nce in a while, I struggle to come up with an idea on which to base this column. Sometimes I have an idea in mind for weeks, other times it just “hits” me at the last minute. So when someone volunteers to write one for me…I would be crazy to turn them down. That’s what happened this time. Our Southeast Director Trevor Lienemann asked if he could contribute something to this issue, and I gladly accepted. You can find his “column” under Director’s Corner which starts on page 3. Who knows, this may turn into something new where each director is asked to contribute their input once during their tenure on the board. Time will tell…and Thank you Trevor for your contribution to this issue. Until Next time….

Director’s Corner By:

Trevor Lienemann, Southeast Director

A

Dear Cattle Producers, s you are all aware the Nebraska Angus Association is a member run organization structured to provide programs, services and leadership to enhance the genetics of the Angus breed, expand its influence within the beef industry, and broaden the market for superior tasting, highquality Angus beef worldwide. While I understood this, the past year’s events have made this even more evident. I can’t help but feel privileged to be associated with such an organization, and have the fortune to live in the heart of beef country. We at Lienemann Cattle hope the summer was good to you, your family, and your cattle. It seems as if all areas of the country have made significant strides as it relates to grass, hay and crop production. Cows appear in great condition, and all classifications of cattle are creating all-time highs. This is terrific, and well deserved for you as beef producers. As well, it appears all segments of the beef industry are profitable and will be into the foreseeable future. Keep making those high-quality Angus cattle, and you will reap the rewards. Programs and leadership activities kept us busy much of the summer; our summer was filled with local, state, national, and international excitement. We hosted the Nebraska Junior Angus show at the Gage County Fair Grounds with great success and boasted the largest attendance in years, of excited young beef leaders from across the State. Many of those

same juniors attended the National show in Kansas City with much success and top honors earned. Additionally, our ranch was toured by, and hosted visitors from the state of Sichuan in China in June, and cattle producers and beef processors from Turkey in July. In August we sold a group of our Registered Angus Bred Heifers for delivery to Kazakhstan. Furthermore, we saw many friends and customers at Husker Harvest Days through the Nebraska Angus display pens. Of course there was also the Cattlemen’s Classic, State Fair, Angus Tour, and many sales published through the “NE Angus News” along the way. All made possible through your Nebraska Angus Association. A tremendously proud moment was in July, when Maci competed with collegiate youth from across the nation, and earned the position of American Angus Association Ambassador. In this role, she will travel the nationally in attendance of National Beef Industry events for the promotion and advancement of Angus Cattle. As I reflect upon these events, experiences, honors, and transactions with excitement, I am humbled by all that has been given to our family and cattle operation through our membership in the Nebraska Angus Association and friends therefrom. As directors within the Association, we often ask, “What more can we do to provide service and value to the membership?” While that is always a

goal we need to challenge ourselves with, I encourage you to take advantage of the plethora of opportunities currently available to propel your business and Angus cattle forward. If you become involved and give back to the association, good things will come. Take advantage of the Association and all it has to offer! The annual meeting will be held December 7th in Kearney, NE. This event always provides for quality education, fellowship, and entertainment. Hope to see you there! It is also with much excitement, I look forward to attendance of the American Angus Association annual meeting of the in Louisville, KY, next month. Our Nebraska elected delegates will represent you as Nebraska Angus producers at the national level through policy and leadership elections. As a sneak peak forward to the 2014 Annual Meeting in Kansas City, you can expect the State of Nebraska and its Angus Cattle to be very, very well represented. It will be great to have an event of this magnitude close to home. We are excited about the future of the Angus Business, and wish all of you the best in the upcoming seasons. Sincerely, Trevor L. Lienemann Southeast Director

President Speaks

I

By:

Clayton Glause, NAA President

Greetings Cattlemen,

’m confident that this fall finds our state’s beef producers in better condition than last year! Most hay crops have faired much better, and as fall harvest is underway, we are gratefully seeing much better crop yields than a year ago. In turn, our feed costs in general have softened some. The late summer and fall moisture has been a blessing and should help conditions going into next season. We are all aware that the lingering drought in the south 2-3 years ago and into our region last year has had a deep impact on dwindling beef numbers and where we thought our beef markets would be. However, conditions have improved, and the most recent information that I have gathered indicates that fed cattle averaged $132.30 last week, the highest cash cattle price on record. Feeder calves are also selling at a record pace this fall. Barring continued drought, and assuming some heifer retention to begin building our cow herd back, our markets are lining up nicely… ..stay tuned! I am pleased to announce that The American Angus Association Board of Directors has accepted Nebraska’s bid to host the 2016 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) to be held in Grand Island Nebraska at the State Fair grounds. Many thanks go out to our member producers and Juniors that have taken a leadership role with the planning activities that go into hosting the NJAS. As time draws closer, please consider taking on a role to assist with any of the planning committees that are formed to help host this great event. What a great honor for our state to be host to the 2016 NJAS! The American Angus Association’s 130th Annual Meeting will be held on Monday, November 18 in Louisville, KY. Thank you to all of our members that serve and those offering to serve our state delegation. A complete listing of

Delegates and Alternates can be accessed on the American Angus Association website at www.angus.org. Safe travels to all who plan to attend. Our association events continued in August and September. I would like to congratulate all the exhibitors that participated at the Nebraska State Fair Angus Show on August 29th. September 10-12 was Husker Harvest Days at Grand Island, NE. We had a nice crowd tour through the Nebraska Angus Association booth again this year. Thanks to our member producers who displayed cattle at our booth: Carl Dethlefs & Sons; Dethlefs Angus Ranch; Herbster Angus Farms, Hollman Angus Farm, Lazy Black Diamond Ranch, & Lienemann Cattle Co. We had a beautiful day on September 21st to tour various stops in Northeast Nebraska on the Nebraska State Angus Tour. Thanks to the following for hosting stops on this year’s tour: Northeast Community College – Norfolk NE with cattle displays by Jindra Angus, Pohlman Angus, Sonderup Angus, & Timperley Cattle; Central Valley Ag Coop Agronomy Hub-Royal, NE; Landmark Angus with cattle display by Brookhouser Angus; Bartos Angus; & Foxhoven Angus with cattle display by Leader Angus Farms. It was a great day to view cattle and visit with fellow Angus enthusiasts. Our activities continue on December 7th as I look forward to seeing many of you at our annual meeting and banquet in Kearney, NE at the Holiday Inn. As the year draws to an end… .so does my term as President. I would like to say thank you to our membership for giving me the opportunity to serve. It has truly been an honor and privilege to

Dear Angus Friends…

eptember was a very busy Angus month. It was good to see other Nebraskans on the National Angus Tour in New York. That was followed by our September board meeting in St. Joe and the annual Certified Angus Beef Conference. The biggest news in the breed these past two months has been the discovery of another genetic condition. These discoveries always come with the anticipation of the pain. Many breeders have expressed their concern about the economic impact on their respective herds and have searched for someone or something to "blame". Neither the Australians, scientists, or staff at the association are to "blame" for this new discovery. We can all be proud and feel fortunate that we are involved in a breed whose members are dedicated to providing the most up to date and problem-free genetics possible to the beef cattle industry. And, the good news is...one simple way for the industry to not be affected by any of the genetic conditions is to buy a registered Angus bull that has been tested "clean". These conditions are being discovered in our breed due to the identification of superior genetics and line breeding to those genetics, thus allowing those conditions to manifest. I personally am well

aware of how painful, costly, and labor intensive it is to collect samples and go through the testing process. But with our continued diligent efforts our commercial customers will not have to be affected by the damage of these respective genetic conditions. I hated to miss the annual Nebraska Angus tour, but was attending the Certified Angus Beef Conference that same weekend. It is an honor for me to serve on the Certified Angus Beef board and the annual conference allows a few of us producers to mingle with meat retailers, distributors, and packers. Certified Angus Beef recorded another record year in sales. It is an honor for me to serve the membership of the American Angus Association and especially Nebraska Angus breeders. Even though we are experiencing all time highs in feeder calf prices, we need to make sure that "your" American Angus association is moving forward on a path to help you and your customers to have a competitive advantage over those who do not use registered Angus bulls. As always I invite your thoughts and input. Hope to see you this fall in Louisville and also at the annual Nebraska Angus Association banquet. Sincerely, Arlen Sawyer

s I was deciding what to write about in this fall letter, I reviewed some past presidents’ letters. I noticed many of them discussed the new facilities in Grand Island and how they could put “Nebraska on the map for hosing national shows” (2010). I am excited to share with all of you, after many years of hopeful planning and anticipation we have been successful. Our bid for the 2016 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) has been accepted by the American Angus Association board of directors. This is incredibly exciting news; however, it also means we have a lot of work ahead. In order for this event to be a success, both the adult and junior members will need to get involved and work together. Even though it seems far away, we need to get started immediately. In particular, we need to get committees established as soon as possible in order to make a plan and set a time line. Anyone (adults and/or juniors) who is interested in being on a committee should contact the chair, Jake and Kami Scott at 308 3603223 (Jake). I am confident in our Nebraska Angus members’ ability to come together and make this show, one to remember. Congratulations to everyone who was successful at the Nebraska State Fair! We had a terrific turn out at our State Fair meeting in September. If you were unable to attend, below are some highlights of the meeting. Members signed up for various committees:

Kevin & Theresa Keyes 13106 S 144th St, Springfield, NE 68059 402/ 253-8360 8 • November/December 2013 • Nebraska Angus Association News

Our next event will be the winter preview show, December 7-8th, in Kearney, Nebraska. After checkin, Saturday we will have a short meeting and then have the opportunity to participate in workshops conducted by National Junior Angus Association board members, as part of the “Green Coats – Coast to Coast” program. Furthermore, Saturday evening will be our annual junior fundraiser in conjunction with the Nebraska Angus’s annual banquet and at the same time a pizza social for younger members. The show will be Sunday morning at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds. Be on the lookout for more information and entry forms that will be coming in the mail and/or available on the Nebraska Junior Angus website. This is a fantastic event for new members to gain experience and for tenured members to be able to show their calves for the first time of the upcoming show season.

NAA Presidential Profile By:

Suzy Hebbert, NAA Secretary

Clayton Glause

Angus Roots Sown Early for Clayton Glause Outgoing Nebraska Angus Association President Clayton Glause grew up around Angus cattle, being “born into” the business. His Father, Loy, started breeding Angus cattle in 1951, and the program is known as Lazy Black Diamond Ranch (LBDR). Clayton received his first Angus heifer when he turned 13, selecting the female from a long line of productive momma cows. She turned out to follow that productive trend, allowing him a nice start in the business. He later purchased two additional heifer calves from his Dad. From there, he built his herd through inherd selection and a few other purchases along the way. Currently, the family operation at Palmer is managed by his brother Kevin, with help from two other brothers (Galen & Brian) and his nephew (Morgan). Collectively, the operation consists of about 300 registered cows. The bloodlines at Lazy Black Diamond Ranch consist of several home raised herd sires and purchased sires. The home raised sires trace back to Traveler, Dividend, Grid Maker, Forefront, & Freedom, to name a few. Current herd sires include: Diamond 6011 Forefront LBDR, LBDR 9008 Pioneer, LBDR 1113 In Focus, Vin-Mar Suh (Sitz Upward son). A.I. sire: SAV Brilliance. The Glause family currently markets their breeding program by offering bulls and heifers for sale at private treaty at the farm. They also consign a few bulls each year to the Nebraska Bull Test. As an employee of Cargill-Provimi, Clayton is an Account Manager/Beef Consultant where he enjoys interacting with numerous livestock producers in Nebraska & Iowa. He is a member of Cargill’s U.S. Beef Team, which places an emphasis on beef nutrition and consulting.

Clayton and his wife Amy (whom he met while attending college at University Nebraska-Lincoln), have a young family. Their four children Mitchell (12), Dawson (10), Sydney (7) and Cody (2), keep them active in their community of Fremont, where they focus on their children’s activities which include: Fremont Nighthawks baseball, Jaycees Youth Football, & Trinity Basketball, where Clayton basically helps coach anything that their kids are involved in. Mitchell has developed an interest in the Angus business himself, and makes certain their family makes every effort to attend Angus sales & association events, especially the Angus Tour. For Clayton, the most rewarding part about being a member of the Nebraska Association Board is the relationships & friendships that he has grown. It has also been a great mode for gathering additional information about the livestock industry from fellow members and industry partners. Serving as President has been an honor, privilege and great experience for Clayton and he is thankful to the membership for that opportunity. He entered the Board of Directors with an open mind and one of his goals has always been to serve the membership by listening to suggestions and ideas that may potentially enhance membership offerings and service. As a board, the directors have had discussions and addressed ways to benefit members (e.g. changing printers and thus being able to reduce advertising rates). He has always welcomed discussion topics that could potentially add to membership offerings, and hopes those ideas continue to be presented and considered in the future. He is certain that the board will continue to evaluate options that may enhance membership offerings. Clayton also envisions that the board will continue to enthusiastically support the Nebraska Junior Angus Association members as they are the future leaders

10 • November/December 2013 • Nebraska Angus Association News

of our industry and its successes. Now that his year as President is coming to an end, Clayton is already involved with many activities to fill the “void” of his Presidential responsibilities. He will continue to spend time coaching and attending his kid’s youth sporting events, taking them fishing, taking an occasional family vacation, and he will continue to be active in his church where he and Amy chair the school’s annual benefit auction. Being one of thirteen children (he has 6 brothers and 6 sisters) he also enjoys catching up with his siblings at family gatherings, and spending time with the kids at the family farm near Palmer and Amy’s family farm near West Point. Clayton feels that all breeders can learn from one another about their breeding programs, and that all producers can use that information as a tool to move forward with their individual breeding program goals and objectives. He advises all of the state Angus breeders to consider membership in the Nebraska Angus Association and to take an active role in participating in the current events and activities it sponsors. Involved membership presents an opportunity to meet fellow members, develop lasting relationships, and begin to cultivate a great network of knowledge that will serve everyone well into the future of the beef industry.

usker Harvest Days 2013. This year’s 3 day show encompassed large crowds, great cattle and a variety of weather. Setup took place on Monday, Sept 10th on one of the hottest days of late summer. Wednesday during the show we enjoyed cooler temperatures and rain… several rain showers occurred throughout the day. Thursday was a beautiful day for people who attended the show because we had little dust, cooler temperatures and a good crowd through the tent. Members who displayed cattle at this year’s show included: Carl Dethlefs and Sons of Rockville, Dethlefs Angus Ranch of Ravenna, Herbster Angus Farms of Falls City, Lazy Black Diamond Ranch of Palmer and Lienemann Cattle Co. of Princeton. Maci Lienemann, the current Nebraska

Angus Queen and American Angus Ambassador also was present during the week to visit with those who checked out our cattle display. Next year’s event will be held September 911, 2014.

Consider the value of every calf crop.... Obviously, if you save just ONE CALF, a quality Val6 radiant space heater literally costs you next to nothing, and the same Val6 that is so valuable in the calving barn can then be moved to your machine shed and any number of uses for clean, quiet heat. Contact us at 800 846 5157 for the closest Val6 sales associate, or the opportunity to become an associate, or go to www.AgHeaters.com for more info, as well as our full product line and online specials!
