Secretary’s Corner

In This Issue...

Ohio Angus Breeders, I hope everyone has been surviving Ohio’s great fluctuation in winter temperatures, and will have enough hay to make it till spring grass arrives. None the less spring is just around the corner, and that means Spring Sale Season! Headlining Spring Angus Sales will be the Angus Super Star Sale at the Ohio Beef Expo. We have compiled a solid offering from many of Ohio’s top breeders as well as several new consignors from out of state. This will surely be a tremendous sale and I encourage everyone to attend. We had a very successful Annual Meeting & Banquet on February 2nd. Complete results of the events can be found on pages 4 & 5. Headlining the event was the record setting Handbook auction the raised $20,450 on the selling of 39 premier pages. Thank you to everyone that attended the banquet and purchased a premier page. The directory is on schedule to be distributed at the Ohio Beef Expo. However, we still have advertising pages available. If you would like to reserve a page, contact me asap to do so and discuss details of your ad. I’d like to Thank, our out going officers Dave Felumlee, President and Bill Levering, Treasurer for their years of service to the Association. Both were instrumental in assisting me last year, as I got settled into the Secretary position.

Industry News & Notes

Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Celebrates an Outstanding Year

(MARYSVILLE, Ohio) – More than 250 producers and leaders in the beef industry assembled at the Columbus Marriott Northwest in Dublin, Ohio on Jan. 26, 2013 for the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) annual meeting and awards banquet. The event featured policy development sessions, OCA’s annual meeting and the OCA’s award banquet. Annual meeting and banquet sponsors who contributed to the success of the event include COBA/Select Sires, CompManagement, Inc., Farm Credit Mid-America, United Producers, Inc., Stark County Cattlemen’s Association and Steve R. Rauch. During the annual meeting, Ohio cattlemen welcomed Kent Bacus, Associate Director of Legislative Affairs in the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Washington, DC office, who gave an update on NCBA activities and discussed many of the issues NCBA is working on for the beef industry. Bacus shared with Ohio’s cattlemen the status of trade agreements with Japan, the outlook on Congress following the election and the current tax situation. Bruce McPheron, Dean and Vice President for Agricultural Administration in the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, discussed the importance of new livestock facilities to student success and the university. OCA President Sam Sutherly of Troy, Ohio, coordinated the policy development portion of the meeting. These resolutions covered a broad range from agriculture policy to cattle health, international markets, live cattle marketing, property rights and environmental issues. In addition, Sutherly shared with members that a committee was formed to further explore an increase to the Ohio Beef Checkoff and that OCA will move forward on the issue when membership indicates their support for holding a referendum. Glen Arnold, OSU Extension Field Specialist, Manure Nutrient Management Systems, presented on the Ohio water quality and nutrient management initiative. He encouraged OCA members to be proactive in taking responsibility to properly manage nutrients in their operation. He noted that this affects

livestock and crop farmers, those who apply manure or use fertilizer, in every Ohio county. Dale Arnold, Director of Energy Services at the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, provided background information on the oil and gas severance tax and how it could affect Ohio. Policy opposing the state’s current severance tax proposal was adopted among others related to the issue. In addition, OCA’s Membership Committee recognized the members of OCA’s Top Hand Recruiting Club. Land O’Lakes Feed and Quality Liquid Feed sponsored the awards. OCA’s officers reported that 2012 was a very strong year for the association and membership renewals for 2013 are on track with previous years. The Beef Improvement Committee gave an update on the Seedstock Improvement Sales and the Ohio Beef Expo. OCA members and guests reconvened that evening for the banquet to celebrate another successful year. An early highlight of the banquet was naming the 2013 Ohio Beef Ambassadors. In its first year of the program, sponsored by the Ohio CattleWomen’s Association and the Ohio Beef Council, 17 youth, ages 16 to 19 competed for the title. Hayley Beck, Huron County; Sierra Jepson, Fairfield County; and Josie Vanco, Gallia County, were chosen to spend the next year sharing their story of agriculture and educating consumers on beef consumption and the industry. Ten scholarships were presented to outstanding youth during the awards banquet. Steve R. Rauch Benchmark of Excellence scholarship recipients included Megan Hunker, Huron County; Bailey Harsh, Delaware County; and Lindsey Grimes, Highland County. Jordan Bonham, Fayette County; Sierra Jepsen, Fairfield County; Shyla Kreager, Licking County; and Jusin O’Flaherty, Cuyahoga County were awarded $1,000 Tagged for Greatness Scholarships, which are funded with the sales of the Ohio Beef license plate. Lauren Prettyman, Marion County; Laura Schmuki, Stark County; and Lydia Ulry, Licking County, received a $1,000 Country Club Scholarship, which was funded by the putt putt course at the 2012 Ohio State Fair. The Ohio CattleWomen’s Association awarded scholarships to Kayla Hinds, Tuscarawas County; Amber Watkins, Logan County;

Igenity® and Angus Genetics Inc.® Announce Enhanced Value to Breed-specific DNA Profile

Igenity®, a Neogen Corporation Company, and Angus Genetics Inc.® (AGI) announce a significant cost reduction to the Igenity Profile for Angus, a leading DNA profile for registered Angus cattle producers in the industry. The Igenity Profile for Angus is now available to American Angus Association® members and clients at a new rate of $47 per test. Additionally, AGI, a subsidiary of the Association, is offering members the opportunity to combine the Igenity Profile for Angus with SNP-based parentage at a new price of $59. “Due to increases in laboratory efficiencies, advances in genomic technology, and upcoming new products, Neogen is pleased to provide additional economic value to American Angus Association members,” says Dr. Jason Lilly, vice president of corporate development for Neogen. “This price adjustment provides Angus seedstock breeders with a cost-effective, high-value alternative for genomic prediction plus parentage.” AGI and Neogen have collaborated in the development and implementation of genomic technology for the benefit of Angus breeders. Genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs), generated by AGI, were launched for Angus cattle in September 2009 incorporating the first Igenity Profile results.

“From the first version of the comprehensive Igenity Profile, to the upgrade to the Igenity Profile for Angus launched in January 2010, as well as the industryleading adoption of SNP parentage for breed registration in 2010, AGI and Igenity have partnered in the development of novel technology for the benefit of the Angus breed,” says Bill Bowman, AGI president and Association chief operating officer. “With this recent announcement, AGI, through its relationship with Neogen, GeneSeek, and Igenity, is able to deliver the proven power of the Igenity Profile for Angus, with or without SNP parentage, at a tremendous value.” Over the past five years, it has been exciting to work with AGI in the delivery of genomic technologies, explains Dr. Lilly. “The recent price adjustment for the widely-adopted Igenity Profile for Angus represents our commitment to provide the best products – and value – to AGI customers. Today, Angus members have even more reason to harness the power of the Igenity Profile to advance their breeding objectives. Looking forward, we are also excited to be working with AGI on the development of new tools for Angus producers based on the GeneSeek® Genomic Profiler Bovine HDTM.” For more information about Igenity, contact your Igenity sales representative, call (877) 443-6489 or visit www.igenity.com/beef.
