EDITOR’S NOTES SO MANY WAYS… If you think the only way to participate in Longhorn activities is to have record-breaking horn, then just turn the pages this month to find a host of ways to compete, to recognize others or to simply enjoy the company of fellow Longhorn enthusiasts! First, how to get your Longhorns where they are going, whether to a new owner, home to your ranch or to the vet. Turn to pg. 12 to learn more about the special considerations when hauling Longhorns, whether you choose to pull your own trailer or to utilize the services of a hauler. Now, where to go? Well, your first opportunity to travel to breeder event is at the end of this month. The TLBAA World Expo featuring the TLBT National Youth Show and the TLBAA World Show in Belton, TX is a great place to learn more about showing animals and watch some great youth and adults alike show off their animals in the ring. Turn to pg. 10 for a full schedule and be sure to thank all of our generous sponsors found on pg. 11. This event is made possible by their generosity. If you can’t travel in June, then head to Lawton, OK in October for the TLBAA Horn Showcase. Horn Measuring, Futurity, Banquet, Bull Alley – there’s a lot to see and do and some great people to meet. If you can’t make it, you can still participate in the measuring contest via a satellite location nearer to you. Turn to pgs. 28-34 for rules and forms necessary to participate. If you are consigning to the bred and owned sale, that deadline is hitting soon! Entry deadlines for other competitions at the event are not until August. If no travel plans are in your future, you can participate in other ways. If you are an affiliate member, be sure to turn to pg. 49 to see the requirements for the Affiliate Prince and Princess Contest. All you need is a good photo of your heifer and communication with your affiliate to see if it can be considered to represent them. Another photo-only competition is the Rodger Damrow Colorful Calf Contest. It was a lot of fun last year and a very inexpensive way to show off the most colorful of your 2019 calf crop in Trails Magazine. All entries will be published in March 2020 Trails, with the one selected “Most Colorful” featured on the cover of that issue. Photo quality is very important so take your time and get a good shot. See pg. 43 for entry requirements. It is also time to start nominating deserving breeders for the TLBAA Special Awards and the Texas Longhorn Breeder Foundation Hall of Fame. More details can be found on pg. 45 to get you started thinking. More details will be in July Trails and online soon. If you are going to nominate someone, PLEASE SUPPLY ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION. The reasons to consider someone are important, and they will be published. With all the people who have dedicated their time and efforts to the Longhorn breed, we should be flooded with nominations. Start thinking!

Association News

Chairman’s Message Greetings, It’s been a little busy around the TLBAA this month. Besides the normal dayto-day operations in the office, it’s the time of the year when people are renewing their memberships. This year, when you pay your memberships, remember that it’s time to check and correct all your information that will go in the new Membership Directory. This is a great way to get your information out to all members, and it will be out there to everyone for two years. On that note, Myra and the gang have several options to advertise and highlight your ranch in that issue. Please check with them if you are interested in doing something like that. Last month’s Brood Cow edition in the Trails received lots of good feedback from some of the members. Readers were pleased to find some good information, reminders and updates on our special momma cows, what to expect and a good article on understanding Johne’s disease, its effects, and what testing can do to the value of your herd. I want to really thank Myra and the other writers for taking the time and submitting these articles. The World Expo is coming up this month and coming together to be a great one, again. The Horn Showcase, coming up quickly in October, is in full swing taking entries for the sale, futurity, Bull Alley and measuring classes. These two are the largest events that the TLBAA puts on, and your support is needed and will be greatly appreciated in making these happen. Sponsorship packages are available for both and you can contact Pam Robinson at the office, or any of the committee members if you choose to support them. The DNA committee is in place and has had a couple of meetings. They are still working on three options for the membership to look at and would like to hear your input on what you think needs to be done. Please contact the committee members and let them hear your voice and recommendations. The membership will have an opportunity to review what the DNA Committee comes up with as options. I want to take this time to remind members that the Parental Verification (PV) rule was rescinded in January and became voluntary at that point. There has been a good number of cattle DNA/Parent Verified voluntarily by members, and that is ok. I was made aware that the web page still had the requirements for registering 2019 bull calves to include parent verifying. This portion was taken down off the website as a requirement. You do not have to PV 2019 bull calves to register. If you choose to, that is fine. We’ve had a lot of positive talk about the new F1 Proposal and the F1 Heifers that will come of that. The expected starting date is August 1, 2019, but getting the database built in Horns for this program is taking a little time. The technicians that are designing and putting this in our systems are working hard to get it up and running by start date. Please be patient and we’ll keep you updated. The TLBAA will be running a 30 day special for registering ANY animal, any age, for the entire month of July for $15.00. This will help members who ran unregistered Longhorn mommas on commercial bulls a chance to get them in the New F1 program, as well as cattle someone was going to let grow out and forgot about them until it was too late and too costly to register them. Great things are happening with the TLBAA, and thank all the members for their faith in this association. To my Longhorn family, Thank You,

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

Haulin’ There are two things that must be considered from the moment you decide to move a Longhorn, and they are growing on each side of their head. Those horns are not only beautiful, but they require special consideration when it comes to equipment choices and handling requirements.

THE RIGHT RIDE

Cattle lowing and shuffling along, kicking up dust clouds while you push them along from horseback is not reality for the majority of cattle owners. When it comes time to get from Point A to Point B, putting cattle on a trailer and moving them is a necessary part of ownership. Whether you choose to haul them yourself or to enlist the help of another, knowing the basic requirements of hauling Texas Longhorn cattle is a must. 12 | June 2019

“I just need a truck and trailer, right?” Well, yes…. and no. If you do not plan to haul more than one or two Longhorns at a time, you can get by with a different trailer and pickup than a person who hauls a show string or takes larger loads of older cattle over long distances. The one thing most haulers agree on is width. Wider is better, with 8’ being the preferred width to be able to accommodate larger horns. While a Longhorn will turn its head sideways to get longer horns in a trailer, traveling any distance in that position increases the chance of horn breakage and can get very uncomfortable – leading to unnecessary stress. Any discomfort or stress can lead to an animal overly anxious to exit the trailer and they may not be as careful coming out, increasing your odds of broken horn tips. There are exceptions to the width requirement, such as hauling shorter horned show animals which may be tied in the trailer or hauling young animals. The length and type of trailer most commonly used is an aluminum gooseneck trailer ranging from 16’ to 32’. Ryan Culpepper raises and shows Longhorns, as well as operating Culpepper Ag Services. “My favorite trailer to use is an aluminum gooseneck. The balance, weight, hauling ease, and overall utility of the trailer makes it ideal.” Another important detail to consider inside the trailer is pinch points. Les Spray has hauled cattle his whole life and started hauling Longhorns several years ago. Spray defines a “pinch point” as “anything that a horn tip can go in, and if they do not move their head correctly or they get bumped by another cow, they could snap a horn.” “There’s not a secure trailer out there. They don’t make them,” says Spray. “There is no such thing as a trailer without them, but some have less than others.” In his opinion, Wilson trailers tend to have more pinch points than any other brand he’s used. Other considerations if you will be hauling multiple animals together is interior gates allowing you to have

Horns separate sections (cuts). Longer trailer could have 3 or 4 cuts, and many have a smaller section in the front end of the trailer suitable for a very young calf or to store feed and water for a long trip. You may also want to consider a ramp for loading and unloading. While hopping in and out of a low sitting cattle trailer doesn’t usually present a problem, Ron Bailey, a lifetime cattle hauler, prefers the added safety of a ramp after a bull slipped during unloading and his legs went back under the trailer causing injury. There is one type of trailer Bailey avoids altogether when hauling Longhorns and that is the punched side trailer. The round openings along the side are perfect for hooking a horn and breaking it off. The truck used to pull the trailer needs to have enough power to pull the largest load weight you think you will ever pull. For larger trailers, that is usually a ¾ to one ton truck, often a dually. Why a dually? According to Wes Clark, who has hauled Longhorns for 12 years and other cattle his whole life, the dual wheels on the rear of the truck help cut down on sway and gives a smoother ride. The hitch is a key piece of the towing package and needs to be addressed in relation to the trailer. Most goosenecks attach to a hitch in the bed of the pickup. It is not mounted to the bed, rather to the truck frame underneath the bed and usually require the bed to have an opening cut in it to accommodate the hitch. The benefits are not only strength and stability, but increased maneuverability compared to a bumper pull trailer. Can you use a bumper pull trailer with Longhorns? It is possible. Spray said he has seen an 8’ wide bumper pull that would have been perfect for moving a cow/calf pair or a couple of young animals. Bumper pull cattle trailers

are most commonly 16’ long. Unless you are moving a very light load a short distance, you should not just hook to a ball on your bumper, but instead install a receiver hitch that is mounted to the frame of your truck.

LOOK BEFORE YOU LOAD

Every time you use a truck and trailer, do a pre-trip inspection. Leaving an occasionally used trailer parked in a field and then hooking up and hitting the road is a recipe for disaster. “I don’t use my big trailer as often as the 24’, but it is important to move the trailer, roll the tires around, and make sure the battery is charged (battery for the electric jack and interior lights),” explains Darlene Aldridge, who both hauls her own cattle and has hired others to haul for her as well. “Also, make sure the license is current, and always make sure well in advance of using the trailer (if it has set up for some time) that brakes, lights, jack, and tires are in good condition.” She also says to be sure to maintain wheel bearings and to keep a record of when it is done. The wiring in pasture parked trailers often fall victim to being chewed up by mice, who seem to love the plastic coating. According to Spray, trailers do best when parked in a rock yard and when they move regularly. He also emphasizes the importance of keeping bearings maintained. “I’ll pull it in the shop and check bearings about every 7k - 10k miles. That is one thing you do not want to have problems with. You can pull in a truck stop and get trailer lights, but you can’t always find someone to fix bearings, and that will put you out of commission.” Make sure that floor mats and/or clean bedding are in place. Not only for the comfort of the cattle, but for more secure footing in the trailer as well. If necessary,

A check of the parking lot at Longhorn events is a good illustration of the preferred trailer type for hauling Longhorns.

Feature QUESTIONS TO ASK A HAULER 1. Do you have references? 2. Will cattle be rested, fed and watered on long trips? 3. Do I need to furnish hay/feed my cattle are used to? 4. Are there stops I’m not aware of? 5. What type of insurance do you have? 6. Are you experienced with Texas Longhorn cattle?

QUESTIONS YOUR HAULER MAY ASK 1. Who is paying for the haul? 2. Where do I pick up and where do I drop off? 3.  Do you have a good set of pens and will you have the cattle inside the pen? 4.  Can I get to the pens without getting stuck or damaging my truck? 5.  Are the cattle nuts or can they be loaded easily and safely? 6.  If the cattle are going out of state do you have health papers ready?

the client certainly makes things easier for the hauler,” Culpepper emphasizes. “Further, having all documents, addresses, and other load requirements readily available from the beginning allow for the hauler to give accurate quotes on delivery time and cost.” If you are calling in the services of a hauler, have the cattle penned and ready to load. Be prepared to tell the driver if any of the animals are nervous or aggressive, or have a problem being in with other cattle, so they can load accordingly. Be aware of potential calving dates and do not send a cow about to calve with a hauler. If you will be hauling your own, and multiple animals will be together, consider their size and temperaments before ushering them into the trailer. A note here about insurance. When using a paid hauler, any existing insurance covers losses at regular cattle market value, no matter what evidence you can present regarding the value of your Longhorn in our industry’s market. The owner of the animal, if they wish to be fully protected in case of an accidental loss of a valuable animal, must carry their own insurance on that animal.

LOAD ‘EM UP

The less stress involved, the safer and healthier the cattle are when they arrive on the other end. It starts with the loading process. “Have patience when loading and let the hauler take charge,” emphasizes Bailey “he knows who he wants to put where in the trailer. No hotshots, no flag whips, no yelling and minimum cussin’! If a cow doesn’t want to load and just stands at the end of the trailer turn her back and try again…beating on her and yelling ain’t gonna help anything!” Culpepper adds, “Make sure the animals can see into the trailer. Cattle do not like loading into a dark space.” You only have to see a Longhorn load or unload If you are hauling across once to realize that they are state lines, health papers are a very aware of where their must.

Once the safety checks are done, take a look at where the cattle will be loaded. Make sure there is adequate room to maneuver a truck and trailer, especially if you are having someone else come on your property to load. “Do not get mad if the hauler refuses to pull his rig down a snake trail to get to your pens,” says Bailey. “We always let folks know in advance that our rigs are 50-60’ long and we will not damage them for any reason.” Even when you are using your own equipment, it is sometimes easy to forget and put yourself in a spot where it is difficult to maneuver. Just be aware of you route to and from the loading spot.

Buying Longhorn Cattle At Auction: Recommendations For New Breeders There’s nothing like the excitement of a live Longhorn auction. Your friends are there. The auctioneers are entertaining. The pedigree reader educates you about the cattle. You may even have a beverage or two while socializing and meeting new breeders. Whether you are buying or selling cattle, this is your opportunity to improve your herd genetics or get a return on your investment. This return depends on how well you bought at a previous auction. You are about to get your grade card. This article focuses on guiding principles to consider when preparing for a Longhorn auction and establishing value for the cattle you are buying. Your long-term success in the business depends on it. In theory, a well-run Longhorn auction should bring a fair market price on that day of the sale. The bidding should rise up to Bid spotters work for the auctioneer, and the auctioneer works for the seller. If you need to take a break and think, you can rest assured they will come the true value price and stop reflecting fair back to check with you to see if you want back in. market value.

Marketing– continued from pg. 22 Opportunities happen in every sale if you are prepared. Usually, they come late in the sale after everyone has exhausted their budget. Some premier sales have five 90” animals and ten 80” animals with excellent pedigrees. The bidders are overwhelmed with so much quality that the perception of quality is diluted. There is only so much money in the audience and the prices ultimately reflect that. In another sale, a single 90’’ cow in a crowd of 70” cows will command so much attention that the buyer could overpay. The astute buyer is prepared when opportunity arises. Inspect the animals in person. If you can’t be there in person, have a trusted consultant or friend inspect the animals for you. Catalog photos tell only a partial story. Direct visualization better establishes value — how they act in pens, udder quality, horn tip direction, body size and conformation. Size does matter — you can’t assess size in an edited catalog photo.

mon unless you have a specific plan in place ready to implement. If you get caught up in just beating out the other bidder, you may end up wishing you’d lost once the auction ends and you’re committed to a high price. Know your competition. Sit in the audience where you can see the competitive bidders. They are usually subtle — a blinking eye here, a tipped catalog there, the nod of a head. Premium cows have reserve prices and the bid frequently gets there very quickly and rightfully so. The auction needs to move along so you don’t waste the buyers’ or sellers’ time. Humans have a short attention span. Your competitors are not always in the arena. There are internet bids, absentee bids and bids on the phone from professional consultants who buy for multiple clients that frequently bid against each other. Sometimes the competitor is actually no one when in the excitement, you are bidding against yourself. Bids seem to be coming fast and furious from everywhere and you don’t want to lose out. Trust me and just back off and take a deep breath. The auctioneer works for the seller. He will get back to you when the apparent bidding slows down. The seller frequently has set a reserve price and the auctioneer tries to get to that price so there is a sale transaction. Minimize emotional Being present at the auction so you can see the animals in person is better than relying on a catalog photo. buying. I say minimize Photos don’t show size and may be old photos, not representative of the animal at time of sale. because no one can totally eliminate emotionThe real question is, can you make money on this al buying. Neuroscience has proven that. Make a list of transaction in a few years? Why does the buyer pay a logical facts to help determine value. For example, that lot of money at a sale?

Longhorn Beef

By Myra Basham

Know Your Fat Content There are several types of customers who will be seeking out your Longhorn beef products and you will have different questions to answer for each of them in order to make your product one they will want to buy. 1. People who simply want to know how their food products are raised. 2. People who want grass fed, no hormone, no antibiotic natural beef 3. Health conscious people who want the lowest fat possible It is fairly easy to satisfy customers who only fall in categories 1 and 2 by telling them what your cattle eat, how they are managed and showing photos of your ranch with cows out grazing naturally, looking happy and healthy. It can be a little tougher to convince those who are sticklers for nutritional content and fat percentages that they are truly getting beef that falls into the leanest categories. This is even truer if you can’t provide them with a cooked sample at the point of sale. While you can use photos of it cooking in a pan to illustrate the lack of extra fat, you may want to consider anlaysis of your beef at some level.

Hamilton Meats in Weatherford, TX carries retail Longhorn ground beef and says it ranges from 96/4 to 96/10. They do not label the fat content but simply tell customers it’s at least 90/10 or better. Manager Katie Hamilton says when the beef is processed for others at their facility, they will do a fat analysis at no additional cost. The fat analyzing equipment basically consists of a test tube over a burner. When the ground beef sample in the test tube is heated up, the fat separates. It is them measured in relation to the whole. While many people simply use the published information from lab tests done throughout the TLBAA and from other experienced Longhorn beef sellers websites, Hamilton says anyone wanting to be sure of what they are selling to their customers should have their processor analyze the actual product they are selling. If you are wanting more extensive nutrition information specific to your own product offering, you may have the samples sent to a lab for extensive nutritional data. While there is an expense for such testing, it should pay for itself by drawing in those customers with health or dietary restrictions on fat intake.

*NEW* EXHIBITOR’S CHOICE

• Awarded to the owner who has the most animals entered and officially measured for the Horn Showcase. • There will be one point awarded for each animal entered in a measuring class. • Animals can be measured in Lawton or at satellite locations. • Animals must be listed with the same ownership name. Ownerships listed in a single name or two names associated with a ranch name will be considered as the same ownership. • Partnerships will be considered a separate ownership. • In the event of a tie, all winning owners will be declared as winners and receive award. Examples: John Smith, Ann Smith, John & Ann Smith, or Smith Longhorns will all be considered as the same ownership. (John or Ann) Smith/Brown Partnership will be considered a separate ownership.

• Get of Sire and Produce of Dam will each offer a Junior Division and a Senior Division. • Each Division is based on the age of the offspring of the animal entered. The Junior Division consists of offspring between the ages of two and five years of age. The Senior Division consists of offspring six years and older. • Sires must have three offspring in any (Jr. or Sr.) Division to compete in that Division. All offspring must be measured in TTT, TH & Composite. • Dams must have two offspring in any (Jr. or Sr.) Division to compete in that Division. All offspring must be measured in TTT, TH & Composite. • Both living and deceased bulls and cows can be entered since entries are based on measurements of offspring. • Scoring for each animal will be computed by adding the values of TTT, TH and Composite of all three offspring for a bull or both offspring for a cow. The bull or cow with the highest value of the total added measurements amongst offspring will be the winner. • Animals do not need to be present to compete in this class – can be measured at a satellite or in Lawton. • Only breeding animals (Bulls or Cows) can compete as offspring. • Offspring may be produced by natural breeding, artificial insemination or embryo transfer.

HORN SHOWCASE SUPERIOR AWARD

• One bull and one female will be chosen based on popular vote. • Animals must be present in Lawton to be eligible. • Ballots will be available at the TLBAA desk during the event for voting.

This innovative award showcases our most elite animals that possess the total package we all strive for. To achieve the Superior Award, animals are required to compete in the horn measurement contest, as well as be judged on conformation in the Horn Showcase Futurity. • To win the Superior Award, you must receive the smallest number in the points system. 1st is granted 1 point. 2nd granted 2 points, and so on. This will be the same for the Futurity as well as horn measurement. • In the Futurity, you must place in the top three in your class to be eligible to compete for the Superior Award, as well as placing in the top 3 in any measurement class (Tip to Tip, Total Horn, or Twist for females) or (Tip to Tip or Total Horn for bulls) to be eligible. • Example of how Superior animal is awarded: Animal with the lowest number of points wins “Superior.” If there is a tie for Superior, then both animals will be awarded.

HORN SHOWCASE FUTURITY

BULL ALLEY

ULTIMATE COW & BULL AWARD

Payout will go to the top 20% of the class. • Animals must be entered in at least one horn measurement contest. • Animals will enter the ring based on age. Youngest to oldest. When the animal being exhibited walks into the ring, the 5 judge panel will be given the animals DOB, and a horn measurement taken from the previous day. It will be a TTT, TH, Twist for the females, and a TTT, or TH for the males in the contest. • With the 5 judge panel, the high score and the low score will be thrown out and the remaining three judges will be added together for the final score. In the event of a tie there will be a tie breaker judge selected in advance. That judge’s score will be the tie breaker in the event of a tie. • Animals must measure in at least one measurement class to participate in Futurity as well as be eligible for a Superior Award.

Breeders

Butler Breeders Know No Strangers… If you have never attended a Butler Breeders event, then you probably don’t realize that in addition to raising exceptional cattle, this group knocks hospitality out of the ballpark. There are two social highlights to the Butler Breeders calendar. First, in the spring, a ranch visit and annual meeting. Second, the annual Butler Breeder’s Invitational (BBI) sale on Labor Day weekend in Lockhart, TX. This year’s ranch tour was hosted by Brennan & Michele Potts at their Rocking P Ranch in Emory, TX on April 5th – 6th. Brennan & Michele literally threw open the doors to their incredible ranch & welcomed us with open arms. Friday evening the group gathered for fellowship & exquisite refreshments enjoyed in the panoramic setting of rolling hills & green pastures. 2 The following morning, in what I have learned is the “Butler way”, folks enjoyed a breakfast befitting a king & the Potts family welcoming more friends, both old & new. With the threat of approaching storms & a chill in the air, Brennan guided us through the Rocking P herd. Hav- 4 ing already seen the heifers close to the house, everyone knew they were in for a treat. Brennan & Michele run two bulls owned in partner-

ship with Elmer & Susan Rosenberger. It was magnificent to see RVR Handsome Jack & RVR Django with their respective cows. The cattle were just another example of everything about Rocking P being impeccable. Rocking P is a straight Butler herd that has been diligently & passionately bred in the true reflection of the iconic Butler breed. As if we had not been spoiled enough, our hosts indulged us further with mouthwatering Texas BBQ. The Rocking P garage was transformed into a beautiful dining area for all to enjoy. As we settled ourselves for the meeting, the incoming storm rolled in & everyone got just a little quiet. I can’t help but think how the Potts’ have given me yet another true “Butler Experience”. I reflect back on the first time I walked into the BBI sale in Lockhart and the overwhelming feeling of being ‘Welcomed’. If you have the opportunity to attend either Butler Breeder’s gathering, perhaps like me, you will walk into the arms of this group & never look back. One thing I know for certain is that you won’t find better hospitality or a bigger welcome. On behalf of us all, a huge thanks to Brennan, Michele & all the Potts family.

Show your appreciation for your fellow breeders who work selflessly to promote the Texas Longhorn breed. Nominations for the TLBAA Special Awards and the TLBF Hall of Fame are now being accepted. See page 45 for more information.

AFFILIATE NEWS

AFFILIATE UPDATES We have been talking about the new and growing market in the Upper Midwest. Someone suggested today that it might be more appropriate to refer to our area as the Northern Plains. They might be right! Whatever we call it, one thing is certain… it’s an exciting area for Longhorn breeders, new and old. New breeders are enthusiastic, with fresh energy and ideas. Here is a snapshot GORDON HOWIE of one new breeder from our area, Fred Weber. PRESIDENT GKHOWIE@YAHOO.COM Fred is excited about building his Longhorn herd, and he is serious about doing it right, “I’ve raised and fed livestock my entire life, I chose Longhorn cattle for their beautiful colors, calving ease and unique horn shape. Having practiced animal husbandry in my previous Angus herd, I am using AI to advance the genetics in the Longhorn females that I purchased from Kenneth Roggow (Burke, SD) and Chuck Overturf (Parkman, WY). Many thanks to Gordon Howie for the use of his Bulls, and answering the countless questions that I’ve had since starting this adventure.” There are many who have been seriously bitten by the Longhorn bug. One of the regional radio talk shows spent time yesterday talking about Texas Longhorns in our area, and some of the Longhorn events. One of the interesting things is that it isn’t a radio station that focuses on agriculture. People are noticing what the GPTLA is doing. Our Regional Horn Measurement Competition and 4th Annual World Qualifying Longhorn Show are still several months away (August 16 & 18, respectively). These two events are already drawing participants from Fred Weber & his herd. several states. Among them are NEW BREEDERS. Tucked in between the two GPTLA events, on August 17th, is the Top Hand Invitational Longhorn Sale. The GPTLA is one of the sponsors supporting that event as well. All of these events take place at the Central States Fair. That is significant because attendance is around 130,000 people. The Texas Longhorn events have been a huge hit with fair-goers. Everyone loves to see Longhorns, and the exposure to so many presents opportunity to recruit new breeders and buyers, as well as new members to the GPTLA. In short, life is good and enthusiasm is high!!

The Spring Sale will take place June 1st at SLS Saskatoon. A nice group of yearling heifers, cow/calf pairs, yearling and two year old bulls are being offered.  Check the CTLA website for the on line catalogue, www.CTLA longhorns.com. As this is written the weather continues to be very dry and moisture is badly needed for the pastures.  Spring arrived extremely late and the grass is short. Discussions have begun on the planning of the Agribition show for November in Regina.  Question being asked do we have enough interest to make it a World Qualifying Show?  Let your CTLA Directors know your thoughts. Results of the June sale will be in the next report. Any rain not needed down south please send it our way.

The Southeastern Texas Longhorn Association would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the Southeaster Winchester Futurity in Lexington, KY. The Southeastern Texas Longhorn Association supported the Futurity by being the sponsor for the meal and by members helping volunteer for the futurity. We were glad to be able to participate along side the futurity and have a chance to visit with NEAL MARAMAN everyone who attended. We look forward to being involved next year as well. PRESIDENT The new director for Region 5 of the TLBAA, Reid Tolar, and his wife, Ashley, are NSMARAMAN@GMAIL.COM hosting an event at their home on June 22, 2019 in Prattville, AL. The event is being put on by the Southeastern Texas Longhorn Association (SETLA), of which Reid and his wife are both members. The plan is to spend the afternoon learning how to better our operations. They plan on giving everyone a quick tour of their small herd, line up an educational piece on how to better our longhorn herds and farming practices, and enjoy a meal together. More details to come but they would love for you to mark your calendar for that weekend if you are able to make the trip to come visit them! Please contact Reid (rgtolar@yahoo.com) if you will be attending or if you have any questions about the event/SETLA/TLBAA Region 5.

Presidents

Message

Hey TLBAA members! It’s Summer time and the month of the annual TLBAA World Show. As the World Show approaches, let us cherish the memories we made this show season and keep our fellow TLBAA family close. This show season has been one I will never forget. From the TLBT officer retreat in Glen Rose to showing my first T-Rex baby to Grand Champion Bull at the State Fair of Texas, the TLBT has created so many fun and cherish able memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you TLBT for giving me something to look forward to and thank you to every member who has inspired me to do my very best inside and outside of the show ring.    Thank you breeders and parents for being so supportive of these youth. Thank you for giving us this wonderful opportunity to exhibit cattle and learn from the best of the best. The TLBT sure wouldn’t be operating if it weren’t for you. And lastly I think God for this beautiful journey he has blessed us TLBT members with. I thank him for blessing me with cattle that I love so much and friends who will last forever.     One of the officer spotlight questions is what advice would you give to a newcomer to the TLBT. This is something that I didn’t have to think long about because it’s something that I’ve always believed and it is so true. Newcomers and non newcomers to the TLBT, always be willing to help! My first show was at the State Fair of Texas in 2015. My ag teacher, Tracy Krueger told me help, help, help! Sweep aisles, scoop for people, help unload, etc. Always be willing to help others! Every time I would sit down for longer than five minutes, my parents would tell me that I needed to help someone or sweep the aisle. I started that show working very hard. It’s become a habit now. I’ve learned that when you get used to working hard, it’s not hard anymore.     At the State Fair of Texas, I learned a lot and so have I these past four years. That hard work has definitely payed off. I have developed great relationships with breeders and I have learned so much from some of the best longhorn breeders in the nation. So TLBT members, my advice to you is..... help others because they’ll help you! And you will create some of the greatest friendships.

Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow

TLBT MEMBER SPOTLIGHT:

TESSA TRONZANO 1.) How long have you been a TLBT Member? I have been a TLBT for four months now. 2.) What do you think the most important trait to look at in a Longhorn female is and why? I think the most important Longhorn trait is broodiness in females so that they can raise good calves and carry on the breed. 3.) Who is is your favorite Longhorn and why is he/she your favorite? My favorite Longhorn is LV. She is my favorite because she was my very first Longhorn, and I love her personality. 4.) What do you do outside of showing Longhorns? Outside of showing Longhorns, I am an athletic trainer for my school’s football team, and I also show fancy chickens. I enjoy watching the Dallas Stars Hockey team and cheering on my high school football team. 5.) Who is your role model? My parents and grandparents are my role models. 6.) What is your favorite Longhorn show? Houston stock show and rodeo is my favorite show. 7.) If you were at the beach, what is the first thing you would do? The first thing I would do at the beach is turn on country music and go in the water. 8.) If you wrote a book, what would you write about? If I wrote a book, it would be a children’s book about my 3 legged Golden Retriever and his daily adventures.

TLBT OFFICER SPOTLIGHT: TLBT Officer Position: Treasurer Age: 14 1.) Why did you join the TLBT? I wanted to promote the iconic Texas Longhorn breed and get involved in a showing project. 2.) What is your favorite Longhorn show, and why? My favorite is the Stillwater, OK Spring Shoot-Out because it is often the weekend of my birthday. I also like the show location and atmosphere. 3.) What is your favorite Longhorn color and pattern? My favorite longhorn color is tan. I like this color because it looks clean and natural. 4.) Where did you earn your first award? What type of award? I earned my first award at Autobahn 2015. I won the intermediate speech competition. 5.) What is your funniest TLBT moment? My funniest TLBT moment was when we were doing the cow wash at Fort Worth Stock Show, and it ended up in a soap war. 5.) What has been your biggest challenge showing Longhorns? My biggest challenge is trying to figure it which cows to bring to a show! I guess we need a bigger trailer!

JACOB LOWRIE 6.) What is your favorite movie? My favorite movie is The Greatest Showman because I can connect to it in many ways to my life 7.) Do you enjoy showing Longhorns? Why? I love showing Longhorns because it is an iconic symbol of Texas and the experience is great! 8.) What person has influenced you the most? I can’t really say just one. The whole Longhorn community has influenced my life in many different ways. 9.) If you were going to be turned into a mythical creature, what would you want to be? I’d be turned into a leprechaun because I like to make people laugh. 10.) What is your favorite season? Why? I like spring the best because the grass is growing and the weather is nice. 11.) What is your favorite quote? Why? “Fall down 7 times, stand up 8”. I really like this quote because it represents perseverance and determination, something that a showman needs. 12.) What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be an architect when I grow up. 13.) What is the best part about being a TLBT member? By being a TLBT member, I am able to promote the breed and hang out with some amazing friends. 14.) What advice would you give a newcomer to TLBT? Jump in with both horns! Be ready to do this for a long time, because you’ll love it!

How Can I Get My Child Started Showing Longhorns? STEP 1 Unlike most other forms of showing livestock, showing Registered Texas Longhorns does not require a youth to own the animal that it shows. In order to prepare your child to walk into the show ring, first that child must be a junior member of the TLBAA (see membership form at left). Parents are not required to be members unless they choose to become Longhorn owners and be a part of the whole Longhorn experience.

STEP 2

If you already own your own Longhorns, there are camps and workshops you can attend, or maybe some private one-on-one with a Longhorn show person, to show you the ropes of halter breaking and working with your animal. If you are fortunate enough to purchase a halter-broken animal, maybe even one that has already shown, then talk to someone to understand the process of entering and attending a show to be prepared to make your debut.

STEP 4
