= Association Outlook Get Ready for the Ride! Montie D. asa executive Soules secretary/CEO

A

nother new year rolls around and 2020 is here. We have a natural tendency to look back and reminisce as each year passes, but I believe we should make this a time to embrace the new year and all the new events and activities on each of our agendas. In today’s fast-moving world, the technology surrounding us continues to amaze me – such as a small piece of equipment in your home that turns on the lights, makes phone calls and basically runs the entire house using simple voice commands. Or the ability to see who is at your front door and talk to them regardless of where you are in the world. Even the ability to pay bills digitally. The ways technology has changed our lifestyles compared to 5, 10 or 20 years ago is truly unbelievable. As the new year begins, As I think about how technology will change our daily lives in the future, the possibilities are mind-boggling, for example, self-driving and flying cars and scientific advances like growing human organs. Our phones already can do everything a personal computer can. The options continue to grow as technology is developed for global communication. Social media is a part of our lives and in some cases driving the focus of our lives. Just think about the future and what it brings. My father said he lived in the best advancement years ever. He went from using a horse and buggy to seeing a man

on the moon. So where will we end up in 2020 and beyond? How does this all tie into the Shorthorn and beef cattle industry? My simple answer is to be ready for technology of which we have not even dreamed and most importantly, be willing to use it and embrace it to be successful. In the world of professional athletics, the NFL hosts an event called the Combine; where potential professional football players are performance tested for speed, agility, jumping and anything they can measure to get a read on there ability. Those athletes are drafted and paid on the basis of their performance rating along with their past performance in games. I read awhile back about a baseball team general manager that started measuring the performance of baseball athletes. It is the same; how fast are you and how far or fast can you throw ball. What is your range to chase a ball down. Look at the basketball players; what is their wingspan and their vertical jump. They are valued on their ability and how they performance tested. It is all timed, measured and compared to determine if you qualify and are good enough to play professional sports. If you think this process does not work, try to get a contract to play and not go through the system. The teams and coaches have found out they need this information to judge and evaluate the value of the athlete. We also use performance data to make

business decisions based on information and technology of the genetics of our animals. We use EPDs and Indexes to make comparisons and determine value. We have genomic advancement now that help us learn more about our animals at a younger age. These tools give us insight to project if animals will weigh enough at 12 months or weaning or what the BW issues may be. The added value of carcass information to give our customers more security in purchasing our product knowing that it will perform in the feedlot and on the rail and most important perform for the consumer and provide a good eating experience. The need to gather the data, use the data and help evaluate the value of an animal is necessary for success. Just like the professional athletic teams., we need all this information to develop a true picture of what we are selecting that will add value to our teams. 2020 is now here and new technology will come with it. There will continually be new forms of evaluations that can be measured as the technology is developed. The progressive individuals will embrace it and utilize it to make better decisions. The future is now and is being driven by technology. So, get ready for the ride and challenge. Those that do, will be the successful ones! =

Matt director of Woolfolk performance programs

New Year for Shorthorns Happy New Year! I’m not exactly sure where 2019 went, but 2020 is here and I hope that everyone is ready for the unique challenges that will come with the new year. The start of a new year is an exciting time, usually full of hope and determination to do some things better than the previous year. If you are into making New Year’s resolutions, I hope you have the willpower to stick with whatever you set out to do in 2020. Make the most of that 12-month gym membership, and don’t stop after Chapter 1 of Speaking Spanish for Dummies (or whatever personal growth goal you may have this year)! If the Shorthorn breed uses 2020 to build off the enthusiasm at the end of 2019, we are in for a fun year! The energy around the Shorthorn community right now is encouraging. Walking the barns at Louisville, breeders and exhibitors were telling stories about demand for cattle; with several discussing that their calls for bulls exceeded what they had to offer in their bull pens! A few days later, we had the largest Annual Meeting attendance we have had during my tenure. Folks thoroughly enjoyed the educational program, and the mood in the halls

during breaks was upbeat and lively. I have a feeling that the enthusiasm will carry over to the Yards in Denver and we will have yet another great event to kick off 2020 at the National Western. The central theme of the Annual Meeting was “Building a Positive Breed Image”, and the lineup of speakers did a fantastic job of discussing this topic from many angles. Whether it was data of how Shorthorns have performed commercially, insight into what the breed needs to do to gain commercial acceptance, or wisdom from other seedstock producers, those that were there would be hard pressed to not find something they could take away from the event. With all these discussions of breed image and the importance of building a positive reputation for Shorthorns, my main takeaway thought is that it takes everyone to make it happen. It’s not something that can be done by just the ASA staff, the board of directors, or a handful of select breeders. It takes everyone pulling together in the same direction, laying the foundation to build a stronger image for the Shorthorn breed. We have to work together. Everyone in the breed plays a role in

building up the image of Shorthorns. As breeders, you play a role by providing superior customer service, collecting information, using that data to try and improve your breeding program, and promoting your operation (and in turn the Shorthorn breed) in a positive light. As ASA staff, we can do some things to help grow the Shorthorn footprint; such as working with Grant Company on a marketing campaign, providing a weekly genetic evaluation through IGS, or developing relationships with universities for research opportunities. However, we can’t take those steps without the support of the ASA Board and breeders who are interested in breeding better Shorthorn cattle. It’s a symbiotic relationship where we all help each other in the mission of growing and improving the Shorthorn brand. Best wishes to all of you in 2020. I think we all had plenty of challenges in 2019, but as agriculturalists we are certainly a resilient bunch. I hope all of you get the weather you need for the year and the cattle market is strong enough to keep you and your red cows in the black this season. =

Bruce E. Brooks, a southwest Iowa native, grew up on a livestock and grain farm. His father, Harold raised and bred registered Shorthorn cattle. Bruce worked on his families farm while growing up. He showed Shorthorn steers and heifers at the county level and at the Ak-Sar-Ben in Omaha, NE. He attended Oklahoma State University in Stillwater where he was a member of the 1969 and 1970 livestock judging teams. He was also a member of the Block and Bridle Club and Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. After graduating from Oklahoma State University, Pete Swaffer &Ted Aegerter of the American Shorthorn Association hired Bruce to travel the southwestern states as a field rep. He later worked the same area for the Drover Journal from 1972-1974, working for J. Neil, Orth. In the fall of 1974, Brooks joined Ken Holloway with American Cattle Services, specializing in the purebred cattle marketing business. In 1975, Bruce began auctioneering purebred cattle sales and has continued in that field ever since, working predominantly Limousin and Shorthorn events. In 2004 he started including real estate sales to his schedule when he joined up with Williams & Williams Auction Company of Tulsa, Okla. Bruce has served on the board of directors for the Oklahoma Limousin Breeders & Love County Soil Conservation and is an active member of various livestock organizations. Bruce married Kathy O’Brien in 1977. They have a son, Lance Brooks, two daughters, Kristy Sanders & Amy London.

They are proud to boast having six grandchildren. The family was actively involved in showing and selling steers and heifers through 1980s and 1990s. A Brooks family highlight includes winning Grand Champion Limousin Heifers honors twice at the NWSS junior show, Amy in 1994 and Kristy in 1995. In 1998, Bruce and Kathy received the OLBA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, primarily in recognition of their work with junior programs. They are also members of the Saddle & Sirloin Club in Oklahoma City helping promote 4-H and FFA members in Oklahoma. Bruce and Kathy own and operate Brooks Cattle Company in south central Oklahoma, a commercial cow-calf and stocker operation which is headquartered at Marietta. While still active in the auction business and running their own ranch the Brooks spend many days and hours watching their grandchildren show their own cattle projects. Bruce has been auctioneering registered livestock and real estate for 45 years and has auctioned in every state in the union except Hawaii and Alaska. In 2010, at the NWSS he was inducted into the “Livestock Marketeers Hall of Fame” an informal fraternity of livestock fieldman, sale managers and related livestock business leaders. Bruce said he has had the privilege and honor of selling many Shorthorn cattle sales nationwide and tried to do so in a positive and professional matter no matter how large or how small the sales might be, always respecting the producers who have given him the opportunity to merchandise their cattle. =

Keith’s “start” with Shorthorn Cattle was through a 4-H project. He credits his Uncle Milton Nagely for being instrumental in getting him interested in the Purebred Business. The first significant purchase was Melita Rosewood 2 D from Arthur Waits of Cassoday, Kan., in 1954. Numerous offspring have sold from this one cow, such as the pedigree of Waukaru Goldmine 2109 whose Dam has two KL Melita Rosewood cows in her pedigree. Solomon Valley Rose was a cow that established the KL Royal Rose family from which KL Double Duty came, who had the lowest birth-weight EPD’s in the Shorthorn Breed for some years. Three of the Shorthorn Breed’s top nine Birth-Weight Trait-Leading Ladies for 2004 were raised on the Lauer Farm/ Ranch, two of which were from the KL Royal Rose line. Additions were made in 1957 with purchases from R.C. Boeger of Missouri. All KL Rosewoods, KL Cassandrias and KL Mina Star cow families stemmed from this purchase. An important decision was made in 1970 with the purchase of Homedale Cornet Leader 72nd from the Kaehler Family in MN., which was the first polled bull. In an attempt to build a herd that was functional and commercially applicable, there have been many learning experiences but also the unexpected privileges such as host-

ing the 2007 American Shorthorn Assoc. University Tour, some Kansas Shorthorn Tours, hosting a group from Wales, and being chosen as one of the USA World Shorthorn Tour stops in 2004. Keith said being named a Builder of the Breed (in 1987) and having the National Western Shorthorn Show in Denver dedicated to our family (in 2016) were humbling experiences. In past years, Keith actively supported the formerly active Mid-Kansas Shorthorn Show and Sale held in Salina, KS. and served for 15 years as its President. He also has served on the KS. Shorthorn Assoc. Board of Directors and was active in County and State cattle organizations. Nadene and Keith enjoy their family daughter and husband, Rita and Ellis Yoder, three grandsons, and four great-grandchildren. Keith says the most enjoyable and lasting thing is not monetary, but having good friends in many places. He had great satisfaction from being able to supply breeding stock to outstanding herd operations in 13 states and has furnished stock for two herds getting started in recent times. He is thankful that the few heifers that he had in his teens proved to be more than a 4-H project - - instead a vocation! =

Mark W.P. Gordon

Phillip & Linda Bowman

Mark W. P. Gordon’s passion for the Shorthorn breed started in 1971, at the age of 8, when his grandmother bought him his first Shorthorn heifer for a 4H project. Little did he know, what an influence and impact it would have in his life. He became a member of the American Junior Shorthorn Association as well as the Illinois Junior Shorthorn Association. Mark received his FFA State Farmer Degree in 1981 and was the State runner-up in the Beef Proficiency Awards with his growing Shorthorn herd. Mark attended Black Hawk East College, where he competed on the livestock judging team. Under the tutelage of Dan Hoge, Mark’s passion and desire to breed and produce Shorthorn cattle was fueled. His initial selection criteria was for phenotype but as time went on and data became more relevant, it was implemented into the cow herd. In 2013, Mark was awarded the Black Hawk East Agribusiness Hall of Fame. His portrait hangs in the entrance way into the campus along with other Alumni Leaders in the industry. One of his greatest honors was to be elected to the American Shorthorn Association Board of Directors in 2011. He worked alongside fellow breeders, staff and the board to help make this great breed of cattle have a larger impact in the beef industry. Working with breeders to promote Shorthorn cattle and implement programs for breed prosperity was truly a highlight of his time on the board. He was elected President in 2015 and 2016. While on the board, he was always supportive of new innovative programs or technology that would benefit the breed. He believes we’re not only a show cattle breed, but we are a very commercially accepted breed that have breeders who work together for the success of this great breed of cattle.

For the last 33 years Mark has managed Croft Fertilizer Service Inc, an independently owned retail fertilizer business. He works with employees and staff to maximize yield potential and profitability for customers is a very rewarding experience for him. Currently, his family owns 35 cows with the majority of them being Shorthorn and a few commercial cows used for recips. All cows are either AI bred or used as recips. All cattle are cleaned up with SULL RGLC Legacy 525, many time National Champion bull that was raised on the farm and currently co-owned with his partner Sullivan Farms. It is not every day your cleanup up bull is also 7-time national champion as well as being a 2 time show bull of the year. Mark has enrolled and participated in the last two University of Illinois Sire test. The goal is to prove that show cattle can also be commercially accepted with success. Something of importance to mark and of the breed. He is a large supporter of the junior program. He has donated a heifer to Leading a Legacy in the past as well as other donations. He believes they are of vital importance for our continued success in the beef industry. He has sold cattle privately or thru state and national sales. He enjoys working with new customers, especially junior members in their purchase. This is vital in their merchandising of their product. Growing up in the Shorthorn family, Mark has always looked up to and admired the recipients of the Builder of the Breed award. They are a group of people and families that he thinks very highly of because of their dedication to this great breed. He said this is bar none, the greatest award he could ever imagine being a recipient of, and is truly honored, humbled and thankful for it. =

Phillip & Linda Bowman of Bowman Superior Genetics got their start in the Shorthorn breed in 1994, but Phillip’s passion for Shorthorns was ignited in the mid 1960’s after a high school field trip to the Chicago Stockyards to learn about the beef industry. From 1994 to 2004, BSG was busy with their kids, Laura, Luke and Lindsay’s junior projects. These AJSA members exhibited cattle on the county, state and national level and took home awards, but more importantly they learned fundamental lessons in raising purebred livestock. Since 2005, BSG has always put the Shorthorn breed and genetic improvement to the forefront, consistently submitting performance data. Phil and Linda invest a lot of time in ASA programs, and some programs not directly involving ASA, for the industry to notice the benefits of the Shorthorn animal. They were original consignors to the “Great State Feedout” in Iowa. They admire and appreciate the ASA’s effort to have a national sire test and were proudly part of the last two cycles. They genomically test 100% of the females, both the purebred and composite cattle. In their 2018 female sale, BSG made sure all of the live lots were genomically tested. This was the first sale in the Shorthorn breed, both nationally and internationally, to offer a

100% tested offering. They also participate in the Mizzou Hair Shedding Project. Today, the herd consists of 100 breeding age females; purebreds, composites and foundations. Each female is mandated to represent the program with production records that prove their genetic superiority. All heifer calves are retained after weaning for 205-day weights and are genomically tested. Females are sorted on phenotype and genotype; cull decisions are made after the GE-EPD results are published and the team sorts them on visual appraisal. BSG has been involved in total herd enrollment through Whole Herd Reporting most of their existence. This is an exceptionally important program to them because EPDs are only accurate when the entire contemporary group is documented, and culling data creates the #1 most economically relevant trait, Stayability. Phillip and Linda have played a significant role in developing new breeders of Shorthorn cattle across state lines for more than two decades. Perhaps one of the most fulfilling parts of owning and operating BSG is Phil and Linda educating early producers and building relationships with those who are also passionate about this grand British breed. =

NAILE 2019 Shorthorn Show Honoree Ron Rutan

willing promoter of Shorthorns and eager to help juniors care for and exhibit cattle on a local and national level. Rutan said the Shorthorn heritage goes way back in his genes and they were one of the first breeds he worked with growing up. Shorthorns have remained in his life but he enjoys working with all breeds of cattle. Rutan said it is an honor to be selected as show honoree for Louisville. He has been an exhibitor at Louisville since 1993. He said he is just working hard and doing what he loves. The American Shorthorn Association would like to congratulate Ron Rutan for being selected as the 2019 North American International Livestock Exposition, Jack C. Ragsdale National Shorthorn Show Honoree. = Ron Rutan with family and friends in Louisville, Ky., receiving the Show Honoree award.

Ron Rutan’s long history of being involved in the Shorthorn breed began with his parents and grandparents raising Shorthorns. Rutan started RC Show Cattle with Christy Campbell in 1991 in Eaton, Ohio and from there he stayed actively involved with Shorthorns. Rutan and RC Show Cattle have bred and exhibited many AI Sires including CF Nasdaq, reserve national champion; Time For Gold, reserve national champion; Freckles, reserve national champion; Damn Proud, Moose, Solid Gold and RF RC Dirk Diggler. Rutan has taken these cattle and more all over the country to many national shows over the years and in the last ten years he has displayed quite a few Shorthorn bulls in the yards at the National Western Stock Show. RC Show Cattle is always particular in picking a good string for Louisville. They usually have 13 or 14 head there and people respect that. There are also not many people from Ohio that take cattle to Denver. Ron and Clair Bye took three head and came home with five banners. RC Show Cattle also has an Annual Early Bird Sale on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend to auction their cattle. 18

He has also been active in his state and the national association, serving as a director of the Ohio Shorthorn Association. He served as an ASA Member of the national show committee. Rutan was selected as the 2018 ASA Herdsman of the Year. Outside of being involved with Shorthorns, Rutan has owned and operated a fence construction business for the last 33 years as well as custom hoof trimming. Many people come from all over Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky to have Rutan trim hooves of their show cattle. Rutan also was Texas for a little bit in the 1970s and had a custom fitting service. Through his custom hoof trimming and being a 4-H advisor, Ron has reached many people to promote Shorthorn cattle and the beef industry in general. He is always a

Lawrence Grathwohl Shorthorn Herdsman of the Year - Craig and Stephanie Steck by Shelby Diehm

The 2019 Shorthorn Herdsman of the Year is being awarded to a very deserving couple. Their continued dedication to youth in the agricultural industry is something that sets them apart. They have many show kids that they treat as their own and even put their “show family first.” With the slogan “right kind, right way, right people, our commitment,” you learn just what Steck Cattle is all about. They are committed to the people in this industry. The idea for this slogan began many years before Steck Cattle became what it is today. Craig is a third-generation purebred Shorthorn breeder that grew up in Illinois. He learned from his father about cattle production, evaluation, clipping, fitting and genetics. His father taught him the importance of pedigrees and cow families. Craig attended Black Hawk before continuing his education at

the University of Illinois. He competed on the judging team at both schools where he learned to evaluate cattle at a different level. Stephanie developed her passion for the cattle industry growing up on her family’s farm in Nebraska. She exhibited cattle competitively in 4-H for many years and developed a strong work ethic that she brought to the Steck Cattle show barn. Stephanie developed her artistic abilities when she pursued a degree in graphic design and marketing from Creighton University. She now helps livestock producers market their animals. Craig and Stephanie established Steck Cattle in 2012 and began building their herd to become more than just Shorthorn cattle. They established a goal of doing things the right way each day to keep their operation going. They started with an exceptional group of Shorthorn donors to begin their genetics they have

now. After moving from Nebraska to Minnesota, they were able to continue raising their cattle and start their family. Today, Steck Cattle runs more than 35 mature cows and they use ET and AI production. They focus on their slogan to ensure that they can have successful customers and it shows from their many champions exhibited at local, state and national shows. They even raised a Shorthorn that was selected as the 2018 NAILE Supreme Champion female! This year the Lawrence Grathwohl Shorthorn Herdsman of the Year was sponsored by the Shorthorn Foundation and awarded to Craig and Stephanie Steck of Steck Cattle Company. =

= Junior Corner Moment of Truth Gabriella ajsa Leone public relations

Being a junior at the ASA Annual Meeting is a different level of breed exposure that I truly appreciate. Since be elected to serve on the junior board, I have been mainly focused on junior shows and fundraisers, and the opportunities and atmosphere we get to provide. One thing has seemed to become buried in the chaos of everyday life is the true mission of cattlemen and women. Our mission is to produce beef. Production agriculture is the essence to the cattle industry and sometimes as cattle breeders, we get distracted by the extravagant shows, intense competition, and flamboyant sales. We forget to appreciate the reason that we do all of it. I won’t lie, I love showing and competing as much as anyone else. However, the closer I get to aging out of the junior shows and ending my term on junior board, the more I realize the bigger purpose. Every show is a competition to award the highest quality livestock, every sale stands to sell calves to other producers to improve their cattle, and at the end of every day cattle live to feed the world.

My challenge to you is to establish your mission and how it aligns with this moment of truth. The Shorthorn breed is scrutinized by other breeds for being the “show breed,” but that’s not our breeds fault. I don’t want to give the impression that our shows are bad or our passion is wrong, because I definitely do not feel that way. Our breed is one of the most elite industry-leaders in the ring. Our staff, boards, and members all go above and beyond to help us accomplish this level of success. The goal I am proposing is to redefine Shorthorn’s purpose. Simply the question, ‘What is our role outside of the show ring?’ The answer to that question may be different for everyone and their operations. Some of you may not have even asked yourselves this question yet; and that is the point of this moment of truth. As I said before, it is easy to get distracted by all the excitement around the show ring. But if we really want to be a true meaningful breed, we need to identify our purpose, set goals, and take charge. As we near our 150th year of the American Shorthorn Association, think about all of the trends and fads

that our breed has led. Shorthorns have had many purposes and taken charge in a lot of different directions over the last century and a half. Now it is time for us to face this moment of truth, wake up, and start a new mission. The best part is it’s all up to you as Shorthorn breeders, producers, showman, and enthusiasts! So, the question is, what will you do? =
