Living the Dream It’s a family affair raising quality cattle at Durban Cattle Company.

D

urban Cattle Company got its start in the cow-calf business by accident. The Madison County family bought some feeder heifers and as the days passed, the more mature heifers started getting pretty heavy. They actually looked a bit pregnant but the family didn’t think that was possible and sold a really nice looking one for fat. The next day when the family went to tend the animals, they found a heifer with a calf in the feedlot. Turns out 18 heifers were pregnant. “That original group of commercial cows were better than many I’ve seen in a lot of places, and they were not even supposed to be commercial cows. We still have 10 of those cows left. They’re very nice cows with a very good temperament and nice calves,” said Quinton Keeran who helps run Durban Cattle with his wife, 10 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

Story and photos by Amy Beth Graves

Nikki, and her parents, Steve and Joyce, and her sister, Beth. That was several years ago and today the family has a diverse operation. It has a total of about 50 cows and is part cow-calf, feedlot, purebred, seedstock and club-calf. Just steps away from busy State Route 29, the farm has been part of the Durban family since 1986 when Steve and Joyce moved there from Hilliard. Joyce grew up on a dairy farm and before buying their farm, the couple rented land and raised dairy feeder calves. Tired of bucket feeding them, they decided to switch to beef feeders and haven’t looked back since. Nikki started showing calves in 4-H and felt herself drawn to the Shorthorns because she thought they were pretty. And then she spotted the heifer Sweet Pea at the Ohio State Fair’s Prospect Show and just had to have her. The family still laughs

Feature about Nikki’s persistence in getting that heifer. “I watched her show and really wanted her. For a week after the state fair, I begged and begged,” Nikki said. “She didn’t do that well at the prospect show but (Nikki) saw she had potential,” Steve said. “She saw something in her that she liked. Nikki’s always had an eye for cattle. She can just pick out the good ones.” Following his daughter’s instinct (and giving in to her persistence), Steve loaded the family up in the truck and drove down to Marietta to pick up the heifer. As the family recalls, the temperature was around 100 degrees that day and the truck didn’t have any air conditioning but the trip was well worth it. Sweet Pea got progressively better through the show season and in 2003, she was grand champion Shorthorn heifer in the Ohio Cattlemen’s BEST program and a winner at the Ohio State Fair. One of Sweet Pea’s offspring went on to win the BEST program, too. Nikki, who makes sure the club calf cows get bred to the right bulls, also was persistent when she found a Shorthorn bull she really liked. Some of his calves performed really well for the Durbans, and Nikki thought he’d be a good addition to

12 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

the farm. She tracked down the owners out west and asked if they were interested in selling him. At first they were and then they weren’t. It turned into a six-month ordeal but Fringe eventually ended up in Ohio where his offspring has performed well for the past three years. “Pretty much all the Shorthorn heifer winners have been a Fringe,” Quinton said. “He was a good investment.” Quinton also knew at a young age that he wanted to raise cattle. When he was 13 or 14, he told his dad he was going to raise beef cattle, got a loan and bought three cow-calf pairs and started showing them. Like his wife and mother-in-law, he focused on Shorthorns because his mom thought they were pretty. He met his future wife while showing cattle and after they got engaged, he was still running cows with his dad 60 miles away but since that wasn’t practical, he brought his cows to the Durban farm, combining the two herds. “It’s very important how we work together,” Quinton said. “I’d say 93 percent of the conversations Nikki and I have together are somehow around cattle. That’s what we talk about because that’s what we’re passionate about.”


Feature

“We just like good cattle. It doesn’t matter what breed they are.” -

In September 2011, the family held its first sale on the farm and has been pleased to see how their calves have improved over the years. “We’re now bringing in five times the sales as the first time. Our cattle have gotten better because of the breeding program and genetics we’ve invested in,” Quinton said. “We’ve really worked at it for a long time and to be able to see the progression is really satisfying to us.” This past year was the first time the family offered both an online and onsite sale. They briefly thought about not holding an open house because of all the work involved but decided having potential customers visit the farm was beneficial. “It’s a great opportunity for them to not only see the cattle but have conversations with them and help build those relationships,” Quinton said. Durban Cattle has a philosophy -- a good cow is one that can perform well standing in a showring, a pasture or a feedlot. The farm has all three of those

settings and those that aren’t sold at the family’s September sale or don’t have a potential seedstock sale end up in the feedlot, which typically contains 30-35 head. “We just like good cattle. It doesn’t matter what breed they are,” Quinton said. Over the past few years, the family has built or fixed up three barns, which are used to winter the cows. During that time of the year, Steve jokes that the barns are “chore factories” because all the cows are hand fed, which allows the family to better manage them. They are sorted by size and temperament with four to five calving cows per pen. Quinton called Joyce the “best herdsman in Ohio,” saying she’s so attentive that the cows “have no secrets” because they are inspected every day. Both Joyce and Nikki, who is a substitute teacher, do the bulk of the work with the cattle and Beth’s chore is to fill up the water tanks. Quinton works full time for the Ohio Pork Council and is involved in several cattle The Ring 2016 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 13


Feature and agricultural organizations while Steve works for COBA/Select Sires and takes care of the 300 acres of row crops. Steve also mixes the herd’s feed.

While Steve’s focus is more on the feedlot side of the business, Quinton and Nikki are more interested in the show side. They love going to the state and county fairs as well as the BEST program and Beef Expo to see how their cattle perform. They are especially appreciative of the Best of the Buckeye program, which recognizes the top Ohio bred, born and raised steers and heifers and the breeders in each breed division at the Ohio Beef Expo and Ohio State Fair. “The Best of the Buckeye program showcases the type of cattle that can come out of the state. We’ve got a stack of banners,” Quinton said. “It’s one more opportunity for kids to get a little bit back but it’s good for the breeders as well because there are a lot of really good cattle in Ohio.” One of Durban Cattle’s rules is to not show a cow that will be in its September sale so the animal will be in tip-top shape for its new owner. On a lark last year, the family decided to show a heifer at 14 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

the Ohio State Fair Prospect Show and was stunned when she was named grand champion. “She’d never been broken or clipped and we dragged her down there and after she was sheared, she looked pretty good and calmed down and won the whole deal,” Quinton said. “Everybody wanted her after that but we held hard to our rule that we were going to keep her. It really helped with our sale anyway because we told people she was one of a pen of five heifers and they were probably the best we’ve ever raised.” This year marked the first time the family has participated in the Beef Expo and won grand champion Shorthorn female. “We always said we weren’t going to (participate) until we could take something that really showcased what we were wanting to do,” Quinton said. “We had some cattle we thought were good enough and she was the top seller in Ohio and the top selling Shorthorn female in the country.” While the showring victories are exciting, at the end of the day it’s all about raising quality cattle, wherever they end up. For Joyce, she’s wanted nothing more than to continue the family tradition of raising cattle. “I told Steve this is what I want to do with my life and I’m living the dream. I know I don’t always act like it but cattle have always been my passion,” she said. “Maybe that’s why I spoil them so much.”

Tattooing Your Show Cattle It’s important to get a good tattoo into the cattle that you’re planning to show or sell as registered animals. It is important to tattoo cattle when they are appropriately sized – not too young, and to apply the tattoo correctly and accurately. Here are a few tips to help you get a good tattoo. 1. Check with the breed association that you are tattooing for any specific requirements on that particular breed. They are usually listed on each breed’s website 2. Have all of your necessary supplies (paper towels, tattoo kit, permanent tattoo ink, toothbrush, rubber gloves, old feed sack, etc.) and work station ready prior to getting the calf into the chute. 3. Get the calf into the chute and properly restrain to prevent movement. 4. Reference the registration papers to ensure loading the proper issued tattoo 5. Load the numbers / letters into the tattoo gun 6. MOST IMPORTANT STEP – CHECK THE LOADED NUMBER / LETTER SEQUENCE ON AN OLD FEED SACK OR PIECE OF PAPER 7. Liberally place ink in the calf’s ear with a toothbrush (it applies the ink more liberally, creating a more legible tattoo) 8. Place the tattoo in the center of the ear, using the top 2 ribs if necessary. Avoid getting to close to the inside or outside of the ear, which will make the tattoos difficult to read as time passes. 9. SECOND MOST IMPORTANT STEP – securely hold and squeeze the tattoo gun for several seconds to ensure a well-executed tattoo 10. After releasing the tattoo gun, apply more ink over the fresh tattoo and rub it in with a toothbrush If you’re tattooing multiple calves, be sure to disinfect your tattoo numbers between each use. This can easily be done by dipping the instrument in rubbing alcohol or applying it directly to the gun with a spray bottle. 62 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

Growing a Passion A young love for Herefords grew into a small business for this young cattlewoman.

M

ary Baker was a mere 10 years old when she decided she wanted to start her own herd. She’d just finished her second showing of steers at the county fair and was ready to take it to the next level. She sprung it on her dad, Roger, as they walked down the lane to the bus stop one morning. “He loaned me the money to buy my first dairy steer and our arrangement was that I would pay back the money (for the cattle), and he would always buy the feed. I told him ‘You said you would buy the feed and I’d buy the cattle so let’s go buy some Herefords,’” Mary laughed. Roger was taken aback and ignored his little girl for a few days but she insisted. Not only did she want to start her own herd but she wanted Herefords. She’d seen some grazing at Lou Ellen Harr’s operation along State Route 30 and thought they were pretty. 70 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

“While walking to the bus she said ‘Dad, you are ignoring me about this cow thing. I’m not going to give up. You told me if I bought them, you would feed them. If I go and get two momma cows and they have babies, I can quit buying them and soon we’ll have a herd.’ How can you turn that down,” Roger asked, laughing. Today, MEB Polled Herefords consists of 11 cows, which are housed at the family’s farm, Bakers Acres, near Wooster, where Mary lives with her parents, Roger and Diane. MEB stands for Mary Elizabeth Baker and while her dad still buys the feed, Mary, now 17, runs the herd. She has worked hard to improve the herd, including investing in good bull semen and being selective about which cows to keep. Having a couple of cows strictly carry embryos has been one of the improvements, Mary said. Because the herd is so small, the family doesn’t have a cleanup bull and only does

artificial insemination. Sometimes that can lead to a hard decision. “If you have a really good cow but she’s a hard breeder, you have to ship her because her offspring will probably also struggle,” Roger said. “If we had 20-25 cows, we’d have a cleanup bull but we don’t have enough cows for that.” The Herefords are mostly sold at the Ohio Beef Expo and two years ago, Mary sold two bred heifers that were top selling females. In 2015 she sold the second highest selling bull there. Having her Herefords be top sellers at the show has been a thrill for Mary because when she was little, she would beg her dad to buy one of those winners. “He always said no and I’d be so mad because I wanted them so bad,” she said. “Two years ago those were my heifers were selling at the top. That was a dream come true; it was the coolest feeling in the whole world.” While Mary never did get to buy a topseller at the Beef Expo, she was successful in getting those first two heifers that started her herd. She and her dad set a 72 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

budget of $2,500 and she looked over the heifers the day before the auction. A family friend, Matt Stitzlein, helped the 10-year-old narrow down her list of 20 to a more reasonable nine. Her dad set up a system that whenever he saw something he liked, he would tap her back with his knees so she could bid. “I remember my little hand kept going up but I kept being outbid,” Mary said. It was so frustrating for the family that at one point, Diane told her husband to just buy a heifer so their daughter wouldn’t be shut out. But Roger and Mary had their system and they stuck to it. Today, Roger is determined that the auctioneer went out of his way to make sure Mary got a heifer. While the crowd was distracted by a sale that drew a lot of money, the auctioneer quickly started the bidding process and sold Mary a heifer for $1,350 before many knew the bidding had resumed. “Mary was so excited and her mother stopped frowning at me and started to smile,” Roger said good-naturedly to his wife. Mary was able to purchase another heifer for exactly the amount of money she had left over. It was perhaps a sign that the little girl was meant to start her own herd. She has fond memories of playing with those heifers and showing the offspring at the county fair. Showing cattle has been a passion for Mary and she’s proud of the success she’s had over the years. For example last year she had the reserve grand champion Hereford heifer at the Beef Expo and her bred and

She says one of her proudest moments was having a Hereford steer reserve division champion at the Wayne County Fair in 2013. The final drive had five black steers and Mary’s Hereford. She knew she had a special steer when the judge drew the crowd’s attention to it. “He got on the microphone and said ‘Ladies and gentlemen, take a look at this young woman and her Hereford steer. I’ve been watching him all day and it’s just an amazing Hereford steer,’” Mary recalled. “The fact that I was in the final six was pretty neat because it had been a really long time since a Hereford was in the final drive.” While Mary spends a lot of time tending her cattle, she spends even more with her horses, which is her first love. She competes in dressage, an Olympic sport that is the art of riding and training a horse in a manner that develops obedience, flexibility and balance. She, her mother and a cousin travel to competitions all over the country. “She shows horses competitively. That’s what she and I do and she and her dad do cattle together,” said Diane, a surgical nurse at Wooster Community Hospital. “Horses come first. There are a lot of shows that she doesn’t show her cattle at because of a conflict with the horses. That’s why the Beef Expo works well because she doesn’t have a conflict with her dressage show.”

- Roger Baker

Mary, who is starting her senior year at Northwestern High School in West Salem and taking classes at Ashland University is think of going into pre-med and becoming bilingual in Spanish and French. She wants to travel extensively but believes she’ll end up back home some day. In the meantime, MEB Polled Herefords is transitioning to a freezer beef business, which makes sense because “you can’t wash and blow out cattle when you’re an hour away in college,” she said. “Her little herd has fledged enough to enable us to do things to give us all a taste of where we could take it but not so big that we couldn’t handle it,” Roger said. For Roger, spending time in the barn with his daughter is a special memory that draws tears for both him and his wife. “All the good conversations that a father is supposed to have with his daughter, all the teachings and life moments, all the tough topics that you’ve got to talk to kids about … Mary and I have always saved those for the barn so the barn for me is a sacred place,” he said. For Mary, working with the cattle and horses has not only taught her important life skills but has provided an extended family. “Everybody who has helped are like uncles and aunts to me,” she said. “We don’t have a big family but because of these animals, I have a family that is always going to be there for me.”

Setting Trends & Staying Focused Garwood Cattle Company is staying focused on quality. Story by Stephanie Sindel

Featured attractions in Northeastern Ohio include the National Football and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and more importantly Garwood Cattle Company, located in Columbiana. What’s common among all of these things? The people that are a part of them are trendsetters…taking risks and putting in the work to follow their efforts and create a high-quality model for others to follow. In 2008 Justin Garwood and his father, Bob decided that they would like to re-introduce cattle into the farming operation. That is when they purchased the “Cookie” cow - the matriarch of their current herd. She’s been a great asset and is still producing progeny from the donor pen. Garwood Cattle Company is comprised of Justin, his wife Jamie and daughter Bailey along with Justin’s father, Bob. As the cattle numbers grow, Justin has hired numerous full-time employees 80 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016

and a few part-time seasonal helpers to keep things up and running. Someone to specialize in breeding and calving, someone to take care of the show and sale cattle, a maintenance man, another person to keep everything straight in the office, and of course Justin oversees all of the cattle operation. While growing up, Justin showed cattle in 4-H on a local level. He always enjoyed the cattle; however, when he wrapped up his junior career he became focused on the trucking portion of the family business. As the demand for ground deliveries grew, the Garwood family seized the opportunity to expand into this arena. The Garwood family currently has a contract with FedEx on the East Coast running 60 semitrucks. Most of their fleet is based out of Hartford, Connecticut with some back in North Jackson, just North of Columbiana. Just like all other businesses, the freight


industry requires the right tools. Trucks, drivers, maintenance, schedulers for shipments and operators, and the overall record keeping to keep things running smoothly. Since the Garwoods’ got back into the cattle business nearly ten years ago they have experienced tremendous success. Promoting bulls, acquiring some of the most sought after donors in the county, marketing many high-sellers that have went on to do great things and keeping their tanks full of frozen genetics to ship across the county have all added to that success. Marketing their cattle and genetics have taken place predominately online. They also offer open houses for viewers and potential buyers to come to the farm and take a look. At the end of the day, Justin has one goal in mind and that is to make it a rewarding experience for the families that they’re associated with.

Getting back into the business was exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. As you know, things can change pretty rapidly in an industry, so after ten plus years there is a bit of research to be done to ensure that you’re staying ahead of the curve. Oftentimes this means breeding on a concept of an idea of where you would like to take your herd. Staying consistent with that choice is sometimes challenging because it’s easy to want to chase trends. In doing so, you’re ultimately falling a little behind with each breeding season. Justin says, “Not everything is what it seems. Do your research for yourself and stay consistent. It will provide more dividends and success for the long-term.” Running 250 cows in various locations seems feasible, but when land is at a premium like it is in Northeastern, Ohio, some days it requires a lot of running

“We have accumulated so many great genetics and we hope to provide others with some of the same opportunities that we have been graced with.”

Feature around. Garwoods have cows in five locations that range as far as two-anda-half hours apart. When it comes time to work cows, it takes a crew of three or four, a transportable tub and chute system, and a full day to get to and from the cows’ location. The same holds true with partnerships in Justin’s opinion. The concept of cost-

focus,” said Justin. “We have accumulated so many great genetics and we hope to provide others with some of the same opportunities that we have been graced with.” In addition to the trucking company and the cattle the Garwood family also has numerous other irons in the fire. They’re currently finishing construction on a new

sharing purchases or inputs is always appealing; however, in doing so, it’s constant bookkeeping and making sure that everything is squared away at the end of the day. From flushing to mating to selling offspring and embryos, it’s a constant working relationship. Finding the right partners can be the difference between a great experience and selling out. When starting out, the cows were a hobby and enjoyable part to the end of a long day. After several years of purchasing the best genetics and cattle that they could find, it’s time to downsize. Justin is looking to regain focus on his best cattle and make even better cattle with less numbers. Inevitably, this is something that happens in nearly all businesses. “We would rather give another person the opportunity to have something of their own to start with than keep them around here with less

calving barn and have been consistently expanding their current location to feasibly maintain their own equipment for both businesses. The ability to provide in-house repairs and fixes is something that will keep things up and running efficiently. The Garwood logo is prevalent when it comes to sponsorship and donations. When asked why, Justin simply stated, “for the kids.” He elaborates that when state and breed associations offer scholarships and events, it gets kids out of the house and into something that they can turn into a future…even though they might not realize it at the time. Some of the best times at the Garwood house are when the entire family is outside in the barn working together. “It instills values and the responsibility that it provides is priceless,” Justin states. Garwood Cattle Company’s focus is on the families and they enjoy the chance to

provide similar opportunities to each of their customers by selling cattle. The hardwork and time spent together isn’t easily achieved, but “when you get in the truck exhausted after a long weekend – banners or not, you’re in there together and it was about the experience.”

In Justin’s spare time, he competes throughout the state with his pulling truck, “Goat on a Rope.” Like his other endeavors his competitive edge rises to the top, making him well-known in these circles. Similar to other hobbies, it takes quite a bit of time and effort to become successful with a pulling truck, not to mention the crew that it takes to stay on the track throughout the season. Most recently, the Garwoods have added a custom fabrication shop to the farm. This will be used on all fronts, whether it be new trailer graphics or something that needs adjusted on a truck to handle shipments. The ability to multifunction through different facets of the farm have made it a great environment for full-time employees while providing efficiencies for both businesses. The reason that each person gets into the cattle business is ultimately slightly different, but at the end of the day, if people don’t enjoy it, they won’t do it. With semen tanks loaded with embryos and an ever-growing cow herd, the Garwoods have set their sights on refocusing the goals of their herd. Driving home the quality versus quantity will hold true as they start working to get their herd back to a size that keeps the cows closer to home. Ideally, running 75-100 head and flushing the elite top-end is where they’re headed. Essentially, they’ll be doing more with less and they will still be hosting sales and selling semen and embryos. Justin has a tremendous savviness when it comes to business and marketing. Driving it home, he simply stated, “you have to separate yourself.” This generally requires thinking outside of the box and throwing up a few things that don’t stick, but when that one crazy idea does hold-up you’ll have a lot of people trying to imitate what you’re doing. The key is to stay on the leading edge. 

Hitting the Mark Focusing on a variety of marketing techniques has allowed the Beef Checkoff to be more targeted in their efforts to promote beef.

S

imply saying you are going to promote something is no longer suitable for any endeavor. The stakes are higher, the competition more prepared and the market busier than ever. For anything to standout and be effective you have to have incredible focus on what you are trying to achieve. You have to find opportunities to get ahead of the game and make the most impact possible, you have to be strategic. The Beef Checkoff has been a powerful agency of the beef industry since its inception in 1985, but as the market has evolved and become even more competitive it has become crucial to become more strategic. While the beef industry is a powerful force in the marketplace it doesn’t have the resources, both in time and manpower, to be able to target and reach every consumer group. People respond very differently to marketing. Look at any super

bowl ad, you and your friends may have vastly different opinions on what the best advertisement may have been. To go even deeper, you may read through a magazine and notice something and the next person will miss it completely. This comes from a variety of factors, and as researchers gather enough information they are able to group them into audiences. One of the ways the checkoff and the Ohio Beef Council has been able to become more targeted is through market research conducted by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the beef checkoff. Your checkoff dollars help fund market research that builds a better understanding of beef in the ever-changing marketplace. One of the main goals is to find when and why consumers are establishing how they eat. As generations come and go it has become evident that there is a particular

stage in life that is most important in choosing dietary habits, parenthood. As adults transition into parenthood, there is a greater emphasis on having healthy, delicious food for their children to eat and enjoy. This stage not only changes what the parents may eat as part of their daily diet, but will also set the foundation for their children’s diets as well. So by targeting marketing efforts to these consumers the beef industry is impacting two generations at once. The current generation, millennials, is no exception. Millennials are now the largest generation in the history of the United States and have more buying power than anyone before them. The oldest of this group are now beginning to transition into parenthood, even though they may have delayed having kids longer than previous generations before them.

find out what messages are most impactful. Everyday a consumer is surrounded by messages on what to buy, the key is to cut through the clutter by finding the right message then placing it in the right spot. Messaging is initially developed by taking marketing research then using focus groups to find the words that are going to stick out then stick with the consumer. Researchers will go into a room with prepared messages, a list of words, videos and work with consumers to find what is most impactful to them. The work is extensive, and even as they begin to hone in on a message it gets tested over and over until the right words, music and visuals are in place. We then need to establish where that message needs to come from. This brings us to one of the main goals of NCBA and the OBC, connecting with influencers. An influencer is a person who has

As many agriculturalists know, social media and the internet can be a hub to find both facts and myths about many things, agriculture especially. This is giving them access to answer any question they may have in an instant, regardless of the source or credibility. Some may ask, “How are you able to market directly to millennial parents?” The first step is finding where the target audience, millennial parents, are going for information about food. Researchers take massive amounts of data collected across the country and distill that into answers we need to begin planning on how to market beef. Now that we know where these consumers are, the next step is to

a large voice in a particular segment of the population. These individuals normally have a large following of either consumers or colleagues. A lot of the time these influencers become a source for information in their respective fields. While we would love to directly connect with Ohio’s over 11 million consumers, and get them hands on experience with beef, it simply isn’t logistically feasible. So if we are able to connect and build trust with these influencers we are also by extension impacting their network.

groups that OBC actively engages with, but for those of you who aren’t as familiar let’s take a moment to go over a few of these groups. One of OBC’s most prevalent partnerships is with bloggers here in the state of Ohio. A blogger is simply someone who writes articles about specific interests and shares them online. We have targeted bloggers who are engaged in food, nutrition and parenting communities and built partnerships to have them post about beef related topics. In 2016 OBC has partnered to host five blogger campaigns spanning the entire year. Along with utilizing bloggers networks we also provide immersion experiences for bloggers to come and gain further knowledge of the beef industry. These tours offer a chance to visit a beef farm, talk with producers, ask a veterinarian questions and build trust with the beef industry as a whole. OBC is able to measure the success of these tours by surveying the groups before and after to see where their opinions started then ended. Another group that OBC actively engages with are healthcare professionals.

Doctors, nutritionists, pediatric professionals and dieticians are examples of who fits into this category of influencers. This group is critical to engage with because they are viewed by their clients and patients as the end all be all for medical advice. Diet often becomes a topic of conversation during medical treatment, so it is important to build and maintain a relationship with the beef industry so we are viewed as a resource for information. While OBC does engage with this group in many similar ways to the bloggers the relationship is much more focused on providing research and educational materials that they can use within their practice to then spread to their patients. Some may not think that teachers fall into the description of influencer, but they are in the most fundamental of ways. Educators are the gatekeepers to the next generation of consumers, each and every day they have the platform to mold opinions of their students. Knowing that this formative stage is important to be involved in OBC actively creates opportunities to share the word of the beef industry with educators. Many of the resources you see shared through OBC’s social media platforms are also provided to teachers to utilize in their classrooms. Videos, workbooks, lesson plans and in-classroom demonstrations are all

Feature available for teachers to use at a variety of levels. Chefs also are influencers that we work with to spread the word of beef. These individuals influence many aspects of the foodservice world; the menu, wait staff, line cooks, aspiring chefs and the patrons that sit down at their restaurants. From our experience we have found that chefs are often only educated on beef from the point it reaches them at the restaurant. This leaves a gap in knowledge that is susceptible to outside influence about the myths of beef production. Keeping this group engaged and informed of what the beef industry is doing and how its practices keep food safe and tasty for them to prepare is vital. OBC works with this group by providing them value added educational opportunities to both

learn about production and explore new ways beef can be used in their restaurants. This is achieved through cutting demonstrations, food immersion trips and educational materials on the newest findings in meat science. Focusing on the greatest opportunities the beef industry has in the marketplace is the foundation of the OBC’s and NCBA’s marketing strategy. Winning in the important areas is what is keeping us relevant in consumers’ minds despite all of the negative outside noise that is prevalent in today’s ever changing market. As our problems and opportunities change, the same model of marketing used today will evolve to meet those needs. It is all about hitting your mark to meet your goals despite the challenges in front of you. 

Letting Cows Be Cows Managing your show cattle with their physcial limitations in mind is critical to reaching goals.

T

here are many reasons that an individual or family becomes involved in showing cattle. Some of these reasons may include the love of competition, advertising cattle produced by an operation, carrying on a family tradition, or for pure enjoyment. I’m sure you can think of other reasons as well. Given the time and financial resources involved in showing beef cattle, it would seem obvious that someone would want to set goals to try to achieve for this endeavor. What do you want to achieve by showing cattle? Do you want to learn about cattle management practices or gain knowledge about the beef industry? Do you want to make a profit from your 4-H or FFA project? Is your goal to become an accomplished showman? Are you interested in being successful in the Outstanding Market Exhibitor Program? Is your ultimate goal to exhibit Grand Champion Heifer or Steer at the County Fair, State Fair, or other national show? I can tell you based on years of experience that none of the goals listed above are easily achieved. The fact is that it is hard work to achieve any level of

success in showing cattle regardless of the particular goal you are pursuing. There are many factors involved in a producing a competitive show animal such as selection, nutrition, health, showmanship, etc. The exhibitor has to master all of these areas to some degree to achieve a level of success in the show ring. Regardless of your level of skill in any management area, any exhibitor is going to have to work within the physical limitations of the heifer or steer. I understand that you are making a significant investment in time and resources to show any beef animal. There may be a desire to go to as many shows as possible or maximize an animal’s phenotype but is that the smart decision? You may be able to go to a show every other weekend during the BEST show season but will that allow your animal to look its best at a show later in the year? Do you want your animal to be in peak condition at the Ohio Beef Expo or is the County or State Fair your ultimate goal? This is why it is important to set goals for the show season.

Feature you need to match your show ring goals to the physical limitations of the animal. In other words, sometimes you just have to “Let a Cow Be a Cow.” I want to discuss a few management tips that I believe help you understand this concept.

Target Endpoints

Show market animals have a generally accepted market weight range and a much shorter lifetime production cycle compared to breeding females. Most competitive show market animals will be shown at 1,250 – 1,450 pounds. These animals are targeted for beef production and will be harvested prior to reaching two years of age. Most county fair steers will be harvested at 15-20 months of age. Industry trends over the past several years have seen harvest and carcass weights steadily climb. According to CattleFax, steer carcass weights through May 2016 are averaging over 883 pounds which is over a 45 pound increase over the previous 10-year average through May. Keep in mind that a 1,400 pound steer with a 63% dressing percentage would produce an 882 pound carcass. The eventual endpoints for a heifer or steer are completely different. A show heifer is hopefully going to become a productive brood cow. The exhibitor must appropriately manage her as a calf and a yearling to give a realistic chance of becoming a positive addition to any cow herd. She must get bred shortly after reaching puberty in order to calve as a two-year-old. Aggressively showing a heifer during her first breeding season (15-18 months of age) can make heat detection more difficult and potentially reduce conception rates. Keep in mind that a first-calf heifer should calve at 24-28 months of age to improve lifetime productivity. I often hear complaints about breeding cattle being too fat at shows and that

point is hard to argue. Keep in mind that university research has shown that a heifer should weigh 60-65% of her potential mature weight at yearling breeding time and 85% of her mature weight as a twoyear-old first-calf heifer. This means that a cow with a potential mature weight of 1,400 lbs. should translate to target weights of a roughly 875 lb. heifer at first breeding and a roughly 1,200 lb. two-year-old. Many show heifers will far surpass these weights throughout their show careers.

A Season-Long Strategy

When you select a prospective show heifer or steer, the exhibitor likely has a tentative plan as to how many times they anticipate showing the animal. In most cases, a potential show season for an Ohio exhibitor could start out at the first OCA BEST show in November and conclude the following November at the North American show in Louisville. The show

Feature careers of some heifers may extend beyond that point. Regardless if it is a heifer or steer, you need to develop a management strategy for the animal to help you achieve your show ring goals. I have to admit that this can be easier said than done. You may have a great management strategy for your show animal but unforeseen circumstances such as illness, poor rate of gain, or breeding problems can derail the best laid plans. You must be able to adapt to these unplanned events. The OCA BEST program has been a great program for many years for Ohio youth exhibitors. During the 2015-16 season, there were over 10 shows to potentially attend between late November and early April. In my opinion, these added show ring opportunities have in many cases made show animal management for an entire show season more difficult. If you attend BEST shows, you likely want to have your animal looking its best to be competitive. If your animal is in peak condition at the final BEST show of the season, it may create some difficult management choices as you target your

fair in August? Do you believe you can have the animal at its peak at both times? Regardless of how you answer the previous two questions, you better have access to a good set of livestock scales to monitor an animal’s weight progress and a sound nutritional strategy to achieve your goals. In my opinion, a solid management strategy for show heifers can be more difficult than one for market animals. Show heifers do not have to necessarily meet show ring weight requirements as a market animal does. However, some shows do weigh the heifers so it is important. It is my belief that body condition and fill are more important with heifers than weight. Most modern market animals have to carry a certain degree of fat cover to optimize carcass quality and yield. Conversely, I don’t believe you will hear a judge say he wants to see a competitive show heifer be fatter. Show heifers that are campaigned frequently prior to a year of age can easily become overly conditioned. This is especially true with easy fleshing, high body capacity heifers. If you are going to show a heifer for an entire show season, you

For example, your market animal weighs 1,000 pounds on April 1. You are targeting your animal to weigh 1,350 pounds at your county fair or the State Fair on August 1. Simple math tells you that the animal will have to gain 3 pounds/day over the 120 day period to achieve that goal. If your animal weighs 1,100 pounds on April 1, they would only have to gain 2.1 pounds/ day to reach 1,350 pounds. Is your priority to optimize the animal’s phenotype at the Ohio Beef Expo in March or at the county

cannot continuously feed a high energy diet in large amounts. A high-performing heifer can utilize a higher fiber diet comprised of bulkier feedstuffs. It never hurts to let the heifer “be a cow” once in a while by kicking her out of the show barn and out to pasture in a down period between shows. A little extra exercise and a lot less feed can do wonders to “freshen” a heifer up.

Get Her Bred With Calving Ease in Mind While we still are talking about heifers, this is a good time to emphasize the

importance of getting the show heifer bred. How you treat the show heifer as a yearling can set her up for a lifetime of productivity or failure. As I stated earlier, it is important to get the yearling heifer bred so that she calves around her second birthday. This can be a difficult task with a show heifer. Ask any experienced breeding cattle showman and they will tell you that is difficult to achieve conception with a fat show heifer! I want to offer a couple more words of advice on reproduction and show heifers. I realize that if you own a high quality show heifer, the overriding temptation is to breed her to produce the next great show animal. I cannot stress enough the importance of mating any yearling heifer with calving ease in mind. Regardless of breed or composite, heifers should be mated to bulls with known Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) generated by a breed association to increase the odds of an unassisted birth. Using proven A.I. sires will improve these odds greatly. If you cannot get the show heifer bred artificially in two or three tries, expose her to natural service to a son of a proven calving ease sire. I have to address one of my greatest pet peeves in regard to breeding show or replacement heifers. There are plenty of solid calving ease options across several breeds. The sire’s EPDs are an extremely valuable tool in this process. Look at the percentile tables at a breed association’s

website to determine how a bull ranks in terms of calving ease. Many of you have thumbed through glossy bull directories published by A.I. organizations or independent sources. A bull with a pretty picture, no EPDs, a “published” low birth weight and anecdotal information on potential or isolated calving ease is NOT a good candidate for breeding heifers.

Hair

I want to preface my opinions about the current emphasis of hair growth in current show cattle. My family has shown beef cattle for nearly 50 years and I have judged shows for over 30 years. I love to see cattle groomed at a show. Seeing my family exhibit a well-groomed, high quality animal is very rewarding to me. I get excited to evaluate an animal presented in peak form in the show ring. Hair management is obviously a part of show cattle management. Cattle exhibited at fall and winter shows will naturally have more hair than other times of the year. There are a wide variety of products and equipment available to create an extremely attractive appearance in the ring and today’s exhibitor uses them very well. As we transition to warm weather shows in the spring and summer, beef cattle will naturally shed their winter hair coats. The exhibitor has some basic choices in regards to the shedding process. They can let the animal shed at their own pace, they can

122 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2016


use a variety of combs and other devices to pull out the old hair, or they can clip off the hair with a variety of cutters and combs to speed up the process. I prefer the use of clippers but a dedicated exhibitor can effectively remove the old hair with enough time and patience. That said, I believe the current emphasis on hair growth in show cattle is being taken to the extreme and becoming counterproductive for the industry. I understand cattle at fall and winter shows are going to have hair and will be fitted accordingly. I will admit that I am not a big “fan” of the current use of “cool rooms” with show cattle for warm weather shows. While I understand the desire to create the thicker, fuller bodied look with market animals during summer shows, I do not endorse it. The trend of the increased use of “cool rooms” with heifers is nothing

CONVENTION

short of absurd. I hear all of the arguments about keeping up with the competition in terms of hair growth. I believe we have lost sight of what I believe the ultimate purpose of the show ring should be which is to identify the ideal breeding or market animal for the industry to produce. A winter hair coat in warm weather is neither practical nor ideal.

Keep Your Eye on the Prize

Achieving your goals in the show ring can be a challenging yet rewarding endeavor. The experiences, friendships, and life-lessons gained by my family through showing cattle have been invaluable. I encourage you to set realistic goals and keep the animals production limitations in mind. Remember, sometimes you just have to let “cows be cows!” Good luck throughout the show season! 

Reasons provided by:

The Ohio State University livestock Judging Team I’ll sort the Hereford heifers 1324. Initially, 1’s built like a cow. That’s a big footed, clean-jointed cattle that’s exceptional in her angles. As I take her from there up, she sets the pace in terms of body shape, bulk and dimension. But, where she capitalizes and adds to her value, is from the side. She’s so fresh and attractive upfront, and from there back she proportions with so much balance and brood cow function. I love the heifer in 2nd because of what she represents. 3’s a moderate, low maintenance cattle that’s built like a female. But, to be competitive as a senior yearling, she’ll need to be managed, as she’s a bit plain in the shape to her neck, shoulder and chest. But nonetheless, structure and basic build sort the middle pair 3/2. 3’s so much more appropriate in her angles upfront. Then as a study her from the side, she’s the cattle that’s easier to put together in terms of her proportions. Now, 2’s still got some unique

pieces. That’s a big footed, heavy structured heifer and she may be the boldest in her upper rib and stoutest out through her hip. Unfortunately, she doesn’t tie these unique pieces together with near enough balance or coordination. I’d like to see this heifer softer in rib, flatter in her shoulder and ultimately sounder when she’s pulled to lead. Now, although 2’s far from perfect, here in the bottom pair I think it’s only sensible to let performance sort them 2/4 as she’s easily the stouter featured, bolder bodied cattle. Now, don’t get me wrong, 4’s got a nice shape to her hind leg and she’s fresh in her neck. But realistically, her body shape and structure won’t work. She’s entirely too straight in her shoulder and knee and she needs to be built more like a cow from there back.

Building the Best The BEST program is growing and developing future industry leaders one youth member at a time By Emily Henes

T

he Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) winter BEST Program has been growing over the past 17 years. During this time hundreds of exhibitors have passed through OCA’s BEST program. Each of them hoping to leave their own legacy for the next generation of cattle exhibitors to come. Throughout this time the program has grown not only in numbers, but also in producing future industry leaders that will undoubtedly make a positive impact on the future of Ohio’s cattle industry. The BEST program wouldn’t be where it is today without the impact of youth like Kinley Kreis, Bryce and Brielle Vernon, Reily and Delaney Bell and a number of others who have contributed to the program’s success.

Teamwork makes the Dream Work

Dedication, sacrifice, and hard work are just a few words that describe the competitive showmen that live in Mid-Eastern Ohio. Each of these young people play a different role on their journey to the backdrop; from show day

hair prep, washing, blowing and combing and brushing calves, taste testing crock pot meals, and even making sure that the generator doesn’t blow a fuse. All of these tasks are crucial to a successful program. Teamwork most definitely makes the dream work for these families from selection to the show ring. They all focus on their strengths to have an exceptional end result. Although regardless of the outcome of the show, the fact that they got to work with their stock show family makes all the sacrifices worthwhile. There is no exception to this team mentality when it comes to these exceptional showmen. They’ve all had their fair share of success, from Kinley winning Reserve Intermediate Showman at the Chianina National Junior Heifer Show in 2015, to Bryce sweeping up Reserve Champion at a handful of jackpot shows this past winter, to Reily winning her first Grand Champion award at the 2015 Muskingum County Fair, landing her a spot in the local paper, and even Delaney hitting a grand slam in her All-Star Softball game. It doesn’t stop there for these kids though, taking time to meet up with

one another throughout the summer to do mock “Stock Show U” clinics, to help one another improve on showmanship skills, fitting, and overall show strategies, all fully aware that there is always room for improvement in the ever-changing cattle industry.

Following in the Family’s Footsteps.

With solid family farm foundations, Delaney and Reily live on a 10,000 head farrow-to-finish operation in Zanesville, Ohio where they also crop farm 2,800 acres and house 1,000 sows. The Kreis family stays extremely active in the barns by calving out 40 cows outside of Adamsville, Ohio. The Vernon siblings spend their time helping on their 3,500 acre crop farm outside of Adamsville, Ohio focusing on corn, bean and hay production. They also sell bull calves and keep heifers to continue to grow their herd. They calve out about 50 head of commercial cows each year.

Feeding for Success.

“When it comes to chores it’s more than just putting feed into a bucket and then putting it in a bunk.” Bryce explains. Management is definitely key in the agricultural industry and there is a true science behind nutrition in livestock. A good feeding program and consistently weighing one’s project can be as big of a factor as showmanship and fitting. It can be compared to having

Feature

good frosting on a terrible cake, it may look nice but the whole package is what really matters, from the inside out. They all suggest using a barn board to check weight, feed, rate of gain, etc. Keeping consistent records on their projects allows them to keep track of the health of their project and allows them to see if any changes or adjustments need to be made to better influence their project. They all stress the health of their animals, assuring that any changes in behavior are taken into account, as well as, changes in temperature. The slightest environmental changes can have a large impact on their cattle. When discussing the cattle industry as a whole they all agreed that they want to shine a positive light on the industry, ensuring consumers that their animals are not just well cared for but their needs go before their own in all cases. They get the best possible treatment and receive the highest quality care, and with the constant contact, and hours of interaction, these animals become a part of the family.

Dream. Believe. Achieve.

Keeping busy in and out of the show ring, the Bell sisters find themselves at the softball fields, on the basketball court and participating in numerous equestrian associations. The girls believe that the hard work will help them achieve their goals. When asked what their advice was for achieving goals, the Vernon siblings The Ring 2016 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 131


Feature

explained that, “You can’t just talk about it, you have to do it, and to never cut corners.” Success is sure to come with work ethics like this group displays; already looking into furthering their education at the collegiate level all across the country at different programs specializing in their areas of interest. Reily and Kinley have aspirations to pursue futures in Veterinary fields, with more specified interest in reproductive physiology, and embryology. Brielle wants to be an accountant, and Bryce and Delaney both have goals to enter the medical field, all staying involved and connected to the industry beyond their junior years. Kinley Kreis, as well as, the others stress the importance of the BEST program and programs like it. Making lifelong friendships not only with people within the state but across the country, learning the importance of responsibility, and gaining access to industry professionals that will help them to learn and accomplish future career goals, are all positive attributes of these programs.

Leaving an Impact for the Future.

The future of the industry is going to directly reflect the adoption rate of advancements in technology. With all of the innovative ideas in agriculture and

specifically in cattle production, it is important to approach new ideas with an open mind. The stock show industry is so trend focused that it is important to stay in touch with the latest fads. Reily Bell described it like this, “Don’t stick with what your parents did when they were twelve, you can’t stick with the ways that it used to be.” Not everyone shows the exactly the same, but to stick with how it used to be will only hinder your growth in the industry. Attending clinics, asking professionals, and watching peers progress and evolve in the industry helps to improve show strategies. The group understands that with their many successes comes an obligation to pay it forward, they are aware that somewhere ringside is a young showmen who wants to be where they are some day. They hope to make an impact on those young showmen, just as their role models did for them.

The Stock Show life definitely has its challenges, but in the end they are worth it.

Showing and raising livestock is not always fun and games. There are the challenges of the early mornings in the barn, balancing other extracurricular activities, and maintaining a social life with friends that don’t live the stock show lifestyle. However, the lessons learned, the experiences gained, friendships formed and the tremendous rush of adrenaline you feel when you hit the shavings, make all the sacrifices worthwhile. These memories and opportunities will far surpass your time in the show ring.
