Remember! The Royal is the National show this year. Bill Lamport of Lamport's Polled Herefords, is a member of the band "Pure Country". On July 12th at the Balzac, Alberta hall, they held a Flood Relief Benefit "Barn Dance" concert to raise money for the flood victims in Southern Alberta. After tallying it all up, nearly $18,000 was raised. A great community effort!

Darian Livingstone of Vermillion Alberta, attended a 4-H Provincial judging where she was awarded a trip to the National Western Stock Show in Denver. She had a wonderful experience and encourages people to become more involved in 4-H. Who knows what kind of opportunities will come up!

The most exciting week held each year, involving the Junior Bonanza show, the Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) AGM and committee and board meetings, is now over. It was a very successful week and I wish to thank the Manitoba Hereford Association and all the volunteers for their time and efforts in this regard. I would also like to commend the parents, grandparents, and the many friends and sponsors who continue to support our Juniors - the future for our breed and association. Several major programs were initiated by the CHA last year that are ongoing. The first and most exciting is the Residual Feed Intake (RFI) trial to develop an EPD for feed efficiency. A total of 329 bulls were on test for trials one and two, with 316 RFI records being collected. This is a three-year project. Therefore, I invite our members to consider entering bull calves in the upcoming trials three and four, which begin in October. As the project continues and more data is accumulated, a valuable breed improvement tool will be created for all members. Interested members can contact the CHA office for more information.

The first results of the Total Herd Enrolment (THE) All-Star Breeders program were announced at the annual meeting. I am pleased to report that 123 breeders qualified for the program and these breeders are recognized on page 131 inside this issue of the Digest. The first results of the Total Herd Enrolment (THE) All-Star Breeders program were announced at the annual meeting. I am pleased to report that 123 breeders qualified for the program and these breeders are recognized on page 131 inside this issue of the Digest. The purpose of the program is to recognize those members who fully comply with the THE mandate of complete and accurate reporting of performance data on their animals. We encourage all members to get involved in this program. The CHA Board continues to put a major focus on the export of Hereford genetics to Russia and Kazakhstan. Gordon Stephenson and I participated in a government mission with Ministers Ritz and Olson from Alberta in May. The mission for the CHA was very successful in terms of supporting our exporters, raising our profile with both levels of government and supporting the importers of Canadian genetics. Gordon has reported more details on the mission in his General Managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report.

The CHA marketing committee brought forward a new logo design which was approved by the Board and presented to the annual meeting. The design is displayed in the Events section - page 7 - of this Digest and we hope the membership likes the new logo which will be gradually introduced on our materials beginning in January 2014. One last item from the recent annual meeting was the adoption of a new logo for the association.

Many of you may have noticed on the CHA website and elsewhere, that the CHA has been advertising for a replacement for the General Manager/Executive Director position. This is due to Gordon Stephensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to retire at year-end, after nine years with the association. Thank you Gordon for your dedication to the Canadian Hereford Association.

La semaine la plus excitante tenue chaque année, impliquant le Bonanza, l’assemblée générale annuelle de l’Association Canadienne Hereford (ACH), les réunions de Comité et du Conseil d’administration, est maintenant terminée. Ce fut une semaine très réussie et je tiens à remercier l’Association Hereford du Manitoba et tous les bénévoles pour leur temps et leurs efforts à cet égard. Je tiens également à féliciter les parents, grands-parents et les nombreux amis et commanditaires qui continuent à soutenir nos Juniors - l’avenir de notre race et de notre association. Plusieurs programmes élaborés ont été lancés par l’ACH l’an dernier et demeurent encore en cours. Le premier et le plus excitant est le projet sur le résidu alimentaire qui nous permettra de développer un EPD pour l’efficacité alimentaire. Un total de 329 taureaux a été testé parmi les deux groupes, nous fournissant 316 records. Il s’agit d’un projet de trois ans. Par conséquent, j’invite nos membres à envisager d’inscrire leurs veaux mâles pour les phases trois et quatre, qui

letters to the association

A Letter from a Keith Gilmore Scholarshipp Recipient - 13 years later To Whom It May Concern: While researching grant opportunities for the national charity I founded, and am now CEO, I came across ‘The Keith Gilmore Foundation’. I didn’t realize you were based in Calgary - as too, now, am I. It’s been 13 years since I received the Keith Gilmore Foundation scholarship. At the time, I was a 2nd year agriculture student at the University of Manitoba. I wish I could tell you how much that grant helped me... in ways I didn’t expect. Following receipt of the grant, I became one of the youngest students to enter the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. To be honest, I’m not where I expected to be, over a decade ago. Then, I figured I’d get into vet school, meet someone, settled down on some cattle farm in Saskatchewan and live happily ever after. :) But my life took a few detours... I made a national team, left Vet School to become Canada’s first professional inline speed skater... broke a world record... fractured my skull in a really awful skating crash... faced and have (somewhat) dealt with some major mental health issues... and founded the first charity in Canada focused on the prevention of eating disorders and self-harm in youth. While I’m no longer in the agricultural sector (albeit still with a passion for cattle - I’ve been known to stop a car while driving down the highway merely to better identify whatever beast standing in the field is clearly not a Hereford, Angus, or Holstein!), I still think fondly of the Keith Gilmore Foundation. Yours was the first scholarship I received at a time I was, really, struggling. On the outside, I looked like the student who had everything going for her... but I was dealing with a major history of abuse and hiding an eating disorder that nearly killed me... a few times. It really meant a lot to me, to receive the K.G. Scholarship when I did - a vote of confidence, in my ability, at a time I desperately needed someone to tell me I had some worth. Although I’m probably not the expected ‘successful outcome’ of the K.G. Scholarship (I believe my application had something to do about my then-desire to become a swine vet... sorry to disappoint), but I count the K.G. Scholarship as one of the key reasons I’m now alive. The year I received your support was one of the worst of my life. I honestly don’t think I would be here, if I hadn’t your support to leave Winnipeg (and the abuse I suffered since childhood). While in the Faculty of Ag., I learned a lot about nurturing roots and shoots, the importance of good soil, and a healthy environment to provide a viable outcome. I hope you find it fitting that I now tend ‘roots’ of a different sort. Part of my job now is to go into schools and talk with kids (and teach parents)... in short, working at making their environment the best I can, so our youth can flourish and grow strong. Like a critical ray of sunlight, or a drop of water on a parched root, I’m living proof that all it takes is one person (or a scholarship selection committee) to make all the difference in the world.

Thank you, for your support. Sincerely Meaghan Buisson Founder and CEO, BodyWhys Youth Canada BodyWhys Youth Canada is a National Charity focused solely on preventing eating disorders and self-harm in youth.

Bull sales in the winter and spring of 2013 continued to be strong for the Hereford breed. We are seeing a drive from the commercial producer, now choosing more than ever before, to use Hereford bulls on other breeds especially on Angus and Simmental cows. The U.S. beef herd has been trending Hereford for the last several years and that surge in popularity continues. Using Hereford in cross breeding situations

New, this past June, is the ability to place your logo on all of your animals in the Animal, EPD and Member Inquiry system of the CHA website.

Also, pictures of individual animals can also now be displayed in the Inquiry System beside a selected animal. offers calf crops with uniformity, good temperament, and more pounds at the auction market. F1 replacement heifers are also always in huge demand. That being said, I believe this continues to be the time for Hereford breeders to put their best foot forward where marketing is concerned. As the fall female and bull sales approach, this is a great time to make that first contact with new customers. Invite them to see your program. Always make sure you leave a business card or a brochure. Keep it within 50 or 75 miles of your place so it’s an easy trip for them. Lastly, always ask if you can call for follow up. Then MAKE THE CALL! If you forget, they will too. Touching base with past customers that have supported your program either at a sale or by private treaty is important too. It will keep them coming back. Whether it is new purebred or commercial prospects, it will work in both cases. Preparations are well under way for The Royal, Farmfair International and Canadian Western Agribition as well as other fall shows across Canada. The Royal will host the National Hereford Show in 2014, so start making plans now to attend. With Agribition moving its dates up this year, you will see some date changes to the sales in November. You can always refer to the schedule of events section in the August and October Digests and on the Canadian Hereford Association website. There is a great deal of time and planning that goes into these cattle shows whether small or big and your attendance is appreciated. I encourage breeders to either take cattle or watch the show. This keeps our sponsors engaged and makes it worth the time and effort for those who sit on the committees that bring the show together. Congratulations to the organizing committee for their tremendous hard work for creating a successful Bonanza 2013 in Brandon, Manitoba. Also, congratulations to all the juniors who participated - great job by all! The Canadian Hereford Digest side of the CHA continues to look for new ways to help you market your cattle.

Salt of the Earth

The Dewars of Remsheg Valley Acres By Brad Dubeau

D ire c to r of C o m m u nic atio n s

About 100 miles northwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, is the home of Mary and Paul Dewar of Remsheg Valley Acres - a well-known Polled Hereford operation, near the small but famous village of Pugwash. The road leading to the Dewars is dotted with one small farm after another, many of which are cowcalf operations. The area is steeped in national history, as is the farm operation itself.

In 1995, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded, in equal parts, to Joseph Rotblat, secretary general of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs and to the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, for their efforts to diminish the part played by nuclear arms in international politics and in the long run to eliminate such arms. Still today, thinkers from around the

He was a United Empire Loyalist and initially lived in Pennsylvania and New York. Prior to and during the American Revolution, Forshner never sided with the rebellion. He remained loyal to the British Crown and worked for the British military intelligence. Both of his American homes were

Paul came from Wallace, Nova Scotia, which is only a 10-minute drive from Pugwash. Following their marriage, they lived in Dartmouth, and then in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, for the next 20 years. Paul was an electrician and worked for the federal government. He was employed in the dockyard (harbour) in Halifax where he worked on the navy’s ships.

Cows are usually turned out to grass around the middle of May and come home around the first of November. They are wintered in open barns or shelters attached to yards. Calving begins in early January and cows are monitored closely, with frequent checks and with the help of a barn camera. Calves will be weaned earlier this year, in the first couple weeks of September. Weaned calves are hauled to another farm owned by the Dewars, a couple miles away. The steer calves are backgrounded for a month to a month and a half and then sold to Ken Lawless of Prince Edward Island for finishing. Ken has been purchasing Dewars’ steers for at least five years. Mary and Paul’s groups of steers have won a carcass competition that Ken has entered for three of the past four years. Heifers are also fed short-term and are all sold as breeding stock, either through private treaty, as consignments to the annual Atlantic Bonus sale in October, or into foreign markets. They have sold heifers locally, throughout the Maritimes, into Quebec and Ontario and more recently, into Kazakhstan and Russia.

Three or four bull calves are retained each year to market. The bull calves are entered into the Maritime Beef Testing Station in Nappan, Nova Scotia. Bulls enter the station at the end of October or the first of November. A committee then picks the bulls that will sell in the annual spring sale from the entire group in the station. The Dewars have had at least one bull selected to participate in most sales and the remainder are sold privately off the farm. Over the years, the Dewars have exhibited cattle at the Oxford Exhibition, at Dundas, the Atlantic Winter Fair and at Windsor and Truro exhibitions. They have showed many Grand and division champions and class winners at these shows over the years. The Dewars put up all their own hay until recently. All but 40 acres of their operation is now pastureland. That 40 acres is reserved for top quality small square bales of hay. Winter feed stores are now purchased and hauled in. Mary and Paul find Herefords to be easy to manage. “They are easy to live with, easy to house, easy to feed,” says Paul. “They

have a thicker hide than other breeds and winter better.â&#x20AC;? In recent years, Paul has had health issues so the couple is in the process of cutting back but they plan never to leave the farm. As long as they are physically able, they will farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love farming, and Paul loves me, and we both love the farm,â&#x20AC;? says Mary. A fire burned their main barn to the ground in 2004, killing 26 head, including three show heifers but not even that deterred the couple. They do, however, have help when needed from a neighbour - Derek Boyd â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who lives only minutes away from Mary and Paul. Their grown children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Paula and Peter - and their grandchildren, also pitch in on the farm, whenever time and opportunity permit. Paula is married to Douglas, and

both are teachers in Sackville, New Brunswick. They have two daughters - Emily and Sarah. Peter is married to Carrie and toget her t hey also have t wo daughters - Maggie and Bobby. Peter is following is Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps and is a hair stylist and works out of the basement of their home. His wife Carrie, is a Mental Health Nurse and is the Assistant Director at the Sunset Community Adult Centre in Pugwash. It is Maggie and Bobby who are particularly interested in the farm and are becoming more involved as they get older. Both are active in 4-H and plan to join the Canadian Junior Hereford Association this year. While Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Lynn did not remain active on the family farm, Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Laura, was very involved in 4-H and the Canadian Junior Hereford Association and

H E R E F O R D

became very interested in cattle and animals in general. Those activities encouraged her to become Dr. Laura Coulter, choosing a career path as a large and small animal veterinarian. Laura now lives in the family home on the farm in which Mary and her sisters grew up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These programs do a lot for our youth,â&#x20AC;? says Mary. Her niece Laura, she says, is a great moral support to her. Mary and Paul are active in their Hereford community and equally so in their local community. Paul is an Elder at the St. Mathewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church in Wallace, Nova Scotia. Mary continues to enjoy attending cattle sales and shows when possible. Most of their free time is spent with family on the farm or swimming at the cottage on the Atlantic Ocean.

Faces and Perspectives of a New Generation

Young Guns VII Kurtis Reid and Ben Alward By Catherine Brown

Kurtis Reid It’s 5:00 a.m. on Kurtis Reid’s second day at Agricultural College in Casper, Wyoming, when he and his team of 39 classmates load into three 15-passenger vans, each of them carrying steno notebooks. There is a 3.5-hour drive ahead to visit ranches where pens of cattle await to be evaluated. The team moves from one operation to another where the drill is basically the same: their

coach makes the official placings and shares teaching points, followed by the students’ evaluations and verbal reasons. Students also give reasons for their placings aloud in the van, on the way back to school; and in the grocery store and in parking lots and in other settings. Their coaches wanted to ensure these livestock-judgesto-be could reason efficiently and concentrate while giving those reasons, even in the

The year prev ious, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native, Kurtis Reid, received a scholarship to attend the Nebraska College of Technological Ag r iculture. He cont inued his education in Wyoming, where he earned an Associate of Agriculture Diploma in 2009. Kurtis then went on to attend West Texas A&M where

Canada for Matt Lautner Cattle; and he’s a very active partner in his family’s Hereford operation. And all other work aside, livestock and livestock judging are his passion! Kurtis grew up in town but always wanted to be a farmer. His family roots are agricultural and steeped in Hereford history and he has always been active in the family’s cattle enterprise. A farmer-slash-city guy, Kurtis calls himself a hybrid. He was the only one in his high school wearing Wranglers and cowboy boots but says he was never embarrassed but was, rather, proud of his roots. The Reid family registered its first Hereford in 1889, under The Cliffs Farm. This farm name represents one of the oldest active Hereford herds in existence in Canada. Kurtis’ family is one of the first to import Herefords to Western Canada. The original family members hailed from England and Scotland, immigrating to Ontario and then to Saskatchewan. Representing the fifth generation of Reids, along with his siblings, Kaitlyn and Kyle, Kurtis halter-broke his first show heifer for the 1998 Bonanza

Supreme Champion Bred & Owned Bonanza 2005

National Junior Hereford Show in Lloydminster, when he was eight years old. That was the beginning of his commitment to “the circuit”, even after that first heifer would eventually run him over and drag him, the following year at the Brandon, Manitoba Bonanza. Kurtis’ grandfather, Grant Reid, was a 4-H leader, ensuring that his own children, including Kurtis’ father David, were involved in as many cattle shows as possible. David was one of the first members of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association (CJHA), attending its ver y first national show in Red Deer, Alberta in 1980. Since then he has been an active adult advisor to the CJHA. “My father kept the cattle showing tradition of our family going when he introduced [us] to the showring,” says Kurtis in his family history on the family operation’s website (thecliffsfarm.com). “At Bonanza, parent involvement is against the rules because the show is meant to have junior members learn the ropes by doing it themselves,” writes Kurtis. “Since we had never been to a major show, a senior member named Chad Wilson taught us the ropes.” Since 1998, Kurtis has missed only two annual Bonanza shows. He has travelled to Denmark, to the USA, and throughout Canada from British Columbia to Nova Scotia, showing cattle. These national shows kindled Kurtis’ competitive spirit and he admits that he never wanted to lose. As a member of the CJHA throughout those years, Kurtis also acted as its

National Council President in 2007 and sat on the national board from 2004 until 2011. The Reid family first brought cattle to Regina’s Canadian Western Agribition in 1972, two years after the show was founded. Kurtis’ grandfather continued to exhibit there for 20 subsequent years. Consequently, cattle shows have been a big part of Kurtis Reid’s life. One of his mentors, Jeromy Charlton, first enlisted Kurtis’ help at 11 years of age when he travelled to help get cattle ready for a show in Billings, Montana. Then Kurtis attended Agribition at 14 years of age, to help Jeromy. Kurtis was also a 4-H member, in one of the largest beef clubs in Canada from the year 2000 until 2011. In 4-H, Kurtis met another of his mentors – Edmund Williams – whose steers Kurtis helped feed and whose show cattle Kurtis helped select, feed and halter-break. Kurtis has also dabbled in breeding Charolais cattle, with Edmund’s assistance. Kurtis married Selene last year, who recently finished her chartered accountant designation. Selene comes from a mixed grain and cattle operation in Consul, Saskatchewan. The couple’s goal remains steadfast and clear: to t ransit ion f rom their current Saskatoon home to establish and manage their own cattle operation. Beyond that, Kurtis envisions starting a local livestock judging team. He also wants to give back to the local 4-H community and junior Hereford Association. But in many ways, he has already done so. While still an active member of the CJHA, Kurtis was the one consistently lending a hand to inexperienced juniors. He volunteered his help and

into his position in the livestock feed business, where he is the youngest salesman by 15 years. But he will continue to evolve in his cattle partnership with his parents. In order to keep their herd current, while living in the city, the Reids have leased cattle for years. They have also shared many cattle in partnerships and continue to do so, with Jeromy Charlton, the Crittenden Brothers, Joe Vey Jr. and Lyle Heidecker, all wellknown Saskatchewan breeders. They currently own 45 cows, of which 34 are purebred and the rest commercial/”clubby”. About 90 per

father have instilled in him a love and passion for the breed and that he won’t be the last generation to quit. Kur t is says he works w it h a specialized mindset, using today’s technologies to make the most of a smaller cowherd than his grandfather once worked with. Genetic advances, feeding technologies and social media are among the new herd management tools available. Experience with the CJHA and Bonanza shows are among the things that helped prepare Kurtis for a career in livestock breeding and marketing. “Its programs gave more to me than I

The CJHA nurtured Kurtis’ confidence and ability to network, having met breeders and industry players across the country. There was pride in the fact that members had to do their own work at shows.

He has remained a consistent comforting guide to his fellow juniors and an avid enthusiast! A very positive person, he says his biggest challenge to-date has been the ability to afford his first farm, while finding someone willing to work with them. The land alone is at a premium and land values are up 30 per cent over five years in Saskatchewan. If forced to pick an alternate career, Kurtis says it would involve cattle still – in a herd management or sales management position. Kur t is descr ibes himself as a passionate and stubborn red-head but says he is also open to learn, from a business standpoint. His friendships are largely in the cattle business and his life, he says, is very cattle and family focused. He is a casual golfer though he says even that is a stretch! He says he has a lot of work to put

cent of their replacement heifers are home-bred. Some of their Hereford cows will be bred to “clubby” bulls to raise show heifers and steers and create a diversified market for their breeding stock. Kurtis is “amping up” the Reid family’s marketing efforts online and at shows with fancier displays. And he says he is not afraid to call people to promote their herd and sell cattle. “We’ll never be big but we want to run against the big dogs,” says Kurtis. That, he says, means raising “sound, quality, functional Herefords and club calves that are relevant in today’s marketplace.” The biggest challenge faced by the purebred industry today, according to Kurtis, is keeping up with trade and understanding we’re a global marketplace. Another challenge, he says, is managing the “ag message” and using tools such as social media to speak up and defend our industry. Why does t he H e r efo r d b r e e d still fit into Kurtis’ vision? “Herefords are us!” says Kurtis, “Herefords are the Reids.” Supporting the 124 -year history of Herefords i n t h e f a m i l y, Kurtis says that his g randfather and

could have ever asked,” he says. They are what led him to judge at schools in the U.S., which Kurtis now describes as an experience of a lifetime. “I had to go away from home – yes – but it afforded me a great experience and many friendships and financially, it wasn’t different from going to school in Canada,” he says. The CJHA nurtured Kurtis’ confidence and ability to network, having met breeders and industry players across the country. There was pride in the fact that members had to do their own work at shows. The experience led to a fitting “gig” in Denmark and to joining fitting crews in Wyoming where he ultimately went to school. The advice Kurtis gives to juniors still active in the association is “do everything.” By that, he means, taking part in all of the competitions and experiences offered, such as public speaking, fitting, showing, judging, art and photography, leadership and more. “Find out what you’re good at and push yourself,” says Kurtis. “If you don’t do it, you never become better.” And last but not least, he says, “always use sharp blades!” Kurtis had a good mentor of his own. His biggest inspiration in life, he says, is his dad David, who did everything he could to allow Kurtis and his siblings to go to all the cattle functions possible and supported them along the way. “I’m very close to my father,” he says. “We have gone to many shows

“Find out what you’re good at and push yourself,” says Kurtis. “If you don’t do it, you never become better.” And last but not least, he says, “always use sharp blades!” also always tried to find me the most competitive animals possible.” Kurtis describes his dad as a patient teacher. Ask Kurtis what he considers his biggest skill and he will say his drive. That drive resulted in him reaching the honours list in high school and his overall aggregate

Scholarship. For Matt Lautner Cattle, Kurtis succeeded in doubling semen sales in Western Canada from January to May, over the previous year. Still, his proudest accomplishment, he says, is marrying his wife Selene. And as spring 2013 turned to summer, the couple moved onto their new farm property, 30 minutes north of Saskatoon, realizing a dream come true but also marking a lot of beginnings

Ben Alward It’s up at 4:30 a.m. and a half hour bus ride from a work camp in Alberta to work sites in the oil and gas industry as a pipe-fitter and as foreman of a work crew. It’s 12 and sometimes 13-hour days, working for 14 consecutive days and then returning home to Meductic, New Brunswick for seven days before the cycle is repeated. Ben grew up on a Hereford operation along the Saint John River in western New Brunswick. Two years ago, the Digest profiled that small farm operation, interviewing Ben’s dad, David Alward who was then and who remains the Premier of New Brunswick. It is David’s grandfather who started the Hereford tradition in the family in the 1950s. Ben has been on the job in Alberta for a year and a half now, pipe-fitting in the field and inside plants. His last stint lasted a month as he and a crew of men replaced and fixed pipes on operations that were essentially shut down for maintenance. He has his own room out there with a shared washroom. Conditions aren’t so bad, he says. It’s good food prepared for you and lunches are premade. The company also books and pays for his flights back and forth from home. His last job was in a camp of 7,000 men but there are just 700 men in his current camp. It’s no secret that their jobs are well-paying and what young man can resist? It’s short-term pain

for long-term gain, in Ben’s case. After graduating high school, Ben earned his plumbing license and went on to apprentice in pipe-fitting. He would have preferred to farm for a living but he knows that is not a viable, sustainable option. So he first set himself up with a good trade, with hopes of buying land back home and establishing a cattle herd to be proud of. That is now the short-term goal in two years’ time. In the meantime, t h e f o u r- y e a r apprenticeship m u s t b e completed. It is a block system, in which 7,200 hours are required for his journeyman ticket. After each 1,800 hours, more schooling in math and sc ience is required, followed by one big test annually and an inter-provincial exam. Ben has one more block left so his apprenticeship i s no w t h r e e quarters complete. In his ter m as p r e m i e r, B e n’s fat her David Alward has championed

a West-East pipeline that would transport Alberta and Saskatchewan crude oil to a refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick. A spring article in the Financial Post cites Alward at a Toronto speaking engagement as saying “I want to see the day when the mother and father, the son or daughter leave their New Brunswick home in the morning to go work in the development of natural resources,

they will return for dinner that night, not three or four weeks later.” While at home, Ben spends a lot of time with the cattle. While the purebreds are all in his own name, he partners with his dad in the operation. He has 12 registered cows

Ben’s dad, he says, helped him learn pedigrees and encouraged his interest in cattle and for that he is grateful. He also learned a lot through 4-H and from nearby Hereford breeders Dale and Dwayne Black and their families.

Ben appreciates t he sense of community there is among beef farmers. He loves his rural roots and values the relationship he has with local farmers. He has established many friendships at shows across Canada and the U.S. and always enjoys meeting new people. He says he has at least six close friends in cattle showing circles. Ben was for years a member of the Countryside 4-H Beef and Dairy clubs, of which he is currently the leader, along with an assistant, for the times he cannot be there. Though agriculture in his area is dominated by potato farms, Ben says he is inspired by the resurgence in interest and membership in his beef club in the past couple years. Ben was four years old at his first show as a member of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association (CJHA). It was a Maritimes Field Day where he participated in a showmanship class. He attended his first Bonanza – the Canadian National Junior show in the year 2000 at 10 years of age, in the province of Prince Edward Island. In 2005, he travelled to Ontario and was the only junior with a heifer to represent the Maritimes. He is grateful for the help of Greg Hill and the Corps at that Ontario show. In 2008, Ben won the Bred & Owned Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion at Bonanza in Truro, Nova Scotia. In 2010 he attended Bonanza in Quebec and won the Grand Aggregate award for placing highest in all the

Bonanza competitions. He was also named Premier Breeder of the show and was honoured that year to be the recipient of Triara’s Ambassador Award, for show ing k indness, professionalism, team spirit and acting in a mentorship role with his fellow competitors. That earned him the experience of working with Justamere Farms through a national Hereford show at Agribition. Aside from animal husbandry, Ben’s 4-H and CJHA experiences taught him people skills. And the experience of caring for animals, he says, has taught him dedication and a good work ethic. Breeders like Allan Marshall and other successful Hereford breeders have been his inspiration along the way. Ben now advises juniors “to ask questions and take advice from everyone because you can never learn too much.” “Don’t be afraid of failure,” he says “because it’s the best way to learn.” As a member of the CJHA, Ben wishes he had been a little more involved on the junior board of directors but he says he always had some type of job off the farm through high school. He currently sits on t he New Br unsw ick Hereford Association board of directors and says he would like to be more politically involved on industry boards in the future, when he is settled on his own place down East. Ben says he will always balance work in his trade with cattle. “I’ll never get rid of them,” he says, referring to his Herefords. Why Hereford? Well, it’s a family history thing, he says. And besides, he knows the genetics and “they are easy-doing, maintenance-free cattle that are good mothers.” And Ben says he is proud to represent good cattle in his breed, in an area where Herefords are plentiful. He might have also said that Herefords are “adaptable”. In one funny story, Ben relates his family’s experience on their hobby farm in the earlier years with several types of livestock…. “We always raised a few pigs for meat every year but one year’s crop was different. We started not being able to keep them in their pen and ended up letting them roam with

the cattle. As the summer went on, we realized they had become way too attached and that one cow was letting them nurse her,” he says. “It was nothing out of the ordinary to see two pigs and a calf nursing the cow at once! It was the best bacon I’ve ever tasted!” Asked to describe himself in one word, Ben says “modest”. Then he says “hard-working”. I think his Hereford friends would agree with both. Ben is now putting in the manpower and hours to realize a

H E R E F O R D

lifelong dream to own and raise his own Herefords indefinitely.

Hereford Residual Feed Intake (RFI) Project By Libby Laycraft

C H A B re e d D evelo p m e nt C o o rdina to r

Trials 1 and 2 of the Hereford Residual Feed Intake (RFI) Project have been completed with the data currently being analyzed by Drs. John Basarab and John Crowley. End-of-test weight data, ultrasound and preliminary RFI data have been forwarded to participating breeders, who received results only on the bulls they put on test. The RFI-related results consisted of RFI-fat, RG-fat and RIG-fat. These traits are adjusted to ultrasound backfat thickness. RFI-fat refers to residual feed intake. This identifies animals with lower maintenance requirements and like a golf score; the lower the value the better. However, this must be accompanied by adequate growth and a balance of other traits. RG-fat refers to residual gain and identifies animals with superior growth at equal body weight, body composition and feed intake. In this case, positive values represent superior growth. RIG-fat refers to residual feed intake and gain, expressed as standard deviations from the means of RFI and RG. RFI values are multiplied by -1 to identify animals with superior metabolic efficiency and superior growth efficiency. This is the key result to look at right now

because this value identifies bulls that are fast growing and consume less feed. A total of 329 bulls were on test for Trials 1 and 2. Ultimately, 316 RFI records were collected. Records were not possible for 13 of the bulls due to non-linear growth curves, as a result of health and feeding issues, which required medical treatment or removal from the trial. This is a three-year project. Therefore, the data collected and the results calculated are still preliminary. At this point, comparison of bulls beyond the trial contemporary group is not possible. Dr. Crowley is currently working on preliminary Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) based on the RFI data collected so far. In the meantime, breeders can use the RFI data that they received to get an idea of how and where their bulls compared on the RFI traits and get an idea on the variation that exists between animals in the same trial. As the project continues and more data is accumulated, a valuable breed improvement tool will be created. CHA breeders are encouraged to participate in the upcoming trials over the next two years, allowing their base breeding stock to be represented in this ground level research.

The Canadian Hereford Association encourages Hereford breeders to contact Libby Laycraft at libby@hereford.ca or to call the CHA office at 403-275-2662 to enter bulls for the fall and winter trials.

On the Board

Board Governance and the Roles, Rules & Responsibilities of Board Members By Catherine Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

“ Vo l u n t e e r i s m i s a wonderful tool, allowing people to give back to the causes and organizations they are passionate about,” says Rob Flack, CEO of Canadian feed company, Masterfeeds Inc. and past president of the Ontario Hereford Association. “With volunteerism, a lot of commerce is done. But boards are only as good as the people that sit on them.” Flack has presided on at least a dozen agricultural organization boards, as well as the corporate board of Masterfeeds Inc. Without governing boards of directors, hundreds of agricultural organizations across Canada would have no policy, strategy, structure or direction, as pointed out in a September 2006 issue of the Royal Bank of Canada’s Agricultural Business Review, featuring Canadian

to an organization’s success and sustainability,” says Sobel & Co., LLC, in their 2008 report about Nonprofit Board Governance. “So why leave it to chance?”

What is governance?

“Governance is about how direction is set and how control is exercised,” says Stephenson. “It has to do with strategies surrounding the purpose and objectives of an organization.” “Governance is more than ‘the Board’,” as explained in Board Governance Classics, a compilation of articles by the Canadian Society of Association Executives. “It is an entire system or web of promise, of organization, of responsibility and of accountability.” Governance is also “real life”, it says - not theory or models. When it gets down to the nitty gritty, governance is about performance reviews of the executive director, about facing

Board members are ultimately responsible for the perpetuation of the association – a responsibility that cannot be relegated to management. Its key and single most important role, according to Flack, is to select an effective CEO or General Manager. Hereford Association (CHA) General Manager Gordon Stephenson. “[But] governance is not something that’s in the forefront of people’s minds when they volunteer to be on a board,” says Stephenson. “Often people are not exposed to board governance until they are already involved.” “A lot of people, including the staff of agricultural organizations, don’t understand what governance is,” says Stephenson. “[Yet] a highly functioning board is the single most important key

a shortfall in funding, considering program expansion to meet needs with constrained resources and about strategic planning.

Challenges Inherent in Agricultural Boards

“Governance accounts for one of the biggest failings of agricultural boards,” says Stephenson. That is partly because farmers and ranchers are commonly not familiar with human resource issues, he says. When that is the case, it is wise to have people in an advisory capacity, he says, such as lawyers,

accountants or Human Resource professionals. Boards are also often guilty of not talking about strategic direction, according to Stephenson. Again, farmers and ranchers are typically used to thinking just one year ahead on their own operations, about breeding or planting or banking needs on a year-to-year basis. One of the biggest challenges on the national Hereford Association board over the years, has been that of provincial directors wearing their provincial hats and not their national hats, according to Stephenson. The Canadian board should only deal with the issues that affect the Canadian association as a whole, he says; not just individual regions. “Generally speaking, people come in with their local interests at heart,” says Flack. There is a need, he says, to look at the bigger picture and understand that they are there for the common good of the whole association. “If we don’t have board members looking after the Canadian Hereford Association interests, who will?” asks Stephenson. Yet another common mistake made by board directors is misunderstanding their roles and getting too involved in the association’s operational issues. Furthermore, there is the challenge of holding people accountable on volunteer boards, according to Flack. “Some take their role seriously and some don’t,” he says. It helps when there are cheerleaders for the organization on board, according to Doug Fee, interim manager of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council (CBBC) and former general manager of the Canadian Angus Association (CAA). No matter the board structure or protocols, any board will work if its members are working with a good mindset, according to Fee. Likewise, Flack underlines the

importance of serious, like-minded people on a board.

The Board’s Role

As noted in Board Governance Classics, “the challenge is to create an optimum relationship between the full-time professional operators empowered to get things done and part-timers who do not concentrate on the business with the same intensity but who have valuable perspectives, often more objectivity and who are ultimately

to Flack. A governance board, otherwise known as a policy board, is one that hires a general manager and supports that manager where possible, without running the show. Doug Fee says it is most difficult to transition from governing boards, in which board members manage the organization without a supporting staff, to policy boards, which have a manager to work for them and make the day-to-day decisions. Policy boards, such as many large breed association boards, should be

A governance board, otherwise known as a policy board, is one that hires a general manager and supports that manager where possible, without running the show. -Rob Flack accountable.” “It behooves any organization to ensure board members are properly oriented,” says Stephenson. When he first joined the association, Stephenson says he had a speaker come in to talk to the national board about the role of board members relative to the role of CHA staff. CHA board members are also given orientation binders and letters. The Angus Association has face-toface orientation sessions regarding CAA policies, rules and regulations and the expectations of all board members. Board members are ultimately responsible for the perpetuation of the association – a responsibility that cannot be relegated to management. Its key and single most important role, according to Flack, is to select an effective CEO or General Manager. Otherwise, the board is responsible for the association’s strategic direction and ensuring its financial health, while monitoring performance and risk. It must also be accountable to its members. Board members must distinguish between management boards and governance boards, according

careful not to make decisions for the General Manager, thereby rendering his or her role ineffective, according to Fee. Board members must, rather, set the organization’s long-term goals and then reflect confidence in their general manager’s ability to accomplish those goals, he says. “Many boards need to be reminded of this,” says Fee. Some presidents

for enthusiastic directors who have management experience and want to be involved, says Fee. Our boards are better served by thinkers and evaluators, he says. And we should be mindful of that when electing board representatives. Strategic planning and advocacy is primarily the role of the policy board member. That includes contact with the membership, according to Fee; not for the advancement of their own business interests, but to help determine policies for the association. And at some point during their tenure, they will have to defend the association’s manager to its members and it is their duty to do so. That being said, the board must retain total accountability for the association and total authority over it, according to Sobel & Co. LLC. It is summed up this way: “The board needs to be able to make the distinction that allows them to walk a fine line, empowering the staff by giving them room for creativity, flexibility and innovation without giving up control of the organization’s purpose.”

Responsibilities of the Board

The board of directors is ultimately legally responsible for the success of the association and is liable for its failure, according to Stephenson. It is also liable for the misdoings of its staff or members. The CHA

But that is what the association pays its manager to do. They should not direct the manager where to spend money but should be asking, rather, if he or she is accomplishing what is needed. They should mould the long-range plans while the manager looks after the day-to-day details of running the association. This can be frustrating

has insurance to cover such eventualities, he says. Boards of directors have six distinct legal responsibilities, according to guidelines in Board Governance Classics, as follows: 1. Set Direction with a focus on strategic issues and resisting the temptation to meddle in staff management affairs. 2. Monitor organizational

performance Stewarding assets and managing risk Ensure board succession and renewal, selecting members based on skills, competencies and abilities to contribute, not on celebrity status. Hiring and evaluating the general manager Accountability to members

Stephenson’s Advice: s

For agricultural boards working on succession, think of seeking breeders that are also professionals that might contribute to the board. Or identify and enlist outside experts that can offer fresh perspectives or knowledge on subjects where the board lacks experience.

The CHA director’s manual lists the following additional responsibilities: Directors shall: 1. Keep abreast of industry news 2. Attend and engage in meetings 3. Read and evaluate reports 4. Maintain the privacy and confidentiality of member and association issues.

Fee’s advice:

Finally…Know the Rules!

Flack’s Advice:

The chairman of the board, in particular, should know Robert’s Rules of Order, according to Flack. These rules, according to Stephenson, pertain to meeting protocols and how to resolve issues that arise. They are described as common rules and procedures for deliberation and debate in order to place the whole membership on the same footing and speaking the same language, according to www.robertsrules.org . Refer to this website or to the cheat sheet version of Robert’s Rules of Order for Beginners at: http://gsa.ucalgary.ca/about/docs/ Robers-Rules-Cheat-Sheet.pdf

s

Board members should only consider input from association members that is constructive for the whole association.

s

In board meetings, all members must support final board decisions, even if they argued against any of them. It is their responsibility to explain to the membership why or how board decisions were reached and why it is best for all.

s

If you don’t have the time or commitment to serve on a board, don’t volunteer

s

Read documents before meetings and be prepared.

s

Check your ego at the door. If you disagree with a motion, do so respectfully. Otherwise, the whole flow of the meeting is disrupted.

s

Understand the constitution you are dealing with. That’s important.

s

At the beginning of each term, outline goals of the board.

s

If you are participating as a board member, have fun and be passionate about your role.

Progress & Tradition Benwyn Farms

By Catherine Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

Bill and Doug Bentley and t he ir w iv e s and partners, Bernice and Judy, respectively, of Progress, British Columbia, treated their aging father, Henry, to dinner during a family visit sometime in the eighties. As the founder of this well-established Hereford operation and in typical farmer fashion, Henry finished his LAST BITE AND SAID h7ELL n LETS GET OUT there to feed those cows.â&#x20AC;? Bill says his dad was remembering the day of the square baler and perhaps even years earlier, when cows had to be fed at least twice a day, by throwing bales into mangers and breaking off twine by hand. The round baler, says Bill & Bernice and Doug and Judy, was the single best thing that ever happened to their operation and that was a tough concept for their father Henry to wrap his mind around. The last year that they put up small square bales, they made 40,000 bales. They had the help of a stacker but they were all hauled by hand. 3TILL TODAY THERE ARE A LOT OF REMNANTS of the past in this place ironically called Progress. Ironic, even moreso, because only the place name remains. The place named Progress once feature a lonely coffee shop and grocery store but it was never rebuilt after a fire burned it down in the seventies. Only a small informal post office remains. Bernice Bentley ran the Progress Post Office for 30 years before passing the duty onto another local. A small wooden building just inside their laneway, flanking the house, was

WHERE SHE DID BUSINESS 4HE "ENTLEYS yard was a place where Bill and Doug and families could visit with NEIGHBOURS n FREQUENTLY .OW ONLY the old building remains, with a lot of good memories. The farmyard featuring many older but functional log buildings and corrals, is shaded by Poplars. In fact, poplars would rule the environment HERE IF THEY WERENT CONTROLLED Hailing originally from Bancroft, Ontario, Henry Bentley moved to "RITISH #OLUMBIA IN THE LATE S 7HILE WORKING AT AN )( DEALERSHIP in town and doing a lot of contract thrashing, he cleared the land, which IS NOW KNOWN AS "ENWYN &ARMS )T was while thrashing for a farmer in High River, Alberta that Henry met THAT FARMERS DAUGHTER -ABEL THE woman he would ultimately marry. Henry broke the land with an old tractor and breaking plough until he brought in a new CAT from I.H.. Other CATs have been acquired over the YEARS TO CLEAR TREES )TS AN ONGOING task, the Bentleys know well. Every strip of Poplars that is cleared is good pastureland for a short time until the tree stand grows back thicker and stronger than imaginable. Clearing them, as it turns out, also does a good job of spreading Poplar seeds. Henry Bentley introduced cows to the operation early, accepting other cows from the area and a shared bull. Many of the cows were dual-purpose. "ENWYN &ARMS IS NOW A FULL mEDGED Hereford operation managed by Bill and Doug and their wives, along with ONE OF "ILLS SONS -ONTE (ENRY PASSED AWAY IN  AT THE AGE 71

Reflecting their selection efforts, the herd is a beautiful group of big ribbed moderate to large females with good udders who are getting the job done with some stout, long-sided growthy calves. The cowherd begins calving in midMarch and is sent out in groups to early pastures that have trees for shelter and where bedding is put out when needed. Each pasture group numbers 30 cows and a bull and each

group runs in one to three quarter sections, respectively. Calves are left on cows when they are brought close to home in October, allowing calves to adjust to hay before they are weaned. At weaning, the Bentleys run a couple heifers or dry cows with the calves and all of this seems to help their transition. Herefords have consistently sold well in their country, say the Bentleys. They are hardy and they cross well to other breeds and they have a good market here. There is not hing par t icularly distinctive about their operation, they say, except that they are grateful that their location allows them distance from large populations and encroaching development. There are simply not a lot of people around. The area, which is a relatively open, rolling landscape, is reminiscent of the Alberta foothills. But depending on the spot, it is very much like the prairies, with some large gullies. It is

generally cattle country. Other local industries that dominate the countryside are oil and gas and lumber. Coal is also mined in the area. And hydro-generating windmills are popping up around the countryside. )T IS 0EACE 2IVER COUNTRY NEAR &ORT 3T John and Dawson Creek. It is close to the Alberta border in the region of Grande Prairie.

They survived it all with a sense of humour. 4HEIR FUNNIEST STORY DOESNT INVOLVE a Hereford but rather an old Jersey milk cow named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barbâ&#x20AC;?, which would come to the house door at chore time each day and ring the door bell. If they had to take over â&#x20AC;&#x153;dadsâ&#x20AC;? operation again, would they? Bill and Doug say definitely â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;?. And little if anything they would do differently.

TWISTED Fact, Fiction and Opinion about bull testicle conformation By Catherine Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a defect. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nonissue. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unknown. It depends on who you talk to. The science has not caught up to the opinions about twisted or rotated testicles on breeding bulls to either prove or disprove them. Dr. Alber t Bar th, Professor of 4HERIOGENOLOG Y AT THE 7ESTERN

twisted testicles, aside from the articles that say what testicles SHOULD LOOK LIKE v SAYS 3ASKATCHEWAN Hereford breeder and practicing veterinarian, Dr. Doug Mann. The cause of rotated or twisted testicles is a ligament that is off to one side, according to Mann. If it is not in the centre, it tends to twist the testicles, he says.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think a commercial cattleman should worry about it at all when buying a bull if his Breeding Soundness Evaluation is satisfactory,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The twist should not affect the Breeding Soundness Classification if there is no hindrance to temperature regulation.â&#x20AC;? - Dr. Roger Davis. #OLLEGE OF 6ETERINAR Y -EDICINE 7#6- AND A NOTED EXPERT IN BULL fertility, says the subject of twisted testicles is not generally discussed in textbooks and scientific journal articles. Therefore there is not a lot to say about the condition, he says. ! COLLEAGUE OF "ARTHS AND ASSOCIATE Professor of Ther iogenolog y at 7#6- $R #OLIN 0ALMER SAYS THE long-term effects of rotated testicles are still unknown at this point. A scientific literature search on the topic turns up next to nothing, he says. h6IRTUALLY NO ONE IN THE SCIENTIFIC community has paid attention to 80

Dr. Roger Davis, veterinarian and President of Davis-Rairdon Embryo Transplants Ltd. of Crossfield, Alberta, describes it as a small fold of skin

interfere with temperature control, that can be considered a problem,â&#x20AC;? he says. But that is rare, he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was taught that twisted testicles were not considered a defect, providing the testicles are normal and can move up and down freely,â&#x20AC;? says Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not having a twist is what I call a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nicetyâ&#x20AC;? but not a necessity,â&#x20AC;? he says. h)TS A LITTLE BIT LIKE A LINE BACK WHICH DOESNT HAVE ANY FUNCTIONAL EFFECT

but some people get hung up on it.â&#x20AC;? Davis says he believes this issue is a matter of personal preference. h) DONT T H I N K A COM MERC IA L cattleman should worry about it at all when buying a bull if his Breeding 3OUNDNESS %VALUATION IS SATISFACTORY v says Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The twist should not AFFECT THE "REEDING 3OUNDNESS Classification if there is no hindrance to temperature regulation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are definitely much more important things to select against, like bad feet, vaginal prolapses and poor teats or udders,â&#x20AC;? he says. Davis, Mann and Barth have all noticed that twisted testicles seem to be moderately to highly heritable, as they have seen the condition repeatedly in specific, related groups.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are definitely much more important things to select against, like bad feet, vaginal prolapses and poor teats or udders,â&#x20AC;? -Dr. Roger Davis above the scrotum, which is off to one side, causing twisting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the twist is severe enough to

H E R E F O R D

D I G E S T

DETSIWT also believes the conformational defect to be likely heritable, though he is unaware of how it is inherited. 7HILE HE ADDS THAT HE HAS NEVER SEEN a bull with impaired fertility due to twisted testicles, he says the potential is there to restrict blood flow, thereby affecting fertility.

adds that twisted testicles are more difficult to measure and measuring testicles is a well-used tool to determine fertility. Palmer calls the condition a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blemishâ&#x20AC;? ON THE BREED THAT SHOULDNT BE ANY more acceptable than a red face on a Hereford.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breeders should make every effort to identify affected bulls and to work with geneticists to eliminate the problem,â&#x20AC;? -Dr. Colin Palmer h/VER THE YEARS )VE ENCOUNTERED THE condition on rare occasions,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Albert Barth. On one location where there was a high incidence of leftSIDED  DEGREE ROTATION THERE WAS considerable inbreeding, suggesting a hereditary basis for the condition, he says. Nevertheless, Barth says THERE WASNT AN INORDINATE AMOUNT OF infertility in the affected bulls. 3TILL "ARTH IS OF THE OPINION THAT br e e der s shou ld avoid t he se conformation abnormalities, even if fertility is not affected. h7HO WANTS THIS KIND OF THING TO GET into the gene pool of their herd?â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buyers will always shy away from this kind of thing.â&#x20AC;? Mapletoft and Palmer are of the same opinion. h7E ALWAYS SELECTED AGAINST TWISTED testicles,â&#x20AC;? says Mapletoft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These bulls have the potential for problems.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To ignore it and not select against it HARMS THE BREED v SAYS 0ALMER h)TS a conformational defect that could affect fertility.â&#x20AC;? 7HILE THIS IS ALL CONJECTURE 0ALMER

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breeders should make every effort to identify affected bulls and to work with geneticists to eliminate the problem,â&#x20AC;? says Palmer. Dr. Doug Mann evaluates semen on over 1,000 bulls annually, across all breeds. He sees this condition in all breeds. Twisted testicles, he says, do not concern him if semen quality is good. He believes it is more of a cosmetic issue for purebred breeders who can often be a fickle about particular cosmetic traits. h7HEN ) FIRST STARTED IN THE BREED

we ran into the same comments about pigmentation around the eyes with some people suggesting those animals should be selected against and should be not be registerable,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. Does the degree of twist have any bearing on semen quality? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they palpate normally and have a good neck, the degree of twist is IRRELEVANT v ACCORDING TO -ANN h)TS ONE OF THE LAST THINGS )D CULL A BULL for.â&#x20AC;? $R 3HEILA 3CHMUTZ A LEADER IN THE

field of animal genetics and Professor AT THE 5NIVERSITY OF 3ASKATCHEWANS D e p a r t m e nt o f A n i m a l a n d 0OULTRY 3CIENCES BELIEVES THAT ANY conformational abnormality such as twisted testicles, which prevails in a breed at a rate of more than five per cent, should be further studied. A confidential reporting system to the association should be in place, she says, so that trends can be illuminated and followed up on. Generally speaking, the scientists tend to ere on the side of caution. Those working in the field are not worried until their experience proves there is a reason for concern. Experience says twisted testicles are VIRTUALLY A NON ISSUE 3CIENCE SAYS ITS still an unknown.

general managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report Canadian Hereford Association

By Gordon Stephenson

G EN ER A L M A N AG ER , CA N A D IA N H ER EFO R D A S S O CIATI O N

The Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) Board of Directors has, for the past five years, prioritized the development of the export market to Russia and Kazakhstan. CHA board members and I have travelled to both countries over this time period. In most cases, travel has been incorporated into Ministerial missions headed by Agriculture and Agri Food Canada (AAFC). These foreign markets are also a key focus for the Ministry and for Minister Ritz. Other parties involved in these missions are representatives from other breed associations, Canadian export agents, agri-business people and Ministerial staff. The Canadian Hereford Association has worked very closely with Mr. Ritzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department and its staff. Having the Minister actively involved in these missions has resulted in the successful positioning of Canada as a preferred supplier of agricultural products, genetics and services. Our main competitions in these two markets are the USA and Australia and to a lesser degree, some European countries. The main breeds of interest are Holstein, Hereford and Angus and to-date, both Russia and Kazakhstan have sourced most of their Angus genetics from the USA and their Holstein and Hereford genetics from Canada. Our exporters have done a very good job in promoting and servicing the sale of genetics. Our association works very closely

Your association is working with the market secretariat in Ottawa to develop and deliver training courses, knowledge transfer and technical support in both Russia and Kazakhstan, in order to support optimal management and performance of exported Canadian genetics. with these exporters, supporting them as much as possible, to maintain and develop these markets. It is the joint efforts of government, exporters and the breed association that has allowed our members to enjoy the sale of live animals, embryos and semen these past five years. Sales of live animals and embryos in 2012 totaled over $3,250,000. I am often asked about the culture and farming practices in Russia and Kazakhstan and how our cattle have adapted to this new environment. It is important to say that there are two distinct worlds in both countries. Moscow, and Astana are two very modern cities. Young people walk around with holes in their designer jeans and texting their friends, just as they do in Canada. In the country, it is the exact opposite, with small villages of peasant peoples and very poor infrastructure in terms of roads and rural services. The farms that receive our cattle are owned by wealthy businessmen whose main interests and revenues are non-agricultural enterprises in industries such as oil and gas. Their agricultural enterprises are supported by government incentive programs, which give them access to and ownership of large tracts of land. In most cases, the farm labour is poorly trained and lacking in knowledge about cattle husbandry. Our exporters do their best to provide technical support and advise farm managers on proper farming methods and animal management. In view of this situation, your association is working with the market secretariat in Ottawa to develop and deliver training courses, knowledge transfer and technical support in both Russia and Kazakhstan, in order to support optimal management and performance of exported Canadian genetics. The CHA intends to sponsor a farm school in its planning stages in Kazakhstan, to train current farm labour on the basics of animal care and husbandry. We are also developing training materials for a livestock consulting centre in Orenburg, Russia. These programs will be launched later in 2013 and 2014. In summary, these countries are very important to our membership as a continuing market for open and bred females. It is safe to estimate that over $10 million in sales into these markets has occurred since the first export of live animals several years ago.

Au cours des cinq dernières années, le Conseil d’administration de l’Association Canadienne Hereford (ACH) a placé une priorité du développement des marchés d’exportations vers la Russie et le Kazakhstan. Certains membres de l’ACH et moi-même avons voyagé envers les deux pays au cours de cette période. Dans la plupart des cas, les voyages ont été incorporés avec des missions ministérielles dirigées par Agriculture et Agroalimentaire Canada (AAC). Ces marchés étrangers sont également un élément essentiel pour le ministère et le Ministre Ritz. Autres parties concernés par ces missions sont des représentants de d’autres associations de races, les agents canadiens à l’exportation, les agri-entrepreneurs et le personnel ministériel. L’Association Canadienne Hereford a travaillé très étroitement avec le ministère de M. Ritz et son personnel. Notre relation étroite avec le ministre a entraîné une position favorable pour le Canada entant que fournisseur privilégié de produits agricoles, de génétique et de services. Nos principales compétiteurs pour ces deux marchés sont les États-Unis et l’Australie et dans une moindre mesure, certains pays européens. Les principales races d’intérêt sont Holstein, Hereford et Angus et à date, la Russie et le Kazakhstan ont acquis la plupart de leurs animaux Angus des États-Unis et leur génétique Holstein et Hereford du Canada. Nos exportateurs ont fait un très bon travail dans la promotion et le soutien de vente de génétique. Notre association travaille très étroitement avec les exportateurs, en les appuyant tout autant que possible, dans le but commun de maintenir

Votre association travaille en collaboration avec le Secrétariat de marché à Ottawa pour élaborer et offrir des cours de formation, de transfert de connaissances et de soutien technique à la Russie et au Kazakhstan, afin de favoriser une gestion optimale et pour assurer la performance de la génétique canadienne exportée. et de développer ces marchés. C’est grâce aux efforts conjoints entre le gouvernement, les exportateurs et l’association que nos membres ont pu profiter de ventes d’animaux vivants, d’embryons et de semence au cours des cinq dernières années. Les ventes d’animaux vivants et d’embryons en 2012 ont totalisé 3 250 000 $. On me pose souvent des questions sur la culture et les pratiques agricoles en Russie et au Kazakhstan et comment nos bovins sont adaptés à ce nouvel environnement. Il est important de dire qu’il y a deux univers distincts dans ces deux pays. Moscou et Astana sont deux villes très modernes. Les jeunes gens se promènent avec des trous dans leurs jeans tout en textant leurs amis sur leur appareil mobile, comme ils le font au Canada. En campagne, c’est exactement le contraire, avec de petits villages de paysans et une infrastructure très pauvre en ce qui concerne les routes et les services ruraux. Les fermes qui reçoivent nos bovins sont la propriété d’hommes d’affaire riches dont les principaux intérêts et revenus sont des entreprises non agricoles dans les industries telles que le pétrole et le gaz. Leurs entreprises agricoles sont pris en charge par des programmes incitatifs gouvernementaux, qui leur donnent accès à la propriété de grandes étendues de terre. Dans la plupart des cas, la main d’œuvre agricole est mal formée et manquent de connaissances sur l’élevage de bétail. Nos exportateurs font de leur mieux pour fournir un appui technique et conseiller les gestionnaires d’exploitations agricoles sur les méthodes de culture appropriées et sur la gestion des animaux. Face à cette situation, votre association travaille en collaboration avec le Secrétariat de marché à Ottawa pour élaborer et offrir des cours de formation, de transfert de connaissances et de soutien technique à la Russie et au Kazakhstan, afin de favoriser une gestion optimale et pour assurer la performance de la génétique canadienne exportée. L’ACH a l’intention de parrainer une école agricole dans ses étapes de planification au Kazakhstan, pour former la main d’œuvre actuelle au niveau des soins des animaux et de l’élevage en général. Nous développons également du matériel de support et de formation pour un centre d’élevage et de consultation à Orenbourg, en Russie. Ces programmes seront lancés plus tard en 2013 et 2014. En résumé, ces pays représentent un marché très importants pour nos membres qui ont des femelles à vendre. On peut estimer que plus de 10 millions de dollars en ventes s’est produit depuis la première exportation d’animaux vivants il y a plusieurs années.

President’s Report Since our AG M in April, O ntario Hereford breeders have been fairly quiet looking after their cows & calves and planting spring crops during the long drawn-out and often wet arrival of spring and summer. There is however an enthusiasm building for what promises to be a busy and exciting year which beganwith our Ontario junior show near Ottawa June 28-30. In August, eight of our juniors attended Bonanza in Manitoba. Breeders are actively getting cattle ready for the many zone banner shows as well as the MOE shows held in each

The open show on Saturday, Nov 2nd will be evaluated by L a n c e L e a c h m a n , M a i d s to n e , Saskatchewan.

Secretary-Manager’s Report At the time of preparing this report, finished cattle prices are quoted at an all-time high in Ontario. In contrast, cow numbers in our province are the lowest they have been in the last ten years. There is no doubt that this decreased number has had a negative effect on the sale of bulls and females this spring. Thus, we are facing the challenge of capturing greater market share of the existing beef industry. The need for us to apply all scientific means in the breeding programs of our Hereford cattle will be greater as we seek to swing the total beef production chain into a profitable

Greetings from the East! What a great year we have been having here in the Maritimes! It seems that it has been a while since I last wrote so I thought I would bring you all up to speed with the events. The year 2012 ended with three purebred sales in the Maritimes. All three sales were well-attended with some excellent cattle going up for bid. The 2013 annual general meeting of the Maritimes Hereford Association was held in Oxford, Nova Scotia, at the Cumberland County Exhibition Grounds, in conjunction with the East Coast Round Up. The meeting was well attended. A great presentation was made by Brad Dubeau, CHA communications manager, who outlined the latest developments at the CHA. The East Coast Round Up was well attended by Juniors with 26 members representing all three Maritime provinces. Mark Trueman, from Thunderbrook Farms, was the judge for Conformation and Showmanship classes. The Grand Champion for the weekend was a 2-year-old cow with bull calf at foot, owned by Andrew Meekins, of Truro N.S. We thank the Nova Scotia members for hosting this great weekend. With this great weather we have been having, haying season is well underway, and already finished in most parts of the Maritimes. We have now turned our sights to our Hereford exhibitions. Not only is this a time for members to exhibit the hard work and dedication they put into the Hereford breed, it is also a time for many members to reconnect with other Hereford members, many of whom we only see at show time. Cheers!

As summer flies by, I can’t help but wonder where it all went! It is part way through August already and so far it has been quite the rainy Manitoba summer. With winter sticking around much longer than usual last spring, it seems like we’ve hardly had a hot summer at all. The Manitoba Hereford Association (MHA) has had a busy year so far, with a kick-off at the Lundar Bull Sale on April 20th, featuring 27 Hereford bulls. The two high-sellers were from

Leondard Poholka MANAGER’S REPORT Alberta is still basking in the success of the World Hereford Conference last summer. It was a great feeling for the Canadian Hereford Association to pull off such an amazing event. This was achieved by way of excellent leadership and efficient committee chairpersons. This event will remain in our collective memories for many years to come. The Balog Auction British Breeds Event in October was another opportunity for Hereford breeders to gather. The AHA provided sponsorship for the lunch meal that was provided. The Medicine Hat Pen Show in December was also another success. The Northern Alberta Hereford Club, under the direction of Al Fenton, hosted the 5th Hereford Genes Event. Once again, the AHA provided some sponsorship dollars to this worthwhile event. The Northern Club also managed the AHA booth at the Canadian Bull Congress in Camrose in January. Another Northern Club event, of course, is the Hardisty Field Day. This year will be their 19th annual and is scheduled for Thursday, August 15th. It seems to grow every year and last year was no exception with 193 bull calf entries and 18 pens of heifers.

Hello fellow Hereford Enthusiasts, It h a s b e e n a g r eat h o n o r a n d pleasure to serve as your President for the last year. I attended my first National Council Meeting as a delegate in 2008. Through the years I have met so many amazing people.

Legacy Award Memorial Scroll Honour Roll

The Canadian Hereford Association honours individuals who are recognized as leaders in the development of the Hereford breed in Canada. This Award is not limited to Hereford breeders. Guidelines for the award recognize that many people on the perimeters of the Hereford industry make outstanding contributions as employees, elected representatives, research scientists, livestock specialists, etc. For these reasons, it is the intention of the Canadian Hereford Association to consider everyone associated with the Hereford industry in bestowing such awards. We place on the Honour Roll those living persons who we deem to have been most instrumental to the well being of the industry. A Memorial Scroll recognizes leaders who have passed on. It is not a coincidence that those persons who have made an outstanding contribution to the Hereford industry are also very much involved with their families in community affairs. In many instances, while we know them best for their leadership in the Hereford industry, they are also leaders in other phases of agricultural production. The assistance and knowledge of such men and women improves the well being of everyone who comes in contact with them. Many of our Canadian Hereford industry leaders have been recognized nationally and internationally for their unselfish dedication to the improvement of life for their fellow man. The Board of Directors, CANADIAN HEREFORD ASSOCIATION

Legacy Award Finley & Janice Cameron

The Cameron family put its roots down over 100 years ago in Ontario, in Bruce County - the largest beef producing region of the province. The Hereford breed was the main breed in production then and continues to be the breed of choice for Finley and Janice Cameron, of Spring Meadow Ranch. The farm was established in 1883 when Finley’s great grandparents, Ronald and Eliza Cameron, purchased 100 acres of Crown land on the Bruce Peninsula, under the name Oak Knoll Farm. Hereford cows became the main breed on the farm in 1895 along with some Shorthorns. Today, the farm consists of over 3,000 acres and is operated under the name of Spring Meadows Ranch.

Finley (the fourth generation) and his wife Janice, along with their children, run the ranch. They have four children: Ray (wife Tammy and son Cougen); Earl (wife Emily and son Lane); Bonnie (husband Terry Moser); and Karen Cameron, who lives at home. The whole family is active on the ranch and everyone comes home to help at busy times. Some of the family members have off-farm employment but the experience gained elsewhere is always utilized on the operation. “The best of times are when the entire family is working at it together,” says Finley. Finley and Earl are both convinced that the common denominator to the success and longevity of their beef enterprise is the Hereford breed going back to Finley’s great-grandfather. The cowherd numbers 300 of which 200 are straight-bred Hereford. The remaining 100 females are a HerefordRed Angus cross. “The Hereford cow will always be a major player in the Spring Meadows Program,” says Finley. The Camerons use Hereford because the breed is docile and easy-doing. They say the cows can live in the bush and they can tag the

calves while their mothers look on. The Camerons have no calving pens; just a ten acre field. Their replacement heifers are all raised at home. The Hereford bull battery is sourced from Misty Valley Farms at Maidstone, Saskatchewan with the remainder being Red Angus and Charolais. At any given time the operation has 15 to 20 bulls to service the cows. Calves are born in April and May. They are raised on their mothers without creep and weaned in October. Management incorporates a whole herd vaccination program. Calves are marketed locally at the Wiarton, Ontario stock yards where the calves bring top dollar each year. The Canadian Hereford Association is pleased to introduce and congratulate the entire Cameron family on receiving the Hereford Legacy Award.

Memorial Scroll Gung Loy Jim

Gung Loy Jim came from an unusual background to become one of British Columbia’s most successful Hereford breeders. Gung Loy Jim’s grandfather immigrated from Kowloon, Hong Kong, to San Francisco, California in 1872; then to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1907. Loy’s father moved to Little Fort, British Columbia in 1917 and built a general store and it was there that Loy was born in 1920, living there until his death in 1995. He received a grade 8 education at Little Fort School and his diploma from Kamloops Business School in 1944. He met Mary (Marie) Peleshaty, and they married shortly after in 1956. They had four children, Kam, Kee, Kym and Kyn. In the early years, the family operated Jim Man Lee Store, and farmed. A 10acre parcel of land was purchased in the early twenties and a vegetable garden was established. That land is still part of the ranch today but is now a prime cow pasture. The Jim family also had milk cows, swine, and poultry and marketed their farm products in the store. The business f lourished through the 1920’s, and then, like most businesses, struggled through the Great Depression. During the 1930’s the store gave out credit to all who needed it. In 1938, when Loy went along with his friends to join the war effort, he was declined due to his ethnicity, and his “flat feet”. This was something that troubled him for years thereafter, as Loy always wanted to be a team player. It was in 1943 when Loy purchased and registered his first purebred Hereford cattle, maintaining a small herd of 25

cows from the 1950s through the 1970s. In the early eighties, Loy’s sons became more involved in the family cattle operation and the herd was expanded to about 100 cows. Over the last 70 years, Little Fort Herefords (LFH) has been one of British Columbia’s most successful Hereford herds. LFH has produced many champions at the Kamloops Provincial Bull Sale and the Williams Lake Bull Sale. Little Fort Herefords has also sold bulls and replacement heifers directly off the ranch to other ranchers throughout British Columbia and Alberta. Gung Loy Jim absolutely loved Hereford cattle. It was his childhood dream to be a rancher and he became a wellrespected breeder and cattlemen who passionately promoted Hereford cattle at every opportunity. In 1993, he received his 50 year pin at the Provincial Bull Sale in Kamloops. He viewed this as one of the greatest recognitions of his life. Fittingly, in a very competitive class just before the award presentation, his bulls placed 1st and 2nd. Loy created an enduring Hereford legacy which his family has proudly continued on the Little Fort Hereford operation, since his death in 1995. Loy Jim predominately focused on selling bulls to ranchers. Many of his original customers still purchase Little Fort Hereford bulls today, as they have for over 40 years. Loy started to show cattle in the early 1970s, winning the Reserve Grand Champion Bull honours at the Provincial Bull sale in Kamloops in 1973. It was the first A.I.-sired bull to win this championship. Many innovations followed on the Little Fort operation, including the early adoption of embryo transplanting. At a national level, Little Fort Herefords cattle were shown at Bonanzas where one of his bulls won Reserve Champion honours. Loy and his sons also showed cattle at the Interior Provincial Exhibition (IPE) in Armstrong where they had several class winners. In 4-H, the Jim children showed several Grand Champion Females with Hereford heifers and cow/calf pairs at what was

then the largest 4-H show in Canada the Provincial Winter Fair in Kamloops. In the eighties, Little Fort Herefords began to focus on showing bulls at the Provincial Bull Sale in Kamloops as a means to promote farm sales. Their bulls won Grand Championships in Kamloops in 1984 and 1987. There were also several division, reserve, calf and group championships extending through the early nineties. Loy passed away in September 1995, but to this day, and despite cattle purchases, 75% of the herd can be traced back to cattle that Loy bred or purchased in the 1950s. Between 1995 and 2012, LFH won Grand or Reserve Grand Champion Bull at Williams Lake, 19 times. Between 1995 and 2002, the last year for the event, four Grand or Reserve Grand Champion bulls were shown at the Provincial Bull Sale in Kamloops. Kam, Kee, Kym and Kyn and their families are all actively involved in the Ranch and other agricultural businesses. They have all been involved in 4-H, and Kym and Kyn were both involved in the Junior Hereford Association, attending the first Bonanza in 1980, and several others that followed. Two of the grandchildren grew up on the ranch, and participate in all ranch activities. They have mostly been involved with the 4-H horse club. Marie continues to be actively involved in the ranch today. Loy was extremely active in his community and was a member of several organizations including Little Fort Farmers Institute, Grassy Knoll Range Association and the Barriere Fall Fair Beef Committee. He was a Yellowhead 4H Club Leader. He also was a volunteer and sponsor in various ranching related activities in the North Thompson Valley. On a provincial level, he was a P rov incial Bull Sale Commit tee Member from 1985 to 1992, a member of Thompson Valley Hereford Breeders’ Association and an active member of Kamloops Stockmen’s Association. Loy also hosted the 1986 Thompson Valley Hereford Breeders Field Day. 123

D I G E S T

Nationally, he served on the Canadian Cat t lemen’s A s s o c i at ion , m ade numerous tr ips to cattle shows, frequented the Calgary Bull Sale and toured various western Canadian and Washington State farms in search of breeding stock. The ranch is a site where international Hereford breeders have stopped on unplanned visits after seeing the Little Fort Hereford cattle which had good highway exposure north of Kamloops. Born into a second generation Chinese family that operated the local general store, Gung Loy Jim also started one of the first commercial fishing camps in the BC interior in 1938, at Taweel Lake, which ran continuously until 1977 when it was sold to US buyers. After taking over his father’s general store in 1958, the business evolved to become a retail centre with a gas bar, agency liquor store and a Subway restaurant. The store is still in operation today and will celebrate a 100th anniversary in six years. In addition, “Jim’s Food Markets” has expanded to Clearwater and Williams Lake. Throughout his life, Loy Jim was involved in many other businesses, including mining exploration, real estate, road building and logging. He was an accomplished marksman, and woodworker. In short, Loy was a very prominent entrepreneur whose life and times form an integral part of the history of the North Thompson Valley of British Colombia. He overcame many obstacles to achieve success. Loy had a relentless determination but always acted with integrity, believed in “fairness” and had a wonderful sense of humour. He always cheered for the “underdog” and improved the prospects for many people by providing financial help or mentoring. Nowhere was his universal appeal more evident than at his funeral, where those who were homeless attended alongside those who had much and all had a fond memory or favourite story to share about Loy Jim. It is with great honour that the Canadian Hereford Association inducts Gung Loy Jim into its Memorial Scroll.

Honour Roll Douglas (Buddy) Leachman

The Canadian Hereford Association congratulates Mr. Douglas (Buddy) Leachman, for his induction into the 2013 Honour Roll. The Big Gully operation officially began in 1968. In 1962, Buddy’s parents, Lloyd and Pam, moved to the ranch’s current location in North West Saskatchewan, about half an hour east of Lloydminster and 12 miles north of Maidstone, on Highway 21. Initially, the operation was comprised of 100 head of commercial cattle and involved grain farming. Purebred Herefords were added in 1967 and the “Big Gully Farm” was registered under the Home Act Department in 1968. The Big Gully operation was and very much continues to be a family operation breeding 160 head of horned and polled females annually. Buddy was born May 25th, 1955 in Maidstone, Saskatchewan. He attended school in Maidstone, from 1961 to 1970, completing grades 1-9. He married Frances Oddan on November 5th, 1977. Frances attended school through grade 12 in both Marshall and Maidstone. Buddy and Frances had two boys, Lance and Tyler. Lance received an Ag Diploma from Dodge City Community College, Dodge City, Kansas, USA in 2005. His B.Sc in Animal Science was completed at Kansas State University in 2007. From 2007 to 2010, Lance completed his M.Sc in Animal Breeding Genetics from Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia.

Tyler received h i s Jou r ney man Certificate as a Heavy Equipment Technician from Lakeland College, Vermilion, Alberta, in 2011. Both boys have been extremely successful in their chosen fields. The Big Gully Hereford herd has been a leader and recognized over the years at shows across North America. Buddy won Grand Champion Bull at the NILE in Billings, Montana, in 1978. He has won numerous Grand and Reserve Champion banners at Canadian Western Agribition (CWA), Stockade Roundup and the Champion Run of Bulls, also at Agribtion. In 2010, a major accomplishment was achieved when the Leachman Family won the coveted RBC Supreme Champion Bull over all breeds, at Agribition. In 2012, they won Grand Champion Horned Hereford Female honours at the World Hereford Conference as well as Nebraska Cattlemen’s Class Supreme Champion Bull. Buddy was named Breeder of the Year in 2010 by the North West Saskatchewan Hereford Zone which also nominated him to the CHA Purebred Breeder Honour Roll in 2012. “The length of time in the breed has been a struggle,” says Buddy. “It’s not an easy task to be successful.” Mentors in Buddy’s Hereford life were firstly his parents. He also recognizes G eorge Ellis ( Bear toot h Ranch) , Jonathon Fox (Justamere) and Herb Strandquist, herdsman for Justamere. Buddy worked as a fitter for Beartooth Ranch, Justamere, and Ponderosa. He also fitted for Don Johnson at the Toronto Royal, CWA, Cow-Palace in San Francisco and Denver’s National Western Stock Show (NWSS), on the Hill and in the Yards. He was one of the few to get off the train from Toronto’s Royal Winter Fair to attend the very first CWA. Buddy has travelled extensively across Canada and the United States to attend cattle shows and visit breeders in their yards, viewing their herds. He was also one of the first pioneers in Canada


C A N A D I A N

to implement an Internet Sale to sell Hereford seedstock. Buddy won a Gold Watch in 4-H Showmanship at the Lloydminster Reg iona l 4 -H Show. He judged numerous 4-H shows and summer fairs. He obtained his Class 1 license in order to haul his own cattle and grain with his semi. He admires all breeds and colours. His friendships are far reaching, from loggers, lawyers, const r uc t ion, heav y equ ipment operators and cattlemen. He says, “I’ve drank out of paper bags and I’ve drank out of fine crystal”. Buddy believes in old fashioned grazing management and not overgrazing because he says grass is a long term deposit. He learned how to use a PC later in life and is doing more business than ever before because of it and he is widening his friendships with cattle people worldwide. He has always demanded the most modern way of improving his herd utilizing AI, embryos, carcass and pregnancy ultrasound data, sexing and EPD’s. Buddy always treats youth with the utmost respect, believing the future to be in their hands. This is reflected in

his support of youth in livestock and agriculture across Canada and the USA. He continuously has calls from youth of all ages from across North America informing him of their 4-H or Junior Projects, best heifers, steers, sheep, goats, pigs or rabbits. Buddy, Frances, Lance and Tyler have all been 4-H members, mainly showing Hereford and Hereford cross cattle. Buddy was a director of the North West Saskatchewan Hereford Club for 10 to 12 years. Frances was a director and Treasurer of the Northwest Saskatchewan Hereford Ladies. Buddy also served two years as Director on the Lloydminster Exhibition and Stockade Roundup Boards. Presently, Lance is a Northwest Zone director and the Secretary/Treasurer. Buddy has participated in the Northwest Field Day since its inception. He served four years on the Saskatchewan Hereford Association’s provincial board and exhibited cattle in Lloydminster, Turtleford, Pr ince Albert, Reg ina summer fairs and both Denzil and Edam fall fairs. Buddy is a lifetime member of the CHA

H E R E F O R D

D I G E S T

since the age of 16 in 1971. Lance and Tyler were both CJHA members and Bonanza participants and now hold Young Gun memberships. Lance manages t he day to day operations of Big Gully Farms with the guidance of Buddy and Frances. When Lance is away from the farm attending cattle shows, sales or marketing the Big Gully product, Tyler is there to help look after the place. Buddy has imported bulls and females from the US as well as sold live cattle to approximately nine US States, Argentina and Inner Mongolia. He has sold semen to approximately seven US states, South Africa, Australia and Uruguay. Buddy has and continues to enjoy team roping in Saskatchewan and Alberta, ski-dooing locally, fishing the northern lakes and BC’s Queen Charlotte Islands and the mountains. Frances enjoyed horseback riding, curling, bowling, hockey and was a soccer mom. Both boys are active in quadding, ski-dooing and hockey, while Lance also enjoys the sport of soccer.

Honour Roll Kurt Gilmore

The Canadian Hereford Association congratulates Mr. Kurt W. Gilmore, for his induction into the 2013 Honour Roll. Kurt was born March 4th, 1949, in Lincoln, Nebraska to Keith and Betty Jo Gilmore. He lived on a farm in Callaway, Nebraska until 1956, when they moved to Calgary, Alberta so that his father, Keith Gilmore, could assume the management of the Canadian Hereford Digest. In 1961, Keith purchased the

Hereford Digest. Kurt completed grades one through 12 in Calgary, graduating from Ernest Manning High School in 1967. He then attended Washington State University from 1967 to 1971, where he earned a B.Sc. in Animal Science with minors in Chemistry and English. Kurt was a competitive swimmer from 1962 to 1969, swimming on Canada’s National Team in 1967. This earned him an Athletic Scholarship to Washington State University (WSU) that same year. During his time at WSU, Kurt taught Beef Performance and Showmanship for two years in 1970 and 1971. He graduated as “Outstanding Senior in Agriculture”. He was President of the WSU Lariat Club and worked in a slaughter house. Kurt was on the livestock judging team in 1970 and 1971. Upon returning to Canada, Kurt served as Field Representative for the Canadian

Hereford Digest from 1970 to 2008. It was in 1980, that Kurt purchased the national magazine from his father, Keith. Throughout his years with the Digest, Kurt announced at major shows and sales throughout Canada for more than 30 years. These events included the Calgary Bull Sale, Canadian Western Agribition sales, the Edmonton Bull Sale, the Medicine Hat Bull Sale and the Maple Creek Bull Sale, to name a few. They also include National Hereford Shows such as Agribition, Farmfair International and once at the Royal Winter Fair. Kurt assisted in the organization of tours, field days, shows, sales and junior events for 35 years, principally in Alberta and British Columbia but occasionally in Saskatchewan and other provinces. He was also a sponsor at the Canadian Junior Hereford Bonanzas across Canada for more than 30 years. 125

H E R E F O R D

D I G E S T

He served as “Family Advisor” to the Keith Gilmore Foundation from 1987 to 2009, at which time he was appointed as one of the trustees. Kurt served two years on the Planning Committee for the 1998 National Hereford Show in Edmonton at Farmfair and also on the Planning Committee for 2012 World Hereford Conference. Kurt has attended shows, sales, junior events and field days in every province in Canada except Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. On the international front, he travelled to many US states for some 30 years to assist with Hereford sales and shows, including 20 years at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. Most of these events were to promote the efforts of US buyers of Canadian Hereford genetics.

Kurt married Maxine in 2002. They have four children - Julie (Gilmore) Smith, Jeanie (Gilmore) Colling, Kevin Gilmore and Kevin Williams, as well as six grandchildren. Kurt has served as a swimming instructor for the Kiwanis Club in Calgary for two years at its summer camp. He also served two years on the Agriculture Building Design Committee for the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. The Alberta Hereford Association inducted Kurt into its Hall of Fame in 2010. Kurt was also honoured by the Alberta Cattle Breeders for Meritorious Service to the Calgary Bull Sale in 2009 and he was recognized that same year, for his long service to the Williams Lake Bull Sale. For 39 years, Kurt traveled throughout Canada promoting Hereford cattle, making hundreds of friends among the

breeders. Sales of Canadian-bred cattle also took him to many events in the U.S. and in 1991 he represented Canada and the U.S. as a guest of the South African Government which produced a pictorial and written documentary promoting the 1992 World Hereford Conference in that country. Kurt has had a long association with the Hereford Industry in North America and in many parts of the world. He is a respected cattleman and is known as one of the Hereford breeds greatest enthusiast, promoters and supporters. Following the sale of the Canadian Hereford Digest to the Canadian Hereford Association in 2009, Kurt has embarked on a new career in real estate sales.

CJHA Honour Roll Larissa Lupul Larissa is the 18-year-old daughter of Dennis and Becky Lupul of Foisy Alberta and owner of Barefoot Polled Herefords. Larissa’s love for cattle began at a very young age when her dad, who works in the oil fields, purchased a few cows as a tax write-off. This is important to understand because Larissa did not grow up on a big cattle farm. In fact, her parents know very little about cattle and what they do know, she has taught them! As a young child, Larissa often asked to go over to Dennis & Andrea Babiuk’s farm to see the calves and help feed. When she was seven, Larissa’s parents bought her first heifer – “Nancy” - from the Babiuks, at their production sale. The following summer, Larissa brought “Nancy” to the Alberta Junior Hereford Show in Bashaw. This is where she caught the “show fever” which many cattle enthusiasts get after their first cattle show. From then on, Larissa was hooked! Her favourite show, to-date, was Bonanza 2011 Bridging Friendships - in Saskatoon, where she exhibited six head, five of which were bred and owned by Larissa. She had many successes at that show, along with owning and exhibiting the Champion Semen Donation Animal. The best part of winning that award,

126

according to Larissa, was seeing Jim and Lori Duke of Square-D Polled Herefords, who donated the Hereford semen to Larissa, “go absolutely crazy” when her cow was slapped. Larissa was also named the Premier Breeder at Bonanza 2011, which gives her great pride, as it was recognition for the work she had done so far developing her own herd. Larissa’s most recent winnings in the ring with her Herefords were winning two Reserve Champion division banners at the World Hereford Conference show and having the high seller at the National Hereford Sale at the 2012 Canadian Western Agribition. Larissa retains ¼ interest the bull BARE MR YOU TUBE 4Y and continues to market him. She is proud to say his semen is being marketed in Europe. This fall, Larissa is off to Olds College to take Agricultural Management with intentions of majoring in Production. Fellow Hereford breeders, Travis and Becky Page from Redline Livestock have allowed Larissa to move her cattle to their place while she goes to college so she can keep her herd and have them close by. Larissa has intentions of expanding and continues to improve herd quality along with starting a small club calf operation as well. Even though she may play in the waters of different breeds, her heart will always be with the Herefords, she says. Larissa’s dedication to the breed, young people, and the CJHA is very much appreciated. Congratulations, Larissa!

Hereford Farewells Robert Hugh (Bob) Thomson 1926 – November 30, 2012 It is with regret that the CHA announces the passing of Robert Hugh “Bob” Thomson, who passed away at his home November 20th, 2012. Bob lived his entire life on the Thomson farm at Miami, Manitoba. Always quiet-spoken, he had two main passions in his life - the cattle business and sports. Bob worked diligently to develop a prize-winning polled Hereford herd. He spent many years playing baseball throughout Manitoba and was inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999. Bob also played organized hockey for more than 40 years, where he won numerous awards and was known for his gentlemanly play. Bob was predeceased by his father, John Ray Thomson, his mother Annie Stirling Thomson, his brother Dr. Jack Thomson (Myrtle) and his brother Bruce. He is survived by his brother Peter (Pat) and nephews, Rae (Judy), Craig (Heather), Peter (Celia) and Robert and their families.

Floyd Wasden May 15, 1937 – December 25, 2012 It is with regret that the CHA announces the passing of Floyd Wasden, born to Albert and Irene Wasden on May 15, 1937 on the train enroute to Prince Albert between the Villages of Shell Lake and Hawkeye. Floyd passed away December 25th, 2012. Farming was his passion. He enjoyed his Hereford cattle for their calm demeanor and doing ability. He took pride in quality, both in cattle and grain. As Floyd’s sons began taking over the family farm, Floyd would take a step back and let them do the work but it was common to see him drive into the field just to see what was going on. He leaves to cherish his memories, his wife Roberta (married August 2, 1960) children Denise (Earl) Henderson, and their children Kelan ( Becky Sieme) Henderson, Riley ( Jenna Rathgeber) Henderson; Claude (Adele) Wasden, and their children Farin Mellisa and Megan Wasden; Ian (Sue Kahl) Wasden and their children Dalton and Reese Wasden, Ashley and Shania Bourassa. His sister Doreen Wasyliw, his mother-in-law Rose Smith, a special aunt Auralia Wasden, and a special cousin Bonnie Isaacson, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Albert and Irene Wasden, his father-in-law Robert (Bob) Smith, his special uncles Roy Wasden and Walter (Bill) Isaacson.

Rolf Birchler 1933 – February 13, 2013 It is with regret that the CHA announces the passing of Rolf Birchler at the age of 80. Rolf was the President of the CHA in 2001/2002 and was an active breeder in Ste-Edwidge, Quebec, with his wife Heifi Leutenegger. A relatively small polled hereford breeder, Rolf was overwhelmed with joy at being accepted into the world of the cowboy on his first visit to the CHA office. There, he met Hereford breeder Hans Ulrich, only to find they had grown up just 25 km apart in Switzerland. A regular on the show circuit , Rolf was first elected to the Hereford board in 1996 and held the position of marketing chair until being elected vice-president in 2000. He had been a director of the Quebec Hereford Association since 1992 and was a director of the Eastern Township Hereford Club where he served as the CHA president in 1992. Rolf’s involvement with Hereford and Hereford people brought a lot of joy to his life. He supported them with enthusiasm. He will be dearly missed by family, friends and fellow breeders who enjoyed his company.

Ronald Arthur Cross December 7, 1929 – March 20, 2013 It is with regret that the CHA announces the passing of Ronald Arthur Cross. Surrounded by his loving family, Ron passed away peacefully March 20th, 2013. Ron loved his family, friends, farm and community. He always offered a helping hand when needed. He was a lifetime member of the Millarville Racing and Agriculture Society, the Alberta Hereford Association and the Canadian Road Builders Association. He is survived by Allene, his wife of 61 years; his children, Terry (Wally), Cathy (Dave), Gary and Tracy; his grandchildren, Craig (Jill), Serena (Daniel), David (Tammy), Sean, Chelsey (Matt), Sydney (Nick), Ronnie, and Peter; his great- grandchildren, Pol, Reece, Ryder, Caitlyn, Ethan, Harper, Karlin, Abigail, Liam, and Frank; his sister, Shirley and brother Ralph as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Ernest (Ernie) Pippy 1935-April 25, 2013 It is with regret that the CHA announces the passing of Ernest “Ernie” Pippy, at the age of 78. Ernie passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Stratford, on Thursday, April 25th, 2013. Ernie was the beloved husband of Hazel (nee Myers) Pippy, and dear father of Dail Smith (Wayne), Gail Farquhar (Robert), Lorna Robertson (Ralph), Kim Pippy, and Tracey Thibeau (Glenn). He is survived by nine grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and his sister Ruby Peters. Ernie and his wife Hazel ran the very successful Kimbrook Farm herd since 1983. Hereford cattle were Ernie’s second love and showing them became an obsession for him over years. The herd was never huge with usually no more than 10 to 15 cows at any given time. Ernie received many awards and championships at shows in the Maritime over the years, which resulted in five Gold Trophy Dams and several Silver Trophy Female awards. His greatest accomplishment in his Hereford career was producing the record high-selling Hereford bull at the Maritime Bull Test Station in 2002. Ernie served on the Maritime Hereford Association board for years and was President a few times over the years. He will be greatly missed in the Maritime Hereford industry, not only for his cattle but also for his enthusiasm for the breed, his camaraderie and his jokester personality with fellow breeders and juniors.

The Faces of the Cattle Business The cattle business today has evolved into several distinct segments. Each draws certain people whose personality, skill and savvy make them best suited to that segment. We’ll start with the purebred breeders, the architects who design prototypes for the industry. They are academic minded. They steep themselves in statistics, fiddle with and refine genetics in an effort to define subjective traits, objectively. Not unlike ancient mariners drawing and redrawing the constellations in the night sky. The next segment is the commercial cow/calf operator. They are the bedrock of the industry; the worker on the assembly line. They produce our product, beef, from scratch just as a welder builds a bumper guard, a cook bakes an apple pie and an artist paints a picture. They think in terms of generations (both human and bovine), take the good with the bad and have a loyalty to the land. You rarely hear them say “I’m just ranchin’ to make enough money to buy the car dealership downtown!” The grower, segment 3, takes calves once they’ve been weaned and keeps them until they are big enough to go to the feedlot. These grower calves come from a wide variety of sources; farms, ranches, sale barns, dairies, dog pounds, gypos, traders and team ropers! It is a hands-on, intensive, frustrating demanding job. It’s equivalent to teaching Kindergarten through 3rd grade, lots of babysitting. Economically, it’s like buying used cars and trying to make them re-saleable! Segment 4 is the Feedlot. This is where we take a new car off the show room floor and turn it into a NASCAR Sprint contender! Today average daily gain, conversion, genetics, fixed expenses, health problems, purchase price, feed price and sale date are predictable within reason. However, predicting the market, the sale price 120 days later is like rolling the dice! Those who call themselves cattle feeders could easily be wild-catters in the oil business, prospectors, explorers, crap shooters, test pilots, magicians’ assistants, circus acrobats, punt returners or Wall Street Speculators. They thrive on risk. If you guaranteed them a 20% profit on a truckload of steers, they’d hold out for 25! And the final segment in our cattle business is the packinghouse where live cattle are turned into beef. Very little is known about this curious group of men. They sequester themselves in ritualistic confines, not unlike the Dalai Lama or Idi Amin where they chant and mutter phrases like “yellow sheet,” “on the rail,” “triple grande no foam latte.” To all of us who have provided every animal that enters into their castle-like facility, they are as mysterious as the Vatican. We are only aware of their presence when we see a white puff of smoke and the phone rings…offering less!
