4 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

Persistence Our farm has been under attack this summer and it’s not from government regulators or an animal rights activist group. Our attacker is a small, but tenacious, red bird. By now you are probably laughing over the idea of one little bird wreaking havoc, but the war has been real. The attacks were carried-out by a very persistent cardinal who saw his reflection and presumed another bird was on the inside of our home’s glass doors. So, obviously we closed the curtains, but the bird continued pecking away at his reflection. What started out as slightly amusing, quickly escalated. Our humor turned to animosity when beery season rolled around and the mess, he was already making on the porch, grew significantly worse. As weeks passed, it was suggested that the reflective side of DVDs when hung up in the targeted area would scare the bird away. Only problem was finding something to hang the DVDs on. Bent wire coat hangers fit nicely over the door and suspended the shiny DVDs. Unfortunately, the DVDs were not successful in stopping the cardinal’s pecking, but they did add an unnecessary extra measure of redneck ambiance to the entryway of our house and were quickly discarded. I think the bird actually played with them. And every time he was shooed away, he refocused his attacks on the windows and side mirrors of whatever car or truck was sitting in the driveway leaving his calling card in the process. With frustration and bird droppings mounting, some quick online research yielded a motion-activated bird alarm. The alarm flashed lights and made an irritating noise when something moved in front of it but resulted no reduction in attacks. In fact, the bird alarm only succeeded in making the bird mad, and occasionally he would add shredding the basil plant located nearby to his list of attacks. As the war moved into multiple months and multiple porch scrubbings, the red menace showed no signs of letting up and his persistence never wavered. This story of persistence leads me to the heart of this column. Cattle producers share this same persistent nature. It is our persistence as good stewards of the environment that drives us to find a better way to communicate that cattle production in the U.S. is a climate solution. This thinking led to NCBA’s recent announcement to address beef sustainability and solidify their commitment to environmental, economic and social sustainability for the industry. The announcement led with the bold goal of demonstrating climate neutrality of U.S. cattle production by 2040. Additional goals include creating and enhancing opportunities for producer profitability and economic sustainability by 2025. And enhancing trust in cattle producers as responsible stewards of their animals and resources by expanding educational opportunities to further improve animal well-being. There is lots more to this effort to “begin playing offense and quit being kicked around by biased, unscientific data in the media,” as one of the presenters so accurately pointed out. Consumers are pushing for sustainability in their food, but most struggle to define what sustainability means. More education is needed as 70% of consumers admit they are not familiar with how cattle are raised. NCBA market research shows when defining sustainability, animal welfare is the biggest concern for consumers as they think about raising cattle or beef for food. Yet their top considerations when they make decisions about proteins are still issues like taste, safety, value and nutrition. The research also shows great opportunities for the industry as 62% of consumers say they find cattle producers very credible. It’s this high level of trust that will help cattle producers successfully share our story of commitment to sustainable beef production and being part of a climate solution. And as always, cattle producers will be persistent in this effort.

As we turn our attention to fall, it is a great time to anticipate cooler weather and the harvest season. For the cow/calf sector, the harvest is in pounds of calf weaned. In our Northcentral region of the state, consistent rains through late summer have kept things green later than usual and several producers have commented that they expect higher than usual weaning weights from their spring-born calves. We are also fortunate to have several nationally respected seedstock producers in our state that will be holding production sales this fall. I encourage you to evaluate their offerings and support the local breeders who offer high genetic merit animals in Ohio. Although it wasn’t a “normal” version of the fair, I enjoyed visiting with many of you at the Ohio State Fair beef shows recently. It is always impressive to see families working together toward a common goal and the impressive young people that are developed through junior programs. Congratulations to all who participated and competed at a high level. Thanks to Kyle Walls and Elizabeth Harsh for making the trip to NCBA’s annual meeting and convention in Nashville. The Live Cattle Marketing Committee created a new working group to investigate confidentiality issues with packer reports and how this aligns with Livestock Mandatory Reporting law. Related to these issues, the USDA recently announced it will begin publishing a National Daily Direct Formula Base Cattle report, which will provide greater insight into prices used in cattle market formulas, grids, and contracts, and a National Weekly Cattle Net Price Distribution report, which will show the volume of cattle purchased at each different level of pricing within those formulas, grids, and contracts. I greatly appreciate the leadership of OCA Board member and OCA Live Cattle Marketing Committee Chairman Mark Goeke and the entire in OCA Live Cattle Marketing Committee for leading our organization through the price and market issues that affect our members in recent times. There is so much to consider in forming a position on cattle pricing policy and this group has done an outstanding job of flushing out many of the issues that pertain specifically to Ohio cattle producers. We are very excited to offer three more sessions of the Cattlemen’s Academy Calving Clinics this fall around the state. These clinics are free to OCA members and will include a catered meal and hands-on opportunities during the sessions. Please call or email the OCA office to register as seats are limited. Thanks to Elizabeth and her team for initiating monthly Facebook Live lunch webinars and other video updates. These are available for your review on OCA’s Membership Portal and are a great way to catch up on pertinent issues and the work OCA is doing on your behalf. I want to remind readers that OCA has transitioned to an annualized membership meaning that memberships will be good for one year from the date of renewal rather than a renewal season at the first of the year. When it’s time to renew, you will receive an email with instructions to renew from the website. If you have questions about this process or would prefer assistance, please call the OCA office and someone will be happy to assist you. As we transition into fall, please be safe this harvest season and we hope to see you down the road soon. Please always feel free to reach out to either me or an OCA staff member with questions, concerns, and suggestions for the betterment of our organization.

FORAGE FOCUS

Water is Everything By Chris Penrose, Agriculture and Natural Resources, OSU Extension, Morgan County Over the years as I have worked with producers developing a grazing system, you would expect fencing to be the major issue. As the paddocks are set up, water almost always becomes the major issue. If you are fortunate enough to have reliable ground water or public water, this issue is minimized. I recall the droughts back in 2012 and 1988 and feed for livestock was not the issue, it was water. As creeks, springs and ponds dried up, options were limited and expensive, many had to haul water. On our family farm, I rely exclusively on creeks and springs and have developed most springs on the farm for the cattle. The first springs that were developed back in the 1960’s that had an estimated lifespan of 20 years lasted much longer and have been rebuilt except one that is still going strong. Since the drought of 88, I have developed the remaining springs to try to minimize issues in dry weather and provide multiple water sources in each paddock. An important consideration if an option is will the livestock go to the water or will you take the water to the livestock? When possible, it is almost always the best option to take the water to the livestock because water is generally the most powerful force determining where livestock will spend their time. A three year study at the Forage System Research Center in Missouri showed that when cattle had to travel more than 800 feet to water, uneven grazing occurred: overgrazing close to the water and undergrazing on the opposite end of the paddocks. In addition, when cattle have to travel long distances to water, they tend to go in groups so an adequate supply of water needs to be available so all of the cattle can receive an adequate supply. 8 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

Water close to cattle does not need as much available water but needs the ability to re-fill the tank rapidly if it is small. Studies also demonstrate that water close to cattle will improve weight gains. How about water quality? If you have ponds or streams in paddocks and use them as a water source, we know that when it is hot, cattle like to stand in water, especially non-moving, shaded water, which will reduce quality. Pollution can come from erosion along the banks of the ponds and streams, and from manure and urine while standing in the water. For ponds we do know that installing a tank with the pond as the source improves water quality, or fencing out the pond with a small corner with a stone base and limiting standing in the pond will improve quality. A friend of mine installed a gravity fed, frost free tank below his pond as a clean, reliable source of water. There are different thoughts on what to do with streams in paddocks and I am not sure what the right answers is, but I do know that rotating to paddocks without streams limits exposure to paddocks with streams. Cattle like to stand in water not moving, so if you make part of a stream available for water, use a portion where the water is moving with a stone base. Finally, if given a choice, cattle that have access to clean water from a different source they will generally use that. I have one paddock where I had a spring devel-

oped with a stream running through it and the cattle use the stream less. Finally, I do know that during the summer, if your cattle are on fescue and you have a stream with standing water and shade, I bet I know where they will be during the day. Just some final thoughts. Ideally, we want clean, fresh water in every paddock, within 500-600 feet of the forage, and smaller tanks need to have a quick recharge. If possible, if water sources are in a fixed location, can they serve multiple paddocks? I have one location with two 500 tanks in a lot that is available to three paddocks. I have another location with two tanks from two different springs together right on the fence line that is available to two paddocks and the water lines are joined together so if one spring goes dry, the other can supply both tanks. What is interesting to note on our farm is that every old barn had a cistern to capture water. If you calculate the square feet of a building and the amount of precipitation we receive each year, there is potential to capture a significant amount of water for livestock. We have one producer in Morgan County that has a large holding tank by his barn and water is supplied by a spring and rain off the roof. It is then pumped to the top of a hill where the water then flows to tanks in each of the paddocks below. When it is dry, water is everything!

Also, the one-time nomination fee for the Ohio breeder will be re-instated for their BBS eligible cattle that will be shown in the BEST. All BBS points, including those from out-of-state juniors, will begin accumulating at the first BEST sanctioned show and continue through the Ohio Beef Expo. Eligibility requirements for out-ofstate BEST BBS participants include meeting BEST age qualifications. Their family must also be current

OCA members and they must make a one-time $60 per head BEST nomination. To be eligible to exhibit at the 2022 Ohio Beef Expo, out-of-state juniors must have exhibited in at least one previous BEST sanctioned show for the 2021-2022 show season. Out-of-state BEST BBS participants may only show BBS eligible cattle at the Ohio Beef Expo.

OCA NEWS

OCA SEEKING INDUSTRY LEADERS TO SERVE ON BOARD OF DIRECTORS Have you been searching for an opportunity to be more involved in Ohio’s cattle industry? The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) is seeking industry leaders who have a passion for serving and representing the business interests important to Ohio’s cattle industry. Five positions on the OCA board of directors will be opening in 2021. Districts 2, 5, 8, 11 and one at-large position will be up for election this fall. Please refer to the map to see which counties are included in each district. Board members currently serving in those positions are as follows: district 2, Kelvin Egner; district 5, Frank Phelps; district 8, Linde Sutherly; district 11, Lindsey Hall; director at-large, Tom Karr. Directors

from districts 2 and 5 have served the maximum number of terms and are ineligible to run again. Only those OCA members in the district up for election will receive a ballot to vote for their director. All OCA members will receive a ballot to vote either by email or mail for the one at-large director. Per the OCA bylaws, “Each OCA member shall have the right to nominate one candidate for director from the member’s district.” County associations may also nominate candidates for district director. Please make sure the individual nominated has agreed to have their name placed in nomination. A nominating committee appointed by the OCA president will determine the eligibility of all director nominations.

Each year, the board gathers for six meetings, assists with association events and activities and works with members in their respective counties to represent their interests. Nominations for the board of directors are due by Oct. 1, 2021. For additional information concerning district director nominations or a copy of the director position description, visit www.ohiocattle.org.

REPLACEMENT FEMALE SALE CONSIGNMENTS DUE OCT. 1 The ninth annual OCA Replacement Female Sale will take place the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, 2021. The sale will be held at the Muskingum Livestock Auction Co. in Zanesville, Ohio and will begin at 6:00 p.m The middle of the 2021 breeding season is an excellent time to evaluate your herd and consider marketing decisions for the fall. Young, high quality cattle backed by solid genetics are in demand with potential buyers. Yearling heifers bred artificially to proven calving ease sires are very marketable. A shorter breeding season that results in a tighter calving window has also proven to be popular with potential 12 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

buyers. As we think about that tight breeding season, consider those January to early May calving females as potential consignments and breeding pieces that will fit calving windows for many Ohio producers. It is also a great time to evaluate the body condition of potential sale animals and make nutritional adjustments to the animal’s diet in anticipation of a late November sale date. Body Condition Scores in the 5-6 range on a 9-point scale at sale time is a good goal to strive to achieve. Additional considerations when evaluating females and making breed decisions include udder conformation and temperament/docility.

Consignments may include cowcalf pairs, bred cows and bred heifers. Females must be under the age of five as of Jan. 1, 2022 and may be of registered or commercial background. Bred females must be bred to a bull with known EPD’s and calves at side of cows must be sired by a bull with known EPD’s. Pregnancy status must be verified by an accredited veterinarian through traditional palpation, ultrasound or by blood testing through a professional laboratory. Sale consignments are due to the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association by Oct. 1, 2021. More information about the sale is available at www.ohiocattle.org or by contacting Garth Ruff at ruff.72@osu. edu.

ON THE EDGE OF COMMON SENSE

Corn Country Landscape By Baxter Black, DVM

Dates to Remember: Farm Science Review

Sept. 21-23

18 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

Corn country landscape - painted late summer - high clouds, heavy with moisture waiting for afternoon to thicken and darken and start raising Cain. You can see for miles. Brown, green, yellow patchwork pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. Feedlots in the distance, their pens spread out like dark blankets on the side of a hill. On the horizon to the north and south I can count three spray planes circling over the corn like buzzards. They are so far away I cannot hear them. Closer I can see circle sprinkler lines leapfrogging over the tops of corn rows taller than a pickup and thick as pile carpeting. The stalks stand straight and tasseled. They remind me of a crowd waiting to hear the Pope. An orderly group. Corn is seldom unruly. The fields of sunflowers are less organized. They are Woodstockers, jostling and stretching to get a glimpse of the morning’s performer. Suddenly I pass a farmstead. Acres of lawn with a butch haircut from the side of the road to the first row of corn. Who mows all this, I ask. A windbreak. Deep green, paint-by-number rows of pine trees and juniper. Beautiful, yet somehow out of place. A fresh tilled field pushes within a few feet of the road. It smells strong, heavy on my lungs. On this humid morning it reminds me of chocolate cake. I drop into a creek bottom. Cows of all colors lay like mixed nuts spilled on a green carpet. Bleached round bales hunker along the fence row like melting clumps of sticky candy. I follow the pretty three-line power poles festooned with mushroom-like insulators. Proud they are in their orderliness, functional yet outdated. The DC3’s of corn country leading me back up. Two giant 8-wheel jointed tractors sit visiting with each other in a quarter section field laying fallow. Resting? I don’t know, maybe just waiting. More cornfield city blocks. Each row seems to have its seed company sign out front like a mailbox; Mr. Pioneer, Mr. Producers, Mr. Bayer, Mr. Corn States. The next town comes into view. A water tower and grain elevator. The implement dealer has his monsters on display along Main street. Like elephants in the circus standing side by side, one foot on the stool, one in the air, trunk raised. Lesser implements parked beyond like resting butterflies, wings folded. I turn left at the one stoplight. Coffee time.

NCBA NEWS

NUTRITION RESEARCH IMPROVES PUBLIC PERCEPTION OF BEEF As the Beef Checkoff celebrates its 35th anniversary, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, is shining a light on the successful promotion and research programs that drive the demand for beef. Consumers today are more open to the nutritional benefits of beef than at any other time since the Checkoff began more than three decades ago but getting here was not easy and required consistent longterm investment in nutrition research to turn the tide. The Beef Checkoff was implemented at a time when U.S. Dietary Guidelines encouraged Americans to limit beef in their diet and reduce their intake of fat and cholesterol. This coincided with Americans’ growing interest in healthy lifestyles and it quickly became clear nutrition and health concerns could be a potential barrier to consumers eating beef. In order to address the concerns and further understand beef ’s role in health, the Checkoff began funding nutrition research. Through the years, the Checkoff has made significant contributions to the scientific understanding about beef ’s role in health. And now, The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) recommend introducing solid foods, like beef, to infants and toddlers, in order to make every bite count with protein, iron, zinc and choline.1-2 “I’ve seen firsthand the evolution of nutrition behavior over the years,” said Becky Walth, South Dakota producer and member of the Nutrition & Health Checkoff Committee. “The Beef Checkoff has been ahead of the curve, conducting research to 20 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

demonstrate the importance of beef in a balanced diet.” Two landmark studies reinforce that beef not only fits heart healthy diets but may also help decrease risk of cardiovascular disease when included in heart healthy diets. The Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet (BOLD) study found that people can enjoy 4-5½ ounces of lean beef daily, as part of a heart healthy lifestyle to lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels.3 The Mediterranean-style eating pattern study found that eating a Mediterranean diet that included 7-18 ounces of lean red meat per week can improve cardiometabolic disease risk factor profiles.4 The Checkoff has done more than just defend beef ’s position in heart healthy diets using a strong foundation of science. In fact, nutrition research has been helping people discover the benefits of beef to health across the life span, starting with protein. Recent studies have focused on the power of protein and its impact on physical and emotional strength. While other research has shown the importance of high-quality protein for the aging population, as well as demonstrating beef ’s critical role in growth and development, especially as a high-quality source of iron for older infants, women and girls. Because of Checkoff-funded nutrition research, beef can now be Americans’ protein of choice in any gold standard heart healthy diet, and beef is consistently recommended by scientists, physicians and registered dietitians. In addition, 75% of consumers agree that beef is nutritious.5 New challenges are on the hori-

zon as the nutrition and public health community grapple with how to ensure everyone has access to sustainable healthy food. A key part of this will be maximizing nutrition with fewer calories making nutrient density an important cornerstone of how the world defines a healthy sustainable diet. NCBA and the Beef Checkoff are already conducting research in these areas to help keep beef as a healthy choice for the center of the plate. Checkoff-funded research has not only added to the scientific database but has also accelerated scientific discovery from others in a wide variety of areas related to the nutrients found in beef, and beef ’s role in overall health. In the past, nutrition may have been a barrier to consumers eating beef, however, with help from the Checkoff, nutrition has now become the reason people want to include beef in their diets.

THE RUFF REVIEW

Marketing as part of the plan By Garth Ruff, Beef Cattle Field Specialist, OSU Extension While summer is winding down there is no shortage of things to keep a beef producer busy this time of year. Depending on the calving season of choice, we are either approaching fall calving or wrapping up the breeding season for some spring calving herds. There is still hay to be made and corn silage harvest is not too far away. Now is the time to manage some pesky pasture weeds and perhaps sneak in that last minute summer vacation. I mention all the above in an effort to encourage producers to begin thinking about fall and making those management decisions that have positive impacts on the 2021 spring calf

24th Annual

crop. So, before we think about kicking back and watching the Buckeyes on the gridiron, consider practices that will add value to the calf crop about to be marketed. Feeder cattle prices continue to be strong, perhaps better than predicted during our cow-calf outlook program around the first of the year. While I am not an economist, my colleagues across the Land-Grant system contribute the strong prices in part to the slight contraction we have seen to the national cow herd. In July, USDA reported the largest midyear reduction in cow inventory, in large part due to the extreme drought in the western US and the northern plains. At the time of writing this there are nearly 100 wildfires burning in the West, with little relief in sight. Locally, high selling cull cows and several retirements from the cow-calf business, have helped shorten the supply of feeder cattle. When feeder cattle are in short supply, there is even greater opportunity to capitalize on premiums in the marketplace, but planning should be underway, as adding value to feeder cattle doesn’t just happen overnight.

October 23, 2021

40 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

An ideal plan is to have calves weaned for at least 45 days before marketing. “But, I don’t have a place to keep calves separate for 45 days.” I understand this is an obstacle for many cattlemen in the state, however it is one that can be overcome if we look at return on investment. A simple corral, a good fence to split a pasture, and alley with headgate are more than enough to get the job done. With workable handling facilities, vaccination and castration are less limiting factors to increasing calf value as well. As part of Beef Quality Assurance reach out to your veterinarian to develop a vaccination plan that fits your target market. Sale data is pretty clear that preconditioned cattle, that have been weaned for 45+ days, outsell cattle that are weaned off the cow the day they are sold. It does take time, a little bit of feed, and some workable handling facilities, but the revenue generated from the improved management will cover that cost over time. Remember to market the value that you have added to your cattle. If selling at auction, the market needs to have recorded exactly what you have done in order to announce it to the potential buyers in the seats. It doesn’t make sense to go through the extra work and put he cattle through the chute if you aren’t able to take a few moments to market what you have done. A beef cow has only limited opportunities to generate revenue in her lifetime, once a year when she as a calf, and once when she is culled. We might as well make the most out each of those opportunities.

OUTSTANDING COUNTY AWARD

Existing to grow youth and build a community By Hanna Fosbrink, Managing Editor “Part of our existence is simply for helping the youth,” said Fairfield County Cattlemen’s Association’s (FCCA) president, Ray Breagel. He couldn’t talk enough about how almost every event or activity they are apart of is for growing the next generation. The other part of their existence, it seems, is for the community. From scholarships to county-wide competitions, the association works together to keep existing programs flourishing all while thinking about the future. During their county fair, you can find the group in their concession trailer serving and promoting beef to fairgoers. All revenue from that week of hard work is directly allocated to their youth scholarship fund. Their scholarship program is something the group is particularly proud of as they have awarded over $30,000 in scholarships over the past 22 years. One of their recipients, Desiree Logsdon, even went on to become the National Shorthorn Queen. Aside from monetary support for the youth, FCCA helps to organize

42 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

and sponsor their county’s pee wee showmanship class at their fair to encourage youth to get involved in the industry at a young age. This class sees around 20-30 participants each year and growing. For 25 plus years, the group has hosted the county fair’s Rate of Gain and Carcass Contest and supports the youth at their Junior Fair Livestock Auction. Among the Fairfield County community, FCCA is known for their beef education and promotion programs such as hosting activities with the Lancaster High School Culinary Arts program. Their most popular event with the community, however, would be their annual Chili Cook off. “A lot of the people that have won it and participated in it weren’t even producers,” said Renae Logsdon, FCCA board director and president elect. Logsdon goes on to talk about how fun it is for FCCA to watch the community rally together for friendly competition and to share their love of beef chili recipes.

This beef promotion event is an example of part of the group’s mission to increase demand for beef and beef products. The other part of that mission is to promote the economic, political and social needs of the county’s cattle producers. But with all their programs and events, FCCA is always looking to go above and beyond that mission. In fact, that is why they were chosen as the recipients of the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) 2021 Outstanding County Award. “The Fairfield County Cattlemen’s Association has been a great partner to OCA over the years,” said OCA president, Aaron Arnett. “Although the Outstanding County Award is fairly new within our association, we are proud to have FCCA set such an exemplary role for our other county associations.” While this group of cattlemen and women are busy caring for cattle and raising their own families, they are still taking time to make their existence unforgettable by growing the next generation and bringing a love of beef to their community.

DRIVING THE DEMAND FOR BEEF

Investing in Beef Promotion, Nutrition, Education & Research BEEF CHECKOFF COLLABORATES WITH CHEF’S ROLL IN OHIO

Chef ’s Roll, a worldwide chef network, travelled to Ohio to shoot video footage for a fun collaboration with an Ohio beef farm and famous Cleveland chef, Rocco Whalen. The video will take two separate pointof-views as Chef Rocco first visited Buckeye Creek Angus in Ashland Ohio to see how beef is raised. Zane Gross, owner of Buckeye Creek Angus, showed Chef Rocco around the farm, talked about how he cares for his herd and let the chef participate in his management practices. The crew then travelled to Cleveland to get a behind-the-scenes look at how Chef Rocco prepares beef dishes at his restaurant, Fahrenheit. Gross was able to learn some of the tricks of the trade and eventually taste some of Chef Rocco’s creations. The final video will be released soon through the Chef ’s Roll Instagram account with over 850,000 followers and through Beef. It’s What’s for dinner.’s social media platforms, YouTube and website. View other Chef ’s Roll collaborations at beefitswhatsfordinner. com/raising-beef.

OHIO BEEF COUNCIL CREATES RECIPE VIDEOS TO ENCOURAGE FOLLOWERS TO COOK WITH BEEF The Ohio Beef Council (OBC) has launched five beef recipes in the

form of Instagram Reels to encourage consumers to make recipes with beef. Instagram Reels is a brand-new Instagram feature for users to create 15-second video clips set to music and share to their Stories, Explore Feed, and the new Reels tab on a user’s profile. Users can use the Reels Explore Feed to find popular videos that show-up based on viewing history. Recipes that OBC has launched so far this summer are beef salad shakers, zesty barbecue cheeseburgers, foil packet beef and vegetables, beef and couscous stuffed peppers and beefed up mac & cheese. These five videos have a combined viewership of over 10, 275. Follow “ohiobeef ” on Instagram to view new releases coming soon.

BEEF CHECKOFF FUNDS BEEF SUSTAINABILITY PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

Throughout August and September, the Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. brand, managed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA), a contractor to the Beef Checkoff, is running a largescale public awareness campaign in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal to share beef ’s sustainability story in front of key audiences. Beef Checkoff staff developed a combination of digital, advertorial and print components with each of these three outlets, as well as targeted work with their climate and business subsections. This campaign will reach a minimum of 12 million consumers. This is the continuation of a beef campaign launched last spring that highlights real beef farmers. The campaign invited consumers to learn more about how cattle farmers around the country are employing sustainable

practices to care for the land and produce high-quality beef.    Recent scientific research funded by the Beef Checkoff shows that due to decades of continuous improvement efforts on farms around the country, the U.S. is the leader in sustainable beef production. In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, greenhouse gas from beef cattle only represents 2% of emissions in the U.S. Additionally, 90% of what cattle eat is forage and plant leftovers that people can’t eat. With this strong foundation of scientific and consumer market research, the Beef Checkoff took the opportunity to develop a fully integrated campaign that will target consumer, influencer, media and supply chain audiences. Consumers will also be introduced to the Environmental Stewardship Award Program and the Beef Quality Assurance Program as further evidence of steps taken by the industry to adhere to the highest standards.

BEEF NUTRITION HIGHLIGHTED AT FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES SUMMER CONFERENCE

This month, OBC’s Nutrition Coordinator, Anna Gest, presented at the 2021 Ohio Association Teachers Family and Consumer Sciences Summer Conference about “Beef to School: How to Include Beef in the Classroom with Ohio Beef Council”. The presentation was attended by over 30 teachers and professionals and covered the basics of beef, its role in a healthy diet and the ways the Ohio Beef Council can help educators include beef in Ohio classrooms. After the presentation, Gest distributed recipes and promotional items to conference attendees.

The Ohio Beef Council and the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board are responsible for developing programs that increase the demand for beef.

INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

BRD management: what works, doc? By Jeff Sarchet, DVM, Beef Technical Services, Zoetis One of the questions that I hear most frequently is: “What works best for BRD, doctor?” And while there have been many changes in the industry over my 30-year career, my response to this question remains the same: “What works best today is what has always worked.” To help improve BRD treatment success, I recommend three important tips – maximize animal husbandry, minimize stress and use the best available products.

1. Maximize animal husbandry

- Provide the best possible care and housing. When working with producers, my first focus is not to change their product. I first concentrate on helping them identify things that could be contributing to BRD challenges and/ or treatment failure. This means ensuring cattle receive excellent nutrition to complement a successful immune system and decreasing disease challenge by minimizing effects of the environment and management. During the cold, wintry months, shelter cattle from the elements and provide a dry place to bed. During the summer, keep them cool with ample shade. - Offer clean, fresh water. Sometimes we get caught up in the day-today, and we don’t think about water troughs. Are they filled with a murky sludge, or is the water fresh and clean to encourage adequate intake? Keep in mind that dehydration can compromise the immune system, allowing harmful BRD pathogens to enter the lungs. For perspective, if you were thirsty, would you take a sip from your herd’s water trough?

2. Minimize stress

- Shorten transportation time. Consider the stress of hauling cattle to and from different segments of our industry. You know how stressful it can be just loading and hauling cattle down the road while in the driver’s seat of your pickup. Now, imagine the stress of a 12to 15-hour ride, shoulder to shoulder, in a dark, wet cattle truck with up to 100 calves. Here are few considerations to help minimize the impact of stress on your cattle: Is it an option to shorten the transportation time? Can you improve the cleanliness and comfort in the trailer and make sure the diesel exhausts are above the trailer? Also, the swine industry uses bedding in their trailers when they haul animals, so why can’t we? - Minimize commingling. You can do this by grouping cattle of similar sex and weight sizes and spreading them out on your operation as much as possible. This will help decrease the transmission of disease but also even out competition. Remember that cattle are very social because of their herd behavior, and when we change the makeup of the herd, it can increase stress and lead to increased risk of disease. - Use low stress handling. By lessening the stress of handling cattle and minimizing stress from introducing cattle to new environments, we can further decrease the risk of BRD.

3. Use the best available products

- Consider the whole picture. If you’re doing a good job minimizing stress and increasing the well-being of your cattle, using the best available products will prove even more effective for your cattle. Their immune systems will be stronger, and their risk of disease will decrease. When choosing a product, it is more important to evaluate efficacy

than just compare costs. Often, more expensive products bring savings above the initial cost in areas not being measured. For example, a more effective antibiotic can reduce the time spent re-treating cattle, thus reducing your labor costs and medicine costs. Treating cattle costs money but also takes time — and finding more time in a day is not easy. Better treatment response also leads to fewer costly chronic or dead cattle. Start by estimating what BRD actually costs you with this cost calculator. - Measure the value. You can’t manage what you don’t measure, so keeping records is critical to your success. However, data is valuable only if you are analyzing and making decisions from it. Information can be even more useful when used with professional help, whether this is a nutritionist, local veterinarian consultant or company technical services representative. For instance, a feedlot manager I was working with thought the antibiotic he was using was not working as well because he was treating more cattle every day. By evaluating records, I pointed out that the efficacy of the product wasn’t the problem. In fact, the treatment response rate had not changed. What had changed was the number of new cattle they were receiving, which is why they were treating more cattle every day. Through better identification of the problem, you can find a better solution. The question of “What’s working for BRD, Doc?” is a great question. But the answer will never be as simple as use this or that product. Better BRD management and treatment outcomes can always be achieved when you do three things well – maximize animal husbandry, minimize stress and use the most effective products available.

BEEF BRIEFS BOYLES EARNS NATIONAL BQA EDUCATOR AWARD

Each year the National Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) Award recognizes outstanding beef and dairy producers, marketers, and educators that best demonstrate animal care and handling principles as part of the day-to-day activities on their respective operations. Dr. Steve Boyles, Ohio State University (OSU) beef cattle extension specialist, is the 2021 BQA Educator Award recipient. Boyles is originally from Southeast Ohio, where his family ran a research facility for OSU. Growing up on the farm cultivated his love for beef cattle. Boyles pursued that interest, eventually becoming a leading expert in BQA. He uses his knowledge and expertise to teach agriculture students, cattle producers and consumers alike on the importance of BQA. Award winners are selected by a committee comprised of BQA certified representatives from universities, state beef councils, sponsors and affiliated groups, who assess nominations based on their demonstrated commitment to BQA practices, their service as leaders in the beef industry and their dedication to promoting the BQA message to grow consumer confidence. The National BQA Awards are funded in part by the Beef Checkoff program and sponsored by Cargill.

2021 FARM SCIENCE REVIEW TO BE LIVE AND IN PERSON

The Ohio State University’s Farm Science Review, which was held online last year because of the pandemic, will 58 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

return this year to be live and in person for the 59th annual event. The premier agricultural education and industry exposition is set for Sept. 21–23 at Ohio State’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center, 135 State Route 38, near London. “While research, teaching, and serving communities throughout Ohio never stopped during the pandemic, we are grateful to once again be in person, working together, to advance our industry,” said Cathann A. Kress, Ohio State’s vice president for agricultural administration and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES). CFAES is the host of Farm Science Review, which brings in more than 100,000 people annually. Featured at the event will be more than 100 educational sessions, including “Ask the Expert” talks; 600 exhibits; the most comprehensive field crop demonstrations in the United States; a career exploration fair; and immersive virtual reality videos of agricultural activities. Hours for Farm Science Review are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 21–22 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 23. Tickets are $7 online, at county offices of OSU Extension, and at participating agribusinesses, and $10 at the gate. Children ages 5 and under are admitted free.

STATE OFFICIALS WARN LIVESTOCK OWNERS ABOUT EMERGING ASIAN LONGHORNED TICK

The Asian Longhorned Tick (ALHT), Haemaphysalis longicornis, has recently been discovered in cattle herds in two Ohio counties. On July 30, 2021, the State Veterinarians Office was notified that the tick was detected in beef herds in Jackson and Monroe counties. Heavy infestations have led to some cattle deaths. This is significant as this marks the first known cattle (live-

stock) infestation in Ohio. In July 2020, ODA was informed that this tick was identified on a dog from Gallia County. In 2017, this non-native and invasive tick species was found for the first time in the United States (New Jersey). Since then, it has moved across several mid-Atlantic states into West Virginia and now Ohio. This tick poses a significant disease threat and economic impact to Ohio’s livestock industry as it transmits over a dozen diseases that have human and animal health impacts. There is great concern amongst animal health officials about the potential impacts on livestock and wildlife. This tick can feed in large populations (known as a tick mass) on warm-blooded host animals which can lead to reduced growth, animal production, and in severe cases sufficient blood loss can result in death. Thus far, 17 different mammal species and one avian species have been infested with Asian longhorned ticks. Mammals include sheep, goats, dogs, cats, horses, elk, cattle, deer, opossums, raccoons, foxes and humans. The ALHT is a three-host tick, indicating it will feed on a different host for each life stage. Additionally, this tick is can reproduce without mating with a male. A single female can lay between 2,000 and 4,000 eggs, leading to heavy populations in some areas. This wide host range and unique tick biology leads to endemic tick populations in the environment that are difficult to control. Producers are encouraged to treat their livestock regularly for ticks and other external parasites. Additionally, environmental control measures are recommended. For livestock owners these include keeping grass and weeds trimmed and clearing overgrown brush in pastures and yards. Consult with your local veterinarian regarding preventive strategies to control external parasites.

BEEF BRIEFS CATTLEFAX FORECASTS RECORD BEEF DEMAND; PROSPECTS FOR TIGHTER SUPPLIES

The beef cattle industry is bouncing back from the pandemic, and continued progress is expected in 2022. Beef prices are near record high, and consumer and wholesale beef demand are both at 30-year highs as the U.S. and global economy recover. While drought remains a significant concern with weather threatening pasture conditions in the Northern Plains and West, strong demand, combined with higher cattle prices, signal an optimistic future for the beef industry, according to CattleFax. According to CattleFax CEO Randy Blach, the cattle market is still dealing with a burdensome supply of market-ready fed cattle. The influence of that supply will diminish as three years of herd liquidation will reduce feedyard placements. As this occurs, the value of calves, feeder cattle and fed cattle will increase several hundred dollars per head over the next few years. Kevin Good, vice president of industry relations and analysis at CattleFax, reported that the most recent cattle cycle saw cattle inventories peak at 94.8 million head and that those numbers are still in the system due to the COVID-19 induced slowdown in harvest over the past year. “As drought, market volatility and processing capacity challenges unnerved producers over the past 24 months, the industry is liquidating the beef cowherd which is expected to decline 400,000 head by Jan. 1 reaching 30.7 million head,” Good said. The feeder cattle and calf supply will decline roughly 1 million head from its peak during this contraction phase. Fed cattle slaughter will remain larger through 2021 as carryover from pandemic disruptions works through a processing segment hindered by labor issues, he added. “While fed cattle slaughter nearly 60 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2021

equals 2019 highs at 26.5 million head this year, we expect a 500,000-head decline in 2022,” Good said. “This, combined with plans for new packing plants and expansions possibly adding near 25,000 head per week of slaughter capacity over the next few years, should restore leverage back to the producer.” Good forecasted the average 2022 fed steer price at $135/cwt., up $14/ cwt. from 2021, with a range of $120 to $150/cwt. throughout the year. All cattle classes are expected to trade higher, and prices are expected to improve over the next three years. The 800-lb. steer price is expected to average $165/cwt. with a range of $150 to $180/cwt., and the 550-lb. steer price is expected to average $200/cwt., with a range of $170 to $230/cwt. Finally, Good forecasted utility cows at an average of $70/cwt. with a range of $60 to $80/cwt., and bred cows at an average of $1,750/cwt. with a range of $1,600 to $1,900 for load lots of quality, running-age cows. According to Good, the boxed beef cutout peaked at $336/cwt. in June, while retail beef prices pushed to annual high at $7.11/lb. “Customer traffic remained strong at restaurants and retail – even as those segments pushed on the higher costs, proving consumers are willing to pay more for beef,” he said. Wholesale demand will be softer in 2022, as a bigger decline in beef supplies will offset a smaller increase in beef prices with the cutout expected to increase $5 to $265/cwt. Retailers and restaurants continue to adjust prices higher to cover costs. Good added the retail beef prices are expected to average $6.80/lb. in 2021 and increase to $6.85/ lb. in 2022. Global protein demand has increased and U.S. beef exports have posted new record highs for two consecutive months, even with high wholesale prices. The increases were led by large, year-over-year gains into China, and Japan and South Korea remaining strong trade partners for protein. “The tightening of global protein supplies will support stronger

U.S. red meat exports in 2022. U.S. beef exports are expected to grow 15 percent in 2021 and another 5 percent in 2022,” Good said.

A Multi-Species Animal Learning Center will be coming to the Columbus campus of Ohio State at the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory, which is part of the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES). This new facility will allow students the opportunity to take classes in handling animals, among other subjects, and school children and the general public can see the dayto-day workings of modern livestock production. The first floor of the new building will include classrooms and animal barns and the second floor will be open to the public. Visitors will have access to a viewing area and interactive educational displays. The new facility will also replace outdated buildings to allow students to learn the best techniques and practices for modern-day livestock production. It will also be open for 4-H competitions and Extension programs. Along with the new facility is a plan to modernize Waterman’s dairy barn with an added robotic milking system to allow cows to freely come and go to be milked. The system will also collect and range of data, a key part of modern dairy operations. Construction for the Learning Center is expected to begin in two years.
