President’s Report by Don Richardson, CMSS President This past year was a rewarding one. A big thank you to the Prinzen and Koopmans families for hosting us at the Field Day and AGM last July. It was great to see top notch Milking Shorthorns in both herds producing along-side quality Holsteins and Brown Swiss cows. I feel this demonstrates the fact that Shorthorns can have a valuable place in many herds, regardless of what other breeds they have. It’s up to us to help spread the word by promoting the breed. Year after year, the National Show in Lindsay highlights the steady improvement in confirmation the breed is exhibiting. We as breeders can help promote Milking Shorthorns by loaning a cow out to a local fair for milking demonstrations or displays or making a heifer available to a young 4-H member. It was fantastic to see three Milking Shorthorn heifers shown at the Royal in Toronto, holding their own against quality heifers of other breeds. Our family feels that loaning a fancy calf out for 4-H brings much needed exposure to the breed. 2018 will see the return of the online National Sale on September 8th. I encourage established breeders when choosing animals for the sale to pick from the top of their herd. It is so important for first time buyers to have access to high quality stock. Past National Sale consignments have gone on to be National Show Class Winners and Class Leaders for milk production. Let’s continue that trend! In closing, I look forward to seeing many of you at the Field Day and AGM this summer on July 28th, hosted by the Ashton family in beautiful Port Perry, Ontario. I hope that you all have a successful year on your farms and advancing the breed together.

Secretary-Manager Report 2018 by Ryan Barrett I often find myself unsure what to write in these yearly messages. I try and focus on the positive, while addressing areas in need of attention. At the same time, I don’t want to get repetitive. In the past, I’ve highlighted the need for breed growth and outlined some ways to make that happen; slowly, I see progress in that direction. Last June, I was able to take some vacation time in England and Ireland. While in England, I was able to visit some Dairy Shorthorn herds. I was very encouraged to see great improvement and expansion in the breed in its native land by capitalizing on one of the core strengths of the breed: production from pasture and forages. Farm gate milk prices in the UK are much lower than here in Canada, and the Dairy Shorthorn is succeeding and expanding by making milk more efficiently and more cost-effectively than other breeds. At the same time, the UK Society has recently decided to close their herd book to any further non-Shorthorn influence. While it has been necessary to expand the genetic base and modernize the breed, it is also essential to retain the characteristics that make Shorthorns attractive as an alternative for dairy producers. This is the type of balance that I believe most Canadian breeders are trying to achieve. At the moment, selection of AI sires in Canada is more limited than it has been in several years. Consolidation in the artificial insemination industry is reducing the number of sire proving programs offering Milking Shorthorn sires. The current lack of genomic selection in our breed also leaves us at a disadvantage. In other countries, a number of high-merit bulls are being collected privately, leaving them currently unavailable for Canadian breeders. Your Board of Directors is very aware of this issue and is actively investigating options to make more quality sires available to Canadian breeders, including more sires with higher purity. This will mostly likely involve cooperation with our international sister societies 6

CMSS Improver 2018


on sire collection and distribution. At this point, I would like to publicly thank the Semex Alliance for supporting the breed through their sire program. Their continued involvement in the breed is essential to our success, and I thank them for their support. In looking through the list of milk records from 2017, I’m encouraged by the increased number of completed records in excess of 10,000 kg of milk. In recent years, much of the focus has been on increasing the fat percentage, in response to milk pricing and market demand. In a relatively short period of time, Canadian breeders have increased breed average fat percentage from 3.65% to over 4.0%! Now, it’s time to get our breed average for milk and protein higher. Back in the mid to late 1990’s, we saw dramatic increases in milk production across the breed. With the quality of genetics available to us as well as advances in management and nutrition, we should easily be able to replicate those increases. How can you be part of this upward momentum? Be more demanding of your cattle to produce milk, particularly those in third lactation or later. Breed your lowest producers to a beef sire or implant an embryo…you don’t want to multiply those genetics. If you are on official milk recording, cull low producers before 240 days in milk so they don’t get an official BCA, hurting your herd average and the breed average. Look at some of the higher production sire options available without sacrificing gains in type and components that have been made, particularly on more traditional-type cows. As with everything, there is a need to strive for balance, as we don’t want to give up the fertility, longevity, and versatility of our breed. On a personal note, I want to thank those who have been very supportive of me on the last couple of years as I’ve undergone two minor surgeries that have meant some time out of commission. Thankfully, both procedures have gone extremely well, and my health is better than ever. I look forward to more opportunities to visit with breeders this year, and I’m particularly keen to welcome even more new members to our breed. A big thank you to breeders who actively support the breed through their involvement with the Society or by making quality cattle available…your efforts are key to our collective success!

Rapport du secrétaire 2018 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL Je ne sais jamais trop quoi écrire dans ces messages annuels. J’essaie de me concentrer sur le positif tout en parlant des domaines qui nécessitent de retenir notre attention. Dans le même temps, je ne veux pas être répétitif. Par le passé, j’ai souligné le besoin de croissance de la race et indiqué certaines manières de le faire. Je constate lentement des progrès dans cette direction. En juin dernier, je suis parti en vacances en Angleterre et en Irlande. Quand j’étais en Angleterre, j’ai pu visiter des troupeaux Shorthorn Laitier et j’ai été très encouragé de voir de belles améliorations et l’expansion de la race dans son pays d’origine; ceci a été réalisé en capitalisant sur les principales forces de la race : la production à partir des pâturages et des fourrages. Les prix du lait à la ferme au R.-U. sont bien inférieurs à ceux du Canada. La race Shorthorn laitier prospère en produisant du lait plus efficacement et plus économiquement que d’autres races. Dans le même temps, la UK Society (Société du R.-U.) a récemment décidé que toute influence non-Shorthorn ne serait pas intégrée au livre généalogique. Même si l’élargissement de la base génétique de la race et la modernisation de la race ont été nécessaires, il est également essentiel de conserver les caractéristiques qui font des Shorthorn une alternative attractive pour les producteurs laitiers. À mon sens, c’est ce type d’équilibre que la plupart des éleveurs canadiens essaient d’atteindre. Pour le moment, la sélection des taureaux d’IA au Canada est la plus limitée de ces dernières années. La consolidation au sein de l’industrie de l’insémination artificielle réduit le nombre de programmes de taureaux éprouvés qui proposent des taureaux de la race Shorthorn Laitier. Présentement, le manque de sélection génomique dans notre race nous désavantage. Dans d’autres pays, la semence d’un certain nombre de taureaux de haut mérite génétique est récoltée de manière privée, les rendant ainsi inaccessibles pour les éleveurs canadiens. Votre conseil d’administration connaît bien ce problème et se renseigne activement sur des options pour offrir davantage de taureaux de qualité aux éleveurs canadiens, y compris davantage de taureaux avec un niveau de pureté plus élevé. Ceci impliquera certainement de la coopération avec nos sociétés sœurs internationales pour la récolte et la distribution de la semence de taureaux. Pour 8

CMSS Improver 2018


le moment, j’aimerais remercier publiquement l’Alliance Semex pour son soutien de la race par le biais de leur programme de taureaux. Son implication continue dans la race est essentielle à notre réussite, et je la remercie pour son soutien. Quand je consulte la liste des relevés du lait 2017, il est encourageant pour moi de voir le nombre plus élevé de relevés supérieurs à 10 000 kg de lait complétés. Au cours des dernières années, nous nous sommes concentrés sur l’augmentation du pourcentage de gras pour répondre aux prix du lait et à la demande du marché. En relativement peu de temps, les éleveurs canadiens ont fait augmenter leur pourcentage moyen de gras de 3,65 % à plus de 4 %! Il est maintenant temps de faire augmenter la moyenne de la race pour le lait et les protéines. Dans la deuxième moitié des années 90, nous avons constaté d’importantes augmentations dans la production de lait dans notre race. Grâce à la qualité de la génétique qui est à notre disposition, et grâce aux avancées en termes de régie et de nutrition, nous devrions facilement être capables de reproduire ces augmentations. Comment pouvez-vous participer à cette dynamique? Soyez plus exigeants envers vos vaches pour qu’elles produisent plus de lait, en particulier les vaches de troisième lactation et plus. Accouplez vos plus faibles productrices avec un taureau de boucherie ou utilisez-les comme receveuses d’embryons… vous ne voulez pas faire perdurer leur génétique. Si vous suivez le contrôle laitier officiel, réformez les faibles productrices avant qu’elles arrivent à 240 jours en lait pour qu’elles ne reçoivent pas de MCR officielle, ce qui aurait un effet négatif sur la moyenne de votre troupeau et la moyenne de la race. Recherchez des taureaux qui produisent de meilleures productrices sans sacrifier les gains réalisés en conformation et pour les composants, en particulier pour les vaches de type plus traditionnel. Comme pour tout, il faut viser un bon équilibre, car nous ne voulons pas renoncer à la fertilité, la longévité et la polyvalence de notre race. Sur une note plus personnelle, je souhaite remercier les personnes qui m’ont soutenu ces dernières années. J’ai dû subir deux interventions chirurgicales mineures qui m’ont forcé à m’arrêter pendant un petit moment. Heureusement, ces deux procédures se sont très bien passées et je n’ai jamais été en aussi bonne santé. Je suis impatient de pouvoir rendre visite aux éleveurs cette année, et il me tarde tout particulièrement d’accueillir encore plus de nouveaux membres. Un grand merci à vous, les éleveurs, qui appuyez activement la race grâce à votre implication avec la Société ou grâce à votre commercialisation de bovins de qualité… vos efforts sont la clé de notre réussite collective!

Country Report: Australia by Michael Tuhan, Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia

The Illawarra breed has been in the public eye in recent times due to a strong showing at International Dairy Week. Wallumlands Sunstorm 8 made history in 2015 when she became the first coloured breed cow to win the Supreme Champion title for All breeds. This year, Llandovery JR Joan 982 went close to repeating that feat, achieving the Reserve Senior title. Llandovery Thorpes Stella 1413 went one better in the Intermediate section by claiming the Supreme Champion title in what was a great finale to the show for the breed. While showing has arguably little relevance to the commercial dairy producer these days, International Dairy Week has certainly brought welcome attention to the breed. The fact that Joan 982 is half owned by a New Zealander is probably reflective of that. The breed continues to draw on the best Red Genetics from all over the globe to breed a commercially relevant cow, whilst striving to maintain the distinguishing features such as ease of calving, longevity and their trademark docile nature. The current proven bull list is reflective of this, with Silverleigh Maxima (an Innisfail Prince of Diamonds son) occupying second spot on Balanced Performance Index (BPI), whilst the third highest BPI bull Myrtleholme Mitch has a mix of Illawarra, Holstein

Llandovery Jordans Queen EX94 14

CMSS Improver 2018


and Scandinavian red in his pedigree. On the horizon, the Royal Treble son Creighton Park Elmo (Semex) is showing some promise. His current BPI of +102 would make him equal to the top bull; however, at this stage his proof is not of high enough reliability to make the publishable proven list. With 41 daughters in 10 herds already, I think I can say with some surety that he will end up at the pointy end of the list once he has enough data. Some exciting young bulls coming on line include the Pingerly son of the above mentioned Wallumlands Sunstorm 8 EX92, and continuing on the global breeding theme is a son of UK Milking Shorthorn Rodway Moses out of Llandovery Jordans Queen EX94. Both of these bulls will stand at Agri-Gene. May will see the dispersal of the famed Ovensdale Illawarra stud. While this will be a big loss for the breed, it also provides a tremendous opportunity for old and new breeders alike to access some of the breeds best maternal lines.

Country Report: United States by Kate Smith, AMSS Secretary The American Milking Shorthorn Society saw several changes in 2017. Most significantly, Kate Smith joined the organization as Executive Secretary in November. More recently, the AMSS was also excited to announce a partnership with the US Ayrshire Breeders and Dairy Agenda Today for the production of a joint breed publication. Change and progress have been strong themes throughout the last year! In 2017, the AMSS herdbook registered over 2100 animals. The classification program also evaluated 1050 animals. Membership in the Society held strong at over 450 members, with Junior memberships continuing to grow as well. The National Convention was held in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from June 14-17, 2017. The National Sale was held in conjunction with the convention. A total of 42 live lots sold averaged $2,079. The high selling live lot was Hard Core Perfect Sunset ET, bringing $5,100. Sunset is an Innisfail Perfection EXP daughter out of Innisfail BDC Stella 905 5E-E96, two time All-American with over 238,700M lifetime production. Stella 905 has proven to transmit and is common to find in pedigrees on the paternal and maternal side. During the convention banquet, several members were honored for their efforts and impact on the breed. Citizen of the Year was awarded to John and Marjorie Kuszlyk of Batavia, New York. The Harry Clampitt Young Breeder Award was presented to Jason and Jessica Kennedy of RGeneration Farm of Cochranton, Pennsylvania. The Dual Purpose Breeder Award was presented to Alvin (deceased) and Carol Roy of Carolton, Oregon. Without members with the passion of these recipients, our breed would not have seen the progress we have achieved. As always, October brought the excitement of World Dairy Expo. Our 2017 Grand Champion was Eichlers MD Blanche-ET, the first place Junior Three Year Old. She is sired by Kuszmar Megadeth. Junior Champion honors were presented to KNH Endres Zeus Legendary, the first place Senior Heifer Calf. Legendary is sired by Purple Idalee RR Zeus EXP ET. It was a strong show as always and we welcome Canadian 20

breeders to attend or possibly exhibit in future years! AMSS has been in a situation to review standard practices and procedures to ensure the needs of our membership are being met. The past few months have been full of opportunity, change, and progress. This idea of moving forward and looking at things in a new light will be continuing. New breeders and owners join the breed every year and we continue to grow and develop to meet a wide range of goals. Internationally, the AMSS is actively working with several countries to provide new genetic options and encourage breed development. The Milking Shorthorn breed conformation and production has made great progress over the last 15-20 years and fits well into many different production environments. We always welcome inquiries and questions on American genetics and breed programs!

Distinguished Service Award: Barry & Jean Haggett

The Society’s Distinguished Service Award is periodically awarded to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the breed through their service to the Society as well as their successes in breeding Milking Shorthorn cattle. This year, the CMSS is proud to recognize the late Barry and Jean Haggett of Fieldcrest Farms with the breed’s highest recognition. Barry and Jean Haggett were married in 1958 and purchased their own farm in Addison, Ontario (near Brockville) in 1960. They started their own dairy herd in 1965, initially with Holsteins. However, Jean had a history with the Shorthorn breed, as both of her grandfathers raised Dual Purpose Shorthorns. So, they added their first Milking Shorthorns in 1988 from Watermead Farms in Manotick. While they intended to just add a few Shorthorns to the herd, they were so pleased with how they performed that by the mid 1990’s, Milking Shorthorns had almost completely replaced their Holsteins. After this rapid herd conversion, the Haggetts were very active in the Society. They were frequent exhibitors at Peterbough and Lindsay Fairs as well as at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. They also exhibited at the New York State Fair in Syracuse and were members of the New York Milking Shorthorn Association. They were also active in the Ottawa Valley Shorthorn Club, actively promoting the breed in Eastern Ontario and starting several new breeders with their first Milking Shorthorns. They were strong supporters of the CMSS National Sale, frequently consigning quality animals as well as purchasing quality animals for 22

their growing herd. Barry and Jean hosted the CMSS Field Day in 1994, with approximately 130 people in attendance that day! Both Barry and Jean served as CMSS Directors for a number of years, and Jean helped design the new CMSS logo after changing the name of the Society. Barry was the CMSS President at the time of his passing in 2002. Over the years, the Haggetts bred some cows that would achieve significant success. Fieldcrest Rubin Pearl EX-92-8E was a Six Star Brood Cow who was Grand Champion at Lindsay in 2001 for Lynmark Farms. Her daughter, Fieldcrest Prime Jewel, was 1st Four Year Old and Grand Champion at the RAWF in 1999 for GMC Farms. Fieldcrest Ideal-P EX-92-4E was a Five Star Brood Cow for Oceanbrae Farms and is the dam of current Top 5 LPI sire Ironman-P. One of their true herd favourites was Fieldcrest Quest EX-92-4E, producing more than 70,000 kgs of milk in seven lactations as well be being a former #1 LPI cow in Canada. A grand-daughter of Quest (Fieldcrest Picolo Quest 3) recently scored EX-90. The Fieldcrest Herd was dispersed in 2004 following Barry’s death and the family’s exit from dairying at the time. While the BSE crisis was in full force at the time, depressing cattle prices, some quality Fieldcrest animals went to other Canadian herds across the country. When Barry and Jean’s son John reentered the dairy industry, he was able to reacquire their herd favourite Quest, and a number of her descendants are still in the Fieldcrest herd today. The Society was very happy to have the Haggett Family, including Jean, attend the 2017 Field Day in Prince Edward County. Unfortunately, Jean passed away in December 2017 after a battle with cancer. Both Barry and Jean are fondly remembered by fellow breeder for their humility, graciousness, commitment to family, and advocacy for the Milking Shorthorn breed after joining the breed later in their farming career.

2017 Field Day and AGM: Prince Edward County, Ontario July 29th was a lovely day for a Field Day in Prince Edward County. Milking Shorthorn breeders from across Ontario, PEI, and the United States first visited the Koopycrest Herd near Picton, home of the Koopmans family. Matriarch of the herd is Koopycrest Mocha Ali Apple, who the majority of the herd is now descended from. Apple holds the All Time Record for 305 day milk and protein production for a Canadian Milking Shorthorn, and was also Grand Champion at our National Show in 2013. Shawn milks Holsteins and Brown Swiss as well as his Milking Shorthorns, with a growing number of red heifers coming along. The next stop was to the heifer raising facility for Prinsville Farms, close to their home farm near Bloomfield. Some impressive daughters of Rovin Bolero and Strickley True Perfection attracted particular attention. Our hosts for our noon meal and annual meeting were the Prinzen family in Bloomfield. Dave Prinzen is the Past-President of the Society and his family has been fantastic breed supporters since buying their first Milking Shorthorns in 2005. A great beef-on-a-bun lunch was followed by a successful fun auction, with lots of generous donations by breeders and supporting businesses. After the fun auction, there was a tour of the Prinsville herd, followed by the Annual Meeting. Prinsville Jurist Summer EX had quite a few admirers on the day. Members in attendance approved the actions of the Board of Directors over the past year as well as the 2016 Financial Report. We were also pleased to have Susan Lee from Idaho, Sharon Vaadi from New York, Katie Agnew from Wisconsin, and Curt and Louanne Krause from Texas to join us on the day and talk Shorthorns. They also left us with a number of AMSS goodies, and went home with more than their share of fun auction items! Very special thanks to the Prinzen and Koopmans families for their efforts to host us this year! It was a great day with great cattle and fellowship with breeders and friends! 30

Travels in the United Kingdom by Ryan Barrett, CMSS Secretary-Manager

Dairy Shorthorn heifers at the Strickley Herd in the Lake District of England. It had been too long since my first and last trip to Britain in the summer of 2004. At that time, I was just starting as Secretary-Manager for the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society and just finishing my Masters degree. Thirteen years later, I was overdue for a trip back over to the UK! Part of my trip was decided non-bovine related. I had never been to London, so I started my trip this past June with a couple of full days experiencing the sights and sounds of London. I only barely made a dent in my list of places to go, so a return trip or two will be required. From London, I headed up to Birmingham to spend a couple of days with some good friends of mine from grad school. Patrick is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Birmingham and has been working in England for the past couple years along with his Quebecois wife Emilie and their three children. After saying farewell to my Canadian friends I picked up my rental car in Manchester and then set out for a whirlwind tour of the North and Midlands. First stop was to Rodway Manor, hosted by Graham and Shirley Madeley. Graham and Shirley hosted me and toured me around on my first trip across the pond, and Graham and I have reconnected in Australia, in the USA, and here in Canada, including coming to Oceanbrae for our national Field Day in 2013. It was a busy time, as hay was being baled everywhere and folks were getting ready for the National Show in Cheshire; however, “The Global Shorthorn CMSS Improver 2018

39


Ambassador” took me in the Land Rover over to see some Shorthorns in Staffordshire that evening. We popped in for a quick visit at the Cotonhall herd, although Rob was already up in Cheshire at the show. However, I got to chat with his father and see the bulk of the Cotonhall herd coming out of the milking shed, with lots of quality individuals. The next stop was to see David and Debbie Winnington and their Rantonall Herd. It was a sight for sore eyes to see such a large group of Dairy Shorthorns pasturing the rolling hills…I can only dream about seeing vistas like that back home. I was impressed with the longevity and durability of the Rantonall cows, and had a great discussion with David about his philosophy on breeding. Though few of the cows traced back to sires I was familiar with, it was evident looking at large numbers of daughters per sire that several bulls had a familiar “stamp” to their progeny. Before we headed back home, we took a drive over to see his brother’s Winhall Herd close by. I think between the three herds I had seen more Shorthorns in a day than I had seen in the past couple years of herd visits in North America. Thanks to David and Debbie for their hospitality! The next morning I headed north up the M6 to the Royal Cheshire Show. Entries were down a bit due to TB restrictions…my sincere sympathies to British breeders for the complexity and often heartbreak that comes with TB testing. I was very happy with the Grand Champion, Cotonhall Prophet Cherry, with a great frame and spot-on rear udder. I was also keen to see some daughters of Strickley True Perfection, as some doses of that bull have been used in Canada in the past couple of years. It was great to connect with a number of breeders around the show ring and at the Society BBQ that evening.

Following the show, I followed the judge and Twitter celebrity James Robinson and his lovely wife Michelle up to the Lake District. My sat nav took me down some interesting local roads in the dark, but I eventually found my way to the farm. The next morning, James took me around to see the milking herd and young stock. The vistas were breathtaking, equally the quality of the cattle. James and family have had particular success with Illawarra genetics in recent years, and I picked out some daughters of Jinny’s Empire, Pride’s Prophet and Pingerly that I thought were quite handy. I also quite like some very productive looking daughters of Drisgol Madonna’s Prince that were obviously making money. I was pleased to hear that James had used a little bit of Koopycrest Anecdote-P, and we had a good chat about some Canadian genetics available in the UK. Before I left I was able to see Strickley Lady Hermoine 4th EX-92, imminently due to calve for the 13th time and close to cracking 100,000 kgs of lifetime production...most impressive. Next stop was north and east to Marleycote Walls and the Baynes family. After a lovely meal with David, Shirley and Richard, we set out for a tour of the herd. I spent a few days at Marleycote in 2014 as well and had also toured with David and Shirley in Australia in 2008, so it was great to reconnect and see the many changes since my last visit. The farm now features a modern free-stall barn, robotic milkers, and a direct selling milk business. I was most impressed by the longevity of so many high production cows in the Marleycote herd, a testament to a commitment to cow comfort as well as genetics for longevity. A number of cows with a recent infusion of Illawarra genetics caught my eye, as well a number of daughters of Marleycote sires with a combination of Shorthorn, Red Holstein, and Ayrshire genetics. 42

I then headed down to Yorkshire for a visit to the Churchroyd Herd near Dewsbury. Wendy is still a bit sore at me for stealing the limelight with my bang-on Shania Twain karaoke skills from the back of the bus in Australia, but she and Ian were gracious enough to overlook that and show me around the herd. Once again, the commanding views of the countryside were impressive, as was the herd. Daughters of Jinny’s Empire, Madonna’s Prince, and Nejay Prince 4 stood out for me. Churchroyd Peggy 19 was dry, but it was easy to see the quality and power that has taken her to the top of a number of shows in recent years. We had a great discussion on genetics from around the world before making my way back to Manchester. I had a morning flight to Ireland the next day, but before I left I was able to sneak in a morning visit to Dunham Herd on the way to the airport. Thanks to Stuart for giving me a quick viewing of the cows, though the cows were more interested in making it to the other end of the property than being viewed by me. The Royles are emphasizing higher purity genetics while emphasizing modern type and production, very much in line with the majority of Canadian breeders. I was particularly impressed by daughters of Nejay Prince 3 and Kayl Walkabout. My trip concluded with three cow-free days in Ireland. Just a taste of the Emerald Isle…I definitely need to head back to Ireland in the near future, and hopefully include some Shorthorns on the itinerary the next time. Sincere thanks to everyone who took time to show me their herds on my travels, with particular thanks to the Madeley and Robinson families for their hospitality in hosting me overnight. I am sure that it won’t be thirteen years til my next visit!

Country Report: United Kingdom Ros Rimmer, Secretary, Shorthorn Society of the UK & Ireland Firstly I would like to introduce myself as the new Breed Secretary for the Shorthorn Society of the UK & Ireland, I started my new position with the Shorthorn Society on 17th July and am thoroughly enjoying role at the Society with everyone making me feel very welcome, I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead of me. I am a farmer’s daughter; that has worked and been involved in the agricultural industry for over 30 years, a number of those years were spent Milk Quota Trading; which lead to very keen interest in the Dairy Industry. On 1st January 2018, the Dairy Shorthorn Society’s Coates Herd Book was officially closed. We are still very fortunate that the pedigree registrations have remained on par from the previous year. The breed continues to benefit commercial herds on grazing based systems who are looking for cost effective options. If you combine the breeds strong attributes of longevity, good feet & legs, fertility, and the natural ability to convert grass to milk, the breed can only be a positive for grass based and organic systems for years to come. The newly re-branded Shorthorns Sires UK Ltd (SSUK) goes from strength to strength, and I thank our newly appointed field officer Graham Bell for his enthusiasm and dedication to the Society in promoting the breed and increasing sales of semen on the ground, his knowledge and experience has been a huge asset.

It has been good that UK producers have had a period of better milk prices in the last 12 months which created an increase in positivity within the industry, there has been a recent drop in milk price again, but I am sure this is part of an ongoing cycle, as an industry in the UK we need to be prepared and ready to handle these cycles as they come & go. TB continues to be a big frustration for the industry and has had a big effect on shows and sales this year. We live in hope that badger culls assists with the reduction of TB cases and that those in power realize the devastation it causes within the dairy industry and act on it. Part of my new job at the Society is the role of Secretary of the World Shorthorn Council, I have recently been contacted by Australian representatives regarding the World Conference due to be held in Australia in 2019, I will pass on the details as I receive them. It will be a fantastic opportunity for those who can, to visit and see fellow breeders and see the diversity of the breed in another part of the world. The 2022 World Conference will be held in the UK to commemorate the Coates herd book being 200 years old. And I sincerely hope we can entice our friends to cross over the waters and join us in what promises to be a great tour. The Dairy Shorthorns have had another impressive year in the show ring and many Champions have been sired by SSUK bulls. Earlsgift Butterbur 6th Champion at the South West Dairy Show is sired by Drisgol Madonna’s Prince, and Irthingvale Watzon Meg 2nd Champion from the Royal Welsh is sired by Drisgol Watzon, two top selling bulls on offer. The 2017 National Show was won by Cotonhall Prophet Cherry bred and owned by the Kite family who was fresh off her Championship title and Reserve Interbreed Crown from Stafford County Show. In fact Staffordshire show is becoming a shining light for the Dairy Shorthorns as they boasted the largest number of entries in the Dairy section putting on a fantastic display before winning the Interbreed Group. 2017 saw numerous Dairy Shorthorn breeders sadly disperse their herds, Brafell, Winbrook, Ablington and Attwoods were amongst these. Top price was 2,800gns for Winbrook Jill 160th sold freshly calved giving 40 litres with 5.31% butter fat. This roan daughter of Llandovery Jinny’s Empire was from Messrs GA & DW Dent. It has been great to see the enthusiasm of the youngsters of the Shorthorn Society. This year we had two teams compete in the third CMSS Improver 2018

Marleycote Patricia 20 sired by Nejay Royalty. Champion at Carlisle Show 2017

National Young Stars and they both did the society proud being placed second and fourth in a very competitive dairy section. The All Breeds All Britain Calf Show is always a hive of activity for the young members. This year’s Champion calf was Crugside Wild Card Duchess, sired by Churchroyd Wild Card a SSUK bull and bred by the Rees family. 2017 also saw the very first Young Members weekend take place, courtesy of Brinsbury College who hosted the event. I sincerely hope that this is a firm feature in the Dairy Shorthorn calendar and I look forward to seeing the young members flourish and continue their success in 2018 and onwards. 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 that will be happy to help arrange farm visits.

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

Looking back at the report Ross Soffe wrote for the 2017 Improver, it would be good to be able to report an improvement in our weather. Unfortunately, 2017 was one of the wettest that we can remember, with constant rain for 12 months or more. Combine this with a low milk price made the going tough. However, the weather did pick up but‌. we went from knee-deep mud to very dry in the space of two and half weeks! This meant by mid-November, a number of areas were declared or in the process of being declared in drought. However, roll the clock forward to now and it is pleasing to report that the summer dry didn’t last and while production for many will be down, the end of the season is good and it looks the pay-out will be good for the last season. The Red Breed Genetics (RBG) Committee continues to work with Semex to market young bull sires to our members. With a growing interest in polled, roan and A2A2 characteristics, RBG actively looks for possible sires which fit these characteristics but also have production behind them and the ability to meet NZ conditions. 2017 saw the first daughters of Oliver Woods Carbo-P SOS, Waiwera Turbo Charge SOS, and Brecon Egmont SOS milked. Waiwera Turbo Charge is sired by Northbrook Turbo (an earlier successful RBG sire) and is leading the animal evaluation data at this point in time. It is pleasing to report that RBG will be marketing with Semex one polled, A2A2 bull, Brecon Pohara S1S (a Carbo son), and one white bull, Brecon White Knight (a Brecon Egmont son). Along with these bulls, other RBG bulls continue to be offered to breeders as well as overseas bulls such as Lady Grove Conrad, Koopycrest Anecdote-P, and Oceanbrae Royal Bentley. A number of years ago, it was decided to combine the 2018 NZMSA Annual Conference with a tour of Australia. It was decided to start the tour with the Annual General Meeting in Auckland, before the tour party headed off-shore firstly to Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and 48

CMSS Improver 2018


ending up in Sydney, New South Wales, for the Sydney Easter Royal Show. A balance of farm visits and sight-seeing was the plan. Starting with the Outback Spectacular Show on the Gold Coast, where our first Illawarra cattle and shorthorns were sighted through to 10 farm visits in 6 days, over 1200 km in a bus, a Sydney Harbour Cruise and the Easter Show it was an action packed tour. We were fortunate to visit the White Park, St Andrews, Myrtleholme, Panorama, Silverleigh, Myall, Rosedale, Creighton Park, Beaulands, and Beauna Vista herds. Treeton Pingerly daughters are making an impact in New Zealand and we saw a number of his daughters during this tour. The trip has been recorded with photos on the NZ Milking Shorthorn Association Facebook page if you would like to take a look. The NZ Dairy Event continues to be a major show for our breeders, with NZDE 2018 including the North Island Champion Cow being awarded to Northbrook Way (an Orraryd daughter) and Reserve Champion going to Northbrook Wok (a Pingerley daughter). To our Canadian friends: if you are thinking of travelling to New Zealand, we would encourage you to take the time to visit NZ Dairy Event. It is well worth a look, ask the Barretts, as they have been down for this event!

The North Island Championship at the NZ Dairy Event in February 2018. Standing in 1st place is Northbrook Way (Sire: Orraryd) - 8 year old. 2nd place is Northbrook Wok (Sire: Treeton Pingerly) - 5 year old. 3rd place is Northbrook Operetta (Sire: Oceanbrae Logics Plato) - 4 year old. All exhibited by Northbrook - Wood Family. CMSS Improver 2018

Keith Barrett inducted into Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame The Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society congratulates long time member Keith Barrett on his recent induction to the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame on October 19th in Truro, Nova Scotia. Keith was the 2017 inductee from Prince Edward Island, and was nominated by the Dairy Farmers of Prince Edward Island. Keith founded his Oceanbrae herd of Milking Shorthorns in 1950, building one of the most successful Milking Shorthorns in Canada since then. Keith is a past President of the CMSS as well as the Canadian Shorthorn Association. He was honoured as with the Society’s Distinguished Service Award in 2010 and is an Honourary Life Member of the CMSS. His Oceanbrae herd was awarded Master Breeder recognition in 2008. Keith has also traveled extensively, visiting Shorthorn herds in the United Kingdom, United States, and Australia. He was instrumental in bringing outcross genetics from both the UK and USA to Canada for the benefit of his herd and others. Keith continues to be involved in farm, assisting son Fred and grandson Matthew at busy times of year with their Milking Shorthorn and Jersey dairy herd as well as a cow-calf herd of primarily purebred Simmental beef cattle. In addition to his accomplishments with the Milking Shorthorn breed, Keith was also lauded for his contributions to Prince Edward Island agriculture through involvement with local boards and projects, including crop insurance, helping to establish the first community pastures on PEI in his community, milk marketing boards, and the national Farm Credit board. He has also continued to be active in his local community and church for many years. Congratulations once again to Keith on his contributions to both the Milking Shorthorn breed as well as to agriculture in Prince Edward Island. 52

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.
