POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

As we head into 2019, I reflect back on a very successful Charolais 2018. The spring saw the most sales ever recorded, most bulls ever sold at auction, largest gross of all time, and the average up from last year. I believe we will see the trend of selling more Charolais bulls continue, as we pick up some more market share to commercial producers, who need to crossbreed and have seen the benefits this fall of the identifiable Charolais calves bringing a constant premium across the country. Remember it is the dollars per calf that need to be compared in the coffee shops, not the price per pound. Since my last editorial we have been to four sales in Ontario, four weekends in a row. Between two of the sales, we went to the Maritimes and had a good tour, instead of flying back to Regina. Candace maybe didn’t enjoy it as much as I did, as we covered 1,957 kms and nine herds in five days. (I did give her a little tourist time and a few great seafood meals.) Was great to see some of the herds again and to meet some of the new breeders there. The warm Maritime hospitality was excellent and we thank these operations. We are going to help the Maritime Association host the 2019 Canadian Charolais Association General Meeting next June. Put it on your calendar now and watch for more details soon. It will be from June 5th to 9th in three provinces with some herd tours, tidal bore rafting, sailing, lobster feasts and more. The last time it was held there in 2011, it was a blast and we will endeavor to make it as memorable again this time. In the middle of October, I also attended the CCA Board meetings in

Calgary and found them very interesting. The board is working together to ensure the breed is moving forward. I think the ads on the back cover of the Cattlemen continue to be very well done as they have been for the past number of years with some great slogans being imprinted in the industry’s mind. The breed improvement committee are encouraging more producers to do more Ultrasounding and for the breeders to make sure to submit the data. This is necessary to increase the accuracy of the Carcass EPD as they are very low at this point in time. I hope, in the near future, we can ultilize traceability to get more sire verified carcass data from the packing houses to also aid in this. They are also looking at doing some educational webinars on things like, sending in your data, EPD and working toward a Terminal Sire Index. More on this is in the Keeping Track in this issue and in the future. I also proposed and got the go ahead from the board to move forward on setting up a Charolais Foundation to raise funds for more possible research, education and youth projects for the breed. Other breeds have these in place and have been highly successful in projects that will benefit their breeds for years to come. Watch for more on this as it gets put together. The National show in Edmonton was a great success with the Players Club bringing many breeders out to the show and creating a great buzz in not only the Charolais barn, but the entire show. The ACA and all the breeders who brought out cattle need to be commended for a job well done. It was an excellent event that I hope will continue down the road. One topic to touch on is the case of Barn Blindness. The most common

Follow us on Twitter! 6

symptom is when producers are so close to their operation that it is hard for them to step back and objectively see what they may need to improve the quality of the program. This is at all levels. As a breeder, you can ask some of your good customers or fellow breeders what they see your product needs to improve and you can return the favour by looking hard at your customers’ herds. An outside opinion is always a good thing, and if objective, can be very constructive and profitable. Over the years, I have seen breeders keep buying some of the same problems into their herds rather than maybe give something else up to correct a situation in their cow base. Breeding cattle is a series of compromises and you must always strive to not compromise this same things repeatedly. Marketing tip for this month is to always include a complete tattoo with herd letters when posting on social media or sending a picture to someone. This way it is properly identified and if the receiver wants to gather more information they can do so easily if the animal is registered. Please extend this to every thing you send. Many people send their bull sale weights and scrotal measurements labelled, “sale weights and scrotals.” Be sure to put your farm or family name in the file name. Your customer may receive more than one of these sheets and having your name in the file name is very helpful. We are now planning our picture, video and advertising schedules for the spring which are already starting in December. Give Craig Scott, Jon Wright or myself a call to see how we can help you have the most profitable bull sale season ever. Until next time, Helge

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs Helge By

À l’approche de l’année 2019, je constate que 2018 fut un succès pour la race Charolais. Le printemps a apporté des ventes record pour les taureaux, le nombre de taureaux vendus à un seul encan, le plus gros revenu brut enregistré et une moyenne de vente à la hausse si on compare à l’année précédente. Je crois que la tendance pour les taureaux Charolais se maintiendra et qu’on poursuivra notre montée en puissance des parts du marché commercial pour fournir ces éleveurs qui recherchent à produire les croisements recherchés. Ces veaux croisés identifiable de race Charolais se sont mieux vendus lors des ventes d’automne, et ce, à travers le pays. Rappelez-vous que c’est le prix par veau qui doit être comparé et non le prix à la livre. Depuis mon dernier éditorial, on a participé à quatre ventes en Ontario pendant quatre fin de semaines consécutives. Entre deux de ces ventes, Candace et moi en avons profité pour aller faire un tour dans les maritimes au lieu de retourner à Régina. Nous avons couvert 1957 kilometres et avons visité neuf troupeaux en cinq jours. Candace n’a pas appréciée toute cette route mais je lui ai laissé la chance de jouer la touriste et de manger beaucoup de fruits de mer. Il fut vraiment plaisant de faire la rencontre de nouveaux éleveurs et de revoir des troupeaux visité auparavant. L’hospitalité des Maritimes était excellente et nous remercions tout ces fermes pour leur accueil. Nous allons aider l’Association Charolais des Maritimes à être le lieu de rencontre pour le rassemblement de l’Association Canadienne Charolais 2019 ainsi que notre réunion annuelle en juin prochain. Notez bien la date du 5 au 9 juin à votre calendrier. Plus de détails seront communiqués bientôt. Cette rencontre s’étendra sur trois 8

provinces. Des visites à la ferme sont à l’horaire, du radeau de marée, de la voile, une fête du homard et plus encore. La dernière fois que l’Association des Maritimes furent nos hôtes, cela fut une expérience mémorable et nous espérons recréer le même résultat. À la mi-octobre, j’ai participé aux réunions très intéressantes du conseil de l’ACC qui se tenait à Calgary. L’association travaille fort pour s’assurer de la progression de notre race. Les annonces publiés à l’endos du magazine Cattleman sont conçues avec des slogans qui s’impriment dans l’esprit de l’industrie. Le comité de l’avancement de la race encouragent les éleveurs à utiliser d’avantage l’échographie de carcasse (indice EPD) et de s’assurer de fournir les données nécessaires. Ces données sont primordiales pour s’assurer de la précision des indices EPD des carcasses. Ces données sont très basses pour le moment. J’espère que très bientôt, nous pourrons utiliser la traçabilité pour vérifier un plus grand nombre de carcasses jusqu’à l’usine d’emballage qui nous aiderais à accumuler une multitude de ces données. Le comité prévoit développer un séminaire en ligne pour expliquer comment nous fournir toutes sortes de données, enregistrer vos informations EPD et aussi une base de données avec l’indice du père terminal. Plus d’information à ce sujet dans le texte “Keeping track’’ dans ce numéro et dans le futur. Le comité a approuvé ma demande de créer une fondation Charolais qui aurait pour but de ramasser des fonds pour approfondir les recherches, l’éducation et les projets pour les jeunes éleveurs qui sont reliés à la race. Plusieurs autres races bovines ont ce type de fondation bien établie et ont été une réussite dans le passé au profit du développement continu de leur race. Gardez l’oeil ouvert pour la concrétisation de cette fondation. L’exposition National d’Edmonton Charolais Banner • December 2018

fut un grand succès avec la participation de plusieurs éleveurs qui ont fait bourdonner, non seulement l’étable des Charolais mais l’exposition en entier avec le Club des Joueurs (Player’s Club). Toute l’équipe des exposants et l’Association Charolais de l’Alberta méritent nos félicitations. Cet évènement fut rempli de succès et nous espérons qu’il sera répété dans le futur. J’aimerais vous parlez de ce que j’appelle l’aveuglement de la grange. Le symptôme le plus commun sont les producteurs qui sont tellement impliqué dans leur propre entreprise et qui oublient de prendre un peu de recul pour remarquer les points où des améliorations pourraient être apportées. Ce problème se retrouve dans tous les niveaux de producteurs. Comme éleveurs, demandez l’opinion de vos clients ou à un de vos compagnon de ferme les points que lequel cette personne pense que vous devriez porter attention. Vous pouvez retourner la faveur à cette personne et lui décrire des suggestions sur son propre troupeau. Une opinion objective vue de l’extérieur vous aidera à vous améliorer et rentabiliser votre entreprise. À travers les années, j’ai vu certains producteurs acheter le même style de problème dans leur troupeau au lieu de lâcher prise sur un élément qui fonctionne et essayer de corriger une autre pour améliorer leur base fondatrice de leur troupeau. Être éleveurs représente beaucoup de compromis et il ne faut jamais perdre le but final en corrigeant les même choses à répétition. Mon truc de commercialisation de ce mois est de toujours inclure votre tatouage de troupeau en entier dans toute publication sur les réseaux sociaux ou même lorsque vous faite parvenir un courriel qui contient une photo. Une bonne identification peut aider un acheteur à se procurer plus d’informations, surtout si cette tête possède un enregistrement. Ces suite à la page 15

CHOMIAK CALF RAISES $8500

Calves for Cancer Auction John Chomiak

Hooch and I are survivors in a way which attracted us to this project, Calves for Cancer, where a minimum 50 farmers would donate a calf in recognition of Cross Cancer Centre’s 50 year anniversary. The support from the farming community was amazing, exceeding 70 calves. Hooch is ¾ Charolais and ¼ Speckle Park. An unfortunate accident occurred at our farm where Hooch’s mother died, so I took over caring and feeding him, commencing with bottle feeding and progressing onward as Hooch grew. He has become a pet but is willing to participate in this worthy project. On the personal side, I became well acquainted with the Cross Cancer Centre. It was early 2016 when I concluded 40 radiation treatments at the Cross. When my Prostrate PSA number grew to an alarming level of 8.8, my family doctor insisted on further testing. The diagnosis indicated cancer (shocking news) and the 40 day treatment began once the scheduling 5 months later was determined. Once the radiation treatments were concluded, the first test is 6 months later and the PSA number dropped to .5. At this meeting my cancer doctor informed me that he did not need to see me anymore and I was turned over to a monitoring doctor. So a year later the PSA test

indicated .2 and this past May, the PSA test indicated .1. I feel I am cancer free and I am anxious to see what the test in May 2019 will indicate. I commend my family doctor who insisted on PSA testing as I aged beyond 50. Catching my cancerous prostrate at an early stage resulted that today I can say, I am cancer free. So guys, get tested early and regularly. Four calves were auctioned at Northlands (Farm Fair) generating a sum of $25,900. Hooch, one of them, generated a sum of $8,500, made up by: • $3,500 from Northlands, who sent Hooch back tothe ring for resale • $2,000 from Josh Gillis, who kept Hooch. Josh is John’s grandson, who decided that Hooch will remain at the

Chomiak farm. Hooch will become the Farm Mascot • $1,000 from Stephen Mandel, Leader of the Alberta Party • $1,000 from Ken Cantor, Primavera Development Group • $1,000 from AAA (Alberta Association of Architects) The Cross Cancer Institute has been there for northern Alberta families since 1968. As they celebrate 50 years, CFCW 840 AM Radio was hoping to find 50 ranchers to donate a calf to our Calves for Cancer campaign. Thanks to farm families across Alberta, they managed to surpass that goal with over 70 calves! When all 70 calves go to market this fall, the proceeds will be donated to the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Cross.

HERD HEALTH

Scratching in Cattle Roy Lewis DVM

With the advent of the reliable pour-on and injectable endectocides, which are on the market today, scratching from lice or mange is a very rare occurrence unless a fall treatment was not done, or we have biting lice or mange about. As a veterinarian we are sometimes called on to investigate apparent breaks in these products efficacies. I know we have observed a lot about cattle’s scratching behavior, which we never knew before, since lice or mange were always blamed in the past. A visual exam of discussion over the fence is not enough when there is hair loss. We examine several affected animals and usually clip an area surrounding the worst affected areas. Careful visualization by the naked eye, or with a magnifying glass, can detect some external parasites if they are present. Deeper skin scrapings can be done as well because we don’t want to miss any mange mites if they are present. Failures are rare, but if they do occur usually either biting lice (Damalinia (Bovicola) Bovis ) or chorioptic mange are the culprits. This occurs because both these external parasites are surface feeders and move around a lot, so control may not be quite 100 percent. Also, transmission is quicker so new introductions can easily spread it around. A common question asked is when and how long ago new introductions happened and whether or not they had been previously treated. This, together with proper dosage and administration based on accurate body weights, are extremely important in treating external parasites. Guns for applying endectocides now disperse the product more accurately over the back. Newer products specifically for lice have been developed such as Saber, Boss or Cy-lence or products for cattle oilers such as Ectiban. On all these products, 22

stick to the dosage. Some also have indications for ticks, which we are seeing more of on cattle across western Canada. In BC for instance, ranchers may spray the cattle with the ectiban (permethroid-permethrin) product under the advisement of their veterinarian. As with all the external parasites that move or intermittently feed, contact of the insecticide with the insect provides the best results. Most products have a request for a repeat of treatment in two to three weeks if necessary. One should remember if you need to treat more frequently, the problem may be something different than external parasites. Also, too many treatments, too close together, could potentially be detrimental to young bulls’ semen quality for reproduction, so we again want to stick with the recommended dosage and method of administration. Regular dosage of the permethrins has been proven to be non-detrimental to semen quality and testicular development. Other causes of scratching are varied in the herds we see during these investigations. Ringworm commonly seen around the eyes and head, if severe enough, will cause irritation and scratching especially in young cattle. One has to look closely if in other locations to visualize the circular lesions. One treatment for ringworm will usually get them on the road to recovery. Bale processors and other grinders do a great job chopping and dispersing feed but the only negative is a lot of dust and/or debris ends up in the hair. In warmer weather with sweating, this scurf and debris can cause intense itchiness in certain locations. Once cattle start rubbing, soreness and bleeding occur adding to the problem. A lot of these itching episodes will often follow unseasonably warm periods in the winter after cattle have haired up. Free living mites in grain or on bedding also cause cattle to itch. Producers will lock cattle out when Charolais Banner • December 2018

bedding or provide oilers or rubbing brushes to help to remove the fine dust debris and straw. Certain individual or genetic lines of cattle may be allergic to certain feeds or molds present. Allergic reactions will vary in severity but many will cause reddening of the skin and swelling associated with itchiness. Here the allergen must be removed before recovery can happen. Nutritionally the skin must be healthy otherwise itching, as a result of deficiencies may be a possibility. Trace minerals should always be fed as part of the overall nutritional package. Important ones in skin health are zinc, copper and vitamins especially vitamin A. Unhealthy skin also allows various bacteria to take hold. These infections can be intensely itchy and spread locally. Show cattle if washed must be thoroughly rinsed otherwise the residual soaps can cause irritation or allergic reactions. Some rubbing and licking is part of cattle’s natural grooming process. It is only when this occurs in excess, with hair loss and damage to the skin, that we should be concerned and investigate. Constant irritation regardless of the cause can result in weight loss and a predisposition to other diseases. Cattle will decrease feed consumption and anemia can result from the blood loss especially if sucking lice are involved. Hair loss removes cattle’s insulative coat. In deep freeze weather this is stressful and it then requires more energy to keep warm. By routinely using a specific lice treatment, most parasitic causes of scratching will be minimized. If scratching continues, have the problem fully diagnosed so preventative measures can be taken to eliminate the problem and prevent further skin damage and hair loss. This may involve close examination, a skin scraping, or even a skin biopsy. continued on page 24

OBITUARY

Neil W. Dennis Neil W. Dennis passed away November 4, 2018 in his 69th year after a long and hard fought struggle. A lover of hockey and renowned defenseman one would say, "He finished his check!" Neil enjoyed his association with the Canadian Charolais Association owning and operating as Sunnybrae Polled Charolais in the 1980s and 90s. He was a long standing member of

the SE Sask. Charolais Breeders, of which he served as president for a time. Neil took great pride in the Sunnybrae Bull Test Station which he operated for approximately 10 years. Change is constant. Introduced to Holistic Management in 1998, Neil quickly realized that the health of an animal was determined by the health of the soil the forage grew from. His foray into ultra-high stock density grazing to physically improve soil health changed his world and attracted the attention of cattlemen

the world over. Neil is survived by his mother Ruth Dennis (widow of Ted Dennis), his wife of 43 years, Barbara, and their 3 children: Brad (Lynsay), Boyd (Lisa), Neila and 4 hockey playing grandsons, Caden, Chase, Vann and Barrett, all of whom he was immensely proud.

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

On behalf of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council, I want to congratulate the Charolais breeders for exhibiting an exceptional group of cattle throughout the fall show season. The interest in Charolais genetics from international buyers was strong and through the efforts of outstanding breeding programs across Canada, will be into the foreseeable future. It is always interesting to discuss our cattle and breeds with international visitors. The quality of our genetics, the passion our breeders have for their livestock and the strength of our production systems are something that should be a great source of pride for everyone involved in raising beef cattle across our great country. At Farmfair and Agribition we were pleased to host international visitors from a number of countries. The most prominent of which were China, Mexico and Australia. These are

markets where CBBC and its members have focused their efforts in recent years. China and Mexico which are considered developing markets, both have a new government mandates to improve the quality of beef genetics in order to be self- sufficient in beef production. These markets are very different both culturally and in structure but represent an incredible opportunity for the Canadian seedstock sector across breeds. We will continue to work along-side breed associations, genetic companies, service providers and breeders to capitalize on these market opportunities which in turn provides dollars back to purebred breeders. An important additional market where we were not able to host an incoming delegation to shows this fall is Kazakhstan. However, we had discussions with their officials as part of a joint Kazak-Canada series of government meetings in June of 2018. It was indicated that they are set to

announce a new round of funding focused on the importation of beef cattle. This funding is to help Kazak beef producers offset the cost of importing live cattle from countries such as Canada, USA and Australia. This is in conjunction with their new ten-year plan to improve livestock production in Kazakhstan, which will help utilize their vast grass lands and cropland. Geographically Kazakhstan is situated between Russia and China and with the new super highway ‘Belt & Road Initiative’ connecting Beijing with Europe, the ease in which goods are transported by land will change the economic landscape of trade between the two nations. Beef will be a factor in trade between China and Kazakhstan as a result, but first Kazakhstan must build a strong genetic base for livestock along with infrastructure to supply the hungry Chinese market.

WE ALL NEED A LAUGH

Road Tales Candace By

Every now and then, a purely innocently -intended, quiet evening turns into something legendary. The following story is true, and no names or places have been changed to protect the innocent or guilty. Once when the U.S. National show was in Lexington, Kentucky, Helge and I met three of our Norwegian friends, Erling Gresseth, Håkon Marius Kvæken and Per Øivin Sola, for a few days of cows and visiting. One evening we wanted to go out for a good steak, so I asked our hotel reception for a recommendation. They sent us to Morton’s Steakhouse. After being at the cattle show all day, you know how we smelled, but we didn’t care. We were hungry. We took a cab to Morton’s and upon arrival were met by a rather stuffy host who asked if we had a reservation. Of course we didn’t, but he found us a table right in the center of the restaurant. It was a rather fine establishment and I could see the hotel reception had not sent us to a cheap steakhouse chain. As it was a little early for the fine dining crowd, we were the only ones seated. Our waiter took our drink order and returned with a tray of raw steaks and proceeded to tell us about each cut and asked us to place our order. Not a price was mentioned. I looked at Helge and he nodded in agreement, we knew it was going to be an expensive evening. Slight surprise - number 1. We settled in with our cocktails and were enjoying pleasant conversation as other dining guests started to arrive. Everyone else was dressed quite differently from us – shirts and

ties, dresses – no boots and jeans. I am quite sure we never shared the same perfume, but if they noticed, we didn’t notice. Slight surprise - number 2. Our meal was scrumptious. The steak was very tender and tasty. Everything was perfect. Then it happened. Håkon had been practising to become an auctioneer and on a previous meeting, we had attempted to help him with some pointers. One was to have a gavel or something he could tap in the rhythm of his cadence when he needed to breath, so things kept going. One of us nonchalantly asked how the auctioneering was going. Erling started to make some wisecracks about Håkon being an auctioneer and how important he had become in his mind. We all had a giggle, but Håkon was excited to discuss his most recent experience. In Norway, animal auctions were very slow. They were more like art auctions where people hold up a card to bid. They were so slow, they often stopped for a coffee break during a sale to wake everyone up. Håkon is a very fast-paced person and it drove him crazy. It was one of the reasons he wanted to try auctioneering. He bounces with energy. He started to explain, “I was trying to speed them up.” On his first sentence he was getting animated. “I was banging her and banging her.” As he explained he was pounding his fist on the table as if he had a gavel in his hand. The more he spoke and the more frustrated he got with the people at the auction, the louder his voice and his pounding increased. “I was banging her and banging her,” then in a much quieter tone, “but they just wouldn’t speed up.” Per started laughing a little too

hard, for the story wasn’t that humorous. Håkon was getting more and more into it and our cutlery was bouncing on the table as he went on “banging her.” Between Per’s contagious laughing and Håkon’s animation we were all laughing quite uncontrollably. Then it happened. Håkon said, “I was banging her and banging her so hard the table broke.” Big surprise – number 3. We were laughing so hard the tears were flowing and we couldn’t get air. Between gasps for air, Per managed to brokenly add, “Håkon, you must realize there are two meanings for the word banging in English.” As the light came on for Håkon and he realized what he had been doing and how it sounded, we looked around the restaurant and saw that no one else understood he was talking about an auction. Big surprise number 4. Then we really had trouble breathing. At this point, an explanation may have been in order, to assure the people around us we were not all demented beings, but laughing was far easier. We paid the large bill and joked that we should have got a cut rate for the entertainment factor and returned to our hotel. Håkon has a weekly radio show in Norway where he tells little stories that bring the farm to the urban audience. He was on the next day and he told this story. He has told this story many times when he speaks or MCs functions. He is a bit of a celebrity and if you ask any Norwegian Charolais people, they have heard this story. No surprise number 5.

INTERNATIONAL

Swedish Show Experience Shae-Lynn Evans

In October I had the opportunity to travel across the globe to Fogdegarden – a Charolais, Red Angus, and laying hen operation near Hogstad, Sweden, for some of the most memorable experiences of my life. After many hours of flying and navigating foreign airports, I arrived in Gothenburg on Sweden’s west coast, where I met up with Gustaf Sturesson, owner of Fogdegarden. We drove about 2.5 hours through the Swedish country side, which was surprisingly similar to Alberta’s landscape, only with “miniature” mountains lining the roadways. I spent a couple of days at Fogdegarden, clipping their show string of three Red Angus and one Charolais. I was very impressed with the quality of the cattle at Fogdegarden and how similar they were to the type of cattle seen in Canada. I learned that many of their genetics originated in Canada, however, Sweden stopped allowing

live animal transportation into the country as of 1995. They can still bring in semen or embryos from overseas, as long as they are from animals who have not been vaccinated with IBR, as there is no IBR in Sweden. The embryos can usually be washed, however, the semen is not permitted. Fogdegarden’s herd is roughly 60 head and is one of the larger herds of cattle in Sweden. Smaller farm size is directly related to the enormously high taxes in the country and the high cost of land to rent or own. To give some perspective, one hectare (roughly 2.5 acres) of land in Sweden would cost approximately $1000 Canadian to rent for one year. There is also a law that if one son/daughter chooses to take over his/her family farm, they must pay each of their siblings’ shares of the farm to them. Farming and raising cattle in Sweden becomes very expensive very quickly. After two days of preparation, we loaded up the trailer and headed to Jonkoping for Elmia, which is

basically the “Agribition of Sweden”. This show takes place for three days every two years and is one of only two cattle shows in Sweden. It is a very important event for purebred breeders. There were roughly 160 head of beef cattle from a variety of breeds including Hereford, Angus, Charolais, Limousin, Simmental, and Blonde d’Aquintaine. There were also quite a number of dairy cattle exhibited at Elmia. This year was the first year the livestock portion of Elmia has been run in conjunction with the tradeshow, so I was able to see some pretty interesting machinery, as well as some that was just like at home. continued on page 70

It was interesting to see the variations in technique and experience on show day. Many of the exhibitors did not do any clipping before the show and do not use any adhesives or products, as they are not sold in Sweden. Some did a bit of clipping on heads or top lines. Some exhibitors were very interested in learning the “Canadian way” and actually got me to do a clipping demo following the show to explain how to use some of the Sullivan products I had brought over from Canada. Despite the differences in preparation of the cattle for the show, most cattle were in very good condition and were high quality. The biggest difference I noticed was

in the Simmental breed; there were no blacks or reds, only the traditional colour pattern. Following the breed shows, there is a “Best in Breed” competition, which is similar to our Supreme. Fogdegarden went home with Champion and Reserve Red Angus Female, and Reserve Champion Bull. In the remaining days of my trip, I did some touring in the nearby towns and villages. We toured a massive old church and a giant Castle in Vadstena, and did some shopping in Linkoping and Hogstad for a few souvenirs. It was so cool to see all of the buildings that were built so long ago. Many were built before Canada was even a

country. Even most of the barns and farm buildings are from the 1800’s, but have been so well-kept that they almost look like new. There are so many things that made this trip so incredible, but the most memorable part will always be the kindness and hospitality I received. Gustaf and family, and all the staff at Fogdegarden were beyond generous and such a pleasure to work with. It’s truly amazing what connections can be made through our breed and our industry. I am so blessed and so honoured to have met so many incredible people through the Charolais breed. These experiences are some that I will never forget.
