WHR Breeders WHR Assessments for 2019 were sent in November. If you have not received yours, please contact the ASA office as soon as possible. 1. WHR inventory assessments must be completed and paid in full prior to registering calves born in the current assessment period, (i.e. 2019 assessment on a dam must be completed and paid in order to register her calf born in 2019.) 2. Included with each assessment is the registration of a calf born to the dam in the year she was assessed (if calf is registered prior to one year of age) and a free transfer of said calf (if recorded within 60 days from the date of the sale.) (i.e. cost to register a calf born in 2019 to an assessed 2019 dam will be $0, if calf is registered within 12 months) 2019 ASSESSMENT FEE SCHEDULE: March 1 - December 31, 2019 $25 *Calves born in previous year(s) to unassessed dams will incur additional fees as described below

he image of every breed is on display 24-7-365. Meaning every member and breeder have an impact and responsibility to enhance the breed image all day long, every day of the year. There are many avenues of communication, including in-person, phone calls, e-mail and social media. The whole world can see these images which ultimately create a breed image for those not familiar with the Shorthorn breed. With every comment, picture and video, the viewer forms an opinion which reflects not only on the party sharing, but the entire breed. During a committee conference call, we discussed in depth how individual breeders’ presentation of their operations and their products impacts the Shorthorn industry. We must remember that many times, the entire breed may be judged by one person’s visit to a farm, in an ad, a social media post or from a conversation. Purebred breeders have many responsibilities, but one that may be the most important is how our operations and products are displayed 24-7-365. We never know who is looking, posting photos and making assumptions of the breed. These days, we must be continually aware of possibly being photographed at any time. It seems nothing is off limits. This year’s Annual Meeting Forum

topic was determined by the emphasis the committee placed on how member and breeder actions can affect the breed, “Building a Positive Breed Image”. We want to remain aware of our actions and how they affect both our personal operations and the breed. The Forum program has been designed around this topic. The Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet has been moved to November. The dates to mark are Nov. 22 & 23 at the Hilton Airport Hotel in Kansas City, MO. You can register for the Annual Meeting Forum and Awards Banquet on the Shorthorn website. Please make your hotel room reservations separate from registering, by contacting the Hilton directly. More information can be found on the Shorthorn website; https:// shorthorn.org/2019-annual-meetingforum-awards-banquet/. Check page 18 in this issue for a detailed schedule. Panel discussions are planned that will have breeders from the Shorthorn breed and other breeds who will share their success stories and how they perceive activities affecting the “Building of a Commercial Image” and a panel on “Breeders Impact on a Breed”. There will be presentations covering the Iowa State University Heifer Project, Illinois Sire Test, information concerning the new breed promotion by Grant Company, AI Sire procurement from an AI stud and a

feature speaker on “Building Blocks to a Stronger Breed”. We will have ASA Workshops for the DigitalBeef Registry, Performance Programs and Marketing Opportunities. All the Committees will meet, including the 150th Anniversary Celebration planning group. This is two full days packed with activities and great Shorthorn fellowship, with a big social on Friday night and the Pre-Awards Banquet Social Saturday. The Annual Meeting will begin at 2:00 pm on Saturday, Nov. 23. During this meeting is when the new ASA Board of Directors is elected. This will be a fun and educational experience. The highlight each year is the time spent interacting with fellow Shorthorn breeders and enthusiasts. One-on-ones or groups of folks with the same goals - to make the breed Bigger, Better and Stronger! =

Matt director of Woolfolk performance programs

At the Starting Gate When I am struggling to come up with a topic for this column like I was this month, I usually look at the previous month’s article (to make sure I don’t copy it again) and the article from the same month in the previous year; hoping for a topic that was relevant the previous year. My September 2018 article opened with, “To be honest with you, I had a hard time coming up with something to write about for this issue.” I was successful in discovering a pattern: that the September issue is a common time for writer’s block! The best way for me to get rolling in these cases is to start writing what’s on my mind and hope I can tie it back to cattle eventually. That method worked out well for this month. I spent an August weekend in Des Moines with friends at the Prairie Meadows racetrack. It was a fun way to wrap up the summer before heading into the chaos that is fall sale and show season. With everyone on the trip working in purebred cattle marketing, we resigned ourselves to the fact that we won’t be able to get together again until Denver. If you invite someone in our line of work to a social event on a fall weekend, don’t expect them to show up unless it’s your sale day! Horse racing is affectionately known as “The Sport of Kings”, but I’m not sure that moniker really fits. Some of you tune in for the Kentucky Derby or other big races and see the high-class party atmosphere, but you may not realize that everyday horse racing is a blue-collar profession. The barns at Prairie Meadows are full of horsemen trying to make their living winning races. While we all tried to find the next longshot winner, the conversation at the table turned to cattle. One of the guys at the table made the observation, “You know, this sport deals with a lot of the same things that we do in the cattle business.” What followed was a lengthy discussion about some of 14

the similarities in horse racing and the beef cattle business. I’ve outlined some of the biggest commonalities in the rest of this article. Breeding and Genetics: Breeding racehorses is a combination of art, livestock breeding and luck. What makes the Thoroughbred breeding industry much more challenging, is that all matings must be natural service in order to be eligible for registration. Imagine if we had that restriction in the registered beef business! Most of the Thoroughbred breeding in the US is based around Lexington, Kentucky. However, many state Thoroughbred organizations offer special races and incentive programs for horses bred and raced in their state. We watched several races which were open only to Iowa-bred horses while at Prairie Meadows, and they even host a special day of racing to celebrate the Iowa-breds at the end of the season. Similar to our livelihood, it’s important to find a niche for your breeding program where you can fit and be successful. Conformation: I’m not an expert in racehorse phenotype, but one of my friends has some knowledge of what one should look like. He certainly had a “look” or type that he was studying for when the horses paraded out onto the track before each race. It didn’t necessarily help him cash any winning tickets. I think as cattlemen we have a better grasp on what type of animal will be a winner in our herds than the horseplayer at the track. Statistics and Data: Open up a race program and you will find more data than you know what to do with on each race. There are statistics on jockey and trainer performance, as well as recaps of recent past races for every horse in the race. To a novice, it can be a numerical overload, but it can also helpful to find the winning horse and place the right wager. Much akin to our own

shorthorn country = september 2019

performance data, EPDs and selection indexes, the information in a racing program can be beneficial if you know how to use it! Betting Style: Everyone at the track has their own methodology to picking a winner. Some watch the horses in the paddock, while others study the stats in the program. Some play by gut feeling or color of the horse. Regardless, the destination is the same for everyone: to win some money! Study all the different cattle operations out there and you’ll see a similar trend. No two cattlemen go about things exactly the same, even with the same end goal in mind. Compassion: The crowds are not very big at Prairie Meadows, except for the 10 minutes before and during a race. The spectator numbers grow then because all the people who work in the stables make their way over to watch their horses run their race. Grooms, trainers, and other staff all gather near the finish line to cheer on their horses. You can tell that they care deeply for the animals they are responsible for. As soon as every race ended, they bounced into action to cool their horse down and get them back to the barn for post-race care. What may just be “the #5 horse” to the racegoer is a special athlete with a name and a unique personality to the people who care for them, just like we view some of our cow herds. Horse racing has always been one of my favorite sports. After the trip to Prairie Meadows and the discussion of how similar it is to our beloved industry, I think I’ve developed an even deeper appreciation for their business. Midwestern horsemen and cattlemen are a lot more alike than we might think, with both groups made up of dedicated, hard-working people trying to make a living in the industry they love. You also have to be a pretty good gambler to make it in either business! =

Shelby director of youth activities, Rogers director of marketing & communications

Busy Summer The last week in July was packed full of activities. The first few days of the week, I was in Minneapolis, Minnesota for the annual Ag Media Summit. This conference is hosted in a different place each year by the Livestock Publications Council. This year it was hosted in conjunction with the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists and American Agricultural Editors’ Association and there were more than 700 professionals in attendance. Attendees of the conference participate sessions about photography, videography, writing, personal development and more. Many different agricultural publications, associations and agencies are represented so it also provides great networking opportunities between industry professionals. The focus of many of the sessions I attended this year were based on different

writing skills and I can’t wait to use them for future writing projects at the ASA. It was interesting to learn new techniques and how I can make my writing more interesting for feature stories or news articles. AMS provides me with more knowledge and real-life examples to so I can continue to grow professionally with ASA. I look forward to what I can learn next year! After AMS, I headed to Michigan for an ASJA junior board retreat and summer meeting. Once board members arrived in Michigan, we went to Lake Michigan so they all had a chance to visit a Great Lake. The following day the board toured the Byron Center Meats, a USDA inspected custom meat processor. They also visited the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids before heading to the Lake City

Research Center. While at Lake City, they learned about the projects they do with Michigan State University. One project they are currently working on has to do with gas emissions while cattle graze. For the last day, the junior board had their summer meeting to review the 2019 NJSS and begin planning for 2020. They voted on a theme of “Shorthorns & Spurs” for the Abilene, Texas, NJSS on June 22-27. They also made some new changes that will be made public soon! After the meeting, they visited Little Cedar Cattle Co. and talked with Steve and Julie French. It was a great week of learning and activities. It is hard to believe the busy summer is almost over. Soon we will begin fall events and shows, and I look forward to seeing everyone this fall! =

DNA Form Makeover If you’ve submitted DNA recently, you might have noticed a different form on our website. We did a little makeover, if you will, to the form. The new form is less congested, which allows for more room when filling in your animals’ information. Here are some of the updates/changes to the form: - Due to numerous requests, myostatin and horned/polled tests have been added (not required tests) - $5 fee added to any hair OR semen straw samples sent (in accordance with

what the lab charges us) - $5 fee for samples submitted without DNA form - $5 fee for hair samples submitted without hair card- if you need hair cards (or blood cards) just contact the office. They’re free! - If you have started a registration in Digital Beef and ran into a DNA error, check the “Pending Registration” box on the DNA submission form. We can push the registration through once we have the DNA sample in-hand; this way,

there is a registration number to tie to that sample. The lab accepts blood, tissue, semen, and hair samples. Blood and tissue are their preferred sample types. Please download the new DNA form from the ASA website; shorthorn.org. If you have any questions regarding DNA, don’t hesitate to contact the ASA office! =

= Tartan Plaid The Time-Tested Tradition of the Shorthorn Lassie This time of year is often very busy for many of us with county and state fairs wrapping up, to starting back to school or heading off to college and of course, all the fall sale preparations underway. Lassie Queens and Princesses around the nation have also been busy logging many miles assisting in show rings and other Shorthorn events this summer. While the first Lassie Queen may have been crowned over 60 years ago, today’s Lassies continue to represent the Shorthorn breed with great pride and honor just as they did back then. It’s no secret that Lassies grab attention and stand out wherever they go when wearing the Lassie costume. Lassies are often asked why they are wearing their unique outfit. The Shorthorn Lassie Queen costume was selected all those years ago to represent the Scottish heritage our breed originated from. The tartan worn by Lassies reflects that same origin and breed history that means so much to our association today. The tradition of the Lassie costume, while being slightly modified through the years, has continued to set our breed

apart from other breed queens. The Lassies serve as advocates, not only for the Shorthorn breed, but also for the livestock industry through involvement at shows, sales, fundraisers, and other industry events. Due to the tartan costume, many times the Lassies are the first point of contact with the public and are able to use that platform to share their love and passion for the beef industry, while also being positive role models for the Shorthorn breed. Being involved in the Shorthorn Lassies definitely affords the opportunity to make friendships and connections across the nation just as it was intended when the Lassie auxiliary was being formed, while also striving to keep the rich heritage of our organization intact for future generations. Just as the future of our cattle depends on new generations of breeders and showmen, the Shorthorn Lassies depend on future young people to wear the tartan with pride. Seeing the enthusiasm and interest of those in attendance at the Lassie Tea and the Lassie 101 in Lebanon, Tennessee in June, definitely

Emily National Shorthorn Fry Lassie Queen

displayed the bright future of the Shorthorn Lassies. Whether a national or state queen or princess, the Lassie plays an important role for the Shorthorn breed far more than passing out awards or being in backdrop photos. Making connections with and learning from breeders, show officials, judges, other youth and of course, all those future Lassies, is a rewarding experience and a true timetested tradition for a Lassie. Shorthorns have definitely seen changes over the years and Lassies may wear many hats when it comes to their duties, but wearing the Lassie costume is one tradition, the founding Shorthorn Lassies would be proud to see still being continued today.

For the third time in as many years, the Sun Country Shorthorn Sale was hit with a major winter storm. Fortunately, the storm had started to move past by sale morning. This affected the sale day crowd but there was a large number of bidders and buyers on the live internet broadcast. As in many previous years, over 90% of our bulls sold to commercial producers.

This outstanding daughter of Red Rose Gold Spear Ruffian is also a daughter of Anwender’s many times champion female ACC Candy’s Winegum 14W. Several leading breeders were in the bidding war for this female, which was won by A&C Farms in England. She will

be developed as a future donor for their new Shorthorn herd in England. The high selling bull at $10,250, was lot 2, HC Caramba Focus 3F consigned from Horseshoe Creek Farms and Caramba Shorthorns in Ireland.

= Junior Corner Junior Board Retreat and Meeting Success! The Shorthorn junior board had the opportunity to have our summer meeting in Michigan during the last week of July. Upon arriving in Grand Rapids, we went to Lake Michigan to enjoy some water time and lounging on the beach. The remainder of the trip was full of visiting with organizations. We stopped by Byron Center Meats and toured their processing plant and discussed how they encourage marketing among their customers. After that, we attended the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids and took a quick lap around the animal exhibits. My favorite tour, was that afternoon when we stopped by Michigan State Lake City Research Center. During our tour we were able to visit with them about their research project that involves testing cows for the carbon footprint they put into the environment. It was intriguing to learn about the research they do related to

40

grazing, cattle and the environment since that is a major topic in the industry. On the last day, we discussed the pros and cons of Shorthorn Junior Nationals, in hopes to improve minor things to make the experience as best as possible for exhibitors. The conversation continued as we worked together to discuss contests updates and other show updates for the NJSS in Abilene, Texas. We also discussed upcoming fundraisers and came up with ideas for possible donations in the future sales. The meeting was hosted at an old school that was remodeled by the town of Beaverton. Julie French was involved in the process of restoring the building and gave us a tour. That last afternoon, the French’s who own Little Cedar Cattle Company, graciously bought the board lunch and gave us a tour of their farm. I would like to thanks the French’s for their hospitality and helping us have a successful meeting environment to
