VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS Texas Hold ’Em

Charolais, we have a royal flush! Ever play poker? It’s likely most of us have played a hand or two for nickels,

dimes, quarters or maybe, the big spenders, play for a buck. Other than our pride, if we didn’t win, the loss didn’t hurt too badly Chris Moneymaker, 2003 World Series of Poker Champion, once said, “The beautiful thing about poker is that everybody thinks they can play.” Between market volatility, consumer, social and governmental pressures, many aren’t sure if they’re unwilling participants in a high stakes poker game or Russian roulette! Sustainability is an adjective that has become such a catch all for anyone wanting to imply their product is more wholesome and responsibly produced than the next person’s product. Make no mistake, real sustainability is absolutely critical to our existence as food producers as well as a civilization. The fact is the beef industry has been sustainably producing beef for nearly two centuries. According to 2015 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association statistics, the economic impact of beef production was $88.25 billion. U.S. beef production

the best management practices for much of the nation’s vast grasslands. To burn or not to burn. Although pasture burning in the early spring throughout the Kansas Flint Hills has been routine since the buffalo roamed, the practice has been under fire the past few years as the Environmental Protection Agency continues attempts to impose unscientific, ideological restrictions on millions of acres of food animal production lands. Speaking directly to Dr. Capper’s second sustainability tenant, environmental responsibility, Clenton Owensby, Kansas State University, discussed pasture burning issues at the annual KSU Beef Stocker Field Day. Owensby was a member of a four-man panel that talked, from a scientific as well as a practical perspective, about the benefits of burning the Flint Hills pastures. Owensby discussed a 17-year study that documented an increase of 32 pounds per head for steers grazing on burned versus unburned pastures. Mike Collinge, a Kansas stocker operator, told the group it was his experience that grazing on burned pastures added 55 pounds per head to his stockers coming off the Flint Hills. Even if we average the pounds and

“Where does Charolais fit? In all the sustainability discussions, the question of Charolais as a sustainable, responsible genetic option is irrefutable”

was 23.69 billion pounds. Beef production represents the largest single segment of American agriculture. And, American beef producers have continually met, by anyone’s definition, sustainability challenges to produce an adequate supply at an affordable price, while protecting and improving resources. As science and technology have advanced and better management practices evolve, most progressive producers embrace and implement new tools. Jude Capper, Ph.D., is a sustainability consultant and adjunct professor of animal sciences, Washington State University. Dr. Capper has written or coauthored more than 70 papers and presented in over 30 countries on the topics of sustainability, nutrition and the environmental impact of animal production. Through her own admission, what began as Jude’s postdoctoral research, has become a passion. She has dedicated nearly a decade, since her arrival at Cornell University in 2006, communicating to anyone listening, that “all beef production systems can, will and should be sustainable if three things are in place.” First component is economic viability. Relatively new to the sustainability equation is environmental responsibility. Third and most importantly is our willingness to communicate with the consumer. Recent environmental debates in much of beef cattle country focuses on

assume more than 40 pounds could be added to every head that grazed the 6 million Flint Hills acres for 120 days in the summer, the economic impact is staggering. The environmental responsibility debate should be rendered moot. Where does Charolais fit? In all the sustainability discussions, the question of Charolais as a sustainable, responsible genetic option is irrefutable. For those fortunate to head west across Kansas in the spring, the presence of Charolais in the herds of fresh stockers just turned out in the lush Flint Hills is dominant. Keep driving to the feedyards in western Kansas and again you will see Charolais preference among the feeding sector is obvious. Through Capper’s extensive research, she stresses the fact that the beef industry and the entire food production complex are doing it right. However, our deficiency as communicators leave the doors wide open for those with other agendas to tell our stories and plant the seeds of doubt, misinformation and mistrust. A good poker hand in our current marketing environment, is economic viability, environmental responsibility and communication. Add the “river card”, Charolais, and we have a royal flush!

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.

AMERICAN-INTERNATIONAL CHAROLAIS ASSOCIATION

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

Youth Activities Coordinator Kaitlyn Lewis  ext. 201

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.

Administrative Assistant Affiliates Coordinator Judy Clements  ext. 102

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. Features of the Online Registration System

AICA’s online system has several newly enhanced features. Log in with your breeder number and password and you’ll find additional reports listed under the “My Reports” tab. The new Sire/Dam Performance Summary gives options to print lifetime records on individual animals or all active sires and or dams. You also have the option to get reports by calving year. Many other reports are available including performance reports and ultrasound reports. Ultrasound barn sheets can be generated using the report function. You have the option to print barn sheets by calving year or by individual animals. Printing quick copies of individual certificates is another useful enhancement of the “reports” function. Members use the Herd EPD reports to keep up on the most current numbers for the animals in their herd. This list can be sorted by sex and listed in several different orders. There is also the option to choose a birth date range.

Directors By Area

Hey everyone, my name is Rylee Derrer and I am excited to be serving as one of your new, At Large Directors this year! I am currently a sophomore at Iowa State University studying Animal Science and Agricultural Communications. I grew up on a small cow-calf operation near the town of Milan, Illinois. I have been a member of the AIJCA since 2011 and have been hooked not only on the breed, but also the great people I have met in that amount of time. Q: What was your favorite Junior National and why? A: My favorite Junior National would have to be 2012 in

Grand Island, NE. It was my second Junior National, but it is the year I became more involved with various contests and made multiple friendships! Also, my heifer that year, Spice Girl, and I were selected as the Reserve Grand Champion Percentage Heifer Overall, which is a memory I will never forget.

Q:

Why is it important for younger members to get involved at Junior National?

A:

Looking back at my own experiences over the past six years, some of the best friends I have, as well as memories, come from my involvement at Junior Nationals. The various contests and Leadership Conference Sessions teach many valuable skills that I will use not only today, but also for many years on down the road.

Q: What is your favorite Junior National Contest? A: My favorite Junior National Contest is the Team Cook-Off

Contest. My team for the past two years (Hadley, Mitchell, and Emily) has had so much fun just doing our best and being creative with our presentation to the judges. The cook-off contest is not only a fun contest but it can also be educational for the participants as well!

Q: What is your most embarrassing showring moment? My first time showing when I was eight years old, I took my heifer into the ring and set her up but her front foot needed pushed back. I ended up getting my show stick stuck in between her toes and needed the ring man to help me get it out.

Q: What was your favorite show heifer and why? A: My favorite show heifer is named Ms. Pearl. She is one of

the best Charolais cows I currently own and one of the best I have ever walked into a showring with. I cannot wait to see what she can produce for our herd in the future!

24  

N O V E M B E R 2016

Q: What are some of your future goals? A: Upon graduation from Iowa State, I would like to

continue my education and achieve my Master’s Degree in Agricultural Communications. I would then like to obtain a career with the National Cattlemen’s Association working on behalf of livestock producers to ensure that government actions do not cause harm to the livestock industry.

Q: What is your favorite thing about the Charolais breed? I would have to say my favorite thing about the breed is the people involved within it. I feel that the Charolais breed is very close knit, but still so welcoming to new members. Also, the amount of respect that all the members and breeders have for one another is truly admirable and phenomenal.

Q: What is something not many people know about you? I absolutely love traveling and have been fortunate enough to have visited eight different countries by the age of 19: Aruba, Curacao, Mexico, The Dominican Republic, The British Virgin Islands, Haiti, Jamaica and The Bahamas. I plan to continue my love of traveling while in college through various study abroad trips and potentially a mission trip in the future.

Q:

If you won 20 million in the lottery, how would you spend it?

First I would put half of it away for savings. Second, I would pay off the rest of my college education and put the rest toward helping my family pay off farm loans, as well as purchase more cattle, land and equipment when needed.

Q:

If you had some advice to give new junior members what would it be?

My advice to new junior members would be to not be afraid of getting involved. As difficult as it can be to step outside your comfort zone, you will look back and not regret trying something new. Making the effort to talk to one new person each day, no matter if you attend a state show or a Junior National, could lead you to a new lifelong friend!

Winter Cow Management – It Pays to Plan Ahead

By Heather Smith Thomas

management for the cow herd should start before W inter cold weather. Assess the body condition of pregnant

cows when you wean their calves, and have a plan for providing enough feed or pasture so they can maintain or regain moderate to good condition before next calving. They need to be in good condition to handle cold weather, calving and rebreeding. “With adequate condition at the start of winter and good maintenance throughout, most animals winter well,” says Dr. Robert Callan (Colorado State University). “The most important aspect of winter beef cow management is adequate nutrition that will allow cows or heifers to maintain or achieve moderate body condition score--about 5 to 6 on a scale of 9--throughout winter, as well as meet the demands of pregnancy. In times of severe weather conditions, this means additional nutrients, and in some cases, additional shelter from inclement weather.” Thin cows can’t handle the stress of bad weather and lose more weight. It takes more feed to put weight back on a thin cow during cold weather. She doesn’t have an insulating layer of fat, and must rob more of her body reserves to create heat energy to keep warm—so she just continues to lose weight in a vicious circle. To help cattle maintain health and body condition, vaccinations should be up to date, parasite populations assessed, and cattle dewormed and deloused if necessary. Lice can be a serious winter problem in northern climates. Worms decrease performance whenever cattle are intensely managed, grazing the same pastures repeatedly (and the grass contaminated with feces). You don’t want parasites robbing cows of nutrition when they need it most. Check cattle for internal parasites (worms, liver flukes) and work with a veterinarian for optimum timing of treatments if control is needed. If lice are a winter problem in your herd, the best time to delouse cattle is late fall/early winter, before lice start to increase in numbers. Lice thrive in cold weather and also take advantage of a long, thick hair to hide in; cattle can’t remove the lice as readily with their rough tongues. A good kill on lice in early winter—before these parasites affect cattle performance--will generally keep cattle relatively free of these unwanted boarders until spring. If you are feeding cattle during winter, it’s usually a healthier situation to keep them out in large pastures rather than confined. When grouped in pens, they are often lying in manure and may be subjected to muddy conditions. If the hair coat gets matted with mud/manure, it loses its insulating quality and cattle suffer more cold stress. When spread out over large areas, they stay cleaner and are not exposed to as much fecal contamination; their intestinal tracts don’t get much buildup of

34  

N O V E M B E R 2016

E. coli and Clostridium perfringens, for instance, both of which can be transmitted later to newborn calves via the cows’ manure. If you must feed hay, spread it out in large pastures and change feeding areas daily, rather than congregating cattle in small feeding areas or feeding them in the same area every day.

ADJUST FEED FOR COLD WEATHER – How

much hay or supplement a cow needs will depend on weather conditions, her age, body condition, available pasture or crop residue (quality and quantity), whether cows are still nursing calves or dry, or ready to calve again, or calved in the fall-needing more nutrition to produce milk and breed back. Some herds do well through winter on good native pasture without any other feed except a salt/mineral supplement, especially if they’re dry and not nursing calves. In some instances they may need a protein supplement to utilize low-quality forages. If snow covers grass deeply or weather gets cold, however, they may need hay. If weather is cold or stormy, cattle need more energy to maintain body heat. This can be adequately supplied by forages, since fermentation breakdown of roughage in the rumen produces heat. If cattle don’t have adequate energy, they metabolize body fat to keep warm, and lose weight. During extremely cold or windy weather, cows should be given all the hay they’ll clean up, or a protein supplement on dry pastures to encourage them to eat more. As long as protein level is adequate, cows can process/ferment sufficient roughage to provide energy and body heat. Good windbreaks during severe weather are also important, to reduce cold stress and energy requirements.

PAY ATTENTION TO NUTRITIONAL NEEDS – According to Shannon Williams, Lemhi County Extension Educator, University of Idaho, “Most important in winter cow management is to make sure you are meeting your cows’ nutritional requirements according to where they are in their gestational stage.” Salt should always be provided, since this is the mineral most lacking in forages. In many geographic locations, forage may also be lacking in copper, selenium or zinc. You need to know the mineral content of your forages and provide supplements (via salt/mineral mix, bolus, or injectable product) if levels are low. “Trace mineral status of the cow affects all aspects of reproduction and production, as well as future well-being of her calf,” says Williams. In a drought, grass may be short on protein and phosphorus. As a general rule, rangeland grasses hold their feed values better through winter than “tame” or irrigated pastures, or crop residues. These tame forages lose nutrient value once they dry up or freeze, and cattle generally need supplemental feed (hay, silage,

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


grain or a protein supplement and mineral mix) to complement that type of forage. If pasture is gone or snowed under and you’re feeding hay, having cattle in several groups is best, since their needs are different. As stated by Williams, “You don’t want to ‘waste’ hay (or money) by feeding better quality feed than they need. Cows in early or mid-gestation don’t need your best hay. Save it for later when they are calving or feed it to heifers and 2-year-olds. The only way to truly know the nutritional value of hay is to have it analyzed in a lab. I’ve seen some ‘ugly’ hay that was high in protein, and some hay with great color that had very little protein,” says Williams. Weaned calves need the highest quality feed. Next would be pregnant heifers--and 2-year-olds that just weaned off calves. The 2-year-old winter is a critical time; these young cows are still growing and may be pulled down in body condition while nursing their first calves, and pregnant again. If they go into winter thin, they need to catch up in body condition so they can give birth to healthy calves and rebreed on time. Mature, dry cows can get by on lesser quality forage, whether pasture or hay, until late gestation. They don’t need as much protein or energy because they’re not growing or needing to gain weight. If cattle are in separate groups, you can feed the young or thin ones for growth/weight gain without overfeeding the whole herd. Feeding all cattle the same ration (or using up your best pastures too soon with the whole herd) can be costly. Young/thin ones may not get as much as they need; older, bossier cows tend to eat more than their share of any hay or protein supplement. Adequate protein is crucial during the last 60 days of pregnancy for development of the unborn calf, and for the cow’s formulation of colostrum. Timely vaccination with a scour prevention vaccine needs to be administered at this time also, if scours have been a problem in the herd. IMPORTANCE OF FALL NUTRITION – Stockmen often underestimate the importance of adequate nutrition in the fall, not paying attention to whether cows are losing or gaining weight. According to Ron Skinner (a veterinarian and cattle breeder near Hall, Montana), about 70% of the open cows in Montana each year are the result of inadequate fall nutrition rather than what they’re fed in the spring before and during breeding. Fall feed and body condition play a large role in a cow’s ability to have a healthy calf and feed it properly--and breed back again. If cows get behind in the fall, in body weight and/or important trace minerals, this has a longer impact than people realize. Cows need adequate, balanced diets, which may mean adding a trace mineral supplement to native pasture, or a small amount of good hay, or a protein supplement if grass becomes too dry, or a full feeding of hay if the grass becomes depleted or snowed under. If the cow is deficient in protein or phosphorus through fall and winter, she won’t rebreed on time after she calves again.

LOW-COST WINTER GRAZING ALTERNATIVES – Some stockmen reduce winter feed costs and labor by relying less on forage that must be hauled to the cows and more on letting cows harvest feed themselves. There are several ways to do this, including stockpiling pastures (saving them for winter grazing), windrowing forage for winter use (which keeps it at the stage of maturity it was cut, retaining more nutrients than if allowed to become fully mature and dry), and bale grazing (leaving big bales in fields for cattle to eat, rather than hauling them to a stack and then hauling them back out during winter). “Keeping cows grazing stockpiled or windrowed forages as long as possible and then keeping harvestedforage feeding to a minimum is essential to a low-cost wintering program and profitable cow-calf operation,” says Jim Gerrish, American Grazing Lands Services (May, Idaho). “Closely monitor cow body condition and then use strategic supplementation to stretch out stockpiled pastures. Even with the relatively high cost of adding protein to the diet, using a supplement to enhance stockpiled pastures or rangeland is almost always a lower-cost option than full feeding hay,” says Gerrish. With stockpiled or windrowed forage, cattle will push through relatively deep snow to get at it--unless snow is thickly crusted. There is less waste if portable electric fencing is utilized to move cattle gradually across a field. These methods can stretch harvested feed supplies by lengthening the grazing season, but care must be taken to monitor cattle condition and make sure they have access to water and windbreaks. The same is true with bale grazing. A calculated number of bales (to provide x pounds per day per cow per number of days) can be placed in rows, with twines removed before wet, freezing weather makes that task difficult. Electric fence allows cattle access, using the next row as a handy place to insert “posts” (into the bale) rather than trying to drive them into frozen ground. Some ranchers bale-graze with young stock, too, letting weanlings/yearlings into each new section first, with dry cows following to clean up the rest of the hay--moving both groups when cows finish their section. Manure is spread over fields uniformly, which is a plus for next year’s growing season.

When you get information from the managing partner to; “definitely start the catalog with #6174 and give her the whole page” you know this must be some kind of a special heifer! The first progeny of CCC WC Resource 417 have just started hitting the sale circuit this fall as weaned calves and they have indeed been impressive, topping sales and creating interest. Resource of course topped the 2015 Wright and Cody Cattle Bull Sale when ½ interest and only fall possession sold for $44,000 to a small group of breeders Broberg Charolais, Wild Indian Acres, Ridder Farms, Clear Creek Charolais and KM Charolais. His sire Rushmore quickly had multiple sons topping sale after sale this past spring 2016 at bull sales across the U.S. Rushmore is now a triple threat AICA Trait Leader in Calving Ease, Birthweight and Multiple Traits! And now WC CCC Sweetheart 6174’s dam-Baldridge Sweetheart 7M!!!! She is writing new pages of Charolais history with each passing month in our breed. They don’t let many of her daughters escape the fences around the ranch, so be paying attention here. This heifer will be admired for her big belly, great look, character, hair, balanced EPDs and pedigree heritage. Presented with Cody Cattle Company

Here is another Resource heifer that will grab lots of attention. WDZ WC Heidi 615 is a great show heifer prospect that is sound, big-bodied with a great look! Her WC dam, was the high-selling female in our 2013 Female Sale, selling to Sydney Zehnder, daughter of Chad & Cameo Zehnder in Minnesota. We took her to the National Charolais Show in Denver that following January, she got sick out there and we battled that for quite a time and she didn’t hit the show circuit for Sydney. She went to the breeding pasture and has excelled. Her first calf was born well before her second birthday, was sired by WC Big Ben 9036 and weaned off to an impressive 112 weaning weight ratio. This heifer is her second calf and we think you’ll agree that it is only getting better. This entire maternal cow family is stacked with power, turn to the back cover of this catalog for more data.

This heifer has amazing body shape, combined with a great hip and still really long necked. Her dam #9550 really cranks them out. Her first calf went into the J Bar S purebred herd in Kansas, her second calf sold into the J&J Trust purebred herd in South Dakota. And they should be her donor dam #440 has been over productive her entire long flush history and her maternal great dam Baldridge Elvira 103H who sold for $24,000 years ago has also left her mark of greatness on the breed.

Here is one that will make a great show heifer and then has as much potential as any to go to the pasture and make one heck of a brood cow. She is sired by our 2013 high-selling bull, the popular WC Benelli 2134 that sold for $50,000 for ½ interest and fall possession to Southern Cattle Company and The Benelli Group, led by Bovine Elite! Benelli’s dam is the wildly exciting JWK Clarice J139 who will go down in Charolais history with the greatest ever!

Looking for the longest, coolest necked heifer in this sale offering? Stop right here. She is sired by Full Metal Jacket, one of Baldridge Sweetheart 7M’s most powerful son and one of the first progeny of hers that brought instant recognition. A full sister to Full Metal Jacket, WC CCC Sweetheart 4108 brought that pedigree back into play when she was tabbed the Reserve Grand Champion Female during the 2015 American Royal show in Kansas City. Then add in the bottom side of this pedigree with her tremendous dam by Up The Limit out of a Blue Value daughter that really milks well.

Her dam is a full sister to Full Metal Jacket we just mentioned in the Lot 8 footnotes and is also a full sister to the American Royal champion. This is quite a pedigree of maternal strength when you not only have up tight in the pedigree tabulation the dam of Rushmore, the dam of Rocketfuel, Baldridge Sweetheart 7M & 444, but the WC Queen 1120 cow that produced WC Total Rush 3044, the 65 lbs. birth weight standout in this program, yet her first two bull calves went on to adjusted weaning weights of 840 lbs. and 863 lbs.!!!!!!
