Words from the

Editors

Half a century...Wow, that’s a long time! The state of Missouri brought home perhaps the most well-known sports championship in North America. The Super Bowl 54 championship title went to the Kansas City Chiefs!

For I know the joys

and discomforts of agricultural life...

-the National FFA Creed

At the time of this publication, the rings were won nearly a month ago, but there are many fans who still continue to celebrate the huge honors. Have you been in the Kansas City airport lately, or even at any public event within the state? I’m sure the team in 1970 never dreamed it would take the franchise 50 years to achieve the title again. Persistance helped the Chiefs get here. They kept their eye on the goal even through the tough years, the years when the fans were disappointed, ready to throw in the towel. Do you ever feel this way about agriculture? The agricultural way of life is not for the faint of heart. For decades, farmers and producers have faced challenges of drought, mud, trade threats, feed shortages, the list goes on and on. I think back to the National FFA Creed – “I believe in the future of agiculture.” I hope you, too, really believe that. The part that gets me everytime is about working on a good farm and seeing the pleasant days as well as the most challenging days. “For I know, the joys and discomforts of agricultural life,” the creed continues. Yes, don’t we all? The many months before, we make breeding decisions only to loose a calf at birth. So many hardships over the years, it would be too many to count. Today, I hope you choose to focus on the joys in agricultural life. Aren’t we lucky to work in an industry that focuses on families, God’s beauty and giving back by feeding the world? This spring as the crop comes up and the new babies run around the green pasture, I hope you are able to see the true beauty in what we do for a living. Keep your eye on the ball, and let’s see what the next half a century holds!

News from the

American Hereford Association Multi-talented Players Review the top-10 team of sires of 2019-born progeny to see how they deliver maternal excellence and end-product merit.

I’m especially encouraged by how many new commercial cattlemen are choosing to come home to Hereford. These producers like what they see and recognize the value Hereford genetics provide to their operations.

It’s hard to believe March is already here, and, at least to this point, the winter months have been milder compared to a year ago. The National Western Stock Show (NWSS) was another successful event filled with great cattle and strong commerce. The cattle that strolled the “Yards” and paraded the “Hill” were a great example of the strength of the breed. I want to give a shout-out to all of this year’s new exhibitors, as it was great to see these programs showcasing the genetics they are marketing.

Here is a list of the top 10 registration sires for 2019-born progeny as of Feb. 3, 2020. As you study the average expected progeny difference (EPD) summary of these bulls, notice the strong multi-trait excellence this group offers. In fact, half of these bulls have daughters recorded with an average nursing ratio of 101.1, and seven of these bulls are, or have been, tested through the National Reference Sire Program. The proof is in the pudding and as a whole this group is delivering when it comes to maternal excellence and end-product merit.

After the NWSS, Jack Ward and I had a great trip to Red Bluff, Calif., to watch the 79th anniversary of the Red Bluff Bull and Gelding show. I’m proud to say the England family from Oregon exhibited the supreme champion bull of overall breeds. Congratulations to all who made this event successful, and Hereford breeders will be proud to know Certified Hereford Beef® was the feature product throughout the week-long event.

Shane Bedwell

American Hereford Association Chief Operating Officer & Director of Breed Improvement

Spring planning With breeding season right around the corner, I hope you all have taken the time to analyze your calf crops and have a plan in place to continue making progress with your customers. The start of the 2020 sale season has a great feel to it and Hereford genetics have been in strong demand at sales I have recently attended.

I encourage you all to dig deep into your bull battery to find areas where you are excelling and areas where you can improve. It sure seems the front door is open for Hereford genetics to continue making great strides in the commercial market, but we must keep a keen eye on economically relevant traits which make all segments of the business profitable. It’s far from a silver bullet answer, but striving for aboveaverage trait excellence and focusing on convenience traits like docility and feet and leg soundness are a must to generate profit. How ’bout them Chiefs!!!

Women Association

Update Greetings everyone! We hope your new year is off to a great start! We have a lot of exciting things planned for 2020 and look forward to seeing everyone this year! The Hereford Women of Missouri hosted the social hour prior to the Missouri Hereford Association meeting and banquet on Dec. 7, 2019. This took place at the James Taylor Youth Building on the Missouri State Fair Grounds. During the banquet, Morgan Crutsinger was crowned the 2020 Missouri Hereford Queen and was also honored with the Missouri Herford Women scholarship. Congrats to Morgan on all her accomplishments. We would like to say a big “thank you” to everyone that donated to the social hour, the live auction and the silent auction. Also, a big “thank you” to Lindy Roth and family for providing the table decorations for the tables.

The Hereford Women will be planning a fundraiser this next year of assembling and selling a Hereford Women cookbook. We will be selling the cookbooks at the Missouri Cattlemen’s Cattle Show in June, as well as other shows and events throughout the summer and fall. We would certainly appreciate your support to raise money for our group that provides many scholarship opportunities for our Missouri Hereford youth. We are always looking for new members to join our organization! If you are interested in joining, please send your dues to Marijane Miller at 20500 Sioux Drive, Lebanon, MO 65536. Memberships are $15 per year. Please watch our Facebook page to keep up with all of our activities during the year! We are looking forward to seeing everyone this spring and summer!

Haleigh Ferguson, Missouri Junior Hereford Association Fundraising Chair Note from the Advisors MJHA Members & Families— With a new year comes new plans for the months ahead and new goals to achieve with your junior Hereford projects in 2020. Even though the days of summer seem far away, start working toward these goals and getting plans in place to make this summer your best year ever. No matter what your goals are—to win your county fair, to represent our state in the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) team fitting contest, or to win a scholarship from the Hereford Youth Foundation of America—the work starts right now. If you haven’t paid your 2020 Missouri Junior Hereford Association (MJHA) dues, the time is now! Dues are $15 per member and need to be paid by April 1, 2020. Please mail a check, payable to the Missouri Junior Hereford Association, to MJHA treasurer Taylor Miller, 20500 Souix Drive, Lebanon, MO 65536. Your dues must be paid by April 1 to be eligible for the MJHA Outstanding Member awards, which are voted on by all members at the state fair and awarded in December at the Missouri Hereford Association banquet. Two events you won’t want to miss this summer are the Missouri Junior Hereford preview show, which is held in conjunction with the Missouri Cattlemen’s All-Breeds Junior Show, set for June 12-13 in Sedalia, Mo., as well as the JNHE, July 11-18 in Louisville, KY. Be watching for information about ownership and entry deadlines, as well as many of the JNHE contest sign-up deadlines that come earlier in the spring, so that you don’t miss out. The next MJHA meeting will be Saturday, June 13, in Sedalia, Mo., and will start 14

30 minutes after the conclusion of the Cattlemen’s Hereford show. We will meet in the bleachers of the auction ring at the youth building. This is one of our biggest meetings of the year, so we hope everyone can attend. We will also have a special meeting of all members planning to attend the JNHE to organize state activities. If you plan to participate in contests at the JNHE, please let Susan Rhode know as soon as possible. Many deadlines for individual contests are in April and May, so check the AHA website and get those dates on the calendar. We will have state-level contests for all age divisions of Illustrated public speaking, team fitting and Hereford bowl contests on June 12 in Sedalia, Mo. Watch the MJHA Facebook page for times and locations for these contests. If you plan to compete on a grill-off team, please have your team members recruited and know what recipe you plan to enter by the June meeting. The MJHA showmanship contest will be Friday, June 12, at 6 p.m. in Sedalia, Mo. Participants must be dues-paid members before the start of the contest. Members will compete in peewee, junior, intermediate and senior age divisions as outlined by the AHA. All participants must show a Hereford in the contest. Contact any of the MJHA board, or advisors, when you get to the show to sign-up. MJHA fundraising chair, Aidan Kleinman, is gathering items for the Missouri state basket that the MJHA will donate to the HYFA silent auction at JNHE. Half of the profits from the sale of the basket come back to the MJHA. If you would like to donate, or help Aidan gather donations, contact him or any of the advisors. Junior Association Update | March 2020

Missouri plans to participate again this year in the state tailgate at the JNHE. We will finalize the food we will serve and other plans at the June meeting. Families that would like to help with this event should contact Kyla Waters, who serves as our adult chair for this event. According to the MJHA bylaws, which can be viewed on the junior section of the Missouri Hereford website, anyone interested in serving as MJHA advisors must be nominated during the MJHA meeting in June. Nominees will be presented to the MHA board for approval, and then voted on by the membership at the MJHA meeting at the state fair in August. If you—or someone you know—is interested in serving as advisors, we encourage you to contact any of the current advisors to learn more about responsibilities and commitments for the advisor roles.

Hereford Youth Awarded in NJHA Fed Steer Shootout

For three years running, the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) has brought real-world experience and education to its junior membership. In 2019, 67 youth from 15 states entered 206 steers in the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout contest, powered by BioZyme Inc. and the Feed the Future program. This year’s NJHA contest winners were recognized for their efforts Oct. 25 at the Hereford Honorees awards ceremony in Kansas City, Mo., and received close to $20,000 in awards from the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and BioZyme. Contestants collected actual feedyard performance and carcass merit data on pens and individual entries of Hereford and

Hereford-influenced steers while gaining a comprehensive industry education on topics such as ultrasound technology, genetics and cattle health. All steers were fed at Gregory Feedlots in Tabor, Iowa, and through a generous sponsorship from Texas Stardance Cattle, steers were hauled to and harvested at National Beef Packing Co. in Dodge City, Kan., as candidates for the Certified Hereford Beef® brand. “The NJHA Fed Steer Shootout proved to be yet another successful year for the participants and I would like to congratulate all of the winners on their accomplishments,” says Trey Befort, American Hereford Association (AHA) director of commercial programs. Participation nearly doubled from the previous year and so did BioZyme’s financial com-

mitment and quest to bring education to the forefront of the contest. Contestants entered performance portfolios from data reports they received throughout the feeding period, and wrote an essay about what they learned from the process. The top five participants were selected from the submitted portfolios, and had the opportunity to travel to Kansas City, Mo., to compete for the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout Junior of the Year title during the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference. These juniors presented a short speech and were interviewed about what they learned from the contest and applicability in the beef industry. This year’s award winners included Champion purebred individual — Ben Ridder, Marthasville, Mo.

Q and A:

Ben Ridder, 15-years-old, of Marthasville, Mo., sat down with us and explained his experiences with the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout.

How long have you been participanting in the Fed Steer Shootout? All three years

What have you gained from entering cattle into this contest?

I’ve gained knowledge on feeding cattle and allowed our farm to have tons of information and data collection to analyze and use in our farm going forward.

How do you select your steers for the program? Ben Ridder, Marthasville, Mo., consigned the grand champion purebred individual. Pictured (l to r) are: Trey Befort, AHA director of commercial programs; Jessie Judge, BioZyme Inc.; Ben Ridder; and Ashley Fitzsimmons, BioZyme, Inc.

I look at the weight and first make sure they meet this criteria. Then, it’s all in the genetics. I know which sire groups on our farm have the best ability to grade prime.

What would you tell other juniors thinking about getting involved with this? You should do it! I’ve got my calves selected and entered already for next year’s contest.

Cow Herd Efficiency: How Much Can We Improve It? Monty Kerley, Ph.D., Strategic Advisory Committee, GrowSafe Systems® My association with GrowSafe Systems® began over a decade ago when the University of Missouri became the site of the first installation in the United States. As a professor at the University of Missouri in the Animal Sciences department focused in ruminant nutrition, I was uniquely interested in GrowSafe Feed Intake technology. My interest in the Feed Intake technology stemmed from wanting to study the genetic potential for energetic efficiency in cattle and to identify if a relationship of mitochondrial function to energetic efficiency existed. It was already known that other species had substantial variation in metabolic efficiency. The poultry and swine industry used genetic outliers for metabolic efficiency to increase feed efficiency of production animals. We hypothesized that ruminants would follow suit. With GrowSafe’s technology and analytics we were able to conduct various trials related to natural feeding behavior, feed efficiency and performance in a research environment. We first studied mitochondrial function (respiration rate) among beef calves with differing residual feed intake (RFI) phenotypes. We found that low RFI (metabolically efficient) calves had more rapid uptake of oxygen by mitochondria than high RFI calves. This finding gave support to our hypothesis that RFI was a trait that did measure metabolic efficiency, or energetic efficiency of cellular

24

metabolism not influenced by growth rate (mature size) or composition of growth (muscle vs. protein). Our research identified differences in complex I – a primary entry point for electrons to the respiratory chain – of the mitochondria, which plays a role in energy metabolism, to demonstrate differences among RFI phenotypes. We believe more metabolically efficient animals have the ability to take up oxygen faster and replenish ATP pools quicker than less efficient animals. By being quicker to maintain phosphorylation ratio,

and therefore replenishing the required levels of ATP, satiety is reached sooner thus requiring less feed intake. If intake is reduced

Industry News / Advertisement | March 2020

for this reason, because mammals cannot uncouple respiration, then less carbohydrate is consumed and less must be deposited as lipid. This is what happens when inefficient calves are contrasted to efficient calves, inefficient calves have more subcutaneous fat depot than low RFI calves. Most important to us was that RFI differences among calves had a biological reason for the differences; differences in cellular energy metabolism between low and high RFI calves. We also measured repeatedly in calf populations studied a 1.4-fold difference in dry matter intake by calves but with similar body weight gains. The range in feed efficiency of the population, without selection, was 40%. Assuming a herd of cattle have a normal distribution for RFI, selection for RFI could improve efficiency by 20%. There is no other single technology that holds this much promise to reduce feed costs. A producer that had made genetic selection for RFI a priority for sires used and heifers retained as cows reduced feed to gain of his calves in the feedlot by one pound of feed per pound of gain, an approximate 17% reduction in feedlot feed cost. We conducted a series of experiments to better understand RFI throughout various stages of production.

Hereford Member Spotlight

The Hereford Committed Duo Jim and Linda Reed have spent a lifetime dedicating themselves to the beef industry, specifically with the Hereford breed. When asked about Jim and Linda, many described them firstly as “extremely humble,” to further with admiring characteristics such as taking their job very seriously and priding themselves on quality customer service. For those who do not know Jim, he has had thousands of Hereford customers over the years and has had a great impact within the beef industry from coast to coast, specifically in Missouri. Linda grew up raising purebred Hereford cattle and registered Tennessee Walking Horses, only a couple miles apart from Jim in Green Ridge, Mo., just outside of Sedalia. This is where it all began. After Jim’s dad passed away, Linda’s father took Jim under his wing and introduced him to the registered Hereford business in 1962. Afterwards, Jim and Linda became a great husband and wife team, and grew a successful business together in the same area. Jim started providing ring services back when he was in college, and then he started selling Hereford semen. The semen business grew over the years, and they saw the need for someone to help small cattlemen sell their cattle. The couple was teaching at the State Fair Community College and were looking for a career change, so after finding this need came three closely knitted successful businesses – Reed Enterprises, Midwest Cattle Service (MCS) and Reed Farms. Jim said, “Linda has played a very key role in the business, from organizing and constructing catalogs, to clerking and cashiering at many sales.”

Linda has done all of the secretarial work, as well as helping with the cattle when Jim was gone on the road. Talk about a dream team! They did have farm work help from Jim’s cousin J.C. Hunton for many years. The Reed Farms operation was started by Jim and Linda in 1965, where they continued their passion in Green Ridge, a place where the family has continued for five generations. Jim and Linda have two sons, Brian and Craig, who grew up surrounded by the industry. The Reed family was always involved with the junior shows when Brian and Craig were showing. Brian won Senior Showmanship at the Polled Hereford Junior Nationals in Springfield, Ill., and showed heifers that normally stood at the top. Brian also had a small Simmental herd. Craig served on the National Junior Polled Hereford Council and exhibited the National Champion Bred-and-Owned Female in 1994, which continued to win the National Champion Cow-Calf the next year. Jim and Linda have four granddaughters, a gift to Linda who finally got her girls! Craig and Natalie have three daughters: Macy, Mallory and Maggie. They call Craig the “weekend warrior” as he works in Kansas City during the week. Macy, Mallory and Maggie live close to Reed Farms and work daily with their mother taking care of the cattle. They are involved in showing at the county level and at the Missouri State Fair (MSF). One of the girls was even on the recent MSF marketing billboard image. Brian and Samara have one daughter, Terrell, and live in Abernathy, Texas. Brian teaches agriculture, and his daughter Terrell is very involved in showing goats.

Helping youth has been near-anddear to Jim and Linda’s hearts over their career. Jim said, “We have always tried to help at the junior shows and encourage youth to get involved.” While Jim and Linda were starting Midwest Cattle Service (MCS) along with partner, Bill Maerli, they worked with Ernie Wallace and Greg Walthall, who have both made quite a name for themselves in the Angus and Simmental industry. Jim helped others, like Jim Daehn, gain experiences in the beef industry while managing sales. Jim, Linda and Bill Maerli worked together for 10 years, then Jim and Linda went on with MCS. Jim recently returned to the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in January. Attending always brings back fond memories of the many years he has attended, success stories and introductions that have been made. When referring back to the NWSS from years past, Jim said, “We had the champion bull in 1991, a bull that we bred and then was shown by Charlie Boyd. Charlie Boyd II was working for NASCAR owner, Richard Childress at the time. He brought Richard over to see the bull and we had a very good visit. He was a real down to earth guy. Also, in the fall of 1995 we sold our cow herd to McMinn Ranches in Texas. They took three bull calves from these cows to Denver in 1996, having the Grand Champion Pen of Three Bulls, all sired by GK Airborne A58.”

Left: A testament to Jim’s commitment to Hereford breeders is his ability to remember the names, hometowns and even street addresses of his peers. He continues to serve as a consultant and ringman at sales nationwide while producing and promoting Hereford genetics everywhere he goes. Right: Jim and Linda have four grand daughters who all have an interest in the livestock industry.

Center: 1994 Junior National Polled Hereford Champion Female was exhibited by Craig and later also named the National Chamion Cow/Calf Pair. Right: Reed Farms owned Boyd Pinnacle 34Z with Boyd Beef Cattle who was named the National Champion Polled Hereford Bull at the National Western Stock Show in 1992.

Jim served on the Missouri Hereford Association (MHA) board, was the beef cattle superintendent for 17 years at the MSF, and just recently was appointed the board of the Missouri State Fair Foundation.

“Jim is highly respected, a hard worker and fair and honest to do business with,” said Birk. “Both Jim and Linda have worked very hard to be a source for Polled Hereford genetics. They have a tremendous client-list they have sold to.

“I always have looked forward to the MSF each year,” said Jim. “I have loved announcing every Hereford show at the state fair since 1972.”

“If you named somebody in the Hereford business, Jim always pipes up that he has sold semen to them over the years, and then, he can proceed to tell you their name, address and how to get to their farm.”

Jim used many University of Missouri college students as assistants at the fair and several long-time relationships developed from using these students. Jim and Linda have successfully managed numerous sales across the United States. The duo has managed hundreds of sales over the years, and at one point in time Jim remembers doing 45 to 50 sales a year. One of Jim’s favorite sales still is today the Journagan Ranch sale in Missouri. Marty Lueck, the manager of Journagan Ranch at Missouri State University and a long-time friend of Jim’s, has had 28 sales in the last 30 years together.

With the numerous customers and sales across the U.S., Jim found it enjoyable to travel the country. He laughs saying “Don and I tell the same stories” as they travel past places where they have worked in the past. Jim also remembers where every good restaurant is located, no matter what small town it’s in! Of course, anytime miles are traveled together, the ability to know someone better always

escalates. Imagine the stories Don and Jim would have from years of going to a sale every weekend together, traveling thousands of miles through rural America. “We were traveling around Omaha, and we stopped in at a really nice restaurant,” said Birk. “It was one of those deals where you get the whole meal for so much, and it was really good. The waitress comes by, she says ‘Are y’all ready for dessert?’ Jim quickly responds, ‘Absolutely not, we cannot eat dessert.’ The waitress replies, ‘Well, it comes with the meal.’ Jim pipes up quick, ‘cherry pie with two scoops of ice cream!’” Midwest Cattle Services has also been an integral part of the Reed’s business, which includes managing sales. Details are never overlooked, as the couple provides services including helping to select the cattle, placing advertising, putting together the catalog,

“I think that may be a record for the same ranch manager and sale manager working together for all those years,” admits Jim. Marty speaks very highly of Jim. “Jim is a true influencer of the breed,” says Marty Lueck, manager of Journagan Ranch of Missouri State University. “Jim and Linda have supported our Hereford breed for a lifetime. They continue to be a catalyst for the Hereford breed and our breeders’ programs.” Don Birk, a well-known livestock photographer, is another great friend of Jim’s, as they have travelled many miles together over the decades they have both been in the purebred cattle business. Don and Jim first met in 1972, and they travelled way too many miles to count going to Hereford sales, often riding together.

getting pictures taken, displaying the cattle, making the sale order, contacting the sales staff and much more. Jim was so grateful to be recently honored by the American Hereford Association by being inducted into the Hall of Merit. Jim exclaims, “It is an honor to be shared with Linda, as it has been a team effort working side-by-side for 55 years.” Jim has enjoyed working with the many breeders over the years. “At the end of the day, when the sale is complete, the most rewarding part of the job was knowing that we sold the cattle for the breeder, getting the best results that we could on that particular day,” said Jim. As Jim reminisces on the memories he’s made, he is very proud of his past. “We have made so many life-long friends in agriculture over the years,” said Jim. “We have helped people have successful sales and have also been able to see many young people come along and be successful largely due to being involved in the purebred livestock business.”

Cow Herd Efficiency Cont. from page 24... 1. The first experiment was to measure the impact of RFI phenotype on forage intake by grazing cows and the effect of using RFI as a selection criterion on calf energetic efficiency.

Beef cows with a low RFI (efficient) were compared to high RFI cows for forage intake on pasture. Forage intake was measured on pasture using forage growth and digestibility estimates. As a result, forage intake by negative RFI cows was 20% lower than high RFI cows. The potential to reduce hay requirements by 20% would have great impact on annual cow production costs and potential to reduce pasture forage requirement would be beneficial for pasture costs and improve condition when forage was limiting such as drought conditions.

2. We measured milk production in beef and cross-bred dairy cows comparing negative to positive RFI cows. Cows in each group had

similar dry matter intakes with negative RFI cows having 15% greater milk production.

3. The improvements in efficiency that have been measured in feedlot calves can also occur in the beef cow herd. A producer that has se-

lected for RFI over multiple generations saw improvements in calves retained through the feedlot, with economic gains in reduced feed costs being greater than carcass premiums he received. Production of these calves was accomplished by placing selection pressure for RFI on heifers retained into his cow herd. The producer noted that he used to hunt for hay to feed the cow herd and now has more meadow grass than his cows can consume. We concluded selection for RFI will reduce winter hay costs and result in cows that can maintain body condition better when feed is limited, such as during drought conditions.

36

4. We measured growth performance of calves generated from negative RFI sire and dam mating’s. We measured RFI in the dam as a calf post-weaning, mature nonlactating cow and lactating cow. The RFI value that best predicted progeny performance was from testing the dam as a heifer, which is fortunate since this is the easiest point to test females. GrowSafe has proven that RFI is a valid trait to measure and select. RFI, like any trait, should not be viewed as a single-selection strategy. RFI is a measure of energetic efficiency of the cell, or how efficient the cell is at converting consumed feed to energy that can be used for maintenance and growth. The selection for low RFI cattle (efficient) can have great dividends for the cow herd by reducing hay costs, maintaining body condition during feed restriction, such as drought, and producing more valuable offspring. Selection for RFI-proven genetics and using RFI EPD information should be no different than other traits producers target. Most importantly, RFI emphasis is as important for the cow herd if not more so than it is for calves in the feedlot.
