There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the calf market this fall, feedlots (who were maybe a tad overzealous last fall) are experiencing record losses which are eating up record profits made just a couple of years ago. They are being very cautious, maybe a little over cautious when placing bids on calves this fall, and who can blame them. The prices being offered today are significantly less than last year, but still not a total disaster. With the abundance of feed in Western Canada the cost of keeping a cow around will be significantly less, which will help narrow the gap in net profit compared to last year, when high priced hay was purchased and trucked a long way. One thing that is very noticeable this fall (on the calf market) is heavier calves, 600 pounds and over, are netting significantly more dollars in producer pockets, versus some years when there was not a big difference in net dollars per head over most weight categories. If this trend continues and I believe it will, (it only makes sense) then there is definitely more incentive to be a better manager and use superior genetics. Heavier, high quality calves have always paid a premium but in today’s market it is even more evident than ever. The first and most influential thing you can do as a commercial producer in improving quality and weaning weight is purchase a superior bull. Your herd bull has 50% genetic makeup of every calf he sires while the cow only contributes to her individual calf. Then you need to implement the best management and animal husbandry practices possible enabling those calves to reach their genetic potential.

For those of you who are seed stock producers, you have an obligation to provide the best possible bulls for the commercial industry. The beef cattle industry needs breeders and not multipliers, if you are just a multiplier of below average cattle with a registration paper, then you are actually of no value to the beef industry, actually you are a detriment. Everyone has the right to be a purebred breeder if they so choose, but with that right comes the responsibility of supplying a sound breeding bull that will enhance the genetics the commercial producer already has. As purebred breeders we must continue to strive to breed cattle that excel in all desirable traits.We have more tools at our disposal than ever before to help evaluate and expedite progress in these regards. There is one other thing I feel, we must get more vigilant on, both purebred and commercial breeders must meld together as an industry. We need to tell our story, beef production is more wholesome, natural and “ green” than any other protein production. However, people in cities are not getting that message and even some of our retailers are putting a negative spin on the way we produce beef in this country, for their own short term gain. Somehow we need to band together; breed associations, cattle feeders, stockgrowers, cow/calf producers and packers supporting and funding national advertising, educating consumers. Our advisories are getting more vigilant and better funded all the time; chicken and pork producers are not who we need to worry about...anti-farm groups are.

Animal Rights It was Shorty’s day off. It seemed that he always spent his days off pretty much doing what it was that his wife wanted to do, but he didn’t really mind. He remembered when he didn’t have a wife and the days off he had then were no more productive and usually not as much fun. On this day, they were headed for the local rodeo. Shorty was kind of on the fence when it came to rodeos. Given his profession, that might seem a little odd to the casual observer, but not so much to Shorty. In his view, the rodeo cowboys were about as much cowboys as the guy packing groceries at Safeway. Most of them had very little to do with the day to day operation of a ranch or the handling of livestock the way it needed to be done. He didn’t mind going though, he viewed it as entertainment… well all except barrel racing, that was just plain painful. So it was that he arrived at the rodeo grounds this summer day along with a few thousand others. Shorty parked the truck in a grassy field that Jeff Clark used as a pasture all summer. He smiled as some city lady in shorts and sandals stepped in a fresh one left behind by Jeff’s replacement heifers. The woman was trying her best to wipe as much of the green off what were beige coloured sandals as she could, while her husband pee’d on the rear tire of a pick up truck. “That’s goin’ to waste” Shorty pointed out to the guy as he nodded towards the woman with the shoe problem. “ You should be using that to wash her feet.” “That’s disgusting!” The lady was not impressed with Shorty’s ingenuity. “I am just saying lady….I am not the one with cow crap between my toes.” Shorty felt the firm touch of his wife at his elbow as she pulled him away from the pair before he could offer any more advice. “Really Shorty?”

It was one of those questions that Shorty had learned for which there was no correct answer. As they made their way through the parked vehicles towards the grounds, his wife noticed one of her buddies had arrived in her “rodeo rig” ready to perform….well run the barrels. “Shorty…there’s Brenda. in.”

“Ya know….I think I’ll just go in and wait for you over there.” Shorty motioned to an empty section of the stands up wind of the dust. “Great…I’ll see you in a few minutes.” Shorty smiled to himself. He really wasn’t interested in all the reasons that the ground wasn’t right here, or the stories of her “tipping to win” over the last few weekends. He almost made the stands without incident….almost. He wasn’t really looking as he came around the last row of parked vehicles, and he almost bumped into a well dressed and out of place woman standing with her back to the stands facing anyone approaching the rodeo grounds. “You sir, are a criminal.” Shorty looked up. She was looking right at him. He glanced over both shoulders…nope he was alone. “You criminal!” she repeated. “What?” Shorty was puzzled. “I can tell by the way you are dressed… and the fact that you are here… you are a criminal.” Shorty was sure he was dressed okay, his wife had picked out his shirt, his blue jeans and hat were both clean and he was pretty sure his fly was done up….Shorty checked his fly, yup, it was done up. He looked over at the woman. “You exploit animals! You are a cowboy, aren’t you?” She didn’t wait for Shorty to reply. “You use animals without any regard for their emotional or physical well being.”

Let’s go see her before we go

26 10/31/2016 11:41:48 AM


Shorty stopped dead in his tracks. “Lady you know nothing about me and even less, I suspect about the ‘well being’ of animals.” He had surprised himself, normally he would have just ignored her, but she was beginning to piss him off. “I know that criminals like you should be prosecuted for the damage that you are doing to all the animal species that you come in contact with both day to day on your so called ‘ranch’ and at this ridiculous exhibition of animal cruelty.” “Damage?” “Yes damage! Do you think for one moment that the horses that you abuse every day want you on their backs trudging up and down mountains? Do you think the cattle want to be penned up all winter, or chased all summer? Did anyone ever ask them if they want their baby ripped from their lives each fall?” Shorty looked around. There was a crowd forming as people stopped to hear the woman rant. “Lady…first off….you don’t even know me. Let me tell you a thing or two.” Shorty was pissed off now. “I get a little tired of people like you that contribute absolutely nothing to the economy of this country standing here interrupting the enjoyment of my day off with the line of bullshit that you are spewing. I am a cowboy, yes I am, and my job is the husbandry of cattle, I look after the needs of the herd that we run on our ‘so called ranch.’ We put them in a pen in the winter in order to keep them fed and watered and safe from predators, we move them around all summer for the very same reason. The horses that I ride are alive because we care for them, we worm them, we feed them, we vaccinate them so they won’t drop dead from any number of things. I have a dog too, that I ‘exploit.’ That dog is laying on my front step right now waiting for me to return in hopes that we will go do something that he loves to do….work.” Shorty looked over at the crowd; they were standing staring at a red faced PETA person. “You animal rights assholes have to stop imposing human emotions and values on animals.” Shorty continued. “ I can tell you without even the slightest of doubts that if we were

not there to ‘rip the baby from her side’ the cows would kick the crap out of her “baby’ soon enough. You want to know how family minded animals are….let me tell you. If you put a bull in with a herd of cows, he will breed each and every one of those cows as they come in heat….even his sisters, his mother and his grandmother if they are in there.” “That’s disgusting!” The red faced woman looked appalled. “That is the animal kingdom Sweetheart. You people are arrogant enough to assume that each and every species on this earth have the same emotions, pain thresholds and values as humans. What in hell gives you the right to not only assume that, but then disrupt our day with your bullshit ideas?” She was silent for a second. “They would breed their mother?” “You bet your ass Sweet Cheeks, as many times as he could get away with.” Shorty glanced to his left. There at the edge of the crowd stood the lady with the sandal problem, beside her stood Pissing Man, with a fresh beer in his hand. Both were grinning from ear to ear. Shorty saw an opportunity and seized it. “Do you know the difference between this young lady and you?” He had moved next to the shoe problem and was looking directly at Miss Animal Planet. “No, no I don’t,” PETA lady looked confused. “Well,” Shorty began as he gestured at the green stains on her sandals, “her shit is on the outside.” Miss Animal Rights mouth fell open and for a moment but she did not speak. She appeared to be deep in thought. “Why would he breed his mother?” The crowd, sensing the show here was over began to disperse and Shorty began to move with it towards the rodeo. He glanced towards the parking lot as he entered the stands, the animal rights lady was walking slowly towards her Smart Car. Shorty smiled. Days off never used to be this much fun.

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.”

attlemen have focused on quality from the beginning. Their success at delivering cattle that perform for the next owner kept them in business through market ups and downs. The approach seems to work, but can it keep working in an era of relatively higher beef prices? Mark McCully, vice president of production for the Certified Angus Beef ® brand (CAB®), challenged producers at the inaugural Canadian Beef Industry Conference to consider looking at their business in reverse. “We know genetics are important,” he said. “We know health management is important at the ranch and at the feedyard – but they’re also critically important to consumer satisfaction, which ultimately drives demand for that product.” “And that,” he said, “brings profitability to the whole system.” “Let’s start with the consumer and work our way backwards,” McCully said in the August 11 presentation in Calgary, Alta. “That’s how we will most effectively hit the consumer target.” Showing a perfectly grilled and plated steak, he encouraged ranchers and feedyard operators to evaluate how their management decisions affect the end product. He reminded everyone that marbling is the basis of quality grading systems and highly correlated to consumer satisfaction.

“Adding that takes nothing away from cow herd performance but adds much to the value of the end product,” he said. Improved marbling starts with genetics, as carcass traits are highly heritable. McCully shared data from the USDA Meat Animal Research Center that shows Angus cattle surpass all other breeds in ability to marble, even though there is much variation within all breeds. That’s why producers use expected progeny differences (EPDs) as comparison tools he said, noting recommendations in CAB’s “Best Practices Manual” available online. DNA-based tools can also help select heifers with increased marbling potential. Once calves are born, beef quality is maximized with proper care. “It boils down to what those things are that impact marbling,” McCully said. “Health and management, nutrition and creep feeding in particular. Know and be aware that the nutritional management of the calf while he’s still on the cow can affect weaning, and that calf’s marbling ability.” A slide of a steer chasing men over a cliff demonstrated the importance of selecting for docility.

“We all know disposition is important from the family aspect,” McCully said. “They’re also hard to deal with, they’re hard on equipment and they produce a low-quality calf in the end.” Beyond marbling, McCully discussed options to improve beef tenderness. “While historically we’ve dealt with the issue through aging and other postmortem techniques, identifying and eliminating those problem genetics should be a goal for cattlemen,” he said, noting the ability to measure and select for tenderness will improve with new technology. Finally, McCully suggested being mindful of the size of cattle. “We do get a lot of questions about carcass size and ribeye area,” he said. He encouraged producers to establish benchmarks and measure progress, keeping records even after the sale. The market price shifts have more ranchers looking at retained ownership through the feedyard phase, but if that’s not a possibility, McCully said there’s no reason to waste any of the hard work and planning that went into their cattle. “A feeder usually gets a set of cattle and knows almost nothing about them,” he said. “There’s no owner’s manual with that set of cattle.” Such cattle are often capable of better, but can be mismanaged in the feedyard, simply for lack of information. To prevent that disconnect, McCully suggested ranchers and feeders work together. Those who sell should share health and genetic background, and those who buy should give feedback on performance and carcass merit. “Typically, with no background on the cattle, they are managed like the average,” he said. “What we should be doing in an efficient system is managing those cattle to their genetic ability. Do we take them a little bit farther, to maximize their marbling? Or at what point are we just wasting feed on those cattle that don’t have the ability to hit a high-quality target.” Missed opportunities only detract from profitability throughout the system.

“Cattlemen need to think about ramifications as we look further down the chain.” Showing steaks cut from different size ribeyes, he said.“The thinner steak from the bigger ribeye is probably harder to prepare to the perfect degree of doneness. Overcooking this steak jeopardizes the consumer’s experience. Not suggesting a switch to smaller animals, McCully simply said the concern calls for balance. “We have to have pounds for this to be a sustainable business. That’s ultimately what we’re selling,” he acknowledged. “All these things are important. But we have to make sure we’re not losing sight of the consumer’s eating satisfaction.”

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.

A Glass-Half-Full Perspective

A downturn in prices, feedlot closures, and general beef industry volatility are sure knocking the heck out of the excitement that was felt by the industry just a year and a half ago. Already the “Has-bins” and “Never-wasuns” are adding their two-cents worth saying, “I am sure glad I don’t have any cattle this year!” I am glad most of them didn’t have any cattle in 2015 either! Simple rule – don’t listen to them. Instead, focus your efforts on developing a plan for your herd based on numbers that you can make work and take some time to learn about opportunities for beef producers; especially, with a view to market predictions for the next few years. A check of the Province of Saskatchewan Weekly Cattle Market Update (based on the Canfax Market Outlook and Summary) shows the average price for a 500 - 600 pound steer April 10, 2015 was $327.17 ($/cwt); for the week ending October 14, 2016 it was $177.75 ($/cwt) – a decline of 46%. In gross dollars for a 550 pound steer that pencils out to $1799.44 in 2015 verses $977.62 this fall – a big difference. Can you still remain profitable? What influences your profitability? What can you do to improve profitability? A huge factor determining profitability is cost of production. For many of us feed is in abundant supply and cheaper than it has been for years. All thanks to Mother Nature and the basic market forces of supply and demand. A growing number of producers have already been cutting costs in recent years through extended grazing seasons and exploring cheaper ways to overwinter cows. Herd sizes have grown substantially over the last couple of decades with a view to increased efficiency gained through economy of scale. If you have paid too much for replacements a couple of years ago then it is going to take you longer to pay them off. Hopefully, their cost can be offset by less expensive replacements acquired before, or even after the boom. As I continually preach - it still makes sense to cull inefficient cows. The largest determinant of profitability is pounds of calf weaned per cow. Although the price decline for cull cows is 40% from spring 2015 to present a 150 pound lighter steer calf born 60 days later than the first calves will gross $763.32 (400 pounds @ 190.83/ cwt); a difference of $214.30 when compared with the 550 pound

steer used in the example above. However, both calves have essentially the same cost of production. In today’s market a 1300 pound cull fetching (D3 Live @ $79.25 cwt) $1030.25 will go a long way toward a purchasing a better replacement that hopefully has the potential to clear the inefficient cow deficit in just one year. Remember bred replacements will be cheaper too. All indications point to the bottom of this price cycle occurring in 2018 or 2019 so the forecast for “Betsy the Tail-ender” will not be improving any time soon. What about your marketing plan? With lots of feed around maybe backgrounding and finishing should be considered? I can’t predict what prices will look like in 2017, but with cheap feed maybe it is worth trying to put some extra pound on those calves. Market predictions I have looked at are favorable for creep feeding and backgrounding. In my opinion there has been no better time in recent years to retain good heifers! Their value is lower than it has been for some time and their first calves will not be hitting the market until the fall of 2018 with their best years occurring during the price incline of the next cycle. To date, cow-herd re-expansion has not occurred on a national scale largely stymied by uncertainty in the industry. These females will pay off in the future! Other ways to add value to your herd are to ensure that your calves are castrated, weaned appropriately and properly vaccinated. Sick cattle do not perform well with losses easily outweighing the costs of a vaccine program. There are a couple of different programs promoted by veterinary pharmaceutical companies that may interest you and could add value to your cattle – just ask your food animal veterinarian for details. Most of us will have to market some of our calves this fall. The bigger calves will bring more money while the cost of gain on the smaller calves is low enough in most circumstances to warrant keeping them for a while to put some pounds on. Take advantage of opportunities! I you have an overabundance of feed you may be able to purchase additional calves or custom background. Retaining ownership through all phases of production could also be in your future.

With more and more vaccines for livestock now being given subcutaneously, and vaccines using oil based adjuvants; reactions are not uncommon. The adjuvants used are designed to protect the vaccine, and give a much higher immune response. Reactions in the form of lumps are expected, albeit an undesirable result. As many of the pharmaceutical reps will tell us, at least we know the vaccine is working. This is true, and we must keep in mind that before, the same reaction was probably happening with the intramuscular products. The reaction just happened deep in the muscle where it was not visible to us. This is where a lot of the gristle (scarring in the muscle cuts of meat) would occur. So, from a beef quality assurance standpoint, there has been a huge improvement with almost all the vaccines going subcutaneous. Most of the lumps regress with time, or a small egg sized lump is left, which is a granuloma, or basically a lump of scar tissue. You will find more reactions with the bacterins like blackleg and the other killed vaccines, as they generally use the oil based adjuvant. The modified live vaccines generally use sterile water as the liquid for reconstitution, so the reaction is much milder. More reactions can occur if the nutritional status of the herd is low, especially the three trace minerals, which include copper, zinc and selenium. If there is a high percentage of large reactions happening within a herd, nutrition should be checked, as well as the producer’s administration technique. Dull, bent, dirty or burred needles increase the likelihood of introducing infection, or causing more trauma. This needs to be watched. Change needles when they are damaged, as well as after every ten animals or so. You can feel when they are getting dull, at that point of time change them. In my opinion, the steel, thick walled needles, with the cleaning wires should be outlawed, as they give the producer the impression they can be cleaned and reused. This should not happen. Proper technique will go a long way to minimize reactions. If you are seeing large swellings from vaccinations, that subsequently abscess, technique is definitely a possibility. I have seen some wrecks from vaccinating in the rain. The moisture seems to wash dirt into the needle hole, or the process itself takes in more dirt. Therefore try and avoid vaccinating in inclement weather. The infection starts after the vaccine is absorbed, so in all likelihood there has been a decent response. Keep the vaccine protected from the elements, as frozen or overheated vaccine will be ineffective and might be denatured leading to more vaccine abscesses. The egg sized reactions are of no concern to the animal, but are simply a blemish noticed more in Canada during the summer months when the hair is slicked off. Purebred show or display animals can be vaccinated in places like behind the elbow so if there is a reaction it won’t be noticed. I have never heard of these vaccine reactions being a problem on animals put in sales. The

argument could be that at least you can see that these particular stock are being vaccinated, and to me relates to good management. In the winter they become like a brand, and disappear under the hair. When slaughtered these lumps are somewhat adhered to the hide, and in almost all cases, come off with the hide not affecting the underlying meat in any way, so there are no trim losses. We all know if they were a concern, buyers would discount them on purchase, and that is not the case or at least I have never heard of it. A few other tricks are don’t vaccinate through manure, and if the multidose gun is hard to advance, you may be too shallow and giving the vaccine intradermal (between the skin layers). You want to definitely give the product subcutaneously (under the skin) and it should be very easy to inject. Use the smallest gauge needle that still allows you to inject it quickly (16-18 gauge). If the lumps get large (baseball size or larger) over time, they most likely are abscessed and may need to be lanced and flushed. To check technique if giving several vaccines, give them concisely in the same location leaving at least ten or so centimeters between. Give on opposite sides of the neck if possible. That way, if there are lumps you can assess which vaccine is involved, or who had given the vaccine. Sometimes twigging technique is all that is required. Behind the elbow is a good location to put vaccines for show cattle. Certain genetic lines of cattle are more reactive to a certain brand. This is most often because they are reacting to the adjuvant, or carrier of the vaccine. This is why certain producers will have a high incidence, and other farms have almost no reactions with the same vaccine. Cattle do not appear to get any more sensitive over time to repeated vaccinations, but if they have reacted once, they commonly will react again, so you may see several of these same reactions. If there becomes too many reactions to a vaccine, you may need to change brands or perhaps, it is that specific combination that is the problem. In horses we often split the vaccines up, and give over time but that is not really a practical solution for our large herds of cattle. Please accept a few vaccine reactions as a normal occurrence, and investigate with your veterinarian if the incidence gets too high, or if abscesses are created. Rest assured the vaccine is working and offering protection. Very, very rarely just like with antibiotics, we can get allergic reactions with vaccinating so always have epinephrine on hand anytime you are processing. This is why it is always good to check your cattle a short time after vaccination for any heavy breathing or swollen faces. Allergic reactions if severe occur within fifteen minutes of vaccinating. The future may see needleless vaccination or oral or intranasal vaccines given which do eliminate this lump issue.

Canadian Angus Foundation Announces Junior Stockman Award Winner August 3, 2016: for immediate release Rocky View County, AB - From the time Maguire Blair could walk, he has been involved in the feeding, preparation and marketing of his family’s Angus and Simmental cattle. That involvement has earned him the 2016 Junior Angus Stockman Award. In addition to involvement with Blair’s West Land & Cattle, his family’s operation near Drake, Saskatchewan, Blair has developed his own herd of purebred Angus cattle. He makes all the breeding decisions for his females, and has been slowly expanding his herd through female purchases and embryo transfer. He also plays junior hockey with the Prince Albert Mintos. Blair’s future plans include attending Lakeland College in Vermilion majoring in animal science and crop technology. Blair has been very active through 4-H and junior programs and attends 10-12 shows each year across western Canada. He has earned many awards for his skills in grooming and showmanship and has also exhibited high quality breeding stock. This past year, Blair’s cow Bar-E-L Erica 74A was the most dominant show female in Canada. Blair and Erica dominated every show attended including winning championships at Showdown, Lloydminster Stockade National Angus show, Brandon Ag Ex, Farmfair and Agribition. Erica was named Canadian Angus Gold Show Female of the Year and also won the international “Show Female of the Year” from AngusBreeder.net. The Junior Angus Stockman of the Year Award is a recent initiative of the Canadian Angus Foundation. This award was introduced last year to recognize those outstanding young cattlemen who are constantly growing their stockmanship capability by actively working with their Angus cattle. Blair received the award at the Canadian Junior Angus Association Showdown banquet Saturday night in Truro, NS. The Canadian Angus Foundation was incorporated in 1993 and is the charitable arm of the Canadian Angus Association.

Bob Switzer to be Inducted into Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame July 28, 2016: for immediate release ROCKY VIEW COUNTY, AB - Canadian Angus Association Past President Bob Switzer will be inducted into the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame this fall. In 1966 Switzer purchased his first registered Angus from the Corydon dispersal at Elbow, Saskatchewan, eventually leading to the establishment of Sandy Bar Ranch at Aneroid. He served as CAA President in 2008 and as Canadian Angus Foundation Chair in 2009. Switzer was instrumental in organizing the first Angus and Angus influenced feeder calf sale in Moose Jaw, which led to sales in Assiniboia, Maple Creek, Mankota, Medicine Hat and in subsequent years, throughout Canada. He helped form Red Coat Cattle Feeders in 1998 to feed cattle and employ local people to stop the outflow of cattle, grain and people from the region. The Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame also named Canadian Western Agribition Past President John Willmott and crop protection pioneer James Bartlett as 2016 inductees. Canadian Angus CEO Rob Smith says, “Bob has been a huge promoter of Canadian Angus and the feeder calf sale program in particular. Bob Switzer and Sandy Bar Angus are important contributors to Canadian Angus history. We are thrilled to have two Canadian Angus Past Presidents inducted into the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame. Bob served in 2008 and John served in 1970 and 1985.” Herb McLane, President of the Canadian Agriculture Hall of Fame Association noted, “This year’s three inductees all channeled their passion, whether for horticulture, beef cattle or industry organizations, into advances and opportunities to make agriculture matter even more. They dreamed big, advocated tirelessly and have left indelible marks on the Canadian agricultural landscape.” The induction ceremony will take place on November 6 at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair in Toronto. The Canadian Angus Association (www.cdnangus.ca) is Canada’s largest purebred beef breed organization, registering more than 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 HerdBook 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 Junior Angus Association Presents 2016 Scholarships Totalling $4,500 July 28, 2016: for immediate release Truro, NS - The Canadian Junior Angus Association presented three young women with scholarships this morning. Michaela Chalmers of Ontario received the first-place scholarship of $2,000; Melanie Wood of PEI received the second-place scholarship of $1,500; and Rebecca Redner of Ontario received the third-place scholarship of $1,000. The scholarships were presented at Showdown, the annual national Canadian Junior Angus show. Michaela Chalmers was recently named the 2016 Robert C. McHaffie Junior Ambassador. She is enrolled in the University of Guelph Animal Biology program working toward an Honours Bachelor of Science and has been directly involved in her family operation JPD Angus, exhibiting cattle at shows across Canada. She has been a 4-H member and served as president of the Ontario Junior Angus Association. She currently sits as a director with the Canadian Junior Angus Association and helped organize the 2016 Guiding Outstanding Angus Leaders conference. Melanie Wood is studying plant science at Dalhousie University in the faculty of agriculture. She hopes to become a certified crop advisor and work with both farmers and organizations upon graduation. She has been involved in 4-H, the Maritime Junior Angus Association and Canadian Junior Angus Association as well as volunteering in her local community. As well, Wood has played varsity volleyball and varsity rugby for the Dalhousie Rams. Rebecca Redner will begin her post-secondary studies in food and agricultural business at the University of Guelph this fall. She was introduced to the beef cattle industry four years ago after being raised with dairy cattle and has been involved with 4-H throughout her youth. Redner has volunteered with her local cattlemen association, serving beef at the annual Surf n Turf day at the Trenton Air Base and with a long-term care home. She also plays many sports including soccer, basketball and curling. Showdown began in 2000 as an outlet for Juniors from across the nation to gather in one location to exhibit their Angus cattle in conformation divisions. There have been many different activities and contests added over the years, with print marketing, sales talk, judging, team judging, team grooming, photography, literature, art, scrapbooking, graphic design, farm sign, public speaking, Angus cook-off, Spirit of Angus youth and grand aggregate as the current competitions. The Canadian Junior Angus Association (CJAA) is the national association for Angus youth up to age 21. The CJAA’s goal is to help prepare future cattlemen for the beef industry by educating and informing Juniors about the Angus industry.

Sustainability in the Beef Supply Chain Needs Engaged Producers

Producers are sometimes the last to be consulted on sustainability. The good news is Canadian farmers and ranchers that raise cattle are, for the most part, operating in a sustainable and responsible manner. Our industry was able to assist McDonald’s in delivering on a global commitment they made several years ago to begin sourcing their beef from verified sustainable operations in 2016. It will not end here, they plan to continue on this path globally. As producers we need to understand that McDonald’s Canada is the largest purchaser of Canadian beef, 67 million pounds annually, and is committed to sourcing Canadian beef – they are serious when they say “Not without Canadian Farmers”. Of the $1 billion they spend on food for their Canadian restaurants 85 percent is purchased from suppliers in Canada.

more with less,” “constant improvement,” “transparency in the value chain” and “willingness to collaborate.” The challenge is identifying, developing, and validating metrics to measure progress across the three global pillars of sustainability: social, environmental, and financial.

The Canadian beef industry was fortunate to have McDonald’s choose our country for the Verified Sustainable Beef Pilot Project. Prior to starting, their project management team (PMT) went through 150+ versions of the indicators that would demonstrate sustainability, ultimately arriving at 36 indicators that looked at what was good for people, planet and animals. Then the PMT went looking for producers that would put up their hands to be part of the pilot project, which meant having a group come to your farm, ranch or feedlot and ask you about your production practices, the care of your animals, the stewardship of your land, environmental awareness, your employment practices, family and community involvement. There was no pass or fail but a scoring system from one to five, with the average being three. There were minimum acceptable levels for each indicator which could create a barrier to entry in the pilot project. The indicators used were derived from the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef www.grsbeef. org and adjusted to suit Canada’s environment, animals, people and practices, as each global geographic area has different challenges.

Today there are over 7 billion people with a vested interest in food on the planet and they don’t agree on much, especially not science. But one thing everyone at the forum agreed on was the importance of collaboration in order to achieve anything at all. BIXSco Inc. has always held collaboration as one of its core values.

How can sustainability be achieved in a way that makes business sense? Some of the key statements around sustainability that stick in my mind would be “doing

Not long ago the Irish Food Board brought together hundreds of sustainability professionals to discuss ways to increase production and consumption of food and drink sustainably. The Global Sustainability Forum dealt with complex topics such as harmonising metrics for measuring sustainability targets, the importance of collaboration, responsible sourcing, ethical supply chains, food waste, sustainable intensification, and even what sustainability in the food supply chain looks like.

BIXSco Inc. has been a member of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) for a year now, and I have been part of the multi-stakeholder group discussions around the Canadian Beef Industry. It has given me the chance to meet sustainability managers from many of the largest retailers in Canada, sit with representatives from major restaurant chains and have open and frank discussions with them. Even though I attend these meetings as a BIXS representative, my producer alter ego is never far away, which I believe has given me a unique perspective of the processes the CRSB has gone through creating indicators unique to Canada, that are acceptable to our customers – the retailers and restauranteurs. Every step along the way has included representatives from each part of the production chain – cow/calf and feedlot, as well as the value chain. What has become apparent is the need for collaboration in order to avoid the cost of sustainable practices falling

solely on cattle producers, and to help consumers buy ethically-which means what they are purchasing was raised on an operation that was not harmful to the planet and the animals were treated well, while being safe for their families to eat. Retailers need to reassure their customers that they source with integrity. Consumers don’t want to decipher confusing labeling, they want proof points ... At the moment it’s too difficult for them to understand because of the plethora of marketing initiatives and programs; and misalignment between them. The CRSB members want a supply chain that’s fit for the future and works in a way that reduces the difficulty for busy farmers, ranchers and feedlot owners to participate. The farmers and ranchers feel they are often the last to be consulted on sustainability and worry about the strain or demand on them to do more without getting more. We all must be part of the sustainability conversation but it must be economically sustainable as well. The primary producer must get a fair price for the product. This topic has been brought up many times in discussions at the CRSB meetings. I have served as an industry adviser to the Verification committee, which is a sizable group of stakeholders (producer groups and producers included), which is in the process of defining how the industry will verify or validate the sustainability practices, as defined by the indicators that have gone through the public comment periods and been agreed upon. So just how can the supply chain be more sustainable without one partner feeling they are shouldering the heaviest burden? Collaboration and transparency are key to sustainability, it has to benefit the entire chain right down to the consumer. We need to get all parties around the table, including policymakers to cement agreements. This is what BIXS has been working towards for the last 18 months signing collaborative agreements with industry stakeholders, most notable of which is the master agreement with Cargill, while continuing negotiations with other packers. BIXS was the technology that delivered the chain of custody for the McDonald’s

Verified Sustainable Beef pilot project – tracking the animals/beef through verified sustainable operations “from birth to burger”, to quote Jeffery Fitzpatrick Stillwell, Sustainability Manager with McDonald’s Canada. And yes, in case you were wondering, Cargill and JBS, as well as the patty plant were subjected to a sustainability assessment as well as the farms, ranches and feedlots in the pilot project. One key to intensifying sustainability was knowledge intensification, and in order for that to happen there has to be benefits for the producer. We know you all want carcass data, that’s a simple fact, and we continue to work towards agreements that will allow that information to flow. But just as BIXS protects the producers’ privacy, until we get another signed agreement with a major packer, we cannot allow Cargill’s information into the system as their privacy would be compromised. BIXS promises privacy and anonymity to all participants, allowing the data to flow as permitted. We are well down the negotiating path with several additional packers so stay tuned. More importantly, my comment to producers is this, “perhaps it is wise to consider that if we participate in this sustainability initiative, in years to come, we will have consumers that want to purchase and eat our product.” Per capita beef consumption dropped in Canada in 2015, but there are countries in the world where beef consumption is rising on a per capita basis. China would be one of those countries, but they are demanding verification and validation of production practices in the beef value chain. With tools like BIXS and CLTS (Canadian Livestock Traceability System), and RFID tags we have everything necessary to deliver verification and validation in the beef production chain. Wrap this up with verified sustainability practices and we have a bright future in the Canadian beef industry, with the possibility of being able to demand prices higher than those currently being paid for commodity beef on the world market.
