Proposed CSA By-law Changes

017 has approached the mid-way point, and the Canadian Simmental Association Convention taking place in Fredericton, New Brunswick is just around the corner. During Convention the CSA Annual General Meeting will be held to conduct the Association’s business, and will provide reporting to the CSA membership. As I had mentioned in the spring issue of Simmental Country, one of the more important segments of the Annual General Meeting this year will be voting on by-law changes that would see the removal of voting by proxy ballots. If this by-law change is approved, proxy ballots will be replaced with a mail-in ballot process that will be conducted through the CSA office directly to each CSA member. The process proposed is similar to that used by other cattle breed Associations and will allow each CSA member to directly and confidentially vote on items such as future by-law changes, and on elections of members to the CSA board of directors. This will also ensure that the exact wishes of the member will be followed, which may not be the case currently with signing a proxy and giving it to another individual to carry to the meeting. It is felt by many that the proxy process currently being used is not confidential, and also depends on the trust placed in the person who is given the proxy as they may not actually be the one carrying your vote, or vote according to your wishes. An extra benefit of the change is speeding up, and simplifying the AGM registration process considerably.

4

A second by-law change being proposed this year is to move to a set number of directors for each province or region. It is felt that this structure, which is also used by other breed Associations, will more accurately guarantee the structure of the CSA board to reflect the enrollment, registration and transfer activity in each province or region on a proportional basis. If both by-laws are accepted, vacant director positions will be filled through voting by the CSA membership, from those provinces or regions by mail-in ballot beginning in 2018. Since introducing these changes in my last Gatepost, packages have been sent to all active CSA members across Canada. These packages contained Convention material that included an 18 page document, which outlined in detail the wording of the by-law changes. We encourage you to read the document. If you will be voting on the changes in person or via proxy and have questions, please feel free to contact me. Voting by proxy will remain in effect for this year, and until any by-law change is approved by the membership. Summer is always a busy time. We wish you all the best with your hay and silage operations, and hope that you will make plans to join us at one of the many 50th Anniversary events taking place across Canada. Also, a reminder to check this issue of Simmental Country and the CSA website for information on the Simmental Conference of the Americas, the Canadian National Simmental Show and Sale, as well as the final events of the 50th Anniversary celebrations!

Breed Improvement Simmental Genetic Trends (1995-2015) By ASA Staff

T

he ASA’s mission reads, “The success of the American Simmental Association is dependent on the success of our members. In turn, our members’ success is dependent on their cattle making an important and significant contribution to the beef industry. The highest priority is to maintain and nurture services and products, which bring value to ASA members’ customers.” We can all argue whether we are Ford or Chevy people, Pepsi vs. Coke, Apple vs. Microsoft, Verizon vs. AT&T. However, loyalty to a brand can only get you so far; to be a successful long-term business, the business must offer a valuable product to the consumer. In the seedstock business, there are layers of customers to consider. Seedstock breeders must offer genetics (bulls and females) that add value to the beef industry for the cow/calf producer, the feedlot, the packer, and ultimately the consumer. While there isn’t always a direct line of communication throughout all sectors of the beef cycle, if the genetics stop adding value to any one point along the chain, you can bank on a decrease in demand for those genetics. How are Simmental genetics adding value to the commercial cattle industry? Read this article to see the progress Simmental breeders made in many economically relevant traits and in the economic indexes, All Purpose Index ($API) and Terminal Index ($TI) during the past 20 years. The tables below provide the average EPD values (from the Spring 2017 EPDs) for purebred Simmental cattle born in 1995, 2005, and 2015 for the following traits: Calving Ease (CE), Maternal Calving Ease (MCE), Stayability (STAY), Milk (MLK), Docility (DOC), Weaning Weight (WW), Post Weaning Average Daily Gain (ADG), Yearling Weight (YW), Carcass Weight (CW), Yield Grade (YG), Marbling (MRB), Ribeye area (REA), and Shear Force (SF), and the average $API and $TI. Except for MCE, which hasn’t changed much, all traits are moving in the right direction corresponding to a steady increase in $API and $TI over the past 20 years. While some may think a drop in Milk would be a negative trend, decreased milk coupled with an increase in weaning weight translates to increased efficiency. Simmental cattle are weaning heavier calves on cows that likely take less to maintain due to the drop in the genetic trend in milk production. The average $API has grown from roughly $81.1 to $121.7/ exposure. While $TI has not increased as sharply as $API, $TI has still improved from roughly $55.1 to $67.7/exposure in the last 20 years. This translates to an increase of $40.6 and $11.6 per cow exposed for $API and $TI, respectively. Year of Birth CE MCE STAY MLK DOC 1995 2.9 8.4 5.5 27.1 7.6 2005 7.0 8.9 10.6 22.7 9.5 2015 9.3 8.7 11.5 21.1 10.8

Figure 1 illustrates the positive genetic trends in purebred Simmentals born in 1995 to 2015. Please note, the graph is not in actual EPD units. Rather, each trait has been standardized (divided by the standard deviation and the 1995 EPD value set to zero). By standardizing these EPDs and setting them all to zero at 1995, we can compare relative changes among the ten EPDs. Again, you can see that Simmental cattle have made improvements in each of these traits over the last 20 years especially in marbling and calving ease. The selection pressure in these economically relevant traits can be seen in the increase in the selection indexes ($API and $TI; Figure 2) over the same duration. These trends show large improvements in Calving Ease and Marbling - adding value from start to finish in the beef cycle. Simmental cattle continue to have positive weaning weight and ADG trends, important economically relevant traits to both cow/calf producers and feedlots. Simmental genetics are getting a bigger piece of the market share in recent years likely due to the continued selection for a product valuable to all sectors of the beef cycle. Keep up the good work Simmental breeders - keep adding value for your customers and you will continue to see success as a breed! Figure 1. Genetic improvement in the average EPD of purebred Simmental cattle born in 1995 to 2015. The traits have been standardized so relative change between traits can be compared.

Figure 2. Change in the average EPD in purebred Simmental cattle born in 1995 to 2015 for the All Purpose Index ($API; use if keeping replacement heifers) and Terminal Index ($TI; use if all calves will be harvested).


From everyone at MRL,

congratulations to Simmental on your 50th Anniversary. We are proud to be a part of the excitement, growth and integrity of the breed over the past 50 years. From humble beginnings of AI, importation of three fullblood females and a vision of the strength of the Simmental breed, we have evolved to one of North America’s largest and longest running Simmental herds. From marketing a few bulls out of the front pen in the yard to selling upwards of 170 bulls annually. Throughout the years our philosophy of supplying beef cattle, with sound structure, eye appeal and the do-ability to work under ranch conditions has remained the same. The strength of our program is almost 50 years in the making. The most gratifying segment of our duration in the business has been the great people and customers we have had the privilege to work with over the years - too many to mention - but we have made many terrific friends over the years. Thank you to each and every one of you for your interest in MRL genetics and your friendship, as we look forward to the next 50 years together.

From the Director’s Chair

Celebrating 50 Years!

Lee McMillen – Canadian Simmental Association President

W

hen I was first approached by those with Simmental Country to give some insight about our operation and the breed for this 50th Anniversary edition, I was quite humbled. Many of the questions pertaining to the early years of Simmental in Canada would be better answered by my father, Jim McMillen. I have had a passion for, and have been very involved in the Simmental breed from the late 70’s to present day and currently sit as President of the Canadian Simmental Association. I often think back to my dad in his early 20’s in 1969 and 1970, and the steps he took to make a substantial investment in the Simmental breed, which was brand new to Canada. He purchased semen to artificially inseminate our Hereford and Angus based cowherd and imported 3 full-blood females. Over the years, many achievements we were involved in include the Border 9 group and prelude to spring sales to present day hosting our own annual bull sale at the ranch with 170 bulls on offer. Some of my early memories are summer and fall shows and sales, and summer field days all revolving around quality Simmental cattle. You could probably say that Simmental cattle and ranching in southeast Saskatchewan have consumed every waking minute of our lives for the past several generations. Our operation started with my father, Jim and his brother Mike, to present day with Mom and Dad still very active along with myself, my brother Dave and our families. In fact, the next generation is starting to be quite active in day to day operations. What drew Dad to the breed would most likely be the added growth and maternal values of the breed, and how they contribute to the crossbreeding on British based cattle. What has kept us involved in the breed, would be similar to what got us interested in it, as well as probably the outstanding people involved in the Simmental industry over the years. The success of the Simmental breed has as much influence from the people involved as the cattle themselves. As far as some of the changes over the years, I think Simmental breeders have done an outstanding job of moderating frame, while maintaining structural soundness and maternal integrity. Of course color has been altered in many cases, and birth weight has been reduced from early years. We have truly created a beast that fits the present day crossbreeding scenario in Canada’s beef industry. Changes have been made within the Simmental breed over the years in terms of frame, calving ease and color but growth and maternal values have been maintained. As for some of the highlights in the breed I have witnessed, there would be many. I can still remember the excitement as a little kid at some tif the first Agribition sales that were packed to the rafters and can still feel the buzz around some of the present day major consignment and production sales all these years later. The acceptance of the breed from the commercial industry today would definitely be one of our biggest achievements as a breed. What got me interested in joining the CSA National Board of Directors would be my passion for the breed, and that decisions made around the board table pertain to my livelihood, success and future of the breed. What are some of the highlights of my tenure on the CSA

16

Board? Well, let me start by saying everyone should take the time to fill a CSA Directors position for a term. It is exciting to say the least and things are always on the move within the entire industry. If you are thinking you have an opinion on a certain issue, by the time you go around the table of Directors and industry personnel and it is time to make a decision on that issue, you may have a change of heart or for sure a different perspective always keeping in mind that your position is to represent the total membership of the breed on these issues. It is quite humbling to be president of the CSA on its 50th Anniversary as my thoughts wander back to all of the CSA Presidents, Directors, staff and members before present day. In the issues at hand and the decisions that have been made, in most cases I would have to say we have always made positive educated decisions to move the breed forward to our 50th year. I have had the privilege to work with a great group of Directors and staff over my tenure here as CSA President. Our breed is plentiful with outstanding, knowledgeable cattlemen and women that make up our membership. The Simmental breed has evolved into one of a small handful of contributing beef breeds, if not the most influential player in the North American beef industry. The type and attributes that Simmental cattle offer the Canadian Commercial Cattleman in their crossbreeding operations is hard to deny. As Simmental breeders, we should be proud of the product we offer, and ever mindful of keeping up with where we are headed next. Why is the 50th Anniversary special to me, and where do I see the breed in the next 50 years? Well, from a personal perspective I am proud that our operation has been involved for all these years, as the average life of a purebred operation I believe is less than 7 years. There has been a ton of blood, sweat and tears, but for sure the accomplishments, friendships and enjoyable memories far outweigh the trying ones as an operation, and as a breed. I am also proud of the position the Simmental breed sits as a major player in Canada’s beef industry on our 50th Anniversary. It has taken generations of insight, good decision making, and hard work by hundreds of individuals and operations to get to this point. Everyone involved in Simmental past and present should be proud! In the next 50 years, I see Simmental continuing to hold a huge market share in the Canadian beef industry, and as in the past it will take strong leadership, a sense of where we have been, where we are now, and where we are headed. We need to keep up with industry, producer and consumer demands into the future. In closing, I would like to congratulate everyone that has contributed to the success of Simmental in Canada over the past 50 years. Be sure to take in one or all of the 50th Anniversary celebrations across the country this summer and fall, it is a huge milestone worthy of celebrating. Yours truly, Lee McMillen Canadian Simmental Association President Proud Simmental Rancher

50th Anniversary

Panel Questions

In means of celebrating the last 50 years of Simmental in Canada, Simmental Country is asking those that have been involved from the beginning of the breed for their input on the past, present and future of Simmental, individuals involved in this panel questionnaire come from different backgrounds from various parts of the country. This feature article will appear in the remaining Simmental Country magazines this year.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 Explain your background and involvement within the Simmental breed – past and present. BONNIE GLASMAN: My introduction to the Simmental breed began with my marriage to Miles Glasman from Russell, Manitoba. I was raised on a mixed family farm in southern Ontario where we finished ‘western steers’ and grew various crops. Growing up I belonged to the local 4-H beef club showing Black Angus for six years. In the early 1970’s, Miles and his father Marshall whom were Black Angus purebred breeders, witnessed the effects that the European breeds were having on the Canadian cattle scene. Miles introduced Simmental into their operation when they tried several of the ‘new breeds’ using artificial insemination. The decision to continue with Simmental genetics was easy when they compared the performance of those first Simmental calves in 1973 to the others. By the time Miles and I married they had dispersed their purebred Black Angus and were breeding purebred Simmental cattle under the farm name M & J Farms. I immediately became involved as Miles and I marketed our cattle at shows and sales across the country. I served 3 terms as a director and the secretarytreasurer of the Manitoba Simmental Association in the 1980’s. I was also elected as a director of the CSA from 2003-2009 and honored to be the first female CSA director to sit on the board. Miles and I continue to breed purebred Simmentals as part of our family operation. DAVID MILLINER: My father bought our first Simmental in 1980, and when we started seeing the results of the crossbreeding, he quickly bought into the breed and purchased a whole herd of Simmental cows to accelerate the process. In 1993 Gayle and I moved back to the family farm and in 2001, we started converting to red and black Simmentals. At that time, we started partnering with the Wooddisse family to purchase bulls and to be part of the Marywood Sales. Our focus is on producing bulls with performance, complimented by high index carcass data. We concentrate selection on cow families and producing females that fit the needs of commercial cattlemen. Over the years I have served twice on the Ontario Simmental Board, one term on the CSA Board and for many years on the BIO Board in Ontario serving as director, Vice-president and currently as President. The BIO services we use are carcass scanning of bulls and heifers, to generate their BIO$ indexes and Across Breed Comparison EPDs that benchmark our Simmental to other cattle breeds. RANDY SANDERSON: I live in Canada’s smallest province – PEI. Together with my family, we farm around 3,000 acres including potatoes, corn, soybeans, barley and all of our own forages. We were one of the first Simmental breeders in the Maritimes to have red and black Simmentals which our herd of 75 cows is made up of. We finish around 600 head per year all going to our local plant. We got our start in the Simmental breed when my dad bought three Simmental heifers from Bill Bursey at the Atlantic Winter Fair in 1987. I remember we had a large string of polled Herefords at that show and my dad came up to me right before the show to tell me he had bought three Simmental heifers. I thought he was crazy, but he knew what he was doing! We also bought at the Canadian Western Agribition to start our Simmental herd. Currently we are breeding to all black bulls and my three kids Tricia, Jaclyn and Dereck are involved in the Young Canadian Simmental Association.

What drew you to the Simmental breed initially? What is it about the breed that has kept you involved in one way or another?

BONNIE GLASMAN: As mentioned, performance initially drew us to the Simmental breed. The ability of Simmentals to convert grass and feed into pounds continues to keep us involved. Simmental’s ability to cross with other cattle breeds has been one of the breed’s most important attributes since its introduction in 1967. The half-blood and 3/4 Simmental cow continues to be one of the best producers available to the commercial cattle industry. Simmental temperament is also most suitable for ourselves, our customers and our environment. Finally the community of Simmental breeders in Canada is a group we have been and continue to be proud to be part of. DAVE MILINER: My father, without my input changing our breed of cattle on the farm, is what initially got us started – and it was a good decision. We had another purebred breed at the time, and one year at

the Royal when my dad was showing Dorset sheep, he purchased a Simmental bull from Cherry Lane Simmentals. So my purebred cow of another breed was bred Simmental when I was living and working in London, Ontario. It was the best calf she ever had. I have stayed with this breed because of that calf, the great people and friends I have in the breed and what this breed can do commercially based on feedback from what our customers tell us. We are in the right breed! RANDY SANDERSON: The milking ability and the ability to cross with the British breeds is what initially drew me to the breed. I think the Simmental breed today is the total package – calving ease, great milking females and it’s easy to market the Simmental steers. We have also met many close friends through our involvement with the Simmental breed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------3 What are some significant changes that you have seen with Simmentals over the last 50 years? BONNIE GLASMAN: The Simmental breed has seen significant changes over the last 50 years. These changes happened for several reasons. Initially the breed was introduced with the importation of European full blood genetics and also developed through an upgrading program to reach purebred level. This resulted in a Canadian Simmental version of the breed that is diverse in color and type offering much to the beef industry both nationally and internationally. These changes have provided genetics that are very desirable for the times. DAVE MILINER: The evolution of the breed over that time has been constant and progressively changing for the better with what I believe were 3 major influencing factors on the Canadian commercial cow herd. It first started with increasing the much needed growth of the cattle of that day, and creating market penetration which also increased the influence that Simmental had in the commercial herds across the country. The second was the regression of excessive frame to a more moderate size, lowering birth weight and increasing body mass with development of black, red and the use of Fleckvieh and South African genetics in influencing the Canadian Simmental herd. This has put Simmental in a great place with the options we now have. The third I believe was the foresight of the CSA Directors of the day that decided to invest in our breed by leveraging Association and Foundation funds to attract significant Government funding to

perform the feed trials, and research meat quality and genetic testing to assist with the development of genomically enhanced EPDs. My generation may not reap the value of those investments, but I believe this is another milestone of Simmental leadership in Canada. Thank you to those people for their insight and visionary decision making, as well as Bruce Holmquist, Sandy Russell and Dr. Steve Miller, along with others for their hard work, leadership and perseverance on those projects. I know there are some that don’t agree with me on this last point, and I respect that. For me I do know there is only one judge right now that can tell me the size of the ribeye, marbling percent and backfat cover in my cattle, and that is the ultrasound technician. If we are in the red meat business those are very important genetic values. I need that data to compliment my phenotype evaluation for certain traits I can’t see visually in order to make the best possible breeding and selection decisions. RANDY SANDERSON: I think the most significant change is in calving ease. We have gone from hard calvings to lively calves at birth that nurse really quick. I have also seen a change from the tall rangy cattle to the stout, heavy middled type of cattle, that are sought after by all breeds. I have also seen an improvement in the structure of the feet and legs. The Simmental female is probably the best replacement female you can buy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4 What are some of the main highlights or accomplishments you’ve witnessed over the years with Simmental? BONNIE GLASMAN: The acceptance of the Simmental breed into the North American beef industry is one of the most important accomplishments we have witnessed. The impact of Simmental on the beef herd is huge in such a short span of time. The Simmental breed has developed and continues to develop to meet the needs of the beef industry. DAVE MILINER: The “wow” events for me was at a sale in Ontario in the very early 70’s with dad, when half and three quarter bloods were commanding crazy money for very ordinary cattle. Attending my first Bar 5 Bull Sale in Manitoba was an eye opener of numbers and consistency. The CSA Annual meeting in Quebec City was a blast and a great people event that culminated with Good Brothers concert at Doug Nimmo’s Sale. The visits to Kingfield during the Ontario Weekend Sales hosted by the Burns family was always a highlight in our area in those days. It was an opportunity to meet people from

across Canada that forged relationships with the many great people in this breed. RANDY SANDERSON: Some accomplishments we have achieved in the Simmental breed include exhibiting the 2014 Supreme Champion bull at Expo Boeuf, who also went on to become the National Champion Simmental Bull at the 2014 Royal Winter Fair, Reserve Junior Champion Simmental bull at the Canadian Western Agribition and qualified for the RBC Supreme show at Agribition. We were the first from PEI to exhibit in the RBC Supreme show at Agribition. It was quite an honour for an exhibitor and breeder from PEI. Another highlight was buying the first black bull from Lewis Farms, and buying several more bulls over the years from them. Over time our friendship grew. In February 2011, when my wife needed a double lung transplant, the Lewis family offered me a job while we were in Alberta and helped make a difficult time a little easier. Thanks to the Lewis Family for everything you did to help us. 25


5 Where do you see the breed sitting today within the beef industry? BONNIE GLASMAN: The Simmental breed sits as one of the most important players in the beef industry today and in the future. Simmental’s diverse genetic base provide unlimited cross breeding options and opportunities for the entire commercial cattle industry. Maternal and performance traits continue to be Simmental’s strengths. DAVE MILINER: Simmental as a breed is well asserted in Canada and better positioned now than it has ever been. Simmental offers the beef industry better quality and heritable traits that will complement and enhance cattle in cross breeding programs more than any other breed. We also have diversity of options in our breed to create change, adapt to market trends and regional environmental conditions. Why do I say this? Well growth, maternal, milk and performance are the easy ones. From a neighbor who feeds cattle, I learned our feed conversion ability has gained Simmental respect in the feedlots and that is growing. The ability of Simmental to marble efficiently as a ratio to backfat

is a huge benefit of Simmental performance cattle that we need to promote and not lose sight of that ability or we will be just like our main competitor. Anyone can feed cattle, make them fat so they look good, to get marbling to hit grades, but at what feeding cost. Marbling at 4 to 5% (AAA) with backfat in the 5 to 8 mm range, Simmental can do that on average while others are challenged to be less than 10 mm. This impacts lean meat yield dramatically. Feed conversion rates affects bottom lines drastically. I believe as producers we need to think more about this with rising land and machinery prices. Feeder cattle are like employees, the longer you have them the more you pay to keep them going. Less days to market is a feature of Simmental we can also boast about. RANDY SANDERSON: I think the breed is in a really good position today with the calving ease and the thickness of the bulls that are on offer. I think the Simmental female is the best replacement heifer in the marketplace today and is also effective in cross breeding.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6 Suggestions you may have for the Simmental breed or a young individual looking to start within the breed? BONNIE GLASMAN: Simmental breeders should continue to produce moderate framed cattle that are sound in structure. Select for traits that serve and meet the needs of the beef industry. As far as new breeder advice... focus on developing a program that works for you, your environment and your customer base. Resist the urge to chase fads and stay the course! DAVE MILINER: For the Simmental breed and the Association, that is easy for me. From my business experience it is the same regardless of what business you are in. First, continue to be innovative or you will be left in someone else’s dust. Second, accept change because it is coming, we just don’t know what it looks like today. Lastly, establish goals, work with what you have, recognize the strengths of your product, your strength and those within your family to provide the support to the business, and follow it up with customer service. Easy to say, but hard to do. What I mean is recognize what we have as assets and short comings. As an Association one of our assets is our youth and continuing to work with them is very important as they are our future leaders. By investing in and supporting our young people we will go a long way to support Simmental as a breed that will

26

be respected for years. Know when to get out of the way of our YCS to let them make decisions, and yes make some mistakes as that is part of the learning process, and as breeders don’t be like a meddling hockey parent. They are our future. As breeders it is our customers, their satisfaction with your product that is paramount to your success; without them you have nothing. For young people starting into the breed, I suggest you are in the right breed. Journey down your own path, do your research, make decisions based on as much information as you can gather and production results. Consult in people you have confidence in and buy the best you can afford. Expensive cattle don’t always translate into success and learn from mistakes that others may have already made. RANDY SANDERSON: The diversity of the breed today will let a new breeder decide which way they want to go within their program. The advice I would give to someone looking to start within the breed is to stand behind your product, and don’t chase fads. I think the breed is right where they need to be now producing big, thick, rugged bulls and thick, feminine females that can produce and raise great calves.


The

future depends on what we do

I

n 2017 we not only celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, but the 50th anniversary of the Simmental breed in Canada as well. I am aging myself, but I certainly remember the past 50 years since Parisan was brought to Canada. I have always said as a veterinarian who practices on a number of purebred breeds, the breeds that “fit” in Canada,would stand the test of time and remain. Simmental followed that trend, and has one of the higher number of memberships and registrations of the “exotic” or continental breeds in Canada. Something you should all be proud of! Purebred breeders have set the bar high and with that, you commercial breeders have followed as far as selecting for growth, reproduction and carcass traits. Commercial cattleman also watch closely the herd health program you run. Preventative vaccination programs, parasite control including fly control are a few things that the commercial cattleman can copy in means of manage treatments for sickness. It’s always a two way street, and is never too late to learn a practice tip, or helpful bit of information. Several things have changed along the way that has bettered the Simmental breed in Canada. Phenotype has evolved to a more moderate size, from the very tall and stretchy animal of thirty years ago when we talked a lot about frame score. Frame score is something rarely talked about these days. Initially birth weights got very high, but by selection for calving ease, soon our calving problems revolved more around the infrequent misrepresentation or sorting out twins. A lively calf was the goal, and calving percentages are very high in most of our herds The color of the breed has also changed over the years, and we all became very adept at knowing how color is inherited with many checking for instance for homozygosity of black color. Traditional Simmentals gained a lot of pigment in the udder/scrotum and around the eyes. I remember doing a lot of scoring of scrotal pigment, or eye pigment in the earlier days. Something we don’t even think of doing now where virtually all cattle are 100% in all categories. Rare is the day one sees a traditional bull with no eye pigment. The red and black lines are a slam dunk in this category, and many medical problems such as pinkeye, cancer eye, and sunburn have been clearly cut down. We sometimes forget about how infrequent these medical conditions have become by simple selection, and maybe don’t give ourselves enough credit for the changes the Simmental breed has made over the years. Docility is definitely something Simmentals possess. 30

The early years saw a few genetic lines that were quickly eliminated by Simmental breeders. We all like the somewhat possessive cow at calving, but most are very reasonable and with safety of our farm workers always in the forefront a quieter animal has been the result. This combined with proper handling techniques and good facilities (many with hydraulic chutes) makes processing cattle almost fun! I seldom see a wild bull, and I semen test a lot of bulls within a year, so that is a true testament to you, the purebred breeders, to continually select for docility. Fertility of both bulls and females has greatly improved over the last 50 years. With fertility testing of sale bulls becoming an accepted practice, selection based on scrotal circumference and fertility, combined with selection for feet and legs the quality of breeding bulls going out today is first class. Diligent breeders, combined with competent veterinarians have led to this rapid confidence in bull selection. We have in my opinion come far enough in scrotal circumference, as once an ideal size is reached, too big is not desirable either. Bulls are selected for many different criteria, including information including EPDs, genomic testing for color, carcass quality and polledness there is lots of information to go over. The future may hold specific genomic testing for resistance to disease or parasites. As with all genomic testing, one can’t select for only one trait and ignore the others. On the cow side, fertility has led also to greater longevity. A greater advent of synchronized breeding and timed AI has definitely been a good strategy to improve the genetic gain in both purebred and commercial Simmentals. It is good to see most commercial producers finally getting back to the finite breeding seasons. That way, we avoid the older calves getting bred by herd sires,and the calves are much more uniform from a marketing perspective. Simmental breeders have embraced the reproductive technologies of collecting semen both for sale (domestically and abroad) and on farm usage. Embryo transplanting has been utilized, and advancements in in-vitro fertilization combined with genomic testing of young stock allow you as breeders to speed up genetic selection. Many of these genetics have been exported worldwide and Canada’s genetic pool is highly respected. I mentioned polledness already, but it is interesting to see how by genetic selection we seldom have to talk about dehorning. Producers have eliminated the need for almost all the dehorning methods, simply by selecting and that is admirable.


The whole industry benefits over those kinds of decisions. The feed lots and packers have enjoyed the advancement of Simmentals in the carcass category where higher, and higher weight gains (often >4 lbs /daily) along with feed conversions improving down to 6:1 ratios and with carcass size increasing. Simmentals can be a perfect fit into this market as you all already know. Simmental genetics can improve the yield grade of the carcass with many times the overall actual grade not changing. What the world essentially needs is more pounds of beef, and seed stock producers start that whole process. Milk production has always been of paramount significance along with udder and teat selection being other culling criteria in our replacement females. The rest of the veterinary profession and myself look forward to working with the Simmental breeders in advancing this breed even further into the future. From a preventative health standpoint, more vaccines including intranasal and immune stimulants will continue to be developed. Earlier detection methods for disease will be developed, and all these things combined should drastically cut down antimicrobial usage. I hope bureaucratic red tape with the CFIA will perhaps be more streamlined,so export and health testing can continue in a cost effective manner and still keep the Canadian cattle herd safe. Otherwise the cost/benefit could restrict movement. Certain reportable disease outbreaks can play havoc on the markets,

and we all need to practice ever-vigilant biosecurity. Never stop trying to curtail disease transmission; there are simple steps to make that happen. Try to read or go to conferences, shows and trade fairs to gain more knowledge and keep up to date. Ask questions if ever in doubt. With increasing technologies such as video sales becoming common place,these all save us labor. The breed has come along way in 50 years, and is continually improving and advancing. We all know to get breeding stock too fat is a no-no. There may be changes in show standards or more data such as ultrasound and body condition scoring, which may be taken into account in the show ring. Continue to support the leaders in your breed and on your association. Develop good relationships with other professionals, such as your veterinarian, nutritionist, pharmaceutical or handling equipment dealer rep. Together we can continue to advance your breed and ultimately help to feed the world! It seems like yesterday Parisien was touring around and for his day, was an extremely good specimen for registrant number one. The only constant is change, and the Simmental breed has embraced that over the years. It shows in the popularity they continue to keep going forward. Be proud of how far the breed has advanced in a positive way and contribute to the further improvement it will make.

Adair Ranch is thankful for the opportunity to be part of the Canadian Simmental breed. We are grateful for the many friendships and support we have experienced over the years.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF

SIMMENTAL IN CANADA! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since the first Simmental bull, Parisien, was imported to Canada. This was an event that created history and changed the Canadian Beef Industry. Since then the Simmental Breed has been a tremendous success story as it has progressed into becoming one of the most influential beef cattle breeds in North America.

Simmental breeders from across Canada are preparing to celebrate our 50th Anniversary events. Be sure to mark your calendar and plan to join the excitement! More details to come in the upcoming months. For any questions please contact your Provincial Simmental Association or Rae-Lee Erickson at the Canadian Simmental Association office rerickson@simmental.com

The story behind Travers Smith and the Development of the Simmental breed in North America

T

Story By: Ted Pritchett, August 1987

he dream was a better beef animal – the dreamer – Travers Smith of Cardston, Alberta, and the bull Parisien – the first Simmental in North America.

When people saw the bull they laughed. One cowboy saw him tied to a fence at Prairie Breeders, then located at the Same Hector Ranch, south of Calgary. He laughed too, and asked, “What would anyone want with a red Holstein?” The year was 1967, the second year of the European imports and the bull was indeed about as far out of place as a bull could be. Long, lean, tall and not heavily muscled, he was in complete contrast to every beef breed here at the time. Even the new Charolais French imports, while taller and bigger than the British breeds, were thick and heavily muscled. The domestic Purebred Charolais were tall, long and lean, but their breeders were crossing them with the new French imports to get them thicker, more muscled and heavier boned.

Parisien

Parisien, it seemed, was the thorn among the roses. In later years, he became just that – only he became a thorn in the side of the established British breeds.

The Simmental situation couldn’t be compared to Charolais even though they shared many similar characteristics – Charolais already had an 11 year start in Canada using domestic cattle imported from the United States and Mexico before the imports from Europe began. Charolais were building on an established niche in the beef business. True it was a small niche at that time, but still the breed was becoming accepted by more and more commercial cattlemen. There was already a Purebred base and a Purebred business established. For Simmental, it was all new ground to be broken. If the breed was to grow, and prosper, it would be done by convincing commercial cattlemen there was an advantage in crossbreeding to Simmental. This was years before the cattle business would go wild, madly breeding to every new breed, simply because it was new, and to capitalize on the fantastic prices being paid for half blood females. In fact Parisien was imported before the first Charolais sale of Imported Fullbloods gave any indication as to the value of the imports, and, if the importers could even recover their importing costs. Looking back now, that situation is difficult to believe. The early Charolais importers pushed for importing to better the growth and performance of their cattle. Few if any expected the unheard of prices they would eventually receive. And so it was with Travers Smith and his idea to import Simmental. Fenton Webster, when asked to recall the events leading up to that first import,

Travers Smith

Fenton Webster of Simmental Breeders Ltd., recalling those days, said “Travers was an innovator with a constant drive to do something different and better – and he was in a hurry to get it done. Most important though, he was able to project his enthusiasm and excitement to others.

Reflecting back today, Simmental breeders may say he wasn’t the best, but no one can dispute, however, that he was the first, and he’ll always be that. It was on his broad back the future of the breed depended, for Simmental were in a unique position.


smiled and ran his hand across his tanned face. “Oh gosh,” he said looking at the ceiling, “that was a long time ago and a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then.” “Travers was always interested in performance testing, crossbreeding and AI. He really believed that was the coming thing, at a time when none of those ideas were popular or accepted by the cattlemen. Performance testing, to the cattlemen, was still something the college professors played with, and AI, they felt, could never be used on the ranches.” “He toyed with the idea of Charolais for a while, but he wanted to start another Association, basing it on performance testing. He visited a lot with Wayne Malmberg, a Charolais breeder from down at Spring Coulee, Alberta, who shared a lot of his ideas. Wayne, in later years, gave Travers a lot of help.” “I guess he got the Simmental bug when he came across an article written by Hobart Peters – a research geneticist in Ottawa. Travers read it and really got interested. Then, he visted with Keith Gregory in the U.S. Keith travelled a lot in Europe and knew what they could do there, and thought they had a lot of potential in this country. Travers was really fired up by this time and came home looking for people to go in on importing a bull with him.” Fenton said “He asked me once if I was interested, and I didn’t really say ‘yes’ or ‘no’, and he never got back to me.” As one old cowboy in the Pincher Creek area recalled later, at the peak in the new breed markets, “Travers came one afternoon, all excited. He was talking something about importing a new breed all the way from Europe. He could hardly say the name and I didn’t even bother trying. He wanted me to throw $500 in the pot and we’d all be rich because these cattle would be the breed of the future and take over the country. Well – I’d known Travers for years, and he was always working on something new – if it wasn’t Herefords, it was sheep, and if it wasn’t sheep, it was quarter horses. Anyways, when he came at me with that wild scheme – I just laughed and said, “Ah Travers – go ‘way with you – that’s crazy!” Sadly, he shook his head as he recalled that day – “Can you imagine! I could’ve been part of Parisien for 500 bucks. A million dollar bull and I could’ve been in on it for $500!”

Travers eventually got another local rancher, “B.Y.” Williams, interested, and it was really those two that were responsible for getting the job done. They put together a syndicate made up of Travers, “B.Y.”, Shem Williams and Orson Bingham, (both dentists), Guy Bowlby, James Blackmore, Harold Watson (brother-in-law to Travers) and his brother, Frank Smith. These were the original members of what later became SBL. No imports were allowed yet out of Switzerland as all the health work and negotiations had been done to get Charolais, only, out of France. Travers flew to Europe and with the help of Wayne Malmberg, selected a calf. That calf was Parisien. Wayne Malmberg, the pioneer Charolais breeder, tells his part in the adventure. “We’ve got about 9,000 breeds in the country now, and for a long time I had to take all the blame because I brought the first Charolais in. Then Travers came along and he took the rest. I’d known Travers Smith for years. In fact, we were neighbors at one time, at Mountain View, Alberta.” “In 1965, when we went over, to select the first Charolais, Travers asked me to find out what I could about Simmental. So I went to this Agriculture outfit in Paris, but they couldn’t find anything about Simmental. We looked through some books and I finally said – there – that’s them. Well, you see – they called them Pie Rouge in France and that’s actually what Parisien is – Pie Rouge. “Anyway, the next year, 1966, I was in France again, and Travers took us down into Dijon to look at bulls. I remember Ray Woodward went with us too. As a calf Parisien wasn’t as square as the bulls we were picking and would be classed today as the good modern kind. As far as I was concerned, he was a good beef outfit – longer than our Herefords. “You know,” he pauses to chuckle. “after all the free advice I gave Travers – I should’ve taken some of his. I was too stupid to put $500 in their outfit – but then of course,” he adds, “I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my time.” So the bull arrived in 1967, costing a total of $8,000. That same year, Hans Ulrich and Fenton Webster came in the group. Now came the job of selling the idea of the new breed, then getting people to use it.

39


The fact it was a new breed didn’t hold much water with a lot of people. In fact that was more of a detriment than a selling point. People need a real good reason to change before they’d give much thought to changing what they were doing. The group set about giving them the proof they wanted. The bull was quarantined in 1967, on the Smith ranch, and bred to as many cows as possible that first year.

just about everyone in the building in to hear what we had to say and to see the pictures. I’ve never seen such enthusiasm.” “We got into see Hobart Peters about 3:30 that afternoon, Hobart was the fellow that had written the article Travers had read and that got him interested in Simmental in the first place. Well – it came to closing time and Hobart’s wife came to pick him up, but he said ‘I just can’t let you fellows get away – this is so interesting.’ We had supper with them and then came back the next morning for breakfast too.” The reception in the rest of Canada was cool, however Fenton attributes it to the old Canadian way of being cautious. “We tried to get into several meetings, including the Western Stockgrowers, but everywhere we got a cool, skeptical reception.”

At this point, the ball was in Parisien’s court. It was all up to him now. No amount of talk, promotion or enthusiasm would replace results. If he was a hard calver, if his calves didn’t come on and grow, or if they didn’t appeal to the cattlemen, the breed was finished. Not only the future of Simmental but indeed, everything to follow, depended on Parisien and his first calves. It’s all history now, of course, and one of those “dreams come true” that every serious cattleman dreams about at some time or another. When his calves hit the ground, people were impressed. They calved from cows without any problems and went on to grow at unbelievable rates. They lived up to the owners’ expectations and simply astonished everyone else. The local neighbors had watched the activities with interest, and now were sold on the idea, after seeing the calves for themselves. Travers and his band now had something concrete to promote, confident they were on the right track. “We never really had any doubts,” Fenton says, “but it was a relief to get a good set of calves and that gave us real confidence.” A few of those first calves were sold to Allan Dixon for $500, right off the cows, and he kidded the fellows about how much he paid for them at the time. Years later as Fenton recalls – the first 7/8 heifer, resulting from those original cows, brought him $25,000. They took hundreds of pictures, and the slides of those first half-blood calves were assembled into slide show presentations. They started giving the presentation everywhere they could. One of the first stops was Ottawa. “We had been given just 20 minutes with Bud Olsen – the Minister of Agriculture. That meeting lasted over an hour. The next stop was with Dr. Ken Wells – the Veterinary Director General. Again, that was to be a brief stop, but Ken ended up calling 40

The first big break came in the United States. “We went to PRI meetings in Sheridan, Wyoming. They had given us permission to show our presentation at the end of the meeting, but when Dr. Bob Long, one of the speakers for the meeting was late, they asked us to show our slides then. In the past, when we came on, everyone left, but not this time – everyone stayed and listened. Dr. Long came in just as we were finishing up and he insisted we show him the whole thing that evening. He brought some other people with him and I think we stayed up all night. It was evident at that time, at least, that the greatest potential was in the U.S., and it was here they concentrated their early promotion efforts. “We hired Don Jensen, an AI technician who knew both the cattle business and the AI trade inside and out, and put him on the road with Parisien.” At that time there were no exports of the imported animals allowed into the U.S. from Canada, so a $50,000 bond was posted on Parisien to guarantee his return to Canada. Parisien became the most travelled and talked about bull in the cattle industry. “It was remarkable how well he travelled – he seemed to enjoy it.” The Denver show was the first stop and, as Fenton recalls, it was interesting to watch the reaction of the people. By this time Parisien was in the peak of condition and weighing over 2,700 pounds. “Harold Watson and I were in the booth and people came by in the hundreds to see him. He was the talk of the whole show. One old couple, I remember distinctly, they came by and Parisien was lying down. They asked if we might get him up for them. I guess they figured that bull was never going to quit getting up, because there was just more and more of him. They had never seen a bull so big. The real funny part was that old man grabbed his head and howled ‘My God – I’ve got my cows bred to that bull.’ He had bred to the bull without ever having seen a Simmental bull and without realizing just how big they were. Parisien continued travelling, stopping at studs to be collected, and on display at every show possible. Wherever he


went, he drew crowds, and captured the imagination of the news media. “Don and I were in Kansas City and a local TV station had us on for a half-hour show. That went out to over 35,000 people in the immediate area and we had an old fellow come down to the barn on crutches. He’d been in the hospital and seen the show and got his doctor talked into letting him out so he could come down to the barn. He said he just had to see that bull! The real significant indication, of how the breed was to expand in Canada, happened at the Denver show. “That first year, in Denver, there were hundreds of people going by the main pathways. Hereford and Angus breeders would go by in a big group. You could spot them coming by their badges and hat bands. They’d laugh and poke fun, but later they’d come back, one by one, to have a closer look and ask questions. Travers could really get that job done, because he was about as converted a Hereford man as you could find anywhere.” Back in Canada, that period was total pandemonium. There was so much to do – so much to organize and so many opportunities to promote as time could be found in a day for them. There were so many fronts to cover. In addition, there were changes in the company. “B.Y.” Williams, Shem Williams, Orson Bingham and Guy Bowlby all sold their interests back to the other partners. James Blackmore sold his shares to Travers Smith’s six children, known as the 56, represented by Robert. Fenton Webster and Hans Ulrich had bought in the year before. Dale Lynch became a part of the group late in 1968.

calves and seeing for themselves what could be accomplished off ordinary commercial cows. The herd SBL assembled was impressive – the pick of the calves contracted from good commercial herds in the U.S. and Canada. In many cases, it was seeing those females as they developed, that sold breeders on the idea. “Ed Noad came over one afternoon and saw the herd. He said then – if he had that herd in his pasture – he’d figure he had the best herd in the country.” Suddenly, a lot of things clicked into place. For years, the Government and animal scientists had been telling the industry they should be crossbreeding. Many breeders – both commercial and purebred – knew they needed change but for years, the only alternative was Charolais. For many, that change was too drastic as they weren’t prepared to lose the traditional color pattern. With Simmental, the same results could be had without losing the color, and breeders began looking at crossbreeding in a different light. “The real breakthrough came when we had prominent breeders getting into the business, like Ed Noad, and Gordon Burton. We had a field day at Burns. We showed carcasses and the result of the Research Station work. People by this time were ready for a change, especially the commercial people.” Letters began flooding the SBL office at the rate of over 110 a day. “We were working 18 to 20 hours a day trying to keep up with the correspondence. It was an exciting time. The term “Breed ‘Em All Simmental” came out of our office at that time. We were putting an ad together and needing a headline when Bea Tolley said, “Breed ‘Em All Simmental”. We liked it, and it stuck. All during this time, plans were being put together to form an Association, and every possible resource was utilized. “After some show in the U.S., Ray Woodward, Dale Lunch, Lavon Sumption, Travers and I stayed up all one night putting by-law things together. Travers was determined to do things right and he wanted everything based on performance. Originally, we had an idea to require bulls to index 105 to be recorded, but that, like many other ideas, got watered down.”

To get semen out in the country, and to get people using Simmental, semen was put into herds in return for the pick of the heifer calves. Later, more herds were contracted and calves bought back at premium prices. The SBL herd grew from the select picking of these calves. As time went on, however, it was more difficult to get the heifer calves back from the herds, because the herd owners were reluctant to part with them. That was the first and best indication the breed was becoming established. “That was a tremendous job. I remember gathering up to over 800 calves in Montana one fall – gathering, weighing and tattooing the whole works.” The breakthrough, in Canada, came when prominent breeders began taking an interest in the results – looking at the

At various meetings around the country, a constitution slowly began to take shape and August 1, 1969, saw the first organizational meeting held in Calgary. “Lavon and I did all the organizing of that first meeting in Calgary. We got a top notch man – Howard Fredeen – to chair the meeting, and Stan Church on hand to read the law, if necessary. Without knowing all the people, it was tough to even get names together for nominations. We took names at random as people registered and put them on nominating committees. They came up with nominees for Directors. Travers was elected the first President and I stayed on as Secretary until we could afford a full time person.” Sandy Sharp was hired in the spring of 1970 as the first full time Secretary. “When I started, I think we had only 80 members and, even then, some outfits had several memberships to help boost the income. There were only a handful of cattle registered. The Government had, by the time, brought in a bunch of Fullbloods, but in total, there couldn’t 41


have been more than a dozen Fullbloods. Because of a mix up in recording procedures, requiring females to have a calf before they could be recorded, there weren’t many half-bloods recorded yet either. I do remember one thing distinctly, though, there was only $1,180 in the bank account when I started and things were pretty tight for awhile.” But Simmental were established and there was no stopping them. The excitement hit the beef industry like gold fever. The timing was right – the cattle industry was needing a change – and the cattlemen were ready for it. Simmental captured their imagination and put new life into the cattle business. For semen sales, the golden year was 197071. Trevers went on the road selling semen and the total sales were over $1 million that year. Everywhere, cattlemen that had for years scorned crossbreeding, AI and any hint of change of breeds, were jumping in. Much of it was to take advantage of the unbelievable prices being paid for the halfblood females, but many were drawn for the same reason which drew Travers and his original followers to the breed. There was a definite economic advantage to crossbreeding with these cattle and it meant more money in the fall at sale time. The grading system changed, placing more emphasis on a leaner carcass, was one of the finishing touches that put Simmental firmly in the business to stay. Today, Simmental is a “rags to riches” story – the Cinderella of the cattle industry. Starting in 1967 it was laughed at, put down and even during the boom years, told the bubble would burst and it would be left sitting in the cold. The fledgling Association that started on a shoe-string in 1969, has grown in a few short years to become the fastest growing breed Association in Canada. John Kish, Secretary of the CSA, noted that history was made in 1977 when a Fullblood heifer owned by John Lesiuk of Candiac, Saskatchewan, became the 10,000th purebred entry into their herdbook. In 1977 the breed also topped the 100,000 mark in percentage animals recorded. It all began with a dream and a dreamer. While the cattle industry lost Travers Smith with his untimely passing in 1974, he lived to see his dream come true. He lived to see his idea, developed way back in 1965-66, grow, develop, and change the beef industry. Simmental was the first of the new breeds that led “into the Golden days of the beef industry” – reaching a peak in 1974. Those years and the free flowing money, led to long lasting changes that, without that kind of money, would not have been possible. Embryo transplant, improvement in heat detection, and the widespread use of AI, became everyday operations. The widespread awareness of ROP and record keeping were all a part of this period, and became long lasting by-products of those years. It all began with a bull too. Parisien. He’s regarded as the greatest Simmental bull today, not just because he was the first, but for what he did and didn’t do in the cattle industry. He was impressive, himself and that alone won him a lot of friends at hundreds of shows and exhibits. He was structurally correct, and didn’t have any of the faults found in bulls that followed. 42

He gave good, growthy calves, that an ordinary cow could have without problems. While he impressed a lot of people, he didn’t get anyone in trouble. He wasn’t an extreme bull, but a useful bull that crossed well on British breeds. He was tailor-made to be a bull to establish a breed. Reflect, if you will, on the position, of not just the Simmental breed, but every breed which was to follow, had Parisien been a very hard calver, left calves that didn’t cross well on British breed cows, or that didn’t grow, or were structurally unsound. If Parisien hadn’t proven successful, it’s doubtful whether there would’ve been a Simmental breed, and all the subsequent changes it brought. It all began with a dream – a dreamer – and a bull. The dream of Travers Smith has come true. It began with Parisien and will last forever. A fitting tribute to the man was given by his friend, and fellow pioneer breeder, Wayne Malmberg. He said, “the whole North American cattle industry owes Travers Smith a lot of credit because of what he did, and because he did it without a lot of backing or support from anybody.” There will be no monuments needed for Travers Smith or Parisien. There’s a lasting monument spread across North America. It’s a living and moving monument, made of Simmental breeders, and cattle. Most of all, it’s a change of thinking, and an example of what can be done when a man has a dream and works at making it come true.

Appuye sure la poteau de cloture

Par Bruce Holmquist Directeur général - Association Simmental du Canada

Modifications proposées aux statuts et règlements de l’ASC

O

n a déjà franchi la moitié de l’année 2017 et la Convention annuelle de l’Association Simmental du Canada, prévue à Frédéricton au NouveauBrunswick, arrive à grands pas. L’Assemblée générale annuelle de l’ASC se tiendra durant la Convention, afin de discuter des affaires de l’Association et de présenter divers rapports aux membres. Tel que je vous l’indiquais dans ma chronique de l’édition du printemps de la revue Simmental Country, l’un des élémentsles plus importants à discuter cette année lors de notre Assemblée Générale concernera une proposition de modification de nos statuts et règlements, par laquelle on proposera d’éliminer les procurations écrites actuellement employées pour le vote.Si cette modification est acceptée, on remplacera alors les procurations écrites par une procédurede bulletin de vote postal, lequel serait transmis par le bureau de l’ASCà chaque membre de l’ASC. La nouvelle procédure proposée est semblable à celle qui est employée par d’autres associations de races de boucherie, et elle fera ensorte que chaque membre de l’ASC pourra voter directement et en tout confidentialité sur des questions telles que de futures propositions de modification à nos statuts et règlements, ou encore pour élire les membres du Conseil d’administration de l’ASC. De plus, cette procédure assurera que les volontés précises de chaque membre seront respectées, ce qui n’est possiblement pas le cas en ce moment, alors qu’on signe une procuration écrite et qu’on demande à une autre personne de nous représenter lors de l’Assemblée. Plusieurs personnes estiment que la procédureactuelle de délégation de son vote par procuration écrite à un autre membre n’assure pas toute la confidentialité désirée et, de plus, elle est basée sur la confiance que vous placez sur la personne à qui vous donnez votre droit de vote, alors que cette-ci pourrait soit ne pas transmettre votre vote ou encore voterde manière contraire à vos volontés. Par ailleurs, la nouvelle procédure proposée permettrait d’accélérer et de simplifier de manière importante le travail d’inscription à l’Assemblée générale annuelle. 52

Une deuxième proposition de modification est proposée à l’Assemblée de cette année, soit d’adopter un nombre défini d’administrateurs pour chaque province ou région du pays. Avec une telle répartition, qui est aussi employée par d’autres associations, on fera en sorte que la composition du Conseil d’administration reflètera de meilleure manière les niveaux proportionnels d’activités reliées aux enrôlements, aux demandes d’enregistrement et aux transferts de sujets dans les diverses provinces ou régions.Si ces deux modifications proposées sont acceptées, les sièges d’administrateurs à combler dans les provinces ou régions concernées seront comblés à compter de 2018 par un vote postal des membres de l’ASC. Depuis que j’ai annoncé ces changements dans ma dernière chronique “Since introducing these changes in my last Gatepost”, des envois de documents ont été faits à tous les membres actifs de l’ASC partout au Canada. Ces envois contiennent des informations touchant la Convention, incluant notamment un document de dix-huit pages, lequel présente le libellé exact des changements proposés aux statuts et règlements.Nous vous encourageons à lire ce document. N’hésitez pas à communiquer avec moi si vous avez des questions, que vous soyez présent pour voter ou bien que vous votiez par procuration écrite. Le vote par procuration écrite demeurera en vigueur cette année, et cela jusqu’au moment où la modification proposée à nos statuts et règlements sera approuvée par les membres. La période estivale demeure toujours une période occupée. Nous vous souhaitons tout le succès avec vos récoltes de foins et d’ensilages, tout en espérant que vous planifierai participer aux diverses activités prévues partout au Canada dans le cadre des Célébrations du 50E Anniversaire.

Amelioration de la Race Évolution génétique de la race Simmental (1995-2015)

Par le Personnel de l’ASA

L

a mission de l’ASA indique que “Le succès de l’Association Simmental Américaine dépend du succès de ses membres. De même, le succès de ses membres repose sur leurs bovins qui contribueront de manière importante au succès de l’industrie bovine. Bref, la priorité ultime est de maintenir et de favoriser la qualité de nos produits et services, lesquels apporteront de la valeur aux clients des membres de l’ASA.” On peut tous avoir des discussions, qu’on préfèresoit les véhicules Ford ou les Chevrolet, le Pepsi ou le Coke, les produits Apple ou ceux de Microsoft, ou encore la compagnie Verizon ou AT&T. Toutefois, la loyauté envers une marque donnée ne nous permet pas de tout résoudre; si un secteur d’affaires veut connaître du succès à long terme, il doit offrir des produits de bonne valeur à ses clients. Au niveau des affaires reliées à l’élevage de bovins de race pure, il existe plusieurs niveaux de clientèle. Les éleveurs de race pure doivent offrir des taureaux et des femelles dont la génétique contribuera à ajouter de la valeur aux producteurs vache-veau commerciaux, aux engraisseurs, aux abattoirs et, en bout de ligne aux consommateurs. Bien qu’il n’y ait pas toujours une ligne directe de communication entre les différents segments de l’industrie bovine, si le type de génétique ne permet pas d’ajouter de la valeur à un point ou l’autre au long de cette chaîne, vous pouvez être certain que la demande pour cette génétique ira en diminuant. Comment la génétique de race Simmental ajoute-t-elle de la valeur au secteur de la production bovine commerciale ? Lisez cet article afin de constater les progrès réalisés par les éleveurs Simmental pour plusieurs caractères d’importance économique et aussi au niveau des indices économiques au cours des vingt dernières années, soit l’Indice pour Toutes les Fins (en anglais $API) et l’Indice Terminal ($TI). Les tableaux ci-après présentent les valeurs moyennes d’EPD (EPD du printemps 2017), pour les sujets de race pure Simmental nés en 1995, 2005 et en 2015, pour les caractères suivants : facilité de vêlage (FV), facilité maternelle de vêlage (FMV), longévité (LONG), l’aptitude laitière (LAIT), la docilité (DOC), le poids au sevrage (PS), le gain moyen quotidien post-sevrage (GMQ), le poids à un an (PA), le poids de la carcasse (PC), le degré de rendement (DR), le persillage (PERS), la surface de l’oeil-de-longe (SOL) et la force de cisaillement (FC), et les indices moyens $API et $TI. À l’exception de la facilité maternelle de vêlage, qui n’a pas changé significativement, tous les caractères ont évolué dans la bonne direction, favorisant ainsi une croissance continue des indices $API et $TI au cours des vingt dernières années. Alors que certains pourraient penser qu’une diminution de l’aptitude laitière pourrait correspondre à une régression pour ce caractère, en fait une diminution en lait combine avec une augmentation du poids au sevrage se traduit par une efficacité accrue. Les bovins Simmental sèvrent des veaux plus lourds avec des vaches qui semblent plus faciles d’entretien, en raison de la diminution de l’évolution génétique pour l’aptitude laitière. L’indice moyen $API est passé de $ 81,10 à $121,70 par vache exposée. Bien que l’indice $ TI n’ait pas augmenté aussi rapidement que l’indice $API, il est tout de même passé de $55,10 à $67,70 par vache exposée au cours des vingt dernières années. Cela se traduit donc par une hausse respectivement de $ 40,60 et de $11,60 par vache exposée pour les indices $API et $TI.

La Figure 1 illustre l’évolution génétique positive des bovins de race Simmental nés de 1995 à 2015.Veuillez noter que le graphique n’est pas exprimé en unités courantes de valeurs d’EPD. Chaque caractère a plutôt été normalisé (divisé par l’écart-type et avec la valeur d’EPD de 1995 fixée à 0). En normalisant ainsi tous ces EPD et en les ajustant tous par rapport à une valeur de 0 en 1995, on peut donc comparer les changements relatifs entre les dix valeurs d’EPD. Ici encore, vous pouvez constater que les bovins Simmental ont fait des progrès au cours des vingt dernières années pour tous ces caractères, en particulier en ce qui touche le persillage et la facilité de vêlage. Au cours de la même période, on peut constater la pression génétique pour ces caractères d’importance économique, à partir de l’augmentation des deux indices de sélection ($API et $TI, Figure 2). Ces tendances correspondent à d’importantes améliorations au niveau de la facilité de vêlage et du persillage - favorisant ainsi une valeur ajoutée du début jusqu’à la fin du cycle bovin. Les bovins Simmental continuent de démontrer une évolution positive du poids au sevrage et du gain moyen quotidien, lesquels représentent des caractères d’importance économique tant pour les producteurs vache-veau commerciaux que pour les engraisseurs. Grâce à une sélection continue envers des produits à valeur ajoutée pour tous les segments de la production bovine, les bovins de race Simmental détiennent une plus grande part du marché au cours des dernières années. Éleveurs Simmental, continuez votre bon travail - continuez d’ajouter de la valeur pour tous vos clients et la race continuera d’obtenir du succès! Figure 1. Amélioration génétique des EPD moyens des bovins de race pure Simmental nés entre 1995 et 2015. La valeur des caractères a été normalisée afin qu’on puisse comparer les changements relatifs entre les caractères.

2017 CANADIAN SIMMENTAL ASSOCIATION

MEMBER DIRECTORY WELCOME

2017 marks 50 years since Parisien was imported to Canada, and the Simmental breed began to make its mark on the North American beef herd. Since then, the Simmental breed has grown to be a major force in the Canadian beef industry due to the tremendous improvement in the type and quality of the cattle being produced. This is the result of the hard work and dedication of many of the ranches and farms found within this directory. Many of the names you will find printed here have been involved in the Simmental breed for much of the past 50 years, and they are complimented by some newer members that share the passion and belief of what Simmental genetics can do in enhancing profitability.

En 2017, nous soulignons le 50e anniversaire de l‘importation du taureau Parisien au Canada et des débuts de la race Simmental dans le cheptel bovin nord-américain. Au fil des ans, la race Simmental a connu une croissance soutenue, occupant ainsi une place dominante au sein de l’industrie bovine canadienne, grâce notamment à l’amélioration extraordinaire tant du type de bovins produits que de leur qualité.

Welcome to the 2017 Canadian Simmental Association (CSA) Member Directory. You will want to keep it handy as you travel to source Simmental genetics that will improve your herd, or to enjoy some great Simmental hospitality!

Bienvenue dans l’annuaire 2017 de l’Association Simmental du Canada (ASC). Conservez-le à portée de main lors de vos déplacements en vue de sélectionner de nouveaux sujets de race Simmental qui vous permettront d’améliorer votretroupeau, ou encore afin d’apprécier la formidable hospitalité des éleveurs Simmental !

Bruce Holmquist

General Manager Canadian Simmental Association

Ces progrès sont le résultat du travail acharné et du dévouement de plusieurs des fermes et des ranchs annonçant dans cet annuaire. Plusieurs des noms retrouvés dans le présent annuaire ont été impliqués dans la race Simmental pour la majeure partie des cinquante dernières années, et de nouveaux membres se sont joints à eux, en partageant la même passion et en étant tout aussi convaincu que la génétique de race Simmental peut améliorer leur rentabilité.

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF

SIMMENTAL IN CANADA!

Simmental breeders from across Canada are preparing to celebrate our 50th Anniversary events. Be sure to mark your calendar and plan to join the excitement! More details to come in the upcoming months. For any questions please contact your Provincial Simmental Association or Rae-Lee Erickson at the Canadian Simmental Association office rerickson@simmental.com

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since the first Simmental bull, Parisien, was imported to Canada. This was an event that created history and changed the Canadian Beef Industry. Since then the Simmental Breed has been a tremendous success story as it has progressed into becoming one of the most influential beef cattle breeds in North America.

L’histoire concernant Travers Smith et le développement de la race Simmental en Amérique du nord

O

Histoire par: Ted Pritchett, Août 1987

devenu l’épine dans les flancs des races britanniques bien établies.

En se rappelant de cette époque, Fenton Webster de Simmental Breeders Ltd (SBL) disait “Travers était un innovateur qui cherchait à constamment faire les choses différemment et de la meilleure façon – et il était pressé de le faire.Et, de manière encore plus importante, il était capable de transmettre aux autres son enthousiasme et son énergie.

En y réfléchissant aujourd’hui, les éleveurs Simmental peuvent dire qu’il n’était pas le meilleur sujet, mais personne ne pourra toutefoiscontredire qu’il était le premier, et il le restera pour toujours. Le futur de la race reposait sur ses épaules, et la Simmental était alors dans une position unique.

Les gens ont ri quand ils ont vu le taureau.Un cowboy l’a vu alors qu’il était attaché à une clôture chez Prairie Breeders, puis une autre fois au Ranch Same Hector, au sud de Calgary. Il riait tout autant et disait, “Qui pourrait bien vouloir d’un Holstein rouge?” On était en 1967, la deuxième année des importations européennes, et le taureau semblait vraiment ne pas être à la bonne place. Long, maigre, grand et pas doté d’une musculature prononcée, il était tout le contraire des bovins de races de boucherie de l’époque. Même les nouveaux Charolais français importés, bien qu’ils étaient plus grands et plus lourds que les races Britanniques, étaient plus épais et plus musclés. Les Charolais pur-sang domestiques étaient grands, longs et maigres, toutefois les éleveurs les croisaient avec les nouveaux Charolais français importés, afin de produire des sujets plus épais, plus musclés et avec une plus grosse ossature.

Parisien

Parisien, il nous semblait, était l’épine parmi les roses.Au cours des années suivantes, il est devenu cela – il est tout simplement

130

La situation de la race Simmental ne pouvait pas se comparer à celle de la race Charolais, malgré que les deux partageaient des caractéristiques similaires– les Charolais avaient débuté leur présence au Canada depuis onze ans, à partir des sujets domestiques importés des États-Unis et du Mexique, avant que ne débutent les premières importations de l’Europe. Les Charolais consolidaient alors leur niche déjà bien établie dans l’industrie bovine. Bien que cette niche demeurait limitée pour l’époque, la race était de plus en plus acceptée par un nombre croissant de producteurs commerciaux. Il y avait déjà une base établie de sujets de race pure et on faisait des affaires en race pure. Pour la race Simmental, il fallait donc faire de nouvelles percées. Si on voulait que la race prospère et se multiplie, cela devrait se faire en convainquant les producteurs commerciaux qu’il y avait un avantage à employer la race Simmental en croisement.On était alors quelques années avant que l’industrie bovine ne devienne en ébullition, avec des croisements faits avec toutes les nouvelles races, non seulement parce qu’elles étaient nouvelles, mais aussi pour tirer profit des prix formidables alors payés pour des femelles demi-sang. En fait, Parisien fut importé avant la première vente de Charolais “Fullblood” importés, lesquels nous donnaient alors une idée de leur valeur, tandis que les importateurs pouvaient à peine récupérer leurs frais d’importation. En y pensant bien, c’est difficile de croire à une telle situation.

Travers Smith

n rêvait d’un meilleur animal de boucherie – le rêveur – Travers Smith deCardston en Alberta, et le taureau Parisien – le premier sujet Simmental en Amérique du Nord.


Les premiers importateurs de Charolais insistaient pour importer des sujets afin d’améliorer la croissance et les performances deleurs bovins. Très peu, voire aucun n’espérait recevoir les prix inégalés qu’ils allaient éventuellement connaître. Et ainsi, ce fut le tour de Travers Smith et de son idée d’importer des Simmental. Alors qu’on lui demande de relater les divers évènements ayant conduit à cette première importation, Fenton Webster souriait tout en se passant les mains dans son visage bronzé. “Oh mon dieu,” disait-il en regardant au plafond, “ça fait longtemps et beaucoup d’eau est passé sous les ponts depuis cette époque.”

représentaient la race du futur et qu’ils allaient envahir tout le pays. Et bien – je connaissais Travers depuis longtemps et il était toujours en train de chercher quelque chose de nouveau –si ce n’était pas des Hereford, il s’agissait de moutons, et si ce n’était pas des moutons, c’était des chevaux quarter horses. Peu importe, lorsqu’il est venu me voir avec cette idée bizarre, j’ai seulement ri et je lui ai dit, “Ha Travers – vas te faire foutre – c’est ridicule!” L’air nostalgique, il se secoue la tête en repensant à cette journée – “Pouvez-vous imaginer !J’aurais pu être un partenaire pour 500 $ dans le taureau Parisien. Un taureau d’un million de dollars, et j’aurais pu en faire partie pour 500 $ !”

“Travers s’intéressait depuis toujours au contrôle des performances, au croisement et à l’insémination artificielle. Il était convaincu que cela serait la prochaine affaire à être adoptée, à une époque où aucunes de ces idées n’étaient populaires ou encore acceptées par les producteurs de bovins. À leurs yeux, le contrôle des performances demeurait un concept enseigné par les professeurs dans les collèges, tandis qu’il croyait que l’insémination artificielle ne pourrait jamais être utilisée dans les ranchs.”

Travers a finalement réussi à intéresser un autre producteur local, “B.Y.” Williams, et ce sont ces deux individus qui sont responsables de la réalisation de ce projet. Ils ont ainsi formé un syndicat composé de Travers, “B.Y.”Shem Williams et Orson Bingham, (tous les deux dentistes), Guy Bowlby, James Blackmore, Harold Watson (beau-frère de Travers) et son frère, Frank Smith. Ceux-là constituaient alors les membres fondateurs du futur groupe SBL.

“Il a jonglé un certain temps avec la race Charolais, toutefois il désirait vouloir débuter une nouvelle association derace, en l’appuyant sur le contrôle des performances. Il a beaucoup discuté avec Wayne Malmberg, un éleveur Charolais de Spring Coulee en Alberta, lequel partageait plusieurs de ses idées. Quelques années plus tard, Wayne l’a aidé considérablement.”

Aucunes importations n’étaient alors permises en provenance de la Suisse, car toutes les négociations et les exigences sanitaires avaient été faites afin d’exporter uniquement des Charolais de la France. Travers s’est envolé pour l’Europe et, avec l’aide de Wayne Malmberg, il a sélectionné un veau. Ce veau était en faitParisien.

“Je crois qu’il a attrapé la piqure pour la race Simmental après avoir vu un article écrit par Hobart Peters, un généticien chercheur d’Ottawa. Travers a lu cet article et il est devenu très intéressé. Ensuite, il a eu une discussion avec Keith Gregory aux États-Unis. Keith voyageait beaucoup en Europe et il savait ce qu’il se passait là-bas, et il jugeait qu’ils pouvaient apporter beaucoup dans ce pays.Cette fois-ci, Travers fut réellement emballé et il est revenu chez lui en pensant à d’autres personnes qui pourraient l’aider à importer un taureau.”

Wayne Malmberg, un éleveur pionnier de la race Charolais, raconte alors son bout de l’aventure. “On avait à l’époque environ 9000 sujets de race dans le pays et, durant une bonne période, j’ai dû prendre seul toute la responsabilité d’avoir importé le premier Charolais au pays. Puis Travers s’est présenté et il a fait tout le reste. Je connaissais Travers Smith depuis longtemps. En fait, on était des voisins à une époque, à MountainView en Alberta.”

Fenton mentionnait alors “Il m’a demandé une fois si j’étais intéressé, et je n’ai pas dit eu le temps de dire oui ou non, et il n’est jamais revenu me voir.” Plus tard, au sommet des marchés pour cette nouvelle race, un vieux cowboy de Pincher Creek se rappelait, “Travers est arrivé un après-midi, tout excité.Il parlait d’un projet d’importer une nouvelle racedirectement de l’Europe. Il pouvait à peine dire le nom et je ne me suis pas risqué non plus. Il voulait que je lui avance 500 $ et il disait que nous allions être tous riches, car ces bovins

“En 1965, lorsqu’on s’est rendu outre Atlantique afin de sélectionner le premier Charolais, Travers m’a demandé de trouver toutce que je pouvais à propos des Simmental. Je me suis alors rendu à cet évènement agricole à Paris, toutefois ils ne trouvaient rien au sujet des Simmental. On a regardé certains livres et j’ai finalement dit – là – ce sont eux. Eh bien, voyez-vous – ils les appelaient Pie Rouge en France et, en fait, Parisien était un Pie Rouge.” “Peu importe, j’étais de nouveau en France en 1966, et Travers nous a conduit à Dijon pour aller voir des taureaux. Je me rappelle que Ray Woodward était également avec nous.Alors qu’il n’était qu’un veau, Parisien n’était pas aussi carré que les autres

131


taureaux qu’on sélectionnait et il pourrait être classé de nos jours comme étant un bon sujet moderne. En autant que je sois concerné, il était une bonne pièce de viande – plus long que nos Hereford. “Vous savez,” tout en souriant, “après tous les conseils que j’avais donnés à Travers – j’aurais dû suivre certains de ses conseils. J’ai été trop stupide pour investir 500 $ dans leur projet – puis évidemment,” il ajoute, “J’ai fait plusieurs choses stupides à mon époque.”

Fenton, “mais nous avons été soulagés d’obtenir un bon groupe de veaux, ce qui nous donna beaucoup d’assurance.” Quelques-uns des premiers veaux furent vendus pour 500 $ à Allan Dixon, aussitôt sevrés de leurs mères, et ce dernier se moquait de ses camarades en parlant du prix qu’il avait payé à cette époque. Quelques années plus tard, comme se souvient Fenton – les premières génisses 7/8 de sang, issues de ces vaches originales, se sont vendues 25000 $. Ils ont pris des centaines de photos, puis les diapositives de ces premiers veaux demi-sang furent rassemblées dans un diaporama. Ils ont ensuite commencé à faire des présentations partout où ils le pouvaient. Un de leurs premiers arrêts a été fait à Ottawa. “On nous avait donné seulement vingt minutes de rencontre avec Bud Olsen – le Ministre de l’agriculture.Cette rencontre dura plus d’une heure. Le prochain arrêt fut avec Dr. Ken Wells – le Directeur Général des Services Vétérinaires. Encore là, c’était censé être un court arrêt, mais Ken s’est mis à contacter à peu près tout le monde dans l’édifice afin qu’ils viennent entendre ce qu’on avait à dire et à voir nos photos.Un tel enthousiasme nous entourait alors.”

Le taureau est arrivé en 1967, coûtant un total de 8000 $. La même année, Hans Ulrich et Fenton Webster se sont joints au groupe. Puis, ce fut le temps de vendre l’idée d’une nouvelle race, et de chercher des gens pour l’utiliser. Plusieurs personnes n’ont pas vraiment été impressionnées du fait qu’il s’agissait d’une nouvelle race. En fait, cela constituait davantage un préjudice qu’un argument de vente. Les gens avaient besoin d’une excellente raison pour changer, avant même de considérer changer ce qu’ils faisaient alors. Le groupe s’est alors affairer à trouver les preuves qu’ils voulaient. Le taureau était en quarantaine en 1967 sur le Ranch Smith, et il a sailli le plus grand nombre possible de femelles cette année-là. À ce moment-là, la balle était dans le camp de Parisien. C’était maintenant à lui de jouer. Toute la somme des discours, de la promotion ou de l’enthousiasme ne pouvait remplacer les résultats. S’il était un taureau difficile au vêlage, si ses veaux ne se développaient pas bien, ou encore s’ils n’étaient pas assez bons pour les producteurs, eh bien la race serait finie. Incidemment, non seulement le futur de la race Simmental en dépendait, mais tout ce qui allait suivre dépendait de Parisien et de ses premiers veaux. Cela fait maintenant partie de l’histoire et, bien certainement, correspond à l’un de ces “rêves devenus réalité”, auxquels plusieurs producteurs de bœuf rêvent à un moment ou un autre. Quand ses veaux sont arrivés, les gens étaient impressionnés. Les vaches leur ont donné naissance sans aide et ils ont ensuite connu une croissance remarquable. Ils ont ainsi rencontré les attentes des propriétaires et ont simplement ravi tout lemonde. Les voisins des environs avaient surveillé avec grand intérêt les démarches et, en après avoir vu les veaux, ils étaient vendus à l’idée. Travers et sa bande avaient alors quelque chose de concret à promouvoir, confiants qu’ils allaient dans la bonne direction.“Nous n’avions jamais vraiment eu de doutes,” affirme 132

“On a réussi à voir Hobart Peters vers 3:30 ce même après-midi, Hobart était celui qui avait écrit l’article ayant tout d’abord intéressé Travers envers la race Simmental. Eh bien – la fin de la journée était proche et la femme d’Hobart venait le chercher, toutefois il a dit ‘je ne peux pas vous laisser partir mes amis – cela est trop intéressant.’ On a souper avec eux, puis on est revenu le lendemain matin pour le déjeuner.” On a été reçu plus froidement dans le reste du Canada, toutefois Fenton croit que cela était dû de la bonne vieille habitude canadienne d’être prudent.“On a essayé d’aller à plusieurs autres rencontres, y compris auprès des “Western Stockgrowers”, mais la réception fut partout très froide et remplie de scepticisme.” La première percée importante est survenue aux États-Unis. “On s’est rendu à des rencontres des PRI à Sheridan, au Wyoming. Ils nous avaient donné la permission de présenter notre diaporama à la fin de leur réunion. Mais, comme l’un des conférenciers, le Dr. Bob Long était en retard, ils nous alors demandé de présenter tout de suite le diaporama.Par le passé, lorsque nous étions présents, tout le monde partait, mais pas cette fois-ci – tout le monde est resté et a écouté. Dr. Long arriva tandis que nous étions en train de terminer et il insista afin qu’on lui présente le diaporama complet le même soir. Il invita d’autres personnes et je crois que nous sommes restés debout toute la nuit. À cette époque, il semblait évident que le potentiel le plus grand se trouvait aux ÉtatsUnis, du moins c’est là qu’ils ont concentré leurs premiers efforts de promotion. “On a embauché Don Jensen, un technicien et inséminateur artificielle, lequel connaissait la production bovine et le domaine des ventes de semence, et on l’a envoyé sur la route avec Parisien.” À ce moment-là, il n’était pas possible d’exporter vers les États-Unis des animaux importés au Canada, de telle sorte qu’une caution de 50 000 $ fur prise sur Parisien, afin de garantir son retour au Canada. Parisien est ainsi devenu le taureau ayant le plus voyagé et dont on a parlé le plus


au sein de l’industrie bovine.“Il a voyagé d’une manière formidable – il semblait aimer ça.” Le premier arrêt fut à l’Exposition de Denver et, tel que Fenton se remémore, la réaction des spectateurs fut très intéressante. Parisien était alors au sommet de sa forme et il pesait plus de 2700 livres. “Moi et Harold Watson étions dans le kiosque et les gens venaient le voir par centaine. Il était donc l’attraction de toute l’exposition. Je me souviens d’un vieux couple qui s’est approché, alors que Parisien était couché. Ils nous ont alors demandé s’il était possible de le faire lever pour qu’ils le voient. Je crois qu’ils n’avaient jamais imaginé que le taureau serait si impressionnant une fois debout sur ses quatre pattes. Ils n’avaient jamais vu un aussi gros taureau. Le plus amusant a été de voir le vieil homme se prendre la tête tout en hurlant ‘Mon Dieu – mes vaches ont toutes été saillies avec ce taureau.’ Il avait fait inséminer ses vaches avec ce taureau, sans toutefois avoir déjà vu un taureau Simmental et non plus sans réaliser comment celui-ci pouvait êtregros. Parisien continua de voyager, en faisant des arrêts à des centres d’insémination pour qu’on récolte sa semence, et en étant exposé à toutes les expositions possibles. Il a attiré des foules partout où il est allé, tout en captant l’attention des chaines de nouvelles. “Moi et Don étions en onde d’une émission d’une demiheure d’une chaine locale de télévision à Kansas City. Cette émission était diffusée à plus de 35 000 personnes dans les environs, et un vieil homme est apparu dans l’étable avec ses béquilles. Il était hospitalisé et avait vu l’émission, ce qui l’a amené à demander à son médecin de le laisser sortir de l’hôpital afin qu’il puisse aller voir ce taureau. Il nous a dit qu’il devait absolument voir ce taureau!

de priorités à couvrir. De surcroit, il y avait des changements au sein de la compagnie. “B.Y.” Williams, Shem Williams, Orson Bingham et Guy Bowlby avaient alors tous vendus leurs intérêts à d’autres partenaires. James Blackmore avait vendu ses parts aux six enfants de Travers Smith, désignés alors par les 56 et représentés par Robert. Fenton Webster et Hans Ulrich avaient acheté des parts l’année précédente. Plus tard en 1968, Dale Lynch est devenu un membre du groupe. Afin de distribuer des semences partout au pays et d’encourager les gens à utiliser la race Simmental, on a offert des semences dans des troupeaux en échange de la possibilité de sélectionner plus tard des génisses. Plus tard, on a signé des contrats avec plus de troupeaux et des veaux furent rachetés à des prix avantageux. Le troupeau SBL s’est ainsi agrandi avec la sélection de tous ces veaux.Toutefois, plus le temps avançait et plus c’était devenu difficile d’obtenir les génisses de ces troupeaux, car les propriétaires étaient très hésitants à s’en départir. Cela a constitué la première et la meilleure indication que la race était en train de s’établir. “Cela a été tout un travail. Je me rappelle avoir rassembler lors d’un automne plus de 800 veaux au Montana – avec tout le travail de les rassembler, les peser et les tatouer.” Au Canada, la percée s’est amorcéeau moment où des éleveurs réputés ont commencé à démontrer de l’intérêt pour les résultats – en regardant les veaux et en prenant eux-mêmes conscience des accomplissements possibles même chez des vaches commerciales ordinaires. Le troupeau SBL qui avait été assemblé était très impressionnant – alors formé des choix de veaux provenant de troupeaux commerciaux sous contrat aux États-Unis et au Canada. Dans plusieurs des cas, les éleveurs étaient vendus à l’idée alors qu’ils constataient le développement des femelles. “Ed Noad est venu faire un tour un après-midi et a vu le troupeau.Il disait alors – si ce troupeau se trouvait dans mon pâturage – j’aurais sûrement le plus beau troupeau au pays.” Plusieurs choses se sont soudainement mises en place. Depuis plusieurs années, le Gouvernement et les scientifiques en production animale ne cessaient de dire à l’industrie bovine d’employer les croisements. Plusieurs éleveurs– autant commerciaux que pur-sang – savaient depuis longtemps qu’ils devaient faire du changement, mais la seule option était alors le Charolais. Pour plusieurs, ce changement était trop drastique car ils n’étaient pas prêts à perdre les couleurs traditionnelles de leurs bovins.

L’indication la plus significative et démontrant bien comment la race allait prendre de l’expansion arriva lors de l’Exposition de Denver. “Lors de la première année à Denver, il y avait des centaines de personnes qui circulaient dans les allées principales. Les éleveurs Hereford et Angus pouvaient passer en grand groupe. On pouvait facilement les repérer par leurs écussons et leurs casquettes. Ils pouvaient alors rire et se moquer de nous, puis ils revenaient un par un afin d’observer de plus près et poser des questions. Travers était vraiment bon pour les accueillir, car il était aussi converti que n’importe lequel éleveur Hereford pouvait l’être.” De retour au Canada, nous avons vécu un chaos total. Il y avait tant de choses à faire – et tellement à organiser, de même que plusieurs opportunités de promotion, qu’on n’arrivait pas à trouver les heures pour tout faire dans une journée.Il y avait tellement

Avec la race Simmental, on obtenait les mêmes résultats et sans pour autant changer la couleur, ce qui incita alors les éleveurs à regarder d’une autre façon les croisements. “La véritable percée s’est concrétisée lorsque des éleveurs réputés sont entrés en scène, tels que Ed Noad et Gordon Burton. Nous avons tenu une journée de démonstration chez les Burns. On a montré les carcasses et les résultats des travaux à la station de recherche. Les gens étaient alors prêts pour faire un changement, en particulier les producteurs commerciaux.” Puis, de nombreuses lettres commencèrent à arriver au bureau de SBL, jusqu’à plus de cent dix par jour. “On travaillait de 18 à 20 heures par jour afin de répondre à toute cette correspondance. On vivait une période très excitante. L’expression “Faites les toutes saillir Simmental” a été trouvée à nos bureauxdurant cette période. On travaillait ensemble à la préparation d’une annonce et on cherchait un thème, lorsque Bea Tolleylança, “Faites les toutes saillir Simmental”. On a tout de suite aimé l’expression et elle est restée.

133


Pendant tout ce temps-là, on faisait des plans pour former une association, et chaque ressource disponible était employée. “Suite à une exposition aux États-Unis, Ray Woodward, Dale Lunch, LavonSumption, Travers et moi-même sommes demeurés réveillés toute lanuit, travaillant alors ensemble sur des idées d’éventuels statuts et règlements. Travers était bien décidé à faire les choses correctement et il voulait ainsi que tout soit fondé sur des données de performance. Initialement, on avait eu l’idée d’exiger qu’un taureau ait un indice minimum de 105 afin qu’il puisse être enregistré mais, comme plusieurs autres idées, celle-là fut par la suite diluée.” Une constitution commença tranquillement à prendre forme suite à une série de réunions dans le pays, et la première rencontre d’organisation eut lieu le 1er août 1969 à Calgary. “Moi et Lavon avions effectué toute la planification en vue de cette première rencontre à Calgary. On avait un très bon individu pour présider la rencontre– Howard Fredeen – ainsi que Stan Church qui était présent au besoin pour nous informer des lois. Sans vraiment connaître tout le monde, c’était même difficile de bien noter tous les noms pour les diverses nominations. Alors que les gens s’inscrivaient, on a choisi des personnes au hasard et on les a placés sur le comité des nominations. Puis ils ont recueilli les mises en nomination pour les postes d’administrateurs. Travers fut donc élu à titre de premier Président et je suis demeuré Secrétaire jusqu’au moment où il fut possible d’avoir une personne à temps plein. ” Sandy Sharp fut engagé au printemps de 1970 comme première secrétaire à temps plein. “Lorsque j’ai commencé, je crois que nous avions 80 membres et, encore là, quelques entreprises avaient inscrit plusieurs membres afin d’aider à augmenter les revenus. Il n’y avait qu’une poignée de bovins enregistrés. À cette époque, le Gouvernement avait importé un groupe de bovins « Fullblood » mais, au total il ne devait pas y avoir plus d’une douzaine de « Fullblood » au total. En raison d’une confusion au sujet des procédures d’enregistrement, soit que les femelles aient au moins eu un veau avant de pouvoir être enregistrées, il n’y avait pas non plus tellement de sujets demi-sang. Par contre, je me rappelle bien d’une chose, il n’y avait que 1180 $ dans le compte bancaire lorsque j’ai débuté et le budget était très serré durant une bonne période.” Toutefois, les Simmental étaient bien établis et rien ne pouvait les arrêter. Telle qu’une ruée vers l’or, l’industrie bovine était en effervescence. Le moment était approprié – un changement s’imposait dans l’industrie bovine – et les producteurs de bovins étaient prêts à y faire face. La race Simmental a retenu leur imagination et elle est venu donner un nouveau souffle à la production bovine. En ce qui concerne les ventes de semences, les meilleures années furent en 1970-71. Travers est parti sur la route pour vendre des semences et, cette année-là, le total des ventes dépassa 1 millions $. Partout, les éleveurs qui avaient pendant de nombreuses années méprisé les croisements, l’insémination artificielle et tout projet de modification d’une race joignaient la parade. Une des raisons expliquant l’engouement chez plusieursétait à l’effet que les éleveurs voulaient tirer avantage des prix spectaculaires payés pour les femelles demi-sang.Par contre, plusieurs autres étaient attirés par les mêmes raisons ayant conduit Travers et ses alliés originaux à choisir la race. Il y avait un avantage économique certain à faire

134

des croisements avec ces bovins, ce qui signifiait aussi beaucoup plusd’argent lors de la vente à l’automne. Des changements furent apportés au système de classement, avec notamment une emphase accrue vers une carcasse plus maigre, ce qui vint alors apporter la touche finale ayant placé les Simmental en bonne position pour demeurer dans l’industrie bovine. De nos jours, la Simmental représente une histoire “de la misère à la richesse” – la Cendrillon au sein de l’industrie bovine. À partir de 1967, on en a ri, on l’a lâché et, même durant les années les plus fébriles, on a dit que la bulle risquait d’éclater si on laissait les sujets dans le froid.L’Association a vraiment pris son envol en 1969, puis elle a connu une croissance soutenue durant quelques années, de telle sorte qu’elle est devenue l’Association de race ayant connu la plus forte croissance au Canada. John Kish, Secrétaire de l’ASC, faisait remarquer qu’une page d’histoire fut écrite en 1977 lorsqu’une génisse « Fullblood », propriété de John Lesiuk de Candiac en Saskatchewan,soit devenu le 10 000e sujet pur-sang inscrit au livre généalogique. La race a également dépassé le plateau des 100 000 sujets à pourcentage de sang inscrits. Tout ça a commencé par un rêve et un rêveur. Bien que l’industrie bovine ait soudainement perdu Travers Smith en 1974, il a vécu assez longtemps pour voir son rêve devenir réalité. Il a ainsi pu voir grandir son idée, à partir de 1965-1966, puis venir modifier l’industrie bovine. La Simmental fut la première des nouvelles races nous ayant conduit “dans l’âge d’or de l’industrie bovine” – avec un sommet atteint en 1974. Toutes ces années et avec l’argent qui coulait à flot, nous ont mené vers des changements durables qui, sans ce type de fonds, n’auraient pas été possibles. Des techniques telles que la transplantation embryonnaire, l’utilisation intensive de l’insémination artificielle et des améliorations aux principes de détection des chaleurs étaient alors devenues partie intégrante des opérations sur les fermes. De plus, cette période contribua à la promotion et à l’adoption de méthodes de suivi de troupeau, notamment du programme ROP (“Record of Performance”), lesquelles sont demeurées pour longtemps en place après ces années. Tout a également commencé avec un taureau, Parisien. On le considère de nos jours comme l’un des plus grands sujets Simmental, non seulement parce qu’il était le premier, mais également pour ce qu’il a permis à l’industrie bovine d’accomplir et aussi d’éviter de faire. Il était un taureau plutôt impressionnant, ce qui lui a permis de se faire des centaines d’amis lors des diverses expositions et démonstrations. Il avait une bonne conformation fonctionnelle, et


il n’avait pas certains des défauts identifiés plus tard chez certains autres taureaux. Il a engendré de bons veaux, avec une croissance élevée et qu’une vache moyenne pouvait avoir sans problèmes. Même s’il a impressionné beaucoup de monde, il n’a jamais mis personne dans le trouble. Il n’était pas un taureau extrême, mais plutôt un taureau fonctionnel qui a bien croisé avec les races britanniques. C’était un taureau fait sur mesure pour établir une nouvelle race. Si Parisien avait été un taureau difficile au vêlage, s’il n’avait pas engendré de bons veaux croisés issus de vaches de races britanniques, si ceux-là n’avaient pas grossi assez rapidement ou bien qu’ils aient été de mauvaise conformation, pouvez-vous imaginer un instant ce que serait devenue la race Simmental et toutes les autres races qui l’ont suivie. Si Parisien n’avait pas connu tout ce succès, on peut ainsi douter qu’il y ait même eu une race Simmental, avec tous les changements qu’il a ultérieurement provoqués. Tout a commencé avec un rêve – un rêveur – et un taureau.Le rêve de Travers Smith est devenu réalité. Il a commencé avec Parisien et il demeurera pour toujours. Son ami et collège éleveur de l’époque, Wayne Malmberg, lui a rendu un hommage bien mérité. Il mentionnait alors, “l’industrie bovine de toute l’Amérique du nord doit beaucoup de crédit à ce qu’a accompli Travers Smith, car il a tout fait tout ça sans avoir eu le support de personne.”

On n’aura pas besoin de monuments pour honorer Travers Smith ou Parisien. Il existe un monument durable à travers toute l’Amérique du nord. Il s’agit en fait d’un monument vivant et qui bouge, constitué des éleveurs Simmental et de leurs bovins. Plus que tout, il s’agit d’un changement de notre manière de penser, et d’un exemple concret de ce qu’une personne ayant un rêve peut accomplir et qu’elle travaille fort pour y parvenir.

2017 Livestock Markets Association of Canada Convention, Annual Meeting & Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championship Former LMAC Champion Danny Skeels, was presented with a Special “Industry Champion Award” by the LMAC membership. Skeels was the first LMAC Champion 20 years ago in Winnipeg. Since then he has continued to be a great ambassador for LMAC and the livestock marketing industry. He was recognized for his many achievements in the auctioneering field, his countless hours of volunteer work for LMAC, 4-H and the cattle industry. He was also recognized for mentoring many young auctioneers and the promotion of “Price Discovery by Public Auction”. Skeels is also a former World Champion and International Auctioneering Champion. He was presented a Limited Edition Ken Frederickson Bronze, which is reserved for LMAC Auctioneering Champions.

The Canadian Simmental, Charolais, Hereford, Limousin and Angus Associations have been sponsors of LMAC for 20 consecutive years. Each year they present the host with a token of recognition. This year’s host was Perlich Bros. Auction Mart Ltd. in Lethbridge.

OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHIES

HILLER, Elaine Dawn (nee Hansen) April 3, 1968 – April 27, 2017 Elaine Hiller of Calmar passed away at the Devon Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving husband Doug and son Wyatt of Calmar; her mother Audrey Hansen of Calmar; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Elaine was predeceased by her father Gordon Hansen in January 1986.

ALAN PEPPER Alan Stewart Pepper was the 3rd of 5 children born to Fred and Margaret Pepper on 21st April 1943, into a strong loving family at”Peppers Corner”, Ballymoney, Banbridge. The family later moved to Quilly House Dromore when he was twelve. Alan grew up to love nature and the land, he attended Mullaghfurnaghan school and then Banbridge Academy where his initials could be seen on many a desk. However, this ended when he took full advantage of Fred and Margaret’s being on holiday,taking the executive decision to leave school at the tender age of 16. He went on to study at Greenmount Agricultural College. At his graduation his Father couldn’t understand why he was so popular as all the students began crowing as he went up for his prize. His Mother however knew that the applause was in celebration of his gift to the Matron four months earlier of a prize Rooster into her bathroom. When he finished Greenmount, he returned home to work on the family farm at Quilly House, Dromore. On 10th May 1965, Alan bought his first lorry, following in the footsteps of his Father. His elder brother Derek later joined him in business and they worked together to establish “Pepper Dromore Ltd” 65 was indeed a momentous year for him for it was then that he met Blanche Law and they went onto marry in 1968, building their first home together Seaton Lodge, a bungalow on Quilly road, Dromore and started their first business together of a broiler chicken house. Soon after Deborah and I were born. In 1976 Blanche and Alan scared their bank manager and themselves by buying Marybrook Farm in Kinallen, where they brought the derelict former manse back to life and expanded their poultry business. 1979 was the year when Rory or as Deborah would say “ the special one” was born, and the family, which was central to his life, was complete. Moving to Marybrook allowed Alan to pursue the great interest he had in farming Simmental cattle, which had him globetrotting round the world for many years with the World Simmental Federation. He formed great friendships on these travels and really enjoyed learning about the different cultures and farming practices. When Blanche’s hobby of water colour painting took her on her travels, he thought it would be good to keep her company. Not only was this an opportunity for him to meet many more interesting people but also to be on hand to offer positive advice, such as “very good Blanche, but that gate needs straightening or that window is crooked.”It was this attitude and genuine interest in people, their lives and stories that led to the family nickname “ the Oracle” In 1985 the four Pepper brothers along with their sister Audrey, took a leap of faith and ventured into the world of refrigeration as they started “Mallusk Cold Storage Ltd”, led by Wallace and Derek. The business through hard work and family unity continued to prosper and expand. Pepper Dromore continued to grow as a family business forging strong links with Thompsons mill and with Mark and I joining, starting out as our fathers did, driving a lorry, and later in 2005 when we bought Pettrans Ltd, a fuel haulage business. In all of Alans business dealings his main interest was the people - be it the farmer he was delivering feed to, the MD of a large company or the man who brushed the floor. He loved people and people loved him. Alan would be so delighted to see you all here today for he was never happier than when he was with friends. He’d be pleased to let you know how Liverpool were doing and pass on his advice on the tactics of the Ulster, Ireland and Dromore rugby teams. Maybe even give you a few snippets of information on world affairs and how things should be. In 1997 the world of business became significantly less interesting to him following the birth of Jack, the first of his 7 grandchildren. The Oracle was now on hand to offer advice & guidance to his daughter and daughters-in-law on matters of pregnancy, birth and infant feeding. Jack, Patrick, Fred, Lucy,Ruby, George and Franklin were center to his world. He loved having them in his home and was happiest when we were all together. The last couple of years saw him able to realize his dream of converting the courtyard barns at Marybrook farms, which created a sanctuary for him with all his family close by and from where he loved to give his favorite parenting advise “I wrote the book!”

We are pleased to announce that the final T Bar Invitational golf tournament was an overwhelming success, raising $45,000.00 for youth in the beef industry. Eight national junior breed associations, representing nearly 2,200 members, will reap rewards because of the generosity of sponsors. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Canadian Western Agribition, Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup, Summer Synergy, Stockade Roundup and the Young Ranchman’s All Breeds Livestock Show which all host junior interbreed events. A successful social sponsored by Alta Genetics was held on the night of June 19th at the office of T Bar C Cattle Co. Ltd. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The next morning, golfers of all ages and skill levels took to the course for golf, fellowship, and good cheer. The day concluded with an awards banquet and presentation of the T Bar Invitational champions trophy. “We are extremely happy with this year’s event which surpassed our expectations. With the commitment of the tournament participants and sponsors we have raised $450,000.00, which has positively impacted a great amount of youth.” said Bryan Kostiuk, co-chairman of the tournament. “The tournament encompasses people from all segments of the industry as well as those who supported a great cause.”

Special thank you to everyone who helped make the past decade a huge success. 140
