We have made it our mission to produce the best Grass-Fed Belted Galloway.

It began with an Unbelievable cow and a bull called Hercules. Unbelievable at 13, Goliath at 2, heavily muscled and well framed is our foundation.

Canadian Galloway Association JUNIOR MEMBERS SHARE Hailey Rose Dawson

SHAK Galloway Farms

Kasey, Mom, Dad, and I went to Binbrook, Rockton, Simcoe and Lindsay Fall Finale. We brought Georgia, Hazel, Hocus Pocus and Josie Girl. I showed Georgia, Hocus Pocus and Josie Girl, my Dad showed Hazel and sometimes Georgia, Kasey showed Josie Girl and Mom was on poop duty. I went in all of the junior shows with Hocus Pocus, and I had lots of fun. All the fairs were awesome but the one that sticks out to me is the Fall Finale. It had lots of animals but not a lot of people. There was only us there with the Galloways but there were a lot of breeds. The Fall Finale is three days long so you can show but also hangout if you’re not showing. I am really excited and hoping to have all of the fairs back next year.

Katherine Bird 2021 concluded my last year as a 4-H member in the Waterloo County 4-H program. This year I had the pleasure of showing Dedmandale Hurricane from Dedmandale Farms, owned by Doug and Shelia Dedman. In all honesty, Hurricane was the best heifer to end off my 4-H career. She had the sweetest temperament and loved to get pampered for an upcoming show. Showing a Galloway heifer this year encouraged me to improve my clipping and fitting skills, as I have never shown an animal with so much hair! Hurricane was shown at six different fairs this past year, including the Waterloo 4-H achievement day, Tavistock Fair, New Hamburg Fair, Drumbo Fair, Ancaster Fair and Erin Fair. Every show was a success and an opportunity to see how a Galloway heifer could give other breeds a run for their money. I am so grateful for the support of the Eastern Canadian Galloway Association and the Canadian Galloway Association. Many dreams would not be possible without your help!

Ayla Kendall Price Hi, my name is Ayla Kendall-Price. I have been showing registered Belted Galloways for almost four years now! I adore the uniqueness, personality, and of course all the hair of this lovely breed of cattle. I’m currently in grade 11, although I accelerated half of my courses in order to graduate a semester early next year. I have been a member of the Two Rivers 4-H Beef Club for six years now. Last March I had the opportunity to take an artificial insemination course at Lakeland College. Only a few weeks after the course I was able to AI my females to Clifton Hercules! My family and I are now expecting three Beltie calves in the early months of 2022! I can’t wait to take my coming three year old cow, Daisy and her calf on the show circuit this season! I hope to continue to grow my herd of Belties in the coming years!

Jessabelle Telenberg My name is Jessabelle Trelenberg, I am 14 years old, I have been in 4-H in British Columbia for 5 years. My “herd” currently consists of one three-year-old cow who is 7/8ths Galloway and 1/8th Angus and is currently bred to Northfield Donald for her 2022 calf and her steer calf. He is sired by a speckled park bull. Last year I showed him as my young beef project and this year I will show him as a market steer then sell him in August at my district 4-H auction. Last year I won Grand Champion Young Beef, Best Groomed Calf, Most Outstanding Member and Most Improved Member in my 4-H club. In my 4-H district I won Reserve Champion Young Beef, Reserve Champion Best Groomed Calf and Reserve Grand Champion Senior Showman. I really enjoy showing because after working so hard on your animal for months you get to show off all of the results of that work. It is also a great opportunity to meet and learn from lots of great people with similar interests to you. In my opinion showing gives you a whole new appreciation for the cattle industry and the breeds that you exhibit because you learn how things have changed over the years and why they have. It may give you some insight into how the industry and breeds may change in the future. It is also a really amazing feeling to essentially shape your animal into the best form of itself with just some sticky stuff and a comb. I really hope to continue to exhibit and promote the Galloway breed for a long time to come. Happy farming! Canadian Galloway Advance 2022

CGA Registration Activity In 2021

Registration activity in the Canadian Galloway Association in 2021 saw a modest increase of 5 in the number of animals registered compared to 2020. There were 326 animals registered in 2020, consisting of 102 bulls and 224 heifers. This number includes 223 solid colour Galloways, 38 Belted Galloways, 13 White Galloways, 44 Riggit Galloways (including several animals previously registered as White Galloways that were reregistered as Riggit Galloways) and 8 Belted Galloway Appendix animals. Of the solid colour animals, 125 were black, 51 were dun and 47 were red. Of the animals registered, 314 were from natural matings, 9 from A.I. matings and 3 by embryo transplant. Of the total registrations, 183 comprising 56%, were from Alberta and 113, comprising 34%, from Ontario, with the remaining 10% coming from the other provinces and the U.S.A. There were 10 registrations in Quebec, 5 in Saskatchewan, 1 in Manitoba and 14 in the U.S.A. The number of transfers was higher by 2 than in 2020, with a total of 162 animals of all types having been transferred. 2 males and 1 female were transferred for export to the Unites States. The membership in the Association for 2021 totaled 87, including 74 senior members, 11 associate members and 2 junior members. Submitted by Ron Black Secretary-Treasurer

Letter From The Organizer

Hello to all Galloway breeders and enthusiasts! I would like to thank you for your patience as it took a bit longer than we had hoped with getting the 2022 Advance produced but hope you enjoy it. It has been a while since the last Advance due to things going on in the world but we hope that those days are behind us. Since being involved with the Galloway family my whole life I’m starting to see a trend that I don’t much care for. Since the introduction of continental breeds to North America, Galloway have slowly seen their numbers get smaller. Just in the last 20 years it feels like we have lost a lot of Galloway genetics. I feel that if something doesn’t change from within that the Canadian Galloway herd will continue to decrease in size despite the breeds still having value for today’s industry. I hope that the association and its members can find new ways to be more active as a whole moving forward. Helping the advancement and promotion of these breeds for the years to come is critical. I look forward to hearing your feedback so we can improve and expand going forward. Yours truly, Brian A. Robertson Canadian Galloway Advance 2022


Biography: Dr. Colin Palmer is an Associate Professor of Theriogenology (Animal Reproduction) at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Originally from Nova Scotia, Dr. Palmer worked in mixed practices in Ontario and British Columbia and has owned/operated a practice in Saskatchewan. Dr. Palmer along with his wife Kim and children Lauren, Emily and Carter run a herd of purebred Red Angus cattle under the KC Cattle Co. name.

Vaccines are a priceless tool for modern livestock production. They are as important to the economic viability of a cattle operation as pesticides are for crop production. Rabies, Blackleg, IBR (Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis), BVD (Bovine Viral Diarrhea), anthrax, bacterial and viral respiratory infections, and numerous other diseases are prevented or lessened in severity because of vaccines. Over the last couple of decades new vaccines have been developed for calf scours, mastitis, and foot rot prevention; however, no less revolutionary has been the improvements with each generation of product targeting the same ol’ cattle diseases that have been with us for decades. Disease causing infectious agents are usually a bacterium or a virus. Germ is a commonly used word for bacteria and viruses; especially ones that cause disease. Molds (fungi) are less commonly involved unless conditions are right to allow their numbers to flourish. Ringworm is a common skin condition in cattle and other livestock caused by select species of ringworm fungi. Parasites are also infectious, but most prefer to quietly steal to survive rather than to cause overt harm. A notable exception might be the coccidia parasite responsible for the bloody diarrhea associated with coccidiosis in cattle. Several types of very small organisms (aka. microorganisms, microbes), mostly bacteria, live within our bodies and are beneficial causing no harm whatsoever. Many of these bacteria assist with digestion, help produce essential nutrients and assist the immune system in the destruction of harmful organisms. The mix of organisms, called a microbiome, residing on our skin, in our noses, in our gut and virtually any where in our bodies is unique to that system and

to the individual. A microbiome is not static. Antibiotics, foods we eat, others we come in contact with, where we live, who are parents were and numerous other factors, many of which we are just now learning about, can all influence a microbiome. Newer technology, such as PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests, have proven to be much more sensitive for identifying organisms in environments that were previously believed to be sterile. Older testing methods relied on culture, which essentially meant that these organisms had to grow in a petri dish under the right conditions, or at the very least had to be detectable by testing methods that required the organism to remain intact. When an infectious agent enters a body, it will move to its preferred site where it will reproduce; provided it has entered through the right system. For example, the gut, respiratory system, or blood. Respiratory pathogens that don’t get inhaled may simply desiccate or dry out on the skin surface. An important concept for understanding disease treatment and prevention is recognizing the difference between viruses and bacteria. Both are tiny, yet viruses are smaller than even the smallest bacterium, only visible with highly specialized microscopes. Bacteria are living, single-celled creatures with an outer protective cell wall and an inner lining protecting the cell’s organ structure. Bacteria can produce their own food and can thrive in a wide variety of environments. Bacteria tend to be opportunistic, feeding on biological debris that is present often from physical damage (cuts, wounds) or damage caused by viruses. Viruses consist of just a thin protein coat covering a small amount of RNA or DNA that represents the genetic code necessary for creating future generations.


To multiply, viruses must attach themselves to living cells taking advantage of their host’s infrastructure. Most viruses are very specific about the types of cells they prefer. For example, blood cells, cells lining the gut, or specific cells within the respiratory tract. Because they can’t reproduce on their own viruses must reprogram the cells they attach to to allow themselves to replicate. Unlike bacteria, viruses invariably behave like pirates exploiting their host cells until the cell dies or bursts. Some viruses may even turn normal cells into cancerous cells. Antibiotics target bacteria, not viruses. Antibiotics have been used to fight disease even when it is known that the cause is a virus with the belief that the antibiotics would help fight a secondary, opportunist bacterial infection, thereby lessening the severity of the disease or even saving the life of the patient. Such use of antibiotics is discouraged in most situations as it contributes to antimicrobial resistance and the development of so-called super bugs. Drugs designed to specifically target viruses seem logical but there are very few antiviral drugs available. Generally, antiviral drugs have a very limited spectrum of use. Our best defense against viruses is prevention of infection and one of our best preventative tools is vaccination.

they are capable of much more targeted attacks then macrophages. T-Lymphocytes may also produce a subclass of themselves called “memory T-cells” which will remain in the body for a period of time ready to defend against that same invader should reinfection occur. T-cells play the predominant role in what is called cell-mediated immunity. B-lymphocytes produce antibodies, also called immunoglubulins, which are large Y-shaped proteins designed to recognize specific antigens (recognizable groups of protein) on the invaders, bind to these antigens, and then interact with other components of the immune system to destroy the invader. Like T-cells, a portion of B-cells will become “memory B-cells” surviving in the body ready to make fresh antibody when the time comes. We all recognize the importance of colostrum to calves, and it is the ready-made antibodies present in colostrum that are absorbed by the calf to help it fight all sorts of infections until it is capable of making its own antibodies. All vaccines are made from taking a piece of the bacteria or virus and modifying it so it will stimulate the production of memory T- and B-lymphocytes that carry forward the ability to fight the invader in the future. Different types of vaccines work in different ways. The diversity of bacteria and viruses dictates that one type of vaccine or vaccine technology is often effective for only select group of organisms. Following vaccination it usually takes a few weeks for the body to produce enough memory cells to offer protection in case infection occurs. Fever and mild sickness are normal – it means the immune system is responding to the vaccine. In most cases, second (booster) vaccinations are required to confer an effective level of immunity with boosters required thereafter at regular intervals. Vaccine manufacturers study the response to vaccines to determine when and for how long an adequate level of protection is sustained. Historically, levels of circulating antibody were measured. Another method involves studying actual disease challenge scenarios. Scientists have recognized that antibody levels may not tell the whole story and a great deal of energy is now being focused on the role of memory cells.

When viruses invade and start to multiply this is called an infection. Left unchecked the virus will proliferate, and symptoms of illness will appear. The earliest symptoms such as fever, headache, tiredness etc. are a direct result of the body’s defense mechanism, the immune system, kicking into action. Fever is not just a sign - a higher body temperature may limit the reproductive capabilities of the invader. The body’s immune system is very complicated and consists of a few modes of defense. The first line is relatively nonspecific; designed to attack anything foreign. Blood consists of oxygen-carrying red blood cells and white blood cells, also called immune cells. There are different types of white cells all designed to fight infection in different ways. Many types of bacterial infection are associated with pus production. The most predominant white blood cell found in pus are neutrophils which can migrate from the blood vessels to site the site of infection where they surround and kill the invaders. Other, Immunology is a very prolific field of scientific larger cells called macrophages swallow up viruses and study that has made some significant gains over the last broken-down cells leaving behind recognizable parts few decades. Many of us owe our lives and livelihoods of the invaders called antigens. B- and T- lymphocytes to the breakthroughs that have been made. are another closely related class of white blood cells. T-lymphocytes attack infected cells in the body; however,
