About the Cover: This World Show week culminated in the crowning of Pason Wylie’s favorite Mini-Bull, SS Shaggy Jameson, as the TLBAA Grand Champion. This was Pason’s first year showing Longhorns and the season started by showing standard Longhorns from KC Springs Ranch at a show in Lubbock, Texas. This inspired Pason to lasso and train Shaggy, an April 2021 bull, and several others from his family’s own herd. During the season Shaggy and Pason won over 30 Championships with Shaggy awarded the TLBAA Hall of Fame Bull of the Year award and Pason taking home an award for the TLBAA Hall of Fame Showman Top 10. Pason has an active haltering and training program for many breeders and owners. Shaggy’s first progeny hit the ground while we were at World Show. This is the first of many for him.

EDITOR’S NOTES

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD... ...EXPO, THAT IS!

This issue celebrates one of our most major of events...the TLBAA World Expo featuring the TLBAA World Show and the TLBT National Youth Show. When you look at our event calendar each month and see the word qualifying followed by words such as Haltered, Youth or Miniatures, that tells you those shows can qualify you to participate at the World Expo. It’s that simple. Go to Affiliate shows or TLBAA Shows, place high enough to qualify, then you, too, can join the fun next year at the Expo.

The pages in this issue are just a small glimpse into all that goes on. Youth can participate in Gold Merit competition, livestock judging and in the show ring, while adults and kids alike can be part of the photography contest. Anyone can enter the Open Show and the Texas Gold Futurity.

If you’ve never been, plan for next June and watch E-Trails, Trails and www.tlbaa.org for information. Even if you don’t show cattle, it’s a great opportunity to see some of the best show cattle in the industry and meet some super nice and helpful breeders.

But you don’t have to wait until June to participate in one of our events. Starting on Pg. 14 you can learn all about the 2023 TLBAA Horn Showcase coming up in October. It features a sale, horn measuring competition, futurity, special awards and a banquet and concert. This year it is up Oklahoma City way in a new facility and it promises to be a good one! There’s still time to enter animals in the measuring and futurity, or you can just come hang out, meet some great people and see some impressive cattle.

There are many options if you want to participate in the industry in a positive way. This issue includes the criteria and nomination processes for both the TLBAA Special Awards and the Hall of Fame. There are also two contests currently taking photo entries: The Rodger Damrow Colorful Calf Contest and the Photo contest for 2020 Females and their 2023 calves.

We also accept photo contributions at all times for potential use in editorial and potential Trails covers, as well as news tidbits for News on the Trail. Turn the pages and take a look at all the ways you can put your name and/or your animals in front of people for little to no cost.

And if you want to step it up a notch and put them on a cover, an ad or the TLBAA yearly wall calendar just reach out and I’ll gladly provide you with information on advertising options.

We hope to hear from you soon, whether its a hello at an event or a call from you to find out more about how we can help you be active in the industry and in Trails.

Chairman’s Message

The Founding members of the TLBAA had a vision to preserve , protect, and promote the Texas Longhorn cattle for future generations . They left us a set of bylaws and other documents outlining what future breeders would need to do in order to carry out their vision . I have been digging thru some of the old articles and documents the Founding members left behind and would like to start sharing them so that we as reputable breeders of good character can insure we carry out their vision so future generations can enjoy the Texas Longhorn cattle as much has they did .

Here is one of the documents I found (TLBAA Breeders Handbook 1996) that really paints the picture of what we as breeders should be looking for when picking out what traits the cattle we are buying and breeding for should have.

Productivity Outline of Economically Important Traits of the Purebred Female

I. Reproduction

* Heifers should calve at two years of age and raise a calf to weaning.

* Calving interval should be no more than 365 days.

* Cows should reproduce with a minimum of supplemental feed.

* Selection pressure should be toward heifers and cows that breed/rebreed early in the breeding season.

* Open cows will lose 15 to 20% of their lifetime production value per year that they are not bred.

* Open cows are best sold in a commercial setting and replaced with a bred heifer or cow with known genetic and health background.

* Open cows in a purebred setting may justify retention only if they are young (Jess than five years of age) and of significant monetary value and true justification of why they are open as a management result.

II. Functionality

* Longevity is extremely important-soundness of mouth, feet, legs and udders indicate potential for long, productive life. Additionally, cows with a history of prolapse, or abnormal calving difficulty or other physical impairment that increases management needs and costs in producing a calf above the norm should be considered for culling.

* Weigh opportunity costs of developing a replacement female against the value of the open cow. Any special attention to a cow (lack of convenience) should also be weighed against a bred replacement heifer in potential value.

* Cows lacking functional abilities should not produce breeding bulls for the commercial industry

III. Production

* Cow should provide sufficient milk to wean a calf at the target weight established by the management.

* Genetic potential for growth is important. This can most effectively be achieved through the use of superior sires.

* 87.5% of the genetics in a herd where replacement heifers are produced can be attributed to the last three sires or groups of sires used. Bull should be selected for maternal traits.

* Weaning weights are highly correlated to cow productivity; therefore, culling decisions can be based on weaning weights.

* ACCURATE records are required for cow herd production evaluations.

* Ideally, there should be some revenue generated from the cow-calf unit each year even if the only revenue available is the salvage value of the cow.

* Observe the functionality of the cow’s offspring. If she consistently produces progeny with functional problems, such as bull calves with pendulous sheaths, cull the cow.

* Production records including birth weights, weaning weights, yearling weights, and attention to EPDs are important tools to enhance selection effectiveness.

Selection must be applied in the purebred herd for cow performance. Annual evaluation at weaning time is recommended with priority emphasis on reproduction, functionality, and production records. Special attention to those factors that relate to convenience in cow herd management is needed. Additionally, purebred breeders should manage the cow herd as a commercial entity as much as possible. There is value in the old question, “If the registration papers were lost, would you keep your cows as a commercial herd?”

2023 TLBAA Horn Showcase: Join Us in Oklahoma City or Participate Remotely

The TLBAA Horn Showcase makes its debut at the Canadian County Expo Center located just west of Oklahoma City this year on October 12 – 14! All the measuring, Futurity, Bull Alley, sales, seminars and banquet take place in the Expo Center. We are also excited to offer a concert with Max Stalling immediately following the awards banquet the evening of Saturday, October 14. This is an event to not be missed!

Measuring Contest: The first and only event offering official horn measurement records for Texas Longhorn cattle. Tip-to-Tip, Total Horn, Composite and Twisty measurements will be taken based on the choice of the entrants. If you are unable to attend, be sure and check out the satellite locations for the weekend before, October 7 & 8, as there should be one close enough for you to enter and attend. Satellite entries vie for the same measurement awards as being in Oklahoma.

Futurity: Cattle are judged individually in class divisions by a set of five judges against breed standards. It is a look at the complete animal – conformation, color and horn. Scores are ranked in each class to determine a winner. Additionally, this is an opportunity to earn a bit of prize money!

A Futurity win is a cattleman’s validation that their breeding program is producing what the industry desires. Even spectators take away a lot of insight as to what needs adjusting in their herd to produce marketable Longhorns. They are fun to enter and educational to watch – Come check it out!

Superior Awards: Those animals winning both their Futurity and Measuring classes will take home a coveted award recognizing those who excel overall.

Bull Alley: Come take a seat and hold on to your hat as we dim the lights, start the music and bring in each bull to stand in the spotlight as you hear more about his genetics and production record and dream of adding some new genetics to your herd but….WAIT! All you have to do to take that genetics home with you is bring a semen tank or order semen for delivery at the event. This is window shopping at its best!

An awesome opportunity to see industry leading bulls in person and purchase semen at special event pricing. If you can’t be live at the event, you can still purchase semen online and have it shipped. Look for a sneak peak at those bulls in the September issue foldout.

Select Sale: This year we are offering a true Select Sale with limited consignments to showcase the best our breeders have to offer. These buying opportunities will be available on Saturday, October 14 with some of the finest Texas Longhorn cows you can find offered.

For the sale, either bring your trailer or fire up the computer to bid on-line via Hired Hand Live. There are offerings to fit any program. Look for the catalogs on-line in advance of the event and as part of your September Trails issue.

Awards Banquet: Have we got a fun filled evening in store after the sale on Saturday! We begin with an awards banquet featuring Texas Longhorn beef! This is the opportunity to hear the winners’ announced, get those award photos, eat a tasty meal and enjoy the camaraderie with fellow Longhorn enthusiasts.

After the banquet, be sure you have brought your dancing shoes and stay around for a concert with Texas based singer/songwriter Max Stalling! This concert is brought to you by Lucky Mountain Ranch, Mike Davis; M7 Longhorns, Wayne & Joanna Manning; and G3 Ranch, Josh & Brittany Gentry.

HORN SHOWCASE FUTURITY

The TLBAA HSC Futurity is set up by age divisions to allow breeders the opportunity to exhibit the total package animals that represent their breeding operation.

• There is a 75% cash payout based on the class size. Payout will go to the top third of the class.

• Animals must be entered in at least one horn measurement contest.

• Animals will enter the ring based on age. Youngest to oldest. When the animal being exhibited walks into the ring, the 5 judge panel will be given the animals DOB.

• A Horn Showcase female entry must have had at least one recorded TLBAA calf, be nursing a calf at side or be confirmed bred by 36 months of age by palpation, ultrasound or BioPRYN blood test conducted 60-days past breeding and be so noted on a health certificate signed by a veterinarian and furnished to the show office.

SATELLITE AWARD WINNER

An award will be given to the host of the satellite who has the most animals measured at their location that are NOT owned by the satellite host. Animals that are owned in partnership by the host do not count.

It will be decided by number of measurement entries, not by number of animals.

As an example, an animal entered and measured for composite will count three times.

GET OF SIRE AND PRODUCE OF DAM

• Get of Sire and Produce of Dam will each offer a Junior Division and a Senior Division.

• Each Division is based on the age of the offspring of the animal entered. The Junior Division consists of offspring between the ages of two and five years of age. The Senior Division consists of offspring six years and older.

• Sires must have three offspring in any (Jr. or Sr.) Division to compete in that Division. All offspring must be measured in TTT, TH & Composite.

• Dams must have two offspring in any (Jr. or Sr.) Division to compete in that Division. All offspring must be measured in TTT, TH & Composite.

• Both living and deceased bulls and cows can be entered since entries are based on measurements of offspring.

• Scoring for each animal will be computed by adding the values of TTT, TH and Composite of all three offspring for a bull or both offspring for a cow. The bull or cow with the highest value of the total added measurements amongst offspring will be the winner.

• Animals do not need to be present to compete in this class – can be measured at a satellite or in .

• Only breeding animals (Bulls or Cows) can compete as offspring.

• Offspring may be produced by natural breeding, artificial insemination or embryo transfer.

• With the 5 judge panel, the high score and the low score will be thrown out and the remaining three judges will be added together for the final score. In the event of a tie there will be a tie breaker judge selected in advance. That judge’s score will be the tie breaker in the event of a tie.

• Animals must measure in at least one measurement class to participate in Futurity as well as be eligible for a Superior Award.

ULTIMATE COW & BULL AWARD

• One bull and one female will be chosen based on popular vote.

• Animals must be present in Oklahoma City to be eligible.

• Ballots will be available at the TLBAA desk during the event for voting.

HORN SHOWCASE SUPERIOR AWARD

This innovative award showcases our most elite animals that possess the total package we all strive for. To achieve the Superior Award, animals are required to compete in the horn measurement contest, as well as be judged on conformation in the Horn Showcase Futurity.

To be win the Superior Award, an animal must place first in both a measurement class and their Futurity class.

Winners will have a trophy mailed to them after the event.

BULL ALLEY

• Bulls must be TLBAA A.I. certified and have an A.I. certified number to sell semen and participate in most straws sold.

• Bulls that are living must be present in Oklahoma City; deceased bulls may be entered for semen sales only. (Deceased bulls may have their offspring on site to represent them)

• Each owner should bring a semen tank with semen for sale or have semen sent to Champion Genetics. Must have 50 straws minimum available. If less than 50 straws available, seller must pay shipping to buyer.

• No minimum straw purchases allowed.

• Bulls must be entered in a measurement class.

• All semen sales are subject to a 7% commission.

June 15-17, 2023 • Belton, TX

For this year’s Texas Longhorn World Expo, the Las Vegas theme of “We’re All In”, had everyone keeping the entries strong once again. Moving the event one week earlier gave us all hope the Texas summer heat would stay away but the soaring temperatures decided to join in the party as well. The week included something for everyone and resulted in many smiling faces.

The barns were busy Wednesday with cattle arriving, people checking in and everyone settling in. The TLBT youth got their first taste of competition that afternoon with a livestock judging contest and everyone got together that evening for a chance to eat and wind down at the barn party.

Thursday, the TLBT Youth kicked off with a group photo and show ring procedure meeting and then rolled into a full day of competition in the ring. Youth Judge Victor Guerra and the show ring volunteers kept the day rolling smoothly. At the end of the day, Guerra had nothing but praise for the animals

The total entries were strong with over 910 which while a little lower than last year, was still a very strong showing by TLBAA membership:

• 910 Total Entries • 573 Head of Cattle

• 467 Youth Entries – including 57 Minis for the first year of qualifying in the youth

• 208 Open Haltered Entries • 46 Non-Haltered Entries

• 92 Futurity Entries • 34 Trophy Steer Entries

• 97 Miniature Entries

he judged and the showmen bringing them in the ring. The National Youth show was held in honor of longtime TLBAA member, past Chairman of the Board, and TLBT supporter Brent Bolen who passed away at the end of 2022.

Friday dawned hot again with a full day of activities planned. The youth began their day with their Gold Merit competition, which included giving speeches and having their project books evaluated. In the ring, the Non-Haltered division was being presented to judge Brian Rogers and moved quickly. The TLBT met and voted on the new members for the TLBT Advisory Committee as well as electing their own new officers for the coming show year.

For the second year, the Texas Gold Futurity was held on Friday afternoon with each animal on display in front of the grandstand. Instead of being evaluated against each other in the show ring, these Longhorns were judged one at a time by class and scored against the judges’ ideal. Futurity

22 | August 2022 TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS TLBAA WorLd Expo

judges Amanda & Collin Hardcastle, Justin Rombeck, Cindy Schnuriger and Amanda Sears were up to the task of appraising the animals in this event.

The Senior Sale was an exciting event for both participants and spectators alike. Auctioneer Joshua Rush worked the crowd to raise a over $165,000 to go towards the future endeavors of the eighteen youth participating. You can find more information on the Senior sale in this issue.

A solemn moment followed the sale as those breeders who left us since last year’s World Expo were remembered. The riderless horse and beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace made the memorial moment special.

Before the Trophy Steer show, time was taken to honor longtime TLBAA member and breeder Kenn Harding who brought his Rafter H cattle to many trophy steer and non-haltered shows through the years. Dr. Harding passed away earlier this year. When the gates opened, it was time for a crowd favorite, especially for those visiting new to Longhorns - the Trophy Steer show. When those older steers all gather in the ring it is a sight to behold. Judges Cori Garcia, Justin Rombeck and Dean Whitlock had both the enviable and difficult task of deciding on the top Trophy Steers.

The last day of competition saw the adults take to the ring along with the youth for the Open Haltered Show. From young heifers to older bulls, judge Joe Mask had a lot quality animals to evaluate. Although a long day, a tired but happy crowd headed to the banquet.

The banquet was a perfect wrap for the weekend, with good food, fellowship, a fun silent and live auction with lots of items to bid on and many awards presented. The banquet theme of Las Vegas brought a festive atmosphere to the evening. The TLBAA World Expo concluded with many of the TLBT and adults taking to the dance floor with our deejay rolling out the dance numbers.

Although we all fought the extra hot temperatures, We can’t wait for 2023 and what it may bring to the Longhorn World!

WIC She’s A Daisy Wins World For Third Time In A Row

When the planets align, good things are said to occur. To reflect on the year 2020, it might be difficult to think past the events that were happening in our world, but there were plenty of good things occurring, regardless of the negativity that may have been hovering. At this conjunction, on some red dirt, country acreage near the 1899 town of Tuscola, TX, a good thing did occur. It was the birth of a red and white Texas longhorn heifer, a heifer that would forever be a blessing to a couple of empty nesters.

Raising a world champion in any breed of any species is tricky. It is not impossible, but the odds of getting it just right are not favorable. First, having faith and confidence in your gut feeling is a prerequisite. There is a lot of experience, knowledge, and immeasurable wisdom that goes into it, as well. To state that “nothing happens overnight” is a moot point. It takes generations of breeding to finally reach the point of satisfaction in a livestock program.

In this story, one heifer can change the trajectory of a breeding program. With that being said, the heifer would need to be paired with a bull that compliments her genetics for the ultimate cross of the highly anticipated calf. Indeed, it did occur.

So, let’s back-up a few years. For a person to dive into the show cattle industry, it takes an enormous amount dedication. That is exactly what Catherine Morris wanted; something to fill the void. Already with a love for Texas longhorn cattle, Catherine and her husband, Randy, decided to become owners of these beautiful and unique animals. They had always enjoyed raising livestock show animals with their children. They hauled their kids and their projects many miles to compete in jackpots and livestock shows racking up countless wins. Then, just like kids do, they grew up and were headed out on their own paths. By 2012, there was an itch to put some animals back into their lives and that is exactly what they did.

It all started with a photo, then a conversation with a breeder, and just like that, they were back in the livestock business. However, Texas longhorns were new to them. When Catherine saw a picture of PLR Deacon, the inner desire was fueled and the rest is history. She said, “I hadn’t had that much experience with cattle, but being naïve, I thought, sure, I can do this!”

After meeting the owners, Suzanne and Alan Perry of Pearl Longhorn Ranch, Catherine and Randy decided that this project would be something that they could do together for years to come. Forming successful relationships with quality breeders was a goal that has helped shape the herd that the Morris’ have now. Building good relations with reputable breeders, listening to respected judges, and using their own” recipe” for success in feeding and caring for livestock was the perfect mix for longevity in an industry that is ever changing with new pedigree lines and fresh, young animals each season.

Fast forward to 2017. The Walking in Clover (WIC) owners, Randy and Catherine Morris, decided to bring in some new bloodlines to their growing herd. They had set up a meeting with the Sanddollar Ranch to look at some heifer prospects. One stood out to Catherine right away that may have been overlooked by others. She had a solid red hide with a white switch, a keen head, a beautiful eye, and amazing conformation. The couple, now five years into the Texas longhorn industry, decided to

purchase the weanling heifer named Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn with hopes that she would make a good show calf and an even better dam.

When it was time for Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn aka Jaclyn, to start producing, Catherine had just the bull and he was already in her show string. HI-5’s Sharpshooter…aka Scooter was admired in the showring by the judges and that confirmed the idea to use him for Jaclyn’s first calf. The combination was a success with her having a beautiful deep red and white heifer with a gentle mind and good structure.

As Catherine studied the bulls being shown and reached out to yet another reputable breeder, George and Cindy Dennis. Catherine decided to take a chance on a handsome weanling bull named HD Hornet. He had flash, build, color, and just something about him that stood out. The January 2018 bull was delivered to the Morris’ at the 2018 TLBAA World Show and where he was led around by the kids and his kind demeanor was instantly loved and appreciated.

In rolls 2019 and no one knew what lay ahead of us. Randy and Catherine had yet another year under their belt of successfully raising and showing longhorns but like any good breeder, they were always looking to improve and rise to the occasion with even better stock for next year. Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn was paired with HD Hornet and the wait was on.

By May 2, 2020, WIC She’s A Daisy graced the Morris’ with her presence. Instantly, Randy and Catherine knew she was “some kind of special.” Daisy hit the ground with a look any cattle raiser would like to see; healthy, great conformation, amazing cover, and an appetite. Jaclyn was a caring dam with a milk supply that seemed endless. Daisy grew fast and proved early on that she had qualities about her that caught the eye of many judges. Even as she grew, got weaned, and went through her juvenile age, she never quit attracting attention at the shows. In 2021 as a yearling, WIC She’s a Daisy, won her first of three consecutive World Championships at the Texas Longhorn Expo. She ultimately became the 2021, 2022, & 2023 TLBAA Haltered Female World Champion, the 2021 TLBT National Youth Grand Champion Female and 2022 & 2023 TLBT National Reserve Grand Champion Female. Daisy along with her younger sister, WIC Miss Maizie, helped their dam, Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn, win the TLBAA World Show Produce of Dam 2023. Back in 2022, Daisy, along with her older, halfsister, WIC Saffron (2022 TLBT National Youth Grand Champion Female), helped their dam, Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn, win the Produce of Dam. To date, three-year-old Daisy has accumulated twenty-seven grand championships and nine reserve grands but, her best accomplishment is two beautiful calves, a bull (2022 WIC Next Big Deal) and a heifer (2023 WIC Lilly Rose).

Sanddollar Safari Jaclyn’s dam, Sanddollar Safari Girl, is currently in a partnership with Randy and Catherine Morris and Braylin Miller (TLBT member). With Daisy, having her second calf (it’s a heifer), the future looks bright for the four generations of beautiful females. It’s all about setting goals and fulfilling dreams, but to take that a step further is to pay it forward. Passing on the torch will bring a whole new generation into the industry and with the right tools to continue with great quality cattle that the breed can be proud of.

Message Presidents

Congratulations TLBT on an amazing 2023 World Show! As I looked around the banquet Saturday evening, I saw a room filled with friends cheering for each other, celebrating a successful season and enjoying the fellowship. The World Show Banquet is definitely one of my favorite events each year. My favorite thing about the 2023 World Show this year had to be my time in the ring. We all spend so much time feeding, halter breaking, grooming and bonding with our cattle and walking them into the huge arena at the World Show is our stage. I definitely love exhibiting my cattle. For the 2023-2024 show season, I am looking forward to visiting some new shows, fulfilling my TLBT Presidential duties and spending one last year with all of you.

The 2022-2023 TLBT show season will always be filled with special memories for me and other members of the TLBT Board. Jackson Grace led the TLBT Board in great team building activities and discussions at Camp Tyler last summer. The TLBT Board voted to name The Senior Source as their service project for the year and we successfully raised $1,200 plus donations of health supplies (shampoo, body wash, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc). In addition, the Board voted to raise funds under the new campaign “Building A Brighter Tomorrow”. The TLBAA Horn Showcase and Eddie Woods Sale participants rallied to help the TLBT raise $3,300.

The TLBT is better for Jackson’s leadership and he will be missed both in the ring and out. We wish him the best on this new chapter of his life at Mississippi State University! He’s left some big boots to fill, so here we go!

TLBT Officer/Director Camp will be held at Camp Grady Spruce, the YMCA Camp at Possum Kingdom Lake. We have a motivated and eager TLBT Board and we can’t wait to get your ideas implemented! Watch the TLBT section of the monthly TRAILS magazine for information about our service project, fundraisers and other events throughout the year. This month, you meet your newly elected TLBT Board - reach out to any of us with ideas and suggestions. We represent all the TLBT and we can’t wait to spend time with you at shows!

Sheridan Van Blarcom Reporter

1. My favorite thing about the 2023 World Expo was the atmosphere. I love visiting with other individuals in this industry, and making new connections.

Elmer Parker Lifetime Award

Lifetime Devotion to the Texas Longhorn Breed and Its Breeders

The Elmer Parker Lifetime Award honors those members, who have been dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Longhorn breed, qualities that Parker was known for.

This award is named after Elmer Parker, who was a longtime employee and manager of the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge Longhorn herd. Parker joined the sta at the Refuge in 1946, learning from the previous Longhorn managers: Earl Drummond, Heck Schrader and Joe Bill Lee. In 1968, he took over the responsibilities of the Longhorns at the Refuge and continued until his retirement in 1981. Thus, the continuity of Longhorn expertise at the Refuge continued for more than half a century.

The Parker Brown color designation on Longhorn registrations was named after Elmer Parker – the dark brown, almost black color, with lighter dorsal stripe, was one of his favorite colors.

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS

The Dave Evans Breeder of the Year Award

The Dave Evans Breeder of the Year Award is given to individuals who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of Texas Longhorn cattle through their breeding program.

This award is named after native Texan, Dave Evans, who entered the Texas Longhorn industry in 1977, establishing the Yellow Pine Ranch at Cuchara, CO. He and his wife, Billicarole, quickly became enthusiastic about the breed and additional ranches were purchased to supplement the original ranch.

Evans served on the Board of Directors of both the TLBAA and the Mountain & Plains Texas Longhorn Association. He also served terms as TLBAA Vice-President. He was a founding partner and host of the Colorado National Texas Longhorn Sale, a record-breaking event when it started in 1981, which continued to be one of the industry’s major events for many years.

From the start, Evans realized the necessity of using the best bulls available in the breed in order to develop a top herd. His goal was to breed for consistent size as well as correctness and outstanding horns. He purchased Texas Ranger Jr. in 1980, and then Dixie Rebel and Major Investment. In 1986, Evans acquired CT Spoty Ruler, the bull he considered to be the best he’d ever owned.

Before his untimely death, Evans had succeeded in breeding a herd of Texas Longhorns that were well recognized in the breed. It is therefore a significant honor to be a recipient of this award, named in honor of this dedicated Longhorn breeder.

Protein

Supplements for Mature, Dry Forages

In fall and winter, most forages are low in protein (unless fall rains have stimulated new growth), yet many stockmen try to extend grazing as long as possible because winter feeding is usually the most expensive part of raising cattle. Adding a little protein supplement to mature, dry pastures is generally cheaper than feeding hay.

Adequate protein level in ruminant diets is crucial for optimal microbial function. Rumen microbes are key to unlocking complex carbohydrates in dry standing forage. Cattle can lose body condition on dry fall pastures, at a time when they should be building reserves in preparation for winter and next spring’s calving. Without protein supplementation on mature, dry pasture, the rumen cannot adequately digest low-

quality forages. Protein supplements, whether supplied with alfalfa hay, cake, blocks or tubs, or by-products like distillers’ grains, can help improve digestion of low-quality forages.

The first thing that happens when a ruminant is short on protein is that feed intake goes down, according to Beef and Forage Specialist Barry Yaremcio (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry). Cattle can’t eat enough forage to maintain themselves, so they lose weight. “With a protein supplement we are feeding the microbes. The microbes break down feed components into the basic parts—sugars and amino acids--and then the animals build everything back for what they need,” he explains.

If you provide more nitrogen (protein) to the microbes so they multiply more, they also digest feed bet-

crude protein greater than 20 percent and digestibility of 70 percent to 80 percent. The dropping forms around whatever is beneath it, with little shape of its own. Also, notice the dark green color. The high-quality forage is typically associated with cool-season winter forages such as small grains or ryegrass.

Nutrient (protein and energy) availability exceeds the cattle’s requirements for maintenance, growth or lactation.

This dropping indicates a forage crude protein level between 10 percent and about 17 percent and a digestibility of 61 percent to 67 percent.

Notice the slight crater-like appearance in the surface of this sample. In the 10 percent to 13 percent crude protein range, small folds may be present in the dropping. Supplementation, or the addition of protein and energy to the diet, is not required for mature cows. Forage, which creates droppings like this, should support 1 pound to 1.5 pounds average daily gain on heifers and steers.

This dropping indicates a forage crude protein level between 6 percent and 9 percent. Digestibility is from 58 percent to 63 percent; a slight overlap with the crude protein level of 10 percent to 17 percent. At this forage quality level, a dropping exhibits flat folds. As forage quality increases within this range, the folds become smaller. This dropping indicates that forage quality is adequate to supply maintenance requirements for mature cows. Minimal weight gain in replacement heifers and stocker cattle should be expected.

ter and it goes through the digestive tract faster. The animal can then eat more, process more, and get more benefit from it.

Ken Olson, PhD, Extension Beef Specialist, South Dakota State University, says that whenever forage is deficient in protein, a supplement is needed. “The key number is 7% crude protein. In general, the requirement for a cow, even for a mid-gestation dry cow whose calf is weaned, is a little higher than that, but we are meeting the requirement for rumen microbes, so they can digest the forage. That’s our first need, before we worry about the cow,” he says. If we meet the requirements of the rumen microbes, they will provide for maintenance requirements of the cow.

“If protein level in forage falls below 7% it starts limiting microbial fermentation in the rumen; we can’t grow a large enough population of microbes to get the job done.” Digestion slows, food moves through slower, and the cow can’t eat as much.

“Low digestibility reduces feed intake. The big question is; what’s the protein level in the forage the cattle are selecting? That question is nearly impossible to answer, on pasture. Cattle are selective grazers, so if we clip a sample of forage to ground level, we have a sample that is poorer in protein content than what they are eating. Our estimate gets closer by observing what the cows are actually eating then by hand-plucking a sample of plants,” Olson says.

Many of the native cool season grasses in western and northern states can be good fall and winter pasture just by themselves, without a protein supplement. They have more nutrients in their mature, dormant state than most tame grasses do. Some native forbs and shrubs

This cattle dropping indicates a forage crude protein level of 5 percent or less and digestibility at or below 56 percent. Notice the distinct rings in the lower right portion of the dropping. These rings tend to be firm.

Droppings such as this tend to stack, however, stacking without the distinct hard rings is not characteristic of this forage quality level. This dropping indicates that forage is below the maintenance requirements for all classes of beef cattle. Forage digestibility and intake may increase with protein supplementation.

(like winterfat/white sage) make good winter forage; winterfat contains 10% crude protein.

“To know whether forages are protein-deficient, watch cow body condition, and observe feces. You don’t need to send samples for analysis; just see how moist/fluid or dry the feces are. When cattle are on lush green feed and manure is loose and liquid this is a sign of excess protein.” The material is digested quickly--traveling through the digestive tract too fast, with some waste of nutrients.

“If manure is really firm and makes a pile that stacks up, this is a sign of protein deficiency,” says Olson. There is not enough protein to digest forage efficiently and keep things moving through at proper pace. If protein level is where it should be, manure will be moist and loose but not liquid. Moisture content and consistency of feces is probably the best indicator of forage quality, along with body condition. If cattle start losing weight, they are probably protein-deficient.

Grazing management plays a role, and can minimize need for supplements. “In the fall with good management, protein may be adequate for rumen microbes. As we go into winter, with forage in complete dormancy, we probably need supplement,” he says.

“It’s amazing how well cattle can do when you first put them into a new ungrazed dormant pasture. At first they are selecting a diet high enough in protein that they don’t need a protein supplement, but the longer they stay in that pasture, the less protein they are getting. The pasture is dormant (no regrowth), so every day the cattle are there they are taking whatever is best of what’s left. As time goes on, protein content in remaining forage becomes less. Thus grazing manage-

ment (such as rotating to new pastures) can do a lot in terms of improving protein status of cattle, even on dormant pastures,” he says.

Young stock that are still growing (stockers or replacement heifers), have higher requirements than dry cows that just need to maintain themselves. “Another thing to consider with young stock is that they are not full size; their rumen is not yet full size or fully developed, and their ability to ferment large enough amounts of low-quality forages is less. They can’t hold as much, and their ability to ferment a lot without the help of protein isn’t up to speed yet,” says Olson. They may need more than a dry cow.

“This can be partially addressed with grazing management. Let the young stock graze a pasture first, to meet their higher requirement, then let cows clean up after them. In that case, the cows may need a protein supplement,” he explains.

WHAT KIND OF SUPPLEMENT?

“What you choose often depends on cost of highprotein feeds in your area. Here in the Dakotas and upper Midwest where we have ethanol plants, distillers’ grains are often our most economical source of protein,” says Olson. In western states, alfalfa hay is often the most cost-efficient protein unless cattle are on mountain pasture where you can’t haul hay to them, or on a Forest Service or BLM allotment where they don’t allow feeding hay unless it’s certified weed-free.

“Some producers use pelleted alfalfa, which should destroy viability of any weed seeds. Dehydrated alfalfa pellets are usually 17 to 18% crude protein,” he says. Pellets can often be more easily transported to mountain pastures than alfalfa hay.

Tim McAllister, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada/ Agriculture, Lethbridge Research and Development Centre, Lethbridge, Alberta says it’s important to find the cheapest protein source you can supply, with the conditions and facilities on your farm or ranch. “Distillers grains are a good protein source, but typically a mash or in pelleted form. You need to figure out how to feed it on pasture without a lot of waste. If your only option is to feed it on the ground there will be significant waste,” he says.

Sometimes a good quality mixed alfalfa/grass hay can be more easily fed. Alfalfa can be fed every other day or every third day, which can lower your cost. “You don’t want to overfeed protein, to the point where what we call substitution starts to take place. Protein can be used as an energy source by cattle, but it’s a very expensive form of energy. We don’t want cattle to just be eating the supplement and not grazing the lower-quality forage that we stockpiled for them to utilize,” McAllister says. The dominant animals eat more than their share of the protein unless they are limited in consumption.

“This is why we have to monitor, and use strategies like alternate day feeding, etc. Ruminants are extremely efficient in utilizing nitrogen, and can recycle some of the nitrogen consumed the previous day and use it the next day and recycle it back to the rumen, and the microbes can still utilize it,” he says.

There are many kinds of supplements. “Find the highest quality protein for the least amount of money. Often by-product feeds are a good choice (if available). If you don’t have to transport them very far and have a way to feed them to minimize waste, these work very well,” McAllister says.

Along with cost of the product, look at the cost of freight and delivery, and also figure out what it will cost to take it to the cattle. You can’t deliver hay to cattle on a distant pasture in terrain you can only traverse with a horse or 4-wheeler. You might be able to haul pellets or lick tubs on a 4-wheeler. “Sometimes you can’t worry about the economics and simply have to go with what is feasible for your situation,” says Olson.

Lick tubs can work, if cattle don’t over-eat or undereat. “With young stock, it can be a challenge to get them to use tubs. They may not consume enough, whereas some of the older cows will just stay there and eat from the tubs and won’t go graze. You need to monitor cattle and know what they are doing and their rate of consumption. You want to know how many days it takes for them to empty the tubs, and how many cows, so you can calculate how many pounds per cow per day—to get a sense of whether they are eating enough to meet their requirements, or over-eating,” he says.

You may need multiple tubs at each site, so several cattle can use them at once. Otherwise dominant older cows may consume most of the protein and keep timid ones away from it. It’s never a perfect situation, and it takes time and effort to manage supplement. You can’t just haul it out and forget about it; you need to know how the cattle are utilizing (or not utilizing) it.

Beef To Market: Utilize the Three E’s

A longhorn beef program is a wonderful way to profit on your “bottom end” cattle.

In my past articles I have highlighted some of the challenges of longhorn specific beef programs, naturally.

Well good news, marketing longhorns and longhorn beef can be pretty easy!

Ok, “easy” might not be the exact word I’m looking for, but what I mean is Longhorn cattle are natural attention grabbers. Who doesn’t take pause at a big, colorful beast, with huge horns sticking out of the side of their head? Yes, I’m still talking cattle, not the book of Revelation.

There are several different ways you can use the natural striking physique of the Texas Longhorns in your marketing strategy.

I have talked in the past about leaning into our differences instead of shying away from them… Well, here’s your chance!

There is no doubt that in the last decade or so, social media has taken over as possibly the single largest advertising platform in the world. If you choose to use it that way.

I personally have grown the Instagram account for the ranch I manage, Hidden Springs Ranch (@hiddenspringsranch) to over 61,000 followers in the last two years. That’s a lot of eyeballs on our program!

While it can be in poor taste to post cute pictures of calves and pictures of medium rare ribeyes back to back, there is certainly a way to do both tastefully. No pun intended. The number one thing I recommend to folks in the AG industry, who ask me about such things is this: You need a DEDICATED social media page for your ranch or farm.

Make it nice to look at, and post on it consistently!

However, having an online presence is not enough! Remember when I bragged about instagram followers? Well I will go ahead and tell you, 60,000 social media followers is not 60,000 customers. In fact, it may be very few. So, what’s the trick? Engaging with those people! Each “like” is an actual human being. So, it’s important to have engaging content that people find valuable, and when they express interest they aren’t shouting into the void of the internet, but you are there to respond to them with a “how can I help you” or maybe just a “thank you”.

What does this have to do with beef?

The best way to describe it is with the three E’s. Entertainment, Education, E-commerce.

If your social media is educational and entertain-

ing them you can utilize it to draw people’s attention to your commerce. In this case we are talking about beef.

It is also important to make sure that you have the systems in place to accommodate those potential customers once you have their attention. Meaning make the transition from potential customer to customer as simple as possible.

This could be an online store, routing people to your website, a well monitored email or phone number. However you choose to catch those sales, make it simple for the customer. In the world of Amazon and Walmart, people have little patience for complicated purchasing systems.

So, that’s my basic advice on social media advertising. Is that the only way to advertise beef?

Of course not.

We still use the tried and true methods of flyers in local feed stores, brochures on tables wherever they will let us put them.

We also set up at the Farmers Market every weekend.

The farmers market is likely the most time consuming, but also the most consistent form of selling Longhorn beef that we utilize. For one it gives our online customers another location to pick up their beef.

The main advantage is that we get to set up in a place where the customers come to us.

The resurgence of farm to table and self-sufficiency is real, and those types of folks frequent farmers markets. So the idea of locally raised, grass fed Longhorn beef is very appealing to them.

We can apply the same methods that we use online when setting up our market booth. I have a huge 80+ inch twisty horned cow skull right out front on my table. With cuts and prices on either side. Talk about an attention grabber!

Many days we are the most popular booth just on curiosity alone. Once folks come over to ask me if the skull is real, or to explain to their girlfriend how it’s a “big bull skull” I get the opportunity to speak with them about the benefits of Longhorn beef!

Most people try something, and most people return the next week for more!

Farmers markets are full of folks looking for the next great natural ingredient to put on their families supper table! It just so happens the next great thing has been around for about 400 years.

Building a customer base is hard work, but there are more tools at our disposal now than maybe ever before! Let’s use them!

THE LONGHORN MEMORIES OF US!

One of the many great joys of working for TLBAA that I get to experience when attending longhorn events is the wonderful stories that are told to me by our members about our association’s past, our history and their personal experiences with the association, other members and our magnificent longhorn cattle. Believe me, I have heard it all, from funny stories to the most sad and horrific antidotes, all true, and I’m sure some stretching it a wee bit, not so true!

Sadly, as the years speed by and as we get calls and emails at the office informing us of the passing of one of our members to the big longhorn pasture in the sky, I have come to realize that this integral and meaningful part of our association’s and our member’s history, our stories, both good and bad, both true and not so true, is being lost because we are not capturing it or writing it down. What a sad loss this is to our association, our longhorn family and future generations.

I want to start capturing this wonderful history before it is too late and we lose these dear memories as our association ages. I need your help! Each of you have your stories, antidotes and memories and I want you, both young and old, to share them with me and with TLBAA.

I propose capturing this history in written form from you, hand written, typewritten or electronic emails, I don’t care. Send them to me, I will then enter them into a master document called “The Longhorn Memories of Us”! This collection of our history and stories will be posted on our website for all to read. For those who prefer to hold paper or don’t use computers, we will print it out for you, just ask. This will be a continuing, infinite working document that we and future

generations will add to. These “Memories” will never end .... as memories are made everyday! Important points:

• TLBAA will not be responsible for personal versions of events or for our member’s memories of events

• All members, adults and youth may submit their Memories

• Memories will be accepted in hand written, typewritten and (preferred) in electronic/email format

• Memories will be categorized and separated by association years, starting with 1964 (our Association’s birth year) and each year thereafter moving forward into the future. Each year that the memory occurs in will be separate and added to the document year as the stories come into the office. For example if you have a memory from 1988 or 2023, send it in and it will be added to the year section 1988 or 2023! They do not have to be in year order.

• Memories will only be edited for typos and for negative and/or inappropriate content: inappropriate, negative content or personal attacks will not be accepted!

• Memories must include member name, and/or ranch name if any

• Members may submit multiple Memories

I hope that you are as excited about this project to capture our history as I am and I look forward to working with each of you! For questions or submissions, just contact me. I can’t wait to get started!

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS August 2023 | 81

Bony and Soft Tissue “Lump Jaw” in Cattle

There are two kinds of “lump jaw” in cattle. Softtissue abscesses due to wounds in the mouth and embedded foreign bodies like sharp grass seeds are easy to treat by lancing, draining and flushing, but a bone infection takes diligent efforts to eradicate and treatment may not be successful.

Dr. Bill Lias (Interstate Vet Clinic, Brandon, SD) says the bone infections usually involve the lower jaw but occasionally occur on the upper jaw. The causative agent is a bacterium called Actinomyces bovis. The technical term for this bacterial infection is Actinomycosis. Since these bacteria live in the soil and are present in the environment, there must be some kind of penetrating wound in the mouth.

A mouth wound could be caused by anything sharp, such as wire (pieces of wire or other foreign material baled up in the feed), chewing on sticks or eating abrasive feed. When there are multiple cases on one farm, it’s usually due to coarse feed, or sharp material in the feed.

Bacteria invade through the lesions, and get into the bone. Thus it’s usually a deeper or more penetrating wound than what typically causes a soft tissue abscess. The signs of bony lump jaw show up after the infection gets going in the bone.

The infection and inflammation results in a bony enlargement, usually in the area of the central molars. Some of these lumps develop within a few weeks, while others enlarge slowly over several months. Unless treated, the bony infection continues, and the lump keeps getting bigger. It may eventually break through the skin and discharge a little sticky fluid through one or more openings.

Lias say the ongoing infection may eventually damage the teeth in that area of the jaw. Affected teeth may become loose and the animal has trouble chewing. Generally it affects the cheek teeth. It can sometimes affect the top bone of the jaw where the top teeth are located—but it usually it occurs in the bottom jawbone. There is a large, slow-growing, firm mass of bone.

Bacteria may enter the bone through the dental sockets when young animals are shedding baby teeth, when the permanent molars are starting to come in. “This may be why the condition is seen most often in young cattle, such as 2 and 3 year olds. When baby teeth are being shed, the sockets may be exposed to injury (as from sharp material in the feed) before the new teeth are fully erupted to fill those sockets. This is a site where stickers or other material may poke into them and create a route of entrance for

bacteria. Both kinds of bacteria (the ones that cause bony lump jaw and the ones that cause soft-tissue abscesses) reside in the cow’s mouth, and any mouth injury may give them opportunity to invade.”

Treatment is difficult. “There haven’t been any improvements or new treatments for bony lump jaw. The traditional use of sodium iodide solution, given IV is still one of the better treatments,” says Lias.

“Success of treatment hinges on how early this condition is detected. If you catch it early and treat it aggressively there is more chance for success. When there’s already a big bony lump it’s tough to halt the infection.”

The owner often wonders whether to treat the cow or sell her. If she’s pregnant they generally want to give her time to have that calf and raise it before they sell her. “Every situation is different. If it’s a young cow and she’s in good shape when you noticing the early signs, she’d be a good candidate to treat. If she’s had 10 calves and has a large, advanced swelling and bony lump on the jaw, you might not want to bother with treatment and just salvage her. You let her raise one more calf if she hasn’t lost too much weight,” he says.

SOFT TISSUE LUMPS

Abscesses in soft tissue are more common, and generally caused by other bacteria, including Actinobacillus, which is sometimes associated with wooden tongue. “Treatment is more successful in these infections. If the animal has a soft tissue abscess you can lance and drain it and the infection will clear up,” says Lias.

Systemic antibiotics are generally not needed because it’s a local infection, but this particular bacterium is responsive to penicillin or tetracycline. “The main thing is to open up the abscess and establish drainage. There may be scarring--accumulation of granulation tissue and a residual small bump--but most cases clear up nicely,” he says. Sometimes the abscess will eventually break and drain on its own, but it will heal faster if you can lance and flush it out.

There’s not much you can do to prevent these lumps (except avoid weedy hay that contains sharp material like cheat grass seeds or foxtail awns). “Many types of feed can cause abrasions and damage the inner part of the mouth—the gums or cheek tissues, or teeth sockets. Any coarse feed could cause injury. In this part of the country we feed a lot of cornstalks and beanstalks, and there may be fibrous, tough material that could

Herd Health

puncture the inner parts of the mouth,” he explains.

Soft tissue abscesses may occur at any age. “We see lumps in baby calves if they are chewing on coarse feed, whereas bony lumps don’t appear until later in life—in 2-year-olds or older. One way to tell the difference is whether the lump is moveable in the soft tissue or firmly attached to the bone. The bony lump is hard and immobile—an enlargement of the bone itself—whereas the soft tissue abscess can be moved around under the skin,” he says.

“Often when you palpate those they have a softer center and you know there’s pus in there. This center can be lanced and drained. Restrain the animal in a headgate and tie the head off to the side so it can’t be moving around while you lance the abscess. If it is low on the jaw or in the throatlatch area you need to be very careful to not slice into vital structures like the jugular vein or carotid artery. If you haven’t done this before and are not comfortable with the procedure, have your veterinarian do it.” The incision should be made at the lower edge of the soft area, for best drainage, making a vertical slit (less likely to cut blood vessels than with a horizontal slice).

Make a long enough slit that will stay open for drainage. “The abscess needs to drain for several days; you don’t want it sealing over and getting big again. You need to be fairly aggressive in how much you open it up, or it will close up and you’ll have to do it again,” he says. This might be one reason to have your veterinarian do it if you aren’t experienced. Some people might be too cautious and not open it up enough for adequate drainage so it will stay open.

Some of these abscesses can become quite large, with a lot of pressure and a great deal of pus that will squirt out when you lance them. “After draining out the pus that comes readily, flush out the rest with a large syringe. I use a dilute solution of betadine— mixing it with warm water and squirting it into the opening. This will flush as much of the bacteria as possible out of there, and allow it to heal,” says Lias.

WOODEN TONGUE IS SOMETIMES MISTAKEN FOR LUMPY JAW

This is an infection in the tongue (from injury allowing bacteria to enter) caused by the same bacteria that cause soft-tissue abscesses. Some animals with wooden tongue develop multiple abscesses around the head and jaw. “In some instances a case of wood-

en tongue might be mistaken for lumpy jaw, because of the abscesses and difficulty eating,” says Lias. But if an animal with wooden tongue has abscesses they are just in the soft tissue. The animal has a very firm tongue and it’s difficult to move the tongue.

Wooden tongue affects the animal’s ability to eat. “Often you see the tip of the tongue protruding from the mouth because it is so swollen; the cow can’t pull it back in. Sometimes there will be drooling of saliva because the cow can’t keep her mouth closed. If you examine the cow, the tongue is very large and firm,” he says. Since a cow eats by pulling feed into her mouth with the tongue, she can’t eat very well with this condition and loses weight.

“Because the infection is in the soft tissue of the tongue (and not in bone), it can be treated with antibiotics. The organism is sensitive to either penicillin or tetracycline so these animals can be successfully treated, recover and do well. Something like LA-200 or LA-300 works well because you get longer coverage and don’t have to treat every day,” he says.
