President’s Report by Don Richardson, CMSS President Let me introduce myself. I farm just outside St. Marys, Ontario. I’m married to my wife Karen, with two children named Riley and Sheldon. We milk 45 cows in a tie stall barn, and rotationally pasture in the summer months. I bought my first two Milking Shorthorns in a dispersal sale in 2002. I liked them so well that I gradually switched the herd over to Milking Shorthorns. There’s a great group of people involved with the Milking Shorthorn breed, with a desire to help new breeders start up. I’d like to share one of my experiences in the breed that illustrates the great community of breeders that I’ve found in our breed. A few years ago, I ordered Treeton Pingerly semen from Semex. I found out later that Fred Barrett ordered Pingerly semen the same day and that there wasn’t enough to fill both orders, so they were going to split what they had between the two of us. Fred said, “no, give Don what he ordered and I’ll take what’s left”. Fast forward a few years, and Fred helped set up a new breeder in PEI who wanted a number of quality Milking Shorthorn cows. However, this runs Fred a little short of milk. I happened to have some heifers to sell, so I picked three from the top of the herd, just as other Milking Shorthorn breeders have done when I bought from them. Two of the heifers I sold to Fred just happened to be Pingerly daughters. After they calved out, each of the Pingerly daughters classified Very Good. I’m very pleased with the outcome, as in the end, Fred got two Very Good Two Year Olds and a new breeder got set up in our breed! Looking forward in seeing everyone at the CMSS Field Day on July 29 in Prince Edward County!

Secretary-Manager Report 2017 by Ryan Barrett One of aspects of my work with the Society that I truly enjoy is having the chance to talk to Milking Shorthorn breeders from across the country. This may be a short interaction to answer a question or help sort out a registry issue, or it could be a longer conversation about the breed, about how things are going on their farm or with their family. Recently, I had a conversation with a long time Milking Shorthorn breeder who remarked that “I think that Milking Shorthorns have been the best kept secret of the dairy industry for a while...but that secret is starting to get out.” I agree. The same week, I was touring herds of another breed. While I knew most of the people on the tour quite well, we didn’t often talk about Shorthorns, because they are justifiably passionate about their breed. Nonetheless, I had a number of unsolicited conversations about Milking Shorthorns that day, including a couple of discussions with breeders interested in how they could add some red, white and roan to their herds. That’s a great day in my view! Last November, the Serol herd from Quebec dispersed, with about thirty head of Milking Shorthorns selling. While there is a definite sadness in losing passionate breeders like Serge and Carole from the breed, dispersal sales of quality herds can often result in growth of the breed. In this case, we have gone from having only a few herds in Quebec with Milking Shorthorns to more than a dozen! The challenge will be to foster these new herds to increase the likelihood that they will continue with the breed. There continues to be growth in the breed, with interest from new buyers in different parts of the country. However, to be able to support growth, we need to have a stronger base to grow from. There have been multiple times in the past few years when I have had producers interested in adding a few Milking Shorthorns to their herd, but I have been 6

CMSS Improver 2017

unable to source quality genetics at the right age and stage for their needs. It’s always frustrating to pass up an opportunity to get someone new introduced to the breed...but they need to start with quality cattle to ensure a positive experience. This brings me to a point which I know that I’ve talked about in previous articles: the need to grow the breed from within. We have grown our membership significantly in recent years, but the number of cattle on milk recording, classified, or registered per year hasn’t necessarily grown at the same rate. We have a number of members who quite like their Milking Shorthorns, but who only have a handful of cows. My challenge is to figure out how to get the producer with one or two Milking Shorthorns to add a couple more. How do we get the herd with ten cows to grow to twenty? I plan to reach out to members in the coming months to ask some of these questions and listen to what you have to say. A couple of tools that I know would have significant impact on growing the base of our breed are embryo transfer and sexed semen. Through embryo transfer, producers have the opportunity to implant Milking Shorthorn embryos in cows of other breeds using high quality genetics that might not always be available to purchase in your area. There are a number of breeders in Canada who flush cows each year, and I’m sure that several would be willing to consider custom flushes to mutually agreeable sires. While sexed semen hasn’t been as widespread in our breed than in others, we will try and identify when sexed inventories are available, and we will continue to work with AI units to consider making more sexed Milking Shorthorn semen. I continue to consider it a privilege to work with the Milking Shorthorn breed and with the members of our Society. I hope that together we can continue to succeed in growing and improving our breed each year!

Rapport du secrétaire 2017 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL L’un des aspects de mon travail que j’apprécie vraiment avec la Société est d’avoir la chance de parler aux éleveurs Shorthorn Laitier de partout au pays :depuislesinteractionscourtespourrépondreàunequestionouaiderà résoudre un problème d’enregistrement aux conversations plus longues sur la race, sur la manière dont les choses se passent sur leur ferme ou avec leur famille. J’ai récemment eu une conversation avec un éleveur de longue date de Shorthorn laitier qui m’a dit : « Je pense que les Shorthorns Laitier sont le secret le mieux gardé de l’industrie laitière depuis un certain temps... mais ce secret est en train de se savoir.  » Je suis d’accord. La même semaine, je visitais des troupeaux d’une autre race, et même si je connaissais assez bien la plupart des gens présents à la visite, on ne parle pas souvent des Shorthorn, parce qu’ils sont passionnés par leur race, ce que je peux comprendre. Ce jour-là, j’ai toutefois eu un certain nombre de conversations spontanées sur les Shorthorns Laitier, notamment avec des éleveurs intéressés par la manière dont ils pourraient ajouter des rouge, blanc et rouan à leurs troupeaux. Ça, c’est un grand jour! En novembre dernier, le troupeau québécois Serol a été dispersé; il y avait une trentaine de sujets Shorthorn Laitier à vendre. Même si nous sommes tristes de perdre des éleveurs passionnés comme Serge et Carole, les ventes de dispersion de troupeaux de qualité peuvent souvent entraîner la croissance de la race. Dans ce cas, nous sommes passés de seulement quelques troupeaux de Shorthorn Laitier au Québec à plus d’une douzaine! Le défi sera d’encourager ces nouveaux troupeaux pour augmenter les chances qu’ils continuent avec la race. La croissance de la race continue, avec l’intérêt de nouveaux acheteurs de différentes régions du pays. Mais, pour pouvoir soutenir la croissance, nous avons besoin d’avoir une base plus solide. Au cours des années passées, il m’est arrivé plusieurs fois de rencontrer des producteurs qui voulaient rajouter quelques Shorthorns Laitier à leur troupeau, mais je n’ai pas pu trouver de la 8

CMSS Improver 2017

génétique de qualité au bon âge et au stade qui correspondaient à leurs besoins. C’est toujours frustrant de laisser passer une occasion d’introduire une autre personne dans la race... mais ils doivent démarrer avec des animaux de qualité pour avoir une expérience positive. Ceci m’amène à un point dont j’ai déjà parlé dans de précédents articles : la nécessité de développer la race de l’intérieur. Nous avons sensiblement augmenté le nombre de nos membres ces dernières années, mais le nombre d’animaux sous contrôle laitier, classifiés ou enregistrés chaque année n’a pas nécessairement augmenté au même rythme. Il y a un certain nombre de membres qui aiment bien leurs vaches Shorthorn Laitier, mais qui en possèdent seulement quelques-unes. Mon défi est de trouver un moyen pour que le producteur qui possède une ou deux Shorthorns Laitier en ajoute deux de plus. Comment faire passer un troupeau de dix à vingt vaches? Dans les prochains mois, j’ai l’intention de vous contacter, nos membres, pour vous poser certaines de ces questions et écouter ce que vous avez à dire. Je sais que des outils comme le transfert d’embryons et la semence sexée auraient un impact significatif sur la croissance de la base de notre race. Le transfert d’embryon permet aux producteurs d’implanter des embryons Shorthorn Laitier chez des vaches d’autres races en utilisant de la génétique de haute qualité qui ne serait peut-être pas toujours disponible dans votre région. Chaque année, un certain nombre d’éleveurs canadiens récoltent des embryons sur leurs vaches, et je suis certain que plusieurs autres seraient disposés à envisager des récoltes d’embryons à forfait pour des taureaux sur lesquels ils s’accorderaient mutuellement. Même si la semence sexée n’est pas aussi répandue dans notre race que dans d’autres, nous allons essayer d’identifier lorsque des inventaires de semence sexée sont disponibles, et nous allons continuer à travailler avec les unités d’IA pour étudier la possibilité de produire davantage de semence sexée de Shorthorn Laitier. Pour moi, c’est toujours un privilège de travailler avec la race Shorthorn Laitier et avec les membres de notre Société. J’espère que nous pourrons continuer à réussir à faire grandir et améliorer notre race chaque année! CMSS Improver 2017

“Accent-P” breaks her own Single Lactation Fat Record

Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P, a mature cow from Oceanbrae Farms in Prince Edward Island, has set a new record for fat production in a single lactation for Canadian Milking Shorthorns. In fact, Accent-P has broken her own previous record by 100 kg of fat! In a 305 day lactation starting at 6 years and 10 months of age, Accent-P produced 807 kg of fat, eclipsing her previous record of 707 kg of fat produced as a four year old cow in 2014. This equates to more than 2.6 kg of fat produced per day, more than double the breed average for Milking Shorthorns! Accent’s complete fifth lactation record in 305 days was 10,789 kg of milk, 807 kg of fat at 7.5%, and 378 kg of protein at 3.5%. Accent-P has proven to be an exceptional cow in many ways. As evidenced by her name, she is naturally polled. As well, she’s classified Excellent 94-3E, one of the highest classified Milking Shorthorns in Canada. She has had a total of twelve daughters, naturally and by embryo transfer, and was named Canadian Cow of the Year in 2015. Her owners, Fred and Matthew Barrett of Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, Prince Edward Island, continue to marvel at her exceptional production. According to Fred, “her fat production continues to be impressive. She has had several monthly fat tests with over 10 percent fat, figures unheard of in our breed. She has now produced over 3500 kg of fat in five lactations, when many cows would take nine or ten lactations to produce the same amount.” Accent-P is the product of an imported embryo from the United States sired by Bar-D Krause’s Fawn’s C.D. Her dam is Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P, a former National Show Champion who has had a significant impact on the Milking Shorthorn breed around the world. 14

Sale Report: Ferme Serol Dispersal Roxton Falls, QC - November 1st, 2016 Serge Girard and Carole Beauregard were still relatively new Milking Shorthorn breeders when they made the decision to disperse their herd in November 2016; however, they have made a big impact on the breed in their decade breeding Milking Shorthorns. This culminated with winning the Clydagh Trophy for the top BCA herd average in Canada in 2015, as well as hosting a very successful AGM and Field Day in July 2016. As a result of their successful herd dispersal, their impact on the breed will continue in Quebec and elsewhere, including with a number of new Milking Shorthorn owners! A total of 29 head of all ages sold for an average of $2,026. Fourteen cows averaged a very strong $2,571, while five bred heifers averaged $1,990 and ten calves averaged $1,280. The high seller on the day was Serol Sam Souris VG-86, a third lactation Blissful Diamond Sam daughter from the “Scarlett” family that had numerous family members sell on the day. Souris sold for $4,100 to Ferme des Chamois of Farnham, Quebec. Second high seller was Serol Dutch Abrielle GP-83, a first lactation Sunshine Moneys Dutch heifer with a sweet udder that sold for $3,600 to Ferme Brittania, a noted Canadienne herd from St-Valerien, Quebec. Third high seller was Serol Sam Ayelle VG-85, a second lactation Diamond Sam daughter from the “Ina” cow family that descended from Quality Ina. Ayelle sold for $3,500 to Yvan Paquette of Stanbridge-Est, Quebec. The high selling bred heifer was Serol Morris Angel, sired by homebred sire Serol Adventure Morris and carrying an embryo out of original brood cow Oceanbrae Sassy Scarlett. Angel sold for $2,500 to Oceanbrae Farms of Belmont, PEI. High selling calf was Serol Dutch Aryelle, daughter of Sam Ayelle. She sold for $2,000 to Ferme Roger & Ginette Ferland of Stanstead, Quebec. The sale featured a total of 18 different buyers, 14 of which are first time buyers of Milking Shorthorns, and 14 of which are in Quebec. This bodes well for the future of the breed in the province of Quebec!

Genetic Expansion in Canadian Milking Shorthorns: The History and the Reality Today

by Ryan Barrett

The current membership of the Milking Shorthorn breed in Canada is dominated by breeders who are relatively new to our wonderful breed. This is encouraging, as they are breeders who have chosen to breed Milking Shorthorns based on their merit as efficient, durable, and productive, and profitable dairy cattle rather than simply carrying on a family history with the breed. Conversely, many of these newcomers to the breed may be less familiar with some of the recent history of the breed, particularly the embracing of genetic expansion for the survival and growth of the breed. Therefore, let’s take a look at where we’ve come from, where we are today, and the future for Milking Shorthorns in Canada. As most breeders would know, the Milking Shorthorn breed that we know today developed from a dual purpose history. From the very beginnings of the Shorthorn breed in the late 1700’s, lines were established within the breed that emphasized milk production as well as beef production. For many years, breeders emphasizing dairy Shorthorn genetics in Canada were organized under the Dual Purpose Shorthorn Society, while all Shorthorns were registered in the same herdbook. At one time, Shorthorn dairy cattle were a common sight in many parts of Canada. Following World War II and a move toward farm specialization and consolidation that continues today, the versatile Dual Purpose Shorthorn fell out of favour, with dairy producers favouring the high production of Holstein cattle, bred only to produce milk. As the number of herds with Dual Purpose cows reduced across the country, the genetic base of the breed also contracted. With a smaller genetic base, it is harder to identify the top genetics to breed for desired traits without becoming a victim of inbreeding. In the late 1970’s and 1980’s, dairy-type Shorthorn breeders around the world began exploring options for outside blood that would 20

enable the breed to modernize and emphasize milk production while retaining many of the traits that have made Shorthorns a durable and efficient breed for years. American Milking Shorthorn breeders embarked on their genetic expansion trajectory a bit earlier than their Canadian counterparts, with Milking Shorthorn genetics from New Zealand and Illawarra genetics from Australia being imported as early as the 1960’s. While these genetics were not 100% descended from the Coates Herdbook, they were Shorthorn-dominant genetics bred for milk production that helped start a wave of modernization in North America. This was followed by use of the Norwegian Red bull K Schie, who brought significant yield improvements to the breed. These genetics made their way north of the border into Canada with some time delay, as most Illawarra semen at the time could not be imported into Canada, but Illawarra-influenced Milking Shorthorns from the USA were routinely brought across the border. By the 1980’s, a number of breeders also began to incorporate some Red Holstein genetics into their breeding programs, particularly through the use of Glenafton Enhancer and Hanover Hill Triple Threat. Sons and grandsons of these bulls would go to AI in Canada, the United States and Australia, and would have immediate impact on the breed. Other Red Holstein sires would also be used; however, cattle still needed to be 75% purity to show in Canada and the USA, so Shorthorn genetics still tended to dominate, and animals would often be crossed back to a

100% pure bull after a Red Holstein sire was used. At the end of the 1980’s, Dual Purpose Shorthorns changed their name in Canada to Milking Shorthorns, to reflect the new reality and genetic focus of the breed. At the same time, massive improvements to both the productivity and dairy conformation of the breed were taking place. From 1989 to 1999, average 305 day milk production in Canada increased by more than 33%, a fantastic rate of improvement. At the same time, cows were being bred with better udders, improved persistency of production, and more angularity than cows of previous generations. A combination of outcross genetics, primarily from the United States with Illawarra and Holstein influence, as well as 100% genetics that still featured strong production levels like Pinehurst Rebel 9th and Meriville Peerless, fundamentally changed the nature of our breed. In the early 2000’s, Canadian breeders suffered from a lack of AI sire options. American genetic companies were testing fewer Milking Shorthorn sires, and many that were sampled couldn’t be exported to Canada; the same with genetics from other Shorthorn populations. Canadian breeders had no domestic young sire program, so selection suffered. Due in part to this lack of selection, as well as over-use of some sires that were not genetically superior, production levels stagnated in the mid-2000’s. However, by the late 2000’s, sire selection had grown significantly, and rates of genetic improvement have also recuperated. As well, a number of breeders have made wise use of embryo transfer to improve the genetic merit of their own herds by multiplying the influence of their best females. This review of recent Milking Shorthorn history allows me to circle back to the topic of genetic expansion. Without the infusion of new genetics from genetic expansion programs, I am positive that the Milking Shorthorn breed would be functionally extinct in Canada today. It has modernized a breed while allowing us to retain so much of what makes Milking Shorthorns unique and desirable. As many breeders will say, today’s Milking Shorthorn is not your grandfather’s Dual Purpose Shorthorn. Our breed has the lowest inbreeding rate of any dairy breed in Canada...a notable feat for a breed with a comparatively small popu22

CMSS Improver 2017

lation. At the same time, it is important to find balance in breeding philosophy and in genetic expansion. The breed needs to retain breed identity, breed character, and the durability and functionality that set it apart from other breeds. There is a need for a range of genetics to allow for progress without detrimental inbreeding depression. Many new breeders mention to me that they are frustrated by the lack of 100% purity sire options, as they would like to use purebred sires as much as possible. This is quite understandable, given the reality of pure breeding in our other major dairy breeds. In Holstein or Jersey circles, animals at less than 100% purity are usually not looked upon the same way, and are not often considered for honours, the show ring, or sire selection. This is not the case in the Milking Shorthorn breed. We continue to require than females must be 75% purity or higher to show or to be recognized with production awards from our Society, but cattle at various levels of purity can still be profitable, a pleasure to work with, and strong foundational stock from which to build herds on. As a result of our breed’s embracing of genetic expansion, particularly in the past 30 years, it will be less common to see 100% purebred sires being offered by AI organizations. Our Society will continue to search for a diversity of genetics which include higher purity pedigrees. Nonetheless, I feel it would be unwise to discount sires with lower purity percentages simply because of that number. If a breeder choses only to use bulls with purity levels over 87%, for example, they would be dealing with a very small subset of available sires, and they may miss out on some top genetics that still have a majority of Milking Shorthorn genes, but that are definitely not “purebred” by conventional standards. Compared to other Shorthorn populations, Canadian Milking Shorthorns tend to be at a higher purity level. This may be a benefit to our breeders as breeders in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States look for high quality genetics that allow them to consolidate the “Shorthorn” identity of their respective populations. I will admit that currently there are fewer high purity (greater CMSS Improver 2017


than 75%) sire options available through AI than I would prefer. This presents a challenge for us to work together with our international Societies to ensure that a range of genetics are selected in sire programs, not just multiple bulls from Grand Champion show cow or bulls where Shorthorn/Illawarra genetics are in the minority. At the same time, some of these outcross sires may work very well on high purity cows, balancing milk production with component percentages, functional conformation, longevity, fertility, and health traits. I continue to be encouraged by the new producers being attracted to our breed by the merits of the breed itself. The breed continues to make in-roads with dairy producers emphasizing feed efficiency, animal health, longevity of production, and milk quality. I want to do whatever I can to foster continued growth and breed improvement, so I felt it important to provide some context on how far our breed has come, as well as empowering our next generation of Milking Shorthorn breeders to capitalize on all of the genetic resources available to breed dairy cattle that make you money while being a pleasure to work with. It continues to be great to own the Red, White and Roan!

2016 Field Day and AGM: Ferme Serol, Quebec It has been quite a few years since the Field Day was held in Quebec, and with Serge Girard and Carole Beauregard indicating that they were planning a herd dispersal for later in the year, there was no time like the present to hold the Society’s biggest social event and Annual Meeting in La Belle Province. While July 23rd was a rainy day in Roxton Falls, those in attendance didn’t let that dampen any spirits. A big crowd of breeders from Quebec, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and the United States attended along with a number of local dairy producers and friends of the Girard/Beauregard family. The day started with a tour of the Serol herd, which served as an advanced viewing in preparation for their dispersal sale in November. Many of the out-of-province guests were not fluent in French, but a number of bilingual guests were very helpful in helping to translate conversations throughout the day. Serge and Carole also put together a fun herd trivia game for guests to complete as they viewed the herd, which featured six different breeds, with Holsteins and Milking Shorthorns being the most numerous. Following a lovely catered buffet lunch, a lively fun auction was held, with Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett assuming auctioneer duties in both official languages...and some mixture of the two! This was followed by presentation of production awards and an official welcome from our hosts Serge and Carole. While they remarked that it was bittersweet to be saying farewell to the dairy industry this fall, they have loved their time with the Milking Shorthorn breed, and they hope that they have been able to raise the exposure of the breed in Quebec. The major business from the Annual General Meeting involved approval of a number of small bylaw amendments related to registration rules, stemming from service provision moving to Holstein Canada. AMSS Secretary Junia Isiminger brought greetings from the American Society, and Annie Cote brought greetings from Holstein Canada. There was also significant discussion about how to raise the profile of the breed in Quebec, with a number of good ideas presented on making headway on issue. Our thanks to Serge and Carole and their families for hosting us last summer, and we hope to be returning to Quebec for a Field Day again soon! 30

Milking Shorthorns and Robots Lady Grove Milking Shorthorns, Kleefeld, MB

Milking Shorthorns in the new robotic milking system at Kleehaven Holsteins / Lady Grove Milking Shorthorns As their herd size has grown in the past few years, the Naylor family of Kleefeld, Manitoba have made investments in new facilities and new technology to accommodate their growing herd of Milking Shorthorns and Holsteins. While some cows are milked in their original tie-stall barn, the majority of the herd is milked in a free-stall facility nearby. Last year, they decided that their older swing-14 milking parlour would need to be replaced. After significant research, viewing other nearby operations, and considering that they have found it difficult to access reliable help for milking, the Naylors settled on purchasing two De Laval robot milking systems. “We really liked the scope of information that the robots could provide us on our cows, in order to better manage the herd,� notes Diane Naylor in reference to making the decision to introduce robots. Ivan and Diane’s son Philip manages the free-stall barn, so he had significant input on the type of robot to install. They went with De Laval for a number of reasons, including the teat cleaning system, the comprehensive software program, the proximity in Manitoba to a local dealer, and the ability to milk a cow manually if the need arises. The robots were installed in the summer of 2016, with the robot starting to milk on August 10th. They finished milking in the parlour at 8:00 am, and by 8:30 the parlour was already being dismantled. By 11 am, they were starting to move cows into the robots. It was a lengthy process, as each cow had to 36

CMSS Improver 2017

be entered into the robot, identified, have the feed manger and bum board customized to the cow, followed by teaching the robot where that cow’s teats were. There wasn’t a lot of sleep for the first few days, but it was a necessary process to ensure success with the robots. The Naylors have noticed significant advantages for their operation in introducing the robots. Firstly, they have seen an increase in production of close to 20% since installation of the robot systems. According to Diane, “we see particular benefit for the fresh cows, as they can be milked multiple times per day. We have had a couple of cows produce more than 80 kg of milk per day at less than three weeks post calving. Related to this, we now have the ability to top-dress the high producing cows in the robots so they are individually fed according to production, receiving a partial mixed ration at the feed bunk rather than a total mixed ration that we used before. Health monitoring is cited as another advantage, as the Naylors are now able to detect a sick cow more easily as the robot monitors feed intake, milk yields, and mastitis, all of which they have found to be very accurate. The robot also has a glycol dispenser which can be activated for fresh cows as needed. They also added “bovi-boosters,” which can either wash their back feet or spray a hoof treatment if selected. Neck collars also have activity monitors, which help with tracking heats. Also significant is the time flexibility that it gives the family. Diane notes that if they are busy with field work or family functions, they have more flexibility as to when barn work and chores can be done. Of course, the “alarm” can go off at any time of day, but they can address issues immediately. The robots do

CMSS Improver 2017


require significant maintenance and cleaning, as they are in operation most of the day. Diane adds that some cows have a hard time being milked due to rear teat placement; if teats are too close together, the laser cannot differentiate between the two. If teats are too short, that also poses a problem, so teat placement is important in sire selection. Temperament also has to be considered, with the odd cow being scared of being in a confined space and constantly kicking, which is a big issue. Thankfully, the number of problem cows has not been a huge challenge. Diane notes both breeds (Holstein and Milking Shorthorns) have adjusted well to the robots and behave similarly. They have noticed that the barn is now very quiet and calm, with the cows enjoying having fewer people around! There is a pecking order in the herd, with certain cows coming to the robot at certain times and often preferring one robot over another. When a new cow enters the herd, they often have to fetch her for a few days until she gets used to visiting the robot, but the cows that have become used to the robots and return after calving for the next lactation show no issues and readily visit the robot. Diane adds that the Milking Shorthorns are probably a bit more patient, often more willing to wait their turn than the Holsteins. On the whole, they find the Shorthorns a bit easier to work with, as they take things in stride very well! Their quiet nature and lack of complications have allowed them to excel alongside Holsteins in their new robotic milking system.

Clarica named 2016 Cow of the Year

The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society is proud to announce that Lynmark NS Clarica has been voted Cow of the Year for 2016. This award was presented to her breeder and owner, Lynmark Farms of Norwood, Ontario, at the CMSS Field Day and AGM held on Saturday, July 23rd at Ferme Serol in Roxton Falls, Quebec. Clarica, scored Excellent 92-6E, is a daughter of the Australian sire Glenbrook Storm Ruler marketed by Semex Alliance and Hauxwell Clara 20th EX-90, a Six Star Brood Cow that traces back to a British importation in the early 1990s. Clarica is currently milking in her eighth lactation at twelve years old, and has a lifetime production of more than 72,000 kg of milk. Across her lactations, she has averaged more than 150 points above herd average for Composite BCA, while also producing two Very Good daughters and a son that is being marketed internationally by Semex (Lynmark St Clare). In addition, Clarica has had success in the show ring. She was the 1st Place Three Year Old and Reserve Grand Champion at the 2007 National Show, as well as the 1st Place Mature Cow and CanWest DHI Production Award Winner at the 2010 National Show. Clarica also has two other Top 3 placings at previous National Shows. Clarica was bred by her owners, Tim Shearer and Irene Vietinghoff, after purchasing her dam at a CMSS National Sale. According to Tim and Irene, “that purchase was one of the best decisions we’ve made, as that cow family has become foundational in our herd. We emphasize cow families in our herd, and Clarica is a direct result of working with great genetics.” Cow of the Year voting was completed in June, with members of the Society eligible to vote for their choice of two worthy candidates. The runner-up in voting was Oceanbrae Pingerly Betty VG-88-2y, National Show Grand Champion in 2015 and #4 LPI cow in Canada, owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, Prince Edward Island.

Country Report: United States by Junia Isiminger, AMSS Secretary The year of 2016 was a difficult dairy economy to navigate for the United States, much like the rest of the world. However, the AMSS had a positive year. We were able to print the second edition of our Bull Book, hold a successful National Sale, have an outstanding Champion Cow, created a new Import/Export committee and have promising PPR results. In addition, I was able to attend your Annual Summer Field Day for the second year. The second 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-nine bulls are featured with an additional thirty-four bulls listed. Featured bulls provide pedigree information and contact information to obtain semen. In addition, the AMSS updated our breeding chart with additional notes to assist breeders in mating decisions regarding herdbook levels. We will continue to print the Bull Book annually. The 2016 Annual Meeting and National Sale was held in Dublin, Ohio in June. The sale had a total of 55 lots, including one choice of females and five embryo lots. The top selling lot was a Summer Yearling consigned by Peter Vail, selling for $5,500. The live lots averaged $2,400. The 2016 National Sale was once again one of the highest grossing sales in the history of our national sale. Our sale was held live online with The 2017 Annual Meeting and National Sale is scheduled for June 14-17, 2017 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The sale is already showing an impressive lineup of lots. Milking Shorthorns had an impressive year in the show ring. We had a repeat for our Jim King Triple Crown Winner. To win this prize, one cow had to win the Grand Champion title at three out of the five National Shows in the same show season. In 2015, for the first time, this honor went to Cate’s Ruben TulsaTime EXP and she repeated in 2016. Winning the title of Grand Champion at the North Eastern National (Big E), International (World Dairy Expo) and Winter National (NAILE) was Cate’s Ruben Tulsa-Time EXP owned and bred by Peter Cate of Warren, New Hampshire. Tulsa Time’s sire is Innisfail Red Ruben and her dam is Cates KAO Daytona ET, a Kuszmar Alfairs Othello daughter. Pete’s history with this cow family is deep. His parents brought the foundation cow of this great “T” family in 1967 and they have continued to develop this family for almost 50 years. 42

CMSS Improver 2017

The Grand Champion of the Eastern National Show (All-American Dairy Show) was Kuszmar Arkansas Mud-EXP, bred and owned by Kusylyk Cattle Co. of Batavia, New York and sired by Kuszmar Mudslinger. This was the first year in many years to have a Western National Show. The Grand Champion of the Western National Show (Washington State Fair) was Kundes Golden Jealousy Dandy, bred and owned by Randy Kunde, Oakville, Washington. The number one PPR bull in the United States after the April 2017 proof round is the B Jurist son Ecuafarm BJ Don Juan, followed by Echo Farm T-Bruno Plutonium and Echo Farm T-Bruno Titanium. We are continuing to see many GE (50% Milking Shorthorn) and EXP (75% Milking Shorthorn) bulls in the top 25 PPR, with only four bulls being full herdbook. Top full herdbook bulls include Echo Farm Ted McCoy ET, Clayside Milk Money, Kundes Golden Logic Adventure and Mikes-Dar Titan ET. In July, I was honored to spend a weekend in your country attending your Field day. Unfortunately, I was unable to visit any additional farms, but greatly enjoyed visiting with you the Canadian breeders. One new item in AMSS business in 2016 was the creation of the Import/ Export committee chaired by Mikayla Krause of Texas. She has made contact with our sister organizations including Canada, England and Australia. She is working on United States bulls being made available for export and working on arranging import of foreign bulls. The other members of her committee all have an international interest in promoting Milking Shorthorns globally. This is a committee that is dedicated to international work which can only make our breed stronger. In 2017, the Society will be continuing to work on adding percentages to registrations, producing 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.

Country Report: United Kingdom Transition is perhaps the best word to describe 2016 starting with the retirement of Frank Milnes. Frank has been a dedicated and hard working secretary for the Society for over the last seventeen years. He will be sorely missed and hard to replace having done so much to take the breed forward in such a fluctuating industry. From the 1st January 2018, the Dairy Shorthorn Society’s Coates herd book will be closed. As a result, the society’s semen company Red Cattle Genetics will be rebranded as Shorthorn Sires UK (SSUK). By closing the breed to outside bloodlines, the society is trying to maintaining the breeds fertility, locomotion and longevity, fundamental traits which set Shorthorns apart from other breeds. Genomic evaluations are now in the pipeline for UK bulls which will further enhance the selection process. The company remains a successful branch of the society and members and commercial breeders have increased interest in sexed semen which is a new product and useful management tool the society have invested in. The SSUK committee is regularly selecting sires that return positive proofs. The UK dairy industry is continually plagued by an unsteady milk price which is largely controlled by retail power. The increasing pressure to produce milk for little return is forcing many farmers to look at the cost of production. This in turn has maintained the Society in good stead as the Dairy Shorthorns lead the way in efficient and sustainable

milk production. We are very fortunate that the pedigree registrations have remained on par from the previous year. TB regulations still cause huge problems to farmers. Certain areas of the country now have to test every six months, whilst low infected areas must be on stand still for sixty days if their cattle stay in a high risk zone for shows etc. Despite these turbulent times the Dairy Shorthorns have had an impressive year in the show ring by taking centre stage and winning the coveted Interbreed Crowns. Cotonhall Duchess Ann 16 EX90 sired by Drisgol Watzon won five Interbreed titles, owned and bred by Rob Kite. Whilst the well established National Show was won by Churchroyd Peggy 19th EX91 sired by Nejay Prince 4. Peggy 19th went on to win the interbreed title at the Great Yorkshire Show which has never been won by a Dairy Shorthorn, a fantastic achievement for the Collins family who own and bred the unbeaten cow. Sales of Dairy Shorthorns held up well with a high of 2,060gns for a light roan third calver Newpark Barrington 11th by Winbrook Vince from the Hauxwell Dispersal of Tom Ripley. Whilst youngstock trade was exceptional with a high of 1,800gns for a maiden heifer from the Rodway herd of Graham Madeley. Rodway Marie 83rd ET by Treeton Pimp attracted some lively bidding from both the UK and Ireland. Classification results continue to improve with two EX-97 cows in the breed and we now boast nine cows that have achieved over 100,000kgs. Last year the Shorthorn World Conference was held in Uruguay. The trip was expertly organized and a must for any Shorthorn enthusiast. In 2022 the World Conference will be held in the UK to commemorate the Coates herd book being 200 years old, as the book is reputed to be the oldest herd book in the world. We hope we can entice our friends to cross over the waters and join what promises to be a great tour. Best wishes to all our Shorthorn friends in Canada and throughout the world. If any Shorthorn enthusiasts are planning a visit to the UK, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the office who will help arrange farm visits.

Country Report: New Zealand by Ross Soffe, President, New Zealand Milking Shorthorn Association

This has been a very wet season for much of New Zealand, which has not been good for production due to poor grass growth, compounded by pasture damage caused by cows grazing wet paddocks. This is disappointing in view of increases in farm gate milk prices. Pingerly daughters are continuing to attract a lot of attention. Good calves grow into tall strong cows with type and production. They continue to perform well in the show ring, competing well in the All Breeds section. Te Kiripi CR Alan daughters are continuing to perform well in the in the Te Kiripi herd and we are looking forward to see his daughters perform on widespread proofs. Also calving next season are Oliver Woods Carbo daughters. Carbo is a son of Brecon Encore and brings together two outstanding type and production cows: Oliver Woods Tal Cara and Brecon Arty Empress. The Carbo daughters have been attracting attention in the show ring. Semen sales have been steady, but we would like to see the sales of our young bulls increasing. Although the market is swamped with choice, we believe that the progress we have made recently breeding good bulls from cows performing well in NZ conditions is a consideration which cannot be overlooked. We are putting extra efforts into promotion. We believe that the Milking Shorthorns we are breeding are improving rapidly and we are currently promoting a roan, polled, A2A2 bull named Brecon Durango. He is by Northbrook Duncan out of an R Fastrup (Danish Red) cow, Brecon Fast Dimple. He has good production behind him, so we believe that in addition to being a good Milking Shorthorn sire he will be a good crossbreeding option for commercial crossbred herds. His A2A2 status is an added bonus, as we do not have many A2A2 bulls currently available.

Milking Shorthorns: An Efficient Dairy Alternative • More efficient converter of feed to milk, especially pasture and other forages, lowering feed cost. • 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.
