VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS The American Charolais Foundation

Expanding Our Reach

A

couple of decades ago, Dr. Harlan Ritchie cautioned breed associations to stay relevant. In fact, Ritchie, one of the most respected educators and industry thought leaders in modern animal agriculture went so far as to predict that, barring a paradigm operational shift, breed associations risked becoming obsolete. We lost Harlan Ritchie in 2016, but the context of his often-repeated statement was spot on and still rings true today. Breed associations could no longer hang their hats on being a pedigree warehouse. Breed associations that made progress and experienced growth had to become engaged. Today, breed associations must continually prove industry relevance. The cattle will perform or not. It is our responsibility as your breed association to aggressively pursue sound science, explore new technology and

Association foundations are not new. In fact, universities have used the 501(c)(3) designation to generate billions of dollars and use for remarkable, important academic endeavors. As an example, at the close of FY16, K-State University Foundation had managed assets of $834 million and increased more than $300 million in assets in the last five years. The K-State Foundation awarded more than $14.5 million in 2016 in scholarship dollars, made $72.2 million available to the campus, received $53 million in new planned gifts to be realized in the future and averaged raising over $150 million over the past five fiscal years. The Foundation is well on the way to reaching a goal of $1.4 billion by 2025. K-State University is just one major university whose students and academic community greatly benefit from its Foundation.

AICA members have already displayed extraordinary generosity and interest in the ACF. arm members with facts about new tools, advancing genomics and marketing. Each year brings new challenges relative to finding the financial resources to invest in more research and advancing technology, but the necessity to expand our reach is directly connected to our ability to compete as one of the five major breeds in the U.S. Land-grant universities continue to be a mainstay for industry research. Yet, in the past decade, the private sector has emerged as a valuable resource for peer-reviewed research or the development of new tools and technology. Regardless of the resource, research or emerging technology requires significant financial commitment. In the June/July, Charolais Journal, pg. 27-29, AmericanInternational Charolais Association announced the creation of the American Charolais Foundation (ACF), a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. A fund-raising vessel such as the American Charolais Foundation will be an invaluable asset to support the ongoing need to compete, support the next generation of Charolais producers and remain industry relevant. ACF funds will not be used for operational expenses. Funds like ACF are designed to function as investment opportunities and taxable offsets for donors choosing to make charitable contributions, permanently assign assets or endow a lasting legacy through a financial gift. ACF funds will be conservatively invested and earnings reinvested in the principal, directed by the ACF Board of Directors.

AICA members have already displayed extraordinary generosity and interest in the ACF. An unsolicited donation of $50,000 is a great start. Proceeds from the sale of Lots 21 and 22 in the 39th National Sale have been earmarked for the ACF. Lot 21 is a donor quality heifer and a flush consigned by Bar J, Liverpool, Texas and JVS, Sulphur, Lousiana. Lot 22 is an open heifer consigned by Hansen Farms, Turton, South Dakota. The funds from the sale of Lot 22 have been earmarked for youth and education. Your AICA is financially secure. AICA board members take their fiduciary responsibilities seriously. Their commitment to conservative and disciplined investments result in affordable fees, sound infrastructure and customer services. The American Charolais Foundation will be managed with equal fiduciary commitment. Dr. Richard Clark, American Charolais Foundation President recently said, “We have a valuable new tool that is going to become more important in the future. ACF will benefit the development of education, promotion and research. Donors can earmark contributions to a specific need. Through the generosity of Charolais breeders and others, the Association will have more ability to meet the challenges of the future.” I encourage you to read or reread the June/July Charolais Journal, “Expanding Our Reach.” Consider becoming a donor to the American Charolais Foundation.

Opportunities for Increased Profits Highlighted

at Listening & Learning Session

ew technologies and advancements that lend the opportunity for Charolais breeders to increase their profits and produce a tastier product were among highlighted topics of the American-International Charolais Association’s October Listening and Learning session held at the Noble Research Institute in Ardmore Okla. Addressing everything from new steps in genomics to innovative ways of creating more marketable beef cuts, professionals speaking to seedstock and commercial producers attending the symposium unveiled the latest tools available for adding value to beef production. Utilizing Genomics in Genetic Predictions Creating a direct path to greater profits through the use of genomics surfaced to the top of conversation as Dr. Sally Northcutt, Ph.D. and Bill Bowman addressed the group gathering for this inaugural event. “Genomics can be compared to the likes of precision agriculture,” Bowman told the crowd. “These technological advances allow us the use of data to achieve our goals and targets.” Bowman and Dr. Northcutt own Method Genetics, LLC in Saint Joseph, Mo. and serve as genetic consultants to the AICA. During their presentation, they focused on the use of genomic-enhanced Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) and encouraged producers to “hone in” on data and testing available that offers them the opportunity to make rapid progress within their herds. “One of the value pieces of the Charolais breed is your database, said Dr. Northcutt. “Phenotypic weights and measures, pedigree info and now the genomic contribution lets you compute a National Cattle Evaluation.” As the association nears the introduction of a new Single Step process that directly fits genotypes into EPDs, the duo encouraged seedstock and commercial breeders to make the most of genetic predictions to increase their profits. “Genomics are building increased accuracy for seedstock producers,” said Bowman, noting the advantages of using genomic enhanced EPDs. “It’s like having the first calf crop on that young bull.” Additionally, these advanced selection tools are providing more information to commercial cattlemen, so they can make informed decisions when selecting for traits of interest. Not only can commercial producers utilize EPDs and their rankings in bull selection, but herd technology is also becoming more readily available. “Through DNA testing we can find the genetic piece and sort out environmental nuisances,” said Dr. Northcutt. “Genomic resources can be seamlessly incorporated into the Charolais EPDs as well as the Terminal Sire Index. The AICA Terminal Sire Index (TSI) utilizes economic and management data, along with EPDs to assist in identifying profitable sires unique to individual operations. “Indexes are complicated to create, but relatively simple to

use,” said Dr. Northcutt. “The TSI gives us the opportunity to take multiple traits and boil those down into a simplified value reported in dollars. Specifically targeted to commercial bull buyers, TSI has a lot of emphasis on the post weaning feedlot growth. It is geared with the assumption that all calves go to market and females are not retained.” “As a commercial producer it’s very important to have a good understanding of EPDs and how to use them in your program,” she noted, while emphasizing the advantages percentile rankings offer when searching for a herd bull. These rankings are available on the AICA website along with search options that allow breeders to filter a search based on accuracies for the purpose of comparing animals within the population. “As a commercial bull buyer it’s important to have a multitrait approach,” she continued. “Look at your breeding program and find out what your key elements of importance are in adding profitability and your market endpoint.” “Being able to impact 80 percent of the genetic traits offers tremendous technology for commercial producers,” said Bowman, indicating that remarkable improvement can be accomplished through the use of high accuracy bulls. Bowman then addressed benefits of the new genetic opportunities to Charolais seedstock producers. “As a purebred breeder you have a head start by being able to incorporate that DNA technology into the traditional genetic evaluation - EPDs and indexes - you are used to using,” said Bowman. “You’re building increased accuracies.” Utilizing new genomic technology brings with it the opportunity for building relationships between seedstock producers and the commercial herd. “There is tremendous opportunity to tie information back to the seedstock and really prove the value of genetic benefits from the seedstock sector,” added Bowman. Both Bowman and Dr. Northcutt emphasized the AICA’s role as a leader in the development of beef cattle indexes and relayed the association’s ability to customize or put in place additional inputs detailed to individual operations. Specific to commercial cow herds, selection tools have also been developed for replacement females, using traditional benchmarks along with new genomic processes. According to Dr. Northcutt, the new genomic tools make benchmarking much more relevant. “Moving toward Single Step, you’ll see opportunities for both seedstock and commercial producers as well,” she added, noting producers will have additional tools for sorting off or “culling” the bottom end. In utilizing new genomic opportunities, Bowman cautioned the crowd not to let performance or phenotypic information fall to the wayside and encouraged breeders to send that information to help contribute to EPDs and genomic evaluation. “We’ve watched as genomic information sometimes has become a replacement for phenotypic measures and data. In

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


reality it’s exactly the opposite,” he said. “We still need the weights and carcass data. Phenotypic data becomes even more crucial than ever as the association progresses into single-step evaluation.” Dr. Northcutt presented a simple equation of Single-Step evaluation: Performance + SNP Genotypes + Traditional Pedigree = Genomic Enhanced EPDs. In concluding, the geneticists summarized the opportunities genomics provide both purebred and commercial producers with these four points: • Cattle genetic evaluation procedures provide selection tools for use in seedstock and commercial cattle • DNA tests are an additional piece of information to enhance genetic predictions • EPDs and selection index values are increasingly more accessible in the beef industry • Characterized genetics have the potential to capture market value. High Yielding Beef Carcasses Still Driving the Bottom Line After studying new ways of adding value to live cattle, Dr. Gretchen Mafi, meat sciences professor at Oklahoma State University turned the table to address the opportunities and new techniques that can add value to higher yielding Charolais and Charolais-influenced carcasses. Raising the question, “Why do we need to produce more pounds and why should we?” Dr. Mafi responded to the query by telling the group, “We’re still paid per hundredweight or on a price per pound basis and that’s how we operate. Another issue we’ve heard over the past 15 years is that our population will double by 2050 and we have to feed more people and provide quality protein sources.” Above and beyond those facts, efficiency at the packing house also plays a big role in the value of heavier carcass weights. “Overhead costs are the same at slaughter whether a plant slaughters carcasses that weigh 600 pounds versus 1,000 pounds” said Dr. Mafi. “It takes the same labor, the same equipment and the same utilization of time…so that’s important.” However, these truths came with some caution. “One thing I caution about when I say produce more pounds, is to make sure it’s an increase in cutability, not just weight,” she said. “Red meat yield is still driving the packers’ bottom line.” Dr. Mafi addressed areas in which industry research and discussions are turning toward ideas for change that may impact the value of higher yielding carcasses. Presenting slides that reflected the current use of skeletal ossification and thoracic buttons to determine carcass maturity as one of the determining factors of Quality Grades, she indicated the prospect of an industry move toward the use of dentition or the number of permanent incisors present at slaughter for determining maturity. “This could improve the grading system because there’s research out there that shows that dentition is a better predictor

than ossification,” she said, adding “Marbling accounts for the majority of variation for overall palatability and that’s what quality grades are trying to predict – overall eating satisfaction.” Changes have also been proposed for updating the Yield Grading system developed in the 1960s. “Obviously cattle have changed from the 60s,” said Dr. Mafi, noting changes not only in the type of cattle and use of genetics, but in efficiencies and ability to gain as well as shapes and deposition of fat and muscle. “There’s data out there showing that our Yield Grades really aren’t that great a predictor of overall carcass cutability or red meat yield and we’re probably not giving them enough credit because we’re still utilizing the same rib eye area and hot carcass weight adjustments. We should look at things that give cattle with higher red meat yields a little more advantage in the Yield Grade system.” She also noted that several packers are using instrument grading for both Quality and Yield Grades giving them the ability to do “an excellent job without that variation of a human person trying to grade a carcass in three to seven seconds.” She then told the crowd that as producers of cattle with higher cutability and higher red meat yield, they may have to go to the “next step” in order to claim premiums. Acknowledging approximately 80 retail programs that utilize the upper two-thirds of Choice, she said “most of the packers only give that premium if it’s CAB (Certified Angus Beef ). So as producers of other breed types I think we have to negotiate those types of programs and say, ‘Okay if our cattle meet those targets from a marbling standpoint, even though they might not meet hide color, how do we take advantage of those premiums?’.” Addressing a slide which showed very small premiums paid for Yield Grade 1s and 2s, she again questioned, “How does the producer get paid back for it?” We do still have packers that are willing to pay some premiums for red meat yield. But then you look at discounts for carcass weight. Why do we get hit so much at 1,050?” Noting a spread between Choice and Select that is growing smaller, Dr. Mafi looked at historical challenges the beef industry has faced, most of which focused on weight and size. She then presented progress in muscle profiling that is adding new value to carcasses through added cuts. Recognizing the Top Blade as the “second most tender beef cut”, she specifically noted its use as the source for the popular Flat Iron steak, and credited the Petite Tender as another “very good cut” coming from the Shoulder Tender. New cuts from the Chuck Roll include Country Style Beef Chuck Eye Ribs and the Delmonico, both taken from the Chuck Eye, and the Denver Cut coming from the Under Blade. A center cut Sirloin or Baseball Steak is also hitting the menus of top steakhouses, and in Dr. Mafi’s words, “is really good.” Producing more pounds of beef with better utilization of cuts gives Charolais “a real advantage over other breeds,” said Dr. Mafi. “We can still get quality from the marbling perspective and Quality Grade aspect, but we can increase muscle and yield, which is very important to the industry.”

H

owdy y’all! My name is Molly Smith, and I am the 18 year old daughter of Doris and Roger Smith. I currently attend Texas A&M University – Kingsville where I am majoring in Animal Science. I have known for years that my future will be in agriculture. My introduction to agriculture came from my father, who taught me, at a young age, that land and animals were valuable resources that should be cultivated to enhance our livelihood. Since then, I have taken advantage of opportunities that provided me with the tools to create the future that I see for myself. I have made an effort to immerse myself into all things agricultural so that I can achieve my dream of obtaining a Ph.D. in Animal Physiology. To further expand my knowledge of animals, I have received my Veterinary Technician Certification, and work at the Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic in Luling, Texas.

Q:

Who has been the biggest help to you throughout your show career, and who is somebody you looked up to?

A: My biggest supporter when I am showing is my dad.

Normally, it’s just the two of us when we go to shows and we like to bring a big string of cattle. I am involved with a lot of different associations and a lot of the time he is left alone to take care of the cattle, and he does a great job of doing it. He’s always there for me, whether I forgot something at the house or were dealing with the loss of a calf.

Q: If you could be any person in the world for a day who would you be and why?

A: If I could be anyone for a day I would choose to be Mother Theresa. She devoted her life to servitude and she loved Q: What are some traits that help you to be a good unconditionally in extraordinarily difficult circumstances. board member? She was an example of human love triumphing over all the A: I believe one trait that makes me a good board member sadness the world can give. is my ability to take charge in situations and ask the hard questions that allow us to think outside the box. Another Q: Why did you choose to get involved in the trait is that I am very passionate about the breed. It’s that Charolais breed over other breeds? passion that allows our board to be successful in recruiting A: Getting involved in the Charolais breed wasn’t really junior members into the AIJCA. a choice for me. My dad started out showing Charolais and passed his passion on to me. My very first show Q: What advice would you give new members on cattle heifer was a Charolais and now that I have transitioned onto how to become more involved? showing other breeds I still have a soft spot for Charolais. A: I remember when I was a new member; I was scared and intimidated by all the older members and the junior Q: If you were on a desolate island and could only board. If you are a new member, my advice is to get involved bring three things, what would they be and why? with every contest, leadership event and attend all the A: I would make sure I would have a knife handy while meetings! You may not like all the contests but the best way on the island. It has, after all, many uses. You can use it to get better at them is to practice, practice, practice. Get to to open coconuts, make spears for fishing, and crack crab know all the members in your state and don’t forget to have legs. And if the knife’s big enough, you can even use it to fun during the week. cut wood for your shelter and camp fires. I would also bring flashlight, not just any flashlight, but one of those that Q: What is your favorite thing about Christmas? aruns when you wind it up so you don’t need batteries. You A: My favorite thing about Christmas is the supper we can use it to see in the middle of the night when you’re all have every year. Our whole family gets together and eats alone. Finally, I would bring an inflatable raft with oars so I traditional Mexican food. I love eating all the good food, but can row, row, row my boat, merrily to freedom. it’s also the time when our family gets to be together and give thanks for another year well spent. 24  

Youth & Education Donation Heifer

HFCS Ms

Ember E160

| Born: 4-10-17

Sire: TR HF Mr Wrangle On 5785 ET | Dam: TR Ms Wrangler 5532C The dam of HFCS Ms Ember E160 was purchased as the American Charolais Foundation Youth & Education Fund Donation lot in the famous Thomas Ranch Dispersal in 2015. When B.J. Hansen purchased that heifer calf he told me that, “I said the first good heifer calf she has I’ll donate back to the Foundation; turns out her first calf was a good one! The AIJCA Junior National and this breed changed my life and it’s my belief that if we don’t invest in our future, we’ll have no future.” The dam of HFCS Ms Ember is a moderate framed, beautiful uddered first calf heifer. Ember’s sire is one of B.J.’s favorite HF Mustang Sally sons to date. This is his first calf crop and the quality runs deep. He’ll be a must use herd sire for many years to come at Hansen Farms. Ember herself is moderate, sound and easy on the eyes. Females like this is what he loves to keep for mama cows. This pedigree is loaded up with breed greats from WR Wrangler W601, TR Ms Wylie Fire 0761X ET, Fire Water, TR Mr Prime Plus and HF Mustang Sally. This young heifer calf has all the qualities to be a tremendous brood cow with a pedigree heritage second to none and what a great cause all the money goes to starting with the generosity of the Thomas family to B.J. Hansen and on to you!

Thank you B.J., Katie, Hudson, Gage & Remi Hansen of Hansen Farms, Turton, South Dakota!

Penny Zimmerman,

current President of American National CattleWomen by Cole Simmons

F

rom the Mid-West to the Wild West Penny Zimmerman, current President of American National CattleWomen (ANCW), has woven a passion for education into promoting the beef industry. Zimmerman’s early exposure to cattle was limited to summer visits at her grandparent’s dairy farm near Hinckley, Minnesota. She grew up just outside of Minneapolis/St. Paul and upon graduation adventured to Arizona State University to become an elementary educator. While in Tempe she met her husband Bill who had a deep connection to cattle, specifically a rich history with the Charolais breed. Bill was raised in the Midwest, and his grandparents, from Paynesville, MN, started their Charolais herd in 1969 using Litton Charolais genetics from Missouri. The two even had a few Charolais steers on rented, irrigated pasture in Arizona. “Those first few steers were quite interesting and a real learning experience for me,” Zimmerman said proudly. “It’s our heritage to always have Charolais cattle. We still raise Charolais seedstock today.” The Zimmerman’s diverse experiences in producing beef cattle have taken them from Arizona to Utah to Idaho and then back to Penny’s home state of Minnesota. They have experienced rented irrigated grass, gathering off of the mountain, harsh winters and extreme heat. “The common thread of cattlemen and cattlewomen across the country is that we all work hard, maybe too hard,” she explained. “We all love the cattle or we wouldn’t be doing it just for the fun of it. Whatever the circumstances are we take care of the cattle to the best of our knowledge and adapt to different regional challenges. It’s a small world and when we meet each other we can understand each other’s experiences.” Zimmerman’s involvement in American National

CattleWomen began in 2000. She was encouraged by Bill to become involved, as he was actively involved with Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The first couple of meetings were like learning a new language, but as she became more fluent in beef she also became more involved. An elementary teacher for 28 years, it was only natural for her to include curriculum about beef into her daily lesson plans. During her prep hours she would volunteer to teach beef information in other classrooms. Later, as an ANCW regional director for three years, she was more than once asked when she was going to run for President. It took her more than once to make it through the nominating committee, but she persevered and it paid off as she was elected this past January. “The ANCW is for women who have a passion for the beef industry and want to be a part of a community with great camaraderie,” she said. “We have three focus areas: education for youth and consumers, promoting retail beef product and legislative lobbying.” Another benefit that came up often was networking and Zimmerman’s focus to improve networking opportunities in ANCW. Through affiliations with American Agri-Women, Animal Agriculture Alliance and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association partnerships have been formed to work together to benefit the beef and agriculture industries. Zimmerman’s main focus as ANCW President is to be a cheerleader to local, state, and regional chapters within the organization. That focus helped grow membership and expand outreach efforts. She said. “My goal was to visit as many affiliate states as possible. I will have been to over 20 states by the end of my

term to talk about what we are here for and let members know how we as a national organization can support them.” Two new programs within ANCW that Zimmerman is proud of are the Women’s Leadership Certificate Program and Collegiate Beef Advocacy. “For the Leadership Certificate Program women take three classes in the area of ANCW bylaws and history, parliamentary procedure and meeting conduct, and promotional materials and strategy. They also take the Master of Beef Advocacy classes through NCBA and are encouraged to take Beef Quality Assurance. These are things that help women in any organization not just ANCW.” The Collegiate Beef Advocacy program started last year with a 3-person team from different universities across the country. The team has participated in educational opportunities throughout the past year and completed a project promoting beef to their peers on campus. “We took them to Washington D.C. to a legislative conference and they learned about lobbying and how we can be an influence by meeting their congressmen and congresswomen,” Zimmerman said. “They attended a meat science conference in College Station, Texas and other conferences throughout the year. We train them and give them knowledge to return to their campus and organize events that promote beef to their peers.” After a successful first year in the program there were many qualified applicants this year for a 5-person team. The application deadline has passed and the 2018 team has been selected, but Zimmerman encourages you to begin preparation now for next year’s application. Zimmerman listed several influential women that have helped her this past year, with several highlights that stand out for her. “Seeing different cultures has always been an interest of mine,” she said. “As I travelled from the southeast states to western states and across the Midwest I got to see different cultures. I love to find different kinds of food unique to each region. Overall the kind people and great hospitality will forever be remembered.”

After her term is up in 2018, Zimmerman plans to take a deep breath and enjoy retirement. She retired right before her term as President began and looks forward to getting things organized and neat at home. Penny and Bill are also planning a mission trip through their church in the next few years. That is fitting, that same passion for education has brought Penny to her next chapter.
