VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Rebuilding ain’t easy, but it’s what we do.

all in all, we do our best

I

f we ever doubted her power, Mother Nature reminded us this week. Almost a year to the day, a wildfire, triple the size of the Anderson Fires last year, raged through some of America’s most valuable grassland. Now forever known as the Starbuck Fires, began as multiple fires in the Oklahoma Panhandle, morphed into a gigantic wildfire and headed in a northeasterly direction fueled by 60-70 mile per hour winds. Within 24 hours the fires burned more than 1.2 million acres in four states. The toll on humans, livestock and property is difficult to fathom and comprehensive assessment of the damage will take months. The economic impact to rural communities, personal lives and even the respective states will be tremendous. It’s sad irony that just

Rebuilding a business such as a cow-calf operation, after generations of financial investments, breed improvement and weathering market cycles, is literally starting all over again. It is rebuilding the factory. However, rebuilding from the ground up in industries outside of agriculture is measurable. You rebuild, restart manufacturing and begin to move product out the door. Rebuilding a beef cow herd (factory) takes years. Few cow herds are insured nor pastures, fences, water supplies, hay—the list goes on—covered by insurance. Beef producers first must find the capital to reinvest and the internal fortitude to risk it all again. Then, a producer must wait on new growth in the pastures. Next, a producer begins the process of repopulating

Rebuilding a beef cow herd (factory) takes years. Few cow herds are insured nor pastures, fences, water supplies, hay—the list goes on—covered by insurance. one year ago, counties adjoining Clark and Comanche Counties in Kansas were consumed by the Anderson Wildfire, burning more than 390,000 acres. This week the focus, and rightfully so, has been on the wildfires. Nationwide relief efforts started before the fires could be controlled. Command centers were established and disaster managers and volunteers found their groove. Local veterinarians with volunteer support from their peers, began triage to treat the unfathomable number of livestock. Crisis management teams started to assess property loss. Before the disastrous fire was contained, recovery had begun. This week Mother Nature lashed out with fire but other parts of the country experience equally as costly and deadly disasters— blizzards, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes—all bring us to our knees. Each disaster, regardless of geographic location, cause us to wonder if we have the strength and fortitude to pick up the pieces and rebuild our respective production agriculture infrastructures to move on. These natural disasters do not discriminate. Fires, blizzards, floods and tornadoes are color blind. There’s no distinction between good or bad property, people or livestock. Anything in the path is taken. If a cow was fortunate enough to be waiting out the winter on wheat pasture, her chance for survival was good if she was in the path of the fire. If she was turned out on dry grass pasture, she likely perished.

the cow herd. Assuming the decision is to purchase bred cows, a cowman then wait 283 days and hope for a live calf. After calving, a cattleman continues to incur costs to grow a cow-calf unit to weaning—another 205 days minimum. The point is, rebuilding a beef cattle operation is unlike any other industry. It’s fraught with risk, the costs are extraordinary and emotional and financial toll on humans, at times, seems too much to bare. But, we do. And we will do it again. During these events, we recognize the unbreakable bond we have in the beef industry. Wherever the disaster occurs, people rush to help. Unsolicited and unwavering, our people want to help. One of the most important take home messages from catastrophic events is the size of our hearts and scope of generosity among the beef community and the willingness to give. For those experiencing too much rain, we hope it stops. For those experiencing drought, we hope it starts raining. For those needing pastures to recover from the devastating fires, we hope the rains come soon. Meanwhile, our industry will continue to do what we do best by donating to relief efforts, organizing the delivery of hay and rebuilding supplies, showing up to build fence, clean up, feed people, treat the injured animals—all in all, we do our best to shore up our friends, neighbors and peers and stand beside them as they begin the long rebuilding process. It’s what we do.

Link Your Herd Management Package to AICA

AICA has launched a new service that provides the framework to allow on-farm herd management computer software to exchange data with the AICA office. By using this service, breeders can avoid entering data in to both their local software and AICA’s online system. The software package would send AICA the data. If you wish to take advantage of this new service, ask your software vendor to contact AICA.

NEWS NOTES

AICA MEMBERSHIP Vollborn Family Earns Cattlemen’s Commercial Producer of the Year Award

The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) awarded the Vollborn Family of Bidwell, Ohio, the Commercial Producer of the Year Award at the OCA awards banquet held Jan. 21, 2017, at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio. OCA and Farm and Dairy jointly sponsor this award to recognize Ohio’s top commercial beef operations. The award presentation featured a video of the Vollborn family that was generously sponsored by the Gallia County Cattlemen’s Association. The Vollborn’s manage a multi-generational farm, which started out as a small family operation and has now evolved into multiple operations. Vollborn Farms, established in the 1850’s, is owned and operated by Fred, Ed, and Ray Vollborn. The second operation is Vollborn Cattle Company that involves Fred’s son – Luke Vollborn, his mother Linda, and sister Lisa Jo Blakeman. Vollborn Farms is primarily a commercial operation dealing mainly with feeder calves and replacement females. Vollborn Cattle Company focuses more on purebred registered Charolais and Angus cattle. Luke Vollborn’s goal is to try and raise great mother cows that excel in show rings as well as the pasture, and to continue to grow the business for many generations to come. 20  

From the RING to the WEB: Charolais breeders find niche with nationally-supported program By Amy Blum

O

nline platforms today sell everything from toilet paper to homes. Consumers expect online access to either research or buy what they want and need. In fact, online buying and selling are mainstream concepts understood by even the youngest consumers. But, do online sales serve a viable purpose in today’s livestock industry? According to Charolais veteran Harlin Hecht of Paynesville, Minnesota, Charolais newcomer Mark Johnson of Orlando, Oklahoma, and AICA field staffer Colt Keffer of Fort Collins, Colorado, the answer is a resounding YES!

Junior board will design bracket for both divisions 4. Physically or verbally threatening or abusing the referee in any division is cause for immediate disqualification. 5. Teams must be at their court at the scheduled time. A three-minute forfeit time will be strictly enforced. 6. Each team must start and finish the game with at least two players. 7. A coin flip at the start of the game will determine first possession. 8. All games are played to 15 points (win by 1) or 15 minutes (running clock), whichever comes first. The referee reserves the right to change the number of points and/or time limit due to external events. 9. If the game is tied after 15 minutes have elapsed, the game will be completed with a sudden death playoff. A coin flip will determine possession. 10. Player substitutions will be permitted on any dead ball situations 11. Successful shots taken from inside the three point line will be worth 1 point, while baskets made from outside the line are worth 2 points. Both feet must be clearly behind the line (when the shot is taken) for the shot to count as two points. 12. After a made basket or a dead-ball situation, the ball must be checked by a defense player to an offensive player where the offensive player has both feet behind the take-back line. The offensive player must pass the ball to start the action. The defensive player guarding the person checking in the ball must be outside the three point line. 13. On any change of possession, the offense must bring the ball past the three point line before a shot can be attempted. Both feet must be completely behind the line. If a team forgets to take it back and makes a basket, the basket will not count and the opposing team takes possession of the ball. If the shot misses, then the ball is live and both teams still need to take it back. 14. Change of possession means any defensive rebound (including an air-ball), a steal, a made basket or a made (or missed) free throw. This is not make-it, take-it. 15. If the referee rules that a foul was flagrant or meant to cause harm, the player fouled will shoot one free throw and that team will keep possession of the ball. The player called with a flagrant foul will get one warning. Any further flagrant fouls will result in immediate ejection from the game. 16. An unwritten 30- second shot clock is in effect at all times and may be enforced by the referee at his/ her discretion. Once the referee has announced that the shot clock is in effect, each team has 3 seconds to get a shot off. The shot must make contact with the rim of the basket in order for the shot clock to be restarted. A defensive foul also re-sets the shot clock. 17. There is an imaginary 3-second lane near/under the basket. There is no camping in this lane. “Camping” violations are at the discretion of the referee. The court monitor will give a warning. Subsequent infractions will result in a loss of possession. 18. If a ball goes out of bounds and players and the referee cannot decide who get possession of the ball, a coin flip will decide the possession. 19. The top of the backboard is out-of-bounds. The sides and bottom are in-bounds 20. The referee has the right to make a ruling on any issues that are not covered within these rules. 30  

Directors By Area

H

ello everyone! My name is Hadley Schotte and I am currently serving as your Area 3 Director and Vice President. I am a freshman at Hutchinson Community College where I compete on the livestock judging team. I was raised on a cow-calf/row-crop operation just north of Marysville, KS. My family has an Angus based commercial cowherd, and we have run Charolais bulls on them once we realized the benefits of the hybrid vigor. But the greatest part of the Charolais breed has to be the opportunities found within it. Not only is it a great avenue to meet some of the most well respected people in the industry but the activities are second to none to produce good herdsmen. One of the most important things in my mind for the next generation of cattlemen is to be knowledgeable about all aspects of the industry. Many years ago virtually everyone was either directly involved or only about a generation removed from production agriculture. This is nowhere near the case anymore. Depending on where you wish to find your facts, anywhere from one to one and a half percent of the U.S. population is all that is currently involved in production agriculture. This number isn’t on the rise either. With

difficult to explain to someone why you can’t do something because you have to go check those calving heifers or stay up all night with a calf in the hot box to make sure its ears don’t freeze. But these real life stories are what the consumers need to hear about. Those organizations working against us use the television commercials featuring the neglected dogs and the sad music. This kind of picture paints everyone involved in animal agriculture as a horrible person as that story can truly touch the heart. But when those same viewers hear your personal stories or a story of a young couple dying in a wild fire trying to save cattle, heart strings will immediately be pulled in the right direction. Now don’t get me wrong, there are small animals that are not cared for properly in this world, but that is not how we run our livestock. Personal stories will make this distinction for consumers. Being knowledgeable becomes extremely important when you begin to share your personal stories of how things are run on your operation. Yes, the stories will make the connection with the consumer but having the facts to back up your viewpoint is what truly earns their trust. You never know

“Being an approachable person that someone can trust will take you leaps and bounds in life.” a population of people that consumes our products each day that doesn’t have that tie to agriculture, we need to be proactive in the way we educate others on our daily routines of caring for livestock. Building trust with the consumer that we once had years ago should be our primary goal. No matter what you do in life or what industry you choose to be involved with, trusting customers will always come back unless you give them a reason not to. Organizations such as HSUS, PETA, etc. are constantly working against our cause and have virtually unlimited funds. They lead people to believe that farmers and ranchers are terrible people and are only out to make as much money as possible regardless of how livestock are treated. Everyone in our industry knows that this is simply not the case. If all someone wants is to make money, then I can’t see how they would be willing to take the gambles a cattleman does year in and year out. As cattlemen we do what we do for the livelihood we love. I understand that at times it can be

A P R I L 2017

what kind of follow-up questions someone may wish to ask you. Be willing to offer your knowledge but always ensure that honesty is a top priority. Honesty is an often overlooked virtue in today’s world. Instead of lying to someone to please them, offer to look up the answer to the question from a reputable source and get back to them. This is much more professional than saying whatever comes to mind and steering them in the wrong direction. Included in this issue of the Charolais Journal you will find all of the entry and contest information for the Junior National. This has been the highlight of my summer since my first Junior National in 2006. Many opportunities are available throughout the week that will help build networking skills. Being an approachable person that someone can trust will take you leaps and bounds in life. Not only in educating others about production agriculture but also in every other aspect of life.

Biotin

, is a tremendous vitamin for HAIR GROWTH.The major benefit of Biotin is its ability to strengthen both the hair follicle and hair shaft, along with increased elasticity of the cortex to prevent hair breakage and dryness. This enables healthy, FASTER HAIR GROWTH.

Pro-Vitamin B-5

, is the king of all HAIR CARE vitamins. It stimulates healthy scalp circulation which leads to improved hair health. As an added benefit, it also possesses superior long term moisturizing properties because of its unique ability to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft; then sealing the surface to protect and make the hair shine.

Vitamin E

, is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation throughout the skin and supports capillary growth. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves leading to increased nutrient absorption into the hair follicles, which speeds hair growth.

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 extended-release 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. Manufactured for Merial, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA.

THE WEIGHT GAIN IS REAL. Go ahead, blink.

A deworming with LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) can help keep parasites from eating into your profits. If you used a conventional dewormer like CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) or in combination, your cattle are probably already reinfected with parasites. That’s because conventional dewormers only last 14 to 42 days and SAFE-GUARD has no persistent effect. Only LONGRANGE delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single treatment.1,2 When you look at the benefits of season-long parasite control with LONGRANGE – you’ll see you have a lot to gain.

Use LONGRANGE on your cow/calf operation and see the difference for yourself.

Perseverance leads to finding niche online

For Harlin Hecht and his family, 2017 marks 50 years in the Charolais business. Hecht admits the years haven’t always been easy, especially when he and wife Sue were first building their operation; however, the long list of state and national honors earned by the couple and their children is testament to their focus on quality and their persistence to evolve. “We bought four Charolais females to start our operation. Unfortunately, one of them died before we even got a calf,” Hecht said. “Losing a quarter of our herd off the bat wasn’t the route we’d planned, but we kept working. We grew to have success with our animals in show and sale rings across the country. The turning point for us, though, was about 15 years ago. We were able to make significant investments in top females of the time and put our concentration fully on our embryo transfer (ET) program.” Operating as Double H Charolais, the Hechts run about 40 Charolais cows with 12 of those being donor cows. They also maintain two cooperator herds in Minnesota and Iowa. As a result, they market 150-200 embryos throughout the US and Canada each year. “We believe in the staying power of live auctions,” Hecht said. “But, marketing our embryo packages through online sales has been a tremendous benefit to our overall program. The reach we have to current and potential buyers online is something we can’t replicate with traditional methods.” Hecht also sees the advantages online sales can offer beginning cattlemen as buyers. “When we got started 50 years ago, we bought good, but not great, cows and spent the next many years breeding them up,” said the grandfather of nine. “To start over, we would buy some recip cows and the best embryos we could find. It saves years to start at the top genetically rather than in the middle. Today’s online sales make those top genetics more accessible than ever before.”

Double H Charolais of Paynesville, Minnesota successfully market embryo packages from donor cows like “Nancy” in online sales through Char Auctions, an internet marketing service powered by DVAuction and backed by the American International Charolais Association. March 2017 marked the Hecht family’s fourth embryo sale through www.charauctions.com. 46  

A P R I L 2017

Mark and Brenda Johnson, along with daughters Sydney and Charley, operate J & J Cattle Company near Orlando, Oklahoma. The family recently entered the Charolais business and has chosen Char Auctions as the online sale platform to complement their current operation. Mark said, “Especially as new people to the Charolais breed, it’s nice to know we have the national breed association backing our marketing efforts with their publicity and promotion power. That’s worth a lot!”

Online marketplace opens doors

Though new to the Charolais breed, Mark Johnson and his wife Brenda have spent the past 25 years building a purebred operation that attracts visitors to their physical location in the heart of Oklahoma cattle country. As such, J & J Cattle Company hosts major cattle sales, educational field days, and livestock judging workshops on their ranch each year for local, state, national, and international guests. “The primary purpose of our operation is to sell purebred seedstock animals to youth exhibitors as halter prospects, to other seedstock producers as herd influencers, and to commercial cattlemen as range bulls,” Johnson said. “We’re new to the Charolais breed, but we see a lot of opportunity with such a well-respected breed of cattle.” While on-site interactions have been a primary focus for the Johnsons and their teenage daughters Sydney and Charley, they have also embraced online sales with great success. “Especially as we break into a new breed and concentrate on selling younger animals, we’ve found online auctions an important and useful tool for success,” said Johnson, who is also a professor of animal science at Oklahoma State. Johnson believes personal interaction between sellers and buyers in the cattle industry is more important now than ever before. “Ten years ago or so, selling online seemed like a novelty in the industry. Now, it’s the norm and a significant tool when it comes to marketing on a greater scale,” he said. “At the same time, the cattle business remains personal in nature. Our businesses all revolve around cattle, but the most successful operations are built on human relationships. We make every effort to prioritize interacting with people whether it’s a face-toface conversation, a phone call, a text, or a connection through social media.”

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


A shared choice for online marketing

Though the Hecht and Johnson family operations differ significantly, they share an interesting connection when it comes to how they market their genetics online. Both producers have utilized other online livestock marketing services. Yet, when researching options to fit their different needs, both operations decided on the only online platform backed by the American International Charolais Association and powered by DVAuction, an internet-based livestock marketing service founded in 1999. Their choice? Char Auctions. “As new Charolais breeders, we really appreciate Char Auctions’ unique ability to target buyers and breeders,” Johnson said. “It’s also a great feeling to know the national breed association is backing you with their publicity and promotion powers. I have nothing bad to say about the other platforms we’ve used; we had great results. But, to have the marketing power of an entire association is particularly beneficial in today’s market.” Hecht echoes Johnson’s appreciation for Char Auctions. His family held the inaugural sale on charauctions.com in March 2016. One year later, Double H Charolais has utilized the platform for a total of four sales and seen market opportunities grow as they now offer bred recip cows. “I really can’t say enough good things about the Char Auctions team,” Hecht said. “The customer service is outstanding, and because everyone helping knows and understands the Charolais breed, we have great cooperation to ensure accuracy and quality. Their commission rates are comparable to others, but what we get back from the investment is greater. I am very happy to continue utilizing the service.”

Building a brand with online presence

Colt Keffer—the north central field rep for the AICA and leader of Char Auctions—shares the breeders’ excitement for a Charolais-specific sales platform. “Our goal isn’t to have all the sales,” Keffer said. “There are a lot of great services out there. We’re simply working to be the go-to place for people who want to have their finger on the Charolais breed’s pulse.” He continued, “The fact is Charolais and Charolaisinfluenced herds are growing. We’ve got excitement around our genetics that people haven’t seen. Char Auctions is designed to be a place as beneficial for the grassroots Charolais guys as it is for the glitz and glam of the showring. Early indicators show it’s working!” The greatest advantage Char Auctions provides sellers is flexibility from Keffer’s perspective. He believes that advantage also benefits buyers significantly. “Live auctions aren’t going away, nor should they,” Keffer said. “But, live auctions can be cost-prohibitive and limiting for beginning breeders. Online sales offer so much flexibility, which is a tremendous asset when showcasing the maturity curve of Charolais cattle. Smaller scale operators get an affordable marketing option, and buyers get real-time, accurate pictures, videos, and production data. It’s a win-win.”

Tips

for Online Sale Success Advice for sellers and buyers compiled from Hecht, Johnson, and Keffer to ensure a successful sale.

For Sellers:

1. Become familiar with online marketing services to determine the best fit for your needs. “Online sales are not one-size fits all,” Keffer said. “Does the service you’re considering allow you to choose whether you sell race horse-style versus with online bidding and a live close? Do they offer advertising help, customer support? It’s important to research.” 2. Keep sale size in mind. “We’ve found 15 lots to be ideal for an online sale,” Hecht said. “Every breeder has his own right number, but our experience says smaller is better. Multiple small sales versus one large sale can be beneficial in many ways.” 3. Don’t overlook the importance of advertising. “The convenience and flexibility of online sales makes them so appealing for both buyers and sellers, but we treat advertising the same regardless of sale method,” Johnson said. “Potential buyers need to see your offering in multiple formats over time to actually notice and retain what you’re offering.”

For Buyers:

1. Do your homework, and be an informed consumer. “Buying online really isn’t any different than buying in person,” Keffer said. “At the end of the day, you need to understand the sale format and know the cattle. Are you approved to bid? Do you know the sale’s opening and closing times? Do you have second and third choices in the sale? Being an engaged buyer makes all the difference.”
