CHAROLAIS A rising tide lifts all boats. Opportunities look bright.
The author of the statement, “a rising tide lifts all boats” remains
anonymous. Politicians have used the adage to debate economic issues for generations. The general inference is that as macroeconomic issue improves, the trickle down effect is good for the majority. The economic improvement in the beef industry resulting from a historic market is tangible and measurable. Less tangible is the “attitude adjustment” experienced by most everyone in the wake of accelerated prosperity. As 2014 comes to a close, AICA will record one of the most productive years in recent history. It’s important to recognize the accomplishments and applaud the efforts of every producer choosing Charolais as an important component of their beef production equation. Last month, we reported a $1,101 increase in the average paid for a Charolais bull from 2013 to 2014. The heightened interest could be felt during the entire week of the National Western and has been sustained through the entire spring and fall sale seasons. The 36th National Charolais Sale and 46th National Show held in late
information such as weaning weights, carcass data, breeding records. Genomic tests are a compliment to the phenotypic information and can provide similar accuracy equal to 7-15 head of progeny. You will find a Charolais Genomic Q&A in this issue of the Charolais Journal. Robert Williams, Director of Breed Improvement & Foreign Marketing, has offered a brief explanation of the AICA guidelines for Genomic EPDs and how they have been incorporated into the 2015 Sire Summary. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this important technology. Contact Robert for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our marketing efforts through www.CharolaisUSA.com and social media continue to generate more interest and traffic. Visits to the website in 2014 increased more than 20% when compared to the same period one year ago. Launched just over a year ago, the AICA Facebook® page continues to be very active. Social media has proven to be a tremendous, cost effective asset to communicate the results of show and sale information in near real time. Soon, www.CharolaisUSA.com will have a new, more visitor friendly website. With input from the Advertising and Marketing Committee, AICA staff
“...every tool available in the industry, is available to you to continue to make improvements.” October, during the fall meetings and American Royal was arguably the best ever. A whopping $14,478 average was an exciting part of several days of activities. Almost without exception, individual breeders across the country have experienced similar success in interest prior to the sale, increased attendance and more money at the end of the day. Accomplishments inside the bricks and mortar of the AICA office are equally ambitious. Long awaited computer upgrades have been successfully completed. The enhanced registry system is up and running smoothly. As we close the books on 2014, we are pleased to report the financial success of AICA as well. The Board of Directors deserves a lot of credit for their conservative approach to fiscal management the past several years. Although the fiscal management of AICA is paying dividends now, we will move forward with the same sense of fiduciary responsibility to members. Possibly the most exciting accomplishment will be realized with the Spring 2015 Sire Evaluation Report. For the first time, the expected progeny differences (EPDs) will be enhanced by genomic results generated by 50K technology. Genomic enhanced EPDs increase the predictability for the traits of economic importance, which can be particularly beneficial on young animals. Genomic tests are not a substitute for documenting phenotypic
is in the process of a redesign of the current website. We continue to evaluate the use and structure of the website as more members use the online registration tools. As we close the book on 2014 and open a new one for 2015, the opportunities have never looked brighter. Some ag economists are indicating that barring a catastrophic, unforeseen event, the demand for beef will not diminish and, in fact, will increase globally. The beef production sector will continue to see a very bullish market for the remainder of this decade. The price differential between commodity beef and USDA Choice and Prime will continue to incentivize the commercial producer to use the newest tools and technology to supply the processor with more higher quality beef. If you are an AICA member or a commercial producer influencing your cowherd with Charolais genetics, rest assured you are relevant. You can also rest assured every tool available in the industry, is available to you to continue to make improvements. None of us are naïve enough to believe this exceptional marketing environment will last forever. However, until it changes, we all can move a little faster to take every advantage of the opportunities today.

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.

New Features for the Online Registration System
AICA’s online system has several newly enhanced features. Log in with your breeder number and password and you’ll find additional reports listed under the “My Reports” tab. The new Sire/Dam Performance Summary gives options to print lifetime records on individual animals or all active sires and or dams. You also have the option to get reports by calving year. Many other reports are available including performance reports and ultrasound reports. Ultrasound barn sheets can be generated using the report function. You have the option to print barn sheets by calving year or by individual animals. Printing quick copies of individual certificates is another useful enhancement of the “reports” function. Members use the Herd EPD reports to keep up on the most current numbers for the animals in their herd. This list can be sorted by sex and listed in several different orders. There is also the option to choose a birth date range. Under the “tools” tab, you will find a new “Data Export” button. This data export gives you the flexibility to export data on animals in your herd and use those data files in your own management packages. You can download and save the files directly to your computer in a CSV (can be opened in Excel) format. There are many options within this feature including selecting the type of animal to export and specific data. AICA using GeneSeek
The AICA is now using GeneSeek for parentage testing, contact Marilou Wegner to request a kit. The kit is specific to the animal being tested. AICA rules require AI sire and donor cows be tested if they have not been. AI Sires
AI Sires used “out of herd” must be DNA tested before calves can be registered. Check the bull’s record to make sure the DNA work has been done before submitting registration papers. AICA rules require signatures on bulls you do not own. Signatures can be submitted online, fax, mail or e-mail. AICA Mail
AICA no longer gets mail at the post office box. Please make sure all correspondence to AICA or the Charolais Journal is addressed to: 11700 NW Plaza Circle, Kansas City, Mo, 64153.

Genomic EPD AICA Guidelines for Publishing
Published, refers to an EPD which is printed by AICA: registration paper, internet, breeder performance reports, breeder inventory reports, etc. Guidelines for publishing EPD currently • Currently AICA computes EPD for calves reported by members enrolled in either PPR or WHR, the AICA performance programs. This is accomplished by only allowing performance data to be submitted by members enrolled on one of those two programs. EPD for registered sires and dams of these calves are computed and published regardless of the PPR or WHR status. • Additionally, EPD are reported back to the breeder and published only for those calves that are registered. The exception to this is that EPD are reported back to breeders for non-registered calves when the breeder is enrolled on WHR. • Animals which are parents (i.e. have progeny in the evaluation) have EPD published with a numeric accuracy value between 0 and 1 (parental EPD) • Animals that are non-parents which have data as part of a contemporary group have EPD published with an accuracy value equal to “BK” (non-parent EPD).
Refer to pages 26 and 27 in this issue for Genomic Enhanced EPD FAQs.
J A N U A R Y 2015
• Pedigree estimates are computed for those animals without a published EPD only if their Sire and Dam (or Maternal Grand Sire) have a non-parent or parental EPD published. (i.e. either a BK or numeric accuracy value).
Guidelines for publishing Genomic EPD • Given a 50K Genotype and MBV is available for the animal the following guidelines apply. • Same basic guidelines follow as for non-genomic EPD in addition to the following. • Animals with a genomic enhanced EPD will be published with a numeric accuracy value. This includes non-parent animals that would typically receive a “BK” for accuracy. Genomic-enhanced Logo: • Genomic-enhanced Logo will be published on internet animal page and can be used by breeders when the EPD is published in advertising, sale catalogs, etc. • Genomic-enhanced EPD will be published for all registered animals owned by breeders enrolled on PPR or WHR. • Genomic-enhanced EPD will be published and available to the breeder for non-registered animals owned by breeders enrolled on WHR when they are the progeny of enrolled females. • Genomic-enhanced EPD will be published for any registered animal with an EPD computed as part of the Charolais National Cattle Evaluation. • Interim Genomic Enhanced EPD will only be computed and published for PPR registered animals and/or non-registered animals when those breeders are enrolled in WHR. Genomic-enhanced Plus Logo: • For those animals with a birth and weaning record submitted within the appropriate age window for weaning to be adjusted to 205 days a Genomic Plus logo will be available to so designate those animals with a genotype and performance data reported to AICA. • Additionally for those sires and/or dams with birth and weaning records for progeny included in the AICA genetic evaluation the Genomic Plus logo will be available to so designate those animals with a genotype and performance data reported to AICA. Interim EPD • Interim EPD are calculated during the time period between bi-annual Charolais National Cattle Evaluations. An interim EPD is designated with an “I” as the accuracy value. • Interim EPD are computed for calves within a contemporary group using available performance information and parental EPD. Interim EPD calculations do not result in a change in the parental EPD. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

G. William (Bill) Thompson, 76, of White Cottage Saturday, died April 26, 2014 at Grant Medical Center as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident. Bill died peacefully surrounded by his family. He was born on June 7, 1937, son of Glenn G. Thompson and Catherine (Katie) Schramm Thompson Paynter. Bill graduated from Zanesville High School in 1955, Muskingum College in 1959 and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in 1960. He was a lifelong resident of White Cottage and joined his father in the family business at the William Thompson & Son Funeral Home. After the death of his father in 1969, Bill became the owner and operator of the business as 3rd generation, until he was joined by his sons Tim and Todd as 4th generation funeral directors. The family business has carried on a proud legacy for 118 years. Bill is survived by his wife of 54 years, Nancy Clarke Thompson. He is also survived by five children and their spouses. Bill made a huge impression on everyone he came into contact with, whether at the funeral home, where he followed his call to be a servant disciple to others in need, or within the many organizations to which he gave his time and talents. Bill’s loves were his family and participating in all his children and grandchildren’s activities, showing Charolais cattle and riding quarter horses, pitching fastpitch softball where he was known as “Billy T”, and being a faithful servant by helping others cope with the grief of losing a family member. His compassion, grace and skill as an embalmer and funeral director are known far and wide. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Obituary

Herbert Hecht, age 94 of Pequot Lakes, MN, passed away on October 27, 2014. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Lenora, and his second wife, Maggie. Herb and Lenora had two sons, Harlin (Sue) of Paynesville, and Arvid of Pequot Lakes, along with 3 grandsons: Howard (Laura) of Groton, Massachusetts, Mark (Becky) of Paynesville and Dale (Jill) of Grove City; along with 7 great grandchildren. He also has several stepchildren and step-grandchildren from his marriage with Maggie. Herb served as a director on several boards including the Pine River School Board, the Pillager Creamery Board, several church boards and the Maple Township Board. He drove a school bus for 23 years for the Pine River School District. During the first half of his life he had a top dairy herd. Later he switched to a commercial cow-calf beef herd at which time he partnered on the farm with his son, Arvid. They are well known for producing high performance Charolais cross feeders for over 50 years. They were recognized as the 1996 Commercial Producer of the year by the MN/WI Charolais Association. Services were Saturday, November 1, at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Pequot Lakes. Burial in Stoney Brook Cemetery, rural Pequot Lakes.

American-International Charolais Association
Genomic Enhanced EPD
enetic evaluations are a way to enhance selection and characterize genetics for animals for those traits that impact the profitability of beef production. Improvements in genomic technology have now made it possible to further enhance predictability of our current selection tools with the incorporation of genomic values into our genetic evaluations and thereby improving accuracy of EPD, particularly for younger animals. Genomic technology now along with pedigree, performance and progeny information can be used in the calculation and reporting of EPD. In the AICA genetic evaluations, the genomic results are incorporated into the EPDs as a correlated trait. Through coordinated research and development between Iowa State University, AGI and AICA, a genetic correlation was calculated between the values obtained from the genomic test results and the phenotypic data at the Association. The stronger the genetic correlation the more the genomic value will impact the EPD and accuracy for a trait. Through these research efforts genomic predictions for eight traits were identified to incorporate into the Charolais National Cattle Evaluation; Calving Ease Direct, Birth Weight, Weaning Weight, Yearling Weight, Maternal Milk, Ribeye Area, Marbling and Scrotal Circumference. In regards to selection based on genomic enhanced EPD, use has not changed as the EPD remains the industry standard. But with the addition of genomic enhanced EPD selection now has the added benefit of increased accuracy of selection for those younger or non-progeny proven animals that have a genomic enhanced EPD.
FAQs Does DNA testing replace collecting actual phenotypic data – birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight, carcass and ultrasound? No. Genomic results are an indicator trait and do not completely describe the genetic variation in traits of interest. Therefore, collection of phenotypic data continues to be the most important information breeders collect to identify high accuracy sires. Additionally, as AICA works to further improve genetic selection tools overtime as our DNA database expands phenotypic data is an important part of the refinement and development of genomic panels.

animals with lower accuracy, mostly young non-parent animals or those animals with few progeny records as part of the Charolais National Cattle Evaluation. Certainly, as more genotypes are recorded with AICA for animals that also have performance and/or progeny data recorded the more accuracy AICA can expect in the further development of genomic panels in the future. Should I DNA test my herd bulls or my donor dam? Matt ? Spangler, University of Nebraska Beef Cattle Extension Specialist Yes. In the case where these animals are low accuracy, genomic information will help increase accuracy and provide more insight into the animal’s true genetic potential as a parent. If they are moderate to high accuracy already, genomic information will not change their EPD substantially if at all. However, these animals are critical to the continued building of the training set to refine and improve the Charolais genomic predictions.
Should I DNA test my commercial bulls and will it
value for commercial bull buyers? Matt Spangler, ? add Associate Professor, University of Nebraska Beef Genetics Extension Specialist It can be used to help decide which bulls should be marketed, as an early sorting stick if you will. It will add value for your commercial bull buyers. Not only will it correct potential pedigree errors (parentage testing), but it will also increase the accuracy of their EPDs. The willingness of commercial bull buyers to pay more for tested bulls will likely depend on their understanding of accuracy or possible change. This technology is a means of mitigating risk by increasing the confidence of the EPD of young sires. Essentially they can buy bulls that have similar accuracies to those that have already sired calves. This added confidence should command a premium but will undoubtedly take education. Any marketing advantage will likely favor early technology adopters.
I do a DNA test on my animals will there be any ? Ifchanges to their EPD?
As the accuracy of the EPD for an animal increases adding genomic information has less impact on the EPD. Higher accuracy animals are already well characterized through progeny records and the genomic information may have no impact on the EPD or accuracy. However, for lower accuracy animals the genomic test should improve accuracy. As before, with increases in accuracy, some

animals EPD will go up, some will go down and some will change very little. Additionally, as performance data is submitted for these animals or progeny records collected, changes to EPD values and accuracy will be further impacted with the additional information. Genomic information is simply another part of the puzzle to characterize the genetics of an animal. Will genomic enhanced EPD on parent animals affect
pedigree estimates? ? progeny AICA computes pedigree estimated (PE) EPD for those
animals whose sire has an accuracy value published and also whose dam and/or maternal grandsire likewise has an accuracy value published along with their EPD. AICA does not compute PE EPD for those animals where one of the above does not have an EPD or has a PE EPD published. This rule is unchanged for genomic enhanced EPD in consideration of pedigree estimates. PE EPD remain a simply calculation of ½ of the EPD for the sire and ½ of the EPD for the dam.
future will genomic predictions be available for ? Inotherthetraits?
Yes. Genomic information will expand in the future for more complex traits and those traits more difficult and costly to collect phenotypic data for. These may include traits such as disease susceptibility, feed efficiency, reproduction and adaptation. This requires phenotypic databases to develop and validate these genomic tests. AICA works closely with research organizations in various projects in this regard. The National Program for Genetic Improvement of Feed Efficiency in Beef Cattle is one such program. This project and others are ongoing, including work at the ARS Meat Animal Research Center, with the anticipation that results will allow for more traits to be added to the list of published genomic enhanced EPD in the future. These research efforts also lead to additional genotypes which have and can be further incorporated into the Charolais National Cattle Evaluation as the pipelines to coordinate genotypes and phenotypes between researchers, service providers and associations are refined.
the AICA DNA database expands, will lower density, less ? Asexpensive testing be used? Jared Decker, Assistant Professor, University of Missouri Beef Genetics Extension Specialist Yes, as the DNA database grows additional genotyping options will become available. Once a sufficiently large reference population exists we can infer a large number of genotypes (i.e. the 50K SNPs) from a smaller set of genotypes (i.e. genotypes from a 10,000 SNP test) using pedigree or population information. We can predict the genotypes at the 50K locations based on a subset of these SNPs. The fancy word for this process is called imputation. But, the DNA database needs to grow first so that genomic predictions can become more accurate and sufficient data is available for reliable imputation.
is the merit of the 78K test versus the 50K test? ? What Jared Decker, University of Missouri Beef Cattle
Extension Specialist Charolais breeders should be assured that the two tests provide very similar information. The 50K test was
designed in 2007 to place 54,000 SNPs evenly across the cattle chromosomes. In 2010, a test with 777,000 SNPs was designed (referred to as the 777K chip). Later, GeneSeek designed the GGP-HD test that examines 78,000 SNPs that were selected from the 777K test to work well in United States beef breeds. The GeneSeek GGP-HD test for 78K SNPs also contains proprietary SNPs, so that traits like Horned/Poll, coat color, and genetic defects can be tested simultaneously as the data for genomic-enhanced EPDs is being produced. Once sufficient data is available, data from the 50K test and the 78K test can be combined through the process of imputation. have utilized labs or other tests in the past for DNA ? Itesting. Are these useable for Charolais Genomic
Enhanced EPDs? Depending on the type of test that was requested, many of the tests are trait specific marker tests which are run on much smaller SNP panels and therefore are not usable. What AICA needs at this time is the 50K genotype.
is the cost to do a 50K DNA test? Does this include ? What parentage verification? $85 50K DNA Test (includes parentage) $45 Horned/Polled (stand-alone test)
do I obtain a DNA test kit? In what format do I ? How receive a kit?
DNA test kits must be requested through AICA. AICA can either mail or email the test kit to the producer. We will need either the registration number or performance number for the animal a request is being made for. For those animals not in the AICA database we will need the ID, sex, date of birth and the registration numbers for all possible parents. What type of sample is required for a DNA test? Several different types of samples will work effectively including hair follicles, blood card, semen and tissue notches (ear notch). The tissue notches are the least reliable. Hair sample collection instructions: Inspect the hair to make sure it is dry and free of any debris. Animals over 90 days of age require 40-50 hair roots while animals under 90 days of age require 60-70 hair roots. Follicles must be present for DNA testing. Pull, do not cut hair from the tail switch and tape the center of the hair shafts to the submission form. Semen sample shipping instructions: Inspect the semen straw to make sure the registration number is clear and readable. Package one thawed semen straw in protective wrapping to avoid breakage during shipment in a padded envelope or small box. Semen sample must be sent overnight to arrive on a business day. Blood cards are available by contacting the AICA office. Allflex TSU tissue sample tags are available through GeneSeek.
much time should I allow when DNA testing? ? HowApproximately one month after sample arrives at lab.

The preconceived notion that Americans who grow up in a rural community are somewhat uneducated or uncivilized is nothing more than a misconception. As this is nowhere near the truth. We are the building blocks that help this country run. The qualities that we learn growing up in the agriculture industry are something that we will carry with us forever. Patience, tenacity, responsibility and appreciation are just a few qualities as showmen we juniors and adults have in common. This industry takes a person and helps them find these qualities in themselves. The one thing I have learned through my years of showing is that these are the character building qualities that we acquire over time. Patience – the capacity to accept or tolerate delay. A quality people have the most trouble with. It does not come easily and cannot be taught. Though we struggle, we must take the time to be understanding. As every person believes that their calf is the best, unfortunately every show
acquire this skill. Getting up in the morning and going out in the evening to feed, rinse, walk and groom are just a few things that we must do every day to help prepare for shows. It is your responsibility to better yourself and your animal to hopefully achieve success. Appreciation – your gratitude, your thankfulness. At the end of the day, all we can do is be thankful for what this industry does and what it offers as it presents so many opportunities, connections and life long memories. There is nothing more to appreciate, than the time we spend with the people of this business. You must appreciate the small things in life and not take what you earn for granted. This quality is hard to show sometimes, as not all things go in your favor. When losing is not the easiest thing to do, shaking the other person’s hand is the decent thing to do. Character – the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. As all of these qualities mentioned before are just a few of what contribute to a person’s character.

is a different person’s opinion. We must wait until the day that one person’s opinion is in our favor. As we feed, wash and take care of our livestock, we must have the patience until that day has come. Whether it be winning a class, a division or being awarded champion, that is the moment we realize all the patience we have given has paid off. Tenacity – the quality or fact of being very determined. The money, effort and time we choose to put into this business is inconceivable. Everyone in this industry is so driven and indomitable. We work hard and put all our energy and focus into one thing. Winning. All we want as showmen is to hold that purple ribbon at the end of the show. There is nothing wrong with the want and the will to win. Because no matter what, that is something we all strongly yearn–to be recognized. Responsibility – the state or fact of being accountable for something. This is a quality that we all learn at a young age. Showing livestock, no matter what species, makes us 32
J A N U A R Y 2015
This industry teaches us just that. How to build your character as it prepares you for life. Showing livestock is a special interest. As not everyone understands why we do it, most believe it is nothing more than a leisure hobby, which is not true. It paves a path, as it molds the young generation into the future agriculturists of tomorrow. At the end of the day, character is what defines us. The AIJCA helps juniors build character as it will only better themselves by setting them apart. The cattle industry especially, is fortunate to have remarkable adults who support the juniors by engaging them in opportunities that are found throughout this business. Many future leaders are among us, young juniors. We are the future. We can only be pushed in the right direction. It is up to us to build our character to our advantage and push ourselves even further.

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.

At Sturgess Double S, we put a lot of thought and eﬀort into every planned mating born on the ranch. We take each female and evalute her performance, her physical traits, production records, EPD’s, and match them to AI and cleanup sires that we hope will improve her oﬀspring. God gave us a brain--we try to use it. Nothing is left to natural selection or even multiple sire groups. Hence, they are in every since of the term a GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISM, or GMO. JGS GMO Z314 represents our latest eﬀort to produce genetically modiﬁed and therefore superior genetics for a better world. He possesses the ideal size, bone, structure and foot that we want to see in our cattle. Thick from front to rear, GMO has the depth and spring of rib that excels over ﬂatter made cattle. His dam, M527 will be 13 years of age in April. Curiously, she has +4.9 BW EPD, yet the heaviest calf recorded to her weighed only 90 lbs and has averaged 77 lbs on 14 calves. And her calving interval is suberb. M527’s ﬁrst eight calves were all born in season. She has since become a donor in our herd. So, if traits like longevity, and fertility mean anything to you, then GMO is the bull for you. And when a planned mating results in a calf that is in the top 1% of the breed for WW & YW, the top 5% for SC, 15% for MTL and the top 25% for CWT and MARB...we would say that this genetic modifcation is an improvement. Wouldn’t you?
WANTED FOR IMPORT: PART 1
BREEDING BEEF CATTLE By Linda Eck
This post is becoming more and more popular in world trade circles as livestock deficient countries are striving to develop beef industries to boost their economy and fill a growing need for quality protein. While the United States has a long history in the exportation of breeding livestock, the demand for superior performance-based genetics in other countries is exploding and Charolais cattle are taking their place among the growing number of livestock breeds being exported. Countries unaccustomed to raising red meat are becoming more devoted to putting together cattle herds, thus strengthening demand for U.S. live cattle exports. Agricultural ministries and state departments of these nations are working diligently to hone plans, many of which include hearty incentives to secure an increase in beef production. While the demand for breeding females is high, countries that have been aggressive in their programs over the past few years are also looking for breeding age bulls. In late November the Republic of Turkey announced a tender for breeding bulls that included the need for 100 head of Charolais. The 800-head plea also included requests for Simmental, Limousin, Brown Swiss and Montbeliard bulls. Issuing the intent to tender may be the simplest part of the entire process as exporting and importing live cattle is wrapped with red tape including health restrictions, certifications and quarantines. In most cases transportation by sea and air must be scheduled far in advance and with careful consideration. This is where the support of agricultural export organizations such as the U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, Inc. (USLGE) and Livestock Exporters Association of the USA (LEA), the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), similar groups from abroad, agricultural ministries of countries around the world and specialized transportation services come into play. WHERE ARE THE CATTLE GOING? “These bulls will be purchased for importation from the countries authorized to export live cattle to Turkey,” noted Turkey’s Agricultural Specialist Sinem Duyum, in the announcement for tender. With the United States and Australia topping the list of 15 approved countries, which also includes France, the request comes from the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock of Turkey (MinFAL). The tender was set to take place on Dec. 15, with bulls to be delivered to the Ceylanpinar Agricultural Establishment Directorate, Ceylanpinar/Sanliurfa/Turkey by April 30, 2015. The Ceylanpinar Agricultural unit constitutes over 400,000 acres and represents more than 51 percent of Turkey’s productive farm land assets as part of the General Directorate of Agricultural Enterprises (TIGEM) and is just one of many farms and ranches under development or looking to expand. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL
J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 5 53
Citing worldwide drought during 2008 and 2009 as the need to reinforce its production through irrigation and mechanization, the TIGEM is also increasing the intensity for growing its beef herd in an effort to develop a beef industry capable of securing growing needs. The agricultural unit in the Republic of Turkey initially began by incorporating stud farms and cow barns with state farms in 1984 and has since developed into an extensive state-owned crop and livestock enterprise. With an irrigation system able to provide uninterrupted irrigation to over 150,000 acres completed in 2011, at a cost of more than $130 million, the farm has quickly become a modern agricultural unit. The growth is so dynamic that the enterprise reported 26,000 acres moved into irrigation over 70 years in comparison to more than 154,000 irrigated acres in just the past three years. An irrigation canal is also under construction through the state’s action plan, and upon completion, which is expected in 2016, will up the total acreage of irrigated land to nearly 300,000. Citing worldwide drought during 2008 and 2009 as the need to reinforce its production through irrigation and mechanization, the TIGEM is also increasing the intensity for growing its beef herd in an effort to develop a beef industry capable of securing growing needs. During the 33rd Annual Conference on U.S. - Turkey Relations held June 3, 2014, Mark D. Newman, president of Market Solutions LLC was invited to address U.S. exporters, breed associations and others on the topic of exports to the Republic of Turkey. His presentation, “Doubling Turkey’s Dairy and Beef Production by 2023: Potential for U.S. –Turkey Partnerships,” shed light on Turkey’s aggressive strategies which include making genetic improvements to increase productivity. According to Newman, his organization is working on trade and investment issues with Turkey on behalf of U.S. and Turkish clients, researching needs and priorities of Turkey’s livestock industry and exploring potential partnerships to strengthen productivity and enhance trade with neighboring countries. The study was conducted for USLGE and State Departments of Agriculture. U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau and Foreign Trade Statistics indicate that in 2007 Turkey imported only 1,593 head of cattle from the United States compared to 21,607 in 2010; 62,169 in 2011, and 25,312 in 2012. (See Table 1) In 2011 and 2012, the combined exports of live 54
J A N U A R Y 2015
cattle to Turkey and Russia surpassed the combined total of exports to Mexico and Canada, countries which typically lead in the number of live U.S. cattle imports. In 2013 the U.S. exported 160,678 head of cattle to 25 countries. Russia, Turkey’s neighbor to the north received 35 percent of those cattle, while Canada and Mexico combined for 50 percent and Turkey received 16,245 head, or 10 percent of those shipped. Countries across eastern Europe and western Asia, as well as other parts of the world, are issuing similar requests, increasing the demand for quality livestock exports from the United States. Coming off an era when most of their red meat came from discarded dairy animals, countries that were formerly part of the USSR are among those with increasing demand for higher quality food. As a result, they are seeking to import more beef from progressive programs like that of Turkey and/or improved genetics that will help them grow their beef industries. RUSSIA PUSHES TO GROW BEEF HERD Russia has also been a bold importer of beef cattle over the past few years, but trade with Russia is currently overshadowed by a strained political atmosphere. USDA’s FAS/Moscow forecasts Russia’s 2015 cattle inventories to decrease as the result of increasing herd slaughter resulting in part from Russia’s restrictions on beef imports from several countries, including the United States. The sting from Russia’s ban on imports from the U.S., Canada, Australia and the European Club, is putting pressure on the beef industry for not only quantity, but quality. According to the Dec. 5, 2014 issue of Russia beyond the Headlines, Russian consumers are starting to pay the price for the country’s ban on imported goods. The story reports the price of meat has increased significantly over the past four months and Russia’s growing hospitality industry is being forced to do without popular European brands and products, including premium Charolais beef and Bresse chicken, typically received from France. As the Russian Federation continues to beef up its industry, government subsidy funds are being

U.S. Dept. of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau and Foreign Trade Statistics
targeted toward developing production at Miratorg, the country’s integrated meat and food producer and one of the largest beef production enterprises in Europe. Training employees in beef cattle management, expanding private veterinary services and attracting advanced technology to improve efficiency are being targeted in an effort for Russia to meet its long-term goal of returning the country to self-sufficiency. According to Rosselkhoznadzor, the country’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance, Miratorg includes 110,000 breeding cows, feedlots with a capacity of up to 47,500 head and a high-tech slaughter and processing plant capable of processing 400,000 animals per year. In addition to breeding stock, Russia has been importing feeder cattle from the U.S., Canada and Australia in recent years. But, while the goal for increased production at Miratorg is to meet 20 percent of market demand with excess production to be exported; there still remains a significant number of small farms and ranches that do not fall under the graces of federal subsidies and are struggling to improve their herds without the aid of government supported incentives that typically find their way into the hands of conglomerates. These producers are the ones who could benefit from import programs that offer handson assistance from local government and exporting agencies. “The need for assistance is great in all areas of basic livestock management,” says Dr. Greg Lenz, a southwest Missouri embryologist who has made the trek to Russia on two occasions with the American Embryo Transfer Association. Speaking about small production units which do not typically fall under the auspices of government entities, Lenz noted that the Russian farms they visited were unable to get embryos as part of government-supported import programs. Dr. Lenz, also visited the Eurasian country of Georgia as part of a USAIDE program, and
noted that management in health and nutritional practices and a lack of technical skills are taking a toll as some farmers and ranchers struggle to attain acceptable conception rates. “They just need a better understanding and people trained in insemination techniques and embryo transplant,” said Dr. Lenz. “I visited maybe 10 different farms in Georgia, of course they were coming off a dry summer and had a severe problem with forage; cows were thin and they had a poor pregnancy rate. If their government would step in, I think it would benefit more small operations.” As part of the USAIDE mission, Dr. Lenz joined with other volunteer farmers and professionals to give advice. He spent time formulating rations using available feedstuffs, ultrasounding and pregnancy checking cattle. PLANNING IS CRUCIAL, TIMING IS EVERYTHING Transportation is a huge portion of the cost of importing livestock outside of North America. Vessels designed solely for shipping livestock must be procured far in advance of a shipment, so planning is crucial. Processing, health regulations and quarantines must all be completed before boarding, so timing is everything. Obviously, the option of shipping semen and embryos offers advantages. Airfare for live cattle has been reported to be as high as $2,000 or more per head and while shipping livestock by sea is usually less expensive, transportation is slow. Shipments from eastern U.S. ports to Mediterranean ports typically range from 14 to 21 days. Information on how Charolais breeders are impacting the world trade market will be included in the second part of this story, scheduled to appear in the February issue of the Charolais Journal.

harolais cattle have been a passion for the Zimmerman family for over 50 years, and we plan to continue that family tradition. In 1959, our family brought our first Charolais cattle to Minnesota purchased from Charley Litton. And, the Zimmermans were Charter Members of the Minnesota Charolais Association. Our genetic program is unique – based on combinations of the pioneer Litton Ranch herd sire, FWT Bar 951 (Sam 951) and his sons and One Penny Blanco Flash 6424, the homozygous polled, multi-year Yearling Weight EPD Trait Leader. These proven sires have been mated with LT Unlimited Ease 9108, LT Rio Bravo 3181 and other leading sires from the Lindskov-Thiel program.
