World’s Perspective

Branding the Best

by Julie Mais

Hereford breeders can be proud to offer a product that is gaining national recognition for its tenderness and quality.

Julie Mais is the editor of Hereford World. She can be reached at jmais@hereford.org.

While on a recent walk through my neighborhood, I was taking in the signs that spring was fully among us. The grass was greening up, trees were budding and the first flowers of the year were emerging from the ground. The birds were plentiful, and their spring songs were beautiful. About halfway through this particular walk, a scent caught my nose — one that’s indicative of warm weather. It meant my favorite time of year was finally upon us when families are spending more time outdoors, the grill is king and beef is center stage. May kicks off the summer grilling season when families across the U.S. will enjoy steaks, burgers and allbeef hotdogs at family meals, parties, holiday celebrations and tailgates. This edition of the Hereford World is again dedicated to Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) with a focus on the beef industry from farm to fork. Hereford plays an important role in the sustainability of our industry and our way of life by creating a product demanded by consumers.

Beyond the breed With the momentum the breed is enjoying, along with the strategic plan set a year ago by the American Hereford Association Board of Directors, Hereford is poised to be a leader in the industry. As a member of an industry providing a nutritious, great-tasting protein to consumers, I’ve witnessed Hereford breeders step up to the challenges and demands from its customers. Known as the “efficiency experts,” Hereford naturally offers cattle that do more with less. With 7% higher pregnancy rates, $51 more per cow per year, a $30 advantage in feedlot profitability and a $20 advantage in feed efficiency, according to research that can be found at Hereford.org/genetics,

Hereford heterosis creates sustainability in the beef supply chain for your customers and, in turn, consumers. The CHB brand is home to naturally great-tasting beef. Hereford breeders can be proud to offer a product that is gaining national recognition for its tenderness and quality. The CHB team is working to share this message with consumers and driving demand.

In this issue This issue’s special section starts on Page 32 with the Certified Hereford Beef Sire of Distinction program. This year 363 bulls are recognized for excelling in carcass traits and improving bottom-line profit in the feedlot and on the rail. On Page 36 we hear from retiring CHB President Jim Mickelson on how the CHB program is creating demand for Hereford beef. Turn the page to meet a celebrity chef and TV personality who is incorporating CHB into his unique culinary style. Rounding out this section is the latest on beef nutrition research, the beef demand outlook and a report on U.S. beef production. The National Junior Hereford Association’s (NJHA) biggest event of the year is fast approaching. On Page 55 find information on this year’s Junior National Hereford Expo in Grand Island, Neb., as we share the latest on the exciting shows, contests and family fun planned for July 1-7. The NJHA summer excitement doesn’t end there. Youth are headed to the West Coast this year for the Faces of Leadership Conference in San Francisco. A schedule can be found on Page 86. I hope each of you has a fun-filled summer and can enjoy some great Hereford beef on the grill. Hereford.org

Breed Focus

A Balanced Team

by Jack Ward

Keep fundamentals in mind while utilizing genetic selection tools.

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

As many of you know, I really enjoy basketball — especially watching college basketball. As I write this article, we just completed “March Madness,” which is one of my favorite times of the year. In about a three-week period, you can see some incredible college basketball games, and this year was no exception. A No. 16 seed beat a No. 1, and my Purdue Boilermakers looked like a team to contend. They did make it past the first round but couldn’t get it done in their second game of the tournament. Additionally, I think we may have seen one of the best college basketball teams of recent times win the championship. The Villanova Wildcats were refreshing to watch for many reasons but, mostly, because they were a great team. The team included a very impressive bench, and each teammate had confidence in the other. They were well coached on the basics of defense, passing, shot faking, driving and rebounding. What a team! It was obvious that they had a goal with their sights set on a national championship.

On Page 32 in this issue of the Hereford World, you will find a list of bulls that qualify for Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) Sires of Distinction recognition. These sires meet a threshold for accuracy, and this group has a very straightforward goal with all progeny expected to be terminal. These sires would be selected to use on mature cows with a target of producing cattle through retained ownership that will grow with fewer inputs and produce a high-quality, high-indexing carcass. Again, we measure not only the output but the inputs to maximize profit. When your customers are looking to retain ownership on a set of calves with no emphasis on heifer retention, this is a set of sires to consider. If your customers have a specific grid in mind,

then you may want to sort them first on the Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) and then put emphasis on a specific trait. With a balanced approach, just like the Wildcats, you can build a set of bulls that maximize profit, not just output. If we simply breed for more, then we lose sight of the input portion of our programs and, ultimately, our customers’ programs. With that said, we do need to push the limits and not be afraid to push our environment for more production. Commercial cattlemen expect this from their seedstock suppliers. Just like the Wildcats’ team not being made up of one-and-done NBA stars, your artificial insemination (AI) sires and herd bulls need to balance the traits that make you and your customers profitable. Even though it is good “coffee shop” talk to say your cattle topped the market at the local sale barn or that your bull gained more than 5 lb. a day on test, it doesn’t always equate to the most profit. We need to push all traits but realize there can be additional costs associated with bending the curve. Let’s play smart and start with the fundamentals of type and structure for our environment and then incorporate the tools that help make genetic selections to produce the kind of cattle that fit your environment. Congratulations to the breeders who have produced or own sires that have received the CHB Sires of Distinction recognition. This accomplishment shows your dedication to making Hereford cattle better. Lastly, Memorial Day is also fast approaching. This annual holiday does give us time to celebrate with our families, but, more importantly, it should give us time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a country with the freedoms and opportunities we have. God bless all who have served and continue to serve our country. Hereford.org

Performance Matters

Capitalize on Genotyping

by Shane Bedwell

Capturing genotypes will help accelerate genetic change.

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.

Spring work is in full mode, and I’m sure everyone is busy with a variety of jobs as it relates to your farm or ranch. A couple of articles ago, I wrote about the value of the Gold TPR (Total Performance Records™) program. I have received several phone calls and emails since the article about folks wanting to do a better job of measuring and recording data as well as getting their inventories billed in a timelier fashion. Other than getting the inventory billed on time, which needs to happen before the surcharge deadline (March 1-spring and Sept. 1-fall), the only other time-sensitive deadline is getting all of the weight traits, scrotal measuring and ultrasounding done before Jan. 1 of the recognition year. This is because the system allows a twoyear window for compliance, meaning the 2020 recognition year will be based on the 2018 calf crop.

Platinum TPR I’m pleased to announce that during the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors’ spring meeting, the Board passed a motion to add a “Platinum” level to our Whole Herd TPR recognition program. The Platinum TPR Breeder will be the highest level of achievement when it comes to complete calf crop reporting. In order to achieve the Platinum level, breeders will need to meet all of the requirements of Gold TPR Breeder status but also must genotype 85% of the calves with a weaning weight submitted. The time requirement to do this will fall under the same twoyear compliancy rule, where 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. Year 2020 may seem like a long way down the road, especially after a winter and spring that many of you have endured, but it will be here before we know it. I can’t help thinking how much more demand and market share Hereford will have gained by this time. It’s quite exciting to keep building this momentum and progressing in terms of breed improvement. Capturing these complete and important genotypes will not only help you maximize accuracy and selection intensity of breeding programs, but it will also allow you to shorten generation interval, which in return will accelerate genetic change. Early adopters of genomic testing have been able to capitalize the most when it comes to accelerating genetic change, and it is time the Association properly recognizes these breeders for their efforts. With that said, the opportunity is in front of you to leverage the AHA’s genetic tools and resources to your advantage going forward. I’m looking forward to congratulating the first recipients of the Platinum TPR program as well as growing and strengthening all of our TPR programs.

Beef Improvement Federation I would like to invite you to attend the 2018 Beef Improvement Federation Annual Meeting and Research Symposium. Registration is now open for this year’s event, themed 50th Anniversary in the Rockies, June 20-23 at the Embassy Suites Convention Center Hotel in Loveland, Colo.

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 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, 2017. 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 April June 1 June

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

IT TAKES MORE THAN A LITTLE LUCK TO KEEP CALVES HEALTHY.

It takes the power of Pyramid® 5 + Presponse® SQ, the only approved combination vaccine that protects for at least 217 days against BVDV Type 1b — the most common subtype of BVDV in infected calves. Vaccination provides a protective effect against the development of post-challenge viremia and leukopenia. Choose the viral and bacterial protection of PYRAMID 5 + PRESPONSE SQ, and realize that luck has nothing to do with raising healthy, high-returning calves.

Online auction raises nearly $40,000 for Hereford Research Foundation An online auction hosted March 15 raised approximately $40,000 to benefit the Hereford Research Foundation (HRF), a division of the HYFA. The HRF was established in 2009 to support breed improvement projects outside the scope of the AHA budget. More than 60 lots were offered in the sale, ranging from items such as semen and embryos to hunting trips and feeding equipment. The items sold on SmartAuctions.co to buyers from 21 states. “We are humbled by the participation from both donors and buyers during this sale,” says Shane Bedwell, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. “It’s great to have the support of an industry that has the same focus as the foundation does on the betterment of the Hereford breed.”

Plan to attend BIF Symposium The 2018 Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Research Symposium and Convention is set for June 20-23, 2018, in Loveland, Colo. In its 50th year, the convention serves to facilitate discussion and to provide education on current issues facing the beef industry.

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

by Laura Loschke

It’s important for Hereford breeders to utilize all resources available through the American Hereford Association (AHA). One of these resources is the “EPD/Animal Search” function on Hereford.org and Myherd.org. For MyHerd users, the link is located in the upper right-hand corner of the account page. Website guests can access this function from the homepage by hovering over the “Genetics” tab and selecting “EPD Search.” Users can then log in as an authorized user or gain access as a guest. To search for a particular animal, click the tab along the top of the screen that says “Animal Inquiry.” The next screen allows users to

search by entering the animal’s name, registration number or other criteria. Searching by the registration number is the easiest way, but omit the “P” in front of the number for this search to work appropriately. The next screen will show the animal’s name, birth date, registration number, Herd ID and sex. Clicking the animal’s name will provide even more information such as pedigree, EPDs, breed averages, the animal’s EPD graph, the breeder, the current owner and a list of the animal’s progeny. The sortable progeny list is only accessible to an authorized user. The “Animal Inquiry” or “EPD Inquiry” tabs both allow breeders to search for a list of animals. However, the difference between the two is that clicking on “Animal Inquiry” allows a search by specific animal characteristics. For example, by using the “Animal Inquiry” page, a producer can choose “Animal Is Non-Certificate AI Sire” and “Animal Is DNA Tested Homozygous Polled,” if desired.

EPD inquiry Utilizing the “Animal Inquiry” feature, users can view a full profile on registered cattle.

Conversely, producers seeking a specific EPD range can search by those

values using the “EPD Inquiry.” For instance, if calving ease is a high priority, you can search for a minimum and maximum calving ease direct (CED) number. Once all the criteria are entered, click the search button to generate a list of animals meeting the criteria. The list is sortable by animal name, ID or any of the EPD columns. The upper right-hand corner of the screen will indicate how the list is currently sorted. The upper left-hand corner will reveal the selection criteria utilized. Clicking on any of the animals on this list will show more details about that individual animal. AHA members can actually be searched in this same manner. This feature makes it easy to search for Hereford breeders in a specific region. Pedigree members or Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) members can be used to narrow the search, as well. If the process becomes challenging, look at the bottom of the “EPD Inquiry” page for a link that reads “How to use these search facilities.” That link will take you to a very descriptive and useful “help page.” It will describe how to use the search forms as well as how to read the results you receive. This page is very helpful, and I highly suggest reading through it before starting searches. If you have questions about these search functions, please email us at accts@hereford.org. As always, if you have questions about MyHerd, registrations, transfers or just questions in general, please don’t hesitate to call AHA Customer Service at 816-842-3757. Laura Loschke is the education and information service coordinator of the American Hereford Association. She can be reached at lloschke@hereford.org.

Users can utilize the “EPD Inquiry” tool to view cattle fitting certain criteria.

CHB Bites

Certified Hereford Beef News

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.

Certified Hereford Beef provides partner support Aside from serving the best-tasting beef in the industry, companies that partner with Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) as a licensee receive many benefits, including marketing assistance. Kern Meat Co., a family-owned St. Louis-based meat company servicing five Midwest foodservice companies, is one licensed partner that is taking advantage of the marketing assistance CHB can offer. Kern Meat Co. trucks are now spreading the CHB message around the greater St. Louis area with a customized truck wrap. “Kern Meat Co. has proudly featured Certified Hereford Beef as its flagship beef program for nearly a decade,” says Matt Sherman, Kern Meat Co. general manager. “From marketing support to providing

a consistent and quality-driven product, CHB is one of our most valued partners. Most recently, this partnership was demonstrated when CHB leadership offered to design a wrap for a new truck in our fleet. We were able to work directly with the CHB marketing team to produce one of the best looking designs to ever adorn our trucks. Most importantly, we are proud to display the CHB logo and product on our new truck.” Eye-catching truck wrap designs are just one of many ways the CHB marketing team is appealing to consumers across the United States. “Kern Meat Co. has been a longtime partner of the brand, and we appreciate the effort they give the program each day,” says Amari Seiferman, CHB chief operating officer. “It is important for us to partner with companies that have integrity and a great reputation to

carry on our mission of providing the highest quality beef and supporting our Hereford farmers and ranchers. Individually we can only go so far, but with partners like Kern Meat Co, we are able to do so much more.”

Certified Hereford Beef exhibits at Annual Meat Conference The CHB team traveled to Nashville, Tenn., in February to showcase CHB at the Annual Meat Conference — the largest gathering of professionals in the meat and poultry industry. The three-day conference and trade show featured professional development workshops, industry insights and a one-day trade show event. The entire CHB team attended the event, along with more than 1,200 meat industry professionals. “The Annual Meat Conference provides a platform to create brand recognition to today’s leader in the industry,” Seiferman says. “We are motivated to use this opportunity to tell our story about the breed and how the brand can help their business create a competitive advantage through differentiation and quality.” Kaylen Alexander is the director of marketing and communications for Certified Hereford Beef. She can be reached at kalexander@hereford.org.

Youth Movement From Making Memories to a Final Farewell by Bailey McKay

Writing my final article as a National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board member has given me the opportunity to reflect on my personal path to becoming a director and the valuable experiences I have had in this position. Throughout high school, I held leadership roles in local and state organizations like 4-H, FFA and the Kansas and Nebraska Junior Hereford Associations. These organizations helped me develop the organizational and communication skills I would need to successfully serve on the national board. My desire to become a board member developed during my senior year of high school. I realized

that a position on the board would open up opportunities for me to learn more about the Hereford breed, to meet breeders from across the nation and to become a mentor for youth. I discussed my interest in running with my family who encouraged me to get a year of college under my belt first. As I waited, I suffered a major family loss. I remember thinking of a list of people I could always go to or call anytime, and the majority of that list consisted of people I met through the NJHA. After that, I was bound and determined to become one of the twelve in the maroon jackets. I wanted to serve the youth and to become the person they looked to when seeking advice or needing a question answered. That year the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) was in Grand Island, Neb. Normal interviews in a typical conference room with two interviewers are intimidating, but being interviewed by twelve people in a glamorous ranch-style conference room was intense. The part I enjoyed the most through the selection process was being able to speak twice with the junior delegates. It was easy to be myself and to let the chips land where they might. However, the most terrifying moment was when the awards night rolled around that week. I swear, retiring NJHA president, Brady Jensen, was speaking in slow motion all evening. Finally, Amy Cowan took the microphone and the retiring board members exited the stage. Brady strode purposefully to his family only stopping to give Brooke his jacket before hugging his parents. I watched Kristen and Elise hug their families and

head to Steven Green and Mason Blinson — in this time I managed to lose track of Jason May. Unlike the other candidates, I chose to sit in the grandstands on the first row between my mom and dad so I could see everything. The next thing I knew, I heard Sue Rowland gasp. I turned to find Jason standing behind me with his jacket in one hand and a crooked smile on his face. Since that day, my family that I once thought had dwindled to three has grown to well over 3,000. In three years, I’ve traveled to more states than I can count on my fingers, along with making memories with friends that soon became family. These travels have taken me to Colorado State University, where I sat in the coolest Hereford hide leather chairs, the Harvest II Gala in beautiful Sonoma, Calif., and my first baseball game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. It has been said that the Hereford family is the best of all the breeds. I may be a bit biased, but I couldn’t agree more. In the past three years, many of you have shaped me into the person I am. You have given encouragement, advice, meals, hugs and so much more. I will forever be grateful to you all. There used to be a time when I could walk my heifer to and from the wash rack and only talk to whoever was washing with me that day. Now I can’t even imagine walking down my aisle without being stopped at least once. Thank you to the entire NJHA membership and your families for including me in your fold and taking me as I am. My biggest thank-you goes to my parents for making sure I always have everything I need — including going back to the hotel to get my clothes, caring for my Hereford.org


heifers, dealing with me as I travel and everything else in between. To Cliff and Pat Copeland, Andy and Betsy Beck, Max Stotz and Kyle Pérez — thank you for always taking my calls as I sought advice on one topic or another. A special thank you to Betsy for the care packages. To Amy and Bailey, thank

you for being the literal and proverbial backbone, not to mention our fearless leaders. We sure couldn’t have made all of our improvements to the NJHA without you. To all the ”boardies” I’ve had the pleasure of serving with, we’ve had a heck of a ride, and I wouldn’t dream

of having gone through this journey with any other group. To those members who are thinking about running for the board, do it! It is a life altering experience.

Passion, Dedication, Tradition: Redefined by Mason Blinson

Passion, dedication and tradition are the three words I used when campaigning for the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors. I grew up with a passion to show Hereford cattle, a dedication to work hard each and every day to have success in the showring, and a great family with tradition in the Hereford industry. These three words have been my driving force and have now developed a new meaning in my life because of the NJHA board of directors. I have a strong passion for showing Hereford cattle because of the opportunities and resources it provides. A passion for showing livestock means so much more than leading an animal into a ring. Showing livestock has introduced me to leadership, advocacy, industry knowledge and much more. I have become a better leader in my role as an NJHA director. Being on the junior board has provided me the opportunity to help youth, as did those that served before me, and allowed me to be a leader and spokesperson for the Hereford breed. Before I was on the board, my purpose was to be like the people in the maroon jackets and to have juniors look up to me the way I looked up to the board. Now that I am on the board, my purpose is to reach the expectations and high standards I held for those on the board when I was younger. I have developed my passion for Hereford cattle into a passion for advocacy of the industry to our youth. Hereford.org

Hands down, the most rewarding thing about being on the NJHA board is getting the opportunity to work with juniors from all over the country. I have been able to interact with juniors in so many ways that would have been impossible without being on the NJHA board. It’s rewarding to see juniors in the barn working hard to get their cattle ready, leading them in the showring to show off all of their hard work and seeing them later in life as a close friend and part of the Hereford family. Serving as an NJHA director has allowed me the opportunity to gain responsibility and decision-making skills as I start to run my own events and to travel across the country. In addition, I gained confidence and knowledge by talking to established Hereford breeders. As I get more involved in the Hereford breed, I meet more producers and gain more mentors. I have learned so much from our amazing advisors: the McMillans; the Copelands; the Becks; Max Stotz; and Kyle Pérez; as well as Amy Cowan and Bailey Clanton as the boss ladies of the junior board. I am so thankful for these people, along with countless others in the Hereford industry, who have taken me in as part of their family and served as mentors throughout my junior years. Thanks to people in the industry for the opportunities I have been provided. I learn something new which I take home and utilize at every

show or Hereford event to which I go. I completely believe work behind the scenes is ten times more important than show day. This is something I have proven while on the board. So much goes into putting on a show and planning events for juniors. The important part is not how well you do on show day — it is the skills learned and memories made by each and every junior. Being on the NJHA board has made me a more driven, hardworking and dedicated person. I would not change that for anything. After three years of serving the NJHA and its growing membership, I hope to use the skills I have acquired and the people I have met along the way for my future role in the agriculture industry. Being a part of one of the largest youth livestock organizations in the country has provided countless opportunities. Since 2015, I have traveled the country alongside other Hereford juniors, who have become some of my closest friends, to promote the organization, to plan shows and conferences, and to educate youth about the Hereford breed. Along with my fellow retiring board members, I hope to have a positive impact and leave the NJHA better than we found it. Although our terms end in July at the 2018 Junior National Hereford Expo in Grand Island, Neb., where it all started, we are excited to take on a new role in the Hereford industry and to give back to the organization that has given us so much.

The Great American Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) Grill-off is sponsored with CHB. It awards creativity, the knowledge of CHB cuts and food safety. The NHW Heifer Award is a result of NHW securing a $1,500 credit from a Hereford breeder for a registered Hereford heifer to be awarded by a random drawing to an NJHA member. This year’s JNHE “All Aboard the Hereford Express” will be another grand event, but it will take many hands onboard. The NHW board of directors will be very busy at JNHE. We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer to help with our contests and/or our booth. Please send us an email if you are interested in helping at JNHE at nationalherefordwomen@gmail.com. We very much appreciate your support. NHW members believe the youth are our greatest asset, and we are so proud to work alongside the American Hereford Association, the HYFA, the NJHA and CHB to celebrate our youth. We look forward to seeing you in Grand Island! Hereford.org

363 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% for the CHB$ profit index.

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

The CHBS distinction is used to recognize 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 will be recognized. 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 363 sires recognized as CHB Sires follows.

CHB – Gaining Market Share

Retiring CHB President Jim Mickelson says the continued growth and success of the CHB program is all about the people behind the brand. by Christy Couch Lee

| May/June 2018

S

uccess isn’t based on one person or one action. It is the culmination of many hardworking, driven and focused individuals working together for the greater good. And according to retiring Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) President Jim Mickelson, Santa Rosa, Calif., that is exactly the scenario for his term on the CHB board of directors. His term has been marked by a multitude of staff changes and a revised marketing approach now focused on the consumer. These strategic marketing adjustments are leading the way to continued growth in the marketplace, and are ultimately laying the groundwork for a successful path for the future of the CHB brand. “We appreciate the support and direction Jim has provided for the brand,” says CHB Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Amari Seiferman. “His tremendous insight helped take the brand to the next level.”

The man behind the brand Mickelson and his family own and operate Sonoma Mountain Herefords, a registered Hereford operation that currently consists of 250 head of mother cows. In 2003 Sonoma Mountain Herefords got its start with the purchase of the remainder of the Kunde Herefords herd, which dated back to the 1940s. “My wife’s family had been producing cattle for more than 50 years, purchasing the Kunde herd really set our own cattle operation in motion,” Mickelson says. Jim and his wife, Marcia, oversee the operation, while their son, Bobby is in charge of day-to-day activities as the ranch’s herdsman. Jim and Marcia’s daughter, Jamie, is involved as well; she’s responsible for the show string and their branded beef product — Sonoma Mountain Beef Co. Bobby’s wife, Heidi, also helps when needed, along with their two sons, Weston and Carter, who are already showing enthusiasm toward cattle production. While not involved extensively in the showring, the Mickelson family shows cattle at local, regional and national shows including the Western Nugget Hereford show in Reno each year. The Mickelsons implement extensive use of artificial insemination (AI) to top national horned and polled Hereford sires, as well as execute an active embryo transfer program for both their spring and fall cow herds. Bulls are marketed each year as long yearlings or 2-year-olds in the ranch’s production sale, through which they market about 50 head each fall. Select bulls are consigned to the Red Bluff Bull Sale, where Sonoma Mountain has had several grand champion and reserve grand champion bulls. Hereford.org


The Mickelsons also market females to commercial and registered breeders throughout the western United States. Sonoma Mountain Herefords has been a Gold Total Performance Record (TPR™) Breeder for several years. In 2007 the operation was selected as the California Beef Cattle Improvement Association Seedstock Producer of the Year. To educate the public, the Mickelsons operate sustainable tours in conjunction with their winery operation so that the public can see firsthand how the cattle are raised, including during calving season. “We host farm-to-table events, and often pair Kunde wine with our daughter’s Sonoma Mountain Beef product,” Mickelson says. “We also have a video playing in our wine-tasting room, which shows not only the winery and vineyard operations, but also photos of Hereford cattle. The consuming public likes to feel good about the product they bring into their homes to feed their families, but they also want the knowledge that the producers take good care of their stock. Sustainability and compassionate animal practices is important in California, and we see this trend only continuing to gain in traction throughout the United States. It’s really worthwhile to educate our consumers.” Mickelson not only operates Sonoma Mountain Herefords but also serves on the Kunde Family Winery Board of Directors, and is president and chief operating officer of Jerry and Don’s Yager Pump and Well, a water well pump and drilling business, which operates throughout northern California — he purchased the business in 1984. Mickelson has served as the CaliforniaNevada Hereford Association president and was on the polled and horned merger committee for that association. He has been a junior advisor for the CaliforniaNevada Junior Hereford Association, currently serves on the Western States Hereford Association, and is a past director of the Sonoma Marin Fair. He has also been a member of the American Hereford Association nominating committee.

The Mickelsons market females to commercial breeders throughout the western United States.

The vision When Mickelson accepted the task of CHB president, his goals were simple: to see CHB become more strategic with marketing plans and continue to ensure its growth and success. “When I came in, CHB was struggling a bit from an organization and staffing standpoint,” he says. “But through these last three years, CHB is now focused. continued on page 38...

The staff knows exactly what should be done under the direction of Amari in order to ensure success of the brand. Under her leadership, the program has grown, and she has done a tremendous job of bringing on a talented staff to help her do just that.” The promotion of CHB has seen great advancements as well, Mickelson says. “The time and energy our staff puts into marketing and promoting CHB is amazing,” he says. “They’re on the road a lot, and they’re away from their homes and families a lot. It’s not easy to find people as dedicated as our staff is. We have a great team.”

Focused branding With strategic marketing of the brand, a new premium CHB website has been developed and launched. “The website has a new, updated premium look and functionality,” he says. “Its main job is to help market beef, as well as serve the breeders, who must get involved and demand the brand.” Mickelson says the enhanced packer relationships are among the greatest accomplishments of the organization during his time on the board. “Our packers are doing a great job for us, and Amari has worked to ensure we have a successful ongoing relationship with those companies,” he says. The development of the CHB Premium program has also brought great benefits to the CHB brand, Mickelson says. “With a premium package, it shows we aren’t just another product — we are a premium product,” he says.

“Also, ready-to-eat foods are in demand, as people don’t take the time to cook as they used to. The marketplace is definitely ready for our product, and we are definitely ready for it, too. We are right where we need to be.”

The role of the breeder The advancements made within the organization are beneficial. But the greatest promotion of the CHB brand occurs with the breeders, Mickelson says. “The new website is a great tool, but the strongest way for the brand to advance is by breeders communicating the benefits of their product — by getting out there, talking about CHB and demanding the brand,” he says. “Because of the way CHB is structured, we can’t afford to put a large staff into the marketplace, and that’s where breeders can help. When you’re out to eat in a restaurant, ask for CHB. When Marcia and I travel, we talk about wine and CHB to restauranteurs, wait staff and nearby patrons. Then, we drive people to the website to get people connected with CHB.” Mickelson says consumers trust those in production agriculture when they have the chance to visit face to face. “The more we talk to the consumer on a daily basis, the more trust and confidence we build,” he says. “When we’re traveling, shopping or enjoying a meal — stop and talk to the consuming public. They are your ultimate consumers. You have to eat it and sleep it and talk Hereford cattle with whomever you meet. We must tell our story. The more awareness we create, the more people will ask and seek out CHB products.”

Q&A with retiring Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) President Jim Mickelson Q: What has been the greatest challenge during your term as CHB president? A: Our greatest challenge is getting our premium product recognized in the marketplace. What we have to offer is a superior product — it’s unique, it’s wholesome and it’s produced by Hereford breeders who are passionate about Hereford cattle. Q: How would you summarize your tenure on the board and as president? A: As directors, we meet and give direction to the staff. Ultimately, the staff does the heavy work and makes it all happen. Our job is oversight. We have been fortunate to have good people on staff, and our goal is to bring great marketers and business-minded

people onto the board to give the staff the tools to go out into the marketplace and to position CHB as a premium product. Q: What do you see as the greatest strengths of the Hereford breed and its breeders, as a whole? A: The greatest strength of Hereford cattle is the longevity of the Hereford bull and the breed’s docility, as a whole. Our children are hearing impaired, and it means a great deal for them to be able to walk into a herd of Hereford cattle or bulls and not worry about them being out there. The product produced by these Hereford cattle — CHB — is second to none. CHB beef is tender and flavorful. It truly is a premium product.

Q: What do you see as the future of the CHB program? A: I see the potential for tremendous growth, but it will take more bodies in the field to do that. We used to market toward the commercial cattleman and the purebred breeder, and not as much toward the consumer. The biggest thing we have done in the past couple of years is change that marketing focus to the consumer. As we continue this strategic switch, we will need more cattle being certified into the CHB program. By marketing to the consumer, our hopes are that we will enhance the demand and change CHB from being a push brand to a strong pull brand in the premium beef arena. Going forward, purebred breeders and ranchers must get out and talk about CHB and the importance of it.

Great Product, Bold Flavor Certified Hereford Beef highlights Chef Jonathan Scinto’s unique cuisine. by Julie Mais

C

elebrity Chef and TV Personality Chef Jonathan Scinto’s culinary philosophy is product first, flavors second. Looking for a starring steak to enhance his competitive edge in the upcoming World Food Championships, Chef Jonathan is confident Certified Hereford Beef’s (CHB®) tenderness and flavor qualities can take him to the top. The Long Island, N.Y., native has had a love for experimenting in the kitchen since childhood. After graduating from the New York Institute of Technology, Chef Jonathan worked for several restaurants and was later hired by Post Perfect to work in its Catering & Client Services department, working with A-list clients. In October 2014, he auditioned for MasterChef on FOX and was picked as a contestant on Season 6 of the hit TV show. Making a name for himself as a TV personality, Chef Jonathan has also appeared on Food Network Chopped, Amazon Studios Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, ABC’s Quantico Season 2, FOX’s Blacklist: Redemption, Showtime’s Homeland Season 6 and News 12 Long Island Cooking Segments. He was also chosen by the Food Network and the Cooking Channel to compete on Rooftop Chopped and Iron Chef Showdown, hosted by Ted Allen and Alton Brown.

Experimenting with flavors

For the past two years, Chef Jonathan has focused on combining Italian rustic flavors and Asian influences to create his concept called “Itasian,” as seen on the Food Network several times. His culinary concept is unique to the business. “Italian and Asian are actually very similar in the rusticness and freshness,” he says. “They go together well and came about one day when I was experimenting with flavors.” Chef Jonathan says Itasian is not really a cuisine, but a flavor. “There’s certain dishes I’ll use with Itasian, but it’s really bringing different flavors and cultures together that most people don’t think will blend together.” CHB is a natural fit for his concept. “Using Certified Hereford Beef has been fantastic, because the cattle giving us the beef, creates a product so soft and luscious — the spices I use melt into the meat itself.” Hereford.org


In a sense, Chef Jonathan stumbled upon the CHB brand. “I learned about CHB when I was doing an internet research, but I knew about the cattle before because my father-in-law worked as a cowboy years ago.” He was looking for partners to work with for the World Food Championships — the largest competition in Food Sport, where the grand champions of previous years compete for a chance at winning more than $300,000 in prize money. “I had several wagyu companies reach out to me, but I really wasn’t looking to use that product because so many chefs are using that now,” he explains. “I wanted something completely different to use in my competition, and that’s when I came across CHB. I was looking for “steak” in the internet search and the CHB brand is what popped up.” After conversations with CHB team members, Chef Jonathan tried a CHB filet. “I thought, and this is my personal preference, the filet they sent me was 10-times better than wagyu. It had better texture, flavor and was luscious.” He shared the steak with his wife who he says is a steak eater. “She couldn’t believe how tender it was. She didn’t use a knife. It was ‘forkcutable.’ We could use our fork to cut it —that’s how soft and tender the filet was.” Next, he tried a CHB Choice New York strip steak. “The Choice steak was even more tender and delicious,” he says. In November, Chef Jonathan will compete for the third time in the World Food Championships and his first time entering the steak competition. “I won the people’s choice award last year in the ‘Taste of America Challenge,’ and this year I wanted to do steak, the toughest category,” he says. “It’s going to be very tough this year with 100 competitors in the category and only 10 people advancing to the next round, but I’m bringing an amazing product, so I’ll have a leg up. We’ll be talking in November about a first-place win.”

Product and flavor Other than competing, Chef Jonathan says he often prepares beef for his clients. “I have a lot of clients that love beef and steak and look for highest grade meat possible,” he says. “However, I want to work with not only A-list clients, but people who aren’t educated on different kinds of beef.” Chef Jonathan has numerous tasting events planned for 2018, focusing on his Itasian flavors. He will be participating at BrunchCon in Brooklyn and is planning to serve more than 2,000 steak and egg samples. “My goal is to educate people on my flavors and the products I use, and really highlight CHB,” he says. “I want to give people the opportunity to try the best quality meat out there and have a chance Hereford.org

to make purchases down the line. I want to get people’s minds flowing about flavor and product.” When preparing a dish for clients, Chef Jonathan says what’s important is the product and what it can do and the flavor used on that product. “For example, if you know what a Choice steak can do, you want to highlight the meat and not overdress it or over season it,” he says. “It’s good to be playful and creative, but I look to showcase product. My Itasian cuisine uses different flavor profiles, and my clients have a journey through culinary experiences. That’s what’s great about CHB — it’s tender and the flavor is just absorbed in. I was blown away, and knew I was onto something and that my clients would love this product.” Focusing on product first and flavor second is what Chef Jonathan does in his own kitchen, as well. “People mistake that as a chef I always eat 5-star cuisine. I like what you like eating. When I cook at home, I eat steak often and enjoy craft hamburgers and bacon.” He adds, “People are surprised — they think I’m eating caviar and imported lobster tail. That’s how I cook for my clients, but at home I cook for seven people which includes my wife, three daughters, dad and my brother, and we like to have home cooked comfort food as a family.”

Behind the CHB brand Local farmers and ranchers behind the CHB brand is what Chef Jonathan appreciates. “When I looked at what the CHB brand is about, I was happy that it’s local farmers and ranchers,” he says. “That’s what I focus on, working in the local community, and I like to shop local markets — that’s what CHB is about.” Chef Jonathan will be working with the CHB brand this year, showcasing CHB product during events and on social media. You can also find him sharing recipes and cooking tips on the CertifiedHerefordBeef.com blog. “We are excited to partner with Chef Jonathan,” says Amari Seiferman, CHB chief operating officer and general manager. “His culinary philosophy of product first and flavor second, along with his blend of rustic and fresh, pairs well with our highquality, great-tasting beef.” Chef Jonathan adds, “It’s really been a blessing to work with such a great product. I’ve had a blast with it and it has been a great experience.” May/June 2018 |

utrition headlines sweep across online and print media throughout the United States on a daily basis. Thousands of dietitians and healthcare professionals consult with Americans each day on the most effective way to consume well-balanced meals. These actions are answers to the call from consumers to learn more about their food. Today, American consumers are more concerned with their nutrition than ever before. The trend of nutrition-conscious consumers aiming to utilize products that promote strong bodies and healthy minds is not going anywhere. Fortunately for the beef industry, 88% of consumers agree eating lean meat is part of eating in a heart-healthy way. According to registered dietitian Shalene McNeill, Ph.D., RD., executive director of human nutrition research for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), consumers’ desire to identify quality protein sources has led to an increase in consumers viewing beef as a good balance of taste and nutrition. “But today’s consumer is looking for more immediate reasons beef is food for health,” she explains. “They want to hear more about the practical health payoff beef provides.” As with any industry, consumer demand has led to research and marketing efforts to educate consumers on how valuable beef is at their dinner table from a nutrition and enjoyment standpoint. Further, these efforts are aiding in the overarching mission to create enough demand for beef that producers see an increase in their bottom line.

Historically, a sample of the population has held beef in a negative light when making purchasing decisions. In fact, McNeill says concerns about nutrition account for five of the top six reasons consumers eat less beef. Those concerns span from cholesterol and fat content to a perception that other proteins seem more healthful. In response to the misconception, NCBA, on behalf of the Beef Checkoff, as well as several other entities, has put an increased emphasis on educating healthcare professionals, dietitians and the general public on today’s leaner beef supply, the essential nutrients found in beef and the science supporting its role in a healthful diet. “I think we’re at a breakthrough time on nutrition, because we’re starting to see people rethink the role of beef in health,” McNeill says. “Not only do we have many lean beef choices today, there’s also been a lot of scientific discussion that saturated fat may not be as bad as we once thought it was.” Hereford.org

Additionally, more research has been dedicated to understanding beef’s benefits to heart health and then sharing the science with health professionals, so they are able to develop sciencebased recommendations in support of beef in a healthful diet. In fact, McNeill says the science in which the Checkoff has invested for more than a decade is now promoting conversations in the general public about how protein-rich food, like beef, enhances muscle health and leads to stronger bodies later in life. “People are beginning to notice how important it is to maintain your strength and muscle as you age,” she says, “and this is an opportunity for including beef in the diet because of (its) high quality protein and nutrients.” Since consumers are beginning to keep their strength at the forefront, McNeill says this is the ideal time for the industry to talk to consumers more about the nutrients beef can provide. Beef is known for containing 10 of the essential nutrients needed for a healthful diet: iron, choline, protein, selenium, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, zinc, phosphorus, niacin and riboflavin. However, the most notable of those 10 is protein. Remember, protein is one of the biggest components of enhancing muscle health. Many dietitians are now recommending people eat roughly 25-30 grams of protein per meal in a healthful diet. There are several ways for consumers to get their adequate protein, but research by the Beef Checkoff reveals beef is the healthful — and delicious — way to do so. To provide a comparison, a person would have to eat 6½ tablespoons of peanut butter, a common go-to for many, at 613 calories to achieve 25 grams of protein. In contrast, three ounces of beef at 173 calories provides the 25 grams of protein needed in a meal — so beef can be a real calorie saver. “The fact is, throughout life’s stages, beef provides essential nutrients for growth and development, the right protein mix for building and repairing muscle, nutrients to prevent fatigue and is a smart choice for weight management,” McNeill explains. “Beef gives people the strength they need through

...Capturing Maximum Value in Beef Cattle Production continued from page 45

The first National Beef Quality audit analyzed four of the economic gain categories, but industry researchers have never analyzed the other seven until now. A team of more than 16 experts from all facets of the industry worked on this project and calculated the numerical value associated with all 11 categories.

On the farm Reproductive performance is the first economic gain category explored in the original study. Lambert found 80% of all U.S. beef cows and heifers weaned a calf in 1989, and he reasoned that percentage could increase to 95%. Considering a 15% increase, the industry could experience a $2.6 million paycheck. The industry has not yet met Lambert’s expectation, but experts say the industry has increased to 85% of cows or heifers weaning calves to date. “The reason we were able to go to 85% was because we had fewer open cows, despite the fact that both California and Texas have had droughts in that period of time,” Smith says. “We have been able to capitalize on that.” Smith says in order to continue increasing the percentage value, purebred and commercial operations should practice selective breeding. Commercial producers should also capitalize on the opportunity to maximize hybrid vigor via heterosis in crossbreeding. The next economic gain category identified was death loss. Lambert noted 6.5% of the calves born died between birth and packing. “He is predicating this on the cost of keeping a cow for a year, even though she didn’t produce something that you could sell in the end,” Smith says. Additionally, Lambert included the monetary value of time and labor associated with the amount of time the calf did survive. Unfortunately, today’s study indicated the industry has increased in death loss — also increasing economic loss there. Smith says the death loss is the result of dystocia, environmental

conditions, Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) or occurances during the stocking or feedlot stage. In 1991 Lambert noted weaning weight as slightly less than 500 lb., predicated on a target of 550 lb. Experts today note the national average as 555 lb. However, Smith warns this number was challenging to quantify because of the differences in cattle size from the West to the East Coast. He says producers should recognize target weaning weight is achieved 70% by genetics and 30% by management. “We have to have better individual animal identification and record keeping,” he says. “It is the only way we can really improve and know where we are.” Looking back, multiple processing was also a challenge in the industry. “Cattle would pass through so many hands that they were being processed up to 12 times,” Smith says. Lambert estimated lightweight calves were getting processed one and a half times more than needed, and the average number of times beef calves were processed was 3.6 times. Smith says the number of times cattle need to be processed depends heavily on the way they are going through the system. Further, he says most of the cost is related to the chute because of the potential for problems like stress or injury. “Preconditioning has helped in this category because it improves the immune capabilities of the calves,” Smith explains. “The other thing that has helped a whole bunch is better history.” For example, as cattle pass through hands, people have been better about noting the prior health regimen to avoid redundancy.

Feedlot to harvest

Lambert’s study noted 7 lb. of feed was needed to achieve 1 lb. of gain. He challenged the industry to improve by a half pound to experience drastic savings — purely from the tons of feed that are fed in order to get cattle to a slaughter weight. Experts say the industry has reacted to the call, as it takes approximately 5.92 lb. of feed per pound of gain today. Interestingly enough, while Potential gain (millions), annually, for the beef industry weaning weight is influenced 70% by genetics and 30% by Reproductive performance $5,520 Outlier cattle $1,386 management, experts agree feed efficiency is not the same Death loss 2,703 Excess fat 8,710 ratio. Smith says, “In this case, Hot-iron branding 36 Management 714 our experts said, ‘If in fact you Weaning weight 56 Retail shrink 1,649 have improved feed efficiency, it was 2% genetic and 98% Multiple processing 419 Out-of-stock 762 management.’” Feed efficiency 758 TOTAL $22,714 Management practices are not focused on feed alone.

branding. Smith says Lambert understood the need for branding at the rancher level, but he did not agree with branding as part of a state regulation in the feedlot.

Forecasting for the Future

Steady demand for beef domestically and internationally needed to balance higher beef supplies in 2018. by Kayla Jennings

C

alves are on the ground and many ranchers are soon to begin weaning. It won’t be long before fall hits and producers begin looking for the best avenue to market their calves. This time of year lends itself to much thought regarding the cattle market forecast for 2018. Fortunately for cattle producers across the country, the state of the cattle market has been optimistic, but that outlook could change in 2018. Katelyn McCullock, senior economist at the Livestock Marketing Information Center, Lakewood, Colo., says strong demand for beef domestically and secure beef sales overseas provide a positive outlook for the beef industry moving forward. “We’ve seen more cattle numbers, which have produced more beef overall,” McCullock explains. “But the good news is, on the demand side, we’ve seen also pretty strong domestic and export growth to support those heavier beef production numbers.” However, in recent weeks, announcements levying tariffs and the potential for a trade war have left agriculture on shaky ground.

| May/June 2018

Current economy For the last couple of years, the cattle industry has been in an expansionary phase, and McCullock indicates that trend is beginning to slow. “We’ve been adding cattle numbers year-over-year for quite a few years,” she explains. “Over the last two years, we’ve seen that cycle slow down, so we’ve added less numbers than we have the year before, but it’s still been a year-over-year increase.” As of late, there has been a steady increase of heifers in the feedlot, however. That shift suggests those females are not retained to produce a larger calf crop in 2019. Even though the expansion is slowing, there has still been a steady increase in cattle numbers with a strong market to support that increase. Reflecting on 2017, McCullock states export sales were near $9 billion — nearly displacing the record year seen in 2014. “We’ve really seen this number just grow considerably over time,” she notes, “which has been positive for the beef sector overall.” To date, more animals are on feed and moving through the system. “But some of the finer points Hereford.org


here are when those come to market,” McCullock notes. “Because we’ve seen a lot higher placements last year, this year there’s a high number of cattle on feed. Feedlots have continued to purchase cattle fairly aggressively, which have supported those prices year-over-year.” However, after analyzing reports in recent weeks, McCullock says those numbers are weakening slightly. Those reports, in tandem with high placement numbers, spur questions regarding when the cattle numbers coming into those feedlots dry up and when that shift will occur. Additionally, McCullock notes this year’s calf crop and imports affect placements — revealing when the industry will see that placement The industry has witnessed a higher placement of cattle on feed, but the feedlots have continued to purchase cattle aggressively to support prices year-over-year. number change direction. Conversely, feedlots are but, ultimately, I think the domestic economy is maintaining steady profit on a per-head basis. optimistic about the future.” She says consumers McCullock says it will be interesting to see how are not necessarily pinching pennies today like various factors like fed-cattle prices and feeder they may have been several years ago. cattle prices affect the decisions they make as far as “We’re not in a recessionary mode,” she buying cattle later this year. notes. “That’s a positive sign for beef.” Because “Now all of this, too, hinges of course on how of competitive pricing and a steady economy, much beef we can move through retail channels, McCullock notes the increase in beef featured or through wholesale markets, or overseas,” she in restaurants and beef becoming more popular emphasizes. Trade is vitally important to the beef in those settings with consumers. These factors industry, and in the wake of China’s second round continued on page 50... of retaliatory tariffs, which included beef products, the beef industry is concerned about the trade landscape and what other countries might target in beef products.

Emerging markets Strong domestic demand has been favorable for the industry over the last year, and McCullock foresees this trend remaining strong in 2018. “[In 2017] we ate more beef than the year before,” she says. “Right now, I believe we are expecting another year-over-year increase in the amount of beef that the U.S. consumer will eat.” This consumer demand is driven by a multitude of factors including recent nutrition trends supporting beef in a healthy diet and more competitive pricing. McCullock says there are a lot of options for consumers at the supermarket today. Yet, when the options for protein are all reasonably priced, the price factor opens the meat case up as a more competitive player in that scene. “I think competitive pricing definitely plays a role, particularly, because in the last decade there have been times when beef was pretty expensive, relative to pork and chicken,” she explains. “This is putting beef on a more level playing field, Hereford.org

promote a ripple effect that only elevates potential profits for the beef industry. “What the beef industry hinges on is a continued strong demand from both the domestic consumer, and the export market,” she notes. “The world economy so far seems pretty favorable.” McCullock does note recent talk regarding trade may also be a factor that affects the beef industry from an international perspective, but it is too soon in the conversation to definitively make a conclusion there. Thinking from an international perspective, it is important to consider consumer confidence in the economy. McCullock says consumer confidence provides an indicator of what consumers are projected to do with regard to purchasing decisions. It is important to remember consumer confidence is

relative to the entire economy, and it is not specific to agriculture. However, those values indicate the direction of spending — including that on agricultural goods like beef, as well. “Japan, Korea and China are also major buyers of agricultural commodities for the U.S., and you can see that compared to that North American chart (Figure 1), Asian consumer confidence (Figure 2) is really quite strong,” McCullock notes. That statistic is especially valuable today as the China market recently opened for American beef. Historically, the Chinese have not eaten as much beef as the American consumer has. However, the sheer size of the market is what brings forth excitement for the beef industry. “They buy quite a bit of beef from Australia, which tends to be more grass-fed,” McCullock explains. “So bringing on this grain-fed type product into Figure 1: North American consumer confidence index that market and carving out a piece Amplitude adjusted, Long-term average = 100, Jan. 2014-Feb. 2018 Canada of that market is really exciting and United States something that potentially could, 101 over a longer period of time, be very important to the beef industry.” Considering the market is so 100 new, McCullock says the industry will be working toward gaining market share and marketing toward 99 that population in the upcoming months. “I think this opportunity is something very exciting for the beef Mexico 98 industry and is something that we’ll continue to watch moving forward,” she says. 97 Stepping back and viewing all the factors at play in the coming year, McCullock foresees an increase in 2014 April July Oct. 2015 April July Oct. 2016 April July Oct. 2017 April July Oct. 2018 production and is hopeful for the demand to keep up with production.

“All Aboard the Hereford Express” is the theme for the 2018 JNHE July 1-7, 2018. by Kindra Gordon, photos courtesy of VisitGrandIsland.com

A

grand event is being planned July 1-7, 2018, in Grand Island, Neb., when Hereford youth and their families will be welcomed to the city for the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). Fonner Park, which has earned acclaim as one of the

best livestock show facilities in the country and annually hosts the Nebraska State Fair, will serve as headquarters for the event. As a tribute to Grand Island’s history as a railroad town, the theme for this year’s JNHE is “All Aboard the Hereford Express.” The summer showcase is expected to bring more than 900 Hereford youth from 40 states to the event to exhibit 1,500 head of Hereford cattle and to participate in leadership and educational competitions. While it’s an action-packed week of showing, judging, competing and learning, there’s always time for finding some local fun and fantastic food, as well. Here are six Grand Island highlights:

Relive history

Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer and Burlington Northern Santa Fe having rail lines that run through the city. The railroad first reached this Nebraska town in July 1866. Today, on average, 140 trains pass through Grand Island every 24-hours — most are hauling coal out of Wyoming. Grand Island’s train-viewing hotspot is known as The Diamond, where the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks cross over the Union Pacific tracks. It’s a neat spot to observe and to photograph the large number of freight trains. The Diamond is located east of downtown at 3rd and Oak Streets. To see an authentic train depot, Burlington Station (605 N. Plum St.) is the city’s 1911 Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Depot. It was renovated by the Hall County Historical Society, and now serves as a reception hall and houses an Hereford.org

Grand Island’s Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer (stuhrmuseum.org) is a living history museum that has been called “one of the top 10 places to relive America’s past.” Spread across 200 acres, the museum depicts late 19th-century life on the prairie via several historic buildings and many costumed merchants and townspeople reenacting the bygone era. Start your tour at the main building, which introduces visitors to the inspiring story of the men and women who settled the Great Plains, a museum shop and contains two art galleries. Next, head to the 40-acre Railroad Town, which is a recreated 1880’s prairie town modeled after the communities that developed along the Union Pacific Railroad’s rights-of-way. Complete with 60 shops, homestead buildings — many of which have been moved to the site, restored and decorated with period furnishings. Railroad Town features a train depot and a bustling business district. Costumed merchants and housewives, as well as a blacksmith and a marshal, stroll the grounds relating their stories and memories of life on the plains. Visitors can also grab a meal at the Silver Dollar Café and marvel at the antique farm machinery and auto exhibits in many of the buildings.

Visit the cranes Another signature experience unique to Grand Island is the migration of Sandhill cranes through the area each spring. The Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center (cranetrust.org, located south of I-80 Exit 305) is the place to view cranes up close. While the migration activities peak in March, summer visitors can still learn all about cranes and other natural wonders at the spacious Interpretive Center, which houses exhibits on cranes, waterfowl, endangered species, prairie grasses, prehistoric wildlife, wetlands and more. Surrounding the Crane Trust Center, ten miles of mowed

How Grand Island got its name The Platte River, which flows across the lower one-third of Nebraska, is the longest braided river in North America, made up of numerous small channels splitting off and then rejoining one another. It is formed by the confluence of the North Platte River and the South Platte River in western Nebraska. The city of Grand Island was long ago named for a long, narrow island in the Platte River. It was called La Grande Isle by French fur traders in the 1800s.

Island Oasis

Raising Nebraska

grassland trails crisscross the prairie for runners and walkers of all ages to experience the unique tall grass prairie and riverine habitat and to explore Nebraska’s historic Shoemaker Island. The center also features a butterfly garden (a great place to relax or enjoy a picnic) and a small herd of bison. An art gallery and a gift shop are located inside the visitor center.

Entertain the kids On a hot July day, nothing beats Grand Island’s waterpark, Island Oasis, which offers six acres of fun

Great Platte River Road Archway

More to see Visitors to Nebraska may enjoy visiting the Great Platte River Road Archway in nearby Kearney. The structure was built over Interstate 80 and pays tribute to the pioneers who passed through Nebraska on their way west. The museum also features stories of the building of the railroad, the creation of the first transcontinental road and today’s modern transportation system. And, did you know that Hastings, Nebraska, was the birthplace of Kool-Aid? You’ll learn more about that and other fascinating facts at the Hastings Museum, which also includes a large domed planetarium and a theatre with a 70-foot-wide screen.

in the sun. Kids can ride the waves in the 350,000-gallon wave pool or relax along the 750-foot lazy river. For thrill seekers, there are two six-story, high-speed slides and four giant 150-foot slides. Youngsters can splash around in the spraying fountains and on the child-size otter slide. Other amenities include an area for sand volleyball and concessions for snacks. It is open at noon daily, located at 321 E. Fonner Park Rd. In Stolley Park, Kids Kingdom is a 28,000-square-foot themed playground featuring a castle, pirate ship, Viking ship, slides, swings and an obstacle course. The park also offers a gardensize railroad line that circles the park. The Sweet Tooth Shop offers concessions and train souvenirs. Older kids may enjoy the disc golf course, basketball court, tennis court and baseball field. Also in Grand Island, Skate Island offers roller skating and miniature golf.

Learn about Nebraska agriculture You don’t even have to leave the Fonner Park grounds to take a little side trip and learn more about Nebraska agriculture at the Raising Nebraska exhibit. Open year-round, this 25,000-square-foot exhibit greets visitors with a full-size section of a center irrigation pivot. The exhibit debuted at the 2014 Nebraska State Fair and is

designed to teach visitors about the state’s agriculture industry — from the manufacturing of pivots, tractors, and combines, to the food grown to feed the world. The Agri-House display surprises a lot of people by showcasing the many different products that are a result of agriculture. There are also the Grain Bin Theatre, showing short films about agriculture across Nebraska; the Combine Ride, where people can sit in a cab and feel what it’s like to harvest corn; and several interactive kiosks that make learning fun.

Find food and shopping For unique shopping and dining, head to Grand Island’s historic downtown, dubbed Railside. Along Third Street, an array of antique stores and boutiques can be found amidst many great refurbished architectural buildings. Fun downtown dining spots include The Chicken Coop — a combination sports bar and microbrewery — McKinney’s Irish Pub, Sin City Grill and for coffee or lunch — and especially dessert — The Chocolate Bar. Additionally, the Texas T-Bone Steakhouse (at 1201 S. Locust St.) ranks first on TripAdvisor for Grand Island restaurants.

2018 JNHE Judges Owned heifers Scott Schaake, Westmoreland, Kan., was raised on a cow-calf ranch and row crop operation near Lawrence, Kan. He graduated from Kansas State University (K-State) in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in animal sciences and industry. He earned his master’s degree at Clemson University and his doctorate at the University of Kentucky, specializing in meat science. Schaake is an associate professor at K-State and is involved in teaching Foundations in Animal Science, Introductory Animal Science Lab, Livestock and Meat Evaluation, and advising students. He served as the coach of the K-State livestock judging team from 1992 to 2013. His teams won five national championships during his tenure. Schaake has judged livestock shows in 32 states, Canada, South America and Mexico. His family includes wife, Kandi, and their sons, Shane and daughter-in-law Melissa, and Shilo.

Owned heifers associate John Mrozinski, Marion, Kan., grew up on a sheep operation in northwest Indiana. Mrozinski attended Butler Community College, was a member of the 2006 National Champion Livestock Judging Team and was named an All-American. He then transferred to K-State where he was a member of the reserve national champion team, individually winning competitions at the National Western Stock Show and the American Royal, and was a corecipient of the F.W.

• 7193E was the cover bull and leadoff bull in our 2018 Sale. He is an exciting son of the $130,000 5110C Cooper bull. The more you study this bull, the more you will like him. He is soft made, deep flanked, big belled, extra thick, well-marked, and very correct in his structure. Three different maternal brothers were used in Holden’s herd last year, and a son out of a maternal sister was retained this year. We think a lot of this cow family and all the functional traits it brings to the table. 7193E also brings in the great 055X cow from Cooper’s. He is a front pasture, all around herd sire that is destined to be a breed improver.

Avoiding Grass Tetany Tips and tricks to minimize the risk of grass tetany in your herd. by Heather Smith Thomas

A

nnual death loss from grass tetany costs stockmen millions of dollars, but the cause has been poorly understood. This problem affects mature cattle grazing lush forage after weather changes such as freezing early spring pastures or sudden growth after rainfall following drought. Grass tetany is also referenced as grass staggers, milk tetany, lactation tetany, winter tetany, wheat pasture poisoning, crested wheatgrass poisoning or barley poisoning. The disease has been associated with magnesium deficiency, calcium deficiency (“milk fever”) and excess potassium in the blood of affected animals. During cool, wet conditions or regrowth of plants after frost or drought damage, sodium levels in certain forage plants plummet, while nitrogen and potassium levels spike. A high level of potassium in eye fluid is common in deceased cattle. Recommended prevention has been supplemental dietary magnesium. Standard treatment has been to give affected cows oral and/or intravenous magnesium.

Traditional treatment After examining cattle lost in 2001, following spring frosts in the Midwestern U.S. and analyzing the pastures, Thomas Swerckzek, DVM, Ph.D., Lexington, Ky., found clues about the cause and prevention of grass tetany. “When I first came to Kentucky in 1969, people were trying to prevent it by feeding more magnesium,” he says. “Cattle wouldn’t eat this mineral free choice, however, because it’s bitter. So farmers mixed it with corn or other feed.” He recalls each spring farmers were advised to get magnesium into their cattle when pastures were growing fastest, but this effort did not work well. Then, nutritionists told the farmers they should start providing magnesium four to five weeks before peak pasture growth. When using magnesium continued to fail, nutritionists advised yearround supplement beginning the 1980s. Theoretically, cattle would store this magnesium in their bones and could pull it out of bone storage when blood levels dropped due to sudden pasture changes. As a veterinary pathologist, Swerczek did diagnostic necropsies

on livestock until the early 1970s, before working as an equine diagnostic research pathologist. In 1986 he continued his necropsy research on all classes of livestock. When he resumed doing necropsies on cattle at that time, he was shocked to see how much worse the grass tetany situation had become. “The dead cattle were arriving at our lab in a wasted condition I’d never seen before,” he recalls. “When I’d stopped doing cattle necropsies in 1971, the dead cattle were in good shape.” He says by 1995 he started seeing adult cattle with salmonellosis, coccidiosis and other calfhood diseases. This influx of disease did not make sense, so Swerczek began looking at diets and mineral mixes since they were what had changed over the years. He collaborated with a bovine veterinarian, William McCaw, DVM, who was working with several purebred herds trying to find answers. “He thought there was something related to diet that was causing wasting and opportunistic diseases,” Swerczek says. “We asked several producers if they’d be willing to stop feeding

minerals awhile, to try to figure this out. Mineral feeding was so ingrained in their idea about proper management that they thought the cattle would die without magnesium to prevent grass tetany.” Some agreed to do it, however, since they were losing cattle anyway. When Swerczek started looking at herds throughout the state, he found a farm with very healthy HerefordSimmental crossbreds that all looked like show cattle. The owner was feeding natural mineralized loose white salt and a trace mineral salt that contained 99% salt with no supplemental magnesium. “Most farmers in that area adjacent to this farm were feeding mineral mixes and salt-protein/ mineral blocks instead of adequate loose salt,” he recalls. “Most of the protein-mineral mixes only contained 18% salt or less.” Those cattle were overeating the protein-mineral mixtures in search of additional salt. He says all of those cattle were showing signs of poor health and wasting, typically seen with sodium deficiency and different forms of mineral toxicity. The farmer with the crossbred cattle wasn’t feeding any supplemental magnesium, and his cattle were all in excellent health and body condition. “He’d been in the cattle business more than 40 years and hadn’t ever had a case of grass tetany, while grass tetany was endemic on near-by farms,” Swerczek explains. “This was a hint that maybe adequate salt was necessary to prevent grass tetany, rather than supplemental magnesium.”

Turning point Later, Swerczek got several herds off the mineral mix, and they quickly started to turn around. Most of the cows had been suffering from diarrhea, wasting away, but within 24 to 48, hours they improved after receiving plain loose salt instead of mineral. He recalls massive losses in Kentucky one year due to an unusual winter with many warm Hereford.org

spells. Grass and clover grew early, and there was a hard freeze in April. He remembers cattle going down by the thousands with grass tetany and bloat. People were using bloat blocks, but it didn’t help. He says cattle were actually dying while eating those because they didn’t have salt. “The reason cows go down with grass tetany is that they are short on magnesium and calcium, but I didn’t know why salt worked,” he explains. In an effort to answer that question, Lush green grass often lends itself to an increased risk he used horses as a research of grass tetany. model because they also suffer get rid of the nitrate. This process nitrate toxicity when grazing depletes the body, and the cow frost-damaged pastures, and goes down. nitrate is involved with magnesium “If there’s enough salt available, deficiency — but horses don’t get the body can grab onto the sodium the tetany syndrome.

acute bloating when adequate loose salt was available,” Swerczek says. “A similar finding in New Zealand was observed in sheep grazing pastures high in potassium and low in sodium. Sheep grazing pastures with adequate sodium were unaffected.”

Additional research

Many cattle suffer from grass tetany because they are sodium starved, so increasing salt in their diet is critical.

normal range, but when it drops lower, there are only a few hours before the animal dies. “If you feed salt, however, and the animals eat it, they’ll be fine — as long as they have plenty of water,” Swerczek says. He and McGraw wrote a paper about their findings. They mentioned the episode of late frosts and freezes the in late spring of 2001, which affected pasture forages. During this period, they found more cases of grass tetany and acute bloat in cattle. “These cows were grazing on pastures with abundant clover,” he recalls. “Cattle were dying of acute bloat, consistent with rumen tympany. This type of bloat was not the legume ‘frothy bloat,’ but it was related to gastrointestinal atony [lack of muscle tone or energy; inability to contract and move].” The development of this particular bloat appears similar to the grass tetany syndrome because magnesium and calcium are depleted in the blood due to high nitrate, which disturbs muscular tissues of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Magnesium and calcium are critical for muscular tissues, and when a deficiency exists, atony of the GI tract occurs. This causes the tract to become more prone to torsions and gas formation. Local bovine practitioners reported that surfactants, commonly used to prevent legume frothy bloat, were unsuccessful in resolving the bloat. “We found that cattle did not succumb to

Grass tetany syndrome was first documented in 1930 in Great Britain, and some of the same observations were made then. “It’s like I’m rediscovering the wheel, because everything I’m saying was also seen by the British and Europeans,” Swerczek says. “They noticed, also, that salt worked to prevent it, but no one had put it all together.” Swerczek says a comprehensive review of literature on grass tetany substantiates McGraw and his findings. McGraw found that sodium is an important factor and confirms their finding that high levels of potassium and nitrogen in pastures and feedstuffs are likely inducing a sodium deficiency along with a mineral and electrolyte imbalance. Workers in Holland noted intensively managed fertilized pastures suppressed sodium in forages that were high in potassium and nitrogen. Cows grazing these pastures showed signs of sodium deficiency. Workers in New Zealand noted increased potassium in forage decreased the uptake of sodium in pasture grasses and legumes. After frosts and freezes, potassium increases in pasture forages. “Damaged pastures after frost and freezing decrease the uptake of sodium,” he explains. “It appears that magnesium is not affected by frosts and freezes.” In the 1950s researchers in Europe reported when pasture forages were fertilized with high potassium and nitrogen, there was a dramatic incidence of grass tetany. During the same time period, there was great interest in intensive grazing. Consequently, Swerczek says, farmers in Europe heavily fertilized their pastures with potassium and nitrogen. In the spring, researchers observed a remarkable increase of grass tetany. It appeared that when only magnesium was increased in

the diet, the cattle with grass tetany did not respond. Interestingly, these workers also considered that cattle may experience a sodium deficiency after pastures were fertilized with potassium and nitrogen. The British researchers decided to treat affected cattle herds with adequate salt and not with mineral mixes or any additional magnesium. “The results were immediate and the cases of grass tetany for the most part disappeared,” he notes. “Not surprisingly, the same results observed by those British workers 60 years earlier were consistent with our findings in affected cattle herds grazing grass pastures with abundant legumes, or pastures recently fertilized with nitrogen.” British workers later confirmed that pasture forages fertilized with high potassium and nitrogen did indeed suppress the uptake of sodium. They also observed an immediate increase in milk production in cattle that were not fed additional magnesium but were given adequate sodium. They recommended to dairymen whose cattle were affected with grass tetany to first change their fertilizer program before adding additional magnesium to pastures and to the diet. “Grass tetany syndrome should be called nitrate toxicity/salt deficiency leading to low magnesium and low calcium,” he says. “When I went through all the literature, worldwide, I never found a single article where researchers were able to experimentally produce grass tetany — except when they elevated the nitrates.” Grass tetany occurs frequently in the eastern half of the U.S. and some other regions because of frequently changing weather conditions. Grass grows for a while during winter, and then weather turns cold again. Because Missouri has the same problems, he wrote to professor Dale Blevins at the University of Missouri and suggested Blevins try to figure out what might be going on with this condition. When the next catastrophic weather episode occurred in 2007, with a similar change, Blevins had his graduate students analyze the grass — mostly fast-growing tall fescue — to see Hereford.org


what changes occurred during the frost. He wrote an article linking salt deficiency and grass tetany. Blevins stated the outbreak of grass tetany that followed the cold weather in April 2007 was not a result of low dietary magnesium but rather impaired magnesium absorption by the grazing animals. Since magnesium absorption from the rumen is dependent upon sodium, the sodium deficiency could be the most damaging consequence of a spring freeze. Blevins’ paper also mentioned that rapidly growing, lush tall fescue in early spring is often higher in nitrogen and lower in sodium than during the rest of the growing season and that these factors may have a strong influence on plant magnesium uptake and animal absorption. “The reason sodium level goes so low is that nitrate level rises dramatically, along with the potassium,” Swerczek says. “So Blevins confirmed what I had been trying to tell people for the past dozen years or so. Blevins stated that sodium is very important and cattlemen should consider using salt to help prevent grass tetany.” Then in 2016, livestock nutritionist and forage specialist Woody Lane, Ph.D., Lane Livestock Services, referenced Swerczek’s earlier findings regarding the prevention of grass tetany with adequate sodium and not high levels of magnesium. Lane, Roseburg, Ore., stated that high potassium levels in the soil can reduce magnesium uptake by plants and can also reduce magnesium absorption by the animal — fewer magnesium atoms cross into the blood from the digestive tract. When he first heard about Swerczek’s intriguing theory that the syndrome of magnesium tetany was somehow related to the amount of salt in the diet, it sounded strange to him and to other nutritionists because there is a lot of skepticism. Lane says he remained skeptical until he Hereford.org

Lane’s conclusion is that salt is cheap, and he recommended that during the tetany season, producers should check the trace mineral mixture they are using, making sure it contains enough salt and that the cattle are actually consuming the salt-mineral mix.

carefully reviewed the scientific literature and found that scientists in Europe have conducted laboratory experiments on the effects of salt and developed sound physiological models to support this theory. Lane’s conclusion is that salt is cheap, and he recommended during the tetany season, producers should check the trace mineral mixture they are using, making sure it contains enough salt and that the cattle are actually consuming the salt-mineral mix.

Dangers in limiting salt Swerczek points out that for the past few decades, the livestock industry has limited the amount of

salt in mineral mixes to encourage animals to consume more minerals — which they do in an attempt to get the salt they need. This lack of salt has led to overconsumption of minerals, which can be toxic if fed in excessive amounts. Not only has this restriction of sodium led to an increase in incidence of grass tetany, milk fever, downer cow syndrome, acute bloat, and vaginal and rectal prolapses, but it has also created problems caused by the animals’ overconsumption of minerals in their attempt to obtain salt. Overfeeding of magnesium, for instance, may result in decreased milk production in dairy cows, severe reduction in weight gains for beef calves and other signs of mineral imbalance and toxicity. “Even though grass tetany syndrome is causing multi-millions of dollars of losses worldwide, these losses pale in comparison to the number of losses that are occurring in attempts to prevent the syndrome,” Swerczek says. “The overfeeding of magnesium and other minerals, and the lack of salt, is causing massive losses due to a multitude of other opportunistic diseases of all classes of herbivores.”

Symptoms of grass tetany Early signs of grass tetany in affected cattle include muscle spasms and convulsions, but the first thing noticed may be restlessness. The cow may leave the herd or stop eating. She may become more excitable or more aggressive than normal. Alert ears, face and ears twitching, muscle twitches in the flanks, and wide-eyed staring are early signs, along with head and neck tremors, frequent urination, getting up and down repeatedly, and high stepping with the front legs. Rapid eye movements, rapid and snapping retraction of the third eyelid membrane, drooling and excessive chewing are also common signs. The cow is alert, easily excited and may charge at anyone or anything that approaches her. This belligerent change in attitude is sometimes mistaken for rabies. The animal may be uncoordinated and staggering and collapse when she gets excited. Stress may bring on more symptoms. Soon she will go down and can’t get up. At this stage she may lie flat on her side with front legs paddling. She may thrash or throw her head back, drooling and breathing hard, and then lapse into a coma. Death is usually the result of respiratory failure during a seizure after she is on the ground. Often the symptoms appear so suddenly there is no chance to see the animal acting strangely. It is critical to keep a close eye on livestock/on cattle during seasons when grass tetany is common.

of employment. The beef industry will need to be proactive in preparing for this large paradigm shift including developing training and mentoring programs. “Moreover, the beef industry will face increased competition to hire and retain human capital from business sectors that may not be considered competition currently,” he notes. “The mantra of ‘this is how we’ve always done it’ will likely lead to the inability to recruit the best talent. The fact that 60-70% of the undergraduate population across land grant university animal science programs is female also poses an interesting shift in the diversity of beef personnel employees.” Current beef industry leadership is largely homogenous in race, gender and age.

diversity are any reflection of what the future workforce will look like in agriculture, the beef industry will undergo a massive change in the not so distant future. “This shift, coupled with changes in generational views of technology and personal interaction, will challenge the old guard during the transition phase,” he concludes. “A smooth, productive transition will require effort on both sides.” For Scott Hein, Hein Cattle Co., market volatility is the greatest issue ahead. “It is becoming increasingly difficult for the commercial producer to create a marketing plan because of the volatility,” he says. “The low volume and the wild swings in the futures market are a concern to the cow-calf producer on the ground. There is no pit trading, and with the electronic trading we are seeing wild swings.” Hein says this problem impacts all areas of the business including

budgeting, herd management and capital purchases. Cattle are still considered a commodity, but Hein recognizes it is oftentimes hard to distinguish trading on the board to real world markets. “Increased domestic and export demand would help to buffer this problem,” he says. “We would support any efforts to increase the volume on the CME [Chicago Mercantile Exchange] in an effort to stabilize the exchange.” In addition to market volatility and personnel, R.L. Sibbel, DVM, executive director of technical services at U.S. Food Animal Business Merck Animal Health, would argue Hereford.org

utilizing the optimum technology to spur efficiency remains as the largest challenge. “In my opinion, how we raise beef using the best technologies that can be effective at optimizing productivity and earning consumer confidence at the same time is an ongoing opportunity,” Sibbel notes. “Because the life cycle of beef is longer than other proteins, our cost of production is highest amongst the competing animal proteins. We must be able to optimize productivity and simultaneously earn more satisfied consumers to continue to succeed in the beef business.”

Advocacy and education Wes Steimel, National Beef Packing business manager, says in order to identify the greatest challenge ahead and to quantify success, the scope must extend through all facets of the industry from the cowcalf operator to the consumer. “In my opinion, the greatest issue we face as an industry is the ability of industry outsiders, and

even enemies of the beef industry, to direct the public narrative about beef,” Steimel indicates. “I feel we, as an industry, have not been proactive enough in putting our story out in the public view. We tend to play defense, and focus our efforts responding to claims made by groups trying to demonize the beef industry.” He recognizes the positive change in recent years, but he still stresses the importance of getting out in front and really telling the beef story first. Consumers are hungry for information about where their food comes from and how it is produced. With that in mind, he has observed enemies of the beef Wes Steimel industry tell their story about beef first.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.

“Over time, I feel, this reactive approach has allowed the public perception of the beef industry to erode, not to the point of distrust but at least to a point where they question whether beef is good for their health or the environment and whether the animals are treated humanely,” he notes. “And, this is exactly what those who oppose animal agriculture are trying to achieve. It’s a slow subtle subversion that will have a tremendous effect on the entire industry if we do not face it head on. We, as industry professionals, need to be leading the conversation about our business and to address the current concerns consumers have about health, sustainability and animal welfare.” He challenges producers to ask themselves: “What am I doing to drive the conversation about our industry?” and “What am I doing to help consumers truly understand what we do and why we do it?” Bailey McKay, National Junior Hereford Association board director, echoes Steimel, saying the majority of Americans have no personal connection to agriculture. For her, the greatest challenge the livestock

industry is facing, and will continue to face in the future, is educating the public about the industry. “Education is the key to good decision making,” Bailey McKay she says. “The livestock industry needs well-educated consumers so they understand livestock production practices that benefit animals, producers and, ultimately, themselves. This is a difficult process in a public climate that highlights perceived animal abuse and pushes for unsustainable farming practices.” McKay says a change requires effort from individuals all across the industry. She highlights that breed associations are currently working hard in this area by hosting forums, providing educational opportunities and promoting the industry through social media. “These areas must be the focus because the decisionmaking of urban politicians directly affects the fate of livestock producers,” she says.

Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extended-release anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age.

Faces of Leadership

Is Your Gateway to Opportunity Join the National Junior Hereford Association for the Faces of Leadership Conference in San Francisco, Calif., Aug. 1-4, 2018. by Brooke Hinojosa-Sidwell

A

s members of the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA), we are blessed with not one but two of the best weeks of summer — the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and the Faces of Leadership Conference. These two events are the highlights of most juniors’ summers. However, I always look forward to Faces of Leadership the most. Sometimes it is hard to juggle the cattle, contests and, of course, catching up with friends at JNHE. But the Faces of Leadership Conference is a way for juniors to gain exposure to leadership opportunities and to unique experiences and to wind down with friends without worrying about the cattle.

This conference offers different opportunities for juniors to promote their future success and leadership skills. Past participants have listened to nationally recognized speakers such as Heather Schultz, Amberely Snyder and Rhett Laubach. In addition to interacting with professional speakers, juniors will also participate in junior board workshops. The workshops enhance the individual’s leadership talents, communication skills and beefindustry knowledge. All of these activities are sure to culminate in an extremely rewarding experience for the junior membership. Referencing testimonials from several attendees, it is clear this is an excellent opportunity for juniors to get to know other juniors, to gain leadership skills and to see different parts of the country.

Faces of Leadership Conference will be held in the Golden State — San Francisco, Calif. This event is an extraordinary opportunity for juniors to experience a side of production agriculture that is not common anywhere else in the United States. Please join us Aug. 1-4 in San Francisco for your gateway to opportunity.

Faces of Leadership testimonials Jarrett Breber “Some things I acquired are better communication skills. For example, at the ropes course at Kansas State, we needed to communicate and strategize a way to beat the challenge we had to face. This helps in everyday life to help figure out challenges that we might face day to day and find ways to get around them.” Jacob Toombs “I gained a lot of leadership skills and learned about the Hereford industry from people that have spent their entire life with cattle. Faces of Leadership has helped me get out of my comfort zone, because there are people from all over the country, and we all have different backgrounds and styles of beef operations. This helps me learn how to talk to others and make friends with people you are not familiar with at all.” Sarah Lawrence “The best leadership skill I gained was to grab your worst fears by the horns. I am most excited for who will be there, who I will meet, what I get to learn and the skills I will develop.” Allie Schrammel “’Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.’ I have carried this quote with me, and remember it every time I have to get out of my comfort zone. I look forward to arriving at our destination and touring all the places we go.” Hereford.org


From the Field In the News NCBA Calling for Nominations for Beef Quality Assurance Awards Applications for the 12th annual National Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Awards are being accepted. The 2019 National BQA Awards recognize five winners in the areas of beef, dairy, marketing and education: • The BQA Cow Calf and BQA Feedyard Awards recognize producers who best demonstrate the implementation of BQA principles as part of the day-to-day activities on their respective operations. • The BQA / FARM (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management) Award honors those dairy operations that demonstrate the best in animal care and handling while implementing the BQA and FARM programs at the highest levels. • The BQA Marketer Award acknowledges livestock markets, cattle buyers and supply-chain programs that promote BQA to their customers and offer them opportunities to get certified. • The BQA Educator Award celebrates individuals or companies that provide high quality and innovative training to individuals that care for and handle cattle throughout the industry chain. The National BQA Awards are selected by a committee of BQA certified representatives from universities, state beef councils, sponsors and affiliated groups. Nominations are submitted by organizations, groups or individuals on behalf of a U.S. beef producer, dairy beef producer, marketer or educator. Individuals and families may not nominate themselves, though the nominees are expected to be involved in the preparation of the application. Past nominees are encouraged to submit their application under the new nomination structure. Previous winners may not reapply. Applications can be found at BQA.org, and applications are due by June 1, 2018. Hereford.org

In Passing Carol Botkin, 71, of Lexington, Ky., passed away March 15. Carol and her husband, Robert, were active Hereford breeders throughout the state of Kentucky for a number of years. She earned her master’s degree in education from Eastern Kentucky University before becoming employed by the Fayette County Public School System for more than 30 years. Carol also worked many years at Rupp Arena and was a member of East Hickman Baptist Church. Carol is survived by her husband Robert; her brother, Morris and spouse Melody Featherston; sisterin-laws Susan Botkin and Suzette Featherston; and several nieces and nephews and their children. George Knox, 89, of Tarzan, Texas, passed away March 15. “Tee,” as his friends and family knew him, was a dedicated rancher and George Knox cattleman all of his life. He graduated from high school in Midland, Texas, before attending New Mexico State University to earn a degree in animal husbandry. Tee is a past president of the Texas Hereford Association. His life’s work centered on ranching, ranch conservation, Hereford cattle and steer shows. He and his family were awarded champion honors at several Texas major shows over the years. Tee is survived by his daughter, Kathy Knox Buchholz and her spouse Gary, and several cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Jane Harriet Stovall Durham, 87, of Stillwater, Okla., passed away March 18. Jane graduated from Frederick High School in Fredrick, Okla., before attending the University of Texas for

Jane Durham

her bachelor’s degree is bacteriology in 1952. She married Norman Nevill Durham in 1952. They soon moved to Stillwater, Okla., when Norman accepted a position with Oklahoma State University. In 1980, Jane earned her second bachelor’s degree in animal science from Oklahoma State University. She applied this knowledge toward their Hereford cattle ranch — implementing the use of performance data to drive continuous improvement for their herd. Jane was active in many organizations including the Payne County Cattle Producers Association, the Oklahoma Hereford Association, the Oklahoma and National Poll-ettes Associations, the Hereford Women of Oklahoma and the National Hereford Women. Jane’s efforts in the cattle industry earned her the Master Breeder award from the Oklahoma State University Department of Animal Science, the Breeder of the Year award from the Oklahoma Hereford Association and recognition as the National Hereford Woman of the Year from the National Hereford Women. Jane was an active member of P.E.O. Chapter BU, an organization that works to provide educational opportunities for women — serving as president several times. She was a special initiate of the Alpha Upsilon chapter of the Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity in 1968, serving as an advisor for several years. The First Presbyterian Church was the recipient of her dedication and devotion to the Second Mile Sewing Group for more than 40 years, where she provided guidance and leadership to provide handmade prayer shawls for those in need of spiritual support. Jane is survived by her husband, Norman; daughters, Susan Durham and Richard Mueller, Janet and Bradley Gaskins, Diane Durham, and Linda and David Bender; five grandchildren; one great-grandson; and several other family members and friends.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

To the First-Time Show Parents 6) Speaking of dirty clothes, pack a roll of quarters and some laundry detergent. When you can snag a couple of hours near the end of the week, a laundromat run to catch up on the bulk of the week’s laundry is helpful. It makes unpacking after the show so much less hectic, too.

It’s hard to believe our family is entering our sixth year as a Hereford show family. It seems like just yesterday we purchased the first two Hereford heifers, Charlie and Bella, for our then six-year-old Waylon. My husband, Craig, and I both showed cattle as kids. But when it was time for us to be the show parents, it seemed like an entirely different world. As we’ve gotten into the routine through the years, Craig is typically the one who is in charge of all things cattle-related — the registration papers, the health papers, feeding, clipping and packing the trailer. My job is overseeing the washing at home and then ensuring everyone has what he or she needs for each show. Inevitably this leads to asking “Where did you put your show belt? Are you sure you packed enough underwear?” 22 times before each show. Even though Craig and I had shown many times, at many levels — and I had even worked for the Hereford World at Junior National Hereford Expos (JNHE) for several years — we had many questions that first year and beyond. For me it was often about schedules for each of the shows. When do the kids wear their state shirts? When do they wear traditional show shirts? What happens during the opening ceremonies? How do they register for the speech contest? How does the meal plan work?

90

| May/June 2018

One thing we quickly learned is the Hereford show family truly is there to help. Every single time we had questions, our friends — new and old — were more than willing to answer those questions and to help us find our way. Most definitely, if this is your first year, don’t be afraid to ask those questions. If you’re embarking on the new adventure of being a show parent, here are a few of the many tips and tricks I’ve picked up from friends through the years. 1) No matter how old your kids become, you will always have a use for wet wipes in the show box. 2) A Sharpie and a dry-erase marker will always come in handy, too. 3) It’s best to store food in an airtight container. Take a lesson from me on this one — I used a tote bag for our first junior nationals, and let’s just say the bag and its contents were not so desirable by the week’s end. 4) You will always need a rain jacket for every member of the family for every show, no matter the forecast — another tough lesson learned by the Lees. 5) Pack a duffel bag to carry clean clothes to the barn for events and contests. You can use that bag to carry the dirty clothes back to the hotel, too.

7) Some families find it easiest to pack in Rubbermaid containers, rather than suitcases, as they stack in the nose of the trailer more easily. Thanks to Becky Benedict, Mahomet, Ill., for the idea! 8) A photocopy of the show schedule attached to the show box can be useful throughout the week. Highlight your kids’ activities, and you won’t be quite so caught off guard by the next activity on the list. 9) If you’re bringing young children, no one will judge you for taking those little ones to the hotel pool in the middle of the day or getting them to bed before tieouts. I was raised in a family who went to the barns together and headed back to the hotel after tie-outs together. But, sometimes, it’s about survival during a long week. I promise, every mom in the barn has been in your shoes, and she understands. 10) Yes, you will feel every emotion as you watch your child enter that big showring for the first time. Yes, you may even feel nauseous. But savor that moment because, truly, there’s nothing like it. Before you know it, you’ll have your own collection of ideas to share and many, many wonderful memories and stories of each year together as a show family, too.

WhiteHawk 854C

White Hawk Natural 290E has surpassed all of the performance testing from weaning wt, yearling wt, and scan data, to producing high quality semen. Natural is a true outlier. Born unassisted to his 2-year-old dam 854C, who is a flush mate and full sister to White Hawk Warrior 845C, the pair ran with contemporaries until weaning on 9/6/17. Natural was grouped with 54 other spring 2017 bulls from weaning until 2/22/18 when yearling wts were taken. They ran on legume, ryegrass pasture, haylage and selffeed a mixture of 75% soy hulls and 25% corn gluten. Natural is an exceptionally unique Hereford bull combining great individual performance, scan data, enhanced EPD profile and superior maternal pedigree into a great phenotype. He has big sound feet, great legs which are squarely set providing a long fluid stride. He shows structurally sound angles from the side view, well-shaped scrotum, full of red meat that shows in a strong top line, with tremendous depth and spring of rib. Naturalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulder structure smoothly transitions into a long neck and a wellshaped head which he holds high walking in his normal gait. His eyes are fully pigmented and deeply set in his skull to protect them from the elements of nature.
