is the date our program is being offered to the public. For over 3 decades we have supplied bulls to our local customers and abroad and we are going to continue with a more accurate and specific detail of needs within the beef industry. For example over 40% of our entire offering has qualified for use on heifers. With years of carcass evaluation on our entire calf crop we believe our EPD’S to be accurate and dependable. We also will be offering you a selection that has been weaned without any creep so that the maternal, growth and performance numbers are real. Longevity and structural soundness have been a priority as we develop these bulls with you in mind. Join us for the sale on March 25th at the ranch and be our guests for dinner.

Every reputation starts with the right introduction. If a rancher hopes for their good name to hit buyers before cattle enter the auction ring, there’s a lot of leg work to be done before they ever leave the ranch. After all, ‘reputation cattle’ can’t literally speak for themselves.

percentage points above national average – and 20 percent of them met the carcass requirements for the premium Certified Angus Beef® (CAB®) brand. She says she is looking for the bulls that will double the CAB rate, but this kind of data already backs up the good word, KCL Cattle Co. owner/manager Les Wall says.

Sheila Hillmer, Del Bonita, AB, Rancher

“I’m at the auction market when my calves sell there, and I personally watch to see who’s there, who’s buying what. I introduce myself, tell them about my calves, their health,” Del Bonita, Alberta, rancher Sheila Hillmer explains. “I say, show off the cow herd. But don’t sit back and wait for them to come to you. Get out there and market those cattle and be proud of what you’re doing.” But all the hand-shaking and introductions and sales pitches in the world won’t stand up if the cattle’s performance in the feed yard doesn’t meet expectations, she cautions.

“I’d heard from reputation that their cattle were good – that gave me quite a bit of confidence that they would feed out well,” Wall says. He wasn’t disappointed. “Their feed-to-gain was very, very good, very low, and cost of gains were low.” That’s not just bragging rights on paper, either – although Hillmer’s competitive nature allows her to admit that’s a driver too. It pays. Those cattle averaged more than $26 per head above the base price when Wall sold them on a premiumbased grid. On a load of 180 head, that adds up to nearly $5,000 extra in the feeding phase. The closeout further breaks down where those extra dollars come into play. With $20 per head coming from quality grade bonuses and $10 per head from qualifying for branded programs like CAB – they were discounted $7/head for 15% YG 4s – it’s clear that marbling matters when it comes to an impressive bottom line. “The more money we can make, the more money they can make, so it’s a win-win,” Wall says. Sure enough, he added – when Hillmer’s 2014 calf crop comes up for sale at the local auction mart, they’ll be looking to fill their yard with them again, knowing they’ll have to pay top dollar to outbid competitors. “You pay attention when they’re coming through. At the end,

“I think you can have it all,” Sheila Hillmer says, when it comes to mother cows that perform on the ranch and calves that perform in the feedyard and on the plate. “I believe these Angus genetics today can make your life pretty dang easy, and they can be profitable, too.”

Building a reputation, one goal at a time “If we really strive to get more uniform, consistently high-quality carcasses, then we’d have a more predictable, reliable and hopefully profitable business,” Hillmer says. For the first time, she and husband Martin got a taste of the baseline data that both supports and defines their reputation for ‘quality’ calves. In a fall 2014 closeout from KCL Cattle Co. in Coaldale, AB, a set of 180 Hillmer-raised calves graded 70 percent AAA – 20

“We’ve got to vaccinate; it’s such a simple fix for so many issues,” Hillmer says. “We learned the hard way many years ago what a BVD wreck will do, and from that point on, we said, ‘never again.’”

reputation cattle… well, they have a reputation – they bring the premium,” he says.

On the ranch, that means culling harder and using feedlot feedback to tweak genetics and management practices. On a quest to send more uniform, “cookie cutter calves,” they’ve tightened up their conception and calving time – 90% of calves arrive in a 30 day window – and invested in a pen scale to routinely sort and weigh calves and cows. “We know that cattle grow apart more than they grow together, so we’ve got to do what we can to tighten that up here at home,” Hillmer says. “But you can’t do that unless you know what you’re working with. Guessing just doesn’t work anymore. We’ve got to get more science involved.”

The Hillmers invested in a government-inspected pen scale in order to sell calves directly off the farm. She said they can still sell online through the local auction mart, maintaining ties and relationships there, while saving shrink, transportation and commission costs. “I did the calculations one year, and it turned out we would save about $50 per calf to do that, so it’s pretty significant,” Hillmer says.

Ditch the ‘bad boys’ at the back of the pen The sales pitch doesn’t end when the gavel drops, either. “I always want to follow up with that feedyard and ask, how did those cattle do? Where you happy?,” she says. “We don’t know what we don’t know until we ask. But we’ve got to start asking and we’ve got to have a bigger connection all the way through our industry.” They’re happy to “let the feeders feed, and let us grow calves,” she says, and realized they didn’t have to retain ownership, feed their own or partner with a feeder to stay interested in what happens to calves after they leave the ranch. “Building a relationship with these feedlots is critical. We’ve got to partner with these guys and figure out a way to do better all the way through the system, both from a herd health perspective, a genetic perspective, carcass quality. Everything we do should have feedback, from the genetic markers right through to the plate,” she says. Taking a trip to the back of the pen is a good place to start. “I figure, a good cow-calf producer should go to the feedlot in February, because you’ll see the back end of that pen, and it’s embarrassing. As an industry, we have to start getting rid of that back end.”

With a national animal ID system in place, Hillmer says, “there’s no reason we should be able to be tracking what happens to these cattle after they leave our place.” She checks the individual premise ID tag on one of their calves while vaccinating at weaning time. “We have to be able to learn more about our cattle if we want to raise the bar in the right direction.”

The ticket to the popular crowd is in the genes “There’s so much variability in the entire business that we can’t seem to figure out, as an industry, what to produce,” Hillmer says. “We need more people to just come out and say it – we need to produce a high-quality beef product, from highproducing, high-quality animals.” While different producer segments may send mixed signals, Canadian and international beef consumers have outlined what their demands are. Record high retail prices put big expectations on a satisfactory eating experience, and that comes down to one overarching characteristic: marbling. The highly heritable trait can work in tandem with other important production traits, with the right kind of focus, Hillmer says.

Today’s Angus Advantage  45


To do that, “The cow calf guy has to know who to contact to get the right genetics,” Wall says. “It’s part of our job, too, to try to educate them that we’re out there and looking for that kind of cattle.” Focusing on bull EPDs (expected progeny differences) that pair desired production traits with above-average marbling is a start. From there, Hillmer splits the cow herd into five pastures of similar females. They’re matched with complementary bull characteristics. She hopes to continue to pin-point the right pairings by gathering more closeouts and performance data like that provided by KCL this fall. “Producers like Sheila are really keen to knowing what the cattle do on the other end. She wants to have a good product at the end of the day, when they go to the slaughter plant. She’s made some good effort to buy the good genetics bulls,” Wall says. A desire to track information through the feeding phase in an indicator that the calves are likely to live up to a sale barn reputation, he adds. “It shows me that they care what they’re doing. If you start doing that year to year, you can see the change. Say you introduce different bulls, then you can see what those changes are doing and how it impacts us down the line,” he says. After all, an introduction and a little information is where a good reputation begins.

Making post-weaning information work for you It takes time and focus to build your reputation herd. One key part of that is gathering data to analyze and utilize in building profitability over time. “It’s about how you react to it and how can you use it in improving your management in your operation,” Brian Perillat, CanFax senior analyst, says. “People think they have good cattle, but if they end up not performing, whether at the feedlot or packing level, their cattle may not deserve to be awarded by the grid and the premiums. But at that point, they should be making the appropriate changes so they are raising the right kind of cattle that suit the demands better,” Perillat says. “You really have to go back to the information and know how to use the information, and then manage the cattle accordingly to get the most out of them.” Gathering harvest data or feedlot performance information can be a challenge, especially for producers who are dealing with smaller herd numbers. With cash markets riding all-time highs, he said many Canadian producers are opting for fixed and contract prices, but cattle with proven performance should still command a premium. “The biggest thing is – the high marbling, AAA, Prime kind of cattle with the high yield – cattle that can marble out efficiently and have the best yield grade are the top animals,” Perillat says. “There are additional premiums for cattle on program like Certified Angus Beef.” For cattlemen marketing a trailer load at a time, he suggested teaming up with other producers with like cattle to gain marketing power. Together or individually, cattlemen who seek a relationship with whomever is purchasing the cattle will allow them the option of getting performance data back to improve the next crop. “Find a feedlot that has experience with your type of cattle, that wants your type of cattle – and maybe has ways to pay you in premiums or discounts on quality – and that is willing to share that data back,” he says.

Keeley Hillmer, 17, helps his parents Martin and Sheila on their family ranch in southern Alberta. “He’s so good with the hydraulic squeeze,” Sheila says. “The kids, they just get this stuff intuitively, the controls and technology. Technology can make this life easier, reduce stress on the cattle and on us. That’s what we need to keep the next generation involved.”

“There are feedlots out there that do offer carcass data back and tracking of those individual animals, so they can feed that back to the cow-calf operator. Then they can then produce better calves for the feedlot, for the industry,” he says. “And, they can get paid accordingly.”

T

he saga began after the turn of the century. The Quill Lake Plains area opened in 1903 for homesteading and by 1905 - 1906, settlers began arriving. Soon sod shacks dotted the landscape as settlers began breaking the land, seeding and harvesting the crop produced by Mother Earth. With the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1907, life became much easier for this new breed of Canadians. The Canadian Pacific Railway paid, homesteader, Mackenzie $900.00 for a quarter of land, on which the village of Drake is presently situated and the right to find another homestead. The North Star Elevator and section house were built and an old box car, served as the station which the Canadian Pacific Railway named Drake, for Sir Francis Drake, the most famous of all Elizabethan sea captains to first sail around the world. The streets of Drake are named after crew members, Hawkins, Howard, Gilbert, Norreys and Cadiz. Today, Drake has a population of two hundred and fifty and is best known for Bergen Industries, an agricultural welding and fabrication company; Drake Meat Processors, famous for their Smoked Farmer Sausage and Robin Bartel, National Hockey League player and a member of Team Canada at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia in 1984. The village of Drake is also the home of a deeply rooted agricultural family with a vision.....the Blair’s! Early in the summer of 1905, T. Sidney Blair filed for homestead rights on S.E. Section 22, Township 32, Range 23, then returned to the Ottawa Valley that fall. Born in Scotland, Sidney immigrated to Boston, Connecticut and then

on to Vermont but finally found employment west of Ottawa in the settlement of Pakenham. In the spring of 1906, he went back west with a carload of settler effects and built a one room house with a small upstairs and a cellar below the house for the storage of vegetables. He also constructed a sod stable for livestock, protecting them from cold prairie winters. T. Sidney Blair purchased additional parcels of neighboring land enlarging their farming operation. Early in the fall of that year, his wife Elizabeth with son Lindsay (at the age of two) and infant Alice, came west via the railroad. (Grand-father Lindsay had paid her way first class, as he refused to risk her and the family on the harvest excursion.) The couple raised five children, four boys, Lindsay (J.L.), Sidney A. (known to all as Sandy), Clayton, Gilbert and daughter Alice. All the children attended Bloomfield country school, seven miles west of Drake. The high schools of neighboring Lanigan and Drake provided secondary education. A terrible accident immobilized T. Sidney Blair causing him to live in constant pain and confined to a wheel chair, until his passing in 1928. Sandy (Sidney A.) quit school to help on the family farm which he later operated as a partnership with brothers Lindsay and Clayton. Lindsay attended the University Of Saskatchewan, College Of Agriculture where he received his degree; while Clayton and Gilbert joined the armed forces as the winds of war swept over the globe. In July 1942, Clayton, a flight Sergeant in the R.A.F. went missing in action; his body was recovered from the North Sea and laid to rest in a Dutch cemetery in Amsterdam, Holland. In September 1944, Major Gilbert Blair was killed during action in Italy. The death of Clayton dissolved the partnership, but Sandy and Lindsay formed a new one changing the direction of many lives, under the name Blair Brothers.

Dale Blair

Lindsay and Eileen had three children; two sons, Sidney and Wilson and daughter Joanne. Sidney obtained a Masters Degree in Soil Science, and is involved in the fertilizer and Potash field, while Wilson (Bill) received a degree in Agriculture and returned to the farming industry, producing seed stock Herefords under the name of Bonaventure Farms. Joanne graduated from the University of Saskatchewan, specializing in Home Economics. Sandy and Ida had five children; three sons, Dale, Ronald and Gilbert; two girls, Betty and Heather. Dale attended the University of Saskatchewan and received a Diploma in Agriculture and returned to farming. In 1963, he married Janet Marshall, a nurse from Humboldt, Saskatchewan. They have four children; three sons Scott, Darren, Craig and daughter, Lisa. Graduating high school in Lanigan, Ron attended the University of Saskatchewan and after receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture, he also returned to the farming operation. In 1965, he married Connie Paproski, a graduate of Saskatoon Business College, born and raised just north of Lanigan. The couple have three children; sons, Kevin, Trevor and daughter, Lana. From the early years and through the 1940’s, the Blair families were strictly farming operations. But in 1948, Blair Brothers, Sandy and Lindsay became interested in the possibility of using fertilizer, and they purchased Elephant brand fertilizer from Cominco; this was the first rail car of bulk fertilizer brought into Saskatchewan. Ron Blair Prior to, the only fertilizer available was bagged. The fertilizer business started Today’s Angus Advantage 59


on the farm west of Drake, and later moved into town. From 1948 through the early 70’s, it was a seasonal business that revolved around the farm. Either Sandy or son, Ron, would come in the spring or fall and run the business for three to four weeks and then go back to farming. The business later moved to the town of Lanigan, which was centrally located on the Yellowhead highway and operated under the name of S.A. Blair and Sons, with business in Lanigan.

trucking; financial solutions and growing more important each year, agronomic services through its AgIntelligence platform. “We have progressive clients that want a higher level of service on their farm. As farms have gotten larger, it has become a balancing act. It is easier to buy bigger equipment, buy more land and put up more bins, but our growing season is so short and usually crops don’t come out of the ground until the 25th of May and frost usually arrives the first part of September there’s a lot that happens in that time; bugs, worms, fungicide, wind and hail. Therefore, it’s not as easy as putting fuel in equipment and sending a guy on his way; it needs a higher level of management and help from crop recommendations to soil analysis and fertility recommendations. Our agronomists are out in those fields, scouting and looking for anything that could negatively affect that crop, including disease. Bugs are something you can easily see, but disease is something that is hard to see until it’s too late. Costs are high, my grandpa said you only have to make seven out of ten decisions right, the challenge is to decide which three, you are going to be wrong on - you need to mitigate your risk by controlling your misses”, said Kevin.

In the early 1970’s, two major things occurred – Pound-Maker Feedlot and the use of fertilizer were established. The Wildeman family along with the Blair family were instrumental in the foundation of Pound-Maker, Canada’s first integrated feedlot with ethanol. It started at a time when Barley was seventy-eight cents a bushel and no one took it at that price. Kevin states, “Brad Wildeman’s dad was very much a risk taker and a visionary. All Blair family members own shares in Pound-Maker. Dale Blair was president for a number of years; Darren Blair worked there for eight years and now sits on the board of directors.” Secondly, the use of fertilizer, for improving crop yields and pastures, would become commonplace and rapidly expand. The fertilizer business became a full time enterprise. In 1983, Sandy’s sons, Ronald and Dale purchased the fertilizer company and named it Blair’s Fertilizer. The operation moved out of Lanigan to their present location, just minutes east on Yellowhead Highway #16. Due to the success of the endeavour, Ronald took over the fertilizer part of the company, while brother, Dale handled the farming operation, assisting each other during the busy season and when needed. In 2003, Dale’s son Darren and Ron’s son Kevin formed an equal partnership and purchased the enterprise. In the fall of 2014, Blair’s completed a new office complex just south of the main plant facility. From the small beginning of selling fertilizer off the farm west of Drake, Saskatchewan, Blair’s have grown and expanded to seven full service retail locations in Lanigan, Nokomis, Watrous, Liberty, McLean, Lipton and Strongfield with over one hundred employees. Currently, Blair’s are constructing a fertilizer distribution facility in Hanley capable of handling twenty-five thousand metric tonnes, serviced by rail. Under the umbrella of Blair’s Family of Companies, they cover your farming, livestock and yes, you’re wildlife gaming needs.

The Livestock Solutions division also employs nearly a dozen people with three full time nutritionists. The Blair families raised livestock through four generations and with their involvement in Pound-Maker, livestock nutrition was always explored but not in a business aspect. Major companies focused on feedlots, hutterite colonies, dairy barns, hog and poultry operations... producers who used high volumes with low margins. The cow-calf producer was ignored simply because that kind of market was labour intensive. Since those companies did not give cow/calf producers the time of day, improvement in herd nutrition was at a snail’s pace. “So typically, most people would head into the local Co-op to pick up a bag of 1:1 mineral and then hope that the cows wouldn’t eat it, so that they wouldn’t have to buy it next year. We wanted to get into the basics of cow/calf nutrition and by sampling forages and water, try to figure out what they needed and when they needed it. In the 70’s, most operations were feeding Barley and in the 80’s, they were feeding more Barley, but in the 90’s as people moved to more forage based diets, what we forgot was that we had been feeding Barley since the 1960’s and developed all our cowherds around high energy nutrition. When we took grain out of mature cow diets, and moved to more forage based diets, we created the potential for energy and nutrient deficiencies. We knew about the palatability of hay, based on whether it was too mature or whether it got rained on, but nutritive value, we really didn’t know.

The historic volume of crop production in western Canada in 2013 created a significant challenge for Blair’s customers in getting their product to market. Seeing the need to provide additional risk management for their ag retail business and for Blair’s customers, Blair’s Family of Companies established a new division called TexCana Logistics. The goal of TexCana is to help Blair’s customers and their ag retail operations in the movement of agricultural products more readily and efficiently through the agricultural supply chain in North America. Cattle producers are a proud breed, no one wanted to admit they were having challenges; however, once we started evaluating the problem, we found that the incidence of “downer cows” most typically occurred in the third trimester, when a cow’s nutrient requirements were the greatest. What we found upon sampling hay and water was in the hay there were excessive amounts of the trace mineral Molybdenum, and in the water high sulfates. Molybdenum in excessive amounts can interfere with a ruminant’s assimilation of Copper, producing Copper deficiency. Ruminants that consume high amounts of Molybdenum developed symptoms such as poor hair coat, poor body score condition, muscle weakness, reduced lactation, and in some cases, diarrhea, stunted growth and anemia. We held a meeting in Nokomis for our area cow/calf producers reporting our findings. The results showed hay samples that were largely Copper deficient, with higher Molybdenum levels and water high in Sulphates. This is significant because high Sulphate water can magnify the impacts of cows consuming a 100% forage based diet with high Molybdenum levels. By the end of the meeting, we had a lineup of producers telling us how many challenges they were having in their own herds with open cows or cow losses. Higher Molybdenum levels typically occur in forages when the water table is high and it can be exacerbated by cool, wet spring conditions. Working with cow/calf producers on this challenge to design solutions that are specific to their herd has given us a level of comfort with cow/calf operators in talking about whole herd nutrition,” said Kevin. As part of their animal nutrition business, Blair’s has also developed a division called Blair’s SportsMaster Pro. Designed for game farm operations outdoorsman and hunters, Blair’s has become a leader in providing integrated wildlife management solutions. Their team of dedicated professionals provide specific nutrition expertise for game farms or sportsmen alike. The product, “Record Rack” is a nutritional supplement designed and proven to attract Big Game while providing a balanced nutrition, maximizing genetic potential, and allows them to thrive in their environment. “Biologics” are scientifically proven Big Game food plots. Forages are exclusively bred to provide precise nutrition for deer and elk, plus being a natural attractant. These annual and perennial forages provide a stand that is harvested year after year by trophy animals in the area. Their products are marketed in outlets throughout western Canada.

The history of Blair Families and purebred cattle goes back to the late 1960’s, Ron and Dale Blair imported purebred Simmentals from Switzerland. All the boys were involved and active in the business; Scott and Kevin were board members of the junior association. They marketed bulls privately off the farm and held an annual female sale each February in Saskatoon, with fellow breeder Cy Udell of Bar U Farms from Viscount, Saskatchewan. In the late 1980’s, the herd turned commercial using the Simmental base with Red Angus. In the fall of 2006, Blairs.Ag Cattle Company was born with the purchase of thirty-five purebred Red Angus cows. Kevin states, “I have always believed that the decisions purebred breeders make around genetic progress to be such a big factor affecting the entire beef supply chain. Commercial producers depend on seed stock producers for their bull purchases and the consumer depends on the commercial cow/calf sector for quality beef. In other livestock production systems, genetic improvement has come quicker due to the use of technology and shorter gestation times. I really felt that if we utilized the tools and technologies available to us as purebred breeders and stayed committed to the path, that we too could accelerate the rate of genetic progress in the Angus breed.” It is difficult to make the commitment required to see genetic improvement through – it takes a lot of people and financial resources to stay the course. I always thought that our experience, belief and love of agriculture, coupled with our vision for where the beef industry needs to go; that we could play a larger part. When we made the commitment, I didn`t know if we`d be in the Angus business for ten or a hundred years, but I wanted our program to make a positive contribution to make it better and we were prepared to invest the resources to make that happen.” Blairs.Ag purchased thirty-five head of Red Angus to start their herd from the Jackson Cattle Company Dispersal, Sedley, Saskatchewan. Over the next eight years, their program expanded to over 450 purebred Red and Black Angus females, 50 purebred Herefords and over 250 commercial females used for embryo recipients. Shortly after the initial purchase, they partnered with Chad Haaland, Hanley, Saskatchewan and Levi Jackson, Sedley, Saskatchewan. Kevin explains, ``Instead of us expanding our facilities, we went to people that were committed to the industry and had facilities. We engaged Chad as manager of the cowherd

In retrospect ... Kevin Blair received his elementary education in Drake, high school in Lanigan and attended the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan. After university, Kevin returned home. In 1988, he married Noreen Hay, a Maine Anjou girl from Bradwell, Saskatchewan. They have three boys, Bradley, who attended Lindenwood University, St. Charles, Missouri, on a golf scholarship and after completing his Masters degree in Finance is back working for Blair’s Family of Companies. Dustin, attends the University of Saskatchewan, majoring in Economics and Garrett is taking finance at Lindenwood University, on a golf scholarship as well. Kevin is the Past President of the Canadian Angus Association and the founding President of GROW Community of Independents, which is an organization of the eleven largest agriculture retailers in Western Canada. Darren Blair took his grade school in Drake, high school in Lanigan and attended the University of Saskatchewan where he received a degree in Agriculture. After a number of years working in the livestock nutrition business across Western Canada Darren returned home to the family business. He married Deb Maier and they have two children, Tyler, working as a Business Agronomist at Blair’s Family of Companies and Megan attends the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan. Scott Blair (Darren’s brother) and his family operate a commercial and purebred livestock operation at Drake known as Blairswest and Craig Blair (Darren and Scott ’s younger brother) is part owner of two agriculture retail locations in Lipton and McLean, SK. Recently Craig and his son, Baxter, have gotten into the purebred business, adding to their one hundred and fifty commercial cows. When asked why they opted to be a multi-breed operation, Kevin related, “All of us and our staff believe in the beef industry and all major breeds have merit. Each breed has their strengths and weaknesses, but the commercial industry needs all breeds to be viable and maintain genetic advancement...good cattle are good cattle...it’s a combination of breeds that move the beef industry forward. What I failed to tell you during this discussion is...we implanted twenty-nine embryos and have nineteen Charolais calves coming this spring!”

competitive advantage – the environment, and let it be our ace in the hole. So we select cattle that produce in this environment and market them from Kansas, north. They do get some winter and we know our cattle will adapt and they don’t have to worry about Texas heat. Hybrid vigor comes from variation in a gene pool, for example when they breed Canola; there aren’t two parents the same. We need to understand heterosis and hybrid vigor. The challenge is to analyze your cows and be truthful to yourself of their faults and choose matings that will take you where you need to go. The problem in British breeds, is that we use highly maternal females and breed them to highly maternal sires, then keep the replacements and breed them to calving ease maternal bulls, with the end result being tight-pinned, light-haired, chiselfronted good for nothing cows. The challenge is understanding breeding...understanding heterosis and hybrid vigor...then having the vision and commitment to do it!”

Kevin and Noreen Blair

Where are you going from here? “Well, there are two things to being successful - vision and good people. Darren and I are fortunate to have good people, so our challenge is to make sure the vision of where the beef industry should go is where we’re heading, because it is very easy to get off on a tangent. Everyone has their own vision on where the industry should go, the trick is to be right. We believe we need to raise beef cattle in Western Canada that can live with Mother Nature...they need to be loosehided, good boned and haired-up. I tell a lot of my American friends, the reason Canadian cattle are better, and they are better, is that Mother Nature forces us to be better. We need to take our

Shorty is kinda shy. He’s a real good hand, just kinda shy. He’d get all red if a heifer spent too long lookin’ at him. So….when he started seeing Cathy, we were all pretty surprised. Be damned if they didn’t go off and get married a couple of summers later. Things went pretty good for Shorty, after they got married. He fleshed out quite a bit and most days you couldn’t have taken a smile off his face with a stick. All that changed last spring. It seems Cathy figured it was time to start a family. Shorty tried to sell her on a puppy, but Cathy wasn’t buying. So….Shorty gave up and the two of them set to making babies. Shorty figured they had practised quite a bit, so the rest should be pretty easy. But they tried and tried and Shorty just couldn’t get the job done. Cathy decided that she should get things checked out and so off she went to see Doc Hardy. Shorty came home that night and found Cathy waiting for him. She told him all about the tests and what Doc Hardy had to say and it wasn’t until she sat down that Shorty figured it out. She had already made the appointment. Now Shorty was never much on goin’ to see Doc Hardy, especially not about something like this. If he wasn’t bleedin’ or it wasn’t broke, he just couldn’t see any reason to go in. He was pretty sure it wasn’t broke and he knew he wasn’t bleeding… Shorty was pretty nervous when the nurse stuck him in a little room. Doc Hardy came in, talked a bit, then turned to a desk and handed Shorty a little bottle. She told Shorty that she needed a sample. Now… Shorty checked bulls every spring. He started lookin’ right away for the electric bullet. Doc Hardy smiled at him and told Shorty he could fill the bottle at home if he wanted. Shorty wanted. The next morning Shorty and Cathy figured things out and filled the bottle. Shorty popped the bottle into a brown bag and asked Cathy if she would drop the bottle off at Doc Hardy’s. Cathy declined. Shorty headed for town, the brown bag on the seat beside him. He pulled up to the clinic and headed in with the

brown bag. The nurse told him that Doc Hardy was out and wouldn’t be back ‘til noon, but offered to take the bag. Shorty declined. Shorty climbed into the truck and tried to figure things out. He knew that noon was too late and he sure wasn’t real big on filling another bottle. Then it came to him….Doc Kramer. Doc Kramer was a crusty old bugger, but that didn’t matter much at this point. Vets don’t have to have a great bedside manner. Shorty had seen Doc Kramer semen test, he was pretty good. A few minutes later, Shorty was in Kramer’s Clinic. He found Doc Kramer in the back and walked up to him, bag in hand. “Heh Shorty, what can I do for ya? “Heh Doc. I gotta bull I need checked.” “Where?” “Here,” Shorty pulled the bottle from the bag. “Okay….when was he collected?” “’Bout an hour ago.” “Early start huh?” “Yup.” Doc set up a slide and put it under the scope. He stared into the scope for a long time, fiddled with the slide a bit and stared at it some more. Shorty was starting to get pretty nervous. Doc Kramer looked up, and turned to Shorty. “This son of a bitch is no damned good..” “Huh?’ stammered Shorty. “He’s a cull. He’s shooting blanks…no damned good.” “Okay…I got the picture. Are you sure you gotta good slide?” “Yup. His nuts must be too small” Shorty swallowed … hard. “Can I have a look?” “Sure.” Shorty looked into the scope. There was a whole bunch of little circles, some with tails, most without, and only a few were even moving.

“You ain’t gonna get any calves from that useless bastard, Shorty. You might as well ship him. Get yourself a good, young bull for Chrissakes or you’ll never get anything bred.” “Yeah….sure. Thanks Doc.” “No problem Shorty.”

Shorty turned and started for the door. He stopped and turned to Doc Kramer… “Heh Doc!” “Yeah?” “Know where I can get a good puppy?”

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.”

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.

Considerations When Buying Your Next Bull Borrowing from Harlan Hughes, beef industry economist, the single most important factor influencing the cow-calf producer’s bottom line is the unit cost of production (UCOP). This is determined by dividing the total costs of maintaining the herd by the total pounds of weaned calf produced by that herd. The UCOP is often reported as dollars per 100 weight of calf which then makes it very easy to determine profitability when comparing it with market price. Simply put, producers with the greatest difference between market price and UCOP are the most profitable. Neither the lowest cost nor the highest weaning weight producer are necessarily the most profitable. Since costs are largely determined by the number of cows, and gross income is determined by the pounds of calf sold it is logical that the most important variable influencing the UCOP is pounds of weaned calf per cow exposed to bulls. With market prices the way they are today extra pounds of weaned calf translate into huge profits real quick. More available dollars in the beef cow-calf sector present some exciting opportunities for investment in herd genetics. Improvements in herd productivity through purchased females is very slow - bulls are by far the most effective way to introduce desirable traits into a beef herd. Selecting bulls based only on the need to get the cows pregnant is arguably a survival tactic that wasn’t even defensible when our industry was on its knees. Good bulls were justifiable then and even more so today. You cannot expect your herd to perform any better than the bulls you select. Moving forward and improving on what you already have should be the goal of any business. Don’t miss out on opportunity! The compounding effect of sire selection decisions is amazing. The bulls you turned out last year will contribute half of the genetic material to the calves born this spring. Quite simple really - half from the sire and half from the dam. However, the sire, maternal grandsire and maternal great grandsire together account for nearly 90% (87.5% to be exact) of a calf’s DNA. If the great grand sire was first used in 2010 and produced a crop of heifers that calved as two-year olds in 2013 there will likely be a next generation of heifers calving this spring (heifers giving birth to heifers). Therefore, in most herds a four-generation photo can be possible in as little as 5 years. I don’t think you can run any business on gut feel, intuition, or eyeballing. My mantra is you can’t manage what you don’t measure! Take a look at how your herd has been performing. Are your pregnancy rates, disease rates, length of calving season, proportion of weaned calves and weaning weights what you expect? Are your heifer replacements performing as good as or better than previous generations of heifers? Although many management decisions can influence these parameters your

choice of herd sires can have a tremendous affect. Bulls with larger scrotal circumferences produce more sperm, are able to breed more cows and have daughters who reach puberty sooner and have greater lifetime fertility. Science has shown that herds with the highest reproductive performance routinely purchase herd sires with above average scrotal circumferences. More calves born during the first cycle or two of the calving season means more pounds of calf at weaning time. Expected progeny differences (EPDs), genetic (DNA) markers, carcass evaluation data and indexes are other tools that should be used to help select bulls. Weaning weight (WW) is my favourite EPD as it is the most tangible for the cow-calf producer. Two visually identical bulls of the same breed with a 20 pound difference in their WW EPD are expected to produce calves that differ in weaning weight by an average of 20 lbs. The birth weight (BW) EPD should also be considered. Birth weight, WW and yearling weight (YW) are highly positively, correlated. Birth weight is the biggest single predictor of dystocia and more calves are lost at or around birth than at any other time. Remember, a big calf won’t be worth much if it is dead. Bulls with near the top of the breed WW EPDs, but with average or below average birth weight EPDs are becoming more prevalent. The calving easing (CE) EPD should also be examined and remember that EPDs become more accurate as performance data from progeny and other relatives is included in the calculation. Look at breed averages to see how your potential purchase stacks up. Indexes are also useful as they lend credence to the EPD’s – animals with the highest weaning weight and yearling weight EPDs within the herd should have the highest indexes for that trait. A useful exercise for any herd that purchases registered bulls is to look up the current EPDS through the breed association website for bulls that you have used in the past. Check out how they rank in comparison with the breed average for various traits you may be interested in. Because our cattle are improving each year a bull that was superior for a trait 10 years ago may be just average today, but more importantly the EPD information and your herd performance records may help you decide what traits you may want to strengthen. I recently looked up a very influential herd sire that was born 25 years ago and was pleased to see that he still ranked well above breed average for weaning weight, yearling weight and milk. So ... if reducing your Unit Cost of Production and maximizing your profitability interest you then using a few tools to help you select superior herd sires can pay off handsomely. Improving the genetics of your herd through bull purchases is kind of like picking low hanging fruit – lots in the basket for relatively little effort.

Red Lone Stone Revolver 138Z (Lot 1)

Revolver 138Z sells as Lot 1 in Lone Stone Farms Annual Bull and Female Sale. We are delighted that he won Senior Bull of the Year and Show Bull of the Year for the CAA during the 2014 show season. Revolver is out of an elite cow and is truly a performance bull. Extra length of spine, yet balanced in his depth of rib and massive quarter. He walks free and is very athletic. He sells in his entirety.... 100% walking rights and semen rights. He also comes with 700 straws of Canadian and International semen which is stored at Alta Genetics. His progeny so far are standouts in the breed so there is no guess work left with this bull. He will be one of the best bulls in the country to sell this spring. Check our web site for video.

MANITOBA ANGUS ASSOCIATION NEWS

Manitoba Angus presents Commercial Producer of the Year for 2014 to Leaning Spruce Stock Farm Leaning Spruce Stock Farm is owned and operated by Elwood and Pat Shearer, Ryan and Wendy Shearer and their three children Kain, Jensen and Lexie. Elwood operated the farm starting in 1970. In 1990, Ryan became a partner and the farm name became “Leaning Spruce Stock Farm.” They own or rent a total of 5,000 acres. 3000 acres is pasture and the remaining 2000 acres are used to grow oats and barley, 250 acres for corn silage and hay for feed. Some canola is grown as a cash crop. They calve out 400 cows and heifers. Calving starts in March with the heifers and the shared herd with Botany Angus. On April 20th, the cows start to calve on pasture where Angus stand out for the mothering ability to get their calf up and nursing. Over the years, the first Angus bulls were bought from Six Mile and Hamco Farms for calving ease on Simmental heifers. In 1993, they started buying Black Angus bulls first at the RMWF sale from Greenbush Angus, then from the Cattlemen Connection Sale from Dryland Angus, Brookmore Angus and Mountainview Farms. They have also used bulls from Botany Angus, Prairielane Farms, Spruce Ridge Angus and Maple Lake Stock Farms. They have also been in partnership with MVF and Botany Angus in two embryo programs which made it possible to get some very high quality bulls and heifers to start a herd of purebred Angus. These cows are used as commercial cows and bred AI to produce some of their own bulls for in herd use. Ryan and Elwood like the Angus calves from Angus bulls for calving ease and good lively calves that get up and nurse on their own. They like the Angus cows for their great mothering ability and great udders. All of these traits are ideal for pasture calving. Their marketing can vary from year to year. A large group of bred commercial heifers are offered for sale each year. Cows are culled on performance, attitude, udder quality, feet and legs as well as age. The cull cows and heifers are finished for slaughter and the fat steers are sold through P Quintaine & Son Ltd., going mainly out west. In the past semi-loads of fats have gone to eastern and western Canada and many loads have gone to the USA. Elwood has coached hockey for 20 years. Pat

has just retired from many years of nursing. Wendy runs a small hair salon and Ryan does some clipping for bull sales. Kain, Jensen and Lexie all play ball hockey, each on different teams. This will be their third year in 4-H as the next generation gets involved in the farm. What are the future plans for Leaning Spruce Stock Farm? Elwood says he would like to slow up a little!!! The cow herd may remain the same at 400 head. They will continue to offer quality bred heifers for sale and with the market like it is, there are more choices.

Leading Spruce Stock Farm presented with the Commercial Breeder award from left to right.: Back row: Manitoba Angus President. Allan Nykoliation, Wendy & Ryan Shearer. Front row: Lexie, Jensen & Kain Shearer and grandparents Elwood & Pat Shearer.

They can background calves and sell them or finish them to slaughter weight. When asked, Why Angus? They replied #1. Calving ease with new calves that are up and nursing in minutes. #2. Angus cows with great udders, great mothering ability and easy keepers. #3. Carcass quality, which is very important when finishing for slaughter to get the top grades!!! Angus genetics have been working for Elwood and Ryan and will do so for many years to come!

By: Chris Poley 2014 turned out to be an amazing year, actually a record year in the beef cattle industry. Far beyond what many of us were predicting, even those much smarter than me or even Ted! With live cattle prices significantly higher, in some cases double what the same cattle sold for just a year prior. Many producers found themselves dealing with a problem they have not even thought about in more than a decade…tax. branding or trip to a cattle sale. The long term plan involves updating infrastructure, expanding the ranch Finally a problem you can deal with! and cow herd. This is a great time to start succession Still many producers are holding their breath planning;you can now have some confidence in wanting wondering how long higher prices and profits will last. your kids to take over the operation, believing that There are a lot of farmers and ranchers that feel this they can make a decent life for themselves. Succession is a dream and are skeptical to let themselves believe planning is not quick or easy and usually takes some it has come true. I’m a believer that it is true and professional assistance, but a solid plan is needed it is based on shear supply and demand, not politics to transition your operation for it to be successful or stock traders falsely affecting a market, demand for both yourself and your children. Agriculture is remains strong and supplies are low and tough to big business and we must treat it as so to remain build. The USDA recently released projections for successful. the next ten years to the year 2024. They predict; In the short term planning and very near farm prices for beef cattle will rise from an average of $1.5252 a pound in 2014 to $1.5754 a pound in 2015 future, this year’s herd sire selections must be made. to a high of $1.63 a pound by 2017, before dropping Actually this falls under both short and long term back to $1.5617 by 2024. The price follows the size planning because if you retain females, your herd sire of the beef herd, which the USDA predicts will still selection will impact your program for generations; drop in 2015 before starting to rebuild thereafter. so you want to make educated selections. This issue Our numbers here in Canada have followed and will is packed full of reputable operations, offering you many options, genetic variation and management continue to closely follow those of the US. variation for you to select your bulls from. The good So breathe, and make plans for the future bulls are going to cost more this spring, not because based on a new reality in the cattle business, both there is a shortage of bulls but because there is more short term and long term. Short term plans are those profit in the industry, allowing more producers to bid that involve much needed equipment updates, etc. harder and farther on the top bulls. and heaven forbid, maybe even a well deserved and long overdue family vacation, which is not a weekend See you on the bull sale run!

The Final Word

“In this period of the livestock industry, inventory dictates leadership”...this statement was made to me in passing last December, while checking out of a hotel, by a successful young man in the purebred livestock business...a statement which has hung in my mind ever since. No doubt, demographics have drastically altered during the last half century, especially in the past decade or so. The aging producer is the primary problem...as of the 2011 Canadian Census the average age of a farmer rose to 54 years from 49.9 in 2001. (The number in the United States is 57 years.) Up until the past two years, beef prices held no significant lure for the next generation to remain on the farm or ranch...the robust, energy industry, coupled with new exciting technological opportunities, virtually erased incentives for young people to stay in agriculture. But those who stayed with the family beef operation and survived the aftermath of May 20, 2003, have become a new breed of farmer or rancher who approaches the production of beef cattle, in the purebred and commercial sectors, as an important business; today these dedicated families are being highly rewarded for their courage and tenacity. Through rigid culling, new genetic technology and a business-like approach, purebred herds have increased herd quality, performance and a greater degree of predictability in product they supply to the commercial sector. In all breeds, it is the onus of the purebred breeder to lead the direction of the breed’s contribution to the improvement of the livestock industry. The majority of cattle production on farms and ranches in North America is situated on the three Prairie Provinces of Canada and on the Plains of the United States... our neighbors to the south. Although census reports state that the average cow herd size in the United States is 40 head, in Canada it is 61. Pasture land east of the Mississippi River and Thunder Bay is steadily turning into pavement as these areas continue urban growth. The cost of land in those areas, suits only high intensity operations or hobbyists, even though it holds the majority of consumers. In years to come, more and more onus will be placed on cattlemen in the central belt of North America needing to produce a higher degree of product; in addition to being efficient stewards of the land. The watch word for the decade ahead will be “inventory”...restocking the North American cow herd will require large numbers of young breeding females with breed identity. Just as we progressed from half section family farms in the grain industry to operations that are vast both in acres and scope, the livestock industry, especially the cow calf producers, have headed on the same course. In order to obtain large packages of quality breeding stock, male or female, producers looking to increase or add numbers, will have to source from large breeding operations and pay healthy premiums for one-iron replacement stock. Hence those who have inventory will ultimately lead the way through this next exciting decade or two...yes inventory is the leader! Expansion of inventory is a combination of time plus money. Financial institutions are getting a warm feeling about the beef cattle sector of agriculture...where were they when bred cows were $750.00? Since the future of the livestock industry hinges on the involvement and participation of young people, breed associations and government need to put their best foot forward with assistance and education. We are a minority ... agriculture rests, as a taken for granted portfolio; just above house-keeping on Parliament Hill. Our elected officials, while looking for new markets for our products out of country, are losing sight of our domestic requirements and growth of our future generations. (For most, getting elected a second term to assure a lifetime pension seems to be priority one!) Investment tax credits for breeding stock would put a new level of financial structure in the livestock sector.....now that we have $45.00 a barrel of oil and $3500.00 cows! That’s asking too much...so how about just putting a little agriculture; back into the class room...learn about a cow, rather than an I-Pad. At market levels such as we see today, one can ill afford to rest on the past year’s laurels. In good times, the choice of sires that will run in your pastures, needs very careful selection and scrutiny...remember that half the calves will be replacements...whether they remain in your herd or move to new pastures....quality will award you with leadership in the pasture and sale ring!
