POINTS TO PONDER

From the Field Helge By

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 and there is a bigger spread on the heifer calves than I think there should be. The later we get and the heavier the animals are, the spread on the heifer calf historically closes some. At this stage it looks like a $150 to $200 more per calf than last year. Let’s hope it continues and even increases for our cow/calf customers. 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. Sept 15th–TEAM Auction 100 Charolais buckskin steers in South West Saskatchewan for Oct 27th delivery. 620 lb @ 2.1475 = $1,331 Sept 19th–One ranch’s tan Charcross calves in Olds Alberta Auction Mart. 125 head, steers 750 lb @ 2.12 = $1,590 apiece, heifers 655 lb @ 1.85 = $1,212 apiece Sept. 21st–Ontario Stockyards, Cookstown 5 white Charolais heifers weighing 739 lb sold for 190.25 for a $1,406 average Sept. 22nd–20 white 700 lb Charolais steers topped Heartland Livestock Virden, Manitoba at $2.301/2 averaging $1,615 apiece I repeat myself, but take some time to sit in the market where your bull customers sell their calves and cheer them on. We expect them to be at our sales next spring, but show that you are interested in how the bulls are working for them and what they are

receiving for their calves. We have been fortunate to have travelled to many countries promoting Canadian Charolais and have many friends around the world as a result. Because we know and have toured their operations, we follow what is happening with them and the Charolais in their country. One of the largest herds we have toured in Australia, with over 1000 cows, had a great sale on September 25th. Moongool Charolais, Yuleba, Queensland, averaged $9,133 selling 92 of 94 bulls including setting an Australian record of $83,000 for a 24 month old son of Silverstream Evolution. While on the topic of Australia I find it interesting that they do a lot more ultrasound measuring than we do in Canada. In their shows, they scan all the bulls and in particular are looking at the rib and rump fat measurements and have developed an EPD for this as well. RUMP FAT AND RIB FAT EBVS (mm)–Positive EBVs indicate animals which will breed progeny fatter (or earlier finishing) than base animals and the converse for negative EBVs. EYE MUSCLE AREA EBV (sq cm) –This is currently analyzed on an age constant basis so that bulls with high growth and at least average “muscling” have the highest EBVs. This is the same as our EPD and how it is worded in their sale catalogues. As I have said before, our carcass EPD accuracies are so low that until we start doing more scanning or being able to get more parentage verified carcass data into our system, it is of little use. The Australians scan the steers at the steer shows too. This may be an alternative educational portion of our

4-H shows if the carcass data can’t be returned on the finished animals. The next World Congress is in Sweden and this will be a fun event. We had the opportunity to tour Sweden a couple of times including the World Charolais Technical Conference in 2013. The Swedish cattle are mainly polled now and the base of their polled herd came from Canada in the late 80s and early 90s. They have blended other genetics of late and have done extensive performance testing in test stations on association selected bulls. The results have produced some very highquality genetics. The Congress will run from June 29th to July 7th, so start thinking about it now as time goes quickly and you won’t want to miss it. The full itinerary starting in Stockholm and ending in Copenhagen, Denmark will be available by the end of December. If you have any questions just let us know. All of the details available at this time are posted on www.charolaisinternational.com. At Agribition this fall, Candace and I are hosting 27 cattle people from Finland and 42 from Norway. They aren’t all Charolais breeders, but they are coming to see the Canadian genetics and tour some different breed herds. If you are at Agribition and see some International guests looking around, be sure to stop and have a visit. Most speak very good English and it is interesting to see how we do things through their eyes. Listening is a big part of learning. See you on the fall show and sale circuit. Until next time, Helge

POINTS À RÉFLÉCHIR

Du Champ Helge By

Je vous écris en cette fin du mois de septembre alors que la course aux veaux d’automne commence. Comme à l’habitude, les veaux lourds sont une bonne source de profits et il y a un plus grand écart sur les génisse que je pense qu’il devrait y avoir. Plus on attend, plus les animaux sont lourds, et plus l’écart entre les génisses se rétrécit. À ce stade, cela semble vouloir rapporter 150 à 200 $ de plus par veau que l’an passé. Espérons que cela continuera et même augmentera dans l’intérêt de nos clients vaches-veaux. Voici quelques résultats préliminaires et, comme le relate un éleveur, à cette période de l’année, la performance est définitivement plus payante que la facilité de vêlage. Voici quelques exemples qui proviennent de mon compte Twitter cet automne. 15 septembre-TEAM Auction 100 Charolais buckskin bouvillons dans le Sud-Ouest de la Saskatchewan pour la livraison le 27 octobre. 620 lb @ 2.1475=1 331$ 19 septembre-One ranch’s tan Charcross calves dans Olds Alberta Auction Mart. 125 têtes, bouvillons 750lb @ 2.12 = 1 590 $ chacune, génisse 655 lb @ 1.85 = 1 212$ chacune. 21 septembre-Ontario Stockyards Cookstown, 5 génisses Charolais blanches pesant 739 lb vendues pour 190.25 pour une moyenne de 1 406 $. 22 septembre- 20 bouvillons Charolais de 700 lb ont dominé Heartland Livestock Virden au Manitoba à 2.301/2, une moyenne de 1 615$ chaque. Je me répète surement, mais prenez le temps de vous assoir et d’étudier le marché où vos clients de taureaux vendent leurs veaux et encourager les. Nous les attendons à nos ventes ce printemps, mais démontrez leurs votre intérêt quant à la façon dont leurs taureaux travaillent pour eux et ce qu’ils reçoivent pour leurs veaux. 8

Nous avons la chance d’avoir voyagé dans plusieurs pays afin de promouvoir le Charolais Canadien et cela nous a permis de se faire beaucoup d’amis à travers le monde. Parce que nous connaissons et avons visité leurs opérations, nous pouvons suivre ce qui se passe chez eux et avec le Charolais dans leur pays. L’un des plus grands troupeaux que nous avons visité en Australie, comptant plus de 1000 vaches, a réalisé une belle vente le 25 septembre dernier. Moongool Charolais, Yuleba, Queensland, a obtenu une moyenne de 9 133 $ vendant 92 de ces 94 taureaux et obtenant aussi un record Australien de 83 000$ pour un fils de Silverstream Evolution âgé de 24 mois. Toujours au sujet de l’Australie, je trouve intéressant qu’il fasse beaucoup plus d’échographies que nous en faisons au Canada. Dans leurs concours, ils scannent tous les taureaux et regardent plus particulièrement les mesures de gras des côtes et de la croupe. Ils ont également développer un EPD pour ces deux mesures. GRAS DE CROUPE ET COTES EBVS (mm) Les EVB positifs engendreront une descendance plus grasse (fini plus vite) que les animaux de base et l’inverse pour ce qui est des EVB négatifs. ZONE MUSCULAIRE DES YEUX EBV (cm2 ) Cette mesure est actuellement analysée sur une base d’âge constante afin que les taureaux à forte croissance avec au moins une musculation moyenne obtiennent les plus hauts EVB. C’est la même chose que notre EPD ainsi que la manière dont il est identifié dans les catalogues de ventes. Comme je l’ai déjà mentionné, la justesse de nos EPD de carcasse est si faible que jusqu’à ce que nous commencions à scanner davantage ou à obtenir plus de données dans notre système, il est peu utile. Les Australiens numérisent aussi leurs bovillons lors des concours. Il s’agit Charolais Banner • October 2017

peut-être d’une avenue pédagogique alternative pour les concours de 4-H, si les données des carcasses ne peuvent être redirigées vers les animaux finis. Le prochain congrès mondial est en Suède et ce sera un événement très amusant. Nous avons eu l’occasion de visiter la Suède quelque fois, y compris la Conférence technique mondiale Charolais en 2013. La majorité du bétail suédois est acère et la base de leur troupeau acère est venu du Canada vers la fin des années 80 et début 90. Ils ont mélangé d’autres génétiques tardives et ont fait des tests de performance étendus dans les stations de test sur les taureaux sélectionnés par l’association. Les résultats ont produit une génétique de très haute qualité. Le congrès se déroulera du 29 juin au 7 juillet, alors commencez à réfléchir à ce sujet car le temps passe rapidement et vous ne voudrez pas le manquer. L’itinéraire complet débute à Stockholm et se termine à Copenhague. Danemark sera disponible à la fin de décembre. Si vous avez des questions, faites-le nous savoir. Tous les détails disponibles à ce moment-ci sont affichés sur www.charolaisinternational.com Chez Agribition cet automne, Candace et moi accueilleront 27 éleveurs de bovins de la Finlande et 42 de la Norvège. Ils ne sont pas tous des éleveurs de Charolais , mais ils viennent voir la génétique canadienne et visiter de nombreux troupeaux de races différentes. Si vous êtes à Agribition et que vous voyez des invités internationaux regarder autour, n’oubliez pas de vous arrêter et de visiter avec eux. La plupart parlent très bien anglais et il est intéressant de voir comment nous faisons les choses à travers leurs yeux. L’écoute est une grande partie de l’apprentissage. Nous vous verrons sur le circuit de vente et d’exposition d’automne. À la prochaine, Helge

Hot weather and heavy horses didn’t deter the youth at this year’s Canadian Charolais Youth Association Conference and Show hosted by Ontario at the Essa Fairgrounds, just outside Barrie the long weekend in August. There were approximately sixty children and young adults, haling from Nova Scotia to Alberta and eighty head of cattle were in attendance. Essa Ag Society graciously donated the facilities. The barns were wonderful and with a heavy horse show in the neighbouring barn, all the calves are now horse broke as well! I had the pleasure of helping all week where required and specifically with the educational quiz, scholarships and the Ambassador awards. It never ceases to amaze me how well everyone with different backgrounds, operations and areas in the country come together and lift each other up, help each other out. Watch for details in the coming months for the 2018 CCYA, but save the dates as Manitoba is hosting July 25-28 in Brandon, Manitoba. A full report is highlighted later in the magazine. The second annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference was held mid August where every facet of our beef industry was in attendance and concentrated on the theme, Sharing Common Ground. “With over 700 attendees for the program and 825 for the main banquet, along with the delivery of many well received sessions and forums for discussion, the 2nd annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference has succeeded in building upon the success of last year’s inaugural event. It has also created excellent momentum to further propel our National Beef Strategy forward as we look toward another exceptional conference planned for London, Ontario, in 2018.” states 2017 CBIC Chair Virgil Lowe. As outlined in their press release, “The 2017 CBIC was a joint collaboration by the Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC), Canada Beef, the Canadian Beef Breeds Council (CBBC) and the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA). Over 30 formal meetings among Charolais Banner • October 2017

industry organizations were conducted around the main agenda, along with countless informal meetings. The conference raised over $20,000 for the Canadian Cattlemen’s Foundation. Overall attendance was 10% higher than in 2016.” To compliment your own commitment to our strong and competitive beef industry, consider attending the 2018 Canadian Beef Industry Conference in London, ON. Further details to come. CCA Scholarship Deadline – October 31 annually - Are you or do you know someone involved in agriculture and are registered in a post-secondary education program? Do you or your family use Charolais bulls? Submit your completed application to the CCA office by October 31 to be considered for one of three available scholarships totaling $3500; application forms are available at www.charolais.com/association /scholarships. Weaning Data Deadline – October 31, 2017 - Submit your weaning data ASAP to ensure you’re included in the fall EPD Evaluation. As breeders, please contribute your performance data. Performance data is imperative for the maintenance of accurate breed evaluations to ensure positive breed improvements. As well, do you collect chute-side ultrasound data? CCA can utilize chuteside ultrasound records and incorporate the data into our genetic evaluations. Contact Mel at the CCA office for details. We’re exited to head back to Manitoba AG EX this October for the 2017 National Show and Sale. People’s Choice will determine the Champions for the Wheat King Jackpot Bull Show with $6000 up for grabs - don’t miss the action on October 26 at 3:00pm CDT. To support the 2018 CCYA being held in Brandon, Manitoba, there will be a Heifer Raffle during the National Sale that takes place at 7:00 pm CDT the evening of October 26. Canadian National Charolais Show is scheduled for October 27 @ 2:00 pm CDT. If you haven’t already, make plans to attend!

Une température chaude et des chevaux lourds à proximité n’ont pas découragé les jeunes éleveurs Charolais lors de leur conférence annuelle qui a était organisée par l’Ontario au terrain d’exposition d’Essa, juste en dehors de la ville de Barrie au cours du premier weekend d’août.Il y avait environ une soixante de juniors, provenant de plusieurs provinces; de la Nouvelle-Écosse jusqu’en Alberta et exposant quatre-vingts têtes de bétail. La société d’agriculture d’ESSA a gracieusement fait don des installations.Les étables étaient de très bonne qualité. Un concours de chevaux de trait se tenait dans l’étable voisine, donc tous les veaux sont maintenant non-seulement familiers avec les expositions, mais aussi avec les chevaux! C’est avec un grand plaisir que j’ai donné un coup de main où on avait besoin de moi, spécialement avecle quiz éducatif et les prix d’ambassadeurs. Il m’étonnera toujours de constater l’entraide et le support parmi notre monde malgré qu’ils proviennent de milieux différents, soit en élevage ou soit en géographie. Les détails de la conférence édition 2018 ne sont pas encore dévoilés, mais il s’agit d’un rendez-vous au Manitoba du 25 au 28 juillet. Quant aux résultats de cette années, vous les trouverez dans ce numéro du Banner. À la mi-août, tous les segments de l’industrie bovine se sont rassemblés à Calgary pour la deuxième Conférence annuelle sous le thème; Partager un terrain d’entente. Le président de la conférence, Virgil Lowe a résumé l’évènement ainsi : Avec plus de 700 participants au programme et 825 pour le banquet principal, ainsi que de nombreuses séances et forums de discussion qui ont été bien reçues, la 2e Conférence annuelle canadienne de l’industrie bovine a réussi à exploiter le succès de l’édition inaugurale de l’année dernière. Elle a également créé l’élan nécessaire pour propulser davantage notre stratégie nationale pour la production de viande bovine tout en nous préparant pour la prochaine conférence Charolais Banner • October 2017

prévue tenir à London, en Ontario, en 2018. Tel qu’indiqué dans leur communiqué de presse, la conférence canadienne de l’industrie de la viande bovine est une collaboration entre le Conseil de recherche des bovins de boucherie (BCRC), Canada Beef, le Comité conjoint des races (CBBC) et l’Association canadienne des producteurs de bœuf (CCA). Plus de 30 réunions formelles entre les organisations de l’industrie ont été menées autour de l’ordre du jour principal, ainsi que d’innombrables réunions informelles. La Conférence a recueilli plus de $ 20 000 pour la Fondation canadienne du bœuf. Dans l’ensemble il y avait 10 % de plus de participants qu’en 2016. Nous vous prions de considérer d’être présent à la Conférence de 2018 à London, en Ontario. Restez à l’écoute pour les détails à venir. Date d’inscription pour une bourses d’études offertes par l’Association Canadienne Charolais – 31 octobre. Êtes-vous ou vous connaissez quelqu'un impliqué en l’agriculture et qui est inscrit à un programme d’études postsecondaires ? Est-ce que votre ferme familiale utilise des taureaux Charolais ? Si oui, nous vous invitons à soumettre votre demande dûment remplie au bureau de l’ACC au plus tard le 31 octobre. Vous serez considérés pour une de trois bourses disponibles pour un total de 3 500 $. Le formulaire de demande sont disponibles au site www.charolais.com/ association/scholarships. Date limite pour les données de sevrage –31 octobre 2017. En soumettant vos données de sevrage aussitôt que possible, vous assurerezd’ êtes inclus dans la ronde d’évaluations des EPD de l’automne. Les données de performances de nos éleveurs pur-sang sont très importantes. Les données de performance sont impératives pour l’entretien d’évaluations précises pour la race et pour assurer des améliorations positives. Recueillez-vous des données de carcasse par échographie?

CANADIAN CHAROLAIS YOUTH ASSOCIATION NEWS

2017 Show News Shelby Evans, National President

Hey everyone! My name is Shelby Evans and I am your newly elected National Board President for the upcoming 2017/2018 year. I have been involved in the Charolais industry my whole life, as my parents own and operate Horseshoe E Charolais out of Kenaston, Saskatchewan, and I have attended the CCYA Show and Conference annually since I was 7 years old. I am currently in the third year of my degree in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources at the University of Saskatchewan, majoring in Agribusiness. This year we had some big changes to the National Board as we had to say goodbye to a handful of board members, but we are very excited to welcome Bradley Fergus, Tyson Black, Raelynne Rosso and Bret Marshall to our team! With the new ideas from these four and the experience from the rest of our board and our Youth Advisor Kirstin, we are sure to have an exciting year to come! This summer’s CCYA conference was held in Barrie, Ontario, and was a huge success with 59 members attending from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and even

Nova Scotia. The quality of cattle exhibited at the show was great to see and the enthusiasm from the youth members who participated is definitely something that our breed should be proud of! As always, the show was definitely a highlight of the summer and I’m sure that many people are already looking forward to the 2018 show and conference that will be held in Brandon, Manitoba. As many of you know, the National Charolais show and sale is going to be held in Brandon, Manitoba, this fall and the Manitoba Charolais Youth Association is holding a couple of fundraisers with proceeds going towards the CCYA conference next summer! One highlight that you do not want to miss out on is a heifer calf raffle. Steppler Farms were generous enough to donate a top quality heifer calf from their herd that will be raffled off for $10 a ticket and the winning ticket will be drawn at the conclusion of the National Sale on October 26. Be sure to check out this amazing opportunity and once again a huge thank you to Steppler Farms for their support of our breed’s youth!

n 1969, Leo and Jean Dayne and Leo’s brother Joe went on several road trips looking for Charolais females. They found a group of 24 half blood heifers at Don Fullerton’s near Rosetown, Saskatchewan. John Bucharach took wheat in trade for another group of half bloods. This was the beginning of the LEO herd letters. Leo and Jean purchased a few purebred cows from George Biensch at Marsden, SK and then a bull from John Rudiger through an Agribition sale. In 1975, Leo and Jean imported four Full French heifers and a bull from R. and M. Howard, Harlow Essex, England. Those imports were quarantined in Edmonton. The French herd letters were LJD and the first French calves were born in 1977. In 1979, Lori Dayne married Garner Deobald and they purchased Leo and Jean’s purebreds in 1980, and thus started Cedarlea Farms, located at Hodgeville, Saskatchewan, about one hour southeast of Swift Current. They put them in with the black cows that already lived on their land and started building their numbers. There were a few purebred black cows, but they were mostly just run as commercial cows in the commercial herd owned together with Garner’s parents, Bill and Ursula. They were slowly building cow numbers and converting some cultivated land to pasture and forage. They now breed 255 purebred females and 45 commercial cows and that is probably their capacity based on their land base and feed sources. The last harvest of grain farming was in 2005. Since then, the remaining cultivated land has been rented out.

Garner served as a Saskatchewan Charolais Association director starting in 1987 and became president at the SCA’s

Garner served as the CCA President for two years

29th annual meeting. He served as president for two years beginning in 1990. He was elected on the Canadian Charolais Association Board of Directors in 1992 and became the president in 2000, serving in that capacity for two years.

During his service time with the CCA there was a lot of discussion about people selling unregistered bulls and what could be done about it. “It was always a discussion about who could police it. Was the responsibility with the Livestock Pedigree Act or the Canadian Charolais Association?” Garner explained. In 2006, the board decided to take a different approach and print the WHE listing in the Fall issue of the Charolais Connection. It had two benefits. Commercial men were surprised they were not buying registered bulls and many producers had to start enrolling their females to retain their market. It also brought enrolment numbers up as breeders might say they were breeding a certain number of cows, but their records didn’t match their talk. “The C-C program was still a big part of the activity. EPDs were just coming in and data collection was important. Charolais were very dominant in the commercial bull market and there was always discussion

whether or not we should promote the quality of the Charolais female. There seemed to be no grey area among the board members; you either wanted to promote them or you didn’t. In hindsight, it is probably better that we didn’t. There may have been a couple of times when it was beneficial, but in the long run, it was the best decision. The females were proving themselves anyway and there got to be too many white females in the commercial cowherd, so we lost our bull market. Breeders had to crossbreed with something else,” remembers Garner. Whole Herd Enrolment also came in during Garner’s time on the board. He was there for the hiring of three General Managers and the transition between managers took extra time. He was president during two hirings and spent a lot of time making trips to Calgary to keep things going. Garner started working with the

Garner started working with the Canadian Charolais Association on October 1, 2004, as a national fieldman. Canadian Charolais Association on October 1, 2004, as a national fieldman. His mandate was to expand the CCA’s public role in the commercial beef industry. The desire to re-instate a fieldman to boost the breed’s profile in the commercial industry came from a membership survey and was endorsed by the board of directors. The position was also seen as important support for the purebred members of the organization. Garner held this position until the spring of 2007. During his tenure as fieldman, he was responsible for winding down the C-C program. He was the last national fieldman to this point. He kept the Charolais profile high at a lot of commercial calf sales. He held a lot of producer meetings where he tried to bring commercial and purebred breeders together. He wrote an article in every issue of the Charolais Banner

and Connection entitled, “On the Trail.” Garner’s resignation letter to the CCA was printed in the May issue of the Charolais Banner as his final On the Trail. He started with Boehringer Ingelheim in April 2007 and continues to be employed by them as Bovine Territory Manager for Saskatchewan and southwest Manitoba. He is quick to say that all of this was only possible because he had strong support from Lori and the family at home. Lori has worked off the farm as a Vet-Tech at the Hodgeville Vet Clinic since 1991. She continues to work one day a week. In November 2016, she received an award in recognition of 40 years in the Veterinary Technology profession. She and their daughter Kylie have 25 horses and stand their own stallion. Lori drove to Iowa with daughters Bre and Kylie to bid on a particular roan colt. Lori laughs, “I had one on my left side telling me ‘that’s enough’ and one on my right telling me ‘we drove this far, buy him.’” Kylie says now, “it’s a good thing you didn’t listen to me, because he’s such a great horse.” Peptos Boon Shine is an NRHA money earner and also has AQHA points in reining. continued on page 24

They do a bunch of the ground work in the training of their horses, but they get sent to trainers for a few months to give them consistent riding time. “We were part of the Shamrock Quarter Horse Sale for 35 years. Our final sale was in 2012. Some members retired or moved away and we just didn’t have enough people or horses to keep the sale going. Now we market some through consignment sales and privately,” explains Lori. “Boon’s foals are being started as reining or ranch horse propects and as they are maturing, they are showing versatility in reining, working cow, roping, penning, sorting and barrels. Garner and Lori have 3 children. Rhett, Bre and Kylie. All three children were involved in sports and 4-H. After Junior Hockey, Rhett worked and toured in Australia for a year. He worked for some Charolais breeders and then with a company preparing for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Once back in Canada, he helped with farming, played senior hockey for the Hodgeville Huskies and enrolled at the U of R convocating with a degree in Geology. Rhett works for the Ministry of Industry and Resource. Rhett and Brandee have two children, Dryden and Ainslee. Bre spent her school years participating in ringette, volleyball, badminton, fastball and track. Her ringette team has 9 Provincial Gold 24

medals and a Saskatchewan Winter Games Gold Medal. She graduated from Lethbridge Community College with a diploma in Renewable Resource Management. She worked in the oil patch in the environmental field for several years until her husband took a job with Vermillion Gas and Oil in France in January 2015. Bre and Todd have two children, Ayden and Evan. Bre and the kids come home each spring for a visit and Garner and Lori try to get to France each fall. Both Rhett and Bre still have a few cows and help when they can with the bull sale. Kylie, the youngest of the three children, was heavily involved in sports and horse showing while in high school. She played AA Ringette in Regina for several years, traveling to Nationals across the country and Canada Winter Games in Moncton in 2003. After high school graduation she spent a year in Australia and came home in 2004. “She came home and

Garner went to work,” Lori laughs. She went to the University of Saskatchewan in 2006 and convocated with her Degree in Agriculture majoring in Animal Science in 2010. She started working with CanWest DHI where she is still employed. She is the South West Saskatchewan Field Tech for this dairy science company. She takes milk samples, analyzes the data and sits down with the producers to give them options to maximize their production. It is a little more than half time. Kylie married Brian Hawkins (better known as BJ) in 2011 and they bought their place in 2012. BJ has been full time at Cedarlea since then, only taking time off to drive a combine at continued on page 26

harvest time, helping his family with their 35,000 plus acres. The bulk of the day to day operations at Cedarlea are carried out by Kylie, Brian and Lori. The bigger jobs are left until everyone is around to pitch-in. As Cedarlea Farms’ cow numbers grew, the need to develop a bull market increased. They consigned in the first Top Cut Bull Sale in Swift Current with Murray Blake, Richard Carlson and Dwayne Ash. They moved to Mankota to sell bulls when the sale moved there. They sold some of their offering in Rockglen with Murray Blake and Glenn Ching. They sold bulls in Regina Bull Sale for a number of years. They moved all of their bull sale offering to the Git ‘R Done Bull Sale at Windy Willows Farms in 2012. It offers them the opportunity to sell all of their bulls in one place, much closer to home. BJ and Kylie have kept the bull sale offering at their place since 2013 and Helge jokes that BJ is the bull whisperer. “You have the quietest bull pen, sometimes it is difficult to picture them because they are so darn docile.”

They will continue to display in The Yards at Canadian Western Agribition to keep their program in the public eye. They also display at the Medicine Hat Beef Pen Show & Cowboy Christmas Trade Show the weekend before Christmas. “It’s a great well rounded two day event that has a large 4-H component, right in the heart of cattle country. It’s wall to wall with the right kind of people,” adds Kylie. “We strive to meet the commercial demand for calving ease and performance with good temperament. It is what everyone says, but we just want to do it in a consistent manner with enough numbers to continue to supply our customers,” says Garner. “We were fortunate to get bulls like Showboat and Detonator here and form a herd of consistent cows with 3/4 sisters. Then we used Grid, our RBC Supreme Champion Bull, and he worked well to give us a lot of 3/4 and 7/8 sisters that form our cowherd base,” says Lori. “We use EPD in our selection and have been doing ultrasound measuring of our bull sale offering for six years. We have quite a few homozygous polled cows and we had continued on page 28

nineteen homo polled tested bulls in the sale this year. We didn’t test them all, but 40% of our offering was positive. Buying a polled bull is ideal, but being horned wouldn’t stop us if it was the right bull,” says Garner. “We used to sell some females in the Sterling Collection Sale and the Cypress Hills Breeders Sale. We haven’t sold a purebred female in a long time while we were building our cow herd numbers. Now that we have our numbers where we want them, we may have to consider it in the future.” Garner attended the CCA Breeder School in Olds. He thought it was so beneficial he encouraged Kylie and Brian to attend the Charolais Banner Breeder School. “We would like to go again. I found it beneficial. It is always good to meet up with breeders from across Canada. The social media day was really great, it has become such a huge part of everybody’s marketing.” “It was a terrific group of speakers who were willing to share what they have done and the different things that happened to them,” Brian adds. It also spurred Garner on to teach some workshops for Saskatchewan Agriculture on phenotypic selection of bulls. He also taught bull and female selection in Estonia last fall through a Charolais International contact. Garner’s international travel started in 1995 when he went to China for three weeks with Canadian Livestock International. Sidney Palmer and Bob Prestige asked Ken Aylesworth, the GM at the time, to send someone to represent Charolais. Ken approached Garner, who was a director on the board. Garner also served as a delegate at

He was supposed to go to the United Kingdom in 2000, but it was cancelled because of the outbreak of foot and mouth disease. He attended Mexico Congress in 2002, Brazil Congress in 2004, he was the Charolais International President when Canada hosted the Congress in 2006, 2007 Scotland Technical Conference, the 2008 Hungary Congress and the 2009 Technical Conference in Australia. “I feel Charolais International is an important organization. It is always good to know what the other societies and associations are doing around the world. It would be good to do more work together. It was hard to move forward when the control of the organization was held totally by France. There was a bit of progress made in that regard

in 2000. It is always a struggle to keep the smaller nations involved. When you have meetings once per year and the delegates change from year to year, it is a challenge to accomplish anything.” “We have made so many international contacts that have become good friends. Kylie and Rhett both went to Australia and New Zealand with a job with Charolais friends when they arrived ,” Lori tells. Cedarlea Farms branched out with a new venture called Hawkeye Land & Cattle Ltd. in 2010. Garner had met Michel Baudot, from France, at Charolais International events and Michel was looking for someone to help some Russians find Canadian cattle. “I went there a number of times and spent days and days on the project. We had some documents signed and the people we were working with in the government changed three times. Each time, we would have to start over again. In the end after about three years of negotiating, they didn’t buy cattle, they ended up growing potatoes.” “After that, the first cattle we shipped went to Kazakhstan in 2011 and another shipment went in 2012. I had gone before with Rod Guilford with a shipment. I had helped him with selection of Hereford cattle. Kylie

They had asked for someone from Canada to be there just to keep an eye on everything. That shipment left in December from Winnipeg.” Kylie says, “We were really off the beaten path, in a small remote rural village in the middle of Kazakhstan for three weeks in the dead of winter. We were very fortunate to have one of the only houses with running water. They told us we were the only foreigners ever to be in that village. We had one English teacher to interpret for us, with minimal agriculture knowledge, which made it very difficult to communicate management techniques and animal husbandry suggestions. We always got through to them; it just took three or four tries.” Brian tells, “Two men were in charge of looking after the cattle 24 – 7, who were paid based on what the heifers gained, so there was a lot of incentive to do well. The workers had a little covered wagon with a wood fireplace where they took their breaks. I gave one of them a shot glass as a gift from Canada. He held it to his heart and motioned me to go with them. So I jumped on this little sled behind his horse and he was so excited he got that horse to start in a hurry. We both fell off the back and broke the sled. After we got it rigged back up together, we went around to their shack. The guy started pouring vodka and then pulled a hunk of meat out from under the bed and started cutting us some with a chore knife he had in his pocket,” Brian laughs, “We needed the vodka to sterilize everything.

I’ve never seen anything like that in Canada, and yet there were guys working outside with bare hands, it was hard to believe.” Kylie says “In the end it was a great opportunity and I think we achieved our main goal, which was to impart some of our western animal management techniques and ensure that the heifers were off to a good start.” Brian concludes, “We really enjoyed their hospitality and there was always plenty of good food; we had our lifetime fill of horse meat while there as well.” Gord Stephenson, Canadian Hereford General Manager at the time, approached Garner at Agribition in 2011, to get involved with the Canadian Beef Breeds Council. They were doing a restructuring of the board and thought his input would be helpful. Garner had some background with the CBBC from when he was on

32

the CCA board. Garner is now serving his second year as president of the organization. “There is a lot of good stuff going on with John Crowley and genetic services for smaller breeds. Funding is always an issue as governments come and go. International activity has dropped off because of the strength of our domestic market. We do get inquiries from other countries, but it is hard to convince them to buy Canadian heifers when they are worth so much.” Promoting Canadian beef genetics internationally continues to be one of the most important roles of the Beef Breeds Council. “We are always trying to increase membership and get more people involved. There is a lot of interest on the research side in the next funding from the federal government.” Garner was in China again this year for eight days as president of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council. The agreement formed with China (referred to in a separate article in this issue) will provide some opportunities for Canadian genetics. Garner also had the opportunity to meet and travel with the Chinese Boehringer

It definitely gives you a broader scope of knowledge about the industry. I think it is useful or I wouldn’t do it but it does put a lot of the workload on everybody else at home. Being involved, especially in the association is so important. You have to help out to the best of your ability. I always thought there was a lot of value in having a strong association and that is why I felt it was very important to help build an organization that would benefit Charolais.” “Charolais is in a solid position in the industry. The demand will continue and quite probably grow in the foreseeable future. I think the breeders have done a really good job of genetic selection and supplying the market with what it is demanding. It has a bright future and the industry recognizes its value in the market place.” Lori & Brodie taking a break during calving season

HERD HEALTH

Selecting the Appropriate Antibiotic Roy Lewis DVM

With most of the older antibiotics still available and several very effective long acting antibiotics in use, the choice for the purebred breeder, rancher or feedlot owner has never been greater. Albeit a few very effective drugs, especially those in combinations, have been removed from the marketplace over the years. The difficulty is, with so many factors hinging on the outcome, deciding which antibiotic to use or, if one is necessary at all, can be a very difficult decision. Hopefully after reading this, the thought process will become clearer. One article cannot hope to clarify every possible combination but in the end work with your veterinarian to decide on a strategy and list of choices for at least the common diseases. Reading the label is always beneficial as diseases for which clearance has been granted are written on the label. This alone gives you a start as to what types of diseases and subsequently what organ systems the antibiotic will get into. The majority of antibiotics, especially the new ones, you need a prescription from your veterinarian in order to use. This insures you know what conditions it is used for, dosage, method of administration, withdrawal etc. You need a VCPR (veterinary client patient relationship) in order to purchase and use this drug. Veterinarians make several decisions before we decide on the appropriate course of treatment. First off, are antibiotics even necessary or will convalescence be all that is necessary. If there is no bacterial infection present or expected in the future, antibiotics may be unnecessary. On large mature cattle or feedlot animals, the meat withdrawals definitely need to be considered. If a condition becomes chronic, slaughter may be an option. We don’t want to burden 34

ourselves and the critter with a long slaughter withdrawal. If daily care is better can we accomplish that or is the next best long acting product the way to go. Other considerations will be the syringability (especially important in winter) dosage amount, safety, means of administration (subcutaneous, oral, intravenous, etc.) and cost of the product per treatment day. The cost per day is really the way to truly compare treatment costs. The longer acting products will cost more because they last longer. The upside is less labor necessary and subsequently less stress on the cattle treating them. This may be nullified if other procedures or painkillers, etc. must be given on a daily basis anyways. The bottom-line is there is lots to consider. The main decision we as veterinarians and you as farmers make is what are the conditions, what organ system is primarily involved and the causative bacteria likely. From these three main things the most appropriate first second and third choice of treatment is made. These three choices might be made in different order on specific farms based on farmer preference, previous results or current research results. Veterinarians will even have different “favorites”. There is almost never an absolute one choice. The times when most antibiotics are used on the cow calf and purebred operations are in young calves and then after weaning. Most other antibiotic usages are for individual cow treatments for things like mastitis, metritis, peritonitis or the true footrot. A few antibiotics are what we call broad-spectrum, meaning they work against a wide array of bacteria in different organ systems. The older sulphonimides as well as newer drugs like “Nuflor” “Resflor” or “Excenel” are fairly broad in their effect. Other drugs are very specific for say treatment of pneumonia. The macrolide Charolais Banner • October 2017

antibiotics are a class of drugs which specifically get into the lungs. Drugs such as Zuprevo, Draxxin, Zactran and Micotil are all macrolides and are used primarily for bacterial pneumonia and only a few other things. All are prescription antibiotics and are excellent for pneumonia, but only a few other things. Veterinarians on your behalf may prescribe them for real specific things such as seminal vesiculitis in young bulls. There will never be a label claim against these oddball infections. That is where the veterinarian’s experience will become invaluable and they will make an extra label prescription. There are two big classes of bacteria gram positive and gram negative. Gram-positive organisms cause Clostridial infections or anthrax. We were always told at veterinary school “P” for positive and “P” for penicillin. This older antibiotic is still quite effective against certain conditions and most veterinarians still use some. Diseases such as blackleg produce toxins and the animal succumbs quickly so prevention in the form of vaccination is the only effective way to prevent this disease. In order to be effective we must pick the right drug, administer it in time and at the right dosage. Weight must be estimated correctly. These antibiotics have been formulated to be effective at the appropriate dosage. Twice as much as necessary will not be more effective and will only cost you more and result in an increased drug withdrawal. The safe rule is if you double the dosage you double the slaughter withdrawal. Always keep that in mind. I would be remiss here if I didn’t mention supplemental drugs to act as pain killers, anti-inflammatory’s, appetite stimulants, etc. In specific disease entities, they are often given in conjunction with antibiotics to continued on page 35


HERD HEALTH, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 34 quicken or improve the response. Again, your veterinarian can advise what works best for them. There are now more pain killers with specific pain conditions on them and most times when antibiotics are given, pain medication will be given right along with it. We also must give medications especially antibiotics only when necessary. There are many conditions when cattle are lame or have traumatic injury where antibiotics may not be necessary and ancillary treatments are given. If there is not an infectious bacterial process evident, there may not be the need for antibiotics.

The selection of the appropriate medication for the specific disease takes some thought. The biggest step saver is recording what products you use (record either the active ingredient or trade name) and list the diseases it is good against as well as the dosage. Have a first and second choice. This will go a long ways to making sure the appropriate product is given especially by new workers. Put up drug dosage charts that are available for most products by the chute. Have the slaughter withdrawal listed as well so drug residues don’t become an issue. This is all too much information to keep in one’s head. Have Charolais Banner • October 2017

epinephrine handy in case you get a drug reaction, have the appropriate syringes and needles and your treatment kit will be complete. Make sure to have a working relationship with your herd veterinarian and together you can decide on the best course of action. Refrigerate the appropriate products and protect others from freezing. Doing all these things should maximize effectiveness of the products. I know in the purebred sector, seldom does one use antibiotics, but it is nice to select the best one for the job at hand to get the best response. 35


INDUSTRY NEWS

Canadian Beef Breeds Council Report Michael Latimer, CBBC Executive Director

The 2nd annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference was held in Calgary this past August andwas attended by over 700 people from a variety of agricultural backgrounds. This conference has become the meeting place for the Canadian beef industry. This is perhaps the best opportunity on a national level for cattle producers to interact with industry organizations, service providers, government officials and most importantly other cattle producers. There were formal business meetings for several organizations, session designed to provide information on farm operations, inspirational keynote speakers and lots of entertainment. As one of the Partners in the conference, CBBC hosted a technical forum focusing on the use of genomics in beef cattle. This featured Dr. Matt Spangler from the University of Nebraska, Dan Moser from American Angus Association, Michelle Miller from Delta Genomics and Lance Leachman from Big Gully Farm.This session was attended by over 130 people demonstrating that there is interest from cattle producers, government, academia and industry to continually improve our system for selecting cattle and using technology. We anticipate hosting a similar

36

forum at the 2018 Canadian Beef Industry Conference in London Ontario which will be held August 1416. The 2018 CBIC theme is ‘Driving Demand’ and I encourage purebred producers to attend and participate in what is sure to be an amazing event. In July, I attended a trade mission led by Canadian Western Agribition to the La Rural (Palermo)livestock show in Buenos Aries Argentina along with Agribition President Bruce Holmquist and Agribition CEO Chris Lane. The intent was to promote Canadian beef cattle genetics and invite cattle breeders from Argentina to attend Agribition. The two prominent breeds in Argentina are Angus and Hereford. The breeds Brangus and Braford have increased their numbers and now play a significant role particularly in northern Argentina. There were Continental breeds exhibited, but were small in numbers and phenotypically were similar to European cattle. The cattle at the show were presented very well and

Charolais Banner • October 2017

the beef in Argentina was excellent. There was renewed optimism from the Argentine cattle breeders as their newly elected government has eliminated an export tax on agricultural products that was imposed by the previous government who followed the Peronist philosophy of Populist Nationalism. The intent of the export tax was to keep food prices low in Argentina. This resulted in the reduction in beef cattle numbers and in some crops which then actually caused the price of food to increase above pre-tax levels. With the tax removed, Argentine cattle breeders indicated they intended to expand their numbers and needed to source new genetic lines for their breeding programs. Given its long history of exchanging beef cattle genetics with Argentina, Canadian producers are in a really good position to benefit from increased trade with Argentina.

WE ALL NEED A LAUGH

Road Tales Candace By

Every once in a while, someone shares a true story that is just too good to keep to yourself! This commercial producer bought a bull from a guy after he had been told he was a little heads up. Both parties hoped he would settle down because he was a really good bull. That was not the case and the day came to move the bull out and this is how the story goes. “My son and I walked around the pasture trailing three bulls towards home, one of which was the flighty one. We were just walking around, talking and talking, in no rush, moving the bulls towards home. “My wife drove over and said, ‘Hey

you guys, are we going to round these bulls up or are you guys going to visit all night?’” “I said, they are going in the right direction, just have a little bit of patience.” We get them down to a point where they go into a willow bush. Thank God my wife came down and parked the truck outside the willow bush. We wandered down to the willow bush to push the bulls through. We just got down there and that one bull spun around and you could tell by the look in his eyes. I said to my son, ‘This ain’t good’ and just as I said it, he hollered ‘Run!’ Well, he took off out of that bush so fast that there was no way that bull was going to get him. I was the only slow turtle left. He took a leap and

flew into the back of the truck and never even touched the sides. He was in the back of the box and I am thinking, that is not happening with me. This old body just isn’t going to fly like that. I grabbed the corner of the box and swung myself around behind it and the bull went running by. My adrenalin and heart were pumping to where I thought they were going to explode. I walked up to the window and said to my wife, “You get out here.” She said, “Why?” I replied, “I know I can out run you, but I know I can’t out run him anymore.” I had to know, “Did your wife drive away?” “Yes she did, and I had to walk a quarter of a mile to get back in the truck.”
