AGA Executive Committee

Gelbvieh Literacy I bought a used truck the other day for choring around the farm. I paid $2,000 for the truck and had to get a license for it. But first I had to re-title it and insure it. This all cost me around $150, more or less, and I got a license plate and a registration. They wouldn’t tell me anything about the miles per gallon or how much power it had; or how many miles it had left in it or if it needed maintenance. They certainly would not tell me if this make was better or worse than one from another company. They couldn’t help me figure out a possible value for the truck if I was to re-sell it later; and they sure didn’t plan on any advertising so that I could get more resale value. But if I resell it, the new owner will be required to pay around 6 or 7 percent of the sale price plus title charge so they can own and use the truck. I compare what I got for that truck’s registration fee to what I get for an assessment for one of my registered Gelbvieh. With the American Gelbvieh Association, I get an entire toolbox full of services, records, marketing and assistance. The AGA staff and the Board of Directors devote tremendous time and consideration planning, researching, debating and deciding how your monetary investment is spent and where to focus efforts to insure sustainability and profitability for the Gelbvieh breed and its membership. The result is a host of tools available to you as a member and from the assessment of your Gelbvieh cattle. If all the tools are used, we are all better able to advance the breed above the average standards of the cattle industry. If we only use a few of the tools, and only report a part of our data, a hole is left in the data set and our predictions become guesses. The result of which is slower progress in our individual herds, and the Association as a whole. The beef industry is wild with optimism, record-low inventory, increased worldwide demand and unheard of dollar values for cattle. As we continue with bull sale season and begin our breeding seasons, we need to take advantage of the tools and resources made available through the AGA to advance our programs and our breed. 4 | March 2012

Take the steps necessary to incorporate ultrasound in to your spring management. Use the new online registry system to evaluate your strengths and deficiencies. Balance those traits with matings that place your genetics at the top of the industry. Select for the most of the best! Strive to create the next breeding piece so the rest of the industry can advance with Gelbvieh genetics that meet or exceed industry standards and our customers will be profitable with better growth, carcass and maternal production. A hot button phrase becoming increasingly apparent in our society is agriculture literacy. Urban folks, universities, and government entities are acknowledging how uninformed and uneducated the general public is about agriculture. In our own world as Gelbvieh producers, we need to be aware of our constituencies and their lack of knowledge and education about our breed. Our business at home, as well as your business referred to as the American Gelbvieh Association, is dynamic where the only constant is change. We all must empower ourselves with current information to make the right decisions. It is imperative that the industry recognizes our literacy. Take time to support another breeder’s sale. Invest the time and money to attend an educational symposium. I recently attended a cow-calf college at the US MARC. I will guarantee you that the participants noticed the four Gelbvieh seedstock producers that were in attendance. We need your support to advance our Gelbvieh agenda. The staff and Board are merely stewards of your business entitythe AGA. So get out there, make the right decisions; sing the song of great Gelbvieh genetics. Stop the naysayers, correct their misinformation and become advocates for Gelbvieh literacy! Mark Goes is the president of the American Gelbvieh Association and owns M&P Gelbvieh in Odell, Neb.

When Breeding for Carcass Traits, Don’t Forget Tenderness! In 1994, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) concluded after testing 1,663 cattle that marbling improved juiciness and flavor but had little effect on tenderness. Beef needs to be tender to make it the great piece of meat that today’s consumers crave and are willing to pay extra to get.

Tenderize your beef with bulls from Rogers Valley Farm The fastest and easiest way to improve tenderness in your herd is to use a bull that has proven tenderness genetics. At Rogers Valley Farm, we’ve used DNA technology to identify and measure these economically important traits. Our dams and herdsires are selected for their tenderness genetics as well as growth and reproduction. With our genetics, you can add tenderness without losing performance. For information on our bull offerings or to purchase semen from our tenderness sires, call Ronald Rogers at 660-375-7266. See our website for more information and data on all our bulls.

Building Value Into Your Cattle Many seedstock producers struggle with ways in which to build value into their cattle without going overboard on expenses. Never before has the market for selling bulls been more competitive. Fewer national cow numbers means fewer bulls needed by commercial producers. The market share is there, but you have to be fundamentally sound in providing information, services and the right product to gain it. There are several general ways of doing so: Register and transfer your cattle. Pedigree and performance documentation is what makes registered cattle worth more than their commercial counterparts. The transfer of registration certificates not only documents pedigree and performance information but also allows the buyer to get updated EPDs on their purchases. Keep excellent records on your cattle. Surveys of commercial producers show that 89 percent of them use genetic evaluation tools such as EPDs and DNA tests to determine their bull-buying decisions. If you don’t like gathering and compiling records on your cattle, you will never compete with those producers who do. Do you want to attract just 11 percent of the total producers who are buying the product that you are selling? Gather, compile and evaluate economic information. Follow-up with your customer who fed out a set of feeders and find out how those calves sired by your bulls performed in all phases while being fed to finish. Performance, carcass and economic information included in the pen closeout are invaluable information for you to evaluate your own breeding program. As well, find out how much money they made relative to other pens of cattle. It���s about making your customer money. Some say their customers sell their calves at weaning and don’t care about carcass traits. Be assured the guy next in the production chain does and will quit buying those calves if they don’t meet his standards and level of productivity for profitability. The information that can be tracked allows for no one to hide how their product is performing in all phases of the production chain. 6 | March 2012

Value based marketing has changed how cattle are priced and allows for true price discovery of individual carcasses. If calves sired by your bulls don’t meet the standards they will be discounted to those that do and that feedback will eventually make your customer go to another supplier. Commercial producers don’t just buy bulls, they buy philosophy. When one looks at the most successful producers in the country you will see that they always have one thing in common: they are able to articulate what they believe in (their philosophy) and what their program stands for. • What do you believe in? • How is it different from that of your competitors? • What guarantees do you make on your product? • How does your philosophy on beef production reflect in the cattle you sell? • How will you help potential producers become more profitable? In what ways will you help build value into your customers’ calves? Will you assist them in getting females consigned in a Maternal Edge sale? Will you assist in paying for carcass data to be collected? Promote your cattle. Keep in mind that marketing and promotion take many forms, such as print advertising, direct mail, telephone calls, herd visits, the development of a website, or the show ring. What works for you depends on your own individual situation and philosophy. The American Gelbvieh Association can assist you in developing a well-rounded marketing program through the many services that it offers to members. People do business with people they like and trust. Build trust. People pay more for cattle from people they know operate their business with integrity. A survey conducted during the 2012 AGA Annual Convention recently held during the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo., proves the optimism of Gelbvieh breeders. When asked: Regarding your cow numbers, in the future do you intend to, increase number of cows, remain the same or decrease number of cows. Of Continued on page 8

the respondents, 61 percent said they plan to increase, 35 percent responded remain the same, and only 4 percent responded decrease. A significant shift in demand and price trends drives the current optimism. One can see this shift when comparing figures from the last three years of the National Gelbvieh and Balancer® Sale. In 2010 the sale had a gross of $105,100 on 24 Lots for an average price of $4,379. The 2011 sale grossed $190, 250 on 28 Lots for an average sale price of $6,795. This year’s 2012 National Sale grossed $212,000 for an average of $8,480 on 25 Lots. This trend has been seen the past two years in sales across the country for producers who are building value into their cattle by doing the things and raising the product that buyers are demanding. We must ask ourselves if we are doing what it takes to take advantage of this trend and opportunity. An unknown author wrote, “Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the one you miss.” Frank Padilla is the director of breed promotion for the American Gelbvieh Association.

The National Gelbvieh and Balancer® Sale kicked off the 2012 sale season with a bang, posting an increased average of $8,480 on 25 lots. Held annually during the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver, Colo., the National Gelbvieh and Balancer Sale was the first beef cattle sale of the NWSS. The standing room only crowd proved the excitement for and interest in Gelbvieh and Balancer genetics by seedstock breeders and commercial cattlemen. With a total gross of $212,000, the average for the 2012 sale was a 20 percent increase over last year’s sale, and a 75 percent increase from the sale two years ago. The high-selling lot of the National Gelbvieh and Balancer Sale was Lot 1 at $22,500, the 2012 Breeder’s Choice Gelbvieh Bull Futurity champion. Bred by Plateau Gelbvieh, Peetz, Colo., PLA Big Dog 101Y is a January 29, 2011 purebred son of HYEK Black Impact 3960N. He is homozygous polled, double black and boasts a tremendous EPD profile of: CE 107; BW 0.8; WW 47; YW 81; Milk 18; CW 21; RE 0.23; CV 21.84 and FM 10.42. After active bidding, Locust Hill Farms, Ruffin, N.C., purchased full possession PLA Big Dog. Semen packages were purchased by the following breeders: D Bar D Gelbvieh, Hazelton, N.D.; CJ & L Livestock, Hermosa, S.D.; Diamond D Gelbvieh, Mandan, N.D.; Two Step Ranch & McCabe Cattle Co., Farley, Iowa; and Chimney Butte Ranch, Mandan, N.D. The second high-seller of the day was Lot 10 at $20,000. This was the pick of the 2011 bull or heifer crop from Bar Arrow Cattle Company, Phillipsburg, Kan. Flying H Genetics, Arapahoe, Neb., was the winning bidder. Bar Arrow Cattle Company showed the grand champion Pen of 5 Gelbvieh bulls and reserve grand champion Pen of 3 Balancer bulls at the 2012 National Western Stock Show. Lot 5 was the sale of 50 percent cloning right on the black, homozygous polled, purebred donor dam EGL G565, consigned by Boehler Gelbvieh, Orleans, Neb. EGL G565 has produced three AI sons including Ludacris, Big N’ Rich, and Drew, and has generated $115,350 in sales at the National Gelbvieh Sale alone for Boehler Gelbvieh. Eagle Pass Ranch, Highmore, S.D., and

Judd Ranch, Inc., Pomona, Kan., purchased the 50 percent cloning rights for $13,000. Wes and Brittney Spencer, Pierre, S.D., offered 50 percent, lifetime embryo interest on BEA Cindy Lou Who 0001X ET as an added lot to the sale.

Seedstock Plus Contributes to Genomic Pioneers Project Seedstock Plus has committed to contributing up to $25,000 to the American Gelbvieh Association’s Genomic Pioneers research project. The Genomic Pioneers project is the process to develop genetically-enhanced (GE) expected progeny differences (EPDs) Gelbvieh and Balancer® genetics. Briefly, GE EPDs, which combine genomic information with current breed genetic evaluation, promise to make EPDs more accurate earlier in an animal’s life. Think here of having the same kind of predictive accuracy for a newborn bull calf that is currently available for a bull with seven or eight progeny that have already been evaluated within a contemporary group. As it is, EPDs are the most accurate genetic evaluation tools available. There is nothing quick, easy or cheap about getting to this next stage of prediction accuracy. The financial commitment from Seedstock Plus to the project was carefully considered. Though it represents a longer term investment, the Seedstock Plus Board of Managers voted unanimously in favor of the expenditure, believing its essential for the future competitive sustainability of Seedstock Plus members and customers. According to Frank Padilla AGA director of breed promotion, “There are three steps in developing GE EPD’s: training, validation and application. AGA

is in the training step of this process, using the discovery population to ‘train’ the panel from which molecular breeding values will be derived. This training step is crucial to the predictive power of the GE EPDs. The training step depends upon DNA samples being submitted to AGA and how well or robust the panel performs. The two following subsequent steps could happen more quickly as they have more to do with applying the results of the panel.” All of this builds on a process AGA began in 2009 through participation in a research project with the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center. In a perfect world, Padilla says results of the initial process will be ready in about a year. “Members of Seedstock Plus have been longtime advocates of providing DNA profiles on cattle sold in sales,” Padilla says. “Seedstock Plus’ generous cash contribution towards funding the Genomic Pioneers research project shows their commitment to the Gelbvieh and Balancer breeds and genomics. It also shows that they are committed to doing everything possible to better serve their customers, providing them information that allows for them to make more accurate decisions in the selection of animals both now and in the future.”

Over 500 Samples Received To date the American Gelbvieh Association has received over 500 samples towards the goal of collecting 800 samples for the Genomic Pioneers research project. In late February, samples from the AGA’s DNA parentage archives were added to this population. The goal remains to have DNA representing every member herd included is this project. If you have not yet submitted a sample there is still time. Sample submission forms as well as more information can be found on the Gelbvieh website at http://www.gelbvieh.org/education/ genomicpioneers.html.

The results of this research project will benefit AGA members large and small. Potential candidates for submission include herd sires used in the 2011 breeding season, ET Donor Dams, Dams of Distinction or Dams of Merit, as well as an older female that has produced daughters in your herd. Please submit your samples and whatever financial contribution you may be able to soon. Initial data from this research will be presented to the AGA Board of Directors in April.

Kansas Man Inducted into American Gelbvieh Association Hall of Fame Roger Gatz of Hiawatha, Kan., was the 2012 inductee into the American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) Hall of Fame. Created as a means to recognize those who have made a lasting contribution to the growth and development of the Gelbvieh breed through the influence of the cattle they have bred, breed promotion efforts or leadership provided to the AGA, the prestigious Hall of Fame award is given annually to a deserving individual. An avid promoter of the Gelbvieh breed and a distinguished list of accomplishments more than qualify Roger to join the nearly 30 other individuals or couples who have a permanent place on the AGA Hall of Fame at the AGA headquarters. Roger’s 25 years of continued service to the Gelbvieh breed began in 1983 with a publication called “Gelbvieh U.S.” Targeted to commercial cattleman, many Gelbvieh breeders credit the publication with generating interest in using Gelbvieh bulls on predominantly British-based cows in the 1980s. In 1986, Roger began working for the American Gelbvieh Association as a fieldman. Soon after, he helped the AGA produce its first in-house, associationowned publication “Gelbvieh World” in July/August of 1986. Roger has continued to provide his services to the association by providing breed promotion photos, contributing to “Gelbvieh World” ad sales and providing marketing expertise. In his role as a fieldman, Roger saw a need for a sales management firm within the Gelbvieh breed. In 1988 Roger began Cattleman’s Connection to promote and manage Gelbvieh only sales throughout the U.S. Five years later, Roger expanded Cattleman’s Connection to include semen sales of only Gelbvieh bulls. While business has expanded to include additional breeds, Roger continually promotes Gelbvieh. When elected to the AGA Board of Directors in 1997, Roger contributed his marketing expertise to co-manage the National Gelbvieh Sale. Two of the three sales he co-managed were the top averaging sales of all breeds during the National Western Stock Show. For the past two years, Roger once again took up the management role and provided his services to manage the National Gelbvieh Sale. With a total gross 16 | March 2012

of $212,000, the average for the 2012 sale was a 20 percent increase over last year’s sale, and a 75 percent increase from the sale two years ago. Further proof of Roger’s commitment to the American Gelbvieh Association has been his attendance at 24 of the last 25 AGA annual conventions. Moreover, he can make the same claim regarding his attendance at the American Gelbvieh Junior Association’s junior national show held each summer. Roger is also an active leader outside of the American Gelbvieh Association. He is a member of the Kansas Livestock Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. He is a founding member of the Hiawatha FFA chapter, where he still devotes many hours of his time. As well, Roger is a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Hiawatha where he is also an usher. In a letter of support for Roger’s nomination into the Hall of Fame, Judd Ranch, Inc., of Pomona, Kan., stated, “Roger Gatz has been the Gelbvieh breed’s number 1 ambassador and promoter for more than 25 years. His cattle knowledge combined with his belief in, and commitment to, the Gelbvieh breed is unparalleled and has influenced numerous individuals to become seedstock producers and an untold number of commercial cattlemen to incorporate Gelbvieh genetics in to their program.

Roger Gatz, pictured with his wife Peg, of Hiawatha, Kan., was the 2012 inductee into the American Gelbvieh Association Hall of Fame.

Mark Goes Receives Gelbvieh Association Member of the Year Mark Goes of Odell, Neb., was named the 2012 American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) Member of the Year. The AGA Member of the Year award is presented annually to an outstanding member who gives their time, talent, and dedication to further the improvement of their state and national association. This year’s honoree has selflessly given his time and talent on each level, exemplifying the qualities and attributes of the award. Mark has been very active in the Gelbvieh breed and the livestock industry. He has been a member of the Gelbvieh Association in Nebraska (GAIN) since 1987 and the American Gelbvieh Association since 1988 as owner of M&P Gelbvieh, which he owns with his wife Patti and daughter Tricia. Mark has served on the Board of Directors for each association, lending his time and input to shape the direction of both associations. He has been a director for seven of the past eight years with GAIN, where he worked to create the GAIN field representative position. Currently, Mark serves on the AGA Board of Directors, and was recently elected as the 28th president of the American Gelbvieh Association. Additionally, he has chaired numerous AGA committees including productivity, finance and national show and has written six published articles in Gelbvieh World. As a champion for youth, Mark and Patti have been junior GAIN sponsors for the last ten years. Moreover, Mark has played an instrumental role in developing and carrying out the American Gelbvieh Junior Association (AGJA) live carcass evaluation contest. His efforts brought the contest from a concept to a reality. Recently, Mark and Patti served on the AGJA Twister Classic host committee which planned and carried out a very successful national show for more than 150 AGJA exhibitors and their families. M&P Gelbvieh has built a reputation of raising high-quality and showring-competitive cattle. M&P Gelbvieh has exhibited cattle at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) for ten years and taken home many purple ribbons. In 2005, PMG Pegasus 01P, a bull bred and raised by M&P Gelbvieh, was


named champion of the Breeder’s Choice Gelbvieh Bull Futurity. They have also exhibited cattle many times at the American Royal, and in 2010 showed the reserve grand champion Balancer® female. Outside of M&P Gelbvieh, Mark is an instructor of livestock production at the Beatrice campus of Southeast Community College located in southeast Nebraska. In 1999, Mark was responsible for adding a registered Gelbvieh and Balancer herd to the beef program at SCC. Southeast

Community College has hosted multiple Gelbvieh tours with a variety of guests including representatives from the Canadian Gelbvieh Association. As an instructor, Mark has been a mentor to SCC students by helping them to exhibit and market Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle at state sales as well as the NWSS and the National Gelbvieh Sale. With a desire to stay on the forefront of issues influencing the beef industry, Mark has attended multiple Beef Improvement

Federation meetings, and represented AGA at the National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium meetings. Mark served as a member of the steering committee for the Nebraska Grazing Conference and is a member of the Nebraska Cattleman’s Association. He was the first certified ultrasound technician in Nebraska and has been performing ultrasound services to Gelbvieh breeders since 1997.

News ‘N Notes news ‘n notes GPA applications due April 15 for the 2011 Management Year Through the American Gelbvieh Association’s Gelbvieh Performance Advantage (GPA) program, AGA members gain recognition for all the data collection they do throughout the year. More importantly, members are able to use the GPA program as a way to set their breeding program apart from others as they provide a value-added service to their customers with the data they collect. GPA applications for the 2011 management year are due on or before April 15. The application is pretty painless – simply requiring members to list the data they have collected during the last year. Members receive points for having growth and performance records, using AI, doing DNA testing, and using sires that excel in tenderness, carcass value, milk and scrotal circumference. The GPA program is unique within the seedstock industry. It provides a means for Gelbvieh breeders, both small and large, to promote the performance aspects of their program. The GPA program has three recognition levels – bronze, silver, and gold – based on the total points received for the performance attributes of each program. From now through April 15, 2012, we will be accepting qualification forms for the third year of this program. Instructions and qualification forms can be found on the AGA website in the Membership/Member Programs section or can be obtained by requesting them from the AGA office. To receive recognition, qualification forms and worksheets should be filled out completely and any supporting documentation included. Multiple memberships that include animals are managed together can be submitted on one application and will be recognized at the achieved level of those grouped memberships.

Bits ‘N Pieces bits n’pieces E. Edd Pritchett Retires as AGA Legal Counsel

Scholarship Winners Announced

During the 2012 American Gelbvieh Association “Blazing New Trails” Annual Convention, Past President Jim Beastrom (pictured on right of photo) recognized the retirement of E.

Sire Summary

Feature feature A Snap Shot of Gelbvieh Proven Sire Trait Leaders The American Gelbvieh Association produces a Sire Summary twice a year following the production of updated EPDs. Typically this is accomplished in January and June/July. Each Sire Summary is comprised of three sections: Progeny Tested Sires, Genetic Indicator Sires, and Trait Leaders. Listed below is a sampling of the list for Trait Leaders from the January 2012 Sire Summary, which is the most recent published Sire Summary. The sires are ranked in descending order from the most favorable value for each trait. The complete Trait Leaders list contains approximately 40 sires for 14 traits and is available on the AGA website at http://www.gelbvieh.org/ education/geneticsandresearch.html or by contacting the AGA office at 303-465-2333. There are several criteria for a sire to be included in the Trait Leaders list. A sire must have a calf born in the last four years and qualify as a Progeny Tested Sire, meaning they have an accuracy of at least .65 for weaning weight EPD. Sires must also have an accuracy number in the listed trait of at least .50. For carcass trait leaders, sires must have either five carcass progeny Reg. # Birth Date

or 25 female progeny ultrasound records to be listed. For feedlot merit (FM) and carcass value (CV) trait leaders, indexes that do not have accuracies, sires must have a yearling weight (YW) accuracy of at least .50 to be included. The American Gelbvieh Association takes appropriate research and editing measures to ensure the quality of the information published in the Sire Summary and Trait Leaders list. However, the Association does not guarantee or assume responsibility for the correctness or completeness of the information presented in these reports. The data presented is designed to be used for informational purposes only and is not an indicator of actual value of the animal or its progeny or a guarantee of performance. Any conclusions drawn from the information presented are that of the user alone and are not to be attributed to the Association. The AGA has also published a Young Sire Trait Leaders list for Gelbvieh and Balancer速 sires. Turn to pages 68-79 of this March issue of Gelbvieh World to read the Young Sire Trait Leaders list as well as the criteria used to generate this list.

Beastrom Donation Heifer Breaks AGJA Fundraising Record By Dana Stewart, AGA Director of Member Services and Junior Advisor

the heifer at the conclusion of the sale with half of the proceeds going to AGJA. The heifer sold for $5,000 to The Dromgoole’s Heaven, Richmond, Texas, bringing the final fundraising total to $16,530. Special thanks to Jim and Barb Beastrom and family for donating an outstanding heifer and to Paul Duxbury for providing extra care and attention for her while at the National Western Stock Show. Thanks also to Roger Gatz for donating a portion of the heifer’s sales back to AGJA

The 2012 American Gelbvieh Junior Association (AGJA) donation heifer, donated by Beastrom Gelbvieh Ranch in Pierre, S.D., set a new fundraising record for AGJA, raising more $16,500 for AGJA programs. The heifer, BEA Miss Black & Gold Classic 1062Y , whose attractive phenotype and solid pedigree gained mass attention, set a new bar. Initial ticket sales by AGJA members and the ticket auction held during the AGA social garnered more than $14,000 in sales. Connor Durham, AGJA member from South Carolina who sold more than 300 tickets prior to the drawing, was on hand to draw the winning ticket. Tickets were collected, shuffled and a winner drawn at the National Gelbvieh and Balancer® Sale held at the National Western Stock Show on January 8. The winning ticket was purchased by newly inducted AGA Hall of Fame honoree, Roger Gatz, for his granddaughter, Lauren. In the spirit of Gelbvieh passion, Roger sold

and to The Dromgoole’s Heaven, who purchased the heifer. Finally, a big thank you to Stuart Wilson and American Live Stock Insurance for continuing a longstanding tradition of donating 30 days of insurance for the heifer following the raffle. The AGJA donation heifer fundraising program will continue in 2013, thanks to a donation pledge from Rippe Gelbvieh to provide another outstanding heifer to benefit the AGJA.

Special thanks to Beastrom Gelbvieh Ranch, Paul Duxbury, Roger Gatz, The Dromgoole’s Heaven, American Live Stock Insurance, and to EACH ticket buyer. With your help it was a record-breaking year!

Gelbvieh cattle and genetics is something I as a breeder have grown to appreciate over the years. I am thankful I was raised in such a great breed and strongly look forward to the future of the Gelbvieh breed. The Junior Board this past fall decided to sit down as a team and look at all the show rules and figure out ways to make the shows portray Gelbvieh and Balancer® cattle in the fairest way we could. The one show we decided to make great changes with is the Steer Show. Within this show we decided to make five major changes which include: • Any steer sired by a 50 percent or greater registered Balancer, hybrid, purebred, or fullblood bull is eligible to show with a registration certificated, performance pedigree, or steer affidavit. • Any steer sired by a multi-sire group is eligible provided that all bulls in the multi-sire group meet the requirements of rule 1. All registration numbers from the sires in the group must be included on the steer affidavit at time of entry. • Any steer sired by a registered Balancer bull that is less than 50 percent Gelbvieh is eligible if the steer’s dam is at least 25 percent registered Gelbvieh. A registration certificate, performance pedigree, or steer affidavit must be included at time of entry. • Any steer sired by a non-registered or non-Gelbvieh bull is eligible to show with a steer affidavit or performance pedigree provided the steer is out of a registered purebred or fullblood Gelbvieh, or Balancer or hybrid female that is at least 50 percent registered Gelbvieh that is a currently assessed and

active female in the year that the steer was born as well as the year and at the time the steer is shown. • In the event the dam of the entered steer is no longer living a hair sample of the dam suitable for DNA testing must be included with the steer affidavit. The protest rule states: All protests against exhibitors, dealing with age or genetic background of show cattle, must be in writing and signed by five active members of the AGJA, accompanied by one hundred fifty dollars in cash, and then presented to the show officials (AGJA Advisors) twelve hours or more before starting of the show. Be sure to look at the new and updated protest procedure in the 2012 handbook. These are the main changes that will be in effect for this year. Remember it is always important to keep hair samples on cattle that leave your herd. No matter what show it is, if a protest is filed we will have to have DNA proof. Also it is always good to keep on hand in case you want to DNA test any of your offspring in the future. If you have any questions regarding these rules, you are welcome to contact me or any other AGJA Board members, or advisors. Let’s continue to carry on the great genetics of the Gelbvieh breed, and show commercial industries what Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle have to offer in their feedlots. Bring your steer to the 2012 Classic this summer and let’s make this year a show to remember. Janelle Hayek is the Ex-Officio member of the American Gelbvieh Junior Association Board of Directors.

On a clear autumn day at Heartland Farms, a crowd of Gelbvieh and Balancer® buyers filled the stands for the 7th Annual Ozark Pride sale. Just as they have for a number of years, Heartland Farms and J Bar M Gelbvieh teamed up to provide a high quality offering for their customers to choose from. Leading the sale of was a flush opportunity of the Lot 1, DCSF Post Rock Wilma 261P1 ET, female that sold for $5,800 C-Cross Cattle and FourMile Gelbvieh Farm. A second flush

opportunity on this female was sold to C-Cross Cattle for $5,000. Wilma 261P1 is the dam of the high selling Post Rock Silver bull. J Bar M owns this great female. The high selling female was Lot 4, VER Lee Ann 650R, a Balancer cow that sold to Lone Oak Gelbvieh for $4,100 and was offered by J Bar M Gelbvieh. 650R was safe in calf to the purebred Hot Fudge bull and is a direct daughter of the famed VER Lee Ann 309M donor cow at Verner Farms. Heartland Farms offered 15 top notch bulls that received a lot of attention on sale day. Lot 53 was the high selling bull and was purchased by John Harris of Arkansas for $3,250. The Ozark Pride sale has become known for selling good cattle, out of some of the most elite cow families in the breed. This was apparent at the end of a great sale day as cattle sold to registered and commercial breeders in eight different states.

A beautiful fall day greeted cattlemen and cattlewomen from 11 states as they evaluated and purchased the Grown on Grass Gelbvieh and Simmental influenced bulls. Bidding was very active as buyers from California to the Carolina’s and Texas to Wisconsin took home these heavy muscled, grass-developed bulls. Topping the Gelbvieh bulls at $4,000 was a 5 Star calving ease Balancer® bull 62 | March 2012

sired by Bennett 1407 N2. His new home is the Spillers Ranch at Miami, Okla. Other top Balancer bulls sold to Kentucky, Arkansas, Wisconsin and Kansas. The only red Gelbvieh bull stayed in Missouri and sold to Josh Witte for $3,600. Topping the sale was Lot 39. This homozygous polled, black Simmental was a son of Overdrive R14 and put a complete package together ranking as a 5 Star bull in all six categories. His new home is at the Espinoza Ranch in Texas. Second high selling Simmental went to Driskell Ranch in Kentucky. The top SimAngus was a double homozygous son of ALL PAYDAY 729 and went home with Trent Donnohue of Appleton City, Mo., for $5,500.

A nice crowd was on hand to evaluate and purchase the results of Tom Scarponcini’s 20 years of breeding Gelbvieh cattle at Brandywine Farms. Every female born before 2008 was in the sale, along with a solid group of bred heifers. The afternoon began with an excellent complimentary brisket lunch catered by Kurt Stiedley’s Rib Crib restaurant. After a great meal we got down to business and had a very solid sale. The commercial support for the sale was overwhelming with much of the sale offering finding homes with commercial producers wanting good solid females that will work. However there were many gems in the offering that found homes with new and established registered breeders. Cattle sold into 12 states and the volume buyer purchased 42 lots. The partnership of Burbank Cattle Co., CJSD Gelbvieh and Brandywine Farms purchased the high selling female for $7,250. The donor quality Lot 29 female is a Kingpin daughter and is the dam of the exciting Seedstock Plus Genetics bull Winthrop. The same partnership, with the additional partner of Mark Hilton, Ind., purchased Lot 52 for $6,500. This Carolina Fortune daughter also has a son, Waldorf, in the Seedstock Plus Genetics line-up. She will enter the donor pen after she has her Shogun calf. The top bred heifer was purchased by volume buyer Rod DeVries, Iowa for $2,750. This Lot 172 Balancer® female is a daughter of the Red Angus bull Algebra I. The Algebra I daughters sold very well all day as did the black Balancer females. Gelbvieh World | 62

The first Friday in December cattlemen gathered in Red House, Va., to bid on a powerful set of bulls offered by Knoll Crest Farm.

Durham Receives All-Around Eagle Pass Ranch Donation Heifer By Dana Stewart, AGA Director of Member Services and Junior Advisor

For Connor Durham, AGJA member from Piedmont, S.C., the trip to the National Western Stock Show was full of firsts. It was Connor’s first trip to the NWSS, where he would be awarded the first Eagle Pass Ranch All-Around Champion Donation Heifer. In 2011, Eagle Pass Ranch of Highmore, S.D., launched a new sponsorship with the American Gelbvieh Junior Association to annually reward the AGJA All-Around Champion during the annual junior classic with a heifer. The heifer is presented during the following National Western Stock Show. Connor placed third at the 2011 AGJA Twister Classic, but was next in line to receive the heifer because the top two individuals had previously won AGJA Donation Heifer Chain heifers, proving that a best effort always pays off. Connor showed the Balancer® heifer, EGL Miss Twister Y174, during the junior show while at NWSS, where she placed first in a large, competitive class. She then represented her class well in the final drive, earning high remarks from Judge Travis Hoffman. Long before Connor arrived in Denver, he began working hard to give back to AGJA for his heifer. Connor attended production sales in the southeast where he sold raffle tickets for the 2012 AGJA Beastrom Donation heifer. A big thank you goes to Eagle Pass Ranch for initiating the AllAround Donation heifer program and for providing an outstanding

inaugural heifer. As a part of the program, the heifer’s first calf will be marketed with the assistance of Eagle Pass Ranch and sold with proceeds benefiting the American Gelbvieh Foundation. Congratulations to Connor on this achievement and thank you to everyone at Eagle Pass Ranch who made the award possible.

Sire Summary

Feature feature Trait Leaders for Young Gelbvieh and Balancer® Sires As part of publishing the American Gelbvieh Association’s proven sire Trait Leaders list, the Association also produced a Young Sire Trait Leader list for young Gelbvieh and Balancer® sires. The information is derived from the January 2012 AGA Sire Summary. A sample of this list, including a select number of traits and limited number of sires, is presented below. A more complete Young Sire Trait Leaders list is available on the AGA website at http://www.gelbvieh.org/education/ geneticsandresearch.html. To be listed in the Young Sires Trait Leaders list, several selection criteria had to be met. First, sires had to be born on or after January 1, 2006, and must have sired at least 20 progeny with weaning data. For the leaders of carcass traits, sires must have an accuracy of at least .20 for both carcass weight and ribeye area EPDs, and at least .15 for marbling EPD. In many cases the sires on this Young Sire Trait Leaders list have acceptable levels of accuracy for the EPD of interest to be listed on the proven sire Trait Leaders lists, but may fall short of the stricter progeny tested sire criteria to be included in that list. An explanation of the risks associated with accuracies and possible change is presented in Table 1. The American Gelbvieh Association takes appropriate research and editing measures to ensure the quality of the information published in the Sire Summary and Young Sire Trait Leaders list. However, the Association does not guarantee or assume responsibility for the correctness or completeness of the information presented in these reports. The data presented Reg. # Birth Date
