VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Science and Technology Make the Most Difficult, Simple

What works best for you?

T

hroughout modern history of the seedstock business, breeders and breeds have, on occasion, lost their way—producing cattle that under performed or simply didn’t fit the supply chain nor the consumer’s expectations. Selection tools were nonexistent or unscientific. There was no bovine genomic map. Seedstock production was almost never connected to cattle feeding or processing. Therefore, carcass information did not flow down to the registered producer. In fact, a cow-calf producer that retained ownership was rare and the prevailing wisdom was that quality was largely determined by the cattle feeder’s ability to “feed on the pounds”. Quality was subjective and a moving target. There seemed to be a mystique to beef production beyond seedstock. No one really knew how other production sectors discovered value and producers were convinced the cattle feeder and packer all wore black

the tools were available, cattle feeders and packers recognized the importance of Charolais influence in the beef supply chain. With the available tools today, the responsibility to add value through genetic selection has shifted to registered seedstock producers. Today, we have the tools and the technology to meet the needs of our customers with precision. We simply need to make sure we’re asking the right questions. A few months ago, in a formal setting, we invited multiple industry stakeholders to share their experiences, current use and future preferences, relative to Charolais genetics, with Charolais producers. Our takeaway from the Listening & Learning sessions have exceeded any expectations. The information shared during the L&L sessions has been well documented and will prove to be invaluable as registered Charolais producers and the association look to the future.

We have selection tools to produce cattle to fit any environment or any farm to fork production scheme if we ask the right questions and are committed to producing what the industry demands. hats! Fast forward to the present and the beef production landscape is not just different, it’s amazing. Complicated science and advancing technology have delivered genetic selection tools to registered seedstock and commercial cow-calf producers on a silver platter. Cattle feeders seek progressive producers to partner in ownership scenarios based on known, predictable quality. Risk management is no longer an exercise based on buying cheap, “green” calves and hedging the survivors. A value-based marketing system makes it possible for cattle feeders and producers to select a grid formula most advantageous to the animal’s genetic makeup and feedlot performance. Information flows up and down the supply chain. What once was complicated, subjective and unscientific is now relatively simple. Today, the most important question to ask is what do our customers want? Even though seedstock production is the beginning of the supply chain, the decisions made by registered producers largely determine, or limit, the opportunity to add value up the production system. Our customers can tell us exactly what works for them in their environment. Charolais seedstock suppliers have the tools to produce what works and have done a remarkable job. Even before

A few tools in the AICA tool box include the Terminal Sire Index. TSI uses a producer’s economic and management scenarios and current EPDs on Charolais bulls to identify the most profitable sires based on the input parameters. In 2015, AICA implemented genomically enhanced EPDs for Charolais cattle. The Spring 2018 National Cattle Evaluation was the first by our breed to incorporate single-step methodology. Single-step combines pedigree information, DNA and phenotypic data into a more accurate and reliable decision-making tool. Commercial cow-calf producers, cattle feeders and packers all recognize the importance of Charolais to the beef supply chain. We have selection tools to produce cattle to fit any environment or any farm to fork production scheme if we ask the right questions and are committed to producing what the industry demands. Beef production no longer exists in segregation. The information is available to make informed decisions based on specific value equations in every production sector. Science and technology have changed food animal production from a subjective, abstract process to a simple task of asking our customers a simple question: What works best for you?

Harry, Kay, Troy & VeaBea Thomas, Betty & Hime Bourk, Cally & Clint Kindred

2018 Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo Stockman of the Year:

Troy & VeaBea Thomas

By: Amanda Radke

T

he Black Hills Stock Show Stockman of the Year award recognizes the cattlemen and women who have excelled in the agricultural industry. This year's recipients, Troy and VeaBea Thomas of Harrold, South Dakota, have certainly made their mark, building a highly recognized brand for quality cattle and prime rodeo horses. Thomas Ranch was started in 1931 by Alvin and Gebe Thomas with the purchase of 320 acres of land near Medicine Creek in central South Dakota. The second generation, Harry and Kay Thomas, started farming alongside Harry's parents, and thirty years later, Troy and VeaBea partnered into the business. Today, the Thomas family has welcomed the fourth generation to the ranch, daughter Cally and her husband Clint Kindred. Together, Harry, Kay, Troy, VeaBea, Cally and Clint run 830 mama cows and sell nearly 400 bulls on their annual sale held at the ranch. Additionally, Thomas Ranch raises and sells quarter horses, and Cally competes on the national rodeo circuit where she promotes the family's breeding program. They also host 300-400 hunters each year, complete with guided pheasant hunting trips and home-cooked meals by Kay. With many irons in the fire, the Thomas family has always kept their focus on raising high-quality seedstock. Thomas

Ranch has become a fixture at BHSS; they have exhibited stock nearly every year since the start of the event, including cattle, Quarter Horses and even embryos at the Gold Rush Embryo Sale. "Harry remembers exhibiting cattle at BHSS when it first started, and showing out at the fair grounds," said VeaBea. "We have shown at BHSS every year since the beginning, with the exception of two years when Cally was in college. We like exhibiting at BHSS because it gives us a chance to visit with past and prospective customers. It's a social event for ranchers before spring calving begins." Over the years, Thomas Ranch has had a successful run at BHSS, and they've earned a spot in the Supreme Row every year that they've exhibited cattle. Additionally, they've won Supreme Championship honors seven times. This year, Thomas Ranch plans to take 10 head to BHSS, including an Angus bull and heifer, two Charolais bulls and a Charolais heifer, a Hereford bull, two Red Angus bulls and a Red Angus heifer and one SimAngus bull. "We are extremely humbled and honored to receive this prestigious award," said VeaBea. "We couldn't be more humbled to be honored with this award the year after Bob Mills did.

Benefits of Working with your Veterinarian on Herd Health By Heather Smith Thomas

I

t is always beneficial for producers to have a good working relationship with their veterinarian, who can assist in herd health management strategies and preventative medicine, rather than just dealing with emergencies. Your veterinarian can answer questions and help prevent problems. Yet many cattlemen still tend to have a narrow perspective of what their veterinarian can offer, and only call the veterinarian to treat problems. Dean Lusk, a veterinarian in Jerome, Idaho who has an extensive cattle practice, says consultations can often save a producer time and money by improving herd health and allowing the veterinarian to be part of the process in problemsolving. “In our practice we have seen many different problems and have helped producers resolve them. A few years ago one client’s herd had calves with rickets. The cattle were on desert range in Nevada and that year it was extremely dry; the cattle were on dry grass all summer. The calves that came off that range and went into a feedlot were lighter than normal, and when they hit that good feed and started gaining weight swiftly, they started breaking bones,” Lusk says. “I was looking at a pen of calves that had 20 broken femurs. The rancher didn’t know what was going on. I checked those animals and they had a vitamin D deficiency. Every time they worked those calves they’d have fractures because their bones were so fragile; without enough vitamin D the calcium and phosphorus were not being put down correctly as they grew.” Then when those calves started growing quickly, adding more weight to a fragile skeletal frame, their bones didn’t have enough structural strength. “Even just bucking and running would snap those big bones. After we figured out the problem we gave all those calves an injection of vitamin D. Within 2 weeks they started improving bone strength and within 6 weeks there was a dramatic change in their bones and they didn’t break any more legs,” says Lusk. “Just knowing the physiology and pathophysiology behind rickets and the vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus interactions allowed us to make changes in management for that rancher. On dry years, when we preg those cows, we now give them an injection of vitamin D, and when they calve in the spring we give the calves vitamin D.”

This resolved the problem for that producer and he became proactive to avoid this again in dry years. “Whenever there’s a risk, he can address this ahead of time so it doesn’t happen. If he hadn’t had a way to find out what he was dealing with or how to resolve it, or how to get the resources to help with it, this could have been a problem that repeated year after year. Working with a veterinarian can make a big difference on the outcome,” Lusk says. David Van Metre, Associate Professor and Extension Veterinarian at Colorado State University, says many cattle diseases are more successfully prevented than treated. “If a serious health problem develops in a herd, something has already gone wrong. Most veterinarians can serve as an important resource for helping clients figure out why certain diseases show up, and how management and environment can be changed to help prevent disease. Other ways veterinarians can be utilized in cow-calf operations include herd health programs like vaccination, deworming strategies, and to help design treatment protocols to ensure that appropriate medications are used for specific problems,” says Van Meter. John Hall, PhD, Extension Beef Specialist, University of Idaho, tells ranchers there are several advantages in having their veterinarian as a consultant. “This gives the veterinarian a chance to help the producer look over the entire operation in terms of herd health. Together they can find weak areas, and identify places for improvement. The veterinarian may suggest changes, and perhaps help the producer get connected with other professionals—a nutritionist, extension agent, or someone from the NRCS if there’s a water problem, or fencing and water issues,” says Hall. Every operation is different and there may be unique factors that should be addressed. It also helps if the rancher and veterinarian can work with a nutritionist regarding the overall health program. Nutrition affects everything else— such as fertility and the immune system. Hall advises ranchers to sit down with their veterinarian once or twice a year and discuss any problems experienced that year, or to ask questions about new vaccines (to know which ones they should be using). “There’s not much difference in most vaccines, but cattlemen need to make sure they are using a vaccine that matches their management, production or health maintenance program.”

Directors By Area

H

ello! My name is Mitchell Duer. I am currently serving as the Area 3 Junior Board Director. I was raised in Onaga, Kansas on my parents’ commercial cow/calf operation. Growing up I was involved in everything from sports to FFA. I was in 4-H and showed cattle my whole life. It wasn’t until 2012 that I started showing Charolais. The Sheppard family was kind enough to take me along to my first Junior National in Grand Island, Nebraska. I knew from that week that the junior association and breed association was something that I wanted to be apart of the rest of my life. The cattle are great, and the people are even better! I can’t thank the Sheppard and Fink families enough for helping me get involved in this outstanding breed.

I am currently a junior at Kansas State University where I am majoring in agriculture economics with a specialty in finance and a minor in animal science. At K-State, I am a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity, Agriculture Economics Club, Block and Bridle Club and Collegiate Cattlemen’s Club. I am also a student employee at the Purebred Barn at KSU. I am really excited for this year’s Charolais Junior National in Iowa and I hope to see everyone there!

Q: What is your favorite thing about spring? A: My favorite thing about spring is calving and burning

pastures. Ever since I can remember I have always looked forward to seeing the baby calves running around and to burning pastures with my father.

Q: What are your future plans? A: This summer I am interning at Paragon Ag Advising as

a risk management intern. After graduation, I hope to find myself in the agriculture risk management area and plan to keep raising Charolais on the side.

Q: What made you want to be apart of the AIJCA Junior Board?

A: I wanted to be a part of the Junior Board because of what the board members mean to the youth in our association. I wanted to be able to help the kids and be someone the younger members could look up to. Q:

What is something most people don’t know about you?

What do you look forward to most about A: Most people don’t know that I am a Type 1 Diabetic. I this year’s Junior National Show and Leadership was diagnosed in April of 2013. Conference? Q: What is your most embarrassing show ring A: This is my last Junior National, so I am looking forward moment? to everything. I’m excited to see all the kids and to have an A: I haven’t had a very embarrassing moment in the show awesome week! ring but I still have a few shows left!

Q:

Q: What is your favorite activity at the Junior Q: Who is your biggest role model? National? A: My favorite activity is the Talent and Skit Contest. It’s A: My biggest role model is my father. He built our ranch

from nothing and was always there for me and my sister great to see the other talents that people have outside of the growing up. ring. It’s always an awesome show!

Q: If someone asked you to describe the Junior Charolais Association, what would you say?

A: I would say we are a close knit family that has a great passion for the Charolais breed. 32  

Lee & Connie Eaton have been involved in breed activities nation

and worldwide for many years. Lee served as the AICA President 2007-20-8 and World Charolais Federation President 2009-2010. Connie has been active with the Charolais Dees. A brief history on the Eaton Family… Over 2,000 purebred Charolais females along with 2,500+ commercial females call home to Lindsay, Montana. Eaton Charolais has experienced proven success with a quality breeding program and a strong repeat customer base. In 1909, Charles Eaton and his oldest sons left their farm in Iowa to create a new homestead on the eastern Montana prairie near Lindsay. His grandson Cecil, along with his wife Esther, purchased the original 320 acres in 1942 where they raised five sons and five daughters. The original plot of land is still utilized today serving as the ranch headquarters. In 1965, the Charolais breed intrigued Eatons with their growth, feed efficiency and their hybrid vigor potential. The Eatons have remained in the Charolais business since the first initial purchase in 1965 and now include cattle and feedlot operations in both Montana and North Dakota. The ranch is four generations strong and is currently operated by eleven Eaton families. In the early 1970’s, the Eaton family purchased additional seedstock from pioneer Charolais breeder, Buddy Cobb of Montana, because they liked his linebred philosophy of creating uniformity by stacking pedigrees. Eatons set out to develop their own linebreeding program based on sound, functional females with good udders, and cattle that had a moderate size with thickness. Perhaps they have a unique operation due to the fact that it had a long history of a closed breeding program (cow herd) concentrated on top-producing genetics in a linebred package. By stacking proven lines, predictability is enhanced through genotype. Only in recent years has outside genetics been introduced to the herd. With the cow numbers they have, Eatons have some advantages

other breeders don’t when collecting performance data. The numbers in their contemporary groups adds validity to the EPD and performance data. Eatons have confidence in performance data and EPDs today due to the fact they have a large data set that enables them to see the actual cattle performance differences first hand. Carcass evaluation was not an issue in the early days of the beef business, but as bull customers became more educated, it has become a tool distinguishing one outfit from the next. Even before it became the trendy thing to do, the principals at Eaton Charolais felt carcass information was important to help breed better Charolais cattle. By purchasing back a large volume of calves sired by their bulls, Eatons are able to collect data on the highly sought after Charolais-cross calves and are reassured they are producing a superior genetic product. They are considered to be a pioneer in carcass data collection, adopting the name Carcass Cattle Company. Eaton Charolais cattle have excelled in both purebred and commercial pastures, but they have also proven themselves to be very profitable on the rail. The Eaton operation has enjoyed success feeding cattle since the inception of the Charolais breed into the program. The Eatons feed large numbers of their own calves and customer’s calves at Dinklage Feedyards in Nebraska, a progressive feeding company that Eatons are part owners of. Eaton Charolais sell their bulls and females private treaty, and 90 percent are sold sight unseen. The strong customer relationships from all over the country has allowed the Eatons to sell bulls and females that fit their customers’ needs. They led the nation in Charolais bull registrations for 2016. In 2004, Eaton Charolais was recognized by the American-International Charolais Association as the Seedstock Producer of the Year. BEEF Magazine recognized the operations as a Top 100 Seedstock Producer in 2017. The Eaton family for over 50 years has shown a firm belief in the Charolais breed and strived to make it better.

Ever since then Charolais has been a part of the Effling’s operation. Most years timing and location and our associations have to realize that no one single breed help determine which breeds shows they attend, but this year they does everything, so we’ve got to appreciate how different breeds compliment each other and work together for the best interest of plan to make it to all three Junior National Shows. It is clear when talking to Chris he enjoys the day-to-day operations the industry,” Effling explained. “We have to pay attention more to more than chasing individual achievements. He gives Kristi a lot of consumer education. Ultimately that is the end goal for everybody.” Reflecting on being recognized as the Herdsman of the Year, credit because she fills in everywhere and does so much to keep the Effling has a lot to be thankful for and even more to look forward to operation moving in a positive direction. “She does everything, calving cows, bookwork, other jobs in in the future. “My favorite experience as a producer is being able to gather with town,” Effling said. “Everyone in the family has a role and they all do our friends at functions in the industry,” Effling said. “People are the it really well.

continued from page 25 By having the veterinarian as a consultant, a cattle producer can stay ahead of the game if there’s a change in vaccines or dewormers. “The veterinarian could talk about the most cost-effective and rational strategy for treating certain diseases, including the common things like retained placenta, mastitis, or foot rot,” says Van Metre. The producer may manage cattle in a certain way each year with no problems until something changes. “Maybe it was weather, maybe it’s more heifers calving, maybe more cattle congregating in a late winter situation, and suddenly the rancher is faced with a calf scours outbreak they’ve never seen before,” he says. Herd health management must be a strategic plan, reevaluated every year. It’s a moving target. If you can talk with your veterinarian to find out about new things that might be available and what might be useful in your own operation, you may also be able to save money—not buying something you don’t need, or of questionable value. If your neighbor is using a certain product and has good luck with it, this doesn’t always mean that you will. Or the neighbor may have tried something that didn’t work so you decide to not use that product. Your veterinarian can often answer questions and help you see a broader picture; the situation on your ranch may be different. For instance, there are more than 400 licensed vaccine products and it can be challenging to know what to choose. They all work, but some may target different approaches. You can discuss this with your veterinarian, and look at your herd history and management—and vaccination timing. Are you vaccinating at the best time, or simply doing it while branding, castrating and dehorning? You can also discuss a bio-security program, looking at your sources for new cattle, and the importance of keeping purchased animals separate from the main herd until you know they are free of disease. Do your cattle run on pastures with or have fenceline contact with other ranchers’ cattle? Even if you are doing everything you can to ensure good herd health and someone in the grazing association (or your neighbor whose cattle have fenceline contact with yours) is doing minimum, it may cost you money for extra vaccinations, but save a lot more money in the long run. It is to understand some of the diseases that could possibly be brought into your herd, and know the risks. A little money spent on consultation with your veterinarian might prevent a big wreck on down the road. Dr. Mark Bramwell, at South Fork Veterinary Clinic in Rigby, Idaho says a good relationship with your veterinarian can help you be more successful. “At producer meetings we provide information on ways ranchers can improve their management and be more successful in aspects that will be helpful in their business. We talk about minerals and the huge health benefits for cattle that are not mineral-deficient. In our region we have severe mineral deficiencies, particularly copper and selenium,” he says. “Sometimes we’ll call our clients and say, ‘Hey, we’d like to sit down with you and discuss your herd health, and talk about which vaccines might work best for you this year.’ We like to discuss how they can be successful,” he says. 64  

M A R C H 2018

“It all comes down to trust. We also try to keep prices on our medications competitive, so ranchers will come in to buy vaccine or antibiotics, and if we are available sometimes they ask to talk to a veterinarian and we can chat with them.” This opens the door to some consultation and the veterinarian can do more than just sell the vaccines/medications. Hall says the veterinarian has to make a living, just like everyone else. “One way to do that is to charge a high fee every time the rancher has an emergency. The other way is by helping the rancher increase profit margin by charging a fee for expertise in certain areas—and possibly prevent those catastrophes. If the rancher can save 3 more calves, or get 3 more cows bred, he/ she can afford that consultation. Putting the veterinarian into a partnership role can pay off for the producer,” he says. It’s harder to become educated about health issues when your only opportunity to talk with a veterinarian is during an emergency. It’s hard for a veterinarian to concentrate on anything else, other than dealing with that particular emergency. The producer wants to know how to prevent this happening to the next cow or calf. “During times of year when things are a little slow for both of you, you could get together and look over things,” says Hall. Then you can look at what kinds of problems you had last year, and what things you might do differently. How many calves were born this year, and how many did you actually wean this year (from the number of cows bred last year). How strung out was calving season? What do the calves look like? What do the cows look like (body condition)? The vet is probably more objective, looking at body condition, to help a client evaluate the herd. A growing number of veterinarians are helping clients with records and record-keeping systems. All of this adds up to a chance to fine-tune the health management of the operation, resulting in less losses and more profit for the rancher. Van Metre stresses the need for veterinarians to explain and demonstrate health care procedures and diagnostics (even basic necropsies). “The vast majority of ranchers want to do a good job; they want to raise healthy animals and are willing to learn. Our side of the obligation is to have the capacity to teach. The opportunity to teach is a two-way street; the rancher must be willing to learn, and the veterinarian must be willing to listen and learn as well. For example, some of the best tips on helping heifers with dystocia I learned from a rancher,” he says. Most ranchers work with their veterinarians on common task-based things such as pregnancy diagnosis, but there is much to be gained by also working together on sound, scientifically valid disease prevention strategies. THE VETERINARIAN IS ANOTHER SET OF EYES “If clients trust us, they’ll have us out to do their Bangs vaccinations and preg-checking, and then we may also be able to do some liver biopsies to check selenium and copper status,” says Bramwell. “If the rancher has an outbreak of disease he/ she is more likely to call us to try to figure it out and maybe do some necropsy work and diagnostics.” If the veterinarian is there preg-checking, this is an extra set of eyes to assess herd health issues—to suspect a copper deficiency or some other situation the client needs to be aware

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


of. The veterinarian can also check teeth, eyes, body condition scores, etc. and suggest things that might help the producer not only deal with situations at hand, but can also give input that might help in future management decisions. Hall tells ranchers it’s good to get someone else to look at their cattle. “When you are looking at your own operation every day, you become accustomed to how things look and might not notice something an impartial observer might see. If the vet is out there periodically and familiar with the farm or ranch, he/she may be able to see changes more readily,” says Hall. “When we only get to see sick animals, all we see is what has gone wrong,” says Van Metre. “Seeing a sick calf in the clinic, we can tell what’s wrong with it and which pathogens are making it sick, but we can’t always tell the producer why it happened until we get out on the place. Seeing individual animals and treating them is one thing, but we need to be out on a regular basis and be more familiar with the management, to be able to help the rancher determine why it happened. Knowing why things happen on a ranch is key to helping prevent future problems,” he explains. “Many ranchers simply look at the check they have to write for pregnancy testing, and avoid calling the veterinarian any other time unless it’s an emergency. But we want them to know that if they see a problem or have a question they could just make a phone call or have the veterinarian out now and then to walk through things and talk about preventative management. There is so much that can gleaned from just having someone looking at things from a different perspective as we walk through a pen and look at the animals.” A set of fresh eyes can be beneficial. “We can look at body condition, hair coat health and color, eyes, etc.” says Lusk. “We can talk about parasites, minerals, water sources and feed. We can help head off scour outbreaks or pneumonia, with advance consultation and advice to producers so they can make some management changes,” he says. Some clients may benefit from learning about proper calf-pulling techniques or how to get a compromised calf breathing, or how to provide colostrum to newborns that are unable to suckle. Some producers are proactive in their efforts to prevent illness in young calves and want to do all they can to minimize risk. They may want to learn better treatment techniques for the ones that do get sick, or how to give IV fluids to a calf. “If they want to learn how to pull calves better, or give IVs, we are happy to help them. Some veterinarians are afraid that if their clients learn how to take care of the animals and do these things it will cut down on their work, but our philosophy is just the opposite. We find that the more we teach clients, the more work we have,” says Lusk. The educated client realizes the benefits of working with a veterinarian and values that relationship. “These clients know they are benefiting knowledge-wise, and that their cattle are healthier and more productive because they are doing a better job with their cows. They will come to us more often for help, advice or to ask a question, rather than waiting until an emergency before they call us. If we have a good relationship,

we may spend time on the phone just talking to clients. They tell us what they are seeing and we may be able to walk them through something or tell them what the problem is and what they should do about it, or we may realize that we need to come out and take a look at the animal ourselves,” he says. “I have several clients that I have enough confidence in that I can tell them over the phone what to do to resolve something, or I can tell them it’s something we are seeing in herds this year, or struggling with on another farm. I can give suggestions for what to try or what to look for and have the rancher call me back and let me know.” When you have that kind of relationship there are some questions the veterinarian can answer over the phone.

VET CAN BE AN INFORMATION FILTER “Making sensible and cost-effective treatment protocols not only helps minimize treatment costs and hopefully maximize treatment success, but also can be important in quality assurance and residue avoidance,” explains Van Metre. “Some stockmen have another business to run. The last data I saw showed that only about one in seven U.S. cowcalf operations have cattle as their primary source of income. There may be crops to manage, or other jobs to do,” he says. Most of the cattle in the U.S. are produced by people with herds of 50 cows or less. “Typically those stockmen have other jobs and raise cattle on the side. It can be hard for a rancher to wade through all the data regarding efficacy of certain vaccines, the proper utilization of vaccine or deworming drugs, the appropriate antibiotics to use for different respiratory conditions in different animals. The primary source of exposure to many products comes from advertising in lay jourals and those won’t always show the data that would give a chance to compare claims to efficacy. This is where veterinarians can offer expertise; we are trained in how to critically evaluate scientific literature and can help clients determine whether or not a particular product has been proven useful in the scenarios they will face,” he explains. The vet can be an information filter to help make sense of it all. He/she has access to scientific publications that can prove or disprove the utility of a certain animal health product in a particular setting. If cattle are scattered in large pastures in a northern climate, the need for parasite control is much different than for intensively pastured cattle in Alabama, for instance. “One of our responsibilities is to stay on top of new product developments, and to ask the important questions that a producer needs answered, in order to make the right decisions about which product to use. Product scrutiny and validation of efficacy claims for different products is part of our job,” says Van Metre.

continued from page 25 There are many deserving folks who could have won this award." Harry Thomas received the Stockman of the Year award in 2002, and being an industry leader must run in the family. "I always remember hearing stories of Harry riding the train to Chicago to learn how to artificially inseminate (AI) cows; he was one of the first two people in South Dakota to learn how to AI," said Chris Effling, a friend of the Thomas family who nominated Troy and VeaBea for the award. "Harry put himself through college at South Dakota State University by AI'ing at a dairy near Brookings. Harry, as well as Troy and VeaBea, have always been very innovative and at the forefront of emerging trends in this industry." In years past, Troy has served as the South Dakota Angus Association president and a six-year director for American International Charolais Association. Meanwhile, VeaBea is currently the president of the South Dakota Beef Breeds Councils and sits on the South Dakota Beef Industry Council. Together, they've won numerous awards and national championships for their ranch practices, cattle genetics and rodeo horses. "I nominated both Troy and VeaBea to win this award because it is truly a team effort at Thomas Ranch," said Effling. "Troy handles much of the day-to-day operations while VeaBea does all of the record-keeping and registrations. They are both very active in the industry. In the past couple of years, Troy has traveled to Russia with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture to promote South Dakota beef cattle, and VeaBea just visited New York to promote beef to urban consumers there as part of the Northeast Beef Promotion Initiative. On or off the ranch, they are leaders in what they do." Effling credits the Thomas family with being huge supporters of BHSS. "It's a family affair for them, and they are always ready and

M A R C H 2018

willing to support BHSS, whether that's exhibiting cattle, buying stock or even competing in rodeos," said Effling. This year, Cally and Clint will both be competing in the 2018 Rodeo Rapid City. Back at home on the ranch, the Thomas family is working together as a family to continue to raise high quality seedstock. In the last 85 years of operation, they have grown corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa, sorghum and sunflowers, with most of the cropland used to raise feed for the cattle. They track the multiple breeds they raise using the Cow Sense CowCalf Program, which allows them to keep close records of the different breeds in one place. "We focus on structural correctness, disposition, performance, fertility and general health," said Troy. "The cattle at Thomas Ranch run in big pastures, therefore the ability to travel back and forth to water and feed in all kinds of weather conditions is a must for their survival. We are continually trying to improve the performance of our calves using all of the tools that are available to satisfy our customer demands." Thomas Ranch will host its 46th Annual Bull Sale on April 10, 2018 at the Thomas Ranch Sale Facility north of Harrold, S.D. "The opportunities that Troy had presented to him as a young man because his parents, Harry and Kay Thomas allowed him to follow his dreams have helped us in this industry," said VeaBea. "The networking and friends and acquaintances through shows all around the United States have helped us build our business to where it is today. The future for young people has as many or more opportunities because of social media, online sales and all the technology available today. Of course, hard work and luck are also helpful. Clint and Cally Kindred will hopefully carry out the work on the ranch going into the future." Story originally published in Tri-State Livestock News.

Members, as well as nonmembers, I am available for all of you who may need my assistance in whatever it may be. So, if you have any questio ns, concerns, and/or ideas feel free to contact me or any of the other CAT members. In closing, I wish all of you the best.

What an opportunity here! We are offering choice of all of the Nancy 6106 daughters in our herd! Nancy 6106 first hit the radar when she was the high-selling female lot and the ‘cover girl’ the day that M6 sold Bells & Whistles. She herself has produced the second high-selling female lot at the Lonestar Ladies Sale and has had multiple high-selling bulls for Skeans Cattle. Both her and her flushmate sister Nancy 6100 have proven to be headline donors! This pick could quickly elevate your program. Choice to be made by 6/1/2018. Breeding status will be announced at the sale. Presented by: Skeans Cattle Company
