As I sit down to write this, the sun is shining and there is a little less bite in the air... is spring finally here? Everyone is hopeful that it finally is, after what seemed to be a long winter, with many areas having early snow and a challenging fall, moving into a cold winter and a cool April. I think most areas have had lots of moisture and just need to see some heat, to make the green grass grow. Spring is an exciting time of year as the new crop of calves run out in the field and things begin to turn green and grow! In the agricultural world, spring is basically the start of a new year and brings promise of a successful growing season. For those of us involved in the livestock industry, we have a great deal to be excited about . A t this point grass and forage look like they have a great start and even more exciting is the feeder market. Over the past six weeks or so, the cattle market has continued to strengthen with week over week increases (caused by strong packer demand as we head into barbecue season), resulting in Alberta fed cattle setting a record for 2017 last week. Butcher cows and bulls are also on the same trend, making it a good time to clean house before turning your cattle out to grass. The good thing is... this has been a moderate paced rise to levels all cattlemen should profit by and be very happy with. It should be a sustainable increase, versus the explosive increases seen in 2015, meaning a stronger fall market in 2017 over 2016. Spring is also the time of year when we ourselves and purebred breeders have a chance to sit back and analyze the spring bull sale season. Over all it was better than I expected; however we did see some trends in demand this year, the most noticeable being birth weight. Whether you agree with it or not... your commercial customers are demanding less birth weight. So the challenge for you as breeders is to source and identify genetics with consistent low birth weights and still maintain as much performance as you can. The customer demands it; many breeders are quick to say “well you can’t have both.”

However, we do have bulls who can do both, so we need to utilize those who can and identify more who have the same ability; we have not utilized them to their full potential as yet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that what they are asking... is totally right; back on our own farm we wanted 100 pound birth weight bulls on our commercial cows. However more and more customers are asking for more moderation in birth weight and there is an old saying in business, “the customer is always right.” I often get asked “why is that guy’s sale better than mine... my bulls are better than his!” well, most of the time it comes down to customer service. You have heard me talk about it before, for many it is easy to talk about customer service but hard to follow through on. For most it means stepping out of one’s comfort zone and that is not a place we like to be. For the most part, the best bull sales happen to the best salesman, the one who can put on the customer service hat and do a good job of managing that department too. Often it is easy to say I’m just too busy to follow up with all my bull buyers or no news is good news. If you look at the consistently enviable sales, they have three things in common: 1. A good product 2. A strong marketing campaign 3. A customer service program that involves someone putting a lot of miles on a pickup truck or somebody spending significant time in the office on the phone or more likely a combination of both Food for thought while it is all fresh in our minds... enjoy the beauty of spring!

Both directors will serve three-year terms. Baxter and McLean will assume their duties immediately following the close of the 111th annual general meeting of the Canadian Angus Association, which takes place on Saturday, June 10 in Brandon, MB. George Baxter will replace Doug Reid, who operates Reid Angus at Cochrane, AB with his wife Kate and family. Reid has been involved in the purebred Angus business since 1993 and was elected to the board in 2014. Prior to joining the national board, Reid served for six years on the Alberta Angus Association board of directors. He chaired the Alberta bid committee for the 2009 World Angus Forum and also served as a volunteer preparing for and during the event. He has substantial international marketing experience, visiting every continent and every cattle producing country while working as a sales representative. Baxter and his wife Laura operate Count Ridge Red Angus near Bassano, AB. Baxter’s purebred herd started in 1974 and was a continuation of his father Andrew’s herd. Count Ridge Red Angus has grown to approximately 200 purebred Red Angus cattle and 100 Red Angus-influenced commercial cattle today. In addition to his cattle, Baxter has been involved in his community serving as a director on the local school board, and in various other positions with 4-H clubs and the Rural Electrification Association.

Ribey’s father Gary Harron served as President in 1996. They are the only father and daughter to both serve as President of the Canadian Angus Association. Ribey will be Chair of the third Canadian Beef Industry Conference when it moves to Ontario in August 2018. McLean and his brother Murray operate a purebred Angus cow herd, Melmac Angus Farms near Melbourne, Ontario with 35 cows. Their father Ron started the herd in 1974. They also grow corn and soybeans.

Canadian Angus Association President Also Calgary Stampede President March 23, 2017: for immediate release Rocky View County, AB-The Canadian Angus Association congratulates and recognizes our President David Sibbald for his newest roles. At the Calgary Stampede annual general meeting Tuesday night, David became President and Chairman of the Board. He will continue in his role as Canadian Angus Association President until the conclusion of the annual general meeting on Saturday, June 10 in Brandon, MB. David will serve as Calgary Stampede President until 2019. David, his wife Mary Beth and sons Dylan and Adam operate SSS Red Angus.

David was elected to the Canadian Angus Association Board in 2013 and the Calgary Stampede Board in 2009. “I am proud and humbled to be leading two of the largest organizations in Canada,” says David. “I am passionate about and visionary toward Angus, agri-business, rural values and volunteerism. The Calgary Stampede and Canadian Angus Association are both internationally respected organizations with great staff and volunteers and it is exciting that my terms overlap for two and a half months.” Yesterday, David was also elected to the Canadian Beef Breeds Council (CBBC) Board of Directors for a two-year term. CBBC provides a unified voice in support of the purebred genetics provided within the Canadian beef cattle industry.

The Supper Club

Shorty had met the old man that lived at the end of the road several times, in fact he made a point of stoppin’ in on his way home to have a coffee with the old bachelor farmer whenever he could. He enjoyed the old fella’s stories, even though very few of them were true and yet he knew very little about the old man’s history other than that his name was Leon. So it was that Shorty stopped in to see the old man one late summer evening. He thought he would say hello, and see how the old guy was doing. He was greeted at the door of the old, unkempt and rather decrepit looking house by a smiling Leon.

“Okay... throw some sugar in it for me.” Leon smiled and scooped two heaping spoons of sugar into Shorty’s cup and slid the cup and a spoon across the table to Shorty. “Ya might want to stir that.” Leon nodded towards the light green cup. “The city folks complain about my coffee… say it’s too strong. Wimps…” Leon voice trailed off. “Hey Leon… you ever been married?” Shorty figured it was fair game, Leon had brought up women as part of his Betsy comment.

“Good to see ya Shorty… got time for a coffee?” “Wouldn’t be here if I didn’t.” “Well then, tie that nag up and I’ll warm it up.” Leon turned and walked into the house. Shorty watched the short, stout farmer disappear into the house. It occurred to him that he had never seen Leon in anything other than a white tee shirt, suspenders and jeans in the summer, and denim bib overalls, white undershirt and plaid long sleeved shirt in the winter. He had seen Leon in town once a couple of years ago and he was dressed the same way then. Shorty smiled to himself as he walked to the house. “What do take in your brew Shorty? I ain’t got cream, but I could catch old Betsy and squeeze out some fresh stuff.” Leon nodded towards the old barn. Shorty turned and looked out at an old Holstein cow that looked as though she was listening. Betsy turned and started to walk away. Leon smiled. “Just like every woman I ever met.” “Naw black’s good.” “Ya might try some sugar Shorty, I made this…” Leon paused and glanced at Shorty to make sure he was listening, “well I think it was yesterday… might have been the night before.”

“Nope,” Leon replied. He was sitting across the table now, his suspenders hanging like stirrups from his waist and his huge dirty hands cradling the cup of black, unsweetened coffee. “How come?” “Never wanted to make the same mistake once,” Leon replied without any hesitation and dead straight faced. Shorty smiled. The matter of fact answer was betrayed by a twinkle in the old man’s eye. “Have you lived up here all your life?” “So far,” Leon was smiling now. “ I’ve been alone since my parents passed away... they’ve been gone for twenty some years now.” “You got any family?” “Ya… I got a sister and a couple brothers back on the coast… and they all got a few kids, so there are some nieces and nephews out there as well. I don’t see them much, I guess the road don’t go both ways to the coast…” Leon’s voice trailed off again, but this time it had just a hint of sadness in it.

“Hey Shorty… ya want to stay for supper? I haven’t ate yet, and I am a pretty good cook.” Leon was standing now and rubbing his ample girth with his left hand. “ I got some steak in the fridge and fresh spuds and carrots from the garden.” Leon was smiling now, as if he knew that Shorty was going to stay. “Sure, why not? What can I do to help?” Leon was half way out the door. “Start the barbeque.” He nodded towards an old propane barbeque just outside the door. “I am gonna dig some spuds and pull some carrots… I’ll be right back.” Shorty was just finishing cleaning the grill when Leon came around the corner of the house, the bottom of his tee shirt serving as a carrying device. He dumped the freshly dug produce on the ground, and used a green garden hose to wash them off. Shorty tended to the meat while Leon cooked up the potatoes and carrots in the old kitchen. When Shorty came in with the meat, Leon had supper on the table. The two of them ate supper, had a couple beers and Leon even served up a bowl of ice cream for dessert. “Hey Leon… thanks for supper. I’ll help with the dishes and then I better get goin’, it’ll be dark soon.” Shorty pushed back from the table. He got up and carried his dishes to the counter near the sink. “You’re welcome Shorty, it was nice to have the company. Hey… don’t worry about the dishes, I’ll get ‘em,” Leon was standing at the sink and grinning at Shorty.

“Ya sure Leon… I could help” “Nah… I got it. You better get goin’, I am good at the dish thing, been doin’ them for years.” “Okay Leon,” Shorty turned back to the table to get his hat, then back to the sink to say his goodbye. Leon was standing there at the sink, his tee shirt had been stripped from his back and now was being used to wipe off the dishes before Leon placed them into the cupboard from which they had been taken an hour or so before. The sink was dry as a bone. Shorty stared at the half naked old man, in dirty blue jeans, with an even dirtier tee shirt wiping off the dishes with as straight a face as Shorty had ever seen, and putting the dishes back up in the cupboard. “See ya Shorty. Hey come back for supper again will ya?” “Uhhh sure Leon,” Shorty turned and walked out the door to his horse, swung into the saddle and headed down the drive towards home. He only glanced back once, and saw the old bachelor walking across the yard, his shirt back on, with an old milk pail in his hand. Betsy was walking in the opposite direction. Shorty was never sure whether or not the old man ever pulled the dishes out of the cupboard and washed them properly, nor did he ever ask, but he never stayed for any meals again. He did, however, stop for coffee every now and then… he just rinsed the cup out before he used it.

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.”

Anice is friendly and has a great sense of humour--I encourage Canadian Angus members to take the time to welcome her to our Angus fraternity,” says Devani. On Thomas joining the Canadian Angus team, CEO Rob Smith said, “Having Anice join us adds the final critical component of analytical research and development to maximize our genetic selection tools within our member services portfolio. Kajal and Anice will increase Canadian Angus member value through scientific advancement which will also have global benefit. I’m extremely proud and excited to have Anice Thomas add her considerable experience and talent to Canadian Angus.” The Canadian Angus Association (www.cdnangus.ca) is Canada’s largest purebred beef breed organization.

Today’s Angus Advantage  31


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 in within a herd, nutrition should be checked, as well as the producer’s administration technique.

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.

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, and then 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

If he was going to put his name on it, it was going to be the best. And so, the bold, orange all-caps lettering of his first name stands several feet tall over the Winnipeg, MB, shop’s simple brick façade. It’s like a proud banner, branding the building as his own – Marcello Castellano’s dream shop: Marcello’s Meats. Inside, it’s a bit of a maze, where its 900-square feet are bursting at the seams and stacked to the ceiling with specialty foods with gourmet flair and European and ethnic specialties. Following each aisle is a delight to those who love food for more than just sustenance – as one of his customers noted in an online review, “You know that old saying,‘Like a kid in a candy store.’ That’s pretty bang on with Marcello’s. Except you’re an adult, in a store filled with so many varieties and specialty meats that you can spend a good hour or so just checking things out.” Of course, the shop regulars – about 1,000 each week – beeline to the main attraction beyond the enamoring grocery shelves, where two full walls are enclosed with vivid, meticulously arranged meat cases. That’s where you’ll find the shop’s namesake most days. “When I first opened up, these shelves stopped here,” Castellano points through the store from behind the meat counter where, close to eight years ago, there once was an aisle you might have been able to navigate. “Then I increased and I added more, and more and kept adding on – people kept coming in and saying, ‘hey, can you get this?’ I’d say, come in next week and I’ll have it. I just can’t say no.” He laughs and shrugs. What can he say? The customer knows what they want, and he wants to provide the best – “So we just keep stacking it a little higher.” He also knows what typically brings them in the door to start – the latter half of that bold, orange ‘Marcello’s Meats’ lettering. “When I decided to open up this place, I wanted to be different than everybody else,” he says. The meat case would be what made the difference. He met with a sales rep for local To-Le-Do Foodservice a few years before, who offered a frozen Certified Angus Beef® (CAB®) brand strip steak.

“I was supposed to ‘just try it, and see how it does.’ I take home this frozen steak, pull it out, don’t put any seasoning on it – nothing – and it’s the best steak I ever had in my life.” Castellano grabs a cherry-red, perfectly cut steak out of the case below and holds it out for admiration. “So when I opened this store, I wanted to go 100%. Nothing but this. I’m putting my name on the building, so I want people to say, that was the best steak I’ve ever had,” he says. “The rest is history.” Indeed, his was the first store in Winnipeg to offer 100% Certified Angus Beef in the meat case. “People may be cutting down on eating beef a little bit, but when they eat it, they want to eat a good, quality cut. They know what they’re getting here, every single time,” he says. “It’s the consistency, to make sure that it’s always the same high quality they expect.” That’s what he’s willing to hang his hat on, but he has to count on Canada’s ranchers to provide it. He works in a business with tight margins, too. Regardless of price, he knows the quality has to deliver every single time to stay in business through market highs and lows. “I know it does happen when the margin isn’t just as high or whatever, and I understand that. But you have to keep it consistent,” he says. Ranchers who market their cattle on a value-based grid can see premiums for the carcass quality that helps Castellano sell beef that hits the CABbrand quality specifications seven days a week. In fact, recent market analysis notes that highquality cattle achieving 90% AAA and 30% CAB acceptance rates start to pay premiums on a grid even when the ChoiceSelect (AAA/AA) spread is as narrow as $3.30/cwt. Similarly, in the shop, Castellano sees a premium for offering consistent quality. “Customers, they don’t mind spending money for good, quality products,” he says. And once they’re a discerning beef eater, they’ll never want to go back to commodity, he laughs. The shop used to be open six days a week, with a break on Sundays. “I’d have customers come in on Monday and say, ‘oh, you were closed yesterday so I went across the street and bought a steak. Never again, never again! Why aren’t you open on Sundays?!’”

Today’s Angus Advantage  34


So now, it’s seven days a week, and the steaks have to deliver on quality every one of them. “Beef prices are high – but I tell them, you can go and spend a few dollars less and go buy a steak across the street, but you don’t know if it’s going to be good. There you spend a little bit less and get poor quality, where here you’re guaranteed.” That guarantee comes from the product quality and their dedication to customer service – two components that have to go hand-in-hand consistently. With photos of ranch landscapes and the CAB® brand logo proudly displayed behind the meat counter, he’s quick to point out exactly who deserves the credit for the first part of that equation: the ranchers who raise it. And yet, like his towering shelves, there’s always room for more. In the United States, recent demand studies from the University of Missouri project less Select (equivalent to AA) demand each year to 2020, while more Prime, CAB® and Choice (AAA) will find steadily growing demand. Like most of the grocery products he offers, Marcello knows quality has to start at the source.

than just 8%,” he says, pointing to the long-held percentage of all Canadian cattle that are Angus-type and meet those CAB quality specifications. On the other hand, the share of commercial Angus that qualify for CAB in Canada is setting records, making 24% acceptance last year, with room to grow. Angus ranchers who target high-marbling genetics can be proud of the cattle they put a brand on, and that goes on to a Manitoba meat shop where Marcello is proud to hang his name on it, all the way to the customer who’s proud of what they put on their table. “With this grade and brand of beef, anybody can do it,” the meat expert says.“When I first opened up, I remember one guy came in and said, ‘For years, I don’t know what I’m doing. I can’t make anything proper until you opened up.’” Of course, Marcello knows it’s the marbling that makes the chef: “He never had the quality. So yeah, the Angus ranchers, they should be proud – they should be very proud of the product they produce,” he says. “A lot of people really appreciate it.”

“There’s a lot of Angus beef out there, but we need to get more producers working with their seedstock guys to improve those genetics to qualify for CAB. It’d be nice if you got more

Ergot and fungal mycotoxins

The effects of ergot and fungal mycotoxins on cattle is a hot topic in western Canada. Veterinarians and feed reps are busy fielding calls and assessing toxin levels in feed samples. I have been involved in assessing the effects on reproductive performance. This article will focus on ergot, my next one will cover mycotoxins. I hope I can answer a few questions. Ergot is certainly not a new disease with reports of its effects in both humans and animals extending back to the middle ages. Cool wet conditions during the growing season increase the likelihood that the fungus, Claviceps purpurea, will infect cereal grains and grasses. Ergot appears as dark brown, black or purple bodies protruding from the grain head and are easily identified in unprocessed grain samples. These bodies represent the overwintering stage of the fungal lifecycle and are typically much larger than a kernel of grain. Despite being shaped like a grain kernel the entire ergot body is fungal in origin that has been formed in place of the grain. Some types of grasses may also become infected, however, ergot infection is less obvious appearing as small, dark and slender bodies. Cool wet conditions in the spring promote the germination of the ergot bodies whose spores may then be spread through the air to land on flowering cereals and grasses. Ergot bodies usually do not survive for more than one winter in the soil and can be destroyed if cultivated to more than 4 cm below the soil surface. Crops become infected from previous cereal crops, or from spores blowing in from adjacent cereal crops or grasslands; hence, the reason that ergot tends to be more prevalent in grain harvested from the outside rounds. (Source – Ergot of Cereals and Grasses, https://www.saskatchewan.ca/ ). Cereals and grasses vary in their susceptibility to ergot. Rye, followed by wheat, barley and triticale are much more susceptible than oats. Many commonly grown grasses are at risk including brome grass, wheat grasses, rye grass, orchard grass, blue grass, fescues and quack grass. Intensive grazing or mowing to prevent grasses from heading outare good practices to prevent or control ergot in grasses. Ergot bodies contain potent alkaloids that are essentially toxic chemicals on par with any synthetic agent that could be produced in a modern laboratory. If sufficient quantities are consumed, two types of conditions may appear in affected animals. The most common is the gangrenous type – blood vessels become constricted limiting blood flow to the body’s extremities which will eventually cause the tissues to die. Hind limb soreness is the first sign – lameness, stiffness, and reluctance to get up and move appear first. Loss of sensation followed by sloughing of tissues for which there is no recovery occur last. During cold weather blood flow is naturally limited to the extremities which will worsen the effects of ergot. Sloughing of the hooves at the coronary band and loss of the tail and ears occur most commonly during Today’s Angus Advantage  36

cold weather, but have also been seen during the summer. Sores on teats and sloughing of teats has been seen in cows. In the US Midwest, ergot is the cause if “summer slump” - rough haircoats, weight loss and standing in the shade or water. Vasoconstriction impairs the animal’s ability to cool off effectively reducing their tolerance for heat. Hyperexcitability and tremors are associated with the less common, nervous, form of ergot poisoning. Convulsions and even paralysis are rarely observed in cattle. The central nervous system signs may stem from restricted blood flow to parts of the brain or the direct effect of the toxins. Ergot alkaloids have anti-prolactin effects which lowers the amount of prolactin hormone in the body. Prolactin is required for udder development and milk production in cattle; therefore, reduced milk production or complete suppression of milk production may occur. Gestating cows may not develop an udder. Abortion in cattle has also been linked to ergot. A number of abortions occurred in cattle 7 to 10 days following introduction to a heavily contaminated rye grass pasture with the cause being attributed to ergot. Ergot alkaloids are incredibly potent toxins. Higher levels of intake are associated with an onset of signs occurring within several days; lower levels may require several weeks. In most situations time to occurrence of clinical signs is 4 to 6 weeks. For example, total dietary levels between 0.3% and 1.0% of the diet resulted in gangrenous disease when fed for several weeks. Levels between 0.1% and 0.3% (100 to 300 parts per billion) can even cause symptoms of poisoning. Moist growing conditions have increased the risk of ergot contamination in recent years. Pelleted rations made from screenings have been one source of poisoning leading to increased scrutiny when buying grain by livestock feed processors. Home grown feeds and pastures can also be contaminated and have resulted in some devastating losses. Direct effects of ergot on reproductive performance in cattle are not well documented. Even the link between ergot and abortion is not 100 percent conclusive. There are some reports suggesting that ergot may decrease sperm motility and increase the proportion of sperm defects in semen; however, any direct effects were not evident. Many things can influence sperm motility and morphology. Changes in diet are as likely to cause variations in semen quality as great as those suggested to be caused by ergot. At best, prolactin plays a minor role in ovarian or testicular function in cattle so it is not likely to be involved. New directed research is likely to shed light on the effects of ergot on reproductive performance, but until then it is my opinion that any negative effects are secondary to stress and illness associated with the vasoconstrictive effect.
