With the passing of Mary, the Malzahn family and the M&M crew, appreciate the many kind thoughts and prayers extended. The Charolais herd and it’s people were an important part of her life.

CHAROLAIS No shortage of signals. Charolais beef producers are on track.

We may have a shortage of a lot of things. However, industry information signals are not among them! Many of us feel knowing how to sort the overwhelming volume of information is the biggest problem. Long-term weather forecasts indicate another year of historic drought throughout a huge part of cow country. The largest beef producing state, Texas, has experienced equally historic cowherd reductions and liquidations. The corn futures have moderated slightly with no real indication of any permanence or long-term leveling out. The price of hay is only slightly less than gold and for many, even more precious! Yet, for the first time since the BSE outbreak in 2003, and the death spiral of our markets that followed, the beef industry appears to be positioned for several years of “good times”. Beef industry press recently reported that for the first time in more than 40 years, the U.S. would be a net beef exporter in 2011. In fact, exports are predicted to continue to increase, particularly in Asia and the Far East where the middle class is emerging. The U.S. marketing efforts are definitely making a difference. Many foreign consumers actually know the difference

• 9% less fossil fuel — than beef produced in 1977. Ranch management and feeding improvements made between 1977 and 2007 resulted in a 13% increase in yield from 30% fewer animals. It’s easier to simply acknowledge the study proves what we already thought to be fact. However, there is a growing faction of misinformed, misguided activists (i.e.: consumers) that believe the opposite. They believe the answer is to dismantle efficient production and are hell-bent on using their financial resources to politically influence the already oppressive regulatory process. “As the number of mouths to feed increases and the quality of diets in many areas around the world improves, the demand for nutrient-rich protein like beef will increase,” says Capper. “At the same time, resources like land, water and fossil fuels will become increasingly scarce. These realities are like two trains speeding toward each other on the same track. If we listen to alarmists shouting at us to slow down, we could face a head-

“Our ability to manage supply and meet the demand for beef here and around the world is clearly the result of increased efficiency.” between U.S. beef and other suppliers such as South America and Australia, and request our beef at the retail level. We all know the nation’s cowherd has been in decline for the past 20 years. Our ability to manage supply and meet the demand for beef here and around the world is clearly the result of increased efficiency. The beef industry’s ability to produce more pounds on less feed and land resources is really miraculous and a much overlooked testament to scientific progress. In fact, a researcher that’s been in the news lately is Jude Capper, Ph.D., Washington State University. Dr. Capper’s research, “The Environmental Impact of Beef Production in the United States: 1977 compared with 2007”, was recently published in the Journal of Animal Science. The study examines 30 years of production and addresses the hot-button topic of the beef industry’s carbon footprint. Carbon footprint may not be a hot-button topic among the average beef producer. But, like it or not, it will be! Capper’s research is important and validates our efforts to use science and technology to improve efficiency. Her research proves our industry is engaged in best practice methods and production systems. Here are just a few interesting points from the research: Each pound of beef raised in 2007 used— • 33% less land • 12% less water • 19% less feed

on collision of epic proportions. The only way to avoid this disaster is to accelerate the pace of progress.” Understanding one’s most vocal critic is important, regardless of the issue. Relevant to the carbon footprint debate, it’s important to understand the faction of consumers wanting to turn the industry clock back 50 years has no attachment to the beef business. They do not understand where their food comes from or what it costs to produce. This consumer has had the lifetime luxury of making food selections from abundant meat cases and store shelves and has the financial resources to pay for it. This industry critic is not among the millions of people in our own country uncertain about their next meal. Dr. Capper’s research is rigorous, peer reviewed and timely. Her foretelling of an impending food catastrophe is unimaginable to most of us. Yet, if we listen to the industry signals here and around the world, there isn’t a single indication we will need less food in the future. In fact, analysts predict that by 2050 world population will increase by 50% and we will need to produce 70% more food than we produce today. Charolais beef producers are on track. The beginning point in food chain efficiency is your genetics. Charolais-influence genetics are and always have been efficient. The perpetual process of using the newest and best selection tools available insure your ability to produce a value-added product positioned for the future.

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.

AICA Billing Statements

AICA statements are sent at the beginning of each month. Any activity from the previous month will be listed on your statement. Enrollment Available Online

Quick and easy enrollment is available online by logging in with your breeder number and password. Click into “my inventory” to get started. Members using the online program to enroll females do not need to return the paper forms. To receive the lowest enrollment fee, have all enrollments done by April 1st. Online Users!

Online users: use the disposal codes at the bottom of the “quick look” screen to dispose of animals no longer in your herd. DNA Parentage Tip

AICA requires DNA testing for donor cows and AI sires. When DNA testing a calf to verify the parentage of that calf, make sure all possible parents already have a DNA record on file at the lab. The lab will check your calf’s DNA with all the possible parents listed. Parents that don’t have a DNA record at the lab, can’t be used as possible parents.

Is your contact information current?

To ensure that information from the AICA office is received by all of its members, we need your help. There is a growing number of cellular and fax numbers being issued. This has prompted many area code regions to change. When you make any address or phone adjustments, remember to provide us with all applicable breeder numbers—remember junior members, too. We encourage everyone to check their listing and make the necessary corrections immediately. AICA is also inputting e-mail addresses for members into our database as another source of communication.

Mary Elizabeth Malzahn, 90, of Perry was the daughter of `David and Lottie (Cooper) Corneil. She was born on February 6, 1921 in Nardin, Oklahoma and died Monday November 7, 2011 in Perry Memorial Hospital. She attended a one-room school in Nardin but moved to Blackwell to complete high school, attended Oklahoma College for Women, and then Oklahoma A&M. There she met her life mate, Ed Malzahn in a machining course that he was teaching. They wed May 22, 1943. She was a member of the First Presbyterian church and served as choir director for over 20 years. Her love of the Lord was most clearly declared in her music. She sang the truth, she knew it, and loved to share it. All knew where she stood on about any issue because she lived her faith and beliefs openly, a class act. She made a difference in all she touched. Animals of all sorts and sizes from a household pet Gambel’s quail, to llamas, to emu, to turkeys, to Bobwhite quail, to jungle fowl, to her M&M Charolais were an important part of her life. The incubators in the garage never cooled. Mary “Granny” was a farm girl at heart that enjoyed fishing and gardening on a grand scale. Even when it became difficult for her to get around, she rode shotgun in a truck to feed her cattle every morning and worked as “gate girl” between pastures. Her voice was raised for many, many funerals in Perry and thus served as “gate girl” to heaven for many of her friends and others in the community. Mary is survived by her husband Ed; three children, Don Malzahn and his wife Phyllis of Wichita, Kansas, Pam Sewell and her husband David of Perry, Oklahoma, and Leasa Malzahn of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. She has nine grandchildren; Courtney Darrah and her husband Will of Wichita, Kansas, Sarah Malzahn of Englewood, Colorado, Perry Malzahn of Wichita, Kansas, Tiffany Sewell-Howard and her husband Dan of Edmond, Oklahoma, Jason Sewell of Perry, Cody Sewell and his wife April of Perry, Oklahoma, Zahn Wilkerson and his wife Kelly of Chandler, Arizona, Matthew Wilkerson of Tempe, Arizona and Whitney Wilkerson of Chandler, Arizona. She 26  

also has nine great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Catherine and four brothers, Stanley, Ward, Eugene, and Marion. Memorials may be made to the Mary Malzahn Music Memorial in care of Brown-Dugger Funeral Home, 1010 N 7th Street, Perry, Oklahoma 73077. Obituary

Gilbert Link, 75, of Center, passed away on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2011 at his residence. He was born in Tennessee Colony, Texas on May 25, 1936 to Otha Link and Lydia Fischer Link. Mr. Link was employed by Ralston Purina for many years. He was the founder of Shelby LP Gas and was later employed by Gas Tex. Mr. Link worked as a poultry grower and cattle rancher. He owned and operated Link Charolaisin Center. Mr. Link was a member of Christian Church of Tennessee Colony. Pallbearers will be Danny Link, Rick Link, Steve Kirby, Greg Rampy, Jerry Nutt and Mike Wilburn. Honorary pallbearers will be Boo Kline, Clyde Adams, P.O. Samples, James Campbell, Murray Matthews and G.W. Strong. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Odessa Hightower Link of Center; son, Keith Link of Center; daughter, Jolene Link Burns of Katy; four grandchildren, Chris Link and Haley of Center, Kevin Link and Reagan of Center, Heather Burns of Katy and John Burns of Katy; great-grandson, Sutton Link of Center; two sisters: Mary Nell Kirby of Jacksonville and Sandra Ham and husband, Mark of Tennessee Colony; sister-in-law, Gina Link Gingrich and husband, Bob of Palestine; five nephews and one niece. He was preceded in death by his parents, Otha and Lydia Link; and brother, Daniel Link. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Gilbert Link Memorial Scholarship Fund at Shelby Savings Bank, 111 Selma Street, Center, Texas 75935

Improving Pounds of Calves Weaned

Matching Genetics is Key

Few things impact profitability as much as pounds of calves weaned per cow exposed, and no single trait can be singled out that will ensure you maximise profit. Several traits are responsible; genetics for growth, calving ease, maternal ability and reproduction as well as managing the environment which allows animals to express their genetics. As seedstock producers it is your responsibility to produce genetics to aid commercial producers to meet the goal of maximising production. This requires an understanding of genetic selection for various traits and how those traits relate to more calves weaned per cow exposed. Many commercial producers work with a setbreeding season, wean and market their calves at about the same time each year. Therefore, commercial producers are more concerned with actual market weight than the genetics a calf may have for growth even though he understands the genetics for growth are a primary component of market weight. The age of the calf, maternal ability of the dam, and calving ease in addition to genetics for growth all contribute to the number of calves and the weight of the calves at market time. The sooner in the calving season a calf is born the more days he has to market. Cows that calve earlier return more revenue. Clearly fertility of the cowherd is a primary component to profit. Furthermore, cows that have less difficulty calving breed back sooner and have higher conception rates. Therefore, a sire can have a major impact on the reproductive efficiency of the beef herd. There is no easy method to improve total pounds of calves marketed. There are selection tools and managing tips when implemented will have a direct and immediate impact on marketable weight. Genetics for adequate milk production, reproductive efficiency and genetics for growth come to mind. Notice I mentioned adequate milk production and not maximising milk production, research has shown maximising milk production may in fact have a negative influence on beef herd profitability. Paying close attention to calving ease and genetics for growth can have a positive impact on profitability. Matching the genetics of sires to maternal genetics will pay big dividends at market time. Those producers that provide quality management through good herd health and nutrition will allow superior genetics to be expressed. Producers who balance genetic selection with herd management skills will be rewarded with superior market weights and fewer calves being docked at market.

by I always think to myself, “Have I done everything I wanted to do?” Unfortunately, sometimes the answer is no. Do you want to know why? Well, it is either because I am “too busy” or it’s a little out of my comfort zone or I just thought I would have time later. Let me tell you guys, the time is now! If you have opportunities that present themselves, take it and run with it! If you’ve always wanted to go to Junior Nationals and had other things come up, go! Life will still be there when you get back. Do everything possible while you are still young enough to do them. I would hate for you to look back and think “Man, I wish I had done that”. Tomorrow is not promised to us so take advantage of

themselves, all I can say is “just do it”. The AIJCA is an organization in existence not only to help you make connections with other breeders and exhibitors but it is also here to guide and develop your leadership skills. As a leader, it is important for you to be able to take advantage of every opportunity. So, I write to you today to simply let you know that life is too short not to do what you want. It will pass you by in a blink of an eye, so live life to the fullest and make the most of everything. As we bring in the New Year, let us also bring in new commitments to start living life now. Happy New Year, everyone! I wish the best for you all and can’t wait to hear all about your new adventures.

of time, the M & M name stands synonymous with quality bloodlines backed by a solid reputation built on integrity. Married to an entrepreneur just getting started with a new venture, it wasn’t long before Mary moved her Charolais herd to its permanent home in Noble County, Okla., where she and her husband, Ed, procured some land that would help them both to follow their dreams. Now, at the age of 90 and after 43 years of membership in the American-International Charolais Association, Mary’s impressive herd of 250 momma cows graze over 4,000 acres of native grasses, Bluestem and Bermuda, just northwest of Perry, Okla. Conveniently located just a few short minutes from town, the only thing between M & M and Perry is Ed’s Ditch Witch headquarters. Ed, who began Ditch Witch by putting his mechanical engineering degree to work in his father’s machine shop, focused on growing his business by striving for customer satisfaction through quality products, while Mary kept moving her herd forward much in the same manner. A quick glance at the Ditch Witch website and it’s easy to pick up on the shared values of these two progressive entrepreneurs. As they journeyed forward over the years both succeeded by placing value on bloodlines. Ditch Witch proclaims its success to the strong bloodlines of dedicated employees from hometown families, much the same as Mary values the bloodlines of her cattle, but more importantly the dedication of Kevin Wiley, with whom she’s held in confidence for ranch operations for nearly 30 years. “She’s been very trusting,” Wiley said noting that when it came to the cattle, Mary left all the decision making to him. “She never really has tried to force an opinion on what I do.” “Mary is a very good steward of the land,” Wiley added. “We have improved pastures and do a lot of spraying for weed control.” Being sure not to overstock and taking care of the weed population, has helped the ranch maintain a strong nutritional base for the herd. Stockpiling for the winter is standard and cottonseed cubes are used for protein supplementation when needed. Up until about two years ago Mary was at headquarters every morning ready to go as Wiley headed out to look at the cows.

“‘Must be doing something right, everything looks good.’ Those are always her comments when it comes to the herd,” said Wiley, who relies on an intensive artificial insemination and embryo transplant program to keep the herd on top of the game. Rod Lighty works with Wiley as assistant manager for the program and an OSU student works part time. While Wiley does all of the A.I. work, Dr. Kirk Gray of Cross Country Genetics North, near Manhattan, KS has been responsible for the embryo transplant program at M & M from the beginning. Utilizing an ET program since the mid 1980s, Wiley said they first focused their breeding on show ring competition and developing a bull market in an effort to gain notoriety for their young, yet progressive program. While the M & M cattle captured many successes over the years, receiving the honor of “Show Female of the Year” for two show seasons, 1990-91 and 1994-95, bears the most significance for Wiley. Another milestone for the M & M herd came in 1999 when Wiley purchased VCR Miss Duchess 433 in a Four-State Sale at Carthage, Mo. “She was tan colored, had been dehorned, but the genetics were something I was looking for – moderate frame, really thick with a lot of volume,” said Wiley as he remembered the purchase. Wiley put the cow to work in the M & M donor program and over the years Duchess has produced 157 progeny registered at AICA. “We’ve used popular sires like Wyoming Wind and they were always good,” he said of the Duchess progeny. Although deceased, daughters of Duchess by LT Wyoming Wind, 4020, M6 Grid Maker 104, B/T Smart Choice, ASC Eliminator 032 and LT Wind Storm 8223 dot the pastures at M & M. Wiley couldn’t pick just one stand out from the descendants of this prolific cow. He only noted that many have been shown and many entered the donor program to continue the Duchess legacy.

“Mary is a very good steward of the land. We have improved pastures and do a lot of spraying for weed control.” – Kevin Wiley In 2009 Wiley put M & M back on the show road, taking progeny of the recently purchased bull, DR Stealth 574 to compete at the National Western in Denver. “The first calves were unbelievable,” said Wiley. “You can advertise all you want, but until you see ‘em...we took out a pen of five bulls and pen of three heifers and some other cattle to compete on The Hill.”

J A N U A R Y 2012


Revisiting the show ring was a good decision as M & M entries claimed honors for the Champion Pen of Five Bulls and Champion Pen of Three Heifers at The Yards and also made a good showing on The Hill with three class winners and two division champions. Now, the M & M program “is producing cattle that can compete in the pasture with a focus on raising bulls with lower birth weights and higher performance that commercial cattlemen like,” noted Wiley. “We still sell show heifers, many to juniors. But we also sell seed stock females and the majority of our bulls go to commercial producers.” As far as production sales are concerned, “We found out that 250 cows is just not enough if you do your job correctly, culling like you should and putting into a production sale what you need to,” said Wiley of M & M’s history. “Too many production sales dilute the number of quality cows in a small herd. If I’m putting something in a sale, it’s something I want to buy. You don’t put culls in a sale…they go to the sale barn.” M & M proudly hosted the World Charolais Congress in 2010, as the first stop of the tour which took 160 guests representing 15 countries on an eight-day jaunt from Oklahoma City to San Antonio. Wiley said preparations were similar to hosting a production sale and guests were welcomed to the ranch’s fine facilities with pens trimmed out in the traditional ‘Ditch Witch orange and tan’ that has become iconic for the herd. “We had several head on display…Wyoming Wind x Duchess daughters, Stealth…it was a fun event,” he said. “We served a big breakfast to folks from all over the world and we had a good time.” The continued dedication of Mary’s M & M Charolais to producing quality individuals, has done exactly what’s it supposed to as customers keep returning for private treaty bull and female sales. “There’s just not a lot of Charolais breeders that have been in the business as long as she has,” praised Wiley of Mary’s dedication to the success of M & M and its longtime reputation for top seed stock offerings.
