POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

Is the propensity for a bull not to pass a semen test at an early age hereditary? This bull sale season saw more bulls fail their semen test or be decision deferred (DD) than ever before. The tremendously long stretch of cold weather in January to early March did play a role in this without question. Some of the fails or defers where because of cold shock, but there were also a higher number with proximal droplets than normal. Was some of this because the bulls were in survival mode of get up, go eat and go lay down again in the straw pack to stay warm and not ride or express themselves as they do when the weather is warmer? I am not sure of all the factors, but could one be hereditary that showed up more because of this stressful winter? Driving down the road Candace started analyzing some sales and seeing if there was a pattern. First off, I will say that we don’t have great enough numbers to make this scientifically accurate but have a look at your own program and see if you find some patterns. In one sale 8 out of 12 (66%) of one sire were out or DD, while another sire had 3 out of 6 (50%) and a third sire had 7 out of 21 (33%). Further examination into this sale showed that 3 cows had sons out or deferred in the last two years. In another sale with a high number of fails and DDs one sire group had 8 out of 12 (66%) another sire had 8 of 14 sons (57%) and a third sire had 6 out of 27 (22%) Coincidence? Possibly, but again look at your own herd and see if you see some patterns in sires and dams and let me know. One thing I noticed this spring is a tendency for some breeders to compare their sale results with other breeders, sometimes even within their own sales. This is a dangerous waste of energy and has no value. 6

For one thing, you are never comparing apples to apples. No two programs are exactly the same, no two feeding programs are exactly the same, no two marketing programs are exactly the same, no two customer service programs are exactly the same. Secondly, there is no benefit to this line of thinking. A more positive approach to analyze at the end of your sale would be: What was the atmosphere at the sale this year? Did my customers come? Did I sell as many bulls as last year? Were my bulls as good as last year? Did the bulls that did not sell have a reason for not selling? What can I do differently next year to improve my event? Try to be objective. If you think about this and are still having a hard time pin-pointing things you can improve, ask someone you respect for an objective opinion. When they give it to you, be gracious not defensive. You don’t have to believe them, but it will give you something to think about over time. One thing that I can’t stress enough, about preparing cattle for sales, is that picture day is as important as sale day for having the cattle looking their best. Try to have your animals at 12 o’clock on picture day and then coast them to sale day. Quality photos with the cattle looking their best in the advertisements and catalogue will be a deciding factor for many, as to whether they will inquire about the offering, read the catalogue and attend the sale, as anything. Creep feeding your bull calves is a great way to get them started on feed and get a head start on getting them to the point you need them for picturing. Years ago, I had a very interesting visit with an eighty something producer/educator at the Denver Stock Show. I asked his opinion of creep feeding and he was all for it. I asked what he felt was a good ration for doing this. He thought 1/3 oats, 1/3 barley and 1/3 wheat was balanced enough and to feed it Charolais Banner • May 2019

whole. I questioned the not cracking it and he said that if you ever milked cows and saw the milk eat a hole in the cement from dripping from the cream separator, you would understand. If the lactic acid can eat through cement do you not think it can get through a hull of grain? He felt until a couple of weeks after weaning there was still enough in their stomachs to accomplish this. I am not saying this is what you should be creeping, but I found it interesting. Weaning early will also benefit the process with the animals gaining better on quality feed rather than grass and probably not enough milk at this stage of their lives. Starting early and feeding a lighter ration longer is way better than trying to play catch up because you are behind. That is when damage starts happening to livers, feet, etc. As you read this many of you will be well into breeding for next year and I hope that you have listened to your customers’ wants in producing your next calf crop. Calving ease has been the trend in many programs and the most accepted bulls in a lot of the sales. I just hope we don’t go too far down the rabbit hole and give up too much performance. Back when there were association sponsored bull sales, there were minimum weight requirements that really weren’t that high. With today’s improved feeding and management in breeder’s programs, these are easily attained unless you make them too small genetically. Canadian genetics are finding their way around the world too. In a group sale in Victoria, Australia, the high selling bull was a son of Kay-R Velocity that sold to Thailand. We see it every year that the promoted animals are valued higher in the sales. The next issue is the Herd Reference issue and a great place to showcase your program. Get the good pictures of your herdsires and great continued on page 10

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs Helge By

Est-ce que la probabilité d’un taureau à échouer son test de semence est héréditaire? Pendant cette saison de vente de taureaux, jamais nous avons enregistré un si haut taux d’échec de test de semence ou bien, une décision reportée. Un hiver qui a apporté un climat froid, étendu de janvier à mars a joué un rôle sur les résultats sans aucun doute. Certains test échoués sont le résultat d’un coup de froid mais une hausse du compte de gouttelettes dans les tubules proximal a aussi été remarqué. Est-ce que ces résultats s’expliquent par un taureau qui a combattu le froid en se levant seulement pour aller manger et se coucher dans la paille au lieu de se promener et s’exprimer comme il le fait à l’habitude lors des journées plus chaudes? Je ne suis pas certain comment expliquer ces résultats mais pourrait-il y avoir un lien génétique à ce phénomène qui aurait refait surface à cause du climat glacial de cet hiver? Sur la route, Candace a analysé les données de certaines ventes pour essayer d’établir une tendance. Premièrement, j’avoue que nous avons pas assez de statistiques pour émettre des données accrues mais je vous invite à consulter votre programme et de voir si vous trouver un schéma. Lors d’une vente, huit sur douze taureaux provenant du même géniteur (ou 66%)ont eu une décision reportés sur le test de semence, un autre géniteur dans la même vente avait 3 de ses 6 taureaux (ou 50%) et un autre avait 7 de ses 21 progénitures (ou 33%) avec le même sort. En approfondissant mes recherches, j’ai découvert que 3 femelles ont eu des taureaux avec des résultats échoués ou reportés dans les deux dernières années. Lors d’une autre vente contenant beaucoup d’échec ou des décisions reportées, nous avons compté 8 de 12 progénitures provenant du même 8

taureau (ou 66%), un autre géniteur comptait 8 de ses 14 fils (57%) et un troisième dont 6 de ses 27 taureaux (ou 66%) qui ont reçu le même sort. Coïncidence? C’est probable. Jetez un coup d’oeil sur votre troupeau et essayer de reconnaitre une tendance entre les géniteur et les femelles et faite-moi signe si vous en reconnaissez. J’ai remarqué une tendance entre les producteurs. Certains d’entre eux aiment comparer les résultats de leur vente avec d’autres éleveurs, même durant la même vente. Laissezmoi vous dire que c’est une perte de votre temps et de votre énergie sans aucun gain. Nous ne pouvons jamais comparer des pommes avec des pommes. Aucun élevage est identique, aucune alimentation est la même, aucun programme de marketing se compare, chaque service à la clientèle est unique et nous ne pouvons pas tirer aucun bénéfice à cette mentalité. Une approche plus positive serait d’analyser certaine questions après votre vente: Quel était l’atmosphère lors de la vente? Est-ce que mes clients sont venus? Ais-je vendu autant de taureaux que l’an passé? Est-ce que ma progéniture était de la même qualité que l’an dernier? Y avait-il une raison pour laquelle certains taureaux ne se sont pas vendus? Qu’est-ce que je peux faire de différent l’an prochain pour améliorer mes résultats? Essayez d’être objectif. Si vous pondérez sur ces questions et vous continuer de vous efforcer sans trouver exactement ce qu’il s’est passé, demander l’avis de quelqu’un dont vous faite confiance qui saura vous donner une réponse objective. Lors de la réponse, rester calme et non défensif. Vous n’avez pas à croire cette personne mais cela vous fera songer. L’une des choses dont je crois qu’il faut toujours mettre beaucoup d’emphase est la préparation des animaux avant la vente. Lors de la journée des photos, les sujets doivent être à leur meilleur. Une photo prise à Charolais Banner • May 2019

la lumière du midi pour le catalogue et l’entretien de ceux-ci jusqu’au jour de la vente. Des photos de qualité avec des sujets bien préparés seront des facteurs influençables sur la clientèle, ceux qui le feuilletteront votre catalogue et ceux qui demanderons des renseignements. Une mangeoire sélective est une bonne façon d’habituer les jeunes taureaux aux grains afin de les préparer pour les photos. Il y a de cela plusieurs années, j’ai fait une rencontre intéressante avec un producteur d’une quatre-vingtaine d’années à l’exposition de Denver. Je lui ai demandé ce qu’il pensait de ce type de mangeoire et de quelle genre de mélange selon lui serait bénéfique à introduire avant le sevrage. Selon lui, une ration de grains entier d’un tier d’avoine, de blé et d’orge respectivement serait la bonne concentration. Suite à cette réponse, j’ai questionné son raisonnement pour son choix de grain entier. Il m’a demandé si j’avais déjà remarqué l’usure du ciment sous un séparateur de crème et que si je l’avais fait, je comprendrais son raisonnement. Si l’acide lactique peut endommager le ciment, on ne doit pas s’inquiéter pour le veau qui mangera du grain en entier. Il disait que même deux semaine après le sevrage que la concentration d’acide lactique présente dans l’intestin suffisait. Je ne dit pas que vous devriez tous faire la même chose mais j’ai trouvé son raisonnement très intéressant. Un sevrage hâtif facilitera une croissance et un gain de qualité rapide comparé à une alimentation exclusive au fourrage ou un manque possible de lait à un certain stade de croissance. Commencer les grains tôt avec des petites portions et plus avantageux qu’essayer de compenser plus tard lorsque vous remarquer une lacune. C’est dans cette période que les dommages à certains organes ou membres se produisent. continued on page 10

DANS NOS CHAMPS, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 En lisant ces quelques lignes, votre saison de reproduction est entamée et j’espère que vous avez écouter ce que vos clients veulent. La facilité de vêlage est un critère qui continu de faire priorité dans tout les élevages et continu d’être un facteur décisif lors des ventes de taureaux. J’espère que vos efforts ne seront pas tous misés seulement sur la performance. Dans la passé, certaines ventes de races demandaient un poids minimal qui n’était pas trop élevé. Avec toutes les améliorations génétiques, cet objectif n’est pas difficile à atteindre. La génétique Canadienne commence à faire ses marques autour du monde. Lors d’une vente de groupe à Victoria en Australie, le taureau avec le meilleur prix de vente fut atteint par un fils de Kay-R Velocity, revendu en Thaïlande. Ce phénomène sait faire parler aux prochaines ventes avec des sujets des ces progénitures qui se vendent au dessus de la moyenne. Dans notre prochain numéro, nous mettrons en valeur différents troupeaux. C’est le temps de faire des photos lorsque l’herbe est verte et que les animaux ont perdu leurs pelage hivernale et sont à leur meilleur. Donnez-moi, ou Jon, un coup de fil si vous aimeriez de l’aide avec des photos, du marketing ou notre expertise pour promouvoir votre troupeau et votre élevage. À la prochaine, Helge 10

There have been a lot of questions around the Canadian Charolais genetic evaluation in the last few weeks. Many members have called with questions around the rumour that we are moving to a North American evaluation. This article will hopefully shed some light on the current state of affairs with the genetic evaluation for CCA. Currently, the CCA conducts its’ genetic evaluation with Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI) using a multiple trait model. The genetic evaluation is single step and includes Canadian Charolais pedigree, performance, carcass/ultrasound and DNA information. Currently these evaluations are done every 6 months and include evaluations for calving ease, growth and carcass traits. There are no official plans to discontinue or change this production run. The next CCA evaluation will run in July and results will be provided to the membership and posted in the same manner as the last evaluation. These results will only be directly comparable within the Canadian Charolais population. What you may have heard is that the CCA is working on a joint project with AICA to investigate a North American Evaluation. This evaluation is in the prototype/development stage. First steps that are underway include matching the pedigree and data files from both the CCA and AICA to ensure that animals that are used across countries are properly accounted for. The joint data then has to be reviewed and the genetic evaluation models determined. These comparisons include such things are looking at genetic parameters and ranges and reasonability of the data on a regional basis. After this step a trial evaluation will be conducted. Once a set of “Test EPD” are received, the results will be adjusted so that they can be compared to the EPD already produced by each association. In this way it is possible to determine the effects of adding additional data, making model improvements and other potential impacts on the EPD from combining both the AICA and CCA datasets. While we do this Charolais Banner • May 2019

comparison in Canada, the same will also occur in the USA, so that they can determine what impacts or improvements the addition of our Canadian data makes to their evaluation. This stage is still a few steps off and there is a lot of work between today and the comparison stage. At the point of making these comparisons, if both associations like the improvements to the evaluation then discussion may ensue between associations about a production run. This would in effect mean that the EPD going forward would be calculated from a joint data set of AICA and CCA. Further to this discussion, would be a discussion as the appropriate “look and feel” of the EPD, what a joint base or scaling of EPD might look like and what traits are published. These are more political and marketing questions than technical ones, however they will likely occur once the first technical steps are completed and the results are determined. Why Would CCA be Interested in a Joint Evaluation? There are several reasons that the CCA is participating in a joint evaluation project with AICA. First, there may be some potential marketing benefits to being able to directly compare/include data from US genetics that breeders are interested in using in Canadian herds and conversely for US breeders interested in accessing Canadian genetics. A second reason is that the ability to build a larger data pool is particularly useful in the current era of genomics. Our ability to find informative gene markers more quickly provides a potentially valuable tool for Charolais breeders that want to improve the accuracy of evaluation and even assess novel traits such as feed efficiency. Combining US and Canadian data may provide a big advantage when we look at traits that are important but historically have a lot less data available. Carcass and ultrasound traits are a good example of this type of synergy, or even DNA test records. Another reason to consider a joint continued on page 16

Au cours des dernières semaines, nous avons reçu de nombreuses questions au sujet des évaluations génétiques Charolais canadienne. Plusieurs membres ont demandé des explications suivant la rumeur que les évaluations deviendront nordaméricaines. Cet article a le but d’éclairer l’état actuel des choses pour ce qui regarde les évaluations génétiques de l’Association canadienne Charolais (ACC). Actuellement, l’association effectue ses évaluations génétiques avec Angus Genetics Inc. (AGI) en utilisant un modèle à caractères multiples. L’évaluation génétique est en une étape unique et comprend les informations provenant des généalogies, la performance, les données de carcasse/échographie et l’ADN des bovins Charolais canadiens. A ce moment-ci, ces évaluations sont effectuées tous les 6 mois et comprennent des évaluations pour la facilité de vêlage, la croissance et les caractères de carcasse. On ne planifie pas d’interrompre ou modifier cette série de productions. La prochaine ronde d’évaluations de l’ACC sera exécutée en juillet et les résultats seront fournis aux membres et affichés de la même manière que la dernière évaluation. Ces résultats ne seront que directement comparables au sein de la population canadienne de bovins Charolais. Ce que vous avez peut-être entendu, c’est que l’ACC travaille à un projet conjoint avec l’association américaine pour enquêter une possibilité d’évaluation nord-américaine. Cette évaluation est au stade prototype/développement. Les premières étapes en cours comprennent la correspondance des pedigrees et des fichiers de données de l’ACC et de l’AICA afin de s’assurer que les animaux qui sont utilisés dans les deux pays sont correctement comptabilisés. Les données conjointes sont ensuite examinées et les modèles d’évaluation génétique sont déterminés. Ces comparaisons comprennent notamment des paramètres génétiques et la raisonnabilité des données sur une base régionale. Après cette étape, une évaluation d’essai sera effectuée. Une fois qu’un ensemble de "EPD Charolais Banner • May 2019

en testage" est reçu, les résultats seront ajustés afin qu’ils puissent être comparés aux EPD déjà produits par chaque association. De cette façon, il est possible de déterminer les effets de l’ajout de données supplémentaires, ce qui permet d’améliorer les modèles et d’autres impacts potentiels sur les EPD en combinant à la fois les recueils de données de l’association américaine et de la canadienne. Pendant que nous faisons cette comparaison au Canada, il en sera de même aux États-Unis, afin qu’ils puissent déterminer quels impacts ou améliorations l’ajout de nos données canadiennes auront à leurs évaluations. Nous ne sommes pas encore rendus là et il reste beaucoup de travail avant d’y arriver. Lorsque nous serons au point de faire ces comparaisons, si les deux associations sont ravies des améliorations, des discussions au sujet d’une évaluation conjointe suivront. Une ronde d’évaluations conjointe signifierait en effet que les futurs EPD seraient calculés à partir d’un ensemble commun de données de l’AICA et de l’ACC. À la suite on devra discuter comment les EPD seront présentés, à quoi une base conjointe pourrait ressembler ou l’échelle des EPD et quels caractères sont publiés. Ce sont des questions à titre plus politiques et marketing que techniques, mais elles remonteront à la surface une fois que les premières étapes techniques seront terminées et que les résultats sont déterminés. Pourquoi l’ACC est-elle intéressée par une évaluation conjointe? Il y a plusieurs raisons pour lesquelles l’ACC participe à un projet d’évaluation conjointe avec l’AICA. Premièrement, il peut y avoir des avantages commerciaux potentiels une fois en mesure de comparer directement les données de la génétique américaine que les éleveurs canadiens sont intéressés à utiliser dans leurs troupeaux et inversement pour les éleveurs américains intéressés à accéder à la génétique canadienne. Une deuxième raison est que la capacité de construire un plus grand recueil suite à la page 16

EVALUATION UPDATE, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 evaluation is the ability to make improvements to the genetic evaluation models for both associations. A simple example could be that CCA includes gestation length in the evaluation of calving ease. This improvement would likely benefit AICA. Conversely, AICA has an evaluation for scrotal size. Adding this evaluation to the CCA suite of traits may benefit some Canadian breeders. A further reason to potentially consider a joint evaluation includes the potential to cost share to increase service levels at the same or even a reduced cost. For example, the potential may exist to conduct more evaluations per year, which could be very helpful to all of those herds that may have missed the weaning data deadline due to inclement weather, delayed harvests or non traditional

production schedules. As well, the potential resources available to improve the evaluation may improve as a larger critical mass is built. While CCA currently has a very professional and reputable genetic evaluation, it is important to note that costs are rising; and research and development is increasing in speed. Developing partnerships to help deploy new developments and technology into the genetic evaluation is likely to be vital moving forward. Most other breeds already are working in some form of collaboration for genetic evaluation development and deployment. Currently, the CCA and AICA have started a joint evaluation project but are several steps away from a public joint EPD. In these early stages, we are looking at technical aspects of

connecting data sets, genetic evaluation models and comparison with the EPD we already produce. If at that stage, it is felt that it is worth moving forward, then the discussions regarding what that evaluation looks like from a marketing perspective can occur. There will be time for member feedback and input into the process. CCA is committed to providing a scientifically valid and accurate genetic evaluation to members and their customers. The joint evaluation project is really about examining options and ensuring that the Charolais breed continues to remain in a position to provide world class selection tools moving forward. We all want the “right” Charolais bull to get into the “right” situation where they can add real value to our customer and our customer’s customer.

DE LA CHAROLAIS ASSOCIATION CANADIENNE, SUITE DE LA PAGE 14 de données est particulièrement utile dans l’ère actuelle de la génomique. Notre capacité à trouver des marqueurs de gènes informatifs plus rapidement fournit un outil potentiellement précieux pour les éleveurs Charolais qui veulent améliorer la précision de l’évaluation et même d’évaluer des nouveaux traits tels que l’efficacité alimentaire. La combinaison des données américaines et canadiennes peut fournir un grand avantage lorsque nous examinons les caractères qui sont importants, mais qui ont historiquement beaucoup moins de données de disponibles. Les caractères de carcasse et données provenant d’ultrason sont un bon exemple de ce type de synergie, ou même les résultats de test ADN. Une autre raison de considérer une évaluation conjointe est la capacité d’apporter des améliorations aux modèles d’évaluation génétique pour les deux associations. Un exemple simple pourrait être que l’ACC inclut la durée de gestation dans l’évaluation de la facilité de vêlage. Cette amélioration profiterait vraisemblablement à l’AICA. Inversement, l’AICA a une évaluation de circonférence scrotale. L’ajout de 16

cette évaluation à la gamme des EPD de l’ACC peut être bénéfique pour certains éleveurs canadiens. Une autre raison de considérer potentiellement une évaluation conjointe inclut le partage des coûts, tout en augmentant les niveaux de service ou peut-être même des coûts réduits. Par exemple, on pourrait effectuer plusieurs évaluations par an, ce qui pourrait être très utile pour ceux qui ne sont pas en mesure de rencontrer les dates de tombées actuelles pour soumettre leurs données de poids pour quelques raisons que ce soit. En outre, en bâtissant une masse critique, les chances d’amélioration augmentent au même rythme que les ressources. Bien que l’ACC réalise actuellement une évaluation génétique très professionnelle et réputée, il est important de noter que les coûts pour celle-ci sont à la hausse ainsi que pour la recherche et le développement. L'établissement de partenariats pour aider à intégrer de nouveaux développements et de nouvelles technologies dans l'évaluation génétique sera probablement essentiel pour l'avenir. La plupart des autres races travaillent déjà en collaboration Charolais Banner • May 2019

pour le développement et le déploiement de leurs évaluations. À l’heure actuelle, les associations canadienne et américaines ont lancé un projet d’évaluation conjointe, mais sont loin de lancer des EPD communs. Nous sommes qu’au début de l’examen des aspects techniques pour la connexion de l’ensemble des données, des modèles d’évaluation génétique et de la comparaison des EPD déjà produits. Si, à ce stade, on estime que cela vaut la peine d'aller de l'avant, alors les discussions avanceront vers la mise en œuvre. Ceci dit, les membres seront invités à partager leurs commentaires et à contribution au processus. L’Association canadienne Charolais s’engage à fournir une évaluation génétique scientifiquement valide et précise à ses membres et à leurs clients. Le projet d'évaluation conjointe consiste réellement à examiner les options et à veiller à ce que la race Charolais continue à rester en mesure de fournir des outils de sélection de classe mondiale à l'avenir. Nous voulons tous que le «bon» taureau charolais se retrouve dans la «bonne» situation et qu’il puisse apporter une valeur ajoutée réelle à nos clients et aux leurs.

HERD HEALTH

Common Poisonous Plants Roy Lewis DVM

This article will deal with a few common poisonous plants in Western Canada (In Alberta up to 200 species of plants have been implicated in poisonings). It always pays to be alert when checking pastures, new weeds or plants should always be identified. Spring, when you first turn cattle out and fall when feed is short are the two common times for poisonings. Some weeds have nutritional value others are strict competitors to existing pasture and others yet are poisonous. Fortunately, most poisonous plants would not be the first choice for cattle, if adequate grass were available. If baled or silaged though, the percentage could get too high and deleterious signs might result. Different areas of Western Canada have poisonous plants common to a geographic region. It is very important to familiarize yourself with the poisonous plants specific to your area and especially check new pastures. As with anything in animal health, prevention is far better than the cure. Overgrazing, droughts and moving or trailing cattle when hungry all contribute to increasing the likelihood of poisonings if toxic plants or weeds are present. Cattle lacking minerals or salt may crave strange things. If you know you have poisonous weeds present, try to graze the area when their growth stage is less toxic. With plants like tall larkspur monkshood or water hemlock physically removing the plants can be practised if they are not too widespread. The effort will be well worth it to prevent future cattle deaths. The issue with most plant poisonings is they are either fatal or cause irreparable damage to internal body organs. Treatment for most poisonings does not lead to much success partially because sudden death is the presenting complaint. Most attack the 18

central nervous system and other than controlling the convulsions and other CNS signs, cattle must detoxify the poison on their own. Many other common weeds such as tansy can cause liver damage over time. Since there is insidious damage by the time clinical signs of liver failure are seen, the disease has progressed too far to be reversed. The most dreaded plant is Water Hemlock because so very little of the poison (primarily contained in the root bulb) is needed for death. Consumption of one root will kill a cow. It is found near a water source such as around dugouts or on-stream banks. In our area, it is often confused with either the cow parsnip or water parsnip. The much more common cow parsnip actually has fairly good grazing value. In drought conditions, when cattle graze more low land where less palatable grasses exist, is when poisonings occur. Likewise, in real wet conditions cattle are more apt to pull the plant right out and consume the bulb. Fortunately, I have never had a case of water hemlock poisoning. Water hemlock may be established for several years before it is noticed. This is why when pasturing cattle great distances from home,you need to find out if there are any local poisonous plants. You may be surprised what you will find out from talking to the locals. This applies to all animal diseases. Certain areas throughout Western Canada have their own unique disease, or

poisonous plant prevalences. Another common poisoning occurs from Tall Larkspur especially in the south in Alberta towards the foothills and over into the BC interior. This plant grows tall and has a distinct bluish to purple flower. The consumption of as little as 0.7% of young plants is toxic. A lot of people use larkspur, also called Delphinium, in ornamental flower gardens. The tame varieties are supposedly not as toxic, but I personally can’t tell the difference by looking at them. Watch for any carryover from nearby acreages or cattle getting loose in flower gardens. Not only will the acreage owner be mad at you, poisoned cattle could result. Another common ornamental, which is poisonous, is monkshood. For identification of these poisonous plants and other noxious weeds, there are several good publications put out by the federal or provincial governments. Also, several good websites both in Canada and the US by the departments of agriculture outline signs and geographic distribution as well as pictorial representations. Try the Alberta site www1.agric.gov.ab.ca.or the publication “Poisonous Plants of Western Canada” an Agriculture Canada publication. A lot of the more common weeds can cause problems if grazed or fed to excess. This may be with baled hay on a newly seeded field where volunteer weeds have come up. Intensive rotational grazing has many good continued on page 20

MARKETING

Social Media Marketing Chris Lane, Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Western Agribition

What if you sent out birthday invitations but didn’t have a place to host the party? I see a lot of social media marketing that’s doing exactly that. We can be forgiven for launching full-fledged into social media marketing on the big platforms of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; that’s what we keep hearing we need to do to stay relevant and profitable. It’s a great invitation, but we still need somewhere to go. Social media is certainly unmatched when it comes to connecting and reaching a very specific group of people – or customers. We’re getting better at it all the time. A few years ago, we were just learning how to read analytics and metrics around “reach,” “impressions,” “views” and “engagements.” Now, we’re learning the techniques to increase and manipulate each one of those measures. Problem is, most of us still don’t really know what all those numbers really mean or if they’re driving business as well as they could. Why? Well, just BEING on social media isn’t the whole picture. It’s a great tool for building your brand and advertising the benefits of your program but it’s rarely where any actual business takes place. It can do an excellent job of reaching your potential customers, but it’s actually pretty bad at getting the deal done.

Here’s why: 1) Social media is too brief and fleeting to fully inform anyone who’s really doing their homework. If you can reduce your entire program to a tweet, are you inspiring confidence that you’re managing the complexities of a top-shelf breeding program? 2) Your posts are competing with everyone else’s. The average Facebook video view is less than 5 seconds before they start scrolling, looking for the next thing. Social media is built to generate and turn over a lot of content, hoping something sticks with an audience. Most doesn’t. Need proof? Count how many tweets you scroll past before you engage with one. 3) Social media has trust issues. For better or worse, people are suspect of the claims they see on social media and there’s a lot of suspicion about how much we see in our feeds is factually true. Your marketing campaign may not be “fake news,” but there’s a lot of cynicism out there to get past. Another big factor is that unless a social media post actually clicks through to somewhere more private, secure and without all the cacophony of the platform, it’s simply not a good place to make a deal. In other words, a lot of invitations to come to the party but we still need somewhere to go. That’s why it’s still important – even in 2019 - to spend as much time on your website as it is on your social

media. Digital marketing is a holistic operation: a website without any reach is just as bad as a social media campaign with no website to anchor it. The website is where you build a bigger brand experience and a more credible customer touchpoint. It’s the delivery of the promise your social media posts are making. If your social posts aren’t telling people where to go once you’ve got their attention, you’ve just given them an invitation with no address! One of the best examples out there is the airline industry. They drive a significant amount of their sales traffic via social media but they still need a top-quality website to handle the booking, sell the ad-ons and build the brand. What’s more; customers still want the option to talk to someone, so airlines are still one of the biggest users of person-to-person interactions. Imagine that: a business strategy that relies on old fashioned human contact in 2019! And in agriculture, it’s even more important. We’re still lucky enough to be in an industry that values a deal done with words and a handshake. We don’t always get the chance to do business like that, but spending as much time managing your website as your social media will ensure that next time you send out the invitations, your guests will know where they’re going.

HERD HEALTH, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 points, however, one bad point can be really sick from any condition aborting leaving cattle in an area too long is a self defense mechanism. In order forcing them to graze less palatable to survive, the fetus may be the first to plants which have toxic effects.

new pastures, or in drought conditions where cattle are forced to eat less palatable plants and report any sudden deaths or nervous conditions to your veterinarian. Autopsies should be done on all sudden deaths and it never hurts to drive the perimeter of pastures cattle are tuned out into. Avoid the grazing pitfalls described which can lead to these poisonings and hopefully you will never experience them on your farm. Let’s have a trouble-free grazing season everybody.

CCYA – Building the Breed

Andre Steppler Steppler Farms Ltd. Miami, MB

How has CCYA evolved since you were a member?

How is it different from 4-H?

I think I am able to see the benefits better now than when I was a participant. There is so much mentorship in the program. When I participated, I was a senior and never realized how big of a role came with that position. That is a huge thing that has changed. I saw how much the older kids hung out and worked with the younger kids to help and to teach them while having fun.

There is a different degree of professionalism. I think in CCYA, the kids are more focused and interested in the industry instead of just being there because their parents sent them. I also feel 4-H has a component of people there to sell a steer for a premium. 4-H is oriented around your animal, where CCYA is oriented around the development of the youth in various skills. There is a broader spectrum of educational challenges offered in CCYA, with marketing as an example. They are focused on working as a team at CCYA instead of as individuals or families. Depending on the 4-H club leader, of course, but there is more of a community feel in the barn at CCYA than in 4-H.

I am happy to say it hasn’t changed much, it is still very much organized by the kids. I see in other breeds it has ended up being adult run with a lot of emphasis on advertising for certain farms. It ends up being just another show. In CCYA, they work as a group and promote their group while they are there.

In 4-H, you work as an individual and compete against others. In CCYA, a lot of the event is based on working with others and within your group.

The program has evolved into building not only skills, but relationships. There are kids forming friendships for life. They are learning skills that are different from grooming, clipping and showmanship, which is a broader expansion that has happened over time. We saw in Brandon the number of young kids involved in the program and the more we can do for them, the stronger this breed will be in the long run. If through having fun and learning in the breed, we can solidify them to this breed, it will strengthen us long-term. It was fantastic to see the young kids there.

I don’t think you see the level of community in 4-H as at CCYA. I think 4-H is very good at teaching basic skills, but CCYA prepares the kids more for the world where we market our animals. As a breeder, I can see my kids learning what they need in this industry more in one week of CCYA, than they can in a couple of years in 4-H. I am a big supporter of 4-H and it is an amazing program, but seeing our kids’ growth in that one week was incredible. I think it was the close quarters of working together as groups, and mixing in different groups within the week. Whereas with 4-H, they are always with the same kids all the time, within their own age group. We are lucky with the seniors we have in CCYA, as they go over and above to help and bring the younger kids along.

The first CCYA I attended was at Olds College, there were 17 participants. No one brought cattle and it was more educational and less competitive than they are now. We had multi species judging, carcass evaluation, the grading system, structural soundness, the basics of EPDs and how to use and compare them. It was a great event where we got to know all the participants really well.

CCYA is different because you don’t need to bring cattle to attend and there are different competitions than in 4-H, such as team selling and team marketing. The herdsman groups encourage participants to work with people they typically wouldn’t and the atmosphere at CCYA encourages even more teamwork and mentorship.

CCYA – Building the Breed What do you value most about CCYA?

What are the benefits of traveling outside your home province to attend a CCYA Conference & Show?

Does the youth member have to have an interest or experience in showing to benefit from CCYA?

I really value getting my kids out of their comfort zones in a safe environment. Getting them to interact with kids of varying ages without parental prompting and being confident in various situations. As they grow in these social skills, I hope to see them growing industry skills and knowledge so they can become strong seniors and mentors for juniors in the future. Once they excel to that level, I hope to see our children giving back to the kids coming up behind them. Being able to teach those skills is just as important as learning them, giving back to the program.

It gives the kids exposure to different environments, and in turn different ways that people select cattle to go with that environment. They hear different viewpoints and marketing ideas. It takes them out of their comfort zone of people they already know and forces them to develop social skills again. We are going to make a family trip out of the event and take advantage of being some place new by taking some family down-time together.

No, the showing part does not have a strong importance in the event. There is so much more to get out of it – the networking, the marketing, how to market yourself and how to promote yourself. These are all way more important than showing. Once they are there, and they learn some showing skills, it just becomes another skill-set to market. The CCYA program is definitely focused on the individual development of the youth, not on the animal.

We have enjoyed watching our kids evolve from shy kids to taking an active role in participating and organizing the event.

It gets the kids introduced to a completely different group of youth every single time. It gets you away from some of the biases you may have in your home province shows. It also gives them an exposure to the layout of Canada and what different parts of the provinces are like.

I think they should have an interest, but they don’t have to have any experience. There are a lot of kids that have an interest and have fun throughout their CCYA years learning and there are kids that come out of the program as professional showmen. It doesn’t matter where you start, or where you end up, the experience gained while having fun is worth it.

In the years we were involved in CCYA, I learned a lot and met a lot of people that we do business with today. Even the ones that aren’t in Charolais are still in the industry. That is huge because we are building the Charolais business through this program. At home we focus more on primary production and CCYA gives them an opportunity to focus on broader skills. They learn from other kids and see what they are doing. This is the first year our kids attended and they are already talking about what they will do different next year or within their 4-H group because of their exposure to new ideas. When you gather kids from across the country, the kids get exposed to different things from art, photography and marketing, to the ways they are working with their animals. They learn so much. You bring such a cross-section of kids together that it provides many different perspectives.

Often we think it is too far to go to CCYA out of province, but the experience is always different. You are going to meet new people. When you visit farms, you are going to see how different operations work. Every province has things they like to focus on and try, and their organizing committee is going to handle things differently. Every province wants outside provinces to support their programs, so it is important for us to support other provinces as well. It is part of being part of the Charolais community and helping it grow.

Showing is the smallest portion of CCYA. You can learn various skills about presenting animals in the ring, but it is the smallest reason to attend CCYA. We can work on handling and showmanship at home, but we can’t work on commaradery and friendships. Even if they come with absolutely no show skills, it doesn’t matter. They will learn some to gain confidence, but it is the smallest part of CCYA.

As a member I valued developing long-term friendships. As a parent attending CCYA I value watching the children develop new skills and grow. I have noticed many kids evolve from shy and recluse into leaders.

Travel outside of your home province allows you to learn about different agricultural practices and see different country. It also allows you to develop national connections. The highlight of my CCYA adventures was when three of us drove to Stillwater, Oklahoma, for the American Charolais Junior Heifer show and leadership conference.

If the member has a slight interest in the cattle business, attending the CCYA conference will have them addicted to the industry and have them coming back for more at the next CCYA.

CCYA – Building the Breed Do you have to have cattle at the show to attend?

How do parents benefit from CCYA?

What one thing would you tell parents that have never attended CCYA?

No you definitely don’t need to have cattle there. It is nice to have an animal there to allow the kids to learn or feel responsible for skills in caring for the animal, but their team should involve all of the youth whether they have cattle there or not.

I think the parents can equally benefit by attending CCYA. One, parents can learn just as much as the youth by listening to the educational seminars. Two, it’s great to see your kids learn and achieve at the event. Three, the networking you can do throughout the week is huge. It’s a nice atmosphere to get to know each other. No pressure of selling or purchasing an animal, you get to just relax and have fun.

I would tell parents that have never attended CCYA they will be blown away by the interaction and the knowledge their kids will gain. The confidence level in my kids just after one CCYA was incredible.

No you don’t have to have cattle as there are usually enough cattle there from the core group and home province group so all kids can participate in showmanship. It may be better if the younger kids don’t have their own cattle, it is less pressure and they can work with the older kids to learn. As they get older, it is definitely beneficial to have their own cattle and the responsibility that goes with it. There are only 5 points awarded for having your own cattle and no extra points are awarded for placings, so kids can compete through participation and the show results are not the totality of the event.

We benefit from being able to watch our kids grow in the industry. We see how they meet and work with others and it is a beneficial experience for them to grow and prepare for leaving home in the future.

We look at this as a family vacation and we would say we vacation with some of the nicest people you could ever meet.

No, we brought two heifers this year because I sort of thought we had to bring them, but it wasn’t necessary. As long as enough people bring cattle to share, it isn’t necessary. We will always try to bring one just to be sure there are enough for the participants and I think there has to be a core group of people prepared to do that so kids from a long distance don’t feel they can’t come without one. When it is in our home province, we really need to do that so when we travel a greater distance, others are willing to make sure there are cattle for our kids. It is a favour we can give back.

Networking is a big one. At CCYA, you have the opportunity to meet and visit with people that you don’t normally see. As well, I believe you learn to let your kids go and realize their potential. You see what they can accomplish without your help and see opportunities afterwards to help them grow.

Don't wait or hesitate. I attended CCYA when I was much older and after taking my 7 and 9 year olds to their first in Brandon, I realized I missed out on a lot of opportunity. This includes the skills learned, the lifelong friendships being built and the growth in confidence in what they can accomplish.

No, the herdsman groups allow you to work on other people’s cattle while at the show and you can borrow/share cattle for the competitions. You can still gain just as many valuable skills and friendships if you don’t bring your own cattle.

Parents benefit from CCYA by developing friendships and networking with fellow Charolais breeders.

Don’t deprive your children of this exciting opportunity to meet like minded people and gain a skill set and connections that will benefit them throughout their career and lifetime.

OBITUARY

Dale Moulton 1942 – 2019

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Dale Albert Moulton of Alix, Alberta, on Friday, 22 February 2019, at the Lacombe Continuing Care Centre. Dale was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario on 26 November 1942. Dale’s parents moved back to Hoosier, Saskatchewan, in 1944 to take over the Thompson (Dale’s grandparents) family farm. Dale took over the family farm at age 19 after his father’s passing. After acquiring his private pilot’s licence in 1966, Dale purchased a Luscombe plane for crop spraying, and also flew for pleasure as flying was one of his passions. Dale married Rena (Slater) in 1967 and they had 3 children – Audra, Garry and Greg. Dale and Rena had a mixed farming operation at Hoosier. The family moved to Alix, Alberta in 1979 to pursue Dale’s life-long dream of being at the heart of the cattle 38

industry where he would focus on the growth and development of his Charolais herd. Dale and his family were actively involved with the farm and breed promotion; including annual bull sales at the farm, production sales and cattle shows throughout western Canada. Dale was active on the board of directors of the Alberta Charolais Association for several years and was honored with the Alberta Charolais Association Breeder of the Year Award in 1987 and the Pioneer Award in 2013. Dale and Rena met, and did business with, many people from around the world throughout their involvement in the cattle industry. Dale was always an entrepreneur. He and his brothers, Don and Vern, established Bar Diamond Farm & Ranch Supplies, a local farm and feed supply store, in Alix, Alberta in 1984, which remained in the family until 2014. Dale suffered a traumatic brain injury on 1 April 2008 in a farming accident. He spent several months in Charolais Banner • May 2019

rehabilitation therapy at the Halvar Jonson Centre for Brain Injury, then was able to spend three years at home before requiring further assistance. Dale’s inner drive and strength of character served him well during the many health struggles of his last ten years. He remained strong through many trials and is now at peace. Dale is survived by his wife Rena; daughter Audra and grandsons Dustin and Wyatt Horvey; son-in-law Wes Horvey; son Greg (Renee) and grandson Lucas; brother Don (Elaine); brother Vern (Setsuko); mother-in-law Vera Slater; brother-in-law Barrie (Delphine) Slater; as well as nieces, cousins, great nieces and great nephews. Dale is predeceased by his parents, Ross (1961) and Dora (1995) Moulton, son Garry Moulton (1994), father-in-law Alec Slater (1997); sister Joan Armstrong (2008), and grandson Blake Moulton (2014). Dale will be greatly missed by the many friends and family whose lives he touched.

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

A core mandate of CBBC is to coordinate the international market development activities for the purebred beef cattle industry. A question that is regularly asked is how we determine our priority markets. It isn’t a simple response, but our priorities are a collaborative effort of CBBC and international activities of our members. We determine our key markets based on what is reported to us by our members, which is a reflection of their priority markets. We also take into account export statistics provided by CFIA, AAFC, Statistics Canada and other sources to determine market potential. We also factor whether we have an export health certificate with meaningful access either in place or being negotiated for either semen, embryos or live breeding cattle. International markets are always in a constant state of fluctuation dependent on multiple factors including but not limited to the weather, economics and government programs. CBBC

assembles the information provided by our members and then submits an application to the AAFC CAPAgriMarketing program, which helps offset the cost of international market development and promotion for our members for approved activities. In general, activities that members submit for funding must promote Canadian genetics and not be at the detriment of another breed while demonstrating a positive return on investment for the industry. This can be a challenge as a priority market for one breed may not be important for other breeds, so there needs to be a balance of market potential and value. Similarly, a country may be an important market for exporting semen but not suitable for live cattle or embryos. Once a priority market is determined, it is then a joint effort by breed associations, export companies and our government to establish key contacts within a market to generate sales. These can be government officials, industry organizations, cattle producers and other influencers. We regularly see increases in sales in

markets following activities from our members. The promotion of our Canadian genetics internationally benefits our industry and those involved and will continue to play an important part of our activities and those of our members. The Canadian Beef Industry Conference “Securing our Future” will be held August 13-15, 2019, in Calgary at the BMO Center on Stampede Grounds. This year will feature two keynote speakers: Timothy Caufield and Karl Subban. CBBC will be hosting the 3rd annual Technical Forum the afternoon of August 13 to discuss advancements in science and technology with a focus on genetic improvement and it is open to anyone interested in attending. Conference registration is now open and available at www.canadianbeefindustry.com. I encourage you to register early and save a few dollars with the early bird rate. I look forward to seeing you throughout the summer and at the conference.

Prizes All prizes and placings will be announced only at the banquet on the final night, with the exception of conformation. CONFERENCE AND SHOW REGULATIONS 1. Absolutely NO parent/adult participation will be allowed. Barn bosses and ambassador volunteers will be monitoring the barn, wash rack, and tie-out areas at all times. Any parent/adult participation may result in a deduction of aggregate and scholarship points from the youth member in question. Senior members are encouraged to help the junior members. This includes the set-up and takedown of the stall. 2. All purebred animals entered must be registered with the CCA. Crossbred heifers do not need to be registered. Calves should be registered and must be tattooed by show day. No tattooing will be permitted on the grounds. Original registration certificates must accompany purebred cattle to the show, including all calves. Tattoos will be checked upon arrival. 3. Members showing animals that are owned by them or their family can enter as many head as they choose, keeping in mind that they are responsible for showing their entries. Members who cannot bring their own cattle but wish to enter the conformation show may enter an animal belonging to another Charolais breeder. However, members entering cattle not owned by them or their family are limited to only one entry. 4. Animals must be shown by the youth member entering them unless more than one entry is in the class. 5. There is no limit placed on the number of entries per class, however, the youth will be responsible for finding other youth to help them show. 6. The entry fee is $15 per class. Calves may be split off cows, but in the case of a pair that goes on to the finale, the heifer calves will be ineligible to be shown in the heifer calf division. 7. Classes will be determined after the entry deadline and will contain approximately eight to ten animals. 8. All animals are expected to be broke to lead. If in a case where the animal in question poses a threat to the safety of the other participants, the owner will be asked to remove the animal from the show barn. The Barn Boss will have final say. 9. A bedding base will be provided to all participants. Exhibitors will be responsible for their own feed for the duration of the conference. Night tie-outs will be available, as well as pens for nurse cows. 10. For all CCYA members the consumption of alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited on show grounds or during any show activities. Failure to comply with this rule will result in immediate disqualification and removal from the remainder of the Conference and Show. 11. Unethical fitting practices are not allowed in any of the competitions. This includes the use of artificial tail heads, and artificial fillers such as stomach filling; unless deemed necessary by a veterinarian. 12. Surgical alterations are not permitted on any animal being exhibited, unless a valid veterinarian certificate is produced that explains the reason for them. 13. All participants are expected to participate in all events, unless illness forces them out of competition. Youth not participating in all events will lose aggregate and scholarship points. Any youth that chooses not to participate in all events may be disqualified from all competitions and show, and forfeit any prizes or awards that they may have otherwise earned. 14. The show shirt is expected to be worn for conformation, showmanship and team grooming. Name tags are to be worn at all times. 15. The hosting CCYA Conference and Show Organizing Committee, Agricultural Society, or any of the show advisors or volunteers is not responsible for loss, injury or accident to animals, property or humans for the duration of the Conference and Show. 16. First time participants will have their CCYA membership fees waived for the following year. 17. By submitting the attached entry form and signing the Code of Conduct, the youth member agrees to abide by all the above rules and regulations for the competitions and the cattle show. A group of adult advisors, including the Youth Coordinator have been appointed by the hosting Conference and Show Organizing Committee to enforce the rules and regulations. The hosting CCYA Conference and Show Organizing Committee has the power to, at any time, intervene to settle disputes or clarify the rules.
