B

CHANGE THE WORLD USING YOUR OWN UNIQUE GIFT. e unique. Be consistent. Be bold. When I went to sleep last night I was thinking about why I do what I do. When I was little, I thought about being a teacher, a television host or even an FBI profiler. How, and, more importantly, why did I end up publishing The Showtimes? Every single person is born with a Godgiven gift. Something unique to them that, if used correctly, can change the world. I may not be able to sing like Shania Twain (although I sometimes try) or throw a football like Tom Brady, but I’d bet neither of them can design an ad or layout a magazine. What’s important is to realize your own unique gift and then run with it. This issue of The Showtimes showcases the top sires in the industry, the largest inventory of upcoming shows [which can also be found on our Show Map on the Showtimes App] as well as advertisements and features from leading producers, sales, showmen and judges. Not to mention the most show coverage in the industry. If you compared the content in this March/April Edition to that in the first Showtimes published

12 years ago, the differences would be numerous. The cattle are better. The showmen are better. The drive is more evident. This is because people have found their gifts. They have worked consistently to sharpen their skills. And they have made bold moves. With this issue under wraps, we are getting geared up for the Blackout Jackpot 6 on March 23rd - 25th at The Ranch in Loveland, Colorado! Without giving too many surprises away, I can confidently say that this show will be unlike any other jackpot! Be sure to mark your calendars. I’d like to end this note paying tribute to an amazing man who’s life followed suit with that of being unique, consistent and bold - Billy Graham. What a wonderful life to use as an example. In the words of Graham, “Read the Bible. Work hard and honestly. And don’t complain.” • Happy Thoughts!

Lisa M. Reid Owner/Editor!

I

must be having too much fun - time sure is flying by. It seems like every time I blink it’s time to load my bags and make another voyage to a livestock event of some sort and take time to share some of my dining experiences! You should know by now that eating rates pretty high on my list when it comes time to plan my next road trip! I’m going to start close to home this time, with a place that rates high on my list to eat while in Oklahoma City at the OYE. That would be NIC’S GRILL. This little hole in the wall - and I do mean little - is the absolute bomb when it comes to burgers and fresh cut curly fries! The reputation for this place is literally worldwide. You better have plenty of time to eat when you make plan’s to dine here. Parking is a premium and seating is very limited, but by golly the food is well worth it! I think you’d have to look long and hard to find a better burger!

CIMARRON TRAILERS / FOOD EXPERT

Next on my schedule to dine at is POBRE PONCHOS in Fort Collins, CO. This place was recommended to me by Brandi Cook-Herndon. Having grown up in this neighborhood. She informed me if I wanted some authentic Mexican food that this local institution was the place to dine. This little place was started in 1967 and remains in the family today. It has become a landmark for locals wanting to dine on the old-world cuisine and not just some fast food want-to-be place. This family owned business has stood the test of time relying on their best seller, the Paco Macho. It is a stuffed enchilada burrito with chicken and cheese and green pork chili

topping! The prices at this place are very family friendly. That along with the generous portions make it a must go to place for me. Thanks Brandi - I’m always looking for new places to sample. I reckon I’m going to backtrack and share a couple of places I like to frequent while I’m in Ft. Worth at the world-famous stock show. I enjoy good BBQ. That means just a short hop skip and jump and you’re at the front door of the RAILHEAD SMOKEHOUSE. This place rates right up there with the best BBQ in Texas making it the go to place to take the show crew when you hit Ft. Worth! This place has it all! The brisket, bologna, ribs and sausage along with the side selections put it real close to the top of the list for me. Plus being close to the show doesn’t hurt either. The quantities and prices also help when it comes time to feed a hungry bunch of stock show rowdies. Next on my list in Ft. Worth is the FLYING FISH. I do like me some good fish for a change of pace while I’m on the road and this place fills the bill for that! I may not look like it, but I do enjoy some good catfish with an occasional tilapia thrown in just for good measure and change of pace for the ole palette. Not to mention the grilled shrimp and fish are a pleasant surprise here as well. They even have burgers for the person that doesn’t appreciate something raised in water! Once again, let’s not lose focus on why we live this stock show life. ‘Til next time, and it’ll be here before we know it. •

ince we started the Blackout Jackpot back in 2012, our goal has been to give back. We grew up showing and always enjoyed jackpoting our steers and heifers. From our first jackpot that awarded $5,000 to the Grand Champion Steer to Blackout 6, we’ve strived to host a jackpot show that was unlike any other. It has always been about bringing in judges from across the country, showcasing different photographers, and bringing you a show that was fun and exciting. At the Blackout Jackpot 6 you can win banners unlike anyother show, show in a show ring that lights up and take a photo infront of our backdrop that is edgy and cool. It was also important for us to offer exciting prizes and give aways that every exhibitor could win! We also wanted to bring you a judging contest, fitting contest and an educational clinic for exhibitors to learn! Plus, you can even attend our Fellowship of Christian Cowboys Church Service on Sunday before the Steer Show! We hope to see you at the Blackout Jackpot 6 and Green & Gold Showdown March 23-25, 2018 at The Ranch in Loveland, Colorado! Learn more about our show online at theshowtimesmagazine.com/blackout!

How many families do you know that can breed one, take care of one, market one and show one all at the highest level? The Aegerter’s can and they are some of the best people in this industry! Could not respect how they operate and compete any more! - John Sullivan

Darla Aegerter is no stranger when it comes to the cattle industry. For the past several years she has played a key role in the planning and executing of the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) as well as many other Hereford shows and events through the year. From fundraising and organizing events throughout the week of the JNHE, to taking thousands of pictures at the different backdrops across the country, Darla has certainly become a key member of not only Team Hereford but a very valuable member the the Hereford family. - Bailey Clanton

BRAZZER

DALTON SHARES WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE PART OF SUCH AN AMAZING INDUSTRY. i, my name is Dalton Line, I am nineteen years old from Seaton, Illinois . Currently, I am attending Iowa State University studying Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine. I grew up on a family farm where we operate 175 head of Simmental, Angus, Charolais and Maine influenced show cattle. My parents are Todd and Joyce Line and I have two siblings, AJ and Payton. My main inspiration within show cattle industry has definitely been my parents. Through all the time, money, and support, they have shown me unique traits and characteristics for being the best person I can be which is the reason I am who I am today. For example, my parents showed me what it means to put all of your passion and drive into something and give your all, no matter the out come. My parents are the single greatest thing that God has blessed me with in this world. My background for showing started when I was just six years old at our local county fair, where I showed my first steer. This is the moment when I became addicted. Ever since then, I have had a huge passion within the livestock industry. At the age of 14, I started to show a steer that we like to call ‘Panda.” He was and still is very special because he become my first steer

@TheShowtimes

to be competitive at a national show. Panda and I received Reserve Grand Champion Market Steer at NAILE. Through this experience, I knew I wanted to continue to be competitive but also I knew I would have to work twice as hard at it. My newest accomplishment within the livestock industry was being selected Grand Champion Prospect Steer at the 2018 National Western Stock Show with my steer “Brazzer.” We received this one of a kind steer from Riley Jansen, Brad Smith and Wade Rodgers from Iowa. It was such an great honor to receive and I will never forget this moment. My family and I have been exhibiting all type of show cattle at the NWSS for about 13 years now. Denver is such a special and amazing place to be a part of and to be able to leave a mark on such a historical place is a huge honor. My family and I have had some great success stories over the past 8 years from having the Grand Champion Steer at the Illinois State Fair twice to several nationals champions at the

American Royal and NAILE. Through these amazing opportunities, I have gained a larger understanding of what it mean to be apart of such an amazing industry. Through these honors, I would like to thank a group of people who have supported me throughout my college education as well as the show ring. My parents Todd and Joyce Line, my siblings AJ and Payton and Grant Malone. Thank you so much for being the hardest working individuals I have ever met in my entire life. I admire all your work ethics for this industry. If it weren’t for you five, I would not be able to follow my dreams in college and also to continue them in the show ring. There are three families that continue to surprise me everyday from their love and support they have given me and my family throughout our entire journey. The Roeder family, Titus family and Malone family. Thank you all so much for all that you done for us. You are the people that make a kid’s life full of love and excitement each and every day. To be able to call of you apart of my family is the greatest feeling in world. •

DREAMS COME TRUE ABBY REFLECTS ON HER RECENT SUCCESS!

i! My name is Abby Bell. I am a Freshman at Bristow High School in Bristow, Oklahoma. I started showing cattle when I was 12 and it has quickly become my passion and my focus. I love being in the barn and putting in the effort to make my cattle the best they can be. Over the last couple years I have been able compete successfully in the show cattle industry at local, state, and national levels with several different breeds including having Grand Champion Open Angus Heifer at Tulsa State Fair in 2016 and Reserve Champion Charolais Heifer at Tulsa in 2017. Also, I’ve been blessed to have made the Premium Sale with Steers at the American Royal, National Western, OYE and Tulsa State Fair. I’ve met so many good people and have made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. My favorite quote is “It takes an army to win a war” and it is so very true when it comes to showing cattle! It is truly a group effort and I have the very best crew helping me, supporting me,


embryo transfer, watching the calves grow, breaking them, and then seeing them succeed in the showring. We are constantly seeking to make our cattle better and grow our operation.

enough to drag around an animal that seems like a giant to her! But we are confident she will soon come to her senses soon and follow in our footsteps. Just as showing is a family project, we also run a cow/calf operation together. Along with running commercial cattle, we also have several donor cows that have and are producing quality offspring. It is exciting to be involved in all aspects of the industry from choosing matings, helping with

I am so thankful for the opportunities that I have received along the way and especially this year with Annie. I look forward to showing cattle and competing at the national level for a long time! Vince Lombardi once said “Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to is” and that is what I aim to do. I might not win every time , but I want to know that I have put every last ounce of effort that I have into making it happen. •

and coaching me that a girl could ever ask for! My family is also with me every step of the way. We spend a lot of time together traveling and at shows. We also spend a lot of time together in the show barn. Sometimes we are having a dance party, yelling at each other, or spraying water at each other, but we are together and that’s one of the best things about showing cattle. My little sister, Ruby Grace, and little brother, Tate, show cattle as well. My youngest sister, Hadlie, is still trying to figure out if she is brave

This last year has been a dream come true in the showring for me. I’ve had an amazing run with my Hereford Heifer, Annie. To start with, I won the Open and Junior Polled Hereford Heifer Shows at the American Royal. At NAILE in Louisville we won Junior Reserve Champion Hereford Heifer and then Open Grand Champion Hereford Heifer. We then traveled to Denver to the National Western where she again was named Junior Grand Champion Polled Hereford Heifer. After Denver, Annie won Reserve Champion Polled Hereford Heifer at Fort Worth at the Southwest Exposition. To win at all these major shows has been a truly humbling and exciting experience. It has always been a seemingly far off dream to be able to compete and excel at such a high level with such elite showmen and breeders in the cattle industry. And to top it off Annie has been a blast to show. She is such a sweetheart and is laid back, but she knows when she’s in the spotlight and shows like a champ.

y name is Ben Bezner, 17 year old son of Mitchel and Ashley Bezner from Texline, Texas. My family runs a farm, ranch, feedyard and cow/calf operation. Showing cattle has been a long standing tradition in my family. For as long as I can remember I’ve heard the story of my Uncle Stephen winning the Fort Worth Steer Show and it has been a dream of mine ever since.

e’ll over on your steer side, once again another extremely high quality class of cattle. My hat’s off to these exhibitors that come in here. Six, or seven, maybe even eight deep cattle that I think if were in a different class would end up being in your top pair, if not possibly your class winner. I am going to tell you though, there’s two at the top end of this class that are absolutely incredible cattle. For me, the young ladies steer I lead off with, does so rather handily in my eyes. I am here to tell you guys this one’s an absolute stallion in my eyes. Beginning at the surface, he’s the truest and most honest in terms of his structure. The way he gets off his shoulder, the use of his front knee, his hip, his hind leg, his rear pastern is absolutely on point. He oozes quality from every single pore. So deep, so fresh and attractive. The way he sets hes neck onto the apex of his shoulder. Fresh, youthful and juvenile as you study him down through his chest. Round and robust in terms of his rib cage and design, and yet you get your hands on him and he handles like a true man. So expressive, so wide, and square and true over his rib into his loin. He gets progressively wider and squarer into his pin set. And then the young lady asks this one to lead, you talk about one that’s as mobile and athletic as any I’ve ever seen. What an outstanding creature to win this particular class. •

A JUDGING ADDICTION

BREAKING RECORDS WHILE LIVING OUT HER TRUE PASSION. BY ADRIAN AUSTIN

Just as the legacy of livestock evaluation holds true in my family, the history that is immersed in the National Western Stock Show is enough to give me chills. Growing up, I never had the opportunity to show at Denver, but had been a time or two to watch. Standing on the catwalk in the yards during Denver 2017, I recall turning to my brother and saying something about how special it would be if I was able to win the judging contest in a place that has been passed through by so many great stockmen. Flash forward to a year later, and to say I was incredibly humbled by my trip to the 2018 NWSS would be an understatement. I am honored to even be grouped with the past winners of this contest- and the idea that I have set a new record in the reasons division, but also with my high individual overall score seems unfathomable. It’s only fair to say that I feel lucky to have found a true passion so young in life, and to have been blessed by God with talent to succeed in this event. Not everyone gets the chance to find their passion in life, but if or when you do find something that gets your blood pumping like this, you should definitely pursue it! When it comes down to it, not much gets me more excited than looking at livestock and more importantly being around good livestock people! There’s not much more I can say other than thank you to everyone for the kind words and as always thanks to the crew who work their tails off to make the Denver contest what it is. Most importantly, the appreciation and love I have for my teammates at Lincoln Land Community College and Coach Craig Beckmier is second to none. I am fortunate to be surrounded by such high-class people who have made this journey absolutely unforgettable. We may all go our separate ways in the next few months and have quite a few stops left in our judging careers; but the time spent with my team in that 12-passenger van is something I will remember forever. •

THE SHOWTIMES / MARCH/APRIL 2018

s it is for many of us who grow up in the livestock industry, most of my favorite childhood memories revolve around discussion of good stock in the barn with my family. Yet, maybe not so typical of a young livestock enthusiast- I also have fond memories of trying on blazers that were much too large for my 5-year-old self, dreaming of the day I could compete in a judging contest. Livestock judging is something that serves as a legacy for my family. Both my parents judged competitively in college and my older brother, Kane, followed suit. From there the obsession only grew- my dad has served as a coach at the 4-H and (for a short period of time) the junior college level for the past 25 years and my older brother is currently coaching at a university. What truly has helped shaped my judging career though is the time spent on the backside of a contest. At a young age I got to experience the NAILE junior collegiate contest as my parents served on selection committees and as group leaders. Then, for the past 10 years, my family has hosted a contest for 4-H, FFA, and Junior College kids that now serves close to 400 students. If I’m being completely honest- we even have a Thanksgiving tradition of sorting through an extremely competitive, family-wide picture judging contest after we get our bellies full on Thanksgiving Day. Needless to say, it may seem as if the Austin family has a slight addiction when it comes to judging contests, but I really wouldn’t be where I am today without the foundation my loved ones have helped instill in me from a young age.

BEN + RYLEE LODOEN

DYNAMIC DUO WORKING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY TO STRENGTHEN THEIR FAMILY’S OPERATION WHILE HELPING OTHERS.


meet the exhibitors

esthope, North Dakota is the home to two individuals who have made worked diligently to leave their mark on the livestock industry - siblings, Ben and Rylee Lodoen. The oldest of six siblings (twin sisters Molly and Maddy and brothers Wyatt and Zane) to parents Matt and Jennie Lodoen, Ben and Rylee have been key players in helping develop and promote the family’s Red Angus operation, L83 Ranch/Lodoen Cattle.

In 2015 Ben was named overall showman in the very well-known Little I put on by NDSUs Saddle and Sirloin Club. A huge personal accomplishment I’m 2016 Rylee was awarded overall senior showman at the NAJRAE (Red Angus Jr nationals). Both Ben and Rylee have spent years working at Canadian Agribition for other producers. Ben has also been able to attend and work for producers at the Australian Royal. Ben and Rylee are quite unique in the fact that they work side by side, day after day, but yet know each other well enough that no words need to be spoken. They know exactly what the other is thinking and get after the task at hand. They have

Both have used their college educations to promote their family’s operation but also to further their occupations. While Ben is home full-time farming and ranching, Rylee has a business out of our home designing ads and sale catalogs, picturing and videoing cattle for others, and owns an embroidery business that folks order promotional items for their business. Ben and Rylee both exhibit humble character when working in the Livestock show setting. They do their best, work hard, present top-notch livestock and demand little attention for doing so. The duo is well known by the younger kids to be leaders and supportive. Ben and Rylee do not turn down anyone in need of help. They are currently coaching their two younger brothers in the livestock show world as well. A rare combination of siblings who promote their family’s operation by doing all of the sale and show prep without question. They know exactly how much hard work and dedication pays off and just get it done. From calving cows, selecting breeding combinations, making feed rations, and promoting the cattle in a top-notch manner. You won’t find a more dedicated, humble, kind, hardworking sister/brother duo. But they wouldn’t say that, only those that they’ve worked with will! • MATT + JENNIE LODOEN

THE SHOWTIMES / MARCH/APRIL 2018

Ben graduated from NDSU in 2015 with a degree in Ag Econ and Animal Science. Rylee also graduated that year from Bismarck State College with a degree in graphic design.

a common motto and that is “Giv Er.”

meet the exhibitors Once I had her home, I was a little intimidated. Yet, I knew Rylee and Ben would always help me when I had questions. When fair time came up, I was stalled right next to the Lodoens. Rylee and Ben helped me prepare for shows. Ben clipped my heifer, he took the time to explain to me all

about the great things about my heifer and what she would succeed in this year. He always seemed to have the time to explain and teach me about showing whenever I had questions. Rylee was my supporter and was present at every show. She always made it fun and made me smile. She pointed out what the judge was looking for at every show, and what I would have to do to make my sure my heifer would get a good placing. She showed me how to care for my heifer, and the day to day work I would have to do. This fall I purchased two heifers to show this season. Arrow, my first show heifer, has recently delivered a little red angus heifer. To this day I still ask Rylee and Ben questions about my heifers. I am very excited to be showing more heifers with the help of the Lodoens. I respect Rylee and Ben and their knowledge to the cattle industry. I appreciate their kindness and time they take to help me become the best showman I can be. • OLIVIA NITSCHKE

THE SHOWTIMES / MARCH/APRIL 2018

Last year I purchased my first show heifer from the Lodoen family. I knew if I wanted to show cattle, the Lodoens would mentor me through everything I had to do to be successful. Rylee and Ben were the two who helped me the most. They sent me their catalog for their upcoming sale and took the time to visit with me about selecting my first heifer. I was excited to know I would have a show heifer and knew Rylee and Ben would help me feed her out and get her ready for show season. I named my heifer Arrow, and Rylee and Ben sent me many pictures throughout the time before I went out the ranch and picked her up. Ben took the time to explain to me about how I would feed her, such as what feeds to use and what supplements would be needed to keep her growing and staying healthy. Rylee showed me how to blow her out, how to wash her, how a show would be run and gave me showmanship tips.

BY TONY AND BRANDY JEFFS, TX

A PASSION FOR THE SHOW CATTLE INDUSTRY. 316


uccess does not come easy, especially in the livestock industry. But the owners of Jeffs Cattle Company, Brandy and Tony Jeffs, have found that with their skills and knowledge of the trade combined with their “key to success” of setting goals and working tirelessly to achieve them, their dreams can become a reality.

set of clippers from the local Walmart -- a set of dog clippers, in fact – to have the ability to clip and dress his own calves. These clippers were just the beginning of a much grander future for Tony.

Starting as a young teenager, Tony found his passion for cattle while growing up in the small town of Glen Rose, Texas. He routinely spent any free time in his “Pappy’s” old, open-sided chicken barn, which he would later turn into his first “show barn.”

Hailing from Midland, Texas, Brandy grew up on a commercial Hereford heifer replacement ranch. She often found herself to be the only little girl working cattle on the weekends alongside her father. Not much different than now, Brandy would often be spotted spending her afternoons in the barn, as far away from inside the house as possible.

At the age of 14, Tony purchased his first

Through much trial and error, countless weekend jackpot shows, mentors such as Tony Austin and much more, Tony evolved into the cattleman he is today.

317


MARCH/APRIL 2018 / THE SHOWTIMES 318

Tony began his show career with steers and Shorthorn heifers, while Brandy showed Hereford steers. Both families instilled the strongest of work ethic in Tony and Brandy from a young age and taught the two that you can truly accomplish anything you put your mind to. It is a trait they both hold onto and, through all of their success in life, will always remind themselves of who built the foundation for them to live out their aspirations. Although individually Brandy never had much success in the show ring and Tony was only able to claim champion of his county show, the two have undeniably sharpened and perfected their skills and are now able to locate and fine-tune many local, state and national champions. The pair jokes, “if they had known then what they know now.”

Recalling their very first Hereford Junior Nationals, the couple remember seeing a pop-up tent with the words “Champion Hereford Heifer” written across it from the stands while sitting with the kids. Realizing this tent was, in fact, one of the prizes, they then decided that tent would be going home with them. They later found out that the title of Champion Hereford Heifer would also come along with a coveted bronze Hereford trophy. The Jeffs’ have set countless numbers of goals since that show and are beyond thankful to have achieved almost all of them. From Charolais Heifer of the Year to winning multiple nationwide shows back to back, some of which with the same female, has been an incredible ride for Tony and Brandy. The Jeffs’ are thankful for the opportunity to be intertwined in an industry that has brought them the best of friends, an extended family, who have played


Jeffs Cattle Company

a significant role in getting them to where they are today. They are blessed to have such a strong reliable group that will travel all over the country to assist their crew at countless shows all while treating each of the animals as if they are their own.

After relocating to Stephenville, Texas in 2017, the Jeffs’ look back on their lives and the many places their journey has taken them. Tony and Brandy have called many places home over the years and have worked with countless families. Brandy explained, “every time we moved on to something new, God took care of us and it was better than where we were before. We come to trust in God’s perfect timing even when you want to question him.” The pair has also proven to themselves time and again that when they work together, they truly reach their most monumental accomplishments. With their relocation to Central Texas, Tony and Brandy are looking forward to the future. They plan to continue to locate and sell elite cattle and to further work with hard working kids and their families in order to help them achieve their greatest goals. In addition to locating the best in the business, they plan to focus on extending their own herd of cattle, as well as adding to and deepening their set of donors. With the intentions of raising and selling more of their own the best is yet to come from Jeffs Cattle Co. The Jeff ’s continue to strive to be the best versions of themselves, while also becoming some of the finest in the cattle industry. •

THE SHOWTIMES / MARCH/APRIL 2018

In addition to the crew on the road, Tony and Brandy are incredibly grateful to those who are willing to stay home keeping things looking the part, but can jump back in the show string without missing a beat. They know that their successes would suffer without the addition of each one of their team.

FUN FUNFACTS FACTS

Nearly 19,500 head of livestock have been entered to compete at this year’s show. That number is up by over 1,000 head compared to the 2017 event. The event concludes on March 16th at the annual Sale of Champions. Last year’s sale grossed $1.13 million – all of which goes to the exhibitors. Only 211 kids of the 7,000 qualify to participate in the Sale of Champions. The Grand Champion Steer topped the sale at $75,000 in 2017.

HISTORY HISTORY The show began as a temporary adult breeders show in 1915 called the Oklahoma Breeders Show and Sale. This name was held until 1915, when it was made a permanent event known as the Southwest American Livestock Show. The show transitioned to a junior show in 1931 with the name eventually changing to the 4-H and FFA Junior Livestock Show. For nearly 60 years, the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce and the dedicated volunteer-base of The Sirloin Club of Oklahoma managed the show. The Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce understood the benefits of investing in Oklahoma agriculture and Oklahoma youth. They knew betting on an industry full of level headed, hardworking kids was no gamble at all and would result in a big payout for the state and its economy. When the Chamber became involved with the livestock show, they were fully committed to making it a success. Without the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, there never would have been a livestock show, much less one with 100 years of history behind it. The show underwent another change in 1994 when the Agricultural & Youth Expo was formed and the show was held in conjunction with the Spring Fair, a smaller version of the State Fair with a more prominent focus on agriculture. When the Spring Fair was discontinued in 2001, the Oklahoma Youth Exposition, Inc. was formed and the show officially became the Oklahoma Youth Expo at the 2002 show.

TRUSTING IN THE LORD AND NOT WORRYING.

remember the first time I ever competed in a livestock judging contest. Being a first year 4-H member, I was terrified to give reasons. As a child and even as a young adult, being put on the spot and having to speak your mind can be one of the most terrifying things there is. But of course, I survived and was better for it in the end. One of the best things about growing up in the livestock industry, is that it pushes us to get out of our comfort zone. Whether it’s a temperamental show heifer, giving a speech in 4-H or FFA, or worrying if your first calf heifer is going to calve without problems, we are tested to have faith over fear. Sometimes we pick and choose which commandments out of the Bible to really take seriously. We need to understand that to trust in the Lord and not to worry or be afraid is a commandment just like any other. Coincidentally, it is repeated in the Bible more times than any other commandment. Isaiah 41:10 instructs us “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” In most of the verses about fear, God doesn’t just tell us to not be afraid, he wants us to replace those feelings of fear with strength and comfort. We cannot fend off fear unless we replace it with God’s words of truth. We are to envision His power filling us full

of confidence and peace, no matter what is causing our fear. One of my favorite scriptures is Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lords always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Our God knows how hard we have to work to control our minds. Once again, we are told to replace the anxious feelings with peace and rejoicing. When we truly put our faith in God and know that he is in control, those feelings of fear and worry will fade away. God’s peace and worldly peace are two different things. When we are faced with situations the world would consider stressful or scary, the Holy Spirit fills us with Christ’s peace. In John 14:27, Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” So next time you can’t sleep the night before a big show, say a long prayer and ask the Lord to take your worries away. Your God is always bigger than your situation and so much bigger than your fears. Keep your heart so full of faith, that there is no room for fear. •

Red Neck

Red Neck might be the most exciting clean sire to ever hit the market place. This shorthorn marked Monopoly son had us excited the day we bought him. Then on January 11, 2018 when we received paperwork that he had tested TH Free & PHA Free we were even more overwhelmed. Backed by the powerful “Mel-Bar Dream Lady� PB shorthorn donor, Red Neck has already had flushmates that have won Fort Worth Stock show for Cyclone Trace, 4th Overall at 2018 National Western Stock Show for Abi Henderson, and a maternal brother by MAB sold for $53,000 for Bruns, Criner, Jackson. The work is done here, now go raise some high sellers and show champions!

1. History Lesson For The Younger Generation: Original Bleedin Purple was born in 2004 and was successfully displayed by MLC at the 2005 National Western Stock Show. He was praised as one of the leading Heat Wave sons of the time and was actually two years ahead of Monopoly in terms of descending from a Heat Wave x Angus cross. Monopoly being born in 2006 and displayed in Denver in 2007. 2. Untimely and unfortunate end for Bleedin Purple: In January 2006 while on lease in Texas Bleedin Purple passed away due to bloat. He was young and only had semen collected from his rookie year. That semen has since fluctuated in price as high as $700/Unit. 3. Recent success for Bleedin Purple progeny: While most club calf bulls are here today and gone tomorrow Bleedin Purple calves quality and consistency have stood the course of time and enjoyed their most successful year in 2017, 13 years after Bleedin Purple was born. 4. We have always looked for an outstanding Bleedin Purple son and in the fall of 2017 we finally found what we were looking for: Michael Greiner contacted us in the fall of 2017 about a younger bull with tremendous potential. He stated that Mark Copus wanted to purchase him for a Fort Worth Steer but he thought he might make a better bull prospect. After we got him home, John Maples was by the show barn to view a December sale group at MLC. He also pressed us to sell him for a holdover steer. The opportunity to add Bleedin Purple genetics back into the market place was too exciting for us to resist. So we now introduce Bleedin Purple 2, new in 2018 at MLC! #BreedLautner

TRUMP TRAIN The talk of the 2018 VCCP jackpot in Virginia. Clean & Colored Trump Train is an extremely powerful and square built sire that offers a more correct rear leg design than the other popular yellow and white sire on the market Dakota Gold. First calves arriving now in 2018 and creating excitement in the midwest.

NO GUTS NO GLORY The most unique TH Free & PHA Free bull we have ever seen. Bred similar to Here I am (Walks Alone x Heat Wave) we feel as his name hints at that he has the extra depth of body and flank to make high quality show steers and heifers on a more consistent basis. First calves arriving in 2018 and delivering more rib shape and flank when compared against the Here I Am’s.

DAKOTA GOLD Dakota Gold is proven to be one of the most consistent and dependable clean & colored sires on the market.

AMERICAN PHARAOH American Pharaoh is a bull that is definitely an up and comer in our program. More and more the university judges are leaning towards those exotic front ends. American Pharaoh delivers this feature while keeping the muscle and top width extra stout. We sold a small group of American Pharaoh calves in December from our Mother in Law’s commercial based cow herd. The top gold colored steer sold to Bob May and a grey baldy has already been selected Grand Champion at an Oklahoma jackpot. When you can get that kind of results from a commercial group of cows, imagine what American Pharaoh can get done on more exotic females.

Max Walter Lautner

he following is a letter to our infant son Max Walter Lautner, we hope he enjoys reading it sometime in his teenage years to let him know the circumstances surrounding his first few months after being born in the Fall of 2017. We love him and hope he enjoys reading this as a healthy teenager. You were born on September 2, 2017 at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

Make A Wish

Mom was having a normal Fall Saturday at the barn with Janie. You weren’t due for another 3 weeks and Fall Saturdays were spent working on sale calves at the barn. Dad was in Eastern Iowa at Ben Danner’s looking thru his sale calves when the call came that he needed to get on the road back towards Des Moines quickly, “drive fast cause Max is on the way!” Dad arrived at 8:00 pm and you were delivered only 45 minutes later by the night nurse Lauren as the doctor was just walking into the room. You were ready to be out and you were not going to wait! It was the quickest delivery of the three we had, mom did great with no pain medicine. You weighed in at 4 pounds 7 ounces and had a full head of bushy black hair. You were born with a condition called esophageal atresia, and this meant that your upper esophagus ended in a pouch and wasn’t connected to your lower esophagus and stomach. With no way for food to pass from your mouth to your stomach, intravenous nutrition would be needed. We were made aware of the condition over the summer leading up to your birth via ultrasound imaging. This particular condition is extremely rare so when your mom and dad googled info there wasn’t much that could

help us prepare for what was to come in the Fall. Your Dr. Tarun Kumar stated that we would feed you and let your two ends grow closer together and at some point have surgery to connect the two ends. Only two days after you were born, you had surgery to insert a g-tube for direct feedings to your stomach to replace the intravenous nutrition you received initially. This would become your mom’s passion, She spent countless hours pumping breast milk that would enable you to receive antibodies that would protect your little body and help you fight off infection, allowing you to continue to fight and grow. Daily walks down the hallway of the NICU were overwhelming. We worried constantly about the “what ifs” and the constant internal battle to ensure the best possible outcomes for you. During those walks down the 100 yard hallway to your room in #4005, were pictures of past NICU patients that had grown into healthy children. This was our wish, that your picture too would hang on the wall of the NICU. Most of September, October, November & December was spent with your mom spending her free time with you at the hospital. The nurses and staff came to know mom on a first name basis and she became extra close with many of them that watched after you when she had to go home. So many of these nurses would become allies with your mom, fighting for you, and always your biggest fan. Matilyn even got to meet you for the first time in October and she said she was going to be the best big sister ever. Halloween came and went, you were growing great. With each pound you gained it felt like a victory to us.


In November Dr. Tarun Kumar informed us that your gap between two ends was 1.5 cm. The plan was for a few more weeks of growing and then possibly have surgery to connect the two ends. Your sister Matilyn’s birthday party was November 3 at Chuck - E - Cheese. It was an enjoyable time with friends & family but mom and dad both felt a little bit empty that you weren’t able to attend. While you were in the hospital we had to do our best to balance a sense of normality with your sister and brother. They needed us, you needed us. We did our best to provide for all of you. On November 19 Michael got to come to the hospital and meet you for the first time thru a glass window. NICU rules say children under the age of 3 can’t enter the facility. Michael was excited even though there was a barrier between him and you. In late November another x-ray was done and the gap unfortunately had widened to 2.5 cm between the two ends. This felt like a huge set back. In that time period we were made aware of a procedure using magnets that pull the two ends together to connect the tissue. This procedure is useful when the two ends are less than 4 cm apart, the magnets polarity is affective. The drawback is there have only been 11 cases in the United States where this procedure had been used. According to our doctors the FDA would need to sign off on the procedure because it is not a standard treatment. So the paperwork was filled out with slight resistance from a member of the Mercy hospital administration. After a few days word was then received that the FDA had taken the magnet procedure off the market due to a labeling issue. Our doctors told us we would need to wait at least another month to see if your two esophagus ends came closer together. We felt this labeling issue was a case of bureaucratic b.s. This felt like the second huge setback. This the part of the story which we really want you to remember Max. On December 1 after a sleepless night and some consultation with mom’s friend Erin Houghton, they decided to send an email requesting emergency use of the magnet device directly to the FDA. Erin & Mom didn’t know if the email request would work but as the saying goes “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” so a strongly worded and compassionate email was sent with no assurance it would ever be read.

To our amazement and delight a return email was received the very same hour! They detailed what we needed to do to “grease the wheels” and get the ball rolling in Max’s favor. OMG! 90 days into our NICU stay and we finally saw a small light at the end of the tunnel. Exactly 3 weeks from the day the FDA letter was sent on December 21, you had the magnet procedure completed by Dr. Tarun Kumar who was guided by Dr. Mario Zaritzky. Dr. Mario Zaritzky was the creator of the magnet device and he flew in from Chicago the morning of the procedure. There were still hurdles to cross but the magnets were in place. Tears of happiness were shed. Then... you will never guess what happened the following morning. An early morning call from nurse Mel informed us that the x-ray showed the two magnets were kissing! Tears of joy were shed again. Just in time for Christmas Max was finally getting closer to the positive outcome we had hoped for. It was now the hope of Dr. Mario Zaritzky and Dr. Tarun Kumar that the magnets touching thru pressure would kill the barrier tissue and then scar tissue would form around the two ends connecting them. Only time would tell if this process would be affective. On January 3 Dr. Mario Zaritzky flew back into Des Moines for the removal surgery of the magnets. We once again were cautiously optimistic. After a 1 hour procedure we were informed the magnets had been removed and it appeared the magnets had been successful!! Michelle gave Dr. Mario Zaritzky & Dr. Tarun Kumar a very big hug on that day. While you were still working hard to prepare to come home, we were so thankful for everyone in our family, the hospital and the FDA. In mid-January we proudly displayed “Make a Wish” in your honor at The National Western Stock show in Denver. “Make a Wish” will always have a special meaning for us. We feel that “Make a Wish” stands for the dedication and perseverance that a family takes on to make things happen. We found in the Fall of 2017 this is true not only in the show barn, but within our own lives. We often get caught up in the daily work and forget how fragile life truly is. Max, thank you for reminding us that what we do should be done in love, to stay tenacious and not be scared to make a wish. -Love, Mom & Dad

EMAIL mattlautner@hotmail.com michelle@mattlautnercattle.com ONLINE MATTLAUTNERCATTLE.COM 2017 was our most rewarding year to date in the show cattle industry! As Jeff Miller from Indiana told us “you hear some people are breeding for maternal, but there is not a more profitable segment of the industry than raising show steers and heifers with club calf influence when you are marketing cattle in online sales. 4-H families are most excited to win the the county fair, district show, state fair or national market steer show. Especially when you are marketing livestock online. Is there any other way to market cattle in the year 2018, we don’t think so. With this as our guide, we are proud to offer you are newest group of exciting young sires that are sure to leave their mark on the show cattle world. In January we displayed the most & the best “In The Yards” and we hope to continue to do so in the future as we feel the live evaluation is as important as ever. As for the older bulls we will make it our stated goal to get as much Monopoly clone semen bred in 2018 as we possibly can. The show ring domination in 2017/2018 by this 10 + year old genetic line is hard to believe with the number of units slightly declining over the last few years. Make it your goal to breed your best cows to the Monopoly clones to insure high sellers and state fair/national champions as fat steers. Black Power Play & Goldie Locks calves will fe featured heavily this spring and next fall on the blog. For the show enthusiasts that prefer the maternal side of production, give our growing line up of Purebred & % bulls a look. We enjoy that segment of the industry also. Join us as we work to make some of the country’s elite show cattle in 2018! #BreedLautner

Velocit ir A d n a y it il b a r u eader in D

The Proven L

FAN stock Fan America’s #1 Live

• Nothing matches the Turbo for Air POWER! The Turbo pushes air 5,560 feet per minute at an incredible 1,740 RPMs and an industry leading 8,453 CFM’s. This is 22% faster and harder than the other livestock fans. Keeping your livestock cool depends on providing a push of high velocity air power to your animal. • The Dominant Motor Performance ... We have over-engineered the Turbo motor for added performance. The premium Nidec-Emerson1/2 HP sealed ball bearing motor features a very important component, a 10% larger internal stator and rotor ‘stack’ for more horse power than standard 1/2 HP motors. This extra ‘stack’ powers it to run faster than any other livestock fan that we know of. As an added benefit, the Turbo motor runs 11% cooler than competitors 1/2 HP motors, this allows cooler air output from the Turbo. All while only drawing 4 AMP’s of electricity, equalling a super efficient fan!

Quiet Yet Durable The Showbarn Fan is specifically designed for your livestock showbarn. It runs quiet and its air flow is dispersed in a wider air pattern. You’ll be pleased with our Showbarn Fan features: • The deep cage design allows for less friction between blade and cage resulting in a superior quiet fan with awesome air flow coverage throughout your barn. • Super efficient, heavy duty ½ horsepower ball bearing motor draws only 4 amps. • The improved deep cage has been strengthened with heavier duty wire to add durability. • Front hinged cage opens to provide easy access to clean grime from your blades.• Specially coated cage is black in color for a cleaner appearance that blends with your display. Some deep cage designs that are white easily show dirt and grime and are subject to fragile wires on the cage.
