Kansas Angus Association The President’ s Pen Greetings everyone, The sale season is in full swing and I hope everyone will take a little time to go and support your fellow Angus breeders who are having sales, even if you don’t need to buy anything. The discussions of all things cattle and particularly all things Angus, that go on at sales and such functions are some of the most educational as well as entertaining things we do all spring. Besides, your friends and neighbors in the Angus business will appreciate you showing up to add your prestige to the crowd and help fill the bleachers.
Official Publication of the Kansas Angus Association, Inc.
Those of you who enjoy calving in January and February should be wrapped up and know what your spring calf crop will look like. At least through the middle of February this has been about the easiest winter I can remember and it would have been a great year to calve in January. Some famous cow man once said, when January is good for calving, it’s good. But when January is bad it’s a disaster. What a sharp contrast from last year to this. As far as most of us are concerned, it couldn’t have come at a better time with the short hay supplies and high feed prices.

As an association, we haven’t put much emphasis on membership procurement for several years. Regardless of the negative effects of the genetic defects and the economy over the past several years, we still have by far the most complete and popular beef breed going. There is no reason for not having a lot more paid members in our state association. I hope that every one of us will have our antenna up, searching for people who should be members, and we will not be shy about mentioning that fact to them, and then following up with an application. Compared to similar publications, just the Kansas Angus News subscription is worth the price of membership. There are a lot of members of the American association that are not members of our state association. If we had most of those we could more than double in membership. Also if you have suggestions as to how we can make our membership more valuable to producers, please offer your suggestions to any officer or board member. See you on the Angus Trail.
Notes & News from Anne With hopes that spring is just around the corner, I chose the cover photo featuring Angus cattle grazing on green grass. As you anticipate spring rains, warmer days and green grass take a minute to read this issue of the Kansas Angus News. On page 1, two new KAA sponsored commercial Angus female sales are announced. It is the KAA’s mission to promote Angus genetics and to increase demand Angus cattle in Kansas; the board of directors believe that sponsoring these commercial Angus female sales does both. Many of commercial Angus and Angus-influenced females selling will be sired by or bred to registered Angus bulls produced or owned by Kansas breeders. New sales in Ft. Scott and LaCrosse will be held in addition to our long standing sales in Junction City and Pratt. Also on page 1, you will find brief information on the upcoming National Angus Conference and Tour, mark the dates on your calendar and watch for the complete schedule of events and registration information in early summer.

ANGUS INDUSTRY -News provided by American Angus Association ® and Certified Angus Beef® American Angus Association® Updates Program Name to Tonya Amen Joins the Angus Genetics Inc.® Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI) welcomes Tonya Amen as the new Genetic Service MaternalPlus ®
Angus voluntary inventory system receives name revision. The American Angus Association®’s newly introduced PathfinderPlus program, a voluntary, inventory-based reporting system aimed at increasing reproductive trait data, will now be known as MaternalPlus. After suggestions from Association members, the Board of Directors decided this week to change the name to avoid confusion with the previously established Pathfinder program started in 1978 in an effort to identify superior cows in the breed. MaternalPlus contains PathfinderPlus capabilities to capture additional reproductive trait data and to ultimately expand reproductive and lifetime productivity tools, such as longevity measures. “The change is in name only,” says Bill Bowman, Association chief operating officer and director of performance programs. “The MaternalPlus program serves as a unique system that allows us to effectively capture reproductive trait data while providing participants with additional information at weaning processing time, such as calving ease, birth weight and weaning weight EPDs for calves out of inventoried cows.” Breeders interested in participating in MaternalPlus can enroll through AAA Login, available at www.angus.org. “MaternalPlus is the most comprehensive route to generate reproductive selection tools on your herd,” Bowman says. “The program is streamlined to capture the necessary data for genetic predictions to assist you and your customers.” Contact the American Angus Association at 816-383-5100 or visit www.angus.org for more information.
NJAA Board of Directors Attend YBIC The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) Board of Directors attended the 2012 Youth Beef Industry Congress (YBIC), Feb. 2-4 in Nashville, Tenn. The biennial event, themed “Hitting the High Note,” gathered more than 125 junior beef breed and state cattlemen organizations. The YBIC conference is a great opportunity for the NJAA Board of Directors to create relationships amongst fellow beef leaders and industry professionals who will help them lead to a better future,” says Robin Ruff, director of junior activities. “The junior board today will be the beef industry leaders of tomorrow, and we need to prepare them with the adequate knowledge and experience to make them successful.” Designed for youth leaders in the beef industry, the 2012 YBIC was sponsored by the U.S. Beef Breeds Council and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). The YBIC conference was held in conjunction with the 2012 Cattlemen’s Convention and featured youth’s involvement in the future of agriculture. “People don’t care how much you know, but want to know how much you care,” said Andrew McCrea, keynote leadership speaker and teambuilding facilitator for YBIC from Maysville, Mo. McCrea informed attendees of the role they can play as the next generation of beef leaders. During teambuilding session, juniors were able to meet new people from across the nation. They also participated in a beef quiz bowl game to test their industry knowledge. On Thursday night, NJAA Directors met with Nashville’s entertainment correspondent Ashlie Kolb and Neil Mylet, founders of LoadOut Technologies. As young professionals, Ashlie and Neil encouraged the audience to follow their dreams. Friday morning began with a research panel addressing feed efficiency. Speakers were Dr. Matt Spangler, University of Nebraska; Dr. Dan Shike, University of Illinois; and Dr. Bob Weaber, Kansas State University. The panel also covered future challenges for the industry, including the increased food production needed to feed the world population expected to double by 2050. Following the panel, the group went to the Cattle Industry Convention to visit the Cattlemen to Cattlemen television set, participate in a trade-show scavenger hunt, and listen to NCBA staff members talk about involvement in the organization. Friday evening ended with “Cowboy’s Night at the Grand Ole Opry.” Attendees listened to country music legends Charlie Pride, The Oak Ridge Boys, Del McCoury band, Josh Turner and more. Troy and Stacy Hadrick, cattle ranchers from Faulkton, S.D., met with the group on Saturday and spoke on behalf of their company, Advocates for Agriculture, and explained how to prepare a 30-second elevator speech. Angus junior members and advisors participating in the event were: Clay Williams, Georgia; Austin Brandt, Iowa; Alisha Nord, Minnesota; Lindsey Grimes, Ohio; Garrett Knebel, Indiana; Shane Clary, Virginia; JanLee Rowlett, Tennessee; Sally Yon, South Carolina; Meghan Blythe, Kansas; Kelli Retallick, Wisconsin; Megan Ahearn, Texas; and Jennifer Ewing, Illinois.
