Charolais Banner • May 2021


POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

As you go through this issue, you will see how strong the Charolais bull market was this spring, and how positive the future looks for the breed here in Canada. Near the back of the magazine, you will see the sale summary chart and wow! There were three more sales reported than last year, with 240 more bulls selling. The exciting number though is the average, which was up $760/bull and the total gross was up over 4.3 million dollars. In the 40 years we have been doing this summary, this is by far the highest in all categories. The sales were better than I think many anticipated when considering the feeder calf market the past six months. Picking up market share with many new buyers definitely pushed the sales higher. There is also increased interest in females and a surge in new members like we haven’t seen in many years. Another thing I found interesting this spring were the number of commercial producers who are now buying Charolais bulls to breed their heifers. As breeders, we just have to make sure they are getting bulls that will calve heifers with nothing big in

YOUTH NEWS

the pedigree that could come out to bite them. I feel with this happening, we know we are winning the decades-old concern about the calving ability of the Charolais bull. Shorter gestations, lighter birth weights and excellent calf vigour at birth have all contributed to this change in attitude. Again this spring, I also visited with more producers who are putting a white bull on black cows for the first time. This is where our biggest market potential is and will be in the future. On the international scene, with the cancellation of the World Congress last year in Australia and the World Technical Conference in the Czech Republic this summer, Charolais Charbray International is hosting a virtual show online. This is a great opportunity for breeders from around the world to promote their product. The three show divisions are French, Purebred and Charbray, with five age splits of both males and females. With each entry you can place an ad in the virtual show book promoting your operation and any semen and embryos you may want to offer the world. Our pool of nine judges (three per division) from eight countries will rank the classes. The judging will be done on video submissions with complete information for this

event at www.charolaisinternational. com. Entries are open now and close November 30th. Next year, things being somewhat back to normal, the World Congress is being hosted by the United Kingdom from July 7th to 17th with stops in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. There is a video preview again on the Charolais International website. 2023 is the World Technical Conference in the Czech Republic, and then in the summer of 2024, Canada is slated to host the World Congress. I hope seeding goes well for everyone and there are good moisture conditions for grass and hay everywhere this summer. Jon Wright, Robbie Chomik and I will be touring the country the next couple of months and now is a great time to get the herdsires pictured on grass, as well as some females for websites or bull sale catalogues next spring. Give us a call early so we can plan our schedules to get into as many yards as possible. The next issue is the 55th Annual Herdsire edition which is a great place to showcase your program. Be a part of it. Until next time, Helge

DES POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs

Helge By

En parcourant ce numéro, vous verrez à quel point les ventes de taureaux Charolais était fortes ce printemps et à quel point l’avenir est positif pour la race ici au Canada. Au verso du magazine, vous verrez le tableau récapitulatif des ventes et wow! Il y a eu trois ventes de plus que l’année dernière, un ajout de 240 taureaux de plus. Le chiffre passionnant est cependant la moyenne, qui a augmenté de 760$ par taureau et le total brut qui a augmenté de plus de 4,3 millions de dollars. Depuis les 40 ans que nous rédigeons ce résumé, c’est de loin le plus élevé de toutes les catégories. Les ventes ont été meilleures et je pense que beaucoup l’avaient prévu en considérant le marché des veaux d’engraissement des six derniers mois. Le fait de gagner des parts de marché avec de nombreux nouveaux acheteurs a définitivement poussé les ventes à la hausse. Il y a également un intérêt accru pour les femelles et une augmentation du nombre de nouveaux membres comme nous n’en avons pas vu depuis de nombreuses années. Une autre chose que j’ai trouvée intéressante ce printemps était le nombre de producteurs commerciaux qui achètent maintenant des taureaux Charolais pour élever leurs génisses. En tant qu’éleveurs, nous devons simplement nous assurer qu’ils

obtiennent des taureaux qui vêleront des génisses sans rien de trop gros dans le pedigree qui pourrait revenir contre eux. Je sens qu’avec cela, nous savons que nous gagnons du terrain sur la vieille préoccupation de plusieurs décennies concernant la facilitée des vêlages des taureaux Charolais. Des gestations plus courtes, un poids à la naissance plus léger et une excellente vigueur à la naissance ont tous contribué à ce changement d’attitude. Encore une fois ce printemps, j’ai également rendu visite à d’autres producteurs qui mettent un taureau blanc avec des vaches noires pour la première fois. C’est là que se trouve et sera notre plus grand potentiel du marché à venir. Sur la scène internationale, avec l’annulation du Congrès mondial l’an dernier en Australie et de la Conférence technique mondiale en République Tchèque cet été, Charolais Charbray International organise un spectacle virtuel. C’est une excellente occasion pour les éleveurs du monde entier de promouvoir leur lignées. Les trois divisions d’exposition sont le français, la race pure et le Charbray, avec cinq divisions d’âge pour les mâles et femelles respectivement. Avec chaque inscription, vous pouvez placer une annonce dans le livre virtuel de l’exposition faisant la promotion de votre opération et de toute semence et embryons que vous voudriez peut-être offrir aux acheteurs mondiaux. Le groupe de neuf juges (trois par division) de

huit pays jugeront les classes. Le jugement se fera par soumissions vidéo avec des informations complètes pour cet événement sur www.charolaisinternational.com. Les inscriptions sont maintenant ouvertes et se terminent le 30 novembre. L’année prochaine, les choses étant quelque peu revenues à la normale, le congrès mondial est organisé par le Royaume-Uni du 7 au 17 juillet avec des escales en Angleterre, au pays de Galles, en Écosse et en Irlande du Nord. Un aperçu vidéo est à nouveau disponible sur le site de Charolais International. 2023 est la conférence technique mondiale en République Tchèque, puis à l’été 2024, le Canada devrait accueillir le congrès mondial. J’espère que les semences se passent bien pour tout le monde et qu’il y a de bonnes conditions d’humidité pour l’herbe et le foin partout cet été. Jon Wright, Robbie Chomik et moi visiterons le pays au cours des prochains mois et c’est le moment idéal pour faire photographier votre troupeau sur l’herbe, ainsi que certaines femelles pour des sites web ou des catalogues de vente de taureaux au printemps prochain. Appelez-nous tôt afin que nous puissions planifier nos horaires pour entrer dans le plus de champs possible. Le prochain numéro est la 55e édition annuelle de Herdsire, un endroit idéal pour présenter votre élevage. Faites-en partie. À la prochaine, Helge

LORNE LAKUSTA

With bull sale season wrapping up, it is great to have such a positive topic to write about. Bull sales were very strong from coast to coast with record numbers of bulls sold for record prices. I had the pleasure of attending many sales this spring and took the opportunity to visit with many commercial producers. The message was the same from most, “if you are not taking advantage of Charolais genetics in your program, you are leaving a lot of profit on the table”. The number of breeders buying Charolais bulls for the first time was high, and the number of producers that sampled our breed and have come back for more Charolais bulls, is a real testament to the members of the Canadian Charolais Association. Keep up the great work! In February, the CCA launched the GPA program (Genomic Producer Advancement). We are receiving a lot of questions and interest in this initiative. To recap the program, members are eligible to receive 10% of the number of females you had enrolled in 2020, in 100K genomic tests at no cost to you. For more information or to order your DNA kits please contact the CCA office. The board of directors also approved moving from two to six EPD runs this year, allowing more breeders to take part in the EPD evaluation sooner. The remainder of the runs in 2021 will be May 1, July 1, September 1 and

November 1. Please have all the data entered by the 25th of the month prior to be included in the run. The CCA has once again made the difficult decision to cancel the in person Annual General Meeting. The board realizes that we still need to move forward with business, so we will be conducting our director nominations and elections a little differently. A nomination form has been sent to all active members, and on this form, there is a list of the positions available as well as if the current director is seeking re-election. If you would like to nominate someone, please fill out the form and send it back to the CCA office, if you are nominating, please check with that person to make sure they will let their name stand. Once we receive the nominations back, we will send out a ballot to vote for directors. There are 7 positions up for elections this year with 2 being in Alberta, 2 in Saskatchewan, 1 in Manitoba, 1 in Ontario and 1 Director at Large. The membership will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual information session on June 18th, 2021, with the board and myself giving updates and reports. There will also be time allocated for a question-and-answer session. This virtual information session will be conducted via ZOOM. The staff off the CCA are still working remotely, when calling the office please select the staff member’s extension you would like to speak to. If your call is not answered, please leave a message and we will return your call ASAP.

La saison des ventes de taureaux étant maintenant terminée, il est formidable de pouvoir rédiger sur un sujet si positif. Les ventes de taureaux ont été très fortes d’un bout à l’autre du pays avec un nombre record de taureaux vendus à des prix sans précédent. J’ai eu le plaisir d’assister à de nombreuses ventes au cours du printemps et j’en ai profité pour jaser avec plusieurs producteurs commerciaux. Le message était le même de la plupart, « si vous ne profitez pas de la génétique charolaise dans votre programme, vous ignorez la chance d’augmenter vos rendements ». Le nombre d’éleveurs qui ont acheté des taureaux Charolais pour la première fois est à la hausse, et ceux qui ont échantillonné notre race dans le passé, sont revenus acquérir plus de taureaux. La demande est un témoignage véritable du travail des membres de l’Association canadienne Charolais. Lâchez-pas! En février, la ACC a lancé le programme GPA (Genomic Producer Advancement). Nous recevons beaucoup de questions et d’intérêt pour cette initiative. Pour récapituler le programme, les membres sont admissibles à recevoir des tests génomiques de 100K sans frais équivalent à 10 % du nombre de femelles que vous avez enrôlées en 2020. Pour de plus amples renseignements ou pour commander vos trousses d’ADN, veuillez communiquer avec le bureau de la ACC. Le conseil d’administration a également approuvé le passage de 2 à 6 rondes de calcul d’EPD cette année, permettant à un plus grand nombre d’éleveurs de participer à l’évaluation génétique. Le reste des rondes pour 2021 seront le 1er mai, le 1er juillet, le 1er septembre et le 1er novembre. Pour Charolais Banner • May 2021

Craig Scott, General Manager

que les données soient incluses dans une ronde, elles doivent être soumises avant le 25 du mois précédent le jour du calcul. Encore une fois, l’Association canadienne Charolais a dû prendre la décision difficile d’annuler l’assemblée générale annuelle en personne. Le conseil d’administration est bien conscient que nous devons aller de l’avant avec les affaires de l’association, alors nous allons procéder à nos nominations d’administrateur et aux élections un peu différemment. Un formulaire de mise en candidature a été envoyé à tous les membres actifs, et sur ce formulaire, il y a une liste des postes disponibles. Si le directeur actuel est intéressé à se faire réélire, cette information apparait sur le formulaire. Si vous souhaitez nommer quelqu’un, veuillez remplir le formulaire et le faire parvenir au bureau de l’ACC. Veuillez-vous assurer que la personne que vous nommez, est bien d’accord de présenter sa candidature. Une fois que les nominations seront compilées, un bulletin de vote sera distribué. Il y a 7 postes en élection cette année, dont deux en Alberta, deux en Saskatchewan, un au Manitoba, un en Ontario et un administrateur général. Les membres auront l’occasion de participer à une séance d’information virtuelle le 18 juin 2021 où le conseil d’administration ainsi que moi-même présenteront des mises à jour et des rapports. Il y aura également du temps alloué pour une séance de questionsréponses. Cette session d’information virtuelle se déroulera via ZOOM. Le personnel de l’ACC travaille toujours à distance, donc lorsque vous appelez le bureau, s’il vous plaît choisir la prolongation du membre du personnel a qui vous souhaitez parler. S’il vous plaît laisser un message et nous vous retournerons votre appel dès que possible.

HERD HEALTH

Fine Tuning of Herd Health & Management Programs Roy Lewis DVM

They say the only constant is change. We know in the cattle business, if we stop improving and accept the status quo, we will get behind. I have decided to put together a bunch of ideas of changes that are now happening in the cattle industry. As I travel across the country and meet with producer groups and veterinarians, many different production tips come to mind. Hopefully some may be applicable to your operation and help you improve the performance and efficiencies of your farming or ranching operation. Have discussions with your veterinarian, nutritionist or fellow cattle producer on whether these points may be applicable to your operation. Many of these changes can improve performance even though your Charolais herd may already be performing very well. Look at the one or two things that may improve this even in a minor way, and it may be worth it. Fellow breeders will also have great ideas so don’t hesitate to network when the world gets back to normal. Vaccinology is making great strides with new intranasal technologies and broader vaccines to cover more diseases in one shot. There are newer intranasal cannulas and even guns now on the market that are easy to use and really get a good application of the vaccine well up into the nostril. Spring is an ideal time to review if new products are to be added. Remember vaccines help prevent diseases and that is far better than treating and we can hopefully cut down our antibiotic usage. We don’t want to pass off BVD persistently infected calves to the feeding sector so there is heavy reliance on the cow calf sector to wean vaccinated calves. 16

Even vaccines for footrot and pinkeye are becoming more commonplace especially on your herd bulls. Clostridial disease is always present but remember specific diseases such as tetanus or redwater only come in certain clostridial vaccines. We see more and more cases of clostridial disease out there in spite of there being very good vaccines available that are inexpensive. Work with your veterinarian to make sure timing is right on the vaccines and handle and administer them properly. Every time you process, these thoughts should enter your mind. What vaccines do I need and is there anything new that will give my cattle more comprehensive coverage and hopefully less clinical disease? Are cattle travelling to, or coming from geographic areas where specific diseases are more prevalent? These are very important facts to know. Pain control or NSAIDs are often mentioned in the beef codes of practice for painful procedures such as castration or dehorning. With your purebred herds, only the castration of the older bulls that don’t make the grade are where NSAIDs are really needed. In veterinary medicine most times we work on sick cattle and they have a fever or perform surgery and one of the NSAIDs may be indicated. Your veterinarian now has a wide range of these NSAIDs to choose from. They even come in convenient methods of application such as orally or pour on, as well as the traditional injectable ones. Some have very short slaughter withdrawals, while others are longer. They make the cattle keep their appetites and recover quicker, so in addition to being the right thing, they are economically very justified. They are all prescription drugs, but your veterinarian should be up-to-date on which ones to use in Charolais Banner • May 2021

which situations for you. The greatest observation I have had is how quick recoveries, from claw amputations, castrations, etc., are when NSAIDs are used in a timely manner. The public are also talking about pain killers from an animal welfare perspective, so it simply is becoming the right thing to do. With parasite control monitoring of herds, fecals for internal parasites have become commonplace and many strategies, including strategic deworming at pasture, are keeping producers and their veterinarians cognizant of different ways to deworm, knowing that a certain level of parasites reduces production and leads to greater health problems, especially in calves and yearlings. More products are available for lice and fly control and some even have some mosquito control, which additionally helps production on grass. The critical thing is timing of application and switching products if resistance by the horn flies starts to become a problem. When purchasing your breeding bulls (this applies to purebred breeders as well) carefully examine all the information such as semen forms, EPDs and any genetic information. They are half the genetics in your herd unless you’re AI’ing and warrant special attention depending if you want bulls of calving ease performance or carcass characteristics. Many breeders now prevaccinate for footrot and the health status and vaccination history is indicated in the catalogue. As an industry, we need to do more testing and get more information on the antibiotic sensitivity so we can all make more informed decisions on antibiotic usage. If for instance you have lost some calves to pneumonia, ..continued on page 17

HERD HEALTH, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 talk to your herd veterinarian about doing both a culture when he/she does a postmortem, plus a sensitivity test to predict which antibiotic will work the best. This again will help monitor what resistant organisms are out there plus success at treatment will be optimized. Keep in mind

virtually all antibiotics will need a vet script and involvement from your veterinarian going forward. We need to all be better spokespeople for our industry and yet push back with strong evidence on topics like the hormones in beef, antibiotic free beef, etc. We are a Charolais Banner • May 2021

very sustainable industry but need to support the processes we do that make beef more economical to raise. If even one or two ideas have resonated with you, this article has been worth it. I hope your breeding season is going well.

Their three flagship product lines are Vermeer hay and forage equipment, Supreme International feed mixers and Arrow cattle handling equipment, as well as a wide range of other ranching-related products. Lee’s wife, Chelsea, does all the marketing, from doing all the advertising, to managing the website and a full complement of social media profiles. It’s really “a full time job that is completely different from what it was even ten years ago”. Their success online has helped their business expand far beyond what a local dealership would normally expect, with clients as far afield as Illinois and Indiana. “We’ll ship anywhere it’s logistically feasible, the internet has made everything global now.” Not forgetting the local market that includes their friends and neighbours, Norheim Ranching has Lee at an indoor trade show

exhibited their product lines at many a trade show, believing that “many ranchers are as hands-on as me. If we can get the best products in front of them, have them see them, use them, touch them, push all the buttons, we have confidence in our products’ abilities to speak for themselves.” Having feet on the ground and lots of online content seems to have paid off. At times, Norheim Ranching has even been the number one dealer of Supreme and Arrow products in the world. “We’ve aligned ourselves with really good quality companies that build excellent products and give us excellent support on the back end. Because we’ve done well on the product lines, we continually have reps from other companies trying to get us to carry their products. We are very choosy about this and say no to most. We only want to represent the best.” Lee demonstrating equipment at a summer trade show

All this despite having only ten full time employees, and they always seem to be hiring. “Our issue is that qualified, excellent people don’t grow on trees. Our people really need to understand the cattle business – if we can understand and solve our customers’ problems, we can make sales.” Apart from an understanding of the cattle business itself, Norheim Ranching is looking for candidates possessing the soft skills “that nobody apart from 4-H and CCYA are teaching. The public speaking, salesmanship and marketing skills that are so important in the professional world just make these programs that much more important for kids to get involved in. And that’s why people that have ten years of 4-H and CCYA

Anyone tech savvy who knows agriculture can get a job in it. It’s important to learn to handle yourself as a professional, even seemingly simple things add up to quite a list: checking into a hotel, getting to the show or the wash rack on time, managing your own time, working with other people. CCYA does this far better than school. If you don’t want someone to tell you what to do all the

time, you have to figure out how to do things on your own. As a Senior at CCYA especially, no one is telling you where to be when, you just do it.” More than just talking about the importance of youth shows, Lee has judged lots of youth competitions in judging, public speaking and marketing. Including at the Weyburn CCYA conference in 2007, where he was impressed because of how many took it seriously and put the effort in, and “we maybe don’t get enough people taking things quite seriously enough these days. It was nice to see these Charolais kids doing it.” Since their children Cody and Luke are 5 and 3, they aren’t quite ready for youth shows, nor are they doing enough farm work yet, but if their interest in animals keeps up, they are assured to be doing both soon enough. As if their plate was not full enough, the Norheims continue what for Lee is a lifetime in the cattle business, in this case keeping about 250 bred cows, including 70 purebred Charolais.

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

Congratulations on another year of successful bull sales as we look forward to getting the crop in and cattle out on green pastures. This past year has tested all of us in ways we never thought possible in our modern world. Agriculture, food production and distribution, which had been taken for granted for decades, has been thrust into the spotlight. This 48

will have long term impacts on our industry, and we need to be prepared and adapt to evolving market conditions. Business continuity for beef producers has been a priority for CBBC and other industry groups during the pandemic. A key step was ensuring agriculture was deemed an essential service early in the pandemic. This has provided certain exemptions to restrictions faced by other industries. At the same time, it is important that we take precautions Charolais Banner • May 2021

works for your operation. There is no indication of when border crossing restrictions will be lifted. However, agriculture is exempt from some restrictions in order for food to remain available for Canadians through the pandemic. Live breeding cattle, semen and embryos are able to cross the border into the United States or Canada. Live cattle can be transported by either a commercial carrier or on your own truck/trailer. You are able to cross into the U.S. to pick up purchased animals, as well as deliver animals you have sold. As a cattle producer, you may qualify to travel under the essential service worker designation

and are able to cross into the U.S. for business purposes even if you are not transporting cattle, but additional documentation will be required. This may include attending agricultural events such as auction sales, or to view or purchase cattle. American cattle producers are also able to attend similar events in Canada. There are additional documentation and testing requirements which are subject to the discretion of the border agent at the port of entry. These requirements change on a regular basis and also depend on which province you are departing or returning to, or if a person is crossing via land or at an airport. At the time of writing, if

you are traveling under the essential service worker designation you will still be required to provide a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of departure/crossing, but may be able to avoid quarantine requirements. These exemptions are at the discretion of the border agent and subject to change without notice. Plan for the unexpected. For more information on travelling into the USA or inviting American cattle producers to Canada, contact the CBBC office at info@beefbreeds. ca or call 403-730-0350. There is additional COVID related information available on the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association website at www.cattle.ca.

OBITUARY

Les Row 1930 – 2021

Charles Leslie (Les) Row, of Charrow Charolais Ranch, Marshall, Saskatchewan, passed away on Monday, March 8, 2021, at the age of 91 years. Les was born in Lloydminster and the first four years of his life was spent living at the Southminster elevator his father managed. In the spring of 1934, they moved back to the family farm that had been settled in 1905 southwest of Marshall. Les’s love of all animals began at the early age of five with his first horse, a Shetland pony named “Darkie.” Many miles were covered, and no path was left untravelled by these two. Formal education for Les began at age seven when his parents deemed him mature enough to ride his horse into town. He made the four-mile trip to Marshall School everyday, carrying with him his homework and lunch pail consisting of an old syrup can. At age sixteen, Les felt he had received an adequate education and was ready to pursue his true passion of working and caring for the land. This year also marked an important milestone in any young man’s life – obtaining a driver’s license. At this time, all that was needed was the word of two individuals attesting to one’s driving skill. With his license came the purchase of his first vehicle,

68

a 1927 General Motors one ton. Les drove this and many other vehicles over the next seventy-five years, accident and incident free. Les was always mechanically inclined, and at age 19, enrolled in an automotive course covering both gas and diesel engines. He was continuously interested in furthering his skillsets, and, to that end, also became proficient in carpentry and welding. This acquired knowledge served him well with the unexpected passing of his father two years later. Assuming the responsibility of running the family farm was the task he now faced, and one that he proved himself to be more than capable of. Les’ interests were not solely tied to the farm, as after a three-year courtship, he wed Ellen Gessner, of Battleford, in July of 1960. Second only to his family was the passion he had for his livestock and land. With the purchase of his first Charolais bull in 1965, Les began his lifelong involvement in the purebred cattle industry. Many successes have since followed, ranging from acknowledgments of superior genetic performance to being honoured as a Foundation Family by the Saskatchewan Charolais Association. He was especially proud to be presented with the Century Family Farm award in 2005, a legacy that will continue for generations to come. Awards and recognitions aside, Les’s greatest joys were found in quiet times spent with family, friends, and neighbours. The simple pleasures of

Charolais Banner • May 2021

being outdoors, whether horseback riding, quadding, ski-dooing, fishing, gopher hunting, berry picking, or just taking a walk, were all his personal riches. In ranching, as in life, there are always strife, challenges, and events beyond one’s control. How one deals with these defines an individual’s character. If any one event, could capture the essence that is Les Row, it would be a story told by Dr. Glenn Weir, founder of Weir Veterinary Service, Lloydminster: One afternoon, Glenn posed a question to his staff who had all been on a break while he was dealing with a client. He told them that he had just informed a customer that their recently purchased, purebred animal, one which was meant to be a foundation member of the herd, was terminally ill and the best that could be hoped for was to have it turned into hamburger. In response to this devastating news, the owner’s reply was neither blasphemous nor anger-filled, but merely, “Well isn’t that a son-of-a-gun.” The question to his staff was whether anyone could guess the identity of this client. And as the story goes, one answer rang out from the unified voices of all present, “Les Row!” Two words that will forever embody the heart of an eternal optimist and the spirit of a true cowboy. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by; his children, Helen Row Toews (Tom Toews) and Bill (Linda) Row; six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Charolais Banner • May 2021


2021 Spring Bull Sale Summary According to statistics, the 2021 Spring Bull Sales were record breaking! In the 40 years the Charolais Banner has been compiling bull sale results, the 2021 spring bull saw the most bulls sold, with the highest overall total gross dollars, the highest number of sales reporting and highest overall average. There were 103 sales reporting in 2021, 4 more than 2020. The overall numbers were up 241 2/3, and gross dollars were up $4,436,850, with the overall average up by $760. A quick overview shows that of

the 91 sales reporting in both 2020 and 2021, 80% of those sales had an increase in overall average. There were 47 sales grossing more than $200,000 and one sale grossing over $1,000,000. There were 24 sales selling more than 50 lots. Mature bulls were down $1485 in average with 8 more bulls selling in 2021, compared to 2020. There were 138 5/12 more two-year old bull lots selling in 2021 with the average up $747. 82% of the sales with two-year olds selling had a two-year old average

above $5000. There were 95 1/4 more yearling lots selling in 2021 with the average up $773. 76% of all sales with yearlings selling had a yearling average above $5000. Bull Sale Chart Notes: • Statistics are from fall 2020 sales with more than 5 bulls and spring 2021 bull sales. • No U.S. bull sales are included in the chart. • The sales with fall long-yearlings were treated as two-year old bulls.

It is the breeders’ responsibility to submit a sale summary to the Charolais Banner office (by fax, e-mail or phone) to ensure that their sale is included in the chart and further statistics. Unless the Charolais Banner office receives a report, no information will be shown for that sale.
