Bamboo Road Farms started with a plan!

At Bamboo we selected a small group of Charolais females to build our herd from. Those cows had proven production records and proven genetics. They were proven cow families, like JWK Vanessa D029. Her daughters were the start of our building process. We set up a program with a clear goal and made the commitment to consistently follow the PLAN. Using modern technology (AI, ET, IVF) we have built our present cow herd. The herd consists of cow families from the original cows selected in the PLAN. We are pleased with the results and would welcome you to visit Bamboo and see the results. Welcome!

VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Consistency and Continuity are Priceless The value of a network By the time this magazine reaches your mailbox, the 40th edition of the AIJCA Junior National Show will be underway or just concluded in Springfield, Missouri. In fact, every breed association in America will gather for their respective junior events sometime this summer. Each year we discuss the importance of these events to youth involved or wanting to become involved in the beef industry. State associations submit requests to host these events years in advance. Once approved by the junior boards, the states launch full-fledged fund-raising efforts to offset expenses. Facilities, meals, entertainment, accommodations, awards—the list seems endless and is, no doubt, expensive. Hosting a modern day Junior National requires a Herculean effort from any state willing to take on the job. Forty years. A young teenager exhibiting in the first AIJCA Junior National, by now, is likely a grand-parent. If he or she remained in the Charolais business, their children will also likely have been members of AIJCA. While membership is important, arguably the more valuable contribution

At the risk of being annually repetitive, regardless of age, we encourage you to attend. Having a first-hand view of an association managed by tomorrow’s decision makers is one awesome experience! Moving from the junior experience to the mainstream beef business, watching the wide swings in the cash market and trying to understand the reasoning is beyond baffling. Depending on which analyst’s report one reads, it appears to be equally perplexing for the most knowledgeable. The good news is, from a consumer perspective, beef is still favored. The business to business publication, Meatingplace, recently reported that the dollar sales of fresh ground beef at the retail level rose 3.9 percent, to $8.2 billion for the year 2015. More than half of Americans eat at least one burger a week. Ground beef accounts for upwards of 60% of all U.S. percapita beef consumption. Meatingplace also reports the demand for higher quality ground sirloin, ground chuck and round, have increased from 8 to nearly 16 percent. The good news for the beef industry is the fact these numbers have

“Having a first-hand view of an association managed by tomorrow’s decision makers is one awesome experience!”

is consistency and continuity. Every solid organization, youth or adult, is dependent upon consistent leadership. AIJCA is fortunate to have had four decades of mentors, leaders and youth willing to roll up their sleeves and do whatever tasks necessary to do the right thing for the right reason. Another intangible for a junior investing time and money in AIJCA is the value of a network. Granted, not a single kid understands the importance of a network, but we all know at some point they will. To begin to build a network of friends today and peers tomorrow that will continue through college and potentially through their professional careers is priceless. Obviously, not all will become beef producers. Some will become doctors, lawyers, bankers, educators or really, anything they want to be. The friendships they make in their first experience as a member of “something”, will serve them well for the rest of their lives. For a city fortunate enough to host a national junior event, the economic impact is significant. A junior national is typically a 5-6 day event. Families are hotel guests, restaurant guests, sight-seeing, sports, etc. The bottom line is collectively these families make a huge economic impact on any city lucky enough to be the host.

increased over the year, not just during grilling season. Doug Bush, sales manager at Bush Brothers Provision Company and chair of the foodservice committee at the North American Meat Institute summarizes the report by saying, “With the gourmet burger craze, initially everybody went to the extremes in terms of raw materials, with guys grinding oxtail hamburgers and all these crazy mixes. We still make some of those, but we have found people always come back to the old-style traditional hamburger. People have returned to what they want: Something that tastes like good, old hamburgers.” Whether we’re discussing the value of a 40-year-old junior event or the essence of our business, the hamburger, the importance of consistency and continuity is priceless. It is an understatement to say that the beef industry starts and ends with people. People that invest in Charolais genetics or incorporate Charolais into their commercial operations have a lot of “skin in the game”. We invest in families, friends and organizations, in lifelong, generational efforts to produce a meat protein being consumed by other families around the world.

Performance Deadline

Performance data must be submitted to the AICA office by July 15th to be included in the Fall 2016 Genetic Analysis

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.

Advertising Deadline - The Cattleman’s Source

The deadline to place advertising in the 2016-2017 Cattleman’s Source is August 1. Contact your field representative about advertising opportunities. Refer to page 89 in this issue. Females Inventories Now Due

WHR Inventories received between May 1 through May 31st – $20 per female; after June 1st – $32 per female. The WHR program 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. Enrollment is available online. Click into “My Inventory” to get started. 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. 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.

Nottke Takes AICA Helm with S ‘Eyes Wide Open’ by Linda Eck

truggling with a day that is only 24 hours long, Bill Nottke stepped into the helm of the American- International Charolais Association with both eyes wide open. So much so, that sun glasses are required! Quoting the old Timbuk3 song, “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades,” Nottke believes the song title is an accurate portrayal of the direction in which the Charolais breed is heading. “We have the product for the country’s commercial cattle herd, regardless of the geographical area,” touted the AICA president. “Despite branded beef programs, most cattle are sold by the pound and we help produce more. The feedlots enjoy the feeding efficiency and carcass value of Charolais cross cattle.” “All-in-all, Charolais cattle make CENTS…a lot of CENTS!” added Nottke. Moving up the association ranks and into the president’s seat, Nottke is no stranger to leadership roles. In addition to owning

Riverdale Land & Livestock near Cuba, Mo., he also owns and operates Riverdale Packaging Corporation, manufacturers of packaging products and Custom Midwest Corporation, a digital printing company, both in St. Louis. A Charolais breeder for nearly 20 years, Nottke refers to himself as a newcomer to the breed, which first struck his fancy while he was in high school during the late 60s. “One day while thumbing through the Charolais Journal in Ag class, I came across a picture of the old Sam 951 bull and thought he was perhaps the most magnificent animal I had ever seen,” Nottke reminisced. “I promised myself then, that if I ever had the chance, I would raise Charolais cattle.” That opportunity came in 1997, when he was fortunate Riverdale headquarters working facility barn and shop. enough to find a cattle ranch just outside of Cuba, Mo. in a pretty area known as the “Gateway to the Ozarks.” The location was just a little over an hour’s drive from his home and business interests in the city. Initially, Nottke purchased 55 commercial spring bred cows and then bought two registered bulls from Windy Hill Charolais Farms. From that start, he began to acquire females from various sales, with a couple of large groups coming from the Dewey Dispersal in Kansas and the Creighton Dispersal in Texas. Most of the initial females were Wienk breeding and from there, western genetics from the DeBruycker and Eaton herds were added and proven A.I. sires were used to develop the cow herd. Today, Nottke is proud to say Riverdale Land & Livestock is solely a Charolais seedstock operation. He also sees his operation, When guests visit Bill at the ranch, if they stay for supper, beef is served. as being much like many others. “I’m not sure we’re unique,” said Nottke noting that Riverdale Land & Livestock does as most breeders do in trying to supply the best Charolais genetics possible with the resources available. “We are perhaps like the majority of my fellow breeders who are part-timers that have a day job somewhere else, or their Charolais program is a smaller part of their overall agricultural operation.” Nottke, who runs 175 to 200 registered females, recognizes it would be nice to have the type of operation that is large enough to maintain a lifestyle from only raising Charolais cattle, but also realizes that for the majority of breeders that is not possible or practical. “If each of our 3,000 plus members had 250 cows, we may find it hard to market 400,000 Charolais bulls annually,” said At the Mexico National Charolais Show during the 2016 World Congress, Nottke. “I feel the group of members I fall into represents Bill represented the U.S. in placing the Breeder’s Herd Competition. the backbone of our breed - investing in leading genetics to enhance not only their own programs, but the overall breed; supporting the association with their membership and activity, and providing performance information from a broad spectrum of diverse geographical and climatic environments to support our genetic evaluations.” Nottke, with the help of Farm Managers Butch and Jennifer Alsup, utilizes the AICA Whole Herd Reward (WHR) program to help improve the accuracy of EPDs. Collecting data such as birth weights and weaning weights on each calf crop is a simple and straightforward system that promotes complete reporting and performance information. Early each year, Nottke is also able to update his current herd inventory through the program. Genomics are another tool that Nottke feels will have a Bill accepting recognition for the United States during World Congress. 22  

positive impact on the Charolais breed, not only on the accuracy of EPDs, but in keeping beef as a viable and economic food source. “Not being an animal scientist, I have to admit I don’t completely comprehend all that is involved, but as a layman listening to the experts, it certainly sounds like they are on the right course,” says Nottke, adding that identifying and substantiating additional genetic markers through the use of genomics is also necessary in order to propel beef forward to demanding consumers seeking quality and value. “I think most bull buyers are starting to look harder and deeper into EPDs than they have in the past, but as always their biggest concern is getting a live calf on the ground, therefore birth weight and calving ease is still at the top of most buyers’ list,” says Nottke. Noting that many customers have put old stereotypes of the breed behind them in recognizing the remarkable transformation Charolais cattle have made into the modern, efficient and phenotypically correct animal of today, Nottke is cautious about the future. “One of my concerns for the future is popularity of the Charolais bull,” said Nottke. “There have been times in some parts of the country where you could sell a bull because he was white; we as breeders should know what a good bull prospect is and what should not be sold as a breeding animal. It is shortsighted to make an extra couple of bucks selling an inferior animal, when given the possibility of losing a future customer for yourself and the breed. It’s really pretty simple - if you wouldn’t use him to breed your own cows, don’t sell him to someone else.” Riverdale Land and Livestock sells 50-60 long yearling bulls each year. The bulls are backgrounded from weaning to 13 months of age and then placed on Purina Accuration. Most of their cattle sales are through private treaty, with some bulls marketed through consignment sales. “I would like for us to have our own production sale, but with the commitments we have to other business interests, I really don’t feel we have the time to devote to putting on a first-class sale, and I would not settle for anything less,” said Nottke. Thanks to customer referrals and repeat buyers, Nottke reports that Riverdale’s seemingly small customer base is growing. “It is gratifying to get a phone call from a guy who says ‘I bought one of your bulls at XYZ sale and would like to come see what you may have,’ or even better yet, ‘my friend/neighbor bought one of your bulls and says I should talk to you’,” said Nottke. Aside from performance, fertility and phenotype play important roles in the Riverdale program. “We try to select females that breed on the first exposure and breed back quickly after calving,” said Nottke, noting that bulls are used that will pass these traits on to their daughters. “I also enjoy looking at them every day and want them to look good.” As leader of the AICA Executive Committee, it’s important to Nottke that the association continues long-range planning efforts to ensure the association can continue to provide breeders with services important to keeping the breed relevant to the beef cattle industry. In considering environmental issues, food safety and concerns

of the general public, Nottke encourages all cattlemen to support the efforts of organizations such as the National Beef Cattlemen’s Association, Beef Improvement Federation and their state cattlemen’s association in a united voice that accurately portrays the truths in environmental and food issues as they relate to the cattle industry. “I truly believe there is strength in numbers and we should join and support these organizations in their fight for the fair treatment of all segments of our industry.” A strong supporter of the American International Junior Charolais Association, Nottke enjoys his five grandchildren when they visit the ranch and the rolling fescue pastures that make up Riverdale Land and Livestock. He enrolled each of them in the AIJCA when they were just a month old, and while the oldest is only seven, he is looking forward to their active participation in the association “in the not too distant future.”

“I truly believe there is strength in numbers and we should join and support these organizations in their fight for the fair treatment of all segments of our industry.”

Charolais Quality Customer Service Customer service is about making personal connections. by Paige Nelson

I

t’s the start of a busy breeding season for an eager yearling bull. Just after sun up, he finds a group of cows in the far corner of the pasture. The strong scent of a standing female is irresistible, and he attempts to breed her. No one witnesses the event, but when the cattleman checks the cows later that day, he notices his high-priced yearling bull, the one he spent hours pouring over sale books to find, won’t put weight on his left front foot. A thousand questions cross the rancher’s mind. What should he do about his bull? Can/should this injury be attributed to breeding? Did the yearling just stretch a muscle that will be healed by the end of the week? Can dumb luck be blamed? Did he land in a gopher hole and is now permanently lame? Is this a sign of poor longevity in his genetic line that he can’t withstand a hard dismount? Is he over conditioned? Is he a klutz with poor balance? Are his feet and legs weak from the diet he was grown on all winter? Is there time to wait and see if he heals, or should another bull be sent as a replacement? Should the seedstock guy be called, or is this just part of owning cattle, so live with it? There’s no easy answer. Each cattle producer will have to make the best decision he or she can in this situation. However, a good working, personal relationship with the bull supplier can’t hurt.

Setting an

ETProgram

By Heather Smith Thomas

n today’s cattle industry there are some breeders buying cattle for the first time and wanting to learn all they can about and embryo transplants. Embryo transfers—from a donor cow to a recipient cow that serves as a surrogate mother to carry that pregnancy and raise the calf—have been a part of bovine reproduction options now for more than 50 years. Darrel DeGrofft, DVM,an embryologist in Loveland, Colorado (Colorado Genetics, Inc.) says the first embryo transfer (ET) calf was born in 1951. “ET has been used commercially in North America since the early 1970’s, with embryo freezing technology following, during the 1980’s. The use of ET has several benefits for the producer, as it allows the cattle breeder to more rapidly gain overall genetic quality in a herd. We can collect multiple embryos from a superior purebred cow, several times during the year, and greatly increase the number of offspring from that cow,” he says. This is a way to more quickly multiply the best genetics in the herd, creating more replacement females or embryos to sell. As long as the donor cow is a good producing individual, a person can collect a lot of embryos within a few years. It’s also a way to more quickly increase the calf numbers in a small herd. “We have a client right now, in the Wagyu breed, who is considering buying a few donor cows. He’s been using frozen embryos but now he’d like to collect his own and use them to increase his herd a little faster,” says DeGrofft. “When breeding the donor cows, a person can use a different sire for each ET procedure, if desired, to get varied genetics either to sell or to keep in the herd. You should be selecting donor cows of superior genetic quality, and selecting a mating that will have marketability and economic worth. The sale of embryos is very common today. We have clients who frequently buy frozen embryos from other people, and we transfer those into their recipient cows,” he says. “I started working with ET in 1973 and have been doing so ever since. Many things have changed in this industry but some things have stood the test of time and are very valuable today. One of these important things is nutrition,” he says.

NUTRITION AND MANAGEMENT OF DONOR AND RECIPIENT COWS – “Adequate energy, protein,

minerals, etc. are crucial for these cows. We like to see the donor cows and recipient cows in a body condition score about 5.5 to 6. We don’t like to see the donor too fat. If donor cows get up to a body condition score of 6.5 or higher, we see a decrease in viable embryos that can be collectedvfrom those cows,” DeGrofft says. “There is good reason for that; there is research data to show why fat cows tend to have reproductive problems. If cows get too fat they have hormonal problems, metabolic problems, and a decrease in reproduction (whether with AI, ET or bull bred).” Recipient selection and management is much the same as 30  

J U N E / J U L Y 2016

for donor cows. “We like to use early calvers that are at least 65 to 70 days post-partum before we consider using them as recipients. We prefer middle aged cows, with good dispositions. The producer will have to put those cows through the chute to prepare them to receive an embryo, and may not want cattle that are difficult to handle. When they calve, a person also wants cows with good dispositions, making it much easier to handle the calf, ear tag it, etc.” he says. The recipient cow should be reproductively sound, with a good calving record. “We wouldn’t want to try to use a cow that had been open for a couple of years. We also want these cows to have adequate milking ability, and we try to keep the nutrition the same as the donor cow before we transfer the embryos. We also use Multimin 90, the injectable trace mineral product, for all of our donors and our recipients, along with the mineral ration the rancher is currently using. We’ve been doing that for about 12 years and there is a data to show that this can result in an increase in embryo quality and pregnancy rate. We will be involved in a research study this year, to further evaluate embryo quality and production with use of this trace mineral,” says DeGrofft. From a nutrition standpoint, the recipients need an adequate diet. “We tell our clients that they need to maintain a very similar nutrition program after the embryos are transferred (or the AI breeding) for about 30 to 40 days, if possible in order to maintain early pregnancies. This can decrease the possibility of early embryonic losses. Research has substantiated this factor, and we personally have seen this. One of my biggest fears is when heifers have gone through an AI program in a feedlot and a few days later are turned out on a little bit of green grass in April that is very low in nutrition. We know that they will suffer some pregnancy loss. The heifers need to be on the same nutritional level for 30 to 40 days to help maintain that early pregnancy,” he says. It is important to test the feed and water in order to balance the ration properly for minerals, protein and energy. “We find areas from ranch to ranch (and they may not be very far apart) that are too high in selenium or the rancher maybe be feeding something that’s high in nitrates or selenium, or the soil may be high in molybdenum which ties up copper. Even when people buy the same mineral ration that their neighbor does, it still may not be the right balance for their own soils and feed,” he explains. “We have a consulting nutritionist who has worked with us for 15 years or more and we use her expertise a great deal, when evaluating rations from information each client provides. Over the years, we’ve found a tremendous variability as we travel to about 10 states to do ET work, and we find big differences in some of these locations. If they don’t test the feed and water, they won’t know what they need,” he says. “We also ask that they have an adequate identification system for the recipient cows. Once in a while we run into some that don’t even have an ear tag. We suggest that they have two ear tags, one that they can identify when the embryos are being transferred into these cows, and another ear tag identifying the mating. It is very important to have at least two forms of ID and some people even write down the number of a metal tag they might have in the ear, like a brucellosis tag, or another metal

clip tag, using it as a back-up form of ID in the event that the recipient cow loses both ear tags,” he says. That way there’s no question about the genetics of the resulting calf.

PREGNANCIES - When collecting embryos from a beef

donor cow, the average number is about 6 to 6.5 embryos per flush on a cow, and about 3 or 4 on a virgin heifer. “About 30% of the donor cows we flush do not produce viable embryos. Statistics indicate that about 70% of the embryos collected are from about one-third of the donor cows. Some donor cows produce embryos very well and some do not. The owner has to decide how long to continue working with a cow without acceptable results, or just put her back in the herd and let her raise just one calf each year, and select another individual to use as a donor cow,” he says. “People also ask about pregnancy rates. Over the past 30 to 40 years, the factor that most affects pregnancy rate is the quality and management of the recipient cows. The donor cows are usually looked after very well and the embryos we freeze are very good quality; the freezing process has been the same for 30 to 40 years. We can show data (not only from our company but also from others) that the important factor is the recipient cow—her nutrition, age, reproductive soundness, and how she is managed. In a good herd, we should be getting a pregnancy rate of 55 to 65% depending on whether they are fresh or frozen embryos,” says DeGrofft. “Fresh embryos give a slightly higher pregnancy rate, 5 to 7% more than a frozen embryo pregnancy rate. We anticipate 55 to 65% but have had clients we’ve worked for over the years that get 65 to 70% because they understand the management of the donors and the recipients. Due to their good management, we get better results—not so much because of what we do, but because of what they do,” he explains. Costs vary amongst companies. People need to contact their ET company and look at the costs that might be involved, whether for collection of embryos to be frozen or transferred immediately into the recipient, or whether they want to do IVF (in vitro fertilization) using sexed semen. Not as many people in the beef industry (compared to dairy) are using IVF or sexed semen for producing embryos. “Most of the producers we work with can use both the heifers and the bull calves, because they tell us they can place a heifer back into their herd, or a bull for their annual bull sale. We don’t often get requests to use sexed semen for any of the donor cows,” says DeGrofft. “The use of sexed semen creates a different scenario, as we have to use a specialized protocol in order to utilize sexed semen properly in a donor cow, or an AI project. It’s not the same as when using conventional semen, primarily because of the reduced number of sperm cells in a straw of sexed semen,” he says. Colorado Genetics does all of their reproductive work on the producer’s farm or ranch. “The producers therefore need to evaluate their facilities, and the labor to put the cows through the ET program and synchronize the recipients. Timing is very important, so it is crucial that they follow the superovulation protocol correctly. An experienced AI technician is also required for breeding the donor cows,” says DeGrofft. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

INTERNATIONAL MARKET FOR EMBRYOS - “We are finding a larger demand

every year for frozen embryos—to sell to other clients, or for export. We get inquiries from various countries in South America, Europe, Russia, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and others for frozen embryos. As we look at the international scene, there is an increasing demand for U.S. genetics,” DeGrofft says. Embryos are a very bio-secure method for exporting seedstock genetics. A person can ship embryos even when importations of live animals is prohibited. “We know of no known diseases that have been transmitted from the donor cows to the recipient cows by exporting embryos. There are strict regulations for preparing embryos for export and there is virtually no risk for disseminating disease,” he says. When a producer is selecting semen for a mating to produce embryos, if they may later want to export embryos internationally, they need to use CSS (Certified Semen Services) approved semen. They also need to use a company that has an accredited veterinarian in the American Embryo Transfer Association to collect and prepare those embryos for export,” says DeGrofft. Shipping embryos to other countries has advantages over sending live cattle, besides disease issues. “The embryo transfer calves are born and raised in the local environment so they are often much better adapted than any animals that could be sent from the U.S. to a foreign country,” he explains.

Directors By Area

Hi, my name is Ty Dybdal and I have just finished my sophomore year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln majoring in Ag Economics with an Animal Science Minor. I have been active in the Charolais industry my entire life. I have participated in Junior Nationals since I was 8 years old, a small boy in a large cowboy hat singing “God Bless the USA.” I have always been active in showing cattle but just as important I have been very involved in each of the contests available at Junior National. From speeches to photos, all of the contests have made an impact on my Junior National experience. Two of my biggest benefits of going to Junior National is learning new skills and meeting new people. Through each of the contests, I have gotten to know people on a more personal level rather than just being acquaintances in the cattle industry. A program that I greatly encourage everyone to get

from people that shared similar interests. I have gained many valuable lessons during my experience, from showing techniques and feeding strategies to talking about sports and future plans. Junior National is not just another cattle show— it is a place to participate, share new ideas and make lasting relationships. One of the most influential things from my experience has been serving on the Junior Board. There are many great benefits to serving on the board besides the great people I had the opportunity to work with. I have been given the opportunity to put my leadership, communication and organizational skills to practice when assisting in planning and organizing of Junior Nationals. Serving on the board has given me plenty in return. This spring, I was given the opportunity to attend the 2016 Youth Beef Industry Congress. YBIC is a leadership conference where Junior Boards representing

“ Cherish the memories and make the most of every opportunity.” involved in is the Junior Merit Program. This program allows all your success and involvement from school to cattle to be recognized at a national level. It entails everything from 4-H, FFA, sports and more. I feel that this program is super important as everyone should strive to be well-rounded individuals, as well as promoting the Charolais industry. Being a well-rounded individual shows your diversity and will make you more marketable in your career path. Being involved at Junior National has taught me better communication skills and has given me the drive to work harder to succeed toward my own goals. These are just two of the many skills that attending and participating in Junior National has instilled in me. No one grows and improves themselves by just going with the flow and watching as other people pass by. Improvement comes as you get and stay involved and work to your greatest potential. A past employer once told me, “If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.” You grow from the challenges that you are faced with. You may not always win – but you gain a great deal in the process. As I stayed involved, I was able to become more confident when talking to people because I was associating with and learning 32  

J U N E / J U L Y 2016

different cattle breeds from across the nation gather. It was a great networking opportunity, as well as an opportunity to enhance leadership skills and learn team building skills to make our Junior Board even stronger. I, along with the other Junior Board members, have also had the opportunity to visit the Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. What a generous donation center! We were able to see firsthand what we are donating to and how the pop tabs that you donate make an effect on the organization. Junior Nationals is an opportunity for you to get involved and become active. Like that little boy in the big cowboy hat singing “God Bless the USA,” it is a place to take the risks and get out of your comfort zone. The Charolais industry is full of some of the most humble and down-to-earth people that I have met in my entire life. So cherish the memories and make the most of every opportunity. Become a part of the Charolais Family! I am excited to see each of you this summer traveling the same journey that I have. Hope you enjoy Junior National 2016! . CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

Missouri Charolais Breeders Association Membership Dear Charolais Breeders, As Charolais breeders, we have a lot to be excited about, despite the downward trend in the overall cattle markets. This past spring, Charolais sales remained very strong – an indicator that our product remains in demand with commercial and purebred cattleman alike. With eight of the top 25 bull and female sales in the country, the Missouri Charolais Breeders are celebrating another year of success on a national level. As reported in the Charolais Journal, twenty-two bull and female sales across Missouri during the past 12 months grossed $4.6M – 407 bulls averaged $5,353; 574 females averaged $4,217. Further, Charolaissired calves have consistently topped feeder calf sales at auction markets across the state. Considering that Missouri cattle numbers grew exponentially for the second year in a row, experiencing a growth of over 5% in the last two years, we stand in prime position to take advantage of the added marketplace for Charolais genetics. More cattle = more business. Charolais breeders are primed and ready to take advantage of the current state of the industry because we have what matters most to commercial cattleman: pounds and profit. Now, more than ever, more pounds are the path to more value in the commercial market. Currently, Missouri is #2 for active members, #3 for junior members, and #4 for enrolled females. With this much success in our state, the excitement is building for another successful year marketing Charolais genetics. A quick glance through our Breeder Directory shows a dedicated group of breeders committed to marketing the best Charolais genetics you can find. There are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of Missouri Charolais genetics. The Missouri State Fair continues to be the largest state fair for open and junior Charolais shows. The Ten Grand Sale is coming back to the American Royal with some fresh updates (stay tuned!), which will be in conjunction with the Royal Breeders Classic and the National ROE Show. Our fall MCBA female and bull sale will be November 5, 2016, in Springfield. Also several breeders are having fall sales, so check out our calendar of upcoming events. The Juniors are looking forward to hosting the Junior National in Springfield at the end of June this summer. Feel free to stop by any of these events and get to know our breeders and their cattle. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for updates on our website. Also feel free to contact any board member or breeder if you have questions on upcoming activities and how to be involved. Sincerely, Jeannine Doughty MCBA President

The Stakes are

HIGH

Bayvue Farms has upped it’s ante by adding 100 Angus cows and 25 Brangus and Ultra Black cows. This is not a game, not a hobby, not a past time,

it is our business.

Along with Kyle, Kristin and Corey — the Angus, Brangus and Ultra Blacks are from Outfit 8, a Division of Bayvue Farms. The Angus, Brangus and Ultra Blacks will carry the

brand. These breeds add value to our operation.

Charolais for problem free and true performance. Angus for maternal and calving ease. Brangus for southern acceptance. Ultra Blacks (50% Angus 50% Brangus) for the ultimate southern female, bred to a Charolais and the offspring will out perform anything! The Charolais are the backbone of our operation with their problem free and true performance. We will be selling close to 200 bulls this year of five breeds— Charolais, Angus, Brangus, Ultra Black, Horned and Polled Hereford.

Commercial cattleman, if you are not using crossbreeding in your program, you are leaving 20 to 23% heterosis advantage of weight and longevity on the table.

We have topped sales all over the south. Come look at over 150 bulls at one stop. No smoke and mirrors here. The bulls sort themselves for superiority and inferiority!

“We keep it simple, quality bulls at a reasonable price!” Steve Swanson, Bull Development & Sales, 573-694-2697 Kyle Swanson, Cow Herd & Management, 573-694-0474 Kristin Van Natta, Records & Finance Corey Van Natta, AI & Reproductive Management

all bull owners keep full salvage value on any problem bull. “We think when we put out a product, we need to stand behind it,” Galen states. “Bulls shouldn’t have feet trouble or semen trouble. Now, if somebody mistreats a bull, that’s different. But anything from a genetic standpoint, we’re going to stand behind it for three years.” Mark Diederich, owner/operator of Mark Diederich Family Farms of southern Washington County, Kan., has known Galen since 1984 and has operated an embryo transfer cooperator herd with Fink Beef Genetics since 1990. In Diederich’s experience, the Fink guarantee is so strong that if a bull is gimpy on sale day, buyers will pay the same for that bull as they would with others of similar EPDs because they know Galen will stand behind him. “When you stand back and look at it from Galen’s standpoint,” says Diederich, “you have the full confidence that [Galen] thought that bull was going to work because at the end of the day, he was just donating that bull to you (if it turns out to have a problem). [Galen] gets no income at all off of (a problem) bull. “If there are…problems it would be far better for Galen just to take that bull to the sale barn vs. running him through his auction. How can you have a better warranty or guarantee than that?” Diederich poses. As a tribute to Fink Beef Genetics’ slogan of “outside the box thinking,” the operation offers credit on bull purchases when customers turn in feed and carcass data on individual Fink bull offspring. “It kind of encourages people to feed cattle, keep track of what they’re doing, and it gives us data to do some advertising with.” he says. Finks offer free nationwide delivery of bulls, volume discounts and try to pair customers with beef industry alliances like GeneNet™ and U.S. Premium Beef®. All first-time bull buyers are visited within the first year of buying a bull. Probably one of the most widely used Fink customer service options is the email blast. Anytime any of Fink’s customers are selling any class of cattle anywhere, Finks will send an email to cattle buyers all across the country. Finks strive to put as much information in the email as possible. They see the email blast as a tool their entire customer base can use. “If there’s anything that can help a buyer feel a little better about knowing something about them, that’s why we do it,” explains Galen. Diederich has seen the benefits of both sides of the email blast. When he was marketing 800-weight calves, he liked the email as he felt it made buyers aware of his calves. Now, he is in the heifer purchasing business and uses the email blast to find high-quality Fink-sired females. On a personal note, Diederich says, the thing he appreciates most is Galen’s honesty and personal touch when it comes to recommending bulls. “He’s willing to come to a producer’s place and look at their cows and make recommendations. It isn’t always the high-dollar bulls that he will recommend. It’s what the producers need,” notes Diederich. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

Cross Mountain Cattle Meeting his customer’s needs are the thoughts that put Rob Farmer of Cross Mountain Cattle of Warrenton, Va., to sleep at night and wake him up in the morning. Since 2003, Rob and his wife, Naomi, have been selling Charolais bulls in what Rob calls “black cattle country.” Recognizing the need for genetic diversity and a forever champion of Charolais, Rob developed a bull sale designed to fit the needs of the cattlemen of the East. The Quest for Quality Sale is hosted annually in April at the Virginia Beef Expo. Rob has compiled an elite offering of Charolais, Red Angus, Angus and Simmental bulls from several different consignors. “The headliners, of course, are the Charolais bulls,” he qualifies. At the 2016 sale, 27 Charolais bulls were sold. Fourteen of which were Cross Mountain Cattle bulls. “I don’t know that there’s been 27 Charolais bulls sold in this part of the country, and I’m talking from Maryland to South Carolina, in probably 20 years,” Rob states.

Rob likes to give most of the credit to the other Charolais producers, “who have rode this ship with me,” he says. The buyers didn’t walk away without a share of compliments for the bull producers, either. “One young man actually said, ‘We really appreciate what you do for us farmers,’ and I think that’s probably the best compliment that I’ve ever received in the cow business. I was halfway embarrassed,” Rob grins. “What we’ve done with the Quest for Quality Sale is try to get a collection of bulls from other consigners, where they can showcase their bulls and get those people to come to their farm, so they have an idea of not only what we’re doing but what someone else is doing, too,” Rob says. Oftentimes, says Rob, someone will call him looking for a bull. If he doesn’t have one, he likes to point them in the direction of another Charolais producer with a similar frame of mind. “I would rather them buy a Charolais bull than go find a Hereford or an Angus bull because it hasn’t helped the Charolais

breed to peddle a different breed of bull to someone who really wants to try a Charolais bull,” he says. “If they’re looking for a Charolais bull, I want them to find one, whether I’ve got one or not.” Camaraderie is probably the best way to promote your bulls, says Rob. He likes to get out and shake hands with people and offer sorting sticks and/or hats to buyers, whether they ended up with a bull or not. For Rob, the most lasting customer service option he can offer is peace of mind. “When these customers get these yearling bulls, I want them to be able to go to bed at night and feel real confident that, that yearling bull is going to cover those cows,” he says. Besides offering structurally sound, moderately framed bulls, Rob says docility is huge. “I don’t care how good that bull looks, if he’s crazy, we won’t sell him. Our clients are upwards in age. Some of them have grandkids running around the farm. The worst thing you could have is a bull that not only wants to eat you but wants to eat your grandchildren,” he emphasizes. That mindset is what Rob believes drives his returning customer base. There’s nothing Rob enjoys more than showing loyal customers or first-time buyers his cow herd. “I want a man or woman to get out of the truck, walk amongst the calves, push cows out of the way to see these baby calves.” He drives the point home adding, “I tell everybody when they get out of the truck, ‘if you’re soft and gentle, they’ll lick the hide off you.’” Rob also markets show calves to juniors. “You’ve got to think of that first-time junior that’s nine years old, that’s going to get a 500-600 pound animal on a rope. You can’t afford to get that kid hurt.” Steven Putnam owner/operator of Whisper Wood Cattle Company of Middleburg, Va., purchased his first cow from Rob. “Her name was Joy, believe it or not,” he says. She gave me my first live calf.” Since then, he has grown his herd to just over 100 brood cows for a commercial cow-calf operation, but he attributes the success of his journey to having mentors like Rob from which to learn. Putnam says, because he is in the pound business, Charolais bulls made sense, but probably the biggest reason he chose to use Charolais genetics was because he liked the way Rob’s cattle looked. Putnam says he trusts Rob to take care of his genetic needs. “He helps pair me with bulls that he thinks will work best for me. He hasn’t let me down yet.” Putnam entered the cattle business as a novice and has leaned on Rob’s expertise heavily, that is probably what he appreciates most about Rob’s customer service, he says. “I can call Rob, and he’s glad to help in any way he can. He’s showed up at my house before at 2:00 a.m. to help me deliver a calf.” “I’ve asked a million questions, and Rob’s probably gotten about 800,000 of those million,” chuckles Putnam. Overall, in Rob’s opinion “customer service is just having functional cattle that you can really get your eyes on.” CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

AICA was one of the first breed registries to establish a show program, Roll of Excellence (ROE) that provides national level competition on a regional basis across the United States. The AICA ROE Sire program recognizes sires for the achievement of progeny in National ROE Shows, Class A ROE Shows and Class B ROE Shows. A sire qualifies as a ROE Sire when progeny have accumulated a minimum total of 400 ROE points. A minimum of 200 points must be class A ROE points. For an outline of the ROE program, contact the AICA Director of Activities.

NEWS NOTES

AICA MEMBERSHIP Obituary

David Ogden Douglas, whose passionate love of the land, agriculture and all things farming related — including the often temperamental machinery it took to run a farm — inspired him to exchange the New York financial and business world for a seat on a John Deere tractor at his beloved Rainbow Farm in West Tisbury, died March 18 in Ocala, Florida. He was 75. David was born July 6, 1940, the youngest son of four born to Grace and James Henderson Douglas 2nd in Lake Forest, Ill. From childhood, David enjoyed summers on Martha’s Vineyard with his family. He attended Middlesex and Harvard University and ultimately made his way back to Martha’s Vineyard. On the Vineyard in 1962, he met his first wife, Jenifer. Together they raised three daughters and a stepson. He began his professional career at the New York Stock Exchange and later ran his own architecture business. Both were exciting adventures, but not his passion. His passion was farming, which he did for several years in Essex, Mass., raising Charolais beef cattle. He conceived a plan to move to Martha’s Vineyard, design his own home, and become a Vineyard farmer. Being David, that’s what he did. He bought and/or leased a total of 90 acres in West Tisbury, carefully developed the property for a beef cattle operation, designed and built new farm buildings, restored worn-out ancillary buildings, and when it was ready, shifted his Essex farm to the hilly Vineyard property he called Rainbow Farm David was a smart farmer and a clever businessman. He raised cattle to serve as breeding stock to other farmers, carefully matching bulls and cows to get the best offspring. He served as president of the AmericanInternational Charolais Association during his 35 years raising cattle He also raised hay for sale to Island horse owners, feed corn for his cattle, and sweet corn for sale to summer residents. And he worked at

it, mowing and baling the hay, and helping to get it into the big barns he built. When a farm became available in Chilmark near the West Tisbury town line, he sold the West Tisbury Rainbow Farm property and shifted Rainbow Farm (now under new owners and known as Grey Barn Farm) and his growing farming operations from West Tisbury to Chilmark. The house he had built for himself on the south road when he moved to the Vineyard was located on South Road, just on the West Tisbury side of the Chilmark-West Tisbury boundary, making it a perfect fit for his new operation. David was passionate about West Tisbury and its rural beauty. He realized that to keep the town he loved from losing that important quality he had to commit to it, so David ran for election to the West Tisbury planning board and served on the board for 30 years, from 1981 until 2011, when he moved to Chilmark. In 1989, David married Laura Campbell. When they dispersed the cow herd in the fall of 1994, he realized he still loved the land, so David and Laura created a wonderful country store for animal feed and fine boots, to name a few of the products stocked at Campbell & Douglas Harness & Feed. He helped many an Islander load feed or hay onto their trucks there. And this time of year, the early spring, he got on a tractor towing the plows, turning the soil for planting. And he would come into the house at the end of the day, cold and smiling. David is survived by his wife Laura Campbell; daughter Jenifer and partner Jack Wildauer; daughter Alexandra Welch and his grandson Brendan Welch; daughter Diana DeBlase, her husband Glenn, and granddaughter Gabriella; his first wife Jenifer Douglas and stepson David Breasted; brothers John and his children Leaf and Maya and partner Bobbie, James Douglas, Capt. Robert S. Douglas and his wife Charlene and their four sons: Rob and his wife Jackie; Jamie and his wife Marianne and children, Grace and James; Morgan and his wife Griffin and their child Alexander; and Brook. A celebration of life and memorial in honor of David Douglas will be held when the corn is up to our ankles, at a time, place, and date to be announced.
