VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS It’s Our Business. Own It.

With confidence.

T

o say business paradigms have changed is news to no one. Walk through tall or expansive buildings in most cities and many floors are completely vacant. Banks, which used to occupy multiple floors, typically have one central bank in a community and they barely staff the drive-through windows at the local branches. Depositing a check is as simple as snapping a photo with your smart phone! Large and small companies alike now offer home-based office options that reduce or eliminate commuting, offer more flexibility, reduce employee turnover and save the company money. Data indicates employee retention and job satisfaction increase exponentially. The cattle industry and the entire beef production complex has experienced the same paradigm shift. What was the primary catalyst for change? Arguably, the most significant driver of change is the Internet and access to data. The Internet has given us global access to information, connectivity and mobility. The Internet has also lulled us into thinking that just because

still are some of the most critical responsibilities we have as seedstock suppliers. After all, we don’t risk a “dropped call” when we stand next to a customer and ask the right questions. We don’t risk a data breach when we’re looking over a feedlot and carcass close out summary with a customer or the cattle feeder. We don’t risk misinterpreting a group email when we invite our industry customers and partners to join us and tell us directly, what works and what doesn’t work, and how best to improve. Then, as old fashioned as it may seem, we collectively determine how best to meet our commercial customer and the industry’s needs. Do we need more data? The simple answer is yes. But, we must stay laser focused on developing data tools that are accurate, quantifiable, simple to understand and apply and connected to what makes our customers money. Genetic correlations, genetic and phenotypic trends, terminal sire index and now single-step genomic evaluations are a direct result of forging industry relationships based on objective input. Collectively we recognize the importance of providing tools to

History proves the Charolais legacy has been managed well. The result is wide industry acceptance of an important meat protein. Google found it or Wikipedia said it, it’s true. Hacking, bots and phishing are words that were not in our vocabulary a couple of decades ago. Spam was the questionable canned meat largely consumed by poor college students and had nothing to do with your email inbox. Today, those additions to our vocabulary should set off alarms bells in our minds like the warning lights and barricades at a railroad crossing. A significant consideration, as businesses become more efficient and mobile, is the impact on customer relationships. We’ve seen many of the same mobility changes in the beef industry. However, as the beef industry contracts and continues to signal vertical integration, short-changing customer relationships should be nonnegotiable. The majority of change is good, but history is also a wise teacher. Today, Charolais producers, like the rest of the beef industry, depend on data. Our commercial customers (and all sectors up the supply chain) depend on our data. But, unlike Google or Wikipedia, the data must be accurate, relevant, easily understood and applicable. The data must make our customers’ jobs easier, the product more predictable and improve quality. Although connectivity has moved far beyond party lines and four-digit phone numbers, customer service and solid relationships

improve quality, accuracy and predictability. No bots, no spam, no dropped calls— just a willingness by Charolais seedstock suppliers to listen and respond to industry signals. Data is more critical to the Charolais breed than ever before. Yet, there is an important message we can’t afford lose in the paradigm shift in how we do business. Commercial beef producers have known for nearly a century that Charolais genetics work across all industry sectors. It isn’t an anomaly that Charolais is still a predominant influence in most every feedlot in America. Before we had global access to data or could quantify quality with pin point accuracy or assign a value, the commercial industry knew the importance of Charolais genetics. Today, a new customer can log onto your production sale and make a sight unseen online purchase. Building a new relationship while extending the same customer services and offering the same genetic consultation may present a few more challenges than we have with customers who are frequent buyers. However, both are equally as important. History proves the Charolais legacy has been managed well. The result is wide industry acceptance of an important meat protein. Charolais and the beef industry is ours to own. We own its history and its future.

H

ello, everyone! My name is Kaitlyn Davlin and I have the pleasure of serving as your 2017-2018 Treasurer. I’ve been on the Junior Board for the past two years and am excited to continue my journey with the juniors of the Charolais association. Along with being on the AIJCA Junior Board, I have had the privilege of being a member of the Texas Junior Charolais Association for the past 5 years and am currently serving as President. I am 21 years old and from the small town of El Campo, Texas where my family and I farm corn and cotton as well as run a commercial and purebred Charolais cow-calf operation. I recently graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science, and I am currently attending Texas A&M University where I am pursuing my Masters in ruminant nutrition. When I graduate, I hope to eventually

I ran for office at this past junior national, “What I lack in time, I make up in passion and dedication.” When I attended my first Junior National in Texarkana in 2013, I was the shy kid who sat at the stalls and didn’t venture out to many activities. I didn’t participate in the speaking events or the barnyard olympics, and my dad even had to force me to attend opening ceremonies with the rest of the Texas kids. My biggest regret to this day is feeling so shy and not participating more. Learn from my mistakes! Junior National week is full of countless opportunities for everyone to engage in learning as well as meet new people, take every chance you receive and do it all. Those of you who know me, know that I am anything but shy now. I owe my outgoing personality and confidence to those individuals who encouraged me to branch outside of my comfort zone

Learn from my mistakes!” become an embryologist and further expand my family’s in Texarkana that summer. Thanks to those older juniors cattle operation in South Texas. as well as past junior board members, I’m now the strongEver since I was a very young girl, my dad and I dreamed hearted girl who isn’t afraid of a challenge and will stand of owning a herd of Charolais females. We always kept up to anything. putting it off, and it wasn’t until my freshman year of High In conclusion, I’d like to encourage each and every School that we dove straight in and purchased a herd. one of you to branch outside of your comfort zone and During this point of my life, I was searching hard for that do something you normally wouldn’t. Without the AIJCA, I “something” or “somewhere” in which I fit. I tried playing would not have found my love and passion for the cattle sports and I even tried cheerleading (shocking, I know), industry. This organization has an infinite amount of things but it wasn’t until I began showing cattle that I knew I had to offer. If you get one thing from this article, I hope you will found what I was meant to do for the rest of my life. I didn’t be encouraged to talk to new people, make new friends, and begin showing when I was 8 years old as some others have, don’t be afraid to try new things! I hope to see you all in Des however I have gotten involved quickly and most definitely Moines this June! found where I belong. Some might say that I got into in the AIJCF Scholarship Deadline: April 30 show cattle industry a little late to become as involved in a Early Junior National Entry Deadline: May 1 breed as I have, but as I told my fellow junior board when Late Junior National Entry Deadline: May 10 32  

Extended-Release Injectable Parasiticide 5% Sterile Solution NADA 141-327, Approved by FDA for subcutaneous injection For the Treatment and Control of Internal and External Parasites of Cattle on Pasture with Persistent Effectiveness CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. INDICATIONS FOR USE LONGRANGE, when administered at the recommended dose volume of 1 mL per 110 lb (50 kg) body weight, is effective in the treatment and control of 20 species and stages of internal and external parasites of cattle: Gastrointestinal Roundworms Bunostomum phlebotomum – Adults and L4 Cooperia oncophora – Adults and L4 Cooperia punctata – Adults and L4 Cooperia surnabada – Adults and L4 Haemonchus placei – Adults Oesophagostomum radiatum – Adults Ostertagia lyrata – Adults Ostertagia ostertagi – Adults, L4, and inhibited L4 Trichostrongylus axei – Adults and L4 Trichostrongylus colubriformis – Adults Parasites Gastrointestinal Roundworms Bunostomum phlebotomum Cooperia oncophora Cooperia punctata Haemonchus placei Oesophagostomum radiatum Ostertagia lyrata Ostertagia ostertagi Trichostrongylus axei Lungworms Dictyocaulus viviparus

Lungworms Dictyocaulus viviparus – Adults

Grubs Hypoderma bovis

Mites Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis Durations of Persistent Effectiveness 150 days 100 days 100 days 120 days 120 days 120 days 120 days 100 days 150 days

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extendedrelease anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age. STORAGE Store at 77° F (25° C) with excursions between 59° and 86° F (15° and 30° C). Protect from light. Made in Canada.

Here, T IME IS MEASURED IN

GENERATIONS. That’s why you need LONGRANGE for up to 150 days of parasite control.1 Bloodlines. You’re as proud of yours as you are of theirs. But if you used a short-term dewormer like CYDECTIN® (moxidectin) or DECTOMAX® (doramectin), you may not have been doing your genetics justice. That’s because your cows and heifers were probably reinfected with parasites just halfway through the grazing season – right when they need to gain weight to breed back and give milk.

Only LONGRANGE delivers true season-long control.1

25.4 lbs.

LONGRANGE heifers gained 25.4 lbs. more on average over those treated with DECTOMAX.2

Out here, there is no time for shortcuts. This year, think LONGRANGE.

Warnings And Precautions: For use in cattle only, not for use in humans or other animal species. Keep out of reach of children. Not for use in breeding bulls, or in calves less than 3 months of age. Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing. Not for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows, or in veal calves.

IT TAKES MORE THAN A LITTLE LUCK TO KEEP CALVES HEALTHY.

It takes the power of Pyramid® 5 + Presponse® SQ, the only approved combination vaccine that protects for at least 217 days against BVDV Type 1b — the most common subtype of BVDV in infected calves. Vaccination provides a protective effect against the development of post-challenge viremia and leukopenia. Choose the viral and bacterial protection of PYRAMID 5 + PRESPONSE SQ, and realize that luck has nothing to do with raising healthy, high-returning calves. Talk with your Boehringer Ingelheim representative today. Learn more at PyramidVaccines.com.
