MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 5


Show Day Tip: Start your day off with a clean animal and give yourself plenty of time on show day. Daily Hair Care Tip: Brush the hair properly, in the right direction first. This will help when you are ready to blow. Daily Barn Routine: Chores usually take about three hours. We get up at five. Mom rinses the heifers while we brush with the Smart Comb and massage brushes. Sometimes we brush them dry and sometimes we blow them dry. It varies on time of year. We try to check the heifers every hour.

Favorite Hair Care Product: Revive

They do so much for the juniors and people in the breed. Favorite Stock Show: Louisville, no doubt. I love walking down that ramp to see all those green shavings. Show Day Ritual or Routine: Well, I won’t cut my hair before I show. I did that once and we didn’t get along so well. And I have to wear the same jeans and use a certain show stick. My show stick has it’s own specific spot in the trailer so I don’t forget it. All-Time Favorite Calf: A Hereford heifer I had named Cinderella. She was a bred and owned that was reserve in Louisville and she would drag me around the show ring trying to eat all the plants. Proudest Accomplishment: I have recently earned my State FFA Degree. So that is something I am proud of. I am also proud to have the opportunities to show with and against my sister in the champion drive at a lot of shows, especially Louisville, Denver and the Illinois State Fair.

As Described by Kane Aegerter ... Favorite Barn Tool: The Smart Sensation and Roto Brush Favorite Hair Care Product: Sullivan’s Revive Favorite Show Day Aid: Sullivan’s Appetite Express Best Part Of My Win: Getting to chat with the judges after the show.

Show Day Ritual or Routine: I personally don’t have one, but my mom is very specific about what comb she uses on show day. She has her lucky comb that she uses on each of my heifers right before I enter the show ring. Before I go in the ring, I take a moment to pray and thank God for the opportunity, and to remind me if I win or lose to be happy. All-Time Favorite Calf: Bella for sure. She was interesting to people so it gave me the opportunity to visit and meet a lot of new people. Proudest Accomplishment: I recently received a “Gold” in the Creed speaking competition at the State FFA Contest. A gold honor is placing in the top 8. It was a great experience. Show Day Tip: Make sure to thank or hug everyone that has helped you leading up to that day. And don’t forget to congratulate the winner. It will make you feel good. Daily Hair Care Tip: Hair won’t grow or improve if you don’t work on it. And by work I mean brush to train and grow hair. Future Goals: I’d love to win Louisville. That is a big goal of mine. Louisville is a challenge and huge win for everyone. I’d be honored if I could win it one year. I would like to thank my parents for always being there for me with everything I do. Thank you Justin Garwood for the opportunity. And I also need to give a huge thank you for everyone that has helped me ...

Favorite Hair Care Product: Kleen Sheen

As Described by Becca Moore ... Favorite Show Day Product/Equipment: Air Express III Favorite Hair Care Product: Sullivan’s Kleen Sheen & Final Bloom Favorite Hobby: Reading and spending time with my family and friends. Favorite Breed: I love the Herefords that I have shown, but I probably enjoy Maine and MaineTainers most. Favorite College/University: Oklahoma State University Favorite Stock Show: Maine Junior Nationals. I like the long week we get to spend with everyone. All-Time Favorite Animal: My Hereford, NCD BK Champion Zenie Best Part Of My Win: Probably to win the Oklahoma Youth Expo as a group. Victoria Chapman had Supreme Champion Purebred Heifer with her Hereford, so to win both shows with the entire Buck crew was a lot of fun. We are all part of one big team. Daily Barn Routine: Feed, rinse, brush and put them in the cooler. Or do what ever Ethan or Dad tells us to do. LOL Proudest Accomplishment: Winning the 2014 OYE Supreme Influence Heifer Daily Hair Care Tip: Throughout the year we keep the skin and hair hydrated by using Sullivan’s Rag Oil or Revive. In the summer months, we use Revive. As it gets colder out we use Rag Oil. Future Goals: I am going to Oklahoma State University this fall and majoring in accounting. I plan to come back home and work for the family business (steel mill).

Multiple champions in major shows for many years, yet Becca’s best attribute is being graceful in winning or losing.

Thank you to my family and the Buck crew and family for all that you have done. Thank you to all those that have helped get cattle ready for shows and those who help at shows. Showman ...

Supreme Champion Influence Heifer & Grand Champion MaineTainer, 2014 Oklahoma Youth Expo


As Described by Carter Ward ...

Favorite Show Day Product/Equipment: Air Express III Favorite Hair Care Product: Sullivan’s Kleen Sheen Favorite Hobby: I show all types of livestock and basketball Favorite Breed: I prefer Angus, but I have shown pretty much everything ... MaineTainer, ShorthornPlus, and Chi. Favorite Stock Show: That is a hard one for me. I guess it’s probably Denver. I like getting to visit with friends for the week. All-Time Favorite Animal: Uno, my goat that I won the Missouri State Fair this past year with. We called him Uno because he was Lot 1 in the Pfeiffer Farms Sale. Best Part Of My Win: Well Missie was my pick at Prairie View Farms. Dad, Mom and Cameron didn’t think she would turn out as good, so winning Louisville was a pretty big deal to me. I always knew she would be cool. Who picks out your show heifers: Cameron, my parents and I do. We all share our opinions and go from there. Proudest Accomplishment: Between Cameron and I, we have won five National shows ... Reserve Grand Angus Heifer, 2014 Denver; Grand Angus Heifer, 2013 NAILE Junior Show; Reserve Grand Angus Heifer, 2013 Denver Open Show; Grand Champion Bred & Owned Angus Heifer, 2012 Junior Nationals; and Reserve Champion Overall Female at a past Charolais Junior Nationals. This is something I am very proud of. Daily Hair Care Tip: I think it is important to keep your heifers hair as hydrated as possible. And do a lot of brushing to help manage the hair. Daily Barn Routine: First we get the heifers in the barn, feed then rinse. Then we put the heifers under the fans and brush. In the summer we roto brush a lot. From their legs to the entire body, helping train the hair. We go back around noon to rinse and brush again. This time we will use Kleen Sheen while brushing. At the night feeding, we rinse and brush one more time before we turn them out. Future Goals: I am attending Black Hawk this fall for livestock judging. I hope to do well there so I can continue on at a four year college. After that, I would like to run my own Angus ranch. I would like to thank my parents for their help and support and the show day crew ... Preston Graves, Brandon Jones, Cameron, Justin Vehige, Stanlee Grobosky and Alan Miller. I also want to thank John Sullivan for all that he does to support the youth in this industry and providing us with great products.

Favorite Barn Tool: Smart Sensation

Knowledge equals effort, this is why Carter is successful at the highest level. Future great stockman in this industry.

How do the VITA HAIR™ Nourishing Vitamins work? Biotin vitamin is the first vitamin thought of when considering HAIR GROWTH. The major benefit of Biotin is its ability to strengthen both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, where the hair is produced, which prevents hair breakage and dryness. This is a scientifically proven crucial step in the natural hair growing process. One of the chief things that slows hair growth is damaged hair. Biotin enriched hair has increased elasticity of the cortex which prevents breakage. This enables healthy, FASTER HAIR GROWTH. Biotin also thickens the actual hair cuticle providing a fuller appearance. Pro-Vitamin B-5 is considered the king of all HAIR CARE vitamins. Pro-Vitamin B-5 stimulates healthy scalp circulation which leads to improved hair health. It coats the hair and seals its surface, lubricating the hair shaft making the hair shine. It possesses superior long term moisturizing properties because of its unique ability to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation to the skin and supports capillary growth. The skin needs to have proper circulation in order to keep the hair follicles alive and thriving. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves leading to increased nutrient absorption into the hair follicles, which speeds hair growth.

Owners: Chris, Kristi, Cagney, Chesney & Kenidey Effling Location: Highmore, South Dakota Cow Herd: CK Cattle predominantly has Simmental cattle, operated with Lanny, Jayne and Dusty Wager. Since the girls Cagney, Chesney and Kenidey have started to show they have been incorporating their show heifers, Hereford and Charolais, into their program as well. Years in the industry: Chris and Kristi both grew up in the cattle industry, but ten years ago they decided to get aggressive with the production and selling avenue. Marketing Opportunities: CK Cattle & Wager Cattle sell approximately 40 head in September in our annual Private Treaty Sale. We also offer cattle in the Ree Heights Fall Gathering Online Sale in November, Hartman’s Customer Appreciation Sale in December, and a few bulls at the Black Hills Stock Show in January as well as private treaty.

CK Cattle

As Described by the Effling Family ... How did you get started in the show cattle industry: We have both been involved in the livestock industry at some level since we were young. A few years after we were married Kristi and I stumbled onto an opportunity to purchase a place that was not only a great facility, but a great location. It really has been our dream place. We live in cattle country of South Dakota and our neighbors help with no hesitations which are two keys to our success. Everyone in this area works together. How do you decide what to sell and what to show? Everything here is for sale, so we end up buying a majority of the girl’s show heifers. We buy from good cow families so we can throw them back into our program. Who makes the breeding decisions? That turns into a fight around here and Kristi is the one that usually calls “uncle”!!! Actually the girls are involved in every decision with their show heifers. All-time favorite donor? Not to say we have a favorite, but we have to give credit where credit is due with one of our Simmental donors named Melody. The dam of Dream Catcher and Driver, Lanny purchased Melody for $4,000 and in the past 10 years, she has created over a million in revenue. At twelve years old, she still looks like a youthful female ... sound, great uddered and extremely low maintenance. What sires are you using? Well, we have a variety of bulls, because we breed for multiple purposes. We used Broker, Upgrade, Earthquake, Lightning (a Broker son) and Eclipse for our Simmental and ET program. We have also used Monopoly, I-80, Dry County and Ready to Rumble. What is your favorite Champion? That is a tough one, but one that we will never forget is Sweet Red Wine, Chesney’s Hereford. We bought her form Rausch Herefords for $4,000 thinking she would be a great cow with her low birth weight EPD. Well, we

got lucky because she ended up being a great show heifer, as well as a great donor cow. In her short two years of production, Sweet Red Wine has become one of our top donors, generating over $400,000 in progeny. One of her daughters was the Reserve Grand Champion Polled Hereford Heifer at the 2013 Junior National Hereford Expo, Supreme Champion Heifer at the Illinois State Fair and Reserve Grand at this years Denver for Trent Ray. Nate Kolterman recently sold another daughter in the 2014 National Hereford Sale for $110,000. Proudest accomplishment to date? This is hard for us to pin point exactly. It doesn’t take much to make us happy. We are proud of our local successes at the South Dakota State Fair and the Black Hills Stock Show as much as our success at National shows like Louisville, Denver and Fort Worth. But the most gratifying thing to Chris and I is the continued support. We, as a family, work extremely hard in this business, so to see the true friends we have made and the support they give us is humbling. The girls favorite barn tools? Well there is no cooler here, so a lot of rinsing, brushing and blowing is done. Cagney, Chesney and Kenidey rinse every day and brush with the Rice Root Brush or scrub brush. Then they work the hair with Sullivan’s Air Express III. Sullivan’s Kleen Sheen is used daily as well. What are your future goals? The girls set our goals really high. We just try to help them succeed and continue to try to make the cattle better with each step. Anyone you want to thank? We could put a list of names down, but it would be a pretty big list!!! We do want to thank Kristi's family.

Raising livestock at the highest level takes great knowledge, perseverance, work ethic and humbleness. Mold that all together and you get the Effling Family.

Revive LITE

Want something lighter for your hair?

TM

NEW! PRODUCTS

Revive LITE™ features ALL of the great conditioning properties of our ever popular “original” Revive, just in a lighter, more refined approach. This formula doesn’t weigh the hair down. Great for any time of year, but especially valuable during warmer months when hair coats become thinner. You will love how light if feels in the hair with a rich, unbeatable deep shine. The extra light cosmetic grade oils contained in Revive LITE do not glob or allow the hair to stick together. This actually creates added lift to the hair with more hair separation. When applied, this new formula lightly coats and easily penetrates the hair and absorbs into the skin without clogging the pores. Why does this matter? Most products can only coat the outer surface of the hair to add temporary shine. Revive LITE, however, with its lighter molecular structure, can actually penetrate deep into the cortex of the hair strand to infuse essential nutrients and lipids for the utmost moisturizing and hydrating properties. Another benefit, it has tremendous staying power. Since most other hair treatments just coat the outside of hair, they rinse off easily while washing. But not Revive LITE. It has penetrated inside the hair, less likely to rinse away. By absorbing easily into the skin for outstanding nourishment, Revive LITE does not sit heavy on the skin heating up your animal. Revive LITE is also fortified with Sullivan’s advanced VITA HAIR Nourishing Vitamin Package to infuse the hair with proven hair vitamins for natural moisturizing to create soft, manageable and stronger hair coats. A new science breakthrough for fresh, healthy, hydrated skin and hair.

Available June 15th. Sullivan’s

Fresh & Feminine

TM

“The secret to eye appealing show cattle!”

Feminine shape and freshness throughout the front end of your show animal spells ultimate success or failure in the show ring today. Fresh & Feminine™ is not just another supplement. Tried and true for many years, Fresh & Feminine™ has been the secret, fed at Sullivan Farms for over ten years. It has been an integral part of their feeding regiment and credited with producing outstanding freshness and ultimate show ring success of their cattle at major shows year-in and year-out. This is how this feed supplement works ... the superior science of Fresh & Feminine features a combination of strategic vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and a high concentration of by-pass protein sources. This chemistry boosts metabolic fat burning in the body that targets specific areas of the body to reduce fat content, most notably in the neck and brisket area. As a result, the heifer has a more feminine, attractive physique and even moves better. This helps to offset the results seen from aggressive, high energy show cattle diets. All natural and fertility safe for open heifers, bred heifers, steers and bulls. Simply top dress 6 oz. per head per day of this pelleted supplement on your current ration until desired freshness has been achieved.

Available June 1st.

“The simple science to freshen up a front end while maintaining the body capacity desired. We have had tremendous success with Fresh & Feminine™ for over 10 years. You will noticeably see the results.” - John Sullivan

JUNIOR NATIONALS

THE ALIENS MADE ME DO IT (JUST ASK JOEL).

S

ome of my best friends were met in random places. I challenge each and every one of you to get to know at least one random person this summer at Jr. Nationals. Speaking of random... I was recently picking up Joel Judge, who would be judging the heifers at our Blackout Jackpot, from the airport. Many times people have preconceived opinions of someone before truly getting to know them. Good, bad, or otherwise. After an entertaining afternoon that started spilling my cider all over the table, and Joel turning my words around, it was in those awkward moments that a new friendship started. It was fun getting to know more about his family, where they live, and the challenges of raising cattle in different parts of the country. If it were not for having that afternoon at our show, we may not have ever gotten to know each other and become friends.

One of the greatest opportunities at Jr. Nationals is being able to meet people from all over the country with the same interests as you that you normally would not get to know. As a shy seventeen year old, I took that opportunity and stepped out of my shell, ran for the Jr. Maine-Anjou Board, and made lifetime friends. I met my best friend Anna Loftin, who lives a world away from me, well Louisiana, far enough, because we were put together working in a show ring in Ft, Worth. Serving as the Jr. Maine-Anjou President allowed me meet even more people in the industry that I would have never met. SO, this year at Jr. Nationals, take my challenge and see what random person that you could really get to know.

A SAD DAY IN THE CATTLE INDUSTRY Three men from longtime South Dakota ranching families and a former South Dakota State football star died in a plane crash that was discovered the morning of April 28th. Nick Reimann of Ree Heights, Logan Rau of Java and Brent Beitelspacher of Bowdle were returning from a Texas cattle sale in a plane piloted by DJ Fischer of Gettysburg when the crash occurred. Reimann, 33, Rau,

25, and Beitelspacher, 37, come from prominent ranching families in north-central South Dakota. Reimann, Rau and Beitelspacher were respected young cattlemen, John Sullivan said, and Reimann produced some of the nation's finest show steers each year. "I hate to see such young men taken so early," Sullivan said. "This is a pretty tough day for a lot of people in the stock show industry." Below we remember the four crash victims.

LOGAN RAU

BRENT BEITELSPACHER

NICK REIMANN

DJ FISCHER

Logan Harvey Rau, son of Shonda (Huber) and Todd Rau, was born in Eureka on Sept. 27, 1988 As the fifth generation Rau working the land, Logan was a farmer and rancher through and through. He was a great cattleman that we will truly miss. Logan will be remembered best by his unforgettable smile and his ability to ‘tell it how it was’ one minute and make you laugh the next. He was a member of Zion American Lutheran Church. Logan is survived by his loving wife, Natalie.

Brent Jay Beitelspacher, son of Carla (Kilber) and Leroy Beitelspacher, was born in Bowdle on April 28, 1976. He was brought up on the Beitelspacher farm 15 miles southwest of Bowdle in Walworth County. In 1999, Brent, along with Mark Beitelspacher, purchased Potter County Livestock from Kenneth Koops, changed the name to Gettysburg Livestock, and re-opened it on May 1, 1999. Brent is survived by Nicole, his wife of 12 years; his son, Cade, and daughter, Alana.

Nick was born October 12, 1980 to Kent and Nora (Webster) Reimann. He grew up on the family ranch south of Ree Heights. Nick had an intense passion for all he did including farming and ranching, but his real love was the show cattle industry. Nick traveled the country attending livestock shows and sales. Nick’s smile was contagious and his laugh infectious. Nick was loved by many and respected by all. Nick is survived by his wife, Kyrstin, son Croix and daughter Cannon.

Donald “DJ” Fischer, 30, was a four-year letter winner at defensive tackle for the South Dakota State football team from 200205, listed at 6-foot-3, 278 pounds. As a junior, he made 51 tackles and was named honorable mention all-Great West Football Conference. DJ was highly regarded in the community of Gettysburg where he was very active. He was a light-hearted, sincere man who never let the small things get to him. DJ is survived by his wife Megan of Gettysburg.

2014 NEBRASKA STATE FAIR LAUNCHES TWO NEW CATTLE SHOWS The Nebraska State Fair will launch two new Open cattle shows in 2014. The first is an Open Junior Breeding Heifer Show, which will be held Wednesday, August 27 at 4:00 pm in the Five Points Bank Arena.

2014 NAILE UPDATE AND CHANGES Changes in Beef Cattle Show Schedule, and Broadbent Arena Goes Green at 2014 North American International Livestock Exposition May 1, 2014... Louisville, KY… The 2014 North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) Beef Cattle Division show schedule was released today. Division Dates are Saturday, Nov. 15 through Friday, Nov. 21. This year Shorthorn and Hereford breeds will show on the first day of the open show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Freedom Hall. The order of shows for other participating breeds has also changed. Because of this rotation in the show lineup, officials are encouraging exhibitors to check the staggered arrival and release schedule. They should not assume that their schedule will be the same as in the past. The show schedule is available on the NAILE website at livestockexpo.org. Broadbent Arena Changes Plans are now in place to transform the entire floor of KEC’s Broadbent Arena into a show ring. In the past, the arena has been used to both stall cattle and conduct shows. This year Broadbent will become a twin to the legendary Freedom Hall. The two arena footprints are identical in shape and size. The Broadbent floor will be covered with the NAILE’s hallmark green shavings. There will be a split show ring and an expansive announcer’s stand. In addition, Broadbent shows will be video streamed, as are those in Freedom Hall and the South Wing Sheep Division. Livestock enthusiasts from around the world can watch shows from all three venues as they happen.

This arena repurpose will allow Junior Shows to take place throughout the day on Saturday, November 15. Jack Ragsdale, NAILE Executive Committee Chairman said, “Many of our junior exhibitors will show in Broadbent Arena. We recognize the prestige of showing on the green shavings, in the huge, split show ring, in front of the video cameras. We’re doing everything we can to give them a genuine North American International experience. And, the other breeds who have always shown in Broadbent will also receive this benefit.” Stalling Assignments These schedule and show ring realignments will result in a shorter stay for many breeds. Changes in the arrival and release schedule make it possible for all show cattle to be stalled in the Kentucky Expo Center’s West Wing, Pavilion and West Hall. Exhibitors will receive stall assignments when they check in at the Beef Cattle Division superintendent’s office. NAILE entry information and show details will be available by July 1. Entry deadline for Beef Division shows is October 1. Exhibitors may submit entries by mail at any time and on the website beginning September 1. The 41st Annual NAILE is produced by the Commonwealth of Kentucky at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky under the direction of the Kentucky State Fair Board. During the Expo’s run November 4 through 21, 2014 the facility’s entire 1,200,000 square feet of climate-controlled exhibit space is used. More than 200,000 visitors and exhibitors attend the event annually. MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 37

Unbelievable Daughters > at Bush, SD

Unbelievable is an incredibly designed calving ease prospect that owns unique neck extension, unquestioned structural soundness, extra special belly depth, and super muscle shape for an Angus bull. Unbelievable is sired by the wildly popular Bismarck bull, yet offers extra depth and hair, no doubt due to his maternally stacked pedigree which consists of a double shot of legendary Flashback laced with VRD and TC Dividend. We envision Unbelievable siring extra-ordinary low birth-weight progeny utilizable in both purebred and hybrid cow herds. We can’t wait for Unbelievable progeny!

A LOOK AHEAD TO THIS YEAR'S ANGUS JUNIOR NATIONALS! The National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) is the highlight of the summer for many Angus families, and this year the big event takes place July 6-12 in Indianapolis, Ind. Sponsored by the Indiana Junior Angus Association, the 2014 NJAS is themed “Angus in the Heartland – You gotta love it!” › Indianapolis, Indiana › July 6-12, 2014

ANGUS IN THE HEARTLAND YOU GOTTA LOVE IT! 3 Interesting Facts about the Angus Breed

Fact 1:

The Junior Activities Department of the American Angus Association was started in 1956.

Fact 2:

There are nearly 6,000 active junior members from all parts of the United States and Canada.

Fact 3:

While cattle shows are the main attraction, the week also includes a showmanship competition, a variety of life-skills contests and multiple activities for members of the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA). Indiana has hosted the show as recently as 2006, and the state association looks forward to making this event a funfilled and educational week for junior Angus enthusiasts and their families. All activities will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The Angus breed enjoys an enviable position in the cattle business. Industry wide estimates peg the nation’s cow herd as approximately 70% Angusbased. That’s tremendous market share — and tremendous opportunity for every Angus farm or ranch: large or small, seedstock or commercial.

PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, MARYLAND, VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGIANA HOST THE JR. NATIONAL HEREFORD EXPO Known as the Efficiency Experts, is it any surprise that the Hereford breed originated as a product of necessity? Efficient, adaptable and hardy, these cattle have always had a face to remember. With over 3,500 adult members and close to 2,500 junior members the American Hereford Association (AHA) and National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) are two of the largest, strongest and most active cattle programs in the country. During the last fiscal year, increasing demand continued to be the theme in the Hereford business. Despite drought and escalating costs in the beef industry, Hereford breed demand continues to grow, as production sale averages increased $500 and reports of privatetreaty sales continue to out-pace the previous year’s reports. A total of 171 Hereford production sales were reported by the AHA field representatives this fiscal year. Bull sales averaged $4,763, up nearly $92, and females, $4,202, up almost $873 per head. During the last fiscal year the AHA registered 67,930 Herefords along with 35,957 transfers and a total of 100,494 cows on inventory. This year the NJHA and the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) are excited to be heading east as six states have come together to host “A Sweet Family Tradition” in Harrisburg, Pa.,

THE MAINE REASON

THIS SUMMER IN LOUISVILLE WITH THE CHI AND SHORTHORNS

67

The Maine-Anjou breed originated in the northwestern part of France in the beginning of the 19th century. The breed was first known as the Durham-Mancelle breed but later changed to Maine-Anjou taking the name from the Maine and Anjou river valleys. The first MaineAnjou 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. In 1976 the name was changed to the American Maine-Anjou Association. The AMAA headquarters has been located in Platte City, Missouri since 2001. The breed excels in performance, disposition and carcass traits. This year the American Junior MaineAnjou Association is hosting their junior national show in Louisville, Kentucky June 21-27 in conjunction with the Chianina and Shorthorn associations. Aside from the Bull, steer and heifer shows, the junior show will also provide the opportunity for kids to participate in many different types of contests and activities during this week long event. The contests this year include showmanship, cook-off, state baskets, poster, photography, speech, salesmanship, team fitting and livestock judging. We strongly encourage all American Junior MaineAnjou Association members to attend the junior national this year. We are very excited to be joined by two other breed associations and feel that this provides a unique opportunity for the exhibitors.

RIDE FOR THE BRAND 2 Interesting Facts about the Maine-Anjou Breed

Fact 1:

Maine-Anjou cattle were originally called Durham-Mancelle.

Fact 2:

Maine-Anjou are large framed with traditional red with white markings on the head, belly, rear legs and tail. Today, however, they are more solid in color patterns with black, red, and black and white.

The Shorthorn breed originated in Northeastern England. The first real development of the breed occurred in the valley of the Tees River about 1600. Shorthorns were first imported to the United States in 1783; later, in 1822, the first herd book record was established by Shorthorn breeders called the Coates Herd Book. In 1846 The American Shorthorn Herd Book was the first to be published in this country for any breed, with the formation of the American Shorthorn Association following 26 years later in 1872. Breeders from nine states formulated the organization, wishing to provide a service for its members and a way to record ancestry through the registration of Shorthorns. The ASA is one of the oldest American breed organizations in existence today. The ASA records approximately 15,000 animals each year. More than 20,000 head are maintained in the association’s whole herd registry. The current membership is in excess of 2,500 adult members, with more than 4,000 juniors on the membership roll.

DEVON STEWART

WE ASKED DEVON TO FILL IN THE BLANKS. BY DEVON STEWART,DIRECTOR OF YOUTH ACTIVITIES, AMERICAN MAINE-ANJOU ASSOCIATION, PLATTE CITY, MO

1. I would never... I would never walk a tightrope, not even for a few feet. I get sweaty palms just thinking about it.

6. My biggest fear is... My biggest fear… spiders! If you want to scare any of the Stewart family, spiders are key.

2. I wish I were better at... Playing some sort of instrument. My band teacher more or less kicked me out because I was so bad.

7. I never go to a show without... I never go to a show without comfortable shoes. I tried to tackle my first show as a junior director in my “cute boots”… let’s just say I learned quickly.

3. My favorite aspect of my job is... Being able to stay involved with the juniors and junior events. Attending junior shows were a huge part of my childhood. I know how big of an impact showing cattle had on me and I love to watch the impact they have on the other youth of our industry. 4. My favorite hobby is... My favorite hobby is attending cattle shows. Whether it is for work or on my own time, I really enjoy seeing and talking to all of the great people of our industry. 5. I always make sure I... I always make sure I look before backing up... now. Ask John or anyone else at our office. Not looking before backing up cost me a pretty penny earlier this year.

8. My perfect day is... My perfect day is any day spent with my family. 9. My favorite sports team is... The Kansas State Wildcats. I am a proud alum! 10. I would love to travel to... I would love to travel anywhere out of the United States. I have not had the pleasure of leaving the country, and would love the opportunity to do so. It is definitely on my bucket list! 11. If I could judge one show it'd be... I think the opportunity to judge any national show would be an amazing experience but if I had to choose just one, I would choose to judge on the green chips in Louisville. Don’t worry

showman, I will not be judging any shows anytime in the near future! 12. The easiest way to make me angry is... The easiest way to make me angry is to talk bad about my family and friends. 13. If I wasn't the Director of Jr. Activities for the AMAA, I'd be... If I wasn’t the Director of Junior Activities for the American MaineAnjou Association I honestly could not tell you where I would be. Now that I am a part of this great association, I can’t imagine being anywhere else. 14. My greatest accomplishment is... Thus far, my biggest accomplishment is graduating college. Until April of my senior year of high school, I had plans of attending cosmetology school and was not interested in college at all. I am so glad I changed my mind! 15. If I could meet one person it'd be... Garth Brooks! For anyone who knows me, this will come as no shock. MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 79

to see this was an underserved market. No dealer really focused on livestock show trailers whether it be beef, swine, lamb or goat exhibitors needs. Most dealers focus is selling horse trailers and utility type trailers. We decided from the very beginning we needed to sell the best quality, most customizable trailer on the market, and be able to do this at a fair price. Luckily for us, we were introduced to Cimarron Trailers and since our beginning we have worked side by side with their team to help develop show trailers that meet and exceed the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. We think what makes our team a success is both sides actually have people involved in the livestock business. To me that gives us an advantage over our competition because we not only use the trailers but have a better understanding of how the little things in the trailers make them function for each individual user. Since our inception in 2010 the trailers have been an ever developing product. One of the best things I feel has happened is we have built trailers that serve a family that shows multiple species. We have designed and built several trailers that can be used to show cattle one weekend with one of the nicest custom show cattle MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 83

trailer than to be ready to go show pigs the next weekend with the individual pens in place. This option has let many of the show families have one trailer to meet their needs instead of owning two separate trailers. Because of the quality of the Cimarron trailers it has also given our customers the confidence that they cannot only use their trailer on the weekend to go show but can also use it during the week to move cows from pasture to pasture and it withstand the abuse that environment can provide. Besides doing some really creative things with stock trailer design I believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the small things our customers appreciate the most. On cattle trailers many customers tell us that they wish someone had taken the time when they bought their first trailer to tell them to set the rear gate far enough forward so the chutes would fit in the back compartment. On the pen system trailers many customers have complained because there previous trailer pen gates were to short or not set high enough off the floor so they would clear the woodchips. These things are all small but to the end user they are a big thing in making the trailer function and preform the way they expect it to. The challenge every day in my mind is seeing what new and innovative idea we can come up with next and hopefully turn it into something the livestock exhibitor can benefit from. We have never claimed to 84 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

be the largest trailer dealer in business or claimed to have the fanciest dealership in the best location. The few things we hope we do right is build a good useable product for our customers and above all treat customers honest and fair in the process. We always welcome customers to come by and look at what we offer or call us about their trailer questions. I am really honored every time we get to make a customer happy and always look forward to seeing them when The Showtimes comes around. â&#x2013;Ş


Adjustable Pen Systems - More and more people are upgrading to the adjustable pen systems which allows you to have pens on 50/50 split or change to a 60/40. Really been a nice feature for people hauling breeding size gilts.

IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES

FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE THE BIGGEST REWARD BY DAVE GUYER, IL

ave you ever thought about tomorrow? If not, I bet you have lately. You know we all, including myself, get caught up in a win, a banner, or the money. NONE of that is relevant to tomorrow. If you win every show, gather all the banners, and collect the big check, it means 88 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

nothing in the big picture. Friends and family are the biggest reward we receive in this business. I truly consider many in this industry family and friends; and the friends feel like family. I truly love them. This industry we live in has been a great place to raise a family. I will be the first to say I get caught up in the everyday life of go, go, go. I will also be the first to say that the ones that I deal with on a daily basis, that are the closest to me, I am the hardest on. I hold, for example, my wife to a higher standard than others; and that isn’t fair to her. My kids the same. Why are we so hard on the ones we love the most? You will have your own answer to that question, but at some point we MUST stand back and analize ourselves. We must look to see how people analyze us. “If tomorrow never comes, people will look at us and say _____________?” You fill in the blank and see if you are satisfied with what they would say. If you are, great but if not, maybe you should take a look in the mirror and see how you can be that person

you wish to be. The only thing that is stopping us is ourselves. Make sure your heart is in the right place and if it’s not, get it fixed! You never know what tomorrow brings. My personal goals are to be a good husband, a good father, a good role model, and lead a God filled life to the best of my ability. Sometimes it’s easy but other times it is hard to meet those goals. My challenge today is for us all to step back and look at every situation and ask… "If tomorrow never comes am I ready, prepared, and satisfied with the decisions, actions, and words we may do and say today?” Hug your family, tell them you love ‘em, and lets be proud of how we live today in case tomorrow never comes. Nick, I’m proud to call you friend and I know you were always looking in the mirror and thought of others and not yourself. I truly loved you! ▪

Troubadour Semen is Getting Hard to Come by... Here’s ≤e Son to Replace Him! A.

• This incredible Silver Baldy’s Mother is a REAL POWER COW that stands at the head of the pack in the Duello Donor Pen. She never misses...she doesn’t have good calves, she has great litters. • Masterpiece has got tremendous shape and flare down his top and is a great hipped bull with exceptional dimension through his stifle and twist. He is so impressive in the way he blends from his neck and shoulder into his body. This bull is beyond impressive in shape to his center and upper rib...he has a lot of flank and a hind leg to die for.

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. Wide Open’s pedigree traces to X339U on the top and bottom, plus Black Irish Kansas, Black Mick and 600U...maternal legends. • If you are looking to inject some maternal power into your cowherd without sacrificing eye appeal and performance, Wide Open is an absolute must use bull.

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. -The first calves have arrived...THEY ARE OUTSTANDING...HE STAMPS THEM! • Semen Available Owned with Anderson Cattle Co.

online steer show

A STEER SHOW FOR THE FUTURE A LOOK AT OUR NEW ONLINE STEER SHOW

A

BY BRIAN J. REID, BRIGHTON, CO

few years ago when we were watching the Market Steer Show at the National Western, we had a cool idea. We thought, wouldn’t it be cool if the people in the stands could judge the show. Maybe have a show where there is a people’s choice. Today, everyone is talking about online. Social media is huge. Why not try something that has never been done... an online steer show! Last summer we had a Facebook contest for the best state fair in the country. We polled everyone on our Facebook page and let them decide what their favorite state fair was. What started out as just a simple fun contest had over 4,000 votes and reached over 200,000 people! Earlier this year we were thinking about what we could do next. Most people never get the chance to show a steer in Ohio vs a steer in Colorado at state fair time. Many wonder, is the steer that just showed at the Iowa State Fair as good as the one that just won the Illinois state fair? This summer we are excited to announce The Showtimes Magazine’s Online Steer Show!

We’re looking for the top steer in the country. The best part, you can win without ever taking him out of your barn. There’s no entry fee and it’s all online! All you have to do is take a 15 second video of your steer and 1 photo. The video and photo must be taken and entered between August 1 and Sept 1. You can choose to film your steer from any angle. You can have him tied, loose on the move or walking him. It’s up to you on how you want to present him. He can be clipped or unclipped. We recommend showing different angles to offer the people voting more views. There are no rules regaurding age so it can be a state fair aged calf or a Kansas City or Louisville steer. Voting will be online Sept. 2-9, 2014 on theshowtimesmagazine. com. Everyone can go to our website and view the video and photo of each steer, then vote for their favorite. The steer with the most votes will win $500! The top 5 steers wil be printed in the Show Results section of our September/ October Fall Edition! All of the official rules and how to enter will be posted to our website theshowtimesmagazine.com.

meet the exhibitors

W

hen Lisa asked us if we would be interested in having an article done on our family we were extremely excited. Especially to have an article in such a great publication and reflection of the industry we are involved in. Our ties to Agriculture run deep. Both my wife Andrea and I grew up on family farms and showing thru 4-H and FFA. Both of us feel like we owe the world to our parents as they strived to push us to be as good as we could in everything we done. Whether it be school, sports, or showing. Andreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family were prominent figures in their community in North West Arkansas, where they run yearlings as well as a cow/calf operation. Her dad also rocrops soybeans, wheat, and milo. This agriculture background led her to showing steers from jackpots around the state to the American Royal in Kansas City. I grew up in Central Arkansas where our family also was actively involved in a ro-crop operation in the early 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Mom and Dad also ran about 300 commercial cows. Dad after retiring the ro-crop operation started a job for American Breeders Service breeding cows and selling semen. This way of life led me into showing and exhibiting steers as well as heifers throughout the state. Growing up I clipped and fit all of our cattle and learned by studying pictures of bulls, champions and by trial and error. Although it was usually more error. It was in 1994 when Mom drove me across Oklahoma to Leedy to attend a Stierwalt clinic that I began to grasp the whole idea. I went home and started practicing immediately, although I never won any major titles only county fair and jackpot shows, I was hooked.

THE CLARK FAMILY

JEREMY & ANDREA, ALONG WITH THEIR DAUGHTERS CHANCEE, CARLEE & CHLOEE, SHOW WHAT IT TAKES TO TRANSITION FROM ASPIRING TO INSIRING. BY JEREMY CLARK, AR

Andrea and I actually met showing cattle at jackpot shows here in Arkansas. We both were on high school livestock judging teams that competed against each other at state contest. Andrea and I dated throughout high school and attended Connors State College in Oklahoma. Were I not only continued to clip calves for various people but also was a member of the livestock judging team. The team finished no lower

MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 183


than third at all contests attended. After Connors we both attended the University of Arkansas where both of us were on the livestock judging team. Andrea liked traveling and seeing different ranches while working out but didn’t have as much of a competitive nature as I did. Although we never set any records I did finish in the top 10 in every contest that we competed in. Both our livestock background as well as our experiences of evaluating livestock in college helped us as we began selling a few calves here in Arkansas in 1999. We first started selling calves from Andrea’s parent’s barn as a way for a college couple to make a little extra money. We serviced the customers to the best of our abilities even though a lot of it was “by the seat of our pants”. That year our biggest customers were our siblings. Little did we know the selling of a few steers would turn into our livelihood. In the fall of 1999 I took out a loan from dad’s banker for $7500. Which isn’t a great sum of money but when you’re a broke college kid with about 5 cows and some clippers it’s a boat load. Andrea and I drove to Colorado with my dad in a borrowed truck and trailer to look at some calves, based on an ad we had seen in the High Plains Journal. Andrea and I bought 6 calves and some feed with this money, we sold all of the calves but one. I actually liked him the most and couldn’t understand why we couldn’t sell him. My sister ended up showing the calf. I still to this day don’t know if my parents bought the calf because they liked him or if it was to help us out. I suppose a little of both. The fall of 2000 all the countless hours of fitting and clipping other peoples animals combined with a little beginners luck paid off. The steer was reserve at county fair and reserve at state fair. That little bit of success was all it took. Andrea and I continued to sell a few calves some I had raised and some we had bought all while going to college. In the fall of 2000 we sold another group of calves, and again when I say group I mean like 7-10 head. Out of that group two steers went on to be reserve at the Arkansas Oklahoma State Fair and another Reserve at the Arkansas State Fair (ASF). We were married in early 2002 and also sold the reserve steer at ASF for a third year in a row as well as having our first born later that fall, Chancee Madison. Andrea finished at the UofA with a degree in Agriculture Food and Life Science. However I had started clipping more and shearing cows and bulls with a friend of ours Lloyd Doublehead, to help make extra money. Although I do wish I had finished college, having only lacked a few hours having a Master’s Degree in Ag-Ed. At this

184 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

time we chose to try and make a go at the show cattle deal. We both enjoyed the interaction with the kids and the feeling we had watching them with their projects throughout the year. We continued to service our customers to the best of our knowledge, clipping, fitting, feeding advice, and hoof trimming just like the “big boys” even though we were little fish in a great big pond. A lot of families had taken notice of us helping kids with these aspects of showing within the state which helped build our business. To Andrea and I it was also about the relationships built and values that we could help instill in the young people we dealt with. We found out very quickly this was equally important to others as well. Over this time period, 2000-2009, we continued to build our business around principles and aspects we found important to us. We had mainly sold steers but had sold a select few heifers as we were raising some along the way as we were trying to build a cow herd. In 2004 we purchased a farm which had been a working dairy and we began converting it to raise show cattle. We also purchased 2 tractors, hay baler and the rest of the equipment needed to bale hay for not only our own cows but do some custom baling as well. Over these


nine years we would travel to numerous county fairs, jackpots and district shows helping families with their cattle, and even had taken a few to the American Royal. At this point we were traveling to the mid-west searching for cattle developing relationships with breeders as well as other families. Although, we usually were buying the “sleepers” and green skinny ones, as we still do today. We asked questions and took advice as often as we could. All of which helped us with feeding strategies and selection based on genetic tendencies etc. At the conclusion of 2009 we had sold a few breed champion females as well as champion steer 4 times and reserve 6 times at the ASF. As well as the champion steer at the Louisiana state fair. We also had sold a heat wave heifer (we raised) whose first calf was the Maintainer Bred an Owned champion female at Maine Jr nationals for a young lady here in Arkansas. By this time we had three beautiful girls Chancee, Carlee and Chloee. 2009 was a big year for us. We had a great sale, and had accumulated numerous jackpot show titles. Chancee our oldest had raised a fall maintainer heifer out of an Irish Whiskey cow we had given her. We tried selling her as Chancee was only 5, but no one would pull the trigger. We then found out at Maine Jr Nationals kids can show at any age. So with the heifer being so gentle we decided to travel to Murfreesboro, TN with Izzy. We were excited that Chancee made the cut in showmanship

at age 5 but floored when she won Reserve Bred and owned Female! It was here where Chancee and the girls made lots of friends, like Mr. Jirl Buck and other juniors as well. Little did they know people like Mr. Jirl were the “Big Fish” that dad and mom talked about and respected for what they had done with their respective operations. The girls had no idea he was just Mr. Jirl or Bailys dad to them. None of us knew that dad would be helping fit with Mr.Jirls crew at places like Jr nationals and Denver in the years to come. At ASF that fall Clark Show Cattle had res. Steer and numerous breed champion heifers. The fall sale was a great success being a little better than the year before and sending a steer we had raised to the Jackson family in Sandborn, Minnesota. I had actually worked for Frank Jackson while in college as he was manager of Jacs Ranch in Arkansas. The following year 2010 was another great jackpot season in Arkansas. As we geared up for Chancee to take Izzy back as a senior yearling, to Jr nationals in Spencer, Iowa. Little sister Carlee had raised a late spring painted up steer out of a half blood simmy cow his name was WEE MAN. This year Chancee would capture champion B&O senior yearling while Carlee and Wee Man would win Champion prospect owned and B&O steer. Carlee had no clue what she had accomplished at age 5 but she did know it must have been good, cause after pictures she says in an excited whisper” daddy I beat Baily Buck”. Of course Mr. Jirl was giving them a hard time and Baily congratulated them. But it was on this day that Andrea and I realized something that a lot of us tend to forget. We realized it as parents and that’s sportsmanship. It’s important to win and it’s ok to be disappointed with a loss. However at the end of the day when it’s all over, the ring is empty and the mic is put away, how many of our fellow cattle enthusiast you can call your friends due to a noble victory, a respectful loss or maybe because there just good people. As well as know how to do all the above with class. Something I know we are all guilty of not handling in a good way at times in the heat of the moment, because of the countless hours of hard work and the time and money spent to get to that point. It was also at this Jr national while in the makeup ring Andrea calls me all worked up. She’s saying” you gotta get up here NOW, BOB MAY is asking if we want to sell this steer”! Well I get to the ring in a hurry cause who doesn’t know Bob May right, again another “BIG FISH”. He and I talked about WEE MAN and he bought the steer for Brock


for a later show, which ended up being Louisville. Man was that a long trip home but only being 5 there was nowhere else for Carlee to show Wee Man. We had no idea Dad would later do some clipping for Mr. Bob. That day we also had reserve champion progress with the steer we had sold to Carlee Jackson in MN. A day of milestones for us. Again the girls make even more friends as well as Andrea and I. Although we hadn’t won one of the “Big Ones” we felt proud because we were getting attention at the bigger shows with raised stock. Maine Jr Nationals 2011 in Kansas City proved to be successful once again. We had a couple division winners and a chi heifer that we had gotten back from a customer had won her class. At which time in the makeup ring Mrs. Deb Core (again no introduction needed) approaches Andrea about the heifer being for sale. While Andrea is telling me about it, Mr. Bob approaches us about the same heifer. Since Deb had asked first we offered to her first. The Cores purchased the heifer which later was reserve open chi at the Iowa State Fair. It was also at this Jr national that the girls were first and third in showmanship, something we were tickled with. Much the

same continues back home as we begin flushing some cows, and bailing hay. Continuing to service our customers who have had numerous jackpot champions, county and state titles, also winning champion steer at the ASF in 2011. At the 2012 Jr nationals in Lima we took two heifers and had two division winners. Again we

were super proud of the girlies, as they were First and third in showmanship on the Maine side for the second time. Chancee also won chi showmanship, while lil sis didn’t have a chi this year. But Carlee and Baily Core hit it off as Baily had bought Carlee’s hfr the previous year. Clark Show Cattle was growing little by little. While balancing customer’s cattle as well as our own. We sold third overall purebred Simmy female at Jr. Nationals in 2012. That female went on to be champion overall Jr. Simmy female at the American Royal. Also that summer we sold a res division Angus female and two class winners at Angus Jr. Nationals with three head taken that summer. That fall at the ASF we sold the champion steer and Chancee exhibited the res steer her first year to show at state. The sale that fall still was increasingly better. Selling a couple steers into Missouri to

Lexi Bremer. Starting 2013 with excitement, jackpot winner’s start coming in. Lexi Bremer exhibits two of the winningest steers in the country. While the girls and other customers continue a winning streak at jackpots. At Maine/chi Jr nationals in Grand Island the girls had champion owned progress steer, res bred and owned chi and maintainer females, and owned division champion chi. Showmanship stayed consistent with the girls being 1 and 3 for the third year in a row. And Chancee 2nd in chi showmanship. Carlee branched off with a char composite female for char Jr nationals in Texarkana. The November monopoly female was champion char composite, and Carlee won her first national showmanship title. Mom and dad couldn’t be more proud. Angus Jr nationals proved successful with four head taken with three class winners. Later that fall at the ASF CSC won light, middle and heavy weight champion steers and Chancee won champion steer. We also had 15 breed champion or res breed females. This past fall (2013) the sale was good, selling 15 females in our bid sale and approximately 20 other females privately. All steers


are now sold privately here at the place. We also took a big step and purchased interest in a promotional bull this year in Denver, Safe and Sound. Jackpot season 2014 has been awesome so far! You may have noticed as we went on about our Jr. National experiences we spoke less of the “Big Fish”. The reason for that is not that we in anyway feel like we are one , it’s just over the last couple years as we have went to Jr nationals we have developed relationships with a lot of people in our industry. No matter how big or small the fish, we are all people. It took us awhile to realize that, no one starts at the top. Having had the opportunity as many other fitters, to work with Stock Show University we teach and tell those young people that none of us are unapproachable. Don’t be afraid to talk to people. A person can’t learn or get better if they can’t do a few things in our opinion. 1 set goals as to where you want to be. Whether the winners circle or the number of head you want to sell. 2 Learn how to communicate an ask questions. If you don’t know find someone who does. 3 is work hard, if a person doesn’t want to work and practice, whether pulling a leg or selecting a show heifer. If they don’t work an practice they don’t deserve getting it, no matter the goal .4 is try not to worry about what you don’t have and concentrate and be thankful for what you got. All of which we feel is taught to our kids, as well as a lot of other valuable tools at Jr. Nationals. Not only in the show ring but also through the other contests as well. We feel that Jr. Nationals help teach our kids valuable life skills crucial to survive and be successful in todays society. We have now built up to about 60 cows and about 6 donors. We are selling cattle year round privately or on an order basis. We hold our annual sale in November each year. Although we are not big in numbers we try to keep quality as high as possible. We believe in sound, big bodied, functional cattle with some look. Customer service is extremely important to us, as all of you know presentation of animals is of the upmost importance, after all it is a cow show! We hope you enjoyed this little bit about us, and we wish each of you the best of luck and safe travels to your respective Jr nationals this summer! ▪ MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 187

WHAT THE CROWN STANDS FOR 2013-2014 National Hereford Queen 190 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014


"I AM AN AMBASSADOR, A ROLE MODEL, A REPRESENTATION OF THE BREED THAT BUILT ME." BY BROOKE JENSEN, KS

MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 191


etween a blingy tiara, a shiny crown, and red lipstick, there are long days with miles upon miles walked, great Hereford cattle and life long memories. It’s more than standing at a backdrop with a smile on my face, National Hereford Queen, is the experience of a life time. Hello, my name is Brooke Jensen. I am the 18 year old daughter of Kevin and Sheila Jensen of Courtland, Ks. I’ve continued carrying on my parent’s tradition of showing Hereford cattle since I was seven years old. However, my history with livestock began long before that. My father, Kevin Jensen, grew up in North Central Kansas showing 4-H steers and heifers before starting his own business of Jensen Fitting Service. He cared for and traveled thousands of miles showing numerous champions in these days, believe me when I say he has a story for every one of them too. While my mother, Sheila (Gordon) Jensen, grew up near Souris, Manitoba, Canada. Her and her siblings showed numerous breeds of cattle and were a part of the Kinnaber Cattle Company. After attending North Dakota State she joined the Jensen Fitting Service team around the time they were taking anywhere from 30 to 50 head to a show. My parent’s created large shoes to fill. My parent’s raised my two brothers, Brady 21 and Ben 14, and I in a hard working and passionate environment towards Hereford cattle and the beef industry. The American Hereford Association, National Junior Hereford Association and Kansas Junior Hereford Association have been a

192 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

very large part of my family’s lives and opened more doors to opportunities than imaginable. Working alongside my family and with a breed of cattle I am passionate about, has been the best blessing in my life. I love what I do, inside the ring and outside the ring. Supportive is the only way to describe what my family has been over the last 4 years of my high school career. I am an extremely active individual outside the Hereford industry as well. My activity ranges from 4-H, Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball, Track, FFA, NHS and three other organizations my school has to offer. There has never been much sit down time in my life, I enjoy working with others, serving my community and making myself the best person I can be through my leadership activities. The programs I have mentioned above have helped contribute to where I stand today. The incredible aspects of Junior Associations are the other events offered besides the competition in the show ring. Speech contests, 3 on 3 basketball, quiz bowl, and the mentoring program are just a few of the many events that the NJHA put forward. The program I have been a component of the last two years, and grown much respect for: the Queen program. When I decided to run for Kansas Hereford Queen, I had a goal set in the back of my mind to run for National Queen the following fall. Little did I know of all the friendships, the experiences and the character I would gain from being a part of the Hereford Queen program. Growing up, I always admired the pretty girl in white. She was poised,


elegant and wore a kind smile at all times. When my family had their annual Jensen Bros. Production Sales, I always wanted to sit beside the National Queen who was in attendance. I never dreamed I would become the girl all the little ones are looking up to. Last fall, at the American Royal a huge door of opportunity opened for me. The week started off with a tough decision and nerves bouncing off the wall. My team and I had just won our Volleyball Sub-State Championship match. When was State? None other than the same weekend as the Royal! As a senior in high school and a starter on my varsity volleyball team, choosing between one last chance to redeem my school pride at State Volleyball with my teammates or head to Kansas City and run for National Hereford Queen, was difficult. Though sending my teammates to State without me was not much fun, I knew a weekend in Kansas City partaking in the process of running for Queen would benefit me as an individual, and impact my future more. Well I was right, because the role of the 2013-2014 National Hereford Queen has been remarkable. Not many 18 year old girls can say they’ve taken part in an interview for RFDTV, can stand in front of a crowd to speak, traveled across the country, wear a crown while being a queen, or even write an article for Showtimes!! I get the privilege to work alongside our industry leaders, the men and woman I have looked up too since I could walk. I am an ambassador, a

role model, a representation of the breed that built me. My knowledge of the breed, and the legendary breeders has expanded greatly, the pleasure has been unreal with the chance to meet so many Hereford cattle enthusiast. I will remember this year’s long journey for the rest of my life. The people I have met, the history I have been a part of

how awesome is that? A few highlights of my reign so far, have taken place at the National Western in Denver and the Golden Nugget in Reno, Nevada. Besides all the blank stares and “Are you Miss America?!” I got walking through the famous Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Reno, was the sale on the stage in the hotel. An absolutely beautiful hotel and show room, and became even more beautiful as Hereford cattle were walked onto the stage and the showmen all knelt down for the annual famous picture and playing of the auctioneer song with all the sale cattle on the stage.

and the amazing skills and experiences I have gained from this role, mean the world to me. Advocating livestock and Hereford cattle has been one of my favorite elements of the role National Hereford Queen. I run into this duty most, when I am traveling. When you are carrying a leather crown box around, covered in Hereford cattle hair, you get a lot of questions and funny looks. The security guards and folks sitting next to me on airplanes can’t help but ask. I truly enjoy informing them of my reign and the breed of cattle I represent. I have even had to explain that yes, we do brush our cow’s hair. I don’t mind being called “The Queen of all cows” by a flight attendant, because I know the information I shared with that lady, will stick with her the rest of her life.

When I think back to my term as National Hereford Queen, I believe this is the memory that will always come to mind first. C Miles McKee 2103 ET was slapped Grand Champion Hereford Bull at the 2014 National Western Stock Show. Yes, this bull is famous in itself as he is the record selling $600,000 bull; however, what was special to me in this moment was the surprise that followed. Dr. Miles McKee of Kansas State University, a major influence on the Coyler family and the man who was the inspiration to this special bull’s name, walked into the ring after the bull was selected champion. The Coyler family did not know Miles was in Denver, the shock on Kyle Coyler’s face and the water in his eyes at that moment is what I will remember. Being a part of the Hereford Breed when such history is being unfolded is astonishing.

boots; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe my reign as the 2013-2014 National Hereford Queen will be over in just a few short months. I love wearing my crown and white wardrobe while representing a breed of cattle I am passionate about. This role has made me a better person from all the incredible experiences I have had the opportunity to grasp. Next time you see me, I will gladly share my story and a smile about Hereford cattle and being National Queen. I recommend this program to all girls in the cattle industry. National Herford Queen, an experience of a life time.

SOMETIMES THE SIMPLEST REMARKS OR ACTIONS CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. BY LISA REID, BRIGHTON, CO

200 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

A few years ago at the Badger Kick-Off in Wisconsin, an older cattleman came and sat down with me at our booth by the show ring. Class after class entered the ring as we talked about God’s plan for each of our lives and how He is in complete control. Everything that had been heavy on my heart that day was disintegrated by the words I shared with not only this one stranger, but with two other people that day as well. They just kept on showing up in my path. It was as if God was showing me that

I was where I was meant to be in life. That man may never know the impact he had on my life. I began to take notice of all of the good things and people around me. Sometimes the people who make the biggest splash in the pool are not the greatest swimmers. I had been focusing all of my attention on the people “splashing” that I had been blind to the goodness surrounding me, my life and others. Just as my conversation with that


man impacted me, we should always attempt to have that effect on others. It is easy to give way to temptation and respond poorly in certain situations when our own minds are heavy. But with each and every day, we should make it our goal to be someone else’s sunshine. I never want to be the reason for someone’s bad day. This does not just go for strangers. It can be a family member, a best friend, or someone from work. You never know what is going on in someone else’s life. Sometimes the simplest remarks or actions can make a huge difference. It is amazing to witness how a multitude of kind gestures and conversations can add up and define a person. This past month is a prime example of how one individual’s life can touch hundreds, if not thousands, of people. My grandpa died when I was too young to remember him, but my mom will constantly share with me some of his favorite sayings or life philosophies. “When you part ways, take time for that extra handshake or kind remark. You don’t know if your paths will cross again, so always leave on a good note.” We have all been in situations where a dream or goal we were passionate about did not have our desired outcome. One of my lowest moments in life came when I was blindsided by a group of individuals in a manner that caused me both hurt and embarrassment. If the situation had been handled differently, they

could have achieved the same outcome, but without any of the hardship. No one is perfect. But we should always strive to do our best in every way possible. The positive ripple effect this will have on others around us can ultimately shape their lives. Outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and even text messaging have recently allowed people to not only touch those who are close to them, but people from near and far away. While I myself have taken advantage of such technology, it is important for us to not lose sight of the simple things in a life. Sometimes a hug, an unexpected phone call, or a much needed plate of cookies can do wonders for the soul. So every morning when you wake up, make it your daily mission to be the person that sits down with someone by the show ring to share a meaningful conversation, or inspires others with their enthusiasm and passion for life and what they do. Make an impact. ▪

NICK REIMANN

I've never really stopped to think about it, but 15 years ago when Nick and I first crossed paths, who would have thought we'd be where we are today? It was just the beginning at the GCC showbarn when we were on the washrack instead of in the clipping room, the days before smartphones where we weren't on the phone all day, it was the place where we had no worry in the world besides trying to figure out how to turn our passion into a living. We both watched, analyzed, learned and experienced hands on from some of the greatest in the industry. As lucky as we were to have all these people who took us under their wing, I was just as lucky to meet and have Nick by my side through it all. Throughout all the miles spent driving, all the cattle bought and sold, all the hours on the phone, all the early mornings thinking about what to accomplish next, there is not one single moment Nick and I didn't share. 212 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

The determination to make cattle his living didn't end there. He grew into one of the greatest himself. His family, friends, colleagues and the youth of today all looked up to Nick. He strived to make his life better day in and day out and had the love and support for everyone he knew to improve right there along with him. Nick's memory will continue to live within pieces of all of us. Although it is unimaginable he was taken from this life way too soon, I feel comfort in knowing I am left with his guidance in my heart, his voice in my head, and his laughter in my ears. Nick was always there to make someone's bad day better. I hope we all continue on with his legend of striving to be the best spouse, parent, son, friend, cattleman and idol. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. - Luke Dorris

As a brother and father figure to Bayley, Shelby, Whitney, and Tyler, as son to Renette and Greg, and a best friend to all, you will never know how much you have impacted our lives. As a loving friend and a part of our family, we will always cherish the road trips taken, the memories we made, and especially those hugs and moments of laughter. The inspirational talks you gave and those stern conversations we had are what made us kids who we are today. As you believed in every member in our family and the way you knew we could achieve anything we aspire will take us further in life than you will ever know. Your belief in success and your love for the cattle industry is what built your relationship with many, and you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have made the Kroupa Family any prouder. Each and every one of us hope to one day be half the person that you were. You will be greatly missed and the day we reunite, as we hear your laugh that made many smiles, things will once again be more than okay. For now gone, walking green pastures of cattle above, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never forgotten. Rest in peace Nick Reimann. - With love, The Kroupa Family


There are way too many stories to tell about Nick that I don’t know where to even begin. He was the type of guy that could make you laugh no matter what mood you were in. He loved Kyrstin and his kids more than anything, and would call and tell stories about them often. He had the utmost respect for his parents and grandparents. He looked to his brother for advice and had a bond with him that few would understand. Nick left a mark on the cattle industry in his short life that was huge. As another friend said, he was one of the few that actually lived up to his potential. As we remember him, I hope that we will strive to be better ourselves and be more like he was. Until we meet again my fine friend “Here’s to the girl in the little red shoes.” -Jason Krick

Everyone who has ever been acquainted with Nick, they know he was a man of integrity, loyalty and passion. Passion not only for the cattle industry, but the people involved in it. The vision he had was remarkable, and he was a person that left an everlasting impression. Our family was blessed to be apart of his life and acquire his drive for success, and love of the business. We know in times of darkness and sadness light can only be shined through trusting the Lord and his plan, and that Nick was here for a purpose. Our hearts go out to his family and close friends. The cattle industry lost an outstanding individual and we can only hope to remember Nick, and continue to strive to fulfill what Nick set forth to accomplish. - Schnoor Family

NICK REIMANN

My husband, Garrett Hartwell, and I have known Nick Reimann for many many years. I grew up showing cattle with him and Garrett met him while he was going to school in Oklahoma. We attended Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral along with so many last weekend. There were some great stories told about Nick. There was a story told about how he and Kyrstin actually met. How someone told Kyrstin to call Nick because if anyone could cheer her up, and make her happy, it would be Nick. Well he did

obviously, and we all know how it turned out. Into a very happy marriage. Well I was telling my daughter Ashlinn, who is 7 about Nick. I was telling her some great stories about Nick and his family. There was one that particularly stuck out to me. Nick, Luke Doris and Kyrstin were at our house one spring looking at calves and it had just rained quite a bit. We were all standing outside including Ashlinn who then was about 2. Well, Nick being who Nick is, starting encouraging Ashlinn to

jump in the mud puddles and play in them. She started and Nick in typical Nick fashion just started egging her on more and more. Needless to say I was not pleased, but Nick, Luke and Garrett were laughing their asses off. Nick always found a way to make fun out of any situation!!! After I told her that story she started asking questions about why Nick had to die? I told her that sometimes Ashlinn we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why God needs certain people in heaven, but someday

we will know. She looked right at me and said Mom; I bet I know why Nick had to go to heaven. To cheer somebody up that was sad up in heaven! I found that pretty remarkable that she could say something so simple, yet so true. I along with so many people have been struggling with why Nick had to go at such a young age, but Ashlinn put a lot into perspective for me that night. I shared this story with Kyrstin and she really appreciated it. - Kari Hartwell


I don't know if anyone can fully put in words the impact that Nick had on all our lives. I don't know if I've ever known anyone with a more positive outlook than him. No matter what, everything was always going to be ok. I always think about the one day he came in the barn and said "Choate, how we gittinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; along?" My reply was "Nick, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed!" He immediately burst in to laughter, while I myself didn't understand why that was so funny. After that he would always ask me "you overwhelmed today?" and always chuckle. I began to realize that the reason he found it so humorous was that "overwhelmed" was not in his vocabulary. Everything he took on he took on the whole way, and nothing was too big for him to accomplish. Nick loved the cattle business and the people in it, and especially loved helping each and every kid that showed interest. At the end of the day though you knew where his biggest love was, and that was at home with his wife and two children, which made me respect the most. So with that I say rest in peace Nick Reimann, you will always be missed, always be loved, and certainly never forgotten!

Nick Reimann was an amazing man and a wonderful person; I was so fortunate to call him a great friend. Nick and I go back to the early 90s when we were competitors showing steers and heifers. It never mattered how we did or who beat whom, at the end of the day we were all together with a group of friends laughing and having fun. That friendship and camaraderie continued through the years. He always had a smile on his face and was the first to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He truly was a great one. When I was in South Dakota for that tough week, it was obvious how many lives he touched with the outpouring of support shown throughout the industry. There is a long road of mourning and sadness ahead for his family and friends, but we will cherish the memories and times we enjoyed together and find peace in that. I will never forget Nick Reimann and the friendship we shared, I will miss you buddy! - Kyla Copeland

- John Choate I was truly privileged to call Nick my friend although he was taken to soon I am grateful to have spent the fun times we did together. I've met a lot of people in the short time I've been in the cattle business, but I've never met any as happy to live life as Nick. No matter how bad a day or whatever troubles have come my way, I always relied on him to make me laugh or realize things were always gonna work out. No matter if you knew him for 5 minutes or 5 years he had a charm about him like no one I've ever met. He was a true legend in the cattle business, and I am truly blessed to have called him my friend.

Nick was a true leader in the show cattle industry and in life. He influenced so many people in a positive way. His legend will live on forever. He was a great friend and business partner and will be missed forever. - Adam Pryor

NICK REIMANN

We knew right from the start that Nick was a people person. Nick was always genuine, you could tell as soon as you met him that he had a lot of raising. From the start he was a natural seller. People liked Nick and they wanted to buy from him. He had that little extra that most people don’t have, you either have it or you don’t and Nick was one of the few that did. I’ve never seen someone that so many people thought he was their very best friend. I’ve talked to Kent Reimann several times through all of this. There are two stories that exemplify how Nick thought. Kent called a family meeting last winter and wanted to talk to Nick and Barry about how many cows they had, which was a lot, and Nick said, “Is that all.” Nick was a big thinker. His dad asked him once, “Nick why don’t you slow down and just enjoy life a little more.” He said, “Dad I want people to know Reimann Ranch from coast to coast.” Old buddy Nick you got it accomplished. There was more people at that funeral that had showed National Champion cattle than any funeral I have ever been to or heard of. All the great ones were there for you. When I made big decisions the only one I really ever asked about it was Nick, and I think he did the same with me. I always knew what was right in my mind but I always felt better knowing that Nick thought what I was doing was the right thing. That would be on a personal or business decision. I’m going to miss your calls Nick. We made a lot of trips to South Dakota and stopping at Nicks was one of the highpoints. We all wanted to see what Nick had in the pasture. Our crew has a lot of people that felt Nick was one of the “great ones.” He was a buddy to all of us. You never met someone that didn’t like Nick; he was just that kind of a guy. Nick damn sure knew what a good one was supposed to look like. He either bought the good ones, whether it was a cow, a steer, a heifer, or a bull, or he made

someone pay for them. The club calf business is going to miss him personally, but they are going to miss him in a business sense too. Nick was a big part of our sale, he loved Irish Whiskey, he believed in them, and he hammered away at a lot of them. I don’t really think it was your time Nick, but sometimes life deals you a bad hand. We feel so bad for your wife and little ones and the whole Reimann family. You died with some great men that day, all doing what you loved. For whoever is reading this when you go to get in that car with a person that’s been drinking or get in a plane when the weather is bad, listen to that little guy on your shoulder and think of Nick. Nick was never afraid to stand alone, for some reason that night he didn’t. They all got on that plane together. I talked to him on Saturday when he landed and told him how glad I was he was safe on the ground because of the weather. Sunday I said, “I sure feel better about you flying today” and he told me the weather still wasn’t very good. I wish I could tell Nick not to get on that plane that night, I think he would have listened to me. I’ve kicked my butt a thousand times I didn’t, I never felt good about it all weekend. If we all lived up to our potential like you did Nick it would be a pretty awesome industry. I’m damn proud of all you accomplished. It’s amazing for 33 years what you did. I’m just glad I got to be a little part of it. There is a quote that reads, “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful ones is a lot of hard work.” You had the talent and you worked hard. Keep raising the great one’s Nick! There won’t ever be a long, skinnynecked Whiskey that walks through our sale ring that we won’t think of you! Our deepest condolences go out to the Reimann, Beitelspacher and Rau families. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. - John Griswold

It was a privilege to know Nick. Two of the best steers we ever owned came from him. This last fall was not only Lisa’s, but our family’s last market steer show at Louisville. We had fun talking about the possibility of a “big win.” Nick came through with one of the best steers we ever owned; however, right before it was time to start clipping him and head east, the steer lost his teeth. No one was more disappointed than Nick. He immediately lifted our spirits by offering us a partnership on an Irish Whiskey heifer. We will forever miss the future that that partnership could have had. We enjoyed working with him, and he always put forth a special effort to see Jim. His love for his family and the cattle industry was obvious. His passion was contagious. He was kind. We will miss his camaraderie and most of all his smile. The Reimann family will always hold a special place in our hearts. - Reid Family

PEARL'S INSPIRATION IS MAKING THE CATTLE LOOK THEIR BEST, AND FOR HER CLIENT TO GET THE BEST PICTURE POSSIBLE. WE INTERVIEWED PEARL ABOUT HER BACKGROUND AND THE HISTORY OF PEARLS PICS.

MAY 2014

NEW MEMBER

PEARL WALTHALL Q+A WITH PEARL WALTHALL

222 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014


Q: What is your background and how did you become involved in the livestock industry? A: I grew up on a farm in North Eastern Ohio. That farm started out as a dairy, but became, predominately crops and beef cattle. The farm consisted of a purebred Hereford cow/calf operation along with a feedlot. This was an education in the best of several worlds. During my youth, I also had exposure to the processing side of the industry as well. It became a challenge for me to pick out the best finished steers on hoof and then view the hanging carcasses to see the end results. Although I like the challenge of selecting the best carcass steers, I loved the cow/calf operation more, and it lead to my love of breeding and showing cattle. My grandfather, who had graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in animal science, also had a love of showing cattle that was passed onto me. He used to tell me stories of his trips on the trains, traveling with the show cattle. Through my grandfather’s stories and his passion, I caught the “show bug!” Grandfather’s passion lead me to become a 4-H member. At the age of 9, I enrolled in 4-H and have been showing cattle ever since. When I was learning about showing cattle, my father took me to a nearby county fair to watch other 4-H members show so I could learn some techniques. With my father beside me, I studied them very methodically and entered my first showmanship contest the very next week. In my first showmanship contest, I was second…I did not like being second! So, I entered 24 more showmanship contests over the course of several years and won all of the rest! I continued my education by joining FFA when I reached high school; being one of the first females in my school district to become an FFA member. You could say I had a gift to show cattle. This gift got me jobs to show professionally starting at the age of 16. I showed for several large Hereford operations such as Spring Creek Farms, Pierpont Ohio and Glennkirk Farms Maysville, MO. My younger years taught me you could show your way to the top if you worked hard enough. Q: What is your current involvement in the livestock industry? A: My Husband Greg Walthall and I currently have a Simmental, Angus, and SimAngus® cow/calf operation. We have several wonderful partners that we flush donor

cows with, and market an elite group of cattle each year. In 2006, we sold our entire Simmental herd to Hudson Pines Farms in Tarrytown, New York. We loved those genetics so much that, over the next few years, we bought back several daughters. Those daughters make the genetic base of our current herd. One of the females that we bred and bought back was Denver Champion, HPF MS Pep 27T. We currently own her with Black Watch Farms and Herbster Angus Farms. Q: You have been extremely successful in the show ring. What are your successes as well as some highlights of your show career? A: I could write a book on this question, and I have threatened to do so! After owning WW Cattle Company, our fitting service, for over 20 years and having at least 60 head of show and sale cattle at our place at all times, I cannot come up with everything we have won. I can, however, count over 23 National Champions that Greg and I have shown over the years. Two of those National Champions were cattle we bred ourselves. In our minds, that is our most rewarding accomplishment. As I think about my successes, many are personal and not just a winner with a purple banner. One of my favorite stories is when I was in college and traveled to the NWSS with Glennkirk Farms. We had over 50 head of Herefords there, and I was outside in the tie outs brushing on cattle, because that is what you did back then, you brushed them dry! I was brushing away, and thinking how lucky I was to be in Denver working for $20.00 a day when one of the crew members came stomping up to me. He said, ”The only reason you’re working here is because of the way you look! You are taking up a good mans job!,” and then he stomped off. In my opinion that was the best thing anyone could have ever said to me! I didn’t get upset, I just thought to myself, “I need to do this job better then any man could.” I then set off to accomplish just that! I think that was a turning point in my life, and for the next 30 years I worked as hard as I could to achieve this goal. Some of my other successes come from being a problem solver. Back in the ‘70s when we first started showing yellow and white Simmentals, the trend was to comb the hair straight up on the cattle with a liner. This technique worked great on the other “better haired” breeds, but not on the course, flat Simmental hair! I set out to find a solution. Shortly after a few outings with the bad hair

MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 223


hall of fame

Simmies, I was in Denver and saw Darrell Hammons with a steer. His hair was brushed forward and was smooth. I thought that could work with my Simmentals. After being laughed at the first year for making my hair go forward, I think this method of grooming actually caught on! My ideas also changed the way tails were done. One year we were at the American Royal, and I had already shown fifteen head with about ten left to go. I noticed the tails were not at the right level and were tied up wrong. After the fifth time I had been summoned to the chute to give tutorials on the correct level of the tail, I took the clippers and cut the tail off. I said, “Now there is no guess work!” I went back to the ring as they all stood around the chute with their mouths open. I think after a while that trend caught on also. I think I will write that book! Q: What was the greatest thing you have taken away from your involvement in the livestock industry? A: Total fulfillment and bliss! I am one of the luckiest people in the world! I have been able to take a love and passion for cattle and make a living from it. Therefore, it isn’t a job. It is a way of life! I get up every morning and love what I do. The friendships and bonds that have been formed from being involved in this industry are a true blessing. There have been so many of life’s lessons that have been learned through my many experiences along the way! I would not change a thing about my life and I have no regrets. Q: What was the inspiration behind Pearls Pics? A: Since I was a small girl, I have always had a camera in my hands. I progressed into taking photos for the yearbook when I was in high school. Throughout my years on the show road and working on our fitting service, my love for photography continued. Owning the fitting service opened a unique opportunity for me in the realm of photography. Customers always needed their cattle photographed and, sometimes out of necessity, extra work was needed to make end’s meet. Filling a void, I took the opportunity, as I had helped every major livestock photog224 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

rapher get great photos, so I had a good base of knowledge. I knew I could take great pictures. I began taking all of our client pictures for promotion of the cattle we were fitting in our service. People began asking Greg who took our photos of our cattle, and he would reply that Pearl did. That is how my on location photography began. Secondly, when you own a fitting service, not much income comes in the months of June and July. I approached several local shows for a photographing job, and before you know it, Pearls Pics was formed. I started photographing at the Missouri State Fair fourteen years ago with the intentions that anyone and everyone who wanted a picture could receive one. We could never get a marketable picture to use for advertising when we were showing, and my goal was to make sure any exhibitor could get a great picture. It costs a lot of money to exhibit livestock ,and a good picture documenting a win is a necessity. What started out as a part time job turned into a full time job! The fact that I had so many already established contacts in this industry, gave me a jump start for my new business. The capability of knowing the physical strengths and weakness of an animal can help in the positioning of that animal. Not every animal has the mobility to stand correctly and I feel it is my job to make the animal look correct in its stance. My inspiration is making the cattle look their best, and for my client to get the best picture possible. Q: If you were not doing what you do now, what would you do instead? A: I can’t even imagine doing anything else. I will always be in the cattle business in some form or facet. I am a cow-aholic and I need my daily fix of cows in some form. I was recently in Virginia with one of my friends, Amanda Raithel, getting bulls ready to photograph. I looked over at her and said, “I love doing this washing, drying, clipping and photographing. It doesn’t get any better, unless you could do it on horseback!” My desk is positioned so I can see cows out the window


while I’m editing pictures; they have to go by my window to get a drink and I can heat check in the afternoon during breeding season while I’m on the computer! It works great! I really don’t want another job! Q: What is your goal for the future? Or something you would like to obtain? A: This is probably pretty sad to say, but I have reached most of all the goals that I have set for myself. I told my son, Justin Johnson, that I never set my goals high enough because I had already reached most of them. I want to continue breeding good, sound functional cattle that can contribute not only to our breed but the beef industry. Greg and I want to make an impact in the industry not just chase the almighty dollar and make that one big sale. On a person level, I want to continue photographing on location for as long as I can. There is something to be said about being outside in the fresh air with great people and good cattle, it is extremely calming to me. If I had to pick a goal, however, it would be to be selected to photograph a major livestock show. Q: Both you and Greg have judged shows across the country. What are some of the shows you have judged and what does it mean to you to be on the other side of the mic? A: I started judging shows back when I lived in Ohio in the ‘70s. I didn’t have a problem with giving my opinion. Greg and I have judged shows at the NWSS, Fort Worth, The American Royal, The North American, numerous State Fairs, district shows and Beef expos. Judging shows, in our opinion, is a major responsibility. We want to do a fair and honest job and judge cattle like we want to be judged. We have been on the other side where politics played a big part or someone had an agenda or just didn’t know what they were doing. I have always said that I don’t mind getting beat by a good one, everyone benefits in the long run for good cattle winning. I have shown under judges who have never shown an animal, bred, fed or raised cattle for a living and defiantly did not calve them out and get them bred back. If they did, they wouldn’t be picking the type that they are. When Greg and I judge, we don’t expect everyone to agree, that is just not going to happen. What we do want you to know is how we see the cattle and how we project them for the future. We judge from the ground up and they have to be sound, functional, deep sided, with a good angle and slope to the shoulders, long hip structure with a natural muscling, MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 225


hall of fame

which should show easy fleshing. (Easy right?) As judges with no pedigrees, what we do not know is the genetics which plays a huge part with how that animal turns out. We have to use phenotypical traits as tools for our assessment. That said, there are a lot of great judges out there that I love to listen to. I really do like to hear someone else’s opinion about my cattle, you can always learn something! We never get tired of looking at cattle! It is so rewarding to go to a show and have the opportunity to judge good cattle. Q: Is there something about you that most people do not know or that would surprise them? A: Most people do not know that I used to show horses. I showed Saddlebreds and Quarter Horses. Economics showed me that the six steers I showed every year paid for the two horses and trainers. It didn’t take me to long

to figure out where I was making money and where I was spending it! I also played five instruments and played in a symphony orchestra. That one usually throws everyone! The most suprising thing about me for most people is when they meet me ; I am nothing like they expected. You can’t always judge a book by its cover and you don’t always get what you see... .live life with an open heart! Good things will come to you! There are many people that have been a huge influence in my life and best of all great friends that have taken this journey with me. To all of you, Thank You!

Congratulations Pearl on being inducted to The Showtimes Hall of Fame!

CLIP LIKE A PRO BY WEAVER LEATHER LIVESTOCK MT. HOPE, OH

WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING YOU A NEW TWO PART FEATURE ON HOW TO CLIP LIKE A PRO! YOU WILL LEARN WHAT YOU NEED TO CLIP YOUR CALF. LOOK FOR PART 2 IN OUR JULY/AUGUST 2014 STATE FAIR EDITION LATER THIS SUMMER! 242 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

Whether you’re more experienced or are just getting started, clipping is a skill that takes lots of patience and practice. You will learn by doing, and making mistakes comes with the territory. However, the more you practice, the better you will get. In this two-part series, we are going to break down Kirk Stierwalt’s Clipping Like a Pro poster by Weaver Leather Livestock (see next page) that you may very well have hanging in your barn right now!

So, why do I need to clip my calf anyway?

Clipping is an extremely important part of getting ready for the show ring because you want to highlight your calf,s conformation strengths while correcting the weaknesses. The majority of your clipping should take place at home, which normally requires several clipping sessions, depending on the hair and how your calf is acting. So, starting a week or two before your show will give you time to get your calf ’s hair looking smooth and natural. The more you do at home, the less you will have to do on show day, which means you can devote more time to fitting and putting the final touches on your calf.

Now that I know WHY, what do I need? Clippers When it comes to the type of clipper to use when clipping your calf, it is often a matter of preference. However, the most common types are the two-speed or five-speed varieties. Variable 5-Speed Clipper


MAY/JUNE 2014 THE SHOWTIMES 243


BLADE TYPE/TOP VIEW

SIDE VIEW

Blocking

DESCRIPTION AND USE This is a tip-to-tip type blade, meaning that whatever it comes in contact with, it will cut. Ideal for beginners.

Super 2-Speed Clipper

USE: Shaping the hair, tipping/topping the hair and clipping paint and glue on show day This is a tip-to-tip blade but narrower at the teeth tips than a regular blocking blade. It will feed faster and be a little more aggressive at cutting. Ideal for more advanced users.

Super Blocking

Blades Before jumping right in to practice clipping, it is important to know a little about the types of blades you’ll be using. This chart at right shows the most common blades and their functions. Now that you've learned more about blades, it will be helpful to know what each of the bolded terms in this chart actually mean. Shaping - Transforming the conformation of the calf by using its hair to do so. This is done "freehand", meaning that there is no guard on the blade with the user controlling the depth.

USE: Shaping the hair, tipping/topping the hair and clipping paint and glue on show day

Medium Blending N/A

USE: Back dragging/raking, fading/ blending; will leave some stubble

T-84

HT 5/8"

Blade has a narrower width and thicker comb to leave hair 5/8". Grooves on the back of the blade make a nice, smooth and even cut. USE: Great for hair that has a little bit of length to it with little to no undercoat like shoulder and neck hair

Back Dragging/Raking - Turning the clipper and blade over on edge. The clipper does the work and your hand is the guide with light hand pressure. Back dragging is used where more depth is needed.

244 THE SHOWTIMES MAY/JUNE 2014

Blade is shaped like a “T” USE: Finishing (after using medium blending blade), back dragging (gets closer than the medium blending blade if more depth is needed); can also be used on the head and face

Tipping/Topping - Evening up the hair but leaving it as long you can. Tipping is done to take just enough weight off the hair to make it lighter so it stands up and out better.

Fading/Blending - Clipping from longer hair areas to shorter areas in a smooth, even fashion without it being noticeable. This provides a smooth, seamless look on your calf.

The top cutting blade is recessed back from bottom comb, meaning that the hair must get back to the blade before it cuts. This is the most universal blade for what you can do with it.

How do I take care of my clipper blades?

Clippers are an expensive investment, so taking care of them properly is extremely important. The first two items you will want to buy for your clippers are a clipper box or bag and leather clipper guards to protect the blades. These will keep your investment protected both in your barn and while hauling to shows. When putting your clippers away, it is important to remember to coil the cord rather than wrap it around the clipper. Doing the latter can eventually cause a short in your clippers. Other items you will need: Clipper Oil or Spray Keeping blades lubricated is important for clean, crisp cuts. Running blades dry can cause them to get duller and hotter faster. Do not use oils or sprays with perfumes because they can gum up when the blades get hot. Use a heavier oil on the blades to help prevent rusting when storing for longer periods of time.

Did you know...

Stierwalt ProGloss Finishing Spray also works great as clipper oil? Just clean the hair out of the blades and spray it on frequently as you’re clipping!

Small Brush Hair gets caught in the blades when clipping, so frequently use a small brush to remove the hair. Otherwise, your calf ’s hair won’t feed properly through the blades. Also remember to clean the blades when you are done clipping to help prevent rust. Blade Coolant It is not uncommon for blades to heat up when clipping for a long time. A blade coolant not only cools the hot spots of blades but it also disinfects and prevents rust.

Pig Face Brush

Blade Coolant

So, am I ready to start clipping now?

Not quite. Making sure your calf is clean prior to clipping is very important. Part of your daily care routine includes rinsing or washing your animal, blowing it dry then blowing in a light product like Stierwalt ProPink or ProPolish to condition and protect the hair. These types of products also make the hair pop for a crisp cut prior to clipping. Using a mousse like ProFoam can also aid in clipping due to its holding power that won't weigh down the hair. ▪ Here in Part I of Clip Like a Pro, we’ve discussed the equipment needed for clipping your calf. Stay tuned for Part 2 in the next issue where we will help you learn how your calf is put together and break down the steps for clipping each area.
