A MINUTE WITH THE MEENTS The Hereford breed is having an excellent start to 2018 with many great things happening for Hereford breeders. The 11th Great Midwest Hereford Influenced Feeder Sale kicked off 2018 on January 2 in Carthage, IL. On New Year’s Day, when the Lowderman staff and crew started to weigh, grade, and sort the cattle it was a negative 16 below zero. A very special THANK YOU to Brent & Kris Lowderman, and their staff for all the work involved in hosting this sale each year, and making it successful. Hopefully it will be little warmer for the 12th Annual sale! There were 889 head consigned with 662 head being steers and the balance heifers. The average Hereford steer in the sale, sold for $1022, and the 45 head that weighed 912 pounds averaged $1301 per steer. There were 62 consignors from six states that participated in 2018. The 889 head was the largest number of cattle ever consigned in the 11 year history of the sale. This year was the second highest grossing sale behind 2015. Several new buyers bid, and bought cattle this year. Here are the larger lot results:

Harrs named OCA Seedstock Producer of the Year 2018

The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) awarded J & L Cattle Services of Jeromesville, Ohio, the Seedstock Producer of the Year Award at the OCA awards banquet held Jan. 20, 2018, at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio. OCA and Farm World jointly sponsor the Seedstock Producer of the Year Award, which was created to recognize top beef seedstock producers in Ohio. The award presentation featured a video of J & L Cattle Services that was generously sponsored by Centerra Co-op. J & L Cattle Services is owned and operated by Jeff and Lou Ellen Harr and their daughter, Keayla. The family manages around 80 mature registered Hereford cows, a spring calving group of 70, a fall calving group of 10-12 and feed out around 25-30 steers. The Harrs sell cattle through private treaty, at the Ohio Beef Expo and every other year during their J & L and Guests sale. The Harrs work to stay current by using available technology as much as possible for the continuation of high quality Hereford genetics and hope to continue the operation for years to come.

Bradfords Awarded the Buckeye Hereford Hall of Merit 2018

Longtime performance breeders Rex and Bonnie Bradford were awarded the Hall of Merit at the recent Buckeye Hereford Annual Meeting and Membership Banquet.

The Bradford cowherd is primarily victor based. They select for dark red, big hipped, deep bodied brood cows. Over the years they have worked hard to develop strong cow families with the ultimate goal to produce front pasture females and Dams of Distinction while also emphasizing carcass traits. Congratulations to Rex, Bonnie and Heather! 6 B U C K E Y E H E R E F O R D A S S O C I AT I O N

From Your National Queen By Abbygail Pitstick Hello, some of you may or may not know me, but I am Abbygail Pitstick. I am a senior at Miami Trace High School, and plan to attend Wilmington College after graduation. I will be double majoring in Agribusiness and Livestock Science. I am the daughter of Neil and Betsy Pitstick. I have three younger sisters: Madison, Emma, and Natalie Pitstick. I am the first generation breeder within my family. I began my journey in the cattle business in 2013, then purchased my first Hereford heifer in 2014. I started out with this one Hereford heifer, and now I am running a 40 head purebred Hereford operation. I really gravitated toward the Hereford breed, so I decided I wanted to get more involved. I finally met the qualifications to run for the Buckeye Hereford Queen this past year, so I was able to fill out an application. I was crowned the Buckeye Hereford Queen in January of 2017. This was my first time being in a position like the the Buckeye Hereford Queen, so I had a lot to learn. I had many great people that gave me advice and guided me along the way. I then decided to run for the National Hereford Queen position and submitted my application the first of September. I spent countless hours preparing for my upcoming interview in Kansas City. I made many new friends while in Kansas City that have definitely impacted my life. I was crowned the 2018 National Hereford Queen at the end of October while in Kansas City. Having the opportunity to be the Buckeye Hereford Queen was a great experience. It opened up many new friendships that I will carry on forever, it taught me how to be more personal with the Hereford breeders, and it taught me the proper ways of being in the queen position. Without the opportunity of being the Buckeye Hereford Queen, I would not be where I am today as the National Hereford Queen. I thank all of my supporters that supported me along the way. I could not have gone through all this without the support and help from my friends and family of my home State. I am now traveling all over the country, but I will never forget where my roots are, or where they have gotten me. After my reign as the National Hereford Queen, my future is not for certain, but one thing is for certain, my future is sure to contain more Hereford cattle and friend than ever. Sincerely, Abbygail Pitstick

A note from the President............ Hello Hereford Enthusiast: Another great year for Herefords and the breeders. It started off with a wonderful banquet this past weekend with a large crowd enjoying visiting with their friends and making new ones. We again had two speakers who were very informative as to the future of Herefods into the 21st century and the information of new products and new methods from fly control and the use of ‘moos’ in calving. As this is a very important year for Buckeye Herefords and the BHA we are planning a festive celebration at the Expo to celebrate the 75th birthday of the BHA. We will host a get together following the Hereford show on Friday in the cattle barn at the Buckeye stalls with cake, drinks and time to view the sale cattle, visit with the consignors and your fellow Hereford friends. We would like also to acknowledge those breeders of 50 years of more in the Hereford industry. I am enclosing a list of those breeders whom I have heard of, but I am sure there are those who still need to be on this list. If you know of anyone who needs to be added or those on the list who have not made that wonderful plateau please let Lisa Keets know.

From City Girl to Hands-On Farmer

By Katy Mumaw -February 8, 2018 MARIANNA, Pa. — When Nancy Midla was growing up in metropolitan New York, she never thought farming would become her passion. “I knew nothing about farming; the only pet I had as a child was a goldfish,” she said. Dentist or farmer Then Nancy met Les, her husband, while he was in dental school at Temple University, and they married in 1970. At that point, “she still thought she was marrying a dentist,” Les says. “I soon found out he was a farmer at heart,” Nancy said. “I was interested, though, because it was his passion.” In 1973, they moved back to Marianna, in Washington County, Pennsylvania, and a few years later, they purchased a homestead with land contiguous with his family’s farm. The farm is now 500 acres. When Les was young, his family milked cows. His grandfather and father also operated a retail processing plant and collected the milk from the other farmers and delivered it door to door. They sold the dairy cows in the 1950s and bought some beef cows to “keep the farm clean.” His family bought their first registered Herefords in 1956, when Les was 10. Nancy’s childhood in the city was much different, but she evolved as a farm wife, gradually learning and taking on responsibilities. She took an artificial insemination course and became involved in breeding, calf care, and daily operations, and now there isn’t an farm element she doesn’t have her hands in. Ag advocate With a background in education, once she married into the farm, she never stopped learning or teaching about agriculture. She became involved in the county cattlemen’s association, as a charter board member, and also joined the Washington County Farm Bureau, and was a driving force in bringing Ag in the Classroom to western Pennsylvania. During the 1980s, she visited elementary schools to teach some 400 students per year about agriculture through educational materials and slide presentations featuring her farm. “It is important to give students an awareness, so

they can have an appreciation for farmers and the work it takes to put their food on the table.” Nancy said. “Just like a firefighter — they learn about them and appreciate their service — the same awareness and respect should be given to the farmer.” She has been a Farm Bureau member for more than 40 years, playing a major role in Ag Days at the Mall, where she brought livestock from her farm into the center concourse of the local shopping mall so the public could see, smell and touch animals and learn where their food comes from. When their children, Kim and Brendan, were in 4-H, Nancy served on the county Extension board and as regional secretary. Nancy was appointed by the governor to be on the state board for farmland preservation. Her mother-in-law was one of the original board members in the 1980s that got the state program up and running. The Midlas were one of the first families to sell development rights to their farm, Flat Stone Lick, through the Washington County preservation program. Because of Nancy’s advocacy and commitment to teaching and learning about agriculture, the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau named her the Outstanding Woman in Agriculture this past November. “I always felt as though there was a need, and felt that if I didn’t do it — it wouldn’t get done. I can make a difference and it needs to be done,” she said about her volunteer work. “Over the years, there are not many times I’ve said no,” she admits. Les supports her volunteer work and is involved in some himself. “It is important to give back, for the good of the order,” he said. Purebreds On the farm, Nancy does her part to move the Hereford breed forward. “We are all about the data,” she said. “Responsible purebred breeders track and submit lots of data.” Nancy records herd details, and sends hundreds of data points such as birth and weaning weights, body part circumferences and many more to the national association, so they can compare and track the breed. They send blood samples for genetic DNA testing, as well. They can tell a lot from DNA testing, but it doesn’t replace the data, she said. They sell at purebred sales each fall and raise commercial bulls. For the past several years, they have been using sexed semen to get females. Their purebred Hereford herd has about 70 calves a year. continued on page 10 TRENDS 9

They use the males as bulls or steers for freezer beef. They ultrasound the yearlings in February to check for appropriate sized ribeyes and marbling. Nancy loves Herefords for their docile disposition and wouldn’t raise another breed. Succession The Midlas are proud of their family and their farm, but have not yet solidified their succession plan. Their son, Brendan, is an engineer by day, but is active on the farm. He has two children, who also love the farm, the Midlas said. “He would do it full time in a heartbeat, if it could support him and his family,” Nancy said. Kim, their daughter, lives in Erie, where both she and her husband are also engineers. The couple, both in their early 70s, say the farm’s future is still a big question mark. They have worked with an attorney on the matter, but haven’t been able to get their children to commit. “There has been a lot of thought and no action,” Les admitted. They are hopeful the succession plan will work itself out, but for now they aren’t eyeing retirement, and Nancy has no plans to stop educating others and making her mark on quality Hereford beef.
