VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Vern said, “Don’t leave money on the table!” Provide a product perceived as valuable.

Dr. Vern Pierce, University of Missouri Beef Economist, met with the AICA board during a long-term planning session several years ago. At the time, the beef industry was still finding its way through the evolution of a value-based marketing system. Before the meeting began, Dr. Pierce strategically placed a crisp one-dollar bill before each member. He made his presentation and concluded by asking how many intended to keep leaving money on the table. Pierce used the significant increase in value realized in the lettuce industry as an example of adding value to a commodity product. By moving from the traditional head of iceberg lettuce (commodity) in the supermarket produce section to brightly labeled bags of prepared, ready to serve variety lettuce (branded), the industry took advantage of a consumer signal.

During his presentation, Pierce said, “What we need to do is provide a product which has characteristics that consumers perceive as valuable.” At the time, early in the development of value-based marketing systems, he told us that commodity marketing did not allow producers to get the signals or information needed to change the value of the product. Although Pierce’s presentation to the AICA board was a few years ago, every nugget of information he shared is now a reality. One major difference recently providing stronger pricing support is the sheer number of beef cattle and producers in the U.S. The industry overall has experienced significant contraction in the past three years. The price of live cattle as well as beef in the meat case has increased. Consumer’s have seen a 12% increase in the price of beef in the supermarket in some geographic areas in the past year.

“the beef industry’s ability to prosper...depends on predictability, efficient production and genetic improvement from the producer. The lettuce industry changed from an $82 million industry in 1986 to more than $1.1 billion in 1996. Supermarket sales of fresh-cut salad increased from $982 million in 1997 to $2.0 billion in 2002. The word, convenience, trickled down from the consumer, the producer listened and spurred amazing growth. For some, the stream of beef industry information may feel like overload. The warp speed movement of science and technology can be incredibly daunting. Yet, for anyone with a little entrepreneurial spirit, the opportunities have never been greater to add value to beef. The beef industry’s focus on new product development is remarkable. As an example, checkoff dollars have funded research resulting in Beef Value Cuts, 13 steaks and roasts that provide consumers with affordable beef at a price point between premium steaks and ground beef. Flat iron, petite tender, western grillers and ranch steaks, are just a few of the newer delicious consumer choices available today. Several of the cuts meet stringent American Heart Association guidelines for Heart Healthy. According to www.beef.org, these new cuts accounted for approximately $959 million in sales in 2011. Cattle-Fax estimates the resulting value added to the chuck and round, where the “new” cuts are fabricated, to be approximately $50-70 per head. Age and source verification, predictable, known genetics, better nutrition management, improved health programs, expected progeny differences (EPDs) and more recently, genomic information and the ability to more reliably target a chosen end point all compound the opportunity for everyone to enjoy a profit. Adding value to the producer, feeder and packer obviously is important. However, making certain we respond to ultimately, the most important voice in the food chain, the consumer is paramount.

The price of most all weight classes of feeder cattle makes one scratch his head. Even though overall demand in the U.S. is flat or even decreased a bit, the export for beef has grown exponentially. The beef industry is using the product knowledge and carcass information to address multicultural market demand due to growth in both Hispanic and Asian populations in the U.S. The beef industry is responding to consumer demands globally and recognizes the extraordinary opportunity to supply beef to emerging economies around the world. The bottom line is the beef industry’s ability to prosper from gate to plate, now more than ever before, depends on predictability, efficient production and genetic improvement from the producer. The packer must have a consistent carcass with both red meat yield and quality. Nowhere in the analyses by industry economists like Dr. Vern Pierce is there support for the growth of commodity beef. The future of the beef industry depends on all of us as representatives and producers of registered seedstock to due diligence, embrace technology, use the tools and be reasonably certain that the live product that leaves your pasture has inherent value regardless of end point. Vern Pierce isn’t a fortune-teller. He’s a highly respected industry opinion leader today willing to present a different message about a new, controversial marketing system a few years ago. His message was spot-on then and even more relevant today. As he concluded his presentation to the AICA board, most members had left the crisp dollar bills on the table. It’s a safe bet those dollar bills would quickly disappear today!

VIEWPOINT

GENETIC Robert Williams,

Director of Breed Improvement Director of Foreign Marketing

50K Genotypes We need your help!

Identifying genetic differences between animals in

the Charolais breed for economically important traits which allow producers to make informed breeding decisions is how I would define the purpose of the Charolais performance programs and genetic evaluation. An EPD is a prediction of how future progeny of a sire or dam are expected to perform in a particular trait relative to other animals in the analysis. The key word is “difference” as the EPD itself does not imply “good” or “bad” performance. But rather, the EPD gives a prediction of the average difference to expect in the performance of an animal’s progeny relative to other animals in the same analysis. Expected Progeny Differences additionally and just as importantly are accompanied with an accuracy (ACC) value. Accuracy is a measure of reliability regarding the EPD evaluation for a performance trait. Accuracy is reported as a decimal number between zero and one. Large ACC values indicate greater accuracy and more certainty that the EPD will show little change as additional progeny information is obtained. Expected progeny differences have been shown in numerous field studies to be the best information available to make a directional change in the cowherd for the trait of interest. Furthermore, researchers continue to search for ways to improve the accuracy of those predictions. To this end the AICA Breed Improvement Committee and Board of Directors during their spring meetings took a progressive approach to building a database of 50K Genotypes. This will allow AICA to begin the process of enhancing our genetic evaluations through improved accuracy, especially in younger animals. As AICA works through this process we must remember that we can only progress at the rate we collect phenotypes for those traits of value to the Charolais breed. Genomic enhanced evaluations rely on high quality phenotypic data (performance traits such as birth weights, weaning weights, ultrasound measurements, etc) to be included in national cattle evaluation programs. Watch for details in the Charolais Journal and the AICA website over the summer as the details of this program are finalized and released.
