Just fifteen minutes west of Outlook, lays the village of Bounty (formally known as Botany) or what is left of it. Bounty was once a small village of 200 residents, with nineteen businesses, which included a three-story twenty-four room hotel, three grain elevators, two banking establishments and a newspaper called the Fertile Valley Echo. Today, Bounty sits lonely on the prairie skyline, for all that remains is a few scattered buildings, a community hall and the local cemetery. A mere short run south of the forgotten hamlet is the home of a family breeding operation built from pure drive, determination and necessity. Their family forefathers migrated from Ontario to the Milden area, a short drive west of Bounty, where they established a homestead in the early 1900’s. But the “dirty thirties” caused traumatic family ruin, and the children were farmed out, leaving the family scattered. James T. Johnston was relocated to Marsden, Saskatchewan where he took a job with Jay S. Palmer, an affluent rancher who raised purebred Herefords under the farm name of EXL Herefords. It was there that James developed a knowledge and fondness for breeding purebred seed stock. In 1939, Germany declared war on Great Britain and being a member of the commonwealth, Canada joined the Great War. Many young Canadian farm boys joined the forces to fight for our freedom and amongst them was Private James T. Johnston. During his tour of duty, James met Mary, who hailed from the neighbouring province of Manitoba and after the war in 1945, the couple were married. Johnston and his new bride returned to Saskatchewan where James found employment as a carpenter, a trade which he had learned and used while in the service, but he could not forget his rural roots. With the help of the VLA, James and Mary purchased three quarter sections of

farmland in 1952 which was the start of Fertile Valley Farm, named after the municipality, located near Conquest. The VLA (Veterans’ Land Act) was passed in 1942, following a Canadian tradition dating from the 17th century of settling ex-soldiers on the land. With only a very small down payment, ex-servicemen could purchase land with the help of a government loan; additional funds were also available for livestock and equipment. Repayment terms allowed settlers time to re-establish themselves without incurring heavy financial obligations. James and Mary raised three children, Dennis, Dorothy and David. The children received their education in a one room school house located a mile from the farm, then finished high school at the neighbouring center of Outlook. Dennis recalls, “Our early years growing up were not much fun. The first home was a sort of fixed up granary and what I remember most, is how cold the nights were. We were poor, but I think our growing experience made us stronger and more determined.” In 1952, James T. Johnston added a small package of registered Hereford females purchased from EXL Herefords to his commercial herd of cattle. This purchase was the foundation of what became one of the leading Polled Hereford herds in Canada. The eldest son, Dennis, entered the University of Saskatchewan on completion of high school ,with aspirations of veterinary medicine, but after his first year chose to be closer to livestock and obtained a position with a new and exciting Hereford operation, Glenkirk Farms, Maysville, Missouri, in 1969. Dennis worked with the show team in the fall and winter and in the summer months, he AI’ed and treated cows. In his first year with Glenkirk, they showed the National Champion Bull “Can-Am Investor,” the Canadian bred bull from Mel Clark, Grandview, Manitoba and the start of change in

Today’s Angus Advantage Winter 2012  58


belt buckle cattle. During his four year tenure with Glenkirk, they won four grand champions at the National Western Stock Show. After leaving Glenkirk Farms, Dennis accepted a position as manager of Paul Deere Farms, Springfield, Ohio from 1974 to 1984. Paul Deere was a very affluent industrialist involved in the oil and steel industry. The farm was based on reclaimed land and included corn, soybeans, a hog operation and in addition, a large registered Polled Hereford herd. The first Angus influence to touch the Johnston family was through Dennis, when he accepted the position of ranch manager at N Bar Ranch, Grass Range, Montana. This 41,000 acre ranch ran 1350 Angus cows and marketed over 200 bulls each year. It was during his term that N Bar EXT was bred and born, later becoming a legend in the Angus breed. In the fall of 1987, with father James getting on in years, Dennis returned to Canada and the family farm; bringing a new horizon with him... Angus. The youngest son David, on completing his high school education, formed a partnership with his father and continued building the great Fertile Valley cow herd, as well as establishing a bull market for the Fertile Valley Farm. Like his older brother, David was quite competitive in his own right showing numerous champions. The most significant win was the 1977 Grand Champion Bull at the famous Regina Bull Sale, FV Massive Man. The bull topped the sale at $20,200.00 but most significantly paid for the purchase of a bale wagon to forage feed for the 100 plus cow herd. David recalls, “I wish we had him now; great ones of any breed are timeless.”

FV Massive Man - Regina Bull Sale 1977 Grand Champion Bull

In 1979, the Fertile Valley Polled Hereford cow herd was sold in a private treaty deal of 100 cows selling for a quarter of a million dollars. It was a most welcome boost for David and his father, as it paid off Crowd shot at an early Ranchers Choice Bull Sale the family debt and the balance of funds was put into a high interest earning fund for his parent’s retirement. (In that era, bank interest was at record all time high.) It enabled the Johnstons to continue with their farming program. Building the Angus dream ... began with the purchase of two females from Jim Turner, Green Valley Angus, Hobson, Montana. The boys recall, “The cows come in February. The first one calved and had a scrawny heifer calf, while the other gave us a stout bull calf which we sold for $6800.00. The next year the females reversed roles and we sold the bull calf for $5000.00. Remember the scrawny heifer calf, well as a two year old she gave us a bull calf that topped the Midland Test station. By then, we realized the Angus breed and the business around it would be good.” They added Dennis’s pick of ten cows from the N Bar program, a group of females from the Double AA program at Coleville, a package of heifers from Prairie Lane, Souris, Manitoba and a group of bred heifers from Auzzie Dodge, Shellbrook, Saskatchewan. The Dodge heifers were all daughters of Brookside Bandolier 12U who was four years of age at that time. “After calving the 12U daughters out the next spring, we went back and bought 12U and used him until the age of sixteen. Over eighty percent of the herd goes back to that great

Today’s Angus Advantage Winter 2012  59


foundation bull,” David adds. 12U was used very successfully; line breeding for the high maternal traits developed at Fertile Valley.

In 1987, a meeting with Bill Dillabaugh, Double AA Angus, Coleville, Saskatchewan, Dennis and Bill shared a common definition in what the market place required. A

Brookeside Bandolier 12U

Ultra Sounding cattle at Fertile Valley

In 1997, Dennis and David journeyed to the Government Research center at Manyberries, Alberta and purchased a group of females from the One Four Ranch. The package of females included Queen 362E who produced the great breeding FV 20K King 308M who is now owned with Schaff Angus Valley and Basin Angus Ranch. Fertile Valley sold a flush in Queen 362E for $30,000.00 which was considerably more than they paid for the package of cows.

common bond was formed and along with Kim Robertson, Saskalta Angus, Alsask, Saskatchewan, they formed an Angus producer group called “Rancher’s Choice” and held the first “Ranchers Choice Bull Sale” in 1989 at Double AA. In 1991, the sale was relocated to Medicine Hat, Alberta. The sale filled a void which was badly needed and from the first sale in 1989, a tremendous success. They expanded to having sales in Provost, Alberta and in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In 2004, the “Ranchers Choice Sale” was moved to Saskatoon and was in operation until Bill Dillabaugh’s health forced his dispersal and a break-up of the group late in 2005. In April of 2006, Johnston’s Fertile Valley started their own bull Sale in Saskatoon and has continued annually; the 2012 sale will be held on April 13th at Saskatoon Livestock sales. In 1989, Fertile Valley was the original research program for ultra sound in Canada, providing carcass data for their customers and is the longest running herd in Canada providing this information.

Queen 362E

Although both brothers loved to show and were very successful in their endeavours, breeding a product which is required and accepted by the commercial sector became priority one. Dennis states, “Commercial people are not about ribbons, they are about sustaining a living in an industry they love.”

The Fertile Valley program is based on four thousand acres and in excess of six hundred breeding females. They AI the majority each year to proven bull which advances the program at a rapid pace. The entire livelihood is based on the cattle. Since they use swath grazing throughout the fall and early winter months, all extra grain and forage is purchased. Each spring the bull sale offers 80 to 100 bulls and they maintain the same number at the ranch for their many private treaty customers. David states, “We always need extras throughout the summer for customers who have wrecks ... it’s just part of our customer service mentality.”

His OCC Moonshine 740M donor dam posted individual weaning and yearling ratios of 105 and 126 respectively with lifetime progeny ratio of 5/104 with 3 daughters in production and a top son sold through last year’s bull sale. Consider the predictability of producing moderate, perfect-uddered, easy fleshing daughters with 6807, Emulation 31, Shoshone and Rito 707 linebred top and bottom into unique maternal tabulation.

Canadian feedlots and ranchers can cooperate to improve beef produced from cowherds across the nation, all in the interest of profitably growing demand. Domestically and around the world, the beef already has a reputation for unsurpassed safety and traceability, along with the high quality of grain feeding. The next level is to track and improve individual carcass quality. “We’ve built our production protocols with that in mind,” says Travis Hickey, general manager of cattle strategies for Western Feedlots, with custom feeding operations near Strathmore, High River and Mossleigh, AB. Working together, the industry can expand both supply and demand for high-quality beef by recording and sharing data, and then using it. “Today, we can provide weights on arrival, average daily gain during the feeding period, death loss, carcass weight, quality grade and yield grade, all on an individual basis,” he adds. Charlie Fullerton, who uses Angus bulls on black and black baldy cows north of Pincher Creek, AB, has been feeding with Western for more than 20 years. He retained ownership until the last two years when he sold directly to the feedlot, which has shared performance and carcass data for several years. “That lets us see which cows and bulls are doing the best; I’ve culled some cows partly on their carcass data,” says Fullerton. The improvement in grade from 50 per cent AAA to 75 per cent AAA he attributes to both culling the lower end and adding more Angus genetics. “A lot of people don’t think about premiums for quality, or even know what they have. You don’t unless you feed them,” says Fullerton. “Then if they don’t perform on the grid, you’ve got to start changing something.” Another 20-year customer, Twin H Cattle Co., near Goodsoil, SK, looks forward to getting individual data now. Trevor Himmelsbach and his family start calving their 800 Angus-base cows in later winter. They are weaned in October and custom fed at Western Feedlots. “We’ve seen the group data for many years, but could not link that to our own records until now,” says Himmelsbach. “We’ve had a big improvement, but looking forward to more,” he says. “The bulls I use for AI, I try to select those that will marble well, get a good ribeye and a little less fat – high grid bulls you might say. Being able to select on the cow side as well, we can make more improvement in those traits.” Group data showed Certified Angus Beef ® (CAB®) brand acceptance less than 20 per cent and no more than one per cent Prime. “That’s not where I want those to be,” says Himmelsbach. “We can make a lot of progress there, looking back on which cows are producing CAB and Prime, and AI’ing those to get even better replacements in their progeny.” The more data, the easier it is to see the effect of a change in feeding program, implant or market weight. The more known the more value, but it’s a dynamic set of data, says Hickey. “Genetics change from one year to another with the use of different bulls, and there can be large variation within a herd,” he says. “We work with producers in understanding how their cattle performed relative to their cohorts in the areas of performance, health and carcass attributes.” Western sorts individual cattle into the yard and as they are ready for market to reduce variation in carcass weight and manage optimal end-points.

“We encourage cow-calf producers to get more than just carcass data back, because without other information it is of very little value,” adds Hickey. “For example, as the industry adopts beta-agonists and new implant technologies, it drastically alters the carcass composition.” Knowing the information context helps keep genetic selection on track. Of course, marbling and quality grade are often up for discussion as part of the entire “complex puzzle.” “All else being equal, an average yielding carcass that grades upper AAA and fits the CAB brand can be worth $50 per head more than AA of the same weight,” says Hickey. It’s not uncommon for a load of Western-fed cattle to go 80 per cent AAA, and some 100 per cent or better, but the CAB share has been more commonly in the 10 to 15 per cent area. That can improve while making progress on feed efficiency at the same time, says Hickey, based on company data. That is, you don’t have to give up quality when selecting for feed efficiency. That tandem focus—quality with efficiency—is the key to producing beef that will attract more consumers, both domestic and globally. Hickey says foreign delegations that tour Western Feedlots are “blown away” by the level of individual information and traceability. “And they trust our feeding programs. This is becoming more important with the average consumer everywhere, so Canada is in a great position moving forward.”

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.

Understanding and Using EPDs Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) numbers are a valuable tool when selecting breeding stock. Where do these EPD numbers come from? How do I use them? To the uninitiated, the number of EPD values available can seem overwhelming. Counting carcass and ultrasound traits which have subcategories such as marbling, ribeye area etc. there are over a dozen different traits that you can select for using EPDs and that number is likely to grow. They can be as daunting as looking at a financial statement if you don’t know what the numbers mean or how they were generated. Some may believe that EPDs are yesterday’s news; genes/ genetic markers are the way to go! EPDs have been around since the 1980’s and are made possible only because of incredible advances in computer technology. The identification of genes and EPDs both have a place in animal selection, but represent different branches of the science of genetics. EPDs fall into what is known as quantitative genetics; whereby, through complex calculations the genetic component of measurable traits like body weight is determined. Identifying and studying the influence of individual genes is molecular genetics which is a much newer and rapidly expanding field that looks at the function and interactions of genes. In many cases the molecular side is helping to explain differences in EPDs, but we still have only hit the tip of the iceberg in molecular genetics. EPDs are more of a big picture tool for genetic selection and will remain so until we figure out how all of these genes interact and how they interact in various environmental situations. A common misunderstanding is that EPDs predict actual performance of the animal. Two key words are average and progeny! They actually predict the average performance of the animal’s progeny. They are not designed to predict the animals own performance and they will not predict uniformity in the calf crop. In other words, you can still have great calves and not-so great calves, but on average the calves from a bull with a higher EPD for a growth trait than his same-breed contemporary should perform better. You also can’t compare EPDs between breeds; only within a breed. How animals perform is determined not only by genetics, but also by how they are raised. Pasture, creep feeding, how the dam milks, weather, disease, parasites and so on can all play a role in how fast the calf grows. Calves from a single AI sire in one herd may weigh more at weaning than calves from the same bull

in another herd, so it is important that groups of calves are compared as fairly as possible, accounting for these differences in management. Within your own herd this is usually pretty straight-forward if all calves go to the same pasture, just don’t forget to compare bulls, heifers, steers and twins separately. However, to calculate EPDs, this information must be entered into a computer program designed to account for these differences and to keep track of all of this animal’s relatives. Heritability of trait is also considered when calculating EPDs and is a scientifically determined estimate of, for example, how much the difference between the yearling weights of two calves is due to genetics. So for yearling weight the heritability is approximately 40%; therefore, 60% of the difference is due to feeding etc. If a yearling bull has an adjusted 365 day weight that is 100 lbs heavier than the average of the others in the evaluation then only 40 lbs of that difference is consider to be due to genetics. Now that young bull will only account for ½ of the genetic makeup of his calf-crop so his EPD for yearling weight is only +20 lbs based on his performance information alone. However, this is only part of the story. Calculating EPDs requires performance information from not only the animal in question, but also as many relatives as possible. As the animal matures and has progeny of its own that information is included and really enhances the accuracy of the EPDs. EPDs are recalculated with every calf crop and the more information that is received from successive generations the more accurate or reliable the EPDs become. Traits like birth weight, weaning weight and yearling weight are correlated so that must be accounted for too. Accuracy values are often listed below the respective EPD. The higher the number the less chance there is that the EPD will change very much with subsequent calf crops which means that the average performance of that animal’s calves is not going to vary much from what was seen previously. Young bulls will have EPDs with low accuracies so it is not uncommon to see their EPDs change over time. Sometimes for the better; sometimes not. Sires with large numbers of progeny as is often the case with AI sires will have the most accurate EPDs. If you maintain a herd of purebred cattle composed of relatively obscure cow families and never submit any performance information then EPDs for your animals are not going to be very useful to anyone. There is simply not a lot there to substantiate those numbers.

Today’s Angus Advantage Winter 2012  118


For most commercial cattlemen, there are really only four EPDs they need to look at: birth weight (BW); weaning weight (WW); yearling weight (YW); and milk. The others, with perhaps the exception of the carcass traits, are more useful for purebred breeders. Birth weight is the best predictor of calving ease and the birth weight EPD is more reliable than looking at the bull’s own birth weight. A bull with a 65 lb birth weight may have been born early, may be a twin or could have been born to a heifer. These sorts of things are accounted for in the EPD calculation. Weaning weight and yearling weight are easily measured performance traits. A bull with a 10 lb higher weaning EPD another bull of the same breed will sire calves that weigh an average of 10 lbs more at weaning. The milk EPD is a maternal EPD. What this means is that it is predicting the performance of the animals daughters, not the sons. The daughters of a bull with a +20 milk EPD would be expected to wean calves that weigh 10 lbs more than a bull with a +10 milk EPD. Obviously, the sons don’t produce milk, but they can pass on superior traits to the next generation. If you want more milk in your herd choose sires with higher milk EPDs.

Comparing animal to animal when looking through the sale catalogue is one way to use EPDs; another is to compare to the breed average usually also posted in the sale catalogue. It is important to realize that the breed average does not mean that the average animal possesses that particular set of numbers rather that is the average for each individual trait. If you are looking for a heifer bull then compare the birth weight EPDs to the average birth weight EPDs for the breed. One of the most common mistakes I see is the tendency to focus on only one trait when selecting bulls versus balanced trait selection. Cattlemen in the market for a heifer bull will focus on a calving ease breed and then look for a bull with a low birth weight EPD. Likewise, I have seen bulls selected for use on heifers with breed leading WW and YW EPDs. With the exception of what we call curve benders these traits are related. Bulls with really high WW EPDs generally have BW EPDs well above average. Determine which traits are important to you, then choose acceptable EPD ranges for those traits, and realize that tradeoffs may have to be made.

JA-LYN FARMS LTD. MANITOBA ANGUS COMMERCIAL PRODUCER FOR 2011 Ja-Lyn Farms Ltd. is a family oriented farm owned and operated by Barry and Glenn Lowes and their wives Brenda and Shelley. Barry and Brenda’s boys Justin and Nevin also work full time on the farm along with their families. Glenn and Shelley’s children, Brooke and Stacey, also work on the farm in the summer. This is when they aren’t at college in Vermilion, in Brooke’s case, or playing junior hockey in Stacy’s. They also employ one other full time farm hand. James and Evelyn Lowes settled on the home farm in 1962, with about 400 acres and a few cows. Over the past 50 years the farm has grown to about 8000 acres of grain, hay, and pasture land, a 3500 head feedlot, 1400 cow calf pairs, as well as 300-400 breeding heifers. The cows are mainly Angus or Angus Simmental cross, as mainly Black Angus bulls have been used for over the last 20 years, a few black Simmental bulls have been added in the last three years. There are around 70 bulls in the bull pen. When buying bulls Glenn and Barry find two year olds work best in their operation but it is quite limited as to where they can buy virgin two year olds so they do purchase the off yearling. They try to buy all purebred bulls as close to home as possible, mostly from breeders in Western Manitoba or Eastern Saskatchewan. Recently they have been breeding 300-400 black heifers each year. They heat detect and A.I. breed them for 21 days. Then as the heifers are bred they are put out to pasture with clean-up bulls. Barry and Glenn keep a tight 42 day breeding period for their heifers and try to get the bulls pulled from the cows at 70 days. They have been selling some of their bred heifers since they started this program. Calving season starts May 1st, on the grass. All the cattle are grazed on either our own land or pastures that are rented to them. Some of these cattle are looked after by the land owners or the local PFRA but most are checked by them. All the calves are weaned in November then back grounded in the feedlot until spring. The steers and the second cut heifers are put out on grass as yearlings, then finished in the feedlot and sold direct to the packing plant. The steers finish out from 1400-1500 lbs. from February to April and the heifers 1300 – 1500 lbs. in the same time. 75% or more of them grade triple A. Glenn and Barry find it very satisfying to see the uniformity and the consistency of the fat cattle when they are finished and shipped in semi load lots. Over the years they have found the Angus breed works well in their operation and they plan to continue to using them. The Lowes family would like to thank the Manitoba Angus Association for choosing them as the Manitoba Angus Commercial Producers for 2011.

Manitoba Youth Win Purebred Heifers through the Grant Moffat Herd builder Award 2011 Kayla Zamrykut, a 20 year old producer from Rorketon; Braden Calvert, a 16 year old producer from Carberry; and Raina Syrnyk, a 16 year old producer from Ethelbert were the 2011 recipients of the Grant Moffat Herd builder Award. Grant Moffat, Holmsyde Charolais, Forrest, went missing in August, 2006. The funds generously donated by cattlemen, friends and relatives across the country were offered as a reward for tips leading to his whereabouts. After a year, a committee handling the funds made a decision to channel the money to Manitoba youth for the purpose of starting their own purebred herd. Grant invested a lot of energy in actively helping youth get started in the business and this seemed the most fitting way to utilize the funds. Over twenty applicants submitted essays, making the selection exceptionally difficult. The participants were evaluated on desire, need and previous expression of interest in the industry. To date, twelve Juniors from across Manitoba have benefited from the program. Each of the three youth were awarded up to $2000 towards the purchase of a heifer selected from a Manitoba purebred sale. Kayla Zamrykut purchased a Charolais heifer, Braden Calvert purchased a Polled Hereford heifer and Raina Syrnyk purchased a Black Angus female to enhance or start their purebred herd of cattle. Rainas Winner 2011

Thanks to the generous support of producers at the Fund Raising Auction at the Manitoba Beef Producers Annual Meetings, the Grant Moffat Herd builder Awards will be presented again in 2012 with the application deadline being September 1st.

By Chris Poley

2012 will be the year of the believer! For all of you who stayed fast in your belief that common sense would prevail, our markets would reopen and the demand for your high quality safe protein source would rebound. Many did not believe and bailed out; that is their loss and your gain as they helped to decrease inventory, which will keep the prices higher for longer. Having just returned from Denver, it was very encouraging to see a definitely more upbeat beef industry on that side of the border too. The US inventories are low, creating higher demand for available product, which is also good for us Canadians. Export possibilities around the world for Canadian beef and live cattle are plentiful. I recently heard one of the Angus Association fieldmen comment that he had been attending the feeder sales for a few years now and this fall was the first time he realized producers in his area had teeth, because this was the first fall he had seen them smile. These smiles are well deserved and long over due. There is a young guy in my area who increased his inventory by more than double in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and this was not easy as we all know the banks did not have the foresight to lend money on five hundred dollar cows (but they will today on fifteen hundred dollar cows). However, they scrimped and saved and bought cows and the calves he sold this fall out of the cows he bought, brought twice the purchase price of the cow. He was a believer and got rewarded for his belief. Now this is all feel good, warm and fuzzy stories and that is okay because we all deserve to hear them as the market is good and the industry is strong and we all dam sure heard enough negative stories through the last eight years. Now that things are good though is no time to sit back and coast; rather it is the time when you can afford to get aggressive and capitalize at the highest possible level. The single most influential contributor to your calf crop and ultimately your

bottom line is your herd bull selection. When prices are high that is when you need to purchase sires that will give you top quality calves with the most possible pounds to sell at a high price per pound. Work with breeders who you are comfortable doing business with and ask them to help you with your bull selections. After all they have studied the genetics before they ever purchased the sire or straw of semen. They will know the strengths and weaknesses of each pedigree and have been with their sale bulls virtually since the day they were born and know their growth patterns. Depending on your individual management practices and target marketing timing, different bloodlines will be more suited. Any reputable breeder will be more than willing to assist you with your selection and will be honest and straight up with you or he will only ever do business with you twice, the first and last time. Some people may feel like they are bothering the owner or feel stupid asking lots of questions about the bulls and the program. There is no need to feel that way; there is no such thing as a dumb question and besides, you might as well make him earn the sale, your business and your trust. After all, there has to be a partnership formed between the breeder and the bull buyer for both to be successful. Enjoy the good times we are in and the excitement and promise a new calf crop brings! See you on the road.

The billions spent on space exploration has proven and provided us with a wealth of valuable knowledge. The satellites which man put into orbit have changed the way of life for the majority of people living in the modern world. If someone would have told me (during my years of growing up in the metropolis of Blaine Lake) that in the year 2011, one could communicate with another party, in another country, thousands of miles away, instantly, by using a hand held device much smaller than a cigarette package, I would have said they were crazy. But today it is commonplace and children of the twenty-first century appear like they cannot live without it... especially text messaging. In our office business could not be conducted without the electronics of today, as virtually all communications from text to pictures are viewed through a computer screen. Space exploration has shown us that the moon is not made of green cheese nor will it be our next area to expand arable land in order to produce more food, therefore we are stuck with what we have on Mother Earth. The United Nations recently forecasted that by the year 2050, the world will need seventy-three percent more food product to feed the growing population, using the available arable land base. To achieve this forecast level, the production of food will have to become the most important priority to all governments by changing policies and leading the world out of our current financial recession. The butter and guns scenario will reverse. The consumer will contribute a far higher percentage of take home pay to survive. Since change is continual, change in the livestock industry in North America during the past eighteen months has been a welcomed transformation. The future of the cattle business is laden with opportunities but we have already seen a demographic change. After “feels like a hundred years” era with BSE, many of the older experienced producers have dispersed their herds, especially those with smaller programs. Higher grain prices have also forced decisions of change. In areas of higher urban populations, asphalt, concrete and escalating land values are taking the fun out of cows and in some areas replaced by horses as a lower maintenance hobby. As the livestock industry goes into its restocking years, many factors will change. Existing cow herds will become larger and run by fewer personnel. The age of the producer will become younger with a new and improved knowledge of operation, limiting risk. There will be less purebred seed stock producers and sadly to say, there will be fewer breeds of cattle, simply because breeds that have a lesser base will not be able to afford or maintain the technology required for the new breed of stockmen.

A very successful livestock dealer related that, “we must remember that beef is considered a luxury item in the food chain.” He went on to say, that we must continue to strive to produce a superior product that the consumer will want to purchase, simply because there are very suitable alternatives. The purebred breeder must continually upgrade his program, providing the commercial sector a higher degree of predictability. Since cow herds will be larger, commercial cattlemen will purchase multiples of bulls from one breeding establishment and their success will dictate your success as repeat customers. The Angus breed sits in an enviable position. Angus has the most branded beef programs in the world and those who are not Angus have tried to copy them. Major food chains advertise Angus beef to maintain market share and every feedlot in North America wants Angus influence in the cattle that are fed. As a commercial producer, one must select bulls from the front end of the pen and from producers that can provide data, a track record and a high degree of customer service. As a seed stock producer, one must continually improve the herd bull battery with new genetics that carry a degree of predictability. The down side of the livestock industry is marketing. Since there are various breeds that all toot their own horn; a multitude of cattlemen’s associations and committees all wanting to be heard, selling our product to our consumer is often forgotten or taken for granted. To achieve higher market share, the promotion of beef needs to be a team effort by all the various bodies. Beefy is trendy and needs to be marketed in that manner to get to the young consumer. Did you ever ask yourself why you can see more ads for male enhancement than ads for beef? Cowboys, enjoy the ride... it will be very good and for a long time... don’t come up short on the next good bull.
