SUSTAINABILITY AND FEEDING THE WORLD

I have had the privilege and responsibility of traveling to various parts of the world this summer to represent the Canadian Simmental Association (CSA) as its General Manager. Face to face events have now resumed as things move back to normal in most regions of the world which has al lowed me to attend events across Western Canada, the United States of America, and the World Simmental Fleckvieh Federation Conference in Europe.

While traveling to these events, a shared discussion has been prevalent regarding how we will feed the rapidly growing world population in a sustainable and efficient manner and that also works in harmony with the resources utilized by us as ranchers and farmers. One thing that food producers share around the world is increasing pressure to validate what we do and why we do it in order to, at times, counter very misguided Gov ernment and social policy that unfortunately is a result of a total lack of understanding of how food is produced.

Agricultural practices have changed immensely over the last fifty years, especially with the improvements in grain production practices. Billions of dollars have been spent on researching new varieties of corn and other grains that now allow some crops to be grown in non-traditional regions. Drought, insect and disease resistance has been greatly improved for many grains that now make it possible to add different crops to a grower’s rotation and to spread out the risk of having “all the eggs in one basket”. All of this has been accomplished through plant breeding that uses the latest technology and science.

Swine and poultry production has followed a similar path in the research and development of new bloodlines, strains, and composites that have greatly improved the output of those species which are direct competitors to beef production. Much of the breeding in the hog and poultry sectors has been done by large corporations and breeding companies and one has to admit it has produced results and efficiencies that the beef sector has not seen. Although demand for beef is at an all-time high we have seen our product become a high cost or premium product when compared to other proteins.

We have seen great improvements in beef quality through work done by breed associations and their members, however the science that has led to genetic improvement on many traits is often disputed by some breeders and, at times, outright ignored by others. The opinion that “all my cattle are good so don’t tell me that they are below average in any way” still lives. We often see breeding decisions made based on emotion and feelings to wards a favorite cow or bull in the pedigree, though at times their progeny may not produce to nearly the same level. “We will give him one more try” is an expensive gamble in cattle breeding. Cattle have a long generation al interval when we work to make substantial changes, especially when some breeders ignore using all the tools that are available to them.

One of the misnomers that I have heard several times is that the beef in dustry has become more efficient because we are producing more beef from less cows. The North American cowherd is dropping in numbers at an alarming rate yet we are selling more product at higher prices than ever before. This is largely due to longer time on feed and delaying harvest of the animals until they reach a larger size with more cost to the process. For many cattle the most expensive gain is within the last 1-2 months of a fed animal’s life and it is often said that the larger carcass size is an exam ple of how the beef industry has become more efficient. Without custom feeding for tax benefits, or by packers who want to better control supply and availability through captive supply, those feedlots would have a much more difficult time showing profitability.

What are some of the answers to sustainable beef production in North America? Much of it depends on not competing for resources needed for grains and other crops. Many regions of this planet that are capable of producing food for humans is rangeland and cannot be harvested except through a ruminant such as a cow, sheep or, goat. We need to strive to use that land in a sustainable and efficient manner while also continuing to improve beef production in all the traditional areas that we are doing now. This can only be done with genetics that are predictable and effective in producing beef that is sustainable in every way including profitability of the producer.

Calf prices are looking very good for this fall and for the immediate future with abundant feed in most regions. May this be the start of an era of prof itability and sustainability for all segments of the beef industry.

Breed IMPROVEMENT

BEEF GRADING AND GENETIC SELECTION

There has been a lot of debate over the last couple of years about markets and the role that processors play in those markets. Regardless of your opin ion on the cattle markets and packer control it is still extremely important that consumers continue to purchase beef and enjoy the eating experience.

It is easy to argue that the market is disjointed in terms of market signals, ownership and pricing but it is tough to argue that carcass characteristics are not important to the long-term success of the industry. Carcass char acteristics generally have a moderate to high heritability, meaning that the genetic component has a large impact on end-product merit, regardless of management. From a genetics provider perspective this produces a conun drum as we may be one further step removed from, as previously noted, a disjointed market. If we can accept that simply being a step or two away from the end-product does not abdicate us from responsibility, then the next question should be, what is carcass quality?

The answer as it turns out may vary, however there are some universal threads.

Carcasses are valued based on the weight of the carcass, the yield of the carcass and the quality grade of the carcass. The relative influence of each of these on the price may vary, depending on the program or market that the carcass is sold into, but generally speaking, a carcass is valued on these three things. The grading system is designed to classify carcasses into cate gories that describe a series of broad attributes, but these categories are not always adequate for genetic evaluation.

When we talk about carcass characteristics (including genetic evaluation) we are referring to differences in youthful cattle. In Canada A grade cattle are youthful and contain adequate muscling, bright red muscle fibres and a min imum of 2mm of backfat. Cattle that fall outside of these parameters that are still youthful, will fall into the B grades. This includes cattle with inadequate muscling, devoid of marbling or dark cutters. B grades tend to be severely discounted in most industry pricing schematics.

“A” grade cattle are further separated into yield grade classes and marbling levels. Yield grade is based on a muscle score and fat thickness and is a pre diction of the retail yield of closely trimmed, boneless cuts from the round, chuck, loin and rib. Cattle are sorted into yield categories of 1 to 5 with 1 being the highest yielding and 5 being the least. These cattle are also sorted into marbling categories of A, AA, AAA (Choice) and Prime, representing increas ing levels of marbling respectively. A typical pricing grid will offer higher pric es for high yielding/high marbling carcasses and discounts for low yielding/ low marbling carcasses. Grading is designed to sort harvested cattle on a given day or specific point in time. A very good description of the Canadian grading system is available at http://beefgradingagency.ca

So What About Genetic Evaluation?

Unfortunately, for the purposes of genetic evaluation standard beef grading information or categorization is not generally adequate. The categorization used to sort carcasses for marketing and pricing does not provide a level of detail that allows us to sort out genetic differences between animals. For example, we may be interested in identifying cattle that have the potential to increase carcass yield. A carcass that yields 52.4% will receive the same Yield Grade 1 score as a carcass that yields 56% yet the genetics that contrib uted to the 56% calf have more potential to increase yield overall. Marbling is also a good example. A carcass may grade AAA and yet be barely above a AA grade, while a AAA carcass may also be just slightly below a Canada prime. There is a significant difference between these carcasses and the genetics that make them up (all else being equal). For this reason, we require more detailed information to conduct genetic evaluation of carcass merit. An ex ample of carcass data from 4 calves is shown in Table 1. In the table, standard grading data is shown in BOLD. Comparing this data to the more detailed information that would be collected for genetic evaluation shows that there can be significant differences even between carcasses that are sorted into the same category for grading purposes.

As with other genetic evaluations, prior history is also important so that proper contemporary groups can be formed. This is not specifically the case for cattle to be simply graded.

Options:

There are a variety of options available for CSA members that might be interested in collecting and evaluating carcass data in their selection pro grams. Grading camera data may be available in some situations. This data is computed using a digital image of the carcass rib-eye and can provide the detailed types of measurements required for genetic evaluation of carcass merit. As well, the use of ultrasound data in yearling seedstock provides a good source of easily accessible data that is highly correlated to carcass performance. Members who are interested in pursuing carcass merit in their programs are encouraged to contact the CSA to explore potential options and to obtain further information and support.

LA DURABILITÉ ET NOURRIR LE MONDE

À titre de directeur général, j’ai eu le privilège et la responsabilité de me rendre dans diverses parties du monde cet été pour représenter l’Association Simmental du Canada (ASC). Les événements en présentiel ont maintenant repris alors que la situation revient à la normale dans la plupart des régions du monde, ce qui m’a permis d’assister à des événements dans l’Ouest canadien, aux États-Unis et à la Conférence de la Fédération mondiale Simmental Fleckvieh en Europe.

Lors de mes déplacements à ces événements, une discussion commune a été répétée sur la façon dont nous allons nourrir la population mondiale en croissance rapide d’une manière durable et efficace, tout en fonctionnant également en har monie avec les ressources utilisées par nous les éleveurs et les agriculteurs. Une chose que partagent les producteurs d’aliments du monde entier est la pression croissante pour valider ce que nous faisons et pourquoi nous le faisons. Et parfois, cela est pour contrer la politique gouvernementale et sociale très mal informée qui est malheureusement le résultat d’un manque total de compréhension de la façon dont nos aliments sont produits.

Les pratiques agricoles ont énormément changé au cours des cinquante dernières années, surtout avec l’amélioration des pratiques de production des céréales. Des milliards de dollars ont été consacrés à la recherche de nouvelles variétés de maïs et d’autres céréales qui permettent maintenant de produire certaines cultures dans des régions non traditionnelles. La résistance à la sécheresse, aux insectes et aux maladies a été grandement améliorée pour de nombreuses céréales, ce qui permet maintenant d’ajouter différentes cultures à la rotation d’un producteur et de répartir le risque de mettre « tous ses œufs dans le même panier ». Tout cela a été accompli grâce à la sélection végétale qui utilise les dernières technologies et la science.

La production porcine et avicole a suivi une voie semblable dans la recherche et le développement de nouvelles lignées, de souches et d’animaux composites qui ont grandement amélioré la production de ces espèces, lesquelles sont en concurrence directe avec la production de viande de bœuf. Une bonne partie de la sélection dans les secteurs du porc et de la volaille a été faite par de grandes com pagnies et des sociétés de sélection génétique. Il faut admettre qu’elle a produit des résultats et des gains d’efficacité que le secteur du boeuf n’a jamais vus. Alors que la demande pour la viande de boeuf n’ait jamais été aussi élevée, nous avons vu la viande de boeuf devenir un produit à valeur élevée ou de qualité supérieure comparativement aux autres sources de protéines.

Nous avons constaté de grandes améliorations de la qualité du bœuf grâce au travail des associations de races et de leurs membres. Toutefois, la science qui a favorisé une amélioration génétique pour de nombreux caractères est souvent

contestée par certains éleveurs et, parfois, elle est carrément ignorée par d’autres. Le discours selon lequel « tous mes bovins sont bons, alors ne me dites pas qu’ils sont en dessous de la moyenne d’une manière ou d’une autre » est toujours d’actu alité. Nous voyons souvent des décisions d’élevage prises en fonction de l’émotion et des sentiments envers une vache ou un taureau favori dans un pedigree, bien que parfois leur progéniture peut ne pas produire au même niveau. « On va lui donner une autre chance » est un pari coûteux dans l’élevage du bétail. L’intervalle entre les générations est long chez les bovins, lorsque nous travaillons à apporter des changements majeurs, et principalement lorsque certains éleveurs ignorent l’utilisation de tous les outils à leur disposition.

J’ai entendu à plusieurs reprises la fausseté suivante, soit que l’industrie bovine est devenue plus efficace parce que nous produisons plus de boeuf à partir de moins de vaches. Le cheptel bovin nord-américain diminue à un rythme alarmant, toutefois nous vendons plus de produits à des prix plus élevés que jamais. Cela s’explique en grande partie par la prolongation de la durée d’engraissement et le report de l’abattage des animaux jusqu’à ce qu’ils atteignent un poids plus élevé avec un coût d’engraissement supérieur. Pour de nombreux bovins, le gain le plus coûteux se situe dans les deux derniers mois de la vie d’un animal engraissé, et on dit souvent que la grosseur de la carcasse est un exemple de la façon dont l’industrie bovine est devenue plus efficace. Sans l’engraissement effectué à forfait pour des avantages fiscaux, ou par les abattoirs qui veulent mieux contrôler l’offre et la disponibilité grâce à l’approvisionnement captif, ces parcs d’engraissement auraient beaucoup plus de difficulté à démontrer leur rentabilité.

Quelles sont quelques-unes des solutions à la production bovine durable en Amérique du Nord? Cela dépend en bonne partie de l’absence de concurrence pour les ressources nécessaires à la production des céréales et des autres cul tures. De nombreuses régions sur notre planète ne peuvent pas produire de la nourriture pour les humains, car elles sont constituées de pâturages naturels qui ne peuvent être récoltés que par un ruminant comme une vache, un mouton ou une chèvre. Nous devons utiliser ces terres de façon durable et efficace, tout en continuant d’améliorer la production de boeuf dans toutes les régions tradition nelles comme nous le faisons actuellement. Cela ne peut se faire qu’avec une génétique prévisible et efficace pour produire du bœuf qui est durable à tous les égards, y compris pour la rentabilité du producteur.

Les prix des veaux d’embouche sont très bons cet automne et pour un avenir immédiat, et nous avons une bonne disponibilité d’aliments dans la plupart des régions. Souhaitons que ce soit le début d’une ère de rentabilité et de durabilité pour tous les segments de l’industrie bovine.

Amelioration De la race

Il y a eu beaucoup de discussions au cours des deux dernières années au sujet des marchés et du rôle que jouent les transformateurs dans ces marchés. Peu importe votre opinion sur les marchés du bétail et le contrôle détenu par les abattoirs, il est toujours extrêmement important que les consommateurs continuent d’acheter de la viande de boeuf et de profiter de leur expérience alimentaire.

Il est facile de soutenir que le marché des bovins est déconnecté en termes de signaux du marché, de propriété des animaux et du prix, mais il est difficile de prétendre que les caractéristiques des carcasses ne sont pas importantes pour le succès à long terme de l’industrie bovine. Les caractéristiques de la carcasse ont généralement une héritabilité moyenne à élevée, ce qui veut dire que la partie génétique a un impact important sur les qualités du produit final, et cela peu im porte la régie. Tel que mentionné précédemment, du point de vue d’un fournisseur de génétique, cela crée tout un dilemme, car nous sommes peut-être à une étape de plus d’un marché dysfonctionnel. Si on peut accepter en fait d’être à une ou deux étapes du produit final sans nous soustraire à nos responsabilités, alors la question à se poser devrait être : qu’est-ce que la qualité des carcasses? La réponse peut effectivement varier, toutefois il y a quelques lignes de pensée universelles.

Les carcasses sont évaluées en fonction du poids, du rendement et de leur qual ité. L’influence relative de chacun de ces facteurs sur le prix peut varier, selon le programme ou le marché dans lequel la carcasse est vendue, mais en général, une carcasse est évaluée sur ces trois éléments. Le système de classement des carcasses est conçu pour classer les carcasses en catégories décrivant une série de propriétés générales, toutefois ces catégories ne sont pas toujours adéquates au niveau de l’évaluation génétique.

Quand nous parlons des caractéristiques de la carcasse (ainsi que d’évaluation génétique), nous faisons référence aux différences chez les jeunes bovins. Au Canada, les bovins de la catégorie A sont jeunes et présentent une musculature développée, des fibres musculaires rouge vif et ont un minimum de 2 mm de gras dorsal. Les bovins qui ne rencontrent pas tous ces paramètres et qui sont encore jeunes seront alors classés dans la catégorie B. Cela comprend les bovins avec un musculature insuffisante, dépourvus de persillage ou les carcasses classées « viande de coupe sombre ». Dans la plupart des grilles de prix dans l’industrie, les carcasses classées B reçoivent des pénalités importantes.

Les bovins de la catégorie A sont ensuite répartis en catégories de rendement et en niveaux de persillage. La catégorie de rendement est basée sur un score muscula ture et une épaisseur de gras, et elle est une prédiction du rendement au détail de coupes dégraissées et désossées de la ronde, de la palette, de la longe et des côtes. Les bovins sont classés en catégories de rendement de 1 à 5, 1 étant le rendement le plus élevé et 5 étant le moins élevé. Ces bovins sont également classés dans les catégories A, AA, AAA (Choix) et « Prime », lesquels représentent respectivement des niveaux croissants de persillage. Une grille de prix typique offrira des prix plus élevés pour les carcasses à haut rendement/persillage élevé et des pénalités pour les carcasses à plus faible rendement/persillage faible. Le classement est conçu pour trier les bovins abattus une journée donnée ou à un moment précis. Une très bonne description du système de classement canadien est disponible à https:// beefgradingagency.ca/fr/classement-du-betail/classement-du-boeuf/.

Malheureusement, pour les fins de l’évaluation génétique, les renseignements sur le classement des carcasses ou les différentes catégories ne sont généralement pas adéquats. La catégorisation utilisée pour trier les carcasses aux fins de com mercialisation et d’établissement des prix ne fournit pas un niveau de détail qui nous permet de déterminer les différences génétiques entre les animaux. Par ex emple, nous pourrions être intéressés à identifier les bovins qui ont le potentiel d’augmenter le rendement de la carcasse. Une carcasse qui produit un rendement de 52,4 % recevra le même de catégorie 1 qu’une carcasse qui produit un rende ment de 56 %, mais la génétique qui a contribué à l’animal ayant obtenu 56 % de rendement a plus de potentiel pour augmenter le rendement global.

Le persillage est aussi un bon exemple. Une carcasse peut être classée AAA, tout en étant à peine au-dessus d’une autre classée AA, tandis qu’une carcasse AAA peut aussi être légèrement inférieure à une carcasse classée Prime. Il y a une différence importante entre ces carcasses et la génétique qui les compose (toutes choses étant par ailleurs égales). Pour cette raison, nous avons besoin de renseignements plus détaillés pour effectuer l’évaluation génétique du mérite de la carcasse. Le tableau 1 présente un exemple de données sur les carcasses de quatre veaux. Dans le tableau, les données de classement sont indiquées EN CARACTÈRE GRAS. La comparaison de ces données avec les renseignements plus détaillés qui seraient recueillis aux fins d’évaluation génétique montre qu’il peut y avoir des différences importantes même entre les carcasses qui sont réparties dans la même catégorie aux fins du classement.

Comme c’est vrai pour d’autres évaluations génétiques, les informations historiques sont également importantes pour que des groupes contemporains appropriés puissent être formés. Ce n’est pas précisément le cas pour les bovins qui doivent simplement être classés.

Options

Les membres de l’ASC disposent de diverses options pour recueillir et évaluer les données sur les carcasses dans leurs programmes de sélection. Les données du classement effectué par une caméra peuvent être disponibles dans certaines sit uations. Ces données sont calculées à l’aide d’une image numérique de l’œil-delonge de la carcasse et peuvent fournir les types détaillés de mesures nécessaires à l’évaluation génétique du mérite de la carcasse. De plus, l’utilisation de données de mesures par les ultrasons obtenues chez les sujets d’un an constitue une bonne source de données facilement accessibles qui est fortement corrélée au rendement de la carcasse.

Les membres souhaitant exploiter davantage le mérite génétique de la carcasse dans leurs programmes sont invités à communiquer avec l’ASC pour explorer les options possibles et obtenir de plus amples renseignements et du soutien.

COCCIDIOSIS AND INTERNAL PARASITISM A COMBINED DUAL ENEMY

The two clinical syndromes listed in the title are two I thought we had rid from the cattle sector. They are on the comeback trail and I will tell you why plus new strategies to keep them at bay. It is why the clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment must be reviewed at times. Direct communication between yourself as rancher/farmer nutritionist and veterinarian are sometimes necessary to realize the maximum benefits your cattle get from preventing either or both of these disease syndromes from slowly creeping into your herd. Also of course subclinical levels of both these parasites can sometimes slow down production.

All of us old enough remember the days of the bloody diarrhea, associated with severe irritation and straining associated with a coccidiosis outbreak either as young (usually one-month old plus) calves or weaned calves in the backgrounding lot. These bad cases may be very hard to treat.

They maybe associated with weather changes or other stressors. The nervous coccidiosis that often still had the bloody diarrhea associated would give distinct nervous signs. These signs would be staggering going down convulsing with the head thrown back and might be barely distinguishable from polioencephalomalacia, ITEME, lead poisoning some mycotoxins or even vitamin A deficiency. These outbreaks were often sporadic but often several calves were involved and brought about by stressors such as weather changes or processing. Anything which inhibits the immune system such as dexamethasone for aborting heifers to a high worm count may suppress the immune system yielding an increase in coccidiosis including the nervous form. Canada and the United States are two of the few countries where this type of coccidiosis is reported.

Controlling coccidiosis involves controlling manure disposal onto cropped land plus preventing runoff collecting in calving fields to preventative treatment given to the calves themselves. Another method is cows before calving given a coccidiostat such as rumensin or monensin in the feed before calving to reduce shedding of the infective oocysts (eggs) onto the ground. Other treatment products such as deccox may be given in creep feed for young calves or put in TMRs (total mixed rations). There is a treatment product called toltrazuril (baycox) that is also specifically a coccidiosis treatment product. Prevention or treatment increases gains prevents clinical cases which often become poor doing. Straining from coccidiosis may even cause prolapsed rectums that must be dealt with and repaired, so the more prevention we can do the better. The toltrazuril has been prescribed by veterinarians across western Canada for more than a decade to help prevent coccidiosis and it seems to help prevent cryptosporidiosis. It seems that producers that use this product have very little trouble with

cryptosporidiosis. This evidence is just from experience. I will do an article in an upcoming magazine on cryptosporidiosis and what can be done for it.

Where internal parasites fit into this scenario is that we are finding the macrocyclic family (ivermectin type) of dewormers becoming less and less effective against internal worms and most recently (within the last several years) being less effective against external lice (sucking and biting). What we have seen is increasing numbers of internal worms in people’s cattle herds. Even though prior good management procedures were being followed. What can ensue is the presence of internal worms: the cattle’s immune system is then working overtime to try and get the parasites to stop laying eggs. This takes up a lot of energy and another part of the immune system is downplayed allowing coccidia to flourish under these conditions. This involves the different part of the immune systems cells which deal with extracellular organisms (worms) versus intracellular organisms (coccidia). With this mechanism then if worms increase, coccidia will as well.

Since coccidiostats are a category four antimicrobial, my worry was they might be pulled from antibiotic free programs. The vast majority of these programs allow these coccidiostats and they are a mistake removing from any feeding program in my opinion. They have been proven to be an economical effective way of keeping coccidiosis in check along with all the health and growth and feed efficiency benefits associated with them. Plus to my knowledge no resistance has been seen.

Fortunately, if in doubt both disease syndromes can be diagnosed with fecal flotations where both oocysts and worm eggs can be identified on the same fecal. Likewise, when treated they can be checked again for a substantial decrease in parasite numbers. One must realize that, especially if before one month into the problem fecals may reveal no oocysts because the cycle has not been completed yet. Veterinarians may need to start treatment based on clinical signs and go with their gut instincts on this one.

In deworming trials done over the last decades if one can get the internal worms down to close to zero with say deworming with a different anthelmintic like safeguard, we find the coccidia will be dramatically reduced secondarily. Again, removing the worms allows the cattle’s immune system to substantially reduce the coccidia. This is a secondary benefit and one we will take. The coccidiostats are still being allowed to be used and have proven very effective and economic over the years in both commercial and purebred operations. Winter in this country helps us with internal parasite transmission because everything is in frozen suspended animation as far as parasites eggs are concerned.

A Vision of Value Creation

The Canadian Beef Improvement Network (CBIN) has continued to advance a steady pace in recent months with significant gains being made in development. In order to achieve these advancements, there has been a need at times, to focus on specific steps of the development process. Although that has been important in achieving tangible outcomes, it is equally important that we don’t lose sight of the broad vision of CBIN - a multi-step development process with the ultimate goal of unlocking value for the entire Cana dian beef by connecting genetic data to production metrics from conception to consumption.

As we have outlined on several occasions, CBIN has a four-step development plan to drive this transformational initiative forward to full operation and this plan in its entirety remains our overarching goal. Only then will we be able to truly capture the value of genetics across the entire beef production chain. The four-step plan is as follows:

1. Build the Data Foundation: Build an operational system that will standardize data collection amongst participating Breed Associations (in progress and to be completed by early 2023).

2. Facilitate Data Linkages: Develop a cross-sector genetic data hub that will facilitate linkages of genetic data to traditional production metrics.

3. Translate Data: Create the analytical resources to assist in the translation of genetic data into informed decisions that allow increased value capture from conception to consumption.

4. Drive Adoption: Advance the understanding of the value of genetic data incorporation and resource utilization across the entire beef production system.

With step one, the development of a registry portal to standardize and unify data collection, well underway, we now must shift our focus to the next stages of development. It is only through connecting genetic data to the other production metrics of importance within the beef production system will we be able to fully capture the value of genetic data. There is no doubt that CBIN is a transformational undertaking for the Canadian beef industry with significant potential to create sustainable value for all segments of the production chain and all steps of the development plan are critical to success but

if there is one that, in my mind, is the most challenging yet most fundamental to achieving the vision of CBIN it is step two. Connecting genetic data to production metrics across all segments of our beef production system is no small feat but yet without tackling this broader linkage we truly will fall short of the ultimate goal of CBIN.

Genetic advancements within the beef industry have lagged other livestock production systems and while I truly believe our diversity is our greatest advantage, it has also been our greatest challenge at times. Identifying that diversity to help inform producers, breeding and production decisions is essential to creating value within the beef production system and being able to consistently replicate that value within each of our businesses. While we know that Canadian beef cattle genetics are highly sought after, both domestically and internationally, the ability to access and interpret genetic data has been limiting, it was clear that the data infrastructure did not currently exist within the beef industry to efficiently and effectively link genetic data to metrics of importance across the production chain. It is for these reasons that we must tackle the next steps in the development process, as challenging as they may be. Only then will we be able to fully realize both the economic and environmental value of data driven genetic advancements within the Canadian beef industry.

Substantial collaborative efforts have driven CBIN to this stage of development but clearly, much work lies ahead in our efforts to fully capture the return on our investment in this transformational initiative. While the momentum has been significant recently, we must continue to drive forward in the development of CBIN in order to capture the value potential of Canada’s leading beef cattle genetics. This will require continued collaborative efforts of all those involved in beef production and I am confident we will continue to rise to the challenge and capture the potential opportunity that lies ahead.

Transparency Drives Consumer Support of the Beef Industry

Petre explains the importance of data transparency to meet consumer demands.

“A significant portion of the public has been convinced that ruminants are a major cause of climate change. This message has become ubiquitous; many believe in it, and we need to be able to present data that shows ruminant agriculture is one of the few ways to produce food that sequesters more carbon and is more carbon neutral than any other form of agriculture. We need transparency,” said Ruraidh Petre, Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef executive director. Petre was a featured speaker during the 2022 Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Symposium June 2 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Petre explained the rhetoric many beef consumers have heard, the reality of how producers can improve their trust in the industry and the impact the Sustainable Beef Network will have on the global support for beef.

Rhetoric vs reality

“Consumers of late, are tired of being told what to eat. They want to eat beef, but they want to be reassured it’s a responsible thing to do,” Petre added.

Sustainable Beef Network

The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) a network of roundtables spanning more than 24 countries to develop the role of beef in a thriving and sustainable food system. Producers are the driving force of the roundtables because without them, there would be no action on the ground. The GRSB has three global goals focusing on climate impact, animal health and welfare, and nature positive production. They plan to achieve a 30% reduction in the intensity of carbon emissions and for the beef industry to be a net positive contributor to nature by 2030. They also focus on providing animals with an environment in which they can thrive.

“Good animal health contributes to human health through a reduction in zoonoses, as well as reducing the need for pharmaceuticals that are critical to human health, the overuse of which can lead to resistance,” Petre explained.

Climate change is a major issue facing the beef industry as many consumers are convinced ruminants are the leading cause. This rhetoric and other negative messages about beef production have reduced trust in the industry. However, the facts are in favor of the beef industry; producers need to provide the data through the supply chain to create the transparency the consumer demands. The demand for beef and prices remains high but we must continue to share the message of the beef industry.

Petre explains the importance of data transparency to meet consumer demands.

Fall’s arrival brings many things including the return of our elected officials to Ottawa and the much anticipated Canadian Cattle Association’s (CCA) annual BBQ on the Hill to help kick-off the fall session of Parliament. Our team in Ottawa worked hard to make this year’s event a resounding success.

Hosting a BBQ-style reception on the Hill is a great meeting place for CCA directors and staff to connect with Parliamentarians and their staff and informally discuss the policy priorities of cattle producers in the lead up to the consultation for the next federal budget. We enjoyed having so many of our Parliamentary colleagues – new and old – join us for a delicious and nutritious burger made from certified sustainable beef. This was a fitting touch following our successful “Don’t Label My Beef” campaign last spring.

Here’s a snapshot of the priorities that we will continue to discuss with Parliamentarians and government officials throughout the fall session.

Adverse weather

The impacts of the adverse weather – drought and flooding - in the prairies are still top of mind. Minister Bibeau’s announcement of the initial regions eligible for the Livestock Tax Deferral provision on August 30, 2022, was welcomed news for many cattle producers, but we know some regions have been overlooked. This announced list of designated regions is preliminary, and more regions will likely be added as forage yield information becomes available. We continue to advocate for all impacted producers to be included. Longer term, CCA is seeking to have the Livestock Tax Deferral provisions available for producers to self-elect to manage through adverse events that result in the forced sales of cattle.

FMD Vaccine Bank

With many areas of the world being foot and mouth disease (FMD) positive, CCA continues to advocate for the establishment of a Canadian vaccine bank of 30 million doses with 2.5 million of 12 different strains as part of our emergency preparedness plan. While FMD has not been detected in North America, the risk still exists, as the world opens to more frequent travel. FMD is the most economically and socially devastating livestock disease threat to Canada and is highly contagious to livestock and wildlife.

There is a vaccine bank in the United States (U.S.), we cannot count on having access to it, as there aren’t enough doses to meet the needs of U.S. producers, if disease was found in North America. For this reason, it is important that Canada is not reliant on the U.S. and have an inhouse vaccine bank. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency agrees with us on this point, but the challenge remains securing the funding needed to support establishing and maintaining the doses. CCA will continue to build on our advocacy efforts on this issue and this will be a key ask in our submission for pre-budget consultations.

To help protect our livestock and wildlife populations and our

economy, everyone plays a role in stopping the spread of FMD. If you are returning from an FMD positive country, please report this to the Canadian Border Services Agency and avoid contact with livestock or agricultural operations for at least five days, and 14 days if you have been in rural areas or in close contact with livestock. It is also recommended that footwear should be left behind if you know you’ve been in a country that’s positive.

Trade

Trade continues to be an important priority for us. Our team is actively engaging the Government when it comes to the negotiation of new trade agreements and reviews to existing agreements to ensure that Canadian cattle producers benefit from expanded market access. CCA continues to monitor the negotiations of the Canada-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement and raising the importance with both elected and department officials of addressing technical barriers found in the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) that are limiting Canada’s beef exports to the European Union (EU).

With the fifth anniversary of CETA’s implementation on September 21, 2022, frustrated Canadian cattle producers were reminded of the continuing imbalance of the beef trade between Canada and the EU. CCA’s advocacy work continues to address the technical barriers that are plaguing this agreement. Earlier this year, CCA submitted scientific evidence on why the EU should recognize the efficacy of Canada’s food safety system. We remain hopeful that their review of the science will result in the approval of the way things are done in Canada. This approval will pave the way for both Canada and the EU to enjoy beneficial growth in bilateral beef trade in the future.

Environment and sustainability Lastly, with the launch of our new brand in July, we hope to create more opportunities to share our positive story when it comes to raising cattle in Canada and how we are a world leader in sustainable beef production.

With the myths of the negative impacts of beef production on the environment, it is important that we highlight to the Government how the Canadian beef industry, through the 2020-2024 National Beef Strategy and our 2030 goals, are aligned with their climate change targets. We can also share our progress through the identified specific metrics and illustrate how we continue to make improvements. If we don’t tell our story, we can be sure that someone else will. We are taking that story to meetings with Ottawa decision makers. This is being supported by a digital campaign targeted at the Ottawa Parliamentary area. Environmental pressure on our industry continues from many players. We are making sure that the cattle production story is being presented accurately.

Best wishes for a successful and safe fall with positive returns on your labour for the fall calf run and harvest.

Our Deepest Sympathies

Brian Good, lifelong resident of the Red Deer area passed away on Tuesday, July 19, 2022 in Red Deer, Alberta, at the age of 68 years.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Lynanne; daughter, Tracy (Curtis); son, Kevin (Arminnie); grandchildren, Dan Huss (Jess), Ethan, Kyler, Jenae and Mason; brother, Stan (Roxann) and their children, Lauren (Stephanie) and Nathan; as well as many family and friends. Brian was predeceased by his parents, Glen and Dorothy (Dot).

Loss of Brian Good (“Mr. Angus”)

The Canadian Angus fraternity is saddened to share the news of Brian Good’s passing. Brian, also known in beef circles as “Mr. Angus”, was the Canadian Angus Association’s longest-serving employee when he retired after nearly 21 years of service in February 2021. Brian travelled around the world representing Canadian Angus and no matter where he went, he seemed to know everyone and always had time for cup of coffee and a chat. He will be greatly missed.

GOOD, Brian Glenn

December 29, 1953 – July 19, 2022

Brian began his career with the CAA on June 15, 2000 and played an integral role in the growth of the Angus breed across Canada and the Canadian Angus brand internationally. As well as being the face of the CAA across Canada at auction marts, sales, events and in the pastures across Canada, Brian also represented the CAA abroad on many occasions in places such as China, the USA, Mexico, Russia and the UK. Angus was a lifelong endeavour for Brian and his family. He was raised in a purebred family Angus operation, Black Browe Cattle Co. After the main herd was sold in 1991, Brian, his wife Lynanne and their children Kevin and Tracy, continued to operate for a few years as Allwest Ranch before Brian began working in the beef industry as an export fieldman and then in sales management before joining CAA. Brian’s key responsibilities were to support auction markets, promote the Angus breed and work with the commercial cattle industry. He maintained a reliable presence at Angus feeder sales, bull sales, industry events and auction marts throughout this career. He made many lifelong friends through his work and kept in touch with many of those who met through his job during his retirement. It was the highlight of his career to receive the Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC) Industry Champion Award at the 2019 LMAC Convention.

Of Lomond, beloved husband of Joyce, passed away at Vulcan Extendicare on August 24, 2022 at the age of 82 years. Darrell was born August 2, 1940 to Fred and Viola Maronda in Vulcan, AB.

Darrell is survived by his wife Joyce and daughters Shelley Maronda, Cheryl Blanchette and Grandchildren Bailey, Morgan and Michael. Darrell also had four great grandchildren Warren, Isiah, Trinity and Marley. Darrell was predeceased by his parents Fred and Viola, Shelley’s partner Jim McKay, brother Ron, sister Donna Ray Teasdale and son Warren Maronda.

MARONDA, Darrell
