In This Federal Funding Supports Canadian Angus Association Research for Economically Relevant Traits to Improve Breeder Efficiency and Productivity

26

July 22, 2019: for immediate release

Rocky View County, AB — The Canadian Angus Association (CAA) is very grateful for the investment of $238,920 from the Canadian Agriculture Partnership (the Partnership) Agri-Assurance program to help us use genomic tools to select for foot and leg health and improve animal welfare. The funding was announced as part of an overall investment of $8.3 million for six projects that will help support Canada’s world-class beef industry. The Canadian Angus Association research project aims to develop genetic selection tools for feet and legs in beef cattle. Lameness in cattle has been attributed as the primary cause of reduced animal welfare, production loss (breeding activity, milk production and growth), economic loss (early culling) and reduced consumer confidence. We are working with Canadian beef producers to phenotype 5,000 Canadian Angus animals for feet and leg structure. The data will be used to:

• Generate genomically enhanced Expected Progeny Differences (GE-EPDs) for feet and leg structure included in the CAA’s suite of available EPDs • Create economic estimations of trait impact for inclusion of traits in index EPDs • Increase animal health, welfare, longevity and profitability through genetic selection for improved feet and leg structure While the Canadian dairy industry has been measuring and selecting for improved feet and leg structure for several years, extensive grazing makes such measurement and selection more challenging for beef cattle. These investments will help Canadian beef producers become more competitive and provide them with the tools they need to remain sustainable and innovative. “The support from the Partnership will provide the CAA with the ability to conduct new research on a number of economically important traits relating to improving the efficiencies and productivity of the Canadian beef breeder,” says CAA CEO Myles Immerkar. “Currently the tools to measure, select and improve these economically critical traits are not available to the beef breeder and the development of these tools and the improvement in these traits will continue to impact the functionality of the Canadian cow herd.”

Why Pixels Matter 58

The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a five-year, $3-billion investment by federal, provincial and territorial governments to strengthen the agriculture and agri-food sector. The Canadian Angus Association is Canada’s largest purebred beef breed organization, registering about half of Canada’s purebred beef cattle. The Association represents more than 2,000 members across Canada for the purposes of registering and recording the pedigrees of purebred Angus cattle in the closed Herd Book and promoting the breed across Canada. The member-approved mandate is to maintain breed registry, breed purity and provide services that enhance the growth and position of the Angus breed.

he Hollinger family began their farming roots at Neudorf, Saskatchewan, when the town consisted of half a dozen log homes, a couple livery barns and a liquor store. Chad Hollinger is the fifth generation on the land where he and his family own and operate Hollinger Land and Cattle.

Cattle have been an integral part of the Hollinger operation right from the start with Chad purchasing his first purebred Angus at age 12. They run a cow calf operation consisting of 225 cows, both purebred Angus and Angus based commercial cows on a land base of around 4500 acres; 4000 of which is grain farmed producing crops such as Oats, Canola, Wheat and Barley.

Cattle have always been a part of Chad’s life on the farm, right from day one. He was an active member of his local 4-H club, as a child and his love of all things cattle related blossomed from there. Upon finishing high school, he spent two years at Lakeland College in Vermilion earning his diploma in Livestock Production.

“ THAT’S WHEN THE PUREBRED HERD REALLY STARTED HERE AT HOLLINGER LAND AND CATTLE. ”

While attending college, he had the opportunity to work for Justamere Farms in Lloydminster; eventually becoming their herdsman when school ended. During that time they showed extensively across North America, exposing him to lots of people while learning a lot about the business and industry in general. Plus he honed his skills in learning more about showing, fitting and clipping there than he knew before, having only shown in 4-H and with his uncle before that.

The opportunity in 2010 to purchase his uncle’s land base and lease a package of 40 purebreds brought him back home. A few years later he purchased the entire herd. At the time Chad came home, his father had around 90 commercial cows. Chad states, “That’s when the purebred herd really started here at Hollinger Land and Cattle.” The commercial herd has always been Angus based for as long as Chad remembers. Over the years they’ve used some black Simmental bulls but for the last decade, they have been breeding Black/Black Baldie, using some Hereford bulls on

Rocky View County, AB — Canadian Junior Angus presented three juniors with scholarships totaling $4,500 at the 20th Annual Showdown in Barriere, BC. Kodie Doetzel of Lipton, SK received the first-place scholarship of $2,000; Naomi Best of Harding, MB received the second-place scholarship of $1,500; and Charlene Elliot of Kenilworth, ON received the third-place scholarship of $1,000. The scholarships were presented at Showdown, the annual national Canadian Junior Angus show. Doetzel won the Spirit of Youth Award at Showdown. He will soon begin his second year of a general agriculture course at Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kansas where he is a member of the HCC Livestock Judging Team. He intends to pursue a career Left to right: Charlene Elliot, Naomi Best and Kodie Doetzel as a commercial order buyer and continue working on his family farm, Nu-Horizon Angus, when he completes his education. Doetzel served for several years on the Saskatchewan Junior Angus Board and has sat on the Saskatchewan Angus Association Board of Directors for two years. Best is entering her third year of the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture program at the University of Saskatchewan. She intends to return to rural Manitoba when she completes her degree and pursue a career in agriculture finance. Over the last three years she has worked to reboot the Manitoba Junior Angus program. Best is also a member of the University of Saskatchewan Livestock Judging Team and Beef Team as well as a volunteer coach with Skate Saskatoon CanSkate Program. Elliot received the Dick Turner Memorial Scholarship Award at the Canadian Angus Association Annual National Convention last month. She attends the University of Guelph and is in the third year of a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. Her career goal is to be a large animal feed specialist with a focus on beef and dairy while continuing to work on her family farm. She is also President of the Ontario Junior Angus Association and serves on the Ontario Angus Association Board of Directors. Canadian Junior Angus (CJA) is the national association for Angus youth up to age 21. CJA’s goal is to help prepare future cattlemen for the beef industry by educating and informing juniors about the Angus industry. Showdown began in 2000 as way for juniors from across the nation to gather in one location to exhibit their Angus cattle in conformation divisions. It rotates to provinces throughout the country every July. This year 111 participants and 112 head of cattle took part in Showdown in Barriere, BC. There have been many different activities and contests added over the years with 16 competitions now available including print marketing, sales talk, judging, team judging, team grooming, photography, literature, art, scrapbooking, graphic design, farm sign, public speaking, Angus cookoff, best herdsman, showmanship and conformation as the current competitions.

The plant-based saga becomes more ridiculous every week! I wonder what Colonel Harland David Saunders would think about his worldwide famous chicken nuggets being processed out of peas. In this media frenzy promoting a vegan lifestyle, blaming the meat industry on environmental change, we must maintain our solid ground; producing the necessary protein and vitamins to maintain essential health for our masses. This requires consumer education but unfortunately, most of the media output is done by professors and experts who have never stepped into grass and water (manure). Their intent is purely financial, without any thought of the consequences for the generations to follow. Best example of this is that of the paper grocery bag which was banished because experts deemed plastic the way of the future… where are we now? When you look at the ingredients of a Beyond burger, we can recognize the basics – pea protein isolate, expeller-pressed canola oil, refined coconut oil and water. This burger also contains 2% or less of several ingredients which are unfamiliar to me… Methylcellulose (a bulk-forming laxative), Maltodextrin (a thickener and filler which comes from highly processed natural foods… the dangers are that it can spike blood sugar, suppress the growth of probiotics, may cause an allergic reaction and has no nutritious value), Succinic Acid (used as an acidity regulator in the food and beverage industry), Acetic Acid (an antibiotic), Gum Arabic (adds properties of glue and binding) and several coloration and flavor additives.We can all agree that it is neither appetizing nor the ideal menu for a growing family.

The general public knows less and less every day about livestock, their growers and the value of farmers and ranchers throughout the world. It is taken for granted that the shelves will be well stocked and available to Mrs. Consumer. But Mrs. Consumer does not realize that the cow puts more, much, much more, into her shopping cart than milk and meat. Some other products produced are cosmetics, perfumes, paints, mouthwash, detergents, toothpaste, shaving cream, deodorants, insecticides, pet food and many more. Pharmaceutical products such as insulin (which has a growing shortage) for diabetes, Heparin an anti-coagulant, Glucagon for hypoglycemia, Prolactin for lactation and many others.Tires for your car contain stearic acid which makes rubber hold its shape under continuous friction; antifreeze contains glycerol derived from fatty acids to keep engines running cool. Asphalt has a binding agent from fat, numerous lubricants and fluids, shoes, luggage and the lists go on and on. The problem we have today is the education system…. unless the teacher was born and raised in an agricultural setting…brown milk comes from brown cows! In the fast living lane which we enjoy, we must reflect on the system that made and developed a great country and way of life. In Ottawa, our Agriculture office can be found just ahead of maintenance …a century ago it was right behind defense… the only way we can start to change this matter is with your ballot

T

he Hollinger family began their farming roots at Neudorf, Saskatchewan, when the town consisted of half a dozen log homes, a couple livery barns and a liquor store. Chad Hollinger is the fifth generation on the land where he and his family own and operate Hollinger Land and Cattle. Cattle have been an integral part of the Hollinger operation right from the start, with Chad purchasing his first purebred Angus at age 12. They run a cow calf operation consisting of 225 cows, both purebred Angus and Angus based commercial cows on a land base of around 4500 acres; 4000 of which is grain farmed, producing crops such as Oats, Canola, Wheat and Barley. Cattle have always been a part of Chad’s life on the farm, right from day one. He was an active member of his local 4-H club, as a child and his love of all things cattle related blossomed from there. Upon finishing high school, he spent two years at Lakeland College in Vermilion earning his diploma in Livestock Production.

“ That’s when the purebred herd really started here at Hollinger Land and Cattle. ”

While attending college, he had the opportunity to work for Justamere Farms in Lloydminster; eventually becoming their herdsman when school ended. During that time, they showed extensively across North America, exposing him to lots of people while learning a lot about the business and industry in general. Plus he honed his skills in learning more about showing, fitting and clipping there than he knew before, having only shown in 4-H and with his uncle before that.

The opportunity in 2010 to purchase his uncle’s land base and lease a package of 40 purebreds brought him back home. A few years later he purchased the entire herd. At the time Chad came home, his father had around 90 commercial cows. Chad states, “That’s when the purebred herd really started here at Hollinger Land and Cattle.” The commercial herd has always been Angus based for as long as Chad remembers. Over the years they’ve used some black Simmental bulls but for the last decade, they have been breeding Black/Black Baldie, using some Hereford bulls on

AI sire selection for outcross genetics to supply something different to the is very similar but we are, at times, using that sire based on commercial customers and to sell females to other operations. reputation; whereas, we don’t always get to analyze that They like them stout, big boned, with lots of rib. “I like cattle bull in person. It is through word of mouth of other people’s that have some presence to them; cattle that command your success using those attention when you walk in the pen. At times when selecting genetics. Finding an I’ll give up some size to add some “look” and character. I guess outcross that really a balance is key, having the right balance of calving ease and works for a specific performance, while also focusing on structure and soundness, program is key and as well as foot and udder quality. We are always looking to we are very fortunate improve and add where we can, by selectively breeding each in the Angus breed to female whether it be through AI or natural service. A lot of times have such a wide variety of genetics at our disposal, and so many progressive cattlemen and women who are extremely good at what they do.” When asked, “What do you see as the biggest challenges for purebred breeders, commerical breeders and industry wide?” Chad stated, “The biggest challenge for the purebred breeder is probably maintaining their customer base and understanding what the customer is after in terms of the type and kind of cattle they want to breed. As breeders, we have to be aware of where the industry is headed and what the consumer is after. I feel it is important to offer sound functional cattle that will work in all sorts of environments and conditions. Breeding balance in terms of traits such as calving ease and performance is very important. I had a commercial customer through my herd this spring who primarily uses Angus on his heifers and Simmental on his cows. He was astounded with the growth of our Angus calves, most being born in the 75-90 pound range. It was nice for him to see that Angus isn’t just a calving ease breed; that we do offer a nice balance of calving ease and growth. I think for the commercial cattlemen, one of the biggest challenges they face, as well as all cattlemen in general, is the ongoing debate of antibiotic and vaccine use. Personally, I believe that there is need for the use of these tools in our industry. It is important when using these products that you understand the product you are using, withdrawal periods, Today’s Angus Advantage  29

safety, storage and proper usage and administration to the animal. These things are important for the safety of you, the cattle and also the customer and or consumer. Today’s consumer is increasingly wanting to know that their food was raised ethically, safely and ultimately that it is safe for them to eat. It’s not that we haven’t been doing all of these things up till now, it is just that there is misleading information that is publicly promoted, advertising one system over the other. In turn, the consumer asks questions and wants to be more informed about the product that they are feeding themselves and their families. I think that ties into the question of the challenges faced by the industry. It is in the news and advertising everywhere you look, “beyond beef” or plant based protein. I believe it is a concern that we as an industry need to be aware of. I think there are some excellent steps being taken by some food chains such as McDonald’s, advertising that their beef was raised sustainability, meaning that they source beef from Canadian ranchers who have the ability to produce and maintain a consistent safe product that must meet a certain rate or level.” In terms of advertising and marketing, Chad uses A n g u s Advantage, provincial magazines and some local advertising. He is a big believer on mailing a lot of sale catalogues, even with

more cost to it, because they are getting it right into their hands. Also he explains, “If we are travelling around going to other sales or this and that, just putting a poster up here and there is cheap advertising. Put them where the farmers and producers hang out or frequent. We have had a lot of guys and asked them, “How did you get a hold of us? Or what made you come to the sale?” They say, “Oh, we saw your poster,” and it was just a poster at a gas station or a local farm supply shop or something. Lots of that stuff, that’s huge. The internet is huge. There’s more and more people online. Prior to the last issue of the Angus Advantage being out in people’s hands, we made the decision to host our first on farm female production sale this December. It was my thought that it would be the first people would see or know of it, other than by word of mouth.

But I received multiple phone calls and messages about the sale just shortly after the date was put onto the BuyAgro website. It’s just an example of how important the internet and being connected on social media are to advertising in today’s world.” “Making the phone call, keeping connected with your customers, driving in guy’s yards, keeping your existing customers happy, that’s huge. Get in their yards, it’s one thing they love to come to your place and look at your cattle but it’s important to go and see what your cattle are doing for them. I feel its important to tour their herds and better yet, visit with them about what they might be looking for or where they’d like to change something, so that in the future we can better assist or help them match a certain bull or female to their program.” Another large part of Hollinger’s marketing is the show ring. Chad has successfully shown across North America and judged multiple shows, including being named the judge for the upcoming Angus show at the Royal.

“I think there is value in the show ring; maybe not even the show ring, just being present at the show. You get a lot of people through, that see your cattle that typically wouldn’t. It’s just a small selection of cattle and you typically take the best and so it’s important to get out so people can see that. It’s a great place to network and visit with people, regardless of how the show results go. I think it’s an important tool and it always will be. There are those who don’t see much value in it or they think that the cattle that are at the shows aren’t real world cattle or aren’t going to work in the real world. But we show the cattle that we breed; we’re not breeding show cattle. Over the years... we’ve been to Agribition every year, I think, since I was a kid. Our biggest success would be the Premier Breeder and Exhibitor at Agribition at the National Angus Show in 2014. I was totally surprised; it never even crossed my mind that that was going to happen or even possible, but it happened. Another neat one we won was having a Division Champion at the Western National Angus Futurity in Reno, Nevada. Another highlight was our trip to the Toronto Royal in 2017, where we had won Reserve Champion Angus Bull.” Spending time with Chad, listening to the passion he has for the Angus breed, his herd and his customers, it is easy to see why in fall 2016 the Saskatchewan Angus Association recognized him as the Purebred Breeder of the Year and

the Canadian Angus Foundation just named him the 2019 Outstanding Young Angus Breeder. The award recognizes young Angus breeders who have demonstrated the desire to stay involved in the Angus breed, based on their contributions thus far. His passion and willingness to lend a hand where needed has brought him to a position on the Saskatchewan Angus Association board, where he is proud of the fact that they are the busiest and most active provincial association. This December, Hollinger Land & Cattle will host their first Female Production Sale, “The Female Focus” at the farm with their sale partner, J Square S Angus, as a compliment to their successful Annual Spring Bull and Female Sale. When asked, “It’s been something I’ve always wanted to do and been a thought of mine for quite some time. We are to the point where our number will allow us to offer a larger group of females and I believe that people get a better feel for your program in a production sale setting versus a consignment sale. Our new facility is another reason it makes hosting the sale possible.” While Chad won the Outstanding Young Breeder Award, you could easily take the word young out and read it that way or replace the word breeder with man, either way, the future of the breed and the industry is better and brighter with men like Chad in it.

Concussion Protocol The phone call happened late one Tuesday evening and caught Shorty by surprise and napping. “Shorty… it’s Mutt. You off on the weekend?” “Yeah… why?” “The high school rodeo is on and I am supposed to get somebody to run a couple of gates.” Shorty’s mind was starting to spool up. How could he get out of this one? Maybe Cathy could bail him out… “Cathy is gonna help at the concession, so you will probably be there anyway.” “I guess I could swing a gate or two.” Shorty’s mind was working overtime now… had Cathy said anything about this? He was sure she had, he just hadn’t paid any attention. So that is how Shorty ended up working the out gate on the Friday evening performance. It was pretty mundane stuff, the high school cowboys mostly weren’t the best of cowboys and the stock was nasty. The rough stock had won every round so far and there was only bull riding left. Mutt had joined Shorty at the out gate to watch his daughter barrel race. Mutt, whose given name was Larry, worked a ranch not far from Shorty. Shorty had asked about the name Mutt and Mutt explained that his older brother was Jeff and when he came along his dad called him Mutt as a joke and it stuck. Mutt was a good dad and he loved his two bull riding sons, Ryder and Ripley. He was awful proud of those boys and Mutt spent all summer hauling them to rodeo,

after rodeo, after rodeo. His wife, Lauren, hauled their only daughter all summer chasing cans and occasionally everyone showed up in the same place. This was one of those occasions. Ripley was up first and he had drawn a bull that he had tried to ride a few times, but failed. The bull, Two Bar Oscar, was a big Black Angus cross with a bad attitude. Rip nodded and Oscar shot out of the chute like he was on a mission. Rip had a good seat and looked like he was good to go, at least for the first 4 or 5 seconds. At the 5 second mark, Oscar shifted hard to the right and Rip carried on straight. Ripley hit the ground hard, head first. Shorty noticed right away the lack of movement from Ripley. The bull on the other hand had spun around and was looking directly at the discarded bull rider. The bull fighters were trying their level best to distract Two Bar Oscar and Shorty was sprinting towards the fallen cowboy. He took up a position between the bull and rider and hoped the bull fighters, who had been joined by the pick up guys, could keep the bull away. “Rip! Are you with me? Rip!” Shorty glanced over his shoulder and saw Mutt had arrived. Ripley was starting to stir. The arena had been cleared and Mutt was joined by the rodeo director, Art. Art had been there before. “Ripley just stay still, we have to get the paramedics to have a look at you.” “ Geez Art… he’ll be okay. He’s breathin’ and he is tougher than he looks.” Mutt was pleading with Art, but Art would have nothing to do with it.

“Look Mutt, I have to make sure that these kids don’t get hurt. My arena, my rules.” Mutt stood up and turned away. “Shit Shorty, the boys are up at Lone Pine in the slack tonight, I can’t be late for that.” Both Mutt and Shorty watched as two paramedics trotted across the arena. One of them carried a plastic kit, the other a backboard. The first paramedic was kneeling beside Ripley. “Son what’s your name?” There was no response from Rip and that seemed to amp up the concern. “Son can you hear me? What is your name?” “Yeah I hear you.” Rip’s response was weak, but it was there. “I ain’t your son.” Mutt had seen enough. “His name is Ripley and he just ain’t that smart so keep them questions simple.” The paramedic looked up at Mutt. “Who are you?” “He is my son… I am his dad.” “Oh.” The paramedic was clearly not impressed. “ We are going to stabilize his neck and get him to a hospital so we can check for damage.”

“He don’t need to go to no hospital, he has been in wrecks before!” Mutt was voted down. The paramedics loaded up Ripley and turned to Mutt. “Come on… we will need you at the hospital.” Mutt climbed into the ambulance. Ripley had regained his facilities by now and would have been quite happy to nod off on the ride in, but the second paramedic would have none of it. “Ripley you have to stay awake, we are afraid that you maybe concussed.” “Naw he just likes to sleep.” Mutt stared at his son. “What do I need to be here for?” “Well sir… we may need parental permission for treatment and we have to establish baseline questions as part of concussion protocol.” Ripley glanced over at his dad. Mutt’s eyes were glazed over and he appeared to be confused. If baseline isn’t a medical term for simple, he was screwed. Mutt’s wife arrived at the hospital to find her husband sitting in the waiting room. He was calmer than she would have imagined.

“Where is Ripley, Mutt?” Mutt nodded towards a long hallway. “Somewhere down there…” “Is he okay?” “Yeah I guess. The nurse said she would get me when the doctor showed up. I have to answer some questions…” “Larry… Larry!” Mutt was being summoned by a rather large and somewhat unsympathetic nurse. When Mutt looked up, she motioned to him. “Follow me.” It was an order rather than a request. The two entered a room near the end of the hall and there was Ripley, still in his dirty clothes, sitting up in a hospital bed. Beside him was a kid in a white smock that looked to Mutt like he would be more suited to serve ice cream at the Dairy Queen then analyze concussions. “This is his father.” The nurse seemed reluctant to admit that, but she did and left the room. “Hello. I am Dr. Abou. I just need to fully understand the circumstances of the injury.” Dr. Abou had an unusual accent and Mutt had to pay close attention to what was being said. “ I am told by…” Dr. Abou looked at the clipboard in his hand, “…Ripley…I must say that is a most unusual name, that he was playing lawn darts.” “No Doc….I said I was lawn darted…” Ripley appeared to Mutt to be getting a little pissed off. Dr. Abou was clearly confused. “What is lawn darted? I have never heard of this before.” Ripley continued. “I drew Two Bar Oscar… again. He is a mean son of a bitch and he is supposed to go left out of the chute. Today he just rockets straight out and then goes hard right. I hit the ground like a friggin’ lawn dart.” “I am not getting this.” Dr. Abou looked to Mutt for help. “That’s pretty much it Doc.” Mutt made an arcing motion with his hand that ended with Mutt slapping his right hand into the palm of his left. “Splat, head first, just

like a lawn dart. Look, is this gonna take long? We gotta get back.” “Just a few more questions Ripley.” Dr. Abou was shining a small flashlight into Ripley’s eyes. “Do you know what day it is?” “Nope. I know I was up in the High School perf this afternoon, I am in the slack at Lone Pine tonight, then two more perfs at the High School on Saturday and Sunday. Oh! It must be Friday.” Dr. Abou was staring at the clipboard. He had just heard Ripley speak and the only word he understood was ‘Friday’. The rest appeared to be some gibberish that only the locals could understand. His hospital’s concussion protocol was clearly not going to be followed, his concern for the young man’s health was of no concern to the father and he was at the end of his shift. “I would recommend that there be no more ‘lawn darting’ for this young man. I do not know what a Two Bar Oscar is or why his direction of travel would be a concern of this young man, but I strongly urge you sir, as his father, to exercise some caution and limit the activities of your son to something less vigorous for the next week or so. Do you understand?” “If I say yes can we go?” Mutt was looking at his watch and making some mental calculations as far as travel times. “Yes, you can go if you understand the risks involved in this sort of activity…” Dr. Abou stopped speaking. Ripley had leapt off the bed at ‘yes’ and had ran past his father and down the hall. Mutt was backing out of the room. “Thanks Doc.” Ripley was bucked off at Lone Pine, but he landed on his butt and he won the High School Rodeo with rides on Saturday and Sunday. Ryder won Lone Pine and ended up in second at the High School Rodeo, just behind his brother. Dr. Abou asked for and was granted a transfer.

Grant Rolston was born and raised in ranching country near Penticton, British Columbia. After graduating school, he worked on a purebred Hereford ranch, then assumed a position at Western Breeders Artificial Insemination Unit. In 1980, he left the livestock scene and joined the Edmonton Police Department, where he received his formal training in photography, working for the IDENT unit (crime scene investigation). After a decade, he returned to the industry, purchasing a herd of purebred Angus cattle but both Grant and his wife, Lauralee, worked off the ranch to make a living. He chose livestock photography and is now Canada’s premier livestock photographer of beef cattle. Grant and Lauralee travel throughout nine provinces in Canada for on farm photography, in addition to all major livestock shows, including the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, the Canadian Western Agribition and all major National Junior shows in the summer months. Grant and Lauralee Rolston reside in Vulcan, Alberta. With four decades of experience, Grant shares things that are “Not Taken for Granted.” Today’s Angus Advantag e   34

The Beyond Meat Phenomenon

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

For beef producers it is frustrating to see how many retailers and restaurant chains are offering Beyond Meat products to consumers. Many say they would never eat the product and consider it high treason for anyone associated with our industry to admit to such a crime. On the other hand, it is fascinating to watch. Certainly the sales reports show there is demand for the product and it seems that every week I hear of another big-name restaurant chain that is offering a meat-alternative product. I have read every article that has come across my desk about Beyond Meat and meat alternatives and I have even tried a Beyond Meat burger (Beyond Burger) and have so far survived the experience. I must admit that I had heard so much hype about it that I was eager to give it a try, but at the same time I felt a bit rebellious and guilty. To balance the experience and ease my conscience, I ordered a conventional burger and took one or two bites of each product in sequence. From my point of view, if you like beef burgers made with the real thing the Beyond Meat burger was disappointing. The dominant taste was the lettuce and other ingredients used to garnish the burger, whereas the beef burger was juicier and certainly a much tastier experience. I had to wonder if I preferred the beef burger because that is what I had been raised with and had become accustomed to in my diet. I concluded that for some the Beyond Meat product would be something they like and it likely would attract those customers who would otherwise not eat meat.

Nobody likes competition! However, what can we learn from the competition, and from the launch and early success of Beyond Meat? To gain market share new products must demonstrate they are better than what already exists – price, taste, country of origin, carbon footprint, reputation of the processor/marketer to name a few have all been used in the marketing of meat. “Better for your health” seems to be the platform chosen by Beyond Meats marketing executives. Ethan Brown, founder and CEO of Beyond Meat said that comparing the nutrient composition of a Beyond Burger was too simplistic because it doesn’t factor in the reported health risks that are associated with eating red and processed meat namely, cancer and heart disease. Another claim is that the Beyond Meat burger contains no cholesterol or animal-derived saturated fat and is lower in saturated fat than burgers made from fattier cuts of beef. For the most part, the research supporting the link between the consumption of red meat and disease in humans is weak, however, Beyond Meat’s initial success in the market place seems to be fueled by more than just a healthier-thanthe-other-stuff platform. Certainly one accelerant has been a timely and widely published misinterpretation of Health Canada’s recommendations in the recently updated Canada Food Guide. The recommendation was to choose more plant-based protein alternatives yet this was spun into eating less meat which was not the original intention. The truth is that Canada’s Food Guide does not say that plant proteins should be consumed at the expense

Today’s Angus Advantag e   36

Early Fall Insides 2019.indd 36

9/11/2019 4:22:50 PM


of animal protein. In fact, most Canadians consume barely enough protein with just 17 percent of our caloric intake coming from protein. That puts us at the bottom end of the recommended range of 17 to 35 percent. Another fact is that 44 percent of the saturated fat we consume comes from ultra-processed verses just 10 percent from red meat. A 75-gram, or slightly more than 2-ounce portion of real meat contains 184 calories and 26 grams of protein. Compare this with Beyond Burger which contains 20 grams of protein and 250 calories in a 113-gram (4-ounce) patty; roughly half the protein density. Furthermore, if you look at the list of ingredients you will notice salt; at 390 milligrams of sodium per patty this will quickly add up to over a 1000 milligrams with the addition of a hamburger bun and condiments. There is about four times as much sodium in a Beyond Meat patty as there is in the real thing. The Beyond Burger contains over twenty ingredients and by definition is an ultra-processed food compared with beef which has one ingredient – BEEF. Eating plants is a not a new thing for humans and unfortunately most of the ultra-processed foods are plant-based. We should encourage the consumption of more fresh fruits and vegetables which are better for us in the raw state. Meat and vegetables work well together enhancing digestion and absorption of nutrients – kind of like it was meant to be!

processing capability; 5) Low returns in the steady state when Beyond Meat has to compete with the meat industry; 6) Not a healthy substitute for meat; and 7) Valued to perfection – to justify a stock price of $150 per share sales will need to reach $22 billion by 2030; current sales are less than 1 percent of that. Putting all of this information in perspective, what is the real reason that meat substitutes like Beyond Meat are able to gain any traction at all? It is really quite simple … the development and marketing of these products is controlled by a segment of the population who do not want to eat meat and they want all of us to adopt their views. In order to get the consumer to buy into their ideal they must find something to base their marketing strategy on. For Beyond Meat to tout themselves as a healthy alternative, which they simply are not, the choice will likely be their undoing. It seems that our society is fine with animals eating animals – thank you Discovery Channel and the Pet Food Industry! Maybe we need a campaign to highlight the importance of meat in the human diet and how the anthropomorphism (individuals who attribute human traits, intentions and emotions to animals) have driven us to consume ultra-processed, unhealthy food. International demand for Canadian beef has been strong and growing in 2019. A consistent, high quality product and our traceability system are key factors contributing to our success. But what can we learn from Beyond Meat? Embrace research to study the role of meat in the human diet and the value of forage eating animals in our ecosystem. Continue to educate our consumers about our product and how it is produced. Check out our competition’s website and see what they are doing that we could do too. Some ideas I gleaned from Beyond Meat … will packaging two ready to cook hamburger patties work for beef? Can we market new products like pre-seasoned hamburger ready for tacos?

George Atuan, a noteworthy financial advisor and contributor of articles to Seeking Alpha - a publication offering market insight, financial analysis, investment ideas and stock research provided his take on a Beyond Meat product. After trying a few bites he found that the taste reminded him of food he had eaten in the Middle East and described it as nothing more than an overpriced falafel. George providedseven reasons why he would not buy Beyond Meat stock: 1) Taste; 2) No economic moat – a distinct advantage a product has over its competitors allowing it to protect market share; 3) Too much formidable competition from real meat; 4) A production bottleneck from a lack of Be proud of our industry and continue to produce and market a high quality product.

Why Pixels Matter By Stephanie Lange

I have been doing photography for years and can honestly say that it’s never been easier to take a photo. Anyone with a smart phone has a camera with them 24/7 and may capture any important moments that can happen. We can even view those photos instantly, rather than waiting days to have our film developed, only to find that all the photos are blurry. Cameras are a bit like cars; most people know how to use them but few know how they actually work. We’re usually more comfortable placing our vehicle, one of our biggest assets, into the hands of a professional mechanic when it needs repairs. Your cattle are no different; your program is your biggest asset and you want to treat it as such. Many buyers make their decisions based on photos; so, bad photos can cost you money. The main benefit of hiring a professional photographer is that you can rely on their expertise. They know how to show off your cattle’s assets to catch a buyer’s interest. Best of all, your photos will turn out great with no extra work from you. Your cattle will display clearly in your marketing campaign and show off your program at its best. It also saves you the time it takes to capture and then process those photos. The post-shoot process can sometimes take as long as the shoot itself. It not only involves sorting through possibly hundreds of photos, there’s also photo editing that needs to be done. A professional would have the software and training necessary to get this done efficiently. If you’ve decided that you’re willing to tackle taking your own photos, give this article a read. It’ll help you to avoid one of the common mistakes that we see here in our office: taking photos at the incorrect resolution.

36 inches. It does this so that the photos can be shrunk down to a higher resolution for printing. Print resolution is 300 dpi; this is the standard across any type of printing technique and will produce clear, crisp photos. The main rules to remember with resolution are these: ● You can shrink a big, low resolution image and it will still print clearly. ● You cannot enlarge a small, low resolution image and expect it to print well. It’s good practice to take your photos with your camera’s highest resolution setting. It will give the designer the option to resize your photos to suit your needs. If you send in small, low resolution photos and then ask for them to be large in your catalogue, they will become pixelated. Your photo only has a set number of pixels; so when you try to scale it up too far, the computer has to fill in the gaps. A computer just sees photos as blocks of pixels; it has no idea what is in them or what they should look like. So, it will fill in the gaps with new pixels that are a similar shade to the pixels around them. For instance: empty gaps between green and black pixels will be filled with grey-green pixels. The result is that formerly crisp details become distorted and you can’t get them back. That’s a lot of numbers and jargon to throw at you all at once. Here are some practical examples to illustrate what this all looks like in the field.

Resolution If you zoomed in far enough on a photo, you’d see it’s made up of a patchwork of coloured blocks. These blocks are called “pixels” and they are the building blocks of every digital image. You’ve probably heard the word “megapixels” in camera advertising; it means a million pixels. It not only means that a photo has a million pixels in it but that’s also the maximum resolution a camera can produce in a photo.

This image was taken at the camera’s maximum resolution, then resized to 12 inches by 8 inches at 300 dpi. This size is more than big enough for just about any project.

Resolution is how many pixels or dots per inch, abbreviated to ppi or dpi, are in an image. For an example: a 3.2 megapixel, abbreviated to MB, camera can take 2048 pixels by 1536 pixels photos at it’s highest resolution setting, that’s 3,145,720 image pixels in total. There are two types of resolution: screen and print. Screen resolution is the lower of the two, usually no more than 72 dpi. This resolution is what your camera will take the picture at but the image will be really large, as much as 42 inches by

300 dpi

This image on the other hand is much too small and the resolution is only 72 dpi. When I scale this one up to match the first photo, the quality suffers dramatically.

Making sure that your camera is taking photos at its highest resolution is really easy. The setting can usually be found under “Image Size” or “Image Quality” in your camera’s settings menu. You may need to refer to your manual to find exactly where it is and what it is called. Typically, the highest resolution setting will be named pretty clearly as “High Quality.” If you see a setting with the word RAW in it, avoid that one unless you have professional photo-editing software like Photoshop. RAW files can only be opened in that kind of program. An easy way to tell if you’re taking large enough photos is to look at the file size. They should be over 1.5 MB or 1500 KB in size, at least. The 72 dpi image I used earlier is only 625 KB (0.6 MB), while the 300 dpi version is over 30,000 KB (30 MB).

72 dpi The difference is even clearer when the two photos are placed side by side. The detail in the 300 dpi image is plain to see, while the 72 dpi photo is much blurrier.

Emailing photos at the correct size doesn’t work in large batches, especially if they are big files. You run the risk of your photos being downsampled or resized by your email program. One or two photos should work fine, but for higher quantities you’re better off using a file sharing application like Dropbox or Google Drive. Most of these apps are free, easy to use and will let you effortlessly share photos. Whether it’s one or 100 photos, to get the best results with less work, use the services of a professional photographer. There are some great photographers listed in our Services section or you can also ask your fellow cattlemen for suggestions. If not, this article will give you the know-how to keep your photos looking sharp.

e c n e r e f e Quick R

Photo Resolution

1) Always take photos with your camera’s highest quality setting. 2) Make sure your files are 1.5 MB or more. 3) Email large batches of photos using a file sharing app such as Dropbox or Google Docs. Today’s Angus Advantag e   59
