President’s Report

Spring 2014

Kyra McConnell

Hello Fellow Hereford Enthusiasts! I am honoured and excited to be the President of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association for the current year! The CJHA Council works hard to create as many opportunities as possible for the youth of the Hereford breed. The Heifer Lottery project is set up to help Juniors introduce different genetics into their own herds, from some of the best Hereford operations in the business across Canada. Vouchers for this project are drawn at Bonanza each year. The Semen Donation project has concluded for 2014. Congrats to those that nominated females this year and received semen from the many Hereford breeders that donated. This project gives Junior members the opportunity to improve their breeding program through their own sire selection. The semen that is donated this year will be made available for selection early this fall with a deadline set before the new year. Keep your eyes open for posts about this project on the Junior page on the CHA website, our Facebook page & Twitter! To be involved in these awesome opportunities and many more, you must be a CJHA member in good standing and have paid your yearly activity fee. To renew your Junior membership, or if you have any friends that would like to become a CJHA member please visit hereford.ca for information on Junior memberships or contact Meghan at the Hereford office! I would also like to extend an invitation to everyone to this year’s Bonanza, “Memories Made Here”, being held in Lindsay, Ontario on July 30th-August 2nd. Ontario CJHA members have been working very hard to make this event a success! Information about this year’s National Junior Show and registration material is also included with this issue of the Junior Influence and can also be found on the Bonanza website page, so be sure to read up on rule changes and get yourselves and your cattle registered by the June 1st deadline!! For those Junior Hereford members going off to, or that are in a post-secondary education program, remember to apply for our CJHA “Future of the Breed” Scholarship. Applications can be found on the Junior page on the CHA website and are due May 15! Any questions about any of the CJHA projects or events please contact your Provincial National Delegates or our National Adult Advisor Meghan Black! I look forward to seeing everyone at Bonanza this year and best of luck to those attending Provincial Junior events, as we keep the Hereford breed growing!

Provincial Reports British Columbia Heather Fisher-LeBlanc

BC is eagerly anticipating Bonanza in Lindsay this summer! There will be at least two BCJHA members attending. If you are a BCJHA member or the parent of a Junior who is interested in attending Bonanza, please contact either Catherine at (250) 293-6858 or Heather at (250) 855-8398. We would be more than happy to help you out! The Junior event that was planned to take place at the Little Fort Herefords Anniversary event lacked the participation that we had hoped for. However, after the successful participation of Juniors at the Inaugural West Coast Hereford Show in 2013, we are planning to host a Junior show in conjunction with this the Hereford MOE show in the fall of 2014. We have high hopes for this event and are continuing to try and get a group of Juniors together for the future.

Alberta

Michelle Schuepbach on behalf of the AJHA

The past year has been a busy one for AJHA members. With many of our members getting older we have been working hard on getting younger members more involved in the AJHA. This also includes plans to recruit new members in coming years. Some of the things we are working on include - Brochures that will be sent to 4-H members exhibiting Hereford cattle (both Hereford Influenced & Purebred), encouraging them to become CJHA members. - Updating the current Alberta Junior section of the AHA website to make it more appealing to Juniors. - In 2013 we opened up the elements of our creativity contests (art, photography, literature) at our Provincial Junior Hereford Show to all members in the province (not just those attending). This was done by accepting entries through online submission that were sent in via in digital format so that Juniors who couldn’t be present at the show could still participate. In 2014 we are holding our own Provincial Junior Show in Okotoks, AB on June 27 & 28. The past few years this show has been held in conjunction with Summer Synergy, in Olds. This is a show we still plan on supporting, though we are looking forward to connecting with more of our own Hereford Junior members in having our own event. The Executive of the AJHA for 2013-2014 includes: President: Michelle Schuepbach Vice President: Coleman Nixdorff Secretary: Sarah Nixdorff Treasurer: Jenna Nixdorff CJHA Delegates: Larissa Lupul, Chase Bennett (alternate Sarah Nixdorff)

Spring 2014

Saskatchewan James Hordos

Spring of 2014 has started off with some harsh weather here in Saskatchewan. Cold temperatures and a few storms have been enough to make us think it was still winter! The SJHA hopes that everyone did have a great winter and a good calving season whether breeders are just wrapping it up, or for more commercial breeders, just getting under way. The Saskatchewan Junior delegates, Miranda Heidecker and James Hordos attended the CJHA National Council Meeting on behalf of the SJHA. The meeting was held back in the beginning of March, in Calgary. For all of you Saskatchewan Juniors who have any questions or concerns regarding Bonanza or any other CJHA function or project please feel free to give either of us call or email, we are happy to help! This summer, the SJHA is again holding their annual Beef-A-Rama which is organized by Hereford breeders, Rob and Dawn O`Connor. It will be held at Glenavon, SK, in conjunction with the town`s local summer fair on July 12th. Make sure everyone marks this date on their calendars! (Beef-ARama is an awesome warm-up show for Bonanza!!). Last year the show had great Junior attendance with 34 members from across SK take part. The show will be held in the Glenavon Hockey arena where the show can go on, rain or shine! The SJHA encourages Juniors from Saskatchewan to participate, but we also invite Juniors from neighboring provinces to join us as well! The show has a very fun atmosphere and was enjoyed by everyone who attended the show in 2013. If anyone has any questions about the show, you can check out the website www.beefarama.weebly.com, and please don`t hesitate to give Rob and Dawn a call as they are excited to answer any questions. They do a great job organizing the show! From everyone here in Saskatchewan, we are excited to meet up with friends and fellow Hereford breeders this summer at all of our Junior Hereford functions! We wish everyone the best of luck with spring breeding, but also good luck to our grain farmers with seeding as they play a huge role in the cattle industry!

Manitoba

Jay & Samantha Rimke Here in Manitoba, the New Year brought in some very cold weather with lots of snow that many of us Manitobans wished that would of never came! However, we all survived and its slowly starting to warm up, and it finally feels like spring!

The Manitoba Juniors would like to invite you to our spring meeting, May 25th, 2014. All Juniors are welcome! From our Province to yours, we would like to wish you a happy calving season and all the best in the spring when cattle are sent to pasture and breeding begins! 6

Ontario

Justin McLaughlin This year the OJHA is extremely excited about hosting Bonanza 2014, on July 30th - August 2nd at the Lindsay Exhibition Centre, in Lindsay Ontario. The theme this year is ‘Memories made Here’ (and we promise to deliver)! Our strong board of directors consisting of co-chairs: Kyra McConnell, Justin McLaughlin and Cassandra Gorrill are working hard to gather sponsors and plot out the event. The board is meeting regularly to ensure tasks are being completed, and that preparations are going smoothly. The OJHA is also looking forward to their AGM coming up on April 12th, in Peterborough, ON. We would like to welcome any enthusiastic Juniors to join us! To all Hereford breeders: keep your eyes out for the Ontario Juniors as we’ll be looking for your sponsorship for Bonanza 2014!

Quebec

Allison Mastine

Quebec had four Junior members attend Bonanza 2013 in Brandon, Manitoba. Thank you again to the Manitoba Junior Hereford Association for putting in so much hard work to make everything run smoothly! Many Juniors got together to participate in the Junior Beef Show held at Expo Boeuf in October 2013. There were roughly 200-250 Juniors who participated in the Junior show on the Sunday, making it one of the biggest Junior shows at Expo Boeuf! Dylan Mastine and Jade Ouellet represented the Quebec Junior Hereford Association at the Royal Winter Fair. It was the first time Dylan and Jade participated in the Junior Hereford show at the Royal. The Quebec Junior Hereford Members are looking forward for the Quebec Junior Beef Show being held in Brome, Quebec from July 4th to 6th, 2014. We are hoping to have many Juniors attend Bonanza 2014 in Ontario to make many memories!

Maritimes Bennett Crane

Greetings from the Maritimes! We hope that everyone has had a successful winter calving and are excited for the upcoming show season! This year will be very busy for the Maritime Juniors.

1. How many Bonanzas have you attended? I’ve been to 3 Bonanzas thus far (Truro, St. Hyacinthe & Brandon). 2. What’s the name of your first calf or favorite cow?

Where is one place you would like to travel? If I could travel anywhere I’d like to be able to go to England or Australia, somewhere’s with a completely different culture and way of life compared to what we’re used to here in Canada.

Ashley Black, Maritime Delegate

4. What do you bring to the National Council? I haven’t been involved with the CJHA as much or as long as some of the other members that sit on the board but I’m eager and keen on getting involved and encouraging other members to do so as well. To the CJHA National Council I bring my quirky personality, my positive energy and my leadership skills. 5. How has Bonanza benefited you? Bonanza has benefitted me substantially! While I get to travel to new places across Canada to exhibit the Hereford breed, I also get to meet people that also enjoy showing cattle.

Being new to the CJHA Council, I plan to bring new ideas and welcome more members to the CJHA. I want to encourage Juniors to take advantage of what the CJHA has to offer, because the programs we do have are very beneficial to young individuals developing their own herds and in becoming more involved in the beef industry. 5. How has Bonanza benefited you? From participating in so many Bonanzas, I have had the opportunity to travel and meet many new friends and fellow Hereford enthusiasts from across Canada. Attending Bonanzas has opened my eyes to other cattle herds across Canada and has given me the chance to see how other Juniors work with their cattle. 9

Faces of the CJHA

Spring 2014

Cayley Brown, British Columbia Cayley Brown is a new member of the BC Junior Herefords, but is not new to the CJHA. She recently moved to Princeton after her parents took over as managers at Copper Creek Ranch. Born and raised in the agricultural industry, she started showing at the age of three. Cayley’s life has always revolved around cattle and she is extremely grateful to have been surrounded by so many skilled cattlemen and woman throughout her life. Cayley had extended family that had invested in Hereford for fun, and when they decided to get out of cattle, they gifted them to her. This was the beginning of her herd. Shortly after, she purchased some cattle from her grandfather, and since then has bought the odd heifer from different herds across Canada to keep new blood in her herd. Her favorite show to attend is Agribition, because she loves being able to compete against the “best of the best”. To date, Cayley says her most proud accomplishment was winning Miss Hereford World 2012, an online award judged by a panel of international judges. Aside from cattle, Cayley is passionate about dog training and rehabilitation as well as makeup artistry. Cayley said, “Going forward, my only goal in life is to constantly better myself, and in return, better the world around me”

Breanna Curry, Maritimes

Breanna Curry is from Wentworth, Nova Scotia. She is 18 years old and will be graduating high school this year with plans to continue on with her education.

Bree has always loved being around cattle and has been showing since she was three years old. Being around cattle comes naturally to Bree. She enjoys fitting cattle and has shown at many shows including the Oxford Expo and two National Junior Hereford Shows, Bonanza, held in Truro & St. Hyacinthe. Bree has been involved in 4-H for many years and enjoys helping younger members as well as lending a hand to anyone that needs it. She has been a member of the Maritime Junior Hereford Association and hopes to one day have her own herd of Purebred Hereford cattle under the “Castle Creek Livestock” name.
