A LEGACY OF LEADERSHIP
By Sharla Ishmael
When Neil Orth’s portrait is hung in the Saddle and Sirloin gallery this fall, he’ll be joining industry greats who once mentored him as a young man. Those who know him best say his biggest imprint on the livestock business can be seen in the successful careers of so many individuals he taught, encouraged and inspired as a mentor himself over the last five decades. after Michigan State University, Orth worked as a fieldman for Drover’s Journal under the guidance of another livestock marketing legend, Fos Palmer. One of the clients he called on in his territory was a big-time As a young man growing up in Seaton, Hampshire hog breeding family, the Illinois, on the place his father and Lindskogs. In 1969, Orth called on the grandfather farmed and raised Hereford Lindskogs about advertising for their cattle, J. Neil Orth probably didn’t fall sale. Eddie Lindskog mentioned foresee the different tracks his career their son, Brad, was just starting to show would eventually take. Then again, if steers and would Orth mind taking a you know Orth you also realize quickly look at what they had in the barn. that the gears are always turning behind “Out of this lean-to shed came a his quiet, yet warm, demeanor and the smoky steer unlike anything I had ever twinkling in his eyes. Foresight is a seen before,” Orth remembers. “They defining characteristic of his journey— had bought the steer in a sale the fall before and were thinking of taking him as a cattleman, a livestock marketing professional and, for the last 30 years, a to the Illinois State Fair beef carcass breed association executive. show.” Lindskog says Orth had a better For instance, in his first full-time job idea. “When Neil saw him, his first words were, ‘Man, don’t even consider taking him to a carcass show!’ He went on to explain that times were changing in the cattle industry, and we should consider taking him to the International Livestock Show, where diverse ideas were acted upon. Dr. Don Good, Kansas State University, was to be the judge. Neil told us Dr. Good could be one person to make a Conoco - 1969 International Livestock Show Grand Champion bold and forward-thinking decision, signaling change CHAROLAIS JOURNAL
for cattle type in the industry.” If you haven’t guessed it already, the steer was the famous “Conoco”— the first crossbred steer to win the International Livestock Show. More than just a single show, Conoco set in motion a huge change in the industry from the fat, little “belt-buckle” type of purebred Angus, Shorthorn and Hereford steers to the explosion of Continental breeds and crossbreeding. If Orth hadn’t been there to advise the Lindskogs, Conoco might have won the Illinois State Fair carcass show, but he wouldn’t have been the turning point of type change for the cattle industry (particularly the Charolais breed) that he was. The Conoco story is also a great example of another distinguishing Orth characteristic — being perfectly willing to take a back seat so others can shine in the lights. Few people probably know of his connection to that steer because he just didn’t broadcast it. He was there the day Dr. Good slapped the steer champion, but he stayed in the background because, he says, as a Drovers representative he didn’t want to be seen as showing favoritism. “You will never hear Neil brag of his accolades and accomplishments, as he is as humble as they come. I feel that is a true testament to the individual that Neil is. Quietly confident, full of integrity,” wrote Cody Beck, southwest representative for the AmericanInternational Charolais Association, in one of 158 letters of support for Neil Orth’s nomination for the Saddle & Sirloin Portrait Award. A U G U S T 2 0 2 1 17
The letters came from 27 states, four foreign countries, seven previous Saddle & Sirloin Portrait recipients, seven fellow breed executives, 23 current and past employees and more from various facets of the business, from auctioneers to academics. One supporter called Orth his hero, another named his son after him. Most spoke about his professionalism, poise under fire and people skills, not to mention a sharp eye for the right kind of cattle. Then there’s this letter. “In my opinion, his greatest attribute has been instilling the love and passion for the industry to the younger generations he has encountered and served. I have been privileged to be a part of that group and, most importantly, fortunate to call him … Dad,” wrote daughter Jamie Orth Lane. While I was growing up, I knew my father as a cattleman, a marketer and a historian. I remember being at my grandparent’s house and seeing a picture of a Chicago Champion steer and being unable to process that my dad was telling me he and my grandpa raised him (a HerefordSimmental named Bold Move, shown by Kristin Lindskog in 1972). “That picture proudly hangs in my living room today and his grandchildren often comment on how competitive that steer would be today. He taught me many things about breeding cattle and the one that I easily remember is if it

doesn’t fit in the industry, it shouldn’t fit in the showring. Fads were not allowed at our house! I can’t even begin to place a value on the cattle he helped market throughout the years, but I do know he was influential in the marketing of many industry-changing genetics,” she added. “We have had many conversations about this young kid or that young kid and what a great one (auctioneer, breeder, marketer) he is going to be. Just like his sense in finding a “green” one for us to show back in the day, he has that same sense with people. And perhaps that will be his greatest legacy, finding the right people for the right job and equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to continue to move this industry forward,” Jamie wrote. She and her brothers, Brian and Scott, formed the Orth Outfit and were very successful showing the Hereford cattle they raised, including a number of national champions at the Hereford Junior Nationals in the 1980s.
Right time, right place In addition to stockmanship that comes from a being part of a generational family farm, Orth had the benefit of going to Michigan State University (MSU) at a time when young graduate students were there who would go on to become industry icons — like Harlan Ritchie. In fact, Ritchie (a fellow portrait member) has said Orth was on one of the best livestock judging teams he ever coached at Michigan State and was “the most talented on a very talented team.” Orth also became herdsman at MSU’s purebred beef unit under the guidance of Ritchie and Larry Cotton. He also worked at Penn State under Herman Purdy (another portrait member), as a team member taking the university’s show cattle on the road. Spearheaded by Gary Minish (portrait member), who was an MSU graduate student at the time, Orth took on a very interesting side gig during his college years, which in turn led to his first full-time job out of college. The Central National Bank of Chicago hired him to manage and take on tour four consecutive grand champion steers from the International Livestock Show.

Agriculture joined in and wanted Orth to take the champion steer overseas, to West Berlin, Germany to display at the World Trade Fair and promote U.S. beef. In addition to a paid trip around Europe, Orth had the opportunity to be an ambassador for the American beef industry and it gave him insight into the value of public relations and strategic marketing. It was during one of these steer tours in the Midwest where Orth happened to meet some folks with
Drovers. “They asked if I would consider becoming a fieldman,” he explains. “I said ‘Yes, I sure would.’” He started as a fieldman for Drovers in 1968, with his whole territory being just one-half of the state of Illinois. It was a very different time in livestock publishing when there was enough money being invested in print advertising to support a fieldman in just half of a state. Orth was good at selling ads because he was good with people and an exceptional ringman at CHAROLAIS JOURNAL
sales. Soon, his territory increased and by 1970 he was promoted to director of field staff and advertising sales manager. It was a quick rise at a very prestigious publication, and he credits part of what he learned about being a good salesman to Fos Palmer (yet another member of the portrait gallery). “Fos was semi-retired at the time, and I was fortunate enough to somehow catch his eye,” Orth recalls. “We’d go make herd visits together. He never talked about selling ads, but his big deal was we would rehearse the dog’s name, the wife’s name, all that kind of stuff before we got out of the vehicle. He gave me a rate card, but most of what he instilled was people skills. “He taught me that cows don’t buy advertising; people do,” Orth says. It was the glory days of livestock advertising when tax laws brought a lot of wealth into the cattle business — that and all of the “new” Continental breeds exploding on the scene. Between 1970 and 1987, gross ad sales revenue increased at Drovers by several hundred percent. In 1983, Orth was named associate publisher and he assumed supervision over both editorial and sales departments. In 1984, he was named the Livestock Marketer of the Year. In 2000, Neil was inducted into the Livestock Publications Council Hall of Fame for meritorious service to the livestock publishing industry. “Also, 90% of the breed associations did not own their own magazine until the mid-70s and 80s. All of those things were happening that will never happen again,” he explains. In 1987, as the industry’s economic situation shifted, Orth left Drovers to form a full-service marketing company, The Connection, Inc., specializing in comprehensive marketing services for purebred and commercial producers. In 1988, plot twist — Orth was hired as executive vice president of the International Brangus Breeders Association. It was a different role for Orth, but one he had actually considered for a while. “I always looked up to breed association execs like Hop Dickinson at Hereford, Pete Swaffar at Shorthorn, Dick Spader at Angus and Roger Hunsley, also at Shorthorn,” he explains. “I saw how they handled themselves and I thought if you really liked the livestock A U G U S T 2 0 2 1 19
business it was a great place to be. I thought I might like to do that someday. Then Brangus contacted me.” At that time, many breed associations were struggling with the implementation of EPDs and how to process, utilize, and ensure the accuracy of performance data. It was also a financially difficult time as the breed association world struggled to adapt to the sudden change in tax laws that sucked out quite a bit of registrations and money from their coffers. While some breeds wasted time arguing about it, Orth was able to convince Brangus board members to get on the data train. During his 12-year tenure at IBBA, the breed: • Began collecting ultrasound data and funded ultrasound research at Kansas State and Auburn. • Implemented multiple programs to collect and quantify data. • Developed carcass EPDs. • Developed a performance registration certificate. • Was the first breed to publish ribeye area EPDs. • Implemented Whole Herd Reporting. • Was the first breed association to publish fat thickness and intramuscular fat EPDs. • Doubled cash reserves from 1990-98. When he took over the helm at the American-International Charolais Association in 2001, Orth brought with him the same ability to guide membership to embrace decisions that have moved the Charolais breed forward. Under his leadership, the Charolais association has: • Tripled cash reserves to $6 million. • Adopted Whole Herd Reporting. • Enhanced EPDs with genomic data (GE-EPDs). • Developed industry’s first Terminal Sire Index. • Implemented single step genomic evaluation. • Began evaluating udder score data. • Launched a bi-annual tabloid targeting the commercial industry. When AICA brought him to Kansas City, Orth also focused on giving his time and leadership to the American Royal, a show that was struggling. He’s served as the livestock committee chairman for 15 years and served on the junior premium auction committee for more than 20 years. In 2015, Neil was presented the Lifetime Achievement 20
A U G U S T 2021
Award by the American Royal for his dedication and outstanding service. “Sitting on the block, witnessing and impacting every child who has entered that ring over the last 20 years, is Mr. Neil Orth,” wrote Glen Alan Phillips, Charlie Tetrick and Kim Palmer, with the American Royal Association. “Because of him, these youth’s memories have been brighter, their college accounts have larger balances, and the American Royal Board, staff, and volunteers have felt an indescribable amount of support.” It’s impossible to try and capture all that a person like Neil Orth has done in a 50-year career in one article. Beyond the awards — even being honored with his portrait in the Saddle & Sirloin gallery — one quote from a nomination letter really gets to the heart of the matter of the legacy Orth will leave behind when he retires this year. “Even with all these prestigious accomplishments the real measure of his success is the person he is,” wrote

auctioneer James M. Birdwell. “He is a friend to all, young or old, beginning or established, any breed or color, rich or poor, he will know you. His smiling friendly demeanor is contagious along with his encouragement and his congratulations for a job well done is priceless. All these characteristics coupled with a true desire and willingness to serve the industry set him apart and identifies him truly as the professional of the professionals.” What comes next? Orth plans to spend a lot of time with grandchildren and travel with his wife, Diane, to revisit some of the places he’s been along the way. There is the family farm still in Illinois and other places he’s been in his life where he’d like to do some of the things he didn’t have time for back in the day. One thing is for sure, wherever he goes, Neil Orth will have many friends very happy to see him. He might even go to an auction sometime along the way.

ADVENTURES TO JUNIOR NATIONAL! It’s been months (and even years) in the making preparing for this moment, from choosing the best genetics and feed programs, to fine tuning the cookoff recipes and team sales scripts, ready or not it’s Georgia or bust! The cattle are clipped, the bags are packed show day prep plans are in place…. and now, it’s time to load it! Four families volunteered to journal their experience. For those of you that were there this year, you’ll find the sympathy and the humor in many of their moments, for those of you that missed out, we have no doubt you’ll be making plans to join us next year in Grand Island! The Leifeste Family, Cameron, Texas Alan, Samantha, Mason, Shawn & Landree Our family is ready for a great week in Georgia! The trip to the Junior National Show has been our family’s vacation for the last several years. None of our family had ever been to the Peach State, so we were really looking forward to the trip. We were hoping for a fairly uneventful trip and for the most part, it was. We took I-20 East pretty much all the way through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and then to Georgia. We made it safe and sound, however, there were a few hiccups along the way. I mean is it even a trip to Junior National without a little bit of stress and excitement? The days leading up to the trip were full of lots of errand running and preparation for the 15-hour trip. We thought we had it all worked out until Mason discovered the AC in our truck was out. So, when no dealership could fix it before July, it was time to clean up the old Dodge with over 300,000 miles (that rarely leaves the county, let alone our side of the country)!! Shortly after a minor nervous breakdown and a call from my dad, a service manager at our county dealership saved the day (and found a bad tire, too). Shout out to Cameron Tire and Alpha One Chevy Dealership in Rockdale for taking care of us! We won’t ever forget that, I promise. The kids packed and bedded the trailer, loaded feed and tack, washed all the cattle and did last minute clipping that needed done. Any idea how many sacks of feed it takes for 7 head for 7 days? Ask Mason, he had to load every single one of them in the nose of the trailer! Being gone a week, meant there was lots to do around the ranch before we headed out, too. We were late to bed and early to rise to get luggage and cattle loaded to head out of the gate by 4:30 a.m. Of course, Alan drove, kids slept, and I sat and fretted about what all I forgot or overlooked for the first couple hours. Alan said by the amount of luggage he loaded there was no way I forgot a darn thing! We traveled solo since our truck troubles put us behind schedule and most of our friends were already on the road. The drive was pretty uneventful and gorgeous through Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. As it turns out, our route sent us right through the remnants of Tropical Storm Claudette, dumping lots of rain along our route. When it was my turn to drive, of course we were right in the heart of it. White knuckles took us through Jackson, Meridian and Montgomery. 22

Wore smooth out Mason getting in a little driving time We arrived at the fairgrounds in Perry, Georgia probably around 9:30 that night. Never were we so glad to get out of that truck or the cattle off the trailer. The weather in Perry was unbelievable. We couldn’t have ordered it any better or more pleasant. Pretty sure we were planning for unbearable heat and humidity, but that wasn’t the case — most mornings, we wore jackets. By the time we unloaded and got everything set up it was midnight on Sunday. The next couple days were busy and fun: getting checked in, catching up with friends, state meetings, group pictures and opening ceremonies! Kids kicked off their week competing in the quiz bowl, attending the leadership session and Landree was thrilled for a meet and greet with the Queen. By Wednesday, the week was in full swing as the leadership sessions continued, along with the Sullivan Supply Stock Show U Clinic, Team Sales (my kids’ favorite) and Team Fitting. Shawn and his team from Texas took home Champion Intermediate Team! Mason competed with Missouri/Kansas friends in a tough senior division, and young Landree teamed up with the Bertsche kids (using glue quite heavily, I might add) in the junior division. Everyone had a ball! After several cans of Hocus Pocus later, we ended the day with a fun night skating, bowling and playing mini golf at Rigby’s. Showmanship Day was probably the most stressful day for our family. Mason was named Intermediate Champion, Shawn was 5th overall junior, and Landree got ring experience putting her one step closer to making the cut next year. The highlight of the afternoon was the fishing tournament. We brought as much fishing gear as we did tack. They didn’t catch much but had the best time with friends! Thursday’s Bred and Owned Show ended Mason with a class winner and a reserve division heifer honors. And, Landree found out she was a member of the reserve champion junior sales team, so the kids had plenty to celebrate. The Owned Show ended with another class winner and a successful showring debut for Landree with a class win and was in the hunt for the division. On Saturday, we loaded up and pulled out of fairgrounds at 7:30, making for a long drive home. After several driver switches, and even giving Mason some windshield time pulling the trailer, we pulled into our house at about 11:00 pm. We knew we didn’t have the string of cattle good enough to take home any banners, so this year we focused on winning classes, buckles and excelling in the contests. The Georgia National Fairgrounds were beautiful, one of the prettiest facilities we’ve ever been too. The weather and good friends made it that much more enjoyable! We would like to thank everyone associated with putting on the show. So many months of planning go into an event of this magnitude and our family says “THANK YOU!” to all involved!!
The two days before we left were spent getting animals ready and clipped up for the trip! We have all the pastures and cows checked and situated for us to be gone. This week has gotten up to 105⁰F in Kansas. By 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, we finally left Schrader Ranch for Perry, GA. It’s a projected 14 hours to Nick Williams’ layover
Loaded up and ready to head out bright and early! destination in Alabama! We made 4 stops along the way, trying to keep all truck and trailer passengers cool and comfortable. We appreciated some cloud cover along the way. Before you knew it, the St. Louis Arches are in the rear view and were soon enjoying the beautiful scenery in the Tennessee Valley. As the sun began to set, we made it to our fourth stop of the day in Falkville, AL to fuel up before our final resting point for the day at the Williams’ Farm in Bremen, AL. Gail and Albert Cone’s hospitality was unmatched. The cattle settled in with water
feed, and a good night’s rest before finishing the trip to Perry tomorrow evening. Friday was a rest day for cattle. It felt great to have all morning to rest as we got them cleaned up and caught up from the first part of the trip. We also had the chance to look around at Cold Springs and Dodge City, Alabama. Just before 5:00 p.m. we are Perry-bound!! The Williams family deserves special thanks for allowing us to use their facility and giving us a great assistance in navigating our route to Georgia! Just before midnight we have made it to the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, Georgia and cattle would soon be into tie-outs and ready for the week. continued on page 30

Any Future With A Plan Is A Brighter Future
Support breed development, research and education
ore than two decades ago, Dr. Harlan Ritchie, the esteemed Michigan State University professor widely regarded as the leader in beef ’s composition, size, and growth transformation, challenged U.S. beef breed associations to avoid obsoletion by reinventing themselves. Ritchie predicted irrelevance unless breed associations’ board of directors and membership began to think differently. Research funding was drying up or changing direction. Simultaneously, the science was evolving that had the potential to revolutionize seedstock production. Fast forward and it’s safe to say every major breed association stepped up and accepted the challenge and today are making unparalleled genetic progress. Possibly an even greater benefit by challenging associations to think differently, stakeholders began to holistically scrutinize
fiduciary tools such as the American Charolais Foundation to continue to support youth leadership, breed development, research, and education. The tax exempt benefits encourage charitable contributions including gifts of money, bequest in wills or trusts, direct IRA distribution, life insurance, retirement plan beneficiary and charitable remainder and charitable lead trust. On a personal note, I am humbled to receive the prestigious 2021 Saddle & Sirloin Award. As most of you know, an original portrait is commissioned and the inductee will join approximately 350 previous Saddle & Sirloin award winners when the portrait is officially unveiled in the Livestock Industry’s Hall of Fame, during the North American International Livestock Exposition, November 14, 2021 in Louisville, Kentucky.
I am filled with gratitude in being inducted into the 2021 Saddle & Sirloin Hall of Fame. The opportunity to continue making a contribution to youth leadership through the American Charolais Foundation is even more humbling. organizational structures and due diligence to answer the question, “is this beneficial to the beef industry, not just the breed association?” Rather than outsourcing, associations hired scientists and established incredibly fruitful working relationships with intellectual power. The result was the development of batteries of genetic selection tools and the potential to improve phenotype and genotype in every breed. Association members were encouraged to “buy in” to a new way of thinking about their breed associations. Members were no longer simply a member of a pedigree warehouse. Breed associations established foundations with specific goals and objectives and members were encouraged to financially support. The American Charolais Foundation (ACF) was launched in the fall of 2015. In 2017, ACF was recognized as a Section 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Contributions to the foundation qualify as tax charitable deductions. The Foundation is a funding source to enhance opportunities for more than 3,000 junior and active AICA members. In addition to youth leadership, funds are used to support breed development, research and education. The mission statement aptly describes the important role of ACF, “Our mission is to provide research, development and education activities benefiting the beef cattle industry and the Charolais breed.” The future of beef breed associations will rely on valuable
The nomination process and all related events are selfsupporting. All funds generated through fundraising efforts for the commissioned portrait and induction events are being collected in the American Charolais Foundation. Once all the portrait commission and award induction expenses have been paid, the balance will remain in ACF to establish the J. Neil Orth Leadership Award, recognizing outstanding national youth leadership. As a young man working to make his way in the livestock industry, I have been so fortunate to have a long list of mentors and educators that possibly saw more in me than I saw in myself. But the overarching message each and every one instilled in me is the importance of passing it on. Throughout my career, mentoring young men and women with a new passion for carving out a career in the livestock industry has been inordinately more important to me. I am filled with gratitude in being inducted into the 2021 Saddle & Sirloin Hall of Fame. The opportunity to continue making a contribution to youth leadership through the American Charolais Foundation is even more humbling.

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.

Atlanta based cousins The first couple days in Perry, Weston kept himself busy with the Junior Board putting together bags and check-in items for the week ahead as Josi, Laci and Spencer worked on the animals. A special visit during check-in from our Atlanta-based cousins Kendal and Katy Clawson with their spouses Caroline and Corey made for a fun time catching up! Weston enjoyed every moment of his first Opening Ceremonies as a Junior Board member followed by a day of speeches, interviews and team fitting and sales contests. (It is always a fun time to compete alongside our friends Shade and Breeze Bunker, as well as, Maguire and Maddy Rohr!) Following showmanship day, we all enjoyed an evening fishing to wind down before the Bred & Owned shows, conference awards and banquet the next day. It was our first peanuts and Coke experience, which was pretty cool! We wrapped up the week with the Owned Show. By 4:00 a.m. on Saturday, we are on the road for home after an awesome week in Perry. A different route home took us through Atlanta (as we aim to beat morning rush hour) and continue through Chattanooga. By 1:00 a.m. Sunday, we are officially back home at the Schrader Ranch!! What a great week to catch up with friends across the country! Thank you to the Southern Tradition Planning Committee for the amazing Southern Hospitality!
The Downey Family, Hope, Indiana Nathan, Sheila, Logan & Eli
A U G U S T 2021
Nathan took the day off and together with the boys, they baled a field of hay, washed all the show calves, cleaned out the show box, loaded the trailer “like a Tetris game,” and were ready to hit the road by 5 p.m. on Friday. It took us another two hours to pack clothes, cook-off supplies, finish 4-H projects, and make last minute arrangements with our family. This year has been crazy; Our county fair moved up a week and six of our 4-H Projects are due on Monday the 21st (while we’re in Georgia!) Thankfully Grandma Theresa and Grandma & Grandpa Glunt volunteered to check-in projects for us! We pulled south out of the driveway, heifers loaded and sweat running down our backs, at 7 p.m. At 7:20 p.m., we pulled back in our driveway. Both boys forgot their show belts and khaki shorts for cook-off contest outfits. We finally got to the Boonville Downey’s around 10:00 p.m. Using cell phone flashlights, we loaded Allydale’s equipment on the trailer. Our two heifers made themselves at home in her barn and helped themselves to her hay while we worked. Everybody was in bed, dreaming of all the fun we’re about to have, by 11 p.m. On Saturday, Aunt Ann had a scrambled eggs, biscuits & gravy, and coffee ready by 6:30 a.m. We filled our bellies, loaded the heifers, and the five of us were back on the road again; this time headed southeast to Perry. Cue “East Bound and Down” by Jerry Reid. It didn’t take "East Bound and Down" long to break out the kettle corn, white cheddar cheese crackers, trail mix with extra dates, or the water in the cab. That’s not a combination we typically eat, but when you’re stuck in a truck cab on the way to a cattle show, all normal eating habits go out the window. We kept ourselves entertained by three rounds of the License Plate Alphabet Game and Name that 90’s Country Song. It’s hard to beat Nathan at that game although each time we play, the young ‘uns get better. We stopped in Tennessee for some fuel, some Benadryl, and some Moxie rescue food. The fuel was for the truck. The Arby’s was to curb the hangry in the truck and the Benadryl was for Elijah’s poison ivy itching that was out of control. Logan crawled up in the neck to rescue “Moxie” Elijah’s stuffed
dog, and Army, the stuffed armadillo. Are there real armadillos in Georgia? We rolled across the Alabama state line singing with Lynard Skynard and arguing over “Heads Up” who’s elbow was in who’s space. The poison ivy itching had subsided and the back row was engaged in a rousing game of “Heads Up.” According to GPS, we should be rolling into Georgia before 7 p.m. tonight. Woohoo – let the fun begin!
The Rohr Family, Elbert Colorado Mitch, Lea, Maddy & Maguire
Maguire finished loading the trailer Thursday afternoon and we made sure everything was hooked-up and ready to go for the morning. The night before we leave our cattle get drenched with Vita Charge Drench which helps with digestive health, eating and drinking during stress and recovery. With just over 24 hours ahead of us, our plan was to drive east to Salina, Kan., down through Oklahoma and then through Northeast Texas and layover in Grand Saline. On Friday we would continue through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and eventually Georgia. We chose this route because out layover spot Thursday night was with a longtime friend who works at Gabriel Ranch in Grand Saline, Texas. On the morning of June 18th, we loaded the cattle and left around 4 a.m. and it was only about 55 degrees. Within the first 5 hours of the trip, we blew a trailer tire. Fortunately, Maguire changed it quickly and we were back on the road. We hit traffic in Oklahoma which continued until we were on the east side of Dallas, extending our trip about 3 hours. Just before we got to Grand Saline, we stopped at a Buc-ees in Terrell, Texas. This was by far our favorite stop as we had heard about the convenience store/gas station, but had never been to one. It was the Disney Land of gas stations. Shortly after we pulled into the gorgeous Gabriel Ranch. We unloaded the cattle and gave all of them Sure Champ Climate Control paste helping them adjust to the humidity and heat, as well as increase appetite. They all ate and we left them in their pens for the night. On Friday morning, we left around 6 a.m. In Arcadia, Louisiana we blew a tire on the dually of the truck. Once again, Maguire changed it and we continued to Perry. One of our favorite towns we drove through was Selma, Alabama because of the historical significance from the civil rights movement. We pulled into the fairgrounds in Perry around 7 p.m. and set the cattle up at tie-outs. They received another dose of Sure Champ Climate Control paste there after they ate. The trip was fairly uneventful, but hard on the cattle and the VitaFerm products helped keep them feeling good, eating and drinking. We continued to give them Vita Charge Drench
throughout the week as needed as well as Vita Charge Liquid Boost in their water to keep them hydrated. We had a blast throughout the week and enjoyed participating in various contests. Highlights of the week included winning Reserve Senior Fitting team with Weston Schrader and Shade Bunker, making the finals in Senior showmanship and having Reserve Division 4 in the Bred & Owned Heifer show. We could not be more thankful for everyone who helped us throughout the week and on show days. We are also so thankful to Mason Runft for awarding us the 2021 Jordan Mack Junior Herdsman award at the end of the week. It was such an honor to win it together because we truly are a team and couldn’t do this without each other. My dad always says, ‘we win as a family and lose as a family.’ We took a different route home to avoid the Dallas traffic. We went North through Tennessee, Western Kentucky, to St. Louis, and then stopped for the night in Mexico, Missouri at Sydenstricker Angus. We finished the trip on Sunday, June 27th heading West through Kansas and into Colorado.

AMERICAN-INTERNATIONAL JUNIOR CHAROLAIS ASSOCIATION
Molly Smith, AIJCA President 2021-22
Chase Your Dreams Ignite your heart and push your limits
owdy y’all! For the ones who may not know me, my name is Molly Smith. Being on the Charolais Board has played an enormous impact on who I am, and I am excited to say that I am the newly elected 2021-2022 AIJCA President. I am the daughter of Doris and Roger Smith, originally from Lockhart, Texas but am currently attending Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas where I am majoring in Animal Science and plan to graduate in December 2021. After my completion of my Bachelor’s degree I hope to continue my education into a Masters and then on into a Ph.D. In addition to adding Junior National, I am interning at TransOva Genetics where I have been exposed to reproductive technologies for breeders looking to advance and extend superior genetics.
Most people do not grasp the concept that to achieve goals and reach expectations, you have to work as hard, or even harder, than your competitor. Working 110% every time at everything you set out to do will greatly increase your chances of making your dreams a reality. When life’s obstacles stand in our way, we stop in our tracks. We come to the false realization that it is either too difficult or even impossible to be able to do something. We only set ourselves back from triumphing. But when we keep persisting, and set our expectations higher, we can do anything we set our minds to. The only factor that keeps us separate from our goals are our choices. We make the choice to be normal,
“The only factor that keeps us separate from our goals are our choices... Life is what YOU make of it, so make it count!” I hope this past summer’s Junior National was filled with lots of new memories and friends, whether it be the first one you have attended or your tenth. Years later you may not remember who won what award at the show but the memories that you created will stick with you. I want to give a big thank you to the Southeast juniors and adults, who put a lot of time and effort into making this past summer a great one. I would also like to commend the 2020-2021 AIJCA President, Caitlin Jedlicka, and the rest of the past Junior Board on a job well done. The dedication and hard work is very much appreciated and has not gone unnoticed. Thank you again! I know everyone has, at some point in their life, aspired to become something great. We have all had ambitions to set out and accomplish spectacular goals. We have all had intentions to be the best at what we can do. We have all had dreams to expand and explore beyond our own expectations, I know I have. Dreams are not merely visions that occur when we sleep. The dreams that I want to elaborate on are the ones that ignite our hearts and encourage us to push our limits. 32

ordinary, and the same as everyone else. We can also make the choice to stand out and be different, as well. Most people would agree that it is easier to live your life as an individual because we do not have to adapt to changing ideals set by society. Life is what YOU make of it, so make it count! Being a member of this organization has taught me to chase my dreams and reach my fullest potential. It has also shown me the importance of setting the bar higher with every step in life we take. Whether you set the goal to join the Junior Board or create a career in an industry of your choice, you have to take the opportunity to get there. Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” All throughout this next year I hope to see everybody at different Charolais events and shows, but I am most excited about the 2022 Junior National in Grand Island, Nebraska. I hope to see new and old faces, hopefully we as Board Members have inspired some of you all to take a chance and join us as new Board Members.

his year’s show dedicatee is the definition of giving and passion for the Charolais industry. Whether it is lending a helping hand to someone in his community or offering children the opportunity to show their first 4-H or FFA project, he has always been there. Silas Maxwell’s involvement in the cattle industry and the Charolais breed has been second to none in Tennessee and he does not plan to stop being a part of it anytime soon. Silas has been active within the cattle industry and specifically raised Charolais for over fifty years, complementing a lifetime of involvement in agriculture. Growing up in Tennessee, Silas attended Baxter Seminary High School and later received his degree in animal science from the University of Tennessee. After serving two years in the United States Army, Silas came home with a renewed desire to make a change. Wanting to start something new is the reason Silas chose Charolais back in 1970. “I wanted something different, Silas said. “There weren’t many in the area, and I wanted that to change.” This desire for change is what propelled him to leave his mark on the breed a big way. Silas’ bull, Tennessee Cherokee 108, set performance marks within the breed including the highest weaning weight and yearling weight at the time. He went on to raise many respected dams as well as a string of show cattle that competed all across the country. In addition to leaving his mark on the genetic potential of the breed, Silas has also left his mark on the boards and committees serving the cattle industry in Tennessee. This included service in many leadership positions like his position as the area director of the AICA for the state of Tennessee and the AICA Executive Committee. Silas served on the AICA Junior Council for many years, being Chairman for 3 years. He was also the charter member of the Tennessee Charolais Association. One of his proudest accomplishments was his role as the founder of the Appalachian Classic Charolais Sale, which still takes place today. Silas has dedicated much of his time to the Charolais industry both in and out of the show ring. Alongside his late wife Jewell Maxwell, his children Scott and Annette showed cattle while they were growing up and this enthusiasm has since been passed on to his grandchildren. Outside of his family, Silas also had other individuals that showed for him throughout the years, and he shared remarkable stories about their experiences including stories about the residents of a local children’s home. This home was established for children who came from disadvantaged families and after speaking with the director

of the facility, Silas decided that he wanted to help provide a meaningful activity for the children and shed a positive light in their otherwise tough lives. He invited them to show his cattle and they were kept at the barn of the children’s home. He specifically remembers one little girl he worked with who tried to run away from the children’s home. The directors looked and looked and eventually found her in the barn nestled up with her calf. The girl explained that she went to her calf because it was the only thing in her life that “understood her and knew her.” The success these children found in the show ring often carried over into their daily lives even years after they grew up and moved on. He encountered another showman he had worked with from the facility at the local grocery store one day where she was working. After catching up about her old show times, she said that she had saved up the money she earned from showing and was using it to help go to college in the fall. One of Silas’ most remarkable stories about showing cattle he found closer to home. His second wife Arleen is the grandmother of two adopted children, one of which has autism. This little girl also loved the show ring and when they went to the fair, she never wanted to leave! Seeing the improvements, he could help make to people’s lives and doing it through the Charolais cattle he loves is what keeps him in the industry. Even though many of his showman have grown up and moved on, he continues to make an impact with FFA members like Gracie Weiberg who is currently serving as one of the AIJCA board members. Gracie got her start into the Charolais breed by working with Silas through her local Daniel Boone FFA and is one of several Daniel Boone FFA members attending the Junior National in Georgia this summer. Silas also supports members from the Chuckey Doak FFA Chapter. Youth and the use of livestock to teach the important life lessons is a part of who Silas is and is something that he values. He enjoys having young children in the show barn because it teaches them important things they need to know for the rest of their lives. Showing teaches kids how to work diligently, how to take responsibility, and most importantly that hard work pays off. When kids show, they have incentive to do big things in their lives and it makes them set goals for themselves for anything else they want to do in the future. Silas is a great asset to the cattle industry and the Charolais breed is lucky to have him. The way Silas sees it, he is lucky to be a part of the industry too. “I love it. It is in me and it is what I want to do. I enjoy the people and it is wonderful to see what the breed can do.”

ooted deep in Southern Louisiana, you will find an array of things: the smell of Cajun cuisine, the accents of those around you, and some good ‘ole hospitality. What’s more: the Romeros - a family who has spent decades raising Charolais, advancing the mission of the AIJCA, and making friends with breeders across the Nation. The Romero’s Charolais Herd started after Craig and Pamela were married in 1984. While Craig grew up raising Charolais and Pamela grew up raising Angus, the two decided the breed of cattle was not most important; rather, it was the lessons their children would learn in the cattle industry that ultimately mattered. Together, they chose the Charolais breed and never looked back. After being involved in the breed on the production scale, they chose to get their children involved in showing cattle. This decision would become a family passion that has taken them to many places and helped them make many friends. Their children - Nicholas, Hannah, Jacob, Sarah, Bethany, Danielle, and Isaac - were involved in many ways, from attending and competing in shows to helping with daily chores. After traveling to the local shows for a few years, the family decided to attend their first AIJCA Junior National in Kearney, Nebraska in 1996. “I remember thinking ‘we may not know what we are doing,’” Pamela chuckled. “We never missed a Junior National after that and continued improving.” As their children reached their teenage years, the family recognized the many opportunities their peers did not enjoy by being involved within the Charolais industry. Hannah and Sarah both took their AIJCA experience to the next level by serving the membership and being elected to the Junior Board. “AIJCA did more for our children growing up than any of the sports, clubs, or other school activities that they were involved in,” Craig said. The Romeros quickly became known for a variety of Junior National memories including their pit for cooking their Cajun spice for all attendees, the ruckus the boys caused, and the distractions by the Barbies (as referenced by Craig and Pamela.) Reflecting on those memories brought forgotten ones to the forefront. Since the children never showed at the same time, they never could make a full team for the fitting contest. So Isaac would take it upon himself to find other teams to join, of which Isaac was always the only out-of-state member. When one of those teams won, Isaac was asked: “Why did they let you join their team and not let another person from their state on?” He immediately replied, “Because they know I’m good.” Other fond memories involved baby powder flying
everywhere and barn antics that had given the boys their reputation of stirring the crowd. Isaac would bring a plastic spider on a string and dangle on those that walked below, causing screams throughout the barns. And while at the 2005 Junior National in Kansas, a water balloon fight broke out so massive that no one in the barn was safe from becoming a target. With the Romeros located in Louisiana, Junior Nationals meant road trips every summer. And with seven children and a trailer full of cattle, those trips were no easy task - especially since there were no other Louisiana families to help lighten the load. So it became customary for the girls to fly and the boys to make the long haul with the cattle, which always prompted the boys to comment: “How nice it must be to show up and have all the hard work done.” “On the way to the 2009 Junior National in Sacramento, we made sure to check over every part of our truck and trailer knowing it would be a long haul. Not too far outside of Tulsa, we noticed one of our back tires rolling past us. We forgot to put the lug nuts back on,” Craig laughed. The Romero children were known to bring bags to extend their vacations to other families’ Charolais operations, connecting them with other breeders across the nation. They would come home with new friends and different perspectives on beef production throughout the United States. The family achieved much success in the showring, but the most memorable was Hannah winning 2001-2002 AICA Show Heifer of the Year with Paynes Loretta 3L during her last year as a junior member. Describing the organization as their family away from family, Craig and Pamela said: “The AIJCA did more for our children than we ever could. The AIJCA connected everyone in a way that there aren’t any words for.” The AIJCA membership felt the same and awarded the Romero family as the AIJCA Family of the Year in 2010. “The association represents the way we wanted to raise our children. There’s structure. You’re not always going to win everything, so you need to know how to lose as gracefully as you learn how to win. You get along with everyone and it feels like family,” Craig stated. In 2018, the Romeros experienced a life-changing event when Isaac died in an automotive accident. They are grateful that Isaac left a positive impact on those he encountered especially all the AIJCA members he touched with his hard work, generosity, and hospitality. The Romeros are looking forward to the next generation of Charolais juniors in the show ring and continuing Isaac’s legacy. With many of their grandchildren attending the 2021 AIJCA Junior National in Perry, it is only the beginning.

“The worst you are going to do is learn something and the best is that you are going to do is grow.” This is perhaps one of the most profound quotes spoken in the hours of interview footage shot during the course of Junior National. Learning and growing are both huge parts of what the Charolais Association hopes their juniors accomplish throughout their involvement in the industry and Mason Runft of Scandia, Kansas has done exactly that for the past 22 years. Runft is this year’s recipient of the outstanding senior award and has been attending Junior Nationals since he was a baby. Like many families, the Junior National tradition becomes a yearly summer vacation and the chance to make friends with others from across the country. Even more impressive than his long-standing tradition of attendance is a pair of honors he received in his last two years. His first, the Jordan Mack Memorial Herdsman of the Year in 2020, and this year, the Chad Clark Memorial Outstanding Senior Member. “I was not expecting this [outstanding senior] award,” said Runft. “It is kind of unbelievable that they both happened. There isn’t anything that could top that, it is the stuff you dream about.” His passion for the industry stems from the time he has spent with his family coming to Junior Nationals and the incredible people and mentors he has met along the way. “Now it is my turn,” said Runft. “I want to be that person for someone else. Being a leader for other kids is what I am passionate about.” This passion is evident watching Runft in the barns where he spends time encouraging younger members and sharing his knowledge of Charolais cattle. His motto of learning and growing has allowed him to try out various activities like Quiz Bowl and has given him the chance to step outside of his comfort zone. “Don’t look back and wish you had done something. Go do it, go try.” Words of wisdom from a leader that has made his mark not with awards but rather with integrity and commitment to the Charolais industry. A role model we can all learn and grow from.

Sitting side-by-side in rocking chairs on our makeshift video set, the porch at the fairground’s restaurant, it was hard not to think of these two girls as sisters. With matching ponytails, show shirts, and upbeat personalities, it is easy to see why Breeze Bunker and Josi Schrader are best friends that are often mistaken for siblings. Bunker and Schrader were selected as outstanding junior members at the 2021 Charolais Junior National, an honor previous received by their older siblings, Shade Bunker and Weston Schrader. This is the first time in the history of the association that more than one member has received this honor and when the announcement was made, the girls were predictably sitting side-by-side and embraced immediately for a hug. “It is way more fun to do this with your best friend than to do it by yourself,” Schrader said. “Yeah, it was ten times cooler that it was both of us,” Bunker added. Both of these girls have been involved with Charolais since they were born, following in long standing family traditions started by their parents and grandparents. They began showing at Junior Nationals seven years ago but say their friendship stretches back longer than that. “We met at Junior National when we were really little,” Bunker said. “And we have been best friends ever since.” “From our first Junior National, we have been inseparable” Schrader added with a laugh. “People always get us confused on who is who or they think we are sisters.” Aside from being named as outstanding junior members, another highlight for the girls was the showmanship competition. Bunker was named reserve in the intermediate division with her older sister being name reserve showman in the senior division and Schrader took fifth in the intermediate division with her older brother also taking fifth place. Even though the week was drawing to a close, the girls were looking ahead to the future and anticipating the next time they would see one another at the American Royal in the fall. A friendship forged by common interests in the cattle industry and one that is sure to stand the test of time. 58

he trip to peach country was one for the books as another AIJCA Junior National has come and gone. This one was especially memorable for one individual as she passed down the President’s gavel to the next board member who would be taking the title of President. Caitlin Jedlicka can’t remember the first time she was around a Charolais but knows it was early on and has been involved ever since. She has been competing since her first Charolais contest in 2006 at only five, Caitlin’s Charolais show career began when she was nine with her heifer PNY Cigars Bud 46P. While she can’t tell you about her first AIJCA Junior National, she can tell you about the moment she knew she would run for the AIJCA Junior Board. She realized the value of the work they were doing for the association at major breed activities and Junior events. Caitlin had a passion for agriculture and Charolais cattle that pushed her to pursue the blue jacket and give back to the association “I looked up to the Junior Board as role models and followed them around at every show. I wanted to learn everything they had to teach me,” she commented Caitlin has held the positions of At-Large Director, Area 6 Director, Secretary, President and now Ex-Officio, with President being her favorite position held. It prepared Caitlin for her future in many ways. Between her bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Communications and being President, she was able 62
A U G U S T 2021
to learn a thing or two about communication with a team and an association. “I was not only taught how to be an effective public speaker, but also how to manage social media accounts, how to manage a team of individuals, and work closely with those that are above you to ensure that a project gets competed the right way,” Caitlin said. Being President comes with its responsibilities but there also comes a large amount of enjoyment. One of Caitlin’s favorite memories as President was meeting and serving the Junior members. “Leading this board and association was the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced. Getting to see the juniors grow and learn throughout the year made it the best year I could have asked for.” When asked why others should run for the board, Caitlin responded, “run for the board if you are looking to better yourself while serving an industry built to give its’ youth opportunities to grow. The experience, connections, and the opportunities that come from being a part of the junior board can’t be replicated anywhere else.” As Cailtin reflects on her year as AIJCA Junior Board President, she shared a quote that she lives by: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt.

wo individuals who share so many similarities yet so many differences, sit ringside as they cheer on friends that have become family inside the ring. They are tired, sweaty, and their clothes covered in shavings from a long day of getting cattle ready. Their parents join them, thinking nothing of it, a voice comes on the loudspeaker talking about this year’s Herdsman of the Year. Instantly, tears begin to flow down Lea Rohr’s face, Maguire and Maddy squeeze one another fiercely. Parents’ faces filled with pride as their twin son and daughter are recognized as the 2021 Herdsmen of the Year. Coming from an Angus operation located in Elbert, Colorado, Maguire began exhibiting Angus cattle as a young seven-year-old boy. Though being twins, Maddy wanted to be different from her brother. She decided she was going to go the opposite route; in result she fell in love with the ‘white cows.’ This came to no surprise since the twins’ grandfather, Maurice Rohr, owns the pioneer Smoky Hill Charolais operation that’s started in 1961 and is in Hays, Kansas. At eight
years old, Maurice gave a Charolais heifer to the each of them, sparking their passion for the Charolais breed. “We immediately loved the Charolais Association and began to build our Charolais herd, with the foundation of our grandpa’s genetics,” Maddy states. Maguire and Maddy began competing at the Junior National and other Roll of Excellence shows, every year. Since a young age, Maguire was always the outgoing social kid who talked to everyone and wanted to be a part of everything. Maddy on the other hand, a quiet introvert that kept her head down while getting the job done. However, their differences did not stop them from pursuing their passion for the Charolais breed. Maddy, an agriculture communications major at Kansas State University, advocates for the breed through various communication outlets while being heavily involved in organizations across campus. She also enjoys barrel racing in both the timed event and judged event with cattle involved. Maguire attends Hutchinson Community College where there are cows and good company. He is constantly
fitting and clipping cattle, while traveling to various shows across the nation. Maguire’s favorite part is teaching and educating young people of the breed and what the industry has to offer. This led him to become an AIJCA Board member. He says, “the best part of being on the board, is being able to work with the junior’s that will eventually become the future of the Charolais breed.” The Rohr twins have full intentions to continue being highly involved with the breed through raising and exhibiting Charolais cattle. “It’s so neat that we can carry on our grandfather’s legacy as a family, while having our hard work and determination recognized by fellow Charolais members,” Maddy states. They are both honored to be recognized for such a meaningful award that their own role models have received previously. Maguire says, “Instant pride comes to mind knowing that hard work pays off and that our passion for the Charolais breed has impacted those around us. We are thankful to be a part of this association that shaped us into who we are today.”

AICA MEMBERSHIP MANHATTAN, Kan. — The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) presented Lee Leachman, Fort Collins, Colo., a BIF Continuing Service Award June 23 during the group’s annual meeting and symposium in Des Moines, Iowa. Continuing Service Award winners have made major contributions to the BIF organization. This includes serving on the board of directors, speaking at BIF symposia, working on BIF guidelines and other behind-the-scenes activities. As BIF is a volunteer organization, it is this contribution of time and passion for the beef cattle industry that moves BIF forward. Leachman is the managing partner of Leachman Cattle of Colorado (LCoC), headquartered near Fort Collins. Additionally, Leachman served as the 2018-2019 BIF President. Leachman sells more than 2,500 bulls annually and works with a network of more than 40 cooperating herds. He has built a program based on improved feed efficiency, quality, productivity and carcass value that increase profit for the industry. He also started $Profit, a private genetic evaluation that calculates and provides EPDs and selection indexes on more than 1.5 million cattle in that database. “Lee is a trailblazer and early adopter of advanced technologies,” says Donnell Brown, Throckmorton, Texas, who presented the award. “He continues working hard to make the beef industry the best it can be, you can bet he will continue to revolutionize the beef industry.” MANHATTAN, Kan. — The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) presented Jane Parish, Verona, Miss., its Continuing Service Award June 23 during the group’s annual meeting and symposium in Des Moines, Iowa. Continuing Service Award winners have made major contributions to the BIF organization. This includes serving on the board of directors, speaking at BIF symposia, working on BIF guidelines and other behind-the-scenes activities. As BIF is a volunteer organization, it is this contribution of time and passion for the beef cattle industry that moves BIF forward. Parish currently serves as department head for the North Mississippi Research and Extension Center in Verona, Miss., and interim head for the Mississippi State University (MSU) Department of Animal and Dairy Sciences. She served as BIF executive director for five years. Applied research has been the theme and center for much of Parish’s career as a professor and extension professional at MSU. Through her tenure, she has proven tremendous breadth and diversity in her approach to helping producers be more successful, authoring research papers ranging from reproduction, genetics, cattle management, forage utilization as well as the promotion and administration aimed at the future of successful extension programming. “Just like most successful people, Jane has more to her life than just work,” says Marty Ropp, former BIF president, who presented the award. “Her husband, Jimmy Ray, along with their children, Beau and Haley, help keep everything else about life in perspective.” 70
