Impressive and Practical Beef Bulls HC North of 49 55G
Since 55G sold to Wernacres in Illinois, we have had several inquiries about semen from Canadian breeders. Our original plan was for him to come back for the 2021 Agribition show and stay in Canada until semen was collected, but Covid and border restrictions ended that idea. Right now, he is on display at the US National show in Oklahoma City and then he will be dropped off at a stud for collection. We are hoping to have semen here for this year’s breeding season. Semen will be limited so contact us as soon as possible to get on the list if you want some. Semen will be available at $50/straw (min of 5). A ¾ brother sells on March 8th in the Sun Country sale.
HC FL Touchdown 123T ET
The 2009 Canadian National Champion Bull. Looking back over the years and the bulls we have used, Touchdown is one that we need to use again. He sired moderate framed cattle with thickness and fleshing ability. His daughters have excellent udders and are fertile. Semen is $35/straw (min 5 straws).
HC Bluebook 22B ET
Bluebook topped our 2015 Sun Country sale at $32,000. He later came back here as a herd sire and he sired some excellent calves, including two sons that sold for $24,000 and $13,000 in last year’s sale. It was a sad day when he had to leave the farm due to injury. Semen is $35/straw (min 5 straw).
We have semen available from a host of other sires. We will be offering a good selection of herd sire prospects and a great set of replacement heifers in the
Sun Country Shorthorn Sale.

Adversity Builds Character! I usually sit down to write the editorial for this January issue in late December, and I always seem to look back at the previous year and then try to look to what the New Year will bring us. My first thoughts when looking back, were that I didn’t want to even think of what 2021 had brought us. There were so many negative things in the world I live in, like record breaking drought, feed shortages, water shortages, record high temperatures, devastating wind damage, and on and on. (Not to say anything about the moving target called COVID!) I also realize that there were lots of issues in other parts of this country from never ending rain, flooding, wild fires and record winds. It seems that most everyone had their own set of challenges in the past year. After reflecting on this for a few brief moments, I realized that there were also some very good things that happened in the past year. I have said before, that to me, there is nothing as devastating as drought. It truly does mess with my mind. Not only does it make me scramble to figure out how I will gather enough feed to get through the next winter, it actually made me wonder if we should even plan to offer breeding stock for sale as I didn’t think there would be anyone interested in buying them. There were even a few days where I wondered if we should cancel our March bull and heifer sale, for the same reasons. Fortunately, those thoughts were short lived and I got my head sorted out properly again. This wasn’t the first drought I have seen. I have always survived the previous ones and I decided I would survive this one as well. I kept reminding myself that I was fortunate that I didn’t have as many
cattle as I used to have! There is an old saying here, that you always have to make your cow numbers fit your feed supply. That certainly wasn’t going to work in 2021, because if I did, I would have to sell off most of the cattle I had left. Now we are only a few months away from spring and green grass and I am optimistic that we have turned the corner and are heading to a great year ahead. I think our breed has had an excellent 2021 despite everything Mother Nature has tossed in our paths. I think Shorthorn sales have all been tremendous through the fall sale season. We have not only seen record prices being broken on a few occasions, but we have also seen record sale averages across the board. This is more proof that quality cattle will sell for good prices in most any situation. The numbers of people who purchased their first Shorthorns for their herds is pretty long. The ball has started to roll and I think it is gaining momentum. Just a few weeks ago, I had a cattleman who had purchased his first Shorthorns a few months ago, say that he had heard of Shorthorns all his life, but he didn’t realize what he was missing out on, until he actually added some to his herd. I have half jokingly said for years that if every Shorthorn breeder gave two heifer calves to someone who raised another breed, with the only stipulation being that they had to keep them until they weaned at least one calf, that we would probably see a major increase in our membership. It would be an investment that would pay for itself in many ways over a few years. As I walked down the aisles at Continued on page 8 The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2022

CSA News... This will be my last report to you from 2021 as we will be in the New Year when this reaches you. This past year has been a roller-coaster of challenges and working through adversity and uncertainty, dealing with Covid, drought and factors which are out of our control. I want to speak positively of the good things that have been successfully accomplished and will carry us forward into 2022. As we moved through 2021, events seemed doubtful at times but shows and sales came through. I must commend the show organizers and Shorthorn participants that made this possible and successful. Shorthorn Breeders brought forward good strong Shorthorn genetics that will serve our Shorthorn people but also the kind of beef cattle that will compete and continually be well received in the beef industry in Canada and abroad. I cannot remember a year with as many Shorthorn sales with high numbers of animals sold as we have had this year. As I watched and reviewed the sales I think we can feel very positive about the results. With the largest number of animals sold in recent history and the quality of animals evolving in a positive manner, Shorthorn genetics are being very well received by established and new Shorthorn breeders to expand and or improve their herds. We are also seeing commercial breeders participating by bringing commercial animals to sales and also purchasing Shorthorn genetics to add to their operations. We’re also seeing new breeders starting new herds and expanding existing ones and this is a trend that should continue. I would like to commend Shorthorn breeders across the country on the quality of animals produced and presented at shows and sales and we will hopefully see this continued into the new year.
By Ray Armbruster
was kicked off last year. Make sure to check all the tabs including a new For Sale feature. We will continue to expand this feature throughout the year and encourage members to check it out whether buying or selling. There is a place to submit material and if you have trouble, contact Shayla at the office. A reminder to breeders who have sold animals to new Shorthorn owners to reach out to them to direct them to the web-site. They can get lots of information and the assistance they may need to become members and register their animals. Also a reminder that we are going to proceed with the survey that was promised in the fall. It will arrive in the new year, better late than never!! We ask that you participate and fill it out as this will be very beneficial for the board to continue planning on your behalf. The CSA annual general meeting will be held in Brandon, Manitoba June 2-4, 2022 at the Clarion Hotel. Along with the meeting will be various events and activities for members to attend. More details to follow. Please check the Manitoba and CSA web-sites in the next month or so. This is always a great opportunity for members to get together and have formal and informal discussions to keep the Shorthorn breed moving ahead. In closing I would personally like to thank the board members for their work and commitment to maintaining a strong Shorthorn Association. A special thanks to our staff Belinda, Shayla and Ruth for their continued dedication to their work. I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful festive season and wish everyone continued success in 2022!

Adversity Builds Character! Agribition, the thought came to me that there were probably more Shorthorn exhibitors in the show that did not even own Shorthorns 10 years ago, than there were long time exhibitors. This makes me very happy and it tells me that we are heading in the right direction. This breed is getting noticed and it has been wonderful to see more Shorthorn bulls and females win major Supreme Championships over all other breeds in the past few years than ever before. I think we should all be thanking the breeders who developed and promoted these great cattle as we all benefit from their efforts.
Continued from cover
I have not made many New Year’s Resolutions in the past, but this year, I have made one that I hope I can keep (well, most of the time anyways). It is that I am going to try to concentrate on the positive in the coming year. I expect I may break this resolution on occasion, but I don’t know of any rule that says I cannot pick it back up and start over. I am convinced that this breed is as good as our breeders want it to be. Let’s all try to make 2022 a better year for ourselves, our families and the Shorthorn breed - that one thing that ties us all together. Onwards and upwards! All the Best in 2022! Grant
Johnathan Garth Inglis
Johnathan Garth Inglis, age 45 years passed away on Sunday, September 9, 2021 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre. John was born in Brandon on January 4, 1976 to Garth and Deb Inglis. Growing up on a farm near Rapid City, John attended Rapid City Elementary and Elton Collegiate. He enjoyed playing baseball, hockey and curling. He was a member of the 4-H Beef Club, showing cattle at various events, liked horseback riding and rodeo; both watching and a short try at bull riding. John was a hard worker and always on the go. Throughout his life he held various jobs including farming, working on the rigs in Alberta, trucking and most recently, he worked for the RM of Oakview. When he wasn’t at work, he was often helping out with the family cattle and other farmers in the area. Family was John’s pride and joy; he was truly a family man and his family was everything to him. He enjoyed helping his kids with 4-H, hockey and anything else they were interested in. John will be lovingly remembered by his wife Amanda, Children, Wyatt, Alyssa, Sierra and Chance, parents Deb and Garth Inglis, brother Tim (Tracey) Inglis, sister Sam (Joel) Carpenter, parents in law Cindy and Doug Sigvaldason, sister-in-law Rebecca (Keith) Houston, brother-in-law Mike (Paige) Sigvaldason, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his grandparents John and Bert Sibbald and Roy and Dorothy Inglis, cousin Leon Houle and uncles Leo Houle and Don Inglis. A private funeral service was held Friday, September 24, 2021 with Reverend Cliff Paul officiating, interment followed at Rapid City Cemetery. A note from the Inglis Family: Our family wishes to thank the Manitoba Shorthorn Association for dedicating their Shorthorn Show at Brandon Ag-Ex in John’s memory. He would have been proud and smiling from above. I am sure he was there in spirit. John truly loved the Shorthorn breed and the friends he made over the years. He was a quiet guy who was just there with a helping hand whenever needed. To have John acknowledged in this way gave our family a great feeling. He is gone from our midst but will remain in our hearts forever. Thank-you so much. Page 8

CCIA UPDATE FOR CANADIAN SHORTHORN MEMBERS We have been made aware of concerns regarding unclear communications and confusion impacting producers. This is an effort to try to dispel some rumours and clear the air on proper traceability practices. Miscommunication we’ve been hearing:
Shorthorn tags and inventory is currently unavailable.
This is NOT TRUE. Currently Shorthorn tag inventory is not being housed evenly between the two CDMV (CCIA’s tag distributor) warehouses sometimes creating a “Back Order” message. We assure you THE PRODUCT IS NOT BACK ORDERED, and this is simply a technical communication issue with the CDMV’s order process. Plenty of stock remains. Place an order regardless of the Back Order message and the product will be shipped out directly to you.
Producers must have Shorthorn tags in all animals to show next year. This is NOT TRUE. Producers are strongly encouraged
to have a Shorthorn tag to show next year but this CANNOT be MANDATORY. You can tag your 2022 calves Shorthorn but leave your current official tag on older animals and stay abreast of the official show rules with the Shorthorn association. Cutting off any official tag is illegal. We know some aspects of the process can be confusing and we encourage you to contact CCIA directly if you are ever unclear. 1-877-909-2333 | email@example.com Page 10

A New Year’s Resolution for Cow-Calf Producers By DERRELL PEEL - OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY - Taken from Drover’s magazine.
Cow-calf producers are constantly managing many production and marketing challenges. However, as we consider the coming year, one that deserves special attention is to produce and market forage for maximum value. Cattle producers are frequently reminded that they are really in the forage business and that cattle are a means to harvest and market forage. There are numerous considerations to market forage for the highest value. In part, marketing forage involves considering cattle production and marketing alternatives that represent higher value for forage. For cow-calf producers, this includes considerations for marketing calves at weaning or retaining calves for backgrounding/stocker production as well as marketing cull breeding animals. The market environment in 2022 may provide more possibilities with reduced cattle numbers favoring weaned calf production and marketing yet, at the same time, higher grain prices and elevated feedlot cost of gain increase the value of added forage-based weight gain on feeder cattle. Producers will have more options and potential to add value and planning now can improve returns to cattle and forage production later. Feed costs are the largest cost component for cow-calf production. Part of managing forage for increased value is to utilize grazing better to reduce cow feed costs. Grazing is the least expensive feed for cows, so this means managing pastures for maximum quantity, quality and duration of grazing and having cows do most of their own feed harvesting. Early planning is necessary to plan annual forage production and grazing management. This must be done in conjunction with plans for cow-calf production, retained stockers and forage use as part of cull cow marketing. The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2022
Premier Breeder/Exhibitor Shadybrook Shorthorns
Feeding harvested forages (hay) is at least twice the cost of grazing. The goal should be to minimize hay use with grazing management. To the extent that hay use cannot be avoided, manage hay for reduced waste and to decrease hay expense. Test hay to know the nutritive value and how the hay will contribute to meeting cattle nutritional requirements. This is done on a pound basis so it is important to know the weight of round bales. Evaluate the economics of hay versus supplemental feeds to provide needed protein and energy relative to the cattle stage of production at different times and any available grazable forage. Store hay to maintain quality and reduce waste. As I’m driving, I see lots of rounds bales from last year or the year before which are now melted into the ground with little or no feed value. Plan hay storage relative to how long the hay might need to be stored. The longer hay must/will be stored, the more you can justify investment in storage facilities (sheds, coverings, pads and drainage). Feed hay to reduce waste and know exactly how much cows are consuming. Think about how much hay cows need and how much they are getting. Round bales are more convenient and save labor but do require feeding management otherwise they can add significantly to annual cow costs. With generally rising input costs, cow-calf producers need to put additional effort into cost management. Managing feed costs will be a key to minimizing cow costs and capitalizing on better cattle market conditions in 2022. It’s not too early to plan the next year of forage management and grazing.

CJSA Update... 2021 was definitely one for the books for our Canadian Junior Shorthorn Board. The year had some hiccups and some doubtful moments, but we persevered and made the best of the challenges. This allowed the board to experience the leadership and teamwork it takes to be successful. Thank you to everyone who made the trip to Lacombe, Alberta this past July, where we had 45 junior participants both virtually and in person. It was a pleasure working alongside the Alberta Shorthorn Association to put on our first Canadian Junior Shorthorn National show hosted by our junior board of directors. Thank you to all those who participated and congratulations to those who won, we are excited to see everyone again in 2022. We would like to again thank all of our sponsors and volunteers for their support. This fall the Canadian Junior Shorthorn Association board of directors held elections for the current executive. I am excited to be the new President of the CJSA board of directors and with that, we would like to thank Royce Moellenbeck from Englefeld, Saskatchewan who served as President for the last number of years for all of his hard work and dedication. Taylor Carlson from Manitoba is the new Secretary and Royce is the Vice-President. A bit about me – I am currently in my fourth year of post-secondary education, finishing my Applied Degree in Agriculture Business. I purchased my first Shorthorn in 2018 and am planning to continue to grow my herd in the near future.
Association board provides juniors with the experience of meeting new people, building industry connections, enhancing decision-making skills, and helping build confidence. Of all the benefits of being a junior board director don’t forget about the best part, taking responsibility and planning events for your fellow juniors across Canada. We are looking forward to our Shorthorn Stars Leadership Workshop January 8-9 in Saskatoon, where we will be learning from a number of presenters and meeting as a board to work on plans for the next year and beyond. Watch for a complete report in the March issue! Mark your calendars!! July 14-17, 2022, in Collingwood, Ontario, the CJSA is hosting “Sun, Shades and Shorthorns”, a Hawaiian-themed Canadian Junior Nationals. Collingwood is the perfect location for both a cattle show and a family trip. The beautiful Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach and Blue Mountains offer a number of great opportunities for all of the family and they are all within a 20 km radius. Keep watching for more updates. If there are any questions, do not hesitate to contact one of the Canadian Junior Shorthorn Association board of directors. Stay posted for more updates and information from the Canadian Junior Shorthorn Association on social media and the CSA website. Last but not least, our Junior board would like to wish everyone the best in 2022. Stay healthy, strong and always make time for yourselves and your herds.
Do you know of any other junior members across Canada who are passionate, driven or interested in bringing new ideas and skills to the table? Nominations for becoming a director on the Canadian Junior Shorthorn Association board are due January 31st. The Canadian Junior Shorthorn The Canadian SHORTHORN REPORT - January 2022

NO PICTURES ... JUST DATA
We tested our yearling bulls for feed efficiency. Hopefully this will generate some discussion. Here are the results: Important information to know before we get to the data: We tested 33 yearling bulls for individual feed efficiency. The test was conducted from May 4 to July 30, 2021. The Residual Feed Intake (RFI) was calculated by Livestock Gentec, University of Alberta, Lisa McKeown and John Basarab. The bulls were fed a growing ration (NEgain 49.5 Meal/cwt), not a high energy finishing ration. The average start weight was 987 lbs., and the average ending weight was 1293 lbs. I.D.
%Body F:G Weight
IMPORTANT TAKEAWAYS 1) The bull with the lowest average daily gain (ADG) gained 2.85 lbs/day. The bull with the highest ADG gained 4.63 lbs/day. The pen averaged 3.56 lbs/day. 2) The bull that ate the least amount of feed (DMI) ate 15.99 lbs/day (all weights of feed are on a dry matter basis). This bull only ate 1.29% of his body weight per day (that is incredibly good). The bull that ate the most amount of feed ate 26.02 lbs/day. This bull ate 2.19% of his body weight per day (that is still an acceptable amount). The pen's average feed consumption was 22.65 lbs/day and averaged eating 1.98% of their body weight. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOWEST FEED INTAKE AND THE HIGHEST FEED INTAKE WAS 10 LBS/DAY! 3) The bull with the best lbs of feed consumed:lb of gain ratio was 4.76:1. The bull with the poorest feed:gain ratio was 7.51:1. The pen averaged 6.43:1. These results proved to us what we had already been told. It is very hard, if not impossible, for even the best of cattlemen to walk into a pen and predict which animal is the most feed efficient. If a group of animals is not tested for individual feed efficiency, one would not be able to pick out the most feed efficient animal, even with ADG numbers, EPD's, etc. Feed:gain(F:G) ratios are important and interesting, but if we select bulls mainly on the basis of high ADG and low feed:gain ratios, the size of the cow in our herd will increase and thus our yearly feed costs will also increase. We feel that it is extremely important to take into account a bull's residual feed intake (RFI) when selecting which bull to use. RFI is defined as the difference between an animal's actual feed intake, and it's expected feed requirements for maintenance and growth, and is used as a tool for selecting feed efficient animals, thus reducing feed costs. RFI is a moderately heritable trait. We highly recommend going on YouTube and searching "Gordon Carstens". He can describe the importance of RFI better than we can. This video is a good starting p.oint. https://youtu.be/XVt I FGMeO (4:50). If you would like to discuss any of the above data or opinions, please phone Barry.
