Secretary’s Report

Ryan Barrett, Secretary-Manager, CMSS Like every year, the past year has been one of both challenges and opportunities. Many Canadian dairy farmers, particularly in the Eastern Provinces, experienced a hot, dry summer which resulted in a shortage of forages. Many producers I have talked to note that their cows have milked well on high quality forage, but that they are hoping for an early spring so that they don’t run out of it. On course, this shortage of feed and generally higher production across the country has resulted in a weak market for replacement animals of any colour. For many breeders, this presents an opportunity to make valuable culling decisions to improve the total merit of their herd at a time when replacement prices aren’t much higher than beef prices.

At the same time, the genetic merit of our next generation of heifers has never been better! CDN recently announced the 2013 LPI base change adjustments which adjust all LPI values across the breed to account for annual levels of genetic improvement. After a few years without large base changes (ie. genetic progress), the Milking Shorthorn breed will see a base change of 44 LPI points, comparable with the 50 point base change for the Jersey breed (with a much larger sire sampling program and genomic selection) and much larger than the base changes for Brown Swiss, Guernsey, or Canadienne.

This level of genetic improvement is also becoming quite evident in the performance of Two Year Olds over the last two years, as these young cows are dominating the ranks of our Superior Production Awards and have fat percentages significantly higher than Mature Cows. This is due in part to sire selection that has put increased emphasis on fat production over the past few years. It is encouraging to see positive results from these changes in selection, and kudos to breeders for playing their part in helping to make improvements in breed average production and component percentages.

Another cause for optimism in our breed was a significant increase in registrations last year. Our breed registered 371 animals in 2012. While this total is quite a bit smaller than most other Canadian breeds and it is still not anywhere near the level that we would like, it is a 32% increase from our 2011 registration total and is the highest level of registrations we’ve experienced in 20 years! True, we had a couple of herds get caught up on registrations last year, but that does not account for the full increase that we saw. As well, transfer numbers were at their highest level in several years as well, which says good things about the level of interest there is in purchasing Milking Shorthorns. That being said, I encourage all breeders to keep their registrations up to date, as it is the cheapest way to add value to your cattle while also providing revenue 5

to the Society to help promote the breed!

Yet another bright spot has been increased international interest in Canadian Milking Shorthorn genetics. In the past 24 months, Canadian breeders have sold embryos to Australia and United States, as well as the first ever embryo exports to New Zealand, Japan, and Ireland. At the same time, Canadian sires sampled through the Syndicate program at Semex have had semen exported to these countries as well as the United Kingdom, Venezeula, Nigeria, and Trinidad & Tobago. Our trusted milk recording and classification system combined with high quality, higher purity genetics have made Canadian Milking Shorthorns of interest from several international buyers. This is good news for breeders, as it provides an additional source of income while increasing the equity of breeding stock in general.

The CMSS Board decided to forego National Sales in 2013 in favour of a new listing service called the CMSS Marketplace. We have already sold the first animals via this service to a new breeder in Quebec and I hope that breeders across the country will take advantage of this service. We will re-evaluate having National Sales in the future but given the soft market for cattle this winter and spring as well as a sale happening at the time of the Field Day this summer, your Board’s decision seems appropriate thus far.

I was able to travel to Stratford, Ontario in February to attend the inaugural Canadian Dairy Xpo on behalf of the Society. We had a prime booth position and had a better level of interaction with producers than I had expected. We gave away a lot of copies of the Improver and got to talk to several producers about the benefits of the breed. Special thanks to the Richardson family for hosting me for a couple of days and helping with the booth, as well thanks to Jim and Judy Snyder for also helping to man the booth.

As most of you know, I tend to be an optimistic person, viewing the glass more often than not as half full rather than half empty. I am realistic that we continue to be faced with challenges, including a small population, a lack of presence in many parts of the country, and a lack of genomic selection available to our breeders. At the same time, we have seen a steady increase in membership and population in recent years and we continue to find new breeders interested in adding Milking Shorthorns to their herds. Our level of sire selection from diverse genetic sources has never been higher and we continue to have a number of animals setting new All Time records. My challenge to all breeders continues to be a call to be ambassadors of the breed in your region. Think of the breed growth that we would experience if half of our herds sold to a new breeder every year! Take advantage of the marketing services offered by the Society, consider exhibiting or attending our National Show in Lindsay, and don’t be afraid to talk to your neighbouring dairy 6

herd about why you love your Shorthorns. There are a lot of herds in Canada where Milking Shorthorns will thrive, particularly herds emphasizing efficient production from forage and pasture. In an economy with rapidly increasing energy, labour, and grain costs, Milking Shorthorns are definitely a wise choice for many Canadian herds.

Finally, I hope to see many of you at the Field Day and AGM in July at Oceanbrae Farms in Prince Edward Island. This is the first Field Day “on the Island� since 1999 and my family are excited to have Milking Shorthorn breeders come for a visit and see the herd. Field Days have long been a great way for our breed to build community while accomplishing the business of the Society. If you would like any help in making arrangements for travel or accommodations, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. My sincerest wishes for a prosperous year for all Shorthorn breeders!



Lynmark Out Fleece is 2012 Cow of the Year

The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society is proud to announce that the 2012 Canadian Milking Shorthorn Cow of the Year is Lynmark Out Fleece EX-94, bred and owned by Lynmark Farms of Norwood, Ontario. Sired by Mericrest Outlaw, Fleece scored 94 points this past year at her first opportunity to be classified as Excellent. Fleece completed a very strong Four Year Old record, with 9298 kgs of milk at 5.2% fat and 3.3% protein for BCAs of 307-396-311 in 305 days. Fleece also placed second in the Four Year Old class at the 2011 National Show last September. As well, she comes from a strong cow family, with both her dam and grand-dam being multiple Excellent cows as well as Star Brood Cows. Fleece now sits second All Time for Four Year Old Fat production at 479 kgs of fat produced in 305 days in her most recent lactation. The Cow of the Year contest is voted on by members of the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society. This year's contest featured four strong nominees which all received multiple votes. The other three nominated cows were Oceanbrae N Missy EX-93, owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, PEI; Maple Inn Rosemary 56th EX-95, owned by Maple Inn Farms and Lynmark Farms of Norwood, ON; and Prinsville Logic Starshine VG-89, owned by Prinsville Dairy Farms of Bloomfield, ON. 8

April 2013 Genetic Evaluation Changes by Ryan Barrett, Secretary-Manager, CMSS

In April 2013, the Canadian Dairy Network (CDN) implemented a rescaling of values for Lifetime Profit Index (LPI) across all breeds by halving the standard deviation for each breed. This was done for a few different reasons. Firstly, there was perceived need to reduce the intensity place on LPI differences for elite animals in each breed. In general, there is a spread of several hundred LPI points amongst the Top 5 LPI proven sires, which over-emphasizes the actual difference that producers can expect by using these elite sires. For breeds with genomic evaluations, it was felt that reducing the LPI range would also keep high index genomic young sires closer in value to progeny proven sires, helping to counteract the perceived genetic superiority of these unproven sires that in truth may not be much better than the top proven sires. Finally, by decreasing the range while moving the “average” up to a positive constant figure, it would eliminate the negative LPI values that often creep in on ancestor animals on extended pedigrees. These negative values are not often seen on indices in several other countries, including the USA.

In implementing this halving of standard deviation, each breed was asked to agree upon a “constant” value which would be added to the base index for every animal. This will enable the bulls and cows at the top of the LPI lists to retain values similar to what was seen previously, while increasing the final value for animals that were further down the list. Ranking of animals does not change, but the difference in LPI points between individual animals on the ranking list has decreased. The CMSS Board, in consultation with CDN, agreed that 1000 would serve as a good constant for the Milking Shorthorn breed. This keeps the values for the #1 sire at close to 2000 LPI while making for an easy to remember benchmark for what is an average LPI animal. The breed average will now effectively be +1000 LPI, and an animals with a negative LPI value will be at the very bottom of the breed for genetic merit.

At the same time as these changes to scaling, CDN implemented the annual base change, which takes into account average levels of genetic improvement in the breed. While previous base change adjustments have not been very high for Milking Shorthorns, the April 2013 adjustment is 44 LPI points, similar to that for the Jersey breed at +50. The breed also saw a 0.51 increase in conformation, behind only Holstein (0.80) and Ayrshire (0.52) among the breeds. This base change is applied across the entire population

2012 Field Day Report The 2012 CMSS Field Day and AGM was held on Saturday, July 21st, hosted by Don and Karen Richardson and family of Richford Farms, St. Marys, Ontario. After many days of extreme heat in Southern Ontario, the Field Day weekend brought more moderate temperatures in the mid 20s along with lots of sunshine. Don and Karen Richardson’s farm sits in northern Oxford County, on the border with Perth County. Don purchased his first Milking Shorthorns in the Seagrave/Nordica Dispersal in 2002. After seeing a place for the breed in his tie-stall herd which incorporates rotational grazing, Don has expanded his Milking Shorthorn herd with purchases of foundation stock from the Oceanbrae, Headacher and Prosperous Acres herds. The majority of the herd is now comprised of Milking Shorthorns or MSHolstein crosses. A couple of standouts from the herd tour were Oceanbrae Logic Lace, a third lactation cow that should definitely reclassify higher than her current GP-83 from first lactation, as well as Headacher Prince of D Ireland VG-85, currently milking over 100 lbs a day. Towards the end of the morning, a judging class of first lactation heifers was held with Fred Barrett acting as official judge. Numerous breeders noted that they would be happy to take any of the four heifers home for their herds. These heifers were by Mocha, Plato and Fred Barrett amd Don Richardson Famous. After a lovely BBQ lunch sponsored by Semex Alliance, production award certificates were announced and presented to breeders in attendance. As well, the 2012 Cow of the Year was presented, with Doug 18

Part of the Two Year Old judging class.

Wherry accepting the award for Lynmark Out Fleece on behalf of Lynmark Farms. President John Knox and PastPresident Fred Barrett then presented the Distinguished Service Award to James and Patricia Knott, the previous Secretary-Treasurer Past-President Fred Barrett and CMSS President team for the CMSS and John Knox present Pat & Jim Knott with past breeders under the their Distinguished Service Award. Knottview prefix. Fred thanked Jim and Pat for their lifetime of involvement with and service to the Milking Shorthorn breed. Jim is now a Presbyterian minister in nearby Embro, ON. Following a lively fun action featuring donated items from a number of businesses and breeders, the Annual Meeting was called to order by President John Knox. A good number of current and former members were in attendance, including members of the Ulrick family from Seagrave Farm and the Knott family from Knottview. John and Ryan highlighted Society accomplishments in the past year as well as the financial status of the Society. After completing a three year term as Director for Ontario, Brian Laughlin decided to not re-offer for another term. Don Richardson was nominated and acclaimed to this position...welcome Don! The two other directors with terms ending in 2012 (Diane Naylor for Western Canada and John Knox for Ontario) both re-offered for those positions and there were no additional nominations.

Changing the Face of the Breed:

Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P From time to time, there is an individual cow that not only reaches the pinnacle of the breed on her own merits, but changes the face of the breed through her progeny. In the Holstein breed, Comestar Laurie Sheik’s progeny and grandprogeny have dominated both the show ring and the proof sheets for many years. In the Jersey breed, over 80% of Canadian Jerseys have Duncan Belle appear at least once in their extended pedigree, following her multiple RAWF Grand Championships and her many sons and grand-sons in AI. In the Milking Shorthorn and Illawarra breeds, Sunny View Little Princess 30, born in the 1950’s, can appear as many as 10 times in some extended pedigrees. It appears that the Milking Shorthorn breed has a new matriarch who is changing the face of the breed in Canada and the United States: Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P. The only time I saw Accent-P in person was at the 2005 AMSS National Sale in Kansas. She was selling as a Four Year Old and was consigned by her breeders, the Ruzic family of Rovin Acres in Wisconsin. Accent had an impressive Three Year Old lactation over 10,000 kgs of milk at 4.7% fat and 3.5% protein in 363 days. I remember an impressive young cow with a well attached udder, and with a rather unique light red colour. What made her even more unique was the fact that she was polled. While the polled gene tends to be on average more common in Milking Shorthorns than in other breeds, there have been few polled cows that become quite as influential in the breed as Accent has become. Accent ended up being the high seller of that National Sale, selling to the Kulp Family of Pennsylvania for $7,400. That November, Accent would go on to win the Four Year Old class at the Winter National Show in Louisville, Kentucky and would win Grand Championship honours. She would also be named All-American for her 2005 achievements. She would also follow with two more lactations over 10,000 kgs of milk in 305 days at over 5% fat…significantly above the breed average for fat in the Milking Shorthorn breed. Accent also would score Excellent 92 points. Accent’s polled gene comes through her maternal line despite several generations of use of non-polled sires. Her dam, Rovin Alise Clay Ali-P EX24

Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P EX-92

93, also has records over 10,000 kgs with high component percentages and has had other successful progeny other than Accent, including a privately sampled son by Othello and a son and daughter via embryo transfer at Lady Grove Milking Shorthorns in Manitoba. While Accent’s personal accomplishments are impressive, they are only part of story. The truly lasting influence of Accent will be through her progeny and grand-progeny, who are combining type and milk production with fat and protein production that before now has not been consistently seen in the Milking Shorthorn breed. A number of Milking Shorthorns breeders have been yearning for high purity genetics with significant improvements in fat and protein production, as these have been traits that have required improvement for a number of years. There are few other examples in the Milking Shorthorn breed of cows that have transmitted fat and protein percentage as consistently as Accent, which is why she and her offspring are changing the face of the breed for both existing breeders but also for those giving Milking Shorthorns new consideration as a breed of choice for their herds. Firstly, let us examine her two sons that have been sold to AI units. Her oldest son, Kulp-Gen Jurist Ace-EXP, was sampled by Select Sires and sired by the SRB bull B Jurist. The combination of Accent’s strong type and component production with the very strong component production of Jurist has led to Ace becoming one of the breed leaders for fat and protein production among bulls at the EXP purity level or higher in the USA. He currently sits #13 on the AMSS PPR index list; however, he is #5 among bulls at the EXP purity level or higher. He also #1 among all proven sires for PTA Fat % at 0.36. He is also the #1 sire in Canada for fat and protein percentage after the April 2013 proof round. Ace daughters are receiving considerable attention in multiple countries for the quality of their udders as well as their dairyness and productivity. Accent’s other son in AI is Kulp-Gen OK Acdmy Adam-P, one of few recent sires in AI to carry the polled gene. While Adam-P has not transmitted the high milk production of his dam, his daughters also have significantly improved fat and protein percentages. Adam-P is also above average for type, with daughters possessing strong feet and legs, improved size and stature, as well as strongly attached rear udders. While below average for milk and for length of teat, AdamP daughters are sticking around in many herds. A polled son of Adam-P, Oceanbrae Ironman-P, has been sampled by Semex with progeny in several countries. Perhaps of even more lasting influence will be the merit of Accent’s daughters. Accent was heavily flushed by the Kulps, with embryos and daughters sold to a number of different herds in the USA as well as three herds in Canada. These daughters include: continued on page 26 25

Accent: continued from page 25 • Kulp-Gen Jurist Anika-P EX-90, owned by Samantha Benson of Chehalis, WA. Anika-P produced in excess of 11,600 kgs (25,000 lbs) of milk in second lactation at 6.8% fat and 3.5% protein. She has a son by Logic in AI (Kundes Golden Logic Adventure) and has a VG daughter as well. She has been at or near the top of the Top PPR Cow List for a number of proof rounds. • Kulp-Gen Jurist Angel-EXP GP-84-2yr, owned by Ivan and Diane Naylor of Kleefeld, Manitoba. Purchased as a calf from the Kulps, Angel is the #1 LPI cow in Canada in April 2013, and her daughter by Mocha sits at #3 LPI. Angel produced 9490 kgs of milk at 4.4%F and 3.5%P in first lactation, good enough to be a Class Leader.

• Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P VG-86, owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Belmont, PEI. Fawn’s Accent just set the new All Time 305 day Fat Record in Canada at 696 kgs of fat after producing 9815 kgs of milk at an astounding 7.0% fat. She is also a high protein producer (3.7%) and has three fresh heifers by Logic in the Oceanbrae herd. She was the product of embryos by CD purchased from the Kulps. • Koopycrest Mocha Ali Apple VG-88, owned by Shawn Koopmans of Picton, ON. Apple is the #5 LPI cow in Canada after becoming the new All Time Class Leader for Milking Yearlings with 8650 kgs of milk at 4.4%F and 3.4%. • Kulp-Gen OK Academy Annie-P VG-88, owned by the McCools of Chehalis, WA. • Kulp-Gen Ted Anika-P VG-85, owned by David Kulp of Manheim, PA Accent also has three other young daughters scored Very Good in the USA. Almost universally, these many daughters, spread across multiple herds in different parts of North America, have had consistently higher fat and protein percentages while also having strong milk production and strong functional conformation. A number of these daughters are being considered as potential dams of AI sires, as this family definitely seems to be transmitting excellence over multiple generations.

Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P Sets New All Time Single Lactation Fat Record

The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society has a new All-Time Single Lactation Fat Champion…and this cow has destroyed the previous record by more than 140 kgs of fat! The new Fat Champion is Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P, a Junior Three Year Old owned by the Barrett family of Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, Prince Edward Island. Accent was classified Very Good 86 at three years of age. In her 305 day second lactation, Accent produced 696 kgs of fat, eclipsing the previous record of 565 kgs of fat set by an Ontario cow several years ago. Accent produced these 696 kgs of fat by producing 9815 kgs of milk, for a fat percentage of 7.0%, a full four percent higher than the Milking Shorthorn breed average! Accent also produced 355 kgs of protein (at 3.7%), good enough for second place on the All-Time Protein leader list for Milking Shorthorn Three Year Olds. Accent’s BCA is an impressive 371-644-413. Making Accent even more special is the fact that she is naturally polled. Sired by Bar-D Krause’s Fawn’s C.D., her dam is former All American Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P EX. Accent was the result of an imported embryo imported from the United States, and she has two maternal brothers who are proven AI sires. Fawn has been flushed several times and has eight daughters, including three first lactation heifers newly fresh in the Oceanbrae herd. 36



Shorthorn News from Around the World

The American Milking Shorthorn Society has a new Executive Secretary in Cory Salzl. Cory has bred Shorthorns under the Corstar prefix in previous years and has significant industry experience to draw upon in this position. He fills the position vacated by David Kendall, who resigned from the AMSS to accept a position with Taurus Sires of Pennsylvania.

Grand Champion at the 2012 World Dairy Expo was Mi-San Acres O Lust, the 1st Place Senior Three Year Old Othello daughter owned by David Riley of Ohio. Reserve Grand Champion honours went to Halpins Reyfene, the 1st Place Five Year Old owned by Halpin Farms of Indiana.

At the Northeastern National Show in Springfield, MA in September 2012, the Grand Champion was Innisfail ST Lady 910-EXP (1st Sr. Three), owned by GMC Farm, NH and John Anderson, NY. Reserve Grand Champion was Innisfail RU Princess 6084 (1st Five Yr), owned by Bartlett & Kostka of Massachusetts. Canadian content at the show included Cedar Creek Logic Skylight 17 winning the Four Year Old class for co-owners GMC Farm of New Hampshire and Doug Wherry and Keith Van Camp of Ontario. Her daughter, GMC-W-V Zeus Skyhigh, also won the Summer Yearling class.

The celebrated and well-known Rodway Dairy Shorthorn herd dispersed in England last May. At the same time, a new breed record at public auction was set with the high seller, Rodway Sonnschein 15 VG-89. A daughter of Kingsdale Libby’s Rebel, she sold for 5,300 guineas to R & S Crank of Chester. Sonnschein previously won the Grand Championship at the Royal Highland Show in 2010.

The New Zealand Milking Shorthorn Association is celebrating the 100th anniversay of Milking Shorthorns in that country later this year. As well, New Zealand recently hosted the World Shorthorn Congress in March 2013.

It has been a tough year in many part of Australia, where extremely low milk prices combined with dry weather have resulted in producers selling herds and fewer breeders participating in shows and breed events. Nonetheless, a number of herds continue to have cows setting new breed records for production and a new Society-sponsored sale in Queenland took place in April. Jason Smith of Baromi Illawarras reports that he got three heifers and one bull out of embryos purchased from Prinsville Dairy Farms, and he is very happy with the calves thus far! 39

Rapport du secrétaire 2013 Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL

Comme chaque année, cette dernière année fut remplie de défis et d’opportunités. Plusieurs producteurs de lait canadiens, particulièrement dans les provinces de l’est, ont subi un été chaud et sec qui a causé un manque de foin. Plusieurs producteurs à qui j’ai parlé ont remarqué que leurs vaches ont bien produit avec des fourrages de qualité mais ils espèrent un printemps hâtif pour ne pas manquer de nourriture. Le manque de fourrages et la plus haute production partout au pays ont créé un marché faible pour les animaux de remplacement, peu importe la couleur. Pour plusieurs éleveurs, ceci représente l’opportunité de prendre des décisions de réforme profitables pour améliorer le mérite général de leur troupeau à un temps où les prix des animaux de remplacement ne sont pas beaucoup plus hauts que les prix de la réforme.

Aussi, le mérite génétique de notre prochaine génération n’a jamais été si bon! CDN a récemment annoncé les ajustements aux changements de base IPV 2013 qui modifiera toutes les valeurs IPV de la race pour prendre en considération les niveaux annuels d’amélioration génétique. Après quelques années sans changements de base significatifs (i.e progrès génétique) la race Shorthorn laitière verra un changement de base de 44 points IPV, comparable aux 50 points pour la race Jersey (avec un programme d’échantillonnage de taureaux plus élaboré et une sélection génomique) et bien plus grande que les changements de base pour les Suisses Brunes, les Guernseys ou les Canadiennes.

Ces niveaux d’amélioration génétiques deviennent aussi très évidents dans la performance des vaches de Deux ans au cours des deux dernières années; ces jeunes vaches dominent les rangs de nos Prix de production supérieure et ont des pourcentages de gras significativement plus hauts que les vaches matures. Ceci est dû en partie à la sélection des taureaux qui ont misé sur la production de gras au cours des dernières années. C’est encourageant de voir les résultats positifs découlant de ces changements dans la sélection; bravo aux éleveurs d’avoir fait leur part pour aider à apporter des améliorations dans les moyennes de production de la race et dans les pourcentage de composantes.

Une autre raison d’avoir foi en notre race est l’augmentation significative des enregistrements au cours de la dernière année. Notre race a enregistré 371 animaux en 2012. Même si ce total est beaucoup plus petit que la plupart des autres races canadiennes et qu’il est loin de ce que nous voudrions, c’est quand même une augmentation de 32 % par rapport aux enregistrements de 2011 et le plus haut total d’enregistrements depuis les 20 dernières années! 40

Il est vrai que quelques troupeaux ont soumis plusieurs enregistrements qui étaient en retard l’an dernier, mais c’est loin d’être la seule raison de l’augmentation de cette année. Aussi, le nombre de transferts était à son plus haut niveau depuis plusieurs années ce qui est significatif du niveau d’intérêt dans l’achat de Shorthorns laitiers. Ceci étant dit, j’encourage tous les éleveurs à garder leurs enregistrements à jour car c’est le moyen le plus économique d’ajouter de la valeur à vos animaux tout en apportant un revenu à la Société pour aider à promouvoir la race!

Un autre fait intéressant fut l’augmentation de l’intérêt international dans la génétique canadienne de Shorthorn laitier. Au cours des 24 derniers mois, les éleveurs canadiens ont vendu des embryons en Australie et aux États-Unis. Nous avons aussi vu les toutes premières exportations d’embryons vers la Nouvelle-Zélande, le Japon et l’Irlande. Au même moment, les taureaux canadiens échantillonnés grâce aux programmes Syndicates de Semex ont vu leur semence exportée vers ces pays ainsi qu’au Royaume-Uni, au Venezuela, au Nigeria et Trinidad & Tobago. Nos systèmes éprouvés de contrôle laitier et de classification, jumelés à la grande qualité et la haute pureté de la génétique, ont rendu les Shorthorns laitiers canadiens intéressants pour plusieurs acheteurs internationaux. C’est une bonne nouvelle pour les éleveurs car c’est une source additionnelle de revenus ainsi qu’une augmentation de la valeur des animaux de reproduction en général.

Le Conseil d’administration de la SCSL a décidé de ne pas faire de vente nationale en 2013 et l’a remplacé par un nouveau service d’inscription appelé le CMSS Marketplace. Nous avons déjà vendu les premiers animaux grâce à ce service à un nouvel acheteur au Québec et j’espère que les éleveurs de partout au pays profiteront de ce service. Nous étudierons la possibilité de tenir une vente nationale dans l’avenir, mais avec le marché lent pour les animaux cet hiver et ce printemps, ainsi que la vente qui se tiendra lors de la Journée champêtre cet été, il semble que la décision de votre Conseil est appropriée jusqu’à maintenant.

J’ai pu visiter Stratford, Ontario en février pour assister, au nom de la Société, à l’édition inaugurale de l’Xpo Laitière Canadienne. Notre kiosque était très bien situé et nous avons eu plus d’interventions avec les producteurs que nous avions espéré. Nous avons donné plusieurs copies du Improver et avons parlé à plusieurs producteurs des avantages de la race. Un merci spécial à la famille Richardson de m’avoir accueilli pendant quelques jours et de m’avoir aidé au kiosque. Merci également à Jim et Judy Snyder de m’avoir aider à tenir le kiosque.

Comme plusieurs le savent, je suis une personne plutôt optimiste qui voit le verre plus souvent à moitié plein qu’à moitié vide. Je suis réaliste et sais que nous continuerons à faire face à plusieurs défis, incluant un petit cheptel, un 41

manque de présence dans plusieurs régions du pays et un manque de sélection génomique pour nos éleveurs. En même temps, j’ai vu une augmentation croissante des membres et du cheptel au cours des récentes années et nous continuons à trouver des éleveurs qui sont intéressés à ajouter des Shorthorns laitiers à leur troupeau. Notre niveau de sélection de taureaux provenant de sources génétiques diverses n’a jamais été aussi élevé et nous continuons à avoir bon nombre d’animaux établissant de nouveaux records de tous les temps.

Le défi que je lance à tous les éleveurs est qu’ils continuent à être des ambassadeurs de la race dans leur région. Imaginez la croissance de la race qui pourrait être possible si la moitié de nos troupeaux était vendue à un nouvel éleveur chaque année! Profitez des services de marketing offerts par la Société et considérez apporter des animaux à l’Exposition nationale à Lindsay, ou à y assister. N’ayez pas peur de parler à vos voisins des raisons pourquoi vous aimez vos Shorthorns. Plusieurs troupeaux au Canada pourraient profiter de la présence bénéfique de Shorthorns laitiers, particulièrement les troupeaux qui visent l’efficacité de production avec les fourrages et le pâturage. Dans une économie où les coûts de l’énergie, de la main-d’oeuvre et des grains sont toujours à la hausse, les Shorthorns laitiers sont définitivement le bon choix pour plusieurs troupeaux canadiens.

Finalement j’espère vous voir en grand nombre lors de la Journée champêtre et l’AGA en juillet à Oceanbrae Farms sur l’Île du Prince Édouard. C’est la toute première Journée champêtre ‘sur l’île’ depuis 1999 et ma famille a très hâte d’accueillir les éleveurs de Shorthorns laitiers pour une visite et pour voir le troupeau. Les Journées champêtres ont longtemps été un bon moyen pour notre race de créer des liens tout en faisant des affaires pour la Société. Si vous avez besoin d’aide dans l’élaboration de vos plans de voyage et pour votre hébergement, n’hésitez pas à m’appeler ou à m’envoyer un courriel.

Mes meilleurs voeux pour une année prospère à tous les éleveurs de Shorthorns!

What sires are you using? We talked with some breeders across Canada to get an idea what traits they emphasize when selecting sires for use in their herd, as well as finding out what sires they have been using recently. We talked to: Diane Naylor, Lady Grove Milking Shorthorns of Kleefeld, Manitoba. Diane farms with her husband Ivan and her sons Will and Phil. They have a mixed herd of Holsteins and Milking Shorthorns, with over 50 Shorthorns in milk. Fred Barrett, Oceanbrae Farms of Belmont, Prince Edward Island. Fred farms with his son Matt, with a mixed herd of primarily Milking Shorthorns (more than 40 in milk). Oceanbrae Farms won the CMSS Master Breeder award in 2009. Dave Prinzen, Prinsville Dairy Farms, Bloomfield, ON. Dave farms with his father Bernard, having a mixed herd of Holsteins, Brown Swiss, and Milking Shorthorns. Dave is the current Vice-President of the CMSS. Don Richardson, Richford Farms, St. Marys, ON. Don and his family have a mixed herd of Milking Shorthorns and Holsteins, with Shorthorns now comprising more than half of the herd. 1. What are the most important traits you consider when choosing sires to use in your herd? Richardson: Milk production, overall type, and fat and protein components are the most important traits I consider. Prinzen: I emphasize all-around conformation, as milk usually comes from sound cows. I also like bulls with a little more style, as we like to do some showing. Barrett: When choosing bulls, I tend to consider production, fat and protein percentages, and well-attached and balanced udders. These traits are the ones that have the greatest influence on the bottom line. Naylor: In a nutshell, we stress production along with good components and type. We pay attention to LPI or Net Merit figures, as well as the depth and strength of the cow family, as we want a cow that produces and stays in the herd for a long time. Type-wise, we pay specific attention to udders, feet and legs, and rumps. 2. What sires have you been using the most recently? Richardson: Oceanbrae Logic’s Plato, Oceanbrae Ironman-P, Clarefield Mocha, and Vinra Bar-D Famous Prinzen: We have used all of the CMSS Syndicate sires (Jack, Plato, Zumba, & Ironman-P). We are also using bulls like GMC Rebel Logic, Mocha, Kundes Golden Logic Adventure, and Treeton Pingerly. We also have a Valleyriver Ruben 43

Redman son of our Starshine cow that we are breeding to a few select animals. Barrett: At the moment, the sires I am using most are Mocha, the SRB bull Pell-Pers, Kulp-Gen Jurist Ace, and Adventure. Naylor: The sires getting the most use recently are Adventure, Ecuafarm Kaiser Royalty, and Mocha, along with some Ace, Logic and Jurist. We do have a cleanup bull, who is a polled Royal Treble son of Rovin Alise Clay Ali-P, the dam of Accent-P. 3. What sires are represented the most in your heifer pens? Richardson: Plato, Famous, Ironman-P, Mapleton Vly J Zumba, and our previous herd sire, Oceanbrae Jack Frost, a full brother to Plato. Prinzen: Ironman-P, Pingerly, Zumba, Logic, Kulp-Gen OK Acdmy Adam-P, B Jurist, and Mysha-WO Robin Nitro. Barrett: Lately, we have registered mostly daughters of Plato, Logic, Ace, and our previous herd sire, Oceanbrae DJ Belmont. We are also starting to get some daughters of our most recent herd sire, Oceanbrae Jurist Pete, a brother to Plato. Naylor: In our younger group, we mostly have daughters of Mocha, Ace, and B Jurist, along with a couple of Adventure calves and a few by herd sires. In the older group, we have heifers by Zumba, Ace, Logic, Jurist, and Mysha-WO Robin Nitro-EXP. 4. What sires have you been the most pleased with in your young cows recently? Richardson: I have been quite impressed with our Plato daughters, largely due to their higher butterfat. A couple of ours have now calved for the second time and I’m very pleased with the way they have matured. We are also milking three Mocha daughters which are very well balanced and flashy with positive production. We are also milking four Lisnamulligan Fairway daughters. They aren’t flashy, but they have improved production over their dams and are good commercial cows. Prinzen: I quite like our two Kulp-Gen Jurist Ace daughters. Although they aren’t the biggest cows, they have beautiful udders (improved over dams) and are the type of balanced cows that will develop over time. Our Jurist daughters are quite milky with spunk, and our Logics are all-around good cows. Storm Ruler has left a few young Very Good cows in the herd as well. We have also used a little of the Red Holstein bull Redman to good effect, as he is leaving beautiful udders along with improved production on select matings. Barrett: We have had very good success with B Jurist. He has left strong, durable cows that produce better than their dams with higher components and functional udders that are wearing well. We have had two EX daughters of Jurist and have a couple more with the potential to go Excellent. Logic has also worked well at Oceanbrae, siring great feet and legs and good overall size and type with extra fat test. Logic doesn’t give as much milk volume, but he does a lot of good things We have now calved in quite a few Plato daughters. They have generally 44

had improved fat over dams with well attached udders and good feet and legs. Some have lacked dairyness, but are quiet, easy to manage cows. We are also milking quite a few daughters of Bar-D Krause’s Fawn’s CD. They are generally big cows with well attached udders but with variable component percentages and below average milking speed. Naylor: Our young cows are sired by quite a few different bulls, but we quite like our first daughters of Mocha and Plato, as well as the Logics and Jurists. Our first milking daughter of Panorama Aramis is also quite nice, scoring 85 points recently.

Distinguished Service Award Mike Sullivan of Maple Inn Farms

The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society is proud to present its Distinguished Service Award to Mike Sullivan of Maple Inn Farms, Peterborough, Ontario. Mike has been a fixture of the Milking Shorthorn breed in Ontario for many years and has served the breed in number of ways. Mike started farming with his father Joseph (a Past-President of the CMSS) in 1964, initially shipping cream before transitioning to ship fluid milk a few years later. The Maple Inn herd was active in the show ring across Ontario, including local shows in Peterborough and Lindsay as well as the CNE and Royal Winter Fair in Toronto and the World Dairy Expo in Wisconsin. Mike lists as one of his showing highlights when Maple Inn Dairymaid 56th EX-95 won Grand Championship honours at the 2008 National Show, with Rosemary also named Reserve Grand in 2009 and 2011. The story of the Maple Inn herd has been built on the strength of cow families, particularly the Dairymaid and Rosemary cow families. For example, Maple Inn Rosemary 33rd VG sits second all time for lifetime milk and fat production among Canadian Milking Shorthorns. Members of the both families have been exported to the United States, and Maple Inn was the first Canadian herd to export embryos to the United Kingdom in the 1990’s. Mike was a director of the CMSS for the best part of 20 years. He was a long time Chairman of the Sale Committee, instrumental in organizing and running the annual National Sales that were held in Peterborough or Lindsay for a number of years. Maple Inn cattle have helped to form the foundation of a number of new Milking Shorthorn herds in Canada and the United States, including one of the 2013 Cow of the Year nominees. Due to health considerations, the Maple Inn herd ceased milk production in 2004 but Mike continues to breed Milking Shorthorns at the farm just south of Peterborough. In receiving this Distinguished Service Award, Mike receives an Honourary Life Membership to the CMSS. 46

UPDATES TO STAR BROOD AND MASTER BREEDER AWARDS Change to Star Brood Calculations: Proven sires can now contribute points for calculation of Star Brood Cow awards. - Proven son with LPI greater than 1200 = 6 points - Proven son with LPI greater than 1350 = 9 points - Proven son with LPI greater than 1500 = 12 points

Change to Master Breeder calculation: With elimination of gold and diamond awards for lifetime production and introduction of Superior Production Awards and new Lifetime Production Awards, these awards need to be accounted for in Master Breeder point accumulation. These awards now contribute in the following ways: - Superior Production Award = 2 points - Lifetime Production Award Level 1 = 2 pts - Lifetime Production Award Level 2 = 4 pts - Lifetime Production Award Level 3 = 6 pts Both Star Brood Awards and the Master Breeder Award are available to be calculated upon request by the breeder. Full information on calculating Master Breeder and Star Brood Cow awards are available online at or contact Ryan for more information.
