EDITOR’S NOTES HAVE YOU HEARD? If you were not present for the meetings in January during Longhorn Weekend, then you have a lot to catch up on in this issue. Starting with the letter from our new Chairman of the Board Keith DuBose and followed by highlights of the three items the membership had, and will have, a voice in, there’s a lot of buzz in the association of good things to come. If you have never attended the General Membership Meeting in Fort Worth each January - you should! It’s a chance to vote on items which affect how important issues are handled. It’s also a chance to ask questions and let your voice be heard by the entire board. This year, the subject of DNA testing was front and center and the membership voted to halt all further mandatory Parent Verification of bulls born January 1, 2019 or after. Voluntary DNA testing for AI certification and Parent Verification continue as people choose to do it. See pg. 12 for more details. Another issue being brought before the membership is the proposal to reduce the number of TLBAA board members to 15. See pg. 12 for more information and to see how you can cast a ballot on that topic. The TLBAA Beef Committee is announcing the new and improved Registered Texas Longhorn Beef Producers Program. You can learn about this exciting step forward in growing the market for Texas Longhorn beef as a product and for the animals themselves for production on pg. 35. Region A has some new and some returning faces following the board elections for that region at the end of 2018. Turn to pg. 10 to see who your current board members and executive committee members are. Another exciting bit of news for Trails is the return of our membership directory. The last membership directory was published in 2013 and we are happy to be able to bring back this valuable tool for our members. In the September 2019 issue we will publish contact info for all Active and Active Lifetime Members of the TLBAA. Folks often request extra copies to have one in the house, barn and truck. As in the past, all advertisers get their listing bolded. If you just want a bold listing, that option is available for $50. All you have to do is email or call me to get on the list. For deadlines on renewing memberships and updating information, see pg. 49. The World Show has information regarding a new competition and a new building to get your excitement up for the TLBAA World Expo in June. Learn about the fun new items and check out the sponsorship opportunities on pgs. 31 and 32. The Texas Gold Futurity entry information can be found on pg. 33 - be sure to check the classes, there’s one new class added. Just when you think there couldn’t be more to announce, the TLBAA Horn Showcase has a new schedule and a new twist to the sale this year. Turn to pgs. 41-45 to learn more about the event. Keep an eye on Trails Magazine, the website and E-Trails for updates on all that’s going on with our events and the TLBAA. DEADLINE: Blessings, May 2019 Issue:

Chairman’s Message Greetings, Hope y’all have wintered okay and have been seeing a little green showing up in your pastures. For those of you up north, I hope you’re having a little bit of a melt off of the white stuff around you. I want to start off by saying that I have a positive outlook for the TLBAA as we move forward into the future. I also want to say that I appreciate the large member turnout at the Annual Membership and Board meetings. I hope that this a sign of better things to come with larger attendance and participation from all of the association. Thank you to everyone for an orderly and open meeting with discussions of new topics, as well as some that had been a sore spot and had caused concern on a couple of issues. I felt that the discussions and actions taken were in the best interest of the TLBAA and its membership to achieve transparency and move forward; being more educated and giving us the ability to do what is really necessary to protect the integrity of this great breed; to back and support the TLBAA to the fullest as we go into the future, both with support of TLBAA events, sales, futurities and shows and with financial support from registrations, transfers, Trails advertisements and sponsorships. We need to mend our differences, lay them aside and focus on what we do this for, our cattle and the support of our youth, for the youth will be what carries this forward when these generations are gone. I feel that after the Annual Meeting this will be achieved and is the common goal we all share. I would like to congratulate the directors of Division A on their election to the board. Tom Smith- At Large Mark Hubbell-At Large Deb Lesyk- Region 1 Todd Spade- Region 2 Johnny Hicks- Region 3 Matt Durkin- Region 4 Reid Tolar- Region 5 Dora Thompson- Region 6 Things are rolling along with the update of association committees. I have reached out to the board liaisons of the committees to get together the list of committee members, the regions they represent and contact information. I believe by putting this in the Trails and on the TLBAA website, members who have an interest in and want to work with certain committees can contact them directly for more information. Though the committees were set in place by the board, they are made up of members who are willing to give their time and resources to the benefit of the TLBAA. There are two new committees, one working on Board Reduction and the other on the DNA issues. They will be sending out questionnaires or ballots. Please take your time to read over the information they send, respond to it and mail it back in with your comments. It is imperative that you do this as members. Remember it is your voice and your opinion matters. I have reached out to RFD-TV about the past agreement on working with the TLBAA and have been in talks with them on updating and continuing our relationship. They have responded in a positive way and are getting an update on how we move forward and what we need to do to be ready for getting this in place for upcoming events. The TLBAA has started off this year financially sound and with record registrations. The office staff are really working hard and are there to help members with everything. They are at your service to help members with registrations, transfers, Trails ads and DNA questions. Don’t hesitate to call on them for help. I really look forward to working with you all, as your chairman, and thank you for your continuing faith in the TLBAA. I believe we are headed for great things in this organization for our cattle, our members and our youth, our longhorn family. Thank You,

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

Association News

Members, It’s Time To Get Involved! The 2019 Longhorn Weekend TLBAA Board meeting and General Membership meeting resulted in the start of a revamped beef program, stopped the DNA certification requirements of 2019 bulls and is actively investigating a possible reduction in the number of TLBAA Board members. Here’s what you need to know to be involved.

Mandatory DNA Parent Verification for Bulls Born On Or After January 1, 2019 Has Been Stopped Pending Membership Input During the General Membership meeting, a vote was taken on whether or not to continue with mandatory DNA requirements in place. The majority of the membership present voted to stop the current DNA Parent Verification requirement immediately. A motion was then made and passed to form a DNA committee of 6 TLBAA members and two TLBAA board members to come up with and present three options to the TLBAA membership for them to vote on. This will give all members the opportunity to have input. When the proposed options are ready to be presented to the membership, an announcement will be made in Trails Magazine and via E-Trails and e-blasts to alert you to watch your mailbox. Voluntary DNA testing and DNA testing necessary for A.I. Certification is continuing as usual.

Beef Committee Revamps Registered Longhorn Beef Producer Program The Board approved a proposal from TLBAA Beef Committee which updated the current program to make it more complete. The new program is backed by a $10,000 budget for promotional efforts of the committee to market Longhorn beef outside the Longhorn industry and generate new demand, not only for the finished product, but for the cattle as well. The committee is excited to explore new avenues of promotion from advertising to educational displays at trade shows and public events. The provider list will remain on the website, as well as updated and improved educational content on the web as well as in Trails Magazine. For complete requirements to participate in the program, see pg. 31.

TLBAA Board Reduction Committee Is Seeking Your Input TLBAA members watch your mailboxes for the opportunity to give your input on the proposal offered by the Board Reduction Committee. You will receive all the documents explaining the committee’s reasons for wanting to see a reduction in the number of board members, as well as a proposal offering representation based on number of members in a region. The goal is to offer all members an equal amount of representation based on number of members served by a director. The current proposal reduces the number to 15 total. Your input is needed, not only to agree or disagree with the proposal, but to offer your comments as well. The goal is to write a proposed amendment to the by-laws if a change in Board numbers is deemed what the membership wants. The proposed amendment would be voted on at the next TLBAA General Membership meeting and would be confirmed or defeated by the votes of active members present at that meeting. The ballot mailed to all active members needs to be returned no later than May 1, 2019 if you want your voice to be heard. The ballot will not be available in any other form.

NOTICE REGARDING USE OF YOUR E-MAIL IN HORNS There is some confusion as to what your email you provided with your membership information may be used for. The only information you receive from us when you supply a membership e-mail is association business from the accounting, registration and membership departments, as well as notices of information from the Board of Directors or the association with news, proposals or surveys that needs to be seen by as many members as possible. E-Trails (our weekly E-newsletter), e-blasts from the events department or affiliates and paid advertising eblasts only go to those who have signed up for the list via our website or by contacting the office (information below). This requirement is due to rules put in place by the companies that e-mail marketing and news is sent through. Constant unsubscribes or complaints can cause us to be considered spammers and ineligible to send via their service. If you want to make sure you receive all membership notifications, make sure your e-mail is in HORNS. If you want to receive E-Trails, sale announcements, cattle for sale, show news and Horn Showcase updates, then please go to www.tlbaa.org and at the top click sign up for E-Trails or email myra@tlbaa.org giving us permission to add your desired email address to the list. If you would like further explanation, call Myra at 817-625-6241 x 104. 12 | March 2019

It is always fun to see the reactions of Stock Show visitors when they experience a Longhorn show for the first time. (results on pgs. 26-27) The Texas Longhorn breed is always a draw for the more than 53,000 visitors a day to the barns. Thank you, exhibitors, volunteers, sale consignors, and event attendees for your participation, and support during Longhorn Weekend.

Longhorn Weekend

And The Winner Is… The 2018 TLBAA Year-End Awards Banquet was held Friday night, January 18th in Fort Worth, TX. Those in attendance enjoyed a special evening of socializing, a great dinner and a special time of recognition for their fellow Longhorn owners who were presented awards voted on by their peers. There were many new faces in the crowd this year, as well as those who have been attending for many years. It is great to see familiar faces and get a chance to meet new people. Following an invocation by Deb Lesyk, attendees made their way to the buffet line an enjoyed a range of options from main course to tables of meats, cheeses and of course, desserts. After a welcome address from newly elected Chairman of the Board Keith DuBose, the awards presentation started with TLBAA’s Rick Fritsche presenting the 2018 Movers and Shakers Award. Lesyk followed with the announcement of the winners and runners-up of the new Rodger Damrow Colorful Calf Competition (see pgs. ) as well as winners and runners up of the Affiliate Prince and Princess Contest.. The night was wrapped up with the most coveted awards of the year, the TLBAA Special Awards which allows members to nominate and vote on their peers. Each nominator of the winner did the honors of presenting and sharing with those present why they chose to nominate the winner. The winners are shown with the awards descriptions on pg. . All those who couldn’t attend were missed and we hope that you will participate in all of the contests and the nomination and voting process this year. We hope you will all join us at the banquet in January 2020.

AFFILIATE PRINCE & PRINCESS The 2018 Affiliate Prince and Princess Contest drew 112 entries with six affiliates participating. Each affiliate chooses a “contestant” to represent them, then all participating affiliates vote on finalists and the winner. All the bulls and heifers entered by the affiliates appeared in the December 2018 issue of Trails Magazine. All entry fees are invested into the money awards received by the affiliates placing in the top three in Prince and Princess competitions.

This award honors individuals who have worked selflessly for the Longhorn and breeders alike, without recognition.

KEITH & TINA DUBOSE, DUBOSE BAR D RANCH Keith and Tina DuBose are long time supporters of the Texas Long-horn Industry. They should be recognized for their continuous offering of time and knowledge to multiple affiliates.

Longhorn Weekend Wrap-Up

2018 Rodger Damrow Colorful Calf Contest Respectfully titled after longtime Nebraska Texas Longhorn Association President, Rodger Damrow, who was very fond of colorful calves, this inaugural contest drew 47 entries. Bonnie Damrow was honored to judge the entries and her pick for overall winner can be seen on this month’s cover along with Rodger. In the Texas Longhorn industry there are events that look at two out of three aspects of the breed, conformation and horn, but never has there been an event that features the uniqueness of colors so evident in the breed. The top five finalists are showcased first, followed by all the competitor’s for this new title celebrating the distinctly colorful Texas Longhorn. Any Texas Longhorn calf born to two registered Texas Longhorns was eligible (some were too young to be branded and registered in time for the contest) and each entry cost $20. A great way to show off your colorful offspring and have a chance to make the cover of Trails Magazine.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to participate and hope everyone will enjoy the festive displays of color on the following pages.

Halter Breaking 101 There are many different methods of halter breaking a calf, and this by no means is the “only,” or necessarily even the “best” way of halter breaking, it is just the method that has worked the best for me over the years. I typically start the halter breaking process at weaning age (about 6 months), however, if it is a calf at side on a show cow, I start them as soon as possible! The earlier you can start the process, the better - it is much easier to get a 200 lb calf to cooperate than an 800 lb calf!

SAFETY TIP: Ask to help someone halter break a calf beforehand or do it with them. Having someone experienced to ask questions will give you a big advantage. – Joseph Gerlach So let’s get started! First and foremost is getting a halter on the calf…and having it on properly. I know this sounds simple and somewhat common sense, but it’s important to have the halter half way up the bridge of their nose, otherwise you are cutting off the calf’s air and they are not going to want to walk or do anything for you. See Fig. 3 for proper placement for halters. I like to use a nylon control halter when initially starting to halter break. The chain releasing and contracting helps the calf learn when to walk and when to stop based off of pressure. Additionally, when they are shown, they will be in a control halter, so this helps them get used to that. I then let the calf drag an old lead rope for a couple of days to get use to the stopping and starting based off chain pressure.

Fig. 1

SAFETY TIP: I don’t leave them tied up unattended. Calves can get themselves all tangled up easily. – Cindy Dennis Next, I tie the calf to a sturdy pole, fence, or similar structure. I do not tie the calf close, in fact I give them a good amount of slack. This is when I begin a “touch and talk” (John T. Baker) process. Starting at the top of the calf’s left shoulder and slowly expanding to every area and side of the calf (shoulder, back, belly, legs, rear flank, tail head, tail, poll, horns, face, muzzle, etc.), all while talking to the calf so they get used to your voice. The key to this step is to move slow, remain calm, and be persistent; at first, the calf will run from side to side,

SAFETY TIP: Stay out of the kick zone. When touching the animal’s hind area and lower rear legs, stand close and have the back of your legs facing the animal.  It doesn’t hurt as much to get kicked back there. – Cindy Dennis 28 | March 2019

Feature – continued from pg. 28

just stay with them and stay calm and they will eventually calm down. During the halter breaking process, always start with touch and talk time beginning at the top of the left shoulder and try to stay as close as possible with as much of your body as you can, with back to calf, as in Fig. 2. After the calf is calm and you can touch every part of the calf, you can begin the walking process. Begin with slack in the lead rope, at a 90 degree angle from the calf’s head. Move from one side of the calf to the other, pulling just enough to make them take one or two steps; do not apply continuous pressure or stand directly in front of the calf. Continue this process until the calf is taking several steps at a time, then slowly move up on the lead rope and more in front of the calf. By the end of this process your calf should be leading, walking, and stopping on your command.

SAFETY TIP: Do not let anyone who is not strong enough handle a calf that is jumping around and bolting. The calf will get away once and it will just become a game. – Joseph Gerlach Once your calf is leading, you can introduce your calf to a show stick. Rub calf all over with the show stick until they are comfortable with its presence and its touch. Then, you can begin gently applying pressure to feet to move them in the desired direction (pushing foot to move away and pulling from back of foot to move forward). Always, always, always scratch between each touch to the feet, keeping the calf calm and its weight evenly distributed is key! Although using a show stick is helpful, the more effective showman trains their calf to walk into the correct foot placement with as little stick use as possible; calves look best in their natural stance

Fig. 4 and once a calf can walk into place, the chances of the judge getting a quick and good look at your calf heighten greatly. Fig. 4 shows proper foot placement from a profile perspective. Once you have bonded with your calf, are able to lead your calf, and use a show stick effectively, it will just take practice, perseverance, and time in the ring to improve your calf’s attitude and your showmanship as a team. As I said before, there are many methods of halter breaking, this is just the method that has worked best for me. What’s important is finding the method that works best for you and sticking with it. I wish you the best of luck in halter breaking, in the ring, and in life! “Champions are not made in the ring, they are merely recognized there.”

Calves can be be shown at side up to 205 days old or weaning, whichever comes first.

Expand Your Marketing Reach With A Facebook Business Page Facebook is an unavoidable force in marketing. Love it or hate it, thousands of potential buyers for your Longhorn cattle are active on the social media platform. Interestingly enough, the Ranch House Designs 2019 Livestock Marketing Trends survey showed that the overwhelming majority of livestock producers use Facebook more than any other form of social media, almost doubling the popularity of other high ranking platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat. When asked about frequency, Facebook was ranked most frequently used by 77.95% of respondents If you’re thinking “I’ve already got this covered” because you have a personal page, think again. Personal pages and business pages have different features and restraints. For instance, personal pages require people to become mutual “friends” and have access to each other’s page before information is seen. The number of friends one can have is limited to 5,000. A business page, on the other hand, can be followed by an unlimited number of people and you do not have to rely on them accepting a friend request in order for them to visit your page. They can visit the page with no action on their part, but can choose to like and follow the page if they want to see your future posts in their news feed. Another important fact to consider: out of 900 livestock buyers who responded to the Ranch House Designs survey, 82.67% said they looked at a website before making a purchase. What does that have to do with Facebook? Currently, Google is more likely to find your business page than it is your website, especially if you regularly add relevant content. Make sure on your “About” tab you include your website address so the page can serve as a traffic router to your website as well. As with everything, there are always caveats. Make sure that the content on your page is relevant, updated at least weekly and is of interest to people so they will “like” your page and your posts, maintaining higher rankings with both Facebook and Google. Do not wait until you are participating in or hosting a sale and then flood the page with content. Also, do not only post things that link to your website or once again your ranking could fall. Be willing to be vigilant so that when people like a post, comment or ask a question, you engage with them in a timely manner. If they feel like you’re not actively monitoring it they will not be as apt to follow you or inquire about your program. A business page also opens up the world of Facebook ads, a highly cost effective way to reach a targeted audience of people likely to be interested in your Longhorns. Even a $5 campaign can yield results it properly targeted. We will look more into the world of making the most of Facebook ads in a future issue, but for now 34 | March 2019

Keeping It Fresh: Custom Posts

If you enjoy seeing beautiful photos, funny memes or easy to read graphics, then so will other people. Creating content for your page does not have to be complicated. Snap some photos around your property showing your herd. Calf pictures are always cute and they don’t have to be standing pretty. Sometimes an awkward nose in the camera shot or a “scratching an itch” shot is cuteness that can’t be ignored. If you want to promote consignments in upcoming sales, either post a good photo or create an ad specifically for display on social media. That full page ad may be illegible once uploaded and reduced to meet online graphic requirements. If taking a photo and overlaying words on it (meme) or creating a small display ad graphic is not a skill you want to acquire, then most marketing companies can assist. As always, Trails offers graphics assistance beyond magazine ads and is happy to discuss your social media graphic needs as well. just one warning – if you want the best performance for an ad, do not just hit the “Boost Post” button offered by your post. It is the least effective use of your money, as it does not offer the custom targeting options of the ad manager. If you are serious about growing a business, Facebook is an essential tool to add to your marketing arsenal. Keep in mind that no one solution will suffice over time. Print, your website, social media and email marketing are all more effective when they work together in a comprehensive marketing program. We address different aspects of all these methods each month, so stay tuned for more insight on marketing methods.

Longhorn Beef

HNB & Co. Longhorn Beef Market Expands HNB & Co., owned and operated by Josh & Megan Shaw, recently announces that their Longhorn burger will now be offered at Hilliard’s Corner Lounge in Wayland, MI. Hilliards has been in operation with the current owner ship since 1989. It is currently managed by Thomas and Annette Stein and son Kevin Stein. Kevin moved back from Chicago in 2016 to help manage the family restaurant. Hilliard’s serves the community around them by providing locally sourced products to the working class. Manager Kevin Stein said that “I strive to continue to support the local economy as best I can and now, we have the ability to support local business with the restaurants which is visible by our tap list and menu. I think its great what Open Road Brewery, Byron Center Meats and now HNB & Co. are doing, and we love having the opportunity to support and promote locally sourced products.” HNB & Co. is a marketing and distribution entity that is helping Longhorn breeders develop and direct market their beef. Josh grew up in and around Longhorns. His grandparents, Harv and Bev Brandt, started H’N’B Longhorns in 1991. Harv just celebrated his 80th birthday and shows no sign of slowing down! “We have always sold custom beef (1/4s & 1/2s) to family and close friends,” said Josh. “During college I became more and more involved in our operation. At this time the roper market was in the tank and you would be lucky to get $100 for a weanling bull calf. This is when we started growing out our bull calves to sell as beef.” “Facebook has become our biggest avenue for marketing our custom beef. We sell around eight steers a year for custom beef with an average herd size of 30-40 head. We

currently cannot produce enough custom beef to supply our market without changing our business model from being primarily a breeder to a beef producer.” “In our local market you would be lucky to get $0.35/lb. at a local sale barn. We have always turned our cull animals into burger for our family and close friends, and never had a problem moving it. As our herd ages, we have found that we are having more and more animals that need to be moved as burger. In order to supply a larger market, we needed to be able to have USDA certified products. We have always used a USDA certified packaging facility, Byron Center Meats, but used a mobile slaughter truck that would come right to the farm. This was ideal because it was convenient for us, less stressful for the animals and made it easy to keep the skull. “Unfortunately, in order to sell meat by the pound in our area you must also do USDA slaughter. When we set out to find a USDA slaughter facility, we found it very difficult to find anything close that would take a horned animal. Most facilities are not setup to accept horned animals. The closest facility from us is 2 hours one way and if you want to keep the skull you have to drop off cattle one day and drive back the next to pick up the skull. The added cost of fuel and time makes it very difficult and not cost effective.” “Fortunately, Byron Center meats, the packing facility we use, has recently added a USDA mobile slaughter unit. We can now get USDA inspected and certified meat done right off the farm. After the success we experienced, we decided to setup HNB & Co. to help develop a market and outlet for other Longhorn breeders. Our goal is to set up operations to allow other local Longhorn producers to come and use our facilities in order to make it easier for them to get their product to market. We hope to have 2 more restaurants serving Longhorn burger by the end of the first quarter. We are also selling Longhorn meat products retail. Selling and marketing steaks is easy but moving burger by volume can be a bit more difficult. We are using the burger to make brats, beef sticks, summer sausage, and breakfast sausage. We are offering ‘Rodeo Boxes’ where customer get a few select cuts of steaks along with several pounds of burger and specialty meat products.” “I have grown up in the Longhorn industry and have always heard from breeders that there is no market for the bottom end cattle. I have heard that it is too hard, difficult and too much red tape to sell meat off the farm and to restaurants. I found the process to be very easy and straight forward and our local Ag extension office was very willing to help us through the process. With a little research and perseverance, we have been able to get all our certifications and sell several animals by the pound as burger, beef sticks and summer sausage in the span of about 3 months. The best person to sell and market your cattle as breeding stock or as beef is yourself! But if you’re having trouble stay in touch because we will be looking for breeders to help supply our market!”

Breeders

Longhorns, Exotics and A Lot of Love: Nowell’s Hickory Creek Ranch When Mark & Missy Nowell purchased Hickory Creek Ranch in 2014, little did they know what a passion was about to be ignited. Included in that property purchase was four huge Texas Longhorn steers. Being an avid animal lover, Missy set out to make friends with the steers. She began talking to them and bringing them treats until they reached the point they would come up to greet her. When neighbor and friend Bob Loomis inquired about the steers and heard that she had started making the grown steers pets, he could hardly believe it. This is the point where Missy became intrigued with the breed and started learning all she could about Texas Longhorns. The herd grew Christmas of that same year with a gift from Mark of 4 weanling Longhorns – one bull and three heifers. The bull and two of the original heifers are still on the ranch today. Missy read, researched and talked to many breeders, their first go-to people being Bob and Pam Loomis. As she learned more about breeding, she moved from choosing females simply for their beautiful color and kind eyes, to carefully selecting the genetics and individuals to grow her breeding program in the direction she wanted it to go. As time passed other breeders such as Dale Hunt and Wes Clark also shared their experience with the Nowells, along with every breeder, owner or Longhorn enthusiast Missy could find to talk to along the way. She is very thankful for the kind and helpful community that exists in the Longhorn world. Missy also found a friend and helper in Hickory Creek Ranch’s manager, Claudia Davids. Davids, like the steers,

Breeders – continued from pg. 38 were a part of the ranch before the Nowells purchased it. According to Davids, the former owners gave her no notice that they had sold the ranch. Davids did not want to continue working for the previous owners and uncertain of what her next job would be, she asked the Nowells if she could stay temporarily until she found a new position. Davids had a lifetime of experience with animals, mainly horses, and Mark eventually asked her to stay MN Bambi’s Bella, the first calf born at Hickory Creek Ranch and the first bronze winon as their ranch manager. Claudia ner in horn measuring competition. Missy and Claudia show off Bella’s bronzes. and Missy usually work the cows by themselves, except for branding, preg checking or when something crazy happens. Mark is hands on and helps as well, and has some favorites of his own. The first calf born on the ranch arrived on a cold wet January night in 2016. Loomis was called in to help as the cow calved on in the cold mud. Loomis and Davids distracted the momma while Mark grabbed the little wet, freezing heifer and ran through the mud into a stall before momma even realized what was going on. Momma and baby were high and dry, warm and very happy. That first calf was MN Bambi’s Bella who went on to win six bronzes at the TLBAA Horn Showcase. Missy’s favorite bull came to the ranch as a newborn, at the side of the first quality cow she purchased, the now 82” TTT BL Rio Bandito. “Bubba” (MN Cowboy Tuff Bandito), a Cowboy Tuff Chex son, is literally Missy’s baby. Davids shared a story illustrating that special bond Missy shares with the bull. “In 2017, Bubba travelled to his first futurity. When they went to unload him from the Baby watch is serious business! trailer, the back crew wanted to take over the process. Bubba stood in the trailer just looking at them and refused to move. Before the handlers could go into the trailer and try harder, Missy stepped up, got in front of the trailer, calls him by name and he walks on and follows her all the way to the pen. Can you imagine the faces?” Missy has big plans for her program, starting with finding the best possible cows for Bubba that will produce offspring with awesome horn, body and mind. A look at the ranch might have you wondering what other programs the Nowells may be starting. Missy is fascinated with anything that is different from the “norm” and has quite a collection of other animals including a Clydesdale, a zebra, seven alpacas, two camels, 2 Scottish Highlands and a giraffe. Davids says the exotics are just a hobby with no breeding or business ventures planned (so far). The Longhorns are Missy’s passion and great love and she has a hard time parting with any of them. “The calmness and grace of these majestic animals is what we both love about the breed.” What started as four steers and a curious animal lover has now grown into 110 Longhorns and a desire in Missy to make a mark in the Longhorn world with her own breeding program. A zebra, camels and other exotics share Hickory Creek Ranch with the Longhorns.

TLBAA Horn Showcase

Exciting Changes For 2019 TLBAA Horn Showcase! New Friday and Saturday Format In an effort to help accommodate our members and their busy schedules, the Horn Showcase event activities for 2019 will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 4 and 5, in Lawton, Oklahoma. In the past, the event had activities Thursday through Saturday. Cattle will check in on Thursday, October 3, eliminating the need for those participating to have that extra day off work. Friday will be devoted to the measuring classes and the popular Bull Alley that evening. Measuring begins promptly at 7:00 am and the excitement builds as the older animals are put under the tape as the day progresses. Winners of the classes will be announced during the day with those owners present given the opportunity to have award photos taken.

After the Futurity, everyone gets a chance to relax and unwind at the Horn Showcase banquet. This year, it will be back on-site at the Comanche County Fairgrounds with a steak dinner cooked to perfection. During the banquet, Futurity winners will be announced and honored. Additionally, those animals earning a Superior Award will be revealed. The Superior Award recognizes those animals that compete in both a measurement class and a Futurity class successfully.

After the banquet, move back to the arena to bid on the best Bred and Owned consignments in the Horn Showcase sale. The committee is working diligently to gather the best animals available in this unique sale. All animals will have competed in the measurement classes.

Later that evening, everyone is invited to enjoy a reception prior Bull Alley. As highlighted in the February issue of Trails, Bull Alley is an event not to be missed. Utilizing a Friday evening to showcase the industry’s best bulls should allow more members the opportunity to see the “best of the best” while taking advantage of the special pricing offered in semen sales. On Saturday, the day begins with the popular Horn Showcase Futurity. A five panel team of judges evaluates the whole animal with scores between 60 and 80 given to each animal by each judge. The high and low scores are dropped with the remaining three scores totaled. Depending on the size of the classes, first place payouts are often over $1,000.

Nutrition

Pre and Post-Calving Nutrition Tips for Cows and Heifers Nutritional needs of cows vary considerably, depending on age (young and still growing, mature, or old with poor teeth), size, whether or not the cow is lactating and/or pregnant, and whether the weather is warm or cold. Cattle can do well on many types of forage and feeds as long is it contains sufficient nutrients to meet their needs and is provided in adequate amounts. Several basic groups of nutrients are important—energy (sugars and starches found in grains, and the complex carbohydrates of cellulose and other fibers that are broken down and digested by fermentation in the rumen), proteins, vitamins, minerals (which include calcium and phosphorus, along with salt, and the trace minerals that are crucial for a healthy immune system, reproduction, etc.) and water. PRE-CALVING REQUIREMENTS Make sure pregnant cattle have an adequate and well balanced diet with no vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Proper levels of trace minerals are crucial for a healthy immune system, fetal development, and optimal reproduction capabilities. Different regions vary greatly in soil minerals; feeds in some areas may be deficient in certain elements. It’s wise to take soil and feed samples to know how best to supplement cattle when planning your mineral program. The nutrient requirements for protein and energy for pregnant cows will vary, depending on whether the cow is young and still growing or nursing a calf. Even though the nutrient demands for the fetus itself do not increase much until the final trimester of gestation when the fetus is growing fastest, the cow’s demands in early pregnancy will still be great if she is feeding her present calf. Heifers pregnant with their first calves need good feed. The demands of pregnancy are not great, but the heifer must be able to reach adequate size and maturity before calving. Cattle nutritionists generally recommend feeding heifers enough protein and energy between weaning and calving that they will reach at least 65 percent of their mature weight by breeding time, and 80 to 85 percent of their projected mature size and weight by the time they calve as 2 year olds. Spring-calving pregnant cows must be in good flesh through winter. Cows that are thin at calving take longer to start cycling again. Monitor body condition closely through winter to make sure your feeding program is on target; the easiest time to put flesh back on a cow if she’s pulled down after summer lactation is in the fall after weaning her calf—before weather gets cold. A pregnant dry cow should be able to gain weight on pasture alone, with just a protein supplement if the grass is overly mature with low protein content. If a cow is thin at calving, it is very hard to pick up her weight after she starts lactating. She puts the extra energy into milk instead of body weight. A fat cow can coast through winter and even lose a little weight with46 | March 2019

IMPORTANCE OF TRACE MINERALS One of the most important aspects of nutrition is to make sure trace mineral levels are adequate, since many regions are short on crucial minerals like copper, zinc and selenium. It pays to check hay for mineral levels every few years, even if it’s hay from your own place. Mineral levels may be low, or may be rendered unavailable to cattle if tied up by other minerals. Three things that can tie up trace minerals are iron, sulfur and molybdenum. Excessive amounts of these will interfere with the body’s absorption of trace minerals. This can cause weight loss, delay in puberty for heifers, and create health issues. Adequate levels of trace minerals in the diet of a beef cow are especially important in the 60 days before calving, and also after calving—through breeding. “Nearly 70 percent of the U.S. is copper deficient, and about 50 percent is zinc deficient,” says Dr. Ron Skinner (veterinarian and seedstock producer at Hall, Montana). Certain geographic areas are also very selenium deficient. You need to know what your soils and feeds contain, so you can make adjustments if needed. “I don’t think we should go overboard on trace minerals, but there are times in the cow’s year that we really need them, such as in late gestation to help build a healthy immune system in the fetus, and after calving when the cow is preparing to rebreed,” he says. out detrimental effects, whereas a thin cow needs to gain weight through winter if you expect her to breed back. You don’t want cows to be losing weight just before or after calving. Even if 2 cows have the same body condition at calving, if one is losing weight and the other is gaining, the cow gaining weight is better programmed for fertility than the cow losing weight. Studies have shown that each 10 percent of weight lost before calving can delay the first heat cycle by about 19 days. So you want your cows in good flesh at calving. In some instances, however, too much nutrition can be as detrimental as too little. A cow or heifer that is too

Heather Smith Thomas fat may also have fertility problems, or difficulty calving because she has too much fat in the pelvic area. Fat takes up some of the space and makes it harder for the calf to come through easily, and a fat cow or heifer will also tire more readily during labor—requiring assistance to deliver the calf in timely fashion. More commonly, however, young cows are thin at calving rather than too fat. For this reason, feed the 2 and 3 year olds different from the way you feed the main herd. “Pay close attention to body condition, especially in young cows,” says Shannon Williams, Lemhi County Extension Agent (Idaho). They should be separated from the herd and fed differently, preferably before they’ve lost too much weight. “If an older cow is losing weight, she should also be pulled out of the herd and fed separately. Some producers put the old, thin cows with the young cows,” she says. Protein requirements for pregnant cows increases during later stages of gestation, and is higher for young cows. If you keep young cows separate, they can be supplemented with protein, without having to supplement the whole herd. In years past some producers lost calves to “weak calf syndrome” and University of Idaho studies showed that the primary cause was shortage of protein in the diets of the cows, especially young cows. Calves born from protein-deficient dams were more likely to suffer cold stress and/or succumb to calfhood illnesses.

The mature cows can often be roughed through winter and early spring (as they approach calving) much easier than younger cows, because they are not trying to grow. Even though some of the nutrient requirements will be similar for any pregnant cows, their age and whether they are still growing or not will make for some differences.

POST-CALVING REQUIREMENTS If a cow is lactating, she needs a much higher level of protein and energy than when she is pregnant. According to Shannon Williams, the thing producers really need to remember is that during the 60 days following calving, they are asking the cow to produce milk, repair

Nutrition her uterus and breed back again. “This requires an extreme amount of energy and nutrients,” she says. If a cow is in poor body condition when she calves, she doesn’t have a very good chance to prepare for rebreeding while she’s producing milk for her new calf. She may continue to lose weight, even if you increase her nutrient levels, and fail to cycle on time. This is a crucial phase in her production cycle, and if she is a young cow (still growing), her needs for energy and protein will be even greater than that of an older cow. “The important things are to feed cattle appropriately for their age and stage of gestation, and make sure they

have good feed during not only the last trimester but also the first 60 days after they calve. Their demands increase tremendously at that time.” Even if the cows came through pregnancy in good body condition, you don’t want them to lose ground after calving. “They can always rob a little from their backfat if they were in good flesh at calving, but you may pay for this later if you don’t catch the weight loss soon enough,” says Williams. Don’t just turn them out to grass and stop feeding them if the grass isn’t quite ready yet. They may lose too much weight and not breed back quickly.

REPRODUCTION Adequate levels of various nutrients are especially important for reproduction, since the body always takes care of other needs first. Reproduction is a luxury that won’t take place unless the body’s maintenance needs are met. A thin cow or heifer will not settle as readily as an individual in good flesh; if she is too thin she won’t be cycling. Ideal body condition score for best fertility is between 5 and 7 on a scale of 9. Thin cows and obese cows can both have fertility problems. Cows consuming really high levels of protein will also have problems, according to Ron Skinner, DVM. Beef cows do not need second and third cutting alfalfa hay, for instance, unless in small amounts, used as a supplement to augment low-protein pastures or poor quality hay. “I do a lot of AI and embryo transplants and it’s been interesting to watch what happens with the number of eggs you get, quality of the eggs, and fertilization of eggs, when cows are on different rations. This also plays a role in conception rates in AI programs,” he says. Skinner consults with ranchers on nutrition and mineral programs, and also helps resolve breeding issues.

48 | March 2019

Some ask for help when they have low conception rates, such as 50 percent with embryos or only 60 percent with AI. “When we make proper changes in the rations, these rates improve,” he says. “When I started doing embryo work in my own herd 30-some years ago, I thought I could help those cows by putting them on high quality alfalfa hay. I learned several things—first that they eat too much of it because they like it. One of the problems with feeding a high protein diet is that it builds up a high urea level in the uterine fluids, blood stream, and changes the pH, and this really hurts conception rates,” says Skinner. He learned to adjust protein level in diet to a lower, optimum level. “Now if we flush 6 cows we’ll get 100 good eggs or more. The national average is 7 eggs per cow on a flush. Our average is around 15 to 18 eggs per cow. Our AI conception rate is in the low 80’s and we get well over 70 percent conception rate on embryos. We were not able to do that until we changed nutrition management on cows in the period we’re giving shots, etc, 3 weeks before the flush,” he says.

Nutrion/Forage

Determining How Much Forage a Beef Cow Consumes Each Day A frequent question from producers is “how much will my cows eat on a daily basis”? Producers want to meet the cows’ nutrient requirement, but sure don’t want to over-feed expensive forages. With the dry conditions this past summer and harvested forages at a premium, closely estimating the amount of feed needed to get through the winter and early spring will be important to contain cost.

If the same group of 1,200 pound cows are fed a ration where part of the ration called for corn silage to be fed at 10 pounds per head per day on a dry matter basis and the corn silage is 35% dry matter and 65% moisture, the pounds of corn silage in the diet would be 28.5 (10 pounds/.35) pounds per head per day on an as-fed basis. Remember that of the 28.5 pounds of silage, 18.5 pounds is water and 10 pounds is silage.

What Determines Daily Forage Intake There are a number of different factors that determine the daily intake of a cow. The primary factors are cow weight, forage quality, and stage of production (gestating or lactating). When feeding the same forage, cows that weigh 1,300 pounds will consume more on a daily basis compared to lighter weight cows that weigh 1,100 pounds. In addition, cows that are lactating will consume more feed than cows that are not lactating.

The Difference Between Intake on a Dry Matter and As Is Basis This can be a challenging concept to explain – what the difference between dry matter and as-fed – especially when nutriments for beef cows are on a dry matter basis. Intake on a dry matter basis means that the forage doesn’t include moisture. However, we know that the forages contain moisture and not all forages contain the same amount of moisture. So if forage intake can be determined on a dry matter basis, it can easily be converted to an “as is” or “as-fed” basis. As an example, if it were determined the daily dry matter intake of a group of 1,200 pound cow eating an average quality hay is 24 pounds per head and the hay that they are consuming is 88% dry matter, these cows would consume about 27 (24 pounds/.88) pounds per head per day on an as-fed basis.

Forage quality impacts dry matter intake of cows. As the forage quality increases, indicated as an increase in TDN content of the forage, the amount of the forage that the cow can consume also increases. As forage quality increases, there is more leaf as compared to stem. When quality is low, there is more stem, therefore more cell wall contents that are not as easily digested —

Whether you are new to cattle or have owned them for years, your local county extension agent is a wealth of information on everything from analyzing forage to conservation and all aspects of livestock husbandry. 50 | March 2019

University Nebraska-Lincoln the forage does not pass through the rumen very fast. In addition, as forages increase in maturity, there is an increase in lignin content. Lignin is not digested by the rumen microbes. A good example of how forage quality impacts the amount a cow can consume daily is wheat straw. Wheat straw is low in protein and energy, 4.0% crude protein and 40%TDN. When cows have full access to wheat straw, they don’t quit eating wheat straw because they don’t like it, they quit eating it because they can’t stuff anymore into their rumen. Straw has such a low digestibility that it takes extra time in the rumen for it to be digested and passed through the rumen before more can be consumed. Daily intake on a dry matter basis may be 1.6% to 1.8% of her body weight. In comparison, corn silage will typically be about 70% TDN and lactating beef cows can easily consume 2.5% to 2.7% of their body weight on a dry matter basis of this feed. There are some “thumb rules” to help estimate daily feed intake of cows on a dry matter basis consuming forages of differing quality when they are either gestating or lactating. • When forage quality is low (52% TDN or less) and cows are not lactating, they will consume 1.8% and lactating cows about 2.0% of their weight on a dry matter basis. • If the forage quality is average (TDN content between 52% and 59%), non-lactating cows will consume about 2.0% to 2.1.% and lactating cows about 2.3% of their body weight daily on a dry matter basis of this forage. As an example, if the forage were 55% TDN and lactating cows on the average weigh 1,200 pounds, then it could be estimated that they would eat 28 (1200 pounds x 0.023) pounds of hay daily on a dry matter basis. If the hay were 88% dry matter, on an “as-fed” basis, cows would eat about 32 (28 pounds/.88) pounds daily. If there were 200 head of cows in the herd, it would take

about 3.2 ton of this hay per day [(200 head x 32 lb/hd/ da) /2000lb] not accounting for any waste. Estimating daily feed intake of your cow herd is the first step in determining the amount of forage that is needed to be on-hand for a harvested forage feeding program. When forage availability is tight like it is during drought, being able to determine how much inventory needed will help enhance the profit potential of the cow/calf enterprise.

Hey TLBAA! Guess what? It’s spring time! I am so ready for the flowers to bloom and the grass to start growing. Spring time does not only mean greener grass and colorful flowers but it also means it’s calving season for many of us who have show cattle! The show season usually ends at World Show for us so we take our cows to be bred in July. That means most of us have numerous Spring babies. I should be having two calves this spring and I cannot wait.  Since it’s March, we have plenty of shows coming up to fill up your calendar. Here in Texas, we have the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo which is one of my absolute favorite shows. This will be held on March 3rd-5th. Next, in Sulphur Springs we will have the NTLBA Spring Show on March 8th-10th. Following the NTLBA show, we have the Austin Stock Show and Rodeo on March 15th and 16th. After that we have the Stillwater Shootout in Oklahoma on March 22nd-24th and the YMLB Show in Beaumont on March 21st-23rd.    I hope to see you all at these shows, Exhibitors! March is going to be a fun month. I wish you all the best of luck and safe travels!

Gabby Curtis

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!

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


Raising Texas Longhorns in the upper Midwest… it’s catching on!! There have been a few dedicated breeders who have been working on marketing Texas Longhorns in our GORDON HOWIE region for years. Some have achieved PRESIDENT GKHOWIE@YAHOO.COM some success, but when I tell people I raise Registered Texas Longhorns, I still get some pretty strange looks. All of that to say, it is encouraging to see Longhorn enthusiasts working together to expand awareness and market in our part of the country. When people SEE quality longhorn cattle on the hoof or on their dinner plate, minds are changed and markets are opened. The Great Plains Texas Longhorn Association is determined to help improve things for Longhorn producers. The GPTLA has been fortunate to enroll new members, but our objective is to include EVERY breeder in this tri-state area and those beyond who want to join our effort! If you are reading this, and have not yet joined the GPTLA, we hope you will team up with us and become a member. When we work together, it lifts EVERYONE’S boat. Annual dues are only $25.00 for active membership, $5.00 for youth, $15.00 for associate and $250.00 for lifetime. Please send a check for your membership, along with your name, address, phone and email address to Great Plains Texas Longhorn Association, 15372 Antelope Creek Rd, Rapid City, SD, 57703. We want you to be part of the GPTLA! We would also welcome your participation in our three day Longhorn event at the Central States Fair (Rapid City, SD) in August of this year. The GPTLA is sponsoring a Regional Horn Measurement competition on Fri. August 16th and the 4th Annual World Qualifying Show on Sun. August 18th. On Sat. Aug 17th, the Central States Fair will feature the Top Hand Invitational Longhorn Sale. This three day event is a partnership effort with the GPTLA and others, which will be another big step forward for Longhorn producers in our area. Keep your eyes on this new TLBAA Affiliate organization. The GPTLA is determined to take new ground!!!
