Wow, what a spring for bull sales. In many cases, crowds were back to pre-covid size and the enthusiasm in the cattle business was at an all time high. Most sale averages were up and some substantially, with the demand for Charolais bulls strong across the country. The fear that many cows went out of the system again last fall had breeders nervous that there would be less demand, but that didn’t come true for Charolais. Picking up market share and factoring in that many mature bulls went to town last fall because of feed costs, and this spring because of higher prices kept the demand and prices high. The fact that the calf market looks like it will be as good as it has ever been this fall also helped create enthusiasm and excitement in the cattle industry.

Near the back of this issue, you will find the bull sale trends for the past 43 years and it shows how strong the Charolais breed is today. Record number of bull sales, record averages and record gross. There were 70 bulls that brought $20,000 or more. We have also seen some prominent purebred breeders from other breeds adding a Charolais component to

their operation the last couple of years knowing that the breed is on the move.

This summer there are a lot of events for Charolais enthusiasts. The Friends of the Canadian Charolais Foundation is organizing a Breeder’s School in conjunction with the Canadian Charolais Association Annual General Meeting and Saskatchewan Charolais Association AGM & Sask Royal sale in early June at Moose Jaw, SK. This will be a great couple of days networking and learning that you won’t want to miss and will also include the third Foundation sale. The Friends of the Canadian Charolais Foundation are working on supporting many projects including a mentorship program, scholarships for both academic and applied programs and more. It is a great program to support as the committee works to fund programs that will benefit everyone in the Charolais business.

The World is coming to Canada the last week of June and first week of July. Delegates from 12 countries have registered with over 100 out of country breeders taking part as we travel across the country. Starting with three days in Ontario and then three days in both Manitoba

and Saskatchewan and five days in Alberta. Everyone is welcome to attend any of the cattle events, just let us know in advance you plan to attend so we can make sure we give the caterers exact numbers.

Another annual event at the end of July is the Canadian Charolais Youth Association Conference and Show being held in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. If you don’t think that this program is beneficial to all youth, make sure you read the article in this issue written by CCYA Alumni Natalie Oram.

I hope seeding goes well for everyone and there are good moisture conditions for grass and hay everywhere this summer. Robbie Chomik and I will be touring the country in the next few months and now is a great time to get the herd sires pictured on grass and get some females pictured for websites or bull sale catalogues next spring. Give us a call early so we can plan our schedules and get into as many yards as possible. The next issue is the 58th Annual Herdsire edition which is a great place to showcase your program. Be a part of it.

Until next time,

Helge

Wow, quel printemps pour les ventes de taureaux. Dans de nombreux cas, les foules étaient revenues à leur taille pré-Covid et l’enthousiasme pour le commerce du boeuf était à son plus haut niveau. La plupart des moyennes de ventes ont augmenté, voire substantiellement, avec une forte demande de taureaux Charolais dans tout le pays. La crainte que de nombreuses vaches soient à nouveau sorties du système l’automne dernier a rendu les éleveurs inquiets à l’idée d’une baisse de la demande, mais cela ne s’est pas concrétisé pour la race charolaise. En gagnant des parts de marché et en tenant compte du fait que de nombreux taureaux matures sont partis à l’encan l'automne dernier en raison des coûts d'alimentation, et ce printemps, en raison de la hausse des prix, la demande et les prix ont été maintenus à un niveau élevé. Le fait que le marché du veau semble être aussi bon qu'il ne l'a jamais été cet automne a également contribué à susciter l'enthousiasme et l'enthousiasme dans l'industrie bovine.

À la fin de ce numéro, vous trouverez les tendances des ventes de taureaux au cours des 43 dernières années qui témoignent de la force de la race charolaise aujourd'hui. Nombre record de ventes de taureaux, moyennes record et brut record. Il y avait 70 taureaux

OBITUARY

Calvin James Hutchinson, of Priceville, Ontario, passed away with his loving family by his side at London Health Sciences Centre – University Hospital on Friday, March 15th, 2024, in his 65th year. Loving husband for 44 years and best friend of Denise (nee Hopkins).

qui ont rapporté 20 000 $ ou plus. Nous avons également vu certains éleveurs de race pure d'autres races ajouter une composante charolaise à leur exploitation ces dernières années, une preuve que la race est en mouvement. Cet été, de nombreuses animations sont proposées aux passionnés du Charolais. Les Amis de la Fondation Charolais Canadienne organisent une école d'élevage en conjonction avec l'assemblée générale annuelle de l'association Charolais canadienne et l’assemblée générale annuelle (AGA) et la vente Royale de l’association Charolais de la Saskatchewan au début de juin à Moose Jaw. Ce seront quelques jours formidables de réseautage et d’apprentissage que vous ne voudrez pas manquer et qui comprendront également la troisième vente de la fondation. Les Amis de la Fondation Charolais Canadienne travaillent à soutenir de nombreux projets, notamment un programme de mentorat, des bourses pour les programmes académiques et appliqués et plus encore. C’est un excellent programme à soutenir alors que le comité travaille à financer des programmes qui bénéficieront à tous les acteurs du secteur charolais.

Le monde arrive au Canada la dernière semaine de juin et la première semaine de juillet. Des délégués de 12 pays se sont inscrits et plus de 100 éleveurs étrangers participent à nos voyages à travers le pays. À commencer par trois jours en Ontario, puis trois

Sur le Terrain

jours au Manitoba et en Saskatchewan et cinq jours en Alberta. Tout le monde est invité à assister à l'un des événements liés à l’élevage bovin, il suffit de nous informer à l'avance de votre intention d'y assister afin que nous puissions nous assurer de donner les chiffres exacts aux traiteurs.

Un autre événement annuel à la fin du mois de juillet est la conférence et l’exposition de l'association canadienne de la jeunesse charolaise qui se tient à Swift Current, en Saskatchewan. Si vous ne pensez pas que ce programme profite à tous les jeunes, assurez-vous de lire l’article de ce numéro rédigé par Natalie Oram, ancienne participante du CCYA. J'espère que les semences se dérouleront bien pour tous le monde et que les conditions d'humidité seront bonnes pour les champs et le foin partout cet été. Robbie Chomik et moi allons visiter le pays dans les prochains mois et c'est le moment idéal pour photographier les taureaux de troupeau sur l'herbe et faire photographier quelques 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 et accéder au plus grand nombre d’éleveurs possible. Le prochain numéro est la 58e édition annuelle de Herdsire, qui est un endroit idéal pour présenter votre programme. Faites-en partie.

À la prochaine fois, Helge

Supportive and loving father of Justin Hutchinson and his wife Michelle, Courtney and her husband Adam Hale, Brittany and her husband Troy Bonterre, Curtis Hutchinson and his wife Katlin, and Emily and her husband Braden McGregor. Proud grandpa of 20 grandchildren.

Jim was an Eastgen technician and Charolais breeder. He was experimenting with heritage Charolais semen and mostly

switching to Full French in recent years. His friend and Charolais breeder Kent Charlton said “There are breeders who are good salesmen but sometimes lack good character, and others who are quiet individuals of great integrity and stock, Jim was certainly the latter.

A funeral service celebrating Jim’s life was held at the Durham Community Centre, Durham, on Thursday, March 21st.

Bull sales are a wrap for another year, and what a great spring it was. Commercial producers are being rewarded with the Charolais advantage which is driving the increase in market share. I have had many conversations with seed stock producers from other breeds and the common topic is that the Charolais breed is here for the long haul and will see success for the foreseeable future.

Now that sales are complete, please submit your transfers in a timely manner, we do get calls in the office from a large number of commercial producers wanting their papers, so please send them in or do the online transfer, we can’t transfer them if we haven’t received them.

We are preparing for a busy spring and summer, with many Charolais events. It all gets started on June 6th, with the SCA hosting their AGM as well as the Sask Royal sale. The CCA AGM will be held in conjunction on June 7th. The Friends of Canadian

Charolais Foundation will be hosting the second annual Breeders’ School and Foundation fund raising auction on June 7th as well. The world is coming to Canada from June 21 to July 5th, as we will be hosting the 2024 World Charolais Congress.

At the CCA as expenses go up, we are constantly looking for ways to save money, one of the ways is to cut the cost of mailing and printing. When you are registering your bull calves there is a hold for transfer option, please check that out. For most of the bulls sold, we are printing their certificates twice in one year. If you do not need a physical copy of your female certificates, you have this option as well.

J’ai eu de nombreuses conversations avec des éleveurs de race pure d’autres races et le sujet commun est que la race Charolais est là pour demeurer à long terme et qu'elle continuera de connaître du succès à l’avenir. Maintenant que les ventes sont terminées, veuillez soumettre promptement vos demandes de transferts. Nous recevons des appels au bureau d’un grand nombre de producteurs commerciaux qui veulent obtenir leurs certificats d'enregistrement. Veuillez donc les envoyer ou faire le transfert en ligne, nous ne pouvons pas les transférer si nous ne les avons pas reçus.

Nous nous préparons pour un printemps et un été occupés, avec de nombreux événements Charolais. Tout commence le 6 juin, alors que l’Association Charolais de la Saskatchewan organise son assemblée générale annuelle et la Vente Royale Saskatchewan. L’assemblée générale annuelle de l’Association Charolais du Canada aura lieu en même temps

“United we stand, divided we fall” is a phrase that is often used to inspire collaborative efforts and one that is an important reminder for Canadian beef producers. With ever tightening budgets and limited resources, organizations look to every way possible to eliminate costs and as a result investment in collaborative and innovative projects are often hard to maintain. Is there really value in working together? Do we really need a unified organization to represent the seedstock sector? As we all look to advance the value of genetic data in the ongoing effort to produce sustainable and profitable beef, now more than ever the investment in membership in unified representation to advance beef cattle genetics is critical.

At CBBC, we believe our diversity is our biggest advantage in the beef

Driving Change in an Industry Founded on Tradition

cattle industry but it is also our biggest challenge. If we lose our diversity, we lose our advantage. Within our member organizations there are many similarities and many differences. The key to maintaining strong members and driving value is to find efficiencies in managing those things that are similar amongst us all so that we can continue to thrive in our uniqueness. Operating in isolation and trying to independently manage our challenges will only result in fewer and fewer successful organizations within the sector.

The Canadian Beef Breeds Council’s (CBBC) mandate continues to be to:

• support the Canadian seedstock sector by developing partnerships that advance genetic improvement, research extension services, information dissemination and our role in Canada’s National Beef Strategy;

• promote Canadian beef cattle genetics both domestically and internationally by identifying market opportunities and facilitating market development; and

• advocate on behalf of the Canadian seedstock sector for effective policy, meaningful market access and enhanced competitiveness.

All of which are critically important for all our members, regardless of size and all of which require time and money to advance. When working collaboratively our efforts and resources go much further and all voices at the table are represented.

CBBC held another extremely successful Annual General Meeting in Regina, Saskatchewan during Canadian Western Agribition with over fifty members and industry stakeholders in attendance. During the meeting the CBBC membership elected new Directors Eddie

The awareness of the role that beef cattle genetics and CBBC’s members play in sustainable beef production has increased substantially in recent years. Throughout 2023 CBBC continued to focus on building collaborative partnerships both within the seedstock sector and across the entire beef production chain to advance our vision of being a world leader in developing profitable and sustainable beef cattle genetics. Driving these advancements is not an easy feat and has been met with

organization clearly saw value in a collective voice representing the seedstock sector. The leadership today believes more than ever that unified representation of the seedstock sector is critical for not only the sector to thrive but the entire beef industry in Canada to thrive. As we enter our 30th year of operations we will not only be celebrating our past achievements but working with our members and partners to leverage collaborative resources to capture the substantial opportunities that we believe the future holds for Canadian beef cattle genetics both domestically and internationally. More than ever CBBC is looked to as a leader in the Canadian beef industry and we will continue to work to represent our members and partners as effectively and efficiently as possible to assist in securing a sustainable future for Canadian beef cattle breeders and producers. 3

challenges as we push to move the needle on collaboration and increasing the value of genetic data within the beef production system. Change is hard within any industry and especially so in a traditionally independent industry such as beef cattle production. The disruption that the leadership and partners of CBBC have created has not always been met with a warm reception but that has not deterred the leadership from continuing to work to achieve tangible outcomes for Canadian beef cattle breeders and producers. CBBC membership and collaborative partnerships continue to increase and we will remain focused on working with those who believe in the importance of collaboration and the value of data-driven genetic advancements in beef production to capture increased value.

reduce the administrative burden for producers. We have farms and ranches to tend to and the less paperwork, the better. Without this push, the amount would have reverted back to $100,000.

We will keep pursuing multi-year interest-free commitments moving forward rather than year to year changes.

We are also cautiously optimistic that the Government recognized the Livestock Tax Deferral’s effectiveness

in providing relief for producers in the Budget and recognized it as a crucial tool for producers in times of natural disasters such as drought or floods. The CCA has also requested a change to the Income Tax Act to include all classes of cattle and to allow producers to self-elect when they need to use the deferral.

After years of advocacy, we are cautiously optimistic that the Government will work quickly in

CANADIAN CATTLE ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT’S REPORT, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 42

partnership with the beef sector to design a framework that addresses the weather-related challenges beef producers are facing. This can’t happen quickly enough.

Changes to capital gains in the Budget have the potential to be negative for producers and time will tell how exactly the proposed changes will impact us. The fuel tax credit proposed for 2019 to 2024 also could be promising for ranchers and farmers, but the amount of red tape required to qualify has not yet been laid out. Our staff team will

be further assessing these potential opportunities and will continue to advocate for relief and positive supports as they are brought forward for official Government approval.

More positive news is the Government’s supporting efforts to amend the Copyright Act to help achieve interoperability between devices and equipment. We look forward to taking part in consultations in June and to seeing more details announced shortly.

South of the border, we’re keeping the communication lines wide open

with our US counterparts on all fronts including anything that is affecting beef herds down south. The Voluntary Product of USA labelling announcement happened in April but doesn’t go into effect until 2026 so we won’t be able to assess any effects it may have on Canadian beef until at least some time after that. We are also working with CFIA and keeping a very close eye on what’s happening in the dairy industry with the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) virus. It hasn’t been reported in any cattle (dairy or beef) in Canada but

CANADIAN CATTLE ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT’S REPORT, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 44

rest assured that our CCA team is on top of the latest scientific developments on this issue.

In April, we travel to South Korea and in May we’ll spend some time in the Indo Pacific to cultivate trade relationships and pave the way for increased trade opportunities.

It’s shaping up to be a better spring than last year and strong market signals indicate growth potential for producers.

We hope you’ve had a successful calving season and encourage herd growth so we can try to keep up with demand for our quality Canadian beef at home and abroad. We’ll pave the way for more markets, and we hope conditions are supportive for increased production to meet these

opportunities.

Lastly, on behalf of the entire CCA Board, I would like to thank our outgoing representatives and welcome our new Board representatives for 2024-25. Your contributions are valued and appreciated, and we are thankful for your time served.

The CCYA Influence

When I think back to growing up on the farm – Valley’s End Ranch, near Central Butte, Saskatchewan – summers were filled with good things: crops in the field, cattle out to pastures, and 4-H, but none compared to attending CCYA. The week in the summer that brought together young people from around the country, creating a vibrant community that I looked forward to every year. Before I attended, I knew of CCYA from my cousins (perhaps also the epic party that Ryan mentioned in his article last year) and had high expectations of my first CCYA in Dauphin, Manitoba. It did not disappoint – I met a great group of people, learned a lot of skills that I would continue to build in subsequent CCYA conferences, and most importantly – it was just a lot of fun. I was hooked, and CCYA became a highlight that I looked forward to every summer.

Looking back, it strikes me that CCYA is unique: an event organized for youth by youth. While similar in some respects to 4-H, rather than focusing on a specific project, the emphasis of CCYA on teamwork with a group of youth from all over the country sets it apart. CCYA was a chance to learn from and mentor other young people, giving us the chance to become both students and teachers.

As a young person, most of the things I was learning were being taught by adults: in school, on the farm, in extra-curriculars. The youth-centred philosophy at CCYA was a refreshing take on education: we all brought our strengths and experiences to the table and learned from

each other. Everyone had something to learn, and everyone had something to teach, and with this philosophy we could accomplish the task at hand. Parents were on the sidelines, which I think they also found very enjoyable – as much as we were having fun with our friends, I think they were enjoying time with theirs.

The skills that I gained at CCYA have shaped my career journey, and I still carry with me. Most importantly is teamwork, which is a big part of CCYA. No matter where we end up, being an effective and supportive team player is the basis of success in any career choice – whether it be in the cattle industry or outside of it.

Field work with colleagues from the University of Innsbruck in the Stubai Alps in Austria to test the effects of drought (summer), and snow depth (winter) on mountain grasslands. We can’t complain about the lunch-break views!
Charolais Banner • May 2024
One of the great things about my job is talking to farmers who love grasslands. This is from a (chilly) field day event at Teagasc, Johnstown castle called Farming for Soil Health. My colleague, Dr. Kerry Ryan and I presented our research about how drought affects grassland plants and microbes (photo credit Mary Browne).

Team marketing calls on you to get creative, think of what your audience needs and how they will receive the message. What’s the best way to get an idea across?

Team judging gives us the chance to hone our observation, critical thinking, and reasoning skills, learning how to critically evaluate and formulate opinions and give constructive feedback – what are we looking for and how can we back up the decisions we make? CCYA gave me the chance to develop these skills in a youthcentred and fun environment.

While my career path diverged from livestock and the Charolais industry, I use the skills I gained in CCYA all the time in my work. I left home with aspirations to become a large-animal vet. However, after being introduced to soil science (and perhaps because of a bit too much fun in my first year…) my career plans changed. I was hooked on the wild and diverse world belowground. Soil biota – the microbes and tiny animals that live in the soil –

Appreciating beautiful mountain grasslands (with orchids!) in the Aosta region, Italy A nice view at the end of a long hiking day Perhaps the coolest part of my job is learning about the relationships between plants and microbes. One way to do this is to ‘trace’ the carbon that plants photosynthesize into soil microbes, using a stable but less common carbon isotope (13 C). I work with a great group of people to find out how drought affects this relationship in different grasslands.

are so important to our lives. They drive nutrient and carbon cycling, breaking down organic compounds and liberating nutrients which can then be taken up by plants. Soil microbes are constantly interacting with plants via their roots, indirectly and directly affecting nutrient and water uptake, and playing a key role in plant health and stress tolerance. Almost everything we eat begins with the interactions between plants and microbes. It’s thanks to soil biota that plants can take up nutrients and grow, that animals can eat the plants, and we can eat both. This fascination with plant-soil interactions led me to pursue a career in research. I finished my BSc. in Agriculture Science at the University of Guelph, and then decided to go abroad for a MSc. in Agroecology at Wageningen University, in the Netherlands, which led to a PhD in Ecology at the same university.

Throughout my education, another skill honed at CCYA helped: to go with the flow and when problems pop up,

know that with a supportive group of people around, they are all solvable.

My education cemented my love for ecology (the study of the interactions between living things, and how they respond to their environment). I continued to build my research line in my postdoctoral research, studying how grassland plants and soil microbes respond to extreme weather (floods and droughts) and what characteristics are responsible for improving their ability to tolerate stress. Essentially asking, how can we make grasslands more resilient?

I’ve been fortunate to be able to work at some great places with wonderful groups of people: at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, Teagasc (the Agriculture and Land Development Authority) in Ireland, and the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands (where I currently work).

Throughout this journey, the skills I learned at CCYA have played a big part developing my career path. While

the stereotype is that scientists are solitary people in white coats going about their business in laboratories, the reality is that research is built on teamwork. The most successful research projects are when groups of people with different backgrounds come together with a common goal, bringing their different strengths and experiences to the table. In research, beyond being a strong and supportive team player, you need to be able to sell an idea – sound familiar? This is what we did in team marketing. Why should a funding organization support this specific project?

Creativity, understanding what is important to the audience (be it a funding organization or a potential customer), and expressing that idea in a clear and attractive manner are key to success.

Team judging gives another set of important skills. In my job, one of the big decisions is what research questions we should address – what is most important and meaningful research to focus on in the long run? The same is true for selecting cattle – which characteristics do we want to have in our herds, and what will make our herd resilient and successful in the long run? Being able to think critically about our selections and clearly expressing these ideas is important in both.

Finally, one of the great things about CCYA is travelling to new places and meeting new people. This instilled in me the knowledge that although leaving your comfort zone may be scary, what you will gain by doing so is completely worth it. Going abroad for my education was scary – to a new country where I knew no one, but it has been an incredible experience. Tied into this is the knowledge that everyone has something to teach. We all come from different backgrounds and by being open to each other’s experiences, we have so much to learn – whether it be

grooming and clipping tricks or new perspectives on a research question.

Becoming part of the CCYA community was a highlight of my youth. Every summer it was an anticipated reunion, a chance to re-connect with old friends and to meet new people. I think it is a unique experience, and I’d highly recommend it. You never know where life will take you, but do know that wherever you go, you’ll draw on the skills you develop at CCYA. So, go to Swift Current, SK, this summer to make friends, develop skills, and (as my granny always said) have a ball.

Purebred Breeders’ Health Management Practices in Canada

With the World Charolais Congress being held in Canada this year, most of the delegates will have direct access to this copy of the Charolais Banner. I thought as a review for the western breeders I would outline common management health practices we do in the west. Most things are pretty similar in eastern Canada but many things may be quite different in other countries and could create discussion. All these vaccinations, treatments, or other management procedures have evolved over time depending on what cattle may become afflicted with and also what is currently licensed to use in the country. Animal welfare is always a top concern and Canada has the “Beef Code of Practice” that we follow. If some of the terminology or products seem foreign to you, ask any Canadian breeders that are your hosts. I know Craig Scott (Canadian Charolais General Manager) and Candace and Helge By have attended other World Congresses and would be great reference sources if you have any questions about any of this. First off, vaccination is the key contributor to biosecurity by vaccinating your cattle for what they could potentially become exposed to. All this is done in Canada in co-operation with your herd veterinarian and vaccine protocols are sometimes very specific to a farm or ranch. Vaccinations for the many clostridial diseases, such as blackleg or malignant edema, the respiratory viruses IBR, PI3, BRSV, BVD types 1 & 2 are given as well as the bacterial causes of pneumonia. Histophilus, Mannheimia and sometimes pasteurella is included in the mix. The cows get all of the above vaccines with the exception of the bacterial

causes of pneumonia and the calves get the bacterial causes added in. This can generally fit with two shots in calves and often cows get the abortion causing viruses IBR and BVD either before breeding or veterinarians may recommend killed products during gestation.

There are four main pharmaceutical companies that supply vaccines in Canada. There has also been a big uptake on intranasal vaccines in very young calves for the respiratory pathogens and these avoid maternal antibody interference so young calves get protection. This is really an addon vaccination.

I would say most herds, especially purebreds, get scour vaccines before calving. For commercial herds, especially ones over 100 head, scour vaccination is very common. There are three good scours vaccines in Canada and often one looks at timing of the vaccine before calving to determine which one to use. I’ll mention the three so anyone can look them up: Guardian, Scour Bos, and Scour Guard in no particular order. These are all good vaccines and usage is more based on timing of vaccination as anything. Compliance to most herds to vaccination for all the core vaccines is about 80%. Producers watch and keep biosecurity high, have creep areas for calves and make sure colostrum management is high. We are fortunate in Western Canada that SCCL (Saskatoon Colostrum Company) makes some of the best air dried quality colostrum in the world using first milking colostrum from dairies in Western Canada. The product is headstart. Many producers now have a decent supply of headstart around so any calf where there is any doubt about adequate colostrum they either have them suck or are tube fed with headstart in 1.5-2 liters of water. Many producers

disinfect tube feeders very well and often have one for sick calves and another is marked for newborns to minimize spread of anything. Check out the SCCL website for colostrum feeding strategies.

Regarding flies and parasites internal or external, we have in Canada the beauty of winter where everything is frozen and in suspended animation. This stops flies, freezes worm eggs and reduces the spread of everything from coccidia, cryptosporiosis, clostridial or anthrax spores are frozen in the ground. Winters in the west will kill about 95% of the parasitic larvae thus slowing down the spread. Summer for fly control, internal worms picked up on grass and fall for lice is what producers focus on.

Lice are an issue in Canada in the late fall and over the winter and are treated with things like either the macrocyclic lactones (ivermectin) or the pymethrin related group 3 insecticides with names like Ctlence Saber Boss or Clean Up II. We have seen reduced availability of some insecticides in Canada so flies are treated for midsummer with some products that are left in either the pour on form or in ear tags or cattle oilers. The most recent recommendation is to pulse treat only when you have 200 flies and over per animal evident. This cuts down usage and prevents resistance from developing.

Most non-breeding calves will be implanted with a few different implants and again three companies supply growth implants in Canada. They are extremely safe and there are specific uses for each. This would only be done once bull calves are castrated or the heifer replacements have been removed. It takes some practice to implant properly so ..continued on page 64

Reduce, Reuse, Ruminate screenings bring together beef sector, media and content creators to share food loss and waste solutions

The short documentary ‘Reduce, Reuse, Ruminate’ will publicly premiere on YouTube on April 24th, 2024, also known as “Stop Food Waste Day.” This film is the third in a series of short documentaries that showcase the environmental benefits of raising beef cattle on the Canadian landscape, following ‘Guardians of the Grasslands’ and ‘Too Close to Home’. Pre-screening events of Reduce, Reuse, Ruminate were held in major urban centres and at universities across Canada in advance of the public launch of the film with media, content creators and producers in attendance.

Combined, the events drew nearly 250 people(??) who watched the film, enjoyed dishes featuring beef, potatoes and beer and listened to an expert panel. Panelists at each event included a feedlot operator, an expert in circular food systems, and a sustainability lead from the potato company Cavendish Farms, which partnered with Public and Stakeholder Engagement (PSE) on this project.

The film Reduce, Reuse, Ruminate highlights the amazing upcycling ability of cattle and their important role in diverting food loss and waste from landfills. Transforming beer byproducts and French fries into beef are two are of the incredible sustainability stories featured in the short documentary, so beef, potatoes and beer were a natural fit for the menu at each event!

Events were held in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. Eastbound Brewing Company in Toronto was the location of the successful Toronto event, which took place the

same week as the Beef Farmers of Ontario annual general meeting. Panelists here included seventh generation producer Allison de Vos from Brown Farms in Kawartha Lakes, John MacQuarrie, Director of Sustainability with Cavendish Farms and Tara Lee, Head Chef and owner of Eastbound Brewing Company. The panel was moderated by Perth County producer and Director of Communications for the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks.

The second event was held at Howe Sound Brewing in East Vancouver. Here, Ryan Scorgie moderated a panel that included feedlot owner Andrea van Iterson, Jamie White from Loop Resources, which sources and diverts food from grocery stores to local farms, and again, John McQuarrie

from Cavendish. One of the content creators in attendance, Tyler Heppell, showcases potato production on his British Columbia farm across his social channels. You can watch his Instagram Reel from the event by visiting @potatoty and TikTok by visiting @heppellspotato.

Calgary was the final leg of the tour of urban centres. The event was held at Last Best Brewing & Distilling, which diverts their spent grains to cattle. Here, the panel was moderated by producer Melissa Downing of Alberta Cattle Feeders Association. In addition to the representative from Cavendish, panelists were Ryan Kasko of Kasko Cattle Co. who is featured in the short documentary, as well as Victoria Ross of aGRO Systems, a waste upcycling and ..continued on page 64

be patient if learning. Implants, depending on the type and length of activity, will add from twenty-three pounds up above 60 lb to live weight. They are a huge return in the cattle industry and add to its efficiency adding more pounds with less water, feed and time. You will find 98 percent of cattle in Canadian and American feedlots are implanted.

Respiratory disease and lameness are our two most economical conditions. We use more and more NSAID’s (Non-Steroidal AntiInflammatory Drugs) for certain conditions to minimize antibiotic usage, make recovery quicker and address in many cases the animal welfare (pain) in the case. There are multiple NSAIDs on the market in Canada as prescription products and they come in injectable, oral and pour on forms. Speaking of oral forms, there are now mineral/vitamin supplements such as Selenium and Vit A, D and E we once injected to newborn calves which we can now give orally. There has generally been an increase in oral or pour-on medications over injectable which increases convenience minimizing needles injections.

At birth, most calves also get a CCIA tag which is our national identification system. Some purebred breeds have gone with a different coloured backing but the Canadian Charolais Association stayed with the traditional yellow as one can always tell a Charolais or Charolais cross by

the colour. They don’t need a tag to differentiate.

With reproduction being such an important part to profitability genetic progress, virtually all purebred bulls sold by breeders are semen tested if over a year of age. This eliminates any infertile or subfertile bulls.

Commercial producers, especially the larger ones, generally test every bull every year. The veterinarians do a combination of scrotal circumference, semen motility, semen morphology as well as examine for the ability to breed, such as structure abnormalities to the penis and other reproductive organs. It is comprehensive and I would say very well accepted across the industry. Heifers in some cases are palpated for reproductive soundness ahead of breeding or it is incorporated when they are pregnancy checked. Virtually all cattle are pregnancy checked yearly either by manual palpation or with the use of an ultrasound.

As far as breeding goes, all aspects are employed to varying degrees in Canada - natural breeding, to artifical insemination, to synchronized breeding using AI. One has to watch these days in the cattle industry A.I. or artifical insemination to be differentiated to the A.I. or artificial intelligence that is out in the rest of the world. They kind of stole our acronym!

I wanted to end by saying in Canada, which is the country I know best, there are very good information

Campus screenings were held at University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba and Dalhousie, broadening the reach and excitement surrounding the short documentary. Representatives from DINE magazine were in attendance at

the event in Toronto and covered the story online and in their print magazine. Foodism Toronto also covered the short documentary and event in their most recent issue. Other earned media and social content from these events is expected to be released in coming weeks. Reduce, Reuse, Ruminate was produced by Public and Stakeholder Engagement, a national check-

sources for producers. The breed association sites are excellent for especially genomic information and contacts lists of breeders. The Charolais Banner magazine is also a great source of information and if you are reading this you know all about that. It comes out eight times a year, three of which go to commercial cattlemen that have purchased bulls. Helping all the cattle breeds is the Canadian Beef Breeds Council.

Canadian Cattlemens Association and its off shoot, the BCRC (Beef Cattle Research Council) which has a myriad of printed materials linked to YouTube videos and there are webinars put on that are linked in an archive list. Great information for all cattlemen. They have just done a series of calf care videos. Easist is google “Calf 911” and see what comes up. They are really a series on ways we can save more calves whether purebred or commercial on our farms and ranches in many ways.

I want to personally welcome all visiting delegates and their families to the World Charolais Congress. This article was to review for you what we more or less do in cattle production in Canada. If have questions talk to the purebred Charolais breeders, they are great people and have taught me a lot over the years and we have all progressed together. Enjoy the Congress, the networking and your time in Canada. You are always welcome.
