Montie D. asa executive Soules secretary/CEO

could visit with you about a lot of different topics this month; if I shared everything on my mind the space needed would use up a large portion of this month’s Shorthorn Country, so I will primarily focus on topics that are part of the Annual Meeting and Forum. First I want to bring to your attention the agenda for the Annual Meeting at 2:00pm on Dec. 1st at Harrah’s in Kansas City found on page 15. This year’s Forum is scheduled for two full days on Friday Nov. 30th & Dec. 1st. Event registration and room reservations can be made on shorthorn.org. Your registration includes all of the educational forums, socials, lunch on Saturday plus the Awards Banquet Saturday evening. This year we have a guest speaker at the Awards Banquet who specializes in addressing agricultural groups. He should prove to be entertaining and provide some interesting thoughts for you to consider. This will be an especially enjoyable session! Friday morning will begin with educational breakout sessions hosted by ASA staff sharing enlightening information for membership in their specific areas. This will be followed with committee meetings discussing topics for members to review during the coming year. The afternoon session we will begin with the Educational Forum of the 2-day event. This year’s Forum is entitled “Position Yourself for Success”. The speakers and presentations will touch on a few topics and opportunities on both Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. To see the full schedule for this event go to page 14. A lot is happening in our industry behind the scenes. The demographics of consumer acceptability is changing rapidly for beef consumption, bull markets and purebred cattle. The opportunity for Shorthorn members and breeders to take advantage of these market demands is available if we get prepared for the changes. Packing Companies are demanding feedlots to be BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) Certified before accepting cattle from them. As a result, the feedlots will be requiring producers to be BQA Certified before accepting their cattle into the feedlots. This is just one example of many compulsory changes coming to our industry if we expect a premium or a market share. Specialty markets are growing at a fast pace in all areas of food consumption. I understand you might be asking, how does this affect me as a purebred breeder? Well, it all impacts the industry. You have decisions to make going forward “how do you want to fit on how do you want to fit into the market chain? Your acceptance and value in the into the market chain?” market chain as a seedstock producer is affected by the performance you have attached to your animals. Feed conversion, eating quality, carcass traits along with productivity traits are being demanded from buyers at every level. Now add how the animal is cared for and ensuring the consumer has a great eating experience. It is all related; every piece is a link in the chain. The same is true for those selling junior show calves. They need to have proven performance of being able to win and become a cow. The customer must have a great experience with the animal and with the breed if we expect them to return for another. Satisfied customers and consumers is always important, including the person consuming a steak or the person purchasing a bull or replacement female, just like the junior member’s family purchasing a show heifer. We, as producers better pay attention to the needs of every link in the market chain if we plan to have any stayabilty in the industry. The new technologies and demographics in our industry that will determine future success are in motion already. This is an exciting time to be in the Shorthorn business with more opportunities and options available to us. It is time to “Position Ourselves for the Future” on Nov. 30th and Dec. 1st! =

Matt director of Woolfolk performance programs

A Cattleman’s Thanksgiving List I’m sure many of you will at some point this month sit around a dinner table with family members and discuss things that you are thankful for. It’s a simple, yet powerful, exercise that I think we could all agree should probably be a part of our daily routines, instead of our routines on a single Thursday in late November. It goes without saying that I am extremely blessed and have lots to be thankful for each and every day. A supportive group of family and friends, the right to worship God freely, and the simple freedoms that come with living in the United States are just the tip of the iceberg. As a cattleman, there are several other items I am thankful for. 1. I’m thankful that this breed has the opportunity and leadership to tackle innovative projects to keep improving Shorthorns. Programs like the University of Illinois Sire Test and the new Genomic Enhanced Heifer Program don’t just come to fruition with the snap of a finger. It takes lots of brainstorming, developing, and perfecting from our team of staff to pursue and implement the right programs that would have the most benefit to the Shorthorn breed. Several of our programs have started as ideas in one of the ASA Committees. After all the planning, it takes a vote of support from the ASA Board of Directors and belief and participation from membership to make these programs successful. I feel confident that there will be more innovative ideas coming from our committees and ASA Board in the

future. 2. I am thankful for advancements in genetic selection technology. The tools to help us all breed better cattle are stronger than ever before. The ASA partnership with IGS, weekly single-step EPD runs through BOLT, and GE-EPDs are things that are useful to help all cattle breeders create a better product for the commercial customer. Other segments of production agriculture are becoming technologically advanced at dizzying rates, and it is awesome to see the beef cattle industry (and the Shorthorn breed) making that step forward. 3. I am thankful that high-quality American beef is in high demand! Contrary to what some in this country might try to tell you, we have the safest food supply in the world within our nation’s borders. Fortunately for us, beef plays a major role in that supply. More and more information is becoming available on the nutritional and health benefits of beef, and we’ve always known that it tastes pretty good almost any way you want to cook it. There’s a reason people celebrate special occasions and big moments with trips to the steakhouse, not the chicken house! 4. I am thankful that the cattle market is showing signs of growth and opportunity. No, we aren’t in 20142015 levels of high-priced opportunity, but signs and market influence’s appear to be pointing towards solid feeder and fat cattle prices in the near future. When our commercial customers’ product is

worth more, we as seedstock producers benefit as well, usually with an increased value of our seedstock. 5. I’m thankful for calving season. Yes, there’s a lot of work and difficulty that comes with calving season. I’m not thankful for the 3am heifer checks, the backwards bull calf, and the occasional loss, even if everything possible was done to try and save one. Calving season is hard, but it’s also rewarding. There’s the joy of seeing your work planning matings come to fruition, and the hope that this will be the best calf crop ever born on the farm. Watching a calf crop be born, grow, and develop is as rewarding a pursuit as we can have on a cattle operation. 6. I am thankful that I am able to spend my life in the beef cattle industry, even if it isn’t on the farm. I’ll be honest, there are very few days that I don’t think about being home on the farm and how much I miss it. No matter where I am, the farm I grew up on and the cow herd that runs there will always be “home”. I feel very blessed that growing up where I did exposed me to the cattle industry as a whole, which led to educational stops in Mississippi and Texas, and eventually the opportunity where I am today in Kansas City. I can’t imagine being a part of any other industry other than agriculture, and in particular the beef cattle business. I hope all of you have a safe, Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by the people you love. Enjoy the time together, and I hope at some point in the holiday season, there is beef on your plate! =

= Intent to Run Members Announce Intent to Run for ASA Board of Directors John Sonderman, PhD, PAS – ASA Members: My family and I currently reside on a small farm near Columbus, Nebraska, where we have been raising purebred Shorthorn cattle since 1996. The focus of the operation is to sell bulls to commercial and purebred operations, as well as open heifers. Our cattle are more moderate framed with a focus on volume and easy fleshing. I have served as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Nebraska Shorthorn Association for more than 10 years and I am currently in my second term as the Committee Chair of the Genetic Evaluation Committee with the American Shorthorn Association. Our children participated in several Shorthorn Junior Nationals and multiple Nebraska Junior Beef Expo Shows and contests. My travels with work have allowed me to visit over 40 different Shorthorn breeders in the United States and Canada. This has allowed me to see different types of Shorthorn cattle managed for different markets and in different environments. My industry experience includes over ten years working in the US feed industry in the area of nutrition and reproductive management in cattle and swine operations. I have B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of NebraskaLincoln, and a PhD from Colorado State University in Reproductive Physiology in cattle. Presently, I am employed as the Business Leader of Multiplication & Technical Services for DNA Genetics, which provides over 35% of the terminal sire and 17% of the maternal genetics to the commercial swine industry in North America. My primary role is to make sure customers get the support and research they need to optimally manage our genetics. Our business has an extensive performance testing program at the nucleus level and at the commercial level that drives our genetic improvement, therefore creating value for customers. We use genomics to help increase the prediction accuracy of the performance of our boars and gilts. My vision for the future of the 16

Shorthorn breed involves continued support for the tremendous Junior program that has been built. Developing a passion for Shorthorn cattle in young people will help ensure a strong future by developing Shorthorn leaders of the future. It has led my children to want to continue our herd in the next generation. My vision for the future of genomics and overall performance testing in this great breed of cattle is to show the value of the Shorthorn breed in commercial cow herds and in the feedlot. My commercial customers like the docility, hybrid vigor and stayability that Shorthorn genetics bring to their cow herds and the economical growth that creates more profit in their feedlots. My children’s experience with the Junior program confirms its value to the breed. I also believe that the Shorthorn breed has an important place in the cattle industry. My background working with commercial beef and swine operations allows me to understand how technology and performance testing can be used to promote the Shorthorn breed in that segment of the industry. I would feel privileged to help chart the future of this great breed. Hugh Mooney - In December of 2015 I was my honor to be elected to serve as a member of the American Shorthorn Association Board of Directors. After reflecting on the past three years of service to the association I have decided to run for a second term. Like most members of the American Shorthorn Association I have a fulltime job other than raising shorthorn cattle. I am part of the State Agricultural Education/FFA staff in California. I began this job twelve years ago after spending twenty-three years as a high school agriculture teacher. I oversee two regions which includes all programs north of Sacramento. This area is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the states of Oregon and Nevada. I drive many miles to support agriculture teachers and FFA members in Northern California. I began raising shorthorn cattle in 1972 for my FFA project. I was hooked from the

shorthorn country = november 2018

beginning and truly enjoy having the cattle. I find it very relaxing compared to dealing the bureaucracy of the state’s education system. I raise the cattle in cooperation with my good friend, Mike Albiani. We have about 55 females currently. Prior to my election to the board the association held the Impact Conference. The first board meeting I attended we identified many goals based on information gathered from members who participated in the Impact Conference. I am proud of several association accomplishments. One goal that we identified was to have a Sire Test that could collect data including carcass and feed efficiency. It was our hope that we would have one in place within five years. Because of member contact the association was able to get one in place in less than a year. It was my pleasure in August to attend a field day at the University of Illinois to learn of the progress of the sire test at to see the cattle on feed. I was impressed with the quality of the cattle and look forward to the data that will be collected when the cattle are harvested. The calves for the second sire test calved in September of 2018. This data is valuable and very time consuming to collect. This has been great progress that can only happen with member involvement. A second goal was to improve member recognition. If you have attended the National Meeting the past two years you have seen the emphasis on member awards. In addition to Show Heifer and Show Bull of the Year awards we now present the Builder of the Breed, Heritage Award and Merit Award. I am proud that our annual meeting has a focus on the members. The third goal is to Develop Better Shorthorn Cattle. I do not know that we can agree on what Better Shorthorn Cattle would be. Much of the cattle industry values data. I hope that we can agree that as a breed we need more data. Our sire tests will produce some valuable data. Each of us as members can help by submitting as much data as possible on our cattle. Now that the BOLT system is functioning we can include new data weekly in generating EPDs. I hope that members are taking advantage of the system. The American Shorthorn Association is in sound fiscal condition. We continue to keep the proceeds from the sale of the Omaha property in reserve. Some day we


shorthorn country = november 2018

may decide to build or buy a building for the Association. The board continues to consider opportunities for a permanent home. The board has not seen this as an urgent need. It has been my pleasure to serve the members of the American Shorthorn Association for the past three years. It would be my honor to continue to serve for the next three years. Respectfully, Hugh Mooney Toby Jordan - Hello, my name is Toby Jordan. I co-own and operate Waukaru Farms, which has farmed since 1895 and registered purebred Shorthorn cattle since 1902 in Rensselaer, IN. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from Oklahoma State University. At OSU, I was a member of the 1996 Livestock Judging Team, which was named National Team of the Year. During college, I worked for Dr. Brad Morgan, gaining experience at beef and pork packing plants while assisting in grading and retrieval of meat samples from test carcass on numerous research projects. I also assisted the Meats Processing Manager, Jake Nelson, at the then new Oklahoma Food and Agricultural Products Research and Technology Center. After college, I was hired as the Show and Sale Cattle Manager

at Pollard Farms LLC in Enid, OK, where I was responsible for all production sales, registrations, performance records, and the breeding, buying, and selling decisions at that Angus operation. At Pollard Farms, I continued to develop the commercial bull market and designed a “buy-back” program for commercial cattle sired by Pollard Farms bulls in order to collect carcass and performance values on sold progeny and increase demand in future bull sales. In 2002, I returned to Rensselaer, Indiana, to Waukaru Farms to manage the cow herd. Today, myself and my wife, Jodi, along with our four children, Jack, Chloe, Charlotte, and Jemma, are integral with the family’s operation of 200 purebred cows and 1200 acres of row crops. The Jordan family hosts the longest running female production sale in Indiana every fall. In the spring, Waukaru’s “The Gathering” markets 50 bulls throughout Canada and US. The inclusion of ultrasound, carcass data, growth information, and genomically enhanced EPDs have been the reason behind the rapid expansion of this market. My father Barry credits me with continued development of Waukaru’s bull market and structuring their annual bull sale, which sends bulls into many purebred and commercial herds throughout the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Australia. I am a solid proponent of continual improvement of cattle with all tools available, including performance data, obtaining carcass data from steer feed-outs

to prove my sires, and honing customer service and marketing savvy. To this end, I have been an active participant in regional grazing seminars, and the annual Beef Improvement Federation convention. I have been a director on the board of the Indiana Forage Council and Indiana Shorthorn Association, where I am the current vice president. Previously, I have been named Young Cattleman of the Year by the Indiana Beef Cattle Association, and represented Indiana on the NCBA Young Cattlemen’s Tour. I have been asked to speak about using technology with beef production in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Argentina, Beef Improvement Federation, and others. I have served on and chaired committees such as the Commercial Marketing Committee for the American Shorthorn Association, International Trade Committee for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Indiana Forage Council, and Indiana Beef Cattle Association. I have judged many state, county and regional cattle shows for several breeds, as well as the Royal National Show in Brisbane, Australia. I believe we are in exciting times with the Shorthorn breed. Many new opportunities have been created and enhanced in the last several years thanks to the leadership of the Board of Directors of the ASA. I would like to help continue the work that has been started and further the use of Shorthorn genetics in the entire beef industry. =

= Junior Corner Saying Thank You As we approach Thanksgiving, we need to reflect on and be thankful for the circumstances and people who got us to where we are today. As I start my final year on the Junior Board, I am overwhelmed by all the opportunities serving the Shorthorn youth has offered me over the past few years. Not only have I been able to connect with breeders and exhibitors from across the country, but the memories I have made are second to none. The miles driven and hours spent have all been worth it because I have had the honor of representing such a great organization that is so much greater than myself. From working the shows or talking to exhibitors and breeders, I wouldn’t want to change anything. This industry truly shows how a diverse world can 24

Danielle ajsa Thompson vice president

come together as one to do what we love the most, and to teach the youth to become the leaders of tomorrow. I take true pride in wearing my coveted red coat, and enjoy every moment I have served on the Junior Board because of all the opportunities it has given me since 2016. Thank you to my wonderful family and friends who have made these past few years some of the best moments of my life, full of memories that I will cherish for a lifetime. As you sit down for your Thanksgiving meal this year, I want to challenge you to thank your parents, siblings, and anyone who has helped you in all of your endeavors. Even more importantly, don’t take a single second for granted. Cherish these moments, and enjoy the opportunities you have been blessed with

= Tartan Plaid Lassie Farewells Wow, it’s already October? I can’t believe my term as the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen is about to be over. It has been such an honor to serve this amazing breed and the people that stand behind it. Yes, this has been the busiest time of my life traveling as well as excelling in my Junior year at Oklahoma State University. No, I would not change one moment about this experience. This will be my ninth year to wear the shorthorn plaid, but my first and only year to wear it as the role I am in as the National Queen. I was extremely nervous after the crowning because I didn’t want to let the breed down or myself. I had high goals and some seemed unachievable due to the distance and the time I would have to take off of school, but I believe I put everything I had into this organization. I can not write this retiring address without thanking the two individuals that suffered through all the long hours and many miles traveled. My parents are the two most selfless individuals you will ever meet and without them I would not have been able to make the impact

that I did. Weekend after weekend and state after state; my parents and I were constantly chasing those white lines. They made this experience 10x better because we got to do it as a family and having that quality time was greatly needed since I moved away from home. I am forever grateful for the amount of time and money they put into me achieving my goals and dreams because without them I would not be who I am today. One year, 17 states, thousands of miles traveled and billions of memories made; I have chased many shorthorn sales and cattle shows while serving as the National Shorthorn Lassie Queen. The best thing about serving this year were the connections I made. I met so many new individuals that shared the same passion as I did with the Shorthorn Breed. Without wearing the costume individuals were able to pick me out from the crowd and that was a great feeling. I loved knowing that I made an impact and a difference in not only the young aspiring queens, but also the

It’s hard to believe that it has been a year since I was crowned National Alternate Shorthorn Lassie Queen and ten years since Wisconsin has had a National Queen! Serving as a queen has provided me with a fantastic learning opportunity. In the past year I have had the pleasure of traveling all around the great state of Wisconsin representing our breed and the cattle industry, then traveled South to Madison, for the National Junior Shorthorn Show and Conference, West to Denver, for the National Western Stock Show and St. Paul for the Minnesota State Fair, North to Kathryn, for Durhams in the Dakotas and East to Louisville, for the North American International Livestock Exposition, where I will end my reign this November! I would like to extend a sincere Thank You to all of you folks that in one way or another have supported me and this journey! First and foremost, I want to thank my family; my parents, David and Becky for their encouragement to take risks and seek new opportunities, for teaching me hard work ethic and high moral standards, for the emotional and financial support. Mom, for taking vacation days and traveling with me, even though I slept most of the time

along the way! Dad, for watching me online and ensuring the credit cards were paid! To my sister Catelyn, thanks for doing extra chores while we were away from the farm. To my friends and advisors, Lisa and Dennis Schlimgen, your commitment and support of the National and Wisconsin Shorthorn Associations and all our members is exceptionally some of the best work anyone has ever seen! Thank You to the Wisconsin Shorthorn Association for the support you have given me throughout this year as a National Queen and during my many years as a junior member. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who has supported the Lassie Program in any way. It has allowed young women to develop great leadership and life skills, many of which can only be taught by the cattle industry! In closing, to all past, present and future Lassies, Shorthorn breeders, and agriculture enthusiasts; here are six important things to remember, as told by one my favorite authors Dr. Suess……. 1. Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you. 2. The more you read, the more things

adults. Serving for me was more than just walking around in the custom and talking to the breeders. It meant so much more because serving at this capacity made it possible for me to share why I did what I did. The costume itself was a lot to talk about and I always received many weird looks, but being able to explain the true meaning behind the plaid was an honor. We are more than just a pretty face and a sparkly crown; we are the image of the Shorthorn Industry and being able to represent that is such an honor. Thank you to everyone who watched my journey and allowed me to serve this breed and organization. I am extremely sad my term is coming to an end, but I hope I made you proud. One AMAZING experience that nothing will ever compare too. =

you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. 3. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. 4. It is better to know how to learn, than to know. 5. Today I shall behave, as if it is the day I will be remembered. And lastly, 6. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory. My heartfelt thanks for a wonderful year! Love, Hannah Olsen National Alternate Shorthorn Lassie Queen, Wisconsin =
