From The Editor

Life's What You Make It There is no coincidence between success

I

and hard work.

n life, we make a habit of getting into a routine. We wake up early, go about our work - from feeding and washing to clipping and traveling to shows and sales - have dinner, work some more, then go to bed; just to wake up the next day and do it all over again. Even with the magazine, I have found that by the time we are done with one issue, we take no break before diving head first into the next one; if the issues haven't already overlapped. Many of the elements of this issue, however, will remind you that, while routine is not necessarily a bad thing, it is important for us to jump at every opportunity and strive to be all that we can be. No matter what your age, every action you take should be done with great diligence and thought. Watch those that acquire the skills you wish to possess. Work hard. And when you reach your goals, set new ones. While flipping through this issue, look at the show results, read the articles and features, and check out the ads. On every page you

will see how someone within our industry pushed themselves towards growth and success - and how others made an impact on an entire industry through their work and time spent with others - Scott Hessman you will never be forgotten. So while there may be a lot of luck involved with bringing home purple banners or raising the next champion, do everything in life to the best of your ability. If we all settled for good enough there would never be greatness. Or as Vince Lombardi once said, "Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence. I am not remotely interested in just being good." Sincerely,

Lisa Reid Owner/Field Editor

Correction

In our July/August 2012 State Fair Edition there was a typo in the Kirk Stierwalt Clippers & Fitters article. The family name of Kirk’s first win of a major show, was Lebsack. Side Note: The story of how the steer got his name - He was tag 99 and did not really have a name until Kirk came to their place to clip him. Kirk wore a Busch beer ballcap. They combined the two and the steer became Busch 99.

THE SHOWTIMES SUPPORTS THE 2012 COLORADO STATE FAIR

The Showtimes Magazine, owned by Brian, Laurie and Lisa Reid of Brighton, CO spent August 22-30, 2012 in Pueblo, Colorado for the state fair. As former junior exhibitors, we felt it was important to give back and help support the Colorado State Fair. Both Laurie and Lisa worked the steer and heifer rings during this year's show. The Showtimes sponsored buckles, banners, and the hog show this year. Lisa also announced the breeding sheep show. Laurie even represented The Showtimes as a member of the Denver Rustler's buyer group! The three of us have many great memories of the Colorado State Fair! Our family exhibited the Grand Champion Market Goat in 2003, Grand Champion Market Steer in 2004, 2007, and 2010 as well as Reserve Champion Market Steer in 2009. While we are too old to still show junior market animals, we enjoy showing breeding cattle and covering the state fair for The Showtimes! Be sure to watch videos from this years show on our free iPhone App! We have made many friends over the years and plan on supporting the Colorado State Fair for many years to come! 18 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

SULLIVAN'S PRIME TIME & TAIL ADHESIVE

The concept behind the two popular Sullivan adhesives.

BY JOHN SULLIVAN, IA

“How did you create Sullivan’s Prime Time and Tail Adhesive known as the industry leader” is a question quite often asked by customers and friends. It’s very important to formulate an adhesive to work in all weather conditions. Cattle create a lot of body heat and sweat even on a cold January day. The steamy, humid hide is the challenge and is exactly where Sullivan’s Prime Time and Tail Adhesive separate themselves from others. Here is a general explanation why. 1. Prime Time and Tail Adhesive are composed of, adhesive concentrates derived from extremely fine liquid rubberized resin compounds. Resins can be synthetic or plant based and are similar to substances found in pine trees and other plants such as rubber trees/plants. 2. Exact balance of base adhesive resin in combination with specialized propellant formulations disperse the adhesive out of the can in ultra fine molecules each time it is sprayed. 3. The evaporation system when sprayed allows it to dry adequately fast. Keeps it from becoming wet or “gummy”, very important. 4. The solvency of the product when first sprayed allows it to remain workable, flexible, and easily formed. 5. Unique balance of dry time: slow enough that it allows you to comb to desired position, yet fast enough to dry firm and clip off crisp. This all creates an adhesive that will not wilt or melt. This formulation is impossible to duplicate without our exact recipe. “Trusted by champions in volume”… is the best advertisement for these two unique products. Golden rule of doing a leg, brush with a roto brush or flex massage brush to set and break leg hair before you begin. Spray a little, comb a lot. And practice at home to improve your confidence. Better yet, attend a complementary Stock Show University two day grad program. This topic is covered strongly.

Back Leg after Black Finisher

Sullivan’s Prime Time is formulated lighter, is more flexible and clear in a pure form of adhesive. This is good for beginners or over-sprayers. Sullivan’s Tail Adhesive was created to dry faster, very crisp, the perfect adhesive for experienced fitters to provide a firm humidity-tolerant hold. Good luck at your shows. And always remember, without hard work and dedication, it’s hard to be successful. ▪

CLIPPERS - AND FITTERS

IA

Josh Elder

1. WHO THEY ARE...WHERE THEY CAME FROM... I was born in Iowa City, Iowa...home of the Iowa Hawkeyes! I graduated high school in Dunlap, Iowa. Currently, I live in Dunlap and have worked for Sullivan Farms for the past nine years. I manage the sale and show cattle along with Nate Tice and Jesse Hoobler. 2. WHAT/WHO GOT YOU STARTED WITH CLIPPING AND FITTING CATTLE? I grew up around cows and show cattle with my dad, Dan, and uncles, Vince, John, and Bart. They are what inspired me to work with cows and show cattle. 3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ANIMAL THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED ON? Wow, this is a tough question as I have been blessed to have worked on many national and state fair champions; it is tough to pick just one. James Sullivan's Irish Whiskey heifer that dominated the American Royal and NAILE in 2008 is one that always sticks out in my mind. Another one of my favorites is Nick Sullivan's famous state fair champion blue roan, "Breathless." My latest favorite would have to be my brother, Luke's, heifer from this year that was just named Supreme at the Iowa State Fair. 4. WHAT SHOWS DO YOU PLAN ON BEING AT THIS YEAR? We go to a lot of shows. Shows that we have coming up will be Ak-Sar-Ben, the American Royal, NAILE, and Denver just to name a few.

36 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

5. WHAT PART OF THE CALF ARE YOU THE BEST AT CLIPPING/FITTING? When I first started, I always thought that I could clip a belly better than any other part of the calf. Through years of learning from other great clippers, like Deb Vorthmann, however, I feel that I have become more of an all around clipper and fitter no matter what part of the calf it is. 6. DO YOU PREFER WORKING ON HEIFERS OR STEERS? I grew up showing heifers and when I started working for Sullivan Farms we showed a lot of heifers. So when I learned to clip it was mainly on heifers. I am definitely more experienced in clipping heifers, therefore I would say I prefer them. But I definitely like to clip a steer here and there.


1. WHO THEY ARE...WHERE THEY CAME FROM... My name is Tracy Goretska. My wife, Mandi, and I live in Corydon, Iowa with our 2 kids, Macey and Cash. We own a small cow-calf operation and have an annual club calf sale every October. This year it falls on Oct 20th. We’ve sold to many families over the years. Many of these families have become like extended family to us.

6. DO YOU PREFER WORKING ON HEIFERS OR STEERS? I prefer steers.

2. WHAT/WHO GOT YOU STARTED WITH CLIPPING AND FITTING CATTLE? As a kid, I was in 4H and showed cattle. I enjoyed it and had a desire to do well but wasn’t as successful as I wanted. As a kid, my biggest achievement was winning the Wayne County Fair in 1983. As I’ve gotten older and grown with the business, my expectations and goals have also grown. I owe a great deal of my success to Dave Jennison aka Whip, from Humeston, Iowa. He helped me as a young 4Her. One time Whip called and told me to get my Kansas City steer in and “knock a little hair off his top.” Not knowing what this even meant, I shaved my steer’s back with the flat heads. A few days later when Whip came to clip on my steer, he gave me a good talking to and the first of many clipping lessons. 3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ANIMAL THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED ON? My favorite steer that I’ve ever worked on was “Rico” my daughter’s 2010 champion KC steer. He was easy to clip on. Many claves move around constantly which makes it difficult to work on. He stood still and had great hair.

5. WHAT PART OF THE CALF ARE YOU THE BEST AT CLIPPING/FITTING? I'm not sure what part I’m “best” at but I enjoy clipping the ass, tail head, and hind legs.

4. WHAT SHOWS DO YOU PLAN ON BEING AT THIS YEAR? I’ll be at a lot of shows this year. I’ll be at KC, Denver, Sioux Falls, Badger Kick Off, IA Beef Expo, and many other shows across Iowa next spring and summer. My favorite place to go and show with my daughter is the National Western Stock Show in Denver.

Shane Lindsey

1. WHO THEY ARE...WHERE THEY CAME FROM... I was born and raised mostly in Spirit Lake, Iowa (northwest Iowa). I operate a custom grooming, hoof trimming, herd consulting and management service based out of Prairie City, Iowa. I am also a judge and have judged numerous national, state, junior and local shows in 26 states and Canada. For 30 plus years I have been learning the seedstock and show cattle business. I have been fortunate to have worked for and with some of the best people, programs and cattle in the industry. I am currently employed mostly by Cherry Knoll Farms Angus, in West Grove, Pennsylvania and JEM Angus in Gradebook, Iowa. 2. WHAT/WHO GOT YOU STARTED WITH CLIPPING AND FITTING CATTLE? My father Don Lindsey and through 4-H. 3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ANIMAL THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED ON? I don't have a favorite. I have worked on so many great cattle and look at them all the same. If I could think of one it would be one with a great attitude. 4. WHAT SHOWS DO YOU PLAN ON BEING AT THIS YEAR? Next will be the American Royal, NAILE, NWSS, Sioux Empire, Iowa Beef Expo, Mid Atlantic Jr. Angus Classic, Atlantic National, Iowa State preview, Eastern Regional Angus, National Junior Angus, then the Iowa State Fair. 5. WHAT PART OF THE CALF ARE YOU THE BEST AT

38 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

CLIPPING/FITTING? Tailhead, top and neck. 6. DO YOU PREFER WORKING ON HEIFERS OR STEERS? Heifers. I am about the seedstock and breeding side of the industry.


1. WHO THEY ARE...WHERE THEY CAME FROM... I live near Miles, Iowa in eastern Iowa. I am part owner of Wilson/Kedley Cattle Company. We have an annual September sale where we sell steer and heifer prospects. I will also be having an elite female sale this fall. I previously traveled the country for about two years working for Matt Lautner and Sullivan Farms. 2. WHAT/WHO GOT YOU STARTED WITH CLIPPING AND FITTING CATTLE? When it comes to fitting and clipping, I would have to say Matt Lautner surely helped me get to where I am today. Also, I just watched the guys that are really good and shows and studied the calves they clipped. 3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ANIMAL THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED ON? My favorite animal I have ever worked on would have to be a tie between "Blonde Lady," the Shaw family's National Champion Chi Heifer, and "Charlie's Angel," a National Champion Maintainer heifer that I showed. 4. WHAT SHOWS DO YOU PLAN ON BEING AT THIS YEAR? I will probably go to most jackpots this fall and will go to Kansas City, Louisville, Denver and Ft. Worth. 5. WHAT PART OF THE CALF ARE YOU THE BEST AT CLIPPING/FITTING? I feel like I am even at all aspects of fitting and clipping. But I sure do like to do a belly or back leg. 6. DO YOU PREFER WORKING ON HEIFERS OR STEERS? I like to work on both steers and heifers equally.

Kevin & Kiera Bremer

KEVIN & KIERA BREMER (Top) Kevin Bremer and his daughter Kiera had matching hurt fingers. The day before heading down to the Colorado State Fair, Kevin had his finger from the top joint up cut off by a rope halter while working with a steer. Earlier that month, Kiera had gotten her finger caught in a door. Each day at the fair, she would pick out what color of vet wrap they would sport on their wounds.

Tatum DePorter

TRAVIS & TATUM DEPORTER (Middle & Bottom) Travis DePorter and his daughter Tatum decided to take a break from their work in style! While The Showtimes was handing out buckets to exhibitors, they both proved that the buckets could be used for a lot more then just water and feed.

Mountain Home A furniture store with a history in the livestock industry! INFORMATION FROM KAY LA MONTAGNE, OWNER BY LISA REID

H

istory runs deep in the soil of the Hiwan Homestead in Evergreen, Colorado. Located about forty-five minutes west of Denver, one will find an old barn that carries with it the roots of the past while offering the public a selection of neat western furniture along with three other businesses. In 1939, the Buchanan family purchased 1,100 acres from the Douglas family and expanded the ranch to 15 thousand acres from 1940 to the mid 1950’s. The Hiwan barn was built in 1942 and housed W.H.R. Helmsman 89, the national known prize Hereford bull worth 61 thousand dollars in 1947. The original homestead was turned into a museum in August, 1975. The Buchanan family also had a sawmill, a drugstore and a restaurant in downtown Evergreen. One interesting fact is that the Buchanans raised 10,000 turkeys

annually for three years during World War II and sold them to the Swanson Company. It is not every day that one will find a place with such unique and enviable offerings. Currently, the barn houses four businesses and is known as the Evergreen Design Center. Mountain Home, a furniture store offering furniture, accessories and carpets in a setting that evokes textures and materials of mountain homes, is the anchor store. This is one store you will want to visit if the opportunity ever arises. The livestock industry has connections in all walks of life. Being funded by a prized Hereford bull, Mountain Home has earned a reputation as the top furniture store in the state, being named “Best Furniture store on Denver’s 7 A-List” as well as being awarded the “Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce 2010 Business of the Year.” If you are ever in the area or looking for something truly unique for your home, barn, or office, be sure to make your way to this Colorado treasure.

History of Ak-Sar-Ben Established by the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben in 1928, "The Ak-Sar-Ben 4-H Stock Show empowers youth to reach their full potential as productive adults through learning opportunities which develop life skills and character." Our five objectives are: - To encourage 4-H youths to learn and apply practical livestock production, management and marketing practices. - To assist youths in personal development and encourage character building, including honesty, integrity, credibility, responsibility, resourcefulness and leadership skills. - To provide an opportunity for youths to meet new people, share ideas and learn to work cooperatively with others. - To help youths look at the show as a learning opportunity in other competitive events (Showmanship, Herdsmanship, Calf Challenge, Lamb Challenge, Premier Exhibitor, Quiz Bow, Public Speaking). - To acquaint the public with the 4-H program and the livestock industry. To accomplish these goals, the volunteer AkSar-Ben officials work with Extension Offices, 4-H leaders and youths across the ten eligible states of Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

A true asset to the livestock industry. BY CLINTON LAFLIN, KS

86 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012


Meet The Exhibitor

me along the way, but none more important than my parents, Guy and Heather. In a response typical of my parents, they decided they would do everything in their power to provide for me. They made countless challenging decisions to keep my feeble body functioning.

INTRODUCTION

Thoughts raced through my mind as I stood in front of the show ring for the first time as an exhibitor. As a young man diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy my moment to shine was upon me. Beads of sweat started to form on my forehead and adrenaline pumped through my veins at an alarming rate. I maintained my focus the best I could by concentrating on the task of exhibiting my animal to the best of my ability. My thoughts were shattered by the voice of the announcer when he said “Next in the ring today is the first class of our Cow-Calf Pair Show.” I swallowed hard, took a deep breath, and led my bull calf into the ring. The only question was

would my hours of hard work with my cattle finally pay off? THE DISEASE I BATTLE EVERY DAY

Hello my name is Clinton Laflin from Olsburg Kansas. I am sure most of you reading this can recall similar feelings when you exhibited livestock for the first time. I didn’t exhibit cattle on my own until 2010, but my story doesn’t begin there, it starts much earlier. You see I was born with Cerebral Palsy, a disease that affects the central nervous system. When I was born over two months early doctors informed my parents that I might not survive, and if I did there was a good chance that I would be mentally challenged. I have had so many people help

These decisions included putting me on medications to keep my lungs inflated, surgeries to correct my walking pattern, and being on the verge of insomnia almost every night. Following almost six months in an incubator I was allowed to go home. When we went home for the first time as a family, people must have thought I was more of a machine than a baby. I had a mind numbing amount of machines and wires constantly monitoring my health. My mother’s most vivid memory of these machines is of one that monitored my breathing. If one sensor moved slightly or the machine thought I stopped breathing it would produce a screeching alarm. My mom rushed in many times thinking she needed to shake me to start my breathing again. It was a very scary and uncertain time for my family, but a blessing from above was right around the corner. It was discovered that I suffered some coordination loss and had

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012 THE SHOWTIMES 87


limited muscle control, but my mind suffered little damage. The capability to use my mind would be a huge asset to me as I got older and progressed through school. FAMILY HISTORY WITH THE CATTLE INDUSTRY

Agriculture and the cattle industry molded me into the person I am today. I don’t know where I would be without it. Agriculture is not simply a job to my family it is a way of life! I am surrounded by agriculture on both sides of my family. I am a 5th generation Angus breeder at Laflin Ranch, and enjoy taking an active role in the everyday decisions made on the place. Each generation of Laflin’s has taken pride in owning Angus cattle. From my great, great grandfather E.B to the youngest members of the 5th generation. I enjoy the opportunity to market our cattle at national shows throughout the country, making breeding decisions, and preparing

our cattle for our annual sale. My great, great grandfather E.B. Laflin started Laflin Ranch in 1900. I am honored to be a part of the 2nd oldest Angus ranch in the United States. I look forward to staying involved in the cattle business for the rest of my life. My mom’s side of the family owns and operates a commercial cow-calf operation in Eureka, Kansas. We have been involved in the commercial cattle industry for over a century. This operation was built by hard work and true dedication by my entire family. My grandparents Clint and Irlene Huntington, my stepdad Cory, my mom Heather, and my little brother Cash and I all take active roles in the ranch. We run an Angus based cow-herd and utilize choice Flint Hills pastures to graze yearlings during the summer. WHAT OPPORTUNITIES AGRICULTURE HAS PROVIDED ME

Agricultural related events have played a central role in activities I participated in growing up. From

88 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

FFA and 4-H to state and National Angus Association events, agriculture has been there. These opportunities helped me discover my own strengths despite my perceived disability. I discovered my joy for public speaking, livestock judging, and giving back to organizations like the National Junior Angus Association (NJAA). I developed my passion for agriculture through these platforms. I was a successful livestock judging team member at Butler Community College from 2008-2010. This experience allowed me to sharpen my evaluation skills, and improved my ability to think on my feet. I made some lifelong friends along the way. Through competitive public speaking I realized I had a passion for communicating with others. Both of these pastimes allowed me to invest my competitive spirit into things I care about. The NJAA provided a great way for me to combine my love for Angus cattle and giving back to others. The NJAA allowed me to expand my knowledge base through competitive contests, and meet many great people. Being elected to the NJAA Board of


Directors was an honor. It allowed me to impact the lives of young people in a positive way, and help juniors realize their goals. FUTURE GOALS

These opportunities impacted my goals for the future. I will graduate from Oklahoma State University with degrees in Animal Science and Agricultural Communications in December. I plan on taking my law school entrance exams in October with the hope of getting accepted into law school. I hope to specialize in environmental law. I would like to work closely with policy makers on making decisions that impact agriculture. Few people understand the needs of the industry, being a lawyer with an understanding is beneficial for producers everywhere. During and after this experience I plan to own and operate an Angus ranch. Through my challenges I have learned to roll with the punches. I am aware that life throws many curveballs, and these plans may change, however I believe if I am willing to make necessary sacrifices and improve every day I will accomplish my goals. PEOPLE I WOULD LIKE TO THANK

I could write a novel on the people I want to thank and why but I don’t think the editors of Showtimes would let me. Here are a few that I wouldn’t be here today

without. Thank you to the countless friends who have helped me believe I could do anything if I put my mind to it. My parents improvised, overcame and adapted countless times so I could realize my dreams. Thank-you for never letting me use my disability as a crutch, for teaching me the importance of a good work ethic, and helping me improve every day. I love you! For my surgeons who used their skill so I could continue walking. Thank you to my family for always being there for me. Ethan McCabe for being a true friend who never let me give up when the going got tough, and always being there for me. My cousin Josh Laflin for being like a second brother to me, thanks for the perspective you have provided through the years, and for everything you have done. Finally nothing would be possible without God above allowing me to grace this planet. Thank you everyone

CONCLUSION

Even though I didn’t walk out of the ring with the color of ribbon I wanted, my first show as an exhibitor couldn’t have gone better. I exhibited my bull calf to the best of my ability, and proved to myself that if you are willing to work at it anything is possible. ▪ The Showtimes would like to thank Clinton for sharing his story and wish him luck with all of his future endeavors!

Scott Hessman September 6, 1959 - September 11, 2012 The livestock industry suffered a great loss on the morning of September 11th with the passing of the legendary Scott Hessman or "Hessie." Practically everyone, including our family, has a "Hessie" story. He has impacted us all in some way and he will truly be missed. An individual. A talent. A show calf legend. -The Reids

Following his passing, many individuals, through Facebook posts and conversations, shared their condolences of which we are sharing a few.

David "Scott" Hessman, 53, of Battle Creek, Iowa, formerly of Spencer, passed away suddenly Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, at Avera-McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, S.D. Scott Hessman was born Sept. 6, 1959, at Muscatine (Iowa) Community Hospital, the son of David and Arlene (Jackson) Hessman. At age 1, he moved to Ida Grove, Iowa, where he spent his growing-up years. He graduated from Ida Grove High School in May 1977. He attended Eastern Iowa Community College in Muscatine for two years. He was the usual country-type boy while growing up and at age 9 became a member of 4-H. This was his beginning in showing cattle and learning how to prepare them for show. This was his life, and he enjoyed it. He was able to have his cattle at the Bremer farm, because he was a "city boy." The Bremers taught Scott many lessons. He showed a shorthorn steer that won 12 of 13 shows. The steer went on to be the Iowa State Fair purebred shorthorn champion and the AkSar-Ben champion. The steer was sold to Arby's Roast Beef of Omaha, Neb. Sheep and hogs were also some of his projects -- he showed the champion carcass lamb at Ak-Sar-Ben one year. He started his Professional cattle grooming business with

When I was 15 years old the Simmental Regional show was in Beatrice, Nebraska. I, not claiming I know anything now, but back then I had no idea how to clip or fit cattle and very little experience. And with no Stock Show Universities and Stierwalt videos it made it tough to get better at what you were doing. The day before the show I was hacking away on my heifer and a guy walks by and says, "let me show you how you should be doing that." He continues to clip my heifer and has me help him as he does it. I learned a lot that day. Mind you this guy was Johnny Hooks right

Gene Doran in 1979. He worked for Duane and Don Hilbert in Algona, Iowa, at Hartman Cattle Co. in Wood River, Neb., and for a few years with Fred and Mike Hartman. He learned the business well during those years with Kenny Bremer, Gene Doran, the Hilberts and the Hartmans. Following that learning experience, he worked for several cattle companies: Jim Morland family of Eastland, Texas, Jim Harrell of Oklahoma, Travis Otterstad family of Tuttle, Okla., Steve Bonham of Kansas, O'Dell family of southeast Oklahoma and Lautner family of Jefferson, Iowa, as well as many others. He was currently working with the Boyle families. When Scott passed away, by his side were his father, Dave, and special friends, Joan Ludvigson and Allen Swanson. Survivors include his father, Dave Hessman of Spencer (special friend Joan Ludvigson of Holstein, Iowa); his brother, Jay; nieces, Jade, Shanti and Sara Abbengast; and aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends. He was preceded in death by his mother, Arlene Hessman; paternal grandparents, David and Elma Hessman; and maternal grandparents, Ralph and Letha Jackson. - Sioux City Journal

I wasn't the only kid this man helped in such a way I will guarantee you. He enjoyed it. This guy will go down in history as one of the all time greats.

A great inspiration to be the best that I could be! - Travis Otterstad Whenever you visited with Hessie he made you smile.

ILLINOIS STATE FAIR

Elizabeth Heaton “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength”, were the only words running through my mind as I stood in the Grand Drive at the Illinois State Fair, what I consider to be one of the most competitive state fairs in the nation. Those words were the only comfort I could find in that ring, knowing that He was there with me. It was the most nerve wracking experience of my life, I could not stop shaking. There I stood belly deep in shavings that had been compacted over many years, it was my biggest dream to walk out of that ring with the Supreme Champion Heifer at the Illinois State Fair. By the grace of God and the preference of Mr. Ken Geuns, I did. Still today as I am writing this, I struggle to find the words to describe how it felt, it was truly indescribable & I am still more or less still in a state of disbelief. It has been a very humbling experience to accomplish something only a select few exhibitors achieve in their junior show career. I may be the one at the end of the halter, but I owe much of my success to God and my family. I really cannot say thank you enough to my brother Jon, I really could not do any of this without you. Thank you to my parents Rick and Nancy for all of their support. Also, thank you to Mike and Dalton Hartman, Jason Minnaert and all of the fitting crew that helped get Patsy ready. I will never forget the 2012 Illinois State Fair & it will always remind me of how blessed I truly am.

Giving Back

BROS. Paying it forward...one champion at a time

BY DENHAM MIRON, MI

M

y brother Dayton and I are 14 and 10 years old. We live in a small town called Escanaba in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a ways off of the “show trail”. With the support of our parents we have been blessed to have what we consider a “fairy tale” start to our show careers. I have shown steers for four years, and last year (13 years old) I won overall showman at our state fair, something I’m very proud of. My brother Dayton (“the lucky one”) has just completed his first year of showing. We try to attend 5-6 shows a year here in the Midwest with our steers. We also attend all the fitting/clipping clinics we can while attending these shows, Dayton and I (we are a team) do ALL the clipping and fitting on our calves, Dad says it’s more rewarding this way, though I struggled for a few years and made a lot of mistakes, I’m getting better now and it truly is rewarding. Last fall we were at the Badger Kickoff

142 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

in Milwaukee, Wisconsin when we picked up a complimentary issue of the Showtimes magazine. As we were traveling home I came across the story of Cody Huwa and his Colorado State Fair Champion Steer “Rooster”. The story of his sister Kylie and her cheer team touched me and my family so much that we made a pact right then and there that if we were ever so lucky to win “Grand Champion” at our State Fair that we would do as Cody did and donate some of our proceeds to local charities. So now it’s mid July and we just returned from a good butt kickin’ at the Michigan Livestock Expo in Lansing and my Dad tells Dayton and I that with the price of feed and all that we must choose our top two steers for our mid August fair and send the other two to market. Against my Dads wishes (I am a teenager you know) I went with my shorter bodied, well haired, Walks Alone steer ”Chief”. My brother went with a bigger framed Q Dog steer that I originally picked out last fall from a local breeder and good friend Jim Moker. Now it’s show day at our Michigan State Fair and wouldn’t you know my steer ended up being a tick too short and my brother Dayton (remember…”the lucky one”) wins GRAND CHAMPION with the Q Dog (“Ben”). Our champion steers don’t sell for what most other State Fairs do but Dayton and I (still inspired by Cody’s story) have decided to solicit a few local businesses to see if they would match our donations to local charities of $4,000.00. Thanks to Showtimes magazine for printing Cody’s story and thanks to Cody & his family for inspiring this “small town family” of showers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. As Cody and his family wished others would do as they did, we would also wish for future fortunate showers to donate what they could to help make a difference. I myself am very thankful for our Vets and their sacrifices so my donations will be towards the Wounded Warriors charity, Dayton, well he is an animal lover (yes, he really struggles last day of fair) so he has chosen the local animal shelter as his charity. ▪

Psalm 34:8 ”O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.”

FCC Message

Psalm 13:6 “I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me."

Be Still

I

"Be still and know that I am God." BY BRAD HENDERSON, CO

pray everyone had a wonderful year. I don't know about you but I'm still trying to figure out where the year went. It's seems like just a few weeks ago we were traveling around looking for next years show string and in the blink of an eye it's over and here we are again. Time never slows down it only speeds up. My wonderful wife will tell you I can never sit still and unless I'm doing five things at once I will drive everyone around me crazy. I can't sit still but let me pass along some hard learned wisdom. I seem to forget about the verse above until the storm overwelms me and I finally stop and cry out to Him for His absolute supremacy over everything in my life. "Be still and know that I am God." These eight words say so much and mean so many different things depending where you are as you read this. But lets break it apart- "Be still". Wow, wouldn't you think that would be easy? If you're a parent you

just took a sigh. The word "still" in this verse, in the original Hebrew means, "Cease from warlike activites". Let me tell you a little bit about the Henderson ranch- the Lord blessed my angel of a wife and me with four wonderful kids. Our oldest, a strong 17 year old man (he left the description of boy behind years ago). In fact, he was probably more mature than his Dad since he turned 5. Our oldest daughter is now 16 and she blesses me daily with her beauty that beams from the biggest heart I've ever been blessed to know. I just stand in awe of what God is doing with our first two despite my failures. We had a slight break between the first two and the second set. Our youngest son is now 12 and he is an exact duplicate of my Dad and my Grandpa rolled into one- strong, fast, easily bored like his dad, but with a heart for animals that only rivals one person on this planet, his Great Grandma. And then there's our youngest daughter, who is now 10. Yes, she's my baby and I'm doing all I can to keep her there but she's growing up so fast. Just like her sister- So smart, so beautiful, and they both have me wrapped around their little finger- ask our sons! With four siblings in our home, "Ceasing from warlike

144 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

activities" or being "still" is a rare occurance in our home. Add to that, all show livestock. All four compete in rodeo. One is also into motocross. They all play school sports and each have non-livestock projects. For 17 years now, my wife's Suburban would fly into the yard, slow to a pace the kids could run at top speed to catch, suddenly doors would open and two kids would bale out while the other two would jump in and in a plume of diesel smoke it would roar off to the next activity. Same for the truck and trailer- constantly being converted (sometimes while going down the road) from horse hauler to show trailer. It may be an insane lifestyle to someone outside of it, but for those families emersed like ours, we wouldn't have it any other way. But I'll be the first to admit the whirlwind can sometimes become overwhelming. I am so bad about gathering those reins in my hands and trying to make life go where I think it needs to go. I try to control everything, and think I can, when in reality my life is totally out of my control. Thank God, He is in total control of this entire universe that He created - from the tiniest atomic particle to the huge galaxies you see in science books. But like David says in Psalm 40:17, "But I


am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me." That verse always gives me chills. The Creator of this huge universe "thinks about me". Every moment He is focused on me. How often to I even take a few seconds to acknowledge Him? He wants us to seek His face and His will for our lives, moment by moment, and turn it all over to Him so His Name will be glorified in every corner of our lives. His love for us is beyond our comprehension and I can't tell you the peace of knowing that He is God and in absolute control. I pray that you and your family take take a break between show seasons and refresh. I pray that when this next show year fires off at warp speed you will make it a point to pause, as often as you can, and trully "be still" and know that He is God, your heavenly Father. I can't put into words the peace of knowing Him and putting it all in His hands. â–Ş

Nigro’s Western Store A store who’s quality boots and service have become a must buy within our industry!

T

BY ANITA NIGRO

he Nigro family didn’t start out in the western retail industry. They have found it to be their niche. Tony Nigro Sr. and his wife Lucy, both who have now passed away, began in the grocery business in 1948 on the corner of 34th and Merriam Lane in Kansas City. A few years later they decided to fill some empty warehouse space in the back of the store with a small inventory of western products. Over the years, that part of the business gradually grew with the help of their sons.. In 1983, they got out of the grocery business and converted the 10,000 sq.ft. grocery store into a western store. Today the store is owned and operated by Tony Jr., David Sr., his wife Anita and their son David Jr. Nigro’s has an immense inventory of boots. Brands include Rios of Mercedes, Anderson Bean, Ariat, Justin, Lucchese, Corral, Durango, Old West, Tony Lama and Nacona. With Jeans in the thousands, brands include, Wrangler, Levi, Cinch, Ariat, Carhart, Lee, Miss Me, Grace in LA, Rock 47 and Petrol. They have western Shirts, Hats, saddles, tack, horse supply and over 1500 belts to choose from. There is a ladies boutique section of fine clothing, handbags, wallets, jewelery and accessories.

Salted Peanut Chews

Cream Can Dinner

These are some of the most popular cookies that Janice brings to many shows. It’s almost a given that they show up at every show and disappear quickly.

This has been an end of summer tradition and also birthday celebrations, cowboy style dinner, for many years in our family. We do this in a 10 ½ gallon metal milk can but you can also do it in a number of different ways including a dutch oven or even a large kettle on a gas grill.

By: Janice Reitzenstein

Crust 1 ½ c all purpose flour ½ c margarine or butter, softened 2/3 c. brown sugar, firmly packed ½ tsp salt ¼ tsp baking soda ½ tsp baking powder 1 tsp vanilla 2 egg yolks 3 c. miniature marshmallows

Sandra Yearous and Janice Reitzenstein, affectionately known by some as the “Grandma Posse” are often seen at cattle shows watching their grandkids. Sandra is from Fort Morgan and Janice resides in Thorton, Colorado. They have been watching their grandkids show for over 15 years and are always known for the tasty treats they bring to share. Kyndal and Austin Reitzenstein from Kersey, CO are Sandra and Janice’s grandchildren and many of their friends know it’s a good time to visit their showbox when the “Grandma Posse” bring their goodies. Sandra also enjoys watching her other grandchildren, Kassandra and Coy Shoemaker show cattle and horses. Janice’s other grandchildren, Kyle, Shane, Chase, and Reese Anderson from Chrisman, Illinois also show cattle. 160 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

Topping 2/3 c. corn syrup ¼ c. margarine or butter 2 tsp vanilla 2 c. crisp rice cereal 12 oz package or peanut butter chips 2 c. salted peanuts Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine all crust ingredients, except marshmallows, until crumbly. Press firmly in bottom of ungreased 9x13 pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle marshmallows evenly over crust. Return to oven and bake until puffy, about 1-3 minutes. Remove from oven. In microwave safe bowl combine corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and peanut butter chips until melted and smooth. Add to cereal and peanuts. Immediately spread over marshmallows while still warm. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

By: Sandra Yearous

1. Dig a pit and make a fire out of wood and let it burn to embers. Add 1-2 bags of charcoal. 2. Put 3-4 fist sized rocks in the bottom of the milk can. This is to keep the food from sticking to the bottom of the can and allowing steaming, which is important for the cooking. 3. Layer 2 dozen ears of corn on the cob (we prefer to break them in half) on top of the rocks in the milk can. 4. Place 10-12 pounds of medium sized potatoes on top of the corn. 5. Next layer enough peeled carrots for 30 servings. If using large carrots cut them into large chunks. 6. Quarter 2 large heads of cabbage and place them on top of the carrots. 7. Cut 6-8 large onions and add them to the can. 8. Finally layer 10 lbs of meat on top of all of the veggies. We use a variety including German Sausage, Polish Sausage, Brats, and


Italian Sausage. Do not fill past the neck of the can. We typically put a single potato on top of the meat. This is a pretty good indicator to test whether or not the contents are fully cooked.

9. Pour in 1 quart of water with 2 tsp. of salt over the top. 10. Hammer on lid. Make sure there is a small hole in the lid for steam to escape. 11. Place milk can on wire mesh or cinderblocks over the embers. DO NOT place milk can directly on wood/coals. 12. When the steam starts to come out of the hole in the lid (35-45 minutes) cook for another 35-45 minutes. (total cook time should be about 1½ -2 hours) 13. Test the potato on top for doneness. 14. Pour food into wheelbarrow, lined with tarp or tin foil, or a wash tub. Enjoy. If you want to make a smaller version, adjust the amount of ingredients and follow same steps but put into a crock pot for 4-5 hours on high.

SHOW.RITE TIP

Breaking your calf this fall.

BY DAVE GUYER, IL

166 THE SHOWTIMES SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012

If you are showing spring borns it's that time of the year that you are going to be getting calves in soon to get broke. If you show summer borns this will be a liitle early but you can put it away in your memory bank for later. Breaking a calf is something that I think is very important to be done correctly. It's kinda like a young person creating some bad habits and then it's hard to break them of it. So let's try not to let our calf create any bad habits right off the bat. A good example is letting them drag a halter. I personally am not a fan of letting them drag a halter. You put it on to get them use to it but all it teaches them is to put their head down and pull. You think about it, as they are dragging that halter and they step on it, it pulls their head down and the more they move forward and pull harder the halter releases from under their foot. In short you are teaching them to put their head down and pull and they can get away from the pressure. If you wish to let them get use to a halter, I would prefer putting them in an aisle way or working chute with the halter. Then you can get close to teach them you are on their team and not there to hurt em. Then you can tie em up right there also as they can't swing around or go anywhere. Be sure to start by tying them with their heads down. Don't tie one with their head up until you feel they have got to the point in the learning process that you feel confident it is safe to do so. When tying up in a stall don't be afraid be afraid to leave tied for most of the daylight hours for three or four days. Don't tie them by themselves, I like to tie them side by side right up against another calf or calves or against a wall. This way you are are teach them to stand straight in the stall. Don't let a calf pull their ears down. If they are one that pulls and pulls hard and isn't letting up, then untie and you are going to tie up more times for short periods. The best advice I can give on one that pulls or one that has some fire or spunk is to tie in a stall as long as the halter will allow. Yes give them four or more feet of rope. This way they don't feel confined and will give into the halter sooner. Then as time goes you can shorten and shorten the halter. This technic is what we use the most even with large numbesr. You can use a donkey if you have accsess to one that works. Be sure you know the donkey because they can bite and kick. To avoid this be sure to tie them close together at about 12 to 16 inchs. Be patient in the breaking process and don't loose your cool. It takes some calves a little time to come around but over the years I have only had a few that we couldn't conquer. Remember if you have chosen to show livestock as a family, it is a great place to teach responsibility, dedication, and reward. Good luck at the shows and have fun.
