POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

It is the end of April and after what was one of the longer winters on record, it has finally left and we are getting spring. The end of April also marks the end of the bull sale season and it was another very good run. At the back of the magazine you can see the Bull Sale Stats and Charts. This is the 37th year we have been keeping track of all the sales in Canada that we can get results from and this year was a record. Most sales ever recorded, most bulls ever sold at auction, largest gross of all time and the average up from last year. It was an interesting sale season with some 1st time auction sales being very positive. Some annual sales were down, and some were up, and in most cases, we did pass some bulls as breeders tried to sell more bulls than the year before and ended up selling about the same numbers. Should you keep that passed bull and try and sell him next year? Unless you had extenuating circumstances on sale day, probably your first loss is your cheapest. If you do sell bulls after the sale privately, make sure it is for sale average or higher or you will be training your customers with bad habits, and this will not benefit your future sales. There seem to be three factors that most affect bulls sales: Weather and you can’t control that, Management and this is a year-round job of getting the bulls weaned on time and on feed to be ready for pictures and then the sale and Marketing which is also a year-round job. The most successful sales from a marketing stand point go to the breeders who are in touch with their customers throughout the year. Whether it be a phone call, driving into their yard or visiting with them at the auction mart when they sell their calves. If you don’t have time to do these things, then you can’t expect to get top dollar for your offering. Sale 6

week marketers will never get the results they desire. This spring we saw more breeders do Homozygous Polled tests on their sale bulls and it is interesting the number that are out there. I am not promoting that we need to have all our bulls homo polled and I sure won’t discourage anyone from using a horned bull if it has what they are looking for, but providing more information for the buyers did pay dividends. I still can’t get my head around some commercial producers with straight Angus cow herds (that will be Homozygous Polled) thinking they need to use polled bulls. All the calves will be polled from a horned bull and if they aren’t keeping any replacements it is a non-issue. The number of scurred bulls out there has also increased. I believe there are a couple of reasons for this. The first one is that some of the Homozygous Polled bulls do carry the scur gene, but it is masked by being homo polled. The other is that many breeders have overlooked the scur and used bulls that are scurred. One thing I have seen is that small scurs breed small scurs and big scurs produce big scurs. In most cases the small scur in the commercial setting isn’t an issue as the offspring will be harvested before they even grow out past the hair so again should be a non-issue. I think as breeder’s though, we need to be correctly registering the scurred animals so the Charolais herdbook is accurate and also so the non-attending sale buyers don’t get any surprises when they get their bull home. We haven’t seen it yet, but if the animal isn’t catalogued as scurred and is bought as being smooth polled, there will be some unhappy customers that may request you take the bull back and they have a justified argument. I hope many of you plan to attend the Breeder School we are hosting in Weyburn in June. Please register with us as soon as you can and book a motel room. There is complete Charolais Banner • May 2018

information in this issue and it will be informative for all ages. I had one breeder say he was too old to attend and I jokingly asked if it was because he knew it all, or was too old to learn? I believe you aren’t old until you stop learning. The age variance of those registered so far is very encouraging. There are breeders with the experience to offer mentorship, some less experienced breeders and some very new breeders attending. It is good to see many breeders willing to challenge their knowledge and take advantage of the opportunity. We have breeders from across the country and even interest from outside Canada. Not only will the presentations be interesting and educational, but the networking and meeting other breeders is an essential part of this process too. With this mix of people, the after hours sessions should be thought provoking. Other events that you should try to attend include the Canadian Charolais Association in Ontario in early June. I am sure this will be a fun event with some herd tours and of course letting you have your input into the affairs of your association. The end of June is the Alberta Charolais Association tour in southern Alberta. Last year saw over 200 at the end of the day and there will be some great tours and hospitality for anyone attending. Again, a great day to meet and visit with fellow breeders in a relaxed atmosphere. This also goes for the Saskatchewan Pen Show and AGM in July. Of course the CCYA Conference and Show is in Brandon this summer and we have over a dozen young adults from eight countries participating this year as part of a Charolais International initiative to encourage more youth shows and interaction around the world. It will be a great learning experience for all involved and watching. Ads on all these events are in this continued on page 16

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Du Champ Helge By

Nous arrivons à la fin d’avril et après un hiver inlassable, le printemps se montre enfin. La fin du mois d’avril est aussi synonyme de la fin des ventes de taureaux. Vous trouverez à la fin du magazine nos donnés sur celles-ci. Depuis 37 ans, nous compilons les statistiques des ventes de taureaux à travers le pays et nous avons battu nos records. Cette année, le nombres de ventes a été surpassé ainsi que le plus grand nombre total de taureaux vendu, un nouveau record de prix de vente et une moyenne de vente plus élevée que l’an passé font parti de ces nouveaux résultats jamais connu. Ce fut une saison de ventes très intéressante avec des premières ventes annuelles positives. Certaines ventes annuelles étaient en baisse, d’autres en hausse mais dans la plupart des cas où certains producteurs ont essayé d’augmenter le nombre de taureaux à leur ventes ont finis avec des résultats semblable à l’année précédente. Devriez-vous garder le taureau qui ne s’est pas vendu et le remettre dans la vente l’an prochain? À moins d’avoir eu des circonstances qui ont empêché des acheteurs à se rendre à votre vente, c’est une perte minime. Si vous choisissez de vendre votre taureau après, assurez-vous de le vendre dans les prix de moyenne de la vente. Sinon, vous entraîner vos acheteurs à de mauvaises habitudes et cela aura aucun avantage pour vous aux prochaines ventes. Il semble avoirs trois facteurs qui peuvent affecter le rendement: la température, la gestion de la vente et la publicité. La température est hors de notre contrôle. La gestion de votre vente signifie la préparation de vos lots. Il est important de saillir au bon temps, que l’animal soit bien nourri et son apparence lors des photos. La publicité se fait au cours de l’année. Les meilleurs vendeurs parlent à leurs 8

clients soit par téléphone, en personne à l’année longue et les accompagnent lors des ventes de veaux d’automne. Si vous n’accordez pas de temps pour vos clients, vous ne pouvez pas surpasser vos objectifs de vente. Soyez pas vendeurs seulement la semaine qui précède votre vente. Nous avons remarqué une hausse pour le test d’homozygote sans cornes dans les vente de taureaux. Je ne fais pas de promotion des taureaux sans cornes comme je ne peux pas dissuader un acheteur de faire l’achat du taureau à corne si le reste du taureau représente ce qu’il recherche. Éduquer les clients apporte un profit. Je suis encore surpris quand on me dit dit que certains producteurs commercial avec des femelles Angus (homozygote sans cornes) ont besoin de trouver un taureau homozygote sans cornes. Si ces femelles sont saillies avec un taureau cornu, les veaux seront sans cornes. À moins de garder la progéniture comme femelles de remplacement, pourquoi s’en faire? Le nombre de taureaux avec un rudiment de corne(scur) est aussi à la hausse. Je crois qu’il y a deux facteurs qui favorisent cette augmentation. Le premier est que certain taureaux homozygote porte le gène du rudiment de corne mais il est dormant en étant homozygote sans corne. L’autre facteur serait que certains producteurs auraient négligés d’avoir indiqué que le taureau avait un rudiment de corne. J’ai remarqué que les races qui ont des petit rudiments transmettrons des petits rudiments et que celles avec de gros rudiments transmettrons des gros. Dans la plupart des cas dans un élevage commercial, un rudiment de corne n’est pas un problème car le veau sera traité avec la pâte à corne avant qu’il soit laissé au champ. Comme producteurs pur-sang, il est important que le registre Charolais soit à jour pour ne pas surprendre un acheteur qui s’attend à un sans corne. Comme vendeur, si vous annoncez Charolais Banner • May 2018

votre taureau dans une vente comme un sans corne(smooth polled) et que le nouveau propriétaire se rend compte que c’est plutôt un taureau qui produit de la progéniture avec des rudiments (scurred), il faut assumez les possibles répercussions de ce geste et les conséquences sur votre réputation d’éleveur. Nous avons la chance d’être vos hôtes pour l“École d’Éleveurs” qui sera présenté à Weyburn en Juin. Nous espérons que vous aurez la chance d’y participer. Ne tardez pas à nous envoyez votre inscription et de réservez votre chambre au Motel. Tous les détails sont dans le magazine. Cette formation éducative est ouverte et pour tous les groupes d’âges. Un producteur m’a dit qu’il était trop vieux pour y participer. En blaguant, je lui ai demandé s’il connaissait déjà tout où s’il était trop vieux pour apprendre? Selon moi, nous sommes pas trop vieux tant est aussi longtemps que nous voulons apprendre. L’écart d’âge parmi les inscriptions reçues varient et cela est encourageant pour la relève. Certains éleveurs avec l’expérience pourront offrir leurs conseil et sagesse aux autres éleveurs. Nous avons des nouveaux producteurs et d’autres avec un peu d’expérience. Ce qui compte, c’est de voir tant de producteurs prêts à relever le défi et de profiter de cette opportunité. Nous attendons des producteurs d’un coin à l’autre du pays et nous avons même de l’intérêt de l’extérieur du Canada. La formation seule vaut la peine mais oubliez pas tout le réseau de connaissance entre éleveurs que vous gagnerez. Avec la diversité des personnes présentent, les discussions hors sessions sauront faire réfléchir. La réunion de l’Association Charolais Canadienne aura lieu en Ontario en juin. Je vous conseille aussi d’y participer. Plusieurs visite de fermes sont à l’horaire et vous avez aussi la chance de participer à ce qui suite à la page 16

HERD HEALTH

Lice in Canada Roy Lewis DVM

In spite of the usage of pour on endectocides over many years, this winter has been a bad one for lice infestations. In the practice I was in and others I have talked to, the incidence of lice both biting, and sucking lice are on the increase. It is very hard to completely control biting lice as they are always on the move. The pour on endectocides used to do an extremely thorough job at bringing the numbers of sucking lice to virtually zero on any recently treated animal. This article will review lice transmission and control, mention some different products on the market and hopefully encourage more producers to be on the lookout for lice. It is most definitely an economic concern to cattle producers and with rubbing and hair loss especially in purebred bulls it is a nuisance. If you suspect lice after repeated treatments get them checked out as there are other causes of hair loss in cattle. Lice are the most common and persistent parasite in wintered cattle in Western Canada. There is one species of biting lice (they cause severe irritation and scratching) and three of sucking lice (they cause anaemia and weight loss) on Canadian cattle. In one older two-year study of calves entering southern Alberta feedlots between 57-95% of calves were lousy to varying degrees. This indicates a very high infestation rate on some of our cow-calf herds. I know this to be true from examinations and autopsies we do especially on small herds, which often do not treat. We often identify lice when doing c-sections and once the area is clipped lice are very obvious. The life cycle varies between 21 and 30 days depending on the species. In this time an egg can hatch, grow to an adult,and start the cycle over again. It is easy to see why populations can increase almost exponentially after a 14

while and become a severe problem in some herds. The endectocides had a residual effect and continue to kill the eggs as they hatch, so controlled lice very well. There were a couple endectocides on the market, cydectin being the most well-known, that dewormed well but did a poor job on sucking lice. It is extremely important when you treat, to treat all in-contact animals, as transmission between incontact animals is very rapid. If some are missed, they reintroduce the lice to previously treated ones, restarting the whole lifecycle. Don’t forget to treat the bulls they can have the highest infection rates and can expose the cows and calves at the breeding season if they are missed. Cows rapidly transmit the lice to their calves. Herds will have carrier animals, ones that have an abnormally high population of lice. These animals may be immunosuppressed for some reason or have a concurrent disease. Cattle in poor nutritional shape will have lowered immune responses and allow lice to build up quickly. This is also true if cattle become extremely loaded with internal worms. Today’s confinement and larger herds can exacerbate lice transmission. Young calves are especially vulnerable since a lot of their energy is being put into growth. It is extremely important to have the cows lice free at the start of the calving season so the calves don’t become infested. The close proximity to each other and sucking the udder allow for easy transmission of lice between dam and calf. I have seen severe lice buildups in calves as young as two weeks. These lice infestations cause as already mentioned anaemia, itchiness with hair loss, irritation, increased susceptibility to disease and most importantly from an economic standpoint weight loss or poorer weight gains and feed efficiency. These growth slowdowns may seem invisible much like internal parasites are, but it most definitely makes sense Charolais Banner • May 2018

to treat. Even though direct studies involving economic loss to amount of lice have not been done, if 50 or more lice are found in an entire examination the infestation is considered heavy. Lice are found on different parts on the body but commonly the neck or brisket, around the eyes; top line, tailhead or the udder and scrotum are common spots to look for lice. Sucking lice are quite visible to the naked eye are adherent to the skin and a bluish colour. Biting lice are quite a bit smaller barely visible and a yellow colour. It is best to part the hair with a comb or clip an area especially around locations where scratching is occurring. Your veterinarian can do skin scrapings if mange is also being considered. All these parasites are easily identified with a microscope. Remember cattle normally scratch in day to day grooming procedures and there are several other causes of scratching or rubbing. The other causes of scratching may be determined in the examination process if no parasites are found. Lice prefer the cooler spring fall and mild winter weather. Lice populations are lowest in summer. I believe the hotter temperature under a bison’s thick hair coat discourages them from colonizing the buffalo. In fact, in my entire practise on bison I have yet to diagnose lice on bison. Lice calls and investigations are on the huge increase this year. Maybe it is the year or is resistance to the once very effective endectocides starting to develop. Researchers are gearing up to prove or disprove this possibility. Many producers if seeing the reoccurrence are switching to the category 3 permethroids such as Boss, Saber or Cylence as they have indications for both types of lice. These are also small dose pour-on products and because they are a different class of chemical seem to be effective and have quite short continued on page 16

only problem with oilers is they are expensive as an initial purchase and need a lot of maintenance. There is a lice guarantee on some of the endectocides provided they are applied properly and it is within the allowable time limits. This is providing there are no non-treated cattle mixed in after the lice treatment was applied and the proper dosage was given. Biting lice and chorioptic mange are surface feeders and move round so it is hard to get complete effectiveness all the time. Be sure to abide by the instructions, as there are long slaughter withdrawals on most of these products. In summary all cattle in Western Canada should be treated for lice at least once in the fall but again watch for reoccurrence and if necessary retreat maybe with a different product. We will wait and see if

resistance really is starting to become a problem in Western Canada specifically or whether the long cold winter made proper application harder. There have been herds which have treated two to three times and still are developing problems. Be careful when introducing new stock for the presence of lice and be ever vigilant for the signs of scratching and hair loss. Our climate is ideal for lice reproduction so we can’t let up in our preventative approach. These specialized products may be necessary mid winter to keep especially biting lice at bay. Talk to your veterinarian if you think lice are reappearing on your farm and work with them for a strategic treatment program. I believe the lice population possibly may be changing.

withdrawals. These are not long-term residual products so it is recommended to retreat cattle in two to three weeks if necessary. By changing up our treatments alternating between the endectocide’s to these permethroids may be a way to get greater effectiveness. Also, if you applied the endectocide’s in the cold winter and got icing up of the product that greatly reduces its effectiveness for sure. Endectocides have a freezing temperature not much below -10C so that potentially could have been a problem in application this year. For continual control of lice, oilers can be used at pasture and they also provide relief from flies and mosquitoes during the summer months. Several products can be used usually mixed with mineral oil or canola oil to provide this control. The 16

Charolais Banner • May 2018


In August 2017, I had the opportunity to go to the Canadian Beef Industry Conference in Calgary for the chance to be chosen for a mentorship spot with the Cattlemen’s Young Leaders (CYL). To get a spot in CYL, I competed in a number of round table discussions where I was judged on my knowledge of the industry, my passion, and my ability to listen and learn. It wasn’t until a month later that I found out I was one of the 16 youth chosen from across Canada to participate in one of the best mentorship programs in the world. At first I was shocked, as there was an extremely talented group of individuals I competed against. But after taking some time to reflect on why I was chosen, aside from 4-H, the Canadian Charolais Youth Association had a huge impact on who I am today within the beef industry. I have attended 7 conferences with CCYA and within those years, I had the privilege of being the Manitoba representative on the National Board for two terms. I also got more involved within Manitoba, and held the position of president of the Manitoba Junior Charolais Association for the 2014 conference in Portage la Prairie. This involvement within the Charolais breed has helped me grow into a position that I didn’t know I would be in. When I think about what I learned as a youth member at

the conferences, I learned the basics on how to select cattle, fitting and showing, and even marketing. These skills have strengthened the cattle knowledge side of me, but I think the most important skills for me came from the underlying meaning of all of the events within CCYA. The very first thing that you learn when you join CCYA is that we work as a team. The older members help the younger members, and it is truly something amazing to see. Come show day there is not a single parent in the barn, and the kids are working as a team to get their cattle in the ring. This team work showed me the leadership side of my personality, and after realizing the potential leadership roles I could play, it has helped me stand out in a crowd and excel at team work events. These leadership skills also helped me become a National Board Member, and my

knowledge of meetings and policy grew as I became more involved in the planning side of the organization. Another skill that CCYA taught me was how to network. When I became a member, I was a commercial breeder with a little bit of experience from 4-H, so in order to have fun at a conference I needed to make friends. It’s funny to look around now and see that some of the senior members I looked up to in my first years are now running successful purebred operations, and the friends I made at the conferences

are spread all across western Canada. It’s truly amazing to see how making friends turns into having a huge network of people that you can count on. One of the last skills that CCYA gave me was passion. Being able to work with and compete along side some amazing youth within the beef industry gave me the drive to always want to be better and try harder. It also helped me realize that you have to work for what you want, but it’s a whole lot easier when you are passionate about what you are working towards.

In the end, I’m sure CCYA has given me many more life lessons and skills, but the few I highlighted directly link me to how I ended up as a Cattlemen’s Young Leader. With the beef industry knowledge I gained as a junior, the leadership skills I found within myself, being confident in introducing myself to new people, and truly developing a passion for this breed and for the beef industry has helped me get where I am today, and I owe a lot of it to the amazing Canadian Charolais Youth Association for getting me here.

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

Spring will eventually arrive in Canada and put an end to one of the longest coldest winters in recent memory. It is always a refreshing time of year when the snow melts and cattle move from winter feeding areas to pasture. I was encouraged to see another year of strong bull sales, which is a good indication of confidence in the cattle markets for the year ahead. The CBBC held its AGM in Calgary on March 28, 2018, which was attended by producers, industry staff and government officials. Roger Peters, of Peterosa Exports, was elected President and I look forward to working with him to represent the Canadian seedstock industry. I would like to thank Garner Deobald for his dedication and steadfast leadership during his tenure as President of CBBC the past two years. There has been a lot of discussion in the media regarding international trade agreements. This includes the CPTTP, NAFTA and CETA. They are often referred to as ‘free trade’ agreements which is misleading in

that the word ‘free’ refers to fewer restrictions on the movement of goods and services and not ‘free’ as in no cost. These agreements lay out the terms of trade between two countries and are vital to industries that are based on international trade. The beef cattle industry is one of those industries as we rely heavily on exports to increase the value of our genetics, live cattle and beef products. The recent signing of the CPTTP was an important step toward securing meaningful access in the growing Asian markets. This is especially important regarding access to the important Japanese market. Previous to the agreement coming into effect, we are at a significant tariff disadvantage on beef products as compared to several competing nations. The Japanese consumer prefers and is willing to pay for a high-quality (high marbling) beef product, which Canada produces in abundance. It is also important because it doesn’t require altering the current production methods used in Canada to raise beef cattle which also allows packing plants the flexibility to

market beef from an individual animal into several countries, thus utilizing the carcass and increasing its value. The Canadian Beef Industry Conference themed “Driving Demand” will be held in London, Ontario from August 14-16, 2018. This will be the third annual conference and the first time it will be held outside of Alberta. The keynote speaker is Rex Murphy who is certain to inform and entertain with his provocative commentary on Canadian politics. CBBC will once again host a Technical Forum which will feature prominent scientists and industry leaders and will focus on advanced scientific aspects of the cattle industry. Registration is now open, and I encourage cattle producers from across Canada to attend as this conference is the meeting place for the Canadian beef industry. It will be a great opportunity to network with fellow cattle producers, learn new information regarding various aspects of the beef industry and it will be filled with cool entertainment.

WE ALL NEED A LAUGH

Road Tales Candace By

As Helge and I remembered a friend and former Charolais breeder, we recalled stories that everyone could appreciate. There were some very strong characters in the Charolais industry in the early days and Ron Kletzel was definitely one of them. He was a very colourful character and challenged many things. On the summer show circuit one year, Ron brought a cow and calf that created quite a stir. He picked his very best cow and his very best calf and brought them to town. He wasn’t breaking the rules, just testing them. At the time, the rules didn’t say it had to be that cow’s calf. He didn’t hide it, he made no bones about it. As you can imagine, the talk in the barn wasn’t really favourable towards the entry. The Hays Classification was quickly revised to read cow with her natural born calf at foot and he is the reason why. He was also known to say what he was thinking, without a filter. Once when he was judging in Saskatoon he spoke about a cow/calf pair he had placed first by saying, “I really like this cow, but she couldn’t help what

she was bred to.” He knew the breeder and he knew who the sire of the calf was. Talk about hopping mad to stand first in class. The breeder happened to be doing some heavy promoting of that calf’s sire. Some people may have got a chuckle over it, but it really wasn’t appreciated. Ron knew cattle. Doug Howe said, “If you want someone to buy you a herd of cows, there is no one better.” He had an eye for cattle that is a gift you just can’t learn. Many people recognized this and got Ron to select cattle for them across North America. He had a bull in partnership that didn’t turn out as he hoped. In fact, he would later say it pretty much took him out of the industry. He phoned a judge before a show, a friend whom he had bought many cattle for, and said, “I don’t care what you do, but you can’t let my bull win.” He liked to stir the pot, but when it came down to it, he never wanted to hurt the industry, he was just having fun. More recently, Helge was visiting him and Ron introduced him to his pet cat, Smokey. Ron was explaining that he was definitely a res. cat (from the reserve). (Ron himself was native and had been adopted.) He did get him from a reserve. “Smokey only

likes KFC, he doesn’t like those roast chickens you buy in the grocery store ready to serve and this is proof of his res background.” Ron thought this was hillarious. Helge proceeded to tell him about a time when we were travelling in South Dakota with our family at Easter break to the Lindskov-Thiel sale. We happened to go by a bunch of KFC garbage that had been left at the side of the road. Bartley, probably about 12 at the time, passed the comment that we must be close to a reserve. I, being the socially conscious person I am, started to give him a really bad time about being racist, how that was not appropriate, how he should not pass such racial judgement… and before I could even finish my rant we came to a sign that read Welcome to the something Reservation. Well Ron thought this was the funniest thing ever. Helge was sure he would have to call an ambulance he was laughing so hard he couldn’t breath. This was a guy who was living with the aid of an oxygen supply at the time. That was Ron, quick to laugh, quick to say what he thought and all the time in the world to visit.

OBITUARY

Ron Kletzel Ron Kletzel was involved with Charolais from a very early age. His grandfather purchased the first purebred bull that Rudiger Charolais sold the fall of 1960. They purchased their first females from the Michaelis Ranch in Texas in 1961 as well as the 1st purebred female sold in the 1st consignment sale in Canada from Rodney James. His family imported 1 bull and 2

females in the first French Importation and over the years imported 4 bulls and 8 females from France. They had the 1st and 3rd high gaining bulls, the same year, twice at the U of S Test Station sired by their own herd bulls. Ron, whose farm name was Char-Ron Charolais from Denzil, Saskatchewan, had the 1977 Agribition Grand Champion Bull and the 1980 Grand Champion Female both sired by their own herd sires. He successfully showed his own Charolais Banner • May 2018

cattle at shows like the World Show, Agribition and Denver as well as sticking cattle for other breeders at shows including the Toronto Royal, Denver, Houston and more. He was one of the first Canadians to be placed on the American Charolais judging list. Ron retired living in Edmonton. He was an art dealer for many years and donated his remaining prints to different organizations to help out, including women’s shelters and the CCYA. He passed away on February 21, 2018. 45
