Having just wrapped up a successful state fair for many beef industry youth, this quote seems especially appropriate. Their significant accomplishments are the perfect example of this philosophy at work. Repeated practice and preparation resulted in the excellence that was on display in the beef barn throughout the fair. Congratulations to the many youth featured in this issue’s state fair recap.

Habit of Excellence There is a sign that hangs in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center that houses the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. It reads “EXCELLENCE is not a singular act but a HABIT. You are what you repeatedly do.”

It was the Young Cattlemen’s Conference participants who toured the football complex during the association’s leadership program. These future beef industry leaders already demonstrate a habit of excellence in their everyday lives and their futures are even brighter. OCA looks forward to their continued involvement in the association and the beef industry. The month of August has been filled with the excellence of youth, yet overall, 2019 could be called anything but excellent from a farming perspective. In mid-August USDA released figures on the unplanted crop acreage – the result of the spring’s record rainfall. It pegged Ohio’s acres at nearly 1.5 million, ranking the state third behind only South Dakota and Illinois. Spring rolled into summer with poor quality first-cutting hay, reduced cuttings and concerns over the potential for livestock feed shortages as we move into winter. And as this issue goes to press, many parts of the state seemed to have received their entire allotment of rain for the year in April and May and are now dry with little to no grass. The dry conditions will further impact yields on crops that in many places were only marginal at best. Compounding the challenges facing the beef industry is the recent fire at the Tyson cattle harvest facility in Kansas. This plant was responsible for six percent of the total U.S. fed cattle packing capacity and its closure is having a negative economic impact on the industry. The packing industry was already largely at capacity before the fire and will now have to absorb these additional cattle. NCBA immediately moved to assist the industry and minimize the impact by requesting exemptions for hours of service, addressing the need for meat inspectors as plants expand their harvest and contacting the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Packers and Stockyards Division to request they keep an eye on the market to make sure it keeps working. Experts predict the plant will be down for months and there’s significant concern that the impact of this event could linger in the markets for some time to come — affecting all classes of cattle, including feeder calves. These weather and market challenges affect cattlemen in Ohio and across the country. They require that going forward we make management decisions with excellence in mind. Recognizing the need for a source that would offer recommendations and solutions for agriculture’s most stressful issues, The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences put together a website with resources for Ohio farmers. This timely and responsive website offers the best science-based recommendations for issues such as weather impacts, tariffs, and low commodity prices. #LeanOnYourLandGrant in a Crisis. The habit of excellence is what cattlemen and farmers practice everyday and they’ll rise above these current challenges as we always do. But know there are resources to assist you every step of the way. And on a lighter note, as I researched the origins of this quote, it is attributed to both Aristotle and Shaquille O’Neal. Ancient Greek philosopher or basketball star, either way it’s a great one to live by. v

OCA News & Views By Sasha Rittenhouse, OCA President
Here’s to a Good Fall! Last week the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Board of Directors had the opportunity to take a tour of the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus. I have friends who have stayed at the Ronald McDonald house both when their son was born about 18 years ago, and again a few summers ago when he had brain surgery. I knew it was nice, but I was not prepared for just how great that facility is. It’s absolutely amazing! I was blown away with how many details are thought about and handled for all of the families who use the Ronald McDonald house. Families are provided three home cooked meals each day and there is a theater room, music room, library and exercise room. They offer a laundry facility, refrigerators, secrete Santa and even clothes if families arrive in disarray. 100 percent of what they offer is either donated or purchased with donated funds. I am sure by now you have heard about the Dean’s Charity Steer Show, which took place at this year’s Ohio State Fair. The efforts of this event raised nearly $150,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Congratulations to everyone who made that happen! The event filled the stands in the Voinovich building at the Ohio State Fair – you may have thought that they were showing the champion drive of the steer show by the looks of things. It brought many new faces to the cattle barn and it put the beef industry front and center and it was all for a great cause. Much like my house, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association rarely takes a break. The staff and interns run a well-oiled machine and there are lots of things gearing up to hit center stage through the fall. Hopefully you can all stop and visit us at the Farm Science Review September 17-19. You can renew your 2020 OCA membership and purchase OCA/Ohio Beef merchandise and apparel. One thing that is gearing up, and I’m pretty excited about, is our new OCA Cattlemen’s Academy. The Cattlemen’s Academy is designed to be an annual producer education series, focusing on a different aspect of the cattle industry each year and benefiting Ohio Cattlemen’s Association members. 2019 will bring a hands-on Calving Clinic series to help us all prepare for calving season. There will be a handful of these clinics around the state, covering a variety of topics. Producers will learn how to determine calf presentations and more about calving assistance techniques and facilities design. They will also be instructed on nutritional management of the prepartum cow and sire selection for calving ease. Of course, the ball is already rolling on another BEST and Best of the Buckeye show season. This program continues to be an excellent aid in helping us raise an excellent set of youth across our state. The shows are simply a reward for all of the hard work those kids do day in and day out with their calves. This year the BEST program will add another element to this program and will offer a youth Stockmanship Competition that will include individual contests. We are still working on the details, but we are very excited to add another component to the BEST shows that will showcase our talented youth across the state. I have no doubt these kids will shine! As fall approaches and another harvest season will (hopefully) soon be upon us, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association will continue to monitor all of the state and federal issues affecting our industry. Water quality challenges continue to be a hot topic around the state and OCA works to continually stay involved and be part of the discussion on how sound science should play a large role in the solution. Happy fall everyone and here’s to hoping for a good fall calving season, a good harvest with good commodity pricing, and a great market for our product. v

A review of actions by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Legislative & Regulatory
• OCA contacted key Ohio congressional offices requesting their co-sponsorship of a bill to increase control measures for black vultures. Black vultures, whose numbers and territories continue to expand, are causing tremendous economic damage on cattle farms throughout Ohio. • OCA President Sasha Rittenhouse and her daughters testified during a joint hearing of the Ohio House and Senate Agriculture Committees during the Ohio State Fair. OCA also co-hosted a reception for the committee members and central Ohio VIPs to promote Ohio Ag and the fair. • OCA hosted several public office holders and candidates at the beef barn during the 2019 Ohio State Fair. • OCA and NCBA supported and attended fundraisers for various members of the Ohio congressional delegation. • With the recent passage of the state budget, OCA has been involved in several meetings to provide input into how the agriculture portion of the H2Ohio fund should be used to make the most positive impact on nutrient management practices on Ohio farms.
• Sponsored beef awards for the 4-H Livestock Judging Contest held during the Ohio State Fair. • Co-sponsored a dinner for the state fair market animal exhibitors and their families. • Distributed BOTB press releases and ordered awards for all Ohio State Fair exhibitors and breeders. • Held the BOTB breeder reception in conjunction with the Cattlemen’s Gala on August 24 featuring over $10,000 in prizes. Sponsored by Sullivan Supply and Stock Show University.

OCA News Replacement Female Sale Planned On Friday evening, November 29, OCA will host their seventh annual Replacement Female Sale. The sale will be held at the Muskingum Livestock facility in Zanesville and will begin at 6:00 p.m. The 2019 Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Replacement Female Sale will provide an opportunity for both buyers and sellers to meet the need for quality replacements in the state. Consignments may include cow-calf pairs, bred cows and bred heifers. Females must be under the age of five as of January 1, 2020 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. Analysis must be performed within 60 days of sale. Consignments will also be fulfilling specific health requirements. At the 2018 sale, buyers evaluated 107 lots of bred heifers, bred cows, and cow-calf pairs at the auction. The sale included 80 lots of bred heifers that averaged $1,437, 25 lots of bred cows that averaged $1,377, and two cow-calf pairs that averaged $1,450. The 107 total lots grossed $152,275 for an overall average of $1,423. The females sold to buyers from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Now is the 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. A body condition score in the 5-6 range on a 9-point scale at sale time is a good goal to strive to achieve. Consignments for the sale are due to the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association by October 1, 2019. Sale information can be obtained by contacting the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association at (614) 873-6736 or www.ohiocattle.org.

King Wheeler Named 2019 National Junior Angus Advisor (NJAA) of the Year
The Ohio Junior Angus Association (OJAA) advisor Jamie King Wheeler was named the 2019 National Junior Angus Advisor of the Year during the National Junior Angus Show July 14-20 in Louisville, Kentucky. “Jamie always went above and beyond to make sure every junior member felt special, involved and important,” said Joanie Grimes, owner of Maplecrest Farms and nominator of the award. “Jamie kept every junior involved to their fullest extent and helped bestow confidence in every member.” As an OJAA advisor, King Wheeler has played an instrumental role in the success of the growing OJAA membership, the planning of two Eastern Regionals and the execution of one National Junior Angus Show. The NJAA Advisor of the Year Award was introduced in 1980 to recognize tremendous contributions of junior Angus association advisors.

Beef Briefs Cattle from BQA Certified Producers Shows Increased Premium
According to a recent study by the Beef Checkoff-funded BQA program and conducted by Colorado State University (CSU), results show a significant premium for calves and feeder cattle sold through video auction markets. Study results clearly show that participation in BQA and BQA certification can provide real value to beef producers. It means that the initiatives within the industry are rewarding cattlemen and women who take action to improve their operations and our industry. The result was a premium of $16.80/head for cattle that had BQA listed in the lot description. For more information on the study or to complete online BQA training, go to www.bqa.org/certification.
Governor DeWine Signs SB 57
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine
recently signed Senate Bill 57 into law, decriminalizing hemp and paving the way for the development of a new hemp industry in Ohio. The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will administer the newly created hemp program. Hemp is a cannabis plant that does not produce intoxicating effects, grown for its many industrial uses. Hemp contains a fiber, a grain and oil that can be extracted for CBD, which is now being used in food and dietary supplements. The hemp program sets up a licensing structure for farmers who are interested in growing the crop and those interested in processing it. It also allows for universities to grow and cultivate the crop for research purposes. ODA will also be testing CBD and hemp products for safety and accurate labeling to protect Ohio consumers. To learn more, visit ODA’s website at agri.ohio.gov.

Harvesting Options for Summer Annuals This month I drove across I-70 interstate to Kansas City, Missouri. Along the way I observed at least a dozen semi-trailers headed east with loads of high-quality hay. Some of this hay may have been delivered to Ohio where very little good hay has made this year. I also saw several fields planted with summer annuals where corn should have been. Beef producers in Ohio who have planted summer annuals such as sudangrass or sudangrass X sorghum hybrids and pearl millet as a substitute for high-quality cool season grass hay should prepare for the immediate harvest beginning this month. Most smaller beef operations are not set up for feeding silage so there are two options available – green chopping and hay/baleage. Green chopping – Green chopping may be an option for producers especially if pastures are getting short of forage. Sorghum-sudangrasses are well suited to a green chop program. Field losses are less from green chopping than from grazing or haying. However, the fast growth rate of sorghum-sudangrass results in variable amounts and quality of feed throughout the growing season. When grass is young and growing rapidly it may contain 20 percent crude protein
and produce a highly succulent feed. As the crop grows taller and nears maturity, the protein content may drop to seven percent or less, and fibrous, low quality green chop is produced. Dry Hay and Baleage – Dry hay harvests are difficult with summer annuals. Ideally cut at a 30 to 36 inch height. Leave 6 to 8 inches stubble height for best regrowth and aeration of the cut forage swaths. A second harvest will also be increased if forages are harvest at this stage. (Table 1) Condition using more roller pressure than for conventional hays. If your mower has intermeshing rollers it is advised to adjust these rollers as tightly as recommended by the manufacturer. Create as wide and fluffy a windrow as possible. Do not windrow until the top of the windrows are dry enough for baling. It can take an entire week of sunny weather to cure the forage for dry hay harvest. Tedding this forage will be difficult as most tedders are not designed to handle such a heavy crop. Baleage – To hasten baling and preserve field losses associated with dry hay, the best option for harvest and storage of summer annuals is to wrap bales either individually or inline. Wrap bales as quickly as possible after baling to reduce internal heating and associated quality decline.

** Stubble cut below these height ranges may result in poor or no regrowth. 20 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2019
Cautions and Considerations of Harvesting Summer Annuals Green Chop – Nitrates can become a problem in a green chop program under certain growing conditions such as drought and heavy nitrogen applications. Do not feed green chop that has heated in the wagon, feed bunk or stack, or that has been held overnight. Nitrates are converted to nitrites as plants respire; nitrites are about 10 times more toxic than nitrates. Feed only what can be consumed in a day. Dry Hay and Baleage – Prussic acid poisoning is a much less common occurrence when the affected summer annual is cut and baled as hay, since hydrogen cyanide (prussic acid) dissipates within a few days. However, toxic nitrate levels in hay will not go away, no matter how much time it is given. Thus, an analysis of any forage suspected of high nitrate levels is crucial in understanding how to deal with the affected forage. Nitrate levels would ideally be measured prior to harvest. If nitrate levels are found to be high, increase the cutter bar height to 2 to 4 inches above the target specified in the table so that the nitrates that are highly concentrated in the lower stalk are avoided. If baleage is been made in late August/early September, an application of approximately 50 units of nitrogen fertilizer should be made to hasten regrowth to increase yield for the subsequent second harvest. To reduce hay waste at the hay ring from cows pulling out long strands of feed, utilize a net wrap baler with cutting knives to facilitate smaller forage particle size. These balers with knives improve bale density and hay fermentation. Bales will tend to weigh several hundred pounds heavier even when only half the knives are engaged. These denser bales will use less net wrap, plastic to wrap the bales which can result in monetary savings and time savings. v

Young Cattlemen’s Conference Shaping the Future of the Industry
The 2019 Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC) hosted 19 cattlemen and women for a three-day leadership development program in central Ohio, Aug. 8-10. The conference was made possible through the support of program sponsors, Farm Credit MidAmerica, Ohio Beef Council, Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association, Ohio Soybean Council and the Rick Malir & Bonnie Coley-Malir Beef Leadership Fund. YCC kicked off Thursday evening at the Ronald McDonald House of Columbus where participants were able to tour the house and learn about its mission. Attendees also had the opportunity to network over a beef dinner with members of the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s Board of Directors, program sponsor representatives and other industry professionals. Vice President of Protein Procurement and Innovation, Wendy’s Quality Supply Chain 22 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2019
Co-op, Inc. (QSSC), Dr. Henry Zerby, served as the guest speaker for the evening and shared his thoughts on the future of the beef industry and some of the challenges it faces moving forward. On day two of YCC, conference attendees participated in a mini-Beef 509 session with Dr. Lyda Garcia, assistant professor of meat science for The Ohio State University’s Department of Animal Sciences. This handson experience included learning how meat is graded, the fabrication of wholesale and retail cuts, and other issues that can impact beef quality and pricing. Participants also viewed the champion beef carcasses from the 2019 Ohio State Fair and visited The Ohio State University’s football practice facilities. Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) staff then discussed the value of membership and the role OCA has in legislative and regulatory issues; participants also heard
from Executive Director of Government Affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Allison Rivera, about the latest federal issues impacting the cattle industry. The afternoon was spent at the Ohio Statehouse where participants met with Representative Darrell Kick (District 70). Representative Kick, who sits on the the House Agricultural and Rural Development Committee, spoke about current Ohio legislation affecting the beef cattle industry and answered questions from the group. That evening, participants were hosted at the home of program sponsor, Rick Malir and Bonnie Coley-Malir. While there, attendees were able to network with one another and learn more about the couple’s agricultural roots and their passion for the beef industry and professional development. The final day of the conference was kicked off by Ohio Beef Council (OBC) staff, with a discussion regarding OBC’s role

THE CLEMENS FAMILY
Cattle, conservation and race horses are all part of the Clemens family operation
Story & photos by Amy Beth Graves
asey Clemens is bouncing around the back roads of Morgan County pointing out areas he owns or rents. A parcel on the right, a parcel on the left. They’re not always large areas – sometimes they don’t even get some swaths planted – but put together as a whole they work for the family. “It’s not always easy but we have a good life here. It’s a complicated farm, and we put in long hours but it’s what we do and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” he said. Casey grew up on the farm, which his parents bought from his great great uncle in 1961. While the family had some sheep and cattle, he didn’t really get into the livestock until later in life. That’s mainly because he was too busy hauling equipment back and forth for the family’s business, Clemens Ford Tractor and Fertilizer Sales, which they operated for nearly 20 years. “I’ve been farming ever since I could push a clutch in. After high school, I kept on farming but really was never home. I was always up in Detroit where Ford was made and constantly bringing stuff back. I still haul some sawdust to the (Muskingum Livestock) sale and
a couple of other farms to earn a little extra money but I’m pretty much a ‘stay-at-homer’ now,” he laughed. The same could be said for his adult children, 26-year-old Brady and 23-year-old Vada. The brother and sister have their own registered Simmentals, which they show at the
and embryo (transfer). He has a very good eye for show cattle. He can look at them once and say ‘yep, I’ll take that one.’ Course it’s the most expensive one,” Casey laughed. Brady and Vada grew up in the showring and particularly liked going to the BEST shows in the winter. “The more BEST shows you went to, the better you did at your county fair. That repetition of going in the ring could really pay off,” said Casey’s mother, Joyce, who serves as the farm’s bookkeeper. Her husband, Mark, passed away last year. Vada has been accepted into Hocking College’s dental hygiene program but as her father says, she’s “not a goawayer.” “She works the ground in the spring, mows a lot of hay, rakes and does square baling. She’s very hands on because she grew up doing it,” Casey said noting that Vada runs the computer during Muskingum Livestock’s sale every Wednesday, sometimes putting in a 17-hour day there. Casey, who is a Muskingum Livestock board member, sells his commercial cattle there for its special
“It’s not always easy but we have a good life here.”
26 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2019
- CASEY CLEMENS Ohio Beef Expo and the Ohio State Fair. A couple of years ago, Brady bought 160 acres nearby as he started branching out on his own. The family business, Clemens Farms, Inc., is a commercial cow-calf operation that’s predominantly an Angus-Simmental cross. The family became interested in the Simmental breed when Brady showed a Simmental heifer at age 9. “There were a few cows here when we bought the farm but it’s really grown over the last 20 years because of Brady’s cattle knowledge. He owns and sells the bulls and has put the money into (doing artificial insemination)
feeder calf sale in December as well as throughout the year. The family does both fall and spring calving and focuses on raising healthy and well weaned calves. They use a creep feeder to help calves gain more weight and wean the calves with their mothers within eyesight. They also typically hand feed the calves twice a day to help calm them down. “Weaned calves at the stock sale bring you more money. Bawling calves in the ring don’t bring as much as calm calves. We really try to get them as calm as possible before the sale,” Casey said. Conservation is a big part of the family farm, and the Clemens have received several awards, including the State Conservation Farm Family award in 2014. The award recognizes farm families for their dedication to natural resources and their efforts to conserve soil, water, woodland and wildlife on their land. Besides cattle, the family raises corn, soybeans and hay. “We do whatever we can to take care of the land because it’s taken good care of us,” Casey said as he pulled up next to a new watering trough that he put in with the help of his local Soil and Water Conservation District. “For years now we’ve put in different conservation measures because the ground isn’t very flat here and having so much rain has made it challenging at times.” Over the years, the family has put in fencing to keep livestock out of waterways, used cover crops to help keep nutrients in the ground, put in grassed waterways and done minimum till using a salford tool, which digs 4 inches down into the ground. “Using the salford tool helps save the
soil because you’re not dicing things up so fine and you’re only doing one pass over the land instead of four or five. It really saves on soil, wear and tear and labor,” Casey said. A couple of years ago, Brady put in a feeding pad for the cattle and this year is having a manure pit installed. Both projects received EQIP funding from the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service. “Our springs have been pretty bad and even in the winter. There’s so much mud because the ground is wet,” Casey said. “Having this concrete down means less destruction of the ground. And having the manure facility means we’re able to spread manure when weather conditions are right. It’s all about water quality. We need to take care of our water.” Another area of interest for the family is horse racing. The Clemens raise standard bred trotters, which
race at county fairs and Ohio’s four raceways. Brady drives their horses at county fairs, and the family’s “getaway time” is watching the horses race in Columbus. When it comes to the farm, everybody pitches in to help, including Casey’s two brothers, David and Daniel, and his uncle, Sam. A friend, Trevor Ruff, also works on the farm. Saying that the farm is a good size right now, Casey is confident that it will remain in the family. “We’re busy and we work long hours but that’s what farming is. It’s challenging to stay above water at times and to keep going. But it’s worth it to be working for yourself. As Brady says ‘Well, if we’re going home at 9 p.m. at least it’s not because we’re driving home from Columbus or Cleveland because we could make more money there,’” he said. “We like what we do and that’s what matters the most.” v

Simply said…THANKS to all the exhibitors of the 2019 Ohio State Fair. We had an outstanding year with a lot of changes / nuances, and we pulled it off. Moreover, I can’t thank the beef barn staff enough for all their commitment and passion for making every year a great one. The “viaduct” curve ball was one none of us expected this year. It is greatly appreciated that all the sessions worked with us to make it happen. Losing a third of our viaduct bays was a challenge and we collectively worked together to make this year the best it could be, despite the circumstances. Special appreciation to the prospect folks that were willing to stall in the dairy barn. How about that Dean’s Charity Steer Show? At last count, we were approaching $150,000 for the Ronald McDonald House of Columbus. This would not have been possible without 13 of our junior families committing and participating. I continue to be amazed and proud of our youth and their families and how they give back in so many wonderful ways. I’d be remiss if I did not thank our friends from the hog barn for the awesome meal and concert on Thursday, as well as the Grauer Family, Si Pirogowicz and the sponsors for Friday’s incredible meal. The reason for all of this is the youth. I say this every year, but it is worth repeating…Ohio has unquestionably the greatest beef youth in the world. Once again, the number of “first time” exhibitors were overwhelming. Junior Nationals, Denver, Louisville, Kansas City…every credible show in this country is dominated by the youth of Ohio. These kids are the reason that I come back every year…I like the adults, but if it were not for the kids it would not be quite as nice. Thanks to all you parents for lending us your youngsters for a few days every summer. The future of our industry is in great hands here in Ohio. Super big thanks to Virgil, Stacey, Barb and all the staff at the OSF. Equally, none of what we accomplish at the OSF would be possible without the support and leadership of the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association and the awesome staff there. I pray that all of you have a safe and health filled fall and winter until our paths cross again. Go Bucks!

Ohio Beef Council at the State Fair!
Ohio State Fair Promotions:
Ohio Beef Council (OBC) worked in the beef barn at the Ohio State Fair to run the Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. store and the Cattlemen’s Country Club Putt-Putt Golf Course. OBC also offered virtual tours of ranches and feedyards with their virtual reality googles in the store area. There were multiple educational stations set up for the fairgoers to come in and learn about the beef industry. These stations included information about beef cuts and parts, checkoff dollars and the many by-products that stem from the cattle industry.
OBC hosted the annual Capital City Burger Battle at the Ohio State Fair. Seven teams of Ohio ProStart students competed for the title of champion burger. The students with the top three burgers received scholarships and cash prizes. Throughout the competition, members of the OBC Operating Committee and staff members grilled and prepared a variety of steak samples for the fairgoers to sample while they observed the competition.

Dean’s Charity Steer Show
Ohio Celebrities and 4-H Youth Making a Difference Photos by Linde’s Livestock Photos
new event at the 2019 Ohio State Fair, the Dean’s Charity Steer Show was a huge success – raising nearly $150,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Central Ohio. The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association is proud to have helped coordinate the event alongside The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and Telhio Credit Union. Hosted by Cathann A. Kress, vice president for agricultural administration and dean of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), the July 30 charity show included 13 teams of celebrity exhibitors and 4-Hers with their steers. It was held at the Ohio Expo Center and State Fair’s Voinovich Livestock & Trade Center. If you were unable to attend the show, donations to RMHC will be accepted through August 31 at give.osu. edu/deanscharitysteershow. “I am so appreciative of the
52 | Ohio Cattleman | Early Fall Issue 2019
unbelievable support we received in our first year of doing this.” said Kress. “It was wonderful to see us come together to celebrate agriculture and children, both our 4-H youth as well as youth who benefit from the wonderful Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.” In addition to RMHC, the big winners were the teams who won the Best Steer Award, the Showmanship Award, and the People’s Choice Award. Exhibitor Clark Kellogg, former NBA player and CBS Sports lead college basketball analyst and his 4-H teammate, Sydney Sanders from Highland County, took the Best Steer Award with Sanders’ Charolais, Cosmo. The Showmanship Award went to exhibitor Bob Peterson, public servant and 8th generation farmer from Fayette County and his 4-H teammate, Victoria Waits and her Angus steer, Rabbit, also from Fayette County. Exhibitor Adam Sharp, Ohio Farm Bureau executive vice president, along with his Miami County 4-Her Sam Sutherly and his crossbred steer,
Buttercup won bragging rights with the coveted People’s Choice Award. Celebrity exhibitors, in addition to Kress, Kellogg, Peterson, and Sharp, included Matt Barnes, WCMH-TV Channel 4 anchor; Mark Berven, president and chief operating officer of Nationwide Property & Casualty; Joshua Perry, former Ohio State and NFL football player, stood in for Bobby Carpenter and represented 97.1 FM The Fan, Columbus; Jay Edwards, public servant and small business owner from Athens County; Clay Hall, sports director for Columbus’ WSYX 6/Fox 28 TV; Woody Johnson, host of “Woody and the Wake-Up Call” on WCOL-FM 92.3, Columbus; Rick Malir, chief executive officer and co-founder of City Barbeque; Bob McElligott, sports broadcaster for the Columbus Blue Jackets; and Shelley Meyer, former first lady of Ohio State football and instructor for Ohio State’s College of Nursing. More than 900 attended the Steer Show event and made donations ranging from 87 cents to $15,000.
Individuals and organizations who bid on and “purchased” steers during the “sale” included Heartland Bank; Nationwide; Ohio State Fair; Telhio Credit Union; Mike and Leslie Bumgarner; United Producers, Inc.; Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation; City BBQ; Huntington Bank; Sparkman Mastek Family Foundation; Wise Show Cattle; Farm Credit Mid-America; Gibbs Farms LLC; Tom Price; Leeds Farm; Ohio Farm Bureau Federation; Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation; and three anonymous bidders. No actual transfer of animals occurred. Instead, all bids and sale proceeds were donated to RMHC. The Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation purchased the steer of Woody Johnson, co-host of “Woody and the Wake-up Call” on 92.3 WCOL and iHeart Media/Columbus, and 4-H member Lauren Schulte of Putnam County. With this purchase, the Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation also received an Ohio State themed quilt, handmade by Schulte’s grandmother. This quilt will be auctioned off at the 2019 Cattlemen’s Gala, with all proceeds going to RMHC. “Everyone at the Ronald McDonald House would like to express our sincere gratitude for allowing us to be part of such a special day,” said Dee Anders, chief executive officer and executive director of RMHC. “The positive energy and pride in that building could not have been stronger. We feel so blessed to be a part of the magic. The funds raised Tuesday are transformational for the charity. We are forever grateful for your friendship.” Mark your calendars now for the second annual 2020 Dean’s Charity Steer Show set for Tuesday, August 4.v

On the Edge of Common Sense By Baxter Black, DVM
The Feedlot Hand Life is just a bowl of cherries to a first rate feedlot hand, All the gates swing free and easy, every day’s precisely planned. The boss is always pleasant and lavish with his praise. And when your wife demands it, you get another raise. The pickup that you’re furnished came off the showroom floor, The horses all are gentle and facilities top drawer, The alleys lay so perfect when you’re pushin’ to the scale You only need to set one gate then put’em in the mail! The feed truck drivers thank you and insist you’re always right And when you have to block their way, they’re patient and polite. Plus, loadin’ fats is easy through you’re tired as you can be. ‘Cause the truckers all are helpful…and say, “Oh, please, let me!” The barn where they get processed is as modern as they come, Every hot shot’s always workin’, ain’t no pandemonium. The crowdin’ alleys built so good the cattle flow like wine. They almost fairly work themselves, they wait to get in line. And on those days when rain or dust or snow get in the way The boss says, “Take it easy, heck, they’ll wait another day.” On holidays like Christmas when you work the extra mile The overtime they pay makes all the hardship seem worthwhile. No feedlot cowboy worries ‘bout his job security They rarely ever lay one off, too valuable, ya see. I’ve heard’em say about the boss, “When all is said and done It’s hard to take his money ‘cause I’m havin’ so much fun!” Oh, there are days, they’d all agree that go against the grain, Receivin’ bawlin weaners in November’s freezin’ rain Or checkin’ pens in early March is really not that great When it takes a front end loader just to open up a gate. But, all in all, they love their work. The way their mufflers smell, The Terramycin on their hands, the Holstein steers from hell, Scoopin’ out the rainy bunks, a calvy heifer mess And the profound satisfaction when you lance a big abscess. The glamour of their work ensures an application glut. Though many hear the calling, just a handful make the cut. And he puts his heart into it and stays above the mob So he don’t have to give this up and get a real job.v www.baxterblack.com
NCBA News NCBA Hails Increased Access to European Markets for U.S. Beef
On August 2, 2019, Jennifer Houston, President of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), joined President Trump and other NCBA officers at a White House signing ceremony for an agreement that will establish a duty-free quota for high-quality American beef in the European Union (EU). The Office of the United States Trade Representative had previously announced the signing of an agreement with the European Union to establish a duty-free quota for high-quality U.S. beef from non-hormone treated cattle. Once implemented, the annual quota will increase from 18,500 metric tons in year one to 35,000 metric tons in year seven. The country-specific quota will benefit U.S. beef producers who participate in USDA’s non-hormone treated cattle program that was established in 1999. USTR estimates that this quota will increase annual U.S. beef sales in Europe from $150 million to $420 million in year seven.
NCBA Launches Cattlemen’s Call Podcast
During the 2019 Summer Business Meeting, NCBA launched a new podcast to focus on the stories and producers that make the beef industry great. The podcast, Cattlemen’s Call, will feature a new episode each month to share the stories and ideas from cattlemen and women across the nation. The first episode focuses on young producers entering into the family farm or ranch and the challenges that come with it. Each month, the podcast, which is hosted by Montana rancher and broadcaster Lane Nordlund, will bring a “coffee talk” style to the country, allowing listeners an inside look at the issues cattle producers are facing while sharing the stories of their lives and businesses. For more information, to listen and subscribe to the podcast, go to NCBA. org/CattlemensCall.aspx.
NCBA Takes the Fight to Fake Meat at Summer Business Meeting
During the 2019 Summer Business Meeting, NCBA redoubled their efforts to push back against deceptive and erroneous marketing and nutritional claims by plant-based and lab-created alternatives to real beef. Senior Vice President, Government Affairs, Colin Woodall, and Alisa Harrison, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing and Research, highlighted how NCBA is continuing to educate consumers and policymakers about the benefits of real beef and the often oversold claims of fake meat products. Woodall focused on the need for the federal government to ensure that beef nomenclature is protected in the marketing and labeling of fake meat. He also said the organization will continue to educate consumers about what exactly is in the plant-based fake
meat that is available in supermarkets and restaurants.

Ohio’s Premier Bred, Born & Raised Registered Steer & Heifer Youth Event Hosted by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association in conjunction with the Ohio Beef Expo and the Ohio State Fair.
2019 Ohio State Fair Results The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) hosted the Best of the Buckeye show at the Ohio State Fair July 24 Aug. 4, 2019. The Best of the Buckeye program, coordinated by OCA in conjunction with the Ohio Beef Expo and Ohio State Fair, had a strong start with 211 head of cattle nominated by youth and breeders. The program recognizes top Ohio bred and born registered steers and heifers, along with the breeder and exhibitor, in each breed division at the two shows. Best of the Buckeye provides Ohio seedstock breeders with an enhanced marketing opportunity for Ohio bred and born registered steers and heifers, creates a source of more moderately priced show
steers and heifers by providing a program with awards and prestige, and attracts new participants interested in showing at the Ohio Beef Expo and/or the Ohio State Fair. All nominating breeders will be recognized on OCA’s website at ohiocattle.org and will also be recognized for their honors achieved with the cattle they sell and nominate for the program. All participating breeders were invited to attend the Best of the Buckeye Breeders Reception preceding the Cattlemen’s Gala on August 24 at Leeds Farm in Ostrander, Ohio. This year’s generous sponsoring partners are The Folks Printing and Dickson Cattle Company, heifer division;
Jones Show Cattle and R & D Jones Excavating, steer division; and Sullivan Supply and Stock Show University, breeder recognition. Over $45,000 will be presented between the two shows in the form of premiums and awards. Every winning Best of the Buckeye exhibitor received a basic premium of $300 for champion, $200 for reserve champion, and $100 for third overall. Ohio breed associations also contributed additional premiums. OCA would like to thank these sponsors for contributing to a successful year of the Best of the Buckeye program. Visit www.ohiocattle.org/Youth/bestof-the-buckeye for more information.
*Additional premiums for the Angus divisions were sponsored by the Ohio Angus Association.

These five unique recipes ranged in price and skill level, so readers had the opportunity to create a meal they were comfortable with or test their grilling capabilities with something outside the box. In just three weeks, these recipes have been viewed by over 50,000 people on Facebook. Find all the recipes at ohiobeef.org.

OBC Visits Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher Conference
OBC Revamps Website
The Ohio Beef Council recently reconfigured the OBC website to increase its accessibility and userfriendliness in an effort to increase engagement with consumers and producers alike. The fresh look of the website reflects that of Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. (BIWFD) and increases the ability to share resources between the two websites in a seamless fashion. The website is still anchored around sharing the story of Ohio’s beef farming families and inspiring beef use
OBC Director of Education, Kagney Collins, attended the Ohio Association Teachers of Family and Consumer Sciences annual conference to exhibit the checkoff resources that are available to teachers and students. OBC’s Virtual Farm Tours (VFT) program was heavily discussed with conference attendees, as well as the other educational resources that checkoff dollars provide. VFTs allow students to experience life on a beef farm without ever leaving the classroom. In the fall of 2019, OBC will host six trips, targeting family and consumer science and culinary science classrooms.
Capital City Burger Battle
OBC hosted the annual Capital City Burger Battle at the Ohio State Fair. Seven teams of Ohio ProStart students competed for the title of champion burger. The students with the top three
burgers received scholarships and cash prizes. Throughout the competition, members of the OBC Operating Committee and staff members grilled and prepared a variety of steak samples for the fairgoers to sample while they observed the competition.
Checkoff ROI Study
In Fiscal Year 2019, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board (CBB) conducted an economic study to measure the return on beef producers’ and importers’ investments into the national portion of the Beef Checkoff program over the past 5-year period, 2014-2018. “An Economic Analysis of the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board Demand-Enhancing Programs” is the resulting study from Dr. Harry M. Kaiser, a Gellert Family Professor of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. A few of the highlights are: • The overall return for all nine CBB activities, is $11.91 per dollar invested. • Had there been no domestic CBB demand-enhancing activities over the latest 5-year period, total domestic beef demand would have been 14.3% lower than actual You can review the results of this study at beefboard.org. v
