World’s Perspective

A Personal Touch

by Diane Meyer

Beef producers face a unique challenge to connect directly with consumers despite multiple phases of disconnect.

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

May is Beef Month, and the American Hereford Association commends Hereford breeders and cattle producers for their diligence in raising the best beef in the world. The May/June issue of the Hereford World celebrates the success of the Certified Hereford Beef® (CHB) program, beginning with the CHB Sires of Distinction on Page 38. As described by the Lafavers family on Page 44 and Cargill and US Foods Dallas® representatives on Page 50, consumers disconnected from agriculture crave connection with their food. In this issue, a story on how Herefords are marketed and sold in the Northeast (Page 74) draws parallels to my sixweek “farmstay” on a Northeastern pig farm. Except, instead of working in the northeastern U.S., I was in northeastern Australia. Therefore, this month I will share an experience from the other side of the world — a true “world’s perspective.”

Share your story The Beattie family’s free-range hog operation was only a year old when I came on board, and production had been cut from about 40 to 20 sows due to legal battles with neighbors concerned about property values. I quickly found my place helping my host dad, Shane, and host grandpa, John, with the daily chores. We sold pork directly to customers at local farmers markets on weekends, where bacon was always a favorite. With limited numbers of live animals and a demand for individual cuts, pigs were finished at around 60 kilograms (132 pounds). John and I hauled them in the back of the “yute” to the abattoir and, with the help of a local butcher shop, Shane and I prepared cuts to sell at upcoming markets. We had quite a loyal following at the markets. The key to building a strong customer base was through sharing the story of the farm — customers enjoyed pictures of pigs wallowing in the paddocks and loved photos of the family interacting

| May/June 2019

with the pigs. Shane would share pictures of his daughters, Leilani and Sophie, holding piglets and people absolutely ate it up. For customers without a tie to agriculture, a glimpse into the family’s livelihood served as the only medium for them to connect with the product.

Find common ground Consumers are confronted with negative messages about beef, namely that the industry is unethical and unsustainable. Although nationwide efforts — like sharing the “upcycling” power of beef (Page 66) — are in place to quell fears, consumers need personal reassurance products they purchase are safe. I was terrified of what lay ahead when I saw the coastline of Australia appear in the window of that Boeing 787. But fears of the unknown dissipated as I bonded with my host family over our shared values. As I write this, I’m reminded of snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, bungy jumping in the Kuranda rainforest and skydiving over Cairns. Yet the heartfelt experiences that made the trip unforgettable are those of celebrating family milestones with the Beatties — like Leilani catching her first fish, my host mum announcing she was expecting their third girl and throwing a surprise 60th birthday party for my host grandma. People connect with people. Whether beef is sold at a farmers market in Connecticut, a BBQ joint in Texas or an Everyday IGA retailer in Montana, marketing efforts require a personal touch. Connections form not because a few differences exist but because a few strong similarities exist. At that point, differences in lifestyles are irrelevant. When it comes to marketing beef, be mindful of sharing relatable, reassuring values. A personal flare can make a difference in what brands consumers choose to serve their family. And remember, nothing is more universally understood than a genuine smile. Hereford.org

Breed Focus

Numbers Talk

by Jack Ward

Learn how profit indices can help you in sire selection this spring. In 2007 the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors initiated a program to recognize Hereford sires with strong traits associated with end-product merit. The Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) Sire of Distinction designation is given to those sires that rank in the top 25 percent of the breed for the CHB index (CHB$) and have a minimum accuracy of 0.25 for both ribeye area (REA) and marbling (MARB) expected progeny differences (EPDs). CHB$ is a terminal sire index built on a production system where Hereford bulls are mated to mature commercial Angus cows, and all progeny are targeted for Certified Hereford Beef Ž after the finishing phase. This index emphasizes carcass weight (CW) to ensure profit on the rail. As well, there is a positive weighting on average daily gain (ADG) and a negative weighting on dry matter intake (DMI) 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 to allow for optimum end-product merit. This is the only index that does not emphasize fertility — remember, no replacement heifers are being retained.

you may have CW and MARB in check with your cow herd, and DMI is the trait that needs attention. Indices have been developed over the years by breed associations and other entities — most have been developed on a breed-wide basis. These generalized indices are appropriate whenever breeding objectives are consistent across large segments of an animal population. Even though a dollar value may not reach reality at the ranch level, the ranking of the sires will still be strong and that is generally more important than the values themselves. Just find the good ones. More than 20 years ago, my longtime friend, Roy Wallace of Select Sires explained how he used an index when selecting sires. At the time the math was simple, and the number of traits was not as robust. He selected bulls by identifying the traits of interest, then adding the percentile rank of all those traits and dividing by the number of traits. The lower the number, the better he liked the sire. He then looked at the bulls to ensure he preferred them on paper and that their structure fit his criteria. I utilized this math in my selection for many years, and because of this approach never overemphasized a single trait and stayed within a boundary for traits of economic relevance.

Indices work

Hereford Advantage program

Sire selection can be a very difficult process. More than one trait can affect profitability, and in the past the beef industry focused on output without any thought toward inputs. Indices have helped producers understand more is not always better and have kept them from over emphasizing a single trait. On the AHA website, a producer selecting for CHB$ can find sires that qualify for the CHB Sire of Distinction and then sort them by the trait of interest. For example, breeders committed to MARB can sort bulls from best to worse according to MARB. Or,

In addition to the CHB Sire of Distinction recognition, the AHA developed a marketing program for breeders to utilize for their customers who purchase bulls that excel for CHB$. The Hereford Advantage program allows producers to market feeder cattle sired by a group of bulls whose average CHB$ number is in the top 50 percent of the breed. This program serves to identify bulls that can add feedlot and end-product merit to a commercial cow herd. These programs provide a great opportunity to interact with your customers to develop a selection strategy committed to profitability.

Board Action

Spring Board Meeting Highlights

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met in Kansas City, Mo., April 2-3. The following are highlights of the meeting:

Finance and audit Joe Waggoner, committee chairman, led discussion and reported the committee met by conference call on March 29, 2019, to review the AHA financials. He then introduced David Kuebelbeck, United Missouri Bank (UMB) portfolio manager, and Brande Anderson, UMB institutional investment management relationship manager, to discuss the current AHA investment policy and the performance of AHA reserves. Kuebelbeck reported AHA investments are allocated within policy, and through the first three months of 2019, the markets have performed well. A motion was made and passed unanimously to host the 2024 World Hereford Conference.

Show and sale Bruce Thomas, committee chairman, shared the committee held a conference call to discuss the national show judges. He presented the following slate of judges for the 2019-20 national shows:

Keystone International Livestock Exposition: Billy Elmhirst, Canada

American Royal: Jirl Buck, Okla.

North American International Livestock Exposition: Dave Duello, Wyo.

Western States Hereford Show: TBD

National Western Stock Show: Cody Lowderman, Ill., Hill judge; Graham Blagg, Kan., junior judge; Brent Meeks, Neb., pen and carload judge; Brent Mrnak, N.D., pen and carload judge; and third judge, TBD

Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo: Jason Hoffman, Neb.

The Board voted unanimously to support the slate of judges as presented. The Board also voted unanimously to weigh heifers at the North American International Livestock Exposition and to have Joe Goggins as the auctioneer of the 2020 Mile High Night Sale.

Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) Tommy Mead, committee chairman, led discussion and the Board was given an update on the progress of “Herefords on Demand” by HPI staff.

Breed improvement Joel Birdwell, committee chairman, led discussion with the Board and

shared the committee had met by conference call. He reported Argentina and Uruguay have voted to move ahead with Pan-American Cattle Evaluation (PACE) utilizing Biometric Open Language Tools (BOLT). Research will be done by Theta Solutions. An update was given on the progress of testing for Maple Syrup Urine Disease. The lab has started returning results, and breeders have aggressively started testing. A motion was made and unanimously supported for the staff to explore the opportunities with GeneProb, a software program designed by the Agriculture Business Research Institute (ABRI), to look at the probability of an animal being a carrier for any type of genetic issue.

Certified Hereford Beef LLC The Certified Hereford Beef ® staff reported that changes to Certified Hereford Beef carcass specs have been well received by customers, and new business has been added to both retail and foodservice. Certified Hereford Beef staff also updated the Board that the new grid, developed by National Beef Packing Co., has also been added to the US Premium Beef grid. In addition, the staff shared some of the marketing assets developed for licensed customers.

Marketing and communications Kyle Pérez, committee chairman, reported the committee had met by conference call and had reviewed the social media statistics. He also presented the agenda for the “The Brand” Marketing Summit. Eric Grant, Grant Company, then joined the Board to discuss national marketing and communications opportunities.

Performance Matters

Standing Strong

by Shane Bedwell

Learn the latest on Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) and the Beef Improvement Federation conference. Happy beef month. I have to say I’m looking forward to some warmer weather and getting the grill out to enjoy a great Certified Hereford Beef ® steak. Last month I commented on the toughness of the winter, and unfortunately, the start of the spring for some has not offered much reprieve. I definitely feel for all of you who have endured the hardships of Mother Nature, and I also know Hereford breeders are resilient and will bounce back. 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.

| May/June 2019

MSUD update As a follow-up to last month’s article regarding Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), I hope you have found the defect carriers report helpful in identifying animals that may warrant testing in your herd. It is important to periodically check back and rerun this report as newly tested animals are identified either as MSUD Free (MSUDF) or as a MSUD Carrier (MSUDC). I will say several hundred animals have been submitted to be retested, which has further aided in understanding this abnormality. The standalone MSUD test will be available to breeders until Aug. 31, 2019, and applies only to animals with a current genotype at the lab. To order a standalone MSUD test, contact American Hereford Association (AHA) Customer Service at 816-842-3757. All newly genotyped animals will automatically receive the results for MSUD because the AHA has upgraded to a high-density genotype panel. This detailed genotype panel will be instrumental in continued

research efforts and in discovering marker effects of both established traits and potential new novel traits. As science progresses, the profile of this genotype panel will develop with additional marker content which, in turn, will allow for further genomic advancement. Even with this cutting-edge panel, it is important to collect and measure all phenotypic traits to allow the AHA’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program to move forward with the same strength it has today. Producers must never lose sight of the value of collecting these phenotypes. Having both the phenotypic measures and the genomic enhancement records for an animal improves the quality of the breed’s genetic prediction and, most importantly, increases the level of accuracy associated with the traits of interest.

You are invited Finally, I would like to invite everyone to attend the 2019 Beef Improvement Federation Annual Meeting and Research Symposium. This year’s meeting will be held in Brookings, S.D., and is sure to be a great conference. For registration information and a schedule of the conference, visit BeefImprovment.org. A strong Hereford presence at this event is important as new ideas and thoughts are exchanged regarding performance programs. Additionally, breeders have a lot to be proud of when it comes to the level of advancement being made in herds across the country. Meeting dates are June 18-21, and I hope you can find time to attend the meetings.

AHA election process Each year three American Hereford Association (AHA) Directors retire from the Board and three new Directors are elected to succeed them. The election procedure is a multi-step process. 1) Nomination of board candidates – The AHA Board of Directors executive committee selects a five-member nominating committee at-large. According to Section 3(a) of Article VI of the AHA Bylaws that were amended Oct. 29, 2015, the nominating committee shall nominate no less than three nor more than six candidates for election as Directors of the Association, each of whom shall be an active member or a representative of an active member at the time of nomination, and shall submit the names of those candidates to delegates at the meeting of delegates. In addition, any delegate present in person may nominate any active member (including himself or herself) or any representative of an active member as a candidate for Director at the meeting of delegates.

2) Election of voting delegates – Each state elects voting delegates to attend the AHA Annual Meeting in Kansas City, Mo., to vote on the slate of nominees. Each state is entitled to one delegate for every 750 Hereford registrations recorded from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2018. A state must have a minimum of 375 registrations to be entitled to one delegate. If the number of registrations exceeds 750 or any multiple thereof by 375 or more, the state will be entitled to an additional delegate or delegates.

Voting quadrants for AHA Board of Directors

3) State election of voting delegates – In late April, delegate nomination postcards are mailed to all AHA members. Replies must be postmarked by June 1. Each active member is asked to nominate one state candidate to be elected to serve as a delegate to the AHA Annual Meeting. An active member is defined as a member that registered at least one animal in the calendar year preceding the year of the election. A state delegate ballot will be sent to each active member to vote from a list of state nominees. Each active member will vote for the entitled number of state delegates. Each state is entitled to a number of delegates based on registration count and membership count in the previous year’s registration period. A minimum of 375 registrations is required for the first delegate, and then for every 750 registrations thereafter an additional delegate is added. In addition, each state is allocated a delegate for the first 25 members and an additional delegate for every 100 members thereafter.

Weighted votes Each member delegate vote will be weighted based on the individual’s registrations as follows: Number of registrations Weighted votes 1-20 21-50 51-100 101-200 More than 200

1 6 15 30 60

Principle place of doing business Each active member must vote in the state that is his or her principle place of doing Hereford business, i.e. ranch or farm address must be in the same state in which he or she is voting.

Election schedule

The U.S. is divided into four regions of representation, and each region will have at least one director. Hereford.org

MyHerd: Tips, Tricks and Tools

by Laura Loschke

With the revamp of MyHerd, the American Hereford Association (AHA) has been able to provide many new, helpful tools for members to access at their fingertips. With to-do lists filled with registrations and transfers, it is easy to forget about the innovative tools available through MyHerd.

Featured tools AI certificates This great tool provides a list of available artificial insemination (AI) certificates. At any time users can log into their MyHerd account, hover over the “Herd Details” tab and select “AI Certs Available.” This list will reveal any available AI certificates in the account. It also includes the bull’s name and registration number and the number of certificates for that particular bull. Personal list Another helpful feature of MyHerd is the “Personal List.” Found in the “Actions” menu, this list shows whom the user has done business with in the last three years and includes the name of the operation and/or business owner, a full address, a phone number and an email address — if available. This list can be saved and downloaded.

Click on the corresponding button to renew the membership dues and/or bill the member service fee. If you cannot click on the account, then all dues are up-to-date. Potential defect carriers Another great tool within MyHerd is the ability to run a potential defects carrier report. To run this, hover over the “Jobs & Reports” menu tab and then select “Submit a Job.” On the “Make a Report” screen, select “Potential Defect Carriers” from the drop-down menu. The next screen offers the

ability to run the report based on an inventory year, a calf crop year or a specific animal’s ID. Once the report is completed, it can be viewed on the “View Reports & CSVs” option under the “Jobs & Reports” menu. Search for animals/members Remember, users have access to the expected progeny difference (EPD) and animal search function through MyHerd as well. Simply hover over the “Links” menu tab, and then select “EPD Enquiry.” This action will take the user to the enhanced screen to search for animals and/or members within the AHA database. As always, if you are having problems navigating through MyHerd, view the MyHerd help pages or call customer service at 816-842-3757.

CHB Bites

New Twists, Same Tradition

by Kaylen Alexander

“CHB Bites” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) program. To get involved with CHB on social media, search Certified Hereford Beef on Facebook and Pinterest, @certifiedherefordbeef on Instagram and @crtherefordbeef on Twitter.

National Beef Packing Co. expands its Certified Hereford Beef line with new product offering National Beef Packing Co. is exhibiting its dedication to the Certified Hereford Beef brand by expanding its product line under the CHB label. National Beef recently launched Certified Hereford Beef fresh patties — an 80/20 blend of freshly ground chuck that creates an exceptional burgereating experience. The patties come in three sizes — 4 ozs., 5.33 ozs. and 8 ozs. — to cater to a variety of restaurant operations. “National Beef is dedicated to the success of the Certified Hereford Beef brand,” says Wes Steimel, National Beef branded-beef business manager. “It is important to offer our customers a full product mix, and incorporating the Certified Hereford Beef fresh patties in our product offering gives our customers another option to provide a high-quality beef product in their operations.” The fresh Certified Hereford Beef patties are a highly requested product in foodservice distribution and restaurant operations across the United States. “The industry is demanding high quality Certified Hereford Beef products and National Beef Packing has once again stepped up to the challenge in support of the brand,” says Amari Seiferman, Certified Hereford Beef president and CEO. “Together we are setting the bar on Hereford quality and providing the industry with a complete product offering that continues to make a positive impact for the Hereford breed.”

Big changes to come in Certified Hereford Beef® Cook-off contest at JNHE There will be a few changes to the Certified Hereford Beef Cook-off contest at the 2019 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) hosted in Denver, first beginning with the contest name. Formerly known as the Great American CHB Grill-off, the Certified Hereford Beef Cook-off contest will now open the kitchen for contestants to prepare their recipe using a variety of cooking methods, instead of the previous contest where participants could only utilize a grill to prepare their dish. Additionally, a greater emphasis will now be placed on the educational component of the contest. “We believe it is important for our young Hereford enthusiasts to better understand all facets of the beef industry, specifically the Certified Hereford Beef brand,” says Trey Befort, Certified Hereford Beef director of commercial programs. “This contest will take a deep dive into the beef packing industry and issues relevant to producers and consumers alike.” For the 2019 contest, each participant in the cook-off will be required both to have a speaking role and to answer one question from the judges. A comprehensive study guide will be available with study topics and links, courtesy of Certified Hereford Beef. The study guide can be found on the Certified Hereford Beef blog and in the JNHE

section of the Hereford.org website. For contestants wanting to get a head start on the competition, great topics and places to start studying include: • Certified Hereford Beef history • Certified Hereford Beef program specifications and requirements • Certified Hereford Beef restaurant and retail partners • Beef packing industry • Beef cuts education • Beef nutrition • Beef industry issues • U.S. Meat Export Industry Other contest changes include:

• The number of team members

per team will now be three to five, a change from the previous two to six team members per team. • Only two product options will be available from which junior members may choose. These products will be announced May 1. • The scoring rubric will be modified to place a greater emphasis on education. The adjusted scoring rubric includes: 50 points for knowledge, 30 points for the recipe and 20 points for showmanship, for a total of 100 points. • There will be no individual contest. The 2019 Certified Hereford Beef Cook-off is shaping up to be a great event! For more information on the contest changes and new guidelines, please visit Hereford.org/Youth/JNHE/ ContestsEducation/. Kaylen Alexander is the director of marketing and communications for Certified Hereford Beef. She can be reached at kalexander@hereford.org.

Youth Movement Reflections on an Incredible Journey

The Road Less Traveled by Nathan Hopkins

As I reflect on my time serving the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) as a board director, I always think of the great times and the memories made, but I also ponder how it all came to be. My journey to getting on the board involved similar inspiration and encouragement given to other “boardies” before and after me, but my actual process was quite different. Recalling a time in Madison, Wis., there was a “special election,”

Chairman Austin Matheny, austin.matheny61@gmail.com Vice chairman Brooke Hinojosa-Sidwell, brookehinojosa10@gmail.com Communications chair Taylor Belle Matheny, taylormatheny97@gmail.com Leadership chair Brandt Downing, downingshowcattle@gmail.com Fundraising chair Rylee Barber, ryraba@gmail.com Membership chair Nathan Hopkins, nhopkins3632@att.net Directors Brooklyn Adam, brooklynadam113@gmail.com Montana Lawrence, lawre474@morris.umn.edu Samuel Lawrence, slfittingservices@icloud.com Bailey Jones, baejones15@gmail.com Abigail Spindle, abigail.spindle1@gmail.com Hannah Williams, hmwilliams13@yahoo.com Director of youth activities Amy Cowan 816-842-3757, acowan@hereford.org JrHereford.org

| May/June 2019

as it was coined, for a second group of candidates vying for one position on the board. Such an election was needed because there were not enough candidates from the respective regions per the bylaws of the NJHA at the end of the original application deadline. As a result, a second deadline was established, and an aggressive campaign to recruit applicants was put in place. I was one of the candidates who made the second deadline, but that isn’t to say I just had my calendar dates wrong. I was very aware of the initial deadline — and had spent months preparing — but thought it best not to run. I had a deep passion for the Hereford breed and wanted to give back in some way, but doing so through the junior board meant I had to give speeches, get outside my comfort zone and even “politic” — all of which intimidated me. I’ll say I took the easy way out and did what was comfortable, which was nothing. It was then on a busy summer day I saw the need for junior board candidates announced on social media. When I saw the post, I knew I had been given a seldom to be had second chance. It sounds as if I had an epiphany, but I did have this realization that running for this position was something I needed to do. Prior to the initial deadline, I felt an uneasiness and was stressed about whether I was making the right decision. When the date passed, the worry vanished, and I joked about how I should have run and what type of candy I would have given out. With the fear of what lay ahead nonexistent, I was honest with others but, mainly, with myself.

The best yes I was given a second chance to make one of the best decisions of my life, but the same cannot be said for everyone else. Second chances are rare, and life is short, so I plead with anyone who will listen to forego the stress associated with taking risks and to trust themselves and their abilities. I don’t want to sound “preachy,” but I know people, especially juniors like me, need to hear this message. I feel it speaks volumes. It would be a farce to ignore the role encouragement played in my decision to run for the board. I always thought of running for the board, but it was first proposed by my brother and a former board member who felt I would be great. Following this proposal, my family, my state association and fellow breeders and exhibitors offered their encouragement. Gathering the recommendation letters was probably one of the most rewarding processes because each individual who wrote a letter instilled confidence I would feed off of during the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). I’ll brag on our Association because I have always felt the people are truly the best and offer encouragement like no other. With my time on the board, my assumptions have only been confirmed as I have been blessed to meet people from all over the country and beyond who share the same passion for Hereford cattle. I joined the board with the aim of contributing — which I have — but by serving, I have been rewarded more than I ever imagined at either the first or second deadline. Hereford.org


Hard Work Trumps All by Bailey Jones

“Hard work makes it happen.” That was my official campaign slogan and words to live by when I decided to run for the NJHA board of directors a second time. Being on the board was something I have strived for since my first JNHE in Milwaukee, Wis., when one of my biggest mentors, Nicole Starr, received her jacket. I was devastated the moment I did not receive a maroon jacket the first time I ran in 2015. I went back to my hotel room and contemplated not returning to the show the next day. However, I came back the next year ready to outwork everyone if I had to. Being on the board had been a dream of mine since I was 8 years old, and I was not going to let one little setback keep me from chasing it.

A year to remember The 2016 JNHE was in Madison, Wis., and I went up a few days early to help set up and get ready for trailers to arrive. I remember the whole week like it was yesterday, but the most vivid memory of the week was the night we got our jackets. We were seated in the coliseum for awards night, and I knew retiring directors were handing out the jackets throughout the ceremony. I sat and watched Austin and Brooke get their jackets and knew there was only one left. This was it. My dad had just received the Advisor of the Year award, and Taryn stepped up to say her farewell. I was sitting next to my best friends, squeezing their hands so tightly that I am surprised their hands did not fall off. Taryn’s speech went on forever as time seemed to slow to a halt. As she stepped down to hug her family, my stomach was in knots. I was sitting Hereford.org

near quite a few other candidates, so I did not want to get my hopes up when I saw her head our way up the stairs. I could feel my heart beating out of my chest as I waited. I lost track of her in the crowd as everyone was trying to see where she was headed and who would be the next to get the maroon jacket. All of a sudden, she stood in front of me. I could not believe it — was this just a dream? Tears of joy streamed down my face as I jumped up and hugged her. I remember the feeling as the cool jacket slid over my shoulders. As she headed back down, I remember looking for my family at the end of the row and locked eyes with my mom. I ran to hug her and could hardly hold myself up. We settled back into our seats to listen to the rest of the ceremony, but I did not hear much of what was said. It was all a blur. I was prepared for the work that lay ahead of us but was more excited for all of the memories we would make in these jackets. My predictions held true — the places we have been, the people we have met and the opportunities to give back to the association have meant so much to me over the years, that the work has never seemed like work. Thank you is a powerful phrase we, as a society, do not say often enough. There are so many people I would like to thank who have helped me along the way. First, to my mom and dad, thank you for believing in me and reminding me I can do anything I set my mind to. And for running back to the hotel for shoes or anything else I forgot to grab. Thank you, Brett, Riley, Lauren, Brady and Nick, for taking care of the cattle at all

hours of the day and for putting up with my complaining. To Amy and Bailey, as well as all of the American Hereford Association staff, thank you for always keeping me on track and making sure I get things done on time. To all my fellow “boardies,” past and present, thank you for the memories of a lifetime. To my Hereford family across the country, thank you for encouraging me to follow my dreams and supporting me every step of the way. Most of all, to the members, whether I have known you forever or just met you, thank you for trusting me to lead you and for becoming some of my most cherished friends along the way. While I will miss my time as a board member, the memories made in this once-in-a-lifetime journey will forever be in my heart and will help me in whatever I choose to do.

Foundation’s Focus

Bridging the Gap

by Amy Cowan

Creating opportunities and preparing members of the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) for the real world is front and center of the mission of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA). The Foundation is proud to offer countless scholarship opportunities for Hereford youth, awarding more than $170,000 every year. After establishing scholarships, HYFA’s focus shifted to the Growing a Lasting Legacy campaign and educational events like the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). Years later, with many thanks to successful fundraising efforts, HYFA and the legacy fund financially support the JNHE up to $50,000 each year to offset escalating facility expenses.

28

| May/June 2019

Focus on education HYFA continues to add funds to focus on leadership and education. The Coley-Malir Leadership Endowment is taking the Faces of Leadership Conference to new heights, and the Cottonwood Springs Educational Endowment is opening doors to educational experiences at the JNHE as juniors get ready to head to college and to take that first internship or job. In a quest to help youth discover their passion and plans for the future, the NJHA board is excited to announce the inaugural Bridging the Gap College and Career Fair, debuting at the 2019 JNHE. This event will connect NJHA members with collegiate and industry professionals. Brand representatives will talk one-on-one with juniors

and their families — an excellent way to start the conversation about college and careers. “Hereford juniors are highly regarded and represent the utmost in talent,” says Nathan Hopkins, NJHA membership chairman. “What better way to feed their potential than provide avenues for education, internships, careers and future endeavors?” Hereford juniors — don’t miss this opportunity to converse oneon-one with industry professionals who will help guide your college experience and help you bridge the gap to a successful career. Amy Cowan is the American Hereford Association’s director of youth activities and foundation. She can be reached at acowan@hereford.org.

Communications Corner by Kendra Davis

Maximize Your Sale Revenue Learn the secrets to success in the sale barn at the “The Brand” Marketing Summit.

The days of depending on traditional avenues to sell cattle are coming to an end. With countless tools available, there are many opportunities for sellers to overcome obstacles at sale time. Dunn Herefords owner Bill Dunn, Cochratan, Penn., is familiar with taking discounts at the sale barn. “We’re at a bit of a geographical disadvantage when it comes to marketing our calves,” Dunn says. Therefore, he developed a plan to combat the issue. Rather than selling calves sporadically in the fall, Dunn backgrounds calves in order to sell them in larger groups, sorted by lot size, later in the year. Another advantage of selling larger loads is marketing them in Herefordinfluenced feeder calf sales. Years ago, Carthage Livestock Inc. owners Brent and Kris Lowderman and American Hereford Association (AHA) fieldman John Meents teamed up with a group of producers, including Dunn, to form a strategy to eliminate discounts on their

cattle. Debuting in 2007, the resulting Greater Midwest Certified Hereford-Influenced Feeder Calf Sale in Carthage, Ill., is now one of the largest Hereford-influenced feeder calf sales in the nation — this year 1,326 head of Herefordinfluenced feeder cattle grossed more than $1.1 million. Sales like this make a big difference in how buyers perceive Hereford and Hereford-influenced feeder cattle. “I talked to some guys that have bought cattle four or five years in a row and they are sold on what we are doing,” Dunn says. “They know we have performance that will rival other breeds. I think the sale has put a very positive light on the breed of cattle and what we’re doing.” Still, Dunn emphasizes quality matters. He credits high performance calves and a good backgrounding program in helping calves reach their genetic potential. He also believes informing commercial producers that Hereford-influenced sales provide premiums will simultaneously promote Hereford bull sales.

Discover more The AHA is excited to have Dunn as part of the “Maximize Your Revenue at Sale Time” session at “The Brand” Marketing Summit. In this panel session — also featuring Jason Barber, Superior Livestock Auction and Barber Ranch, and Mark Johnson, Producers Livestock Marketing and Sleepy Hollow Farm — realworld cattlemen will discuss how to overcome problematic situations. These panelists come with a wealth of knowledge on creatively selling Hereford feeder cattle to benefit both the buyer and the seller. “I’m excited to meet and talk to producers from other areas of the country experiencing ‘Hereford discrimination’ and might be at a geographical disadvantage like we are,” Dunn says. “We’ve worked hard to solve these problems, and I’m excited to share what we’ve been able to do.” Kendra Davis is the American Hereford Association’s director of marketing and communications.

‘The Brand’ Session Preview:

The Power of Meat by Kendra Davis

“T

he Brand” Marketing Summit will provide an opportunity to learn from fellow Hereford breeders and industry experts. One industry expert from whom The Brand participants can expect to hear is Anne-Marie Roerink, founder of 210 Analytics LLC. Through countless consumer studies, Roerink has developed an excellent perspective on the everchanging wants and needs of the consumer. She understands the challenges and opportunities in the food business today as well as the drivers of success tomorrow. I sat down with Roerink for an interview about how Herefords fit into the meat industry. Read below for more information.

Q A

How did you get to where you are today? Even as a kid, I think I drove my parents absolutely crazy by eternally asking, “Why? Why, mom, why?” I don’t think anybody was surprised that I ended up being a market researcher. At the end of the day, I absolutely love understanding how people shop, how they eat, how they live and how it impacts who’s retailing and the meat industry specifically. [I am] absolutely a grocery geek at heart.

Q A

What exactly is “The Power of Meat?” “The Power of Meat” is a very unique and in-depth study of the state of the meat industry. We all know ultimately our fate in our industry is decided by how the consumer spends [money/ time?] — that’s why the bulk of “The Power of Meat” looks at consumer behavior. We also make sure that we tell the actual sale side of the story as well — it shows the full 360 of our world.

32

| May/June 2019

Q A

How did the study begin and why did you decide to do it? I vividly remember the meeting planners for the Annual Meat Conference coming to me and saying, “You know, as producers, packer processors, retailers, we all have data about how we’re doing in terms of sales, but ultimately, that only tells a little bit of the story. What can we do to give the industry some tools to really understand why the consumer is doing what they’re doing in the meat case?” That’s really where “The Power of Meat” came from all those years ago. It’s really developed [into] almost the bible of the meat industry. Every single year we look at new topics, little dots on the horizon, that might or may not be something that we need to start paying attention to.

Q A

Why do you think variety is so important for the consumer in today’s market? When people are out eating dinner, that’s the kind of experience they want to recreate at home as well. But then, at the same time, we’re struggling with some of the younger consumers who don’t know about meat as well as the Boomer shoppers and are not as comfortable preparing all these different cuts. To me, that is actually a massive opportunity for the meat industry and the beef industry, specifically, to help create the variety people are craving to make sure they don’t go to restaurants or go to plant-based meat alternatives. Hereford.org


Q A

Where does Certified Hereford Beef ® fit in? I think, actually the last couple of years and going forward. It’s a better opportunity than we’ve seen in a long, long time. What we’re seeing among Millennials is that while they are not brand loyal at center store, they are actually much more brand and breed loyal in the meat case. The reason for that is because they don’t know as much about meat, especially beef, and so they equate a certain eating experience with a brand. I think the Certified Hereford Beef program is one of the great opportunities for retailers and food service alike to educate consumers about the flavor, marbling [and] how you cook [beef] for your best eating experience. And what happens is, when shoppers have had that great eating experience, they come back and want just Hereford beef — just beef from the program — and believe that’s their key to success.

Q A

What can Hereford producers do specifically to promote Hereford beef? Whether it’s an actual breed or an actual brand, it all comes down to building a differentiated story in the minds of the consumer. We hear this term “transparency” a lot, and to me, that’s a fancy marketing way to say, “Consumers want to know more about where their food comes from? Who raised it? Where was it raised? How were the animals treated?” Specific to Hereford, it’s a lesser-known breed, but certainly by being able to talk about the flavor profile, the marbling, what is unique about [the breed]. I always stress to producers that it’s not just about the features. If we’re able to tell our story in terms of a benefit, I think we have a massive win on our hands.

Q

When it comes to other protein sources, how should we position ourselves to compete with them?

A

I’m actually a big believer of a rising tide lifts all boats. What is happening in the grocery store right now is a lot of other categories are starting to, or have been, feeling our protein thunder if you will. We have things like peanut butter and granola bars and protein shakes. Really, every category around the store has massive protein call-outs

Hereford.org

except for the meat department. Our first charge as the meat and poultry industry needs to be making sure we keep meat on the center of plates of most consumers. Making sure people understand the nutrient density, and the benefits of having meat and protein on the plate is incredibly important. Then from there, the second charge will be all about making sure we keep beef and Hereford beef front and center by, of course, competing with our competition in that area. To me, the first battle needs to be about keeping protein on the plate.

Q

How can Hereford producers encourage shoppers to buy outside of their normal buying habits?

A

Meat’s biggest enemy is routine. We’ve all been there. Saturday morning the grocery trip rolls around, and whether you write out your meat purchases or not, you typically end up buying the same items you buy all the time. Figuring out a way to break through routine is incredibly important, and by doing that, you just have to find a way to get into people’s mind as you’re planning those dinners.

Q A

What is your session at The Brand Marketing Summit going to cover? I’m very much looking forward to sharing as much as I know about meat and beef and Hereford beef. But I always encourage people to have their questions ready for me because, to me, any good presentation means I learn as much from the audience as they learn from me. For the most part, we’re going to cover how meat and beef and Hereford beef really fit into people’s changing food culture. Then how people are shopping is changing drastically, and how can we benefit from that as an industry.

Q A

What are you most excited to share with participants at “The Brand”? Ultimately, I think our success is based on understanding the consumer the best way possible. If we understand how the consumer wants to vote with his wallet and play into that, then we all win.

Hereford Women

All Hail the Queen

by Betsy Pitstick

The National Hereford Women (NHW) queen program is unlike any other program in the industry. Hereford queens are held to the utmost set of rules and regulations, many of which have continued from the beginning of the program. Hereford queens pride themselves in what they represent — the cattle and their breeders.

Exciting times The current queen, Emily Meinhardt, of Marysville, Kan., has done an extraordinary job representing the American Hereford Association (AHA). She has attended the fall and winter national shows and is gearing up for the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Denver. Emily is currently collecting items for her basket as part of the state basket auction. She is also organizing the Queen’s Tea and a

OFFICERS AND COMMITTEE CHAIRS

service project taking place at the JNHE. Emily has been hard at work attending shows and sales, and NHW members greatly appreciate all of her time and effort. We also want to thank all of the supporters of this program. Without the support of donors, breeders, parents, state associations and many others, our program would not be what it is today. Past, present and future queens will forever be grateful for all of the support they receive. These experiences, whether as a national queen, state queen or state princess, are beneficial to our industry. I never realized how much responsibility the Queen had and what an amazing adventure this experience is until I became the “Queen Mom.” This duty became my passion as well. Before this last year, I did not realize what all was involved. I have experienced the behind-the-scenes responsibilities firsthand, and I fell in love with the industry, cattle and, most of all, the people. I have said so before and will say it again — this is an indescribable experience, and if you are given the opportunity, you will never forget it.

The current National Hereford Queen, Emily Meinhardt, shows future queens the ropes at national shows.

One of the queen’s exciting ways to give back is through her service project each year at the JNHE.

452 Bulls Recognized as CHB Sires of Distinction The Certified Hereford Beef Sire of Distinction (CHBS) program recognizes Hereford bulls that have excelled in carcass traits. The American Hereford Association Board of Directors initiated this program in August 2007. To qualify as a CHBS, a bull must: 1) Be in the top 25 percent for the CHB$ profit index.

2) Have a minimum accuracy level of 25 percent for both ribeye area (REA) and marbling (MARB) expected progeny difference (EPD).

The CHBS recognizes sires in the Hereford breed that excel in improving bottomline profit in the feedlot and on the rail. Although all bulls have the opportunity, only a few bulls qualify for this attribution. A bull receiving the CHBS status will be recognized with CHB after his name when doing an animal or EPD inquiry on Hereford.org. A list of the 452 sires recognized as a CHBS follows.

Feedin’ Stock to FEEDIN’ FOLKS Feedstore BBQ uses Certified Hereford Beef to impress customers old and new. by Brooklyn Adam

T

he big city lights were in their rearview mirror as they embarked on a new journey. At that time Southlake, Texas, provided Bill and Phyllis Lafavers an escape from the big city scene and the opportunity to give their four children — Mike, Eva, Mark and Matt — room to grow. The first thing on the agenda was finding the right home for their young family. Luckily, they soon found the perfect parcel down a two-lane blacktop behind Miller’s Grocery. Little did they know the nostalgic, two-gas-pump store serving the rural community by means of a meat counter and feedstore would soon become their livelihood. The historic retail establishment — which had changed hands several times since the Miller family — came up for sale again in 1997. After seeing the store evolve over the years, it was only fitting the Lafavers would take the leap to purchase. This was just the beginning for Bill and Phyllis. The feed and tack store took on a new identity — Lafavers’ Enterprises Inc. It was the perfect completion to the Lafavers’ land. The Lafavers family ran the store for a while until they figured out the animals were moving out and the people were moving in. They turned their mission from “feedin’ stock” to “feedin’ folks” instead. The building was remodeled, maintaining the feel of the original feedstore while bringing in neon lights and hanging license plates. Feedstore BBQ came to life in April 2001, and with a few family recipes and the support of a great community, it was destined to be the best Texas BBQ around.

Commitment to consistency With quality a top priority, Feedstore BBQ switched to serving Certified Hereford Beef ® exclusively in September 2018. General Manager Mike Lafavers says, “The overall quality of beef we feel is better. We believe in the fact that because it is a more docile breed, it is therefore a higher quality product.” Certified Hereford Beef is no stranger to offering first-rate beef products. In fact, the brand recently upgraded its program specifications to ensure consumers enjoy a quality, consistent and memorable eating experience. Feedstore BBQ no doubt shares the same mission

and has held tight to its dedication of serving quality dishes to satisfy its customers’ tastes. Lafavers enjoys spending time visiting with patrons explaining the tight specifications associated with Certified Hereford Beef. To him, it is important people understand how the high standards of the program complement the company’s commitment to excellence. “[Certified Hereford Beef] has a very tight spec and our customers know what they get when they purchase it,” Lafavers points out. Customers have recognized this increase in quality, too. Lafavers says their regulars are thrilled with the upgrade in the beef on the menu. A line out the door is certain to stay at Feedstore BBQ with its dedication “Their brisket to serving up premium beef has always been and a loveable atmosphere. “This place has seriously pretty good, but now upgraded their barbeque,” they have switched a Southlake native notes. to premium Certified “I’ve always been a big fan Hereford Beef, and they of their ribs, and it’s been my go-to place to eat BBQ are now producing in this area for the last 10 some serious topyears or so.

turned back. “It was a good dinner, and [Gary and Kathy Buchholz] were very passionate about their livestock,” he recalls. “The folks at GKB led us to believe that [Hereford beef] is truly better, and it has increased our sales.” The heavy weather was unrelenting when it came time for Feedstore BBQ’s official launch of the Certified Hereford Beef program, but the Lafavers family was determined. While Mother Nature was flooding the streets of Southlake, customers were flooding the doors of Feedstore BBQ. “We had an enclosed tent and people would come in and try it then go inside and purchase it,” Lafavers recalls. “We had quite a bit of traffic coming in for a house that seats 116 people. We were really excited to promote a new product for us.” Certified Hereford Beef representatives Kaylen Alexander, director of marketing and communications, and Ty Ragsdale, regional brand manager, were on hand at the event to speak with customers about the brand’s current product offerings. “The Feedstore BBQ launch of Certified Hereford Beef was a phenomenal event,” Alexander says. “There was a line out the door — even in the pouring down rain. It was apparent Feedstore BBQ has a loyal customer base, and after talking with numerous lunch-goers about the Certified Hereford Beef product and how our program supports Texas Hereford families, they were hooked.” Feedstore BBQ advocated long before the launch day. For Lafavers, Gary and Kathy Buchholz’s everything had to be perfect down passion for the Hereford industry to the smallest of details. “We’d was extremely appealing to advertised it and put it out on social Feedstore BBQ in its search for a new beef program.

BEEF

Demand for high quality beef is on the rise and Certified Hereford Beef® is answering the call. by Kayla Jennings

he hustle and the bustle of springtime activities caught up — again. Practice for the kids before school, baseball games for the kids after school and exhausted parents left minimal time for preparing a family meal. During the week, ground beef came to the rescue as a convenient ingredient to put those hunger pangs at ease. Thankfully, the weekend is finally here, and with it brings cause for celebration, not only for making it through another crazy week but also for landing a new job — off to get the best steak in town. The aroma of the steakhouse and the sight of perfectly prepared ribeyes still sizzling from the grill get the stomach growling and the mouth watering. Yes, this is the perfect dinner for a big celebration. Beef has a unique position in the marketplace as a convenient protein for casual meals at home as well as for elaborate dining experiences. Bill Thoni, vice president of cattle procurement for Cargill Protein, puts it simply, “No other protein is as versatile as beef.” At the 2019 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Conference, Thoni and other panelists shared how this versatility makes beef the natural protein choice for many, but as the food industry continues to evolve, consumers are demanding even more bang for their buck. While this topic may seem most relevant to the packing and food service industries, it affects all parties involved. “What [consumers] need and what they are looking for is going to touch us all from the producer side, the cow-calf side, the feedyard side and then through the packing industry,” Thoni stresses.

Consumer-driven airwaves Collectively, American consumers want the best product they can get for the fairest price. However, industry leaders are actively researching exactly what consumers perceive to be “the best.” Is the best the cheapest? Is the best the highest quality grade? Is the best unconventionally raised or conventionally raised, or is it the option with the best story behind it? To better answer those key questions, Cargill researchers interviewed approximately 7,000 consumers from the U.S. and Canada. The research yielded valuable key insights on what the primary household shopper prioritizes at the meat counter. “From the consumer side, that appearance in that counter is huge,” Thoni says. To consumers, the visual appeal of the product including color, freshness and quality weigh heavily in their purchasing motives. This research does not go unsupported, as many studies have returned similar results. A University of Illinois study revealed color, price, visible fat and cut were the most important factors in purchasing beef. Tenderness, flavor and juiciness rose to the top regarding a satisfactory eating experience. In a similar study at Texas Tech University, participants ranked the following purchasing motivators from

most important to least: flavor, tenderness, juiciness, price, product consistency, nutritional value, ease of preparation, natural and organic. It is clear consumers desire enhanced quality, and Thoni feels strongly the cattle industry is fulfilling this need. “The quality of our cattle from a standpoint of grade today is as good as it has ever been in its career,” he says. “The quality of our cattle is outstanding.” In fact, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports indicate some weeks cattle are grading well over 75 percent Prime and Choice. Some areas of the industry are reaching 7 to 10 percent Prime — a big increase from the 1 to 2 percent 20 years ago.

NEW Bridging the Gap

Pen-to-Pen

Sunday, July 7, at 3 p.m. Last year at the JNHE the Pen-to-Pen program was unveiled to give exhibitors the opportunity to connect with other juniors from all over the country. This mentorship program is a way to link a new exhibitor with an experienced exhibitor to help the new exhibitor become involved in the NJHA. More than 900 Hereford youth from 40 states will be in Denver for Herefords on the Hill. With this many Hereford youth expected to attend the JNHE, it is a great opportunity to meet new friends and gain leadership skills at the Pen-to-Pen program. Leadership expert Rhett Laubach will be in attendance for team building activities and leadership advice. The NJHA board of directors have worked with Laubach to make this session one to inspire members to grow as a leader in the NJHA. During the week, each mentor and mentee is encouraged to attend events together and to engage in conversation at the stalls to foster their relationship. The program does not stop at the end of JNHE — throughout the year the mentor and mentee will write letters to each other to build a relationship and will connect at industry events and shows leading up to the 2020 JNHE. Be sure to register online at HerefordJuniorNational.com by June 15.

Monday, July 8, and Tuesday, July 9, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The NJHA is excited for Bridging the Gap to make its debut at the 2019 JNHE. This college and career fair will bring colleges and employers to Herefords on the Hill where members can engage in one-on-one interactions with industry representatives. Hereford juniors can get a head start on their future career by making connections at this two-day event in the Stadium Arena Link. The purpose of this event is for juniors to begin their college and career search early while learning about internship and job opportunities. Recruiters and brand representatives will be on hand to help guide youth as they begin making decisions that will influence their future. To prepare for Bridging the Gap, high school- and college-aged members are encouraged to think about potential college majors and careers of interest. This forethought will help industry representatives connect and align juniors with the best fit possible. For members who are starting early in a college search, this event will be a great opportunity to start learning about colleges with an agriculture program. This new experience will bridge the gap for many Hereford youth looking to further their education or to find a career in an agriculture-related field. Each year at JNHE, Bridging the Gap will feature new colleges and careers unique to the area. Come prepared this year to start your path to success for a future career. More information will be posted leading up to the event on Hereford.org/Youth. Editor’s Note: Reference Hereford.org/Youth for up-to-date information about all contests.

How cattle serve as environmental stewards by “upcycling” to feed the world. by Rebecca Bland

T

he beef industry has been under fire are taking a new, positive approach in discussing recently for its alleged harmful effects on the benefits of beef production — an open climate and health. In January 2019, a discussion of upcycling. report published in the British medical journal, What is upcycling? The Lancet, claimed a radical change in diet and The term “upcycling” refers to converting a food production is needed to “avoid potentially little-to-no-value item to a higher-value product. catastrophic damage to the planet.” The report As ruminants, cattle act as recommends a 50 percent natural upcyclers — they decrease in red meat and consume low-value, humansugar consumption while Cattle act as natural inedible plants and regenerate doubling the intake of nuts, upcyclers — they them into a high-quality fruits and vegetables.

carbohydrate on Earth. However, humans cannot digest cellulose, deeming it of no nutritional value when eaten. Due to the unique enzymes in their rumens, cattle can break down cellulose and convert it from low-value forage into a highquality protein source to supply humans with dietary essential amino acids that serve as the building blocks of protein. “That’s the beauty of cattle,” says Sara Place, Ph.D., senior director of sustainable beef production research, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “They have that symbiotic relationship with all those microbes that live in their rumens, Cattle allow farmers and ranchers to gain maximum value out of land unsuitable for crops. so they’re able to transform all that season’s crop, such as postharvest corn stalks and cellulose and all that fiber that are leaves. On such acreage, cattle improve the soil human inedibles into things that are usable.” quality by clearing crop stubble and depositing Upcycling in the cattle industry also occurs organic matter back into the ground. through cattle’s consumption of inedible Blinson uses a cover crop following tobacco byproducts or plant leftovers from processing on a neighboring farm, allowing cattle to graze crops. Byproducts, such as soy hulls, carrot through the cover crop approximately four times. tops, wheat middlings and citrus pulp, are “It works really well because it lets that land viable sources of nutrition for ruminants. Bryan be used productively multiple times a year Blinson, executive director of the North Carolina rather than just once,” he says. “The cover crop Cattlemen’s Association, feeds whole cottonseed helps hold the topsoil in place to avoid erosion byproduct to Herefords on his farm in Buies Creek, N.C. continued on page 68... “Feeding byproducts to cattle is an especially good choice since byproducts are something that might otherwise go to the landfill,” Blinson explains. “We found that whole cottonseed has been widely adapted as a really excellent feed, and cotton ginning and milling byproducts have helped to fill in for hay in some situations because of the nutritional value — and the fact that the cattle really like it.”

Making use of the land The Lancet report warns consumers that current food production is affecting climate change, biodiversity and sustainability in water and land use. With as many as 800 million acres available as rangeland in the U.S., some argue land is not being put to optimal use. However, not all land is suitable as cropland — some terrain is too rocky, steep or arid to support cultivated crops and, if cultivated, is highly erodible. Using ruminants for grazing, such as cattle, goats and sheep, allows landowners to raise human-edible food on these marginal lands. Additionally, wildlife and cattle coexist, creating an environment for both food production and natural habitat. Another multipurpose use involves cattle grazing on acres containing remnants from last Hereford.org

Cattle grazing last year’s crop is a valuable way to improve farmland by clearing past remnants and putting nutrients back into the soil.

and helps with weed control. The cattle also help fertilize the land, adding nutrients back into the soil to save on fertilizer.” As he points out, “To have good cattle, you have to have good grass and to have good grass, you have to have good soil.” Like many cattle producers, Blinson takes grazing one step further by integrating strategic grazing on his operation. He knows the forages available at different times of year and JBS USA, applauds the efforts of cattle producers to strategically moves the cattle employ new ways to better the land. from one fenced area to another, helping the “The heathier the landscape is, be it through cattle use the best forages and to distribute the implementation of a grazing management fertilizer as nutrients for the soil.

consumed increases. The only way for cattle to reduce the amount of methane gas they produce is to eat more human-edible food. Yet, feeding human-edible food to cattle runs counter to the benefit of upcycling. “If we’re going to talk about upcycling, it’s about creating wasteto-worth loops and taking anything that would be waste and making it a better thing rather than focusing on just greenhouse gas emissions,” Place notes. “We need to think about the bigger picture and how all these pieces fit together. That’s what’s really important.” As the global population reaches 7.7 billion people and counting, producing more food with less resources is a necessity in feeding the world. Though the majority of food cattle consume is forage and plant leftovers, grain makes up approximately 11 percent of grain-fed cattle’s life cycle feed intake. As a result, some people question the sustainability of feeding grain to cattle versus feeding grain directly to humans. But the grains fed to cattle, mostly corn in the U.S., are high in calories and low in protein. According to Place, cattle generate more highquality protein by using the corn supply than if humans ate the corn directly. A report from the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology confirms U.S. grain-finished beef cattle contribute 19 percent more human-edible protein than the cattle consume. “Cattle are making more protein for humanity than would exist without them,” Place says. “So they’re not really stealing food from our plates, they’re adding to our collective dinner table.” The U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef plays a significant role in advancing, supporting and communicating improvements about the sustainability of U.S. beef production. One of the organization’s many functions involves providing a forum for open discussion, information exchange and program development. “We continue to be extremely active, working to help identify ways for the entire beef value chain to improve and also help more individuals understand the complexities of beef production,” Stackhouse says. “By having a voice that speaks on behalf of the entire beef value chain, inclusive of civil society and allied industry partners, producers, packers and retailers, we Hereford.org

can reach more people and help them understand how beef is sustainable.”

Stepping up Recognizing cattle as upcyclers is not a new concept — cattle have been upcycling since they were domesticated more than 10,000 years ago. The current discussion about upcycling is a fresh way to think about how cattle sustainably contribute to the world food supply that resonates with the nonagricultural public. The beef industry encourages cattle producers to join in the upcycling conversation to inform their communities, friends, consumers and the media about the positive role cattle play in feeding an increasing world population. “The upcycling message helps open doors to get people more informed about the benefits of beef and thinking about the life cycle of cattle,” Place says. “We just need to let people know how our cattle are raised and what they’re eating, which is where the upcycling story really comes into play. “I think it’s important that our producers emphasize that if there’s one group of people thinking about taking care of the land, being good community members, sticking it out for the long term and having a long-term vision, it’s people in agriculture,” she adds. “It’s cattle producers.”

Focal and Functional Based where “locally raised” is highly praised, Hereford breeders have locked in on niche markets. by Diane Meyer

T

he first week of May has arrived, and with the prevailing temperate spring weather, a herd of 40 Hereford cows and calves trail out to a green, untrodden pasture of timothy and orchard grasses. From now until the start of deer season come mid-November, these moderateframed, sound cows will flourish on the steep, rocky, 1,000-foot-high hillsides constituting the northwest corner of Connecticut. New England Hereford Association President Jim Murdock latches the gate on those 40 goodnatured females and heads down to his shop for another day’s work of restoring vintage antique boats. Meanwhile, his wife, Gail, and daughter, Katie Adkins, have set up shop at a farmers market in Harwinton, Conn., ready to sell individual cuts of the family’s Blue Moon Farm Hereford beef to the locals of Litchfield County.

Looking local

Much like most — if not all — breeders populating the Northeastern states, the Murdocks have found their niche serving local customers. Their target market is simple — “farm markets.” “Out here, farm markets are the number one way to sell beef,” Jim Murdock says. “If you get into a market, especially a good one, you don’t give it up.” With families tending to become smaller in size and seeking individual cuts, Murdock aims for an 800-pound carcass at slaughter to avoid an inventory of hard-selling, half- and whole-sized cuts. With that in mind, he adjusts his weaning seasons. Ideally, he prefers all cows be fall calvers so they can be bred and kicked out on grass in the spring. However, “We don’t wean all at once for a reason, and that’s because of the beef,” he explains. “Otherwise, we’d have everything ready all at once, and that can’t be.” Steers need to be ready to slaughter year-round, which poses a major challenge because of limited numbers of processing plants in their part of the country. Luckily, Katie has helped alleviate the problem. After she completed more than 11 years of strenuous legwork, permits and construction, her lifelong dream came to fruition when she opened Plymouth Meats in 2017, a full USDAinspected slaughter and processing plant. “Her opening was a huge deal,” Murdock describes. “She was running two shifts inspected during the day and custom at night because people had limited places to go [with their cattle].” With small-acreage farms and, therefore, small herd sizes, skyrocketing Three generations of the Murdock family sell Blue Moon Farm Hereford beef directly to trucking expenses make it unrealistic customers at a local farmers markets.

to ship small groups to plants in the next state, much less to the Midwest. “A lot of places stopped their freezer beef business because there was not enough places to process them,” Murdock recalls. “When people from Connecticut are having to haul animals to New York, and Vermont and New Hampshire to try to get a scheduled opening to get an animal processed, it adds so much cost that it isn’t viable anymore.” Shipping costs pose a problem The Grass Pond Farm operation is a family affair.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

To Our Teenager Fourteen years. Fourteen years ago, a precious little blond-haired, greeneyed bundle of joy was placed into my arms. I was no longer only a career woman married to a great guy. I also gained the title of “Mom.” From that moment, my life was never the same.

First steps Good gracious, what in the world was I doing? This little life was now my responsibility? Was I ready for this? First, it was the sleepless nights. The worrying about feedings and formulas and stuffy noses. Did I mention sleepless nights? Then the toddler years, the potty training, the preschool decisions and the kindergarten parties. I thought those were the tough days. I thought life would get easier as he grew. As we were able to sleep through the night, as he was able to dress himself and brush his teeth without reminders — most days. But, oh, how I was so very wrong. The worries were just different, but they truly seem to pale in comparison to those of the teenage years. It’s a delicate time. Of letting go, yet still guiding. Of hoping the life lessons you’ve instilled are really sticking. Of praying you’re teaching all the skills he will need to make it on his own in just a few short years. Will he be able to do his own laundry? Will he know to separate the lights from the darks? Will he be able to make a meal that doesn’t come on a stick or in a frozen bag? He can’t just live on corn dogs and chicken nuggets, can he?

Frightening Despite the worries and sleepless nights, though, we simply must focus

| May/June 2019

on what we’re doing right as parents. All of us. In honor of these 14 years of you being our guinea pig in this parenting gig, Waylon, this is for you. I know we have high expectations for you. You’re the firstborn, and we’ve wanted you to excel in all you try. To put your best foot forward. To not give it anything less than your greatest effort. Please know, it’s only because we know you can do it. Our goal is simple: To help you develop a work ethic to carry you through your career for a lifetime. I can see the effort you make to bite your tongue when I ask those annoying questions: “How was your day?” “What was great about school today?” I can see you trying to be polite when I remind you to use your manners. Never forget how so very proud I am when an adult lets us know how kind and considerate you are. I know you don’t always feel like talking to me about your problems or what’s on your mind. I am your mom, and to a teenage boy, it may not be cool. Yes, I know. You tell me “cool” is not “cool” to say anymore. I’m trying. But know I’m always here for you. Always. You’re the first child. The oldest. You’ve been the recipient of the trialsand-errors of first-time parents. Yes, your younger brother may get a phone earlier than you did. Yes, your little sister may get more leeway with certain family rules. It’s not because we love them more. We have just learned to let some things go as time goes on. Thanks for taking one for the team.

I know my hugs can sometimes drive you crazy. I try not to embarrass you too often in front of your friends. But know, I am always going to hug you because you’re always going to be my boy. Deal with it. Your dad and I are doing our best to let you be your own person. To make your own mistakes and to learn from them. To try new activities and to learn where your passions lie. To avoid haircuts, even when we beg. Although, I’ll admit — those long curls are growing on me, too. You need to be “you,” and we are so proud watching that process unfold. I’ve heard it said the sign of good parents are those who worry they’re completely screwing up. Why? Because that shows they care. It shows they truly do want what’s best for their children. Every one of us in the livestock industry is investing a great deal of time, energy and yes — money — into helping our children succeed and grow. To me, that’s complete evidence we do care about these young folks in our lives. We do want to be the best parents we can be. Will we make mistakes? Of course. Lots of them. But we will keep working to correct the mistakes and to try again. I have a feeling our children will know we love them and will know we have always tried to do what’s best. Even if we do embarrass them with our hugs — and using the term “cool” in public. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill.

Willard went on to graduate from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in animal science and a minor in business law. While attending college, Willard got his start buying and selling feeder and fat cattle at the Oklahoma City Stockyards. In 1963, he was hired by the Livestock Market News before being transferred to Washington, D.C., and later accepted a position with the Foreign Agricultural Service.

| May/June 2019

In 1968, Willard moved to Spokane and began working as the Northwest field representative for the American Hereford Association (AHA) — a position he held for 33 years. During that time he served as a consultant, marketer, researcher and promoter of the Hereford breed across the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and Australia. The “Willard Wolf Award” is given each December at the Reno show to an outstanding junior Hereford member. He was former president of the Spokane County Cattlemen, served on committees with the Washington Cattlemen’s Association, was an active member of the Cattle Producers of Washington, served on the Spokane Junior Livestock Show board, and for more than 30 years he conducted educational programs as part of the Spokane Ag Expo/Pacific Northwest Farm Forum. Willard was inducted into the AHA Hall of Merit in 2005 and the National Livestock Marketeers Hall of Fame in 2007. Willard officially retired from the AHA in 2001, but he never left the cattle industry. Willard stayed active in purchasing cattle for the Certified Hereford Beef ® program and Crossroads Cattle Co. up until a few days before he passed. Willard is survived by his wife, Patty; son, Bart Wolf; daughters, Wende (Lance) Wilber and Wendy Porter; his grandchildren, Ian and Claire Wilber; and his brother, Gordon (Jeannie) Wolf. Janet L. (Quaintance) Shuman, 74, Springfield, Ohio, passed away March 16. She was born in Springfield, Ohio, Janet Shuman on May 4, 1944, the daughter of Leonard F. and Emma L. (Clark) Weber. Janet was a graduate of Northeastern Local Schools and The Ohio State University. She was the owner of Grandview Farms, which is in its sixth generation of ownership and celebrated its bicentennial in 2018. She retired as a teacher with more than 20 years of service. Janet also worked as an instructor for JobsPlus as a job trainer

in Clark and Madison Counties. She was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan and enjoyed attending cattle shows to watch the grandkids show their fair projects and any other event or sport in which her grandkids participated. She is survived by her former husband, Bob Quaintance; children, Jennifer (Ron) Fleming, Becky (Jay) Reed and Elizabeth Olsen; her husband, John Shuman; stepchildren, Bryan (Lorrie) Shuman and Matt (Mary) Shuman; a stepdaughter-in-law Debbie Shuman; sisters, Gloria Jean and Kathryn R. Weber; grandchildren, Casey Fleming, Laramie Reed, Carlin Olsen, Ian Olsen, Codee Reed and Stephen Roddy; and numerous step-grandchildren.

In the News PenPower Book Marketing Services and Rocking R Books have announced New Mexico author Connie Perez’s debut children’s book, “Home on the Rocking R Ranch,” has received a Mom’s Choice Gold® Award. The book, which introduces children to the day-to-day tasks of a working ranch, took home the top honors in the Children’s Picture Books: Domestic Animals & Pets category. “It’s an honor to receive such a prestigious award,” Perez says. “The Mom’s Choice Awards are known for connecting consumers to the best in family friendly products and it’s an incredible honor to receive their highestlevel Gold Award.” Perez’s inspiration for the book stems from her ranching experiences, which she combines with her teaching background to craft an informative and entertaining story. Perez is a ranch wife, a mother, a grandmother and a retired elementary school teacher. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and, after retiring, was eager to find a way to cope with her diagnosis. She picked up a pen and a paintbrush and has brought ranch work to life for young children. The second book in the series, entitled “Kuper Visits the Rocking R Ranch,” was released in April.
