CHAROLAIS Our View From “The Hill”

It’s the least we can do

By the time this issue of the Charolais Journal reaches your mailbox, the

registered seedstock sector of the beef industry will gather in Denver for the 111th edition of the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. On “The Hill”, the bright lights of the show ring shine on approximately 20 breeds of cattle and host a massive trade show and exhibits of virtually every animal found on a farm. Each breed will be represented by phenotypic specimens’ exhibitors believe that best represents their respective breed’s genetics. The winning result is a payday for some as well as tremendous promotional opportunities for everyone and production agriculture. Take a stroll down the steep hill, walk under the railroad bridge and into “The Yards”, the atmosphere is different but equally exciting. The old, iconic, stockyard pens are converted into bright, colorful displays of groups of bulls that will compete in pen and carload shows. Again, the breeds are

non-local sources. We simply cannot underestimate the value of historic, iconic livestock shows like Denver, Houston and Fort Worth to present our ever-shrinking story to the average citizen both here and internationally. Each host large international contingencies coming to the U.S. to learn more about the efficient, genetically superior meat animal production. Social pressure continues to demand that we must do better and we can’t turn a deaf ear. While the pressure to change production and animal husbandry practices often originates from a source outside of agriculture, with no earthly idea about how food gets from our farms and ranches to their table, we can’t ignore it. It is critical that producers evaluate production practices, be aware of the social implications, yet continue to do the right things for the right reasons.

“Social pressure continues to demand that we must do better and we can’t turn a deaf ear.”

represented by the best phenotypic specimens. These days, for some breeds, data is also factored into a multi-person judging system. The alleys and pens in The Yards are decorated with hundreds of posters and banners anchored to fences and makeshift poles, all promoting family owned ranches and spring sales around the country. The weather may be unpredictable and range from a balmy, almost spring day to blizzard conditions. But the activity and interest in the beef industry is on full display. Many believe the tenor of the attitudes during the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) to be a bellwether for the upcoming year’s market in the seedstock business. The city of Denver has hosted this magnificent event partly in celebration to agriculture, the industry that “brought them to the dance” over a century ago. Today, the NWSS is almost larger than the city of Denver. During the 16-day run, nearly three-quarters of a million people will pass through the turnstiles, many from the city with no other exposure to agriculture. School buses will bring hundreds of youngsters to see cattle, horses, sheep, hogs, goats and dogs; many seeing a live farm animal for the first time. Approximately 60% of the $115 million economic impact is attributed to

Less than 2% of the U.S. work force is involved in agriculture, yet we have developed the largest fed cattle industry in the world and are the world’s largest producer of high quality, grain fed beef for domestic and export. Family farming and ranching operations understand change. If it wasn’t for change, in fact a tectonic shift, beef production in America would have been rendered obsolete decades ago. New breeds, new science and technology and an entrepreneurial spirit have been the guiding light for us all. It’s the same spirit that brought Charolais to America in 1934. Charolais beef producers can check many boxes for having “been there and done that” toward improving the end-product consumers enjoy, while leaving sustainable genetics and a sound business model on the farm or ranch We’ve said it before and it bears repeating. If you have an opportunity to attend a national event such as the National Western Stock Show, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo or the Fort Worth Stock Show, we encourage you to show up. It’s the least we can do to promote the best that we do.

Benefits of Charolais Bulls in Commercial Herds


By Heather Smith Thomas

here are a number of advantages when using Charolais bulls in commercial herds. Many ranchers utilize Charolais as a terminal cross to produce superior calves. Doug Rogers (Rogers Bar HR Charolais in Collins, Mississippi) has been in business since 1959 and sells about 250 Charolais bulls each year, almost all of them to commercial cattleman. “The reason commercial producers should use a Charolais bull is that they always get heavier weaning weights. Today with lower prices per pound, you need more pounds to make the same amount of money,” he explains. “With Charolais cross calves you get good weaning weights, good weight gain and good yearling weights. If the cow herd is some other breed, you get the hybrid vigor on top of that. Documentation from studies at Colorado State University show at least 60 pounds more at weaning. This makes a lot of money for the producer and is one of the biggest values, in increased weaning weight,” says Rogers. “Another plus is performance in the feedlot. Average daily gain and feed conversion is also better. These cattle don’t have as much fat, so it takes less energy to put the weight on. The gain is in red meat instead of fat,” he says. Muscle and meat is what you want, not fat. Feed efficiency is worth a lot, especially when faced with increased feed costs. “A feedlot owner is trying to tweak everything possible, in order to be more profitable. If he can buy less feed and get the same amount of weight, it’s a good deal for him.” This is one reason Charolais-cross calves are in high demand. “Uniformity in the calves is another plus. Nowadays, just because a calf is black doesn’t mean it is Angus. Everything has gone black. There are black Simmental, black Gelbvieh, black anything. But there is true uniformity in the calves when you use a Charolais bull; you know it’s a Charolais-cross calf. They have a distinctive

look, so you know what you are getting. When you buy a black calf, however, you don’t know what you are getting.” Black has covered up a lot of other genetics. “Another nice thing about Charolais in our part of the country is that they can handle the heat better. Today, for instance it’s 95 degrees with 95% humidity. A Charolais-cross calf is very heat tolerant (unlike black cattle) and can handle the heat far better than anything else in the Southeast. The Charolais bull will still be out working in the hottest part of the day, breeding cows, while other bulls are lying around in the shade. The Charolais bulls cover more cows, in our part of the country,” says Rogers. Buddy Westphal, Valley View Charolias Ranch (near Polson, Montana) has been selling most of his 200-plus bulls per year to commercial breeders for the past 48 years and feels the biggest value in breeding commercial cows to Charolais bulls is heterosis. “We’ve known about heterosis for a long time, even before I was in college at Colorado State University when this was the big buzz word. At that, the focus on hybrid vigor was for hogs; people discovered that crossbreeding hogs produced healthier, hardier animals with greater gainability. With crossbreeding, the meat was more palatable and the animals grew better and were ready to harvest sooner,” he says. “Now we’ve seen amazing gains in crop production through hybridization of corn and other crops, especially in how quickly we can grow it, and higher yields. We’ve also seen unbelievable production with chickens and other livestock. It astonishes me that the beef industry has been so slow to take advantage of heterosis,” he says. “The idea that black is beautiful took over much of the industry. But green is better (meaning money). People need to see that they can produce more green if they use hybrid vigor. For instance, an average-quality Charolais bull can increase the production of a low-average cow of any other breed, yielding more pounds at weaning, producing a calf that will go into the feedlot and gain better, and also have better carcass value. To me, the whole goal of beef production is to have a calf that can wean at 700plus pounds, go right to the feedlot and gain 4 to 5 pounds a day, and be harvested at less than 365 days of age. That young, tender beef will be more palatable and the input of production (cost of feed) will be much less than for an animal that takes longer to get to harvest weight,” says Westphal. Every day that a calf is growing and eating costs money for feed. “With interest rates down from what they were at some points, producers may not look at this so much, but back in the days when we were looking closely at our investment in that calf and paying 10 to 15% interest, the important thing was getting them grown up and harvested as quickly and as young as possible,” he explains. “This is a big plus in what the Charolais bull will do for you, in having a bigger weaned calf, with more gainability. We’ve proven that, along with carcass yield. With my purebred Charolais heifers we have produced 93% prime or choice grade with a 66% carcass yield. That’s a lot of beef and opportunity for profit! And with hybridization (using the Charolais on another breed of cow) you can even do better than that,” he says. There is no better terminal cross. “This is why I got into the Charolais business in the first place. My genetics professor and mentor was Tom Sutherland. He was born in Scotland but spent time in France (where he

learned about all the continental breeds, including Charolais) and then came to Colorado State University. He said there is no better breed to cross with British cattle (Hereford and Angus) here in the U.S. So when I got out of college I looked for a ranch that had Charolais cattle—and was fortunate to come here 48 years ago, where the former owner had already started a herd of Charolais.” Sutherland’s influence, and knowledge of hybrid vigor and what a Charolais bull can do, especially on Angus or Angus cross cows, helped set the course Westphal took in trying to produce the best Charolais bulls for his commercial customers. “The Herford-Angus cross is good, but with the continental cattle like Charolais there is an even greater amount of heterosis. Also with a parent like Charolais the offspring have more size, structure and gainability,” he explains. “The superior gain in the feedlot and feed efficiency have been documented by years of research and experience. My own cattle are returning a pound of gain for 5.1 pounds of feed, and this feed conversion enables a producer to make money, especially when these animals are gaining 4 to 5 pounds per day,” he says. “And with the hybrid vigor produced by the Charolais bull, you eliminate yield grade 3’s and 4’s because you are getting lean carcasses. My average on the last heifers we fed was 2.2. You’ve got to eliminate the overfat 3’s and 4’s,” he explains. “The good news is that the Charolais breed has overcome the problems with calving that we saw back in the days when I started. If you end up with calving problems today you are going to the wrong breeder and getting the wrong bloodlines. I sell a number of bulls every year that are used effectively on black, black bally, red and red bally heifers as heifer bulls because of their reliability, ease of calving, and the fact that the producer can take those calves (from first calf heifers) and market them the same as calves from the rest of the herd. They are all crossbred Charolais calves that can go in the same pen and do the same job (as weaned calves),” says Westphal. This is a big market advantage for the rancher, being able to run just one color of bulls and have a uniform calf crop—and not have to sort back the calves from first calf heifers. “We see some breeds where disposition is a problem. We’ve made advances in Charolais in this trait, and many Charolais cattle today are very gentle. I have bulls that are so docile that kids can get on them and ride!” he says. Many producers now have black cattle, due to the great marketing campaign by the Angus breed, but they don’t yield as much meat as a Charolais. “With the prices we are seeing today, you need a lot of pounds, and it doesn’t matter what color the cattle are; the only thing selling is pounds. The disappointing thing is that the beef industry has known about hybrid vigor for so long, yet we are still far behind in utilizing it,” he says. “The benefits become obvious when a Charolais bull accidentally goes through someone’s pasture and breeds a few cows, and then you see the Charolais-cross calves that are so superior to the rest of the calves in that pasture! Another way ranchers learn about this is to look across the fence to see that the neighbor is weaning another 75 pounds of calf per cow, even when the neighbor’s pasture is poorer!” Westphal saw a lot of this enlightenment during the past year. “I gained several customers who had never used a Charolais bull before, but they came to my sale because they had seen what their neighbor was doing.” The Angus breed has done a phenomenal job of marketing, and many creative things, but the Charolais cross will increase weaning weight, gainability, carcass yield, ribeye area, marbling ability and other carcass traits. “The Angus cow makes continued on page 54

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. Manufactured for Merial, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA.

THE WEIGHT GAIN IS REAL. Go ahead, blink.

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 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.

Directors By Area

Hey everyone! I am Abbee Carnes, and I am currently serving as your Area 7 Director and Treasurer for the American-International Junior Charolais Association. I am nineteen years old and currently attending Oklahoma State University with a major in Agribusiness and a minor in Agriculture Communications. I was very honored when I was chosen to serve on the Junior Board for this organization because it was such a big step for me in my agricultural career. I was not raised in an agriculture family like most kids in the cattle industry are. I began showing cattle my freshman year of high school through my FFA program and have been hooked ever since! My showing career has not always been surrounded by Charolais cattle. I first began showing Hereford, then crossbred, and for the past three years I have shown Charolais composites. I knew I had found the breed that I wanted to be involved

The rest of that week was one that I will never forget and will cherish for the rest of my life. The next summer I decided to run for the Junior Board. The week of the Junior National in 2015 I knew what to expect and was fully involved! When I got elected on the board, I knew that I had become a part of something that would teach me qualities that I would use for the rest of my life. From the time I was elected, we began to brainstorm on how we would make the next Junior National better for the juniors. I love Junior Nationals because it is one week that I get to see what the junior members have to offer and how they have spent their year on the family farm. But Junior Nationals isn’t just a regular week to the Junior Board members, it is also a week for us to see how all of our hard work has paid off over the year. Just in the first year of serving on the board, I have learned more leadership, public speaking and personal relationship

“ ...even though we as Junior Board members are supposed to be role models to them, the juniors may teach us something that we never expected to learn.”

in for the rest of my life when I went to my first Junior National! I attended my first Junior Nationals in 2014, where it was held in Hutchinson, Kansas. I walked into the barns not knowing many people and felt like a small fish in a big ocean. All my emotions were just ready to fall out of me. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for it at that point of my show career because I had only been showing for two years. I was worried about making a good first impression on everyone because my family has always told me, ‘You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.’ I’ve also learned from them to smile, be polite and most importantly to be myself. My true colors will come out soon enough, so don’t fake anything. While trying to think in my best interest, I listened to my parents and before I knew it I had friends from all over the country. The people in the Charolais organization were so welcoming and never treated me like a stranger. Little did I know I was talking to a lot of the Junior Board. From that moment on, I looked up to them as role models and knew I wanted to be a Junior Board member one day. 32  

skills than I have in my nineteen years of living. The junior association is one that each young person needs to experience in their life because of the relationships that you build and the many qualities that you can learn. Junior Nationals is more than just a week of cattle showing – it is one that many people may be able to reconnect with long lost friends. It also is one that the juniors look forward to all year long because it is when they get to show off all the hard work that they have put into their cattle. The juniors hold a very special place in my heart because sometimes even though we as Junior Board members are supposed to be role models to them, they may teach us something that we never expected to learn. The Charolais organization is one that I hope I will be able to raise my kids in one day because I know what great opportunities will await them in their future. There are a lot of things that parents may question for their kids’ well-being, but one thing is for sure–the Charolais organization isn’t one of them. I can’t wait to see all of you at the 2017 Junior National in Grand Island, Nebraska. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

Wakefield Farms Family Farming Since 1937 — Charolais Seedstock Since 1962 A name you can trust for Performance Tested Charolais and Red Angus Bulls

For today’s bull buyers, there is a tremendous amount of “Fluff” to sort through when choosing who to buy bulls from. We try to stick to the facts! Fact 1 – NO ONE has produced more Charolais bull test winners in the Midwest than us! Fact 2 – A true measure of your cattle is putting them in a centralized test and comparing them against other cattle. This is where performance data is most accurate (not on farm tests). If you are looking for bulls that are bred to be tough, built to last, with second to NONE dispositions and backed by 50+ years of strict culling with Performance Data, not “Fluff,” give us a call!

DA MS MARION 328 P ET Marion has proven herself to be one of the most powerful females in the Charolais breed. 100 progeny are currently registered with AICA with many more to come. She was a tremendous show animal in her younger days, winning her class at the National Charolais Show in Denver and then going on to be the dam of winners at the National Charolais Show in Louisville. Her progeny were the Reserve Champion Produce of Dam, the Reserve Champion Junior Get of Sire and the Junior Calf Champion Bull. Earlier she had produced the Reserve Champion Bull at the Royal Breeders Classic in Kansas City. One of her daughters sold for $20,000 in the National Sale. At 13 years of age we had the opportunity to sell Marion to Wild Indian Acres and she is still producing well for them. We still have embryos from several different matings for sale.

Later we bought her full sister, HPF Ms Marion 044 ET from Wright Charolais and Wild Indian Acres. She was Champion Cow/Calf pair at the American Royal. As a first calf heifer, her calf had an adjusted 205 day weight of 1068 lbs. Her 3 bull calves to date have averaged a fantastic 881 lbs. She is 7 years younger than Marion 328 and a tremendous female in her own right. We already have embryos in the tank from her!

continued from page 23 a really good cross but she needs a Charolais bull to increase the ‘green’ from her calves. And you can always tell it’s a Charolais cross by its color. You can take a herd of multiple-colored cows and get a very uniform calf crop with Charolais bulls. They can always be marketed as Charolais crosses and the buyers know what they are getting, “he says. Bill Romans, Romans Ranches Charolais (located near Westfall, Oregon) runs 600 purebred Charolais cows, 350 commercial cows and sells about 150 Charolais bulls annually at their ranch (operated by Bill and Cindy Romans and their son Jeff and Julie and family) and says there are many advantages in utilizing heterosis. “A typical example of the outstanding quality that can be obtained are the calves produced by a Sim-Angus cow bred to a Charolais bull. That’s what won our County Fair here this year and in the past. This makes a phenomenal cross!” says Romans. The terminal cross using a Charolais bull makes a superior feeder calf. “We all had Herefords when I was growing up. Then people brought in black Angus bulls and the black bally cows were one of the best thing that ever happened to the beef industry because of the heterosis from that F1 cross” Romans says. “The You can take a herd of Angus breed has done a tremendous job, and the majority of cattle producers in the U.S. today are multiple-colored cows and get running straight black Angus cows. They know a very uniform calf crop with they are missing out on the benefits of heterosis, but running one breed takes less management and Charolais bulls. time,” he says. “Most continental breeds have gone to percentage black cattle to make heterosis available to producers who want some in their herds, but this makes it hard to tell what breed you are looking at when you drive by a pasture. The nice thing about Charolaiscross calves is that you can always tell what they are because the white gene is dominate and the buyers know what they are getting,” says Romans. “One of the economic benefits of using Charolais as a terminal sire is you don’t have to pay top price for the best Angus bull. You can buy an average-priced Charolais bull and get more pounds of calf—a lot more for your money—because of heterosis. Some ranchers run all black cattle and buy the top black bulls in order to top the market with premiums. I did the math, and they are not making any more money than someone buying a less expensive Charolais bull. If a bull sires 30 calves a year, and you are paying top price for the best Angus bulls to get the premium, you aren’t making any more money per calf than we are, using averaged-price Charolais bulls. The premium for black calves is simply paying its way but not making more profit. They receive more for calves at sale time, but have to pay more for those bulls so it just averages out,” he explains. If ranchers are not getting a really good premium and are giving up 50 pounds per calf, they can’t afford to not utilize heterosis. “Simplot Livestock understands this. They are running black baldy cows and using Charolais bulls. They have one ranch where they just develop heifers, to get that F1 cross. They also started building their own Charolais herd focusing on feed efficiency and it’s amazing what they have done, in producing exceptional feedlot calves,” Romans says.

– “In commercial herds, the Charolais-cross cow (which very few ranchers are using) as a maternal cross is the best-kept secret in the beef industry,” says Romans. “Not every Charolais-cross cow will be ideal, but we are breeding for a slightly smaller cow with lots of ‘middle’ which makes her very feed efficient. When you select replacement heifers, you should not pick the biggest ones; you want moderate frame size. But with the Charcross cow you can breed her to a number of different breeds of bulls and have great calves. You can breed her black, or to a Charolais, or whatever you wish,” says Romans. The advantage of the crossbred cow is her hybrid vigor, hardiness and longevity. “These Char-cross cows have great stayability and are very fertile. Mostfolks who have straight black cattle know that they are missing out on heterosis, but they’ve been getting a premium for black. Producers who have spent a lot of money on Angus bulls have been getting a premium for their heifers as replacements (keeping their best, selling the others as replacements). Yet they all know that they are giving up 50 pounds or more on their steer calves,” he says. Even more importantly, they are giving up the heterosis on their cows. Research has shown that a crossbred cow produces 18% more beef in her lifetime. “A rancher we know in central Oregon is trying to let his cows do the work and not have to feed much hay, wintering out more. He has kept a few Charolais-cross heifers. He told me 5 years ago that they go through the winter better, and by spring they are two body condition scores higher than the average of his black cows. If you are not running crossbred cows you are missing out on a lot of advantages. Everybody knows this, but most ranchers are not doing it,” says Romans.

“In commercial herds, the Charolais-cross cow (which very few ranchers are using) as a maternal cross is the best-kept secret in the beef industry,” says Romans.
