=Association Outlook

Informed Decisions The success of animal breeders is the result of many related aspects of the industry. It seems like we have to be everything from designers to accountants. We understand that if it is going to get done we have to do it. A cattle rancher who is totally focused on a purebred cattle operation, still divides his or her time, responsibilities and decisions among breeding, feeding, grass management, and promotion as well as many other related areas that add to the success of your operation, regardless of size. The decision process is based on what? Just look at all the operational activities. Let’s make it simple for comparison. If the decision is made to purchase a truck, trailer, tractor or piece of farm equipment, we each do some research. We look up MPG, horsepower and warranty information because it is important that this vehicle can perform properly and efficiently without problems. This takes more time for some than others, but we all go through it before settling on the best option for our particular needs. At the end of this process we write a check for data and research we cannot see in many cases.

The things we can actually see are mostly cosmetic. The color, comfort, radio, other accessories, and that cool design that all companies use to entice us to purchase their product. We justify our decision with a combination of research, data and the looks we prefer to be seen with or that are acceptable for us. Of course, there are some who don’t care about the looks and just make the purchase decision solely on the performance ability for the dollar spent based on the research data available. Let’s look at our cattle operation through the same eyes. We have just gone through a complete evaluation of the options and made a decision on what was best above. If we do not have the data to compare the different options we naturally eliminate that option. Why wouldn’t we want and demand the same information source and data before making breeding decisions for cattle operations? This month in the Shorthorn Country magazine, please take time to read Patrick Wall’s article on Page 14. He is addressing the same topic in a different way. Remember writing that check for options you cannot see when you pur-

chased that vehicle? EPDs mark the first time in our industry that breeders became willing to write a check for something they could not see! This data has evolved with more and more information, traits and related characteristics; the research has proven this data can help us as cattle breeders make better decisions about our genetic designs. This is true whether you are breeding cattle for performance or for show. Cattle perform better and have added value because of this process. Remember we talked about selecting the proper horsepower, efficiency and MPG for that vehicle? We can do the same things with our Shorthorn genetics. This will be even more accurate when the genomic EPDs are in place with new and exciting traits and genes we can evaluate. Our industry, like every industry in the modern world, is moving at a fast pace with technology. We, as Shorthorn breeders, need to look around and understand the need for this data to be attached to our product if we expect our product to be accepted in the industry. The sophisticated, large operations that are potential buyers understand the value of EPDs and use them in their selection process to ensure the resulting animals will perform to their standards for success. We as purebred Shorthorn breeders need to turn in our data and build a data bank for our breed. This data bank will become a driving force for the breed in the future. It is important to understand the importance to be able to brag and advertise the percentage of data in relation to cattle registered. It is important when a junior purchases a female to show, that they have the information to help make the right decision for the future of their young heifer to become a wonderful mother with added value. For the commercial bull buyer, it is important that he is able to evaluate the bulls and make the right decision for a bull that helps him (continued on page 14.)

=FromPasture to Prime Rib Evaluation: The Evolving Role of the Breed Association While farmers and ranchers have always been eternal optimists, they are equally known for tightening their belts when times get tough and margins are tight. Adversity forces them to ask questions they never even thought to ask last year, and demand information they previously ignored. Relative to the beef industry, this situation over the last several decades has turned commercial cowpokes into shade tree statisticians with smart phones strapped to their belts. I was visiting with a local farmer who just happened to be contemplating buying a new bean head for his combine. The dealership told him he was likely losing 2-3% of his soybeans due to wear and tear on the header. He didn’t really want to buy a new head, but he called a “math whiz” friend of his as I was standing there. He asked, “If I’m losing 3% of my beans out the head, how long would it take to pay for a new header at today’s prices?” A few minutes passed, his phone rang, he nodded his head a few times and said “uh-huh,” hung up, and called his dealer to order a new bean head. Imagine if you could find a set of cows that were 3% more efficient than your current herd. When hay is $200 a ton like it has been recently, you would be putting $4-5 in your pocket every time you set out a bale of hay! On 500 momma cows, that’s $9,000 worth of winter feed you don’t have to buy, or 60 bales you don’t have to set out in a given winter! You would also burn that $4

diesel a bit less, chores would end sooner, and your time to enjoy the finer things in life would expand. If you only have 40 cows, that’s still $720 in your wallet. Many large-scale cattle producers no longer drive 400 miles to the Chicago International or the Stockyards in Denver just to look at cattle. They have neither the time, money, or need to do so. Instead, they sit back in their easy chair and thumb through semen catalogs, sale books, breed magazines, and surf the internet for the necessary information that decides the direction of their herd. They know what pads their pocket books and where to find it. The beef breed association was originally tasked with simply printing a piece of paper that tracked lineage. Breeders could then go find the pedigrees that seemed to work in their program. When Dr. Dick Willham at Iowa State proved that a smaller bull in a pen would have heavier calves than a bigger bull in the same pen with the dawn of EPDs, the game changed. Breed associations cooperated with the university system to generate genetic profiles (EPDs) that were added to the pedigree information. Since a lot of this work was subsidized by university extension programs, added costs were held to a minimum. But again, producers and bull buyers had the tools they needed to evaluate cattle. Consumers then clearly indicated that they were willing to pay a lot more for Choice and Prime steaks…bring on structured carcass evaluations, ultra-

sound technology, and even online grading. The game changed again, and breeders and bidders wanted to know what was underneath the hide as much as their performance records. By this time, extension funding was beginning to dry up. The breeds that embraced the movement, regardless of the cost, and continued to expand the scope of “evaluation” surged. Those that didn’t feel the consequences. Feel free to insert your own political views here on how or why this happened. Now, many breeders and buyers believe that hybrid bulls offer more heterosis and profit potential than purebreds. They also have a heightened interest in the future of genomics, aka DNA. When the science can prove that there is more profit in understanding bits of the bovine genome, look out! I strongly believe that Shorthorn has a place in the composite arena, and industry trends currently favor the strong points of the breed. The American Shorthorn Association is working diligently to provide you and your customers with the necessary cutting edge “evaluation” tools for success and positioning the breed to be ready to embrace new applied technologies that come down the pipe. But, rest assured, they won’t be the ones your grandpa used. Stay tuned. =

genetics in the direction that makes their product more valuable to the entire industry. Don’t forget to go look at them either. Remember the cosmetics and the value you place on looks mentioned at the beginning of this article? Yes, color, style and quality become part of the selection process, but there was no need for cosmetics until the needs of the performance has been evaluated. How important is this? Well look at all those decisions I mentioned at the beginning of this article. Now, think about how much control you really have over all your activities in your cattle

operation. The cost of feed is fixed; labor costs are fixed for the most part if we want the right kind of help and the cost of any insurance needed is pretty well fixed. The cost of vehicles and equipment is a fixed cost to you as well. It all has a fixed cost that you have to pay in order to have it and use it. The only control we really have is the selection of the genetics we use. Now that becomes a very important decision. So, why wouldn’t we want as much research data and information we could possibly have when making those extremely important decisions? =

Sullivan Farms

to Donate Foundation Heifer In the Shorthorn breed, youth have no limits on the opportunities they are constantly being offered, especially when it comes to the National Junior Shorthorn Show. The weeklong event has created several opportunities for youth to become involved in the breed to participate in leadership activities, contests and network with others who share common interests in promoting the breed. John Sullivan of Sullivan Farms, has recognized the passion youth have for showing cattle and being a part of the Shorthorn breed and has developed a drive from his own experiences to strengthen the junior program. From this, Sullivan Farms has elected to donate the second Foundation Heifer for the Leading a Legacy Sale coming up in October. The heifer offered comes from a strong line of genetics in the Shorthorn breed as she is progeny of SULL GNCC El Dorado and GCC Augusta Pride 3127. “I wanted to offer a female that

could be a great breeding piece as well as benefit the juniors,” he said. The Foundation Heifer will lead off as lot one again this year in the Leading a Legacy Sale. Consisting of 20 unique lots, 100 percent of the proceeds from the live auction will go towards the National Junior Shorthorn Show – 50 percent will go towards the 2014 event in Kentucky and 50 percent will go to the 2015 event. Those in attendance for last year’s sale will be happy to know that a “Casino Night” will follow the auction, providing everyone with the chance to support the juniors and have some fun at the same time! There has also been mention of celebrity appearances by Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe. New this year at the sale will be the Stock Show Confidential filming crew with celebrity Terry Jordon himself. They will broadcast the junior fundraiser live and will also feature the event in a segment on cattle production

Creating an atmosphere where everyone can participate and help build a foundation for the future of the Shorthorn breed, is a main goal of Leading a Legacy. “I’ve really seen our association put more emphasis on wanting to grow the junior program the last couple years and rightfully so,” Sullivan said. “We have a lot of demand for juniors to be involved.” Sullivan feels strongly about getting youth involved not only in livestock

projects, but the junior Shorthorn program for several reasons. He realizes that the youth will be the leaders of tomorrow, not just in Shorthorns, but across the board in American agriculture in positions such as feedlot operators, agriculture education teachers, research faculty at universities and pharmaceutical salespeople, just to name a few. He wants to have as many of these people possible with Shorthorn backgrounds. Teaching kids about real life experiences also plays a huge part in Sullivan supporting youth in the livestock industry. “With livestock, you learn about success and failure because you cannot control a lot of issues,” he said. “It applies to a lot of different things in life.” Sullivan brings these same ideas to both Sullivan Farms and Sullivan Supply and is always looking for new ways to support youth. Recently implemented was the Sullivan Supply Scholarship Program which offers $20,000 in scholarships to youth involved in livestock. According to Sullivan, there were approximately 1,200 applicants this past year. Stock Show University is another program that teaches youth about their livestock projects and gives them the opportunity to get comfortable and get their confidence so that they can

succeed. He wants to give juniors as many opportunities as he can and says him and his brothers had to learn from the “school of hard knocks” growing up on their dad’s small farm as they were figuring out the finer features of showing cattle or what he refers to as “paying tuition” until they got the hang of it. Getting started in the Shorthorn breed was easy for Sullivan as he had always liked the females and admired how the cattle were so sound coupled with the maternal ability and eye appeal. He said he was also drawn to the tremendous amount of cow families that breed consistent and true. Another draw to the breed was after his nephew James had attended a few Shorthorn junior nationals and really enjoyed them. Since then, the Sullivan Family has become a part of the Shorthorn family. He brags on his fellow competitors within the breed as his best friends, which he thinks is unique for any breed of cattle. Sullivan believes he’s pretty fortunate to have his own family involved in the industry. He and his wife Dede have two daughters, Sara, 11 and Sage, 4. He could tell at a young age that Sara had a natural liking for animals and says now he’s starting to see the same with Sage. “Dede and I have talked about it a

lot that we want their interest in cattle to happen naturally,” he said. “Whatever their interests are, I want to be supportive. That’s very important to me.” Coordination of the buyers of the first donation heifer sold in last year’s sale was made successful by Fred Ripberger of Sidell, Ill. The American Junior Shorthorn Association (AJSA) would like to thank Ripberger for his efforts in supporting the Shorthorn youth and the National Junior Show. Gwen Crawford added “Without the help of Fred Ripberger our First Leading A Legacy sale would not have been near as successful. It was Fred’s way of helping out the youth and we appreciated it more than he knows. It just goes to show what kind of people we have supporting our Juniors and our many programs, and I couldn’t be more proud of our organization and the individuals involved in it.” The Sullivan Family invites you to join them on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at Sullivan Farms in Dunlap, Iowa for the Leading a Legacy Sale. A complimentary prime rib meal will be served at 6:00 p.m. with the auction starting at 7:00 p.m. followed by the “Casino Night”.

= Beef Business Great State Feedout Recap The Fourth annual Great State Feedout (GSF) is in the books and proved to be the most challenging year thus far for the retained ownership program. Higher than average feed costs and record feeder calf prices in the fall made profit hard to find at closeout time for several groups of cattle. This year marked the first time of the program that retained ownership did not pay off. However it is worth noting that three out of the last four years retained ownership has proved very profitable for those who participated in the program. Nine operations consigned 114 steers and 40 heifers to be fed at the TriCounty Steer Carcass Futurity Feedlots in Lewis, Iowa. A huge thank you to the following operations for your continued support of the GSF: Waukaru Farms, Bowman Superior Genetics, Peak View Ranch, Ryan & Danny Galbreath, The Smithers Family, Millvale Shorthorns, Gary Hansen, Kelly Klein and David Wiwi.

In the feedlot the cattle continued to perform well posting an overall average daily gain of 3.25 lbs. per day with an average feed to gain of 6.45. The average feed cost of gain for the cattle was $99.55 and an overall cost of gain of $119.82. The Shorthorns continued to excel in docility with an average disposition score of 1.6 (scale of 1-6) in the feedlot. On the rail the cattle had an average final weight of 1,153 pounds and were harvested on average at 411 days of age. The entire group was 66% low choice or better with an average marbling score of a small 24. The average Ribeye Area was 11.9 sq. in. which gives the entire group an average REA/CWT of 1.68. The group was harvested with an average backfat of .47 inches while averaging a 2.7 Yield Grade (YG). There were nine carcasses stamped YG 4 by the grader, several of these were heifers that were to light to be harvested at the first sort. Breaking the group by sex the 114 steers had an average daily gain of 3.35 lbs. per day and a final weight of 1,191 ShorthornShop is pounds.

throughout the fall. As I write this article I am returning from a great weekend of fun, fellowship and education after the annual Shorthorn University tour. It is an event that I would encourage every Shorthorn breeder take in. The bus ride itself is worth the price of admission with a great chance to discuss cattle and the Shorthorn breed in general. The biggest issue that consistently came up in conversation with attendees was how to address the calving ease and birth weight issues. For me this is still the biggest thing the breed needs to address moving forward. The good news when looking at BW and CE EPDs over the last several years is that both of those traits are trending in the right directions. This is great to see and I hope this progress continues, but there is still improvement to be made. Often people are too quick to blame the bulls for their calving issues year in and year out. As breeders it’s easy to move away from a sire after having a train wreck. At the same time let’s not forget that the female also contributes 50% of her genetics to the equation as well. Simply swearing off the bull and never using him again won’t completely fix the problem if you forgot about the five replacement females he sired in the keeper pen. This is just adding the problem back into your herd and allowing it to stare you in the face for many years to come. The fastest way to get away from these genetics and make the most improvement in the shortest amount of time is to look at the female side of the equation. Researching the females in a herd one might be surprised how stacked some of these lines are for high BW’s and super negative CE EPDs. To truly make progress you as a breeder need to be more mindful of the females selected to put back in the replacement pen. Weaning time will be here before we know it and maybe this should be the year to take into account birth weight and calving ease scores before making your replacement heifer selections. The fastest way to solve this problem is stop making excuses and cull these females before they have a chance to influence your herd for generations. =

Fundraising As you page through the September edition of Shorthorn Country, fall is starting to set in and we start to look forward to the fall sale season as we turn the page towards selecting next year’s show string. The juniors will be turning a similar page this fall as we begin to raise funds for the 2014 National Junior Shorthorn Show & Youth Conference to be held in Louisville, Ky. In the same regards the Junior Association is also redirecting the way that we are fundraising this fall. Even though it may not feel or look like winter right now, we are currently organizing our first “Deck the Stalls” fundraiser at NAILE instead of Funding the Future

auction at Junior Nationals. The Junior Board will be selling raffle tickets that can be put into multiple different stockings to qualify to win items that best fit you and your family (as well as the chance to get people crossed off your Christmas shopping list). Tickets will be available for purchase on Saturday after the ShorthornPlus show is completed. For those interested in donating, don’t hesitate in contacting myself or one of the other eight Junior Board members, Gwen Crawford, as well as Julie French, 2014 Junior National Fundraising Chair, who is assisting with this fundraiser. Junior Nationals is a very large and important event to a

large number of our youth. We would not be able to put on this show without the financial support of sponsors and donors. Since I was recently elected, looking at the list of sponsors and donors of the 2013 Junior Nationals for the first time it made me feel overwhelmed because of the widespread support we get across our Shorthorn breed. With every “Thank you” that I wrote to sponsors, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for the great breeders of this association for supporting our Junior programs. As we look back on the success of this past summer we must turn the page to next year’s Junior Nationals in Louisville, Ky. =

Juniors Unlock Leadership Potential at KEY Conference in East Lansing, Michigan. by Blaire Boyer & Laura Pifer

Michigan State University welcomed twenty-six members of the American Junior Shorthorn Association to the campus in East Lansing, Michigan. These members represented nine states to take part in the 2013 Knowledge Empowers Youth Conference which took place July 26 through July 28. Participants focused on increasing their leadership skills, meeting other junior members and expanding their knowledge of the beef industry. The conference began in 2006 with the first event held at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind. KEY promotes leadership skills, beef industry knowledge as well as networking and building friendships. “KEY Conference is a time for them to get together as youth and they find different ways to bond by the team building and leadership skills that we do,” said Gwen Crawford, ASA Director of Junior Activities. While most of the participants have a common bond of Shorthorn cattle, this is a time for them to connect as individuals. “The thing I like the most about KEY Conference is it’s a chance for these kids to get together and not have their cattle there so they don’t have other responsibilities and they can focus solely on themselves and what they can take from it,” Crawford said.

34

This year’s conference began with a number of icebreaker activities that allowed juniors to become more acquainted with one another. After the introductory sessions youth toured Michigan State’s Breslin Center and saw several trophy cases, practice basketball courts and the main basketball court. From there, juniors were introduced to the animal science building. Michigan State University Animal Science staff presented a session about meat science including proper handling of meat, differences among cuts and how to calculate ribeye area, quality grade and yield grade. KEY participants were able to get hands on experience evaluating carcasses and then toured the state-of-the-art meats lab facilities. An ice cream social sponsored by MSU Department of Animal Science was provided after the tour and lunch at the school’s cafeteria followed. Leadership activities were in full swing in the afternoon led by former

shorthorn country = september 2013

AJSA member, Christine SisungHeverly. The group engaged in various activities that focused on leadership, communication and teamwork. Individuals were challenged to continue building these skills through group activities such as creating flotation devices from drinking straws in competition to hold the most pennies without sinking and discussed qualities a leader should possess. One of the most important issues facing the beef industry is informing and educating the public of what it actually entails. After an energizing meal in the university’s cafeteria for dinner, participants jumped into a beef advocacy program presented by MSU staff. Participants were asked to establish short elevator speeches about the cattle industry to fit everyday scenarios they could face. An elevator speech is a short sound-bite that gets the message across to the audience in a limited amount of time. The speeches included facts and personal stories from each junior member. MSU staff personnel Julie Thelen and Adam Conover provided feedback after each round of speeches and discussions. Awards were given to the group that did the best job communicating their thoughts and information from the scenario. Participants rounded out the day with a fun night of laser tag, glow


golf and bumper cars at Zap Zone in East Lansing. A charter bus was loaded early Saturday morning and juniors were headed to MSU Lake City research facility to listen to Ben Bartlett, DVM and Dr. Jason Rowntree, Assistant Professor, Beef Cattle and Forage Utilization. Bartlett’s presentation addressed the importance of low stress livestock handling. The goal of low stress livestock handling is to make livestock handling enjoyable, reduce stress and injury for people and animals, said Barlett. He told juniors to appreciate the role they provide as a caretaker and keep profit as part of the plan. To see the low stress handling in work, the group was shown the facilities at Lake City and the equipment used specifically for the welfare of the animals. Bartlett demonstrated correct actions to take when moving cattle as an example with four heifers. After a quick lunch, the group took a hayride through pastures to learn about grazing management with Dr. Rowntree. He demonstrated how to collect soil samples and the best land practices for cattle forage. Rowntree

also shared the goals for Lake City which are to be forage based, low input and utilize the facilities as teaching methods for students. The group spent the evening at Little Cedar Cattle Company where Steve and Julie French welcomed them to their farm. In addition to KEY Conference participants, the Michigan Shorthorn Breeders Association also had members present to interact with junior members. While there, the juniors participated in a small judging contest where Jake Alden, ASA Field Services Representative, and Montie Soules, ASA Executive Secretary/CEO, served as contest officials. After the meal winners were announced and prizes awarded. Ashley Vogel, Hartley, Iowa won the contest and Connor Bollum, Austin, Minn., was second. Before departing Little Cedar, the French’s gave the group a tour of their restored bunk house that serves as their guest house. Upon the return to campus,

Crawford led the group in a time of reflection and motivation for the future. Each participant was challenged to write down goals, bucket list items and things they were thankful for before leaving the conference Sunday morning. A special thank you goes to Michigan State University for hosting the conference and helping to arrange events and speakers and Little Cedar Cattle Company for hosting the Saturday evening events and meal. Additionally, thank you to Julie French, Tara Miller and Carla McLachlan for helping coordinate the events, and Christine Sisung-Heverly for presenting the leadership activities. The conference would not have been as successful without the extra help and hard work of Theresa Sisung. Juniors, get excited and watch for the 2014 details at www.juniorshorthorn.com for updates on junior activities and how you can become more involved in the AJSA. =
