POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

As I write this, I am sitting in a motel room in southern Manitoba. It is -27 degrees with a 20 km/hr wind, making it feel like -38. I hope the wind will continue to drop so it will be nicer picturing bulls today. It is January and it is Canada, so you have to expect days like this. The facilities that are required to calve, keep them alive and keep the ears on them can be strained when there is a prolonged cold snap. The barns can’t get cleaned out of newborns fast enough to make room for the next ones calving. I sat in some sessions last week at the Saskatchewan Beef Industry Conference and there was some great information. Dr. Matt Spangler, University of Nebraska, spoke on Using Genomics to Improve Cattle: Now and in the Future. With a large contingent of commercial producers at this event, it was a very easy to understand, but thought-provoking lesson using Genomics in the cattle industry. One question from the audience was ‘could genomics be used to make an EPD for foot structure?’ Like any other genomic information, you need the phenotypical data to go along with the genotypic data. If everyone had a similar scoring system and input consistent data, then yes, markers could be found for this. Very hypothetical at this point, but none the less, has producers thinking. Following him was Nathan Spickler, Spickler Ranch South, Glenfield, North Dakota. He is a purebred Angus breeder and his topic was Genomics at Work on the Ranch. He has been using genomics along with his EPDs for a number of years. He gave some great examples of how incorporating the genomic data, which shows the animals EPD as if there is are number of progeny on the ground has helped. One young bull he thought was great with great 6

numbers came back with a higher than expected BW EPD after the genomic testing. This took the bull out of the purebred breeder category and he kept and used the bull. What he found was the actual BW EPD of the bull was even higher than the GEPD showed. It proved to him that with high accuracy genomic EPD, they can really be a useful tool in your operation. He does all his heifers as well and does some culling with it, but more so uses the information to know how he should mate those females to the best advantage in their offspring. He still stressed that you need to select your replacement heifers using cow family information, structure and all the other tools, not just the GEPD. Dr. Sylvain Charlebois from Dalhousie University; “The rise of the conscious carnivore? The good, the bad and the awfully ugly.” His talk focused on the new food guide that was recently released and how animal protein producers need to find ways to work with other food groups to promote the consumption and overcome the negative tone towards meat. For example team up with pulse producers and push recipes that include both pulse and meat for a more nutritional meal such as chili or burritos, etc. He was a very knowledgeable speaker on the food trends in Canada and around the world. I was visiting with a beef producer friend in Norway who sits on the national all breeds board and they are in the same struggle to overcome the negative thoughts about meat and how it hurts the environment and the push to vegetarianism by so many. We really live in a global community now and there are many pushing that direction. The final speaker was Timothy Caulfied, author, professor and realist: When Celebrity Culture and Science Collide. If you have Netflix you can find some of his talks there or on YouTube. Well worth the viewing of Charolais Banner • February 2019

how celebrities are beating out science in the food debate. In this issue you will find the Female sale chart from last fall ,which ended up stronger than expected in many people’s eyes with the feed shortage in areas. It shows the strength of the breed’s bull sales as the interest for the spring is definitely strong. There were some new breeders buying last fall and many expanding their herd size or just adding quality to the top of their existing program. In any case, the market was very buoyant. On the cover and at the back of this issue, you will also find the Banner of Show Sires (B0SS) tabulations and which animals and sires ranked at the top of the BOSS shows. As there is no EPD for eye appeal or structural soundness, the show ring still has a place as one more tool in the selection process. As the old saying goes “I like performance cattle, but I still want to be able to look at them with pleasure when I feed them every day.” You will also read that Mel Reekie, General Manager of the Canadian Charolais Association is leaving and moving back to Ontario to pursue new opportunities. Her last day will be February 8th and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors. In June, the CCA AGM will be held in the Maritimes. See the ad in this issue, registration information will also be posted on our website. This August the Irish Charolais Society is hosting the Charolais-Charbray Technical Conference and it looks like a great program. There is an ad in this issue or go to the Charolais International website to get full details. If you have ever thought about going to Ireland, this may be a great opportunity, and all are welcome. Until next time, Helge

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs Helge By

J’écris ces quelques lignes de ma chambre d’hôtel au sud du Manitoba. Dehors, le thermomètre indique -27 degrés celsius avec un facteur vent de 20 km/h qui refroidi le tout pour une température ressentie de -38 degrés celsius. J’espère que le vent se calmera car ce serait plus plaisant pour moi qui photographie les taureaux pour les catalogues de ventes. Nous sommes en janvier et au Canada, donc ce n’est pas une surprise. Les installations nécessaires pour s’assurer que les vêlages se portent bien et que les veaux gardent leurs oreilles sont mises à l’épreuve lors d’une vague de grand froid. La plupart des étables n’ont pas le temps de se faire nettoyer que le prochain lot de veaux arrive. J’ai participé à séance d’information, la semaine passée, lors de la conférence de l’industrie du boeuf en Saskatchewan. Le Dr. Matt Spangler nous a fait part de l’évolution des profils génomiques et l’utilisation future de ceux-ci pour améliorer nos troupeaux. Avec un contingent de plusieurs producteurs commerciaux, la conférence fut très facile à comprendre et a su susciter une réflexion sur la manière que ces données pourraient être utilisées dans notre industrie. Une des questions d’un participant était: ‘Peux-t’on se servir des EPD génomiques pour améliorer la conformation des pieds?” Comme toute autre information génomique, nous avons besoins des données phénotypiques pour accompagner les données génotypiques. Nous souhaitons que toutes les données soient rassemblées de la même façon, créant une feuille de pointage consistante et ainsi, les marqueurs génétiques pourraient être décodés. C’est un scénario hypothétique qui a su faire réfléchir les producteurs. Le conférencier suivant était Nathan Spickler du ranch Spickler sud, de Glenfield au Dakota du Nord. Nathan

est un éleveur d’Angus pur-sang et le nom de sa conférence s’intitulait: ‘La génomique au travail sur notre ranch’. Il se sert des données génomiques accompagné des ses indices EPD depuis plusieurs années et il nous a fait part de la manière dont il les utilisent. Les choses sont beaucoup plus facile quand on a beaucoup de progénitures autour pour comparer. Parmi son troupeau, il a avait un jeune taureau qui promettait lorsqu’on regardait son EPD régulier. Après l’analyse des données génomiques, son indice de poids à la naissance était plus haut que celui son son EPD régulier. Il a quand même garder ce taureau mais pas dans le champs avec les vaches pur-sang. Si on avance de plusieurs mois pour enfin se rendre compte que les données de ce taureau étaient encore plus élevées que le GEPD (EPD avec indice génomique) l’avait prédit. Pour Nathan, ceci l’a convaincu de l’exactitude des GEPD et comment ces données peuvent vraiment aider vos entreprises. Il se sert aussi des ces données pour trier ses génisses et aussi maximiser la possibilité des progénitures en choisissant le bon taureau pour chacune d’elles. Il souligne aussi l’importance de porter attention au lignées familiales, la conformation et tout autre outil disponible, pas seulement les données GEPD. Le Dr. Sylvain Charlebois de l’université Dalhousie nous a présenté sa conférence: ‘La hausse des carnivore sensibles? Le bon, moins bon et le vachement laid’. Cette présentation ciblait le tout nouveau guide alimentaire et comment les producteurs de protéines animales et les autres groupes doivent promouvoir la consommation de protéines animales et surmonter les idéologies négatives envers la viande. Par example, développer des recettes avec des producteurs légumineuses qui incluent les deux éléments pour un repas encore plus nutritif comme du chili ou des burritos. M. Charlebois

était très bien informés sur les tendances alimentaires au Canada et dans le reste du monde. Lors d’une visite avec un ami qui est producteur en Norvège, aussi membre d’un comité bovin national regroupant toutes les races, il m’a fait part de la nouvelle négativité entourant la consommation de viande et comment cette tendance endommage l’environnement si le végétarisme continu d’être poussé dans cette direction. Notre dernier conférencier était l’auteur, professeur et réaliste Timothy Caulfied avec sa présentation intitulée: ‘Collision parmi les célébrités, la culture et la science’. Certaines de ses présentations de retrouve même sur Netflix et Youtube. Ce visionnement nous montre comment les célébrités corrigent la science dans le grand débat alimentaire. À voir! Dans cette publication, vous retrouverez les statistiques des ventes de femelles de l’an passé. Les résultats attendus ont été beaucoup plus haut que prévu surtout si on considère la pénurie de foin et grains dans certains endroits. La force des taureaux Charolais est démontrée par l’intérêt aux ventes du printemps qui approchent. Plusieurs acheteurs aux ventes d’automne prévoyait agrandir leur troupeau ou encore améliorer la qualité de leur programme. Quelque soit la raison, le marché est prospère. Sur la couverture et l’endos du magazine, vous y trouverez le compte rendu des taureaux qui ont participé aux expositions BOSS (bannière des taureaux exposants). Aucun EPD ou test de solidité structurelle nécessaire, les expositions sont encore un bon outil de comparaison lorsqu’on choisit un animal. Comme le dicton: ‘J’aime les animaux de performance mais je veux aussi être capable de les admirer quand je les nourris à tous les jours.’ Nous parlons aussi du départ de Mel Reekie, directrice générale de l’association Canadienne Charolais. Mel retournera en Ontario pour suite à la page 10

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

The year ahead is sure to be full of change and new opportunities for everyone. The cattle industry is always full of surprises and this year will be no exception, fortunately we have lot to look forward to in 2019. On behalf of CBBC, I want to wish everyone a successful bull sale and calving season. In 2014 the national and provincial beef organizations implemented Canada’s National Beef Strategy. This was a monumental shift in how industry organizations interacted and worked with each other. It was one of the first time that industry organizations worked collectively toward common goals and set measurable targets with defined outcomes. The results reports are available for viewing at www.beefstrategy.com, where successes and accomplishments over the past four years are highlighted. A few of my personal favorites are the establishment of the Canadian Beef Industry Conference as the meeting place for the Canadian beef industry. This conference has exceeded expectations and will continue to become increasingly important in the coming years. The creation of the Canadian Beef Advisors which is comprised of leaders from the national beef organizations has

provided a forum for strategic collaboration that benefits the industry and not any single organization. Also, the increase in the Beef Check-Off was critical to provide funding for activities in the strategy. This resulted in the ability to implement the Public Trust and Stakeholder Engagement team. As we move forward, they will proactively address issues from animal welfare activists, weak misleading science and more. This is critical to our ability to continue producing the best beef in the world. These are only a select few of the many highlights. There are multiple other activities and outcomes from the strategy that have had a positive impact on the beef industry and will continue to do so well into the future. The process for renewing Canada’s National Beef Strategy is underway with a projected fall 2019 release date. This is a continued collaborative effort of the national and provincial beef organizations intended to build on the successes of the previous strategy and position the industry for a profitable and sustainable future. A number of activities from the 2014 strategy are ongoing and will remain priorities. One of the biggest shifts will be the integration of a of a Total Quality Management (TQM) system into the industry. Essentially this is a process that facilitates the system wide

collection, evaluation and dissemination of information along the beef value chain. New technologies are now available which create an opportunity to streamline the flow of information and can be utilized in ways we previously never thought possible. This will be of particular importance to purebred producers especially in how we utilize these new technologies and information to reshape how we make progress in genetic improvement. There is an opportunity to rethink how we approach our system of genetic improvement that will provide seedstock, commercial, feedlots, and packers with enhanced tools to identify cattle that are more profitable and meet preferences of modern global consumers.

Mel Reekie, General Manager

As I made the move to Calgary, Alberta in April 2012, I was an excited CCYA Alumni looking forward to working with the Canadian Charolais Association as part of my next adventure in life. Little did I know just what opportunities laid ahead for me. Over the past few years I’m happy to have been involved and witness to the momentum that the Charolais breed has enjoyed. This momentum is a true testament to the value and product that our breed has to offer both the seedstock sector and the commercial cattleman. Those Charolais calves are IDENTIFIABLE and they yield profit, plain and simple. There’s high demand for Charolais bulls and this can be seen through the Whole Herd Enrollment trends over the last number of years; we’ve been on the incline and in 2017 hit a ten year high of 24,000+ females. As leaders in the industry, a number of years ago the Charolais Association moved to a Whole Herd Enrollment format. Since my time at the CCA, we too have continued to push onward for the betterment of the breed. Among many things, we’ve transitioned to SNP technology for DNA, upgraded our Registry system to an online format with a user-friendly approach, updated our Calving Ease EPD to a better reflection of what’s happening in the field, and in keeping to industry standard, taken the long path of developing genomically enhanced EPDs for improved progression of our genetics. One of the greatest strengths in our breed is the people. Our breeders care, our breeders are passionate, and our breeders lead the industry. From day one, I was welcomed into the Charolais family in my new capacity. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed serving you, the members in the best manner that I could and to have helped in anyway to keep moving the breed forward.

Representing the Canadian Charolais Association at industry events was always a pleasure as the question was never Why a Charolais, but always, Why not a Charolais? It was easy in that I could always be proud to be representing our group and our genetics both domestically and abroad. The comradery of Charolais breeders reaches international borders and my first taste of international Charolais events was at the 2014 World Charolais Congress in France. I was gobsmacked at a variety of things – the adaptation of the cattle, the innovation of the breeders and the different cultural practices, but the one thing that stands out everywhere you go is that Charolais ties us altogether as one. Cultures mesh, you break bread with your neighbour, and you share the passion for the Charolais breed. How cool was it that I could learn these things in the French countryside, the birthplace of Charolais? I was fortunate to have taken this further over the years and travelled through countless airports both in Canada and beyond, to represent you, the Charolais breeders at various industry activities. Charolais adapt to any climate and condition as seen throughout the weather extremes in Australia and Mexico, you can find Charolais cattle thriving along the fjords of Norway, and I’ve shared your breed successes on educating trade missions to Turkey and China. I encourage you as a Charolais breeder to participate in National and International Charolais events, you might not only find outcross genetics for your program, but also a lifelong friend with those you meet. Now, in pursuit of new opportunities, my next chapter is taking me back to Ontario. As reflection fills my heart, I know that it’s been a true delight to serve the Canadian Charolais Association, a time I will cherish for many years to come. See you down the road.

Mel Reekie, directeur général

Lors de mon déménagement à Calgary, en Alberta, en avril 2012, je n’étais qu’une ancienne junior qui avait hâte de travailler pour l’Association canadienne Charolais, sans savoir que mes nouvelles aventures deviendraient des opportunités extraordinaires. Au cours des dernières années, je suis heureuse d'avoir été impliquée dans l'élan que la race Charolais connait. Cet élan est un véritable témoignage de la valeur et du produit que notre race a à offrir à la fois au secteur pur-sang qu’au secteur commercial. Les veaux Charolais sont identifiables et ils rapportent des profits, simples et clairs. Il y a une forte demande pour les taureaux Charolais et ceci est confirmé par l’entremise des tendances à la hausse des enrôlements de troupeau au cours des dernières années, qui ont frappé leur sommet de 10 ans en 2017 avec 24,000 femelles en inscriptions. En tant que leader de l'industrie, il y a un certain nombre d'années, l'Association Charolais a changé pour un format d’enrôlement complet du troupeau. Pendant mon mandat à l’association, nous avons aussi continué à pousser vers l'avant pour l'amélioration de la race avec des projets de grande envergure. Nous avons passé à la technologie SNP pour l'ADN, nous avons mis à niveau notre système d’enregistrement avec accès en ligne avec une approche conviviale, nous avons ajusté le EPD pour la facilité de vêlage pour mieux représenter qu’est-ce-qui se passe vraiment dans les troupeaux canadiens, et nous avons suivi les tendances de l'industrie, en entreprenant le long chemin du développement des EPD génomiquement rehaussés pour améliorer la progression de notre génétique. Malgré qu’il y ait eu plusieurs autres accomplissements, je me souviendrais le plus de ceux-ci. L'une des plus grandes forces de notre race est son monde. Nos éleveurs sont passionnés, et nos éleveurs sont des leaders dans l'industrie. Dès le premier jour, j'ai été très bien accueilli dans la famille Charolais. J'ai vraiment aimé servir les membres, et en poussant toujours la Charolais Banner • February 2019

race vers l’avant, j’ai démontré mon engagement sincère. Ce fut un plaisir de représenter l'Association canadienne Charolais aux événements de l'industrie et pour moi la question n’a jamais été « pourquoi le Charolais? », mais toujours, « pourquoi pas? ». C’est avec facilité et fierté que je vous ai représenté et que j’ai promu votre génétique à la fois au Canada qu’à l'étranger. La camaraderie des éleveurs Charolais défonce toutes frontières et mon initiation aux événements internationaux Charolais, a été au Congrès mondial de Charolais 2014 en France. J'ai été engloutie à une variété de choses comme l'adaptation du bétail, l'innovation des éleveurs et les différentes pratiques culturelles, mais la seule chose qui se distingue partout où vous allez, c'est que les animaux Charolais nous tiennent étroitement ensemble. Quelle expérience magnifique que de se sensibiliser aux différences culturelles pour en partagent un repas avec votre voisin et notre passion commune pour la race Charolais, tout en jouissant du paysage de la campagne française, le berceau de Charolais! Les années qui suivent, m’ont mené à voyager pour l’association à travers de nombreux pays et d'innombrables aéroports au Canada et au-delà. Le Charolais s’adapte à tout climat et condition comme on le voit tout au long des extrêmes météorologiques en Australie et au Mexique, vous pouvez trouver des bovins Charolais prospères le long des fjords de la Norvège, et j'ai partagé vos réussites lors de missions commerciales en Turquie et en Chine. Je vous encourage à participer à des événements nationaux et internationaux Charolais, vous pourriez non seulement trouver de la nouvelle génétique pour votre programme, mais aussi y faire des amitiés à vie. Maintenant, mon destin me mène à la recherche de nouvelles possibilités, et je retourne en Ontario. Mes réflexions sur mes années au sein de l'Association canadienne Charolais confirment que ce fut un privilège et un honneur de vous avoir servi. Un chapitre de ma vie que je n’oublierai jamais. Au plaisir de vous revoir un jour.

HERD HEALTH

Treating Individual Beef Cows to Increase the Reproductive Rate Roy Lewis DVM

As herds get bigger and electronic ID tags get used more for record keeping, more attention can also be given to individual cow medicine. We can learn lots from our colleagues in dairy production about looking after individual cows. Health and fertility go hand in hand. If by paying attention and potentially treating cows with everything from inappetance to mild uterine infection, you increase the chances of them conceiving when they are supposed to in the breeding season. As we all know lots of things need to be in order to get cows through calving to breeding again within 60-90 days. By utilizing good observational skills, record keeping and a plan to examine and potentially treat or supplement these cows, the results could be higher conception rates overall. A list of cows to closely examine after calving and at least a couple weeks before breeding needs to be made and the time set aside to work on these cows. The list of cows should include, but not limited to, cows which twinned, had an assisted calving, prolapsed uterus, fetotomy, retained placenta or have a uterine discharge. Any which are low in body condition score, were treated for metabolic diseases such as milk fever, have bloody urine, a swollen udder or generally appear off, should be looked at. If their calf is doing poorly from possibly not enough milk again an examination is in order. Lameness is caused by pain so any painful condition needs to be treated, as body condition will be run down. Pain leads to high cortisol levels that have a negative effect on fertility. As you can see this may contain a large list but if a clinical examination leads to a more specific diagnosis, the treatment your veterinarian prescribes may be the answer. Not only could 24

milk production go up and the calf do better, a cow on a rising plane of nutrition is much more likely to conceive when bred. For calving related issues and retained placentas, your veterinarian may palpate the cow to determine whether an endometritis or endometriosis is present. From there treatment could run from intrautuerine infusion to antibiotics systemically to short cycling the cow and bringing her into heat to cleanse the uterus. These variables depend on the veterinarian’s choice and the severity of the infection. I once followed a herd that experienced a high twinning rate. The conception rate was good in the herd overall but only 50% in the cows which had twins conceived. In today’s beef herds with good nutrition twinning (because the calves are born early or a bit premature) often a retained placenta is the result. It is a fact of life but managing these highly fertile cows will hopefully keep more in your herd. Hard dystocias or premature births also increase the retained placenta rate. These cows should ALL be recorded and examined at a later date. The first sign of many conditions that is most obvious to many people is weight loss. If a large number of cows are experiencing this then nutrition or parasites may be the culprit. Individual cows may have individual ailments. Ones such as kidney infection, peritonitis or wooden tongue may have treatments that can be curative. If the cow recovers in body condition in time they may conceive. This is where early intervention and the correct diagnosis and treatment result in the lost weight being gained back. Others such as severe mastitis, Johne’s disease or chronic pneumonia can best be solved by early diagnosis and shipping for salvage value if possible. This is where your veterinarian with experience will Charolais Banner • February 2019

know the expected prognosis, recovery rate and whether reoccurrence may be a possibility. Keep in mind older cows start loosing teeth and dentition could be the cause of the weight loss. These are better not rebred as even if conceive the condition could significantly worsen by the following year. With later calving cows, retained placenta or hard pulls the possibility of palpation before breeding season and potentially bringing them into heat with prostaglandins may be a wise decision. With palpation your veterinarian can determine if cycling is starting to occur and if there is any rudimentary infection present in the uterus. From there the cow may be infused with appropriate approved antibiotics directly into the uterus. There may be a need for systemic antibiotics in some cases and the prostaglandin should bring the cow into heat. Cycling is a cleansing process so we are simply upping the odds this cow/heifer will conceive. As raising replacements is costlier and many want to increase their herds the one way is driving the pregnancy rate up by attending to the health of the uterus. We all know twins if both sucking the mother pull down body condition so extra effort put into cross adopting these cows may also lead to higher pregnancy rates. Lots of things to consider but some attention paid to this group of cows after calving and a couple weeks before breeding may yield benefits. Some uterine infusions can even be given hours after breeding so that by the time the fertilized egg gets back to the uterus at day seven the infection is cleared up. If some attention is paid to examining and treating problems or weight loss conditions before breeding, the effort could be rewarded by more pregnancies. Cases not worth continued on page 25

2018 B.O.S.S. SHOW BULL HONOURS We would like to commend all the Charolais Exhibitors in 2018 for a job well done. A great amount of effort and expense goes into exhibiting cattle. We often wonder how many of us realize the spin offs and the free promotion the breed receives from these few breeders who carry the torch for the Charolais industry. Congratulations on a great year and thank you! The Banner Of Show Sires, or B.O.S.S., was developed in 1984 and is administered by the Charolais Banner. It is the only purebred publication that sponsors such a program. The B.O.S.S. program was set up as a method of keeping track of the winnings of the Charolais animals in the show ring. The shows that receive B.O.S.S. designation are decided by the Charolais Banner and spread out evenly across Canada. B.O.S.S. Points are awarded accordingly: BY CATEGORY 20 pts. Grand Champion 15 pts. Res. Grand Champion 10 pts. Sr. & Jr Champions 5 pts. Res Sr & Jr. Champion

BY CLASS 10 pts. – 1st 8 pts. – 2nd 6 pts. – 3rd 4 pts. – 4th 2 pts. – 5th

Shows with 80 plus entries received double points; 40 plus entries received full points; 30 – 39 entries received ¾ points and less than 30 entries receive ½ points. The B.O.S.S. program has become an effective method of recognizing the most popular bull and female on the show road each year. The B.O.S.S. Chart is very detailed and takes hours for our administration to ensure accuracy. We do believe the chart provides a number of great results in which we can base decisions. After all, popularity of type is a very important marketing tool. The B.O.S.S. chart breaks down points given to animals from all the B.O.S.S. designated shows and tabulates bulls gaining 10 points or more. The chart also illustrates all bulls from 1984 to present that have gained 250 points or more.

2018 B.O.S.S. PROGRAM RESULTS ARE AS FOLLOWS: (90 bulls received points) The top 5 B.O.S.S. Bulls gaining points were: 5.

the CCA will be giving $5000 directly to the National Board to use towards running the conference each year. This is instead of the funds going to the hosting province’s planning committee, and in exchange, the hosting province will keep 100% of the profits made instead of returning 50% of profits to the CCYA National Board. This will create a more consistent income for the CCYA National Board, as well as encourage sponsorship in each hosting province as the funds will stay within the province for future years.

Misleading with misinformation, hormone free and non gmo campaigns have had a huge effect on the cattle industry. With

very little positives coming from these biased ad campaigns, markets can and will suffer. Consumers have been misinformed and this has had a serious impact on how farmers raise their cattle today. A&W is leading the pack in the “No Added Hormones” campaign, also known as “better beef”, which claims they don’t buy cattle that have added hormones or Charolais Banner • February 2019

were treated with antibiotics; however, in an interview, they stated they will buy beef that was given antibiotics for therapeutic purposes, which is not included in ads. Regularly raised beef has around 2 nanograms of estrogen in a burger, while the bun has around 45,000 nanograms of estrogen in it. As Beef Cattle Research Council science 41


director, Dr. Reynold Bergen said, “A person would need to eat 3,000,000 hamburgers made with beef from implanted cattle to get as much estrogen as the average adult woman produces every day, or 50,000 hamburgers to get as much estrogen as the average adult man produces every day.” A&W has also been called out on the political side of things by none other than Past Premier Brad Wall, who expressed his opinion on the subject in an interview by saying “For me, that whole effort, that marketing campaign, it’s not based on science, it’s a gimmick, and it’s meant to scare people.” Hormones have a very positive impact for the producers who use them. Cattle require less water, less feed, and they produce less manure. All of these things are good for the environment. Hormone use is also monitored by Health Canada and standards are high because Canada exports a lot of beef to other countries. As Doug Gillespie, president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, put it “the perception isn’t fair. There are more hormones in cabbage than in beef” Now the markets are beginning to change due to the controversy over beef raised with added hormones and beef that wasn’t. The European Union has decided they will no longer accept hormone-treated beef. This will force more farmers to stop using hormones as there will be less demand for it. These ad campaigns have had a very large impact on the beef industry. One positive from these campaigns is that it has brought cattlemen together for the common goal of getting rid of these campaigns. It has also spurred other major fast food franchises to launch campaigns like McDonalds’ Canadian Beef campaign. It has also made it more possible for consumers to learn more about how their beef is raised as other companies have put out campaigns like that. In conclusion, although these campaigns do have some small positives to the beef industry, statistics and facts show these positives are unimportant to producers for the most part. The negatives have outweighed the 42

positives. With A&W’s biased partial information, the only people who gain from these campaigns are A&W, not the producers. Some producers are being forced to change the way they raise their cattle in order to meet demands for the consumers who are fed false information with their teen burger. There really is no difference between beef raised with no hormones added and beef that was. So there is no better beef... Tyson Black, Foresters Falls, ON Intermediate – 2nd place, $100

People make choices everyday on hundreds of small things. The food we buy and the places we eat are just one of the major decisions we make. When it comes to what people choose to eat there are a lot of different factors, one of which is Non Genetically Modified (GMO) versus Genetically Modified food. Our decisions as consumers are influenced by price, cultural preferences and by advertising. Advertising campaigns such as A&W’s “Better Beef” campaign have sparked debate over the past few years and has caused the beef industry in Canada to split between hormone free and non hormone free beef production. For producers in the cattle industry in Canada all influential factors must be considered and weighed for their pros and cons. There are both positive and negative effects in the promoting Non GMO beef. Hormone free campaigns do have a positive effect on the beef industry. With some restaurants advertising all the good things about the hormone free beef more people have been buying burgers. Studies show that after the A&W advertising campaign their sales have gone up 8% at their restaurants. This means that more beef is needed to be processed and made into meat. This really helps the organic or hormone free beef producers with all the promoting that has been done, but this also helps other beef producers by making consumers think more about beef, and not as much about chicken as a Charolais Banner • February 2019

supper choice. Another positive effect of hormone free advertising is the knowledge gained by consumers regarding antibiotics. Media sources of all types have commented on hormone free food and informed us that the use of antibiotics can lead to drug resistant bacteria to form in humans that consume the meat. This means that if you get sick some drugs won’t be able to help fix what’s wrong with you. Hormone free beef producers should find that the demand for their high quality product should result in a premium price. Larger profits are always a positive factor! On the other hand hormone free campaigns also have negative effects on the beef industry. For example these advertisements for Non GMO beef are not all based on science, so it may not be the whole truth, but instead a marketing gimmick. The uninformed public may think that restaurants not serving Non GMO beef are giving you meat that is “bad” for you and they won’t go back to those restaurants. Serving “Better Beef” as the A&W campaign says is misleading as hormones are naturally occurring and any additional hormones given to beef are miniscule in amount and found to be safe for human consumption by Health Canada. Another negative effect on Canadian beef producers is that restaurants such as A&W using only Non GMO beef will source their beef from other countries and not use Canadian beef due to lack of supply. If more people eat Non GMO beef it will take a lot more land and time to get the cattle up to the weight required for slaughter. Hormones given to cattle assist them to put muscle on quicker and with less food. More production costs equal higher prices to the consumer in the end. Let’s not forget the environment. When you remove technology and hormones it means you need more cattle, eating more food, on more land, producing more methane. This definitely has a negative impact on all consumers. The choice is up to you the consumer about what you eat. This


will ultimately determine how it is produced. It is up to us, the producer, to weigh in on all the facts and determine how best to raise our cattle in this “new” marketplace. The Non GMO consumer may not be the niche market in the future, they may be the norm. Jorja Beck, Milestone, SK Junior – 1st place, $125

What would I tell my friends about hormone free beef? I would tell them the truth. Hormone free beef is the biggest lie in the cattle industry, making it believed by most people. Hormone free beef has mostly cons since the lies have consumers engaged by the idea of thinking hormone free beef is healthier. Hormone free beef is the most believed lie in the cattle industry, needing more people to tell the truth about it. First of all what are hormones? Hormones help cattle grow, reproduce, and help maintain the body’s daily functions such as digesting. There are many different types of hormones including steroids, and growth hormones. Hormones are vital for the healthy growth and development of any animal. Hormones are needed to stop diseases such as mad cow disease. Hormones are also needed at castration or branding for a pain killer. Cattle need hormones, just like people do. It is important that farmers do not give hormones to animals who are about to be butchered. Without hormones, cattle have diseases. Beef has naturally occurring hormones, just like people, so there really is no such thing as hormone free beef, even though restaurants and producers advertise that. If people heard advertising saying that people

are hormone free, no one would believe it, so why are people so quick to believe there are hormone free cattle? “Hormone free beef” really just means there are no added hormones, but the average person does not get that. Many restaurants such as A&W advertise hormone free beef, when really the beef has hormones in it, or may be full of diseases. When you search on the internet about why cattle need hormones, it shows the harms of hormones, farmers overdosing on hormones and all the problems. People on the internet usually share lies and the negative about things. That is why it is so important for producers to tell the truth and educate people. In reality, cattle need hormones to live a healthy and happy life and be free from diseases, just like people. In conclusion, cattle require hormones to live a healthy life and need them in certain situations, such as when they are sick or being castrated. Hormone free beef is a lie since all animals have birth hormones. I would tell my friends that hormone free beef is not true and to not eat at restaurants that advise it. Next time you hear the term “hormone free beef” think back to eating cattle full of diseases. Educating people on the truth about hormone free beef is very important, for people’s health and cattle’s health. Tiffany Frost, Kingsey-Falls, QC Junior – 2nd place, $75

Many people have different views about hormone free beef. In my opinion adding extra hormones is not very good for you. Hormones help the cows grow easier and faster. Hormone free beef is healthier but costs more than beef

with hormones. There is not actually “hormone free” beef because the cows naturally produce hormones. If my friends asked me about hormone free beef I would tell them that in my opinion it is better to not put extra hormones in the cows. It is healthier but also cost more to have hormone free beef. It cost more because it is healthier and people want to eat healthy. Hormone free beef is healthier because the hormones have stuff in it that is not good for you. Hormone free beef is a good marketing tool to sell beef to those who want to eat natural healthy foods. I think that people would rather buy hormone free beef. Hormones help the cow’s muscles grow more easily and quickly. The hormones are put in with a small pelleted implant that is placed under the skin behind the ear. The implants are made to release the hormones slowly overtime into the bloodstream. Hormone implicated beef has never been implicated with adverse health effects in human. I would tell my friends that personally I like beef better without extra hormones. All they do is make the cow bigger but that doesn’t really make a difference. We feed our cows food to make them bigger and only put antibiotics in them if we have to. Example: they are sick. There are six hormones approved for beef production. Three are natural hormones, (Testosterone, Estrogen, and progesterone). There are three chemically similar synethetic hormones, (Melengestrol Acetate, Trenbolone Acetate, and Zeranol). These are the reasons why I would rather hormone free beef. There are also facts. Like I said I would rather hormone free beef. What do you think? Would you rather hormone free beef?
