President’s Report by Don Richardson, CMSS President Well, what a difference a year makes! Last year at this time, there were clear signs of slow down in the dairy industry. Most of us hoped it would be short lived, but we know that that was not to be the case. With tighter margins, Milking Shorthorns are excellent at keeping the cost of production down with greater feed efficiency, high fertility, longer herd life, lower somatic cell score, lower veterinary costs, and calving ease all contributing to the bottom line. It’s a good time to own red, white and roan. I am looking forward to the 2019 Field Day & AGM in Schomberg on July 27th. It’s always a great way to socialize with other Milking Shorthorn breeders. Jenna Kippen has a great herd, with some of the best cows in my herd tracing back to Headacher cow families. I would like to invite fellow breeders to come to the National Show in Lindsay on September 20th. Whether you’ve exhibited in the past or are considering to show for a first time, it’s a great bunch of breeders that make everyone feel welcome. All the best for a successful year both for the Society and for your farms!

Secretary-Manager Report 2019 by Ryan Barrett As all Society members are aware, it’s been a challenging time in the Canadian dairy industry recently. Changes in milk marketing have generally led to a reduction in available quota, resulting in many herds being over-quota in the last 12 months. Many producers in Eastern Canada struggled with DON in corn last year, leading to feed shortages or reduced production from poorer quality feed. There continues to be a glut of replacement animals for a number of reasons (continued overproduction, increased use of sexed semen, improvements in cow longevity, etc). While genomics has been a large benefit in sire selection and identifying unprofitable female genetics at a young age, it has had the unintended consequence of reducing the value of “average� cattle, rarely rising above the cost of production in recent months. However, with every challenge there is opportunity. One of the benefits of being a smaller sized organization is the ability to respond more quickly to challenges to capitalize on opportunities. A good example of this is how Canadian Milking Shorthorn breeders have improved fat production in the past few years. Not so long ago, the breed average for fat percentage for Canadian Milking Shorthorns was 3.65%. This was advantageous under previous milk marketing frameworks, but that changed with a higher demand for butterfat and a subsequent increase in value for fat. As a result, sire selection was changed in short order to put more emphasis on fat production. Now, the breed average for fat percentage is close to 4.0%, with significant number of cows producing over 4.5% fat in herds across the country. In a dairy industry with reduced milk prices and tighter margins, there is an opportunity for Milking Shorthorns. Our breed has reduced feed costs, lower veterinary costs, fewer breedings per cow and improved longevity of production, traits surely to get increased focus with producers across the country. We must continue to prioritize these beneficial traits of the breed while continuing to push genetic improvement. 6

CMSS Improver 2019


As noted, our breed has made huge strides in fat production, and similar levels of improvement have been seen in conformation, especially for udder traits. Moving forward, milk and protein production will be of increased priority in the Milking Shorthorn LPI formula and in future sire selection. I like to see mature Milking Shorthorn cows producing a minimum of 8,000 kgs of milk in 305 days. Cows consistently producing less than this are not adequately paying the bills, even if they have reduced costs. With sexed semen and embryo transfer, we now have the ability to increase our focus on multiplying genetics from the best cows in your herd. Those lower producing cows should be increasingly on the cull list or bred to a beef sire to reduce their impact on the herd in the future. Voluntary culling is the fastest way to improve the genetic merit of your herd, more than using any top sire. The Society is continuing efforts to develop genomic evaluations for Milking Shorthorns. Some international sister societies have started testing bulls and cows, and we are working on finding a way to fund a larger number of genomic tests to build a reference population here in Canada. We already have a number of hair samples submitted to the Society office to hold for future testing, but we would love to build that gene bank this year. If you would like to participate in this project, please feel free to contact me. Another opportunity which I’m keen to develop is the growing number of first-time Milking Shorthorn owners we are seeing in recent months, particularly in Quebec. Most of these new owners have only one or two Milking Shorthorns, but there is definite potential to grow our breed base and foster these new breeders. This involves a combination of improved sire availability, field services to assist those new to the breed, and continuing to make quality genetics available from existing herds. The Society will continue to focus efforts on all of these issues in order to properly serve our growing membership and grow our breed across the country. As always, I welcome calls or emails anytime to talk Shorthorns and answer questions. One of the definite strengths of our Society is the fellowship of breeders that we have and the passion of our breeders for promoting the breed collectively. It continues to be an honour to work with you for the betterment of the Red, White, and Roan! CMSS Improver 2019

Rapport du secrétaire 2018 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL Comme tous les membres de la Société le savent, l’industrie laitière canadienne traverse une période difficile récemment. Les changements dans la commercialisation du lait entraînent généralement une réduction du quota disponible, et par conséquent de nombreux troupeaux sont au-dessus du quota au cours des 12 derniers mois. De nombreux producteurs dans l’est du Canada ont eu des difficultés avec du DON dans leur maïs l’an dernier, ce qui a entraîné des pénuries de fourrages ou une production de lait plus faible du fait d’aliments de moins bonne qualité. Il y a toujours une surabondance d’animaux de remplacement (surproduction continue, utilisation plus importante de semence sexée, amélioration de la longévité des vaches, etc.). Bien que la génomique ait grandement avantagé la sélection des taureaux et l’identification de génétique femelle à un jeune âge, ceci a eu la conséquence inattendue de réduire la valeur des bovins « moyens », qui a rarement dépassé le coût de production ces derniers mois. Toutefois, tout défi représente une opportunité. Un des avantages d’être une organisation de plus petite taille est que nous avons la capacité de répondre plus rapidement aux défis et de maximiser les opportunités. Un bon exemple est la manière dont les éleveurs canadiens de Shorthorn Laitier ont amélioré la production de gras au cours des dernières années. Il n’y a pas si longtemps, la moyenne de la race pour le pourcentage de gras était de 3,65 % chez les Shorthorn Laitier canadiennes. Dans les conditions précédentes de commercialisation du lait, ceci était avantageux, mais ceci a changé avec une demande plus importante pour la matière grasse du lait et une augmentation subséquente de la valeur du gras. En conséquence, la sélection des taureaux a été rapidement changée pour mettre plus d’emphase sur la production de gras. La moyenne de la race pour le pourcentage de gras est maintenant proche de 4 %, avec un grand nombre de vaches produisant plus de 4,5 % de gras dans les troupeaux partout au pays. Dans une industrie laitière avec des prix du lait réduits et des marges plus serrées, il y a une opportunité pour les Shorthorn Laitier. 8

CMSS Improver 2019


Notre race est moins dispendieuse pour les frais d’alimentation, les coûts vétérinaires, nécessite moins d’accouplements par vache et a une meilleure longévité de production, des caractéristiques qui attireront certainement l’attention des producteurs dans tout le pays. Nous devons continuer à prioriser ces traits avantageux de la race tout en continuant à favoriser l’amélioration génétique. Comme indiqué, notre race a fait d’énormes progrès pour la production de gras et des niveaux similaires d’amélioration ont été constatés pour la conformation, en particulier pour les traits du pis. À l’avenir, une plus grande priorité sera mise sur la production de lait et de protéines dans la formule de l’IPV ainsi que dans la future sélection des taureaux pour la race Shorthorn Laitier. J’aime voir les vaches adultes Shorthorn Laitier produire un minimum de 8000 kg de lait en 305 jours. Les vaches qui produisent régulièrement une quantité inférieure de lait ne paient pas les factures, même si elles engendrent moins de coûts. Avec la semence sexée et les transplantations embryonnaires, nous avons désormais la possibilité d’améliorer l’importance accordée à la multiplication de la génétique des meilleures vaches au sein de notre race. Les vaches qui produisent moins devraient être sur la liste des vaches à réformer ou bien à accoupler avec un taureau de boucherie pour réduire leur impact sur le troupeau à l’avenir. La réforme volontaire est la manière la plus rapide d’améliorer le mérite génétique de votre troupeau, plus rapide que le fait d’utiliser les meilleurs taureaux. La Société continue ses efforts pour développer des évaluations génomiques pour les Shorthorn Laitier. À l’international, certaines sociétés sœurs ont commencé le testage des taureaux et des vaches, et nous sommes en train d’essayer de trouver un moyen de financer un plus grand nombre de tests génomiques afin de bâtir une population de référence ici au Canada. Un certain nombre d’échantillons de poils ont déjà été soumis à notre Société pour un testage futur, mais nous aimerions bâtir cette banque de gènes cette année. Si vous souhaitez participer à ce projet, n’hésitez pas à me contacter. Une autre opportunité que je souhaite développer est le nombre grandissant de nouveaux propriétaires de Shorthorn Laitier que nous constatons au cours des récents mois, en particulier au Québec. La plupart de ces nouveaux propriétaires ont seulement une ou deux ShortCMSS Improver 2019

horn laitier, mais ceci représente un bon potentiel de développement de notre race et de fidélisation de ces nouveaux éleveurs. Ceci implique d’avoir une meilleure disponibilité des taureaux, des services à la ferme pour aider ces nouveaux propriétaires, et de continuer à ce qu’une génétique de qualité soit disponible à partir des troupeaux existants. La Société va continuer à concentrer ses efforts sur ces points afin de servir comme il se doit la base croissante de nos membres et de faire grandir la race dans le pays. Comme toujours, je reste disponible par téléphone ou par courriel pour parler des Shorthorn Laitier ou pour répondre à vos questions. L’un des points forts de notre Société est l’esprit de camaraderie et la passion de nos éleveurs pour faire la promotion de la race de manière collective. C’est toujours un honneur de travailler avec vous à l’amélioration des Rouge, Blanc et Rouan!

New Canadian Production Champions Crowned In recent months, we have seen a number of Milking Shorthorn cows establish new All-Time records for milk, fat or protein production by age group. This is indicative of the continuing genetic improvement we are seeing in the Milking Shorthorn breed and a testament to the breeding and management of their owners. Recently setting a new Yearling All Time 305 day record for Milk and Protein is Koopycrest Royalty Ali Ashlyn GP-84, bred and owned by Shawn Koopmans of Picton, Ontario. Calving at 1 year and 10 month, Ashlyn produced 10,671 kg milk, 447 kg fat (4.2%) and 3.1% protein (3.1%) in 305 days, with BCAs of 484-497-457. Ashlyn also is now #2 all-time in her age class for fat production. Ashlyn is sired by the American sire Ecuafarm Kaiser Royalty and is out of Koopycrest P Per Ali Ariel VG-85, who was the previous record holder for milk in the Yearling age category! Establishing a new Three Year Old All Time 305 day record for Milk is Richford Diamond Jack Lydia VG-85. Lydia was bred by Don Richardson of St. Marys, Ontario and is owned by Bernard Plante of St-Bruno, Quebec. Calving at 3 years and 1 month, Lydia produced 12,439 kg milk, 486 kg fat (3.9%), and 388 kg protein (3.1%) in 305 days with BCAs of 460-446-441. Lydia also now ranks #2 all time protein among Three Year Olds. Lydia is sired by Semex sire Oceanbrae Diamond Jack and out of Oceanbrae Jurist Liza GP-83, a high producing cow for the Richford herd. Eclipsing Lydia for 305 day protein in the Three Year Old age group is Richford Pingerly Saffron VG-86-2y, bred by Don Richardson of St. Marys, Ontario and owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, Prince Edward Island. Saffron recently completed a 305 day record after calving at 3 years and 4 months where she produced 393 kg protein to set this new record. She also produced 11,400 kgs of milk with BCAs of 411-328-432. Saffron is sired by #1 LPI sire Treeton Pingerly, an Australian Illawarra from Semex. The top three placings for All-Time protein production by a Three 18

CMSS Improver 2019


Year Old are all new, with Saffron and Lydia just barely topping Serol Dutch Abrielle VG-85, who produced 380 kg protein in 305 days. Calving at 3 years and 2 months, Abrielle produced 11,349 kg milk, 451 kg fat (4.0%) and 380 kg protein (3.4%) with BCAs of 431-421-442. She was bred by Ferme Serol of Roxton Falls, Quebec and was purchased in their 2016 dispersal sale by Ferme Britannia SENC of St-Valerian, Quebec. Setting a new All Time Record for 305d Milk by a Five Year Old is Oceanbrae TP Jocelyn VG-87. Calving at 5 years and 8 months, Jocelyn produced 12,454 kg milk, 415 kg fat (3.3%) and 383 kgs protein (3.1%) with BCAs of 401-335-379. Jocelyn is bred and owned by Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, Prince Edward Island and is sired by Treeton Pingerly. Jocelyn is also now #3 all time for protein by Five Year Olds. Finally, the breed also has a new All Time Leader for 305d Protein by a Five Year Old. This title now belongs to Koopycrest Logic Ali Anne VG87, bred and owned by Shawn Koopmans of Picton, Ontario. Calving at 5 years 11 months, Anne produced a 305 day record of 11,962 kg milk, 524 kg fat (4.4%) and 390 kg protein (3.3%) with BCAs of 370-406-372. Anne is sired by the well-known US sire GMC Rebel Logic, and she is the dam of current Semex young sire Koopycrest Anecdote-P.

Country Report: United States by Thomas Landrum, AMSS President

Carla Stetzer (right) congratulating Ashley Brandel upon selecting Maple Fudge of Twelve Oaks as Grand Champion at World Dairy Expo 2019 Bonjour and greetings from the other country down under. Hopefully, 2019 has been a successful year so far in the dairy and cattle business. Obviously, hardships abound for the U.S. Dairyman in current and past years. There appears to be some promise of betterment in the remainder of the year. The American Milking Shorthorn Society (AMSS) continues to utilize USLGE funds, and thus Keith and Donnette Fisher were able to attend the Canadian Milking Shorthorn Field Day hosted by the Ashton family at Port Perry, Ontario. Likewise, they were able to tour several farms in their two-day trip. They focused heavily upon breeding strategy. Concern for the lack of U.S. semen availability was also noted, due to required testing. It seems that clever folks should be correcting this issue between the two countries. Former AMSS Secretary Kate Smith and Ayrshire Secretary, Becky Payne traveled in January 2018 to Holstein Canada in Brantford, Ontario to attend a seminar on the ABRI ILR2 data system. The system is utilized in Australia as well and offers several advantages achieved by other breed systems. AMSS is painfully aware of our current system antiquity 20

CMSS Improver 2019


and the limitations it places upon the office operation efficiency. Hopefully, someday soon, we can muster enough fortitude and resources to modernize our current methodology. Ideally, this should occur with multiple breed involvement and consolidation of services. We used our remaining USLGE allotment to finance a trip to Australia to attend the Red Cow Conference. The tour included stops in Adelaide, Mount Gambier, and concluded in Melbourne. Mike and Karen Bodey of Ohio utilized these funds. The U.S national shows highlighted some very dairy individuals. Several would qualify as bull mothers.

Of special interest is BDF Madness Marsha, a homebred three-year-old winning two national shows and placing well in a third. She is owned by Butts Dairy Farm, Cory, Indiana. The AMSS funded its annual Bull Book again for 2018 and 2019. Hopefully, it has made its way to Canada. The book designates semen availability and parentage, A2 traits, and blood percentage. The catalog identifies thirty-six bulls with additional breed characteristics noted. Several listed are with Canadian exposure or influence. The year 2018 was rather less than typical for the AMSS. We registered 2,157 head of cattle and transferred 1,077. The results were tabulated from 420 National members, 53 Associate members, and 793 Junior members. Eleven hundred and forty cows were classified from 160 herds. The good news and the bad, registrations were down somewhat, but the Junior numbers have grown. Our overall numbers are only somewhat non-sequitur but very much ameliorate with further growth. Our youth program has indeed grown and hopefully survives in a very tough market. As Shakespeare quoted in Macbeth, “If you can look into seeds of time and say which grain will grow and which will not, speak then to me.� Our Juniors are indeed our future and indeed we are wellfitted for the future. They will grow. We look forward to our national meeting in Plainfield, Indiana CMSS Improver 2019

on June 17-22. Hopefully, some Canadians will be able to attend. We look forward to you joining our event and sharing with us the common Milking Shorthorn bond. Finally, we are so pleased to announce Brenda J. Gudex as our new Executive Secretary. Brenda brings the skillset, the background, and the enthusiasm needed for the position. Many of our breeders are acquainted with Brenda and thus she will adapt quickly. Officially, she began her employment April 22, 2019.

Proposed Bylaw Amendment The CMSS Board of Directors has proposed the following amendment to the CMSS Bylaws, to be voted on at the 2019 Annual General Meeting on July 27th, 2019 in Schomberg, Ontario: Addition to section 20. Special Considerations for Registration 4. Male animals born after January 1, 2020 will require a DNA test to verify parentage to be eligible for registration. Rationale: The majority of other Canadian dairy breeds have adopted a policy to verify the parentage of bulls in order to maintain herd book accuracy. This brings the CMSS in line with other breeds as well as other international Milking Shorthorn societies.

Proposition d’amendement d’un article des Statuts Le conseil d’administration de la SCSL a proposé l’amendement suivant aux Statuts de la SCSL. Ceci fera l’objet d’un vote à l’Assemblée générale annuelle 2019 qui aura lieu le 27 juillet prochain à Schomberg (Ont.) : Ajout à la section 20. Considérations particulières pour l’enregistrement 4. Afin d’être éligibles à l’enregistrement, les animaux mâles nés après le 1er janvier 2020 devront avoir leur ADN testé à des fins de vérification de la parenté. Raisonnement : La majorité des autres races laitières canadiennes ont adopté une politique de vérification de la parenté de taureaux afin de conserver l’exactitude de leur livre généalogique. De cette manière, la SCSL sera en ligne avec les autres races et les autres sociétés internationales du Shorthorn Laitier. CMSS Improver 2019

Thoughts on Genetic Diversity in Canadian Milking Shorthorns by Ryan Barrett, CMSS Secretary-Manager In looking at the list of Society members that appears in the back of this edition of the Improver, one of the first things that stands out to me is how many members have less than 20 years of experience in the Milking Shorthorn breed. In fact, I count only 10 prefixes with current membership that were registering cattle before 2000. This speaks to the turnover in our breed in the past generation as well as the fact that our breed has attracted a large number of new breeders to take up the mantle from previous generations of breeders who have retired or exited the dairy industry. While there is great opportunity in new breeders building new herds, one challenge that I come across is discussing genetic expansion with those who are relatively new to Milking Shorthorns. It is not common in the Canadian dairy industry to have a majority of registered animals having purity percentages less than 100% purebred. I wrote a larger article on the history of genetic expansion for the 2016 Improver, and I don’t plan to just repeat myself from that article. However, there are a points I’d like to touch on with regards to genetic diversity from a breed society standpoint. In August 2018, the Canadian Dairy Network’s annual inbreeding update showed that the Milking Shorthorn breed had an average inbreeding level of 2.75%, by far the lowest level of the Canadian dairy breeds. In comparison, the value for Holsteins is 7.76% and the value for Jerseys is 6.33%, while the value for Guernsey (a breed with smaller Canadian population size than ours) is 6.42%. This is advantageous, as it means that the average Canadian Milking Shorthorn is less likely to suffer the effects of inbreeding depression, which is often expressed in lower fertility rates, more genetic disorders, reduced longevity, and lower production potential. How have we achieved this lower inbreeding level? By incorporating Shorthorn genetics from other countries that is largely unrelated to prevalent North American genetics, as well as integration of some other red breed genetics. There are some that lament the fact that modern 24

CMSS Improver 2019


Milking Shorthorns have sacrificed their “purebred” nature with nostalgia for the days when most Canadian Milking Shorthorns were purebred (or close to it). However, I would argue that if the breed leaders of the 1980s and 1990s had not pursued a policy of genetic expansion, our breed may be largely extinct today. In fact, the breed has grown in both registered animals and members in the past few years. Individual animals are setting new all-time records for production each year, and the level of conformation (particularly udder conformation) has never been better in our breed. At the same time, our breed still leads the industry for fertility and longevity, indicating that we have not traded the durability and workability traits that the Shorthorn breed is known for while seeking to improve productivity and profitability. Nonetheless, there is always a need for balance. To ensure the breed continues to excel for fertility, longevity, and ease of management, we need to retain breed identity and a majority of “Shorthorn genes” in our cattle. That is why our herdbook shows the purity percentage for each animal, helping breeders in making breeding decisions. In addition, our Syndicate program with Semex will continue to pursue bulls with purity of 75% or higher in order to ensure that higher purity options are available both for Canadian breeders as well as breeders in other Shorthorn countries. The number of animals registered with a non-MS sire is relatively few each year, but a number of AI sires available from other countries have purity percentages less than 75% purity, so it is wise to have a balance of sires available, both in terms of purity percentage as well as actual genetics. One challenge that I foresee in the immediate future for Canadian breeders is the consolidation happening in the AI industry in North America. Where there were six or seven AI units with teams of Milking Shorthorn sires available just a few years ago, now there are really only three companies carrying Milking Shorthorn semen. This limits choice and has the potential to limit genetic diversity as well. In the United States, there is a well-established network of breeders who privately collect Milking Shorthorn bulls and sell semen across the country. Unfortunately, almost all of this semen is unavailable to Canadian breeders, as very few of these bulls are ever tested and collected for export. This is a conversation we have had with American breeders, and we hope to develop opportunities to collaborate on collection of some private bulls for export to Canada in the near future, but we have not been able to make much progress on to-date. CMSS Improver 2019

25


So, what are our options moving forward? Firstly, our Board is committed to continuing our Syndicate program with Semex. Thus far, the proof results of sires proven through this program have been positive, and recently released bulls have high potential. Nonetheless, this program is only entering a bull per year, which is simply not enough choice in sires for Canadian breeders. We have no control over the number of bulls or the bulls chosen in other countries, though I have provided feedback to national sire selection committees on the type of genetics we are seeking in Canada. Here are a couple of ideas that Canadian breeders could pursue to provide more choice and genetic diversity moving forward: 1. Private collection of Canadian bulls. While the Canadian market is not large, it might be worthwhile exploring some limited private collection of Milking Shorthorn sires in order to provide additional choice and diversity of genetics. This could be particularly necessary in identifying/developing a 100% purebred option of high genetic merit. There are not a lot of options for private collection facilities in Canada, but there may be a role for either individual breeders or the Society to pursue this avenue further. 2. Semen importation and reselling by the CMSS. The Society has done this in the past with both American and British bulls without being a large financial risk. It may be necessary to expand our efforts in working with foreign breeders/breed societies to develop inventories of exportable semen on mutually agreeable sires. This is not likely to be a low-cost option, but it may be more viable in getting access to some top genetics from around the world. As always, I’m very open to ideas and options from the membership on how the Society can better serve your needs. We will continue to maintain a list of available sires (printed in the Improver and on the website) and I will continue consulting with our colleagues in other Milking Shorthorn countries to increase access to high quality sires. This is one reason why I request an update for the Improver from these countries each year. However, it is important that we find ways to engage our fellow international breeders, educate ourselves on their genetics, and identify genetics that would benefit herds around the world if they were more readily available.

2018 Field Day and AGM: Ashtonia Herd, Port Perry, ON The Society held our annual Field Day and AGM on July 28th, 2018 at Kefay Farms, home of Ashtonia Milking Shorthorns and the Ashton family. It had been very hot and dry in advance of the Field Day, but that week had seen a change in the weather, a cooling of temperatures, and some welcome rain for Ontario farmers. Thankfully, the rain that fell that day took place after we were all safely in the machine shed having lunch! The day started with a tour of the Kefay/Ashtonia herd. The Ashtons have five breeds in their herd, with Milking Shorthorns first added about ten years ago. A standout in their herd was North Stars Jack Dorito VG88, purchased last fall after being named Hon. Mention Grand Champion at the National Show. She was newly fresh and looks certain to add some more points to her score. Recently, Rob has had an unwelcome string of bull calves from his Milking Shorthorns, but there are some more Shorthorn heifers coming along in the heifer pens. Following a great beef-on-a-bun meal, breed awards were presented. The 2018 Cow of the Year Award was presented to Richford Ironman Iceland, owned by Don Richardson. John, Rebecca, and William Haggett of Fieldcrest Farms were in attendance to accept the Distinguished Service Award presented posthumously to John’s parents, Barry and Jean Haggett. Former CMSS Secretary James Knott said a few words to honour Barry and Jean for their contributions to the breed. Following a lively fun auction with items from a number of generous donors and fellow breeders, the Annual Meeting was held. Keith and Donnette Fisher from Pennsylvania were in attendance and brought greetings from the United States. President Don Richardson and Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett presented the actions and financials for the Society from the past year. 2017 was a financially successful year for the Society, and plans for promotion and breed growth in the near future were discussed. Thanks to the Ashton family for their generous hospitality...it was a great day! 32

Herd Visits in Quebec/Ontario - May 2019 In early May, CMSS Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett was able to do a number of herd visits in Quebec and Eastern Ontario, primarily with producers new to the breed. Ryan visited fourteen herds and was able to assist with completing registrations, transfers, and memberships, as well as providing information on available sires and Society services. Au début du mois de mai, le secrétaire du SCSL, Ryan Barrett, a pu effectuer un nombre de visites de troupeaux au Québec et l’Est de l’Ontario, principalement auprès de producteurs nouveaux dans la race. Ryan a visité 14 troupeaux et a été en mesure d’aider à compléter les enregistrements, les transferts et les adhésions, ainsi qu’à fournir des informations sur les taureaux disponibles et les services de la Société.

Recent Changes to Milking Shorthorn Classifications In the past year, the CMSS Board of Directors has approved the following changes to the classification scorecard for the Milking Shorthorn breed: 1. Within Feet and Legs, the trait Bone Quality has been decreased from 12% weighting to 8%. In turn, one percent weighting has been added to Heel Depth, Foot Angle, Rear Legs Side View, and Rear Legs Rear View. 2. Ideal linear code for Bone Quality is now 8 or 9 (previously only 9). 3. Increased severity of discrimination on codes 8 or 9 for Height at Front End, with decreased discrimination on code 4. 4. Ideal codes for Chest Width now codes 6 and 7 (previously 7). Increased discrimination for animals with codes 1, 2 or 3. 5. The trait formally known as Angularity changed to Dairy Capacity. 6. Research traits Foot Composite and Front Leg View were added to the scorecard, currently with no weighting toward final score. L’année dernière, le Conseil CMSS d’administration a approuvé quelques changements à la carte de pointage de classification pour la race Shorthorn Laitier: 1. Dans la catégorie Pieds et membres, le trait qualité de l’ossature a été réduit de 12% à 8%. Une pondération de 1% a été ajoutée à la profondeur du talon, l’angle du pied, la vue côté-membres arrière et la vue arrière-membres arrière. 2. Le code linéaire idéal pour la qualité de l’ossature est maintenant de 8 ou 9 (précédemment, seulement 9). 3. L’augmentation de discrimination sur les codes 8 ou 9 pour la hauteur è l’avant-train, avec une discrimination réduite sur le code 4. 4. Codes idéaux pour la largeur du poitrail maintenant les codes 6 et 7 (précédemment 7). Discrimination accrue pour les animaux avec les codes 1, 2 ou 3. 5. Le trait formellement connu sous le nom d’angularité a été changé en capacité laitière. 6. Les caractéristiques de recherche composite du pied et vue membres avants ont été ajoutées à la carte de pointage, sans aucune pondération pour le score final. CMSS Improver 2019

Country Report: Australia by Michael Tuhan, Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia Milk production in Australia has been in decline over recent years, and the decline has been accelerated by drought across large areas of the country this past year. While the number of Illawarra’s in herd recording has declined, it has been at a slightly lower rate than the total population so we are at least holding our own as a breed within the industry. Registrations are steady at around 1200 per year. Classification however has been at a lower than desirable level. To address this the Society has introduced a rebate for all Young Sire daughters classified to make it more attractive for breeders to classify and ensure that more data can be collected to contribute to more reliable bull proofs. As a breed we are conscious of maintaining genetic diversity and also a reasonable level of breed purity such that we maintain our key breed traits. To that end we are continuously monitoring international Red breed populations to identify genetics that may benefit and compliment our breed. We are fortunate to have ready access to Canadian genetics through Semex. This is not always the case with AMSS genetics and therefore in 2018 we made the decision to directly import semen from the bull Kuszmar Stroker Ace. While our preference would be to access genetics through a commercial A.I. centre, this exercise allowed us to access an elite production and type backed pedigree that would otherwise not have become available to us. It is certainly very pleasing to see Illawarra genetics succeeding all over the world. The performance of Treeton Pingerly in Canada is testament to the potential of the breed to have a large impact within the International Milking/Dairy Shorthorn population. As a breed we are also very aware that the level of Holstein blood within pedigrees can restrict their use in some countries and this is something we are certainly conscious of when selecting our young sires. ABS Australia has made the decision to no longer take on Illawarra young sires. Fortunately, Genetics Australia has taken up a large amount of the “slack” so far by taking on 3 new young Sires in 2018 – Thompson, Montagna and 42

Jazzy. All of these bulls should have semen available for export. In March I attended the International Red Dairy Breeds Federation conference in South Australia. Discussions around red breed Genomics made up a large proportion of the conference. Genomics for our breed still looks a fair way off at this point, and almost certainly won’t happen without some level of international collaboration. There were however some positive discussions at the conference and as a breed we are now looking to work toward collecting DNA from Elite females and family lines. The famed Ovensdale stud is now two parts of the way through a three stage dispersal. While it will be sad to see the end of this iconic herd, it has created opportunity for breeders to access these elite genetics. The demand for the Ovensdale cattle was tremendous, especially the second stage sale which recorded a very strong average in the face of a significantly depressed current market for dairy cows. The most exciting part for the breed was the amount of buyers that purchased Illawarra cattle for the first time, including several high profile breeders from other breeds.

Country Report: United Kingdom Ros Rimmer, Secretary, Shorthorn Society of the UK & Ireland Wow where did 2018 go? As I write this report, the uncertainty of Brexit continues over here in the UK. As we all wait in anticipation as to the outcome, it will be good to have a conclusion to the process so we can all get on with day to day business. The dairy industry has seen a more settled year in 2018 with milk prices remaining stable, though the very dry summer and lack of forage did make the winter a bit more expensive than normal for some. Luckily as I write this report, the start of spring has been good and several members have managed to get cows out earlier than normal. National milk production so far in 2019 is far exceeding production in 2018 which if, continued, may result in a decrease in UK milk prices over the coming months. Shorthorn Sires UK are pleased to have new bulls to offer to members, and the demand for sexed semen continues to grow. Grazing and organic systems continue to look at the cross-breeding advantages and the Shorthorn breed has a lot to offer these systems. Genomics continues to be the buzz word in the dairy industry here in the UK. Several years ago, our Society Council introduced a mandatory genomic sampling requirement for all registered bull calves. We also have tested a number of mature bulls via semen testing. The result is that we have over 170 samples collected to date. Graham Bell Field Officer comments that “our hope is to share information with overseas herdbooks to ultimately achieve a useful genomic database. We are aware of the need for our UK Dairy Shorthorn proofs to be compatible with Interbull evaluations and are working with Industry partners to that end�. TB continues to be a big frustration for the industry and has had a huge effect on entries to shows and sales this year. We hope that the badger culls will assist with the reduction of cases and that the powers that be realise the devastation it causes within the dairy industry and act on it. The World Shorthorn Conference is in Australia in 2019, and I will pass 44

on the details to the membership 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 on the other side of the world. The 2022 World Conference will be held in the UK to commemorate the Coates Herdbook being 200 years old. I sincerely hope we can entice our friends to cross the waters and join what promises to be a great tour. Rachael Madeley, Publicity, reports that the Dairy Shorthorns have had another impressive year in the show ring. Most notably, one of the highlights has come from Cotonhall Absolute Joy. Bred by the Kite family, this heifer had her first outing at UK Dairy Day, where under the scrutiny of Judge James Lambe, Ballytrain herd, she took the Championship title. From here, Joy, now owned in partnership by Wilson & McLean, went to The Dairy Show at South West show ring. Seimon Thomas had no hesitation placing her Champion. She went on to win the Interbreed heifer title before being tapped out as Reserve Grand. For such a young animal this is a truly marvellous entrance into the show ring. All the judges agreed that she “is close to perfection, an exceptional young animal that is world class.” Another outstanding achievement came from James Lambe with Ballytrain Bloom 30th, who won Interbreed Champion at Balmoral. This is the first time a Shorthorn has ever taken the crown here since the show opened 150 years ago. The interbreed judge stated that “she was an outstanding example of the breed displaying strength and dairyness, she excelled on parade with superb locomotion and style”. Bloom finished off her show year by winning the Championship at Tullamore show.

It has been great to see the continued enthusiasm of the youngsters of the Dairy Shorthorn Society. This year we had two teams that competed in the fourth National Young Stars and they both did the Society proud, placing first and third in such a closely competitive race to the finish line. The All Breeds All Britain Calf Show is always a hive of activity for the young members and I look forward to seeing them flourish and continue their success in 2019 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 who will help arrange farm visits.

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

2018 has been another full year for NZ Milking Shorthorn breeders. Weather has once again treated us to its many different moods with a very wet winter/spring, then a very early dry summer with some areas only getting some autumn rain now. At the time of writing the last report for The Improver, a number of our members had participated in a NZMSA run Conference Tour, in Australia, taking in Queensland and some of New South Wales. This year saw 5 members of the association attend the recent International Red Dairy Breeds Federation Tour and Conference in South Australia and Victoria. Following this, the NZMSA held its annual conference here in the Manawatu region. The conference had a number of herd visits and a wide range of activities, including a visit to a robotic dairy farm, a farm which has built a barn and the annual Northbrook On-farm Sale with local branch members also putting up some sale animals. Bull Team RBG marketed with Semex two bulls through its breeding scheme in 2018. One polled, A2A2 bull, Brecon Pohara S1S (a Carbo son), and one white bull, Brecon White Knight (a Brecon Egmont son). The 2019 bull selection is now completed and this year Semex will be marketing two young bulls. Brecon Kaikoura (a Brecon Egmont son, out of Brecon Turbo dam) and Northbrook Noah (a V Foske son, out of Northbrook Way). Mycoplasma Bovis You may have heard that in mid-2017 Mycoplasma bovis was found in NZ. This has affected those of us who show, with most shows and local boys and girls calf clubs in NZ cancelled during 2018 and into 2019. The government is keen to eradicate this disease. However, the later half of 2019 will see a number of shows return and the return of the New Zealand Dairy Event is scheduled for 29-31 January 2020 (visitors welcomed).

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