J. Neil Orth, Executive Vice President
The Best Progress Is Slow and Steady Progress is not accidental.
Hard as it is to believe, two-thirds of 2015 is history. Once the spring sale
season wound down, we found ourselves fast-forwarding into summer. Spring sales, overall, were up significantly from 2014. Although the fed cattle market has shown some weakness in the past few weeks, the analysts most all agree cattle are still in short supply. We recently concluded the 2015 American-International Junior National Show and Leadership Conference in Saint Paul, Minn. Two hundred forty-eight juniors and 365 cattle entries representing 24 states competed for much more than a blue ribbon. In addition to all live cattle events, this outstanding group of young adults competed in 13 educational and academic events. Team events tested their abilities to work together toward a common goal. It’s no secret, the beef industry as a whole, is an aging demographic. The question with no absolute answer is what a breed association or breeders can do to attract the next generation of decision makers? Obviously, the answer
staying the course and continuing to report valuable phenotypic and genomic data. What hasn’t been reported, and is arguably even more significant, is the 2015 Charolais National Cattle Evaluation Genetic Trends. The Genetic Trends table documents across the board genetic improvements. From 1999 to 2014, birth weights have dropped by 66% and weaning and yearling weights have nearly doubled. Calving ease has shown a dramatic improvement—from 0.1 to 3.3 in 15 years. Carcass weight has increased 100% and ribeye has more than doubled. If you haven’t by now, study the chart and table at http://www. charolaisusa.com/pdf/2015/b%20table.pdf and http://www.charolaisusa.com/ pdf/2015/b%20graph.pdf. This statistical information is an indicator that Charolais breeders are using the data to make genetic improvements. AICA members and seedstock producers are to be commended for staying the course for the past 25 years. From the early years of only having phenotypic data to more recent years of ultrasound and genomic data, the
“.....hope is a next generation decision maker will remember the benefits of Charolais genetics and positive experiences as an AIJCA member.”
is one of the most complicated the beef industry, as well as all of production agriculture, has ever faced. We can, however, help by providing financial assistance towards furthering an educational goal. This year, 39 deserving students were awarded $45,000 in scholarships. When the time comes the overarching hope is a next generation decision maker will remember the benefits of Charolais genetics and positive experiences as an AIJCA member. Our hope is a youngster, whose first project was a gentle show heifer or steer, will embrace hard work, personal responsibility and begin to have a sense of the enormity and the importance of the beef industry to food production. We hope these young adults complete their educations and are fortunate enough to return to a family operation or find a place to start their professions in agriculture. The most recent June/July Charolais Journal details AICA registrations and memberships. In 2014, AICA reported 55,725 active females and 37,351 females enrolled in Whole Herd Rewards (WHR). Just over 33,600 head were registered. Charolais breeders and AICA members are to be commended for
resulting genetic trend places this breed squarely in the center of relevant conversation about the beef industry. Lower birth, heavier pay weights and improved end product merit continues to drive demand for Charolais genetics in commercial cow-calf operations across the country. Progress is not accidental. Successful national junior events, positive breed statistics, engaged membership, increased sales and industry support lead to the conclusion that progress is the result of hard work, discipline and commitment to make a difference. Slow, deliberate progress is the result of young and old making contributions in their own way toward the greater good. Be sure to check out the upcoming events calendar and make plans to join us in Kansas City for the fall AICA membership meetings and the American Royal ROE Show and the Ten Grand Sale, October 30-31; the 37th National Charolais Show, November 15, at the North American International Livestock Exposition, Louisville, Ken., or attend a fall sale anywhere across the country.

AmericanInternational Charolais Association The AICA is the official registry for Charolais and Charbray cattle in the United States. Charolais cattle were first brought to the U.S. in 1936. In 1957, the American Charolais Breeders Association and the International Charolais Breeders Association merged forming the present AICA. Membership in the AICA is obtainable when the applicant has ownership in at least one animal, and has paid the initial membership fee of $125. AICA annual dues are $100.
The deadline to place advertising in the 2015-2016 Cattleman’s Source is August 1 and the October 2015 Charolais Journal is August 25. Contact your field representative about these and other advertising opportunities. New Features for the Online Registration System
AICA’s online system has several newly enhanced features. Log in with your breeder number and password and you’ll find additional reports listed under the “My Reports” tab. The new Sire/Dam Performance Summary gives options to print lifetime records on individual animals or all active sires and or dams. You also have the option to get reports by calving year. Many other reports are available including performance reports and ultrasound reports. Ultrasound barn sheets can be generated using the report function. You have the option to print barn sheets by calving year or by individual animals. Printing quick copies of individual certificates is another useful enhancement of the “reports” function. Members use the Herd EPD reports to keep up on the most current numbers for the animals in their herd. This list can be sorted by sex and listed in several different orders. There is also the option to choose a birth date range. Under the “tools” tab, you will find a new “Data Export” button. This data export gives you the flexibility to export data on animals in your herd and use those data files in your own management packages. You can download and save the files directly to your computer in a CSV (can be opened in Excel) format. There are
A U G U S T 2015
many options within this feature including selecting the type of animal to export and specific data. AICA using GeneSeek
The AICA is now using GeneSeek for parentage testing, contact Marilou Wegner to request a kit. The kit is specific to the animal being tested. AICA rules require AI sire and donor cows be tested if they have not been. AI Sires
AI Sires used “out of herd” must be DNA tested before calves can be registered. Check the bull’s record to make sure the DNA work has been done before submitting registration papers. AICA rules require signatures on bulls you do not own. Signatures can be submitted online, fax, mail or e-mail. CharolaisUSA.com Advertising and Marketing Opportunities

AICA was one of the first breed registries to establish a show program, Roll of Excellence (ROE) that provides national level competition on a regional basis across the United States. The AICA ROE Sire program recognizes sires for the achievement of progeny in National ROE Shows, Class A ROE Shows and Class B ROE Shows. A sire qualifies as a ROE Sire when progeny have accumulated a minimum total of 400 ROE points. A minimum of 200 points must be class A ROE points. For an outline of the ROE program, contact the AICA Director of Activities.

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.

Thanks to LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin), parasite control will never be the same. Comparing more than 15,000 head in nine states, stockers treated for parasites with LONGRANGE gained an average of 28 lbs. more over DECTOMAX® (doramectin), CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) and ivermectin-treated cattle – even when used in combination over 103 days.1 And at today’s market prices, that adds up to an extra $56 per head. Not bad for around a $5 investment.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Do not treat within 48 days of slaughter. Not for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows, or in veal calves.

How length of calving season affects a health program By: Melissa DePriest, DVM Long calving seasons can limit the effectiveness of your vaccination and health program. Discover how to maximize the value of these programs by implementing a shorter calving season. Let’s back up and think about what affects the length of the calving season…the length of the breeding season, right? So, a change in the breeding season must occur to impact the length of the calving season. Some producers will argue that there is a consistent cash flow with a year-long breeding season because there are always a few calves to sell if money gets tight. However, I would like to discuss a few benefits of having a defined, shorter, breeding season, which ultimately results in a defined, shorter, calving season. A top-notch vaccination program
Dr. Melissa DePriest is a 2013 graduate of the University of Missouri and works for Livestock Veterinary Service in Eldon, Missouri. She is a food animal exclusive practitioner that works primarily with cow-calf and stocker beef operations. Dr. DePriest and Livestock Veterinary Service also provide non-traditional veterinary services such as production record management and nutritional consulting.
A U G U S T 2015
This is often overlooked by producers and veterinarians. When it comes to reproductive vaccines, you must have a defined, short breeding season (30-90 days) to get the most out of your money. Timing of reproductive vaccination is critical for maximizing the effectiveness of these products. Reproductive vaccines must be given prior to breeding to have the greatest impact on preventing disease. While it may be convenient to vaccinate cows and heifers at preg-check, this does not allow for the optimal protection of these products. Protection when you need it most Most reproductive diseases that vaccines protect against occur within the first few months of gestation. In addition, most vaccines given during preg-check will not be effective for the next gestation (depending on the duration of immunity of the product used). To prevent abortions caused by diseases that you can vaccinate against, animals must be vaccinated prior to breeding. To best protect your herd, all animals should also be vaccinated at the same time. Following administration, peak vaccine protection occurs within the first few weeks. Vaccinating animals during the middle of pregnancy sets up the peak protection to a time past the highest risk of infection. This can increase your herd’s risk for reproductive diseases. Vaccinating all animals at one time and providing optimal protection is only possible if you have a defined breeding season. Effectively use MLV vaccines Vaccinating for reproductive diseases prior to breeding also allows you to boost protective immunity by safely using a modified-live vaccine (MLV) program. Studies have shown that MLV products offer the most immune protection. There are MLV products labeled for use during pregnancy, but they require a dose to be given pre-breeding for optimal safety. Some concern is raised when using MLV products in pregnant animals because vaccine strains of virus have been suggested to cause abortion storms. However, safety studies have shown that if MLV products are given according to label directions or prior to breeding, there is essentially no risk of infecting a gestating calf with a vaccine strain of virus. To provide the best protection against reproductive diseases, MLV products should be administered to the entire herd around 3 weeks pre-breeding. Keep in mind that heifers should CHAROLAIS JOURNAL
be given 2 rounds of MLV vaccinations prior to breeding to ensure safety and protection from disease. By defining a breeding season, you can safely use modified live vaccine at the optimal time to prevent reproductive diseases. Protecting your calf crop A defined breeding season also allows you to maximize the effectiveness of vaccines in your calves. Calves will be similar ages and can be vaccinated at the optimal time to provide the best protection for each product. If bulls are pulled from the herd at strategic times during the year, this will also protect maturing heifers from being bred too early in life. Other benefits of a short breeding/calving season Selects for fertility in cows When you define a short breeding season, subfertile cows and heifers can be identified and culled from the herd. Non-pregnant or “open” animals can be identified by your veterinarian following the breeding season by pregnancy examinations via rectal palpation, ultrasonography, or blood test. By identifying and culling non-pregnant animals, you will reduce the number of non-productive mouths you are feeding and reduce overall feed costs. This makes your herd more efficient over time. If non-pregnant cows and heifers are removed from the herd each year, you will essentially select for cattle that are best adapted to your production system. Diagnosis of reproductive failure When non-pregnant animals are identified during pregnancy examinations following a defined breeding season, your veterinarian can discuss reasons that your cows are not pregnant and offer options to help diagnose the problem. Infectious diseases as well as management strategies can be addressed. As mentioned above, an optimally timed modifiedlive vaccination program will reduce risk of some reproductive diseases and can be safely implemented in herds with a defined breeding season. Managing calf scours Scours is commonly spread to young calves born into an environment contaminated by older animals. A shorter calving season makes a Sandhills calving program more practical. Implementing a Sandhills program can reduce the risk of scours in calves without the use of vaccines or antibiotics. In this program all cows calve in a single pasture for 2 weeks. The cows that haven’t calved are then moved to a fresh, new pasture for 7 days and the cow-calf pairs remain
in the original pasture. Cows that haven’t calved continue to move to new pastures every 7 days until the herd is done calving. With a short calving season, fewer pastures are required to allow this program to work effectively. Uniform calf crop Calves that are born in a short calving season are similar in size at weaning, which is more valuable to buyers. A short calving season allows you to sell an entire calf crop at one time and reduces the time and energy required to sell calves. Calving season is more labor intensive for a shorter amount of time While short calving seasons will require more of your attention, you can plan on devoting to it for a limited time. Calving time is when the most death loss occurs on a cow-calf operation. Most of this loss can be preventable if energy and resources are focused during this time. Quality of life may also be improved if you aren’t worrying about calving yearround or for an extended amount of time.

2015 Junior National Show Dedicatee – Bill Nottke Bill Nottke was born and raised in Clifton, Illinois, where his father’s family had been involved with farming since the 1800s. At a young age, the face of agriculture started to change around him. With a limited amount of land available for livestock, he raised and showed sheep as his 4-H and FFA projects. When he was a junior in high school, one day in Ag class he flipped through the pages of a Charolais Journal and saw a picture of the bull, Sam 951. Seeing that magnificent animal was perhaps the defining moment when Bill decided that if granted the opportunity, he promised himself one day he would raise Charolais cattle of his own. Not having the chance to stay on the family farm after schooling, he ventured out on his own. Starting Riverdale Land & Livestock was the culmination of a lifelong dream for Bill. It started out only as a hobby and it became gratifying for him to see the herd develop over the years. He began with a group of 55 commercial bred cows and the purchase of his first two registered Charolais bulls to rebreed with. Slowly he began to add registered cows, many obtained from dispersal sales and private treaty sales. Growing the herd, mostly from within, today the herd consists of all registered females. Although watching Riverdale grow into a small seedstock operation, Bill thought he still needed a hobby. Today Riverdale is also home to a small breeding herd of registered Texas Longhorns. The Longhorn breed is very unique, interesting and historic cattle, with a place in the industry and he enjoys them very much. “However, they don’t come close to holding a candle to the Charolais breed,” Bill mentioned.
By Megan Johnson, Beaver, Okla.
Bill joined the association in 1997, when Mitch Thomas was president and since then there have been several others who had the privilege of holding office. “Their guidance, long range planning and fiscal responsibility along with our association staff has created the successful entity we enjoy today,” are the thoughts of Nottke, when discussing the influence he anticipates to have among the association. “I hope to do my best as many of the past presidents have advised the incoming officer ‘just don’t screw it up!’” Considered a strong advocate for younger generations in the agriculture industry, Bill and his family try to give help and influence too as many of the youth organizations as they can. It’s one of his biggest pleasures to be able to “give something back.” They have been watching the juniors long enough to see several of the kids go through the AIJCA and now have their own kids participating. When asked what advice he would offer an AIJCA member, Bill offers, “Think like a fox and work like an ox.” When asked about his accomplishments within the breed, Bill found it hard to analyze. “I am still waiting to produce that breed changing sire like Wyoming Wind or 914, but in my own little way. By staying true to our breeding program I feel every year our cattle have improved, therefore we have helped to advance the overall quality of the breed,” he said. However he believes his biggest accomplishment are the friends he has made in this wonderful Charolais family.

2015 Junior National Conference Honoree – The Fink Family By Macie Wagstaff, Henderson, Texas This year’s Junior National Conference Honoree is a family that has been actively involved in the Charolais industry for over twenty years. Galen and Lori Fink grew up on eastern Kansas farms, learning the importance of sound decisions in cattle judging, business and leadership. They currently reside in Randolph, Kansas with their daughter Megan at Fink Beef Genetics; which began in 1977 with one cow and very little capital. Galen said, “We had to think out of the box to overcome the lack of land and other resources.” The Finks started with the Angus breed first. Their involvement with the Charolais breed began in 1993 when they recognized the need for Charolais cattle and what the breed had to offer to the their cattle program. They started with half-blood Charolais bulls and then introduced purebred Charolais not long after. Galen has given presentations about the program at Fink Beef Genetics in over 20 states, Mexico and Canada. They have successfully made their name very well-known across the country over the years. The Fink family is an active all around family. Galen has been the Kansas Charolais Junior Advisor for seven years until retiring this year. He has served on many committees and boards, representing the American-International Charolais Association, the Beef Improvement Federation and Kansas Livestock Association (KLA). As well as judged in 22 states and Mexico which include three Junior National Shows. Lori has been on many committees, like Galen, some of which are, the Kansas State Fair Board, KLA Director, Kansas Beef Council, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Federation Board and President of the Kansas Charolais Association. The family was actively involved with the planning of the 2014 Junior National. Galen and Lori were the planning committee chairmen and Megan was on the awards committee. Megan is a past American-International Junior Charolais Association President and Kansas State University graduate. She recently became a Kansas Charolais Junior Advisor. Megan started showing Charolais 46

cattle in 2000 along with five other friends. The Fink family’s first Junior National was held in Minnesota in 2002. In 2005 Galen and Lori took seven girls including Megan and 17 head of cattle; in which, all but three had come from Fink Beef Genetics. The Finks were happy to have girls and boys over at their place taking care of their animals and hauling them to different shows. Megan and Lori’s favorite Junior National memory was in 2005, when Megan won Reserve Grand Champion Female. Megan said that she never expected that to happen to her and that female was the start of everything she has shown over the past years. However, Galen’s favorite Junior National was 2009 in California, where Megan won Champion Bred and Owned Charolais Female and Champion Senior Showmanship. Megan has had numerous class winners, reserves and grand champions over her show career. The importance of Junior National in their eyes is more than just showing. You get to meet exhibitors from all over the USA and make lifelong friends. Megan said “At Junior National, you compete in contests, and you have so much fun in between. I encourage juniors to remember that it is not all about winning but the friendships you make that will stick with you the most.” Galen and Lori encourage AIJCA Members to step out of their comfort zones and chase their dreams, being all that they can be, not look back on the past but look to the future. Not only have Galen and Lori taken extra juniors under their wing with provided them with the opportunity to show; but, they have made a huge impact on the lives of our juniors as well. In supporting the Kansas Juniors, Junior National sponsorships, helping plan of a Junior National and much more. Galen and Lori will go out of their way to help others that need the help. In 2012, the Fink Family was named Family of the Year. The Fink family has gone above and beyond for the AIJCA and Charolais breed.

Directors By Area
Hey everyone! For those of you who I have not had the chance to meet yet, my name is Megan Johnson and I am excited to be serving as your President for the AIJCA in the 2015-2016 year. I have been raising and showing Charolais cattle for 10 years now, with my first Junior National being held in Hutchinson, Kansas in 2005. I currently reside in Stillwater, Oklahoma where I attend Oklahoma State University majoring in agricultural communications with an emphasis in agriculture business. I grew up in Beaver, Oklahoma where my parents David and Kim, run our family cow-calf operation. Through the years, I have had the opportunity to travel the country exhibiting Angus and Charolais cattle.
succeed, grow, learn responsibility, create morals and much more. In 1971 the AIJCA was established and today in the year 2015 the organization continues to grow. As active junior members we are the future of this breed, as we build from the generations before us. No matter what your age, you can leave an impact on someone. Whether it is showing them the way, or just saying hello in the morning. The littlest things are what matter. What kind of impact will you leave behind? Through all my years of showing around the country, the Junior National has been my favorite show. There are many different contests to compete in, conference sessions to attend and also the friends we make along the way. It is
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. ”

The juniors just ended an exciting week in Saint Paul, Minnesota and I hope everyone had an amazing time at this year’s Junior National. Whether it was your first time to attend or your fifth time, I hope that you made unforgettable memories with lifelong friends. Thank you to all the Minnesota and Wisconsin juniors and adults for everything you did to make this event possible. I would like to commend a job well done to Haley Stalcup, your 2014-2015 AIJCA President and the rest of the junior board on a successful past year. Also, to congratulate and welcome the new board as we look forward to an exciting year ahead. I encourage all juniors to meet or greet their area director along with any other director should the occasion arise. Please note that each board member is listed on the junior viewpoint page in the journal with contact information. The last three years I have served on the junior board and now I have the chance to serve as your president. The impact these junior national shows and leadership conferences have had on me, I can only hope to impact on someone else. I hope that by being president I can leave you with something that you will remember or one day aspire to be in a blue jacket yourself. I find being a part of a junior breed association is one of the best things for young people. The American-International Junior Charolais Association provides junior members with a foundation that can only help them to
wise to remember that it is not just about the show ring and the blue ribbon. We, as juniors, should be proud of the cattle we raise, be educated producers and have an open mind to the changes we face in the agriculture industry today. We must not forget how fortunate we are to be a part of the beef industry. It hasn’t been long since we went our separate ways from Minnesota; however, I hope that everyone is already looking forward to next year! Save the date on your calendars for June 26th- July 1st for “Show-Me Your Charolais on Route 66” in Springfield, Missouri. Be prepared for a fun filled week packed with many opportunities. The Junior Board is always looking for ideas to improve our association. If you have any suggestions, questions or feedback don’t hesitate to contact myself or a member of the junior board. We love hearing from you and finding ways to make Junior Nationals a memorable event! State fair season is rapidly approaching, good luck to all that are competing! Also, the National Charolais Show will be held at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky this fall. See you all down the road! “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” - John Quincy Adams CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

M. G. “Maximo” Michaelis III of Michaelis Ranches died on August 9, 2014 succumbing to injuries suffered at the family ranch in Coahuila Mexico. Maximo, aged 76, was grandson of one of the founding breeders of Charolais in the United States, Max G. Michaelis Sr. of Kyle, Texas. Maximo believed in “eyeballing” cattle and in-herd performance testing. His selection criteria combined visual evaluation of structure, correctness and fertility with performance data from the ranch scale. He never compromised his own breeding program’s goal of producing thrifty, fertile, and economical cattle for the commercial breeder in exchange for the show ring. He was an admirer of good cattle no matter the breed. He often said, “Strip off the hide and underneath is red meat.” His grandfather began using Charolais in 1934 on the ranch in Kyle, Texas. Unlike many early breeders using Brahman cattle as their base, Max Sr. crossed the first Charolais bull, Blanco, on his registered Polled Hereford and Shorthorns. The horned Charolais breed began much of it’s polled origins on Michaelis Ranch. Maximo also recognized and selected for the red factor in Charolais long before it was accepted or desired by other breeders or the AICA. His breeding program stemmed from one cow, MGM Dorie, whose progeny exhibited consistently excellent physical traits as well as a darker cream color. He began a genetic breeding program resulting in, after many years, dark red purebred Charolais. He never outcrossed to hide defects or highlight attributes in his cattle. Instead, he used line breeding to eliminate or accentuate desired traits. He was a student of genetics and a learned breeder. He was a cattleman’s cattleman. Maximo is survived by his wife, Sharon, and sons Maximo IV and Carl Michaelis. Maximo looked forward to the birth of his first grandchild, Aidan, born two months after his grandfather’s death. The family continues to ranch in Kyle, Texas and Coahuila Mexico. Obituary
John S. Mitchell Jr., Koshkonong, Missouri passed away peacefully at his home June 12 after a long battle with cancer and a celebration of his life was held June 15. He was born March 1, 1939 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. In 1961, he married Bonnie Lea Shuman and they started a long journey together. A veteran of the United States Marine Corps, member of the Marine Corps League and an Eagle Scout, Mitchell earned his Master of Science in Agriculture at the University of Florida in 1966. Mitchell spent his entire career working with Charolais cattle, managing operations in Connecticut, North Carolina, Mississippi and Missouri before founding Mitchell Management, a purebred sales management business, in 1992. He was a member of the Missouri Charolais Association and the American International Charolais Association. 60

Mitchell was also a member of the All Saints Episcopal Church in West Plains, Missouri and served on the vestry. An avid sports fan he enjoyed the New York Yankees and his alma mater the Florida Gators. He was a volunteer and a favorite substitute teacher which kept him young at heart. He is survived by his wife; son Brush S. Mitchell his wife Connie and grandson Jacob of Mtn. Grove, Missouri; son John S. Mitchell III and granddaughter Stacie of Koshkonong, Missouri; and son Clifford C. Mitchell of Oklahoma City, OK. Sister Carolyn and Vince Radkins of St. Helena Island, South Carolina and brother Walker W. Mitchell and wife Charo of Madrid, Spain. He was preceded in death by son Russell Walker Mitchell; his parents John and Carolyn Mitchell and brother David S. Mitchell.

The American Royal Association announced that the fourth annual American Royal Steak Competition Winner will be announced at their 2015 TableSteaks Celebration on October 22, 2015. Beef producers from across the nation are invited to submit rib eye steaks to compete for the best tasting steak. Steaks will be judged by a panel of experts. “Three years ago marked the first time for this event at the American Royal,” says Bob Petersen, President and CEO of the American Royal. “Most traditional cooking contests are like the American Royal World Series of Barbecue® – they are mainly about preparation. This competition is about recognizing America’s best steak.” Each steak will be prepared in an identical manner at K-State University Olathe Campus. Points will be assigned for flavor, juiciness, and texture. The judging will take place early October and the winners will be honored at the American Royal 2015 TableSteaks Celebration on October 22. “This is a great way for beef producers from all over the country to be judged purely on the taste of their steak. Every entry is treated equally and judged according to the same criteria. We are excited to have another year of this event taking place through the American Royal,” said Todd Graves, cattle producer and partner in the law firm of Graves Garrett LLC. It is hard to imagine a more appropriate place to hold a steak competition than the American Royal where 116 years ago the Country’s first exposition and sale of purebred cattle took place. Steaks are submitted frozen before September 18, 2015 to the K-State Olathe Campus and entry forms must be submitted online at www. americanroyal.com/events/2015/steak-competition . There is no entry fee for this competition.
