President’’s Message

Whether print or electronic media, one can’t help but see articles about risk management concerning financial markets, information technology, legal liabilities, natural disasters, and health care. The USDA has created a Risk Management Agency that has been very visible to the farm sector through crop insurance and livestock programs after the impact of last year’s widespread drought conditions. In the Southdown business, as in any other business, we would like to control the probability or impact of unfortunate events in order to maximize income and minimize physical and financial stress. Many of us will now take measures to try rotational grazing methods, stock pile and use alternative feed sources, insulate water lines, and improve barns to help manage the risks of drought and severe winter weather, both fresh in our memories from this past year. The ASBA has been leading the way among sheep organizations in providing means to manage risk for breeders and minimize risk to buyers. The major sheep sales now have DNA disclosure requirements which began with the ASBA Hereditary Chondrodysplasia(HC) Sale Warranty adopted in 1999. Then in 2006 we were the first breed to require QR or RR with respect to scrapie susceptibility( codon 171). By careful use of DNA testing, Southdown flocks have been able to minimize the occurrence of lambs deformed by HC ( “spider” syndrome), reduce the risk of government flock quarantine or condemnation from scrapie and have the additional benefit of using results for marketing breeding stock. Through the research efforts of Dr. Jonathan Beever and the University of Illinois and the diligence of the ASBA genetic research committee, as a breed we are now able to manage another risk of financial loss from a genetic defect, Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED), more commonly referred to as “hairy lamb”, a terminology used based on physical appearance until the genetic cause was determined. ED is a simple recessive genetic defect that affects the development of the ectodermal layer in an embryo. This is the layer associated with development of skin, hair, teeth and nails, which is why in ED affected lambs the abnormalities can include parrot mouths, abnormal teeth, fine white hair instead of crimped wool and very thin skin making them subject to stress, most dying within a few days of birth. You will read in this issue of the Southdown Journal & Directory minutes of the Nov. 10, 2012 meeting of the ASBA board of directors. It includes action on a policy for ED (like that for HC) that will go into effect for ASBA sanctioned sales this fall beginning with the 2013 Stars of Louisville Sale and for shows beginning in 2014 and thereafter. Dr. Beever has projected that the ED test will be licensed to commercial labs in April, 2013. Until that commercial transfer of testing responsibility happens, samples are still being processed and tested at the University of Illinois. Please check the ASBA website for any changes in testing availability in the near future. Once licensed, we will post which commercial labs are approved by Dr. Beever and the ASBA for testing. Breeders can choose to manage ED risk in their breeding programs much the same way as they do for HC: 1. Do nothing and have increased risk of deformed lambs, resulting in fewer lambs to reach market weight and thus loss of income. 2. Use only EDF (Ectodermal Dysplasia Free) homozygous rams. This would compare to using NN rams, which results in all normal appearing offspring, but will not eliminate the risk of carriers of the defect in the breeding flock and replacements. 3. Use EDF rams and test a portion of the ewe flock, making progress towards EDF status, similar to what breeders with careful record keeping have done with codon 171 tests, using matings that increase occurrence of the “R” gene in order to decrease scrapie susceptibility. 4. Most costly in the short term, both in dollars and in loss of quality genetics, would be to test everything and eliminate all heterozygous individuals. Let’s take advantage of the available DNA testing technology to reduce genetic defect risk and loss exposure for our customers when planning breeding programs and selecting consignments for sales. In the cattle industry, the Angus breed has developed testing for nearly a dozen genetic defects yet Angus cattle are more popular and in demand than ever. They have provided the tools to minimize risk, which in turn creates more value in pedigrees and offspring produced. We can benefit from following their lead and continue to set a high standard among purebred sheep in the industry.

ASBA Board of Directors President 2 THE AMERICAN SOUTHDOWN JOURNAL & DIRECTORY 2013


Secretary’’ ’ s Column My oh my, how times change! With today’s social media, facebook, twitter, emails, websites, on line sales, and much more, how things are changing each year. All of these changes affect the American Southdown Breeders’ Association and many of its members. Our Board of Directors is currently looking at the best way to serve the membership and to do so in a timely, professional manner. This year will bring the first year that juniors can buy futurity lambs through one of the on line sales along with consignment sales. We hope this will allow for more participation of juniors nationwide. The futurity program is tried and true and with slight adjustments will continue to be a great way for youth to be able to purchase high quality lambs to show and then put into their flock.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS President Barbara Bishop - Rio, WI 920-992-6183 southdowns@mbgenetics.com Vice President L.C.

The website continues to grow and be a vital part of this Association for so many. So much information is available in a timely manner. I encourage you to visit the website often for current news and for all the forms that you will need to register this year’s lamb crop. Membership forms, application for registry, fee schedule, and other forms are available at the click of your mouse.

Brian Forsee - Owenton, KY 502-484-2801 forseesouthdowns@yahoo.com

If time is short, or you forgot to register that late lamb, you may wish to look at your preferred method of “rush” registry of lambs. Time sensitive registry of sheep is available through the Association along with payment. So don’t panic, give the Association office a call, and we can help you make it happen in most instances!

Gary Kwisnek - Clarksburg, PA 724-459-5254

However, with all the instant messaging, on line sales, and hustle and bustle of getting those papers needed for shows and sales, none of these are the real heart and soul of the sheep business and this Association. For there is nothing like seeing that set of newborn twins nursing a ewe for the first time, or admiring the new lamb crop at the end of the lambing season. There is nothing like the handshake of an old friend and fellow shepherd you haven’t seen over the winter, or the handshake of anticipation of a youth looking at Southdowns for the first time. Some good things just never change! We hope you enjoy this copy of the 2013 Journal and Directory and most importantly enjoy your Southdowns this year.

Preventing Overeating Disease in Lambs By Dr. Kevin Burgoon, Show Feed Nutritionist

Overeating Disease in sheep is actually a misnomer. The disease is more accurately termed enterotoxemia. This disease is caused by the bacteria Clostridium perfringens. There are actually 6 types of this bacteria (A,B,C,D,E, & F), however only types B, C, & D are significant in sheep and lambs.

The infection of enterotoxemia caused by CL. perfringens types B & C causes severe enteritis, dysentery, toxemia and high mortality in young lambs. Type C also causes the disease in adult sheep. Usually, lamb dysentery is seen in young animals under 3 weeks of age. The proper prevention of enterotoxemia is caused by Type C vaccination of the pregnant dam. Vaccination is recommended in the last third of gestation, with a booster about 4 weeks after the first injection. Clinical signs of acute lamb dysentery caused by Cl perfringens Type C include lambs that stop nursing, become listless, produce blood tinged diarrhea, and die within a few days. Many times, the lamb dies prior to exhibiting clinical signs of the disease. Treatment is usually ineffective and the best course is prevention by vaccination of the pregnant dam.

Enterotoxemia caused by Cl perfringens Type D is found frequently in lambs and less likely in goats. This is the disease most commonly referred to as “Overeating”. This disease usually affects young lambs under 2 weeks of age, or the weaned lambs that are consuming a high-carbohydrate diet (grain). However, lambs grazing lush pastures are also susceptible. There are few signs of the disease apart from “sudden death syndrome”. The term “Overeating” was given to this disease because it usually affected the larger lambs consuming grain diets, and without notice of signs, the lambs were usually healthy one day and found deceased the next. Treatment is usually ineffective. Vaccination of pregnant dams and lambs is recommended. Lambs nursing ewes that have been vaccinated receive immunity through the ewe’s milk. Most sheep are found to have at least some population of Cl. perfringens in their digestive tract. When lambs begin consuming large amounts of carbohydrates (milk or grain) the bacteria flourish producing a waste product that is toxic. The toxin affects the central nervous system. Usually, the bacteria proliferate causing the toxin to be released in a short period. This causes the unvaccinated lamb to succumb to the disease in a short period of time, usually without clinical signs. The recommended vaccination schedule is to initially immunize pregnant ewes in the last trimester of gestation with a booster about 4 weeks later, and subsequent annual vaccinations. For young lambs, usually their immune system is not fully developed to allow the full effect of vaccination prior to 4 weeks of age. So, it is suggested that young nursing lambs be vaccinated with Cl. perfringens Types C & D at 4 weeks of age and again 2 to 4 weeks later. An annual vaccination is recommended to prevent occurrence of the disease in the adult animal.

It is also suggested that young lambs be vaccinated for Tetanus (Clostridium tetani) at the same time as vaccinated for enterotoxemia. This can be accomplished by using a toxiod vaccine that includes Cl. perfringens Types C & D, and Cl. tetani (CD/T vaccine). Also, it is important to note the difference between toxoid vaccine and antitoxin. The Cl. perfringens Types C & D antitoxin provides protection almost immediately but gradually becomes ineffective in about 2 weeks. In contrast, the toxoid vaccine typically builds immunity in a 2 week period, and that immunity persists for about a year when given a booster 2-4 weeks after the initial vaccination. When lambs are born to unvaccinated ewes, and the organism is present, it is advised that the lambs be treated first with antitoxin and then subsequently vaccinated with the toxoid vaccine for maximum protection. When purchasing lambs from a breeder or through a club lamb sale, it is a very good idea to ask the breeder if the lambs have been vaccinated. If that answer is no, the new owner should vaccinate the lambs immediately, and then again in about 2 weeks.

Feeding the Ewe Flock By: Larry Mrozinski

Feed costs comprise the single largest expense of sheep production. Correct nutrition of the ewe flock is one of the most important aspects of profitable sheep management. Profit is quite dependent on the nutrition program for the ewe flock. Factors affecting the nutritional program of the ewe flock includes: 1. Production stage 2. Production level 3. Body size 4. Body condition 5. Age 6. Time and frequency of lambing 7. Environment 8. Feeds available 9. Disease

Roughage is usually one of the cheapest feed for the ewe flock. Roughage varies drastically in nutrient value. With the use of forage analysis, the nutrient content and quality of roughage can be determined. Comparison of the different feeds available and their nutrient composition must be analyzed to determine the most cost-effective feed that meets the ewes’ requirements.

Forages include pasture, dry hay and silage. The pounds of forage fed per ewe per day needs to include consideration of the dry matter of the feed. The pounds of dry matter that the ewe will consume is a better method of calculating intake since silage contains much more water than does hay. Low dry matter feeds requires the ewe to consume more pounds of feed in order to receive the same level of nutrients from hay or a dry forage. Corn silage is a desirable feed for ewes and can be fortified to become even a better feed. The following can be added to each ton of corn silage at time of ensiling to improve its nutrient content: 10 pounds of urea, 6 THE AMERICAN SOUTHDOWN JOURNAL & DIRECTORY 2013

10 pounds of limestone, 5 pounds of potassium sulfate/ magnesium sulfate, and 5 pounds of dicalcium phosphate. Be careful in the mixing of the aforementioned ingredients to assure even distribution. It is essential that a good quality mineral/salt product that is specially formulated for sheep be used yearround. The content of this mineral product should not contain added copper. Mineral nutrition is a continuous program and should be made available to the sheep each day of the year.

During specific times of the year, forage or roughage alone will not meet the energy needs of the ewe. Energy is usually most cost-effective added to a sheep ration in the form of grain. Corn has traditionally been the most effective for price per unit of energy. The use of whole, shelled corn in ewe’s diets works well. Be sure to slowly introduce corn to the ewes’ diet to prevent acidosis.

Breeding Increasing the energy intake of a ewe two to four weeks before breeding and during the breeding season has increased lambing percentage. Results from flushing are greater with thin ewes than fat ewes. Increasing diet energy is usually accomplished most cost-effectively by adding grain to the ewe’s ration. In the Midwest for average sized ewes, typical flushing program is to place ewes on good quality pasture or forage and add ½ to 1 pound of corn per ewe per day. The great chance of embryo loss and thus lower lambing percentage is during the first 25 days post-conception. During this time, the level of nutrition and management must be adequate to not stress ewes possibly causing embryo loss. Gestation After the 25 day period after conception and during the first 3 to 3 ½ months of gestation, ewes can be placed on a maintenance ration with satisfactory results. Additional nutrient intake by the ewe becomes more critical during the last 1 ½ months of gestation. During this time, fetuses grow about 60 percent of their birth weight, thus placing a tremendous nutritional strain on the ewe. Ewes should slowly increase their nutrient intake so as to be consuming their lactation diet at lambing time. Also during this time, the weather may be cold, ewes may be sheared and many ewes are probably carrying multiple fetuses. Additional energy, above that received from a maintenance diet, must be fed to the


Feeding the Ewe Flock Cont. ewes the last 6 weeks of gestation. If adequate energy is not supplied to the ewe during late gestation, ketosis can occur. In general, even if the ewes are fat, additional energy besides the forage, must be fed to the ewes. Depending on the size of the ewe and the expected number of fetuses, corn should be slowly introduced into the ewe’s diet so that ewes are consuming 1 to 2 pounds of corn at lambing time. The quality of forage should be also increased prior to lambing, with at least a 16 percent protein forage comprising the ration. If good quality forages are not available, supplementation with soybean meal can be done in an economical manner. Bulky, wet diets for late gestation ewes carrying multiple fetuses should be avoided. The energy density of the late gestation ration should be increased as the ewe has less digestive area due to the growing fetuses. A high quality diet with good consumption by the ewe is important during late gestation. Lactation Lactation requires proper nutrition if the maximal milk production and growth rate of the lambs is to be realized. The protein and energy of the diet must be higher during lactation than any other time of the production year. Average sized ewes nursing twins require about 1 pound of protein and 5 pounds of total digestible nutrients (TDN) per day.

and may improve their performance. Medium size ewes, during maintenance, only need 3 to 4 pounds of medium quality hay or pasture per day or approximately .40 pounds of protein and 2 pounds of TDN to meet their requirements. Restricted grazing of pastures can help prevent overly fat ewes during the summer months. Restricted grazing is simply allowing the ewes to graze only for a specific time length. By doing this, ewes are maintained in proper condition and additional ewes can be carried on the pasture. Replacement ewe lambs Proper nutrition of replacement ewe lambs is important for maximum life-time production. Due to vast difference in body sizes and types, one should pay close attention to the condition of the ewe lambs. They must be fed for growth and not fattening. Fat ewe lambs tend to have problems at lambing time while under-fed lambs never reach their full potential. Average sized ewe lambs should be maintained on a ration with at least .65 pounds of protein and 2.5 pounds of TDN. Pregnant and lactating ewe lambs must be fed at a higher level than mature ewes. A rule of thumb is that a ewe lamb needs about 1/3 more feed than the corresponding mature ewe.

Milk production in the ewe peaks at 35 to 42 days of lactation. Weaning at 60 days is a common practice. Weaning the ewe properly helps to reduce the incidence of mastitis. Research done by the author show that the number of mastitis cases in ewes at weaning were reduced when the following was done: 1. 2. 3. 4.

One week before weaning – remove grain from ewe’s diet and feed poor quality hay. At weaning – remove all feed (grain and hay) and water for 48 hours past weaning. After 48 hours – place ewes on low quality hay only. Do not place on lush pasture until10 to 14 after weaning.

Maintenance Feeding ewes correctly during the non-productive part of the year can save producers many dollars. Ewes that are not pregnant of lactating have greatly reduced nutrient requirements when compared to the requirements of gestation and lactation. Keeping the ewes in a “healthy thin” condition during this time saves money

Miscellaneous feeding suggestions Coccidiosis is becoming a more prevalent problem in sheep operation as production levels increase. Feeding the ewe, during late gestation or lactation, a grain mix containing a coccidiostat has been show to decrease the level of coccidiosis in baby lambs. As with any drug, consult your veterinarian of feed manufacturer. southdownsheep.org 7

They went to Jessica Deeter, Troy Longenecker, and Richard Burns. Lisa Scramlin, editor of the Journal and Directory and the Louisville Preview, stated that she would be editing both issues next year. She had ideas for articles for next year’s issues along with evergreen content. Barbara Bishop noted the policy and procedure committee would be doing an update this winter that will bring us to a current status on all of the actions of the Board of Directors.

Also, the 2013 National Junior Show would be held with the All-American Show in East Lansing, Mi, at Michigan State University. There was then discussion on the classes offered at the All-American show and the classes specified for our National Junior Show. Brian Forsee moved to have the pair of ram lambs class at the All-American show along with the best four head of ewes, seconded by Mark Johnson. The motion passed. Discussion then began on the hair lamb policy. It was moved by Lee Pettey to adapt the same policy for both shows and sales as with the spider policy, and this policy to go into effect January 1, 2013. It was seconded by Barbara Bishop. After much discussion on the issue by the Board, it was voiced by Mark Johnson to separate the effective date for the show and sale policy. With the same policy and wording as the spider policy, it was amended to have an effective date of the sale policy of September 2, 2013 and the show policy of January 1, 2014. The original motion with the amended dates was then voted on and passed by a show of hands ,7-2. Online sales and futurity nominations were then discussed. It was voiced that the on line companies that host futurity sales must be bonded, they must include a form to fill out with the identification of each lamb, futurity funds be collected by the sale management company and the sale management company sign an agreement of such. After discussion on the issues, it was moved by Brian Forsee that we agree to online sales with futurity nominations with the following terms: 1. The sale management company agree to the terms of the ASBA show and sale policy, 2. The sale management must be bonded, 3. The sale management collect the $25.00 nomination fee from the consignor and send to the Association office, 4. Nominations must be done at the time the sale is posted with the scrapie number included, 5. The sale management send to the Association office a print out of the sale with name of purchaser, seconded by Darrell Howard. The motion carried It was then moved by Mark Johnson to take the budget off the table, seconded by Jeff Repasky. The motion passed. Brian Forsee moved the Board go into executive session, seconded by Scott Flanagan. The motion passed. Upon returning to the Board meeting, it was moved by Darrell Howard to increase the performance line of the budget to $600.00, seconded by Brian Forsee. The motion passed. Darrell Howard then moved to accept the budget as presented and adjusted, seconded by Jeff Repasky. The motion carried. Brian Forsee voiced he would still like to see a youth director for the Association. We need to explore the possibility of such. It was moved by Darrell Howard to amend the By-Laws so that a Board member will serve no more than 21 consecutive years or seven consecutive terms. The following motion will be presented to the membership for a vote at the 2013 annual meeting: This would be done by the following change to Article V: Directors and Officers 1. There shall be sixteen directors chosen by the members of the Association at the Annual Meeting, who shall constitute the Board of Directors of the Association and who shall have power to manage the affairs of the Association, subject to the provisions of the Constitution and By-laws.

ASBA Ambassadors Finishing my senior year of high school has been very bitter sweet. Even though it has been so much fun, it has been full of instances that I find myself doing something for the last time. The last time I walked out onto the soccer field, the last time I attended an FFA District Contest, or the last time I opened a Rushville FFA meeting as Chapter President. None of these last times would have happened if I didn't have the courage and drive to push myself. The National FFA theme this past year, Grow, has encouraged me to grow and persevere as an individual. I feel as if during my senior year in high school, I have learned more about myself as a person and who I want to be, than I have during any other time in my life. Throughout my senior year I have set goals for myself and those goals continue to grow today. Each day I try to learn something new in order to better myself. These goals that I have set for myself have influenced me to grow as an individual and continue to help develop my character into who I want to be.

Caroline Kuhn Manilla, iN

Being a National Southdown Junior Association Ambassador has been another opportunity for me to meet others and help out this great organization. I think that the most important job qualifications of an ambassador is the willingness to lend a hand when needed and to help new junior members meet others. Being an ambassador has given me the opportunity to network with breeders from all over our great country. I have, and continue to, learn more about the Southdown industry and its impact on American agriculture. I strongly encourage any junior member who wishes to better themselves as individuals and help the National Jr. Southdown Association grow stronger to fill out an application. The memories you will make, and the people you will come in contact with, will be extraordinary. Being an ambassador has been a life changing experience, and I would recommend this great opportunity to anyone who wants to make a difference in our organization. Caroline Kuhn
