POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

This issue is somewhat dedicated to the youth of the Charolais breed. There is extensive coverage of the CCYA Conference and Show, which was held in Renfrew, Ontario, at the end of July; as well as a feature article about the Charolais Charbray International Youth Program that was hosted by the USA this year. We are very passionate about supporting the youth, and as you can see with the number of 2nd Generation CCYA members that have participated over the past number of years, it is working. Giving the youth participation opportunities in the breed and exposing them to other young people with similar interests is the surest way to keep them involved in the breed and make them better breeders. It also gives them lifelong friends wherever they end up in life. I am writing this near the end of September and the fall calf run is just starting. As usual, the heavy calves are commanding some very good money. Here are some early results and, as one breeder suggested, at this time of year, performance definitely pays more than calving ease. Here are some samples from my Twitter account this fall: • End of August in Ontario 23 679 lb Charolais steers $2.99 = $2,030/hd • 3rd week of September in

Northern Ontario 907 lb Charcross steers $2.19=$1,986/hd • 3rd week of September in Ontario 10 681 lb Charolais steers $2.74 =$1,866/hd • 4th week of September in Alberta 733 lb Charcross steers $2.61/lb =$1,913/hd • The yearling market was very strong as well with many $2,200 steers coming off grass at around 1,000 pounds. • 3rd week of September in Manitoba D1 & D2 cows selling well over $1 and bulls at $1.25 to $1.45. The market is strong to clean up the open cows or cows that are past their best before date. I repeat myself, but take some time to sit in the auction market when your bull customers sell their calves and cheer them on. We expect them to be at our sales next spring, so show that you are interested in how the bulls are working for them and what they are receiving for their calves. The National Show and Sale is at the Toronto Royal this year and will include the Player’s Club Charolais Bull Calf Futurity. If you have never been to the Royal, give it a go this year. Finally, Covid restrictions are lifted so it should be hassle free travel for everyone in Canada and abroad. I know you will enjoy the show and the breeders will surely appreciate it. 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 it corrected in the 2023 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 Youth Association, again please contact us. If Robbie Chomik or I can be of any assistance in your sale participation this fall, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. Marketing Tip Register your bull calves now, not in January when you find that you are missing DNA, or are running on lack of sleep calving. If you are going to do 100K, Homo Polled or Leptin testing, pull hair and do it early so all the information is back before you want to start building your bull sale catalogue. Until next time, Helge

If you have a spring bull sale, check the Calendar of Events to make sure your sale date is there and is correct. If not, please let us know.

DES POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Ce numéro est en quelque sorte consacré à la jeunesse de la race charolaise. Il y a une couverture étendue de la conférence CCYA qui a eu lieu à Renfrew, en Ontario à la fin juillet; ainsi qu’un article de fond sur le programme international des jeunes Charolais-Charbray qui a été accueilli par les États-Unis cette année. Nous sommes très passionnés à supporter les jeunes et comme vous pouvez le voir avec le nombre de membres CCYA de 2ème génération qui ont participé au cours des dernières années, cela fonctionne. Donner aux jeunes des opportunités de participation commune à la race et les exposer à d’autres jeunes ayant des intérêts similaires est le moyen le plus sûr de les maintenir impliqués dans la race et d’en faire de meilleurs éleveurs. Cela leur donne également des amis pour la vie, peu importe où qu’ils se retrouvent plus tard. J’écris ceci vers la fin septembre et la course des veaux d’automne ne fait que commencer. Comme d’habitude, les veaux lourds commandent de très bons revenus. Voici quelques premiers résultats et comme l’a suggéré un éleveur, à cette période de l’année, la performance paie définitivement plus que la facilité de vêlage. Voici quelques échantillons de mon compte Twitter cet automne: •F in août en Ontario, 23 bouvillons Charolais de 679 lb à 2,99 $ = 2,030 $/tête •T roisième semaine de septembre dans le nord de l’Ontario,

Dans nos champs bouvillons Charcross de 907 lb à 2,19 $ = 1,986 $/tête •T roisième semaine de septembre en Ontario, 10 bouvillons Charolais de 681 lb à 2,74$ = 1,866 $/tête •L e marché des bouvillons d’un an était également très fort avec de nombreux bouvillons à 2,200 $ sortant du champ à environ 1,000 livres. •T roisième semaine de septembre au Manitoba, les vaches D1 et D2 se vendent bien au-dessus du dollar et taureaux de 1,25 $ à 1,45 $. Le marché est fort pour nettoyer les vaches ouvertes ou les vaches qui ont dépassé leur date de péremption. Je me répète mais prenez le temps de vous asseoir à l’encan lorsque vos acheteurs de taureaux vendent leurs veaux et encouragez-les. Nous nous attendons à ce qu’ils soient à nos ventes du printemps prochain, alors montrez que vous êtes intéressé par la façon dont les taureaux travaillent pour eux et ce qu’ils reçoivent pour leurs veaux. L’exposition et la vente Nationale se déroulent cette année à l’exposition Royal de Toronto et comprendront le concours d’avenir de jeunes taureaux Charolais Player’s Club. Si vous n’êtes jamais allé à l’exposition Royal, essayez-la cette année. Enfin, les restrictions de la Covid sont levées, il devrait donc être possible de voyager sans tracas pour tout le monde au Canada et à l’étranger. Je sais que vous apprécierez le spectacle et que les exposants l’apprécieront sûrement. Si vous souhaitez démarrer un troupeau Charolais ou agrandir votre

exploitation existante avec des femelles de qualité supérieure, il y a plusieurs opportunités offertes cet automne. Découvrez les offres d’un bout à l’autre du pays, avec de nombreux éleveurs présentant leurs opérations avec des bovins du plus haut des programmes. Vous ne vous tromperez jamais en achetant du bétail de qualité pour améliorer votre troupeau. De plus, dans ce numéro, vous trouverez le calendrier des événements pour toutes les ventes de taureaux du printemps. Si le vôtre est manquant ou incorrect, merci de nous le signaler afin que nous puissions le faire corriger dans le calendrier Charolais 2023, si vous en avez fait la demande. Si vous n’avez pas été contacté par un jeune membre de l’association pour faire partie du calendrier, qui est une collecte de fonds pour l’Association des jeunes, veuillez nous contacter. Si Robbie Chomik ou moi-même pouvons vous aider dans votre participation aux ventes d’automne, n’hésitez pas à nous appeler. Conseil de commercialisation Enregistrez vos jeunes taureaux maintenant et pas en janvier lorsque vous constaterez qu’il vous manque l’ADN ou que vous courez par manque de sommeil pendant la saison des vêlages. Si vous allez faire des tests 100K, Homo polled ou leptin, échantillonnez les cheveux et faites-le tôt afin que toutes les informations soient de retour avant de commencer à construire votre catalogue de vente de taureaux. À la prochaine, Helge

Si vous avez une vente de taureaux au printemps, vérifiez le calendrier des événements pour vous assurer que la date de votre vente est là et qu’elle ne contient pas de faute. Si ce n’est pas le cas, veuillez nous en informer. 8

It has been a while since my last article, so I thought I would give you an update on what has been happening and what is planned in the future. The summer started with Darwin Rosso and I representing the CCA at the Charolais Charbray International World Congress in the United Kingdom. We spent 12 days touring England, Whales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. We were very fortunate to tour several herds across the UK as well as attend two shows, the Great Yorkshire Show, which is the largest agriculture show in England. We also attended the Castle Wellan Show in Northern Ireland. The World Congress events are highly recommended for breeders to attend as it gives you an opportunity to meet and network with breeders from many countries, on this Congress, 19 countries were represented. The Canadian Charolais Association along with the American International Charolais Association have been working on the development of a joint EPD evaluation for the past few years. There has been significant progress made in the last six months. At this stage we are working out the technical details to be able to amalgamate the two data sets, Sean McGrath, Mike Brooks along with staff from the AICA have been working very hard to get this project to the finish line. We will keep the membership informed with the progress. As we move into fall and the busy show and sale season, I will be attending some events right across our country, I will be in Quebec for Expo Boeuf in early October, from

Charolais Banner • October 2022

Expo I will be attending a sale in the Maritimes. President Kasey Phillips and I have been invited to the AICA fall board meetings and the US National Show in Kansas City in later October. The 2022 Canadian National show and sale is being held at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, ON, from November 3-5th. Farmfair International will be in Edmonton, AB, from November 9th to the 12th. Canadian Western Agribition will be in Regina, SK, from November 30th to December 3rd. The fall also features female production sales along with a few elite dispersal sales, please try to attend as many of these events as possible, these are great opportunities to gather and network with fellow breeders. The CCA board of directors will be holding their fall board meetings November 18th to the 20th at the office in Calgary, these meetings will consist of committee meetings and reports as well as developing the 2023 budget. At these meeting the applications to host the CCA AGM and the National Show are reviewed, so if your province is interested in hosting, please submit a letter of intent to cscott@charolais.com. This year, we will also be hosting the provincial presidents in a zoom call round table discussion, this will be a great opportunity to have any questions or concerns heard. Many of the Board of Directors will be attending these events so please, if you have questions about what is happening with the CCA, talk to one of them, the board is elected to work on your behalf. The office staff are also here to assist and are only a phone call away. I look forward to a successful and rewarding fall and visiting with Charolais breeders at these events.

Cela fait un certain temps depuis que mon dernier article a été publié, alors j’ai pensé faire le point sur ce qui s’est passé dernièrement et sur ce qui s’en vient dans les prochains mois. Au début de l’été, moi et Darwin Rosso avons représenté l’ACC au Congrès international des Charolais au Royaume-Uni. Nous avons passé douze jours à visiter l’Angleterre, le Pays de Galles, l’Écosse et l’Irlande du Nord. Nous avons eu la chance de visiter plusieurs troupeaux Charolais au Royaume-Uni et d’assister à deux jugements, notamment le « Great Yorkshire Show », qui est la plus importante exposition agricole en Angleterre. Nous avons également assisté au « Castle Wellan Show » en Irlande du Nord. Les événements d’un Congrès Mondial sont fortement recommandés pour les éleveurs à assister car ils vous donnent une occasion de rencontrer et d’échanger avec les éleveurs de nombreux pays, à ce congrès dix-neuf pays étaient représentés. L’Association Charolais du Canada et l’Association « American International Charolais » (AICA) travaillent depuis quelques années à l’élaboration d’une évaluation conjointe des EPD. Des progrès importants ont été réalisés au cours des six derniers mois. À ce stadeci, nous travaillons sur les détails techniques pour être en mesure de fusionner les deux ensembles de données. Sean McGrath, Mike Brooks et le personnel de l’AICA ont travaillé très fort pour mener ce projet à terme. Nous tiendrons les membres au courant des progrès. Alors que nous approchons de l’automne et que la saison des expositions et des ventes sera très Charolais Banner • October 2022

occupée, j’assisterai à certains événements partout au pays. Je serai au Québec pour l’Expo Boeuf au début d’octobre et, à partir d’Expo Boeuf, je participerai à une vente dans les Maritimes. Plus tard en octobre, le président Kasey Phillips et moi-même avons été invités aux réunions d’automne du conseil d’administration de l’AICA et au « US National Show » à Kansas City. La vente et le Jugement national canadien 2022 auront lieu à l’Exposition Royale d’hiver de Toronto, en Ontario, du 3 au 5 novembre. L’exposition « Farmfair International » se tiendra à Edmonton, en Alberta, du 9 au 12 novembre. L’exposition « Canadian Western Agribition » se déroulera à Regina, en Saskatchewan, du 30 novembre au 3 décembre. L’automne présente également des ventes de production de femelles avec quelques ventes élites de dispersion. S’il vous plaît, essayez d’assister à autant de ces événements que possible, ce sont d’excellentes occasions de se réunir et de discuter avec d’autres éleveurs. Le conseil d’administration de l’ACC tiendra ses réunions d’automne du 18 au 20 novembre au bureau de l’Association à Calgary. Ces rencontres comprendront des réunions de comités et des rapports, ainsi que l’élaboration du budget de 2023. Lors de ces réunions, les demandes d’accueil de l’AGA de l’ACC et de l’exposition nationale seront examinées. Si votre province est intéressée, veuillez envoyer une lettre d’intention à: cscott@ charolais.com. Cette année, nous tiendrons également une table ronde de discussion avec les présidents provinciaux dans le cadre d’une visioconférence Zoom. Ce sera une excellente occasion de faire entendre vos questions ou vos préoccupations. ..continued on page 16

PROFILE INTERNATIONAL EVENT

Charolais Charbray International Youth Program - United States Reegan McLeod and Dale Weinbender Photos by David Hobbs, Reegan McLeod and Dale Weinbender Editor’s Note: The Charolais Charbray International (CCI) Youth Program started in 2018, when Helge and I hosted it at CCYA in Manitoba and CCYA 2019 in Saskatchewan. 2021 was held virtually through a photography and video competition. Ireland will host 2023 and Australia will host 2024. CCI supports the program by sanctioning the host country and paying each member country that participates in the CCI Youth Program 1,000 Euros to assist with travel costs. Participating countries are responsible for the balance of the costs. Each country handles this differently. Some fundraise, some make it the responsibility of the youth member and some Associations pay the balance. CCYA has guidelines for selecting participants for these travel and educational opportunititues. For more information on how to be eligible, get involved in CCYA.

Reegan McLeod and Dale Weinbender had the privilege of representing Canada at the Charolais Charbray International Youth Program in Kansas and Missouri from July 27th to August 4th, 2022. They were joined by other youth from Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Mexico and the United States.

Wednesday, July 27th Our tour started first thing Wednesday morning with a tour of Biozyme at St.Joseph, Missouri, where we met with Cody Jansen and Patti Long. Biozyme is a company that offers a complete line of high quality feed supplements and feed additives. Their main product lines are Vitaferm and Sure Champ, these products are widely used across the United States. After the tour at biozyme, we headed to Northwest Missouri State University to tour their new Agriculture teaching facility, student

run farm and Charolais program. NMSU is known for producing bulls such as NWMSU Doc Silver 362 Pld and NWMSU Big Time 166. A few hours down the road, we visited Wright Charolais, where Chris Peuster (herdsman) toured us through their sale facility and reception hall. After this, we walked up the hill to see the famous LT Rushmore 8060 Pld still going at 14 years of age with 1800 registered progeny. Chris also showed us their fall calving bred heifers selling in their

Charolais Banner • October 2022

early September online sale. Here we saw daughters and full sisters to WC Milestone 5223. “The opportunity to tour many different herds was definitely a highlight. There was a chance to see a lot of different genetics from what we use in Canada. We also saw a lot of similar pedigrees to many in Canada as well,” explained Dale Weinbender. After our tour at Wright Charolais, Chris took us to their meat shop, where they feature Akaushi beef. We stopped for supper at Shrouds, a place famous for their fried chicken.

Thursday, July 28th Our second tour day started with a visit to the American Charolais head office in Kansas City. We met with Dr. Clint Rusk, AICA Executive Vice President, to discuss the differences between the Charolais breeds among the different countries and how our registration processes differ. We made a short drive down to the National World War I Memorial Museum, a highlight of our trip. Our international group loaded up and headed down to Manhattan, Kansas for the start of the CharFocus conference. We stayed

24

in the Haymaker dorms at Kansas State University. The first night of CharFocus was in the Stanley Stout Center where we took part in the welcome and ice breakers with the AIJCA juniors, followed by educational presentations on; Animal Disease Traceability (Callahan Grund), Flint Hills Pasture Management and Prescribed Burning (KC Olson), Managing Nutrition for varying stages of Production (Cassie Jones), and Livestock Judging Evaluation with Chris Mullinix. After the presentations, we partook in more networking and ice breaker

Charolais Banner • October 2022

games with the AIJCA junior members to conclude the first day of the CharFocus conference. All the conference attendees stayed at the Haymaker dorms on the KSU campus.


Friday, July 29th The second day of CharFocus began with a meat science demonstration with Travis O’Quinn, where we took part in a class demonstration followed by a tour of their meat lab and teaching facility. Next the CharFocus group bused to Fink Beef Gesnetics to take part in educational reproduction sessions. When we arrived, we broke into groups and rotated between the following sessions: Calving How To (AJ Tarpoff, KSU Extension Vet), IVF Technique (Vyetlle), Grading Embryos and Fetal Sexing (Cross Country Genetics), Repro Tracts 101 - AI practice. “This was one of the favorite parts of the conference, reproductive

technology has always been a huge interest of mine. Being able to sort and grade embryos is something I have always wanted to experience,” Dale shared. Once the sessions were complete, we toured cattle on display, some will be on offer in their annual female sale in October. The sessions were very interesting, a favorite of many during the conference. After departing from Fink Beef Genetics, we headed to the Flint Hills to visit Nextgen Cattle Company. Here we toured their bull yard, where they were getting bulls ready for their fall bull sale at the end of September. The crew at Nextgen talked with us about their genetic selection, feeding program, and sale

Charolais Banner • October 2022

preparation. Before departing to their sale facility, we stopped to see LT Badge 9184 Pld, the high selling bull from the 2020 Lindskov-Thiel Bull Sale. After touring, we loaded buses back to the sale facility where they had their top cows with calves on display and supper for everyone. At the conclusion of supper, we took part in more icebreakers and group activities before we departed to Manhattan for the night.

Saturday, July 30th The third day of the CharFocus conference started off with a quick breakfast before loading the buses for Rock Springs Ranch for the morning. Here we took part in numerous activities, such as zip lining, archery, and trust building exercises within our groups. Following the morning’s activities, we traveled out to Tiffany Cattle Company Feedlot for a tour of the yard and facilities. Tiffany Cattle Company is a 35,000 head capacity feedlot; they grass approximately 10,000 - 12,000 head each summer and grow all their own silage and feed. The yard was built on an old 42-acre Army Air Corp. base. At the conclusion of the tour, we went back to K-State Campus for ice cream that is made from the product collected from the K-State Dairy. After ice cream, we headed to a classroom to give our presentations about the Charolais Industry from our respective countries. To start the presentations, Megan Fink, an

28

Charolais Banner • October 2022

AIJCA alumni gave a presentation on all the international trips she has had the opportunity to take part in, both with the American Charolais Junior Association and with K-State University. Following Megan’s presentation, the international delegates all gave their presentations including the ACJIA board of directors. “Another extremely interesting highlight for me was learning about the Charolais breed in different countries. Cattle are selected for different traits and differ greatly between some countries. Learning the differences in the junior programs and being able to take some ideas back to the Canadian Charolais Youth Association was a great opportunity. This was a great idea as it gave everyone a look into the Charolais breed and the junior programs in the different countries,” explained Dale. To end the day, we enjoyed an evening of bowling and pizza on the K-State campus.


Sunday, July 31st On Sunday morning, Debbie Lynn-Blythe gave the closing presentation for the CharFocus Conference on Sustainability. It was an interesting topic for international countries to see how it compares to their own countries. Following the sustainability presentation,

the conference wrapped up with closing ceremonies before everyone checked out of Haymaker Hall for the conclusion of the first annual CharFocus. The international group loaded up and headed back to Kansas City. On the way we drove by the Kansas International Speedway and stopped

at the Legends outlet mall for the majority of the afternoon. A highlight here was stopping by Cavenders, a large western outlet store. We wrapped up the day at T-Shotz Golf driving range where we had supper and practiced our golf skills.

Monday, August 1st Stephenson Charolais, in Rocheport, was our first stop for the day. Here we looked at Denny Stephenson’s herd of 40 Charolais cattle. Although this may seem small to some, it turns out that the average cattle herd in Missouri is 32 head. His emphasis on calving ease and disposition was evident as we walked through his animals. Then we were off to the University of Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station where a local PhD student discussed her studies on beef on dairy with us. This was an intriguing topic, as most of the international countries being represented were already utilizing beef on dairy. The University of Missouri Animal Science Center was next on our agenda. Dr. Robert Schnabel gave a presentation on genetics and demonstrated how advancing technology is being utilized. It was a busy day as we also visited Ricketts Charolais Ranch. Dr. Rex Ricketts, a retired animal

30

scientist, emphasizes carcass and performance in his herd and does so by using proven sires including, LT Countdown 9712 Pld, LT Affinity 6221 Pld and RCR Hes The One 7181. Ben and Darla Egger then welcomed us to Sydenstricker Genetics, which is one of the leading Angus operations in the United States. Here we got to see SydGen Enhance, which is one of the Angus breeds’ top registration sires.

Charolais Banner • October 2022

To wrap up the day, Mike and Brian Schumacher toured us through Feeders Grain Inc., before touring their Charolais herd. We were able to see the whole process behind Feeders Grain Inc. from the raw ingredients to the bagged goods in the storefront. Their consistent Charolais program includes influence from sires such as LT Affinity 6221 Pld, LT Ledger 0332 P, VPI Free Lunch 708T, and DC/CRJ Tank E108.


Tuesday, August 2nd Tuesday started with an educational eye-opening tour of the Bayer Agricultural Research and Development Center. This plant research center was built in 1984 and was the world’s first biotech facility. This facility was a highlight of Reegan’s trip; “It was incredible to see how far the agriculture industry has evolved in such a short amount of time. I also loved that this facility sparked a passionate conversation between the international youth regarding perspectives of the future of agriculture and sustainability.”

Following the Bayer tour, we made a quick stop to see the Gateway Arch National Park in St.Louis, the tallest monument in the U.S.A. After a nice “touristy” refresh from our busy agenda, we headed to Wild Indian Acres, in DeSoto Missouri, where we toured Mike Kisners’ herd of Charolais cattle. Mike recently had a female sale in September where his consistent herd brought a $7,000 average. Bill Nottke, of Riverdale Land and Livestock. treated us to a delicious dinner to wrap up our day. Bill is a former president of the American

International Charolais Association and has notable herd sires including, Eatons Bullseye 3033 TW and JDJ Smokester J1377 P ET.

Wednesday, August 3rd We started the day at the Springfield Livestock Marketing Center, where we extensively discussed beef marketing within the Springfield area and globally. We took a short drive down the road to visit Jason and Pam Hankins, of Hankins Farms. Here we viewed the top end of both their Charolais and Red Angus herds, toured their show barn, and had intriguing conversations and demonstrations about how fitting practices differ around the globe. Although Canadian fitting techniques are quite similar to the United States, other international youth were quite shocked about how “square” the Americans like their animals. Then we were off to Missouri State University, home of the largest Hereford program of any University in the United States. The College of Agriculture delivered a presentation on the beef cattle business in Missouri and we saw their show string of Hereford animals they were getting ready for the State Fair. We made a quick stop to visit the

original and largest Bass Pro Shop in the world in Springfield, before checking out the Ozark State Fair. That evening, Bruce and Janna Bradley, of Bradley Cattle, welcomed us to their ranch. Bradley’s veterinarian provided us with an information session on veterinary medicine and practices utilized for herd health in their region. We toured their Charolais and Red Angus herds and gained insight into Bruce’s focus on providing bulls for the commercial cattleman.

Thursday, August 4th We wrapped up our trip on August 4th, with yet another fun filled day. We started the day by visiting the Missouri Prime Beef Packers plant which opened in 2021 and processes around 500 head per day. Reegan claims, “This was definitely one of my favourite tours of the trip as we were able to see everything come together, from unloading the animals to fabrication.” The plant emphasized five key components of their facility, including food safety, animal and environmental wellness, product traceability, product versatility, and team member prosperity. Following the tour, we went to the Joplin Regional Stockyards. They market 600,000+ head of cattle yearly and are one of the three largest livestock markets in the United States. It was incredible to see this facility which encompasses 2,500 pens and 10 acres underneath one roof. That afternoon we completed our final two herd tours at Aschermann Charolais and Schaffer Cattle Company. At Aschermann Charolais, we viewed both Charolais and Akaushi genetics and discussed the value that both breeds hold in the beef production industry. Schaffer Cattle Company was our final Charolais tour and their emphasis on foot structure, udder quality, and moderate framed cattle was evident, as we walked through their consistent herd. Our trip came to a close in Kansas City, as we watched the Kansas City Royals take on the Boston Red

Sox. Although there were some slight discrepancies about who the better MLB team was, our international group made the most of our last night together. I am so appreciative to have had this opportunity to represent Canadian Charolais Youth. I really enjoyed the variety of activities I was able to participate in and that the activities heavily included, but were not limited to, the Charolais breed. Through these experiences I was able to gain industry insight, create lifelong friendships, and have a lot of fun. After visiting with youth from around the globe, I am certain that the future of the Charolais industry is in great hands! I was very grateful to be surrounded by such devoted, driven, passionate, and progressive individuals. “I would like to send a huge thank you to the Canadian Charolais Association for endorsing this program and allowing me to increase my network and knowledge in the agriculture industry. I would also like to thank the American International Junior Charolais Association and David Hobbs for their time and effort

Charolais Banner • October 2022

in organizing this life changing trip. Finally, I would like to thank my parents for their unwavering support and for raising me in this incredible industry,” affirms Reegan. Dale Weinbender concludes, “It was a privilege to have the opportunity to represent Canada at the International Charolais Charbray Youth Conference in Kansas, Missouri, this summer. It was a great chance to learn, meet people from around the world that also have a passion for the Charolais industry and be able to tour many different Charolais herds. I want to personally thank David Hobbs and Kaitlyn Chisum, of the American International Charolais Association, who worked extremely hard to put together a great first annual CharFocus Conference, and for organizing over a week of touring for the international delegates. Next, I would like to thank the Canadian Charolais Association for trusting Reegan and myself to represent Canada at such a major event. The CCA’s support of its youth members is incomparable and does not go unnoticed. These opportunities would not be possible without being a part of the CCYA program. I have been a CCYA member from an early age and the annual conferences were always a highlight of my summer every year. I strongly encourage all CCYA youth members to take part and apply for opportunities such as this one.

OBITUARY

Merv Schmidt passed away peacefully in his home on September 15th, at the age of 71. Merv is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Barb; their children Dawn (Gord) Joseph; Tina Schmidt and Tyler (Kaleigh) Schmidt; his grandchildren Samuel, Carter and Troy Palaschuk; Colby Joseph; Poet Schmidt and step-grandson Luka Johns. Merv started the Belmont Polled Charolais herd at Lipton, Saskatchewan, in 1972 and dispersed in 2006. Merv and his family were very active in the industry showing, selling and producing some highly sought-after genetics across North America. They produced many champions including an Agribition

Champion Female. In 1986, they raised and sold MSW Kapone 30U, who sold in the Agribition sale at just over 8 months of age for $27,000 for ½ interest. Not only did he produce some great white cattle, but he was also early in producing some top red factor animals. With a homozygous red cow named SVS Fireball 19F, who had 37 registered progeny, he raised some well-known sires such as Belmont’s Indiana 9J, MSW Y2K and MSW Craven Red 29M. These three sires combined had over 1,500 progeny registered in Canada. The year he dispersed, he sold a high selling homozygous red bull in the Best of the Breeds sale (that he had founded) called Belmont’s Red Mist 27R. Upon the decision to slowdown, the land and the livestock were dispersed. He was not one to sit idle and started working for Saskatchewan Crop Insurance part-time, which

Mervin Schmidt

he loved as he was still involved in the agriculture industry he was so passionate about. When he wasn’t working, he was busy with his trees and yard as he discovered he had a bit of a green thumb and creative side that he hadn’t tapped into before. Another love of his was the Riders, win or lose he wore the green with pride. On one of their vacations, Merv and Barb discovered they enjoyed warm weather and purchased a winter residence in Mesa, Arizona, and that was where he found a love for golf. With a big smile, Merv was always the first to help friends and neighbours. He prided himself in the art of making sausage, was awesome with his barbecue and was a wonderful host. He had a work ethic that surpassed many. He worked hard, played hard but loved even harder.

HERD HEALTH

Selecting an Appropriate Vaccine for Cattle Production Roy Lewis DVM

Healthy cattle production relies on good vaccination strategies. The general public has now heard about efficacy of COVID 19 vaccines, two doses of vaccine storage and the logistics of transport. Now Moderna even has a vaccine out with the newest omicron strain in it. We are now hearing about supply issues. A single dose vaccine of 66% efficacy is that worse or better than needing two doses to reach 95% efficacy. It all still comes down to the basic principles of herd immunity. Getting the masses vaccinated and depending on exposure levels and pre-existing diseases will determine what the outcome is. Vaccination is never going to be 100%, but it could save the day. Our cattle vaccines have been doing this for lots of years with generally good success. There are so many out there and if I go to print them all from the compendium, four pages of individual vaccines come up. Therefore, having a herd veterinarian who knows your area, herd, management style and type of cattle is key to picking the right combination for you. Even purebred versus commercial may entail a slightly different protocol or timing of vaccinations. As an overarching statement, the vaccines must pass clinical trials for efficacy and safety not dissimilar to what is happening with the COVID 19 vaccine trials. Is it safe to give and how long will protection last? All vaccines run the rare risk of allergic reactions, which is why that warning is on all the cattle vaccines to give epinephrine so every producer should have some in his/her emergency kit. The Beef Cattle Research Council is doing more research towards

making vaccination programs more efficacious. From improving manufacturing, duration of protection, handling/storage multiple combinations, to ease of administration are all ways to increase efficacy. Then we must all try to get fellow producers/customers to vaccinate and follow a routine vaccination program. This is why I try to advocate in bull sale and female sale catalogues, as well as online marketing of cattle, the health parameters including the vaccination status. That way we can all share in the benefit of well vaccinated cattle and if any gaps are determined for your operation, you can address them. All vaccines are tested and the different companies’ vaccines protecting for the same diseases will be pretty darn comparable. If a vaccine comes out and there are too many adverse events, such as allergic reactions or vaccine failures, they don’t stay on the market long. This is very rare with the amount of testing that is done ahead of time. Companies spend lots of money developing these vaccines, so it is in their best interest to put out an efficacious product. The core vaccines that are used pretty much without exception are the clostridias, the core respiratory pathogens, including the viruses IBR, BVD, PI3, BRSV, as well as the bacterial respiratory pathogens Histophilus, Mannheimia and Pasteurella. Pasteurella is not as common in the vaccines and the pathogen histophilus causes other issues such as joint, heart and brain forms of the disease, which you also get protection for. Likewise, the IBR can cause abortions and BVD reproductive losses or persistently infected calves, so vaccinating with that vaccine gives this protection as Charolais Banner • October 2022

a secondary benefit. Most, if not all, of these diseases can be vaccinated for with as little as two shots and of course booster doses as required. Everyone’s management system is different and depending on when you turn calves out to pastures and weaning occurs will help us decide what time frame to give the vaccines and which combination may be best. Killed, live or intranasal vaccines are the newest choice you have on method of administration. There are three major pharmaceutical companies that have a complete line of vaccines and from there, one chooses clostridias that are a little broader spectrum and contain tetanus or redwater, which are not in all the clostridial vaccines. Also, any time you give histophilus in combination with clostridials, tetanus is NOT part of the combination. The only other thing I would suggest as a core vaccine is the additional scours vaccines given to the breeding cows and heifers. Again, not all herds vaccinate but most do, especially if they calve in the winter months, have found it a good management choice. Three companies manufacture scours vaccines and they are all very similar in coverage, it is the timing before calving that is critical. Keep in mind calving occurs over at least a two-month period so not every cow will be in the ideal period when vaccinated. Other vaccines, such as anthrax, leptospirosis, footrot, pinkeye and vibriosis, would be others that may be added if there is a problem in your herd or the area. It is becoming more common for a number of purebred producers to vaccinate their bull calves for footrot before selling them. Again, they are trying to eliminate the pesky footrot in a breeding bull ..continued on page 39 37

Canadian Cattle Association President’s Report Reg Schellenberg

Fall’s arrival brings many things including the return of our elected officials to Ottawa and the much anticipated Canadian Cattle Association’s (CCA) annual BBQ on the Hill to help kick-off the fall session of Parliament. Our team in Ottawa worked hard to make this year’s event a resounding success. Hosting a BBQ-style reception on the Hill is a great meeting place for CCA directors and staff to connect with Parliamentarians and their staff and informally discuss the policy priorities of cattle producers in the lead up to the consultation for the next federal budget. We enjoyed having so many of our Parliamentary colleagues – new and old – join us for a delicious and nutritious burger made from certified sustainable beef. This was a fitting touch following our successful “Don’t Label My Beef” campaign last spring. Here’s a snapshot of the priorities that we will continue to discuss with Parliamentarians and government officials throughout the fall session. Adverse weather The impacts of the adverse weather – drought and flooding - in the prairies are still top of mind. Minister Bibeau’s announcement of the initial regions eligible for the Livestock Tax Deferral provision on August 30, 2022, was welcomed news for many cattle producers, but we know some regions have been overlooked. This announced list of designated regions is preliminary, and more regions will likely be added as forage yield information becomes available. We continue to advocate for all impacted producers to be included. Longer term, CCA is seeking to have the Livestock Tax Deferral provisions available for producers to self-elect to 38

manage through adverse events that result in the forced sales of cattle. FMD Vaccine Bank With many areas of the world being foot and mouth disease (FMD) positive, CCA continues to advocate for the establishment of a Canadian vaccine bank of 30 million doses with 2.5 million of 12 different strains as part of our emergency preparedness plan. While FMD has not been detected in North America, the risk still exists, as the world opens to more frequent travel. FMD is the most economically and socially devastating livestock disease threat to Canada and is highly contagious to livestock and wildlife. There is a vaccine bank in the United States (U.S.), but we cannot count on having access to it, as there aren’t enough doses to meet the needs of U.S. producers, if disease was found in North America. For this reason, it is important that Canada is not reliant on the U.S. and have an in-house vaccine bank. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency agrees with us on this point, but the challenge remains securing the funding needed to support establishing and maintaining the doses. CCA will continue to build on our advocacy efforts on this issue and this will be a key ask in our submission for prebudget consultations. To help protect our livestock and wildlife populations and our economy, everyone plays a role in stopping the spread of FMD. If you are returning from an FMD positive country, please report this to the Canadian Border Services Agency and avoid contact with livestock or agricultural operations for at least five days, and 14 days if you have been in rural areas, or in close contact with livestock. It is also recommended that footwear should be left behind if you Charolais Banner • October 2022

know you’ve been in a country that is positive. Trade Trade continues to be an important priority for us. Our team is actively engaging the Government when it comes to the negotiation of new trade agreements and reviews to existing agreements to ensure that Canadian cattle producers benefit from expanded market access. CCA continues to monitor the negotiations of the Canada-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement and raising the importance with both elected and department officials of addressing technical barriers found in the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) that are limiting Canada’s beef exports to the European Union (EU). With the fifth anniversary of CETA’s implementation on September 21, 2022, frustrated Canadian cattle producers were reminded of the continuing imbalance of the beef trade between Canada and the EU. CCA’s advocacy work continues to address the technical barriers that are plaguing this agreement. Earlier this year, CCA submitted scientific evidence on why the EU should recognize the efficacy of Canada’s food safety system. We remain hopeful that their review of the science will result in the approval of the way things are done in Canada. This approval will pave the way for both Canada and the EU to enjoy beneficial growth in bilateral beef trade in the future. Environment and sustainability Lastly, with the launch of our new brand in July, we hope to create more opportunities to share our positive story when it comes to raising cattle in Canada and how we are a world leader in sustainable beef production. ..continued on page 39


OBITUARY

Kendall Leroy Bignell April 7, 1937 – September 15, 2022

Kendall Bignell, Buffalo Lake Charolais, Stettler, Alberta, passed away September 15th, at the age of 85. Kendall is survived by his loving family: wife of 61 years Shirley Bignell, of Stettler; children: Dwayne (Marie) Bignell, of Halkirk; Lyle (Wendy) Bignell, of Stettler; Wynne (Charlie) Nemetz, of Stettler, and Karen (Ed) Brown, of Vermilion; 10 grandchildren and 11 greatgrandchildren. Kendall was born in Stettler to Chester and Gertie Bignell on April 7, 1937. He was the eldest of seven children. At the time, Chester farmed with his brothers in the area northeast of Stettler. Kendall began his school years attending the Bignell School. In 1946, Chester moved his

family to the Buffalo Lake area where the current farm exists today. Milking cows, feeding pigs and chickens and farming with horses was a daily part of Kendall’s life. Kendall met Shirley Larose, who was a high school friend of his sister Myra and they were married in 1960. They lived in the Stettler area raising their four children, always helping Chester and maintaining a connection with the farm. Kendall had a passion for ball and playing with the Liberal ball team was something he always talked about over the years. Many lifelong friends came from those days. Kendall always owned a horse or two and Shorthorn cattle, and he was heard saying many times over the years “nothing prettier than a roan herd.” In 1974, Kendall accomplished a long time goal when he and Shirley

took over the farm from Chester and moved a house and their family to the farm. Kendall grain farmed and a dairy barn was built in 1976. They milked cows, raised some pigs and even had a short-term venture in the sheep business. The dairy cows were dispersed in the 80s and grain farming continued along with an increase in the Shorthorn cattle herd. In 1997, a purebred Charlois herd was started along with his son Lyle and for 25 years bulls were sold. Kendall delivered bulls in the spring of every year. This was a job he loved and he knew where everyone lived so there was never a need for a map. Kendall’s greatest joy was teasing and watching his 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren grow around him. He will be dearly missed by all.

HERD HEALTH, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 37 right at breeding time. We all know lots of other lameness conditions which there is no vaccine for. The list goes on into vaccines for mastitis in the dairy industry and currently I am sure vaccines for mycoplasma and johne’s I am sure have been contemplated and even maybe some research put towards. Just like with COVID 19, there are some very

bright minds working in the large pharmaceutical companies, so new improved and different methods of administration will come in the future. I was actually surprised that the COVID 19 vaccine didn’t come out intranasally, as there is a corona intranasal vaccine approved for cattle, so that technology has already been used in animal production.

The future holds more multivalent vaccines in hopefully easier and novel forms of administrations. Anytime we get insertion of a new vaccine treatment, which may include antimicrobials, the risk of disease should go down. Prevention is always better than treatment and vaccination is one of the best forms of biosecurity on your farm

CANADIAN CATTLE ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT’S REPORT, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 38 With the myths of the negative impacts of beef production on the environment, it is important that we highlight to the Government how the Canadian beef industry, through the 2020-2024 National Beef Strategy and our 2030 goals, are aligned with their climate change targets. We can also share our progress through

the identified specific metrics and illustrate how we continue to make improvements. If we don’t tell our story, we can be sure that someone else will. We are taking that story to meetings with Ottawa decision makers. This is being supported by a digital campaign targeted at the Ottawa Parliamentary Charolais Banner • October 2022

area. Environmental pressure on our industry continues from many players. We are making sure that the cattle production story is being presented accurately. Best wishes for a successful and safe fall with positive returns on your labour for the fall calf run and harvest. 39

CANADIAN BEEF IMPROVEMENT NETWORK: A Vision of Value Creation

Sandy Russell, CEO

The Canadian Beef Improvement Network (CBIN) has continued to advance at a steady pace in recent months, with significant gains being made in development. In order to achieve these advancements, there has been a need at times to focus on specific steps of the development process. Although that has been important in achieving tangible outcomes it is equally important that we don’t lose sight of the broad vision of CBIN - a multi-step development process with the ultimate goal of unlocking value for the entire Canadian beef industry by connecting genetic data to production metrics from conception to consumption. As we have outlined on several occasions, CBIN has a four-step development plan to drive this transformational initiative forward to full operation and this plan, in its entirety, remains our overarching goal. Only then will we be able to truly capture the value of genetics across the entire beef production chain. The four-step plan is as follows: 1. Build the Data Foundation: Build an operational system that will standardize data collection amongst participating Breed Associations (in progress and to be completed by early 2023). 2. Facilitate Data Linkages: Develop a cross-sector genetic data hub that will facilitate linkages of genetic data to traditional production metrics. 3. Translate Data: Create the analytical resources to

42

assist in the translation of genetic data into informed decisions that allow increased value capture from conception to consumption. 4. Drive Adoption: Advance the understanding of the value of genetic data incorporation and resource utilization across the entire beef production system. With step one, the development of a registry portal to standardize and unify data collection well underway, we now must shift our focus to the next stages of development. It is only through connecting genetic data to the other production metrics of importance within the beef production system will we be able to fully capture the value of genetic data. There is no doubt that CBIN is a transformational undertaking for the Canadian beef industry, with significant potential to create sustainable value for all segments of the production chain. All steps of the development plan are critical to success, but if there is one, that in my mind, is the most challenging yet most fundamental to achieving the vision of CBIN, it is step two. Connecting genetic data to production metrics across all segments of our beef production system is no small feat, but yet without tackling this broader linkage, we truly will fall short of the ultimate goal of CBIN. Genetic advancements within the beef industry have lagged other livestock production systems and while I truly believe our diversity is our greatest advantage, it has also been our greatest challenge at times. Identifying that diversity to

Charolais Banner • October 2022

help inform producers’ breeding and production decisions is essential to creating value within the beef production system and being able to consistently replicate that value within each of our businesses. While we know that Canadian beef cattle genetics are highly sought after, both domestically and internationally, the ability to access and interpret genetic data has been limiting and it was clear that the data infrastructure did not currently exist within the beef industry to efficiently and effectively link genetic data to metrics of importance across the production chain. It is for these reasons that we must tackle the next steps in the development process, as challenging as they may be. Only then will we be able to fully realize both the economic and environmental value of data driven genetic advancements within the Canadian beef industry. Substantial collaborative efforts have driven CBIN to this stage of development but clearly, much work lies ahead in our efforts to fully capture the return on our investment in this transformational initiative. While the momentum has been significant recently, we must continue to drive forward in the development of CBIN in order to capture the value potential of Canada’s leading beef cattle genetics. This will require continued collaborative efforts of all those involved in beef production and I am confident we will continue to rise to the challenge and capture the potential opportunity that lies ahead.

CCYA AGM

Justin Harcourt, Vice-President

The Canadian Charolais Youth Association held its Annual General Meeting in Renfrew, Ontario, in conjunction with the CCYA ‘Back in the Swing of Things’ Show & Conference. Haley Rosso, the 2021/2022 President, along with her Board of Directors, chaired the meeting and brought forth the names of each provincial nominee for the new National Board elections. We was very excited to introduce

our newly elected National Board Members for the 2022/2023 year at the Awards Banquet held on Saturday night! We would like to formally welcome Cassidi Elder, SK; Travis Saunders, ON; Kim Turnbull, AB and Madisyn Robertson, MB, to the CCYA National Board of Directors. We would also like to say a huge thank you to our departing directors: Haley Rosso, Past CCYA President; Evan Jamieson, Past Vice-President; Wyatt Burgomaster and Will Rosso. They will be greatly missed! Last year the CCYA introduced the Alumni Director position. This

position is to be filled by a retired CCYA Member who is actively involved in the Charolais breed and has previously participated in CCYA Conferences & Shows throughout the years. Last year, we were very fortunate to have Keegan Blehm and Dale Weinbender fill the two positions. We would like to say thank you to Dale for all your hard work and welcome Keegan back as he was re-elected for the 2022/2023 year. We also want to welcome Haley Rosso, who will be joining us as an Alumni Director alongside Keegan and the CCYA National Board.
