VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Swinging for the fences seldom is a good strategy for beef producers.

Sucess by profit and loss

L

iving in Kansas City, home of the KC Royals, it’s too easy to make a beef marketing analogy with the mediocre performance of our beloved Royals season thus far. The team has gone from a half-game out of first place in the American League Central Division to dead last after sub-par performances for a couple of weeks. Like beef industry market swings, thankfully, it’s a long season and slow and steady almost always produces a winner in the end. Recently, monthly contributor to BEEF magazine, Harlan Hughes, discussed beef cattle profitability, or lack of, based on a three-year marketing trend. The analysis confirmed what our industry analysts have been telling us for a while. Historically, beef cattle inventory numbers have ebbed and flowed since 1957, which was one of the low points in the cycle at 90 plus million head. The largest increase in numbers was seen in the 1970s as inventory numbers shot up to more than 130 million head. The near six decades since 1957 have shown a downward

little control over. Trade policy is incredibly complicated and laborious and the results aren’t immediately noticeable. Yet today, the absence of global trade is potentially more devastating to the beef industry in America than any historical environmental or geographic “market buster”. Although the U.S. is ranked as the fourth largest beef exporter, we are arguably the largest exporter of high quality beef. A focus on improving beef quality through science and technology has enabled the cow-calf producer to moderate cow size, increase weaning and yearling weights and improve the quality of the end product in the meat case. The Hughes article discussed the fact that more heifers were being held for replacements. It’s plausible to assume the 1.2 percent increase in heifers held for replacements will be genetically better than the cows they are replacing and have the potential to produce even higher quality beef. Industry analysts use many metrics to forecast the future

Cow-calf producers using Charolais to influence their herds have unprecedented options to manage risk through genetic improvement. numbers trend to the present, which is slightly more than the 90 million head and trending up slightly. Hughes reminds us of the historical cycle dynamics that have moved the needle up or down. Factors such as drought and disease have been consistently experienced throughout the history of meat animal protein production and influenced the national cattle inventory. The inventory numbers are important and this recent report is even more relevant as we consider the reality that we are producing far more beef from fewer cows. Expanding our borders and forging relationships with new trading partners around the world have been a keystone in sustaining demand for more beef as our output increases. Possibly the most undervalued market dynamic for commercial cow-calf producers in America is understanding global trade. According to numbers reported early in 2017, Brazil, India, Australia and the U.S. are projected to account for 73 percent of global exports. The competition for market share is fierce and, like drought and disease, are factors beef producers have

markets and one factor remains constant. The potential to increase the U.S. market share, domestically as well as globally, is connected to continued quality improvement. We have the tools and the intellectual capacity to stay on a steady course toward improving the end product with every calf crop. Cow-calf producers using Charolais to influence their herds have unprecedented options to manage risk through genetic improvement. Cattle feeders recognize the market demand for higher quality beef and are implementing better feed and finishing management strategies. From the ground up, progressive cow-calf producers and industry partners, cattle feeders and processors are doing their part to make sure the consumer has affordable choices for high quality beef. It’s a good thing the success of the beef industry isn’t measured like baseball, by a final score after playing 162 games. Our successes are measured by profit and loss, market access and consumer acceptance over decades and generations.

Sales of Bred Females

Females sold bred must have all breeding information included to complete the transfer. Service date and appropriate sire signatures are necessary. Dispose of Animals

Dispose of animals you no longer have by using the online system. The disposal button is at the bottom of the “Quick Look” screen. DO NOT dispose of bulls still being used, regardless of their status. DO NOT dispose of animals you are selling with papers. AICA DNA Requirements

AI Sires used “out of herd” and all Donor Dams must be DNA tested before calves can be registered. AICA recommends collecting DNA samples during the donor’s initial flush. Check the animal’s record to make sure the DNA work has been done before submitting registration papers. DNA kits are specific to the animal being tested. Contact Marilou Wegner to request a kit. AICA rules require signatures on bulls and dams you do not own. Signatures can be submitted online, fax, mail or e-mail.

Link Your Herd Management Package to AICA

AICA has launched a new service that provides the framework to allow on-farm herd management computer software to exchange data with the AICA office. By using this service, breeders can avoid entering data in to both their local software and AICA’s online system. The software package would send AICA the data. If you wish to take advantage of this new service, ask your software vendor to contact AICA.

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 Bunostomum phlebotomum Cooperia oncophora Cooperia punctata Haemonchus placei Oesophagostomum radiatum Ostertagia lyrata Ostertagia ostertagi Trichostrongylus axei Lungworms Dictyocaulus viviparus

Lungworms Dictyocaulus viviparus – Adults

Grubs Hypoderma bovis

Mites Sarcoptes scabiei var. bovis 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.

Obituary

John Gerald “Jerry” Taylor, Buffalo, Mo., entered into eternal life on March 27, 2017. Jerry was born on February 29, 1924, to John and Ada Forrester Taylor, one of seven siblings and the last survivor. Jerry married Mary Virginia Likes in 1948 in Macomb, Ill. They have three daughters: Pam and Gary Naylor, Buffalo, Mo.; Lana and Dr. Bruce Packard, Magnolia, Texas; and Melody and Mark Herman, Holland, Mich. They also have three grandchildren that Jerry adored: Brett and Brittney Naylor, Centralia, Mo., Sarah Packard, Magnolia, Texas, and Marie Packard, Des Moines, Iowa. Jerry also leaves behind countless friends who loved him and were part of his family. Jerry and Mary lived in the Bushnell-Prairie City, Illinois area until 1986. Jerry was a crop farmer and raised Purebred Shorthorn Cattle. Cattle was his love and he won many championships across the country showing his prized Shorthorn cattle. He also was a well-known and well-respected cattle judge, traveling the United States judging all breeds of cattle from the Cow Palace in San Francisco to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, to many state fairs and county fairs. In 1986, Jerry and Mary relocated to Buffalo, Mo., to be closer to daughter Pam and her family. Jerry continued his cattle judging and was often found helping local cattlemen. His walls in his home office are adorned with plaques and awards he has received throughout the years. To name a few, they include: University of Missouri Long-Term Commitment and Support of the MU Extension Program (2013), 2013 Pioneer Award of the Ozark Empire Fair Foundation, Charter Officer and Director of the Land of Lincoln Purebred Livestock Breeders Association, 2002 Long-Standing Service and Dedication to Missouri State Fair, National Livestock and Meat Board Director (1970-1973), Land of Lincoln Livestock Award 1987, Schuyler County Fair Honorary Director (1977), Illinois State Fair Board of Directors (1970–1986), and McDonough District Hospital (Macomb, Ill.) Board of Directors (1970- 1982). Anyone who met Jerry became a friend. He never met a stranger. He especially loved helping kids with livestock projects. Jerry always had a smile on his face and the most positive attitude. He never had a bad day. Jerry loved flowers because they were bright and cheery. But in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The American Shorthorn Association Foundation, c/o Bill Rasor, 1800 Lovers Leap, Van Alstyne, TX 75495. 20  

AICA Visits King Ranch

Charolais breeders from 15 states boarded a bus on March 25 to tour the historical King Ranch, Kingsville, Texas. The day started with a stop at the ranch’s Visitor Center where a bus was boarded for a guided historical perspective tour of the headquarters’ ranch. Attendees enjoyed a Cowboy Camphouse Barbeque and spent the afternoon in Kingsville visiting the King Ranch Museum and Saddle Shop while enjoying the quaint downtown area.

King Ranch Notes

• Larger than 23 countries and Rhode Island – 825,000 acres with ranching, oil and gas, farming, feedlot and hunting enterprises. 1,600 miles of fencing. • The “Running W” brand is a ranch trademark.

leadership conference session preview: CAPTURING AGRICULTURE ON CAMERA – Monday Session

Video has the power to take viewers to locations they may not have otherwise visited, introduce new points of view, and raise awareness about the science of agriculture. In this session, you will learn some tips and tricks for using mobile devices to record and edit interviews and footage about agricultural and environmental topics. Bring your tablets and smartphones to give it a try! This session will be taught by Dr. Jamie Loizzo, Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication at the University of NebraskaLincoln. Loizzo has worked in television newsrooms in three states, developed educational videos for agricultural audiences and Purdue Extension, and served as project manager for a nationwide electronic field trip program. At UNL, Loizzo is beginning a program called Streaming Science to connect middle and high school students with university researchers through video, podcasts, and live webstreams produced by students in her courses. Raising Nebraska will be open daily during Junior National from 9 am to Noon and 1 to 4 pm.

ADVOCATE THROUGH PIZZA – Monday Session

Think about pizza. How does that pizza go from raw product to delightfulness? Could you share the agriculture story through pizza? In this session you will! In teams, you will practice your advocating skills while making a pizza in front of a panel talking about all aspects of agriculture. By the end you will have a pizza you will be able to eat! This session is taught by Elizabeth Janning, Extension Educator at Raising Nebraska.

HUSKER MOBILE BEEF LAB EXPERIENCE – Thursday Session

The Mobile Beef Lab provides a hands-on experience for students and teaches science principles through a ruminant animal – it’s complexities and what makes the ruminant truly unique in the environment and ecosystem. Students are able to put their arm inside the animal’s rumen and feel the incredible environment where digestion is taking place. They are also able to look at a sample of rumen fluid under a microscope and see some of the numerous microorganisms that live in the rumen and break down the feed that the animal eats. This Nebraska Extension mobile lab’s goal is to teach the value of, and support the production of, high quality, protein beef animals.

CHANCE TO WIN TWO OPPORTUNITIES FOR 1-ON-1 TIME WITH A PROSTAFFER Stay tuned for more details!
