VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

One investment that’s a sure thing! Junior Livestock Shows

About this time of the year, breed associations shift their focus from an

intense spring marketing season to the next generation and the summer junior national shows. These week-long annual events are packed with exhibits, competitions and leisure activities all intended to foster core values like responsibility, integrity, humility and sportsmanship. Junior livestock shows in America are as steeped in history as the beef industry itself. The Oklahoma Youth Expo (OYE) just celebrated its 100th anniversary. OYE board chairman, Bob Funk, recently stated, “At the first junior show, $3,800 in prize money was offered. This year, more than $300,000 in scholarship money and $1 million in premiums will be awarded.” Tyler Norvell, OYE executive director said, “The Oklahoma Youth Expo is the world’s largest livestock show. Each year we hope to have over 13,000 animals exhibited by over 7,000 kids. We’re also teaching kids about agriculture and producing food for the world.” Norvell goes on to state, “Our economic impact over the 10 day period to Oklahoma City is close to $25

The first lesson of ownership equaling responsibility is learned. Feeding, grooming, exercising, animal welfare and patience are learned while doing… and doing again and again. Entry into AIJCA and ownership of the first live project may likely be the first time parents truly must take a step back and watch to see if the life lessons they have attempted to teach so far have resonated with a youngster. To say a youngster’s entry into a calf project is costly is an understatement. Every parent knows it’s just the beginning. However, the financial investment has paid off for generations, as more informed, better educated and committed young adults return to continue as beef industry decision makers in their own family’s operations. “Explore the Northland” is the 2015 edition of the AIJCA Junior National Show and Leadership Conference and will be held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, St. Paul, Minn., July 5-10. Every Charolais enthusiast is invited to attend. In addition to premiums awarded to grand and reserve champions,

“You are invited to join us for one of the most exciting and event filled weeks in the Charolais world. You will witness hard work resulting in excellence first hand. ” million.” Former OYE board member, Rick Maloney offered even more relevance. “As we get into that generation removal from the farm, less and less young people all the time can go to grandma and grandpa’s house and see the food and fiber system in this country. To have this understanding of the importance of animal agriculture is a long-term benefit.” The AIJCA membership host one of the largest and strongest junior national shows and leadership conferences in the U.S. While many of the exhibitors will show cattle, eight non-cattle educational and competitive events are scheduled in an effort to be inclusive of every AIJCA member wanting to participate at any level. Both individual and team events are scheduled to encourage even greater participation. An outsider looking into the many annual state and national junior livestock shows and leadership conferences will miss nearly all of the most important take home messages. No kid just shows up to compete. A kid interested in agriculture and livestock can’t wait for the magical eighth birthday to become eligible to compete. Parents and grandparents are almost always forewarned that a youngster is already eyeing a calf in hopes of beginning a competitive journey that will last a lifetime.

$1,000 scholarships will be awarded to the Grand Champion Owned Female and Grand Champion Percentage Heifer. Long time sponsors, Cliff and Lynn Orley, Lebanon, Pa., have sponsored the Grand Champion Scholarship since 1994. Larry and Robbie Lehman, Tioga, Texas, have sponsored the Grand Champion Percentage Heifer scholarship since 2005. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the exhibitor of the Grand Champion Bred & Owned Female. This award is sponsored by Jeanine Doughty, Harrisonville, Mo., in memory of Carol Doughty, Big Creek Charolais. In addition to scholarships received from cattle exhibits, members will be awarded approximately $40,000 from the AIJCA Foundation. These scholarships are earned based on leadership, activity participation and academic excellence. Vince Lombardi once said, “The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.” You are invited to join us for one of the most exciting and event filled weeks in the Charolais world. You will witness hard work resulting in excellence first hand.

Howdy!

I am Dillon Elder, AIJCA at-large director from Blum, TX. I am 18 years old and currently in my senior year at Whitney High School. This fall I will be attending Texas A&M University and majoring in Agricultural Leadership and Development. I enjoy showing cattle all over the country and playing basketball. I also engage in numerous activities, such as helping on the family farm, being active in the National Honor Society and watching sporting events.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Junior National? A: Junior National is by far my favorite cattle show in the

country. Each year, I look upon the impending Junior National week with an unparalleled amount of excitement. In fact, Junior National serves as my summer vacation and also my favorite week of the year. I enjoy all of the activities, contests, conferences and meetings that we have within that eventful week. That being said, I would have to say that all of the unique friends I have made over the years is definitely my favorite part of Junior Nationals. Making friends from all over the country has been a really cool experience and I am thankful the AIJCA has offered me that opportunity. I am hopeful that these friendships will impact my life for many years to come. For anyone who is pondering whether to attend Junior National, I highly encourage you to sign up for an amazing experience.

Q:

not know them personally at the time, I looked up to them and decided that one day, I wanted to be one of them.

Q: Who inspired you to become a board member and why?

A: I would say that it was a combination of every board

member that came before me. The impact they had on all of the juniors truly astounded me and injected me with great intrigue. I looked upon them as celebrities and tried to pattern the way I conducted myself throughout the week according to their actions. I do have to give special credit to Dusty Pendergrass and Macie Wagstaff for helping me decide how I could become a successful member of the board. Any question I ever had about the association, those two were there to answer and help me. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to run for the board to find a mentor and follow their ways.

Q: What is your favorite show in Texas and why? A: My favorite show in Texas is the Houston Livestock

Show & Rodeo. The last of our three major shows, Houston has always been the show that reminds me most of the fun experiences of the Junior National. Exhibiting my heifers at a high level and spending an exciting week with friends has always greatly appealed to me.

What is your favorite thing about the Charolais breed?

Q:

The people involved in the Charolais breed are truly special and of high character. There are many complements I could pay to those people by using simple adjectives but that doesn’t do them justice. This group of people have not only helped me to improve my knowledge of the Charolais industry, but also to become a better person overall. These generous people open many avenues for the juniors of the association. I have always been especially impressed with the work the adults put in towards putting on our Junior National each year. I can never remember an instance where a large problem existed at any Charolais show I have attended. That just goes to show the incredibly high character of the people in our breed.

A: I am a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. So, naturally, I would

A:

If you could be any person in the world for a day who would you be and why?

choose Tony Romo. I would love to be able to have the feeling of being the most famous person on my favorite team. Also, it would be fun to spend a day with his beautiful wife and maybe pocket some of his $108 million contract.

Q:

Why did you choose to get involved in the Charolais breed?

A: My mother has been raising and showing Charolais cattle

since 1978. So, long before I was born, it was decided which breed I would show. But, once I began exhibiting Charolais, I realized that predetermined or not, this was the breed for me.

Q: Where was your first Junior National and what was Q: If you were on a desolate island and could only your favorites memory from it? bring three things, what would they be and why? A: My first Junior National was in Wichita Falls, TX in 2007. As a shy youngster, I didn’t create as many of the friendships A: If I could bring ANY three things to a desolate island, I have since made. However, I do remember that I enjoyed all of the contests and exhibiting my heifer at such a high level of competition. The lasting memory of that first Junior National was the impact the Junior Board members made on me. While I did

This will be my last column as Director of Breed Improvement programs here at AICA as I have accepted another opportunity. This summer will mark the 17th year here at AICA and as I have reviewed some of my earlier columns, proper collection of phenotypic data is no less important than it was then. In one of my first columns I wrote “Proper data collection and subsequent reporting of information to AICA is imperative to having the most accurate and informative analysis as possible.” This remains just as true today, collection of phenotypic data will always be the cornerstone of genetic improvement programs because it’s the only way to validate we are moving in the right direction in regards to our selection tools. Since 1998 we’ve moved from a genetic evaluation that included EPD for birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight and maternal milk to an evaluation that now includes scrotal circumference, calving ease direct, maternal calving ease, hot carcass weight, ribeye area, carcass fat, and marbling EPD. Additionally, six of those traits are now genomically enhanced EPD. AICA was also one of the first breeds to lead the charge to incorporate ultrasound data into the carcass evaluation as most breeds computed ultrasound and carcass EPD separately. AICA was also the first beef breed in the US to release a terminal sire selection index. The AICA Breed Improvement Committee and AICA Board of Directors have led the charge to maintain a stable genetic evaluation that has made possible positive genetic trends for those traits that effect profitability for beef producers. The AICA is positioned to move forward as new technology becomes more affordable and can be applied to genetic selection tools making those tools more accurate than ever before improving production and efficiency. Producers must be diligent in collecting useful data for a multitude of traits for all animals in their program. We must remember that at the end of the day for beef producers, profit is a matter of pounds of a quality product and the inputs it takes to generate them. It’s been an enjoyable 17 years and I want to say thank you to a dedicated and terrific AICA staff. I’ve enjoyed working with AICA members, those producers using Charolais genetics and Charolais breeders around the world through our foreign marketing programs and having the opportunity to host many of them here in our great country. Through AICA I’ve made friendships that will last and be cherished for a lifetime.

Extended-Release Injectable Parasiticide 5% Sterile Solution NADA 141-327, Approved by FDA for subcutaneous injection For the Treatment and Control of Internal and External Parasites of Cattle on Pasture with Persistent Effectiveness CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. INDICATIONS FOR USE LONGRANGE, when administered at the recommended dose volume of 1 mL per 110 lb (50 kg) body weight, is effective in the treatment and control of 20 species and stages of internal and external parasites of cattle: Gastrointestinal Roundworms

Lungworms Bunostomum phlebotomum – Adults and L4 Dictyocaulus viviparus – Adults Cooperia oncophora – Adults and L4 Cooperia punctata – Adults and L4 Cooperia surnabada – Adults and L4 Haemonchus placei – Adults Grubs Hypoderma bovis Oesophagostomum radiatum – Adults Ostertagia lyrata – Adults Ostertagia ostertagi – Adults, L4, and inhibited L4 Trichostrongylus axei – Adults and L4 Mites Trichostrongylus colubriformis – Adults Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis Parasites Gastrointestinal Roundworms Bunostomum phlebotomum Cooperia oncophora Cooperia punctata Haemonchus placei Oesophagostomum radiatum Ostertagia lyrata Ostertagia ostertagi Trichostrongylus axei Lungworms Dictyocaulus viviparus

Durations of Persistent Effectiveness 150 days 100 days 100 days 120 days 120 days 120 days 120 days 100 days 150 days

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.

*Statistically significant

Thanks to LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin), parasite control will never be the same. Comparing more than 15,000 head in nine states, stockers treated for parasites with LONGRANGE gained an average of 28 lbs. more over DECTOMAX® (doramectin), CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) and ivermectin-treated cattle – even when used in combination over 103 days.1 And at today’s market prices, that adds up to an extra $56 per head. Not bad for around a $5 investment.

Vita Hair Volumizer Foaming Shampoo

The first livestock shampoo to scientifically produce hair volume! Vita Hair Volumizer™ Foaming Shampoo is formulated with a natural plant-based proprietary surfactant technology that creates an opposite acting polar electrical charge within each hair strand that actually pushes every hair follicle apart. This prevents the hair from sticking together, and actually springs it loose, making each hair follicle stand on end for a noticeable difference in hair volume and body. This, never before offered, exclusive chemistry for livestock consists of chemically altered ions. Ions are small electrical molecules within surfactants that usually have positive or negative charges which create an attraction to each other. In livestock hair, this attraction causes the hair to stick to each other. The non-ionic chemistry of Vita Hair Volumizer™ inhibits an unusual neutral charge to the ionic molecule of each follicle creating no attraction or pull between the hair strands. This neutral charge actually enables each hair follicle to stand free for extreme hair separation. All this with a plant based neutral pH, making it gentle and nourishing to the hide and hair as it gently cleans deep, down to the roots of each hair follicle. Fortified with Sullivan’s VITA HAIR™ a nourishing vitamin package to boost hair and skin health without added weight to hair. Designed to be used in a foamer.

A true “game changer” in hair performance!

SENSATION CURVE

TM

Introducing Sullivan’s SENSATION CURVE, this NEW twist to our popular SMART SENSATION delivers even more stimulation to the skin and adds body to the hair coat, making it a hair growth must have. With the SENSATION CURVE’S 302 precisely placed ball point teeth, no hair will be left clinging to the hide. Best for dull, lifeless hair that still needs volume due to lack of base coat. Not only does the SENSATION CURVE contains 134% more teeth than the SMART SENSATION, but the teeth are also narrower and more flexible to allow hair and skin to be stimulated with an even gentler massage. The SENSATION CURVE’s design also has a more rounded curvature to the brush, which encourages more fluid rhythm to the hair working process while the Sullivan’s NEW texturized grip enhances the users comfort. Like the SMART SENSATION, the SENSATION CURVE is healthy for hide and hair. By providing a gentle massage to the hide it stimulates blood flow that releases natural oils from the skin to coat the hair and promote healthy hair growth. This brush will be the perfect addition to your daily hair growing tools. Available June 15th.
