This past summer, I had the pleasure of traveling to the UK with 22 other Charolais enthusiasts from the U.S. to participate in the World Charolais Congress. During this 12-day adventure, we met Charolais breeders and breed execs from all over the world. We were also able to see, and learn about, Charolais cattle in the four countries that make-up the United Kingdom.

In late November, I traveled to Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada to attend the Canadian Western Agribition. I had heard about the Agribition since I was 15 years old. I was told it would rival the National Western Stock Show, the American Royal and the North American International Livestock Exposition for the quality of the cattle in the show. My expectations for this iconic show were high, and I was not disappointed. Craig Scott, Kasey, Arlana and Kord Phillips, Helge and Candace By, Darwin

Bruce Mitchell and Sally Northcutt have been working with Craig Scott, Darwin Rosso, and Sean McGrath at the Canadian Charolais Association ironing out details to allow us to run a joint genetic evaluation of Charolais cattle. Our AICA Board of Directors voted to support this joint evaluation. Since July 1, 2022, there has been significant behind the scenes effort to determine how to identify Charolais cattle that are dual enrolled in both Charolais Associations. With Mike Brooks understanding the need to use ICAR numbers (stemming from an international numbering system), Sean McGrath, Canadian Geneticist identifying the dual-enrolled animals and Kelli Retallick, Geneticist and President of Angus Genetics Incorporated (AGI) directing her team to modify the software program at AGI to accommodate ICAR numbers, we are very close to a joint

Rosso, Dennis and Lissa Serhienko, Mike Panasiuk, Cole and Jill Harvie, Craig Wilgenbusch, Carman and Donna Jackson and Keith and Karen Black welcomed me with open arms and treated me like family.

Craig Scott, General Manager of the Canadian Charolais Association, served as my host in Regina. I first met Craig in Louisville at the North American International Livestock Exposition during our fall 2021 Charolais Board Meetings. Craig and I spent nearly two weeks together during the World Charolais Congress in the UK this past July. Craig Scott and Kasey Phillips, President of the Canadian Charolais Association, attended our fall Charolais Board meetings this past October in Kansas City. I was able to spend time with both men during our National Charolais Show at the 2022 American Royal. I share these details to let you know that Craig and I are on the same page when it comes to our desire for the American-International Charolais Association and the Canadian Charolais Association to work closely together for the benefit of our Charolais breeders and members.

For several years now, Neil Orth, Rex Ricketts and the AICA Breed Improvement Committee, along with Bill Bowman,

evaluation for Charolais cattle in North America. I went into detail about the work that has been done to facilitate a joint genetic evaluation of Charolais cattle in North America, because I believe the EPDs generated by this evaluation will provide a stimulus to increase international trade of Charolais cattle between Canada and the U.S. Jumping back to my visit to Regina, SK in late November, my first full day at the Agribition included the 2022 Canadian National Charolais Sale, which included 19 lots from 19 consignors. Lot 203 caught my eye in the stalls ahead of the sale. She was an open Charolais heifer named SVY Dina 221K who was born on January 24, 2022. Dina was sired by SVY Mayfield 30H, who was in the same string of cattle as Dina. Mayfield is a coming three-yearold Charolais bull who is quite impressive. After studying the Mayfield bull, I was even more interested in the Dina heifer. Later that afternoon, Dina sold for $20,000 Canadian dollars to a U.S. Charolais breeder.

The 2022 Canadian National Charolais Show was held the following day at Agribition. I enjoyed watching the show and learning more about Canadian Charolais cattle, many of whom included U.S. genetics in their pedigree. The Champion

South Dakota’s land grant university uncovers potential for Charolais genetics to help solve cattle feeding challenges.

While black-hided cattle have long been seen as desirable in feedyards and packing plants across the country, research from South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD gives colored cattle – specifically Charolais-sired cattle – exciting new legs to stand on.

There is no real dispute over the value of heterosis or “hybrid vigor,” which occurs when two breeds are crossed. Usually, the best traits from each animal are exhibited in the offspring resulting in an animal that is superior to either parent.

Cattlemen know that although Angus beef, for example, may have more marbling than continental breeds, Angus cattle are generally lighter muscled and cutability often suffers when they are fed to greater slaughter weights.

Crossing Angus cattle with larger-framed continental breeds like Charolais often results in high-performing cattle without sacrificing quality carcasses.

Enter South Dakota State University’s research team. The university boasts two locations in eastern South Dakota designed to perform research using real-world feedlot environments. Graduate students and Animal Science PhDs create and execute experiments at each the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Ruminant Nutrition Center located near Brookings, SD and the Southeast Research Farm located near Beresford, SD.

A rolling population of cattle is required for accurate testing. Recent research projects include testing feed ingredient inclusion accuracy, trace mineral delivery methods, and the effects of different cattle receiving protocols.

Dr. Zach Smith and Dr. Warren Rusche oversee the operations of both facilities and are largely responsible for ensuring accuracy of many research components as well as supporting graduate students.

“The goal is to make sure the grad students graduate with their masters. These research projects are a huge component of that,” said Dr. Rusche.

In the spring of 2019, SDSU’s cattle buyer was given a budget and sent to the Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction in central South Dakota to purchase cattle for the Brookings site. There, he found an impressive set of Charlolaisinfluenced cattle. Uniformity in size, age, and finish are important in a research setting, and the Charolais calves met each of those requirements.

Additionally, the cattle used in SDSU studies need to be

adaptable to the harsh climate of eastern South Dakota where temperatures vary from -20 to over 100 degrees including wind, all forms of precipitation, and humidity. Since the Charolais-influenced cattle were born and raised in South Dakota, there was little concern they would be able to adapt.

After the first experience feeding the Charolaisinfluenced calves, the SDSU research team decided to purchase calves from this ranch in subsequent years. A variety of research projects were conducted, none of which focused on cattle breed. After the projects were concluded, the cattle were harvested. According to

Rusche, here is when highlights specifically tied to breed composition emerged.

The steer calves purchased in the fall of 2021 were finished to 1,475 pounds and harvested in July. Even though they were heavy, and July was particularly hot, the Charolais-influenced cattle’s feed intake was not affected.

The cattle graded exceptionally well with over 50% grading upper 2/3 Choice or Prime and only 17% Yield Grade 4 or 5. Only 12% of the cattle did not grade Choice or better.

Interestingly, the heifers from this ranch graded even better than the steers with nearly 80% grading upper 2/3 Choice or Prime with only 15% Yield Grade 4 or 5. Breaking this down according to Rusche, even

though the cattle appeared to be over-finished, they did an exceptional job of depositing fat in the muscle rather than backfat or KPH fat.

While the Charolais-sired calves were fed in Brookings, black-hided calves meeting the same research criterion were fed simultaneously at the Southeast Research Farm. These cattle were fed through the summer, and their feed intake suffered during heat stress events. Because of the differences in how cattle responded to heat stress, the SDSDU researchers are considering a limitation on the number of black-hided cattle on feed during the summer months.

With the current year’s group of Charolais-influenced calves already on feed for research in Brookings, work is underway to ensure the next round of cattle brought into Brookings will be sourced from the same rancher. The South Dakota rancher’s herd handling techniques coupled with the herd’s uniformity in size, age, and genetics, plus overall herd health at receiving make these Charolaisinfluence cattle ideal for research.

Having quality, healthy, productive stock from day one is key. The cattle can perform immediately while letting graduate students, staff, and faculty gauge the e cacy of protocols, feed ingredients, and environment without having to hypothesize about why certain animals in groups do not perform or dealing with health issues.

“SDSU’s Ruminant Nutrition Unit and its faculty are evaluated on publishing, grad students completed degrees, and mentoring. The cattle are the tool. The research SDSU does answers questions for cattle feeders in the upper Midwest. How can we use feedstuffs grown here combined with genetics available here? The ultimate goal is to turn the cattle into something that provides a high degree of eating satisfaction to consumers,” Rusche says.

Rusche considers himself a “breed agnostic” stating there are “good ones of every color”. Yet, the veteran cattle producer turned researcher finds the possibilities triggered by early research exciting.

“I think we’ve used color as proxy for quality and value,” he says. “But, we’ve had a chance to feed enough of these [Charolais-influenced cattle] that I’d put them up against an awful lot of cattle in an awful lot of places.”

Rusche continues, “As our knowledge advances, we can evaluate cattle based on their value while being color blind. Biological basis of heterosis has not changed. There are real advantages to using breeds complementary. These [Charolais-sired] cattle have been grading particularly well. The producer has made decisions to use Angus on the female side to make these good calves. It’s hard to find cattle that excel in everything from feed conversion plus quality grade and cutability, but I think we’re seeing that.”

To say SDSU has been pleased with the way their Charolais-influence cattle have performed is an understatement.

“Combining Charolais and Angus genetics to keep quality without having excess fat while maintaining feed e ciency has proven very effective. Small differences in feed conversion adds up in a hurry with the rising cost of feed,” Rusche says.

Identifying cattle sources with exceptional growth, e ciency, and carcass potential is a key component to the future of South Dakota State University’s feedlot research program. Charolais-influenced cattle have proven to meet those criteria well. Given all that’s already been learned, Charolais genetics will likely continue to be an important tool in the university team’s mission to find answers to today’s cattle feeding challenges while also training the next generation of animal scientists.

How did you get involved in the Charolais breed?

Ava & Calley – We started showing 4-H bucket calves and other livestock at a young age, but didn’t start showing the Charolais breed until four years ago. Ava first started showing Charolais heifers and once we started showing together, it made every show more eventful to set goals and compete with each other.

What other activities do you participate in?

Ava – Outside of the Charolais industry, I am involved in our local county 4-H program, where I show cattle, swine and poultry. I have served as president of our Needles & Nails 4-H Club and have participated at the state level in the 4-H Presentation contests and 4-H clothing and style show. I am a freshman this year and just started jumping into all the high school activities. I am involved in FFA, volleyball, track, speech, one-act play, honor choir, swing choir, and represent my class on student council. My agricultural experiences have helped me develop skills that I can use beyond the cattle industry

Calley – I have shown a variety of animals in our county 4-H program including crossbred market steers, different poultry breeds and crossbred pigs. I am also involved in 4-H speech, favorite foods contest, and participated at the state level in the 4-H fashion show. Currently, I serve as the historian of our Needles & Nails 4-H club. I also participate in junior high volleyball, basketball, speech, track, band, and the math counts program.

What is your favorite memory that you have made?

Ava – My favorite memories are from Charolais Junior Nationals every year! Meeting new people from across the country and getting involved in all the contests are the highlight of my show season. My favorite memory was the fitting competition during my first junior national in Brookings. My younger sister and I, along with a few other Nebraska members, really enjoyed working together as a team. I learned a lot that week, and I still look forward to seeing the people we worked with at Junior National each year.

Calley – Some of my favorite memories while working with my Charolais cattle are attending Charolais Junior National each year. My first year attending in 2020, I learned about the AIJCA conference and had a blast competing in multiple contests. This year at Char-cation I decided to sign up for the impromptu speech competition at the last minute. I ended up getting reserve champion, so I plan on doing that contest again in the future. My favorite memories of Junior Nationals include our team winning second place in team sales along with third place in the quiz bowl competition. I enjoyed working with these people and look forward to seeing them at Charolais Junior National next year.

each year promoting the Charolais industry. I really enjoy doing this contest because it gives people who don’t have personal experiences with livestock a glimpse of the agricultural lifestyle and the challenges of producing livestock. I also received the Livestock Achievement Award in the beef cattle division at the Nebraska State Fair for my Charolais breeding heifer project and my involvement in the 4-H program.

Who has been your role model in the Charolais breed?

Calley – My role models in the Charolais industry include my neighbors, friends, and immediate family. Our neighbors, the Dybdal family, were the main reason we started showing Charolais. Other families such as the Utech and Sudbeck families have been of great support and make going to cattle shows so much fun! My family supports me and also helps me with preparation for the ring, along with helping me wash and clip my calves at home. None of my accomplishments would be possible without the help and advice of my family and friends.

What are your future goals?

Ava – My goal is to continue working with livestock and become a large animal veterinarian. This is a demanding profession, and I am grateful for the agricultural opportunities I have had to teach me the fundamentals of the livestock industry from a young age. I know that my experience in the Charolais industry will help me reach my goals and give me a background into the challenges of working with livestock.

Calley – My goals include participating at future Charolais Junior Nationals, growing my Charolais herd, and going to more cattle shows throughout the year. In the future, I would like to have a career involving either law or medicine. The discipline, leadership, responsibility, and time management skills I have developed while showing cattle will help me to succeed in achieving my future goals.

Q: What do you want to accomplish as an AIJCA board member?

A: As a Charolais board member, I want to give back to an organization that I have loved being a part of growing up. I want to do so by working with kids at shows and helping put on contests. I hope to help young kids find a breed they feel welcome in as I did.

Q: What is your favorite Junior National contest?

A: My favorite Junior National contest would have to be the fitting contest. I love going to the Junior National every year to put together a team to compete in the contest. I have had the chance to be on teams with some kids I didn’t know, and it was a great way to get to know new people and make new friends.

Q:. What is your favorite thing about the Charolais Breed?

A: My favorite thing about the Charolais breed is the people. Throughout my show career, I have had the opportunity to be surrounded by great people at shows and the Junior National which is part of the reason it is my favorite Junior Nationals.

Q:. Who inspired you to become a Junior Board Member?

A: I was inspired to become a Junior Board Member by seeing them help in the ring throughout my Junior National experiences and decided I was going to try to be on the board one day.

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: Outside of the Charolais industry, my other interests include playing football and wrestling. I played football this fall at Macomb High School where we had a great season ending 10-11. I have also just started my wrestling season. Other than sports, I am also highly involved in my school’s FFA program and my 4-H club. I enjoy showing other species outside of cattle such as pigs and sheep.

Q: If you could have a lifetime supply of anything, what would it be?

55 Years Breeding Polled Performance Charolais




This is your invitation to attend our Retirement and Dispersal Sale on October 3, 2023. The retirement party on Saturday, September 30 will be held in Mark & Becky’s “Shed” next to where the cattle will be penned. We hope many of the friends we have made over the past 55 years in the Charolais business will attend. Starting with our first cow DE Lora, whose first calf for us was Double-H Laura, the first AICA Sterling Dam of Distinction whose head now hangs in the AICA office, we have strived to produce highly productive cattle. All of the herd is polled and most are from embryo transplant and AI breeding.

During our 55 years in Charolais, we have received many rewards. Harlin served many years as the Minnesota Charolais Association President and later was elected to the AICA Board of Directors where he served for 17 years and was named the AICA President. During this time, Sue served as Charolais Dees President for 15 years. Howard & Mark were AIJCA Presidents and Dale was named AIJCA Herdsman of the Year while all three were on the AIJCA Board of Directors. Several of our greatest honors were when we were inducted into the AICA Hall of Fame as well as being honored by the junior association as both the Conference Honoree and the Show Dedicatee in different years. The National Charolais Show in Fort Worth, Texas was dedicated to us in 2009. Prior we were named AICA Seedstock Producer of the Year and in 2006 Harlin was named AICA Herdsman of the Year at the National Show in Denver.

Some of you will remember the bull Double-H Polled Showman who put our herd on the map when he was named National Reserve Calf Champion in 1980 at the National Show in San Antonio. From there, he went on to be named Grand Champion many times across the U.S. and Canada. Showman sired 2,050 registered progeny between the U.S. and Canada. We even found his progeny in England during our travels to the World Charolais Congress. Another sire we owned with a group of progressive breeders was KC Stolichnaya who was named to the AICA Roll of Excellence Sires. Recently our home-raised bull Double-H Outback was National Reserve Junior Champion at the National Show in Denver. Several of his excellent offspring as well as his service will sell in this sale.

Howard, Laura, Chris, Alyssa, and Matt have owned cattle at our place throughout the years, but since they live in Massachusetts we don’t get to see them as much as we would like. Their animals will sell in this sale.

Dale and Jill along with Dallee, Georgia and Josie will carry on in the Charolais business as 2H Cattle Company so we hope to continue meeting up with you while watching the girls at their shows. All 5 of them are heavily involved in the business.

Mark along with Becky, Taylor, Payton and Riley have been a major part of our operation for many years and their cattle will also sell in the sale. Mark’s job has taken a lot of time away from the farm so he will not be able to help us as much as he used to (He has been a major part of managing our operation) and with Harlin’s advancing age we have decided it is time to hang it up.

We are hoping to see many of you on September 30 and if you are unable to join us, we hope you will follow our offerings on the internet.

Harlin 1968 2 year old homozygous polled daughter of Fargo and the great M6 Ms Nancy 6100, this super young cow has a M6 Bells & Whistles daughter at side who had an adj. 205 day wt. of 777 lb. DOUBLE-H 6100s Beauty 008H ET

DOUBLE-H Dream On 627D ET

Dream On has made a tremendous impact on our herd. In addition to selling this super donor we will have several fancy daughters available.

Dream On was a Junior National Cow-Calf Class Winner as a 3 year old. Her sire is the Canadian National Show Grand Champion Bull and her dam has embryo calves all over the U.S. Her Grand Dam, the great 248 cow, certainly needs no introduction.

The best show bull we have had in many years. Bleck Charolais of Stewart, MN purchased 1/2 interest when he was only 7 months old. Outback is an Outlier son who was National Reserve Junior Champion in Denver at the 53rd National Show and Grand Champion at 2022 North Star Classic. Many of the females in our sale are carrying his calves who will be born next spring.

Outback had a 205 day weight of 801lb. and a 365 day wt of 1403 lb.

His first calf is Double-H Fergie who was shown 5 times before she was 7 months old and was a Champion every time even though she was often shown against much older heifers. Watch for her in the shows this summer!

continued from page 17

Charolais Bull at this year’s Agribition was SVY Mayfield 30H, who I first admired the day before. The following day, Mayfield was selected as the Supreme Champion bull out of 47 entries in the Agribition Supreme Bull Drive. No longer incognito, Mayfield is now famous, and I predict his daughter, SVY Dina 211K will be also. And now the Paul Harvey part of the story: a few weeks before Agribition, two U.S. Charolais breeders purchased an interest in SVY Mayfield 30H. The new owners plan to have Mayfield on display at the 2023 National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. I tell you this story to backup my belief that strengthening industry relations by traveling to other countries, building personal relationships, and conducting joint genetic evaluations will lay the groundwork for an increase in International Trade……. which goes in both directions!
