HEADQUARTERS

American Maine-Anjou Association (AMAA) Mission Statement The AMAA will promote Maine-Anjou genetics that provide superior, value added performance, docility and carcass excellence for the beef industry, while also providing expanded membership services for adult and junior members. Greetings! I hope that your New Year is off to a good start. Bull sales and shows are in full swing now and I know many of you are keeping busy with spring calving kicking off. I would like to give you an update on some of the recent happenings at the AMAA. We had a strong show and sale at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo. Attendance and support for all the Maine-Anjou events was very good. The top end of the Bright Lights sale was very strong and bidding was competitive. The Hill show featured an impressive set of females and an aged bull show that was admired by many onlookers. The breeders and exhibitors should be commended for displaying Maine-Anjou cattle that were as physically impressive as any. The AMAA Board of Directors also had a very productive meeting at the National Western. Troy Jones was approved by the board to fill the vacated seat for region one. Rick Carlson and I shared our thoughts and plans on how to reposition the breed and gain a larger portion of the commercial bull market. Below I will share some of the tactics that we will be implementing to reinvigorate demand for MaineAnjou genetics. The repositioning of the breed is vital in advancing

MARCH/APRIL 2016

Maine-Anjou. The United States beef industry is dominated by British based breeds that have done a good job of embracing technology and documenting their performance advancements. These breeds have provided a lot of good traits to the US cowherd but they cannot deliver everything! Maine-Anjou is proficient where many of the weaknesses lie with the British influence. Many of you breeders have told me about the tremendous carcass attributes and growth the Maine cattle can provide. I believe you and although we have documented this to a level, today’s commercial cattleman require data in black and white that reflects the positives we can bring to them. We have to turn in every weight on all the calf-crop and get more carcass data into our database to really show what we have to offer. More data is needed to paint a truthful picture about the strong impact that Maine-Anjou genetics can have on red meat yield and feed efficiency. We are currently participating in a project with a dairy to retrieve such data. Dairy?!?! Let me explain, many dairy operations mate their older cattle to beef sires to add value to their calf crop when they freshen their milking females. They will use beef breeds and then feed these cattle out so they don’t have to worry with getting docked at the sale barn and can reap


HEADQUARTERS the true value of these cattle when they are fed out and harvested. Many of these dairy operations have found British breeds do not compliment their calves from a terminal standpoint. We can help them with more muscle, moderate frame, calm dispositions and feed conversion. This project will help us track cattle out of the test sires used and put that information in our database. To go along with this we can break into a market that can utilize thousands of units of semen every week of the year. Dairy cattle in Iowa are currently being bred to Maine-Anjou and MaineAngus bulls for this project. Another tactic to increase the data that we need for our Maine Mission is provided by genomics. Mapping and identifying the genes of Maine-Anjou cattle can be very beneficial. Genetic sequencing speeds up progress by immediately identifying the genetic potential of an individual. We do not have to wait for them to produce or propagate offspring or have their own carcasses on the rail. This can help in identifying the positive traits and also the negative traits that may lead to culling. We can then more quickly produce the desirable beast and be more competitive in the market place. We have started a project that we call the Genesis Project. In this project we are going back to the beginning and looking at the bulls that had the widest genetic influence on today’s MaineAnjou cattle from the quantity of ancestors. Then we are taking these 12-15 Fullblood bulls and deep sequencing or mapping their genetic profile. We believe that we can recognize the good and the bad, but hopefully find production traits that are unique to the Maine-Anjou breed. If we find these “unique variants� this could be our calling card to the industry! Even if these variants are not found, the genetic project will increase the accuracy and predictability of our EPDs.

We have also developed a plan that will increase opportunities and services for every member of the association. The vast majority of our breeders have 25 head herds or smaller and lack the marketing outlets and expertise of our large seedstock operators. One of our focuses will be to provide marketing outlets for bulls, heifers and steers. We have heard many times that these smaller breeders receive discount and often get mis-labeled when they market cattle at sale barns, bull tests, etc. We want to establish avenues where the true value can be realized and industry demanded genetics are what our members are raising. Within this program will be access to top consultants in the health, nutrition and genetics fields to aid every member of the AMAA that may need it. As many of you have experienced we have made the online program switch to Digital Beef. This program was chosen for the many management applications that will benefit you, the producer. Like with any transition there are some glitches to work out and all of us have to make change to the new processes of Digital Beef. With that being said, please be patient with us and do not hesitate to call if our staff can assist you. If there are some things that you find troublesome please e-mail me the specifics and we can address that with the software company. If we can get through this transitional era, I believe that we will be part of a software program that is beneficial for all of the AMAA. As always, please let us know if we can assist you! Best regards, Blake

Is the Future Really a Moving Target? by Marty Ropp, Allied Genetic Resources

Making genetic progress in the beef business is a long term proposition. Remember your 10 year old cows in 2027 will be decided by the sire choices you make this year. With that in mind, predicting the factors that will provide the most value in the future is part of what seedstock producers have to do each and every time they make a mating, because it matters. That can seem like a daunting task and one we certainly spend a lot of time at meetings and one on one prognosticating. Should we make cattle bigger, smaller, thicker, thinner, blue or green? Moving forward there are as many theories as there are independent seedstock producers. Even though there are a score of unknowns, I do think there are a few logical predictions looking to the future that may help guide our way at least in the right general directions. 1. We produce and sell a highly desired and thus a premium value food product for consumers. That product must be constantly improved in order 40 MARCH/APRIL 2016

to maintain that level of value to our ultimate customers. Demands for meat products that are tender, flavorful, juicy, safe and hard to screw up during preparation need to drive a significant portion of our genetic planning. 2. Costs associated with production of beef are not likely to decrease in the future. Technologies for addressing higher production costs are becoming readily available each year. Measuring intake, prediction tools for cow herd maintenance costs, genetic evaluation for cow longevity, and DNA evaluations for traits like disease resistance are all technologies that are poised to help producers make advancement in relative cost reduction. 3. Quality, dependable labor is probably not going to be easier nor cheaper to access and the average age of the commercial cattle producer in this county is not going down very fast. The amount of labor equipped and willing to pull calves, milk out poor uddered cows and manage cattle with dangerous dispositions


is not as abundant as it once was. Genetic selection can absolutely help us reduce the amount of labor necessary for our commercial customers. 4. The quantity and accessibility of information available to everyone down chain all the way to consumers is apt to increase. More folks in the future are going to know more about the value of the genetics you produce and sell than ever before. Data on the value of your customer’s calves could potentially get all the way to consumers, this will be a significant contributor to the value of your brand both as an individual producer and as a breed. 5. Systems of production and marketing will be a greater part of our future in the beef business. It seems logical that targeted genetics designed to suit specific purposes, markets and products and thus have greater value in those systems than they do in a strictly commodity industry will become more common. One size truly does not fit all, but within a targeted system more uniformity should be worth

millions. 6. The value and profit in heterosis to commercial cattle producers will not go away. $100 to $200 per commercial cow per year is simply impossible to ignore. Anyone who would discourage commercial customers from using planned crossbreeding technology is absolutely hurting them financially. With that in mind, a sustainable plan to provide an easy to use and profitable level of heterosis to customers should be an important part of all genetic programs moving forward. In the short term, bull sales will probably still be dominated by high weaning weights and selling the biggest bulls first, but those who are really committed to the genetics business for the long haul should be considering decisions that help insure their viability out into the future. I certainly may not be right about all of the factors listed above, but I think they make more sense than arguing about whether cattle need to be blue or green. MARCH/APRIL 2016 41


announcements online registering

In order to register online you must have a member number and password. If you have forgotten your login information or need access to Digital Beef, please contact AMAA staff via e-mail or by phone. Registrations are completed and mailed in the order they are received. If you wish to place a rush on your registration work you must contact the AMAA to request a rush or FedEx.

Helpful tips when registering

To avoid delays in your registration work during our busy season, please follow the tips below: Double check that all blanks and information are correct and complete before mailing or submitting online. Things most commonly missed are: o Missing herd prefix and herd ID o Birthdates o Date of sale o Name of animal o Payment Make sure the person that is registering owns the dam with exception of ET calves. If ET, make sure the donor dam has been DNA, PHA & TH typed and that we have the results on file. If you are checking on work please e-mail us at maine@kc.rr.com. When calling or e-mailing please have the name and breeder number of the person submitting the work. When registering annual active dams for performance only animals please submit them online if you have the capabilities. This will help the registrar processing tremendously. Rush work is processed ahead of regular work that is received in our office and mailed by regular mail so please do not procrastinate to avoid extra charges and to assure buyers that they are purchasing from a reputable business person. As always, we appreciate you and your business and want to make sure that the registration process runs as smooth as possible. Thank you in advance for your extra time in making sure all work is correct, complete and received in a timely manner.

Registrations for upcoming shows

It is now time to register show animals for winter and spring shows. Please keep in mind during the winter show season you will need to allow at least two to three weeks for turn-around on registrations and transfers sent in to our office. If a paper is needed within that time, a rush fee ($50 per eight head) will be required before the work will be completed. 42 MARCH/APRIL 2016

Rushes will be done in the order received; a rush fee is currently $50 (covers eight head). If rush work is faxed, it will be considered a rush unless otherwise specified. It is the breeder’s responsibility to give us a follow-up phone call to make sure the work is legible and to cover all fees. It is not our office staff ’s responsibility to call breeders that fax in registration work. No work will be released until payment is complete. Rush work is processed ahead of the regular work that is received in our office and mailed by regular mail within one to two business days. We will do our best to complete rush work that is received in our office by 2 p.m. (Monday – Friday). There is no sameday turnaround. If requiring a registration number only, it will still be considered a rush as we still have to process the work to obtain the number. If you need to have registrations sent out by overnight delivery, there is an additional fee (in addition to the rush fee) for sending overnight. We normally use Federal Express (Fed Ex) and the charges are based on Fed Ex fees at that given time. Again, let us emphasize, it is your responsibility to contact our office to make arrangements for overnight delivery so that we have the correct shipping address and payment before sending. Fed Ex WILL NOT deliver to a post office box. A rush will be picked up by Fed Ex the next business day for delivery the following day. For big weekend events, such as state expos, we reserve the right to require work to be in our office no later than 2 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to that weekend’s show. Please plan ahead. If a paper is needed within two weeks, a rush will be required at this time of year.

QUESTIONS ON REGISTERING

Please read through the information found on our homepage at maine-anjou.org under “Member Information.”

REGISTRATION NUMBERS

Once an animal is registered, it is backed up that same night to our Web site, maine-anjou.org. It can be viewed by clicking on “Search the Maine-Anjou Breed” or by logging into your account.

dna, th and pha requirements

Prior to registering any ET calves, all donor dams (including commercial or non-registered dams) must have DNA, TH and PHA on file in our office. Also, all AI sires are required to have the same on file. Therefore, our office will hold any ET registrations submitted out of dams without testing on file as well as all registrations out of AI sires that do not have complete testing on file. If the donor dam is deceased and not tested, we do require that the ET(s) have the tests done, in the absence of the donor’s records. The DNA, TH and PHA testing can be done at GeneSeek. A submission form is found on our Web site, maine-anjou.org. Maine-Anjou samples are put into testing at GeneSeek on Wednesdays, please plan accordingly when submitting. DNA results will be back in the AMAA office late the next week after the testing begins; TH and PHA results will be in our office two weeks later, usually on a Thursday. We would like to start sending the test results by e-mail only, please make sure we have an up-to-date e-mail address for you, if applicable.

new self billing worksheet

Please dispose of any old self-billing worksheets and registration forms you may have to avoid work being held for price differences.

new members

All new members must choose a program when submitting a new membership. The two programs that are offered are MAPP and Breeders Choice. You may read about these two programs by visiting maineanjou.org and clicking on “Member Information” and then choose the “MAPP or Breeders Choice” option. If a membership is submitted without choosing a program, the new member will be placed in the Breeders Choice program. MARCH/APRIL 2016 43


announcements Foundation animals

Non-registered bulls and females must be entered as a foundation animal prior to MaineTainer progeny being registered. All current “P” (performance only) cattle will be grand-fathered into the program. If the sire is an AI sire and registered at another breed association, the pedigree and testing must be on file with the AMAA. The charge to add a sire pedigree will be a one-time charge of $40. If the AMAA finds that the pedigree has already been paid for by another breeder, the $40 charge will not be applied. Dams registered at another breed association may also be added for a one-time charge of $25. See the new selfbilling sheet for foundation fees.

bull calf registration

If registering a bull calf born after Jan. 1, 2014, it must be TH/PHA free by parentage or have testing completed prior to registering and on file with the AMAA. Carriers will no longer be registered, but may be entered as a foundation animal. If registrations are submitted before testing has been completed, the animal will not be registered. Instead, the animal will be given a performance number at a non-refundable penalty charge of $10. Once the animal has been tested the registration may be completed at the regular rate. Please plan accordingly as testing can take up to three weeks.

ONLINE transfers

Registered animals with certificates are now able to be transferred online but must be completed by the current owner by logging into his/her online account to complete the transfer. If the buyer is responsible for the transfer fees, the seller must indicate this in the comment line, otherwise the seller will be charged the transfer fees. Remember, anytime you transfer an animal your dues must be paid unless the animal being transferred is the last animal in your inventory. You will be able to see your current inventory when logging in to your account online.

online registration discounts

A 10 percent discount on registration fees will be given to all active members registering online (discount does not apply to annual dues, new memberships, MAPP fees or foundation animals). If you have not created an online account, you may do so by visiting maine-anjou.org, select the green tab that says “Login”, select “Create Account”, enter your current breeder number, enter your e-mail address, verify your e-mail address and enter a password of

MARCH/APRIL 2016

your choice. You will then be automatically logged in to your account. You may view your current inventory, cancelled animals you no longer have, register and transfer animals and enroll your MAPP online if you are a current MAPP member.

Purchase registration blocks

You may purchase registration blocks of 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100 at a discounted rate. These blocks are prepaid registrations and may only be used for animals under 13 months of age. Any unused blocks expire December 31 of each year. See the new selfbilling worksheet for pricing. Multiple discounts will not be allowed. If you register online, the block discount (the greater discount) will be applied at checkout.

2016 MAPP

MAPP inventories are now due. Directions are posted on our website on how to enroll your current inventory. If you would prefer to have your inventory mailed, please contact Donna Grame at (816) 4319950. MAPP members must have their 2016 fees paid to register for the 2016 year.

by Kaylee Miller

Hello everyone! I am Kaylee Miller from Lacona, Iowa. This past summer I was elected as one of the Region II Directors. I would first like to congratulate all the exhibitors at the NWSS and FWSS on your accomplishments. Now that we have wrapped up another show season it’s time to start focusing on our new projects in the barn and preparing for the next show. We are also getting closer to spring which means junior national will be here before we know it. I encourage all juniors to go experience the junior national as it is a lot of fun and you get to meet a lot of new people. I went to my first junior nationals in 2008 in Kansas City, Mo., and haven’t missed one since. The experiences and life skills you gain are ones you will use the rest of your life. At the end of March we will be having an online sale. I would like to thank all of those who have donated items for this fundraiser. I encourage everyone to check out our online sale as we will have something for everyone! The funds raised through this sale will go towards this year’s junior national. This year they will be held June 17-24 in Grand Island, Neb. I have really enjoyed my time on the board so far and am glad to be a part of such a great breed organization. I want to wish all the juniors good luck with their projects at the upcoming shows and hope to see many of you in Grand Island! Best of Luck! MARCH/APRIL 2016 45
