VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS It is what we do.

Recognize the contributions of the breed a lot of talk these days about sustainability. It seems the Tandhere’s talk is mostly from folks wanting to gain a competitive edge recognize sustainability resonates with the consumer. So, the more claim to having a sustainable product, the easier it is to sell to a consumer regardless of fact versus fiction. The importance and relevance of sustainability is inarguable. Period. However, the devil is in the details. Webster defines sustainability as the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level and the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance: the pursuit of global environmental sustainability | the ecological sustainability of the planet. When we apply the true definition of sustainability to food production and, more specifically, the beef industry, it seems so simple yet so difficult. If an operation is profitable, it should fit the definition for sustainability, right? But what if an operation

liquidating or reducing cowherd numbers was the only remaining option to preserve the most valuable natural resource necessary to continue in business—grasslands. We learned through the painful drought, cow herd liquidation, return to normal rainfall, pasture recovery and total beef production, that beef output suffered slightly, but not near the level predicted. We learned that best practice beef production systems worked remarkably well. Modern industry focus on genomics, cow herd efficiency, improving red meat yield and land preservation proved that sustainability is possible, regardless of the unforeseen and uncontrollable obstacles. Whether we knew it at the time, diligent seedstock suppliers and progressive commercial cow-calf producers had, by default, moved their operations toward true sustainability by embracing science and technology.

Charolais seedstock suppliers, commercial cow-calf producers, cattle feeders and the packer know beyond a doubt, Charolais genetics are relevant in the discussion about affordably producing more quality pounds while reducing the pressure on natural resources. is profitable, but offers little profitability for the next segment up the food chain? We can pose a hundred questions to defend our production practices, but progressive producers recognize the absolute necessity of sustainable beef production. If an operation has been in existence for a couple of decades, they’ve likely seen at least two cattle cycles requiring serious adjustments to production. It’s also likely adjustments were dictated by too much rain or too little rain. In fact, a few short years ago, the entire beef production system was dramatically affected by long term drought. We were concerned about survival for producers as well as cow herds. That multi-year adjustment saw the greatest cow herd liquidation in generations and predictions indicated the nation’s total beef output was in jeopardy in the near future. The cow herd reduction was necessary for the sheer survival of many family owned ranching operations throughout the mid- and southwestern United States. Pastures were nothing but scorched earth. Water resources were gone. The sustainability discussion took a back seat to the reality of survival. Then the rains came. Analysts’ predictions that it would take years for native grasslands decimated by drought to recover proved to be inaccurate. Why? Because beef producers, true stewards of the land, knew that

Striving towards true sustainability should not be a political football, nor should pressure to become more sustainable be a “top down” issue. A sustainable food supply is inevitable or our planet will experience long term, catastrophic consequences. But it is an incredibly complex issue. Sustainability should not be a superficial marketing sound bite used to compare and insinuate a value difference. Everyone involved in meat animal protein production has a role to play. Many of the nation’s largest companies and global food suppliers are recognizing they can’t simply mandate a solution. Working towards a solution requires that all sectors have a seat at the table, and it must be a round table, not a table with a single potentate. Charolais seedstock suppliers, commercial cow-calf producers, cattle feeders and the packer know beyond a doubt, Charolais genetics are relevant in the discussion about affordably producing more quality pounds while reducing the pressure on natural resources. Maybe we’re too hard at work to stop and recognize the contributions this breed has made and will continue to make in the future to finding sustainable solutions to global food production. After all, it’s still winter, spring calving has begun and the daily chores are never ending. It is what we do.

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.

ow, where has the time gone? It is hard to believe that this will be my last Junior National as a junior member and as part of the Junior Board. My time as a junior has been incredible. The things I have learned, the people I have met and the friends I have made have both driven me to be a better person and a better ambassador for our breed. I never thought I would have visited so many states and have friends from all parts of the country when I first started showing cattle. The experience of being a part of such a great organization and even a greater group of people is something I will carry with me all my life. I have cousins coming up in the show world so I know this will not be my last Junior National, but no matter how many more I attend, they will never be the same. Thank you to all the junior members, the officers and our leaders for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful chapter in my life.

Q: How did you become involved in the Charolais breed? A: I was born into the Charolais breed. My grandparents had

started their Charolais herd years before I was born. So there never really was any discussion on what breed we would keep pushing. As I grew and understood more and more, I also felt like the Charolais breed was the right breed for me.

messed up the Chi show. They look like black bowling pins running around with this big white ball running through them. Floyd Wampler was the gate man, and he asked my dad, ‘Aint that Nicks heifer?’ Dad said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘You think you should go get her?’ Dad said ‘Nope.’ He finally did, but I could have crawled out of the ring I was so embarrassed.

Q:

What are some of your traits that help you be a good board member?

A: Being a board member is truly an honor, you have to have a servant’s heart to be able to represent your area and be willing to listen to questions and help others find the answers. You have to have a great family backing you up. When you are at shows, sales or other gatherings, your duties will take you away from your own cattle and all those responsibilities. Somebody still has to make sure the other things are getting done. Most of us know the value of a hard day’s work, and what it takes to get everything done. Board members are some of the first to the barn in the mornings and last to leave at night. But the rewards for all of this is priceless. Q:

What do you think makes the Charolais breed appealing to commercial cattlemen, and how do you see our breed influencing the cattle industry?

Q: How has being involved in the AIJCA impacted you? A: In my opinion, no other breed brings those extra weaning A: I could always stand and talk with people about our breed pounds to most any herd better than Charolais. We have seen

and the advantages of the breed. But the information that is available to our juniors is incredible, the facts and documented results are a huge asset when you are standing in a pasture trying to tell someone the advantages of using a Charolais bull instead of some other breed.

several people use Charolais bulls for the first time and come back and tell us the huge difference in weaning weights they are seeing now. When prices are good or prices are bad it is still about the amount of pounds you send across the scales.

Q: What is your favorite thing about the Charolais breed? Q: What is your favorite thing about spring? A: I love spring each year, and this year it will be even better A: I like the way Charolais can be crossed with just about any than before. Like much of the south, we had a devastating

other breed. Many breeds have a lot of great qualities, but it gets harder to find those outcross breeds to bring into your genetics drought last fall. In our area, we went over 70 days with no and have consistent positive results. Charolais have proven to measurable rainfall. Everything was the same dried dead color. The rains have started back, the ponds and waterways are filling have that ability. back up and I can’t wait to see the different colors of spring to Q: What is your most embarrassing show ring moment? include good green grass.

A: Wow, just one really? I could fill a book of these, but those embarrassing moments in the ring soon become the funny stories in the barn. Years ago, we were in Kansas City. I was showing a new heifer for the first time. Charolais were in the left ring and I think it was Chi in the right ring. My heifer got a way once and with help we gathered her back up. The second time was not as easy. Not only did she completely disrupt the Charolais show, she crossed the white fence and completely 24  

M A R C H 2017

Q: What are some of your future goals? A: I will continue to be active in the Charolais breed. We have

our farm in a good spot and I want to continue to grow. I am working on my Ag Business degree and hope to be able to use that in our family owned insurance and real estate business in the future. I love all things Ag related. I can’t see myself ever getting to far away from the dirt. CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

J

ohn S. Mitchell Jr. dedicated his life to the Charolais breed starting his career in the Bahamas after graduating from the University of Florida. Soon after he went to the Nutmeg herd in Connecticut where he exhibited and bred some of the breed’s foundation animals. Avignon was named Grand Champion Bull at the 1967 American Royal and went on to be one of the breed’s most influential foundation sires. Starwood Avignon 14th (the sire of Riverwood Elevation 44) and the king of cow country, Nutmegs Avignon FR31 were his most influential sons. The Germaine line of females was also born at Nutmeg Farms. He also managed herds in North Carolina and Mississippi before striking out on his own in Ohio during the mid 70s. JSM Elevation 188 one of the founding donors for the Silver Creek herd in Wisconsin, was produced during this venture, prior to one last relocation to Missouri in 1978 to build Wesson Charolais into one of the breed’s top herds. He once again depended on the genetics of Avignon and Camelot to lay the foundation. John and Frank Wesson were truly a force to reckon with when it came to Charolais cattle. The Annual Weekend in the Ozarks was a well attended event because of the quality of the cattle and entertainment. During his fourteen years at Wesson Charolais many championship banners were hung and the prestigious Challenge Trophy was won back to back three times. An eighth interest in ABC Iceman 811 was sold for a record price in Denver when he was named National Grand Champion. This was a difficult time in the

beef industry because a “type change” would come near the end of his tenure. A keen sense of what bulls would impact the breed’s next generation, he had identified WCR Sir Tradition 066 as one of the bulls that would help with the transition, but the announcement of the dispersal never saw that through in Koshkonong, Missouri. Following the dispersal of Wesson Charolais in the fall of 1992, he and his wife Bonnie founded Mitchell Management and he managed sales across the country until his retirement due to health reasons in the fall of 2014. During that time he truly enjoyed influencing new and old breeders alike and built up Mitchell Management to continue to market Charolais cattle today. John started two of the breed’s top consignment sales (The Renaissance and The Autumn in the Ozarks) that are approaching their silver anniversaries. Upon his death in June of 2015, John and Bonnie had been married 54 years. No telling how many Charolais events they attended during those years, but they were a team. They had three children Brush (Connie), John III and Clifford who were all active in the AmericanInternational Junior Charolais Association. He also had a grandson Jacob and granddaughter Stacie. Few things except family were more important to John than the Charolais cattle. He was also a veteran of the United States Marine Corp and became very involved with his local veterans group. He would have been very excited to be the honoree at the 48th National Show. The Nutmeg crew proudly took home the Challenge Trophy at the first three National Shows.

Herdsman of the Year

A

n eye for good cattle and an inherited interest in the Charolais breed have gone full circle for Cody Runft, this year’s recipient of the Ted Kelly Memorial Herdsman of the Year award. “I don’t know if I ever had a choice or not,” said Runft of his involvement with Charolais cattle. “Grandpa was one of the first to bring Charolais to Kansas in 1956. My dad and uncle owned Runft Charolais Ranch.” Now, 20 years after purchasing his first Charolais show heifer from the family herd, Runft has plenty of achievements to reflect upon, but none top the honor bestowed on him just prior to selection of the Grand Champion Bull at the 48th National Charolais Show held January 28 in Fort Worth, Texas. “To me this is the greatest honor you could ever receive because you’re picked by peers and people you look up to,” said Runft. “To have it awarded to me by one of my best friends, Justin Patrick, and having guys like Stan Cross be the first persons to take a swipe out of my hair, it means a lot to me. I respect them all.” Tradition has past Herdsman of the Year honorees join together in giving the newly tapped Herdsman a haircut following conclusion of the National Show. “I got the ‘traditional’ haircut,” laughed Runft. “There were 15 past ‘Herdsmen’ there that shaved my head. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize how ugly I was until I got my head shaved! From skin tight it doesn’t grow very fast…gray hairs are coming in!” “I got my start, probably a little later than some, and showed my first animal when I was 13,” said Runft who grew up in Scandia, Kan. “I started buying a heifer a year from Runft Charolais. Show heifers turned into a cow herd, and the cow herd turned into my passion.” A true ambassador for the breed, Runft is quick to give a litany of reasons why he enjoys breeding Charolais cattle. “They’re very versatile and can survive environments from Mexico to Canada and on any grass. They make every segment of the industry money!” “Growing up I probably knew I wanted to be in the Charolais breed. I never had any interest in anything else,” said Runft, who had the ability to ‘pick a good one’ from an early age. “G532 – that was my cow. That was the one I picked out of the herd before weaning,” remembered Runft. “Dad said, ‘You win one jackpot show and we’ll go to Junior Nationals’. I won two, but didn’t get to go to Junior Nationals, held that year in Tennessee. Dad decided it was too far away.” But, G532 was still a good pick. She raised the Reserve National Champion Bull in 2011 – CCC Bud Heavy 903 PLD ET. Through

( l to r) Justin Patrick, 47th National Herdsman of the Year and Cody Runft, 48th National Herdsman of the Year. the sale of many progeny, she also impacted the development of Cody Cattle Company. Then, through his friendship with Chris Peuster, managing partner at Wright Charolais in Richmond, Mo., he met Derry Wright. “Nine years ago I moved my cattle to Missouri. Derry and I started buying bulls and cows together. It’s been a good partnership from day one,” said Runft. Now, as owner of Cody Cattle Company, and a partner with Wright Charolais, Runft stays busy focusing on the two herds and their customers. “What I enjoy most is going out and seeing my customers’ cattle and calves out of my bulls,” said Runft. “I like to see how they’re working for them. I love herd visits.” But Runft is quick to attribute successes for both programs to a team effort. Recently married to Lindsay Graber on Oct. 1, 2016, he credits this new partnership and the entire crew at Wright Charolais for the “cussin’ and discussion” that leads to success. Putting emphasis on breeding functional, sound and fertile cattle, Runft says, “Feet and legs are very important. We want bulls that are rugged, massive and durable, and look to udder quality and femininity for our females.” While focusing on selling bulls to commercial cattlemen, the crew also likes to be competitive, typically making appearances at the American Royal, the National Western, the National Charolais Show and the Missouri State Fair, “because it’s in our backyard.” “We enjoy showing the Pens of Three and Pens of Five in Denver and put most of our effort on the Pen Show,” said Runft, noting that Cody Cattle Company had the Reserve Grand Champion Pen of Three there in January, behind Wright Charolais’ Grand Champion Pen. Wright Charolais also had the Reserve Grand Champion Pen of 5, behind Zenhnder-Wagee Partnership, whose Grand Champion Pen was all sired by a Cody Cattle Company and Wright Charolais bull, CCC WC Resource 417P, purchased in 2015. It was another good day in Denver. But when you get to do the things you love, every day is a good day. Show successes and honors aside, “we take it one day at a time, doing what needs to be done,” said Runft. “Right now, we’re getting ready to sell 160 white bulls on March 11.”

Dealing with

BROKEN

Bones in Calves

O

By Heather Smith Thomas

ccasionally cattle suffer fractures, and it’s generally a leg bone. Often it’s a young or newborn calf, and the fractured limb should be cast or splinted for proper healing. Dr. Matt Miesner, Clinical Ag Practices, Kansas State University, Veterinary Health Center, says some leg fractures occur when calves are pulled, if people use incorrect methods when applying chains to the legs. “What is nice today is that I am seeing fewer of these injuries because there is more awareness among producers about how to pull a calf correctly—such as spreading the pressure of the chains with two loops, one above and one below the fetlock joint, and proper use of calf jacks,” he says. “The one injury that we still see at calving is fractures of the femur when a backward calf is being pulled. This happens if the person pulling the calf pulls downward too soon, as the calf is just coming through the pelvis—before the back legs are fully out of the pelvis. Pulling down too soon wedges the calf ’s legs in the cow’s pelvis and fractures the femurs—like putting a stick on your knee and breaking it.” This is the most common fracture he still sees at calving. “With any fracture, we always have to try to figure out where the leg is broken. A break below the carpus (knee or hock) generally has a great prognosis; they heal readily. But with a backward calf being pulled downward, we usually end up with a higher break, which is harder to repair and to deal with in general,” says Miesner. “Fractures of the lower leg tend to occur more commonly after calving, if the cow steps on the leg. These usually heal nicely. Cast material today is fairly inexpensive, strong, and easy to apply. We can splint the leg, but in most instances I recommend casting these, for better stability,” he says. “If a splint is properly applied, it can work well, too. Things like PVC pipe are often used for splints. But if it is not applied all the way around the leg, or at least covering the side and either the front or back, it may not work. I’ve seen splints that actually created more of a fulcrum for the fracture, making it worse just because the splints were not properly affixed to the leg,” he explains. “Cast material, with the veterinarian’s help, generally works best because it form-fits to the leg. The young calves with

breaks below the knee or hock will heal quickly and only need to wear the cast for 3 to 4 weeks. They are growing fast, creating new bone,” he says. The bones are growing so quickly that a person has to make sure the cast doesn’t get too tight. “We have to remember to remove it soon because the calf is growing so fast. I usually write on the cast in big letters the date we are supposed to check it and the date we need to remove it so the calf doesn’t outgrow the cast and create more problems.” Sometimes a person needs to slit the cast lengthwise in a couple weeks and let it expand a bit, and then tape around it to hold it together in a slightly larger size. “Another injury I often see below the hock or knee is a growth plate type fracture. It’s usually at the end of the cannon bone, above the fetlock joint. This is often a processing injury that happens when people are working cattle, maybe at branding time when the calves are several weeks to a couple months old. The leg is broken right at the growth plate, but if you catch it early this will generally heal nicely. We just slide the bone back into place, cast it for as little as 2 weeks, and it heals back together quickly because it is right at the growth plate,” he explains. “The location doesn’t affect overall growth of the leg after it heals. If people can recognize it, we can fix it. What we notice with that type of break is that the leg is not floppy. You will see a significant deviation in straightness of the limb but it’s just slid off the growth plate. It’s stiff, and really hard to get back into place, so the sooner it is recognized the better, so we can slide it back over. These usually require a cast because a splint just won’t be stiff enough to give adequate support,” says Miesner. “Most of the lower leg fractures do very well. The high ones are tougher, especially the femur in the hind leg (between the hip and stifle). A radius/ulna or tibia fracture (between the knee and the elbow, or between the hock and the stifle) usually requires a special type of splint called a Thomas-Schroeder splint. It looks like a crutch that goes beneath the armpit (in front) or the groin (in back) and is attached to the bottom part of the leg at the hoof. The limb is stretched out between the top and bottom; the crutch-type splint spans the whole leg,” he says.

“I have several of these Thomas-Schroeder splints made up in different sizes for different size calves. They can be created for as little as $20 to $30. It’s nice to have a few of them on hand so one can be applied very quickly if needed,” says Miesner. He’s had ranchers use these, and then keep them, and if they ever have another case the veterinarian can simply use the same splint again. “These are always re-usable.” Even a femur or humerus fracture will sometimes heal even though it can’t be cast or splinted. “In newborn calves, sometimes their bone is so thin that they won’t hold screws or pins. I have been really amazed at how often just stall rest (keeping the calf confined and inactive) will work to allow those fractures to mend themselves. We usually put the calf on painkillers and antibiotics for a while, and they do sometimes heal ok in spite of having no way to immobilize the leg. Timing of healing varies. We just have to make sure the welfare of the calf is addressed and monitored during that time. Not all of them heal, and humane euthanasia may be indicated at some point.” But as long as there is no bone sticking through the skin, and no risk for infection, and the calf remains comfortable, it has a good chance. “Compound fractures (bone pieces penetrating the skin) have a poorer prognosis. So we always want to know where the break is, how long ago it happened, and whether there is any bone outside the skin,” he says. He’s seen some cases where poorly applied splints created more issues because they didn’t give enough support and the fracture became compounded and infected. Dr. Andy Acton, (Deep South Animal Clinic, Ogema, Saskatchewan), says that if he gets a phone call from a producer worried about a possible fracture, he asks about the age of the calf, whether it’s a front leg or back, and location of the fracture (though some producers are not sure—they just know the calf is lame). “If it’s a newborn, we ask if it has nursed yet. If the fracture has perforated the skin, the prognosis is not as good. The end result may depend on how much the producer wants to commit to, regarding care and treatment, and the relative value of that calf. Is it a commercial calf, a purebred, or their daughter’s 4-H heifer project calf?” says Acton. “We may use radiographs to assess the fracture, depending on where it seems to be, and whether it’s close to a joint. If it’s a low fracture we’ll use an x-ray to determine whether the joint is involved. This can also tell us what the outcome might be,” he says. “If it is a higher fracture, a radiograph might point us one direction or another in terms of how we might repair it. Sometimes it just needs a simple cast, if it’s a cannon bone fracture on a front or back leg. The cast must go high enough to immobilize the joint above (as well as below) the break.” There 62  

should be no chance for movement at the fracture site. “About 10% of fractures are higher up the leg—above the knee or hock--and we can’t use a normal cast. These are not as common as a fracture of the cannon bone, but veterinarians may try to repair them because we can do some things we couldn’t do, years ago, in terms of options for a good repair,” says Acton. If the rancher is a long ways from the veterinarian, it might be necessary to try to immobilize the break with a splint until the calf can be seen by the veterinarian. “For a temporary splint, one of the best things to put around the leg might be a thick magazine, secured with duct tape, or PVC pipe cut lengthwise, as long as there is enough padding around the leg, under the pipe or the magazine,” he explains. A towel or roll cotton can be wrapped around the leg to pad it. “The type of fracture that would be most worrisome would be a long-angled break with a shard of bone that might perforate the skin. I’ve seen this happen when a producer tried to create a splint--and a break that hadn’t perforated then perforated,” he says. “Regarding care at home, before you bring the calf in, the important thing with newborns is making sure they get adequate colostrum.” You may have to help the calf nurse its mother, or feed it colostrum that you milk from the cow. If necessary you could administer the colostrum via tube or esophageal feeder just to get the job done. “If it will be several hours before you can get that calf to the veterinarian, you need to get colostrum or a replacement product into that calf. If the calf arrives here without having colostrum, I prefer to address that problem even before I take care of the fracture,” says Acton. There are many options today for setting a broken bone, compared to earlier times when plaster casts were the main way to address these problems. “There are very few fractures in young calves that we can’t deal with in a fairly economical fashion. Fracture of the femur (between hip and stifle) and fracture of the humerus on the front leg (between shoulder and elbow) are very difficult, but if it’s the right calf, at the right age, it may heal. The humerus can sometimes be left to heal on its own, and in a few cases the femur can heal on its own—if the animal doesn’t have to travel much, and the muscling is thick enough to help hold that femur in place. This works best on an older calf; a newborn usually doesn’t have enough muscling. If the calf is older, and depending on where the break is on the femur, and how the fracture is lined up, it may heal. We can assess the fracture, and help the producer figure out what they want to do with that calf,” Acton says.

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


“We can tell them what’s involved, and if there’s nothing we can do with a cast, or surgically, that will help, we can discuss what they’d need to do with the calf regarding home care (such as keeping it in a small area so it doesn’t have to travel,” he explains. The humerus often fractures in a spiral. “If that’s the case, as long as the calf had a good start, and has a calm temperament, it may heal. The temperament of the calf and the mother makes a big difference.” If the cow is wild or nervous and can’t tolerate being confined with her calf, it’s not going to work. “Temperament is a big factor, in handling the cow and her baby if you are dealing with a young calf, and also crucial when dealing with an older calf. I’ve dealt with fractures in 600 to 800 pound calves, and their temperament is a huge factor regarding whether we can proceed or not,” he says. Resolving cannon bone fractures is fairly simple. “We just use a fiberglass cast high enough (above the knee or hock) to immobilize it. On the tibia or radius (above the hock or the knee) if the fracture is too high up the bone, we use a version of the Thomas-Schroeder splint,” says Acton. This splint looks like a crutch that goes beneath the armpit (for a front limb) or groin (for a hind leg) and is attached to the bottom part of the leg at the hoof. The limb is stretched out between the top and bottom; the crutchtype splint spans the whole leg. “Those used to be created by weaving them in place with tape but we’ve modified it to where we now use cast material supported by the splint. We’ve had better luck with this adaptation, and most of those calves do fine. We used to have a certain percentage in which the splint would either rub too much and cause problems, or shift and have to be redone more than twice. Now we have a pretty good way to support these fractures.” If the fracture is low enough on the radius or tibia, 2 pins can be driven horizontally into the bone above it, to create an anchoring site to hold a cast in place. “We make a cast that uses those two pins through the bone to stabilize the cast. Those two pins act as the joint above the break. We can’t stabilize the stifle joint or elbow joint with a cast because we can’t get high enough. But if we drive pins through the bone, we can cast from the foot up to those pins and go over the top of them; they are incorporated into the cast itself. We link them together on the outside of the cast material with acrylic ‘glue’. This becomes the joint above the fracture, and we’ve anchored the joint below with a cast right down to the toe. We’ve had very good luck with those,” says Acton. “None of these methods work 100% of the time, and we prefer to work on cases with a high chance of success if things are done right. Open fractures have poor prognosis and we want

the producer to know the odds are lower,” he explains. Those cases require diligent wound care, removing the cast periodically to treat the open wound. The important thing is for producers to follow guidelines for home care. The cast can be removed at the proper time, new padding put between it and the leg, and the shell of the cast put back on as a splint. It can be taped back together with duct tape. “This can continue to support the leg for another week or 10 days. The cast is weakened, however, which makes the leg itself take a little more weight, which helps the bone heal stronger, at that stage, while still giving some support,” explains Acton. This works better than having to use two full casts, two anesthetics and two sessions at the veterinary clinic. “If the producer has some help to hold and restrain the calf, they can just take that cast off, use it as a splint a bit longer, and then remove it completely after the leg has healed,” he says. “Padding at the right spots, but not too much, is very important, along with having the leg lined up correctly. You want a good outcome—instead of a crooked leg or a big knot on the bone. If someone is trying to make a splint at home without proper padding and support at the joints, they run the risk of something that’s not as humane for the calf.” It takes longer to heal and is possibly always painful, and the end result may be a crippled or lame calf. “Cannon bone fractures are fairly simple on babies, but with larger animals it’s harder for them to deal with a cast all the way up the leg. In this situation we’ll use the pin cast method on a low cannon bone fracture. We can put two pins through part of the cannon bone and have a much shorter cast, making it easier for the animal to get around. We’ve done this with 600 to 1200 pound animals. We can also use a pin cast for an animal that needs a cast left on longer, because we are not as worried about sores. The hock or knee can bend normally, so they can get around on that leg fairly well.” He had an interesting case a few years ago. “She was a 1500-pound show heifer and we made her own Thomas splint, using 27 rolls of fiberglass cast material. She healed nicely and is still walking around today, and her owner is flushing embryos from her. The owners did an amazing job taking care of her at home while that leg healed; she needed a lot of good care. It was a team effort, with help from veterinarians who had done something like this before, with suggestions on how to get that big splint constructed, how long to leave it on, and how to manage it. I had done lots of Thomas splints with young calves, so this was just a bigger version--and figuring out what we’d have to do,” he says.

Betting on Charolais By: Cole Simmons

A

ll in is a way to approach a hand of Texas Hold’em, but for Doug and Deb Sellers, at Sellers Cattle Company in Wellfleet, Nebraska, the all-in attitude is how Doug changed his entire program to focusing on the strengths of Charolais bulls. Sellers is the fourth generation operating the western Nebraska ranch nestled in the Sandhills. In 1891 his great grandfather homesteaded the property, making 2016 a banner year as Sellers Cattle Company celebrated their 125th Anniversary. Many more years are on the horizon as the fifth generation, Darren and Amy Sellers, Andy and Dawn Miller, and Dana and Les Reinke are already involved with the ranch, and beaming eyes from Sellers grandchildren, Jhett and Jaylee, have dreams for taking the reins as the sixth generation someday. As Doug remembers the history of the ranch it is apparent that making the correct and effective management decisions at the right time has helped bring them to where they are today. At one time, Sellers Cattle Company ran their calves out on grass and marketed them as yearlings. In 1983 cow numbers were on the increase, helping them to make the decision to only background their calves from then on. “We used to have two season cattle, growing them up and selling as yearlings, but grass was scarce so we made the shift to focus on cow numbers in place of the backgrounders,” Sellers said. With a challenging calf crop that was less uniform than they preferred, Sellers began reflecting on a new strategy—sire selection. This resulted in Sellers integrating a strong set of Charolais bulls into his breeding program to improve hybrid vigor and uniformity for the next calf crop. “It was 1984 that marked the first Charolais bulls that we incorporated into our program, which threw us some really impressive percentage calves,” Sellers fondly remembers. “After 68  

M A R C H 2017

that, we went to 100% Charolais on our cows, keeping the first-calf heifers paired with Angus bulls for the time being.” By the spring of 1985 the first Charolais-cross calf crop was on the ground, thriving and the successful trial made Sellers “Charolais crazy” as he describes it. “It was better than we had been doing for years before that, and it was truly remarkable,” Sellers said. “Once I saw the difference those genetics made on our cow herd, there was no going back.” Ever since then Sellers’ black and black baldie cow herd has been covered exclusively by Charolais bulls year in and year out. In his eyes, it only continues to get better and better. Western Nebraska, like a lot of cattle country, brings harsh winters and rarely enough rainfall. Those challenges combined with wide swinging markets have producers squeezing every resource they can for more production and improved efficiency. At Sellers’ ranch the cows are required to pull their weight and then some. “We stretch our cows to the max by having heavy calves, as safely possible, in an effort to maximize weaning weights,” Sellers explains. “Charolais breed traits fit perfectly into our needs for this and have made the operation more efficient all around. Twice a day is all we need to check the calving cows most times and the docile nature of the bulls has made for easy maintenance outside of breeding season.” In 2015 Sellers went “all in” again. Charolais bulls had brought so many benefits to the cow herd it was time to incorporate white genetics into the first-calf heifer program. Just like that, black bulls turned to white and Sellers never looked back. “We needed a bull for those first calf heifers that wasn’t going to cause any troubles for those females,” Sellers said. “We didn’t want to sacrifice having small, spindly calves and wanted to retain high performance we were seeing from our

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


cowherd.” The standards were set high for performance and calving ease, and that is just what they found from implementing a Charolais-cross on their first calf heifers. “Our goal was weaning big, heavy, high performing calves in the fall,” Sellers explained. “Charolais genetics were able to help us do that across not only our cowherd, but also on our first calf heifers each year. It truly has made a tremendous impact on the crossbred calves that we were able to sell each fall.” Sellers’s son-in-law, Andy Miller, who also describes himself as Charolais-crazy, researched online and print resources for breed traits and bloodlines that had excellent calving ease, birth weight and weaning weight performance. Like the cows, all of the heifers are black, only calving one month ahead of the cows, this year starting in early February. “Last year, we sold about 80 percent of our calves right off the cow and the lion’s share of those first-calf heifers had calves that matched the big end of our mature cow herd’s calves,” Sellers said. “They caught right up and went right up the chute with those cows calves that were 30 days younger.” Sellers couldn’t have been more pleased about the marketability, uniformity and size of the calves he sold from using Charolais bulls on his first calf heifers. The Sellers Cattle Company decision to switch to Charolais bulls in 1984 for their cows and again in 2015 for their heifers has paid off tenfold. Their all-in approach during the decision making process came after a lot of research and evaluation of their operation and its production goals.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extended-release anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age. STORAGE Store at 77° F (25° C) with excursions between 59° and 86° F (15° and 30° C). Protect from light. Made in Canada. Manufactured for Merial, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA.

THE WEIGHT GAIN IS REAL. Go ahead, blink.

A deworming with LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) can help keep parasites from eating into your profits. If you used a conventional dewormer like CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) or in combination, your cattle are probably already reinfected with parasites. That’s because conventional dewormers only last 14 to 42 days and SAFE-GUARD has no persistent effect. Only LONGRANGE delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single treatment.1,2 When you look at the benefits of season-long parasite control with LONGRANGE – you’ll see you have a lot to gain.

Use LONGRANGE on your cow/calf operation and see the difference for yourself.
