POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

Here it is the end of September and fall hit with a bang in Western Canada, with snow across some of the western prairies. It has been a challenging summer and fall for many right across the country with excessive moisture and it has been tough to get dry feed or grain in the bin. Here is hoping we now have a long warm fall. Candace and I hosted nine young adults from six countries this summer for eight days around the CCYA Conference in Weyburn. This Charolais International initiative to get young adults together to learn how each do youth events in their countries, or to encourage them to get some started was great. The Charolais International Youth Program was supposed to go to Australia this year, but with the drought they were experiencing, they were forced to decline, so we hosted it for the second year in a row. Read the article on their time here in this issue. I think you will find their perspectives interesting. Next summer the International Youth program is going to the USA, which is hosting their Junior National in South Dakota. Also, full coverage of the CCYA event is in the issue and was a

6

larger event than the past number of years with 90 youth and 90 head of cattle. In this issue, you will see our coverage of the Charolais International Technical Conference held in Ireland in August. This too was a great educational event with 10 Canadians attending the eight days and covering several herds, their National show and research projects and presentations. Next summer is the World Charolais Congress in Australia from August 5th to 15th with pre and post tours available. The Australians will show you a great time, some excellent cattle, and it is interesting country. The Congress starts in Brisbane where a large show will be held, and it will end with sightseeing in Sydney. Information is on charolaisinternational.com with a full program and registration coming later this fall. Many of the early fall shows in the east are finished and are reported in this issue. See who is out and about and doing the winning with what pedigrees. The National show is in Toronto and I hope many of you can make the trip. The Alberta Association is running the Player’s Club Bull Calf Futurity and Pair of Heifer Calves

show again at FarmFair, in Edmonton. This was a great event last year and a large turnout made it a great place to network with fellow breeders. If you want to start a Charolais herd or expand your existing 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 the 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 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 fundraiser for the Provincial and National Youth Associations, again, please contact us. We are now off to Quebec for the start of the fall sales. 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. Until next time, Helge

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Dans nos champs Helge By

Nous voici à la fin du mois de septembre et l’automne s’est pointée de force dans l’ouest Canadien, apportant avec elle de la neige pour certaines provinces. Les récoltes de la fin de l’été et du début de l’automne étaient un défi grâce à un taux d’excès d’humidité qui rend le séchage du foin et l’entreposage des grains beaucoup plus difficile. Espérons un automne long et chaud. Candace et moi étions les hôtes pour neuf jeunes adultes provenant de six pays pour une durée de huit jours lors de la conférence CCYA qui a eu lieu à Weyburn cette été. Cette initiative internationale a comme but de faire découvrir la façon que différents évènements se déroulent dans chaque pays et ainsi, promouvoir la création de nouvelles expériences. Le programme international des jeunes Charolais devait se déplacer en Australie cette année mais en raison de la dure sécheresse subie cette année, ce voyage fut annulé. Ceci est la raison pour laquelle nous avons été les hôtes pour une deuxième année consécutive. Je vous invite à lire l’article qui nous fait part de leur expérience dans cette publication. Je crois que vous allez aimer leurs perspectives. L’été prochain, le programme des jeunes se déroule aux États-Unis lors du congrès Junior National dans le Dakota du sud. Vous pourrez aussi lire notre section sur la conférence CCYA. Nous avons eu un groupe de

8

90 participants et 90 têtes de bovins. Ceci représente une hausse de participation comparativement aux années précédentes. Un résumé du congrès international technique Charolais qui s’est déroulé en Irlande au mois d’août se retrouve aussi dans le numéro. Un total de 10 canadiens ont participé à cet événement éducatif pour une durée de huit jours à travers plusieurs visites de troupeaux, une exposition nationale et des présentations de projets de recherches. Le prochain congrès international Charolais est prévu du 5 au 15 août 2020 en Australie. Ce congrès offre une option d’itinéraire pré et postconférence pour les intéressés. Les Australiens sauront vous divertir avec d’excellents bovins à travers leur charmant pays. Le congrès débute à Brisbane lors d’une grande exposition et se termine en visite touristique dans la ville de Sydney. Pour plus d’informations, veuillez consulter le site: charolaisinternational.com pour en connaitre d’avantage sur la totalité de l’événement et les inscriptions. Vous retrouvez les résultats sur la plupart des expositions dans se sont déroulées dans l’est du pays. Consultez ces résultats pour apprendre les différents ascendances de progénitures qui gagnent ces titres. L’exposition nationale se déroule à Toronto and j’espère y voir plusieurs d’entre vous. L’association Charolais de l’Alberta tiendra son concours Player’s Club lors de l’exposition FarmFair à Edmonton. Ce concours

Charolais Banner • October 2019

recherche le meilleur jeune taureau ainsi que la meilleure paire de taures. Cet évènement, qui est excellent pour côtoyer d’autres éleveurs, fut un succès l’an passé et l’association espère le répéter. Si vous souhaitez agrandir votre troupeau avec des femelles d’excellente qualité, plusieurs ventes d’automne vous permettrons de le faire. D’un coté de pays à l’autre, plusieurs éleveurs offrent des sujets au sommet de la progéniture actuelle. Personne s’est trompé en achetant des sujets de qualité pour améliorer leur troupeau. En préparation des ventes de taureau du printemps prochain, consultez la section de notre calendrier d’événements. Si vous n’y trouvez pas votre annonce ou que celui-ci est erronée, veuillez nous en aviser. Si vous n’avez pas été contacté par un membre de l’association junior pour participer au calendrier 2020, veuillez nous en faire part. Le calendrier sert à amasser des fonds pour l’association des jeunes du côté national et provincial. Nous sommes en direction vers le Québec pour le début des ventes d’automne. Je vous offre, en tout temps, la collaboration de Jon Wright, Robbie Chomik ainsi que moi-même pour le montage d’une vente ou pour vous conseiller comme acheteur lors d’une vente. N’hésitez pas à nous rejoindre. À la prochaine, Helge

Craig Scott, General Manager

With summer’s end and fall’s dramatic entrance, we need to remember why we do this agriculture thing. We as members of the Canadian Charolais Association are all tasked with the promotion and genetic improvement of Canadian Charolais cattle. There are various shows and sales planned in the upcoming months across this great nation of ours. To all the exhibiting and consigning producers, we tip our hat and thank you. You do a great job promoting our breed, up and down the road. The “show” thing is not for everyone and that is okay, but your support at these events is very much appreciated to the breeders who invest a great amount of both money and time into presenting their animals and showing the resting of the industry what we have to offer. Being a spectator allows you to see firsthand some of the newest genetics available, and attending sales illustrates your commitment to the breed as well as shows your interest in other breeding establishments. One concerning comment I hear is, “I don’t need a new bull so I’m not going to the sale.” Even the simple action of showing up and sitting in the stands is a great demonstrator of support. Some of the best networking happens at these events, so be sure to take advantage of the opportunity. On every occasion that we can get a bunch of like-minded people together good things can happen. It has been four and a half months since I began the role of General Manager here at the Canadian Charolais Association, and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. We are very fortunate to have a progressive board who are committed to moving the breed forward and creating

new resources for our membership. One of the many projects we have been working hard to complete is the Homo/Polled test, and we are pleased to now offer it. If you add a Homo/Polled test to a 50K SNP test the cost is $10.00. As a stand-alone test, the cost of the Homo/Polled test is $30.00. The Leptin test is also in the works and will be offered shortly. The cost for this test will be $20.00, however if in conjunction with the 50K SNP test the cost will be $15.00. At the time of writing this article we have not received any results back on the joint evaluation pilot project that we are working on with the American International Charolais Association but expect the results very soon. I have been working along with our health care provider to explore the possibility of offering a health care plan to our membership, we hope to have more information in the very near future. The Canadian Charolais is currently accepting applications for this year’s scholarships. The CCA offers 3 scholarships annually, two $1,000.00 and one $1,500.00 Dale Norheim Memorial Scholarship. These scholarships are not limited to CCA members, if you or your family have purchased or are using a registered Charolais bull you can qualify. Please spread the word to your bull buyers to let them know this opportunity exists. We are passionate about helping our youth excel in the agriculture business and would like to extend this opportunity to all university students who are apart of our breed. The deadline for applications is October 30th, and all the information is on the CCA website: www.charolais.com. I look forward to seeing and chatting with all the breeders this fall. Craig Scott

CCA SCHOLARSHIPS Application Deadline – October 31st Two Canadian Charolais Association (CCA) Scholarships of $1,000 each and one $1500 Dale Norheim Memorial Scholarship are available Download the 2019 Scholarship Application at https://charolais.com/association/scholarships Charolais Banner • October 2019

Craig Scott, directeur général

Avec l'entrée spectaculaire de l'automne garnie une tempête de neige dans l’ouest, nous devons nous rappeler pourquoi nous pratiquons l'agriculture. En tant que membres de l’Association canadienne Charolais, nous sommes tous chargés de la promotion et de l’amélioration génétique du cheptel canadien Charolais. Il y a plusieurs expositions et ventes de prévues dans les mois à venir d’un bout à l’autre de notre pays. À tous les exposants et les consignateurs, nous vous remercions. Vous faites un excellent travail de promotion pour notre race partout où vous allez. Faire des expositions n’est pas pour tout le monde et peu importe votre choix, c’est le bon. Mais votre soutien lors de ces événements est très apprécié par ceux qui investissent beaucoup d’argent et de temps pour présenter leurs animaux et montrer au reste de l'industrie la qualité de votre génétique. Quand vous assister aux expositions, vous appuyez vos collègues tout en vous informant des génétiques courantes. La participation aux ventes illustre votre engagement envers la race et témoigne votre intérêt pour d'autres établissements d'élevage. C’est décevant d’entendre un commentaire type « je n’ai pas besoin d’animaux, donc ce n’est pas nécessaire d’assister à la vente." Le simple geste de se présenter et de s’asseoir dans les gradins est un excellent démonstrateur de soutien. La formation des meilleurs réseaux se produisent lors de ces événements, alors assurez-vous de profiter de l'occasion. Chaque fois que nous pouvons réunir un groupe de personnes partageant les mêmes idées et la même passion, de bonnes choses peuvent en dériver. Ça fait déjà quatre mois et demi que j'ai pris le poste de directeur général ici à l'Association canadienne du charolais, et je peux honnêtement dire que je m’y plais beaucoup. Nous sommes très chanceux de pouvoir compter sur un conseil d'administration progressiste, déterminé à faire progresser la race et à créer de Charolais Banner • October 2019

nouvelles ressources pour nos membres. L’un des nombreux projets pour lesquels nous avons travaillé fort, est le test Homo / Polled, et nous sommes heureux de l’offrir maintenant. Si vous ajoutez un test Homo / Polled à un test 50K SNP, le coût est de 10,00 $. Si vous demandez que le test Homo / Polled seul, le coût est de 30,00 $. Le test de la leptine est également en préparation et sera proposé sous peu. Le coût de ce test sera de 20,00$; toutefois, si vous le demandez conjointement avec le test 50K SNP, le coût sera de 15,00$. Au moment de la rédaction de cet article, nous n’avons pas encore reçu les résultats concernant le projet d’évaluation commune avec l’American International Charolais Association, mais nous attendons les résultats très bientôt. Je travaille aussi avec notre fournisseur de bénéfices sociaux pour explorer les possibilités d'offrir un régime de bénéfices à nos membres. Nous espérons avoir plus d'informations dans un avenir très proche. L’Association Charolais accepte actuellement les applications pour les bourses d’études de cette année. Nous offrons trois bourses d’études par an, deux bourses d’études commémoratives Dale Norheim de 1 000,00 $ et une de 1 500,00 $. Ces bourses ne sont pas limitées aux membres de l'ACC. Si vous ou votre famille avez acheté ou utilisez un taureau charolais enregistré, vous pouvez être admissible. S'il vous plaît passez le mot à vos acheteurs de taureaux pour leur faire savoir que cette opportunité existe. Notre passion est d'aider les jeunes à exceller dans le secteur de l'agriculture et nous souhaitons épanouir cette opportunité à tous les étudiants universitaires qui font partie de notre race. La date limite pour appliquer est le 30 octobre. Toutes les informations sont disponibles sur le site Web à: www.charolais.com. Au plaisir de vous rencontrer au court des activités de l’automne, Craig Scott

HERD HEALTH

Processing & Vaccinating Hints Roy Lewis DVM

This fall before processing your purebred or Charolais crossbred calves try to heed some of these straightforward points to make the process go smoothly and your calves get their maximal protection.  Store vaccine in the middle area of fridge, according to label, maintain chain of refrigeration. Check fridge temperature 3-7degrees and maintain it. Keep thermometer in fridge. (Don’t store vaccines in door of the fridge) Cooler to keep cool in summer warm in winter use ice packs 3-7 degrees. Do not have ice packs directly in contact with vaccine. Keep vaccine in packaging until ready to use.  Prevent vaccine from freezing or getting too hot  Prepare in advance chute and alleyway working properly, no protruding or sharp bits, sliders working properly.  Have emergency kit available stocked and labeled. (epinephrine, examethasone, antihistamine, blood stopper, wound spray etc,)  Mix only enough modified vaccine to last 1-2 hrs. tops. Best to mix just as needed.  Have a sharps container and use it. Check expiry and withdrawal dates of products before usage. Water based vaccines 21 days withdrawal. Oil based vaccines 60 days slaughter withdrawal.  Swirl vaccine when rehydrate don’t shake vigorously.  Agitate killed vaccine to have a uniform mixture (I.E. clostridial vaccines)  Select appropriate needle size. 1618-19-20 depending on size and maturity of cattle and viscosity of product. As short as can to get under the skin for sc administration.  Syringes well maintained and cleaned (hot water) store in fridge or freezer after vaccinating for the day. One drop of glycerin or cooking canola oil placed on the rubber o ring maintains sliding motion easily. 14

 Callibrate syringes to make sure dispensing right amount. E.g. At 2cc a dose after 12 head a 50 cc syringe should be half gone.  Oil based vaccines use syringes designed for that.  YOU PAID GOOD MONEY FOR VACCINES & other products. LOOK AFTER THEM  Change needles every 10-20 head or when bent, burred, dirty or dull.  Inject subcutaneously wherever possible neck preferable behind elbow second choice or for show cattle  Checked dosage of vaccines, syringes calibrated some selfcalibrated. i.e. mistake using draxxin with a zuprevo gun and vice versa.  Properly restrain cattle  Minimize shots often no more than two will cover all the antigens  Give at least a handbreadth apart with vaccines (high low or across from each other or alternative site) other side of neck preferable.  When in chute do as much as HUMANLY OR HUMANELY POSSIBLE to avoid another passage through the chute, as long as timing is appropriate.  Weigh, BCS, fecal testing, other sampling, hair for DNA. NSAIDs may be used if appropriate. Do whatever you can in each pass through the chute.  Intranasal vaccines proper cannula and use oral products to avoid needles  Don’t mix syringes up – label syringe for which product. IE Colored tape or write on the syringe.  Observe needle still on gun when you withdraw, if broken needle record. (VBP+) Always use needles with metal hubs.  Discard unused doses of vaccine  Antibiotics no more than 10 cc per site  Don’t disinfect the vaccine needle  Use vaccines with as low a dose as possible  Make sure and go SC as possibility of giving vaccine into a muscle and hitting an arteriole giving an allergic reaction so watch these things Charolais Banner • October 2019

 Don’t disinfect vaccination needles between animals. Only disinfect implant needles between uses.  Make sure and agitate killed vaccines especially clostridial ones before using & same with products like safeguard suspension dewormer.  If in doubt they got the full dose for any reason (vaccine on hide) repeat  Use the one-handed subcutaneous technique where ever possible to avoid hand or arm injuries. One vaccine gun in each hand if giving two shots.  Always catch for proper restraint. (safer for administrator and cattle)  Use paddles flags or rattles at most for sorting – no whips, canes or prods.  Try to avoid vaccinating in the rain (potential for abscesses) or with branding-scalding.  Double and triple check the dosage i.e. Clostridials depending on the brand come in 2cc-5cc dosage. Critical to get the proper dosage.  Try to use vaccines that have the lowest dosage.  With all products read and follow label directions. Recheck label especially if you change trade names of products. Double check dosage route of administration and any warning signs or precautions or contraindications.  The labels are in fine print but deserve a review from time to time.  If an animal escapes have a process to rerun to vaccinate.  We are vaccinating to establish herd immunity certain individual animals because of biological variation stress etc may not develop complete protection.  Take the time to properly train new vaccinators and processors on your ranch farm or feedlot. It is the most critical job as far as disease prevention is concerned. Following all these recommendations will go a long ways to maintaining healthier cattle with good protection against the diseases for which you are vaccinating.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS

Charolais Charbray International AGM The Charolais Charbray International Annual General Meeting was held in conjunction with the Charolais World Technical Congress in Ireland in August. Eleven countries were represented. The financial report showed a deficit of 7,511.08 Euros, which was primarily due to the inception of the International Youth Program. The cash reserve is 86,297.54 Euros. Membership has shown some growth and there are some pending requests which require follow-up. The website has been updated as regularly as information has been provided to the secretary. Everyone was reminded to forward their information. Helge By, Canada, reported on the second International Youth Program. It was considered a success with nine youth attending from Hungary, Estonia, Australia, New Zealand, United States and Ireland. All youth participated in all the events at the Canadian Charolais Youth Conference. They also toured six breeders’ herds and some tourist attractions. David Hobbs reported the United States will host the program in 2020 in Brookings, South Dakota, probably

July 3-12. They will tentatively fly to Kansas City, Missouri, and travel to South Dakota doing herd visits along the way. The age will be 18-22 and he would like countries to declare their intent to attend at the next quarterly meeting so proper arrangements can be made. The 2021 International Youth Program will be held in Australia. The Genomics Subcommittee has not met since September. Colin Rex, Australia, was appointed the new chairperson. There will be a meeting in late September or early October. The 2020 World Congress will start in Brisbane and end in Sydney, Australia. There will be pre and post Congress tours offered. All itinerary and registration information will be posted on charolaisinternational.com as soon as available. The 2021 World Technical Conference will be in Czech Republic in April. It will include the National Show in Brno, farm visits and tourist visits and the city of Prague. The post tour will include Bratislava (Slovakia), Vienna (Austria) and Budapest (Hungary). The 2022 World Congress will be in the United Kingdom and is tentatively

set for July 7-17, starting in London and ending in Belfast. It will include visits to England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The 2023 World Technical Conference location is yet to be determined. France and New Zealand are considering this opportunity. Brendan Scheiwe, Australia, was elected as the new President. Vice Presidents are Kamil Malat, Czech Republic and Dominique Loulergue, France. Cécile Lainé, France, will continue as treasurer and Candace By, Canada, will continue as secretary.

INTERNATIONAL

Charolais Charbray International Youth Program

Charolais International Youth Delegates received a welcome gift from the Canadian Charolais Association. L-R: Sarah Nesbitt, Australia; István (Stevie) Gosztola, Hungary; Kaitlyn Davlin, United States; Heather Gee-Taylor, New Zealand; Keiro Peeter Kottisse, Estonia; Emma Owen, New Zealand; Markus Ylikangas, Estonia; Sarah Armstrong, Ireland; Cathal Gormley, Ireland; Darwin Rosso, CCA Past-President, Moose Jaw; Craig Scott, CCA General Manager, Olds, AB

The planning for the second International Youth Program changed after last year’s event. Due to the severe drought in Australia, they decided to withdraw from hosting. As the United States was already committed for 2020 and other countries had projects on the go for this year, Helge and Candace By opted to host it again in Canada. The youth gathered in Regina on Monday, July 22nd, from Hungary, Australia, New Zealand, Estonia, Ireland and the United States. Tuesday they spent a day walking off the travel cramps and adjusting to the time zone. They toured the city, the Legislative Building, Royal Saskatchewan National History Museum, RCMP Heritage Centre and went 5 Pin Bowling. It seems odd, but none of these guests had ever played 5 Pin. They only have seen or played 10 Pin.

Wednesday they arrived at CCYA and got introduced to their herdsman groups and started with the events of the week. They participated in every activity and for some of the group, they experienced many first. Some had never participated in a cattle show or showmanship competition. Many had never been in a meat packing facility and seeing the steers they judged at the start of the week was an exceptional experience. Even participants coming from established youth programs found the variety of opportunities to judge cattle in the Canadian Conference was more varied. Following the CCYA Conference and Show, they participants had an opportunity to tour Beck Farms, Elder Charolais, Rosso Charolais, Howe Family Farm, Horseshoe E Charolais and Palmer Charolais. They enjoyed The Chicago Connection Tunnels

of Moose Jaw tour and an evening at the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa. The Buffalo Plains Feedlot, with strong emphasis on calm cattle handling, nutrition and wellness, was a highlight. The nine youth returned to their respective countries with new friends, new ideas and a pledge to return to Canada in the future. Helge and I would like to thank the operations that welcomed these young people for tours, prepared food and answered their questions. We would also like to thank the CCYA participants and organizers for including them and making them feel welcome. Lastly, we would like to thank the international participants for being a great group. We look forward to seeing you in your home. Each of the participants shared some of their highlights: continued on page 22

Kaitlyn Davlin, United States I really enjoyed learning new things about the Canadian youth association, how they run their Conference and see how the kids are so involved. It really is a youth event with very little adult involvement. I also really enjoyed getting to tour the farms and see everyone’s different type of cattle. What I will take home is the realization of the differences between the American and Canadian cattle. I also appreciated learning about some different bloodlines this week that some really great ranches have utilized that I would like to utilize in my program. The International Program is very important because we need to be open to learning new things and this program is an opportunity to do that. Especially for people that came from really far away. I know they have been enlightened to different types of cattle and I hope I can travel to their countries someday to see their cattle. István Gosztola, Hungary I liked everything about this trip. CCYA was a definite highlight. I really enjoyed Team Marketing with Sarah Nesbitt, from Australia, and Team Grooming with Cathal Gormley and Sarah Armstrong, both from Ireland. I will take home everything from this trip, the CCYA experience was all new and different for me. The international program is very valuable. Cathal Gormley, Ireland The herd visits were really great to see and Buffalo Plains feedlot was also wonderful. How the Charolais have adapted to a different 22

climate in this region is really something. They are structurally correct and are completely different from what is at home, which is a more muscled breed. I really like how the breeders are breeding for calving ease, which is what the commercial man wants. The pedigree breeders have adapted to that when purchasing their bulls as well. I really liked how enthusiastic they were in the feedlot, how they mind their cattle and that they are so concentrated on their data and their tags for tracability in the feedlot. I am definitely going to take some things from the youth program home. I thought it was a very friendly program. Definitely last year, the Irish representatives took ideas home. Michael (who works for the Irish Charolais Society) established a program with similarity to CCYA but I would like to take some other ideas home to improve our program and develop the youth in Ireland. The International program was wonderful, I have made 8 new international friends and many very friendly Canadians. I saw a different part of the world where they are breeding different cattle than I am and making it work for their customers. I enjoyed seeing the tourist attractions and the countryside where it is so flat in some parts and then hilly in other parts. I also see how the climate is similar to Ireland in some ways and very different in others and the cattle have to adapt. Emma Owen, New Zealand I really liked the CCYA show culture where all of the kids worked together. I really liked the herd tours and appreciated the principles behind the programs. I would like to take home the values behind the youth show. Heather and I would like to implement something like it in New Zealand and change the systems for our youth. The International Program is a great way to network with the other International youth and Canadians. Everyone has a different type of cattle to suit their country, it Charolais Banner • October 2019

was really interesting to see what other people liked, why they liked them and what works in their part of the world. Thank you for everything. Sarah Nesbitt, Australia I enjoyed CCYA the most and the involvement of all the youth, how they work together in herdsman groups and how it was run very hands on. I really enjoyed the Keep and Cull event. I thought is was very interesting, not only for the seniors, but also for the youth. It was good to understand what people are looking for in the industry. There was no right or wrong answer and it was your preference in the stock and how you explained it. The International Program is a very good experience and I have enjoyed it a lot and learned it a lot. It was great to come here and meet like minded individuals that share our passion for the Charolais industry. It was good to have a look at their programs and see how different, but alike we are in the breed, to see what they are breeding towards and how the industry works in Canada. Sarah Armstrong, Ireland My favourite part was getting to judge the steers and placing them how we thought they graded best. Then we actually got to see the steers hanging up. It was definitely something we would never see at home, we would never be allowed in the factory. Seeing them in the flesh alive and then dead and we could actually see where we graded them down, we could see that we were right. I will definitely take home some management pratises. Here you are very exact about calving at 24 months. At home we do that it but it isn’t emphasized like here. I will consider bringing it from 27 or 28 months to 24 at our farm to get that extra calf when they are younger and continued on page 24

obviously more or a profit. I thought the International program was really well run and we were all involved in our groups, they really took us under their wing. The younger kids really thought it was interesting that we were from a different country and were always asking us what it was like in our home and how it was different from them. I enjoyed seeing all of the different farms, and how everybody is different here. Not everyone is painted with the same brush over here with livestock and they all have there own systems. It was good to see people developing their own program instead of everyone using the same genetics. It was really good and thank you for having me. Markus Ylikangas, Estonia I loved the last ten days. I learned so many new things, like fitting and showmanship. I have been at shows before but I have not ever participated in a show before. It was a really great experience for me. I learned something new every single minute. The positivity of Canadians was wonderful. In the International

program you meet people from all over the world and see how they manage their cows and breed their cattle. It is so different and there was so much to learn. I would really like to thank the Canadians and CCYA and Helge and Candace for having us. Keiro Peeter Kottisse, Estonia I liked the judging the competitions very much. I learned very much about the breeding programs here. It is going to help my family business back in Estonia. The International program was very much fun for me and I would recommend that anyone that has the opportunity should participate. Heather Gee-Taylor, New Zealand CCYA is a fantastic event that nothing in NZ even comes close to rivaling. I really appreciate how much passion your young people have for their cattle and the industry. New Zealand is really

lacking in passionate young beef breeders so it was refreshing to see such knowledge from all the youth at CCYA. I think the steer judging carcass was also a fantastic educational part of CCYA. In NZ we have quite a bit to do with prime cattle, however, I had never seen one from in the flesh to a dressed carcass. CCYA was my first ever cow show and gave me some great aspirations. Since returning home I have started to break in a yearling bull calf of mine to show later in the year. I think this is a fantastic way to get my stud name out there and also meet other Charolais breeders. Canada has some very good genetics and I look forward to my crop of calves to Braxton and Honcho hitting the ground after seeing their offspring on the tour. Big thank you to you, Candace and Helge. I think the tour covered off a great mixture of touristy things (caves and temple spa were very cool) and CCYA and stud visits. Your breeders are very passionate and the cattle were all done extremely well. The feedlot was another highlight, I enjoyed seeing the variation from cows on pasture to feedlot intensive systems – makes me appreciate our year round grass system we have here!

T

he 2019 World Charolais Technical Conference was held in Ireland from August 4th to 11th. The Irish Charolais Cattle Society did a great job in all aspects of the Conference. Showing off their beautiful country, presenting some great technical seminars and tours, getting us through some of their top herds, watching their National show, including some entertaining tourist stops – it was excellent! A Technical Conference compared to a Congress is shorter and has more business and seminar events than a Congress. There were 62 delegates from 10 countries outside of Ireland including ten from Canada. Throughout the week there were many Irish Charolais breeders that joined in on segments of the Conference giving delegates more opportunity to visit with a vast array of farmers. The Conference started with everyone flying into Dublin and staying in the beautiful coastal suburb of Malahide. We were three nights in the Grand Hotel and bused from there each day to our stops. The first night was a meet and greet where it was 32

time to meet the hosts and visit with fellow Charolais breeders from around the world. The first day started with a walk around the beautiful Powerscourt Gardens which was voted No. 3 in the World by National Geographic. It was good for many to walk off the long plane rides and it was a beautiful day We found it interesting that pet

cemeteries were a thing amongst the wealthy, as we saw several of them around Europe. The one here, besides dogs and horses, featured a couple of their favorite cows. Weatherby’s Scientific’s facilities was the next stop and we were given a tour of the laboratory and an overview of this business which has continued on page 34

been family owned since 1770 and been involved in Parentage Testing since 1985. Today they are one of Europe’s premier facilities doing Genomic Testing, parentage Verification, SNP Parentage Verification, Pedigree Scanning, Breed Assignment, and Genetic Disease and Major Gene testing in Bovine animals for many cattle herd books around the world. Skidoo Pedigree Charolais is a premier herd on the outskirts of Dublin. They announced the dispersal of the herd on September 14th, and as a result a large group of Irish breeders took part in this portion of the tour to get a pre-sale view of this top herd of 100 plus purebred females and 160 commercial cows. The day ended in a traditional Irish pub with song and dance performed by some very talented musicians and dancers. We enjoyed Irish stew and jovial hospitality.

Amazing views

The next morning was spent at the Teagasc Grange Research Centre. We had three presentations covering agriculture in Ireland, the role of Charolais and the Research centre. We were also able to tour their 570-acre farm where they conduct research in surroundings as similar to how the farming community operates as possible. Ireland has a total land area of 17 million acres, of which 11 million acres is farmland and of that, about 69% is grass land. There are 140,000 farm holdings with the average farm size being 80 acres and the average beef herd being 17 cows. Over 90% of all beef and dairy products produced go to export with England being their biggest market. Brexit has caused them much uncertainty as to the future of that market. Limousin is the number one beef bred in Ireland with Charolais number two. Calving ease seems to be the reason that the

Limousin breed is ahead of the Charolais and Angus is the most used AI sire on the dairy cows. The beef price in Ireland is very low by their standards and the trend is switching to dairy. At present there are about 1 million beef cows and 1.4 million dairy cows with some predicting the beef numbers could drop to 500,000 beef cows and push the dairy cow numbers up by that much. Ireland has the longest growing season in the Northern Hemisphere and because of the gulf stream they have a mild climate with plenty of rain which gives them a sustainable, grass based production system. Most animals are finished on grass, with the steers finishing at 28 months and the heifers at 25 months. They like larger animals, and many are calving at 36 months although some are aiming at 30 months and some even trying to do it at 24 months. continued on page 36 Tombstone for a 17-year old Jersey cow and 11-year old Champion Angus cow in a pet cemetery

Sample of the quality at Skidoo

Because of the smaller herd size, it is hard to get top dollars for breeding bulls but the strive for top quality is not diminished. The tour of the Research Centre showed us the work they are doing on different projects. They have 1200 head of cattle and can house that many indoors for the winter. They have 90 on staff and do research on Genetics and Breeds, Animal Reproduction, Nutrition and Feeding, Forage Conservation, Grassland, Animal Welfare and Health, Beef Quality, Beef Systems and Computational Biology. Some of the projects seem somewhat redundant, as they have been completed in other parts of the world before, but the research grants keep everyone going. Lunch was served followed by some free time at the Guiness Storehouse in Dublin. This is an incredible seven story facility showing the Guiness story from beginnings, to

how they brew their beer, to sampling areas, souvenir shops, restaurant, night clubs, to roof top bar. The afternoon allowed us to spend some time in downtown Dublin before supper and evening entertainment of the famous “Riverdance”. This was spectacular! Day three started at the Kepak Feedlot. This 1,500 head lot is owned by a packing plant, so they finish predominately bulls for slaughter. There are 60 to 80 head/week in and out, so they feed 3,500 to 4,000 each year. They have four products in their ration which include distillery maize, grass sileage, corn sileage and beet pulp. It is interesting to note, the morning we were there, farmers were protesting in front of the packing plant that owns this facility to draw attention to the low prices they are getting paid for their finished animals. The next stop was the Tully Test Performance Centre which is the Irish

Cattle Breeding Federation’s progeny performance test station. Each year 500 young animals are purchased from breeding farms and tested for numerous efficiencies. The animals are fed to slaughter with the bulls being shipped at 15 to 18 months, steers at 17 to 23 months and heifers at 15 to 20 months. Besides Residual Feed Intake trials, they are doing methane gas research, rumen research and are gathering data on the eating quality of the meat, to develop an index. Lunch was at the National Stud and Japanese Gardens. The National Stud is a nationally owned facility breeding top quality racehorses with some of the top stallions in Ireland. The tour of this sprawling facility was well done. The Japanese garden is an immaculately kept space featuring some unique plants from Japan.

by president Kevin Maguire. Reports on the Charolais International Youth Program, Genomic Subcommittee and updates on the upcoming Congresses and Conferences were given with discussion on topics for the future. Elections of the new executive were held with Brendan Scheiwe, from Australia elected the new president. The rest of the morning and afternoon was information packed with the top geneticists from the Irish Cattle Breeding Federation giving very informative presentations on who and what the ICBF is and what they are doing. It amazes me when DNA testing has taken the industry from the basic parentage verification to the extensive gene marking for abnormalities and ways of increasing profitability with this information. This was followed by presentations from the attending countries on where they are with genomic testing and what is currently important to their members and pedigree herdbook. It is interesting that some countries like the British Charolais, Irish Charolais, Mexican Charolais-Charbray are testing for Myostatins. Some are looking for positives and some are negative Myostatins. The positives are to identify calving ease and increased meat yields while also testing to remove the myostatin for double muscling in their populations. Because of the decades of selection criteria for calving ease and fertility in Canada, the need to test for these negative myostatins is not necessary. We feel the incidence of these in our population is negligible. Australian breeders are doing more testing for Homozygous polled animals with more than 1,350 tested in the last three years identifying 581 as Homo polled. The question was also asked about the liability of breeders who sell an animal with the wrong pedigree. In Australia, an Angus breeder was ordered to pay more than $200,000 after selling an animal with an incorrect pedigree. More parentage verifying is now being done before sales or right after on bulls going into pedigree herds. It is not an issue here with all walking bulls being parentage verified, but it is interesting how things around the world shift due to circumstances. The delegates that did not participate in the Technical Conference had the opportunity to tour Kilkenny, in the heart of Ireland’s Medieval capital. continued on page 40

The evening saw us travel to the Knockmahon herd in County Kilkenny. This is a top-quality herd not only with the pedigree Charolais cattle winning in the show ring, but the commercial herd consistently wins best pen of Charolais weanlings in the Kilkenny Mart for the past number of years. Following the tour of the impressive set of cattle a barbeque was held in their barn and was followed with a barn dance with live music. It was a fun evening of laughter, dancing and visiting. The famous Coolmore Stud farm considered to be the world’s biggest and best thoroughbred racehorse breeding operation was a highlight for many. It is an immaculate, impressive operation. It is an incredible example of how having a couple of top breeding and racing stallions can take you to the top and beyond. They now have farms near Lexington, Kentucky, in the U.S.A and in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. Because of the different breeding seasons, they had just sent 25 stallions to Australia for mating there before bringing them back to Ireland for next spring.

INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

Collaboration across the beef industry will be an important aspect that determines whether or not the industry will remain viable for the next generation. The various sectors of the beef industry have traditionally operated independent of the next link in the chain, primarily through buy and sell transactions. Since 2003, we have lost more than a million head of cattle from the national beef herd. Our farmers and ranchers are getting older and are not being replaced through farm succession at the same rate they are leaving. Since 2014 the price signals have indicated that the herd should be expanding, but it hasn’t, in fact it has decreased as our older farmers and ranchers are using it along with high land prices as the exit (retirement) strategy or shifting land use to grow more crops. This indicates that there needs to be change in the structure of the industry from the grass roots farmers and ranchers through to the industry associations. The beef industry has lagged behind other agriculture in adopting new technology, but we are now at a point where the cost to use various technologies on beef operations is

feasible. New technology doesn’t always mean a physical hardware. It can be systems and software programing that use existing hardware. Data flow and information sharing is an evolving and important avenue that will allow for enhanced collaboration. Various technology platform development will be driven by both industry associations and private enterprise, with input from producers. The additional information will provide producers a new tool that allows them to make operational decisions that are precise and create efficiencies leading to increased profits and save valuable time. Information transfer and analytics on animals, crop production, and other types of production will become more common. Systems are designed so they can work together in networks, where each partner benefits. There will be minimal additional work required by producers as most of this data will be recorded automatically and uploaded to the network (with producer approval). Collaboration through a systems approach is one factor of many, that will help the beef industry to remain relevant and profitable into the future. The Canadian beef breed

associations have collaborated on various projects for 25 years through CBBC. This has generally been on international marketing initiatives but more recently on genetic improvement programs. However, there is always room for improvement, and we know we can do better. The breeds associations through CBBC have been working with other national industry organizations such as the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, National Cattle Feeders, Canada Beef, BCRC, Canadian Meat Council and the Canadian Round Table for Sustainable beef on the 2020-2024 National Beef Strategy which will be released this fall. The strategy identifies the importance of genetic improvement to the beef industry, and the gains that can be made to our national cow herd. Considerable resources have been dedicated to developing the Canadian Beef Innovation Network (CBIN) which will be the platform for collaboration across the Canadian beef industry for genetic improvement. It will build upon the work currently done by the breed associations and tie in data from commercial cattle, feedlots and the packers. This is an exciting new opportunity and we will keep you posted on progress.

distilled whiskey. We enjoyed the Irish scenery as we ventured to Athlone and prepared for a cruise to the Wineport Lodge, where we dined in the finest setting. Saturday morning saw a two-hour bus ride to the west coast of Ireland to the Bostonia Pedigree and

Commercial Charolais herd on the banks of the Atlantic Ocean. This beautiful setting with quality cattle, was enjoyed along with a weight guessing contest and lunch in their extravagant barn. On the way back to Athlone, we stopped at Cathal Gill’s commercial operation. The liquid

sunshine poured down on us, and did shorten our tour of this operation that grass finishes some top quality Charolais steers every year. It was interesting to see the meat and structure of what they are producing in their commercial herds. The final day we attended the Irish continued on page 44

More great background music at the final gala dinner

National Charolais Show held at the Tullamore National Livestock Show. This is the largest one day show in Ireland which attracts the best cattle, sheep and equine breeders. The show averages 60,000 visitors with 700 Trade Stands from Agri Sectors, Home Industry, Farm Produce, Innovation, Forestry and Agri Machinery. Nearly 100 Charolais animals were paraded with one judge sorting the bulls and another judge in another ring sorting the females. The way they fit their animals and their selection criteria

were very interesting. One thing we have found travelling the world is that cattlemen will produce the type of cattle they feel are the most profitable for them, and in a couple of generations, you can really change the style of the animal. The other thing is that when you get into the herds there are some animals that will work anywhere in the world and a country’s cattle cannot be judged by their show strings. Charolais have proven to be a very adaptable breed and can meet the industry standards required in many countries. The final evening included the gala dinner back at the hotel with attending countries making presentations to the hosts for a tremendous, excellently organized and informative event. The Irish hospitality was superb, their country is beautiful, and they have top quality Charolais cattle with a definite place in the cattle industry there.

ASSOCIATION NEWS

Manitoba Charolais AGM The Manitoba Charolais Association’s 52nd Annual General Meeting was hosted by Sunblade Charolais, Tyler and Nicki Stewart, at the Birtle Ag Society Grounds on Saturday, August 3rd. 21 members of the Manitoba Charolais Association attended the meeting on this scorching hot day. All members and guests were treated to a pen show and enjoyed the hospitality offered by the hosts. Jeff Cavers, of La Riviere, was elected President of the Manitoba Charolais Association. Hans Myhre, Dauphin, was elected 1st Vice President and Michael Hunter, Roblin, was elected to fill the roll of 2nd Vice President. Rae Trimble-Olsen, Portage La Prairie, will remain the SecretaryTreasurer for the board. Bert McDonald, Brookdale, and Merv Nykoliation, Lenore, were newly elected to the Board of Directors. Matthew Ramsey, Strathclair was re-elected. They join Erin Jackson, Inglis; Kevin Stebeleski, Oakburn; Scott Johnston, Rathwell; Tyler Stewart, Foxwarren; Shawn Airey, Rivers and Jim Olson, Portage La Prairie, to complete the MCA Board. Brad Cline, Belmont, and Andre Steppler, Miami, retired from the board.

At the year end of 2018, the financial report showed assets of just over $16,000, total revenue of $29,637, and total expenses for the year of $28,597, resulting in a slight revenue over expenses of $1,040. The Manitoba Charolais Bulletin, the semi-annual publication put out by the MCA, was the largest expenditure, followed by sponsorship. There were 63 water pails awarded to 4-H members in Manitoba in 2018 who exhibited a Charolais or Charcross animal. The 2018 MCA scholarship was awarded to Nathan Olmstead. Craig Scott, General Manager of the Canadian Charolais Association, was in attendance and gave an update on the CCA. Attendees of the meeting were given the opportunity to view the cattle in the pen show, with Cam and Kaitlin Nykoliation judging the show. They were tasked with evaluating bred heifers, purebred and commercial cow/calf pairs and bull calves. Top pens were awarded prior to the start of supper. Also awarded at the meeting was Purebred Breeder of the Year and Commercial Producer of the Year, which was voted on earlier in the day. Receiving the honour of Breeder of the Year was Sunblade Charolais,

Tyler and Nicki Stewart. Commercial Producer of the Year was awarded to Darcy and Barb Kozack, of Shoal Lake. To conclude the day, a supper and evening of visiting with fellow cattlemen and friends wrapped up the meeting for another year.

OBITUARY

Max Voegeli 1932-2019

Max Voegeli passed away on August 25, 2019, at the age of 87. He was still actively helping out in any way he could. Max along with his brother, Norman, and sister-in-law, Dorothy, were the founders of Voegeli Bros. Charolais. They became Lifetime Members of the Canadian Charolais Association in 1976. He was known as Uncle Max to many of you. He was our truck driver to get us to the many shows where we exhibited, then once there, he became our ‘PR person’. As the PR person he was involved in many ‘safety meetings’ – these usually started at night chores and lasted past tie out and bed making. If they happened sooner he and some of his Charolais friends could be found in the feed alley swapping stories. A couple of the ‘crown royal’ highlights for Max was winning Canadian National

Champion Female in 1992 and 1995. We were members of the Hub Breeders Club. Along with selling in the Hub Sale we also sold females in the Northwest Treasure Chest Sale and the Sterling Collection. The bulls were sold in the Basic Bull Sale, Last Chance Bull Sale and the Lloydminster Bull Sale. Max spent many hours visiting with fellow breeders, which is what he enjoyed most. He dispersed his commercial herd in 2017. Another one of his favorite outings were the bred cow sales at SLS, he made a point to go regardless of what the weather was like. We think he first started going to these sales to bug us because you never knew if he was going to come home with some new purchases. Max may have been a bachelor but he was never short of female opinions. He had his sister-in-law, along with four nieces to try to keep him in line, which wasn’t always that easy. Max along with our dad, Norman, gave us

our start in the cattle business. They let us have pick of the steer calves to use as our 4-H steers and also bought heifer calves for us to use in 4-H. We all still have a connection to the Charolais breed in one form or another. As I am writing this it brings back many memories (too many to mention) but one thing is certain, Max was a believer in the Charolais breed. Max leaves to mourn his passing a brother Allen (Lorraine), sister-in-law Dorothy, nieces Audrey Seib (Richard) and their daughter Stephanie McIntosh (Blair) along with their boys Seth and Carter; Darlene Voegeli; Debbie Payne (Rocky); Lissa Serhienko (Dennis) and their girls Katie and Cassidy. Max was predeceased by his brother Norman in 2015. In closing, one thing I have learned since Max’s passing is never take for granted what past generations do for you. ~ Submitted by Darlene Voegeli

OBITUARY

Gene Foat 1945-2019

Gene Foat passed away in the Foothills hospital on September 25, 2019 due to complications from a farming accident. He grew up on a mixed farm in the Cremona area and loved the farming lifestyle growing up. He was active with cattle but all things mechanical really captivated him. He earned his Automotive Mechanics license in Calgary and his Heavy-Duty Mechanc license in Edmonton and worked for a few companies. His last mechanical job was constructing a dam in Newfoundland where he left the ends of 2 fingers under an end dump scraper. That was enough for him and he changed course to return to

farming. Gene went farming with his brothers Irvine and Roy. They had a mixed farm with cattle, hay and grain. Gene married Joan Kramer in 1974 and they had two boys. Gene raised purebred Shorthorns until he and son Mike got into Charolais in 2003, when they bought the Brisco Charolais herd. Foat Charolais dispersed in 2016. One of Gene’s passions was in bettering the lives of young people. He employed his nephews and many other students from the nearby Cremona School. After he started his partnership with his brother, Irvine, they began to employ Agricultural Trainees. Over the course of his farming life he employed 29 different trainees from different countries who were always treated like a part of the family. Gene was active in the Charolais Banner • October 2019

Cremona 4-H club where he acted as beef leader. He was the President of the Ag Society during the fundraising and building process of the Cremona Arena. He didn’t want his sons to have to push snow off the outdoor rink like he had to. Gene was a farmer right up to the end. He eased back and was only feeding 30 cows, but it got him out of the house every day. Unfortunately, he had a run in with a cow while tagging her calf as he couldn’t quite move like he used to. Gene will be missed by his wife Joan and two sons. Mike (Heather) and sons Jacob, Isaac, and Thomas. Phil (Michelle) and daughters Kyra and Kenzie. He is survived by his brother Irvine and his sisters Irma and Dwila as well as numerous nieces and nephews. 55

CANADIAN CHAROLAIS YOUTH ASSOCIATION NEWS

CCYA 2019 Highlights Haley Rosso, Secretary

The Canadian Charolais Youth Association Conference and Show “Whiteout in Weyburn” was once again a highlight of this past summer. This year’s conference brought together 111 junior participants from near and far to the Weyburn Ag Society from July 24-27. We once again hosted the Charolais International Youth Program, where we welcomed 9 International senior members from Australia, Estonia, Ireland, Hungary, New Zealand and the United States. These members competed in their own category in all our regular CCYA events, which CCYA NATIONAL BOARD charolaisyouth@gmail.com President: Keegan Blehm keegb34@yahoo.ca Vice-President: Reegan McLeod Reeganmc11@gmail.com Treasurer: Tyson Black blackbern@hotmail.com Secretary: Haley Rosso hrosso25@gmail.com

allowed them to learn how these events are done in Canada, but it also gave us Canadians the opportunity to see some differences in showing and fitting techniques around the world. This year the planning committee switched up the schedule a bit. We started the conference with judging of three classes; market steer, bull calf and yearling heifers. Once the competition was concluded, the steers were sent to Western Prime Meat Processors to be butchered. On Friday the 26th, we attended Western Prime to evaluate the carcasses of the steers we had judged on the first day. This opportunity showed us the finished product of our efforts to

produce market animals, and what factors are most important to do this efficiently. Instead of the mixer, this year we had “Barnyard Olympics”, which was another highlight of the week, and even included an all parent team. It was a week for the books in all aspects, and I know many members are excited for the 2020 Conference in Alberta. For more information on CCYA and our programs make sure to check out our website at youth.charolais.com or find us on Facebook and Twitter @charolaisyouth!
