It has been reported that the first thing the great director Cecil B. DeMille looked for in a young and sexy starlet wasn’t her face, legs, derriere or other points of her anatomy. No, he looked at her feet! Cowboys are the same way. Ever since the first cowboys went up the trail they’ve prided themselves on having small feet. I’ll never forget meeting John Wayne for the first time. Here was this large man and yet his feet were stuffed into boots with an underslung heel that made his feet look tiny by comparison. I don’t know if cowboys wear such boots because they leave a smaller track, are a good excuse for not having to walk too far, or they are easier to get in and out of stirrups, but I tried wearing a such pair of boots one time and fell over more often than a bowling pin. It was like wearing a pair of ladies high-heeled shoes. (Not that I make a practice of that!) Every time a gentle breeze blew I had to grab on to something or else I’d lose my balance and tip over. Boots touch my sole. But make no mistake, just because I wear boots doesn’t mean I’m a real cowboy. I just don’t have the feet for it. Although I do have small feet they are so deformed I can’t wear most off-the-shelf boots. You might say that my feet have always been my Achilles Heel, and I mean that in every sense of the word. The only thing I remember about myself before the age of five is that from the moment I was old enough to wear real shoes (not those cute little things babies wear) I had to wear high-top orthopedic shoes. A toddler fashion icon I was not! Little good those clunky orthopedic shoes did because I still have a hard time finding footwear. I’ve thought of getting a pair of custom made Paul Bond boots but I’ve heard they can cost up to $2,000 and I’d never spend three months wages on anything, let alone a pair of boots. These days I mostly wear a pair of low top Justin slip-ons that are really comfortable and look like boots from a distance but are more closely related to Nike than they are a purebred pair of Luchesses or Tony Lamas. My Wellington boot phase lasted 25 years and I was uncomfortable most of the time. In Oklahoma most cowboys have a pair of brown Justin Ropers and I really love the look, especially the way the Okies leave part of their pant legs tucked in with the other part hanging outside the boot, as if they’d just step off a real good horse. Calf ropers look really good in these boots and I should be able to pull off the look because my dad was from Tulsa, but whenever I wore them I was always getting high centered due to the low heel. And people gave me loose change because I looked like a tramp. Next I tried wearing lace-up packer boots but I’ve never liked tying my shoes and it goes against my rule of never trusting anyone who wears laceups. Because politicians invariably wear shoes that they must have someone else tie for them, I’ve always thought that they were filled with something besides feet. Know what I mean? I really admire the way the real cowboys in New Mexico wear their nearly knee-high boots, with their pant legs stuffed into them. I slept out with the cowboys on the Bell Ranch once on a roundup upon the invitation from Jeff Lane, who looked better in a pair of boots than any man I’ve ever met. When I asked the Bell Ranch boys why they wore their boots outside their pants they explained that their legs didn’t chafe as bad in the saddle and at night creepy things couldn’t crawl up into their boots because they got elevation sickness. I explained that I didn’t need such protection because any critter that crawled into my low boots was going to suffocate from the bad gases anyway. Speaking of which, Spike Van Cleve, who wrote one of the best cowboy books of all time, 40 Years Gatherins’, was from Montana and he didn’t understand the New Mexico boot look any more than I did. He tried it but explained that he really liked to eat beans and whenever he wore his pants inside his boots and he ate beans, he kept blowing his boots off.

President’s Message By Donna Laney


Springtime in the Northwest and the snow level is supposed to get down to 1000ft tonight – where is spring? Went to a meeting of the Northwest Pinzgauer Association yesterday and came away with a good feeling. The breed is alive and well out here! Several items were discussed at our APA Board meeting in March. You will find the minutes from that meeting in this issue. Knowing how to preserve the characteristics of our breed and still be able to market the animals is always an issue. Do we really want to get to the point of having to look at the ears to identify our breed? Think about what has happened to other breeds that have shied away from color or breed characteristics to “conform”. Just some random thoughts! The national show committee is hard at work and has some really nice plans for the show in Tyler. Hope to see you there! We’re seeing just a little upturn in cattle prices in the past couple of weeks. Hope you have also. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to get them to the proper people. Keep your hay dry and continue to register those good calves.


Treasurer’s Report


By Clayton Haskell

ecent months have showed a slowing of activity, both in registrations and transfers. However, we are up in total registrations and transfers compared to this point in time last year. Keep registering your cattle and be sure to transfer when you sell cattle. Much of our income is from these two activities. The APA Board of Directors is working on collecting on past due accounts. Thank you to those that have made their accounts current. If you are still past due, please make an effort to get your account current. The APA office will not process work for past due accounts or work sent without proper payment. The APA office will accept credit cards.

Pinzgauer Forum

opinions are not necessarily those of the publication and editors

My thoughts on the American Pinzgauer Association An article in CATTLE TODAY, November 7, 2009 headlined “Beef industry needs more feed-efficiency data” states feed accounts for 65-80 percent of total beef-production cost. It goes on to say feed management practices go only so far and a more promising tool for cattle producers is genetic selection for improve feed efficiency. It used to be feed efficiency data could be learned through bull test. Pinzgauer bulls were tested with outstanding results since their first importation into the United States. The first record I was able to locate was the Official Bull Test results, Eastern Nebraska Beef Cattle Testing Station, Schuyler, NE 1974, 1975 and 1976 where Pinzguaer steers were fist in Feed Conversion (pounds of feed per pound of gain) all three years, averaging 6.9 lbs of feed per pound of gain (1). In 1987, a group of bulls from Red Oak Ranch led 67 bulls in the Stephen F. Austin University Forage Bull Gain Test (2). In the “Hands On” feeding course conducted by the University of Florida Animal Science Department, Pinzguaer steers were either 1 or 2 in Average Daily Gain (ADG) and Feed Conversion for 1993-94, 1994-95 and 1995-96 (3). Many Land Grant State Universities that used to conduct bull tests have reduced of eliminated them due the current economic conditions. It is becoming more difficult to get hard data. Recent developments in DNA testing and profiling have provided a means of getting this information. Pfizer Animal Health, Animal Genetics (formerly GeneSTAR) has developed GeneSTAR MVP (Molecular Value Predictions). This provides predictions for core traits of feed efficiency, marbling and tenderness, similar to EPD’s. EPD’s are based on phenotypic records of the animal and its relatives. An MVP is derived from an animals genotype only. Pinzgauer breeders have long known of DNA testing, primarily for tenderness. Nine of the original ten Pinzgauer bulls imported to the United States and a over 80 others have been tested for tenderness. Should tenderness DNA value or accuracy be questioned by some doubting Thomas, I had steaks from two steers Bratzler shear tested by Auburn University Meat Laboratory earlier this year. Both were sired by GeneSTAR 2 star tested bull Risky Business (3C3L) reg. #5027393. One tested 4.25 kg which is considered reasonably tender. The other tested 2.81 kg, which is outstanding. I recently tested one of my bulls, CRS Semper Paratus** (CRS-55S) reg. #5031327 for MVP. He had previously been tested for tenderness, GeneSTAR 2 stars, and I was interested in feed efficiency. His MVP FE score was -2.16. This places him in the top 10% of all animals. Of course, I am proud to have bred

and own such a bull, but it comes as no surprise. I have known that Pinzgauer cattle are outstanding. One bull I had the North Florida Bull Test in 2006 gained 6.14 ADG for one 21 day period and 4.25 ADG for the entire 126 day test. One bull and one test will not change the marketability of Pinzgauer cattle. They still are not black. Feedlot and feeder buyers only care about one thing, the bottom line. If they can be shown that they will be able to improve their profits by lowering their feed cost while maintaining top tenderness and quality they will forget hid color quickly and demand Pinzguaers. The new, proposed, Certified Pinzgauer Beef will only be successful if there is valid data to back it. It sounds wonderful but how much Certified Hereford beef to you see in the markets? I encourage all Pinzgauer breeders to test which ever way possible and widely publish their results. I know they will be great, we just have to let other breeders know. Additional information regarding DNA MVP testing procedures and costs can be obtained at or 1-800-BEEF DNA. Your local county extension agent can help you regarding bull testing in your state. If I can help please contact me at or 334-885-6388. References: (1) The Pinzgauer Prophet 1976 (2) The North American Pinzgauer September 1987 (3) The Pinzgauer Journal April 1997

Twin Springs Pinzgauer Mary Ann and Ken Meredith

Feat ure Farm

Twin Springs Pinzgauer, presently owned by Ken and Mary Ann Meredith in

Coopertown, Tennessee, was purchased in 1962 by William H. Jones, Mary Ann Meredith's father. Mary Ann’s parents originally owned a dairy and then turned this farm into a tobacco operation and raised commercial cattle. After their death, Mary Ann continued with commercial cattle until she was introduced to the Pinzgauer breed in 2002. The farm is now enjoyed by our extended family of twin daughters, Susan (Ray) Morley and Ronda (Cotton) Bryant, and our three grandchildren, Timothy, Kenny and Meredith. One of the largest Pinzgauer breeders in the U.S., the current Twin Springs had an accidental start. Mary Ann and Ken Meredith were stationed in Philadelphia in 1996, when news of Mary Ann’s father’s death reached them. Ken was a U.S. Navy Captain and they were both accustomed to living the city life. The closest Mary Ann ever came to beef cattle was a filet mignon at some of the finest restaurants in the U.S. In fact, Mary Ann remembers her mother telling her NEVER to date a farmer. Mary Ann moved back to middle Tennessee, not far from the 260 acre farm, to try to figure out what to do with it. She had inherited a beautiful piece of ground, with many natural springs, and a small herd of commercial cattle. While getting some site work done on the place, she met Dennis Bryant of Silver Bullet Cattle Co. and became interested in

The initial purchase of 20 Pinzgauer cows quickly grew to over 120 Registered Pinzgauers. Eventually the commercial cattle herd was dispersed and Twin Springs converted to raise only Fullblood Pinzgauer cattle. When Ms. Woodie Talbot of Hi Point Ranch decided to disperse her herd, we were fortunate enough to acquire many of her best foundation stock. We had always preferred the type of cattle Hi Point produced and with the addition of this Hi Point foundation stock our current herd is composed of over 90% Hi Point bloodlines. The remainder of our herd is the product of Diamond T, Franklin Farms, Rockin’ A&J and Silver Bullet breeding. We are very proud of our relationship with Hi Point Ranch and our friendship with Ms. Woodie. We have learned a great deal about Pinzgauer breeding and bloodlines from her and are continually amazed at the quality of the cattle we obtained from her herd. We consider it an honor to be able to continue the breeding and improvement of the bloodlines developed over the past 30+ years by Hi Point Ranch.

the Pinzgauer breed. This venture into breeding registered cattle happened at a time when Ken was still based out of town. Mary Ann consulted the local farmers, Farmer’s Co-op, veterinarians and every other source to find out the best way to raise quality cattle. She is a Master Beef Producer for the State of Tennessee. Ken has since retired from active duty, and has also delved head first into the business. The insight and knowledge that they both have gained in such a short period of time show their passion for raising the best cattle possible. 10 The Pinzgauer Journal - June 2010

Twin Springs also owes a tremendous debt to Silver Bullet Cattle Company. We would not be in the Pinzgauer seedstock business without them. We highly value their cattle, our working relationship and our friendship with Dennis and Pam and cannot begin to thank them for all the education, opportunities and assistance they have provided us over the years. Twin Springs' mission is to continually improve the quality of the Pinzgauer breed and to make available for sale only the finest cattle we can produce. We spare no expense and make every effort to develop the finest Pinzgauer heifers available. In addition to a comprehensive veterinarian approved vaccination program, we utilize the Easy-Way Cattle Stations for year-round fly and external parasite control. We provide our cattle with what we feel is the finest mineral supplement on the market - Cargill Right-Now Minerals. This program provides the appropriate micro-nutrients and minerals at the right time of year in order to improve our cattle's over-all conditioning, reproductive health and to maximize growth and development. For the past 8 years, we have utilized a feeding program which includes Mix 30, a high energy liquid feed. Mix 30 is a liquid protein (16%) and fat (10%) supplement we provide on a free choice basis to all our cattle for improving fiber digestion. It

recently added a new barn to this cattle handling system which covers some of the corral pens and houses our Fore-Most alleyways and a Fore-Most 450 Squeeze Chute with head table. This handling equipment has now given us the ability to truly practice low-stress cattle handling in all phases of our operation. We can now easily get our cattle up, sort, separate, wean, vaccinate, dehorn and tattoo with a minimum of stress on both the cattle and the handlers. Twin Springs was named after our twin daughters, Ronda Bryant and Susan Morley, and the numerous natural springs on the property. After experiencing a severe drought three years ago during which even the ponds dried up, we decided to install MiraFount automatic waterers at strategic points across our farm. We haven't had a drought since; however, this past winter we had an unusually long period of below freezing weather where all of our ponds were frozen to the

These pellets are also carbohydrate free like the Mix Grandchild Timothy Bryant 30 liquid. The natural gut flora in cattle are not adapted to with "Cowboy" easily digest starches, sugars, etc. present in many feed rations. The bacteria naturally present in the bovine gut have evolved to digest grass Grandchildren Kenny and and similar forage. We Meredith Morley are convinced that cattle that are not exposed to carbohydrates (such as corn, molasses, etc.) are point that it was dangerous for us to even try to break the much better ice. To our delight, none of the automatic waterers froze adapted to during this period and we were able to keep our cattle out maximize the in the pastures the entire winter. We feel fresh water is natural forage so important and sometimes overlooked by some cattle available to people. We are so fortunate that our natural springs are them.

We will Although this approach may be controversial to some, after 8 years of utilizing continue to strive to give our cattle every opportunity to "be all only Mix 30, soybean hull pellets, quality hay and natural forage, the positive results in our cattle are obvious. Creep Feeder Over the past three years, Twin Springs has had a rather aggressive fencing program which has resulted in our pastures being divided into 18 separate paddocks in order for us to institute a rotational grazing program. We have also converted our entire herd to a fall calving schedule in order to maximize our rotational grazing efforts. In only our second year of this grazing program, we have already seen a significant improvement in our pasture density and the quality of forage available. We are very excited about the possibilities of rotational grazing and expect to see continued improvement from it in the future. In 2009 all of our calves were born in September, October or November (94% were within a 6 week period) and the labor savings and other benefits we realized far surpassed our expectations. We highly recommend you try a tight, defined calving season and see if it is an improvement in that they can be" and to provide the finest heifers available to your cattle operation.

American Pinzgauer Association Board Meeting Teleconference Minutes unapproved

March 6, 2010 In Attendance: Todd Andreshak, Herb Berg, Jerry DeSmidt, Clayton Haskell, Mary Ann Meredith, Donna Laney, Cathy Reich, Pam Shay-Bryant, Kyle Hyder, Lisa Wamsley President Donna Laney called the meeting to order at 8:00 am (Pacific Time). A motion was made to approve the minutes from the last meeting by Lisa Wamsley. Mary Ann Meredith seconded and the motion carried. Clayton Haskell presented the Treasurer’s Report. According to the recent financials, our registrations and transfers are up over last year and the financials look good. Our bad debt is decreasing since we decided to focus on this. We are planning to enforce the APA rules this year by preventing breeders from showing at the National Show unless they are in good standing – financially – with the APA. Clayton reminded us that he cannot hold the position of Treasurer since his two year maximum has been reached, and is willing to work with the next Treasurer for continuity. Pam Shay-Bryant made a motion to approve the financial report; Jerry DeSmidt seconded and the motion carried. Committee Reports: Grievance: Herb Berg reported that there were no grievances pending. Import/Export: Pam Shay-Bryant had no report. National Show: Lisa Wamsley is chairing the National Show committee. The National Show is scheduled for Thursday, September 30 at 9:00 am. The Board meeting will be Wednesday at 10:00 am, with the membership meeting at 1:30 pm, both at the hotel. The town of Tyler, TX is going all out to welcome the event. The fair has also agreed to put up a separate tie-out for the Pinzgauers. Promotion: No report. Rules and Bylaws: A motion was made to clarify the National show rules item 2 to read: “All entries must have legible tattoos that agree with their registration certificates. Tattoos will be checked and verified by an official at the show on the day of arrival against the original registration certificate.” The purpose of this change is to clarify the need for breeders to present their original registration certificate at all shows following the national 12 The Pinzgauer Journal - June 2010

show rules. The motion was made by Pam Shay-Bryant and seconded by Jerry DeSmidt. The motion carried. National Show Rules: The above change in the Rules & Bylaws was initiated by the National Show committee. A recommendation to change the show rules isolating the cow/calf pair class from the rest of the heifer classes was tabled until the Tyler Board meeting. Website: The Board mentioned finding a number of errors on the website. Pam Shay-Bryant will take these to the webmaster for correction. Youth: Lisa Wamsley reported on the Junior Scholarship fund. The paperwork is in process to set up the non-for-profit status. The Board recommended that all applications for scholarships be sent to Lisa directly, and she would forward them to the committee. Pinzgauer Journal report: Donna Laney reported that this latest issue had a number of new advertisers. She asked the secretary to send the Board minutes to the Journal for publication. Breed Field Representative: No report. Old Business: President Laney stated that she had not received any written requests for regional realignment but will present them to the rest of the Board when received. President Laney said that she is in the process of picking a Feature Farm to highlight in the Journal to get that program started so that it would be included in the next Journal. Clayton Haskell discussed the Pinzgauer Certified Beef program. He is awaiting approval from the USDA and will forward that on when he receives it. Todd Andreshak asked for a clarification on the registration status of the subject animal. The Board intended that one of the parents of the subject animal must be a registered Pinzgauer in order to have the offspring considered as Pinzgauer Certified Beef. Lisa Wamsley made a motion for a one-time charge to join the Pinzgauer Certified Beef program of $ 100. Pam Shay-Bryant seconded the motion and the motion carried. Pam Shay-Bryant volunteered to help with a brochure to the breeders outlining the Pinzgauer Certified Beef Program.

President Laney reported that per the Journal’s request, she has asked Kathy Dombrowski to be the clearinghouse for all the show results. She will put them on the APA website and also forward them to the Pinzgauer Journal. President Laney reported on the International Board meeting to be held in the Northwest in 2011. Mathias Kinsberger, the ICPA representative, will be traveling to Oregon this July to help work out the details. New Business: A number of issues were raised to the Board from Mr. Mike Foshee. First, he wanted to re-raise the issue of the conflicting PPB tattoo designations which the Board discussed in September. A motion was made by Todd Andreshak for President Laney to write a letter to Mr. Foshee restating the Board’s position on this matter, and to suggest that he follow the grievance stipulations in the APA Rules and Bylaws if he would like to re-open the issue. Herb Berg seconded the motion and the motion carried. Secondly, Mr. Foshee wanted to pursue allowing black Pinzgauers to show in APA shows. Lastly, Mr. Foshee wanted to challenge the APA for registering purebred and percentage Pinzgauers. Pam Shay-Bryant made a motion to table both these discussions until the Board meeting in Tyler; Lisa Wamsley seconded and the motion carried. Mr. John Uhlman sent in information regarding the start of a Pinzgauer show at the American Royale in Kansas City this year. It is scheduled for October 22. More information will follow. Pam Shay-Bryant invited everyone to the Silver Select Sale May 29. Jerry DeSmidt made a motion to adjourn at 9:50 am; Lisa Wamsley seconded and the motion carried. Respectfully submitted, Pam Shay-Bryant Secretary

American Pinzgauer Association Board Meeting Teleconference Minutes approved

December 9, 2009 In Attendance: Todd Andreshak, Herb Berg, Jerry DeSmidt, Clayton Haskell, Mary Ann Meredith, Donna Laney, Cathy Reich, Pam Shay-Bryant, Jeremy West. Absent: Ken Paul, Kyle Hyder, Lisa Wamsley President Donna Laney called the meeting to order at 8:00 am (Pacific Time). A correction was made to the minutes of the Board Meeting of September 26, 2009 to add Cathy Reich as a Board member in attendance. Jerry DeSmidt made a motion to accept the minutes with this correction; Cathy Reich seconded and the motion carried. Clayton Haskell presented the Treasurer’s Report. According to the recent financials, our registrations are down 10% from prior year and our transfers are down 50%. A discussion was held regarding past due amounts owed to the APA. President Laney said that she would ask the APA office to send out past due notices for the amounts on the Aging Report. Clayton will be sending out the list of past due accounts to the Regional Presidents for them to contact people in their regions or let the office know which accounts are uncollectible. Pam Shay-Bryant made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report; Todd seconded and the motion carried. Committee Reports: Grievance: Herb Berg reported that there were no grievances pending. Import/Export: Pam Shay-Bryant reported that she knew of some APA members who were purchasing cattle from Diamond T in Canada. National Show: Lisa Wamsley is chairing the National Show committee. The show is scheduled for the last of September in Tyler, TX. We will be receiving further information within the week. Promotion: No report. Rules and Bylaws: Nothing to report. National Show Rules: Todd Andreshak wanted the National Show committee to remind all exhibitors to bring their original registration certificates to the National Show instead of photocopies. 14 The Pinzgauer Journal - June 2010

Website: Nothing to report. Youth: No report. Breed Field Representative: No report. Old Business: President Laney discussed the budget and asked if the Board felt that we needed to make any changes to the budget. The results of the discussion were to keep the budget on track and see how the general economy plays out. The idea of having a Feature Farm highlighted in the Pinzgauer Journal each issue was discussed. Cathy Reich made a motion to ask President Laney to randomly pick one region for each issue, and contact the Regional President for suggestions as to which farm to feature. The photos from the article would come from the owner of the farm, but Pam Shay-Bryant volunteered to assist in the writing of the article. Jerry DeSmidt seconded the motion and the motion carried. The plan for promotional products featured by the APA was tabled for future discussion. Todd Andreshak addressed the issue of realigning some of the regions. At the last Board meeting, it was stated that the impetus for any realignments needed to come from the regions in question. He is planning to work with Jeff Cole regarding the absorption of the Eastern region into the Midwest region. The Pinzgauer Journal has asked to have someone from the association be the clearinghouse for all show results. President Laney was going to ask our webmaster, Kathy Dombrowski, to be that person. The Youth non-profit scholarship fund was discussed. Volunteers were solicited to become the Board for the Fund with a commitment of at least five years to get it going and become well-established. The Board was decided as follows: President – Lisa Wamsley, Vice President – Todd Andreshak, Treasurer – Mary Ann Meredith, Secretary – Donna Laney. The functions of the Board of the fund are to secure donations and make decisions on the disbursement of scholarship funds to the APA juniors who apply for those funds. Pam Shay-Bryant volunteered to

work on the draft organizational documents and the not-for profit certification. A motion was made to name this fund the APA Junior Scholarship Fund by Jerry DeSmidt. Todd Andreshak seconded and the motion carried.

send out the annual dues notice and also solicit additional dues from lifetime members. Clayton Haskell brought up the prospect of holding a silent auction at the Nationals to benefit the APA. Jeremy West said plans were underway for that already.

Clayton Haskell discussed the Pinzgauer Certified Beef program. He will be sending all the Board members the proposed final criteria for certification, and will start the process to get the label approved by the USDA.

Mary Ann Meredith asked for clarification regarding the registration of a calf conceived by A.I. The rules as adopted by the Association are that all sires used for A.I. in this breed have to have a DNA sample on file with our testing agency (currently Pfizer). It is the responsibility of the seller of Pinzgauer semen to insure that this sample is on file. Pam Shay-Bryant volunteered to summarize the APA rules on DNA samples for inclusion on the website.

New Business: A discussion on Board member goals ensured. Goals that were identified for the Board this year were: Establish the Certified Pinzgauer Beef program; establish the Junior Scholarship Fund, improve and expand the Pinzgauer Journal, and re-establish contact with and encourage membership from breeders of Pinzgauers who do not now participate in the regional or national association. The Board addressed possible new sources of revenue for the Association. It was decided that there would not be an additional charge for listings in the Breeder’s Directory as that was part of the benefits of being a member of the association. The Board felt that the prospect of a one-time charge for the Certified Pinzgauer Beef enrollment was feasible and would be discussed at the next meeting. President Laney will be reminding the APA office to

2011 International Pinzgauer Congress International Congress – 2011.

Mathias Kinberger will visit in August 2010 to finalize plans for the International Congress tour in the Northwest in Aug. – Sept. of 2011. We have many great ideas for sightseeing, farm visits and even a cattle show. Since this is an APA event hosted by the Northwest, I hope many APA members will make plans to be with us. You won’t be disappointed! It’s a good way to meet breeders from around the world and also to meet our international people from Austria. Look for more about the tour in our next issue. Thanks. Donna Laney

President Donna Laney announced that the next meeting would be a teleconference held on March 6, 2010 at the same time. Jerry DeSmidt made a motion to adjourn at 9:20 am; Todd Andreshak seconded and the motion carried. Respectfully submitted, Pam Shay-Bryant Secretary

Pinzgauers For All Reasons By:Mike Foshee

It is my belief that the Pinzgauer breed has not come close to reaching its total potential as a contributor to not only the beef industry in the United States (and Canada for that matter), but the dairy industry as well. I, as many of you have read countless articles where individuals have stated they “missed the boat” with Pinzguers, or, so much more can be done with Pinzgauers. While I was not purchasing or breeding cattle in the late sixties or seventies: I would agree with both positions. While I am not the only individual in the United States who has crossed Holsteins with Pinzgauers, I ask myself why doing so has not been covered, discussed or written about. My wife and I, along with our children, have been dairy producers since April 1, 1991 (yes I know, April Fools day and in light of the continual $9.90 base price of milk time and again since then…..well, you get the picture) In my opinion, Holsteins in North America has been basically destroyed in the pursuit of milk production. I think I can state milk production has been pursued at the expense of virtually all the basic animal traits. The destruction of mothering ability, grazing ability, calving ability, disease resistance, disease tolerance, day to day vigor, weak calves, calves unable to suckle: the list goes on and on. Many of these topics have been written about prior to my ramblings here. But there seems to be two schools on this in regards to Holsteins. One, lets find Out-cross (Holstein) bloodlines to improve some of these conditions now so prevalent. Two, lets cross breed them. Oh, and I guess there is a third line of thought: lets keep them the way they are so while they give you 28.000 pounds of milk in 365 days, it is okay to have the following vet bills: Displaced Abomasum, Ketosis, milk fever, breed her three to six times or more to settle, trim her feet two or more times a lactation and lets not include pneumonia time and again, late lactation milk fever and from my experience, just a weird and continuous bunch of ailments. I like many dairy producers have tried other breeds and have done some cross breeding with their herds. As you drive around the countryside, if you know your dairy breeds and what resultant crosses look like you will see Jersey cattle in many herds and Jersey Holstein F1 crosses. There are still Guernsey, Milking Shorthorn, Aryshire and Brown Swiss out there to see. I am not familiar with anyone crossing these breeds much with Holsteins but I do spot the occasional Shorthorn Holstein cross. If one knows what they are looking for you will see Normandy Holstein F1 cows on many of the milk producers pasture operations. Looking even closer there is some Brown Swiss Holstein crossing going on but I seldom see them. (I read an article years past out of New Zealand which stated they had to cross the Holsteins there with Brown Swiss because the Holsteins had lost the ability to be efficient grazers) There are many paths a beef producer can take in their operation: seed stock, bull supplier, cow calf sales, feed lot, custom beef production and showing to name some. While my goal has been fullblood seed stock with our Pinzgauer herd I eventually began to reflect on the fact that as a breed the Pinzgauer would still be classed as a dual purpose breed. In fact, Pinzgauer dairy products are produced and sold in Europe and milking Pinzgauers may even be more numerous

16 The Pinzgauer Journal - June 2010

today than Pinzgauer beef (I believe that position changes depending on who you speak with in Austria) Some know I attempted Normandy Holstein crossing some years back and in my way of thinking it was a failure. I never did obtain a Normandy Holstein heifer in over two years of breeding my Holsteins to Normandy bulls, so I simply gave up. Twenty miles away however, a large pasture based herd was able to establish about half of his two hundred milking cows as Normandy Holstein F1’s. And while we utilized the same bulls, his luck of the draw was heifers and lots of them. Mine however was all bulls. While I did not cross Holsteins and Jerseys, I have purchased a few of them in milk and kept them around the past decade. We also have kept a small number of purebred Jerseys as well. About five years ago, I decided I should try crossing a few Holsteins with Pinzgauers. While I will admit I was concerned that what is available in this country is the beef side of the term dual purpose, I was really sick at having to either drag out Holsteins or ship them because they simply cannot overcome much that befalls them. (And when you have to drag a down or dead cow out of a 140 foot barn with 160 feet of chain, the loader tractor….well, I think you get the picture and after one time it gets old very, very fast!) As some of you who know me know, I was able to obtain some old Aristocrat semen and began getting some Holsteins settled and I believed then (as I do now) I had absolutely nothing to loose. When the calves started arriving I initially obtained 75% bull calves and 25% heifers. I know the ole odds are 50/50 but I was thrilled to obtain any heifers after my Normandy disaster! The first round of heifers were black and of course any red animals that hit the ground were bulls. I might add that our Holstein herd is genetically speaking red or red carrier with one or two cows having the black red gene. These F1 animals for the most part “resemble” a Pinzgauer in their marking. They will have a sold colored head, some while on the spine with the while tail, usually white rear feet. Some are flashy marked and others a little more plain. In four or five years of F1 calves hitting the ground, I believe there has been only three not looking kinda sorta like a Pinzgauer. As these calves began to hit the ground there was (and is) a noticeable difference in their behavior when it comes to suckling. These F1’s first hit the ground running just like our fullblood Pinzgauer calves---like one of the commercials on TV today: they got the power! They come out, they get up and start motivating around the barn. And immediately they are ready for a drink! With the rare exception they know what that nipple on the bottle is for and they really go to town. The next thing we noticed right away is that if sweet feed is offered within 24 hours, they will begin to eat it and while it may not be a lot, they are eating solid feed. As with the beef calves I have observed them chewing on grass within 24 hours of birth, these F1’s will also go after hay, haylage and silage within a day or so of birth. So now I have a barn full of Pinzgauer Holstein F1 bull and heifer calves as our initial flush of calves was about a dozen or so in a short

time frame. Well, since I feel the dairyman always takes it on the chin (funny how I am always right on this topic as I received 90 cents free and clear on a beautiful F1 bull calf the other day---ha, still have not cashed that check) when shipping their bull calves I had not sold a one of the F1 bulls. Low and behold a fellow down the road stopped in (who had been admiring our Pinzgauers for years) and asked me if I ever cross a Pinzgauer with a Holstein. With the exception of a few hutches which cannot be seen from either road that borders our farm, no one had seen any of the F1’s at that time. Of course I said sure, would you like to see them? In the barn we go and if he would have had dentures, they would have fallen out of his mouth. He was basically speechless as he looked at the group of calves I had inside the barn. (I should mention I did sell this small producer a Valentime bred heifer the year before and during this visit he informed me he wanted as many “White tails” in his lot and pasture as he could buy) Right then and there he purchase the entire lot of bull calves and paid absolute top dollar for them. We did not suffer any of that $45 a calf nonsense. This producer purchased every F1 bull calf I would sell that year and the next. This was an unexpected bonus in my pursuit of raising and milking some F1 crosses. Another unexpected bonus with these F1 bull calves came because of the way they are marked. I find it interesting so many dairyman milk Holsteins and of course in the United States, most are black. The number of producers who want a Red Holstein(s), a Jersey(s), a Swiss: anything different in their herd is staggering. And to think when we started in 1991 people looked at us like we were nuts for having all the Red Holsteins running around! In the Holstein world, these While Tails are considered Linebacks. And while there are different marking patterns for a Lineback---people are crazy for them at auction when one or more show up. I saw on one occasion a three teat, short extremely fat Lineback marked milk cow (yep, someone was actually milking this thing….) bring $1,700!!!!! So being a little informed about what the masses wanted, I saved a few of the F1 bulls calves back and feed them until they reached 600 pounds. Sent them out to the kind of local monthly feeder sale to see what happened. Well they topped the sale and they did this because dairy producers wanted to put some of that “Lineback” marking into their herd. I made no claims as to what they were or were not. I simply sent both red and black ones and stood back and watched. This too was an unexpected (to a point) bonus in my crossing program. Now we get to the heart of the matter and that is actually milking an F1. We currently milk two and I let one of my friends obtain two. His are about in the same stage of lactation as our two. Five more F1’s are currently settled to freshen in 2010. One of the reasons for cross breeding is hybrid vigor. With my low point of view regarding the state of the Holstein breed, I did this solely for hybrid vigor. Would it, could it make a difference in stamina, health, reproductive efficiency? That was the goal, not what or how they would be marked, or what color they might be when they hit the ground. Here are the things I have discovered during this grand experiment. 1. Growth: I have not seen a Holstein or Pinzgauer have as rapid a growth curve as these F1’s. They have amazing size and they get there darned quick. Our next F1, Red-Hill Marbles which Jill showed a season or two ago is easily in excess of 1,400 pounds. And the next three due also tower above any of the pure Holstein heifers on the farm. To say I am impressed with how these critters grow would be an understatement. 2. Disposition: a more calm and easy to handle heifer and to date

the two which freshened on our farm and the two at our friends were very easy to break to milk. At our place, and this is not an exaggeration, you can’t walk through the cow yard without having to actually push their big behinds out of your way. They come to you, you can pet them in the lot, they follow you around….now I could expect some of this if all of them had been shown but that is not the case. Two Holstein Pinzgauer F1’s and one Jersey Pinzgauer F1 have been shown, but you would think all ten of them had been. 3. Udder quality: udders on all four milking are extremely square and tucked up high, teats evenly and properly spaced. Milk out speed is fast and as the saying goes around dairy land, they milk out like a dishrag. And of course udders can have all shapes and lengths of teats and these are what I considered the perfect length to prep and milk. 4. Confirmation: I was not sure how some of these cattle would look structurally when this all started even though the calves were very showy and dairy in appearance. I have F1’s out of grade and registered Holstein, (as well as Jerserys) with varying confirmation types represented. I can honestly say that these first four F1’s look dairy and as they progress out in their lactation they are not putting on excess body fat. And after milking now for over 19 years, I can say I have had a whole lot of dairy heifers way worse confirmation wise than these F1’s. 5. Milk production: I would rate these in our barn (and my buddy says the same) as good solid milkers. All four of these peaked in the mid-fifties. I would like to throw in at this point I am not a big believer in these 70, 80, 90 pound heifers. I personally believe this is one of the reasons the national age for a dairy cow is three years and about three to five months. Some of the cattle that have stood in our barn the longest number of years were heifers who came in and maybe peaked at forty , forty-five, fifty pounds. And as they stayed in the barn went on to give us those 18,000, 20,000 or more lactations and did it for five, six and in a couple of instances up to and including ten lactations. No one makes money when a cow goes out the door at three and a half years of age!!! (even though some sure thing they do) And so many producers do not realize a bovine does not reach maturity until seven years of age. I believe many Pinzgauer producers have access to Holstein breeders and perhaps Holstein heifers. Offering some of these lineback looking (they are called white tails and or skunks also around this neck of the woods) heifers or bulls “might” work for some to increase their number of animals sold. As the ole saying goes: there is more than one way to skin a cat.

The Junior Gazette

he Midwest juniors should all be getting ready for the Midwest Junior Pinzgauer show Sunday June 6th. The juniors will get a chance to show two days, Saturday at Valley Beef and Sunday will be our junior show. At that time we will get the results of our royalty contest. Last years show was a big success, with eight juniors showing and twenty four head of cattle. In February two juniors attended the Wisconsin Cattlemen’s Association conference they both listened in on some very interesting seminars.

I got a chance to show at a U-W Pioneer Showdown, on April 24th and 25th. I enjoyed showing both days and the judge on Sunday was very complimentary on our breed. July 20th through the 22nd we will have Pinzgauers in the Wisconsin Cattlemen’s Tent at Farm Technology Days along with many other beef breeds. Hopefully our queen and princesses will be there to answer questions and promote our breed. In August a number of Midwest juniors will be showing at the Midwest District show held at the State Fair in Milwaukee. After that we will be looking forward to World Beef Expo.

Ask The Doctor 1. We have a basketball- like thing sticking out the rear of a heifer and it is bright red. Also the rectum is also hanging out. What do we do? (fig. 1) A. Your heifer has a rectal –vaginal prolapse which is common in some breeds, like Herefords, but not so common in Pinzgauer. If you do see this then it is best to call your vet. Otherwise you might try to clean it up with warm water and take your clenched fist and push gently inwards and she will strain against you, but you just firmly push against her, relaxing when she pushes against you. Once you have it in you should not be able to feel anything anymore as it inverts back into the normal place. If she just calved then put in 2-4 urea boluses. You may need it sutured to hold it in, but steady pressure with a clenched fist will do wonders if you are persistent and careful. It works better with a spinal block first however. 2. We found this aborted calf and are not sure what cow it came from. (fig. 2)

A. Take it to a veterinarian and they can take a sample from the stomach (abomasum) and examine some under a microscope for trichomoniasis which they can see. If none, then they should submit it to a lab for other bacterial causes of abortion or fungus (especially if the cattle have had access to moldy hay). 3. We have a cow with retained fetal membranes. What should we do? (fig.3) A. Two things, you can just let it hang even if it goes 7-10 days that is better than trying to remove them. She will breed back better if you do nothing than if they are manually removed. Or, you can clean her up with warm water and try and place 2-4 urea boluses in past the placenta as far as you can reach. The first way is alright (do nothing) as it is amazing how well the uterus of the cow will clean itself up before the next breeding season. 4. The vet says we have a lot of cows that are ready to inseminate but there is nothing going on on the ovaries (fig. 4) What is the problem? A. This is called anestrus due to a lack of proper nutrition. It is fairly common in first-calf heifers if their body condition was not real good when they calved as they will put all their energy to produce milk for their calf and will not cycle until later, or not at all until the calf is weaned. These young females are still growing, producing milk and the reproductive tract comes last. Since two-year old females are about 20% smaller than their full grown herdmates they should be pastured and fed separate from older animals since there is often a lack of feed intake and lowered body condition resulting in delayed return to heat. Don’t forget to worm them on a regular basis to help them grow.

5. Will prostaglandin (Lutalyse or Estrumate) work if we are going to artificially inseminate some of our cows? A. Yes, as long as they are cycling and have a corpus luteum on one of the ovaries (fig. 5). They should respond to heat in 2-5 days so watch them closely and it is wise to chalk the tailhead because if the chalk disappears and you have not seen her in heat then this is almost as good. 6. As I stated in my previous “Ask the Doctor� column I do work for a large bull test station. During the last several years using a Bovine Respiratory Disease vaccination program we had 50-60% of the bulls break with respiratory disease in spite of vaccinating the bulls on arrival. This year we approached the bulls differently. Upon arrival all bulls were given the antibiotic Draxxin subcutaneously and an intranasal vaccine. One week later they were given an intramuscular IBR, BVD, PI3, BRSV, Pasturella/ Mannheimia and Clostridial vaccines and only 10% were sick, a dramatic improvement. 7. We have a large number of our calves that seem to scour within the first month following calving. What can we do to prevent this problem? A. The best way I know is to vaccinate all the heifers, and if necessary, the cows prior to calving with Scour Guard KC4 (Roto & Corona viruses, E. coli and Clostridium perfrigins bacteria). Other than this make sure the calving area is kept clean and spread them out, or move them to clean ground ever so often to prevent heavy contamination of the organisms that cause diarrhea. 8. I recently had a problem with the fetal head back and the cow was down and I could not get the head around to pull the calf. What could I have done (fig. 6)?

her abdomen. Tie her head to a post and pull both back legs behind the cow and have someone pull her tail up over her back (fig. 7). This takes her mind off you a little more and gives you more room inside the pelvis and uterus to put your fingers in the fetal mouth, or nose, and pull the fetal head around.

Fig. 5

Fig. 7 9. We have had several calves hip lock on us when pulling a large calf (fig.8). How can we prevent this from occurring?

Fig. 8 A. In the future if the cow is standing then rotate the fetus once you have the head and front legs out. By this I mean rotate the calf until its sternum is pointed up to the rectum of the cow and that prevents the hips, or stifles, of the calf from locking up. Also if the cow is down you can roll her over on her back and with the fetal extractor pull the calf between her legs and over the udder (fig. 9). When the cow, or heifer, is on her back the fetal pelvis drops down into the wider part of the dams pelvis and frees the hips up allowing the calf to easily be pulled.

Fig. 6 A. These are difficult to deal with, especially without a spinal nerve block to prevent straining. However, here is what you should do next time. The cow is down with her back legs tucked up under

10. I have had problems trying to nurse up calves on some of my heifers. They want to leave the calf, or they are sensitive to letting the baby calf nurse and so they kick it and knock the calf down. What can I do? A. I usually tie the heifer up with a halter and then take a lariat and put a loop around the neck, come back and make a loop in front of the hips and tie that to the fence (fig. 10). This prevents the heifer from kicking the calf. You can then let the calf nurse and you may have to repeat this for a few times until the heifer gets used to the calf nursing her.
