6 Representing Junior Showmen West of the Rockies

When the banners have been hung and the show barn cleaned for the final time, countless lessons will have been learned.







EDITOR It’s official! Spring has sprung! Grass is growing and flowers are blooming. Thank God for the rain we have received. We still need more, but what has come so far has been a blessing! Spring is a sign of all the activities that lie ahead. 4-H and FFA contests are in full swing, Jackpots are scheduled for every weekend, county fairs are starting up, sports practices and games fill many hours in the weekly calendars. Your minds and hands can be on overload when so much is going on. Not just for the juniors, but for parents, too.

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

Family times, where everyone is together, are few and far between. In the hustle and bustle of daily business, it’s easy to pass by without taking time to interact. The time spent driving somewhere is a good time to catch up. Even if it is just to and from school or practice or meetings, be sure to talk, ask questions, share some laughs, and BE TOGETHER! Children need to know that mom and dad are there for them, their rock to lean on. And parents need that time with their kids, to hold them close and share in their lives. That is one exciting aspect of our junior livestock shows. Family and extended family, friends, and teammates, all sharing time together. It’s pretty special and those memories will last a lifetime.

Production Manager & Art Director: William Crump — (662) 305-5434 Email: Instagram and Facebook Management: Caitlyn Hartzell –

I have often talked about the opportunities that await our youth outside of California at the major shows throughout the United States. How being able to compete with some of the best in the business, on those huge stages, is an experience that will help a person improve, expand their world, create new contacts and friendships, and open doors as they venture into the adult world.

Representatives: Katina Costerisan (661) 330-6392 (CO) Email: Mike Rusher (503) 888-1823 (OR) Tiffany Carter (530) 409-5143

In the months ahead, you have all the Junior National Breed Association Shows for cattle, World Pork Expo and NJSA shows across the states, and it’s not too far out to think about those major fall shows – American Royal and Louisville. And from there it’s just a short leap to Arizona National and the National Western Livestock Show. If hitting the “majors” is something you would love to do, I suggest you talk to those you know who have been there. They can give you lots of tips and insights that will help you prepare, and tell you what it is like to go. I always say, “Broaden your horizons! Challenge yourself!”

With Spring come the notices and letters from colleges. Yes, for those seniors who are anxiously waiting to hear if they have been accepted, this is what you have prepared for since you were little. Tons of school work, applications, and hopes and prayers have gone into preparing to get that letter from the college you dreamed of attending. I am so proud of each of you who are on the verge of the next level in your education and in your life. I have watched many of you from the time you attended your first show, enjoying your success over the years, and seeing you become the fine young person you are today. Choose a college that will help you best prepare for a career you want some day. If you aren’t sure of the exact field you want to work in, choose a college that has different areas of your major and then challenge yourself. I have seen many posts from kids who have gotten into their college of choice! What a great time in your life – enjoy it!!

All samples will be collected by the exhibitor and a parent or leader (NO EXCEPTIONS). Your cancelled check and/or postage receipt will serve as your receipt.

NEWS & UPDATES! As you are reading this article it is about the middle of March – a few weeks away from when I was sitting at my computer writing it! The annual CJLA Award Banquet was held 2 weeks ago on February 13th and it was an awesome night! Honoring the 2015 members and award recipients was the highlight of the evening. We had a great turn-out that was enjoyed by everyone there. In the next issue, we will have a complete feature on all the big news of that night, but right now we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all our generous sponsors, donors, supporters, parents, families, and CJLA members for everything YOU do to make this organization and this banquet a success. Every year we say we can’t do it without you… and that is the truth! We are constantly reminded about how much YOU care about our youth and this junior livestock industry! It’s a great feeling!

accounted for. This list was updated on February 28, 2016 before we wrapped up this issue of the magazine - so if you sent in your membership after that date, your name won’t be on here. You can contact us to be sure we have your records!

Now on to 2016! I know the highway is already grooved with plenty of tire tracks as members have hit the road to compete at the first jackpots of the year. We are starting to get show results in so will be able to post the first set of points soon. WE WILL SEND EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS TO YOU THROUGH CONSTANT CONTACT so please open and read! We do very little paper mail (except at the end of the year) to save on costs so it is really important that you read our e-blasts, check the CJLA website, and read this magazine for all the news and updates regarding CJLA. And of course, you can always call us with any questions you may have!

The 2016 CJLA Rule Book has been emailed to members and posted on the website. We encourage you to print off a copy for your reference. All the sanctioned shows are also posted on the CJLA website calendar (

In this issue, we have listed the 2016 members in each division you joined. This is so you can verify that we have your membership and you are in the correct divisions! We have not divided the divisions by age, or the cattle divisions by breed or color in this list, just by specie – Heifer Division, Steer Division, Lamb Division, Hog Division, and Goat Division. If you have any questions, or don’t see your name, please contact us so we can double-check our records and get you

CJLA Questions? Emails can be sent to or through the CJLA website:

Check out the Sanctioned Show List below! There have been a couple of shows cancelled so you might need to rethink your show plans. There are still a lot of shows in the coming months all the way through the end of the year. Remember that your top eight shows count for year-end totals but the tie breakers for both division and showmanship are the number of shows you earned points at in that division. It often happens at the end of the year that placings change based on this tie-breaker rule! So keep on trucking and keep on showing!

I think this is about all the news for now …… so go full speed ahead into the weeks and months ahead! Set new goals and work hard to achieve them! Be sure to enjoy the journey along the way! Stay safe, and be sure to thank your crew that helps you get it all done. And say Thanks to those awesome people who work so hard to put on those shows you attend!

Interesting News from the Animal Agriculture and Antibiotics: 7 Things to Consider

4. There is a lack of new antibiotics in development, both for humans and animals. While antibiotic resistance doesn’t appear to be preventing vets from treating sick animals, it remains “a continual concern,” according to Coffey. “We don’t see a whole lot of development of new animal health drugs. It’s important in that environment that we take care of the ones that we have.”

The issue of antibiotic use in animal agriculture raises more than a few big questions, both inside and outside the ag community.

Why is the pipeline so limited? Three reasons, according to Kathy Talkington, who leads The Pew Charitable Trust’s antibiotic resistance project.

How much–or how few—antibiotics should be given to food animals? Who should be making those decisions—farmers, veterinarians, policymakers, doctors, food and restaurant companies, or consumers? How will we know what are truly best practices for animal health and human health? “In all this conversation about antimicrobial resistance, we tend to get a little insular in our thinking,” said Jerome Lyman, speaking at the Farm Foundation Forum on antibiotic use in animal agriculture. “Whether we come from the medical profession, the animal health profession (or) we are producers, we are regulators, we write public policy, I think it's helpful to think a little bit from the point of view of a consumer. What I can share with you is that the consumer is pretty confused about this whole issue and … we are all at least partly to blame because we got stuck in our own circles and forgot to understand that what we are really dealing with here is the integrity and the perception of the food consumers eat, especially in the area of animal protein.”

First, there are scientific barriers—it’s difficult to create new antibiotics.

Second, there are regulatory hurdles in getting a drug approved for market and in the case of animal agriculture, worries about the drug’s usage impacting export demand.

Third, there are economic obstacles—pharmaceutical companies may decide that a potential new

antibiotic doesn’t offer enough return on investment and stop developing the drug. 5. There are, unfortunately, a lot of unknowns about the existence, volume, and quality of data already collected about the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture.

Lyman, a former vice president at McDonald’s Corp., where he oversaw the fast-food giant’s global quality systems, joined speakers from the agriculture, policy, and regulatory communities at the Washington, D.C., event.

As producers, policymakers, and veterinarians alike try to establish what best practices should be, some are finding gaps in the detailed information they seek. “How can we get better data?” asked one attendee. “We are left with sales data rather than use data.” Others see the situation differently. “There’s a lot of data,” said Coffey. “There’s a lot more data than there is information.”

How can Ag and others move forward on the complicated issue of antibiotics in animal agriculture? Here are seven factors influencing the issue, based on the discussion among the panelists and attendees.

6. Producers large and small—and their suppliers and vets-are facing potential record-keeping challenges in implementing the new veterinary feed directive.

1. Customers are increasingly asking for meat that is antibiotic-free and more.

Issued in 2015, this new rule covers animal drugs that are administered through animal feed, under the care of a vet. It is also likely to result in new processes, paperwork and perhaps data investments for vets and producers alike, which could be challenging for smaller ranchers and especially small independent feed retailers. “If this is too complicated, will those people just get out of the business of providing those important tools to that segment of the industry?” Coffey asked. “What would that mean for their livelihoods going forward?”

“It’s not an issue of no (antibiotic) residue,” said M. Terry Coffey, Ph.D., chief science and technology officer at Smithfield’s Hog Production Division. “It’s an issue of being raised without antibiotics.” Consumers also want antibiotic-free meat to be produced without growth promotants, without gestation crates, and with vegetarian feed, he said. ‘You are seeing a bundling of how animals might be raised tagging along with the ‘no antibiotics’” priority.

7. There needs to be greater collaboration and stronger relationships among those involved in the overlapping arenas of antimicrobial resistance, antibiotics and animal agriculture.

Is that economically viable? It all depends on how much consumers— and how many of those consumers—are willing to pay.

“There’s a tremendous amount of players … and not everyone approaches this from the same standpoint,” Solomon said. “There’s certainly a lack of trust.” That will have to change if producers, policy makers, and others are going to effectively address the antibiotic question.

2. Activist shareholders are influencing companies’ food supply chain decisions. From Panera moving to cage-free eggs to Perdue’s announcement it would reduce its antibiotic use, such shifts are often influenced by public pressure. “Boards of directors that ignore shareholder activism do so at their own peril,” said Jerome Lyman, a former vice president at McDonald’s, where he oversaw the fast-food giant’s global quality systems. What else is behind food and restaurant companies’ choice to drop GMOs or move to organic ingredients? The need to make marketdriven decisions ahead of everyone else in the industry. “If you are behind the curve in a competitive environment, you have already lost,” Lyman said.

3. The concerns about antimicrobial resistance, particularly in the human population, are not going away. “We absolutely are not taking this problem seriously,” said Dr. Steve Solomon of Global Public Health Consulting, who stressed the need for lowering antibiotic use overall, not just on farms or in doctor’s offices.

Pork Producers Assoc. Swine Health Recommendations:

Exhibitors of All Pigs Going to Exhibits or Sales With the animals being commingled at an exhibition, show or sale, spreading disease is a risk. The recommendations listed apply to all swine at an exhibit or sale that are physically on the premise. Having a plan in place to identify and handle sick animals properly will help reduce the chance of disease spread. In preparation for the exhibit or sale: Consult a veterinarian to understand and implement applicable biosecurity and swine health practices; keep the veterinarian’s phone number in your barn with your pig’spapers and if possible, in your cell phone. Have a premises identification number for your farm or where the pig(s) are housed (required for PQA Plus® certification or state equivalent) Utilize an individual, readable identification method for each pig: • Individual identification helps accurately and quickly identify a pig in the event of a health issue, validation of ownership or for other exhibit needs; papers can get lost or misplaced, but individual identification will remain with the pig • Refer to the exhibit organizers and the State Veterinarian for specific requirements for individual animal identification Become familiar with the clinical signs of a sick pig (such as fever, off-feed, lethargy, nasal discharge, cough, “thumping” or hard time breathing, and diarrhea). How do I take my pig’s temperature? • Normal rectal temperature of a pig = 1. Restrain your pig to avoid injury to 101.5˚ - 102.5˚ F you or the pig • Pigs can’t sweat, they need help stay2. Use a thermometer to measure ing cool on hot days. temperature: a. Digital – insert into the rectum; › During hot weather a pig’s tempush the button and wait for the perature may be elevated. beep; read temperature › If its temperature is raised, allow b. Mercury – shake down the the pig to cool off and re-take the thermometer so the red line is not showing; insert into the rectum of temperature in 15 minutes. the pig and wait 30 seconds before • Work with your veterinarian if your reading the temperature pig becomes sick. c. Laser: point the laser at the space Some diseases can transmit from huon the skin behind the ear and read temperature mans to pigs and from pigs to humans, so NOTE: Laser thermometer may not it is important to not go to the exhibition be as accurate as rectal thermometer or show if you or your pig is sick. Make sure that you have all of your equipment, including your show box and its contents, clean, disinfected and ready to go prior to the exhibition. Do not share any equipment with other exhibitors once at the exhibit. Fill out the appropriate paperwork for the exhibition including health certificates For your pig’s health certificate, you will need to provide the following information: • Your name, contact information and farm address • Individual pig identification and physical description for each animal going to the exhibit or sale • If exhibiting in a state other than where you live, have your veterinarian check with the state you are exhibiting in for specific requirements

• Include information for exhibit-specific requirements • If requested, list any current vaccines the pig has received (i.e. influenza or PRRS) and current disease testing (i.e. PRRS; PRV) At the exhibition or sale: • Assess your pigs’ health on a daily basis • Report any swine health issues Animals like cats and dogs can carry to the exhibit organizer (i.e. swine pathogens that can make pigs sick. It is imsuperintendent) or show veteriportant to prevent the spread of pathogens narian so they can assess the pig to your pigs or to others. Keep pets at home, do not let them be in contact with your pigs in question and do not bring them to the exhibit. • Ask the exhibition organizer about any specific actions that may be required if a pig becomes sick at the show. • Keep your area clean and free of manure contamination • Do not share equipment with other exhibitors • Do not bring your pets (cats or dogs) at the exhibit Once you get home: When pigs from different farms are brought to an exhibit or sale and commingled with other pigs of a different health status, the risk of catching a disease can be high. Just like people can spread illness to each other when gathered in a group, pigs from many locations in an exhibit can also spread illness to each other. Therefore, when you bring your pig back home from an exhibit or sale, it is best to place them in isolation. Isolate returning pigs from the other pigs at your farm. • Work with your veterinarian for an isolation plan. The isolation/observation period before returning to contact with other pigs should be no fewer than 7-30 days in order to detect an illness. • Consult a veterinarian if your pig becomes ill. • Clean and disinfect equipment, clothing, shoes, show box and contents, and vehicles/trailers that were used at the exhibition. Clean-up can be as simple as washing, disinfecting and allowing your equipment to dry out in the sun. Clean and dry equipment will help to prevent the spread of pathogens. Recommendations for isolation: (if you have other pigs at your farm) • Isolation will allow for time for pigs to be observed for disease after they return from an exhibition or sale. When pigs are in isolation, additional testing can be complete to check for diseases before pigs are added back to the rest of the farm (e.g. PRRS). Check with your veterinarian for testing recommendations. • Have a designated area away from other pigs that have not been to a show. • Do chores for the pigs in the isolation area as the last task of the day after you have already worked with your other pigs. • Have dedicated boots and coveralls for isolation only. Another option is to use disposable coveralls and plastic boots for use in isolation and then thrown away when done in isolation. • Have a separate trash can for use in isolation only. • Supplies such as buckets and feed pans should not be shared between pigs in isolation and other animals. • All equipment should be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and allowed to dry after use in the isolation area.

Legit hair pop and shine with out the oil residue. This is the best show day hair product we have ever used. Shock that lifeless flat show day hair back to life with Sullivan’s Shock. This mixture of all natural ingredients creates a show day hair pop like no other. Not only does it penetrate deep forcing the hair to stand at attention but it also gives a deeper, fuller look to the hair while also adding a shine without any oil residue that weighs the hair down. You can also use Sullivan’s Shock before clipping to make the hair rise for an easier, smoother clip. Sullivan’s Shock is a ready- to-use product, no dilution needed. DIRECTIONS: Spray Sullivan’s Shock on clean dry hair. Comb in and work hair with blower for 5 - 10 minutes to work Shock into the full length of the hair.



Sullivan’s Lakeside Lights are specifically engineered, no heat, 24-volt lights that will chase the shadows away. Made from the highest quality LED crystals on the market, these lights provide the best illumination available. Each specially engineered circuit board is placed inside an extruded aluminum housing making these lights not only light weight with a slim design, but they are also durable and moisture resistant. One unique feature of Sullivan’s Lakeside Lights is the detailed design for directional lighting. Each strip targets an area of your choosing, which make more light in the areas that need it. The entire kit of lights connect to each other for one continuous stretch of lighting without needing multiple power supplies (Each kit is powered by one 185W power supply). • Highest Quality LED Crystals • No Heat • Slim Design • Easy Attachment • Directional Lighting • Moisture Resistant • Independently Switchable Vertices • All lights connect using one power supply
