Newsworthy and notable stories from the Canadian Hereford industry

Thompson Valley Hereford Breeders Princess 2012 Katie Hudson, Armstrong, BC Katie is 16 years old and has been a Beef 4-H member for 9 years. Best wishes to Katie on her year as the Thompson Valley Hereford Breeders Princess. •

Oulton’s Win 2011 Environment Award Congratulations goes to the Oulton family for winning the 2011 environment award. W.G. Oulton & Sons Ltd., a mixed farm which includes purebred Herefords as well as a provincially licensed abattoir in Windsor, N.S. The award was presented by the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Canada and the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture (NSFA). A $2,000 credit toward a farm development program came with the award as well as a painting of the farm. The Oulton’s have worked with the Department of Agriculture and Environment to develop a compost pilot project composting farm waste and offal generated from the abattoir. Also, they have worked with the Department of Natural Resources developing an Agricultural Biodiversity Conservation Plan and the Canadian Wildlife Service, participating in a wild duck banding program. •

Congratulations to our very own Abbotsford Sports Hall of Famers! Linda and Daryl Kirton of 3-D-L Polled Herefords were inducted into the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame on April 28, honouring more than three decades of contributions on the curling scene. They have worked quietly in the background as high-level curling officials for more than three decades. Read the full article online here: www. abbynews.com/sports/146114925.html •

Please see page 138 for an update on our cover contest. We’ve moved it to October for this year! Show Result Corrections from the January 2012 Performance Edition of The Digest can be found in the index on page 145.

Notice to members of the British Columbia Hereford Association

Notice to the Membership Please note that the Registry and DNA departments of the Canadian Hereford Association currently have a minimum 6 week turn around time. This is due to the time dedicated to a successful World Hereford Conference. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to decrease this turn around time. •

Michele Brewster, of Bowden, Alberta painted portraits of Polled and Horned Hereford Bulls for the first World Hereford Conference hosted in Canada in 1976. These portraits were on display during the WHC in 1976 at the Alberta Hereford Association Test Centre in Innisfail, AB. Michele said, “the group of breeders that submitted their photos were extremely professional and good to work with, it was a lot of fun”. Michele returned for the WHC in July of this year. She is pictured here in the grandstand watching the Rancher Day Show.•

The Canadian Hereford Association AGM, which normally takes place in July, has been postponed due to World Hereford Conference events, to November, during Canadian Western Agribiton. The AGM will be on November 22, 2012. Location and time will be announced in the October issue. •

TheAmericanHerefordAssociation has moved to SNP technology for DNA testing. Therefore, any sires* or donor dams imported into Canada (that weren’t already done as of June 2012) must be re-tested through the CHA using microsatellites which is currently accepted by the International Society of Animal Genetics (ISAG). The CHA board has not elected to move to SNP technology at this time. *Remember that AI sires must also have DNA on both parents. •

CHA Mailing Lists The Canadian Hereford Association provides a list of annual members to the membership at a cost of $25. For more information or to order a list, please contact the office. Please note, the commercial mailing list is not given out or sold. It is for exclusive use by the CHA to distribute the October and January issues of the Canadian Hereford Digest. •

Cowboy Boots For Leif Hartveit Courtesy of Skelton Cattle Co.

Skelton Cattle Co., had a draw for a pair of Canadian cowboy boots at the WHC to encourage engagement with the attendees. Our winner was Leif Hartveit from Norway. Pictured left to right are Edie Regier, Wayne Skelton, Leif Hartveit, Annett Hartveit. •

Correction: The World Hereford Conference Commemorative Edition of The Canadian Hereford Digest featured an article in the post-conference tour section, profiling the Simmie Hutterite Colony, which is deserving of a retraction. The article erroneously states that the “Hutterites have traditionally tended to buy machinery on a wholesale rather than localized basis and to claim tax exemptions as a religious organization...” It has been brought to our attention that the Hutterite Colonies of Saskatchewan are, in fact, tax paying members of their communities and that they do purchase machinery locally. We regret any misunderstanding which this erroneously sourced information causes and offer our sincerest apologies to the Hutterite colonies of Saskatchewan. •

xWell Done, Canadian Hereford Breeders! You did yourselves proud at the World Hereford

Conference 2012! From the pre and post-conference tour field day stops to the Junior, Open and Rancher Day shows at Olds, our breeders displayed some of the best Hereford cattle our country has to offer! WHC 2012 was an event of a lifetime for organizers, participants and spectators alike. It was tremendous to see our facilities, cattle, exhibitors and visitors all come together to make such an outstanding event! Thanks to each and every volunteer on all the committees and the tireless work of the CHA staff to make this event possible. A huge thank you to the sponsors of WHC 2012. Your financial support enabled Canadian Herefords to be showcased to the world. Our theme for the WHC 2012 was “Come Celebrate the New Hereford”. This theme resonated strongly with both our visitors from around the world and from Canada. Our spectators recognized the determined effort our breeders have made to improve Herefords over the past years. It was great to involve our rancher

A consistent theme throughout the country reports and technical conference is that Herefords strengths are in feed efficiency, docility, purity, adaptability to different environments, fleshing ability and eating quality. customers in WHC 2012. They had many positive comments about the excellent quality Hereford cattle, the judging from horseback and being part of the World Hereford fraternity. The conference meetings in Calgary were very upbeat. The country reports from around the world repeatedly expressed an increase in Hereford registrations, sales and demand. It was reported that drought conditions have been holding back herd expansions in some countries but once moisture conditions improve, we can expect to see excellent demand for good Hereford breeding stock. A consistent theme throughout the country reports and technical conference is that Herefords strengths are in feed efficiency, docility, purity, adaptability to different environments, fleshing ability and eating quality. We must maintain and build on these strengths, while looking to improve in other areas. As our schedules get back to ‘normal’ after WHC 2012, we Canadian Hereford breeders must not be satisfied to rest on our laurels. We must continue our dedication to improving the breed and be ready with the best Hereford cattle for sale when our new friends and visitors return to buy. Let’s build on the enthusiasm from WHC 2012 and have a tremendous fall sale season!

Bravo éleveurs Hereford canadiens! Nous sommes tous fiers de vous pour votre dévouement lors de la Conférence Mondiale Hereford 2012 ! A partir du moment où la tournée « pré » conférence a débuté, jusqu’aux concours qui ont eu lieu à Olds, en passant par les visites de fermes, chaque aspect du programme a mis en vedette une qualité dépareillée de bovins Hereford canadiens. CMH 2012 est une expérience de vie pour les organisateurs, les participants et les spectateurs. C’était formidable de voir nos installations, les bovins, les exposants et les visiteurs, tous à l’unisson pour en faire un événement exceptionnel ! Pour avoir rendue possible la conférence 2012, merci à chaque bénévole pour le travail inlassable au travers les divers comités, merci à tout le personnel de l’association, et grand merci aux commanditaires, votre soutien financier a permis aux Herefords canadiens d’être présentés au monde entier. Notre thème pour la Conférence était « Venez célébrer la nouvelle Hereford ». Ce thème a retenu fortement l’attention des visiteurs de partout dans le monde et des éleveurs d’ici. Les spectateurs ont reconnu l’effort déterminé que nos éleveurs ont déployés pour améliorer les Herefords au cours des dernières années.

Notons que tout au long de la Conférence technique ainsi que dans les rapports de chaque pays on reconnaît que les points forts des Herefords sont l’efficacité alimentaire, la docilité, la pureté, l’adaptation aux différents environnements, la facilité d’engraissement et la qualité de viande. C’était génial d’associer nos clients commerciaux avec le programme de la conférence. Il y eu beaucoup de commentaires positifs sur la qualité des bovins Hereford et le jugement à dos de cheval. Les rencontres techniques de la Conférence, qui ont eu lieu à Calgary, ont été très bien appréciées. Les rapports de chaque pays ont exprimé à maintes reprises une augmentation des enregistrements Hereford, des ventes et une demande à la hausse. Il a été signalé que des conditions de sécheresse sont la raison pour le manque d’expansion des troupeaux dans certains pays, mais une fois que les conditions seront plus favorables, nous pouvons nous attendre à une excellente demande pour les reproducteurs Hereford. Notons que tout au long de la Conférence technique ainsi que dans les rapports de chaque pays on reconnaît que les points forts des Herefords sont l’efficacité alimentaire, la docilité, la pureté, l’adaptation aux différents environnements, la facilité d’engraissement et la qualité de viande. Nous devons maintenir et miser sur ces forces, tout en cherchant à s’améliorer dans d’autres domaines. Maintenant que la vie est redevenue à peu près normale, éleveurs Hereford canadiens, je vous pris de ne pas vous reposer sur nos lauriers. Nous devons poursuivre notre engagement d’amélioration de la race et être prêts à offrir les meilleurs bovins Hereford lorsque nos nouveaux amis et nos visiteurs reviendront acheter leur génétique au Canada. Continuons notre chemin vers la saison des ventes d’automne, comptant sur l’enthousiasme que la Conférence Mondiale Hereford 2012 a mise en nous.

hereford horizons

By Brad Dubeau

The spring of 2012 will be one to remember. Hereford bulls were in high demand with sale averages up significantly, when compared to previous years. Hereford breeders were saying that prices may have been as good as they have ever seen. The crowds at production and consignment sales consisted of traditional Hereford customers as well as new faces. Those new faces were commercial customers that were choosing to introduce Hereford bulls back into their programs. I am told, time and time again,

with pride. I personally received many positive comments about the event, from locals and visitors alike. Attendance numbers alone were impressive but of special note is the number of out-of-breed people and commercial producers who attended the shows. The cattle displayed were great marketing representatives for our breed. Thanks Gloria, Louise and Eric! Your help was truly appreciated with all of the saloon set up and decorations. Thanks to Tami, Tracy, Buck and Denise from the Olds

“Fifty per cent Hereford” is the new trend. how the Hereford breed has changed for the better and that this is what continues to drive the breed’s surge in popularity. This feedback is the result of the dedicated and hardworking Hereford breeders across this country, who should be congratulated for the quality they are producing. That being said, I encourage breeders to be mindful of the temptation to hold more bulls to fill this growing demand. I urge all of you to retain only the best breeding bulls – ones that you would be proud to run with your own cows; or ones that you are proud to say that you raised. Doing so should keep our customers hungry for Herefords for a lifetime. As the demand for “Hereford” grows, breeders’ programs will also grow, along with the number of cattle on offer. Putting your best foot forward will keep customers coming back and will encourage new buyers. Hereford females continue to be in high demand, as they were last fall. We expect seedstock and commercial bred heifer sales to be strong, based on this demand. Temperament continues to be one of the Hereford breed’s most desirable traits, along with hair, bone, adaptability, feed efficiency and rib shape, to name a few. This is a good time for Hereford breeders to get out and market their product. Commercial cattlemen with crossbred herds are researching how Hereford genetics can play a role in their programs. Market-share is increasing for Hereford bulls, which are being crossed with great success on Angus, Simmental and Charolais cowherds across the country. “Fifty per cent Hereford” is the new trend. Both white-faced crossbreds and straight-bred Hereford calves continue to gain momentum at the auction markets, while straight-bred Hereford operations are capitalizing on their females. We can look back at the 16th World Hereford Conference 24

Ag Society for all your help with the Saloon setup and operations. And to all those who pitched in when help was needed – you know who you are! – Your help was greatly appreciated. It is the cooperation of so many people that made this event as great as it was! Thank you! See ya down the road!!

Chad. It’s an accreditation system or a stamp of approval for those who make the effort to submit accurate performance records. The Hereford A ll-Star Breeder Program will be based on a scoring system as follows: 3-Star Breeder – reports three weights: BW, WW and YW

This is an incentive program designed by the CHA board of directors to recognize active Total Herd Evaluation (THE) members in good standing – those who submit all weights and data for a specific trait, as well as calving ease reports, on registered animals.

4-Star Breeder – reports three weights: BW, WW and YW, plus one additional trait

This August marks the initiation of the Canadian Hereford A ssociat ion’s (CHA’s) Hereford All-Star Breeder program. This is an incent ive prog ram designed by the CHA board of directors to recognize active Total Herd Evaluation (THE) members in good standing – those who submit all weights and data for a specific trait, as well as calving ease reports, on registered animals. Collection of this

data is important for the generation of accurate EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences) which are relied upon by the wider industry. The more data, the more accurate the database, giving more value to Hereford genetics. The program demands complete compliance reporting on all traits detailed in each of three levels outlined below. There must be a minimum submission rate of 20 per cent of ultrasound data on the calf crop being reported, if the breeder uses ultrasound as one of the reported traits. C o mp l i a nt b r e e d e r s w i l l b e 30

Improvement (HBI) committee. But it is based on criteria deemed most important to Canadian breeders. The AHA’s program was established in 2005 to recog nize breeders participating in the Association’s Whole Herd TPR. The CHA’s All-Star program was announced this August. June 1st, 2013 is the deadline for compliance reports with the PACE deadline. The August 2013 issue of the Digest will feature a list of All-Star breeders. “It’s a recognition program for breeders who report the data that everyone needs and uses,” says

5-Star Breeder – reports three weights: BW, WW and YW, plus two additional traits.

Additional traits can include scrotal circumference, cow weights at weaning and ultrasound data. Compliance Reports issued to THE members will be available online in the coming weeks, to allow users to run these reports any time to ensure that they are compliant. Compliance Reports are sent out whenever a member sends in performance data with something


C A N A D I A N

missing, which gives them the opportunity to complete the data and return it to the CHA, in order to qualify. Those who do not receive a Compliance Report, in theory, should qualify for the All-Star Program. If there is a reason that THE members cannot produce a weight for a given individual animal, providing the CHA with a “reason” why the data is missing is often sufficient, according to Val Wells, who oversees the performance programs of the CHA.

“We can code t he system to accommodate unavailable information such as birthweights (i.e. born in pasture unobserved), or an escapee at weaning roundup,” says Val. “So there is no reason to fudge data. Ultimately the real ‘reward’ is that of more accurate performance reporting and EPDs.” This is a new program for the CHA, so modifications to the program should be expected as it is unrolled. In the meantime, breeders are reminded

H E R E F O R D

D I G E S T

that COMPLETENESS of reports should not be overlooked. Forgetting to report data such as Calving Ease can take breeders off the list where eligibility for the All-Star Program is concerned. Three to five-star status, on the other hand, demonstrates a herd’s emphasis on herd performance and recognizes those herds which go the extra mile.

CHA’s Total Herd Evaluation (THE) The Total Herd Evaluation (THE) program is a complete herd reporting system to evaluate performance traits. Breeders who participate in the THE provide performance records such as adjusted weights, indexes and ranks, as well as EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences) which are reported twice annually. THE is a cow-based program in which breeders can choose to participate at different levels. The one requirement is that if any weight (i.e. birthweight) is reported, then that weight must be reported on all calves; not just those that are registered. All traits (birthweight, weaning weight and yearling weight) are not mandatory. Data is generated from a comparison of animal performance within a similar managed environment, which can then be compared across herds. To enroll, producers should simply call the CHA office. For those enrolled, herd inventories listing owned cows are created once annually in January. After inventories are updated and submitted to the office, weaning worksheets are returned to the member, on which weaning weights can be recorded. After weaning data are returned to the CHA office, weaning performance reports are returned to the breeder, along with yearling worksheets. THE participants have access to the online system, which simplifies the whole reporting process. Instructions come with the password. The cost of being a THE member is $5 per cow annually.

Canada and the World

Highlights from the 16th World Hereford Conference By Catherine A. Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

Our Hereford story has been told. And many friendships and alliances gained. Calgary and Canada hosted Hereford enthusiasts from around the world from July 8th to the 24th in what is unanimously declared to be an event of resounding success. Pre and post-conference tours were sold-out well in advance of the conference starting. Over 160 people toured ranches in British Columbia and visited Banff before coming to Calgary for the main conference events. Following the conference, another 72 people continued across the country to visit breeders and see Canadian attractions across Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. About 300 people were registered for the full conference, including 42 juniors from 13 countries across the world, who joined Canadian Junior Hereford Association members in their Junior Bonanza competitions in conformation, showmanship and photography. This was the first World Hereford Conference ever to host a junior show. And better yet, the stands were packed for the Hereford cattle shows at Olds, Alberta. Over 700 spectators watched the Junior Bonanza show in person, while the World Hereford Conference National Hereford Open Show attracted nearly 1,200 guests to watch the 320 head competing. About 1,200 spectators also watched the purebred pen shows on Rancher Day – July the 18th – where cattle were judged by a panel of women and men on horseback. Countless more cattle folk across the country watched the show online. The World Hereford Conference brought together many beef cattle producers locally and many Hereford enthusiasts from abroad and the weather cooperated for the conference duration. On Friday, July 13th, World Hereford Council member representatives were given the opportunity to share Hereford news and production stories from their respective countries, giving Canadian breeders the chance to understand our similarities and differences. An underlying sense of the Hereford’s adaptability to diverse climates prevailed. A World Hereford Council (WHC) meeting, led by WHC Secretary-General Jan Wills, was also held on Friday. At that meeting, delegates discussed moving forward with a research project concerning international genetic evaluation. Two new countries – Kazahkstan and Switzerland – were welcomed into the World Hereford Council. Jose “Pepe” Bonica of Uruguay, was elected as the new WHC Secretary-General, to begin his term in 2013. Bonica is currently the President of the Uruguayan Rural Society. The World Hereford Conference is held every four years. In 2016, it will be hosted by Uruguay. Saturday, July 14th, featured the official opening events followed by a technical conference. Speakers included Robert Meijer, president of Canada Beef, who reviewed global beef industry trends; Dr. Steve Miller, director of the Centre of the Genetic Improvement of Livestock (CGIL), who talked about the science behind improving beef tenderness; Dr. Dorian Garrick, the Jay Lush Endowed Chair in Animal Breeding and Genetics, who shared his knowledge relating to genomic prediction in Hereford cattle; Dr. Dave Daley, professor of animal science at California State University’s College of Agriculture, who spoke about the value of heterosis as it relates to Herefords; Dr. Rober Weaber, assistant professor of beef breeding and genetics and cow/calf extension specialist at Kansas State University, who outlined the economics of docility in beef cattle; and finally, Dr. John Basarab, senior research scientist for Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, talked about feed efficiency in beef cattle. Stan Jacobs, cow boss at Douglas Lake Ranch, Canada’s largest commercial ranching operation, gave a refreshing common sense perspective on his experiences with Herefords, while Dr. Kee Jim, founding partner, CEO and director of Feedlot Health Management Services, described his company’s work with Hereford breeders to evaluate and measure feed efficiency within the breed. The opening ceremonies featured WHC officials such as WHC Chairman Dr. Jay Cross, Canadian Hereford Association President Randy Radau, Technical Conference Chairman Dr. Neale Church and WHC Secretary-General Jan Wills. Of special interest were speakers Laureen Harper, wife of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and Meghan Black, who gracefully represented our Canadian juniors. Laureen Harper, who grew up in the nearby Turner Valley, reminisced on her childhood days raising cattle. Her parents were bull buying customers of Bar Pipe Herefords, she said. She also recounted her four years working for the Canadian Hereford Digest, when the Herd Reference Editions were 325 pages in length. Meghan Black, who has been involved with the Junior Hereford Association since 1996, proudly described the junior association of which she is president, as being founded in 1960 and growing to be Canada’s largest junior beef cattle organization. She also thanked Jan Wills for her personal support, through the World Hereford Council, of global junior programs. What better example to our juniors, than our outstanding forum, where everyone put their best faces forward in the name of Hereford pride!

Reflections on the 16th World Hereford Conference On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to report the conclusion to a very

successful World Hereford Conference held July 8th to 23rd. The theme of the conference was ‘Come Celebrate the New Hereford’… and celebrate we did! Our goals, ahead of time, were to show the best of Canadian culture and hospitality to our guests, to learn as breeders and exchange ideas, to create opportunities for marketing Hereford genetics across Canada and around the world, and to increase the exposure of the breed within the commercial industry. When you imagine these events, years in advance, you hope that people will enjoy and learn but, from an organizers standpoint, first and foremost, you just hope that people come. I am delighted to report that over 625 people officially registered for various parts of the conference and here are the highlights: s Attendees from 21 countries s 150 registrants for the pre-tour through British Columbia and 72 people on the post-tour through Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario s Our Saturday, July 14th program was kicked off by a warm personal greeting from Mrs Laureen Harper and was attended by 445 people, including many leaders from the livestock industry s Including walk-in guests, there were over 1,200 people both at the Open Show and on Rancher Day The cattle shows were extremely popular with over 320 cattle coming from all four western Canadian provinces as well as the USA. I heard many compliments about the depth in quality of cattle on display and there were 116 exhibitors in the World Junior Bonanza show including 42 junior members from 12 countries outside of Canada. There were 88 exhibitors for the Open Show, 35 exhibitors for the Rancher Day Pen Show, as well as 11 exhibitors participating in both the Open Show and Rancher Day. The attendance and cattle entries exceeded our expectations but more impressively, the enthusiasm and excitement about the Hereford industry was huge and it continued to build throughout the conference. For me, the highlights were seeing the packed seats and smiles of appreciation from countless international visitors, be it on receiving a cowboy hat during he White Hat Ceremony, attending their first chuckwagon race, or in seeing pen show cattle judged by professional ranchers on horseback. I want to express my sincere personal thanks to the volunteers who put in hundreds of hours before and during the events. The Facilities and hospitality were outstanding and guest after guest told me how impressed they were. However, as good as the plans for an event may be and as much as you can be prepared, it only works when exhibitors and sponsors step up and seize the opportunity to market their programs. I congratulate the breeders who fully embraced the concept of a summer show, when fall and winter are our more normal times, bringing herd bulls out of the pasture and young calves. The Rancher Day concept was a big hit with observers. Seeing the uniformity of the bull pens and the conformational quality of working cows, including a few 12 year olds, helped to reinforce important messages about why Herefords make sense more than ever in today’s commercial cattle industry. For those of who were able to participate in conference events, thank you. I know that you will all have many great memories. Even if you were not there, I suspect that you will hear stories for years to come. I suspect though that the most lasting benefits will be the huge shot of enthusiasm into what was already a very positive Hereford industry in Canada. May you all enjoy the ride! Best wishes,

Jay Cross

Chairman, 16th World Hereford Conference

Hereford Short-Stories from Abroad By Catherine A. Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

PAUL SYKES

Paul Sykes, a World Hereford Conference attendee, shares his story with the Hereford Digest. Paul and Judi Sykes of Kiroonda Hereford Stud have run 300 purebred Hereford cows in Victoria, Australia, for the past 40 years. The operation is bounded by Alpine and Snowy River National Parks, wilderness areas and state forests. Paul is a second-generation cattlemen whose father ran a commercial cattle operation. Paul and Judi’s daughter Lauren and her husband Glenn are also involved in the operation. They sell 50 bulls annually through their own bull sale. Many go to into purebred herds, many of which run

JACK HENRY

Jack Henry’s first visit to Canada was in the late seventies. He came here for the Onanadaga and Autumn Alliance Hereford sales in Ontario, having first met the owners of Onanadaga, Gil and Molly Henderson, in England. Since then, Jack has become a recognized face in the Canadian Hereford fraternity at big events across Canada and he was here again for the 16th World Hereford Conference. Many of his herd bloodlines in England have Canadian influenced pedigrees.

operations in the mountains. The Kiroonda Hereford Stud ads boast “Consistent, Qualit y, Mountain Cattle.” The term “Stud” in Australia is comparable with Canada’s “herd” or “ranch” or “operation”, although they refer specifically to registered herds. There are a lot of Herefords in the Victoria area and many straight Hereford operations. Angus are also popular. In the lower country, Sykes says about 50 per cent of herds are comprised of Herefords while the rest are often Hereford crosses. The Herefords on Sykes’ operation are outside year-round. The area doesn’t experience much severe weather, he says. While winters are long, their coldest days average minus five or six degrees Celsius. The winter feeding regimen includes turnips, along with hay and silage; the latter of which is comprised of oats and grass and some cereal. His sale averages are up, says Sykes. Last year’s average was $5,000 with a sale topper of $14,000 to a stud in New South Wales.

Sykes does not take his purebreds to shows. But his family supports junior judging competitions through a veterinary science course at a local school. The Kiroonda stud also works on contract with local high schools to provide city kids with an agricultural/ l ivestock component to t hei r education, Monday through Friday. It includes activities that range from cattle branding and farm safety to rabbit trapping, rafting and rock climbing, for 50 to 120 kids at a time. Judi is a primary school teacher by profession. Established in the 1970s as a beef and sheep farm, the Kiroonda Hereford stud has expanded to include School Camp programs, adventure tourism, family cabins, lodge and motel suite accommodation, along with the Hereford bull stud and roadhouse. This is Paul’s very first Hereford conference and his first visit to Canada, though he has hosted many Canadian tourists over the years

One Canadian bull – Onondaga Pure Gold, a Star Sinclair son, won England’s Royal Hereford show and became the inter-breed champion, w inning the Burk Trophy and becoming Show Bull of the Year in 2002. Jack has visited Regina’s Canadian Western Agribition twice but this was his first time to see Alberta and British Columbia. Jack is a builder by trade. He and his wife bought land and with three boys, decided he would try his hand at commercial cattle farming. He liked the temperament of Herefords best and eventually his white-faced herd grew to about 65 registered cows. Herds of 70 to 100 cows in this area are considered to be very large. Many English farmers now have part-time jobs and run 10-plus cows, says Jack. He himself has significantly reduced his breeding herd in recent years and with the loss of his wife. Jack’s farm is located north of

England, between 20 and 30 miles from Lancastershire, which is famous for its cotton. His actual address is Yorkshire, which is famous for its sheep. It is in the Pennine Hills which are known locally as the “spine of the country”. Weather is a challenge in this area, producing a lot of rain. Cattle are housed six months of the year, from November through May. While housed in stalls or loose-housing pens with straw bedding, cattle also have access to concrete yards outdoors. Jack’s winter feeding system involves advancing electric fence wire to allow cows access to silage clumps. There is not enough good weather to make hay in Jack’s country, so silage is the most viable alternative feed option. “Hay is gold,” says Jack. The market for Herefords in this area has improved over the past few years, according to Jack. Dairy operations are expanding and many smaller

dairies are going out of business and populating their farms with beef cattle and often Herefords. The past 25 to 30 years have witnessed a lot of competition from Continental breeds but in recent years, Hereford bull sales have increased - desired for better calving ease, meat quality and temperament. Bull sales have decreased in number of late, since the English cattle herd has also drastically declined in recent

years. The famous Royal livestock show has also gone by the wayside. Nevertheless, Jack is inspired by more and more Hereford beef promotions in local grocery stores, along with producer premiums for Hereford beef. Both horned and polled cattle do well in his region and Jack, for one, hopes the breed has gotten past judging Herefords based on their horn status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A good beast is a good beast,â&#x20AC;? he says. As a cattle judge at local fairs, Jack

says what he noticed most on this visit to Canada is the preparation time to get cattle ready for shows here. He appreciated the non-aerosol fitting at the World Hereford Conference show here. He says the fitting craze lasted for only a short time in his home country of England. As long as they are clean, Jack says he prefers looking at the cattle here in their most natural state

Lennart sells about 20 bulls annually. Bull sales have shown a positive trend in terms of prices paid over the past few years. Grain prices have been high, making Herefords increasingly popular over Continental breeds in some areas. The Anderssons’ biggest challenge where beef production is concerned is the absence of a national beef grading

ALEJANDRO DE LA TOUR D’AUVERGNE

Alejandro de la Tour was a World Hereford Council delegate for Argentina at the World Hereford Conference (WHC). He was present with enthusiasm at most every WHC event, on his very first visit to Canada and his first World Hereford Conference. In Argentina, he is the General Manager of several large farming operations and a board member of the Argentina Hereford Association. He manages about 4,000 commercial cows – mostly Hereford – 1,500 dairy cows and 8,000 hectares of agricultural land. He represents the fourth generation on these familyowned operations. Alejandro’s grandfather started breeding Herefords in the 1950s. Alejandro still appreciates the breed today for its ease of fleshing and ability to finish at 300-500 kilograms. He also appreciates the breed’s docility and adaptability. He likes mid-sized animals and is very focused on EPDs for herd improvement. He also pays a lot of attention to pigmentation and colour.

system. Carcasses are paid based on weight, fat content and carcass shape. There are no steers in the system as cattle are not castrated in Sweden, by law. Therefore, only heifers are fattened and slaughtered for their butcher shop and restaurant. Bulls do not have the same fat cover that allows them to be hung for two weeks without causing excessive meat waste. Angus and Hereford-Angus cross calves are also bought for their meat sales. There are no large feedlots in Sweden. Those that do exist feed all

bulls which are brought into indoor facilities by the end of August or early September and are finished the following May. Winter housing is required for cattle in most of Sweden. Loose housing systems feature straw bedding and about 4.5 square metres per cow, which is the legislated guideline for space allotment. The Anderssons allow cows to go inside and out, with feed troughs outside. Cows calve from January to March and go out to pasture by May 1st

He prefers darker Herefords. Canadian and American Hereford sires are used extensively in Argentina. Alejandro and his family’s largest operation is located about 450 kilometres (kms) from Buenos Aires city. He travels about 20 kms of dusty road to access their farm which is about 45 kms away from the nearest town. The land is about 75 per cent agricultural plains and 25 per cent hills, with several small rivers, which provide the water supply to the area. Summers are warm but nights are cool. Even in the cooler seasons, it rarely gets below zero degrees Celsius during the daytime. Snow is nonexistant. The climate and soils are considered to be good for cropping and for good quality grass. Their key challenge in cattle production is competition with grain farmers for land resources. The breeding cattle are on native pastureland year-round and are never housed. Some sorghum and wheat silage is provided to the cows, when necessary, along with hay. Replacement heifers are run on oat grass and seeded pastures. Alejandro just started into the purebred business, with his first 19 Registered Herefords. From the commercial herd, he annually sells about 50 to 60 breeding heifers, about 1,200 fat steers, sourced from their own herd and others, and about 60 bulls. Steers are run on oat grass and seeded pastures until they are finished in his family’s small feedlot on silage, corn and sunflower expeller rations. Alejandro’s operation is typical for their region. However, he says Argentina is large and therefore has many different production systems.

Their system differs from others in terms of its diversity. Most operations focus on just one part of the business. Similar to trends throughout the Americas and abroad, there has been increased interest in Herefords commercially, which Alejandro says is evident through both demand and price. Black baldies are also becoming increasingly popular, he says. Angus, Hereford, Braford and Brangus are the dominant cattle breeds in Argentina. But there are also populations of Limousin, Charolais and Limangus. The dairy industry is also large. Wh at A leja nd r o fou nd mo s t striking about Canadian production systems is the early age we breed our heifers (under 14 months), the extensive cross-breeding programs and the relatively low use of A.I. in commercial herds, among other things. He was impressed with Canada’s junior association program. In Argentina, it is not uncommon to find herds of 1,000-plus head; the use of A.I. is common - even in large commercial herds; grazing systems for cows, heifers and steers are more intensive; and silage is more commonly used in self-consumption systems. He says that Canadians might also be surprised at the quality of Herefords in Argentina

Faces and Perspectives of a New Generation

Young Guns V By Catherine A. Brown

CODY ALLISON

Cody Allison divides his time between Herefords and work as a parts consultant at Mazer Group New Holland in Brandon, Manitoba. He makes the 25-minute drive daily, to the family farm – Leveldale Polled Herefords near Douglas. That puts him close to friend and fellow Hereford breeder, Andrew Kopeechuk of RSK Farms. It is also close to the Biglienis, well-known Hereford breeders of WLB Livestock.

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

As to keeping the family farm going, Cody says “there are lots of ways of makin’ it work.” He remains among a determined few, trading higher paying jobs in specialty trades for a lifestyle choice. “You have to know you want to do it,” he says. Cody, who grew up with one older sister, Amy, always had his eye on the farm, taking special interest in the cattle. During high school, he studied cow/calf production through Distance Education courses and he

“It was a slower year this year,” says Cody. “We only clipped about 1,000 bulls,” he says. Twelve years spent in the Carberry 4-H beef club surely prepared him for the task. Within those years, he took the role as president of his club for one term. Cody was also active for at least eight years in the Canadian Junior Hereford Association (CJHA) and acted as secretary, vice-president and president of the Manitoba Junior

Cody says that both 4-H and the CJHA helped him recognize the importance of public relations, which, he says “is a huge part of our industry.” “Work and family,” says 25-year-old Cody. “There’s nothing else,” he says, when asked about other hobbies or occupations of interest. Cody is a proud newlywed to Michelle, who takes equal interest in the cattle herd and farming. The two of them are making their way, like many of their contemporaries, in a concerted effort to keep the family farm alive. They married two years ago, in a ceremony on the farm.

took a beef nutrition course as well. Over the years, he worked locally for potato farmers and did some custom combining and some work at Alberta bull stud, ALTA Genetics. Cody and his friend Andrew also built their biceps and cattle grooming skills by custom clipping hundreds of bulls for spring bull sales, since the age of 15. They still take on that task annually, which puts them on the road every weekend before the bull sale rush.

Cody says that both 4-H and the CJHA helped him recognize the importance of public relations, which, he says “is a huge part of our industry.” It helps him with his day job as much as it does marketing his current cattle herd, he says. “A lot of the people I’ve met in the junior organizations are farming,” says Cody.

clubs dwindling. Local fairs, he says, used to be a hub of breeder and junior activity, some hosting up to 350 head. He says they are now lucky if 75 or 100 head come to town. “4-H is instrumental in keeping kids on the farm,” says Cody. Whether kids are involved in purebred or commercial cattle herds, the farming community should remain mindful of the importance of supporting and encouraging kids into these types of

Cody doesn’t get out to many summer shows but you would have seen him with his show cattle at the World Hereford Conference in Olds in July. Last year, Leveldale became a consignor to Justamere’s “Sale of the Year” and will be having an Internet sale in 2012. The herd also markets 12 to 15 bulls annually in a joint sale with Triple J Angus in Whitewood,

Cody has been a director on the Manitoba Hereford Association (MHA) board for two years, where he and his friend Andrew – now the MHA president – are bringing to the board a younger point of view. activities, he says. Cody’s wife, Michelle, has a degree in Human Resources and Business. She is working on an agricultural business degree this fall. But she also takes an interest in the creative elements of marketing the Leveldale cattle herd, being the cattle photographer and videographer of cattle they are promoting and selling. She helps Cody keep the Leveldale herd name topof-mind among other breeders and within the cattle community. The Leveldale name was established three generations before Cody, with his great grandfather, Gordon Allison, who farmed and raised Shorthorn cattle in Myrtle, Manitoba. Cody’s grandfather Ray populated the herd with Herefords and then later, with Polled Herefords. His grandfather dispersed the herd in 2000 and that’s when Cody’s father, Doug, purchased some cows and many heifer calves from Ray. The Myrtle farm, in the Assiniboine

coincide well with busy times at the farm, which allows him to get things done at home. The home farm is a quarter section (about 160 acres), while another half section is rented for hay and pasture. The only crops put up are hay crops. The cattle herd is comprised of about 50 breeding females, 40 of which are purebred Herefords. Cody once had more cattle but when he had to be away from home more often, he sold them back to his father. He has stuck with Herefords, in part, because it’s the breed with which he grew up. But Cody says he also appreciates the people in the Hereford breed community, which are like an extended family. He also sticks with Herefords because he appreciates the breed’s disposition. The Leveldale Polled Hereford exhibits might be seen at Manitoba and Saskatchewan livestock events such as Brandon’s Ag Ex – now known as the Manitoba Livestock Expo – in early

Saskatchewan. Leveldale previously consigned for 22 years to one of the longest-running bulls sales in Canada – the Lundar Bull Sale – where they exhibited and sold the Champion Bull on multiple occasions. While Leveldale’s focus has been on serving local commercial buyers, Cody has also been encouraged by some top show ring successes. At Bonanza - the Canadian National Junior Hereford show, the year it was last in Regina, Cody exhibited the Champion Senior Female and the Champion Heifer Calf of the show. They have had Champion Female and Champion Bull honours and Champion Breeder’s Herd on four occasions at the local fall fair. Several Champions and Breeder’s Herd and Premier Breeder awards were also attained at both the Manitoba Hereford Field Days and the Saskatchewan Hereford Field Days. Outside the show ring, other tools that

Aside from the inf luence of 4-H and Junior Hereford activities, Cody says his most respected mentors are his father and grandfather.

was very young, by walking around experienced people at shows and observing their practices. Cody’s dad and “grandpa” taught him a good work ethic, he says. “They always said that you get out of it what you put in.” And Cody operates with his grandpa’s advice to “keep my word and be trustworthy.” “You have no second chances to change your reputation,” says Cody, paraphrasing the words of his grandpa Ray. The financial investment needed for land and cattle herd expansion are

Cody’s biggest limiting factors but he says cattle production remains in his future plans. He knows he will need a larger land base if he ever hopes to go into cattle production full-time. When the industry is doing well, Cody appreciates the rewards that are in it. But what he appreciates most is the lifestyle it affords him, to work alongside Michelle, his dad and Faye and his grandpa Ray

AMANDA BUSHEY

The “fever” almost always starts as a kid. Some say that cattle just get into the blood. Often times it is passed down through the generations. But the fire is stoked by environment. As a child, Quebec-native, Amanda Bushey remembers calving season best. She remembers throwing temper tantrums when her dad told her she had to go into the house if it happened to be when a cow was about to calve. Amanda also loved feeding the cows. She grew up where beef cattle, like their dairy counterparts, have been tied in stanchions inside barns throughout the winter months, allowing for a lot of up-close interaction with the cows. It is a practice onto which many Quebec beef farmers still hang on. Cowherds go into barns in November and don’t come out until the grass is green again.

A m a nd a h a s h e r o w n h e r d management strategies for the future. She’d like to see the cows outside in a more natural environment where feeding can take place weekly, rather than daily, which would be easier to manage in her modern-day lifestyle. In December each year, Amanda still looks forward to the next calf crop and by May, she has her show calves picked out. By then, she says, she is “antsy to get out to shows”. Amanda, like many other juniors, has found her wings, bringing cattle out to town, to compete with and to mingle with other breeders. If seen in “town” at the local fairs, Amanda might be viewed as “miss congeniality”; always with a smile and a friendly manner. She is a great ambassador for the Hereford breed in Quebec. She is sophisticated, pretty and feminine, yet determined, with a load of endurance to spare. She might surprise you with the strength she

has, for such a slight build. But there’s a lot of power to be found inside one’s passion. On a typical show day, Amanda will be up at 3:00 a.m., doing all the show day preparations herself – feeding, washing, blow drying, clipping, fitting and showing. Her family provides huge support but Amanda takes charge of the cattle she has raised to bring to town. Over the course of the summer and fall months, Amanda will have attended fairs and beef expositions at St. Hyacinthe, Cookshire, Ayrscliffe,

Amanda says she is also challenging herself to tr y new st yles and techniques in her drawings and paintings, in order to find her comfort zone as an artist. She is trying to get her name out too. She works in acrylic, on canvas, with a palette knife. She likes her works to be textured with lots of detail. With an eye to artistic detail and the help of computer design programs like Photoshop, Amanda also takes pride in producing attractive herd promotional materials. It’s something to which previous generations did not

Amanda, now 22, has a 19-year-old sister – Megan – who has no interest in cattle. Her brother Ryan, 15, enjoys working on the farm but doesn’t share Amanda’s interest in the operation. He is more involved in sports. Amanda herself is currently a fine arts student at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville. She will graduate in 2013. She then plans to take an education program to qualify to be an art teacher at the high school level. After graduation, Amanda plans to work out of the local town of Richmond, which is closer to the farm.

Amanda says there have been virtually no other people her age, in their area, with an interest in beef production. She sees a 30 to 40-year gap between her age and the typical beef farmer in her area. R ichmond and Expo Boeuf at Victoriaville, Quebec. In the past couple of years, her confidence has increased enough to add numbers to her showstring. She now typically “drags” at least 10 head to town for shows in Quebec, which often run three to five days in length. It’s a commitment and a testament to the young lady’s dedication to her cattle breeding efforts. It’s also indicative of Amanda’s competitive nature. Amanda is also a talented artist, typically drawing and painting farm animals, country scenes and equine art. She takes photos of newborns and replicates them on canvas, as well. She has donated a lot of her art

The farm included a 100-cow commercial beef herd. Her family incorporated Herefords into the herd about nine years ago when Amanda and her sister started showing cattle as 4-H projects. Amanda was about 13 years old at the time. Her parents, Ricki and Valerie now have about 80 breeding females, of which, Amanda owns about 20 females, all descendent from her show cattle over the years. She has expanded that herd by buying cattle from as far away as

She and Matthew currently live in Sherbrooke, Quebec, about 45 minutes away from the family farm. But Amanda goes home every weekend and says she is there every day during the summer months. She and Matthew are looking at real estate close to the farm. Matthew, who was raised on a dairy farm, now works at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Experimental Farm in Lennoxville, Quebec, in dairy production. The two of them met through the 4-H program. She was showing beef cattle and he was showing sheep and dairy cattle. Amanda says there have been virtually no other people her age, in

The farm operation, which Amanda anticipates taking over some day, with her husband Matthew, is about 250 acres, with an additional 300 acres rented. About 150 acres of hay is put up for the cows annually.

their area, with an interest in beef production. She sees a 30 to 40-year gap between her age and the typical beef farmer in her area. Amanda was a member of the Richmond 4-H club, of which she was also vice-president and secretary. She also met two of her best friends in 4-H. Remaining active in Canadian Junior Hereford Association activities was also challenging for a small-town Quebec girl. She and her sister and the children of Paul and Jennifer Mastine were the only active members in the province, that Amanda knows of. Traveling the distance to Bonanza shows wasn’t always possible. But she did manage to attend the closer ones, in Quebec, Nova Scotia and Ontario. Another one of her best friends – Morgan Godfrey, of British Columbia – was also met through junior Hereford activities. A manda say s t hat her involvement in 4-H and with the CJHA gave her recognition as a breeder; a luxury which her otherwise small herd wouldn’t have afforded her. Her love of showing is engendered by the need for acknowledgement and recognition in her field. It’s an exercise that allows youngsters to test the waters and establish benchmarks which can then be challenged. A c om mon r ef r a i n f r om Amanda’s contemporaries is that 4-H and CJHA involvement helped develop marketing skills and overcome shyness when talking to the public and fellow cattle folk alike. Amanda is no different. She credits her uncle, John Mastine of Bar J M Herefords in Ontario, for his encouragement of her cattle breeding and showing activities. Amanda purchased her first Hereford from him and he then helped her evaluate her animals and gave her pointers when fitting animals for the showring. She learned to take that challenge on, on her own, and every year she is more confident at the task. Amanda was also encouraged by the advice of veteran showperson Jennifer Mastine. When she first started showing, standing at the

bottom of the class, Jennifer told her she could “only go up from here.” Amanda learned that there is always room for improvement and that type of encouragement always pushed her to be better. And better her skills, she did. A manda’s ef for t s ea r ned her

animals, by show judges, to designate the Grand Champion of a show, at local fairs. Amanda has experienced working with cattle from several breeds in her father’s commercial herd and says she appreciates Herefords most for their relatively calm temperaments, especially at calving time. She also appreciates the way they look after their calves – their maternal instincts – as well as their hair coats and volume or body capacity, typical of efficient-type cattle. Since her family’s involvement w it h pu rebred Herefords, Amanda says the quality of their original herd has been tremendously improved. It is partly a factor of their emphasis on herd performance through EPDs ( ex pected progeny differences). She says her dad uses their best Herefords to cross with their other breeds and the results are not only hybrid vigour but a lot more mass and muscle. When Amanda and Matthew ultimately take over the family farm they want to do so on a similar scale but with greater production efficiencies in mind. A cattle-centered lifestyle is also planned for their future children. Amanda is expecting in December!

Promising research tackles old breed stigmas like prolapse and cancer eye. But breeder assistance is requested.

Proactive Breeding Strategies

By Catherine A. Brown

A S S O CIAT E ED ITO R

We want problem-free cows. No doubt about it. But when we narrow gene pools to express desired character istics of a par ticular breed, we end up with a restricted germplasm and we get the bad with the good; “the nasties with the goodies,” as cattle geneticist Dr. Jonathan Beever says. The American Hereford Association recently named a “Top10” list of simple abnormalities or conditions that it thinks is limiting the sale of Hereford cattle, justifiably or not. Two conditions on that list – prolapsing and cancer eye - may have as much to do with perception as they do with reality. “It’s partly a generational issue,” says

The Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) encourages all breeders to participate, by submitting hair or blood samples, from cows with vag inal prolapses. (See details in sidebar.) No pedig rees are involved. Resulting data will not be published. And submissions will remain confidential. It is hoped that producers will come on board to help eradicate one of the Hereford breed’s stigmas. The more samples received, the easier it will be for researchers to identify the necessary genetic links. Dr. Doug Mann, a veterinarian and Hereford breeder of Phantom Creek Livestock in Saskatchewan, says the prolapsing issue comes up regularly in his practice but not always with Herefords. He says that he treats

Australia has identified cancer eye and prolapse as important traits to identify genetically in its Hereford population as well. It wants to “clean house”, you might say, according to Beever. While not ent irely genet ically heritable, Beever says it is clear to him and his colleagues that these conditions have some degree of heritability. Even so, it is still not scientifically proven that selection pressure on these two phenotypes or conditions is making any difference. He and his colleagues are addressing the issue to determine whether or not it is making a difference. But lets be clear what we’re talking about. A prolapse is defined as “the falling

Dr. Beever himself is conducting research, collecting samples from American and Canadian Hereford cows that have experienced vaginal prolapsing, to determine genetic markers for such conditions. Dr. Beever, who is also a professor of animal science at the University of Illinois, and a Hereford breeder himself. Though prog ress has been made to reduce incidence of both conditions in the breed, it is memories of the past that keep the worst incidents alive. Nevertheless, the problems undeniably exist on some level and the American and Canadian Hereford Associations are dealing with them head-on. Dr. Beever himself is conducting research, collecting samples from American and Canadian Hereford cows that have experienced vaginal prolapsing, to determine genetic markers for such conditions.

vaginal prolapses that occur in all breeds of cattle and recommends to owners that the female being treated be culled, along with all of her daughters. “It’s not a huge issue anymore in the Hereford breed,” he says, though he suggests that some older cattlemen still know the sires that can be identified with this problem. Mann himself cannot think of any current sires that have that reputation. While admitting that no breed is perfect, Dr. Beever says that as a geneticist and a Hereford breeder, he will do everything he can to help in this case because he says it is an issue that erodes at the breed’s success. It is a universal problem. Hereford

down or slipping of a body part from its usual position,” according to popular definition. Vaginal or cervical prolapses are two types that occur in beef cows.

Uterine Prolapse

As described by TheCattleSite online, a complete uterine prolapse is most common at calving. This is when the uterus is completely expelled out behind the cow and can hang down to the hocks when standing. This condition can be life-threatening for the cow. There is a risk of infection and profuse blood loss and medical attention is required immediately. Uterine prolapses tend to be caused by environmental factors, according


C A N A D I A N

to Beever and Mann. And they often result in difficult rebreeding and subsequent calving problems. They are most often seen with older cows and are sometimes caused by difficult calvings (and high bir thweight calves) from excessive straining or too much pressure applied when pulling a

five to six months pregnant showing a vaginal bulge have at least a 70 per cent correlation to vaginal prolapse. For purposes of research, Beever and his colleagues are collecting samples from younger cows – aged two to seven years - with vaginal prolapses, which are also one to four months prepartum. Research has progressed further with

D I G E S T

no equivalent comparisons for the Canadian Hereford herd. Research has proven, however, that pigmentation is not a prevention factor for cancer eye. One of the challenges where breed improvement in relation to prolapse is concerned, is that the average age of cows in purebred herds is lower than in commercial herds, according to Beever. That being the case,

The Canadian Hereford Association encourages all breeders to participate, by submitting hair or blood samples, from cows with vaginal prolapses. calf. Poor uterine tone or nutritionrelated problems can also increase uterine prolapses. A loose uterine attachment, on the other hand is believed to possibly be heritable. There may also be some predisposing factor to uterine prolapse if a cow already has a vaginal prolapse, but this relationship is not very clear, according to Beever.

Vaginal Prolapse

A vaginal prolapse is a protrusion of the vagina outside of the body cavity, putting the vagina at a high risk for infection. Vaginal prolapses tend to have a genetic cause. Fat or overconditioned cows are more prone to vaginal prolapses. “Vaginal prolapses that occur in older cows, we believe, may, on the other hand, have more inf luence from environment,” says Beever. Veterinarians recommend culling cows that have experienced vaginal pr ol ap s e. Sub s e quent v ag i n a prolapses are typically worse than the first. Beever says that cows that are

cancer eye, in terms of the discovery that two or three genes have been found to have a big effect on this condition. Genetic research relating to prolapse is more challenging, however, due in part to definitions of prolapses. There is hope, according to Beever but we must be more stringent with our definitions and collection samples, he says. Beever just needs breeders to be motivated to make those submissions. While he believes the overall prevalence of prolapses in Hereford cattle has declined, Beever also says it depends on what segment of the breed you are in. Prolapses were common in a few hor ned lines many years ago, according to research on t he U.S. herd, but now they are more prevalent in polled females – again, according to research on U.S. Hereford populations. Cancer eye, on the other hand, tends to be more prevalent in horned cattle in the U.S. herd. There are

Sample Submission

To help support genetic research relating to vaginal prolapse or cancer eye, please contact Jeff Hyatt, breed development coordinator with the Canadian Hereford Association (CHA): jeff@hereford.ca (phone: 403-275-2662 OR toll free: 1-888-836-7242) Jeff will forward documents (including a validated import permit from Canada to the U.S.) to interested producers, along with instructions about where to submit hair and/ or blood samples. The more samples received, the better. While hair samples can now be used with improved technology, and while they are preferred over no sample at all, blood samples are best, because they can be used more than once. Samples from cows with cancer eye will also be accepted.

combined with the fact that prolapses tend to manifest in older animals (6.5 to 7.5 years is the primary age of onset), makes it difficult to weed the susceptible ones out of the population, let alone identify them. This is also the reason why prolapses are more common in commercial herds. Purebred breeders can influence that trend by being vigilant in their own herds but also by participating in this new promising research.

KVaginal Prolapse IUterine Prolapse

The documentation will ask for two photos of the affected cow, to help researchers identify the nature of the condition. Information such as the cow’s age, the identified condition, her breed (purebred Hereford or Hereford-cross) and when the prolapse occurred, along with the sample, is requested. Samples most in demand are those from younger cows – aged two to seven years - with vaginal prolapses, which are also one to four months prepartum. Breeders are again reminded that no pedigrees are involved. Nor will resulting data be published. And submissions will remain confidential. More information may also be requested from Dr. Jon Beever, at jbeever@illinoisu.edu.

Bred here at XTC, 23U first sold into the neighbors top commercial herd, where he proved himself as an easy calving (used on heifers for 3 seasons) performance bull. As he matured into a thick muscular sire we knew we had to use his influence in our purebred herd. His good uddered 126L dam is 10 years old and still a top producer. The 9P sire raised many good sons, including Fentons 43T Emperor bull, and we think 23U is one of the best.

This good Klein bull continues to add extra thickness and doing ability to all his progeny. We have a great set of thick made, muscular sons selling in our Amigos 14 sale this fall. If you value the easy doing, feed efficient kind, come have a look!

Building on Efficiencies

Government funding comes through for major Hereford Feed Efficiency Research By Catherine A. Brown

AASSSSOOCIAT CIATEE ED EDITO ITORR

Improve on one of the breedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest strengths? You betâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ya! In case Herefords didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already have the feed efficiency trait covered, the Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) is ensuring that future generations can not only more consistently deliver that trait but also improve on it. Beginning this fall, and over the next three years, the Canadian Hereford Association will assist researchers in MEASURING  BULLS FOR RESIDUAL FEED EFlCIENCY 2&)  Producers were encouraged to loan a total of 300 Hereford bull calves (6-12 months of age; both horned and polled) to satisfy research requirements for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial and already, this quota has been met. However, Brad Dubeau, CHA communications manager, reminds breeders that they may still submit their names too waiting list for future selection, if interested. This research project is a collaboration with Olds College, the University of Alberta, Livestock Gentec and CattleLand Feedyards to produce an EPD (expected progeny difference) for feed efficiency. The goal is to produce a Residual Feed Intake (RFI) EPD, to be specific. The CHA is working with Dr. John Basarab, senior research scientist with Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and adjunct professor at the University of Alberta. Basarab is a world renowned researcher in the field of feed efficiency. Bulls will be fed in a GrowSafe system which allows individual animal feed intake to be measured. The Government of Canada announced funding for this project in May of this year. Olds College was approved for THIS   PROJECT UNDER THE FUNDING CATEGORY OF hNEW livestock projectâ&#x20AC;? for the new College-University Idea to Innovation program. The title of this project is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Use of Genomic Tools to Improve Feed Efficiency in Purebred Hereford Cattleâ&#x20AC;?. The Natural Sciences and Engineering Council (NSERC) will be providing $630,000 of the funding, while the CHA will make up the remaining $310,000 over the course of three years, partially through contributions from producers. The cost of participating in the trial for producers is $250 per head, plus transportation expenses. For this price, producers are provided with: s Feeding, yardage and health management for 104 days ($270 value) s Carcass ultrasound data ($13 each) s DNA Genotyping of each animal ($80 value) s Residual Feed intake rating of Feed Efficiency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an EPD once the trial concludes â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of this project is to reduce producer and

74

feedlot costs of production by providing an economical and straightforward method to select for more feed efficient animals,â&#x20AC;? says Jeff Hyatt, CHA breed development coordinator. Questions about this project and inquiries pertaining to participation, should be directed to Jeff Hyatt at the CHA office by phone (403-275-2662) or e-mail: jeff@hereford.ca. See the following promising report from our American Hereford neighbours, detailing their own version of a feed efficiency trial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the National Hereford Feedout. Taking place at Fairleigh Feeders in Kansas, Hereford cattle showed a 12 per cent advantage at the feedbunk over the yard average. The same trial demonstrates tremendous progress where muscle shape and carcass quality is concerned in the breed, all without sacrificing efficiencies at the bunk and in terms of cost of gain.

National Hereford Feedout 2011 Report By Tom Granzow K A N SA S H ER EFO R D A S S O CIATI O N , S EC R E TA RY The National Hereford Feedout was held at Fairleigh Feeders near Scott City, KS. There were two tests, one started in December of 2010 and the other in February of 2011. Steers and heifers were both on feed for these trials and breeders from all over the middle part of the country participated. The cattle tested were mostly straight Hereford, both horned and polled. There were a few black and red baldy steers in the test, but all would qualify for CHB as they were at least half Hereford. In the December started group, just over 100 head of steers from four breeders went through the test. The Hereford breeders involved were Bookcliff Herefords, Russell, KS, KEG Herefords (Ken Stephens) from Valentine, NE, Linton Polled Herefords, Miller, NE, and MM Ranch Polled Herefords, Chanute, KS. The weather turned nasty at the beginning of the trial and this brought some major challenges. The steers in this trial had an average daily gain of 3.58 pounds per day. The range was from 2.77 to 4.35. The yard average for the same period of time was 3.82. The yard average is a compilation of data from ten different feedyards in western Kansas and comes from the K-State Extension Department. In the feed efficiency and cost of gain department, these steers had a feed efficiency of 5.10 pounds of feed per pound of gain on a dry matter basis. The range was from 4.14 to 7.37. The yard average was 5.73, giving the Hereford cattle a 12% advantage at the feedbunk. In the cost of gain side of things, the test cattle fed for .86 per pound of gain, WHILE THE YARD AVERAGE WAS  ! COST savings of 12% again for the Herefords. The range in cost of gain was from .71 to 1.24 per pound of gain. The cost of gain in this trial and in the yard average does contain all costs, including feed, yardage, medicine and processing costs. This is important to note, as it shows that the Hereford cattle cost less at the bunk and in the overall costs, such as the cost that goes with treating sick cattle. In the carcass department this set of steers really proved their worth. They had an average Ribeye area of 13.21, and average marbling score of 5.10 (Choice), a hot carcass weight of 817 pounds, and average backfat score of .52 inches, and an average dressing percent of 63%. This made them have an average Yield Grade of 3.02. Their average live weight was  POUNDS Overall, many positive things can be

said about this trial, but one thing comes to mind immediately. Because of severe weather and blizzard conditions in December when these cattle were started, the days on feed were somewhat higher than in years past. This could explain the advantage to the yard average in gain. It is important to note that the Hereford cattle had an average carcass yield grade of 3.02. With all those days on feed and the efficiency of the gain, in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market the Herefords showed the muscle and carcass merit to pay their way in an elongated feeding regimen. Quite different from our past reputation. We have made tremendous progress in the muscle and carcass quality areas, without sacrificing our efficiency at the bunk and in the cost of gain. This is important on an industry standard that rewards diversity in marketing. The feedyard manager told me that since the Angus breed went so strongly in selection for marbling, he has to really watch the days on feed to avoid getting too many 4s and 5s in the Yield Grade area on the black hided cattle. This equates to more flexibility in the marketing of the Hereford and Hereford sired cattle. In the February started group of cattle, seven breeders started 177 steers and 35 heifers. The breeders involved were, Rausch Herefords, Hoven, SD, Carver Polled Herefords, Winfield, KS, Harmony Herefords, Quinter, KS, Steve Douthitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4V Herefords, St. Francis, KS, Shumaker Polled Herefords, Wetmore, KS, Krieg Herefords, Basco, IL, and Simon Polled Herefords, Seneca, SD. The steers in this group had a average GAIN OF  WITH A RANGE OF  TO  The yard average during the same time frame was 3.67, a 7% advantage to the Herefords. The average days on feed FOR THE (EREFORDS WAS  AND THE YARD average was 142. When it came to feed efficiency, the cost of gain for the Hereford cattle was .88 per pound of gain. The yard average was 1.04. This gave the Hereford and Hereford sired cattle an 18% advantage over the yard average. In the actual dry feed consumed by this group of steers and how it compared to the yard averages, the test cattle converted at a 5.03 pounds of feed per pound of gain, while the yard average for steers during THIS SAME TIME FRAME WAS  4HIS equates to a feed savings of 17%. The feedyard didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to sell near as much feed to these Hereford breeders as they did to their average customer. It really does pay to feed Herefords. In the carcass department this set

of steers really did well. They had an average Ribeye area of 13.55, and average marbling score of 4.8 (High Select), a hot carcass weight of 821 pounds, and average backfat score of .44 inches, and an average dressing percent of 63%. The average Yield Grade was 2.84, excellent by industry standards. Their average live weight was 1303 pounds. The Hereford heifers also did well. In respect to gain, they had a range of 3.02 to 3.35 and that made the average  4HE YARD AVERAGE WAS  4HE Herefords gained at a 3% advantage to the Herefords. The heifers were fed an average of 172 days and the yard average WAS  The heifers fed efficiently, too. Their AVERAGE COST OF GAIN WAS  PER POUND of gain while the yard averaged 1.08, 10% advantage to the Herefords. They converted at a 5.58 pounds of feed per pound of gain. The yard average was 6.15 pounds per pound of gain. The Herefords get it done 10% better again. As for the carcass data, the females had an average Ribeye area of 12.10, and average marbling score of 5.7 (Choice), a hot carcass weight of 756 pounds, and average backfat measurement of .56 inches, and an average dressing percent of 64%. The average Yield Grade was  4HEIR AVERAGE LIVE WEIGHT WAS  pounds. These numbers are great for heifers and this set of Hereford heifers really showed their worth. In summary, thank you to all of the participating breeders. The data was slow coming in, but we got it and have sent it off to the AHA for further analysis. These breeders brought a set of cattle that represented the whole Hereford breed very well. They showed that horned or polled, male or female, large groups or small, we can and do compete very well in the modern beef industry. A 10 to 17% advantage in feeding costs is very significant in any market, especially when you can have high quality carcass and gain results as well. These steers and heifers were not hand picked and represented various and very diverse genetics and management techniques from many different environments. This kind of a study does much to show the industry and prospective commercial customers that ALL of the old myths about Hereford cattle are being dispelled by progressive Hereford breeders that pay attention to the things that really matter in the industry, not just the fads and myths that come down the road. Thank you to all of them. It is a pleasure to work with you

The following are summaries of what the data reveal:

1. Calving Ease Direct decreased steadily as we selected for increased growth rates in the eighties, using actual weaning and yearling weights with in-herd indexes. Within three years of EPDs being published, this slide stopped and since then, in the past 17 years, there has been a continuous progression to easier calving cattle. The American herd has put more selection pressure on calving ease and has done a little better at

improving this trait in their national herd compared to Canadian breeders. s In the past eleven years, Direct Calving Ease in Canada has been behind the average of other PACE countries in regards to the percentage of phenotypic change achieved. The USA and Uruguay have both been effective in improving calving ease recently, while Canada and Argentina have been somewhat behind. 2. Birth Weight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Historically, birth weights in Hereford cattle have steadily increased along with weaning AND YEARLING WEIGHTS 4HIS CHANGED IN  WHEN EPDs were released. After eight years of birth weight selection based on EPDs, birth weights plateaud for another 10 years. In recent years, we are actually seeing a decrease in the average Hereford birth weight EPD, in both Canada and the US. The trend lines in Uruguay and Argentina are similar to the trend lines in North America. 3. Weaning Weight and Yearling Weight EPDs have both trended continuously upward, at the same rate, in both the US and Canada, before and after EPDs were released. These traits are easy to select for. However, EPDs, as a breeding tool, may actually have slowed the genetic change of these traits somewhat, as breeders struggled to conquer the birth weight (BW) and Calving Ease (CE) issues. In the past 11 years, Canada, Uruguay and the USA have increased phenotypic change in relative unison, with the USA being slightly ahead of the pack where increasing weaning and yearling weights are concerned. Argentina has been behind in both these traits, with their percentage of phenotypic change roughly half that of the rest of the PACE countries recently. 4. Milk EPD trends show that before EPDs were released, there was little change in the population, in relation to this trait. In fact, the data from Uruguay and Argentina show genetic milk values decreasing over TIME 3TARTING IN  THE .!#% .ORTH !MERICAN Cattle Evaluation) group, comprised of Canadian and U.S. EPD values, was able to dramatically increase the milk EPD at similar rates, though the Canadian average has always lagged about 2 -3 years behind.

This gap seems to be closing, however, as the difference this past year is nearly negligible. The ease with which we have been able to change this EPD causes some concern. If we are not careful, we will breed our Hereford cows out of the environment in which they have done so well for the last 150 years. In other words, as we get the genetic potential to milk at higher rates, it will come at the cost of reproductive and production efficiencies in the marginal pasture lands in which the Hereford cow is expected to do her work. In order to maintain her condition, grow herself, milk and breed back, all at the same time, the range cow must achieve a balance with her nutritional inputs. If she milks too much for the feed available to support all these demands, she will first reduce her body condition and then she will likely fail to breed back. Even just a decrease in body condition will translate into increased costs of production, as cows need more feed to get them through the winter. It is interesting to note that the Uruguay and Argentine milk EPD has not increased at the same rate as it has in North America. That is partly a factor of necessity, because these nations fatten more of their cattle on grass. Scrotal EPDs are slowly and progressively trending higher across all four PACE member nations. The percentage of phenotypic change in this trait amongst the PACE countries has been similar, with the exception of Argentina, whose values for this trait have only increased slightly in recent years. REA has shown the same steady increase over the last 30 years, as have weaning weight (WW) and yearling weight (YW) EPDs. This trait is a reflection of the same selection pressure put on growth rate. FAT EPD has not changed statistically in either the US or Canada in the last 30 years. Marbling EPD has shown a slight increase in both the US and Canada in the past 10 years, as a result of selection by our breeders in response to market pressures created by packers. This is more evident in the US data where the pressure to emulate the CAB (Certified Angus Beef program) success has been a driving force. Care must be taken when interpreting this EDP graph as the vertical axis scale has to be scaled appropriately to show any significant changes.

The World Hereford Conference is now history and upon reflection, it is hard to believe an event that took two years to plan, happened so quickly. For those of you who took the time to attend and participate in either all or part of the conference, I believe you can take great pride in having been involved, and in sharing in the success of showcasing our country and our cattle to the world. There are a lot of people to thank in hosting such an event and I hereby do so in no particular order. Firstly, THANK YOU to our CHA staff who worked so diligently in the weeks prior to and during the conference. Most are still in the recovery stage and trying to catch up on their regular administration work. We need the membership’s patience over the next few weeks as work orders put on hold during July are now being completed. I especially want to thank WHC Chairman Jay Cross and CHA President Randy Radau, along with all our volounteers, for their support, time and efforts. All the volounteers sacrificed time from their own livelihoods and/or regular jobs and it was a big commitment to be involved on the WHC committees. A special thanks to their spouses and families who

Firstly, THANK YOU to our CHA staff who worked so diligently in the weeks prior to and during the conference. Most are still in the recovery stage and trying to catch up on their regular administration work. We need the membership’s patience over the next few weeks as work orders put on hold during July are now being completed. stepped up to help at home, while mom or dad or both were away at another WHC meeting. It was stated by many, that the National Hereford show was perhaps the best Hereford show in many years, both in terms of numbers and quality. There was no bottom end in any of the classes, which is a credit to all the exhibitors, who spent months selecting and preparing their cattle for the show. Business was done and will continue to be conducted in the months and years ahead. The Purebred Pen Show – a first, to my knowledge – was also a huge success and went more smoothly than any of us ever anticipated. Everyone enjoyed the judging on horseback and seeing the cattle in their “working clothes”. There were many complimentary comments from international visitors who watched the show and visited Herd Bull Alley. It will be interesting to see if this pen show concept will be ever be repeated by either our own or other associations. Last, but not least, I want to express appreciation to all our sponsors who provided in excess of $200,000 in sponsorship monies to make the entire conference affordable and possible. This group includes the Hereford breeders who either hosted or participated with cattle at the pre and post conference tours. The facilities, food and hospitality at each and every location was superb. Again, our international guests appreciated seeing the cattle in their “working clothes” and in their natural environments. In closing, I believe we achieved our objective of providing a good mixture of tourist and Hereford events, raising the profile of our breed in Canada and creating a schedule that allowed for business and the marketing of our genetics to the 21 countries who attended the conference.

Il est difficile de croire qu’après deux ans de préparation, la Conférence Mondiale Hereford est déjà une chose du passé. Pour ceux d’entre vous qui ont pris la peine d’y participer de près ou de loin, soyez fiers d’avoir fait partie de cette opportunité de démontrer la qualité de nos Hereford canadiens au monde entier. Plusieurs personnes méritent d’être remerciées pour leurs efforts apportés l’organisation de la conférence. Parmi eux, je dois un gros merci à toute l’équipe de l’association. Chaque employé s’est dévoué pendant plusieurs semaines avant le début de la conférence. Nous sommes encore en récupération au niveau de l’administration et des demandes d’enregistrements. Nous apprécions la patience de nos membres. Le travail sera complété d’ici quelques semaines. Je dois également remercier la personne en charge de la conférence, Jay Cross ainsi que le président de l’association, Randy Radau et tous nos bénévoles. Ils ont tous sacrifié plusieurs heures de leur vie personnelle pour la réalisation et le succès de la conférence. Nous apprécions aussi l’apport de chacune de leur famille qui a du prendre les bouchées doubles à la maison, pour ainsi libérer ceux qui étaient impliqués à l’organisation de la conférence.

Parmi eux, je dois un gros merci à toute l’équipe de l’association. Chaque employé s’est dévoué pendant plusieurs semaines avant le début de la conférence. Nous sommes encore en récupération au niveau de l’administration et des demandes d’enregistrements. Nous apprécions la patience de nos membres. Le travail sera complété d’ici quelques semaines. Le jugement national Hereford a été décrit en tant que le meilleur concours d’animaux Hereford depuis plusieurs années; tout autant pour la qualité que la quantité. Mêmes les dernières places de chaque classe étaient des bovins de qualité. Félicitions aux exposants pour la préparation de leurs exhibits et nous espérons que les transactions en ont valu la peine et qu’elles continueront dans le futur. Le concours des groupes, qui a été jugé à dos de cheval s’est très bien déroulé; probablement mieux que nous avions prévu. Les spectateurs ont bien aimé pouvoir évaluer les animaux dans leurs conditions naturelles. Nous avons reçu plusieurs compliments au sujet du concours et du salon des taureaux provenant des visiteurs internationaux. Il reste a voir si le concept sera répété ici ou ailleurs. En terminant, je dois remercier nos commanditaires qui ont appuyé la conférence avec des dons de plus de $200,000. Cette contribution nous a permis de rendre la conférence abordable à tous. Parmi eux, toutes les fermes qui ont reçu et nourris les participants au long des tournées avant et après le congrès. Votre hospitalité a été de première classe. Voir des animaux dans leur milieu naturel est toujours une activité très populaire. Je suis convaincu que nous avons atteint nos buts d`offrir un mélange de culture canadienne et de bovins Hereford de qualité, dans un programme intéressant qui a permis aux participants de 21 pays de se divertir tout en faisant du commerce.

Wo w… . h o w e xc i t i n g t o host the 67 international guests, along with over 150 Ontario breeders, sponsors, enter tainment guests, speakers and visitors from across Ontario with 170 lunches served, as part of the World Hereford Conference post-conference tour! En-route to the Orangeville fairgrounds, each guest was handed a packet prepared by the Ontario Hereford Association with up-to-date information on the beef industry in Canada and Ontario, some historical Ontario facts, a copy of the Ontario Hereford News, two pamphlets explaining the Ontario Corn-Fed Beef program and an Ontario tartan bookmark with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association pin and the Ontario trillium pin attached. Also included was an official commemorative program for their two-day visit to Ontario. It was surely at HOT time in many ways, including the temperature throughout the day. This did not deflate the enthusiasm of all, however, who enjoyed rich fellowship, fun and a great learning experience, as we shared conversations on diverse topics all day. Post-conference tour host, Wallace Pugh and crew certainly pulled out al the stops to ensure that Ontario would be remembered as one of the

favourite places among World Hereford Conference events. Ontario breeders enthusiastically displayed breeding stock and materials to showcase the top breeding programs we embrace in our province. Guests were invited to judge individual farm displays as an all-round marketing ef for t by the breeders to declare the winner and reser ve ‘People’s Choice’. Thank you breeders for your participation. Marbren Farms - Winner Medonte Highlands- Runner-up Presented By: Alliston Feed Services – Masterfeeds

Vendor and craft displays lined the walls. Fascinating, interesting items kept everyone busy, as conversation along with business deals, buzzed throughout the building at the Orangeville Agricultural Society fairgrounds on July 23rd. Some of the best was yet to come when Emily Flack and her crew held everyone captive with a dazzling performance of music and dance, typical of Ontario. Videos ran, cameras clicked and clapping resounded throughout the whole performance. Who said that this was for old fogies, as everyone, young and old relaxed, even in the heat!

Some breeders held draws that we re of fe re d at their respective c a t tl e d i s p l ay s , with all the winners being International Guests who learned about purchasing, housing, feed rations and feeding to marketing. The whole operation was thoroughly presented. The last stop on the tour involved a little R&R, as guests entered the cool, peaceful atmosphere of the Dufferin County Museum, and were greeted and treated royally and given snacks and refreshments. Greetings followed with a presentation relating to some of the experiences and breeding stock of the first Hereford breeders in the area. In the evening, guests relaxed, sharing their experiences and saying goobye. The following day the tour traveled through Niagara region vineyards, enjoyed lunch at the Skylon Tower and enjoyed Niagara Falls from the Maid of the Mist before journeying onto the airport to return home.

President’s Message During my term as president of the Alberta Hereford Association (AHA) I have seen some astounding changes and all have been very positive. As I look back, we have gone from a weak calf market to near record highs last fall and winter of 2011/2012. The average price per bull has increased dramatically and every bull sale last fall and this spring were very successful.

I would just like to remind all breeders that we need everyone to transfer all cattle they have marketed as this is the primary form of income for our AHA. I am very proud that the AHA was a major supporter of the World Hereford Conference and especially the Rancher Day and Closing Banquet. WOW! What an unqualified success! The place was packed with top cattle and enthusiastic cattle breeders from all over the world. The success of the WHC will impact Canadian Hereford Breeders for years to come. I have personally thanked and congratulated Gordon Stephenson and Jay Cross on a doing such a fantastic job on organizing this event; as should we all. Thank you to Justine Gardner, the Alberta Junior Hereford Association Adult Advisor, for leading our Juniors for the last two years. She has done an amazing job! We know that you will always have Herefords in your Heart, Justine. We welcome Jennifer Jenkins to the position as the new Adult Advisor.

The future of the breed is our Juniors. I would just like to remind all breeders that we need everyone to transfer all cattle they have marketed as this is the primary form of income for our AHA. We need this income to promote and advertise our breed. As I say goodbye as your president, I would like to thank Michele Rutledge, our manager, for all of her hard work over the years. We are very lucky to have such a passionate and qualified person in this position. I would like to welcome Leonard Poholka of Breton West Herefords as your new AHA president. Lastly, I thank my wife Terry and our sons, Hal, Adam and Coleman, for their support throughout my AHA presidency. Nels Nixdorff Managers Report The past year was an incredible year for the Hereford industry in Alberta with Canada hosting its second World Hereford Conference in 36 years. This responsibility was a huge one. Planning had been underway for the past four years. It was a daunting task but one

huge success and an event all Hereford breeders can be proud of. There was a strong Hereford presence at the Balog Auction British Breeds Auction Event last October and at the Medicine Hat Pen Show in December, 2011, where the AHA served as meal sponsors. Sponsorship was also provided to the Peace River Beef Congress in January. The Northern Alberta Hereford Club was kept busy with the fourth annual Hereford Genes Event to which the AHA delegated some sponsorship dollars. The Northern Club was also present at the Canadian Bull Congress in Camrose in January. Both of these events continue to be very popular. The Calgary Bull Sale was another busy place with lots of optimism in the air this past year. Thanks to those who bring cookies to the booth or help with serving coffee and popcorn.

Please check out our website at: www.bchereford.ca Because the website is hosted locally with the webmaster being a member, it will be updated often! Thank you Don… great job!!!

Nobody welcomed and entertained as many international guests, travelling independently, before and after the WHC as did Don and Leslie Richardson of Richardson Ranch in the Haida Gwaii and Janice and Trevor Tapp of Copper-T Ranch in the Fraser Lake area. From July 1st and beyond the cattle shows at Olds, a total of 25 visitors, in couples or in groups, visited the region’s attractions and toured the ranch. Ten BC breeders exhibited cattle at the WHC shows at Olds, of which several champions resulted – including the Grand Champion Junior Bonanza

The Williams Lake Bull Sale and show was well attended on April 19th and 20th. A Total of 109 bulls sold, with 37 of them being Herefords. The top selling Hereford was an entry from Deanfield Ranch: Deanfield 15N Stnd Lad15X, selling for $6,400.00 to Turner Ranch Ltd. of Pritchard, British Columbia. The Hereford sale average was $3,316. The Yellowhead Hereford Breeders’ Association decided not to host a Mark of Excellence (MOE) Show this year, due to commitments relating to the World Hereford Conference.

The BCHA website is up and running!!! Because the website is hosted locally with the webmaster being a member, it will be updated often! Thank you Don…great job!!! The World Hereford Conference (WHC) pre-conference tour through British Columbia was a resounding success. It began with a lunch at Murphy Ridge Farm near Abbotsford where over 160 delegates on three buses joined hosts Henry and Velma Braun and local Hereford breeders who had their animals on display. From there, tour guests were off to Copper Creek Ranch, enjoying the hospitality of the Stevenson family, viewing local cattle and staying for dinner. A lot of followup will occur from these visits, as business was transacted in terms of semen and embryos, between local and international breeders. Secretary General of the World Hereford Council, Jan Wills, went out of her way to thank tour hosts on what she referred to as a great event and an outstanding tour. The hospitality was greatly appreciated by tour guests, who also remarked on the beauty of the Fraser Valley. Many said that Canada and specifically that region, would be a holiday destination in the future.

It’s been a life-changing experience and I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without the Canadian Junior Hereford Association. Through the adventures I’ve had through my experience with the CJHA, the World Hereford Conference was one of the most exciting. A big thank you on behalf of the CJHA to all those “behind the scenes” organizers, the judges, the sponsors, the exhibitors and the participants. We as a junior association had the pleasure of incorporating our Junior National Show with the World Hereford Conference.

CANADIAN  HEREFORD  ASSOCIATION

Honour Roll Memorial Scroll

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

Memorial Scroll Ed Heidecker Ed Heidecker was born i n 1 9 11 i n Middle Lake, Saskatchewan, in his family’s log house. He was t he youngest of five children. Ed completed h is Grade 8 educat ion in a one-room school house in the countryside near Middle Lake, which was considered quite an accomplishment in his day. After Grade 8, he got involved with the family farm. In 1937, Ed married Lena Hoef licher and the two of them were blessed with three children - Ethel, Diane and Barry. Ed took over the family farm in 1937. Ed was an active member of the Trinity Lutheran Church, which was located just a half mile from the farm. He was involved in the construction of a new church building and the amalgamation with another congregation, to form

Faith Lutheran Church within Middle Lake. Ed helped establish the senior home - Bethany Pioneer Village, the local phone lines and was an active member of the road plow work group to clear roads in the winter. Ed also helped to establish the 4-H Beef and Grain Clubs in Middle Lake. In 1946, Ed dispersed his family’s commercial cattle herd and continued to expand their purebred Hereford herd, and their grain farming operation. He involved his family in all aspects of the Hereford business from calving, to breeding to showing and their production sales. In April of 1963, at their production sale, Ed sold a half-interest in a bull for $ 6,500 making it the highest valued bull in Canada at the time. Ed promoted the breed throughout Saskatchewan and in July 1963, Ed and Lena were featured on the cover of the Canadian Hereford Digest. In 1964, Ed and his family had the first Polled Grand Champion Bull at the Regina show. There were

441 Herefords entered. In the same year, their now incorporated Triple H Farm production sale gross ranked second in the country. Ed had many cattle imported from and exported to the USA. In 1951, he sold a bull to Ed Lewis in Dilwyn, England. Ed and Lena hosted delegations from Spain, Russia and Australia over the years. The herd was dispersed in 1977 and Ed and Lena semi-retired and moved off the farm into town in 1978. Sadly, Ed passed away on May 2nd, 1993. The Hereford breed lost a great ambassador of the breed that day. It is with great honour t hat t he Canad ian Hereford Association inducts Ed Heidecker into its Memorial Scroll.


Honour Roll Robert Marvin Hull Jr.

The Canadian Hereford A s s o c i at io n w o u l d l i k e t o introduce our newest Honour Roll Inductee, Robert Marvin Hull Jr., - better known as Bobby Hull. Bobby grew up in a family of 11 children, of which he was the 5th born, in rural Point Anne, Ontario. Bobby’s dad, Robert Sr., was a labourer for the Canada Cement Company and was a pretty good hockey player himself. At the age of 13, the Chicago Blackhawks gained the rights to Bobby and at the age of 14 he left home to play Junior B Hockey in Woodstock, Ontario, for the Woodstock Warriors. He then went on to play for the St. Catherine’s Teepees - the Blackhawks Junior A farm team at the time. On family drives through nearby Hastings County, Bobby would often see Red and White-faced cattle. He told his family that “Someday, I will have my own Hereford Cattle!” Bobby event ually joined t he Blackhawks Organization in 1957 at the age of 18 where he played 13 seasons. He was the first player in the NHL to surpass the 50 goal mark in a single season. He then played in the W HA with the Winnipeg Jets and finished off his Hockey Career with the Hartford Whalers in the NHL, with 610 goals and 1,170 points. He also amassed 303 goals and 638 points in the WHA. At the time of Bobby’s retirement from the NHL, he was ranked the second highest goal

scorer and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983. True to his youthful exuberance and declarations, Bobby acquired his first Hereford cattle in 1959. For 53 consecutive years, Bobby has owned, bred, sold and acquired Hereford genetics. To emphasize his passion for the business of breeding Hereford cattle Bobby states, “I’ll have Hereford cattle until the day I die”. He bought his f irst Hereford cattle with Ralph Richards of D emorest v i l le, O nt a r io, a nd his herd eventually grew to 125 cows. The early herd names were Goldenhawk Hereford Farm and Hull View Polled Herefords. In 1968, Bobby moved his herd to Whitewood, Saskatchewan, where he partnered with Walter Horn under the name of Hull and Horn Herefords. When Bobby signed for one million dollars with the Winnipeg Jets in 1972, he moved his herd to Elmcreek, Manitoba, to partner with Bob Miller, under the herd name BNB Polled Herefords. Then in the late seventies, BNB d i sp er sed and d i ssolved it s partnership cattle and Bobby moved his cattle to various Ontario Hereford Breeders. Eventually, he forged a management agreement with Lorne Hadden of Blue Dove Cattle Co. Bobby’s Herd moved to Bear Island, New Brunswick in 2003, where Michael Goodine took charge of the herd, now named BNC Polled Herefords. BNC Polled Herefords is now comprised of 75 cows, 30 yearling heifers and numerous herd sires. Some notable animals that have been bred, ow ned or show n by Bobby Hull over the years include PRL Justa Five which was bred by BNB Polled Herefords & Bob Gordon and was a National Champion Female, Elmbar Calibre was owned partially by BNB Polled Herefords and was a National

Jr. Champion Bull. Bobby also purchased half-interest in STLBRK Gilead 67K (a.k.a. “Stick”), which is the fifth most influential sire of the Canadian Hereford herd. Throughout the years, Bobby has been very active within the Canadian Hereford Association, lending his famous hockey name to support cattle sales, junior programs, zone events and CHA promotional initiatives by signing thousands of autographs, donating hockey memorabilia and making personal appearances. In 2002, Bobby was recognized by the Ontario Hereford Association’s East-Central Zone for his many contributions to the advancement of the Hereford breed. Through t he decades, Bobby has attracted new investors and breeders to the Hereford cattle business from non-agricultural communities. Professional hockey players, business leaders and entrepreneurs are among the many who never would have invested in a single Hereford beast if it were not for Bobby Hull’s persuasion. Some remain Hereford enthusiasts today. Wherever Bobby Hull travels t hroughout t he world, he is recognized as an NHL legend. However, it must be mentioned that when he is acknowledged he always mentions his passion for Hereford cattle and as such has been a loyal ambassador to our breed of red and white-faced cattle.

Walter LaClare December 21, 1927 – January 3, 2012 It is with regret that the Canadian Hereford Association announces that Walter LaClare passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012, in the North Battleford’s Union Hospital. Walter passed into the hands of the Lord, holding the hand of his loving wife of 62 years, Betty and in the other, his rosary. While the last month of his life was particularly difficult, he was surrounded by family and friends. He is survived by his wife Betty, and children - Dan (Verna) LaClare, John (Gloria) LaClare, Jeanne (Gerry) Bohn, Wally (Kerry) LaClare, Bill LaClare, and George LaClare – and his grandchildren - Adrian (Laura) LaClare, Brent (Lisa) LaClare, Chris LaClare (Vanessa Wiebe), Elton LaClare (Yeo-ju Song), Michelle Teteroff (Neil LeSalle), Dustin Bohn, Lee (Rheann) LaClare, JJ (Ashlea) LaClare.

His greatest joys were to be in the open air, improving his farm, working his stock, recording local history with his camera, visiting friends, exploring new country and later in life, writing poetry. When Walter took on a project, he passionately saw it through. While passionate, he was also able to see the humour in the trials and tribulations of everyday life. He always enjoyed a good laugh. The family would like to sincerely thank the staff of the palliative care unit of the North Battleford Union Hospital, all of the local community and organizational volunteers for their kindness, understanding and support during this most difficult time.

Cover Photo Contest! We’re moving our photo contest to October this year! So it’s not too late to get your photos in. We’re looking for submissions from across Canada of Hereford Cattle, so run out there with your cameras and get busy! OR Do you have a great shot from last year? Or maybe 10 years ago? Send those in too. We want to see them all! Photo Requirements: 1. Keep in mind this is for the October Issue, so a summer/fall or commercial photo is ideal, but don’t let that stop you from sending photos from all seasons. Also send us your pictures of Hereford Influence Cattle and Hereford Events and anything else Hereford related! We will attempt to feature your photos and/or stories on the contents page and in Letters to The Association. 2. Have a story to go along with the photo? Send that in as well, we would love to hear what it took to get that perfect shot! 3. Let us know where the photo was taken and who took the picture. 4. Shots that are taken as a portrait work best for the cover, but again, send us any great landscape photos you have. The cover isn’t the only place we may use your photos! 5. Send your photos in with the original resolution. Please do not edit or crop the photos. We will take care of that at the office! 6. You don’t have to be a member to submit your photos! 7. Please note that all photos submitted become property of the Canadian Hereford Association and can be utilized in any Canadian Hereford Association publications or other CHA advertising. Email your photos to erin@hereford.ca

THE TEN PERCENT Ten percent of the people do 90% of the work And they get to do it for nuthin’! And that’s not the only perk, They’re asked to donate to causes, contribute their cash and their time, Get up early, usually stay late, and always claim they don’t mind. They serve on boards and commissions, participate in the potluck, Bring snacks for the kindergarteners, for hayrides they furnish the truck They take their turn on the fair board, as deacons or soccer moms Jury duty or Salvation Army, ringing bells and gathering alms. Raise funds for endless projects, the Food Bank, the FFA Missions in far away countries, Girl Scouts and the PTA Call on the shut-ins, fight cancer, or maybe teach others to read, Through Rotary, Lions or Kiwanis, they work to fulfill a need. The ten percent you can count on to sign up, to help and belong Always ready and willing, they make our communities strong. They often don’t get the glory or noticed by everyone But, they’re easy to find at a party, cleanin’ up after it’s done. What causes man to serve his fellow man? At best, I discern Not money. Sometimes a ‘thanks’ is all that they’ll earn. And it can’t be Evolution, where only the toughest survive, Or lessons learned in a classroom…”Compassion, see page 25”. But it’s there in certain people, giving satisfies their needs You can’t find it in a brain scan, but you can see it in their deeds No physical exam can spot it, it won’t show up on the chart But if I had to guess what IT is, I’d say it comes from the heart. So I’ll just admit that we’re lucky the ten percent are right here ‘Cause without them nothing would happen, and they do it all volunteer. VOL from the Greek meaning: work like a horse UNTEER meaning; without pay
