by Blake Nelson, executive vice president Greetings! I hope that all of you are surviving the summer weather. As we find that new seasons bring changes in weather and as agriculturists these changes force us to adapt our daily practices to achieve our goals for that day. I feel that the current “climate” of the cattle industry is also ever changing, with that being said I think to be successful in today’s industry climate we must look at our customer’s goals as producers and adapt our practices. I think we as seedstock producers have to make sure that we are aware of the needs of our customers and that the mating decisions we make will have an impact for many years to come. To start off, where do our genetics end up? We as MaineAnjou breeders supply genetics to both other purebred breeders but also the majority of our cattle produced end up in the commercial 6

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016

sector. Whether it is bulls and replacement females that we have sold or feeder cattle that ultimately make their way to the food chain, our animals have an impact on the beef business. Any successful business that wants to sustain that level must continue to strive for improvement in producing the best product possible. In our line of business it is supplying genetics to produce “BEEF”. In order to know the outcome from our genetic inputs we must track our cattle all the way to their endpoint of harvesting “BEEF”. This can be tough at times for many of our breeders whether it is lack of herd numbers, feeding knowledge or opportunity. So we have designed a couple of programs to enable the members of the American MaineAnjou Association (AMAA) the opportunity to track their genetics and see the endpoint results from their hard work and investment.

The Maine Max program = Maximize Profits & Maximize Value. I would encourage you to review the fliers on the Maine Max feedout programs as possible marketing options. As producers you put the time and investment into breeding decisions and selecting the best genetics you can. Many times after our selling point we lose track of the animal. Have you ever marketed a set of calves at weaning and wondered how they turned out? Did they grow well? Did they grade well? What quality of beef did they produce? Or have you ever sold a bull and hoped you could see what he had contributed to your customer’s calf crop? The feedout can give you a great chance to harvest the full profit earning potential of your spring calf crop. Many of you have told me that your cattle get docked at your local sale barn for being Maine or Maine crossed cattle, this program is the


perfect option to consider. We have plenty of data that proves Maine genetics are extremely successful when marketed on the rail and this feedout will give you the avenue to reap the true genetic value of your animals. You don’t have to settle for the sale barn discounts when the Maine Max feedout provides the chance for retained ownership and marketing your genetics at their endpoint. There are three cooperating feedlots to choose from for your convenience which are XIT Feeders in Dalhart, Texas, Chappell Feedlot in Chappell, Nebraska and Gregory Feedlot in Tabor, Iowa. The participating feedlots believe in Maine genetics and are proven professionals in the cattle feeding business. Along with receiving the financial breakdown of your cattle after harvest you will have documented gain and efficiency data that can help you make future breeding decisions with your operation. The cattle will not only be statistically compared within the breed group, but also bench marked against thousands of head through the Kansas State Beef Cattle Institute. The Maine Max feedout challenge is open to any cattle that have at least one parent that is registered with the AMAA. The minimum number from one herd is three head and increases from there. This is open to both you and your customers if you would like to participate. Another opportunity to consider is the Maine Max Bull Test and Sale that will begin this fall at Wamego, Kan. This bull gain test will be held at the Kansas Bull Development Center. The AMAA will be working with the staff to collect data on the bulls as they arrive and periodically throughout the test. The data collected will be useful in our genetic evaluation and formulation of EPDs. The

Maine Max program will have a sale at the conclusion of the test in Kansas for all bulls that qualify and pass a breeding soundness exam. This is another great venue to showcase your genetics and have a comparison to some of the leading cattle in the United States. The test is open to nominations from any AMAA or AJMAA member and can be from 1-10 head (Possible increase if pen space is available). The previously mentioned Maine Max programs have been developed to maximize your profit and to maximize efforts for adding value to the Maine-Anjou brand. I hope that you will consider participating in these programs, they will not only benefit your herd but also supply valuable information to enhance the Maine-Anjou breed. To adapt to the changes in the “climate” of the beef industry these are some of the steps that we

must take to progress. Our customer base will grow if we are generating genetics that can add value to their operations. If you have any questions you can contact me or Rick Carlson, AMAA commercial consultant, and we will be glad to work with you. On another note, the National Junior Heifer Show was a great success in Grand Island. I would like to thank Lindsey Broek, the Nebraska Maine Association and all the volunteers for providing a great experience for more than 300 kids and their families. With over 350 head exhibiting, it was an outstanding representation of the Maine-Anjou breed and the incredible people involved with our breed. As always if there is anything that we can assist you with, please let us know! Best Regards, Blake - MAINE-ANJOU - Vision, Vigor, Value!

5 Things To Do RIGHT NOW to Promote Your Fall Sale By Rachel Cutrer, Founder and CEO, Ranch House Designs, Inc. Anticipation is in the air as fall sale season approaches. Many purebred breeders are scoping out show heifer prospects, considering buying new herd bulls, and looking for bred females. Often times, producers focus their “to-do list” on things they need to accomplish before the sale. This might be painting the fence, mowing the pasture, or pregchecking the sale offering. These tasks are easy to recognize, because they relate to physical work and appearance of the farm. However, the business and marketing to-do list is just as important. These “behind the scenes” jobs are vital to the success of the sale. Don’t miss these five tasks on your checklist that every rancher should be doing to prepare for a fall sale. 1. Make a sale promotion timeline . If using a sale manager, they will be able to help you prepare this AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016 50

timeline. If not, it’s a good idea to start thinking about the intense advertising of the sale about 6-8 weeks before the actual sale date. During this time period you’ll be doing the prep work necessary for a successful sale including; placing ads, creating a catalog and photographing and videoing cattle. The mega-intense promotion of your sale begins approximately two weeks before the event. During this time, you’ll be doing phone calls, social media posts and email blasts to help build as much awareness for the sale as possible. 2. Use social media to your advantage. Most top producers use print media to promote their sale 1 to 2 months prior to the event. This is a great way to have a permanent, steady reference to your event amongst your peers. In the two weeks prior to your sale, it’s important to supplement

the print advertising with social media. Social media is often free, or low cost, and keeps you at the forefront of customers’ minds. We recommend setting up a business page for your ranch, so that you can take advantage of advertising features and audience targeting. Post 2 to 3 times per week. Keep posts engaging and avoid over-posting so you don’t appear spammy. Early morning or late evening posts are the best time to reach the farm and ranch demographic. 3. Spend a few dollars on Facebook advertising. If you’ve chosen to set up a business Facebook page, consider investing in paid Facebook advertising. Even a small investment of $5 can help posts get extra traction needed to go viral. Facebook business pages offer tremendous options for


targeting specific audiences: i.e., you can deliver your ad solely to Angus breeders who live within 60 miles of your farm or ranch. We recommend using two forms of boosted posts: Page likes campaigns and individual post boosts. Any amount you choose to invest will help your exposure, but $100 per month is good place to start.

winners. Within those folders, we organize by date, and by the animal. Include the animal’s name in your file names: i.e. Miss-V8-100-7.jpg. This makes it easy to search for specific animals. Also consider adding the date the photo was taken, so that if you have multiple photos of the animal, you’ll know which is the most recent.

4. Organize Your Photos With today’s digital photography tools, a great photo database is easy to build and assemble. However, when you have thousands of digital photos on your computer, sometimes it is hard to find that exact photo you need at a high enough resolution too! On your next rainy day, take some time to organize the photos on your computer. We use a system broken down by folders. We have folders for bulls, cows, calves, show

5. Work on your mailing list. A mailing list is one of the most valuable assets in your marketing program. Today’s mailing lists should ideally include a physical mailing address and an email address. The mailing address is important for mailing sale catalogs, but the email address will be the most frequently used — especially for last minute sale updates. Don’t have a mailing list? It’s never too late to start. Begin by assembling the information of your past and

current buyers. Try to include those who have registered to bid in past sales if you have that information. Ask your breed association if they provide mailing list services. If you have a website, make sure there is a “join our mailing list” page or form so you can capture leads from those who visit your website. In the hustle and bustle of the preparation of fall sales, many producers find themselves wishing for more hours in a day, or more daylight. Focusing on these tasks ahead of schedule will help you stay on top of your marketing game, and be prepared for a great sale this fall!

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016

by Ladd Landgraf The champion slaps have been earned and the dust has settled. The Show for the Gold 2016 MaineAnjou Junior National is in the books! I had a great time meeting all of the new members and getting to catch up with old friends. It was a whirlwind week for everyone I am sure and there are hundreds of people I need to thank for their support, manual labor, ideas and time that they put in to making this Junior National a success, but I know I couldn’t remember all of them if I tried. However, two individuals float to the top in my mind that deserve much more thanks than they get. Without Lindsey Broek and Andee Marston there wouldn’t have been a junior national. I am convinced that Lindsey and Andee are superhuman, especially after putting on such an event. Thank you both for all you do for the associations, I promise it does not go un-noticed. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors that made the week long show a possibility. A sincere Thank You to ALL of our many sponsors and volunteers, without their dedicated and continued support events of this magnitude would not be possible!!! Thank you!


Setting Trends & Staying Focused by Stephanie Sindel

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016 53


Featured attractions in

Northeastern Ohio include the National Football and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and more importantly Garwood Cattle Company, located in Columbiana. What’s common among all of these things? The people that are a part of them are trendsetters…taking risks and putting in the work to follow their efforts and create a high-quality model for others to follow. In 2008 Justin Garwood and his father, Bob decided that they would like to re-introduce cattle into the farming operation. That is when they purchased the “Cookie” cow - the matriarch of their current herd. She’s been a great asset and is still producing progeny from the donor pen. Garwood Cattle Company is comprised of Justin, his wife Jamie and daughter Bailey along with Justin’s father, Bob. As the cattle numbers grow, Justin has hired numerous full-time employees and a few part-time seasonal helpers to keep things up and running. Someone to specialize in breeding and calving, someone to take care of the show and sale cattle, a maintenance man, another person to keep everything straight in the office, and of course Justin oversees all of the cattle operation. While growing up, Justin showed cattle in 4-H on a local level. He always enjoyed the cattle; however, when he wrapped up his junior career he became focused on the AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016 54

trucking portion of the family business. As the demand for ground deliveries grew, the Garwood family seized the opportunity to expand into this arena. The Garwood family currently has a contract with FedEx on the East Coast running 60 semi-trucks. Most of their fleet is based out of Hartford, Connecticut with some back in North Jackson, just North of Columbiana. Just like all other businesses, the freight industry requires the right tools. Trucks, drivers, maintenance, schedulers for shipments and operators, and the overall record keeping to keep things running smoothly. Since the Garwoods’ got back into the cattle business nearly ten years ago they have experienced tremendous success. Promoting bulls, acquiring some of the most sought after donors in the county, marketing many high-sellers that have went on to do great things and keeping their tanks full of frozen genetics to ship across the county have all added to that success. Marketing their cattle and genetics have taken place predominately online. They also offer open houses for viewers and potential buyers to come to the farm and take a look. At the end of the day, Justin has one goal in mind and that is to make it a rewarding experience for the families that they’re associated with. Getting back into the business was exciting and overwhelming

all at the same time. As you know, things can change pretty rapidly in an industry, so after ten plus years there is a bit of research to be done to ensure that you’re staying ahead of the curve. Oftentimes this means breeding on a concept of an idea of where you would like to take your herd. Staying consistent with that choice is sometimes challenging because it’s easy to want to chase trends. In doing so, you’re ultimately falling a little behind with each breeding season. Justin says, “Not everything is what it seems. Do your research for yourself and stay consistent. It will provide more dividends and success for the long-term.” Running 250 cows in various locations seems feasible, but when land is at a premium like it is in Northeastern, Ohio, some days it requires a lot of running around. Garwoods have cows in five locations that range as far as two-and-a-half hours apart. When it comes time to work cows, it takes a crew of three or four, a transportable tub and chute system, and a full day to get to and from the cows’ location. The same holds true with partnerships in Justin’s opinion. The concept of cost-sharing purchases or inputs is always appealing; however, in doing so, it’s constant bookkeeping and making sure that everything is squared away at the end of the day. From flushing to mating to selling offspring and embryos, it’s


a constant working relationship. Finding the right partners can be the difference between a great experience and selling out. When starting out, the cows were a hobby and enjoyable part to the end of a long day. After several years of purchasing the best genetics and cattle that they could find, it’s time to downsize. Justin is looking to regain focus on his best cattle and make even better cattle with less numbers. Inevitably, this is something that happens in nearly all businesses. “We would rather give another person the opportunity to have something of their own to start with than keep them around here with less focus,” said Justin. “We have accumulated so many great genetics and we hope to provide others with some of the same opportunities that we have been graced with.” In addition to the trucking company and the cattle the Garwood family also has numerous other irons in the fire. They’re currently finishing construction on a new calving barn and have been consistently expanding their current location to feasibly maintain their own equipment for both businesses. The ability to provide in-house repairs and fixes is something that will keep things up and running efficiently. The Garwood logo is prevalent when it comes to sponsorship and donations. When asked why, Justin simply stated, “for the kids.” He elaborates that when

state and breed associations offer scholarships and events, it gets kids out of the house and into something that they can turn into a future…even though they might not realize it at the time. Some of the best times at the Garwood house are when the entire family is outside in the barn working together. “It instills values and the responsibility that it provides is priceless,” Justin states. Garwood Cattle Company’s focus is on the families and they enjoy the chance to provide similar opportunities to each of their customers by selling cattle. The hard-work and time spent together isn’t easily achieved, but “when you get in the truck exhausted after a long weekend – banners or not, you’re in there together and it was about the experience.” In Justin’s spare time, he competes throughout the state with his pulling truck, “Goat on a Rope.” Like his other endeavors his competitive edge rises to the top, making him well-known in these circles. Similar to other hobbies, it takes quite a bit of time and effort to become successful with a pulling truck, not to mention the crew that it takes to stay on the track throughout the season. Most recently, the Garwoods have added a custom fabrication shop to the farm. This will be used on all fronts, whether it be new trailer graphics or something that needs adjusted on a truck to handle shipments. The ability to

multifunction through different facets of the farm have made it a great environment for fulltime employees while providing efficiencies for both businesses. The reason that each person gets into the cattle business is ultimately slightly different, but at the end of the day, if people don’t enjoy it, they won’t do it. With semen tanks loaded with embryos and an ever-growing cow herd, the Garwoods have set their sights on refocusing the goals of their herd. Driving home the quality versus quantity will hold true as they start working to get their herd back to a size that keeps the cows closer to home. Ideally, running 75-100 head and flushing the elite top-end is where they’re headed. Essentially, they’ll be doing more with less and they will still be hosting sales and selling semen and embryos. Justin has a tremendous savviness when it comes to business and marketing. Driving it home, he simply stated, “you have to separate yourself.” This generally requires thinking outside of the box and throwing up a few things that don’t stick, but when that one crazy idea does hold-up you’ll have a lot of people trying to imitate what you’re doing. The key is to stay on the leading edge of what’s trending. **Reprinted with permission from the Ohio Cattlemen’s Magazine.** AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016 55

RUSH ORDERS

If you are selling an animal, we ask that you register and transfer the animal in a timely manner to avoid extra charges and to assure buyers they are purchasing from a reputable business person. Rushes will be done in the order received; a rush fee is currently $50 (covers eight head). If rush work is faxed, it will be considered a rush unless otherwise specified. It is the breeder’s responsibility to give us a follow-up phone call to make sure the work is legible and to cover all fees. It is not our office staff ’s responsibility to call breeders that fax in registration work. No work will be released until payment is complete. Rush work is processed ahead of the regular work that is received in our office and mailed by regular mail within one to two business days. We will do our best to complete rush work that is received in our office by 2 p.m. (Monday – Friday). There is no same-day turnaround. If requiring a registration number only, it will still be considered a rush as we still have to process the work to obtain the number. If you need to have registrations sent out by overnight delivery, there is an additional fee (in addition to the rush fee) for sending overnight. We normally use Federal Express (Fed Ex) and the charges are based on Fed Ex fees at that given time. Again, let us emphasize, it is your responsibility to contact our office to make arrangements for overnight delivery so that we have the correct shipping address and payment before sending. Fed Ex WILL NOT deliver to a post office box. A rush will be picked up by Fed Ex the next business day for

delivery the following day. For big weekend events, such as state expos, we reserve the right to require work to be in our office no later than 2 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to that weekend’s show. Please plan ahead. If a paper is needed within two weeks, a rush will be required at this time of year.

absence of the donor’s records. The DNA, TH and PHA testing can be done at GeneSeek. A submission form is found on our Web site, maine-anjou.org. Maine-Anjou samples are put into testing at GeneSeek on Wednesdays, please plan accordingly when submitting. DNA results will be back in the AMAA office late the next week after the testing begins; TH and PHA results will be in our office two weeks later, usually on a Thursday. We would like to start sending the test results by e-mail only, please make sure we have an upto-date e-mail address for you, if applicable.

Tattoo year letter for 2017: e QUESTIONS ON REGISTERING

new self billing worksheet

REGISTRATION NUMBERS

new members

Please read through the information found on our homepage at maine-anjou.org under “Member Information.”

Once an animal is registered, it is backed up that same night to our Web site, maine-anjou.org. It can be viewed by clicking on “Search the Maine-Anjou Breed” or by logging into your account.

dna, th and pha requirements

Prior to registering any ET calves, all donor dams (including commercial or non-registered dams) must have DNA, TH and PHA on file in our office. Also, all AI sires are required to have the same on file. Therefore, our office will hold any ET registrations submitted out of dams without testing on file as well as all registrations out of AI sires that do not have complete testing on file. If the donor dam is deceased and not tested, we do require that the ET(s) have the tests done, in the

Please dispose of any old selfbilling worksheets and registration forms you may have to avoid work being held for price differences. All new members must choose a program when submitting a new membership. The two programs that are offered are MAPP and Breeders Choice. You may read about these two programs by visiting maine-anjou.org and clicking on “Member Information” and then choose the “MAPP or Breeders Choice” option. If a membership is submitted without choosing a program, the new member will be placed in the Breeders Choice program.

Foundation animals

Non-registered bulls and females must be entered as a foundation animal prior to MaineTainer progeny being registered. All current “P” (performance only) cattle will be grand-fathered into the program. If the sire is an AI sire and registered at another

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016 59


announcements

breed association, the pedigree and testing must be on file with the AMAA. The charge to add a sire pedigree will be a one-time charge of $40. If the AMAA finds that the pedigree has already been paid for by another breeder, the $40 charge will not be applied. Dams registered at another breed association may also be added for a one-time charge of $25. See the new self-billing sheet for foundation fees.

bull calf registration

If registering a bull calf born after Jan. 1, 2014, it must be TH/PHA free by parentage or have testing completed prior to registering and on file with the AMAA. Carriers will no longer be registered, but may be entered as a foundation animal. If registrations are submitted before testing has been completed, the animal will not be registered. Instead, the animal will be given a performance number at a nonrefundable penalty charge of $10. Once the animal has been tested the registration may be completed at the regular rate. Please plan accordingly as testing can take up to three weeks.

ONLINE transfers

Registered animals with certificates are now able to be transferred online but must be completed by the current owner by logging into his/her online account to complete the transfer. If the buyer is responsible for the transfer fees, the seller must indicate this in the comment line, otherwise the seller will be charged the transfer fees. Remember, anytime you transfer an animal your dues must be paid unless the animal being transferred is the last animal in your inventory. You will be able to see your current inventory when

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016

logging in to your account online.

online registration discounts

A 10 percent discount on registration fees will be given to all active members registering online (discount does not apply to annual dues, new memberships, MAPP fees or foundation animals). If you have not created an online account, you may do so by visiting maine-anjou.org, select the green tab that says “Login”, select “Create Account”, enter your current breeder number, enter your e-mail address, verify your e-mail address and enter a password of your choice. You will then be automatically logged in to your account. You may view your current inventory, cancelled animals you no longer have, register and transfer animals and enroll your MAPP online if you are a current MAPP member.

Purchase registration blocks

You may purchase registration blocks of 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100 at a discounted rate. These blocks are prepaid registrations and may only be used for animals under 13 months of age. Any unused blocks expire December 31 of each year. See the new self-billing worksheet for pricing. Multiple discounts will not be allowed. If you register online, the block discount (the greater discount) will be applied at checkout.

2016 MAPP

MAPP inventories are now due. Directions are posted on our website on how to enroll your current inventory. If you would prefer to have your inventory mailed, please contact Donna Grame at (816) 431-9950. MAPP members must have their 2016 fees paid to register for the 2016 year.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The American Maine-Anjou Association (AMAA) Board of Director’s met in Grand Island, Neb., June 22, 2016. The following are highlights from the meeting. MEETING CALLED TO ORDER Board members present: Marty Van Vliet, Cody Tebbenkamp, Brett Carter, Cory Thomsen, Leon Matlock, Alicia Rigdon, Cliff Randall, Jim Hett, Jim Opperman, John Griswold, Eric Walker and Troy Jones. Board members absent: Dennis Moore, Hardy O’Hara, Barry Nowaztke. Others Present: Blake Nelson, Rick Carlson, Rick Humphrey, Myron Alexander and Jirl Buck. The first item of business was approval of minutes as printed in past issue of the Maine-Anjou Voice. A motion was made and seconded to approve the minutes as printed. Motion carried. Executive Vice President Blake Nelson started with an informational report on registrations, memberships and junior memberships. ASSOCIATION REPORTS BUILDING AND GROUNDS Nelson explained that the air conditioner at the office may need repair or replacing this summer. A motion made and seconded that if the A/C failed, to give the executive vice president the power to replace the A/C. Motion carried. NEW MAINE-ANGUS PROGRAM Discussion was held regarding the new Maine-Angus program being separate from the MaineTainer program. Nelson stated that this would be something that could be distinguished by the registration 62

AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2016

paper and also on the Digital Beef registration program. A motion made and seconded to go forward with the Maine-Angus program. Motion carried. Discussion was held regarding what percent these cattle should be to be eligible to be entered into the program. Animals qualifying for the Maine-Angus program will have from 3/8 (37.5%) up to 5/8 (62.5%) Maine-Anjou blood with the balance being derived from registered Angus and/or Red Angus. The only breed’s genetics that are permitted in this program are registered Maine-Anjou, Angus and Red Angus. No commercial, additional breeds or non-registered parents will be accepted in this program. A motion was made and seconded to accept these breed guidelines. Motion carried with one voting no. Identification of genetic defects was discussed. A motion was made and seconded to allow all animals into the program by registration standards originally, but offspring would need to be tested and identified as potential carriers and that all bulls would follow current Maine-Anjou registration rules. Motion failed. Additional discussion on this matter resulted in a motion being made and seconded that all cattle enter into the program as originally allowed but with females following the Maine-Anjou female registration policy and bulls following the Maine-Anjou bull registration policy. Motion carried. There was more discussion about the Angus defects and how they should be approached in this

program. A motion was made to table the Maine-Angus program until Louisville. Blake Nelson and Rick Carlson will check with the American Angus Association on their registration requirements in the purebred sector and their defects and what their preference would be since many of the MaineAngus bulls could be going to Angus operations. Motion carried. A motion was made and seconded to charge a $5 change over fee to current cattle already in the system. Motion carried. GENETIC SEQUENCING Rick Carlson gave a presentation on the genetic sequencing project with the University of Missouri along with a commercial update to the board. FOUNDATION There were no motions brought before the board. Cliff Randall stated that the committee would need to work on some goals for fundraising packages. SALE There were no motions brought before the board. There was discussion on improving the Denver sale, the past Denver sale averages were bulls at $4,200, heifers at $4,405 and embryos at $1,030. Discussion was held regarding a frozen genetic sale on the hill or a bull futurity in the future. MAGAZINE Discussion was held regarding the mailing of subscriptions for alumni members. No motions were made.


YOUTH The youth committee gave an update that there was no one running in Region 1 for the junior board and that they were working on finding interested parties on site to run for the open position. A motion was made and seconded to increase the eligibility of junior members to 22 years of age. Motion carried. LONG RANGE No motions were brought before the board in the long range and promotion/marketing committees. BREED IMPROVEMENT The breed improvement item of the Maine-Angus program had already been discussed and was tabled until the Louisville meeting later in the year. There was extensive discussion on the upcoming 2020 date for females to follow the same registration protocol as bulls. A motion was made and seconded to delete the 2020 date and list animals as suspect on the registration paper. Motion failed. After additional discussion a motion was made and seconded to delete the 2020 deadline that would start females following the same registration protocol as bulls and leave it as is for females. Motion carried, 7-4. There was also discussion on the floating 1/8 in the grading up chart of breed percentages but no motions were made on the topic. Discussion was held on mandatory 50K testing for all AI

sires and donor dams. No motions were made and was tabled until November.

CHAMPIONS STAND ALONE!

We have had great success feeding StandAlone Feed to not only the sale cattle but also our bulls. In fact our fertility and semen quality has increased on the bulls that were on the product compared to years past where we hadn’t fed any. We highly recommend StandAlone Feed to all of our families who purchase show cattle from us to increase feed conversion and achieve more bloom as well as keeping them on target for their end point shows. StandAlone Feed is absolutely the best product we have used overall to help us be competitive!
