Looking Through a Different Eye Glass

T

he National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference is behind us as I set down to write this article. The excitement and energy that Shorthorn youth and seniors displayed in Abilene, Texas was extremely gratifying. With the country in a state of confusion due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Governor of Texas began closing businesses and limiting gatherings because of a new spike in Covid-19 cases, and still, the Shorthorn show went on. Shorthorn families came from 22 states for a week of normalcy and this gathering of our Shorthorn family united the breed and the people in it. Those who attended went about business as usual and enjoyed time with friends while making new relationships. We were able to maintain a normal Junior National with all the usual activities. We may be the only breed that was able to do this in 2020. I personally want to thank the ASA staff, the Texas Committee and the AJSA Board for their efforts and the ASA Board for believing we could get it done. There were a few hoops we had to jump through but with the help and support of the folks at the Abilene facility, sponsors, donors, the breed, and most importantly, the youth of the breed, we had a great event! The National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference is the largest event of the breed each year. Many focused on the show winners, but I want to point out some of the other activities. This event is building future leaders of our breed and country. The youth of the Shorthorn families are participating in many contests such as Speech, Digital Design, Posters, Arts & Crafts, Photography, Team Sales, Team Fitting, Quiz Bowl, Cattleman’s Written Test, Beef Cook-off and Livestock Judging. There were 977 awards presented to the youth of the breed for the 5-day event, in addition to the ribbons for show classes. These activities prepare our 8

shorthorn country = august 2020

youth for the next level of engagement, regardless of whether they are headed into junior high, high school, college, graduate school or into the workforce. All breeders and supporters who donated or contributed to funding this event are building the future of our country, communities and breed, and it is expensive to finance - over $225,000 to make it all happen. All the funds come from sponsors, donations and the goodwill of many of you. The sustainability of this event is very important to our future. The ASA Board has appointed a Resource Development Committee to review funding this event and possible other activities like this in the future. As a result, you will be seeing some new options to invest in our youth coming this fall. For starters, the main fundraiser with the Foundation Heifer will take place at Louisville during the North American as part of Deck the Stalls. This event will be bigger and better with more opportunities than ever. Also, some new concepts for breeders’ participation include donating a percentage of a special lot number in all the sales (both live and internet) that breeders could contribute to the youth of the breed. We are also working on designing a way to donate and/or fund donations supporting our youth using the registry. It takes a lot of funding to continue with a first-class event for the Junior program. For some who ask how important this is, a poll taken by attendees at the Impact Conference in 2015, 61% of those attending that forum were past Junior members. It is the future of our breed! Another new program, “Shorthorn Beef Locally Raised” will be launched in the coming months, promoting the availability of Shorthorn Freezer Meat from Shorthorn producers on Facebook and social media. Members who have product to sell can sign up and will be added to a map; a link to the map will be included

on promotional posts on Facebook. The goal is to connect consumers looking for locally raised beef with the Shorthorn producers. It puts Shorthorn in the consumers view and gives the producers the opportunity to build a relationship with new customers. This can have a tremendous effect on how consumers look at agriculture. The Shorthorn Breed is the Family Friendly breed. It is time to reach out to non-agriculture folks, draw them in and show them how your family farm functions. I encourage Shorthorn members to participate; it can be profitable to raise the beef and sell it directly to the consumer. It also is a wonderful opportunity to invite non-agriculture people to the farm on a Saturday morning to see how you raise the animals and care for them, plus see how your own children interact with the cattle and such. I believe over time this can become a major part of our breed’s identity. We have the right kind of cattle to fit this need and even more importantly, the right kind of people to build relationships with those who will pass the experience along to others. This can lead to greater demand and perhaps some new breeders. The positives are endless and it should create additional income for you at the same time. This can become our Branded Beef Program! =

A Series of Numbers: Carcass EPDs Welcome to the first of three articles discussing the relationship between EPDs and the data points that drive the calculations. In our Shorthorn genetic evaluation, there are 16 EPDs and selection indexes available for you to use in your breeding and selection decisions. There are some that are familiar to most breeders, like Birth Weight, Weaning Weight, and Yearling Weight. Discussing them at length would seem redundant. Last year in the January to March 2019 issues, I covered the selection indexes ($Calving Ease, $Feedlot, and $British Maternal) at length, so there’s not much need to re-hash those. Instead, I will focus on the “lesser known” EPDs. For this series, first I will highlight the suite of carcass EPDs we have available, followed by a discussion of the maternally-oriented traits in September. The series will close with some thoughts on performance data, genomics, and the relationship between them when it comes to genetic evaluation calculations. In the Shorthorn breed, there are five traits focused on carcass quality that have calculated EPDs. They include carcass weight, yield grade, ribeye area, marbling/ intramuscular fat, and fat thickness. What makes the carcass EPDs unique is that they are fueled by two different sets of data to achieve the genetic predictions. Carcass traits can be influenced by actual carcass data collected by harvesting feeder cattle, as well as the use of carcass ultrasound scanning. Carcass data from a harvested carcass has a larger influence on a sire’s EPD movement than ultrasound data, since it is an actual measurement of the traits of interest. While scanning breeding stock for carcass measurements is a valuable and accurate tool, it is an indicator of what actual quality might be. Currently, there are about 4,600 actual carcass measurements in our database, with an additional 10,600 records of carcass ultrasound data to support it. Carcass weight (CW in Digital Beef) 10

shorthorn country = august 2020

is used to measure the differences in weight of a beef carcass and is measured in pounds. There are a lot of sires in the database without any progeny carcass records. For these cattle, CW follows closely the trend of the other growth traits. The cattle that rank higher for WW and YW typically do the same for CW. Once actual carcass weight data is supplied on a sire, that information will start to influence the movement of the EPD. The yield grade of a carcass is an estimate of the percent retail yield of the four primal cuts of beef (the chuck, rib, loin and round). In layman’s terms, it measures the cutability of the carcass. The USDA scoring system for yield grade is on a 1 to 5 scale, with 1 being the highest cutability carcass. The Yield Grade EPD (YG) is expressed in terms of units of that scoring system. The lower (more negative) a YG EPD, the better progeny are expected to perform on the USDA Yield Grade scale. This trait is like Birth Weight in that the lower numbers are generally considered more desirable. The next three traits are those that are influenced by both carcass data collection, as well as ultrasound data. Ribeye area (REA) is simply the measurement of the size of the longissimus muscle between the 12th and 13th rib. It is measured in square inches, and the EPD is expressed in that same unit. Larger REA EPDs indicate progeny who will likely have larger ribeye areas when scanned or harvested. There is a trend that many high REA EPD bulls are also high growth (WW and YW) bulls, as the traits are correlated to each other. Realistically, REA is a growth trait itself. It just measures the growth of one muscle in the animal rather than the growth of the entire beast. Intramuscular fat, better known around the industry as IMF or marbling, is the measurement of how much fat is deposited within the area of the ribeye. The trait is measured on a percentage basis, with a higher percentage meaning there is more

fat deposited within that muscle. We all know about the importance of marbling when it comes to the grading quality of beef. The marbling EPD (MB) is pretty important, too! The MB EPD is expressed in terms of the percentage of IMF found in the ribeye. The higher the MB EPD, the more likely it is that progeny will have higher marbling. When studying MB’s relation to REA, it is difficult to find animals that rank in the breed’s elite for both. Typically, if one of these traits increases, the other will decrease. While you can find a few outliers to this relationship, biology makes it difficult. The final trait measured by both actual carcass data and ultrasound, fat thickness is measuring the backfat on an animal where the ribeye area measurement is taken. In our database, the EPD for backfat thickness is indicated by the FT abbreviation. The trait is measured in inches, and the EPD is expressed in that unit as well. Like the YG EPD, the lower (more negative) a FT EPD is, the less backfat we would expect to see on the progeny of that animal, both from carcass and ultrasound data. Actual carcass data on feeder cattle can be submitted to ASA for input into the database. If you have some data that has been collected but never submitted, send me an email (matt@shorthorn.org) and I will be glad to send you the template that we use to upload data. All ultrasound data on breeding stock is submitted to ASA via one of three ultrasound image processing labs. After your scan technician leaves your farm, they submit their images to one of these labs for interpretation and submission to the breed association. We then upload the data we receive from the image processing lab and provide you with a report on all the animals that you scanned. Hopefully, the dive into carcass EPDs won’t scare you off from this series. Next month, maternal traits and the data that drives their EPDs will be the focus. =

Regional Show Update Last month we put out that we would be continuing the Regional Points with the shows that were left in each region. Unfortunately, since then, almost all of the State Fairs hosting regional shows have canceled. The Show Committee had a meeting at the junior nationals in Texas and made the recommendation to suspend the regional points for this year because of all the cancellations. The ASA Board of Directors followed the recommendation of the Show Committee and as a result the Super Regional and Regional point system will be suspended for the 2020-2021 show season. With this change, we are still going to move forward with National Show Points. As, a way to give out more awards for this show season the ASA Board approved to add division winners for

our National Show Points. We will score these division winners with the same points that allocate for the National Show Female and Bull awards. It is also approved that there must be at least two National Shows during the 2020-2021 show season in order for any national awards to be presented. This does not mean that an animal must exhibit at two National Shows, just that two Nationals Shows must take place. So far, one of the National Shows have canceled, Keystone International Livestock Exposition. If any more cancel we will get these updates to the membership as best as we can. During these unprecedented times because of Covid-19, we all have to anticipate possible adjustments happening to everything we do. The resulting awards for the National Shows will be presented at the 2021 Annual

Meeting, which is the kickoff of our 150th Anniversary Celebration. Below are the points that will be used for the National Shows. 5 National Shows 1st in Class: 8 points 2nd in Class: 7 points 3rd in Class: 6 points 4th in Class: 5 points 5th in Class: 4 points Division Champion: 7 points Reserve Division Champion: 5 points Grand Champion: 11 points Reserve Grand Champion: 9 points =

Best One Yet The 2020 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference is one for the history books. We were lucky to be able to host a “normal” junior national for the members of the American Junior Shorthorn Association, all while experiencing one of the strangest years anyone has seen. Our biggest goal was to be sure the exhibitors could have one normal event this summer when they have had graduations, proms, sports and other shows canceled. We wanted to give these juniors summer to remember. I am beyond proud of the junior board and their exceptionally hard work they put in for this junior national. Each year the NJSS faces different challenges, but this year we had to work through something we hadn’t faced before. The junior board spent all year to plan a great event for the youth and this spring we weren’t sure if it was going to happen.

We had special meetings and planned for anything and every obstacle that might come our way. The junior board are the leaders of the AJSA and they truly showed that in Texas. From running to contests and interacting with the exhibitors, they made sure that this was the “best junior national yet.” We owe a big thank you to all of the people who helped accomplish this large event. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for your support in making the junior national a success. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you to the Texas Shorthorn Association and Texas Junior Shorthorn Association for your help in planning, fundraising and providing volunteers. We appreciate all that you did over the last year and a half to make this event a success. Thank you to the staff of the ASA, Shorthorn Country and all other volunteers. The hours you

give before junior national and your assistance during the week helps it run smoothly. We look forward to seeing everyone in Louisville, Kentucky, for the 2021 National Junior Shorthorn Show. There will be some changes to the junior fundraisers this year, so be sure to watch our Facebook pages for these updates. Our first change to announce is that we will not have the Leading a Legacy fundraising sale at the Maternal Legends sale in Iowa this fall. Instead, we will be having a larger fundraiser during the North American International Livestock Exposition in November. If you are interested in donating to this fundraiser contact shelby@shorthorn.org, and more details will be coming very soon! =

Thank You

Texas Shorthorn Association, Texas Junior Shorthorn Association and Texas Junior National Committee for all your help with the 2020 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference! We couldn’t have done it without you.

We appreciate you!

2020 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference by Lexi Wetzel

As we finished up the week at Junior Nationals, which was nothing short of amazing, I couldn’t be more thankful to be part of this breed. When the going got tough, we got tougher and worked harder. The world threw so many unknowns at us but the AJSA, ASA and everyone else that played a part in making the event possible, wasn’t going to let that stand in the way of having one of the best Junior Nationals yet. Not only did juniors get to be in the show ring again, some for the first time since March, but they got to take part in all of the contests and events that are typically held. It was as if we got to experience something close to “normal” again. Getting to see all the juniors and their families again was heartwarming to

22

shorthorn country = august 2020

be a part of. Only a few times in life do you ever get to be part of something super special and I will definitely count this as one of those times. A heartfelt thank you goes out to the AJSA & ASA staff, the ASA Board of Directors, the Texas Shorthorn Association and their members, and the rest of the crew that made this Junior Nationals fun, well organized and made it happen. Also thank you to all of the breeders, donors, and supporters, whose generous contributions throughout the year made it possible to fund the Junior National and all of the amazing prizes distributed. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough. As president of the AJSA, it is my pleasure to serve the breed and the youth

of this industry for the next year. I’m sure there will be additional challenges we face, but with a great Junior Board, amazing AJSA & ASA staff, and all of our generous donors and supporters, we will meet these challenges with a combination of tradition, determination and innovation for the future of our industry. Last but not least, I look forward to seeing everyone again at the 2021 Junior Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky. We are so grateful to be surround by amazing juniors and families that make everything we do worth it. =

Mentor/Apprentice & The Golden Comb by Kendall Harshman

The Golden Comb.

Mentor/Apprentice.

Junior Nationals is one of the best weeks out of the whole year for some kids, especially the younger junior members. The Mentor/Apprentice program was created to allow younger junior members to meet new friends and eliminate any nerves they may have about this exciting week. During the week, junior members were paired up for this program to complete different tasks together, and to also sell keychains to 48

help fundraise for Junior Nationals next year. The juniors who completed every task were then put into a drawing for The Golden Comb and was announced the night of the awards ceremony. The team who sold the most key chains this year and came out on top were Matthew Burns and Kolton Powell. The other winners for the mentor/ apprentice program were Molly Kreutzer and Anna Phelps, Ally Clements and

Back Row L to R: Alexis Wetzel; Kylie Harlan; Bill Rasor; Nancy Grathwohl Heter; Lane VanderWal; Front Row L to R: Cameron Catrett; Emily Bollum; Colton Hulsey; Miller Smith, Paige Wickard. Not Pictured: Emily Fry; Marlena Long.

Each year, the Shorthorn Foundation and American Shorthorn Association (ASA) sponsor several scholarships for American Junior Shorthorn Association (AJSA) members. The Shorthorn Foundation and ASA take great pride in supporting AJSA members in their educational endeavors as they know these junior members are the future of this breed. The Foundation, along with families, awarded 11 scholarships to very deserving members. Jared and Justin Bedwell Memorial Scholarship: This is a $1,000 scholarship sponsored by the Bedwell family of Isabella, Oklahoma, in partnership with the American Shorthorn Association. This scholarship is awarded to a high school senior, college freshman, or sophomore. Recipients are chosen based on their involvement, GPA, future goals, and career plans within the agricultural industry. This scholarship was created to honor the Bedwell brothers who were both active AJSA members. This year’s recipient is Gabriella Leone. Gabriella Leone is the daughter of Rick and Trish Leone. She is from Fowler, Colorado, and

attends Kansas State University where she studies animal science with a focus on bioengineering and technology. “The cattle industry has always been an important factor in my life,” says Leone. “I will never, nor could I ever leave the agricultural industry. Everything I am and everything I have is what I worked for and earned through ag. My biggest goal in life is to give and be what others were for me in the giant Shorthorn family and cattle industry.” Lyle and Katharyn Dewitt Memorial Scholarship: This scholarship was established in memory of Lyle and Kathryn Dewitt for their contributions to the Shorthorn Breed. This $1,000 award is sponsored by the American Shorthorn Foundation. It is awarded to a high school senior or college freshman and recipients are chosen based on their grades, Shorthorn involvement, need, and participation in activities outside the barn. This year’s recipient is Lane VanderWal. Lane VanderWal is the son of Kevin and Kari VanderWal.

experience as a young man. I have learned many lessons from that show in particular and from showing cattle in general,” says VanderWal. Jesse M. and Jennie S. Duckett Memorial Scholarship: The Jesse M. and Jennie S. Duckett Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 award for a high school senior or college freshman. Recipients are chosen based on their involvement in agriculture, educational background, ACT score, and high school or college GPA. This year’s recipient is Emily Fry. Emily Fry is the daughter of Tim and Cory Fry. She is from Danville, Indiana, and attends Black Hawk College East where she is studying animal agribusiness. Fry says, “I want to make an impact in the beef industry to help maximize gains for the market side of the industry to feed our growing population and for the production side, provide meaningful data for producers, while sharing my knowledge to help reduce genetic defect occurrences and retain prominent genetics long-term.” Mike Dugdale Memorial Scholarship: The Shorthorn breed lost one of its longtime members in 2006. Michael Dugdale was very involved in the Shorthorn breed and was a part of the first importation of Irish Shorthorns in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Within the Nebraska and Iowa Shorthorn Associations, Dugdale served and held positions in both organizations. He was elected to the American Shorthorn Association board of directors in the early 80’s. Dugdale attended hundreds of Shorthorn sales throughout his years as a manager, heard consultant, and order buyer. He also purchased an untold number of Shorthorn cattle. This scholarship awarded is given to a collegiate upperclassman who is an active AJSA member with a sincere interest in bettering the beef cattle industry after college. The recipient of this $1,000 award is Kylie Harlan. Kylie Harlan is the daughter of Kerry and E.V. Harlan. She is from Bells, Texas and is attending Texas Tech University where she studies Agricultural Communications. “I have found a passion in advocating for the agricultural industry and I


would like to do so at a state or national level,” says Harlan. “If I do not become a lobbyist, I would like to work in communications for an agriculturally related company. I love the agriculture industry and plan to hold a career in the industry – no matter what sector it may be in.” Charles B. “Chuck” Leemon Memorial Scholarship: The Charles B. “Chuck” Leemon Memorial Scholarship is a $2,500 award that is sponsored by the Leemon family along with the cooperation of the Shorthorn Foundation. One college student is selected for this award based on their GPA, character references, involvement, and future goals and career plans in agriculture. This year’s recipient is Cameron Catrett. Cameron Catrett is the daughter of Perry and Ashley Catrett. She is from Luverne, Alabama, and attends Oklahoma State University where she is studying Food Science and Animal Science. “I anticipate my enjoyment for the Shorthorn breed to continue to grow. I plan to keep the cycle of support going by being one of the Shorthorn breeders who invests in fellow breeders and youth, just as others have done for me,” says Catrett. Don Longley Memorial Scholarships: As a past publisher of the Shorthorn World magazine, Don Longley followed in his father’s footsteps and continued the empire of the Shorthorn Magazine. With more than 50 years of father-son work towards the magazine and breed, the Shorthorn World was never the same after the Longley era. He brought Shorthorn breeders the most accurate and up to date information by insisting his staff attend every Shorthorn show, sale, and conference possible. His goal was to publish a journalistically superior book where he worked tirelessly to promote the breed. The scholarship is sponsored by the Shorthorn Foundation and awarded to high school seniors and college freshman. Four $1,000 awards and given to individuals based on their Shorthorn involvement, grades, need, and participation in other activities. This year’s recipients are Colton Hulsey, Marlena Long, Miller Smith, and Paige Wickard. Colton Hulsey is the son of Brian and Arla Hulsey. He is from Red Oak, Oklahoma, and plans to attend Eastern Oklahoma State College to study Agribusiness. “I plan to obtain a degree in agribusiness.

consultant,” says Hulsey. Marlena Long is the daughter of Greg and Laura Long. She is from Paris, Missouri, and will be attending the University of Missouri –Kansas City in the Accelerated Medical School Program. “While I am passionate about becoming a doctor and I know I want to make sure I can use my skills to make a difference in the health field, I truly hope to live in the country, raise livestock, and someday give my kids the opportunity to learn life lessons in a barn,” says Long. Miller Smith is from Pendleton, Indiana. He is the son of Neal and Jennifer Smith and will be attending Purdue University to study Animal Science. “A future goal of mine is to develop a livestock feed that is less expensive, but more nutritious. This is a goal of mine because I want others to have the same experiences, I have had but for less of a price tag. Along the same lines, I wish to travel to less fortunate countries to share my knowledge,” says Smith. Paige Wickard is the daughter of David and Leslie Wickard. She is from Wilkinson, Indiana, and plans to attend Anderson University to study Nursing. “Helping others has always been something that I have enjoyed doing through many community service activities. Both my mother and grandmother are nurses and I can only aspire to be as great as they are one day,” says Wickard. John Miller Scholarship: This scholarship is awarded to an individual who is a collegiate upperclassman, including trade schools, and is an active AJSA member. The recipient should have an interest in making Shorthorns more viable in the commercial cattle industry. This year’s recipient of the $2,500 award is Alexis Wetzel. Alexis Wetzel is the daughter of Mike and Lisa Wetzel.

State Cook-Off by Gabriella Leone

Thursday is always one of my favorite days during the week of junior nationals for many reasons. The State Cook-Off is sure one of them and let me tell you what, the competition showed up this year and it tasted oh so good! From catfish and sweat tea to chips and salsa, I think I can speak for all of us there and say it was a huge success! During that time, families and friends relaxed and socialized while trying all of the yummy treats. Another one of my favorite events from Thursday afternoon, the cornhole tournament. It was a HUGE success this year attracting 42 teams and even more fans cheating from the side lines. Mike Wetzel and Cory Bollum were the victorious team who generously donated

Senior Prepared Speech Winner - Murray Perkins Again this year, the Champion Senior in the Prepared Speech Contest, presented their speech during the awards banquet Friday night. Below is a copy of Murray Perkins’ winning speech. Have you ever heard of COVID-19? Yea, that was a dumb question. We all know it’s the highly infectious virus that shut down our country and has caused every American to question any information they have been told over the past four months. There is no doubt that there was a lot uncertainty that surrounded the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the positive environmental changes we have seen, demand for beef products as seen by empty grocery store shelves, and the fact that the Department of Homeland Security deemed agriculture an essential business, has allowed the agriculture industry as a whole to debunk some myths that have long been falsely associated with our industry. We all know the feeling of having the finger pointed at us when it isn’t deserved. Whether it’s getting the blame for forgetting to turn the water off at the barn or taking the blame for your sibling who missed curfew—we all know the feeling. Similarly, the agriculture, and specifically livestock industries, have received more than their fair share of blame and shame. The media and celebrities have shared false headlines that the livestock industry is a leading factor in Greenhouse Gas emissions. But that is NOT the case. According to the BEEF Is What’s for Dinner website, raising cattle accounts for only two percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, while transportation creates an estimated 26% in the United States. Furthermore, today’s farmers and ranchers produce the same amount of beef with 33% fewer cattle, as compared to 1977. How’d they do it, you ask? 1) Better Animal Health and Welfare, 2) Better Animal Nutrition, and 3) Better Animal Genetics. Improved efficiency and animal well-being mean a 16% lower carbon footprint and fewer natural resources used for every pound of beef produced. Shorthorn cattle are also no stranger to efficiency and sustainability. According to the 2017 American Shorthorn Association & University of Illinois Sire Test Performance Review, the average yield grade for the set of cattle used for research was 2.7 which is better than the industry average, and the Average Daily Gain totaled 3.87. This means more beef was garnered from Shorthorn sired calves than those 56

shorthorn country = august 2020

of other breeds in the typical feedlot. It also means more beef from fewer head of cattle at a faster rate—that’s less time on the feed bill releasing emission. Celebrities have also made claims that removing beef from your diet can lead to weight loss and helping the environment. You know, there’s Keto, low carb, the Jenny Craig diet, and even adopting the “Meatless Monday” trend. But, the fact of the matter is that if every one of the more than 300 million people living in the United States took part in this one meatless day a week, the result would still be a less than five-tenths percent drop in the United States carbon footprint. Plus, as a beef producer and consumer myself, I know that a threeounce serving of beef is only 180 calories and serves as an incredible source for the Zinc, Iron, and protein our bodies need. I commend those looking for ways to cut calories and shrink our carbon footprint, but meat animals are NOT to blame. If there is a silver lining to be found in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is that cattle producers saw their product at an all time high-demand. Despite the fallacies surrounding livestock production and meat-eating habits so commonly portrayed, the empty meat counters indicated that American’s still view beef products as a viable source of protein. Furthermore, it reaffirmed why we, as beef producers, continue our way of life. Everyone in our country was forced to stop dead in their tracks this Spring. Businesses closed their doors, others were left to work from home, and the amount of travel took a downward spiral. But, the Department of Homeland Security deemed agriculture an essential business and production agriculture never stopped. Seed was planted, fertilizer was spread, cows were bred, and new calves hit the ground just like any other Spring. Despite farmers being at the peak of one of the many “busy seasons,” images circulated social media showcasing the visible differences in city skylines before and after the quarantine was put in place. The dark, smoggy sky in larger cities was replaced by bluer, clearer skies. This was likely the first time Los Angeles saw empty highways and clear skies in quite some time. Are the two mutually exclusive? Obviously not—I can assure you that the cattle population in Los Angeles, California is not to blame for their historical smog hazed skyline. So, how do you explain to the consumer the sustainability in the beef industry and cattle impact on the

environment? Well, the proof is in the pudding—not only from what we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic but far beyond that as well. From 2005 to 2011, improvements in crop yields, machinery technology, irrigation techniques, fertilizer management, nutrition and animal performance have resulted in lowering the environmental footprint of raising beef and have greatly improved the overall level of farm sustainability. Increased adoption of Beef Quality Assurance protocols and other industry-led animal handling programs have improved our social sustainability. As greater efficiencies in crop production and animal handling become available, on-farm sustainability will continue to improve. It is important to remember that sustainability is not a destination. It is a continuous journey being carried out by each generation of farmers and ranchers responsible for raising and supplying beef across the world. To the beef community, sustainability compromises much more than environmental considerations. Today, a sustainable food supply balances efficient production with environmental, social, and economic impacts. There might have been uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but if I am certain about anything it is that raising beef responsibly is a priority for farmers and ranchers. And, I am certain that beef is what’s for dinner! = Sources Beef It’s What’s for Dinner-- https://www. beefitswhatsfordinner.com/raising-beef/beef-in-asustainable-diet American Shorthorn Association-- https://shorthorn. org/research-data/

Sock Drive by Abigail Sartin

For the 4th year in a row, the American Junior Shorthorn Association has partnered with an organization in the state hosting Junior Nationals to provide socks to those in need. This year, AJSA partnered with Love & Care Ministries in Abilene, Texas. Love & Care first began in January of 1995 serving five meals from the back of a pickup truck. Today, the ministry has continued to grow and seeks to serve not only on the streets, but in a small food pantry that was opened in September of 1997. AJSA members from 24 states came together to donate 4,633 socks! To determine which state provided the

most socks, the socks are separated into states and then divided by the number of exhibitors from that particular state to determine a percentage per exhibitor. The winning state this year was Mississippi with 132 pairs per exhibitor and a total of 396 pairs. Texas, however, was the state who donated the most with 844 pairs of socks. The AJSA thanks everyone for their generous donations! =

Arts & Crafts by Whitney Miller

The Arts and Crafts contest is very competitive no matter what age division and the crafts continue to get better every year. The creativity each junior who participates brings to the table is beyond impressive. This gives the juniors a chance to show their talents and creativity outside of the show ring. The judges definitely have tough decisions to make when it comes to selecting the Top 5. The juniors have the option to donate their crafts if they are selected into the top five to the AJSA Junior Board fundraisers that help raise money for Junior Nationals each year. As junior board members, we appreciate you donating your crafts to help make Junior Nationals a success.

What’s an extra calf worth to your operation? Research conducted by Colorado State University proves that Shorthorn-Angus cows are more likely to produce one extra calf in their lifetime. These females add staying power, remain in the herd longer, produce to their optimal potential — and bring greater value to your bottom line. Shorthorns are the crossbreeding solution.

Photography by Allyssa Obrecht

Many juniors rose to the challenge of snapping the best Shorthorn picture and entries sure ran deep! Entries were sent in to the AJSA prior to Junior Nationals to be judged in advance by a panel of judges. The junior’s work was showcased on screens around the coliseum throughout the week of Junior Nationals. Their pictures consisted of candid shots and scenic pasture views that featured a Shorthorn. The intermediate and senior digitally enhanced photography contest consisted of pictures that featured any aspect of agriculture. Judges selected the best agriculture picture from photos that have been enhanced or altered. Congratulations to all of the photography contest winners! Don’t forget to be snapping more pictures to enter in the 2021 Junior Nationals Photography Contest.

We all love beef, whether it be in our pastures or on our plates! The beef cookoff contest was focused on the tri-tip this year with a western theme for the skits and presentations to go along with the Jr. Nationals theme, Shorthorns and Spurs. All of the states that participated (some with multiple teams) brought a whole new level of competition with their decorations and costumes this year. Piper Cates even managed to grow a thick mustache! I thoroughly enjoyed watching each team compete, but at the end of the day the judges named a top five. I am already excited to select the cut for next year’s contest and we will announce it as soon as it is decided! Until then, take advantage of the amazing recipes posted on the AJSA website and Facebook page and try these amazing tritip steaks at home!

Quiz Bowl

by Kendall Nelson Beep..... Correct! That was the sound that filled the room at the Junior National Quiz Bowl event! There were several teams that participated, and the competition was steady all the way through. We were very fortunate to have our Junior National this year amongst all of the chaos going on in our world. As I write this brief write up about a contest that tests people’s knowledge, I can’t help but reflect on a country music legend that passed today, Charlie Daniels. “He said, it’s not the miles you can travel, but the progress you can accomplish that makes a day successful. LETS ALL MAKE THE DAY COUNT”! Every exhibitor traveled miles, some hundreds of miles and others, thousands of miles. But the common goal between all of us, was that we are FIRED UP

about an opportunity to exhibit, grow, and represent a breed that means a lot to all of us! Like Charlie said to make a day count, I can think back to everyday in Texas and say we all made our days count! The quiz bowl was a success as usual due to the participation of the teams. I would like to thank everyone for coming to a great show and for being so optimistic and having a good time together! Quiz Bowl Winners: 1.

Livestock Judging by Lexi Wetzel

Livestock Judging Winners.

I think we can all agree evaluating livestock represents a large part of our industry. It also helps youth evaluate and understand the reasons for picking one animal over another. This in turn helps them as they are able to evaluate cattle in their herd or on sales and enables them to make better choices. The contestants were able to show they know how it is done through placing classes and answering questions.

A big thank you to Ryan Rathmann of Texas Tech University for coming in and assisting with the contest. He was willing to come help pick out classes, officiate the contest, and made the scoring process easier by scanning the scantrons used. Prospector I: 1. Keagan Steck, Minn. 2. Charlee Lane, Okla. 3.

Lassie Tea & Lassie 101 by Desirae Logsdon

Lassie Tea Participants.

During this time of social distancing and changes to our daily lives, Shorthorn Lassie enthusiasts came together in Abilene, Texas, where we gathered for the annual Lassie Tea on the morning of June 25. Around 20 young girls and state queens representing several states were in attendance. Each girl that attended received a sash to decorate, a tiara, a cookie, along with and a teacup and saucer to take home with them. All the State Queens and Princess got a goodie bag that had a travel size hair spray, teasing comb, and chapstick to take with them as they are some the essentials of being a Lassie Queen. After, the girls got to partake in some fun activities! These included coloring pages, puzzles, games, crafts, and dressing up for the photo booth. We also painted “kindness rocks” that we put

64

shorthorn country = august 2020

inspirational and encouraging images and phrases on. Then, we hide these “kindness rocks” around the fairgrounds for others to find and either take home with them to different states. After all, with everything going on in the world we wanted to spread some kindness! During this fun filled hour, Faye captured the moments of the girls enjoying the games and most of all dressing up for the photo booth. The room was definitely filled full of laughter! I am so grateful for the Queens and Princess that attended and helped with all the games, crafts, and puzzles. It was great to see so many young girls, parents, and supporters make the Lassie Tea a success this year. None of it would have been possible without the Minnesota Lassie Association, Texas

Lassie Association, and the Ohio Lassie Association, your help and support is what made this year’s Lassie Tea such a success. After the Lassie Tea, we changed gears and held the Lassie 101. This event allows State Queens and Princesses to interact with members of the National Shorthorn Lassie Association. I was able to share my experiences and responsibilities of a Lassie Queen. We also talked about the proper way to lead in classes, handing out awards, and gave tips on make-up and hair, along with other advice on being a Lassie. I also reiterated that just because you show cattle doesn’t mean you can’t be a Lassie and still be active at Junior Nationals. Lassie 101 also helps build the relationships among the Queens and the Princess before the shows in the days following. This is also the time where questions regarding the National Lassie Queen Contest are answered. I consider it a great honor to serve as the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen and highly suggest that any and all State Queens run to be a National Shorthorn Lassie, it is an experience that you will never regret! I would like to thank again the Minnesota Lassie Association for helping sponsor the Lassie Tea and Lassie 101, along with the Texas Lassie Association and the help they did with putting on the event. Laurn and Krista Bihl from the Ohio Lassie Association for everything they did on helping put together all the activities. In addition, thank you to all the individuals that helped set up, clean up, and everyone that made this a great experience for these young ladies. =


High Point Individuals by Abigail Sartin

During their time at NJSS, junior members are able to compete in many contests to showcase their skills. This year presented some unexpected challenges for many breed associations and their junior shows, but fortunately the AJSA was able to move forward with all of their usual contests! As the communications intern, I was in charge of photographing and capturing moments for the contests. I was blown away by the talent and involvement of the AJSA’s youth and commend you all. Individuals participating in contests can gain points towards the High Point Individual Award which is based on the number of contests a junior participates in as well as how they placed in those contests. Points are totaled after all contests are over and the top 5 individuals in each division are recognized. The list of these individuals can be found below: Prospector I: 1. Kolten Greenhorn, Ohio 2.

Shorthorn Sidekicks by Cassidy Catrett

The Shorthorn Sidekicks program was developed to get those too young to compete in the show and contests involved in the fun that is the National Junior Shorthorn Show and Youth Conference and get them excited about competing one day.

This year, Sidekicks had the opportunity to play games with other youth and complete a scavenger hunt with older members within the breed. Our Sidekicks were able to make new friends and meet new people that they hope to see next year. =

Red Coat Award by Kendall Harshman

One of highest honors of the week at Junior Nationals is for a Prospector to receive the Red Coat Award. The winner of this award is selected by the Junior Board. The junior member who wins this award goes above and beyond the expectations by participating in contests and being actively involved all week. These individuals also showcase great examples of leadership, hard work and team work. This years Red Coat Award

was given to Sawyer Hayslip from Ohio. She was a busy young lady the week of Junior Nationals competing in multiple competitions and shows. You will see in the contest results some of her other results. Sawyer was the Fifth Overall High Point Prospector I. She is an excellent example of taking every opportunity and running with it. Keep up the good work Sawyer, and congratulations! = Red Coat Award Winner.

State Herdsmanship by Whitney Miller

The purpose of the Herdsmanship contest is to encourage teamwork and cooperation among the states and juniors. The State Herdsmanship contest is a combination of the best decorated stalls, cleanliness, promotion of association/state, and the cooperation they show together as a state.

Interns Views on NJSS Abigail Getting to be a part of NJSS this year was a memory I will never forget. While I certainly enjoyed getting to spend 10 days in Texas, eating countless amounts of Whataburger, and seeing my favorite band in concert, I think getting to capture special moments for the youth exhibitors of the Shorthorn breed was the icing on the cake. I know that this has been a crazy year for us all, but I can’t explain how awesome it was to get to actually be at a livestock show with a sense of “normalcy” while we were in Abilene. I really enjoyed being a fly on the wall for all of the contests and shows during the week. I was absolutely blown away with the talent and passion of the junior Shorthorn exhibitors. Although I loved being able to take photos and create memories for those at Junior Nationals, I think my favorite part of the event was seeing just how close knit and family oriented the Shorthorn breed is. Thank you all for a great week of Shorthorns & Spurs! Cassidy As someone who grew up attending Shorthorn Junior Nationals, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what all went

into making the NJSS happen. However, I was wrong. As the youth activities intern, I was the one who had the chance to organize contests, prepare scripts, and post results. I never realized how much work was done behind the scenes to ensure that contests and check-in ran smoothly, but those who are responsible for that deserve more appreciation than they get. I have a new-found respect for those who work tirelessly to make the shows and contests happen. Although I felt like I knew a lot of exhibitors as we entered the week, being able to meet and interact with almost every exhibitor was a real treat and I hope everyone enjoyed being in Abilene as much as I did. I have always been passionate about the Shorthorn breed and this internship has served to strengthen my passion for it and the wonderful people who make this breed great. Kendall I’m very sad to see Junior Nationals come and go. I have attended many Junior Nationals and was not sure what to expect while working the National Junior Shorthorn Show. The Shorthorn breed, families and juniors did not disappoint after spending 10 days in Abilene. This

Junior Nationals may honestly be my favorite one I have attended. I had a great time finally putting names to faces after handling all of the entries for the show. I had a fun time just lending a helping hand when I could. Congratulations to everyone who attended 2020 NJSS in Abilene, Texas. I wish everyone has a good rest of the summer, and hopefully be able to get out and show this fall. Best of luck! =

Key Chain Toss by Cassidy Catrett

As a part of their daily tasks, Junior Mentors and Apprentices team up to sell an item to raise funds for Junior Nationals the next year. Sullivan Supply and the American Junior Shorthorn Association (AJSA) donate a chute for those who purchase the item to have a chance to win. This year, Mentors and Apprentices were tasked with selling key chains in an effort to raise money for the 2021 National Junior Shorthorn Show and

Youth Conference. Between the end of the show and the beginning of the banquet on Friday evening, those individuals who purchased a key chain lined up to try their hand at winning a chute valued at over $800. Texas shaped key chains were tossed into a feed pan and winners from each round continued to toss their key chain until we could declare a winner. Congratulations to Hunter Phelps, this year’s skilled winner! We hope you enjoy your new chute. =
