POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

Well another spring bull sale season has come and gone and as you can see in this issue, it was another great spring. Near the back you will see our annual bull sale summary with stats on all the sales we could get information on and it shows that there were more sales this spring, more bulls sold and the average was up a little. Wow! With the drop in the commercial cattle market, down by about a 1/3 from last year, I wasn’t sure how the sales would end up, but they stayed strong to the last one. The commercial producers who calved early and sold early last fall, in some cases, made more money than the year before, but as the fall and winter went on the prices eroded. Hopefully we have put a bottom in and will see prices stabilize and be solid for the fall calf run. Calf prices are still profitable for the cow/calf producer but we had a taste of the really good prices that we were hoping would last longer. What I think the strong Charolais bull sales show is that we have gained some more market share and the demand for Charolais bulls has increased. Now not every sale was up this spring and there a few that were tougher and in some cases, for no apparent reason. A couple I attribute to great sale hangovers as I call them. This is where a breeder has a really good sale and some customers who didn’t think they could afford bulls last year go to other sales or buy privately only to find out that this year they could have bought good bulls in their price range from their regular supplier. I have seen this happen over and over again in past years and it shows that after a good sale you need to work harder to keep some of your past customers coming back to stabilize the sale the next year. The other side of it is if your advertising didn’t stir up any business, maybe you are advertising

an unmarketable product or a product nobody wants. You still have to have a product that is in demand and fed and presented to maximize your returns. Now one trend I have seen developing for a few years that is disturbing to me is the chase for smaller birth weights. This isn’t just the commercial producers buying Charolais bulls but all breeds. Now I will use some generalities here as this isn’t the case in all sales but here are some trends that I saw. In the Angus sales once you got over 85 lb., the demand and prices started to drop. In the Simmental it looked like the wall started at 95 lb. and in the Charolais sales it was at just over 100 lb. I had a visit with a prominent Red Angus breeder after a sale this spring and he commented that when he phoned his customers this spring before his sale the ones that had bought 90 to 105 lb. bulls for their cows had no problems but when his sale came they wanted them 10 pounds lighter. Why? No reason just no one wants to help anything anymore. He said after the spring bull sales you wouldn’t be able to buy a bottle of white out in Walmart and the calving books would look like a snow storm had hit them. Is this the answer? Definitely not and I think in some cases fudging the numbers has maybe caused some of this problem. If a guy had bought a bull that had a published BW of 95 lb. and he was really 110 lb. and had some difficulties, he now thinks he needs to buy a 90 lber as 95 is too much. Honesty and integrity is the most important thing in the seedstock business for long term success. Short term you may get away with it, but not long term. Now if you have been selling your customers 110 lb. bulls and he hasn’t had any problems, you need to convince him to continue this to get the added performance that will be derived from the larger birth weight bulls. My biggest concern with everyone chasing the smaller birth weights in

the commercial industry is that the cows out of the very small birth weight bulls won’t be able to have a decent size calf and the performance spirals downward. We will end up with a bunch of little, no performance cows in the commercial cowherds that need to be bred to no performance bulls which won’t add up to pounds to sell in the fall. We had some bull sales this spring where the breeders have attracted a customer base that want the bigger, more performance bulls and their sales were great. Not everyone has to chase the same market or type to be successful. Identify what you want to produce and build your customer base of stockmen that are like minded and for goodness sake don’t change what you believe in or cheat for short term gains. Bulls on offer this year were generally quite quiet. Just a word of caution, it is always better to scratch a bull on the back from the side. Training a bull to get his head scratched can lead to issues. Most stockmen don’t appreciate a bull wanting to shake its head at them for attention and this can be misinterpreted as dangerous. Don’t discount good bulls by teaching them bad habits. Many purebred breeders bought herdbulls this year. If you haven’t already, be sure to pull hair and get the preliminary work done so registering your calves will be expedient. Also, if you sold bulls to seedstock producers this spring, make sure you have hair pulled on the dams in case it is needed in the future and they are no longer around. The Alberta Charolais Association is hosting the Canadian Charolais Association Annual General Meeting in Edmonton with a day of herd tours from there. The information for it is in this issue and it will be a couple of fun filled, educational days where you can network with breeders from across the country.

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Du Champ Helge By

Eh bien oui une autre vente printanière de taureaux est déjà chose du passé, et qu’elle grand printemps. À la fin de cette édition vous pourrez voir le sommaire des ventes de taureaux et vous verrez qu’ils y avaient plus de ventes ce printemps, donc plus de taureaux vendus et une moyenne un peu plus haute. Wow, avec la baisse dans le marché du bovin commercial du 1/3 avec l’an passé, je n’étais pas sur comment les ventes se termineraient, mais elles sont restées fermes jusqu’à la dernière. Les producteurs commerciaux qui ont vêlé tôt et vendu début de l’automne dernier, dans certains cas ils ont fait plus d’argent que l’an passé, mais à la fin de l’automne et cet hiver les prix étaient à la baisse. Espérons que nous avons atteint le fond du baril et que les prix se stabiliseront, et qu’ils soient encore rentables pour les producteurs vache-veau, mais nous avons eu un avant-goût des bons prix et nous aurions voulu qu’ils durent plus longtemps. Ce que je pense des ventes pour le Charolais, nous avons gagné des parts du marché, et la demande pour les taureaux Charolais a augmenté. Il y a des ventes qui étaient moins bonnes mais sans raison apparente. Quelques une dont j’attribue le phénomène gueule de bois, c’est-à-dire , que certains éleveurs ne pensaient pas se permettre d’acheter des taureaux de leurs fournisseurs réguliers, à cause des prix élevés qu’ils avaient reçu l’année d’avant, mais cette année ils le pouvaient, mais ils ont été à d’autres ventes pour leur besoin en taureaux. J’ai vu cela se produire maintes et maintes fois au cours des dernières années, la preuve qu’après une bonne vente, vous devez travailler encore plus fort pour garder certains de vos clientsréguliers à revenir pour stabiliser votre prochaine vente. D’un autre côté si votre publicité n’attire pas les acheteurs dans votre

entreprise, c’est peut-être que vous faites de la publicité sur un produit invendable, ou d’un produit que personne ne veut. Vous devez toujours avoir un produit qui est en demande et présenté, à maximiser vos rendements. Maintenant une tendance que j’ai vu se développer depuis quelques années, et qui est très préoccupant pour moi, ce sont les petits poids à la naissance. Ce ne sont pas seulement les producteurs commerciaux qui achètent des taureaux charolais, mais c’est dans toutes les races que cela se produit. Maintenant je vais utiliser quelques généralités mais ce n’est pas dans toutes les ventes. Dans les ventes angus avec des poids supérieur à 85 lbs les prix commencent à baisser. Dans le simmentale la limite semble 95 lbs et dans les ventes charolais ils étaient un peu plus de 100lbs. J’ai visité un éleveur de angus rouge de premier plan après une vente ce printemps et il m’a fait remarquer, quand il a téléphoné à ses clients avant sa vente de ce printemps, et qui avait acheté des taureaux avec des poids à la naissance entre 90 et 105 lbsN’ont eu aucun problème au vêlage, mais lors des ventes ils voulaient des taureaux avec des poids à la naissance de 10lbs plus léger. Pourquoi? Il n’y a pas de raison, personne ne peut le dire ou veut le dire. Je pense que dans certain cas les chiffres déclarés ont peut-être causé une partie du problème. Si un producteur avait acheté un taureau avec un PN publié de 95 lbs et qu’il était plutôt 110 lbs il a eu des difficultés et il pense que acheter un taureau avec un poids à la naissance de 90 à 95 lbs est trop pesant pour ses besoins. L’honnêteté et l’intégrité est la chose la plus importante dans le secteur naissance, pour le succès à long terme. À court terme vous pouvez vous en tirer mais pas à long terme. Maintenant si dans votre vente vous aviez des poids de 110 lbs, et que vos clients n’ont pas de problèmes,

vous avez besoin de poursuivre pour obtenir la performance ajoutée qui sera tirée de taureaux avec des poids plus élevés à la naissance. Ma plus grande préocupation avec tous ceux qui cherchent des petits poids à la naissance dans le secteur commercial, est que les vaches saillies avec des taureaux ayant de faible poids à la naissance, ne seront pas en mesure d’avoir un veau décent mais plutôt un veau avec une spirale descendante. Nous allons finir par avoir des vaches peu performantes dans les élevages commerciaux, qui devraient avoir avec des taureaux performants des veaux avec des livres en plus au sevrage. Nous avons eu des ventes ce printemps qui ont attiré une clientèle parce qu’elles étaient plus grandes et qu’ils y avaient des taureaux performants, et leurs ventes ont été formidables. Pas tous les éleveurs doivent viser le même marché, identifier ce que vous voulez produire, et développer votre base de clients, qui partagent les mêmes idées, et pour l’amour de Dieu ne changez pas à ce que vous croyez, pour des gains à court terme. Les taureaux offerts cette année étaient en général très calmes, juste un petit mot d’avertissement, il est toujours mieux de grattouiller un taureau sur le côté du dos. Gratouiller la tête d’un taureau ne peut juste que vous apporté des problèmes. La plupart des éleveurs n’apprécient pas qu’un taureau ce secoue la tête à leur attention et cela peut-être interprété comme dangereux. Ne détruisez pas de bons taureaux en leur enseignant de mauvaises habitudes. Beaucoup d’éleveurs de race pure ont acheté de nouveau taureaucette année. Si vous ne l’avez pas déjà fait, prenez quelques poils, pour l’enregistrement de vos futurs veaux. En outre si vous avez vendu des taureaux reproducteurs ce printemps n’oubliez pas de prendre des poils en réserve de leur père car dans l’avenir ils ne seront plus là. suite à la page 9

Having just returned from the Charolais World Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, I can’t say enough about the Mexican hospitality, their beef cattle industry or the quality of our Canadian genetic exports. Hats off to Canadian Beef Producers! We’ve been exporting outcross genetics to Mexico that are sound, adaptable and yielding success in Mexican operations. Everywhere I turned, a link to Canada was not far. The animals themselves or the progeny they’ve produced; Canadian cattle are adding value. I was fortunate to travel with Roger Peters, a fellow Director with the Canadian Beef Breeds Council and owner of Peterosa Exports Ltd. prior to the World Congress. We had a behind the scenes look at a progressive, working ranch in Tepatitlan, MX that imports Canadian genetics across three different beef breeds. Roger handles a number of clients between Canada and Mexico and attributes the success of Canadian exports to the fertility, adaptability and frame size of the cattle. Within the Mexican herd’s genetic evaluation, there is a strong presence of Canadian genetics amongst trait leaders. Attending the Congress strengthened our current relationships and broadened our network with not only delegates and breeders from Mexico but also the globe. As we look further into 2016, plan to join us in Edmonton, AB for the Canadian Charolais Association’s Annual General Meeting, June 17 and 18. The Alberta Charolais Association is sponsoring a herd tour, at no cost to participants, for June 17. We’ll tour Johnson Charolais, Wrangler Charolais, KAY-R Land & Cattle and finish the day with a steak dinner at Circle Cee Charolais. To ensure that we have enough

seats on the bus and food on the table, please register with myself at mreekie@charolais.com or call the CCA Office at 403.250.9242 by June 15, 2016. The Annual Meeting will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn West Edmonton on June 18, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. and be followed by a dinner Banquet. If you’re planning on attending the Banquet, please register with Mel by June 11, 2016. Alberta also welcomes the Canadian Charolais Youth Association Conference and Show, July 12 through 15, 2016 in Olds. This year’s conference will be Beefin’ It Up in conjunction with Summer Synergy while expanding the opportunities for our youth through additional scholarships and networking. Registration is online this year through www.summersynergy.ca. Full details and Conference information can be found later in this issue. We strongly encourage you to come to Olds and support our youth; build and expand relationships with the next generation of decision makers. REGISTRY REMINDERS • Have calving data entered into the system by May 15 to guarantee the most current data from your herd is included on the next EPD evaluation. As producers, please continue to contribute your performance data as its imperative in the maintenance of an accurate data base thus ensuring positive breed improvements. • Remember to DNA your bulls; don’t leave it until the last minute! The current turnaround time on receiving results is three to four weeks from the time the sample is received at the lab. • Please keep your contact information (mailing address, phone number and email address) current with the CCA Office!

Je viens tout juste de rentrer du Congrès mondial de Charolais qui a eu lieu à Guadalajara, au Mexique, et je suis encore complètement émerveillée de l’hospitalité mexicaine,de leur industrie d’élevage de bovins de boucherie et de la qualité de nos exportations de génétique canadienne. Je lève mon chapeau aux producteurs de bœuf canadiens ! Nous avons exporté de la génétique,de lignées différentes pour le Mexique, qui est adaptable et durable et qui apporte du succès aux exploitations mexicaines. Peu importe la direction où je regardais, j’y trouvais un lien avec le Canada. Les animaux eux-mêmes ou la descendance qu'ils ont produite ont prouvé queles bovins canadiens ajoutent de la valeur. J'ai eu la chance de voyager avant le début du Congrès mondial avec Roger Peters, un camarade du conseil d’administration au Comité conjoint canadien des races de boucherie et propriétaire des exportations Peterosa Ltd. Nous avons visité un ranch progressifà Tepatitlan, MX qui importe la génétique canadienne de trois différentes races de bœuf. Roger gère un certain nombre de clients entre le Canada et le Mexique et attribue le succès des exportations canadiennes à la taille de nos animaux, leur fertilité, et leur adaptabilité. Il y a une forte présence de génétique canadienne parmi les meneurs des évaluations génétiques du cheptel mexicain. Notre participation au Congrès a renforcé nos relations actuelles et élargi notre réseau avec non seulement les délégués, mais aussi les éleveurs du Mexique et tous ceux du monde entier qui ont participé. Jetons maintenant un regard sur un événement qui prendra place bientôt, soit Assemblée générale annuelle de l’association canadienne Charolais qui sera à Edmonton, Alberta les 17 et 18 juin.

HERD HEALTH

Is Your Bull’s Penis Cut or Broken? Roy Lewis DVM

Numerous times throughout the breeding season calls come in to veterinary clinics in regards to swellings along the sheath of bulls. In many instances a favorable outcome is highly attainable and with today’s bull prices, this may be good news for the client. Purebred breeders often may get bull purchasers phoning with these same issues and definitely refer them on as many times breeding function can be returned. If bulls are insured, the insurance companies need you to do your due diligence and get the bulls treated by a vet. Location of the swelling tells a lot about its cause. Generally if the penis has been broken the swelling is just ahead of the scrotum. Swellings lower down on the sheath are common with lacerations to either the penis or the prepuce. A broken penis is the result of a rent created in the sinus of the penis. Blood accumulates in the sinus causing the erection. A sudden bend to an erect penis such as being hit when breeding will cause such a break. Then in subsequent breeding attempts blood is pumped out through this defect. The blood is trapped in this location causing the visible swelling or hematoma. The degree of swelling therefore depends on how many breeding attempts have been made before the producer can pull the bull from the breeding herd. Some bulls will be turned off sexually and may not attempt further. To diagnose a cut penis your veterinarian will either sedate the bull to have a good look at his penis or use an electro ejaculator to be able to visualize it. Cuts are the result of breeding in bush, over fences, rough breedings sudden bends to an erect penis, overshooting the mark etc. Some bulls are more prone because of their aggressive nature. A few polled bulls have a tendency 14

to have their sheath prolapsed constantly and drying out. All these things greatly increase the likelihood of lacerations and tears. Complications involve several scenarios and can be vastly different in each case. Large cuts can result in infection and subsequent scarring which could prevent the bull from extending his penis therefore not achieving intromission. I personally have seen a case where 100% of a person’s herd was open because the herd bull had a scarred down penis from an injury the previous year. Another very good reason to semen evaluate and make sure the penis can be fully extended. If severe swelling has occurred the prepuce may be prolapsed. This can also occur with broken penises and the resulting drying, swelling and cracking of the prolapsed prepuce causes a serious complication. Hydrotherapy with medicating ointments is often prescribed and keeping bulls in the shade to further reduce drying. The swelling must be brought down to allow retraction of the prepuce back into the sheath. In all these cases the bulls can be immediately shipped for emergency slaughter as long as no medication has been given. However a vast majority can be treated so depending on age of bull and his value to your herd, this option is always available. The bull will be out of commission for some time so a replacement bull may be needed and the rest of the breeding season may be missed. Treatment is not complicated or costly just some labor and the tincture of time with sexual rest resolve many of them. Broken penises require hydrotherapy initially and then a long sexual rest. A few months later the bull may be tested to see if erection is possible. About 50% of the cases will heal (if caught early before large swellings have occurred) but they do have a higher incidence of reoccurring than normal bulls. Surgery was Charolais Banner • May 2016

tried more often in the past but because of the large blood clot that formed, infection is a very real complication. Prognosis is no better than the conservative medical approach. The blood clot is absorbed over time and as long as adhesions are minimized with hydrotherapy infection is unlikely. Cut penises involve careful scrutinization by your veterinarian. Flushing medication up the sheath along with hydrotherapy and systemic drugs are used in bad cases. Minor cases will be left with just sexual rest and time. If breeding is allowed the laceration may be extended and also blood is very detrimental to sperm health. With fresh cuts this mixing of blood and sperm can result in very poor fertility. We know that many minor cuts do heal on their own from the scars we see on penises at semen evaluation in subsequent years. These cuts most likely occurred the previous breeding season. The seriousness of the injury will determine prognosis and estimated return to function. Some minor cuts will be healed and the bull ready to use in two to three weeks. They should be checked to make sure complete healing has occurred. A high percentage of cuts will heal however keeping that bull until the next breeding season may be warranted depending on the value of the bull. That choice again is made based on the value of the bull, his age and when in the breeding season the laceration occurred. When checking your bulls during the breeding season watch for full extension when breeding, blood on breeding and keep a careful watch of the sheath area for any abnormal swellings. If anything is noticed pull them immediately and get them attended to. This is extremely critical in single sire breeding groups because cut or broken penises do not result in continued on page 15


INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

It certainly has been an interesting spring in Canada with bull sales remaining strong despite lower prices for both feeder and fed cattle. This may be something that purebred breeders will want to keep a close watch on. If prices don’t rebound and the national herd doesn’t embrace expansion, it will be a different bull market in 2017. On a positive note, there has never been a greater emphasis placed on genetics, the science of genetics, and in genetically improving the national herd. The Canadian purebred industry is in an excellent position to lead the world in breeding cattle that are the most fertile, functional, efficient and yet still produce the highest quality beef anywhere. True genetic improvement will only be achieved through breeding programs built by producers. Ideally this will include a blend of phenotypic appraisal, breed association

performance programs (EPDs and genomics), and good management. At CBBC we were able to source funding from Agriculture Agri-Food Canada through the CAAP program to help offset the cost of genomic testing for producers. If you are interested, please contact your breed association for details. The Canadian Beef Breeds Council has been proud to support the Charolais World Technical Tour in Canada last year and the recently completed World Charolais Congress in Mexico. It is critical that Canada is represented at global beef events in order to promote our world class genetics. Although we have benefited from strong domestic cattle prices in recent years and we haven’t relied on the export market, it is important to remember that Canada is an exporting nation and we need to maintain or expand market access in order to add dollars into our purebred industry. This is best accomplished through

direct interaction with international cattle producers of all breeds and types of agriculture operations. There are a lot of markets to cover and the contribution made by our purebred industry from breeders, sale managers, export companies and association staff are an important part of creating the Canada Beef Advantage that the entire beef cattle industry benefits from. The Canadian Beef Breeds Council recently elected Garner Deobald as President. Garner along with his wife Lori, operate Cedarlea Charolais in Hodgeville, Saskatchewan. To round out the Charolais influence at CBBC, Canadian Charolais Association General Manager Mel Reekie was elected to the Board of Directors and will serve a two-year term. We are very excited to have Mel join the board and work with Garner as President. Their experience and leadership will be an asset to the organization.

HERD HEALTH, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 cows getting bred. The value of purebred owners’ herd bulls further illustrates the need to move on these quickly and return them to future

breeding function. Preserving good genetics is worth it. Collecting semen for freezing can even be done on bulls with scarred

down penises so don’t give up if there is value in the genetics.

Editor’s Note: Brandon Sparrow, Vanscoy, Saskatchewan, is a CCYA Alumni who participated in many conferences, served as a Saskatchewan Director, National Board President, Conference Chair and CCYA Co-ordinator. The CCYA program was influential in my interest of cattle and the beef industry. I attended over 10 conferences and made many life-long friends and connections throughout the years. Wishing to continue my involvement in the beef industry and to gain some new experiences, I was introduced to a unique program offered by the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. The Cattlemen’s Young Leaders (CYL) Program is a ten-month mentorship program that is designed to provide enthusiastic youth within the beef industry with the knowledge, skill set and network to become leaders in the industry. Open to anyone between 18-35 years old who has a connection to the beef industry, the program began in 2010 with six participants and has grown to 16 participants chosen in 2015 from over 60 applicants. Early each year an online application form for the program can be found on the CYL website. These applications are evaluated by a committee and reduced to a 24 participant group that is invited to the spring forum, which was held in Saskatoon in 2015.

I was selected in the top 24 and attended the event. The first day of the forum consisted of educational speakers and a very informative panel session with Alanna Koch, Greg McDonald and Marty Seymour on the power of networking and youth involvement in the agriculture industry. The next day involved the competition to determine the 2015/2016 participants. The selection process consisted of a series of round table discussions facilitated by beef industry members on a variety of topics. These ranged from antimicrobial use and resistance, sustainability of beef and the McDonald’s Sustainable Beef Pilot Project, and marketing beef in a global economy. The diverse backgrounds of the competitors was evident throughout the day as each discussion table saw a different grouping to discuss the topic. It was very interesting to meet likeminded individuals from across the country who are all involved in the beef industry in different ways. From vets, to feedlot operators, seed stock producers and a lawyer, the assortment of the group was evident, and provided a

Charolais Banner • May 2016

unique opportunity to network with these people. The judging panel evaluated our discussions throughout the day and from there chose the final 16, of which I was a part. Once selected, a committee led by Jill Harvie and Jolene Noble, the CYL co-ordinators, held a conference call with the participants to determine our interests and what we were looking for in a mentor. I outlined that I had interest in purebred livestock, international trade and genetics. The committee then paired me with PJ Budler of Fort Worth, Texas. PJ is originally from South Africa where he was raised on a cattle and sheep ranch. He is very involved in the Hereford and Angus breeds and travels extensively to judge shows all over the world. PJ has visited over 49 countries and counting, and sources genetics for clients all over the globe. He relocated to Texas a few years back and founded HerefordBreeder.net and TheCattleMarket.net, which is a market place to buy and sell cattle genetics across the world. A major initiative he has developed is the Hereford Champion of the World Competition which is held each December. This online competition takes photos of Hereford show champions from 66 countries, that are then evaluated by four official judges and a fifth “judge” consisting of all Facebook “Hereford Breeder” members who vote during the competition. There were over 4300 votes cast by Facebook members from 35 countries in the 2015 competition. From there, four regional champions are selected (South America, Asia/Africa, Europe, and North

Brandon and Autumn Jackson at the Saskatoon CCYA Conference in 2011

America) for both female and bulls. The breeders of these regional winners are then invited to the Fort Worth Stock Show for the Hereford Champion of the World week. I had the opportunity to attend this event as the highlight of my CYL mentorship and it was a great experience. The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has seen the value in this event and truly put on a world class experience for the attendees with cash prizes awarded to the regional and overall winners. Of the eight regional winners, seven were able to attend this year’s event representing England, Argentina, Australia, Scotland, South Africa and USA. The overall champion female and bull were announced during a ceremony at the Hereford sale with the USA bull and female taking this

year’s top prize, ending a three-year Canadian female winning streak. The competition serves as a platform to bring these breeders together to promote awareness, goodwill and trade. Although not being much of a Hereford breeder myself, the event provided much more than the competition, with many presentations and tours as well. The hotel venue for the week was in the middle of the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, which is a major tourist attraction and an experience all its own. This area of the city is dedicated to old western saloons and shops, as well as the original stockyards. The Fort Worth Stock Show is an event I would suggest every cattle producer attend at some point with cattle numbers similar to that of the National Western


in Denver, and weather that can’t be beat in February! Following the events at the show, the group was taken to Texas Christian University for a day of presentations. Each regional winner gave an overview of their operation and their goals as purebred breeders. The vast differences in scale of operations was evident with the Australian breeders running a 70,000 acre station of 40,000 sheep and 500 Hereford cows, to the South African’s operating a farm of 120 Herefords, 300 sheep, and 100,000 layer hens on a mere 60 acre farm! After this we began touring across the state and visited some of the leading Hereford herds in Texas and all of North America. At each herd we had the opportunity to judge a class of four animals selected by the breeder. We then placed each class and discussed our placings and reasons by country to compare the differences we looked for in purebred livestock. Some of the bull classes were extremely split, whereas the female classes seemed to be more consistent. It was very interesting to hear what qualities these breeders were looking for in their cattle and what different traits they select for in their markets. The overall experience was tremendous and the work that PJ and his wife Koula have done to put on the event is very admirable. The Fort Worth Stock Show is looking to expand the concept and include more

breeds in the future, with Angus and Charolais next on the list. Their goal is to become the international hub for the cattle trade and events like these are a great way to bring in breeders from across the globe. As well as this event, I was able to attend the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association’s Semi-Annual meeting in Winnipeg last fall. The majority of the CYL participants were able to attend this event and we had a full agenda, attending some of the CCA discussions as well as a negotiation training workshop. These events allowed us an insight on how the CCA operates and serves the beef industry across Canada, and allowed us to network with its directors. Throughout the year other CYL participants were able to travel to events such as the Five Nations Beef Alliance in Mexico, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Conference in San Diego and the National Western Stock Show in Denver to name a few. The program is very flexible for the participants and provides a travel budget to assist with the cost of attending these events. The CYL mentorship program encourages each member to stay in contact with their mentor throughout the year. As people with busy schedules, consistent communication is not always maintained, but I have kept up with PJ through email and phone

calls. The goal of the program is not for the mentor to take time out of their day to day to teach the participant, but rather for the mentee to develop opportunities to learn from the mentor, whether it be by correspondence or travelling to different events. As a result of my mentorship I have become the Canadian representative for TheCattleMarket.net. This website is free to list, and aims to connect more breeders across the globe with a platform to buy and sell frozen and live genetics. To complete the mentorship program, a finished “road map” detailing my experience must be completed with a summary of the accomplishments I have made throughout my term in the mentorship program. New this year, the program will commence at the Canadian Cattlemen’s Beef Industry Conference held in Calgary in August. I encourage anyone in the beef industry between the ages of 18-35 to apply for the CYL program. It has been a great experience and I have learned a lot from my mentorship. The program brings people from all corners of the industry together and is expertly run by the CCA to better the future of beef in Canada.

OBITUARY

Edward Morgan 1931 – 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ted Morgan on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, with his family by his side. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 56 years, Pat and their children and grandchildren: Wendy (Chris), Russell (Deanne) and Kurtis; Laurie (Greg), Vicky (Brayden), Travis, Cody (Ali); Brian (Monica), Justin, Kyle; Krista (Paul) and Jake. 62

Ted was born on the Morgan family farm in the Spinney Hill district and grew up there. He loved the farming way of life, especially his cattle and horses. Something I just thought of is that I have never in my life heard my Dad mad and yelling about anything. He may be upset but never raised his voice in anger. In 1959, he married the love of his life, Pat, and they were blessed with four children and later eight grandchildren. Ted loved the humorous things in life. He loved hearing and telling many stories and jokes which we will all cherish. He Charolais Banner • May 2016

took pride in his family that he loved so dearly. He was an honest and loyal man, who always put others ahead of himself, always lending a helping hand. Ted’s passion was his Charolais cattle. He enjoyed looking after cattle on the farm as well as travelling to sales and delivering bulls. In his later years, when Ted retired, he enjoyed the time he spent with neighbours, friends and family. Ted was well loved by many and will be dearly missed. Our family would like to thank the wonderful friends and neighbours for always being there for them.

CANADIAN CHAROLAIS YOUTH ASSOCIATION NEWS

Beefin’ It Up in Alberta Megan McLeod, Alberta Director

Well, I hope that everyone is getting excited for summer, and with it, the 2016 CCYA Conference and Show that will be held in Olds, Alberta in conjunction with Summer Synergy! For anyone who has not heard of the Summer Synergy program, it is a program that works to promote and encourage youth in agriculture by bringing together Dairy, Sheep, Equine, and Beef youth exhibitors to compete for over $70,000 in scholarship money. Our Alberta Charolais Youth Association and our conference planning committee is very excited to offer this opportunity, as any CCYA conference competitor can compete for scholarships through CCYA NATIONAL BOARD charolaisyouth@gmail.com President: Shae-Lynn Evans evans32s@uregina.ca Vice-President: Wyatt Ching gw.ching@sasktel.net Treasurer: Courtney Black petunia-101@hotmail.com Secretary: Tomina Jackson tomi_j_@hotmail.com

Summer Synergy if they are willing to compete in the five required components. These components include: Multi-Species Judging, Individual Grooming, Marketing, Conformation, and Showmanship. As well, this year, there will be a few changes to the regular CCYA Conference program. Instead of the traditional Beef Judging Competition, all CCYA competitors will be competing in the Multi-Species Judging Competition with the Summer Synergy exhibitors. This will still include various beef judging classes, but it will expand to encompass various other livestock species. This competition will allow members to gain knowledge on the selection of various species of livestock and become better stockmen. Director: Luke Marshall lsm742@mail.usask.ca Director: Megan McLeod rmeganmcleod@rvschools.ab.ca Director: Shelby Evans sle379@mail.usask.ca Director: Keegan Blehm keegb34@yahoo.ca 2016 CCYA Conference & Show Executive President: Megan McLeod rmeganmcleod@rvschools.ab.ca

Moving on to some of the other details in regards to our conference, registration will be done online this year. This will be done through the Summer Synergy Online Registration, with a detailed registration guide to follow this article. As well, blocks of rooms have been reserved for CCYA Youth at the Pomeroy Inn & Suites, and the Ramada, with townhouses also being available at the Olds College. As well, our banquet will be held at the Olds College. Our planning committee is so excited to be organizing this event, and we cannot wait to see our charolais youth, both the new faces and the returning competitors. I hope that everyone has a great spring, and I hope to see everyone in Olds for the 2016 CCYA Conference in July!
