@CanMShorthorn CMSS Improver 2020


President’s Report by John Eccles, CMSS President Greetings on behalf of your CMSS Board of Directors. I hope this finds you all safe and healthy. The past few years have seen many changes in our Canadian dairy industry. Our government gives away more and more market share while requiring increasing oversight in the way we run our farms. We see our markets eroded by meat and dairy “alternatives.” Expenses go up and income per unit goes down or flattens. Still, the dairy farmer trudges on. Then comes COVID-19, when staying at home isn’t just our way of life, it is a civic duty. When I think of my time thus far as a member of the CMSS, I think of how this breed represents much of how we strive to be ourselves. We want to have longevity and durability. We want to be productive and efficient and we want to be easy to get along with (good temperament). I believe Walter Goudy said it best when he said of his CMSS friends that “good people keep good cows.” I always look forward to attending our AGM and Field Day and National Show to meet and get to know or catch up with all of you “good people.” This year our AGM will be held remotely by video conference. Hopefully we will get to connect with many of you then and face to face again in 2021. I believe that this year represents a few milestones for the CMSS. This marks 10 years as a distinct breed association, 20 years with a separate herd book and more than 100 years as a Society! I would like to commend all of you who are improving and promoting the breed through whatever way you can. The CMSS has been a society that regularly punches above its weight class in promotion. Right now, more than ever, the Milking Shorthorn has a place in the dairy herds of Canada. So let’s keep improving and promoting how good it is to own the Red, White and Roan!

Secretary-Manager Report 2020 by Ryan Barrett Working on Milking Shorthorn business from my home office is normal for me, but little did I know that my home office would become my full-time office for seven weeks now (as of May 1st). Most of those reading this message “work from home” every day on the farm, so it’s nothing new for you! Even two months ago, I doubt any of us thought we’d be looking at long-term shut down of businesses and schools, massive challenges to our food supply chains, and severe restrictions to travel, both domestically and internationally. I don’t need to go on about the challenges that our families and our industry face because you see that everyday on the news and on Facebook. What I will share with you is that you are a key link in our nation’s food supply. You are essential. Hopefully science will catch up with the pandemic and we will have treatments and vaccines available soon and that this time will be in the rear-view mirror before long. However, I’m sure that there will be long-term effects of COVID-19 which will transform many parts of daily life and the agriculture industry. It’s probably a bit early to predict what all of those changes will look like, but I’m certain that we won’t return to the “status quo”…and in some ways, that might be a good thing. Now that the public has a better recognition of how essential many jobs are (including in food production), hopefully that will be a positive for agriculture. In terms of the running of the Society, we are continuing to make sure that we are meeting the needs of Milking Shorthorn breeders across Canada. I continue to get calls from first time buyers or producers interested in registering crossbred animals. During the “lockdown,” a number of breeders have taken the opportunity to get caught up on registrations. Work is progressing on a number of projects, including improving sire availability, genomic testing, and making quality animals available for new breeders. While we won’t be having a Field Day this summer, we will be having an Annual Meeting by videoconference this summer to make sure that members are up-to-date on the Society’s activities. 6

At the time that I’m writing this, we’re still awaiting a final decision on whether Lindsay Exhibition will be cancelled, which will also cancel our National Show; however, I’m expecting it to be cancelled for this year. The CMSS and Lindsay Exhibition have already started discussions on what a “virtual show” may look like…stay tuned for more details. On the positive side, average milk production for the breed jumped considerably in 2019. We’ve never had more cows complete 305 day records over 10,000 kgs. Average fat production has also increased significantly in recent years, adding profitability to our breed. We continue to have new members and new first-time buyers coming to the breed. We’ve seen a significant increase in Milking Shorthorns in Quebec. All of these are very positive for the breed and give me room for optimism moving forward. I know that purebred sales have struggled in recent months. An oversupply of dairy cattle in Canada has been made even worse by COVID19. However, our breed is built for tough times. Milking Shorthorns are efficient, low-cost milk producers that breed back quickly, have fewer veterinary costs, and last for more lactations. In a world of tighter margins, low-maintenance, cost-efficient cows have an advantage. As always, I am hear to help. Feel free to call or email me if you have questions about CMSS services and programs or just want to talk Shorthorns. My best wishes to you and your families at this uncertain time, and I hope that you all have a successful growing season.

Rapport du secrétaire 2020 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL Il est normal pour moi de travailler pour les Shorthorn Laitier depuis mon bureau à domicile, mais je ne savais pas que mon bureau à domicile deviendrait mon bureau à temps plein depuis sept semaines maintenant (en date du 1er mai). La plupart d’entre vous qui lisez ce message « travaillez à domicile » tous les jours à la ferme, ce n’est donc pas nouveau pour vous! Il y a seulement deux mois, je doute qu’aucun d’entre nous n’ait pensé à la fermeture à long terme d’entreprises et d’écoles, aux défis énormes posés à nos chaînes d’approvisionnement alimentaire et aux sévères restrictions imposées aux déplacements, tant au Canada qu’à l’étranger. CMSS Improver 2020

Je n’ai pas besoin de parler des difficultés auxquelles nos familles et notre industrie sont confrontées, car vous le voyez tous les jours aux nouvelles et sur Facebook. Ce que je veux vous dire, c’est que vous êtes un lien clé de l’approvisionnement alimentaire de notre pays. Vous êtes essentiels. J’espère que la science rattrapera la pandémie et que nous aurons bientôt des traitements et des vaccins pour pouvoir mettre tout ceci derrière nous. Mais je suis sûr que la COVID-19 aura des effets à long terme qui vont transformer de nombreux aspects de la vie quotidienne et de l’industrie agricole. Il est probablement un peu tôt pour prédire à quoi tous ces changements vont ressembler, mais je suis certain que nous ne reviendrons pas au « statu quo »... ce qui, d’une certaine manière, pourrait être une bonne chose. Maintenant que le public se rend mieux compte à quel point de nombreux emplois sont essentiels (y compris dans la production alimentaire), espérons que cela sera positif pour l’agriculture. Pour ce qui concerne le fonctionnement de la Société, nous continuons à nous assurer que nous répondons aux besoins des éleveurs de Shorthorn Laitier à travers tout le pays. Je continue de recevoir des appels de nouveaux acheteurs ou de producteurs qui sont intéressés par l’enregistrement d’animaux croisés. Un certain nombre d’éleveurs ont profité du « confinement » pour se mettre à jour dans leurs enregistrements. Nous faisons des progrès sur un certain nombre de projets, notamment l’amélioration de la disponibilité des taureaux, le testage génomique et la mise à disposition d’animaux de qualité pour les nouveaux éleveurs. Même si nous n’aurons pas de journée à la ferme cet été, nous allons organiser l’assemblée annuelle par vidéoconférence pour nous assurer que les membres sont à jour sur les activités de la Société. Au moment où j’écris ce rapport, nous attendons toujours une décision finale sur l’annulation, ou non, de l’exposition de Lindsay, ce qui viendrait également annuler notre exposition nationale; je pense qu’elle sera annulée pour cette année. La Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier et l’expo de Lindsay ont déjà entamé des discussions sur ce à quoi pourrait ressembler une « exposition virtuelle »... restez à l’écoute pour en savoir plus. Du côté positif, la production laitière moyenne de la race a considérablement augmenté en 2019. Nous n’avons jamais eu autant de vaches qui ont battu des records de plus de 10 000 kg à 305 jours. La production moyenne de matière grasse a également augmenté de manière 8

CMSS Improver 2020


significative ces dernières années, augmentant ainsi la rentabilité de notre race. Nous continuons à avoir de nouveaux membres et de nouveaux acheteurs. Nous avons constaté une augmentation importante des Shorthorn Laitier au Québec. Tout ceci est très positif pour la race et me permet d’envisager l’avenir avec optimisme. Je sais que les ventes d’animaux de race pure ont été difficiles ces derniers mois. L’offre excédentaire de bovins laitiers au Canada a été aggravée par la COVID-19. Mais notre race est faite pour les temps difficiles. Les Shorthorn Laitier sont des productrices de lait efficaces et peu coûteuses qui ont un taux de reproduction rapide, qui génèrent moins de frais vétérinaires et qui durent plus longtemps. Dans un monde où les marges sont plus serrées, les vaches à faible entretien et à faible coût ont un avantage. Comme toujours, je suis là pour vous aider. N’hésitez pas à me contacter par téléphone ou par courriel si vous avez des questions sur les services et les programmes de la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier ou si vous voulez simplement parler des Shorthorn Laitier. Mes meilleurs vœux à vous et à vos familles en ces temps incertains, et j’espère que vous aurez tous une belle saison des cultures.

Rapport du Président par John Eccles, Président de la SCSL Salutations au nom de votre conseil de la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier. J’espère que vous êtes tous en sécurité et en bonne santé. Ces dernières années, notre industrie laitière canadienne a connu de nombreux changements. Notre gouvernement concède de plus en plus de parts de marché tout en exigeant une surveillance accrue de la gestion de nos fermes. Nos marchés diminuent au profit des « alternatives » à la viande et aux produits laitiers. Les dépenses augmentent et le revenu par unité diminue ou atteint un plateau. Pourtant, les producteurs laitiers continuent d’avancer. Puis il y a eu la COVID-19, où rester à la maison n’est pas seulement un mode de vie, c’est un devoir civique. Quand je repense au temps que j’ai passé comme membre de la Société, pour moi cette race représente une grande partie de ce que nous essayons d’être. Nous recherchons la longévité et la durabilité. Nous voulons être productifs et efficaces et nous voulons être faciles à vivre (avoir un bon tempérament). Je pense que Walter Goudy a bien décrit ses amis de la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier en disant que « les bonnes personnes gardent de bonnes vaches ». J’ai toujours hâte d’assister à notre AGA, à notre journée à la ferme et à notre exposition nationale pour vous rencontrer et apprendre à vous connaître ou à prendre de vos nouvelles, vous qui êtes les « bonnes personnes ». Cette année, notre AGA aura lieu par vidéoconférence. Nous espérons pouvoir vous retrouver en face à face en 2021. Cette année, la Société a franchi quelques jalons : 10 ans d’existence en tant qu’association de race, 20 ans avec un livre généalogique distinct et plus de 100 ans comme Société! J’aimerais féliciter toutes celles et tous ceux qui améliorent et qui font la promotion de la race par tous les moyens possibles. Notre Société dépasse régulièrement sa catégorie de poids en matière de promotion de la race. Aujourd’hui plus que jamais, la Shorthorn Laitier a sa place dans les troupeaux laitiers du Canada. Continuons donc à améliorer et à promouvoir la qualité de la race Rouge, Blanc et Rouan! 14

A Century of Milking Shorthorns in Canada by Ryan Barrett, Secretary-Manager, CMSS A recent conversation with our Society president, John Eccles, prompted me to take a look back at the history of the Milking Shorthorn breed in Canada. Many of our members are new to the breed and may not be familiar with the progression of our breed over the years. Unfortunately, my research uncovered that we missed an opportunity to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our Society last year! In 1919, Dual Purpose Shorthorn breeders from across Canada got together in Guelph, Ontario to establish the Dual Purpose Shorthorn Club of Canada. This club was formed within the Dominion Shorthorn Breeders’ Association (later to become the Canadian Shorthorn Association) and would eventually become the Canadian Dual Purpose Shorthorn Society. In 1990, reflecting the changing identity of the breed, the name of the breed and society was changed to the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society. Dairy-type Shorthorns have been part of the Shorthorn breed since its founding in England in the late 18th century. Thomas Bates of Kirklevington is regarded as the father of Dairy or Milking Shorthorns, pioneering his “double purpose” cattle. Shorthorns with these Bates genetics were exported around the world in the 1800’s, including numerous provinces in Canada. Shortly before the First World War, interest started to grow in Dual Purpose Shorthorns in Canada, leading to Shorthorns beginning ROP testing in 1913 and the founding of the Dual Purpose Club in 1919, followed by a number of Dual Purpose-specific shows being founded at many of the country’s largest livestock exhibitions. An early pioneer of Dual Purpose Shorthorns in Canada was the Bingeman Family of Waterloo, Ontario, still a well-known name in that area to this day. Jonas Bingeman has some of the first record-holders for production in the breed before selling his herd to Purdue University. A centre for excellence for the breed in the early years was the Caledonia area of southwestern Ontario, near Brantford. Multiple Dual Purpose herds flourished in this area for decades, and a number of Canadian cow families today still trace to these herds, including the Bessie Joe and Betty families to name two. An early proponent of Shorthorns in this area was the Hon. George Brown, Father of Confedera18

tion and founder of the Toronto Globe newspaper. Perhaps it was this legacy that led to Dual Purpose Shorthorns being prolific and successful in the Caledonia/Brantford area for many years. Names like Martindale, Gibson, Brown, Cockshutt (of tractor fame), Smith, Peart, Creighton and Atkinson were pioneers and leaders in the breed in this area for the first half of the 20th century. They generally prioritized cattle that could provide substantial milk yield with improved udders, often importing breeding stock from England and the United States to improve their herds. Over time, top herds would become established in other parts of Ontario and other provinces. The Neralcam herd in Quebec imported top genetics from the United Kingdom for many years and had an impact on a number of top US herds. Herds in the Ottawa Valley of Ontario and in Prince Edward Island took home top honours at National Shows as well as production records over many years. While Milking Shorthorns have historically been more numerous in Eastern Canada, numbers in Western Canada have grown in recent years. While the Milking and Beef segments of the Shorthorn breed diverged in the United States in 1949, Canadian Milking Shorthorns

continued to be a distinct part of the larger Shorthorn herd book until 2000, when Milking Shorthorns were formally separated from Beef Shorthorns in the herd book with no further reciprocal registration rights. The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society was then formally separated from the Canadian Shorthorn Association in 2010, becoming its own independent breed association from that time on. Therefore, 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the breed becoming known as Milking Shorthorns, the 20th anniversary of a distinct herd book, and the 10th anniversary of the CMSS as an independent breed association! Our breed has definitely come a long way. In the first year of the printing of The Improver in 1978, the highest milk record was Foxdale Fairy Mamie 2, owned by Joe Sullivan of Peterborough, ON, producing 7576 kgs of milk in 305 days. In 1990 (the year of the name change to Milking Shorthorn), the top producing cow in Canada was Des Frenes Maria 6K, owned by Laureat Patoine of Honfleur, QC, with 8116 kgs of milk in 305 days. On this last point, it’s heartening to see that we have seen an increased interest in Milking Shorthorns in Quebec in the last few years…hopefully we’ll see future production champions from Quebec herds in the near future! Needless to say, the breed has progressed a lot in recent years. Our all-time champion for milk production has produced more than 16,000 kgs of milk in 305 days and our breed average for milk production now eclipses the highest milk totals from the 1980’s and early 90’s. In just the last decade, Canadian breeders have put particular emphasis on fat production, contributing to an increase of breed average fat percentage from 3.65% in the late 2000’s to over 4.0% today. In combination with improvements to milk yields and udder conformation, we continue to see interest in Milking Shorthorns from breeders across the country. Where will the Milking Shorthorn breed go in the next couple of decades? To my mind, that depends on the choices made by our breed leaders as well as all breeders. We’ve seen greater international exchange of genetics as well as integration of outside red genetics to expand our genetic base and improve the profitability of the breed while retaining much of the efficiency and durability of Shorthorn genetics. Canadian dairy herd numbers continue to decrease and average herd size continues to increase; nonetheless, Society membership is as strong as it has been in many years. At the same time, the make-up of our membership has changed greatly over the years. In looking at the list of members from 1990, the only herds still active in the breed are Merrittview, Maple Inn, Fieldcrest, Northend and Oceanbrae. This means 20

CMSS Improver 2020


that we’ve attracted a lot of new breeders to the breed in the last thirty years! I hope that these members will choose to be a part of the second century of Milking Shorthorns in Canada by growing and improving the breed. The red, white and roan are a part of the fabric of our country and I trust that Milking Shorthorns will continue to have a place in our nation’s dairy industry well into the future!

Un siècle de Shorthorn Laitier au Canada par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire-gérant, SCSL Une récente conversation avec le président de notre Société, John Eccles, m’a incité à revenir sur l’histoire de la race Shorthorn Laitier au Canada. Une grande partie de nos membres sont nouveaux dans la race et ne connaissent peut-être pas la progression que notre race a connue au fil des ans. Malheureusement, mes recherches ont révélé que nous avons manqué l’occasion de célébrer le 100e anniversaire de notre Société l’année dernière! En 1919, des éleveurs de Shorthorn à double usage de tout le Canada se sont réunis à Guelph (Ont.) pour créer le Club des Shorthorn à double usage du Canada. Ce club a été créé au sein de l’Association des éleveurs de Shorthorn du Dominion (qui deviendra plus tard l’Association canadienne des Shorthorn) et deviendra finalement la Société canadienne des Shorthorn à double usage. En 1990, pour refléter l’évolution de l’identité de la race, le nom de la race et de la Société ont été changés pour la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier. Les Shorthorn Laitier font partie de la race Shorthorn depuis sa fondation en Angleterre à la fin du 18e siècle. Thomas Bates de Kirklevington est considéré comme le père des Shorthorn Laitier, pionnier de ces animaux à « double usage ». Les animaux Shorthorn de génétique Bates ont été exportés dans le monde entier dans les années 1800, y compris dans de nombreuses provinces canadiennes. Peu avant la Première Guerre mondiale, l’intérêt pour les Shorthorn à double usage a commencé à croître au Canada, ce qui a conduit les Shorthorn à commencer les tests d’enregistrement de la performance en 1913 et à fonder le Club des Shorthorn à double usage en 1919, suivi par la création d’un certain nombre d’expositions spécifiques pour les sujets à double usage dans plusieurs des plus grandes expositions de bovins du pays. L’un des premiers pionniers du programme des Shorthorn à double usage au Canada est la famille Bingeman de Waterloo (Ont.) dont le nom est encore bien connu dans cette région aujourd’hui. Jonas Bingeman a été l’un des premiers à détenir des records de production dans la race avant de vendre son troupeau à l’Université Purdue. Les premières années, la région de Caledonia dans le sud-ouest de l’Ontario, près de Brantford, était un centre d’excellence pour la race. De multiples troupeaux à double usage y ont prospéré pendant des décennies et, encore aujourd’hui, un certain nombre de lignées canadiennes remontent jusqu’à ces troupeaux, 22

CMSS Improver 2020


notamment les familles Bessie Joe et Betty pour n’en citer que deux. Un des premiers partisans des Shorthorn dans cette région fut l’honorable George Brown, père de la Confédération et fondateur du journal Toronto Globe. C’est peut-être cet héritage qui a permis aux Shorthorn à double usage d’être prolifiques et de connaître un grand succès dans la région de Caledonia / Brantford pendant de nombreuses années. Martindale, Gibson, Brown, Cockshutt (les tracteurs), Smith, Peart, Creighton et Atkinson ont été les pionniers et les leaders de la race dans cette région pendant la première moitié du 20e siècle. Ils ont généralement donné la priorité aux animaux avec un bon rendement laitier et des pis améliorés, en important souvent des animaux reproducteurs d’Angleterre et des États-Unis pour améliorer leurs troupeaux. Au fil du temps, les meilleurs troupeaux se sont établis dans d’autres régions de l’Ontario et dans d’autres provinces. Le troupeau Neralcam au Québec a importé pendant de nombreuses années de la génétique de pointe du RoyaumeUni et a eu un impact sur un certain nombre des meilleurs troupeaux américains. Les troupeaux de la vallée de l’Outaouais en Ontario et de l’Île-du-PrinceÉdouard ont remporté les honneurs lors des expositions nationales, et ont établi des records de production pendant de nombreuses années. Alors que les vaches laitières ont toujours été plus nombreuses dans l’est du Canada, leur nombre a augmenté dans l’ouest du pays récemment. Alors que les branches des Shorthorn Laitier et des Shorthorn Bouchère ont divergé aux États-Unis en 1949 au Canada, les Shorthorn Laitier sont restées une partie distincte du livre généalogique Shorthorn jusqu’en 2000, date à laquelle les Shorthorn Laitier et les Shorthorn Bouchère ont été officiellement séparées dans le livre généalogique, sans droit d’enregistrement réciproque. En 2010, la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier a été officiellement séparée de l’Association canadienne Shorthorn, devenant ainsi une association de race indépendante. L’année 2020 marque donc le 30e anniversaire de la race en tant que Shorthorn Laitier, le 20e anniversaire d’un livre généalogique distinct et le 10e anniversaire de la Société canadienne des Shorthorn Laitier en tant qu’association de race indépendante! Notre race a parcouru un long chemin. Au cours de la première année de publication du journal The Improver en 1978, le record de production le plus élevé revenait à Foxdale Fairy Mamie 2, propriété de Joe Sullivan de Peterborough (Ont.) qui avait produit 7 576 kg de lait en 305 jours. En 1990 (l’année du changement de nom pour les Shorthorn Laitier), la vache avec la meilleure production au Canada était Des Frenes Maria 6K, propriété de Lauréat Patoine de Honfleur (Qc) avec 8 116 kg de lait en 305 jours. Il est donc encourageant de constater l’intérêt accru pour les Shorthorn Laitier au Québec au cours des dernières années... espérons voir de futurs championnes de production issues de CMSS Improver 2020

23


troupeaux québécois dans un avenir proche! Il va sans dire que la race a beaucoup progressé ces dernières années. Notre championne de production de tous les temps a produit plus de 16 000 kg de lait en 305 jours, et la moyenne de notre race pour la production laitière vient maintenant éclipser les productions les plus élevées des années 1980 et du début des années 1990. Au cours des 10 dernières années, les éleveurs canadiens ont particulièrement mis l’accent sur la production de matière grasse, contribuant à l’augmentation du pourcentage moyen de gras de la race qui est passé de 3,65 % à la fin des années 2000 à plus de 4 % aujourd’hui. En combinaison avec l’amélioration des rendements laitiers et de la conformation du pis, nous continuons de voir l’intérêt des éleveurs de tout le pays pour les Shorthorn Laitier. Que va accomplir notre race dans les 20 prochaines années? Selon moi, cela dépend des choix faits par nos leaders et par l’ensemble des éleveurs. Nous avons assisté à un échange international plus important de la génétique et à l’intégration de la génétique Rouge externe pour élargir notre base génétique et améliorer la rentabilité de la race tout en conservant une grande partie de l’efficacité et de la durabilité de la génétique des Shorthorn Laitier. Au Canada, le nombre de troupeaux laitiers continue de diminuer et la taille moyenne des troupeaux continue d’augmenter, mais le nombre de membres de la Société est à son niveau le plus élevé depuis de nombreuses années. Dans le même temps, la composition de notre groupe de membres a beaucoup changé au fil des ans. Si l’on regarde la liste des membres de 1990, les seuls troupeaux encore actifs dans la race sont ceux de Merrittview, Maple Inn, Fieldcrest, Northend et Oceanbrae. Cela signifie que nous avons attiré beaucoup de nouveaux éleveurs dans notre race au cours des 30 dernières années! J’espère que ces membres choisiront de faire partie du deuxième siècle des Shorthorn Laitier au Canada en faisant grandir et en améliorant la race. Les Rouge, Blanc et Rouan font partie du tissu de notre pays et j’espère que les Shorthorn Laitier continueront à avoir leur place dans l’industrie laitière de notre pays pendant encore de nombreuses années!

CMSS Launches new Online Sale Barn The CMSS Board of Directors recently decided to launch a new online cattle sales service for Society members and anyone interested in Milking Shorthorn genetics which we’re calling the Online Sale Barn. This has its own page on the website (www.milkingshorthorn.ca/salebarn), as well as posts on Facebook and Twitter. In the Sale Barn, the Society will post 3 or 4 animals for sale each month, and these postings will only stay up for a month before they are replaced with new posts. All listings will feature multiple photos of the animal, full pedigree information, and a price. This is not an “auction” site....the listed price is the price requested and the first buyer to agree to that price will buy the animal. Inquiries are made through the Society, but prospective buyers are welcome to contact consigning breeders to learn more about animals available. Listings on the Sale Barn will be refreshed at the start of each month. Animal or embryos sold through the Sale Barn will be subject to a 5% commission. All animals sold through the Sale Barn will be transferred by the owner to the new buyer after payment and delivery, with the Society offering to assist in making transportation arrangements. The Sale Barn will replace our previous Online National Sales as an opportunity to provide high quality Milking Shorthorn genetics for sale through the Society. Our hope is that the Society can continue to help connect prospective new buyers with current breeders in this way and increase the number of Milking Shorthorns making their way into new herds across Canada. As we will have limited listings each month, spots are first come, first served and we’ll accept one listing per farm to start. Listings must be accompanied with quality photos (clean, clipped up animals) to be considered. Acceptance of listings is at the discretion of the SecretaryManager depending on quality of pedigree and photos. Applications for listings can be sent to Ryan at milking.shorthorn@ gmail.com. Watch the CMSS website each month for new listings!

2019 Field Day and AGM: Headacher Milking Shorthorns, Schomberg, ON We had a great turnout for the 2019 Field Day and AGM in Schomberg, Ontario on July 27th. A combination of long-time breeders, new breeders, and industry partners started the morning with a visit to the Headacher herd near Schomberg, owned by Jenna Kippen. Jenna has a small herd of Milking Shorthorns, with the milk going to feed a number of goats. Since starting with her first Milking Shorthorn as a 4-H project in the early 2000’s, Jenna has bred and owned a number of showwinning cows and heifers as well as selling accomplished brood cows to a number of Canadian herds. A stand-out during our visit was a springing heifer by Playboy that looks to be making a terrific udder. We then proceeded to the nearby Trisan Centre in Schomberg for lunch, a fun auction, award presentations, and the 2019 Annual Meeting. Fred Barrett accepted the 2019 Cow of the Year Award for Oceanbrae Pingerly Betty, and Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett presented certificates for production awards and Star Brood Cows. During the Annual Meeting, President Don Richardson and Secretary Ryan Barrett provided an update on a number of the programs and initiatives of the Society during the past year. One bylaw amendment to require DNA testing for registration of males was passed unanimously. Janine Eygenraam of Holstein Canada was in attendance to meet Milking Shorthorn breeders, as she is the service representative respon-

Thanks to all who attended the Field Day, and special thanks to the Kippen/O’Hara family for hosting us in Schomberg. The Field Day is the main social event for the Society each year, and all are welcome in future years to join us and talk Shorthorns with fellow breeders!

Oceanbrae Pingerly Betty named 2019 Cow of the Year At the 2019 CMSS Field Day and AGM, Oceanbrae Pingerly Betty was revealed as Cow of the Year after voting by CMSS members from across the country. Betty is owned by Fred and Matthew Barrett of Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, PEI. Betty is a six year old Milking Shorthorn that already has a long list of accomplishments. Classified Excellent 90 points, she was the Grand Champion of the National Milking Shorthorn Show in 2015. Betty completed her best lactation record thus far in 2018, producing almost 11,000 kgs of milk in 305 days and receiving a Superior Production Award. She was the #3 LPI Cow in Canada after the August 2019 genetic evaluations. Oceanbrae Pingerly Betty is sired by the Australian sire Treeton Pingerly and is out Oceanbrae Jurist Betty, also bred and owned by the Barrett family. Her maternal brother, Oceanbrae Royal Bentley, has semen available internationally through Semex. Runner-up for 2019 Cow of the Year was Camflat Inforcer Mary EX-92, bred and owned by the Campsall family of Woodville, Ontario. Mary was Grand Champion at the 2018 National Show in Lindsay, ON and produced just under 10,000 kgs of milk in third lactation. Fred was on hand at the 2019 Field Day in Schomberg, Ontario to receive this award from CMSS President Don Richardson. Fred notes that “Betty is one of the best all-around, balanced cows that we’ve bred at Oceanbrae, and we are honoured to receive this award based on the votes from our fellow breeders.”

Country Report: Australia by Michael Tuhan, Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia Good autumn rain across most dairying regions in Australia has made for a more positive outlook after what has been a fairly torrid year of lingering drought and bushfires in some areas. Throughout this period signs for the Illawarra breed have been very positive with demand for cattle remaining strong despite challenging conditions on farm. The famed Ovensdale herd has now been dispersed after a three stage sale process. Many new breeders seized the opportunity to add quality Illawarra genetics to their herds. Purchases by multiple high profile breeders from other breeds highlighted the interest being created by a strong showing profile in recent years. Prices achieved across these three sales, as well as the Llandovery tag sale and a couple of other smaller herd dispersals, were comfortably above the going market rate for dairy cattle. The Illawarra Cattle Society participated in the International Red Dairy Breeds Federation Conference in South Australia in March 2019. As well as being a great networking event, it was a tremendous opportunity to promote the quality of our cattle during visits to the Treeton, Springvale and Braelee herds. The Ayrshire World Conference was held at International Dairy Week in 2020. Although not directly involved, the Illawarra

breed generated some real interest amongst Ayrshire delegates that also watched the Illawarra breed judging. An exciting development for the breed has been the decision by ST Genetics to take on their first Illawarra bull. Treeton Scarlet’s Zumba A2A2 comes from an EX92-4E Pimp dam with production over 11,000 litres in 305 days and backed by some serious longevity. The VG88 2nd dam has over 98,000 litres lifetime, 3rd dam VG86 with 114,609L lifetime, VG88 4th dam 72,134L lifetime and VG87 5th dam with 84,766L lifetime! At almost 80% purity he should appeal to most breeders. Another high purity bull Ovensdale Jenny’s Tribute has also entered collection. His sire Myrtleholme Mitch is the number 2 ranked bull in the breed and has maintained his proof over a long period with high production and a tremendous rating for cell count. Mitch worked particularly well in the Ovensdale herd with several daughters creating significant interest in the herd dispersal, including Beauty 383 EX92 and Scarlet 284 EX91. Tribute’s EX5E dam has over 100,000 litres lifetime. With an EX2E second dam and also an EX maternal sister, Tribute has a true “no holes pedigree” and should provide a great outcross for Canadian breeders. On the flipside, Australia has great access to Canadian bulls via Semex Australia. However, opportunities to use US genetics have been somewhat limited. To that extent the breed took steps to directly import semen from Kuszmar Strokers Ace for breeder’s use. Semen has also been sourced from New Zealand young sire Brecon Kaikoura and Bushmills Jazz from the UK, as the Illawarra breed continues to integrate the best red genetics from around the world.

Congratulations to Matthew and Chandler Barrett, who were married on September 14th, 2019. Matt farms along with his father Fred at Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, PEI. Chandler is a high school teacher in Summerside. They also just welcomed their first child, Annabelle, in the spring of 2020. CMSS Improver 2020

Country Report: United States by Brenda Damrow Gudex, AMSS Executive Secretary

Heavenly Betty EXP, Grand Champion of the Northeastern National Show 2019 Someone recently referred to the year 2020 as the “Year of the Asterisk.” The cancellations and deviations in our lives will always be attributed to the “pandemic of 2020.” There is no one way to describe how the year 2020 has started...and there is no end in sight. Constant changes and hardships seem to be standards in the dairy industry as of late. Just as there seemed to be some relief and hope for the dairy industry, it has now taken a dramatic downturn. Dairy farmers in the United States face great uncertainty. Dropping prices and dumping milk is now a common occurrence. The inconsistencies of the dairy industry stretch far across all of agriculture. While the near future seems dim, we still work to build on the future. As 2020 struggles to move forward, we look back at the successes of 2019. American Milking Shorthorn Society (AMSS) members Jerry and Deb Merrill traveled to Canada to the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Field Day. This trip utilized USLGE funds. The message from the Canadian breeders was consistent in the lack of availability of U.S. semen. This has been a focus of discussion amongst U.S. breeders. Greg and Marcia Clark traveled to Australia also utilizing USLGE funding. The Clark’s attended IDW and had the opportunity to visit with breeders. 42

AMSS Secretary Brenda Gudex and AMSS International Committee Chair Kylie Preisinger attended the USLGE conference in Nashville, Tennessee. This conference was invaluable in information regarding the usage of USLGE funding and opened new pathways for collaboration on international activities. The Bull Book has become one of the most highly anticipated publications for AMSS. The 2019 version featured more than 50 bulls available to Milking Shorthorn breeders. The publication has become the go to resource for genetic information for the breed. The 2020 edition will be available soon! The advancement of genetics within the breed was on display at each on of the National Shows. The quality of every class from top to bottom was apparent at our five National Shows. Type and production followed our show champions. Northeastern: Eastern: Western: International: Winter:

The outcome of the 2020 show season has yet to be determined. The current economic situation in the United States does not seem to support the agricultural industry, especially the dairy industry. The full effect of the situation will not be determined in the near future. We saw some improvement in overall output by AMSS in 2019. We registered 2,252 head of cattle. We boast a membership of 470 National members and with over 800 junior members. Even the slightest growth shows promise. But again, we cannot let the trials and tribulation of 2020 become a focus on what is yet to come. The AMSS national convention, national sale and annual meeting for 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was not an easy decision by any means. However, Wisconsin will now host the 2021 national event. With all that is happening, we still optimistically look to the future of our breed. We look forward in more collaboration internationally that will benefit both of our societies. With expanding genetics, an increase in registrations and membership, and more opportunity to work together, the future looks bright for the Red, White and Roan. CMSS Improver 2020

Country Report: United Kingdom Ros Rimmer, Secretary, Shorthorn Society of the UK & Ireland The UK Dairy Industry continues to face challenging times with many milk producers exiting the industry on a regular basis, the Society has therefore seen a decrease in membership in the last 12 months, and a small drop in registrations compared to last year. Despite this the society has had a profitable year and we continue to actively look for opportunities to increase registrations, for example recent increased sales of Shorthorn semen will be followed up and hopefully filter through to more registrations. TB also continues to have a detrimental influence on the Dairy Industry, and along with that producers now await results of trading negotiations following Brexit to see how these will affect the industry. Promotion of the Breed continued vigorously over the last 12 months, the Society had a presence at major agricultural shows. Standout Championships have been the following: UK Dairy Day was won by Twells Susie 69 VG88 sired by Strickley Maximus from the Wyatt family, a first major victory for the family who have had a long hiatus from the competitive show ring. The Dairy Show at Bath & West and Royal Cornwall Champion was Marleycote Patricia 20 EX94 sired by Nejay Royalty from the Osbourne family, who have been fantastic supporters of the breed since purchasing their first shorthorns several years ago. Notably both of these cows have been sired by bulls available on SSUK showing that the committee continually source successful bulls that produce cattle of high type and profitable components. Perhaps the highlight of all the shows last year was the fantastic win with the team of five at the Great Yorkshire Show who were tapped out supreme in the Interbreed demonstrating that the breed has uniformity and can compete with any other. The society is forever grateful to all the breeders for showing the breed in ultimately the best shop window that is the show ring. Further support has been shown at a number of show and sales at livestock markets around the country, attendance at these events also give an opportunity to support existing members. With recent political 44

CMSS Improver 2020


focus on environmental issues and sustainability the Dairy Shorthorn Society now has the opportunity to promote the attributes of our dairy breed. Here in the UK we feel that as a grazing breed we truly are the most sustainable breed that is most economical and therefore should be the number one choice in the future. The future is bright, the future is red, white and roan! Genomic testing is on-going and the Society continue to work with the relevant organisations to build the required database. Genomics will help to optimize profitability and yields of herds by making strategic breeding decisions. Youth Development has to be one of the main priorities of the Society, this year has seen two young members elected onto Council, which has proved very beneficial. The Society work to support and bring on the next generation of Dairy Farmers by holding and getting involved in successful calf shows and young handlers competitions. The highlight this year was when one of our young members won the Interbreed Young Handlers Competition at The Great Yorkshire Show against very stiff opposition. The Young Breeders weekend was held in conjunction with the AGM this year and brought youngsters together to build relationships and share knowledge. Social Media is a good way to communicate, this year the Society started posting on Instagram to help attract young breeders who will then also help to promote the breed. Finally, the World Shorthorn Conference 2022 will be held in the UK to commemorate the Coates Herd Book being 200 years old. Preparations are currently in hand with a route being formulated to tickle the taste buds of any Shorthorn enthusiast. I sincerely hope we can entice our friends to cross over the waters and join what promises to be a great tour. The World Conference is always a fantastic opportunity for those who can visit and to see fellow breeders and see the diversity of the breed on the other side of the world. Best Wishes to all our Shorthorn friends in Canada and throughout the world. If any breeders are planning a visit to the UK please do not hesitate to get in touch with the office.

Country Report: New Zealand by David & Johanna Wood, New Zealand Milking Shorthorn Association

It seems as though our country report has many of the same messages to previous years as once again in 2019 the weather treated us to its many different moods with variation. In the South Island there has been a lot of rain and significant flooding while in the North Island it has been very dry, with drought over the whole of the island (and we are still in drought in our area now). With the advent of Covid-19, the New Zealand Milking Shorthorn Conference, which was due to be held in Southland in March 2020, was cancelled. While dairying is seen as an essential service, there have been significant restrictions on us all. 2019 saw the NZMSA become a member of the International Red Dairy Breeds Federation and one of our members, Russell Tocker, sits on their board. RBG marketed two bulls through its breeding scheme with Semex in 2019. They were Brecon Kaikoura (a Brecon Egmont son, out of Brecon Turbo dam) and Northbrook Noah (a V Foske son, out of Northbrook Way). The 2020 bull team has also been selected: Brecon Sonic Boom (a VR Vagner son out of Brecon Wai Snowfreeze) and Westell Carbo Arlo (a Oliver Woods Carbo out of Bekay Gilham Angel) Mycoplasma Bovis continues to impact on our premier show event, the New Zealand Dairy Event, but it is pleasing to be able to report that Stratford A & P had a great show in November last year with all breeds holding their North Island Cow Championship at this event. There continues to be an interest in the Milking Shorthorn breed and many of our members are approached for animals. Over the last year the NZMSA has been investigating genomic testing of New Zealand animals to improve genetic gain. We wish our fellow Milking Shorthorn breeders in Canada all the best as we learn to live in a different world to pre Covid -19. On a personal note, if and when borders open again you would be welcomed by New Zealand breeders.

New Release Young Sires in 2020 After a bit of a dry spell in terms of new young sires becoming available in Canada, there are some new sires for Canadian breeders to use: Richford Icon Icon is the newest release from the CMSS Syndicates program with Semex. He is sired by American sire North Stars Famous Patriot, a proven sire known for strong milk production along with size and style. Patriot does not yet have a Canadian proof but his Canadian daughters have thus far been above average for milk production. Patriot was sired by the Now You See son Vinra Bar-D Famous and was out of North Stars Talent Punkin (by Ladino Park Talent). Icon’s dam is Richford Ironman Iceland EX-90, the two-time Canadian National Show Grand Champion. In second lactation, Iceland produced 8705 kg M with 4.3% fat and 3.7% fat in 305 days with BCAs of 331-354376. In 4th lactation, Iceland is projected to produce over 9000 kg M. She has consistently been a high fat and protein producer. Her dam (by Innisfail Prince of Diamonds) produced more than 11,000 kg milk in 5th lactation and was scored VG-85. Iceland comes from the Irma cow family that traces back to Wilder Farm Irma 66th EX, who was imported from the USA and remained in the Shady Brae herd until she was 14 years old. This young sire represents a complimentary mating of the milk and size of Patriot with the components and well attached udder of Iceland. A sire stack of Patriot x Ironman x POD makes him a solid option for pedigrees heavy with Logic, Zumba, Plato or Jurist breeding. Ovensdale Jenny’s Tribute Tribute is one of the highest purity bulls to come out of Australia in recent year and comes from one of the deepest, most productive cow families in Canada. He is sired by Myrtleholme Mitch, a proven Illawarra sire who is +738 M and a solid type proof in Australia. His dam, Ovensdale Jenny 62nd EX-90-5E has produced over 100,000 kgs of lifetime milk production with a top record of 11,128 kg M at 4.0%F and 3.2%P. 48

CMSS Improver 2020


The next dam, Ovensdale Jenny 45th EX-90-2E has over 70,000 kgs of lifetime milk production with a top record of 9175 M at 4.2%F and 3.2%P. The Jenny cow family is well-known in Australia for making Excellent cows that last for a long time and that are very productive. A sire stack of Mitch x Crystal Park Ultimate Boy x Town View Cassius features three well-respected bulls who have made a big impact on the Illawarra breed. The CMSS is planning an importation of Tribute semen from AgriGene in Australia. His pedigree is very outcross to most genetics in North America. Tribute is 76.4% purity in the Illawarra herdbook. Treeton Scarlet Zumba Newly available from ST-Genetics is Treeton Scarlet Zumba, a high purity A2A2 sire. His is sired by Semex sire Mapleton Vly J Zumba out of Ovensdale Scarlet 255 EX-92, one of the highest selling cows at the Ovensdale herd dispersal. She has four milk records over 10,000 kg in 305 days and is one of the highest classified Illawarras in Australia. Scarlet Zumba has a sire stack of Zumba x Treeton Pimp x Ovensdale Scarlets Marcel. The cow family features multiple generations with high lifetime production. Scarlet Zumba is expected to be available sexed. Henkeseen Cyride Also expected to be available in 2020 is the new ST-Genetics bull Henkeseen Cyride. Hailing from Henkeseen Farms in Iowa, Cyride is sired by Lands-Brook Cyclone, a Logic son of Lands-Brook Christina-EXP EX-96-4E, the multiple time show winner. His dam is Innisfail ST Stella 329-EXP EX-93-3E who placed 3rd in the Five Year Old class at World Dairy Expo in 2018. In third lactation, Stella 329 produced 12,335 kg milk at 3.6% fat and 3.1% protein. Sire stack is Lands-Brook Cyclone x Innisfail Perfect Storm x Mysha McNutmeg Cyclone (a POD son). Preliminary purity calculation on Cyride is 71.8% purity. Cyride is expected to be available sexed.

Milking Shorthorns: An Efficient Dairy Alternative • More efficient converter of feed to milk, especially pasture and other forages, lowering feed cost. • Many cows producing in excess of 9000 kgs of milk per 305 days on low input management. • Superior feet and leg structure, with excellent hoof durability. • Greater reproductive efficiency, with fewer days open, higher nonreturn rate of cows and heifers, and smaller calving intervals, meaning less wasted time and expense to the breeder. Milking Shorthorns have the highest 56 day Non-Return Rate across all breeds! • Ease of calving - 98% of cows calve unassisted or with easy pull! • Greater salvage value for bull calves and cull cows than other dairy breeds. • Industry leading figures for longevity, with the highest number of cows (46%) lasting until fourth lactation or more. • According the Canadian Dairy Network, the breed with the greatest percentage of cows recorded as very quiet or quiet temperament. • According to recent CDN studies, the breed with the lowest average somatic cell score.

DNA required for registration of males At the 2019 AGM, the membership unanimously approved an amendment to require parentage verification by DNA (microsatellite) at the time of registration. This requirement went into effect January 1st, 2020. This will add integrity to the herd book as well as assisting breeders with questions of parentage on future female registrations. At the moment, genomic evaluations are not available for Canadian Milking Shorthorns. The Society is working with other Shorthorn populations on investigating how we can cooperate internationally to make genomic testing/evaluations a reality for our breed. In the meantime, any breeder interested in contributing hair samples to our “gene bank” being held at the office are welcome to send samples to be held for future genomic testing. CMSS Improver 2020
