Another livestock industry first from Sullivan’s ... the Innovative Leader.

SMART SENSATION the

The Smart Series, Made in the USA!

Brush™

by Sullivan’s

The Smart Sensation like no other. The advantage of the Smart Sensation is how it amplifies the volume of the hair as it lifts up from the hide without causing curls, kinks or matting that are often |associated with rice root or massage brushes. With the 129 precisely placed ball-tipped teeth, you can actually see the Smart Sensation brush create hair separation off the skin allowing air to flow deep into the hair base for added hair stimulation and hair growth. Healthy for hide and hair, the Smart Sensation gently massages the hide to stimulate blood flow that releases the natural oils from the skin to coat the hair and promote healthy hair growth. The Smart Sensation is similar to human vent hair brushes but has been designed with the proper size for show cattle and a more comfortable handle application. Cattle love the feel of the stimulating Smart Sensation!

Patent pending.

from the

editor Hello everyone! In the past few days, I have noticed a definite change in the air. The breeze is a little cooler – the sunlight a little different – and the trees are a shade less green. Suddenly, it came to me – it is starting to feel like Fall! I love this time of year for several reasons. The first reason is that it means Christmas is just around the corner and I LOVE Christmas! The other reason is because it signals the start of the feeder steer sales.

P.O. Box 41430 • San Jose, CA 95160 (408) 776-7611 • Fax (408) 776-9811

For me, raising steers is what I “DID” growing up. My family took trips to different states to search and select just the right calves for the following year’s project. Many many hours of planning and working on those steers in preparation for different fairs was what it took for me to achieve the goals I set each year for my projects. My plans and goals worked because I viewed my steer projects as a business. I made a plan and followed it. From talking to breeders, helping plan a road trip, selection, expenses, and projected income, all these came together in my business plan. It helped me to make enough money to pay my way through college. I sold a lot of steers and worked for many cattle people in order to do this. I had a great time and cherish those memories. It also helped me to transfer my skills from the hands-on with all the cattle, and worked it into the magazine I do today.

I am not so sure I would want to totally rely on selling and fitting cattle to put myself through college today, as the numbers would be daunting, but I can say it’s still a great stepping stone or tool to use in financing that big undertaking. So don’t make light of raising animals. Make your project, no matter the size or scope, a business. This will work for raising market or breeding projects. Set up a budget that includes purchases and expenses, as well as advertising and marketing, and then add in a healthy dose of responsibility, hard work, and pride, and you will be well on your way to a profitable venture.

The 2013 CJLA membership drive is ready to start. The website is being updated and you will be able to join and pay online with PayPal.

As you read through this issue, I hope you will use the advertising as a tool for searching for your projects. Please contact the breeders with any questions you have or just to visit about their genetics and what they will be selling that may work to meet your goals. We are so fortunate out here to have so many breeders working hard to raise animals for youth projects. Even in tough times, we all still believe in the future of our youth and the benefits of being involved in raising livestock. Stay positive, work hard, and have fun!

Time to Plan Ahead! The November/December Issue is our

Hey...Let’s Have a Sale!! Helpful tips on putting on a sale By Geoff Gates - Gator Auction Company Putting on a sale can be very rewarding and stressful all at the same time. There’s no better way to showcase your livestock than having a public sale. When one decides to have a sale, there are several things to consider before that big day. A lot of thought and hard work goes into how to market livestock. If it’s your first time having a sale there can be some critical things to your success. One of the first things to keep in mind is: Get real! Your expectations have to be realistic. You may have the best pieces of livestock you’ve ever raised or put together and that’s great, but every one of them will have a value in the prospective buyers’ mind on sale day. Without sacrificing quality too much, keep in mind that there should be a variety in your offering.

two times you accept bids. At the cut off date, if you have 5 people that have placed bids on the same lot, you then call each one of them back to find out if they want to bid any further, and the last person with the highest bid buys the animal. Phone bids are convenient for some buyers that cannot be there on sale day or unable to see the livestock. This can be good and bad. You can describe the livestock to them to the best of your ability and possibly gain customers that you’ve never had before. On the other hand, if your description is misinterpreted, it could be difficult if that person that hasn’t seen them does not approve of the representation of what they bought. The phone bid process could take a long time also, as you’re at the mercy of getting a hold of people in today’s busy world.

As mentioned, a lot of planning needs to go on. Such as, what type of sale format are you going to have? When marketing livestock to the general public there are several types of sales to consider. You need to consider what suits you best to maximize your experience and that of the buyers.

Private Treaty: This too has become another popular choice in the last decade. This method is nothing different than buying a car off a car lot. You determine a set price on each lot and sell them that way. Private treaty sales can also be run in a bid off type situation much like and/or the phone bid above.

Live Auction: A live auction sale would be considered the most exciting type of sale in terms of the activity surrounding it. True price discovery is made on this day. How you go about preparation of your livestock to get them to this day is crucial to your success. It would be suggested that you hire professionals to work your sale. An auctioneer and good ring man are important to your success on that day. They have the ability to read your crowd and assist them through the bidding process. Furthermore, they work together with the sale manager (if there is one) to maximize sales. Remember, there sole purpose and job is to get you (the owner) the maximum they can out of your livestock. They have years of training in doing so. Another thing a live auction does is gets a lot of people to look at your livestock all at the same time or day, as opposed to other methods of selling which we’ll discuss below. And one of the biggest positives, your sale is completed and over within one day.

Online Sale: One of the newest forms of selling are online sales. These sales use the internet and there again, have a set minimum price where the prospective buyers can place bids online in an auction format where the highest bidder wins. These also have a set time frame in which to have bids placed.

Marketing and Advertising: Do not cut corners here! Most often I see people trying to cut costs in this area. Although it may be one of your higher sale expenses, it’s also one of your biggest rewards! You have got to let people know about your sale. Advertising is what is going to help get you recognized and bring people to your livestock. If you’re proud of your merchandise this is the way to let people know. With new forms of social media and advertising, it becomes somewhat simpler to get your message out. Social media and the internet can help the frequency of your message. However, you need to do print advertising too. If you think about it, we see and get several messages per day in our brain. We see things on sites such as Facebook and various websites; and those things may come and go from our minds. If you have a hard copy such as a magazine or sale catalog, it’s a constant reminder and your poten-

Phone Bid: In the last ten years, phone bid sales have been a popular choice. In this situation, one may set a “floor” or minimum bid price on each lot. From there, if a buyer is interested in a lot they either declare a bid at the floor price or bid higher than the floor price. Bids can be taken at any increment you choose. In this scenario, the seller designates a “cut-off” date. For example: if you declare a cut off date on Friday evening a certain date, you would also have a start date of which in between those september/october 2012

Animal Handling – An Introduction Dr. Lynn Delmore, Delmore Consulting Certified Meat Plant Animal Welfare Auditor Professional Animal Auditor Certification Organization (PAACO) Animal Agriculture plays a crucial role throughout the world. Handling animals in a humane way is the responsibility of all involved. We treat the animals carefully using the best tools or techniques available because we care about them. Providing such care is not only the “right” thing to do, but can be gratifying and profitable. When animals are cared for properly it helps maintain healthy animals and allows them to grow faster, increases productivity and profits. But ultimately, it is the satisfaction people get in knowing that they have provided the proper care for animals that is most rewarding.

trasting piece of flooring. Likewise, these animals are sensitive to rapid movement; they perceive fast moving objects as a predator. Slow, calm, methodical movement is always better when you are working with animals. Animals work well when they are given the time to see and evaluate their surroundings. When they are under stress during handling they are more likely to hold their heads high in a state of alertness, and not be willing to move forward without first visually accessing the situation. It is prudent to allow the lead animal to put their head down and evaluate the flooring and/or surroundings and determine it is safe, so that then all the other animals will follow the leader. If this is not done, too often the lead animal will panic and turn back the whole group of animals.

To understand good handling, one must consider inherent and learned animal behaviors. Cattle, sheep, goat, horses, donkeys are the most commonly kept grazing animals. By contrast pigs are omnivores, but many of their instinctive and learned behaviors are similar to those of grazing animals, thus the same handling principles can be used. Most animals use their sensory systems to evaluate the world around them. Typically, grazing animals have very sensitive hearing, in fact their ears move independent of each other allowing them to “watch” things with their ears. Because of their sensitive hearing, loud or high-frequency noises are stressful to animals. Animals are responsive to a person’s voice and recognize some tones as threatening, eliciting the flight or fight response in those animals. The best animal handlers are quiet in their nature, never hoot and hollering around the animals or at the animals.

At the heart of livestock handling is good animal handling facilities - pens, corrals, shelter, alleyways, Allow livestock time to move across a scales, chutes and transjuncture of contrasting flooring materials portation vehicles. Good animal handling facilities utilize our knowledge of the intrinsic and learned behaviors of the animals in their design, up keep and use. Based on these behaviors, facilities should block vision to keep animals calm; blocking their vision from seeing people and other distractions. Out of sight, out of mind really works with some animals, thus visual blocking can be very beneficial. Good lighting is also important for successful handling. Animals have a tendency to move from dimly lit areas to brighter areas. Lighting can also be manipulated to minimize shadows, a common distracter. Well managed facilities identify potential distractions that Woven tires can be used to create non-slip flooring. may cause balking. Shadows, reflections on water, movement ahead, rattling chains, loud or intermittent noises are example of sensory details that animals commonly react to. Good flooring is crucial to proper handling. Animals will become stressed when they cannot get their footing; nonslip flooring is essential. Lastly, low stress restraint is needed, we all need to doctor or care for animals up close from time to time. Unfortunately, poor restraining techniques lead to severely

The most predominant sense to stimulate animal’s behavior is vision. Grazing animals have nearly 360 degree vision, with only a small blind spot directly to the rear of the animal. These animals are constantly aware of their surroundings, and are evaluating the potential threat from whatever they see. They are especially sensitive to harsh contrasts between light and dark colors. Shadows are particularly disturbing to grazing animals and animal movement from sunny to shady areas and vice versa is often challenging. Animals will sometimes balk or refuse to walk over a puddle, or patch of shade or sun to avoid stepping on a con-

stressed and agitated animals. This stress is often caused by a deep breach in the animal’s flight zone, causing panic. Principles of low-stress animal restraint can be utilized to minimize fear and anxiety when animals must be restrained. These low-stress restraint principles include:

as well as larger scale farms and ranches and harvest facilities. The benefits of good animal handling practices are numerous and relatively easy to achieve once you understand how and why livestock react the way they do. In the coming issues, this series will continue to explore animal handling throughout different segments of the livestock industry.

She is a certified by PAACO - Professional Animal Auditor Certification Organization as a Meat Plant Animal Welfare Auditor. Dr. Delmore is an Adjunct Professor in the Animal Science Department at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo working closely with the Meat Science program and holds a position on the Animal Science Department Advisory Committee. Dr. Delmore was formally the Food Safety and Regulatory Compliance Manager for Golden State Foods with facilities in California and Georgia. She was responsible for overall implementation and execution of technical support for the meat operations including quality assurance, regulatory compliance, food safety, and process control.

She has been active in the industry on numerous committees and as a speaker related to HACCP, food safety, FSIS regulations, animal handling and Industry Best Practices.

One of the most common misperceptions of animal handling is that handling animals faster is more efficient and profitable. The opposite is actually true. When facilities are designed well, animals easily walk from one location to another including through restraints such as chutes. Moving animals slowly results in animals turning back less while moving through alleys, less time off feed due to stress, less banging into other animals, fencing or gates which in turn decreases injuries and bruising. The concept of good handling practices and properly designed facilities is not limited to big commercial livestock operations, well designed facilities are appropriate and necessary for backyard youth livestock projects, Grooved concrete to create non-slip flooring family farms and solid walled working pens. and ranches,

provide the high quality and safe food that meets customers’ expectations.

Animal Welfare ~ The Cornerstone to Livestock Production

As a veterinarian working closely with both animals and consumers, Swift thinks it is incredibly important that both parties understand every step of the process of how food, including food from animals, gets to our tables. Five easy ways customers can help farmers help farm animals 1. Seek out a farm and ask for a tour Farmers want to show you how they raise their animals, but unfortunately, have done a poor job of letting customers know this. Wondering how to connect with a farm? Try the phone book, a web search or even social media.

I rarely write about anything that I feel can cause controversy. I stay away from politics, and the personal choices people have on how they farm or ranch. For I believe that everyone has their reasons for choosing a republican party, a democratic party, tea party etc. As for types of farming/ranching; organic, grass fed, hormone free, range free, conventional, etc. are some of the many choices. I believe it is a choice and I fully respect each individual’s beliefs, its what works best for them and their family.

If you still cannot find a farm, contact your county or University Extension service or your local or state Farm Bureau. Any of these groups will be able to put you in touch with a farm in your area. If you have concerns about how “factory farms” take care of their animals, make a point to see of one of them on your farm tours. I can speak from my fifteen years of experience when I say farm size is in no way related to animal welfare. 2. Call the company that produces the animal food products you consume and ask what kind of welfare standards and audits are in place to make sure these animals are receiving proper care While farmers and food processors have always been concerned about the welfare of the animals, we realize that as more customers become removed from a farm setting, it is important that we have third-party audit systems in place to verify animal care standards. These auditors are generally highly trained professionals such as veterinarians and animal science PhDs who have years of experience with cattle health, nutrition, behavior and welfare. These people use their knowledge, along with scientifically based research to make factually based assessments on whether or not animals are receiving proper care.

One topic that I do not twist on is animal care for I believe that if we do not properly care for our livestock, it is a reflection of the type of human being I am. Animal Care and Welfare is our number one priority on our ranch and I can only hope that it tops the charts at yours as well. Now more than ever animal agriculture is under the microscope as to how we treat our livestock. Never before have our customers become so involved with where their food comes from and how that animal was treated prior to harvest. A colleague of mine recently wrote a piece for CNN NEWS ~ Eatocracy, that I thought was very well done. I asked Ryan Goodman if it would be ok to republish in my monthly column and he agreed. I was so pleased as I believe Ryan is one of the best agvocates out there right now for American Agriculture and someone we can all learn from.

3. Learn about the challenges farmers face that do not involve their animals Farmers face many pressures daily that influence the sustainability of their operations. Many have faced the pressures of having to grow larger and become more efficient in order to stay in business. Some are able to accept these challenges, while others, due to many internal and external pressures, cannot. In order for a farm to remain profitable and sustainable, economic factors must be balanced with animal welfare.

This is what Ryan had to say ~ Proper animal care is a topic of big concern for anyone talking about our food supply. Recently, Eatocracy featured Humane Society food policy director Matthew Prescott’s thoughts about what you, the customer, can do to improve the lives of farm animals. As a farmer, I asked myself what I wish my own customers could do to learn more about animal care standards.

4. If you shop in a grocery store, tell management that you want to meet the farmers who supply the animal food products they sell These stores need to know that you are concerned about farm animal welfare and you want to get your information directly from the source. Nothing sends a message to a business louder than requests coming directly from the customer. If it is important to you, it is important to them. I have farmer friends who really enjoy participating in grocery store events to meet people buying their products.

I turned to a friend in Florida who is a cattle veterinarian and, like many of you, a consumer faced with the task of making food choices for her family. Kathy Swift, DVM, grew up on a 100-cow dairy farm in Northern Virginia. She takes great pride in giving the best attention possible for the cattle under her care. While providing quality, individual, veterinary care is essential for these farm animals, it is just as important to her to help her farmers do the best they can to

If you have done your research, and have connected with a farm and food supplier that meets your criteria of humane animal standards, then go ahead and enjoy. If you decide to go meatless a night or two a week, that is okay too. The grain and produce farmers in this country work very hard and deserve just as much recognition for producing a safe food supply. Meat, fish and dairy products can be a part of healthy, balanced diet.

I think that my friend and Animal Advocate, Andy Hutchinson, sums it up best ~ most consumers just want to know that we have good track records. They want a simple explanation of what we do, that we take good care of our animals, that we are not factory farmers, we are family farmers. They are concerned about the environment, but when we tell them the stories of improving our land and water they are satisfied. They are concerned of the safety of our food, confused about the different choices but when you give them a simple answer that gives them security. It satisfies them.

As a young person involved in the day to day life of animal care what would you do to tell your story? Each one of us should have an answer and if not we need to think a bit about why we do what we do and why is it important to do the best we can in caring for our livestock and sharing the story.

CJLA News

A little CJLA News for you!

It is official – Summer is over and School days are here again! Participation at all sanctioned shows has held strong this year – with many shows posting higher entry numbers than in the past. Big thank you’s go out to all the people who put on our CJLA shows – and also to the members and families who support those events.

A Message from CJLA Jr. Board Member Kelsie Bowles. Everyone tries to balance their life between school, friends, sports, and other extracurricular activities. However most people don’t have to worry about taking that extra time in the morning to feed their animals before school or spend those precious after school hours working jackpot and county fair animals. Raising animals is not only hard work, but it is a time consuming project that can cut into homework or studying time. The studying time that could be used to get that extra point on the test or adding that extra something to a huge project, is usually put towards our animals.

Be sure to check out the points listed below. All shows through Surf-n-Turf are included except for the High Desert Classic – 2 Shows. Some of you in the heifer division may notice that your points have been moved from a breed division to the AOB division. This is because the California Junior Heifer Associations require a CJLA member to also be a member of their California Junior Association in order for points to be counted in that breed division. Once I received an updated and current year paid membership list from each association, I was able to verify that requirement and points were either left in a breed division or moved to AOB. Please call me if you have questions about this adjustment or for any points questions.

Just like many other jackpot kids, attending a college with a great agriculture program is something we all dream of. Making a career out of our passion for livestock is something which we always strive for. Therefore, being able to balance school, friends, and animals is no easy task. Although it may be hard to juggle everything, there are ways to work things out and balance everything just right.

Be sure to check out the CJLA website. Updates are posted regularly and we are adding new features. The big news is that we are setting up Paypal so you can join CJLA and pay membership fees online, purchase CJLA items, AND there will be sections for CJLA members to vote, rsvp and purchase tickets for the banquet, plus supporters will be able to pledge and pay sponsorship funds.

For example, feeding is always a pain to do during the school year especially after staying up late working on a project. However, there is one thing I do which helps me get that extra 20 minutes of precious sleep. After the animals are done eating at night, I start preparing their meal for the morning and lay it out so that cuts back on the rush of mixing all the grain and supplements in the morning. Then you can go to school and try to get as much work done as you possibly can so that you can work animals and finish other homework.

The Junior Board is working on some fund-raisers –we will get the word out on those soon! They are going to be exciting for sure! Sponsorship letters will be mailed soon and we will need many items for the CJLA Banquet auction. It is NOT TOO EARLY to be thinking of items you can bring or get donated for the auction – or who you can contact about supporting the CJLA Award Program. It is imperative that EVERYONE help out where they can to recruit funds for the CJLA. All of these donations go directly toward the many awards that are given out to the top ten members in all species, showmanships, and overall categories. Thank you to everyone who helps out!

Once you get home, the best thing to do is to work some of your animals to give your mind a break from all the school work. Then once you are done working some of your animals, go inside and start working on any homework or study for your upcoming test. Then whenever you need a study break, the best thing to do is go work hair on your steer for a little bit, brace your lambs or goats, or walk your pig. Any animal is a good study break.

Contact: Mary Ann Bush (831) 905-5665 for Points and Rules or Heidi Beljean (408) 888-2503 for all other CJLA questions. Email: cjlainfo@yahoo.com Website: www.cjlainfo.com

SHOWS INCLUDED IN THIS SET OF POINTS Sierra Winter Classic; Mjc Showmaster Classic; Red Wave Classic; Western Bonanza (2 Shows); Orange Blossom Klassic (2 Shows); Cattlemens Jackpot; Pork Spectacular; Northern Exposure Spring Jackpot (2 Shows); Monterey Bay Classic; Valley Classic Boer Goat Show (2 Shows); Intelli-Show Swine Jackpot; Siskiyou Golden Jackpot Show; Pacific Coast Jackpot (2 Shows); Calif. Jr. Charolais Assn. Field/Day & Show; Southwest Regional Hereford Show; Surf n Turf Jackpot Show. (High Desert Classic – 2 shows – is not yet included in the point totals)

When it comes to long projects that are assigned during jackpot shows, the best thing to do is work on them in the car ride on the way to the show. It is always the best place to get started on that book report that’s due in a week or an essay that needs to be finished up. Nevertheless, balancing school and raising animals could be a hard task but there are ways to make it easier. Everyone has their own way of dealing with the stress that comes with raising animals, but if it is something you truly love, then it is worth it in the long run. september/october 2012

Continued from Page 20 tial buyers are more apt to stay committed to coming to your sale. Magazines and catalogs are tangible and a great way to promote your sale.

are going to be a lot of upfront costs in putting a sale on in the first year. In figuring your budget, always have a “slush” fund set aside for unexpected expenses that come up at the last minute. The closer you get to sale time, the more things may come up and you should consider some flexibility in your budget. I’m not saying to go way out of line, but just remember, there are some costs that always seem to surface that you may have not thought about. Furthermore, if you don’t have to use this “slush” fund, then you’ll be ahead of the game.

Frequency of your marketing and advertising is also key to success in getting people to view your livestock and attend your sale and/or bid online. Once your sale date is set, you need to work backwards from that date to start your advertising. Also, if your sale is set at a certain date and there are other sales on the same date, wouldn’t it be smart to get your message out first? Key point here is; stay in touch with potential buyers as much and frequent as possible. The whole idea of having a sale is to get as many people to attend and get their eyes on your livestock so that you as the seller can maximize your selling opportunity. I am a big proponent of advertising. If you are going to use pictures in your advertising, make sure they are good pictures; clear, crisp, good lighting, and livestock set up properly in the picture. If you have a bad picture of one of your best animals, that doesn’t do any good. You see them everyday and know they are good but if you put out a bad picture of them, chances are nobody else is gonna agree with you. Good pictures of livestock spark and create interest for your potential buyers to come look at them or pick up the phone to talk to you about them.

In summary, having a sale can be rewarding. Whatever type of sale you choose make sure you have strategies in place to help make it as successful as you can. You’ll also learn a lot from one sale to the next. The things that worked good and the things that need to be changed. You’ll also learn about the type of sale you have. Is it better to have an online, private treaty, phone bid, or live auction sale? Which one of these will I get the most satisfaction and opportunity for success? All of these sale methods take planning and I suggest you plan early on every one of them. If you don’t, you’ll be sorry. If you’re not sure about which method to choose, pick up the phone and contact a professional. It doesn’t cost anything to talk these people and from your discussion, he or she might be able to bring up things for you to consider that you hadn’t even thought of. They are here to help and know what they’re doing - you’ll be glad you did.

Budgeting for Sale Expenses:

In the next issue, we’ll discuss the mechanics of your sale once it is here. Until then, Plan Early and Plan Often!!

As mentioned above, really have a talk with yourself about the expectations of your livestock to sell. Obviously, we all want to entertain a profit. However, if this is your first time putting on or having a sale, profits may not be as good as they could be after a few years of establishing yourself in the marketplace. There

september/october 2012


By Kirk Kimmelshue As we roll into the fall of a Presidential election year, do you find yourself increasingly inundated with political attack ads and a general feeling of just wishing the election season would be over? Are you so busy moving cows, bailing hay and gearing up for the fall show season that you haven’t even had time to stop and be bothered by all the political mumbo jumbo? Or are you anxiously counting down the days to the November 6, 2012 election and following it intently?

Giving Agriculture a

enough at stake, you stay the course. Well folks, just like that great new heifer prospect, our industry is good enough, and politically, there is a ton at stake, so we must stay the course. You bet, government and some of these politicians are often full of piss and vinegar and seem to be doing all they can to make working with them anything but enjoyable. But just like that heifer calf, not only must agriculture stay the course, we must ante up in our efforts. We must become more assertive and aggressive in the political process. Just like breaking that new Angus heifer, we must try new things, become increasingly patient and less worked up and hotheaded, and we must work our tails off to really make a difference or a change. It can be done, but just like that heifer, it’s going to take a lot of effort from a lot of different people.

Whether you fall into any of the above scenarios or not, I think we can all agree that what we want out of the upcoming election is for our industry to not be hampered or hindered by the results. Does agriculture have anything at stake in the upcoming election? Do the votes or voice of production agriculture even count? The answer to both questions is absolutely. Let’s be honest, we all have days or many days where we are completely disenchanted with American politics and the United States political system. There are days we’d like to clean house, sweep everyone in Washington D.C. out of town and bring in a whole new crew. Further, we’d like to do the exact same thing at our state Capitols and with our state legislatures as well. While I wouldn’t disagree with this sentiment on either count, the bottom line is, it’s not going to happen. In order for agriculture to take a stand and let our voice be heard, we’ve got to start doing something about it.

In order for our industry to be well represented in both Washington D.C. and our state Capitols, we’ve got to make our voices heard. Sometimes, this is merely as simple as making sure we go to the polls and vote. Other times, it may mean volunteering for a local candidate that is supportive of our industry by phone banking, walking precincts and making contributions to their campaign. It may even mean getting involved with a Political Action Committee (PAC) that represents your interests and the interests of our industry.

POLITICAL VOICE

Sometimes, the most powerful thing you can do for agriculture is to talk to some of your friends who aren’t involved in our industry. Talk to them and explain why you’re supporting certain candidates or certain propositions and initiatives. The most powerful voice during this heightened political season is that of your neighbor who you know and trust.

Let’s consider this example: you’ve got a great new early spring Angus heifer calf you’ve just weaned. You’ve got her home at the show barn and she is looking like the real deal. One of those calves that have you really excited not only for the fall, but also has you looking for a hotel room for Angus Jr. Nationals. You begin working with her more closely only to find out that she is full of piss and vinegar and has a whole lot of attitude. She hates the halter, you, being in the show barn, refuses to eat and on the whole makes working on the newest set of cattle a whole lot less enjoyable.

I know we are all busy preparing for harvest, weaning calves, going back to school, getting ready for the fall majors and preparing for the winter, but we cannot afford to let the upcoming election go by without making an impact. More importantly, our industry can’t afford to let the upcoming election go by without making and impact, and in many cases making a change. Get to the polls, cast your ballot and make your voice heard. It does matter, it does count and you can make a difference.

If this heifer represents what you feel needs to be the future of the breed, do you quit on her just because she’s rough to be around? Perhaps you think this new addition to the show string offers the industry exactly what it’s been missing. If she’s going to make a big difference for you and your operation, do you give up on her because she’s a pain to deal with and refuses to work with you?

The author can be contacted via email by sending a note to kimmelshue@gmail.com or by following @kimmelshue on Twitter.

If she’s truly good enough and her contribution to the breed and the future is important enough, you stay the course. If there is september/october 2012

Korner How Did You Spend Your Summer Vacation? By Kathleen Wood Vieira

this one, less for that one, you say. Brush more, lead more, brace more, practice more. You know it will pay off in the end, but often time management becomes a difficult task faced with the multitude of activities vying for your members’ time.

You know who you are! Coach, critic, teacher, referee, critic, you have worn all well. You are the person who plans vacations around county fair schedules. You are a 4-H leader! Sometimes you get thanks, often you get grief, but you are an important part of young people’s lives and well after they are grown, they will remember even the worst times as the best times.

If your members do well, you may be the object of criticism from their fellow competitors and often from fellow competitors’ parents. Rumors fly, tempers flare, but remember your honesty is your hallmark. If your members do poorly, you may take the brunt of it. In the heat of disappointment, parents may condemn your leadership style instead of taking a hard look at how diligent their child really worked or even at how their own parenting skills affected the outcome. You become the great negotiator, calmly fielding complaints and offering suggestions for the future.

You offer encouragement, but often have to both cajole and threaten to make the best better. Record books? Nobody really likes to do those things, but everyone breathes a sigh of relief when they’re done and put on the shelf. You have taught the basics of record keeping and who knows, you may have encouraged an aspiring accountant. Demonstrations? One of mankind’s greatest fears is getting up before a crowd and talking. You 4-H leaders lead by example, teaching and talking at each project meeting. How many of your members have learned to meet and conquer this fear head on because of your insistence that they stand up before the group and talk? Young people who are comfortable before a group can go on to just about anything in life from a successful used car salesperson to President of the United States.

So what prompted you to enter into this agreement which takes so much of your time and causes you so many headaches? Did your own kids want to take a project and the leader was retiring? Did that leader tell you, “Hey, it’s really easy!” and you believed him? Did you have a special skill that needed sharing? Do you have a special 4-H mentor who shared her precious time with you and made you feel good about yourself? Yep, those are the reasons that bring leaders into the program and it is the kids who keep you coming back year after year.

You keep a tight watch on your members’ projects and down to the wire; it consumes your days and nights. Showmanship practice, weekly weigh-ins, barn decorations, the closer the fair gets, the faster the time goes. More feed for

Planning for Success

By Joel Judge

I have only seen one winner ever able to stay together or good enough to win the following summer or fall. I have appropriately named it the WB curse!! My point being cattle don’t stay in the same state and you have to plan for your success whether it’s now or later.

Failure to plan is planning to fail, a quote I used so often during my teaching days at Cal Poly. This quote holds so true today in all aspects of life. After several years of showing cattle, I decided that there is no way to keep cattle in this perfect state that we are striving for each show. Cattle grow and stop, get lean and then fat etc. the only constant in their life is change. This prompted me to analyze cattle from a different perspective, I try to choose and manage steers and heifers based upon our goals. The key word in the last statement is goals, which now forces each showman to put some thought into each year’s project. Goals would include winning a few jackpot shows, winning your county fair market show, winning a regional or national breed show for heifers. Other goals could include making money or having a good experience for the first year or winning showmanship. Regardless of the outcome, you are never going to achieve anything without a goal.

When looking at heifers, the same selection principles apply as what I discussed about the steers. Heifers really need to have the right parts, it starts at the ground and moves up, soundness, volume and capacity, feminine features, and then muscle. The next big part is feed and condition, this is where planning really comes into play as there really is no set end point other than calving and even then you can continue to show. Feeding heifers is so much harder than steers because of breed, frame size, hormones and most of all what or where your goals are for them to peak. It is very hard to make a heifer win as a baby and a big junior yearling without lots of management and planning. In order to have success you once again must decide what your goals are for showing your heifer project. For example, if you want to win most of the jackpot shows in California, then you will be keeping a heifer on feed from November to late March most likely, if you don’t plan ahead she will be over done or “cooked” for State fair in the summer. If State fair is your goal, then after the first few Jackpot shows you need to either slow her down on feed by feeding a low energy, high roughage diet or just turn them out on grass altogether. You have to be constantly readjusting and planning ahead to try and meet your goals. We try to have cattle peak around Jan 15th to Feb 15th and then again mid-summer for the state fairs and national breed shows. In between, we have just decided that this is time that we are just going to readjust, based upon their condition, size and structure. I like to have heifers and steers that are going to be competing hard in the end not as concerned with them winning early in life. Since we have taken this different perspective, things have become much better because we make plans based upon our goals and this helps us keep things in perspective and on track, even if we don’t win, we have given our best effort. In the end even in the show ring, your success is dependent upon the goals and plans you make. Next Issue I will go into further detail about feeding, holding and maximizing your project for the end point.

If you were to take a straw poll of most all exhibitors they would be in consensus that they want to win, most of them all the time but the competitive spirit of the competitions drives them to that winning attitude. The critical part once again is, what do you want to win, which leads me to selection. Let’s start out with steers, most steers are fed or shown to reach an end point which is very different than heifers. A majority of steers are selected for extremes and thus many times doomed to fail in the end, they are huge ended, freak necked, real pretty etc and many times win jackpot shows. In the end, it’s usually those steers that exhibited the traits of a good market steer that win the county or state fairs. Those traits would include sound on all 4 feet, level top and hip, average to above average muscle, balanced, eye appealing and last a soft middle that appears to be an easy feeding animal. Usually, those freak steers win young as they are extreme in their type and generally those later described steers are 3rd – 5th in the jackpot shows. When it comes summer time or later in their life, those good old 3rd place steers look the part and generally win shows. The difference, as I like to put it, is those later winning steers had the right parts they just needed time and management. Thus it goes back to my point as to what your goals are, win young or win in the end. I don’t want to put a bad spin on Cal Poly’s Western Bonanza or Wendy Hall as she is a remarkable lady but in all the years of the Western Bonanza steer show

By Brooke Bennett - Director of Communication, North American Limousin Foundation

to gain real world experiences, build life-long friendships and make memories that will last a lifetime all while competing in the show ring against the best livestock in the country. And, if you ask around, a lot of families will consider their trip to junior nationals to not only be a family vacation, but also the perfect opportunity to bond while traveling the country.

Growing up a majority of my free time was spent attending livestock shows and spending quality time in the show barn. Over my nearly 20 years of show experience I have had the opportunity to attend livestock shows from coast-to-coast and have experienced the excitement of the champion handshake and the disappointment of being defeated in class. Since my past experiences have helped to get me where I am today, I am proud to consider myself a product of junior programs.

I can remember spending a solid three weeks in the summer with my family, cramped in the truck driving sometimes clear across the country to attend the National Junior Shorthorn Show. During these long drives it was the opportune time to bond as a family and try to sort out the world’s problems. It definitely wasn’t always roses though, there would be times it would take everything in our power to play nice with one another once we’d spent 18 or more hours together, listening to books on tape (typically the narrator had some awful accent, at least in my opinion), trying to find a radio station that satisfied everyone and constantly battling over the appropriate temperature to set the air conditioning. Regardless of minor annoyances that would take place during these drives, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I credit my years of being involved in the various junior livestock programs for where I have ended up today in my professional life. Without having traveled the country attending shows at the county, state and national level, I never would have had the opportunities to make the connections I have made over the past 20 years and most likely I wouldn’t have the job I have today, which is serving as the director of communications for the North American Limousin Foundation.

Unlike the rush of a county fair where the main focus for exhibitors is showing their livestock and making it to sale day for payday, there are more opportunities for junior exhibitors to gain experiences that they would not achieve otherwise at your typical livestock show when attending a junior national. During this week participants have the opportunity to sharpen their public speaking skills in speech contests, learn to achieve the ultimate power of persuasion in salesmanship competitions, try their hand at photography, enhance cooking skills in cook-offs, test their creativity in advertisement and poster contests, and build the necessary skills needed to be successful in an interview.

With my position I get to travel the country and attend shows all across the nation…and much to my parent’s delight, I get paid to do it! This time though, things are different. I’m getting to view these shows from a whole new perspective. I am now no longer the participant, but the insider working to ensure these events run smoothly. This summer for work I traveled to regional shows, state fairs and my personal favorite, junior national shows. Attending a junior national, regardless of the species you exhibit, is a one of a kind event that you will never experience at your run of the mill jackpot or county fair. That being said, I am not discounting the importance of county fair experiences, but junior national shows are on a whole different level. This is an action-packed week where exhibitors have the opportunity

All of these skills participants can hone during these contests can be Continued on Page 60

Stepping Up for the Future of Angus

A California couple honored for commitment to Angus youth as 2012 Honorary Angus Foundation inductees.

to being event hosts, the Colemans have shown dedication to the breed by attending numerous other fundraising occasions throughout the years. 

Jim and Sue Coleman of Vintage Angus Ranch, Modesto, Calif., are dedicated to seeing the Angus breed grow.  This dedication can be seen through their generous support of Angus youth and the Angus Foundation.  The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) honored the couple’s commitment by inducting them into the Honorary Angus Foundation.

And, the couple donates more than just funds.  Jim served as a co-chair of the Leadership Cabinet for the Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus.  In this role, he gave of his time in reviewing donor prospects, suggesting new donors and overseeing the use of Foundation dollars.  “This level of commitment to Angus is inspiring,” Grimes says. “It sets an example for juniors to give back in the future.”

The Colemans were recognized July 20 at the 2012 National Junior Angus Show in Louisville, Ky.  Each year, the NJAA selects inductees based on the dedication to Angus youth and support of the junior program. 

The NJAA began the Honorary Angus Foundation in 1985 to recognize and thank those who have shown extraordinary interest and support for young members of the American Angus Association®.  Seven Angus breeders were honored as the first inductees, and each year the NJAA inducts breed supporters or entities.

“Jim and Sue have provided extensive support for juniors through the Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus,” says NJAA Foundation Director, Lindsey Grimes of Hillsboro, Ohio.  “By stepping up and taking an active role in the Foundation, they are providing a bright future for Angus youth.”

Any member of the American Angus Association is eligible to nominate individuals or organizations for the Honorary Angus Foundation.  Visit www.angus.org to learn more or to nominate next year’s Honorary Angus Foundation inductees.

In 2006, the Colemans hosted “Magic of the Vine” an event to support the Angus Foundation’s Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus.  This event raised more than $197,000 for youth, education and research.  In addition

used as building blocks down the road and it will help participants set themselves apart from their peers in the long run. At no other event held across the country do exhibitors have the opportunity to practice these professional life skills and receive constructive feedback. Little do most participants realize that these skills will come in handy down the road, especially once they start preparing themselves for their professional life.

Country: Australia Unlike in the United States where exhibitors raise their animals and show individually, it is done as teamwork in Australia. Schools will buy several animals for students and they work as a team to prepare the animals for shows.

Junior national shows are also prime events to start networking with industry leaders who are involved in your breed or species, as well as other aspects of real life agriculture. It is never too soon to start networking and young people need to understand that sometimes it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Although these networking connections may not seem as important today to junior showmen, once they start applying for colleges, internships and jobs, these will be good people to go to for advice, letters of recommendations and references.

In Australia all major steer shows are terminal and cattle are evaluated both live and virtually. Before entering the ring to be judged, all animals are scanned for rib and rump fat, and eye muscle measurements are taken and made available to the judge prior to the animals entering the ring. Fitting is often limited as not many people fit legs, firstly because of the lack of hair and secondly, judges don’t mind lighter bones animals to increase yield. Hair is actually discouraged in Australia because too much hair causes big losses of production in hot climates - heat stress, not going in calf, attracting cattle ticks.

As summer is coming to a close and we are now starting to move away from junior national shows, county fairs and state fairs, and starting to move into the major national shows that take place in the fall. Make plans for next summer to attend a junior national show. Even if you aren’t exhibiting livestock at these shows, you can still participate in the events that are offered and can gain these one of a kind experiences that you will never experience at any jackpot show, state fair or county fair. Get involved, participate, and invest in your newly acquired skills for your future.

Once live judging is completed, the steers are slaughtered and judged against the shows set specifications and then each animal receives a score out of 100 determining their suitability. This is a very non-bias and non-subjective competition and is often more prestigious to win.

Youth Enjoy Opportunity to Learn About Genomic Tools, Genetic Improvement at Conference process. It’s amazing all the knowledge we can now gather from one little hair follicle.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — ­­­ An educational conference for youth on genomic and genetic improvement tools was held June 23-26 in Nebraska. The conference was titled the Young Leaders Conference at the 2012 National Program for Genetic Improvement of Feed Efficiency in Beef Cattle and the Weight Trait Project, and it was designed for young beef industry leaders. Two representatives from the Hereford breed –Lauren Schiermiester, Buffalo, Wyo., and Bridget Beran, Claflin, Kan. – were invited to attend.

The rest of the conference was held at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (US-MARC) at Clay Center. Attendees learned about markerassisted expected progeny differences (EPDs), reduced cost genotyping strategies, SNP panels, MBV (molecular breeding value) accuracy, efficacy of HD (high density) panel, deletion impacting fertility and genomics relating to feed efficiency.

The event was hosted by University of Nebraska at Lincoln Animal Science Department Professor and Extension Specialist Matt Spangler along with Kansas State University Animal Science Professor and Extension Specialist Bob Weaber.

Schiermiester said, “I learned just how important genomics will be in the future of animal breeding and how far we have come regarding the molecular research and data.  Genomics and upcoming DNA technologies will play a role in selection and breed improvement and also increase accuracies of EPDs within the livestock industry.”

Weaber explained the conference’s purpose was to “provide educational programming to young leaders from U.S. breeds on the improvement of feed efficiency and use of genomic tools for selection of beef cattle. Also to provide opportunities for the young leaders to interact with project collaborating producers, project and USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) scientists and allied industry personnel.”

The educational programs were presented by leading academia and professionals in the genomics field. Beran said, “We had the opportunity to speak with and get to know genomic professors and researchers from around the country. I had several people ask me to keep them in mind for graduate school, never mind that I will only be a freshman. It was a fantastic networking opportunity.”

The three-day conference kicked off with a University of Nebraska at Lincoln animal science department tour followed by a tour of the GeneSeek Inc. labs in Lincoln.

The conference wrapped up with a tour of the US-MARC complex, which Beran described as “a sprawling facility where they conduct research projects while still maintaining production. It was amazing to see the expanse of the facility.”

Beran said this last tour was especially exciting for her because GeneSeek Inc. is the new DNA lab for the American Hereford Association. “We were given an in-depth tour and explanation of the DNA collection and testing

Drought and Heat Not the Only Threats to Farmers Lack of Awareness and Planning for Sweeping Tax Changes Puts the Farm at Risk If the combination of extreme drought and historically hot temperatures isn’t giving farmers enough to worry about this summer, sweeping changes to the federal wealth transfer tax system are looming large.  Yet, many family farmers are not aware of the full implications of these possible changes – including losing their farms.

of that value will be taxed at a rate of 35 percent. Unless Congress acts, that estate tax exemption will fall from $5.12 million to $1 million effective January 1, 2013, and the tax will rise from 35 percent to 55 percent. That means, for example, a $5.12 million transfer would incur no taxes in 2012, but $2,266,000 in taxes in 2013 and beyond.

“Few farmers fully understand there is a limit to the amount of wealth that can be transferred from generation to generation, and those who don’t take advantage of the current tax environment could be forced to sell their land to pay the estate taxes on that very land,” says Milwaukee-based estate planning attorney Eido Walny.  “Since the IRS does not differentiate between wealth held in the form of cash versus land, equipment, or other forms, a farmer with a $2 million farm is treated the same as a Wall Street banker with $2 million cash in the bank.”

Because estate taxes must be paid within nine months of a person’s death, often survivors are forced to sell assets or property for significantly less than full market value in a scramble to pay those taxes.  The solution, says Walny, is to take advantage of the window of opportunity between now and the end of the year to develop a solid succession plan regardless of what federal changes might be at hand.  “A great option for many family farmers is to implement a trust -- or series of trusts -- to which the farm can be transferred,” Walny says. “A trust can address issues of income and land control, as well as offer asset protection benefits that are not available when people simply make outright gifts of their land. And, perhaps most importantly, a well-drafted trust can protect the farm from exposure to estate taxes for many generations to come.”

According to the USDA, about 98 percent of all farms in the United States are family farms and about 70 percent of the nation’s farmland will change hands in the next two decades. Yet, 89percent of farmers don’t have a farm succession plan.  Of immediate concern, Walny says, is the possibility that the federal wealth transfer tax system may reset to 2001 levels ending a historic opportunity for family farmers to do appropriate succession planning.

Because of the complex nature and number of documents and transactions necessary to establish an appropriate trust -- and with possible sweeping changes coming to the federal wealth transfer tax system -- Walny urges family farmers to act now to begin the succession planning process. 

Under current law, each individual has a $5.12 million federal estate tax exemption, meaning that up to $5.12 million worth of assets can be passed to heirs free of estate tax.  Anything in excess

Angus Juniors Encouraged to Participate in The Scoop Association®, says often junior members might have a difficult time fully understanding articles written by agricultural industry experts, but in having other juniors write about important topics industry, they are able to understand what adult Angus breeders are talking about.

The project allows National Junior Angus Association members to gain real-world experience through the development of a publication for junior members, by junior members. The National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) and Angus Foundation are pleased to again provide NJAA members who have completed the ninth grade with an opportunity to gain experience in the areas of communication, business, writing and photography. This year marks the fifth year for The Scoop, an annual electronic publication produced by NJAA members, who work as a team to create stories and artwork with the help of top communication professionals.

“By participating in The Scoop, juniors are able to learn more about the NJAA and interact closely with fellow junior staff members of a similar age,” Ruff says. “If juniors have an interest in photography, communications, marketing, advertising or public relations, I encourage them to sign up for The Scoop experience and learn more about working in a real-world communications setting, while helping tell the stories that make the NJAA and NJAS so great.”

In addition to gaining experience, The Scoop provides networking opportunities between other juniors and industry leaders. After participating on The Scoop staff, hopefully junior members will be prepared to pursue majors and careers in photography, communications, marketing, advertising or public relations.

The application is available online at www.njaa.info or www.angusfoundation.org. Applications should be postmarked by June 25, 2012, or sent electronically to Katie Allen, Angus Foundation Marketing and Public Relations Assistant, at 3201 Frederick Ave., St. Joseph, MO 64506 or kallen@angusfoundation.org. Juniors who apply will be notified of their status on the staff prior to the NJAS.

Junior members who participate in The Scoop often conduct interviews and write stories about events at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) or other topics in the beef industry. For those who prefer the artistic side of the publication, there are opportunities to assist with contributing photos or artwork, as well as assisting with the layout. The Scoop staff meets at 2 p.m. Monday through Friday during the 2012 NJAS in Louisville, Ky., but the opportunity is also available to members who do not plan to attend the show.

The Scoop is produced courtesy of the NJAA, which currently has more than 6,000 members, and Angus Foundation. The completed publication will be released on the NJAA website in the fall.
