J. Neil Orth, Executive Vice President
Making Sense When Nothing Makes Sense The market will do what the market will do. Sometimes the cattle business, simply put, makes no sense. The past year is
a textbook example. Epic drought forced historic cow herd liquidations in 2012, 2013 and early 2014. Before adequate rainfall and decimated pastures began to improve, the nation’s cow herd reduced by more than 7 million head. Derrell Peel, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension livestock marketing specialist noted in 2013, “Cattle industry professionals can be forgiven for scratching their heads when trying to analyze what is coming. Herd expansion prospects for 2014 include factors that suggest both potential for faster-than-normal growth and factors that will limit growth.” The market in 2015 has been equally as perplexing. In fact, Peel’s comments were right on target for 2014 and 2015. Mid-year the market began to dramatically slide downward and we saw the impact very heavy carcasses have had on profitability back down the supply chain. Packers finally were able to sign checks with black ink instead of red, while cattle feeders are suffering big losses on fed cattle. Cash prices for feeder cattle tanked and commercial cow-calf producers were left scratching their heads.
focus to improve at the seedstock level and implement new technology, the commercial sector would be stuck in the 1980s. Advancing science and the development of accurate and predictable genetic selection tools have supplied the beef industry with inherit risk management tools. In fact, arguably, the data and information we have because of technology may be the most important and dependable risk management tool throughout the supply chain. Charolais seedstock producers are squarely in the center of the discussion relative to the implementation of new tools and technology. Through the use of genetic evaluation tools, registered Charolais seedstock producers have made dramatic improvements. In fact, the improvements are so significant, we are using the information in the most recent national advertising campaign. The 2015 Fall Charolais National Cattle Evaluation Genetic Trend documents, since 1990, the average weaning and yearling weights have increased. Carcass weights and ribeye size have increased as well, while birth weight decreased. Each improvement provides specific risk management regardless of the market. The tools are not designed to make improvements
“Therefore, producers should be prepared for some rough sailing in the months ahead and plan accordingly. Amidst the whirlwind, careful analysis is especially important to ensure successful decision making.” Nevil Speer, vice president of U.S. operations for AgriClear, Inc., in his weekly report for Beef magazine, recently relayed information from the Livestock Marketing Information Center, “The market is trying to find its way. The turn of events—or at least the degree to which they occurred—for 2015 was unexpected. But those sharp moves aren’t likely to end any time soon. Markets have a tendency to overcorrect. Trying to outguess or outsmart this market is nearly impossible to do and the consequences can be devastating. Given the continued pattern within the market, sharp moves are the primary challenge to be managed – both up and down.” Speer goes on to say, “Therefore, producers should be prepared for some rough sailing in the months ahead and plan accordingly. Amidst the whirlwind, careful analysis is especially important to ensure successful decision making.” The take home message for the seedstock producer is, although our sector response lags behind the daily markets, we are more connected to the commercial sector than ever before. Ultimately, what happens on the futures trading floor will eventually have an impact. We knew this ride to the top would not last. It never does. That’s the nature of the beef business. However, with every ebb and flow of the cattle cycle, the seedstock sector is, arguably, the cornerstone. Without the discipline and
for one calf crop. The tools are important regardless of your breeding philosophy—natural service, artificial insemination or embryo transfer. Any change (i.e. improvement) doesn’t happen in a vacuum or overnight. There are always immediate adaptors to change as well as staunch critics. Others take the “wait and see” approach. For many years, your association has been fortunate to have had forward thinking members on the breed improvement committees. These members have done due diligence throughout the decades to evaluate the tools as well as consider the cost of implementation and have a clear picture of how any tool or technology applies up the production system. A recent CME Group Daily Livestock Report read, “While the cattle market is going through a very turbulent time, analyzing some of the larger themes at play provides more definition to the landscape the industry will find itself in during 2016 and possibly into 2017. These larger themes include; respective supply in the pork and broiler industries, exchange rates and the value of the U.S. dollar, and world beef production.” In other words, no one knows what the cattle market will do in 2016, any more than we knew, in 2014, what was in store for 2015. However, we do know genetic improvements add value. We know we have genetic evaluation tools at our disposal to add value throughout the production system. The market will do what the market will do.

Enroll Your Females
AmericanInternational Charolais Association The AICA is the official registry for Charolais and Charbray cattle in the United States. Charolais cattle were first brought to the U.S. in 1936. In 1957, the American Charolais Breeders Association and the International Charolais Breeders Association merged forming the present AICA. Membership in the AICA is obtainable when the applicant has ownership in at least one animal, and has paid the initial membership fee of $125. AICA annual dues are $100.
J A N U A R Y 2016
January, February and March are enrollment months for Charolais females. On-line enrollment is open for the 2016 calving year on January 1st. Members who have not begun the enrollment process on-line will receive the paper forms early in February. The WHR program continues to be $14 per active female until April 1st, and includes a free registration and transfer for the 2016 born calf. The PPR program is available at no-charge; however you will pay registration and transfer fees on each calf. Dues Reminder
Annual dues are now due. Active member – $100, junior member – $25. Junior member Charolais Journal subscriptions are an additional $25. Be sure to update all contact information including e-mails and websites. Online passwords will not work until 2016 dues are paid. Advertising Deadline
The deadline to place advertising in the March 2016 Charolais Journal is January 20. The deadline for the Charolais Edge, Spring Issue is January 20. Contact your field representative about these and other advertising opportunities. Link Your Herd Management Package to AICA
AICA has launched a new service that provides the framework to allow on-farm herd management computer software to exchange data with the AICA office. By using this service, breeders can avoid entering data in to both their local software and AICA’s online system. The software package would send AICA the data. If you wish to take advantage of this new service, ask your software vendor to contact AICA. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL
Year letter for 2016 is D.
Record your 2016 born calves using AICA’s online system. Add the data as the calves are born; continue to update the records as you add weaning and yearling data. Register the calves at any time by just adding the name.

Dispose of Animals
Executive Vice President J. Neil Orth ext. 101
Dispose of animals you no longer have by using the online system. The disposal button is at the bottom of the “Quick Look” screen. DO NOT dispose of bulls still being used, regardless of their status. DO NOT dispose of animals you are selling with papers. Features of 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.

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.

Thanks to LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin), parasite control will never be the same. Comparing more than 15,000 head in nine states, stockers treated for parasites with LONGRANGE gained an average of 28 lbs. more over DECTOMAX® (doramectin), CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) and ivermectin-treated cattle – even when used in combination over 103 days.1 And at today’s market prices, that adds up to an extra $56 per head. Not bad for around a $5 investment.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Do not treat within 48 days of slaughter. Not for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows, or in veal calves.

Directors By Area
Hello to all Charolais breeders. I am Payton Creasey, the oldest of four girls. I grew up in a small town called Macomb. My family and I raise and show Charolais cattle. I am a freshman this year at Western Illinois University majoring in Agricultural Business. I am the area five director and currently hold the position of secretary of the AIJCA board. I hope everyone has had a wonderful year and an even better new year!
Area 1 Casey Bradshaw Twin Falls, ID (208) 320-8266
Bertsche” to some other new member or younger member. I hope to make all younger or new members feel welcome. Junior nationals is one of the best weeks of my life and I hope to make it the same for everyone else that attends.
Q: What are some of your traits that help you to be
a good board member?
Some traits of being a good board member would Q: How has being involved in the AIJCA impacted you? A: be willing to listen to new ideas, leading by example, A: When I was young, my dad introduced my sister and I to communicating and meeting new people. A good board
showing cattle. I had no idea the places it would take me or even the experiences it would allow me to have. Being involved in the AIJCA has allowed me to make forever lasting friendships that I would not have had without this organization. I look forward to every show and seeing friends from all over that I don’t see all that often. It has also allowed me to take part in leadership to the younger kids.
Why is it important for the younger kids to get involved in Junior Nationals?
A: I think it is greatly important for the younger kids to get involved not only to keep the breed and association going but allow them to make the friendships and have the experiences just like the older members have experienced. Showing cattle is so much more than competing. I believe it teaches kids responsibility, what hard work really is and how to work with others. These are all very important skills in life. I believe that kids that grow up showing cattle have an advantage in life over others. Q:
What or who inspired you to become a board member and why?
My family first experienced Charolais Junior Nationals in 2008 in Des Moines, Iowa. We were knew to the overall experience. Troy Bertsche was on the AIJCA board that year and my area director.

About the second day Troy Bertsche came over and introduced himself to me and my family.

President is fast replacing his illustrious sire as a great brood cow producer and his bull calves show extremely wide topped, thick made bulls that will have more eye-appeal. Alex 950 has been successfully flushed by DeBruyckers. She has produced 11 calves of which 7 are ET calves. As a larger frame cow, she still exhibits the ability to fleshen easily and milks very well with a very prominent and correct udder. This powerhouse can make most any bull look good with her ultimate performance and design. The Zentastic calf could easily be your next herd sire of straight DeBruycker breeding or one of the females that might also be a consideration for the exclusive “Pick of Your Herd!”

This may be as good an opportunity to obtain one as there will ever be. There isn’t that many young Cigar cows in the breed now and 524 could be the creator of the next generation of cattle descending from Cigar!

Show Dedicatee Maurice Rohr
Back in a time when ranchers only used Angus, Herefords and Shorthorns, one man decided to venture to find something new. Considered one of the first Charolais pioneers in Kansas by many and a man of great knowledge about the breed, Maurice Rohr is one who helped start it all. “For most, Maurice needs no introduction,” said Curtis Ohlde, vice president of the Kansas Charolais Association, “He can often be seen at Charolais events across the country, and at shows you can find him in the aisles sitting on his chair talking with anyone walking along by.” Maurice was born and raised in Hays, Kan., where his father had been involved with farming since he was a little boy. Maurice and his father started their own cattle operation with commercial cows and a few purebred Herefords, Maurice said. Maurice is a graduate from Fort Hays State University with a degree in Agricultural Science. Since then he has gone on to be involved in many organizations across the state of Kansas and within the Charolais breed. With many accomplishments such as, past president of the Ellis Country Farm Bureau Association, founder and past president of the Ellis Country Young Farmers Association, and delegate from the Charolais Breeders of Kansas to the Kansas Livestock Association Purebred Committee. Maruice first got started with the Charolais breed in 1961, when he purchased 10 three-fourths Charolais cows with one purebred heifer and one purebred bull. “The first purebred bull I purchased was a full French bull out of Canada,” Maurice said. “I liked the muscling, performance and correctness of the French Charolais cattle.” In the summer of 1961, Maurice exhibited four yearling heifers to the Ellis County Fair. Just three years later, he traveled to the Kansas State Fair when exhibitors were allowed to show Charolais cattle for the first time. “I believe the reason they let Charolais cattle into the show was because Jerry Litton of Litton Charolais out of Missouri,” Maurice said. Jerry had brought the Sam 951 bull down the year before on display, and someone poured gray paint all over him. “Breeds like Angus, Hereford and Shorthorn were the main breeds at that time and for the Charolais breed to be introduced it was quite exciting,” Maurice said. At first, Maurice said others would call Charolais “White Angus” and from a distance, many thought the cattle were sheep. However, the muscling and performance of the breed impressed the exhibitors and spectators, he said. The Charolais breed began to take off after that first year and continued to prosper, he said. As Maurice began to travel in the ‘70s and ‘80s to exhibit throughout the states at shows like the American Royal, National Western, Fort Worth Stock Show and the Tulsa State Fair, the number of Charolais cattle reached 400 head at each show. He said he remembered an average for each class was around 33 head. “Compared to Charolais shows today, back then the Charolais breed had outnumbered the Shorthorns, however, probably came in second with Herefords,” Maurice said. Maurice is a breeder who has helped make the Charolais breed so popular today, Curtis said. In 2014, Maurice was recognized for his involvement within the breed, when the Kansas State Fair honored the 50-year mark of exhibitors showing Charolais cattle. Maurice was honored as one of the first four breeders to start the Charolais show. Maurice has been an active member of the American International Charolais Association
By: Megan Johnson, AIJCA President
and within his state association since 1961. Maurice started as a director and eventually served as vice-president and then president for the Kansas Charolais Association. Also he was involved on AICA committees on a national level. Maurice said he considers one of his proudest accomplishments owning “MR Acc Amour,” the bull who broke the weaning weight record in the early ‘70s and is still the breed recordholder today. The bull sired out of “Alogo” who held the record for yearling weights at the same time. Smokey Hill Charoalis Farm also holds two world records today through the performance registry international with “MR Acc Amour Jr. and MR Miss Ali Baba. Another great moment for Maurice was being invited and participating twice in the World of Heifer Show and Sale.This event features the families of five half-sisters by world famous sire. As years have passed, with his kids grown and grandchildren starting to show, Maurice continues to stay involved with the Charolais breed. He travels to many shows and events, and he assists with the Kansas juniors as they compete. “The younger generations must not let the breed lose its identity, while many other breeds have lost theirs over the years,” Maurice said. Within the time Maurice has been involved with Charolais Cattle, he has seen how the industry and breed has changed through the years. “I hope the future generations will only do better than the past in promoting the breed and helping others understand what Charolais cattle can do for them,” Maurice said. “Improving the cattle industry by holding to weaning weights in heifers and bulls through the performance record.” Maurice and his wife, Mary, raised two boys, Mark and Mitch, who both were very active junior members in the junior Charolais program. Even though both boys are grown, Mark and Mitch are still heavily involved in the cattle industry. Mitch is a ranch manager for a large Angus ranch in Colorado and started his own business, Ag Consulting for Ponderosa Advisors, where he serves as director. Mark is the manager for Proven Sire Services, headquartered at the family ranch in Hays. Together, Maruice and Mark owns and operates Lazy H Ranch and Smokey Hill Charolais Farm. Smokey Hill Charolais Farms has been a purebred breeder within the Charolais breed for over 50 years now. Soon, the grandchildren will continue on the family tradition of showing Charolais cattle, Maurice said. Today, the ranch consist of 2,000 acres, with the cattle operation running more than 60 Charolais cows and 145 Angus cows. Maurice and Mark operate with artificial insemination and embryo transplant and selling to purebred breeders across the North America and some in foreign countries. Smokey Hill Charolais Farms annual production sale is considered one of the top averaging sales within Kansas, said Cutris. Smokey Hill Charolais is a cattle operation with a great genetic program and the loyalty of the customers each year is because of the wonderful hospitality and service Maurice and his family offer, Curtis said. A man who is knowledgeable about the genetics, nutrition and marketing in the cattle industry, Maurice will be remembered to many as a true pioneer who was instrumental in the upbringing of the Charolais breed in Kansas and throughout the country. Though time has passed and age has slowed Maurice down, he continues to stay involved in the Charolais breed and cattle industry still today.

47 Herdsman of the Year Justin Patrick, Richmond, Mo.
( l to r) Miss Charolais USA Rachel Bonacker, Justin Patrick, and Craig Stalcup, Prescott, Iowa 46th National Herdsmen of the Year.
When a lifestyle and a dream unite Patrick named 47th National Herdsman of the Year With lifelong roots in the cattle industry, the Missouri-native Justin Patrick might be one of the newer faces in the Charolais industry, but certainly working to make a big splash. Growing up on his family’s Shorthorn cattle operation, Patrick got an early start in the business in Warrensburg, Missouri, and one might say caught a passion that soon turned into a lifelong career. When he was too old for the junior show circuit, his family began transitioning their herd to Simmental bloodlines just a few short years ahead of moving the herd towards more of a Charolais influence. “My mom’s side of the family started with Shorthorn cattle nearly a five decades ago, with a Hereford herd before that,” Patrick explained. “We found added performance and functionality with Charloais genetics on our crossbred herd that we didn’t have before and continued to build on that opportunity.” While looking to fine tune his cattle work, and improve his genetic talents, Patrick and wife Morgan landed themselves in Richmond, Missouri, working for Wright Charolais. With two upcoming junior members, daughter Atley and son Adler, each have their own smokey heifer to start building their own herd in preparation for their future days in the showring. “It’s been a little over 4 years ago when I started working with Chris Peuster and Derry Wright and it was a great fit right away,” Patrick said. “Getting up and doing what I’ve always wanted to do every day is an incredible experience. It makes it easy to not look at this as a job, but a career. The late, late nights and early mornings can be rigorous, but I love what I’m doing and that’s what’s really important.” Helping build a functional herd of Charolais cattle, the Wright team finds success with cattle that have a place stretching to each of the country. Whether in the western corners of Washington, to the far east of Maine, or as far south as Florida, the success of the Wright Charolais herd extends well beyond the showring. They’re sound heifers that become great cows, he says. After having the early opportunity to work with and for seasoned professionals like Gregg Alsup and Greg and Pearl Walthall, Patrick gained real perspective on the industry and had the ability of pursuing his purebred dreams and taking his career to the next level.
“There’s been a boatload of people that have helped me along the way, but those three individuals were pivotal in my early beginnings,” Patrick said. “Even though I’d shown my whole life, they had a whole different perspective from the county and state fairs that I was used to showing at. They helped me along, even at times they didn’t have to.” At the 47th National Charolais Show in Louisville, Kentucky, Patrick found himself in the national spotlight as they announced him as the winner of the National Herdsman of the Year award. An award that was a natural fit for his talent, but not one that he’d had his eye one. “It’s a huge honor and something you always try to see in your own work, but not something you actually shoot for,” Patrick described. “It was extremely humbling to have those that you work with and compete against to think enough of the job that you’re doing to vote you for something like that.” No stranger to the national limelight, Patrick is proud to have brought along the National Champion Charolais bull, LT WC Templeton, crowned in Fort Worth, Texas in 2013. In addition, he has shared the success of Wright Charolais in having the Champion Pen of 3 Bulls for three years running, starting in 2012, at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. “Having helped get cattle there for others is great, but taking them to the top from start to finish is a whole different ballgame,” Patrick described. “It’s what I’m constantly reaching for and working toward.” For this Missouri man, hard work and common sense has taken him a long way. For upcoming junior members, he stresses the importance of getting involved and not being afraid to get your hands dirty. Above all, worry only about what you’re doing and less about what everyone else is doing. “While the cattle industry is ever-changing, what we’re doing on a daily basis really isn’t changing,” Patrick said. “We work every day to make sure we’re not getting too far ahead of ourselves. The cattle market is in about as good of a place as it’s ever been and the recognition of the value that Charolais bulls can bring to the table in making functional females is putting an added edge on the market.”
