Feature

More than a Passion Tuscarawas County youths learn life lessons on their Simmental farm, in the show ring Story and photos by Amy Beth Graves

S S

tanding in thigh-high grass on a hill overlooking his family farm, Cole Liggett takes a moment to gather his thoughts. The 19-year-old is reflecting on what he likes the most about raising purebred Simmental. As the cattle quietly graze below, the words slowly spill out. “This is my favorite spot. The farm is so peaceful up here. I can go up on the hill and sit and watch and not get bored with the view,” he says. “Taking care of the cattle is kind of relaxing. It’s also hard work, but it doesn’t feel like hard work because I love it.” Later his siblings, 17-year-old Cade and 9-year-old Kate, echo Cole’s thoughts, saying they love the time they spend taking care of the cattle on their rolling Tuscarawas County farm located in Dennison. “(Raising cattle) teaches you a lot about responsibility,” Cade said. “You have to take care and tend for a living animal that you have to feed and water every day. It’s like taking care of a baby -- there’s a

10 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017

lot of responsibility.” “And you create a strong work ethic and learn about time management,” Cole chimed in. For parents, Matt and Ruthie, they enjoy hearing their children describe their love of raising cattle and living on the farm. The farm dates back to the early 1800s on Matt’s side of the family. His great-grandfather at one point had a feed store and the farm has always had some type of cattle on its hilly terrain. Ruthie grew up just down the road, and the couple have been together for more than a quarter of a century. Today, the family raises about 30 purebred Simmentals on 200 acres of the original homestead and 100 commercial cows on 400 acres where the Liggetts have a house and Matt’s business, Circle L Fence, a fencing company that specializes in fencing for the agricultural and security industries. They rent the farmland from the family trust. The Liggetts’ start with the Simmental breed dates back to the mid 1980s when


The Ring 2017 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 11


Feature Matt started showing purebred cattle for 4-H projects. The interest in purebred cattle faded after Matt went away to college but was revived when Cole started showing at age 9. Matt reached out to a Simmental breeder, Silver Towne Farms, in Indiana that he knew from his 4-H days. “I tracked his number down and called him up out of the blue one day when Cole was younger and we started buying heifers from them,” he said. Raising cattle has turned out to be more than a hobby for Cole. It’s put him on his current career path. He’s just finished his first year at Kansas State University where he’s majoring in animal science with a pre-veterinary option. His ultimate goal is to become an embryologist and attend Ohio State University. Livestock judging is an area that Cole has developed a real passion for over the past 10 years. “The first (judging) contest he went to was at the state fair and he didn’t have any practice or anything. He finished second to last,” Matt said of his oldest son. “Last year at the junior national show, he won senior division of judging. That’s how far he’s come.” It was Cole’s desire to improve his judging skills that led him to Kansas State. “I went to a livestock judging camp there and afterward toured the campus and fell in love with the place,” he said. “It’s smaller and my being from a small town, it was a good fit. Plus there are a lot of ag kids out there and it kind of felt like home.” Excited about the opportunity to be a collegiate judge, Cole was disappointed to learn he couldn’t be a livestock judge until his junior and senior year. But then he learned he could be on the dairy judging team as a freshman and joined the team in the spring. It turned out to be a good move because not only was he keeping his judging skills sharp but he was learning all about the dairy industry. “I love being around animals and evaluating them and then having to defend myself. It’s taught me so much like how to talk in front of people and I’ve met a 12 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017

ton of new people,” he said. “Now I can go out and pick my own cattle without my parents helping me, and I’ve learned a little bit about every species, which will help me in the future.” His younger brother, Cade, is most proud of winning the junior division of the public speaking contest at the Simmental National Classic. Improving his public speaking skills will help the high school junior in his many leadership


Feature positions, including as president of the Ohio Juniors Simmental Association and president of the local 4-H club. For Kate, her first show was at the American Junior Simmental’s National Classic last year in Iowa where she placed in the middle of her class. This past May at the Ohio Simmental’s Memorial Day Classic, the fourth grader had champion purebred cow calf pair. With Cole continuing to show an

broker to sell the commercial calves out West. They are sold as preconditioned feeder calves and leave the farm when they reach between 600-700 pounds. The family does rotational grazing and has made improvements to the land by putting in spring developments, stream water access and riparian buffer areas to protect the streams and forest. Cole, who describes himself as a competitive person, is currently serving a

interest in the purebred Simmentals, the family has set a goal of improving and increasing the number of Simmentals from 30 to 50 head. They’re keeping most of their replacement heifers and selling some through private treaty and at the Ohio Beef Expo where Circle L Fence is a trade show exhibitor. With 20 employees and five crews to manage every day, Matt has little time to help out with the cattle and relies heavily on the kids and his father, Dick, who concentrates on the commercial side of the operation. “When I was just out of college, we had about 200 head but when I started the fencing company, my time got short and we had to cut back,” said Matt, who graduated from the University of Mount Union with a degree in business administration and economics. He said Ruthie, who graduated this spring from nursing school, helps out on an as-needed basis with the cattle. Her favorite time of the year is calving season when the family jumps into the Gator and travels over the hills to see if there are any newborns. For years, the Liggetts have used a

two-year term on the board of the American Junior Simmental Association. He’s determined to continue to have success in both the showring and as a judge. In June at the Eastern Regional Classic held in Ohio, he had champion purebred bred and owned heifer. “We’ve spent a lot of money over the years (on purebreds) but we didn’t spend it to win. We did it to try to breed better animals and improve our herd,” said Matt, who is a Union Township trustee and vice chairman of the Tuscarawas County Soil and Water Conservation District board. “Our ultimate goal was to raise our own show heifers and not have to buy them.” Cole’s goal is to return to the farm some day and concentrate on the purebred side of the family business. “I’d like to have a production sale once we’re big enough to sell to 4-H kids and those showing in the showring,” he said. “Showing cattle has been life changing for me. I’ve met so many people and it has helped put me on the right path.”  The Ring 2017 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 13

A Mother-Daughter Duo For Kathy and her mom, Angie, showing cattle is a bonding experience like no other. Story and photos by Lauren Corry

AD

Feature Reserve Champion MaineTainer female in the Open Maine-Anjou show. “I remember our first banner. After that first year, I thought ‘We’ll never do any better than this.’.” Angie said. Little did she know the success that would come their way in just a few years. Kathy quickly found a home among many others involved in the industry. She and her mom enjoyed going to all the shows and spending time with the people they met at each, so her third year showing cattle, the Lehmans decided to join the BEST program. The mother and daughter duo laughed as they reminisced over the beginning of their show career. The Howard Johnson is a popular hotel in Lima where many exhibitors and their families, including the Lehmans, stay during the first BEST show of the season, the Heart of it All. “I thought the Howard Johnson was the best thing ever!” Kathy proclaimed. “We never traveled or went anywhere, and going to shows beat staying home. It was the only vacation we got,” Angie explained. Six years and several accomplishments later, Kathy and Angie have become more ambitious, gradually adding more numbers to their herd of 11 cows and 9 heifers. “We said we were never going

to do more than 4. Now we have 6,” said Angie. This year, the mother-daughter team had a full barn of show heifers, and even had to add a new pen, for the Chianina, Charolais, Hereford, ShorthornPlus and two MaineTainer heifers. When it comes to breeds, Kathy said she “spreads the love” and enjoys learning about new breeds and the characteristics unique to each. Kathy’s favorite heifer, Princess, her Charolais she showed last year, was a work in progress. Kathy described her with a smile as “a little clubby, a little different, a little wild at the 2016 Ohio Beef Expo. She didn’t do very well that day.” Then, last summer, Kathy achieved a great title when Princess was deemed Reserve Grand Champion Owned Female at Charolais Junior Nationals. “All I ever wanted was to get a piece of Junior Nationals. That was really cool,” said Kathy. Princess’ success did not stop there. In the fall, she was selected as Reserve Grand Champion Junior Charolais female at NAILE. No matter the title, for the Lehmans, it’s all about getting to work with the people in the industry. What makes the people so great are the qualities they possess, hard-working, dedicated, driven


Feature is to have an online sale with the calves from all of her retired show heifers. One day she hopes to share her herd’s successful genetics with other exhibitors. “I’d like to always keep the cattle. It’ll be interesting to see where [the operation] ends up. We’d like to build a really good set of competitive heifers that can turn around and be marketable as cows as well,” said Kathy. Angie’s advice for other parents looking to get started showing? “Get involved. Go to every show. There are only so many of these years. I’m glad Kathy and I could get into all this trouble together,” she smiled. “I wouldn’t be where I am today, and our program wouldn’t be where it is without my mom,” said Kathy.  individuals, Kathy described. “Even when you don’t win you make so many great memories. Showing cattle is just what we love to do.” The Lehmans graciously recognized all the people that helped them along the way: the Grauer Family, Noah Skrinjar, the Goettemoeller Family, Tim Schaeffer, Cody Vance and many, many others who have helped with everything from breeding to fitting to always being willing to answer questions. “Without them, we never would have made it past [Clementine],” Angie laughed. Kathy is an only child, so gets her mom all to herself. When the two aren’t working cattle, Angie has about 100 rose bushes that she tends to, and Kathy helps her fertilize, spray and pull weeds. Angie sells the roses at two local markets, makes floral arrangements and occasionally provides her flowers for weddings of close friends. As Kathy looks forward to the future, she aspires to attend The Ohio State University Mansfield branch to be a middle school teacher with a focus in English. The branch campus is not far from home, so she can stay close by and continue to watch over her cattle. In hopes of building a dynamic breeding herd, the Lehmans mainly use sexed semen.

Faith.Family.Friends.Farm. The Boyerts strive for constant improvement while focusing on family values. Story and photos by Lauren Corry

O

ver the years, the Boyert family from Seville, Ohio has created a family-oriented business and cattle operation focused on teamwork and paying forward. Mike and Patti Boyert are the owners of Boyert’s Greenhouse & Farm in Medina County. Mike grew up in the tomato business, and Patti grew up in the flower business, both in Brooklyn Heights, a suburb of Cleveland. However, Mike’s true passion was always raising livestock. “Our parents told us both, ‘Whatever you do, do not go into agriculture.’,” recalled Patti. Their parents had reason for saying so, considering the overall economic crisis of the agriculture industry at the time. Interest rates were as high as 18.75 percent when they bought their farm. Their parents said they were crazy, and the banks said they would never make it, but Mike and Patti didn’t listen. At one particular trip to the bank, the couple laid out their comprehensive plans of their hopeful greenhouse, but 88 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017

the bank still refused financing. “As I was walking out the door. I turned around, looked [the banker] right in the eye and said ‘You made a big mistake. It’s going to work.’,” said Mike. Mike was right. Today, Boyert’s Greenhouse & Farm is a thriving operation. Not including outdoor growing space, the retail store and greenhouses sit on 13 acres. In the fall, they open the farm for structured school tours, and approximately 8,000 people visit the farm and greenhouse. During this time, they share with teachers, parents and students where food and fiber comes from, to bring their visitors closer to agriculture. Mike and Patti passed on their determination and passion to their six adult children, Bekah, Matt, Jared, Jake, Anna and Clayton. The kids have openly recognized the many values their parents instilled in them growing up while working on the farm and at the greenhouse. Even with their parents’ encouragement to pursue outside

Feature interests, three of the six, Bekah, Jake and Clayton, continue to work there full time. Matt and his family lives in Milwaukee, but he still makes the trip home whenever possible on the greenhouse’s busy weekends to help the others. The family has a sign hung in their kitchen overlooking the dining room table. The sign serves as a reminder of what is important to the family. It says, “Faith. Family. Friends. Amen.,” but the Boyerts like to include another word, “Farm.” The 120-acre farm began in 1981 when Mike and Patti bought their first five purebred Angus heifers. Once the kids became involved, the family began showing Shorthorns exclusively. Moving from the county level to the state and national levels. In the beginning, all the Boyert kids exhibited cattle in 4-H, but Jared, Jake and Clayton especially had an affinity for their projects. “We let the boys make decisions early on with the cattle. If they made a mistake, they learned from it, and they knew what they needed to fix to get better,” said Patti. For the boys, the motivation for improvement was after an experience in Louisville at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) where they once stood last in class. After that moment, the brothers decided they had to figure out a way to improve. Their enthusiasm to learn more and do

better lead all three to attend Black Hawk College, a junior college in Kewanee, Illinois, where they were members of the school’s livestock judging team. Jake continued his judging career at Ohio State while both Jared and Clayton graduated from Western Illinois. Armed with a passion to learn, a desire for constant improvement and a solid work ethic, the brothers found mentors at school and within the industry. Now, the Boyert family name is nationally-renowned across multiple breeds. Jake explained much of the brothers’ success is due to the example set by their parents. The foundation of their beliefs are quality customer service, a quality product and cleanliness, and these promises are not only relevant to the greenhouse business, but also the family cattle operation. “We want [the heifers] we sell to do well in the show ring, but ultimately, we want them to make good cows,” said Jake. The Boyerts host several different sales throughout the year. Last year was the first year for steer, fall-born heifers and embryo sales. They plan to continuously keep improving the quality and growing each sale in size. As of now, the brothers include some consignments from other breeders as well, but they believe each lot must be something they would want to purchase for their own operation. Having multiple sales meant expand-

“We have a great family, but we also have great people around us, and

you’re only as good as the people around you.” - Matt Boyert ing their involvement into other breeds and diversifying the herd. Growing up, the Boyerts showed only Shorthorn cattle, but now the brothers are working with many different breeds to some extent, including Angus, Charolais, Chianina, Herefords and Maine-Anjou. Charolais have more recently become a focus because the various possibilities the breed has to offer, especially their durability and low-maintenance characteristics. Even though he is not still directly involved in the cattle industry, Matt, the second eldest, works for an insurance company in the ag business department in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He has carried with him the lessons he learned on the farm and at the greenhouse. “I take great pride in surrounding myself with great people, and that’s what our parents taught us. We have a great family, but we also have great people around us, and you’re only as good as the people around you,” said Matt. The boys had several different mentors in the industry along the way, and they believe they wouldn’t be where they are today without the people who took interest in them. Jared, Jake and Clayton are working to return the favor by helping other juniors get their start and stay involved. “It’s really neat watching the kids we’ve helped as they grow and develop,” said Jake. “A girl we helped get started had no experience with livestock, and now she can do it all on her own.” The girl, Allie Loftis, gets dropped off at the Boyerts’ farm during the summer and

stays all day. Due to their help, she’s now had her own successes. Evaluating cattle and other livestock has taught the boys valuable lessons from public speaking to decision making. Jake shared the reason why he continues to judge is for the youth in the industry. He enjoys sharing showmanship advice and spending time with the kids who share his passion for the industry. Whether it’s the greenhouse or cattle operation, the family works together as a team. No matter their differences, they share the same values. “The coolest thing is we all get to work together. We get along really well and we make it happen,” said Jake. 

Feature

An Outlook on the Beef Industry The future is bright for the beef industry, but success won’t come easy. John F. Grimes, OSU Extension Beef Coordinator

T T

he beef industry has had very interesting “ride” in this decade thus far. In reality, it may be the most eventful and volatile decade in modern history for all aspects of beef production. Every beef producer I know has been impacted by factors such as record high cattle prices, high feed costs, drought, government regulations, trade policies and consumer desires to name a few. Some of these events could be predicted, while others were very unexpected. The truth of the matter is that predicting the economic outlook for any industry can a tricky business. I am certainly not an economist, but I do try to stay abreast of changes and trends that impact the beef industry. In this article, I would like to review how recent history is impacting the current and future outlook for beef producers. The drought that impacted much of the geographical area of the country

earlier in the decade set in motion many of the economic changes over the past few years. Forage and water shortages caused by drought forced many producers to significantly reduce herd numbers. This resulted in the nation’s beef cow herd being reduced to approximately 29 million cows, the lowest numbers seen in over 50 years. The laws of supply and demand kicked in, and prices for all classes of beef cattle quickly escalated to record levels. Cattlemen received the economic signals and responded by rapidly increasing the size of the breeding herd as drought concerns lessened. This expansion has allowed cow-calf producers to increase the nation’s cow herd to an expected 32 million head by the beginning of 2018. The top five states that raise cattle and calves currently are Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, California and Oklahoma, respectively. Ask beef producers today about their opinion of cattle prices in the current

Feature market, and you are likely to get a wide range of answers. The record high cattle prices seen in 2014 and 2015 have probably clouded the judgement of individuals in regards to prices in today’s market from a historical perspective. Prices through the first half in 2017 have been surprisingly strong but are expected to moderate in the second half of the year as cattle supplies increase. Foreign trade has always been an important component of the overall beef economy. The U.S. typically exports 1015 percent of our production and export sales in 2016 totaled over $6.3 billion.

or slaughtered in the U.S. are eligible. Cattle must be traceable to the U.S. birth farm through a unique tag identifier and less than 30 months of age to produce eligible beef. There are also restrictions on certain growth promotants and other feed additives. It remains to be seen as to how responsive the U.S. beef industry will be to this new marketing opportunity. The beef industry must never lose sight of the importance of the U.S. consumer to our continued success and viability. Today’s consumer is more demanding about how their food is produced, the quality and safety of their

“I expect that in the years to come, consumer demands will increase and marketing will become more creative.” The leading export markets in terms of value in 2016 were in order Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Canada, and Hong Kong. The U.S. is currently the world’s fourthlargest exporter of beef. There have been significant developments this year impacting the potential growth in U.S. beef exports. Earlier this year, the United States and China agreed to start the commercial shipment of U.S. beef and beef products to China for the first time since 2003. Until the ban took effect, the U.S. was China’s largest supplier of imported beef at roughly 70 percent of their intake. The growth in China’s economy has allowed China to be a major beef buyer as purchased imports have increased over the past five years by over $2 billion. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service have updated China’s requirements for certifying U.S. beef being shipped there. These requirements include specific language that beef and beef products from cattle that were born, raised and harvested in the U.S. as well as cattle imported from Canada or Mexico that were raised and/

food and the value received for their dollars spent. Think about how things have changed throughout this decade. Food companies are becoming more aggressive in marketing their products and the increased use of social media has given them new outlets for their campaigns. Terms such as locally grown, sustainably raised, organically produced, grass-fed, all-natural, and hormone- and antibiotic-free are just a few examples of the new language used in marketing today. I expect that in the years to come, consumer demands will increase and marketing will become more creative. New technologies and communications outlets will allow the consumer to ask more questions and learn more about food production. The entire beef industry can also use these avenues to direct the story and better educate consumers about modern beef production. The consumer appears to be willing to pay more (to a point) for quality, and the beef industry is responding to the challenge. In 2017, the beef industry is consistently producing

Feature over 70 percent of the carcasses grading Choice and higher. The popularity of branded beef programs such as Certified Angus Beef and others are a prime example of the consumer’s demand for quality. The growth of companies that provide the home delivery of ready-toprepare meals indicate the importance of convenience and value to today’s consumer. While I am very optimistic about the future of the beef industry, I do have some concerns about who will be there to produce our product in the years to come. According to the 2012 USDA’s Census of Agriculture, the average age of a beef producer/rancher was 58.3. It is more challenging than ever for young adults to become active in production agriculture and beef production. The financial requirements to enter into the business can be very intimidating. Unfortunately, not every aspiring young producer has the opportunity to enter into an established family operation. If this is not an option, young adults can try to identify a producer that does not have a next generation to assume control of their operation. There are examples of where partnerships have been formed and long-term transition plans made that would allow younger

producers to become actively involved in the industry. If ownership of an operation is not possible, there are options available to become involved in the beef industry. I firmly believe there will be job opportunities available for aggressive, well-educated and hard-working individuals that want to work on an operation that raises beef cattle. There are a shrinking number of potential employees that have the husbandry skills to fill on-farm jobs. There will always be a need for careers in industries that support production agriculture such as veterinarians, nutritionists, crop consultants, education, marketing, engineering, computer specialists, software developers and others. I also believe there will be a strong demand for talent in food science and safety and animal bioscience positions. I believe there is a very positive outlook for the U.S. beef industry, domestically and internationally. We are uniquely positioned for success due to our competitive advantage in the quality of cattle, natural resources, infrastructure and our people. We must continue to improve each of these areas for our beef industry to remain viable for the current and future generations. 

A Family Legacy The Leonhardts and Millenbaughs have been in the show ring for generations together. Story and photos by Lauren Corry

I

n 1953 Dorsey Leonhardt, of Crawford County, went to a cattle sale with his vocational agriculture teacher looking for a steer, but the sale only had heifers. Dorsey bought two heifers anyway and his teacher hauled them home for him. However, when he arrived home with heifers instead of a steer, Dorsey’s father was upset to say the least. Unfortunately, Dorsey’s heifers were trouble. One heifer was not able to be bred and the other heifer had a nice calf -- that died a few months later. Since then, Dorsey has come to agree with his father. “The old man proved right. A heifer will never make a dollar and we got too good of ground to have cows.” Thus, begins the legacy of the Leonhardt and Millenbaugh show careers: Mike, Janet, and her three daughters: Amber (25), Jessica (21) and Lori (17). The family has been competitively showing steers in Ohio for almost half a century.

The Leonhardt and Millenbaugh steers have been selected as either grand or reserve champion at two Ohio State Fairs, three Ohio Beef Expos and 28 Crawford County Fairs since 1970. Add the numerous top five placings at the aforementioned shows as well as various OCA BEST and preview shows across the state, and the result is one extremely decorated family. The Millenbaughs and Leonhardts agreed what they treasured most was all the memories made behind the scenes. They just have fun showing together. Years ago, after a not-so-good day at a show, Janet asked her daughters a question. “We were heading back to the hotel, and I turned and asked ‘Did you guys have fun?’.” The girls nodded and said they did. “Well, it’s a good thing you said you had fun, because the first time you said you didn’t, we were never going to show again,” Janet explained. A few years ago, the family was dreading the day Lori would finish her junior

130 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017


Feature show career. They thought Lori would be the last showman in the family. That was until Amber got engaged at the 2016 Ohio Beef Expo to Joe Kovach. Amber has become a mother to Joe’s 8-year-old daughter, Haylie. After Haylie, comes Amber and Joe’s son, Jace Dorsey, who is just a few months old. Amber is excited to share the family’s passion with her children, and hopes they can eventually show calves they’ve raised themselves thanks to Jessica’s future plans. Now, there won’t be a gap at all, and the family can continue to do what they love as a team. As young as three years old, Jessica could be found out in the barn with Mike everyday, just wanting to help out however she could. Just as she was old enough to show, Dorsey jokingly asked Jessica if she would be paying for her steer. Jessica adamantly said she would. She went home, gathered her change to a sum of $11.00 and presented it to her grandfather. Needless to say, he was kind enough to front her the rest of the money.Jessica’s drive and determination continues to be strong to this day. Last year, she decided she wanted to try showing heifers for the first time. Now, despite Dorsey’s beliefs, she is trying her best to build a herd. “This isn’t cow country. This is corn and bean country. Cows belong in the hills,” said Dorsey. Yet, the family has one cow and three heifers -with plans to expand. Since showing her first heifer, Jessica has gone to A.I. classes and learned more about breeding programs. “I would like to have a decent-sized herd one day and keep cows in the family,” said Jessica. “I want to keep cattle in my life.” Lori is not finished yet either. “I am so proud of Lori it’s not even funny,” said Jessica. She recognized Lori and her mother’s help with her animals while she was away at school. Lori was the bashful one, and the family was worried Lori would never want to show livestock. Now the family is sure Lori is striving for achievement beyond all others. She has finished almost each BEST season in the top five of her showmanship age division.

Proven time and time again, the girls’ biggest supporters are Dorsey and his wife, Shirley. The couple has been sitting in the stands at shows cheering on each generation through it all. “The first thing we do [in the ring] is scan the stands and look for Grandma and Grandpa. Every time we do well, you can hear Grandpa ‘Woop!’,” said Amber. Not far behind is Jim Finney, Janet’s husband and Uncle Mike who hardly miss a show. “If Jim doesn’t have your jacket and the halter, it’s bad luck,” said Jessica. All the girls nodded in agreement. Mike attends shows from set-up until tear down and provides comic relief in stressful situations. He has served as a constant mentor and friend and works to pass down his knowledge and experience to the sisters. “I’m just very proud of the girls. They can conquer anything in their path because of the skills they gained from showing cattle,” said Janet. Dorsey is also a firm believer in showmanship. He never exhibited a champion himself, but he recalled winning showmanship at the Crawford County Fair in

The Ring 2017 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | 131


Feature the mid 50s. “He always says showmanship is the most important thing because that’s you, and no one can take that away from you,” said Janet. Amber’s fondest memory is exhibiting at the American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri. She placed second in her class with her steer, but she won her showmanship division. She said she was most excited to share the news with her grandfather. When it comes to showmanship, Janet is not only proud of her daughters, but she is also amazed at the drive and the competition that all BEST participants have. “All kids across Ohio have excelled. There are so many good showmen in the state of Ohio.” The Leonhardts and Millenbaughs have a deep appreciation for the people not only in Ohio, but all over the country. They urge other exhibitors ask questions because there are people willing to help them. The family admits even they are continually learning to this day. The family has been exhibiting at the

Ohio State Fair for decades. For the last 16 years, at least one of the three girls has won their age division as Outstanding Market Exhibitor. Janet laughed as she recalled the first time one of her daughters received a large, decorative check; Dorsey was genuinely concerned how they would ever cash it. “I think being in 4-H and FFA brings out the best in a person. It just makes better human beings,” said Janet. Lori will be a senior at Colonel Crawford and Pioneer Career and Tech Center where she is studying Cosmetology. Jess will graduate next May from Ohio State ATI where she is studying horticulture and floral design and marketing. Amber is a state tested nursing assistant (STNA) and she and Joe will be married in the fall. No matter their paths, the girls will stick together, surrounded by family and cattle. “It’s a family thing, and it all started with Dorsey and Shirley Leonhardt,” said Janet with a smile. 

Buckeye

Class: BEEF SHORTLOINS

138 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017


Reasons provided by:

The Ohio State University MEAT Judging Team

“I placed this class of beef shortloins 4-3-1-2.” I placed 4 over 3 due to clearly greater quality resulting in a higher merchandising value. 4 was obviously higher quality (USDA Prime vs Choice) as shown by a higher degree of marbling in a firmer loineye, as well as a greater amount of marbling in the sirloin face. I readily admit 3 was heavier muscled as shown by a much larger loineye, fuller back, and a greater area of exposed lean in the sirloin face, with an especially larger Gluteus medius and Psoas major face . Furthermore, 3 possessed less fat over the back and had less fat over the top sirloin face. I placed 3 over 1 due to clearly greater quality resulting in a higher merchandising value and being suitable for a Top Choice Boxed Beef Program. 3 was higher quality (Top Choice vs Low Choice) as shown by a higher degree of marbling in the loineye and a greater amount of marbling in the sirloin face. Moreover, 3 displayed a larger Gluteus medius and Psoas major in the sirloin face. I recognize 1 possessed a much larger loineye, a thicker heavier muscled

back, and a larger Longissimus dorsi in the sirloin face. Furthermore, 1 had less fat over the back, had less seam fat in the sirloin face and less kidney fat. I placed 1 over 2 due to clearly greater quality resulting in a higher merchandising value. 1 was higher quality (USDA Choice vs Select) as shown by a higher degree of marbling in the loineye and a greater amount of marbling in a more cherry red colored sirloin face. Moreover, 1 had a larger loineye, a thicker heavier muscled back, extending into a greater area of exposed lean in the sirloin face with a larger Psoas major. I grant 2 had less fat over the loin edge and had less kidney fat. I acknowledge 2 was a high yielding short loin that had the least kidney fat. However, I without hesitation, placed 2 last as it was the lowest quality short loin in the class. 2 was the lowest quality (USDA Select) as shown by the lowest degree of marbling in the loineye and least amount of marbling in the sirloin face. Therefore, 2 would yield the lowest merchandising value, thus placed last.

What is Meat Judging? The Ohio State University Meat Judging Team is an educational and competitive, extracurricular activity that competes on a nationwide basis. The meat judging program complements student education in agriculture through teaching how the final end product is evaluated, fabricated and marketed. Furthermore, meats team members are exposed first hand to numerous segments of the livestock and meats industry across the U.S. Team members gain skills in observation, logical thinking and communication.

Meet the Team

The 2017 Ohio State University Meat Judging team kicked off the year with meat judging on their minds. The buckeyes competed in three contests starting at the Southwestern Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest in Ft. Worth, Texas where they finished 8th overall. Randi Shaw finished 18th overall. The Buckeyes then traveled to Ames, Iowa to compete in the Iowa State University Invitational contest. The team finished 9th with Paige McAtee 4th in lamb judging. The final contest of the spring semester (Southeastern) was co-hosted by The Ohio State University and the University of Kentucky, Lexington. The Buckeyes were 4th overall with a few of the team members taking a few spots. Ethan Fink, a senior Animal Science major, took 5th place in total placing; beef judging; and lamb judging. Mr. Fink finished 11th overall. Hailey Shoemaker placed 4th in lamb judging and Paige McAtee finished 6th in lamb judging. The team has three more contests left in the year. Meat judging coordinator, Lyda G. Garcia said, “Spring is the time for students to understand the format of the competitions. With so many students competing, the first few contests can be overwhelming. Fall contests are more fun because everyone is on the same page then.” The 2017 Meat Judging team consists of: •

Bailie Corbin, a senior Animal Science major from Gallipolis, Ohio

Ethan Finck, a senior Animal Science major from Somerset, Ohio

Morgan Foster, a senior Animal Science major from Gallipolis, Ohio

Randi Shaw, a junior Biosciences major from Somerset, Ohio

Family Traditions For the Cupps and Loves, raising cattle is a passion that runs in the family. Story and photos by Katie Alexander, OCA Intern

W W

hen the Boucher sisters started showing their family’s Salers cattle, the two knew they had a passion they would want to share with their future families. Now, Kurt and Marcy Love and Travis and Katie Cupp, and their kids, Mason Love, 12, Morgan Love and Maddox Cupp, 10 (only 22 days apart) and Knox Cupp, six, are a family who share a love of the cattle industry. Kurt Love didn’t grow up involved in the livestock industry, but he helped on a dairy farm during high school and raised grain crops. Travis Cupp grew up outside of Lancaster where he and his father continue to farm 2,500 acres of corn and soybeans. Kurt and Travis were close friends and participated in truck pulls together. After Travis and Katie started dating, Katie knew she had to introduce Travis’s friend, Kurt, to her sister, Marcy. After the introduction and a few cattle shows later, Kurt decided sitting around wasn’t for him, so he started to learn how to

clip and found a passion for showing livestock. The rest of it is history and showing cattle became a family affair. Mason, Morgan and Maddox started showing Salers cattle as soon as they could. With the help of their parents, they too, found the love of the cattle industry, which turned into success in the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) BEST program.

Successes and Lessons Learned

“Showing in the BEST program kind of fell into place,” Travis said. “The kids really started to enjoy [showing], so we ran with it.” Some of the things the kids have taken away from their cattle showing experience isn’t what they learned in the show ring, but what they’ve had the opportunities to see and attend, from meetings learning about the beef industry and fitting demonstrations, to watching judges place classes.

Feature “The BEST program has allowed me to meet people from all over and travel a lot,” Mason said. He aspires to be a livestock judge and the shows allow him to see and hear how judges from across the country evaluate classes. Not only are OCA’s youth programs keeping kids in the livestock arena, but they also help build character and responsibility in life, Mason and Maddox emphasized. The cousins have grown to learn responsibility and how to lose graciously and win humbly. “We have a motto that we say all the time,” Mason stated, “if one wins, we all win.” The kids do the work on the cattle together, so to see one of them do well in the show ring means they all did well and each loss makes them work harder at home before the next show. The family also participates in the Best of the Buckeye program, Ohio’s premier bred, born and raised steer and heifer youth event. Mason finished as Champion Low % AOB heifer with his Salers influenced heifer and Maddox had Champion Hereford heifer in the program at the 2017 Ohio Beef Expo. Morgan also competed in the Best of the Buckeye program -- exhibiting a Simmental heifer. “[Morgan] ended up third in Best of the Buckeye, and you would have thought she had won the Super Bowl,” Marcy said.

Good, Better, Best

The cousins and their parents are always striving to be better and be more successful. They have a true passion for the industry and they couldn’t imagine life without it. While working cattle is something that gets done every day, the Cupps and the Loves have integrated ‘No Wash Wednesday,’ where they take a break from the barn and go fishing, go to the pool or just have a day away. which gives the kids and the calves a bit of a break. When the kids decided they wanted to get more competitive and show in the BEST program, the families decided they would put in the effort to do the best they could.Each night, the kids work on showmanship practice without show sticks, 152 | Ohio Cattlemen’s Association | The Ring 2017

“If ONE WINS...

...WE ALL WIN.”


Feature and their parents give them a “grade” on their performance. The cousins are always told to ‘know the judge, know your heifer, know the ring.’ If they always know where the judge is, know where the animal looks best standing and know where they’re going in the ring, their chances are better at doing well. “When you let your kids do most of the work, they tend to enjoy the win more,” said Marcy. However, it’s not just about winning for the Loves and Cupps.“There was a little boy who had a steer that didn’t make weight at the fair two years ago,” Marcy said. “Morgan saw what happened and asked if he wanted to show her heifer in the open show. That little boy told Morgan that showing the heifer was the best time he had ever had and they ended up winning overall female, too.” Marcy continued, “The BEST program and the livestock industry teaches kids responsibility and helps shows them kindness and compassion.” The thing that stands out about the livestock industry is what the kids learn and their roles on the farm. The kids know if they are outside and see a cow in heat, they should see which cow it is and report back to their parents. Every day the family is continually learning more about the industry and good production practices. They recently have taken more of an interest in nutrition and reproduction. “There is more business to [raising cattle] than just baling some hay and throwing it into the pen for the calves,” Kurt said.

Outside the Ring

The lessons learned in the livestock industry and through the youth livestock programs have followed the kids to the sports arena, too. “If I have any advice to give to parents, it would be to let your kids get involved in other things, too,” Marcy said.

Morgan and Mason take the dedication, perseverance, and work ethic they have developed while showing, to help themselves and their teammates on and off the basketball court, while Maddox carries the same competitive drive he has in the show ring to the wrestling mat. However, sports aren’t the only thing they know outside of showing cattle. Both Mason and Morgan have a passion for photography and took home winnings in the BEST photography contest at the banquet in the spring. Mason also enjoys baking for the county fair, and they all enjoy helping those in need -- whether it’s in the livestock industry or just in life. Like their fathers, the three oldest kids also enjoy tug pulling their antique tractors. Mason normally competes with his John Deere 50. Maddox pulls off color to Mason and Morgan with a Farmall, which was Maddox’s great-grandfather’s tractor. Besides 4-H, the kids are all active with the Fairfield County Cattlemen’s Association and promoting beef throughout the county. They do so at various events such as Hamburgers for the Hungry, The Taste of Fairfield County and serving beef fajitas to kids their age while teaching their peers about the beef industry and what products come from cattle. Travis and Katie and Kurt and Marcy have instilled valuable life lessons in their kids. The families want the best for their livestock, and they prove time and time again that taking care of the cattle will help them achieve success in and out of the show ring. “It doesn’t matter if you leave the barn with 50 banners, one banner or no banners,” Kurt said. “If you can leave the barn and have earned the respect from one of the elders in the cattle industry, then you’ve had a good day. That’s what I try and teach the kids. That will go further in life than any banner.” 
