A new program highlights Ohio bred, born and raised registered cattle Story by Julie White

hioans have a lot to be proud of. Emerging from the state are leaders, including seven U.S. presidents, it hosts big-time companies and has a great deal of political influence, all the while being diversified and keeping its agriculture roots as the state’s number one industry. It’s no surprise that Ohio’s cattlemen also raise high-quality registered cattle. Seeing a need to highlight this sector of the beef industry, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association along with leaders of the Ohio Beef Expo and Ohio State Fair created the Best of the Buckeye program to do just that. 10 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2014

“Best of the Buckeye was created to provide Ohio seedstock breeders an enhanced marketing opportunity,” says Mark Hara, co-chair of the Best of the Buckeye committee and a Ohio breeder who raises Angus, Sim-Angus and MaineAnjou cattle. “For the breeders, it draws attention to Ohio and for exhibitors it gives them an opportunity to compete in two high-profile shows,” he says. Best of the Buckeye was announced at the 2013 Ohio State Fair and launched in the 2014 show season. The program recognizes topplacing Ohio bred, born and raised calves,

Youth programs like Best of the Buckeye could not be possible without generous sponsors. Pictured top is the Best of the Buckeye Reserve Champion Chianina Heifer exhibited by Jessica Griffith, Georgetown, Ohio. Heifer division sponsor Gale Long, Green Oak Farms, presents Jessica with a banner. Pictured middle is Drew Weymouth, New Carlisle, Ohio, with his Best of the Buckeye Champion Hereford Steer. Steer division sponsor Steve R. Rauch is presenting the award. Pictured below are Vonda and Troy Gabriel of Franklin Equipment, scholarship sponsor, with scholarship recipients. 12 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2014

along with the breeder and exhibitor, in each breed division at the two shows, the Ohio Beef Expo in the spring and the Ohio State Fair in the summer. Premiums, scholarships and awards are given at the two shows, totalling $45,000, thanks to program sponsors Green Oak Farms, heifer division; Steve R. Rauch, steer division; and Franklin Equipment, scholarship. Base premiums paid are $300 for champion, $200 for reserve champion, and $100 for third overall. State breed associations also offered additional premiums for their respective breeds. “Best of the Buckeye offers a lot of opportunities,” says Matthew Hiser, 18, a program participant from Jamestown, Ohio, who exhibited a Maine-Anjou steer at the 2014 Ohio Beef Expo. He purchased the steer from Jason Bihl, Washington Court House, Ohio. “It’s not only a great program for exhibitors, it opens doors for breeders to sell their registered calves here in Ohio. We have some great cattle in the state and through Best of the Buckeye, they can compete with other calves raised here.” He adds that it offers the opportunity for youth like himself to get involved in the beef industry. “This program allows young breeders, like myself, to become active in many aspects of the industry. With the breeders getting recognized at both the Ohio Beef Expo and the Ohio State Fair it creates positive influence for young cattlemen.” Mark says one of the key features of the program is that it highlights each breed. “No matter what breed, the program brings attention to Ohio breeders and increases demand for their product.”


Feature

“Best of the Buckeye is well on its way to become a premier event, One that other states will look up to.” -

When beginning to develop the program a few years ago, Mark says it was important for the committee to create a well-balanced program. Best of the Buckeye offered 20 $500 scholarships to participants to help offset the cost of purchasing, raising and exhibiting a Best of the Buckeye nominated calf and were awarded based on need and to exhibitors new to the showring. Additionally, $1,000 Best of the Buckeye academic scholarships will be awarded at the 2014 Ohio State Fair. “We understand that raising and showing cattle is a learning opportunity for youth, so we wanted to enable youth to participate,” Mark says. “That’s how we decided to make this a very sound program by combining competition and scholarship. Our three sponsors are committed to giving back to youth in Ohio.” Matthew was a recipient of a $500 scholarship. “I’m really thankful for the scholarship opportunity and to have received one of these,” he says. “It essentially makes a $2,000 steer a $1,500 one, and it surprised me how far $500 can go.” He says with the money he saved on the purchase of his Maine-Anjou steer, he was able to bring the breeder back to assist him with clipping. “Jason helped me clip him that first time and I learned some techniques,” he says. “I was also able to spend that money on feed and show supplies.” While the program is still very new, Mark says the committee has received positive feedback. “Expo generated more interest and we were getting questions from breeders and exhibitors about how they can get cattle into

the program,” he says. “Looking back on the committee’s intent for the program, Best of the Buckeye absolutely accomplished what it was supposed to do. It’s still early in the program, but it drew attention to breeders of the various breeds in Ohio. People are saying ‘Hey, I can be competitive,’ and its all thanks to this new opportunity.” Looking forward, the Best of the Buckeye committee will review the program following the Ohio State Fair and seek input from exhibitors and breeders. “I had a great experience with Best of the Buckeye,” Matthew says. “I hope this program continues to grow because I think people are really happy with it. We don’t have to spend big money out west to get a quality show calf. We have them here.” Mark says he sees the program developing demand for registered steers and heifers, and elevating the role of Ohio breeders in youth programs. “Best of the Buckeye is well on its way to become a premier event,” Mark says. “One that other states will look up to.” v

Harr family focuses on meeting demand for their Herefords ighteen years ago, Jeff and Lou Ellen Harr reached a turning point in their lives. The Hereford cattle operation where they worked at in Jeromesville was closing with the land being divided up and sold at auction. Not only were they losing their jobs but the house they lived in. Instead of lamenting their losses, the Harrs quickly swung into action. With the help of family who provided financial support and a friend who gave them bidding advice, the couple came up with a plan to buy a piece of Big T Ranch being auctioned off in Ashland County. In the end, the Harrs prevailed, purchasing 100 acres and the old farmhouse they had been living in and even received a round of applause at the auction. “Fourteen hundred acres of ground were sold that day in parcels. We bought this place and knew we’d stay in the Hereford business,” Lou Ellen said. Staying with Herefords and starting their seedstock business, J&L Cattle, was

an easy decision. Lou Ellen grew up in southern Missouri on a registered polled Hereford operation and was in charge of Big T’s Hereford show and sale cattle and developing heifers. Plus, shortly after they bought the property, a nearby Hereford producer approached them about working together. It didn’t matter that the Harrs only had one cow at the time. “Conard Stitzlein of Mohican Farms walked up to us and asked if we were going to do anything with Herefords and said ‘I’d sure like to work with you.’ That’s how the idea of a custom business got started. We still work with him today,” Lou Ellen said. Today J&L Cattle has about 60 cows, owns 100 acres and rents out land from eight different farms for pasture, hay and crop production. The Harrs also custom raise heifers for purebred outfits. Over the years, the Harrs have shown their Herefords all over the country, including at

“It’s awesome being right along Rt. 30 because people will pass by and say ‘look at the pretty Herefords’ and some will even stop in and say ‘do you want to sell a cow and calf ?’ Private treaty sales for being a small breeder are pretty phenomenal,” Lou Ellen said. But being so visible also has its downside because more and more people don’t know what life is like on a farm. “We’re really cautious. If there’s a thin cow, we don’t put her there. If people see her, they may not know that she’s simply old,” Lou Ellen said. “You have to be really careful and be on top of things. It’s all part of good management.” As a car slowed down along a back road on this day, Lou Ellen waved at the driver, a neighbor. “He’s probably wondering who is driving through the middle of the pasture. The neighbors are really good at watching out for us. They’ll call up in the winter and say ‘is there supposed to be a calf out here?’” Lou Ellen laughed. The Harrs are always looking for ways to improve their herd, including doing AI with better bulls every year, flushing more

cows, improving carcass traits and looking into genomic-enhanced EPDs. “I’m a real stickler about having a really good mineral program,” Lou Ellen said. “We’re a believer in sustainable nutrition. That you can’t really cheat them. You don’t need them to be hog fat but you don’t want to starve them to death.” Besides improving their herd, the family would like to increase the size to 75 to 100 momma cows. But in order to do that, they need more pasture, which isn’t easy to obtain. “When corn got to $8 a bushel, we lost several pastures,” Lou Ellen said. “People forgot the aesthetics of watching pretty cows and decided $8 a bushel for corn was worth bulldozing the fences. That was tough on us.” As the youngest generation on the farm, Keayla feels a responsibility to educate consumers about how her family raises their cattle, and it’s a job she readily embraces. “Teaching that consumer about what we as producers do is critical as we try to bridge that education gap,” she said. “We need to continue to be vigilant in protecting our livelihoods because we are coming

Larry Simmons Farms has grown, changed and found its stride outheastern Ohio is like no other part of the state. Its picture perfect rolling hills and natural waterways make for some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Although the hills of Athens County can make growing crops challenging, it is ideal for something…cattle. Larry Simmons and Matt Atha of Larry Simmons Farms in Coolville, Ohio, have taken advantage of the uneven land and created a perfect homestead for both their families and their cattle. Entering Larry Simmons Farms is like driving into a haven away from the all the busyness of the world. Its peacefulness sets not only its visitors, but also its 350 to 400 head of cattle at ease. Larry Simmons Farms began in 1995, when Larry purchased 600 acres from his Uncle Chapman. “One day, I can’t tell you why, I just went and bought the farm. I enjoyed the farm so much, I just kept buying more land,” Larry said, when asked

how he got started with the cattle. His interest in cattle peaked at a young age, with both sets of his grandparents owning cattle operations. In 1970, Larry Simmons graduated from Franklin University and became a teacher at Federal Hocking Local Schools. The year before, as a senior in college, Larry married the love of his life, Linda and later had three children, Michael, Jamie and Eric. During his six year education career, he began his own insurance company with himself being the very first customer. The farm started off with just a few commercial cows, but transitioned to mostly purebred Limousins in 2000. They stayed with this breed for about seven years, before another transition was made to Angus based cattle, which is what they raise today. The idea to transition to Angus cattle came in part from a young farm hand who previously worked for Paul Hill at Cham-

Feature pion Hill, an Angus farm, in Bidwell, Ohio, and became partial to the breed. This farm hand was Matt Atha, and he was soon to become a vital part of the operation. “I probably worked here almost a whole year before I even knew she existed,” Matt said, speaking about Larry’s daughter, Jamie. “She was going to school at Ohio University, so I had never seen her.” But it didn’t take long for them to hit it off. “Our first date was at Subway in Athens. I was judging a little local show, then went towards Springfield to look at cattle, and on our way back we stopped at Subway,” Matt recalls. Not too long after, they were married. They now have three children; Lane, 6; Adalyn, 3 and Colton, 2. Although all three of Larry’s children enjoy the farm, Jamie is the one who took a great interest in staying involved. Michael is a dedicated contributor to the insurance company, while Eric, who has Down’s syndrome, looks forward to ATV rides around the farm with his dad. Over time, Larry has given Matt full decision making power for the operations of the farm. “If it swims, it’s a pat on the back. If it sinks, well good try,” Matt said. “He has never questioned anything I did or criticized anything that has went wrong.” “Versatile is the perfect word to describe this cattle operation,” Matt said. Although, some of the practices he has instilled

84 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2014

may seem unconventional, they have led the farm to much success. He strives to artificially inseminate the cows and heifers on their natural cycles and uses herd bulls as well. Once the cattle are bred, he goes to great lengths to avoid C-sections, whenever possible, by breeding the cows to lower birth weight bulls. In order to fulfill their customer’s needs, they calve in both the spring and fall. When looking across the pastures of Larry Simmons Farms, you will see concrete basins spotting the fields. These basins are automatic waterers fed by underground springs. The troughs make cattle care more manageable as the water rarely freezes. Larry and Matt have had many successes over the lifetime of the farm. “It has taken 19 years to get the farm to where it’s at,” Larry commented. One of their biggest accomplishments came in 2004, when they set a new record for the high selling bull at

The beef check appears on all beef checkofffunded programs and materials. Look for the check and learn how your dollars are working for you!


I’m the generation that is always connected online. Farmers are not able to answer my questions about how beef is raised. Digital marketing will lead the way in sharing beef ’s message about nutrition, health and research and creating a forum for consumers to publicly share and celebrate their love for beef replacing the former print and television advertising campaigns. At the core of this shift in the new consumer target: older millennial parents. They are part of the largest and most connected generation ever. By 2020, their spending will hit $1.4 trillion dollars a year. Millennials will make beef-buying decisions for the next 40-plus years. Millennials are always finding new ways to gather and share recipes online, so the checkoff also has developed five new checkoff-funded online videos, now available on a new Keep It Simple section of BeefItsWhatsForDinner. com. These “no-recipe recipe” videos showcase beef in a contemporary and vibrant manner, offering simple yet delicious ways to fit beef into any meal occasion. The videos also are being shared on the checkoff ’s consumerfacing Facebook and Twitter pages.

The checkoff will reach out to its target audience of older millennial parents through its digital advertising campaign on websites frequently visited by these consumers – such as Food Network, Cooking Channel, AllRecipes. com, SELF, Men’s Fitness, BuzzFeed and more. The Ohio Beef Council’s Beef Bytes Blog relaunch is one way we are continually trying to reach the newly identified “Millennial” target demographic for promotion and marketing efforts in Ohio. Every Wednesday we offer an inside look at Ohio’s beef industry from pasture to plate. Whether it’s talking with a farmer, getting important nutritional information from professionals or sharing the latest delicious lean beef recipe, this platform was designed to encourage consumers to continue to learn about the beef on their dinner table. Our goal is not only to produce content to post on our blog, but also build social relationships with our consumers and other bloggers. It is important that we continue to remain present and connected in the digital space to reach this important group of consumers. They are constantly looking for information via electronic devices and it is important we have a multi-media beef message. The Ring 2014| Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 117


Beef is challenging to prepare, and since there are so many cuts to choose from and various cooking methods, I don’t know where to start. The checkoff ’s new Interactive Butcher Counter provides answers and ideas for consumers who are confused by the tremendous selection of beef cuts in their grocer’s meat case. Users can find a beef cut for any occasion by clicking ‘explore the cuts,’ ‘guide me to the right cut,’ or by searching the cut name. The tool then offers recommended cooking methods, as well as nutrition information and recipes for the selected cut – and it works with smart phones, tablets and laptop or desktop computers. The checkoff has also launched a new online community called Ask Beef, to provide consumers with a way to get

their beef questions answered. At Ask Beef, consumers are asking a variety of questions, such as “How do I cook the perfect steak?” or “How do I choose the right ground beef for my recipes?” The checkoff has experts including dietitians, chefs, farmers and ranchers available to share the answers to all of the consumers sizzling questions.

I see lots of different Materials on hot topics like sustainability and GMOs. How do I find information I can trust? Often time consumers become confused with the many myths and misperceptions that exist about the beef industry. The beef checkoff has a number of resources and methods to ensure that consumers understand the entire beef story. FactsAboutBeef.com, which aims to dispel myths and issues in the beef industry, is the foremost comprehensive source of beef “facts” including the discussion of animal care, beef safety, cattle nutrition, and the extend role of the beef community. Thanks to search engine optimization of key consumer questions, this website can become the first choice of information for those asking questions digitally. A few popular articles

on the checkoff ’s FactsAboutBeef.com site include: Safety First: The Role of GMOs in Cattle Feed, which highlights studies of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and the fact there is no nutritional difference between GMO and non-GMO crops; and Raising Beef Isn’t Sustainable? It’s More Sustainable Than You Think, which addresses concerns about sustainability of beef production and highlights findings of the recently completed beef industry lifecycle assessment. Facts About Beef is also an excellent resource for producers to inform themselves on effective and appropriate messaging to answer questions that neighbors and consumers may have about modern beef production.

I’ve heard from some nutritionists that I should cut back on the amount of red meat in my diet. Health professional engagement is just one way the Ohio Beef Council is continually working to improve the image of beef. OBC works to reinforce national nutrition efforts in Ohio by connecting with nutrition influencers at the grass roots level. Registered dieticians play a key role in providing consumers with important nutrition information and their support of the beef industry is essential to our efforts. Checkoff dollars allow the Ohio Beef Council to be an important part of the Ohio Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic Conference. As a sponsoring partner of the event the Ohio Beef Council takes advantage of several excellent opportunities to discuss the benefits and importance of beef on every plate with nutritional professionals. The checkoff funded Nutritional Seminar Program provides nutrition experts to speak on behalf of the industry at the conference’s sessions. Attendees also receive a set of beef-specific reference tools and nutrition education materials for use in their practices. The Ohio Beef Council conducted a Pasture to Plate Tour with a select group of dieticians, meat department managers, and media to

continue to communicate the beef story. This event provided a comprehensive look at the beef cattle community. Participants were able to tour a family owned beef cattle operation. On the farm they learned about how genetic improvement and modern technology in the seedstock sector has resulted in a more consistent beef product. We continued the discussion on the farm about how cattlemen, nutritionists and veterinarians work together to create a safe, high quality product. The attendees also stepped into the cutting room to learn about carcass fabrication including a discussion of the petite tender and flat iron steak. These two cuts were “rediscovered” as a result of the checkoff funded muscling profiling study. The day concluded with a presentation of the beef checkoff funded nutrition research that supports the nutritional benefits of beef and its role in a healthy diet. Subject matter included the chronicling of today’s leaner beef supply and the BOLD (Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet) study that supports beef ’s role in a heart healthy, cholesterol lowering diet. v The Ring 2014| Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 119

Today’s cattlemen can improve herd genetics through numerous reproductive technology tools, but how do you choose the “right” one? By John F. Grimes, OSU Extension Beef Coordinator

have always respected a person with some mechanical ability. I suppose this is due in large part to the fact that I have always felt that I was lacking in talent in this area. A good mechanic has the ability to match the proper tools for a specific job in order to complete the task as effectively and efficiently as possible. This person is usually well-known within a community and their services are usually in high demand. A good cow-calf producer is similar to a good mechanic. Today’s seedstock and club calf producer has many management tools available at their disposal to aid them in the task of improving their next calf crop. An effective producer aggressively uses the available technology that best fits their particular situation. The producers that use these tools to improve the quality of their calf crops will hopefully be rewarded with improved demand and higher sale prices for their cattle in today’s highly competitive seedstock and club calf markets. In this article, we will discuss some of the technologies available to seedstock and club calf producers. Some of these can be used by both of these segments of the industry while some are better suited for one particular group.

Expected Progeny Differences Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) provide estimates of the genetic value of an animal as a parent and are calculated from pedigree information, actual performance, and genomic tests. EPDs help identify cattle that are superior for any trait that a breeder may want to attempt to make genetic improvement. EPDs are expressed in units of measure for the trait, plus or minus, and can be compared against other animals in a given breed through percentile charts published by the breed association. For example, a – 1.0 Birth Weight EPD on an Angus bull may not mean much to you as a single number. However, when you learn that it ranks in the top 10% of the breed for that trait you may consider him a viable choice for use on heifers to minimize calving difficulties. EPDs associated with registered cattle provide a greater benefit to seedstock producers using A.I. compared to club calf producers. Seedstock producers that strive to produce cattle for registered or commercial breeders must provide animals that excel in multiple traits such as calving ease, weaning weight, yearling weight, milk, and carcass traits. Club calf producers generally prioritize phenotype in sire selection and have fewer EPDs available to them due to the use of

Feature

crossbred breeding animals used in their herds. A quick look at catalogs from companies that merchandise semen will show the dramatic difference in information available on sires for seedstock production compared to sires utilized by the club calf industry. I would recommend that a producer involved in either of these industries utilize EPDs as much as possible when making genetic decisions that will impact your herd. EPDs are simply the most reliable tool that we have to evaluate the differences between beef animals. Evaluations based on individual performance alone can be a risky proposition. Actual birth, weaning, and yearling weights can be greatly skewed by the level of management applied to a given animal. Can you accurately evaluate the genetic differences for yearling weight for two bulls where one bull has been fed a forage-based diet in a group of 50 bulls and the other bull has spent his life in a show barn? I would definitely hesitate to use a sire on virgin heifers based on a reported actual birth weight without the added support of EPDs. Artificial Insemination Artificial insemination (A.I.) is not a new technology and is readily available to both seedstock and club calf producers. Simply put, A.I. allows producers to mate their cows to superior sires from across the country. While less than 10% of the beef cow-calf producers in the U.S. producers utilize A.I., a larger percentage of these two specialized segments use A.I. Sexed semen is often discussed as a means to increase the impact of A.I. in a

given herd. There are obvious benefits for seedstock and club calf producers to increase the number of calves from a given gender. A seedstock producer may prefer either sex of calves depending on if they emphasize bull or female sales. The club calf producer probably would prefer more male calves for potential steer calf sales. Another potential use of sexed semen for the club calf industry would be the use of female sexed semen from more maternaloriented breeds to improve calving ease from first-calf heifers and add more maternal influence to replacement females. Sex-sorting sperm relies on the fact the bovine X (female) chromosome has 3.8% more DNA than the Y (male) chromosome. This principle enables sperm to be sorted using a flow cytometer. However, the process damages sperm and reduces fertility when compared to conventional semen. Also keep in mind that straws of sexed semen typically contain many less sperm cells (as much as 8-10 times fewer) than conventional semen. Research indicates that pregnancy rates with sexed semen are generally 70-90% of those achieved with conventional semen. Sexed semen has also produced inconsistent and often substandard results for producers using embryo transfer. Sexed semen typically is much more expensive than conventional semen on the same sire. While A.I. has afforded producers the access to any number of superior sires in their breeding programs, this management tool is frequently mismanaged. The competitive nature

124 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2014


Feature of the seedstock and club calf industry often pressures producers to use the latest, greatest “hot” young sire. If a breeder is doing a good job of genetic selection, the offspring from a mating should be superior to the parents. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way. A producer rarely goes wrong by using proven genetics. Seedstock producers have the luxury of EPDs, genomics, and greater breed uniformity to help minimize their mistakes. Matings made by the club calf industry are often from crossbred parents of multiple breeds which lends itself to less consistent results and diminished performance when compared to two- and three-way cross calves. Pregnancy Testing Determining the pregnancy status of beef cattle continues to be one of the most underutilized yet relatively easy to implement management practices available to beef producers. Results from the 2007-08 National Animal Health Monitoring System Beef Study indicated that approximately 18% of cow-calf operations utilized palpation as a tool for diagnosing pregnancy status. Today, there are three basic technologies available to the producer for pregnancy checking: traditional palpation, ultrasound, and blood testing. The most obvious reason for pregnancy checking is to identify non-pregnant or open females for sale as a means to reduce feed expenses. The relatively inexpensive cost of a pregnancy check of $5-$10 can lead to major savings. A significant feed bill can accumulate in the time it would take for an open female to become pregnant, calve, and wean a calf before it can be sold to cover expenses. It would have to be a very “special” open female to justify keeping her around to calve at a much later date. There are other advantages for determining pregnancy status of the female. It can allow the producer to estimate age of fetus at time of examination to help determine calving date.

Determining pregnancy rates may also provide an indication of problems in a herd which can possibly be corrected earlier. Some of these problems may include poor bull fertility, poor body condition of females (4 BCS or less), poor forage quality and/or quantity, reproductive diseases, environmental stress, and other issues. These technologies are addressed in a video covering the topic of “Determining Pregnancy Status of Beef Cattle” that has been posted at the OSU Extension Beef Team’s web site located at www.beef.osu.edu. Advanced Reproductive Technologies Advanced reproductive technologies are tools that can help the seedstock or club calf industry produce more offspring from a cow and can extend the impact of outstanding cattle genetics. These technologies include embryo transfer (ET), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and cloning. ET involves the treatment of donor cows and heifers with follicle stimulating hormone to cause multiple follicles to ovulate. The donors are bred using artificial insemination (AI) following this superovulation regime at estrus or standing heat. Approximately The Ring 2014| Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 125

“Today’s seedstock and club calf producer has many management tools available at their disposal to aid them in the task of improving their next calf crop. Carefully evaluate your particular production goals when choosing the ‘right’ tool for the job.” seven days after insemination, embryos are non-surgically collected or “flushed” from the donor’s uterus and transferred fresh into synchronous recipients who will serve as surrogate mothers. The embryos may also be frozen to be transferred at a later point in time. The frozen embryos will be maintained in liquid nitrogen storage tanks until they are thawed and transferred. IVF is the process of creating embryos from oocytes (unfertilized egg cells) by fertilizing them with semen in a Petri dish. Oocytes are first collected from the ovaries of donors by ultrasound-guided follicular aspiration. Oocytes are then placed in a Petri dish and fertilized the following day with conventional, sexed-frozen, or reverse-sorted semen. They then mature in an incubator for seven additional days, and the resulting viable embryos are transferred into recipients. Embryos resulting from IVF can be frozen but there are limitations in regards to the freezing and transfer process and there is less data on typical pregnancy rates. While reproductively sound donors are most likely to achieve success in IVF, this technology is an option for those females unable to achieve success in conventional ET. Cloning technology allows breeders to recreate the genotype of a superior female or male animal, providing a source to extend their genetic influence. Tissue is collected from a donor animal and cultured for several weeks to produce literally millions of cells, which are then frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen for future use. The stored cell line is then used to create cloned embryos of the original donor animal. Cloning can be used to re-create highly valued animals that have been lost, compromised reproductively, or have truly unique marketing potential. This is an

extremely expensive process that can only be justified in the rarest situations. The decision to utilize ET or IVF on a particular female should not be taken lightly and must be based on the economic factors associated with the operation. Any cow can become a donor cow if you administer follicle stimulating hormone to her and carry out the ET process. But does she deserve to be a donor? It is my opinion that for a female to become a donor, she must possess unique genetic or phenotypic merit to produce calves of substantially higher economic value than the typical calves produced through A.I. or natural matings in your herd. I caution the producer to be realistic with their production and marketing goals when evaluating a donor candidate. A “typical” donor will produce approximately six eggs per flush and conception rates should average in the 50-60% range. Results can vary greatly from these numbers. Calves produced from embryo transfer can cost several hundred dollars more than their conventionally produced counterparts. Before you utilize ET, you should have a realistic marketing plan in place that can merchandise ET calves at a premium price that will justify the added production expenses. The “Right” Tool for the Job Each of the technologies discussed in this article can be a valuable tool for the seedstock or club calf producer in their efforts to produce the maximum number of highly valued calves from their next calf crop. Tools such as EPDs and pregnancy testing can easily be adopted by the producer. Sexed semen and ET are more specialized tools to be used for very specific situations. Carefully evaluate your particular production goals when choosing the “right” tool for the job.v

2-4-3-1. I ranked the Continental heifers 2431. 2’s the quality female of the group that brings forth an impressive profile, while dominating in terms of functional width and dimension. She could be a bit longer strided and smoother in her tail head, but when compared to 4, the shoulder branded heifer is not only more genuine in terms of her condition, but also is considerably wider chested, bolder ribbed and stouter pinned. I’m not surprised the Shorthorn influenced heifer excels in maternal character, being the softest bodied and traveling with as much comfort as any off either end of her framework. But it’s hard to tie into one that closes up so much down low so I left her second. Still, basic brood cow utility keeps me from switching the middle. When compared to 3, the blue roan owns the advantage when set into motion, in that she takes a longer, more comfortable stride off either end of her framework as a result of being more correct in her angles.

But functionally speaking, she’s not a top pair contender. 3 studies the straightest off both ends and consequently roaches on the move, while planting outside of her skeleton at the surface. Despite this, I still favored her extra dimension over 1 in my final pair. To be concise, 3 is bigger bodied, more expressive and higher performing. 1 is definitely sounder and more correct in her lines. Unfortunately, this white uddered, green conditioned heifer gives up too much substance to come off bottom. She’s the narrowest, shallowest and lowest performing, so she’s fourth. v ansci.osu.edu/livestock-judging-team/ The Ring 2014| Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 131
