It made me proud to be part of this extravaganza and to see the fraternity in this “Family Friendly Breed”. The excitement from arrival to conclusion is like nothing else we will experience in the livestock industry. Over 517 head of cattle were exhibited by more than 360 exhibitors. The quality of the junior exhibitors and cattle continue to be Showmanship Ring 1 most impressive.

This event happens because a large number of people and Junior Board members are working in “National Shorthorn Sire Test Field Day” sync toward the same goals.

Join Us for the National Shorthorn Sire Test Field Day After a week in Wisconsin for the National Junior Shorthorn Show, I hit the road from Madison to Urbana, IL to tour the University of Illinois Beef Farm in preparation for the upcoming National Shorthorn Sire Test Field Day. The Field Day is to be held August 25 on the University of Illinois campus and will include a morning of educational presentations, lunch, and wrap up in the early afternoon with a tour of the Beef Farm, highlighted by seeing the ASA Sire Test calves on feed. I was able to see the cattle on July 2, and thanks to UI graduate students Parker Henley and Jack Oattes, was able to get some new information on the performance of these calves. The set up at the UI Beef Farm is quite unique. All cattle are being fed under roof on slatted concrete with matted floors for cushion and comfort of the cattle. When the calves came into the barn after weaning, they were separated by sex and weight. There are five pens each for heifers and steers, with 12-16 head per pen. Each pen is equipped with 2 GrowSafe feed bunks, as well as a GrowSafe water intake system. Each pen has several sires

represented. The cattle were weighed on June 19. The heifer calves averaged 733 lb, while their steer mates averaged 792 lb. Even during the early summer months, gains have been strong, with some calves averaging over 4 lb/day since going onto the feed trial. Currently, the plan is to go to harvest with these cattle in early November. The calves have developed really nicely since weaning. I was impressed with the growth of the set since they came to campus, as well as the condition they are in and their ability to all shed their winter coats. They are a high-quality set of Shorthorn feeder calves that demonstrate what Shorthorn genetics are capable of doing in a real-world setting. I am pumped to continue collecting data on these cattle, including GrowSafe intake data and carcass data in the near future. We will start the morning in the Animal Sciences Laboratory Room 131 on campus (1207 W Gregory Dr. Urbana, IL 61801) before heading to the Beef Farm after lunch (4900 S Race St.). The morning program we have put together is full of speakers that will be

Matt director of Woolfolk performance programs

both interesting and informative. Dr. Dan Shike and Dr. Josh McCann from the UI Animal Science department will be joining us on the program. Dr. Shike will present more information about the Sire Test, while Dr. McCann will discuss some of the research being conducted at the university and its relevance to producers. UI Extension Educator Travis Meteer will be speaking on early weaning strategies. To round out the slate of speakers, I will discuss how programs like the ASA Sire Test can help us continue to improve the Shorthorn breed. I hope you are able to join us on Saturday August 25 for the National Shorthorn Sire Test Field Day. I think you will be impressed with the quality of the educational program, as well as the facilities and the cattle at the UI Beef Farm. Dr. Shike and all the others at the University of Illinois have been very accommodating and enjoyable to work with on this project. If you are planning to join us for the event, I ask that you RSVP so we can have a good count for lunch. You can do so by emailing me at matt@shorthorn.org or calling the office at 816-599-7777. =

have as many people in their association but you would never have known by all the help they were able to provide. They went above and beyond to make sure we had the help we needed in trailer move-in and unloading, bedding movein, contests, and more! We couldn’t have done it without their help. Thank you to the rest of the staff at ASA and Shorthorn Country. We are lucky to have such a great team that works together to make ASA and our events possible.

2018 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference by Jake Nikkel

Juniors of the Shorthorn breed from across America and one junior from Australia, made their way to Madison, Wisconsin, to participate in the 50th National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference. An entertaining hypnotist welcomed all the juniors “Under the Big Top� and left exhibitors in a daze, and excited for the upcoming weeks activities. Juniors put their skills

to the test by participating in several contests. Whether they decided to take part in livestock judging, showmanship, cook off, speech, or quiz bowl they gave each contest their all. Four board members passed along their red jackets to the newly elected directors. Thank you, Zach Fanning, Kaila Williams, Damin Hadorn-Papke and Megan Dragstrem for giving back

countless hours of hard work to the junior association and being a role model to the next generation. Thank you to the Wisconsin Junior Shorthorn Association and volunteers for numerous hours they put in this event to make sure it ran smoothly. Mark your calendars to join us in Lebanon, Tennessee, June 23 - 30, 2019! =

Mentor/Apprentice & The Golden Comb by Anna Miller

Mentor/Apprentice. The Golden Comb. Junior Nationals is the highlight of many junior members’ summer, but for younger members, it can seem intimidating. The Mentor/Apprentice program is sponsored by Fusion Cattle Company and was created to help make younger members feel comfortable throughout the week. Prospector members, aged five to nine, have the opportunity to be paired with

an older mentor during week. The pairs participate in several fun learning activities throughout the week that allow each of them to get to know one another, practice their livestock judging skills and meet new friends. Pairs are also tasked with selling fun hats as a fundraiser for next year’s junior nationals. This year, there was a tie between the pairs that raised the most money by selling the most

hats. Bradyn Powell and Logan Test, and Charlie Sutherland and Keegan Bennett came out on top for the high sellers. Following the end of the week, each member who completed the program was entered in a drawing to receive the coveted Golden Comb award. This year’s recipients of the Golden Comb award were - Aidan Raab and Wyatt Osborn.

This year, 11 deserving junior members were awarded collegiate financial support from the generosity of the Foundation and the families listed below. Jared and Justin Bedwell Memorial Scholarship: The $1,000 Jared & Justin Bedwell Memorial Scholarship is sponsored by the Bedwell Family of Isabella, Okla., in partnership with the American Shorthorn Foundation.

I am beyond grateful I get to spend so much time doing what I love and wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.” Mike Dugdale Memorial Scholarship: In 2006, the Shorthorn breed lost one of its long-time members: Michael Dugdale. Dugdale was involved in the first importation of Irish Shorthorns in the late ’70s and early ’80s. He served in both the Nebraska and Iowa Shorthorn Associations, holding positions in each. In the early ’80s he was elected to the American Shorthorn Association board of directors. In his history of being a manager, herd consultant and order buyer, Dugdale attended hundreds of Shorthorn sales throughout North America while purchasing untold numbers of Shorthorn cattle. The $1,000 Dugdale Scholarship was awarded to a collegiate upperclassman who is an active AJSA member with a sincere interest in bettering the beef cattle industry after college. This year’s recipient was Tejlor Strope. Strope is the 19-year-old daughter of Boyd and MaLaine Strope of O’Neill, Neb. She is currently attending the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and studying agricultural education. Strope plans to become an agricultural educator as well as remain involved in the Shorthorn industry. “My goal is to promote agriculture and rural communities in such a way


that it is a cool, interesting and an important part of a student’s life now and in the future,” Strope said. “The best opportunity for education happens at home. The students I reach will educate their children about the importance of agriculture and rural communities and the opportunities both have to offer.” Charles B. “Chuck” Leemon Memorial Scholarship: The $2,500 Charles B. “Chuck” Leemon Memorial Scholarship is sponsored by the family of Chuck Leemon in cooperation with the Shorthorn Foundation.

Prochaska plans to work in financing or an agriculturally related business in Oklahoma and also stay involved in the cattle industry. “My goal is to follow in my father’s footsteps and work as a banker within the agricultural industry,” Prochaska said. “It is my belief there is a need in rural America to provide a sustainable and dependable source of financing within the agricultural industry. Don Longley Memorial Scholarship: Don Longley was a past publisher of the Shorthorn World magazine. He followed his father’s footsteps and continued the empire of the Shorthorn magazine, insisting his staff attend every Shorthorn show, sale and conference possible in order to bring Shorthorn breeders the most accurate and expansive information of the time. He worked effortlessly to promote the breed and his greatest delight was to publish a journalistically superior book. The Shorthorn World was never the same after the Longley era, with more than 50 years of father-and-son work towards the magazine and breed. Each year, four $1,000 Longley Memorial Scholarships are awarded. The scholarships are sponsored by the Shorthorn Foundation and awarded to high school seniors or college freshmen based upon Shorthorn involvement, grades, need, and participation in other activities. Four recipients were selected for this year’s scholarship: Riley Sleichter, Cameron Catrett, Cade Goldsmith and Grace Clark. Riley Sleichter is the 18-year-old son of Jeff and Meredith Sleichter of Abilene, Kan. He is currently attending Kansas State University and studying biological systems engineering. “In the agricultural industry, people care about each other and have passion

for what they do,” Sleichter said. “I could never be thankful enough for growing up in agriculture, and thus far in my life it has taught me hard work, values and a lot about life.” Cameron Catrett is the 18-year-old daughter of Perry and Ashley Catrett of Luverne, Ala. She will be attending Oklahoma State University to study food science with a pre-vet option. Catrett plans to become a veterinarian. “I cannot remember a time in my life that I did not want to be a veterinarian,” Catrett said. “My involvement on the family farm and in other agricultural pursuits over the years has taught me the importance of food safety, disease control and research.” Cade Goldsmith is the 18-year-old son of Bryant and Amy Goldsmith of Brashear, Texas. He will be attending Paris Junior College for welding. Goldsmith plans to become a mobile welder and have his own cattle operation. “My grandfather gave me some great memories in his shop learning basic welding, but he also showed me a love for a field I didn’t know I had,” Goldsmith said. “This also showed me how I hope to spend the rest of my life doing jobs that I really love, as well as working for different ranches and meeting new cattlemen.” Grace Clark is the 19-year-old daughter of Roger and Melissa Clark of Kenney, Ill. She will be attending Illinois State University to study either agricultural communications or agricultural business. Clark would like to advocate within the agricultural industry through journalism. “I would also love nothing more than to remain active within my community, students, and local producers as well,” Clark said. “I truly enjoy being around people, learning from their experiences, and making a difference. If I could combine all of those aspects into a career, that would be a dream come true!” John Miller Scholarship: The $2,500 John Miller Scholarship is awarded to a collegiate upperclassman, including trade schools, who is an active AJSA member with an emphasis to be placed on the recipient having some interest in making Shorthorns more viable in the commercial cattle industry.

She currently attends the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, to study agricultural education.

Scholarship: The $1,000 Jack Ragsdale Scholarship is awarded to a high school senior or college freshman who is an active AJSA member with a sincere interest in learning how to evaluate livestock and appreciates the purebred livestock industry. The recipient of this award exemplifies the qualities of Ragsdale, who is also known as “Mr. Shorthorn” by many breeders. Hailing originally from Indiana, he has been active in the Shorthorn business his entire life. Ragsdale was on the Purdue University Intercollegiate Livestock Judging Team and was the High Point Individual at the International Livestock Judging Contest in Chicago in 1948, holding the record high score until 1961. After judging, Ragsdale began his servitude at the American Shorthorn Association in 1965, where he began a 12-year term on the Board of Directors, eventually being named president. Ragsdale was instrumental in the inception of the North American International Livestock Exposition and also implemented the first Shorthorn Youth Conference in 1968, which was the start to the American Junior Shorthorn Association. Ragsdale’s portrait is hung in the Purdue University Livestock Hall of Fame in Indiana, and also has been inducted into the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Club. This year’s recipient of the Ragsdale scholarship is Alexis Wetzel. Wetzel is the 19-year-old daughter of Mike and Lisa Wetzel of Faribault, Minn. She is currently attending South Dakota State University and is studying animal science with minors in agriculture business and communication studies. Wetzel plans to find a career within the agricultural industry. “One of my favorite things about Shorthorn production is getting to do it as a family,” Wetzel said. “When one of us excels in the show ring at a show, we are all able to take pride in that achievement knowing each and every one of us played an important role.” Outstanding Junior Board Member: The Outstanding Junior Board Member Scholarship was created to honor a junior board member who has gone above and beyond in their service to the American Junior Shorthorn Association during their time in office. This recipient has been selected to receive this $500 scholarship by the members themselves in acknowledgement of their hard work and determination. This year’s recipient was Zach Fanning of Chestnut, Illinois. Zach is the 22-year-old son of Paul and Lora Fanning. He passed on his red coat at this year’s Junior Nationals, ending his three-year term on the board as President. =

Team Fitting by Damin Hadorn-Papke

ready to go; the clowns waited to spray adhesive and paint. The strong men were at the ready to lift their blower hoses. Illusionists from all over the United States eagerly waited to show their craft. The bearded ladies were ready to show off their hair. Finally, a hush fell over the crowd as the ringmaster came over the microphone and the lights dimmed, “Attention ladies and gentlemen, kids of all age, prepare yourself for The Greatest Cattle Show on Earth!” Then the spot lights shot through the darkness onto the fitters… “five, four, three, two, one, GO”, and the show began. The crowd cheers the fitters on, and the crowd was astonished by the show. Each group was given 30 minutes to complete their show and at the end they were either left standing under the big top or sent home. These following groups were the crowd favorites.

Intermediate Winners.

Senior Winners. The crowd had begun to gather under the big top to watch and marvel at the circus that was about to begin. The ringmaster Damin Hadorn-Papke had gathered together the best of the best, fitters of all ages, for the greatest show on earth.

The audience sat impatiently waiting for the show to begin, anticipation streamed through out the gathering crowds of on-lookers. The teams sat idle waiting for their opportunity to thrill the crowds and put on the performance of their life. The lion tamers’ harnesses were

Arts & Crafts by Kaila Williams

Arts & Craft Winners Every year the Arts & Crafts contests is very competitive no matter what age division. Each year the creativity will blow you away! The judges have to make tough decisions on selecting the Top 5. It truly shows that our members are both creative in and out of the show ring. It is tough to create Shorthorn crafts that have to travel the many miles to NJSS and making sure they still look just as great on arrival. The juniors have the option to donate their crafts if they are selected into the Top 5 to the AJSA Junior Board’s fundraisers to help raise money for Junior Nationals each year. As a Junior Board members, we appreciate you donating your crafts to help make

Lassie Tea & Lassie 101 by Callie Prochaska

Lassie Tea Participates. It was a bright and sunny day in Madison, Wisconsin on Thursday, June the 27th. We had our annual Shorthorn Lassie Tea that morning at 10:00 a.m. and it was such a great success with all the young aspiring lassies. We had around 24 young girls that ranged from ages 3-12 representing many different states. This year we decided to stray away from the typical afternoon of crafts and have the girls join in on a philanthropy activity. The girls had the opportunity to help change lives by getting tie blankets

shorthorn country = august 2018

ready to donate to the American Family Children Hospital right in Madison, Wisconsin. They all sat in circles around the blankets, full of laughter, enjoying their time of helping others. Once they finished that activity the girls cooled down while drinking pink lemonade in antique tea cups and eating cow shaped sugar cookies. Hannah and I were very grateful for the help we had from other state Queens and Princesses. These girls were representatives from Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, and

Wisconsin. I am so proud to see all of the love and passion these young girls have. Later that day, Lassie 101 was also held for all of the State Lassie Queens and Princesses, along with those wanting to start their own journey with the Shorthorn Lassie Association. During this time, we talked about the responsibilities of a lassie and answered any questions that the girls had about running for the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen. We went over the costume, what it stands for, and how to properly wear it. I shared my own experiences and stressed with the girls that what you put into things is what you get out of them. Serving as a Lassie Queen is an honor and I am so glad to see the bright future these girls have. I would like to thank all of the individuals that attended these events and helped set up to make it such a great experience for these young girls. It has been such an honor serving as your National Shorthorn Lassie Queen! =
