Appreciative...

would best describe how we felt following another very successful sale. There were bulls available for every application and both seedstock producer and commercial rancher were there to take advantage of the offering. Once again sons of Titlest proved to be in great demand and so also were the first offspring of Bar-H Crossfire 63A and Glenfield 2141. We say thank you to each and every person that made this event possible and especially to all the folks that took the time throughout the year to check out our breeding program. We love this business and we enjoy serving you as suppliers of high quality seedstock.

NOT TAKEN FOR GRANTED Golf

Shorty had never considered himself much of an athlete, even though he was pretty handy in the disciplines of rodeo. He had never really thought of rodeo as an athletic activity and had received a lot of flak from his peers for his views on their chosen sport. Shorty figured that most of the credit for any rodeo cowboy’s success belonged to the horses, they, he pointed out to anyone that argues with him, were the real athletes in rodeo.

It really wasn’t a question. “What?” Shorty looked down at his fresh blue jeans and his nice clean, long sleeved, snapped shirt.

Shorty’s thoughts of his athletic prowess on this day, however, had nothing to do with rodeo, but had everything to do with golf.

Shorty ate his breakfast as slowly as possible, got up and put the dishes in the dishwasher, stalled as long as possible, then made his way back to the bedroom.

“Well Shorty, what do you think? Do you want to go or not?”

“Shorty….you will cook in a long sleeved shirt, here put on this shirt my Mom gave you.” Shorty’s wife tossed an orange golf shirt at him. Now Shorty wasn’t a short sleeved kind of a guy…..in fact he had never even worn this shirt before. He reluctantly removed his choice of shirts and replaced it with his wife’s choice. He turned to his wife, just in time to catch a pair of khaki shorts that she tossed in his direction.

Shorty looked at his boss, his dreams of athletic prowess, disappeared. “I’m really not much of a golfer…..” he stammered. “When is this thing?” His boss seemed to be losing his patience with his cowboy. “This thing is the Cattleman’s Golf Tournament and it is on Tuesday at Pine Point.” “Pine Point?” “Yeah….Pine Point. You in or not?” “Ah sure…I guess so. I am really not very good, in fact I haven’t golfed since high school.” His boss smiled, “That’s okay Shorty….it is best ball and I hate golf, so you are in. It starts at 10 AM, you are all paid up and they will put you in a foursome when you get there so don’t be late.” Shorty had to find his clubs. He had inherited a set from his dad years ago and he could clearly remember his wife asking him if she could throw them out each and every time they had moved. He found them, in a faded, dusty, plaid vinyl golf bag in the far corner of the furnace room and suddenly it occurred to him that perhaps he was in a wee bit over his head. Tuesday dawned clear and warm. Shorty hadn’t given golf attire much thought up until his wife greeted him at the breakfast table with, “You are not wearing that.”

“Shorty….they don’t even allow blue jeans on golf courses. Everybody knows that.” Everybody but Shorty. “What am I going to wear?” “Just eat, I will find something.”

“Are you sure about the blue jeans thing?” She didn’t dignify that question with a response, outside of an icy stare. Shorty knew when to quit. He pulled on the shorts and turned to look at himself in the bedroom mirror. There he was, his skinny white arms sticking out of the orange shirt and his equally skinny legs sticking out of the shorts. Shorty noticed two things, one that his legs made the shorts look really dark coloured and that at the end of his arms were two nicely tanned hands. “I look really stupid.” Shorty watched in the mirror as his wife joined him. She was smiling. “I would say that your arms and legs look like toothpicks, nice white toothpicks,” she started, ”but that would be an insult…..to toothpicks everywhere.” “Thanks for the support.” “Shorty….once the others see your complete lack of ability on the golf course, they will completely forget about the outfit……I promise.”

Shorty arrived at Pine Point later than most of the other participants. In fact he was being paged as he made his away across the parking lot. He was greeted at the club house by the remainder of his foursome, his local vet and his wife and a pharmaceutical salesman named Jim. “Are those really your clubs?” Shorty turned to the voice, it was Jim. “Yeah…wait til you see me golf.” Shorty joined Jim in a cart and the foursome headed out to their starting hole. Shorty watched the scenery pass him by and it occurred to him that, with proper fencing this would make a hell of a pasture. There were plenty of trees for cover and water at every turn. Little did he know that those observations would come back to bite him in the ass. Shorty pulled out some golf balls from a mesh sack that his wife had bought him at Canadian Tire a few years ago. He pulled out the biggest club in his bag and turned to join his mates on the tee box. Jim had a shiny white club witth a sleek, dark shaft. The head of Jim’s driver was roughly the same size as a pizza. Shorty swallowed hard and looked over at the Vet. The Vet’s driver was roughly the same size as Jim’s, but black in colour. The Vet’s wife was swinging a huge, purple coloured driver in a large graceful arc. Shorty looked down at the dusty brown, wooden head at the end of the metal shaft in his hands. There were some black threads at the end of the shaft that appeared to hold the two parts together. “Shorty, why don’t you show us the way?” “Really?”

Shorty walked over to the two white markers, bent over and carefully put his ball on the end of a broken tee that was stuck in the ground. He looked down the fairway, stepped back and swung with all his might. The ball shot straight up and landed about thirty feet in front of him. It was Shorty who broke the awkward silence. “Tough course!!” he said with an absolute straight face. Well….it turned out that Shorty’s thirty foot drive was his longest of the day not withstanding those that flew into the bush or one on the 14th hole that went at least three times as far and landed in the very middle of one of the watering holes that Shorty had admired on the way out. Their foursome finished 37th out of 36 teams, Jim got so drunk that it was Shorty who finished driving the golf cart and then gave Jim a ride home. Doc said it was the most fun he ever had on a golf course, but Shorty knew he was lying. Shorty’s arms and legs looked as though they had been dipped in ketchup, he was burned so bad, but he agreed with Doc on the most fun part…..and he wasn’t lying. It has been at least three years since that golf tournament. If you look real hard in the furnace room at the house, you will find a plaid, vinyl golf bag with an empty Canadian Tire golf ball container in it. If you look up there will be an orange golf shirt and pair of khaki golf shorts hanging on a nail. Shorty has changed his mind on the rodeo athlete thing, any sport that allows blue jeans and long sleeved shirts is good with him. Those horses are over rated.

“Sure ….let ‘er rip.” Jim smiled at him assuredly.

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.”

The T Bar Invitational was formed to help make a positive impact on the future of our youth. In the last eight years, our generous sponsors have helped us raise over $350,000.00 providing funding and opportunities to a great number of youth. National Junior Associations representing over 2000 members are supplied with a large portion of their yearly funding. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Western Agribition, Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup, Summer Synergy, Stockade Roundup and the Young Ranchman’s All Breeds Livestock Show, which all host interbreed events.

By: Chris Poley For me, this is the time of year I get a chance to sit back, take a breath and reflect on the past year.What an amazing year it was! Last fall started out with calf prices that dreams are made of. Summer started out very dry in many areas and for most, late summer rains came and filled the feed yards. The fall sales in the purebred business were abundant with enthusiasm and optimism resulting in many record sellers. As winter approached we all waited for the “cold snap” that never came. Most of us have never seen such a mild, easy feeding winter; keeping everyone in a very positive frame of mind. For the first time in a long, long time, I didn’t run across a producer who was negative towards the beef business and not one said they planned to get out of the cattle business, unless father time was telling them to do so.

through. Always think about it from the other side; think if you would be as happy as the purchaser. The next step is to follow up during or just after breeding season to make sure the bulls did the job. Not every call will be sunshine and roses but you are best to deal with every situation head on; be proactive not reactive. Many of the commercial producers out there take great pride in their program and are breeders of beef cattle. The best way to forge long term relationships with them is to take an interest in their program and follow it throughout the year; attend or at least follow up on their calf sales and calving season. I guarantee if you contact them a couple times throughout the year and take an interest in their program, you will not have to call them before your bull sale. They will be calling you to ask about this year’s offering.

Spring bull sales started off with a bang, not a boom and never weakened. It was evident that commercial producers had more cash in their pockets than ever and were willing to share it with seed stock producers who they felt were producing the quality they were seeking to advance their programs, ultimately giving them better quality, heavier calves to sell in the fall. The cattle market has slid back lately but it is still The spring bull sale run was nothing short of amazing. good and there is a great deal to be positive about. Last Virtually every sale we were at was as good as the year week 550 pound steers were off one hundred and five before, if not better. dollars from last year but they were still eight dollars Now is when one of the toughest jobs begin for higher than 2014. As cow calf producers, you still stand seed stock producers. A job that some of you try to to make a very reasonable profit. Maybe not the windfall totally avoid, customer service. Many of you would have of recently, but canola can’t always be fifteen dollars a been busy delivering bulls recently and many likely still bushel and oil can’t always be a hundred and ten dollars have lots to go out yet. Customer service is not a call a barrel. However, as long as beef is profitable as it is and just before next year’s sale, checking to see if they need will be for the next while we have lots to be thankful a new bull. It starts the day after your sale. Everyone for. Enjoy your spring, it’s a great season. Young calves will promise to do pretty much anything asked of them out on green grass, there is nothing in agriculture more to make the sale...if you promised it, you have to follow pure, more sustainable and more natural than that.

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.

Causes of Abnormal Sperm Morphology This article is really a continuation of two previous articles, Breeding Bull Management Summer 2009 and Tips on Managing the Newly Purchased Bull Spring 2015. In the 2015 article I wrote that the two main causes of declines in semen quality were heat and stress. By far the most common cause of heat is fat in the neck of the scrotum. Fever, local inflammation, hernias and extremely hot weather are much less prevalent. Feeding high energy diets from pre-weaning up to the yearling stage doesn’t appear to result in as much scrotal fat accumulation compared with feeding similar diets after 16 to 18 months of age. Breed and genetic line probably influence where and how fat is laid down as much as anything. British breeds, or British breed-based cattle; particularly, Herefords and Speckle Park are more prone to scrotal fat accumulation. Angus accumulate fat in the scrotal neck and also under the skin of the entire scrotum causing the testicles to look plump with almost no scrotal neck. The temptation to overfatten bulls for sale as two-year olds is the root cause of many problems - obesity has also been linked to poor sex drive, lameness and premature culling. Advantages assumed by buying a two-year old over a yearling bull can easily be lost due to overfeeding. Stressors associated with increases in sperm abnormalities have to be of at least 3 or 4 day duration. Persistent pain from lameness or fighting injuries, bad weather, or perhaps dehorning have all been demonstrated to cause substantial declines in the proportion of normal sperm due to stress. The appearance of sperm exhibiting the distal midpiece reflex appear first and may be the only abnormality in cases of mild, short-lived stressors. Sperm exhibiting the distal midpiece reflexes can appear in substantial numbers and almost completely disappear within as short as a 3 week window. More severe or long-standing stressful events will result in the appearance of different sperm defects arriving in the sperm picture in a sequence dictated by where the defect occurred in the sperm production process. Very long standing stressors such as a bad foot rot continue to affect many stages along the sperm production process; therefore, a number of different sperm defects will be present; for example: distal midpiece reflexes; proximal droplets; pyriform heads and nuclear vacuoles.

Other causes of poor sperm morphology include genetics, toxins, season, puberty and nutrition. There are a few inherited sperm defects such as the Dag defect and the Tail Stump defect where high numbers of sperm are affected and a genetic link has been proven. Fortunately these are relatively rare. For many other defects a genetic basis has been proposed, but not substantiated. Complicated modes of inheritance and variable expression of the defect are a large part of the reason that a genetic link remains suspected at best. For instance,several of the abnormal sperm morphologies that are suspected of being heritable when in large numbers, may also appear in small to moderate numbers usually with other sperm defects as a result of some other disturbance of sperm production. The temptation to point fingers at the breeding program, therefore, should not be your first response. Puberty requires a few to several months to be completed. The onset of puberty is marked by a low sperm concentration and a high proportion of abnormal sperm. Once sexual maturity has been achieved the bull is able to produce a concentrated semen sample and should have greater than 70% morphologically normal sperm. At the onset of puberty there are a variety of sperm abnormalities present including abnormal head shapes, tightly coiled midpieces and proximal droplets. As puberty progresses proximal droplets become the most prevalent abnormality. Proportions of proximal droplets can be as high as 30, 40, 50, or even 60%; usually with a smattering of other defects. By and large, the pubertal sperm picture is the reason for the Decision Deferred category on the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners (WCABP) breeding soundness evaluation form. This classification implies that the bull will likely have a Satisfactory classification soon, but is not Satisfactory on the day of the test. A Decision Deferred classification doesn’t seem as final as an Unsatisfactory, “the bull is no good”, classification. Proportions of proximal droplets can decline rather quickly within 3 weeks to a month, so retesting in due time is recommended. Sperm with the proximal droplet are not capable of fertilization and it appears that when there are large numbers of proximal droplets even the normal appearing sperm have poor fertilizing potential. Using a bull with high numbers of proximal droplets

for breeding has been proven to result in low conception rates. Puberty and scrotal circumference are closely related with bigger testicles being predictive of puberty beginning at an earlier age. Bulls with large scrotal circumferences and pubertal sperm pictures, i.e. proximal droplets, likely are experiencing prolonged puberty. A pubertal sperm picture is not a “rusty load”. The “rusty load” term was coined for bulls that accumulate, or build up sperm in their tubular duct system. These are usually older bulls that continue to store sperm during periods of sexual rest rather than clean out old sperm daily with urination. The typical scenario at semen testing is a large volume of semen (30 plus mL), containing lots of dead sperm with detached heads. Although cattle can breed year round there is a seasonal effect on sperm production which is especially evident in northern climates. More bulls will fail their semen test during the winter and early spring months than during the late spring and summer. This can be problematic for those hosting early spring bull sales. Seasonality may also be confounded by nutrition – feed quality in the winter often falls short of lush summer pasture. Seasonal/ nutritional sperm pictures usually present with a smattering of defects with some bulls being more affected than others.

With bull sale season peaking in March and turnouts on many commercial operations not occurring until mid-June to midJuly there are many circumstances that can have a negative effect on sperm quality. Over the last couple of years I have had the opportunity to retest more than a few bulls within a few to several weeks after delivery to their new homes. A few, probably less than 5%, of these bulls fail my breeding soundness evaluation due to poor semen quality. Two things that must be kept in mind is that: 1) a breeding soundness evaluation is only a snapshot in time; many things can happen after that; and 2) stress can have a negative effect on semen quality that is variably expressed amongst individuals. Many years ago I was freezing semen on a fancy show dog that sired many litters, but I could never collect a freezable quality sample while he was being shown. My best advice for bull buyers is to try to minimize stress amongst your newly purchased bulls. Branding, fighting, protection from inclement weather, nutrition (feed, minerals, vitamins, water quality and quantity), and even new surroundings can all be sources of stress for your bulls. I suspect that these stressors are even worse for yearling bulls and akin to the stress of weaning. If stress in inevitable allow enough time for your bulls to acclimate before retesting, say 2 or 3 months. In closing: Don’t just think about bull management think of yourself as a manager of semen production and distribution!

Amid the forest-rimmed meadows and newly cross-fenced pastures of western Russia, a quarter-million young beef cows earn their keep by producing high-quality beef while building rural communities and a sustainable future for families on two continents. The Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand began production and sales in Russia this spring, through licensed partner Miratorg Agribusiness Holding, said CAB President John Stika. Most of those cows are commercial purebred Angus, sourced mainly from the United States over the last eight years, and spurred by Russian loan subsidies aimed at building a modern food supply chain. A large share of them belongs to Miratorg. Founded in 1995 in Moscow and already a leader in pork and poultry, company executives researched beef production systems. They were familiar with CAB from the imported product in Russia since 1998 until recent years, and on later visits to the U.S. that included shopping for Angus genetics and initial training in American ranch management.

“The decision to expand beyond North America for the first time was not taken lightly,” Stika said, “but we found much in common. It’s rare to have the opportunity to engage with people starting from scratch,” he added. “And while this partnership has great potential for Russian agriculture and consumers, it stands to strengthen the global reach and reputation of the Certified Angus Beef brand.”

CAB Board Chair, John Pfieffer

CAB board chair John Pfeiffer, Mulhall, Okla., said the decision is “a natural fit,” good for the brand and for breeders: “This whole initiative started when Miratorg began building a herd based on superior Angus genetics from the U.S., and now they are an active member of the American Angus Association.”

USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) estimates more than $300 million in U.S. beef cattle sales to Russia in the last five years, most of that in 2012. Another 80,000 beef cows are expected to enter the country this year. Two 50,000-head feedyards and Miratorg’s 400,000-head annual capacity processing plant were completed in the last two years. These channel production from 140,000 Angus cows, primarily offspring of registered cattle and genetics imported from members of the American Angus Association. Such growth in the beef sector is in contrast to a continuing decades-long liquidation of the Russian cattle herd, mainly dairy or dual-purpose types not known for quality.

The world’s leading brand of fresh beef became a logical end target for the North American-style plan Miratorg announced in 2009 as it began to build up dozens of cattle ranches south of Moscow in the Bryansk region. Its leadership team reached out to CAB in 2011 to explore mutual opportunities, which have been discussed in CAB board meetings since 2013, according to minutes.

After several trips to Russia, Stika said the scale and quality of build in just five years is “impressive.” No less, the commitment to integrity and the means to assure it at every level. Carcasses certified in Russia must meet the same 10 quality standards established in the U.S. and also applied in Canada since 2000, Stika noted. “We have worked to implement systems and best practices that allow checks and balances and assure the integrity we all want.” As in North America, all cattle are inspected for wholesomeness and safety in Russia, but the country has no quality grading system. That’s why the new processing plant utilizes the same state-of-the-art carcass imaging technology proven and used in North America to decide which beef earns the brand. “The carcass grading images as well as video from strategically identified areas in the plant are live-streamed to our offices in Wooster, Ohio, where staff are committed to daily audits that verify integrity,” Stika said. “Miratorg has graciously met all of our requests to have both real and virtual access to data and information to protect the brand’s integrity, partly out of practical necessity but equally a voluntary Miratorg commitment to transparency. ”Pfeiffer noted. “They share our vested interest in making sure the brand is the same high quality coming out of their plant as it is out of our existing licensed packing partners in the U.S. or Canada.”

“Fundamentally, this was a decision about aligning with people committed to the same values and using best practices that ensure integrity, quality, safety and care at every step,” Stika said. As a global brand, CAB does business with partners in 53 countries around the world.

Production of the brand in Russia, initially modest and focused on middle meats for foodservice customers, can grow with CAB’s active role in market development in Russia (closed to U.S. beef since 2013) and in other countries like Saudi Arabia that now have limited access to the brand. “That kind of involvement positions us to protect the use and equity of our trademark in international markets,” Stika said. “Because Miratorg is the right partner – committed to quality in every aspect of this endeavor – we are able to provide more consumers access to our brand, and work together to reduce confusion about Angus brands among customers and consumers.” Premiums paid to U.S. producers depend on the growing strength of worldwide demand for the brand they own, he said.

CAB did not set out to expand production into Russia or any other region, Stika added. But the huge, existing Russian investment in U.S. Angus genetics “provided the opportunity to ensure quality from the start.” While U.S. quality grades have lately risen above 5% USDA Prime, the Miratorg herd starts at 20% to 25% hitting Primeequivalent marbling scores.

Pfeiffer said he appreciates the common values of “capitalism with integrity” that Miratorg represents. “Working with them as they build a Russian beef community and infrastructure complements and supports our mission, and that of everyone who uses registered American Angus genetics to produce premium beef,” Pfeiffer said. “Miratorg registers cattle and helps build our database while paying commissions to the brand, supporting global growth and trademark security,” he added. “As an Angus breeder and consumer, those are all great things.”

Rewards for hitting the Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand target have never been greater, even after 11 consecutive years of growing supply.

five years. North American cattle are clearly getting better, thanks to a combination of value-based marketing opportunities and enabling genetics, observers say.

A survey of CAB-licensed packers Cargill, JBS, National and Tyson showed they paid a record $51.8 million in grid premiums in 2015, and more than $550 million over 20 years. That does not count the smaller amounts for cattle grading AAA, or the Prime premiums for the hundreds of thousands of cattle that supply the increasing demand for CAB Prime in the U.S. Specific to Canada, packers report paying nearly $2 million annually over the past four years. That’s higher than a decade ago, although production has increased with the rate of qualification nearing 28% some weeks this year, double that rate even five years ago. The annual 3.6 million cattle accepted for the brand now account for 16% of all North American fed beef, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported the highest packer premium ever just last November at $10/cwt., and the highest average premium for CAB in February. It’s all driven by product demand, as the premiums match CAB’s advantage over the Choice and AAA cutout value, says CAB President John Stika.

Bruce Cobb, general manager of Consolidated Beef Producers (CBP), Canyon, Texas, says these better cattle are easier to market for feeding customers from Iowa to Texas, who sell more than a million head annually. Cobb says Angus genetics have fueled an evolution, especially obvious in Texas where quality grades move up a step each year to where 90% Choice (AAA) pens are becoming the norm. “Angus are a big part of that,” he says. “We keep progressing toward that new commodity of high quality and yield.” Fear of discounts kept producers from using grid and formula marketing for years, says market economist Scott Fausti, South Dakota State University: “In these last few years with strong demand for beef, packers were making more allowances, and as more producers used grids and formula contracts, they learned to take more precautions to avoid discounts.”

Fig. 1: CAB brand premiums paid by year

“For a company with the mission of adding value to Angus cattle through our branded beef program, it’s satisfying to see the market working to reward producers, even as they supply us with more product to keep setting sales records,” he says. CAB premiums were barely measurable for the first 19 years, though first noted in the 1980s, but the second half of the brand’s 38-year run shows increasing momentum. More than half of all grid premiums ever received for CAB acceptance have been paid in the last seven years. More than 41% of cumulative CAB premiums have come in the past

Controlling genetics, health, management and market timing, producers have been able to reap more rewards than discounts, he says while noting a need for more transparency in pricing. Documenting practices and developing relationships with cattle feeders should lead to more positive information and higher bids for improving cattle. “The premiums all begin with that steak on the plate, and they trickle back through the system all the way to the ranch and to me as a purebred Angus producer,” says Jerry Connealy, Whitman, Neb. “CAB truly is a pull-through demand entity in the market,” he adds. “The commercial guy may not always think about why he’s getting $5 or $10 more per hundred for his calves, but that’s what is pulling it to him. It’s flowing back from the packing plant and feedyard.”

“The average consumer has never had a Prime steak,” he says. “They love our product but they haven’t even tried our best – just think about how we’ll drive demand forward as we continue to ratchet quality up.” Drawing on decades of organizing alliances, feeding and selling on grids, Kasten says marbling is one of the best risk management tools. “Last year was not a good one for profits, but in pens with average per-head losses of $220 or more, we saw profit from those that gained more than 3.75 pounds a day or graded Prime – doing both meant $100 profit,” he reports. Without using more resources, high-quality premiums can pay another $100 or $150 above the market most years. “That gives you a lot of leeway,” Kasten says, “and it is often pure profit.”

Fig. 3: Relationship between CAB-Choice boxed premium and the CAB grid premium

Mike Kasten, commercial Angus producer from Millersville, Mo., says there is no reason to let up on selection pressure that led to an average marbling EPD of 0.62 for 2015-born calves. That’s because the Angus database allows simultaneous selection for other traits, and proven demand says marbling pays.

“Longer term, there’s no reason to think we will see a serious pull-back in carcass weight – we’re certainly not going back to 1,225 or 1,250 lb. – simply because genetics have adjusted,” Cobb says. Producers have adjusted and gone through their own version of culling during widespread drought, he adds. “It caused an early exit for those who were not approaching it as their core business. Those expanding now have the ability to expand their game with better genetics that pay the premium on top of any negotiated base advantages.”

Seminal Vesiculitis (SV) By Roy Lewis DVM Seminal vesiculitis is an infection involving the most predominant, secondary sex glands of a breeding bull. If any of you readers have had bulls on semen evaluation putting out pus in the semen, often these glands are the source. These are paired glands, which sit on the floor of the pelvis and produce the majority of the seminal fluid. This fluid is mixed with semen on ejaculation. Varying degrees of seminal vesiculitis (SV) are detected in 1-10 % of bulls when checked for breeding soundness. You need a rectal exam to detect this infection, as there are no outward signs. These glands can also be double checked by an internal ultrasound Infection is related to several factors. Young bulls on a high nutritional plane, onset of puberty, sexual aggressiveness (bulls riding one another) and housing (crowded conditions) all have been shown to cause an increase in prevalence. Young bulls housed together are often seen mounting one another; it is believed the infection could ascend up the urinary tract. I also believe the intense irritation to the region from mounting and breeding one another contributes to the condition. Concurrent diseases may result in infection developing from the hematogenous (blood borne) route. Pneumonia, kidney infection (pyelonephritis), arthritis, and other blood borne infections may localize in these glands. Omphalophlebitis (also known as a navel infection) may spread into the blood stream or go up the umbilical vessels toward the urinary bladder. It is not uncommon in young breeding bulls with SV to have a past history of navel infection as a calf. A congenital malformation of the duct system not allowing adequate flow of seminal fluid on ejaculation may contribute to a few of the cases but these would be hard to differentiate from true infectious causes. Most cases of SV demonstrate no clinical signs. Cases have to be very advanced before seeing pain upon urination, straining or tail swishing. The infection can descend down to the rest of the reproductive tract causing the same infection in the testicles or epididymus resulting in swellings and pain. Almost all infections are detected when veterinarians perform breeding soundness exams (semen evaluations), which is another important reason to semen evaluate all yearlings that are for sale and all herd bulls. They initially detect them when palpating the secondary sex glands. They will detect swelling and lack of lobulation to the glands. For young purebred bulls before they are one year of age, it is an excellent idea to have your veterinarian palpate the glands. This may avoid selling your client a potential dud bull. Combine this with the same time you have the bulls testicles measured. In severe cases pain on palpation with large abscesses will be detected. Your veterinarian can massage the area and collect a seminal sample

to check for evidence of pus. In some low-grade cases no changes may be palpated but they will detect pus cells in the semen sample. Pus is a major detriment to semen quality and several important decisions need to be made with regards to severity of infection and prognosis for recovery. Palpation in initial cases starts with enlargement progressing to lack of lobulation in the glands and finally to adhesions or scarring in the area. Many cases in young bulls will clear up spontaneously with time. Older bulls should be culled immediately. Other times on young bulls veterinarians elect to try antibiotics and several have proven successful over the years mainly the macrolide family of antibiotics that include Zuprevo, Draxxin, Zactran or Micotil. These are all prescription drugs and must be recommended by your veterinarian, the newest ones are much more longer lasting. We know these drugs stay a long time in the lungs but we don’t know how long they stay in the SV. Some veterinarians have even treated with sodium iodide to allow better penetration of the antibiotic into the site of infection. Prognosis is much better if only one gland is involved. The choice will depend on which ones your veterinarian has had success with. A lengthy period of treatment is necessary. In severe cases in extremely valuable yearlings or older bulls removal of the effected gland is possible. This procedure is performed at referral large animal surgery clinics. Aggressive antibiotic treatment occurs pre and post operatively. Cases must be carefully selected and are more favorable when only one seminal vesicle is involved. The majority of severe and bilateral cases are shipped for slaughter. It is extremely important to note that veterinarians cannot pass a bull on semen quality if any amount of pus is detected in the sample. Therefore any clinical cases will need to be rechecked at a later date. As mentioned previously, many yearlings will clear up spontaneously but it is wise to leave one to two months between rechecks. Any infections not cleared by then are unlikely to be and if one-sided antibiotics can be injected directly into the gland or the gland surgically removed as a last attempt to achieve a viable bull. Preventive measures for purebred breeders stem right back to birth. Measures to prevent navel infections are important. With housing yearling bulls give them lots of space. If any bulls start getting ridden excessively they should be pulled out. A thorough semen evaluation should identify any clinical cases before they are sold. Good management and vaccination practices prevent other serious diseases, which could be the precursor to a secondary disease such as seminal vesiculitis (SV). Do these things and SV will hopefully be a rare occurrence in your bull battery!

The Final Word

t seems that each and every day we are exposed to more critics... recently it surrounds food, namely beef. Being involved in livestock marketing and travelling throughout the country, I believe the best critics of food and housing are the professionals who are employed in the trade. Auctioneers, sale managers and marketers can tell you where they had the best beef on a bun, the worst chili and every good restaurant on the sale circuit. These professionals are loyal to quality restaurants and lodging establishments and commonly refer them to their clients. The preparation of food products goes back to the start of mankind. In North America, the education system had a mandatory class in school called Home Economics (Home-Ec). It educated young people in the preparation and value of food, along with proper hygiene in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. To some students, especially those with eastern European backgrounds, Home-Ec was like recess. They had learned to cook, clean and garden at a very early age, due to necessity and were the basic steps in raising a family, while setting a foundation for building our great nation. But educators of today (many with leftist ideas) eliminated much of this basic education; opting for computers and I-pads...I wonder how many of our current teachers can prepare a roast beef dinner with gravy and mashed potatoes? Our educational system (paid by our taxes) and its theories have diminished family values for generations to follow. Baby Boomers were the last in which home cooking was widely practised and although the female work force increased dramatically (as women wanted more independence and to add to the family income), they could still cook and did! The advent of microwave ovens, fast food and takeout brought changes to Generation X and their eating habits; thus cuts of meat changed from roasts to ground beef...convenient to purchase and fast to eat. Generation Y (sometimes referred to as Millennials or jokingly as Generation “Why”) are living in the fast lane with all kinds of electronics at their disposal. They want to know what they are buying, what they are eating, are very trendy in their lifestyle and more easily swayed without reviewing all the facts. This gets me to “Earls!” All can take lessons from their announcement, then retraction for bad marketing. The sad part of the situation is Generation “Why” is listening, without knowing all the facts. As producers of one of the best products in the world, we know of the safe guards in place through identification (CCIA), The Code of Practise for Care and Handling of Beef Cattle and the Sustainable Beef Roundtable discussions which involved all facets of the meat industry, including restaurants. I have yet to have one person tell me that they must eat “Certified Humane” products or even heard about them. I wonder if Mr. Jessa and his staff know where their vegetables are sourced and what they are treated with for growth development and shelf-life... are they certified? The Humane Farm Animal Care is a non-profit certification organization based out of Herdon, Virginia promoting the “Certified Humane” label. Their income is generated through donations which they solicit daily and their main focus is poultry and swine. Their last press release in March was announcing the first ethically-sourced dry cat food in the USA, if anyone cares. The problem we have in our nation is that tree-huggers and environmentalists will not go away, and they continue to get more support every year. As North America immigrates more and more third world refugees, eating and cultural standards will alter to adapt to their practises. We must adapt and remodel education standards, as the easiest to teach are the young. For those who dine-out as an eating experience, boycott restaurants that do not sell Canadian product and tell your friends to do the same... there are plenty of great restaurants that serve the best beef in the world... made in Canada!
