As Described by As Described by Adrianne Trennepohl ... Claire Trennepohl ... Favorite Show Day Grooming Product/Equipment: Final Bloom Favorite Hobby: I love showing cattle. And I am heavily involved in FFA. Favorite Stock Show: It’s a split - Junior Nationals & Louisville. I like Junior Nationals because it’s a week in a new place with friends and family. And Louisville ... something about the atmosphere. There is nothing like showing on those green shavings. Proudest Accomplishment: There are a couple ... watching Claire win the Indiana State Fair Heifer Show last year and winning the Bred & Owned Show at the 2009 Shorthorn Junior Nationals with my first bred and owned heifer. Future Goals: I would like to tie my two interests of physical therapy with my love of animals and possibly do something with animal therapy.

Favorite Daily Hair Care Product: Revive

Favorite Show Day Grooming Product/Equipment: Kleen Sheen Favorite Hobby: Volleyball - I am fortunate enough to play on a year round traveling team. Favorite Stock Show: It has always been Denver until I attended the Fort Worth Stock Show this year. Favorite Breed: Simmental Proudest Accomplishment: Winning Supreme Champion Heifer at the State Fair last year with my heifer Lola. We had a great year with her. Future Goals: I hope to become a Registered Nurse and possibly an OB Traveling Nurse.

Favorite Barn Tool: Sullivan’s Massage Brush or what we call the ... “Scrubbies” Daily Care: We do, but if we have someting going on, it’s Dad and Uncle Jeff. Daily Hair Care Tip: We use grill bricks - no sheering is done here at the Trennepohl’s. We feel the key to good hair is to keep the dead hair out so we use grill bricks daily especially during late winter and early spring. Show Day Tip: One thing we do every morning of a show is rinse and make sure the hair is blown forward slowly and carefully and to make sure the animal is completely dry before any, and only, Sullivan product is put in their hair. Show Day Ritual: When we show cattle, it is all about family. Each of us have our own responsibilities. We often do crazy sister things and dad will often do a fist pound. But one ritual we have is with mom. Right before we go into the show ring, she will whisper in the steer or heifer’s ear “You are going to show like a freight train.” And it usually works!

Kylie’s Show Ring Triumphs : Winning her prospect steer class at the National Western Stock Show with a steer she raised named Spiderman.

Showman ...

Cody & Kylie Huwa

Cody Huwa is a young man that has dominated the Colorado State Fair the last two years - Grand Champion Steer and Reserve Supreme Champion Heifer in 2011 and Grand Champion Steer and Supreme Champion Heifer in 2012. Winning the State Fair has always been a dream of his, but what Cody chose to do with some of his winnings is an inspiration to all. Cody and Kylie Huwa are 14 months apart in age and are very close; they look up to each other. Kylie has Down Syndrome and has the same competitive edge that Cody possesses with cattle when it comes to her cheerleading and livestock shows. Cody says Kylie is an inspiration to him and always will be. She always has a smile on her face and has a happy, positive attitude. And she just so happens to be a “funny chick” as well. Kylie also loves to surprise people with her famous trademark of “wet willies” in the ear. Kylie is on a Colorado competitive cheerleading team called the “Cheer Central Suns”. It is a team of 22 cheerleaders with various handicaps. They mostly compete in Colorado, but annually head to the National Cheerleading competition. In 2011 they won the NCA National Championship title! Kylie’s strong will, hard work and dedication inspired Cody to help out his sister and her team in anyway. Unfortunately, not all team members can attend Nationals every year because of the expenses. So he made an unselfish, nobel and humble gesture and decided to give some of his recent winnings to Kylie’s team. A pay it forward type gesture that we all should duplicate in life more often.

As Described by Cody Huwa ...

The Huwa family is an inspiration to all. A love for life with five kids. Extremely busy and successful in all arenas, yet so thoughtful and thankful.

Thank you to all of our family for their love and support. The DePorter Family, May Family, Grandpa Jerry, and Pablo Vasquez for all you do to help and support us with our success not only in the show ring but in life.

10 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2013

Favorite Hobby: Showing, rodeo, basketball and track Favorite Movie: Westerns & Comedies, for a good laugh All Time Favorite Calf: My steer that I won the 2011 Colorado State Fair with, Rooster. He was my first big win and he had a great temperament which made showing fun. Favorite Thing About a Show: I love helping my siblings get ready, meeting all the people & the great competition. Favorite Breed of Cattle: Simmental probably. I’ve had the most success with them and we raise some Simmental’s. Future Goals: I’d like to go to college on a Rodeo scholarship in Team and/or Calf Roping and be a Champion Heeler at the National Finals Rodeo. Eventually I hope to come back here to Colorado and become a good business man like my dad and help him with his reclamation business. Proudest accomplishments: Winning the Colorado State Fair Market Beef Show back to back. Currently, I’m excited to be in the Top 4 in the Colorado State Junior High School Rodeo circuit. I’ve also broke a few hurdle records this year and my basketball team just won a championship title. Show Day Tip: Have a positive attitude. Be humble if you are fortunate enough to win. And always be thankful to God in what you have and what you are able to do. Daily Hair Care Tip: Lots and lots of blowing and brushing. We use the rice brush and Sullivan’s Kleen Sheen daily.

As Described by Kylie Huwa ... Favorite Hobby: Showing steers & pigs, cheerleading and barrel racing on my horse “Duke” Favorite Movie: High School Musical and Hannah Montana Favorite Stock Show: National Western Stock Show All Time Favorite Animal: My steer “Spiderman” and my hog “Princess” and of course my loyal horse “Duke.” Proudest accomplishments: Showing Spiderman with little help at the fair. Winning a York class at the Colorado State Fair with “Princess” and being a member of the 2011 National Champion Special Needs Cheerleading Team.


Owners: Ted and Mary Greiman, sons Kyle (22) & Cole (20) Location: Garner, Iowa Cow Herd: 25 purebred Angus cows and 25 ET heifer calves with satellite herds thanks to sexed semen and in-vitro. Years in the Industry: Sons Kyle and Cole make Greiman Family Angus a four generation family business. We are the fifth oldest, continous Angus herd in the United States. Marketing Opportunities: Greiman’s sell most of their cattle Private Treaty and in the annual “Sharing in the Progress” Sale held on the first Friday of November in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A sale put on by a group of 10 Iowa breeders.

Greiman Family Grand Champion Bred & Owned Female, NJAS

Grand Champion Owned Female, NJAS

As Described by the Greiman Family ... How We got Started in the Angus Breed: Our great-great grandpa Fred traded a Percheron stallion to a man in South Dakota for a purebred Angus bull to outcross with his Shorthorn females. Fred’s son, Addis and his two sons, grandpa Don and his brother Cliff, bought more Angus females and focused their attention on the breed. In the late 80’s, the origional herd was split up between Ted and his cousin as they continued the purebred Angus business. Kyle and Cole are now the fourth generation to raise and show Angus cattle. All-Time Favorite Donor: We hate to name just one. One of our foundation females would be considered Greiman Blue Blood Lady. She was the dam to many of our donor females early on, as well as the 2010 Grand Champion Bred & Owned Female for Cole. Since then, we have brought in Barbara 0617, Proven Queen and Blackbird families. Sires Used for 2013 Calf Crop: Dameron First Class and SCC First N Goal. We feel the First Class calves on the ground are wonderful and we are extremely excited. First N Goal is a full sib to our 2012 Grand Champion Owned Female, SCC Royal Blackbird 112, and a First Class son. We feel he possesses some of the best genetics of the Angus breed. Daily Hair Care Tip: Keep the cattle cool and clean. We also use the Roto Brush, scrub brushes and the Smart Sensation daily. Favorite Barn Tool: Right now, the most used tool would be the Smart Sensation. We use it daily. It gives the Angus hair the pop and lift we are looking for. Proudest Moment/Biggest Accomplishment to Date: We have always had some success. And defeat. But because we are a small firm, we only target for one show - junior nationals. So for us to be able to say we have won the National Junior Angus Show for three years running is humbling. We consider it an honor and feel very blessed to have raised two out of the three Grand champions as well. Champion Bred & Owned Future Goals: Over the years, we have never sold our best. We always kept them for Kyle and Female, NJAS Cole to show. This year we are excited to offer all of our heifers to buyers. We hope to help our customers have the same type of success we have experienced over the years and return some of the knowledge we have been fortunate to gain. Our All-Time Favorite Champion: Our 2012 Champion, SCC Royal Blackbird 112 Special Thank You: Mary and I have always told our boys they will find their best friends in cattle people. The boys are forever indebted to some great people in this business - Cyclone Trace Cattle Company, Sullivan Farms and Bruce, Amie Stertzbach, Jess Recknor and John Sweeney. The network and knowledge they have developed with the help of these great cattlemen has been priceless. Kyle and Cole now understand there are no better people in the world than cattle people.

The model family for livestock production or show barn management. It has been a pleasure to watch Kyle and Cole develop into outstanding cattlemen. Great parenting pays off here.

Sullivan’s

™ Vita Hair Volumizer Foaming Shampoo The first livestock shampoo to scientifically produce hair volume! Vita Hair Volumizer™ Foaming Shampoo is formulated with a natural plant-based proprietary surfactant technology that creates an opposite acting polar electrical charge within each hair strand that actually pushes every hair follicle apart. This prevents the hair from sticking together, and actually springs it loose, making each hair follicle stand on end for a noticeable difference in hair volume and body. This, never before offered, exclusive chemistry for livestock consists of chemically altered ions. Ions are small electrical molecules within surfactants that usually have positive or negative charges which create an attraction to each other. In livestock hair, this attraction causes the hair to stick to each other. The non-ionic chemistry of Vita Hair Volumizer™ inhibits an unusual neutral charge to the ionic molecule of each follicle creating no attraction or pull between the hair strands. This neutral charge actually enables each hair follicle to stand free for extreme hair separation. All this with a plant based neutral pH, making it gentle and nourishing to the hide and hair as it gently cleans deep, down to the roots of each hair follicle. Fortified with Sullivan’s VITA HAIR™ a nourishing vitamin package to boost hair and skin health without added weight to hair. Designed to be used in a foamer.

A true “game changer” in hair performance!

Available June 1st

Sullivan’s

Teflon Combs™

Get more hair perfection with Sullivan’s new Teflon Combs.

Teflon is a solid polymer that is considered to be one of the world’s most slippery and water resistant substances. It has one of the lowest measured coefficients of friction of any compound. For our application, it creates a baked-on surface to the comb teeth for reduced friction and a non-stick lubricant that allows the comb to glide through the hair easier, especially with a sticky substance like adhesives. Although not full-proof, especially since adhesive is still a very sticky substance, you will however be glad to see a 40 to 50% improvement of less matting, less hair drag, less static and less stick to the comb when fitting a leg. It is definitely easier to clean adhesives from the comb and saves time while fitting. Available as Sullivan Combs, Fluffer Combs, and Double-Stuff Comb.

Another industry first from Sullivan’s ... the Innovative Leader! 14 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2013


Sullivan’s

HairAdhesive Savior Breakdown ™

Available June 1st

Hair Savior™ is just that! Finally, an adhesive breakdown that is healthy for your leg hair. Hair Savior™ adhesive breakdown features a proprietary blend of the purest, mild cosmetic grade plant-based ester technologies to naturally attack and gently remove adhesives and touch-ups away from the hair. These specific plant based surfactants have been specially identified for their unique ability to naturally counter-act the tackiness of adhesives, changing their rubberized molecular resin structure to gently dissolve the bond from the hair without any harsh stripping action. This properly balanced pH formula prevents heavy, oily residues and will not create heat. Contains the Sullivan’s VITA HAIR™ nourishing vitamin package. Hair Savior™ is the first liquid adhesive breakdown product with added hair vitamins to hydrate and regenerate the hair. Mild and gentle, no harsh chemicals like other removers.

Hair Savior™ ... the showman’s choice for repetitive show schedules and leg hair health!

from the editor

Coulda, woulda, shoulda

N Take action.

ot only does this issue showcase the Junior Nationals, it encompasses many of the opportunities we have to become involved within the livestock industry. As exhibitors from across the nation load up the truck and trailer to head out to the Junior Nationals, they are heading to more than just another cattle show. They are in transit to a judging, poster, picture, speech, cooking, showmanship and salesmanship contest as well. It is a big mistake for an individual to sit back and watch as others not only participate, but take a leading role within a junior association. Don’t be a wall flower. Participate. You will have a greater sense of accomplishment and respect for others around you as well if you dive in head first. Instead of “coulda, woulda, shoulda,” sign up for the contest, run for the board, strive to bet the best in every way possible. Some of my favorite memories and greatest friendships evolved

from my involvement within the livestock industry but outside of the show ring. Being on the American Junior Maine-Anjou Association’s Board of Directors, livestock judging, and speaking to a group of young exhibitors at their 4-H meeting about The Showtimes and what is possible for them to achieve, just scratch the surface of where my participation has taken me. Success is a chain reaction triggered by action. Don’t go to Junior Nationals and sit on your tack box waiting for your class to be called to the ring. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to represent your breed as a junior board member. Don’t regret not putting forth an effort in contests. Take action. Be sure to check out our Junior National Preview starting on page 44. Until next time, Lisa Reid, Owner/Field Editor

I want to personally thank you all for your great contributions to MCC Bennett Center over the years and especially during this past Friday night! The Alumni sign was perfect! The contributions by The Showtimes was spectacular. And then you topped it off with purchasing the Rockies tickets. To make my whole evening even better, to see Brian, Laurie and Lisa be awarded the All Star Alumni honor was truly touching and well deserved.

“My competiveness wraps up all of the values I have come to appreciate growing up in the cattle industry. It is my motivation to work hard. Working hard taught me responsibility. Responsibility taught me to have respect for others who work in the industry and my family and Christian values have gotten me through the rough spots that life brings. My life verse is taken from Philippians 4:13. It says “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” This is the scripture I live my life by and the reason I can do the things I have accomplished. Jesus gives me the strength to achieve my goals. Without Him, I am nothing. With this verse, along with the values my parents have given me and the opportunities that showing cattle has afforded me I have no other option than to succeed in life.”

GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA JUNE 15-21, 2013 Held with the Chianina 2013 Junior National Show

MAINE-ANJOU JUNIOR NATIONALS History of the Maine-Anjou Breed The Maine-Anjou breed originated in the northwestern part of France. The Maine-Anjou evolved as a dual-purpose breed, with the cows used for milk production and the bull calves fed for market. The first Maine-Anjou imported into North America came to Canada in 1969. These cattle were then introduced to the United States through artificial insemination. The Maine-Anjou Society, Inc. was

incorporated in Nebraska in 1969. It did not change to the American Maine-Anjou Association until 1976. In 2001, the AMAA purchased a building in Platte City, Missouri as headquarters. The Maine-Anjou breed excels in performance/feed efficiency, disposition and superb carcass traits. Dominance of feeding trials coupled with favorable returns on dollars invested have made Maine-Anjou cattle a feedlot manager’s dream.

BREMER SHOW CATTLE

№ 48

BY KENDALL BREMER, IA

WRITTEN BY LISA REID, CO

Excellence is not just a cliche but a way of life for Kendall Bremer and Bremer Show Cattle. Growing up in a family where his dad established a tradition of excellence before Kendall or any of his siblings started showing, they have continued to pass that knowledge on down - implementing it within their families and businesses. Kendall and his family have been involved in the livestock industry their entire lives. Kendall’s dad had his first national champion back in 1981. That was just the start of what contributed to the success for the Bremers and their cattle. Kendall’s parents, Kenny and Audrey Bremer raised the winningest female in Maine-Anjou History; “Jinger,” shown by Kendall’s sister, Raelynn Schroder, who won the open shows in Kansas City, Louisville, and Denver. While still a junior, Kendall exhibited only a handful of steers, but when he did, he was very fortunate with them. In showing four steers at the three majors, he made the premium sale or Sale of Champions with all four steers. “My family never paid more than $2,000.00 for any of them!” Kendall noted. In addition to his sister, Kendall has two brothers, Kevin and Keith, who have both remained connected to the industry. Kevin currently resides in Nebraska where he loves the steer side of things. Keith lives in Arkansas where his kids show a little bit. Kendall, however, has remained in Iowa, where in 2003 he started to make his own footprints on the show cattle industry. Following his graduation from Iowa State University in 2003 with a degree in Agriculture Business, Kendall returned home to

work for his dad. Bremer Show Cattle was a way for him to individualize the handful of cattle that he would buy and resell at that time. What started out as five or six head has grown to the sale of around 75 head per year. The fall of 2013 will mark the tenth anniversary of Bremer Show Cattle. When reflecting on the life of his business, Kendall exclaimed “Boy time flies!” Bremer Show Cattle’s focus is mostly on selling elite show heifers. Kendall and his dad run around 100 cows including several different breeds, with the majority being Maine-Anjou. To further their genetics, the Bremers utilize an extensive embryo program. “I love a big win with any of my customers, but it is even more special when we raise them.” The Bremer family’s hallmark of excellence is evident in Bremer Show Cattle. For three years running they have had more than ten grand or reserve grand champions at the three majors : Kansas City, Louisville, and Denver. “Perhaps the biggest success


13 20 IOR L N A JU ION IEW AT EV N PR

S T

that Bremer Show Cattle has achieved, however, is the fact that 90 percent of my customers are repeat.” Kendall, however, has his aim set higher as one of his biggest goals is to win Supreme Heifer at the North American in Louisville. “We have tried awfully hard and have come close, but we keep coming up short. Louisville is by far my favorite show in the country, and it would mean so much to have a customer win it.” In addition to Louisville, Kendall hopes not only to run more cows and increase the number of premium cattle they raise but to sell more cattle nationwide as well. Whether it’s at home or on the road at shows, the passion, skill and time that Kendall has invested in his cattle have given him a permanent home as one of the top producers in the industry. Looking to the future, Kendall is anticipating the days when he has kids who show and the tradition of excellence his parents established is passed down to future generations.

I’m so thankful for all that my parents do, taking care of stuff at home. I spend so much time away from home. I am grateful to have a crew of the best guys working with me at all the shows. I am also blessed to have a loving girlfriend that puts up with the traveling, showing, and hunting for that next great one. Last but not least, a big thank you to my ever growing customer base that puts their faith in me. Thank you to everybody who helps make Bremer Show Cattle the business it is today. I am really just a leader of a great group of people.”

HEREFORD JUNIOR NATIONALS National Junior Hereford Association With close to 3,000 active members, the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) is one of the largest, strongest and most active junior cattle programs in the country. Over the years, members of this association have gone on to earn international and domestic respect as models for youth organizational success. The NJHA, through its extensive educational

programs, continues to lay the foundation for the beef industry’s future leaders. The traditions of the past coupled with the energy of today’s board of directors have created a progressive approach to further develop a meaningful and educational association focus. A 12-member board of directors governs the NJHA, with each person serving a three-year term. The members of the NJHA board of


13 20 IOR L N A JU ION IEW AT EV N PR

directors serve as ambassadors for the Hereford industry. As directors, they motivate their peers and promote the Hereford breed. They strive to exemplify the positive traits that an association of this caliber possesses. “Advantage, Opportunity” is the NJHA logo. These are the building blocks toward the NJHA goal of providing educational and leadership development programs, assisting with breed promotion and hosting a variety of activities. Junior National Hereford Expo One of the largest junior breed shows in the U.S., the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) is the highlight of the NJHA’s summer activities. “Show Me the Herefords” will be July 1421, 2013 at the American Royal Complex in Kansas City. Known to many as the ultimate family vacation, this summer show provides an opportunity for competition between junior members and their cattle projects. A hands-on type of program for youth provides educational, leadership and motivational forums. During the event youth can participate in 22-skill based contests. The early bird entry deadline is May 1st with the final entry and ownership deadline being June 1. Youth looking for information about the 2013 show may visit JrHereford.org to find rules, entry information and applications.

PRIDE Pride stands for Program for Reaching Individuals Determined to Excel. While the JNHE promotes learning aspects of showing cattle and educational activities associated with related contests, the NJHA’s Program for Reaching Individuals Determined to Excel (PRIDE) Convention focuses on leadership development. Junior members, parents and advisors from all parts of the country participate in the event. During the three-day event, participants listen to nationally known speakers and participate in leadership workshops, which enhance the individual’s leadership talents, communication and beef industry knowledge. This year the NJHA is teaming up with the National Junior Maine-Anjou association and juniors will travel to South Dakota State University (SDSU), July 28-31 for the “Faces of Leadership” Convention. Highlights will include farms tours, a visit to Trans Ova Genetics and a tour and workshops at SDSU. The registration deadline is June 15 and the cost is $300. To register for PRIDE please visit jrhereford.org. Scholarship Opportunities for Hereford Youth The NJHA is an organization devoted to the development of outstanding leadership potential and motivation to seek advanced education. Striving to provide the foundation upon which interested youth can build their future in the agriculture industry, the NJHA

S T

and Hereford Youth Foundation of America offers close to $50,000 of scholarships and awards to its membership each year. The spring scholarship deadline is April 1st and the fall deadline is Sept. 15. Hereford Heritage The Hereford breed originated as a product of necessity. Efficient, adaptable and hardy, these cattle have always had a face to remember. Nearly 300 years ago, farmers of Herefordshire, England, founded the breed in response to demand created by Britain’s Industrial Revolution. Efficient production, high yields and sound reproduction were of utmost importance. Benjamin Tomkins is who to thank for the original design. A primary founder of the breed, Tomkins began in 1742 with a bull calf from the cow Silver and two cows, Pidgeon and Mottle. Henry Clay, Kentucky statesman, brought Herefords to the United States in 1817. A true Hereford identity was not established in the states until William H. Sotham and Erastus Corning, Albany, N.Y., began the first breeding herd in 1840. Among other renowned early Hereford


reford hereford hereford hereford hereford hereford hereford

breeders were Charles Gudgell and Thomas A. Simpson of Missouri. Their big break came with the importation of Anxiety 4, a bull credited as being the “father of American Herefords.” A few of these early breeders came together in Chicago on June 22, 1881. The result was the foundation of the American Hereford Cattle Breeders Association, later renamed the American Hereford Association (AHA). Its purpose was two-fold: to keep the breed’s records and to promote the interests of its breeders. Seven years later Warren Gammon noticed naturally hornless Herefords at the Trans-Mississippi World’s Fair in Omaha, Neb. He decided to fix the hornless trait using the bull Giant and 11 Hereford females. In 1910 the American Polled Hereford Association (APHA) was founded. The two Hereford associations merged in 1995, keeping the AHA title. The AHA now registers all horned and polled Herefords. Through the years Beginning in the 1960s, breeders focused their attention on tools such as performance testing, artificial insemination, objective measures, embryo transfer and sire evaluation. These tools allowed the rapid genetic change needed to bring Herefords in sync with consumer and industry expectations. A broad genetic base allowed Hereford breeders to select stock comparable in size and performance to competing “exotic” European breeds. Although major changes were made, breeders didn’t lose sight of fundamental Hereford traits, particularly fertility and docility. A new goal was established in the late 1980s — formal documentation of Hereford performance in the feedlot and on the rail. Colorado State University animal scientists conducted related tests for the AHA from 1991 to 1993. Superiority was noted in average daily gain,

feed conversion and cost of gain.

№ 52

Further studies in the early 1990s demonstrated the quality of Hereford beef. Regardless of marbling, Hereford steers consistently excelled in tenderness, juiciness, flavor and palatability. These findings led to the formation of a branded beef product known as Certified Hereford Beef® (CHB). Hereford history was made during the second week of 2005. CHB had its first million pound week, when packers sold approximately 1.3 million pounds of product to participating retail locations and food service outlets. The CHB program has experienced 40% annual sales growth since 2000, indicating the power of its mission: To strengthen demand for Hereford cattle, Certified Hereford Beef LLC commits superior customer service, competitive pricing and creative marketing strategies to the sale of tender, great tasting Certified Hereford Beef within retail grocery stores, wholesale food distributors and food service outlets. Today’s Hereford Today’s versatile Hereford continues to be the benchmark against which other breeds are measured as cattlemen continue to seek the optimum traits inherent in Herefords. Those traits critical to survival in the cattle business are exactly the same traits Hereford offers today’s industry: ● Fertility ● Reproductive performance ● Feed efficiency ● Optimum size and growth ● Documented feedlot and carcass superiority ● Low maintenance costs ● Optimum muscling ● Optimum milk ● Adaptability and hardiness ● Superior disposition ● Soundness ● Crossbreeding advantages

ANGUS JUNIOR NATIONALS The National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) is the highlight of the summer for many Angus families, and this year the event takes place July 5-11 in Kansas City, Mo. While the cattle shows are the main attraction, the week also includes the showmanship competition, junior activities and a variety of educational contests. “The National Junior Angus Show is more than a cattle show. It’s a week-long vacation with

friends and family,” says Robin Ruff, junior activities director for the American Angus Association®. “It also gives youth a chance to expand their horizons and build life-long skills.” Sponsored by the Missouri Angus and junior Angus associations, this year the NJAS is themed “Aberdeen in Twenty Thirteen.” The week-long event kicks off Saturday, July 6


13 20 IOR L N A JU ION IEW AT EV N PR

with the Parade of States during the Opening Ceremonies at Hale Arena, home of the American Royal. NJSA Cattle Shows More than 1,100 head of cattle are expected to walk through the NJAS show ring this summer. Chris Mullinix, El Dorado, Kan., will select champions in the owned heifer division. Judging bred-andowned heifers, cow-calf pairs, and bred-and-owned bulls will be Jonathan Perry, Fayetteville, Tenn. Steers will be evaluated by Ryan Rathmann, Lubbock, Texas. States will also compete for the Best Five Head, while individual members will vie for Junior Premier Breeder and the Silver Pitcher Award. NJAS Showmanship Contest The 47th Annual NJAS Showmanship Contest is sure to be an attention-grabbing event. Two junior Angus members from each state will be given the opportunity to compete for the title of “Top

official logo

Showman.” This year judges are Lacey Robinson, Olsburg, Kan.; Jason Hoffman, Thedford, Neb.; and Randy White, Waukomis, Okla. NJAS Carcass Steer Contest A different perspective to the traditional cattle show, the Carcass Steer Contest allows Angus juniors to increase their awareness of the important role Angus cattle play on the consumer’s plate. Dr. Curtis and Ann Long of Briarwood Angus Farms, Butler, Mo., contribute cash prizes for the steer contest through their permanent endowment fund administered by the Angus Foundation. Long believes the contest teaches juniors more than how to care for an animal, but to also produce a high-quality product a consumer expects from the Angus breed: “Participants need to know the results of their cattle so they can learn, go home and make a better product for their customers.”

S T

Educational Contests Outside the show ring, hundreds of junior members will participate in more than a dozen educational contests. Youth can enter individually in the following: prepared and extemporaneous public speaking, career development, graphic design, writing, photography, livestock judging, video and poster competitions. In addition, each state can enter a team in the quiz bowl, team sales and fitting contests, as well as the American Angus Auxiliary-sponsored All-American Certified Angus Beef® (CAB®) Cook-Off, herdsmanship and scrapbook contests. Mentoring Program Beyond friendly competition, the NJAS mentoring program is a fun activity throughout the week that partners senior and novice members together to get to know one another and feel comfortable

meeting other juniors. “During the NJAS Angus youth are encouraged to make friends and learn from each other,” Ruff says. “The mentoring program can help prepare younger members for a successful future.”

Association also provides programs and services to farmers, ranchers and others who rely on Angus to produce quality genetics for the beef industry and quality beef for consumers. For more information about Angus cattle and the American Angus Association, visit www. ANGUS.org.

Angus Means Business The American Angus Association is the nation’s largest beef breed organization, serving more than 25,000 members across the United States, Canada and several other countries. It’s home to an extensive breed registry that grows by nearly 300,000 animals each year. The

SHORTHORN JUNIOR NATIONALS Funding the Future Sale Knowledge Empowers Youth (KEY) Conference Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. Live auction held in conjunction with NJSS consisting of frozen lots, travel packages and Shorthorn memorabilia of which all proceeds go to benefit the AJSA. History on the breed The Shorthorn breed originated on the North-

eastern coast of England in the counties of Northcumberland, Durham, York and Lincoln. The breed later spread to Scotland and then to America in 1783. When first brought to Virginia, the breed had attained the name Durham. It was the first improved breed to be imported into the new world and the qualities the animal possessed made it in great demand and its influence spread rapidly across America.


Numbers 20.000 More than 20,000 head are maintained in the association’s whole herd registry

History of the AJSA History was made July 22, 1968 in Louisville, Ky., during the first National Shorthorn Youth Conference when Mark Tracy of Boulder, Colorado was elected as the first president of the newly formed American Junior Shorthorn Association (AJSA). The National Shorthorn Youth Conferences have continued since, being held every summer in states all across the US. The first National Junior Shorthorn Show was held in Springfield, Illinois in 1973. The two events merged into one week full of activities held simultaneously since 1981. Since these modest beginnings, the AJSA now boasts over 4000 junior members from all across the US participating in one of the top Junior beef programs available. Youth have opportunities available to them through this association that led to unprecedented careers not only in the agricultural industry, but the skills and lessons learned from a Shorthorn project can be easily adapted to careers in any industry. Mission of the AJSA The AJSA strives to brighten the future of the Shorthorn breed by engaging its members in opportunities that develop character, promote valuable skills, and build life-long friendships.

reunion of the decade

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2013

LIMOUSIN JUNIOR NATIONALS The Limousin breed came to North America in 1968 with the import of Prince Pompadour, the patriarch of American and Canadian Limousin. He was bred AI to over 13,000 females and later imports expanded to the breed to what it is today. The first National Sale was held at National Western Stock Show in 1971 and the first National Junior Limousin Show and Congress was held in 1979. Today, the Limousin breed holds shows nationwide and has around 400 head and 200 juniors at its National Junior Show. The

National Junior Limousin Show and Congress gives juniors the opportunity to show multiple times with the All-American Futurity Medal of Excellence show immediately following the junior show. Numerous competitions await exhibitors from quiz bowl and sales talk to magazine advertising and the judging contest as well as the Tenderfoot program for new juniors to bond with more experienced exhibitors. Exhibitors as young as five will enjoy the show including a fireworks display on the 4th of July!

simmental showdown

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA JULY 8-13, 2013

SIMMENTAL JUNIOR NATIONALS The American Junior Simmental Association The American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA) is the official youth organization of the American Simmental Association; founded in 1975, the AJSA has more than 3,500 members. The AJSA strives to enhance youth potential for life success by instilling a comprehensive understanding of the beef industry while developing leadership, networking, and communica-

tion skills. The AJSA Board of Trustees offers leadership development beyond the boundaries of local or state groups. Sixteen AJSA Trustees govern the AJSA; eight are elected each year at the National Classic. Trustees are elected for a two-year term and unless age limited may serve two terms. During their two-year terms, Trustees develop progressive leadership and educational activities to serve junior members

across the nation. The AJSA Trustees make recommendations for new programs and ideas to present for final approval to the Board of Trustees of the American Simmental Association with the goal of developing the leadership potential of the junior members, and promoting Simmental cattle. The National Classic: More than just a cattle show! The National Classic is the highlight of the AJSA summer events and is co-sponsored by the American Simmental Association and the host state Simmental association. The National Classic provides an opportunity for AJSA members to showcase their knowledge of the cattle industry and their cattle. Unlike any other beef breed junior national event, the National Classic requires exhibitors to participate in four of five educational competitions to be eligible to exhibit cattle. Competitions in public speaking, interview, livestock judging, and sales talk competitions at the Classics use real-life experience to develop confidence and communication skills for our youth — the future of the Simmental industry. Juniors from across the nation vie for top honors to place in the Top 20 of each of the contests and the esteemed Overall Top 20 of each age division (junior, intermediate, and senior). For many, the National Classic is the ultimate family vacation. This summer show provides an oppor-

tunity for both junior members and their cattle projects. Social events such as dinners, dances, and the banquet are highlights for both juniors and adults. Many of the AJSA activities are showcased at the National Classic each summer The 2013 National Classic— Simmental Showdown! Judge: Kyle Colyer, Idaho The theme adopted for the ASA’s 33rd Annual National Classic – “Simmental Showdown” – alludes to the intense, but congenial competition that has been so evident in the 32 previous events. Since its inception, the Classic has created a learning environment based in large part on competition and inter-state rivalries. When all is said and done, however, the anticipated crowd of more than 300 AJSA members who participate will return home with: greater knowledge about their chosen breed and the beef industry; boatloads of new friends; and, memories to last until the 2014 Classic, when they’ll gather to do it all over again. “The Nebraska Simmental Association (NSA) is proud to host the 2013 National Classic once again,” says NSA Executive Secretary Diane Duren, who is doing double duty as event coordinator. “We’re encouraging Simmental breeders from all over the country to join us for this spectacular event. The nation’s premier American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA)

S T

members will be showcasing their abundant talents and skills as they relate to the beef industry.” ASA’s Annual National Classic is returning to Nebraska for the third time. The first was held in Lincoln in 1985 and the second in Kearney in 2003. The NSA has also hosted five North Central Regional Classics over the years. Nebraska Juniors have served in numerous leadership positions within the AJSA. Cattle activities and competitions will be held at the spacious ultra-modern, Lancaster Event Center. The huge facility will easily stall the 400+ head of cattle expected for the event under one roof. With the show ring just footsteps from the barn, and the air conditioned Lincoln room, where meals will be served, is just around the corner, you’ll find everything you need right at your fingertips. Not only are the facilities inside set up well for cattle but the outside facilities are too. Cattle will tie out in the evenings to permanent gates on mulch provided by the Nebraska Simmental Association. Due to fairgrounds regulations, no cattle are permitted to tie to the trailer, be sure to plan and pack accordingly. What’s Happening A full schedule of activ-

Highlights include a tour of Memorial Stadium, fabled home of the many-time National Champion University of Nebraska Cornhusker football team, a dance, a free outing to the local water park, a Stock Show University fitting clinic, and a tour of Vogler Semen Center. Plus AJSA President, Koty Allen will throw out the first pitch at the Amarillo vs. Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game on Thursday night. With the University of Nebraska at the Lancaster Event Center back door, Animal Science faculty and judging team members will be heavily involved in the conduct of various aspects of the Classic. The Nebraska Simmental Association members are anxious and excited to welcome the AJSA back to Nebraska.

CHIANINA JUNIOR NATIONALS History of the Breed Chianina (pronounced Kee-a-nee-na) is one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the world. Originating in Central Italy, Chianina were initially introduced into the United States in 1971, when the first Chianina semen was imported. The 1st Chianina calf was born in the U.S. was a black half-blooded Chi x Angus/Holstein bull calf born on Jan. 31 1972. In 1975, Italian

Fullblood Chianina were exported from Canada into United States. The ACA registers composite breeds. Chianina breeders have shown interest in “composite breeds” of Chianina. The first such registry program to be adopted by the ACA in 1976 was Chiangus registry. Three more composite registry started in 1986, Chiford, Chimaine, Red Chiangus.

bred Shorthorn cattle and showed frequently at the American Royal, Louisville, and Denver along with a number of shows in the Midwest. He attended Dodge City Community College on a judging scholarship and finished his degree at Kansas State University. Since then he has worked with his family as well as honing his marketing skills for a few businesses outside of the ag industry. My story however is a bit different. I grew up as an Air Force brat and pastor’s daughter. In other words we moved around quite a bit. I had the opportunity to see all parts of this wonderful country and have actually visited 49 out of 50 states! I started shooting pictures with my first camera at age 9. Traveling as much as we did gave me the opportunity to capture pictures of the ocean, mountains, wheat fields, and sky scrapers. Early on I learned how to use a 35mm camera and process film. That knowledge helps me everyday to compose shots

in my head before I press that button. I attended Washburn University and received a BBA in finance in 2001. Because every artist has a business degree right? After working as an auditor (you can stop laughing now) I admitted to myself that my true calling was to be a full time mother to my children and a full time photographer. Over the past 11 years I have had the opportunity to work closely with some the most influential photographers in America. Learning traditional composition, cutting edge technology, and how to push the limits. I established a business that specialized in portrait and fine art photography. In a few short years I was privileged to call 2 professional ballet companies among my clients as well as a variety of businesses and of course families. I started competing images with Professional Photographers of America (longest established professional association of photographers) five years ago. Roughly 70,000 images are MAY/JUNE 2013 THE SHOWTIMES 79


submitted from the nations top photographers every year. Only ten percent are accepted as merit worthy. I have had 8 merit prints in that time. I have also been blessed enough to have a few images chosen to be in traveling exhibits hanging in the Smithsonian as well as a number of other major art museums. I have also been named as one of the top ten photographers in Kansas the past two years and received the national honor of Photographer of the Year, an award only bestowed on less than 1% of all photographers entering print competition. Then I met Mr. Anderson. A single dad meets a single mom. A bona-fide city girl meets a Kansas farm boy. And I couldn’t be happier. We combined to become a family of seven. Abby (16), Morgan (13), Connor (13), Parker (10), and Lilly (6) keep us busy and constantly amused! Our house is a constant mix of ballet shoes, soccer cleats, muck boots, and framed cattle pictures ready to ship out. I think we had 30 head in the living room last night. How many people can say that? Images are how I communicate. I see the world around me as a constant possibility for an image. The dew on a flower. A child peeking around the corner. A sunset. So you can imagine what is was like to really start spending time on a farm. Everything was new. The barns. The animals. The fence lines. The sprawling pastures. The people. It was official – I was in love and there was no turning back. When it comes to livestock photography, as in any photography, you are drawn in first by

impact. Whether it’s a spring pair, a massive bull in a snowstorm, the rolling hills of central Kansas, or a masterfully fit tailhead the image should ignite an emotion. Even a profile sale or promotion shot should make you stop in your tracks and look again. And impact isn’t always the obvious. When I take a picture of spray cans in a stall I want you to think of the smell of the aerosol and the time spent on a calf with your friends and family. In this day and age of technology and Facebook the population is becoming more and more visual. And what people see, sometimes for only a split second, will make an impression that will stick. The question is, what impression do you want people to have in that instant? Originally the business started as a few family friends and a few fine art print all being sold through my existing portrait studio. But things grew very quickly and we realized soon that the livestock branch of photography would have to become its own company. That “branch” is now pretty much the whole tree! In just shy of 6 months Legacy Livestock Imaging has nearly six thousand very loyal fans on Facebook (at the time of writing). We have had the humbling pleasure of working for or promoting some of the most influential breeders, steer traders and companies in the business. We have also been able to get to know and work for some amazing families along the way. We are excited everyday to have the opportunity to visit farms, share your everyday lives, photograph your livestock and promote it in a way that is truly reflective of its quality, excellence, and your hard work.▪

SHOW.RITE TIP

A GOOD EXAMPLE

Look up to, respect, and learn from the ones that go before us. BY DAVE GUYER, IL

very unprofessional in the way I handled a certain situation. To make a long story short one of my own kids were very disrespectful at ringside and when they came out of the ring we had a “chat”. Now in looking back, my “chat” should have been at a different time and place but what’s done is done. On the flip side I recently went to an educational event and met a couple friends that we all can learn from, Matt and Jake.

T

his month we are talking about something that isn’t directly a show tip but if you follow the right path within this industry it can open up many doors. As young people in any industry we need to look up to, respect, and learn from the ones that go before us, “been there done that”. A few things have happened in recent times to spark this article and one of them was a personal one. I recently was

88 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2013

They were so respectful and willing to listen, learn, and perform. So there is learning all the way around for us all. We as adults need to be good leaders and always know, like me, there is a place and a time, to mentor ones like Matt and Jake, be a parent when we need to be, and be a good example whenever we are out and about. We can also realize that the path our kids have chosen is not all a bad deal. Some play sports and some kids choose livestock as their sport. It teaches discipline, dedication, and reward. When you turn on the news today it can make you sick, so be proud we have an industry that is a great place to raise our kids. On the flip side you youth need to be respectful to the industry and appreciate your parents, mentors, and leaders for allowing you to participate in something that brings you much opportunities in life. I don’t know where I would be right now if it


wasn’t for this industry. Everything I have in life, which includes the most precious to me, my family, has evolved from the livestock world. Now how do we turn all this gabber into a show tip for the month is the question? Let’s all stop and listen, open up your minds, and whether you are young or old always be willing to learn. In this business as competition rises, be one of the ones that want to get better. Don’t be one on the side lines saying wrong things about a winner as you have your tail between your legs, but be the one on the side line watching that same grand drive and looking at it as a challenge to get better, work harder, and get more reward. I meet many “go getters” in my travels and I am proud to have two of my own but my challenge to the youth is to be a “go getter” and my challenge to all

adults including myself is to be a better role model. Let’s stand proud of the livestock show industry and together we can make some news, but let’s make it good news instead of what we see on the news today. Remember to contact your ShowRite dealer today to make the first step in bettering your project. Feed nutrition is of the up most importance today for the show ring. Watch the winners and they all have one thing in common... that is a good feeding program. Pick a proven feed company like ShowRite that is willing to give back. Ask your ShowRite dealer about feed tag programs, shows, educational events, etc. that may be available in your area. This is just a start to people helping ours to keep this livestock sport alive.

“PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.”

’m not sure who said that but whoever it may be, they were absolutely correct. Not only does this quote apply to sports, but I have also applied it to my everyday life as I strive to attain all my goals. My name is Austin Buzanowski, and I currently attend the University of Wyoming with plans to graduate this fall. I am majoring in Animal Science with the Business option with minors in Meat Science and Ag Business. I have grown up on my parents’ Hereford operation, Snowshoe Cattle Company, in Southeastern Montana. Additionally, my sister Rachael and I are second generation Hereford breeders. Those of you who share my enthusiasm for Hereford cattle may have seen me at the Junior National Hereford Expo, Denver, or Kansas City working the show ring with fellow Jr. Board members or showing a homeraised heifer. Growing up I had a major transition that I was constantly making between sports and showing cattle. Despite the fact that I grew up in a small rural town in Southeastern

Montana, my friends and fellow teammates did not have much of an agricultural background. It was hard to relate my experiences and responsibilities from home when, after practice, all my friends would go home and play video games. Meanwhile, I was expected to feed my show animals and do whatever other chores were necessary before heading into the house for dinner. However, I still managed to change directions as necessary and fully participate in both activities. I know I drove my parents crazy as they had to constantly take me places so I could participate, but I am very grateful that they did as I learned many lessons and gained many skills that have helped me in everyday life. Juggling multiple activities certainly helped me learn about responsibility and accountability. I learned early that if I failed to put in enough effort in either activity that I would pay for it later. I knew that I may not always hold the champion heifer, but there was no excuse for not having her look the part or being able to properly present her. I applied the same mentality to sports. I was not going to be outworked or out-hustled, even when I may have been out-matched or out-sized (although that didn’t really happen until college). Because of my participation in both activities, I have had a lot of great experiences. Due to my hard work in sports, I was able to assist my high school football team to a state championship. Not

only this, but after graduation was asked to report to fall camp as a walk-on for the University of Wyoming Football Team. With a new coach beginning that season, there were high expectations which we were able to live up to as we went on to win the New Mexico Bowl (three overtimes later!). Playing in the “big leagues” was a huge accomplishment for me, however, due to injury and other factors I decided it was time to retire. I then decided to pursue my dream to run for the National Junior Hereford Association Board of Directors. After meeting and getting acquainted with many of the Directors over the years, I felt it was my turn to walk in their shoes. As a kid I looked up to all the Directors and held them in such high regard that I wanted to be just like them. I was elected to a three year term on the National Junior Hereford Board in the summer of 2010 and I will be retiring at this summer’s event in Kansas City, MO (by the way if you haven’t picked out your Hereford heifer yet you should probably get on that!). The week I ran for the Board was easily the most stressful week of my life up to that point. I was constantly going around working contests, the show ring, and filling in wherever needed. I felt like I never saw my cattle until it was time to start fitting. All that hard work sure paid off though when I was handed that maroon blazer at the banquet on the final night of Nationals. It may not have fit quite right in the sleeves and shoulders, but I knew it was where I was meant to be. The next task was to see what I could achieve once I put it on and to live up to the image I had formed of a Board member since I was a kid. It is hard to put into words what an experience I have had while serving on the Board, but I will try. I have met some amazing people during my term and I cannot thank them enough for their support. I would also like to thank the moms of all the “Boardies” who lend a helping hand judging the numerous contests and also preparing meals when we are on the fly at Junior Nationals. I have learned much from my time served on the Board from both good and not as good ex92 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE

WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” – Mathew 28:19 BY BRAD HENDERSON, CO

pray everyone is having a great spring. Here on the Henderson place calves are hitting the ground, the grass is turning green (wish there was a lot more of it), and we are all watching the results of our breeding decisions last year and already discussing what we will do different next year. A growing cattle operation is always looking for the gold that’s on the other side of that next hill. A dying operation is one that believes the only way to do things is the way they’ve always done them. To put it another way, they have turned from being outwardly focused to only being focused on themselves. There is a key word in the verse above from the end of the book of Mathew……..Jesus says “Go”. The disciples had been given all the tools to do the work. 102 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2013

They had witnessed his death and resurrection and had gathered together to get their marching orders. Jesus didn’t tell them to build a big fancy building on that spot and the eleven of them meet once a week and tell war stories from the Garden of Gethsemane. He told them to get to work. Christ’s Kingdom was out there and they were to go and start building it. Christ said, “No one knows the day nor the hour” when He would return. But in multiple places in the New Testament He made it very clear, He expects us all to be working on the same goal he gave the eleven disciples so long ago. We are supposed to be in the battle fighting to get to the other side of that next hill, always expanding His Kingdom. His Kingdom… NOT OURS! This principle of being turned outward; constantly in growth mode and always being on the move and focused on others is foundational. It applies to you as an individual. It applies to marriages and families. It applies to all businesses including ranches. It applies to churches. And it applies to nations. The instant a husband or wife becomes selfish and starts focusing on themselves and not their spouses needs, the marriage and family begins to fall apart. Same goes for brothers and sisters within the family. If it all becomes about them and not their family or siblings, their lives will begin to darken and it may be years for them to heal the wounds they’ve caused, if ever. The outward/inward principle applies to Businesses- the instant a business stops looking for new opportunities and new work it begins sliding into


ruin. How does it apply to churches? As long as a church body is focused on going out and reaching the lost with the Good News of the Gospel and bringing more lost sheep into Christ’s Kingdom it will be a body filled with light and energy. But as soon as they decide they have done enough, and they turn in on themselves, they are no better than some exclusive club and they will fade away within the walls of their nice building with the doors barred on the inside to keep new people out. Now let’s look at the United States. This country was born in the fight for freedom. Not just the freedom of our own people but due to our biblical roots, we fought for the freedom of all men and women. That unceasing struggle for freedom bred a mentality that all things were possible. So much so that our young little country broke the bands of gravity and went to the moon! This country was founded on freedom and self-reliance. We once viewed someone placing limits on how far we could fly as bondage and slavery. Now all we hear about is how everyone is entitled to a “safety net” and a long list of so called “rights”. In my book there is no difference between an “entitlement” and a logging chain locked to my ankle. With the wonderful freedom

to succeed also comes the freedom to fail. You can’t have one without the other. It’s your choice- freedom or slavery? Read your history books---theirs is no middle ground. What the government gives it can take away. Our rights come from our Creator and we are to serve Him only. One last step- how does the outward/inward principle apply to you. Where is your focus? Is it on others? Is it on a big dream on the other side of that next hill? Or is it all about you? Is all you ever think about your needs and your comfort? Is your circle of friends constantly expanding or is it stagnant and shrinking? Is your life growing and on the move or have you stopped and sliding backwards? Life is like the weather--- it’s always changing and as long as your heart is beating you can decide to turn it all around and get moving again. If you’ve turned inward (and we all do at times in our lives), stop and figure out what you need to change to get moving again. Ask God to fill your sails with His wind of purpose and for Him to put his hand on the rudder of your life and steer you in the direction He wants you to go and get back to serving others and not yourself. I challenge you to go impact this world in a way that will live on for generations. Don’t live a life that ends when you do. ■

I’m a 6th generation rancher, where our family raised Charolais cattle and showed them all over the US and Canada. Along with showing cattle I have been showing pigs all across the US since I was 2 years old. I began raising show pigs in 2003 and selling them to 4-H and FFA kids around the country. I was very active in the FFA, where I was a Wyoming State FFA Officer and then became a National Collegiate Agriculture Ambassador. It is my goal to continue promoting the agriculture industry, and help people understand the importance of agriculture in their daily lives. This recipe was created in 2003 when I competed in the Pace Picante Cook-off, it was the winning recipe that year, hope everyone enjoys.

ifteen years old, born and raised in Wellington, TX, lived and raised around cattle. Showing has always been a part of my life, growing up with Barry Long, my dad, and Koby Long, my brother, showing steers was expected! Hard work and determination has always been the key to our success. Showing steers has been a family tradition since my dad and his brother where kids. My brother and I have always shared the barn and all the responsibilities with our cousins, Tucker, Bailey and Trey Long. I thought it was awesome when Koby won Houston in 2011, but when I won March, 2013, I can only say, that as a family, we are truly blessed. How many brothers can say they have both won Houston! With that, I would like to thank my parents, without them pushing me and wanting me to succeed I could not have accomplished this! They are my biggest fans! I would also like to thank my brother Koby, for always being there for me and teaching me, that only your best is good enough. The Copus family deserves a big thank you for all his hard work and help with my steers. I would also like to thank my county agent, Katy White, for all her hard work she put in also. My steer Chappie, was not the most expensive steer on the block nor the one that everybody wanted as a baby. Due to all the hard work, and working long days in the summer with Chappie, he was a champion at last. ▪

MAKING IT WORK

CARRIE EDWARDS

Edwards Show Team: The family that shows together grows together BY: CARRIE EDWARDS, MO

ou know you’re destined to spend the rest of your life with someone when, as a teenager, they let you keep your show cattle at their house. Sweet, isn’t it? Thus begins the story of Les and Carrie Edwards. Les and I were high school sweethearts that parted ways (I went to Mizzou...he went to work) but eventually ended up getting married 13 years later and to the delight of our mothers! However, blending our two families and careers was a bit tricky. Though I was from a farming family, I’d been a broadcaster for nearly 10 years with two small children (Lexi and Carter) and hadn’t had mud on my shoes for a long time. Les was a skilled iron worker, single dad (to Landon) who traded in his hard hat for a

Kinze planter and many acres of corn and soybeans. How in the world would our night and day backgrounds come together? There was only one thing to do: MAKE IT WORK. Through lots of trial and error, I like to brag that we have made it work. We now have his, mine, and ours when it comes to kiddos: Lexi Bremer (10), Landon Edwards (8), Carter Bremer (7) and Ashlan Edwards (1). Our house is like the ocean or a juice-box fueled kindergarten classroom: never turn your back for a second! There’s the popular saying of “the family that prays together, stays together.” When it comes to praying, I have that covered 110%! I pray for good weather


Carrie Edwards with her husband Les and chilren: Lexi, Landon, Carter, and Ashlan

for harvest and planting, I pray for the health of my children, I pray that our calves at LEAST win their class at a show, I pray for a clone of myself, I pray for an extra few hours in a day, and on and on. I believe the same can be said for showing livestock: the family that shows together grows together. It really is hard to explain to an “outsider” what exactly it is that we “do” everyday as no two days are the same (much like weather in Missouri). We’ve dubbed

our showing endeavors Edwards Show Team. ALL of our kids work together as a team at home, in the barn, on the road, in the field, and in the ring, no matter their last name. We always try to travel as a family and have put tens of thousands of miles on numerous trucks and trailers in the hopes of a coveted hand shake from a stock show judge. Les and I didn’t always know we wanted to get back into showing livestock after being away from it

for so long: it just happened. My niece, Bailey Dent, had shown sheep for years with her brother and sister and with some coaxing from Les and I, decided she would venture into the steer “world.” Our first, barn was so small, I don’t know how we managed to have a cool room AND a wash rack in there, let alone any cattle! You know what? We made it work. Our success with Bailey and her calf, Indy (named after Indianapo MAY/JUNE 2013 THE SHOWTIMES 161


lis, Indiana, where we met Justin Morgan half-way to pick up the calf), the first year was pretty good: we didn’t win any major shows, but did sell in the Sale of Champions at the 2010 American Royal. To us, that was the same as winning. But much like any drug, the high of being successful entered our blood stream and we wanted more: we wanted to win the Missouri State Fair. Too often in this business, it isn’t what you know but WHO that will open the right doors for you. Come on: we all know it’s true. Les was bound and determined to win the Missouri State Fair so he started cold-calling breeders: he literally asked, “What’s the best steer in your barn/sale/pasture?” When it was all said and done, the steer we finally found, Batman (from Bob May and Matt Fuss), was grand champion at the 2011 Missouri State Fair, with Bailey on the halter (and Clint Thompson, Will & Katlyn Garrett, and our three big kids brushing in the cool room every day and night). BOTH of our calves were in the Top 4 with “Batman” taking Grand Champion Steer (and Champion 4-H steer) and “Q Dog” (from Dave Guyer and Justin Morgan, with Katlyn Garrett on the halter) as Reserve Grand Champion 4-H Steer. We wanted any and everyone that

had helped us out with that victory to be in the backdrop photo and as you can see, there isn’t much room left to even take a breath! Unlike baseball or basketball season, there are no breaks in showing livestock as there is always a sale, show, clinic, expo or pasture to go to. Immediately following the 2011 Missouri State Fair victory, Lexi came to me and Les and said she was really interested in showing cattle. As excited as we were about our niece showing, you can imagine how FIRED UP we were about Lexi showing (we also realized we needed a bigger barn to make it all work!). Lexi’s first show was at the 2011 Sioux Empire Farm Show. Her very stubborn steer nudged her the entire time they were in the ring and Lexi left the ring in tears; as a parent that is hard to watch. However, her tears of frustration quickly turned to a smile when she was approached by Matt Lautner and he said to her, “Nice job, young lady” after she was awarded reserve in her breed. From that moment on, she’s suffered from stock show fever. Lexi is always the first to read through her copy of Show Times to not only see what state we’ll travel to next in hopes of a slap from the judge, but to count how many times she’s

either mentioned or pictured! Edwards Show Team made the big adventure to Denver for the National Western Stock Show with our goats and Lexi is already talking about returning next year with not only goats but cattle and perhaps even sheep. I’m looking into hotel rooms already! With experience, Lexi has blossomed into an amazing showman and my head explodes with pride when someone tells me they can’t believe she’s only in her second year of showing. With many grand champion and reserve champion titles under her blinged-out belt already this year (Ohio AGR, Sioux Falls, Kansas Beef Expo, Nebraska Big Red Show, Showin’ For a Cure, Mizzou AGR, Warren County (MO) Preview Show, and Mizzou Block & Bridle, just to name a few), Lexi is a very humble winner. More importantly, however, is the fact that she is a very humble loser. As parents, Les and I try to instill in ALL of our children that yes, winning IS wonderful, but we can’t win them all: it’s just as important to celebrate when someone in our show “family” wins (Jeremy and Andrea Clark, Trent and Evan Kempker, Shelby Lane, Tracy Goretska, Jake Campbell, Tyler McVay, Justin Morgan, Matt Lautner, and more). Les and I, of course, like to think we have the best calves in the country this year. Our first calf, J.C.

Ashlan Edwards checking out the farm.

(from Tracy Goretska, placed by Jeremy Clark and Justin Morgan), was honestly not our first pick when the fall sales started up. However, after a LOT of convincing from Jake Campbell, we put our trust in this calf’s genetics and we have not been disappointed with J.C. at all this year. Our second calf is named Ray (from Todd Caldwell, placed by Jeremy Clark, Justin Morgan and Matt Hueber). Ray is the proverbial “puppy dog” calf. He literally follows Lexi anywhere she needs him to go, including lots of backdrop pictures. I have a feeling there may be a few tears shed when he leaves our barn for good. As we prepare to throw the calves into the cool room and gear up for this year’s Missouri State Fair, we will have plenty to keep us busy: planting season is just around the corner and the empty parts of our barns will soon be full of show pigs, sheep, and goats. There truly NEVER is a dull moment on our farm…ever. Les and I came to the realization not long after our baby, Ashlan, surprisingly joined our family, that we have 21 MORE years of traveling the country to stock shows. Twenty one years. That’s a whole lot of brushing, rinsing, walking, planting, harvesting, drying, miles, laughs, tears, wins, losses, and memories. Guess what will happen? We’ll make it work. ▪

Alan Miller, with the support of his family, has incorporated his passion, knowledge and background of the Angus breed into a nationwide business.

G

BY: ALAN MILLER, IL

rowing up on a family farm, many kids like Alan Miller dreamed of coming back to the farm and raising his family there. For him, that dream has come true. Alan has come back to the farm, built a business that is a nationally known Angus breeding operation, and made a name for himself in the show heifer business.

Like many Midwest-raised farm kids, Alan Miller grew up on his family’s farm with a small herd of cattle and 900 acres of crop land. His grandfather, Adam Schlipf, began an Angus cattle herd in the late 1940s, and Alan’s father, Orlan, took over the small herd and added Angus females for his children to show. One of five siblings, Alan knew that in order to come back to the farm fulltime he would have to diversify his father’s operation. After his last year of showing as a junior, Alan sold his bred-and-owned heifer from that year and invested those profits into what became the foundation donor for PVF. In 1994, at 21 years old, Alan purchased what he calls the “building block” of his herd, Davis Proven Queen 3026, which became a turning point for


breeder spotlight Alan to be able to live out his dream of raising Angus cattle for a living. Today, Prairie View Farms markets cattle each year through an online heifer calf sale, spring production sale, and through private treaty sales. The farm is a known quantity in the Angus breed, and cattle are sold across the country for both show ring or donor cow prospect purposes. Alan linked his ability to succeed with the support he received from his parents, stating, “At 17 years old my father was allowing me to call the shots. I was the one who made the mistakes, and I was the one who was able to learn directly from the mistakes I made.” Alan continued to build his herd while he attended the University of Illinois in Urbana. He worked full time for the university while completing graduate degrees and relied on family help, especially

from his father, to care for the expanding herd during his schooling. His job after graduation was with the University of Illinois Extension working with beef producers on beef cattle production cost analysis. The job taught him much the cost and benefit analysis of different production practices in the beef industry. Theresa and Alan met in high school when their opposing schools were playing each other in basketball. Both attended the University of Illinois in Urbana. Alan received a B.S. in Animal Science and then went on to get an M.S. and Ph.D. in Ruminant Nutrition. Theresa received a B.S. in Agricultural Communications and an M.S. in Agricultural Education. She is currently employed by the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois as an academic advisor. Alan and his father Orlan currently operate PVF together in close cooperation with brother-in-law and sister Brandon and Cathy Jones. There are two full time herd managers; Clayton Miller from Indiana, and Ethan Butler from Tennessee. Alan and Theresa’s children, Amelia (10), Adam (8), and William (3) as well as Cathy and Brandon’s daughter Charlee (3) represent the fourth generation of Angus breeders in the Miller family. Alan Theresa and Alan Miller with their children Amelia, William, and Adam.

and Brandon also rely heavily on part time college students to assist on the farm during the school year. Like any expanding operation, PVF has undergone some major changes in the last 15 years, and Alan says the most dramatic is the operation’s size. In 2000, PVF marketed around 30 calves to customers, and this year PVF will have more than 200 calves to market, with 80 percent of those calves grown as the product of reproductive enhancements such as embryo transplant (ET) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Alan and his family depend primarily on the marketing of heifer calves for their income. Expanding the number of heifer calves born each year through ET, IVF and the use of sexed semen has been a beneficial endeavor for the operation. These practices allow them to have more elite females to offer and give them the ability to quickly

spread their leading genetics to many herds all over the country. Several years ago, PVF began utilizing cooperative herds to raise the resulting progeny of ET and IVF work, because their operation is located in the heart of farming country, and Alan says it’s almost impossible to expand land-wise. “The coop herds have been a huge benefit in helping us expand our herd. Plus we are able to work with some outstanding families that are helping us to spread our genetics through areas we may not have been able to reach before,” said Alan. Alan’s biggest challenges include finding new ways to market show females and meet the needs and goals of customers. “Everyone likes to buy cattle differently, and it is our goal to have a market for everyone, We have found that some customers prefer private treaty while others are more comfortable with a traditional auction format. Adding an online sale seems to have helped reach a new customer segment as well,” he remarked. The genetics raised at PVF and marketed at shows around the country have expanded the reach of customer sales to a much broader audience. “We have been very fortunate to sell cattle all over the United States, and I personally credit internet marketing for that, as it has opened new doors for selling cattle sight unseen by allowing us to upload pictures and videos for customers who cannot make it to the farm.” Increasing their bull market is another challenge for PVF. They have exhibited a pen of bulls at the National Western Stock Show for the last three years as a way to generate new bull buyers. Along with this, Alan markets bulls with partners such as McCabe Genetics in Kansas where the bull market is more solid than in central Illinois. The one thing that Alan is most proud of is the fact that he was able to take a 4-H project and turn it into a business that he can support his family and enjoy the lifestyle it provides them with. Alan’s proudest breeding accomplishments were

raising such influential AI herd sires as New Horizon, Raptor, Payday, Windfall, and Insight. These have sired numerous champion females at national shows. In addition, raising the Reserve Champion Female at the 2013 National Western Stock Show, WB PVF Lucy 1052, was an accomplishment that he was particularly proud of. As a junior he was thankful for the opportunity to serve on the National Junior Angus Board of Directors. Alan says that being on the board allowed him to make contacts with other breeders that have been the keys to his success as a breeder himself. In fact the foundation 3026 donor was purchased from a fellow NJAA board member. In addition, he made lifelong friendships with other junior members who served on the board with him. By building these friendships, Alan not only grew his knowledge of the industry, but made great connections that have helped him build his business and reputation in the Angus breed. Alan and Theresa are very involved in the agriculture industry through trade organizations. Alan served as the Sale Chairman for the Illinois Angus Association for 14 years, and Theresa served as Illinois Junior Angus Association advisor for 4 years. However, they have interests outside of the farm. They are active members of the Apostolic Christian Church in Gridley where Alan teaches

Alan and Theresa attribute their successful business to two main things: the great people they are allowed to work with and their ability to help their customers to meet their needs. Both Alan and Theresa find satisfaction in helping young producers build their own herds and watch them grow. “Being able to work this closely with our customers has made many of them feel like a part of our own family,” Alan said. “As a result, we enjoy the opportunity to be with them as they show cattle, and assist with young Angus producers as they become successful focused individuals.” Alan says he remembers his first time in 4-H when he sat on his show box at the fair, not knowing anyone or much of anything. It is because of this memory that he encourages new customers who are entering the Angus business to help them feel more comfortable as they are starting out. He said his path was not always successful but through trial and error he found his way. “Starting from ground zero has given me the perspective to appreciate what I have. I am thankful for the opportunities and experiences I gained through participating in Angus programs, because without those things I wouldn’t be where I am today,” said Alan.

CATTLE VISIONS

A company that specializes in semen sales, A.I. schools, A.I. certificates, A.I. supplies, synchronization breeding projects, and CIDRs. BY LANCE ELLSWORTH, WI

n the fall of 2002, Cattle Visions was founded by Lance Ellsworth of Wisconsin and Carl Newbrough of Missouri. While 188 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2013

its name and genetic influence can be seen all throughout the cattle industry, the company has found home in Clark, Missouri, just a few miles north of Columbia. Cattle Visions specializes in semen sales, A.I. schools, A.I. certificates, A.I. supplies, synchronization breeding projects, and CIDRs. It was a pioneer in internet semen sales and continues to be a mainstay in that category. “We were honored to have been voted ‘Best of the Barns’ Semen Sales Company in 2012.” Cattle Visions encourages customers to post their successes on its Facebook page. Similar to any great livestock company’s background, both Lance and Carl had a passion for contributing to the growth and advancement of the industry. For Cattle Visions, that was cattle genetics. When Carl’s daughter’s interest sparked at showing competitively in 4-H, he started A.I.ing in order to raise better cattle. He eventual-

ly became employed for Genetic Horizons and has put on many successful A.I. schools. Carl is especially knowledgeable in synchronization protocol and enjoys performing A.I. projects. Lance grew up showing cattle in 4-H and FFA, always admiring genetic improvement. He received a BS in Animal Science and Ag Journalism from UW-Madison where he especially enjoyed being a member of the livestock judging team. Lance enjoys raising cattle and is happy to own two NWSS Champion Simmental Females, Anticipation and Sweetness. Lance’s children are just starting out their show careers. Lance and Carl worked together for a few years when Semex purchased Genetic Horizons. At the time, Lance was the Global Manager of the Semex Beef Program. When they realized they had a lot in common, they put their expertise together to start


Cattle Visions. After over ten years in business, Cattle Visions has over 200 sales representatives nationwide. Patty Helmka is the Cattle Visions office manager, and both Carl and Lance agree that without her dedicated efforts, they would not be where they are today. Both Lance and Carl enjoy the friendships they have developed with people throughout the country as a result of their business.

BW: 83; Calved May 22, 2012 Sire: Ruby’s Wide Open Dam: 40 Guns (Meyer 734 - Maine) x Collins Emulous 297

• Solo is sired by Wide Open. Wide Open is making powerful half bloods and he is really getting it done. This great May calf has the kind of rib shape, hip, bone and hair we want to make the next generation. He is really unique - POWER, SOUNDNESS, BALANCE, QUALITY and PEDIGREE out of a GREAT COW! • The dam of Solo is perhaps the most consistent producer of herdbull caliber cattle at Duello’s. She is a beautiful baldy Meyer 734 Granddaughter who also is the mother of the featured Irish Whiskey son of the 2011 Western Elite, that we lost prior to the sale in an untimely death. Owned with Anderson Cattle Co.

Pitch

• We are excited about the prospects of this young

sire. His phenotype and pedigree are impeccable. He will be used heavily to generate the next generation of foundation females. Bulls like this one, with this much power and maternal ability, are hard to find. • The dam of Fever Pitch is a Meyer 734 daughter out of Collins Travelina 6001. Travelina 6001, a daughter of Grizz, was an Angus heifer that many remember well. She commanded a $32,000 hammer price, for one half interest, in an Exposure sale. She is owned in partnership with Jason Scheetz.

Wide Open

• DCC has calved the first daughters and they are incredible! High Sellers are important to everyones immediate cash flow but the real value of Wide Open is the long term. He is the most consistent sire (of both males and females) ever used at Duello Cattle Co. • THEY ARE THE KEEPIN KIND! The first crop of Wide Open Sons averaged over $5,700 per head at DCC and to date every female born has been good enough to make the replacement pen. • His fresh genetics, power and athleticism has made him a favorite among purebred breeders and club calf producers alike.
