VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS The Market Dictates Reality Utilize the opportunities

As long as we have a beef industry, we’ll always have debate about show ring

versus industry direction. Throughout industry cycles of the past century, we’ve seen cattle get bigger, leaner, change colors, data versus no data, get smaller, and add more fat. You get the picture. At the end of it all is the reality that sooner or later, the market dictates the phenotypic qualities preferred as a factor of end product merit. One common denominator through more than a century of livestock shows is the necessary and heavily weighted influence of the commercial cow-calf producer. The National Western Stock Show (NWSS) is the launching pad for a series of stock shows in the early months of 2015. Bull sales and discussions taking place “down in the yards” have been synonymous with the temperament of the beef industry in any given year. Denver pen and carload shows have been a reliable venue for seedstock producers to showcase the next generation of sires destined for registered and commercial beef operations. The NWSS closed the books on the 2015 event in record-breaking fashion. The 16 day event closed after recording the second highest attendance in the 109 year history with 682,539 visitors passing through the gates. The NWSS

As the lights dim on the 2015 Fort Worth Stock Show, the doors open on the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. San Antonio, like the shows before and after, is designed to include all ages and all levels of interest in livestock and agriculture. Last year, the San Antonio Stock Show All Breed Bull & Heifer Sale grossed just over $1.6 million. The sale features purebred bulls and commercial heifers consigned by Texas beef producers. Just down the road, as the events in San Antonio wind down, all eyes turn to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo (HLSR). More than 2.48 million visitors got an up close and personal look at one element of the beef business in 2014. The HLSR footprint is massive on the city of Houston with an aggregate gross sales increasing by nearly half a billion dollars during the annual event. The HLSR creates more than 7,000 full-time equivalent jobs. While many exhibitors from the southwest head to Texas for most of February and early March, the Black Hills Stock Show (BHSS) in Rapid City, S.D., opens its barn doors three days after the conclusion of the National Western Stock Show. Since 1956, the BHSS has provided opportunities to seedstock and commercial beef producers to display their product. In 1964, the BHSS added a “commercial cattleman’s day” and launched an event

“... every beef producer that shows up to exhibit has an opportunity to directly connect with customers and consumers. ” and all it represents is so important to the city of Denver and its partnership with livestock and agriculture, a massive renovation project will transform the NWSS for the next 100 years. In the planning and feasibility stage for the past few years, the city of Denver recently unveiled the Master Plan. http://www.denvergov.org/ Portals/728/documents/NDCC/NWC_Master%20Plan%20Draft%20121814.pdf The plan represents a monumental undertaking that will transform blighted neighborhoods, provide green space and greatly enhance the NWSS facilities. It states, “The Plan begins to position Denver as a global player in 21st century agricultural issues that will help advance, through new public/ private partnerships, our knowledge around food production, safety and the expansion of healthy foods at an international scale.” Each year, the Fort Worth Stock Show opens on the heels of the NWSS closing. Several years ago, the city of Fort Worth committed the financial resources to preserve the legacy and relevance of the Fort Worth Stock Show. In addition to all the individual breed shows, the commercial female replacement sale has become one of the most well attended events during the show’s run. This year, more than 500 commercial females will sell representing 33 beef operations.

to showcase commercial females. This competitive five-head exhibition is followed by the sale of commercial replacement heifers. The take home message is there will always be debates about stock show relevance. From early January through March each year for the past 100 years, exhibitors engaged in meat protein production have had an incredible venue and opportunity to showcase agriculture and most certainly, beef production. Fifty years ago, agriculture and food production was better understood. Today, less than one percent of Americans are directly involved in food production. From Rapid City, S.D. to Houston, Texas, hundreds of thousands of consumers will venture out to see live animals on display, jobs are created, and the economic impact to the cities are enormous. More importantly, every beef producer that shows up to exhibit has an opportunity to directly connect with customers and consumers. Remember, you’re speaking for the one percent to the 99 percent that are further removed from agriculture everyday. You are relevant. The Charolais breed is relevant. As a very small demographic, everyone involved in meat animal protein production is relevant.

WANTED FOR IMPORT: PART 2

BREEDING BEEF CATTLE By Linda Eck

Exporting genetics is no picnic, but a growing world population is bringing opportunities for cattle producers willing to go the extra mile. “I can tell you the last four or five years have been banner years for cattle exports,” says Tony Clayton, who has worked at exporting livestock for more than 25 years. “You can throw a dart at the map and hit a country that is interested in importing livestock.” Clayton added that both beef and dairy cattle are being exported at a rate that is not only benefiting purebred producers, but commercial cattlemen as well, with the impact being felt in the overall supply and demand. “There’s been a lot of business going on regardless of breed,” added Clayton, president of Clayton Agri-Marketing, Inc., an independent export company headquartered in Jefferson City, Mo. The experienced exporter also noted Charolais cattle from the United States have been especially welcomed in Mexico, where recent drought has resulted in losses and producers are struggling to rebuild.

“They’re after the growth, quality and feed efficiency,” said Clayton, adding that many Mexican producers send their feeder cattle back into the U.S. to be finished. “It’s all about food right now,” emphasized Clayton. “By the year 2050 the world will have 9 billion people. As people become more affluent…you buy...you eat better.” USDA 2012 census reports indicate the value of livestock sold as growing by a rate of nearly 19 percent from 2007 to 2012. “Those numbers seem to go up every year,” added Clayton. “Food is more and more important. There’s a big movement back to urban areas and it’s a really good opportunity for American farmers and ranchers.” SMALL OR LARGE, THERE’S ROOM FOR EVERYONE Large and small breeders across the country are combining their resources to put top genetics into beef cattle programs around the world. “You can’t be too big and you can’t be too small to export,” said Clayton. “It’s breeders working together.”

“The exporting business continues to grow world-wide as do the challenges we face on virtually every transaction” - Renee Strickland “Find an exporter,” recommends Robert Williams, director of breed improvement and foreign marketing for the American-International Charolais Association. “If you think you have a market or have been contacted by someone, find an expert in the field that can help.” When producers from growing countries beckon for cattle, it often takes several breeders from a region or from across the United States to pull the numbers together. That’s where private companies, like Clayton’s, come into play. A past president of the Livestock Exporting Association (LEA), Clayton encourages livestock producers to work with the organization and its members rather than trying to go it alone when exporting. United States Livestock Genetic Export, Inc. (USLGE), a not-for-profit national trade organization, also plays a vital role in drawing world markets to the superior livestock genetics offered by progressive breeders in the United States. USLGE’s largest membership comes from breed associations, including the AICA, and state agriculture departments looking to stay connected with export opportunities. Both organizations have established international contacts and work together to promote the export of U.S. Their overlapping interests and concerns have led the groups to host joint meetings. This year the LEA is planning its fourth annual livestock exporting seminar in conjunction with the annual meeting of the USLGE. Those events are set to take place Feb. 16-19 in St. Louis, Mo. The USLGE supports its members through the funding of promotional activities and connects potential international buyers with members who can assist them in meeting their needs. In his position with the AICA, Williams has most recently made promotional trips to Germany and France. His January 2015 itinerary included a trip to Costa Rica to check back on a joint project aimed at promoting U.S. genetics. “Most foreign producers looking to buy live cattle will contact exporters directly,” said Williams, who works with the USLGE on behalf of the AICA. “If they’re after genetics, semen mostly, they’ll contact semen companies.” 28  

“We have people contact us occasionally,” he added, referencing visiting groups mainly from Brazil and Hungary that want to tour Charolais ranches. MOVING FORWARD THROUGH INTENSE REGULATIONS Regulations for exporting are intense and timing is everything. Once cattle are selected for export, they must be tested to meet well-defined regulations specific to each country. Quarantines are usually involved and transportation, especially if going by sea, must be booked well in advance. “The exporting business continues to grow world-wide as do the challenges we face on virtually every transaction”, says current LEA President Renee Strickland. “The fact is that we have lots of tools that can help U.S. exporters be competitive, but to be successful you have to know how to tap into those resources.” Health requirements, as directed by individual countries, are overseen by the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). International health certificates are required and must be completed by an accredited veterinarian who certifies herd and individual animal health. With all the red tape required for live animal export, one might think that exporting semen is a much simpler process, but that is hardly the case as many of the same health tests are required of bulls collected for semen export purposes. “Country specific testing includes everything from Brucellosis, Tuberculosis, Lepto, BVD, and Blue Tongue,” said Greg Short, custom services coordinator with Genex Cooperative, Inc. In addition to custom collections, the Genex Strafford facility in Missouri works to assist customers in qualifying bulls for export sales and providing health papers for shipments. The facility maintains a separate isolation barn that can be utilized to qualify bulls for countries with stringent health regulations. Semen for export must meet Certified Semen Services’ (CSS) minimum requirements for disease control and embryos for export require that the donor sire also meet those basic requirements. In order to clear the way for export, cattlemen need to

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


understand that the bull cannot be used for natural service and must remain in isolation until the process is complete. “Mexico and Puerto Rico require the basic CSS,” said Short, “but the European market requires more specific testing.” APHIS maintains regulations from more than 130 countries, all of which are subject to change at any time. TRAVEL PLANNING FOR YOUR CATTLE, EDUCATION FOR YOUR CLIENTS Transportation expenses for exporting in North America are obviously less expensive with cattle moved to port facilities along the borders. “Our way of doing it has always been at the ports,” said Short. “Semen is shipped to a certain area port and one of our employees comes down for the pickup.” As for live animal exchange, Short noted you have to make appointments for live animals to be there, unloaded and then cleared to move across the border. “Pens have to be available.” Moving cattle to European countries from U.S. seaports gets expensive. Clayton noted that ocean freight from the east coast to Russia can run from $1,000 to $1,200 per head. Special vessels are equipped with pens, watering and ventilation systems, a trained staff and veterinary facilities to handle as many as 2,000 head. Airfare runs around $2,500 per animal. “Sometimes we book a vessel several months in advance,” added Clayton, noting that a lot of planning goes into a successful shipment. Things like weather, environment and management protocol have to be considered. The time of year is important especially if you’re moving from a good climate to a hot and dry area or colder climate.

“We follow up with our clients on a regular basis,” said Clayton. “We export bred heifers at three or four months, trying to time shipments so animals can get acclimated before going into production.” That alone can prove to be challenging when factoring breeding management and pregnancy checking into already stringent health and quarantine regulations. “It’s not the American system,” Clayton said of management protocols in foreign countries. In order to become educated a lot of international clientele have brought in management consultants and health advisors. As they become educated they are building beef cattle production facilities and “we see a lot of good production units developing.” He also noted that producers in other countries don’t understand our spring and fall calving seasons and have the misnomer that all cattle in the United States are registered. Some countries pay subsidies on imported livestock and cattle are tracked through registration papers. He noted that recent requirements for subsidized imports in Russia required 75 percent of imports to be registered, while the country of Kazakhstan requires all to be registered. While referencing new markets opening up in Iraq, Jordan, Pakistan and Ecuador, Clayton pointed out that education is a fundamental part of the export system. “You have to educate so that all these points come together and clients are successful,” he added. “We do some missionary work…educating the international community on EPDs, what breeding values do and how they can help their programs. It’s ongoing.”

A deworming with LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) can help keep parasites from eating into your profits. If you used a conventional dewormer like CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) or in combination, your cattle are probably already reinfected with parasites. That’s because conventional dewormers only last 14 to 42 days and SAFE-GUARD has no persistent effect. Only LONGRANGE delivers up to 100 to 150 days of parasite control in a single treatment.1,2 When you look at the benefits of season-long parasite control with LONGRANGE – you’ll see you have a lot to gain.

Use LONGRANGE on your cow/calf operation and see the difference for yourself.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extended-release anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age. STORAGE Store at 77° F (25° C) with excursions between 59° and 86° F (15° and 30° C). Protect from light. Made in Canada.

Directors By Area

Hello fellow AIJCA members. I am Payton Creasey the new Area 5 AIJCA board member and representative. I am 18 years old and a senior at Macomb Jr/Sr High School, Macomb, IL. I have been a member of the AIJCA for 10 years and I really enjoy showing my cattle in the beef industry because of all the experiences it has provided in my life. I have met so many great people through it as well. Q:

Where are you going to college next year? What do you plan to major in?

A: Next year I am attending Western Illinois University and majoring in Agriculture Business. Even though WIU is in my home town, Macomb, I will be staying in the dorms. I look forward to meeting new people and making new friendships.

Q:

If you could have any super power what would it be and why?

A: I would love to have the power to fly. I would never have

to deal with traffic again, and I would get places much faster. I mean who doesn’t want to be able to fly.

Q:

What is your most embarrassing show ring moment?

A:

My most embarrassing show ring experience was a time my heifer started to act up and it caused my show stick to get caught in my hoop earring. She got a little bit more out of control and the show stick ended up tripping both of us up, but the heifer stuck the landing a little better than I did.

Q: What do you look forward to most at Junior Q: What are some of your hobbies and interests? National and why? A: I love to spend time out in the barn with my heifers and A: I look forward to seeing everyone that I don’t get to my dad. Watching my heifer’s progress over the show season is truly worth it. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I would not be where I am now without all their help and support. My family means the world to me. I also love to spend time with my friends and make memories. Being in my senior year, I try to enjoy every bit of time I can get with my close friends now because I know at the end of the year we will all be going our separate ways and our quality time will be limited.

Q: Who is the most important role model in your life? A: My dad is my biggest role model. He works very hard day

after day to provide the best life for his family. He sacrifices many things for us girls and would do anything for us. He always spends countless hours helping us in the barn. Everything he does for us he does with a smile and never complains. I really look up to him and hope to be half as great of a person as he is.

Q:

What are some of your traits that help you to be a good board member?

A: Being a board member is taking on a big role. You are leading your area and being the voice of all the members in your area as well. One trait that helps me to be a good board member is to not be afraid to speak up and talk about what I believe in or what I think will best benefit my area. I also have to have good communication with all the members as well and be able to come back to the board and get accomplished what my area might have in mind.

32  

F E B R U A R Y 2015

see that often and making new friendships. I enjoy getting to talk to others and making new friendships with people all over the country. I love spending the week in a different location each year. This year I also look forward to being more involved now that I am on the board.

Q:

What advice would you give new members on how to become more involved?

A: My advice to a new junior member or any member in

general would be don’t be shy or afraid to talk to people. They would love to have a conversation with you about your cattle and even would love to hear how you have been getting along. Also the best thing any member can do is get involved. You will learn many life changing skills and it will leave you with unforgettable memories.

LT Blue Value 7903 ET

The “Value” of LT Blue Value genetics continues to rise at Wright Charolais and herds across the United States.

Here is the Blue Value son that captured lots of attention when he sold in the 2012 Lindskov-Thiel Bull Sale for $75,000. If you want to talk about performance, take a look at his individual stats of weaning and yearling, and then watch what his sons are doing when run across the scales. He is the current #5 ranked AICA Weaning Weight Trait Leader and it won’t be long before he hits that list for yearling weight. One of his sons was the top weaning weight bull ever raised at WC in 2013 with a 945 lb. adjusted weaning weight!

Heifers: Are you OVERdeveloping heifers? By: Melissa DePriest, DVM How you develop heifers can impact their lifetime production on your farm. Discover whether your heifer development plan is actually improving profitability, or just increasing your cost of production. Fetal programming Fetal programming is the concept that the environment a calf experiences in the uterus can affect the productivity of that calf throughout its lifetime, as well as influence the productivity of its offspring for several generations. How cattle are fed during pregnancy can impact the growing fetus. For example, if there is undernutrition during pregnancy, it can result in reduced birth weight of offspring for several generations. In addition, supplementing protein to cows during the last trimester of pregnancy can improve the performance of their offspring. Overnutrition of the cow during pregnancy can also have a negative impact on the calf. Overnutrion can increase birth weight in calves, which can lead to difficulty calving. Overnutrition can also decrease reproductive life and longevity of heifer calves that remain in the herd. Fetal organs develop at different times throughout pregnancy. Within the first 50-60 days of pregnancy, the ovaries begin to form in female calves. The nutritional status of the cow during this time can impact the development of the ovaries and future reproductive performance of the calf.

Dr. Melissa DePriest is a 2013 graduate of the University of Missouri and works for Livestock Veterinary Service in Eldon, Missouri. She is a food animal exclusive practitioner that works primarily with cow-calf and stocker beef operations. Dr. DePriest and Livestock Veterinary Service also provide non-traditional veterinary services such as production record management and nutritional consulting.

F E B R U A R Y 2015

Is developing heifers to the traditional 65% of mature body weight economical for your operation? Research published in 2008 demonstrated that heifers developed to 50% and 55% of mature body weight had successful pregnancy rates (Martin et al.). This increases your nutritional options when developing heifers. For example, grazing dormant winter forages to develop heifers may reduce bodyweight at the time of breeding without negatively impacting pregnancy rates. Raising heifers in the environment that they will be managed as cows may improve productivity and longevity. Raising replacement heifers like feedlot steers and then turning them out to pasture during the breeding season may not allow them to reach full reproductive potential. Feeding replacement heifers similar to the way they will be fed during breeding and pregnancy will prevent a dramatic change in nutrition. You may be able to reduce the amount of feed or utilize less expensive feed during the heifer development period. Limiting feed during the developmental period can reduce costs without reducing reproductive efficiency. It is important to realize that I am not recommending under-feeding animals to reduce costs. If heifers are too thin, overall health and conception rates will be negatively impacted. Heifers not fed to reach an appropriate size may also have difficulty calving. Developing heifers require more energy in feed during the last trimester of pregnancy than mature cows because of their own growth requirements at this time. It just may be more beneficial (and economical) to ramp up the plane of nutrition during this time, rather than raising overconditioned heifers prior to breeding and attempting to maintain that condition throughout gestation. When managing groups of heifers, you can either select animals that match CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


the management system, or you can adjust the system to match the animals in it. Keep this in mind when planning your own unique heifer development program. Also, understand that there is a genetic component involved in a heifer’s age at puberty and nutritional requirements during the developmental period. Different breeds of cattle may have different pregnancy rates when developed to the same percentage of mature body weight. Reducing cost or increasing revenue does not always result in profitability Cost reduction only increases profit when revenues remain unchanged or decline less than the cost savings (Stockton et al). So, reducing nutritional costs associated with heifer development will increase profitability as long as heifers maintain reproductive ability overall. For example, if you can maintain a pregnancy rate of 90% while reducing feed costs, you will have an increased profit if all other costs remain the same. Production increases will raise revenues but only result in higher profits when the costs associated with obtaining the increased production are less than the increased revenues (Stockton et al). You can improve pregnancy rate to 95%, but if feed costs exceed the revenue of having more calves you will not increase profit. Here are a few factors that you can keep in mind to optimize profitability of your replacement heifers: 1) A uniform group of heifers (similar size, age, etc.) will have a higher profitability potential than a group of heifers that are unlike each other. 2) Large heifers fed lower rates of nutrition have a greater potential for loss than small heifers fed higher rates of nutrition. 3) Large heifers reach puberty at a later age and require higher levels of nutrition to optimize profitability.

Effect of prebreeding body weight or progestin exposure before breeding on beef heifer performance through the second breeding season.

Effect of Post-Weaning Heifer Development System on Average Daily Gain, Reproduction, and Adaptation to Corn Residue during First Pregnancy. Nebraska Beef Cattle Report 2012:37-38

Summary While the cattle market is favorable, nutrition may seem worth the expense at this time. But if you are interested in long-term sustainability in the beef cattle business, it may be beneficial to adjust your heifer development program to improve profitability in this area.
