AMAA Headquarters by Blake Nelson, Executive Vice President

Greetings! The National Junior Heiefer Show (NJHS) was a tremendous event due to the hard work of the Nebraska Show Committee, AJMAA junior board, Lindsey Broek and her team. The Grand Fiesta provided a great experience for many junior members and their families that attended. 421 junior members, representing 25 states, exhibited over 430 head of Maine-Anjou cattle in Grand Island, Neb. The junior national is a major highlight for the AMAA each year. It supplies an educational opportunity for our future leaders and showcases some of the best cattle that Maine-Anjou has to offer. After leaving this event I feel both motivated and very blessed by the members that have and are investing in our breed, thank you! Our junior members are some of the best kids around and it is great to witness first hand their hard work. Whether it is the shows or the contests, it is very evident the time and effort these young cattle people put into these categories. One of my personal favorites is the bred and owned division because you get to see the commitment and work each junior has put into their bred and owned project. From the breeding decision AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

6

made at the time of conception, through the birth and weaning phase, and finally the time when they exhibit that calf. This is just one of the great divisions offered at the NJHS. If you know junior aged kids that would like to be involved or adults that would like to volunteer, please let us know. It takes all of us to hold a successful event of this magnitude. Next year we will be in Des Moines, Iowa on June 23-28, 2019 for the show. Please come and join us! There are also many other opportunities to be involved in AMAA activities. This fall our national show will be held in conjunction with the American Royal in Kansas City, Mo., on October 25-26. We will host the AMAA National Membership Meeting and cattle show. The AMAA Board of Directors will have four retiring directors. There is one director’s seat open in each of the Regions - 1, 2, 3 and At Large. A ballot can be found on page 67 and complete listing of candidates running is located on page 68. Some other activities to start planning for are the Bright Lights Maine-Anjou Sale in Denver and the Maine Max Bull Test in Wamego, Kan. These are both opportunities for our members to market their Maine-Anjou or Maine-influenced cattle in. The Bright Lights Sale has historically featured some of the very best herd sire prospects and females that our breeders have to offer. This sale is held in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show in the Yards. This is an excellent opportunity to market your program at the Super Bowl of livestock shows. The Maine Max Bull Test and Sale is focused on bringing the best performance oriented bulls our breeders have to offer and compare rate of gain and ultrasound data to see how they measure up against

other Maine-Anjou programs in from across the country. This program will continue and is set up for the following reasons. • Data collection for breeders to benchmark their herd’s genetic capability. • Create a marketing opportunity for member’s bulls in the heart of cattle country. • Provide third party data that validates the added value of Maine cattle in the feeding phase and on the rail. • Provide documented traceable data to add into the genetic evaluation and build accuracy in our EPDs. Please contact Josh Cribbs, AMAA Commercial Development Director, with any interests or questions on the Maine Max program. The new EPDs have been formulated by Angus Genetics, Inc., (AGI) and are available on Digital Beef. Please recognize there may be some changes on your animals EPDs, the percentile ranking should be very close to before, even if the numerical change is substantial. Take a look and if you have any questions or concerns please contact us at your convenience. AGI will be incorporating genomics in the fall run of the AMAA genetic evaluation which will be in late NovemberDecember of this year. This change in the use of technology in evaluating the genetic value of an animal can be a great leap forward for the breed. I would like to wrap up by thanking all the sponsors, volunteers, families and our staff that played a part in the MaineAnjou NJHS, great job!! I wish the best of luck to you and your families at your respective county and state fair shows. Best Regards, Blake MAINE-ANJOU Vision, Vigor, Value!

AMAA Commercial Connection by Josh Cribbs, Commercial Development Director

The Issues We Face... This time of year brings about substantial work for cattlemen, their families and those that are employed by them. It is hay season, a time for mending fence and crop farming to supply your operation with feed to help soften the blow of input costs. It involves late nights, playing the moisture game, mornings and afternoons of stockpiling feed and cleaning calving barns. It’s a time that can’t be described to those who don’t live it. Like most of us that are trying to minimize input costs while maximizing cattle outputs, we are constantly making calculations. For me, this drives the question, what are the top three issues lingering over the beef industry for producers today? The first issue that affects beef producers right at the heart, is cow input cost. Over the last decade, the beef industry has focused on increasing performance in feedlot cattle and bulls that will generate the next set of feeders. For those that retain heifers in their herd, this means we have consequently drove up mature cow size to the point that cattle have out reached their environment. In a recent discussion with a producer, the following question AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

8

arose, “At what point will mature cow size reach ideal?” The average cow size across the United States is 1,390 pounds with 100 pounds to either side being the largest or the smallest in the population. In the last 20 years beef production has seen a 20 percent increase in the amount of beef produced per cow per year. Knowing this, some people will say, “Well my cows are much bigger than that.” There is no doubt that some of us, myself included, have a one-ton cow in

the herd. The reality is that those animals are the very far outliers in the beef industry; and regardless of single trait selecting for growth over the past 20 years, we have really have not moved the scale so far that we can’t get it back within reason. The interesting part is that within reason and ideal cow size are both relative to those that have the cattle and what they want them to be. Simply put, beef production and more specifically cow size, is to the person that owns the cattle.

Graph Sourced from Beef Magazine article entitled “Whats your cost to keep a cow.”


The second thing that has regressed within the beef industry over the years is the lack of crossbreeding into the commercial cow herd of the United Sates. Some have made claims that there is enough genetic diversity within a specific breed that one can select bulls year in and year out from the same breed, that is, as long as you pay attention to the genetic profiles you are selecting you could make up for not crossbreeding and the resulting heterois. Unfortunately, there just isn’t much data to support that claim. We know that one breeding season of crossbreeding cattle can have a 15 year effect on heterosis. This could prove the difference in turning a profit or just breaking even. Some have chosen to ignore the facts, but we – the Maine-Anjou breed – can have a significant impact on heterosis when used in a maternal driven, black-hided cow base and will result in a carcass blend that should fit a balanced grid. Breeding cattle in today’s market has been steered by a cultural bias that only aids select breeds in gaining more of the market share. That’s why it is important to stand behind the Maine-Angus program and promote the use of Maine bulls to add in the power and performance of the F1 cross. The third significant issue in the beef industry relates to the selection criteria of bull buyers and their inherent desire to compare breeding values across breeds. The problem with this is you can’t do such a thing without an adjustment factor. And if I’m being honest, it isn’t the breeding value itself that makes a difference, ratther, it’s the percentile ranking in which the value ranks. For instance, a Maine bull in the top one percent for growth is an outlier for the breed and his significance is equal

to a Charolais bull that ranks in the top one percent of his breed for growth. The significance is that both bulls excel in growth and they are among their breed’s elite for that specific trait. Single trait selection of EPDs has led to a focus on building the actual number value, so much so that the reason for having the numbers in the first place – which was to identify the outliers – has lost it focus. Whether you are actively turning in data and genotyping your cattle to stay up with the current industry trends, your cowherd’s EPD profile is genomically enhanced and it’s affecting the value of your own breeding program. The graph below shows the number of progeny needed to get the same amount of assurance that you get from genomic testing. Looking back on the things

and evaluation, that is a turning point to the commercial cattleman who is actively seeking genomically enhanced EPDs. The future of the beef industry will come down to the haves and the have nots. Those who have actively managed their inputs, who have selected a breeding program that will allow them to maximize maternal heterosis and who have sought out non-parent cattle with genomically enhanced EPDs to solidify their investment. In the end, the only thing that truly matters is how good we as beef producers are at making the next generation of females. If you have questions on how to incorporate genomic testing into your herd management program, contact Blake Nelson, Executive Vice President or myself, Commercial Development director (813) 967-6949) at the AMAA.

Graph Sourced from an article published by the American Angus Association entitled “American Angus Association Genomically Enhanced EPDs” previously stated, how are we to continue to thrive in an ever changing market place when we continue to practice single trait selection for growth? This has ultimately driven up mature cow size and has made it harder for the modern beef producer to remain sustainable and manage cow input costs effectively. We have also come to a crossroads in genetic selection AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

Blake Nelson AMAA Executive Vice President (918) 441-3433

Josh Cribbs AMAA Commercial Development (813) 967-6949


Do I have a Maine Angus? 1. Is your animal at least a registered 3/8 MaineTainer? 2. Is your animal out of a registered Angus bull or fem ale? 3. If your animal is a heifer, is she TH/PHA free?

If you answered yes to these three questions, your animal may qualify for the Maine Angus program.

WHAT IS

MAINE ANGUS? The Maine-Angus program is a new initiative created by the American MaineAnjou Association (AMAA) to showcase the complementation of Maine-Anjou genetics when crossed with Angus or Red Angus cattle. This program will reveal Maine-Anjou cattle’s ability to enhance feed efficiency and red meat yield when placed on British based genetics. This program should provide seedstock that will increase production and carcass yield through heterosis. The name Maine Angus is both strong and informative by stating exactly what breeds are present in said animal. The standard is both parents must be registered at the AMAA, American Angus Association (AAA) or Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) will provide validated lineage and genetic information along with valuable

EPDs. Through a partnership with the AAA our EPDs will be updated with the latest genetic evaluation by the AAA which will provide the breeders and customers the best genetic prediction available. This program is focused on producing quality registered offspring that will aid in the incorporation of Maine-Anjou genetics into the mainstream of the USA beef sector. Program Standards • Maine Angus refers to cattle with the following characteristics: • The animal will have between 3/8 Maine-Anjou to 5/8 MaineAnjou blood and have between 3/8 registered Angus to 5/8 registered Angus and/or registered Red Angus blood.

• The standard is both parents must be registered at the AMAA, American Angus Association (AAA) or Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) will provide validated lineage. • Qualifying cattle can have no more than 1/8 of non-registered blood or other breeds. • A registered Maine Angus bull must be proven free of genetic defects PHA and TH. Depending on the Maine-Angus bull’s genetic makeup, the individual must also be proven free of known Angus lethal genetic defects (Ex. AM, NH and CA) and/or known lethal Red Angus genetic defects (Ex. AM, NH, CA and OS) whether determined by pedigree or test. • A registered Maine Angus female must be proven free of PHA and TH, whether identified by pedigree or test.

PROFILE OF A

Cody McCullough Senior Showmanship Winner

Ladd Landgraf

Name: Ladd Landgraf School: Oklahoma State University How many miles did you travel to junior national: 562 Miles Favorite quote: “Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So relax.” – Bryant McGill. Who is your biggest inspiration? Easy, my parents. They work incredibly hard to let me chase my dreams and I am incredibly grateful to them. Seeing how hard they work inspires me to do the same. What is one piece of advice you would give to young Maine-Anjou exhibitors? Never give up because you did not win. I have never worked harder to reach my goals than after a loss.

VICE PRESIDENT: Taylor Dorsey Colorado

SECRETARY/TREASURER: Whitney Walker Arkansas


FAVORITE FOOD? Macaroni and Cheese IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND, WHO WOULD YOU BRING WITH YOU? I would hope that my dad would get stranded with me because he would figure out a way to get us home quickly and because it wouldn’t hurt him to have a small vacation, he deserves one because he works so hard all the time.

Name: Whitney Walker School: Prairie Grove High School Secretary/Treasurer/Region 1 Director FAVORITE QUOTE: “The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.” WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION? One of my biggest inspirations is my mom. I think that sometimes she gets lost in the whirlwind of our busy schedules between things at home, cattle shows, pig shows and horse shows that she doesn’t get the appreciation and gratitude that she deserves for putting up with dad and us kids. She is so humble about everything and doesn’t like to be in the spotlight and her kindness is apparent in every situation. And for everyone that knows her, knows that she apologizes for legitimately EVERYTHING. FAVORITE SONG? Reckless Love or Austin FAVORITE HOBBY? Even though I don’t have a lot of time for hobbies, I love to play golf with my granddad and I also love traveling anywhere and everywhere (even though its normally with a trailer full of cattle). FAVORITE SHOW ANIMAL AND WHY? “Red” was the first in my red MaineTainer heifer era that lasted for a few years from 2012-2016. She was extremely special to our family and in my opinion, was a freak of a creature. I wish that I had 10 more heifers just like her to show.

FAVORITE MAINE-ANJOU JUNIOR NATIONAL YOU ATTENDED AND WHY? My favorite junior nationals would have to be in Kansas City in 2011 because it was my first national that I got to show at and I was so excited to be princess for the next year.

WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION? My biggest inspiration in my life is my family. They all strive for me to be the best version of myself and to be a good moral human in this world. Without them in my life, I do not think I would have the courage to venture out on my own and be able to have an extraordinary passion for the livestock industry.

If you want to do well in showmanship or at a show, the work doesn’t happen at the show or in the ring, it happens at home. Don’t ever get discouraged if a show doesn’t go as well as you hoped, every judge has a different opinion and you are worth more than you know!

FAVORITE SONG? Beautiful Crazy - Luke Combs FAVORITE HOBBY? My favorite hobby would be raising my own Maine influenced cattle. It is my favorite hobby because I enjoy making breeding decisions and be able to improve the genetics within my own herd. FAVORITE SHOW ANIMAL AND WHY? My favorite show animal is definitely Maine and Crossbred show steers. I have grown up my entire life knowing that I was going to be able to show steers and that is what drove me to be as competitive as I am right now. With these steers you are able to work with them year after year and build a seperate relationship with them along the way. AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

FAVORITE MAINE-ANJOU JUNIOR NATIONAL YOU ATTENDED AND WHY? My favorite Maine-Anjou Junior National was in 2015 because of two reasons.

After getting my undergraduate degree I plan to attend veterinary school somewhere. After attending veterinary school I plan to attend graduate school and get doctorates in Animal Science.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP? Probably one of the hardest questions I have ever had to answer is what I want to be when I grow up. This question hasn’t gotten any easier to answer the older I have got either. However, with my experience on the junior board and my lifetime involvement with cattle, I would really like to work for a breed association. Getting to be apart of something that big and getting to meet all the people involved is something I would truly love to do. WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUNG MAINE-ANJOU EXHIBITORS? My greatest piece of advice for young members is to never give up and work hard.

One of the heifers I showed in 2016 captured my heart the moment I met her. Jackie is full of personality and always brings a smile to my face. Once at a show, she took a bite out of the cheeseburger I was holding. In addition, she knows how to untie any knot and remove every halter you put on her. Jackie and I shared several accomplishments in the ring and she will always hold a special place in my heart for all the wonderful memories we had together. I hope some of her calves have that same willing and kind personality that she possessed.

A note from the President... 2019 AJMAA JUNIOR BOARD PRESIDENT Adison Niese, Ohio We couldn’t have picked a better theme for this year’s junior nationals! The Grand Fiesta was nothing short of amazing and we celebrated the best cattle and kids in the industry. I have always been welcomed into this breed and the same families and new ones have always looked out for me since my first junior nationals in 2016, Showing for the Gold. I can’t say enough about the people who have always welcomed me in, I always look forward to catching up with them. Last year I had the support of those families and was blessed to be elected onto the junior board of directors, placed in senior showmanship and be reserve in a division. I didn’t think it

could get much better. This year, I didn’t take heifers out; I didn’t win contests, I had the honor of being elected president of the AJMAA. Interacting with the younger kids in the ring and at the novice program kept my spirits and energy up. What I’ll always remember is working alongside my closest friends, the retiring board members, one day, and then working with new board members the next. As bittersweet as it was to see good friends go, I know Blakelee Hayes, Dalton Line, Teijor Stope and Cade Van Vilet have so much to offer our association. In a few short months, the fiesta will pick back up at the American Royal. The junior board and Lindsey can’t wait to see you. Until then, good luck to exhibitors at state and county fairs!

2018 RETIRING AMERICAN JUNIOR MAINE-ANJOU BOARD MEMBERS Mikala Denney, Stephanie Kersten, Kassi Rice & Ladd Landgraf

h p e t S

When I was six years old my Dad and I went to the county fair to watch the calf show and by the end of the show I told dad I wanted to try showing. We bought a couple of heifers, Sylvia and Mae Mae. I worked with them all year and by next summer I was able to show them at the county fair. The following year, my dad and grandpa bought me another couple heifers and I ended up with three heifers because I had “Baby” from the year before. The year was 2008 and I attended my first junior national in Kansas City, Mo., the rest is history. I want to thank the Settle’s family for getting me to do all the contests, even though I was so shy and nervous. They told me that if I did the contests, I’d meet other kids, “just like me.” I was introduced to the junior board members in the maroon jacket and I knew I wanted to be the person that little kids look up to. When I decided to turn in my application to run for the AJMAA Junior Board, I told myself that it was my time to show all the younger kids they can be whatever they want. I wanted them see that junior national week is the best week of the year. It sure takes a lot of time and organization. Lindsey does soooo much for this junior national show. The junior board wouldn’t be what they are today without her outstanding leadership and time. She is the glue that keeps us together! I owe her so much thanks and gratitude for her support during these last two years! Lindsey, you are the best junior advisor an

organization could have!! As I bring this term to a conclusion, I want to thank the board members that I served with. You have made my time on the board a complete blast. I will miss working side by side with you, but I know our friendships will remain forever. As you can imagine, the remaining list of individuals and families that helped me get to where I am today is long. I surely didn’t become who I am today without the influence and support from Steve Kruse, Josh Peterson, the Hartman Family, the Bockman Family and the rest of my show family that covers the nation. If it wasn’t for these families I would not have had the best times at junior nationals and develop my love of the cattle industry. I also want to thank Lindsey and Blake for everything they have done for this breed and for the juniors. My time on the board would not have been anywhere near as much fun without them. And finally I need to thank my family. They have always been there for me. I know that I don’t say it enough, but thank you so much to my family for chasing me around the country so I can do what I love; I truly could not do it without you. Without my parents and grandparents, I know I would not be where am today in life. My support system over the past two years has been nothing but outstanding from family to show family. I just want to thank them all. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the last two years serving as your Region 2 Director and all the great experiences.


THANK YOU!

Wow, how fast the time has come and gone! I would like to give a very sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been a part of this journey. The opportunity to serve on the AJMAA Junior Board has been a once in a lifetime experience. I will forever cherish the memories and friendships made along the way. It has been a true honor getting to work with and alongside some of the greatest breeders, people and families in the industry. The Maine-Anjou association will always be home to me and I look forward to continuing my passion for the breed and passing it on to future generations. As I said in my retiring speech, so many of you are like a second family to me and I can’t begin to thank-you enough. I have been blessed with leadership and guidance from so many people in the Iowa Maine-Anjou Association as well as the American Maine-Anjou Association (AMAA) I wish

i s s a K

it were possible to name each one of you. I would like to extend much appreciation to Karen Loudon and the Iowa association for all of your support over the years as well as Miss Lindsey Broek and everyone at the AMAA office. I would also like to take a moment to thank the herdsman for their time and dedication to our juniors. The support you provide to the juniors is second to none. We are very fortunate to have the leaders and mentors we do that make this breed and all of our activities possible. The Maine Association is blessed to have the best of the best.

REGISTRATIONS FOR UPCOMING SHOWS

If the sire is an AI sire and registered at another 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.

ONLINE TRANSFERS

When transferring an animal on line make sure there is not a member number already created for the buyer. Creating more than one number for an individual creates registration problems later. If you find the buyer in the system at a different address please notify the buyer first to confirm the address and then notify the Maine office to update the account. It is always a good idea to always search for the buyer using the search tools before doing the work that way if they have a different address it is caught before entering the registration and transfer. When creating a new profile for a buyer please make sure to never

give a junior a farm name. Please enter the junior’s name on the farm line and also as the contact.

2018 MAPP ENROLLMENT

The 2018 MAPP (Maine-Anjou Performance Program) enrollment will open on Sept. 1, 2018. Enrollments must be completed no later than Dec. 16, 2018.

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 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 up-todate e-mail address for you, if applicable.

MAINE/ANGUS PAPERS

If you wish to obtain a Maine/ Angus registration select the MA/ Angus box when registering on line. You will receive an error that AMAA staff must check the testing and percentage requirements so please make sure to validate your entry to save it so that that AMAA can check the entry. If you submit a registration on paper, please put Maine/Angus in the comment section of the application. If the animal does not qualify as a Maine/Angus it will be recoded as a regular Mainetainer. A Maine/Angus paper will be blue in color, have Maine/Angus under the Maine Logo, and will have MaineTainer across the center of the paper. The animal can be shown as a MaineTainer or Maine Angus. Requirements: *Off spring must be 3/8 or higher to qualify *Bulls and Heifers must be TH/ PHA free by parents or by test *Bulls must be NH, CA and AM free by parents or free by test. Angus pedigrees will not be assumed free of these defects. Bulls must be clean of DS if out of a Red Angus. *Angus percentages will only be counted from actual registered Angus. Commercial Angus percentages will not be used in the Maine/Angus equation.

AMAA Board of Director Profiles compete in the showring, but today it is clear that Maine-Anjou cattle can offer better gains, increased yields and larger profit for commercial producers” says Thomsen. He also points out that Maine-Anjou cattle are the best of both worlds, showring dominance and commercial acceptability.

Comments:

Cory Thomsen Region 1

History of your operation/family and involvement with the Maine-Anjou breed: Cory Thomsen was born and raised in Wayne County Nebraska. Thomsen grew up exhibiting livestock, livestock judging and was an active member of 4-H. He attended Northeast Community College and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he earned his degree in Animal Science. Upon completion of college, Thomsen was fortunate with the opportunities to work for many of the top Maine-Anjou programs in the United States.

Thomsen feels that data collection is the future of the breed. The Maine-Anjou breed has put together the ground work for great things to come. Thomsen says he would like to see continued participation in feed trials, bull tests and other data gathering avenues so we can prove, with solid facts, how outstanding the MaineAnjou breed is. Thomsen looks forward to a bright future in the Maine-Anjou breed and working with the great people associated with it.

What do you see as the strengths of the Maine-Anjou breed and how can those strengths best be used in today’s beef industry:

It was in 1997, during the National Western Stock Show, that Thomsen became fascinated with the Maine-Anjou breed while helping Fred DeRouchey in the Yards. It was then that Thomsen could see the endless possibilities the Maine-Anjou cattle had to offer the beef industry. “It has always been a well known fact that MaineAnjou genetics are necessary to AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

Beau Ebersole Region 2

History of your operation/family and involvement with the Maine-Anjou breed: The Ebersole family has been raising Maine-Anjou cattle since the mid 1970’s. Ebersole Cattle Company started in 1998 when

Beau and his wife, Shanen, graduated from Iowa State University. Beau is currently serving his fifth, three year term on the Iowa Maine-Anjou Association where he has been the President for four of those years. Ebersole’s business focuses on maternal and carcass genetics. Ebersole exhibits Maine-Anjou cattle on the state and national levels and his children have participated in every junior national since 2009 when their oldest was 9. Their involvement continues to grow and their oldest daughter, Adelyda, was recently elected to her second term on the National Junior Board. Currently they market a limited amount of seedstock with the bulk of their calves being marketed through their beef business.

What do you see as the strengths of the Maine-Anjou breed and how can those strengths best be used in today’s beef industry:

Ebersole believes the breed has many strengths and they can bring value to many different kinds of operations. “Within our operation, the ability to keep an efficient, moderate framed cow herd and still get the early growth also transmits into the performance needed in the feedlot and within our grass fed cattle as well. The tenderness we are able to get in the grass fed cattle sets them apart from the rest of the cattle in that niche. For the commercial producers our cattle can go into any cross breeding program and make it better. The ability to hang quality carcasses with less feed makes our calves worth more to feeders.”

What does your present operation do to promote Maine-Anjou genetics, whether


it be locally, state, regional or national:

We market cattle through the Iowa Beef Expo sale yearly and have been exhibiting at most of the majors, the Iowa State Fair, and the World Beef Expo for the past several years. Through Ebersole’s beef program they have had the ability to make contact with many consumers that would have normally had no clue that the Maine-Anjou breed even existed. “Once they try it they ask for it by name. We feel that building recognition for our breed in any way we can is important.” Ebersole is very excited to put our first group of bulls into a feed efficiency testing facility this winter. “Since we calve in April and May, we do not market many bulls as they are too young. Our goal is to have a group of data driven, two year olds available in 2020.”

junior national. Cramer was a past owner of KT Ranch and has owned some of the Maine-Anjou breeds icons like Polleroid and ZTA Blake Ruby 224X along with others. Cramer’s father, Jerry, served as a past American Maine-Anjou Association board member.

What do you see as the strengths of the Maine-Anjou breed and how can those strengths best be used in today’s beef industry:

“By far the best steak you could ask for,” says Cramer. Additionally the Maine-Anjou breed offers strengths in soundness, depth, bone, milk and cattle that you like to look at. Most importantly they grade top cuts of meat as well as more pounds at weaning and fast growth.

What does your present operation do to promote Maine-Anjou genetics, whether it be locally, state, regional or national?:

Cramer is involved with the International cattle display at the Houston Livestock Show as well as hosts a website and Facebook page for interested buyers.

living the American dream.

“I have been involved in raising Maine-Anjou cattle since 1975. We started as a family farm in Ohio, Oakridge Farm, and have seen lots of changes in the breed and association, some good and some not. I would be honored to serve and help in any way that I can to keep the Maine-Anjou breed at the forefront of the beef industy.”

Danny Dupree Region 3

History of your operation/family and involvement with the Maine-Anjou breed: Danny Dupree became involved with the Maine-Anjou breed in 2010 when he purchased their first Maine-Anjou heifer for his son, Addison. “We were very happy with the way we were welcomed into the breed and the people we met at both the state and national level,” who Danny says we now call our friends. Dupree continued to purchase Maine-Anjou show heifers each year after that and both Addison and Austin showed primarily Maine-Anjou the rest of their junior show careers at both the state and national level. In 2014 Dupree made the decision to sell his commercial cows and invest in a registered Maine-Anjou herd. “We purchased a nice set of cows from Jirl Buck in his Fall Sharing the Tradition sale to go with the heifers the boys had been showing and began to AI.” Dupree AI’s all of his cows and has a select set of donors that he IVFs. He sells show heifers through different sales and private treaty and retains heifers each year. His herd now consists

AMAA Board of Director Profiles of approximately 100 head or primarily Maine-Anjou cows. In 2018 Dupree made the decision to invest in better bulls and purchased BKMT Equity at the Bright Lights Maine-Anjou sale in Denver, Colo. Dupree plans to add more high quality bulls, cows and replacement heifers to his herd with the objective to be at 200 cows within the next couple years.

What do you see as the strengths of the Maine-Anjou breed and how can those strengths best be used in today’s beef industry:

When Dupree first began showing he was very pleased with the docility of the cattle. “They are easy to break, get settled down, get on feed and they grow.” When he began running a Maine-Anjou cow herd Dupree appreciated the docility of the breed even more. “They are the calmest cattle I have worked with in the pasture, calving and processing through the chute.” Dupree also appreciates the ability of the cows to make great mothers. “They lay down, calve and get right back up and take care of the calf. My Maine-Anjou cows are the best mother breed I have worked with, which is why most of my herd growth is through retention. I have learned to appreciate the saying that ‘great mothers make great mothers’”.

What does your present operation do to promote Maine-Anjou genetics, whether it be locally, state, regional or national:

We sell select show heifers through consignment sales and private treaty. These heifers have had success at the local, state and national level for their owners which has led to more repeat sales. “I will now be retaining a select set of Maine-Anjou bulls to put into production with my

Mark is concerned about the future of ranching and farming with the low commodity prices. Beauprez wants to produce seedstock that will help the rancher become profitable and sustainable in the beef industry. Additional items of concern for Mark are continued work toward establishing a solid commercial market as well as emphasizing the importance of performance data to other MaineAnjou breeders. “We need to emphasize the strong maternal traits of the breed and continue improving the quality of beef,” says Beauprez. “The public only hears about the negative factors of the beef industry and it’s our responsibility as a breed association to promote the positives of the beef industry.”

AMAA AGI Update by Dan W. Moser, Ph.D, AGI President

AGI Update In June, the American MaineAnjou Association (AMAA) released its latest genetic evaluation. This was the first AMAA evaluation conducted by Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI), a subsidiary of the American Angus Association (AAA), located in St. Joseph, Mo., just up the road from the AMAA offices in Platte City. This new evaluation includes several new features that will result in a more accurate, reliable evaluation today, and more innovation in upcoming months. What is AGI? In 2007, AAA, which had previously contracted with universities to conduct their AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018

72

genetic evaluation, moved to an inhouse evaluation. After the initial investment in computer systems and software, along with additional staff expertise, it was logical to offer such services to other beef industry organizations and in 2009, AGI was formed. Today AGI has a team of four geneticists on staff, and with the support of the AAA information systems team, provides genetic evaluation services to six breed associations in the U.S. and Canada. AMAA joins AAA, Canadian Angus Association, American-International Charolais Association, Canadian Charolais Association and Senepol Cattle Breeders’ Association as AGI genetic evaluation clients.

The genetic evaluation computer software used by AGI is licensed from the University of Georgia (UGA). The UGA Animal Breeding group is recognized as a world leader in genetic evaluation systems, and the same software used for the AMAA evaluation at AGI is also the basis for many of the world’s largest beef, dairy, swine, poultry and aquaculture genetic evaluations. The original UGA genetic evaluation software was developed by award-winning geneticist Dr. Ignacy Mizstal at UGA, and continual upgrades are provided by the genetics research team at UGA, including Drs. Daniela Lourenco, Shogo Tsuruta and Yutaka Masuda.


Breed Averages for 2018 Spring AMAA Genetic Evaluation ACTIVE SIRES ACTIVE DAMS NON-PARENT

CED 7 7 7

The New AMAA Evaluation Maine-Anjou breeders and their customers will find the new AMAA evaluation to be very similar to those produced previously. The traits included in the current release are Calving Ease (direct and maternal), birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight and milk (maternal weaning weight). A combined maternal value (1/2 WW EPD + Milk EPD) is also provided, to identify sires that produce highly productive daughters due to both growth and milk. The base for the new evaluation was designed to match the previous one as closely as possible, so that breed average EPDs remain familiar to AMAA members. In general, younger, more current animals changed less in the new evaluation, but some historical animals’ EPDs changed more significantly, because of more accurate calculations of genetic trends. Like any calculation of Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs), the new Maine-Anjou evaluation accounts for environmental effects,

WW 44 46 44

selective mating and genetic trend, allowing direct comparisons of sires and dams across herds, even under different management conditions. A key responsibility of AMAA members is to submit complete, accurate records to the database, and to correctly designate contemporary groups when certain animals have received preferential treatment. One new feature of the evaluation is that while AMAA data is the primary source for the evaluation, more complete information on Angus ancestors is available to more accurately evaluate AMAA registered cattle with Angus heritage. This allows AMAA members using current Angus genetics in their breeding programs to gain a more accurate description of those Angusinfluenced cattle. Phase Two Research Underway This summer and fall, AGI will be updating the carcass trait evaluation for AMAA, developing improved analytical

models to combine ultrasound scanning records of breeding cattle and carcass data from Maineinfluenced fed cattle, to produce new carcass EPDs. Also underway is development of a single-step genomic evaluation for MaineAnjou, similar to that recently adopted by Angus, Charolais and other breeds. This new genomic evaluation, when fully developed and implemented, will provide the most accurate evaluation of DNAtested young AMAA cattle. In other AGI client breeds, genomic testing, when incorporated into a single-step genomic evaluation, provides similar EPD accuracy as having ten to twenty progeny records. AGI is proud to serve AMAA and its members and looks forward to these and other enhancements as AMAA and AGI staff work together to produce the most accurate, timely and powerful genetic evaluation of MaineAnjou and Maine-influenced cattle possible.
