Even as we walked up to the table for check-in, it continued: “Those photographs are supposed to be on tag board, not foam board. They will be docked a full ribbon placing unless you can get that corrected.” We had 15 minutes, more projects to enter and a sleeping toddler in the car, but a Dollar Store across the street held hope. I wanted to just forget it, but my nine-year-old’s eyes told me I couldn’t.

4-H prep should be an Olympic sport, or at least it felt that way as I helped my older kids get ready for entry day at the county fair. Forms filled out, recipes found, last coats of paint applied. It’s a race against the clock. Even with a couple of decades behind her, I think my mom still gets flashbacks to the anxiety around the third week in August.

The 560-page, full-colour book is the third history book published in the Canadian Angus Association’s 113-year history. Nearly every page features photographs from the Association’s archives or that were submitted by members with their histories. Tina Zakowsky, Canadian Angus Association Administration Team Leader and History Book Managing Editor says “The new Canadian Angus history book contains a comprehensive summary of the history of the Angus breed, an overview of Angus in Canada and 363 Canadian Angus member histories in the members’ own words. Our volunteer team has spent thousands of hours producing this beautiful tribute to those who have chosen to raise Angus cattle. We are confident that the stories on these pages will make you laugh and cry and will make you feel incredibly proud to be part of the Canadian Angus fraternity.”

But what problems have you just shrugged off as unsolvable? I was recently discussing the labor shortage in agriculture with a Colorado producer, noting it’s a subject that comes up on every ranch I visit. “They just aren’t creative enough,” he said. His calf branding day was fully staffed via a donation to the local wrestling team. Innovation born from necessity. Maybe there’s a health problem that could benefit from a change in herd management rather than a change in vaccinations. Maybe there’s a marketing hurdle that just needs you to build some relationships or back your herd with data, rather than trying a different auction barn.

We often say cattlemen are part scientist, part businessman, with a dose of meteorologist and mechanic thrown in. You’re rooted in science, but when great and immediate need comes along, don’t forget there’s an awful lot of your job that is still an exercise in art.

The solution came in the form of a friend who By Miranda Reiman walked in with extra tag board in the final minutes, a borrowed pair of scissors and rubber cement from the Extension office. 4-H taught me many lessons during my middle school and high school days, but I now have a different vantage point. As mostly support staff, chief encourager and head of the taxi service, this year showed me another truth: you can be pretty creative when you have to be.

Cattlemen and women already know this. Anybody who has ever dealt with a mad mama cow and still managed to tag that baby, knows that sometimes stressful situations inspire the most creative solutions. The Hamilton family has a business card and a Sometimes you even marvel at your own MacGyverstanding invitation from a steakhouse owner in like skills with a field or roadside repair. Vancouver. They’ve gotten a personal tour of a sushi restaurant in Calgary. On their Belvin Angus ranch near Innisfail, Alberta, they’ve shared meals with fishmongers, beef marketers and some of the most renowned chefs in the country. There are perhaps no better Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand ambassadors in Canada than Gavin and Mabel Hamilton, says CAB president John Stika. “They’ve always been willing to open up their gates and share their hospitality with people from all over the beef production chain,” Stika says. “Those firsthand experiences are critical to giving these guys the knowledge they need to sell more beef.” For their involvement with the brand, along with their focus on producing quality cattle that work for their commercial customers, Belvin Angus recently received the CAB Canadian Commitment to Excellence Award.

Gavin and Mabel, with their son Colton and daughter Quinn, and her husband Brendyn Elliot, accepted the award on Saturday, June 8 at the annual Canadian Angus National Convention in Drumheller, Alberta.

We like to host the people CAB brings because it’s a way of telling our story, and with any luck,” Mabel says, “getting rid of some of the misconceptions that are out there about what we do.” They have hosted many end-user groups, including the 50-person CAB Canadian Roundup in 2017. Perhaps they owe it to being an easy drive from the airport, a short hour north of Calgary International and just off of Queen Elizabeth 2 highway.

Maybe they owe the desire to do it to Mabel’s mom. “My mother was always very particular,” she says. “If you’re going to participate, you’re going to be involved.” To say they’ve taken that to heart is an understatement. The Hamiltons have served on committees, judged shows and organized meetings. Mabel was a longtime director and past president of the Canadian Angus Association. “They are committed to a quality product and customer service,” says Myles Immerkar, CEO of the Canadian Angus Association. “They’ve been

 Everyone knew that Shorty had a soft spot for dogs. He had never met a dog he didn’t like, so when Shorty started at Harry’s three or four years ago, it was a given that he and Mike would become friends. Mike had been purchased as a pup by Harry and trained by Shorty’s predecessor, who had reluctantly left Mike on the ranch when he moved on. Mike went everywhere with Shorty. They worked well together and Shorty really appreciated the help. Shorty talked to Mike as though he was a human and Mike listened to Shorty way better than any human. That relationship was finally put to a test when Cathy came along. Cathy liked Mike, but she really didn’t have a choice. He and Shorty were kind of a package deal when she came on the scene. The first time she had shown up at the ranch, there they were, riding across the pasture. Mike was asleep laying across Shorty’s lap tucked in between Shorty and the saddle horn. Mike woke up when he heard Cathy’s voice and jumped off the moving horse to greet her. “Mike…this is Cathy, Cathy…Mike.” Shorty had dismounted and was opening the barb wire gate that separated he and Cathy. “Hi Shorty!” Mike had joined Cathy and she was petting his head. “Mike is so cute!” Mike was a lot of things, but cute wasn’t one that immediately jumped to Shorty’s mind. He was smart, hardworking, loyal…but cute, nope not so much. But Mike was eating this up, he was leaning in for all the loving that Cathy would give.

Shorty grinned to himself as he looked over at his companion. Mike was asleep on the seat of the truck, right beside Shorty who was the pilot. For some reason that first meeting had popped into his head. It was a long time ago, Cathy was now his wife and Mike had a few years and a lot of miles on him since then. They had just finished hauling a load of cow calf pairs out to the spring range and they had one more load to go. It had been a long day for both man and beast. As they rolled up on the corrals, Shorty saw Cathy standing there waiting for his arrival. “I brought you some supper, you must be hungry!” Cathy smiled at her husband as he and Mike got out of the truck. “How long are you gonna be?” “Thanks Cathy. We just got one more load. Do you want to go for a ride?” Cathy was watching while Shorty wolfed down most of a sandwich. He took the last bit of the sandwich and tossed it to Mike. “Really Shorty? You feed Mike half your supper?” “Not half, just a bit to keep him going. He has had a long day! You wanna come with us?” Shorty was hoping to change the direction this conversation was going. He hadn’t even thought about the snack for Mike, it was just a habit. He thought better of trying to explain that to his wife. “Sure! Where are we going?” Cathy was still shaking her head at her husband’s treatment of that damned dog. “Teachy place.”

“Well let’s get going, it is going to be dark by the time we get there.” Shorty jumped into the truck, backed into the load alley and Cathy watched her husband and Mike load the trailer. They did work well together she conceded. As they set out from the home place, Cathy, who was sitting on the passenger side of the truck, separated from her husband by a border collie, looked over at her driver and asked “Why do you call it the Teachy Place? Harry calls it the Tsetse Place.” “Well…” Shorty began, “That is because Harry is wrong. Think about it, why would the locals name a place after an African fly that carries diseases? Remember Harry is a displaced American.” “Who or what is a Teachy, Shorty?” “A long time ago there was a small community over there. There was only four or five families living there, but there were enough kids that they had their own school and teaching in that school was an old, cranky bugger that the kids called “Teachy”, mostly because he hated that name. When the school closed, he stayed on that property and the name just stuck with the place. My Mom was one of those kids and Teachy pretty much turned her off education and teachers.” “Really? I didn’t know… Geez Mike! Do you have to fart all the way to the pasture?” Cathy rolled down the passenger window, Mike paid no attention to her accusation. “Hey it’s not his fault, he doesn’t like that whole wheat bread...it upsets his stomach.” Shorty realized as he was talking that there is a time when the less said, the better. There was little said for the rest of the trip. They rolled into the pasture, backed into the corrals and unloaded the cattle. Shorty let Cathy know they would wait a few minutes to allow everything to mother up before they opened the gate. It was getting dark by the time the cows had been reunited with their calves.

“Cathy, can you go just over there and make sure the cows head up the hill? Mike and I will get them out of the corral.” Cathy headed towards her position. “Don’t worry if they go the other way, they will find their way in the morning.” Shorty watched his wife give him a hand signal that he understood to be a thumbs up, at least one of her digits was pointed up. He opened the gate and watched the cows file out and up the hill just as Cathy had been asked. All except for one. That cow decided to go left instead of right and Shorty caught a glimpse of his wife running down the hill to cut her off. “Cathy down!” Shorty realized what he had said about 5 seconds before Cathy. He hoped for all those 5 seconds that she didn’t hear him. He looked over at Mike and he was as flat to the ground as Shorty had ever seen him and he was looking at Shorty in sheer disbelief. “WHAT DID YOU SAY?” Cathy had apparently heard. Mike began to slink away. “WHAT DID YOU SAY SHORTY?” Shorty was stuck for an answer. He didn’t see any purpose in repeating his wishes, “Sorry” was the best he could come up with. He turned around and there stood the love of his life and his wife. Both were staring at him, except his wife now had a smile on her face. “Really? DOWN” “Sorry long day, heat of the moment.” Shorty walked towards her for a hug. “You are a jerk Shorty!” Cathy was laughing now. She opened the truck door and let Mike hop in, by the time Shorty got in Mike was stretched out across the seat with his head on Cathy’s lap in what Shorty thought was a clear sign of solidarity. Shorty fired up the truck, Cathy smiled at her husband and Mike farted. Damn whole wheat.

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   21

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

Canadian Angus Foundation Launches New History Book Commemorating Breed and Member History June 17, 2019: For immediate release Rocky View County, AB — The new Canadian Angus history book, The Breed, The Legends, The History—Canadian Angus History Book, 2019 Edition is now available for purchase for $90 per copy. Books can be picked up at the Canadian Angus Association office in Rocky View County, Alberta or the Canadian Angus Foundation office in Regina, Saskatchewan or can be ordered by phone or email and shipped. A volunteer committee spent over two-and-a-half years gathering member histories and information and compiling the book which was launched at the President’s Reception on Thursday, June 6 which kicked off the Canadian Angus National Convention in Drumheller, AB.

Canadian Angus Foundation Chair Cecilie Fleming and Vice Chair Kirk Wildman unveil the Canadian Angus History Book on June 6, 2019.

The 560-page, full-colour book is the third history book published in the Canadian Angus Association’s 113-year history. Nearly every page features photographs from the Association’s archives or that were submitted by members with their histories. Tina Zakowsky, Canadian Angus Association Administration Team Leader and History Book Managing Editor says “The new Canadian Angus history book contains a comprehensive summary of the history of the Angus breed, an overview of Angus in Canada and 363 Canadian Angus member histories in the members’ own words. Our volunteer team has spent thousands of hours producing this beautiful tribute to those who have chosen to raise Angus cattle. We are confident that the stories on these pages will make you laugh and cry and will make you feel incredibly proud to be part of the Canadian Angus fraternity.” The Canadian Angus Foundation was incorporated in 1993 and is the charitable arm of the Canadian Angus Association.

The Art Of The Fix By Miranda Reiman

4-H prep should be an Olympic sport, or at least it felt that way as I helped my older kids get ready for entry day at the county fair. Forms filled out, recipes found, last coats of paint applied. It’s a race against the clock. Even with a couple of decades behind her, I think my mom still gets flashbacks to the anxiety around the third week in August. As I got in the car to drive to our fairgrounds recently, I exhaled a sigh of relief through my ironic smile at all that didn’t go right this year. The flowers that weren’t blooming in time for the table setting centerpiece? We bought silk. The paint that wouldn’t dry in the unusually humid weather that stayed on all week? My son had to apply a touch-up or two after it was loaded into the pickup bed and then we left a high-powered fan on it until the last second. Even as we walked up to the table for check-in, it continued: “Those photographs are supposed to be on tag board, not foam board. They will be docked a full ribbon placing unless you can get that corrected.” We had 15 minutes, more projects to enter and a sleeping toddler in the car, but a Dollar Store across the street held hope. I wanted to just forget it, but my nine-year-old’s eyes told me I couldn’t. The solution came in the form of a friend who walked in with extra tag board in the final minutes, a borrowed pair of scissors and rubber cement from the Extension office.

But what problems have you just shrugged off as unsolvable? I was recently discussing the labor shortage in agriculture with a Colorado producer, noting it’s a subject that comes up on every ranch I visit. “They just aren’t creative enough,” he said. His calf branding day was fully staffed via a donation to the local wrestling team. Innovation born from necessity. Maybe there’s a health problem that could benefit from a change in herd management rather than a change in vaccinations. Maybe there’s a marketing hurdle that just needs you to build some relationships or back your herd with data, rather than trying a different auction barn. We often say cattlemen are part scientist, part businessman, with a dose of meteorologist and mechanic thrown in. You’re rooted in science, but when great and immediate need comes along, don’t forget there’s an awful lot of your job that is still an exercise in art. Next time in Black Ink®, Nicole Erceg will look at why any ranch would adopt technologies that are not free. Questions? E-mail mreiman@certfiedangusbeef.com.

4-H taught me many lessons during my middle school and high school days, but I now have a different vantage point. As mostly support staff, chief encourager and head of the taxi service, this year showed me another truth: you can be pretty creative when you have to be. Cattlemen and women already know this. Anybody who has ever dealt with a mad mama cow and still managed to tag that baby, knows that sometimes stressful situations inspire the most creative solutions. Sometimes you even marvel at your own MacGyverlike skills with a field or roadside repair. Today’s Angus Advantag e   34

Brian Good Receives LMAC Industry Champion Award and OLEX Receives Canadian Angus Auction Market of the Year Award June 7, 2019: for immediate release Rocky View County, AB — Saturday, June 1 at the Livestock Markets Association of Canada (LMAC) Convention in Edmonton, Alberta, Canadian Angus Association (CAA) Senior Director of Business Development BC/AB Brian Good received the Industry Champion Award. As part of the evening’s festivities, Good along with CAA CEO Myles Immerkar and Director of Business Development SK/MB Bob Toner also presented the CAA Auction Market of the Year Award to OLEX (Ontario Livestock Exchange) near St. Jacobs and Waterloo, Ontario. LMAC Executive Administrator Rick Wright says that “Brian is what the Industry Champion Award was designed for. He is a very sincere and passionate man about the cattle business. Brian lives and breathes cattle every day of the week.” This is the third time that LMAC has presented the Industry Champion Award, designed to recognize significant contributions Industry Champion Award to the cattle industry and support for auction Brian Good and his wife Lynnanne Photo credit: Mark Shologan markets. The two previous recipients are Steve Primrose and Danny Skeels. “Brian is known across Canada for making the effort to promote not just Angus cattle, but the entire Canadian cattle industry,” adds Wright. Supporting auction markets and promoting the Angus breed have been part of Good’s role with Canadian Angus for more than 20 years. He has been proud to be an integral supporter of LMAC during that time. Good has helped choose and present the CAA Auction Market of the Year Award for 12 years and has worked with LMAC to present most of the awards at their conventions. In 1996, Larry Witzel purchased Ontario Livestock Exchange with two partners. The partners moved on to other investments leaving Witzel as the sole owner. He has been a driving force in the livestock marketing sector in Ontario and across Canada. OLEX helped pioneer electronic sales of both cattle and hogs. OLEX markets approximately 130,000 cattle, 100,000 sheep, lambs and goats, and 2,500 horses per year. Purebred dairy sales and Dutch-harness horse sales have also been regular added features of OLEX sales. Ontario Livestock Exchange’s facility is comprised of four auction rings, main barn, dairy barn and sheep barn covering 100,000 square feet. The facility moved to this current location in 1975. Brian Good says “We’re excited to present this award east of Manitoba for the first time. Larry does a great job Today’s Angus Advantag e   46

promoting Angus cattle and Angus-influenced commercial cattle and is very supportive of Angus programs like our tag program. He has lots of support from his wife Marianne and David Ropp in sales. This is a really good group and we’re very proud to recognize them for their support.” The Auction Market of the Year Award was introduced in 2006 to recognize and honour those auction markets that work hard to promote Angus cattle. Auction markets across Canada have been recognized for their support of the Canadian Angus feeder sales program. This marks the twelfth year that CAA has presented the award. The Canadian Angus Association is Canada’s largest purebred beef breed organization. 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.

Robert Geis of Barrhead, AB just completed his second year of animal science technology studies at Lakeland College in Vermilion, AB. He is the owner/manager of Geis Angus Farm with 60 head of purebred and commercial Black Angus females and 2,000 acres of cash crop. Geis is currently an Alberta Director on the Canadian Junior Angus board and has been actively involved in 4-H. He also played for the Barrhead Stealers Tier 1 AA ice hockey team which won two provincial championships and two silver medals while he was captain. Dick Turner Memorial Award Charlene Elliot was a finalist in the Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador competition and received the Dick Turner Memorial Award. Five years ago, she had the opportunity to show an Angus heifer which led to her family entering the purebred Angus business one year ago. Elliot purchased her first Angus animal two years ago and now personally owns five head. The Dick Turner Memorial Award was established after the passing of legendary Angus icon Dick Turner in July of 2010. During his lifetime, Dick committed 55 years of his career to livestock publishing and successfully promoted and advertised the Angus breed specifically through the Canadian Aberdeen Angus News magazine. It was Dick’s ability to foster relationships and his boundless enthusiasm that led to his successful tenure. He believed that “information is power” and was best shared with all stakeholders. Dick was a hard worker and recognized the quality of life and relationships as the most rewarding part of his job. Outstanding Young Angus Breeder The 2019 Outstanding Young Angus Breeder Chad Hollinger operates Hollinger Land and Cattle with his family, a 250-head purebred Black Angus, commercial cattle, cereal grain and oilseed operation near Neudorf, SK. He is a director on the Saskatchewan Angus Association Board of Directors. Hollinger is passionate about showing cattle, and in 2014 while he was in his late 20s, he won both Premier Breeder and Premier Exhibitor at Canadian Western Agribition, a significant accomplishment. Hollinger is quick and eager to lend a hand at cattle shows and always willing to take extra time in the ring when judging a show to help young people learn and grow. He also understands the commercial cattlemen’s need for good functional cattle that can bring a premium at auction.

New Canadian Angus Association Board Executive Announced at Annual General Meeting June 10, 2019: for immediate release Rocky View County, AB — The Canadian Angus Association is pleased to announce the new 2019–2020 board executive selected during the Canadian Angus National Convention in Drumheller, AB. Bob Hahn of Sherwood Park, AB was elevated from the position of President Elect to President. Trevor Welch of Glassville, NB moved into the Past President position, and Shawn Birmingham of Brandon, MB was chosen as President Elect. Hahn was elected to the Canadian Angus Association Board of Directors in 2013 and was elected for a second term in 2016. He has operated HR Hahn Cattle Co. in Sherwood Park, Alberta since 2000. Prior to joining the Canadian Angus Association board, Hahn served on the Alberta Angus Association Board of Directors from 2008 through 2012. Hahn is also a chartered accountant with his own practice, Hahn & Houle Chartered Accountants. Welch is the fourth generation of his family to farm on their land. Garvie Mountain Angus is located in western New Brunswick in the small community of Glassville. He, his father Fred Welch and son Taylor Welch currently run around 30 mother cows, made up of purebred Black Angus and Black Baldie commercial cows. With a growing land base, they plan to increase their herd to 50 cows within the next two years. Welch is a professional engineer and a licensed New Brunswick Land Surveyor by profession, and is the owner of Welch Surveys Ltd. Birmingham and his wife Teresa operate TSN Angus Livestock. They calve approximately 250 females each year, 80 of which are purebred Black Angus. The remaining commercial cows are used as recipients for their embryo program. Shawn and Teresa’s passion for the breed has been recognized on several occasions, including receiving the 2012 Manitoba Angus Purebred Breeder of the Year award as well as the 2016 Outstanding Young Angus Breeder award from the Canadian Angus Foundation. In addition to the new executive, Dale Easton of Wawota, SK was acclaimed for a second term on the board and Brett Wildman of Sangudo, AB was elected to a second term. Easton operates Eastondale Angus with his wife Shelly and their daughter Erika near Wawota. Eastondale Angus is a purebred cattle operation with approximately 180 females calving annually. Prior to joining the CAA board, Easton served on the Saskatchewan Angus Association Board of Directors for eight years. He was president from 2012–2014. Wildman was elected to the board in 2014. He owns and operates Wildman Livestock with his wife Traci and their daughter Paige in Sangudo, AB. He was raised in a purebred Angus operation and has worked as a herdsman and semen collector. In addition to the annual general meeting, 2019 Canadian Angus National Convention highlights included: • A social evening for early arrivals on Wednesday, June 6 at the Last Chance Saloon in Wayne • The President’s Reception on Thursday evening where the Canadian Angus Foundation’s new 560-page history book, The Breed, The Legends, The History was unveiled • The Farm/Ranch Trade Show on Friday and Saturday which were open to the public and featured 60 exhibitor booths.

Belvin Angus Wins CAB Commitment to Excellence Award By Miranda Reiman

We like to host the people CAB brings because it’s a way of telling our story, and with any luck,” Mabel says, “getting rid of some of the misconceptions that are out there about what we do.” They have hosted many end-user groups, including the 50-person CAB Canadian Roundup in 2017. Perhaps they owe it to being an easy drive from the airport, a short hour north of Calgary International and just off of Queen Elizabeth 2 highway. The Hamilton family has a business card and a standing invitation from a steakhouse owner in Vancouver. They’ve gotten a personal tour of a sushi restaurant in Calgary. On their Belvin Angus ranch near Innisfail, Alberta, they’ve shared meals with fishmongers, beef marketers and some of the most renowned chefs in the country. There are perhaps no better Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand ambassadors in Canada than Gavin and Mabel Hamilton, says CAB president John Stika. “They’ve always been willing to open up their gates and share their hospitality with people from all over the beef production chain,” Stika says. “Those firsthand experiences are critical to giving these guys the knowledge they need to sell more beef.”

Maybe they owe the desire to do it to Mabel’s mom. “My mother was always very particular,” she says. “If you’re going to participate, you’re going to be involved.” To say they’ve taken that to heart is an understatement. The Hamiltons have served on committees, judged shows and organized meetings. Mabel was a longtime director and past president of the Canadian Angus Association. “They are committed to a quality product and customer service,” says Myles Immerkar, CEO of the Canadian Angus Association. “They’ve been

For their involvement with the brand, along with their focus on producing quality cattle that work for their commercial customers, Belvin Angus recently received the CAB Canadian Commitment to Excellence Award. Gavin and Mabel, with their son Colton and daughter Quinn, and her husband Brendyn Elliot, accepted the award on Saturday, June 8 at the annual Canadian Angus National Convention in Drumheller, Alberta.

“Feet and structure is number one, but we’re always trying to improve carcass quality without sacrificing anything we need,” Brendyn says. So they research new genetics that complement the herd that traces back to some of their original lines of Lady Blossoms and Boardwalks. They recently purchased a bull in the top 1% for marbling as well as beef value ($B) in the American Angus Association registry, noting their genetics also have to work in “big country.” exceptional ambassadors for the Angus breed, both domestically and internationally for decades.”

“We want the commercial guys to be profitable,” Colton says.

Their children were active in Canadian Junior Angus and volunteer with that organization today.

Longtime customer Larry Sears, Stavely, Alberta, relies on their judgment to help him reach his endproduct goals.

And it all started when the son of a Shorthorn breeder married a Hereford girl nearly 44 years ago. “We had to find some common ground,” Gavin laughs. “But I’d always liked Angus.” The maternal function, the docility and the endproduct merit all in one package - it was an easy choice, Gavin says. The couple bought their original farm in 1978, registered their first Angus heifers in 1979 and are celebrating 40 years with the breed this fall. The last syllables of their first names blended together gave them a business name. Connections from their show ring experience gave them customers. “It was a good way to get our name out there,” Gavin says.

“They do the research and they’re aggressive on moving ahead,” he says. That’s given Sears confidence to retain ownership for the past two decades. Noting profitability can be “hit or miss” without carcass premiums, he says, “selling on the grid has been lucrative enough to entice us to feeding more often.” These enduring relationships are key to the Belvin program and help ensure its future. With the next generation full-time on the ranch, they’ve grown. A few years ago, they built a sale barn with enough space to fit their growing customer base. Looking back, Gavin can smile when he thinks of the first banker who said they wouldn’t make it, but still knows that doesn’t mean they can get complacent. “We’ve waited a long time for this,” he says, as Colton adds, “We’ve got to keep working to keep it up.”

Uniformity has always been a key. “We’ve sold a lot of bulls sight unseen,” Gavin says. “If he was going to like one, he’s going to like them all.” Today, what makes a bull stand out is his ability to move the program forward while still fitting in.

Plans For Busy Times By Miranda Reiman

My kitchen island is full of stacks: summer camp and summer ball forms to fill out, 4-H projects to register and swimming lessons to book. A month ago, we planned a short family camping trip.

fuel up the tractor before he left the field for the night, make the phone call first thing in the morning, or fix that piece of machinery well before it became an emergency. If you can do it today, do.

Then there are the work things to schedule. Planning meetings and conferences and one of my favorite parts of my job, ranch and feedyard visits.

• Slay the snakes as they come. I have some friends who like to use that quote when life gets crazy. My grandma’s version was, “Don’t worry any further than your headlights shine.” You do need to plan ahead, but don’t let the worry of the dozen things you have to do Saturday kill your productivity or satisfaction on Wednesday.

There is a lot of good in those sentences I just typed, but also a little bit of panic. How do I get all the people to all the places they need to be? How do I decide what fits on our schedule and what we cut? Do you ever feel that way as a cattle producer? Calving season gives way to fence repairs and breeding, which overlaps with haying (and often a planting season sandwiched in between). Before you know it, it’s time to wean. Perhaps you’re also trying to balance an off-farm job and a family who likes to see you once in a while. I know it’s not just me. It feels like there’s never really a good time to be gone. I prep ahead of time, making freezer meals and arranging for rides. I try to plan around big events like preschool graduations and elementary track meets, but whenever I travel, it takes me away from the one place I’m needed (and love to be) most of all. That means I have to give it some mental energy before I purchase a plane ticket or fill out an on-line registration. That approach might work on your farm or ranch, too.

• Expect the plan to change. When a babysitter gets sick or the weather cancels a baseball practice, I try to have a backup Plan B and Plan C. Sometimes a blizzard rearranges a story trip. Most producers have this “change on the fly” mastered (thank you, Mother Nature) but I still think it’s worth mentioning that being flexible is a solid survival tactic. Overwhelmed, worn out and run down…when May rolls around, those can be pretty accurate descriptions, whether you’re a teacher or a mother or a rancher. I’ve decided to look ahead as a way to set priorities and stick to them, to become more efficient and focused. It’s a chance to get better and keep panic at bay. Turns out, a busy future isn’t so unmanageable after all. Next time in Black Ink®, Nicole Erceg will look at maximizing. Questions? E-mail mreiman@certfiedangusbeef.com.

If your goal is bigger than “making it through the busy season,” then that can help you focus on what matters most. Here are some things I’ve learned, to keep calm in the chaos: • Delegate what you can. Maybe that’s hiring day help here or there, or outsourcing a job you used to do yourself. Could a custom fence crew give you more time to focus on breeding but still get the cows out to that pasture on time? • “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you could get done today.” That was my grandpa’s motto.
