from the

editor Spring is flying by and summer is just around the bend. Here in my corner of the world, we have alternated between cold days and hot days with no rhyme or reason. It seems the weather can’t quite decide what to do. I wish it had decided to send lots more rain our way, but that’s not going to happen now and the grasses covering the hills outside my window are beginning to turn from green to summer brown. I enjoy the sun and warmth though and all the activities that sunshine and summer bring.

P.O. Box 41430 • San Jose, CA 95160 (408) 776-7611 • Fax (408) 776-9811 Publisher & Managing Editor: Heidi Beljean — (408) 888-2503

This time of year also signals the beginning of the county fair season. Many of you have had your animals for months now, and are getting closer to the culmination of your project. In addition to all the hard work you have put in each day to raise, feed and train those critters in the barn, it is important to take time to plan for your actual fair experience. Now is a good time to sit down with your family to figure out your game plan. Planning ahead will make everything go smoothly – from preparing your animals and equipment to determining how you will get to the fair, where you will stay, meals, show clothes – the list is long, so you should make one (a list-that is!). Another thing to take into consideration is expenses. Especially these days with the economy in a crunch, everyone is feeling the pinch and figuring out ways to make things work. Working together is a great way to do this. Talk to your family, 4-H club, or FFA chapter, to coordinate meals, transportation, and chores. Meal nights can be planned to feed your group, everyone can chip in some money for breakfast so there are muffins, donuts, snack bars, and drinks available. Get inspired to come up with ways to save money and time. Maybe you can share a hotel room, or let others stay at your house. If you have a motor home or travel trailer, see if you can take that to your show to stay in. Carpooling to the shows each morning is a good way to help everyone out. Have fun as a group and your whole fair experience will be a better one. Don’t forget to cheer on your friends/competitors to victory. Help each other and learn from each other.

A World View of Livestock Diseases on its territory. The OIE then disseminates the information to other countries, which can take the necessary preventive action. This information also includes diseases transmissible to humans and intentional introduction of pathogens. Information is sent out immediately or periodically depending on the seriousness of the disease.

By HJ Hamlen, DVM, MS, DACVPM Introduction: It is said that, “strong fences make good neighbors”. This is especially true when it comes to important livestock diseases. If you had a serious disease problem in your herd or flock, would you sell those diseased animals to your neighbor? If you knowingly did so, how would the sale affect your reputation and credibility? Once word got out about your actions, would anyone buy an animal from you again? These ethical questions are important at the individual producer level, and also at the state, country and international level.

2. Scientific information -Collect, analyze and disseminate veterinary scientific information The OIE collects and analyses the latest scientific information on animal disease control. This information is then made available to the Member Countries to help them to improve the methods used to control and eradicate these diseases. Guidelines are prepared by the network of about 200 OIE Collaborating Centers and Reference Laboratories across the world. 

As bovine tuberculosis has been detected in several states, many producers are faced with new testing and movement regulations put in place by the government to assure that the disease is contained in an area and hopefully, eradicated. Every producer wants to cooperate with the state and federal animal health officials who are working hard to detect and eliminate disease. Cooperation is in the best interest of the entire livestock industry.

3. International solidarity -Encourage international solidarity in the control of animal diseases The OIE provides technical support to Member Countries requesting assistance with animal disease control and eradication operations, including diseases transmissible to humans. The OIE notably offers expertise to the poorest countries to help them control animal diseases that cause livestock losses, present a risk to public health and threaten other Member Countries.

I was recently asked by our editor, Heidi Beljean, “If we are having these problems (with bovine tuberculosis) what is going on in other countries”? Rest assured that the tireless efforts to control livestock disease are not limited to you, your state, or to the United States. There are countless organizations full of people who are dedicated to fighting the spread of animal diseases and protecting global animal health.

4. Sanitary safety -Safeguard world trade by publishing health standards for international trade in animals and animal products

One such organization is the World Organization for Animal Health, formerly called the Office International des Epizooties (OIE). The OIE started in 1920 after an outbreak of a devastating livestock disease (Rinderpest) started in Belgium. The outbreak started after zebu cattle, coming from India and destined for Brazil, came through a Belgium port and carried the disease with them. What started out as 24 countries getting together to standardize animal disease reporting and prevent disease spread has now grown to an organization with 173 member countries and agreements with 36 other regional and international organizations.

The OIE develops documents that Member Countries can use to protect themselves from the introduction of diseases and pathogens. 5. Promotion of veterinary services -Improve the legal framework and resources of national veterinary services The Veterinary Services and laboratories of developing and transition countries are in urgent need of support to provide them with the necessary infrastructure, resources and capacities that will enable their countries to benefit more fully from world trade while at the same time providing greater protection for animal and public health and reducing the threat for other countries which are free of diseases.

The OIE objectives: 1. Transparency - Ensure transparency in the global animal disease situation

6. Food safety and animal welfare -To promote food safety and animal welfare through a science-based approach

• the website of your state agricultural department

The OIE’s standard-setting activities in this field focus on eliminating potential hazards existing prior to the slaughter of animals or the primary processing of their products (meat, milk, eggs, etc.) that could be a source of risk for consumers.

• United States Department of Agriculture website (www.usda.gov), • and the OIE website (www.oie.int)

Important Role of Livestock Producer: You may be asking, “with all these countries and organizations involved with global animal health, what role do I have?” If you think about it, the responsibility for animal health around the world rests with the individual producer. The producer needs to follow testing and movement regulations, and notify their veterinarian and/or local or state animal health official if an outbreak of disease affects their animals. You should be aware of the diseases affecting your livestock that are reportable to your state veterinarian. As a producer you may participate in voluntary disease control programs.

Some questions to ponder when you're browsing the web: 1. Use the OIE.int website and go to disease information, then click on "detailed country (ies) disease incidence". Use the pull down menus to look up the status of a specific disease in the species of your choice (for example click on terrestrial, scrapie, United States of America). Using the same disease do this for the US, Canada, and Mexico to compare the three countries.

Livestock Disease Status in the United States: The USDA compiles animal disease reports from the 50 states and posts summaries (www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahss/disease_status.htm) of the status for animal diseases that are reported to the OIE. This information is reported to the OIE every six months and is also presented on the OIE website. You’ll notice that information posted by the USDA or international organizations is not specific as to the state where the disease occurred, and that there is no mention of confidential information such as ranch, farm, or producer names.

2. Use the OIE website as in question 1 to look up the disease status of your choice in one country in Africa, one in Asia, one in South America, and one in the European Union. 3. Go to the OIE website and look under "weekly disease updates". Which country reported the most recent occurrence of foot and mouth disease? Highly pathogenic avian influenza? 4. On the OIE website go to the Disease Information section and click on Disease distribution maps, select terrestrial, bovine tuberculosis.. Analyze the map and identify the only country in the world that has NEVER reported having bovine tuberculosis. HINT: It is BIG AND GREEN.

Conclusion: So next time you are feeling stressed by having your animals tested for tuberculosis to comply with state and federal regulations, remember – global animal health starts with you!

FEED and FUEL

Over $65 billion has been added to the GDP in 2008, and 321 million barrels of oil has been displaced by biofuels. Naturally, the economics of a key demand driver like biofuel production will impact the marginal price of the underlying feedstocks. With high energy price scenarios and associated higher ethanol prices, the biofuel user can contribute to upward price pressure on underlying commodities. In the perfect storm of commodity price explosion from 2006-2008, biofuel demand was just one of many factors influencing commodity prices. While grain and oilseed farmers generally benefitted from increasing prices, the same factors stepped up production costs, and other issues like heightened margin requirements increased the transaction costs incurred for conventional hedging.

By Karol Aure-Flynn

With all the public debate about biofuels, it is difficult to remember the grain and livestock sectors before nearly a third of the U.S. corn crop went into ethanol. While the idea for creating fuels from renewable materials is not new, it was a confluence of factors, not the least of which are political, that allowed the battle cry ‘independence from foreign fossil fuels’ to incubate the renewable fuel industry that we have today. For grain and livestock producers, tracking the trends in the biofuel industry have become a necessary part of business.

For the U.S. livestock industry, higher feed costs have impacted margins of chicken, hog, and cattle feeding, and demand has changed as a result of economic conditions. As a result, we are experiencing a historically significant period of contraction across the species. The basics are this: when feed grain prices go up, the livestock industry suffers. The rapid escalation of feed grain prices from 2006 to 2008 squeezed industry margins and contributed to the bankruptcy of Pilgrim’s Pride. As the biofuel industry changes the demand landscape for grains and oilseeds, the livestock industry is forced to adapt. Where nearly 50% of U.S. corn is consumed through animal feeding, a portion of this has now been replaced with the by-products of biorefineries. In 1999, 2.3 million tonnes of distillers grains (DDGs) were produced as a by-product of ethanol manufacturing. By 2008, U.S. ethanol biorefineries produced nearly 27 million tonnes of feed, 23 million tonnes of DDGs, 3 million tonnes of corn gluten feed, and 600,000 tonnes of corn gluten feed. These feed products replace some of the displaced corn from the feed channels, but prices are driven by substitution and nutritional equivalent. DDGs are currently most suitable for use in the cattle feed ration, and industry is working on improving characteristics for suitability for other species.

The mandated use of renewable fuels in gasoline was established through the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Ethanol demand is also supported by the Federal blender tax credit (which gives refiners a maximum allowable credit for blending biofuels into their final product), various State production subsidies and usage mandates, and trade tariffs. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 followed, establishing minimum share of the total mandate to be met with advanced biofuels (for example, cellulosic material such as perennial grasses and municipal solid waste.) The proverbial cart was built before the horse and an industry emerged rapidly. Corn ethanol is manufactured by 170 plants in 26 states, with capacity approaching 10.5 million gallons per year. Corn used for fuel alcohol production increased from less than one percent of total U.S. domestic corn use in 1980/1981 to almost 25 percent of total corn use in 2007/08. USDA long term projections for U.S. corn show ethanol as the fastest growing share of demand. See figure 1.

Figure 2

Fig. 1 Food price inflation is another consideration when examining the ripple effects of the changing use of U.S. grains. Price increases in underlying commodities decrease margins for producers and/or are transferred to consumers through changes in prices for livestock, dairy, and bakery products. Price impacts are most significant for grain-intensive products like eggs and poultry. Models show for every $1 per bushel increase in the price of corn, consumers can expect 5.5% increase in the Consumer Price index (CPI-food) for eggs, 3.5% increase for poultry, 3.7% increase for beef, and 3.2% increase for pork. Compare this to an aggregated 0.4% expected increase in the price for cereal and bakery associated with every $1 per bushel increase in the price of corn. Renewable fuels will continue to play an important role for agriculture, with far-reaching implications. Biofuels made from agricultural products, corn, oil, or cellulosic, will have major impact in the demand outlook for U.S. crops and thus compete for supply with other major users (livestock). While policy changes can be expected, it is unlikely the political resonance of energy independence will change, especially as economic recovery and oil supply changes is likely to bring higher energy costs.

The two most important determinants for whether the mandates and demand forecasts can be reached are energy prices and the evolution of policy support. Iowa State University recently published a comprehensive Working Paper 09-WP 487 on biofuels that modeled four scenarios and the effects on grain and livestock sectors for low and high energy prices, with differing support, and one scenario eliminating the delivery bottleneck that currently exists because of infrastructure challenges. (The predicament is that biofuels are produced in farming regions and fuels are utilized in urban areas, and the U.S. lacks a highly effective delivery structure.) As a result of the crash in oil prices and demand in late 2008, and residual high cost structure of inputs, the biofuel manufacturing has been plagued by negative returns after capital costs throughout 2009. The much publicized bankruptcy of one of the industry’s biggest players, Verasun, in late 2008 punctuated these industry troubles. Sans policy supports, ethanol becomes a very tough business, in either high or low energy price scenarios. And all signs are that political support continues.

Savvy livestock producers must carefully model the price trends of feed grains and cost of gain. As a continuation of the previous articles on commodity prices and risk management, measure your actual against projected cash flow to determine the performance of your enterprise. Whether you are planning on looking back on your livestock project as a well-informed consumer of U.S. agricultural products, or a knowledgeable professional in food production or agribusiness, don’t forget to keep in mind that sound bytes like “Feed versus Fuel” are usually the tip of an iceberg. Karol Aure-Flynn The premier bank to the global food and agriculture industry, Rabobank is a global financial services leader providing institutional and retail banking and agricultural finance solutions in key markets around the world. Rabobank is a leading financial partner to the entire American food and agribusiness industry, and also provides retail and commercial banking services in California. Karol Aure-Flynn covers the US grains and oilseeds sector for Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory.

Despite the challenges, Rabobank sees biofuel industry as a solid player in the future for agricultural products and U.S. energy independence. Market dynamics are forcing plants to higher conversion rates for feedstock, better energy efficiency, and more innovation for co-products such as food grade corn oil, distillers grains, and variety of other revenue generating products. In addition, the U.S. Renewable Fuels Association notes that over 400,000 jobs have been created through ongoing production, construction, and R& D.

Marketing 101

large group of grown-ups, but they really do like kids. It’s a great opportunity to hand out brochures and network with individuals. Let them know of all the ways they can participate: as a club or as individual buyers. Perhaps the organization could use their auction purchase for a fundraising raffle.

by Kathleen Wood Vieira You’ve made it through the rigors of your county fair. Did pretty well, too. Third in your class, fourth in showmanship. Now, festooned with your ribbons, you’re standing in the auction line, planning how to spend that huge check you’ll soon have in your hands.

Make some business cards with your name and club name. Spice them up with a picture of you and your project. Pass them around.

The Personal Appearance I interviewed a local car dealer, who is one of the largest buyers at our county fair. The way to make his list? Come down to the dealership and personally hand him a letter. This man is a professional sales executive and knows the value of personal interaction. He enjoys seeing young livestock exhibitors step up to the plate with project promotion. He likes the chance to quiz potential recipients to see if they are indeed doing their own work.

It’s your turn; you enter the auction ring and brace your lamb (or set up your steer, turn your hog, pose your goat, etc.) and smile. Based on those great bids you just heard while waiting in line, you mentally spend that check. But wait, the auctioneer struggles to get a bid; you smile wider and try to set your animal up more correctly, but the ringman furiously motions for you to get the heck out of the ring. You move out and realize that your project received only one minimum bid. What happened? Couldn’t the buyers see how great your project was? “I was third in my class,” you want to shout!

You wouldn’t dream of entering the showring without your animal being impeccably groomed. Before your personal appearance, do the same for yourself. Neatly combed hair, clean faces and tidy clothing are a must, plus, wearing the uniform of your organization will make that all-important first impression. Don’t forget your hand-out materials.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, those great prices you heard are going to those who have done their homework; those who have promoted themselves and their project way before they enter that long auction line.

Make it Easy for Your Buyers

Here are a few tips to help you sell successfully:

If they will be putting your project in their freezer, make a list of processing facilities in your area. Contact your local processor early and plan a great field trip for your club. You can learn what types of cuts are available. He will be able to tell you how much your buyer can expect to actually be putting in his freezer. You will be gaining a great deal of knowledge about the importance of visual versus on-the-rail judging.

Know What You are Selling. You have a product to sell. Know what it is. A market animal is destined for meat, so make sure that you have fed and cared for it properly and you can honestly say, it’s the best product available. But, realize that your buyers can go to the local supermarket and purchase a comparable package of chops or choose a roast for a fraction of the cost they will be paying if they buy your animal at the junior livestock auction. They may be paying ten times as much as the current market value!

Does your fair have a “buy back” system? Some buyers prefer to have the option of selling the animal back for market price and paying the difference. Does your fair allow “add-ons”? Make sure you understand these systems and pass this info along.

So why do they do it? The meat is better, right? Get real, not that much. Auction buyers are interested in you; in your project; in your future plans. They know that you junior livestock producers are a hard-working bunch and they are willing to pay those premiums to help you along.

Work for the Larger Picture If you have a potential buyer who does not have the resources or desire to purchase an entire animal, see if your fair has an organization that pools money from individuals or businesses. Pass this information along to your buyers and remember to let the fair organization know that you are helping out.

Start Early Find a list of the previous buyers. Are there people on that list that you know? Are there places where you have had business dealings: supermarkets, service stations, feed stores, retailers, the orthodontist? If your family is a customer or client, let them know.

How about organizing a booster club for your club or chapter that will bid on club animals? Put up flyers about the sale; try for interviews with the local media, including radio, TV and newspapers to get the word out. Develop a club website (under adult supervision) with links to your fair for more information.

See what promotional resources are available. Does your county fair or auction committee have a brochure which explains the junior livestock auction? Ask what perks are offered to buyers, i.e., free admission, parking, lunch, etc. Be ready to tell your potential buyer how to access those things.

What to do with All That Meat?

Let him know of the date, starting time and the order of the sale. If preregistration is required, send that information along. Pre-stamped envelope might be appreciated.

Now that your buyer has made the purchase, what will he do with all that prize-winning meat? Let them know they can: Enjoy it!

Make Marketing a Group Project

Use it for promotional activities. How about a package of meat with each new car? Hold a BBQ for customer appreciation. Pass out the meat to hardworking employees.

Take photos at the beginning of your project. Be sure your smiling face is included. Brainstorm ideas for securing new buyers and retaining current buyers. Create a brochure about your group. Include brief information on each member and the activities of your club or chapter. Tell how your group contributes to the community.

Donate it to a food bank. Raffle it off to raise funds for their organization.

Finish Your Homework A hastily scribbled, mistake-laden letter, just because you had to hand one in to get your check, is a poor idea indeed.

Make sure you have an outstanding barn exhibit at the fair. Not only should you have some killer educational exhibits, you need to make sure people can see who is in the group. Pictures really are worth a thousand words. If you have gotten the message out about your project and club, buyers will be looking for you. Make your projects pop out at them.

Be sure your thank-you letter is prompt and sincere and make your letter stand-out from the rest. Prepare your thoughts beforehand and create an opportunity to secure repeat buyers. In addition to expressing your appreciation, reiterate the facts from your promotional letter, including the satisfaction of completing your project, how the money will help your future projects and plans, etc.

Make Marketing an Individual Project Use those pictures you took of your project, along with a letter, indicating your club affiliation, a little information about the project that you will be offering for sale, your activities at school, church and the community. Include some of your long-range goals. Keep it upbeat and brief. Be sure to include the date and time of the auction and any pertinent information. If you have a brochure, include that.

Try some thank-you ads in the local paper, or on the local television or radio station. If the sale was on a national and state level, try a trade paper. Businesses love free advertising. (Be sure you spell names correctly). By pooling a few dollars from each member, you can get your and your buyers’ names in the news.

Make Use of Service Organizations

I always told my 4-H kids that there were three ways to win at the county fair. You could win your market class, you could win in showmanship or you could win in the sales ring. With hard work and attention to detail, you can have a grand slam at this year’s fair.

Kiwanis, Lions Clubs, Optimists, Chambers of Commerce, etc., these groups are full of a wide variety of local business people. They always enjoy having young people speak. Sure, it can be a scary experience, speaking before a

Bio-security Can Help Pigs Perform By Rachelle Bailey

Most hog populations are exposed to each other at shows, sales and auction yards. While these are a great source to purchase new livestock one must take caution when bringing them home. A separate site or barn away from the existing herd is very important. The new animals should be monitored closely for the next 30 to 60 days. Blood tests can also be utilized to check any virus activity in the herd. Having two sets of clothing Plastic boots are great to and shoes for each site is recomutilize on the farm. mended. It is always important to start the new animals on the existing vaccination program to get the entire herd on the same immunity level. Always ask the breeder what they vaccinate for and what their current health status is.

Bio-security is the protection from biological harm: the protection of the economy, environment, and health of living things from diseases, pests, and bioterrorism. This definition can be looked at in many different ways but as livestock producers we talk about bio-security everyday. As pork producers we face bio-security issues on a daily basis. In modern pork production, animals are housed in environmentally controlled buildings. Modern facilities provide a comfortable environment to the pig at all stages of production. These facilities are a great tool to use however because pigs are raised in isolated groups the herd can have different immunities which can spread viruses to other herds. Remember when we were all little kids? When we started school we were all exposed to other kids. We would go to school and pickup a "bug" and bring it home to the family. Before you know it the entire family would get sick. This is the same for pigs. Because immunities are different in each herd, pigs that are exposed from other herds can get sick as well.

Signs should be posted around the farm warning outside traffic that the farm is a bio-secure facility. Fencing around the farm is another good management A good bio-secure building is fenced from outside step that can traffic. Proper rodent and bird management is essential for any size and scope of operation. be taken to limit outside traffic from coming in. Rodent management is another step to be taken because rats and mice can travel to different parts of the farm. Trucks and trailers should be cleaned and disinfected when exposed to different animals, along with all equipment used at livestock shows. Proper records should be taken in maintaining a good health status.

We need to protect animals from diseases and pests. Many producers depend upon selling show pigs, breeding stock and pork so a good bio-security management program is needed on every level of production. As pork producers we all need our hogs to perform. Performance is key and without a healthy herd, hogs won't perform. Whether it's the show pig that needs to make market weight or the new breeding gilt that needs to get bred, all herds need to have biosecurity management. Because livestock shows, sales and events are crucial to the show industry, animals from different herds are exposed to each other. Just because animals from different herds are exposed to each other doesn't mean they get sick — but in some cases they can, and we need to prevent this and keep our animals healthy. Most people would think that animals being exposed to each other would be the only way to expose pigs to different viruses. But people can be the carriers as well, it is certainly a risk bringing people onto the farm, however as a breeder who sells show pigs we many visitors on our farm each year. We have to follow a very strict bio-security program. On our farm we have guidelines, or as we call them, standard operating procedures (SOPs). Good Bio-security Management Practices

Whether it's a fence around your farm, a change of clothes, providing plastic boots or foot baths, a bio-security plan should be implemented on every farm. As pork producers we work hard to provide a safe and healthy product to our consumers. Our job is to feed the world, and we can do this by raising healthy animals that perform.

When visitors come to the farm it is very important to have them either put on a pair of plastic disposable boots or dip their shoes in a disinfectant. Manure from a shoe can play a huge role in exposing the herd. Make sure their clothing is clean before they enter your site.

ring? One of the biggest changes is the reduction of fat on a goat’s carcass. This change in fat thickness is one of the big reasons that the body cavity of our modern wethers looks very different than the original Boer goat. It is important to understand that goats fatten differently compared to all other species of livestock. Because of the original selection pressure and the survivability characteristics of the original Boer goat, goats fatten from the inside-out, while all other livestock fattens from front to rear and top to bottom. This unique fattening method results in deeper bodied, “soggier” middle goats especially as they mature and get heavier. Although a goat may still be acceptable in terms of external fat, many goats develop that extremely deep, “puss-gutted” look due to the levels of internal fat on the goat.

By Terry L. Burks I recently attended a rather large market goat show in the southeast. Although this show was not on the scale of some of the Texas majors, there was still over 500 goats participating. The judge was a well known, prominent market goat judge and, I might add, did a fabulous job sorting the show. The issue that arose was that his champion was an extremely shallow, tubular, “hot dog” type goat and his reserve was a very deep, soggy middled, “puss gut” type. I am not saying that either type is bad, but it does become difficult to explain to spectators and participants of a show that, if one style is correct, is the other style then NOT correct?

I have had the opportunity to do considerable research on goats and goat carcasses. My research has found that when a goat exceeds one tenth of an inch of back fat, the level of KPH (kidney, pelvic and heart) fat often exceeds 6-7 percent and ranges as high as 10 to 12 percent. We must realize that a goat dresses about 45 percent and then we may have as much as 10 to 12 percent KPH fat; with bone, trim and cooler loss, this does not leave a very high yielding carcass. As this simple fact clearly shows, fat goats are a huge problem we must address in our industry! Imagine drawing a line from the elbow of your goat to its rear flank. Anything that extends below that imaginary line is FAT. This simple illustration explains the potential problem with extremely deep-bodied goats.

The issue of body style has long been a “bone” of contention within the goat industry. I recently had a long discussion with a good friend about the pros and cons related to this variation in body type. Her question to me was “why have we changed to the more extreme style as opposed to the deeper, bulkier appearing goat that was developed in South Africa?” Goats that are more “old-school” in their body type are typically deeper and bigger middled. The “new type” goats are much shallower and more tubular in their body shape. By no means is one style especially more acceptable than the other but fans of each style firmly believe their kind is the correct choice! One answer that addresses these variations in type is that when we brought the original goats over from South Africa we immediately began to “Americanize” them. In the wether world, this change resulted in us making them much leaner, thinner hided, firmer handling, more radical fronted and obviously much trimmer middled. This change of type is even greater in the breeding goat world as we have made them thinner hided, tighter skinned, taller fronted, more extreme patterned and then attempted to make the most extreme change--making them two-teated.

Likewise the extremely shallow, “hot dog” type goats pose similar issues. Goats are truly a three-dimensional animal. When we make them extremely shallow we also flatten the rib cage and as a result make the goat narrow based. Goats that are designed in this fashion almost NEVER have enough power to be competitive. Although these goats are generally much leaner from an internal fat standpoint, they almost never have enough width of base or dimension. This lack of width of base always results in narrow, light muscled goats that simply do not have enough muscle to be extremely competitive in the showring. Likewise on these goats, if we draw that imaginary line, we typically find that, although little extends below the line, these goats are deeper through their chests than they are through their rear flanks and as a result are proportionally unbalanced. Many of these goats are so tight flanked and shallow that they are simply poor converters from an efficiency standpoint and have very little “real-world” use in the industry. The more logical body style would be one in which we achieve a happy medium between the two extremes. Goats need to have enough depth of body to have adequate power and mass yet not so much that the body has excess internal fat allowing the body to extend below that imaginary line we have discussed.

Although we have changed the style of many of our goats today, we need to look at why and how Boer goats were originally developed. The Boer was originally developed to survive in very harsh, desert type conditions. Thus they are naturally fatter, bigger bodied and thicker hided to survive in that type of environment. So, why have we changed the type of goats in the U.S. and especially the type of wethers that are winning in the show-

The most important criteria to evaluate with respect to body type is rib shape. Goats must have a round, curved shape to their rib cage. Probably a more accurate rib description would be an “egg” or oval shape. Realize that this rounder, more oval shape is the foundation on which the rack muscle lies. I often describe this difference in rib shape by comparing a catfish to a bluegill. Catfish are round in terms of body shape whereas a bluegill is totally flat. That same carcass research we discussed earlier found that goats with this rounder rib shape had larger loin eye areas and the appearance of much more muscle expression through their rack and top. Flat ribbed goats had smaller, lighter racks and loins and again were flatter and more “kidney-bean” shaped through their loins. This research clearly proves that muscle expression through the rack and likewise the loin is a direct result of this variation in rib shape.

Considerable variation exists in our wether goats with respect to body types and styles and finding that happy medium is the correct approach. Most importantly, rib shape is the key to winning the purple banner!

Survive shipping stress with a solid nutrition program Stressed animals that arrive to the fair grounds can be more vulnerable to respiratory and enteric disease, especially if their previous home had a poor nutritional program.

By Jim Heavens, US Feeds Remember your first day of school as a child? Your parents placed you on the school bus with other kids your age that you did not know and shipped you off to a brand new place with rules, books and teachers. You probably felt a little scared and jittery, and most likely a little stressed.

There are steps you can take to make the transition easier and less stressful for your animal. Creep feed a scientifically-formulated ration to the calves. Avoid shipment during weather extremes. Avoid feeding wet byproducts when the show animals are moved. Give an approved medication or medication combination at the highest legal level per label claim after and/or before shipment. Supply as much clean, bright hay as possible on arrival, especially in cold weather. Increase the energy density of the ration slowly.

Now imagine how show animals must feel with the tremendous stress placed on them during the transition from the ranch to fair grounds. During a period of one day they are placed in a completely different environment with different food, water and social structure. This can cause stress to the animal and take money out of your pocket. Many major problems such as the occurrence of disease, death loss, and poor performance of show animals are associated with the shipping event.

Some medications are thought to stimulate the immune system. If adequate trace minerals are not present or absorbable at this point, this response cannot occur.

An animal under shipping stress will exhibit symptoms such as: A lack of appetite Very loose manure or a very dry small volume of manure Drooping cold ears “Gaunt” look or no fill General lethargy and head down Shivering during cold weather Mucous hanging from the nose Coughing Excess mud/manure on hair Blood in manure Kicking at the belly (hardware or calculi)

You need to make sure the immune system is ready to do its job quickly and ready for the move. US Feeds recommends that 30 percent of the zinc, copper, manganese and cobalt come from the highly available Bioplex® minerals from Alltech®. Experience has shown that this small investment can yield subtle yet substantial results in stressed show animals. Bioplex trace minerals are necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system of the animal. By maximizing the mineral status of your animals and getting your animal to eat well, you are well on your way to a successful feeding period.

Not every animal shipped will demonstrate signs of shipping stress immediately after a move. Generally, larger animals have less tension. For example, a 250-pound calf would make a trip easier than a 185-pound calf and a 550-pounder easier than a 450 pound animal. Weather can also play a part in causing strain. Show animals can become more susceptible to stress during very cold weather, wet weather where show animals can slip on wet surfaces and during extreme heat.

April/May 2009

The next time you take your show animal to the fair grounds, consider their level of anxieties and yours. Do they seem a little jittery and nervous? Are they displaying any signs of shipping stress? Through good management and sound nutritional programs, you can minimize the animals stress level and keep your investment performing at their peak.

Going, Going, Going

Natural!

Delivering natural performance used to seem like an auction. Everyone had something to sell and the price kept going up. Traditionally, natural was synonymous with expensive and unreliable. Well, not anymore. Investing millions of dollars in research - at 75 universities and institutes in 2006 alone - Alltech has proven that natural can mean better, reliable and cost-effective, consistently. In fact, our research team has achieved 160 funded university and research institute trials and received over $3 Million in grant support globally. As the world goes natural, it is understandable why the feed industry is turning towards Alltech. Today 24 out of the top 25 feed companies of the world have concluded that Alltech is the partner of choice when it comes to achieving natural performance. Go with the leaders.

AABP Partners with Pfizer Animal Health in New Scholarship Program for Veterinary Students The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international association of veterinarians organized to enhance the professional lives of its members through relevant continuing education that will improve the well-being of cattle and the economic success of their owners, increase awareness and promote leadership for issues critical to cattle industries, and improve opportunities for careers in bovine medicine.

Investing in the future of the large animal veterinary profession, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) and Pfizer Animal Health announce the launch of the AABP Foundation-Pfizer Animal Health Scholarship, aimed toward providing veterinary students with the opportunity to receive one of several scholarships. “These scholarships, which come at a time when the large animal veterinarian industry is experiencing a shortage, will help recruit outstanding students for careers in bovine veterinary medicine,” said Gatz Riddell, DVM, and executive vice president for AABP.

Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), the world’s largest research-based pharmaceutical company, is a world leader in discovering and developing innovative animal vaccines and prescription medicines. Pfizer Animal Health is dedicated to improving the safety, quality and productivity of the world’s food supply by enhancing the health of livestock and poultry; and in helping companion animals live longer and healthier lives. For additional information on Pfizer Animal Health’s portfolio of animal products, visit www.PfizerAH.com.

“Veterinarians represent an integral role in the cattle industry because they help ensure a safe and wholesome food supply. Exposing the younger generation to large animal medicine becomes such a crucial component in the survivability and success of the profession as well as, the industry,” said Roger Saltman, DVM, director of cattle veterinary operations at Pfizer Animal Health. Offered to third-year veterinary students in the United States, the scholarship program will support students interested in food animal medicine. As part of the scholarship, recipients will receive a travel stipend to the September AABP conference in Omaha, Neb.

Plans Announced for '09 LEAD Conference Young Angus enthusiasts will want to mark their calendars and register early for the 2009 Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference. This year's event, "The Golden Gate to Opportunity" is set for Aug. 6-9 in San Francisco, Calif., and will showcase California's diverse agricultural setting while building leadership and interpersonal skills.

The scholarship application process will be open from April 3 to June 15, 2009, with the electronic application found online at www. aabp.org. Applicants must provide information regarding their cattle industry background and provide answers to several essay questions pertaining to the role of large animal veterinarians in today’s society. Applicants must be students enrolled in colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States and must be in their third year of the veterinary curriculum at the time of application. For more information about the program, email aabphq@aabp.org or call (800) 269-2227.

Partnership Donates Nearly $500,000 to Local FFA Chapters Through a collaboration of 830 veterinarians, animal health suppliers and Pfizer Animal Health, nearly $500,000 has been donated to local FFA chapters across the country. Through purchases of Pfizer Animal Health’s vaccines, veterinarians and animal health suppliers were able to donate to a local FFA chapter of their choice.

“Pfizer Animal Health recognizes the classroom will not only provide valuable information to agricultural educators, but also drive important education at the local level,” explained Fett. “Because of its national and local approach to supporting our chapters, Pfizer Animal Health and its customers have established a very powerful program and become a great FFA partner.”

“The FFA is a grassroots organization that makes its best impact at the local level,” said Will Fett, regional director of the National FFA Foundation. “These donations strengthen local chapters and provide the opportunity for FFA members to interact with local animal health professionals. For example, one chapter was able to purchase a new horse trailer and others will have the funds for leadership training, community service projects and agricultural education.”

Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), the world’s largest research-based pharmaceutical company, is a world leader in discovering and developing innovative animal vaccines and prescription medicines. Pfizer Animal Health is dedicated to improving the safety, quality and productivity of the world’s food supply by enhancing the health of livestock and poultry; and in helping companion animals live longer and healthier lives. For additional information on Pfizer’s portfolio of animal products, visit www.PfizerAH. com.

“We are incredibly proud of our customers and their total contribution,” said Julian Garcia, group director of U.S. cattle marketing at Pfizer Animal Health. “Not only are we excited about the good work this money will go towards in helping local agriculture communities, but we are going to continue to expand opportunities to support important agriculture organizations, like the FFA.”

The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, is a national youth organization of 507,763 student members - all preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture - as part of 7,439 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The National FFA Organization changed to its present name in 1988, in recognition of the growth and diversity of agriculture and agricultural education. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Visit www.ffa.org for more information.

In addition to the local donation program, which Pfizer Animal Health also executed this spring and plans to continue in the fall, the company is supporting the FFA at the national level. A National FFA Convention teacher classroom workshop will be sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health this year and will include cutting-edge veterinary sciences curriculum focusing on livestock health issues and production management.

Roper

Stress Negative Class Winner ’09 SWTC

T

he set of crossbred boars at LVS are the deepest and best we’ve ever had – so for us to add another boar he had better be a great one. The RW Genetics class winning boar at the 2009 SWTC in Belton is that boar. Without a doubt he was the widest based, heaviest boned, biggest hipped boar in the show. Sired by the Lickety Split boar and his dam is a littermate to the dam of Stallion at Shipley's. Roper is the difference making crossbred boar if you need to add bone, foot size, extreme base width and thicker more expressive muscle with front end extension. Exotic bred by RW Genetics.t[Lickety Split x Super 7]
