Aren’t the holidays such a happy time? A time to be thankful for blessings, celebrate so many wonderful things and look ahead at the next year to come. Yes, 2016 is coming to an end, and what a year it has been! It’s hard to believe we took on this role of editor almost one year ago. As we reflect, serving as editor has been very rewarding. We get so excited to see the next issue in the mail, something we truly hope our readers feel also. Thank you to all of our advertisers, contributors and readers. Your kind words throughout the year make this job very rewarding. If ever you have a story idea, Around the Barn news or industry update, please reach out to us. We want this to be your publication.

We will once again be selling the prime advertising pages (inside front cover, the first right page, center spread, inside back cover and back cover) of the Missouri Hereford News. In purchasing one of these pages, a full year’s contract must be taken. All current advertisers in the publication will be receiving a survey in the coming weeks. It is very important to us that we receive your feedback. In December, we will have the 2017 Media Kit available for advertisers and accepting contracts for those who want to take out an ad in each issue to receive the best rate. To get you in the holiday spirit, this issue contains some helpful tips in serving up dinner at holiday gatherings and thanking your customers for their business. It’s the most giving time of the year, and don’t let the opportunity slip by to insure you have repeat customers. One small little gesture could provide big dividends. The events calendar is loaded with activities including shows, sales and Association meetings.

Spring Sire Evaluation Report Nov. 1 is the closing date for all birth, weaning, yearling and ultrasound data to be included in the Spring Sire Evaluation Report. Remember, a weaning weight or disposal code is required from all calves out of cows on inventory. Birth and yearling weights are optional; however, if a birth or yearling weight is recorded, then all calves in the calf crop must have that weight or a disposal code recorded. Remember, performance data are not required from embryo transplant (ET) calves.

Herefords are still in demand. Commercial cattlemen still see their value so let’s breed the good ones they want. We still have a lot of Hereford activities going on as far as auction and internet sales right here in Missouri this fall as well as the Opportunity Sale, annual meeting and banquet ending out the year. Let’s all make a point to go out and support each other at these events. If the events are packed full of people, it makes people feel like they’re at the right place to purchase cattle to improve their herds.

Known as the “Old Cape Fair” Southeast Missouri has hosted the annual district fair for more than 155 years. The fair is organized solely by volunteers who donate countless hours to plan, organize and produce the fair. Originally started to promote and improve the quality of farm products by encouraging farmers to develop new and better techniques in raising livestock and agricultural crops, agriculture still remains a focal point of the fair’s activities.

Those attending the recent field day had a great panel presentation for options of marketing and conditioning Hereford influenced calves. Frank Barnitz, operator of Net Worth Feeds and Feeding LLC, was on this panel and was featured in the last Missouri Hereford News. Frank and a group of investors have built a backgrounding lot in south central Missouri located near Salem, which offers several marketing opportunities and options for Hereford breeders.

buy your profit.

The word opportunity may take on several meanings in the months ahead. The fall sale season is ongoing and many of the sales have been solid to strong. There is also a tinge of softness in some of these sales and this leads to opportunity for the buyers who have done their homework and are willing to invest in some good genetics. Often heard is the phrase, “You buy your profit.” These words of wisdom may ring louder in the upcoming future for those that are ready.


The Missouri Opportunity Sale in Sedalia held the first Sunday in December is fast approaching. I had the privilege to tour Missouri and select cattle for this sale. There are some very good genetics and animals consigned. I encourage you to mark this on your calendar and plan to attend. I will be attending several sales this fall and if ever I can be of assistance in finding animals for your operation just give me a call. Also, my travels take me across the state of Missouri often in the fall. If you would like me to stop by and view your Hereford program, it would be my privilege. Just give me a call at 785-633-3188. Look forward to seeing you at some of the Hereford events in Missouri this fall. – Joe Rickabaugh, AHA Director of Field Services

Fall is in the air! The cool temperatures, leaves changing color, and cows calving makes it one of my favorite seasons. With that being said, I hope everyone has had a great year so far in whatever endeavors you are pursuing. Now, here are some of the happenings of the Missouri Junior Hereford Association. The Missouri Hereford Association held their field day in Smithville, Missouri, at Doss Hereford Farms on September 10. Some of the highlights for the juniors at this event were that they were able to participate in a fitting and showmanship demonstration by Cory Wood, of Civil Bend Herefords, and also the Skill-A-Thon that was put together by Scott and Tammy Adam.

President – Julie Choate Vice President – Anna Roth Secretary – Makayla Reynolds Treasurer – Brooklyn Adam Mail $10 Missouri Junior Hereford Association dues to 735 SE Wexford Rd, Lathrop, MO 64465 Reporter – Ellen Jackson Directors – Shelby Bagnell, Britney Adam, Dalton Reynolds and Isaac Rhode Advisors – Brad and Sherry Hurst Jimmie and Andrea Butler Mary Roth

A generous donation of a Priefert working chute was also given to us by Lathrop Feed and Grain in Lawson, Missouri. We are going to be raffling off this chute by selling chances, one for $5 or 5 for $20, at different sales and events throughout the fall. The winning ticket will be drawn before the Missouri Opportunity Sale on December 4, in Sedalia, Missouri. If you would like a ticket or more information, please contact MJHA President Julie Choate. The next big event that is happening for the juniors is the Missouri Hereford Association Annual Meeting and Banquet and the Opportunity Sale December 3-4, in Sedalia, Missouri. While at the Banquet we will be honoring the Outstanding Peewee, Junior, Intermediate, and Senior member, as well as giving out the Friend of the Juniors Award, so I encourage all of the juniors to come. On sale day, we are in charge of the lunch stand. We are in need of juniors to come work the stand as well as baked goods that are individually packaged with two cookies or brownies to a bag or a 12 pack of soda or water to sell. If you have any questions about the lunch stand, please contact Tonya Bagnell. We also have two donation lots that will be selling at the Opportunity Sale, one donated by Glengrove Farms and the other donated by Civil Bend Herefords, with all proceeds going to the Missouri Junior Hereford Association. Be looking out for those in the catalog. I hope to see everyone in December! – Anna Roth, Missouri Junior Hereford Association Vice President

Purebred Breeder of the Year

Falling Timber Farm Takes Advantage of all Sectors For more than 100 years, the Ridder family has been involved in farming outside of Marthasville, Missouri. Glenn Ridder was born into Ridder Hereford Farms started by his father, creating a passion for Hereford cattle that has lasted four generations later. At age 22, Glenn lost his father suddenly, forcing him to both become head of the family, taking over the farm-making decisions and carrying the financial burden at such a young age. It was Glenn’s practical way of raising Hereford cattle that still makes up the backbone of the operation today. With Glenn’s more commercial oriented background, he set off to attend the Chicago International World Fair as a young man while on the Mizzou judging team. At the fair was the most beautiful National Shorthorn Lassie Queen, Yvonne. As the story goes years later, the queen needed a coat and Glenn was quick to fetch one for her. A true agricultural love story, Yvonne married Glenn and brought her knowledge of raising purebred livestock to what is now today, Falling Timber Farm. Yvonne’s father had registered livestock in three species, perhaps most well known as Houghton Hampshires, selling sheep all over the world up until about 15 years ago. Yvonne’s brother along with his wife took over the operation that still exists today. Falling Timber Farm still utilizes line breeding, as taught by Yvonne’s dad decades ago, to help make their cowherd consistent and improve accuracies and efficiencies. The herd started with females from six registered herds located in Missouri and Iowa. Those initial foundation cattle worked best, the family agrees. Willard Kottwitz of Bland, Missouri, was one of the herds, and their cattle seemed to work really good for the family with a majority of their current genetics going back to these purchases. The other herd with lots of influence at Falling Timber Farm was from Schaake, a neighbor in their hometown of Marthasville. Jim Reed of Reed Enterprises remembers this breeder vividly as this was the first dispersion sale the company managed, helping pave the road to a large career in the livestock marketing business. Today, Glenn and Yvonne’s son John, along with his wife Heidi and their children Madi and Ben own and operate the farm. Heidi laughs as she recalls her first experience at Falling Timber Farm. Glenn had invited her to the farm on Labor Day weekend to help wean calves because they were in need of an extra hand. Although Heidi considered herself a horse girl and really wasn’t sure why she was asked, she obliged. “Apparently I wasn’t too bad at all helping work those calves,” she laughed. 18

Although Heidi and John attended the same high school, it wasn’t until they were both College of Agriculture students at the University of Missouri that they started dating. Now, you will find the two working alongside each other everyday. They consider themselves very fortunate to be involved in the family farm together.

“Our kids learn from us, and we get to spend every day with them,” said Heidi. “We work together for a common goal.”

Improvement to help facilitate new research programs and educate members on what they could do to genetically improve their herds. AHA programs such as Hereford 101 and research like the Harris Ranch and Circle A Heterosis projects began to revitalize the breed and create what we see today.

“This was only fourteen years ago,” said John. “I think we’ve made pretty good progress as I think we’ve made pretty a breed in such a short in amount of time.”

good progress as a breed amount of time.

such a short

Along with raising their kids on the farm, Heidi and John both admit that the next most rewarding part about their job is the people they have the opportunity to come in contact with. “We have some great, very interesting customers,” said John. “We’ve sold cattle from Washington to Florida and Montana to Texas, and each one of them has taught us something.”

To go along with their Hereford involvement, the family takes part in their local Cattlemens group and John and Heidi serve as the county wide 4-H beef leaders. Each year the family does something for their customers and this year will be hosting an open house at the farm on November 5.

Another way the Ridder family continues to learn is by taking part in industry activities. John was on the Missouri Beef Industry Council for six years, serving as chairman. Glenn served on the Missouri Hereford Association board of directors and John followed his lead right out of college, also chairing that organization. “In 2003 when I was fresh in my career, we were struggling as a breed,” said John. “Things were tough as Hereford breeders, and we were trying desperately to once again create a demand for Hereford cattle.” The board of directors at that time met with the University of Missouri and past American Hereford Association (AHA) Executive Vice President Craig Huffhines, to help target the needed areas of improvement. “The University ripped us apart,” John recalls. “They told us our birth weights were too high, our udders needed improvement and our cattle didn’t marble well enough.” Soon after that meeting, Jack Ward was appointed as the AHA Director of Breed Purebred Breeder of the Year | Nov 2016

Cattle are fed in big groups to prepare for the annual production sale.

Written by Rural Route Creations “We’ve done a hospitality room at the Missouri Cattlemen’s Convention before,” said Heidi. “We just want a way each year to get to know our customers better. We feel this is a very important part of our program, and a way to say thank you each year.” Along with raising Hereford cattle, the farm is very diverse including grain, a commercial cow herd, and serving as distributors for both Genex semen and VitaFerm mineral. John keeps busy on the road about two days a week between his distribution demands and delivering cattle to customers across the U.S. With his time away from home, the Ridder family relies heavily on Jeremy Couch, their operations manager, and a newer hire they welcomed full time this August, Jake Sehrt. Both men help keep things running day-to-day, assisting with both the cattle and farming. To help the cattle operation grow, the farm has relied on cooperator herds, allowing the farm access to 300 head of cattle instead of

200 head for their annual sale, consignments and private treaty sales. Jeremy also maintains some embryos at his own place, allowing the herd to grow quicker. Eight years ago Falling Timber Farm started their own production sale at the farm. What started as a silent auction has progressed to a live sale with around 80 head being offered each March, 50 percent of those being bulls and the other half females ranging in age from heifer calves to cows.

The program mostly calves in January with a large focus on spring calving, however, the farm does calve a few select females in the fall. As the farm raises cattle, problem-free animals are top priority. Udder quality, structure and good performance are all very important but smaller things such as pigmented eyes are also needed. “Customers want it all,” said John. “You have to raise something that is pretty complete and a consistent product that you can have time and time again.”

Heidi admits that it takes a lot of friends and family Besides phenotypical traits, to put on the event. The Customers want it . selection is based on EPDs family takes part in the food and performance data. High accuracy bulls are preparation and offers hospitality to all in only used, adding consistency to the cowherd. attendance. Calving ease, a lot of growth and carcass quality all are expected by Falling Timber Farm “We want to offer quality cattle at a reasonable customers. John says the farm will not even price,” said Heidi. look at a bull that has a negative Calving Ease Direct number. John adds that customer satisfaction is their number one priority. “Doesn’t matter how good he looks,” said John. “Our customers don’t want that. We often find a son of a well known A.I. sire, and we John and Heidi along with believe our cattle are more consistent than ever their children by keeping these cattle closely related while Madi and Ben choosing these good numbered sires.” accepting

One way the farm has found efficiency in their cow herd is through A.I. synchronization. John had an internship with Select Sires in college, and for 20 years, the family has concentrated heavily on this practice. The whole cow herd is synchronized for the first cycle, and then multiple bulls get turned out in each pasture with a group of cows.

Glenn and Yvonne Ridder have raised Hereford cattle for four decades under the name of Falling Timber Farm.

“If you really want your cow herd to be tight in only a few breeding intervals, it’s very important to have enough bull power,” said John. “You actually need more bulls than without synchronizing, as you want to get all your cows that come back in heat bred the first time, and it would be hard for one bull to cover this in a day and a half.” While more work and time commitment up front, this practice shortens Falling Timber’s calving season. Calves that are questionable on parentage are DNA tested along with any bull leaving the farm.

Falling Timber Farm is a diversified farming operation located outside of Marthasville, MO. Purebred Breeder of the Year | Nov 2016


Recently, the farm also DNA tested all of the cows in the herd. The University of Missouri chose Falling Timber to be involved in a Shedding Study, running DNA to find a hair marker. Having genomics on each cow provided by this program could serve as a huge benefit to the farm moving forward. Currently, the cow herd is being influenced by sires such as Prime Product, Prospector, Porterhouse and Net Merit, to name a few. The key for the Ridders has always been to find a knock-out mother behind the sires used. “Dad was really good to buy bulls from the start,” said John. “He tried to A.I. a little in those early years, but things were busy on his own, and so he would buy the very best bulls he could find. Typically, he would buy the high performance bulls at the tested bull sales.”

Choice Hereford Beef, consumers know where their beef came from, how it was raised and what it ate. With the cattle, grain farming, dealerships and meat production, the family still makes time for their children. Madi and Ben are both active in sports and pitch in with farm activities whenever needed. Both children enjoy summer cattle shows and being with their friends. They exhibit annually at the Washington Town and County Fair and New Haven summer shows. Falling Timber gave each child a calf to start their own herd. They have shown these animals as well as their offspring. Watch for their bull calves to sell in the annual production sale.

“The award was a big honor to our family,” said John. “It was pretty neat and Mom and Dad were really happy, that’s for sure.” With 40 years in the breed, the family has aspirations in continuing to raise Hereford cattle, serving the beef industry and breed by focusing on breeding cattle even better than the year before.

We are excited about this offering.... Missouri Opportunity Sale December 4, 2016 • Sedalia, MO

Besides selling cattle in their own production sale and consigning to the Missouri Opportunity Sale and, new this year, the Herefords of Native America Sale, the family also feeds some of their own cattle to sell meat in the local area. About 30 head of cattle per year are sold become FTF Natural Choice Hereford Beef. The family takes orders and sells freezer beef to many families a year, splitting carcasses to meet custom orders. Also, a few cattle are sold to two retail outlets in Washington, Missouri, after finished on the farm’s own corn-based grain with a protein supplement.

Show Your Customers You Appreciate Them

Do you remember going through the bank drive through and driving away with happy kids after receiving suckers? How many times have you received a new cap when you buy a tractor or piece of equipment? By nature, we all like anything free, but more importantly, when someone goes out of their way to thank you, statistically our customer loyalty will stay with that company. Creating a relationship with our customers is what makes the agricultural industry so different from the rest of the world. We are community-oriented and know each other by name. So how can we go about thanking our customers, letting them know we really do care? Continuing to build a stronger loyalty base can be somewhat challenging. Here are some recommendations.

1. Gift Cards

Putting a gift card in the mail or better yet delivering it in person for a local donut shop, pizza parlor or iTunes card would be a very nice


way to say thank you for purchasing a package of bred heifers this fall. Everyone likes free treats and if you put it in a card, they will likely keep it around for months to come.

2. Handmade Gifts

If the woman in your household loves to bake, can, craft or sew, this is where she will come in handy. During harvest, deliver a baked goods package to the farmer who purchases bulls from you each year. His belly will thank you! Prepare a small Christmas basket for the family who purchases a show heifer or steer from you each year.

3. Apparel and Business Branding

If you are afraid that lack of time is going to hold you up from getting your customers a special gift, have some items pre-made with your farm logo. Not only are they a nice thank you, but your customers become a walking billboard for your farm or ranch. Don’t just think caps, t-shirts, jackets, gloves–here are also koozies, flash drives, phone chargers, flashlights and much more!

Customer Appreciation | Nov 2016

Each time you come in contact with your customers, you are building on your previously relationship with them. Your greatest advertisement will always be those who have had success with your animals. So, it is vitally important to follow-up with your past customers after the sale to make sure they are still happy. Sometimes we are afraid to hear something bad or think no news is good news, but in the long run, you won’t be as successful with the later. Lastly, it is important to keep in contact with your customers all year long. We see so many social media pages gone wrong because businesses only want to sell, sell, sell. Selling should only be 25 percent or even less of your conversation with potential customers. With bull sale season approaching and the holiday season, we hope you will consider implementing some new ways to say thank you to your customers. They are the most crucial part of your success!

Offering our best to you on December 4, 2016!

Life is Simple We’ve all heard the expressions, “Well, bless his heart,” or “Bless her little heart,” and might have even felt a twinge of the ‘warm-fuzzies’ upon hearing it used. Depending on which part of the country you hear it proclaimed, it most definitely conveys a different message than that of evoking God’s blessing upon the intended recipient. I’m most familiar with its meaning, here in the Ozark Mountains, and have witnessed its use on three different occasions in the past month.

Jerry Crownover

For the past three years, our family has started a new Christmas tradition by meeting at a nice cabin in a very remote part of Northwest Arkansas for a weekend of carefree isolation. The rustic cabins are owned by individuals, but are managed for rent during the times the owners are away at their real homes. The manager, a very nice lady who happens to own several poultry houses and cattle in the area, is always a joy to deal with. Upon check-in this year, however, she said that she would have to follow us down to our cabin to make sure the new entrance gate was working properly and instruct us on its use. Two miles deeper into the already isolated wilderness, she stopped her vehicle at a magnificent entryway with huge stone-constructed pillars and a heavy metal gate that was operated by a mobile device that had to be programmed into a small computer, which then instructed a hydraulic cylinder to open and close the monstrous gate. The petite, chicken farmer stated, “The owner, bless her heart, is from California, and she thinks this gate will cut down on the trespassing and theft that occurs here from time to time.”

We know cattle. We know printing. 785-320-6890


As I looked, admiringly, at the gate and its stone pillars, I couldn’t help but notice that the structure was not attached to any fence and there was no fence that surrounded the property of the cabin. “Is the owner going to construct a fence as her next project?” I asked the manager.


“Oh, I don’t think so,” she replied. “She just wanted the gate to keep out unwanted visitors.” Envisioning that anyone who wanted to enter the property would only have to drive some twenty feet off the road to easily get around the gate and its pillars, I said, “Well, bless her heart.”


After spending a wonderful and relaxing weekend at the retreat, free from cell phone calls, emails, and farm chores, we loaded up the two vehicles and reluctantly headed back toward civilization, exiting one last time through that beautiful gate. Before we reached the paved road, however, we had to come to a stop, because the road was blocked by a pickup truck and stock trailer, which was angled completely across the one lane, dirt access, while an elderly couple was attempting to coax two bulls into the back of the trailer, using only a six-foot cattle panel and a bucket of feed.

Quietly, I got out of the car and slowly walked towards the farm couple. “Can I be of any help?” I politely offered. “Thanks, but we’ve just about got ‘em, and we’ll be out of your way in a few more minutes.” Sensing they thought I was some city-slicker who would probably foil their effort, I stated, “I’m a cattleman from up in Missouri, so I know how to handle livestock.” “Well, bless your heart, Son, but you may not know how we handle them down here.” Bless MY heart?

Missouri Hereford Field Day

Learning and Camaraderie for All Ages After a couple rainy days, the skies cleared for a beautiful, sunny day at Doss Hereford Farms for the 2016 Missouri Hereford Field Day. Approximately 70 breeders and Hereford enthusiasts showed up for the day’s events which started off with Glenn Klippenstein reflecting on how the breed and industry has changed from the 80s to present.

Herefords. After lunch they participated in a Skill-A-Thon organized by Scott and Tammy Adam.

Next, Dr. Jonathon Renfro of Renfro Veterinary Services discussed the Veterinary Feed Directive explaining how it will affect producers and steps they should take to prepare for the changes coming up next year.

After lunch, Glen Waters updated us on issues within the Missouri Beef Council.

This was followed up by Shane Bedwell, AHA Chief Operating Officer and Director of Breed Improvement, providing useful information on what’s new at the association. Samantha Graves from Trans Ova Genetics, Chillicothe, gave an excellent presentation on embryology and the different services they offer. Juniors had their own schedule for the day. A clipping & fitting demonstration was put on by Cory Wood of Civil Bend

At lunch, guests were treated to Certified Hereford Tri-Tip. The exquisite grilling was done by Joe Rickabaugh and the fixin’s were prepared by members of the Phillips/Renner family.

Next, district one breeders presented their display cattle. Breeders with cattle were Doss Hereford Farms, 4B Livestock, Thompson Herefords, Tri-L Polled Herefords, Waters Farms, and Phillips-Renner Farms. Gary Doss revealed the Preifert Cattle Cage Chute donated by Lathrop Feed & Grain, Lawson, to benefit the juniors. The juniors are selling raffle tickets on this great piece of equipment. Finally, producers engaged in a panel discussion with Net Worth Feeds & Feeding on backgrounding calves in Missouri and marketing opportunities. The panel consisted of Frank Barnitz, Shane Bedwell, Jack Ward, Jim Strump, & Tom Strain. All in all, it was a great day filled with information and conversation pertaining to our favorite subject, HEREFORDS. Thank you to all our sponsors, speakers, contributors, and our hosts, Gary & Debbie Doss for making this event possible!

Hosting Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years dinner can be fun but also overwhelming! Keep it FUN by taking recipes we’ve prepared and enjoyed with our family and friends. We hope you will make traditions of serving some of our favorites for years to come. We’ve got a few tips to help make dinner preparation go easier.

1. Prepare as much as you can before the big day! Cranberry sauce and desserts can easily be made a few days ahead of time. Potatoes and other side dishes can be assembled the day before (Yes, even potatoes. Follow The Pioneer Woman’s instructions on how to keep potatoes from turning brown.) and then baked a few hours before serving. 2. Prep as many ingredients as you can by chopping your pecans, dicing you vegetables, preparing your bread of choice for your stuffing, and brine your turkey. The day before your big feast should be busier than the day of, making your big dinner more enjoyable for the cook! 3. When you wake up to put your meat in the oven, get your table set. It’s easy to feel like you are falling apart at the last minute before dinner is served, so if you can get your table out of the way, it’s one less thing you have to worry about, so you can focus on the food. 4. Be sure to have someone in charge of serving drinks as your guests ar-

rive. If you are trying to host and cook, things can go from good to bad! (I know some of you are laughing now recalling the most recent thing you burnt while trying to multitask!)

5. Layout your serving dishes while things are in the oven. And have your

aluminum foil and hot pads out before items start coming out of the oven.

6. Once your meat is done cooking, pull it out of the oven, tent it with aluminum foil and let is rest to keep all the juices inside. This is the perfect time to get all your sides on the table. We’ve picked out our favorite recipes to take the guess work out of holiday meals. Our hope is that these will become traditions in your household as they have in ours.


Best for last? We don’t think so! Wow your guests with yummy desserts. Need to thank a special neighbor or customer? These recipes are sure to work! •Fudge Our personal favorites are chocolate, egg nog and Bailey’s Irish cream and coffee •Holly Jolly Christmas Bark The Ranch House Kitchen’s fun and festive sweet and salty goodness! •Caramel Apple Pie By our personal favorite chef The Pioneer Woman, we make it extra special by replacing half of the apples with pears. 34

The Sides Keep your plate colorful with bold side colors. There are some great vegetable recipes that can be used all year long also! •Corn Casserole A special treat you can always find at Grandma’s. Make it extra special by adding some mozzarella cheese on top with 5 minutes left to bake. •Whipped Potatoes and Carrots Want to keep things colorful? Try adding some carrots to your favorite mashed potatoes. •Cranberry Sauce If you are having turkey, this is a must. You will never buy it in the can again! •Stuffing There are so many ways to make stuffing from scratch. Apricots, mushrooms, apples, sausage, sage, pecans, cranberries, cornbread and even quinoa are just a few treats to add to this holiday favorite. •Baked Beans Keep beef on the menu no matter what you serve! This extra rich dish with bacon is sure to be loved by everyone. Add a little honey or molasses for extra specialness! •Sweet Potato Casserole It’s like candy, and good for you…we think! You won’t do sweet potatoes any other way after you’ve tried this casserole. •Brussel Spouts Yuck! No...wait until you try these! The perfect side if you are serving beef. With cranberries, gorgonzola cheese, pecans, maple syrup and basic vinegar, even the picky eaters should like this. Bread With all the delicious gravy and juice left on your plate, bread is a must to finish off a holiday meal. •Sour Dough Rolls Served hot like Grandma always did. Get going on your starter a few weeks before Christmas, and make cinnamon rolls around the holidays for an extra special gift! •Focaccia The perfect taste of rosemary to finish off any holiday meal. Meat–the center of attention Whether you go with beef or turkey, your guests will love either of these recipes. •Fillet with Gorgonzola Sauce This creamy sauce is to die for!! Beef is great as a stand alone, but this sauce will make for an extra special treat. •Turkey This one will always be moist and your guests will rave about the flavor! The key–brine your turkey just like The Pioneer Woman does! The apple, rosemary, peppercorn and orange flavors are perfect. Be sure to visit our Rural Route Creations Pinterest Holiday Dinners board at to find our complete favorite recipes! From Rural Route Creations, have a very happy holidays, and we hope your tummies stay full!

The Opportunity is here.... These cattle sell in the Missouri Opportunity Sale December 4, 2016 • Sedalia, MO

Doss Deedra Ann DHZ28 ET (P43324102)

September 5, 2012 — sells with heifer calf This Boyd Worldwide female is doing a number both on paper and visually with her heifer calf by R Vision 5722. Worldwide females work around the country and this four year old cow is no exception. We like the heifer calf so well that this female will be AI’D back to R Vision 5722 on November 23, 2016. 16 of the 17 bars on R Vision 5722’s epd chart are to the right---not many bulls can put that on paper. Buy this pair—the heifer calf will pay the freight on this lot.

Doss 50U Leeza DHB 38 (P43525652)

September 9, 2015 — sells with bull calf Set your satchel down if you want to talk about maternal genetics in a young two year old—Loewen Uptown x Boyd Worldwide female. This pedigree locks down maternal traits about as well as any— take a look at this young female’s udder. Her goggle eyed bull calf at side is by the walking sire at Doss Hereford Farms—10Y x Revolution—are we stacking genetics here or what. This female will be AI’d on November 23, 2016 to Action a highlight bull in the 2016 Mile High Night National Hereford Sale in Denver. The only way to get Action genetics is to buy progeny—the semen is not for sale. Genetics are stacked deep in this offering.

DOSS 4R SWEET LASSIE DHD8 (P43700142) January 24, 2016

Not many Revolution females leave our herd—this one should not. This heifer is in the top 10% for CED, WW, YW, Carcass Weight, REA, Marbling, BMI Index and CHB Index. Talk about a performance spread-- BW 1.8 to YW of 104. Take a look at her EPD chart. Once you have studied the paper on this heifer then get serious and look at her phenotype. She brings the look and numbers together. Not much left to do except--invest in her and then mate her to another paper tiger.

Growing a Lasting Legacy Barber Ranch, Channing, Texas, has graciously donated BR Kate Rielle 5532 ET to sell as Lot 1, the foundation female, Jan. 13, 2017, during the Mile High Night Sale at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver. All proceeds will benefit the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and the “Growing a Lasting Legacy” campaign, supporting leadership and education for the next generation of Hereford youth. The Barber family is in their fifth generation of ranching in the Texas Panhandle. “We are proud to be donating this year’s foundation female,” says Terri Barber of Barber Ranch. “Kate Rielle is an August born heifer out of our Gabrielle foundation female and out of the acclaimed Hometown bull, so she’s the best of both genetics that we’ve ever offered and we’re very proud to be supporting the Hereford Youth Foundation of America by donating her.” Kate Rielle is an Aug. 5, 2015, daughter of NJW 73S W18 Hometown 10Y ET.

Kate Rielle’s dam BR Gabrielle 5082 is a two-time NWSS champion female plus supreme champion Hereford and dam of NWSS champion Currency; she is also the granddam of the famed Denver champion Anastasia and her full brother Aventus which was selected 2016 NWSS supreme champion Hereford. The sire of Kate Rielle, Hometown 10Y, was a NWSS grand champion.

The Lot 1 female will be selling for half interest and no possession, and Barber Ranch will also pay show expenses.

49th Annual

Missouri Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show January 6-8, 2017 - Tan-Tar-A Resort

“We feel like there is no better way to support the next generation than with a female that can generate the type of attention and potential money that this heifer can bring for the foundation and help them reach the goal their striving to achieve,” Barber says.
