Today’s Decisions Determine Tomorrows Successes Welcome to the 2019! I hope everyone had a great holiday season with family and friends. With Christmas now behind us, it is time to start to make plans for 2019, and many of these decisions can affect your farm and your breeding program for years into the future. I saw a post on Facebook recently, which said that you know you are a purebred cattle breeder if you spend more time deciding on the planned matings you will use in your herd or for an upcoming flush, than you do in deciding what Christmas gifts you buy for your family... I think there is some truth in this! At this time of year, most every Shorthorn breeder in this country is focused on the arrival of a new calf crop. It is a time of anticipation and excitement as each new birth tells the tale of the breeding decisions they made last year. Maybe you just turned your old herd bull out with your cows. Maybe you are expecting the first calves from a new herd sire. Maybe you implanted a set of embryos and are anxiously waiting to see the results. Maybe you bred your cows and heifers to some of the breeds best available AI sires. Maybe you did all or some of these things. Whatever the case, the breeding decisions you make can be a major factor that determines your success and even your income for several years into the future. Here are just a few thoughts I have in regards to what has to be considered in making the breeding decisions in your herd. I wrote some of these in an editorial a few years ago, but I have added to them, and also think they are worth repeating again. I will put a disclaimer on these comments as being mine and only mine. They are intended to be simply, food for thought, and nothing more. You are free to mate your cows and heifers to any sire you wish. That is what makes this business great, in that we have some control over our own success. Of course, your breeding decisions are only one of several
factors that will affect your success. Feeding, promotion, presentation, and customer service are also key factors to a successful breeding herd, but your breeding decisions are one of the key bases on which success is built from. You have to have a good product to feed, promote and present in order to gain success. As the old saying goes, “You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.” 1) Understand your potential target markets. It makes no sense producing something that no one wants, unless you are independently wealthy and the revenue your cow herd produces is not of any concern. If your customers want breeding stock that will work well in commercial operations, then be very conscience of traits like color, birth weight and calving ease. Just remember that if your focus is the commercial producer, they still sell their cattle by the pound. Performance should be a consideration. If your key focus is the production of Shorthorn show steers and heifers, you may want to consider completely different genetics. We are fortunate in this breed to have a wide array of genetics and you can select whatever you think will assist in achieving your own personal goals. Know what the market trends are at present, but more importantly know where they appear to be going. This year’s breeding decisions will result in offspring that will be marketed two or three years, or even further into the future. 2) If you are not happy with the progeny of your present herd sire, replace him before this breeding season. There are lots of outstanding herd sires being offered in test stations, bull sales, or by private treaty by breeders in the next few months. Selection of quality genetics has never been better than it is now. Your herd sire will affect your herd for many years into the future. There are lots of examples of herds Continued on page 8 The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019

CSA News... Happy New Year! It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn from the past to the future. It has been a difficult year weather wise in many parts of the country, however with 2019 calf crops on their way the future always takes on a brighter optimism. Weather aside, 2018 was a good year for our Association and we should take note and feel very encouraged for the future. Although this publication went to print before final 2018 figures were available, as of end November here is where we stand: Annual Membership:

Your CSA Board of Directors is pleased to report that the Association is entering 2019 with a balanced budget.
By Dale Asser Significant work continues on our new Registry (thru Digital Beef) and performance evaluation program (thru IGS) to weed out lingering kinks and discrepancies, however progress is steady. We owe special thanks to Dan Stephenson and Shayla Chappell in our Registry office who are doing a lot of the heavy lifting. Later this month the Directors are having a strategy session to table ideas for 2019 for the purpose of encouraging new membership as well as enhancing the current membership experience. The goal is to come away with concrete plans which all members can unite behind. We are a geographically vast country and the types and sizes of operations vary significantly East to West, region to region, however we can grow and achieve new levels of value and success as a national breed if we work together. I encourage all members to contact their Board member with ideas they have based on their personal experience and outlook on the Shorthorn breed in their area. I hope to see many of you in Quebec, for the Annual General Meeting, Saturday, June 1st.
We are also pleased to announce that the CSA will be offering Shorthorn RFID indicators (tags) starting in early February through the CCIA webstore at https://tags.canadaid.ca or by calling the CCIA Client Support Team at 1.877.909.2333. The ComfortEar® Shorthorn indicator will be the regular CCIA yellow RFID button with a purple Shorthorn detailed back. CSA members and purchasers of transferred Shorthorn animals are eligible for these distinctive tags. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.

Today’s Decisions Determine Tomorrows Successes where a particular sire made a herd. There are also lots where a particular sire destroyed a herd, or at least set it back for a few years. Your herd sire is one of the most important assets your cattle enterprise has. Don’t settle for anything short of the best sire you can afford. I cannot think of any investment that returns bigger dividends than a good herd sire. There is an old adage “you should buy a good herd bull when you find one, not when you need one.” While this was coined decades ago, it has probably never been as true as it is today. Forecasts for the Canadian beef industry look very positive into the foreseeable future. In order to maximize your returns, you also have to invest in genetics that will allow you to produce a product that is in demand. There is no time like the present to do this! 3) We are fortunate to have a wide array of excellent sires available through AI. With this being said, we must also remember that there is a constant need for new genetics to be available. I would urge anyone who has a good breeding herd sire or one with outstanding performance and profile, to consider collecting semen from him. Collect exportable semen if at all possible. It will cost you more money to collect exportable semen, but we have to remember that the world is now our marketplace and Canadian Shorthorn genetics are being sought by cattlemen from around the world. Remember that you also need to use exportable semen to produce exportable embryos. I do not remember any time in the past where so many great genetic choices are available. There are lots of excellent synchronization programs available now that reduces the work involved with artificial insemination. Artificial insemination provides the opportunity to virtually mate each female in your herd to specific sires. In order to do this properly, you have to have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each female and of each sire you are considering using. Page 8
4) Use balanced multiple trait selection. Select for optimums in most every trait, including growth EPDs, milk and eye appeal. Like most things in life, optimum or middle of the road is a good place to be. Oftentimes selection of middle of the road traits leads to more complete cattle. They are usually cattle that will work in many different environments and in different breeding programs. Single trait selection is usually not recommended except in extreme cases where improvement in a single trait is a key to improving your herd. 5) Don’t be afraid to use new genetics if you think they will advance your breeding program toward its target and goals. Some breeders continue to use the same genetics over and over again, expecting to see improvement in their herd quality. It usually doesn’t happen this way. You know what they say about people who do the same thing over and over expecting to get different results… well I think you know the answer! At the same time, don’t just use new genetics without exploring what they could offer. 6) The same can be said about using older genetics. In the past few years, there have been many producers searching for and using genetics from past decades. I will be the first to say that many sires from the past can be very useful breeding instruments today. I have used some of these sires myself, and it has been very interesting to see how these sires from the past niche with some of today’s best genetics. I also see some breeders using semen from any sire from the past. I would suggest that some of these genetics were poor then… and they are poor now. When we were feeding cattle on our farm we collected a great amount of carcass data on the progeny of many of these sires. Some of these sires produced offspring with extremely poor carcasses. I remember lots of Shorthorn and Shorthorn cross finished steers with rib eye areas less than 10 square inches
Continued from page 4 in size, and heifers from the same sires with 8 square inch rib eye areas. It was sires like these that created the great discounts for Shorthorn influenced cattle in the auction markets during that era. Even though this breed has seen amazing improvement in our carcass data, performance, and feed efficiency, it has taken decades for the image of the breed to see the improvement it deserves. I like to think that most of this is now a part of our past, but there are still a few cattle buyers who think of Shorthorns of 30 or 40 years ago when they see Shorthorns today. I hope we are all careful that we don’t move backwards in this regard. We don’t need to, and don’t want to go back there, so I urge everyone to use some caution when using sires from the past. If you do decide to use older genetics, study your lessons and make educated breeding decisions. 7) Embryo transplant is now very commonplace in the beef business. It is now possible to flush your best female and implant the embryos in some of your poorer producing females. It is also possible to purchase embryos that combine the genetics from some excellent females of the breed with some of the best sires in the breed, at very reasonable prices. Embryo transplant is another method you can use to fast track the improvement of your herd. 8) I would urge every breeder to take the time to re-examine the goals you have for your breeding program. If you have never set any definite goals, sit down and write them out. Review them on a regular basis and see if you are moving closer to achieving them. If you feel you are not making the progress you want, consider what you need to do to help achieve them faster. The goal of a true cattle breeder should be to make each generation of cattle produced of higher quality than the previous one. Don’t be afraid to accept the mistakes you make in your breeding program. Everyone has made them but the most successful breeders make corrections, The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019
learn from their mistakes and move on. I think that the progress the Shorthorn breed has made in recent times has been simply amazing. There is much more that can be done, and we should never stop seeking improvement. 9) Let us all remember that we need to promote this breed whenever possible. We can take Shorthorns for granted because we have raised them for a long time, or just because we have had some connection to the breed. The fact that there are many people in the beef industry who do not understand what
Shorthorns can offer them, is brought home to me several times every year. Just a few weeks ago, I imported some Shorthorns from the US. Another cattleman, who happened to be at the border at the same time as I was, asked me if he could see the cattle I was bringing to Canada. He said it had been several years since he had seen any Shorthorns. (Yes, I thought of asking him if he had been raised under a rock!) A few minutes later, the CFIA vet, who was fresh out of vet school, asked me why these cattle had no horns, yet were still called Shorthorns. In our
The Canadian Shorthorn Association is pleased to announce that Royce Moellenbeck of Bell M Farms at Englefeld, Saskatchewan and Kayla Sharp of Double Star Stock Farm at Lacombe, Alberta are the recipients of the 2018 Canadian Shorthorn Association Ian McRae Memorial Scholarship.

discussion, he said he had never heard of the Shorthorn breed before. This gave me lots of food for thought for a long ways down the road home. We cannot ever quit promoting this breed! Good luck with your calving season, and good luck with making your breeding decisions for this year.

What does this mean for Canadian Shorthorn members? Basic SNP Parentage Verification test will now be based on a panel of 200 SNPs, double what was available in the past, which will allow for better accuracy. The turnaround time for all tests requested will be 21 calendar days. This will be a significant improvement for our 30K and 50K and genetic condition tests which used to take 4 – 6 weeks. Now, all test results, including basic SNP Parentage Verification, will be reported within 21 calendar days from the date that the lab receives your DNA samples. To make DNA sampling easier, and to try and avoid having unusable samples submitted, the following will be acceptable DNA submission options: - You can still submit hair samples – please ensure that the samples are wrapped in tape or fastened on hair cards (note that loose samples are going to be phased out) - You can submit a tissue sample using Allflex tissue sampling units (TSUs) - You can submit a blood blot on a blood card - You can submit a semen straw Hair cards, TSUs and blood cards are available for order through the registry office. The best news with the change is that the costs for testing have been reduced in most cases, especially with the higher density 30K and 50K tests which is what is required for Genomic EPD’s. The CSA board is working on finalizing our new pricing and it will be available on the web-site or from the registry office when you order your tests. The process remains the same - please contact the registry office with your testing request, including animal ID’s. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-717-2581 and we will send you the proper forms to include with your DNA submissions. Samples will still go to the same location in Edmonton, Alberta. Please don’t send samples to the lab without the proper form(s) from the registry. Without these forms the lab will not be able to process your test requests. Sending DNA samples to the lab without the correct forms can result in delays. Page 14

Our embryo sales have been strong in recent weeks, but we will still have a great offering of approximately 60-70 grade 1 exportable embryos on offer. These embryo lots will represent some of the best donor females we have gathered, along with some of the best sires in the breed from around the world. Since our ET program started in 2003, we have sold over 2400 embryos to 14 countries around the world. Embryos represent an economical way to add new genetics to your herd, and they can be shipped most anywhere at much lower costs than live animals can be. We will also be offering a few choice lots of semen that are hard to find. The complete sale offering will be available for viewing by mid January.

Century Lane Farms
By Grant Alexander until the calves have been weaned and they only receive supplemental hay if the pasture grass gets short. The cowherd is then moved closer to home in December and placed on the corn, grown to be grazed in the winter months. They do feed some hay to the cowherd while they are grazing the corn, and they are only fed a full hay ration, when the corn grazing is done. The Goudyâ€™s say that this system has really worked well for them and they have found that calving on grass has allowed their cows and heifers to rebreed quickly. They also feel that having Shorthorn genetics in many of their cows, has helped improve the fertility in their herd, and they always have very high conception rates.
Century Lane Farms Ltd. is a farming operation that has been in the Goudy family since it was homesteaded by William Goudy in 1906. It is situated approximately 5 miles north of the town of Stoughton in southeast Saskatchewan. Stoughton is a farming community located 140 km south east of Regina and it is also centrally located being 60 km east of Weyburn, 60 km north of Estevan and 60 km west of Carlyle. This farm has seen four generations of Goudy ownership and management with the fifth generation on the way. Century Lane is owned by Graham and Valerie Goudy and their son Brett, his wife Crystal and their three children Sianna, Jaxon and Cash. Brett has a job off the farm, but is there whenever possible to help with the farm work. They are very active in the day to day decisions made in regards to the management of their cattle operation. Brettâ€™s brother John and his wife Julia and family also play a key part for their operation. Brett and John both have jobs and family also live close enough to help on the farm whenever time allows. This is a true family farming operation! Shorthorn cattle came to the farm very shortly after it was settled in 1906. Since then, the cow herd has had a strong influence of Shorthorn genetics. Today, the herd consists of 300 cows. They have been expanding their herd in recent years and keep approximately 50 heifers for herd replacements each year, so new genetics are constantly being added to their cow herd. The cows and heifers are calved together in May and June, on pastures close to the farm yard. They check the herd during the day during the calving season and have had very few calving problems. Graham and Brett say that the Shorthorn and Shorthorn cross cows have excellent mothering ability and they also provide calving ease that works well for their operation. Once the calving is over in June, the cows and calves are moved to their summer pastures where they will remain until early November. They are then moved into one group again and allowed to graze pastures that have been rested through the summer months. The cows stay here Page 18
The calves are weaned in late November and they sell about one half of the steers at that time. The remainder of the calves are backgrounded through the winter, on oats and hay. Once the replacement heifers are selected, they then sell the remainder of the calves in March and April. They sell at auction and have found that their Shorthorn and Shorthorn cross calves have been accepted very well by the cattle buyers. Graham says this has been especially true in recent years, as feedlots are recognizing the feed efficiency and marbling traits that Shorthorns offer. He says that their calves usually sell at or near the top prices of the market on the day they sell. He also says that they have been very pleased with the performance of the calves they get from their Shorthorn herd sires. When asked why they have continued to use Shorthorn bulls in their herd, Graham and Brett say that they have found that their Shorthorn bulls are aggressive breeders with excellent longevity. They have found that barring injury, that can happen with any breed of bull, the Shorthorn bulls stay in their herd longer than most of the other breeds they have used. They are extremely pleased with the soundness, especially in their feet and legs, that they get in their Shorthorn bulls. Several of the Shorthorn bulls have reached eight or more years of age, and occasionally they have to send an older bull to market, that is still a very sound breeding bull, because they have so many females related to him. They do say this doesnâ€™t happen as often with the bulls they have used from other popular breeds. The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019
– Over a Century of Using Shorthorns in a Commercial Operation Because of the importance of hybrid vigor that comes from crossbreeding, the Goudy’s continue to use a few herd sires from other breeds. They say that this also allows them to appreciate the docility that Shorthorns offer as well. Docility is a very important trait to this family operation, as they need to have cattle that are handled easily when so many people, of all ages, are involved from time to time. The Shorthorns have provided this trait in spades! For the past few years, the Goudy family have hired Samantha Petterson, who lives nearby, to help with the day to day operation of the farm. Sam’s infectious love of Shorthorns is very evident and she carries literally dozens of pictures on her phone of her favorite Shorthorns at Century Lane. She also takes pride in giving as many as possible a nickname that stays with the animal while it is on the farm.

The Goudy family of Century Lane were honored at Canadian W e s t e r n Agribition in November as Commercial Producer of the Year by the Saskatchewan Shorthorn Association. They were very grateful to have been selected for this award, and I think they are also a very worthy family to have received it. I asked Brett if they planned on continuing to use Shorthorn genetics in their herd. He replied that he could see no good reason to stop using Shorthorns. “After all, if it ain’t broke, we shouldn’t have to fix it.”

The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019
Sustainability comes in many forms - all of them important We live off the land. I live off the land. You live off the land. Sustainability is vital to the health and welfare of our planet, and to the ever-changing agricultural industry. Here’s why. Sustainability is environmental. It’s knowing that a profit is imperative to the survival of my family farm, but taking care of our land and soil is even more important. We know there is such a thing as too much fertilizer and too many chemicals. I believe the value of crop rotations can’t even be monetized to its full extent, because it’s that imperative to the longevity of the land. Agriculture employs methods such as solar energy, wind energy, and hydroelectricity. Oftentimes, farmers are branded as not environmentally aware — but in my hometown county solar energy is beginning to power our irrigation pivots. We live off the land, so in this industry we really know the importance of our environment. Sustainability is also financial. It’s the ability to go into a local bank to take out an operating loan which can be used to finance the inputs to grow a successful crop, all the while having a trust relationship deep enough with your banker to actually approve the loan. It’s knowing that we have to keep our borrowing costs low in order to avoid dumping our debt on future generations. Advancements, such as crop insurance, have allowed our industry to continue on in the tough years by protecting us from financial disaster. Even in my short lifespan, I’ve witnessed the importance of crop insurance. Conversations with my farming friends no longer involve whether or not they should be insuring their crops. It’s an option that western Canadian farmers often take for granted. I remember growing up in my small town of Bow Island, when we would watch the storm clouds roll up, while keeping an eye on the weather radar. Although this was (and is) an anxiety-ridden event — crop insurance has allowed us to continue farming — even when baseball-sized hail comes roaring through a once thriving chickpea crop. When we face a drought year, like many across the Prairies witnessed last year, and the durum is heading out at ankle high at the end of May, we don’t have to worry much about whether or not we’ll be able to put a crop in the ground the following year. Sustainability is technological, too. Today this can mean pretty cool advancements like GPS, drones, and automated tractors. My dad and I have sat on the edge of a field, scouting nearby fields from a bird’s eye view in a quick moment, without moving an inch. Of course, we followed up by putting our feet to the ground and actually walking through the field. However, it’s amazing what technology can now do. Technology has given us the ability to build new infrastructure. The movement from the horse and plow to the first tractor allowed agriculture to become more sustainable. The first irrigation pivot in southern Alberta did the same, all the while feeding back and contributing to the economy and communities. Growing up on a now almost half-and-half dryland/irrigation farm, I have experienced first hand what irrigation alone has done The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019

for the feasibility of our industry, and what it has contributed to some of our small-but-thriving villages. Without the ability, through stable governments, to build our local towns, our roads, our education facilities, our trucks and machinery, and different modes of infrastructure, agriculture simply wouldn’t be what it is today. Sustainability is our human resources as well. We need to continue to provide some of the best education in the world to attract and retain our future industry professionals. I believe that in order to continue this successful education trend we are on, we need to continue cutting-edge research and to ensure the innovative ideas are communicated to the students. Students receiving cutting-edge information, means our industry is implementing it as well. However — it’s important to keep yourself up to date and current, even if it’s been decades since you’ve sat in a classroom. Attending conferences, field days, plot hops, and trade shows are some of the best things you can do as an industry professional to keep yourself in the loop. As a bonus, delicious local food and drinks are often included in these days, so can you really go wrong? Sustainability is access to medical resources. In order to take care of our land, crops, and farms, we need to take care of ourselves. We have to be able to go to a nearby hospital when the unfortunate happens. No matter how safe we are being on our farms, accidents happen, and part of having a sustainable farm is being able to have medical facilities and infrastructure close by. However, it’s not just our physical health that we need to take care of — it’s our mental health as well. Suicide numbers have increased, and there are countless reports of farmers feeling isolated. And no, this isn’t just millennials feeling this way. In a recent report across Canada, 35 per cent of producers met the criteria for depression, 45 per cent for high stress, and 58 per cent for anxiety. But on top of that, 40 per cent of producers say that they would feel uncomfortable when it comes to talking about their mental health, because of how others may portray them. Sustainability is creating a safe space to come together and help each other. It’s acknowledging the need for help is not a weakness. Finally, sustainability is working together. It’s a whole ecosystem of things working together. Sustainability in agriculture is an imperative interconnected system. In order to continue to advance agriculture and keep it moving forward, we as an industry need to continue to work together as one community. It’s not only making our lands and farms viable for future generations — but showing the future generations exactly how important agriculture is and why they may one day want to devote their lives to this exciting and challenging lifestyle. That’s why sustainability is so important to Canadian agriculture - and agriculture as a whole - so we can all continue to live off of our prosperous land. Taken from BIXSCO.COM Page 21
Resuscitating Calves Both at the dairy and beef level there have been many ways discussed and shared with and between producers regarding the best way to stimulate a weak calf that perhaps doesn’t want to breathe. With calving season just around the corner I will share some of my experiences as to what works and what doesn’t and highlight procedures that are worth doing and others that are a waste of time. None require a lot of expense and saving one extra calf these days converts into dollars down the line, plus it is doing the right thing. The rewards can feel very good. There are many reasons calves come out slow and weak and recognizing when these conditions might occur could give you a heads up. Every time you must give assistance for either fetal oversize and a harder pull or where a malpresentation occurs one must be aware that time is running out and a weaker, barely alive calf is a definite possibility. Other instances include where the cow has been sick and losing weight or there has been some abnormality during pregnancy. Remember a cow losing body condition in late pregnancy could be carrying twins so after any assisted calving it is good to carefully examine the uterus for either tears or another calf. If you find another calf, assist in its delivery immediately.
by Roy Lewis DVM does no good and in fact does harm as all the organs push down on the chest by gravity and actually make it much more difficult to breath. The fluid that does come out is generally draining out from the stomachs (rumen). You are much better to get the calf in a sitting up, frog legged position or with both back legs pulled ahead so both lungs can get air equally, much as would happen in a standing calf. Extend the neck forward to open up the airways and then go to work with what I will now describe. Any large amounts of mucous around the mouth you want to wipe away. There are some good calf resuscitators out there that can simply bath the area in extra oxygen that helps if breathing is not strong. Some of these will even provide suction as well. Mouth to mouth resuscitation pretty much does nothing as the air simply goes down the esophagus and inflates the stomach so doesn’t get into the lungs where it needs to go. You are best, if breathing is slow with a stronger heartbeat, to stimulate breathing by either sticking a straw up the nostril, pouring cold water in the ear or putting cold snow in the ear to essentially irritate the calf and get him going. Try the straw next time on a normal calving and see the quick response you get. If there is no response the calf is in trouble and the only thing I have
There are several forms of resuscitation or trying to make it easier to establish breathing with the calf. Often especially if you see there is a strong heartbeat you must establish breathing and get oxygenation to the found that has worked is a respiratory blood. One thing we know for sure is stimulant. This used to be doxopram the old “hanging calves” to get fluid out so your veterinarian can look for Page 22
respiratory stimulants and hopefully find one, but needs to script it to you, as it may only be approved for other species. In order to be helpful you must have it close by in your calving kit and readily accessible. Time is of the essence for sure as a few seconds at this critical point may make the difference. Having a way to bathe the calf in oxygen may also be helpful and there are several masks and forced ventilation devices that may be worth looking into. Currently researchers at the vet school in Calgary are pursuing ways to positively ventilate calves similar to what they do in humans. They use a laryngeal masking apparatus or LMA, similar to what the paramedics and first responders use. This is showing promise. Blowing in the nostrils simply pushes air into the stomachs so doesn’t accomplish anything. The need to stimulate calves should be the exception in today’s commercial or purebred cow calf operations. Calving problems have been greatly reduced so unless it is a hard calving or there has been a delay in getting the calf out such as occurs with a full breech birth for instance, resuscitation shouldn’t be a routine occurrence. With hard calvings it sometimes pays to stop pulling and let the calf get a few breaths when the rib cage is out before you pull the tight hips through. The calf may bellor as they are alive then and feel the pain so be aware of this response. If you are getting too many weak calves one must look at several factors in the herd management. Is intervention too slow, especially in the case of heifers? Once the calving process has started and regardless of if the waterbag has been broken, time is a ticking. An old misconception with producers is they have lots of time if the waterbag has not been broken and that simply isn’t true. Intervention in one, to one and a half hours if no progress has been made, is a good rule. With breech births (backwards with both back legs The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2019
ahead) and torsions we know often that time is running out so being ready to stimulate the calf is imperative. Once the tail head of the calf comes through the pelvis in a backwards calving, the navel is essentially broken and the calf tries to start breathing. This is where a
faster pull from that point forward will save calves. That is why you always assist a backwards calf where possible. Weak calves may be the result of nutrition and vitamin and mineral deficiencies or imbalances, so we must
always make sure body condition score is good on the cows and heifers and they are on a good mineral/vitamin program. These deficiencies happen as the calf is developing so if a deficiency is diagnosed, it is not a quick fix to get the deficiency reversed. For example, selenium deficiencies can lead to the weak calf syndrome and iodine deficiencies lead to a goiter and weak or dead calves born. If a calf is stillborn or weak and dies soon after birth, a lot can be gained by a postmortem and having tissues sent away to help with the diagnosis. This could shed light on potential problems and allow some time to correct them. I have also seen the need to resuscitate when the water bag fails to break and the calf can drown in essentially a cup of fetal fluids. This can happen in too quick a birth and the water bag has essentially not had enough force on it to break. Watch for these cases as well. If placenta is starting to come first, again time is running out and you may
already be too late, but if any sign of life get the calf out as quickly as possible. One last word of advice on delivering a calf and preempting the need to resuscitation. Check the viability of the calf by putting fingers in their mouth to see how good the swallowing or gag reflex is. If this is very weak you can be sure the calf will be sluggish when delivered. Also if the calf is overly active and thrashing around this could be a sign time is running out and they are getting oxygen deprived. There is a need to get them out as soon as possible and use your resuscitation skills. In summary, be ready with the resuscitation techniques mentioned and be ever vigilant of the cases that predispose newborn calves to need reviving. You and your veterinarian, when called, can hopefully save more valuable newborn calves this spring. Hopefully the 2019 calving season treats you well.ďƒ§
In Memory... MARJORIE LEHMANN January 25, 1935 - November 22, 2018 Marjorie Grace Lehmann was born in Kincaid, Saskatchewan on January 25, 1935 to Carl and Lois Frostad.
