The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2020


Time is A Valuable Commodity… And it Continues Marching On HC Cruiser 59C

We would like to thank Shadybrook Farm Ltd., West Brome, QC for recently purchasing Cruiser from Dana Gilliard (RDG Shorthorns) and us. Cruiser is one of the stoutest bulls we have ever seen and we can’t wait to see what he does in this world famous herd. Several sons and daughters will be offered in the Sun Country Sale on March 10th. Our Sun Country catalog will be mailed in early February.

HC Gasper 55G

A late March son of Cruiser that had many people from other breeds coming to the Shorthorn barn at Agribition. He was one of the youngest bulls shown but his thickness, style and muscle pattern, along with an actual BW of 73 lbs got the attention of some pretty good cowboys. He has continued to get even better since the show. Our 14th Horseshoe Creek “Frozen in Time” online sale of embryos and semen will be held January 3031, 2020 at www.edjeauctions.com. On offer will be approximately 60 grade 1 embryos and the majority will be exportable to most countries in the world. There will also be several semen lots from bulls from the past, some of which are very hard to find. In our past online sales, many new herds have been established in numerous countries. Pictured below is the 2019 Canadian National Champion Female who was produced from an embryo purchased in our 2018 online sale by Dungannon Shorthorns - the Rigney family, Westlock, AB. We will be offering full sib embryos to this heifer in this online sale! The sale catalog for our online sale will be posted on our website and at www.edjecauctions.com by mid January. This is still one of the most economical way to add genetics from some of the best bloodlines we have collected from around the world.

This is Next Year Country With 2019 now gone, what can we say about this year other than “what was that?” or “well at least it didn’t kill us!” For many agricultural producers all across this country, this was one doozer of a year. 2019 made many of us wonder exactly what normal was anymore. Some parts of Canada got through the last year unscathed, but many others are hoping it is a long time before it shows up again! But we made it through and we are all very optimistic that 2020 will return us all to better times. The phrase “hope springs eternal” is so very true in this business. Despite everything that was thrown at us, there were a lot of positive things in this year as well. We have continued to see cattle producers pay more for quality when they see it. This is happening in every breed, including this breed. This should be reason enough for each and every breeder of pedigree cattle to make sure they are using the best breeding stock they can afford, to ensure that they can cash in on the higher prices from their calf crops. Just a few weeks ago, I read that there are 100,000 less cows in Canada in 2019 than there were 15 years ago. This means that we will need 20% less bulls to service these females next year. If you are producing breeding bulls, this means you better make sure the quality of the bulls you offer is the highest you can possibly produce. It also means we all need to cull harder in order to ensure that we are offering a product that will work for our customers. I expect this trend to continue for many different reasons including the ages of many cattle producers and the economic realities we all have placed on us by markets and government policy. This business has never been easy and it isn’t going to get much easier in the future. By the time most of you read this, some will be well into calving the 2020 calf crop. Others will be still getting ready to start the arrival of their calves this year. I don’t think I will ever get to the

place where I think of the miracle of new birth as being ordinary. Every birth is a special event. This is also the time to start making your breeding plans for this year as well. If you think the calf crop needs some improvement, now is the time to replace your herd bull as there will be many outstanding bulls offered this spring. If you are thinking of using AI on all or part of your herd, there are many outstanding choices of sires that have semen available. I think most everyone desires to raise the best cattle they can, so let’s all go into this year with a plan. It doesn’t cost any more to feed a good cow than it does to feed a poor cow, and the rewards of higher returns from your calf crop make it worthwhile. There are many things in the beef business that we cannot control as we are so dependent on weather and markets. What we can control is the quality of the cattle we produce, so by improving our product, we are actually making our lives a little easier and a little better. I hope everyone has a wonderful calving season, and I look forward to visiting with many of you at the spring sales. Until next time, Grant

CSA News... SHORTHORN PRIDE As one year comes to an end, a new year rises with the usual challenges and hopefully, unexpected happy surprises. Shorthorn members in Canada wear their breed’s pride and passion on their sleeves – we see it all the time at shows, sales and coffee shops all across the country. Let’s not forget that other breeds are as anxious as we are to advertise their worthy product and frequently touted measurements of success are sales averages and breed registration numbers. The latter is where we need to pull up our socks. While 2019’s final numbers at this printing are not yet available, to date our enrollments are down a bit and registrations more so. This is perplexing! Why are registration numbers not almost equal to enrollments? Virtually every cow has a calf but we are not diligent about registering all of them. Remember, there is no additional cost to register a calf, record weaning and yearling weights and complete transfers. These registrations are very important to show off our breed’s popularity in the Canadian industry because popularity generates growth which translates into increased value. Let’s try to get our registrations completed on time and boost our numbers for all to see. Shayla in our Registry office is anxious to help everyone with the smallest to the biggest questions they have about

By Dale Asser registering. And I ask that we go the extra step and register/transfer our Shorthorns that have been sold to nonmembers and mail them the pedigree. I know they may have said don’t bother, but maybe, just maybe, one of those buyers takes a real fancy to their new Shorthorn and who knows, buys some Shorthorn semen to breed her and they are on their way to Shorthorn membership with their first pedigree in hand. It’s a long shot but many of the world’s greatest gifts and inventions were even longer shots. Show off your Register today.

Pride.

By the time this magazine reaches you, we will be wrapping up our Canadian Junior Shorthorn Association Leadership Forum in Toronto. We want to congratulate the juniors that took the time to participate and we are looking forward to working on implementing ideas and programs based on the sessions we have at the Forum. Many thanks to all of the supporters of our junior program and especially to those who contributed to initiatives this fall for funding the Forum including the Diamond All That Glitters Sale donation heifer auction and Darnell Fornwald, First Class Cattle Marketing who won the heifer and then donated her back to be sold; Anwender Cattle Co. embryo raffle; and Shadybrook Shorthorns. Happy New Year.

One Thing Off My Bucket List - Part 2 - England I had no intention of writing an article regarding my trip to Ireland and England in August, 2019, until I got back home and reflected on the good herds of Shorthorns I had seen on this trip and the influence in these herds from Canadian Shorthorns. I shared the first part regarding my few days in Ireland in the Fall issue of this magazine and here is the England part of this trip. After deciding to write these articles, I was wishing I had made a few more notes so I could refresh my memory. One of the hardest things to do when writing it, was deciding which pictures to use in it, as there were many pictures of excellent cattle to chose from. When I contacted Martyn Moore shortly after I had booked my flight to Dublin, to let him know that I was thinking of going to visit him, he replied that he would be pleased to meet me at Heathrow airport in London, and that he would also act as my tour guide for any time I was in England. Martyn Moore and I had become friends several years ago, and this had led to us partnering on several donor cows that I maintain here on our farm. I told him that I did not want to impose on his gracious hospitality by expecting him to tour me all across England but he basically just told me to decide how many days I planned to be in England, and he would try to arrange a tour of some herds. This turned out to be a wonderful gift on his part as I was able to see much more than I could have ever seen on my own. I will be forever grateful for what he did for me. After meeting Martyn at Heathrow in London, we immediately headed west to visit with Simon Bradley Farmer and Tina Russell at Stanford Park Farm, Farington in Oxfordshire. Simon and Tina manage the Stanford Park estate and their Shorthorn herd. They are also able to maintain a smaller herd of their own Shorthorns here as well, which are known under the Longfield prefix. The Stanford Park herd is one of the largest Shorthorn herds in the UK and probably in all of Europe. I was impressed with the well fleshed uniform set of cows in this herd, and they all had excellent udders and fat calves by their side. One of the highlights of my visit here was viewing Kassam of Longfield, a beautiful red neck roan bull that won several shows in England last year. I was very impressed with Kassam and he definitely was amongst the best bulls I saw in 2019, anywhere. His pedigree contains a real cross section

of the worlds Shorthorn bloodlines as he has Canadian, American, Australian and British Shorthorns in the first few generations. Also impressive were the beautiful facilities that

Cows at Stanford Park

have been built to house the farm animals. A most impressive herd and a most impressive farm! As the day came to a close, Simon and Tina treated us to a wonderful meal at a local tavern. There was lots of laughter and discussion of Shorthorns and we had a great time. After dinner, Martyn and I headed back to his farm where we stayed for my first night in England. Martyn Moore had recently purchased a new farm and had just got his Wenmar herd moved there. Because of having limited facilities on the new farm, he had greatly reduced his herd numbers until he could get some new barns built. At the time of my visit in August, he was still waiting for approval from the local authorities as to whether he could erect his new buildings where he wanted them. To me, this was different than what I was used to, as here in Saskatchewan, we build a building wherever we want it without having to get approval from anyone. I was pleased to hear that the building had finally been approved and that the building crew was erecting it in late November, even though this meant that Martyn would have to cancel his planned trip to Canadian Western Agribition. The Wenmar herd has a big influx of Canadian Shorthorn genetics as Martyn has used embryo transplant extensively and currently has 12 donor cows that are owned in partnership with myself and maintained here on our farm. When they are flushed, we split the embryos and he has his share shipped to the UK. He has also purchased several other flushes in Canada from females owned by Shadybrook, Bender Shorthorns, Dixon Farms and Hill Haven. Martyn also sells many embryos throughout the UK and other European countries so one could say that Canadian Shorthorn genetics are being shipped far and wide around the world. In the past year, Martyn has used three ET bulls that were bred in Canada. Two are from DF Godiva

Cows at Martyn Moore’s

After viewing the cowherd at Wenmar, we jumped back in the Land Rover and headed for the north of England to visit with Andrew and Caroline Ivenson’s Sandwick herd. The Ivenson’s farm is fairly close to the border of Scotland and to say it is a rugged part of the UK is an understatement. After viewing a couple pastures close to the yard, we were presented with a couple 4-wheelers and headed out to see

Wenmar Leonardo

some more pastures. I happened to be riding on the back of the 4-wheeler that Martyn Moore was driving and after hanging on while we visited two more pastures, I looked at where we had to go next and I decided I had better just get off before I fell off. When Martyn and Andrew returned, Martyn told me that I had definitely made the right decision as he did not think either of us would have got back if we had tried to ride together. The first pasture we viewed at Sandwick was a beautiful set of yearling replacement heifers that were being developed on grass. They were very uniform, sound and very broody looking females. I am quite sure that many of this group will become the center of their herd once they enter production. In the second pasture were a group of cows along with their latest herd sire purchase, Warmington Chacky 28S. This The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2020

beautiful roan bull is a grandson of Alta Cedar Perfect Storm 11U and he is a massive sire who patrolled the pasture like a stud horse. He is a well muscled free moving bull, with excellent length and he should definitely leave a positive mark on this herd. In the next pasture, we viewed another excellent set of females being mated to Glenisla Jack Frost. This white bull was also a most impressive herd sire and his calves were some of the best we saw on this visit. Jack Frost combines Australian, Canadian and British bloodlines in his pedigree. This bull is very sound and has thickness and fleshing ability. I didn’t make the trip to see the next set of females that was running with an ET son of Shadybrook Qantas 2B that had been purchased from Martyn Moore. Martyn said that he was very pleased with how this bull was developing and that he felt he was going to be a tremendous breeding bull. After having a wonderful mid afternoon lunch and a great visit in the Iverson home, we decided we better make some miles, as the following day was going to be one of the biggest days we would have on this trip. We headed down into central England again where we spent the night. Day 3 of our England trip started with a visit to a relatively new Shorthorn herd owned by Gerard te Lintelo near Walsingham, England. Gerard has had a very distinguished career as a veterinarian who established a very successful animal hospital that specialized in surgery. In describing his animal hospital, he says it is very similar to the Supervet hospital on TV. Gerard had just recently sold this hospital to the Mars family (of Mars chocolate bar fame) and purchased an additional farm next to his, so that he now has an excellent farm base. He has started to establish a purebred Shorthorn herd as well a pedigreed sheep flock. At the time of selling the animal hospital, he had 120 people employed in it. This animal hospital dealt with the most extreme surgical issues and it was equipped with all the latest equipment including its own MRI machine. On meeting Gerard, it was immediately apparent that he was an extremely intelligent man with a very friendly manner. Continued on page 14 Page 13


One Thing Off My Bucket List - Part 2 - England His enthusiasm about the Shorthorn breed is infectious and after viewing the Shorthorn herd he is assembling, he is going to make a major mark on the breed. The herd he is developing is unique in that he is using mainly embryo transplant to establish it, and all the ET calves we saw were Canadian genetics. What a beautiful set of calves he had! He has about 20 ET calves on the ground in 2019 mainly sired

Gerard te Lintelo with a Fire Storm heifer calf

by Hill Haven Fire Storm 28C, Crooked Post Stockman 4Z, Northern Legend 3N and Saskvalley Pioneer 126P and he has many more planned to arrive in 2020. I would like to know his secret, as he says he thinks he had a pregnancy

continued from page 13

Our second stop that day was at Graham Hunt’s Sowerby Parks Farm near Thirsk in North Yorkshire. Many Canadians will remember Graham as he has visited several Canadian Shorthorn herds on a few occasions. Graham and his son Sam are developing an excellent herd and they exhibit at shows in many parts of the UK. Graham took us first to see the show animals that were in a small pasture near the house and barns. It was easy to see why they have been successful showing their herd, as they had some exceptional animals in this pasture. A yearling bull really caught my eye and I immediately asked Graham who he was. Graham proudly announced that he was named Sotherby Parks Magnus, an ET son of Bell M Foreman 30A and HC Melba Niam 8T. This meant that this bull was from an embryo I had sold to him. This bull had won a few shows so far and I suggested that he was good enough to be an AI sire. Interesting that a few months after our visit, Graham sent me a message to inform me that a major AI stud in the UK were very interested in purchasing him. The herd at Sotherby Parks was split into five pastures, each of which was filled with very good cows with excellent calves at side. The herd bulls in each pasture were excellent

rate of over 90% on the embryos he implanted last year. I mentioned to him that he would have more Canadian bred Shorthorns in his herd by the time he finished calving in 2020, than most Shorthorn breeders in Canada would have. It was very obvious that Gerard spends a lot of time with his calves, as they were the quietest set of calves I think I have ever seen. Each and every calf came up to us and wanted to be scratched. Because we had a very full day lined up, we had to depart, even though we could have visited with Gerard and his family for much longer.

beef bulls. Millerston Fine Ideal is a well-muscled, smooth made red bull that is sired by Eionmor Ideal 50P. In another pasture, we saw Uppermill Supreme, who is yet another son of Carrarock Chalkie 1E. Chalkie is sired by Alta Cedar Perfect Storm and is presently the senior herd sire at Tommy Stanton’s Caramba herd on the western shores of Ireland. After seeing several sons throughout our visit in the UK, it is very evident that this bull is doing a great job. Supreme is a beautiful light roan bull that is stamping his calves with amazing style. In yet another pasture we saw Heir Apparent of Longfield, who had been purchased from Tommy Staunton in Ireland, where he had been a herd sire. This dark roan sire was bred by Simon Bradley Farmer and Tina Russell and had an excellent show career in the UK. This is yet another impressive bull we saw that had some Canadian breeding in The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2020


his background. His grand dam is Winalot Beth Juliette 9K, who was a donor cow for Rolly Bateman and also here on our farm. If you are interested in history, the Shorthorn breed was developed very close to the Sotherby Parks Farm so it is wonderful to see Shorthorns still being raised in this area. Another interesting bit of trivia is that as we were travelling

Upsall Secret Roxanne

Millerston Fine Ideal at Graham Hunt’s

towards Graham Hunt’s farm, I happened to notice some cement gate posts as we passed by a farm. Embedded in the cement posts was the word Gainford. I had heard of many of the Gainford Shorthorns that were imported into Canada and the US in early 1900s so I asked Graham if this was the home of the Gainford herd. He said it was where this famous herd had been produced and that his father had been the manager of the Shorthorn herd there for many years. One of the most famous animals from this herd that I remember seeing pictures of was Gainford Marquis, who was sent to the US in 1918. This bull had an illustrious show career including being named Grand Champion at the Chicago International. Many of the great Shorthorns of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s were descendants of imported Gainford cattle. Yet another interesting fact that I learned on this visit was that the vet clinic that Graham Hunt uses for his farm, is the famous clinic that James Herriot practiced in, that led to the James Harriot books and later, the TV show based on his career as a vet in rural England. Like many others, I read those books a few times, so this made this visit just a bit more magical to me. After a great visit with Graham and Sam, we headed down the road again for our next herd visit at the Upsall herd, owned by The Honourable Gerald Turton. The Upsall estate is located a few miles north of Thirsk, in North Yorkshire. By the time we arrived there, the sky was dumping heavy rain. Through my tour of both Ireland and England, there was several days where it rained while I was travelling but it had stopped by the time I arrived to see some cattle. Upsall was the only exception. I was looking forward to finally meeting the man who I had spoken with The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2020

on the phone on several occasions and communicated through email with. Gerald Turton met us in the barn yard just down from Upsall Castle, where he lives. We jumped into his truck and he showed us through the pastures and commented on every animal we saw. It was easy to see why animals carrying the Upsall prefix are always popular at the breed sales. This herd consists of functional, hard working, and sound structured animals. The Upsall herd is one of the oldest herds of polled Shorthorns in the UK and possibly the entire world. Gerald has never been afraid to search the world for new genetics that he thinks may help his herd. He was the first person in the UK to purchase embryos from our herd back in 2005. He has purchased semen rights in several leading sires from Australia in recent years, and their genetics can be found in herds throughout all parts of Britain and Ireland. Included in these Aussie bulls are Broughton Park Thunder, Ingleton C111, and Belmore Patriarch (by Northern Legend 3N). Canadian sires that have been used in the Turton herd are Glenford Director and Diamond Xerxes

Gerald Turton (in the forefront of this picture)

8X. This was another visit that we could have extended, but the rain did not appear to be going to stop anytime soon, so we decided to head to A&C Farms where we were to be hosted that night by Andre and Caroline Vrona. A&C Farms is owned by Andre Vrona and it is located in Northern England near Langham. Andre Vrona is a world Continued on page 16 Page 15


One Thing Off My Bucket List - Part 2 - England renowned rock mason and his work can be found on many famous buildings in many parts of the world. He owns his own rock quarry in Morocco where Andre and Carolyn are also building a very impressive second home. Because Andre is so busy with his other business ventures, Carolyn has taken over the management of completing the construction of this new home, and from the pictures she showed us, she is doing an outstanding and most impressive job! To this Canadian prairie boy, it looked like a modern day Taj Mahal. Andre and Carolyn’s daughter JoAnne is also very involved in their farm and the two herds they maintain. Despite running

a major business like this, Andre spends as much time as possible on his farm where he has developed one of the best herds of South Devon cattle in the UK, and the entire world. He is presently reducing the size of his South Devon herd, and adding a Shorthorn herd. From what we saw, this herd is going to be a major player in the Shorthorn breed! Andre has carefully assembled a beautiful set of foundation females and he has carefully selected his herd bulls. He is also using ET to bring in new genetics and he has concentrated on Canadian Shorthorn genetics. The top selling female in the 2019 Sun Country sale at $15,000 was ACC Candy’s Fruit Loop 46F and she was purchased by Andre Vrona to become a donor female to produce embryos for his herd. Plans are already in the works to flush this female as soon as she is ready, after calving in the next few weeks. Of special note in this herd were three excellent bull calves from embryos he had purchased from Dan and Jill Stephenson’s Diamond herd in Alberta. All three of these bulls are presently being developed as future herd sires in his herd, with two of them being sired by Yamburgen Tobermorey F90 and one by Weebollabolla Theodore T85. The two Tobermorey full brothers are named Nevada and Nebraska, and I could not decide which one was the better bull. Andre was recently telling me that they had shown one of these bulls at two major shows and he was Grand Champion Bull at both of them. He said he still thinks his full brother that stayed home is the better bull. Page 16

calves and by the beautiful pasture of yearling heifers we saw, their daughters are going to ensure that their cow herd moves upwards another tier. They were one of the best set of replacement heifers I saw in this entire trip! Time eventually caught us again, as we had one more herd to visit before I headed to the airport for my return home the next day. We were off to visit the famous Pode Hole herd, owned by Charles and Sally Horrell who live approximately 90 miles from Heathrow. Pode Hole Beef Shorthorns was established in 1997 with the purchase of a few females from three herds in the UK. Their entire herd has been built around these original females and today their herd still contains the same cow families they originally purchased. For several years now they have maintained a closed herd with the only additions being herd bulls from time to time. Since establishing their herd, Pode Hole has won numerous awards with their cattle and have sold numerous females to establish new herds in the UK. I saw some excellent cows that carry the Pode Hole prefix in many of the herds we visited. I had met the Horrells back in 2013, when Sally judged the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was wonderful to visit with them on this occasion and see their world famous herd. The pastures were full of big, thick bodied, deep sided cows with excellent udders. This is a most uniform set of females. Many of the calves were sired by Royalla Rockstar TJG187, the Australian sire they had purchased the European semen rights on. The Rockstar calves are a stellar bunch and I am sure many of them will be heard of in future show and sale reports over there. Some of the herd sires that left a legacy in their cow herd have been Trojan of Craigassie, Chapleton Clansman and Millerston Fine Ideal (now at Sotherby Parks). Charles and Sally also have been using one of their best young bulls being developed to clean up their herd after the AI breeding is finished. They also mentioned that they always pay special attention to the maternal traits in any bull The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2020


they consider for their herd and it was easy to see that this has been important in developing this herd. Darkness was about to arrive when we finally decided to leave the

pasture. We were invited to join them for a wonderful meal and they provided us with beds to grab a few hours sleep before we made an early departure for the airport. We said our good-byes in the early morning hours and we headed for Heathrow. My mind was filled with mixed emotions, as I realized that my whirlwind trip of Ireland and England was about to end. While I was really looking forward to getting home, I wanted to stay longer as there was so much more to see. I then thought back to when I had booked my return flights home. I knew then that 10 days would never be long enough to do everything I wanted to see and do.

As I sat down in my seat for the eight-hour trip to Calgary before I headed on to Regina, I reflected on this trip. I saw a lot of amazing country and a lot of excellent cattle, but the thing that stuck out the most, was the hospitality and the genuine love of Shorthorn cattle that the people showed to me. I have reflected on my trip many times since returning home and I have even checked airfares a few times to see if I can find any fares that are too good to turn down. I plan to be back there again sometime to do even more. From what I was able to see on this trip, the breed in the UK and Ireland are in very fine hands. It is no wonder that Shorthorns are one of the fastest growing breeds in these countries. ď‚Ž Grant Alexander

News from the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency

Why new traceability regulations? What we mean when we say Traceability Simply put, Traceability is the ability to follow an item or a group of items – be it animal, plant, food products or ingredient – from one point in the supply chain to another, either backwards or forwards. Traceability systems are used for many things, including the protection of animal health, and food safety. They can help reduce response time, thereby limiting economic, environmental and social impacts of emergency situations such as disease outbreaks and environmental disasters such as floods, fires and pipeline bursts. Now that we understand why Traceability is important…let’s talk regulations: The main reasons for federal regulatory changes are to increase Canada’s ability in responding to health threats and other emergencies and improve traceability nationally. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is proposing amendments to the Part XV of the Federal Health of Animals Regulations that are expected in 2020. Current regulations focus on Animal Identification; all cattle/sheep/bison must be tagged with an approved tag/ indicator prior to moving from their current location or leaving their farm of origin. Abattoirs dealing with cattle and bison are required to report the identification number within 30 days of the animal’s death or slaughter. Proposed regulations will likely affect ALL producers. Under the proposed regulations, when ruminants are moved from a departure site to a destination site, the operator of the destination site would be required Page 18

to report the individual animal ID’s, the premises identification number (PID) of the departure site and the date and time at which the animals were loaded in the vehicle at the departure site. The main objective for information accompanying animals is to support the operator of the destination site being compliant with this requirement. What does the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency do? Also known as CCIA, we manage a database called the Canadian Livestock Tracking System (CLTS), a custom livestock tracking database. CLTS account holders are able to report important information to the database such as animal identification, premises identification and movement of the animal. Accessing your CLTS account directly is one of the simplest and most convenient ways for you to prepare for the regulatory changes and get prepared ahead of time. We also have a mobile version that can be downloaded to your smartphone as an APP, giving you access to the entire database in the palm of your hands. CCIA is not government, we are non-profit, industry-driven and here to help you navigate reporting and recording requirements with the proposed amendments. So how do you start preparing today? We’ve identified three easy steps to get started: 1) Get a PID number We recommend obtaining a Premises Identification number (PID). This will need to be processed through your provincial government, and you can consult our website for provincial listings and relevant contact information. Once you obtain your PID, we ask that you contact CCIA directly and report your PID number, as your province may not be informing CCIA of this information. It is proposed that a PID will be required under future regulations and

may be necessary to purchase animal indicators/tags. 2) Visit your CCIA/CLTS account at clts.canadaid.ca Begin by visiting your CCIA/CLTS account – include your PID number. From there, you can practice submitting events such as retirements and animal movements or update your tag inventory. If you have ever purchased tags in the past, then you have a CLTS account, contact us to set up your login. Download the CLTS MOBO APP to have the CLTS database available on your mobile device, for fast and convenient uploads. 3) Get the news straight from the source Proposed amendments will be published through the Canada Gazette, which is the official newspaper of the Government of Canada. Once published, there will be a 90-day comment period in which you are encouraged to offer your opinion and feedback on the regulatory amendments. The draft regulations are targeted for Spring 2020 publication in Canada Gazette I. For more information on the proposed regulatory amendments, take a look at Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s TRACE newsletters, which can be found on CCIA’s website at https:// w w w. c a n a d a i d . c a / t r a c e a b i l i t y / newsletters/ CCIA also has a Resource Centre with comprehensive Quick Guides and Manuals to help you navigate the CLTS database and MOBO APP. It can be found at http://support.canadaid.ca/

TH Free, PHA Free, Myostatin free,100% appendix free. Solid, dark red bull that doesn’t disappoint. His offspring range from 80 to 89 lbs. He is an easy calving bull that can be used on any females.Clay’s pedigree has many exceptional bloodlines. He adds growth, muscle and length to his calves. We feel he has bypassed his sire Balmoral Oaks Eagle 9X.

NEED A BULL OR TWO THIS SPRING? WE HAVE PLENTY TO CHOOSE FROM!

So why should you buy a Saskvalley bull? Here are 3 very good reasons. Reason#1 Our cow herd. It is managed under harsh, commercial conditions. We don't have time for bad udders or feet. And we just assume our customers don't either. There are no second chances, or extra feed for some cow that won a show 5 years ago. When you buy a Saskvalley bull you can rest assured that his daughters will be productive, trouble free cows. Reason#2. Our selection of two year old bulls. Probably the largest group offered in North America. Our bulls are sold between 22 and 24 months of age. They require much less care and attention than a yearling and they can handle more cows. It also gives our buyers a much better idea of what their purchase will look like as a mature bull. Reason#3. You get the pick of our bull pen. Every year. No bulls are sold off the farm prior to this sale. We get numerous requests, but every bull is held back for the "Who's Your Daddy" bull sale.

SASKVALLEY STOCK FARM

Please join us in Saskatoon on April 2nd for the 17th Annual "Who's Your Daddy" bull sale.
