VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS

Lots of water under the bridge Join us for the National Shindig

Most of us take time for granted. We show up for work, day after day,

until one day, we’ve been at a job or a profession for decades. We take new technology as it comes. As time passes, we forget what it was like before we had a particular technology or tool. Time honored traditions play a role in any organization. After all, longevity is most always a good thing! Saturday, November 1, we will celebrate the 46th Annual National Charolais Show held during the American Royal. The American Royal will be celebrating its 115th year! There’s been a lot of water under the proverbial bridge since the first National Charolais Show in 1968. In 1968, the Dow was closing around the 950 mark. As of this writing, the Dow closed at 17,261. In 1968, the average cost of a new home was $14,950, while average incomes were $7,850 per year. Gasoline was $0.34 per gallon and the price of a new car was $2,822.

A ticket for a Division I football or basketball game is easily a three-digit expense, per ticket. Tickets for a family of four to a Kansas City Chiefs game at the top of the stadium is approximately $2,000 PER GAME! It’s a pretty safe assumption that most fans never actually occupy a seat at one of those events. Livestock shows provide a competitive opportunity for anyone and a front row ticket to watch is free! Livestock shows are a family affair. Often, the younger generation is competing in the show ring while two generations of family sit in the stands and anxiously await the judge’s decision. Or, more often, the entire family is involved putting the finishing touches on before entering the ring. It isn’t uncommon to show up in the alleys after a livestock event and it resembles the best of tailgate parties! The 2014 Fall Board of Directors Meeting (BOD) and the events at the

“...the events at the American Royal make up one of the Charolais breed’s most celebrated weeks.”

Minimum wage was $1.60. If you worked for your parents on the farm or ranch, you did well to make that! If you were one of the lucky “farm hands” that made $1.60, you were likely saving for a 4-H or FFA project. In 1968, social unrest was the reality of the day. The civil rights movement and the war in Vietnam were the catalysts for change that moved the nation forward to a new age and a new generation of ‘normal’. Thankfully, some things don’t change. In 1968, as it is now, the coasts and urban areas make the news. Rural America remains focused on the enormous responsibility to harvest crops, milk the cows and raise beef to feed the masses. Some will argue the value of livestock shows today, in 2014. After all, 46 years ago, we had no other options to evaluate live cattle. Today, we have an arsenal of technological tools that provide unprecedented predictions for traits of economic importance. However, today just as it was 46 years ago, phenotypic analysis and comparisons within a breed are still relevant to best practice beef production. And, there’s no better place to see the best of the best than a show ring. Most all of us have a favorite professional or college team we root for.

American Royal make up one of the Charolais breed’s most celebrated weeks. In addition to the 46th Annual National Show, the 36th Annual National Charolais Sale will be held Friday, October 31, 12 PM. We hope you will make plans to join us for the national “shindig”, Thursday, October 30, at the American Royal Governors Room. The shindig is sure to be a fun-filled social event. You won’t want to miss an opportunity to get your tickets to participate in the “draw down”! The “draw down” is a fun game that gives all participants an opportunity to add a little extra jingle in their pockets. AICA is an inclusive organization with the purpose of registering, promoting and marketing Charolais and Charolais-influenced cattle to the beef industry. We encourage anyone with an interest in the association or the Charolais breed to make plans to join us for the Fall Board of Director Meetings, Wednesday, October 29 and Thursday, October 30. The American Royal events will begin after the conclusion of the BOD meetings. Join us! You can have the best seat in the house for free!

The American-International Charolais Association has been building a research database of genotypes to predict GE-EPD and improve the accuracy of selection for younger Charolais bulls and females. The AICA Board of Directors appropriated funding for the first 1,000 genotypes. We have exceeded this recommended requirement of researchers. Thank you to Charolais breeders and other collaborators in assisting AICA in exceeding this goal. Continuing research is ongoing between GeneSeek, Iowa State University, AGI and AICA to complete this project.

New Features for 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. Under the “tools” tab, you will find a new “Data Export” button. This data export gives you the flexibility to export data on animals in your herd and use those data files in your own management packages. You can download and save the files directly to your computer in a CSV (can be opened in Excel) format. There are many options within this feature including selecting the type of animal to export and specific data. Advertising Deadline

The deadline to place advertising in the November 2014 Charolais Journal is September 25. Contact your area field representative about advertising opportunities in this issue as well as other available options. Spring 2015 Sire Summary

The deadline for submitting performance data to be included in the Spring 2015 Sire Summary is November 15th. Please make sure calf data, weights and weigh dates have been submitted online or on forms to AICA. AICA using GeneSeek

The AICA is now using GeneSeek for parentage testing, contact Marilou Wegner to request a kit. The kit is specific to the animal being tested. AICA rules require AI sire and donor cows be tested if they have not been.

EFFICIENCY

in the Beef Cattle Industry:

Developing a New Paradigm By Megan Rolf, Oklahoma State University Assistant Professor of Beef Cattle Management and State Extension Beef Specialist

E

very business wants to achieve the highest levels of efficiency possible, and the beef industry is no exception to that rule. Today’s beef industry uses 19% less feed, 33% less land, 12% less water, and 9% less fossil fuels to produce a pound of beef as compared to a pound of beef produced in 1977 (Capper 2011). In addition, over the last 30 years, the carbon footprint of beef has been reduced by about 16% (Capper 2011). Similar improvements in beef cattle production practices are detailed within NCBA’s reports on their life cycle assessments, and can be viewed at www.beefresearch.org. Many of these improvements have been due to selection for growth paired with use of technologies such as feed additives and implants. The future promises even more efficient beef production practices through genomics and other technologies that allow selection and management of more advanced traits and phenotypes. Although the public is often not aware of the benefits of these technologies, nor the positive impacts producers have achieved en route to more efficient beef production and sustainability, these new technologies for beef cattle improvement promise a rare opportunity for improvements in novel traits that increase the sustainability of beef production while decreasing its impact on the environment. In the past few months, the beef industry has been hit with a barrage of negative press regarding the efficiency of beef production relative to plants and other animal proteins. Whether you accept that at face value, or whether you think beef provides important benefits often ignored in the popular press, beef production will always be at a disadvantage when compared to monogastrics like poultry and swine, because of beef production’s high land usage and the innate inefficiencies of ruminants on high concentrate diets. However, beef production often utilizes untillable lands, and the fact that beef cattle spend most of their lives in pasture conditions and not in confinement should be seen as positives. Building upon and increasing our efficiency in both land and natural resource usage can foster a more positive image for the industry while enhancing our bottom line. It’s hard to argue with the benefits of increasing efficiency when it improves both our pocketbooks and the beef industry’s public image at the same time.

20  

O C T O B E R 2014

How do we continue to improve beef production efficiency when we’re already doing a pretty good job? Over the last few decades, producers have done an exceptional job of selecting for average daily gain, feed conversion rate, and feed:gain. A lot of the successes we’ve experienced have been made possible by efficiency-enhancing technologies which have increased the performance of our cattle. One of the ways we can bolster these improvements is to address those efficiencies that are harder to measure. Defining efficiency and deciding how to select for it has always been a challenge, but there are numerous research efforts ongoing that should shed light on these issues and generate the tools cattlemen will need in order to continue increasing efficiency in the industry. Historically, one of the challenges that has always garnered attention is feed efficiency, and for good reason. Through improvements in feed efficiency, we should be able to increase the amount of beef produced per unit of feed, whether we choose to increase weight while leaving intake constant (a concept promoted by selection for residual gain) or decrease intake while maintaining or increasing output weight (a concept promoted by selection on residual feed intake). Feed is the most expensive part of beef production, and some estimates top 65% of the total costs of beef production (Ferrell and Jenkins 1985), so it should be apparent that gains made in feed efficiency will continue to have dramatic returns in profitability of beef cattle operations. Feed efficiency is typically measured in growing animals within individual animal intake facilities (either research facilities, bull tests, or other established testing centers), and often in either steers or bulls. Some studies have evaluated the correlations between the feed intake and RFI of heifers and their subsequent performance as cows and found that they have a high genetic correlation, but a lower correlation with actual performance in those two traits (Archer et al. 2002). However, the direct correlation to feed efficiency on a completely pasture-based diet has yet to be determined because the data is so difficult to collect. Typically, we assume that animals will rank similarly on concentrate diets as compared to forage diets (Arthur and Herd 2005). Measuring feed efficiency in beef cows has continued on page 59

VIEWPOINT

GENETIC Robert Williams,

JAN. 16 ~ FEB. 7

Director of Breed Improvement Director of Foreign Marketing

national roll of excellence charolais cattle show - Jan. 31

Efficiency Management, Heterosis and Genetic Selection In recent discussions with Dr. Donagh Berry, a research geneticist in Ireland suggested to reduce beefs environmental footprint producers should breed fertile cows to high growth bulls to produce fast growing calves. This would reduce days on feed, improve profitability while reducing the industry’s environmental footprint. Dr. Berry’s comments were in the context of a total beef production system where producers took advantage of mating systems to enhance the use of available genetics to meet this goal of efficiency. I would go further to say that a strong focus on reproduction, calf survivability, and health; all have major impacts on beef efficiency. It should be obvious that improved percentage of calves weaned per cow exposed improves profitability. A study of the Texas A&M sponsored Ranch to Rail project further showed that healthy calves resulted in lower death loss, improved performance, improved carcass quality and improved profitability. Many of these improvements in efficiency can be addressed through improved management practices and the proper use of heterosis. But there is much left that can be addressed through genetic selection. Genetic evaluation continues to improve as technology advances. For example, the cost of using DNA has become much more cost effective to the point now that we have commercial uses available to producers. This will continue to expand through competition of companies who offer the technology and as research groups take advantage of lower costs. However, new technologies have only amplified the need for phenotypic data. To more completely realize the advantages of technology to improve genetic selection we need access to the best phenotypic data we can get. As calves are weaned this fall and performance data collected keep in mind the initial reasons behind whole herd reporting. Reporting performance data for all calves born in proper contemporary groups, breeding herd information to include dam teat and udder scores, reproduction, and reasons for culling breeding animals from the herd are all important to improving beef production efficiency.

AICA Board of Director Area 2

Nominees

Reed Brasher • Brasher Charolais

Born and raised on the Charolais ranch I currently own. Also, ten year owner/manager of an insurance company with multiple locations. As far as Charolais activities, this is one place we really need to improve as a region. There is really not a sale or a show for our region to get all the breeders and their cattle together so that we can socialize and compete. We need to organize a few events regionally and gather some excitement for the breed in and out of the association. We need to advance our marketing strategy which will help our end consumer (our commercial bull buyers). I think we need to share more information with Canada. That will make both our data and our projections more reliable. Currently our sample size is too small and that means our projections are skewed and inaccurate. I’ve been involved with Charolais cattle my entire life. I would like to see the breed advance not only locally but globally.

Jerry Maltby • Broken Box Ranch

Jerry Maltby is a seedstock producer who knows that crossbreeding cattle, especially with Charolais, pays. Jerry and his wife, Sherry, own Broken Box Ranch near Williams, CA, about 60 miles north of Sacramento. Their operation, located in Colusa County, includes purebred Charolais cattle, a feedlot and conventional and organic rice production. Both active in their industry, Jerry is Colusa County Cattlemen’s president and Sherry, who is involved in the ranch’s recordkeeping, has been twice recognized by the Glenn-Colusa Cattlewomen as Cattlewoman of the Year. Jerry’s father started Broken Box Ranch in the 1950s with purebred Herefords. He didn’t agree with that breed’s decision to follow the trend to smaller-framed cattle in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, though, so he and Jerry decided to pursue a different route – crossing Charolais on their purebreds. Their first exposure to Charolais was through a beef class Jerry took at the University of California-Chico. Soon after, in 1962, they located a Charolais bull in California and began using this breed. Jerry purchased his first purebred cows in 1963. They are presently running around 150 Purebred Charolais cows. Jerry started an All Breeds Bull Test Center in 1978 and operated it for 12 years. He has operated both commercial and purebred operations in California and Oregon. Jerry is presently a director of the California Cattlemen’s, Director of the California BCIA, past director of the California Beef Council, and President of the Glenn Colusa Cattlemen’s. He has participated in numerous bull tests throughout the west. Jerry and Sherry were selected as the recipients of the California Beef Cattle Improvement Association’s Seedstock Producer of the Year award. He is also serving on its Board of Directors. Jerry also serves as a director of the Family Water Alliance. I was involved in the Western Charolais Association in the 60’s and 70’s serving on the board as well as sales and show chairman. I also served on

several committees in AICA including the performance committee and served as President of the California Charolais Association in the 70’S. I am presently serving as the AICA Area 2 Director and have served or am serving on the Long Range Planning, Commercial, Marketing, and Finance Committees of AICA. I am presently serving as director of AICA from AREA 2. I have seen a lot of changes to the Charolais breed since 1963. Some good some not so good. We are at a point in time where we need to prove to the commercial producer that we are the best breed to fit the needs of both the cow -calf people, the feeders and the packer. We have to press the advantages of Charolais bulls by using both hybrid vigor, increased weaning weights, feed efficiency, and yield as our main focus. I am not in favor of trying to make us like the British breeds or trying to breed them to look that way. In the west, we are seeing more commercial cattlemen going away from the straight back cow herd because they have figured out that loosing 75 plus pounds at weaning a straight bred calf can only be made up with a 13 cent premium. There isn’t such a thing! Gene testing in my view will be the best , most accurate measurement we will have in the future, far exceeding EPD’ s. We are driving a Ford F250 now but in a few short years, it will be a GT 40 race car. However, we cannot forget our mistakes of the past of too heavy birth weights and improper structure in our cattle. I would like to again serve as your director and will always keep the breed’s welfare as my main purpose while serving the membership. I hope that breeders will contact me to let me know what their thoughts are and what I can do to improve the actions of the board and staff of AICA.

Dennis Metzger • Metzger Cattle Company

I have been an American-International Charolais Association member for over 30 years. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s I operated Metzger Cattle Promotions which included sale management, auctioneer services and campaigning high quality Charolais seedstock for many of the breed’s premier programs. In 1995 I was recognized as the AICA Herdsman of the Year and in 1997 was honored as the AIJCA Junior National Show Dedicatee. Also during this time, I was director for the Nebraska Charolais Association for a number of years. In the following years I worked nearly 12 years as a field representative for the AICA/Charolais Journal. This position evolved into my becoming AICA Director of Commercial Activities where I successfully started a Charolais influenced feeder cattle procurement program that was revenue positive for the association. I currently operate a Charolais, SimAngus and commercial cattle operation. I am a Superior Livestock Representative and operate a livestock auctioneer business. Charolais cattle have had a significant impact on my good fortune. I have been very privileged to work with and for many influential cattlemen, the AICA and Charolais Journal, commercial producers and feedlots. We as Charolais breeders have a very solid foundation and bright future. I certainly would like the opportunity to contribute in the breed’s position as a continuous leader in today’s very competitive cattle industry.

Board of Director Nominees Area 4 Spencer Schrader • Schrader Ranch

I grew up on a diversified livestock operation. After graduation from Kansas State University in 1997 with a B.S.in Animal Science, I took a position as Assistant manager at 10,000 head commercial feedlot and married Laci Hammer in 1998. In the fall of 1999, we had the opportunity to independently break from our family operations to start Schrader Ranch where we live today. Since 2000, I have worked as a consultant for Suther Feeds Inc. for all segments of the production beef industry with primary focus on facilitating cattle trades and retain ownership relationships the last 5 years. Laci, Weston, Josi and I are working to grow our commercial bull buyers for the offspring of the 350 plus seedstock and commercial cows that we currently run. Currently, we sell on average 70 head of Charolais and Simmental/Angus bulls annually. We also summer graze yearlings and background calves in the fall and winter. Our family is heavily involved in the AIJCA. The showing aspect is an enjoyable activity for the Schrader Family. However, our core belief is that the true benefit from the organization is all of the contests and activities as a whole. Our family has served on two different planning committees for the Junior National, and I have attended fall and spring meetings for the AICA. We are active members of the Kansas Charolais Association and I serve as an advisor for the Kansas Junior Charolais Association. I personally believe that all successful organizations have transparency and accountability which lead to efficient problem solving and longevity. I become unsettled when leadership and/or representation have less at stake than those they are to lead or represent. When times are good it is human nature to become complacent. We all have awareness of cow numbers and feedyard placements. My concern is whether or not our breed is doing enough to separate from dated negative breed stereotypes and capitalize on the need for commercial females regardless of the breed composition. The AICA is a great organization with many wonderful people involved. I believe the only way to impact is involvement. I am a realist. The reality is breed organizations will change. Anyone that doesn’t believe that only needs to ask someone that raises or, more likely raised purebred swine seedstock. There is no doubt generation interval, birthing rate and environmental control comes into the equation. Then again, there are confinement structures in the beef industry now. Hopefully, that kind of drastic change is decades away for breed associations. But the mistake would be to think that those types of changes are not potentially ahead. Let’s be proactive.

Jerry Vaughan • Vaughan Family Ranch

I have been married to my wife Sarah for 32 years. We have 5 children Andrew (deceased), Corey, Jared, Aaron and Briana. I am a second generation Charolais breeder, raising purebred cattle for 38 years. I have spent 28 years in the Aerospace industry in various Engineering and Executive leadership positions. I left that industry two years ago to dedicate my full time to our Family Ranch operation. In addition to cattle and hay, we raise wheat, grain sorghum, corn and soybeans for cash crop and feed inputs. We are also advocates for agriculture locally and host school children at our ranch to help educate them about farming and ranching activities, issues and our general way of life.

O C T O B E R 2014

We have shown cattle successfully at the local, regional and National level, culminating with a National Grand Champion bull title and a Reserve National Grand Champion Female title. We are members of our State Association and have been state fair trophy sponsors as well as the Junior National Show sponsor. I have been a multiple term officer in our State Association, as well as have national experience from previously serving on the AICA Board of Directors for two terms. The cattle industry in America has seen many changes over the last several years. We are currently in a good part of the cycle as herds that faced liquidation due to draught are rebuilding. Cattle numbers on feed and slaughter numbers are low. Low feed inputs are helping feeders see profitability and prices are being bid up for grass and feeder cattle. Thankfully, consumer demand remains steady in light of record high retail prices, and cheaper alternate protein choices. Purebred bull sale averages are up, and the Charolais cattle have seen good price increases as well, going to prove the strength of our great breed of cattle. However, some think the bubble is about to burst. We need to be aware of threats to our business success. We have seen similar cycles in the past, and some aspects will likely repeat. We do need to anticipate how society in general is changing their opinion on the food supply system. Consumer activism may have a greater impact on how we individually, and as an industry continue to do business in the future. We need to be advocates for our way of life, and our breed of cattle. Our Association is designed to promote our Charolais breed and support our breeders. We do need to continue to evaluate the use of existing and emerging technology to keep and grow our breed acceptance in the cattle industry in the face of emerging obstacles. If elected as your Director, I would work to help establish strategies and tactics to keep our breed acceptance strong in the future.

Area 6 Bradley Bracewell • Bracewell Cattle

Bradley Bracewell has been a Charolais Cattleman and AICA member since 1993. From 2001-2011 he managed the highly successful Lehman Charolais ranch, which included seedstock production, show heifer sales, and most importantly bull marketing. In 2011 Bradley became a full time Charolais cattle rancher for his own brand, Bracewell Cattle, and using the same principles and integrity he applied in his early ranching years, has grown Bracewell Cattle into a successful entity which holds and promotes their own annual bull sale, maintains seasonal seedstock sales, and offers a handful of show heifer prospects. Bradley operates his ranch in Tioga, Texas and is blessed to have a wonderful family. Wife, Laci and children, Ryli (8) and Brody (5), all support and have a role in their family ranching business. Bradley is an avid Charolais promoter and is excited about the future of the breed. He has been involved with the Charolais Association of Texas over the last 10 years, serving as President for several years. In 2010 Bradley began serving on the Breed Improvement Committee for the AICA and has been on the Affiliate committee and is currently Vice-chair of the Activities Committee. Earlier this year he was elected to serve as the Area 6 director for the remainder of the 2014 term. It is his sincere hope that he can continue his leadership role within the AICA and in doing so continue to represent and serve the Charolais breed which has been a mainstay in his life for over 20 years. Bradley will commit himself to represent Area 6 with integrity, insight, and character and would greatly appreciate your consideration to do so.

Derry Wright • WC Charolais

Willard Abbott • Abbott Charolais

Born and raised in Fredericktown, MO. I graduated high school, then entered Flat River Junior College, now Mineral Area College and received my Associates Degree in Business Administration. I spent twenty years as CEO of three hospitals, two in Missouri and one in Arkansas. I worked another fifteen years in Missouri as a real estate broker. I have five children, all living in Southeast Missouri. I have been a widower for more than ten years. I am in good health and work with my cattle everyday. I have been a member of A.I.C.A. for approximately twenty years. Been a member of the MCBA Board Two other AICA members and myself started a consignment sale, The New Millennium Sale and it was in business for more than ten years. I have had cattle since 1968. I bought my first Charolais bull in 1969. Today, I have approximately 100 cows, all are registered Charolais. I sell my cattle at private treaty and consignment sales. I would like to see many changes in the association. I would like for someone from AICA to contact each member at least one time per year. In twenty years, I have been contacted about three or four times and most of these were to try to sell me something. We should spend more time and money promoting our breed. We have a very good product and we just need to promote it better. There should be Charolais ads in all livestock auctions and vet school programs. The association should have a program for all large animal vets and livestock specialists. We need to concentrate on getting our information out in front of the public, to the people who own cattle.

Mike Schumacher • MBS Charolais

I was born and raised in Pike County, Missouri and graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1969. In 1971, I graduated from Crowder College with an Associate’s Degree in Agricultural Business and later served in the Missouri Army National Guard. My wife Lois and I were married in 1975 and now have two grown children. Our daughter Meredith is a Certified Public Accountant in Fort Collins, Colorado, and our son Brian is the Vice President and Manager of our agricultural based business, Feeders Grain. I farmed full-time until 1996 and then purchased Feeders Grain. Our Charolais cattle operation began in 1981 with the purchase of a Charolais bull. In 1989 we began to build our purebred herd. The main focus of our cattle operation is selling commercial bulls and building strong cow families. Locally, I have served 3 terms as Northeast Missouri Cattleman’s President and I am active in the Pike-Lincoln Cattleman’s Association. I participate annually in the Missouri University Extension Show-Me-Select Bull Test and Heifer Program. I served as Vice President of the Missouri Charolais Association and on the Board of Directors for 3 terms. I have also served on various Missouri Charolais Association committees and currently serve on the AICA Advertising and Marketing Committee With my professional and cattle background, I feel I would be an asset to the American-International Charolais Association Board of Directors. I believe in building on the current success of the Charolais Breed and AICA with a large focus on what the Charolais Breed can contribute to the entire Beef Cattle industry as a whole.

I am a 4th generation rancher/farmer from Western Missouri. 100% of my business is agriculture. I own and operate a row crop operation, retail feed and seed business. Furthermore, I own WC Charolais with my wife, Mary, and cattle partners Chris and Kelsi Peuster. We run 300 head of purebred cows in addition to our ET program. My family’s love and appreciation for Charolais cattle has deep roots. My grandfather, Marion Wright, started his Charolais herd in 1959. I grew up around the great white breed. Previously or currently serve on the AICA Commercial Committee, Breed Improvement Committee, Affiliate Committee and National Sale Committee. Other activities: Missouri Charolais Association Board of Directors and Past President. Missouri State Fair building expansion committee; Sponsor local 4-H and FFA livestock events that focus on Charolais Cattle; Hosted the MCBA Field Day in 2014. In addition, I have established an annual Bull Sale 2nd Saturday of March, and Female Sale the 1st Saturday of December. As a Director, I would plan to attend all meetings and represent my peers from Area 8. I want to keep our members informed of upcoming Charolais business. In addition I would make myself available to visit with you regarding questions or items you feel need to be addressed. As your representative I will be your voice. It is time for the Charolais breed to step to the forefront of the beef industry. I believe we can do this with continued education of the commercial producer. The best kept secret in the cattle business is “Charolais influenced feeder cattle”. I want to be part of the team that moves our breed forward. I want to be your representative!

Area 10 Robb Creasey • Creasey Charolais

My wife (Susan) and I have four daughters, Payton 18, Alex 16, Riley 11, and Drew 7. We are the 5th generation to reside and are actively involved in our family farm. Our operation consist of raising corn and soybeans along with owning and operating a 5,000 head wean to finish hog confinement . Susan is part of the faculty team at Western Illinois University and teaches in the Fashion Merchandising department. I work for 1st Farm Credit Services as an Agricultural Loan Officer out of our Macomb, Illinois branch. One of our most favorite family interests is our small Charolais cow herd. I purchased my first Charolais heifer in 1976 from my uncle’s feed lot and have enjoyed the breed ever since. During my youthful years I enjoyed building, developing and showing my Charolais herd which has carried onto my children as they have been active in our cattle operation. Our children have participated in the last 7 Junior National shows and have gained a lot of knowledge, network, and good times while doing so. I have been active in our Local and Regional areas promoting beef and more specifically the Charolais breed. I am currently the Vice President of our State of Illinois Charolais Association. Through my Farm Credit position and involvement in our cattle operation I have participated or sponsored several activities that have promoted Agriculture and Beef. We have become very involved in our Illinois Junior Charolais Association helping with the preparation of the Junior National show and Illinois State Fair.

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

O C T O B E R 2 0 1 4   29


Board of Director Nominees I believe this is a very exciting and challenging times in the cattle industry and more specifically the Charolais breed. I feel it is very important to not get complacent when things are good and continue to look for ways to make improvements. Decisions need to be made that are sound for the breed and will provide longevity to the industry. As our government struggles with its own budget, as a director it is essential that the budget is maintained in a sound and efficient manner. I believe it is important that the board continue to do what it needs to do to cultivate the youth and provide opportunities and excitement within the Charolais breed.

Area 12 Jimmy Ray Parish • Clear Water Cattle

I grew up on a small seedstock operation in North Georgia and was very active in FFA and 4-H showing cattle on a local, regional and national level. I attended Abraham Baldwin Agriculture Collage (ABAC) where I served as Sophomore class president and was instrumental in starting the ABAC steer and heifer show. I then earned a BS in Animal Science from The University of Georgia and a MS in Agronomy from Mississippi State University. Currently I am employed by Central Garden Distribution/Pennington Seed, Inc. as a Territory Manager serving Mississippi and West Tennessee. I am married to Jane Parish and we have two wonderful children, Beau and Haley. Clear Water Cattle is located in West Point, MS and was started after Jane and I moved to Mississippi in 2003. Our Charolais herd started with a few females we purchased from Pate Charolais and from there grew to consist of 300+ purebred females. Over the years we have redirected our cattle business and currently have 35 purebred females and 25 recipient females that support our aggressive embryo program. Through this process I understand the needs and challenges of both the large and small Charolais breeder. Our breeding program has been centered around developing Charolais cattle that are functional with balanced EPDs, carcass merit, performance, and backed by the best cow families in the business. We have been using Whole Herd Reporting (WHR) ever since AICA introduced it and I believe that WHR is one of the most important programs that a Charolais breeder can participate in. We have been ultrasounding our cattle for 10 years and this data has allowed us to work closely with our commercial bull customers to ensure that our genetics are meeting their needs on the rail. Over the years I have served on numerous boards and committees with different originations. Currently I am serving as President of the Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association (MBCIA) and have been on the board of directors for 6 years representing the Charolais bred. Also I am serving as Vice President of the Mississippi Charolais Association, where we host an annual Charolais sale, The Pride of Dixie Sale. We have participated with numerous state association sales across the southeast and have sold cattle in the National Sale. As a director, I will value your input and opinion as an Association member, always putting first and foremost the needs of the Charolais breed and its members. I will support any actions that will add value to Charolais cattle and not take away; pursue and protect the investment in the breed’s most special asset, Charolais youth; support performance programs; further advance the importance of Charolais bulls in commercial programs; and continue to be a strong proponent for the betterment and expansion of the 50k genomic program. I believe it is the responsibility of a director to see that our Association continues to remain financially strong and, at the same time, be aware of the needs and demands of the Association membership. It would be an honor to serve on the board of directors of AICA representing Area 12.

O C T O B E R 2014

Area 14 Dotty Macy • Macy Meadows

My beginning takes me back to a farm family in Street, Maryland. My parents raised four children on a ninety-six acre dairy farm. 4-H was a very significant part of my young life. It was extremely challenging to get my father to invest $65 in a weaned steer calf for a project. “Cubby” and I walked a lot that summer, and we did okay at four shows. Winning his weight class at the Eastern National was a huge moment for this ten year old. But there were to be no more steer projects back to baking cakes for the county fair. I truly believe because I wasn’t allowed another steer project, the seed was planted: “I will show you. Someday I will have my own cattle.” After high school I graduated from Western Maryland College and later earned a Graduate Degree from Central Michigan. Between the two degrees, I sowed a few “wild oats” as a hostess for Alaska Airlines. Reality came along and continued for forty-two years with teaching posts in Alaska, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Florida, Azores, Portugal, Ankara, Turkey, and Misawa, Japan. Along for most of the journey was my husband Frank (now deceased) and our four children. AND then there came the night train ride through France. From that train window as daylight was dawning, I saw magnificent, huge, white cattle in lush meadows. I did not know the breed, but I declared to find out and maybe get a few when I retired. The rest is out there….I have retired, and I do have a herd of Charolais that have brought much satisfaction along with daily challenges these past ten years. Along the way Macy Meadows has been the recipient of the Seedstock and Environmental Awards for the AICA. If you know me, you understand that if I try something, I will give it my all. I base my opinions on experience, and I ask a lot of questions. Going on Charolais tours and attending meetings at the national level have afforded many positive experiences. My knowledge base about my chosen breed and cattle practices by others increases at every encounter. Farm visits are one of my favorite things to do. My first involvement with a Charolais group was the Junior National that was sponsored by the Colonial Association and held in Maryland. That was a busy time and afforded the opportunity to meet Juniors and their families for the first time. Keeping those friendships has been important and their decision to dedicate this year’s Junior National to me will be a cherished memory. Through the years I have participated in different ways as an active member of the Colonial Charolais: organizing silent auctions to benefit the Juniors, soliciting items for auctions, donating a heifer, buying raffle tickets, and providing materials for a static display at the Maryland State Fair arranged by a junior to promote the breed. Wanting to participate at the national level I have represented Area 14 on committees: Junior Counsel. Activities, and Breed Improvement. Serving entails two trips a year to the meetings in Kansas City at my expense to be a voice for Area 14 in the discussions. I was asked by the Breed Improvement Chairman to organize a Seed Stock Tour in the East. That I did with the help of Colonial Breeders. A beef tour in Australia, three World Congress Tours, and Seedstock Tours in the US have broadened my knowledge of the Charolais breed. If I become an AICA area director, I would advocate several issues that I believe are important. First, as the representative of the membership in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, I would always keep in mind that AICA members who have small herds and who do not have ready access to substantial numbers of commercial cattlemen might have different needs than members in other areas. I would advocate programs that would improve the demand for

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


Board of Director Nominees Charolais bulls in the area. Examples of programs for more active AICA support might include arrangement of special Charolais cross feeder calf sales or even development of a retained ownership program. Second, I marvel at how successful the AICA performance program has been at improving the breed in terms of easily measured performance and carcass traits. But I think there is some danger that other traits can be ignored, including fertility and soundness traits. If I become a director, I will advocate for the consideration of additional data collection and analysis so that an EPD for calving interval and longevity might be developed. I would also be interested in consideration of programs that might evaluate animal traits such as feet and legs and udder quality. Concluding these comments, I would like to thank you for your support. Should you elect me, I will go forward representing Area 14 with that “Dotty Macy attitude of getting things done in a timely manner” You will be hearing from me often as work together for our chosen Charolais breed.

Hello my name is Casey Bradshaw and I’m a senior at Canyon

Ridge High School in Twin Falls, Idaho. My family has had Charolais cattle for about 20 years. My dad originally sought interest in the breed because my grandpa was in need of Charolais bulls for his Hereford Angus cow-calf operation. If it wasn’t for our good family friends, Harvey and Carole Coffman, we probably wouldn’t have Charolais cattle today. Through the years, my sister and I have raised and showed Angus, Charolais and Simmental but our favorite breed is always going to be Charolais. There’s just something about a pasture full of white cattle. I look forward to traveling with the Junior Board, seeing cattle from different parts of the country and learning what we need to do to keep improving the breed and staying competitive within the beef industry. It’s an absolute honor to be on the AIJCA Board of Directors and I can’t wait to get started this fall.

Q: What are your hobbies and interests? A: I really enjoy school. I have played varsity golf all four

years of high school and I like competing in various speech contests and debate events in the winter. I spent a few weeks in Kansas and Missouri this summer attending a livestock judging camp at Kansas State University. The judging camp opened my eyes to the many possible opportunities in the Midwest. I am excited to start visiting colleges in Kansas, Michigan and Wyoming this fall. I plan on majoring in civil engineering or Animal Science with interest in cattle reproduction and to be part of a collegiate livestock judging team.

Directors By Area

leaders and to promote agriculture but I think it’s time to learn more about our breed and the direction it’s heading.

Q: What attracts you to the Charolais breed? A: I find Charolais cattle to be one of the most unique

cattle breeds because of how versatile they are and of course their eye appealing white color. In all honesty though, it’s the Charolais people, my sister and I enjoyed showing Charolais the most because of the breeders and staff. It’s an Association with a family sense and a good reputation.

Q: What is your favorite junior national contest? A: My favorite junior national contest is impromptu

speech because it’s the one contest with the least amount of preparation time. It’s a personal thrill to me to see what kind of speech I can put together in a few minutes. I love the impromptu challenge and the suspense it creates. I really look forward to writing topics for the contest.

Q:

What do you look forward to the most about the national show in Kansas City this year?

A:

I cannot wait to attend the national show in Kansas City because it’s going to be my first time at the American Royal. I am ready to roll my sleeves up and help the AICA staff put on a great event. My sister took me to Oklahoma Joe’s this summer and I hope to sneak away and get some good Kansas City barbeque beef ribs.

Q: What accomplishments are you most proud of? A: I am most proud of becoming an AIJCA Board Director. I Q: What was your favorite Halloween costume?

have grown up watching my sister Christy and “brother” Kade Beck on the Junior Board and I hope to learn and be just as successful. My first Junior National was in Wichita Falls, Texas and the “blue jacket” really made an impression on me! There is always a great group representing our breed and it’s been my junior national goal to be a “blue jacket.”

Q: What do you want to achieve as a board member of

the AIJCA?

A: As a board director I want to bring more educational and breed improvement activities to the junior national. I think it’s important to utilize the week and pull our heads together. We are the future of the breed and I wish we had more talks specifically about Charolais, how we fit into the beef industry and what technology and research is out there to make our cattle better at home. We have learned a lot about how to be

O C T O B E R 2014

My favorite Halloween costume as kid would have to be when I was in 6th grade and I wanted to be King Kong. So my mom and I found a full body life like “monkey suit” at our local costume store. I think I have scared more people with this costume because of how real it looks. I loved sneaking up on my sister’s friends in high school and making them scream! The “monkey suit” has acquired the name of Gordon over the years, not sure where the name came from but he is a character that makes an appearance a few times every year in my family. Gordon, the “monkey suit,” has also traveled to junior nationals with us because he works great as an Angus bull impersonator with all of his black hair.

There will be a lot of breeder’s wanting to take a look at this power herd sire in Kansas City. This is a first time consignment from the Sturgess family in the National Sale and they waited until they had the goods. They told me, “Put simply, he’s the best we have raised and would love to share him.” This bull caught the attention of Jerry & Michael Sturgess since he was a baby calf and has continued to shine as he aged. If you value traits like volume, thickness, structural correctness and soundness, then you should take a serious look at this exciting herd sire. Sired by the great Ledger, he also exhibits the ease of flesh, depth of rib and flank and the superior carcass traits of his sire. Maternally, he is out of the most dynamic Charolais female ever born on the ranch. Just study her picture with excellent udder quality and more milk than the numbers suggest. She will move into the embryo program after she calves to LT Blue Value this coming year. Want another added plus; this big puppy-dog disposition herd bull, never had a halter on him until he was twenty months old when Jason Hankins received him in August 2014! He stands out on all four corners, he has the pedigree, the data, the disposition and outstanding Sturgess family standing behind and beside him! Selling 2/3 interest and full possession.

Calving ease in a powerful package! The hunt for an outcross calving ease sire stops here. With an actual birth weight of 78 lbs. and EPDs in the top 2% for CE, 3% for MCE and in the top 15% for BW, this big-ended, powerhouse can be used on first calf heifers with confidence. His sire WR Wrangler W601, is an AICA Trait Leader for Calving Ease. This extra gentle herd sire prospect has the potential to headline many breeding programs. Bojangles started his show career the right way by winning his class and division at the Iowa State Fair in August. Big-bodied, easy fleshing, sound and attractive are all correct descriptions for him. His dam is an exciting first-calf-heifer with a perfect udder, good feet and is backed up by Summit’s proven donor, Three Trees Vanna 1801, who has stayed in the Summit E.T. program longer than any cow to move through their herd. Over and over the Rio Bravo daughters and granddaughters are coming to the forefront as consistent producers at Summit Farms and herds across the United States. Summit Farms would like to retain a ¼ semen interest in Bojangles for the opportunity to collect him for in herd use only, but would assist in promoting him and also entertain the option of showing him in the future for the new owners. Selling ¾ interest and full possession.

It is always rewarding to see a mating meet the highest expectations that the breeders had for it, but even more rewarding when it goes above and beyond that expectation! RF Excel is that herd sire prospect and more. He is a bull that is square-hipped, extremely deep-bodied, capacious in his rib shape and when put into motion, he certainly doesn’t disappoint. He comes from a stacked pedigree of breed giants. Every sire in his pedigree has greatly influenced our breed and every dam in his pedigree has been a high-end donor for some of the elite programs in our breed. His sire X-Factor was a former Show Bull of the Year and X-Factor’s dam a past Show Dam of the Year. Excel’s dam, RF Greta 97Z is a full sister to Parker Henley’s RF Greta 96Z, the #6 Show Female of the Year for 2013-14. She sold in the 2012 Ridder Farms Showgirls Sale for $10,000 and the Ridder’s kept the full sister 97Z, dam of this bull to carry on that genetic power line. Greta 96Z was the National Junior Calf Champion in 2013, a division Champion at the AIJCA Jr. National and the Grand Champion Female at the 2013 Missouri State Fair. This pedigree is built for success with Fire Water having been a National Champion Bull, sired many other National Champions and the maternal granddam of this bull, RLL Goin’ Places having been a Reserve National Champion Female. The Ridder’s will reserve the show rights on RF Excel 427 until after the January National Western Stock Show where he will anchor their Pen of Bulls. Selling ½ interest and full possession.

Bar J Charolais has a tremendous track record of producing Champion show cattle, but this lot ties together that success and desire to be on the top. This is your opportunity to flush the dam of the current National Champion Bull to your herd sire for an unforgettable experience. Not only was BJCF Watt the 2014 National Champion Bull in Denver, but he was the 2013-2014 AICA Show Bull of the Year and his dam (this flush donor) was the #2 Show Dam of the Year. Mamie 764 is a soft, smooth, thick, deep-bodied, beautiful individual with built in power along with an excellent udder. Three of her last four calves have gone straight into the Bar J show string. Her dam M6 Ms Mark 9485 was a tremendous donor dam for M6 Ranches and propagated the Mamie cow family with 27 mostly E.T. progeny. More great donor dams dominate the top side of this donor’s pedigree with the dam of LT Wyoming Wind, the dam of Three Trees Wind 0383 and WCR Miss Mac IV 5138, one of Three Trees most powerful donors. This exciting donor calved again this fall and is ready to flush immediately.

There are slot machines that pay out fairly well, some that never pay out and there must be one slot machines that must hit the jackpot every time….and this donor is the one. In four flushes this cow has averaged 38.75 good embryos per flush!!!! They will guarantee you at least 15 embryos with this flush, but be ready to freeze more than that. Considered by many to be one of the best Cigar daughters walking, this donor’s first two daughters have sold for an average of $10,475! The first was BC Ms Reality X02 Tw Pld that was voted as the Best Consignment at the very first President & Reality Sale. The second daughter HF D&D Ms Reality Z4241 topped the open heifers during the Hudspeth “The Gathering Sale” selling to Crosstimber Cattle Co., Ed Brunson, in Texas. Take a look at her udder in the picture! Before producing those two outstanding heifers, this awesome donor had produced four bull calves born; 9-1-06, 10-15-07, 11-9-08 and 11-1-09 all with an average adjusted weaning weight of 726 lbs. The guesswork is done here, flush her to your exciting herd sire and propagate these genetics. She is open ready to flush immediately following this sale.

The Proof, the Progeny & their Progeny! Without doubt, a great opportunity to flush one of the “cash cows” of our breed. Ms Primetime 4307 has been one of the great producers of successful show heifers and granddaughters. The first daughter that put her on the map was CCC Ellie Mae 301 P, after her successful show career she produced Big Creek CCC Mable 301Y that sold for a big dollar to Jeht Statler in Nebraska, and went on to win many big shows. CCC Ellie Mae then produced three E.T.’s in 2013 that sold for $7,750, $8,000 and $14,200 and we will be hearing more about their show records soon. #4307 also produced CCC Gabrielle 902 that sold to JVS Charolais in Louisiana and then Crutcher Honey Boo Boo 134Z that had an amazing string of show wins in 2013 and 2014. J & A also had a Honey Boo Boo that was successful. Also many bull progeny have found homes with numerous purebred breeders. #4307 has 21 progeny registered at AICA. The proof of her value just keeps coming on. JH Ms Primetime 4307 is due to calve the first of March and will be ready to flush about May 1st. She has averaged nine embryos per flush.

CHOICE OF HERD

I can only tell you that “exciting� is the word that comes to mind when considering going into this herd to select the very best female you can find! This program continues to make huge strides in producing functional, powerful, breed leading females and what an opportunity for a new or established breeder to go into this herd and select just one. There are over 300 head of females to sort through, so bring your lunch. You may select from ten donors that they have flushed, over 100 spring calving females, over 90 fall cow/calf pairs and the calf goes with the cow! And never forget the 31 fall yearling open and 37 spring 2014 show heifer prospects, there have been some great ones come out of these great ones. This herd is anchored by one of the greatest Duke 914 donors of all times-VCR Miss Duchess 433 and also the fact that the great Baldridge Sweetheart 7M and 444 finally got their due respect while residing at M & M Charolais! Most of these females will be calving or bred to the following sires when you go to select your next donor; Ledger, Watt, Royce, Benelli, New Standard, Big Ben and Long Distance!

The Eaton family will allow two (2) great mature cows to be selected from over 1,500 females they have enrolled in the AICA Whole Herds Rewards program. So that means, there are over 1,500 active mature cows to select from, no pedigree estimate females are included. This choice of the herd has been actively bid on each and every year that the Eaton’s have offered this choice of the herd. We will offer the first “choice of the herd” and then one more “choice of the herd” or the first winning bidder may double the bid and sweep the ring. Just think of it, your choice from more than 1,500 brood cows! What an opportunity! More than 632 cows rank in the top 25% of the breed for BW EPD, 891 cows rank in the top 25% for Milk EPD, 692 females rank in the top 25% for MEC EPD and 490 females rank in the top 25% for TM EPD. 94 Eaton sires are listed in the Spring 2014 AICA Sire Summary with Trait Leaders for 8 Traits. These are awesome numbers to work with, but you need to go out into the vast pastures and find those eye-appealing brood cows, with outstanding production records and those well-known ETN brands on their sides to select your next donor dam. These selections will take some time, some effort, some patience, but never forget the opportunity for greatness that will come with one or two of these tremendous brood cows.

Small but Mighty….Generations of Quality…..Time Tested Genetics! This herd has been around forever, since 1958 and it is small in size, but mighty in quality and genetic power. David Hobbs can’t quit talking about the opportunity for someone to come into this herd and take out a “golden goose.” WCR Sir Mac 809 was and still is today a power maternal sire. You won’t find his name in many current pedigrees, but if you dig back a ways you’ll see it pop up in some of the most successful cow families. Many of the females in this herd go back to a son of Mac 809 that Dan Corman purchased from Peterson Farms out of a JWK Duke 914 dam. You will like what you see from this bloodline. There are 19 fall calving cows to select from with calves at side by LT Long Distance, Cooley Royce, Grid Maker and Bluegrass. There are 23 females due to calve in the spring bred to LT Ledger, Long Distance, LT Easy Pro and Royce. In addition to those females there are 5 bred heifers and 7 open heifers to select from. This is a closely culled and productive set of females that will make money. This selection is asked to be made by December 31, 2014. Here are just a few possibilities to select from:

CHOICE OF HERD

In 2000 Oakwater Ranch began developing their cow herd from select individuals from top programs across the U.S., in 2002 with grander goals in mind, they expanded their operation with a large purchase of females from the Eaton herd and acquired the entire Rocking Arrow Ranch cow herd at Valentine, Nebraska to complete their foundation herd. To complement the blending of all these cattle they went on an extensive search for herd sires which provided them with a herd sire battery from the elite programs of Wienk, Cobb, Hoodoo, Dubas, Raile and Lindskov-Thiel. Since that time, Oakwater Ranch has implemented an extensive trait and genetic based program while remaining a closed herd, with its entire focus on providing a superior product designed to fit the needs of the commercial bull buyer! These traits are calving ease, performance, disposition, structure, maternal and carcass traits. They strive to keep their customers profitable. So how successful have they been in obtaining their goals? The answer is from the data this operation has collected from their annual bull sale of approximately 90 head of yearling bulls, which ranks in the top tier of sales held each year. When comparing a summary of the data, Oakwater has reduced the birth weight of their bulls by 9.3%, while maintaining their weaning and yearling weights above breed average. There has been a significant increase in Ribeye Area and a 23% increase in intramuscular fat. When you travel to Mansfield to evaluate the cowherd you will find a very functional group of cows that, although not pampered, are productive, hard-working brood matrons that will add value to any cow herd and do it on the forage that the ranch provides. There will be approximately 300 spring calving cows, 45 bred heifers and 100 spring 2014 heifer calves to select from. Oakwater Ranch will retain one successful flush on the selected female and if she has a bull calf in the spring of 2015, a 1/3 semen interest in that bull. Selection must be made by December 31, 2014. Pictured are just some of the brood cows in that herd.

CHOICE OF 2014 HEIFER REPLACEMENTS

From the heart of the herd! Producing front-end females has always been LindskovThiel’s key motivation. At this year’s National Charolais Sale, you the buyer will have the opportunity to select the #1 heifer from their 2014 replacement group…nothing is being held back! This selection represents 34 years of breeding power. The winning bidder may select from approximately 80 heifer calves that are being retained by Lindskov-Thiel Ranch to be the future of their herd. Included in this pick will be daughters of some of the breed’s most noted sires-LT Ledger, LT Long Distance, LT Sundance, LT Silver Distance, LT Stagecoach and LT Rushmore. The last “choice of the heifers” from the LT herd was LT Miss Brenda 0034, who sold in the 2010 National Sale for $16,000 to Wright Charolais. Her second calf went on to be the high-seller in their 2014 sale at $30,000. They will provide access to the data and their foundation cow families like the Brendas, Astas, Ballerinas, Carols, 7N’s and Praise. For over three decades, these cow families have anchored their maternal power herd and their breed leading bull sale. Take a trip to western South Dakota and anchor your herd with a pick from their best! Lindskov-Thiel Ranch requests that this selection be completed by December 15, 2014.

Selling one-half interest and the option to double the bid and take 100%! Drew Foglesong shocked the breed when he purchased the entire offering of over 700 Southern Cattle Company females that were going on the auction block in August 2014! He now wishes to share one of these awesome donors with the breed. Marion 0429 is quickly becoming “one of the great ones” in the breed, and just look at this picture! Her EPD’s continue to climb as proof of her power becomes evident. She had her first natural born calf near her second birthday on April 2, 2012 and she went immediately into transplant. Her first set of E.T.’s are impressive! Her first set of sons sired by three different bulls had an average adjusted 205 day weight of 729.7 lbs., with not a one under 700 lbs! Her sire is the breed leading M6 Grid Maker 104 who continues to sire outstanding progeny throughout the nation. Her dam is the great DA Ms Marion 328 who sold in the 2007 National Sale in Louisville with her heifer calf for $16,000. #328 is also a full sister to the outstanding DA Passport 502! You won’t find many pedigrees stacked up like this one. Marion 0429 is due in December to WC Capital Gain 2220, the $14,000 one-half interest LT Ledger son out of JWK Clarice J139 that Southern Cattle Co. selected out of the Wright Charolais Bull Sale in 2013. She will remain at home during this sale and will be ready to go into embryo production after calving. Opportunity is knocking!

Don’t have the time to wait for an outstanding open heifer to grow up and return you a dividend? Sit down right here and look at this broody LT Ledger daughter that is due to calve in January 2015 to WC Big Ben 9036 P. This heifer is bred in the finest Lindskov-Thiel tradition. Her dam was purchased from Lindskov-Thiel Ranch in fall 2007 as a weaned open heifer and has a great production record. Following is the calving interval of the dam of this bred heifer. She was born in March 2007 and calved well before her second birthday on 1-3-09, 2-16-10, 1-14-11, 12-9-11 and 12-10-12. Those previous progeny had an average adjusted weaning weight of 656 lbs. and an average adjusted yearling weight of 1,275 lbs Now just look at this Lindskov-Thiel pedigree built from their famous Brenda cow family, but also includes the even more famous dams of LT Bluegrass, LT Silver Yield and LT Ledger, wow. What a set of herd sires represented in this pedigree tabulation; LT Rio Bravo, Montana Silver, LT Silver Yield, LT Assertion, LT Bluegrass and LT Ledger! You can’t go wrong here!

It’s been quite a while since we’ve had a pair of heifers create this much excitement and conversation. The comments have been; “they’re really good”, “which one do you like the best?”, “what a close pair, I don’t know which one I like best”, “where are they selling at, I’ll be there?” So this should be quite interesting! Sired by the breed exciting Cooley Royce only adds to the excitement over these two heifers. He is really putting the right kind out there in the industry. The dam of these great heifers is also stirring the pot. At twelve years of age, she demanded a $11,250 selling price to Brian Ingram and Derry Wright during the EJ Shepherd Dispersal in 2012. Her heifer progeny at that sale were some of the most sought after, averaging $3,300 on seven daughters We’ll bring them in the ring together and sell choice and then sell the other, unless some astute buyer makes the smart move and ties them together.

She possesses the maternal elegance of her dam and the power and shape of her sire. WDZ CC Katelyn 4012 is a power show prospect with the genetic merit to be a donor female in the future. Her dam CC Katelyn 8107 gathered numerous banners through her Lot 20 show career, including the National Western Stock Show Junior Show Grand Champion, two AIJCA Jr. National Division Championships and the Minnesota State Fair Supreme Grand award, just to name a few. But more importantly she has went on to produce progeny that have been sought after by cattlemen across the country and have competed in the ring themselves. One son, WDZ CC Kade was the 2012 AIJCA Jr. National Grand Champion Bull and went on to be the Breeders Classic Grand Champion that fall. The T07K cow family anchors this pedigree of proven genetic value. The sire of this heifer, Diablo brings another Denver champion into the CC Katelyn 8107 Pld mix and his progeny too have been a force in the ring, both show ring and sale ring, in recent months. He is anchored by another maternal power cow CML Diablo 2X family with CML Wilma as his dam, also the dam of the National Reserve Champion CML Encore. This is a genuine opportunity to purchase a true contender in the show ring with awesome potential to be Presented by Zehnder Cattle, Chad Zehnder, Stanchfield, Minnesota & a profit generating matron in the future.

This young Ledger daughter has been a favorite around the Sparks farm since day one. She headed to the Sparks show barn early and comes to Kansas City in a competitive spirit. She is really pretty in her make-up and combines both showring appeal and maternal strength to make a really nice brood cow Lot 21 when her show days are over. Her maternal sister sired by LT Bridger 9191 left the Ten Grand Heifer Sale in Kansas City last year for $10,000! There is some power in this cow family. Sired by the $105,000 LT Ledger 0332, makes her one to look at no matter what, but you will like her even better when you lay eyes upon her. We could talk about Ledger’s genetic power pedigree, but you’ve heard it all before. Her dam is the same Ivory Ribbons N Lace that James purchased as an open heifer during a Northern Exposure Sale in Iowa, sired by the National Champion Northern Wind and she went on to win many jackpots in SCF Soap Suds 136 Missouri. She put that $10,000 heifer on the ground and now this National Sale heifer. This is quite a stacked up pedigree of success and heritage, count your blessings when JRL Ivory Ribbons N Lace 1106 you load her onto your trailer heading out of Kansas City!

Something special is before you now! She has caused quite a stir by everyone whom laid eyes on her and one successful flush will be retained. This will be the first LT Blue Mountain 1041 daughter to walk across the sale ring for anybody. Lot 22 Blue Mountain topped the 2012 Lindskov-Thiel Bull Sale when he commanded $75,000 selling to Wright Charolais, Southern Cattle Company, Eaton Charolais and Hebbert Charolais. His overpowering ratios of 122 for both weaning and yearling weights drove the excitement. His sons and daughters are overpowering for performance, yet with tremendous eye-appeal.

She is a full sister to the WC CCC Full Metal Jacket in which a 1/3 interest sold in the 2012 Wright Bull Sale for $15,000 after he was selected the 2011 Royal Breeders Classic Grand Champion and a month later the National Junior Bull Calf Champion Baldridge Sweetheart 7M in Louisville. Her dam 7M continues to set the bar higher and higher for potent genetic power.

This “luscious” yearling heifer is not only a show heifer, just coming off her Grand Champion victory at the Maryland State Fair with over 40 head showing, but carries a pedigree jam packed full of Charolais success and consistency! She is a daughter of WDZ Firemaker, the son of Grid Maker and one of the most popular sires of this century and who Lot 24 is Firemaker’s dam, why none other than the National Champion, $60,000 “Zsa Zsa” which makes him a maternal brother to Fire Water. The dam of this heifer is WDZ Luscious Lady 4008, one of LT Unlimited Ease’s stoutest daughters ever and a very successful show heifer herself. She won either Grand or Reserve at New York, Maryland, Eastern National, Keystone and Louisville. Luscious Lady 4008’s dam is a daughter of Guardian, the Canadian Agribition Supreme Champion and U.S. National Reserve Grand. His maternal sister is the dam of SVY Freedom, the sire of Worldwide, another National Champion. The Magic Doll great granddam of this heifer, was the foundation for the famous Northern Exposure Sale and has made a big impact on several herds in the northern plains, including RMR WDZ Luscious Lady Cohiba, a National Calf Champion and now recognized as a potent source of marbling. She also had an International influence, producing Mezquite Tarkan 35K, Grand Champion at the World Congress in Mexico in 2002. Luscious Lady 4008 has produced 31 registered progeny, among them herd sires for Faraway Cattle Co. in North Carolina, Mountain Meadows in Vermont, Double S in New York and for Rachel Hockenbery in Maryland.

Only after a lot of arm twisting did we convince Rick Hale to let us have this heifer for the National Sale. She is a full sister to SCR Bronco 9026, the bull that Wild Indian Acres and Lindskov-Thiel recently added to their herd sire battery. Bronco topped the 2010 Sonderup Charolais Ranch Bull Sale at $20,000. With three years of progeny data backing up his numbers, Bronco has been siring in-demand sons and daughters. Bronco sons were the high sellers at both the 2012 and 2013 Sonderup Charolais Ranch Annual Bull Sale selling for $8,000 and $14,500. Another son was the high seller and Grand Champion Bull at the 2013 Nebraska Cattleman’s Classic for $6,750. Groups of Bronco weaning age and bred heifers have been sale features the past three years at the Annual Sonderup Fall Female Sale. In 2011 weaning age daughters in that sale, sold for $4,100, $4,250 and $4,250. In 2012, one weaning age daughter sold for $4,600 and in 2012 and 2013 bred heifer daughters sold for $4,100, $4,500, $3,500 and $4,100. This pedigree combination is pretty much an outcross to many of the popular bloodlines in the breed today, so just think what you can do flushing this female to your herd sire.

Proceeds to benefit the American-International Junior Charolais Foundation Raymond Hicks Fund and Missouri Junior Scholarship.

Truly, a unique opportunity to obtain an original painting by noted livestock illustrator, Galen Struve. In 1993, the Missouri Charolais Breeders Association contacted Struve to create a painting to commemorate the 25th National Charolais Show to be held in conjunction with the American Royal Livestock Show. This beautiful work depicts two breeders who worked diligently to build the American Royal Charolais activities, Jerry Litton and Frank Wesson. Also included in the collage are images of Sam 951, the first American Royal Champion Female, the Litton Trophy, the AICA trademark globe along with other notables. The original painting was auctioned before the start of the 15th National Sale with Dick and Jeanne Fanning, Thousand Oaks Charolais, Carthage, Missouri, having the winning bid. This original and prints (only 200) generated over $12,000 for the Charolais Ambassador program. As Dick and Jeanne have retired, they gave back the original painting to benefit Charolais Juniors not only in Missouri but nationwide. The painting is professionally framed and ready to hang in your office or front room.

EFFICIENCY

in the Beef Cattle Industry:

Developing a New Paradigm the potential to be game-changing for the industry. It could provide the information needed to dramatically decrease maintenance costs in the cowherd which, although it varies between animals and environments, is approximately 75% of a cow’s total annual energy requirement (Ferrell and Jenkins 1985). Groundbreaking research from a team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has the potential to solve this problem. A group led by Dr. Ron Lewis is investigating ways to measure forage intake in cows through collection of fecal samples. By developing an assay that detects the unique chemical compositions of the wax on the external surface of plants, the type and amount of forage being eaten can be estimated. If this methodology can be scaled up to collect large numbers of phenotypes, we could gain a tremendous amount of knowledge on cow efficiency that could be utilized to make selection decisions in the future. Feed intake is also a major driver of enteric methane emissions in beef cattle (Johnson and Johnson 1995; Ellis et al. 2007). A standardized length of time and collection method for enteric methane data has yet to be established for beef cattle; however, it is commonly collected through a ventilated head box system that monitors air composition within a closed system. Enteric methane emissions per head have actually steadily increased over time, but the levels of methane production per unit of beef produced has dropped substantially (Capper 2011). The majority of greenhouse gas emissions occurring within the beef production chain are during the pre-harvest period. This byproduct of digestion is basically inefficient feed conversion (Hayes et al. 2013), so selection to decrease these emissions may actually improve feed conversion (Hegarty et al. 2007). While some studies have shown a direct link between increased feed efficiency and decreased methane emissions, other studies have failed to detect this effect, so additional research will be vital to determine the extent of this relationship. Potential routes to decrease emissions through genetic selection have primarily focused on selection for correlated traits or predicted methane emissions estimated using feed intake and diet composition (de Haas et al. 2011). Because these phenotypes will be difficult to collect, a sustained collaborative effort will be necessary to overcome these limitations. While the benefits of improvements in feed efficiency are obvious, there are ongoing efforts to increase efficiency of natural resource usage in the beef industry by tackling other novel traits. A study just initiated at Oklahoma State University is investigating water use efficiency in beef production. The overall aim of the study is to examine water use as it relates to the adaptability of cattle to drought, including increased water temperature, decreased water quality, and limited availability of water and feed resources. While most people don’t typically think of water consumption as an economically important trait in the same manner as feed efficiency, in those areas of the country plagued by water issues (both quality and quantity),

As with all genetic evaluations, there is a consistent need for large numbers of high-quality phenotypes. the ability to select animals that are flexible and adaptable to these environments, but still produce a quality beef product, is important. It’s also vital that we gain understanding of how these environmental challenges affect production traits including feed efficiency, gain, and animal health. This study will utilize genomic technologies such as SNP genotyping and metagenomic sequencing (for this study that will include sequencing of microbial populations in the rumen and digestive tract) and will also develop water and environmental management tools for producers to utilize during drought. As with all genetic evaluations, there is a consistent need for large numbers of high-quality phenotypes. This concept still applies for evaluations including genomic information, so it’s imperative that we plan for the infrastructure and data collection necessary to facilitate these evaluations. Additionally, collecting these data once in a single population will not be sufficient. It will require continued opportunities to collect novel phenotypes and sustained support of research into these traits. This research will require increased cooperation across the entire beef industry to jointly explore improvement in these efficiency traits along with other economically important traits, including disease resistance, which have expensive or difficult phenotype collection. Certainly the traits discussed here are biological efficiencies, and not strictly economic efficiencies, which all cattlemen know are also vitally important. However, if we continue concerted efforts to improve production efficiencies and create selection tools which improve profit potential, cattle producers will continue to have an impressive record of consistent improvement. In this era of public scrutiny, we need to relay these accomplishments to the public, while employing the methods necessary to remain profitable in the years ahead. Continuing to increase beef production efficiency is certainly a promising route to achieving both of these goals.

A Cattle Co-Op There’s success in numbers for one group of Louisiana cattlemen

e

By Katrina Huffstutler

I

t’s a common complaint from producers with smaller cow herds: They just don’t have the cattle numbers to put together the load lots that buyers want. The ones that command a premium price. The ones that allow for loyal repeat customers. But when New Roads, La., cattleman Dean Reed was new to the area, he received an invitation that would forever change the way he marketed his calves — and for that, he’s grateful. “I moved to the area where I live now 20 years ago,” Reed says, “and I had bought a set of cows from my cousin. It took me right next to a gentleman who’s been in the business all of his life and, at that time, had already been selling his calves on video for 10 years.” The veteran producer, John Grezaffi, from nearby Batchelor, La., really took Reed under his wing and asked if he’d like to join him in selling calves with similar genetics online. Since that time, they’ve added Grezaffi’s son-in-law and their veterinarian to the mix. Between them, the group sells about 1,000 calves divided up between July and late September or early October sales. The top common denominator among these four breeders? Charolais bulls. On Reed’s operation, which consists of a little more than 200 mama cows, he’s been a believer in Charolais since the beginning. In fact, for most of the last 20 years, it’s all he’s used on his cow herd.

harolais bulls just sire heavierweaning calves than any other bulls. And until they quit paying me by the pound, that’s what it all boils down to.

“The Charolais bulls just work for me,” he says. “We run predominately all Brahman-cross cows — one-quarter to halfblood Brahman cows. Charolais bulls just sire heavierweaning calves than any other bulls. And until they quit paying me by the pound, that’s what it all boils down to.” He says out of the four operations involved in the pool, the collective cowherd is predominately made of Brahman crosses with a few exceptions and 75 percent or more of the herdsires utilized are Charolais. That means though the calves come from different ranches, they’re similar enough to be from the same place. But that’s not the only way consistency pays for this cooperative effort. “Our buyers know exactly what they are getting,” Reed says. That’s because buyers not only get the calves’ complete vaccination records, but they also know the cow herd’s animal health plan, castration information — pretty much everything that goes on in the four herds and when. “We tell them the whole nine yards,” he says. “Once they’ve done business [with us] and bought our cattle, they know what they’re getting every time. They know they’re going to get healthy, good quality cattle.” That predictability leads to repeat business. “The buyers that have bought our cattle in the past have been very happy and satisfied, and so they want to get them again. It’s what helps us to always get the top-of-the-market price for our calves,” Reed says.

Of course, it goes both ways, he explains. You’ve got to consistently provide a calves that are good enough to keep them coming back. “You’ve got to send a good product,” Reed says. “We take pride in sending quality cattle and we won’t send one that we know there’s something wrong with. We’re looking at it longterm. We’re not interested in a short-term gain by sending them a calf that doesn’t need to go a truck. “That goes a long way, doing the right thing. In the end, it’s going to pay off.” He says in addition to getting good cattle, people like buying direct from the producers because the calves haven’t had the added stress or exposure to illness that comes from moving through an auction market. Reed is quick to encourage other cow-calf producers to set up their own cooperative, but warns it’s not without challenges for most. “It’s not all rosy,” he says. “Anytime you’re dealing with other people, conflict is possible.” He says the most important thing to keep in mind is to set a standard and stick to it if you want to be successful. “Use the same bulls, the same type of cows and follow the same vaccination protocol,” he says. “Be sure to do everything the same and strive to send the best quality cattle to your buyers. In the end, it’ll pay off. “If you send a good quality calf, with good herd health program, the buyers are going to be happy. They’re going to come back and that’s going to demand more for your calves.” Lastly, Reed reminds cattlemen that the days of not vaccinating and not having a plan are long gone. “It costs so much to raise cattle nowadays, you have got to do everything right to get the best price,” he says. “It’s just so costly that if you don’t do it right and you don’t demand that premium price for your calves, you’re not going to stay in the business.”

Dean’s tips for a successful co-op 1. Use like genetics 2. Have a good herd health plan that everyone in the pool sticks to 3. Share all of your calves’ information with the buyers 4. Focus on long-term, not shortterm, success

Our buyers know exactly what they are getting.

CharolaisCross Cattle Make the Cut for Tomorrow’s Consumer By Paige Nelson

After seeing virtually every cattle breed’s performance in the feedyard, James Henderson knew Charolais outperformed them all and created a place for the white hides on his wife’s Angus seedstock operation. 70  

O C T O B E R 2014

“There’s only so much you can do to a chicken,” says James Henderson, partner/ owner in Bradley 3 Ranch Charolais. “We don’t have to do anything to make our product taste good.” With a background in meat processing and a former packing plant manager, Henderson approaches seedstock production with an understanding of consumer activity. “[Consumers] vote with their dollars,” he says. “Fifty-five percent of our product is sold ground; I don’t know that we need to feed everything like it goes to Morton’s.”

James Henderson

Why Charolais? In his feedyard and packing plant experience, Henderson watched the performance of several different breeds of cattle in the feedlot and at the packing plant. That helped he and his wife, Mary Lou Bradley, decide to CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


add seedstock Charolais genetics to the historic 60-year Angus operation, Bradley 3 Ranch, located near Memphis, Texas. “We knew that Charolais-Angus crossed cattle really performed well in the feedyard. They were nice carcass cattle. When you’ve got something that performs well in the feedyard and the packing plant, we knew, from a commercial standpoint, there’s some real opportunity there,” Henderson explains. The first Bradley 3 Ranch Charolais bulls were sold private treaty in 2010. In 2011, Charolais made their debut in the Bradley 3 Ranch bull sale. “We’re believers in hybrid vigor,” he says, “Our Angus herd is known as a maternal herd. If you’re going to use a crossbred program and you have a good maternal cow herd, use something that’s going to make a really nice terminal cross. “From a visual standpoint, a Charolais-cross is an easy animal to pick out. You don’t have to go with DNA or anything else to know what you have,” he adds. Bradley 3 Ranch is a seedstock operation designed for the commercial cattleman and values customer service enough to provide well-adapted cattle to their clientele. “We’re probably somewhat unusual in the seedstock business in that we tend to run our cattle more like a commercial operation,” Henderson points out. “I don’t know how to understand what a commercial guy needs if I don’t put our cattle through the same things he’s going to put them through.” Henderson also recognized that producers in his home state of Texas were the main buyers of Charolais bulls. He figured that some of his Angus customers were probably using Charolais, as well. It is this mentality that solidified the addition of Charolais genetics to the operation. “It just made a lot of sense to us, if we were going to provide a little more customer service, to do it with Charolais.” A further bonus of adding Charolais to the ranch has been the new opportunities. “It’s a new group of people we get to meet, and we get to learn a new set of cattle,” he says. The Charolais Difference After many years in the Angus business, Henderson has noted some significant differences in behavior between the two breeds. “Charolais cattle tend to stay in a herd more than Angus cattle

do; if you find one you’ll find them all,” he says. He adds that the Charolais cattle tend to have a different flight zone than the Angus cattle. “We’re in a pretty heavy predator area. We’ve got lots of coyotes and wild hogs and lots of things that hang around and try to catch a baby calf, so that mothering instinct has to be in those (Charolais) cattle. We’ve really worked on selecting Charolais cows that have that mothering instinct. They can lay down, have a calf, get up and protect it, and nurse it pretty quickly.” When customers ask about calving ease, Henderson says he likes to remind people that his herd started with Charolais embryos in Angus cattle. “Those Angus cows had their calves on their own,” he says. Bradley 3 Ranch keeps terminal cross in mind when they select Charolais bulls. Growth and carcass traits are clearly a priority, but overall soundness, libido and scrotal circumference are selected for, as well. “We expect that they’re going to be able to get cows bred on the first cycle,” Henderson says. Performance Because Bradley 3 Ranch is managed like a commercial operation, only replacement heifers and donor cattle are bred using artificial insemination (AI). Everything else is bred through natural service for 60 days. Then, through DNA testing on progeny, the ranch is able to test the libido of their bulls. Charolais bull customers’ feedback has been really good, says Henderson. “They have been impressed by the performance in the calves.” Henderson describes his customer base as fairly sophisticated— they make good marketing decisions, and look for and appreciate getting accurate data back on their calves. “They understand pretty well that just taking a calf off of a cow and hauling it to the sale barn is probably not the place to get maximum dollars for that calf. Most of them are going to at least background their calves for 45-60 days.” Thanks to his experience in both the feedyard and the packing plant, Henderson adds value for his customers, not only by supplying good genetics, but also through his industry contacts. “We have a lot of contacts in the industry that feed cattle and sell cattle on a grid, so we’ll help them market those cattle. We can

O C T O B E R 2 0 1 4   71


help get them in programs where they get the data back on those cattle,” he adds. Bradley 3 Ranch is proud of their Charolais cow herd and is expanding every year. “We’ll probably try to target 25-50 Charolais bulls every year to go along with our Angus offering,” says Henderson. A strong selling point for the ranch is the rough terrain the cattle graze. “We go from pretty sandy soil on the south side, to rocky, steep, really brushy terrain on the north side of the ranch. Our water’s not very good and this year, temperatures have ranged from 0°F to 105°F. The cattle have to cover some country to forage,” explains Henderson. “We’ve sold cattle to Florida and clear to Idaho. If they can handle our country, they can handle just about anything.” It is Henderson’s hope that cattle purchased from Bradley 3 Ranch will perform for the future consumer. Calves are born in the fall, so breeding decisions for the next crop will be made within the next two months. Henderson says, “We try to think out front all the time.” He explains that the bull calves born next fall will be in the 2017 bull sale. The earliest progeny from those bulls won’t be consumed until 2019 and female calves born next fall will still have offspring going to market in 2029-2030. “It’s a pretty awesome responsibility to try to predict what the market’s going to look like in 2030,” he says. “We’re really trying to look way out in the future to see what the demands will be.”

Beef Industry Outlook “The last four years have been really, really tough,” Henderson remarks, but adds “I don’t know that I’ve ever been more optimistic than I am right now about where we’re headed. We’re in prices that no one could have dreamed of, and our demand is hanging in there awfully good. I think that bodes really well for our industry.” Due to demands on the beef industry from competing industries (government, recreation, crops, oil, mining and timber) Henderson thinks good prices will continue and beef price fluctuation will not be as drastic as it has been in the past. Despite his optimism, he admits the industry needs to make some changes. “I think as cattle get bigger and bigger, trying to sell whole steaks and expecting people who are not proficient in cooking to have a good eating experience, is wrong. I think we need to change how we’re doing some cuts, just to get a better eating experience for consumers,” he says. Good prices, a low supply and a high demand are great, but Henderson says, “Politics can mess up a lot of things, government interference and regulation worry me more than anything.” Still there’s power in the product and Henderson notes, “But, gosh, people love the taste of beef, and that’s the advantage we have over all the other proteins.”

“It’s a pretty awesome responsibility to try to predict what the market’s going to look like in 2030,” he says. “We’re really trying to look way out in the future to see what the demands will be.”

elcome to Vedvei Charolais Ranch’s third “Dakota Standard” female sale. We have Jensen Charolais as a guest consignor. For more than 28 years we have focused our breeding program around a balance of economically relevant traits, including moderate birth weights, high growth potential, adequate milk, and fertility. Many of our herd sires were in the National Sire Evaluation Program and today we continue in the Weight Trait project with MARC and the National Beef Cattle Consortium. The cattle will all be penned on site sale day; however, the auction will be presented on video by DVAuctions. Scott, DJ, Jerod and I have put together a great set of females for this sale. We are offering many of the same genetics you have become accustomed to in the past along with some of our newer genetics. These cattle all have a very balanced set of EPDs and we feel they will continue to do a good job for each of you. We will offer an outstanding group of cow/calf splits, a small group of fall calving cows that will calve by sale day, and some of our very best bred heifers. Several of these females would be cows we would consider using as donor cows and several of the calves could be shown. All the spring calving females will be pregnancy tested prior to the sale. Scott, DJ, Jerod and I along with our families look forward to answering any questions you may have prior to the sale or just visiting with you on sale day. We would like to thank each of you for considering our genetics in your breeding program and look forward to hearing of your successes in the future! We will offer a complimentary lunch from 11:45am to 12:45 pm with the sale starting promptly at 1:00pm. It will be an honor to have you as our guests in the Lake Preston area for our sale on November 8, 2014.

Cows to

Build a Herd Around RLL GOIN’ PLACES 1329PET F950190 A former national reserve champion, this 2244 daughter has been admired throughout her life for her stylish combination of femininity, width and depth. The daughters of Goin’ Places are fantastic. We need more of them! We have enhanced her impact on our herd through the use of sons by Wyoming Wind, M6 Density (Big Top x 248), BPC BottomLine (914 x 2244) and M6 Fresh Air (Three Trees Wind x 914). The daughters of these bulls are exemplifying the same characteristics that made Goin’ Places so desirable.

MS COOLEY S DUKE 1107N60 F991119 This dam of Cooley Royce has been called a “freak” because of her enormous width and spring of rib. The kind of power that N60 transmits makes breeding easy! She has worked with every bull we’ve tried. Her sons are stout, growthy and easy to sell, while her daughters and granddaughters are maternal and productive. Have you seen the Royce daughters? They will work in anyone’s herd. We expect N60‘s influence to permeate our herd for many years to come.

M6 MS E46’S DUKE 248 PET F967918 With over 135 registered progeny, few females have had a greater impact on the breed than 248. We purchased an interest in 248 from M6 as a first calf heifer because we thought she was the most feminine Cigar daughter we had ever seen. Upon selling her, we produced nine clones to 248, ensuring that her genetics will continue to proliferate in our herd. Since the clones are just as productive as the original, the possibilities are endless.

“My grandpa bought his first Charolais in the 1950s. My dad started raising Charolais in the ‘70s. I have been raising commercial cows that I run Charolais bulls with. This past year my sons and I decided in memory of my father and my grandfather we were going to build the best Charolais herd in the country. All of the cows we have bought are polled, good calving ease and low birth weight that still have good performance.” – Chris Hess
