VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Progress is never without peril. Proceed with caution

This extraordinary bullish cattle market and the forecast for the next couple of years, while very exciting, can also be a bit deceiving. It’s easy to get comfortable making decisions without the ominous threat of the bottom falling out of the market the week before you plan to market your calves or pitch the tent for an annual bull sale. Analysts continue to forecast expansion. More favorable moisture has improved forage for much of the plains states. Our export market is still strong and profitable. Interest on debt is still low and manageable. Many seedstock suppliers can’t remember a time when the demand for good bulls was as strong as it has been in 2014. A comparison of Charolais spring bull sales, 2013 compared to 2014, reported in the Charolais Journal, supports the strong demand experienced nationwide. In 2013, Charolais producers averaged $4,030 on 1,301 bulls. In the spring of 2014, 1,322 Charolais bulls averaged $5,131 for a $1,101 increase. Yet, expansion is slow and almost negligible. Cattle feeders are stretching themselves to the limit to fill pen space. The good news is many cattle feeders are scouring the country for feeder cattle with more predictable upside potential and they have reliable genomic sorting

4. Interconnectedness is greater. “Your borrowers might also own the local John Deere dealership or local elevator.” 5. Trade and global risk is influenced by politics and power beyond our control. 6. Collateral is greatly impacted by 2-3 year downturn in price Kohl reminded the audience of the 1980s. His audience, most of who weren’t born yet, had a sense of the difficult times in lending during skyrocketing interest and out of control inflation. For ranchers, remembering the reality of the ’80s still fall into the nightmare category! Moving forward, its important producers recognize the positive differences in the beef industry from the 1980s until now. 1. In the 1980s, all cattle were marketed on a cash basis. The only “sorting tool” was the order buyer’s visual appraisal. 2. The bovine genome would not be sequenced for more than 20 years. 3. The first generation sire evaluation reports were being studied but not yet understood. 4. Herd improvements were based on phenotypic information.

“Kohl reminded ag lenders to prepare for tough times if the drop in farm profits continues.” tools to factor into pricing decisions. At the risk of sounding like Chicken Little “the sky is falling”, we all know progress is never without peril. At a minimum, most lifelong producers recognize the importance of proceeding cautiously. For certain, every producer’s banker does! Professor emeritus and agriculture banking consultant David Kohl recently spoke at American Bankers Association’s National Agricultural Bankers Conference. Kohl reminded ag lenders to prepare for tough times if the drop in farm profits continues. Obviously, the message was intended for those lenders with portfolios heavily weighted in commodity grains and farming. A few of Kohl’s talking points appear here only as a reminder of the high stakes business, whether we raise livestock or crops. 1. The numbers are bigger. “A 10,000 to 12,000 acre operation can go upside down $3 million to $4 million quickly.” 2. Volatility is greater 3. Concentration of debt is greater. “Much of the debt is in fewer hands. We don’t have a farm debt problem. We have a debt concentration problem.”

5. Few seedstock producers had working knowledge of the interface between seedstock production and end product. Thankfully, the problems of the ’80s are behind us. The beef industry, Charolais breeders and the breed are well equipped to avoid the past. It’s more important to realize the opportunities for the future. 1. Charolais seedstock producers have more tools and technology than ever before to make reliable breeding decisions. 2. Value based grids reward producers for more quality pounds. 3. Charolais is arguably the breed preference for Continental influence in the nation’s commercial cow herd. Possibly one of the greatest improvements made since the catastrophic ’80s is the beef industry’s focus on partners, research and collaborative efforts. Veterinarians, lenders, academia, commercial bull buyers, cattle feeders, stocker operators, order buyers and packers—everyone benefits if we work together to make the industry better. If we’re successful, the ultimate benefactor is the consumer.

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


Robert Williams,

Director of Breed Improvement Director of Foreign Marketing

DNA Much more cost effective As I discussed in my last column in the October issue of the Charolais Journal, genetic evaluation continues to improve as technology advances. For example, the cost of using DNA has become much more cost effective to the point now that we have commercial uses available to producers. This will continue to expand through competition of companies who offer the technology and as research groups take advantage of lower costs. In fact we’ve gone from a point in 2001 where sequencing the human genome came at a cost of $100M to less than $10,000 today! These improvements in genetic evaluation will come in the form of improved accuracy, especially for younger animals with low numbers of progeny or no progeny at all. Research at multiple universities over a period of many years has shown selection by using current methodology is an improvement in selection over selection based solely on phenotypic data. In fact research has shown that selection based on non-parental EPD can be as much as nine times more accurate than selection based on a with-in herd ratio or weight. Incorporation of genomic data into current genetic evaluations stands to improve this accuracy of selection. At the base of this improvement in selection accuracy though is the need for phenotypic data. Genetic evaluations, rather genomic enhanced or not, rely on producers reporting performance data on complete contemporary groups. Complete data reporting is necessary because selection can only occur when variation exists, in other words, if no variation exists then differences between animals cannot be evaluated. Additionally, reporting bias or not reporting all of the data leads to a bias in the EPD that is a reflection of the bias of the data reported. Now that weaning data has been reported this past fall we look forward to the reporting of yearling data this coming winter and spring. The trademark for Charolais genetics has always been growth, muscle and increased carcass weights. Reporting yearling growth and ultrasound data gives Charolais breeders the best opportunity to continue the tradition as the breed of choice to improve growth and efficiency.

Hey guys, my name is Ty Dybdal and I am excited to be your

Area 2 Director for the AIJCA. I am a freshman in college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a major in Agricultural Business. I grew up near Newcastle, Nebraska and attended Hartington Public School. My parents are Larry and Krista, and I have two sisters Taylor and Trisha. My family and I have a Charolais herd of around 300 head. I have always been very active in our herd. I have been showing Charolais cattle now for 12 years and have always loved the breed.

Q: What is it like to be a Nebraska Cornhusker? A: As the school song says, “There’s no place like Nebraska.”

I was raised following Cornhusker football and attending football camp in Lincoln each summer. It is a special tradition, with and excellent academic program. I am proud to say that I attend the University of Nebraska Lincoln.

Q: What are some of your hobbies outside of Charolais? A: Besides showing cattle, I love to go fishing in the summer.

I have a blast at the river when the cats are really biting and you cannot keep your line in the water. I love the rush of deer season when does are running and the bucks are chasing, and it cannot get any better than just going out on the horse and checking the cattle. I love to get on the horse and ride anywhere.

Q: How did you get introduced to the Charolais breed

and showing cattle, tell us about your family operation?

A: I have always been involved with the Charolais breed. Our operation started in 1982 when dad bought his first Charolais cows. He fell in love with the breed and has grown the herd to around 300 registered Charolais cattle. We also run about 50 head of commercial cows alongside. I started showing cattle when I was about six years old traveling to shows with my parents. My dad and mom have played an influential role getting me started in showing. We also run a row crop operation. We annually host a bull and female sale. Q:

Last year you received the Gold Elite Merit Award, the highest merit award only given to one junior. Tell us about some of your activities and your operation that allowed you to receive the Gold Elite Award.

A: I have been very involved in the Nebraska Junior Charolais

Association serving in each office and as President for 3 years. I have participated in many cattle shows in Nebraska and have been named Champion in many different occasions in 4-H, FFA or open shows. I attended my first Junior National 24  

in Hutchinson, KS in 2005. I, along with my family, was hooked after attending just one Junior National. We have made this our ‘family vacation’ each summer (with the exception of one). The first Junior National I was involved in almost everything possible, even singing “I’m Proud To Be An American.” I still remain involved in nearly each competition each summer. I can make some ‘mean’ beef meals as a result of the Cook-off Contest! I was also able to assist with organizing the 2012 Junior National that were held in Nebraska. It was a great learning experience. As far as my own operation, my herd has grown to 35 head over the years.

Q:

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

A: Showing cattle is not particularly something easy to do. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be able to get an animal to look good in supreme condition. As a kid, it is hard to hang onto a calf that is not completely tame. I was lucky enough to have a dad who stood behind me and assisted me with everything it took to have a successful show career. My dad has taken so much time out of his day where he could be working on his own stuff to take me to cattle sales, help out with washing calves and feeding the calves. I am blessed to have someone like this in my life. I have always looked up to him, I remember as a kid digging through all of his champion rodeo belt buckles and hoping for my own someday. He always has been and always will be an inspiration to me on the farm and as a role model. Q: What is your favorite aspect of the breed? A: The Charolais breed has always been a breed that

impresses me. I believe that this breed is the most productive breed in the feedlot and in the pasture. I love the aspect that Charolais has held true to the fact that cattle must be 100% purebred to be registered. I think that this is something that allows our breed to have a distinct advantage over other breeds.

Q:

What are you looking forward to about the Christmas season?

A: I am looking forward to getting together with all of the family and seeing everyone again. This is the most exciting part of the year because of all the winter sales and shows. Also it is the beginning of the new calf crop for 2015! It is exciting to watch the calves grow and see how they can influence the Charolais industry. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

This is indeed a rare OPPORTUNITY! This is one of only a few “hand selected” heifers ever selected out of the vast DeBruycker Charolais herd to be shown! n This was the Robert’s choice of the entire set of heifers, and that door is seldom opened at DeBruyckers. n The CJC prefix, Cathy & Joe Campbell (Cathy the DeBruycker daughter) is known throughout the Charolais kingdom. n She represents some of the most sought after Charolais genetics in the industry, from the largest seedstock producer in the country. n Ms Practical A735 only went out to show once and came away as the Grand Champion Female at the 2014 NILE. She is as outstanding on paper as she is on foot! n She sells bred A.I. on 5-2-14 to CJC Trademark H45 and pasture exposed to multiple DeBruycker herd bulls thereafter, if bred to pasture sires, DeBruyckers will cover the DNA costs. n The sellers reserve the rights to two successful flushes at the sellers cost and at the buyers convenience.

CHOICE OF BRED HEIFERS

Selling Buyers Choice of 2 Eaton Bred Heifers

What an opportunity and an offering that always creates quite a stir in Denver when the Eaton’s open up their entire set of bred heifers for this selection. n We will sell the first choice and then the buyer will have the option to double the bid and take both bred heifers, or we will open the bidding again, if the first buyer only wants one heifer. n In 2012 when the Eaton family offered this bred heifer choice four heifers were chosen for $7,000, $7,000, $6,600 and $6,600. In 2013 two bred heifers brought $6,500 and $6,500. In 2014, the two lots sold for $11,000 and $10,500! n There are over 500 head of these bred heifers from which to select, you may need to set a day or two aside when you go to make the selection. Most of these heifers have been A.I.’d to these sires LT Ledger 0332 P, Eatons White Throttle 30094(a son of Ledger) and to Eatons Bullseye 4145. n These females have EPD’s that rank in the top percentages of the breed, they are just what you’d expect; easy fleshing, linebred uniformity, heavy milking and branded with that respected ETN reputation. n You can wait until these heifers calve out in the spring of 2015. You get to select the best milking heifers, the ones with bull or heifer calves, sired by the A.I. sires or pasture sires, from the cow family you wish, it’s all there! But they would like this selection to be completed by May 1 turn out time. n Opportunity is knocking, will you answer? n

CHOICE OF BRED HEIFERS Selling Buyers Choice of Cobb Charolais Ranch Bred Heifers

n For

50-plus years Cobb Charolais has constantly been refining and improving the economically important traits of Charolais cattle in this reputation herd. This is a “closed herd” all “one-brand”! n They only let us make this offering occasionally and we are glad to have this “choice of the herd” this year. In 2012, this choice lot sold for $7,100 to Riverdale Land & Livestock in Missouri in this sale, in 2013 during the Charolais in the Rockies Sale, it sold for $7,750 to Moore Land & Cattle in Illinois. Last year they decided not to offer any choice. n Cobb Charolais is the 4th largest registered Charolais herd in the United States with over 650 registered females. The Cobb breeding has provided solid foundation performance cattle with outstanding outcross genetics for some of North Americas best know Charolais breeders. n There are over 100 of these bred heifers born in 2013 from which to select. This will not be a lot in which we can offer a second or third choice! n The Cobb’s would like this selection to be completed by May 15, 2015, so you will get to select from pairs!

This outstanding donor dam was quietly and quickly taking her place as one of the most powerful E.T. donor dams at Southern Cattle Company when Drew Foglesong purchased the entire herd this past summer. n As you will remember in the Southern Cattle Company ads, when it was to be a dispersal, Mr. John Downs was going to keep 20 head out of 40 head placed in the ring together with the buyer selecting one of the two head in the ring. That concept was kept intact when the whole herd was sold privately. When paired up with another donor dam, Drew selected this donor, yet during the pairing up of the open heifer calves, Mr. Downs selected 5 daughters of 106X to build his herd back with! Drew kept ten of her daughters. 13 of her sons are some of the most powerful in the bull pen. n Those E.T. progeny were sired by LT Ledger 0332, M6 Hybrid 0171 and M6 Next Step 164. n Her sire was a highly successful show bull in 2008 and ’09. His dam was the great donor for Macy Meadows. The dam of this donor was a donor for Spring Ridge and Double-H Charolais. n The dam of 106X is a full sister to SR Lady Ease 914, the great dam of popular Field Rep, M6 Cool Rep 8108 (the 2014 #1 Multiple Trait Leader) and M6 Fresh Air 8165 (the #15 Weaning Weight Trait Leader). n As Drew has many daughters of this donor to carry on her influence, he will offer full interest and full possession in Faraway Mary 106X. She has a heifer calf at side born October 16, 2014 sired by WC Benelli 2134 ET, the $50,000 DA Passport 502 son out of JWK Clarice J139. n Faraway Mary 106X sells open and ready to flush again. Note again, she has produced 25 registered E.T. progeny in only three flushes. Foglesong Charolais, Andrew Foglesong, Ipava, Illinois 309-221-1439 n

This young heifer has captured many a heart when she has been paraded in front of breeders from all breeds. n She is fresh off her victory at the 2014 American Royal Junior Heifer show, judged by Curt Rincker, Shelbyville, Illinois. What made that victory even better was that during that Jr. Show Miss Rolls Royce defeated both the two heifers that later that day were named the National and Reserve National Champions! n WC Rolls Royce 3177 was also the Division 4 Champion at the 2014 Junior Nationals in Kansas this past summer. Her show winning days are also not behind her, there is more purple to come! n Her sire was the very popular TR PZC Rapid Fire 9775 ET Reserve National Champion Bull in Kansas City in 2010. That was the same day that his two full sisters Firegirl and Bomshell were also the National and Reserve National Champions. The following fall in Louisville, two more full sibs Ivory Angel and Turton were the National Champions! n Her dam Miss Alliance 428 has and always will be one of the great donors in the Wright Charolais embryo program. Three of her sons are working in purebred herds for an average yearling auction price of $12,340. Three weaning age heifer calves have sold for an average price of $13, 267! n WC Rolls Royce 3177 is due to calve this late spring and will be ready to flush at that time.

It’s been a long time since I had heifer like this create this much excitement from the time she first showed up at the National Show in Denver last January. n The questions from the guru’s of the business were all over the place and several tried to buy her and good for Russell Clark he held on as long as he could! n At Denver she went out a won her National Class of ten head and was named National Reserve Junior Calf Champion. She won more shows throughout the spring and summer and came back to Kansas City in October and scare the blank out of them again winning her National Class with some powerful heifers there and then was tabbed the National Senior Champion Female. In the National Championship drive, many onlookers thought she was going to take the crown. n It didn’t happen, but what a female she is! There is a bright future ahead for this power female. She won’t be in Denver as she is close to calving at that time. n This flush sells with a guarantee for 8 transferable embryos with no cap on any above that.

show dedicatee Stan & Mary Bonacker & Family

Larry Lehman, AICA Board of Directors President, Celina, Texas, presented the 46th National Show Dedicatee to Stan & Mary Bonacker & Family, Windy Hill Charolais Farms, Cedar Hill, Mo. From left: Jeff, Karen, Luann, Rachael & Daniel Bonacker; Marsha & Joey Patrickus; Mary & Stan Bonacker; Larry Lehman (behind); David, Annette and Dylan Boncaker

Family, Charolais, Involvement. Words that only partially describe Stan and Mary Bonacker and family, Windy Hills Charolais Farms, Cedar Hill, Missouri. Windy Hill evolved into the Charolais business when Mary first became interested in the breed in early 1965. She had raised a Holstein x Angus heifer that she bred to a Charolais bull, resulting in a heifer calf. That lead Mary and Stan to Laughlin Brothers, Linn, Missouri, where they purchased a Charolais cow and heifer calf. As their interest in the breed grew, in 1966, they visited Chester Franz, Bayvue Farms, Bay, Missouri, who convinced them to join the American-International Charolais Association and gave them their first subscription to the Charolais Banner – from there they became serious Charolais breeders. In 1967, as they built the Windy Hill Charolais cowherd, they purchased their first herd bull, Mr. Prewitt 93, from LeFerme Prewitt, Clarksville, Missouri. The Prewitt family sponsored the Bonackers to join the Missouri Charolais Breeders Association in 1968, where they have been very active ever since. In 1970, Stan divided his family’s dairy partnership to devote fulltime to breeding “quality polled performance tested” Charolais cattle. In those early years of building the breeding program they used sons of Royal Amigo, Bramard and Abraham. Today, the Bonacker family runs 140 plus registered Charolais cows along with commercial heifers. Since 1974 complete performance records including feed conversion and ultrasound are collected and utilized. The breed’s leading genetics are utilized in the breeding program with emphasis on performance and carcass. The family is proud of the fact that they have not sold a replacement quality Charolais animal without transferring the registration paper. Windy Hill is indeed a family operation. Son David, manages the cowherd; son Jeff manages the farming operation; daughter Marsha returns home to help with the annual production sale. Along with the Charolais herd, the Bonackers farm 1,000 acres raising corn, soybeans and hay and operate a farm supply store not only serving local and part and full time farmers and cattlemen, but the ever increasing sprawl of urban St. Louis.

Following are just a few of the accomplishments of the Bonacker family. • 1974 Missouri Farm Bureau Farm Family • 2014 Missouri State Fair Family of the Year • Represented beef cattlemen with the St. Louis Cardinals “Safe At The Plate” campaign • Mary is treasurer of the Charolais Dees and for many years she was the cochairman of the Miss Charolais USA activities and American Royal Charolais banquet. For many years she served as the MCBA Secretary-Treasurer. • Stan served two terms on the AICA Board of Directors and was an officer. He is currently on the AICA Finance Committee. Stan is also a past president of the MCBA. • Windy Hill has hosted Charolais field days and the AICA Seedstock Tour. • Stan and Mary have attended the World Charolais Congress several times. • AIJCA Family of the year in 2009 • Today, the Bonacker grandchildren are active participants in the AIJCA Junior National. The family has been involved with MCBA committees that have hosted 4 AIJCA Junior Nationals and are part of the MCBA efforts in hosting the 2016 Junior Nationals in Springfield, MO. • 1992 AICA Seedstock Producer of the Year • Have shown Charolais cattle at the Missouri state fair since 1974. A highlight includes raising and exhibiting the Grand Champion Carcass in the Carcass Show competition. • David has been a past MCBA Board member. His wife Annette is the long time treasurer and very active in the MCBA role at the American Royal. She is also a cochairman of the annual Sho-Me-Classic Junior Charolais Show. • The family has hosted 17 annual production sales providing a marketing outlet for small Charolais breeders from across Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois. Their 18th sale is scheduled for March 2015. • The Windy Hill cowherd is enrolled in the AICA WHR Program. The Bonacker family represents the foundation of Charolais activities across Missouri. They have always promoted Charolais first and the Windy Hill program second.

Herdsman of the year Craig stalcup, prescott, iowa

Craig Stalcup, Prescott, Iowa (left) with 45th National Herdsmen of the Year Derek Ridder, Hermann, Mo.

Family, friends and growing great cattle. Stalcup named 46th National Herdsman of the Year At the ripe age of 18, Craig Stalcup wasn’t your average high school senior. He grew up as a busy farm boy in Iowa with high aspirations for everything he was about to do and quickly found a passion in Charolais cattle. “My parents started looking for an investment to prompt some additional income outside of our crops,” Craig Stalcup said. “For them, it was a fairly easy decision to move their commercial herd to Charolais, raise bulls and stay really focused when we weren’t as busy farming.” Over the years their herd grew large and reputable in the industry. With Craig’s watchful eye, along with the help of his father James and brother Alan, the Stalcup family had created quite a name for themselves. “After college, I was able to focus full-time and start making changes to improve the cattle and grow the herd,” Stalcup continued. “When my kids were old enough to get involved, that is when things got really fun and exciting for our whole family.” From humble beginnings comes happy endings. At the 46th National Charolais Show in Kansas City, Mo., Stalcup was joined with his family when he was announced as the recipient of the Herdsman of the Year award. One that came of little surprise to anyone, except for Craig. “I have a lot of respect for the past herdsmen that have won this award and it’s a big honor to join the ranks with them,” Stalcup said. “Not sure that I’ve had any other lifetime achievement awards so that made this really special. It’s a very humbling award to have the respect of the people that we’ve shown with for so long.” Stalcup knows the tireless daily work is what has continually improved his

herd. And like many other great cattlemen, he’s more than willing to put in the time that it takes knowing that each project that comes through his pasture could be the next best one. “Staying involved and working hard is what makes me so proud of my kids, Haley, Garrett, and Makayla,” Stalcup said. “They’ve worked hard, don’t slack on the barn work, and have seen sizeable success from their work.” The entire family’s hard work has brought on a consistent set of calves that is enough to make any producer proud. The constant strive for improvement and growing calves that will perform in the feedlot is what their cattle are built upon. Not only are they aiming to better their personal cattle, but it’s also about keeping up and improving the breed. “You can’t ever build the perfect cow or bull, but we can sure try,” Stalcup said. “We want feedlot-driven calves that yield lower birth weights and higher weaning weights. We’ve found a mix of EPDs that fit our high performance calves very well.” With the cattle business now being a staple in the Stalcup family, they find themselves working hard in the barn and using their vacation time traveling to shows together. And because all of the things they do together they are a very tight family, he says. The American-International Charolais Association (AICA) congratulates Craig Stalcup on his achievement as the 46th National Show Herdsman of the Year.
