Beef Business

Matt director of Woolfolk performance programs

Maintaining Balance The month of February is the unofficial kickoff of bull sale season across the country. I’ve developed a trend of talking about something related to bull sale season in the February issue, and 2021 is going to be no different. While maybe not a “facts and figures” based article, hopefully some personal observations can be insightful. I’ve had some breeders challenge me to “speak my mind” more often in this column. Maybe this piece will satisfy that request for a little while. It’s not a revelation to anyone reading this when I say that every cattle breed has traits or characteristics that they excel over the competition. Likewise, every breed has areas that would be considered a weak spot that needs improving. That is where the challenge of cattle breeding becomes fun: trying to improve shortcomings while not sacrificing strengths. As I look around the industry as a whole, I wonder if some of us are veering off that course. Every year, more and more bulls are marketed to the commercial cattleman with outstanding growth and terminal genetic predictors. I think the industry as a whole has done a really good job increasing and improving the growth and carcass merit of beef cattle. New EPDs and the acceptance of selection indexes allow breeders to move forward in selecting for these traits more rapidly than ever before. Those are good things. However, I think there has been a cost associated

with that movement. There are a lot of bulls sold every year that don’t have what I consider acceptable structure, starting at the ground. Feet and leg quality is something that seems to be dwindling in our pursuit of “better” genetics. Maybe genetics isn’t the only factor at play causing this to happen, as management could play a big role if bulls are pushed too hard. I’m not pointing a finger at one specific breed in this instance; I see it in several types of cattle. Bulls with poorer feet and legs don’t hold up as long and have to be replaced more often, and maybe that is what some merchandisers want to keep their annual bull demand afloat. Is frequent bull replacement a cost of doing business that most commercial cattlemen are ok with incurring for the benefit of adding stronger genetics? If you were to ask them, I don’t think a majority of them would answer that question with a “Yes”. Don’t interpret this as me saying that selecting for higher performing cattle is wrong and that utilizing growth and carcass EPDs is a bad thing. Anyone that knows my thoughts on cattle breeding at all knows I am a firm believer in using performance data, EPDs, and indexes. I’m also a believer in balance. Completely relying on EPDs for selection is just as much of a mistake as ignoring numbers altogether. Lots of traits have numbers and EPDs we can use to help us out, but not everything can be counted or simply measured. Common sense and

good stockmanship can’t be lost in cattle breeding, no matter what your breed or goal might be. The Shorthorn breed does some things well that others seem to be sacrificing in their pursuit of improving terminal genetic merit. As a whole, I think foot and leg quality in the Shorthorn bulls entering the commercial marketplace is a strength that we can be proud of. Athletic bulls with good running gears last longer in range conditions and sire females that do the same. Putting a tightly suspended udder with proper teat size under that half-blood cow will further value her (and the breed as a whole) to the industry. I’m proud of our breeders that continue to emphasize these things in their programs. I’m even more proud of the ones who maintain feet and udder quality, but also want to push forward with growth and carcass genetic improvement. As long as we sell cattle by the pound or on a quality-based grid in this industry, these traits are going to matter. To keep a seat in the commercial marketplace, we as cattle breeders can’t abandon any traits, no matter how great or small they might be to the operation. We can’t abandon functional traits. We can’t abandon eye appeal. We can’t abandon data, EPDs and selection indexes. Cattle breeding is a messy puzzle, but the pieces always seem to come together for those that work hard enough at it. =

Planning is Underway Even though 2020 was filled with negatives, and 2021 is trying to recover from what a tough year we just had, I would say it is off to a great start! We started the year with the Cattlemen’s Congress in Oklahoma City and exhibited more than 500 head with pen cattle and “hill” cattle combined. The Cattlemen’s Congress was beyond successful for being a first-time event that was planned and organized in just a few months. The atmosphere was positive and breeders were excited to get back together for a more normal event. While in Oklahoma City, we were finally able to host the American Junior Shorthorn Association Deck the Stalls Fundraiser. Typically, this fundraiser is held in Louisville during NAILE, but due to restrictions we had to postpone the event. I would like to thank all of the donors, buyers and bidders for coming out to support the juniors; whether you

supported live or online, it is appreciated! Deck the Stalls and the many other fundraisers we have throughout the year all support the Shorthorn Youth Development Fund and youth programs. One of the excellent youth programs supported by our fundraisers is the National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference, which is produced only by sponsorships and donations we receive throughout the year. Since we are now in 2021, planning is underway for the “Shorthorn Safari” on June 20-26 in Louisville, Kentucky. Last summer after the NJSS in Abilene, the AJSA junior board met to discuss the 2021 show. They decided to update the current contests as well as add new ones! This year, instead of the extemporaneous speaking contest, seniors can participate in a career development contest. Participants in this contest will submit a job description,

resume and cover letter by June 1. The materials will be reviewed by a panel of judges and during the NJSS, participants will go through a mock interview based on their submissions. After the contest, they will receive a critique of their materials and interview. The junior board has also added a junior herdsman award for senior exhibitors. Be sure to visit juniorshorthorn.com/ contest-rules-2021/ to view the new contest and updates. You can view the new speech topics and cut of beef for the cook-off. We have also included rubrics for the speaking contests so participants know what the judge follows. We look forward to an exciting NJSS this summer and can’t wait to see everyone in Louisville! Be sure to watch the AJSA Facebook page and website to stay up to date on all details related to NJSS! =

Junior Corner

Allyssa ajsa Obrecht secretary

juniorshorthorn.com

Build Your Legacy As I’m writing this article, I’m reflecting back on an incredible week in Oklahoma City at the Cattlemen’s Congress. First off, I would like to thank all of the staff and volunteers who not only made this show happen, but also made sure that it was a top-notch, well-ran event. Secondly, I would like to thank all the Shorthorn breeders, exhibitors, and families for adhering to the event guidelines which allowed everyone the opportunity to get back in the ring again. The Cattlemen’s Congress was a special event for me, not only because I got to see my Shorthorn family again, but also because this was the first livestock show I’ve attended since the passing of my grandfather, Charlie Obrecht. This hardship has not been easy by any means, but through this grief, I’ve learned a couple things that I would like to share with all the juniors. 1) Don’t be afraid to meet new people. This is something my grandfather taught me from an early age, as he truly knew no strangers. He had the ability to befriend anyone. By doing so, he made friendships that lasted his entire life with people across the country. The people in this industry, especially within the Shorthorn breed, are second to none. By

creating new connections, you will gain friends that turn into family. They will always have your back and will help push you to succeed in this industry. 2) Build your legacy. As a child, I always looked up to my Grandpa as a role model, but it wasn’t until his passing that I fully realized the influence he had on the people of the Shorthorn breed. I’ve received numerous texts and calls from Shorthorn breeders and families sharing memories they had with my Grandpa as well as kind words about the good person he was. My family and I have been able to cherish these memories of him as we go through this difficult time. From the day my Grandpa became involved in the Shorthorn breed, he began creating his legacy. His actions and his words are still remembered now, 81 years later. Let that soak in juniors. What you’re doing now will be remembered many years down the road. So keep this in mind as you continue to build your legacy within the Shorthorn breed. Remember this as you’re exhibiting your cattle at shows and interacting with other juniors. Build a positive legacy as a showman, as a Shorthorn breeder, and as an advocate for the livestock industry. =

News & Notes Farewells On December 22, 2020, rodeo and ranching legend Roger “Sloan” Williams passed away in Wharton, Texas. He was 88 years old. Sloan Williams was born on August 28, 1932 in Navasota, Texas to Knox T. Williams, Jr. and Catherine Sloan Williams. Sloan, his older brother Knox Williams III (deceased, 2005) and the Williams family resided in Millican, Texas, where Sloan’s father and grandfather were pioneering ranchers and landowners. A graduate of Navasota High School, Sloan was the District FFA President, Vice-President of his Senior Class, and a football and basketball player, but he was most proud of how he would sneak out of school to work on the family’s ranch. Sloan started his own commercial cattle operation the year he graduated, in 1950. On July 15, 1954, Sloan married Mollie Jo Forgason of the J.D. Hudgins Brahman Ranch. The couple lived briefly in Houston while Sloan worked at Port City Stockyards. One year later, they settled permanently in Hungerford, Texas. Sloan worked on the J.D. Hudgins Ranch for several years before starting his own business, the Sloan Williams Rodeo Company. In the 1960s and ‘70s, Sloan was known as a top dealer of rank bucking stock – at one time, he owned over 300 bucking bulls. His most famous bull, V-61, was

unridden for four years and inducted into the Bull Riding Hall of Fame. Sloan won the I.R.A Saddle Bronc of the Year award for four consecutive years (1967 to 1970) and the 1967 Bareback Horse of the Year award. Sloan loved nothing more than attending rodeos and cattle shows so he could have good visits with his many friends. He’d usually greet them with a wide grin and the opening line: “You got any money?” He was beloved for his corny jokes and many colorful expressions like: “Shoot low; they may be riding Shetlands!” Known for ‘doing deals’, Sloan couldn’t resist buying a herd of cattle or a piece of land. It was 1971 when he sold his rodeo company and purchased V8 Ranch, a registered Brahman operation established in 1944. Working with his family, he established V8 Ranch as one of the top Brahman herds in the world and was an active rancher until the last year of his life. In addition to serving as President of the American Brahman Breeders Association, Sloan also served as an internationally renowned cattle judge. After judging the International Brahman Show in 1994, The Brahman Journal wrote: “The audience got everything they could have asked for and more this year when Sloan Williams stepped into the Houston arena. He is the most respected judge the Brahman breed has ever produced across all breed barriers. Sloan is a cattleman that knows very few peers.” He was exceedingly proud to have judged some of the most prestigious cattle shows in the world including Australia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala,

Honduras, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand and The Philippines; he made friends wherever he went. Sloan and Mollie were humbled by the honors they received from their peers. He was inducted into both the American Brahman Breeders Association Hall of Fame and the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame. The 2000 International Brahman Show was dedicated to him, and the 2019 National Brahman Show was dedicated to both Sloan and Mollie. Just as important to Sloan was the honor of serving as Deacon at Abell Street Church of Christ, where he was an active member for decades. Sloan is survived by his wife of 66 years, Mollie, their children, Jim Williams (Luann) and Jan Williams Powell, and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved watching his three grandchildren: Rachel Williams Cutrer (Brandon); Catherine Sloan Williams Neumayr (Luke), and Payton Sloan Powell Jessee (Joe Dodge) compete in cattle shows and rodeos just as much as he enjoyed watching them get married and start their own professional lives and families. The great grandkids: Mollie Jo Cutrer, Ann Catherine Cutrer, and Knox Neumayr, will miss sharing bowls of Blue Bell ice cream with their Daddaw. As Sloan enters the gates to the Big Ranch in the Sky, we can all see him turning around to sign off with his signature goodbye: “Check’s in the mail!” =
