Keeping the Momentum

by Jack Ward

The AHA documented another strong year and set a strategic plan for the future.

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

The American Hereford Association (AHA) just closed out fiscal year 2017, and it has been another great year with all businesses within AHA seeing growth. There has certainly been a lot of things accomplished over the past year including the release of the new website, a new strategic plan set in place (subscribers to all 11 issues of the Hereford World will find as an insert in the center of this issue), the growth of the Hereford Advantage program, the first-ever National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) Fed Steer Shoot Out and the development of a new national ad campaign, “The Bald-Faced Truth About Hereford Genetics.”

You can find the creative portion of the new national ad below, and you can see it’s focus is clearly set on the commercial industry and the advantage of Hereford in a crossbreeding scheme. The Bald-Faced Truth is Hereford can add fertility, longevity, efficiency, disposition and structural soundness without sacrificing calving ease, growth or end product merit. This has been well documented through various large-scale commercial herd projects throughout the country.

Board was joined by John Butler, Beef Marketing Group; Mitch Abrahamsen, a geneticist; and Clint Schwab, The Maschhoffs, to put together a strategy for the AHA to continue its path of growth and expansion in the commercial, feedlot and packer sectors. The meeting was facilitated by Kevin Ochsner, Agcellerate. You can review the new vision and mission statements along with the core strategies and key initiatives for the strategic plan provided in this issue.

The vision

Looking ahead

The AHA spent several months collecting information through surveys for our strategic planning session. The

It has been a good year for the AHA, and as we look to 2018, there are plenty of projects on the table for us to keep our momentum and strength within the industry. Breed improvement projects will be at the forefront as we transition into our new genetic evaluation software, BOLT. Along with the new software, AHA will add Dry Matter Intake (DMI) and Sustained Cow Fertility (SCF) expected progeny differences (EPDs). This new software will allow all of the traits to have a genomic enhancement. As we move forward, there will be a new pricing structure for DNA testing that will make testing more affordable. The Board has made the commitment to have all animals that have a DNA test completed to be updated with a set of genomic-enhanced EPDs (GE-EPDs).

Join us I encourage everyone to set aside some time to join us on Oct. 27-28 at The Westin in Kansas City, Mo., for our Annual Meeting and Conference. This year, we have expanded the educational program on Oct. 27 to be a full day event with the entire morning devoted to breed improvement. In the afternoon, we will have breakout sessions to cover various topics, and later in the evening, we will have the Hereford Honorees Reception. One of the highlights of that evening will be the awards for the first NJHA Fed Steer Shoot Out. You can find a full schedule of events on Page 30. It has been another exciting year, and the AHA has positioned itself well to continue being a leader in the industry. Congratulations to the entire membership.

Board Action

Board Meeting Highlights

The American Hereford Association (AHA) Board of Directors met Aug. 15-17, 2017, in Amarillo, Texas. The following are highlights of the meeting: Committee chairmen presented reports and led discussion focused on finances, breed improvement items, a new national ad campaign, the new strategic plan and Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®).

that have a DNA test completed will also have their genotype completed and will receive a set of genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs).

Finance

Marketing and communications

Bob Thompson, chairman, led discussion and reviewed the 2017 year-end projections, which showed the AHA adding to reserves through a profit after depreciation. The Board approved a surplus budget of $43,058 after depreciation of $190,631. The AHA is projected to generate more than $6.5 million in revenue in the next year from its parent company and subsidiaries. The AHA will work to utilize those funds to advance the breed through member service, promotion and advertising, research, commercial marketing and advertising, youth development, and CHB promotion.

Kyle Pérez introduced the staff from AdFarm, who gave a presentation on the creative options of a new national ad campaign. They also shared the strategy for placement for both AHA and CHB. The Board unanimously selected the national ad, “The Bald Face Truth About Herefords.” Placement will start in fall of 2017.

Breed improvement

Jim Bellis, chairman, presented the nominations for Hereford Hall of Fame and Hall of Merit honorees for 2017. The Board selected Byron Bayers of Montana and Lester Schafer of Minnesota for the Hall of Fame. The newest members of the Hall of Merit will be Eddie Simms of Oklahoma and Dwayne Dietz of Montana.

The Board was given a report from Bruce Golden, Theta Solutions, on the progress of the new genetic evaluation, BOLT, including the development of the new traits. An update will be given to the membership at the Annual Meeting and Conference. AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell updated the Board on a new pricing schedule from GeneSeek, and the Board unanimously passed a motion that all animals

Performance Matters

Heterosis Works

by Shane Bedwell

Utilizing Hereford in a crossbreeding program has proven paybacks.

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

Mother nature surely has given the country something to watch this past couple of months. Between devastating hurricanes and unruly fires, she has wrecked a lot of folks’ livelihoods. I certainly wish everyone involved in these tragedies a speedy recovery. Again, events like these remind us how important family is and how quickly we can lose sight of what’s important. The last couple of month’s I’ve had the opportunity to travel to several states and to interact with seedstock

and commercial breeders alike. It’s been exciting to witness the amount of enthusiasm for the breed right now and hear the success stories that producers utilizing Hereford genetics are having in their operations. The message is consistent and clear — heterosis works. This shouldn’t come as a shock to many of you as research on heterosis has been well documented and repeatedly proven. The great part about heterosis is that it packs a two-part punch:

1) direct heterosis — the increase in performance and health of the calf; and 2) maternal heterosis — the increase of cow productivity by gains in pregnancy rate, sustained fertility and more pounds of calf produced over a lifetime.

An unbeatable baldie That’s right; by turning out a Hereford bull on black or red cows, you’re going to have an unbeatable baldie. A steer calf that weighs more at weaning has advantage in terms of good health for the feedlot, while setting back a heifer replacement that can give you more longevity and increased production. And yes, I’m saying Hereford can give you all these advantages and more. You see, with heterosis, the more unrelated the two breeds utilized in crossbreeding are, the more bang you get for your buck. The United States Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC) Germ Plasm Evaluation showed that Hereford was the most unrelated breed as compared to other breeds, meaning that when selected for crossbreeding programs, Hereford can maximize both direct and maternal heterosis. In addition to this advantage, the strides the breed has made in the last 15 years through disciplined selection on calving ease and birth weight traits while increasing performance and endproduct merit traits have leveraged Hereford to be the logical choice to be that sire of choice. Plus, the breed has certainly improved udder and maternal qualities to make your replacements shine in the pasture. In the next few months, you will find a new national ad campaign “The Bald-Faced Truth About Hereford Genetics.” This ad focuses on and documents the facts in utilizing Hereford genetics in crossbreeding programs. If you are a commercial cattleman who is not taking advantage of heterosis — and, specifically, Hereford heterosis — I would encourage you to ask yourself, “Why not?” I’m sure many of you have been in the business long enough now to experience some really good times financially and some tough times you are glad are well behind you. Capitalizing on breed complementary and heterosis makes logical sense to take as much risk as possible out of today’s cattle market.

Fall 2017 Gold TPR Breeders Fifty-four Hereford breeders achieved Gold TPR™ (Total Performance Records) status for fall 2017. The Gold TPR Breeder recognition is presented to progressive Hereford breeders who have measured traits and collected and promptly submitted performance data at all levels of production. The Gold TPR program was established to recognize those breeders who go the extra mile to collect data at all levels of production and to report that data in a timely manner. Since the program’s inception in 2005, Hereford breeders have increased their data collection efforts. Breeders must meet a specific set of requirements in order to be eligible for the program. They are: • Submit herd inventory prior to date inventory surcharge goes into effect. • Complete reporting of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on inventory. • Complete reporting of birth weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of weaning weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of yearling weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop. • Complete reporting of scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight. • Report ultrasound data on 25% or more of the calf crop. Note: For weaning and yearling weights, disposal codes are accepted if the animal has been removed from the herd.

The following Hereford breeders were recognized as fall 2017 Gold TPR Breeders, organized by state:

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

by Laura Loschke

Calving ease and dam reproductive status for fall 2017

Reproductive Status Codes NS Next season NE Non-exposed CE6 Calf born dead or died shortly after CE7 Aborted/premature CE8 Open, missed out CE9 Died, calving difficulty CE10 ET donor dam CE11 ET recipient dam CE12 Multi-owned, no calf

Cow herd inventories for the fall 2017 calving season were due Sept. 1. As you’re looking at registering your calves, keep in mind the calving ease and reproductive status codes. Every dam that remained on your inventory must have a calf recorded with a calving ease score of 1-6. If no calf will be recorded, then a reproductive status (reason for no calf being recorded)

must be reported in order to stay compliant with the Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) program.

FAQs Q: I have a cow that didn’t calve this season but was on my inventory. What do I do? A: If any of the dams on your inventory didn’t calve, be sure to mark them with the appropriate reproductive status code indicating

why they didn’t calve. This step will ensure they don’t cause you to become non-compliant in the future. Q: Since submitting my inventory, I’ve bought a bred cow and now need to register her calf. How do I get her added to my inventory so I can add the calf? A: Simply submit the calf’s registration as normal. Once the calf is registered, the dam will automatically be added to that season’s inventory and transaction will be billed accordingly. Q: What are the requirements for registering a calf? A: In order to register a calf, the member’s annual dues and member service fee must be up to date. If those are up to date, the information required for the calf’s registration includes dam’s registration number, sire’s registration number, type of service, herd ID, tattoo (in at least one ear), sex, date of birth, calving ease score of 1-6 (for TPR breeders only), horned/polled/scurred status and registration name (for registered animals only). Q. What is a herd ID? A: A herd ID is the calf’s herd identification number. It can be the same as one of the tattoos. The maximum length is six characters. This ID must be unique within your herd. No two animals can have the same herd ID.

Member service fee reminder Member service fee and junior dues reminders were sent out in early September. If you are a MyHerd user (adult or junior), your reminder was emailed, not mailed. Any members not signed up for MyHerd were mailed their annual reminders.

Barbecue Kids-Que contest,” says CHB Chief Operating Officer Amari Manning. “We believe it is important to invest in the next generation of chefs and expose them to our Certified Hereford Beef product. The kids made some really impressive dishes with their CHB hamburger meat and steak.”

CHB was the official sponsor of the 11th American Royal World Series of Barbecue® Kids-Que Contest and National Beef donated CHB hamburger and steak meat to 75 ompeting teams.

The Kids-Que contest allows ages 6-15 to showcase their barbecue and grilling abilities to a panel of judges in a fun and educational environment. Ages 6-11 compete in the hamburger contest, while ages 11-15 compete in the steak contest. National Beef Packing Company, LLC donated the CHB hamburger and steak meat to the 75 teams, and each participant was given a CHB goodie bag. Manning and CHB Director of Commercial Programs Trey Befort participated in judging the Kids-Que. “It was fun to judge the Kids-Que and see Certified Hereford Beef featured at such a great event,” Befort says. “I enjoyed seeing the next generation of pit masters using Certified Hereford Beef product to create some really great entries in the contest.”

Norsten presents at the Minnesota American Culinary Federation Banquet CHB Regional Brand Manager Tim Norsten attended the Minnesota American Culinary Federation Banquet Aug. 29 in Buffalo, Minn. The American Culinary Federation is a group of accomplished executive chefs who gather to discuss the food and beverage industry and hot products on the market. Norsten presented the history of the Hereford breed and CHB to more than 40 executive chefs in attendance. Greater Omaha Packing Co. donated CHB steaks for dinner after the presentation. After hearing the feedback from the chefs in attendance, Norsten says the event was a huge success “The chefs were very impressed with the flavor profile of the steaks,” Norsten says. “They kept talking about how tender and juicy the steaks were. They were very complimentary about the quality of product and wanted to know how they could get Certified Hereford Beef to serve in their restaurants.” Kaylen Baker is the marketing and communications coordinator of Certified Hereford Beef.

Hereford Women

Celebrating a Tremendous Year

by Kim Herinckx

The National Hereford Women (NHW) have been busy preparing for our board meetings and Annual Membership meeting. We hope you will join us following the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday, Oct. 28.

of Dayton, Ohio, and Bonnie Reed of Hampton, Minn.; and Northwest, Dana Pieper of Palco, Kan. We look forward to having a special addition to this year’s meeting with a guest speaker and enhanced meeting format, along with honoring the 2017 Hereford Woman of the Year and thanking our retiring board members.

Annual Meeting highlights The nominating committee slated the following women to serve as NHW board members: Northeast, Sandra Ostgaard

Lot of the Year program review It’s has been a year since we announced the start of the Lot of the Year

fundraising campaign, and we have been thrilled with the response from breeders and are excited to see this program continue to grow. Lot of the Year was developed as a means for all breeders, sales and promoters to support the NHW and Hereford youth scholarships. The NHW awards five scholarships in addition to numerous awards and contests every year. Currently, two of these scholarships are fully funded in the Hereford Youth Foundation of America. The NHW is

working to fully fund the remaining scholarships to provide longevity to the program. As scholarships become funded at current levels, we look forward to increasing the funding levels and ultimately the scholarship payout amounts to our Hereford youth. The first sales for the Lot of the Year program were held in the fall of 2016 and throughout 2017. We would like to thank our inaugural year supporters: OHA Fall Festival Genetic Sale; Oregon Jr. Hereford Assn.; Barber Ranch Bull Sale; Double L Cattle Embryo Sale; Cottage Hill Farms; Northeast Texas Hereford Assn.; B&D Herefords; Mead Cattle Enterprises; Larsons’ Polled Herefords; Running L Ranch; and Hula Herefords. Through support from Hereford breeders coast to coast, the Lot of the Year program raised more than $5,000 toward Hereford youth scholarships. Any sale may participate in the Lot of Year program and pledge a percentage of the gross sales of the designated lot a year. This fundraiser is fully customizable for any size farm, ranch, or state sale. The standard pledge amount ranges from 2-10% of the gross from a single lot in the sale. NHW has marketing programs that correspond to the pledge levels. For more information on the Lot of the Year Sale program visit the NHW website at HerefordWomen.org or contact Lot of the Year chair, Kim Herinckx at 760-587-3097. We look forward to seeing you all in Kansas City to celebrate another tremendous year of Hereford cattle and fellowship.

...Docility Delivers continued from the cover

the lot to eat immediately, we kind of have to push them out of the way to get to the bunks.” He says a great percentage of the baldie cattle are more eager to get up to the feed bunk to eat. For Thompson, he didn’t realize the value of calmer cattle until he brought the calves back up for a second round of vaccinations. Although his Hereford-influenced cattle were not initially leaders in weaning weight as compared to continental-influenced calves, the breed’s docility showed an apparent advantage when weights started to fluctuate. The Hereford-influenced calves that were coming up to eat every day and were calmer passed their contemporaries on average daily gain. More skittish groups showed flat gains or even negative gains over the feeding period. “There’s definite value in disposition when you calculate things like feed efficiency,” Thompson says. “I’m not doubting other breeds performance in different scenarios or management styles, but for our operation, calmer cattle prove to gain efficiently.” Sustainability and docility are also proving to correlate with calmer cows staying in the herd longer. Thompson has been utilizing Hereford cattle genetics since 2009, when he bought his first horned Hereford bull and purebred females. In 2010 he had his first Hereford-sired calf crop. Since then, docility has played a major role in Thompson Cattle Co.’s replacement heifer selection. “Eight to nine years ago we probably didn’t have more than seven F1 baldie females in the herd, now there’s substantially more in the cow herd because those baldie females sure rise to the top in the replacement pen,” Thompson says. “They’re calmer cattle.” When it comes to the operation’s bred heifer sale, Thompson points out the baldie heifers are in demand and are some of the first to be purchased by his customers. Docility has played an important role in the operation’s breeding goals. Thompson recalls the standout calm temperaments of his Hereford bulls. “We’ve had two or

three Hereford bulls that you can, honest-to-goodness, take a feed bucket and walk the bull onto a trailer in the middle of a pasture,” Thompson shares. Kari White, American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) genetic programs coordinator, who has extensive education in genetics and breeding, agrees docile cattle earn their place within a herd. “In my experience, even producers tend to prefer those animals that are more docile, and those animals that are more docile tend to stay in the herd longer because they’re not getting culled for poor temperament,” she explains.

The scientific link Several studies have been conducted to link docility to other profitable traits with quantitative data. These research studies have discovered connections between stress and its effect on traits like fertility, feed efficiency and carcass merit. Jennifer Bormann, associate professor of animal breeding and genetics at Kansas State University, participated in the data analysis of a multi-university research study performed in Colorado in 2014 which analyzed temperament as a possible indicator of feedlot performance and carcass merit in beef cattle. Several previous studies showed positive correlations were discovered between temperament traits and cortisol concentration in the blood, suggesting cattle with more excitable temperaments were easily stressed. Temperament and docility can be measured in multiple ways. These include chute scores, exit velocity and blood cortisol or fecal

cortisol samples. Chute scoring is a subjective measurement taken on a 1-6 scale while the animal is confined but not restrained in a scale. Exit velocity is an objective measurement taken as the animal exits the chute. Cortisol is a measurable stress hormone found in cattle. A blood sample shows the stress at the time the sample is taken whereas a fecal sample displays metabolized cortisol, which shows stress experienced over the last several days. The multi-university feedlot study took numerous measurements on carcass traits and temperament scores through chute scores and exit velocity. The growth measures as derived from data collected throughout the study encompassing both weights and gain showed a weak but negative correlation with temperament traits. Bormann explains that these small negative effects of stress on weight gain add up, especially over hundreds or thousands of cattle. “There are some measurable effects,” she says. “But there’s a need for larger studies and bigger contemporary groups.” White, with the AGA, is a Kansas State University graduate who also worked with Bormann in 2014 on a two-part research study examining the relationships between docility and reproduction in Angus heifers with the goal of connecting docility to heifer pregnancy estimates. The study consisted of three cooperator herds in three separate locations. White notes pregnancy, especially fertility, is a difficult trait to evaluate scientifically because numerous factors affect it. “It is a challenging trait to get enough power for because we treat it likes it’s a threshold trait at zero or one, but it most likely lies on an underlying range,” White explains. This study investigated the relationship between temperament and fertility, indicated by firstservice artificial insemination conception rate by taking chute scores, exit velocity, fecal samples and blood samples. Body weight and age were also recorded. The heifers in the study had an ultrasound at 30 days to determine pregnancy status. The data combined from all three ranches did not show any significant predictors for 30-day pregnancy; however, once the data was separated by ranch, chute score

and body weight were significant predictors of heifer pregnancy at the one ranch. According to White a one-unit increase in average chute score (1 denoting docile, 5 denoting bad temperament) would reduce the probability of pregnancy at that ranch by 48%. Body weight showed a negative effect on pregnancy. White speculates this outcome is the result of those animals maturing later and not becoming pregnant within the study’s time frame. Although it was a relatively small sample size, Bormann says the more excitable cattle showed a lower pregnancy rate. She makes the connection between docility and profitability, even if it’s small scale. “The extra time it takes to handle and work higher strung cattle could be spent doing something else productive,” Bormann says. “And even if prioritizing docility only contributes a small amount toward heifer pregnancy rates, calves are expensive, if you get an extra calf a year — that’s real money.” Several other small-scale studies have been conducted across the country exploring the effect of stress and temperament on cattle productivity. Bormann and White are hopeful more data collection and research will potentially link docility to fertility in a more concrete way. “People consider temperament, like udder scores, a convenience trait,” Bormann says. “Some of these studies are showing that docility isn’t just convenient, but that there are some dollars tied to it beyond safety, facilities and time.”

Environmental factors Docility falls within the lowly to moderately heritable range, meaning that the expressed temperament in animals can also be influenced by environmental factors like proper cattle handling. Although the Hereford breed is recognized for generally calmer cattle, it’s imperative to provide an environment where cattle can learn to be calmer. Bormann points to a trend of stockmanship within the cattle industry, stressing that calmer cattle will ultimately decrease the risk to those that work and handle them. “If you take a pen of heifers, you can train them to be herded and to move calmly from pasture to pasture at a walk,” she explains. “You develop habituation with how you handle your cattle.” This creates a lower stress environment for all breeds. White believes producers have a responsibility to give their livestock a good environment where they have the chance to be docile. Docility continues to hold value within cattle operations, and White is confident the trait will continue to gain importance in cattle production. “Docility is definitely not just a trend in the industry, but a trait that’s here to stay,” she says. “I think more and more producers are realizing that temperament is one of the many factors that can inhibit performance.” Hereford.org

Six Candidates Vying for Board Positions The American Hereford Association (AHA) nominating committee has announced six Hereford breeders are contending for positions on the AHA Board of Directors. JA Jimmy Atlas North Texas cattleman Jimmy Atlas has been involved in the Hereford industry since his youth.

J

immy and his wife, Claudia, own and manage Atlas Farms, a registered Hereford and grain and cotton farming operation in Grandview, Texas. Jimmy was raised in north Texas on a cotton and commercial Hereford farm. He grew up involved in the Hereford breed as a junior member, showing horned and polled heifers and steers. Following college graduation, he and Claudia married and joined the AHA as lifetime members. He accepted his first job as a herdsman for Chisholm Trail Ranch in Rhome, Texas, a registered Hereford operation. Three years later the duo purchased their first Herefords and began Atlas Farms. As their daughter grew up, the family participated in each junior national Hereford show from 1989 to 2004. Atlas Farms has been in business for more than 40 years. In that time Jimmy and Claudia have expanded their operation from 90 acres to more than 3,000 by purchasing neighboring parcels of land. Today, the farm comprises 100 head of registered Hereford cow-calf pairs and 40 commercial females. Artificial insemination (AI) and embryo transfer (ET) are extensively utilized in their herd. They market show heifers, cow-calf groups and bulls to registered and commercial breeders. Atlas Farms runs cattle on land historically used for cotton farming. The Atlases have increased efficiency and reduced production cost per head by grazing cattle on harvested crop residue. The cropland provides limited shade and, therefore, heat resistance has become a priority in their breeding program. Their goal is to market functional, profit-making cattle to customers. Jimmy has served as president and director for the Texas Polled Hereford Association and is a current director of the Texas Hereford Association. He was also a junior advisor for the Texas Junior Polled Hereford Association. He is a Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association member, a Johnson County Farm Service Agency committee chairman and a First Methodist Church, Alvarado, member. Jimmy and Claudia have one daughter — Precious, and her husband, Sam — and two grandchildren.

NF Nate Frederickson Cattleman Nate Frederickson, Spearfish, S.D., is co-owner and operator of Frederickson Ranch in the Northern Black Hills of South Dakota.

N

Frederickson Ranch markets bulls through a private limited liability company called Pyramid Beef, which was created seven years ago as a marketing outlet for the ranch’s bulls and commercial females. Pyramid Beef has two outside partners and markets 150 bulls a year through the annual production sale, hosted at the bull development center on the ranch. Frederickson Ranch strives to provide its customers efficient, low-maintenance genetics along with exceptional customer service and avenues to help them add value to their bottom line. Prior to ranching full-time, Nate spent 14 years in the animal health industry working with veterinarians, distribution companies, feedlots and cow-calf operations. Nate is currently serving on the board of directors for the South Dakota Hereford Association and is a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spearfish.

ML Mark Largent Fourth-generation Hereford breeder Mark Largent manages the family business, Largent and Sons, in Kaycee, Wyo.

T

he family has 115 years of Hereford involvement, with the family first purchasing registered Herefords in 1902. Today, the fifth and sixth generations are living and working at Largent and Sons. Mark oversees a 225-head registered cow herd. He markets 125 bulls per year through the annual production sale, in its 35th year, and private treaty. Largent and Sons also sells 50 heifer calves each year through the production sale. The operation utilizes ET, AI and an exacting expected progeny difference (EPD) criteria for improvement. Mark focuses on carcass merit, reproduction traits, performance and feedlot efficiency. He has judged livestock on both the local and national levels including the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) carload and pen show, the NWSS junior show, the NWSS Red Angus show, the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE), the Wyoming State Fair and numerous field days and state fairs. Mark has also participated in feedlot feedout Certified Hereford Beef seminars and showed and consigned cattle to most major shows and sales across the United States. In the Hereford industry, Mark has served as president and vice president of the Wyoming Hereford Association and was a member of the direction committee. In his community, Mark has served as a Johnson County Co-op Board director, a Northeast Area Wyoming Southern Baptist Association president, and the Faith Community Church of Gilette pastor for 19 years. Mark and his wife, Cathy, have three children — Dave and his wife, Heather; Laura and her husband, Toby; and Sherry and her husband, Brad — nine grandchildren and one greatgrandson.

ate, along with his wife, Jayna, two young sons, Teegan and Tiernan, and his parents, Mark and Mary Kay, run 450-500 head of registered Hereford, Angus and commercial cows, which are used in their ET program.

MS Mark St. Pierre Mark St. Pierre is the beef manager at Pedretti Ranches in El Nido, Calif. He is a member of the Pedretti family, and has worked in the family business for 36 years.

A

t Pedretti Ranches, Mark manages the Hereford herd, which consists of 200 registered cows with 100 calving in the spring and 100 calving in the fall. The Pedrettis have long emphasized performance data in their Hereford herd with performance records dating back to the 1950s. While the ranch received recognition in the showring in the ’70s and early ’80s, including cattle shown on the Hill and in the carloads at the NWSS, the Pedrettis’ goal has always been to produce cattle that work for the commercial cattlemen in California. Pedretti Ranches raises approximately 80 bulls each year, which are marketed by private treaty sales. With two calving seasons six months apart, the ranch always has the next set of bulls on test. Both Mark and his father-in-law, Gino Pedretti, work with commercial customers. Pedretti Ranches focuses on sound cattle with balanced EPDs, good disposition and udder quality. Mark manages the day-to-day work including addressing herd health issues, vaccination schedules, feeding, pasture management, breeding and calving. He also works in the farming operation, which involves growing cotton, corn and hay, and has some limited duty on the family dairy. Mark has served as a California-Nevada Hereford Association board member and has hosted numerous tours. He has been a Merced-Mariposa County Cattlemen’s Association director, a member of the Chowchilla High School FFA ag advisory committee, a 4-H leader and a volunteer fireman. Mark has also served as a deacon and elder in his local church. Mark and his wife, Kim, have two children — a daughter, Christy, and a son, Matt, and his wife, Leah — and one granddaughter.

JW Joe Waggoner Hereford breeder Joe Waggoner, Carthage, Miss., has been raising cattle all of his life.

J

oe’s youth was shaped by experiences in both beef and dairy judging and exhibiting livestock. He learned the business from his father, and now, 55 years after purchasing his first Hereford calf, he manages the seedstock division of his family’s fourth-generation farm in central Mississippi — Waggoner Cattle Co. LLC. The family farm consists of a 150-head Hereford herd, a commercial herd and timber production. The purebred cattle are marketed regionally in the Southeast with partnerships for bull development and sales in Kansas while females are marketed private treaty. Joe works to improve herd genetics and performance through participation in the Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Hereford.org

Association (MBCIA), AHA Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) and genomic testing. Joe’s father also influenced his decision to obtain degrees in civil engineering and law. In 1976 Joe and his wife, Allison, founded a civil engineering and management business in Jackson, Miss. For the last 40 years, growing this firm and expanding the family cattle business have formed Joe’s professional career. Joe joined the American Polled Hereford Association in 1964 and became a member of the AHA following the merger of the polled and horned organizations. He has served as president, secretary and a board member of the Mississippi Polled Hereford Association and has sponsored field days at the farm. He is a member of the MBCIA, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the Beef Improvement Federation. Joe is also involved in chambers of commerce, economic development districts, state and national bar associations, the Society of International Business Fellows, the National Society of Professional Engineers, the American Council of Engineering Companies and Habitat for Humanity. Joe and Allison have two grown daughters — Alex Ayres and Olivia Claire.

DW Dennis White Sr. Louisiana Hereford breeder Dennis White Sr., Slaughter, La., has been in the cattle business for 35 years.

I

n 1982, while still in college, Dennis began raising cattle with his father. Upon graduation, he took a job with Performance Contractors, and today, 36 years later, is a project manager for the construction company. His cattle operation began with a commercial herd, which is now Whitebear Farms. In 2003 his children began showing Hereford cattle, which led to establishing Homerun Herefords. Dennis enjoyed many years of his family raising and showing Hereford cattle at local, state and national levels including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the NAILE. He and his wife, Mary, have since enjoyed attending the NWSS in Denver. Today, Dennis continues to raise both registered Hereford and commercial cattle. Homerun Herefords consists of a 140-head herd with approximately 80 head of purebred Herefords with 60 being crossed with Brahmans to producer F1 females. Dennis values the ability to communicate about and to offer Hereford genetics to commercial breeders in the South, as a Hereford-Brahman cross is highly sought after in his region. Dennis is a member of the Louisiana Cattlemen’s Association, the East Baton Rouge Cattlemen’s Association and the East Feliciana Cattlemen’s Association. He currently serves as the East Baton Rouge Parish 4-H Foundation board vice president and is also a member of the Zachary United Methodist Church board of trustees. Dennis and Mary have four children — Dennis White Jr. and his wife, Danielle; Brandy and her husband, Brad; Victoria and her husband, John; and Riley — and five grandchildren.

Candidate Q&A All six American Hereford Association (AHA) Board candidates had a chance to respond to three questions. Below are the questions and candidates’ responses.

Q A

Why are you running for the Board?

Jimmy Atlas

I have reached a point in my life where I have the time and the experience to serve our membership as a Board member. I am passionate about our breed and feel strongly that it is important that our Association continues to grow and to strive for even better genetics. We interact more with small breeders than large ones in our area. I hope to promote the idea of more small breeders embracing the use of expected progeny differences (EPDs) and understanding the importance of the registration process and how the information submitted to AHA makes our breed genetics stronger. Additionally, it is important to educate breeders and consumers that the majority of black baldie cattle in the Certified Angus feed pens are at least half Hereford influenced.

A

Nate Frederickson

I am running for the Board because, like every dedicated member, I am passionate about Hereford cattle and the importance of this breed to the beef industry. I would like to give back to an organization and breed that have contributed a large part to the success and sustainability of our operation. With two young children, it is imperative to me that we continue to grow one of the strongest youth programs in the country to hold the interest of the next generation.

A

Mark Largent

I’m running for the Board primarily to give back to the Hereford breed and its breeders and to continue in the leadership exampled by my father and grandfather — both past directors of AHA.

A

Mark St. Pierre

Several people talked to me about running for the Board over the last couple of years and got me thinking about it. I feel as if I am at a time in my life right now where I can make the time commitment. I bring 35 years of experience doing the day-to-day management of our beef herd. I enjoy meeting people and would love the opportunity to meet other breeders, to hear about their experience in the Hereford business and to share about my experience. I believe that it would be a fun and interesting experience.

A

Joe Waggoner

Like many friends and acquaintances within the Hereford industry who are passionate about our breed, I am committed to supporting and contributing to the advancement of Hereford to its appropriate position at the top of the beef cattle business. Being a member of the Board will serve as an extension of my current work and provide an effective forum to devote my energy and ideas in support of the Hereford cattle industry. It also represents an important way to say “thank you” for the many ways the Association

34

| October 2017

and individual members have helped me over the last fiveplus decades.

A

Dennis White Sr.

Through the years of breeding Herefords, I have learned of quality improvement processes utilized by some of the past leadership, and I want to be a part of the continued progress in making the breed and the Association the best that they can be. I also recognize the AHA representation from the South has been limited, and I am interested in expanding the visibility, need and presence for this region on the Board.

Q A

What are some goals or ideas you have for the Association? Jimmy Atlas

• Increasing brand recognition and consumer preference for Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) in the Southwest as it is in the Western region. Increasing CHB brand recognition and consumer preference is important for the future of our breed.

• Decreasing the price spread between black cattle and Hereford cattle at sale barns.

• Encouraging further understanding of the importance

of EPDs and the registration process with commercial breeders and of how they can use these tools to improve their herds and profitability.

A

Nate Frederickson

If I have the opportunity to serve on the board, one goal important to me is to continue to build on the importance of cross-breeding and the value of heterorsis. The AHA has done a great job on informing the commercial cow-calf sector of the true value of a Hereford bull on an Angus cow. I would like to help grow that interest by looking for additional ways to expand on economic and scientific data. Providing more information to the progressive-minded cattleman that the Hereford breed is and will continue to be at the top of the list when he looks for an alternative to an Angus bull.

A

Mark Largent

• To help promote all aspects of breed improvement. • To capture more commercial bull market. • To grow and to expand the impact of CHB nationally and internationally.

• To conduct a data-based study such as Harris Ranch.

A

Mark St. Pierre

I believe the biggest thing the Association can do for the Hereford breed is to preserve the integrity of the breed. I have watched the Association over the years handle challenges to the purity of the breed, navigate a merger and help manage genetic defects. Hereford.org


At the same time, I have seen the introduction of EPDs and their increase in accuracy, blood typing, online registry, mating predictor, whole herd reporting, genomic testing and several other tools to help us improve as producers. But, we need to keep our breed integrity, just as we keep our personal and business integrity in our own lives. If you lose it, you may never get it back.

A

Joe Waggoner

• To continue and to intensify the use of the breed

improvement tools now in place and those on the horizon and to elevate the positive end-product value of Hereford cattle in the beef industry.

• To focus on maintaining and enhancing the core Hereford qualities of docility, heterosis, maternal instincts, meat quality and fundamental physical soundness (feet, eyes and being environmentally adaptive).

• To expand the use of the most current and cost-effective

communication platforms to reach and to influence targeted and broader areas of market potential from millennial prospective members to end-product consumers.

• To double down to focus on youth — elevating the current significant youth programs to enhance both the pleasure and business aspects the breed offers through creative use of technology to broaden awareness and appeal, with specific emphasis on career development and Hereford industry retention.

A

Dennis White Sr.

One of the top goals I have for the Association is to ensure that participation in our Association is an asset to breeders and not so complicated that we discourage participation of the small breeders, as well as the large breeders. My second goal is to help expand the benefits of our Association to the geographical area and environment that I live and operate within. With the help of the Association, a third goal is to help breeders in the South interpret the genotype and phenotype that work best for the cattle producers in the area.

Q A

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

Breeders must provide a marketable product that is as trouble free as our competition. This is key to increasing demand for our breed in the commercial segment. Demand for Hereford bulls and females in the commercial segment has been tremendous in recent years, and we must seize this opportunity to further our breed and to regain market share that has been lost to other breeds. Producers that have previously run black bulls on black cows now want baldie calves for increased performance. Sound udders and eye set along with pigment are two additional traits that are very important to the commercial producers. The Hereford breed is still overcoming misinformation and poor breeding of years ago that tainted the breed with a reputation for eye problems. I think focusing on eyes, eye set and pigment is so important. It is critical for our future in the beef industry. Our Association has already started addressing udder problems and should continue to encourage udder improvement.

A

Nate Frederickson

As a Hereford breeder, a concern I have is the prejudices some feedyards still have against Hereford-marked cattle. Our operation prides itself in finding outlets for our customers’ feeder calves. This can be very rewarding but Hereford.org

also frustrating, especially when you have a new customer that implemented Hereford bulls into his program, loves the calves but is upset the order buyer sorted out a few of the Hereford-marked calves. As a breeder, I feel we need to continue to address this issue and to put more emphasis on building a stronger relationship within the feedyard sector.

A

Mark Largent

The biggest issue the AHA faces is market share. We need to sell more quality bulls to the beef producers of today and tomorrow. We need to better convince producers and consumers of the advantages of Herefords. Other: The best way to achieve high goals is teamwork. The best way to have dynamic teamwork is to have strong leadership that listens to and implements the best ideas and practices of its membership. Thanks to all who have supported me in this purpose-driven endeavor of serving on the AHA Board.

A

Mark St. Pierre

I think the ongoing issue for the AHA, and for breeders, is keeping and improving our place in the beef industry. We have watched our colleagues in other breeds create incredible demand for their bulls. And, we have seen that they can lose some of their market share by using single trait selection or following fads that the commercial man isn’t interested in. We have a large number of tools and more data available to us than ever before to help us improve our cattle. But we have to make sure we don’t lose what we all need in our cattle, some of the things that Herefords are known for like fertility, soundness, adaptability, feed efficiency, disposition and good carcass traits. I think the AHA is in a good place with CHB, continued research on genomics and our constantly improving EPDs. Let’s continue developing these areas and listening to the commercial cattlemen that are coming back to buy Herefords after being straight black for the last 10-20 years. What are they hoping Hereford bulls will do for them the black bulls didn’t? Let’s make sure we have what they want.

A

Joe Waggoner

Promoting and advocating the importance of producing enough of the “right kind” of beef cattle to meet consumer demand while maintaining the fundamental soundness and characteristics of legacy Hereford cattle, i.e. not diminishing breed identity. I believe the Board can help accomplish these goals by expanding the use of more advanced and cost-effective technological tools, including database development, genomic testing and selection, and communication platforms. With technology changing every day, creating opportunities in both the way we conduct our business and how we communicate the message to a larger audience is a critical element of the challenge and the solution. Through wise and strategic use of these tools, it is my respectful view the AHA can anticipate and stay ahead of the changes that will be facing our business in the years ahead for the betterment of our membership and our breed.

A

Dennis White Sr.

The AHA, along with the cattle industry, will have to continue to strive to produce cattle that will raise calves with the lowest input cost per pound. With the cost of production increasing due to land and equipment cost at a rate that we cannot control, we have to work on the cost that we can control, which is the type of cattle that can produce pounds with minimum input cost. Breeders cannot face this task alone. The AHA can provide data from the history and genetics of the Hereford breed to aid the ranchers to reach the lowest cost-per-pound production. October 2017 |

Cull Cows Marketing strategies for cull cows can increase profit. by Heather Smith Thomas

H

erd improvement is always a work in progress. Producers are constantly trying to fine-tune the genetics to create elite cows with all the desired traits for producing topquality calves, while at the same time honing and culling to remove the bottom end — the cows that fall short of expectations. Selling those can make room for better replacements, but having a plan for marketing the culls can make a difference on whether you are selling them at a profit or loss. Market timing is sometimes difficult, but pregnancy testing is always a place to start for determining which cows to sell. Then you can manage the cull group for a future target market or sell them to cut losses after calves are weaned. If you calve early and can preg test for an August sale and wean early, this strategy provides more options. Most years, cull cow prices are higher in August than later in the fall when everyone is selling open cows. Bruce Viney, risk management specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, says there are no right answers to fit

everyone, and the best decisions vary from year to year because cattle prices are unpredictable. “Even though prices tend to go up in the summer, they don’t always,” Viney says. “Knowing your cost of production is crucial. Even though you might have lots of feed, this doesn’t mean you should put it into old cows. You might be better off to keep it for calves or another use.” Keeping a group of cull cows longer to put more weight on them is not just the feed you put into them. “The feed has a value,” he says. “You could always sell it or use it for something else.” All factors need to be weighed when making these decisions. “If you have older cull cows that will bring the lower end of the price range, you might not want to spend much on feed to try to get them heavier. Sometimes you are better off to just sell them,” he explains. “On the other hand, if the open cows are good young heifers that lost calves, they are worth more and you can afford to spend a little more to get them ready to sell and put together a

load. Sometimes there can be a good market for heiferettes if they have the potential to grade better.”

When to market Everyone wants to hit the peak market, but that’s hard to do. “There is a seasonal tendency for higher prices in spring and summer, but it costs feed and overhead to hold cull cows over winter and get them into that market,” Viney says. “If you have cheap feed and the facilities to do it, you can make money, but there is always some risk in holding cows.” As a rule of thumb, however, Viney says culls should generally be sold outside of peak marketing periods. Holding off until seasonal markets strengthen again can put on cheap weight gains if the pasture is available to run those cows a little longer. If weight needs to be added to cull cows before selling, it may make money to deworm them. It also pays to treat any cow with foot rot, pinkeye, respiratory problems, etc., and not selling her until she is healthy. Cull cows and bulls often comprise 10 to 25% of the annual income on an average beef operation — affecting yearly profit or loss. Increasing cull cow weight and price by even 10% can reduce the price needed for break-even on calves. There is another option rather than holding culls to put more weight on them, if cows are not too thin to sell in midsummer, or if you are short on fall pasture due to drought and cannot afford the feed to put gains on cull cows after weaning. During those times, producers can wean calves early and to send cull cows to market ahead of the annual fall price drop. Calves off cull cows can be weaned on green pasture at a young age with no setbacks after selling cows early. The market may dictate the best time to sell cows. If cull cows are worth less and calves are worth a lot, there are times it pays to keep older cows another year if they are pregnant. Getting one or two more calves may more than offset the low price you might get for them later, and the cull market may strengthen by then. If cull cows are worth a lot, it may pay to sell older cows or any cows that give you management problems.

Culling as an opportunity Ranchers are often frustrated during times of low prices, but in the long term, a down cycle can actually be a time of opportunity — the time to lay the genetic foundations to improve the herd. Seedstock is cheaper than it was a couple of years ago, so this is a good time to buy bulls and to cull the cow herd in the right direction. Commercial producers can make important decisions that make a big difference on whether or not they can capitalize later on better markets. You can take this opportunity to position cattle genetically, shaping the cow herd not only for better reproduction and calving ease but also for genetic potential for feed efficiency. Evaluate where the herd is today and where it needs to go. This is the time to make the adjustments, not when you are paying high prices for bulls or replacements. In a price crisis, all too often ranchers talk about the negative aspects and how hard it is to pay the bills and tend to overlook the economic opportunities. Cattlemen may need to put cull cows on the market if feed costs are high, and they can’t afford to maintain open cows. But watch the markets. There are huge differences in how ranchers sell their cull cows. Timing is important — where and when and whether or not the cows are thin or in good condition. If you are in a position to put some weight on cows, you can still make money. Don’t be tied into a traditional program — weaning on a certain date or selling culls at a certain time. Just because that’s the way you’ve always done it, doesn’t mean it’s the best way. Be innovative and creative, looking at ways to best market your product. The way you cull your herd and market those culls may be one of the biggest determining factors in surviving the rough years.

One ranch’s strategy Travis Olson at Ole Farms in Alberta, Canada, says the biggest thing to focus on when culling is the economic factor. This ranch raises seedstock as well as commercial cattle. “We calve out about 1,500 cows each year and 1,000 of those are registered,” Olson says. “We are in the cattle business to make money. When making culling decisions the first thing to think about is whether the cow will make a profit in the future. The number one factor in profit and loss, in beef operations in North America, is how many calves you wean for every cow you expose to the bull. If a cow is open, she needs to be gone.” Other culling decisions revolve around management factors and whether a cow fits your program and how good or poor her calves are. continued on page 44...

Reasons to cull Grant Lastiwka, forage/livestock business specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, says a producer’s safety and time are the most important factors. “Also the main factor affecting cow profitability is that she has to calve, and we have to be able to sell that calf or the cow is a costly loss.” If she doesn’t have a calf or doesn’t have a live calf to market, she is not profitable. “Calving issues, health issues and udder issues are reasons to cull a cow. If she requires calving assistance or has feet issues, she’s a cull. I culled this year for a cow that had a calf with scours two years in a row,” he says. Culling decisions should include safety for people and ease of handling. “We often say that, but it is still an issue. Producers tend to keep that cow if she has a good calf — knowing that she can be dangerous at times or harder to handle, slowing our working time,” he says. “If a certain cow doesn’t work in your system, you don’t need her. If she stays skinny while other cows maintain body condition, she might have a weak calf, or might not rebreed,” Lastiwka explains. “Some cows just don’t work in a certain management system; maybe she doesn’t stay in a fence or hops over the electric fence. Any cow that makes more work for you should be on the cull list.” Sometimes you have to prioritize the reasons you’d cull a cow. “How her calf performs might be important. If calf performance is poor I would cull the cow, after the previous reasons have been covered, or I might decide to keep one with poor feet if she has one of the best calves. Depending on cow price to calf price ratio I think this factor will be varied, but the cows with really low calf productivity are the ones that should get less chance to stay in the herd.” For the seedstock breeder, culling decisions are even more important. Certain faults that might be tolerated for a while in a commercial herd should never be tolerated in a purebred herd, because you don’t want to pass problems on to your customers.

Ole Farms sells its cull cows directly to a packing plant. “This is one advantage we have as a larger operation. We sell our cull cows by the load and get a price on the rail,” Olson says. He has found this to be more profitable than selling through an auction where he has to pay a commission. “The auction also tends to find a way to discount your animals, and if they are going directly to the plant you don’t have this discount. It doesn’t matter if a cow has a sore hip or some other minor problem; she goes on the truck just fine and we get full retail value, whereas if she went through the auction she would be severely docked.” The cattle business is a tight market. “You have to find ways to reduce cost, and it takes away your profit if you pay a lot of money in sales commissions,” he says. Depending on the operation, some years it might pay to keep thin cows and to put more weight on them before they are sold, while other years it won’t pay to keep them longer. “Our dry cows that come home without a calf usually have good flesh, and the best time to market them is as soon as we find them, since the market tends to be higher in summer, rather than waiting until late fall,” he says. “Sorting off the cows that have lost a calf and getting them to market quickly is usually helpful. Usually we send one load of cows in mid-summer after we’ve gone through and picked them out.” After preg-testing by ultrasound, Olsen watches the market closely to decide when to ship the group. Our typical market time for those is March to April. We put some weight on those cows over winter and market them in the early spring. Most years the better price will pay for the feed we put in them, and they also gain weight very well. Many of those cows will put on 100 lb. between January and March,” he explains. Looking at a 10- or 20-year average, the market is usually higher in April than it is in November. “Everyone wants to preg test in October and November when they bring their calves in for weaning, and if they don’t want to winter those open cows, those are all sent to market. I think a person usually gets paid very well to hold them over and sell on the spring market. This is where the bigger ranches have an advantage, getting away from paying commissions by having a full load to go right to the plant,” he says. “In years past our marketing decisions were often based on what the Nilsson Brothers did. They had an auction market and at one point a slaughter facility. We used to drive by and watch what they were doing. If they had 5,000 cows sitting in their lot, we didn’t sell ours. When they were liquidating their inventory, that’s when we sold ours, because they knew more about markets than we did. That was our brilliant marketing scheme — copying someone smarter than us.”

Chill Factor

Preparing your cattle for colder temperatures can save money and ensure good herd health. by Heather Smith Thomas

s fall changes into winter and temperatures continue to drop, producers must remember that cattle need a chance to adjust to seasonal changes. Cattle grow longer, thicker hair for cooler temperatures, and along with a layer of fat under their hides, they have good insulation to reduce heat loss from the body and to help minimize cold stress. Changing temperatures in the fall and shorter days and nights stimulate appetite, growth of winter hair and other physiological changes. All these changes contribute to an increase in heat production so the animal can withstand winter temperatures. Weather is always a factor in cattle health. Stressed animals are more vulnerable to stress-related illnesses, so cattle need more care during cold or wet weather. Good management to prepare cattle for winter and to minimize weather stress can save money and reduce the incidence of illness or the loss of animals. Cold weather brings additional challenges if it is accompanied by wind or wet weather. Charles Stoltenow, North Dakota State University Extension veterinarian, says it’s important to provide windbreaks and bedding in those conditions. “It all comes down to maintaining body heat, and nothing saps this out of the animal faster than wet and wind,” Stoltenow says. Once the hair gets wet and lies down flat rather than standing up fluffy with air spaces between the hairs, it loses its insulating quality, and it’s very hard for the animal to keep warm. “Many cattle died in the Atlas storm [when a lot of heavy, wet snow got dumped in South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming in early October, 2013],” Stoltenow says. “Some got buried in drifts, but many died simply because they got wet, and then the weather turned cold. They could not keep themselves warm enough, even though the temperatures were not bitterly cold.” If producers have wet conditions during winter, they also need to think about providing enough bedding to enable cattle to have a dry place to lie down so the cattle are not losing as much body heat. “Cattle are stressed if they are standing hunched up,” he explains. “By contrast, if you have bedding for those cattle and a place to lie down, they are more comfortable, and tend to stay healthier.”

Young calves Cold stress in calves has more lethal consequences than in cows, says John Hall, University of Idaho Extension beef cattle specialist. “Newborn calves are most at risk, but calves less than two weeks of age and sick calves may also be at risk in severely cold weather,” he says. Ranchers who calve in January and February are usually prepared for cold stress, but it can also affect calves born during late winter storms or an early spring downpour of rain. Russ Daly, South Dakota State University Extension veterinarian and associate professor, says newborn calves can handle fairly cold temperatures once they are dry and have the insulating effect of a dry hair coat. Colostrum is also important — after a calf has suckled, it has the energy to keep warm. “A calf is born with less than a day’s worth of energy in the form of brown fat to metabolize for body heat,” Daly says. “If the calf doesn’t get colostrum, once that brown fat is gone there is no energy available to maintain or regulate body heat. Colostrum is

high in fat, with two to three times more fat than regular milk. This really makes a difference in getting the calf up and going.” A newborn calf that has had a full feeding of colostrum can stay warmer in cold weather. Hall explains the lower critical temperature (LCT) is less for calves than cows, especially if the animals are wet. “The LCT for calves is close to 60 degrees. With a little rain or snow, the LCT moves closer to 70 degrees. As little as 1⁄10th inch of rain on the day the calf is born can increase calf losses by 2 to 4%,” Hall says. Daly says young calves dry off quickly on a dry day if the cow cleans them immediately after birth. “Sometimes in cold weather you have to help with that process,” Daly explains. “It’s crucial to have bedding for baby calves. There’s not much body mass in a small calf; these babies chill quicker than a large animal. Bedding helps insulate the calf, making a separation between the calf and frozen ground, snow, cold concrete, etc. This is important in helping calves stay warm.” Commercial calf blankets can increase survivability in young calves during extremely cold weather. Hall says, “Putting blankets on weak or chilled calves for a few days while they are in the barn may help calf survival.” Frostbite can be an issue in calves born during cold weather. Extremities suffer first. “Most people who calve early calve inside, but occasionally a calf freezes its ears,” says Daly. “After the calf is born and dry there is much less risk for frostbite, unless a calf is suffering from a debilitating condition such as

scours and dehydration,” says Daly. In that situation, there is less blood flow to extremities. If the newborn has frozen ears, tail or feet, care should be taken to not damage the tissues when trying to warm the calf. “If you suspect frostbite, remove the calf from cold conditions but don’t warm the ears or feet too quickly,” Daly says. “Use warm water and towels, not hot water, and don’t rub the area too much or you may further damage the tissue.”

Older calves Larger calves have more blood flow to extremities and are more adept at getting out of the wind. “If shelters are used, they should be periodically moved to clean locations, with clean bedding,” Daly explains. As calves get older, windbreaks and temporary shelter can be helpful, along with good nutrition. If they have adequate nutrition and are in good body condition they have more insulation against the cold and enough energy to keep warm. continued on page 50...

“Thin cows produce weaker calves, with reduced chance of survival,” Hall says. “Research from Colorado State University showed that first-calf heifers in body condition score 4 or less have reduced antibody levels in their colostrum, and their calves are more likely to become sick.” An increase in windchill or wet weather can dramatically increase cold stress on cows. Hall says research from Kansas and Iowa indicates maintenance energy requirements of a cow increase by 1% for each degree below her LCT. For wet cows the rule of thumb is 2% for each degree below LCT. For cows with wet coats, windchill temperature may easily be 20 to 30% below LCT. Periods with high winds, snow or rain will dramatically increase energy requirements. Daly says, “We must be sure we’re providing the additional feed they need.” For animals with a functional rumen — older calves and adult cattle — having adequate protein to utilize the energy is important. Microbes in the rumen break down the roughage in forage into useable energy, but they need protein to do this. During a cold winter, stockmen can usually help cattle maintain themselves, but prolonged cold makes it challenging to feed calves enough for weight gain. “For mature animals, the best way to help them respond to cold stress is to feed enough energy and protein — especially as cows get into later gestation — to make sure the fetus isn’t shortchanged,” Daly explains. If any animal Research from Kansas and Iowa indicate maintenance energy requirements of a cow increase by 1% for each is putting all its resources into keeping degree below her lower critical temperature. warm, something will be shortchanged. “We generally focus on protein, but energy for calves is crucial,” Hall says during normal January and February weather in Daly says. “Weaning-age calves need a high-energy diet. People Idaho, cows need an additional 3 to 4 lb. of hay or 2 to 2.5 here on the northern plains also recognize that these animals will lb. of grain per day. “Generally, you can just feed more hay to increase their feed intake in response to the cold.” compensate for weather stress, but hay that is low in protein will need supplemented with 1 to 2 lb. of protein.

Cows should be monitored for teat damage and rates the next breeding season. possible scabbing and scarring.

Scrotal frostbite in bulls Cold weather and/or windchill can cause testicle damage and semen deterioration, but wind is the greatest danger. George Perry, professor and beef reproduction specialist, South Dakota State University, says frostbite can affect sperm production. “Spermatogenesis in a bull is 61 days. Anything that affects sperm production will take 61 days to clear the system, with normal cells and healthy sperm after the bull recovers,” he explains. If damage was severe it may take several months before the bull is fully recovered, and in some cases he may be permanently infertile. This possibility is a good reason to have breeding soundness exams performed each year before bulls are turned out. Just because a bull was fine last year doesn’t mean he will be fertile this year. “There’s a difference between a subfertile and an infertile bull,” he explains. “The infertile ones you realize there’s a problem because you get no calves. A subfertile bull costs you money because you think he’s doing the job. You get a few calves — but not nearly as many as there should be.” If damage is severe enough, the bull will be permanently infertile. “If something happens to the blood flow to the testes, this can impair function. This would be similar to severe freezing on a human finger or any other extremity,” Perry says. “After suffering frostbite, if the bull doesn’t have normal sperm at the time he’s checked, you might give him another 60 days and check him again.”

Wintering Replacements

Properly managing replacement heifers can set them up to be successful in the cow herd. by Heather Smith Thomas

G

ood management of heifers — from weaning through first pregnancy, especially during winter — can make a difference in their success as cows. Al Fenton, Fenton Herefords at Irma, Alberta, has been raising Herefords a long time. His parents started the ranch in 1946, and over the years, he has raised thousands of replacement heifers and found good ways to develop them for the environment.

Wintering weaned heifers “When we wean in the fall, we already have our replacement selections figured out,” Fenton says. “We’ve written down the heifers out of the cows we like, and that we feel have the best advantages to become fault-free cows.” Fenton utilizes low-stress fenceline weaning in a 10-acre area. “If you have a long enough fence, they settle in quicker and better,” he explains. “They aren’t walking as much. There’s room for pairs to come together at the fence when they want to.” Calves take behavioral clues from their mothers or other adult cattle around them. If the cows stay calm, the calves don’t spook and run as readily when they see people. “Another thing that helps at weaning is to feed the cows and calves whatever you’ll be feeding the heifers, and feed that ration for a week before weaning,” Fenton suggests. “Then the calves start eating that feed and know what it is, and their gut adjusts to it. This makes a better transition than if they have to go through

an abrupt change of feed. Once you shut the milk off, if they are already accustomed to that feed, it makes a difference.” If a producer has the space to feed in bunks with plenty of room and not a lot of competition, all the heifers can be together. If weaning in a smaller area where there is more competition, Fenton suggests dividing them into groups according to weight. “We are getting set up here to winter on standing corn,” he says. “We already winter our pregnant heifers that way, and they do very well, with no competition for feed. We have native grass pastures for them in the spring. Our yearling replacement heifers go out on those pastures early, to get them out of the corrals. We process them before they go, so they have all their shots. If they are on native grass for a certain length of time before we spread them out in breeding pastures with bulls, they don’t seem to have the weight loss like they would if they were just coming out of the feed yards for breeding.” They may have a little weight loss because of the difference in the nutrition, but it is temporary. “I think they are ready to go when we are sorting them for breeding; there is not a lot of change involved, and the results are better,” he says.

Target weight Bart Lardner, Western Beef Development Center research scientist and University of Saskatchewan animal and poultry science professor, says the ideas about raising replacement heifers are Hereford.org


varied. “Traditional recommendation for the past 40 years, has been to have them reach 65% of their eventual mature body weight by the time you breed them,” he says. This is the reason why many ranchers confine their weaned heifers in a feedlot-type situation and push them to gain more than they would on winter pastures. “Some ranchers keep more heifers than they need and then make selections the next spring regarding which ones to breed,” Lardner says. Increase in cost of fossil fuel, feedstuffs and capital investment makes developing heifers appear less expensive. “Today we have cattle that can do well without being pushed,” Lardner says.

“There has been research in this area, since the concern has been that puberty would be delayed if heifers were raised with a lower rate of gain and lower percent of mature body rate at breeding. Some of the earlier work was all about insuring they would reach puberty and breed on time, but there’s also been some work done to see if there was an alternative, such as developing them to less than 65% mature body rate. Studies were done looking at developing heifers to 60% or maybe even just 55% of mature weight as the lower end.” Lardner says success with this idea depends on genetics — British breeds might be better fit for the lower percent than some of the Continental breeds. “We’ve looked at the possibility there might not be a negative effect on reproductive efficiency, not just as a first-calving 2-year-old but also for the life span of that cow in the herd,” he says. Some ranchers have developed cattle that fit their ranch environment and thrive on the grazing resources their ranch provides without expensive inputs during the development period — the 200 days from October or November until breeding in June or whenever breeding starts. “Recent work at the research center in Miles City, Mont., evaluated developing heifers to lower weight, studying the impacts on reproduction and economics,” Lardner says. Rick Funston, beef cattle reproductive physiologist at West Central Research and Extension Center at North Platte, Neb., evaluated heifers developed on winter range and crop residues. Lardner worked with Funston to examine development systems in the Midwest where ranch environments may not provide high energy pastures. In Montana and Nebraska, heifers are often developed on rangeland. “We put together a development program here in Saskatchewan, looking at two rates of gain for developing heifers — moderate versus high, and an extensive grazing program versus a drylot feeding program,” Lardner says. They called these groups moderate gain in extensive grazing, high gain in extensive grazing, moderate gain in drylot and high gain in drylot. “We were trying to expose replacement heifers to a system they’d be managed in for longevity in an extensive system where they have to go find the feed versus having it brought to them in a bunk or pen,” Lardner says. “They have to go out and graze, winter well, cycle during breeding season and give the producer a calf.” Grazing through winter serves a heifer well for the rest of her life; she will ambitiously graze instead of waiting around to be fed or waiting for a tractor to start. Most ranchers want heifers that can utilize crop residues, stockpiled winter range, standing corn or whatever the ranch can grow cheaply for winter feed. “During the development program that first winter, before breeding, we had some of heifers on a typical high-roughage diet — a grass/legume hay — and bale grazing rather than confined,” Lardner says. They receive a little cereal grain as supplement, since they were being grown in a winter environment and needed a little extra energy, but the largest part of their diet was good continued on page 56...

quality hay. The moderate-gain group gained about 1.2 lb. per day. The high-gain group averaged a little over 1.5 lb. per day. Initially, at weaning, they were all about 565 lb. The heifers with moderate gains came out at about 780 lb., and the high gain group weighed about 870 lb. just before breeding. “We learned that if you go for the lower percent of mature body weight, such as 55% versus 65%, you need to make sure the breeding pasture has good quality forage,” Lardner says. “The lighterweight heifers that had not yet reached puberty coming out of winter did reach puberty during breeding season, started cycling, and did become pregnant. So if pasture quality is adequate, they do catch up.” He recommends weighing cattle to know the actual average mature body weight. “That first year, the moderate-gain heifers had compensatory gain during breeding season,” he says. “Those heifers only gained about 1.2 lb. When heifers are pregnant, it is important they be in adequate body condition before calving. during winter but ramped up and gained about 2 lb. a day during breeding season and caught up.

Shelter helps It’s important for heifers to get out of the wind — they can handle a lot of cold if it’s not windy. If there are trees and brush areas, they will leave those areas to go out and graze, go to water, and then go back to the sheltered area to be out of the wind. “If you use man-made windbreaks, spread them out so cattle can stay in smaller groups,” says Al Fenton, Fenton Herefords at Irma, Alta. “If they have to get out of the wind, smaller groups will allow them to not be bothering one another as much. They have lots of area to lie down and chew their cud and process their food properly.” A goal of winter management is to make sure the cattle can do what they need to do comfortably.

Forty Things I’ve Learned in 40 Years

Celebrating our 106th Year

I recently turned the big 4-0. It wasn’t nearly as traumatic as I had anticipated it being — 40 is the new 20, or something like that, right? As I reflect on these first four decades, I see that my priorities and views on the world have changed greatly from 20 years ago. Thank goodness. In honor of this milestone, 40 things I’ve learned in 40 years:

October 2017 Oldest continuous Polled Hereford Herd in America

1) Life isn’t always going to turn out as I had planned.

2) And life goes on.

3) Sometimes my greatest blessings have come from those twists and turns I never saw coming.

5) Speaking of jobs: I’ve learned not to put my entire identity into my career. There’s more to me than just how I make my living. 6) Striving to be a dependable friend, caring mom, devoted wife and supportive daughter and granddaughter will be much more fruitful.

7) Family always comes first. Always.

8) When my grandma calls, no matter what I’m doing, I answer that call.

9) When my dad gives advice and shares a story from his days of showing cattle across the country, I listen, I really listen. It could be the last time I hear that story.

4) Being “Mom” will be the most incredible, and challenging, job of my life.

10) Staying in my comfort zone is, well, comfortable. But I’ll never grow by staying in the safe zone. Sometimes I’ve got to scare myself a little.

11) When I commit, I must give it my all.

12) No matter how much I hate “losing,” sometimes my greatest lessons in humility come in the losses. 13) I will always hate losing.

McDonald Polled Herefords

14) I’ve learned I really shouldn’t worry so much about what people think of me.

15) And if we could see inside the minds of others, we would also realize just how rarely they actually do think about us. 16) Comparison is the thief of joy.

17) If I could truly see the struggles of those around me, I wouldn’t worry so much about my own.

18) It’s OK to look back on my college years as some of the best years of my life. 19) It’s OK to be thankful social media didn’t develop until many years after I graduated from college, especially during those Thursday nights at the Wormy Dog. 20) I will simultaneously miss and roll my eyes over the cattle-show fashion trend that was Rockies.

21) We all have 24 hours in a day. But we don’t know how many days we have. Make the most of each day.

22) There’s a difference between busy and productive. Learn the difference. 23) Don’t compare my “start” to someone’s “middle.” Whether that’s in the showring, in business or in the way that top fits around the middle. 24) Take it easy on yourself. We’re all doing the best we can, and sometimes that’s all we can do. 25) Learn to say “no.” A “yes” to one project means a “no” to something else — time for a different project or, more importantly, time with my family. 26) Drink that water. 27) Sometimes people are shy, not stuck up. Thankfully, I learned this one about 15 years ago, or I would have never given my husband a chance on our first date.

29) I am never “too good” for any job. If something needs to be done, do it. 30) It’s also OK to ask questions if I’m unsure how to do something right.

31) My husband will always do things that will annoy me.

32) I’ll always do things that will annoy him. The key is to extend grace and to pick up those shoes he leaves in the hallway every day. It’s just easier. 33) A thank-you note is always appropriate. 34) Sometimes, the meanest people simply need kindness. 35) I will always want to go into “Momma Bear” mode when anyone picks on my kids. (But see rule No. 34.) 36) Take photos. Lots of them. You’ll never regret it. 37) I can’t control what happens to me, but I can choose how I respond to what happens to me. 38) It’s OK to be vulnerable. It’s OK to let folks know I’m not perfect because that’s how true relationships and connections are built. 39) No matter what happens in life, God is still God. God is still good. Thanks goes to my dear friend, Holly, for sharing that wisdom with me. 40) Life is beautiful, downright tough, absolutely rewarding and absolutely gut-wrenching. But every day we are alive is another chance to make a difference. So live it with all you’ve got. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill. She can be reached at christy@ceeleecommunications.com.

28) It’s much more rewarding to spend money on experiences rather than things.

(P43569494)

In 1958, Herefords first walked our pastures, and it was a very good year. They replaced a dairy and hog operation. Herefords have been a blessing to our family and a great breed to work with. We have always strived to produce a herd with good udders, sound feet and legs, and style without losing volume or thickness. We have three new herd bulls (pictured) to compliment and use on our Pure Country (P43091171), Jace (43297996) and Canadian bred females.

(P43569494) Calves on the Ground

Over the decades, we have met many families and made many new friends. This spring, we had one of the best compliments that we have ever received. We delivered a new friend his bulls and when we unloaded them, he said, “Your bulls only look expensive.” If you have not seen our herd, give us a call any time. Bulls, steers, heifers and bred females for sale.

Thanks, Alton, Marie and Family
