iggles of sweet young boys and girls fill the barn at my in-law’s house as fall and the holiday season approaches. This time of year lends itself to more family time, and as many of you can relate, more family time in the barn. During this season, some of my nieces are just old enough to make their splash in the show ring, while the other nieces and nephews are counting down the days. They are all growing up in different places, but one thing which unites them are the sheep at Pa and Geema’s house. While Gabe and I don’t have kids of our own yet, I am encouraged to see how many people are placing emphasis on youth development within the livestock industry for my favorite little sheep showmen, and future showmen, to reap benefit. The pages of my third issue of the Southdown Journal simply exemplify the many things the American Southdown Breeders’ Association and members are doing to improve the breed and invest in youth. Outstanding junior members are in the spotlight, and big plans to continue expanding opportunities for juniors in the breed are announced. We highlight many of the most elite breeders in the country through advertising, as well as provide insight to the latest in Southdown happenings. The emphasis on investing in youth will only be further illustrated during the 137th Annual Meeting of the ASBA, shows and other activities during the North American International Livestock Exposition. Don’t miss the opportunity to step onto the green chips, make new friends, and rekindle relationships with old ones. With the help of the ASBA staff members, board of directors and breeders, this could be the best issue yet, and I hope you feel the same. SJ

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

W

BY: JJ MADDOX

ow! Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun. It was just a few short months ago when we left Louisville with new thoughts and ideas for the upcoming year. The Board of Directors made the decision to hire Stephanie Formo as our new Southdown Junior Coordinator to help oversee the ever-growing junior program. Stephanie has done a tremendous job getting the junior members involved with programs such as the logo contest for T-shirts which were handed out to all junior members at the National Junior Show this summer. She has also asked the junior members to write blogs about their Southdown flocks and experiences with the breed. Southdown sheep have sold extremely well online and at live auctions this year — with many finding new homes with new families to the breed. Our junior members continue to impress us with the numbers of sheep they are exhibiting at the National Futurity Kick-Off Show in April and the AllAmerican Junior Show in July. Our breed had the largest breed show again this year at the All-American in Hutchison, Kan. State fairs across the nation report increased numbers in exhibitors and sheep. With this being said, I believe the number of Southdown sheep exhibited at the North American International Livestock Expo (NAILE) in November should be very impressive, so make plans now to attend the greatest show on green shavings. The Southdown breed has been the largest show there for the past few years. The Board of Directors continue to come up with new ways to get more junior members involved with

this wonderful breed. This year, the Board of Directors launched a new program called the Southdown Showdown Showmanship Futurity which seems to have been well received so far with participation numbers high. The program is new, and we are finding some issues as applications are received in the American Southdown Breeders’ Association (ASBA) office which will need to be addressed and corrected this year, but this is a great opportunity for Southdown showmen to get involved in the Futurity programs. As we close yet another successful year in the Southdown breed, the number of registrations and transfers have been very strong — keeping our Secretary extremely busy. To me, this is a strong indication the Southdown breed is continuing to grow in popularity and is quickly becoming the breed of choice for many new young families wanting to get started in the sheep industry. In closing, I would like to thank each and every Southdown member for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your President. The first year as your American Southdown Breeders’ Association (ASBA) President has been a learning experience at times, but with help from the many of you, I have made it through. My family is truly blessed to be a part of this great organization and we love our Southdown family. I look forward to visiting with our members and getting new thoughts and ideas from each of you to make this Association the best it can be. Keep up the great work ASBA! SJ

LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY BY: GARY JENNINGS

E

veryone likes to hear good news, and I am no exception! I have truly enjoyed hearing the results from across the country on the results of Southdown shows from coast to coast. I continually hear news such as…biggest show in memory, deepest classes in years, supreme champions of the overall show, and the list goes on. There is no doubt we are in great times for this breed. As breed secretary for the past 30 years, I have seen states blossom from very few Southdowns at their state fairs to Southdowns as the predominant breed in their state. I know very well this success comes from the work of breeders and families across America who have chosen this breed and who have promoted and encouraged other families to raise Southdowns. My thanks to each of you for your dedication. Just recently, I have had calls from families needing promotional materials to put in display booths about the Southdown breed at their fairs, or families who need our logo to put on promotional items they are giving away to all those who show Southdowns. My thanks to you for your dedication. This all leads me to the fact that many years ago, I realized the secret to the success of any livestock breed is not entirely the animals, but most importantly, the people who raise them. We are blessed in this breed to have many exceptional individuals who have chosen to raise Southdowns and give of their time to the association. Starting in 1989, I have had the privilege of becoming acquainted with such inspirational people. I could give you a list of those individuals, but I would leave out a name in the writing of this article, and it

is a rather personal list of friends who I treasure from these many years. Many of these individuals who come to my mind are those who have laid the ground work for the success we, in the Southdown breed, see today. In 2007 Tracy Repasky initiated the Spirit of the Breed award to honor people who have significantly impacted Southdowns — beyond the “Call of Duty.” From that year’s recipient of Gary Kwisnek, Pennsylvania, to last year’s recipient of Larry McGuire, Minnesota, some outstanding individuals have been recognized. I wish the association had started the Spirit of the Breed award years before. Each of the past twelve recipients are exceptional and have done something special to make Southdowns unique, to make the breed better, and to give of their time and efforts for all. I encourage you to turn to the Spirit of the Breed page in this publication. If you know one or more of these individuals, thank them for their service. If you have the opportunity, take the time to visit with them about Southdowns. You will be glad you did. Finally, if you know someone who would be the perfect addition to this list, let us know. We want to honor, to thank, and to recognize such people. I sincerely hope you have enjoyed this year with your Southdowns and many of you are planning to be a part of the year’s final show at the North American. Look through the schedule of events and plan a trip to Louisville to watch the junior show, the open show, the Stars Sale, or the annual meeting. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to see some of the best Southdowns and individuals the breed has to offer. What a fitting end to another great year for this breed! SJ

JUNIOR COORDINATOR DISCUSSION

I

BY: STEPHANIE FORMO

am so excited to have been given the opportunity to work alongside of all of the great breeders, board members, and families involved in the Southdown breed. I grew up in Metro Detroit, about as far from agriculture and livestock as you can get! I had just graduated from Michigan State (go Spartans!) when I met my husband, Reid, who has always been passionate about agriculture and livestock, and the last 14 years have sped by! We have three kids, Kaitlyn, Drew and Caleb (ages 13, 11, and 9) who have been a driving force behind our decision to become involved with Southdowns. Reid grew up showing cattle, pigs and club lambs in southwest Minnesota, but we decided Southdowns were a little more manageable for us with three young kids, his career as an engineer, and homeschooling all three kids at the time! Besides hanging out with my family, I lead the youth ministry at our church, love eating good food, (I do live in Wisconsin!) and try to convince Reid to take vacations to warm, sunny places as often as I can — which is not as often as I would like! I am still learning a lot about the industry, so this year has been another level of intensity as I jumped into this role. So far in 2019, I have stayed busy organizing our American Junior Southdown Association (AJSA) Spring Spectacular Sale, running our Spring Futurity Kickoff, launching the new Showmanship program, helping at the All American, organizing the contest with free T-Shirts for our juniors (funded from our AJSA online sale) and getting ready for the Louisville junior social and skillathon! I have many more ideas for the future, but I am trying not to get too far ahead of myself! I’m

so grateful for the amazing volunteers and committee members who have really encouraged me and continue to teach me through this first year! Working with junior members is a passion of mine, so if you ever have any ideas you’d love to see us offer the youth, please don’t hesitate to come and talk to me. I look forward to meeting more of you this coming year! If you are not receiving our Southdown Scoop newsletters, send me an email at stephanieformo@ gmail.com, and I will make sure to get you added to our database! We also post to our AJSA Facebook account, Instagram page, and are trying to include more YouTube videos relevant to youth! The Southdown Showdowns program is our attempt at encouraging kids who may not be able to participate in the Futurity program every year to be involved with our great association at ZERO cost to the juniors and breeders. This program will largely be funded by the American Southdown Breeders’ Association (ASBA) this year, with some of the funding coming from our online AJSA sale. We knew launching it this year would be ambitious, but the board was committed to working through the bumps along the way! We really want this to be a fun program to encourages kids to get out and use Southdowns for their showmanship animals! Our awards for this will be highend embroidered, personalized jackets for the top kids in each age division. You can read all about the program on our website, but we will be revising the point system and some of the guidelines at Louisville for the next show year. If you have participated already, fantastic! If not, there’s still time to submit points for this year! Either way, we would love your constructive feedback on this program. We have loved the feedback received on our T-Shirts this year! We plan to hold another contest this winter, and to continue this tradition next year. Our board approved purchasing the shirts, even when the cost was in excess of the money we raised from the online sale. This year we gave away more than we expected and unfortunately completely ran out of the adult size shirts, even after a second reorder! I know there are families who weren’t able to attend any ASBA sponsored events that would like the opportunity to get shirts for their families, and we are hoping to work through some of that next year to enable everyone who wants one, to get one. We do have a few youth size smalls available (size 8-10) so if you have a young one that wants one, please shoot me an email and we will get it out to you! SJ

2019 NATIONAL SOUTHDOWN SALE | SEDALIA, MO. JUNE 27, 2019

A SUMMER MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AMERICAN SOUTHDOWN BREEDERS’ ASSOCIATION BY: GARY JENNINGS

T

he annual summer meeting of the Board of Directors of the American Southdown Breeders’ Association was held June 27, 2019, on the fairgrounds of the Missouri State Fair. The meeting was held in conjunction with the National Southdown Sale, which was part of the Midwest Stud Ram Sale. Those directors present were J.J. Maddox, Mike Crowder, Jim Davis, Barbara Bishop, and Jeff Repasky. Joining the meeting via teleconference were Claudette Choma, Brian Forsee, Ed Keeny, John Nixon, L.C. Scramlin, Jessy Shanks, and Stephanie Formo. President J.J. Maddox called the meeting to order at 1:00 p.m. It was moved by Patty Abell to approve the minutes of the previous meeting as submitted. With a second by Jim Davis, the motion was approved. The Executive Secretary gave a short report on the financial status of the association as of June 15, 2019. It looked to be another good year for the association with work in the office to be busy. The financial report was moved to be accepted by Jim Davis and seconded by Mike Crowder. The motion passed. At this time Dan and Carol Willoughby of W Livestock Sales met with the board and discussed sales for the coming year. It was noted the female sale at Richmond, Indiana, in April had been a big success and that Stephanie Formo had done a great job with the junior events. Also discussed was the location of the event for 2020, and the increased cost of moving to a larger building. The dates being considered for 2020 were April 18th and April 19th. Furthermore, there was discussion on a possibility of another sale on the 2nd or 3rd weekend of June to be held in either Kansas City or Indianapolis. It would be a sale for only slick sheared sheep and would include an all-breed junior show for females and market lambs. Stephanie Formo added that the sale and junior show in Richmond, Indiana, had been well attended. There were over 50 juniors who participated. The facilities were crowded, and the educational part conducted by board members was very well done. The Executive Secretary presented to those present, a copy of the new brochure concerning genetic concerns in the breed. This brochure will be present at upcoming events and mailed to new association members. Jim Davis of the National Sale Committee, reported that 130 head of Southdowns were consigned to the National Southdown Sale.

Barbara Bishop of the National Junior Show Committee, noted the 457 head of Southdowns were entered in the National Southdown Junior Show with a total of 135 exhibitors. The show will be held the next week in Hutchinson, Kansas, with the All-American Sheep Show. L.C. Scramlin from the Policy and Procedure Committee, moved to put Ohio and Pennsylvania together in Region 3, District 3 and move West Virginia to Region 3, District 4. With a second by Jim Davis, the motion passed. Under new business, the Executive Secretary presented the proposed schedule for the printing of the 2019 Southdown Journal. The schedule was agreed upon as proposed. Barbara Bishop brought up the issues within the breed on the duplication of christened names. After discussion, it was moved by Patty Abell to replace the current policy on christening with the following: The breeder has sole ownership of christened ram and ewe names upon paying the current charge for each name and has submitted the original registration paper for recording the christened name for each. The christened name must not conflict with the name of any other ram or ewe registered with the Association, either living or dead, and may not be used again. The Association shall maintain a public record of all christened names on the Association website to be updated at the end of each fiscal year. With a second by John Nixon, the policy changes were passed. The Southdown “Show-Down” program was then discussed. There was concern over the awarding of points for exhibitors who did not place in showmanship classes. After some discussion, it was decided to wait until the end of the program this year and make appropriate changes to the point schedule in the informal meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. The Executive Secretary was asked to check on the cost of online bidding for the Stars of Louisville Sale to be held in Louisville and report back to the chairman of the Stars Sale Committee. With no possible issues anticipated by the board on the implementation of the November/December classes for ewe and ram lambs, the Executive Secretary was asked to contact the management at the North American Livestock Exposition show about the addition of these classes to the 2020 National Southdown Show. With no further business to conduct, a motion was given by Patty Abell and seconded by Barbara Bishop to adjourn. The meeting adjourned at 3:00 p.m. SJ

I

t is a current trend in the livestock industry to denote the parentage of a particular animal by using name recognition. This name gives a dam or a sire notoriety and is much easier to recall than a number. However, to avoid confusion and duplication of names, there is a need to set forth some specificity of exactly which animal is being referenced. Therefore, the American Southdown Breeders’ Association allows the option to “Christen” those elite ewes and rams that are deserving of more than just a number. At the summer board meeting in Sedalia, Missouri, this past June 2019, the following changes were made to the ASBA Policy and Procedures. 134.6 The breeder has the sole ownership of christened ram and ewe names upon paying the current charge for each name and has submitted the original registration paper for recording the christened name for each. The christened name must not conflict with the name of any other ram or ewe registered with the association, either living or dead, and may not be used again. 134.7 The ASBA shall maintain a public record of all christened names on the association website to be updated at the end of each fiscal year.

Please be advised that only officially christened names should be used in advertising and sale listings. Additionally, no “pet names” can be used as the Name and Private Number in registering an animal. A number must be included that matches the ear tag number in that animal being registered. In summary, breeders should follow the following steps in christening a sheep. 1. Check the website at www.southdownsheep.org and use the drop down Registrations and click on Christened Sheep to view names used for the last 30 years. Names are alphabetical. 2. If the name you desire to use is not on that list, submit that name to the association office along with the animal’s original registration paper and payment of the christening fee. 3. A new registration paper with the christened name will then be returned to you. That name will appear on any offspring paper for 5 generations. Any further questions can be answered by contacting the ASBA office either by phone or email. SJ

Congratulations to the George Family

JUNIOR SPOTLIGHT M

Mackenzie Padgett

ackenzie Padgett grew up in Kirklin, Indiana, a small town of roughly 800 people. Born and raised around sheep, Mackenzie entered the show ring for the first time at the All American Junior Show at only four years old, with her family’s newly purchased Southdown. A few months later, she debuted at her first North American International Livestock Expo, and she hasn’t looked back since! This year at the AAJS in Kansas, Mackenzie reached a long-time goal of hers and won the highly competitive Top Gun award. The Top Gun placing is determined by a combination of your top fourteen class placings, promotional contests, skillathon, judging contest, wool show and showmanship. “I only have one year left to show at the AAJS. About three years ago, I really started going after the Top Gun award,” Mackenzie shared. “Last year, I was really close, I did all of the promotional contests, brought a full set of lambs. When I saw how close I came, it motivated me to try even harder this year.”

Mackenzie doesn’t shy away from hard work. This fall, she will return to Kansas State University to complete her bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics with a minor in pre-law. She hopes to continue her education and earn a law degree so she can work on international trade and policy. When she isn’t studying, participating in promotional contests, or working in the barn with her sheep, she also serves as president of the Midwest Junior Preview Show, President of the Indiana Southdown Junior Association, and was the Indiana FFA District 5 President and Reporter. “I continue to just set goals for myself. Whether it’s breeding, feeding, showmanship, I just want to continue making progress,” Mackenzie noted. “Success to me is making sure I am moving forward. When there’s a failure or a setback, I don’t let myself quit. My advice to junior members would be to never give up on your goals. Even when they seem impossible, set little goals to get there. Success isn’t always winning your class; it’s not quitting and continuing to work towards progress.” SJ

“If you’re not passionate about it- don’t do it.”

JUNIOR SPOTLIGHT I

Preston Forsee

n 1925, the same year Chrysler was founded, Sears Roebuck opened its first brick and mortar department store in Chicago, and The Grand Ole Opry began broadcasting, another legacy began in a small town in Kentucky. Ninety-five years ago, W.T. Forsee purchased his first Southdown lamb and sparked a passion which has shaped generations of people in his family, including Preston Forsee, his great-great grandson. Preston’s ancestors may have started the process, but it’s Preston’s love of agriculture and livestock that drives the operation now. At the age of four months, Preston was carted off to his first state fair and hasn’t slowed down since. “When I was younger, going to livestock shows, it was just what my family did. It was our family time together. But when I was 14 or 15, I had grown a bit by then, and it really hit me that it’s something I wanted to do,” Preston recalled. “Right around that time, we went to Sedalia and I stood dead last in a class. That moment really triggered me. I remember thinking- I do not like being here. I need to push myself to be the best I can be.” Competition with his older sister also spurred Preston on. “As I got a little taller, I was actually able to compete with my sister, and I just wanted to get better so I could beat her one day!”

This year at the All-American Junior Show, Preston was presented with the Premier Exhibitor award. This award is given to the exhibitor who exhibits the eight highest placing animals. But Preston doesn’t want to stop here. Looking to next year already, he really hopes to make a run for the top gun award. “Success isn’t just winning that big show- it’s setting goals, working to achieve them and helping others along the way,” he noted. “My dad has always preached that we need to make sure we are always setting goals, working hard to achieve them, and paying attention to the details. It’s the details that really make or break your achievement.” Preston takes that advice seriously. Just a few of his goals include running a 500-head ewe operation on his own in the near future, along with growing his show pig operation, winning grand champion with his steer at the state fair, and continuing to expand what his dad has already built with the Southdown flock. Both his admiration for his family and competitive nature really have defined Preston’s childhood, and continue to define his future, “I really admire my dad and what he’s done. I want to do what he’s been able to do with the farm, just times two.” SJ

“I wouldn’t be where I am without the support and guidance of my family”

UNDERSTAND THE CODE IDENTIFYING POSSIBLE GENETIC CONCERNS While the American Southdown Breeders’ Association is committed to ensuring that the Southdown breed of sheep maintains its integrity to the Standard of Excellence set forth by the ASBA Board of Directors, genetic defects are a possibility for any producer. The goal of the ASBA is to greatly reduce the occurrence of known defects in Southdowns. Consequently, the purpose of this brochure is to inform breeders about some of the known defects that have been genetically identified in the breed and sheep in general. The ASBA Board of Directors has set forth policies regarding the show and sale of Southdowns that carry the genetic chromosomal alleles that contribute to increased occurrence of the defects explained on the back of this publication. Q: What is the current American Southdown Breeders’ Association policy concerning genetic defects? A: The ASBA strongly encourages all breeders of Southdowns to discriminate against known genetic defects. Sheep shown and/or sold in the open and junior shows of the North American International Livestock Exposition, the National Southdown open and junior shows and the All-American when designated as a national junior show must be a non-carrier of Hereditary Chondroysplasia (Spider Syndrome) and Ectodermal Dysplasia (“Hairy Lamb Syndrome”). DNA on all champion and reserve champion ewes and rams is collected by the ASBA and submitted for testing. Q: What do the codes NN, Nn, nn, EDF, EDC mean? A: NN, Nn, nn are the letters used to designate the presence of the “Spider” gene. NN indicates the animal does not carry the “Spider” gene; Nn indicates the animal is not a “Spider” , but it carries the “Spider” gene and could produce offspring that could produce a “Spider” and carriers if mated with another carrier; nn indicates the animal is a “Spider”. A: EDF and EDC are letters used to designate the presence of the “Hairy Lamb” gene. EDF indicates the animal is free from the “Hairy Lamb” gene, whereas EDC indicates the animal is a carrier of the “Hairy Lamb” gene and could produce offspring carrying or exhibiting the defect if mated with another carrier. Q: Do Southdowns I raise have to be DNA tested in order to be registered? A: No, sheep do not have to be DNA tested in order to be registered. However, testing offspring reduces the risk for buyers and will assist in mating animals to reduce the chances of possible genetic defects. Q: Do I need to DNA test Southdowns that I purchase? A: If a seller provides you with DNA results on an individual, you most likely do not need to retest. If the seller has not DNA tested the individual, the only way you will definitely know the DNA is to test it. Q: How do I get a DNA test done? A: Genetic testing can done in one of the following ways: Drawing Blood, an Ear Punch, or a Blood Sample Card. For more specific information visit the following: https://southdownsheep.org/education/genetic-testing/ Q: Where should I send my DNA samples for analysis? A: Genetic tests for Hereditary Chondrodysplasia (Spider), Ectodermal Dysplasia ( Hairy Lamb Syndrome), and Callipyge Gene are available at the following commercial labs. The labs should be contacted directly for blood sampling procedures and pricing information: http://www.genecheck.com/ http://www.genalysislaboratory.com/sheeptest.htm http://www.neogen.com/GeneSeek/index.html

27 | FALL 2019 AMERICAN SOUTHDOWN JOURNAL


Hereditary Chondrodysplasia “Spider Syndrome” — NN Nn nn Spider syndrome is a condition that was first reported in Suffolk and Suffolk crossbred sheep in the United States in the popular press and the scientific literature in the mid-1980’s. Spider lambs have severe bone deformities throughout the entire skeleton that are manifested at birth or within 30 days of age. The most noticeable condition is an outward bending of the front legs from the knees, with many lambs also having a crooked spine in the thoracic area and a marked Roman nose. Spider syndrome is due to a single allele (n) that is completely recessive to the dominant allele (N) for normal skeletal development. Sheep that are homozygous for the spider allele (nn) exhibit spider syndrome and are so deformed that no producer would retain one for breeding, and even if retained, the probability of a successful mating would be very low. Therefore, spider syndrome lambs almost always result from mating two normal appearing, but heterozygous, individuals. The Spider locus is found on Sheep Chromosome 6. There is a DNA test that can identify the presence or absence of the spider gene and this test is used to differentiate between normal appearing animals that are carriers (Nn) or non-carriers (NN) of the spider syndrome gene. *Excerpt taken from: “Tools Available to Wisconsin Sheep Producers for Genetic Improvement of Their Flocks”. By David L. Thomas, Extension Sheep Specialist, Department of Animal Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Ectodermal Dysplasia ( Hairy Lamb Syndrome) — EDF EDC Definition: Ectodermal Dysplasia is a genetic defect that affects the ectodermal layer of embryologic development. This layer is associated with development of skin, hair, teeth and hooves. Affected individuals have fine, white, straight hair instead of thick, crimped wool. The skin is thinner than normal with abnormal sebaceous and sweat glands. These lambs are quite frequently parrot‐mouthed and often have abnormalities associated with the teeth. While some affected individuals may be vigorous at first, they are very subject to stress (temperature, docking, weaning etc…) and most die within a few days to weeks. Genetics: ED is a simple autosomal recessive defect with only homozygous recessive individuals being affected. Heterozygous individuals (carriers) have one normal gene and one defective gene. When carriers are mated they will produce affected individuals 25% of the time, carriers 50% of the time and homozygous normal individuals 25% of the time. This gene was mapped using state of the art “SNP chip” technology that was unavailable a few years ago. It can simultaneously screen > 50,000 gene markers per animal. It is a very specific and accurate test that not only identified the gene but allowed for identification of the specific base pair on the DNA strand. This gene mutation has been associated with similar defects in over 20 known species such as: humans, macaques, gibbons pandas dogs horses tilapia and mice just to name a few.

Callipyge Gene In recent years a trend has been identified by a number of concerned Southdown producers regarding the sale of Southdown breeding animals and wethers that carry a genetic mutation that is characterized by muscle hypertrophy (double muscling). Breeding of this particular mutation, which was discovered over 30 years ago in Oklahoma, has far reaching implications for not only the Southdown breed but the whole sheep industry as well. In 1983 a Dorset ram lamb was born that when bred produced excessive muscle development. The ram, who was later named “Solid Gold,” was bred extensively and his offspring were scattered throughout the country. In subsequent years extensive research involving his descendants determined that the excess muscling was due to a mutated gene that was named the “Callipyge Gene”. Callipyge comes from the Greek word meaning “Beautiful Buttocks”. In addition, the gene was found to exhibit a unique inheritance pattern termed “Polar Over-dominance”. The gene is only expressed when the offspring acquire a copy of the mutation from the sire. If the offspring acquires two copies of the gene (one from the dam and one from the sire), the gene will not express itself. If the offspring receives a copy of the mutation from the dam, the gene will not express itself. A ewe purchased with the double muscling trait will not produce a double muscled offspring. When the mutation was first studied, it was thought to be a great breakthrough for sheep producers because it caused a great increase in the production of lean red meat. However, subsequent research revealed that the proteins and muscle fibers in affected animals were dramatically different from normal sheep muscle. The muscle (particularly the loin muscle) in affected animals was found to be significantly less tender than normal. As a result, packers discriminate against the meat from animals that have the mutation due to concerns that the consumer will be less likely to buy lamb if this mutation is widely distributed. In addition, while lambs born with the gene do not initially exhibit excessive muscling, reports from some breeders who have had experience with these animals feel that they are more difficult to lamb out due to the excessive muscle of the dam decreasing the diameter of the birth canal.

PARASITE PROBLEMS RESOLVED

P

BY: BOYD BRADY

arasitism is widely accepted as the most significant impediment to raising goats and sheep in the southeastern United States and abroad. Reduced production, preventative/veterinary treatment costs, and deaths in the herd lead to substantial economic deficits in operations. This problem is compounded in the Southeast because of the climatic conditions that allow nematode populations to flourish. The barber pole worm, Haemonchus contortus, is arguably the gastrointestinal nematode that causes the most harm in goats and sheep. This parasite has a high reproductive potential, and all life stages feed on blood. As a result, anemia, anorexia, weakness, loss of production (growth and milk), and death can occur. Other internal parasites that have negative effects on young animals include coccidia (protozoa). External parasitism in the form of lice, mites, and ticks can also contribute to significant loss of production. Some external parasites can be disease vectors in goats and sheep. Clinical signs of parasitism include the following: rough hair coat; bottle jaw (edema under jaw); pale mucous membranes in lower eyelid; unpelleted feces; listlessness; and weight loss. Control Strategies Implement genetic selection from animals within the herd or flock that have a natural resistance. Graze cattle or horses with goats/sheep on the same pasture. Cattle and horses do not tend to share the same gastrointestinal parasites as

goats/sheep. Instead, they serve as dead-end hosts for many GI parasites of goats and sheep. Allow periods of pasture rest of 60 days between grazing periods. Graze taller forages (greater than 2 inches), as most parasite larvae will be picked up closer to the base of the grass. Plant tannin-rich forages, such as Sericea lespedeza, birdsfoot trefoil, and chicory, for animals to graze. Tannins have been shown to decrease total fecal egg counts and decrease hatchability of those eggs. Provide areas of browse (especially with goats) to decrease the amount of parasite eggs that are consumed from grazing forages.Harvest hay off of pastures to decrease the overall worm burden. Maintain a low stocking density (8 to 10 animals/acre). Avoid grazing of clean pastures (that is, no animals on this area for the past 6 to 12 months) after deworming to decrease resistance among on-farm populations of parasites. Provide excellent nutrition all year to support the immune system. Production losses to internal and external parasites are a major problem facing most goat and sheep operations. The development of resistance to commercially available anthelmintics and the lack of new products on the market compound these losses. Every operation must manage parasites and fight to slow resistance in worm populations. Please consult your veterinarian to develop a parasite management plan for your operation.
