Focus on FUNCTION

We have a small, but great set of bulls ready to go to work! 3 of the top 4 bulls in the Simbrah division in the Rio Grande Valley Performance Bull Test were bred by 6G Ranch including the Top 2 bulls in their division. We continue to focus on producing moderate functional cattle that are changing with the beef industry. Many thanks to Ishee Simmentals for offering outcross options that are backed by years of planned matings. Call us if you are in need of a herd sire or bull for your commercial operation that is focused on economics!

Many thanks to the Eilers Family from Brenham for their purchase of an outstanding set of replacement heifers that represent some of our most productive cow families! The Eilers are positioning themselves to produce top end Simbrah that will be functional and backed by championship genetics.

We have a great set of babies that are awaiting their next home! The pasture has several AI sired babies that are looking for a junior and a halter, and this crop is filled with power & performance. We also have a great set of ¾ X ¼ females and steers that are focused on power & performance.

Looking for polled, outcross genetics? We have a small set of replacement heifers that offer some interesting polled, outcross genetics for the breed! These cattle are sired by a polled, Fleckvieh bull and their dam was a 3/8 x 5/8 female sold to Hollis Keene in Louisiana. We are looking for big things out of this group of females in the future.

SAFE HANDLING EQUATES TO Profitability

THERE

OFTEN FOUND ON T-SHIRTS AND SIGNS THAT SAYS, “I LOVE YOU, EXCEPT WHEN WE ARE WORKING CATTLE.”

While the sign is meant to garner a few chuckles, it hits home with a lot of people. No matter who you are working cattle with – your spouse, your children, your help or by yourself – it more often than not turns into a stressful event that can jeopardize the safety of those working cattle and the cattle themselves.

Loading cattle on a trailer, into a chute, rounding them up in a pasture and more can seem simple enough, until it’s not. However, there are actions and considerations producers can take to create a safe and positive experience for all, including the livestock.

Kevin Thompson, research center director at the Middle Tennessee UTAgResearch and Education Center, says good handling practices start long before the day of working cattle. “Be present with your herd and don’t expect any movement from them. Ride your horse out in the pasture frequently enough so that the cattle are used to your presence and don’t turn up their tail and run the minute they see you and your horse coming,” he said.

LOADING CATTLE ON A TRAILER

Jason Duggin, beef extension specialist with the University of Georgia, said, “Loading cattle is often the riskiest part of working cattle because of the handler’s exposure when closing cut gates and the uniqueness of trailer noises that can turn cattle back on a handler very abruptly. The ideal option for loading cattle is through a single file, loading alleyway. This allows for handlers to apply pressure and use an animal’s point of balance as they pass by the shoulder of the animal. It also allows for the handlers to be in a safer position for flighty cattle that may become aggressive in a loading situation, as they are less able to turn back on handlers.”

Thompson echoed this sentiment and said the highest incident of injuries occur when loading cattle. “I believe it is because you are more stressed at the time and put extra pressure on the cattle,” he continued. “If you are loading cattle it is because you are moving them or selling them, which can both create stress subconsciously. The key to safely loading cattle is to learn how to control your own stress level as the cattle pick up on your stress.”

Thompson further explained that there is an art to applying and releasing pressure when working cattle. He said the science of applying and releasing pressure gives cattle time to think and visualize what they are going into (be it a chute or trailer). “Depth perception is a big thing for cattle and when you push them onto a trailer that is going to be darker than the alley they are in, it can create caution in cattle,” he continued, “Often times we push them too fast and then they balk and turn the opposite direction. It’s important to take your time and allow them to sniff and visualize the trailer and once one loads, the rest should follow suit with little added pressure.”

Duggin pointed out that it is not until someone is injured that we appreciate the importance of safety. “The key to safety is thinking ahead in regard to possible danger spots and talking about them with your family or crew. Some of the most obvious points of caution are swinging gates, which are an essential part of loading or getting cattle to an alley. Having sufficient sturdy gates at critical areas in alleyways and pens is vital to safety, and at the same time, gates can be very dangerous when kicked back toward the handler. I always remind producers to close gates with extreme caution when cattle are in close quarters to avoid gates being kicked back into the handler’s face.”

UNDERSTANDING PRESSURE POINTS

Cattle are herding animals, but most likely when you head to the pasture to begin rounding them up and working them, they will be spread out and grazing.

“We need to be mindful that cattle’s comfort is found in being with the herd. We can use their pivot points to direct them – as a group – toward the exit point of the pasture,” Thompson shared. “I always like to have someone pushing the group from behind, someone who stays along the side of the herd and I depend on a well-built fence for the third pressure point. This allows you to safely control speed and direction as you gather your herd. The side person is the strongest link in this scenario as cattle will tend to spread out when moving.”

SHE LEADS BY EXAMPLE

IF YOU DO AN INTERNET SEARCH FOR THE WORD LEADER , YOU FIND WORDS AND PHRASES LIKE A LEADER IS SOMEONE WHO INSPIRES PASSION AND MOTIVATION IN OTHERS; A LEADER IS SOMEONE WITH VISION AND THE PATH TO REALIZING IT; BEING SUPPORTIVE AND HELPING TEAM MEMBERS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS. THEN THERE IS, “TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE” WHICH IS SHOWING OTHERS HOW TO PROCEED. TAKE YOUR PICK, BUT REGARDLESS, JUNIOR SIMBRAH EXHIBITOR, HALLIE HACKETT HAS PROVEN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE LEADER ON LOCAL, STATE AND NATIONAL LEVELS .

The graduating senior is from Hooks, Texas, which is located in far northeast Texas. She is very active in her school and community. She is a Texas FFA Area VI Vice-President, your current Texas Junior Simmental/Simbrah Association President and Queen and an American Junior Simmental Association South Central (AJSA) Region Trustee. She also serves as a Texas Beef Ambassador through the Texas Cattlewomen.

Hallie has always shown Simbrahs and her desire to be a leader in SimGenetics evolved as her participation has increased. While her days are coming to an end in the junior show rings, her involvement in agriculture is just beginning. Hallie will be attending Texas A&M University to major in animal science and she has her sights set on a career as a veterinarian. Hallie recently was selected as a Welch Foundation Scholar, which has earned her a full ride scholarship to A&M.

She is quick to promote school ag programs as an amazing opportunity for young people. “There are so many chances for students to learn new things and experience things that will help them later in life. Contests, leader positions and ag classes allow students to be able to discover possible careers, meet new people and learn life skills,” she said.

She readily acknowledges that her animals have been instructors in her life, teaching her responsibility, time management, perseverance, while providing financial experiences and requiring hard work.

Like a good leader, she recognizes she has a strong support system starting with her parents, Aaron and Shelley Hackett. She is also grateful to Simbrah breeders, Dr. Mark and Martha McCrary, who have bred the heifers she has exhibited and encouraged her involvement in the breed since day one. She points out that youth in SimGenetics and Texas

PAGE 16 Spring, 2023• SIMBRAH World
Hallie has been showing Simbrah since she joined 4-H and has continued showing the breed throughout her 4-H and FFA competitions.

youth livestock exhibitors are very blessed to have many, many people who back these organizations financially and with their time as volunteers.

She also knows that she is in a role model position, as she serves in these three SimGenetic leadership position and embraces it. She said that she was largely influenced by others in these positions and they were influential in her decision to lead and serve.

Simbrah World caught up with Hallie and asked her a few questions.

What drew you to the cattle industry?

My father had been involved in the cattle industry long before I was born. When my brother and I were little, neither of us wanted to show, so my father dispersed all of the cows that he owned. Not long after that, I found a magazine in our kitchen with a girl showing on the cover. After about a year, I convinced my father to finally let me show, and the rest is history. Since then, I have become much more dedicated to cattle, the agricultural industry, and increased my involvement in related associations. Growing up in these associations has shown me that showing cattle is much more than being in the ring and that has encouraged me to be involved and to my part to strengthen each organization.

What drew you to the numerous leadership positions you hold?

The longer that I was involved in the junior associations, the more that I grew to appreciate the leadership within it. Many of my best memories revolve around those that were in the same positions that I have held. As I became older, I realized that I wanted to be able to give back to the associations that had helped me become the person that I am today. The positions themselves have been a wonderful opportunity for me to connect and encourage other juniors within our junior associations.

What is your time management secret?

I am a big planner! I keep a calendar with all of my upcoming events and schedule of shows, contests and other events. Having “A & B” days throughout high school has also helped in that I am not necessarily missing every class each day I am out, which has also helped to prepare me for college. My parents have always been “checklist” or “to do list” people so it came naturally. I also have been raised in a household that was no nonsense when it comes to getting your business handled. If I didn’t keep up with my classwork my parents made it clear I would not be attending events.

What would you tell other Simbrah youth why they should go to AJSA Classic?

I would tell other Simbrah youth that going to the National Classic is a wonderful experience. Being able to make connections with other juniors across the country is exciting and creates lasting friendships. The AJSA Classic is also a perfect opportunity for juniors to represent the Simbrah breed. Considering the Simbrah breed is small in numbers compared to the Simmental exhibitors, our juniors must show up to prove how strong the Simbrah breed is. This

event provides a learning experience through contests and opportunities for leadership throughout the week. Most importantly, nationals is a fun way to grow your passion as an exhibitor, meet new people, strengthen bonds with old friends and learn new things.

What’s been the most enjoyable thing about this year and being in these three leadership positions?

Although I have been incredibly busy this year, I enjoy getting to go to so many places, do so many things and meet so many new people. These positions have allowed me to expand on my own leadership skills and become more confident in my own abilities, in and out of contests. Being able to attend so many events has kept me busy, but I wouldn’t want to be doing anything other than being involved with the cattle industry.

Tell us about your beef ambassador position and why that was important for you to be involved in?

The Texas Beef Ambassador position allows me to advocate for the beef cattle industry through social media posts and in-person advocating events. Being a beef ambassador has been an amazing way for me to share information about the industry that I love and help other people become more knowledgeable about beef. I try to advocate for the industry no matter what I am doing, so becoming a beef ambassador was something that I really wanted to do, not only to advocate, but to develop my ability to communicate.

Hallie is currently serving as the Texas Junior Simmental/Simbrah Association President and Queen and American Junior Simmental Association South Central Region Trustee.

He goes on to warn that more often than not, things go south when the herd nears the exit point because we tend to get excited that we made it that far and apply too much pressure, which creates nervousness in the herd and we lose control. In turn, this creates stress in the herd and that stress will carry over as you work cattle.

“Safety is first and foremost vital for those working cattle, but the safety of the animal is the next priority. We never want to create stress or injury for our livestock and that benefits our bottom line as well. We spend a lot of money on semen, feed and vaccines; when you increase the stress level of your animal, we see breeding rates, feed efficiency and vaccine efficiency decrease,” Thompson pointed out.

Working cattle doesn’t have to be a stressful event or a complicated game. As Thompson said, if we can practice low stress livestock handling, it allows us, as producers, the opportunity to better enjoy working our cattle and the opportunity to participate in value added programs as a result of the better working relationship we have with the herd and those we work with.

General Tips for Working Cattle

Keep talking/noise to a minimum when working cattle, especially flighty cattle.

Avoid the heat of the day when working cattle. Chutes should have exits that flow toward an area that the cattle are generally drawn toward such as the directions from which they came, but the exit area should also be free of anything that might deter cattle flow such as vehicles, dogs, 4-wheelers and walls to reassure the safety of the exit point for the herd.

Avoid blind spots. Cattle cannot see directly behind them and a handler that is in that blind spot is more likely to get kicked. Generally, handlers should be 20 to 30 degrees away from the blind spot, left or right.

Do not overcrowd corrals, working tubs or chutes to avoid injury and stress.

Pen riders and handlers are key players in the safety of your crew and your herd. They determine the stress level of the animal and can keep cortisol levels low.

Become BQA (Beef Quality Assurance) certified to learn proper protocols.

breeding PIECE!

We’ve added this beautiful and functional polled purebred Simmental to our program. She will be utilized across the board in SimGenetics. She’s a daughter of Revolution, and she will be bringing us a calf by WLE Smith Big Wig later this spring.

Analyze her—extra bold in her rib, wide topped and stout hipped, plus you can’t deny that attractive front end on this baldy!

Stay tuned — we think she’s going to be a force in SimGenetics.

CATTLEFAX FORECASTS PRODUCER PROFITABILITY IN 2023

The popular CattleFax Outlook Seminar, held as part of the 2023 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show in New Orleans, shared expert market and weather analysis.

Prices and profitability will again favor cattle producers in 2023. The cattle industry is entering 2023 with the smallest cattle supply since 2015 as drought caused the industry to dig deeper into the supply of feeder cattle and calves. While the exact path to drought relief is unknown, improvements are also expected to translate to moderating feed costs, especially in the second half of 2023. Combined with increased cattle prices, cattle producers, especially the cow-calf operator, will continue to see an improvement in margins for the next several years, according to CattleFax.

Meteorologist Matt Makens said the latest forecast for La Niña has only a 14% probability of existence this spring and down further by the summer, which means a pattern change comes our way this year. A neutral phase will take control of the pattern as La Niña weakens and may last several months before giving El Niño a chance to grow this summer and into the fall.

Kevin Good, vice president of industry relations and analysis at CattleFax, reported that U.S. beef cow cattle inventories have already fallen 1.5 million head from cycle highs. The 2023 beef cow herd is expected to be down about another million head to nearly 29.2 million.

“Drought affected nearly half of the beef cow herd over the last year, exacerbating the liquidation in 2022. Drought improvement and higher cattle prices should drastically slow beef cow culling through 2023,” Good said.

Feeder cattle and calf supplies outside of feedyards will be 400,000 to 450,000 head smaller than 2022 at 25.1 million. After being full for most of the past three years, cattle on feed inventories are expected to begin 2023 at 300,000 to 400,000 head below last year, at 14.3 million head, and remain smaller. Commercial fed slaughter in 2023 is forecast to decline by 750,000 to 800,000 to 25.6 million head.

“With drought forced placement and culling, beef production was record large in 2022 at 28.3 billion pounds. Expect production to drop over the next several years – declining 4% to 5% in 2023 to 27 billion pounds,” Good said. “The decline in production in 2023 will lead to a 2.2-pound decline in net beef supply to 57 pounds per person.”

Good forecast the average 2023 fed steer price at $158/cwt., up $13/cwt. from 2022, with a range of $150 to $172/cwt. throughout the year. All cattle classes are expected to trade higher, and prices are expected to continue to trend upward.

When looking at domestic beef demand, the U.S. economy will be a driving factor going in 2023. CattleFax said inflation, rising interest rates and general economic uncertainty will continue to impact consumer purchasing decisions as many look to limit spending. Inflation reached a 40year high in 2022, triggering the U.S. Federal Reserve to raise interest rates seven times last year with intentions for further rate increases until inflation falls. Through the Federal Reserve hopes to accomplish a “soft landing” and avoid recession, the U.S. economy is expected to slow in 2023 with most economists calling for a mild recession in the second half of the year.

Global protein demand has continued to rise around the world and tighter global protein supplies should broadly support prices in 2023. After more than 20% of growth across the last two years, U.S. beef exports are expected to moderate, declining 3% in 2023 to 3.5 billion pounds. Japan and South Korea remain the top U.S. beef export destinations with stable exports in 2022. Meanwhile, Chinese demand has continued to grow with tonnage up 20% last year, likely with continued room to grow.
