VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS Going to the Source

We are listening and learning.

T

here’s always a bit of anxiety when doing anything for the first time. That was the case at the recently concluded “Listening & Learning” Seminar held at the Noble Research Institute, Ardmore, Okla. The entire focus for the first seminar was industry connectivity. The goal was to explore and discuss the importance AND value of information up and down the supply chain. The all-day event featured genomic information experts, commercial cow-calf producers, cattle feeders and seedstock suppliers. The speakers represented literally every segment of the food chain. The 75 in attendance found the information overwhelmingly positive and left asking for more. One of the greatest challenges to leverage the live sessions is how to capture the information, package it and mass distribute, all in an effort to multiply the impact and reach more people with useful information. Increasing Charolais marketshare or ensuring Charolais is considered in any breeding scenario or production model is dependent on our ability to gather, present and disseminate timely, accurate information. Each session was videoed

“Pounds and dressing percentage are the biggest drivers on any grid today. That’s why Charolais cattle fit. We like the feed efficiency of Charolais. Going forward, as we talk about sustainability, we’ve got to start to worry about how much feed it takes to put a pound of gain on cattle. In our part of the state, we grow our crops off of the Ogallala Aquifer and it takes a lot of water. So, the more pounds we can produce using less corn and less water, the more sustainable our businesses will be.” —Tom Jones, Hy-Plains Feedyard, Montezuma, Kan. “The Charolais breed does a good job of meeting the needs of the commercial producer. We can maximize our yield coming off the ranch in an economically favorable way. If we look at our weaning and yearling weight EPDs, we can get a nice, big, heavy calf coming off the ranch, but also use EPDs for calving ease and birth weight to guarantee that we will not have calving problems. When I sit down with producers to work through their goals, their number one goal is a live calf. We can minimize dystocia issues by utilizing calving ease and birth weight EPDs.” — Dr. Robert Wells,

If we’re serious about seeking answers to complex beef industry issues, “going to the source” is the most expeditious way to get change-making information. and individual interviews were conducted after their presentations. The videos can be found on www.CharolaisUSA.com / Why Charolais / Videos. Videos can also be found on YouTube.com. Each participant shared a wealth of information. Brief excerpts follow: “As a commercial bull buyer, it’s important to have a multitrait approach. You very rarely can find a program where single-trait selection is effective. As an industry, we’ve evolved beyond a point to where we think multiple trait in nature.” —Dr. Sally Northcutt, AICA Genetic Consultant “We run 520 cows that are predominately black Angus, Red Angus and black baldies. We run all Charolais bulls. Our Charolais bulls are all in the top 30 percentile for yearling weight, ribeye and marbling. We constantly have a study program on our calves. We send them to a feedlot, sometimes retaining ownership, sometimes selling, sometimes retaining partial ownership. In all cases we collect blood samples and get parent verification. We get the grid data when the calf is sold, typically through U.S. Premium Beef, and trace back to our bulls. We know, not only how our bulls are performing, we know how to buy the next set of bulls.” —Max Martin, JX Ranch, Loving, Tex.

Noble Research Institute “One of the advantages of Charolais is the ability to produce high quality cattle from a marbling and quality grade perspective. By adding muscle and red meat yield, and finding new cuts, cutting styles and methods, Charolais has a real advantage over some other breeds. We can still get quality and increase muscle and yield which is very valuable to our industry.” —Gretchen Mafi, Meat Sciences Professor, Oklahoma State University If we’re serious about seeking answers to complex beef industry issues, “going to the source” is the most expeditious way to get change-making information. Our goal was to seek participants with direct connection to the beef industry and decades of success in their respective sectors. Make no mistake. We are listening and learning. So, thanks to all involved who helped make AICA’s first “Listening & Learning” Seminar a success. We hope you will plan to attend the next Listening & Learning Sessions to be announced at a later date.

Sales of Bred Females

Females sold bred must have all breeding information included to complete the transfer. Service date and appropriate sire signatures are necessary. Link Your Herd Management Package to AICA

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

WHITE

Ranching family lets passion fuel their business through life’s rocky terrain By Amy Blum

22  

O C T O B E R 2017

our generations ago, a Nevada rancher near the small mining community of Mountain City introduced Angus cattle to an all-Hereford landscape. The rancher was a visionary, but first, he was dubbed many other names by those in the staunchly red and white community. Over the years, the hides dotting the treacherous mountain terrain became solid black. Ranchers became entrenched in the black-hided excitement sweeping across the country. Soon, the now-faded mining town was deeply rooted in Angus genetics. Today, that visionary rancher’s great-granddaughter and her family are again making waves in the staunch ranching community, which is located about 30 miles south of the Nevada/Idaho border. This time, however, the cattle moving onto the landscape are all white … Charolais white to be specific. “Growing up, Angus projects were my focus in 4-H and FFA,” says Cara (Bieroth) Small. “My parents have well over 40 years in the Angus business. I even interned with the Angus Journal while getting my journalism degree at the University of Nevada in Reno. Black cattle are what I knew. But, my husband [Wade Small] had a Charolais herd when we met, and those cows quickly changed my perspective!”

CHAROlAis JOuRNAl


Wade Small, co-owner of Small Livestock, turns the family’s commercial calves back to their mother’s after branding on their Nevada mountain ranch.

Wade Small and daughter Paisley look over a group of pairs during their first winter on the ranch located near Mountain City, Nevada.

Wade drives a handful of Small Livestock’s yearling bulls to be sorted.

Wade adds, “Cara’s family is dyed in the wool Angus, but her dad has always been very progressive. Her parents and brother have been great partners. Their help and enthusiasm has made all the difference in our growth.”

Humble beginnings

Wade Small was on the judging team at Oregon State when his coach—Clint Sexson—took the team to work out at the Hoodoo Ranch near Cody, Wyoming. There, Small and Sexson recognized the high-quality cattle being produced by the ranch. They returned to the university, but the Hoodoo cattle stayed on their minds. “It was awful dry around the Hoodoo in 2001, and they were selling some of their Charolais cattle,” Small says. “Dennis Metzger introduced me to some folks; then, Clint and I worked out a deal. Soon, we had our first five Charolais cows.” The pair built their shared herd to about 35 purebred cows by focusing on embryo transfer (ET) and the use of Hoodoobred sires. They prioritized animals with structural soundness, growth, and carcass quality. As Sexson/Small Charolais grew, so did the Small Family. Wade and Cara were married in 2007. They welcomed daughter Paisley in 2010 and daughter Marlie in 2013. “We’ve been very lucky over the years,” Cara says. “When

one door closed, another even better opportunity seemed to open.”

Moving up

One of the biggest doors opened about six years ago when Wade and Cara discovered the opportunity to partner with Cara’s family—Bieroth Angus—on a ranch adjacent to the Bieroth Family ranch near Mountain City, Nevada. “We moved 30 white cows into black country, and I know we were the talk of the town for quite a while,” Wade says. “There was nothing but a black cow for miles. Today, we’ve got 250 head of Charolais out there. We see a lot of opportunity.” With their mountain ranch towering at 6,000-feet, not just any animal makes the cut to stay. “My parents [Dennis & Marcia Bieroth] have been breeding Angus cattle for this terrain for a long time, and I know there were some worries about how our white cows would hold up,” Cara says. “But, our Charolais hold their own with Dad’s herd in this rough, rocky country. We take pride in breeding for superb feet and legs. A great cow or bull starts at the ground level, so if that part’s right, we know they can succeed anywhere.” Wade echoes his wife’s belief in their cow herd’s performance abilities. continued on page 54

That’s because conventional dewormers last only 14 to 42 days. But the optimum time to breed back a cow is 85 days post-calving. That’s when they need to be getting the most from their feed, not sharing with parasites. Only LONGRANGE delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single treatment.1

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extended-release anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age. STORAGE Store at 77° F (25° C) with excursions between 59° and 86° F (15° and 30° C). Protect from light. Made in Canada. Manufactured for Merial, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA.

Directors By Area

H

i juniors! My name is Caitlin Jedlicka and I’m serving as an At-Large director on the Junior Charolais board this year. I’m from a little town in Southern Missouri called Koshkonong. I’m seventeen years old and currently a junior at West Plains High School. I am very excited to have a chance to serve on the Junior Board this year; it has been a goal of mine for a while. I was raised in the Charolais breed and have been showing since I was two years old. Being raised in the breed, my herd consists of purebreds and composites, along with some commercial females. I am heavily involved in FFA in my high school chapter as well as the area association. I have been competing in Junior National contests since I was five and been attending Junior Nationals since I was a baby.

Q: What is your favorite aspect of the Charolais breed? A: From a cattle standpoint, my favorite thing about the

Charolais breed is the versatility of the breed. They are hardy enough for the rocky country, the cold north or the hot summer days of the south. Their growth works for the feedlot, their lower birth weights work for the cow calf producers and a larger ribeye as well as more marbling work for the consumer.

Q: What was your favorite show heifer and why? A: UG Hope is my favorite show heifer. She had a special

personality that made her stand out from the rest. We butted heads a lot in the beginning but by the time she was done showing she was one of the most lovable show heifers I’ve Q: What accomplishments are you most proud of? ever had. Now she’s enjoying life as a cow and is grateful for A: Being selected as Champion Intermediate Showman at a scratch or handful of feed every time you go into her field. the 2016 Junior National is one of my proudest moments. I was very grateful to be selected, especially since it was in my Q: What are your hobbies/interests? home state. The other is being second in the state with my A: Aside from showing cattle, I enjoy deer and turkey Agriculture Sales Proficiency through FFA. hunting, as well as trapshooting with my FFA chapter. As long as someone will take the fish off my hook for me I Q: What is your favorite Junior National contest? enjoy fishing as well. Pretty much anything outdoors or A: My favorite Junior National contest is team sales. I plan farming related interests me. to go into Agribusiness and Agricultural Sales in the future, and this contest has given me a chance to work with a team Q: What do you look forward to the most about the National ROE Show in Kansas City this year? and gain more skills for the future. A: I look forward to seeing all of my friends from around Q: What advice do you have for your fellow juniors? the country that I only get to see a few times a year. The A: My advice to any new showman or any showman is American Royal has a rich history and it’s always a fun time to get out and talk to people. You never know how big of to listen to the history and walk through the museum. Did an impact someone can have on your life or your future. you know the Kansas City Royals baseball team is named By making these friendships you are able to have people after the American Royal? around you with the same passion for the agriculture Q: If you could be any person in the world for a industry and that understand your future goals. day who would it be?

The powerful words he contests. The Junior National is one of the busiest most wrote that were adopted in 1930, still ring in every past and rewarding shows anyone could attend. From contests to present FFA members’ ears. He believed in the future of leadership sessions, there’s never a dull moment. If you go agriculture and I would love to see what went through his to everything you are very tired at the end but will keep the mind when he was writing the amazing words that make up the creed. memories with you for a long time. 32  

Selling a Guaranteed Successful Flush!

This powerful donor has made quite the name for herself over the years starting back when she was a show heifer and was named the AIJCA Junior National Grand Champion Heifer.

Several flushes in her have sold for $7,500 to $10,000. Several elite breeders have purchased flushes and embryos including 2H Charolais, Topp Land & Cattle, OBG, M6, Wild Indian Acres, Cody Cattle Company, Rathmourne Charolais and Wright Charolais.

But when she came to Fort Worth, she came to take it all powering her way through 96 head of top of the breed heifers!

She is one of Ledger’s very best daughters and her dam J139 is without doubt at the top of the breeds most outstanding donors. WC Clarice 2214’s first calf a bull, was born on her second birthday at 73 lbs. and weaned with a 747 lbs. weaning weight. He then sold as a yearling for $12,000 to MDL Farms in Illinois. Her next calf a heifer tipped the scales to a 741 lb. weaning weight to ratio 112 to rank 6th out of 58 heifers in that calf crop. Her next calf another herd sire prospect sired by Rushmore will be the heaviest calf in his contemporary group! Mated to WC Milestone 5223 P will only add to the performance as his 861 lb. weaning weight will be another added plus!

LT Rushmore 8060 P x WC Brenda Beebop 8008 This mating has been one of extreme success. The last three natural calves WC Brenda Beebop 8008 has produced are pictured after winning shows across the country! But it also started before that with her first calf, he sold for $8,000 and is a herd sire for Hebbert Charolais in Nebraska, her 2012 bull calf sold for $6,500 to Nebraska, her 2013 heifer calf sold to Grace Farms for $3,400 and now we start on the show winners. Beebop’s 2014 heifer WC CCC Rachel 4527 was the 2015 National Senior Heifer Champion in Louisville. Her 2015 daughter WC Brenda 5527 topped our Online Sale in 2016 at $30,000 selling to Grand Hills and then was named 2017 National Reserve Senior Calf Champion in Fort Worth and she was the #5 ranked 2016-17 Show Heifer of the Year. Finally her 2016 daughter WC Brenda 6584 P was a Junior National Class Winner for Kyeler Fields. All three of those show champions are full sibs to these embryos that sell!

She is a stylish female that is ready to breed to the bull of your choice. Then be ready to rock the show ring for another year. The Bonackers have many Game Changer daughters that did the job in the ring and are now producing very well in the pastures. This pedigree dictates continued success there too. Of course Game Changer brings the well documented Hoodoo blood into play and the power Canadian genetics of EXL and then add in the great Ms Bud 418 genetics, RC Budsmydads full sister to back it all up.

This winter heifer calf will also get the attention from the breeders on sale day. Her sire is one of the few bulls in any breed that can state he stood in the Grand Champion picture twice at the American Royal! Once as a calf in 2011 and again the following year in 2012! He also was Northwest Missouri State University’s consignment to the National Charolais Sale in Fort Worth in 2013 where a one-half interest in him sold to the Gibson family for $15,500. The dam of this heifer is sired by the Gibson’s senior herd sire for many years that they purchased from Riverdale, a great pedigreed sire out of Duke 914 and a tremendous Cigar donor.

An elite pedigree –Rushmore out of a Wind-Cigar combination that goes back to the famous SCC Mary cow family. 2. Phenotype-Just what you’d expect; very correct, deep-bodied with awesome rib shape along with a cool front end with a brood cow body. 3. Balanced EPD profile and a great disposition, perfect for any show person, young or old. Her dam is a workhorse in the J&A herd. She gives us a good one every year and we currently have two daughters in the herd, that produce just like her!

Rushmore females are turning out to be fantastic producers and are rarely seen for sale. At last fall’s M&M Charolais Dispersal 62 weaning age heifer calves by various sires averaged $2,270 with the only 7 Rushmore sired heifer calves averaging $5,680! This heifer’s full brother, CD Washington 6003 P topped the Cannon-Deutsch Bull Sale this past spring at $11,000 with a 125 weaning weight ratio and was the 2016 Iowa State Fair Reserve Bull Calf Champion. The dam of this heifer has a nursing ratio average of 120 on four progeny. Along with this heifer’s impressive EPD profile, three generations of prolific cows behind her and solid phenotype, it takes the guess work out of finding a great replacement here for your herd.

They think they are going to be very special heifer replacements and it is hard for them to let them go! This one is extra special however, as she is linebred to the great maternal sires LT Long Distance 9001 and LT Bluegrass 4017. Her dam was 8 Story Farms pick out of all the weaned heifer calves in the Vedvei female sale in 2014. You can expect her to develop into a mature cow with sound feet, excellent milk and udder. This smooth fronted heifer with a big belly will make a great brood cow and look good doing it!

Austin tells us that no one has walked into their pasture and left without commenting on how much they liked this heifer! She is stout and structurally sound with good feet. Add in a strong top, nice rib shape, good hair and you are looking at a great show prospect. When her time in the show ring is over, you’ll have a pedigree backed by over 50 years of breeding from the Weink Charolais herd and anchored by the highly proven LT Ledger 0332 to put to work in your pasture.

The young dam of this heifer is a rising star in the Cannon-Deutsch herd and heading towards AICA Sterling Dam status! She was born 3-28-13 and has a calving interval of 1-30-15, 1-24-16 & 2-5-17, her three calves have an average weaning weight ratio of 109.7 including this heifer at 109. The sire of this heifer was a high seller at $16,000 in the 2015 Wright Charolais Bull Sale after posting an impressive 874 lb. weaning weight and a ratio of 117 and was sired by the up and coming WC Up The Limit 1128. This heifer has the same deep rib and up headed look of her dam and with her weaning performance and maternal heritage leads us to believe she will follow in her mom’s footsteps as an elite producer.

This heifer is super nice fronted along with the belly and thickness required to show and win. She is sired by the 65 lb. birth weight herd sire that sold in the M&M Dispersal to club calf producer Jace Smith. His dam sold to Clint Hall in Kentucky and she was out of the dam of Baldridge Kojack 29K! The dam of this heifer was James Sparks pick of all the bred heifers at the same successful dispersal. She is the youngest in the offering but not one to overlook.

This heifer can be found in the Matt Bauerlein SAC Show Cattle string in Kansas City and she was his selection out of Dotty’s nice small herd to bring and show you what good females she has. Her SVY Freedom sired dam has been a great producer for Dotty placing daughters in the Rachel Hockenbery show string and another daughter selling to Dr. Gary Cooper in Texas. This heifer matches up to the Macy Meadows consignment to Kansas City last year that sold for $4,000.

Included in those progeny are Circle K Juliette that sold for $11,000 to JVS Charolais in the 2013 National Charolais Sale in Fort Worth and she went on to be the Reserve Grand Champion Female in the 2013 Houston Livestock Show and came back the following year and was the Grand Champion in 2014! But it hasn’t stopped there. At the recent 2017 Missouri State Fair, Circle K Jackie O, owned by Emma Hankins won the Grand Champion Female award and will be hunting for more purple in Kansas City! Ike & Jack were first and second in their class and their division at the 2017 Maryland State Fair with “Jack” taking home the Grand Champion Bull honors. Well known judge Mark Johnson from Oklahoma referred to the “boys” as “trucks” in the show ring, and there is not a doubt you will see their powerful muscling right away! This “choice” offers you the opportunity to bring together all the high powered genetics from Circle K Antoinette and the $105,000 LT Patriot who’s progeny are the talk of the town! Look for these two bulls in the Jason Hankins show string in Kansas City. Both bulls will sell!

Single Step:

The Latest Advancement in Genomic Evaluation Kelli Retallick and Dan Moser, AGI

S

ince 2015, AICA has provided genomically enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPD) for Charolais cattle. Using a multi-step approach, based on calibration research from Iowa State University, genomic test results have been combined with pedigree information and performance data, resulting in greater accuracy, especially for young animals. Now AICA will soon transition to a Single Step genomic evaluation. The move is the result of years of research and development to equip Charolais breeders with the most sophisticated, accurate and reliable genetic selection tools available.

What is Single Step?

amounts of genetic material passed down from many generations prior. Single Step recognizes these relationships based on DNA markers, and more effectively connects data among animals. Using these genomic relationships, the Single Step methodology results in more accurate genomic values than ever before.

Genomics Updated in Real Time

It is well documented that genomic predictions need to be recalculated regularly as additional data and genotypes are added to the database. Single Step does just that, by updating the genomic information each time the evaluation is run. With Single Step all sources of information – pedigree, performance, progeny data and genomic results – are updated in real time. This is a positive for breeders as the GE-EPDs are not based on outdated information, and when young sires generate their first progeny data, that information is immediately used in the genomic evaluation.

The key difference between Single Step genomic evaluation and multi-step evaluation is how genetic relationships between animals are determined. With the previous multi-step approach, the relationships between animals are determined by pedigree alone. Pedigree data would dictate all full sibs, for example, would have Proven Improvement in Other Breeds a genetic relationship to one another of 50%, and the relationship While Single Step will be new to AICA members, a number between grandparent and grand-progeny is 25%. These are the of other species and beef breeds have successfully used this correct values on average. However, we know variation exists in technology. Most dairy cattle, swine and poultry genetic these relationships among relatives. evaluations use this approach, in many cases using the same The genomic information identifies differences that the University of Georgia software used at AGI. Other US beef pedigree alone cannot detect. In Single Step evaluation of other breeds such as Beefmaster, Brangus and Santa Gertrudis have used breeds, genomic relationships among full-sibs range from as low as Single Step since the beginning of their genomic evaluations. The 35%, to 65% or higher. Some pairs of flush-mates share over twoAmerican Angus Association successfully transitioned to Single thirds of their genetic material, while others share as little as oneStep in July 2017, followed by the Canadian Angus Association third.

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 a 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. I am in the third year of serving on the AICA Board of Directors for Area 2 and am the Chairman of the Commercial Committee. 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.

I grew up around Charolais cattle. They existed on this farm before I existed I am 47 years old. I graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelors in Agri Business/ Ag Economics. I am married to Angie and have two children Haley and Brayden. I host two bull sales a year, sell show heifers as well as pairs both private treaty and in various sales. The Farm is composed of 821 acres and I lease another 900 acres. We strive to raise above average Charolais bulls for the commercial cattleman to satisfy the easy calving/explosive growth in calves they are looking for. I have served on AICA committees in the past. We have attended national shows as well as regional. I have served on the Charolais Association of Texas board for several years now. The latest terms being President and Secretary. I believe being a member of AICA should be rewarding, not a burden. I would like to find ways to increase membership and retain membership as well as expand the number of commercial herds using Charolais genetics

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. 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. Laci, Weston, Josi and I are working to grow our commercial bull buyer base for the offspring of the 400 plus seedstock and commercial cows that we currently run. Currently, we sell an average 85 to 100 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 both the AICA and AIJCA. 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 served as an advisor for the Kansas junior Charolais Association for 6 years. My beliefs have not changed since running for my first term. All successful organizations have transparency and accountability which lead to efficient problem solving and longevity. Like anything, it is hard to manage what is not measured. 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 need to continue to evolve with the ever- changing beef industry. We as an organization need to continue to be reflective on whether or not we are providing the needed services for our members. We as an organization need to make sure we are earning our “keep”.

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 Degree in Agricultural Business later served in the Missouri National Guard. My wife Lois and I were married in 1975 and have two grown children and five grandchildren. Our daughter Meredith and her family live in Fort Collins, Colorado, where she is a Certified Public Accountant. Our son Brian and his family live in the Bowling Green area and he is President and Manager of our agricultural based business. I farmed full-time until 1996 and at that time purchased our business, Feeders Grain. Our Charolais cattle operation began in 1981 with the purchase of a Charolais bull. In 1989, we began to build our purebred Charolais herd, MBS Charolais. Our main focus with the cattle operation is selling commercial bulls and building strong cow families. I am currently serving as the AICA Board of Directors Area 8 Director. I have been Chairman of the Advertising/Marketing Committee since 2015 and Vice Chairman of the Finance Committee since 2016. I am honored to have been elected by the Board to serve on the AICA Executive Committee as Vice President for 2017-18. Over the past three years, the Advertising/Marketing Committee has directed an aggressive and well accepted advertising campaign centered on “More Pounds. More Profit.” both in print and digital. Also a redesign of the AICA website has been accomplished – the website averages over 26,000 visits each month and has shown an increase in total visits. Currently the committee is reviewing and updating the breed’s advertising campaign for 2018-2019. Viewing AICA activity over the past year, we have seen an increase in WHR enrollments and membership. The creation of the American Charolais Foundation will certainly expand the breed’s reach to help meet our future challenges. The Board of Directors has been diligent in reviewing and adapting new tools for genetic evaluation – in the near future single-step methodology will be adapted in calculating genomicenhanced EPDs. I have also been active regionally in industry organizations. In the past I served as Vice President of the Missouri Charolais Breeders Association and on the Board of Directors for three terms. I have served three terms as the Northeast Missouri Cattleman’s President and am a member of the Pike-Lincoln Cattleman’s Association. I also participate annually in the University of Missouri Extension Show Me Select Bull Test and Heifer Program. With my professional and cattle background, I feel I would continue to 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. I have had the privilege to serve as your area director for the past 3 years and have met and spoken with many Charolais breeders in Missouri as well as breeders in other areas. It

Steve Peterson • Peterson Farms Charolais

Along with over 250 Charolais cattle we run about 600 commercial cattle. The calves from this herd are custom fed to compile carcass data and performance records on Peterson Farms Sires, with this information, the use of ultrasound and hard work we have developed a successful bull market over the years. Along with our farming operation, I also operate a commercial construction company with 15-20 full time employees. My responsibilities include all types of business decisions, from scheduling to budgeting to performance quality, which I also believe are the important factors in operating a successful association. Since 1988 the Petersons – Steve, Sandy, Jeremiah, Pete & Joe, have been very active in every aspect of the Charolais cattle industry, from the show ring – showing our own cattle, to the sale ring – having our own bull sale for the past 25 years, and consigning in over 9 female sales around the country every year. I look forward to aid in steering the Charolais business in a profitable and enjoyable venture for new and old Charolais people. I have served as the President of the Missouri Charolais Breeders Association and would be honored to serve as the Area 8 Director, if so elected to represent the Charolais breeders of Missouri.

My name is Troy Bertsche. My parents are Steve and Julie. And my grandparents are June and the late Paul Bertsche. I grew up on our family farm, LaFraise Farms, in Flanagan, IL where they run a purebred Charolais herd and grow corn and soybeans. After graduating Flanagan High School I attended Illinois State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. I currently work for Ruff Brothers Grain Company, where I manage their Spires grain elevator. My love for the Charolais breed led me to make my first purchase in 2013, the first female for Bertsche Farms. In 2014 Katie and I got married. And in 2016 we welcomed our first child, Elsie June. We currently reside in Flanagan, IL. I am an AIJCA National Board alumnus. I was fortunate to have the privilege of serving as President during my time on the junior board. Growing up I was also able to hold each office at the state level as a junior. I am currently serving as President for the Illinois Charolais Breeders Association. I look forward to the opportunity to get more into “the business side of beef”. It has always been interesting looking back to see how the breed has been evolving to meet the times. Consumer preferences are ever changing, but the Charolais breed has a strong foundation to meet those needs. I believe Genomic testing coupled with genetic diversity are paramount in allowing us to build the best cattle to meet our consumer’s needs. I hope to give back to the association that has given me so much. And help steer our association in the right direction, bringing opportunity to large and small breeders alike.

I am a retired Agriculture Educator. My wife, Patti, and I operate Carey Farms. My family has been raising Charolais cattle for over 36 years. Our daughter, Katie, was very active in exhibiting cattle and served on the Junior Board. Our operation is two-fold. We provide receipts and raise ET calves for producers along with a cow/calf and ET donor program. We are very active in marketing our cattle in southeast sales and private tready. Carey Farms is very active in supporting FFA and 4-H with livestock projects. Youth are the key to future agriculture success. Charolais Activities include—AICA member for 36 years, serving on the Activities Committee, member of Morgan County Cattleman’s Association, and member of Georgia Florida Charolais Association I served on the National Board of Directors in the 1980’s. A lot of positive changes have been made in our breed since then. However, we still need to continue to work on cattlemens’ perceptions of our white cattle. As a Director, I will continue to promote our breed and seek out new ways to increase the number of people breeding and using Charolais genetics. I will have an open door for all breeders in Area !6 to voice their thoughts and opinions on how to improve our breed association. Our Charolais junior program has a special place in my heart. As Director, I will continue to focus our energy on young people interested in the field of Agriculture. Our association needs to continue to hold and develop strong junior programs, like our annual Junior National. I would appreciate this opportunity and would work hard representing my area.

Douglas T. Rogers • Rogers Bar HR

the years I have seen how the Charolais breed has improved the cattle in the South and how they have a great future in the cattle industry. I had the privilege of serving as a director from 2006 to 2014. I have served on several of the breed’s committees. We have had several field days at our ranch to promote the Charolais breed. We also host several tour groups each year that visit Rogers Bar HR to learn about the Charolais breed and how our ranch and our cattle influence today’s cattle industry. We also host interns from across the world who come to Rogers Bar HR to learn about Charolais and ranching in general. Our last intern was from Germany. I’ve always wanted to be involved with the decision making process of the board because I feel the board sometimes loses contact with commercial cattlemen and the commercial business. I think it is important that we as Charolais breeders remember what traits the Charolais breed offers the commercial cattlemen – fast growth, feed efficiency, and lean meat. We must keep focused on these traits because the purpose of the Charolais breed is to help commercial cattlemen make money. We must also remember that half of our calves are heifers, and our Charolais females must produce enough milk to raise heavy calves. So the maternal traits of Charolais must not be forgotten. It is a balancing act between growth traits and maternal traits, but one that must be addressed. In the past the Charolais breed has gone from one extreme to another: too big to too small; no milk to too much milk. Each breeder needs to work on finding a middle ground that meets the customers’ needs and the breeder’s own environmental conditions. I feel that the breed needs to help members cut down on the extremes that we produce from time to time.

I grew up working on my family’s Charolais ranch. My parents, Harlan and Dorotheann Rogers began raising Charolais cattle in 1959. My brothers and I showed cattle all over the southeastern United States. We all worked on the farm and did everything we could do on a ranch, from building fences to sorting cattle. After graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point and serving in the Army, I returned home and started running stocker cattle and helping my dad with the Charolais herd. In 2006, I was named by Beef Magazine as one of the Top 3 Stocker Operators in the United States. In 2008, I bought Rogers Bar HR, the Charolais side of our cattle operation, from my parents. This year Rogers Bar HR will breed a little over 600 head and sell close to 250 bulls. Annually, my family runs a little over 100,000 head of cattle from as far east as Florida and as far west as New Mexico and as far north as the Flint Hills of Kansas. Over

I was born (32 years ago) and raised in Lyons, Georgia. Received a business degree from Brewton Parker College. Purchased a Charolais herd in 2014, now I am managing 200 purebred Charolais in a seedstock operation. Last year I sold 30 bulls and I plan to sell 100 in the next 2 years as we continue to grow. I am a member of the American-International Charolais Association, on the board of the local Farm Bureau, member of the Georgia Young Farmers, and active with FFA. I am also a member of the Tattnal County Chapter of Georgia Cattlemen. Would like to see continued growth in the Charolais industry; also would like to get the word out on the advantages of the Charolais breed in the cattle business. I believe that Charolais cattle will give you more pounds and more profit.

AICA Board of Director Nominees Area 14 David Clark • Clark Charolais

I live in Denton, Maryland with my wife Sharon. My family’s involvement with the Charolais breed was started in 1962 by my father Jim Clark and I have continuously owned Charolais breeding stock since 1968, when I was 8 years old. I presently operate a herd of 20 Purebred females and also put in 10-15 embryos in a recipient herd each year. Plans are to expand this herd and also expand a family owned retail beef sales operation. I just concluded a 35 year career in Agricultural Lending with MidAtlantic Farm Credit and during that time I have been a Loan Officer, Credit Analyst, and a Vice President for the company. I received a B.S. Degree in Animal Science from Virginia Tech in 1982, and was on the Livestock Judging team there in 1980. I greatly enjoyed being an AIJCA member from the early 1970’s to the early 1980’s. I attended a number of the Junior National events and served as a Director on the Junior Board for a two year term. My regional Charolais involvement is through membership in the Colonial Charolais Association and I have served as President, Secretary/ Treasurer, Director and Junior Advisor. I have attended many Junior Nationals with my sons, as they were active in the AIJCA for a number of years. On the local level I have served as President and Treasurer of our County Fair. From an early age I’ve been a student of the Charolais breed and have observed and participated in a lot of its history. I would like to serve as a Director to put that knowledge to work in advancing the breed in the future. I’m very open to input from the membership and feel that I can put my cattle and business skills together to help the AICA keep moving in a positive direction.

Dotty Macy • Macy Meadows

As I complete this term as AREA 14 Director, I would ask your support to serve you again. Having supported your interests at the National level has been a challenge. A major one was finding people willing to represent our area, not willing to make the time to represent Area 14 twice a year at the meetings. I know the sacrifices/planning this requires as I represented Area 14 without reimbursement for ten years. The pool/membership of our area is limited making the selection a difficult one. Since my election in 2015, I have fulfilled the responsibilities of a director as expected attending all meeting of Directors and participated on various committees in the absence of Area 14 members. If elected, I will do more than what is expected and represent the Charolais membership in the East. 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 Seed Stock and Environmentaul 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. Going to the Junior National in Kansas afforded the opportunity to make four visits in Missouri and Kansas. Having cattle partnerships with other Charolais breeders has been another source of expanding my knowledge.

O C T O B E R 2017

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 2014 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 Council, Activities, and Breeding 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. We toured from Maryland to New York over a weekend visiting Charolais farms, the Keystone Show, Gettysburg battlefields, and got wet under Niagara Falls in Buffalo! A beef tour in Australia, three World Congress Tours, and Seed Stock Tours in the US have broadened my knowledge of the Charolais breed, have provided insights to where our breed fits in the Big Picture, and have caused me to question, “ What is my role?” 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 bulls in the area. Examples of programs worth considering for more active AICA support might include arrangement of special Charolais cross feeder calf sales or even development of a retained ownership program so that smaller commercial producers can better take advantage of improved Charolais genetics. Personally, Macy Meadows’ bulls have been finished in Texas with a partnership established there. Additionally, replacement heifers have been shipped west. A feedlot connection in Pennsylvania is being used by Pennsylvania and Maryland breeders as the owner has established a market for Charolais bulls. The demand for the Charolais influence is gaining ground in Area 14. 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 like birth weight, growth, and marbling. 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 something like an EPD for calving interval and longevity might be developed in the future. I would also be interested in consideration of programs that might evaluate animal traits such as feet and legs and udder quality. Hopefully, programs like these would help breeders avoid concentrating too much on performance to the detriment of the entire breed. 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.

J. Robert Tibbs, Jr. • Shadow Springs Farm

I have been raising Charolais cattle since the 1970’s. From the time the new building opened in Kansas City, I have missed very few annual meetings. We currently have 70 purebred mama cows. We sell our bulls locally by word of mouth and advertising in a regional newspaper. We are happy to support county 4H and FFA kids by providing heifers for their projects. We feed out and sell the bottom end of our calves for freezer beef to local customers, many of whom have been buying from us for years. We were fortunate to have the 40th Reserve National Champion Bull in 2009, SSF Cork’s 5-J White Squall. He has prodigy across the United States, from the east to west and north to south. He has put Shadow Springs Farm on the map. I have served offices in the Colonial Charolais Association including the presidency. During my long membership in the AICA, I have been privileged to serve as President for two years as well as serving on the Board of Directors and in various committees throughout the years. I want to see the AICA organization continue to grow and prosper. It is important to me to help the AICA make the correct decisions during these changing times in order to further the Great White Breed.

continued from page 23 “You have to breed cattle where their strong points are,” he says. “With Angus-base numbers so large, I think opportunities for Charolais cattle are huge. We’ve got amazing, strong traits on the terminal side. Couple those with above-average structure and you’ll create bulls that hold up with longevity. I see staying power and advantages for Charolais breeders. There is nothing like the heterosis and value of a purebred Charolais bull on black commercial cows.”

To accommodate the family’s schedule, the Smalls focus on calving in July and August. This provides an advantage when marketing 18-monthold bulls, but it also ensures the family’s presence. “Once school’s out, all my girls load up and move to the ranch,” Wade says. “Then, I commute to them every weekend. Both of us not being on the ranch seven days a week has presented challenges, and we’ve had to grow slow and small. But, when I step back to look at the set of moderately framed, functional cattle we’ve created together, I know it’s all been worthwhile.”

Unique advantages

While a sprawling mountain ranch and two young girls are enough to keep any family busy, it’s not the only occupation filling the Small family’s plate. Wade’s Insider perspective full-time work as president of the livestock Wade’s career with Agri Beef spans division for Agri-Beef headquarters keeps more than 15 years.

Then, we load up each Snake River Feedyard in American Falls, “I’ve come to learn great cattle are weekend and make the three-hour drive Idaho. From there, he transitioned to important, but if we can’t get the right to the ranch.

But, we love it, and we do it over in Small Livestock and president of the before settling in his role overseeing and over!” operations and supply management for livestock division at Agri Beef Cara is quick to add, “We all make Agri Beef ’s feedyards, packing plants, and sacrifices, but there’s no ranches. doubt we can only do “I’ve got to do it all all of this because my here,” he laughs. “A lot of parents, brother and what I do now revolves sister-in-law are there on around personnel issues the ranch.

throughout the plant, and lots of flexibility when it comes to marketing end products. These cattle are identifiable, and though data returns are slow in this business, I know what my family is doing in our personal cattle herd is making a difference down the line.” With connection to every point of the livestock industry, Wade’s position has allowed him a couple eye-opening lessons. “In some ways, I know my job makes what we do on the ranch easier, but I’ve also gotten to see and understand exactly how long it really takes to effect change,” the Klamath Falls-native says. “I’ve also come to learn that great cattle are important, but if we can’t get the right people in the right places, nothing else really matters.” He continues, “That’s where Charolais breeders have another advantage. In my experience, we see the value in what our cattle offer at each point of the industry. We believe in our product.”

Forward thinking

The Small Family knows they can’t forecast where they or their operation will be in five or 10 years, but they know where they’ve been. “I’m quite partial to our Charolais cows,” Cara says. “I have an awful lot of pride in them because it’s something we’ve built together as a family. Frankly, the love of what we do drives us. Raising our kids on the ranch, letting them learn with their own hands and see with their own eyes … that’s what Wade and I both love.” Neither Wade nor Cara takes the responsibility of raising a family or a cattle business lightly. Yet, they are committed to creating a lifestyle for the future. “I think about our future a lot, and I know Wade is content to grow. But, I focus on living in the moment because what we do and how we do it is such a juggling act,” Cara says. “The demands of our ranch aren’t any less just because we’re not there; sometimes, I feel like the demands are even greater. Both of us know, though, this is what we’re meant to do. These Charolais cows are helping us create a bright future.”

High fives go all around as Paisley Small congratulates her sister Marlie (top) and dad Wade (bottom) for successfully getting a handful of new calf pairs out the gate.

“The demands of our ranch aren’t any less just because we’re not there … Both of us know, though, this is what we’re meant to do. These Charolais cows are helping us create a bright future.” ~Cara Small, partner in Small Livestock

Mar icopa 4194

King of Calving & Then Some.

Maricopa amazes us more every day. Ranking in the top 1% for calving and birth weight, one would expect calving ease--and he brings it in spades. One would expect impeccable structure, muscle, thickness & superior carcass--he delivers four aces. But where he blows you away is how they perform after birth. He deals a royal flush in performance every time. Still not impressed? In our first annual spring sale, the high selling sire group for bulls were sired by Maricopa. The high selling bull was sired by Maricopa. And the high selling open heifer? You got it--Maricopa! Starting to get the picture? Breed him to heifers-breed him to cows. Just breed him--you’ll be glad you did! Semen - $20/Straw $35/Signing Fee

Birth to Year ling Spr ead & Sur efir e Cow Power .

This high selling son of Maricopa is in a league of his own in terms of thickness, rib shape and flawless feet & legs. Added to his sleep at night calving ease and his rare birth to yearling growth spread, Saguaro is sure to sire calves in high demand. Saguaro was his dam’s first calf. Her second calf, a bull sired by Venture, ratio’d 109% at weaning as well. She is a Royalist daughter out of one of the most powerful cows walking around at Sturgess Double S, the W949 cow, out of Thunder Cloud and an old matriach daughter of Schurshot, L014. W949 was the dam of the Ledger son Z306, a bull we sold to Andrew Fogelsong at the 2014 National Charolais Sale. Saguaro is no accident. Be sure to include him in your breeding plans this fall. You’ll be glad you did!

One would be hard pressed to find a sire who sets a faster pace, whose growth EPDs are over twice the breed average, and whose carcass EPDs are in a league of their own. Sundance does just that, and does it with style. Sundance calves carry more length of body on a sturdy & correct structure and stand on an excellent foot. His bull calves are sale toppers and desired for their performance, muscle, fertility and quiet nature. The added bonus here are daughters who carry the udder quality of his great dam, LT Ballet 9219. Furthermore, they show the ability to wean a big calf, due in part to the maternal strength of his maternal grand-sire, LT Easy Pro 1158, who ranks in the top 2% of the breed for Milk EPDs. Let Sundance set a fast pace for your next calf crop. Semen available domestically and for export. Contact: 888.333.1783 // www.crinet.com

And like his sire, he exhibits trait leading numbers for calving ease, birth, milk and scrotal. Where he differs are his above breed average numbers for grow traits. This may come from his dam, who is sired by a Silver Distance son going back to Easy Blend on the bottom side of her pedigree. Dakota Rush was her first calf and she ratio’d 107% on his weaning, and 103% on her second calf. His calves come small and easy, then hit the ground running. To date, we have 5 calves born that average 62.4 lbs at birth. They are very correct and show a great deal of depth and rib shape. Thick, stout bull calves and heifer calves that are sure to be in demand. He’s heifer friendly - breed your heifers and sleep easy during calving season.

• Two full brothers out of the Summit Farms donor Endure 532 who has a +31 Milk EPD and is double bred Oakdale Duke 9003. • Both are moderate birth, high growth, high maternal bulls with exceptional length of body, thickness, scrotal & fluid in their movement. • Ideal outcross for the Bluegrass, Blue Value, Ledger & Rushmore sire lines. • Both bulls defy the antagonism between Milk & growth--they have them both in spades. • Rare to find two full brothers who haven’t separated themselves in terms of performance, quality or structure--only time will tell.
