Makin Time

Where Maternal Matters

1829 has produced over $300,000 in progeny sales and is the dam of Cerveza, Whizard, Unwound and some of the most prolific donors we own. Her progeny have proved to have the genetic power to pass their genetic merits down through the generations. They have left lasting impacts on programs across the country. Now let us introduce the newest card to an already stacked deck,

MAKIN TIME. Sired by the legendary Maternal Made and out of the great 1829 he has not only the genotype to rise above but his presence on the hoof is what makes us all stand back. His daughters were the highlight of this years Classic, it’s pretty easy to see why! Makin Time is setting himeself up to be the next great one that transmits all the power.

MAINE-ANJOU Headquarters

M. BLAKE NELSON EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT Greetings! I hope that you and your crew have a blessed Holiday season. 2021 is winding down and we have lived through transitions and change that are now the new normal. There are many things that we have to look forward to in 22’ - starting with the Cattlemen’s Congress, National Western Stock Show and the National Maine-Anjou Show and Annual Meeting at the Fort Worth Stock Show. Participation will be extremely high and the anticipation for these events has everyone ready for the New Year. This is definitely an interesting time for agriculture with input prices continually climbing and available labor low, this is tough for even the most efficient operations. Thankfully, we are seeing the reciprocal of this in cattle and commodity prices. Some say that 2022 could be a record breaking year for prices and we will be hoping that it is. Often, and particularly in the cattle business, when we see demand and prices increase the selection pressure and quality control decreases. Let us do our best to stay diligent in supplying the best product we can for the industry and our customers. The level of Maine-Anjou cattle currently available is gaining attention across the cattle industry and I feel we are about to JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 6

see more seedstock producers from other breeds sample and look into what we have to offer. Our genetic predictors continue to improve with accuracy and we have seen an increase in the use of genomic testing by our members and more raw data being submitted. All of these things are vital to Maine-Anjou gaining market share and we must continue striving for more if we want to see our breed grow. So, I say to you as breeders, great work, and please stay the course, I feel that we are on the correct path. The use of progressive genetics, leveraging science and genomics, and ramping up your local marketing are the ingredients needed to reach our destination. Traveling throughout the country there are so many people that are recognizing the Modern Maine-Anjou and what it can bring to the industry. The Cattleman’s Congress will be a great event for Maine-Anjou and we hope you consider joining us in Oklahoma City, January 6-9th. We start Thursday, January 6th with our sale cattle evaluation. Friday, January 7th will be the junior show and on Saturday, January 8th is the pen-of-three bull and heifer shows, the Bright Lights sale, and the Maine Exchange sale. Sunday, January 9th will be the open Maine-Anjou show.

The National Western will fire up the following week with the pen-of-three bull show on Friday, January 14th and the Power In the Pens preview and sale that afternoon. Then on Saturday, January 15th we will have the open and junior Maine-Anjou shows on the Hill. Then the last week in January we will move to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo for the National Maine-Anjou Show and Annual Membership Meeting. I hope that you will join us for this great event. For more information on all these events, please check out our homepage at maineanjou.org, Facebook, or contact us directly. As always, if we can assist you in anyway, please let us know. Thank you for a great year at AMAA and we hope to see you down the road! Take care, Blake MAINE-ANJOU- Vision, Vigor Value!

MAINE-ANJOU Commercial Connection

JOSHUA CRIBBS BREED IMPROVEMENT DIRECTOR Finishing up with Thanksgiving and headed toward Christmas brings about a time of year that is centered around gathering with family, friends and neighbors. It is a time that focuses on reflection of the year gone by. Like most of you, I was extremely happy to start 2021 and put 2020 and the change in lifestyle behind me. I was ready to focus on what this year would be for Maine-Anjou. 2021 brought about a new scenery for the Bright Light’s bull sale at Cattleman’s Congress, as well as the chance to have a junior national – an event that Lindsey was not only looking forward to, but one that we can write in the books as our best to date. She puts so much focus and dedication toward the junior program within the MaineAnjou family. For her to be able to use the new year to put on a show at full speed – that was something she was excited to do, and we were happy to support in any way we could – well, it showcased that we have the best youth director in the industry. The year only continued to get better for Maine-Anjou, especially when you look at the tremendous Fall calf sale season we witnessed. Those sales led us into the Fall JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 10

major show run, which was stacked with quality and fresh pedigrees. And now, we are quickly approaching deadlines for The Voice and the Bright Lights sale, along with pictures and videos for the sales at both Cattleman’s Congress and the National Western. It seems that the hype and excitement is continuing to build and we are extremely excited to offer a deep set of cattle in both the Bright Lights and Power In the Pens sales. This year, more than the previous couple, families and breeders alike are actively searching for high quality livestock. Looking through the entries and seeing cattle this Fall on my travels, I’m confident we are going to be able to answer that request for quality. And it is thanks to the breeders of our Association and their dedication to make the cattle both palatable and powerful. In the spirit of reflecting on this year gone by, I’m excited to continue to have the opportunity to work for you all, as a part of a group of employees that are dedicated to the breed and believe in what it can do. Looking ahead, I believe we are positioning ourselves to grow in belief of the breed and the quality of the cattle. In today’s beef cattle market, especially on the seedstock side, a true measure of breeder dedication is the active search for new and outcross Maine-Anjou bull genetics. So many times, it seems that the best females in one’s herd are dedicated to female production, in turn slowing genetic progress and never getting a chance to find

the male progeny that are needed to make strides. Since the beginning of my time at the American Maine-Anjou Association, I don’t recall a bull show at the North American that was as deep in quality or numbers as it was this year. The 2021 show was one that someone sitting in the stands could easily say, “I could use a number of these bulls to enhance my program and move forward.” It is said surround yourself with people smarter than you and look to them for guidance. I am fortunate enough to have many of those people in my life, and in particular my best friend in life. Ben and I had a conversation two weeks back where he made a statement that I believe speaks true to progress. He said, “Find high quality bulls you like and breed to them. Then cull hard, and you’ll make progress.” I’m extremely excited to think that we are moving to a point where we will have the opportunity to allow our breeders to make those decisions. As you and your families look toward Christmas and the New Year, I hope you find the time to reflect on the meaning of the season we are entering. I am truly grateful that you, as cattlemen and breed enthusiasts, continue to be dedicated to Maine-Anjou. Your support allows us the opportunity to be the people leading the charge forward into 2022. It’s Powerful. It’s Progressive. It’s modern Maine-Anjou! Joshua

Rigby Cattle A 4-year Drought Leads to Innovation in Utah

Mike, Jennifer, Jentrey & Thomas Rigby JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 14

Imagine Utah. What do you see? Perhaps Temple Square, the Great Salt Lake, the Moab Desert, the Salt Flats, mountain ranges that have felt the skis and snowboards of some of the world’s most famed athletes, and on and on. It can be hard to fathom, but those same winter destination ski slopes you think of… they also play host to cattle operations and are pivotal to the livestock industry within the State of Utah. Outside of tourism, livestock, and winter sports recreation, Utah’s ranges are home to many mines. In fact, Utah is the only producer of beryllium and magnesium metal in the United States. The state is also a major producer of bentonite, copper, gold, and vanadium. And this is where our journey starts, with mining. Mining leads us to an area just East of Spanish Fork, Utah, to a town called Indianola. There you’ll find a Maine-Anjou operation, run by the Rigby family. Mike and Jennifer, along with their children Jentrey and Thomas, are no strangers to agriculture. The family was recently honored as a Utah Century Farm. Mike said, “Although we’ve had the cattle a long time, I originally worked as a foreman in the mines.” He used that income to not only support his family, but to build the operation to a point where they felt financially secure enough to go full time raising cattle. Mike joked, “We decided we were going to make a go at it, and then that next year started a


drought – we haven’t seen any sizable rain in the last 4 years.” When discussing with Mike what led him to Maine-Anjou genetics, it was more by chance really. When they decided to scale up, he and Jennifer went to Gib Yardley’s to buy some Simmental breds. Upon looking through the cattle, they fell in love with Maine-Anjou genetics and decided they’d buy some of both breeds. They’d make a test run of what they felt would fit best. Mike said after a few years the Maine-Anjou cattle were still around, and they had their answer. To ranch in Utah, is to run cattle in a manner that pushes cattle to the edge of their capabilities. In most cases, and in that of the Rigby’s, they summer cattle on the mountain. They secure a permit for grazing with six other operations at an elevation of 9,000 feet featuring 20 miles of perimeter fence. When asked about issues with brisket disease at those higher elevations, Mike said – to date – he has never seen it in the Maine-Anjou cattle he runs. He will tell

anyone that the cattle are hardy and hold together, that they push them rather hard to perform. When asked how they gather cows off the mountain, Mike said, “When the first snow flies the cattle just come down the mountain into the valley.” And at that time in the valley is where they gather them up to take them home for the winter.” Much like the tough mindset of the cattle and their do-ability, Mike said he knew he was going to have to both diversify the operation and find a more economical way to feed cattle so he could be sure to remain in the beef business. Two years ago, before hiring trucking, the Rigby’s were paying $300/ton for hay and straw was costing them $175 to $200/ton. His cost of production was out of hand. He started to look for alternatives and found one with a company based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. HydroGreen is a farmer founded company built on making fresh feed daily with a minimal ecological footprint while

maximizing output. It is a hydroponic based system that can generate 3,500 pounds of barley a day at a youthful stage. The system is built on a fully automated, seven-day rotation complete with climate control. Mike says that the upfront cost is certainly stout, but even with purchasing straw and figuring in the cost of production, including the cost of the facility, he was able to bring his feed cost down to right around $56/ton. A stark difference from where he was just a few years ago. Mike says HydroGreen made the difference. The difference in the survival of their family’s operation, allowing Mike to continue doing the work he loves on a daily business. While cutting the input costs for the cattle has significantly changed the dynamic of their operation, to truly see profitability in the cattle industry Mike and Jennifer both recognized diversification is the only way. The Rigby’s now host a fall calf sale that is based around 4-H and FFA projects for regional youth. Maine-

Cattle on feed at Rigby Cattle Company, Fairview, Utah. The Rigby’s currently run 130 cows with a goal of increasing cow numbers to 200 head. Anjou genetics are the very base of their quality offering in that sale each October. Mike is also trained as an ultrasound technician, so he spends time breeding, preg checking, and ultra-sounding carcass data. Most recently and arguably the most exciting new venture for the Rigby’s is the development of a branded beef program. This facet of the operation only came about due to their utilization of the HydroGreen fodder machine and the ability it provides to efficiently grow a high quality and affordable feed resource. Established as Clear Creek Meats, the Rigby’s are focusing their efforts on building true farm to table, grass finished beef rooted in Maine-Anjou genetics. Mike

and Jennifer are dedicated agriculturists and ranchers focused on the sustainability of their operation and its growth. Mike said they kept back 40 replacement heifers and with their investment in NAGE Foundation, a purebred Maine Anjou bull they bought last spring from Nagel Cattle Company, they are poised and dedicated Maine-Anjou breeders that come at the beef business from a different angle but one that is focused all the same. Mike and Jennifer have found a way to take an area of the country that’s rugged and tough – they’ve molded it and built it to help make their dream and operation as long lasting as possible. Mike will be the first to tell you he loves the power of Maine-

Anjou genetics. He is certainly someone that is progressive in his production techniques, utilizing all the breed has to offer to his advantage!

Investing in Parent Verification Parent Verification is a process which utilizes DNA markers to exclude incorrect parent(s) By: Leoma Wells, Strategic Account Manager, Beef Cattle Genetics - Neogen The morning is chilly, and a newborn calf awaits us. As we begin to process the calf, the question arises, what sire do we write down in the calving notebook? Ninety percent of the time, the answer is straightforward. However, experts estimate 10% of pedigree’s are misreported into association databases. Let’s imagine that same bull calf goes on to be featured as lot 1 as a yearling and the buyer pays $25,000 for him. The buyer decides to collect the bull and submits a DNA sample to meet AI requirements. The results come back, and he doesn’t qualify to the AI sire noted on the pedigree. A follow-up DNA comparison indicates he qualifies to the pasture bull. I ask you; how would you like to receive that phone call from the buyer, notifying JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 20

you of the parentage error. With the parent verification technology available today, it is easy to locate these errors at an early age, before the animal enters the herd as a replacement or is sold as breeding stock. Being able to identify incorrect pedigrees via DNA testing becomes an insurance policy for your operation. A $20 parentage test can provide you with the peace of mind and full confidence to fully promote and endorse an animal. That on its own may be worth its weight in gold, or at the very least the animal’s genetic value. As modern technology has evolved, the method used for parent verification has as well. As we’ve moved from blood markers to microsatellites (STRs) and now to Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), the

confidence in the calls has increased, while the cost has continued to decrease. Today there are approximately 200 SNPs used to determine whether progeny excludes to a parent(s). In contrast, only 8-14 STR markers or 5-10 blood markers were used for comparisons. As different platforms become available, it is important to be aware the different marker sets are not comparable to one another. For example, if you tested a sire with American MaineAnjou Association (AMAA) in 2010, he likely would have STR parentage markers on file, whereas, if progeny were tested in 2021, they would instead receive SNP parentage markers. Because of this difference in technology, AMAA would be unable to compare to the sire’s STRs. To rectify this,


either the sire would need to be genotyped using the GGP100K (it is encouraged to have a genotype on sires in the genetic evaluation) which includes SNP parentage markers (sire could also only be SNP parentage tested) or the progeny would need to be sent through STR testing for the comparison to be made. The key take home message is that as a Maine-Anjou breeder, you should feel very confident in the current parentage platform and it’s level of accuracy. (See Figure 1) This is all great information, but you may be asking “why is parent verification vitally important for a registered breeder?”. If you are in the registered seedstock business, it is imperative to verify the pedigree and animal information submitted into the breed database is accurate. The genetic evaluation also utilizes the sire and dam’s EPD profiles to calculate the interim EPD profile on the progeny. If the sire, dam or both parents are incorrect, the individual’s EPDs and adjusted information will be impacted. In addition, buyers, whether registered or commercial, often make final selection decisions based upon pedigree, EPDs and animal information. Imagine selecting a bull for his elite phenotype and pedigree, only to find out he may be vastly different than advertised. Later you find out the situation could have been resolved via a $20 DNA test. As you can imagine, if EPDs are being used as a breeding or selection tool then parentage analysis is critical to maintain pedigree accuracy. (See Figure 2) Let’s not forget to acknowledge the importance of parent verification for show exhibitors, both youth and adults,

Figure 2: Parent Analysis and Capatilizing on your Genetic Investement

wishing to fully capitalize on their genetic investments. Armed with the parentage report displaying the results can add purchasing assurance and confidence everything will check out in the winner’s circle. We would strongly encourage if you’re currently calving out fall cows or getting ready to start with the spring crop, consider

submitting DNA samples through AMAA. Let’s use the knowledge and availability of DNA parentage testing to insure your herd for generations by ensuring the accuracy of pedigrees.

HELPFUL TIPS WHEN REGISTERING: To avoid delays in your registration work during our busy season follow the tips below. Double check that all blanks and information are correct and complete before mailing or submitting online. Things most commonly missed are: o Missing herd prefix and herd ID JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 22

o Birthdates o Date of sale o Name of animal o Payment Make sure the person that is registering the animal owns the dam with the exception of ET calves. If an ET calf, make sure the donor dam has DNA verified and has been PHA & TH tested with the results on file. If you are checking on testing work please e-mail Paige at rylee@amaapc.com. When calling or e-mailing please have the name and breeder number of the person submitting the work. When registering annual active dams for performance only animals please submit them online if you have the capabilities. This will help the registrar processing tremendously. We appreciate you and your business and want to make sure that the registration process runs as smooth as possible. Thank you in advance for your extra time in making sure all work is correct, complete and received in a timely manner.

REGISTRATIONS: The AMAA will assess a $5 fee for any registration work received by fax, e-mail or by mail. To avoid this fee, please log into your online Digital Beef account to complete all registration work. New forms can be downloaded from our main webpage under Digital Beef/ Registrations – Printable Forms. If you need assistance logging into your online account please contact us at maine@amaapc.com. If work is faxed or e-mailed it is the responsibility of the breeder to give

us a follow up phone call to make sure that the work is legible and to cover all fees. BLOCK REGISTRATION DISCOUNTS: Want to save on registration costs? Consider pre-paying for a block of registrations. The cost savings are as follows: • 15 head - 12% • 25 head - 15% • 50 head - 20% • 75 head - 25% • 100 head - 30% Blocks may only be used on animals under 13 months of age and may not be used on steers or foundation animals. Blocks will only be valid from January 1 - December 31 of each year. Any unused block registration numbers will expire. If you are interested in learning more about block purchases, please contact us at 816-431-9950. MAPP ENROLLMENT MAPP enrollment closed Dec. 15, 2021. FOUNDATION ANIMALS: Non-registered bulls and females must be entered as a foundation animal prior to progeny being registered. All current “P” (performance only) cattle will be grand-fathered into the program. If the sire is an AI sire and registered at another breed association, the pedigree and testing must be on file with the AMAA. The charge to add a sire pedigree will be a onetime charge of $40. If the AMAA finds that the pedigree has already been paid for by another breeder, the $40 charge will not be applied.


MAINE-ANJOU Announcements, News & Events

Dams registered at another breed association may also be added for a one-time charge of $25. See the new self-billing sheet for foundation fees.

registration number only, it will still be considered a rush as we still have to process the work to obtain the number.

ONLINE TRANSFERS: When transferring an animal online make sure there is not a member number already created for the buyer. Creating more than one number for an individual creates registration problems later. If you find the buyer in the system at a different address please notify the buyer first to confirm the address and then notify the AMAA office to update the account. It is always a good idea to always search for the buyer using the search tool before doing the work, that way if they have a different address it is caught before entering the registration and transfer. When creating a new profile for a buyer please make sure to never give a junior a farm name. Please enter the junior’s name on the farm line and also as the contact. RUSH ORDERS: If you are selling an animal, we ask that you register and transfer the animal in a timely manner to avoid extra charges and to assure buyers they are purchasing from a reputable business person. Rushes will be done in the order received; a rush fee is currently $50 (covers eight head). No work will be released until payment is complete. Rush work is processed ahead of the regular work that is received in our office and mailed by regular mail within one to two business days. We will do our best to complete rush work that is received in our office by 2 p.m. (Monday – Friday). There is no same-day turnaround. If requiring a

DNA, TH AND PHA REQUIREMENTS: Prior to registering any ET calves, all donor dams (including commercial or non-registered dams) must have DNA, TH and PHA on file in our office. Also, all AI sires are required to have the same on file. Therefore, our office will hold any ET registrations submitted out of dams without testing on file as well as all registrations out of AI sires that do not have complete testing on file. If the donor dam is deceased and not tested, we do require that the ET(s) have the tests done, in the absence of the donor’s records. To submit a sample through the association, please follow the DNA request instructions on our website, maine-anjou.org, under the Genetics/Testing tab. Samples must be on a hair card, blood card or TSU in order to be submitted. Sampling supplies can be ordered on our website under the Genetics/Testing tab. Animals must be in the AMAA herd book before testing can be requested. Please note that testing takes approximately 3-4 weeks from the time the sample arrives at the lab. We would like to start sending the test results by e-mail only, please make sure we have an up-to-date e-mail address for you, if applicable.

BULL CALF REGISTRATION: If registering a bull calf born after Jan. 1, 2014, it must be TH/PHA free by parentage or have testing completed prior to registering and on file with the AMAA. Carriers will no longer be registered, but may be entered as a foundation animal. All progeny out of a Foundation carrier bull needs to be tested free of that defect prior to registration. If registrations are submitted before testing has been completed, the animal will not be registered. Instead the animal will be given a performance number at a nonrefundable penalty charge of $10. Once the animal has been tested the registration may be completed at the regular rate. Please plan accordingly as testing can take up to three or four weeks. MAINE ANGUS PAPERS: If you wish to obtain a Maine Angus registration select the Maine Angus box when registering online. You will receive an error that AMAA staff must check the testing and percentage requirements, please make sure to validate your entry to save it so that AMAA staff can check the entry. If you submit a registration on paper, please put Maine Angus in the comment section of the application. If the animal does not qualify as a Maine Angus it will be recoded as a MaineTainer. A Maine Angus paper will be blue in color, have Maine Angus under the Maine logo, and will have MaineTainer across the center of the paper. The animal can be shown as a MaineTainer if there is not a Maine Angus division at the show. JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 23

DNA

Reminders

With spring sales right around the corner and many wrapping up the fall/winter show season it is time to start thinking about registrations and DNA! There are a few changes coming to the AMAA DNA this year. Please read below to stay up to date with all of the DNA rules and changes.

AMAA DNA CHANGES STARTING JANUARY 1, 2022 • NEW – All samples turned in on a hair card will be charged an additional $5 per sample starting January 1, 2022. • NEW – The Panel #3 has dropped to $95 and this is the most inclusive test offered through AMAA. With this test you will receive 100 thousand DNA markers which includes parentage as well as genomics. The panel also includes several defect tests including TH and PHA. This is the recommended choice for those wishing to improve their herd. • AMAA will accept blood cards, tissue sampling units (TSU), semen straws or hair cards. • All bulls born after January 1, 2014 must be TH and PHA free by test or pedigree in order to register. If a bull is found to be a carrier, he can register as a foundation or performance bull only, but all progeny will have to test free of that defect in order to register. Foundation bulls will carry their Maine-Anjou percentage to their offspring. • All A.I. sires regardless of breed and/or commercial, must have DNA, TH and PHA on file prior to registering any progeny. • All donor dams must have DNA, TH and PHA on file prior to registering their ET calves. If a donor is dead before a sample was procured, you must DNA, TH and PHA test all ET calves in order to register them. JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 26

I hope to return to my family’s operation with hopes of growing the purebred cow herd with hopes of raising more bulls and show calves. I enjoy the comradery and friendship between everyone on the board. I especially enjoy getting to work the ring at shows especially at Junior Nationals. My time on the board

has allowed me to gain connections and learn more about the breed and industry as a whole. Being on the board has allowed me to find my true passion for the cattle industry especially the Maine breed. I am looking forward to attending the upcoming shows and meeting even more people who are as passionate about the cattle industry as me. I would like to remind everyone about the National Youth Leadership Conference in Kansas City from March 31st to April 1st as it will be a great networking and learning experience.

MAINE WHAT IS MAINE ANGUS?

The Maine Angus program is an initiative created by the American Maine-Anjou Association (AMAA) to showcase the complementation of Maine-Anjou genetics when crossed with Angus or Red Angus cattle. This program will reveal Maine-Anjou cattle’s ability to enhance feed efficiency and red meat yield when placed on British based genetics. This program should provide seedstock that will increase production and carcass yield through heterosis. The name Maine Angus is both strong and informative by stating exactly what breeds are present in said animal. The standard requirement is that both parents must be registered at the AMAA, American Angus Association (AAA) or Red Angus Association of America (RAAA). This will provide confirmed lineage and genetic information along with valuable EPDs. Through a partnership with the AAA our EPDs will be updated with the latest genetic evaluation by the AAA which will provide the breeders and customers the best genetic prediction available. This program is focused on producing quality registered offspring that will aid in the incorporation of MaineAnjou genetics into the mainstream of the USA beef sector.

PROGRAM STANDARDS

Maine Angus refers to cattle with the following characteristics: • The animal will have between 3/8 Maine-Anjou to 5/8 Maine-Anjou blood and have between 3/8 registered Angus to 5/8 registered Angus and/or registered Red Angus blood. JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 50

• Both parents must be registered at the AMAA, AAA or RAAA to confirm lineage. • Qualifying cattle can have no more than 1/8 of non-registered blood or other breeds. • A registered Maine Angus bull must be proven free of genetic defects PHA and TH. Depending on the Maine Angus bull’s genetic makeup, the individual must also be proven free of known Angus lethal genetic defects (Ex. AM, NH and CA) and/or known lethal Red Angus genetic defects (Ex. AM, NH, CA and OS) whether determined by pedigree or test. • A registered Maine Angus female must be proven free of PHA and TH, whether identified by pedigree or test.

MAINE ANGUS COLOR STANDARDS

All qualifying individuals will be predominately solid black or red in color. White markings are only allowed on the underline and switch of the tail. Feet and legs must be solid black or red. • NOTE: All Maine Angus animals that do not meet the color requirment, but were registered prior to Jan. 1, 2019, will retain their Maine Angus papers. They will not be able to exhibit/show in the Maine Angus division, but are still eligible to show as MaineTainers. • If an animal is registered Maine Angus, but is found to not meet the color requirements, they will be reverted to a MaineTainer registration.

the first time I stepped into Freedom Hall, I was determined that we would get a piece of the NAILE Supreme Heifer Show before my show career was over. God’s hand was on my last junior show. Our entire crew felt God’s presence as we finally accomplished this goal. Mom and Dad, Mason and Catelyn, Craig and Steph and Cody and Lindsay thank you for every single way you all poured into this dream. You have supported and encouraged me to follow my dreams in and out of the show ring while reminding me that no success or failure is possible without God’s presence. Thank you for raising me in this industry. I’m thankful for y’all and so many others! -Whitney
