Who Are You? Defining Your Brand Equity The “core value” of your operation, and of yourself, is said to be defined in 5-8 words. These words describe what you do; give you a clear identity, a clear path. Coming up with these words is not always easy and really takes a team effort to distinguish. Let your customers and potential customers use these words when they think of your operation, when they see your brand. What is your description?*

Looking to the spring... NY Angus Association has many venues to bring our membership together, as well as provide a marketing platform. This spring, we are very lucky to have Richard Beaven coming to speak at our Annual Meeting on MARCH 30 in East Syracuse (see info in this issue). He has a diverse background and his insight as to how we tell “our story” and what comprises that, promises to be a favorite. Don’t forget about our special issue of the newsletter this April; be a part of it. Highlights will include the NY Angus Sale to be held on May 11 in western NY. I look forward to seeing everyone in the travels! Thanks,

Mike

Spotlight on a NY Angus Member... The Duncan’s Shale Ridge Farm - Otego, New York

Our story is not a typical one by any means. The Duncan family consists of

Dave, Kathy and their children Trevor and Jocelyn. Dave works for the natural gas industry, which keeps him out of state most of the time. Kathy grew up building houses with her father, who is a general contractor in the area. Needless to say in the spring of 2008 it was quite a shock when Dave brought home an orphan heifer calf and told Kathy, “I’ve got a project for you and Jocelyn”! The calf was bottle-fed, halter broke and hauled to the county fair where they had no idea how to show a beef


animal. Luckily the girls met very nice people that offered their help and knowledge. It was quite obvious that Kathy and Jocelyn enjoyed showing and taking care of the cows, so Dave continued buying more. Kathy spent countless hours on the internet and talking to people learning how to take care of cows, since she had never owned a cow in her life or even worked at a farm. More land was purchased, fences and barns were built, and tractors and hay equipment accumulated. Since the internet doesn’t teach you how to put up hay, Kathy got a crash, hands on course in that as well. Trevor did not feel comfortable in the show ring, but enjoys helping Kathy mow and bale hay. In 2009, the mother and daughter team went back to the county fair with 3 heifers and won Supreme Champion Female with the first calf ever born on the farm. Since then a whole lot of ribbons, trophies and banners have accumulated including Grand Champion Angus Bull at the New York State Fair and Eastern States Exposition in 2012. Also a whole lot of miles have accumulated going to several cattle shows east of the Mississippi. The “project” Dave brought home has turned into passion. The animals have maxed out the pastureland with 30 head of cattle along with 10 quarter horses. Shale Ridge Farm is a small Angus breeder, but strives to have quality cattle that are also very docile. Feel free to contact Kathy if ever in the area and would like to visit the farm. 607-434-0072, kathy@shaleridgefarm.com

Richard Beaven Richard Beaven, a British photographer, has been a student of geography, communications and advertising, in which he built a successful career, he subsequently changed direction to documentary and editorial photography. Richard lives with his wife, Mimi, their two daughters and a flock of chickens in the Hudson Valley of New York. Currently, Richard is working on longer-term, self-assigned projects and a book documenting family owned and operated Angus cattle operations across the USA. Additionally, for the past few months Richard has been advising the Angus Journal, part of the American Angus Association, on strategy for the coming years.

Richard Beaven - Storytelling in the Digital Era There has never been a more innovative, dynamic time in the media world. Those who receive content are now in control of how that happens. For the business owner this presents a new challenge to understand how and where customers want to interact with you. Knowing your customer and their needs is crucial. Now, with too much choice in the media landscape for most consumers and a significant amount of clutter, engaging stories are an important and effective way to reach and influence people. Regardless of the size of your business or its activities knowing your story and telling it well is one of the most important marketing tools.

New York Ass’n, First of all I would like to give everyone a big “Hello from St. Joe”! My year thus far as a new part of the Angus team has been a wild ride that has led me to many new friends and great people not only in my territory, but across the nation. My maiden voyage into the state of New York was a great success as we were able to have two meetings, one in Ghent and the other in Macedon, in which Phil Trowbridge and Steve Packard were a very integral part in organizing. These meetings allowed me to start off my new venture with great success and allowed me the opportunity to make some excellent contacts. Furthermore, my New York experience, as I have told many of you, has opened my eyes to the fact that New York isn’t all Wall Street and three piece suits, but is a place with a large agricultural base and some “Fine” Angus cattle. There is much opportunity to be taken hold of in your state from the perspective of Angus as well as the commercial cattle market. While, the market becomes somewhat different in this area, the business mind of a savvy Angus producer may surpass all obstacles This new year of 2013 has taken off with a very positive start as PA Farm show, NWSS, and VT Farm show have all gone great! This big notations from an AAA point of view that have taken place early this year are that the genetic tests from Pfizer and Igenity have both modified their pricing to try to meet breeders economic needs. The new found affordability of these tests could help all of us as breeders to make rapid advancements in our genetic bases while also utilizing these tests for a superior marketing strategy. The next large topic of discussion from early 2013 has been 2 major updates of association Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs). The first change was recalibration of the HD50K test, which resulted in increased correlations between the genomic trait test and actual phenotypic measure in the association database. Another component of this update was to place new assumptions into the $ value indexes, this specifically means that we have updated the industry market values placed on fed cattle, growth, beef, etc. All of this being said I wish to encourage you as breeders to utilize the association to the max by utilizing all association programs that could help benefit your individual operations. We have the AIMS program which is an excellent program for record keeping. Maternal plus is an up and coming program that utilizes whole herd reporting to initiate the discovery of new fertility measures from a breed entirety, but also may be utilized as an individual to help you become more efficient from a reproductive and fertility standpoint. The Angus Source program is another program that offers Angus breeders and commercial breeders using Angus genetics an alternative marketing strategy for your calves. I do hope you all have an excellent meeting on March 30 however I do regret to inform you that I will not be able to attend as I will be with family observing the Easter holiday. However, Phil Trowbridge, the new national president of the association, will be there representing the AAA. If you need anything feel free to contact me. Sincerely, William M. Mayfield Regional Manager, Region 7

Top Eight Junior Livestock Champions go for $278,500 Denver, Colo. The top eight champion animals total sales exceeded last year’s total by $4,500. The highest bids went to the Grand Champion Steer, which sold for $100,000 and the Grand Champion Hog, which sold for $47,500, nearly doubling last year’s bid. The money invested supports the youth that raised the animal as they plan for their future needs for their college educations. In addition, a portion of the proceeds support the National Western Scholarship Trust, which funds scholarships in agriculture and rural medicine at colleges throughout Colorado and Wyoming. Last year, 74 students received funds to aid their education. The top eight Jr. Livestock animals were auctioned off live on 9News at 6:30pm.

GE-EPDs powered by HD 50K

Low-density genomic tests

One genomic test outshines the rest.

When predicting the genetic merit of young Black Angus cattle, you need all the information you can get. Rely on genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs) powered by High-Density 50K (HD 50K) for Black Angus. With more than 54,000 DNA markers and the added feature of parentage verification, no other test delivers more dependable predictions than HD 50K. This information enables you to evaluate economically important traits that are often time-consuming, expensive and difficult to measure. The result? Faster genetic progress and fewer breeding mistakes.

American Angus AssociationŽ Winter 2013 EPD Update Three important changes reflected in the EPD update include: 1) Recalibration of Pfizer HD50K 2) Revised genomic correlations 3) Updated economic assumptions for $Value Indexes Recalibration The American Angus Association has made enhancements to its genetic prediction tools following an extensive genomic recalibration project in collaboration with Pfizer Animal Genetics. Angus breeders will notice updates to expected progeny differences (EPDs) impacted by Pfizer HD50K tested animals. Pfizer’s HD50K test was recalibrated on a larger number of animals than the original test. In the era of high density genomic tests being widely used across the American Angus Association population, periodic recalibration is necessary and will become more frequent (for example, currently the dairy industry recalibrates monthly). Every animal that had a Pfizer HD50K went through the recalibration process. Animals with a 1-100 Pfizer rank prior to recalibration will have no changes to these values. In other words, the Pfizer percentile ranks are static. Pfizer ADG rank is no longer displayed on any animals. Revised Genomic Correlations Correlations between Pfizer HD50K genomic values and AAA phenotypes tended to go up for most traits, particularly calving ease. An increase in the genetic correlations indicates that more genetic variation is being explained by the HD50K for the trait. Also, genetic correlations were re-estimated for the IG384. The correlations show some decline, because the training animals are further distanced from the current population. What does this mean for EPDs? Little change in EPDs from the recalibration update occurred in high accuracy sires. A few larger EPD changers will be noticed for lower accuracy animals and non-parents (although on average, EPD changes for these animals were also small). $Value Update The economic assumptions are updated periodically based on a three-year rolling average to be more representative of current industry trends. Assumption updates impacted Weaned Calf Value ($W), Cow Energy Value ($EN), and Beef Value ($B) with its related indexes. Changes in $W were representative of higher calf prices along with increases in feed energy costs. These two factors tended to offset each other. For $B, changes were a result of premiums or discounts for quality as well as similar attributes for red meat yield components. The changes in revenue also tended to offset increased ration costs.

THE VIEW THIS MONTH IS ACTUALLY FROM MY SHOP NOT FROM THE TRACTOR SEAT OF ONE OF MY OLD GREEN TRACTORS BEING IT IS JAN. IN WESTERN N.Y. THE VIEW FROM THE TRACTOR SEAT THE LAST FEW DAYS HAS BEEN PLAIN WHITE SNOW WHITE THAT IS. I WOULD LIKE TO ASK EVERYONE WHO IS READING THIS TO THINK ABOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF BEING A BEAR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR . IF IT WAS POSSIBLE IT WOULD HELP ME REACH SOME OF THE PERSONAL GOALS I HAVE SET FOR MYSELF IN 2013. JUST TO NAME A FEW OF MY GOALS IF I WENT TO SLEEP IN JANUARY AND WOKE UP IN APRIL . I CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE LOST THE 20 LB. MY DOCTOR IS AFTER ME TO LOOSE. I WOULD NOT HAVE HAD TO KEEP PLOWING THE SNOW OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY . I WOULD NOT HAVE AN EXCUSE FOR MY WIFE I AM TO TIRED TO GO TO THE SHOW. BY APRIL THE MUD IS ALL GONE IN THE BARN YARD THE SPRING FLOWERS ARE JUST STARTING THE BIRDS ARE STARTING TO COME BACK FOR SPRING AND WE HAVE THE CHALLENGE OF TRYING TO FARM ALL OVER AGAIN WELL I JUST WOKE UP THE DREAM IS OVER . I GUESS I WILL GO ON A DIET AND TAKE A NAP SAT AFTERNOON GO TO THE SHOW SAT NIGHT AND PLOW THE DRIVEWAY. MAYBE I WILL HAVE TIME TO HAVE ANOTHER DREAM. THANKS FOR READEN PAUL P.S.

Keeping livestock healthy in extremely cold weather When the weather turns extremely frigid new livestock owners often worry about their animals, whether they are horses, cattle, pigs, sheep or goats. Some forms of livestock can survive winter better than others but extra care for all your livestock in the bitterest weather will insure that all make it through in good condition. Winter weather varies from region to region but any weather that is much colder than normal for your area, especially if it includes some form of precipitation, is a good reason to pay extra attention to your livestock. Temperatures below 40 with rain or any temperatures below or near zero are generally cause for extra concern. A little attention will ensure that every animal has the best chance for survival. Very young and older animals are at the most risk from extreme cold. Hogs and goats will need the most protection and care as their coats don’t protect them as well from the cold as other livestock. Dairy cattle who are fresh (have milk) are also vulnerable. Horses, sheep and beef cattle that have grown a normal winter coat are the least likely


to be severely affected. However all animals benefit from some extra attention in frigid weather.

Extra feed Animals have two defenses from cold, a layer of fat and a good winter coat. Going into fall animals should be allowed to put on a little weight, especially if winters are often severe in your area. Animals need extra feed in very cold weather just to keep warm; burning calories helps the animal stay warm. Wading through deep snow takes extra energy, as does shivering, which is a way to raise body temperature. Many people believe that grain products should be increased to keep animals warm but that is not totally true. An increase in the amount of good hay fed and a small increase in any grain or protein feed is the best way to add warmth through feed digestion. If at all possible livestock should have unlimited access to good hay during the coldest weather. Remember that too much grain, even in the winter, can cause serious problems for most animals. It is especially important to pay special attention to animals low in the herd rank, shy or picked on animals to make sure they are able to get the extra feed they need. These animals will be the first to be affected by the winter weather. Older animals who may have trouble increasing their hay intake should have a senior type ration fed to them that includes processed hay for roughage. In some cases fat, like corn oil, may need to be added to the ration to keep weight up. Consult with a vet if your animal is losing weight despite increased hay feeding.

Water Although animals will eat snow for moisture it isn't the best way to provide them with water. It causes them to burn more calories to offset digesting the cold snow and some animals won’t eat enough snow to keep well hydrated. Without adequate water animals won’t eat as well and will lose weight and condition. Animals without access to snow will of course need water. If you do not have heated stock tanks or buckets- and there are all kinds of products on the market to heat drinking water for livestock- you must provide water at least once a day and preferably twice a day. Make sure you provide enough so that all animals can drink their fill. Most livestock enjoy lukewarm water in the winter and it may increase their water consumption if it’s warm.

Shelter In most areas of the country laws don’t exist that make shelter mandatory for livestock, including horses, but the conscientious owner realizes that some shelter will keep both his livestock and his bottom line healthy. Animals that get wet lose all the benefit of their insulating winter coat. A cold rain does more harm in 40 degree weather than sunny 20 degree weather. Wind drastically increases the chilling factor of weather as we all know.


Animals that are kept dry and protected from the wind will need less feed, and will not be as likely to suffer from frostbite or illness caused from the cold. They will stay in better condition. This will lower your feed and vet bills in the long run. At the very least all animals should have access to a three sided shelter with the open side facing away from the prevailing wind. This will keep them dry and reduce wind chill values. If you have many animals two smaller shelters may make more sense than a large one. Make sure that some animals aren't being kept out of the shelter by more dominant animals. Animals will move to the shelters when they are uncomfortable. Hogs and goats generally need enclosed shelters with dry bedding to stay comfortable. Domestic hogs do not grow much of a winter coat and most goats don’t fare well without good shelters in winter. Dairy animals may suffer frostbite and chaffing to their udders if they are left out in weather below freezing. Newborn animals are also subject to frostbite or may even freeze to death if left outside. Indoor shelters don’t generally need to be heated. Ventilation must remain good and bedding dry or the moisture and ammonia that build up will cause serious problems. A heat lamp can be used with very young or ill animals in extreme weather, warming a small area. Owners sometimes use blankets on horses or other animals and these will provide some protection from cold weather. Make sure the animals blanket stays dry. Wet blankets should be removed and the animal brought to a dry location. Blankets should be removed frequently to check for skin problems underneath. Animals with blankets also need to be where they can be monitored to see that they aren’t tangled up and unable to move freely or caught on something. If horses will be used until they sweat in cold weather they should be dried off before being left in the cold or before a blanket is put back on them. Blankets should be used on horses that will be tied or confined to an area where they can’t move much or get out of the wind. Horses that have their hair clipped for showing or riding should also be blanketed before they are turned out and may even need blankets in the stall when it’s very cold.

Be prepared The livestock owner should monitor the weather and move his or her animals to a location where they can be cared for should heavy snow or icing be expected. Because these weather conditions may make power go out a plan for storing water and delivering it to animals should be worked out in advance. Make sure you have sufficient feed available for the storm duration and a way to get it to the animals. Animal owners should also check their animals frequently in bad weather looking for signs that they are suffering or about to give birth and have a location prepared so that they can move an ill, injured or birthing animal into it for protection. www.examiner.com

Cattlemen’s Beef Board 11/29/12

Conversations about how beef is raised are happening in our local and virtual communities, and farmers and ranchers need to be engaged.

Conversations with E.A.S.E. Engage — The first step is engaging the consumer. This could be an everyday encounter with a neighbor or a conversation on Facebook or Twitter. The key is having an attitude of openness, inviting questions and listening to concerns. Acknowledge — Acknowledge that consumers have questions and concerns. By inviting questions and listening to concerns, you are establishing a connection. Look for areas of common ground to build upon. Don't focus on differences. Share — Once you have acknowledged questions and concerns, ask for permission to share your viewpoint. Earn Trust — The goal of the conversation is to earn trust. It's not about winning an argument or proving you are right. It is important to correct misinformation but don't refute with facts alone; food is very emotional. Remember, if you don't trust someone, you don't trust their facts.

Helping you have the conversation The checkoff is excited to announce a new booklet, titled "Your Guide To Having the Beef Conversation," which moves toward a better understanding of how to have effective conversations about key issues for the beef community. This booklet is the go-to conversation aid for anyone interested in becoming actively engaged in the beef conversations. "Having the Beef Conversation" follows the framework set forth in the Cattlemen's Stewardship Review and features sections about the Beef Lifecycle, Good Food, Healthy Animals, Healthy Environment, Strong Communities and the Beef Checkoff. Each section includes the latest talking points, updated facts to share and a tough question and answer section, not to mention a reference page with additional websites for more information. An important part of engaging in the conversation about how beef is grown and raised is sharing your personal story. Your story consists of all the everyday things that make you so passionate about raising cattle and providing delicious beef to consumers. So, join the conversation today! For more information about your beef checkoff investment, visit MyBeefCheckoff.com.
