ereford breeders today are focused on producing a product that is useful to the commercial producer, feeder and packer. “Our members are striving to raise cattle that can thrive on the resources available to them and that will sire offspring that are profitable in all segments of the industry,” says Bill King, a Hereford breeder from Stanley, N.M., and

president of the American Hereford Association (AHA). “Modern day Herefords are a result of our members focusing on the things our customers were demanding,” he explains. “We are producing the genetics that will do all things a commercial producer needs, including hybrid vigor when crossed on black cows, increased fertility and improved feed efficiency.”

October 2009; Vol. 100, No. 5 Bill is owner of King Herefords, which is a 300-plus head registered Hereford cow-calf ranch. He also manages 1,000-plus commercial cows, 350 registered Angus and Charolais cows, a 2,000-head stocker operation, and a 6,000-head feedlot. In addition, the ranch includes 4,000 acres of irrigated land. “Bill is an ambassador for the entire beef industry,” says Jack Ward, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. “With both a seedstock and commercial cow herd as well as a cattle feeding operation, he understands the challenges and opportunities in all segments of the beef industry.” During Bill’s tenure on the AHA Board, the Association has devoted time and finances to document the value of heterosis in real-world commercial settings. “As a Board we have demonstrated our emphasis on improving and documenting feed efficiency and economic qualities with projects like Harris Ranch, Circle A and Amana,” Bill says. “Those projects have given us real data to prove the Hereford advantage.” Bill credits AHA’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program for helping breeders become more accountable and knowledgeable about their genetics. “With the data available, thanks to TPR, we are able to supply commercial producers cattle that will do well for them.” Along with being the efficiency experts, Bill says a real strength of the Hereford breed is the fertility and mothering ability of the Hereford female. “As the Circle A and Harris Ranch data proved, the Herefordsired female has a 7% advantage in conception rate and, according to Vern Pierce from the University of Missouri, a net income of $51 more per cow per year,” Bill says. “Those are real numbers that I can use when I sell bulls, and they make a difference.”

Cattleman by birth Growing up, Bill enjoyed helping his dad and uncles with their King Bros. Ranch, which included cow-calf, stocker and feeding operations. In 1968, when Bill was a junior in high school, he purchased three continued on page 18...

Introducing BuyHereford.com “Online” used to refer to our nosey neighbor down the road who eavesdropped on my parents’ party line telephone call, but that was more than 30 years ago. “Wireless” used to refer to my dad’s preference toward bailing twine as opposed to bailing wire because he could cut it off with his pocket knife, which he carried in his front pocket, instead of carrying pliers around in his back pocket, which eventually resulted in a rip in his pick-up seat, followed by a stream of expletives.

After the advent and global adoption of the Internet, the definitions of those two terms — online and wireless — have changed forever in meaning and, more profoundly, have changed our lives forever. Most all of us know what I’m talking about; it’s online purchasing using a computer or handheld device connected to the Internet with a cable or wireless digital connection. If you don’t know about this technology yet, and I’m sure there are a lot of you who don’t, then our job at American Hereford Association

(AHA) is to get you comfortable with the listing, selling and purchasing of livestock, semen, embryos and possibly even equipment on the Internet. The use of technology to auction items over the World Wide Web can only be described as a massive opportunity. The Internet provides for everyone, whether you’re a large seedstock supplier or a small hobby breeder, the ability to conduct business on a global scale no matter where you’re located. We have all heard of eBay. You can find anything in the world that

someone might want to purchase on eBay. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a credit card, and in a matter of minutes, you can purchase from new and used products of every classification imaginable. Now, livestock auction items are finding their way to your offices, living rooms or right there at your kitchen table where you can be connected through your wireless laptop computer. BuyHereford.com is scheduled to be launched in early October as the official AHA online auction site. Monthly, the AHA will be offering breeders the opportunity to list females, bulls, cow-calf pairs, donor dams, embryos, semen, picks of the herd or flush rights. Commercial female lots or feeder cattle may eventually find their way to the auction site. Furthermore, show tack and equipment, chutes, trailers, or feed supplies may even wind up selling at this marketplace designed to attract those people who may find value in what is offered. On Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, the AHA plans to host the very first BuyHereford.com consignment auction. As I write this column, regional fieldmen are developing a show list of prospects to drive high profile interest for the very first sale offering. The AHA Board and staff are very excited about this new business venture designed to provide members and possibly commercial customers a wonderful opportunity to conduct business together. What AHA offers consignors is exposure: both national exposure and possibly global exposure if you think about our new Pan-American Genetic Evaluation relationship with Hereford Associations in Argentina, Uruguay and our friends in Canada. Here are a few answers to some questions as we start this new venture: Who runs the site? Kevin Wendt, a bonded professional auctioneer and owner of The Wendt Group, has contracted his services to the AHA. Wendt will have a team of customer service people led by representative Tyler Humphries, who will work with breeders to post their listing on the site.

Little Details Can Have Big Effect This issue of the Hereford World is being delivered at a time when many of you are very busy with harvest, weaning or perhaps in the middle of fall calving or maybe even doing all three. Yet, with all the irons in the fire, you cannot forget to pay attention to the details that can really add to the bottom line of your operations. Whether it be the corn crop, hay crop or calf crop, you have made the decision to incorporate the right genetics to produce the most yield that your environment will

allow. Unfortunately, when you do your homework and make the right decisions with your genetics, your job will not be done. Management can still be the difference in success. Paying attention to the details in whatever you do can really be a driving force in an operation’s bottom line. One of the biggest drivers of profit in a cattle operation, after incorporating the right genetics, is the attention that is paid to herd health. In most cases a group of calves in the feedlot with a death loss of less

than 2% are the ones that still have a chance to be profitable. The old saying that feedlots know more about your herd than you do seems to hold true even today. Whether it is a show heifer calf or a load of feeder steers, buyers do not like buying health problems. So, producers need to continue to fine tune health programs within their herds. Health programs take different shapes for different operations, but a proper health program starts at the cow level. There are a multitude of

pharmaceutical companies that offer comprehensive health programs. I would suggest you talk with your local veterinarian, sale barn operator, Extension specialist or even the pharmaceutical representative in your area to build a program that fits your needs and your customers’ needs. As I write this column, the American Hereford Association’s (AHA) fiscal year has come to an end. It has been a good year with the demand for Hereford cattle continuing to increase. As times become a little tougher, commercial cattlemen have begun to look again at crossbreeding schemes that can add to their bottom lines. During the past few years, the AHA has put together numerous projects that have shown the value of Hereford genetics in crossbreeding and predominately Angus-based commercial herds. This demand has been made possible by the commitment of Hereford breeders to provide genetics that are useful within the industry. This commitment to genetic improvement in the areas of calving ease, adequate growth and carcass traits has given commercial cattlemen the confidence they need to continue to add Hereford genetics to their programs.

New tools to be introduced during breeders’ forum The breed improvement committee members continue to challenge themselves to add tools that will assist AHA members in making decisions that can make genetic improvement and ultimately add value to Hereford cattle. On Saturday, Oct. 31, at 7:30 a.m., a breeders’ forum during the AHA Annual Meeting weekend will include the introduction of two new tools that will be added to the genetic analysis. These tools will look at ways to document cow herd fertility and survivability. The research has been done during the past couple of years and these tools will be useful because of the commitment Hereford breeders have made to whole-herd reporting. In addition, the breed improvement committee has been working on the development of a research foundation committee that will be part of the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA). It is our intent to grow a pool of funds that can be used outside the AHA budget to work in the area of breed improvement. These extra dollars could let us expand our research in the areas of heterosis, efficiency, fertility, health or any other economically relevant trait that could add value to Hereford genetics. The opportunities are endless for the Hereford breed. As times have become tougher, cattlemen begin to remember the value of Hereford genetics. Keep up the good work and we will see you on Halloween.

October 2009 / HEREFORD WORLD 9


by Craig Huffhines, AHA executive vice president chuffhin@hereford.org

CHB Q&A — A Look at the Program’s Success, Challenges The Certified Hereford Beef program began as an American Hereford Association (AHA) marketing initiative in 1994, based on the findings of more than three years of Colorado State University research, which proved the superior eating quality and consistency of Hereford beef. The three-fold mission of the program was, and continues to be: 1) to provide consumers with consistently tender, juicy and flavorful beef products; 2) to enhance the marketing opportunities of food industry distributors, retailers and restaurateurs; and 3) to increase the demand for commercial Herefordinfluenced cattle. Here are some frequently asked questions about the program:

What are the CHB live animal specifications? 1) Cattle must have a predominately (51%) whiteface and exhibit white markings over the jaw, forehead and muzzle. White markings on any part of the hip, shoulder or side of the body such as spots, stripes or belts are not acceptable. 2) Cattle must be solid red, solid black or roan with a predominately whiteface. Whitefaced animals that are yellow, gray, brown, brindle, or smoke are ineligible. 3) Only steers and heifers of English beef-type breeding under 30 months of age qualify — an animal expressing dairy or Bos indicus type breeding is not acceptable. 4) To qualify, cattle may be either horned or polled. Bulls, bullocks or cows are not acceptable.

What are the CHB carcass specifications? 1) Slight 00 to Moderate 99 marbling score 2) Yield Grade 4 and leaner 3) 600-1,000 lb. carcass weight 4) No dark cutters 5) A maturity only

How do sales of CHB the last 10 years compare? CHB sales grew rapidly through 2005, but since that time sales have remained relatively flat (see Fig. 1). The 8 million lb. decline from 2005 to 2006 was due to the loss of a major retailer in New England after its meat director changed. CHB LLC has initiated a restructuring of the organization this year in order to address the issue of flat sales growth. A new management team has taken over the sales strategy, and already in three months time, we are beginning to see results.

How many retail outlets are offering CHB product? Currently 231 retail store outlets in 31 states have CHB in their meat cases (See Fig. 2). CHB product is also available in a growing line-up of food service distribution outlets (Fig. 3) that sell product to countless restaurants across the country. This has been where we’ve seen the most growth in clients the last two years. As the economy hopefully improves, we will see tremendous opportunity to get the CHB brand on restaurant menus across the country.

How many packing plants process CHB product? Three plants process CHB cattle including Greater Omaha Packing Co. Inc., located in Omaha, Neb., and two

Million pounds

10 Hereford World / October 2009

National Beef Packing Co. LLC plants, located in Dodge City and Liberal, Kan.

How many animals have been harvested the last 10 years? During the last 10 years, 2.68 million head of cattle have been harvested through CHB licensed packing plants. Of the 2.68 million head, more than 1.59 million carcasses have met CHB specifications (see Fig. 4). The CHB program is a powerful marketing strategy for the Association. It is difficult to measure what the annual value to the Hereford breed is by identifying more than 413,000 head of Hereford and baldie cattle for harvest and the certification of more than 243,000 carcasses whose beef is distributed to more than 36 states. I believe it would be a much different marketplace for Hereford and Herefordinfluenced cattle today if we had not worked so hard to sustain the growth of CHB and the current relationships we have with our packers, distributors and retail supermarket partners. No other breed other than Angus can claim such a demand for a product.

How many years has CHB LLC had a profit? CHB LLC has reported profitable years in three of the last 10. The first thing that every breeder of Hereford cattle needs to realize is CHB was never developed to generate a profit for the AHA. We hope for a breakeven. If we were showing major windfall profits, then we wouldn’t be doing our job of using every resource available to promote the product and the program. On average CHB LLC has borrowed $107,000 per year the last 10 years from the AHA to support the program. During that 10-year period,

the program has generated $ 7.6 million in revenue, all of which went back into the support of the brand and the promotion and sales efforts of the product. The investment over and above the revenue just mentioned amounts to about .67 cents per carcass certified or .40 cents per Hereford steer or heifer identified through the program. In most cases I believe that a 7 to 1 return on investment would be a homerun, but we also realize that the goal is still to do our best to breakeven each year. To mediate deficit spending, the CHB LLC board realizes that the current royalties received from our packers from every pound of CHB beef sold are not enough to support, promote and continue to prospect new sales of CHB. When we add new business, we must also add more cost in people and promotion. Therefore, under the new management team assembled in the last three months, new revenue streams are being pursued in the areas of value-added process meats, case ready product partnership and ground beef programs that will generate additional commissions to help support the brand. Incidentally, CHB LLC has budgeted and projects a profit for fiscal year-end 2010.

How is CHB priced in the marketplace compared to Angus cuts? CHB product is sold under two specifications: 1) the Classic product, which is a blend of Select and Choice beef, and 2) the CHB Choice program, which is predominantly a low- and mid-Choice product. The bulk of the product is sold under the Classic product

specification. Cuts from the Classic chuck and round are priced very competitively to commodity U.S. Choice beef while the cuts from the higher priced loin and rib carry a premium to U.S. Choice of 10-25 cents per lb. Today, there are 35 different U.S. Department of Agriculture recognized Angus programs ranging in specification from low quality Standard

grade to high Choice. CHB would be much more competitively priced than the high Choice Angus programs and similar to many of the Choice Angus programs. The goal of the packer is to sell a balanced mix of cuts at a premium that will generate at least $30 to $35 per head of added value over and above commodity cattle.

Fig. 4: CHB total cattle harvested and certified 1995-2008

Hereford or Hereford-influenced cattle that produce a high Choice or Prime product are sorted off into other packer brands commanding a higher premium than CHB.

Does the AHA receive a per head charge for the CHB cattle in the CHB designated feedlots? CHB LLC does not charge feedlots for helping them locate cattle. We did at one time ask for a $2 per head service fee, but that has been discontinued since feeders have had very tough economic times during the last year. HW

...Hereford Strengths continued from cover

Hereford heifers that were the start of the family’s registered herd. Through the years, the registered herd grew with the main function of producing bulls for the family’s commercial herd. In the early 80s, Bill started offering bulls private treaty and continues to do so today. “The focus of our registered program has always been to raise cattle that are good for the commercial man. Cattle that will

do good on grass, in the feedlot and all the way through the program,” Bill says. Bill has passed on his love for the beef industry to his three daughters — Becky Spindle, Jenny Caldes and Stacy King. All three girls were active in the junior Hereford program, with Becky serving on the National Junior Hereford Association board. “The best part of the junior program is that it is a family

project,” Bill says. “In today’s fast-paced world, there’s not a lot of time for family. It’s something we still value, the together time as a family.” Today Becky and her husband, Tom, help manage the ranch and take care of the registered cattle. The next generation of Kings participated in the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Tulsa this summer. Becky’s daughter, Jordan Spindle, enjoyed her first JNHE. Bill has four other grandkids who will likely follow in Jordan’s footsteps someday.

A family of leaders

Family time is very important to the Kings. Pictured here is Bill's parents along with his daughters, son-in-laws and grandkids (l to r): Tom Spindle; Alice King (Bill's mom who passed this spring); Jenny and Lincoln Caldes; Abbie, Jordan, Cash, Stacy and Charli Spindle; Bruce King (Bill's dad); Stacy King and Josh Caldes. During his tenure on the AHA Board, Bill King was instrumental in navigating AHA policy and research efforts that were critical in protecting breed integrity as well as creating top-ofmind industry awareness of the economic benefits of using Hereford in crossbreeding systems.

“Bill knows what is happening in all aspects of the industry, and he has brought a calming leadership presence to the AHA Board that has instilled confidence in all of us who have had a chance to work with him,” says Craig Huffhines, AHA executive vice president. “His experience has brought a sound industry business sense to the AHA Board.” Huffhines explains Bill comes from a family devoted to public service, which has really contributed to Bill’s naturalborn leadership skills. Bill’s dad, Bruce, was a three-time New Mexico governor. Bruce was first elected in 1970, then re-elected in 1978 and 1990. Bill’s brother, Gary, is currently serving as the New Mexico attorney general. “Bill is a true industry leader, serving not only on the national scale but in his home state, where he has been instrumental in leading the New Mexico Cattle Growers and brand

board for many years, protecting the rights of fellow cattlemen and farmers,” Huffhines says.

As a Board member “As a board member and president, Bill has been a real asset to the Hereford breed,” says Ward. “He supports all entities of the Association while being fiscally responsible. He is always positive and brings a wealth of knowledge to the position. I have personally enjoyed the no-nonsense approach that he has brought to the Board.” While on the Board, King has served on numerous committees and chaired the finance committee. “During the last four years, Bill has been instrumental in navigating our policy and research efforts that were critical in protecting the integrity of the breed and our organization as well as creating top of mind industry awareness of the economic benefits of the Hereford breed used in crossbreeding systems,” Huffhines says. “I think that we will look back someday on the tenure that Bill King and his fellow board members served as a period of time when the Hereford breed really began to turn the corner on commercial demand. It’s been a real privilege for me to work with the caliber of a man as Bill.” Bill says his recipe for continued success for AHA and the Hereford breed is to continue the progress made in the last four to five years in creating commercial industry demand for Hereford genetics. He also says it is important to continue to allow the junior program to grow and prosper, as it is the premier junior program in the country. HW

Q&A with AHA President Bill King Before he retires from the American Hereford Association (AHA) Board Nov. 3, Bill King answers some questions about his tenure on the Board and the future of the Hereford breed and AHA.

Q:

In April 2005 AHA developed a strategic plan; as a Board and staff, how have we worked to accomplish those strategies?

A: Profitability is what drives the commercial cow-

calf and feeding industries. During the last five years, the Board has focused on proving the profitability of Hereford genetics in crossbreeding systems, which was a priority in the strategic plan. With the data the AHA is collecting from research projects such as the Harris Ranch heterosis project and the feed efficiency trials at the University of Missouri and Circle A Ranch, the Association is documenting the Hereford advantage and then is using that data to promote the breed and raise awareness in the commercial industry about the value of Hereford. The dollars AHA spends on research, promotion and advertising are working to increase the demand for Hereford genetics and, thus, increase profits for AHA members like myself.

18 Hereford World / October 2009

Since the strategic planning session, we have seen an increased demand for Hereford bulls and a change in commercial perception about Hereford cattle. I think the time is right to review the plan and update the Association’s initiatives for 2010 and beyond. Our next challenge is genomics and how the Hereford breed utilizes this new technology.

Q: How would you summarize the last 12 months? A: The economy has been the biggest challenge

the last 12 months for all Americans, not just cattle producers. I’m proud that as an Association, we have held our own under the current economic climate. This fiscal year we experienced an increase in registrations and membership, from the reports I hear, I think we’ll be the only breed that can report an increase this year, which is very exciting and a real feather in our hat. As a Hereford breed we can celebrate some key events this year, including the release of the Circle A Ranch heterosis project data, the media event we hosted in April and the release of the first Pan-American Cattle Evaluation this summer. It is an exciting time to be in the Hereford business.

Q:

What do we need to do to continue the increased demand for Hereford genetics?

A:

If we are going to continue to survive as a breed, we need to focus on delivering a product that will be useful to the commercial producer, feeder and packer. As their needs change, we need to change to meet those needs so our breed can continue to prosper. We must continue to produce cattle that are efficient and able to survive on the resources commercial ranches have to work with. Our focus needs to be to offer genetics that will bring the commercial producer profits. We must service our customers. This industry is churning so fast, and we don’t want to end up like the Duroc hog. We want to be part of the final mix and be useful to the success of the beef industry. We have a lot of bright young people in our industry, and they will continue to lead us in the right direction. HW

Managing Herd Health When Times are Bad…or Good

Veterinarian recommends producers implement health practices when they will deliver maximum benefit, not based on convenience. by Troy Smith

M

ost agricultural economists say key indicators suggest better times ahead for people in the cow business. Declining U.S. cattle numbers mean more limited beef supplies, which should push beef and cattle prices higher. Complicating things is this worldwide economic recession, which has dampened demand for beef domestically and in foreign markets. But now the pundits claim the recession is starting to turn around. When it does, fundamental economics ought to work again, in favor of beef producers.

Cow people are ready for better times. For many, profitability has been an increasingly challenging pursuit. Even when cattle prices were higher, producers watched much of their revenue go toward higher production costs. Fuel, feed and fertilizer prices soared. Land costs, including pasture rental rates and real estate taxes, kept climbing. And for several years now, drought has severely reduced forage production in various parts of the country, putting another obstacle in the path toward profitability.

Watson Langford says health practices applied to their 400 registered cows and each year’s calf crop emphasize disease prevention, to minimize treatment costs and losses associated with compromised performance and deaths.

20 Hereford World / October 2009

Pressured to tighten their belts, plenty of producers have looked for ways to improve efficiency. They’re scrutinizing expenditures more carefully and looking for opportunities to trim production costs. Cutting unnecessary expenses is wise at any time, but some folks tend to avoid buckling down to do it until survival of their business is in jeopardy. When looking for ways to cut costs, producers often focus on feed, which can account for 70-80% of a cow-calf operation’s total expenditures. They might also look hard for ways to trim expenses associated with an animal health program. Some producers probably could cut some waste from their health management programs. Others might realize much benefit from upgrading their practices. There is, however, no such thing as a one-size-fits-all herd health protocol. It’s largely a matter of managing risk. And the risks associated with animal disease and parasites vary among herds for a lot of reasons, including differences in location, climate and management goals. Consequently, it’s appropriate for managers of different operations to implement different practices. To illustrate the point, consider a couple of family operations in Oklahoma. Both Langford Herefords, near Okmulgee, and Jacobs Ranch, near Sulphur,

depend heavily on native range dominated by tall grass species, and the average annual precipitation at both locations is similar — about 40 inches (in.) per year. Both operations consult with local veterinarians on matters of animal health, but they take very different, customized approaches to managing herd health. “My granddad and my dad always told me you can’t starve a profit out of a cow,” says Watson Langford, who partners with parents, Leon and Suzy, in their registered seedstock operation. “I’d say the same logic applies to a health program. It’s not a place where I’m willing to skimp. Cutting corners could cost us a lot more money later on.” Langford says health practices applied to their 400 registered cows and each year’s calf crop emphasize disease prevention, to minimize treatment costs and losses associated with compromised performance and deaths. For breeding females, Langford explains, it’s all about helping enhance reproductive performance and the passive disease immunity delivered to calves through colostrum. Prior to the spring breeding season, the regimen includes vaccinations for viral respiratory diseases, including infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) and bovine viral diarrhea (BVD), which can contribute to embryonic death and abortion. Langford also vaccinates against vibriosis and leptospirosis, diseases that also threaten pregnancy. Vitamin injections and dewormer also are administered prior to breeding. When females are pregnancy tested, deworming is repeated and a leptospirosis booster is given. Langford says the area’s relatively high rainfall, and an abundance of standing water poses an increased risk of exposure to leptospirosis. Anaplasmosis, spread by ticks, flies and mosquitoes, also can be a problem in the region, so chorotetracycline (antibiotic) delivered through a mineral supplement to battle infection during the insect season. Vaccination against anaplasmosis has also been used on an experimental basis. Calf vaccinations initiated at branding, when calves are about 3 months of age, include blackleg and other clostridial www.hereford.org


diseases (7-way), the viral respiratory diseases mentioned earlier and pinkeye. Calves are dewormed at branding and again at weaning when another round of 7-way and viral vaccinations are given. Booster vaccinations are given to calves three weeks after weaning. Heifer calves also receive leptospirosis vaccinations at weaning and a subsequent booster shot. From there, replacement heifers fall under the same routine as the cows and are processed pre-breeding and again when pregnancy tested. “It’s a pretty extensive program and it’s not cheap,” Langford says. “But I’d much rather spend a little up front, on prevention, than have high treatment costs and losses later.” As with most registered seedstock operations, investment in sought-after genetics and technologies, including artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET), means individual animals represent considerable potential value. Failure to realize that potential, due to hampered performance or death, represents considerable loss. “On this place, a decent bull calf is going to be worth around $2,500. That amount of money would pay for a lot of vaccine,” Langford says. Jason Jacobs says he doesn’t want to underestimate potential health challenges. He believes a “good” vaccination program addresses significant challenges, but is affordable. Along with his father, Bill, Jacobs manages a commercial herd of about 1,000 Hereford-Angus crossbred cows. Their calves are sold at weaning. “I think you can over-spend for products you may not need and do things that you won’t get paid for,” Jacobs offers. “I think you have to weigh the risk — the potential for loss — and that’s different for everybody. You determine if, for every dollar you spend, you’re going to get that dollar and more back.” Jacobs says the costs associated with time and labor, as well as products, have to be considered when implementing a practical health program. As a result Jacobs Ranch currently applies a protocol requiring mature cows to be processed only once per year, when pregnancy testing occurs. Calves too are vaccinated only once, at branding time. The exceptions are heifers retained as replacements, which are dewormed and vaccinated a second time, at weaning, for clostridial and viral respiratory diseases. Heifers aren’t touched again until they enter the herd with a calf at side. Then, they receive injectable dewormer and vaccinations against vibriosis and leptospirosis annually, when examined for pregnancy. The www.hereford.org

cows are actually dewormed in both spring and fall, with an injectable product while in the chute and once with an oral product delivered through a mineral supplement. “Our biggest concern is with diseases that interfere with conception and delivery of a live calf,” Jacobs explains. “We want to build a good foundation in the first-calf heifers, but we believe lepto and vibrio pose the most significant risks to reproduction in mature cows.” Interestingly, however, the younger Jacobs also runs another group of his own cows separately from the Jacobs Ranch herd. For that set of cows, the health program is more extensive and they visit the processing chute more often. “The health program is different because they are managed with different goals in mind,” Jacobs explains. “Jacobs Ranch raises all of its own replacements and is not expanding. The other herd is still growing, with a high rate of replacement. Artificial insemination is applied intensively and there is a considerable difference in the value, per head, of females in the different herds. The risks are different.”

“I think you have to weigh the risk — the potential for loss — and that’s different for everybody. You determine if, for every dollar you spend, you’re going to get that dollar and more back.” — Jason Jacobs Three generations of Jacobs family: Jason, John West and Bill.

on more densely populated operations. In a closed herd, or one where only virgin replacement animals are introduced, there is no opportunity for the spread of sexually transmitted disease, like vibriosis or trichomoniasis. Well, there is no opportunity as long as the producer’s cattle and those belonging to neighbors stay on their respective side of the fence. Even when vaccination against certain diseases or parasite control is determined to be cost-effective for a given operation, the producer wastes time and money when doing the

“A practice is cost-effective if it prevents losses greater than its cost, or if the producer gets paid for it through increased animal performance or marketability.” — Buddy Faries The Jacobs and Langford operations are cited here only as examples of how different producers must adopt health programs that fit their circumstances. Texas AgriLife Extension Veterinarian Buddy Faries advises producers to take advantage of their veterinarian’s expertise when evaluating risk and determining which health management practices will benefit their individual operations. Together, they can focus on practices that will be cost-effective. “A practice is cost-effective if it prevents losses greater than its cost, or if the producer gets paid for it through increased animal performance or marketability,” Faries says. “But not all practices are cost-effective in every situation.” For example, Faries says disease and parasite challenges common to areas of high precipitation may pose little risk in arid regions. Stocking density influences relative risk too. Cattle dispersed thinly over large areas are less likely to transmit infections to one another, than

right thing at the wrong time. If producers want to get the most out of the money invested in health management, Faries warns, they have to implement practices at the time they will deliver maximum benefit. “Working cattle when it is most convenient for the producer may not be the best time to get the desired results from vaccination, deworming, or other practices,” Faries says. An example might be deciding to deworm cattle while the kids are home for a visit and you’ve got extra help. It won’t be cost-effective if it’s not a time of year when you can break the worm cycle, Faries explains. Risk can vary from year to year too, he adds. In areas affected by prolonged dry weather, deworming may not be costeffective. Without a period of wet weather and opportunity for cattle to graze wet grass carrying worm larvae, conditions weren’t right for transmission. Faries says the “right time” to perform economically beneficial

tasks generally depends on a producer’s calving season. Relative to when calving occurs, management practices can be scheduled for pre-calving, during the calving season, postcalving, pre-breeding, during the breeding season, at weaning time or whenever implementation is most beneficial. Faries also emphasizes the role proper nutrition plays in managing herd health. If nutritional status is not up to snuff, vaccination programs will be less effective and cattle are less likely to mount an adequate immune response to vaccination. Faries says minerals are particularly important to proper immune function. “The presence of calcium and phosphorus, in the right ratio, is really important. Supplementation of those and other minerals is usually needed on most ranches. It depends on the levels present in the feed and water. Only through analysis can a producer know if key elements are lacking and should be supplemented,” Faries explains. When times are tough and even when they are pretty good, Faries advises producers to remember that changes in weather patterns, forage resources and management or marketing practices can influence a health program. He recommends good recordkeeping and working with a trusted veterinarian to regularly evaluate health risks and their potential economic impact. Some health management practices may always be cost-effective, while others may not. “I don’t think a producer can lock in a program and just do the same things year after year. Risks vary and so will the economic benefits of vaccinating against certain diseases or controlling internal and external parasites. Things change and you have to change with them,” Faries says. “You’re wasting your money if you’re doing things that aren’t cost-effective, or doing them at the wrong time. Do the right things, for your individual operation, and do them at the right time.” HW

The State of Veterinarians Is there a crisis? by Jami Gillig

T

he situation looks bleak. You know you need help. It’s time to make the call. But, what if there is no one to call? You don’t have a foodanimal veterinarian. This situation is becoming the reality in more rural areas across the country. Cattle producers have to rely on their own knowledge in emergency situations because a food-animal veterinarian is not available. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the alarming reality is that some rural areas of

22 Hereford World / October 2009

the country are being hit hard. As reported on the AVMA Web site, about 75 counties in the U.S. have more than 25,000 food animals and do not have a veterinarian. The largest concentration of these counties is in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, with smaller pockets in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and the Carolinas. There are 217 counties with 5,000 to 25,000 food animals and no veterinarians. In addition,

AVMA also reports 152 counties with 5,000 or fewer food animals and no veterinarians. “The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), the AVMA and other institutions have recognized for some time that there is a significant shortage of veterinarians nationwide, particularly those practicing food supply veterinary medicine, rural medicine, public health at local and state levels, diagnostic laboratory medicine and biomedical research,” says Marguerite Pappaioanou, DVM, executive director of the AAVMC. Further painting a sobering picture, a Kansas State University (K-State) study projects the shortage of food supply veterinarians to worsen by 4-5% annually for the next several years. In addition, a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranked veterinary medicine ninth on the list of the 30 fastestgrowing occupations for 2006 through 2016. It is estimated that jobs for veterinarians will increase by 35% in the next several years. The writing is on the wall that this is a serious issue, especially when you consider that foodanimal veterinarians play a critical role to ensure that Americans have a safe, healthy and secure food supply and are protected from disease outbreaks and pandemics. The question is how to turn the current situation around when there are so many factors that hinder an increase in the number of food-animal veterinarians.

The economics The numbers can be staggering for any student considering veterinary school. On average, a veterinary college graduate leaves school with $120,000 in debt. A graduate can also expect an average starting salary of $61,000. “We’re trying to grapple with this serious issue,” says Pappaioanou. “Due at least partially to past efforts by the National Commission on Veterinary Economic Issues, the profession has seen the income of veterinarians increase over recent years. Current statistics from AVMA have shown that several years out of school, veterinarians going into food animal medicine exclusively actually exceeds that of veterinarians going into companion-animal practice.” Pappaioanou says the reality is that education costs money and fewer sources of public funding are being invested in higher education, in general. Universities therefore have to supplement decreasing public state support with increases in private donations and tuition. To help alleviate some of the student-debt concerns, several states offer loan repayment programs for veterinarians who

practice in underserved areas. These states include Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont and Wyoming. The federal government has marked $4.8 million since 2003 to go toward a new Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program, anticipated for implementation this year. The increase in tuition and average debt load is making many colleges rethink their curricula. Given that student debt has become an issue for all students, no matter what their field of study, post graduate income has become a critical factor for being able to pay back acquired debt at graduation. Thus, it is essential that veterinary medical students learn sound business practices, no matter what career options they intend to pursue, as a part of their veterinary medical education. “Most veterinary medical students, in their enthusiasm to learn as much medicine as possible, don’t always appreciate the importance of learning sound business practices in order to maximize their post graduation income and aid in their ability to pay back their student loans when they get out of school,” says Pappaioanou. “Colleges are now offering innovative courses in entrepreneurship and business practices.”

Stagnant class sizes The 28 veterinary medical colleges in the U.S. combined currently graduate from 2,500 to 2,600 students each year. This number has remained relatively stagnant the last few decades. This lack of growth in veterinary medical graduates is not due to a lack of applicants. According to the AAVMC, these 28 veterinary medical schools in the U.S. have facilities that are at full capacity, with qualified applicants outnumbering available seats three to one. “For the past 30 years we have not seen a significant increase in veterinary school class sizes,” says Pappaioanou. “This is due to shortage of state or federal investment in new facilities that would allow increased enrollments in class size.” Pappaioanou, along with Ron DeHaven, DVM, chief executive officer for the AVMA, testified before a senate subcommittee regarding the shortage of foodanimal veterinarians and the need for funding. “We are beyond the point of needing minor renovations to our schools of veterinary medicine,” testified DeHaven. “Minor renovations would not allow our veterinary schools to increase class size to a level that is needed to meet the demand for www.hereford.org

Veterinarians with urban backgrounds Long gone are the days when virtually every veterinarian was a food supply veterinarian. Today, only about 10% of veterinarians work to ensure a safe, affordable and abundant food supply. “The biggest driver is a demographic change as more of our veterinarians and veterinary students come from an urban background,” says Gatz Riddell, DVM, American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) executive vice president. “We have fewer new graduates wanting to locate in rural areas where there may be more of a challenge to build income from a purely food animal practice.” In addition, a growing disconnect from rural living and life on the farm is contributing to fewer students pursuing a career in food supply veterinary medicine. “As our nation becomes more urban in nature, people are moving out of rural America and seeking to make a living in more populated areas, which is contributing to the shortage of food supply and federal veterinarians,” testifies DeHaven. “As farming operations become more consolidated, the links in the family farming chain — and the important exposure to the veterinarians who help these families care for their animals — are weakening, leading to fewer food supply veterinarians.” It is true that a rural food-animal practice may not offer all of the perks of big city life. Hours can be longer, working conditions may be tougher and, as the number of veterinarians becomes fewer, travel may be required. “For emergency care it is not unusual for rural veterinarians to travel 45 to 60 miles,” says Riddell. “Veterinarians will go farther for preventative care, especially if a full day’s work is required. Veterinarians that offer specialized services may travel an airline ticket away from their practice.”

Recruiting rural veterinarians Recruiting rural food-animal veterinarians is a focal point for the AVMA and AAVMC, as well as several veterinary colleges. “Through partnerships and professional relationships with several organizations such as the FFA, the National Association of Agricultural Educators and the National Science Teachers Association, the AVMA is www.hereford.org

more veterinarians, both in the private and public sectors. We need major renovations, and we ask that Congress assist us in meeting this critical infrastructure need.” DeHaven also noted that the space needed to educate veterinary students is unique. “This is not generic university space. It is unique teaching, diagnostic, laboratory and research space that must include special safety, restraint and animal-handling features that are not commonly found on American campuses,” testified DeHaven. This need puts an even bigger price tag on improvements.

reaching out to students to help attract bright, young minds to the veterinary profession,” testifies DeHaven. “We have created career videos and use social media to distribute information on veterinary careers and the rewards of working with food animals and on behalf of public health.” In addition, a number of vet colleges are offering early admissions to students with an animal science background. “They are targeting those individuals with rural backgrounds and mentoring them to prepare them for veterinary school,” says Riddell. Additional support is given to the students during their first year of undergrad studies while they become more acquainted with college life and develop positive study habits. Once in veterinary school, students have the opportunity to learn more about different sectors of veterinary medicine. “AABP is particularly pleased to be able to provide funding and support for externships available to student members,” says Riddell. “These externships target students with interest in food-animal practice, although they may not have had much exposure to bovine practice or the cattle industry. During those two weeks, the students get to go and see what a bovine practice is like.”

Producers should take the opportunity to attend educational programs, whether a veterinarian or industry partner hosts them. Producers can get additional animal care training through online educational videos that were scheduled to be launched by K-State in mid-September. The new service includes more than 100 training modules targeting the care of beef, dairy and equine. “Producers have the opportunity to purchase individual modules focusing on the health and well-being of cattle,” says Daniel Thomson, K-State veterinarian. “Some of the modules include castration, dehorning, calving difficulties, humane euthanasia and

doctoring and treating sick calves. They purchase the module online and pay by credit card. A quiz is given with an e-mail certificate sent upon completion.” The modules are offered in both English and Spanish. Producers can keep a virtual library of the modules and view them as often as they wish. “We’ve tried to produce a quality product that is relevant and easy for producers to utilize,” says Thomson. “We want them to have a good return on their investment and ultimately increase the safety and well-being of their employees and cattle.” HW

The future There is no doubt that food-animal veterinarians are a necessity. “They are not only promoting the health and well-being of our livestock herds and poultry flocks, veterinarians are also first responders on the front lines of disease prevention and response,” says DeHaven. “Their involvement in food safety plays a vital role in public health and national security.” In some areas of the country the future of the large-animal veterinarian is bleak. Producers may need to find ways to educate themselves.

Producer programs “In the past 15 years we’ve seen a shift where our food-animal veterinarians are expanding their role as on-farm educators,” says Riddell. “We’ve seen success targeting both large and small operations with instructional programs that focus on preventative medicine and animal care.”

Doctors’ Orders

Veterinarians give herd health advice, stress importance of building a relationship with a vet. by Sara Gugelmeyer

V

eterinarians are getting scarce, especially those willing to come out to your place and look at cattle. But, three veterinarians involved in the Hereford industry say the key to healthy, profitable cattle is having a good veterinarian and developing a relationship with him or her. L.W. Beckley owns Beckley Herefords and works mainly as a large animal veterinarian, specializing in beef cattle reproductive services. He works with a lot of seedstock operators focused on producing top quality, disease-free breeding stock for a premium. But, he also does general vet work for cow-calf producers, stockers and others.

Beckley says the four main components of a good animal health program are vaccinations, nutrition, deworming and disease screening.

Prevention is key “First you’ve got to have a good vaccination protocol,” Beckley says. “Ask your vet about your area, because there will be differences in some vaccines and some are more important than others, depending on where you’re at.” He adds, “Prevention is key to a successful operation. Cattle just do so much better if they never get sick.” Mike McDonald, who is a Hereford breeder and veterinarian in West Virginia,

“Prevention is key to a successful operation. Cattle just do so much better if they never get sick.” — L.W. Beckley

“The cost of vaccines is only about $5 to $10 per animal whereas the cost per treatment of some newer drugs runs about $20.” — Mike McDonald echoes Beckley’s thoughts on the importance of vaccination. “I think, without question, getting calves vaccinated at a young age greatly decreases the incidence of sickness and respiratory problems later when they are moved or shipped.” McDonald adds that this is an area some purebred breeders may overlook because they are not necessarily backgrounding cattle or preparing them for the feedlot, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t at risk. “Like at the state fair or when we take cattle to a show and they are exposed to other cattle and shipping and washing, they are put under stress where they should be vaccinated at a young age to protect them.”

McDonald also points out that the cost of vaccinations is cheap compared to the cost of treatment. “The cost of vaccines is only about $5 to $10 per animal whereas the cost per treatment of some newer drugs runs about $20,” he says. Commercial cattleman and veterinarian Tom Hill, Baker City, Ore., also stresses the importance of vaccinations. In his operation, he admits vaccinating more than most because his calves are sold as Country Natural Beef, and so treating one for sickness makes it ineligible for the program. Hill says, “We stay on top of our vaccinations, particularly our viral vaccines for respiratory disease so they don’t get sick in the feedlot. We also give

The good doctors These veterinarians practice what they preach. All involved in the Hereford industry in one way or another, their knowledge of animal health comes from book learning and hands-on experience. And as a credit to the breed, after looking at beef cattle most of the day, they choose Herefords to come home to. L.W. Beckley, Irvine, Ky., graduated from Auburn University vet school in 2000. After working at two other vet clinics, he was glad to return to his hometown and start his own practice. He mostly works out of his pickup, traveling to area farms. “I enjoy working for myself and working outside,” he says. In addition to his busy vet schedule, he raises Herefords along with his father. They each have about 50 cows of which most are registered. They enjoy a good commercial bull market as well as selling a few top end bulls to other registered breeders. They also market L.W. Beckley (above) and Mike McDonald (right) escape the stress of veterinary work through consignment sales. to show their home-raised Herefords. Beckley shows some home-raised cattle. “We go to the Kentucky State Fair, the North American, Keystone and, occasionally, Denver,” he says. In 2006 he won the cow-calf division at the North American International Livestock Exposition with Beckley Kaeyla 799P and her calf Beckley Ontime 934S. “That really meant a lot to us because we raised the cow and the calf,” Beckley says. “The big thing I want to do is produce functional cows that will go into the showring and compete and we can have fun with, but go back and make it on grass,” Beckley says. And he adds Herefords work well for that because their good disposition makes them easy to show, plus they’re an easy fleshing, low maintenance type of cattle when they’re ready to return to the herd. Mike McDonald, Jane Lew, W.Va., attended veterinary school at The Ohio State University and graduated in 1984. He works as a mixed animal veterinarian in what he calls “semirural” West Virginia. Much of his time is spent working with beef cattle, though.

24 Hereford World / October 2009

He has a Hereford herd of about 60 purebreds and 35 commercial cows. He keeps the purebred heifers but steers all the bull calves for feeders. He markets the top end of his feeder steers at the Greater Midwest Certified Hereford Calf Sale in Carthage, Ill. He has participated in the sale since it was started and says he has enjoyed a premium for his Herefords every year, compared to what they would have brought at a local sale barn. McDonald also buys about 100-200 crossbred feeder calves in similar weight groups to add to his remaining home-raised calves. He turns them out on grass and grows them to about 750 lb., and then either sells them or feeds them out at a feedlot in Nebraska. “I don’t have a big enough farm to make whole potloads of my own, so I will buy enough other feeders to make a whole group to background and sell or feed,” he explains. Before he started consigning to the Hereford feeder calf sale, he marketed his own calves through the Certified Hereford Beef (CHB) program. Now, he doesn’t keep enough Herefords to make it work. “I buy all colors to put with mine to make a load, but I would like to buy more quality Herefords that would fit the CHB program.” He says he prefers showing Herefords because of their temperament, but other qualities make them the best choice to feed. “I think they are more diseaseresistant, because I have less problems with sickness outbreaks on the Herefords I feed,” McDonald says, adding, “They also feed efficiently.” Tom Hill, Baker City, Ore., has been a veterinarian for 34 years. He graduated from Colorado State University’s vet school and then returned to his home state of Oregon to practice. He and his wife, Lynn, along with the help of their two grown children and their spouses, run commercial cows. “Lynn’s the manger,” Tom says. “She’s in charge.” www.hereford.org


everything an 8-way because of our area and vaccinate for pinkeye and foot rot. Most of that is just because it costs us a lot of money if we treat one and they are out of the program.” Nutrition is also critical to a successful health program. In fact, Hill says nutrition is arguably the most important part. “Whether we are talking about supplementing energy or protein or whatever, nutrition is the main thing we deal with especially through the winter.” Beckley agrees, saying nutrition is often overlooked in regard to animal health. “Even if they’ve got the best vaccination program in the world, if they don’t feed a good trace mineral, the immune system can’t function properly without everything in balance nutritionally.” Parasite control is another necessary component to a healthy herd. McDonald says controlling worms in the cow herd and for stocker and feedlot cattle is essential to efficient reproduction and growth. And, parasite control varies greatly depending on the environment in which the cattle are kept, so it’s important to get your vet’s input on what to use and when to deworm. Lastly, utilizing screening tests can be beneficial to cattlemen, especially for seedstock operators, says Beckley. “Producers should consider screeningtype tests for anything that could be a great economical problem. Especially in the seedstock business, people want to buy cattle that they know aren’t introducing anything into their herd.

“Having a relationship with a vet so they have an opportunity to get to know your operation is important.” — Tom Hill Yearly screening to make sure your herd is clean may be a good idea.”

Don’t cut health All three vets agree that your animal health program is not the place to cut back no matter how tight budgets get. Beckley says, “It’s a lot harder to make money on an animal that has gotten sick or has problems or one that you’ve culled due to sickness. You can’t make a profit on a dead one. My cow herd has to pay for itself, and you can look at some places to cut corners, but animal health isn’t one of them.” The bottom line is to establish a good working relationship, and even friendship, with your veterinarian to the benefit of both parties. Hill says, “I think just having a relationship with a vet so they have an opportunity to get to know your operation is important. Everything varies a lot with how people are running cattle and what they are doing with them. It sure helps to get an ongoing relationship with a vet so they are a lot better able to advise you on things that help your program.”

It’s important to remember, too, that veterinarians are trying to make a living as well, and it’s not always easy. No better proof of this difficulty is the shortage of large animal and rural veterinarians. So, if you expect your veterinarian to jump out of bed in the middle of the night and rush to your aid, you might not want to pinch pennies and buy your vaccines and other animal health products from the feed store. Including your vet in yearly and seasonal health care decisions is to your advantage too, Beckley says. “You need to keep a relationship with your vet, and if they’re involved in some of your routine stuff, they can better advise you on problems that you are having. And they know what you deal with on a regular basis. Large animal vets are getting harder to find, so if you want to keep them around, then you need to help support their business.” HW

Tom and his wife, Lynn, prefer to cross Hereford and Angus to produce calves that will look good on the rail and as replacements.

They calve about 225 cows every year, of which nearly all are black baldies. “We try to keep a whiteface and black hide on all our replacements,” Hill says. To do that, he uses Hereford bulls from Harrell Hereford Ranch along with Angus bulls. They market their calves as beef through the Country Natural Beef (CNB) program. “We wean the calves here and keep them on grass for a month and a half or so, and in about November we will send them to a backgrounding lot, and then they will go to a feedlot from there,” Hill says. Ownership is retained through the production chain to the rail. Hill says they buy Harrell Hereford bulls because Bob Harrell and his family know how the CNB program works and they are selecting genetics that work specifically for the program. In order to be eligible, the calves can’t be given antibiotics or ionophores and must meet carcass requirements. “We want a big ribeye, moderate backfat and around a 700 lb. carcass,” Hill says. The Hills prefer a black baldie cow because she will winter reasonably and run efficiently year-round. Plus, Hill says, “I have a full-time day job, so we need cattle that can take care of themselves, and they are, because we don’t spend much time with them and they still work good for us.” HW www.hereford.org

OPPORTUNITIES FOR OWNERS OF REGISTERED BRAHMANS, HEREFORDS AND HALFBLOOD CROSSES OF THE TWO If you have the valuable breeding pieces of top registered Brahmans and Herefords, consider extending the advantages of those top genetics into the production of registered Brafords. While even mediocre cattle of these breeds can be crossed to produce highly productive F-1 Braford commercial cows, it takes a little more to produce top registered Brafords. Purebred Braford breeding requires superior Brahmans and Herefords because their characteristics are to be bred in and transmitted generation to generation. The basis for F-1 productivity is often heterosis; heterosis that is greatly diminished in subsequent generations of breeding.

O

wners of quality registered Brahman and Hereford cattle have the basic pieces needed to progress into the registered Braford business.

Braford breeders consider the ⅜ Brahman—⅝ Hereford combination to be purebred. Starting with registered Brahman and Hereford cattle, there are several routes a breeder may take to get to purebred Brafords. Because many breeders are involved in breeding up to purebred Brafords, various intermediate crosses are in demand as well as new generation purebred ⅜—⅝ Brafords. For most owners of Brahman or Hereford cowherds, producing registered ½ Brahman—½ Hereford cattle is a first step. Some of the top halfblood bulls can be marketed but the greatest demand is for the quality females. The females are sought after by both producers breeding up to Brafords and top commercial producers. There are several options for utilizing registered ½ Brahman— ½ Hereford cattle. Halfbloods can be mated to registered ¼ Brahman—¾ Herefords to produce ⅜—⅝ purebreds.

Currently, top quality ¼ Brahman—¾ Hereford bulls are scarce and there is a demand for these bulls among owners of registered halfblood cows. Breeding quality Hereford bulls to halfblood cows will produce those desired ¼ Brahman—¾ Hereford bulls that can be used on halfblood cows. Similarly, females that are ¼ Brahman can also be bred to halfblood bulls to produce ⅜—⅝ purebreds. Brahman bulls can be mated to halfblood cows to produce ¾ Brahman— ¼ Hereford offspring. These ¾ Brahman cattle can be bred to top registered Herefords to produce ⅜—⅝ purebreds. ¾ Brahman bulls are being used on herds of Hereford cows, either polled or horned, to produce new generation purebreds. Southern producers greatly appreciate high quality registered ¾ Brahman females

because of their maternal productivity, adaptability and longevity but also because they can be bred to the best proven Hereford bulls in the world to produce outstanding new Braford purebreds. Most Braford breeders today continue to breed purebred Brafords to purebred Brafords. However, the need to inject new Brahman and Hereford genetics into the Braford breed will always exist. These new genetics provide opportunities for genetic improvement and help breeders minimize inbreeding by keeping the genetic base of the breed wide. If you have quality registered Brahmans or Herefords or documented crosses of the two, consider breeding up to registered Brafords. Along the way. United Braford Breeders (UBB) will register your percentage cattle and provide guidance in your advancement. You will have true registration papers on your cattle with full pedigrees and other details. You can document and report the performance information on your cattle and will even be provided with EPDs that will benefit you and your customers in selecting to produce superior registered Brafords.

Exposing Nine Vaccine Myths W

ith so many cattle vaccines available — nearly 125 different vaccines are currently on the market — there is a considerable amount of information, and misinformation, out there. To help clear up some misconceptions, Vic Cortese, DVM, Pfizer Animal Health, busts nine common vaccine myths.

1

Myth No. If the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) licenses a vaccine, it will work all the time in all cattle. False. The fact that a vaccine is licensed and available doesn’t mean it always works. There are many reasons why a vaccine might not work, including:

• It was used on the wrong age of animal.

• The wrong disease outcome was measured.

• It was used on the wrong species.

• The disease was overwhelming.

• Animals were already sick.

2

Myth No. “Annual vaccination” means a year of immunity. False. We don’t really know

the duration of immunity. The USDA may not require duration of immunity studies. If a product successfully demonstrates efficacy at 14 to 35 days after the last vaccination, it is automatically given an annual revaccination

36 Hereford World / October 2009

label. This does not necessarily mean the animal will be protected for 12 months.

3

Myth No. The higher the antibody titer (level) after vaccination, the better the protection. False. Titers may be a poor indicator of level of protection. There are many different antibodies involved in protection and non-protective antibodies can also be measured.

4

Myth No. Vaccines are not effective in young calves because of blocking by maternal antibodies. False. The role of maternal antibody interference is not clearly defined. Depending upon the disease, the type of vaccine, the pre-existing antibody levels and the route of administration, some vaccines may be blocked by maternal antibodies, but others are not. Generally, maternal antibodies do not inhibit viral vaccines. Two exceptions are bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) and parvovirus. And, as a general rule, maternal antibodies may block bacterins. A noteworthy exception is Lepto hardjo-bovis. Many vaccines for calves are not inhibited by maternal antibodies, so ask your vaccine supplier to see efficacy studies done in calves with maternal antibodies if possible blocking is a concern.

Myth No.

5

Rotation of vaccines gives more complete protection.

False. The descriptions surrounding vaccine rotation, such as “optimal antigenic diversity,” “rotation means the broadest protection,” “avoid vaccine inbreeding” and “antigenic diversity is the key,” make it sound necessary. The fact is there are no challenge studies to support the idea of vaccine rotation. It also disregards differences in vaccines and is solely focused on BVD vaccines. There is an impracticality of vaccine rotation because many animals are in different stages of vaccination at any given time.

6

Myth No. Inactivated vaccines are safer than modified-live vaccines. False. The truth is that

killed vaccines may cause more adverse reactions in animals because they contain more antigen mass, consist of more biologic components and rely on adjuvants.

7

Myth No BVDV congenital infection protection is more important than persistent infection protection. False. Persistently infected (PI) animals are what we must prevent to control BVD. The true definition of congenital infection is exposure of the fetus in a nonimmune pregnant cow during any stage of pregnancy. But it is often used to define exposure during the third trimester. This causes

calves to be born with self-made BVD antibodies. The impact of later-term exposure on the health of newborn calves is not clear.

8

Myth No. The timing of scours vaccines in the cow is not important. False. The timing of the dam’s scours vaccination is critical to get maximum protection for the calf and is crucial to good colostrum management. The best time to vaccinate for scours is three to four weeks prior to calving. This timing will help ensure the maximum number of colostral antibodies is transferred to the calf through the colostrum, because peak immunity levels occur at this time.

9

Myth No. Intranasal vaccines provide superior protection in cattle. False. Intranasals may provide similar protective capabilities as systemic vaccination. Intranasal vaccination may be used for calves:

• Whose immune systems have already been compromised.

• That are heavily stressed. • That are in the face of disease outbreaks.

As a result, safety of their use is critical because it usually comes at a time when disease outbreaks are anticipated in young animals that are already heavily stressed. HW Editor’s Note: This article was provided by Pfizer Animal Health.

Proper Dosing Helps Keep Costs in Line “C attle producers pay a price for using a standard dose of anti-infective on a lot of cattle, in more ways than one,” says Mike Nichols, DVM, Pfizer Animal Health Veterinary Operations, Vega, Texas. While overdosing results in unnecessary treatment costs and increased withdrawal time, underdosing can result in increased treatment failures (leading to more chronics and mortalities), added labor and treatment costs, reduced performance, and increased withdrawal times as well. All of those consequences affect cattle producers’ bottom lines. Nichols says improper dosing happens for typically two reasons. Producers may administer a standard dose for all animals that appear to be in a certain weight range, such as one standard dose for all 300-lb. to 500-lb. calves. Or, producers may give a standard dose to an entire group of animals based on their average weight.

“I allow for a 10% variance either over or under the exact dose to still be considered a proper dose,” he says. “But if you consider the weight variation in a typical group of calves, it wouldn’t be surprising if you’re improperly dosing up to 50% of the animals.” A Kansas State University (K-State) analysis was conducted to evaluate the extent and degree of improper dosing that would occur if all animals in a study group were treated with one standard dose based on the average weight of the group. The researchers found that 946 out of 6,231 head would be overdosed by 10% or more, while 831 head would be underdosed by 10% or more. The analysis also showed that nearly 2% of the animals would be overdosed by 25% or more. “Unlike vaccines, which are dosed at one standard rate to stimulate the immune system, anti-infectives must be dosed on

weight to ensure the proper level of drug reaches the infected tissues in an animal’s body for effective treatment,” Nichols adds.

Tips to ensure proper dosing Nichols recommends installing a weight scale under the processing chute as a foolproof way to ensure proper dosing. “It is an investment, but one that can help yield improved treatment response and lower total medicine costs, as well as being a valuable tool to assess treatment response,” Nichols explains. “Weighing and dosing animals individually also results in correct withdrawal times, which supports Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) guidelines.” Educating the people who are administering the products is critical. Crews should be trained in using the proper size syringe to accurately measure the dose, following the proper care of administration equipment and handling of the chute scale if you have one.

“The newer, low-volume dose anti-infectives on the market offer many benefits including supporting BQA, but they still require attention to detail for administering the correct dose,” Nichols adds. “Crew training is even more important with these products. Producers should also consider that several manufacturers have produced syringes specifically to handle these lower doses.” HW Editor’s Note: This article was provided by Pfizer Animal Health.

Vaccination with Parasite Control Is a Must for a Healthy Herd LSU Extension veterinarian says parasite control and nutrition should be priorities.

E

ven if producers do everything else by the book for vaccination, if they don’t control parasites and monitor nutrition, they may be throwing that investment away. “I get a lot of herd health calls from producers asking what to vaccinate for,” says Christine Navarre, Louisiana State University (LSU) Extension veterinarian. “I won’t even talk about vaccination until we’ve addressed parasite control and nutrition. Without managing those two issues, they may not get all they can out of a vaccination program.” Navarre is not alone in her concern. Parasites are listed by the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine as one of the common causes of vaccine failure. “Studies have shown that parasite loads can reduce an animal’s ability to produce a strong humoral and cell-mediated immune response to antigens, such as vaccines,” says Frank Hurtig, Merial Veterinary Services director. “A healthy immune response is necessary for vaccines to be effective. Parasites can hinder that process.” Some of this reduced immune function may be attributed to parasites causing increased stress and malnutrition. “Cattle need to be in good condition to get the best possible response to vaccination,” Navarre says. “Parasites disrupt stomach function, making it more difficult for cattle to absorb nutrients, which acts like poor nutrition.

38 Hereford World / October 2009

That means cattle may not have the nutrients available to mount an immune response to vaccination.” Fall vaccination and preconditioning programs are designed to help calves prepare for the challenges of weaning and shipping. Hurtig says it is essential that producers also control parasites with a product they can trust, such as an Ivomec® (ivermectin) brand product, as part of their fall protocols to help calves mount a proper immune response to vaccines. “Producers should follow a preconditioning program like the veterinarian-certified Merial® Surehealth® Calf Preconditioning Program that includes controlling parasites with an Ivomec brand product,” Hurtig says. “Parasite control and vaccines both help give calves a strong start in a feeder or heifer development program. And since Ivomec brand products are backed by a 100% product satisfaction guarantee from Merial, producers’ parasite control investment is protected as well.” Just as feeder calves need to be treated for parasites, Hurtig says producers also need to include parasite control as part of fall cow and replacement heifer health protocols. “Fall cow vaccinations serve double duty, protecting the cow and providing immunity to the calf at birth via colostrum,” Hurtig says. “These vaccines can head off a lot of trouble and expense for producers but should be used in conjunction with parasite control to help clear the

path for maximum effectiveness.” He says a fall parasite control treatment not only will help ensure that the vaccination program is as successful as possible but will help reduce pasture parasite loads and clear cattle of parasites before winter.

“The timing of parasite control is so important that I try to time vaccinations to when parasite control is necessary, not the other way around.” — Christine Navarre To achieve these benefits, Navarre says timing is key. She encourages producers to rethink what herd health practice determines when they work cattle. “The timing of parasite control is so important that I try to time vaccinations to when parasite control is necessary, not the other way around,” Navarre says. “I want to know that timing for parasite control is right because it is more critical than timing for vaccination in many herds.” When producers are choosing a parasite control product this fall, Hurtig notes that they should consult with a veterinarian for the optimal parasite control practices in their areas, read labels carefully and choose a product that will control all of the parasites of concern for their individual herds.

It’s equally critical, he adds, for producers to protect their parasite control investment by using a product that is backed by a trusted manufacturer.

Boost cattle profitability Herd health costs account for a relatively small percentage of a cow-calf producer’s expenditures, but they can have a big effect on boosting productivity and securing profits. This is an important insight that most profitable cow-calf producers already know, according to Cattle-Fax’s annual cow-calf producer survey. “Year in and year out, in good markets and in bad, our cow-calf producer survey shows that highreturn producers do not skimp on genetics, pasture or herd health,” says Kevin Good, Cattle-Fax senior market analyst.

Five tips To achieve the most out of their parasite control programs, producers need to choose a product they can trust, and then apply it correctly, Hurtig says. He offers the following tips for producers wanting to get the most out of their parasite control investment: 1) Make sure the product is effective against target parasites in the area and will meet the producer’s parasite control goals. • Carefully read product labels to determine parasites controlled and the duration of the product against target parasites. • Not all parasite control products are effective www.hereford.org


against liver flukes or provide control of inhibited stages of the brown stomach worm. 2) Weigh cattle to determine accurate dosing and achieve more efficient treatment. • Using too much or too little product can result in wasted parasite control investment or less-than-ideal control. 3) Time parasite control for when it’s most effective, not when it’s most convenient. • Working with a local veterinarian can help producers determine the best time to control parasites in their areas. 4) Use parasite control products based on the region and life cycle of the target parasites. • Due to the persistent effect of endectocides, treatments can be applied in northern climates between two to three weeks before or after the first hard frost for the best fall and winter control. • Where liver flukes are a concern, treatment should occur in early fall before cattle are turned out for winter grazing.

Hurtig says it’s also important to treat for internal parasites, such as liver flukes and Ostertagia this time of year. Research has shown that through improved growth and production, heifers treated for both nematodes and liver flukes in the fall earned $153 more per head. In addition, in 8- to 9-month-old calves, research has found that subclinical infections of liver flukes caused an 8% reduction in weight gain over six months. Higher levels of infection reduced weight gain by 29%. “Controlling both internal and external parasites at fall preconditioning or weaning sets up calves for more efficient weight gain and better overall health as they transition to the feeder or heifer

development stage,” Hurtig says. “Left unchecked, parasite infections will cause reduced weight gains, inefficient feed conversion and increased incidence of disease — all of which will quickly chip away at profits.” Controlling internal and external parasites also can give cows a muchneeded boost as forage quality declines and they are struggling nutritionally. “This falloff in forage quality makes it important that cattle get the most benefit possible out of the feed that is available. Parasite loads make that even more challenging,” Hurtig says. “Parasites decrease appetite, have a negative effect on nutrient utilization and hamper immune response. Clearing cows of parasites before winter means that expensive

supplemental feed is going to benefit your herd, not feed parasites.” Hurtig advises all producers to consider what Cattle-Fax says highreturn producers already know and practice: sound herd health, which includes parasite control, pays big dividends — even in hard times. “Even though it may be tempting, sound parasite control should be the last place producers cut,” he says. “Instead, they need to work with their veterinarian to develop a plan for this fall and again next spring to help cattle fight the damaging effects of parasites throughout the year.” HW Editor’s Note: This article was provided by Merial.

5) Use a branded product that is backed by a product satisfaction guarantee. Of all those practices, Iowa State University data show that parasite control easily tops the list of most economically rewarding cow-calf pharmaceutical practices. Parasite control comes in at almost six times more important to a cow-calf producer’s breakeven cost than using growth-promoting implants, which was the second-most important practice. The same research shows that not controlling parasites in the cow herd can negatively affect a producer’s breakeven selling price by 34% — equating to a value of $201 per head. “Parasites negatively affect cattle performance and, therefore, profits, from a number of different angles,” says Hurtig. “Parasites can cause reduced weight gain, conception rates, immune system response and milk production — negatives that can all build on each other and result in significant losses.” He adds that parasites build up on pastures and in cattle throughout the summer grazing months, making fall cattle work — such as preconditioning, weaning or pregnancy checking — ideally timed opportunities to clear both cows and calves of profit-robbing parasites in preparation for winter, Hurtig says. Lice are usually the top-of-mind pest leading up to the winter months. Hurtig says this focus on lice occurs, in part, because the damage from them is easily seen, but it is important to remember that lice can cause more than a little hair loss. Studies have shown that feeder calves infected with moderate to heavy lice populations can have a decreased average daily gain of as much as 0.21 lb. www.hereford.org

“Damp conditions predispose the feet of cattle to damage and infection, making it important to watch for foot rot during wet times of the year or in areas where there is a buildup of mud and/or manure,” explains Gordon Brumbaugh, DVM and antiinfectives specialist with Pfizer Animal Health. “It is difficult to totally eliminate rocks, gravel, forage or ice from pastures or corrals, but it is important to recognize that these, or other sharp surfaces, can cut the skin between the toes of the foot and allow bacteria to invade and cause an infection. Vigilance to remove those can help control foot rot.” Technically, foot rot is not contagious, but chances are good that if one animal develops foot rot, the conditions are right for more animals in the herd to become infected. Also, discharge from the wounds of infected animals may seed the ground with infection-causing bacteria.

Preventing and managing foot rot

Manage Foot Rot to Protect Cattle Herd Performance P

roducers who recognize foot rot and develop strategies to prevent and treat it can successfully protect their cattle herd’s performance. Causing an estimated 75% of all lameness diagnosed in beef cattle, foot rot, or interdigital dermatitis, can be detrimental to the health of a herd and profits of an operation. Lameness and swelling related to foot rot threaten performance by causing reduced feed consumption, ultimately resulting in reduced weight gain. In addition, cows affected by foot rot may not get the nutrition they need to produce sufficient milk for nursing calves, and affected

40 Hereford World / October 2009

bulls are less likely to breed cows during breeding season.

Conditions for foot rot Foot rot is a bacterial infection in the skin and subcutaneous tissue between the toes of the foot that can extend into tendons, ligaments, joints and foot bones. The bacteria that cause foot rot — including Fusobacterium necrophorum and Porphyromonas levii — are common in the environment but need the right conditions to grow and cause disease. A break in the skin or a laceration is required for the entry of the bacteria that can cause infection.

Effective strategies for prevention and treatment are important in managing foot rot because of the potential for lameness — the primary and most obvious sign of foot rot. Swelling and lameness can come on suddenly, becoming so painful that cattle lie down and refuse to stand or eat. According to one study, steers with lameness related to foot rot gained 0.45 lb. less per day compared to noninfected animals. After a proper diagnosis is made with the help of your veterinarian, Brumbaugh recommended starting treatment. Although some very mild cases may respond to cleaning and topical therapy, most cases require the use of systemic antiinfective therapy. “Extended therapy products can help reduce or limit diseasecausing bacteria for a longer period of time and allow the animal’s immune system more time to overcome the effects of the bacteria,” Brumbaugh adds. “And to help limit recovery time, affected animals should be kept in dry areas, if possible, until healed.” Managing this condition starts even before cattle are infected. “By taking the precautions to limit bacterial growth in the surrounding environment, you

can save time and money and keep your herd as healthy as possible,” Brumbaugh says. Research shows up to 15% of a herd could become affected by foot rot in the right conditions; therefore, recognizing situations that are conducive to infection is the first step in prevention. Although not fatal, if the infection spreads to an animal’s joints and causes severe lameness, the disease can result in an animal needing more extensive treatment or culling. Foot rot management includes not only treating affected cattle with trusted anti-infectives but also taking steps toward prevention. According to the Beef Cattle Handbook from the University of Wisconsin, follow these recommendations to help prevent foot rot:

• Keep cattle yards clean and

free of sharp objects like stones, glass or rough ground.

• Cover frozen ground with straw.

• Thoroughly clean pens and spread lime after cattle are removed.

• Ensure cattle yards have adequate drainage.

• Create a dry area for cattle

to stand with mounds of soil, bedding or concrete slabs.

• Use concrete in areas where

cattle congregate, like around water tanks and feed bunks.

• Spread lime with 5% to

10% added copper sulfate around watering units and feed bunks.

• Consider the use of walkthrough footbaths.

• Provide good nutrition,

including phosphorus (P), vitamins A and D, and zinc (Zn).

“Because the organisms that cause foot rot are found everywhere, the best way to prevent the disease is to promote hoof health,” Brumbaugh encourages. “Then watch for signs of the disease, recognize the condition early and treat according to your veterinarian’s recommendations.” HW Editor’s Note: This article was provided by Pfizer Animal Health.

54 Hereford World / October 2009

Six Vie for AHA Board The American Hereford Association (AHA) nominating committee has announced six Hereford breeders contending for positions on the AHA Board. Cliff Copeland Cliff Copeland, Nara Visa, N.M., has been involved in the Hereford business since birth. A family operation established in 1943, Copeland and Sons LLC is currently managed by three generations of Copelands — Cliff and his wife, Pat; Cliff’s parents, Clifford and Barbara; and Cliff and Pat’s son, Matt. Cattle are their only business with a 500-head herd that includes 90 registered Hereford females, 80 cows used to produce club calves and 330 commercial Hereford cows. The registered division produces all of the bulls for the family’s commercial herd. This arrangement allows the Copelands to test their registered genetics under real-world commercial conditions. They try to get feedlot and carcass information on the steer calves. The family strives to provide bulls to its commercial and purebred customers that have complete performance testing and Total Performance Records (TPR) data.

The Copelands show at regional and national shows and have started to make Denver a must each year. They have found that exhibiting cattle gives them contact with and exposure to potential customers from all over the country. Cliff has judged Hereford shows at the local, regional, national and international levels. During his youth, Cliff was a member of the American Junior Hereford Association board and served as president. He attended New Mexico State University and earned an animal science degree. Cliff is a member, director and past president of New Mexico Hereford Association. Cliff and Pat were New Mexico Junior Hereford Association advisors for 17 years. Committed to helping the breed, Cliff has helped with Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) promotions in his area. He has been a member, board member and past committee chair of New Mexico Cattle Growers Association. He currently serves as New Mexico Beef Council vice chairman. He’s a past director and chairman of the New Mexico Beef Cattle Performance Association.

Marty Lueck Missouri Hereford breeder Marty Lueck manages Journagan Ranch, Mountain Grove, Mo. Established in the mid 1960s by Leo and Jean Journagan, the ranch includes 4,200 acres in southcentral Missouri with 370 registered Hereford and 160 commercial cows. With the goal of raising quality cattle that work well for them and bring growth and profit into their customers’ herds, Marty and the Journagans host an annual production sale the first Saturday of October that usually consists of 80-plus lots. They also market approximately 50-60 yearling bulls off the farm annually through private treaty sales and participate in the Show-Me Select sale held annually in Mountain Grove, Mo. For 10 years Marty has sent a group of bulls to the Green Spring Bull Test and for five years residual feed intake (RFI) data has been collected and evaluated. Journagan-bred genetics have also been tested for feed efficiency at the University of Missouri. He assisted in the development of an annual Hereford-influenced feeder calf sale at the Joplin Regional Stockyards, Carthage, Mo. Marty is currently Missouri Hereford Association president. He was an American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) board member from 19871991. While on the APHA board, he served on the education and research, executive, strategic planning, and vision 2000 committees. He was a member of the AHA-APHA merger committee and AHA total herd reporting committee and has served twice on the AHA nominating committee. Marty is a member of the First Baptist Church in Mountain Grove, Douglas County Extension Council, E-76-EE Volunteer Fire Department board, and Missouri Cattlemen’s Association Seed Stock Council. He is past president of the South Central Show-Me Select Program and is currently serving on the Missouri Show-Me Select Program board. Marty and his wife, Vicki, have two sons and a grandson.

Les Midla Pennsylvania Hereford breeder Les Midla’s family has been in the Hereford business since the 1950s. Through the years, the Flat Stone Lick herd located in Marianna, has transitioned from horned to now predominately polled genetics with 80 registered females. Les utilizes artificial insemination (AI) to produce easy keeping Herefords with modestly positive, but balanced, expected progeny differences (EPDs). Each year about 75% of the herd has an AI-sired calf in a closed season. Today Les and his son, Brendan, manage the farm. The father-son team strives to market problem-free young pairs and a few bulls to both commercial and registered herds with the goal of improving the quality and marketability of those herds. The Midlas participate in sales in Pennsylvania and Kentucky and occasionally in surrounding states. Les has been a Pennsylvania Hereford Association board member for 34 years, serving several terms as president and currently serving as secretary and sale manager. He was also a Mason-Dixon Hereford Association charter board member and served that organization as president. He is a past board member of the West Virginia Hereford Association. Outside the Hereford industry, he has served on the County Planning Commission board for 28 years, including several terms as president. He has been a parish council member for 28 years and has also served the council as president. He has been a Farm Bureau state delegate and legislative committee member. He recently served on a Strategic Plan Task Force for his county. Owning a small town dental practice for 36 years, Les has served on the Western Pennsylvania Dental Society board and has been a state delegate to the Pennsylvania Dental Society since 1973. He has chaired the ethics committee and has served on various task forces. Les and his wife, Nancy, have two children and four grandchildren.

Phillip Moon Dale Micheli Dale Micheli, Ft. Bridger, Wyo., along with his father and brother, manage a 600-head cow-calf and yearling outfit. They have about 150 purebred Hereford cows, 125 registered Angus and 300 commercial cows. The family hosts an annual fall production sale at the ranch and market about 80 bulls. The Micheli family has had Hereford cattle since about 1917 and has been a seedstock supplier for nearly 80 years. Dale also owned and operated a meat processing plant and has experience in cutting meat and marketing beef. Dale has been actively showing and judging cattle his entire life. He is past president of the Wyoming Hereford Association and served as a director for 25 years. He has been a delegate to the AHA Annual Membership Meeting many times. Dale has traveled the country and judged Hereford shows at Ft. Worth, the Cow Palace, San Antonio and numerous field days and state and county fairs. Dale, along with other members of his family, is an active member of the Wyoming Stockgrowers Association. Dale served on the Wyoming Livestock Board and as chairman of that group for a two-year term. He has been a dedicated volunteer judging coach for 4-H and FFA for 30 years. He has coached numerous state champion teams that went on to place in the top five at the national meat judging contest. Dale also officiated basketball for 30 years and was inducted into the Wyoming Officials Hall Of Fame. He says refereeing helps him maintain a level head and calm demeanor when in tough situations. Dale and his wife, Terry, have six children and four grandchildren.

Kevin Schultz A fifth generation farmer and rancher, Kevin Schultz, Haviland, Kan., manages his family’s Sandhill Farms, a diversified farming and cattle operation in south-central Kansas. The farming operation consists of dryland and irrigated corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. The cow herd includes about 300 cows. With the maturity of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the Schultzes are in an expansion phase. Through the use of ET (embryo transfer), approximately 200 of the calves will be registered and the balance will be purebred commercial. The commercial cows have been purebred Hereford since the mid 1940s. The family has fed out its steers at commercial feedlots for the past 15-20 years. Feedlot performance data as well as the individual carcass data have been collected and tracked.

Phillip Moon, Harrison, Ark., has been involved in the cattle business since an early age and started a registered Hereford herd in 1988. Today his cow herd, including bred replacement heifers, totals 125 head and is predominately registered Herefords but also includes registered Red Angus and crossbred (Hereford, Red Angus and black Angus) cows. As a National Hereford Feedout (formerly Genetic Outreach Program) participant since 2004, Phillip has retained ownership on 95% of all Hereford steers through harvest. Since 2008 he has retained ownership of all Hereford heifers not kept as replacements. Actual feedlot performance and carcass data are collected and used to make selection decisions for replacement heifers and bulls offered for sale. All Hereford-sired crossbred calves and other commercial calves are age and source verified and are either sold through regional livestock markets or local livestock markets. Bulls are sent to Green Springs Bull Test in Nevada, Mo., to collect post-weaning performance data including feed conversion, rate of gain and residual feed intake. Bulls are sold private treaty or at select consignment sales. Phillip is a member of the Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri Hereford Associations. He has served two years as president of the Arkansas association and three years as secretary/treasurer. He served two terms as president of the State Presidents Council and one year as vice president. He has attended numerous AHA leadership events including the World Hereford Conference in Ft. Collins, three Hereford Young Guns conferences and the Hereford Directions Summit. He has been a delegate to the AHA Annual Membership Meeting for eight years. He is also a member of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Arkansas Cattlemen’s Association and Boone County Cattlemen’s Association. This year he served as Boone County Fair beef superintendent. Phillip is married to Lisa Sparrow and he has two stepsons. The registered program was started after Kevin graduated from Kansas State University in 1986. Prior to 2008 all Sandhill bulls were sold private treaty. In 2008 the family started a spring bull sale. In the past two sales, 70% of the bulls were sold to commercial buyers, and the other 30% to registered breeders. In the sale next spring all 5-year-old cows that are pregnant with heifer calves will sell. Sandhill genetics have been part of the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) and the Circle A Ranch heterosis project. Kevin uses these programs to increase the accuracy and predictability of his bulls and identify outliers that will help move the breed in the desired direction. Kevin has been a longtime member of the Kansas Polled Hereford Association, serving multiple terms on the board and as president. In 2004 he was AHA’s nominee to the NCBA Young Cattlemen’s Conference. Kevin has served on numerous local and state boards, being an officer in most. These include church, school, groundwater management, Extension, Farm Bureau, Kansas Livestock Association and others. Kevin and his wife, Vera, have three children. continued on page 56...

...Annual Meeting continued from page 55

All six candidates had a chance to respond to three questions. Below are the questions and the candidates’ responses. Why are you running for the Board? Copeland

Hereford cattle have allowed my family to live and ranch at this location since 1943. Our Herefords have paid for two ranch divisions and provided for us through thick and thin. They have allowed us to meet and become friends with some of the best people on earth. So, I feel that I owe the breed and this Association a tremendous debt. I have a vested interest in the future of Herefords too. If my varied experience in most phases of the Hereford industry can, in some small way, allow me to provide guidance for the future prosperity of the breed and pay back a little for what the breed has done for me, then I would be honored to help in any way that I can.

Lueck

I am very passionate about the Hereford breed. I live and breathe it every day. I feel privileged to do so. It would be an honor to represent my fellow breeders.

Micheli

I love Hereford cattle and they have been very good to my family; thus, I want to give back and try my best to help this wonderful breed gain back market share. I have made a lot of friends in this breed and I just want to go to work to promote good cattle and people. We have to be diligent and aggressive in this modern world to get our product and genetics sold. I believe the integrity of the people in the Hereford breed of cattle is unmatched and want to do all I can to help keep raising cattle a viable business.

Midla

AHA is at that junction in history where it can take advantage of opportunities to once again become a force in the cattle industry. It would be a privilege to steer efforts in the right direction and a challenge to proudly serve the AHA membership. By bringing energy and passion for the Hereford breed, I would be putting to use a background of leadership in my profession, community and church as well as agriculture.

Moon

In the past I have been asked by several of our members to consider running for a position on the Board of Directors. In June of this year, I was contacted again, and I made the decision to run for a Board position. I believe my personal experiences in various areas of the cattle industry, my involvement in local, state, and national livestock organizations, my involvement as a member of the AHA, and my lifelong personal commitment to the enhancement of the Hereford breed provide me with the experience and knowledge to contribute to the growth of the Hereford breed and the AHA.

Schultz

I have a deep passion for the cattle business and the Hereford breed. I would enjoy assisting the leadership of the breed in shaping and bring the AHA into the next phase of the cattle business.

56 Hereford World / October 2009

What are some goals or ideas you have for the Association? Copeland My goals are:

1) Keep the Association financially strong and stable. 2) Continue to promote Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) as vigorously as possible as this will increase demand for Hereford genetics. 3) Continue strong support of all junior programs, as they will be the future breeders and consumers of our product. 4) Constantly look at and re-evaluate our performance programs to see that they are accurate and supply the information that the Hereford breeders and the commercial industry need. 5) Continue show programs for the breed, as this provides opportunities for breeders and industry to get together and network better than anything else that we can do at this point, as well as provide niche marketing opportunities and outside revenue streams into the breed. 6) Always be looking into emerging technologies such as DNA, RFI (residual feed intake) and whatever else comes along that may help us to more accurately predict the performance of our cattle.

Lueck

I would like to see continued the growth and use of Hereford genetics in the beef industry. I feel it is important to keep the breeders and new customers updated about the ever-changing technology and how it applies to our genetics and how it benefits the beef industry. I believe that it is important to maintain our Hereford breed and the Association to keep it relevant for generations to come.

Micheli

We need to gain back the market share that we have lost to other cattle breeds. I have always believed that Hereford cattle have an advantage on the rail. I operated a processing plant for eight years and always had happy customers with Hereford beef. One of my goals is with the CHB program. I believe I am uniquely qualified to help that program grow because of my meat cutting and meat judging experience. I would like to help expand the CHB program to help sell Hereford cattle. I would like to see Hereford cattle bring a premium at market because of the demand for CHB beef.

Midla

The AHA must be “goal” oriented. These goals fit into two – what to do for the organization and what to do for the breed. For the organization, it must increase registration numbers and change the perception of Herefords more favorably. For the breed, it must drive toward eliminating prolapse and other detrimental issues and continue its march toward increasing the number of genetically good cattle that are free of defects. If Herefords do these things, cattlemen will use them.

Moon

My goals are: 1) To convince the cattle industry that a “whiteface” signifies enhanced value opportunities and greater efficiency at any level or segment within the industry. 2) To increase annual registrations to no less than 100,000 per year and increase whole herd cow inventory to a minimum of 150,000 cows. 3) To increase adult active memberships to 5,000 or more. 4) To increase sales of Hereford genetics by renewing and regaining the confidence of every segment of the beef industry and increase the volume of Hereford beef sales through other processing and distribution channels and methods in addition to the current CHB program.

5) To recruit and retain junior members in the adult organization by reducing or eliminating certain membership fees and reducing registration and whole-herd reporting fees until the age of 28.

Schultz

Enhance the image, perception and demand for Herefords. Look for ways for a broader based harvesting and distribution of CHB. Promotion that show the advantages of using Hereford breeding stock. The AHA needs to provide the members with the tools they need to produce the cattle that they, the members, want. Planning committees that involve the members giving input to the Board and staff. Specifically, this might include DNA accuracies of pedigrees free of genetic defects, and data that support more accurate and new EPDs (expected progeny differences).

What is the biggest issue the AHA will face in the next five-10 years? How does the Board prepare to face that issue? Copeland

I don’t see us as having any single big issue. I wish it could be made that simple. I will try to hit a few high spots. We are looking at shrinking cattle numbers and demand for beef. Input costs are high and some think we will continue to see excess feedlot capacity. Additionally we may be leaning toward more grassfeds and half-feds. We must evaluate how Hereford cattle fit in that scenario. The average age of ranchers and farmers in America is somewhere in the 50s. We have a generation of young managers who have not been educated as to the advantages the Hereford breed has to offer the commercial cattle industry. Our breed is much improved and there is a lot of data out there that our Association and other researchers have generated to prove we have many things to offer. Efficiency is the buzzword, and we have that to offer in great supply! We must hit the beef industry media and universities that are turning out the next generation of producers, the feeding and packing industry, and anyone else that will listen with everything we can muster, to educate them that we are part of what is missing and that we can help the industry be profitable. The time is right, our cattle are right, the industry needs what we can supply, and we have not had an opportunity like this in the last 30 years. We must get it right, and get it right now, or we may never have the opportunity to do so again.

Lueck

We are seeing continued growth in DNA research. The evolution of data and the speed at which it is occurring will be a challenge for our Association. We need to look at the reliability and correlation to an animal’s breeding value. The adaptation of this data and how we integrate this technology will be crucial. I believe we will have to align our Association with an outside organization to validate and document our data and allow more research in future genetic markers and marker panels.

Midla

Increasing registration numbers: the Board must set goals, take steps to partner with present members and measure progress. The prescription for this is:

• to know which financial issues within the AHA restrict participation

• to know how to attract the never ending

population of new breeders to become Hereford breeders

• to slow the number of registered breeders who

are moving to a second breed (and thus reducing their Hereford numbers and Hereford priorities) www.hereford.org


• to make member interaction with AHA easier, faster, more accurate and all around more business friendly

• to devise incentives to register more Herefords Change is something that needs to be understood and applied properly within the traditions of our breed to have a favorable outcome. It is critical that our organization embrace change while respecting those traditions. By understanding the changes that are needed and acting properly, we can create favorable outcomes for the Association, for the breed and, most importantly, for our member breeders.

Micheli

It looks like with the current administration in Washington, environmental issues may be the biggest threat to all cattlemen. Public lands grazing is a huge issue in Wyoming and other western states. Those are issues for all cattlemen of all breeds. I believe the biggest issue for Hereford breeders remains the marketing of our cattle and convincing feeders, sale barn operators and country buyers that Herefords are efficient and profitable.

Moon

Competition within every segment of the cattle industry increases and intensifies each and every day. In my opinion, the biggest challenge facing the AHA the next five to 10 years is the very same issue it has faced the past 25 years and continues to be a critical issue, which is to increase the value of red-hided whiteface calves to a level where they bring an equal or greater price than their black-hided counterparts, regardless if these calves are straightbred Hereford, or Hereford crosses with other breeds. Even though certain areas of our country have solved this problem, this particular issue cannot be overlooked. We must continue to create solutions to combat resistance and discounts for Hereford and red-hided cross calves and convince cow-calf producers, feedlot operators and packers across this nation that red-hided whiteface calves provide enhanced profit potential and will return significant premiums from the infusion of Hereford genetics. To meet this challenge, the Board of Directors should intensify research and development programs and target other markets and create new marketing opportunities and channels of distribution beyond the present CHB program to expand the use of Hereford genetics within the industry. The black baldie has long been a standard in the industry; however, concentrating additional promotion efforts on crossing Hereford genetics with other breeds is the next step to increasing market share and expanded marketing opportunities for the Hereford breed, our members and our Association.

Schultz

We need to do more with less. For several reasons, the U.S. commercial beef cow herd is in a contracting phase. Our job as cattlemen will be to produce more pounds of consistent, better tasting, healthy beef with fewer cows in the U.S. cow herd. I believe we, as cattlemen, will be confronted with faster, newer “Star Trek” technology. Genetic engineering, managing feed efficiency information and environmental issues, are just a few examples. I believe it will be one of AHA’s jobs to assist members by disseminating the information into what is helpful and accurate and in a usable form. We will need to keep all the data open to our members and not allow it to be privatized by large corporate companies. Addressing these issues might include working with other groups, companies or associations that have different areas of expertise or education and yet have similar goals to AHA. Member-run focus committees and employees full-time or contracted will be internal ways that we can achieve the same end. The AHA will need to provide all these services and programs with tight revenues. Money management will continue to be critical at all times. HW www.hereford.org

HW

AHW, NOP to Vote on Consolidation Proposal in KC

T

he Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) formed by the American Hereford Women (AHW) and National Organization of Poll-ettes (NOP) to explore the possibility of one combined national organization for women in the Hereford business has released its proposal for consideration by each organization’s membership. The proposal is available on the AHW Web site at http://ahw.hereford.org and the NOP Web site www.poll-ettes.com or from any AHW or NOP director. As defined by Robert’s Rules of Order, the SPC is proposing a consolidation of two existing societies — not a merger. There is a very important distinction between the two. In a consolidation two or more organizations each discontinue their independent existence, and a new entity is formed that includes the memberships of the consolidating organizations, continues their work and assumes their assets and liabilities. The resulting new organization may be given a new name, which may include elements of the names of each of the combining organizations. In contrast, in a merger one of the two organizations continues while the other ceases to exist because it is merged (absorbed) into the other organization. Given the history, mission and current programs of AHW and NOP, consolidation is certainly more appropriate and advantageous than merger for everyone involved. The SPC asks that everyone downloads or requests a copy of the 23-page proposal, reviews it and sends comments to the SPC. Comments will be reviewed and incorporated as needed, resulting in a revised proposal. The revised

58 Hereford World / October 2009

version will be brought to a vote at the respective membership meetings in Kansas City.

on paper ballots, will be counted by a committee of five election auditors (three NOP directors and two NOP members outside the board).

Plan to attend forum, annual meetings

Review of the proposal

Women’s Forum on the Future II will be at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30 at the Hilton President Kansas City. This will be an opportunity to ask questions and voice support or concerns regarding the proposal. For AHW members the vote will occur at the AHW annual membership

The SPC invites discussion, questions and suggested revisions from the membership. There was a 12-day comment period for members to offer suggested changes and comments (Sept. 9-21). The SPC was then to review the comments and compose a revised proposal, which will then be

for 2010 and prepare any necessary closeout documents, reports filings, etc. The NOP closeout/transition team will: manage all current NOP programs for 2010 and prepare any necessary closeout documents, reports filings, etc. New association start-up team will: complete the process to incorporate, transition funds and programs from AHW/NOP to the new association, prepare bylaws and operating procedures for member approval in October 2010.

Proposed name The SPC proposes the name of the new association to be the National Hereford Cattlewomen’s Association (NHCA). See proposed logo with the organization’s mission to the left.

Proposed bylaws meeting at 9 a.m. Oct. 31 at the Hilton President Kansas City. AHW bylaws state that a vote of the majority of the members present at the time of the meeting is required to act on business matters. An AHW member may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing by the member. AHW members may request a proxy form from any member of the AHW board of directors. For NOP members the vote will occur at the NOP annual membership meeting at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 31 at the Hilton President Kansas City. NOP members unable to attend the October meeting may request an absentee ballot from the CPA. Each ballot is to be signed; the CPA will cross check each ballot to the membership list. The CPA will tabulate the absentee ballots and provide a written report to NOP. The absentee vote report along with on-site vote at the meeting in Kansas City, also cast

made available to the members 30-plus days before the meeting.

If consolidation is approved In the event of consolidation and formation of a new association, SPC suggests that 2010 serve as a transition year in which the new association board will consist of 12 AHW directors, 12 NOP directors and a president of their selection from outside this group plus up to three SPC advisors. There are a multitude of details that need to be attended to during this time in order to transition business activities of two existing groups into one new association. The SPC suggests that the new association board form three teams, each with eight assigned directors, to attend to current business and the transition while ensuring seamless continuation of all current AHW and NOP programs and activities. The AHW closeout/transition team will: manage all current AHW programs

The proposed bylaws are provided to offer members the opportunity to review the suggested bylaws for the new association. The proposals can be downloaded from the AHW or NOP Web sites or e-mail for an electronic copy. Those who need a printed copy may contact their area director or the SPC. The proposed bylaws are a compilation of AHW, NOP and AHA bylaws written with the intention of incorporation in Missouri. For more info call any of the SPC members or visit the AHW or NOP web sites.

Rethinking Winter Feeding Strategies Considerations for trimming the feed bill in a new era of volatile prices. by Kindra Gordon

I

t’s a commonly noted fact that feed cost is the highest variable cost for most cow-calf operations. So how might you save some dollars and make better sense of feeding strategies for your cow herd? Aaron Stalker, an assistant professor of ruminant nutrition at the University of Nebraska’s West Central Research and Extension Center in North Platte, suggests it’s a matter of rethinking your traditional feeding strategies and looking for suitable alternatives. Here are some options to consider:

Re-evaluate calving date “In my opinion one of the most common mistakes is that people try to change the forage nutrient supply to meet the cow’s needs.

I suggest doing it the other way around — matching the cow’s needs to available forage nutrients — is more profitable,” Stalker says. Specifically, Stalker says a change in calving date to better match forage resources can be a cost-effective option. He reports that research at the Gudmundson Sandhills Laboratory — which is operated as a working ranch — has resulted in data comparing June and March calving herds for several years, and the June herd is more profitable than the March herd. “The reason is because the June calving herd has lower costs, not necessarily higher revenue,” Stalker explains. He says this change is a prime example of how matching forage resources to the cow’s nutrient needs can help reduce feed costs. Stalker adds that more

producers seem to recognize this advantage and, at least in Nebraska, they are starting to see a shift toward more summer and fall calving. He cites a survey conducted in 1992 of producers in western and central Nebraska to monitor what season ranch operations calve in, and when a follow-up survey was conducted in 2002, an increasing number of summer and fall calving dates were revealed. Stalker recognizes that for some operations a change to summer calving may not be an option if they have farm ground and field work that takes the bulk of their labor supply during the summer. But for those ranchers who calve in the spring simply because of tradition, he suggests moving calving dates might be worth giving a second thought. And, to those operations that plan to continue with a spring calving herd, Stalker suggests looking for ways to extend grazing options as much as possible through stockpiled forages or crop residues. He tells that the Gudmundson lab has conducted research and has found that extending winter grazing of a March-calving herd can help reduce the amount of hay fed compared to traditional feeding. “Whenever a producer can extend grazing of winter range, feed costs can be decreased,” Stalker says. In addition, a June calving herd utilizes significantly less stored feed.

Be supplement savvy Stalker says when it comes to evaluating supplements, there can be several surprises that challenge traditional thinking, as well. First, he says research conducted at Gudmundson with the March calving herd is indicating that supplements need to be fed — but not for the reason you would think. He explains that traditionally supplements are thought to be fed to enhance rebreeding success of the cow, but Stalker says, “We’ve found we need to feed supplements to March calving cows to increase the performance of their offspring — that’s a paradigm shift.” Stalker says the research showed that rebreeding success on cows was sufficient without

supplementation, but it was their offspring who did not perform as well if no supplementation was fed. “The steer calves were lighter and the heifer calves were not as fertile, resulting in lower conception rates as they matured to breeding age,” Stalker reports. For this research at Gudmundson, a distillers’ grainbased range cake was used in the study as the supplement, which supplied both protein and energy. As producers evaluate supplement options, Stalker advises looking at different types of feedstuffs. He says, “I think producers get caught up in feeding a certain type of supplement.” As an example, he says some producers tend to always feed alfalfa as a protein source. “The type of feed is not as important as meeting the cow’s nutrient needs. A cow needs protein — it does not necessarily have to be from alfalfa,” Stalker explains. Instead, he says, “Look for a feed source that offers the least expensive source of supplemental protein — and purchase and delivery cost changes from year to year.” This means producers need to do their homework. To help calculate feedstuff options, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers a free “feed cost calculator” online at www.agmanagerstools.com. Stalker explains that this calculator allows for inputting purchase and delivery costs on up to 10 feedstuffs to determine which offers the least expensive supplement on a per unit supplement basis. He emphasizes that in order to compare feeds accurately, it is essential to compare prices on a per unit supplement basis. As a final tip, Stalker also suggests soliciting bids for your feeds. He says, “I know producers who have saved $30 to $40 per ton on the exact same feedstuff by calling more than one feed supplier. So a person can really save money by making some calls.” In total, Stalker reiterates that the bottom line with regard to managing feed costs is to understand the cow’s nutritional requirements throughout the year and then match available forage and feed to that. HW

Additional advice University of Nebraska ruminant nutritionist Aaron Stalker says an additional cost-saving tip with regard to feedstuffs is to look for regional availability on special co-products. As an example, in Nebraska wet distillers’ grains are proving to be an effective supplement. At the Gudmundson research facility, the wet distillers are being fed on the ground to cows on winter range. “We are finding that the wet distillers can be quite a bit more economical to feed than cake,” Stalker says. Analyzing forages for nutrient content can also be a tool to help create a “least-cost ration” for cows, suggests Jason Ahola, an Extension beef specialist who recently joined the Colorado State University faculty and was formerly at the University of Idaho. However, Ahola says less than 10% of cow-calf producers analyze their forages for nutrient content,

60 Hereford World / October 2009

based on U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) survey data. And, only about one-quarter of those producers actually develop a least-cost ration. As a result, many U.S. beef cows are receiving excess nutrients and/or a ration that is not least-cost, Ahola says. He suggests producers tap into a free and easy-to-use computer ration balancing program such as the tools available from University of Nebraska-Lincoln www.agmanagerstools.com or from Oklahoma State University’s “COWculator.” The software and directions are available at www.ansi.okstate.edu/exten/cowculator/. Development and use of a simple ration enables animal requirements to be met while ensuring optimum performance, Ahola says.

Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009 • At the farm

This heifer will play an important role at SRR as we go forward. She is the replacement for CMR Stella P606 140N. This is a great cow that we bought as a heifer at CMR. She is a P606 daughter and is a very well made cow with a near perfect udder. We sold this cow to Kevin Self at Dead End Ranch this summer. The heifer is out of K 64H Ribstone Lad 157K. This bull is doing a lot for us. If you are looking for the three M’s, Mass, Muscle, and Marbling, he does the job. When you couple that with Stella, you really get the job done.

Richard and Hunter Grayson, Black Hat Ranch, Watkinsville, Ga., were honored as the 2009 Clarke-Oconee Cattleman of the Year. This award is presented annually to a member of the ClarkeOconee Cattleman’s Association in recognition of his dedication and effort to raise awareness of the effect of the cattle industry in his community.

The late Lucian Earl Welty Sr. was inducted into the Georgia Hereford Hall of Fame April 3 during the Georgia Hereford Association (GHA) annual banquet. Lucian was associated with the Hereford cattle breed his entire life serving as a fieldman for many years. Pictured accepting the award is his son, Lucian Welty Jr., from Whitney Hunt, GHA director.

The late Charles “Charlie” Selway, Williamstown, Mo., will be inducted into the Livestock Producers Hall of Fame during the Missouri Livestock Symposium Dec. 4. Charlie spent his entire life, except for the years served in the U. S. Air Force, on the same farm. His love and passion for his Hereford cattle led him to be involved in many aspects of the livestock industry. He owned and managed a herd of 120 Herefords. He served as an advisor for the Missouri Junior Hereford Association. The 2009 Missouri Livestock Symposium will be at the Kirksville Middle School. The Symposium features an agriculture and consumer oriented trade show and educational speakers from 12 states. It also features country music entertainment on Saturday night, following the

In Passing Frank A. Wilson, 89, Sulphur, Okla., passed away July 27.

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 Oct. 1, 1910, issue:

• A total of 30 herds from 10 states entered 310 head for the 1910 American Royal, which was scheduled for Oct. 10-15 in Kansas City. • This issue included a section of state and regional show results. The headline in that section read, “A Wonderful Showing of Herefords: Whiteface exhibitors make the best display in years.” The article went on to say that competition was close with high averages in quality and a remarkable scarcity of poor animals. Highlights in the Oct. 15, 1910, issue:

• Prof. R.J. Kinzer was elected to succeed C.R. Thomas as AHA secretary. C.R. had served in the position for 27 years. The article said Prof. Kinzer was a “clean, capable, and likeable man with great ability and many friends.” Kinzer had previously been in charge of the animal husbandry department of the Kansas Agricultural College in Manhattan, Kan. • Hereford steers had been breaking records at the Denver market the previous few months, and the highest prices ever obtained there for straight grass steers were for Herefords. A group of 2- and 3-year-old steers that averaged 1,238 lb. sold for $6.35. • It was reported the 1910 Annual Meeting was the most harmonious Hereford meeting ever held. Year-end income figures presented were $39,199.13, of which $30,738 was received for entry fees and $1,916.50 for transfer fees. The expenditures amounted to $40,160.31, of which $20,571 was paid out in premiums at various shows and fairs. — Angie Stump Denton, editor

HEREFORD RANCH

These bulls are working on a cow herd ranked 17th in the nation for Dams of Distinction. We start calving the third week in March. In northern North Dakota, the conditions at this time of the year are less than favorable. These cows are expected to calve on their own and get a live calf up sucking. They flat out do it! These are minimum maintenance cattle in tune with Mother Nature. They work for us under the harshest of conditions. They will work for you.

First Blood is a stout and powerfully made bull that was held back to use in our herd for numerous reasons… 1) As a direct son of Rambo we have used him extensively in our own herd. 2) Out of the popular PR 59J Lass N57 cow who is one of the most powerful cows in the breed. 3) Out of a cow that would have qualified for DOD had she not been flushed (resulting in the flush that First Blood came out of). 4) With a low actual birth weight, he has even been used on heifers (15 calves averaged 78 lbs. at birth). 5) Simply put…he is Really, Really Good.

Craig Crutcher, Manager 12526 N. Weldon Rd. • Rockford, IL 815.335-2824 • Cell: 815.289-2855

First Blood has two flush mates that are now donors for us and we expect great things to happen in their future. We have raised and sold a lot of bulls at Perks Ranch, but First Blood is one of the most unique bulls that we have had the opportunity to watch grow and develop into a true Herd Bull.

Photos taken September 2009 of 18 month-old EE Hereford Bulls. These bulls are an excellent example of our continuing efforts to breed cattle that have the ability to grow and develop without excessive amounts of feed. Our customers appreciate this approach and understand that efficiency is not a new concept at EE.

Mississippi and Kansas Horned Hereford Bulls bred and developed in common sense programs with many years of experience.
