EDITOR’S NOTES

WRAP UP AND START FRESH A new year. A fresh start on one hand and a time of reflection on the other. This month has a little of both. The New Year starts off with a bang with Longhorn Weekend, January 13th-17th. All members are encouraged to attend the General Membership meeting, banquet featuring Hall of Fame induction as well as TLBAA special awards, and Eddie Wood Cowtown Classic Sale. In this issue of Trails, a financial statement for the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America is published on pg. 8 which serves as a preview of the reports to be given during the meetings. Come enjoy Longhorn Weekend and the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. This issue takes a reflective look at 2016 Cash Cows starting on pg. 16. It is interesting to see which genetic lines show up again and again, as well as new genetic mixes introduced that move those time tested results to the next level. These in-demand females all brought at least $10,000 at public auction in 2016! It was a pleasure to visit with Samuel Faske about hoof trimming. New breeders may be unfamiliar with the potential need for hoof trims. While it is more common for show animals, the need can arise for various reasons. Those who know Samuel and his story realize what a blessing it is that he is still trimming hooves. Take a look at the informative story and the inspirational sidebar about his journey starting on pg. 32. I apologize for teasing you last month with the chance to meet our newest employees. Turn to pg. 14 to meet Josh, Theresa and Ray. You will also find information there about our current registration special. As you move into the New Year don’t stress over those incomplete 2016 resolutions or fret over making new ones for 2017. Every day is a fresh start and a chance to wrap things up and start something new. We look forward to many fresh starts this year as Trails continues to create more educational and interesting content for our readers. We are working diligently to present the information you want and need in a clear and easy to read format. As always, if you have photos, stories or input you’d like to share please contact me at myra@tlbaa.org. I’d love to hear from you. Stay warm,

Easy Step by Step Instructions for Registering and Transferring Longhorns with the TLBAA The Only Way to Successfully Register Your Longhorns! REGISTRATIONS Your new calf crop is on the ground. You’ve spent hours matching your foundation cows with the perfect herd sires. But there is something missing. It simply isn’t a Texas Longhorn until it is registered. Registration is as easy as one, two, three with the TLBAA. Simply grab a registration application and get started. 1. Is it a cow, bull or steer? Check the appropriate square for the sex of the Longhorn, whether it is a cow, bull or steer. If this proves difficult to determine, you might have to go out to the pasture and lift some tails. 2.Fill in the calving date information. This is the date when the animal was born. 3.What type of birth was it? Check “Natural” if your herd sire serviced the dam. Check “A.I.” if the dam of the calf was artificially inseminated. Check “Embryo” if an egg from a foundation cow created an embryo using semen and was implanted into a recipient cow. Check “Twin” if this is one of two calves born at the same time to one mother. Check “In-Herd-AI” if this is a cow born from using semen obtained from your own herd sire and used on one of your own females. Check “In-Herd-Embryo” if you transferred an embryo out of one of your cows and into one of your own females. Check “Clone” if the calf being registered is the product of a cloning process. 4.Name the Longhorn. At times, this can be the most difficult part. What should you name it? Do you have a one-word name for your prized Longhorn? Chances are it might have been used before. If you would like to use a special name, try using your ranch initials in front of the name to make your animal stand out in the catalogs and show programs. This will also insure that your animals will be able to be registered with a unique name. In the event that a previously registered animal already has the proposed registered name, the private herd number will be inserted at the end of the name to ensure a unique registration name. The name of the animal cannot be more than 24 characters, including spaces between words and no symbols may be used. 5.What is the Holding Brand? At the TLBAA, we have a database that houses the holding brands of our members. Include a large printed copy of the holding brand for the registrations clerk to 10 | January 2017

ensure the correct brand is on file. If you insert your membership number on this line, we will be able to have your holding brand printed on the registration paper of the registered Longhorn. Also include (next to this holding brand number) the location of the brand on the animal. This is usually on the left or the right hip, but brand locations vary from herd to herd. Example: If your holding brand is on the right hip, use the initials RH. According to the TLBAA by-laws (found in the TLBAA Membership Handbook on Pages 31-32) “Animals must be branded by fire, acid or freeze brand and the brand must be visible and readable on the animals. The brand should be registered in accordance with the members local and state law.” 6.Fill in the Private Herd Number. This number varies from breeding program to breeding program and is simply a way for breeders to keep track of their cattle within their own herd. The private herd number is usually composed of two numbers separated by a slash. The top number is the order that the calf was born during the calving season and the bottom number is the last digit of the fourdigit year in which the animal was born. Example: if the animal were the first-born calf of your 2004 calf crop, its private herd number would be 1/4. The location of the private herd number on the animal will also need to be included. Usually the holding brand is put on one hip and the private herd number is placed on the opposite hip. 7.Color Description. If you are having difficulty with your description, turn over the registration application. In the middle of the application, you will find a description word list that will help you describe the color of the animal. A good color description gives a general idea, without too much detail. As an example, “white with red head and shoulders,” will be a sufficient description. The description should use no more than 8-10 words. 8.Name of Sire. Sire information is required in this space. Include the registered name of the sire as well as his private herd number and TLBAA number. If you used your own sire, the ownership information will be your name, address, city and state. If you leased a bull, or used semen from a bull you don’t own, you will have to include the information for the current owner of the bull used. 9.Name of Dam. In this space the dam information is required. Also include her private herd number and TLBAA number as well. The breeder on the certificate is the owner of the

By Rick Fritsche, Registrar dam at the time of service. 10.Owner Membership Number. This will be the membership number of the owner of the animal to be registered. If a non-member purchased this animal at a TLBAA managed sale, a promotional membership number will be generated at no cost to the member. If this animal was sold private treaty to a new breeder, it is common practice for the seller to purchase a promotional membership for the new breeder. 11.Applicant Registration Number. If you are applying, your information will be put here. Include your TLBAA membership number, sign your name and remember to date the application. It is important that you sign and date this application before sending it to the TLBAA office. Without your signature the registration process will come to a halt. This formality also confirms that you are adhering to the TLBAA By-Laws.

TRANSFERS So you have sold one of your Longhorns. You’ve got the check from the buyer in hand and the animal has been delivered. There is one more step to complete the sale. According to the TLBAA records, you still own that Longhorn, and you need to transfer the ownership of that Longhorn to your customer. To begin, grab a transfer application and get started. 1.What type of Longhorn is it? Cow, Bull or Steer. 2.What is the Longhorn’s registered name? Make sure you put the correct spelling along with any numbers or spacing of characters here. 3.The correct private herd number is required. 4.The TLBAA registration number is required. The registration number of the animal never changes once registered and so it should be easily found in your records. 5.What was the date of sale? This date can either be the date when the private treaty was agreed upon, when the payment exchanged hands or the date of a consignment sale. This date must be included for the transfer to be processed. 6.New Membership Owner Information This will be the name, address, city and state information of the new owner. If the new owner is not a TLBAA member, it is common practice for the seller to purchase a gift membership for the new breeder. 7.Seller Membership Information Fill in your TLBAA membership number and sign your name. It is important that you sign because it will certify that you are adher-

ing to the TLBAA By-Laws, while transferring this animal. The registrations department will not transfer an animal unless your signature appears as approving the transfer. 8.Calf at Side information. Did you sell an un-weaned calf along with this Longhorn? If so, fill in the information here. Include as much information as possible. Note: Include the membership number of the breeder of the calf on line “G”. This is usually your number, but if the cow has been exposed to another member’s bull, then it would be that member’s TLBAA number. 9.A and B: Breeding Information If the animal is a female, and has been serviced by either your sires or exposed to other bulls, this information needs to be filled out to the best of your knowledge. Include the names of the sires and the dates that the animal was exposed to these sires. The TLBAA membership numbers of the owners of these sires need to be included also. The registrations department will try to match up a member’s name with their membership number, to the best of their ability, but you are the best source for information about your cattle. For this process to move along smoothly, give as much correct and current information as possible. 10.Membership Number of the Owner of the Dam Include the TLBAA membership number of the person who owns the dam of the transferred Longhorn.

Product Spotlight

By Lindsay Maher

Winter Supplementation With Accuration® Liquid Feed The key to supplementation is to know exactly what is needed and then accurately deliver it. Determining forage quality and understanding feed analysis will help you to identify the appropriate balance for your herd. During the winter months when forage quality is low supplementation is needed to replace missing nutrients, protein, and fat. A convenient and cost effective method of supplementation is liquid feed delivered in a lick-wheel tank. Besides convenience, liquid feed is easy to store, maintain, and minimizes waste typical of dry feed. The licktank allows for several small meals over the course of the day and the opportunity for less dominant animals to feed unchallenged. Liquid feed is designed to complement a roughage diet and enhance forage utilization, not to serve as a substitute. The Purina Accuration® Range Liquid supplement line offers different levels of modifiers to match forage and animal condition. Accuration® Range Liquid Features - Contains 5% fat, 10% fat, or 12% fat for high energy - Molasses- fat blend that is palatable - Available protein levels of 24%, 28% and 32% - Intake Modifying Technology® causes cattle to consume multiple small snacks of the supplement, which optimizes the flow of nutrients to the digestive system, increasing forage intake and overall cattle performance

How to know when nature needs a little help

To Trim or Not To Trim? The concept of trimming cattle hooves is familiar to those who show regularly, but there are times and circumstances that can create a need for trims even on pasture kept Longhorns. I turned to hoof trimmer Samuel Faske for some insight on the subject.

cattle not being shown. Exhibitors entering a show ring want the feet trimmed and attractive. Faske often sets up at shows to allow people to have animals trimmed on site. “Waiting to trim only at a show is not something I recommend,” Faske explained, “But, most breeders only have two to eight animals on their show string so it makes more sense for them to catch me at the show. At a show, I can usually trim 30 or 40 animals, and it’s more feasible for the owners and myself than a ranch call for a couple of trims.” Waiting until one is at the show usually doesn’t presWhile hoof care for damage or health issues may ent any problems, but Faske recommends a 24-hour seem obvious, some may think that nature always lead time before your first class. If the hoof is just needwears down the constantly growing hooves. In the past, ing a little clean-up for the ring, a shorter time frame when Longhorns were roaming thousands of acres, may work. The potential for problems arise when the natural wear was adequate to wear back hooves. Even hoof needs a lot taken off. today, larger pastures can allow pasture kept feet to stay Faske warns, “The biggest problem arises when show an acceptable length. string cattle on high protein diets are only trimmed “A 5- to 10-acre pasture doesn’t allow enough space once or twice a year. There’s a lot of extra hoof growth for movement to wear hooves naturally,” explains Faske. due to diet and due to the tendency to keep show ani“If you have a 40+ acre pasture with water source on one mals in stalls or smaller pens. By the time I trim them end, grazing gives them plenty of opportunity to walk for a show I have to take off a lot more hoof in one trim from one end of the pasture to the other throughout the than I normally would like to.” He adds that it’s better day and encourages natural wearing of the hooves.” to keep this type of Longhorn on a trimming schedule. For those new to Longhorns and/ or showing, Faske recommends trimming every 3 to 4 months. He also warns to avoid keeping them in muddy pens or stalls that will cause them to develop foot rot or heel wart. “It’s important to make sure you get them trimmed at a decent time rather than let them grow out of shape or too long,” he adds. “There are some animals I’ve that I’ve done that have grown so out of shape that it takes Before Trim Before Trim After Trim me coming back two or three times and trimming before getting it back Hooves that are too long may develop cracks or start to overlap. Waiting too long could cause a trimmer to have to make multiple trips to correct issues instead of just into the proper shape.” one. It’s best to prevent issues before they begin. Hooves that are too long can cause pain. Faske advises to take noOther environmental issues contribute to longer tice when feet start to get too long or develop cracks hooves as well. Smaller properties tend to have loose and act swiftly to prevent any further damage or potensoil and easier terrain and breeders often supplement tial pain. with mineral and protein, especially for show animals.

Why Trim?

Samuel Faske — Blessed to Be Trimming Hooves

Before Trim

After Trim

An example of hooves being trimmed before excessive growth.

“A lot of times, in younger cattle, you’re trying to get legs squared up while they’re young so they develop better legs as they grow; just like putting braces on kid’s teeth, or a leg brace on a kid that had a bad leg. Get that straightened up when they’re young while their legs are still changing, they respond well and later on, the leg is developed more square, so you end up with a better looking animal when they mature. If you let it go until it’s pretty bad, then try to pull it back later, they don’t move very well once they get older. Like older people don’t do as well with braces on their teeth as a kid does.” (Trails Magazine, May 2011) He, like Faske, emphasizes that while trimming can be used to correct issues such as toes crossing, toeing in or out or being pigeon-toed, waiting until right before a show is not a good idea.

Preparing For A Trim Whether trimming at a show or on your property, the number one thing to be addressed is the nature of the Longhorn. While known for their docile nature and tendency to be fond of human attention, being put on a table to be trimmed can cause apprehension. Make sure your animals are used to people touching them and being around them, advises Faske. They need to remain calm to be put on the table. If they’re too nervous, he must trim them by hand in a chute. Faske’s “table” is similar to a chute with a headstall. The animal’s head is placed in the headstall, the body secured

Faske was always observing when hoof trimmer Cliff McGee would come to his family’s Vida Nueva Ranch and trim their Longhorns. Faske says he was fascinated by the whole process, from how the equipment worked to how easily Cliff handled the animals. With the Faske family usually having around 20 head trimmed per visit, Samuel had plenty to observe. Cliff noticed Samuel’s interest and asked him if we would like to learn. So, from age 14 to 17, Faske became an apprentice of Cliff McGee. McGee was on his 18th year of trimming hooves at the TLBAA World Show and mentions Samuel’s interest and apprenticeship in an article published in the May 2011 Trails Magazine. McGee is quoted “He has been working on their cattle when I’m at their house,” Cliff explains. “When I go to their place, I’m just a coach, so we’re going to wind up with Samuel getting into the Longhorn part of it pretty serious before long. I was kind of tickled; they took a few cattle to the ITLA International Show and they had a super young cow and she won the whole thing. I saw one of the officials there and I said, “John, do you know who trimmed that cow?” Well he kind of grinned and pointed at me and I said, “No! Samuel Faske trimmed that cow!” I wanted to make sure everybody around there heard me.” Today, Samuel is grateful for McGee’s impact on his life, crediting him with not only teaching him a trade, but also setting an example of how to be a man of integrity. The time spent with Cliff and his family always led to good lessons learned. During his apprenticeship, Faske had started accumulating his own equipment and was given an old trim chute trailer by Bolen Longhorns that they were no longer using. Faske and McGee did a lot of work to it. McGee put one of his trim chute gates on it and it almost looked like one of his. “Cliff is very smart with what he’s done,” stated Faske, the admiration evident for his mentor. Faske and his brothers did some further modifications to the table and it is a work in progress – always looking for ways to improve how it functions. The future is something Samuel looks forward to, maybe even more than the average person. In 2013 his whole life changed when an accident almost claimed his life. After spending 30 days in ICU, he still had to deal with tubes, a back brace and multiple surgeries over a long period of time. His condition was a cause for much concern in the Longhorn community. In fact, not a single physician who saw Samuel or his medical chart/records had an explanation for why Samuel was still alive.

Herd Health to the table with body straps, and the feet secured with ropes. A hydraulic lift raises and tilts the entire wall panel with the animal completely secured, which allows Faske to easily and safely trim the feet with an electric grinder. “I prefer the owner to have a chute of their own to put them in first. If they stay calm I’ll move them to my chute and progress to getting them on the table. If they are uncooperative I will trim them one foot at a time in the owner’s chute. People also have to understand that getting them on the table takes two people, so I need someone willing to help get the animal secured to be there.” Safety of the animal is always top priority. A final requirement would be a power source nearby with easy access.

What About The Horns? The years growing up with Longhorns and showing them have benefitted Faske greatly in the hoof trimming arena. If a regular hoof trimmer is willing to work on Longhorns, they usually stop when the Longhorn is around 24 months of age. According to Faske, “Any other regular hoof trimmer wouldn’t want to do Longhorn cattle just because of the horns they have to deal with.” He added that while he easily trims other breeds, Longhorns make up about 80% of his business. So far, Faske said, he has not been deterred because of horn length. He cites 87.5” being the longest horn length he has put on his table. Shape can often be a bigger issue. They key to it all is a cooperative, willing Longhorn. The positioning of the horns within his setup can be managed, but even with Faske’s calm, quiet nature and experience with Longhorns it won’t work with an agitated Longhorn.

Soundness

The importance of sound feet cannot be stressed enough. Sore feet can lead to cattle that do not eat or drink adequately due to pain or an unwillingness to walk far due to discomfort. 34 | January 2017

Pay attention to your herd sire’s feet as well. The extra weight they carry and the stress of pasture breeding requires a solid structural foundation. Hoof issues can impact his ability to cover cows. Simply make it a habit to include the hooves when you are checking on your cattle. It only takes a few seconds to look down and assure that toes are not too long, the feet are crack free and that weight is not being kept off a foot. It’s just another precaution in keeping your Longhorns healthy. Samuel has an answer – the power of prayer and the grace of God. Many Longhorn breeders stayed abreast of Samuel’s situation and there was a huge outpouring of love and concern from the Longhorn family. It is a subject that Faske finds difficult to talk about but wants everyone to realize the miracle that occurred. “That journey itself was something very hard for me to go through, but it was definitely not possible without the prayers of those who were praying for me. That was the real game changer, just knowing that the people who were praying were with me every step of the way. It was not easy for me to fight, but the comfort of having people behind my back was very helpful for me.” During his recovery, Samuel’s brother, Joseph, helped keep Samuel’s hoof trimming business going. Samuel taught him to trim and would watch and coach him as he kept Samuel’s clients on their trim schedules. The road back to trimming was slow, with Samuel being able to trim one day and maybe back at the hospital the next. Now, Samuel says he is past all that.” Although Samuel says he still has his ups and downs, he stays busy. Not only does he trim hooves, but he has served as the youth leader of his church for the past three years and he is attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Houston, TX. Add to that ranch management for his family’s Vida Nueva Ranch and Faske says some days he doesn’t know how he’s doing it all after looking back at what he’s come through. “It’s a God thing - to see myself now and wonder how I’m here, or looking at the people in my life that made it possible for me to do what I do.”

Herd Health

Cold Stress in Cattle

Importance of Adequate Nutrition in Winter Weather is always a factor in cattle health and wellbeing. Stressed animals are more vulnerable to stressrelated illnesses. Cattle generally need more care during cold or wet weather and this often means additional feed. Providing adequate nutrition to cows and calves can reduce the incidence of illness or loss of animals. As days get shorter in winter and weather is colder, body metabolism changes. Feed intake increases and passage of feed through the digestive tract speeds up. Feed requirements for cattle may go up as much as 10 to 25%, depending on how cold it is. More feed is needed, to increase in heat production so the animal can withstand winter temperatures. Adequate body condition is extremely important during winter. Cows that get too thin during a cold or wet winter suffer more cold stress than fatter cows (since fat serves as insulation and a source of energy reserves). A thin cow must rob body fat in order to keep warm, so this becomes a vicious cycle. Calves born to thin cows may be compromised in body condition and immune health, and more prone to disease during their first weeks of life. Calves from thin cows may be born weak, unable to get up quickly and nurse—not getting colostrum soon enough. Cold stress also hinders a calf’s ability to absorb the antibodies in the colostrum. Thin cows may not produce adequate levels of antibodies in their colostrum if their diets have been short on protein. Calf survivability is lower in thin cows, and the thin cow’s ability to rebreed is hindered. If weather is cold and windy, cows must eat more food to keep warm. If they spend all their time standing behind windbreaks or huddling in a group to protect themselves from the wind, rather than grazing, they can’t eat enough to maintain body heat. Even if pasture is available, they may not start grazing until temperatures are warmest in midday, and lose weight 38 | January 2017

because they’re not eating enough feed. Under these conditions you may need to feed hay or a supplement early in the day to get them going, and then they’ll usually start grazing. Cattle that have a chance to acclimate gradually to winter develop a thick hair coat and put on body fat if feed sources are adequate, and this enables them to withstand much colder temperatures. With short summer hair, a cow may chill when temperatures drop below 40 degrees F. whereas a cow with a heavy winter

coat can stay comfortable at temperatures below zero F. if there’s no wind. She can also adjust to cold weather by increasing metabolic rate, to increase heat production. Increased metabolism will also increase her appetite and she’ll eat more, to keep warm. If a cow gets too cold, however, heat loss and cold stress will reduce appetite and decrease her efficiency of feed conversion. Body metabolism is adversely affected if body temperature drops. Mammals must maintain a fairly constant body temperature to keep up the metabolic processes that enable the body to function. If temperatures drop below the animal’s comfort zone, there’s not only an increase in maintenance requirements, but digestibility is also reduced. This further increases the feed needs of cattle. Research has shown that there’s a decline of about 1% in feed digest-

By Heather Smith Thomas ibility for each 2 degrees of temperature drop. But cattle that are adapted to cold weather have more efficient digestion at cold temperatures and are more resistant to the depressing effects of cold on digestion. If a cow has a good winter coat, she does fine until temperature drops below about 20 F. Below that, she must compensate for heat loss by increasing her energy intake, to increase heat production and maintain body temperature. Healthy cows in average body condition (body score 5) or higher, acclimated to cold weather, have a “lower critical temperature point” (LCT). This is the point at which maintenance requirements increase and you must feed them more. This is the lower limit of the comfort zone, below which the animal must increase the rate of heat production. Lower critical temperature for cattle depends on their hair coat; a heavy winter coat provides much more insulation than summer hair and the animals won’t need extra energy to keep warm until the temperature drops below that point or they get wet. The LCT of wet cows is 59 degrees. If the cows are not receiving extra nutrition to provide the needed body heat, they burn fat and lose weight. Weight loss during late gestation will result in lower pregnancy rates the next breeding season. Increase in windchill or wet weather can dramatically increase cold stress on cows. Research from Kansas and Iowa indicates that maintenance energy require-

ments of a cow increase by 1% for each degree below her LCT. For wet cows, rule of thumb is 2% for each degree below LCT. For cows with wet coats, windchill temperature may easily be 20 to 30% below LCT. Periods with high winds, snow or rain will dramatically increase energy requirements.

Increase in windchill or wet weather can dramatically increase cold stress on cows. A 1100-pound pregnant cow needs about 11.2 pounds of total digestible nutrients (TDN) per day when temperatures are above her lower critical temperature. If the temperature drops 20 degrees below her lower critical temperature, she needs 20% more TDN (2.2 more pounds of digestible nutrients). To supply that, you can feed her 5 pounds of hay containing 50% TDN. Your county extension agent or a cattle nutritionist can help you figure out the nutrient quality of your hay. Cattle need to eat more roughage (forage) to provide calories for heat energy. If they don’t eat enough fibrous feed (which is broken down in the rumen to produce energy, with the fermentation process creating extra heat), pounds melt off as they rob body fat to create the energy needed for warmth. With more total

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS

January 2017 | 39


Herd Health pounds of roughage in the diet, either as pasture or some additional grass hay or good quality straw, a cow can keep warm—as long as she has enough protein to feed the rumen microbes that ferment and digest the roughage. In cold weather, high quality leafy alfalfa by itself is not the best feed. Even though it supplies plenty of protein, calcium, vitamin A and other important nutrients, it does not contain enough fiber to provide heat energy during cold weather. Cattle fed high quality hay as their only forage source may lose weight in winter. Alfalfa alone is not adequate for cattle when weather is really cold; they gobble it up and stand around shivering. They need more fiber in the rumen to create heat energy. If a cow is cold, she needs all the roughage she will clean up. You can’t feed that much high quality alfalfa or the cow may bloat. Beef cows don’t need dairy quality alfalfa and it isn’t the best feed anyway for cold weather. Alfalfa for beef cows can be lower quality (containing more stems/fiber and less leaves) or a grass/alfalfa mix if it’s fed as the primary forage source, or fed in small quantities as a protein supplement. A small amount of good alfalfa per cow per day (or the daily ration doubled

and fed every other day) can supply the “gut bugs” with adequate protein to do their job, and can augment protein and mineral/vitamin levels of poor quality roughage such as dry pasture or low quality grass hay or straw. Alfalfa or some other protein supplement can balance the diet and enable the cow to utilize the poorer quality forage to best advantage. When it gets really cold, cows do fine if you feed them all the poor quality roughage they can eat—ant this can be straw or low quality, mature grass hay—and enough alfalfa or protein supplement to provide the necessary protein for digesting it.

Herd Management Guide

SPRING Calving

1. Feed pregnant mature females to consume adequate energy, protein, minerals and vitamins prior to calving. If pasture grass is limited due to overgrazing or poor rainfall during the summer, then energy is your first concern. Feeding a medium (8-10 percent crude protein) to high quality (15-17 percent crude protein) hay free choice will provide an excellent source of energy for the females. If pasture grass is plentiful, but dormant and poor in quality during this time of year, then protein is generally your first concern. If your cows are in good body condition, feeding low levels of a high crude protein supplement (3240 percent crude protein) is your best alternative. If your cows are thin in body condition, then feeding higher levels of a low crude protein, high energy range cubes (20 percent crude protein) will provide increased intake of vital nutrients. If winter pasture is available, then the females should not need additional energy or protein supplementation. A source of salt as well as a good commercial calcium: phosphorus mineral mix with added Vitamin A should be available on a free choice basis. 2. Check first calf heifers (due to calve) daily for possibility of calving

difficulties. Provide assistance as necessary. 3. Weigh yearling heifers and make sure that the heifers have the necessary nutrition available to weigh 65 percent of their mature weight prior to the start of their breeding season in late spring and early summer.

FALL Calving:

1. Fertility check bulls prior to the start of breeding season. 2. Provide sufficient supplemental feed to bulls in breeding pastures to keep the bulls in good body condition to insure good, aggressive breeding behavior. 3. Continue supplemental feeding to cows nursing calves to insure good rebreeding performance and good weaning weights of calves. Lactating cows grazing dormant range grass require approximately 3-4 pounds of a 40 percent range cube or 6-8 pounds of a 20 percent range cube daily to meet their protein requirement. If winter pasture is available, forage intake should be sufficient to meet nutrient requirements of lactating females. 4. Consider limited creep feeding (16 percent crude protein) for calves nursing older cows, first calf heifers or any calves needing additional nutrition.

Rombeck Promotes Longhorns in “Grass & Grain” Newspaper TLBAA member Justin Rombeck recently had the opportunity to extoll the benefits of raising Texas Longhorns in “Grass & Grain”, an agribusiness newspaper covering rural Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri. With 15,000 plus subscribers and pass along readership multiplying to 37,500 weekly readers, the paper will allow many who have never considered Longhorns to see the many benefits of raising them. The article discusses Rombeck’s experience with Longhorns, the breed’s history, their desireable traits, crossbreeding and some insight into where the industry is at today. To read the article, go to http:// www.tlbaa.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/GrassAndGrain_Rombeck.pdf or click the link in the December 2, 2016 issue of E-Trails.

Israeli continued In the northern Gilboa Forest section of Israel, Dr. Em Mowrer (right) of Barnesville, Ohio prepares to implant Texas Longhorn embryos from Dickinson Cattle Co. The 10,000 acre Israeli ranch is managed by Erez Cahaner (dark blue shirt) who came to the USA to purchase new genetics for the arid desert ranch. This is one of the largest cattle operations in the eastern Mediterranean area.

Ohio is either number one or two in the export of genetic and germ plasma, which is semen or embryos. Wisconsin and Ohio are the two leading export states, mostly due to the long time health status of the in-state herds. Dickinson Cattle Co provided all the Texas Longhorn embryos. Embryos were also acquired from Ohio’s famous Maplecrest Farm. “I feel the success of this export project should be pretty good. The Cahaners had excellent working facilities, and they are serious about raising efficient cattle adapted to the rugged Gilboa environment.” reports Dr. Mowrer.
