Symptoms: Age of onset (occurrence of the first seizure) can be variable, ranging from birth to several months of age. Occurrence and persistence of seizures may be influenced by environmental stressors such as temperature extremes (e.g., extreme cold during calving) or increased physical activity (e.g., processing at vaccination or weaning). Upon initial onset of seizure episodes individuals will typically lie on their side with all limbs extended in a rigid state. Manual flexing of the limbs is possible, but return to the extended position occurs after release. Seizure episodes may last from several minutes to more than an hour. Autosomal recessive. – No anatomic abnormalities or histologic lesions detected. – Confirmation: AHA approved expert • CLASS II (NON-LETHAL) Hypotrichosis (hairlessness) – Symptoms: Partial to almost complete lack of hair. Affected calves are often born with very short, fine, kinky hair that may fall out leaving bare spots or areas particularly susceptible to rubbing. The condition may vary in expression as the animal matures and is usually less noticeable in older animals. The haircoat color will sometimes appear “frosted” or “silverish.” Tail switch may be underdeveloped. Simple autosomal recessive. – Confirmation: Megatrichohyaline granule skin biopsy 32 / 2019 Hereford Handbook

Dermoid (feather eyes) – Symptoms: Skin-like masses of tissue occur on the eye or eyelid. Animals may become partially or completely blind. Polygenic inheritance. – Confirmation: Clinical diagnosis with photos or biopsy Alopecia/Anemia, Dyserythropoiesis – Symptoms: Short, curly hair, hair loss on neck and shoulder. Progressive generalized hair loss. White areas appear dirty and calves are anemic. – Confirmation: Blood test for anemia plus skin biopsy Color Dilutor – Symptoms: Carrier Hereford bulls or females when mated to black cattle can produce offspring with a haircoat that is gray, smokey or chocolate color. – Confirmation: Clinical diagnosis with photos H. Lethal vs. Non-Lethal A lethal genetic abnormality is a genetic abnormality which usually results in death of the animal or production of the animal is significantly impaired causing major economic loss. Non-lethal abnormalities do not cause death, nor do they significantly affect production or commercial profitability. Nonlethals may, however, cause economic loss to seedstock producers. I. Breeding to Avoid Abnormalities Breeders that may have a problem with a simple recessive abnormality can make use of available DNA-based diagnostic tests or implement mating systems designed to reduce the frequency of the abnormal gene in their herds and the breed. Where a DNA-based test is available, breeders can directly test animals for the presence of a specific mutation causing the disease. Animals confirmed to be carriers should be used cautiously, and serious consideration should be given to their removal from the seedstock breeding herd. However, breeders should guard against carelessly throwing away good genetics because a sire or dam is a carrier unless that animal’s good characteristics remain available in the breed from another source. In the absence of a DNA-based test, mating systems should rely on the use of bulls known not to have produced affected calves. Sons of carrier animals can be used if they have been tested free of the abnormality through a series of special test matings. Mating a bull to seven affected females, 17 carrier cows or 35 of his own daughters with no abnormal offspring provides three ways to test for the presence of a recessive gene. With specific regard to non-lethal abnormalities, each breeder must assess the potential economic impact the abnormality may have on his operation. J. Predicted Outcome of Certain Matings Using Hypotrichosis as an Example Hypotrichosis (non-lethal) results from homozygosity of a simple autosomal recessive gene. This means that both parents must possess the hypotrichosis gene in order to produce an affected calf. Approximately 25 percent of the calves resulting from the mating of two carrier animals will be affected, while 50 percent will be normal appearing but carriers of hypotrichosis, and the remaining 25 percent will be normal and non-carriers. Possible matings and the predicted outcomes are shown in the table below: Affected Unaffected Unaffected Normal Matings1 Hypotrichosis Carrier hh × hh hh × Hh hh × HH Hh × Hh Hh × HH HH × HH

CHEZ/PUGH/HARA LOGIC 8815F ET Sire: CRR 719 Catapult 109  Dam: R Sweet Red Wine 039  DOB: 2-23-18  Polled THE CLEAR AND SIMPLE CHOICE!

CE 2.8

One of the most talked about bulls in Denver! This calf will really demand your attention. Several astute cowboys referred to Logic as the best polled calf in the barn this year. His breed dam, Sweet Red Wine, has generated in excess of $2,000,000 in actual progeny sales. Logic checks a lot of boxes polled, short marked, moderate birth weight, good haired, power dam and super cool made! He is perfect footed, big boned, stout made and wide all the way to the ground. He offers a pretty made, small head with a long neck that ties beautifully into his shoulder. And for as much power that he possesses, he still maintains that super smooth look with structural integrity to make those elite functional females and power herd bulls.
