From the Desk.. Greetings! The year 2018 is off to an excellent start for the Brahman industry. There is much to be enthused and excited about! We’ve experienced well-attended Board meetings and great events at major stock shows. Markets are positive, demand for quality animals is high and at the time of this writing, the anticipated participation and attendance at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is inspiring by any standard. We look forward to seeing everyone and making new friendships so please come by the ABBA Booth and meet your team!

With strong membership input and encouragement, your ABBA Board of Directors and Executive Committee have continued to initiate significant steps to improve the Registry System. Specifically, the work will be done here in the U.S.A. in a team approach between the ABBA staff in Houston and Livestock Genetic Services, LLC in Virginia. This company is headed by Dr. John Genho, an energetic leader in the field of beef cattle performance programs. He is a trusted colleague and is already a tremendous asset to the Brahman breed. He will be with us at the ABBA booth in Houston and available to answer many of the questions that you may have. We encourage you to meet him! You will find him to be approachable, articulate and a patient teacher. Additionally, you will be able see a demonstration on the new ABBA Registry System and can sign up for the online registry.

In parallel with the change of our registry and performance data service provider is the recent postponement of the DNA rule which required DNA Parentage Verification. This is not to diminish the need for the technology, but a needed “step-back” to let our registry program catch up to the technology that is evolving and becoming increasingly accurate. While change can have fits and starts, there will come a time in the not-too-distant future when it seems seamless and effortless. The teams of professionals with GeneSeek and Zoetis are valuable partners in this effort. We are fortunate to have the strong working relationships and open communication that we enjoy with them. I want to encourage you to notice a new venue for the International Brahman Sale as well as the ABBA Meet and Greet social. The consignors, International Committee members and countless individuals have worked hard to provide a safe yet festive and successful atmosphere for this great event! Everyone is invited to attend! Please take a look at the schedule of events in the Brahman Journal. On behalf of Armelinda, Teresa, Laura and Edie – Welcome to Houston! We look forward to seeing you!! Safe travels –

Bill Bunce

Recent ABBA Board Meeting Highlights POSTPONEMENT OF ABBA DNA RULES FOR 1 YEAR

The DNA and Parent Verification Rules that went into effect on January 1, 2017, have been postponed and reset to the old rules that were in effect as of December 31, 2016. The postponement will last until the Winter Board Meeting of January 2019, at which time a plan for reinstatement will be determined beginning with Embryo Transfer Calves. The ABBA Registry System will no longer require DNA Parent Verification for E.T. calves to process Registration Papers. The ABBA encourages all members to take advantage of this postponement period by continuing to submit DNA samples on all animals including but not limited to donor dams, herd sires, replacement females, and any cattle deemed important to the future of your program. Please work to resolve any outstanding DNA issues and ensure that all held-up Registrations are received from the ABBA Office. Use this transition period to be better prepared for the future reinstatement of DNA Parent Verification Rules beginning in 2019.

AGED COW MORATORIUM

There is an Aged Cattle Registration Moratorium in effect from 03/01/2018 to 08/31/2018 for cattle over 24 months of age.

RED/GRAY RULE

The previous (computer generated) Color Rule has been changed and the ABBA Registry System has been reset to allow the breeder to determine the color of an animal at the time of registration. Any member wishing to change the color designation of an animal that was previously assigned a color by the old computer method may return the Original Certificate to the ABBA Office to have the corrections made for a fee of $5.00 per transaction.  Check the website soon for a posting of the official new Color Rule (color-chart method).  The new Color Rule (color-chart method) will go into effect starting at the International Show in Houston this year.  Editor’s Note: Turn to page 35 to read more about the new color rule.

ABBA Show Committee Announces Weight & Measurement Parameters & Rules for the 2018 International Brahman Show In an effort to improve the uniformity of the showring, the ABBA Show Committee recently met and approved the Weight and Measurement Parameters for the 2018 International Brahman Show to be held during the Houston Livestock Show. The weight and measure parameters were derived by a Weighing and Measuring Sub-Committee who reviewed weights and measures from previous International, National and All American Shows. The parameters were then reviewed by the entire Show Committee and the Board of Directors and the feeling was that the parameters were quite liberal but would effectively eliminate those cattle that are too large or too small to conform to today’s industry standards. The Show Committee will continue to monitor the weights and hip heights at the conclusion of each show and has the option to adjust these as needed. The following are the rules associated with the weight and measurement program: 1. Cattle at the 2018 International Show will be weighed on Tuesday, February 27 at 7:00 AM (prior to the show March 1-2).

All animals in the Calf and Intermediate divisions must meet the weight and measure parameters at the International Brahman Show. Any animal that exceeds the weight and measurements parameters at the National, International or any other show that has official weights and measures, that animal will be ineligible for that show and any other approved ABBA shows until the next show that weights and measures are taken when they can requalify. If an animal who weighs or measures out and shows before requalifying, that animal will be disqualified for the remainder of their show career. Any animal that does not meet the weight or measurement parameter must be re-weighed or remeasured immediately after coming off the scale only one time at the scale previously weighed/measured on for qualification. The hip height measurement will be taking directly over the hook bone.

Welcome

Dear Brahman Enthusiasts:

On behalf of the American Brahman Breeders Association, we invite you to the 2018 International Brahman Sale. We are very excited about this year’s offering as we have assembled an amazing set of Brahman females along with some tremendous genetic opportunities. If you have been searching for elite show genetics and/or cattle with performance traits that will complement your current breeding program, then look no further. Take time to look through this catalog and take advantage of the great opportunities being offered by some of the top breeders in the Brahman industry to add strength and elite genetics to your herd. As in past sales we have videoed the offerings for further inspection of the cattle. The videos and sale catalog can be viewed at www. brahman.org. If you are not able to attend the sale on Wednesday, February 28, we encourage you to view and bid online through Cattle In Motion at www.cattleinmotion.com.

Please note that this year’s sale will be in a new venue with a modified schedule of events. On the day of the sale, the pre-sale cattle viewing will be in the Green Section next to the East Arena in the NRG Center starting at 4:30 PM. The Pre-Sale Cocktail Party and Meet and Greet will begin at 5:30 PM in the East Arena and will be followed by the sale at 7:00 PM.

Immediately before the sale, we invite you to join us at the ABBA International Meet and Greet party in the East Arena. The ABBA, along with our sponsors Brushy Creek Custom Sires, Elgin Breeding Services and Transova, have a great event planned with food, drink and entertainment. After the party we will move directly into the sale in the same arena. So the East Arena will be the place to be in the afternoon and evening on Wednesday, February 28! One of the secrets of a successful breeding program is being ready when the opportunity presents itself to add elite genetics to your herd. This sale will certainly provide you with amazing genetic opportunities. So, come out, enjoy the camaraderie and seize this special opportunity to enhance your breeding program! If we can provide you additional information about any of these sale lots or you would like us to assist you in any way, please give the consignors a call or contact the ABBA office at 713-349-0854.

LADY DOUCET 96

Selling 50% embryo interest and no possession This big league donor is the result of blending only the finest genetics possible to create the very best results. She is from the 2013 National Champion and 2014 International Champion, JDH Lady Babette Manso 486/4. Babette is sired by the National Champion and globally utilized +JDH Mr. Elmo Manso 309/4 and out of the Register of Renown dam that combines the proven +JDH Brandon Manso with a Maternal Merit Cow. This female is sired by #Three D Platinum, a polled ½ Hudgins x ½ Australian bred sire. She offers a complete outcross and elite pedigree to many of today’s polled genetics. She is ideal in her design and phenotype, and meets all of our requirements when it comes to structural correctness and soundness. Moreno Ms. Polled Perla is a smooth polled female that will serve as a major catalyst in the positive movement of creating only the finest in polled genetics at Moreno Ranches. A full sister to Moreno Ms. Polled Perla was a highlight in the recent All American Summer Sale and was purchased by one of the leading polled Brahman breeders: La Muneca Cattle Co., Linn, TX with Luis Flores III., Linn, TX. Moreno Ranches currently ranks #3 in terms of registrations with the ABBA and they are ever growing. The excitement around this female from those that have already seen her is quite exciting. Only good things are yet to come when you consider all the positive traits surrounding this gorgeous donor prospect. Moreno Ranches welcomes a partner on this elite female and are excited about building a legacy around this cornerstone donor prospect.

NEW Color Classification Rule, effective 2018 During the ABBA Show Committee Meeting held in Fort Worth January 15, the ABBA adopted the following color classification rule. It will be effective in 2018 and will apply to cattle shown at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo International Brahman Show. If you have questions, contact the ABBA office at 713-349-0854.

At the time of registration, the breeder shall select the animal’s color based upon the predominant physical coloring of the animal’s hair. For nonshow animals, this is the extent of classification. For animals exhibited in ABBA approved shows, the following rules will apply: 1. The ABBA color chart will serve as the official breed resource for identifying the proper hair coat of registered Brahman cattle (see charts). 2. In order to show in the red show, an animal must have a minimum of 3 red ancestors in their 3-generation pedigree. An animal with less than 7 out of 14 red ancestors in the 3-generation pedigree may not show until color classified. 3. Animals will be color classified by the ABBA Color Committee in order to compete at the International, National, KickOff Classic and All American shows. The Show Committee also has the right to color classify at any ABBA Approved Show unannounced. 4. The ABBA Color Committee shall consist of 3 primary members and 2 alternates, all with experience in the beef industry and with at least 2 of the members being ABBA directors that are non-showing members. The committee will be appointed by the ABBA President and will serve for the full show year. 5. Animals will be color classified by their predominant hair color based on the ABBA color chart.

6. Only if an animal is unable to be classified based upon the ABBA color chart, the animal’s pedigree may be used to aid in color classification. 7. Once classified, the animal’s paper will be stamped with the color classification and remain in that classification throughout their show career. Appeals can be sent to the Executive Committee within 30 days. 8. If any animal is reclassified by the Color Committee, the ABBA must provide corrected papers to the current owner of that animal within 30 days of the reclassification at the owner’s expense. 9. Animals shown in group classes must show in the group class of the registered color of their sire for the Get-of-Sire and the registered color of their dam for the Produce-of-Dam (ET and Natural). 10. Both the exhibitor and owner of an animal that is shown in the wrong color division after being color classified will be ineligible to show any animals for 13 months following the infraction. The animal in violation will be disqualified for its entire show career and will forfeit all Register of Renown points. 11. Any ABBA member or exhibitor has the right to protest the color classification of any animal at any ABBA Approved Show to the Show Committee in writing within 30 days. Any animals already stamped with a color classification will not be reclassified.

The pages above are the Show Ring Color Charts that were proposed during the Show Committee Meeting and are referenced in section one of the new rule. Turn to pages 36 & 38 to see enlarged versions.

r e t n i ABBA 2017W NEWS

Brahman Trait Leaders The following trait leader information was provided by the American Brahman Breeders Association. Contact the ABBA office for a printed sire summary or visit BrahmanJournal.com to view this document as a PDF. Also, if you have any photos we are missing on any of the top trait leaders please e-mail them to info@brahmanjournal.com and we will add them to our online version.

ACCURACY

Accuracy for an EPD may range from 0.0 to 1.0. As the accuracy approaches 1.0, the EPD is more reliable and changes less in the future as more data is accumulated. Accuracy can be rated as follows: LOW - 0.0 to .50; MEDIUM - .51 to .75; HIGH - .76 to 1.0.

CONTEMPORARY GROUPS

The effects of contemporary groups are adjusted for in the analysis procedure. This results in the EPD’s being computed as though all animals were in one large contemporary group. This is the reason the EPD’s can be compared across herds. The proper identification of the contemporary in which an animal is raised is of utmost importance for an accurate evaluation of the animal and its parents. Breeders should be aware of the definition of a contemporary group: 1) Animals of the same sex. 2) Animals of similar age (try to keep animals within 180 day birth date spread) and 3) Animals managed together and given equal opportunity to perform (re. same pasture, same feed, same weigh dates, etc.). Producers need to send the ABBA complete information on the management of their cattle so that contemporary groups can be properly assigned. Most inaccuracies in NCE programs have been linked to misidentification of contemporary groups.

2017 ABBA TRAIT LEADERS

The following sires are the 2017 Winter ABBA Trait Leaders for Maternal Birth Weight, Birth Weight, Weaning Weight, Yearling Weight, Milk, Scrotal Circumference, Hot Carcass Weight, Ribeye Area, Marbling Score, Adjusted 12th Rib Fat Thickness, Percent Retail Yield, Warner Bratzler Shear/Tenderness and Docility. In order for a bull to be recognized as a Trait Leader he must have met the specific requirements set forth by the American Brahman Breeders Association. First, only bulls that have the designated accuracy for the specific trait are considered. Once the sire has met the accuracy requirement he must be within the top 20 of the breed in the respective trait and have had at least one progeny registered within the previous two years. This process is many times misinterpreted as simply listing the top 20 bulls for a trait however, only proven bulls are able to be considered as Trait Leaders. When using EPD’s as a tool to help in the sire selection process it is important to remember to select a balanced bull with acceptable ranges for all traits rather than selecting a bull for one desired trait as this can yield a less than optimum outcome. ....CONTINUED ON PAGE 22

TRAITS INCLUDED FOR CARCASS TRAIT LEADERS ARE:

1. Hot Carcass Weight (CWT): Measured in pounds after slaughter and before chilling. 2. Ribeye area (REA): Measured in square inches on the longissimus dorsi muscle at the interface of the 12th and 13th ribs on the ribbed carcass after chilling. 3. Marbling Score (MARBLING): Intramuscular Fat (IMF) : IMF EPDs reflect differences in intramuscular fat (marbling score) based on actual carcass measurements of harvested progeny. Breeding cattle with higher IMF EPD’s should produce slaughter progeny with a higher degree of intramuscular fat and therefore higher quality grades.

| THE BRAHMAN JOURNAL

4. Adjusted 12th Rib Fat Thickness (FAT): Fat depth in inches was measured on each ribbed carcass and was adjusted according to USDA guidelines for the presence or absence of fat in other parts of the carcass. 5. Percentage Retail Yield (RETAIL): The percentage of boneless, closely trimmed, retail cuts from the round, loin, rib, and chuck of each carcass and was computed with the following formula: 65.69 -(9.93 Adjusted 12th Rib Fat Thickness, in.) -(1.29 Percent Kidney, Pelvic, and Heart Fat) +(1.23 Ribeye Area, sq. in.) -(0.013 Hot Carcass Weight, lb.) 6. Warner-Bratzler Shear Force (TENDERNESS): Warner-Bratzler shear force is a measure of tenderness. A 1 inch-steak was cut from a primal rib of each animal, aged for 14 days at 35.6ºF, and cooked on an electronic grill to an internal temperature of 155ºF (medium doneness). After cooking and steaks had cooled to room temperature, six to eight cores (1/2 inch in diameter) were removed parallel to fiber orientation from each steak. Peak shear force (lb of force required to pull a dull blade through a core) was measured on each core using a Warner-Bratzler shearing device. Warner-Bratzler shear force for each 14-day aged and cooked steak was evaluated as the average of shears from these six to eight cores. Interpretation & Usage: An EPD is an estimate of a bull’s transmitting ability. Transmitting ability for a given trait is 1/2 of the sires breeding value for that trait. Expected Progeny Differences have relative, rather than absolute value. They should be used to compare bulls within the breed rather than as “stand-alone” values. Example: Bull X: Carcass Weight EPD = 17 lb. Bull Y: Carcass Weight EPD = -3 lb. We would expect that when managed under similar conditions the AVERAGE CARCASS WEIGHT of a large number of progeny of Bull X would be 20 lb greater than the AVERAGE CARCASS WEIGHT of a large number of progeny of Bull Y. The accuracy of an EPD is a measure of how well the EPD estimates the transmitting ability of a sire for a given trait. Accuracy has a possible range from 0 to 1. Accuracy is higher for sires that have greater numbers of progeny with data. Possible change values (PCV) are associated with accuracy values that allow “bracketing” an EPD to an interval with a given amount of confidence. Higher accuracies have smaller possible change values, and therefore a tighter confidence “bracket” for the EPD. Example: Bull A has a ribeye area EPD of 0.1 sq in with an accuracy of 0.5. From the possible change values table on the ABBA website, the possible change value associated with 0.5 accuracy is 0.36. Therefore, there is a fairly high probability (~ 68%) that this bull’s true transmitting ability (EPD) for ribeye area is somewhere between: EPD - PVC = 0.1 - 0.36 = -0.26 & EPD + PVC = 0.1 + 0.36 = 0.46 Confidence “brackets” for other accuracies of traits can be calculated in a similar manner. Trait Leaders: Trait Leaders for the respective traits were determined by ranking the EPD from lowest to highest for adjusted 12th rib fat thickness, Maternal Birth Weight, Birth Weight, Warner-Bratzler Shear Force and from highest to lowest for the remaining traits.

2018 ABBA Brahman Bull Development & Marketing Program The American Brahman Breeders Association has confirmed that it will continue its ABBA Brahman Bull Development and Marketing Program in 2018. The program will be for bulls born January-April 2017. The bulls will be delivered to Texana Feeders between March 13-17, 2018.

4. Bulls should be weaned at least 45 days, recommended dehorned, received two rounds of injections and dewormed prior to delivery at Texana Feeders in Floresville, Texas.

The ABBA Bull Development & Marketing Program is designed to provide Brahman breeders with the opportunity to develop bulls, collect economically relevant data and market commercially oriented bulls in a cooperative effort.

Bulls must be dewormed and vaccinated at weaning or before with IBR, BVD,BRSV, PI3 – Modified Live, Pasturella pneumonia and Clostridial. Then, at 2-4 weeks after the first injections, they need a second round of IBR, BVD,BRSV, PI3 – Modified Live and Clostridial Blackleg.

“It’s an avenue for EVERY member to be able to competitively determine how their cattle perform and be rewarded through a marketing opportunity,” Jim-Bob Trant said. “We help keep you from having to have the infrastructure to develop bulls for sale.” Requirements for the 2018 program are as follows: 1. Consignors/Nominees must be members of the American Brahman Breeders Association. 2. Bulls must be registered in the American Brahman Breeders Association. 3. Bulls must have a Birth Weight & Weaning Weight submitted prior to being accepted into the program.

5. Bulls will be tested for BVD-PI and ONLY NEGATIVE Bulls will be allowed into the test.

Test Outline

Bulls will be given a 45-day warm up period following delivery to the feedyard. After the warm up period, the bulls will be weighed into the test, ultrasounded, given a docility score, evaluated for structural soundness and split into two groups if needed. Any bulls that have a 4-5 docility score, are structurally unsound or sifted by the committee will NOT be allowed to complete the test period. The test period will be for 120 days and then the bulls will be weighed off test. At the conclusion of the test, bulls will be weighed, and their hip height measured. They will also be ultrasounded

by an Ultrasound Guidelines Council approved technician and a disposition score will be assigned after a phenotypic evaluation to be conducted by three commercial cattlemen. A hair sample will be taken to be submitted to Zoetis for a DNA panel and parent verification. The following information will be reported to the breeder and ABBA: start weight, finish weight, average daily gain, frame score, ultrasound measurements (REA, IMF, Rump Fat and Back Fat), and DNA panel results.

Costs

The nomination fee is $150 per bull. This fee covers all additional test expenses outside of feed and veterinary costs. Bulls consigned to the sale will be charged sale expenses. The sale expenses will be prorated by the number of bulls in the sale. Feed costs will be prorated among the pen and billed monthly. Breeders can pay on a monthly basis or at the end of the test period. It is expected that the feed costs should be an average of $2.50/day. Any feed charges not paid at the time of sale will be deducted from the account of sale.

Consignment Sale

Following the conclusion of the test, a maximum of the top 30 high-indexing bulls will be prepared for a sale that will

take place in October 2018. The bulls selected for the sale will be turned out on grass and given a growing ration until sale time. The remaining bulls can be picked up or left to be developed for private treaty sales by the breeder. Bulls MUST meet the following to be eligible for the sale: •

Have an Actual Birth Weight less than 90 lbs.

Have a Disposition/Pen Score of 1-3

Must satisfactory pass a Breeding Soundness Exam

Must be structurally sound and appear to be in good health

Must pass all health tests including Trichomoniasis

ALL Bulls that meet the required index, the above requirements and pass the selection criteria of the committee MUST be sold in the auction. The Sale Eligibility Index, Sale Order Ranking and Award Rankings will be calculated based on the following ratios: 20% Scrotal Circumference, 20% Average Daily Gain of Test, 20% Adjusted REA/100 lb Ultrasound Score, 20% Adjusted IMF Ultrasound Score, 20% Birth Weight EPD. Awards will be given for the following:

Overall High Indexing Bull, Top Gaining Bull (ADG) and Top Scanning Bull. Please note that any bull can be sifted by the Sale Committee at any time if he does not meet the strict criteria of the committee and will not positively represent the breed or the breeder. The American Brahman Breeders Association, Texana Feeders and anyone else involved with this Bull Test will accept no liability for any loss or injury to bulls nominated to this program and sale. Bulls will be handled in a proper manner and appropriate care will be administered to bulls that are sick with the veterinary expenses being passed on to the nominator. Association members interested in participating in this program should download the ABBA Bull Test Sale Guidelines from the ABBA website Brahman.org. The packet is located under the “Reg./Transfer” tab in the “forms” section. The nomination form is included with the guidelines for the sale and must be filled out and returned to the ABBA office at 3003 South Loop West, Suite 500, Houston, Texas 77054. If anyone has questions about the program or sale, they can contact the Performance Committee Chairman Jim-Bob Trant via email at j.allentrant@yahoo.com.

The Brahman World Congress is one of the most important events in the livestock world, and this year Colombia will once again have the privilege of being the venue for the 19th edition, which will be in Bucaramanga from November 24 to December 2. Due to its climate and soils, it is one of the regions that stands out for Colombian cattle and Latin America.

El Congreso Mundial Brahman es uno de los eventos más importantes del mundo ganadero, y este año Colombia tendrá nuevamente el privilegio de ser sede para la edición número XIX, que tendrá lugar en la ciudad de Bucaramanga del 24 de noviembre al 2 de diciembre. Debido a su clima y sus suelos es una de las regiones que destaca en la ganadería colombiana y en Latinoamérica.

Colombia has been the venue for this important event on three occasions, one of which was twelve years ago in the city of eternal spring, Medellin. There were more than 2,000 international visitors from 18 countries, 10,000 nationals, 174 exhibitors and around 1,400 head of cattle on exhibit.

Colombia ha sido sede de este importante evento en tres ocasiones, una de estas fue realizada en la ciudad de la eterna primavera, Medellín, en donde se presenció el evento más grande que se haya realizado hasta el momento dentro de la familia ganadera colombiana, esto fue en el año 2006, y allí se recibieron más de dos mil visitantes internacionales de 18 países, diez mil nacionales, 174 expositores y alrededor de 1,400 cabezas de ganado de exposición.

Asocebú and their marketing department (Comercializadora) will hold an event that will be more interactive and didactic, as it will have two days of visits to farms, conferences dictated by several experts and there will be space for panels that will expose the success stories of farms, both Colombian and international, as well as purebred and commercial livestock issues. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask the experts questions. Enrique Sánchez of Rancho Chapopote in Mexico will be one of these representative success stories. His ranch CONTINUED ON PAGE 64

has won several Cebu cattle exhibitions in his country and has a great reputation internationally. In addition to this, reproduction, genetics and nutrition will be topics of discussion, since the demand for meat around the world is becoming stricter every day and Brahman cattle have established themselves as the strongest beef cattle. Also, the traceability of livestock in Colombia has had a successful expansion, thanks to the implementation of race crossbreeding programs, where breeders of pure and commercial cattle have benefited. For this new edition, experts and professors from South Africa, Australia, the United States and Mexico have been invited. One of these speakers will be Mr. Johann Zietman, who is a recognized cattle rancher from Zimbabwe, Southern Africa, and will address the issue of simplified livestock selection and fertility as a neglected selection trait. Likewise, Dr. Temple Grandin will be present and will give a talk about low stress methods in livestock production, and the Mexican, Carlos Galina, veterinarian and zoo technician and professor of the Autonomous University of Mexico, will give two talks, one of which will be focused on alternative management to reduce postpartum anestrus of the Cebu races. Also, Stephen Moore, Director of the Centre for Animal Science, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation, of the University of Queensland and professor of this same university will be attending and he will speak about the sequence of the Australian Brahman genome as a new tool for better genetic prediction in cattle adapted to the tropical climate. Colombia will also have representatives in this congress with professor of the University of Caldas, Héctor Aricapa, Andrés Arenas, executive director of Asocebú, Germán Gómez, technical director and Ariel Jiménez, coordinator of research and development.

Understanding the transmission of foot-and-mouth disease virus at different scales

By David J Paton, Simon Gubbins, Donald P King The Pirbright Institute

TBJ is publishing this FMD article at the request of the American Brahman Breeders Association. Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is highly infectious, but despite the large quantities of FMD virus released into the environment and the extreme susceptibility of host species to infection, transmission is not always predictable. Whereas virus spread in endemic settings is characterised by frequent direct and indirect animal contacts, incursions into FMD-free countries may be seeded by low-probability events such as fomite or windborne aerosol routes. There remains a void between data generated from small-scale experimental studies and our ability to reliably reconstruct transmission routes at different scales between farms, countries and regions. This review outlines recent transmission studies in susceptible host species, and considers new approaches that integrate virus genomics and epidemiological data to recreate and understand the spread of FMD.

Characteristics Of Foot-And-Mouth Disease

Foot-and mouth disease (FMD) affects cloven-hoofed animals (including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs), and is caused by an RNA virus (FMDV) in the family Picornaviridae. Characteristically, vesicles develop, especially in epithelia around the mouth, feet and mammary glands. Case-fatality is usually low except in young stock, but productivity losses and costs associated with control can be substantial [1]. The disease is highly contagious, and the potential for infection of different domesticated and wildlife hosts, not all of which show obvious signs of disease, is a further challenge to control [2]. FMDV exists as seven discrete serotypes, and the disease mainly occurs in Africa and Asia, with global distribution mirroring poverty and livestock density [3•]. New virus strains evolve and emerge regularly and give rise to successive waves of infection, which sometimes spill over into FMD-free regions. Vaccination with killed vaccines is used on a large scale but the immunity induced is short lived and is serotype and sometimes strain specific [4•]. During acute infection, transmission is facilitated by virus shedding from ruptured vesicles and in bodily excretions and secretions, including breath, milk and semen [5] (Figure 1). Susceptible ruminants can be infected by very low doses of inhaled virus through direct contact with the breath of other acutely infected animals, or indirectly by resuspension of aerosols from contaminated materials. Pigs are relatively resistant to FMDV infection via inhalation routes [5]. Other routes of infection such as ingestion or through abrasions require a higher dose of virus. Depending on conditions, FMDV can survive for days to months in the environment and in various animal products including meat [6]. There is a rapid immune response to infection associated with FMDV clearance, but some ruminant hosts continue to harbour virus, becoming carriers with low and declining levels of FMDV in specific nasopharyngeal epithelial sites [7] and associated lymphoid tissues [8].

In the absence of obvious epidemiological links between infected animals, FMDV incursions into FMD-free countries must often be explained by low-probability events. This gives rise to the reputation of FMD as one of the most infectious diseases. A classic example was the long distance wind-borne spread of FMD to the Isle of Wight in the South of England in 1981 from a pig farm on the North French coast [9]. This contrasts with disease circulation within epidemics, or in and between countries where FMD is endemic, where spread occurs most readily via more predictable routes due to direct contact between animals and via traded animal products. A challenge is to understand, quantify and model the multiplicity of different transmission routes possible for FMD at different scales in order to predict the disease’s spread and the likely impact of control measures.

Experimental Studies Of Transmission

Experimental studies under controlled conditions have contributed enormously to our understanding of the pathogenesis and transmission dynamics of FMD (Figure 2), including sites of virus replication and persistence, incubation and shedding periods, minimum infectious doses by various routes, the nature and impact of the immune response and differences between host species [5,10,11,12•]. It is important to recognise that these studies predominately focus on experimental infection in cattle, and consequently, transmission studies for other domesticated hosts (pigs, small ruminants and Asian buffalo) are under-represented in the literature. Furthermore, controlled studies with dangerous pathogens in animals are constrained by ethical, biosecurity, capacity and cost considerations. Small-scale studies lack the power to quantify low probability transmission routes, such as from fomites, contaminated feed or carriers. Thus, it is often difficult to quantify the force of infection arising from different transmission opportunities that may occur in the field and hence to recognise those of most importance under different circumstances.

Susceptible animals can be infected via direct contact with infectious animals, through ingestion of infected animal products, via exposure to inanimate objects contaminated with FMDV (fomites), or through ingestion/aerosol contact with infected animal products. The period of infectiousness broadly correlates with the expression of clinical signs, although precise timing of these events has been observed to vary in experimental studies with different host species, infection models and FMDV serotypes.

A common difficulty for experimental studies is reconciling the need to design challenge models that reflect real-life situations whilst remaining reproducible, comparable and quantifiable. In order to better mimic natural exposure, recent studies have pioneered the use of novel intranasopharyngeal (INP) inoculation systems in cattle [13], pigs [14], and sheep [15]. In cattle, these routes of infection were compared to direct contact exposure (cattle-to-cattle or pig-to-cattle) and to the conventionally used system of intraepithelial-lingual injection. There was more within-group variation in the timing of clinical infection following natural and simulated natural virus exposure systems when compared with needle inoculation. However, as well as more closely simulating field conditions, these alternative methods engage mucosal host defence mechanisms. Most transmission experiments involve inoculating animals with FMDV and allowing them to mix with uninfected animals in a controlled environment. Novel experimental designs have been recently implemented in which the uninfected animals mix with the infected animals for defined periods of time, thus allowing FMDV infectiousness to be studied in more detail [16,17]. Recently, Stenfeldt and others studied direct contact transmission of FMDV within groups of pigs co-mingled in successive periods from 8 to 64 hours after inoculation of the donor pigs [17]. Infectiousness started 24 hours after inoculation but approximately 24 hours before the first clinical signs of FMD had appeared, coinciding with the start of viraemia in the donors. Furthermore, the onset and progression of clinical FMD in recipient pigs was faster after exposure to donors at more advanced phases of disease, suggesting this had resulted in a higher challenge dose. The shedding of FMDV in oropharyngeal fluids was a more reliable indicator of FMDV infectiousness than clinical signs. Importantly, these findings for groups of pigs differ from one-to-one transmission studies in cattle where animals were not infectious until, on average 0.5 days after clinical signs appeared [16], suggesting preclinical transmission is more likely from pigs than cattle. These examples highlight the challenges to establish generic insights that inform risk-based control policies using data from different host species, study designs, FMDV serotypes and infection methods. Indirect transmission routes are notoriously difficult to quantify but are the main means for the spread of FMDV in countries that effectively impose movement bans in the face of disease outbreaks. An attempt to estimate indirect contact transmission rates in experimental calves has been recently reported [18]. This study estimated the reproduction ratio for transmission via the environment to be 2, which is at the level that would be able to sustain an epidemic. However, this estimate is substantially lower than the reproduction ratio reported for direct transmission, which is typically around 20–30 [19–21].

Studying transmission in the field

In view of the limitations of experimental studies, field studies are essential, but have been hampered by a lack of capacity in parts of the world where FMD occurs, along with conflict between the requirements for expeditious disease control versus information gathering. Comprehensive information on both livestock epidemiology and disease progression is rarely available, but is needed to understand the relationship between animal production systems and the dynamics of FMD within them [22]. FMD control strategies are not always set up in a way that promotes their evaluation and few field trials of vaccination are undertaken [23]. Accurate modelling of field FMD transmission is further complicated by the contribution of sub-clinical infection amongst acutely infected animals, particularly between vaccinated animals where clinical disease is less evident [24–26]. A lack of detailed data also hampers the development of models to predict FMDV transmission and control, a topic reviewed by Pomeroy and others [27••]. They found that modelling methodology is well developed with multiple methods to represent contact-specific transmission and targeted control. However, detailed disease and host data representing large FMD outbreaks used to populate these models are restricted mainly to the UK epidemic of 2001. In fact, many insights have been gained from studying this epidemic, such as of the relatively greater contribution of cattle rather than sheep in disease transmission both between and within farms. But it is difficult to know how far these findings can be generalised to situations elsewhere, with different animals, husbandry systems, livestock and human networks, climates and levels of pre-existing

immunity. Novel data sources are needed and notwithstanding the challenges involved, host and disease data should be collected from endemic settings to advance control and better understand FMDV transmission dynamics. As an example of the potential benefit of these approaches, a recent model of transmission from African buffalo to cattle adjacent to the Kruger National Park in South Africa [28••] reproduced the observed frequency of outbreaks, highlighting the importance of young buffalo and suggesting that cattle moving into the park may be more important than buffalo escaping.

The role of carriers in transmission

The mechanisms involved in virus persistence within carrier ruminants and the very low risks for onward transmission are incompletely understood, hindering the development of risk-based approaches to inform disease control and international rules for safe trade in animals and their products [29]. Experimental and field studies to understand the epidemiological role of carrier animals continue to be a focus of research. Hayer and others monitored duration of the carrier state in Indian cattle and found the mean period of virus persistence was 13 months [30]. Cellular determinants of the carrier state have also been studied using host transcriptome analysis of tissue samples processed by laser capture microdissection from experimentally infected cattle [7], indicating suppression of antiviral host factors in association with persistent FMDV. At the level of the host, Bronsvoort and others studied carriers within cattle herds in Cameroon, where FMD is endemic [31]. They confirmed that carrier rates decrease markedly with time after infection, and found that younger animals are more likely to be carriers. However, there was no evidence to support virus transmission from these carriers (via seroconversion of animals born after outbreaks). African buffalo (Syncerus caffer), in which FMDV may have originated, can act as a reservoir host, maintaining the three Southern African serotypes (SAT 1-3) of FMDV, even within relatively small and isolated buffalo populations [32]. This probably involves transmission from carrier adults to susceptible young buffalo and carrier African buffalo have also been shown to transmit the virus to cattle. In contrast, transmission from carrier domestic livestock has not been proven by experimental studies [33]. Occasional spread of SAT serotypes to cattle can give rise to selfsustaining epidemics which are difficult to control with vaccination due to the antigenic diversity of the buffalo virus pools. Buffalo to cattle transmission is therefore another example of something that occurs rarely, but can be of great significance [21]. Coinfection studies in African buffalo identified infectious virus and viral genomes for up to 185 and 400 days respectively in lymphoid tissues of the head and neck, mainly in germinal centres [34]. There was a correlation between persistence and in vitro cell-killing capacity of different virus isolates, suggesting that the duration of persistence of FMDVs may be linked to their replication and cell-killing capacity.

Transmission between regions

Spread of FMDV at higher scales (i.e. between farms, countries or regions) is a complex process affected by factors beyond virus shedding and uptake. For example, long distance airborne transmission of FMDV is dependent on specific virus transfer and survival conditions which can now be predicted by models that consider wind direction and strength, temperature, relative humidity and geographical topography [35]. Consequently, this mode of transmission is understood to be uncommon even in temperate zones and extremely unlikely in hot and arid conditions. Factors associated with globalisation increasing the risk of long-distance spread of FMDV are well recognised, such as the movements of people, goods, animals and their products. Unrestricted and illegal movements are especially risky, whilst civil unrest disrupts disease and border controls and alters animal, people and trade flows [36,37]. There is a long history of using virus genetic data to study the international spread of FMDV [38–40], which continues with collaboration between reference laboratories supported by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and the World Animal Health Organisation (OIE) [41]. Recent studies show repeated and widespread dissemination of FMDV serotypes O and A from South Asia (Figure 3), which is perhaps counter-intuitive given the FMD control efforts and progress reported from India, the largest country in the region and the world’s biggest cattle producer. CONTINUED ON PAGE 70 Figure 3. Recent long-distance spread of FMD viruses revealed by sequence analyses. Since 2008, a number of region-specific FMDV lineages that normally circulate and are maintained within endemic pools have spread into new geographical settings (coloured arrows represent viruses from sub-Saharan Africa (red), the Indian sub-continent (brown), and Southeast/East Asia (blue)). The southward pointing brown arrow denotes FMDV spread to cause an outbreak that occurred on Islands in the Indian Ocean during 2016 (Mauritius and Rodrigues). No single factor has been recognised that underpins these transboundary transmission patterns, which are probably exacerbated by the escalation of regional political crises, and migration of people in North Africa and the Middle East along with increased demand for animal products in East Asia.

Using phylodynamics to understand transmission

FMDV replicates and evolves rapidly allowing transmission and selection to be studied at different scales; between cells and tissues (i.e. within individual animals), between animals, between farms and between countries [42]. In their review, Pybus and Rambault discuss the emerging science of phylodynamics, which links pathogen evolution with the dynamics of infection and transmission [43•]. A primary aim of FMD researchers has been to use genetic data to resolve the order and timing of transmission events between outbreaks, since surveillance and epidemiological enquiries often miss infected farms and cannot resolve transmission pathways. Because of the many possible routes for virus spread, it is difficult to determine which has been responsible for new outbreaks. For example, the precise source and route of infection (who infected whom and how) for most of the >2000 premises infected during the 2001 UK epidemic could not be determined with certainty from epidemiological enquiries. Analysis of the overlapping periods within which individuals or groups are infected and/or infectious can help to decide the most likely direction of transmission, although this depends upon accurate observations on farms, combined with accurate estimates of incubation and shedding patterns. Many transmission permutations usually remain and constraining this selection with FMDV genetic data has been used to infer the most likely transmission routes between farms affected by FMD in the UK in 2001 and 2007 [44•,45]. Direct source attribution by sequencing can only inform the likelihood of direct linkage to the last ‘replicating’ source (an animal), a problem apparent in analysis of the earlier UK epidemic of 1967/8 [46]. The UK 2001 and 2007 datasets have been reanalysed with increasingly sophisticated methods [47–52]. These approaches attempt to overcome difficulties such as unobserved outbreaks on farms, incorrect attribution of infection and shedding times, unobserved evolution within unsampled hosts and lack of farm network and contact data. Although these methods provide information on who infected whom, including quantifying the uncertainty in attribution of transmission links, they cannot on their own tell us about the routes of transmission or their relative importance. However, these methods could play an immensely important role in understanding the epidemiology of FMDV in endemic settings, and particularly in the role of wildlife, and the management of livestock and wildlife interface, but this will require significant improvements in surveillance and sample acquisition. More realistic models of within-host pathogen evolution would allow greater information about ‘who-infected-whom’ to be extracted from a phylogeny. Whole genome consensus sequencing of FMDVs obtained during serial passage in cattle confirmed the ability of phylogeny to reproduce the transmission events between animals [53]. These experimental studies were complemented by investigations of the variability of FMDV full genome consensus sequences from samples collected from animals representing multiple hosts on each of the holdings affected during the 2007 UK outbreak [54]. An average 4.6 nucleotide sequence differences accrued during transmission between infected farms, similar to the one to four nucleotide changes that were detected during controlled interanimal transmissions. The small number of substitutions between farms suggests limited cycles of within-farm transmission prior to disease detection and sampling. The advent of next generation sequencing (NGS) provides greater resolution to monitor the entire sequence swarm that exists within FMDV samples and the impact of transmission within and between hosts upon sub-consensus polymorphisms [42,55,56•,57]. NGS analysis of viruses obtained from the cattle transmission series described by Juleff and others [53] revealed that the dynamics of minority variants are consistent with genetic drift rather than strong selection and that viral population complexity is influenced by small intra-host bottlenecks and relatively large inter-host bottlenecks [56•].

Conclusion

A spectrum of different mechanisms contributes to the transmission of FMDV at different scales. Uncertainty regarding the precise origins of FMD outbreaks and the specific connections between susceptible hosts, infected farms and different countries can be reduced by combining FMD virus sequence data with epidemiological data describing the spatial and temporal features of the outbreaks. Reconstructing patterns of FMD virus spread has the potential to help define and understand the risks for onward FMD transmission providing new focus for disease control initiatives such as targeted vaccination.

Worldwide Customers Add Value to U.S. Beef Written by Kelley Sullivan, TSCRA Director Over the years, U.S. exports have become critical to the U.S. beef industry and the rural economy. In 2016, we sold more than $6.3 billion worth of beef products through exports to other countries. This accounts for a value of $290 per head, even for those not directly involved in the international market. It is safe to say that this value will increase if the U.S. beef industry is able to respond to the growth in demand for our beef in other countries.

Asia is a prime target. As more Asian consumers join the economic middle class, they are adding protein like beef to their diet. Trade allows us to capitalize on dietary differences and preferences to capture value for beef that would not exist if we sold in only the domestic market.

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) members are clear in their expectation that the U.S. trade negotiators and government do everything necessary to secure and maintain strong access to international markets.

consumers. Our top six export markets are Japan, Korea, Mexico, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In 2016, 84 percent of our export sales came from these 6 markets. Threats to international market access get the attention and concern of cattle raisers across the country.

In May, I was fortunate to personally visit some of our beef customers in Korea and Japan and observe, first-hand, the strong demand for U.S. beef.

Today the success or failure of the U.S. beef industry depends on our level of access to global

Our perspective on international trade stems from a basic premise. If we’re going to raise cattle and produce beef, we need competitive access to consumers who are willing to pay for our product.

We encourage the U.S. government to aggressively pursue opportunities to remove tariff and non-tariff barriers around the world. The U.S. beef industry has reaped the benefits of trade policies such as the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Korea-U.S. (KORUS) Free Trade Agreement.

For many years, Americans have been the primary focus of U.S. beef marketing efforts. Americans prefer ribeyes, tenderloins and hamburger and are willing to pay a higher price. Other beef cuts such as short ribs, tongue and livers fetch a lower price on the domestic market, but actually, yield great premiums in the international market. For this reason, we are increasingly looking beyond our borders for opportunities to maximize sales.

Our success hinges on our ability to avoid the mistakes of the past and take an aggressive posture in support of trade liberalization. We are very excited that after 14 years in exile, U.S. beef access has been restored to China. While previous administrations worked diligently to address China’s concerns and negotiate terms, it was the Trump Administration that closed the deal and restored U.S. beef access to China this summer.

Worldwide Customers add Value to U.S. Beef

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 72

Our negotiators worked hard to secure market access terms that are superior to the terms under which our competitors export to China. We view China as an important investment for the future of our industry. While we’re excited about the opportunities China holds, we’re very concerned with statements from our government that may put our success under KORUS in jeopardy. We have nothing to gain by walking away from a free-trade agreement between Korea and the U.S. Despite criticism from anti-trade groups and some leaders within our government, the U.S. beef industry has thrived under KORUS. Korea is our second largest export market accounting for more than $1 billion in annual sales. Annual U.S. beef sales have increased 82 percent during KORUS. If we dissolve this agreement, Korea will undoubtedly reinstate a 40 percent tariff on U.S. beef and we will lose our competitive advantage over Australia and other countries. Japan is the top export market for U.S. beef. In 2016, Japanese consumers purchased $1.5 billion of U.S. beef, even with a 38.5 percent tariff in place. 2017 has been a record year for U.S. beef in Japan, reaching nearly $1.1 billion in sales just through July. Due to that success, however, Japan triggered a snap-back tariff of 50 percent on frozen beef. The tariff went from 38.5 percent to 50 percent, overnight. Without a free-trade agreement in place, U.S. frozen beef will continue facing the 50 percent tariff until April 2018, and without a trade agreement, we could face higher tariffs again. In contrast, Australian beef imports are not subject to the 50

percent snap-back tariff because they have a trade agreement with Japan. Australia enjoys a stable 27 percent tariff rate. We support trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) because it would have lowered the tariff on U.S. beef from 38.5 percent to 9 percent in 16 years. Unfortunately, the decision to remove the U.S. from TPP puts us at a significant disadvantage. We ask U.S. negotiators to focus on securing new market access for U.S. beef exports starting with making up the ground we lost walking away. Closer to home, we are keeping a careful eye on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In 2016, U.S. beef exports to Mexico accounted for a value of almost $1 billion. Texas’ trade partnership with Mexico is one of the strongest in the country. Mexico is one of the top buyers of U.S. beef, and Texas and Mexican ranchers have been buying and selling cattle with one another for generations. NAFTA has been beneficial to U.S. cattle raisers and beef producers, creating two markets, each with an annual value of $1 billion in exports of U.S. beef to Canada and Mexico. Since NAFTA was implemented, exports of U.S.-produced beef to Mexico have grown by more than 750 percent. We urge the U.S. government to do no harm to international trade for U.S. beef, and believe it is time that our policy makers use all necessary resources to secure and maintain strong market access for U.S. beef producers.

Written by Sandy Johnson, Extension Beef Specialist, Kansas State University

The checklist below is designed to help you plan and prepare to improve the success of your calving season and weaned calf crop. 33 Balance cow rations for adequate protein and energy for increased third trimester and subsequent lactation requirements. Group and feed cows by body condition and age to the degree possible. Target body condition for first calf heifers at calving of 5.5 to 6 and 5 to 5.5 for mature cows. 33 Develop sound vaccination program to prepare the cow to produce high quality colostrum. 33 Control lice and internal parasites. 33 Plan for recording calving data and consider ways to backup records. 33 Make sure calving facilities are clean and in good repair 33 Plan for ear tags, tattoos, scale or weight tape, banding or castration. 33 Check flashlights and other quality portable light sources. 33 Check-list for calving assistance. 33 OB chains, calf puller, OB gloves, OB lube (non-detergent soap & water is one option), non-irritant antiseptic (Betadine or Nolvasan), flank rope to lay cow down 33 A cooler can be used to keep warm water in calving barn if no other source available. 33 Old towels or similar 33 Have on hand at least 2 clean and functional esophageal tube feeders, clearly marked, one for healthy calves, one only used for sick calves. 33 Plan and watch for opportunities to collect colostrum from within the herd. Date and freeze in quart sized plastic bags for future use. 33 If replacement calves are obtained from outside the herd, plan for their isolation and testing before exposing to entire herd. 33 Plan for severe weather; wind, freezing rain and blizzards are not uncommon. Plan for correcting calf hypothermia. Calf shelters should be in good repair, bedding on hand. Plans for portable windbreaks and calf shelters are available from your local extension office. 33 Shift feeding to dusk or later to promote daytime calving one week before anticipated start of calving season.

Develop standard operation procedures for calving and providing assistance. Include list and contact information for individuals who can provide more expertise or assistance as required. The following are suggestions on when to intervene. • You suspect cow has been in Stage 1 over 8 hours. Stage 1 characteristics; restlessness, pain, lies down and gets up frequently, seeks isolation (signs more apparent in firstcalf heifers than mature cows). During Stage 2 • Water sack visible for 2 hours and cow is not trying • Cow trying for over 30 minutes and no progress is being made • Cow has quit trying for over 15-20 minutes after a period of progress • Cow or calf showing excessive fatigue or stress (swollen tongue or excessive bleeding) • You can observe the calf presentation is other than two front feet and head first.

When Calves Arrive •

Calves should have colostrum within first 2 hours of life, if calf can’t get colostrum from dam, take steps to give colostrum within 4-6 hrs of birth. Colostrum intake should be 10% of calf’s body weight, 0.5 – 1 gallon. If supplementing colostrum, don’t over feed to encourage calf to nurse on its own. A 1.5 quart dose is a good starting point. Handle healthy calves before sick calves and avoid exposing newborns to contaminants on clothing or materials used on sick calves. If a cow is brought in for any amount of calving assistance, make sure she leaves with a clean udder.

Work towards developing a notebook that has all the standard operating procedures for your operation. Include things like yearly vaccination plans, treatment protocols, calving and calving assistance protocols, euthanasia protocols, drought management plans and weather emergency plans. This will be a valuable resource when communicating with employees new and old, when reviewing what needs to be improved for the next year or if a health emergency forces someone else to take care of the herd.

AMERICAN JUNIOR BRAHMAN ASSOC.

Hi, My name is Alex Lovell and I am your AJBA Treasurer. My story about how I got into Brahmans starts out with my dad praying for a tool to raise me and my siblings the best he could. About 2 weeks later we were invited to go hunt pigs at a ranch out on Avoca Island. After the hunt we went out a few weeks later to go work cows. My five-year-old self and my dad enjoyed it so much we ended up buying 5 heifers to put out with our buddy’s cows. We learned very quick about how much birth weights matter. After a few years we picked up 90 acres close to home where we still have cows today. When I was 8 years old my dad asked me if I wanted to show cattle, now, at this point I had no idea what a Brahman was or anything about showing, but with the generous people involved with the Brahman breed it was never difficult to find help. I for sure owe a big thanks to Mr. Bill and Ms. Connie Nettles and the Plaisance Family for the guidance they have given me. I don’t think I would’ve ever been the places I’ve been with Brahmans without these two families.

During the spring of 2017, I got word I was headed to Australia. Being as excited as I was I took off a month earlier than expected. When I got there, I was immediately weaned off seasoned food and community coffee. While I was there I saw very good cattle and met some of the best cattlemen I’ve ever come across. What I enjoyed the most were the sales. Getting to see guys put their money where their mouth is and spend $100,000 plus on bulls was a sight to see. It truly was a trip like no other. In January I will be starting college at LSU and I truly believe God has opened a lot of doors for me through the Brahman breed. I hope to see everyone very soon!

Alex

The Western Hat Renovation Specialists Rodeo season is upon us, and we all want to enter the barns looking our best! If your favorite cowboy hat has seen better days and needs repair, it can be difficult to find a qualified professional to mend it. But Brahman breeders and enthusiasts need look no further, you can trust the renovation specialists at Shorty’s Caboy Hattery. Shorty Koger, owner of Shorty’s Caboy Hattery, and her crew will be at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in the vendor’s section of the same barn as the Brahman exhibitors. Whether your own hat needs to be refurbished or you need to restore a family member’s hat for future generations, rest assured they will make sure your hat is cared for properly and returned to you restored to nearly new condition. Not every hattery can perform a full western hat renovation. At Shorty’s Hattery, the first thing they do is open the hat’s crown and then the crown and brim are measured and documented on the renovation form. The hat is completely disassembled and the hat band, sweatband, lining and edge binding on the brim (if applicable) are removed in preparation for the hat to be placed in a chemical bath which cleanses the hat and restores its original stiffness. A renovation specialist will then take a soft brush to remove any excess spots. After the spots are removed and the hat is cleaned, the hat is put in a specially designed spin dryer and it will be hung to dry. A wood block will be inserted in the crown to give it shape. A wood wedge is then set at a ninety-degree angle where the crown meets the brim. This is one of the “trademarks” of a high-quality custom hat.

96

| THE BRAHMAN JOURNAL

The crown is smoothed and any spots that did not come out in the chemical bath are sanded. The brim is also sanded to remove any remaining spots there and then ironed to reset the stiffness in the brim. Finally, the hat is then reassembled, and the hatband and lining are sewn back into the hat. It is an intricate process where the hat undergoes a deep cleaning, re-blocking, shaping, and if necessary, a new leather sweatband and new liner are added. Shorty’s Caboy Hattery in based out of Oklahoma City, but travels to events across the country. They sell a variety of custom hats and high-quality merchandise. Koger is well known in the agricultural and equine community for her amazing custom hats as well as her philanthropic endeavours. She has worked diligently to raise money for the fight against breast cancer, supporting cancer patients currently being treated across the country. To learn more about this specialty hattery, visit the Shorty’s website at shortyshattery.com or visit their booth in person during the International Brahman week in Houston.

MEXICO

BRIANA BISHOP WEDS COLE PRINCE Briana Bishop of Trenton, Florida and Cole Prince of Cairo, Georgia were married Saturday, January 6th, at four o’clock in the afternoon at Gin Creek Plantation and Winery. Pastor Andy Cook officiated the ceremony. The bride is the daughter of Mark and Christel Bishop of Trenton, Florida and the groom is the son of Ray and Karla Prince and Artie and Cheryl Griner. The wedding was held shortly before sunset in front of the newly built grand barn on the Gin Creek Plantation in front of 180 family and guests. The best man was also the father of the groom, Ray Prince. Groomsmen included Josh Barrette, Jakson Barrette and Chris Godwin. The maid of honor was Brenna Land and bridesmaids included both bride’s sisters, Brandalyn and Bethalan Bishop and Kerri

Barrette. They were dressed in gray fulllength gowns with burgundy pashmina covers and carried bouquets with burgundy flowers, red roses and various succulent buds. Flower girls selected were Haize Hinton and Brylee Fairchild, who wore crème lace full length ball gowns. Joining them as ring bearer was Nathan Watkins, pulled in a wooden wagon by Jaken Barette. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father. She was in a fitted blush gown with an outstanding twelve-foot veil that graced the aisle in the breeze behind her. She carried similar flowers to the bridesmaids. Cole owns a full-scale ranch in Cairo, Georgia and Briana will continue to work as a full-time consultant for Cattle In Motion.
