Secretary-Manager Report by Ryan Barrett The past year has undoubtedly been a year of change for the Society. The largest of these changes has been transitioning to a new registry service provider at Holstein Canada. Moving our registry service to Holstein Canada in concert with a number of other breeds has been discussed for a number years, but I’m happy to report that we were finally able to make it a reality, with the first new certificates printed by Holstein Canada in early March. In preparation for this transition and the anticipated interruption in service, the Board enacted a moratorium on late registration fees for all of 2015. This allowed us to end our service with CLRC as cleanly as possible and also enabled a number of breeders to get caught up on overage registrations and start fresh in 2016. Due to a surge in registrations received at the end of the year, the Society finished 2015 with our highest number of registrations in more than 20 years! Also encouraging was that the 2015 National Show was the largest since moving our National Show to Lindsay from the Royal in Toronto. I received a number of comments from both exhibitors and spectators that they were impressed with the depth of quality in the classes, and it was great to welcome some new exhibitors to the show as well as having some previous exhibitors return to the show. Thirteen exhibitors showed a total of 52 head, a total that we hope to exceed in future years. Those that know me well will know that I tend to be of an optimistic frame of mind. I’m always trying to find ways to both grow the footprint of our breed in Canada as well as foster genetic improvement of Milking Shorthorns. Later on in this issue of the Improver, you’ll read about some of the genetic improvement strides that the breed has made in recent years, as well as discussing how we can keep improving the breed into the future. When it comes to breed growth, there are encouraging signs. We had a number of first time buyers again in 2015 across the country. Some of these new buyers purchased embryos, hopefully making heifers that will come from non-Shorthorn recipients, thereby growing our population. One of my major frustrations occurs when there is interest in the breed and I am not able to find high quality breeding stock for prospective new buyers. We still have many herds that are very happy with their Shorthorns but who 6

CMSS Improver 2016

are not yet at a point to make breeding stock available. Other herds are not taking advantage of classification and official milk recording services, which limits marketability of breeding stock. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I would encourage existing breeders to consider ways to grow their herds in an effort to foster breed growth. This might involve some use of sexed semen or implanting embryos (made or purchased) in recipients from other breeds. Firstly, having extra female replacement options can allow for more flexibility in voluntary culling, thereby improving the overall quality of your herd. However, everyone that feels a connection to the breed and wishes to see the breed prosper are encouraged to make breed growth a personal challenge. A larger breed population will over time lead to increased sire selection, increased markets for purebred dairy sales, and a stronger genetic base from which to drive genetic improvement. A larger population will most definitely be essential in implementing genomic testing and selection for Milking Shorthorns. I have been active in communicating with industry partners to try and identify ways that we can explore ways to research genomic testing and evaluation for our breed. It is likely that we will have to pool resources with some of our international sister societies as well as testing a large number of females along with males to build a sufficiently large reference population. We have already started to build a bank of hair samples for future testing; moving forward, the goal will be to find ways to access genotypes from other countries as well as helping to fund research and testing to build the reference pool. If you have samples to contribute, please feel free to send them to me for safe keeping in advance of a future project. As always, I want to thank those breeders that find ways to contribute in a myriad of ways to the betterment of the Society. Directors, committee members and individual members from across the country are generous with their time and their financial support of CMSS programs and activities. Your contributions are at the foundation of the breed’s continued success, and I thank you for them! I have heard a number of producers from other breeds who remark that the Milking Shorthorn Society “punches above our weight” in terms of getting positive attention for the breed in the Canadian dairy industry. Let’s hope that we can keep that up and capitalize on that attention by continuing to grow and improve our breed. I continue to be available by phone, text, email, Facebook, Twitter and more if you have questions or concerns. While working for the Society is not my full time job, I enjoy hearing from anyone interested in talking Shorthorns. I look forward to seeing many of you at Society events later this year, and hopefully together we can continue shining a spotlight on the Red, White and Roan! CMSS Improver 2016


Rapport du secrétaire 2016 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL La dernière année fut, sans aucun doute, une année de changements pour la Société. Le plus gros de ces changements a été la transition vers un nouveau fournisseur pour le service d’enregistrement, Holstein Canada. Déplacer notre système d’enregistrement vers Holstein Canada, de concert avec plusieurs autres races, était en discussion depuis plusieurs années, mais je suis content de vous informer que c’est finalement une réalité et les premiers nouveaux certificats ont été imprimés par Holstein Canada au début mars. En vue de cette transition et de l’interruption anticipée du service, le Conseil a mis en place un moratoire sur les frais pour enregistrements tardifs pour toute l’année 2015. Ceci nous a permis de terminer en douceur notre service avec CLRC et a également permis à bon nombre d’éleveurs de se rattraper dans les enregistrements en souffrance et débuter du bon pied en 2016. Grâce à une vague d’enregistrements reçus à la fin de l’année, la Société a terminé 2015 avec le plus grand nombre d’enregistrements en plus de 20 ans! Il fut aussi encouragent de constater que l’exposition nationale 2015 fut notre plus imposante depuis que l’exposition nationale est déménagée à Lindsey plutôt qu’à la Royal à Toronto. J’ai reçu plusieurs commentaires tant des exposants que des spectateurs qui furent impressionnés par la grande qualité des classes. C’était excitant d’accueillir de nouveaux exposants ainsi que de revoir des exposants vétérans, de retour pour l’exposition. Treize exposants ont présenté 52 animaux, un total que nous espérons dépasser dans les prochaines années. Ceux qui me connaissent bien savent que j’ai tendance à être optimiste. J’essaie toujours de trouver de nouveaux moyens d’élargir l’empreinte de la race au Canada tout en nourrissant l’amélioration génétique des Shorthorns Laitiers. Dans cette édition de l’Improver, vous pourrez lire au sujet des avancées de la race en termes d’amélioration génétique au cours des récentes années ainsi que des discussions sur les façons d’améliorer la race dans l’avenir.   Du côté de la croissance de la race, il y a des signes encourageants. Nous avons eu plusieurs nouveaux acheteurs en 2015 de partout au pays. Certains de ces nouveaux acheteurs ont acheté des embryons pour obtenir, espéronsle, des génisses provenant de receveuses autres que Shorthorns et qui aideront à augmenter le cheptel.   Une de mes plus grandes frustrations est lorsqu’il y a de l’intérêt pour la race et que ne suis pas capable de trouver d’animaux de bonne qualité pour ces acheteurs potentiels. Nous avons encore plusieurs troupeaux qui sont satisfaits de leurs Shorthorns mais qui ne sont pas rendus au point d’avoir des animaux à 8

CMSS Improver 2016

vendre. D’autres troupeaux ne prennent pas avantage de la classification et du contrôle laitier officiel ce qui limite la commercialisation de leurs animaux. Au risque de me répéter, j’encourage fortement les éleveurs à considérer d’autres moyens pour élargir leur troupeau dans le but d’augmenter le cheptel de la race. Ça peut être l’utilisation de semence sexuée ou l’implantation d’embryons (produits ou achetés) dans des receveuses d’autres races. Premièrement, avoir des femelles supplémentaires pour le remplacement pourrait donner une option de plus pour la réforme volontaire ce qui augmenterait la qualité générale de votre troupeau. Par contre, tous ceux qui sont attirés par la race et veulent que la race prospère sont encouragés à faire de la croissance de la race un défi personnel. Un cheptel plus imposant augmentera, avec le temps, la sélection de taureaux, augmentera les marchés pour les ventes d’animaux pur-sang et élargira la base génétique avec laquelle améliorer la génétique. Un plus grand cheptel sera définitivement essentiel pour l’implantation du testage génomique et la sélection pour les Shorthorns Laitiers. J’ai communiqué activement avec les partenaires de l’industrie pour essayer d’identifier les méthodes à explorer pour la recherche sur le testage génomique et l’évaluation pour notre race. Il semble vraisemblable que nous aurons à rassembler nos ressources avec certaines de nos sociétés sœurs internationales ainsi que le testage domestique d’un grand nombre de femelles et de mâles pour établir une population de référence assez substantielle. Nous avons déjà commencé à construire notre banque d’échantillons de poils pour un testage futur. Plus tard, le but sera de trouver des façons d’accéder aux génotypes d’autres pays ainsi que de financer la recherche et le testage pour construire notre cheptel de référence. Si vous avez des échantillons à contribuer, n’hésitez pas à me les envoyer pour qu’on les conserve de façon sécuritaire jusqu’à un projet futur. Comme toujours, j’aimerais remercier les éleveurs qui trouvent toutes sortes de façons de contribuer à l’amélioration de notre Société. Les administrateurs, les membres de comités et les membres individuels de partout au pays sont généreux de leur temps et de leur appui financier aux programmes et activités de la SCSL. Vos contributions sont la fondation du succès continu de la race et je vous en remercie! Plusieurs producteurs m’ont dit que la Société des Shorthorns Laitiers joue dans la cour des grands quand on parle de l’attention que la race suscite dans l’industrie laitière canadienne. Espérons que nous pourrons garder le cap et profiter de l’attention pour continuer à agrandir et à améliorer notre race. Je suis toujours disponible par téléphone, texte, courriel, Facebook, Twitter et plus si vous avez des questions. Même si travailler pour la Société n’est pas mon travail à temps plein, j’aime toujours parler de Shorthorn avec des intéressés. J’ai hâte de voir plusieurs d’entre vous aux événements de la Société au cours de la prochaine année et, espérons-le, nous pourrons continuer à faire briller le Rouge, Blanc et Rouan!

President’s Report by David Prinzen, CMSS President Time flies when you are having fun. The years seem to pass so fast as I get older. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 12 months since I last wrote a Presidents Message. We have had a good year as a Society, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank those involved with the CMSS activities this past year. We had a great turn out last July at our Annual Meeting and Field Day hosted by the Edwards family and the Laughlin family in eastern Ontario. I look forward to the AGM and Field day hosted by Ferme Serol this July in Quebec!! I also would like to thank those involved with the Canadian Dairy XPO at the beginning of April. Thanks to Don and Karen Richardson for bringing animals and helping with the event and to Doug and Irene as well for taking time to travel to Stratford and promote our breed. It is always interesting to talk and visit with people who have or are interested in our breed. Another way to promote our breed is to have 4-H calves available to young people who might need a calf for showing. They always notice a calf of colour at 4-H shows and events. As well I would like to thank my fellow directors and our SecretaryManager Ryan. Without every one’s input and feedback, we couldn’t do what we do. It’s great to own some Red White and Roan!!

Change in Purity for GMC Rebel Logic In early 2016, the CMSS Board of Directors made a decision to make a correction to the purity percentage for the popular proven sire GMC Rebel Logic. Under previous herdbook registration rules, Logic qualified to be registered at 91.5% purity. However, under current herdbook registration rules, Logic is able to be registered at 100% purity. Directors felt that upgrading Logic to 100% purity would be a net benefit for Canadian breeders, so Holstein Canada has been informed of this change and purity percentages for Logic’s progeny and grand-progeny are being changed. This will result in a number of Logic daughters increasing in purity percentage, including a number that will be upgraded to purebred (100%). In addition, there are a few sires that have Logic as a sire or grandsire who also increase in purity:

Springville Logic Premium, increased to 100% Kundes Golden Logic Adventure, increased to 91.2% Lady Grove Conrad, increased to 81.3% Koopycrest Anecdote-P, increased to 86.4% purity

New registration papers won’t be automatically issued for animals that have increased in purity due to this change; however, registration papers can be reissued upon request. New purity percentages will be reflected in the pedigree database and will be reflected online at CDN and in our new online database when it becomes available later this year. Canadian Milking Shorthorns are registered at the average purity percentages of their parents. Animals reaching a purity of 15/16ths (93.7) or greater are automatically upgraded to purebred (100%) status. The exception to this comes when an animal has non-breed colouring, such as black or blue roan. In this case, animals with non-breed colour can have a maximum purity percentage of 50%. If any breeders have questions, they can feel free to contact the SecretaryManager, Ryan Barrett.

“Accent-P” named Canadian Cow of the Year for 2015

The 2015 Canadian Milking Shorthorn Cow of the Year is a recordbreaking cow from Prince Edward Island who has been making headlines for the past few years. Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P EX-94-2E is a six year old cow that is the all time Canadian Milking Shorthorn record holder for single lactation fat production after breaking this record in each of the last two years. Fawn has been an extreme producer of fat and protein, with three lactations in a row over 7 percent fat. In her record setting third lactation, Fawn produced 707 kgs of fat in 305 days. Accent-P is also one of only two Milking Shorthorns in Canada classified 94 points or better, is polled, and continues to appear near the top of the breed’s LPI list. Despite still being a relatively young cow, Accent-P has been excelling as a brood cow. Accent-P has two Excellent daughters as well as two Very Good daughters with more young daughters on the way. Accent-P is owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Belmont, Prince Edward 16

Island. She is the product of embryos purchased from the United States out of a Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P, a cow whose progeny have been excelling in Milking Shorthorn far and wide. In fact, Accent-P is a maternal sister to the 2014 Canadian Cow of the Year, Koopycrest Mocha Ali Accent! Fred Barrett, owner of Accent, notes that “she continues to amaze us with the sheer amount of components she produces as well as the quality of her daughters. In this past last lactation, Accent had two monthly milk tests that exceeded 10% for fat, which is unheard of for our breed. We are very honoured to accept this award and look forward to continued success with Accent and her cow family.� The Canadian Cow of the Year Contest is voted on by members of the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society following the publishing of nominated cows earlier in 2015. The other two nominees this year were Prinsville Logic Starshine VG-89, a former National Show Grand Champion owned by Prinsville Farms of Bloomfield, ON, and Lynmark NYS Sandy EX-90-9E, the first Milking Shorthorn to score Excellent 9 times owned by Lynmark Farms of Norwood, ON.

Priorities for Genetic Improvement by Ryan Barrett, CMSS Secretary-Manager Flashback to the year 2000 in the Milking Shorthorn breed: influence of the bull Meriville Peerless and his sons is dominating Canadian pedigrees, and sire availablity leaves a lot to be desired. While the breed is attracting a number of new breeders, genetic improvement is somewhat hampered by the genetic options available. Since I started working with the Milking Shorthorn breed, one of the priorities for breed improvement that I have repeatedly heard from breeders has been improving fat percentage in the breed. In the early 2000’s, the dominant Peerless sire line had a notable downward effect on fat percentages while raising milk production levels. Particularly by the time that Mericrest Outlaw was in heavy use, breed average fat percentages were at an all time low. As noted, the early 2000’s was also a time of limited sire availability, which hindered the ability to improve fat percentages, along with other traits. By 2005, the number of available sires started to increase, and Canadian breeders had more choice for their breeding programs. Relationships with AI units selling semen in Canada were cultivated, and emphasis was placed on importing semen from sires that would address Canadian priorities, particularly components and mammary system improvement. Changes in milk component pricing which favours fat, as well as the implementation of Solids Non-Fat ratio levels in many provinces, has accelerated a move to improve fat percentages for many breeders. As you can see on the graph on the next page, breed average fat percentage has increased for cows born in 2011 by approximately 0.3% in comparison to cows born in 2001. That is a significant level of improvement on a breed-wide basis in that time. Bulls such as Logic, Plato, Jurist, Ace, and Adam-P have all been notably above average for fat percentage while also being above average for conformation. Birth years since 2009 show the most rapid rate of phenotypic increase, and this has also been the period of the fastest improvement in breed average LPIs. Canadian breeders should be commended for their efforts in the past decade or so. During the same period, average first lactation classification scores have remained relatively steady, but the latest five year genetic trend shows an improvement of 0.5 points per year, which is a faster rate than four other breeds. 20

CMSS Improver 2016

Milk production figures have also improved...but not at the same rate of improvement as fat percentage. Average first lactation 305 day milk yield has increased 417 kgs for animals born in 2011 compared to those born in 2001. Genetically, the annual rate of progress for milk and protein in the Milking Shorthorn breed is not much above zero, and needs to be addressed moving forward to ensure that current breeders are seeing genetic progress in their herds while positioning the breed to continue being an attractive option for Canadian dairy producers. Thankfully, genetic improvement can address multiple traits at a time... this is the beauty of our Lifetime Performance Index. By selecting for animals with strong LPI figures, we tend to favour animals that excel for multiple traits, enabling simultaneous progress across multiple traits. Nonetheless, I would encourage breeders to look more closely at milk and protein kgs when making mating decisions. Look at the rate of improvement made with fat in just a few years...what if we could see a breed average milk yield of 8000 kgs with an improvement in protein percentage in the next few years! That is definitely an achieveable target if we keep working together and keep our eyes on the prize! CMSS Improver 2016

Country Report: United States by Junia Isiminger, AMSS Secretary Greetings from the American Milking Shorthorn Society! The year of 2015 was a good one for Milking Shorthorns in the United States. The Society printed the first edition of our Bull Book, a successful National Sale, and we are seeing promising PPR results. In addition, I was able to attend your annual Summer Field Day and visit some of Canadian Milking Shorthorn farms. Our first edition of the AMSS Bull Book was printed and distributed at our National Convention in June. It has proven to be an excellent promotion piece and has been passed out at your Field Day, National Shows and sent to Australia. Thirty-seven bulls are featured, with an additional 47 bulls listed. Featured bulls provide pedigree information and contact information to obtain semen. Listed bulls provide just bull name and contact information to purchase semen. We will be printing the Bull Book annually. It has already provided to be very valuable to our breeders in making mating decisions and purchasing semen. The 2015 Annual Meeting and National Sale was held in Black River Falls, Wisconsin in June. The sale had a total of 64 lots cataloged, including one pick of the herd, two choice females and four embryo lots. The top selling lot was a pick of 8 females out of Innisfail WO Lady Luck x Innisfail Perfect Storm selling for $9,700. The 53 live lots averaged $2,860, with the high selling lot being Mysha-WO McCinnamon, a Sr. 3 year old consigned by Mysha Herd and Katie Bue, purchased by Todd Thomas for $8,750. The 2015 National Sale was the highest grossing sale in the history of AMSS National Sale. The 2016 Annual Meeting and National Sale is scheduled for June 15-18, 2016 in Dublin, Ohio. The sale already has an impressive lineup of lots. The American Milking Shorthorns had an impressive year in the show ring. We had our first Jim King Triple Crown Winner. To win this prize, one cow had to win the Grand Champion title at three out of the four National Shows in the same show season. Winning the title of Grand Champion at the Eastern National (All-American Dairy Show), International (World Dairy Expo) and Winter National (NAILE) was Cate’s Ruben Tulsa Time, owned and bred by Peter Cate of New Hampshire. Pete’s history with this cow family is deep. His parents bought the foundation cow of this great “T” family in 1967 and they have continued to develop this family for almost 50 years. 24

CMSS Improver 2016

The Grand Champion of the North Eastern National Show (Big E) was Heavenly Betty, owned by Ryan Rida of Worthington, Massachuttes. Betty was bred by Heavenly Show Cattle of Monroe, Wisconsin. From the April 2016 genetic evaluations, the number one PPR bull in the United States is a B Jurist son, Ecuafarm BJ Don Juan, followed by Echo Farm T-Bruno Plutonium at #2 and GE Kulp-Gen PJ Cowboy-ET at #3. We are starting to see a resurfacing of more full herdbook bulls at the top of the PPR list, with 5 being full herdbook followed closely by 12 bulls being 50% Milking Shorthorn and 9 being 75% Milking Shorthorn. Top full herdbook bulls include Echo Farm Taser Motown, Echo Farm Ted McCoy ET, Clayside Milk Money, Kundes Golden Logic Adventure and Echo Farm Beautys KS Conquest. In July, I was honored to spend a weekend in your country attending your Field Day and visiting three additional Milking Shorthorns breeders with my husband, Mike. Attending your event taught me that Canadian breeders are interested in knowing which American bulls are exportable and what their purity percentages are. Following my visit, I am working with several breeders on exploring the possibility of getting more of our bulls exportable. The AMSS is committed to working on facilitating this process to help United States breeders who develop bulls and Canadian breeders who want United States genetics. While in Canada, we also visited Lynmark Farms, Prinsville Farms and Laralor Milking Shorthorns. A special thank you to those breeders for welcoming us and taking time to talk cows. My husband and I were quite impressed with your Canadian Milking Shorthorns. Looking into 2016, the American Milking Shorthorn Society is exploring the possibility of adding percentages to registrations, continuing to work on exportable bulls and increasing our promotion of the Milking Shorthorn breed. We continue to have new owners of Milking Shorthorns and increased interest in our Native Milking Shorthorns. The future is bright for our breed! Finding Joy in the Journey with the Red, White and Roan,

Country Report: United Kingdom by Frank Milnes, Secretary, Shorthorn Society of the UK The dairy industry here in the UK is suffering like everyone else from the global downturn in milk price. The abolition of milk quotas in 2015 by the EU has also led to producers seeking to expand to maintain their income and this of course has the negative effect of worsening the oversupply problem and keeping the milk price low. The only positive thing to come out of this is that when the milk price is low then producers have to look very closely at the cost of production and the Dairy Shorthorn can certainly produce milk very efficiently. A recent survey carried out by a veterinary practice in Wales showed that in a study of 34 farms which milk record with NMR, the Shorthorns produced the highest yield of milk per cow per year of life. This emphasise the fact that the highest lactation yields do not necessarily mean the highest daily yield as the cows have to get back in calf and produce for many lactations. Our challenge as ever is in convincing other people that profitability is about yield per cow per day of life minus the costs of keeping the cow. Considering the state of the dairy industry we are very fortunate to have maintained our pedigree registrations and in 2015 actually increased the number of registrations by a small amount. The registration income combined with the income from the sales of semen have ensured that the Society has again returned a reasonable profit from its yearly activities. The success of Red Cattle Genetics can be seen from the fact that of the last four young bulls selected for semen collection to have returned a proof, three of them returned a positive £PLI proof. During the last twelve months, the Society has been debating whether or not the Coates’s herdbook should now be closed to outside blood. The percentage of pure shorthorn blood in animals registered in the herdbook has gradually decreased over the last 10 years and there was a strong feeling that we now have a much improved Dairy Shorthorn animal. The introduction of outside blood has increased the dairyness, milk yield and conformation of the Dairy Shorthorn but we do not want to lose the important functional traits which set the Dairy Shorthorn apart from the other breeds. Closing the herdbook would consolidate the improvements made and retain the important Shorthorn traits of fertility, longevity, and mobility. Council decided therefore after consultation with the members that from January 1st 2018 cattle will be registered in Coates’s herdbook dairy with no 26

CMSS Improver 2016

percentage purity displayed. All cattle registered before that date will retain their percentage purity so that anyone wishing to research the pedigrees can still calculate the percentage purity if they so wish. I am leaving at the end of March to attend the World Shorthorn Conference in Uruguay. This Conference encompasses both Beef and Dairy Shorthorn societies and whilst there will be few Dairy Shorthorns in Uruguay I do think it is very important for the organisations to be able to come together every three years for a tour of Shorthorn herds and a Conference where each country and organisation can report on what is happening in their part of the world. We do import and export large quantities of semen and it is always very interesting to see the different genetics at work in different parts of the world. On top of that the opportunity to meet and socialise with people who share an interest in Shorthorn cattle is a wonderful experience.

Country Report: Australia by Michael Tuhan, Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia Total milk production in Australia has increased over the last 5 years from just over 9 billion litres to over 9.7 billion litres in 2014/15. This is still considerably lower than the industry highs of around 11 billion litres in the late 90’s. The Illawarra breed represents just over 1% of the population of dairy cows on herd recording. Holsteins are by far the dominant breed numerically, accounting for around 2/3 of the population. However, while production per cow has increased, fertility has declined, leading to increased interest in alternative breeds such as the Illawarra for pure breeding and/or cross-breeding. The introduction of Red Holstein and Scandinavian bloodlines into the Illawarra breed from the early 90’s has led to significant production increases within the breed. However, with dairy producers increasingly looking at alternatives to the Holstein, the Illawarra Cattle Society (ICSA) has recognised the need to preserve traits (e.g. longevity, calving ease, temperament etc) that differentiate it from the major breeds. For this reason the ICSA has made some policy changes in the last few years in an effort to help preserve the breeds identity as a genuine alternative. Firstly the ICSA showing policy has been changed such that animals sired by Holstein, Ayrshire or European Red Breeds that were born from 2012 are no longer eligible to be shown in the Illawarra show ring. However, it should be noted that not all shows have strictly enforced this policy at this point in time. Secondly, the Illawarra Development Program (IDP) committee, which is responsible for managing the genetic direction of the breed, has set a minimum threshold of 37.5% Illawarra content for bulls to be endorsed for commercial A.I. collection. The IDP committee is currently actively working with 4 major artificial breeding companies in the selection process for bulls entering A.I. and so has a major role in driving the genetic progress and direction of the breed within Australia. The success of Treeton Pingerly daughters both in Australia and also in Canada, New Zealand and the U.K. has seen the committee look for quality sons of this great sire for the next generation, so watch out for two young bulls both from EX classified dams that will become available in 2016! 28

2015 Field Day and AGM: Kolson & Laughlin Herds, Ontario

On July 26th, the CMSS Field Day was hosted by two herds in the Ottawa Valley of Ontario. The first visit of the day was in the morning to the Kolson herd of Stephen and Janet Edwards and family of Cobden. The Edwards purchased their first Milking Shorthorn less than a decade ago, and now have a small but growing number of Shorthorns in their majority Holstein herd. One of their first purchases went Excellent (Shady Brae Lace, by Outlaw), and they currently have two daughters and four grand-daughters of this first herd favourite. During our visit, daughters of Nitro and Zumba were notable, as well as a yearling heifer by Ironman who would go on to win the Junior Championship at the National Show in September. We then moved on to Laughlin Farms in Kinburn, a little less than an hour down the road. This was the second time the Laughlins have hosted the Field Day, and their hospitality was once again outstanding. Brian also started with Milking Shorthorns a little more than ten years ago, but the herd is now comprised completely of registered Milking Shorthorns. Brian’s son Lennie is now taking over day-to-day management of the farm, but Brian is continuing to play an active role. Following a barbeque lunch, Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett handed out production awards from the past year. The 2015 Cow of the Year Award was also presented to Oceanbrae Farms for Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P EX-94. The Annual Meeting was then held, with a strong turnout of members and invited guests in attendance. One guest, AMSS Secretary Junia Isiminger, brought greetings from south of the border and distributed some new promotional materials featuring the new AMSS logo. Topics discussed at the AGM included the upcoming movement of registry service to Holstein Canada, as well as details for the upcoming National Show in September. Following the AGM, guests toured the Laughlin herd. Some daughters of Mocha stood out, as well as couple of young daughters of Ironman-P.

2015 National Sale Report The 2015 National Sale once again provided some high quality Milking Shorthorn genetics, with a total of nine live animals and two embryo lots selling. The sale was held on September 4th, 2015 using the remote sale format that has proved successful in previous years. High seller was Northmark Alicia, a Logic heifer out of Lady Grove Mocha Alice 12 that was consigned by the partnership of Lynmark Farms and Northend Milking Shorthorns. Alicia was purchased outright for $4000 by Brodie and Brenda Cupples of Errington, British Columbia. Second high seller was Richford Pingerly Lesly, a Three Year Old cow due in October 2015 for her second calf. Consigned by the Richardsons of Richford Farm in St. Marys, Ontario, Lesly was purchased for $3700 by Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, Prince Edward Island. Nine live animal lots averaged $2689 per consignment. When adding two embryo consignments, the overall sale average was $2532 per consignment. This is the highest National Sale average in many years for the Society.

New Zealand Milking Shorthorn Report by Ross Soffe, President, NZMSA As we approach the end of the season, low commodity prices continue to have a negative effect on cashflows for a second season, and a tough year with a wet cold spring and a very hot summer has led to lower production for most. Hopefully next season will see that lift in commodity prices we are waiting for. Our young Milking Shorthorn bulls have sold good numbers of straws with slow growth in sales. This spring, we are only marketing two new young bulls, one of which is a white bull by Brecon Harold out of a cow by the Red Holstein sire Cedric Red. Our Breed Scheme bulls are marketed by Semex, while Livestock Improvement Corp. also has good bulls available to a wider market. The bull Brecon Encore has produced good daughters, and Northbrook Bishop has good type, production and breeding indexes. Of the overseas bulls, Treeton Pingerly has produced some outstanding type and production daughters. The Canadian bulls Plato and Ironman now have daughters in milk. Their daughters are average size with very good type and with snug udders, but only average production. Mostly they will be calving at 24 months. so we think next years production should be better.
