Here’s an offer (we hope) you won’t refuse!

Genomic data is important to evaluation.

F

rom now until the fall board of directors meeting in late October, OR until we reach 2,000 new samples, the cost of a genomic test has been reduced to $25! Have you ever worked on a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle? The outside borders are the easiest. The longer one works on a puzzle, the more tedious it becomes. All the pieces begin to look alike. Nothing seems to fit. Then, suddenly, you find one piece that fits, and hundreds of other pieces almost fall into position. Genomic data is the illusive missing puzzle piece that, once discovered, accelerated seedstock producers’ genetic selection options to previously unimagined predictability and accuracy. The larger the genetic database, the more accurate the tools and more reliable the cattle are throughout the supply chain. A few short years ago, major breeds began the process of educating seedstock producers, aligning with third party genomic companies to receive DNA samples, and returning raw genomic data to breed associations. Genomic data has rapidly become the

equally as important. Fast forward to today. Our ability as a breed association to continue to improve the accuracy of the genomic database and the selection tools through the constant infusion of new genomic data, depends on you. On March 26, the AICA board of directors agreed to subsidize the cost of genomic testing. From now until the fall board of directors meeting in late October, OR until we reach 2,000 new samples, the cost of a genomic test has been reduced to $25! The newly implemented Neogen/GeneSeek GGP BOV50K test includes parent verification. Progress made by every beef breed in America in the traits of economic importance can be attributed to the increased use of artificial insemination, embryo transfer and the implementation of genomic data into genetic evaluations. The accuracy and predictability of the data largely depends on the number of records turned in by registered seedstock producers. Every AICA member must make the best decisions for their

On March 26, the AICA board of directors agreed to subsidize the cost of genomic testing.

The newly implemented Neogen/GeneSeek GGP BOV50K test includes parent verification. common currency for determining a value base across registered and commercial beef production. The ever-pressing need for more DNA samples, thus more genomic data, contributes to a larger, more robust database which will become even more important tomorrow than it is today. Many members will recall we began the process of genomic testing in 2015. The goal was to reach a minimum of 2,000 samples to complete the first genomically enhanced genetic evaluation. The Spring 2018 National Cattle Evaluation, released in late December, took another step by incorporating the use of single-step genomic evaluation methodology. Dr. Sally Northcutt, Method Genetics LLC, and AICA Genetic Consultant reported in the January 2018 Charolais Journal, “Single-step genetic evaluation is an exciting milestone in ensuring that Charolais breeders and their commercial customers have improved genetic selection tools that will reliably characterize Charolais genetics moving forward.” Single-step methodology is a modern, proven technology in beef, dairy, swine and poultry. Genomic data is critical to the modern evaluation toolbox. In addition, the continued practice of collecting and submitting phenotypic records and ultrasound measurements are

own individual operations. However, it is critical to the continued wide acceptance of the Charolais breed that we understand and acknowledge the value of genomic information throughout the beef production complex. Since the beginning, genetic evaluation tools were only available to registered seedstock producers. Today, genetic evaluation tools are being used by commercial cow-calf producers to determine female replacements, characterize cow herds and predict performance. Commercial producers are using genetic information to market steers and heifers. Progressive cattle feeders are aggressively seeking more genetic information. Cattle feeders and customers retaining ownership are using genomic information as a first line risk management tool. As your breed association, we encourage you to take advantage of the reduced cost and submit DNA samples on your cattle. There is no limit on the number of samples that can be submitted per member. The goal is to add genomic data on a minimum of 2,000 head of Charolais cattle. The cost to you is $25 per test!

Female Inventories Now Due

AmericanInternational Charolais Association The AICA is the official registry for Charolais and Charbray cattle in the United States. Charolais cattle were first brought to the U.S. in 1936. In 1957, the American Charolais Breeders Association and the International Charolais Breeders Association merged forming the present AICA. Membership in the AICA is obtainable when the applicant has ownership in at least one animal, and has paid the initial membership fee of $125. AICA annual dues are $100.

WHR Inventories received between May 1st through May 31st – $20 per female; after June 1st – $32 per female. The WHR program includes a free registration and transfer for the 2018 born calf. The PPR program is available at no-charge; however, you will pay registration and transfer fees on each calf. Enrollment is available online. Click into “My Inventory” to get started. Junior National Entry Deadlines

The 2018 AIJCA Junior National Show & Leadership Conference will be held in Des Moines, Iowa, June 17-22. Early registration deadline is May 1 and late registration/ownership deadline with late fees is May 10. All entries will be completed online at www.CharolaisUSA.com. New 50K Technology at a Lower Price

From now until the fall board of directors meeting in late October 2018, OR until we reach 2,000 new samples, the cost of a genomic test (GGP BOV50K) through AICA has been reduced to $25. This test includes parentage. AICA continues to offer the horned/polled test at $45. AICA Sire Selector Tool

Learn how to use the AICA Sire Selector Tool by viewing the instructional video posted on the AICA website and YouTube. Utilize the AICA Sire/Dam selector to identify genetics according to EPDs, TSI index and additional search parameters. Performance Deadline Approaching

Performance data must be submitted to the AICA office by July 15th to be included in the Fall 2018 Genetic Analysis. Please make sure calf data, weights and weigh data have been submitted online or on forms to AICA. 10  

Double Check Paperwork

Spring is a busy time in the Registration Department. Please plan on at least a week turnaround time. Make sure your registration certificates are completely filled out before you send them to the office. Date of sale must be submitted on transfers. 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. Year letter for 2018 is F.

Record your 2018 born calves using AICA’s online system. Add the data as the calves are born; continue to update the records as you add weaning and yearling data. Register the calves at any time by adding their name. Display a Photo of Your Herd Bull or Cow on the AICA Online Registry

For a fee of $25.00, AICA will upload the animal picture to the their page on the AICA Online Registry System. Each time someone pulls up your animal on the website, the picture of the animal will appear. To have your herd bull or cow included, you must supply a picture in JPEG format. Please contact the AICA office or send an e-mail to mschoen@charolaisusa.com. 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.

2018 AICA Seedstock Producer of the Year Award

Dybdals AI most of the purebred herd and do quite a bit of embryo work with their commercial cows. He says they do a lot of embryo work to introduce new genetics faster than traditional breeding. In addition to their cattle operation, the Dybdals have been involved with the Nebraska Charolais Association and American International Charolais Association and the junior association. From Cattle Business Weekly, By Wendy Sweeter Obituary

Dybdal Charolais of Newcastle, Nebraska, got their start in the purebred Charolais business in 1989. Larry Dybdal grew up on a commercial cow/ calf operation two miles from where he currently runs his operation with his wife, Krista, and their children, Taylor, Ty and Trisha. At the 2018 Nebraska Cattlemen’s Classic, Dybdal Charolais was presented the 2018 AICA Seedstock Producer of the Year award. Dybdal Charolais run about 200 Charolais cows and 150 commercial black cows. They also grow about 1,500 acres of corn, soybeans and alfalfa. They recently held their seventh annual bull sale in Laurel, Nebraska where their offering ncluded 40 bulls, five show heifers and 25 bred cows. Prior to having their own bull sale, they sold bulls private treaty or attended winter shows and sales. Most of their buyers come from northeast Nebraska, with some coming from southern Nebraska and South Dakota. They also send a lot of bulls to northwest Iowa. Most of their bulls go to commercial buyers, but they do sell a handful to purebred breeders. “The things we select for are moderate frame, easy-keeping type cattle. Cattle that are going to milk, cattle that are going to put pounds on their calves,” Dybdal says. He is also selecting cattle that can handle the weather and terrain in northwest Nebraska.

Paula Camburn Hammond, 67, of Florence, passed away on March 16, 2018, at her residence, surrounded by her husband and children. Paula was born in New Albany, Mississippi, and grew up in Memphis, married and moved to Florence, Alabama in 1978. Paula attended Westminster Presbyterian Church. After marriage of 40 years, raising her sweet daughters and loving her precious grandsons brought her years of happiness. The funeral service was March 19 at Greenview Memorial Chapel. A private graveside for the family. She was preceded in death by her father, Dewey Camburn of Collierville, Tennessee. Survivors include her husband, Daniel J. Hammond of Florence, Alabama; children, Abbie Hammond of Florence, Alabama and Sarah Blaylock (Brandon) of Birmingham, Alabama; grandchildren, Soren and Ransom Blaylock both of Birmingham, Alabama; sister, Lisa Curry (John) of Germantown, Tennessee; brother, Ron Camburn of Collierville, Tennessee; niece and nephews, Ian and Aaron Curry, and Abigail Curry of Germantown, Tennessee, and mom, Virginia Camburn of Collierville, TN. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir Scholarship fund or to the animal rescue or shelter of your choice.

Directors By Area

H

ey guys my name is Matthew Owings and I am your Area 6 Director. I come to you from the Show-Me State of Missouri and reside in the small town of Potosi. I am currently working on my bachelor’s degree at Texas Tech University. While here at Tech, I am a member of the Red Raider Livestock Judging Team. I’m ready for a great Junior National in Des Moines, Iowa and cannot wait to see all of you there!

Q: Who inspired you to become a board member? A: Growing up in the Charolais breed, I have many great

mentors and friends that have served as members of the AIJCA board. It is something that I have always wanted to be a part of from the start. Sitting in the stands at opening ceremonies year after year looking up to the older kids that were the face of the AIJCA, it became a dream of mine.

Q: How did you get involved in the Charolais breed? Q: What was your favorite show heifer and why? A: My father was working at White Wheel Charolais Ranch A: Everyone has that one show heifer from over the years

in Rankin, Illinois, when I was born and from the time I was able to walk I loved to be in the show barn and out checking cows. You could say that I was hooked on white cows from day one.

Q: What is your favorite thing about Junior National? A: My favorite thing about Junior National is getting to

see the Charolais breed grow and develop. Not only with the cattle that everyone has brought from across the United States, but to see how we have progressed our breed. Also, it’s really impressive to see how the young people of our organization have grown over the past year.

Q: Where was your first Junior National? A: I attended my first Junior National in Rochester,

that sits out in the pasture and has a special place in your heart. She may not even be a female that won the most as a show heifer. This is my case, my favorite show heifer would be a heifer that I bought from High Prairie Farms, her name was Sara. The saying “ ’Bet she’ll make a great show heifer and even better cow” would apply to her. She never won her class at a major show always standing second behind the National Champion heifer of Kassi Bauman. Sara went into production and raised the Junior National Champion Owned Female in 2009 and has become a cornerstone for my herd.

Q: What is your favorite thing about the breed? A: My favorite thing about the Charolais breed is how we

are one big family. Like all families we are not the most functional sometimes, but everyone is always willing to lend Minnesota, in 2003. Going to Junior National was something a hand when things need done or someone needs help. that I had looked forward to for a couple years at that time. So, when I was able to take my Bred and Owned Heifer and Q: If you won $20 million in the lottery, what win my class at my first Junior National that had to be my would you do with the money? favorite moment. It is one of my most prized possessions, the size and style of my belt may have changed over the A: The ongoing joke at my house is that if I ever did win the lottery that I would have it all spent before noon. So, years, but the buckle has stayed the same. if I was to spend 20 million dollars the first thing I would Q: What influences do you see Junior National do is buy a ranch of my own and build my dream show barn. Then I would buy the best five white cows I could find, having on our breed? finally I would create a A: I believe that the Charolais Junior National has a major and scholarship to give back to the impact on our breed. This is the event that brings our youth AIJCA because I know without from all across the United States under one roof. It is where this organization I would not lifelong friendships are made, and how the future breeders be the person I am today. and leaders of our breed are developed. 16  

IT TAKES MORE THAN A LITTLE LUCK TO KEEP CALVES HEALTHY.

It takes the power of Pyramid® 5 + Presponse® SQ, the only approved combination vaccine that protects for at least 217 days against BVDV Type 1b — the most common subtype of BVDV in infected calves. Vaccination provides a protective effect against the development of post-challenge viremia and leukopenia. Choose the viral and bacterial protection of PYRAMID 5 + PRESPONSE SQ, and realize that luck has nothing to do with raising healthy, high-returning calves.

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:

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 extendedrelease 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.

You may only have them a short time.

B U T YOUR commitment IS

LONG-TERM. That’s Why You Need LongRange®(eprinomectin) For Up To 150 Days Of Parasite Control.1 Looking out over your herd, the sight is full of potential. But if you used a short-term dewormer like Cydectin® (moxidectin) or Dectomax® (doramectin) on your stockers, you’re not getting the most out of your pasture. That’s because cattle were probably reinfected with parasites just halfway through the grazing season.

Only LONGRANGE delivers true season-long control.1

40 lbs.

In just 104 days, LONGRANGE steers gained 40 lbs. more over those treated with CYDECTIN + SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole).2

Out here, there is no time for shortcuts. This year, think LONGRANGE.

theLONGRANGElook.com Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.Warnings and Precautions: For use in cattle only, not for use in humans or other animal species. Keep out of reach of children. Not for use in breeding bulls, or in calves less than 3 months of age. Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing.

2017 AICA Hall of Fame Inductee — Harlan & Sue Hecht.

T

he Hecht’s Charolais story began in the late 1950’s when Harlin was reading The Farmer magazine and saw an article on this new breed, Charolais, that had entered the United States. He was impressed with what he saw.  Then in 1960, his father, Herbert, purchased three ¾ and 7/8 Charolais cows and Harlin observed how fast their calves grew compared to the Angus cows he had. His thought at the time, “This is the Breed of the Future.”  A few years later, Herbert purchased a Charolais bull, Flores who traced back to original Mexican bulls such as El Jefe, Titano and Wee 58.  Harlin and Sue were married in August 1967 and lived in an apartment in Evansville, Minnesota, where Harlin was a vocational agriculture instructor and Sue worked as an extension economist.  One day Harlin saw a newspaper ad for a Charolais dispersal sale – the Hecht’s purchased what they thought was the best cow there, D E Lora and bull calf. Thus, the foundation for their Double-H Charolais program. Lora’s first calf for the Hechts, Double-H Laura, a 1969 daughter of Ali Baba Bramard, is historically significant becoming the first AICA Sterling Dam of Distinction – her mounted head hangs in the AICA office today next to Miss Linn No. 33, Number 1 in the AICA Registry. The Double-H program has produced 7 AICA Sterling Dams in its history. Later in the year, Harlin and Sue purchased additional females including a purebred heifer that they showed at the Minnesota State Fair – 2017 marked the 50th consecutive year they have shown Charolais at the fair. In 1969, Harlin took a job with Land O’ Lakes which continued for 39 years.  Late in 1970, they purchased their current farm near Paynesville, Minnesota, from William and Julia Zimmerman, one of Minnesota’s original Charolais breeders.  That acquisition allowed Harlin and Sue to gradually increase the size of their herd and raise their family. Interestingly, the Minnesota Charolais Association was organized in their kitchen. The first few years in Charolais were a struggle financially, but the Hecht’s persevered and started showing cattle around

the nation. They had good days and bad, but always enjoyed the Charolais people.  In 1979, a bull named Double-H Polled Showman was born and achieved many Grand Champion honors across the United States and Canada. The Hecht’s sold 8 syndicated interests in him, later selling him to American Breeders Service. In the breed’s first Sire Summary (1987) Showman and 3 sons were Progeny Proven Sires.   Over the past 50 years, Harlin and Sue and their sons, Howard, Mark and Dale have been actively involved with the Charolais breed. Harlin served as the AICA President 2011-2012; he was an Area Director beginning in 1983 when the AICA headquarters was relocated to Kansas City. Today he remains active serving on AICA committees. In 2006, Harlin was recognized as the AICA Herdsman of the Year at the 37th National Show in conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of the National Western. Harlin was the first Charolais breeder to be inducted into the Minnesota Livestock Hall of Fame in 1996. Sue has been active in Charolais Dees serving as President and being a member of AICA committees and planning past AIJCA Junior Nationals hosted by Minnesota. Sons Howard and Mark are past Presidents of AIJCA and Dale was a Director and honored as Junior Herdsman of the Year. During their AIJCA careers, the sons exhibited countless class winners and a Bred & Owned Champion Heifer. Today, the Hecht grandchildren have continued the Double-H tradition of competing at Junior National. Today the Double-H Charolais program is heavily involved with embryo transfer and was the first AICA member to utilize the new CharAuctions.com technology. Harlin and Sue were honored as the 40th National Show Dedicatees at the 2009 Fort Worth Livestock Show recognizing their achievements in and for the Charolais breed. Since founding the Double-H program on February 6, 1968, they have strived to produce quality performance Charolais cattle with the right look. They have maintained an active leadership role in guiding the breed into the next generation.
