Words from the

Editors

Welcome to our first issue as editor of the Missouri Hereford News! For years, this newsletter has served as the headquarters for the state news and events. We hope to maintain this key communication role while expanding on the design element.

We hope to maintain this

key communication role

while expanding on the

design element.

When assuming the role of editor for a newsletter that has been around for years, it’s both nerve racking and exciting! Sue Hand, the previous editor of eight years, has left big shoes to fill. She has served as a tremendous mentor to us, and we are very grateful to Sue for allowing us to seek past information and knowledge.

New in 2016, our mailing list has expanded as we are not only mailing to Missouri and Midwest Hereford breeders along with Missouri FFA chapters, in a technology-driven world, we are also emailing a digital copy to more than 2,700 Hereford breeders. For placing four contracted colored page ads, as an incentive, we will email your advertisement out to this same list, giving you more opportunity to communicate with your potential customers. Each issue of the Missouri Hereford News is available on-line at www.moherefords.org While maintaining previous pricing, we are offering more colored pages than ever before as you will see within, and you will notice that the quarter page ad is now only offered in color.

We want to specially thank those breeders who purchased prime pages at the Missouri Hereford Association meeting back in December. Your support means a lot to us. To many of you who are calving, best of luck, and we look forward to promoting your exciting new offspring. If you have a marketing idea you would like to discuss, give us a shout. We are thrilled to be working with you! – The Editors, Rural Route Creations Cassie Dorran, editor

State Association

Update

State Highlights

As I was thinking how I might kick off the message, it hit me that fourteen years ago I was elected President of the Association. I remember putting together the agenda for the 2001 January board meeting without a Secretary. Thanks to the help of the Matt Reynolds Vice-President Eldon Divine Missouri Hereford Association Secretary/Treasurer at the time, we managed a great board meeting with new directions for the Association. Several of you might remember at that meeting I resigned as your President and the board appointed me to be the Secretary. I cannot believe we are starting our fifteenth year here in 2016. I say “we” because I could not do it without my wife, Barb, and I thank her. As most of you know by now, we have a new newsletter editor, Rural Route Creations. Cassie Dorran and Jocelyn Washam have done a great job with the first issue as you can see. They have waited a long time for this opportunity, and I am sure you will enjoy their work.

Talking about opportunity, the 2015 Missouri Hereford Association Opportunity Sale was another great success this past December in Sedalia. We had 32 consignors selling 51 lots. A big thank you goes out to Kenny and Michelle Spooler for donating an outstanding Sensation 028X daughter that sold in the sale to Phillip Mueller for $2,600 with proceeds going to the scholarship investment fund. Complete results can be found in the sale results section. We were able to sell these cattle with a 12 percent sale expense for the consignors, which is a really good rate for a sale like we have. Nearly every seat was taken and we had a large viewing crowd on the Internet as well. I want to thank the sale staff – Cody Lowderman, Jim Reed, Joe Rickabaugh, Don Birk, Barb Reynolds and the out-back crew. As always, this was a great association event following the annual meeting on Saturday evening.

We were once again able to have a booth at the Ozarks Fall Farmfest last October where we handed out nearly a full box of your membership directories. The 2016 MCA Convention was another good event for the booth where we teamed up with Tray Bedford with CHB to have a large trade show booth. We had a lot of good comments and handed out a lot of Hereford information.

A couple of interesting items from the January board meeting included Joe Kaczmarek reporting that a Hereford Influence/ The evening also included the election of directors to the CHB Advisory Board has been formed here in Missouri. The board. Amy Phillips was elected from district one, Brian board members are Joe Kaczmarek, Brad Mueller, Larry Day, Al Littleton for district two and Tim Bernt to start his second Bonebrake, Gary Wood, John Ridder and Tammy Holder.

News from the

American Hereford Association Corrections in Store Markets continue to change, and we are witnessing this now in the cattle industry. This time last year the market was on fire and moving onward. Safe bet that most in the cattle industry have seen or felt some correction the past several months. All segments of the industry— commercial females, bred heifers, feeder, yearling and market cattle not to mention seedstock cattle have seen a different trend in comparison to just eight to twelve months ago. Some have adjusted their sights and are moving forward. Some still are wishing for the results from last year. The winds of change for the market are upon us.

Opportunity time was also in season with those who had their numbers and houses in order. There were and will continue to be some really good buying opportunities due to this market. There was more than one sale that bred heifers penciled very well for those ready to seize the opportunity. Keep this in mind as we progress through the spring sale season. There will be buying opportunities for those ready and who have done their homework. Often quoted — you buy your profit.

This year in Denver during the junior show, one of those moments I immensely enjoy took place. A young lady who is no stranger to the winner’s circle, showing the overall supreme champion junior heifer at the American Royal, stood third in a young class of heifers in the Denver junior Hereford show. In less than a minute after the class had ended she had already spoken to the first and second place winners and congratulated them on their wins.

Junior Association

Update

Missouri Junior Hereford Association Officers

Hello fellow junior Hereford enthusiasts!

Spring is right around the corner which means it is time to start thinking about attending the Junior National Hereford Expo this summer! The JNHE will be held July 9-15 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Julie Choate Missouri Junior Whether you are considering attending Hereford Association for the first time or for your last time, President the JNHE is sure to be a good time for everyone! The first year I attended junior nationals was in 2011. Not only was this my first junior nationals, but it was also my first time competing at a national show. I was so excited to travel to Kansas City with my family for this adventure. During the months before the show while I was preparing my cattle for the show, I was thinking about the contests that I wanted to participate in throughout the week. I settled for competing in just one contest that year, but I wish I would have done more! Junior Nationals is also a great place to make new, lifelong friendships with people from around Missouri and the nation. With well over 500 exhibitors and their families in attendance, you are bound to make a new friend at some time throughout the week.

Of course showing cattle is the main reason we travel so many miles, but there are many other opportunities for juniors to get involved during the week-long event! The National Junior Hereford Association hosts multiple contests for individuals and teams from each state. Be thinking about the group of friends from Missouri you may want to compete with this year. The team activities include: CHB grill-off, Hereford bowl, judging contest, team sales and team fitting. You could also compete as an individual in the creative arts, illustrated speech, individual sales, showmanship and extemporaneous speech contests.

Even if you can’t attend, there is an opportunity for you to compete during the week. The photo contest consists of three categories: Hereford cattle, Hereford people and Hereford enhanced. Any photos that you submit will be on display electronically during Junior National week in Wisconsin and could be used in publications and promotions for the American Hereford Association and Hereford World. Photos must be submitted electronically by June 1st. You can also compete in the Promotional Poster Contest using the JNHE theme: A Hereford Scene in 2016. Entries can be turned in at the registration booth in Wisconsin or mailed to the American Hereford Association by June 15th.

Additionally, don’t forget about the scholarship applications that are due April 1st. You can find information about scholarships and contests at www.hereford.org by clicking on the junior tab. At the Missouri Cattlemen’s All-Breeds Show in June, the junior association will meet to discuss Junior Nationals. Before this meeting, have a good idea of what contest you might want to participate in because we will be signing up at the meeting!

The Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is the highlight of most Hereford youths’ summer activities. It is held each July, and is co-sponsored by the AHA and affiliated junior and state Hereford associations. Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, the JNHE provides an opportunity for competition of both junior members and their cattle projects. A hands-on type of program for youth provides educational, leadership and motivational forums. During the event youth can participate in more than 20-skill based contests.

Bellis Elected to AHA Board Jim Bellis of Aurora, Missouri, was announced as a new American Hereford Association director during the Annual Membership Meeting Oct. 31 in Kansas City, Mo. Jim will serve a fouryear term on the 12-member Board.

per year. They calve approximately 150 purebred females per year also, using mostly purebred females as recips for their ET program.

Jim has been named purebred breeder of the year by the Missouri Beef Industry Council, as well as seedstock breeder of the year four times by the Missouri Hereford or Polled Hereford Associations.

With a career in agriculture education, he grew his cow herd slowly, utilizing AI when affordable. He participated in the former APHA young sire testing program. For the existence of the program, the Bellis herd sampled young sires in comparison with proven reference sires.

Jim operated Missouri’s only Gold Performance Bull Test, cooperating with breeders from four states in feeding up to 50 bulls each season. He was diligent in keeping both the bull and heifer calf crops together as contemporary groups to maximize the use of data utilized to calculate expected progeny differences (EPDs).

He has served as president of Missouri Cattlemen’s Association’s seedstock committee and is a past president of the Missouri Hereford Association.

Jim Bellis, AHA Board Member

He was one of the first breeders to put EPDs in his sale catalogs. The Bellis family first cooperated with other breeders for 14 annual or semiannual sales prior to starting its own production sale in 2005. It has also been a regular participant in the AHA’s National Reference Sire Program. Working to breed low-birth-weight and calving-ease bulls that don’t sacrifice the growth and carcass traits needed for top-performing cattle, the Bellises sell up to 60 Hereford bulls

Professionally, after six years as a high school agriculture teacher, Jim began work for the state supervising Missouri high school agricultural education and FFA programs. He worked 24 years providing leadership to Missouri’s ag education programs with statewide enrollments more than doubling during his tenure.

He then transitioned to Missouri State University’s (MSU) School of Agriculture in 2009, where he now serves as assistant to the director for MSU’s Darr School of Agriculture in Springfield. Leading MSU’s recruitment efforts, in five years the agriculture enrollment has grown from about 380 to almost 700 this fall. In late 2013, Jim’s right leg was amputated below the knee due to clear cell sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. He describes the experience as a serious time of faith building, but prayers continue to be answered as regular scans show him as cancer free. He now wears a prosthetic.

Jim and his wife, Carla, have two grown daughters — Jamie Johansen and Joanna Wilkinson — and a son, Jonathan, who is a senior at MSU. Together, the family operates the J.D. Bellis Hereford farm. Jim and his family are excited about Jim’s opportunity to serve the membership of AHA and the Missouri Hereford breeders.

“I look forward to have the opportunity to meet and work with breeders from across the country, to hear their thoughts, understand their perspectives, sharing ideas,” said Bellis. “I’ve already enjoyed listening to the different perspectives that breeders represent. Their different goals, different feed and financial resources, different climates, different dreams. These differences are what make Hereford PEOPLE special.   Their common love Hereford cattle is what makes our breed special.”

The Academic Road Less Traveled Brianne Bishop is pursuing her master’s degree in reproductive physiology and doctoral degrees in veterinary medicine through the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri. She is a teaching assistant and conducting field trials related to her master’s research as a graduate student in the Division of Animal Sciences in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. Brianne has been pursuing dual degrees  through a joint initiative known as the MS/DVM program, a very intensive course study.

Through the MS/DVM program, graduates are able to work with beef and dairy cattle producers to offer a comprehensive listing of services as large-animal veterinarians. The cattle shown here are from the Thompson Research Center, one of the main places where the students from the Division of Animal Sciences conduct research.

“To me, it’s just been a great partnership with the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said David Patterson, professor of reproductive physiology who helped form the program. “I think the program has really opened doors for our students.”

In the short history of the program, which is thought to be the only one of its kind in the nation at the moment, only two other MU students have gone through the five-year regimen. The program was created to address the changing needs of the large-animal veterinary industry. Brianne is one of the first two students who have enrolled in this unique academic program at the same time. Brianne is in the process of finishing all of the requirements to earn their MS degrees before walking across the street and completing the DVM portion in 2018.

From early in her undergraduate program, Bishop talked with Patterson and Mike Smith, professor of reproductive physiology, about the idea of pursuing dual degrees. She also spent time visiting with then soon-to-be Dr. Neal Martin, the program’s second graduate. Bishop and Martin became acquainted through her family’s Hereford cattle, AbraKadabra Cattle Company.

“I could always see the track that Neal was on and I know he really enjoyed it,” Bishop, said of Martin, who currently runs a mobile veterinary clinic out of his hometown of Centralia, Mo., after completing the program in 2015. “It was always there as an option for me.”

“What really, as far as I’m concerned, sparks the interest in students accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine to then pursue a graduate degree in reproductive physiology, is the internship in reproduction,” Patterson said. “When they have a chance to participate in the internship, their experience is very hands-on and, in many cases, students don’t realize they have that interest until they get involved with it. Once they do, it creates a situation where they want to learn more.”

Brianne’s future interests include beginning her own veterinary practice that incorporates reproduction and herd health or veterinary consulting. “There are just a lot of options for me after completing both degrees,” Brianne said.

Hall of Fame Inductee

Generations of Hereford Passion Each year the Missouri Hereford Association chooses inductees into the MHA Hall of Fame for their valued commitment to the Hereford breed and Association. The 2015 inductee awarded at the annual state association banquet went to LeRoy Huff and family.

“Words cannot express our appreciation to the Missouri Hereford Association for their bestowing this illustrious honor to our family and farm,” said LeRoy. “It is simply overwhelming to know that we were so honored, when you look around our state and see how many worthy individuals there were from which to select. The talent pool is remarkable, and to just be considered in that pool is mind boggling.” LeRoy and his family were present on Saturday, December 5 to accept this prestigious honor. “This award has to be the highlight of our family legacy, and without the wisdom, vision and foresight of my grandparents, none of this could have been possible; this honor is truly appreciated,” said LeRoy.

In 1852 the family established a farm in Scotland County Missouri, the same farm maintained by the Huff family today. Originally, LeRoy’s great, great, grandfather Josephus Moore negotiated the purchase of 80 acres building the original homestead where the family continues living, with some upgrades over the years. Though the farm endured many hardships including the Civil War, an untimely family death, and depression struggles, the family remained steadfast with seven generations on the original farm over the past 150 years.

Josephus and wife Catherine had a daughter Margaret. It was Margaret’s family who would later start the Hereford legacy for her family. Margaret married Elisha Russell and their

Elisabeth as the Missouri Polled Hereford Queen 24

daughter Lenora was born at the homestead. In 1915, Lenora married Orville McClamroch, son of Jonathan and Catherine McClamroch. The McClamroch family gifted the bride and groom six Hereford cows and a Hereford bull as a wedding gift. And since that day, Hereford cattle have always been a part of the family farm.

Today, the farm is known as Huff’s Polled Herefords. In 2015 the 100th anniversary was celebrated with family and friends.

LeRoy and wife Jane have enjoyed many great memories with Hereford cattle and the Missouri breeders. From 1986 to 1990, the couple enjoyed serving as the Missouri junior advisors. They found the most memorable times in traveling across the United States, meeting and developing lifelong friends. During this time, LeRoy was given the opportunity to serve on two national committees with respect to the National Junior Polled Hereford Association. LeRoy and Jane have two children – Sean and Elisabeth Huff-Lonergan. Both enjoyed time at the Junior Nationals, winning cattle judging contests, beef quiz bowl and Elisabeth receiving 1st runnerup in the National Polled Hereford Queen contest.

Today, after working as a computer analyst for 20 years, Sean returned to the family farm in 2013 with his own family. While assisting with the farm, he is the computer program specialist for a major farm machinery dealer in northeast Missouri, The Farm Shop Inc.

She travels the world speaking and giving seminars on some of the most prolific meat science research in the world.

In addition to farming, the family has always had strong ties to education. LeRoy was a teacher, principal and superintendent for 40 years while Jane was a speech pathologist. While actively involved in the farm today, LeRoy also is an education consultant to the Missouri General Assembly. Over his years in education, three honors are to be noted – Missouri Principal of the Year in 1988, chairman of the National Secondary Schools committee in 1995 with invitation to the White House for a conference with the President of the United States, and an invitation to the People’s Republic of China in 1990 for a month long seminar on implementing American Educational systems to the Chinese people.

Today, Sean’s children – Jessica, Abigail and Caden will be the next generation to operate Huff Polled Herefords. Jessica showed her first Hereford heifer in 2014 and this summer Jessica and Abigail plan to exhibit at the Missouri State Fair, carry on a tradition that their father and aunt left for them in breeding quality Hereford cattle. The original Huff herd traces back to the Domino origin, and these baseline cows have been upgraded over the years, so that today the herd primarily represents breeding of Glenkirk Farms, Felton Farms and Journagan Ranch genetics. For years, flesh ability has been a primary goal and bulls must breed better than their ancestors.

Jane viewing the cattle

The family over the years has been known for their practical jokes and fun attitudes. As teenagers, Sean and Elisabeth would both take part in water and watermelon fights at stock shows and maybe even throwing their junior advisers in the stock tank! One particular memory that stands out was the opportunity to get to know and develop a personal relationship with the music group Alabama. Two separate years at the Missouri State Fair, Alabama performed at the Grand Stands, and after the performance came to the cattle barns to privately visit with Missouri juniors. Many juniors

“There are too many excellent cattle in the breed to keep cattle that do not excel in these characteristics – high fertility, calving ease, moderate birth weights, superior weaning and yearling weights, maternal traits and excellent dispositions,” said Sean.

Congratulations to the Huff family for their years of dedication to the Missouri Hereford Association and their continued commitment to the Hereford breed. As generations before, their loving commitment to the farm will continue, and Hereford cattle will remain a staple. A full list of past MHA Hall of Fame winners can be viewed at www.hereford.org

Returning to Normal in the Cattle Business

taxes on earned income, 6 percent state income taxes and 10 to 25 percent for federal income taxes, depending on one’s income and filing status. Add them all together and run the numbers. Tax bills could be steep unless producers lower taxable income by reinvesting smartly in their businesses.

Famous humorist Will Rogers once said, “An economist’s guess is liable to be as good as anybody else’s.” A quick review of cattle price projections over the past three years would support Roger’s observation. Few predicted how high feeder calves would explode in 2014 or how fast they would crash in fall 2015. We all missed it.

Feeder calf prices are now adjusting to rising calf crops, to Smart spending can lower taxable Joe Horner rising supplies of pork and chicken meat, to rising supplies of income, raising a farm’s long-term grain, and to a rising U.S. dollar crimping export sales. Call it a MU Extension Economist productivity and profitability. Plus, admit “return to normal.” it, spending money on farm stuff is just really fun. If we are entering a “return to normal,” what is in store for the next few years? This economist won’t attempt to forecast next year’s prices, but will make two observations. First, calf prices are still the best in history until two years ago. Secondly, historical cattle cycles tell us we have several years of increasing calf numbers ahead of us meaning lower trending prices.

MU Extension Livestock Specialist Eldon Cole has been tracking Show-Me Select Heifer prices compared to feeder calf prices for years. He offers a guide to the expected value of replacement heifers. According to Eldon, “From 1997 to 2015 the average Show-Me Select Heifer has sold for two times the price of 550 pound medium or large frame No. 1 steers sold at the same time in Joplin and Springfield.” Eldon observes that the range of heifer prices has been from 1.65 to 2.45 times the price of steer calves. Fall born heifer calves sell slightly higher than spring born heifers. The high of the range was set in 2015. Co-product feed prices have dropped with the price of corn and soybean meal in this “return to normal.” The MU Byproduct Feed List carries weekly updates. You can now sign up to receive a weekly e-mail with fresh prices every Friday at http://agebb. missouri.edu/dairy/byprod/listing.php

Pasture rental rates are still adjusting upward, rather than downward. According to the latest MU Cash Rental Rate Guide, the average pasture rental rate in 2015 was $38.41. With rising pasture land values, pasture cash rents are running 1.5 to 2.0 percent of the market value of the land. That’s historically low. The complete cash rental guide is available at http://extension. missouri.edu/p/G427 As we all “return to normal” this year in the cattle business, one must just remember to count blessings and remember that there are worse things than being “normal.”

Incomes this year are going to set records. Cattle prices have been fantastic. In addition, many incomes will be topped up by unexpected checks from USDA’s Livestock Forage Disaster (LFP) Program. The LFP program paid Missouri livestock producers over $200 million this year. This is to compensate them for 2012 and 2013 drought losses. That revenue is taxable income. High incomes are the good news. The bad news is that more income taxes will be due next year on this year’s higher incomes. The marginal tax rate is the bite that income and self-employment taxes will take out of your last dollar earned. Marginal tax rates for Missouri cattle producers range between 30 and 50 percent. Marginal tax rates include 15.3 percent for FICA and Medicare

30

A few examples of smart spending may include bringing land up to soil tests, liming, storing additional hay and feed inventory, and buying semen, vaccines and vet supplies. Also consider repairing fences, corrals, cattle guards, buildings and machinery. Investing in pickups, tractors, machinery and breeding stock can also help lower tax bills. Be careful not to overdo it, though. Section 179 expensing limits have dropped to $25,000 this year. This will stay unless Congress changes tax laws after the election. Bonus depreciation can help, but don’t count on dropping income taxes by buying one large purchase the week after Christmas unless you’ve consulted with your tax preparer.

Prepaying operating expenses for next year can also be used to lower taxes this year. Make sure you get a discount or have some other valid business reason for prepaying to satisfy the IRS that you are not making the transaction simply to avoid income taxes. Also, be sure the vendor will be around next year to deliver. Counter party risk is real.

Andy, Jenn & Molly McCorkill

My wife has suspected my affliction for several years, because we could be watching a movie starring some famous actor or actress that everyone in the world knows and, depending on their hair style or Jerry Crownover costume, I wouldn’t recognize them. For a few years, I’m sure she simply thought I was stupid, but has now come to realize I have a legitimate reason for being unable to readily identify people that I should know.

Until a couple of years ago, I always thought the diagnosis was merely more psycho-mumbo-jumbo. It was at that point, when I was attending a funeral, I was spoken to by someone I didn’t recognize. His voice, however, was familiar and I soon realized I was talking to someone that I see every day of the year and have coffee with every morning. Because it was the first time I had ever seen him without his hat, and in surroundings where I didn’t expect to see him, his face did not even ring a bell in my brain. Sorry, Ron.

A few months later, I was eating at a restaurant when an attractive lady came over and started talking to me as if she had known me for a lifetime. I’m sure I looked panicked as my mind raced with thoughts of…Is she an old girlfriend? Was she a student from long ago? Do I owe her money? Finally, and awkwardly, she stated, “You don’t know who I am, do you?”

American National CattleWomen’s Meeting You are invited to join the Missouri CattleWomen as we host the American National CattleWomen’s Region 3 & 7 meeting. Ladies from North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa will be joining us at The Elms, Excelsior Springs Mo., June 2-4, 2016.

Some of the speakers will be the Missouri Beef Industry Council and Jennifer Allowed – The Magic Brush Lady. We will have a presentation at the Van Till Family Farm and Winery by Marilyn McCray – Canning, Pickling, and Freezing with Irma Harding. We will be sharing ideas on beef promotion and education with other states and enjoy amenities of The Elms and the shops in downtown Excelsior Springs. Registration can be found on the MO CattleWomen’s Association Facebook page. If you have other questions, you may email Marsha at oldtrailsregion@gmail.com or Sue at skday@iland. net We hope you will make plans to attend!

Facial Recognition Disorder— it’s real—and I have it.

I was so embarrassed to admit that I did not, and I was even more embarrassed when she told me who she was and I realized that I had known both her and her husband for more than twenty years and considered them good friends. But, because we were away from where I normally see her, and the encounter was unexpected, my mind drew a blank. Sorry, Theresa. Last week, while attending a livestock auction, a young man came over and said, “Hi, Jerry. How’ve you been?” I tried to fake it but, once again, I didn’t have the slightest clue to whom I was talking. Sensing my confusion, he introduced himself and I was once more, red-faced. I have known him and his parents forever, ever since he was a youngster in 4-H with my sons. Sorry, Keith. When I returned from the sale and told my wife about, yet, another failure-to-know situation, she commented, “I know you have a problem, but I can’t understand how you are unable to recognize a human face, yet with at least a hundred cows, you can identify every one from a quarter-mile away.” “Well,” I answered, “they call it Facial Recognition Disorder, not Cow Recognition Disorder. I’d be in a heck of a predicament if I couldn’t identify my own cows.”

Then, after noticing Judy had gone to the salon and gotten a haircut, while I was at the auction, I added, “And just who are you?”

40 Years of Hereford Royalty During my reign as the 2015 Missouri Hereford Queen I had the opportunity to represent our association at The American Royal. While there, I attended the 40 Years of Royalty social on Oct. 31, honoring past state and National Hereford Queens, a once in a lifetime experience.

Kansas

During this reception hosted by the National Hereford Women (NHW), I had the opportunity see how the national and state queen programs have grown throughout the forty year milestone. I found it very intriguing to hear the previous queens talk about the influence the queen program had on shaping where they are today. While at the reception all past queens introduced themselves and shared their favorite queen memory. I found this to be my favorite part because it was entertaining as well as inspiring to hear all of their experiences. This was a great way to mingle, have fun, and meet women involved in the Hereford breed.

These past queens have become the face for women in today’s agriculture and Hereford industries. Not only do our queens wear crowns, but they have made a difference while doing it.

I enjoyed sitting down with past queens and talking about the how’s and why’s they decided to run. Some of the more recent queens are even the second generation to serve as a state or national queen.

I would encourage all girls who are interested in running for the Missouri Hereford Queen to do so. When I ran I was not sure what the job entailed, but I had a great year and was able to make many friends from all over the country. The true meaning of being a state queen is to represent our breed to the best of your ability. I would highly encourage all girls eligible to run. I had a wonderful time representing Missouri at this reception and all of the Royal events. I would like to thank everyone for making my year as Queen a great one! The 2017 Missouri Hereford Queen application will be due November 1, 2016 and posted to the Missouri Hereford Association website at moherefords.org – Shelby Bagnell, 2015 Missouri Hereford Queen

Woman Behind The Ranch Kitchen Alise Nolan of The Ranch Kitchen has agreed to supply a recipe for each Missouri Hereford News. Alise and husband Scott have three beautiful daughters, each actively involved in the National Junior Hereford Association – Ilissa, Bethany and The Nolan family of Gilmer, Texas Audrey. They operate Nolan Herefords in Gilmer, Texas, building a program around champions, both kids and cattle. Much of their time is dedicated to the industry and youth agricultural programs. With Audrey the only daughter left at home, Alise loves her time in the kitchen cooking for the family when they are all home together and preparing her famous meals at stock shows across Texas and at national Hereford events.

Alise credits her Granny and mother who inspires her to cook everyday. Her daughters also serve as her biggest critics, and for that she thanks them for making her an even better cook. Her ultimate wish is that each use the family recipes to make for their friends and family one day.

The Ranch Kitchen recipes show how easy cooking really is by helping readers learn to enjoy cooking as much as Alise does. To read more about Alise and follow her new recipes, visit her blog at theranchkitchen.com
