Craig Huffhines

A New ‘Space Race’ in Cattle Genomics — or Is It? Today the beef industry is entering uncharted territory as it relates to genomic technology. In this month’s column, I am going to attempt to discuss where the Hereford breed is positioned relative to what products are available, what products are not, what the American Hereford Association (AHA) is doing to remain relevant and attached to what is going on with new corporatelevel genetic test product launches, and why the risk of sitting idle is extremely great. The life cycle for the development and implementation of new technology can sometimes seem like a lifetime. The truth is not all new technology is warranted nor does it have the proper real or perceived return on investment for the targeted customer and sometimes it never reaches a maturity of understanding to allow for a business to ride out the start-up cost before the designed product makes it’s mark in the marketplace. However, in the case of animal genomics, I believe we will see the integration of this new technology in the years to come. Since the completion of the human genome map in 2003, the technological advancements and knowledge base in the bovine genome has begun to take off as scientists identify the genes or mutations that are causative for those things we perceive to be good such as growth, carcass quality or

4 Hereford World / November 2009

health and those things that we perceive to be bad such as genetic abnormalities, which include dwarfism, epilepsy and a host of other defects across the bovine population. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been directed toward better sequencing technology and computing power to attack human disease and, in turn, the beef industry, and for that matter all of agriculture benefits in the global investment and advancements in biotechnology. Two giant health companies, Pfizer and Merial, have invested heavily into the purchase of discovered tests, research and development, and commercialization of products that, to a degree, currently have a benefit to the industry. These companies have had some success in purchasing discoveries of genetic abnormalities from academia and then commercializing DNA tests for these genetic abnormalities. But up to this point, limited results have come from tests that are used to predict those things that drive cow-calf profitability such as health, feed efficiency, fertility and, to a lesser degree, beef quality. Recently, Merial announced the beginning of a relationship with the American Angus Association (AAA) in offering tests that could augment the AAA’s current genetic evaluation whereby the

Association could generate what geneticists call markerassisted expected progeny differences (EPDs). Last May, some of the original data from a joint project between AAA and Merial was released at the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) meetings. Preliminary results suggested that the current gene markers discovered in the Angus population could increase the accuracy of a bull calf’s marbling EPD by three-hundredths (.03) compared to the same bull calf with pedigree information and a marbling ultrasound scan. Today, it could be argued by most that such a slight enhancement in the information of an animal is not worthy of the cost of a $50 to $100 test. However, what can be said of this technology is that so long as researchers and large companies are willing to invest heavily in the discovery of genes that affect traits of interest in the industry, then at some point there will be a value proposition for the average Hereford breeder. The disadvantage that most breeds have today is that up to this point the majority of genomics research conducted in the beef sector in North America is being done on the largest population — Angus. Furthermore, scientists have determined that the gene markers that continued on page 38... www.hereford.org

NRSP Helps Prove Young Bulls The American Hereford Association (AHA) National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) continues to be a vital ingredient to find young bulls that will be the movers and shakers in the breed. It also continues to prove how breeders have really emphasized genetic improvement, and finally, it proves that even using expected progeny differences (EPDs) on young sires can provide some stability in selection. Since I joined the AHA staff, I have been enamored with the NRSP that the AHA developed. I have been impressed with the breeders’ passion to get bulls enrolled, and I have been equally impressed with the dedication of the test herds that continue to use Hereford genetics to make their programs profitable. The two herds that have been a part of the program the longest are Stahly Ranch, Cavour, S.D., and Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb. In Table 1 you will find the final test results on the three bulls used at Stahly Ranch for calves born in 2008. This set of calves, in general, really impressed Mike Stahly with its performance, and the entire group of steers harvested at more than 72% Choice with no outs.

In addition, the last set of steers at Olsen’s also graded nearly 70% Choice with no outs. This is even more impressive when you think of how we handle these contemporary groups of test cattle. In order to be able to keep good and accurate records, the cattle are fed together and harvested on the same day. This program does not allow for any biased information and does differ a little from normal feeding situations when feedlot managers and owners can sell cattle at different times according to when they believe they are ready. We have witnessed a marked improvement, and these tests continue to prove that the genetic trend within the breed is true and if breeders use all the tools at their disposal, they can make genetic progress. These tools include data collection at all levels of production including ultrasound and harvest data. Many breeders are interested in participating in the NRSP, but they are concerned that they are not big enough to become involved. That could not be further from the truth. This program is open to all Hereford breeders who have a bull that they feel would be beneficial to the program and would like to get some early proof on him.

To enroll a bull, you can find the enrollment form at Hereford.org or in the January Hereford World, or you can contact me at (816) 842-3757 or jward@hereford.org. After the bulls are enrolled, all of the nominees are sent to the test herds and the individual ranchers make the final decision on which bulls they would like to use. If your bull is selected, you will have to furnish at least 60 straws of semen, and you will be charged a fee that will be given to the test herd to cover costs (that fee varies among herds). This test has allowed breeders of all sizes to get bulls tested against some of the best and has also provided marketing opportunities. We have seen bulls that have performed well in these tests get leased or purchased by other breeders and artificial insemination (AI) studs. Some of these bulls would include Ribeye, Harland, Progress, Bellisarus and 3027. On behalf of everyone at the AHA, the Board of Directors and the AHA members, we extend our appreciation to the test herds and those who have supported the NRSP with young sires. Thanks and please keep up the great work! HW

Uruguayan Hereford breeders host national show Uruguayan Hereford breeders hosted the national Hereford show in Montevideo, Uruguay, Sept. 15-16. The Hereford Breeders’ Society of Uruguay organized the two-day show during the Prado Expo, a 10-day livestock and trade show. Montana Hereford breeder Jack Holden judged the show. Holden says the Prado Expo is comparable to the National Western Stock Show in Denver. Holden developed a relationship with breeders in Uruguay during his tenure on the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors and says the cattle shown had a heavy influence of U.S. genetics. The 130 entries were evaluated not only on phenotype but also on their expected progeny differences (EPDs), which were released in the first-ever Pan-American Cattle Evaluation (PACE). PACE was released in July and includes Hereford cattle from the U.S., Canada, Argentina and Uruguay. The quality of the cattle at the show was impressive, Holden says. “They showed very consistent, good cattle. I chose cattle that blended good balance, volume, capacity and

muscle shape. And they had to have good EPDs to go with it.” Holden traveled to Uruguay with Jack Ward, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. Ward and Holden also visited the organization’s bull test facility near Kiyu, where about 80 bulls are tested annually and sold. Throughout the remainder of the year, approximately 400 steers are grass-finished at the facility. “They fatten them on grass with very little supplement,” Holden explains. “That’s why they push so much for feed efficiency. They need cattle that can grow efficiently, and they are very conscious of that. The Uruguay breeders are very performance-oriented, and they are definitely excited about the PACE EPDs. They’ve been pushing for it and wanting it all along.”

Supporting Youth The American Hereford Women (AHW) sponsors or co-sponsors many contests in support of Hereford youth. All contests are held and most of the scholarships are awarded annually as part of the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). Following is a quick recap of the programs that are currently being supported by the AHW. Contest and scholarship winners were reported in the September Hereford World.

Grill-off Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) LLC joined forces with AHW in Tulsa this past July as co-sponsors of the biggest Great American Hereford Grill-off to date. The grill-off, which originated in 2006, has enjoyed steady and enthusiastic growth. This most recent grill-off boasted 10 participating teams. CHB LLC provided all of the beef for the contest including peeled

tri tip, clod tenders and 85% lean ground beef. Watch for the winning recipes to be posted on the CHB Web site. A panel of three judges — including Mary Ann Berg, CHB Ambassador; NCBA Chef Michaele Musel; and Heather Buckmaster, Oklahoma Beef Council — judged the teams on their recipe and showmanship/presentation. The Washington team claimed first place in the youth division while Texas took top honors in the adult segment of the contest. Cash prizes were paid to the top three teams. Winning teams also received a CHB grilling set, and all participants received CHB aprons.

Golden Bull Achievement This recognition can include up to five awards, which consist of a bronze Hereford bull, donated by the American Hereford Association and the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA), and a $750

Experiences as a CHB Ambassador As a Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) Ambassador, I have the opportunity to travel and represent our brand at events across the country. These trips have presented me with the opportunity to mingle with consumers who are very excited about the product we as Hereford breeders provide. The consistency of CHB is one of our strong selling points. The Hereford genetics

promise this consistency in flavor and tenderness. Consumers want to buy flavor, not fat. Here are some highlights of my recent trips: The Fresh Market (TFM) openings in two Philadelphia-area suburbs kicked off the new TFM opening season. Brad Ellefson, CHB LLC account manager, works with TFM meat departments to plan the

The consumers in this retirement community were impressed with the tenderness and flavor of the grilled ribeye we served as samples. Our fall has been busy for family activities and my work with CHB. I transitioned from a TFM opening at Normal, Ill., to the Wayne County Fair before traveling to TFM Manager’s Preview in Greensboro, N.C.

The front cover of the holiday TFM flyer will be featuring Hereford standing rib roast. What a testimony to this company’s confidence in the Hereford product. Have you tried a tri-tip? This is a cut very familiar on the west coast. Next time you order your freezer meat add a tri-tip to your order. It can be used in a variety of ways: oven roasted, grilled or sliced thin across the grain and seared for use in sandwiches, fajitas or stir fry. Here is a recipe featuring the tri-tip for you to enjoy. HW

Filet of Tri-tip 1 whole tri-tip, approx. wt. 1½ to 2 lbs. Rub entire tri-tip with olive oil. Season generously all sides of the tri-tip with sea salt/ peppercorn mix. Place on the grill on high heat to braise approximately 4 minutes per side. Move to 300 degrees indirect heat. Cook till your desired doneness (125 degrees medium rare, 135 degrees medium) approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Allow to rest 10 minutes. Slice thin starting from narrow end of tip and carving width-wise or against the grain so you have small pieces of meat. Yield: 3 to 4 servings

Perceptions 2009 AHA Annual Report


Hereford Perception Evolving as Demand Increases Perception is about changing the way people see things, shifting attitudes and creating recognition. During fiscal year (FY) 2009 American Hereford Association (AHA) members witnessed Hereford perception continue to evolve in a positive direction. FY 2009 was a year of growth for the breed. Hereford breeders continued to experience an increased demand for Hereford genetics while the Association had an increase in registrations and membership. The year-end figures are exciting, especially considering the state of the economy and the decreasing national cow herd. As the second largest cattle breed in the U.S., AHA processed 64,293 registrations and 31,747 transfers during FY 2009 with 103,093 cows on inventory. The Association has 3,434 active adult members and 2,256 active junior members — both an increase compared to fiscal year 2008 (see Inside Back Cover [IBC]). These numbers validate the evolving perception of Hereford in today’s marketplace. AHA members are continuing to see a shift in demand as more and more commercial producers are realizing the benefits of heterosis and incorporating Hereford genetics into their breeding programs.

Changing Perceptions It can be hard to change people’s minds. First, you have to know what they’re thinking. Second, you have to reach out to them through the channels they trust most. And third, you have to make a compelling case that’s rooted in truth and offers value to them. As we review this fiscal year, there’s no doubt AHA members and staff devoted time and energy attempting to change the way people think about Herefords. Stimulating breed progress during the last decade has been AHA’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program. Now nine years old, the program has helped the AHA and Hereford breeders build a database that documents the breed’s strengths. More and more Hereford breeders continue to go above status quo and submit ultrasound data, body condition scores, udder scores and cow weights, which all add to the integrity and accuracy of the AHA database. Hereford breeders also continue to recognize the advantages of using artificial insemination (AI), thus, creating more predictability to Hereford genetics. Since 2003 the number of AI calves registered has increased by 33%. In 2005 AHA Board and staff realized cattlemen who have been using Angus-influenced genetics for the last two decades want proof of what Herefords can bring to their breeding programs. To prove Hereford bulls are the best option to use on the nation’s predominately black cow herd, AHA set out to document Hereford’s genetic advantage for reducing production costs and increasing efficiency by

participating in various real-world research projects. In April, results of the Circle A Ranch Heterosis Project were released documenting that Hereford-sired females have a 7% advantage in conception rate, resulting in a net income of $51 more per cow per year and have a significantly higher selling price for bred heifers when compared to straight Angus females. Those are real numbers that AHA staff and members can use to change perceptions. The third set of Lacey Livestock steers were harvested this summer as part of the Harris Ranch Heterosis Project. Results of the three-year project comparing Hereford and Angus bulls under commercial conditions is scheduled to be released in early 2010. The Harris project measured differences at the ranch, feedlot and packing plant. Data from

“I think people’s eyes are opening up because of the heterosis research project and we’re going to see an increased demand for Hereford bulls during the next 10 years. Through the project, Hereford genetics added pounds to our calves, efficiency in the feedlot and our black-baldie females are more fertile than our straight Angus females.” — John Lacey the first two years show a $45 advantage for the Hereford-sired steers compared to the Angussired steers. Consistent with the Circle A data, the Herefordsired heifers from the first calf crop showed a 7% advantage in conception rate compared to the Angus-sired females.

CHB LLC Transitions, Reorganized For Growth Despite a U.S. economic downturn and resulting depressed beef demand, Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) LLC experienced growth in the marketplace and added new team members to increase opportunities during fiscal year (FY) 2009. CHB LLC packing partners National Beef Packing Co. LLC and Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc. harvested 379,282 CHB-eligible cattle and certified 250,266 total carcasses during FY 2009. A total of 36,810,360 lb. was marketed as Certified Hereford Beef®, which is up 900,000 lb., or about 2.5% compared to last year. AHA Executive Vice President Craig Huffhines says, “CHB LLC found ample opportunities for new business relationships and new growth in the program this year. A new management team led by beef marketing veteran Tom LeBeau has positioned CHB LLC for unique possibilities.” In FY 2009, CHB LLC staff launched two large foodservice distributor companies in the eastern U.S. Sysco Food Service distributors and Merchants Foodservice began distributing CHB products in nine states, adding approximately 900 new sales people to the program. These new distributors aided the program in establishing 29% more restaurant business, bringing total restaurant sales to more than 5.5 million lb. In addition to growth in distribution channels, CHB LLC has been working on value-added concepts. A case-ready beef program was developed with Superior Farms, Boston, Mass. Also developed by CHB LLC staff along with Klement’s Co., Milwaukee, Wis., is an all-beef Chicago-style hot dog. “The goal of this high-quality beef frank program is to utilize a higher percentage of carcass trimmings, gaining a better carcass utilization, with the added bonus of a new profit center for CHB LLC,” Huffhines says. Also during FY 2009, Hereford Verified (HV) saw an increase in marketings. HV is the AHA’s traceable program for Hereford-influenced calves that provides producer bonuses and data on cattle that meet CHB requirements. During the year, 15,940 head were certified and marketed through the program, up 30% from last year.

A total of 164 Hereford production sales were reported by AHA fieldmen this fiscal year. Bull sales averaged $3,194 and females $2,811, which is consistent with fiscal year 2008 numbers. Hereford breeders and fieldmen reported the biggest increase in the country was with private-treaty bull sales.

A total of 15,940 Hereford-influenced calves were marketed through Hereford Verified, AHA’s traceable program for Hereford-influenced calves that provides producer bonuses and data on cattle that meet CHB requirements, a 30% increase compared to the previous year.


Shifting Attitudes

AHA Board and staff hosted livestock editors and radio broadcasters for an event dedicated to sharing the Hereford message. Attending the Herefords, Heterosis and Headlines media event were 11 media professionals representing nearly 2 million subscribers plus radio affiliates in 12 states.

Using the data collected from the various research projects, AHA is setting out to shift attitudes. In April, Board members hosted 11 media professionals representing nearly 2 million subscribers plus radio affiliates in 12 states during the Herefords, Heterosis and Headlines Media Event. During the event, media professionals had a chance to hear about AHA’s research projects as well as other Hereford-related story ideas. The AHA communication team continues to foster the relationships developed during the media event. To continue to share the positive Hereford message and complement the national ad campaign, press releases and feature stories with testimonials and research data have been distributed and printed in various state, regional and national beef and agricultural publications. A large shift in industry attitude has been witnessed through increased Hereford semen demand. According to the National Association of Animal

Breeders (NAAB), Hereford semen sales increased 8.4% in 2008, despite an overall decrease in domestic beef semen sales. “Hereford semen sales have been extremely good,” says ABS Global Beef Sire Acquisition Manager Lorna Marshall. “Our Hereford sales are up about 20% this year, and Hereford has been our fastestgrowing breed the last three years.”

Marshall attributes much of this growing demand for Hereford semen to the cattleman’s need for heterosis. “As we’ve seen the nation’s cow herd become more straightbred, we’ve certainly heard from some of our commercial customers that they’ve experienced reduced fertility, as we’ve moved away from a cow herd that has some heterosis in it to more of a straightbred cow.”

Hereford semen demand in the commercial industry is increasing according to NAAB reports. U.S. Hereford semen sales increased 8.4% in 2008, despite an overall drop in domestic semen sales for beef cattle. Sales of Hereford semen rose 39.3% in foreign countries, well above the overall increase of all breeds at 21.67%, according to the 2008 data from NAAB.

Relationships Evolve Building and strengthening relationships with related industries allows the American Hereford Association (AHA) to maintain and enhance the programs it offers members. To increase efficiency and enhance the Association’s revenue, American Beef Records Association (ABRA), AHA’s wholly owned subsidiary, offers registry and performance recording services to other breed associations. This fiscal year ABRA processed 38,288 registrations for six other breeds, generating an additional $218,638 income for the Association.

More than 640 Hereford youth from 38 states and Canada participated in this year’s VitaFerm Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). A total of 1,132 entries including 90 steers, 57 bredand-owned bulls, 32 cow-calf pairs, three junior AI heifers, 219 bred-andowned heifers, 207 horned heifers and 524 polled heifers competed throughout the week. The event also included 22 skill-based contests, and youth were awarded more than $15,000 in scholarship money.

For more JNHE highlights: September Hereford World The 2009 Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) Foundation Female that sold during the Mile High Night Sale in Denver, Jan. 16, generated $50,000 to benefit Hereford youth.

Purchasing the heifer were Red Hills Herefords, Clinton, Okla.; Sparks/Kimbrough, Connerville, Okla.; Little Creek Ranch, Parma, Idaho; Split Butte Livestock, Minidoka, Idaho; Frank & Margaret Rodgers, Buhl, Idaho; Starr Polled Herefords, Manawa, Wis.; Eva Hamman, Jacksboro, Texas; Pollard Farms, Waukomis, Okla.; MCS Cattle Co., Elgin, Okla.; and Wooden Shoe Farms, Blackfoot, Idaho. During FY 2009 HYFA awarded more than $45,750 in scholarships to Hereford youth. 4 2009 AHA Annual Report


Creating Recognition

Herefords — The Efficiency Experts Creating awareness about Hereford genetics and the Hereford brand is the goal of the AHA communication team in cooperation with Hereford Publications Inc. The Hereford message is distributed through media outlets such as the Hereford World, Hereford eNews, The Whiteface and Hereford.org. The Hereford World tabloid, which is produced four times a year, won first-place newspaper honors in the Livestock Publications

Council Critique Contest. The tabloid is targeted toward the commercial producer and is distributed to the Hereford World subscription list and to an additional 20,000 commercial producers. Other honors won by HPI staff in the LPC Critique Contest included second-place color catalog, second-place blackand-white catalog and honorable mention instructional story. Continuing to improve the perception of Hereford genetics

in the commercial industry is what the communication team strives to do each day. But shifting attitudes and creating recognition for the breed is a team effort that takes all Hereford breeders, the AHA Board and AHA staff. With this focused effort and commitment, the result will be when people think Hereford; they think “The Efficiency Experts” — the right choice for today’s commercial cattle producer.

PACE Strengthens Foreign Perception The first Hereford genetic evaluation that includes cattle from more than one continent was released in July. To increase overseas marketing opportunities for Hereford breeders and strengthen the genetic evaluation, the American Hereford Association (AHA) worked closely with Hereford organizations in Uruguay, Canada and Argentina and created the Pan-American Cattle Evaluation (PACE). “The intent of this evaluation is to broaden the horizons for Hereford breeders between continents,” says Jack Ward, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed

improvement. “This will link the countries and expand marketing opportunities and, thus, allow for more linkage as common genetics will be used throughout North and South America. U.S. breeders could market semen to large South American herds and get bulls proven in large contemporary groups.” PACE is also one step closer to a global Hereford genetic evaluation, which is something that has been discussed at length at World Hereford Council meetings, and feasibility studies have been commissioned. 2009 AHA Annual Report 5

Nature of Operations The American Hereford Association (AHA) conducts research and experiments in the breeding of Hereford cattle, compiles and preserves pedigree records for owners and breeders, participates in and promotes the arrangement of fairs, exhibitions and cattle shows to encourage the breeding of Hereford cattle, and assists with the promotion of the end product produced from Hereford cattle. Members and subscribers of the Association are primarily owners and breeders of Hereford cattle. The members and subscribers are located worldwide; however, the largest concentration is within the United States. Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) provides publication services to Hereford cattle ranches and publishes a monthly magazine. The Association is the sole member of Certified Hereford Beef ® LLC (CHB). CHB strives to increase demand for Hereford cattle by promoting Hereford beef as a premium beef product under the Certified Hereford Beef ® trademark. CHB was formed as a limited liability company on September 1, 2001. Prior to that date, CHB’s activities were performed and accounted for within the Association. American Beef Records Association (ABRA) provides computer consultation in herd planning and management, breeding services and marketing for commercial livestock. Basis of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements include the Association and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI), Certified Hereford Beef ® LLC (CHB) and American Beef Records Association (ABRA). All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Management Estimates Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and reported revenues and expenses. Actual results could vary from the estimates that were used. Basis of Financial Statement Presentation The Association reports information regarding its financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets. • Unrestricted net assets are funds available for any purpose. • Temporarily restricted net assets represent contributions whose use by the Association is limited by donor-imposed stipulations that either expire by passage of time or can be fulfilled and removed by actions of the Association pursuant to those stipulations. When a stipulated restriction ends or purpose of restriction is accomplished, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets and reported in the Statement of Activities as net assets released from restrictions. • Permanently restricted net assets — At August 31, 2009 and 2008, the Association had no permanently restricted net assets. Cash and Cash Equivalents The Association considers all money market investments and highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Investments amounting to $564,429 and $106,516 were considered to be cash equivalents as of August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Accounts Receivable Accounts receivable consist of amounts billed for magazine advertising, subscriptions and member services, but not received by year-end. Bad debts are provided on the allowance method based on management’s evaluation of outstanding accounts receivable at the end of each year. HPI’s policy states that accounts with outstanding balances beyond 60 days will accrue interest at 1.5% per month, balances beyond 90 days will no longer be provided with services and balances beyond 120 days will be turned over to a collection agency. The allowance for doubtful accounts was $31,364 and $24,891 as of August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or market. Investments Investments are comprised of debt securities and are carried at fair value. The fair value of investments is based on quoted fair prices for those investments or similar investments as of August 31, 2009 and 2008. Gains or losses on sales of investments are determined on a specific cost identification method. Unrealized gains and losses are determined based on year-end market values. Property and Equipment Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The assets are depreciated and amortized over periods ranging from 5 to 30 years. Additions and improvements of $1,000 or more are capitalized, while maintenance and repairs which do not improve or extend the life of the asset are expensed in the year incurred. Depreciation charged against income amounted to $137,699 and $150,688 in 2009 and 2008, respectively. Revenue Recognition The Association recognizes service fee revenue over the applicable accounting period to which the services relate. Unearned revenues related to Association services and publication subscriptions and advertising of HPI are reflected as deferred revenue on the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. Functional Allocation of Expenses The costs of providing the various programs and activities have been summarized on a functional basis in the Consolidated Statement of Activities. Accordingly, certain costs have been allocated among the program services and supporting activities benefited. Income Taxes The Association, ABRA and CHB are exempt from federal income taxes on their primary operations under paragraph 501(c)(5) of the Internal Revenue Code. They are, however, subject to income taxes on any net income from unrelated business activities. The Association, ABRA and CHB have been classified by the Internal Revenue Service as organizations that are not private foundations. The Association’s wholly owned subsidiary, HPI, Inc., is a taxable entity and is, therefore, subject to federal income taxes. The Association has elected to defer the provisions of FIN 48, Accounting for Income Taxes, under the provisions of FSP FIN 48-3. The Association uses a FAS 5, Loss Contingencies, approach for evaluating

See the accompanying independent auditor’s report and notes to consolidated financial statements. 2009 AHA Annual Report 7


uncertain tax positions and continually evaluates expiring statutes of limitations, audits, proposed settlements, changes in tax law and new authoritative rulings. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed annually for differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities that will result in taxable or deductible amounts in the future based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the difference are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. Income tax expense is the tax payable or refundable for the period plus or minus the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

2 — Concentration of Credit Risk The Association maintains cash accounts at a bank located in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The balances in the bank periodically exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) limits. The FDIC insured limits were $250,000 and $100,000 at August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The Association’s uninsured cash balances totaled $96,206 and $76,285 at August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

3 — Investments Investments at August 31, 2009 and 2008, are summarized as follows: August 31, 2009 Amortized Cost Fair Value Government bonds and notes $935, 272 $947,632 Corporate bonds $75,270 $77,216 August 31, 2008 Government bonds and notes $1,335,752 $1,350,316 Corporate bonds $ – $– Investments consist of government and corporate bonds and notes which are carried at fair value using quoted prices in active markets for identical assets (Level 1), in accordance with generally accepted accounting standards. Unrealized gains in the amount of $19,742 and $8,275 were recorded to adjust investments to fair value at August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. These investments are exposed to various risks such as interest rate, market and credit risks. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in the values of investment securities will occur in the near term.

4 — Retirement Plan The Association established a defined contribution employee retirement plan for all eligible employees of the Association, HPI, CHB, and ABRA. The plan provides for employer and employee contributions based on a percentage of annual compensation. Employer contributions for the years ended August 31, 2009 and 2008, were $81,289 and $85,167, respectively.

5 — Line of Credit In December 2007, the Association entered into a revolving line of credit agreement with UMB Bank. The line is unsecured with a maximum draw amount of $250,000 and is payable on demand. Interest is payable monthly at an interest rate of 5%. The outstanding balance was $0 and $27,449 as of August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

6 — Long-Term Debt Long-term debt consists of the following at August 31: 2009 Notes - vehicles, collateralized by related vehicles, interest fixed at 4.99%, maturing from July 2012 through April 2013 $100, 255 30,064 Current portion Long-Term Debt $70,191 Total Scheduled maturities of principal payments on the liabilities are as follows: Year Amount Year Amount 2010 $30,064 2013 $5,980 2011 31,599 2014 – 2012 32,611 Thereafter – $100,255

2008 $– $–

7 — Income Taxes

The provisions for income taxes consist of the following components for the years ended August 31: 2009 2008 Current $– $– Deferred Temporary differences 5,906 64,595 Change in valuation allowance (5,906) (64,595) $ – $–

The tax provision differs from the expense that would result from applying statutory rates to income before income taxes because of the valuation allowance applied against the deferred income tax assets. Deferred income taxes are provided for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of HPI’s assets and liabilities. Differences are primarily attributable to the net operating loss carryforwards, resulting in deferred tax assets. The components of the deferred tax assets at August 31 are as follows: Deferred Tax Assets 2009 2008 Net operating loss carryforwards $199,598 $205,504 199,598 205,504 Less: Valuation Allowance $ – $– HPI utilized net operating losses of approximately $17,371 and $198,160 for the years ended August 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively. HPI has net operating loss carryforwards of $587,053 available to offset future federal and state taxable income that expire through 2023 as follows: Year Amount Year Amount 2009 $– 2013 168,100 2010 – 2014 157,696 2011 – Thereafter 241,027 20,230 $587,053 2012

8 2009 AHA Annual Report

8 — Temporarily Restricted Net Assets Temporarily restricted net assets are funds donated for the purpose of awarding $2,500 annually to the Supreme Champion Hereford of the Denver show.

9 — Collections The Association has a collection of artwork, appraised at approximately $308,600, that is on public display at the Association’s headquarters. The Association has adopted a policy of not capitalizing the collection of artwork in its financial statement. Accordingly, no collection items are recognized as assets, whether they are purchased or received as a donation. Purchases of collection items reduce net assets in the period when purchased. No items were purchased for or removed from the collection during the years ended August 31, 2009 or 2008. The Association insures these collections with a policy that has a face value consistent with the appraised values.

10 — Fair Value Measurements In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157 “Fair Value Measurements” in order to establish a single definition of fair value and a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles that is intended to result in increased consistency and comparability in fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 also expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 applies whenever other authoritative literature requires (or permits) certain assets and liabilites to be measured at fair value, but does not expand the use of fair value. SFAS No. 157 was originally effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. In early 2008, the FASB issued Staff Position (FSP) FAS-157-2, “Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157”, which delayed by one year, the effective date of SFAS No. 157 for all non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). The delay pertained to items including, but not limited to, non-financial assets and non-finanical liabilities initially measured at fair value in a business combination, non-financiassets (such as real estate or donations in kind) recorded at fair value at the time of donation, and long-lived assets measured at fair value for impairment assessment under SFAS No. 144 “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”. The Association adopted the portion of SFAS No. 157 that has not been delayed by FSP FAS-157-2 as of September 1, 2008, and plans to adopt the balance of its provisions as of September 1, 2009. Items carried at fair value on a recurring basis (to which SFAS No. 157 applies in 2009) consist of investments decribed in Note 3, which are valued based on quoted prices inactive or brokered markets for identical assets. The Association is continuing to evaluate the impact the standard will have on the determination of fair value needed to non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities beginning September 1, 2009.

11 —Other Assets On October, 4, 2006, the Association entered into an agreement with Seabiscuit Park, LLC to purchase approximately 10 acres of land for a purchase price of $1,306,800. In 2007, the Association made a deposit of $250,000 of earnest money which is included in other assets on the consolidated financial statements. Closing on the contract is contingent on survey and review of the property, as well as the accomplishment of certain construction projects within a specific timeline and allows the Association the right to terminate the contract and be refunded the earnest money under these circumstances. As of August 31, 2009, the Association has not closed on the contract due to approval delays from the city planning commission and due to the developer missing key deadlines. Management is in the process of negotiating a fifth addendum to the agreement.

12 — Subsquent Events Management has evaluated subsequent events through October 6, 2009, the date which the financial statements were available for issue. There have been no events which require disclosure.

Independent Auditor’s Report

Board of Directors/American Hereford Association/Kansas City, Mo.: We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of financial position of American Hereford Association and its subsidiaries (collectively, the Association) as of August 31, 2009 and 2008, and the related consolidated statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Association’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with U.S. generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to in the first paragraph present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of American Hereford Association and subsidiaries as of August 31, 2009 and 2008, and the changes in their net assets and their cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. — Respectfully submitted, Kennedy and Coe, LLC, October 6, 2009 Pursuant to its bylaws, AHA submits the above financial information for its members as of the close of the fiscal years ended August 31, 2009 and 2008. — American Hereford Association, Craig Huffhines, executive vice president

Judge Bean’s Putting the “beef” back in barbecue with Certified Hereford Beef.

by Sara Gugelmeyer

T

he South is worldrenowned for its pork barbecue, but Aubrey “Judge” Bean feels that traditional Texas-style beef barbecue is better, and he’s trying to convince the Nashville, Tenn., population of his belief. And he’s doing it with Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®). Born in Texas, Bean and his family moved to the Nashville area while he was in high school. He returned to Texas after college. Although his degree is in petroleum engineering, he worked in the sports clothing and manufacturing business for years, based out of Austin, Texas. His job brought him to Tennessee many times to visit clients. He enjoyed Nashville but noticed the lack of good beef barbecue. Bean was already more than just a barbecue fan; his grandfather the original Judge Bean, owned a restaurant in Wichita Falls, Texas, where he taught Aubrey how to barbecue. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Aubrey Bean, too, decided to open a restaurant. He chose the Nashville

area because he wanted to provide a place there to eat beef barbecue. “My grandfather always had a big restaurant in Wichita Falls, Texas, and I wanted to do that as well,” Bean says. “I chose Nashville because they didn’t have Texas beef barbecue, and we just feel like beef is a better product than pork.” Like him, there are many ex-Texans who reside in the Nashville area. In fact, Bean is part of a “Texas Exes” organization, of which there are about 1,400 members in Nashville. In April 2009, CHB LLClicensed Nashville-based Robert Orr Sysco as a CHB distributor. Right away a meeting was set up with Aubrey Bean, who was looking for a way to set his barbecue apart. Bean met with CHB LLC

(l to r) Mick Welch, Aubrey Bean and one of Bean’s partners Bobby Burton. Other partners not pictured are Andy Johnson and Shannon Terry.

30 Hereford World / November 2009

foodservice director Mick Welch. The decision was easy, Bean says. “I’d had Angus before and wasn’t impressed. They contacted me about Hereford beef, and I tried some of it and thought ‘This is awesome.’ It was a lot better, and it’s grilling up a lot better too.” Bean, who is the cook as well as part owner, says he has also had great customer feedback. “Everyone talks about how great everything is, and it seems we are getting bigger and better compliments.” Since Judge Bean’s Bar-B-Que opened in May, the numbers have proven its popularity as well. Bean says the restaurant serves between 500 and 600 people a day and thousands of pounds of brisket a week. The restaurant features a wide array of barbecue options, sides and appetizers but also boasts an impressive CHB “Judge’s 16 oz. Steak.” The menu describes each item in a witty conversational style. For instance, the “Judge’s Smoked Sausage” is offered in beef or pork. “Texas beef for the real cowboy, pork sausage for the tenderfoot.” The whole menu is available for potential customers to view at www.judgebeans.com, and it also makes for some entertaining reading. Catering is also available. Bean has big plans for many more Judge Bean’s Bar-B-Que restaurants. He and his partners will open another location in Franklin, Tenn., soon; and they hope to have about 20 restaurants across the country in the next few years. That’s good news for beefbarbecue lovers and for CHB. HW www.hereford.org


People Person Paul Slayton shares about his time on the Board, careers, cattle. by Sara Gugelmeyer

T

here’s been one constant in Paul Slayton’s various positions in the last 30 years: people. In all the jobs he’s worked since college, he has, in essence, been a people manager. That’s something he’s enjoyed,

and it has also taught him valuable lessons he’s used when serving on the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors. Now that his four-year term has ended, he reflects on the years spent serving a breed and industry he loves. The son of sharecroppers, Paul Slayton was raised on his family’s livestock and cropping operation in west-central Illinois. He attended college at the University of Illinois and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in animal sciences. He searched for a job in livestock communications working for a publication or a company for which he could travel around the region. But, unable to find his “dream job,” he worked for Ankony Angus for a few years. Then opportunity came looking for him. “The polled Hereford association kept my application on file, and one day Johnny Winston called and said the fieldman job was open,” Paul explains. He interviewed and was hired in 1973 as an American Polled Hereford Association field representative. It was during this time that he met the daughter of Wisconsin Hereford breeder Warren and Isabel Brown. Paul and Bette married May 4, 1984. After seven years as a fieldman, he was hired to manage the

Polled Hereford World and moved to Kansas City. But he missed production agriculture and wanted to get out of the office. So he went to work for Falklands Farm near Schellsburg, Pa., in 1983. He managed the farm and Hereford cattle for Mr. and Mrs. Leon Falk for 10 years but says there, too, he was managing people more than cattle.

“There’s all this data and research that’s been compiled and now we can talk facts instead of perceptions on how efficient Herefords are.” — Paul Slayton Falk died in 1988 and the farm had a dispersal in December, but Falk’s widow wanted to keep a few replacements and try to rebuild the herd. “We kept a core group of 30-35 head in partnership with Mrs. Falk,” Paul says. It wasn’t long before she decided she no longer wanted to own the cattle, but she continued to lease the place to Paul. “We kept those replacements and started building our own herd of Herefords, Angus and Gelbvieh,” he says. The Slaytons moved to their current farm near Bedford, Pa., in 1995, and in 1999 Paul was hired as the executive director of the Pennsylvania Beef Council. Prior to his hiring, Paul had served on the board of directors for the Pennsylvania Cattlemen’s Association and the Pennsylvania Beef Council, so he thought it would be a good fit. It was, and he continues to work for the beef council in that capacity today. Paul’s wife, Bette, is the president and CEO of the Bedford County Development Association.

much time is left to spend with their cow herd. The Slaytons’ Beardance cattle operation consists of 50 cows, half of which are Hereford and the remainder Angus and recipients. They sell bulls each year to commercial customers, who mainly have black cows, Paul says. Annually a few steers are kept, finished and sold in the strong niche market of locally grown beef. Replacements are kept, and the remainder are sold as youth show prospects or in a feeder calf pool, depending on the market and quality of the calves. Paul was elected to the AHA Board in 2006. He has served for several years as chairman of the Hereford Publications Inc. (HPI) board and on the breed improvement and marketing committees. “It was natural to stick me on the HPI committee because of my experience with the magazine in the past,” Paul says. He says he is proud of how HPI has created additional income through Creative Services. “While advertising has declined, creative services has picked up the slack so that every year (I’ve been on the Board) has been a profitable year for HPI. “The marketing committee has also been really fun because they’ve developed, since I’ve been on the Board, two really great advertising campaigns,” Paul says. “And it is really exciting, and it’s a direct result of what the breed improvement committee has been working on. There’s all this data and research that’s been compiled and now we can talk facts instead of perceptions on how efficient Herefords are. And we can put some monetary values on why Hereford, in a crossbreeding program, is real and useful. There are a lot of issues that both committees get involved in, and it’s really the heart and soul of the industry.” Paul’s experience on the Board has been aided by his position with the Pennsylvania Beef Council. continued on page 34...

Stewards of the Land Paul and Bette Slayton received the Pennsylvania Cattlemen’s Association (PCA) 2009 Environmental Stewardship Award at PCA’s annual membership meeting in State College. The Slaytons’ Beardance Hereford and Angus operation includes flat and rolling pastures, forested mountain ground, four mountain-fed streams and a 1-acre pond. Working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Department of Environmental Protection, the Slaytons have established 21 stream crossings, which include 11 cattle crossings and 10 bridges; four miles of stream bank fencing; and 8,300 feet of cross fencing for rotational grazing systems. Nowhere on the farm do cattle have access to drinking water in the streams other than at crossings or from stock tanks with gravity-fed, piped-in water from the mountain streams. “It’s really important to us — conservation practices for soil, water and wildlife,” Paul says. “So ever since we’ve lived here, we’ve tried to fix our stream banks and partner with USDA conservation programs to plant trees and to continue to build a conservation plan for the whole farm. Now we’re finally just about finished with everything as far as fencing, rotational grazing systems and conservation practices.” Using the Conservation Reserve Environmental Protection Program and working independently, the Slaytons have planted more than 1,800 trees on their farm since 1995. Selective timbering in 2006 took out rotting, diseased, mature and low-quality trees and enabled new forest growth for more browsing area for mountain wildlife including deer, bear, turkeys, rabbits, squirrels and other species native to the area. “We want to make sure that we conserve the wildlife habitat because we have a lot of wildlife in our area. We don’t want to disturb the habitat but even enhance it, if we can.” HW

Sometimes, though, Paul’s commitment to the beef council interferes with Hereford events he would like to attend. He says someday he would like to retire or slow down his work with the beef council and spend more time with cattle and on the farm and attend more Hereford events,

but he doesn’t have a schedule of when he will do that. “Someday, my dream would be to retire from this position to become a full-time cattle producer.” Although, that would mean he’d have to end his 30-plus-year career in people management. HW

with Paul Slayton

What do you think we need to work on as a breed? I think, as an Association, we need to continually strive to develop revenue sources where our revenues are not just from registrations, transfers, memberships and such but we are also providing services to other associations or affiliates that have a need that they are too small and need to contract with other organizations for services. ABRA (American Beef Records Association, AHA’s wholly owned subsidiary that offers registry and performance recording services to five American breed associations) is a great example of how Craig (Huffhines) and staff have been creative about putting together what we can do because we have the human resources to do things that we are doing for ourselves that we can hire out to do for others. I think that is a great example of how we have to continue to offer those contracted services to develop additional revenue streams. I think, as an Association, that’s paramount of importance because it’s costing more and more to operate every year. I am not sure I am the expert on what our breed needs to work on to improve our baseline cattle traits. Personally I know what I want to do, but I am not sure I should tell everyone else that we need to increase our carcass database, we need to select for better calving ease or lighter birthweights — some of the things that I am plugging into our herd. But that is not necessarily a solution to a lot of people. I guess what makes the Association work so well is that everybody has the same tools to use. Everyone can use all the tools available to make a better breed and breed better cattle quicker. And if they don’t, they are going to fall behind and not have the genetics and the base they need to contribute to what the commercial industry is demanding.

What are the biggest challenges you’ve faced as a Board member? The biggest challenge that our Board has had to face in my four-year term was the advent of genetic defects coupled with the technology to test and identify the carriers. The other thing that I think history will show, because I am an optimist, I think that we guided our breed through a devastating economic recession. Last year it was pretty surprising news

34 Hereford World / November 2009

that Hereford registrations were up. That’s unexpected because of the economically depressed business climate and depressed markets resulting in lower beef demand. There’s a number of things that we should be proud of in spite of the negative business climate; our registrations and transfers, due to encouraging sales, are pretty healthy. History will show what the challenges were and I think that the period that I spent on the Board will be known for how the breed leadership, staff and breeders together determined how to handle genetic defects — that was easy to understand and manage — and how to breed around those problems.

When you were elected to the Board, what were your goals and how have those changed over the years? I really didn’t come on to the Board with any agenda. I was flattered to serve, but as far as what my goals were for the Association I can’t really say that I had any aspirations to accomplish any one thing during my time on the Board. I wanted to be a team player, and I thought my background enabled me to provide input and direction. One of the great things about our Association is they are abreast of the needs so all you do is need to just buckle down and provide whatever input you can and advice as a breeder. I think my 10 years of background having worked for the Hereford Association really qualified me very well in that I could speak on behalf of all breeders whether they be small or large, horned or polled or east, west, north or south.

What do you think it takes to be a good leader? I think a leader has to not be driven by ego at all. What I perceive to make a great leader is that you’ve got to be able to follow and lead and provide insightful understanding on what the issues are, support and understand others while providing positive, constructive input to the process. To be a good listener is critical. While hoping to reach consensus may often be the driver, it’s also important to note that consensus, while the popular opinion, does not always result in the right answer. HW

Tradition

Eva Hammon continues the legacy started by her father and uncle nearly 95 years ago. by Angie Stump Denton

Eva Hammon is a polled Hereford promoter. Through the years she has been recognized for her efforts promoting the breed and for her success as a Hereford breeder. In 2006 she was named third place Poll-ette of the Year, and in 2009 the National Hereford Show in Ft. Worth was dedicated in her honor.

D

Eva’s granddaughters, Keely and Kailey, have started their own Hereford herd.

36 Hereford World / November 2009

Dedicated, patient and loving is how granddaughter Keely Hammon describes her grandmother, Eva. “But most of all she loves polled Hereford cattle.” Eva Hammon, Jacksboro, Texas, is passionate about polled Herefords, a love that her dad passed to her and that she has passed to her three sons and grandchildren. Eva’s father, Bill Johnson, and her uncle, Lewis, owned the world’s largest herd of registered polled Herefords for more than 20 years. The brothers, who began with a horned Hereford bull and 30 heifers in 1915, eventually built their herd to more than 1,000 head, running on some 16,000 acres. Their first polled Herefords were added in 1919. Beginning in 1927, the herd led the world in number of polled Herefords registered annually,

averaging 411 head per year for 20 years. In 1947 the ranch recorded more than 600 polled Herefords, and during that fiscal year for the American Polled Hereford Association (APHA), only 19 of the 48 states registered more cattle than the Johnson Bros.’ herd did itself. Eva explains that her dad was the ranch manager and Lewis was the office manager. During the depression, the brothers were instrumental in helping the APHA stay afloat. Instead of following their contemporaries and registering fewer calves, they registered more. Eva boasts her uncle wrote a letter to all APHA members and encouraged them to pay their membership dues and continue to register cattle to help the APHA survive the depression. Lewis was a member of APHA board of directors, serving as chairman from 1936-37. Bill was a director of the Texas Polled Hereford Association for many years. For their dedication to the polled Hereford industry, the brothers were inducted into the APHA Hall of Fame in 1978. The Johnson Bros. partnership was dissolved in 1949, after which Lewis’ half was sold to J.D. Craft and then dispersed at public auction. Bill died in 1949, but the herd continued as the W.R. Johnson Polled Hereford Ranch, under the guidance of Eva’s mother, Gladys, and Eva. Eva and her husband, Blake, lived in the Ft. Worth area for many years. Blake was involved in the oil industry. They had three sons — Bill, Blake III and Bob. www.hereford.org


I enjoy each day being here and working with the cattle. I plan to continue, with the help of my children and grandchildren, keeping the ranch active and working. I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.

In the early 80s, the couple moved back to the ranch, where Eva was raised. “I wanted to come back home and build back a herd of good Hereford cattle. I wanted to continue my father’s work,” she says. All three of her children also live in the Jacksboro area and are involved with the ranch. Son Blake is the ranch manager.

The ranch today Eva and her family have built the Hammon Ranch to include 100 registered and 100 commercial Hereford cows. They also farm about 700 acres of wheat. The Hammons have both a spring and a fall calving herd, and they utilize embryo transfer (ET) to propagate top genetics. About half the calves born each year are ET calves. “ET is a big part of our breeding program,” Eva explains. “We flush our top cows twice, then rebreed them to have a natural calf. We select donors based on performance numbers and conformation.” The Hammons market bulls private treaty as yearlings as well as participate in consignment sales. They have participated in the Oklahoma Hereford sale for eight years. Blake explains that the reason he likes Herefords is their disposition, their good milking qualities and, in his area, their tendency to sell easily. “We can’t keep bulls around here; we have a real demand for good Hereford bulls.” The Hammon family continues to show at state and national shows, a tradition Eva’s father and uncle started years ago. “Dad said showing is a form of advertising. You have to be known to be successful in the cattle business; www.hereford.org

if we didn’t show, we’d only be known locally,” Eva says.

Passing the passion Eva’s grandchildren are also developing a passion for the Hereford breed. Granddaughters, Keely, 16, and Kailey, 12, are members of the Texas Junior Polled Hereford Association and have been Texas Polled Hereford Sweethearts. “I have been showing Herefords since I was old enough to help with Nana’s cow-calf pairs,” Keely says. “I’m proud to be a fourth generation Hereford breeder.” The girls have started their own Hereford herd. Eva’s grandsons, C.J. and Bill, are also starting to take an interest in the ranch and plan to start showing Herefords when they get a little older.

Giving back Eva does all she can to support youth — locally and beyond. “I think it is important for us to do our part and help youth,” Eva says. In 2008 Eva donated a heifer to be given to a Hereford youth as part of

the National Organization of Poll-ettes scholarship program. Lucky junior Paige Morrison from Gilead, Ohio was the recipient of the generous donation. Eva also supports school and 4-H fundraising projects as well as hosts judging teams at the ranch. “I enjoy each day being here and working with the cattle,” Eva says. “I plan to continue, with the help of my children and grandchildren, keeping the ranch active and working. I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.” Keely and Kailey both agree with their Nana, as they hope to keep the Hereford tradition continuing for years to come. HW

...Breed Focus continued from page 4

have an effect on Angus traits do not necessarily have the same effect on other breeds of cattle — it stands to reason because breeds are different and that difference explains why hybrids consistently have higher production levels than the average of their straightbred parents. So in order to be included in this new “space race,” the Hereford breed is going to have to get more involved in the discovery of these production genes.

• AHA should address those functional defect problems that the commercial industry may still have a poor perception of such as cancer eye and determine their frequency in the breed, whether the defect is really a problem, and if so, whether genetic markers can be identified that predict the risk of occurrence that might be incorporated in a stayability EPD.

• AHA should consider establishing research agreements with university research institutions or companies that have the resources to make such discovery and are willing to work with the AHA in improving the current system of genetic evaluation.

• AHA members should collect DNA samples on every animal in their operations and securely store that properly identified DNA in the event we may need it for whatever reason.

Plans for remaining on the cutting edge AHA has invested heavily in research projects in recent years and will continue to organize sire evaluation tests for the purpose of measuring traits, proving young sires, identifying unique individuals and collecting genetic population information for future genome discovery projects. Below is a list of a few ideas that we should consider as we advance:

• AHA must coordinate with our member breeders in continuing to build a large national Hereford research population of sire progeny and to collect all economically relevant traits including feed efficiency on the progeny while building a databank of DNA tissue on these populations.

• AHA should capture all of the information we currently have scattered among breeders that have properly formed contemporary groups, excellently measured production trait data including feed intake data and a DNA sample on those individuals tested and include all information in a databank.

In conjunction with the most recent AHA membership meeting, the AHA Board, along with a few selected breeders and scientists, discussed areas of importance in an effort to develop a strategy for moving forward. In addition, the Hereford Research Foundation, a newly formed entity within the Hereford Youth Foundation of America, has been established to determine how to fund such conceptual research plans so that the AHA and the Hereford breed are organized with priorities that will give the breed the most “bang for its buck.” Reports on those discussions will be in future Hereford World issues. The Hereford breed is too valuable to be lost in corporate prioritization plans. The packing industry seems to have gone in this direction as its members all compete with one another to market black-hided cattle. I’m certain that the value of the Hereford breed within the industry is extremely bullish as scientists work to identify those traits that drive real profitability to the industry and as we get away from some of the single-trait selection the industry is enamored with today.

Celebrating 100 Years of Hereford Publishing This month we continue to commemorate the 100th year of Hereford publishing. Here are some highlights printed in the Nov. 1, 1910, issue: • In a Kansas City Times article including comments from all breed secretaries, Secretary C.R. Thomas was asked why he thought Hereford was the best beef breed. Thomas replied, “I do not think that the Hereford breed is a better breed than any other beef breed, but I know it, and I know it because it has been demonstrated time and time again.” He went on to share facts supporting his answer. Nov. 15, 1910, issue: • Murdo Mackenzie, manager of Matador Land & Cattle, said during the 1910 Annual Meeting that he prefers Hereford cattle because of the prepotency of the Hereford bull and the prolificness of the Hereford cow. His calf crop on the range usually was 70-80% when using Hereford bulls compared to 40% when he used bulls of another breed. — Angie Stump Denton, editor www.hereford.org

Tomas “Poncho” Toucedo has spent years helping Hereford cattle look great in the showring. by Tosha Powell

S

Since its conception, America has been known to give people of all denominations equal opportunity for freedom. With settlers from all around the world, the U.S. is sometimes referred to as the “melting pot” of the world. In 1955 Tomas Guillermo Toucedo was offered the chance of a lifetime to leave his home in Argentina and travel to Senatobia, Miss., for the summer. His godfather had connections with someone at CMR Polled Herefords, leading to a summer job for Toucedo. Toucedo grabbed the opportunity with both hands. That summer Toucedo learned about raising cattle and realized that it was something he could see himself doing on a day-to-day basis. He spent three months working at CMR, then returned home to Argentina. He was to return to law school that fall; however, he told his

father he wanted to return to the U.S. and continue working with his godfather’s cattle. And so he did. Eventually, Toucedo, or “Poncho,” as he became known as, returned to work for M.P. Moore at CMR Polled Herefords in Senatobia, Miss. Poncho served as herdsman and took his responsibilities very seriously, as he did his dedication to the cattle he managed. In 1961 Poncho became herdsman for Dean Thompsen at Thompsen Farms in Peru, Ind. “Though Poncho did all sorts of work on the farm, his main responsibility was to work our show cattle,” Thompsen says. “During his time he fitted many state and national champions. No one worked harder for us or tried to do a better job than Poncho.” While Poncho was working for Thompsen, the farm was able to register a bull for the Register of Merit. Out of 246 bulls listed, only 12 were polled, and one of Thompsen’s made that list, with the help of Poncho. “Poncho won the herdsman award at whatever show we went to,” Thompsen says. “He was such a hard worker and really did have a heart of gold. It was such a pleasure to have worked with him, and I am glad I can still call him friend.” Although he has been in the U.S. since 1955, Poncho still speaks with a heavy Spanish accent. The language barrier made things rough at times but was never a huge issue. “On occasion he would misunderstand something I would say, but for the most part, we spoke the same language: Hereford www.hereford.org


cattle,” Thompsen says. “Poncho would care the for cattle like they were his own kids.” Thompsen isn’t Poncho’s only previous employer willing to praise his name. A long list of cattlemen compliment the herdsman qualities in Poncho. While he was working for House of Herefords, he met young Susan Spanton Scherber, who served as the ranch secretary and showman. “I knew Tomas to be hardworking, honest and always presenting the cattle that we took on the show road to be at their best,” Scherber says. “When it came to grooming, he was a taskmaster. ‘Sue-san,’ as he called me, ‘You have to brush the hell of ’em to get their coats to look like velvet.’ So we did, and they really did look like velvet.” In 1972 the showing duo did well at the Wisconsin and Minnesota State Fairs and exhibited at the Chicago International. Poncho won the Herdsman Award and the Klussendorf Award for Herdsmanship in Wisconsin. The next year Scherber won the awards. “But I know it would not have been possible without Tomas as my co-worker,” she says. “Between the two of us, we won the Klussendorf and the Herdsman Awards three years in a row. We had a lot of fun trying to outdo each other, and as a result, the House of Herefords string always looked pretty damn good.” The House of Herefords saw a great show year in 1974 with Scherber and Poncho working together, winning best six head in the polled Hereford show. Later in the week, the ranch also won best six head over all breeds with six yearling bulls. “We had also won premier breeder and exhibitor,” Scherber says. “One thing about Tomas, he is a pretty mellow fellow, but he was ecstatic about those wins. More so, I think, than the personal wins he had made for himself. He is a very www.hereford.org

modest man, although I think he was more excited about how well I did than how he did himself.” They may not work together anymore, but Scherber and Poncho developed a friendship that has lasted through the years. Poncho then returned to Argentina to spend time with his mother and sister. Through a mutual friend, Rob Helm of Candy Meadow Farms in Lexington, Tenn., heard Poncho was wanting to return to the U.S. to get closer to his son and daughter. Helm was a little apprehensive to hire someone without ever having met him, but Poncho came highly recommended and was willing to travel halfway around the world to work, so Helm took his chances. Looking back, Helm says it is a decision he will never regret. “Tom’s work ethic and attention to detail was beyond reproach,” Helm says. “He did his job and took care of the cattle as if they were his own.

and he was never satisfied. He was always looking for a better way. The welfare of the cattle always came first with Tom, even if that meant sacrifice on his part.” Helm recalls one occasion — not too long after Poncho began

work for him — taking a young bull to the Tennessee State Fair and the bull not fairing very well. “Tom could see the disappointment that I felt. He said, ‘If you give me a chance with this bull, we will bring him back next year and see what happens.’ I agreed, and when we returned the next year — he was champion bull,” Helm says. “To say the least, I was very pleased. But to see the happiness and sense of pride in Tom’s face made it special.” Glen Klippenstein of Maysville, Mo., recalls Poncho as a miracle worker in the showring. “Poncho’s sense of pride goes back to his Argentine roots,” Klippenstein says. “They are really competitive and have a good feel for cattle.” Poncho later went on to work for Quirk Land & Cattle Co. in Hastings, Neb., and Huber Ranch, Schneider, Ind. He has also helped at production sales for O’Neill Angus in Logan, Iowa. However, after many years of working for others, he now has his own cattle in cooperation with his daughter, Sara, and her husband, Alan Eggerss. ET Polled Herefords is located in Avoca, Iowa, and although it may be a smaller herd, its owners know how to compete with the big boys. “This year and in the past years, we generally take six to eight head to a show,” Sara says. “That means that the majority of our herd is at the fair. Basically, what you are seeing is it!”

But don’t be fooled by the herd’s size. Just this year at the Iowa State Fair, Poncho and his family took home top honors including the following: reserve champion cow-calf pair, premier breeder and premier exhibitor. This year marks the fourth consecutive premier breeder award for ET Polled Herefords. Also showing at their local county fair, the family has won awards such as reserve champion bull, champion and reserve champion cowcalf pair, along with premier breeder and exhibitor awards. “Tomas and I have kept in touch over the last 35 years with phone calls three to four times a year,” Scherber says. “Nothing made me happier than to hear how well he had done with his family’s Herefords at the Iowa State Fair. I can tell you, no one is more deserving of finally showing his own cattle and doing so well after making other’s cattle look so good for years.” No matter whom you talk to that knows Poncho you hear the same report: passion for the cattle industry, pride in his cattle, infectious enthusiasm. “I just think the world of Poncho,” Klippenstein says. “He could make 2 + 2 = 5. He has done a great job with his cattle in Iowa. He really knows how to make the best of his cattle’s genetic situation. He’s getting some age on him, but I don’t think he’s ready to hang up his saddle quite yet.” That Argentine pride fairs well at cattle shows, but another place

Poncho’s pride lies is with his six grandchildren. And they share the same pride when it comes to talking about their “Cedo.” “My grampa is the greatest grandpa ever; he is so fun,” Nathan Eggerss says. “He is giving us advice all the time. When we are outside playing some type of sport, he comes and plays even though he is old and says his legs hurt all the time. He still has time to play with his favorite grandchildren. He buys us donuts about every day because he likes them and he knows we like them. His cattle are very important to him.” Poncho’s son, Dino “Tux” Toucedo, doesn’t work on the family ranch but is always available to help at shows and stays close to spend time with the family. “There’s a lot to say about Cedo; I love him dearly,” Tux says. “My dad has a passion for cattle. He gave up school to come to the U.S. to work with cattle. He was studying to be a lawyer. It’s what his dad wanted him to do. “Cedo is very serious when he works, but is really a big kid at heart. For someone that is close to 80 years old with a very bad knee, throw a soccer ball at him and watch him play like a kid with his grandkids.” At home with his cattle is where Poncho is most comfortable. His hard work and dedication to his family’s herd is well known by his friends. Daughter Sara says, “My dad is very compassionate and very cautious about his cows. We have a little grass lot that has electric fence on three sides, and when the weatherman says that there is going to be a storm, those cows have to come to a different lot that has ‘real’ fencing! And we know how often the weatherman is wrong, so do you know how often we move those cows?” Light-hearted and loved by many, Tomas Toucedo, or Poncho, or Cedo, or Tom depending on whom you ask, can set a great example to all he knows on how to bring his love for the cattle to day-to-day relationships. “If we could all be a little bit more like Poncho, the world might be a little bit better of a place,” Klippenstein says.
