August/September 2009


from the

editor As every issue of this magazine nears completion, it continually amazes me how fast time goes by. There is that brief period after the issue is in the mail, that I think I will have time to get caught up on something else I have been meaning to do. And then, “whoosh” those 2 weeks are gone, and I am feverously working on a new edition of Pacific Showcase. Now summer is almost over, State Fairs are in full swing, and many of you are heading back to school after a too-brief vacation. I am sure you also think that time has gone by too fast.

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

It has been 15 years since I began this magazine. Talk about time flying by! I have watched so many kids go up through the ranks of 4-H and FFA. From smiling, little, dirty, faces hugging their favorite animal and holding tight to a blue or red or yellow ribbon, on up to those same kids standing proudly in a uniform of green and white or blue and gold as they are recognized for an achievement or for having a champion in the show ring. These same kids have been members of the California Junior Livestock Association for the past 10 years, and have made us all proud as they have displayed their skills and sportsmanship at jackpots throughout California. Each June, I highlight these same kids in my “Graduating Seniors” section of the magazine, and I realize that another group has grown up and are moving on to a new adventure in their lives. I always feel a little older then, but then I remember how much fun it has been to watch them grow up and develop into independent, strong, young men and women. I have especially enjoyed all the times I have been able to listen to their stories and adventures about raising and showing animals, and to hear how much those times have meant to each and every one.

I remember back to when I was finishing school, and then on my own, fitting cattle full time. I have some wonderful memories of great times and great animals. What an adventure that all was. Towards the end of my fitting days, I had to have some surgeries, and it made me wonder what would happen if I got hurt and wasn’t able to work or do the same job I was now doing. What would I do then? Was I prepared to make a change in my life and take on a new career? Those thoughts led me to where I am today – publishing the Pacific Showcase magazine. I always loved working with kids and wanted some way to bring the junior livestock industry to the forefront and to the public view. When I started the magazine, I was able to use the contacts and associations with people I had made throughout my years in 4-H, college, and working in the cattle industry, to help me start this venture. I hope each of you realize the importance of the contacts you make, the impressions you leave on people you meet, and how that can open doors for you down the road.

It Pays to Give Come Auction Time By José A. Guerrero, partner, Klein DeNatale Goldner, and Nancy Villarreal, law student, UC Berkeley School of Law.

The Plan in Action When soliciting contributions from a potential donor, be sure to tell them that their support could be financially beneficial to them because their donation may provide a tax benefit at the federal and state level. In Kern County, California, for example, the Kern County Livestock Committee, Inc. manages the Kern County Fair’s Junior Livestock Auction. The organization is a charitable non-profit and donations to it are considered tax deductable by both the federal government and the state. Because their supporters receive a tax benefit, young people participating in the Kern County Fair are able to maximize the financial reward they receive at auction.

Raising and exhibiting livestock is hard work. A young person has to feed, care for, and show his or her fair project. After a child’s work in the show ring is complete, the many months of hard work culminates at the livestock auction. The payoff can be significant if the young person learns how to communicate to others the advantages of supporting his efforts. Fortunately, convincing others to support his efforts need not be difficult. Funding an animal project can provide tax benefits to the donor. Depending on the organization operating the auction and the state in which the donor lives, the donor may be able to obtain state and federal tax benefits for his contribution.

A Successful Auction

It Pays to Give

Raising livestock is not easy. But thanks to the tax benefits that the federal government and the state may offer your supporters, you can help ensure that your hard work will be rewarded financially when the auctioneer yells “Sold!”

Generally, the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) treats contributions to charitable non-profit organizations as charitable donations. This can provide a federal tax benefit to the donor. To see if the local organization that handles the livestock auction in your area is eligible to receive charitable contributions, call the organization. If you or your parent would like to verify the information, you may also visit http://www.irs.gov/app/pub-78/ to confirm whether donations to the organization can be used as tax deductions.

The information provided in this article is for informational purposes only and is not intended to replace the advice of a qualified tax advisor. When discussing potential tax benefits with your potential supporters, be sure to suggest that they consult with a local qualified tax advisor.

In addition, donors may also be able to receive a tax benefit from the state for their contribution. For example, California, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, and Idaho may provide tax deductions to donors who contribute to non-profit organizations. States like Nevada and Washington, however, do not have a personal income tax and therefore donors in these states may only be able to receive a federal tax benefit. The chart below summarizes this information. When speaking to the organization, it is important to ask whether or not the state considers contributions to it to be tax deductible. Generally, organizations must have special certification from the state for charitable donations to qualify for a state tax benefit.

State Legislation Impacts Farms & Ranches By Casey Gudel

milk pool, allowing those processors to significantly expand their market share.

Nearly 3,000 pieces of legislation have been introduced in the State Legislature this year. Each of which, to varying degrees, could have an impact on the way you live your life, how you run your business or the services available for your family.

SB 362 passed out of the Senate, but was stopped in the Assembly Agriculture Committee by a narrow margin.

While there is no doubt that agriculture is under-represented in the State Legislature, Los Angeles County alone is represented by 40 members – that’s one third of the entire legislative body, agriculture is lucky to have some great people working on their behalf.

AB 1437 Proposition 2 Standards for Egg Production AB 1437 (Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael) was intended to ensure California’s consumer expectations for animal care and safety by requiring that all eggs, regardless of where they were produced, comply with standards set forth in the November’s animal care initiative, Proposition 2.

Staff from the various agricultural organizations worked hard this session to stop specific pieces of legislation that would have negative impacts on California’s family farms and ranches.

SB 416

Antibiotics in Food Animals

Unfortunately, the language in Proposition 2 did not set clear standards on how much space or what types of housing systems would be needed to comply with the initiative.

In the bill’s original form, SB 416 (Dean Florez, D-Shafter) prevented farmers and ranchers from using production practices that maintain animal health and provide a safe food supply to consumers by banning the use of antibiotics for “non-therapeutic” or preventative uses in livestock.

Which begs the question, how can California require farmers from other states to comply with standards that have not yet been set for their own farmers? Both the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and egg producers opposed the bill which lead the author to hold the bill until next year and try to work out an agreement on housing standards.

The bill also required schools to try to purchase meat products that had not been treated with antibiotics. If schools are unable to comply, they would be required to document and report their purchases to the state. SB 416 was voted down in the Senate (15-20), but granted reconsideration and moved to the inactive file where it can be brought up next January.

Even though the above bills have been stopped for now, that does not mean they won’t come back this year. One of the most critical times of the legislative process occurs in August and September, during the last months of the legislative session.

SB 362 Milk Pooling

This period is often referred to as the “gut and amend” season. It is not uncommon for bill language to be completely scratched and new language inserted in its place.

SB 362 (Dean Florez, D-Shafter) would only inflate the unprecedented challenges the dairy industry is currently facing by creating unfair competition between regulated and unregulated milk processors.

The new language may have nothing in common with the original bill. Even worse, the bills slide through with little or no opportunity for input from those who will be impacted by its passage.

The bill would allow six milk processors who already control 25% of the bottled milk market, to be exempt from the California

So how do you keep up with the nearly 3,000 pieces of legislation making its way through the legislative process? You certainly can’t do it alone! Stay involved in your respective industry associations – they are your best defense in protecting yourself and your businesses from harmful legislation.

Involvement in such organizations gives you the opportunity to learn about the issues and take action to help resolve them. Farm Bureau, for instance, has an email alert system called the “Farm Team.” You don’t have to be a member to participate and it only takes seconds to send a letter to your elected official.

Mom's Memories:

Butter and Egg Money

By Kathleen Wood Vieira

and each of the many little discs scrubbed by hand. Our cream was very rich and thick and it was quite a task to wash each part

My mother, Mary Ann Wood, was born in 1920, barely ten years before the October 29th, 1929 Stock Market crash which ushered in the era of the Great Depression. She often told me that even though she only had a total of two dresses to wear to school, they were better off than most since they never went hungry. Through the family’s hard work, they were able to keep food on their own table and produce extra to trade at the local store.

The skim milk was fed to the calves and pigs and the cream was stored in clean cream cans until it just began to sour, then it was churned in a wooden churn. The paddles were operated by hand-power, turning the milk over and over until butter formed. The butter was removed to a large wooden bowl and washed several times in clear water. After it was washed, salt was added and the housewife used a wooden paddle to work the butter back and forth, squeezing the excess water out. This was a very important step. If the water was not removed, the butter would not have a sweet taste, something Mom prided herself on. Next, the sweet golden butter was shaped in a wooden mold into one-pound oblongs and wrapped in a special type of paper we ordered from the Sears-Roebuck catalogue.

Recently, it was asked if my mother had worked. Well, yes, women of my mother’s and her mother’s era worked darn hard. They cooked from scratch, often raising and processing the food they cooked. They grew and preserved fruits and vegetables; they washed clothes by hand, heated and cooked with wood and often hauled water by hand. My mother often took on cowboy tasks, working cattle and fixing fence. When I was very young, I remember my grandmother asking what I wanted for my birthday. I told her all I wished for was some of her homemade butter. I’m still convinced it was the best in the world.

It was Mom and my sister Mildred’s job to churn the butter and make it into Above: Mary the pound packages. My Ann Wiegand The following is another of Mom’s Memories: Wood. At right: mother, Mary Wiegand, was her mother, known in the countryside for Mary Meyer her good sweet butter and it Wiegand was much in demand. Some customers would come to the by Mary Ann Wiegand Wood farm to buy the butter for 30 cents Butter and egg money was an important part of the farm income per pound. (To give you an idea of the for the thrifty farmers of the early 1900’s. Each member of the times, we paid hired men a dollar a day wages). The butter was farm family had a part in making this income possible. delivered to the Miller Brothers’ grocery store on First and D Street in Encinitas, California. It was the only store in town for As I was growing up, my job was to bring the cows to the milking many years. Sam and Paul Miller were the proprietors. They barn from the pasture where they grazed during the day. Some would give us credit on our bill for the butter. In those days we afternoons, I would become very exasperated as the cows would would charge the groceries and pay at the end of each month. see me coming and run to hide in the heavy willow trees lining Some farmers would pay when their harvest was all in, but we the stream. Those cows could hide very nicely. paid each month. I rode bareback, so if I got off my horse to climb into the thicket

Butter and Egg Money

After I graduated high school, it was my job to deliver the butter to special customers and to the Miller Brothers’ market on my way to my job at Bank of America.

after them, I couldn’t get back on. I was too small and needed a box or fence or someone to help me mount up. Sometimes I could call them out and sometimes I had to ride back to the house, crying in frustration, telling Mom that the cows had hidden, again! She would give me a white dish towel to hang on the willow trees where they were hiding so Pop could find them. This didn’t help much, because in a short time they would move to another spot. Usually those silly cows came home when they felt like it, but it was really aggravating.

In addition to the butter business, my mother had a big flock of chickens and the eggs were sold the same as the butter. Customers came to the farm to buy and the rest would be delivered to the Miller Brothers’ store. Money collected from butter and eggs was Mom’s spending money. She used it for household expenses and for our clothing, shoes, Christmas gifts and special occasions. We did not use credit cards in those days. If we had the money to buy what we needed, we got it. If not, we did without. Mom did very well with this special fund, but she spent many long hours of hard work preparing the butter and cleaning and packing the eggs.

After Pop and the hired man came in from working in the fields, they would milk the cows, carry the full pails to the cool room and run it through the cream separator. The fresh milk was poured through a strainer into the large metal bowl sitting atop the separating machinery. One person turned the handle and when the right speed was achieved, a spigot was turned on and the milked flowed through a series of discs. The cream flowed out one pipe and the skim milk came out another.

I have many happy memories of coming home to the wonderful aroma of fresh-baked bread, cutting a thick slice and spreading it with a generous helping of fresh, sweet butter. Add an ice-cold glass of buttermilk and it’s truly food fit for the gods!

Another of my jobs was to clean the parts of the separator. To keep it sparkling clean, it had to be disassembled after every use August/September 2009

west toward the fairgrounds, but a determined batch took off east, back to the Plains. In a cloud of dust, the Twisselman clan field-roped them one by one, proving how they had made it to the National Finals.

kathleen's

Korner

“It’ll get better,” I promised my husband, watching the impromptu rodeo. “Once we get over that hill, the cattle will be warm and stay together pretty good. At least they didn’t run through the nursery this year.”

Driving the Devil’s Herd

“Keep that line! Head to tail! Tighten it up!” And away we went, heading to the fair. But at the base of the hill, the road narrowed, creating a bottleneck where the horses would have trouble staying together. At the base of the hill, the million dollar homes began.

By Kathleen Wood Vieira

The cattle remained waspish, testing all of us. I kept Rooster’s nose planted into a fat palomino’s haunches and Richard kept Henry’s against Rooster. This didn’t make my horse happy.

We were all saddled up and ready to ride. Opening day of the California Mid-State Fair and the annual cattle drive down the streets of Paso Robles was set to begin. There was the usual cast of characters, the real cowboys and those of us who had a hankering for the old west but a job in town. Some of us had experience and some thought this was little more than a pony ride with photo ops.

Richard and I, mid-way in the pack of horses, saw the whole thing unravel. Despite the efforts of the real cowboys, at least a dozen head broke right at the spot I thought they would, and headed south, across the manicured million-dollar landscaping, towards Von’s market and the country club. “All of you, keep the rest of ‘em here,” the trailboss barked, pointing to a vacant lot. We surrounded the remaining steers, who worriedly picked at the foxtails and star thistle.

Mark and Sheila Borjon, owners of Golden Hills GMC, who had hosted this event for years, visited with the crowd. The plan was for the mayor and fair queens to ride on the horse-drawn wagon. John Alkire, Mid-State Fair CEO, the police chief, the owners of the local salesyard, and the ranchers who supplied the cattle would ride at the head of the herd and the rest of us would ride point and drag, keeping the cattle bunched and moving along at a steady rate, planning our grand entrance at the main gate slightly before noon. The cattle were coming from the Twisselman Ranch out on Carissa Plains, and we could see the trailer making its way through the early morning rush hour traffic.

This wasn’t looking good, I thought. A horse would sneeze and the cattle would startled, plus most of the real cowboys had headed over the hill in hot pursuit. They had left us CEO John. This sure wasn’t the way he wanted the fair to make the evening news. John’s cell phone rang. “Let’s go. They’ve got them at the top of the hill,” he shouted to us. We moved them forward at a brisk trot. It was late morning and the Paso Robles weather was heating up. Good deal, I thought. The steers will be tired pretty soon and easier to handle.

They unloaded the mob into a set of temporary holding corrals. I had been on a number of these drives and this batch seemed a tick more anxious than usual. They circled like a school of nervous mosquito fish.

“We’re on a roll now,” I confidentially told my husband, just as they broke again. My horse was sweating, so was I. I kept praying that these cattle would calm down soon.

Henry, my husband’s horse, relaxed; my horse, Rooster, ready to get the job done, jiggled his bit. I found myself humming that old cowboy tune, “Get Long Little Dogie,” but little did I know that by the end of the drive, I would be living one of the west’s most haunting ballads, immortalized by talents like Johnny Cash and Sons of the Pioneers.

We fought that herd the next mile, watching eyes and ears for signs of further insurrection. They tried to hide on the oak trees; they tried to break for the river; they had no respect for law enforcement blocking the way with lights flashing. We had two bridges to cross, but after the right turn onto Riverside, the last mile was a straight shot to the fairgrounds, except for the three freeway off ramps. I almost forgot about those.

“I want you folks to keep a tight line. Keep your horse’s nose right on the tail of the one in front of you,” the trailboss said to us all. To the real cowboys he said, “Let ‘em out!”

“Kick up,” I shouted, pushing Rooster firmly against the palomino. “Keep the line!”

They opened the gate and we had cattle everywhere. Most turned

We made it past the first freeway entrance and then the second. By the time we passed the third, I was confident enough to tip my hat to the crowd. I could see the double Ferris wheel and smell the cotton candy. Two more blocks to go. We were close enough for those rambunctious bovines to know that water was close at hand. But the ballfield grass was green and some headed that way. We were on top of it and spun them back to the group before the real cowboys saw what was unfolding.

"Where Champions Are Born"

We turned the corner, past the carnival and pushed them toward the Rodeo gate. We had them now, I thought. There was a sixfoot chainlink fence on both sides and a three-deep line of riders guarding the rear. I confidently looked back to offer a thumbs up of victory to my husband and saw the middle of the herd vortex like a category five tornado and try to bust through, again. But the back line held fast and we squeaked through the gate, pushing

"All of the goats in our nationally competitive show string are fed Bar ALE Mac Goat and Sunglo supplements. At this year's IBGA show, we had people from all over the U.S. complimenting our goats. We feel they look better than ever, thanks to the high quality and consistent product we get from Bar ALE. Whether we're selling purebred yearling does, or wether kids to jackpot exhibitors, we use and recommend Bar ALE and Sunglo feeds, because it gets the job done, and well! We highly recommend Bar ALE and Sunglo products, and wouldn't feed anything else."

"White Rail Ranch has been using Bar Ale - MAC Goat for two years and we are really impressed with our goat's performance since feeding it. We start our kids on it at two weeks old and feed it until they are sold. We also reccomend it to our feeders. We had our best project sales this year and every one commented on how good the kids looked - I attubute this to the Mac Goat. The pellet is a good firm pellet - never crumbles - no fines! We also use the Sunglo supplements and have had super results. I really like the service I get from Adam Mendonza of Bar Ale. We will continue to use and reccomend Bar Ale and Mac Goat."

The winner's circle

Presented by

Main Street America nice waitress in Texas and the dirt road by my grandparent’s old place. Who knows what they’ll remember?

Summer is almost over and school, for many, has already started. Time flies when you are having fun. Summer goes quickly when you are involved in county fairs, summer sports leagues and family vacations.

I love America. You can’t help but love it once you have seen it up close. As a country we are blessed with a diversity of topography and people. Our soils are fertile. Our fields are flush with crops that feed a world. And our farmers and ranchers across this great country continue to nurture our animals and our food. On our trip we saw proof that the American family farmer and rancher is working hard.

This year the boys and I went to see my relatives in Alabama. Instead of flying we decided to take a road-trip…yep, the Vernon boys truckin’ across America. It was quite the adventure. We took a helicopter through the Grand Canyon, gathered cattle on horses in Oklahoma, saw two Heisman Trophies, played guitars on stage in Memphis, ate at some great diners, met and saw friends along the way and generally had the time of our lives. It was fun. Even for Conner and Kyler. They didn’t complain, except when they had to take pictures at each of the state’s welcoming signs along the way (eight in all). They enjoyed straddling the state lines and throwing rocks from one state to the other.

As we drove through small towns we’d eat at the local coffee shops. There we saw the leathered faces and rough hands of simple and genuine people, farmers and ranchers. We overheard few complaints. Instead we heard more friendly banter of old friends catching up. It was like hearing a family gathered around the kitchen table joking and kidding with each other. The boys and I were outsiders, but the townfolks let us listen.

Our trip was wonderful and I’m sure your family has some great memories of similar trips. I think these kinds of trips are important. They are more than just a family vacation. They’re an education. You learn so much when you take the time to slow down and get off the beaten path. I recommend everyone take a road trip across America.

Our country is changing. The roads we took on this trip were not the same roads I had taken as a kid even though we followed the same path – Route 66. No, today the road is different. It bypasses many of the small towns along the way. Once thriving as America drove through, today many towns along the way have become ghost towns to progress. America’s Main Street has become a bypass. It is as if we have become too hurried to stop and say hello. Bigger, faster roads now take us around the towns without having to stop. While I understand the need for modern interstate travel, I think it is a shame what we have lost along the way.

As a parent, you’re never really sure what childhood experiences your kids will remember, but you hope they’re good ones. I hope my sons remember their first helicopter ride was through the Grand Canyon – truly one of the seven wonders of the world. I hope they enjoyed riding horses and checking cattle at my friend Kyle Haley’s place in Oklahoma. I hope they remember with respect the Civil Rights Museum and the spot of Martin Luther King’s death. I hope they remember the wide open spaces of Arizona and New Mexico, the lush grass and trees of Alabama, the

That, in part, is why we took our road trip. To see what America looks like off the main highway. I want my boys to understand that this country’s strength lives in the hearts of those small towns. It is there that people care about their neighbors. They work hard. They appreciate simple things. They know your name because they see you every Sunday in church or at the only grocery store in town. They know your family…good and bad. Our trip was fun. It is 5,324 roundtrip miles from our house in California to my aunt’s house in Altoona, Alabama. It is a million memories. Dr. J.

Reserve 4-H Champion Calaveras County Fair

From dark chocolate to selenium, supplementing dairy diets with antioxidants The old adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” may soon be replaced with “a candy bar a day.” Once considered just an after-dinner treat, dark chocolate is now thought to be a healthy supplement to the diet — and it’s all because of antioxidants.

reserves and can have a severe impact on their ability to resist disease challenges. Acting as an antioxidant through selenium-containing enzymes, selenium can help to protect milk producing cells, reduce somatic cell count in milk and increase defense mechanisms within the udder against bacteria.

Antioxidants are molecules that slow or prevent the oxidation of chemicals. Recent studies have shown that these molecules can be helpful in maintaining health and preventing disease. But humans are not the only ones racing to get their hands on the supplement; the animal industry has also seen benefits. While humans are grabbing chocolate kisses, animal producers are reaching for organic selenium supplements.

Prior to 2003, the only FDA approved sources of selenium were sodium selenite and sodium selenate. Today animals have another option to build their selenium status through natural forms, such as Sel-Plex® from Alltech®. Since injected inorganic selenium cannot be stored in appreciable amounts, it is more rapidly excreted. In contrast, the organic selenium form is better retained and more biologically available than inorganic forms, which allows the animal to build nutrient reserves against periods of increased demand without risking toxicity. This is reflected by increased selenium in blood, tissues and milk.

The role of selenium in animal diets has noticeably changed over the last 75 years. In the 1930s, selenium was considered a toxic agent and thought to be the cause of alkali disease in animals. In 1957, selenium research by Schwarz and Folz showed that selenium is an essential nutrient for laboratory animals. Since its FDA approval in 1987, selenium has become a standard ingredient in animal diets. Besides including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium, chloride, zinc, copper, iodine, cobalt, and Vitamins A, D, and E in rations, nutritionists have found the value of also adding selenium.

Selenium is needed to maintain good animal health. Animals fed insufficient amounts of selenium are at higher risk for diseases. While selenium has several roles, the most well-known is antioxidant defense. This makes it important in every cell in the body as well as for the immune system.

A mineral naturally found in forages and grains, selenium is often deficient in the diet due to variations in soil content across the country. For those of you showing breeding stock, selenium deficiency is especially critical. When selenium reserves are at their lowest during parturition, the transfer of selenium to the developing animal through the placenta then into colostrum and milk can be a drain on the animal’s August/September 2009

While the selenium status of our animals is important, owners should also examine their own diets. Humans may soon turn to organic selenium for their own antioxidant defense instead of the popular dose of chocolate.

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.

It’s simple. Alltech knows natural. Call Alltech for your free guide to natural animal production.

The Head: Right and Wrong By Tracy Dendinger

3. Head 90 degrees to the top of the neck (nose not upward)

The head of the sheep is often not thought about when driving the sheep competitively, yet it is the part of the animal that really makes the picture “pretty”, both in photos as well as the profile in the show ring. So why do so many showmen ignore the obvious? Is it because there are too many other things to do? Is it because they can’t see it? Is it because they have not been taught? Or is it because they do not care? I have often wondered why the head gets little attention from the showman since it has so much to do with completing the “look” of the lamb itself. In my opinion, the position of the head is a controllable variable in showing, so I believe it must be controlled in the benefit of the animal’s presentation.

4. No hands covering the back of the neck (shortens the length on the profile) 5. Centered with the animal’s body so that a straight line exists from the tip of the nose to the end of the dock 6. The ears held in a natural carriage position (NOT held/pulled upward) 7. The underline of the jaw parallel to the ground, not rested on the exhibitor’s arm 8. Use a MIRROR to get it right!

Rules of the head:

Below are some photos for you to evaluate as to the position of the head being right or wrong. As you evaluate each photo (on this page and next page), try to identify what is actually incorrect about the position and handling of the head.

1. To be lightly, lightly held 2. Neck 90 degrees to the back or base of the neck

The Smart Decision 2009 NJSA Jason Shipley Memorial Scholarship Awarded to Kylie Watson

All Aluminum Showmaster — New 6x12 model designed for smaller livestock. Affordable with standard aerodynamic front. Comes with 14 standard features.

The Shipley family of Newark, Ohio, presented the second Jason Shipley Memorial Scholarship in memory of their son to Kylie Watson of Marysville, Calif., on July 2 during the National Junior Summer Spectacular (NJSS) in Louisville, Ky. The $1,000 scholarship was developed to honor an NJSA member who has a strong background in athletics and the swine industry. Watson is studying Agricultural Communications at Redlands Community College in El Reno, Okla. It is her goal to obtain her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Oklahoma State University in Agricultural Communications and use her education to work in the media relations field, where she can have the opportunity to promote agriculture and the swine industry.

Our popular livestock Poppers® weigh only 200 lbs. Features include all-aluminum construction, double rear doors, full swing center gate and "easy on - easy off" convenience.

Kylie Watson has been an active member of the NJSA since 2001. She has exhibited at both the NJSA Western Regional and World Pork Expo, in addition to attending NJSA conferences in California and Indiana. She has also proven to be a strong competitor and enthusiastic player in several sports. Kyle has participated in soccer, baseball, AAU basketball and high school basketball.

All-Aluminum Livestock Toppers and Poppers® • Carries our 10-year warranty • Models to fit any truck

Watson says she has learned a lot from her involvement in athletics and the swine industry, both having instilled within her the basic virtues required for success. Among these virtues, she includes goal setting, follow-through, teamwork, and the value of being surrounded by a positive environment to be the best you can be. She says she aspires to be a constructive member of society and use the knowledge she has gained though both sports and agriculture throughout her life.

Meanwhile, back at the Waterin’ Hole, we heard the rest of the story. One steer was roped on the town’s water tank hill in a spectacular bounce-off-the-fence catch. A couple more were caught in the Von’s market’s parking lot; one made it all the way to the country club’s golf course. A lady, who lived in one of the million dollar homes, got into the spirit and graciously offered to open her gate so they could corral the critters. John Alkire and the fair landscaping crew were busy “mending fences” later that afternoon.

Showpigs — Past, Present and Future! By Rachelle Bailey

Have you ever looked back at an old class photo and think, “what was I thinking? Why did I wear that? What happened to my hair?” Most of these have to do with changing trends that may have looked “cool” at the time. The pork industry has gone through many trends and changes over the last century. Most changes have impacted the pork industry in a positive way. Not too long ago I looked at some old Duroc publications and was surprised at what I had seen. These champion breeding stock were from the 1970’s and if were shown today probably wouldn’t even compare to current standards. I can even look back at hogs that were shown in the late 1990’s from when I showed, big framed, long bodied hogs that probably only had .2 “ of backfat on them. These hogs were what judges preferred. Hogs that would rank high on a fat free lean index. Even hogs that are competitive today would probably be considered too fat and be placed towards the end of the class. Though we have to appreciate where we have gone and where we are going terms of genetic improvement and consumer demands. The hog that may have looked different today was what we considered “ideal” at some point and we need to appreciate that.

back was slightly arched. Bone on the lard-type hog was refined and small which was pleasing to the butchers. The lard-type market hogs had a firm look to them, when they became too soft in their muscle those types were not of the highest quality in the showring.

Past Historically pig shows were started because pig farmers wanted to compare and decide which pigs were the best, which gave local farmers bragging rights. Pig shows were also focused on purebreds such as the Yorkshire, Hampshire, Duroc-Jersey, Landrace, Chester White, Berkshire, Poland China, Spotted Poland China, Tamworth’s and even Herefords. Pigs weren’t clipped, pigs didn’t have air conditioned trailers and pigs weren’t fed show diets like they are today. Farmers raised their pigs using a basic diet of corn and would maybe give their pig’s buttermilk baths before the show. The pork industry has changed so much in the past eighty years. As time goes on our definition of an “ideal” market hog both in and out of the showring changes.

Hogs during this period had age and weight standards which included a six month old hog that weighed about 200 lbs, a nine month old hog should weigh about 300 lbs and a twelve month old hog should weigh about 400 lbs. The average weigh of a market hog was about 225 lbs in the 1920’s. The Bacon type consisted of two breeds which were the Yorkshire and Tamworth. The bacon-type hog was very different from the lard-type. The bacon hog was described as having a lighter shoulder, neck and jowl along with having greater length from snout to tail and greater length of leg. Bacon hogs should have between 1” -1 ½” of backfat when processed. The average market weight was between 160 to 220 lbs. Most of the “good” carcasses were from hogs that weighed between 175 to 190 lbs.

Going back to the early 1920’s the United States focused on two types of market hogs, American or Lard-Type hog and the Bacon-type. The lard-type hog was created in the United States but many European breeds that were imported to create the American which we call the lard-type. These lard-type breeds included the following: Duroc-Jersey, Poland-China, Chester White, Berkshire and Hampshire. The Berkshire and Hampshire were considered a combination breed that could produce market hogs that would fit under both lard and bacon types.

Bacon hogs were very active and flexible and the best bacon had a large amount of lean meat which the lard hog couldn’t provide. Bacon hogs were fed peas, barley and skim milk where as lard type hogs were fed a corn based diet.

The lard-type market hog was a small framed, short bodied hog which at the time was described as broad, deep, compact, short legged who’s

Market hogs changed as consumer demands changes. In the 1980’s Americans decided that pork was too fat. Pork Producers worked hard on increasing the amount of leanness and muscle on a market hog. The Pork Checkoff created Symbol which represented the market hog of the 1980’s. Symbol II was created in 1995 which was a leaner, heavy muscled hog. In 2005 Symbol III was created where as carcass and meat quality have become more important traits. As you can see in just the past 25 years market hogs have changed from being “too fat” to “too lean” to going towards a market hog that has a combination of both.

Today pig shows have changed dramatically from their original intent. Raising showpigs have become a “niche” market of the pork industry. Most youth that are showing pigs go out and purchase these animals from sales. Showing pigs have become similar too playing a sport by winning points and even receiving scholarships for their efforts if they win a show. Youth work with nutritionists, veterinarians and breed-

PREVENTION:

By Terry L. Burks

One of the biggest challenges that face both feeders and goat producers in general is the problem known as urinary calculi or kidney stones. This phenomenon can greatly range in severity from slight discomfort and reduced urine flow to complete urinary tract blockage and eventual death. I have had many feeders tell me they have never experienced any problems with urinary calculi and to these statements my response is “you are very, very fortunate!� I can personally testify to the devastation urinary calculi can cause to a kid crop.

Obviously, nutritional management is critical in preventing urinary calculi. Maintaining the correct Ca:P ratio is the key! Having the ability to check your feed, forage and water for their Ca:P ratio is extremely important. With respect to mineral nutrition, maintaining a 2 to 1 Ca:P is essential. Likewise, being sure to have adequate free choice salt available to help maximize water intake is very critical. It goes without saying that having fresh, clean cool water available at all times is a must! We have also incorporated urine acidifiers into our urinary calculi prevention program. The addition of one ounce of apple cider vinegar per gallon of water will aid in this process. One word of caution! If you are going to use apple cider vinegar you MUST change your water at least twice a day. These acidifiers can also be added to your feeds. When buying commercial feeds an acidifier will already be added. However, if you are mixing your own feed then you should add at least 20 lbs. of ammonium chloride per ton of feed to aid in the prevention of calculi.

Urinary calculi, although capable of occurring in both sexes, is primarily only a concern in males. It is nothing more than the development of stones (calcium deposits) in the kidneys which are then typically passed into the bladder, through the urethra, the male reproductive organ and then out of the body. The problem arises when these stones are too large and then become stuck somewhere between the kidney and the urethral process. Generally these stones become lodged in the urinary tract, between the urethra and the urethral process. This causes blockage of the urine flow and unless this blockage is removed or passed, this will eventually cause rupture of the bladder and likewise death of the affected kid.

TREATMENT: Typically when a goat contracts urinary calculi, the first signs you will see are stomach discomfort, straining to urinate and an elevated body temperature. As conditions worsen, the goat will typically become isolated, withdrawn, will often refuse to stand or walk and will often be seen biting at his sheath. A guaranteed sign of calculi is when the kid strains to urinate and then begins screaming in pain due to the blockage. Unfortunately, at this point you may have waited too long before beginning treatment. The time period from initial signs to the most extreme can be a very few hours depending on the blockage the kid may have. As SOON as symptoms are discovered, treatment should be started. Heavy doses of urine acidifiers are often administered. Goats are usually drenched with additional water. This is not only to prevent dehydration but to also try and flush the lodged stone loose. Often muscle relaxers are given to aid in trying to dislodge the stone. Many people will use pain killers in an attempt to relieve some of the pain that the goat is experiencing. In dire emergencies, the urethral process can be clipped off. If the stone is lodged in this area, urine will begin to spray immediately. This is not a complicated surgical procedure, and it often solves the immediate concern. Even though this procedure may be successful in solving the immediate problem, it is often only a temporary fix due to the presence of multiple stones. Additionally, the use of antibiotics and probiotics is always recommended when surgery, no matter how minor, is involved. Often more advanced surgery may be required; unfortunately, results are often not very positive.

There are a number of potential causative agents related to the development of these stones. The primary area of concern is the calcium-phosphorus ratio in the diet being consumed. Feeds that are extremely high in their phosphorus and low in their calcium levels are the primary cause. Unfortunately, there are a number of grain sources that fit this scenario. Any feed source that you are feeding should be checked for its calcium-phosphorus ratio. Additionally, feeding a goat mineral that has a wider or narrower Ca:P ratio than 2:1 can also contribute to this problem. Other factors such as calcium and phosphorus levels in the soil and water available to the goats can play a significant factor. Another consideration is the age of the kid at castration. Undoubtedly, the younger the kid is at castration the more potential that kid has to develop urinary calculi. The reasoning for this is because when we castrate at a very young age, we limit the development of the urethra and thus create a situation in which the urethra is more prone to blockage. Other factors such as limited water intake, and likewise, the genetic predisposition to urinary calculi susceptibility also play a role with this problem.

Urinary calculi can be a devastating part of the market goat program. If you have never experienced this malady, you will! Prevention is truly the key! Proper nutritional balance in addition to using a few special additives will help reduce the incidence of this aggravating problem.

REALIZE THAT AS WE DISCUSS PREVENTION AND TREATMENT, ANYTIME YOU USE ANY PRODUCT OFFLABEL YOU NEED TO HAVE A VETERINARIAN-CLIENTPATIENT WORKING RELATIONSHIP. You should always discuss these treatments with your veterinarian before incorporating them into your fitting program.

ers to ensure their showpig is provided with a balanced show diet, good vaccination program, proper exercise and skin and hair maintence. Today’s modern market hog has about .8 backfat and 7.1 LEA. The ideal weight of today’s market hog is 270 lbs. Market hogs today have more fat cover, depth of body and rib shape then market hogs had less than 5 years ago.

Future As you can see our “ideal” market hog and the way we shown pigs have changed so much in the past eighty years. We as pork producers have bred hogs that grow faster on less amount of feed through genetic improvement. These market hogs are reflected at hog shows today. Even though the pork industry is changing today and less people are involved in production agriculture I feel that fairs and shows that were once created by pig farmers to compete against one another can today and in the future help create quality people. 4-H, FFA members and Grange members can have endless opportunities such as leadership development, business skills, marketing skills and basic responsibility. I know that our industry will always be changing for the better. Youth that participate at fairs and shows are always trying to improve on their projects. As more and more people are less involved in production agriculture, our youth represent our industry to the public who maybe have no idea of what we do in production agriculture. Fairs and shows are essential in educating and providing for our youth. Our fairs and shows must be protected and preserved as they serve as a historical influence that has made our livestock better and more efficient. Just a century ago farmers were competing against each other to produce an industry standard. Today most commercial pork producers have no part in showing pigs at the fair. These fairs have played a major role in early development of American breeds and competition to make hogs better. The hogs today are usually shown by purebred breeders and by youth involved in 4-H, FFA and Grange. Next time you take a look at some old photos you should appreciate them. Always remember that you wouldn’t have got to where you are today without what you did yesterday! Soures: www.pork.org Types and Market Classes of Livestock by Henry William Vaughan
