EDITOR’S NOTES YOU CAN’T MAKE THEM DRINK

As we go into the new year, the old saying “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink” has never been more appropriate. There is another truth within the saying... He can’t drink if not given the opportunity. Longhorn owners run into this every day. You can tell folks about the wonderful characteristics of Texas Longhorns and the joy of owning them, but you can’t force them to join the ranks of ownership. However, if you don’t expose them to Longhorns, how will they ever have the opportunity to partake? Marketing takes a variety of forms, from advertising to press coverage or participating in community events. But sometimes one is so focused on reaching out, that they overlook the importance of being prepared with pricing when someone does show interest. We asked three breeders who are successfully selling private treaty how they approach pricing. Turn to pg. 24 to see their responses in “Effective Pricing for Private Treaty Sales”. The results of successful marketing and building value in your program can be found in the “Cash Cows” listing starting on pg. 12. We present these animals as a reference for those wanting to see what genetics are in demand in the current market. While not every animal can sell for 10K or higher, a lot of quality animals are created in the process of trying. It is important to realize that there is a wide range of possibilities in the Longhorn world. Back to the original saying... it holds true for Trails Magazine marketing opportunities as well. There are so many opportunities for our members to get their program exposed for free or at minimal cost. These are mentioned frequently in Trails, on Facebook and via e-blasts. It is offered freely to our members, yet few partake. For those who are nosing the waters, here is a quick reference list. If you are wondering what good it does to get a simple mention in Trails, keep in mind that our magazine is frequently requested by those interested in the breed and most of our website traffic is from new visitors and organic searches. Every page of our magazine is available online for free to the public. So what could it hurt to take a drink and submit some items to the magazine for free? Here’s what we accept: Meet Our Members (open to breeders four years or less) News On The Trail – any media coverage, public attention for Longhorns, birth announcements, wedding announcements, school projects or awards for member or their family. Just For Grins - submit a funny or cute photo with caption Editorial and Cover Photos - always need everyday life with Longhorn. Shots of everything from feeding, watering, herd shots, scenic shots, doctoring, working in pens or chutes, vaccinating, etc.

Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasona ble assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risk of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America as of June 30, 2018, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Cash Cows

This year presented challenges to the world of Longhorn auctions, ranging from mother nature’s wrath to an increase in both number of Longhorn breeders and in Registered Texas Longhorn population. Losing leases, life changes and dispersals all made the number of Longhorns available at auction this year increase, many of them high-end animals from top herds. All of this contributes to a slight decrease in dollar amounts, but still held out to prove that when you have prized genetics in an desirable animal offered at auction, they still demand a premium.

The 107 Longhorns featured on the following pages sold at public auction in 2018 for $10,000 or higher. The total dollar amount represented here is just over $2.2 million.

SELLING

registered Texas Longhorns can make one feel as if they are on an episode of American Pickers. People come to your property and look at your cattle with awe and then comes the question, “What will you take for that one?” Now comes the moment of truth. Are you prepared to answer with a well thought out number or a refusal to sell? Will your buyer walk away from your price feeling like it was way out of line based on the current market? Are you prepared to hold to a bottom dollar or so eager to sell that you’ll give them a heck of a deal? There are no cameras rolling when you deal with potential buyers, but the way you handle pricing can help or hurt future sales and should be well thought through ahead of time. Private treaty sales are essential to your Longhorn enterprise. While there are public auctions that specifically sell registered Texas Longhorns, consignment spaces are limited. There are also costs associated with entering the sale, transportation, and personal travel, as well as a time investment. That extra expense may be worth it if you have an animal that you know would be desirable to multiple bidders. There are local sale barns that hold regular commercial cattle sales, and they are viable to take culls out of

the Longhorn genetic pool, but Longhorns are undervalued at these auctions compared to regular commercial cattle prices. The majority of registered Longhorns transferred in a year are sold via private treaty. Your first priority, even before hanging out your “Longhorns For Sale” sign, is to know what type of animals you have and what market they would be most suited for. No matter how carefully you breed, not all of your production is going to be at the elite level commanding top dollar. And, while many strive to produce those animals, the majority of Longhorn owners have limited space or resources which dictates moving cattle quickly to avoid overgrazing or overcrowding. The objective evaluation of your herd is something that should be a continuous process, taking into consideration what markets would have interest in particular animals and what the current demand is for that type of animal or genetics.

Four Basic Markets

There are four basic markets for Longhorns with many animals having the potential to be desirable in more than one area. For instance, animals exhibiting outstanding horn growth could be of interest to horn producer or to a collector wanting yard art that stands out. Flashy animals that start on the show circuit could

wind up as yard art for someone who simply loves the horn shape and color of a particular animal. By default, all Longhorns qualify as beef animals. 1. HORN – Horn length, size and shape are paramount to the horn market. While those who are truly breeders also want a strong production animal with good conformation and disposition, genetics are often valued over the actual look of the individual being sold. Not only are those that display the desired horn worth more, those who have proven genetics and have shown to out produce themselves can bring premium prices. Many in this category, especially with elite potential, are reserved to sell in a public auction specifically for registered Texas Longhorns. 2. SHOW – An animal in the show market should have excellent conformation, good color and attractive horn. These Longhorns often have shorter horns and a beefier body and must show production potential. 3. BEEF – this market includes selling animals going to slaughter as well as females and bulls for crossbred programs and into production herds specifically to raise beef. While all animals can be processed for beef, females that

go into a production herd for beef are ideally easy keepers that milk well, calve dependably and re-breed easily. A bull that is chosen for a beef production herd sire versus straight to beef is often chosen for his body type and ability to reliably cover females and successfully produce offspring. Most young bulls are destined for beef rather than production due to the fact that many are born but few are needed. YARD ART – This is the market with the hardest to pin down variables. A buyer in this category may range from wanting any Longhorns just to have them to a collector who wants only the rarest, most striking or impressive examples of horn or color to adorn their front pasture.

NG

Private treaty sales are simply the owner of an animal and the buyer negotiating a sale agreement without a middle man. The majority of registered Texas Longhorns are bought and sold this way.

Buying And Selling Longhorns For Beef The subject of processing beef is one Longhorn owners hear frequently. But have you ever considered developing the market for the animals instead of dealing with the meat processing yourself? While not everyone has the desire to build a meat sales program, all breeders wind up with bull calves they need a market for. At the same time, a frequent complaint of those who have developed a following for their Longhorn beef, the available supply in their own herd doesn’t always match demand. While there are plenty of marketing efforts centered on herd sires or breeding programs, there seems to be little marketing calling for cattle suitable for processing and priced accordingly. In today’s world of increased demand for farmraised naturally healthy beef, it does not take a lot of marketing effort to develop a market for product that garners much more for a bull calf than the local livestock market will pay. With the numbers of breeders on Facebook wondering how they will sell their bull calves, a mention in your ads, signage, etc. that simply states that you pur-

chase young bulls for beef could develop into an ability for you to increase meat sales while helping other breeders receive a reasonable price for their unwanted bulls or cull females. The same holds true for those marketing Longhorns for sale. Mentioning that you have bulls for sale for beef lets those in the market for additional animals to process know you’d be open to being approached. In this industry where many animals are treasured too much by their owners to be considered for beef, it helps to let potential buyers know that you have some stock that you’d be willing to market to a beef program. It is a mistake for one to get caught in the trap that marketing is only for sellers. While it is critical to sellers to let people know what they have to offer, it is equally important for a buyer to let others know they are in need of inventory to produce their product. Longhorn beef saved economies and fed a hungry nation following the Civil War. Put that same desire for quality beef to work for you today. Remind people that you have a need for or supply of Longhorn beef on the hoof.

er should be to help increase the value of their individual herd by increasing the market for those cattle.” Schumacher explains. “It’s important to be up front. If you want to sell your cattle, price them to sell! When people are shopping online, it’s important for them to understand what you’re asking so they know if they can afford to make a visit to check out your herd.” How do registered Texas Longhorn auctions play a part in private treaty pricing? Hudson feels that for high end animals the public auction sets price the best. “I sold a heifer this past September that brought us $50,000 in a public auction. The heifer was marketed as well as I know how to market one and I was very satisfied with what she brought. If you would have asked me before the sale what she is worth, I would have said, ‘I really don’t know, but as soon as she sells, then I can tell you what she is worth.” He adds, “The upper end of the market fluctuates from year to year and is a very volatile market. Just because a 90” cow brought $60,000 last year doesn’t mean that she will be worth that this year.” Schumacher sells higher end cattle via consignment sales as does Thompson. Thompson advises against relying on sale averages for determining your prices. They do, however, advise attending sales as a tool for learning. It does educate you on what current trends are and what cattle are considered worthy of cash cow status. Another important thing to remember is this, if you want your private treaty prices to hold, do not consign animals to public auction that do not reflect the quality of your program. Selling inferior animals at a registered

Texas Longhorn consignment sale to simply try and make more than the sale barn can hurt your marketing efforts. Consigning good representations of the program you’re building will encourage observers to want to see more of your offerings private treaty. Sometimes taking a loss by going to the local sale barn can actually pay off in the long run. For Hudson, culling is an important part of building a brand. “I had rather take the culls to the sale barn than to try to get a few hundred dollars more per animal. If we don’t sell them or get any offers close to our asking price within a reasonable amount of time, we will send them to the sale-barn. We sell our bulls to someone who retails longhorn beef, so we get a fair price well above the sale barn price for our cull bulls.” The other source of sales information that all owners use is other owners. The Longhorn community loves to share information both with new owners and breeders interested in furthering their Longhorn knowledge. Go look at other herds and see how they’re priced. Ask about pricing criteria. The worst that can happen is that someone chooses to not discuss it. The best result could be advice that helps you move your cattle. Everyone’s required return on investment is different based on their plan goals and resources. If you want to price your Longhorns successfully, you have to take all factors of your operation as well as the market available (or that you can build). The time spent in research and promotion is a small price to be able to enjoy the breed you love.

COLD STRESS IN CALVES Tips on Warming Chilled Calves Calves that are severely chilled at birth, without immediate assistance to warm/ dry them and make sure they ingest colostrum in a timely manner, have poor survival rates. If a calf gets too cold before he suckles, he may not be able to get the teat in his mouth, and does not obtain crucial energy (for keeping warm) or the antibodies he needs. His ability to absorb antibodies from colostrum also diminishes as he becomes colder.

PREVENTING COLD STRESS Dr. Charles Stoltenow, Associate Professor and Extension Livestock Program Director, North Dakota State University, says producers need to be prepared for cold weather and minimize cold stress. “The number one thing we talk about is effects of wind and wet. If it’s severely cold we usually don’t have wet conditions,” he says. Dry cold is not as hard on baby calves as being wet. “Make sure the cow is on an increasing plane of nutrition in late pregnancy, for optimum milk production. Stockmen need to provide windbreaks in the calving area, and good drainage, so there are no puddles. Often calves get hypothermia due to freeze/thaw cycles. You

have to get calves up off the cold, frozen ground,” he says. If there’s no old grass, they need bedding. “You can bed with straw or old hay to help keep calves warm. It’s often better to sacrifice some old hay to keep the calves warm, rather than thinking you need to feed it to cows. You have to think preventively. After calves have suffered frostbite, it’s too late. After they’ve been in the rain for three days, it’s too late.” The main goal is to prevent this type of situation. “It’s like calf scours. I am not a big fan of vaccinating the cow to prevent calf scours, because this means we are still allowing the calf to come into contact with a contaminated environment. We are not dealing with the main issue,” says Stoltenow. In the battle against cold stress, prevention is important, so you don’t have to skirmish in close quarters. You want to go into battle on your terms, with preventative management. “Find a way to break the wind. Newborn calves dry off fast, and if they can get up and nurse before they get too chilled, they do fine. Newborn calves can withstand a lot of cold if they are dry and have a good milk supply,” he says. If cows are calving on pasture with windbreaks, they manage fairly well. But if you have to drylot cows and don’t have a lot of room, you must think about windbreaks and cover. “In a northern climate you need the calves up off the frozen ground,” he says. “I’m not a big fan of calving barns. Congregating all these animals in what we call a pinch-point in the system can be detrimental,” says Stoltenow. And if it’s warm in the barn, it will be humid, possibly leading to pneumonia in young calves. “If you get a pathogen in there like an E. coli, Salmonella or corona-virus or rotavirus, you are exposing all the calves to those. If you use calving barns, cleanliness is next to godliness,” he says. Never leave calves in the barn more than 12 to 24 hours—just long enough to be completely dry and nursing their mothers—and

Breeding

Once a calf is warmed and successfully nursing it should be able to withstand the winter weather from that point on.

Regarding calves with frostbite, you can often reverse frostbite with warm water, if they haven’t been cold too long. “The key is warm water (at body temperature), not hot. This can help warm up the tissues, but you don’t want to rub because those tissues may be damaged from freezing and you could damage them worse,” says Daly. Immersing a calf in hot water can be too much shock for a really cold calf. In a cold animal, blood is shunted away from extremities and into the body core, to try to keep internal organs warm enough to keep functioning. If you suddenly put the cold animal in hot water this can

32 | January 2019

drive cold from body surfaces into the body core. If the heart is chilled too much (cold shock), it stops, and the calf will suddenly die. Starting with lukewarm water and gradually warming it to calf body temperature (101 degrees) is best. A calf born in below-zero temperatures and already freezing is an emergency. Warm water will be the quickest way to warm him, whether it’s in a bathtub or some other method. You don’t want frozen feet, ears, and tails. Even after you’ve thawed and dried the calf and he’s back with mom, watch for swelling in the feet. Calves with frozen feet may not be able to function. “Purebred breeders are diligent to prevent frostbitten ears and tails, for cosmetic reasons. There are various types of ear warmers that you can buy,” he says. A calf without ears or tails is less able to protect himself from flies. Frozen feet is a more crucial issue. “Most of the calves I’ve seen with frozen feet were usually debilitated from some other reason, like scours,” says Daly. The dehydrated calf has less blood flow to the extremities; his limbs become cold and more vulnerable to freezing. If a calf is sick he’s usually spending too much time lying down; he may not be able to get up and walk around and get circulation going. Blood perfusion to the limbs is severely compromised and a rancher may not realize that these calves may freeze their feet at temperatures that would not be dangerous to a normal, healthy calf.

Equipment

Choosing a De-Icer For Your Stock Tank Tired of chipping ice out of your stock tank? Well if it is near a source of electricity you may want to consider a de-icer. De-icers come in several varieties, include those that float, those that sink and those that plug into the tank’s drain plug. With each of these types, a guard is always recommended for the safety of your Longhorns. Cords should also be protected from rubbing or chewing. These protected cords can utilize tough plastic covers or be wrapped in metal wire.

Wattage is an important consideration for performance speed and efficiency. Higher wattage means faster heating and less overall energy usage. See chart for recommended wattage for different tank sizes. Tank Size Wattage

While duration and intensity of cold vary the effectiveness of non-electric solutions, they generally are at least effective in slowing the development of ice or making it easier to break. One simple method requires filling an empty twoliter bottle or milk jug with a water and salt mixture (heavy on the salt) and placing in the stock tank. Be sure to leave enough air in the bottle that it will float standing upright, but partially submerged. While it may not prevent ice from forming, the ice around it will be thinner and the cattle can push the bottle down and drink from the hole. Other methods include grouping tanks, partially burying the tank, covering the tank with heavy black tarp and making an opening to drink through and even tires have been used on very large tanks as a means to use the sun’s energy and allowing cattle an opening to drink through. De-icers do have solar and battery versions available as well, but those are more often used on smaller tanks and buckets.

TLBAA World Show Committee

Showing Bulls

Page 42 of Handbook Bull Classes: “All bulls competing are shown at halter WITH A NOSE LEAD. Bulls 12 months of age and over must show with a permanent nose ring and nose lead. All bulls over 12 months must use neckties or neck straps when secured in stall. Handlers must be 18 years or older and/or in the TLBT Senior Showmanship Division to show bulls in Classes 27-29 and Produce of Dam/Get of Sire classes if a Class 27-29 bull(s) is/are entered. All youth may show Class 26 or under.” The use of nose leads is required for every bull, in every class, at every show. To be sure we all understand this, a nose lead is the strap that attaches to the nose ring of the bull and is held by the exhibitor. Bulls under 12 months of age may use a temporary nose ring, those over 12 months of age must have a permanent nose ring. No exceptions. This is for exhibitor safety first and foremost. As well all know, bulls are wired to breed, and they are prone to “argue” with other bulls about who should be doing the breeding. Having a nose ring with a nose lead attached helps us to keep control over them when in the show ring. The use of neckties or neck straps provides a secondary means of restraint while tied in stalls. These are required for all bulls over 12 months at every show, no exceptions. Being in the same barn as females that are in heat can make a bull want to wander through the barn in search of them! So, the necktie will help to keep

him secure in his stall if his halter comes off, breaks, etc. and will help to avoid unwanted breeding. The age requirements for showing older bulls is also for exhibitor safety. A show ring full of older bulls can become a recipe for danger. So, while your junior exhibitor may be able to control your bull just fine, there will be other bulls in the ring that could potentially injure younger exhibitors. The World Show Steering committee has proposed lowering the age requirement to 13 years old and in the teen or senior showmanship class to show TLBT class 21 bulls and Classes 27-29 and Produce of Dam/Get of Sire classes if a Class 27-29 bull(s) is/are entered. This proposed change is pending as it requires the approval of The TLBAA Board of Directors. If approved, it will take effect at the conclusion of the 2019 World Show in June. As always, lets all play by the rules and keep the competition fair. Remember, this is what we do for fun!

Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow

Presidents

Message

Hello TLBAA members! Guess what? It’s my favorite time of the year. Longhorn weekend is coming up and I cannot wait! Also, our TLBT and world qualifying show will be held at the Fort Worth Stock Show during the first weekend. Please feel free to come out and support our hard-working youth!    TLBT members and breeders, at this show the visitors always love to come and look at the animals. They usually ask me plenty of questions. I’ve been asked questions like “why do they wear nose rings” or “do only males have horns”. I’ve also been asked questions from experienced cattle ranchers and breeders like: “How do you judge longhorns?” Or “do you market them?”. Members, how you answer these questions are vital to the Longhorn industry. Our job as TLBT members are to lure others in and make this organization even bigger. We want others to appreciate our breed just like we do.   I was talking to one of my ag teachers the other day about our Longhorn heifers showing at junior shows. Members, please know we can do that! If we work on this breed and inform others about our cattle, this breed will be at that point. Our breed has so much potential! Our circuit is truly a family to me. No one in any other show circuit is as kind and supportive as the TLBAA is and I am very proud to say that I am a part of this organization.   I wish everyone the best of luck at Fort Worth and I can’t wait to see you there! 

Gabby Curtis

Brindle! 4.) Where did you earn your first award? What type of award? My first award that I really remember was my buckle that I won for showmanship! I won it at the Louisiana Longhorn Show 5.) What is your funniest TLBT moment? Honestly, one of the shows recently I thought another parent was my dad and I was trying to show him something on my phone. 6.) What has been your biggest challenge showing Longhorns? Long days. Sometimes I get tired! 7.) What is your favorite movie? The Grinch!

42 | January 2019

ORAN CHAMBLISS 8.) Do you enjoy showing Longhorns? Why? Yes, because I love my cows and I get to hang out with my friends! 9.) What person has influenced you the most? My Nana 10.) If you were going to be turned into a mythical creature, what would you want to be? A dragon 11.) What is your favorite season? Why? Summer because no school and I can swim 12.)

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:

MORGAN WOODWARD 1.) How old are you? I am 16 2.) How long have you been showing Longhorns? I have been showing for 2 years. 3.) What is your favorite thing about the TLBT? I get to experience new people and get to show my favorite animal. 4.) Who is your role model? My role model has to be grandfather, no doubt about it. 5.) What do you think the most important trait to look at in a Longhorn is and why? I believe that the most important trait on a Longhorn is a good butt because as I’ve seen not many are wide from stifle to stifle and it also creates a good strong top. 6.) What is your favorite show and why? I like all of the shows I go to big or small, but just because the scholarship money involved I like the autobahn show because it really helps towards college. 7.) What is your best TLBT memory? Whenever I was in the Brenham show  last year and we had to have 2 rounds of teen showmanship because there were so many people and I got called in for the final round and I was so excited that I had gotten picked and try to show in the next qualifying round but they recognized me and told me I had to wait and I ended up getting 4th place showmanship at my second ever show. 8.) What is your favorite restaurant? My favorite restaurant would have to be Counter Cafe in Austin Texas even though they have some very good food their Counter Burger is to die for. 9.) What is your favorite Longhorns name and why? My Favorite Longhorn named would have to be Fireball because she was my very first show heifer. 10.) What advice would you give to a newcomer to the TLBT? My advice would be to just to give it your all if you think you can do it and stick with it because you learn so much while doing this that will help you later in life and you meet many people that will become great friends.

NEWS On the Trail...

This Is How A True Texas Cowgirl Made Her Mark On Big-time Cattle Ranching Della Serna always wanted to be a cowgirl. Now the savvy South Texan has risen in the FFA ranks and is carving a path as a rancher. By David Sikes • Reprinted with permission from Corpus Christi Caller Times RIVIERA, Texas — As far back as Della Serna can remember she wanted to be a cowboy like her dad. Or a cowgirl in her case. She got her first horse about the time she enrolled in grade school. She named the gentle gray mare Golden Rose. “Della started following me around the ranch when she was about 5,” said Serna’s father, Felix Serna, who is director of registered livestock operations at  El Coyote and La Paloma ranches near Kingsville. “And she began earning wages on the ranch at age 12.” What was her job?  Mostly, cleaning horse stalls and absorbing everything she could about cattle ranching.  “Sometimes I’d help move cattle on weekends when they were shorthanded,” said Della Serna, 34. “I  didn’t know what I was doing or how much I was learning at the time. But it helped me establish a foundation for the cattle business, plus a good work ethic.” Serna’s father said Della was always a self-motivated, focused child and a  voracious reader. He recognized her  early desire for the freedom and independence of the ranching profession, a life Della describes as both simple and complicated.  “And she’s never been afraid of work,” Serna said about his daughter, who was president of her FFA chap-

Della began following her father around the ranch when she was about five and began working at the ranch when she was 12. Now, Della plays a major role in the ranch’s large cattle and pure-bred operations, maintaining records, dealing with genetics, keeping up with USDA regulations, managing procedural schedules for livestock, halter breaking and showing animals, while marketing the ranch’s prized cattle to prospective buyers.

ter at Kaufer High School in Riviera and class valedictorian in 2002. She now serves on the Board of Directors for the Texas FFA Foundation. “We’ve been working together at the ranch for 22 years now.” Today, Della plays a major role in the ranch’s large cattle and pure-bred operations, maintaining  records, dealing with genetics, keeping up with USDA regulations, managing procedural schedules for livestock, halter breaking and showing animals, while marketing the ranch’s prized cattle to prospective buyers. Part of her marketing duties involves writing articles for trade publications about innovations and best practices perfected at El Coyote.  But she didn’t learn all of this just from watching her Dad.  Serna  earned a bachelor’s degree in agriculture economics and marketing with a minor in communications from Texas A&M University-College Station and holds  a master’s  degree from Purdue University. Plus she spent a semester in France, broadening her  perspective on international agriculture and was an intern for U.S. Rep. Stevan Edward Pearce of New Mexico. Serna credits FFA for showing her the agricultural possibilities available to her. Riviera’s former ag-science teacher,  Doby Murr, said Serna was a powerful force in his FFA chapter, who was instrumental in the team making a trip to Washington, D.C. her senior year. While the organization is well known for its roots in animal husbandry, Serna said today’s FFA is as much about public speaking, parliamentary procedure, world

affairs, business, leadership, and science. In a word, today’s FFA is about grooming students for success, said

Just Like Old Times submitted by Betty Baker

Doby Murr, who has retired from teaching, but remains in touch with Serna, one of his brightest and most ambitious students. Serna’s father said Della has always been good at separating her role as daughter from her professional responsibilities at the ranch. Often the two see eye to eye on work issues, but not always, he said.  “She’s opinionated, but she researches her opinions well,” Felix Serna said, “Della is very astute about the business, and she stays on top of ranching trends and keeps me well informed. It’s a good partnership, not just a father-daughter relationship. For me, it’s been a blessing, to be honest.” After graduating from high school in Riviera as valedictorian and FFA president, Della Serna earned degrees from Texas A&M and Purdue universities and returned to south Texas work on a ranch with her dad.

Members can enter in two ways: Come to the event in Lawton, Oklahoma the first weekend in October or find a satellite location near you the weekend before. If you are able to participate each year, you can see the horn growth your animals acquire from year to year. But Horn Showcase is much more than seeing who has the most horn; if you make the trip to Lawton with your animals, the Futurity and the chance to win part of the purse money beckons. In the Futurity, more than the amount of horn is taken into consideration. A panel of five judges also evaluates the animals for conformation, color, and overall body condition.

For those of you with outstanding bulls, Bull Alley is your opportunity to put your animal literally in the spotlight. Besides competing in the measuring contest, your bull will have his moment to shine during the Bull Alley celebration. This is a great chance to put a young bull in front of an audience or to brag on a proven producer. The Bred and Owned Heifer sale showcases the best young heifers that our industry has to offer. Breeders can bring their outstanding heifers to the sale or this is the opportunity for you to improve your herd. The Horn Showcase cow sale brings in proven producers. Horn Showcase offers educational seminars for the members. A Friday evening banquet offers everyone a way to relax and share stories. An area is set up for vendors and our generous sponsors. In the upcoming issues of Trails and on Facebook, we will delve into more detail on the various segments of Horn Showcase. If you have any specific questions, please direct them to salesandevents@tlbaa.org.

Membership Matters

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 50 | January 2019

to 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 four-digit 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 dam at the time of service.

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


By Rick Fritsche, Registrar 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 adhering 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.

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 (32-40 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 Photo courtesy of Little Creek Longhorns 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 re-breeding 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.

DRAGON PEARL may be the most consistent and extreme cow in TL history. She is sired by Drag Iron, out of famous dam Field of Pearls. At a young age was multiple Horn World Champion, weighs 1645 lbs and has produced 3 over 80" sons who are age 4, 3, and 2, all natural births. At DCC the goal is not to raise a herd of 1600 lb cows, but rather to produce some extreme genetics that can be used to correct other less desirable genetics that are well below normal size. Her 3 sons can increase horn and body using their semen. Buy direct from DCC.
