Breed Focus

The Rooster

by Jack Ward

Hereford youth exemplify a good work ethic and a respect for strong opinions. I was attending a meeting recently, and when I left the meeting place I read a sign that said 2017 is the Year of the Rooster. This got my attention, and I was unaware that the rooster is 10th in a 12-year cycle of animals in the Chinese zodiac. I then Googled the importance of the rooster and found this definition: Roosters are considered to be in charge of time, as in crowing to greet the day. In addition, the rooster respects those with strong opinions and a good work ethic. Each year, the September issue of the Hereford World highlights the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and the successes of our junior membership at this event. I think this year’s animal, the rooster, describes these junior members well. An event like the JNHE takes a lot of planning by a big group including American Hereford Association (AHA) staff, state sponsors and representatives, the AHA Board of Directors, junior advisors and the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors. I commend everyone involved, and I thank them for their hard work. But for me, it’s seeing juniors in action that makes this all worthwhile.

staff and advisors to organize the day, to make sure a schedule was in place for each of the events and to ensure each of us knew our role in those events. The rooster also has a good work ethic and respect for those with strong opinions, and this set of Hereford youth has both. It is just incredible to walk through the barns and to see families working together, not only feeding and washing cattle but preparing meals for states and organizing practices for contests throughout the week. It didn’t matter the age; I saw kids in the hallways of the show facility and in the parking lots practicing speeches, skits and quiz bowl material or watching showmanship presentations. It is also clear these kids have strong opinions, and it’s fun to see how all of them share their opinions in a respectful and meaningful way. At the end of the day, they merge ideas and opinions to create a fantastic end product. This year my wife, Mary Ann, and I watched our youngest son participate in his last national junior show. For us, we can remember the long hot days and the work that goes into not just preparing a heifer for the show but also the work that goes into participating in contests. This exercise taught our kids a lot about life because they had to meet deadlines, be prompt and work hard to accomplish a goal. All these things are important to build our kids into good, productive adults. I want to thank everyone who makes events like these possible. Whether it is the county or state fair, a leadership activity or the JNHE, it takes a lot of resources, but at the end of the day, it is rewarding to see our kids grow through such important activities. From now on, I will always remember the rooster as the symbol of those involved in the livestock industry because we are up early, have strong opinions and a great work ethic. Hereford.org

Performance Matters

Stahly NRSP Results Announced

by Shane Bedwell

NRSP results from 2016-born calves at Stahley Ranch show improved quality grade. Provided are the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) results from 2016-born calves at Stahly Ranch in Cavour, S.D. Mike and Judy Stahly, along with their family, have been a part of the NRSP since 1999. Each year, Mike selects three sires to use in his program. One of these sires will be used at Olsen’s so the data are linked and comparisons can be accurately made between young and proven sires. Because of the American Hereford Association’s (AHA) partnerships with various test herds like Stahly’s, breeders can make better-informed decisions relative to traits of interest. Printed in Table 1 are the expected progeny differences (EPDs) for sires used, along with the phenotypes of progeny evaluated in the test. This data, along with the rest of the phenotypes, will be used in the PanAmerica Cattle Evaluation (PACE), although birth and weaning data have already been added to profiles of the sires, found in Table 2. The carcass data will be added to the system and will be reflected in the genetic evaluation released Sept. 15, 2017. In most cases the phenotypic data aligned very well with the EPDs of

sires but not perfectly, which is not out of line. It is important to remember that EPDs are the best indicators of potential performance, but it is only when progeny data are added that we begin to realize the genetic potential, particularly of young sires. In summary, the 33 cattle evaluated on test graded 87% Choice, which again is an improvement from a year ago. Also, these cattle had an average yield grade of 3.8, which is a little past optimum but falls within industry standards, especially considering the kill weight of the cattle. The AHA Annual Meeting and Conference, Oct. 27-29, in Kansas City, Mo., is right around the corner, and I encourage all Hereford breeders and enthusiasts to attend this year’s educational seminars. See Page 14 for more information. We are going to dedicate Friday morning to breed improvement updates, which will specifically include the genetic evaluation changes and improvements that have been made. I look forward to seeing all of you this year in Kansas City.

“What’s New?” is a column designed to keep you in-the-know about Hereford happenings. You can also sign up for Hereford eNews, a weekly electronic newsletter from the American Hereford Association (AHA). Send an e-mail to eNews@hereford.org to subscribe. Archived issues are posted at Hereford.org.

Plan to attend Annual Meeting Mark your calendar for the 2017 American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 27-29, at The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center, 1 E. Pershing Rd., Kansas City, MO 64108. This year’s event boasts an extended educational forum, an expanded trade show and a growing awards reception, offering more education, networking and excitement than ever. The educational forum on Friday, Oct. 27, will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will host eight sessions to cover a variety of topics including breed improvement updates, a Certified Hereford Beef (CHB®) foodservice and retail panel, brand development and marketing tips, legislative updates, estate

planning advice, and Herefordinfluenced feeder-calf marketing information. Attendance to the educational sessions and trade show is free for AHA members and guests. This is a can’t-miss opportunity for Hereford breeders and enthusiasts to network and to gain more industry knowledge. See Page 14 for more information. Following the educational seminars will be the Hereford Honorees Reception to recognize Hereford Hall of Fame and Hall of Merit recipients as well as scholarship winners. The Hereford Honorees Reception will take place at The Gallery in downtown Kansas City at 61 E 14th Street, Kansas City, MO 64105. Shuttles will be provided to transport attendees to and from The Westin Kansas City and The Gallery.

Loschke promoted to education and information services coordinator Laura Loschke, American Hereford Association (AHA) assistant records supervisor, will continue her work with the AHA team as the new education and information services coordinator. “We are excited to have Laura assume this role at AHA as she brings with her a tremendous amount of knowledge of the inner workings of the customer service department and how some of our key programs work,” says AHA records department director Stacy Sanders. “Laura’s background at the AHA will allow her to get up to speed quickly in AHA’s efforts to develop projects and materials to help educate members and other staff on many of these items.” Loschke will serve in her current capacity while also taking on the education and information services coordinator role. She will develop comprehensive educational platforms, assist Hereford breeders in understanding online data submission and promote best practices for Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR®) participation. “I am very excited for this new opportunity and am strongly committed to working with the AHA membership to expand educational needs in many areas,” Loschke said. “I look forward to promoting the Hereford breed and connecting with more members. Together we will make a difference, and I am ready to get started.” Loschke began her new role Aug. 8.

CHB’s 2017 resolution is to increase producer involvement by allowing the producers to take ownership of the brand created to help market Hereford cattle and to create more demand and value for the breed. As producers, consumers and brand ambassadors of the CHB program, it is important to ask for and to talk about the product at restaurants and grocery stores to create additional demand for the CHB brand. This is CHB’s challenge: Every time a Hereford breeder is in a restaurant or grocery store, simply ask if CHB is served or sold. Consistent requests for the product create an opportunity to begin a conversation about the program and how retailers and foodservice providers can get the product to fill customer demands. Hereford breeders are not only a producer but a consumer as well and today’s market is driven by consumer demands. With 7,000 strong consumer voices across the United States, Hereford breeders can Demand the Brand. Informational handouts to take to restaurants and grocery stores can be found at Hereford.org/commercial/ feeder-cattle/certified-hereford-beef and then clicking on “Demand the Brand.”

Join the HRF Founders Society The Hereford Research Foundation (HRF) creates a culture for the advancement of the Hereford breed through genetic research and was developed to support breed improvement projects outside the scope of the AHA budget. The Founders Society’s contributions will complement the HRF’s mission. These contributions will directly enhance research efforts and are tax deductible through HYFA’s 501(c)3. Founders Society membership dues are $3,000 per year or $5,000 per two years. To join the society, contact AHA Director of Breed Improvement Shane Bedwell at sbedwell@hereford.org or 816-842-3757.

Customer Service Tips and Tricks

Fall 2017 calf registration reminders

Register calves with MyHerd.org and save money

As you register fall calves, take a second look at the registration form before sending it to the records department for entry. When calf registration forms are missing required information or directions are not followed, the registration will be put on hold until the correct data are provided by the breeder. Please review your calf registration form for the following:

Members can register animals through MyHerd for a discounted electronic rate. See Table 1 below for the rates. Members can also transfer animals electronically to their customers, stay up-to-date with Whole Herd TPR requirements with custom to-do lists, and view and pay account balances online. Email your AHA member number to MyHerd@hereford.org to sign up for a free account.

• Provide full dam and sire

registration numbers. Only Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) participants, not pedigree breeders, are allowed to use a herd ID (identification number) in place of a registration number.

• Assign a herd ID to each

calf, and remember herd IDs cannot be duplicated within your herd. A herd ID isn’t your American Hereford Association (AHA) member number; it’s a maximum of six numbers and/ or letters used to identify an animal within your herd.

• Report an embryo recovery

date for embryo transfer (ET) calves. ET certificates are no longer required.

• Remember a registered name

cannot be more than 30 spaces long and may only include numbers and letters. Names cannot be duplicated. Make a calf name unique by adding a prefix or a tattoo number to the end of the name.

• The name for an unregistered animal must be its combined tattoo. A registered name can be added when the animal is updated to registered status.

Youth Movement

Heart of a Champion

by Steven Green

Nearly two years ago, preparation for summer 2017 began. Strategies were arranged and breeding decisions were made. Producer across America were planning to have their best calf crop yet. Nine months later dreams came to fruition, and the conversations were sparked. Juniors across the country began the hunt for their next show heifer and future cow. Elite calves began to sort themselves from the rest, bred-and-owned projects were chosen and calves were purchased. As cattle arrived at show barns, dreams were blooming, and the hard work began. For more than 900 exhibitors, daily routine and attention to detail paved the way for one event — the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE).

| September 2017

This year’s JNHE was anticipated to be the greatest in Hereford history. Sure enough, our National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members did not disappoint — more than 1,300 head of Hereford cattle arrived in Louisville, Ky. In our opening ceremonies, Warren Beeler said, “The most valuable agricultural product isn’t plants or animals, it’s people.” JNHE is an exhibition of Hereford cattle from across the country, but success in the showring is only a fraction of what we hope to achieve. Our juniors take hold of their future and lay a blueprint for success, competing in numerous contests and escaping their comfort zone. Between the hard work of managing a show string and participating in events, juniors have the opportunity to network. Conversations begin, thoughts are shared and friendships are made. Speaking and onnecting with youth is my favorite part of the JNHE. The days began to pass and show days came knocking. With the selection of champions comes disappointment for those who were not awarded. Through the gloom, a quote from Rocky Balboa is appropriate, “Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.” Nothing worth having in life comes easy, including success. Perseverance is in the heart of every champion. Whether you are running for the NJHA board of directors or participating in a contest, losing hurts. How you handle the adversity will define who you are. I ran for the NJHA board twice and came back the second time stronger, more confident and more prepared for a leadership position. For those of you who were not happy with your placing in contests and the showring, stand tall and begin preparing for tomorrow with a champion’s mentality.

Faces of Leadership Conference Two weeks past the JNHE, 90 juniors from across the country gathered in Kansas City, Mo., for the Faces of Leadership Conference. We began our time together with Amberley Snyder, who guided us through the peaks and valleys of her life which included becoming paralyzed from the waist down from a car accident. With the dream of riding horses again, she took hold of the one thing she could control — her attitude. Amberley is now competitively riding again and is better than ever. Later we took a tour of the American Hereford Association headquarters and headed to Kansas State University (K-State) for a look at its beef unit and a leadership training course. Our youth got a hands-on experience with K-State staff before heading to Jensen Bros. in Courtland, Kan. A sincere thank you goes out to the Jensen family for their gracious hospitality. We concluded our conference’s final day starting at BioZyme Inc. Bob and Lisa Norton are immensely supportive of the livestock industry youth. BioZyme staff let us into their feed supplement mill and headquarters to teach youth about logistics, product development, sales and delivery. Lastly, Faces of Leadership ended with a leadership training session led by Heather Schultz. NJHA youth learned different strategies from team building activities to take back to organizations which they are involved in. As summer comes to a close, I ask everyone to take a second to reflect on what the NJHA has provided for you. I cannot say enough for the influence the Hereford family has had on my life. Eight years ago I purchased my first Hereford heifer. Who knew one handshake would lead to this journey. Hereford.org

Foundation’s Focus Foundation 1 Club Makes a Difference by Amy Cowan

Think of the difference giving back 1% of your sale proceeds could make over time? With the heart of fall production sale season upon us, the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) is thrilled to announce the debut of the Foundation 1 Club, which focuses on the future of Hereford youth. Tim and Kara Coleman, Sierra Ranches, Modesto, Calif., are partnering with HYFA and are the founding members of the Foundation 1 Club, which will debut at their Western Treasures Vol. 1 Sale, Monday, Oct. 9, at 1 p.m. Taking place on Columbus Day, the inaugural Sierra Ranches production sale will feature 45 lots of bred heifers, proven donors, show heifer prospects, pairs, pregnancies and embryos and 45 service-age sires. From the gross of their production sale, the Coleman family has generously committed to donating 1% to future HYFA programs and Hereford youth. Tim and Kara grew up showing livestock. They have always been passionate about junior programs and are raising their children, Tyler and Kathryn, up through the ranks of the National Junior Hereford Association and the National Junior Angus Association. This focus on youth activities led them to think about what Sierra Ranches could do to help foster the junior

Hereford program and to support it in the future.

The 1% concept Last spring, Tim came up with the 1% concept, and the Foundation 1 Club emerged. The next generation is going to reap huge rewards from this unique idea. Tim and Kara encourage and invite all Hereford breeders to get on board and to do the same when it comes to planning future sales. Whether it is an online sale, a bull sale or a production sale, giving back a percentage will make a huge difference over time. Through HYFA, Hereford youth have the opportunity to gain invaluable leadership skills that enable them to become selfmotivated and knowledgeable leaders in today’s world. HYFA is fortunate to have such a gracious

Join the Foundation 1 Club The Foundation 1 Club is a group of breeders who donate 1% of their sale gross to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America to benefit leadership, scholarship and educational experiences for Hereford youth. To become a member of the Foundation 1 Club, contact Amy Cowan at 816-218-2256 or acowan@hereford.org or visit herefordyouthfoundation.org.

network of donors, and The Foundation 1 Club sets the stage for amazing growth for leadership and educational programs. I can’t thank Sierra Ranches and the Coleman family enough for having the foresight to be the inaugural members of this prestigious club and committing 1% of their Western Treasure Sale proceeds to HYFA. Our future is in good hands thanks to donors like Sierra Ranches. Through participation in programs like the Foundation 1 Club, Hereford breeders can work together toward a meaningful goal — to help HYFA capitalize on its mission of encouraging, recognizing and rewarding the development of life skills and values in Hereford youth. It is Tim and Kara’s hope that the Foundation 1 Club will broaden the HYFA’s donor base, and they encourage others with the same passion as they have to commit to similar gifts. There is no check too big or too small. These gifts, over time, will add up. As the Foundation 1 Club grows, so will the rewards for Hereford youth.

Hereford Women Driven by History, Leadership and Passion by Erin Lockhart

Each year as we celebrate the completion of another Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), we are reminded we will have three great ladies retiring from our board at the National Hereford Women (NHW) Annual Meeting in October during the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo. The NHW board of directors has been driven by history, leadership and passion for the Hereford breed. The NHW would like to thank Suzanne Matheny, Michelle Beran and Maddee Moore for their years of service to the organization. Suzanne is a fourth-generation Hereford breeder from Mays Lick, Ky. She is no stranger to serving the Hereford breed as she has served as the chairman of the junior board and was National Polled Hereford Queen. Suzanne and her husband, Andrew, own and operate Matheny Herefords. Their two children,

NHW members work hard to support Hereford youth and promote the Hereford breed. Pictured are NHW board members at JNHE.

Austin and Taylor Belle, work alongside them at home and in the showring. Austin and Taylor Belle are following in their mother’s footsteps as each is currently serving on the National Junior Hereford Association board and Taylor Belle served as the 2015-16 National Hereford Queen. Michelle and her husband, Craig, own and operate B&D Herefords in Claflin, Kan. They have raised two children, Bridget and John, on their Hereford operation. Michelle has served in many capacities while on the board. Spending three years as the secretary and parliamentarian, she possesses a skill set and attention to detail that have benefited all involved. In the last year, she has served the queen committee with passion and dedication for the program. Outside the NHW, Michelle is a 4-H youth development agent for the Midway District. Her passion for agriculture, Hereford cattle and youth will continue to be seen throughout her professional career. Retiring from the northwest region is Maddee Moore of Nampa, Idaho. Maddee served as the 2015-16 NHW president. She was dedicated to improving communications with the Hereford Youth Foundation of America and

fundraising associated with various scholarships including the National Organization of Pollettes. This last year, she served as the ex officio, working closely with NHW President Jill Folkman. She also has been involved in creating the new NHW website, which is soon to launch. Thank you, Suzanne, Michelle and Maddee for everything you have done over the years. You all will be truly missed, and you have left some big shoes to fill. Make sure when you see the ladies in the barn or out and about, to thank them for all their hard work on the board and with Hereford youth. As we look to the next class of board members to join the NHW, we are excited to have great guidance from incoming president Rhonda Eck and Jill Folkman, who will be serving as ex officio. Under their leadership, numerous projects and fundraising efforts and much excitement are sure to continue.

Join NHW Dues can be paid at any point throughout the year. A membership form can be found on the website or emailed to you. Please contact nationalherefordwomen@gmail. com with questions. Dues and membership forms can be sent to Karen Smith at P.O. Box 1225, Gatesville, TX 76528. Hereford.org

Building Leaders in the Heartland The Jensen family welcomed Faces of Leadership participants to Jensen Bros., Courtland, Kan.

National Junior Hereford Association members gather in Kansas City, Mo., for the annual Faces of Leadership Conference. by Paige Jones

T

he National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) was at home 2017 Conference in the heartland, hosting 89 NJHA members in its hometown of Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 1-4, for the eighth-annual Faces of Leadership Conference. NJHA members ages 14 to 21 from 20 states arrived in Kansas City looking to gain leadership and communication skills, but what they left with was much more. Whether it was the nationally known speakers that moved them, the workshops that motivated them or the friends that they met along the way, each participant left with more goals, knowledge and a network of people to support him or her.

A change in perspective The event kicked off Tuesday afternoon with an opportunity for NJHA members to get to know one another through icebreaker activities led by the NJHA board of directors. “This conference is designed to get you out of your comfort zone,” says NJHA Board Chairman

Steven Green, Munfordville, Ky. “See how much you can learn about Hereford cattle and more importantly, about yourself.” The Faces of Leadership Conference serves as an opportunity to network with other individuals interested in the Hereford cattle industry as well as leadership and industry professionals. Sydney Dvorak of Pickstown, S.D., is a Faces of Leadership veteran attending her third Faces of Leadership Conference. As an experienced attendee, her perspective has changed since her first conference. “I try to continue to push myself out of my comfort zone and get out and meet new people, but I try to help others as well,” Dvorak says. “I like to encourage others, especially first year kids, to meet new people and try new things so they can get as much as they can out of this conference.”

Home in the heartland The conference’s first speaker traveled to Kansas City from Utah to teach a lesson in perseverance Hereford.org


AHA Executive Vice President Jack Ward described the history of the AHA building for the NJHA juniors.

Amberley Snyder, professional barrel racer, motivated the group by sharing the hills and valleys of her life.

and attitude. Amberley Snyder shared her story of tragedy to triumph from being paralyzed from a car accident to becoming a professional barrel racer, breakaway roper and motivational speaker. “Get back on the horse,” Amberley’s motto echoed through the meeting room. To her, as a barrel racer, this motto is quite literal. To the Faces of Leadership attendees, this motto rang true as a message to never give up. “I think we all learned a great lesson on perseverance,” says Green. “No matter how many times we get knocked down in life, you have to pick yourself up again and take life by the horns.” After hearing Amberley’s inspiring words, the group headed to tour the home of the NJHA at the American Hereford Association (AHA) office in downtown Kansas City. Attendees were welcomed by AHA Executive Vice President Jack Ward, who shared the history and future of the AHA. “I loved seeing the history of the AHA and all of the behind the scenes work done there,” Dvorak remarks. “It was cool seeing all of the individual offices and realizing that this is the space where all the important planning and work happens.” The juniors’ sights were set west Wednesday morning as they headed to Kansas State University (K-State) in Manhattan, Kan., for a full day of learning and leadership training. Group members put their teamwork skills to the test in the K-State Challenge Course. Just as in life, through mental and physical obstacles, the group of juniors found ways to accomplish their goals while learning about themselves and their teammates. continued on page 38...

NJHA members enjoyed time to relax on their first day of Faces of Leadership at Main Event: Eat. Bowl. Play.

Hannah Williams of Nebraska remained calm and comfortable on the zero gravity ropes at Main Event: Eat. Bowl. Play.

Lots of laughs were shared as juniors took on the K-State Challenge Course.

In Calving 101, A.J. Tarpoff, K-State assistant professor, showed the juniors what to do and what not do when pulling calves.

Lisa Norton, BioZyme, Inc., vice president, shared life advice with the NJHA juniors Thursday morning.

From pregnancy diagnosis to DNA testing and embryology to calving dos and don’ts, participants found the reproductive rotation sessions helpful in improving their own herds. “With embryology, I’m used to just seeing the last step in all of that and seeing just the end result, but at K-State, I got to see the whole process from start to finish,” says second year Faces of Leadership participant Chesney Effling, Highmore, S.D. “Seeing all of that from a microscopic view point was really interesting.”

The NJHA members packed up their new industry knowledge and took it along with them to Jensen Bros. in Courtland, Kan., where they judged a class of Hereford cattle and enjoyed a meal provided by the Jensen family.

Leave your space a better place A trip to BioZyme Inc. in St. Joseph, Mo., kicked off the final day of Faces of Leadership with a tour of its facility. BioZyme Vice President Lisa Norton shared what the Nortons’ company stands for and why they support the NJHA. “We take it very seriously to prep you to win in life and not just in the showring,” Norton says. It was apparent through the tour that BioZyme works to improve the industry not only by

improving its products but also by taking the time to teach the individuals that are a part of it. NJHA members were shown the step-by-step process of how BioZyme products get from the drawing board to their own show barns. “It was interesting to see how they come up with the idea of all of these popular products,” Effling says. “The tour showed us the start to finish process, and I liked being able to see just how much time and effort goes into just one bag of product.” The theme of self-improvement continued with motivational speaker Heather Schultz as she taught the group to “leave their space a better place.”

The NJHA members cheered on the Kansas City Royals to end a great week of leadership, networking and fun.

Schultz began her speech with the question, “How incredible would the world be if we left every space better than when we found it, or if we left every person better than when we first met them?” It was like witnessing a small fireworks show as one by one the Faces of Leadership participants had a small epiphany as they realized that changing the cattle industry or changing the agriculture industry as a whole was as simple as leaving it better than when they found it. Even after enjoying a tailgate at Kauffman Stadium and a Kansas City Royals win later that day to wrap up the Faces of Leadership Conference, Heather’s words stuck with the NJHA members as they traveled home after a full three days of activities. Through the miles traveled and the knowledge and skills gained, the Faces of Leadership Conference has once again strived to leave its space a better place by impacting NJHA members from all over the country.

The next generation of breeders Faces of Leadership Conference attendees learned more than leadership skills. From pregnancy diagnosis to DNA testing and embryology to calving tips, participants took home reproductive knowledge helpful in improving their own herds. Shane Bedwell set the tone for the reproductive sessions saying, “I’m counting on you all to be the next generation of great breeders that do things the right way.” Here are some key points Hereford youth took away:

Calving 101 with A.J. Tarphoff

• After 20-30 minutes of pulling a calf, call for help. • It takes 12-15 hours for a cow to pass placenta. Don’t pull it out. • Let nature take its course; interfering can sometimes make things worse. • Don’t neglect your calving equipment.

What’s the Deal with DNA? with Shane Bedwell There are four acceptable DNA samples for the AHA: Hair, blood, tissue and semen.

Who Will Step Up? Young breeders explain their commitment to cattle production and the Hereford breed. by Haley Stark

B

y 2050 the world’s projected population is expected to reach over 9.5 billion. For agriculturalists, another statistic accompanying the exponential population growth is on their minds — less than 2% of the nation’s population is farmers and ranchers, a number that is getting smaller every year. Yet, that 2% provides the country, and the world, a reliable supply of fuel, food and fiber. Today, the average farmer is over 58 years old. As the population continues to expand, the decreasing and aging population of farmers is expected to cultivate the land and to produce commodities to feed the world — a hefty expectation. Often out of the spotlight, there are young, ambitious cattlemen and women choosing to stay in production who are thriving in their own operations. Although diverse in their goals, management styles and locations, the following six Hereford breeders have all made a unanimous choice to stay involved within production agriculture and to encourage younger generations to remain engaged with the industry.

Like father, like son Quality and progressive genetics have always been an expectation at Dakitch Hereford Farms, located in northwest Minnesota. Matthew Kitchell, 32, is a fourth-generation farmer and second-generation Hereford breeder, running and operating the ranch established by his father, David. He currently calves around 200 cows a year and is using embryo technologies on his herd. He also has Angus cattle and a commercial herd. Matthew has always been passionate about the cattle industry. He briefly attended college but quickly realized his calling was back home on the farm. With his wealth

of knowledge and experience, Matthew’s father served as Matthew’s greatest role model growing up, and he’s thankful for the breeding philosophies David instilled in him. “The key is to have high quality and draw in new customers,” Matthew says. “Dad always stressed good udder quality, good feet and good, thick polled Hereford cattle. That’s what I was told and that’s how we’ve always been. That’s our philosophy in the Hereford business.” Matthew has taken the reins on managing breeding decisions and improving marketing strategies. He doesn’t stray from the priorities established by his father; rather he’s enhanced the operation with his ideas. The operation started carcass scanning a few years ago and relies heavily on performance data. Matthew focuses his herd and purchasing cattle around quality and performance to continue to move forward. “One thing young breeders need to continue is collecting and sending in data. Your herd is built around your records. You need to know what cows are producing in the pasture,” he explains. Matthew is also passionate about utilizing technology to promote his business. He uses Facebook to market his cattle as well as keeps a modern, functional website up-to-date. He believes having a webpage with recent show results and herd sires is essential, using technology frequently and efficiently. Matthew says the most rewarding aspect of his career is when his genetics do well in other cattlemen’s operations, allowing other breeders to find success. However, raising cattle doesn’t come without obstacles, and Matthew points out adapting and fighting drastic weather changes and maintaining herd health when weather gets extreme is the most challenging. He speaks highly of production agriculture and wouldn’t trade breeding and raising Hereford cattle for anything else. Today, much like his father, Matthew is on the Minnesota Hereford Breeders board of directors, where he currently serves as vice president. His main goal is to maintain the quality of his operation as he continues to expand and enhance facilities. Hereford.org


Continuing a legacy Family ties run deep at Candy Meadow Farms, located in Lexington, Tenn. The farm was founded in 1952 by the late Max Helms. Max and his wife had three sons along with one daughter. Their daughter passed at age 3 from multiple sclerosis, and the farm was named in her memory “Candy” Meadow Farms. After the passing of the farm’s original proprietor, son Rob Helms took over the operation and added Angus and Charolais cattle to their Hereford operation in 1989 and 1990 to diversify their market. Today, Heath Helms, 30, is taking over the operation’s responsibilities with an ambitious attitude. As for Heath, he always knew raising cattle and managing the operation were exactly what he wanted to do. He still advises younger breeders to get the best education possible. “Not only can receiving an a post-high-school education be very beneficial in your day-to-day operations and management, but it also gives you another option if times get tough,” he says. Growing up on the farm in Tennessee is what Heath says laid the foundation for the person he’s become, teaching him irreplaceable values and morals. “I absolutely eat, sleep, and breathe cattle. I love every segment of the beef industry,” he adds. Today, Heath wears numerous hats on Candy Meadow Farms from the day-to-day care of cattle to fixing fences, putting up hay and making breeding decisions. He also handles registrations, transfers and performance records. He heads marketing strategies through catalogs and advertisements. Although dealing with weather changes and locating helpful labor for the farm can be challenging at times, Heath believes the rewards of raising cattle far outweigh the negatives. He’s thankful for the relationships and lifelong friendships he’s developed through this industry. “Meeting someone for the first time as a kid, knowing they bought Hereford bulls from my granddad, then their kids buy bulls here, and in some cases their grandkids — that’s special to me,” Heath says. Heath stresses the importance of young people returning to cattle production. He believes seedstock producers are responsible for keeping Hereford.org

up with the evolving technology. “We, as young people, are the future of the industry,” he says. “In the blink of an eye, we’ll be depending on the next generation and if we don’t stay in production then we can’t expect our kids to do the same.” Committed to educating and engaging younger generations, Heath makes interacting with young cattle producers a priority. When he’s not helping young Hereford breeders, Heath spends his time talking with others, sharing ideas and building relationships. In terms of Candy Meadow Farms, Heath strives to continue a legacy that began 65 years ago. His goal is to leave the cattle and land better than the day before while carrying on the honesty and integrity of the Helms family for generations to come.

Branded by hard work Located in central Nebraska, 27-year-old Grady McMahon is one of the owners of MCM Polled Herefords. The operation, founded approximately 70 years ago, has nearly 100 registered Hereford cows. Grady grew up on the ranch, showing alongside his three siblings and helping the men who laid the foundation for the business. He attended Fort Hayes State University as an animal science major. Grady always knew he wanted to be involved in the family farm. “It has been and always will be a family operation,” he says. Five years ago Grady’s uncle wanted to retire from the family operation and offered Grady an opportunity too perfect to pass up — he offered to sell out his part of the operation to Grady. Almost immediately, Grady saw the benefit of his college degree from the knowledge he gained in business and genetics courses. More importantly, attending college taught him to step out of his comfort zone, to interact with new people and to develop relationships — skills that are essential to thrive in the cattle industry. Grady credits his hands-on knowledge and work ethic to his father, uncle and grandfather. His grandfather taught Grady the importance of efficiency and using common sense to simplify tedious farm tasks, and his father showed him how to use breeding tools and how to make decisions. Managing an operation poses some challenges, but Grady willingly tackles those obstacles to maintain the life he’s passionate about. “If you enjoy what you’re doing, it’s easy to look over the continued on page 44...

more challenging parts,” he says. Attending shows like the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), where Grady can help youth exhibitors and see all the hard work they’ve poured into MCM cattle is the most rewarding. Calving season is also one of Grady’s favorite times of the year because he gets to see if his breeding decisions paid off. Grady, too, reiterated the necessity for younger agriculturalists to invest in cattle production. “If we don’t have kids returning to production, when retiring ranchers go to sell out, they don’t have anyone to pass the ranch on to,” he explains. He understands it’s challenging for someone to start his or her own operation or to gain hands-on experience. For that reason, Grady and his family stay actively involved in the Nebraska Hereford Association and give back to youth through 4-H and FFA. Grady also spends his time traveling to junior shows to help exhibitors that purchased cattle from their operation. Grady advises any prospective breeders not to be intimidated by the hard work involved with raising cattle. He mentions that although the lifestyle requires dedication, ultimately it’s rewarding. He encourages younger breeders to always focus on moving forward.

Off the beaten path Five generations of steadfast cattlemen have owned and operated Powell Ranches, headquartered in Fort McKavett, Texas. Powell Ranches has expanded from when it first started running cattle in the 1950s to now include a Hereford herd, a commercial cattle herd and a Rambouillet sheep operation. Today, a few hundred head of cattle reside at Powell Ranches and approximately 100 bulls are sold annually through the ranch’s registered Hereford bull sale. James Uhl, the 25-year-old grandson of Jimmy Powell, currently works at Powell Ranches and has become an essential component to the operation’s success, yet his journey to his career is nontraditional, compared to most. His mother grew up on the ranch and met and married James’ father, an attorney. They moved to San Antonio to raise a family. As James grew up in San Antonio, his agricultural experience came strictly through his

44

| September 2017

summer and winter breaks spent working at his grandfather’s ranch. He never showed Hereford cattle at JNHE or was part of an FFA chapter, yet he always knew he had an underlying passion for agriculture, specifically raising cattle. “In college I knew it was something I wanted to be involved with,” he explains. “The way I see it, it’s up to myself and my siblings to continue the operation, and really, it was a natural decision.” After graduating from the University of Texas with a bachelor’s degree in economics and business, James decided to work at Powell Ranches. In addition to working on the ranch, James also helps out with accounting and business management. More recently, James has been leading a business restructuring to make the ranch more efficient. His goal is to make the operation more profitable at the end of the day. James credits his business skillset to his college education but also realizes he further developed it through real-life experiences on the ranch. “There will be so much pressure put on producers to become more efficient in the way they produce — an educational background will support an aggressive advancement of the industry and of specific operations,” he explains. Yet, James is quick to point out that college isn’t the only staple to a successful business. He notes critically analyzing and setting goals is a simple strategy any breeder can implement. He gained most of his knowledge from his grandfather and ranch manager David Neal. James also considers his father one of his greatest mentors for pushing him to succeed and providing him with the opportunity to return to agriculture. He too became involved on the ranch and participates within the operation’s business side without having an agricultural background himself. “He more or less ushered me into the role I’m in today,” James says. With James’ own story, he recognizes young people without production agriculture experience have difficulty becoming engaged in the industry. James says there are numerous industry professionals, breeders and Hereford families willing to share their experience and knowledge with others. Getting more young people involved and having older generations mentor them should ultimately get those people more comfortable and confident in their abilities within production agriculture. With the unique circumstances that landed James in cattle production, he is even more motivated to advocate for the industry. He values the opportunity to work with livestock and to be outside every day while working alongside other people that share similar values. For James it’s rewarding to see commodities produced as a result of something that his loves.

Dynamic duo Lou Ellen Harr and her daughter, Keayla, lead J&L Cattle Services, Jeromesville, Ohio. Lou Ellen, who manages the operation, grew up on a polled Hereford operation in southern Missouri. Shortly after college, Lou Ellen moved to the East Coast, where she was hired to manage a small polled Hereford herd at Triple J Farms in Richmond, Va. At that time, women managing a farm were kind of an oddity, but Lou Ellen didn’t let that deter her from improving the farm over the span of five years. Later, friends recommend she apply for a management position in Ohio on Big T Ranch. Out of curiosity, she interviewed without much hope of the interview leading anywhere. Lou Ellen remembers not only being impressed by the area but also appreciating the enthusiasm of the owner. She was surprised when she received the phone call offering her a job. Over the next eight years, Lou Ellen took on a crucial role at Big T Ranch, serving as show cattle manager and working on heifer development. The ranch dispersed in 1996, the same year she discovered she and her husband were expecting their first child, Keayla. Lou Ellen and her husband purchased all the land, barns and house previously owned by Big T Ranch at public auction. As soon as the auction concluded, the Harrs received a standing ovation from their neighbors and fellow farmers and were immediately approached by a breeder friend who wanted to do business with them if Lou Ellen intended to stay in cattle production and the Hereford breed. The answer was an easy “yes.” Lou Ellen established a diverse cattle business. She managed clients’ donor cows, created a fitting service business and custom flushed donor cows while raising and exhibiting competitive seedstock at shows across the country. “I feel very honored to be a female in agriculture,” Lou Ellen says. “Reputable breeders have asked me to buy cattle for them over the years, and I feel humbled they trust me, a woman, to handle that responsibility.” Keayla Harr, 20, says she grew up living and breathing cattle production. While she was a young child, her parents were still hauling 26 head of Hereford cattle to national shows. Keayla embraced the lifestyle and was integrated into the day-to-day tasks around the farm. Keayla evolved from being a helping hand to having a majority of the cattle responsibility when her parents need it. After high school, Keayla attend Casper College for two years as an animal Hereford.org

science major. Her distance and time away from home allowed her to appreciate her operation back in Ohio as well as made her realize she ultimately wanted to take over J&L Cattle Services one day. Today, Keayla is a junior at Kansas State University and is pursuing an animal science degree with the goal of becoming a ruminant nutritionist. She hopes to work within the industry for a few years before returning home to own and operate her family’s cattle business. Both Lou Ellen and Keayla confidently say the most rewarding aspect of raising Hereford cattle is the connections they’ve made. Lou Ellen believes women will find a niche within the industry. “Women’s attention to detail will be a huge attribute in production as we have more governmental regulations over land use and animal care,” Lou Ellen explains. “And they’re personable when it comes to telling their agricultural story and promoting an operation.” J&L Cattle Services has evolved over the years. After renting more ground, their cow herd has grown to about 80 cows. They still do some custom work; they custom calve higher risk cows for clients and do embryo transfer work. They have hosted a production sale every other year since 2005 and hope to expand and to diversify their herd, to increase their acreage over the next few years and to offer a production sale annually. Keayla aspires to have a feedlot so her family can analyze carcass data and performance to enhance carcass merit. To inspire and mentor younger generations, Keayla and her mom work tirelessly to bring new, inexperienced exhibitors to JNHE and cattle shows. By providing them helpful tools and wisdom, they hope to bring those kids closer to cattle production and to leave a lasting impression on their future goals.

A powerful example A life in production agriculture, especially one raising and managing cattle, isn’t always glorious, but it’s a rewarding, raw lifestyle each of these Hereford breeders proudly represents. Their experiences within the Hereford breed have provided them countless connections and lifelong friendships. As the average farmer gets older, the more pressure there will be on the agricultural industry to sustain production. Soon breeders will turn to younger generations to take the reins on the nation’s backbone industry.

Adventures Abroad

A Hereford youth says Guten Tag to a German journey and a trip of a lifetime. by Haley Stark

W

anderlust is defined as the strong desire to travel, and for 20-year-old Shelby Bagnell, Slater, Mo., it was a familiar feeling as she progressed through college. As a small-town girl raised on the family cattle operation, international studies and a chance to explore European culture seemed nearly out of reach until a Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) scholarship turned that dream into a reality. Shelby, an agricultural education major with a teaching emphasis at the University of Missouri, first became aware of study-abroad trips as a freshman when older students promoting travel opportunities visited her classes. The concept instantly sparked Shelby’s interest and inspired her to apply. The day after she submitted her study-abroad application, Shelby received exciting news — she was the recipient of a $10,000 Jack and Donna Vanier Scholarship. Shelby is an active member of the Missouri Hereford Association and has been showing since she could walk; she has attended numerous Junior National Hereford Expos (JNHEs) and served as the 2015 Missouri Hereford Queen. Currently, Shelby is on the Missouri Junior Hereford Association board of directors.

For Shelby the HYFA scholarship provided her the financial means she needed to make her international trip possible. “It was like fate,” Shelby says. “I applied on a whim last fall to go, I got accepted, then the next day I found out I received the scholarship.” She was awarded an additional scholarship through the university that covered everyday expenses while in Germany. The following March, Shelby departed to Germany with 25 other agricultural students for 10 days, where they ventured to a new city nearly every night. Close by her side was a small journal to document every memory and sight as she explored European culture and international agriculture.

A history fanatic Germany is teeming with historical importance. Ancient architecture, magnificent castles tucked within towering mountains and museums filled with timeless artifacts are common components of the federal parliamentary republic’s culture. Shelby’s infatuation with history left her excited as they embarked on the trip with an itinerary full of historical stops and sightseeing. The first two busy days of Shelby’s study-abroad adventure were spent in Berlin, Germany’s capital Hereford.org


and largest city. “The first day we were there we hit the ground running, and we didn’t stop,” Shelby says. That day the group visited an engineering university where they listened to professors and graduate students speak on research experiments including utilizing lactic acid from dairy cattle to produce plastic cups. While in Berlin, the students were given an additional free day to leisurely explore the city. Shelby visited popular tourist venues including Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate, a museum with a piece of the Berlin wall on display and the Berlin Cathedral. Shelby also witnessed a European Union (EU) rally while in Berlin, an experience that she recalls as both eye-opening and intense. Next the students traveled six hours west to the Cologne, a city made of cobblestone streets where the Cologne Cathedral’s twin spires paint the skyline with a sense of Gothic architecture and Roman history. The cathedral, took more than 250 years to complete, is voted as one of the country’s most visited tourist attractions. “The Cathedral was the only thing not damaged during World War II,” Shelby explains. “Next to the Cathedral is the Hohenzollern Bridge crossing the Rhine River, it’s the bridge with all locks on it. They were actually cutting off some of the locks because they were weighing down the bridge and slowly destroying it.” Next on the map was Frankfurt, one of the most important commercial and economic centers of mainland Europe. Outside of the bustling city life, Frankfurt is also home to a Riesling winery the students toured. Shelby notes the stretching

vineyards and quaint castle and courtyards were once home to a former knight and his family. Shelby enjoyed visiting an eight-story Mercedes Benz museum, where each floor was dedicated to a particular time era. “A lot of the boys I was with were very excited about it,” Shelby says. “But it was really cool to see how their automobiles have changed over time and how Mercedes Benz actually contributed to manufacturing during World War II.” Of all the historic destinations, the most breathtaking was the Neuschwanstein Castle. Located above the village of Hohenschwangau on a rugged hill in the middle of the alps, the castle is an elaborate 19th-century Romanesque palace. Shelby found several souvenirs in the small tourist town before taking a 35-minute hike up the mountain to get a view of the castle. For Shelby the most gripping and moving site, however, was Dachau Concentration Camp. “I didn’t take a lot of pictures because it wasn’t something I felt I needed to photograph,” Shelby explains. “If you want to see it, it’s something you need to come and experience for yourself.” The overwhelming continued on page 52...

size of the camp left Shelby speechless. She found herself hypnotized by the camp’s somber history as they spent three hours walking the same path the prisoners once walked, starting where they got off the train. They witnessed the showers and crematorium and even saw the documentation center, an arena Hitler was making to hold rallies and meetings before he was killed. It was later turned into a museum.

Agricultural destinations Before Shelby left for Germany, she was eager to compare her experiences growing up on a small farm to German agriculture. Because she traveled with the university’s Ag Systems Management Program, there was emphasis on European agricultural engineering. The group visited the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences-Lemgo campus and toured a cutting-edge technology SMART factory implementing practices like 3D printing. The professor who traveled with the students had a friend who was the head of agricultural engineering at the university, so the group got an inside look at the university and its research studies. Later that evening the group ate dinner and socialized with several German graduate students. The study-abroad students further learned about equipment manufacturing as they toured both a smaller company called CLAAS and a larger John Deere facility. CLAAS is a family-owned German machinery company known for its specialized LEXION combine. At the John Deere factory in the city of Mannheim, Shelby compared German production to the John Deere facility in Moline, Ill. “It was a huge facility,” Shelby says. “They do make a lot smaller equipment in Germany than in the U.S., but we still got to see the cab be put on to the body of a tractor and it was neat to see how it all came together.” Next on the itinerary was the Technical University of Munich, where there was ongoing engineering research

with dairy cattle production. The university has a small indoor dairy barn with 56 head of Brown Swiss cattle. There, a robot manure cleaner was created featuring a laser that can map out the path where the cattle frequently travel and then generate a map into the computer where the robot manure cleaner follows the path to clean up manure. Shelby learned more about production agriculture when they visited German farmer Thomas Muhr, who grows wheat, rye and sugar beets as well as operates a small precision agriculture company. His farm, at approximately 800 acres, is one of the largest operations in Germany. Shelby says she valued the farmer’s honesty with students as he opened the discussion up to all questions. Germany requires agricultural commodities to be entirely organic and non-GMO (genetically modified organism), which poses some contrast to American agriculture. Thomas explained to the group how German farmers face a lot of pressure from consumers and government regulations. The government is very strict on agricultural practices and has even shut down some farms. Shelby says Muhr reiterated to the group how fortunate the U.S. was for having a government that supports farming and agriculture. She notes other differences in German agriculture, too. “There’s smaller scale farms with mostly dairy cattle and sheep,” Shelby explains. “I only saw three beef cows at the German farmer’s operation; they import a lot of their beef cattle and there’s virtually no hogs.” In fact, the German government is leaning toward importing agricultural commodities instead of producing them.

Back on the map As an agricultural education major, Shelby says she is thankful for her experiences in Europe. For her, it put American agriculture in perspective. “Things are a lot different in other countries, the United States is very lucky to have the agricultural advances that we do and have the opportunities we do,” Shelby says. “Especially traveling abroad, very few students in Germany study abroad, and they’re usually grad students if they do. As an undergraduate student, that made me feel very fortunate.” Shelby intends on traveling abroad again. She has her eyes set on a trip to Australia or New Zealand. With hopes of becoming an agricultural teacher after college, Shelby plans on incorporating international agriculture and various countries into her classroom, aiming to teach an “ag around the world” class. It’s her goal to educate other students and JNHE members about study-abroad opportunities because they are something Shelby almost missed out on. She advises anyone interested in or curious about studying abroad to ask questions and to apply for scholarships. “Ask anyone you know that’s been on a study abroad trip and apply for scholarships,” Shelby says. “Without scholarships, my trip wouldn’t have been possible and the knowledge I learned from my trip is something I’ll never forget.” Hereford.org

ereford youth were off to the races for a week of competition and family fun as they gathered July 15-21, in Louisville, Ky., for “Showin’ for the Roses.” The record-setting 18th VitaFerm® Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) hosted more than 900 youth and their families from 35 states who came together to not only compete in the showring and contests, but to gain new friends and new experiences. Hereford youth exhibited 1,513 entries, including 705 polled owned females, 255 horned owned females, 339 bred-and-owned females, 95 bredand-owned bulls, 36 cow-calf pairs and 83 steers. In the group classes, 18 states exhibited 90 head of cattle. Throughout the week, outstanding juniors were awarded nearly $30,000 in scholarships. They were also able to participate in more than 20 contests outside of the showring. The Kentucky crew hosted families at the Derby Tailgate Party in which states shared tailgate treats from their home state. Derby-style hats donned the crowd and friendly competition narrowed down the most creative. Numerous youth attended the newcomer orientation which allowed new JNHE attendees to meet the National Junior Hereford Association board and learn about all that the JNHE offers. Icebreakers provided an opportunity for them to meet people from different states. The JNHE would not be possible without the incredible support from title sponsor BioZyme Inc., St. Joseph, Mo., as well as a multitude of corporate and breeder sponsors. Thank you to all the sponsors for continued support of the JNHE. “Showin’ for the Roses” was an event steeped in Derby tradition and southern hospitality providing a wholesome event for Hereford families.

2017 JNHE Retiring NJHA Board Members

As One Door Closes, Another Opens Jessica Middleswarth, Kelsey Powell, Kelsey Stimpson and Austin Cole leave a lasting imression on NJHA youth as they hand off their maroon jackets. by Haley Stark

T

hree years ago, at the 2014 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), four junior members sat anxiously in their seats, waiting for the retiring board members to hand off their beloved maroon jackets to four new board members. Little did these four acquaintances know they would soon experience one of the greatest nights of their lives as they embarked on a oncein-a-lifetime journey with the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA). For Jessica Middleswarth, Kelsey Powell, Kelsey Stimpson and Austin Cole, being handed the esteemed maroon jacket that night was filled with emotion and excitement, yet they had no scope of the experiences, hard work and memories they would experience over the next three years as newly elected NJHA board members.

| September 2017

Fast forward three years and these four individuals reminisce about all the unforgettable memories and countless hours of hard work poured into the organization to make it better and to inspire Hereford youth. Although they recently passed on their maroon jackets to the next group of excited and ambitious junior board directors, their love for the Hereford breed and youth membership is unending. It is something they’ll hold dear to their hearts as they adventure into the next chapter of their lives.

Hereford roots With all four retiring board members stemming from extensive Hereford backgrounds, their involvement with the NJHA is no surprise.

Middleswarth is a fourth-generation Hereford breeder from Torrington, Wyo. Her father introduced both her and her older sister to the industry and, later, the showring. Middleswarth was inspired to run for the junior board after watching members on the board before her, and she wanted to give back to the individuals who invested in her. One of those individuals included her older sister, Ashley Fitzsimmons, who had previously served as an NJHA board member. Middleswarth also ran for the board for her parents. “I felt that I owed it to my parents because they got me involved in such a great association,” she says. Both Powell and Stimpson wanted to be elected to the NJHA board for as long as they could remember. For Powell, she always had the dream since she grew up on a Hereford seedstock operation in Mitchell, S.D., and became actively involved in the South Dakota Hereford Association. Yet, it was at numerous JNHEs that Powell truly fell in love with the NJHA and its members. “I admired the board members,” Powell says. “I knew I wanted to help the industry, leave my mark and help create tomorrow’s leaders too.” Stimpson, born into a thirdgeneration Hereford ranch in Melba, Idaho, affectionately recalls at 8 years old telling her mother she wanted a maroon jacket. Uniquely, Stimpson was just a junior in high school when she ran for the board after a phone call from her advisor, even though she originally planned on running in 2016. “I wasn’t expecting it but decided, out of the blue, to run,” Stimpson says. “I met the age requirement by like 3 days,” she laughs. “I was really nervous running younger, but I met a lot of great people as I was campaigning, and I’m thankful for that opportunity.” Cole, from Bowling Green, Ky., attributes his start in the showring to his baseball friend. At just 9 years old, he hit the showring with his Angus heifer but shortly switched to showing Herefords — the rest is history. Over the years he continued to get more involved within the NJHA

Hereford.org


Jessica Middleswarth, 21, is the daughter of Jay and Marsha Middleswarth of Torrington, Wyo., and is a senior attending OSU as an agricultural communications major. She previously attended Butler Community College and participated on the livestock judging team. She says she is blessed to have the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful organization and encourages youth to get involved. In an emotional conclusion to her junior board term, she thanked her family and close friends for their support and her older sister for being the greatest inspiration and role model she could ever ask for.

and attended numerous JNHEs. Cole credits the people and experiences from JNHEs for his inspiration to run for the junior board. During his Hereford journey, Cole feels thankful for all the great friends he has met along the way. “It’s been a fun ride,” he says. All four retiring members recall the intensity while they campaigned and interviewed for the open positions. Middleswarth remembers the seven other candidates she ran with, initially all full of nervous energy but, throughout the week, becoming good friends. For Cole, he remembers the nerves setting in as early as the application process. When they applied, seven letters of recommendation were required along with several essay responses. After coordinating the legwork for the application, Cole also recalls the preparation, including his parents quizzing him on interview questions during the 14-hour trip from Alabama to Pennsylvania. Each retiring member had unique experiences while running and being elected. For Stimpson, it was starting her three-year term as a 17-year-old high school senior was quite unique. She reflects on the juggling act she began shortly after being elected — balancing school, classes and NJHA responsibilities. Even though at times being a director was challenging, Stimpson doesn’t regret any second

of it and is thankful the experience helped her grow and mature. After surviving the strenuous application process and campaigning at JNHE, the anticipation mounted to an all time high for each of the four candidates. They all look back on that awards night three years ago when they received that coveted maroon jacket as one they will never forget. Today, they’ve traveled thousands of miles, planned shows, worked tiring days in the ring and left a lasting impression on NJHA youth membership.

A bittersweet goodbye With three years’ worth of memories to choose from, the four retiring board members struggled to put their favorite part of their junior board experience into words. They reflect

nostalgically on the team comradery and family dynamic developed over their terms, which made every NJHA event enjoyable. All four retiring members confidently said they’d miss the people within the association the most. With two dedicated leaders in American Hereford Association (AHA) staff, Amy Cowan and Bailey Clanton, the retiring four experienced three years of drastic growth and teamwork. “We’ve had to mature a lot as a team — we had to make decisions, work together, cooperate and learn how to handle situations and activities,” Middleswarth says. Together their group, or maroon jacket posse, has become the closest of friends. Stimpson says the junior board gave her the gift of travel, and she fondly remembers her favorite trips to Connecticut, Massachusetts and California. Growing up in Idaho, she never dreamed she’d travel that far northeast and have show experiences coast-to-coast. Among her favorite memories is working state and regional shows. There, she valued the people she met tremendously and loved serving as a role model to youth. “You always have eyes watching you,” she says. Similarly, Cole says he’ll miss the constant networking he’s experienced through his travels and the one-onone interaction with the kids at junior shows. “I really enjoyed working with continued on page 72...

Kelsey Powell, 23, is the daughter of Steve and Lori Repenning of Mitchell, S.D. Kelsey is a 2016 graduate of South Dakota State University with a major in agricultural communication and animal science. She currently works at Forum Communications as a multimedia marketing coordinator. Kelsey used her final speech as an opportunity to share her perseverance when she wasn’t elected to the board the first time. She encouraged those candidates that didn’t receive a maroon jacket to brush themselves off, to not give up and to run again. “You won’t regret it,” she says.

2017 JNHE Retiring NJHA Board Members

Austin Cole, 23, is the son of Don and Katina Cole from Bowling Green, Ky. He is a 2016 graduate of Western Kentucky University with a major in animal science and a minor in business administration. Today he is employed at Triple C Hereford and Black Hereford Farm in northern Alabama. In his retiring remarks, he revisited three items he used during his candidate speech three years ago illustrating hard work, preparation skills and industry connections he developed over the past three years.

the juniors whether it be JNHE or FACES, watching those members grow over three years and get a couple years under their belts,” he reflects. Shortly after being elected, Cole and the rest of the team spent a day out on the lake in Oklahoma as a post-JNHE reward. There, he fondly recalls the fun they all had as a group — just hanging out, socializing and building friendships. Part of serving on the junior board includes long days spent helping in the showring. Achy joints and sore feet are almost inevitable, but Middleswarth notes the work is all worth it. Her favorite part is when junior members come up to her and her fellow teammates, full of thanks and recognition for the junior board’s endless dedication. “What I take away from the junior board the most is the impact you leave on the kids,” she points out. Middleswarth says knowing she inspired a junior, even if it’s just one, is the greatest thing she’s done, and she’s thankful to have been a role model. Powell notes the perseverance her time on the junior board instilled in her. Unlike her other teammates, Powell ran twice for the junior board, an opportunity she labels a learning experience. She looks back on the first year thankful that it allowed her to better prepare for running a second year, and it certainly paid off. “You only regret the things in life you don’t try to do,” she says. “And you change so much in those three years, it teaches you a lot— those are pretty big years in your life.” Like Middleswarth, Powell is thankful for her time in the ring,

keeping all the moments spent up close during the champion drive close to her heart. “It’s an awesome moment to see junior members’ hard work pay off,” she adds.

Words of wisdom For as long as she can remember, Powell has admired and has looked up to the retiring junior board members. In fact, as a child, she always anticipated hearing those retiring members’ final remarks and speeches. “It’s neat seeing them leave their mark and inspire the next generation,” Powell says. At the 2017 JNHE, the tables were turned as Powell, Stimpson, Middleswarth and Cole gave their retiring remarks to youth membership and offered advice to the newly elected board.

Cole says his time on the junior board engrained the importance and necessity of organizational skills. Over three years, he learned to prepare events and stay on top of responsibilities, like sponsorship calls, in a timely manner. He advises the newly elected board members to be proactive and to use those skills acquired through junior board experiences to navigate trickier conversations. “We all have other stuff going on, but don’t drag your feet out and make sure you get stuff done and work hard,” he says. He pushes any excited youth member to take that step to run for the board — it pays off. Middleswarth reminds the newly elected board members no one should take the job lightly. She considers this position one of the greatest things she’s done in her life and hopes the new board members will fill those shoes ambitiously and humbly. “This should be your priority as you represent one of the biggest associations in the country. Be inspired and take it seriously — people look up to you,” she says. Being a junior board member encompasses far more than just working shows, and Powell offers to keep an open mind. When she ran and was elected, Powell thought she knew exactly what being a director was going to be like, but she quickly realized there was much more involved. When

Kelsey Stimpson, 20, is the daughter of Danny and Katie Stimpson of Melba, Idaho. She is a senior at OSU, completing her agricultural communications degree. Kelsey has been a part of the NJHA for 12 years and has attended many JNHEs. She intends to give back to agricultural youth in the future and encourages NJHA members to step outside their comfort zones and to pursue greatness. Kelsey wrapped up the retiring addresses with thanks to their dynamic duo, Amy and Bailey Clanton. She also expressed her gratitude to every individual that played a crucial role in her time on the junior board, including the youth members. She called her time on the board a “miraculous journey.”

tackling day-to-day responsibilities associated with the role, which are sometimes tedious, she encourages the new board members to remember to revisit their “why” — which ultimately is their passion for the Hereford breed and the kids that are a part of it. Powell also points out that the skills gained showing cattle hold true in the working world as well. She reassures the newly elected board members that the hard work and dedication they’ve established through the showring and the campaigning process will aid them in their junior board years. Stimpson advises the newly elected board members to constantly step outside their comfort zones. She says that a person setting his or her mind to something and working hard is critical to accomplish any goal. As a team, they have encountered obstacles, but working together and working hard individually has helped them resolve all of those problems. “Be yourself and capitalize on every single opportunity imaginable. Meet every person possible at junior national and Faces of Leadership,” she says. “It’s crazy what people remember, you leave an impact by just being personable and outgoing.”

and-dear to their hearts, they are all diving into new and exciting opportunities and to stay actively involved in the NJHA and the AHA. Both Middleswarth and Stimpson are currently seniors at Oklahoma State University (OSU), finishing up their agricultural communication degrees. Middleswarth aspires to be a lifelong advocate within the industry, and upon graduation in May, she hopes to find a job in agricultural broadcasting. Ultimately, her goal is to return home to Wyoming and to carry on the family tradition of raising quality Hereford cattle and leaving a lasting legacy in the breed. Stimpson’s personal experiences as a junior board member and officer turned her passion for youth membership into her purpose. She dreams of one day working for a breed association. “Serving on the

board has ignited a passion in me to continue to give back to youth, so I would love to work with youth development and youth programs in the future,” she explains. Cole currently manages a cattle operation in northern Alabama and has high hopes for his goals within the cattle industry. He says he’s taken the leadership skills he’s learned while being on the Hereford junior board and uses them in his job on a dayto-day basis. Outside his career, Cole wants to continue to show and to sell Hereford cattle for as long as he’s able. He plans on vacationing at JNHE every year. Powell is currently employed as the marketing coordinator for Forum Communication in South Dakota, where she serves as an advocate for the industry and shares her own agricultural story. She also hopes to extend her own herd back home and to stay intricately involved in the family operation because she can’t imagine her life without it.

Oh, the places you’ll go Although the four retiring junior board members may be closing one chapter of their lives, they hold near-

2017 JNHE Herdsman of the Year

It’s Only the Beginning Hereford Junior Herdsman of the Year Steven Green has big plans for his future in the Hereford breed. by Julie Mais

B

Steven Green is pictured receiving his Junior Herdsman of the Year buckle from National Hereford Queen Annah Dobson.

The moment Steven decided to become a Hereford breeder was captured at his county fair.

ack in 2007 a young Steven Green was at the county fair washing his steer when something caught his eye. Looking over his right shoulder and forgetting about his task at hand, Steven set his eyes on a Hereford heifer stepping off a nearby trailer. Starting to show heifers had been on his mind, and that moment sealed his fate — Steven became a Hereford breeder. “I just fell in love with the Hereford breed,” says Steven Green, Munfordville, Ky., who was honored as the 2017 Hereford Junior Herdsman of the Year, July 21, during the 2017 VitaFerm® Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Louisville, Ky. Junior Herdsman of the Year finalists are chosen by a committee of national advisors; then participants at JNHE vote for the winner. Steven, who had been named National Junior Hereford Association board chairman two days before, was already in the showring when the announcement was made. He was standing amongst fellow board members helping with the awards presentations.

Steven and his fiancé, Lauren, plan to remain in the Hereford family and grow their herd.

“It’s just a huge honor and blessing to receive this award,” Steven says. “The list of finalists for the Junior Herdsman of the Year was super tough. Each one is deserving. They should have more than one belt buckle for this contest.”

Learning the ropes Not having been raised in a Hereford family, Steven says it means even more to him to be recognized for his passion and dedication to the Hereford breed. Steven grew up on a small commercial cattle operation working alongside his dad, a veterinarian, and his brother, who still works on the family farm. In 2008 Steven bought a Hereford heifer and built his small herd up to 15 head, which still includes his first Hereford. He got involved in the Kentucky Hereford Association, and his passion for the breed continued to grow. In the early years of showing cattle, Steven says he had to learn much of the trade. “We had no clue what we were doing,” Steven says. “It was a lot of trial and error. Dad had a grasp of feeding one, but when it came to fitting and clipping, I learned it on my own.” Steven’s dad took him to a few clinics to learn fitting and clipping. “What it boiled down to was me just doing it and figuring out what it’s supposed to look like and replicating what I wanted. You’ll ruin a few,” he laughs, noting everyone starts somewhere. “Some are fortunate enough to have three generations behind them and walk in to it and have teachers there their whole life. But for those who don’t, it’s really important when there’s someone who will take them under their wing. That’s why I’ve been so big on helping out other juniors.”

Tips from the herdsman Hereford Junior Herdsman of the Year Steven Green offers advice for Hereford youth. • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. “It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and just watch. You have to be engaged, and this Hereford family will help you. But you’ve got to want it.” • Keep your head up. “You have to keep working. Even when you 100% mess up, you have to look past it. There’s another day tomorrow. Success will come your way if you want it bad enough.

In nine years, Steven says he’s gone from praying he doesn’t stand last in a county fair class to being competitive at national shows. “It’s been a lot of taking pieces of knowledge away from everybody,” he says. “Take advice when you can get it and keep asking the right questions.”

Taking advice In addition to Steven’s parents, who have supported him since the beginning making sure he had every tool needed to succeed, he remembers others who have taught him over the years. Bill Doig from Indiana was first to invest in Steven. “He took me under his wing and showed me how to feed show cattle,” he says. “He’d watch me clip, and would give tips and explained why.” Doug LeTourneau from Tennessee taught Steven the importance of good presentation. “His best advice was, ‘People won’t remember how you did in the ring, but they will remember your presence in the stalls,’” Steven recalls. “This is definitely something that has led to the herdsman award as I work to keep stalls well-presented and have a positive attitude.” More recently, Steven says he’s learned a tremendous amount about running a seedstock operation from Dale Venhuizen at Churchill Cattle Co. in Manhattan, Mont. Steven has worked for Dale on a short-term basis at the National Western Stock Show and in preparation for Churchill Cattle Co. sales. “He’s been a huge influence,”

Hereford.org

Steven says. “He’s probably got sick of me asking questions, but he’s served as a cornerstone for me and projected me toward winning the award.”

More than banners As much as he enjoys working with Hereford cattle, Steven says it’s the network he’s formed in the industry he appreciates so much. “Showing cattle gives you a marketing opportunity, but to me, it’s really about the Hereford family, and you’re going to miss out on that if you don’t show,” he says. “There are so many good people within our Hereford industry. When you put in a lot of hard work, you want to see success, but showing cattle is not just about winning.” While earning a banner isn’t everything to Steven, he has enjoyed

increasing success in the showring. His earliest favorite memory showing Herefords was standing second at his county fair with his first Hereford heifer. “I was grinning from ear to ear to have done that well,” he says. A notable win, he says, is taking home supreme champion bull at the Kentucky State Fair junior show with a bull his family had raised. Steven also exhibited the champion Hereford female at the Kentucky State Fair in 2015 and 2016. The 2015 win was an emotional experience for Steven. “My roommate and good friend at the time at school had thyroid cancer,” he says. “I had a moment with God, we’re doing this for Seth, and sure enough she won. We had more concerns than winning a banner continued on page 78...

2017 JNHE Herdsman of the Year

Herdsman finalists Carter St. John is the 20-year-old son of Joy and the late Kent St. John. He is from Pell City, Ala., and has been showing Hereford cattle for 12 years. Carter notes winning reserve intermediate showman at the 2014 JNHE as one of his biggest accomplishments. He is a sophomore at Jefferson State Community College and upon graduation plans to transfer to Auburn University to pursue his dream career as an embryologist. Carter’s long-term goal is to stay involved in the cattle industry and to run his own Hereford operation. Keayla Harr, the 20-year-old daughter of Jeff and Lou Ellen Harr, is from Jeromesville, Ohio. She recently graduated from Casper College in Casper, Wyo., and currently attends Kansas State University as an animal science major with an emphasis in ruminant nutrition. Keayla has been showing for 13 years and aspires to keep making the Hereford breed better. She is proud to be a mentor to younger exhibitors and hopes to continue to help in the cattle industry for many years to come. Jacob Moore, Madill, Okla., is the 22-year-old son of Craig and Freda Moore, and is currently a student at Oklahoma State University. Jacob has been showing cattle for more than 12 years and has been a NJHA member for six years. His proudest moment was watching his brother and sister compete against one another in the JNHE showmanship finals last year in Madison, Wis. Although he didn’t make finals himself, he was happy to be supporting his siblings and watching their success in the showring. Jacob’s biggest goal within the show industry is to always remain positive, even in difficult times. Austin Deppe, of Maquoketa, Iowa, is the 22-year-old son of John and Joell Deppe. He recently graduated from Kansas State University with a bachelor’s degree in animal science. Austin has been showing since age 10 and has stayed involved in the Hereford industry. Currently, he is working on his family’s operation that consists of 450 commercial cattle, 60 head of Herefords, a feedlot, and an extensive ET program. Austin is proud of his family’s accomplishments in the showring, especially winning reserve champion steer at the 2013 JNHE and raising the champion steer last year. He is thankful for the connections he’s developed within the industry and looks forward to continued breed improvement. Emily Beanblossom, of Bradford, Ohio, is the 22-year-old daughter of Steve and Leesa Beanblossom. She recently graduated from Ohio State University where she majored in animal science and minored in agricultural communications. Currently, Emily works for a beef embryologist in Alexandria, Ohio. Her goal is to maintain a career in beef genetics and reproductive sciences. As a 15-year retiring NJHA member, Emily’s proudest moment was passing down the showing tradition in Louisville as her oldest sister and oldest nephew attended their first show.

that year. He got through the cancer and some has come back, so I have a feeling this year could be similar.”

Just getting started Though his junior show career is coming to a close, Steven has big plans to stay in the industry. A Western Kentucky University animal science graduate, Steven is preparing to apply for veterinary school. “It’s always been a dream to have a Hereford farm, and I want to take advantage of the reproductive technology we have, and vet school will help if I become an embryologist,” he says. “I want to turn a lot of our commercial cows in to recips and push out our Hereford program. I want to be someone people look to, especially in our area, for bulls and females. When someone wants to buy replacement heifers, we want to be the first in their mind.” Dale Venhuizen believes Steven can do just that. “He has a combination of abilities and traits that really could propel him far no matter what he’s in,” Dale says. “He’s passionate about Herefords and people, and he has the genuine personality, honesty and integrity to be exceptional.” Steven says it’s a blessing to be honored with this award. “I didn’t grow up with a few generations of Hereford cattle behind me,” he says. “We got in to it a lot later than most. To go from struggling to figure it out to being named Junior Herdsman of the Year is a huge honor and blessing. Who would have thought that in that short amount of time, I could be where I am today.” He adds that winning this award wouldn’t have been possible without the help of his fiancé, Lauren Meredith. “She works just as hard on the cattle, and took care of them all week for me when I was busy with NJHA board responsibilities. It meant just as much to her as it did me. It’s a blessing to see Hereford industry recognize the passion my family and I have for the breed. We’re just getting started.”

2017 JNHE Senior Showman

On Her Game Poise and intensity steered Brooke Jensen to the grand champion senior showman title. by Haley Stark

F

or many young adults, summer is the mark of fun in the sun, free time and a break from schoolwork, but for 21-year-old Brooke Jensen, Courtland, Kan., summer was time to buckle down, work heifers and aim high to achieve her goal of becoming grand champion senior showman at the 2017 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE).

80

| September 2017

It’s the week of JNHE, and as a member of the National Junior Hereford Association board of directors, she arrives early to help with the big event. Brooke is consumed with nerves as her plane descends into Louisville, Ky. She knows it will be a long and anxious week, but she trusts the time and hard work she’s invested will finally pay off.

It’s showmanship day, and she makes the top 10 in the senior division. Throughout the rest of the day, she can’t bear to look at, much less eat, any food, and she avoids any conversation about the final drive that’s quickly approaching. Yet, Brooke’s nerves nearly vanish as the timer is started for the fitting portion of the competition. She and nine other competitive exhibitors get to work fitting and preparing their cattle in the chutes — Brooke is focused on the task at hand. Suddenly she’s on a roll, her hands work in muscle memory and fitting becomes a rhythm. She finishes early, waters her heifer and calmly backs her out of the chute. Her heifer must have picked up on her focused energy too — Brooke and her animal entered the showring as one. “Once we were in the ring, she worked perfect for me. I knew she was on the mission with me,” Brooke recalls. She navigated the ring relaxed and composed, but never once dropped her intensity that demanded, ‘Hey, I’m here to win.’” As the judges place the remaining showmen, working from 10th place and up, the anticipation and excitement build within Brooke. Finally, it is between her and one other showman. The judges shake the reserve champion senior showman’s hand and from behind him, Brooke’s face lights up. She immediately is overcome with emotion as she realizes her dream has just come true. Fighting back tears of joy and still in shock, Brooke leads her

heifer to the backdrop. Many years and countless hours of hard work and dedication flash before her eyes as she realizes her dream is now a reality — Brooke is named grand champion senior showman.

It runs in the blood Brooke claims her background in the livestock industry started long before she was even born. Her mother, originally from Canada, grew up around cattle, raising Simmentals and Herefords and showing competitively across both the United States and Canada. In fact, Brooke’s grandfather helped start the Canadian Junior Hereford Association and was recognized for his service the same week Brooke exhibited at her final JNHE. Brooke’s father dove into the agricultural industry as he became actively involved in youth organizations, livestock judging and starting his own ”Jensen Fitting Service.” As a young child, Brooke spent much of her time attending cattle shows and supporting her older brother, Brady, in the showring. She first attended JNHE when she was only 4 years old and has only missed one JNHE since then when it was hosted in Mississippi. She started showing at 7 years old. Prioritizing showmanship stands as a family tradition for the Jensens. “Showmanship is something my family has taken great pride in for a long time,” Brooke says. “We’ve always tried to make a name for ourselves in raising our cattle to be sound, functional and impactful to the industry, but showmanship was somewhere we always worked to be individually successful in achieving our goals.” She realized she would have big shoes to fill, as Brooke’s father won senior showmanship as a junior Hereford exhibitor and her older brother followed in pursuit, achieving the champion title in 2013. “Not only is it hard work paying off, but it’s also a natural gift as a cattleman that has been passed onto me, Brooke says. “We all work together in working

with our cattle. It’s something we have driven for as a family. I’m honored to have the title and share it will my family as well. I truly could not do it without them.” But Brooke didn’t just wake up one day with the polished skills needed to win in the showmanship ring; they are something she worked tirelessly for. She credits her third year showing, when she was merely 9 years old, for igniting her fire to win in the showring. That year Brooke showed the champion cow-calf pair and the champion steer and was recognized as the champion peewee showman. “I got a taste of success for the hard work my family had invested that summer, and I soon made a goal for myself to accomplish a top 10 finish and achieve reserve or champion showman in every age division,” Brooke explains. “I’m fortunate to say I was successful in that and I was at least reserve, if not champion, in each age bracket as I got older.” Her journey to the top didn’t come without trial and error, however, and Brooke soon realized the final drive of senior showmanship offered unprecedented competition. She humorously recalls the effect her uncontrollable nerves had on her the first time she made the top 10 in 2014. “When I was coming out of the chute I forgot my show stick up against the panel so I had to stretch really far to even get it,” she laughs. “You work

through those mistakes though and learn from them.” Brooke’s first year in the senior age division, she finished in seventh place. The following year, she again made top 10 and almost achieved her goal, achieving reserve champion senior showman. In 2016 she again received a chance to compete in the top 10 and was recognized in fourth place. It wasn’t until her fourth year that Brooke finally accomplished the prestigious title of champion senior showman.

Fierce competition Brooke is quick to point out just how hard and challenging the competition truly is and says making the top 10 is a huge honor in itself. Fondly, she revisits the moment she won. Brooke kept telling herself “stay calm, stay intense, stay calm,” as the judges began selecting 10th through sixth places. She notes how quickly those placings were filled, but then time seemed to slow down as the judges moved to sorting the top five showmen. As Brooke maintained her composure the judges made their final considerations. For Brooke, her showmanship style was established outside the ring long before it was executed in the ring. She describes her style as calm and poised, yet intense. She strives to stay in sync with her animal and often talks softly to her heifers to calm them. This summer, Brooke had continued on page 82...

2017 JNHE Senior Showman the added challenge of balancing an internship in Arkansas and going home on weekends to work cattle. She credits her family greatly for the support of her future career, while still allowing her to chase her dreams in the showring. Brooke and her family rinsed cattle one to two times a day, and she takes 15 to 20 minutes a day when she’s home to get each one of her cattle in the rhythm of how she likes to show. Yet, as natural as she looks next to her heifer, there’s no mistaking the intense charisma Brooke exudes in the ring.

Humble and thankful Behind the scenes, and out of Brooke’s sight as she received the champion

handshake, were her parents’ and other family members’ priceless reactions. Not long after she won, Brooke was greeted by her family and caught in an emotional embrace with her father. With a humble heart, however, Brooke is quick to point out the monumental influence her parents have on her, serving as her greatest role models. “My mom is the backbone of our family. She gets us out of bed when we don’t want to, she keeps us motivated and reminds us why we do what we do. She is truly the behind the scenes.” Brooke says. “My dad is the wisest cattleman I know. He cares so deeply for the livestock industry, and making him proud is all I could ever hope for.”

Advice from the champion Grand champion showman Brooke Jensen gives a few tips for Hereford youth. Posture and poise. “Stand up straight and be one with your animal. Know how to control your animal in every environment. Stay composed in the ring” Don’t over-do it. “Don’t dress to distract. Be modest and professional, because you don’t want to take away from your animal.” Stay educated. “Don’t just know about your animal’s details, take time to understand and be aware of what’s going on in the industry like the ups and downs in the markets, challenges in cattle productions, EPDs and genomics — generally topics you need to understand as you get more involved in the industry.” Stay involved, get involved. “We have so many programs and contests that help individuals get involved, network and build relationships. You’ll be thankful you took hold of those opportunities because they make you a better person.”

82

| September 2017

Brooke has also worked to give back to the organization and industry that helped make her who she is today. From 2013 to 2014, she served as the National Hereford Queen. “That pretty much sealed the deal for me, and serving as queen was an amazing honor as it allowed me to network within the senior and junior associations,” she explains. “It’s rewarding experience further pushed my decision to run for the NJHA board of directors after my term as queen.” Brooke was elected to the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board in 2015 and is serving as vice chairman. Brooke’s younger brother has a few more years of showing, and since the Jensens go to the JNHE as a family every year, Brooke promises to be there to support him. “He’s sure helped me the past few years as I’ve been away at school,” she says. Brooke plans to stay actively involved in the association. “I owe a lot of success to those programs. I will still raise cattle. I have a great cow herd now and I want to maintain that,” she says. Currently Brooke is a senior at Kansas State University and will graduate in December. She already has big goals for her future career in agriculture. Her passion lies within agribusiness, where she hopes to help put more beef products on the shelf, driving that business forward and educate consumers from farm to fork. Brooke’s ultimate goal is to make a difference in the industry that gave her a purpose and inspired her to find success.

2017 JNHE Queen Service Project

A Greater Purpose National Hereford Queen rallies support for a Texas junior member. by Haley Stark

P

oised and elegant with a beautiful crown and big smile, National Hereford Queen Annah Dobson was certainly a familiar face at the 2017 VitaFerm® Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), as she lead in classes,

passed out awards and inspired younger girls. Yet, there’s more to Annah than her royalty. Beneath her snow white attire is a heart of gold, a heart that wanted to make an impact within her community. Annah first got the idea for her service project in April 2017, when she became aware of a fellow National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) member, Randi Williams, who was severely injured in a car accident. The 16-year-old is also a member of the Texas Junior Hereford Association and served as Texas Hereford royalty for two years. Randi has bravely gone through more than seven surgeries following the accident, with more potential surgeries looming in the future, and she has recently begun physical therapy.

National Hereford Queen Annah Dobson raised money through her service project, Share a Crown for Randi, for fellow NJHA member Randi Williams who was severely injured in a car accident.

| September 2017

“Since she’s part of the Hereford family, I thought it would be a great way to give back to her,” Annah says. “What better way to help out one of our own royalties than at JNHE.” Annah called her 2017 service project “Share a Crown for Randi.” She sold paper crowns in different sizes and cost increments in the ShopHereford booth. These crowns were then decorated and displayed throughout JNHE. She also encouraged members to use the hashtag #WilliamsStrong and #ShareACrownForRandi. “We wanted to display these crowns throughout the week to show our support to Randi and how we’re with her through some of the more difficult times in her life that she’s had to face,” Annah explains. As JNHE came to a close, Annah presented the decorated crowns to Randi and her family along with the $600 she raised through her service project.

Randi Williams and her family received decorated paper crowns and $600 from National Hereford Queen Annah Dobson, from funds raised throughout JNHE.

2017 JNHE Junior Q&A

Ringside Chats Youth exhibitors offer advice and share their favorite Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) memories. by Haley Stark Favorite part of JNHE: It was getting a callback in showmanship. It was my first time in JNHE showring — I was a little nervous but showmanship is my favorite part.

Favorite part of JNHE: I met a lot of cool people at the wash rack while getting sprayed. Easiest part of JNHE: Meeting new people. Hardest part of JNHE: Getting enough sleep.

Hardest part of JNHE: Being sleep deprived all the time!

Most important thing to bring to a show: A good attitude!

Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: I learned that you have to be very, very prepared. You have to have everything you’re going to need to compete. Also, when you have a bigger state it’s more fun. I’m moving from New York to Kansas, and I’m really excited to be a part of the Kansas association.

Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Once you do that, it makes everything better and more enjoyable.

Maddie Stitzlein

Sam Birdsall

Glenmont, Ohio 14 years old 3rd JNHE

Homer, N.Y. 12 years old 6th JNHE

Favorite part of JNHE: Showmanship, because you see how you’re doing and how other people are doing. It takes a lot of hard work, you have to work everyday at home and practice setting them up. My heifer, Molly, was really good for me in showmanship.

Haley Cranwell Eaton, N.Y. 12 years old 1st JNHE

Favorite part of JNHE: At JNHE I competed in showmanship, individual sales, team sales, livestock judging, illustrated talk, and quiz bowl. My favorite contest is illustrated speech. I used to be very shy, but I’ve done an illustrated speech since my 2nd JNHE, and now I’m more confident talking in front of people.

The most important thing to bring to JNHE: The cows!

Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: Practice with your heifer or steer at home!

Ben Jensen Courtland, Kan. 17 years old 10th JNHE

Favorite JNHE memory: Getting to see my sister win senior showmanship this year, finally after four years. Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: When you’re not working, try to make as many friends as possible because those could be industry connections you’ll have for the rest of your life. One thing you’ve improved in because of attending and participating at JNHE: I’ve improved in public speaking because I’ve done illustrated speech, then moved into extemporaneous speech and team sales. Those contests really helped me a lot. Most challenging part of JNHE: I’d say balancing working with the cattle, having free time and enjoying the show with getting enough sleep.

Something you wish you would have known before you showed at JNHE for the first time: That it’s okay to ask questions, and everyone’s here to help you; we’re all a Hereford family, especially the national directors. If you have questions or your confused or scared they’re more than happy to answer your questions. Most challenging part of JNHE: I think the hardest part is actually getting to JNHE. There’s always the anticipation and car rides, especially coming from Texas. It takes the most time to get out of our own state. Favorite part of JNHE and why: My personal favorite is the extemporaneous speech contest. I’ve competed in that contest every year, and I’ve been fortunate enough to win every time I’ve competed. It’s the contest I look the most forward to. Something you’ve improved in since showing at JNHE: Most definitely showmanship! At first I was completely clueless, although I had the best people to help me out. Practice makes perfect, and now I look forward to it every year. Most important thing to bring to a show: A good attitude because you never know what’s going to happen. Every judge has his own opinion, things can go wrong, so you just have to come with a positive attitude ready to have fun and learn. Advice you would give to someone about JNHE: Keep your head up. Don’t be afraid because when you have confidence people will notice, especially when you’re in the showring. It’s easier to make friends when you’re smiling, laughing and having a good time.

Favorite part of JNHE: Hanging out with friends and showing my heifer — it was fun! She gave me a hard time in showmanship but worked well in her class. Favorite JNHE contest: The livestock judging contest is my favorite. My friend and I were on a junior team that got second overall. We were pretty surprised, but excited because it was my first year as a junior so we went up against a bunch of older kids.

Savannah West

Channing, Texas 18 years old 7th JNHE

Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: Have fun as long as you can — showing doesn’t last forever.

Blue Rapids, Kan. 15 years old 9th JNHE

Most important thing to bring to JNHE: Friends and family because JNHE wouldn’t be any fun without them. Most challenging part of JNHE: Getting your heifer fit right before the show is the hardest. It’s always a rush, so you have to make sure you have plenty of time.

Wesley Denton

Favorite JNHE memory: My favorite heifer was a class winner, so we got to go back in for division, and I got a callback in showmanship with her. Advice you would give to someone showing at JNHE for the first time: Have fun and make friends — it’s what makes JNHE fun!

Dustin Denton

Blue Rapids, Kan. 11 years old 5th JNHE

Hereford.org

Most challenging part of JNHE: Getting all the cattle ready to go for their classes. We try to estimate the time for each class so we know when to get the cattle up. Our whole family works together and communicates with each other to get it done. One thing you’ve improved in because of attending and participating at JNHE: I’ve become more calm in the showring and I’m better at making the cattle look the best they can in the ring.

2017 JNHE Photo Contest

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Hereford Cattle ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Picture Perfect National Junior Hereford Association members strive to capture the perfect shot in photo contest. by Haley Stark

Outside of the picturesque moments captured in the showring during the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE), junior members make their mark in the realm of photography through the JNHE photo contest. These young photographers realize executing the perfect shot goes far beyond simply pointing and shooting — they consider lighting, unique angles and photo quality and strive to express them in creative ways. Each year the National junior Hereford Association (NJHA) and Hereford World sponsor a contest for junior members with an interest in photography. The 2017 JNHE contest had 225 entries in four age divisions and three categories — Hereford cattle, people and enhanced. From peewee to senior divisions, the judges were impressed with the invested talent, creativity and passion displayed throughout each photograph. The judges felt the quality represented in the photo contest was outstanding. For them, seeing the creativity the exhibitors conveyed and brought to life was a highlight of the contest. They also enjoyed seeing growth and interest in the enhanced category and were impressed with how exhibitors chose to edit their photos while still showing their passion for Hereford cattle. For exhibitors interested in the photo contest next year, the judges advise keeping the experience and content fun. They also suggest the key to success is telling a story with the exhibitors’ photos.

From the Field In Celebration Allison Hawkins and Brady Jensen were married July 1 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Rosemount, Minn. The reception was hosted at the InterContinental Hotel in St. Paul. The bride is the daughter of Jeff and Diane Hawkins of Inver Grove Heights, Minn. Allison graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in applied economics. Following graduation, she worked as a hog buyer for Hormel Foods in Austin, Minn. The groom is the son of Kevin and Sheila Jensen of Courtland, Kan. He graduated from Kansas State University with a bachelor’s degree in animal science and a minor in agribusiness. Following graduation, he earned his master’s degree from Kansas State University in animal breeding and genetics while assisting the livestock judging team. The couple will live in Brookings, S.D. Brady will be employed by South Dakota State University as the livestock judging coach and as a professor in the animal science department. Jack and Cheryl Evans of Fredonia, Kan., celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 26. Jack served as president of the American Hereford Association (AHA) in 2007. His wife was also involved in the AHA and is a former president of American Hereford Women.

In the News Research Suggests Quality of U.S. Beef Supply Is Improving Data from the 2016 National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA) suggests the beef industry continues to improve the quality of its products, but there is still room for more improvement. Results from the research were presented at a session during the 2017 Cattle Industry Summer Meeting in Denver, Colo., on July 13. The research, funded by the Beef Checkoff Program, has been conducted every five years for the past quarter century. NBQA results through the years have helped lead to improvements in cattle and beef production, including reductions in carcass blemishes and fewer lost opportunities related to branding and other practices. Among the positive findings in the 2016 NBQA are a significant increase in Choice and Prime carcasses, a high mobility score for cattle entering packing plants and the fact that the number of blemishes, condemnations and other attributes that impact animal value remain small. Among areas for possible improvement are bruising and liver quality. “The research proved the beef cattle industry has a great story to tell, but also suggests we aren’t getting that story to as many people as we should,” says Josh White, executive director of producer education for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff Program. “Utilizing the Beef Quality Assurance program and its principles ... could not only enhance industry commitment to better beef but would help increase consumer confidence and encourage greater beef demand.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

The True ‘Win’ By many show families’ standards, the Lee family had a disappointing Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Louisville, Ky., this year. It began with our boys, Waylon and Nolan, giving their speeches as flawlessly as they’d ever presented those speeches. They had each spent hours perfecting their lines and gestures preparing for the questions to come. As Waylon left the speech contest room, I told him that was the best job he had ever done. He nailed the questions, which were tough, and it would take a great one to beat him. Nolan competed in the peewee division, so all are recognized for their participation. But Waylon? He didn’t place in the junior division contest. In the showmanship contest on Tuesday, Nolan and his senior yearling, Princess, worked flawlessly together. Most times, we can provide a critique of what could have been done differently — ways he could improve. But this time? The team was spot on. However, the stars didn’t align for them in this competitive class, and Nolan and Princess didn’t make the cut out of their heat. When it was time for Princess to be shown in her class, she looked good and worked like a dream for our boy. But she was up against incredibly tough competition. She placed in the top half of the class, and Nolan was happy. It was where she belonged. Throughout the week we visited with many friends who were experiencing

various levels of success. The one thing I learned is success truly is in the eye of the beholder. For some, having two division winners was an “OK” year. For others, not standing in the bottom hole was an accomplishment.

Defining success Success takes on a different meaning, depending on your past experiences and current expectations. The Lee family didn’t bring home much in the way of winnings this year — other than one peewee photography division winner and a second-place peewee judging team finish for Nolan. But I promise you, the Lees experienced success of their own. Waylon’s speech contest experience was a tough one, but he learned through the experience he can’t give up. He could have gotten down on himself and the experience. Yes, he was disappointed, and we had to work through that with him. But what he eventually realized is he can use that experience to strengthen his resolve, to continually improve and to work even harder next year. It’s not an easy lesson to learn — especially at only 12 years

old — but this skill will only help him as he ventures into adulthood and the competition he will inevitably face. In showmanship and in his class, Nolan could have been disappointed. He’s a competitive kid — and really, who of us doesn’t like to win? However, after his initial discouragement following showmanship, Nolan realized he and Princess did the best job they could do. Some kids make the cut, and some don’t. He resolved to keep the faith and to keep working hard, and maybe, just maybe, next time could be different for him. But perhaps the coolest “win” of the week? Cattlemen we respect noticing the work and effort our 9-year-old puts into his cattle. Several friends took a few moments to offer advice and encouragement. To them, it could have been a small gesture, but to Nolan these comments were huge and were just the encouragement he needed to continue putting in the effort. It may not result in a purple ribbon, at least not right now. But those few moments invested in our child will most certainly help him to develop into a hardworking adult. There’s truly no greater reward. Maybe the awards and accolades will come — the competitive spirit in this momma sure hopes so. But let’s not forget the wins that can come beyond the showring. They’re not the wins that are noticed just passing by. But they most definitely will result in success within our children. What could be better?
