EDITOR’S NOTES ONE AFTER ANOTHER

Where does time go? It does not seem like a full year since we did a World Show wrap-up edition, but here we are once again. It always amazes me when I type a child’s name whose parent I identified as a TLBT award winner years ago. I both love the continuity of a family carrying on the Longhorn tradition, and am saddened a little at how quickly time has passed. Now more than ever, with the busy lives we lead, planning is essential. When you hear about a sale or event and you think “I have plenty of time to get those entries/consignments in”, that’s when you need to go to the calendar and mark the deadline down and a reminder a week or two before it that it’s coming. That animal that you would like to consign, show or measure is going to change a lot in a year. You may not want to wait for it to come around again. That being said, entries for Horn Showcase measuring, futurity and bull/embryo alley are all due this month, August 15th. This issue is running a little behind so by the time you get it, your time is almost up to participate in the 2018 TLBAA Horn Showcase, the only measuring event this year. No more putting it off, get those forms downloaded or from Trails and get the information to us. Turn to pg. 39-43 for sponsorship opportunities and entry forms. We appreciate everyone who stepped up to participate, volunteer or just stop by to see what was going on at the TLBAA World Expo in Belton., TX. Turn to pg. 18 to take a look at the full wrap-up of this event. It continues to grow, and when we return to Belton next year we hope you will join us as a participant. You can also find information on how to nominate those deserving individuals in the Longhorn industry for a TLBAA Special Award or the TLBF Hall of Fame. You know you’re thinking of someone right now that deserves to be recognized. Nominate them. There’s no guarantee someone else will think of it. A new way to participate and have some fun is to enter that colorful 2018 calf you keep snapping pics of in the new Rodger Damrow Colorful Calf Contest. It is open to everyone and if yours is chosen as the winner, it will be featured on a Trails Magazine cover. See pg. 55 for more info. Just a reminder, if you’ve been a member for 3 years or less, please contact me for a set of questions for “Meet Our Members”. We would love to have a chance to get to know you and introduce you to your fellow Longhorn breeders. As always, if you have any ideas or news to share, please contact me.

Butler Breeders

Influential Butler Foundation Females THE LITTLE RED HEIFER THAT WROTE HER OWN PAGE IN HISTORY As Longhorn breeders, or just cattle breeders in general, we always are striving to produce the best cattle we can. Longhorns have come a long way from the early days through selective breeding. Many ranchers have spent a lifetime trying to continually improve and breed an animal that would catch the eye of the Longhorn world. Sometimes they accomplish it, but just maybe it has a little something to do with luck. The McLeod Ranch has been consistently producing some of the finest straight Butler cattle for over 40 years, and has a real passion for it. I would like to tell you the tale of one these cows that they produced. A cow of the type that we all strive to create in this sometimes great but gut-wrenching industry we call the OFFSPRING cattle business. On 3/13/1997 there was a little red Longhorn heifer born in the wee hours of the morning in the East pasture of the McLeod Ranch. She would go on to become known as Jackie Lynn 90. Measuring in the mid 70’s and weighing in right at a 1,000 lbs., she has produced some of our industry’s leading Butler offspring with many different Butler bulls. Over the years “90” has JACKIE LYNN 326 HUNTER MC 69 produced many colored-up daughters, all of which are in the 70’s themselves, and a daughter that measures 82” TTT and has also had a great granddaughter top the 2016 Butler Breeders Sale. Her son, Hunter MC 69, is a multiple Horn Showcase winner and, as it stands right now, is the biggest horned straight Butler bull in the industry, measuring in at 81” TTT. Even though “90” has slowed up a little in her golden years she is still JACKIE LYNN 538 JACKIE LYNN 404 producing into her twenties. As of today you can go to the McLeod Ranch to view “90” and her sons, grandsons, years ago, you could see “90”’s dam, Red Dot MC 447. all her daughters and most of her granddaughters, etc. Today her head is hanging high on a wall at the ranch. Yes, other than a few granddaughters out of Hunter and In conclusion Jackie Lynn 90 is one of those few maybe a couple of great granddaughters out of a Hunter cows that have out produced herself year after year son, Hunters Droopy MC 91, who is also making a name with every bull she has been paired with. Regardless of for himself, that have been sold at the Butler Sale, they whether it was a heifer or a bull calf, Michael McLeod do not sell these genetics very often. And, up until a few said it always had a chance to be something special.

JACKIE LYNN 90

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


By James Turner

STARS SHINING BRIGHT As cattle ranchers, we are always up against Mother Nature and the elements no matter what part of the country you are in. There is always one thing or another to deal with. For one rancher it’s the unforgiving environment of West Texas and its harsh elements — wild fires on drought stricken land, freak winter storms that have hurricane like winds, little critters or insects that want to sting or bite and every bush or tree has a thorn. But for an area that has its qualms, it also has a real beauty to it. After a long day of traveling the dusty roads of the Triple R Ranch, Robert and Kim Richey can always enjoy and soak in all of the beauty, including breathtaking sunrises and sunO sets and abundant wildlife on a rollF ing landscape. The Richey’s are one F of the great Butler Breeder’s in our S industry, and even though the terriP tory is not for the faint of heart, their R Longhorns have always thrived and I have become some of straight Butler N cattle’s brightest stars. G EVENING STAR BR3 LANTANA BR3 I would like to tell you about one of those “Stars” that has produced some of our industry’s leading offspring, - her name is Dark Star BR3. Born on 3/15/1997 somewhere in the vast territory of the Triple R, Dark Star would grow to become a very recognized name and eventually a whole line of cows. Dark Star would go on to top the FARLAP CHEX FIVE STAR BR3 2000 Butler Breeder’s Sale with a calf Currently owned by Rocking P Longhorns in her that would change the future of the Longhorn industry. His name was Farlap Chex. One of her daughters, Evening Star ler Breeder’s Sale — Dark Star’s great grandson DalgoodBR3, would follow her, topping the 2005 Butler Breed- BLC Kulik . As you can see, Dark Star genetics are highly sought er’s Sale. A granddaughter, Five Star BR3, that currently after and continues to live on through her phenomenal measures 83” TTT, followed suit in 2010. Amongst many other accomplishments the Dark gene pool. You can visit the Triple R and many other top Star line of cows would eventually out do themselves breeders today and see Dark Star’s genetics still shining again and produce the high selling bull in the 2013 But- bright.

TLBAA News

Welcome New Staff Members! If you attended the TLBAA World Expo then you’ve already seen our two newest staff members hard at work. Both Amelia and Pam joined us right before this major event and jumped right in to make it happen. We wanted to give them a chance to introduce themselves to all our members. AMELIA GRITTA - ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT Hi! My name is Amelia Gritta, I am the new Administrative Assistant at TLBAA. I received my Associates Degree from Tarrant County College here in Ft. Worth. I am also currently a stuAmelia Gritta, Administrative Assistant and Pam Robison, dent at the University of Texas at Arlington studying Business Management and Marketing. I love to visit state parks all over the Sales and Events Manager country and I take my sweet dog Ranger with me. I’m so excited to be here at the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and I look forward to meeting all of you! PAM ROBISON - EVENTS MANAGER Pam Robison comes to us after spending the last 17 years working for the National Cutting Horse Association as the Executive Assistant while also managing their annual Convention and organizing their exposure at off-site events. “I am excited to bring my experience here to the TLBAA and looking forward to learning another aspect of the livestock industry and agriculture world.” Robison previously worked in the Thoroughbred racing industry with stints at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie and on a major farm in Oklahoma. She is a graduate of Tarleton State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Horse Production & Management. Pam Robison is a native of Fort Worth and currently calls Crowley her home. A true animal lover, her home includes three horses and a herd of cats including many rescue cases. She has recently started competing with one of her cats and is aiming for a regional top ten placing in the household cat division for the coming show year.

H.O.R.N.S. 101 those pesky prefixes The H.O.R.N.S. system is a great tool for managing your herd and for research. It is amazing how fast and easy it is to register, transfer and maintain a herd from the comfort of your home. One thing that many forget when using the HORNS system is the use of “prefixes” in the registration number. When entering information many breeders only enter the numerical digits of the registration number, normally 6 digits for cows and 5 for bulls and steers. Those breeders using HORNS to register and transfer animals online have already found out that will not work….HORNS needs those pesky prefixes or it will “red flag” you and not let you proceed. You must enter the entire registration number including prefixes (eg. C, B CI, etc.) that are on the animal’s registration certificate! Also, HORNS will not take an ITLA registration number. The same happens if you manually fill out and send in your registrations and transfers without those prefixes. Staff must stop and manually look up each animal to verify its full registration number and prefixes which drastically slows down and stalls the registration and transfer process. PLEASE USE THOSE PESKY PREFIXES! Not on HORNS yet, call staff to set up your password! Access to the system is a benefit of your membership with the TLBAA. 16 | August 2018

Shows

New Location, Same Fun!

The Texas Longhorn Exposition featuring the TLBAA World Show, TLBT National Youth Show and the Texas Gold Futurity was held at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, TX June 27 - July 1, 2018. It was with great anticipation and a little nervousness that the event left its Fort Worth home of 30 years to a new venue. The new location was a success! Bell County Expo and Belton, TX, were welcoming hosts and the air conditioned pens sure didn’t hurt. With a hotel on site, plenty of space and all events under one roof, the new venue has resulted in positive feedback from participants and TLBAA staff as well. Those present got to see more than 470 Longhorns representing 184 owners for a total of 667 entries in the shows and futurity combined. The youth show is always a large part of the event, and this year was no exception. There were 322 entries with 113 youth participating in the ring. The youth had other opportunities to compete as well including Showmanship, Quiz Bowl, Gold Merit, Livestock Judging and Photography. This year the event included a general membership meeting which afforded an opportunity for TLBAA members to address their concerns with board members present. The event wrapped up Saturday evening with the awards banquet. Almost 300 people were in attendance to receive awards won during the three days of competition, as well as the Bright Futures Scholarships. It was a good ending to a great weekend with good food, good friends and lots of fun!

Marketing

By Myra Basham

Longhorn Events Provide Marketing Opportunities No Longhorn event is too small to provide affordable opportunities to market your program, no matter the market(s) you intend to target. From field days to fairs and sales to futurities, there is ample opportunity to expose others to the program you are working so hard to build. The easiest and cheapest thing to do? Show up! While participating in the event garners more exposure, simply being there and talking to people is a great first step and something that can be done by everyone. Time spent around the barns or arena striking up conversation can pay off in locating potential future customers. Longhorn breeders love getting to know one another.

barn visitors who are curious about the breed. Shows are a great place for exposing Longhorns to potential new owners. Check into shows in your area. If you do not have the time or desire to halter-break and show animals, let a youth do it for you. Many young people want the opportunity to show but do not have the resources to own or house a Longhorn. There are also non-haltered classes where the animals do not have to be halter broken. Entry fees and requirements vary, but the rewards are great. Another way to compete with animals more naturally is the futurity. These animals are not haltered and most come in straight out of the pasture (unless it is held in conjunction with a show). These competitions are a good indicator of how your animals stack up against others in the marketplace and can help show you where your program needs to improve. It also lets others see what your program is producing and spark interest. The Horn Showcase combines a horn measuring contest, futurity and a bull and donor cow spotlight to give exposure at a major event. It is the only place for people to gain official horn measurements and also brings together a large group of breeders and outside media and spectators as well.

Marketing - continued from pg. 38 a looping video of your Longhorns. People like to see the animals in their natural setting and learn more about you and your program. You can have flyers and cards available as well as a small takeaway gift such as a pen, candy, or keychain – inexpensive but memorable. While some people may be reluctant to approach you while you’re busy at the stall area, they know you are ready to discuss Longhorns when you are at an exhibit area. Becoming a sponsor at any type of event automatically gets you exposure at that event, usually over the loudspeaker and in the program book at a minimum. If it is an affiliate or association show, that exposure can broaden out into mentions on web sites, publications and social media. If the event is large enough there may even be outside media coverage. Everything mentioned so far is a form of advertising, but there will also be paid print advertising opportunities as well. Show programs and catalogs often offer advertising spots at very reasonable rates and will often build the ad for you. Trails magazine and other publications can serve as a resource to let people know they can find you at an event and showcase any animals participating. Publications take advanced planning, as their ad deadlines are usually at least a month out from the publication month – for example, if you want to advertise in September the ad deadline could be anywhere from July 1st to August 1st. E-blasts, whether sent out by the association or oth-

ers are a direct way to reach a targeted audience and let them know you’re participating and invite people to visit with you during the event. Inquire as to whether there will be a graphic or a link that will allow you to post it to your own social media. Costs can vary, but Trails offers e-blasts from $70-$95. If you contact someone about marketing via e-blast, always ask if it includes any form of social media exposure as well. For example, our eblasts automatically post to the association Facebook page and go out as a tweet from the TLBAA.

no matter how basic, marketing is essential to attract buyers for your cattle. Social media such as Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram can quickly let people who follow you know that you’ll be at an event. Encourage folks to come visit with you. You can even put a mention on the front page of your website so any traffic from people curious about the breed know they could meet you and see the event as well. Everyone is in a different place with their program and their budget. That means there is not a one-sizefits-all solution to marketing. Start with the basics and then venture out into avenues that are effective for you and bring good return on investment. No matter how good your program is, people have to know about it to be interested.

Longhorn Beef

Beef Committee Report on 2018 Survey Earlier this year, the TLBAA Beef Committee developed a set of survey questions to help identify key data points to find the current and potential growth of producers, buyers, availability of supply and markets. The survey was sent out via email with the E-Blast service from the association and links were shared through social media pages associated with Longhorn breeders and was open to the public for 15 days. At the time of this writing there were a total of 200 responses with 168 fully completing the survey, and 32 partially answered.

Breeder/Producer A surprising result emerged in showing the number of years Longhorn breeders have been in the Longhorn industry. The current understanding was that the majority of breeders will last less than 5 years in the industry before having to change breeds due to lack of revenue, health, or financial situation.  The survey shows an even spread of breeders across the years of breeding, with most of the responses being in the industry over 11 years (42% / 83 responses), followed by new breeders (32% / 63 responses), and the fewest was the intermediate which spanned between 5-10 years breeding Longhorns (25% / 51 responses).   These results show that the initial belief that the majority of breeders only last the first four years was false, but there is concern that the retention rate for 5-10 years is too low.  New ideas for retention of these breeders in this year range must be found to continue to have health of the entire Longhorn herd.

Longhorn Processing We also saw a high percentage rate of breeders who have sent animals to be processed, far higher than anyone expected (68% / 133 out of 196). Granted, we can infer that most of the people who responded to the survey were already vested in some sort of beef program, but this can be counteracted by those who stated they were planning to send at least one animal to be processed in the near future (16%/31 out of 196 responses). The results of the survey show there is a market for an association beef program in the Longhorn industry.  According to the survey, 42% (82 out of 194 responses) stated that they already have some sort of beef program in their breeding stock.   When the question was asked to breeders if they have ever considered sending cull longhorns to be processed to help make a new revenue stream, we saw many said yes (46% / 90 responses out of 194), showing that there is a potential growth of beef producers in the Longhorn industry. With this potential growth available and the number of breeders already in some sort of beef program, there is a great revenue potential for a full beef program that can be self sustained in the industry.

Education The beef committee knew coming into this project that there was a lack of education when it came to Longhorns and the beef industry. With that in mind, we simply asked what avenues of education would best suit the needs of the beef producer. With several options given, there was a small difference between the two top answers.  The top avenue given was education through articles (41% / 63 out of 155 responses) and Webinars (34% / 52 out of 155 responses). After these top two followed: Seminars (17% / 26 out of 155 responses), and Call in representative (9% / 14 out of 155 responses).  With the Trails already having a certain amount of articles a year geared toward beef pro-

duction, these results show that breeders are reading them and that it might be time for the beef committee to do more research on how and who to task for new articles to be published with new topics. The committee also presented the members with a simple open-ended question asking what barriers have they faced attempting to start a beef program. As expected there were many different answers given, but there was a couple alarming trends that showed up.  Many responses had to do with finding processing facilities or the thought that there were none that allowed Longhorns. This of course is untrue. While there are some that might not be able to take animals with long horns due to the working equipment that have, a majority of processors would work with the producer to find ways to work with them in their processing efforts. There were also several responses stating a lack of USDA facilities around their area. The education of producers can assist with the knowledge that not all facilities are USDA and that the producer does not have to use a USDA facility to process their meat. In actuality, only a small number of large beef producers would require the need for an USDA facility, a vast majority of producers would need a state certified.   The second trend showing was the response of having too small of a Longhorn herd. A beef program can be one or two head a year to be processed. It is recommended to start this small the first year to help learn all the rules that govern the beef industry. This lack of knowledge showcased the need for more educational resources to producers and breeders to help grow a healthy beef program.

Beef Supply The beef committee has been made aware of past attempts made by several beef producers who have attempted to make contracts with large beef buyers and had to cancel contracts due to lack of supply. Everyone on the committee agrees there is not an efficient supply of Longhorns ready for any large beef demand. We do realize that there should be a sufficient amount for several small buyers or direct to customer buyers. According to the survey, currently 58% (106 out of 183 responses) stated that they send between 1-10 head a year to be processed.   With the majority of producers fitting in that range, 29% (53 out of 183 responses) stating they do not currently send any animals to be processed.  The ranges came in as follows: 11-20 head per year (8% / 15 out of 183 responses), 21-60 head per year (3% / 5 out of 183 responses) and finally 60-above head per year (2% / 4 out of 183 responses).  These numbers show that a there is currently an adequate supply of Longhorn beef in the market for current demand. When it comes to future supply, the number increase shows great support for future contracts with small buyers and space for an adequate future revenue for a na-

Submitted By The Beef Committee tional beef program. From the survey we see all numbers increasing with breeders saying they will not send any to be processed going down. We see the biggest jump in the 11-20 head per year range coming from 8% to 18% (33 out of 181 responses).  The 1-10 head per year range followed up with a jump from 58% to 63% (114 out of 181 responses). Both the 21-60 head per year range and 61-above head per year range went up slightly to both 5%. While the amount of people stating they are not sending any head to be processed went down from 29% to 9% (16 out of 181 responses).  While these are just expected numbers for the future it still shows great hope of growth in the Longhorn beef industry.

Marketing The Longhorn Beef Committee has made one of its goals this year to assist the local producer with marketing on a national level through many different avenues such as partnerships with national campaigns, discounts with industry related products/licenses, and new avenues to advertise the benefits of eating Longhorn beef as well as the benefits of adding Longhorn cattle to commercial beef herds. With that goal in mind some much needed data points were needed, something that had not been gathered before in the Longhorn industry. With all the associated fees that accompany an animal when it is sent out to be processed, the committee wanted to see what the average Longhorn breeder/producer spends on marketing. 72% (108 out of 149 responses) of breeder/producers stated they budget $0-$500 on marketing a year. When considering the cost of fees at sale, transportation, any license required for sale and advertisements this price range is rather low. With the current survey it could not be determined if the reason behind this high number of breeder/producers using this low number was due to lack of education on marketing techniques, financial restraints or just due to the small number of head that would be sent to be processed during a year. The next level, $501-$1500 range, was at 13% (20 out of 149 responses), followed by $1501-$3000 range at 6% (9 out of 149 responses). The highest range, $3000 and above, was at the expected range of responses at 8% (12 out of 149 responses) since this

would represent large Longhorn beef producers. With the new direction the beef committee is trying to steer the beef program, data was needed to find out which cut of beef is the best selling in the Longhorn industry. Many rumors had been stated in the past that either steaks or ground beef was the best selling cut of beef. When asked in the survey, by pound, which is the best selling cut of beef the results reflected the rumors and a clear cut favorite emerged.  Ground Beef (80% / 103 out of 129 responses) was by far the best selling cut of beef, leading the Beef Committee to start any potentially new promotional campaign that involves beef cuts with Ground Beef, followed by Steaks (17% / 22 out of 129 responses).  One of the main factors contributing to this is that ground beef is simpler to process, and does not require the hanging carcass to be cut into box sets. Other options showed little potential on a national advertisements, stew cuts/chunk cuts were at 3% (9 out of 129 responses) and there were no responses for skirt steak/fajitas.

Buyers Demographics This information would be used by the committee to help determine which marketing campaigns or companies would best be able to reach the right audience for the maximum effect. Again this something that has only been speculated on and for the first time in the Longhorn industry we will have some data to look at. With Millennials leading several market trends in business, including beef sales and beef standards, the Committee asked who is the average buyer of Longhorn beef.  With the majority of Longhorn beef buyers falling into the range of 31-45 years old (66% / 82 out of 125), we can see that capturing the Millennial market is a real achievable goal. The next highest age group was the 46-65 years old (25% / 31 out of 125 responses) followed by 20-30 years old age group (7% / 9 out of 125 responses) and last group was the 65 and over (2% / 3 out of 125 responses). We can also strive to raise the percentage of buyers in the 46-65 age group and 65 and over age group by marketing in healthy living magazines and joining with healthy marketing campaigns. With the age groups identified the goal is now to find who is buying Longhorn beef.  Knowing the customer will

Longhorn Beef help narrow down the marketing and advertising done by the Committee even further, seeing a bigger impact from the marketing. Overwhelmingly, Longhorn beef buyers seem to come from the urban/suburban (71% / 95 out of 134 responses) area of life. This shows advertising in nontraditional avenues and in non-cattle industry publications would be highly beneficial.   Ranchers/farmers saw a 22% (29 out of 134 responses) share followed by small retailers/ wholesalers (7% / 10 out of 134 responses). In this survey the committee also attempted to identify which markets are experiencing the most Longhorn beef sales so the committee can see if there is any way for a beef program to give support.  This was difficult to accomplish since the Longhorn beef market is considered a niche market and it is extremely difficult to find a broad term that describes these markets. Direct/Contract sales (58% / 77 out of 133 responses) lead this attempt, followed by the option other (25% / 33 out of 133 responses). The frequency of the producers choosing other shows how difficult it is to find a term that matches the niche market. Internet sales (11% / 14 out of 133 responses)  was surprisingly low and shows that old fashion person to person marketing is still the chosen method in the beef industry. Farmer Markets/COOP (7% / 9 out of 133 responses) were also low in the survey response. This could be from several of factors like insurance requirements, COOP requirement and just time.

Support With the committee currently looking into revamping the beef program and changing the direction of it, the Committee wanted to gauge the support from the membership for a full working beef program and if there was support for a guarantee revenue by membership fees. These revenue streams would help make the beef program self-sufficient and obtain the marketing goals of the committee. When members were asked if they would support a beef program funded by the association, the majority responded with yes (71% / 118 out of 166 responses) followed by no opinion (38% / 62 out of 166 responses). This shows that there is plenty of support for a beef program in the TLBAA, but the goal of the committee is to make a beef program that will be self sufficient on it own revenues.  By contrast there was an 8% (14 out of 166 responses) that stated no. When the survey went deeper and asked if being part of a national campaign to assist in the sales of beef, there was a good response with yes (54% / 88 out of 162 responses) followed by needing more information (38% / 62 out of 162 responses). This suggests that the committee is headed in

the right direction to assist producers with sales by aiming to partner with well established campaigns and associations. Only 7% (12 out of 162 responses) said such an endeavor would not help. When it comes to be the beef program being self sufficient and having support from the membership/producers the results were good. The membership was given minor information concerning what the funds would be used for and then asked what type of fee schedule would best be supported by their program.  Since the committee is currently looking at two different fee schedules, questions were asked based on them. When asked if a yearly fee was assessed to be a member of a beef program which amount would be acceptable, a majority said $75 a year (54% / 71 out of 132 responses) followed by $100 a year (38% / 50 out of 132 responses), and with the highest level with the least in favor of, $125 a year (8% / 11 out of 132 responses).  When asked if they would be accept a fee schedule that would be based on the amount of head to be processed a year we see that yes (60% / 98 out of 164 responses) has the majority. These two questions show that support and the means for a beef program can be realized, especially if you take into account that the current beef program that has not been active has approx. 80 members enrolled into it.

Conclusion The overall response to the survey was overwhelming positive and gave great insights on the current status of Longhorn beef. While we know it will be an uphill battle to change the direction of the beef program these results show that there is interest in expanding the program and that future supply and demand for a program can be obtained. With the current beef program being inactive for several years and still have a roster of approx. 80 breeders just shows how many member we are losing by not having an active beef program when in the survey we are seeing 100+ potential beef producers.  The goal of a beef program being self sufficient is obtainable and the support by membership is there for such a program. We clearly have identified that like many other avenues in market trends the Millennial generation leads the way and the committee has already taken steps to help capture that market even more when it comes to healthy choices. The need for educational material for the beef producers and consumers is a must and shows the vast number of producers unaware of how to start a small beef program or even the definition of a beef program.

Health

Vaccination Technique Tips 1. Always read the label. Products work most effectively when they’re used as specified on the label. To get the best possible immune response, reduce the chance of reactions and minimize the risk of residues, look for these instructions: the proper dosage; timing, route of administration; warnings or indications; withdrawal periods; storage and disposal requirements; and shelf life. Using products in ways that are not specified on the label can be a factor in drug residue problems. 2. Stay away from the muscle. Some products are given intravenously, orally or intranasally, but the most common routes are intra-muscular which means injecting into the muscle; and subcutaneous (SUB-Q), which means injecting just under the skin. Generally, bacter- “Tented” technique ins or killed products can be given subcutaneously. Modified live virus products should be given intramuscularly, because this is a more favorable environment for the virus to reproduce and reach the animal’s lymphatic system. Some products offer a choice of administration route. Whenever possible— and if it’s specified on the label—use the subcutaneous route. 3. Choose the best site. The best site is not always the one that’s fastest and easiest to get to. It’s the site where the product will be most effective, with the least possible risk of damage to valuable cuts of meat. NCA recommends that all clostridial bacterins be given subcutaneously in the neck region, preferably using the “tented” technique. (see illustration). 4. Use multiple injection sites. When giving multiple injections, be sure the injection sites are at least several inches apart. For maximum up-take and effectiveness, don’t put more than ten cc’s into any one site at a time. 5. Use the correct size needle. Using the correct size needle will help ensure that vaccine gets into the animal’s system properly. The selection depends on the size of animal being vaccinated, and the route of administration. A 16 or 18 gauge needle is recommended for SUB-Q and I.M. injections. One-half to 3/4 inches in length is usually adequate for SUB-Q administration. One to one and onehalf inches is usually adequate for I.M., depending on where the injection will be given and the size of the animal.

6. Other tips for proper injection. Sanitation is essential. It can reduce the risk of spreading infection from one animal to another, reduce the chance of contaminating the vaccine, and reduce injection site reactions. Don’t go back into a vaccine bottle with the same needle you use to vaccinate. Change needles frequently, at least every 10 to 15 uses, or every syringe-full of vaccine. If a needle develops a bend or a burr, discard it immediately, as it will tear the tissue. If you lose a needle, get it out even if you have to call a veterinarian. Do not ever try to straighten a bent needle. It is the one that is most likely to break off in the animal. When using killed vaccines, keep a saucer or sponge of disinfectant or alcohol nearby and wipe off the needle after each use. DO NOT disinfect needles between uses when using a modified live vaccine, as the disinfectant can destroy the vaccine. Injecting cattle during wet weather increases the chance of contaminating the injection site. Do not vaccinate late in the feeding period for beef prospects. Check with your veterinarian or on the label for the proper time.

Tips for Avoiding Pasture Bloat Bloat can sometimes be a serious emergency. Dr. David Van Metre, Colorado State University, says putting hungry cattle on lush legume pastures, such as alfalfa or clover—especially in pre-bloom stage—is most dangerous. It becomes less dangerous once the plants are more mature, with lower protein level. “Cattle on legume pastures or new spring growth of winter wheat should be carefully watched. A distended rumen is easier to see from behind the animal than from the side. You want to find them before they develop complications and have trouble breathing,” says Van Metre. The increasing rumen size puts pressure on the lungs, which cannot expand enough to take in air. “Cattle in trouble stand with head and neck extended, open-mouthed, drooling. They are too busy trying to breathe than to swallow saliva, and it drools from the mouth. With serious breathing problems they start to stagger and go down,” he explains. At this point you need to take immediate emergency action to let gas out of the rumen— such as “sticking” the distended rumen with a knife or trocar—to prevent suffocation. Gas production in the rumen is a normal result of digestion, due to fermentation that breaks down fibrous feeds. The population Photo courtesy of Matt Durkin of microorganisms produces large quantities of gas that must be expelled. Under normal conditions, gas in the rumen separates from the solid and liquid contents and rises to the top. Pressure from this gas stimulates belching; the rumen contracts and pushes free gas to the front, where it collects at the esophageal opening. The opening is controlled by receptors in the rumen wall that detect when this area is exposed to liquid or gas. If covered by liquid (or foam) the opening into the stomach stays tightly closed, and the animal cannot burp the gas. This keeps rumen fluid from coming up the esophagus and overflowing into the lungs (which would cause aspiration pneumonia). Belching occurs when receptors around the esophagus sense that free gas is present. The opening relaxes, and the animal takes a deep breath, which draws gas up the esophagus. More than half the gas enters the lungs, 50 | August 2018

and the rest is expelled through the mouth. Since most of the gas enters the lungs before it is exhaled, you rarely hear the animal burp, unless belching a large volume of gas. Normal belching occurs about once a minute except during peak fermentation periods (2 to 4 hours after eating, when volume of gas produced by fermentation increases); then the animal belches 3 to 4 times a minute. This is sufficient for expelling large volumes of gas. The rumen distends when the belching mechanism is impaired and rate of gas production exceeds ability to expel it. Since large volumes are produced, bloat can

develop rapidly if belching cannot occur. Obstruction in the esophagus from blockage (as can happen when eating whole potatoes, beets or apples) can cause acute free gas bloat. Frothy or foamy rumen content (with legume or feedlot bloat) can inhibit belching. Gas is trapped in the fluid, forming an emulsion of tiny bubbles. Pressure of the frothy material inhibits nerve endings that control the opening into the esophagus. If a stomach tube is passed, the tube fills with froth and plugs up. If the rumen is distended with free gas, the gas pocket can be located with the tube and gas will come rushing out, giving the animal immediate relief. “The preferred therapy is to administer mineral oil or poloxalene via stomach tube into the rumen, but if cattle are on pasture, they may be too far from a facility where you can get a stomach tube safely into the animal,” says Van Metre.

The Dave Evans Breeder of the Year Award

A native Texan, Dave Evans 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 JP 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. This award is given to individuals who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of Texas Longhorn cattle through their breeding program.

The Jack Phillips Award is named after former TLBAA President Jack Phillips who was a quiet, yet forceful presence in the TLBAA.

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


Elmer Parker Lifetime Achievement Award Lifetime Devotion to the Texas Longhorn Breed and Its Breeders Elmer Parker was a longtime employee and manager of the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge Longhorn herd. Parker joined the staff 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. This award honors those members, who have been dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Longhorn breed, qualities that Parker was known for.

Induction into the Texas Longhorn Hall of Fame is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon an individual, whose contributions and commitment have truly shaped the breed. NOMINATION CRITERIA Any TLBAA member in good standing may submit a nomination. Nominee must have been an outstanding contributor over a period of years either as a breeder, competitor or contributor to the Texas Longhorn breed. The nominee should have been or is currently a member of the TLBAA. A nominee may be either living or deceased. NOMINATION PROCESS Nomination of an individual must be submitted using the form provided by TLBAF. Incomplete nominations will not be accepted. Materials which may be included with the nomination form are photographs, newspaper or other publication clippings, multimedia items, URL addresses for online videos, competition records from the TLBAA’s HORNS system or other related organizations, reference letters from those who know or knew the nominee, a personal testament from the individual preparing the nomination, or relevant passages from books containing biographical information on the nominee. If these items are sent in, they will not be returned and will become a part of the archives. Nomination forms and supporting materials must be submitted UNBOUND on traditional letter size paper (8.5”x11”). The nomination process considers individuals addressing the following criteria: a.

In Memoriam

Bobby J. Garrett

August 27, 1931 - May 26, 2018 Bobby J. Garrett, lifetime member of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association, passed away May 26, 2018 at his home in Wells, Nevada. He was 86. Bob was born in Phillipsburg, Kansas and moved with his family to northeastern Colorado in 1936. He received his education in country schools and graduated from high school in Weldona, Colorado in 1949. He went to college at Colorado State University (formerly Colorado A&M) in Fort Collins. Bob was a member of the college livestock judging team and Al-

pha Gamma Rho agriculture fraternity. He married Shirley M. Schwindt in 1955 and with his life partner, started their farming and cattle operations. In 1975 they moved their family and livestock to northeastern Nevada and stayed involved in the livestock business until 2008. Bob was a true cattleman. In addition to being a lifetime member of the Association, he served on the National Board of Directors, as well as several affiliates. Bob judged many longhorn shows in the l 970’s and 1980’s including the Calvary Stampede and National Western Stock Show in Denver. He loved the cattle and valued the friendships of those that raised them. Bob is survived by his wife Shirley of 62 years, daughters Sue Smith and Sally Hylton of Wells, Nevada, Shelly Petersen of Duncan, Oklahoma and son Fred Garrett of Deeth, Nevada.

AUGUST

SPRING Calving:

TLBAA Breed Advisory Committee’s

Herd Management Guide

1. Continue fly and tick control programs. Anaplasmosis problems can continue until frost, so observe cow herd closely for animals losing body condition and appearing anemic. Commercial supplements containing 150 grams of chlortetracycline per 50 lbs. of salt are available. Continuous feeding of the tetracycline medication during the fly season should provide adequate protection against the disease. 2. As grass matures, realize that the protein value decreases. Feeding of 2-3 lbs. of a high protein supplement (30-40 percent crude protein content) will stimulate the digestion of the mature forage; therefore, the cattle will consume more forage and maintain their body condition as winter approaches.

FALL Calving:

1. Prepare for the start of calving season and separate cow herd into management groups (first-calf heifers, second-calf cows, mature cows, and open heifers). Watch body condition of the groups closely. Young females entering their first calving season require special nutritional assistance to insure they maintain a reasonable body condition after calving, produce adequate levels for milk for their offspring and rebreed for the coming year. 2. Prepare for herd bull selection and procurement. Conduct breeding soundness exams and fertility checks on all bulls prior to the breeding season.

MULTIVIRTUE

GENETICS MULTI-VIRTUE GENETICS have been the adrenaline rush at DCC for over 51 years. It isn't fast to genetically engineer extreme, critically-correct stock — but certainly worth it. At DCC we work hard at testing, measuring and scientifically reproducing great individuals — and, we share. Come to Ohio and make selections. It is the right time of the year. You are invited.

Check out 16 cow herds with individually selected sire matings. Compare calves from AI representing the top 6 sires in the breed. See the results of AI, embryo, IVF, and cloning technologies — compare. See the testing ground where future sires are born. All one owner.

Walk through 40 carefully evaluated bulls to pick out your next herd sire. DCC is a super market for selection of historic proven genetics — for those who are picky. Pasture decor steers, gentle and genetically bred for expanded spreads. Choose exhibition steers over 100" t2t at only 6 or 7 years old — or, select 100" genetics not yet there due to youth. All one owner.
