Herefords Today Summer 2012  19


You Ought To Know. . . Egos versus economics … have created a lot of financial woe for livestock producers. COOL (Country of Origin Labeling) has proven to be a ‘big farce!’ What is most amusing, is the fact that R-CALF supporters who lobbied to close borders and shut down trade, are now buying forage from Canadian producers … the same producers they tried to exclude or shut out. The past four hot and dry months in the United States and Eastern Canada have put a different light on the agricultural picture and its markets. The lack of rainfall will undoubtedly put pressure on markets, as grain prices have spiked. The shortage of livestock inventories coupled with high feed prices will be felt in consumer spending. The price of beef over the counter has risen and will continue to rise, but the average consumer does not realize that the drought in the Corn Belt will push the price of Coke and a box of Frosted Flakes much higher, in comparison, to a pound of ground beef. Most areas of Eastern Canada look like Roundup was sprayed from the sky; yet Western Canada enjoys a rosy picture with abundant rain fall and very promising crops and forage. During my travels this past summer, the only grasshopper I’ve seen was west of Renfrew, Ontario. The change in climatic conditions throughout Canada is very distinct. These changes are short term and in all cases affect supply and demand, the factor which has determined economics dating back to the age of the caveman. The change that stirred my interest the most, while attending a major livestock event, was the societal structure of generations in the livestock industry, from the Silent generation down to Generation Y or what is called by many, the Millennial generation. The Silent generation or often referred to as the Crisis generation, are/were the people born in the 1920’s through the first half of the 1940’s. They were mostly sons and daughters of pioneers who immigrated to North America from Europe. They were an adaptive generation formed by necessity; they lived through a volatile era surviving the Great Depression, the Dirty Thirties and World War II. In the purebred livestock industry, they were the builders and pioneers, establishing their herds and founding associations. County fairs were the mode for marketing, while advertising and all communication was done in print or by word of mouth. The generation to follow is the Baby Boomers, born after World War II and up to the early 1960’s. Baby Boomers lived to work and their job, was their life. As a group, they are the wealthiest, most active and physically fit generation today. They were the TV generation growing up with Ed Sullivan, Andy Griffith, and Lucy, Dennis the Menace, Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Baby Boomers control over 80% of personal financial assets and are responsible for more than half of all consumers spending which includes 80% of all leisure travel. Baby Boomers grew and financed the purebred livestock industry. To them it was fashionable to be a breeder, events were always well attended and “white shirt” pre sale dinners were commonplace the evening prior a sale. Baby Boomers were loyal to the breed they chose to work with and in most cases, very voluntary in breed and community activities. Generation X, people born from the mid 60’s through to the early 1980’s. Generation X came of age in an era of two-income

Herefords Today Summer 2012  20


families, rising divorce rates and a faltering economy. Women were joining the work force in large numbers, spawning the age of “latch-key” children, who, for the most part, spent time away from family. This resulted in Generation X being independent, resourceful and self-sufficient; the first generation with computer technology woven into their lives. Generation X is less committed to one employer, with many having changed jobs numerous times by their early thirties, in comparison to Baby Boomers, who worked to climb the corporate ladder. Members of Generation X are adventurous, value their weekends, vacation time, and are goal orientated. In the livestock sector, many Generation Xers changed breeds from traditional types to continental breeds which were being imported to North America. Even more farm women took jobs off farm to supplement farm income and over half abandoned the family farm to pursue careers in the urban market place. The Millennial generation (Generation Y) is those born in the mid 80’s through the early years towards the turn of the century; the second largest group after the Baby Boomers. The Millennial’s have an increased knowledge and familiarity with communications and digital technology; they have great expectations of the work place often wanting large starting salaries, while many still live at their childhood home well into their mid twenties and are less likely to practice religion than that of the previous generations. The global financial crisis has had a major impact on this generation; causing historically high levels of unemployment among today’s young people, especially in Europe and the United States. Many new university and college graduates are unemployed or underemployed and carry a huge debt through student loans. Generation Y is the first to grow up with computers a part of their home life and cable television has brought them a 500 plus channel viewing opportunity. One of the most popular forms of media use for Millennial’s is through social networking. Some purebred industries have caught up with the habits of the Millennial’s; technology has placed e-mail, text messaging and Facebook ahead of past principles. Most Millennial’s rely on technology to add, subtract and divide; results of events are known as they occur and less and less face-to-face communication is resulting. Text messaging has become as habit forming as the use of tobacco and often employers pay for a lot of time to their employees who text message their social agendas. Although there is a slight glimmer of Millennial’s remaining in agriculture, many have chosen other careers, especially in the oil, gas and mining industries. A young farm adult can get $400.00 to $500.00 per day in the oil field, the same amount their Baby Boomer grandfather got for a bull or a steer in his day. Associations have seen major declines in membership as the Millennial’s seek other venues of employment. In this era we have seen farming operations largely expand while farm population has diminished. The challenge lies ahead for all of us in agriculture. Breed associations have to adapt and conform to the “new era” where the new generation is enticed by technology and net-working. Since they are the builders of the future and also our consumer, we must communicate at their level. The new leaders of the industry, along with folks working in various venues of the livestock fraternity, must be youthful, shedding the past ideas of the founding “Baby Boomers.”

Dr. Colin Palmer

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.

Finding the Balance Between Price and Quality If you sell purebred stock you have undoubtedly been frustrated when you lose customers to a lower priced competitor. Competition in the marketplace is a good thing, but in this case it would seem, only if you are a buyer. Cattle prices are up and with that the price of replacement bulls - for the most part anyway. Buying good quality bulls that sire high value calves is one of the best investments a cattleman can make in his herd yet it seems like we struggle to get that message out there. There are so many variables in raising cattle. Feeding situations, when to calve, labour, facilities, availability of land, finances, marketing to name a few. One of biggest problems in our industry is that few producers know their cost of production. Part of this scenario is not knowing what their calves weigh and not understanding what determines their value. Without this knowledge, it is very difficult to appreciate the return on investment of an input; therefore, the least costs mindset prevails because it is safe. Only the very best will take the time to consider the lost opportunity. How much should you expect to pay for a bull to be used on a commercial herd? An article that I read a few years back in a US beef magazine suggested that a good rule of thumb was 5 to 7 times the value of a commercial weaned calf. Locally, I have heard 4 times the value of a steer calf. For many producers, it seems hard to justify the cost of higher priced bulls and so they try very hard to find cheaper bulls. Supply and demand forces play a big part in determining price. I will not argue that there are bargains to be had; especially, when there are too many bulls out there. However, at all times buyers need to be astute – are you buying better genetics or just something to get your cows pregnant? How has the bull been raised, has his semen been evaluated, what about a guarantee? Those that sell cheap bulls limit the development of the cattle industry. Have they ever attempted to figure out what is involved in raising a quality bull? Good bulls usually have great sires. Costs of herd sires and AI programs can easily exceed those endured by commercial producers. Performance herds must have scales and weigh their cattle; yardage costs are higher as bulls need specialized pens; feed, showing, advertising, registration, delivery and sale costs all must be factored in. What about losses from death, injury and failed semen tests? I estimate all of these costs at perhaps a conservative $1500 to $2000 per bull over that of raising a commercial calf. If a steer calf is now worth $1000 then add this cost to the cost of raising the bull and you will get a $2500 to $3000 break-even price for a yearling bull. If you don’t factor in the lost opportunity to sell that calf as a steer then you are really fooling yourself. The longer that bull remains in the purebred producer’s inventory the higher the break-even price becomes.

Purveyors of cheap bulls can only be truly profitable if they lower their costs of production which can be accomplished by cutting corners or by taking advantage of economies of scale. My personal observations have been that large operations that are in the position to take advantage of economies of scale generally do not sell cheap bulls – they are just more profitable. Taking advantage of economies of scale is what helped to keep them solvent during the years of poor prices. Therefore, sellers of cheap bulls are either cutting corners or simply eroding their equity. Not exactly poster boys for our industry! Large animal veterinary medicine has also changed considerably in the last decade and there are more changes to come. In 2001, the average Saskatchewan beef cow herd consisted of 80 breeding cows; in 2012 that number has risen to 154 cows. Across North America the number of farms is decreasing while the size is increasing. Cattle vets are now and will continue to become consultants rather than focusing on saving sick animals. Our rural vets will need more communication and business skills to better serve the needs of their clients. There really is no shortage of rural vets, but rather a shortage of visible opportunities for veterinarians in some rural areas. In other words, if it is worth while vets will establish practices in rural areas, or more appropriately provide service in those areas in lieu of an actual physical structure. You as a producer, must realize that you probably only need access to veterinary services rather than actually have a vet waiting on stand-by in your community. Believe it or not, many large animal vets lack business sense, but that must change. Like cattlemen offering cheap bulls they continue to offer services at prices at or below what was charged 30 years ago and many of them survive on their small animal business. Most vets have big hearts and they want to help their clients, but usually at their own expense. A segment of the profession have recognized opportunities and are offering more and more specialized services to producers. Competition has resulted in better prices for the producer, but it is still up to the cattleman to determine value. Is the vet doing a good job for you, are they thorough, are they professional and can they stand by their work? Perhaps they are able to package goods and services with rewards for loyalty. Those that are truly focused on the cattle industry are very willing to consider your business needs not just their own. Spend some time thinking about what you want your vet to provide and remember, just like when buying bulls, the lowest price isn’t always the best way to go.

By: Chris Poley Summer is here and the cattle are all on grass. However, most producers are already anticipating fall, as they listen to marketing representatives, order buyers and analysts, who are all predicting a very steamy fall calf run. Many are saying ten cents a pound higher than last fall’s much improved prices. This is welcome news to all producers. Many of whom need to update aging equipment and infrastructure that has been in operation since before 2003. With strong prices and increased cash flow, this fall also presents great opportunities to add some top females to your program. There are both elite commercial and purebred dispersals booked, adding those untouchable females to any program, will only make it’s foundation stronger. We have also wrapped up one of my favorite seasons; 4-H regional shows and sales. I truly believe that 4-H is the greatest youth development in this country! Anytime you see a current or past 4-H member in the newspaper, it is for positive contributions to their communities, not for making criminal headlines. The junior associations we have in this country are getting stronger and stronger for youth involved. This experience expands their development beyond the 4-H program. However, 4-H is the foundation to these kids and is very close to my heart. I grew up on a mixed farming operation with commercial cattle and I did not have the opportunity to be involved in a junior breed association. 4-H had a major impact on my life. It was through the 4-H program that I got my first exposure to purebred cattle and marketing; the two things which obviously today, are a huge part of my life! Even the dreaded 4-H speeches and public speaking served me well. I bet you never thought public speaking was ever terrifying to me. 4-H prepared me and gave me the skills and foundations that I have today! I have the great privilege to auction two of the strongest regional 4-H sales in Saskatchewan. Every year I am blown away by the repeat buyers who attend and support the sales so strongly. They too can obviously see the positive impact the 4-H program has in the lives of these kids. I do notice a rural/urban disconnect in larger centres; you would think it would be easier to sell steers with more business owners and at a higher price, they are averaging less than rural clubs. The smaller centre business owners dig a little deeper and have more of a connection with the kids and their families. Many of them were 4-H member themselves. It is great to hear a lot of their families are using steer money to set up education funds. There are many young members with excess of $25,000.00 in funds from the sale of their 4-H steers. I overheard a few young girls saying how they “wish they could get their hands on that cash now.”.I have a feeling they will feel differently when they graduate and do not have the burden of huge student loans, as many of their classmates will. Then they will really understand the value of their time spent in 4-H and leading their beloved steer onto the truck won’t seem as bad as it once did. They will be there to encourage and support their own “little 4-Hers,” when their time comes. Enjoy your summer, see you on the road.

CALGARY – You might just say John Nostadt “steered” his way to victory. Nostadt, who farms in Maidstone, Ont., near Windsor, had a feeling about his 1,324-pound crossbred steer this spring – enough of a feeling that he decided to make the cross-continent trek to Calgary for the first time in a decade. “We had truck trouble coming out. I put a motor in it just before we left home, and a hose blew off it... right in downtown Chicago,” recalled Nostadt on Saturday with a rueful chuckle. “I was almost going to turn around, but I thought I had a nice one, so I thought I’d better get it fixed.” That Windy City mechanic may suddenly be on Nostadt’s Christmas card list. That crossbred steer – Angus, Simmental, and Maine Anjou – ended up earning Nostadt and his business partner, Martin Koyle, a cool $11,000 as the grand champion of the Calgary Stampede’s 30th annual UFA Steer Classic, held Saturday under the Big Top. Nostadt and Koyle collect $10,000 from UFA for overall grand champion honours, as per the verdict of show judge Brandon Callis of Brenham, Texas, plus $1,000 for winning the Open class. As per a decade long tradition, the grand champion steer has been purchased by the Penny Lane Entertainment Group – and is most likely destined to be the main course at Zen 8 Grill for a fall gala fund-raiser. Nostadt has enjoyed a real hot streak during his infrequent appearances at the Stampede. He also took top honours at the UFA Steer Classic in 2002 when he brought a Limousin out West, and another of his animals took a best-in-breed red ribbon during the first edition of the show back in 1983. “I’m a little jittery, still, getting over the hype of winning in Centennial year. It’s a real privilege to come here, and do so well... it’s just an honour to show at the Calgary Stampede,” he said. “We haven’t shown him anywhere. This was a one-time deal. But we liked him... knew he was nice.” Meanwhile, 16-year-old Dakota Townsend of Sylvan Lake, Alta., enjoyed a substantial windfall thanks to her 1,376-pound Hereford beast. Townsend’s steer was named the UFA Steer Classic’s overall reserve champion, worth $4,000 thanks to sponsorship by Merck Animal Health. Her day’s total earnings, however, ended up at $14,000, since victory in the Hereford class was worth $10,000 all on its own. The Canadian Hereford Association had put up the money in honour of the 16th World Hereford Conference, which has returned to Canada – and southern Alberta – for the first time since 1976. The steer has been purchased by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen (CAPL), and will remain on display for the duration of the 2012 Stampede. Townsend said she’s entered the steer – officially owned by Lone Star Angus and Butler Cattle Co. – at 12 shows this year and won all but two, with victories in Lloydminster, Vermilion, Olds, and Bashaw. “I was sure hoping (for victory in the Hereford class). This feels awesome,” she said. “Everybody loves him and said he was a great steer – that he was the most complete, soundest walking, biggest boned, prettiest front-ended steer out there this year.” The UFA Steer Classic continues to chart a steady growth in terms of participation – going from 79 entries in 2010, to 98 to last summer, to 129 this time around, with exhibitors arriving from across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and even Iowa. The culmination of the regional steer show season, and the richest steer show in Canada, the UFA Steer Classic sees members of the beef industry congregate at the Stampede to promote and compete in everything from the merits of purebred genetics to the current trends in consumer beef demands. Herefords Today Summer 2012  46


“This is a friendly, yet aggressive competition. There’s straightbred cattle being shown, as well as crossbred cattle. The steers that compete at the UFA Steer Classic have been competing against each other at shows all year. The excitement has been building all season,” notes Don Miller, who chairs the Stampede’s Steer Classic committee. “This event attracts breeders and cattle people from all over. It’s got a tremendous following among both purebred and commercial cattle breeders who want to see how things turn out.” Just as importantly, the UFA Steer Classic represents a tremendous opportunity for the cattle industry to educate the urban public about its safe food production standards and responsiveness to consumer market trends. “It’s important to let urbanites know that the quality of Canadian beef is world-class,” says Miller. Event organizers continue to emphasize youth involvement, with the second annual Junior Steer Champion Auction held immediately following the UFA Steer Classic on Saturday afternoon. The owner of the grand champion in the Junior Class, Chase Miller of Cremona, Alta., received a $3,000 post-secondary scholarship, as well as $2,000 cash, while the owner of the reserve champion, Kathryn Dolliver of Stettler, Alta., earned a scholarship in the amount of $2,000, plus $1,500 cash. Both animals immediately went under the gavel, with proceeds going toward the growth of a self-sustaining Stampede scholarship fund. Following is the 30th annual UFA Steer Classic’s list of grand, and reserve champions, respectively: PillerShow Cattle of Neudorf, Sask., and Kolby Heaven of Whitecourt, Alta., in Angus; 3G Ventures of Cochrane, Alta., and Miller Ranching Ltd. of Cremona, Alta., in Red Angus; Rhett Jones of Morse, Sask., and Jackson Cattle Co.

NEWS RELEASE

10-Day Beef Highlights from the 2012 Calgary Stampede CALGARY – Beef is king at the Calgary Stampede. And its crown certainly got a good polish during Centennial year. Beef cattle have played a vital role in the Stampede for a full century. And with nearly 40 per cent of the Canadian herd situated in Alberta, the Stampede places a particular emphasis on illustrating the industry’s meaningful impact on Wild Rose Country. “I’d call this year an overwhelming success,” said Bob Park, who chairs the Stampede’s Beef Cattle committee. “There’s a true curiosity among the public. They want to see live beef cattle. We gave them that and much, much more.” In only its second season of existence, the Stampede’s Cattle Trail exhibit proved a runaway success. An engaging, interactive presentation of the beef cattle industry from pasture to plate, the Cattle Trail details the industry’s attention to safe food production standards, environmentally sustainable practices, traceability, and animal welfare. The Cattle Trail clearly struck a chord with the Stampede’s international crowd in 2012, attracting an estimated 112,000 visitors through its 10-day run. “We gave a very large group of people a whole new appreciation for what a cattleman goes through to bring a calf to harvest,” said Park. “The beauty of the Cattle Trail is that people get the straight answer, right from the people within the industry, on subjects such as best practices, sustainability, traceability, and how the animals are being cared for.” The 30th annual UFA Steer Classic, held on Saturday, July 14, continued its recent pattern of steady growth, with 129 entries from five Canadian provinces and one American state. John Nostadt and Martin Koyle of Maidstone, Ont., took top honours with a 1,324-pound crossbred steer. The duo collects $10,000, plus another $1,000 for victory in the Open class and as part of a long-standing tradition, that steer has been purchased by Zen 8 Grill, most likely for its annual Champion Steer Dinner fundraiser in the fall. Dakota Townsend, 16, of Sylvan Lake, Alta., enjoyed an even bigger pay day at the UFA Steer Classic. She collects $4,000 as overall reserve champion plus another $10,000 for victory in the Hereford breed class. That extra windfall comes as a result of generous sponsorship by the Canadian Hereford Association, in recognition of the 16th World Hereford Conference being held in southern Alberta.

Miller of Cremona, Alta., and Kathryn Dolliver of Stettler, Alta., respectively go under the gavel. Money raised at the auction goes toward a self-sustaining Stampede post-secondary scholarship fund. The second annual Jackpot Heifer Show, held on Sunday, July 15, was won by Cassidy Matthews of Olds, Alta., while Miller claimed the reserve championship. “We use the UFA Steer Classic as an educational tool for the urban public, to let them know that the quality of Canadian beef is world-class,” said Steer Classic committee chair Don Miller. “And this event attracts breeders and cattle people from all over. It’s got a tremendous following among both purebred and commercial cattle breeders who want to see how things turn out.” The Stampede’s International Youth Livestock program saw 55 of agriculture’s future custodians presented with postsecondary scholarships totaling $65,000. Four International Youth Livestock Supreme Champions, displaying exceptional conformation and presentation of their respective species projects, were crowned under the Big Top on Saturday, July 14 as part of the UFA Steer Classic. Lindsey Papenhuyzen of Stony Plain, Alta., took Supreme Purebred Beef Champion honours, Brandon Hertz of Duchess, Alta., took the Supreme Commercial Beef Champion title, Katelyn Crest of Athabasca, Alta., was hailed as Supreme Dairy Champion, and Victoria Wehlage of Milk River, Alta., earned the Supreme Sheep Champion crown. All IYL scholarship winners and Supreme Champions were toasted during a new event, the Stars of Agriculture gala reception, on the evening of Saturday, July 14 in the BMO Centre’s Arabian Room. Meanwhile, 22-year-old Brennin Jack of Weyburn, Sask., captured the Stampede’s 24th International Livestock Auctioneer Championship held Saturday, July 14 under the Big Top — becoming the first Saskatchewan auctioneer to be fitted for the ILAC crown, as well as the youngest winner ever of the Stampede auctioneers’ showdown. Jack, a former Stampede rookie-of-the-year, beat out 23 other hopefuls in the two-day competition. He takes home about $5,500 in cash and prizes, including a Stampede buckle and a champion’s jacket sponsored by past winners, and earns an automatic berth into the 2013 World Livestock Auctioneer Championship at Montgomery, Ala. “To me, this was one of the tighter contests we’ve ever held,” reflected International Livestock Auctioneers committee member Dan Skeels. “There are years where you could say somebody’s really stood out, and won hands-down, but honestly, before I got the results and announced them, I didn’t know who was going to win it.”

The second annual Junior Steer Champion Auction, which immediately followed the UFA Steer Classic, saw the grand and reserve champion steers from the Junior class owned by Chase
