POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

By the time you read this some of the early fall sales will have happened and final preparations for the rest of the fall sales will be well underway. The enthusiasm of the breeders this summer has been very good and I am sure with the strength of the spring bull sales and the increased interest in the Charolais breed, the fall sales will be very solid. I encourage you to participate where possible to add some new genetics to your program to see how they compare. Canadian Western Agribition is hosting a virtual show for all the breeds with the culmination of the event being the Beef Supreme Challenge. Entries close on October 22nd, and if you go to www. agribition.com you can find entry forms, rules, demo video etc. It is another way to promote your program this fall when you can’t take your show string to town. Over the years, the purebred business does boil down to about three things that will decide your success. Having good cattle is an important part, but probably them being well managed is more important. Feed is still the cheapest commodity in raising purebred cattle successfully. Good marketing is the second point that needs to be looked at and there are so many facets of this that I won’t get into it in this article, but I will say we are hosting a one day marketing seminar this fall that will cover many of the potential ways to be a successful marketer of purebred genetics. The third factor for long term success is good customer service. You must follow up with your customers and make sure they are satisfied with their purchases and 6

if they are not, you need to see how you can fi the situation. Many times, communication is all that is needed but you need to follow up and not just the day before your ne t sale. In August, the Canadian Beef Industry Conference was held online. This event that has moved across the country in previous years and was to be in British Columbia this summer before Covid. They had some e cellent speakers again that made it very interesting. The thing I liked about the virtual event was that you could view the sessions you wanted while driving, in the field, in the office or wherever and you didn’t have the e pense of time and money to attend in person. The downside of course is that you didn’t get the networking and visiting with fellow producers and industry people that you would by attending in person. The other thing I liked about the online event was that all speakers were recorded, and they were available to all who registered for the conference until the end of September to review. I did go and re-listen to some and listen to some I had missed while I was making some miles. Amanda Radke, a blogger and writer for BEEF magazine in the U.S.A., gave a great talk on how to handle yourself on social media or in person with people that are misinformed on animal agriculture. Some great food for thought and shows how necessary it is for all of us to be enthusiastic about raising beef and knowing the answers to some of this misinformation. Another session I found very interesting was Brian Perrilat, Manager Senior Analyst, Can a , speaking about where we are in the Canadian cattle cycle and his predictions for the fall. Something I did not realize is the cow herd in Canada is e panding, and shrinking in the States. We are now a net Charolais Banner • October 2020

importer of feeder cattle, but still a net e porter when it comes to fats and meat products around the world. Also, in this session was Brett Stuart, President, Global AgriTrends, who gave a global overview of protein production. If you didn t get e cited about being in Agriculture after listening to his presentation you weren’t listening. He talked about how the African Swine Fever (ASF) has decimated a big chunk of the Chinese hog industry and is moving across Europe, which will take more of this protein source off the market. If possible, plan to attend this event ne t summer in Penticton, British Columbia, or maybe it will be online again as an added bonus. It is very worthwhile. If you want to start a Charolais herd or e pand your e isting operation with some top-quality females, there are a number on offer this fall. Check out the offerings from one end of the country to the other, with many breeders showcasing their operations with cattle from the top of their programs. You will never go wrong buying quality cattle to improve your herd. Also, in this issue is the calendar of events for all the spring bull sales. If yours is missing or incorrect, please let us know so we can have them correct in the 2021 Charolais calendar if you have requested it to be there. If you haven’t been contacted by a youth member to be a part of the calendar, which is a fund raiser for the CCYA and hosting provincial association, again please contact us. If Jon Wright, Robbie Chomik, or I can be of any assistance aiding in your sale participation this fall, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. ntil ne t time, Helge

DES POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs

Helge By

Lorsque vous lirez ces quelques lignes, la saison des ventes d’automne aura déjà débuté et les préparatifs pour le reste des ventes d’automne seront entamées. L’enthousiasme des éleveurs a été présent tout l’été après de très bonnes ventes printanières ainsi que l’intérêt que la race semble regagner risque de produire d e cellentes ventes d’automne. Je vous encourage a participer ces ventes ui offriront de la nouvelle génétique à votre programme d’élevage et ceci est une occasion de se comparer ce ui offert sur le marché. L’Agribition Western Canadienne offrira une e position virtuelle pour chaque race qui sera culminé par le championnat inter-race nomm D fi du Boeuf Supreme. Les inscriptions se terminent le 22 octobre sur le site www.agribition. com où vous y retrouverez les formulaires d’inscriptions, une vidéo démonstrative ainsi que toutes les directives. C est une e cellente manière de faire la promotion de votre élevage sans avoir à se déplacer. Au fils des ans, la production de pur-sang et son succès se fondent sur trois éléments. Avoir un bon troupeau est important mais la manière que le troupeau est géré l’est encore plus. La moulée reste le moyen le plus économique pour nourrir votre élevage pur-sang. Votre marketing est le deu i me élément. Celui-ci comprend plusieurs manières de s’y prendre mais ce n’est pas le point ue e veu discuter pour l’instant. Ce sera pour un autre article mais si vous voulez un conseil, je vous suggère fortement de participer à notre séminaire de marketing d’une ourn e ui sera offert cette automne. Cette une occasion d e plorer plusieurs façons d’avoir du succès 8

dans un élevage de génétique pursang. Le troisième élément pour maintenir votre succès à long terme est votre service à la clientèle. Vous devez faire le suivi avec vos acheteurs pour vous assurez qu’ils sont satisfaits. S’ils ne le sont pas, vous devez savoir remédiez la situation. La plupart du temps, la communication est la seule chose nécessaire et éviter de le faire la semaine de votre vente. Au mois d’août passé, j’ai participé à la conférence de l’industrie du boeuf Canadien qui a été tenu virtuellement. Cet événement qui avait l’habitude de se déplacer d’un bout à l’autre du pays aurait dû avoir lieu en ColombieBritannique avant l’arrivée de la Covid. Comme toujours, nous avons eu des pr sentateurs e traordinaires qui ont rendus le contenu vraiment intéressant. L’avantage de tenir une conférence virtuellement est le fait que je pouvait l’écouter dans mon véhicule, dans le champs, au bureau et aucune dépense de transport ou de mon temps est survenu, ce qui n’aurait pas été le cas si je m’étais déplacé en personne. Le désavantage de ne pas se déplacer en personne est tout le manque de connections et d’avoir la chance de visiter avec d’autres producteurs et les gens de l’industrie. L’avantage que l’événement qui s’est déroulé virtuellement est que j’ai pu visionner les pr sentations en diff r . J’ai écouté les présentations manquées lorsque j’étais sur la route. Ces conférences sont disponibles jusqu’à la fin septembre pour ceu ui se sont inscrits à la conférence. Amanda Radke, une blogueuse du maga ine BEE au tats nis nous a fait une présentation qui nous éduquait comment se conduire sur les r seau sociau lors ue nous sommes confrontés avec des gens mal inform s sur les animau ou l’agriculture en général. Elle nous a fait pensé comment il est important de Charolais Banner • October 2020

rester enthousiasme à propos de notre élevage et d’avoir les bonnes réponses lors ue les fau id au sont pr sent s. Une autre session qui a été fort intéressante était celle de Brian Perrilat, gérant et analyste senior chez Can a . Il nous a fait part du cycle Canadien des bovins et ses prédictions pour l’automne. Une des choses que je n’avais pas réalisé est que la grosseur des troupeau au Canada est la hausse mais en baisse au tats Unis. Nous sommes maintenant un importateur de boeuf de finition mais aussi un e portateur pour les gras, la viande et ses sous-produits à travers le monde. Dans la même session, le président de Global AgriTrends, Brett Stuart, nous a présenté un aperçu de la production des protéines. Si vous n tes pas e cit de vivre de l’agriculture après avoir écouté cette présentation, vous n’écoutiez pas vraiment. Il nous a parlé de la peste porcine africaine qui a décimé un gros morceau de la production porcine en Chine est qui se déplace à travers l’Europe et que par conséquent, diminuera la production de cette protéine sur le marché. Si possible, je vous invite à participer à cette conférence qui aura lieu à Penticton en ColombieBritannique l’été prochain. Peut-être que celle-ci sera encore présentée virtuellement mais elle en vaut bien la peine. Si vous pensez partir un élevage Charolais ou bien d’agrandir votre troupeau avec des femelles de très bonne qualité, un grand nombre de ventes de femelles sera offert. Consultez ce qui est disponible d’un côté à l’autre du pays ainsi que plusieurs sujets à la tête de leur élevages. On ne pas peut pas se tromper lorsqu’on achète de la qualité pour améliorer son troupeau. Vous trouverez dans cette publication le calendrier des ...continued on page 16

As we maneuver through these uncertain times, we must remain vigilant and keep pushing our breed forward. The Board of Directors along with the Breed Improvement committee of the Canadian Charolais Association (CCA) have initiated a new genomic testing program. The CCA board is committed to advancing our breed and putting all the tools possible in the hands of our breeders, to help them succeed. The new program will benefit all members, as more data in the system leads to more accurate EPDs. Included in this program, the association will cover the cost of a 50K test on the dam of a walking sire, provided the natural sire is 50K tested. If you would like more information on this program, please contact the CCA office. The CCA will be starting the second Residual Feed Intake (RFI) trials at Lakeland College in mid October. We would like to thank the breeders from across the western provinces for committing replacement heifers to this trial. Boehringer Ingelheim has once again partnered with the CCA and will be suppling all the arrival day induction vaccines and we thank them for their continued support. There are plans under way to have a third intake of heifers in the spring of 2021, this intake will be for the late spring born heifers. We will post more information when we have it available. In the spring of 2020, the ‘Friends of Canadian Charolais Foundation’ (FCCF) was founded. The purpose of the FCCF is to promote education, research, and youth, to provide scholarships, bursaries, and prizes to aid in the advancement of beef production. The first ma or fundraiser had to be postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19. The FCCF was established Charolais Banner • October 2020

to benefit our breed and its members for many generations to come. The board of the FCCF, Tim Bullick, Helge By, Andre Steppler and Craig Scott, are available to answer any questions you may have on how the foundation can help you. The marketing opportunities this fall have been reduced because of the cancelation of most of the major shows, this is not a glass half empty scenario but a glass half full. Use this opportunity to e pand your marketing platforms, whether it be social media, print advertising or maybe this is the time to put up that highway or gate farm sign you have thought about for years. Reach out to your commercial customers and go watch their calves sell. Show that you support their program like they support yours. The fall calf run is just starting to get rolling, early indications suggest Charolais in uenced calves will command a premium once again. Our office staff work hard to provide the best service possible; we are always here to answer questions and to address concerns, so please reach out if you have questions. We are sending out updates and information more frequently with the assistance of electronic communication. Please take the time to read these emails, as this is how we communicate to our membership. The 2019 Annual report has been published on the CCA website, so we encourage all members to take the time to read over it. The 2019 financial report, committee reports, provincial reports plus all the awards are featured in this Annual report. The Canadian Charolais Association belongs to its members, so please do your best to stay informed and up to date with this new information.

Alors que nous traversons des temps incertains, nous devons rester vigilants et continuer à faire avancer notre race. Le conseil d’administration et le comité d’amélioration de la race de l’Association Charolais (ACC) ont lancé un nouveau programme de tests génomiques. Le conseil d’administration de l’ACC s’engage à faire progresser notre race et à mettre tous les outils possibles entre les mains de nos éleveurs, pour les aider à réussir. Le nouveau programme profitera tous les membres, car plus il y a des données dans le système plus nos EPD seront précis. Ce programme fait en sorte que l’association prendra en charge le coût du test 50K de la mère d’un taureau en service, à condition que ce taureau soit aussi testé à 50K. Si vous souhaitez plus d’informations sur ce programme, veuillez contacter le bureau du ACC. L ACC commencera un deu i me pro et de recherche sur l efficacit alimentaire résiduel (RFI) au Collège Lakeland à la mi-octobre. Nous tenons à remercier les éleveurs des provinces de l’Ouest pour leur engagement avec leurs génisses de remplacement dans le cadre de cette recherche. Boehringer Ingelheim contribuera de nouveau avec tous les vaccins d’induction le jour de l’arrivée et nous les remercions pour leur soutien continu. Des plans sont en cours pour avoir une troisième prise de génisses au printemps 2021, cette prise concernera les génisses nées à la fin du printemps. Nous publierons de plus amples informations lorsqu’elles seront disponibles. La Fondation des Amis du Charolais Canadien (FCCF) a été

fondée au printemps 2020. Son but est de promouvoir l’éducation, la recherche et la relève en fournissant des bourses d’études, du soutien financier et des pri pour aider l’avancement de la production bovine. La première grande collecte de fonds a dû être reportée à 2021 en raison de Covid 19. La FCCF a été créée au profit de notre race et de ses membres pour de nombreuses générations à venir. Le conseil d’administration de la FCCF soit Tim Bullick, Helge By, Andre Steppler et Craig Scott, sont disponibles pour répondre à toutes vos questions sur la manière dont la fondation peut vous aider. Les opportunités marketing de cet automne ont été réduites en raison de l’annulation de la plupart des grandes e positions, ce n est pas un sc nario à moitié vide mais un verre à moitié plein. Profite de cette opportunit pour étendre vos plates-formes de marketing, u il s agisse des r seau sociau , de la publicit dans des publications ou peut-être que c’est le moment de mettre en place un panneau d’autoroute ou une enseigne de ferme à votre entrée.

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

The COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions on public gatherings was taking effect in Canada in the heart of the 2020 bull sale season. This could have been devastating to our farmers and ranchers, but our industry quickly adapted, and bulls sold at prices similar to those of the previous year. This demonstrates the resiliency of Canadian cattle producers and something that we can all be proud of. We are now heading into the fall and the pandemic continues. While restrictions are slowly being lifted, there are still many in place that will disrupt our normal business operations into the new year. The restrictions and timelines for opening economies are different for each country, province and state. In some cases, it varies within a province, which makes this situation even more comple . Despite these impacts, we now have the advantage of time to prepare for the fall run of feeder calf, production sales and harvest. We need to recognize that

restrictions on international travel and between some regions within Canada will continue for the foreseeable future. It is important to communicate with our American and Me ican friends that Canadian beef cattle genetics are still able to be transported across the border with similar requirements that were in place prior to the pandemic. This also applies to other international destinations although delays should be e pected, and we need to plan accordingly. Canadian cattle and genetics can move, it is people that are facing travel and gathering restrictions. The cattle business in Canada is still open for business. Agriculture was deemed an essential service early in the pandemic and under most circumstances cattle producers are able to cross the Canada SA border to conduct business, which includes the transportation, purchasing of cattle and providing services. At the time of writing this article the Canada USA border is still closed to nonessential travel, so if you are planning to cross you will need to ensure your documentation is in place and you

can demonstrate the nature of your business in the other country. Every situation is different and depending on circumstances and reason for travel your eligibility to cross the border will vary. I recommend searching relevant websites for up to date information. They should include the Government of Canada- Public Health Agency (canada.ca), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (inspection.gc.ca), as well as your provincial health agency site and the one that you will be travelling to. There are still health protocols such as quarantine periods in place that need to be adhered to for everyone’s safety. Confirm eligibility and re uirements for travel early in your or international buyers planning process to avoid unnecessary disruptions and delays. If you are attending or hosting a production sale this fall, we have developed a set of recommended guidelines that will help you prepare and ensure your friends, customers, employees and family remain healthy. This and other information regarding the pandemic can be found on the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association website (www.cattle.ca cca resources covid 19 .

A Canadian Charolais Association program designed to actively involve more young people with the growing Charolais breed, resulted in the formation of the Canadian Youth Charolais Association at the CCA convention in Winnipeg in 1971. Provincial associations sponsored delegates to attend the two-day convention. Lyle Ross, 4-H specialist with the Manitoba Department of Agriculture and Claude Lalonde, Canadian Council on 4-H, Ottawa, joined with the group as they mapped out their plans for the coming year’s activities. Mavis Malmberg, Coaldale, Alberta, was the first president and was quoted as saying the group’s purpose was to “promote Charolais to the youth of the nation, the cattlemen of tomorrow, and relating the ideas and philosophies of the youth group back to the Canadian Charolais Association. e re offering young people an opportunity to become actively involved in all areas of the cattle business. We’re the beef producers of the future, and by getting started right now, we hope to establish guidelines and policies that will enable us to move into our

own full-scale cattle operation with a minimum of difficulties. e re looking for long term, lasting benefits which will aid us in the future.” The CYCA asked to have representation on the CCA board (non-voting), as well as provincial boards (voting). Their starting focus was to promote the breed and grow enthusiastic membership for their organization and the breed. They mainly focused on displays at Calgary Stampede. Their meetings were held in Calgary and at the CCA Convention and sometimes Canadian Western Agribition. Things were different then. People didn’t travel as easily back then.

There was no internet, no te ting, no facebook and phoning long-distance was an e pense. Eventually, we ust quit being active as our group was small and people aged-out. It wasn’t easy to grow nationally at the time,” e plains Grace Rudiger Jo wiak, Alberta, who was elected secretary at the 197 AGM where Murray Oram, Saskatchewan, was elected president. 1973 saw Jim Cruikshank, Alberta, elected president and Kathy Oram, Saskatchewan, elected secretary in what seemed to be the end at this stage. For a few years, there was no youth activity documented in the Charolais Banner. In 1977, a small group of 19

youth from Saskatchewan started to become active. Randy Biensch, President; Kim Oram and Helge By organized a picnic hosted by Perrins, south of Beechy on the north side of Lake Diefenbaker, with a Junior Show. A weekend affair, riday saw campers and trailers trickle in from across the province with cattle and horses in tow. No less than 29 trail riders saddled across the hillsides the following day from among the 250 odd attendees, who otherwise had a lazy day of socializing until the big bbq, 150 lb of hamburgers provided by the Perrins were supplemented by a grand pot luck of sides, that can hardly be dreamt of today. This was followed by pillow fights while straddling a large pole five feet above the ground. Champions were auctioned off, netting the CCA building fund “a fat” 781, 1977 dollars. In a fierce family showing, the Delaheys took three of the titles: Jerrold won the “middle age” section, Dave the Junior, and Barb the women’s! The “old timer” grudge match saw Merle Sparrow, a past SCA president, s uare off with the residing Marcel DeRoo, in which Sparrow was stubborn but finally took a dive and Marcel came out the victor. Of course, it being Marcel s idea, jovial allegations of months of prior training abounded. On Sunday, the junior show was “a resounding success” and saw 36 animals from across the province 20

“prepared and showed in a very professional manner”. “For his Champions, Judge Dale Norheim, selected Charline Sammy 9H shown by Charlene Wendel as Grand Champion emale and Miss Darneth 38G shown by Darwin Plewis for Reserve Champion. Anne Moulding made the Championship blankets.” Darwin Plewis and Charlene Wendel also won the Junior and Senior Showmanship Awards respectively, while Darlene Voegli won the Intermediate. The ne t two Junior events were coordinated between the hosts and the juniors. 1979 saw an SCA Picnic, at Oram’s Valleys End Charolais, Central Butte, with “Judge Doug Howe selecting Rainbow Cyr D Mr. K, shown by Randy Biensch, of Marsden, as Champion Bull. Champion female was Miss Tine Supreme, shown by Kim Oram, of Central Butte, with Reserve emale going to KP Miss Darneth 10J, shown by Darwin Plewis of Pennant. Laura Petracek, Yarbo, won the herdsperson award. After the show there was time for a pasture tour through the Oram-Philpott cow herd and swimming at Lake Diefenbaker. The activities whetted the crowd’s appetite for the hearty meal of barbecue beef, baked potatoes and potluck that rounded out a very successful picnic.” 1980’s SCA picnic, at Floyd Glass’s Farm, Prince Albert, is the last that this writer has from Charolais Banners past. Hailed as another success, it again featured a pillow fight fundraising auction, pot luck barbecue, dancing and socializing into the wee hours of the morning, and a good, well-groomed set of animals, Charolais Banner • October 2020

judged by Reiny Wendel, Central Butte. Although this was the last Charolais youth show in Saskatchewan for years, it had more classes and so more winners than the prior years. Grand Champion Bull was Chardel Lawless 0L, e hibited by Dave Delahey, Moose Jaw, and emale was Miss leur de Lis 1K, e hibited by Lissa Voegeli, Maymont. After the early efforts of the SYCA faded away, a group in Alberta organized a Canadian National Charolais Junior Heifer Show, which ran for at least 5 years from 1982. The first were held in Ali , Alberta. In 198 , for e ample, Once again, the show moved smoothly under the organization of the Junior Show Committee red Noad, Ali ; Neil Gillies, Tees; Dale Moulton, Ali ; and Bill Wilson, Erskine.” Full credit to this committee for organizing a show three years in a row that each saw dozens of animals and participants from across Alberta and beyond. Further, although the show was restricted to females, these shows of the 80s saw e pansion into grooming demonstrations and competitions, judging competitions and stallman awards – all developments that continued to grow and evolve in later iterations of Charolais Youth Conferences. Although some may deem the name “National” show might be a bit of a stretch since a majority of animals and participants didn’t travel all that far to Ali , it was the only documented Charolais youth show organized by anyone in the country in those years, and they certainly encouraged the few that came from further afield to do so. That a small group of organizers found it easier to make an annual show in one place is certainly understandable, and so it was simply left for later Charolais enthusiasts to organi e shows in different parts of the country to increase participation and outreach.

The slaves were being sold for two hours of work and on offer were Audrey Horkoff, Reuben Ehret, Don Panko, Janet Ledingham, Doug Howe, Henry Begrand, Ron Peters, Ron Martin, Lorna MacMillan, Helge By and Jerrold Delahey. They raised a total of $2970. The funds raised through the slave auction, plus some CCA funds helped sponsor eight participants to attend the Minnesota conference. They were Kim Rintoul, ON; Elliot McGregor, ON; Clint Robertson, MB; Victor Rosso, SK; Lorna MacMillan, SK; Cam Sparrow, SK; Brent Allison, AB; Denise Jorgensen, AB and Kevin Boon, AB. The group came back with lots of ideas to get a leadership conference organized in Canada. In 1987, the National Heifer Show in Red Deer, Alberta, was followed by the first Canadian Charolais Youth Leadership Conference in Olds, Alberta. It was here the name changed from CYCA to CCYA. Attending were about 25 participants from Alberta to Nova Scotia (and a couple Australians!), who saw a day of seminars on topics such as marketing,

herd health and embryo transfers. The next day saw the competitions in grooming, judging, public speaking, as well as a national meeting that saw Victor Rosso, of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and Jeff Barker, of Hagersville, Ontario, elected as president and vice president, and a plan to host the following Conference a province over, in Regina, in 1988. The 1989 conference was held in Ridgetown, Ontario, and 1990 was in Pincher Creek, Alberta. Although these Conferences were void of animals, the educational seminars

were always highly esteemed and the value of the networking, continued organization and annually held meetings of the Canadian Charolais Youth Association cannot be overstated. It was difficult to continue a youth organized event with any continuity as the seniors were in the program for such a short time. When they are most capable of organizing such an event, they are only around for a year or two before they age out. There can be gaps where provinces have no upcoming youth members to replace

The first CCYA Conference to resemble the modern ones we know and love occurred in 1993, in Camrose, Alberta, where “almost 80 enthusiastic youth were in attendance from across Canada”, as well as a couple foreign e change students. Millang Charolais along with a large group of volunteers were responsible for getting this going. In addition to the 55 animal show were a familiar assortment of competitions including judging, marketing and showmanship. Along with an annual CCYA members’ meeting that saw Kasey Phillips elected president, the Charolais Youth organi ation finally seemed to have the momentum to continue annually as long as the breeders and the youth supported it.

conference were Clinton Phillips, Ken Aylesworth (CCA GM , Tim Bullick, Lester Millang, Jack Rairdan, rank Cholak and Gord Rattray. This group saw a need and dedicated time to get this first one planned and off the ground. The youth didn’t have much to do with planning at this stage because many of them were too young and had no idea what they were trying to plan. It needed the vision of this group to get it started. They developed the points program used to tabulate the Aggregate championships. The points awarded for the various competitions has played a role in the success of the Conference and Show. Participants are awarded five points for having an animal at the show. There are no additional points for placing or winning. This places the emphasis on the education and networking. It also provides an opportunity for youth to participate from farther distances in a meaningful way, without bringing cattle. Tim Bullick remembers going down to the barn at one of the early conferences to find Gary Rookes leading the last of the Manitoba cattle into the barn after washing in the morning. He asked him what he was doing and Gary was surprised to learn the kids were e pected to look after the cattle. This has been a mainstay at CCYA. Parents are not allowed to participate in looking after the cattle or fitting them for the show. There have been a few parents throughout the years that needed some help realizing

this was a benefit of the program, but the kids actually prefer it and learn from one another. You learn by doing, but you also learn by teaching, which is what the seniors do. The ne t three Conferences continued on the successes of the one in Camrose, being held in Lloydminster, Saskatoon and Vermilion, with ever-growing participation and involvement. In 1994, the CCA tasked Les Ledene, CCA Systems Manager, and Jodi Robertson, former CCA employee, to write the points tabulation computer program for the conference awards. This was a huge undertaking and a huge success. The program has weathered the test of time and been updated with additional competitions. There was one more major change in the hosting format to be what we have today. In 1997, Owen Sound, Ontario, hosted the first Conference in eastern Canada, and was the biggest conference to that point, nearing a hundred participants. Since Owen Sound, the Conferences have cycled from Ontario, West through Manitoba, Saskatchewan and to Alberta and back, every four years. This innovation in organizational structure probably does more than anything else to ensure the continuity of the Canadian Charolais Youth Association and their Conferences. Firstly, it allows for greater nationwide participation not only in the Conferences but in their organization, with a mostly fresh crop of youth leaders organizing for their home province every four years. Secondly, this actually reduces the burden on any one region to organize year in and year out, spreading both the responsibilities and benefits of having shows in different areas. And thirdly, with all the e tra participation and organization, the youth of the Charolais industry have built, year by year, a strong, robust and connected Charolais community across the country, and countless friendships that have lasted lifetimes. The youth that have travelled out of province have gained so much more. It is an opportunity to see a 26

new place, see how other people do things and take home pieces that can improve their skills and their own event. It is never the same e perience as it is in your home province. After 199 , The CCYA E ecutive consisted of the host province’s planning committee. The youth were to plan the program and the parents took action to make it happen, allowing the youth to be participants. As there was no national board, this allowed for regional differences of the event. In June, 1999, the CCA had Lorna MacMillan on staff as Director of Public Relations and Education. As part of her job description, she was the Youth Coordinator from June 2000-September 2001. During this period she worked with the presidents Carrie Cholak, Alberta, and Shannon Hicks, Ontario, to develop a policies and procedures book for hosting the CCYA Conference and Show that included timelines. This book has been updated and revised continuously and is still used today. They also introduced and implemented a Code of Conduct and created the CCYA s first web page. The strength of the organization was growing but there was room for improvement. The youth wanted to move back to a National Board that could look after continuity and guidance for the provinces. They saw an opportunity to have national programs that should not fall on the host committee that already had a full agenda. It would require an entirely new format to strengthen the organization. In 2000, the CCA sponsored Lorna MacMillan and Shannon Hicks to

attend the AIJCA Conference in Te as. The purpose was to study the functioning of their national board to assist the formation of the Canadian. This trip was found so beneficial, the CCA has continued to assist members in attending the U.S. national youth event and American participants have often attended the Canadian event. The first CCYA National Board since 1990 was elected in Stettler at the 2000 conference and started having conference calls to get organized in 2001. The original e ecutive was Shannon Hicks, Janelle Huberdeau, Manitoba, Crystal Blake, Saskatchewan and Erin Murphy, Alberta. The first couple of years they were kept busy starting the genetics program, developing new member packages, starting the Conference and Show Honouree and overhauling the Policies and Procedures to create the

National Board and Conference and Show as two separate groups. There are always outstanding individuals, often but not always parents, whose dedication to the youth program continues year after year, wherever its locale. With this in mind, the 2001 Conference in Barrie, ON, the first CCYA Honouree was named Ed illiams, Macrorie, Saskatchewan, for his “dedication has known no provincial boundaries, as he can be seen at all youth conferences with shovel in hand. He is there to do whatever is necessary before,

The participants have to work together to get all of the jobs done

during and after any conference. His eager, friendly attitude has made him a friend to all the youth and earned him this very deserving honour.� This statement, perhaps bar the shovel, easily applies to all the Honourees recognized every year, and is a testament to the joyful dedication that makes the CCYA rewarding for all. The National Board had their first face-to-face meeting outside of the Conference and Show at the CCA office in ebruary, of 00 . It was the intention to have one meeting per year in this fashion. Eventually, the meeting left the Calgary location and one was held in Regina, before they were moved to the Saskatoon location in early January, where they still remain. Each province had an adult advisor who was invited to attend these meetings. Darwin Rosso was one of the first adults to attend and was a mainstay providing continuity and

leadership since 2003. Very few other advisors have attended with this dedication. Funding the new group was partially by the CCA and partially by half of the profits of the annual conference. This did not always find the National Board in a stable position to run their programs. Eventually, they obtained sponsorship from the Charolais Banner calendar project for the sale of sale dates on the calendar, and for a period, funds from the T Bar C Invitational golf tournament. The National Board started a semen auction at the Agribition or National sales, where semen is generously donated by breeders. As the years progressed, it became apparent that not all provinces were supporting the National Board with their share of profits or did not profit from their event. Recently, the CCA has decided to give the National Board $5000 annually to ensure their stability and leave the provinces to handle their own fundraising and keep their profits from hosting conferences. This is a development that shows the depth of the program. Many CCA directors were either CCYA Alumni or had children in the program and recognized its value. In 2003, 2nd Generation Awards were added to the program to honour alumni that stuck with the program, saw its value and started bringing

their own children. There have been many awarded over the years and it won’t be long before a third generation award will be presented. Jill Debenham (Beck , Milestone, was the last CCA employee to be a National Board advisor and she followed Lorna MacMillan. She worked with the CCA until 2004, but stayed on as the National Board advisor until 2007. The National Board made a switch to selecting an Advisor from their Alumni at this time. The first was Katrina Coughlin, Ontario, 20082012; followed by Brandon Sparrow, Saskatchewan, 2012-2014; Kirstin Sparrow, Saskatchewan, 2014-2019; and Shae-Lynn Evans, Saskatchewan, 2019 and currently. Another factor that plays a role in differentiating this event from other breeds is that every participant competes in every activity. There is no opting out or skipping events. Team events are made up with juniors from across Canada. Things are planned to make them mi and not stick in their home province circles. Ed Williams brought the Herdsman Group concept to the event to do just this. All participants of all ages, are mi ed into herdsman groups whether they have cattle there or not. They are responsible, as a group, to look after the cattle and each other to get everything done during the week. Ed sponsored the prizes for this for a number of years. The herdsman groups are a big part of the program and there is always anticipation to find out who is in your group and what new people you will meet. “The program really develops the youth in many ways. They build confidence in speaking and presenting themselves and it is fun to watch the positive changes over the years. One year, two little girls came to me quite upset. One was crying her eyes out and could hardly make eye contact and certainly couldn’t speak. The other proceeded to tell me that her friend had signed up for Individual Selling and didn’t understand what it was and there 30

was no way she could speak to a judge. She really wanted to switch to Maga ine Ad in the marketing portion of the conference. We had just told the kids there was no switching allowed. She was already traumatized enough and we switched her. It wasn’t very many years later she was competing in the International Judging Competition at Agribition as part of her province’s team. This is the kind of confidence the program builds, e plains Candace By. Another e ample is when Natass a By was being interviewed for a rugby e change to go to New ealand. She was really nervous while she sat waiting, then it came to her. “This is just like individual selling and I am selling myself.” She got the scholarship and spent a summer in New ealand. It really is a type of leadership conference. Many of the past thousands of participants have gone on to be provincial and national board members, leaders in the agriculture field and successful business people. Many are still in the business and value the friendships they made through networking at these events.

In 1995, the judging competition was raised to three classes, aggregate and herdsman awards were added, the goodwill award was revamped and changed to the ambassador award and the art competition was added. 1996 saw the addition of the pie auctions that raised many a peal of laughter and no small amount of money fundraised. International participation in the CCYA Conferences has always been welcome, and in more recent years has been much more encouraged and expanded to more than a few token Americans, for example when twelve youth from eight countries came to the Brandon conference in 2018 as part of the Charolais International Youth Program.

His intentions were good, but the drawback was in how long it took to finish the competitions. It just took too long. The next largest events were in Moose Jaw in 2003 with 139 participants, and Cold Lake in 2004 with 128 participants. The Cold Lake Conference has been remembered by many as the most fun. It was so different The Ray and Leona Murphy family went all out and prepared an event unlike others. It included team building led by people from the air base, sand castle building on the beach, swimming/ basketball or oor hockey in the base facilities, etc. It was ust so much fun Street hockey became part of the conference for a number of years and

The youth learned more about their Canadian practises by teaching the internationals and gained knowledge of other countries. This opens a new opportunity for Canadian youth to attend events in other countries in the future. 2018 saw the introduction to the Little Chars program. It was started to take some younger children out of the barns and gain some knowledge at their level away from the older kids. It was very successful and Shae-Lynn and Paula Evans did a wonderful job. The largest conference to date was held in Brandon in 1998 with 148 registered participants and 90 head.

a pack of hockey sticks went home in a trailer after the conference to the home of the next conference. Mount Your Camel made its appearance in 2010 in Dauphin and has become a mainstay and hotly contested battle annually. And who could forget the CCYA branded benches that adorned the herdsman group stalls for so many years? Aaron Williams, Saskatchewan, made the brand and it was used for a number of years. Does anyone know where it is? How about the time in Dauphin when teams had a youth member stand on a chair against a building and used duct tape to make them stay there when the chair was pulled away? Activities have ranged from mechanical bull riding to two-step dancing lessons. The variety has been met with enthusiasm and all have made special memories. In addition to the mainstays are, over the years, what amount to a wide variety of seminars on every possible aspect of the industry, from judging, grooming, marketing, and animal nutrition to salesmanship,

At the end of every conference is an always legendary banquet, where the youth surprise with their selfgrooming capabilities, awards are given, a feast is shared, and the feet dance until the DJ quits. For many a youth, the CCYA is the highlight of the summer, with memories and friendships made that last lifetimes, even though everyone learns something. It wasn t always easy, or a sure thing, but through years of development the CCYA and their conferences have become such an integral part of the Charolais community, many breeders can t even imagine what the industry would look like without them – just ask them To all the parents, participants, volunteers, organizers and sponsors, Thank You.

breeding program development, hay judging, and even carcass grading. Also much more variable were the ice-breaking mixers/competitions that have seen no small amount of shenanigans. I ve seen greased pig and unbroken calf round-ups, more eggs thrown around than I can count, juniors duct taped to walls, water fights, and every other imaginable way to make a mess and have the fun that is as much a part of the CCYA as any other. And these are just the organized shenanigans, to say nothing of the stories the reader will have to hear from former youth members. Many naps were hard-earned in the conferences, and have been seen to be taken in creative ways, especially if one doesn t want to be woken up by a bucket of water The adventures are not exclusive to the youth and there are many parent stories that could be told as well. Parents have a great time networking while the youth are busy, they tour herds and have benefited through knowledge sharing in areas outside their home region. Charolais Banner • October 2020

HERD HEALTH

Lice are Increasing in Prevalence across Western Canada Roy Lewis DVM

I have been hearing lots of complaints about scratching cattle and hair loss the last wo years, in the winter in western Canada. You, as purebred or commercial producers, may need to change somewhat the way you routinely treat for lice. Timing and type of product used need to be closely looked at. Veterinarians may be changing a bit what they are advising to their clients. We may have got complacent over the years because the ivermectin type pour-on products really did a good job. With many years of usage it is looking like the endectocides are lacking some efficacy and potentially resistance may be developing. With biting lice feeding on the surface and always moving we couldn t e pect a systemic product to totally control them but now we are also identifying large numbers of sucking lice coming back. They have found on lice investigations that Lice are the most common and persistent parasite in wintered cattle in Western Canada. There is one species of biting lice (they cause severe irritation and scratching) and three of sucking lice (they cause anaemia and weight loss) on Canadian cattle. In one older two-year study of calves entering southern Alberta feedlots between 5795% of calves were lousy to varying degrees. This indicates a very high infestation rate on some of our cowcalf herds. I know this to be true from examinations and autopsies we do especially on small herds, which often do not treat. We often identify lice when doing C-sections or hooking up calves to IV uids and once the area is clipped, lice are very obvious. These findings are being reported more and more by veterinarians. Herds will have carrier animals, 40

ones that have an abnormally high population of lice. These animals may be immunosuppressed for some reason or have a concurrent disease. Cattle in poor nutritional shape will have lowered immune responses and allow lice to build up quickly. This is also true if cattle become extremely loaded with internal worms. Today s confinement and larger herds can exacerbate lice transmission. Young calves are especially vulnerable since a lot of their energy is being put into growth. It is e tremely important to have the cow s lice free at the start of the calving season, so the calves don t become infested. The close proximity to each other and sucking the udder allow for easy transmission of lice between dam and calf. I have seen severe lice buildups in calves as young as two weeks. Our strategy needs to be to treat when it is the right time and lice populations are increasing which is the very late fall or early winter. It is getting colder and as cattle s winter coats get longer, it is more difficult to groom the lice out by licking. I believe some herds are treated when convenient which may be way too early. With good nutrition and keeping internal parasite numbers low the immune system is better able to cope with lice. The Macrocyclic Lactones (ivermectin type pour on products) in the early winter which have a residual followed up by the pyrethroid family of pour-ons in January or February may be the best one-two combination we have at the current time. Many producers, if seeing the reoccurrence of lice, are switching to the Group 3 pyrethroid s, such as Boss, Saber or Cylence as they have indications for both types of lice. These are also small dose pour-on products and because they are a different class of chemical seem to be effective and have uite Charolais Banner • October 2020

short withdrawals. These are not long-term residual products, so it is recommended to retreat cattle in two to three weeks if necessary. By changing up our treatments, alternating between the endectocides to these pyrethroids, it may be a way to get greater effectiveness. Also, if you applied the endectocides in the cold winter and got icing up of the product that greatly reduces its effectiveness for sure. Endectocides have a freezing temperature not much below -10C, so that potentially could have been a problem in application the last two years. Again correct dosage applied along the backline is what you are after. Spread it out along the entire backline as much as possible. It is probably advisable to apply any of the pour on products, whether Macrocyclic Lactones or Pyrethroid products, on warmer days above the ten below range. Oilers are also effective if we can get carriers other than diesel fuel to stay a liquid in the cold of the winter. Mineral oil and canola oil get very viscous in the cold of the winter. I have seen lice even in show cattle so they are definitely around. It is a matter of watching for lice and getting checked if you think there are lice after treatment. Treat cattle as late as possible in the fall to get maximum effect and watch for reoccurrence in the spring in the form of scratching, hair loss and seeing lice. If you used endectocide initially, the second treatment if necessary may need to be the pyrethroid type products. We all know lice decrease productivity, so let s work together to keep populations low but timely treatment so efficacy of these products remain high.

ASSOCIATION NEWS

The Manitoba Charolais Association proceeded with their 53rd Annual General Meeting on Saturday, July 25th, and was well received and supported by its members. The meeting was hosted at C2 Charolais, Jeff and Jackie Cavers and family, at the farm near La Riviere. 25 members and their families took the opportunity to partake in the socializing with fellow breeders while maintaining their social distance. Prior to the start of the meetings, attendees got the opportunity to either golf 9 holes at Manitou Golf Club, or go Ziplining at Hywire Zipline. Once the golf games and ziplining were concluded, the attendees made their way to C2 Charolais, where the meeting and the Manitoba Junior Charolais Assocation activity were going to be held, and the guests were treated to the hospitality put forth by their hosts. The meeting began at 3:30 p.m., with the regular business taking place, which included approval of the agenda, reading of last year s MCA AGM minutes, 019 financial report review, committee reports, and the nominations and voting of the directors, and the nomination and voting for MCA Purebred Ambassador of the Year and Commercial Breeder of the Year. Jeff Cavers, of La Riviere, was re-elected for another term as president of the Manitoba Charolais Association. Hans Myhre, Dauphin, remains the 1st Vice President. Michael Hunter, Roblin, was re elected to fill the nd Vice President position. Rae Trimble Olson continues to fill the role of Secretary Treasure for the MCA board. Jared Preston, of Ste Rose du Lac, Tyler Stewart, of o warren, Jeff Cavers and Michael Hunter were reelected to serve another term on the MCA Board of Directors. At the year end of 2019, the financial reports showed assets of just under $17,000, total revenue of 44

Manitoba Charolais AGM $31,139, and total expenses for the year of $30,222, resulting in a slight revenue over expenses of $917. The largest expenditure on the books for the year was the printing and publishing of the MCA Bulletin, the semi-annual publication that is put together by the MCA. Promotions and sponsorships was the second largest expenditure of 2019, with a lot of the sponsorship money going toward youth based events. There were 63 water pails awarded to 4-H members in Manitoba who exhibited Charolais or Charcross animals in 2019. The MCA awarded 2 scholarships in 2019 valued at $750 each to Jaylen Hill and Madison Johnson. Members of the MCA nominated, voted for and awarded C2 Charolais, the Cavers family, with the honour of being named the MCA Charolais Ambassador of the Year for 2020. The MCA Commercial Breeder of the Year was voted on and awarded to W5 Farms, Darcy and Parker Watson of Rossendale, MB. While the MCA meeting was taking place, the Manitoba Charolais Youth took the opportunity to have a small meeting of their own to discuss their business for the year and catch up with their friends.

At the conclusion of the meetings, attendees were given the opportunity to tour the pastures and see the herd at C2 Charolais, followed by supper and an evening of visiting and catching up with the attendees. This was well received in this time of social distancing, where the opportunities have been few and far between.

CHAROLAIS COMMUNIQUE

Are you a Rider or a Pusher? F. Rodney James

Editor’s note: Rodney James started the Charolais Banner in 1966 and was the publisher until 1983. This is an early edition of his editorial column. In this 60th Anniversary year, it is interesting to look back to see how some things stay the same. No, this editorial doesn t have anything to do with drugs, although there are times when you sometimes wonder if some of our breeders are under some type of tranquilizer. I suppose that in most organizations there are those who are willing to work and those who are willing to let them, A number of annual meetings of provincial associations as well as Canadian Charolais Association are coming up during the next few months, Anyone who cannot be bothered or feels he cannot afford the time to attend the meetings has no right to criticize the actions or programs of the association. The attitude “Let Joe do it” simply isn t good enough. And this doesn t ust apply to involvement in association affairs. Are you e pecting your associations to do things for you that you should be doing yourself? A couple of months ago my editorial emphasized the need for establishing markets for your cattle locally, and pointed out the potential customers that may be overlooked. You cannot afford modesty in the purebred cattle business. The old adage “Build a better mouse trap and people will beat a path to your door”, simply doesn t apply anymore in this competitive world. If you aren t proud enough of the Charolais breed of cattle to promote

them you shouldn t be raising them. In some respects the up-breeding program and our open A.I. policy have been bad for the promotion of our breed. That statement will probably raise the hair on many breeders necks. But if you will bear with me, I will explain. Many breeders have gotten into the purebred Charolais business without investing a dollar purchasing Charolais breeding stock. They have purchased semen and after a few years have high percentage Charolais. They have invested very little more than if they had been breeding commercial cattle. Therefore, almost any premium that they receive for their Charolais is profit. As a result, many have not been forced for economic reasons to get out and take the lead promoting Charolais. On the other side, are those that mortgaged the farm as well as their wife and kids to buy Charolais. These people are committed. In order to protect their investment and their future, they get out and devote time to promotion of the breed and affairs of the association. While we all know that we have a great breed of cattle, they did not get to where they are today solely on their own merits. There have been tremendous sacrifices made by men and women who were dedicated and truly believed in the merits of Charolais. Not only have these people devoted their time for no renumberation, they have also spent thousands of dollars in travel and advertising to promote the breed. Have you ever stopped to consider this when a breeder places an ad in any magazine that he is helping all Charolais breeders promote their

Charolais Banner • October 2020

cattle? Anytime the word Charolais is put in front of non-Charolais people, it is breed promotion. Whenever a story about Charolais appears in a magazine or newspaper when there is an interview on radio or TV – all breeders are getting some mileage. What about the Banner? A handful of breeders made the Banner possible Since the beginning many more have joined the ranks of advertisers, making it possible to expand the magazine into a promotion piece that we are hopeful you are proud to show your banker or anyone else. Are you doing your part? Or are you sitting back reaping the benefits of the efforts of others In the early years of Charolais, the road was rough and up hill, but the numbers were fewer and therefore the Charolais wagon was easier to push. The past few years, the road got quite smooth – demand exceeded supply and everyone made money. The wagon rolled from the momentum given in the early big push. Today competition is keen, not only from new breeds, but also from the long established breeds that are making tremendous improvement in their cattle. Even though the road may be smoother now, there are more breeders and a heavier load to carry, so it s impossible for a few pushers to carry the load for the group. The Charolais breed cannot afford a high percentage of riders because the “pushers” are going to get tired. Climb down off the wagon and ask yourself, “What can I do for Charolais Be a P SHER not a RIDER, you will be surprised at the rewards.

CANADIAN CHAROLAIS YOUTH ASSOCIATION NEWS Evan Jamieson, Director

We hope everyone is staying safe right now Unfortunately, there was no 2020 conference to recap, but we are very much looking forward to having the 2021 conference in Alberta. With no conference to discuss, I will highlight some of the opportunities available this fall for Charolais youth. The Charolais Superstar sale is happening on November 28th in Saskatoon, and this sale offers a chance to support the CCYA. With no Agribition this year, the annual semen auction is being held in conjunction CCYA NATIONAL BOARD charolaisyouth@gmail.com President: Keegan Blehm ee b ahoo ca Vice-President: Reegan McLeod Reeganmc11@gmail.com Treasurer: son Blac blac bern hot ail co

with the Superstar Sale, and the proceeds go towards the Canadian Charolais Youth Association. There will be some great semen on offer, all from breed leading bulls. This is an opportunity to get some world class Charolais genetics, while simultaneously supporting the breed s future. One province over, The Alberta Select Sale offers a variety of different opportunities for juniors. This sale is on December 12th, at esterner Park in Red Deer. In past years, Alberta and B.C. youth have been entitled to a $1000 sale credit, which when utilized is a great way to get a project for an upcoming CCYA

conference. If you are looking for a great way to build your herd with some of the best Charolais cattle Alberta has to offer, then the Alberta Select Sale is a top place to look. These are just two sales out of many that are happening this fall, and I encourage all youth to take a look at what opportunities there are out there. There is no shortage of sales this fall for youth to find a female for the 2021 conference, or to help build your herd. So be sure to take a look at what is available Hopefully we can all see each other at the 2021 conference in Alberta, stay safe
