EDITOR’S NOTES TWENTY WHAT?!

No matter how many times a New Year rolls around, I’m always amazed at how quickly the old year passed and excited to see what the new year holds in store. This issue shows a bit of the good and the bad in the annual Cash Cow listing starting on pg. 14 . While it shows that premium animals still bring good prices, there are noticeably fewer making the ranks and the overall total sales number has declined. The past year saw debate over the number of Longhorn auctions, how to develop better markets for those animals on the lower end of the pricing scale, and DNA testing. Debate is not a bad thing, though, and 2020 promises to show some positive results of better communication within the association and the industry. Another change to look forward to in the coming year is an improved version of HORNS hosted by a new company that promises better service, a better price and an improved online registry system. The existing HORNS system has already moved to their servers. If you haven’t already, go to www.tlbaa.org and click on the link there to access HORNS. Don’t use any saved bookmarks, shortcuts or history you may have. Your browser’s URL line should now read longhorn.digitalbeef.com. Your first chance to be heard regarding association business comes this month at the General Membership meeting being held January 17th at 1:30 p.m. in Fort Worth, TX, during Longhorn Weekend. Members must be present to vote on amendments to the by-laws of the association. The proposed changes can be found in the December 2019 edition of Trails Magazine. Be sure to read them and then come to Fort Worth and let your vote count. A full schedule of the weekend can be found on pg. 35 of this issue. There’s plenty more to do that weekend, so bring the whole family and enjoy a long weekend together at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. From meeting and awards to the Eddie Wood Cowtown Classic Longhorn Sale to Longhorn Shows, there is something for everyone to enjoy. As for the rest of the year... forget resolutions. If you haven’t already mapped your year out for shows, sales and advertising, get that calendar out and get busy. Many event dates are already published on the last page of Trails each issue. If 2019 is any indication, 2021 is going to be here before you know it. Don’t miss out on opportunities to participate with friends and market your program! Speaking of marketing, turn to pg. 24 to learn how including promotional products in your marketing dollars can bring great benefits, especially in generating visitors to your ranch. And, as always, we are here to help with developing an advertising package that fits your budget and your plans. I hope to see you in Fort Worth! Blessings,

Association News

Chairman’s Message Happy New Year, Longhorn Family, I hope you all had a blessed and wonderful Christmas with your families and friends. I wish you a New Year of growth and profit with your cattle, and a positive start for the New Year in all that you do. Praying for a better year for every member of our Longhorn family. This issue of the Trails has the TLBAA financials and our yearly audit of the association and foundation, as well as the much anticipated “Cash Cows” information. Longhorn Weekend is upon us and I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the annual meetings, Eddie Woods Cowtown Classic and the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. We will be seating Directors for Division B at the Board Meeting on January 17, 2020, as well as placing an Executive Committee. Please remember there are several items that are on the agenda that were listed in the December Trails, for the Annual Membership Meeting on January 17, 2020. I ask you to look over carefully items that will be voted on by the membership at that meeting. Please try and be there for the meeting and vote. Your vote and opinion will count on these important items and bylaw changes. 1.) There are the backup Proposals 1 and 2 and the bylaw change language for Board reduction and Executive Committee reduction and description of what that would entail if it is passed. 2.) There is the bylaw change language on Voting electronically by email as well as regular mail on bylaw changes. 3.) A proposal on Bylaw change on the duties of the Secretary The “Year End Awards” and “Hall of Fame Award” will be given out on Friday, January 17, 2020, starting with a social and heavy hors d’oeuvres (finger food to us country folk) at 5:00 p.m. The awards presentation will follow at 6:00 p.m. (No sit-down meal this year). This will be a great time to visit, catch up with old friends, make new ones and help celebrate the award winners. Try to attend The Eddie Woods Cowtown Classic on Saturday, January 18, 2020, either in person or online through Hired Hand. If you have any questions, contact Pam at the TLBAA office or the Sale Chairs, Russell Fairchild 254-485-3434 or Keith Du Bose 979-277-2161. If you are around and can go to the Fort Worth Stock Show on January 20-21, 2020 please go watch and support the Longhorn shows that will be going on. You can find out more on the TLBAA website and also on www.fwssr.com . To my Longhorn Family, Thank You,

Keith DuBose, Chairman of the Board Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT To the Board of Directors of Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America Fort Worth, Texas We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America, which comprise the statement of financial position as of June 30, 2019, and the related statement of activities, functional expenses and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. 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 reasonable 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, 2019, 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

BL Monika Tuff 100,000 (10/15/13)

Cowboy Tuff Chex X BL Rio Monika 715 Texoma Spring Classic

The 72 Longhorns featured on the following pages sold at public auction in 2019 for $10,000 or higher. The total dollar amount represented here is just over $1.4 million. The past year saw a greater number of Longhorn auctions being held, from new affiliates sales to a partial dispersal and one individual breeder production sale being added, to a host of established yearly sales. These cash cows represent approximately ±5% of the over 1,300 registered head sold at public Longhorn auctions. Their total sale repesents approximatley 1/3 of the combined sales price of all the lots that crossed the block and sold. Daughter-wise, for 2019, Cowboy Tuff Chex and Cowboy Catchit Chex respectively top the list for total sales value of cash cows sired.

PROMOTIONS PAY OFF T

here is an effective way of increasing awareness of what you have to offer with your Registered Texas Longhorns that is affordable and appeals to the majority of potential customers. Give them something free. The interesting thing about free items is people are so attracted to “free gifts” that a recent study by the Promotional Products Association International* showed that nearly 10 out of 10 people were willing to drive out of their way to get a promotional product. What does this mean in the world of a Longhorn breeder? Well, it means it’s time to think about the experience people have when they do come out to view your herd. The world has become an insanely busy place. Getting people to slow down, take a drive and spend some time looking at cattle seems to be a big hurdle, especially to those who live in areas where people are unfamiliar with the Longhorn breed. Even enticing those who are current owners to come see what you have to offer can be a challenge. There is hope, however, that foot traffic to your property can increase without a huge investment on your part.

OFFER A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE

would appreciate a simple offer of a cold bottle of water, or for colder months a warm cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Having a cooler or a thermos in your truck or at the barn is not that much work, but the impression made is valuable. It never hurts to keep something quick and easy for a snack around in case a visit runs longer than expected and interrupts the guest’s meal schedule. While inviting them to a meal could be an option, simply having some snack items to hold them over is something most can do. 3. TAKE PHOTOS. This is especially important for those who are not yet Longhorn owners. Offer to use their phone and take photos of them with the Longhorns. Or, use yours and send them the pics. You not only help them have fun, you give them a lasting record of your animals and your hospitality. 4. GIVE THEM A TAKE-AWAY. If you have made the experience a pleasant one and cannot afford any extra expense at the moment, then making sure they get photos is a must for them to carry something away with them. However, having items on hand with your name or ranch name, as well as contact info on it, to give visitors is your best option to spread the word about your Longhorns. The cost of giveaway items can range from a few cents each to the sky’s the limit. Next we’ll look at some economical choices.

Always put yourself in your potential customer’s shoes. Consider the most enjoyable ranch visits you’ve gone on and think about why you enjoyed it so much. If you have never visited another Longhorn breeder, why not? Then imagine what the most perfect ranch visit would be for you. Odds are, it includes at least a few of the following: 1. EASILY ACCESSIBLE CATTLE. Driving around for hours trying to see cattle scattered in trees and brush may be a fun adventure for those with time on their hands, but most would like to spend more time viewing the cattle than looking for them. Having cattle gathered in a pasture with easy, quick access and no places to hide is ideal. If unexpected drop-in visitors make this hard to do, then have your cattle accustomed to a truck horn or signal to come get treats so they’ll be willing to receiving come to you. promotional 2. REFRESHMENTS. You don’t have to serve products* a dinner or offer a full bar. Most visitors

PROMOTIONAL PRODUCTS For those in the business of selling Longhorn beef, a pound of ground is an easy to offer giveaway. However, not everyone sells beef and not all customers come prepared to take a food product away with them. A common misconception is that only businesses with a hefty marketing budget can afford to give away items such as pens,

koozies, hats, or T-shirts. The range of possibilities is really endless when it comes to promotional items. Here are some popular options and a few you may not have considered:

ing or colors fading. As with all products, you can spend more and get a better quality product. This may be important if you are using them as takeaways for people who actually purchase animals from you.

INK PENS

T-SHIRTS

An ink pen is almost an expected item when you visit a business and for good reason. A cheap pen with just your name and phone number on it can cost you as little as 20 cents each by looking for a sale online. Yet who can’t use a pen? Admit it. You pick one up and keep it frequently. And, even if you’re not conscious of it, you see the name on it each time you use it. If you can afford it, invest in a better pen, one that will also allow your logo or brand on it with your name and phone number or website. Spending a dollar or more a pen can get you an item that people actually value as their favorite pen and draws the attention of those they use it in front of. Imagine the conversation...”That’s a nice pen, where did you get it?” You respond, “I visited the folks with the Longhorns and they gave it to me.” Well, if that person had been curious about the Longhorns, the idea of a free pen and hot cup of coffee while visiting them may be the push they need to make the visit. You may be laughing now, but take a look at the stats presented throughout this article. Whether they admit it or not, gifts attract people. A pen may not be a huge draw, but the next products could be.

Shirts are more difficult because of size differences. A quick look online found vendors who let you customize your order by selecting the number of each size you want. More economical shirts have a small imprint area on the pocket area (cost as low as $4-$5 each). The price goes up as you choose to imprint larger on the front or back of the shirt and as you add color to it. Price per shirt can jump to as much as $10 - $20 each based on style, quality and imprint area. Shirts would be more appropriate on a daily basis for actual buying customers or those utilizing your herd or AI sire. However, they would also make good promotions to give away to promote your business * on social media or to drive traffic to your website. You could offer to draw a name if they comment and share your post or draw a name from those who provide their e-mail via your website.

HATS I will speak to this one personally. I have only bought one hat in my life, because it was a team hat and it was on sale ridiculously cheap. But, I own many hats and wear them frequently. They were free, and all have a business name on it ranging from the TLBAA to Western Horseman. One of my favorites was a pass along (see above) for a horse racing farm in Oklahoma. I’ve had that one for 20+ years and still wear it. Many times I’ve explained to those who asked about it the story of the racehorse farm whose logo is on that hat. The approach to hats may not be giving them away to everyone who visits, but to everyone who purchases or shows a serious potential to purchase. It really depends on your ability to invest. A quick search online finds bargain hats with your logo on them ranging from roughly $3 - $5 each depending on quantity ordered. The biggest thing when looking at hats is to read the reviews of the product. Photos do not tell you what material is used or whether the hat will last more than a week without tear-

EVERYTHING ELSE Tape Measures: Tape measures in a wide variety of styles and lengths up to 120” can have your brand or logo on them for as little as $1.10 each. Even if you’re not in the horn race, almost everyone uses a tape measure. Calendars: Many banks and insurance companies give out small desk or car dash calendars. They can be had with your logo and contact info at the top for a little less than $1 each. Magnetic calendar for the refrigerator or side of a metal cabinet run $5-$6 and up for smaller quantities. Wall calendars can even be affordable if you opt for stock photos and just your business info imprinted on it, but if you want to have your own photos on it they can be as much as $8 - $10 each. Drinkware: Plastic cups, coffee cups, thermal travel mugs, drink koozies....there is a wide variety ranging from $1 - $5 each. It is an item that tends to get wide exposure beyond the person you give it to. As with everything, read reviews and be conscious of quality if you are looking for an item to give to people who have invested in your cattle. Quality isn’t as much of an issue if you plan to give away in a public setting or to everyone who visits. Visit a website such as National Pen or 4 Imprint and you will be overwhelmed with possibilities you never dreamed of, such as USB drives, power banks, sunglasses, ice scrapers, calculators, rulers, stationary products, flashlights... truly the possibilities are endless. continued on pg. 28

BE MEMORABLE The easiest way to get people to want to visit your ranch and view your herd is to have those who have already been there want to talk about the experience in a positive light. When you have visitors, take photos of them interacting with the Longhorns and ask for permission to use the pics on your website or in advertising. Any photos you can take that show how people will view the cattle, whether it is on foot gathered in a paddock close to the house or via gator or tractor with a trailer (think hayride) out in a pasture, use in your social media posts, ads and website. The goal is to make people want to come see your Longhorns and promoting it as an enjoyable outing makes it easier for people to take the time. Occasionally offer special open houses, farm tours or even a neighborhood or community “picnic”. Get creative. Tie in a take-away item to the event. Your goal is to make sure that people know they are welcome, and they will take something away from a visit that makes it worth their time. It could be the experience and the photos or it may be the hospitality and a warm cup of coffee - in a mug they could keep.

PARTICIPATE IN YOUR COMMUNITY Another popular and effective use of promotional items is to donate to shows, special events or charity functions to be given away in guest “goodie bags” or as a door prize, depending on the item. Useful items such as pens, sunglasses, note pads or even tote bags are welcome items for event giveaways. You may get recognition for sponsoring the event as well. Put your label on water bottles and hand them out at a local fun run or sporting event. Volunteer at school or civic events and wear clothing with your logo on it. There are a million ways you can get your name in front of your community without a sales pitch. while you may be wanting to drum up immediate business, building a good relationship with your community should lead to many more people visiting your ranch in the future. Setting up a ranch booth at local events is another good way to reach out and become known in your area. Have a few promotional items such as candy, pens or even brochures to entice people to interact with you. Talking to you should make people more willing to come see the Longhorns. If they don’t, they may have family or friends they pass the information to. You never know who someone knows. Never forget the value of human interaction. Social Media and print advertising are necessary for broader reach, but getting people to set foot on your place makes your success even more likely. *Source: 2019 Promotional Productions Association International.

IF YOU ARE A BEEF PRODUCER... Many Longhorn owners sell beef, many actually making a good income from it. Other seem to struggle to get a local market established. Promotional items are invaluable in both cases.

A POUND OF GROUND Those who sell beef successfully will tell you, giving away 1-pound packages of ground beef is essential to get people to try your beef. It also usually leads to customers. Many producers sacrifice much of the first animal they process to build their customer base. While often the pound is given away to someone who has approached at a farmer’s market or when they reach out with interest, there’s no reason that meat can’t be an enticement to get them to your ranch and possibly create interest in the animals as well.

BEYOND THE FREE POUND Once you have shown someone how good the beef is with that first pound of ground, then you may want to consider ways to reward their repeat business. If you want to stick to beef product, maybe offer some free steaks or a roast once they buy so many pounds of ground, enticing them to branch out into buying cuts. It may reach a point that you’d prefer not giving away the beef due to demand, so that is a good time to consider the other promotional items we’ve already discussed earlier in this article. Some other economical items that could keep your name/logo in front of beef product consumers in their kitchen: • Custom Recipe Cards with special instructions for cooking Longhorn beef • Jar openers • Pot holders • Insulated lunch tote • Oven mitts or pot holders • Salt or pepper grinder • Cutting board • Meat thermometer • Kitchen timer And for your biggest customers you can even get custom knife sets or grilling sets.

IMPORTANCE OF PRESENTATION Don’t get so focused on presenting your finished beef product that you overlook the importance of presenting the animals to visitors. While another livestock producer may understand that your pens are a bit of a mess or it’s winter and some of the cows are a bit under their normal body condition, those buying your beef want to see a clean, safe environment and what they perceive as fit and happy cattle. Ranch visits could possibly be even more critical when dealing with beef consumers wanting healthy products.

Nutrition

By Heather Smith Thomas

IMPORTANCE OF MINERALS for Cattle Health and Fertility Minerals are essential nutrients. For example, sodium, chlorine and potassium are crucial to maintain fluid balances in the body and blood. Sodium chloride (salt) should always be provided because cattle need more salt than is found in forages. Iron is an important component of red blood cells—enabling them to carry oxygen. Bone formation and milk production depend on calcium and phosphorus.

© Eva Hawker - Dreamstime.com

Calcium and phosphorus are called macro-minerals because they are required in fairly large amounts. Deficiency is generally not a problem because these minerals are present in high levels in many feeds. Phosphorus supplementation is sometimes needed, however, when cows are on dry grass or crop residues for long periods. Phosphorus levels in most harvested forages are generally adequate, unless it’s very poor quality hay. Calcium is adequate in most forages, but is higher in alfalfa than in grass. Other minerals such as copper, iron, iodine, manganese, selenium and zinc are needed in tiny amounts and are called trace minerals. Adequate levels of copper, zinc, manganese and selenium are crucial for a healthy immune system and reproduction. Iron is generally not a problem because there is an abundance of it in the soil. Reproductive performance in cattle, skeletal development in young animals, optimum health, and strong immunity all depend on these important trace miner30 | January 2020

als. Some soils and plants, however, are short on various minerals, leaving feeds deficient. Selenium deficiencies cause white muscle disease in young calves, retained placenta and infertility in cows, abortions, premature or weak newborn calves. In most geographic areas of the U.S., soils are deficient in selenium. Copper deficiencies are also widespread, resulting in poor hair pigmentation, fragile bones, impaired reproductive performance, poor growth rates and reduced immunity. Copper supplementation in certain regions has improved conception rates and immune responses to vaccinations. Forage and cattle studies indicate that zinc may be the most widely deficient trace mineral. Zinc is important in many body systems including production of certain enzymes (particularly for synthesis of DNA and proteins), carbohydrate metabolism, hoof structure and soundness, and male fertility (deficient animals have smaller testicles and reduced semen quality). Zinc-deficient calves may have swollen feet, scaly skin with open lesions, wounds that take longer to heal, loss of hair, excessive salivation, reduced appetite, reduced feed efficiency and growth rates, and impaired immune systems. Moderate deficiencies are not so readily recognized, but may result in decreased growth rate and impaired immunity and fertility. Calves born to zinc-deficient dams have lower levels of immunity even when fed adequate amounts of zinc. Manganese, another important trace mineral, is important for proper bone and cartilage formation— which directly affects bone growth in young animals. It is also crucial for optimum fertility in cows. Signs of deficiency in calves include skeletal deformities, swollen joints and stiffness. Many cattle producers use supplemental minerals to augment cattle diets. These are often supplied in salt/ mineral mixes, provided free choice. Consumption is varied however, with some animals consuming too much while others eat inadequate amounts or none at

The most important time to supplement trace minerals is during the last 60 days of pregnancy when the fetus’ immune system is developing, and during the 60 to 90 cays after calving—until the cow is rebred. all. Also, other aspects of diet (including certain minerals that may negatively interact with the supplement during digestion) may hinder absorption by the body. Because of this variability, some stockmen resort to individually dosing their animals by drench, bolus or injection—to make sure the cattle receive the necessary minerals. Providing important trace minerals (selenium, copper, zinc and manganese) by injection has been recognized as a reliable way to ensure that cattle receive them.

TESTING CATTLE Mineral content of soil determines availability of trace minerals in the crops grown. If several animals in a herd experience health problems, poor fertility, poor response to vaccination, low weight gains or other signs of poor performance, a trace mineral deficiency may be to blame. One way to find out is to have your vet

CALF PERFORMANCE Dr. Steve Blezinger (nutritional consultant in Sulfur Springs, Texas) says mineral supplementation of the pregnant cow is crucial for health of her calf. Her mineral status has significant long-term effects on how the calf grows and develops. “The developing fetus is totally dependent upon availability of essential nutrients from the dam’s blood,” says Blezinger. Trace mineral status affects a calf’s immune function and response to stress. “A study of calves from birth to weaning found calves from mineral-supplemented cows had greater response to vaccines, and lower rates of sickness. Healthy calves had higher serum concentrations of zinc than calves experiencing respiratory disease,” he says. Adequate trace minerals in the cow’s diet during pregnancy are crucial, since copper, iron, manganese and zinc are being stored in the liver of the developing fetus. A deficiency in these minerals cannot be “caught up” by supplementing the cow after she calves, since these minerals are not passed through her milk, except in colostrum. Until the calf starts consuming a mineral supplement on his own he will be deficient--unless he gained adequate reserves in his liver during his mother’s pregnancy and via her colostrum. This is why it is important to supply cows with adequate minerals, and why some ranchers hedge their bets with injectable trace mineral supplements to make sure every cow has enough of these important nutrients during pregnancy. 32 | January 2020

take blood samples or liver biopsies from the animals. This sampling is usually adequate to measure the level of most minerals in the body, though diarrhea, acidosis, stress, fever, trauma, etc. can alter concentrations of certain minerals in body fluids and tissues. When testing for mineral deficiencies it is important to test several animals and not just a sick one or one that died. Traditional recommendation is to check 10 animals or 10% of the herd, whichever is the most logical number for your herd size. But if you only have 20 cows, 10% (2 cows) is not an adequate number; you’d need to test at least 5 or 6 cows, At the other end of the spectrum, if you get a good sampling of 10 cows from a 300-cow herd, this might be enough animals to test.

SELENIUM DEFICIENCY Soils and feeds in many regions are low in selenium, and a few areas have too much. Cattle are unhealthy if they don’t have enough, and unhealthy if they get too much. Selenium is vital for proper body function, reproduction and a healthy immune system, but in excess it is toxic—causing loss of tail hair or hooves. Selenium, along with vitamin E, is crucial for producing an enzyme that protects muscle cells from damage, and important for muscle function. According to Dr. Steve Blezinger, a cattle nutritionist in Texas, selenium deficiency has been linked to reduced immunity, decreased reproductive performance, retained placenta, and poor performance. Selenium deficiency can lead to a wide variety of muscle diseases and weakness, reproductive problems, decrease in fertility, increased susceptibility to disease, and impaired heart function in young animals—especially if dams have inadequate selenium during pregnancy. Calves may be stillborn or die within a few days of birth. In some regions, white muscle disease can occur unless the dam was supplemented or the calf is given an injection of selenium at birth. Calves with white muscle disease may be weak, or die suddenly because the heart muscle is impaired.

COPPER DEFICIENCY Low copper levels in cattle can result in poor hair coat, reduced weight gains, impaired immune system, broken bones, or lower reproduction rates. One of the most visible signs of copper deficiency is change in hair color. Black animals develop a red tint and red animals become bleached and light colored. The coat becomes dull and animals may be slow to shed in the spring. In young animals, copper deficiency can result in diarrhea and higher incidence of diseases, lameness and poor response to vaccination. Affected animals may have a stiff gait; the ends of the cannon bones may be enlarged and painful, with sore fetlock joints. Pasterns may be

Even if calves have adequate levels of copper, zinc and selenium, stress (such as weaning) may still cause problems. Even if they don’t get sick, they may not grow as well as they should. “Silent pneumonia” could be a risk. upright, with the calf walking on its toes. Bones may be weak and brittle. Heifers may be late reaching puberty and fertility may be impaired. Cows may be slow to cycle after calving. Cattle may develop severe copper deficiency due to excess of other trace minerals such as molybdenum or sulfur. Deficiency may be primary when there’s not enough copper in the soil or plants grown on those soils, or secondary when other factors prevent utilization of copper. Elements that bind with copper to prevent absorption by the body include molybdenum, iron, zinc, sulfur, lead and calcium carbonate. When evaluating a forage sample for copper, always look at the copper to molybdenum ratio. If forages contain less than 8 to 10 parts per million of copper, they are borderline deficient. The problem is compounded when molybdenum levels are high.

ZINC “Zinc is deposited in high concentrations in the liver of the fetus, if the dam has adequate levels in her body, but liver levels decline between 30 days and 9 months of age. Calves may approach weaning with Photo courtesy of Cynthia Williams marginal zinc levels,” explains Blezinger. Signs of severe zinc deficiency include swollen feet with open lesions, excessive salivation, loss of hair, reduced appetite and feed intake, reduced feed efficiency and growth, and impaired immune response. Even if calves have adequate levels of copper, zinc and selenium, stress (such as weaning) may still cause problems. If calves are short on these important elements they are even more at risk when stressed. Even if they don’t get sick, they may not grow as well as they should. They may also be at risk for “silent pneumonia”.

INJECTABLE PRODUCTS It can be a challenge to get calves to eat enough mineral supplement. Even if their dams are eating it, trace minerals are not transferred through milk very well. To make sure all calves have adequate trace minerals, some stockmen give each calf an injectable product soon after birth. Several university studies showed the benefits of injected trace mineral product, evaluating effects on calf health and reproductive performance when injecting cows before and after calving. Injected products are absorbed rapidly and stored in the liver. This can last for about 2 to 3 months, depending on mineral status prior to injection. In a Texas A&M study, treated cows were given injections 30 days prior to the start of calving and again 21 days prior to the start of breeding. The trace mineral injections effectively improved copper levels (liver) and selenium (blood levels), compared to non-treated cows. In the Texas study, more cows became pregnant in the treated group; cows in the control group were 2.4 times more likely to be open. Making sure cows have adequate levels of trace minerals during pregnancy ensures normal bone formation and immune system development in the growing fetus, and enables the fetus to have adequate stores of these important minerals in its liver. This gets the calf off to a good start. Some stockmen give calves injections during the first days or weeks of life. The calf needs peak levels (not deficient) at the time of vaccinations, in order to mount strong immunities. Unless a calf has adequate trace mineral status, vaccination may not be able to protect him against disease.

Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow

Presidents

Message

It’s January and that means my favorite show is coming up! The Fort Worth Stock Show! The Fort Worth Stock Show is a very special show for me and it always has been. It is also one of our largest shows which that makes it even more fun! Majors are my absolute favorite. You can’t miss out on the good ol’ Cowboy Burrito or the cinnamon rolls with icing AND nuts. Fort Worth has been where I’ve made some of my greatest memories. Like watching the cattle sale, winning grand Champion with my bull at nine months old, and honestly spending a whole five days with my favorite people. The thing about our shows is that we usually only get three days with our longhorn folks! And then after Sunday, they go back to their home hundreds of miles away. That’s one thing I like about Fort Worth, it unifies us for a five whole days. In the TLBT, I have learned the importance of unity. Some of my bestest friends I only see a few times a year and that is at longhorn shows. These times that I spend with them are so fulfilling and so memorable. I can’t believe this will be my last Fort Worth Stock Show entering the ring as a youth exhibitor. I am excited for a new beginning but I am saddened that I will have retired from being president and I won’t be able to spend an amazing year with my favorite team and members. However, it’s in those moments of unity when I will return that matter. The TLBT is a whole family and I want for us all to cherish these very moments which we are unified and share our passion for cattle and for each other. Let’s make Fort Worth Stock Show an unforgettable experience!

TLBT OFFICER SPOTLIGHT: TLBT Officer Position: Intermediate Director Age: 13 1.) Why did you join the TLBT? To be more involved. 2.) What is your favorite Longhorn show, and why? Houston, I like the atmosphere. 3.) What is your favorite Longhorn color and pattern? Speckled/Grullia 4.) Where did you earn your first award? What type of award? Lufkin, Halloween costume contest. 5.) What is your funniest TLBT moment? When a cow cut me a flip in a non-haltered show.

TYLER LINDSEY 7.) Do you enjoy showing Longhorns? Why? Very much. I like being competitive and showing off my animals. 8.) What person has influenced you the most? My dad and Cody 9.) What is the best part about being a TLBT member? Having good friends. 10.) What advice would you give a newcomer to TLBT? Don’t give up. 11.) What would you like your future career to be? I haven’t decided. 12.) If you could be any animal, what would it be and why? Fish, they swim all day.

TLBT MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: 1.) How old are you? I am 16 years old 2.) How long have you been in the TLBT? I have been in the TLBT for two years now. 3.) What is your favorite Longhorn show? My favorite longhorn show will have to be ArkLa-Tex in October because it is just a fun show and that is where I won my steer from last year. 4.) What is your favorite popcorn? My favorite popcorn will have to be movie theater popcorn with extra butter. 5.) Who is your role model? My role model will have to be my mom because she does everything she can for me to do what I love to do and that is show my longhorns. We may not have a lot of money but she works very hard to support me.

ALYSSA LAFFIN 6.) What do you think the most important trait to look at in a Longhorn is and why? I think the best trait to look for in a Longhorn is its conformation. A heifer needs strong legs and a stable topline to support calving and to be able to protect her calf. Bulls need to be tall and strong, and they need to have strong legs. This is so they can track a cow and breed her with no trouble. Overall, conformation is vital to the Longhorns- and any breed- for longevity and production. 5.) Who is your favorite Longhorn? My favorite longhorn will have to be my steer who I won from ark-la-Tex last year. He is just my big old baby and he is just loving and he knows when I am having a bad day. He is just a big old puppy dog.

ATTENTION YOUTH! The TLBT will hold its Membership Meeting Sunday, January 19th at 1:30 pm in Cattle Barn 4 at the Will Rogers Complex.

JOIN US! FWSS TLBT SPEAKER SPOTLIGHT: 1.) When did you begin showing cattle? I began showing cattle when I was eight years old. My mom showed steers growing up and my family raised cattle, so it was a natural decision. 2.) What do you think the most important trait to look at in a Longhorn is and why? The most important trait to look for in a longhorn, and really any breed or species, is structural soundness. It doesn’t matter how powerful, feminine, pretty, etc. they may be. They need to be built right from the ground up.  Those wheels are important! 3.) How long have you been raising cattle? I have raised cattle technically all my life. My dad said the best rye grass he ever planted was the year I was born. 4.) What breeds do you raise? The list of cattle breeds Shelby raised gets quite extensive!  I grew up with registered Beefmasters and F-1 Brafords. We then added Brangus cross cattle to the commercial herd list. I’ve walked in the showring with Red Brangus, Beefmasters, Angus, Braunviehs, Crossbreds and Longhorns.  A fun fact for you, I was really involved with the dairy industry and have a warm place in my heart for those breeds. I showed Jerseys and one Holstein. Dairy judging even helped put me through my undergraduate degree...I was quite good at it!  And now, I married a big time Hereford guy and we bought a few Charolais.  There is always a joke about what breed I will bring home next. Honestly, I surprise myself sometimes!

SHELBY CHACHERE

5.) What advice would you give to a new showman? My advice to a new showman would be to give it 110% and then whatever else you have to give! Be honest with yourself on your effort of input and don’t be afraid to ask for help.  However much you think you know, there are people with much more knowledge and experiences that can help you get better.  This is coming from someone who always likes to be right.  However, when it comes to my cattle, I can put that pride aside to be better and have better. 6.) Who influenced you to begin showing/raising Longhorns? My county agent at the time first talked to me about the Longhorn breed. He heard about the scholarship and youth opportunities and said we should look into it. Next thing you know we have a whole herd.  However, when I first started showing, I was scared to death of those horns.  The Olivers had the entire champion lineup, or close to it, at my first show in Waco. John Oliver basically gave me no choice but to take this huge horned cow in the ring and said, “she’s sweet, you can show,  it will be fine just go”.  He is very convincing. I do not think I have ever held my breath for so long in the ring before. So, I have to give him credit for putting me in an uncomfortable situation in the ring and giving me a push in the right direction.

By John T. Baker

Editor’s Note: John T and Betty Baker and well known in the Longhorn show world and the TLBAA, not only from past involvement, but as hosts of the long-running Sunrise Showmanship Camp for youth. I have heard many references to “touch and talk” with credit given to John T, so when I came across this explanation straight from John T himself I thought it would be good to share again. You can find more handling and halterbreaking information in the March 2019 Trails article “Halter Breaking 101”.

TOUCH AND TALK! How to Bond With Your Animal Originally published in April 1995 Trails Magazine I’m of the strong opinion that it is very important that the exhibitor or the trainer bond with the animal from the beginning. One of my premises is that you need to first be able to touch that animal anywhere on its body so that the animal gets very comfortable with you before you begin the training process. Do a little “touch and talk” to the animal —Literally while you’re touching and rubbing the animal. l’m not talking initially about brushing him. l’m talking about when the animal is still green, and you start working with him so that you can go up to him easily. Touch the animal all over. I normally go from the shoulder, back over the side and over the rump, down the rump all the way to the hock and then to the pastern. Typically by the time that animal is standing still, and you’re really working in a bonding relationship, you should be able to touch that animal between the legs, either on the udder of the female, or on the testicle system of the male. Normally, that’s an area where an animal seems to slow down, and shall we say, gain some trust in you. If a person is not apprehensive, that can be done literally in five minutes, once the animal is slowed down because you can just continue to touch him. I keep saying the words, TOUCH AND TALK. A lot of people might think it a bit foolish to talk to an animal,

38 | January 2020

but I think it’s imperative to talk to your animal so that it becomes familiar with your voice and noises at the same time that you’re touching it. I don’t care what you say or what you see, the animal becomes used to your voice. The noises that pass in the vicinity of your animal are varied, as we know, when we go on the road. But that touch and talk, in my opinion, is very important in bonding with the animal. One has to overcome any fears one might have because cattle quickly read fear in a person, and it’s very difficult to bond if the animal senses fear in the exhibitor. And I’m not talking about in the show ring, but during the training process. Again, I think it is ultra important to touch and talk to animal very regularly in order to create this bonding we speak of, and therefore this animal will respond to you. It can quickly be seen in the show ring how much time an exhibitor has spent touching and talking with his animal. So my suggestion is that in the training process, the trainer must spend several cumulative hours touching and talking with the animal. I personally use communication - no particular words - but just like you were talking to a horse. If I want the animal to go forward, 1 may give it a little “click, click,” “lets go forward,!’ and get the animal to move forward. By the same token, when I come to a stop with that animal, I’m sort of talking with a “whoa.” I think that if you are bonded with your animal, over time you can nearly talk that animal into a start or stop with only a slight pressure of the halter or lead rope. In summary, bonding, in my opinion, would be a combination of time spent with the animal, touching him and talking to him, until the animal is very comfortable and relaxed. It’s imperative that you get that animal in a relaxed condition when you’re working with him toward the show. I hope this has been a brief help to you. Have a great day and we’ll see you up the road!

I n M emoriam

Johnny Tyrone “Ty” Wehring 1939-2019 Johnny Tyrone “Ty” Wehring passed away on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. Ty was born May 10, 1939 in McGregor, TX where he resided until 1966 when he moved to Houston, TX. He learned the ropes of the tool business working for Black & Decker and Ingersoll Rand before he started his own company, J&T Tool and Supply, Inc. in 1977. We are all alive, sure, but he was somehow so much more so. He sparked! He had a sardonic wit, and precious little tolerance for fools. He was a sweet mixture of rough and polished. HIs overalls were pressed, he always smelled good and he wore his Ferragamo loafers at his ranch. Ty was meticulously neat and organized. Everything had a place. Ty had friends far and wide, friends with rough and calloused hands and friends with polished nails. He fit in with both. He was a gentleman, a rancher, a businessman, a cowboy, a cattleman, father, friend, joker and a man who loved his family. Ty was most proud of his family, which includes his sisters Betty Terrell and Bobbye Goff; children Tracy Krueger and husband Craig, Scott Wehring, Carrie Wehring and wife Jacqui Davie. He was grandfather to Hannah Moon and Jake Murphy as well as great-grandfather to Eisley Sage Moon. Ty was fortunate to spend the last 20 years with his love, Sharon Grabarkwitz. May he rest in eternal peace with sweet calf noses and soft puppy ears forever in reach. And may his bull, Country Star, that he loved so much, rejoice that Papa is home. Memorial donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

“The Wehring Family would like to say thank you to all Longhorn breeders for their support, condolences and friendship over the years. Ty loved the breed and the Association.” 40 | January 2020

AFFILIATE UPDATES A new breeder’s journey to Longhorns After 30+ years in the dairy business, the Pittman family… Mike, Melanie and Marissa, sold GORDON HOWIE their cows. PRESIDENT GKHOWIE@YAHOO.COM Their first 3 Longhorns were purchased at a sale in Nebraska in 2009. Their herd now numbers 26 (and growing). They use AI extensively. Some of the bulls they have used include Overkill, Drag Iron, BL Night Chex and Saddlehorn. Melanie says, “The wild color and patterns are fun, their hardiness and being great mothers are attributes we enjoy. But most of all they are smart! The oddest question we get about our Longhorns is ‘don’t we fear their horns’? While you do need to be aware of where their horns are, our cows are gentle and horns just add to their beauty. We also don’t lose calves to coyotes as do our neighbors with “regular” cattle.” “We are kind of partial to ‘blue’ cattle, so we have a few of those as well. A few years ago we learned that Mike’s cousin, Gordon Howie is also a longhorn enthusiast. Gordon and other area Longhorn breeders stated a Longhorn show at the Central States Fair. In 2019, they added a horn measuring event and a sale. The sale went very well, and the show was well attended. A lot of hard work by Gordon and crew made for an excellent event. We are looking forward to participating in 2020.” The Pittmans are typical Longhorn enthusisats. They love their cattle, and always see to have room for “just one more”. The Upper Midwest is experiencing “Longhorn Fever”. It’s highly contagious, and there isn’t any known cure. For now, the only known relief is buying another Longhorn.

NEWS On the Trail...

Owning Longhorns — You Never Know Who’s Going to Come By Submitted by Dagmar Schaab When we got in to Longhorns 1996, we never dreamed of all the people we would meet at our own doorstep just because we have Longhorns! After we bought land everyone said: “you have to buy cows for ag.” My husband, being German, said if he was going to own cows he wanted something iconic, a “real American cow”. So, we got Longhorns! We bought our first two cows at a sorry, middle of nowhere auction, and the cows were in really bad shape. The two we bought had bull calves at side. We decided some time later we would breed the cows and, long story short, that was how we were lucky enough to meet J.B. Hunn. J.B. took a shine to us and us to him, and he introduced us to many great people in person or via telephone. Lana Hightower, Ben Gravett, Billy Buchanan… too many to name. Greg Briney, who trained and showed one of our first bulls, “Blue”, at the stock show! All very exciting times and fun! We went to shows, met artist Sherry Steel and her husband, bought one of her pictures. Having Longhorns, you meet lots of people being out and about, but in our case, lots of excitement has come straight to our door! One instance, 11-12 years ago, I got a telephone call from a New Jersey travel agency, they had a bus full of people from England that were traveling through the U.S. and wanted to see farms, ranches, and cows. They asked if they could include us in their stop coming in a few days. I said yes, and so we had 15 or more retired farmers out in our pasture enjoying their first look of Longhorns, they had a blast Sydney Yeager hand feeding them cubes. Since then we have had many people from all over the U.S. and the world, wanting to stop and see the herd. This past 18 months alone we have had people from Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Colorado, Australia, France, Ireland, Germany… the list goes on. I have become friends with a gentleman from France, Roland, that is nuts about cows. He emailed me years ago asking if he

could visit while in Texas, so we met in 2016, he was elated. Late last summer a photographer, Jill Coultas, called and asked if she and some “guys” could stop by in the next few hours and take photos of the herd. The guys were Reese Gilkes & Matt Bishop, and they were traveling the world on a Honda scooter with a homemade side car. Their travels were for donations to fight modern slavery worldwide. Their website is www.asseenfromthesidecar.org if anyone wants to view. Very nice guys, the U.S their next stop at that time and everywhere they went they took photos and updated their travels for people following. So, of course while in Texas they had to have photos of them with Longhorns! In May of this year I got a call from Debbie Yeager, she asked if she and her daughter, Sydney, could come by and take photos of Sydney with the herd. Sydney was celebrating with these photos her acceptance to the University of Texas at Austin for fall 2019. Congrats Sydney, and thank you for celebrating with us! The most exciting event just happened! October 30, 2019 I got an email from a gentleman, Mr. Alfredo Hernandez, who was trying to reach us. He wanted to know if I would be willing to let them film our Longhorns for a Latino TV Network, Estrella TV, based in Los Angeles, California as well as in Dallas, Texas. It was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their Radio (left) Matt Bishop, photographer Jill Coultas, Jo Schaab and Reece Gilkes. Music Awards in Dallas, a 42 | January 2020

The Saga of Red Bull Submitted by Todd, Amber and Cody Crist Red Bull was born 4/10/19. We noticed he wouldn’t stand to nurse. We watched him all day until his mother lost interest and left him. We loaded him up and brought him inside and my wife noticed his foot was swelling. We were able to get him started on bottles. Our neighbors and great friends said their vet could xray it, but that he only worked on horses. We hoped he wouldn’t notice the difference! We loaded him in the back of Amber’s Yukon Denali and took him to see the vet. At the vet’s office he was told to act like a horse. This worked, as he got right in. An x-ray was taken to confirm the fractured bone. The bone was set and a cast was placed. He immediately felt better and started eating many bottles per day. We had to bottle feed him at this point because we couldn’t get the cast wet. We made a stall for him in our shop and he was fed twice a day by us and all the local neighbor ladies and kids. Our dogs and Red Bull grew to like each other very much. They like cleaning the  milk bubbles from his mouth while he was eating. We had two casts put on while he was growing. In the end there was no evidence of the fracture, and he is now fine and has moved to the pasture. He is happy with the other cattle although he still likes a curry comb, fly spray and he prefers to eat his cubes one by one from your hand. He also likes to come in the barn when the weather is bad, too hot or cold.

red-carpet country music awards celebration. It was to air November 7, 2019, so they only had a few days to get this done. Asked, done, they came three days later to film with a famous artist: Rob the Original, with our cows. It was something! Unfortunately, due to scheduling and time, the cows only aired on the west coast, not here. We are waiting on our copy of it all and can’t wait to see what they did! There you have it, excitement, people from all over beating a path to our door just because we are lucky enough to have Longhorns! I don’t know how we got so lucky but enjoying every minute of it and of course we think our Longhorns are extra special!

The Road To World Show

Showing Females From page 47 in The TLBAA Handbook: Females : “Any female over 30 months of age must have either a nursing Texas Longhorn calf (no cross bred calves will be allowed to be shown at side) at side or the results of a pregnancy test listed on the health certificate, or the animal is not eligible to show. Pregnancy information and/or age of calf at side will be made available to the judge.” It’s important for us to remember that we are showing breeding cattle (except steers of course). The value in our females is in large part her ability to become pregnant, and then go on to deliver and raise calves by being a good milker. Regardless of her appearance, a female that is not able to conceive or raise calves reduces her long-term value. This rule is in place for those reasons. By 30 months, all females should have either given birth, or be pregnant. Only pregnancy information listed on a health certificate, issued by a licensed veterinarian, will be made available to a judge at a show. While we all know our cattle well, only pregnancy information that is listed on a health certificate will be considered valid. So if you want a judge to be aware of her pregnancy status, its imperative that you have her palpated or sonogramed, and those results be listed on the health certificate and made available to show chair. And remember, this is what we do for fun!
