EDITOR’S NOTES FORWARD, HO!

Change doesn’t bother me when it has forward movement. I hope that is what you see in Trails each month. While there are many topics that change little over the years pertaining to subjects such as cattle health, nutrition and pasture, my goal is to present even those topics with a fresh angle or a new voice discussing them. Even if you think you are already familiar with the subject, read them and you may discover a new gem of information or have a new idea strike you. We hope to continue this forward charge at a quicker pace in coming months. Stay tuned! In this issue we celebrate the females in your herd. In recent years bulls have dominated discussions and filled ad pages. But with the advent in the past couple of decades of reproductive technologies such as embryo transfer and in vitro fertilization, those females with outstanding characteristics can multiply quicker and affect a much greater number of animals in future generations. You can see a few females impacting the industry on this month’s cover and learn about more starting on pg. 10. We turned to Della Serna with El Coyote Ranch for our marketing feature this month. Della has been creating the El Coyote Ranch ads you see in Trails each month, and was happy to talk about the importance of promoting your foundation females. Turn to pg. 20 to see how introducing the public to your foundation females adds value to the bulls and heifers you’re trying to market. We have included information on pg. 8 to help guide people through submitting requests in our current system for parent verification and DNA markers. The new requirements for bulls only born January 1, 2018 and after will be accompanied with new procedures and lower cost which will roll out in the next few weeks. The details of the change and all pertinent forms and instructions are available on www.tlbaa.org by clicking the forms tab. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the exciting new location for World Show this year! It will be quite a change, but we believe one that will be a good experience for those showing as well as attendees. Join us in Belton, TX, June 27 - July 1. Become a sponsor and enjoy some great benefits while promoting your ranch or business! See pg. 19 for details. The Horn Showcase will return to Lawton, OK this year with new options for winners. The entry form includes a spot for you to choose the traditional bronze or opt for a Premium Custom Belt Buckle. Don’t forget to mark your choice when sending those entries in! Turn to pgs. 33-37 for information, consignment and entry forms.

FEMALE IMPACT

ON THE

LONGHORN INDUSTRY In a bull driven beef cattle industry, Texas Longhorn breeders have stood apart by taking advantage of embryo transfer to multiply the genetics of the females they value. The visual reference included here is a small sample of the females greatly impacting today’s Texas Longhorn industry.

Genetic improvement is the use of genetically superior animals as parents of the next generation. The definition of genetic superiority will be a function of many variables. Most measures of genetic superiority will be based on potential profitability of the genotype. Genetic improvement should be continuous, and the most important variable that will limit continuous improvement is inbreeding. A sustainable genetic improvement program must manage inbreeding/ linebreeding. Inbreeding/ linebreeding have their pros and cons within an operation. One must weigh the options is the risk worth the potential reward? A genetic improvement program must be designed in conjunction with culling decisions that influence the current herd and the existing herd management, and with consideration of markets being supplied.

When a rancher feels he/she has a genetically superior female that exemplifies breed standards and is highly desirable in the marketplace, they may consider embryo transfer (ET). ET refers to the process of assisted reproduction where embryos  are placed into the uterus of a female with the intention of establishing a pregnancy.  The process can involve a number of different steps and technologies, but generally requires two main components: generating and then obtaining (flushing) the embryos from the donor female and transferring each embryo into a different female (surrogate). ET is used to exploit the genetics of the female in the same way that frozen semen is used to exploit the genetics of the male. Advances in embryo technology are extremely useful since females typically produce one calf per year. Comparatively, with embryo transfer, 9-12 calves can be produced per year per flush. It is recommended to be very cognizant of how your cow is

responding after each procedure. Most embryologists will recommend that a female is flushed up to three times and then bred back for a natural calf to reset her natural hormones. There are two procedures presently available for production of embryos from donor females: 1) superovulation, followed by artificial insemination and then flushing the uterus to gather embryos; and 2) in vitro fertilization (IVF) consists of the recovery of oocytes from the ovaries that mature into eggs in about 24 hours, then are fertilized outside the body until they are ready for implantation in foster females. In most beef industries they are driven by the male influence. The sires are making the impact in their operation, so it is quite obvious that is where you make your largest financial investment. In the Longhorn industry we are females driven. Our consignment sales are female based almost 100% of the time.

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS

Breeding When we review the past, there are females in the Texas Longhorn world that have made an enormous impact with combined natural and ET production. These super females have not only impacted the ranch that they were owned by, but the entire breed as whole. A prime example of the impact of a single female is Doherty 698. She was born on March 15, 1977. Her first calf was born in 1979. She had one calf a year until 1982, then she produced 13 calves in that year. By the end of her career, she had produced 59 offspring. Take into consideration that most females will produce a single calf a year for their whole life. If she produces 15 calves total and half are bulls that don’t develop, her impact goes down to 6 or 7 offspring to impact your herd or the breed. When Doherty 698’s 59 offspring are present over a 40 year window, we are currently at 18,547 total descendants currently in H.O.R.N.S.

“Dickinson Cattle Co leased Doherty 698 from Frank Doherty for embryo production. During the time we had her leased, she produced 44 embryo calves. She was one of our favorite donor cows of the 86 great females being flushed. We mated her with 11 different sires and the resulting offspring were typically the best offspring those bulls ever sired. Doherty was a huge 1370 lb cow, pretty colored, with 44.5” horn tip-to-tip at age 4. Those were great statistics at that time.” – Darol Dickinson

Another extreme producer in our industry is Tari Graves FM49. She was calved in March 28, 1992. In her career she produced 44 offspring. In the last 26 years since her birth, Tari Graves has had influence on 2,188 Texas Longhorns. This number will continue to multiply in coming years. Reviewing the past gives us understanding on the direction of our future. Learn from it and prepare for the future. It is obvious the huge influences of the past are going to conTari Graves is one of the major cows at the foundation of our herd because she is one of the most consistent and prolific producers giving her a ton of longevity. She had a ton of femininity, length and depth of body, most evident when she was in her prime. To top it off she had a spectacular set of twisty horns. Even at an advanced age she was one of our top donors whose genetics matched with just about anything we paired her with. She passes on these great qualities to all her offspring, especially her daughters. We’ve been fortunate have some superior daughters and granddaughters, such as Tari’s Transition, Eternally Tari, ECR Houston Tari, and ECR Alamo Rose to name a few, that do a fantastic job of carrying on her legacy. – El Coyote Ranch

tinue to influence our future. Now let us take a few moments to review females that are making in impact in the industry today. The females that we have showcased in this article have good size, color, conformation, and the ability to reproduce offspring as good as or superior to them. They are clean, smooth, deep and uniform, as well as having an abundance of horn. They have crossed well with multiple sires and their offspring are performing as consistently as their dams in order to make the breed strong, more uniform and consistent. On some of these females, most of their offspring that make it into production are daughters. The impact they will have on the industry multiplies greatly over time. In most breeding operations the largest impact is made by a herd sire. As you can see from the females shown, an elite cow can make just as large of an impact when utilizing embryo transfer or IVF, your donor cow takes the place of the herd sire influence in a herd.

This article was not able to touch on every very influential female in the industry today. The females shown are meant to give you food for thought. Take steps on stacking pedigrees with the most influential females, checking the performance/track record and what genetics the females you are acquiring work the best with genetically. Continually strive to better your program and you too could end up being the breeder of the next breed changer. Genetics set the potential for upper or lower production limits that animals can achieve. This can impact on the goals for any type of Longhorn enterprise, including your market options. Progressive cattlemen that drive for performance, profit, and look forward to the future generations that will impact their herd and the breed. Using the best cattle genetics allows you to improve the animals’ contribution and your bottom line.

Breeding

By Myra Basham

Things To Consider When Culling Females The longevity and uniqueness of the Texas Longhorn, coupled with the affection many breeders hold for the animals can make culling time even more difficult than it is for other cattle breeds. The fact remains, however, that anyone who breeds cattle must deal with letting some go at some point in their journey. Whether culling due to lack of available pasture or a desire to improve the genetic pool, there are criteria you can consider to assist in making those tough decisions at the very least rational ones. First, establish your baseline of what a cow must do to “earn” her spot in your pasture and justify a feed bill. Such requirements may include: • Calves regularly • Breeds back easily • Produces enough milk • Structural soundness • Offspring as good or better than her • Good Temperament • Fits my program goals It would be safe to say that any female that gets a strong yes in all your basic requirements should move to the “keep” list. Now take a look at the females that fell short in a category, and weigh positives against shortcomings. This is where emotions need to be set aside and a critical look taken at the details. For many in the cattle industry, not producing a live calf or not raising one successfully to weaning is an immediate cull. However, in the Longhorn industry, giving the female another chance is more common. If the need to cull is urgent and she falls short in any of the other categories she may need to move to the cull list. A cow that is difficult to breed back would need to excel in all other categories to not risk being put on the cull list. Any cow can have a season where she may not re-breed as quickly, but when it is a constant issue she may need to go. Take a broader look at milk production. Is the structure of her udder good? Are the teats well formed, making it easy for a newborn calf to feed? While the idea of bottle babies seems cute at times, it is not the situation desired. Milking ability is a heritable trait, and you don’t want to risk propagating low milk yield within your herd. However, if you’ve successfully bred her with bulls with milk producing dams and gotten exceptional offspring then those shortcomings could be overcome. Structural soundness has many factors and some are more critical than others. The ability to walk and withstand breeding activity without pain or impediment should be a priority. If the structural issue has shown up in any offspring, then this may be a case to cull. In the case of injury causing the problem, if the genetics and other characteristics are strong and the cow can be kept comfortable with special care then she may be worth retaining if you have the space. 18 | May 2018

Does Cull Always Mean Defective? While the term cull can apply to removing undesirable or unproductive animals from a herd, it may simply mean pulling from your herd to reduce its size. This is one reason why you see top quality animals selling at auction or private treaty. Many keep the genetics in their herd through offspring and wish to create income while reducing the size of their herd. Often it is simple economics of number cattle versus acreage available. In addition, when trying to improve the genetics in a small herd, animals that don’t meet your goals must be sold to make room for new purchases who will take you in the direction you choose. They may not be right for you, but a great asset for another type of program. Breeders who are truly trying to rid their herd of animals with issues should take those to a local livestock market or processor and not sell them back into the registered Texas Longhorn marketplace. Temperament is heritable. There is no reason to keep a cow that poses a high risk to the safety of others. Calm animals are not only safer, they also produce better quality beef. If she makes you wear your running shoes in the pasture, she needs to be considered for the cull list. The last two basics go hand in hand. A cow that is not producing as good or better than herself cannot help you reach program goals that include herd improvement. The only reason to keep such a female off the cull list would be as a recip cow (one that carries an embryo pregnancy) if she is structurally sound, a good milker and a great mother. While female Longhorns can be productive up into their late teens and some into their early 20’s, age should be considered, especially when extreme circumstances such as drought or economic pressures are driving the need to reduce numbers. If you are limited in what you can keep, then younger proven producers with immediate income potential should stay. Older cattle that are harder to keep fit, along with very young cattle that will need to be fed for a couple of years before they are income producers should be the first considered for potential culls. In the end, it may be easier for those who find this process stressful to call in a knowledgeable breeder to look at their herd and maybe point out things that one may be overlooking in their own cattle. With a goal of herd improvement, culling is a necessary tool.

Marketing

By Della Serna

Show Off The Foundation of Your Program Author Sarah J. Hale wrote “No influence is so powerful as to that of a mother.” This statement especially rings true in the cattle industry. While sire selection will play a major role in production, the heart is in the females. Without productive females we would not have super future herd sires or dynamic heifer calves that become an income source for our business. When marketing your females, it’s important to remember that each of our programs has to start somewhere, and a solid foundation and functionality are the keys to success in not only production but marketing as well.

Developing a core foundation provides a solid structure to build your program. By developing a herd of quality cattle in both phenotype and genotype, you have the opportunity to maneuver your program in any direction you choose. Much of the market value of our cattle is in recognition of genetics as well as performance, whether through horn growth or in the show or futurity ring. Taking the time to develop the females at your core assists in improving the market value of your herd as a whole. There is an abundance of options when selecting cows for your herd, and this is particularly true of the Longhorn breed. Their genetics, structure, maternal ability, etc. is what gets a healthy calf to weaning. A cow with strong genetics that is structurally sound and functionally productive will be able to provide a world of opportunities for producers. You can choose outcross breeding options that will enhance the value of the offspring while still maintaining the strong value at the core. Proven strength at the foundation provides the structure to market young cattle. If the basis is established then it is likely that these traits will be passed on to offspring allowing producers to capitalize on these traits when selling at auction or private treaty. 20 | May 2018

With the cattle established, you should develop a plan on how you would like to personify them in the marketplace. Remembering that first impressions are lasting, therefore high-quality pictures and worthy content go a long way in showing your herd at its best. It is worth taking a well rounded advertising approach rather than focusing on one sole area (i.e. only bulls, only cows) because this allows potential customers the opportunity to get to know your herd. Today we are fortunate to have so many avenues, such as publications, websites, and even social media to name a few, that allow us to spread the word about our programs. Each of these avenues has their own set of advantages. With publications you have an established plane that ties your herd to the breed allowing producers and buyers alike the opportunity to make connections between your herd and other herds. Websites allow you to show viewers a little bit of what you are about and what you have available. With the addition of social media, you have a relatively inexpensive way to reach potential customers you might not have been exposed to in other forms of advertisement. By establishing your program in these media areas you can showcase the productivity. You can highlight your cows in a way that shows how well they raise their calves to milestone measurements and breeding decisions. This gives potential buyers an inside look at your herd and a step up with marketing offspring to the public. Simply advertising when you have cattle consigned to an auction, while essential, can be more beneficial to your bottom line when buyers know more of the history behind what they are buying. Buyers might be more inclined to buy one cow over another because they know how well her dam produces and what traits she passes to her offspring. There are so many ways you can highlight your cattle, and we are fortunate in the Longhorn breed to have many attributes to emphasize when marketing them. Setting up a plan and taking advantage of strategic marketing allows you to successfully sell in the marketplace. It’s important to remember that this is not possible without establishing a core foundation, most likely started with a select set of feature females to provide the groundwork to move your herd to the next level. Keep in mind that the best and most successful marketing plans begin with pride and belief in what your herd has to offer.

Longhorn Beef

By Myra Basham

Before You Process That Beef... Check Your Freezer Space There is no worse feeling than bringing home your first processed Longhorn and realizing that there is no way it will fit in the freezer space you have available. If you sell your beef to others they, just as you, need to have an idea of how much space is required before committing to purchasing a large amount of meat. So how much freezer space is enough? A quick search of the subject yields a confusing array of numbers that seem to vary significantly. Part of the reason for the variety of answers is the number of pounds in a quarter, half, side or whole beef can vary based on the type of cuts and the shapes of the packages. If the whole animals is ground then more of it will fit in less space than one with part of the cuts as roasts or other irregularly shaped packages. Taking package shape into consideration, the average freezer on top of your refrigerator will hold 30-40 lbs. of meat (Roughly 1/8th of a beef). When you start to look at storage for larger amounts, take into consideration that cold air sinks. That is why chest freezers are so popular, despite the fact that you have to layer product inside and without a chart it could be hard to locate the cuts you want without a bit of digging. However, that effort may be worth it when you

22 | May 2018

consider temperature changes can lead to freezer burn. When you open a chest freezer the cold air stays settled around the food. On an upright freezer temperature can fluctuate as you search for what you need. Once you start storing quarters or more it is time to invest in extra freezer space. A quarter may fit into the freezer of a large side-by-side, but space for anything else would be limited. A small cube freezer would work better. A half beef requires a larger freezer - closer to 7.5 cubic feet, while a whole beef may require 14 cubic feet or more. It is always better to over estimate space needed. One handy trick to help a larger freezer operate more efficiently when it isn’t full is to put jugs of water in it to freeze. Jugs can be added and removed as other items come and go. Having the freezer fuller also helps when there are brief interruptions of power, and, if you happen to not have water available, simply grab a jug and let it thaw. It would be wise to talk to a Longhorn breeder that has processed and stored meat for some advice on freezer space required before taking the plunge into storing quantities of frozen beef, either for personal use or for sale.

Pasture Management

Tools To Help Prevent Overstocking The TLBAA office fields calls on a regular basis with the question - how many Longhorns can I put on Xamount of acres? Unfortunately, the number or variables based on time of year, quality of forage, type of forage, age of cattle - the list goes on - all can affect the number of acres required per Longhorn. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) offers formulas that can (1) tell you the maximum number of animals you can graze on your pasture or (2) tell you the minimum amount of land you need for a certain number of animals. This information is an important management tool for both continuous and rotational grazing. To get started, first you need to know: – Grazing days (use 365 if grazing all year) – The average weight of one of your Longhorns – Total number of acres available for grazing – Average pasture yield per acre (If you don’t have figures, your local NRCS office can supply average yield estimates for you) Daily utilization rate for livestock = .04, or 4%. This is a set number because livestock require 4% of their weight in forage each day (2.5 - 3% intake, .5% trampling loss and .5 - 1% buffer)

TOTAL NUMBER OF ANIMALS = (total acreage) x (average yield per acre) (.04) x (average animal weight) x (grazing days) TOTAL ANIMALS ACRES OF PASTURE NEEDED = (animals) x (average animal weight) x (.04) x grazing days) (average yield per acre) NUMBER OF ACRES The computations can be carried further to take into account the fluctuation in forage growth at different parts of the year. Figuring the numbers month by moth can let you foresee when you will have enough surplus to cut some for hay to cover months when you fall short of having enough available forage for grazing. All of these numbers are estimates and should be coupled with visual inspection of your herd and your pasture and making adjustments accordingly. See below for an example of how the formula worked in a sample situation: – Amount needed for 365 days – Average weight of one cow/calf is 1,200 lb – Total of 20 acres pasture – Average forage yield of pastures 9,500 lb/ac

TOTAL NUMBER OF ANIMALS = (20) x (9,500) = 190,000 (.04) x (1,200) x (365) = 17, 520 11 TOTAL ANIMALS MAXIMUM ACRES OF PASTURE NEEDED = (11) x (1,200) x (.04) x 365) = 192,720 (9,500) MINIMUM NUMBER OF ACRES 20 Your local NCRS office has experienced conservationists that can assist in balancing your animals with your forage. They can also help you develop a conservation plan to solve other problems you have identified on your farm/ranch. They do not charge for their assistance and there may be financial assistance available through state or federal programs. All NRCS programs and services are voluntary. 28 | May 2018

By Myra Basham

Showing A Longhorn Female With Calf At Side From 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.

AT HOME

Smaller affiliate shows where the crowd is comprised primarily of breeders will sometimes allow the really young calves to be loose according to Head. “Young calves have a tendency to get tangled in the lead rope, and it isn’t going to stray too far from its mom, so leaving it loose is a simple solution. This doesn’t work too well at large shows with lots of unfamiliar people around, so the calf has to stay tied.” Controlled nursing is a tip that many may not have considered, but in a ring full of quality females, details can make a difference. Head suggests the owner may want to address this in the hours right before the show. “I want the cow to have a pretty udder - not overly full, not empty and not lopsided. You should control the amount the calf Young calves just need to be kept under control. Older calves should be set up as the dam is. drinks, and make sure that Once a calf is on the ground at home, Cody Himthe calf nurses on each quarter evenly.” melreich, Hi5 Longhorns, recommends working with If you do happen to have your cow go into labor at the calf early to get it used to being haltered and tied up. the show, Himmelreich and Head both recommend The TLBAA Handbook states that all calves at side must moving the cow into a pen by herself and letting nabe shown in a halter, so it is best if they are used to it ture take its course.

Stephen Head, Double H Longhorns, has set up a special section of his trailer for calves. “I have a piece of cattle panel cut to fit the internal width of my trailer;” explains Head. “I clip this into place and it creates a separate section. I can adjust it to the number of calves I am carrying. I separate the calves so that they don’t get stepped on in the trailer.

When possible, plan your shows out ahead of time in order to be better prepared. Try not to travel with females due to calve to avoid having one calve at a show. Be aware of due dates of all your bred females and plan your entries accordingly.

IN THE SHOW BARN Each show is different as far as stalling and tie-out arrangements. Tie-outs are common and most shows, especially fairs and stock shows, require all animals be tied regardless of age. Himmelreich suggests allowing some extra room for the calf to lessen chances of it getting stepped on. 30 | May 2018

The CTLA had their Spring Sale, Heifer Jackpot and Annual Meeting on April 7th. At the sale 25 lots were offered with a new venture added this year of six registered quarter horses from the Red Spring Ranch. The weather didn’t help the sale and as we were still waiting for spring to DEB LESYK arrive, breeders were concerned with feed PRESIDENT supplies and calving in the bitter wind and 306-867-9427 snow, so sale averages were down from last year.  Results can be found on the CTLA webpage. We were delighted to see new breeders from Manitoba attending the sale and purchasing some of the cattle. The Heifer Jackpot had breeders from three provinces displaying their favorites in two classes, Jan-April and May-December.  The final four included the top two (L-R):Daryl Swark Reserve Chamfrom each class moving on to the championship round. pion.

The Annual Meeting sorted out some long standing concerns,  got a start on updating the by-laws, reviewed association agreements, and provided ample time for discussion on financials,  summer plans and the return of the Texas Longhorns to the Canadian Western Agribition in November. Directors elected for two year terms included Cody Robbins, Clarence Deken, Deb Lesyk and Derek Overlid.  They will join Kristine Fossum, Daryl Allemand, and John Jespersen.  The Directors did ask that both the TLBAA Region 1 Director Jeff Jespersen and the ITLA Regional Director Gordon Musgrove be invited to attend all association (L-R): Gus Joyes- 4th, Derek Overlid- 3rd, Daryl Swark- 2nd, Dwight directors meetings.

2018 Butler Meeting On Saturday, March 17th, 35 Butler breeders from across the US met for our annual meeting. This year we had the honor of meeting at the Butler Museum in League City, TX. During our meeting we discussed our upcoming Butler futurity and our Annual Butler Breeders Sale held Labor Day weekend in Lockhart, TX. We were treated to a delicious BBQ lunch and a tour of the museum. The museum sustained damage during Hurricane Harvey so it is currently closed and will reopen Fall of 2018. They graciously let us use the facilities despite that fact. If you have never had the opportunity to visit the museum you definitely should. It houses the largest collection on longhorn skulls donated by Butler breeders over 4. the last 20 years as well as art, other antiques and collectables. Visit to the herd room is a must. It is a spectacular display of longhorns. Definitely should be on your bucket list if you are a longhorn enthusiast or a history buff.

Longhorns Make the Pages of Sacramento Magazines Submitted by Heather Thompson Marysville, Ca is my hometown. A small farming community north of Sacramento about an hour.   When I was young, I thought it was terribly boring and couldn’t wait to leave.  After having my own children (and having my home broken into) I had decided it was time to head back home and embrace country living. We found an amazing, unique home on 12 acres and knew that was the place.  Many in the area assumed we would farm walnuts, peaches, almonds or prunes on the excess land.  But we thought the beautiful home deserved something as original to this area as it was.   Thus the breathtaking Texas Longhorn.  What better to stop traffic?  Sure, there are all kind of cattle around here.   But nothing like the Registered Texas Longhorn we shipped here.   Word gets around in a small town, and soon I had peeked the interest of many locals.   Jennifer Me & Mine Magazine pages Traynham from Me and Mine reached out to include me in a Woman in Ag feature.  And with the help of Design Shop Interiors, Sacramento Home Magazine blasted out 11 pages of our home, Longhorns, and chicken coop!  They named the article Full Circle...just like my return to where it all began.   What an amazing ride!   We’ve only been breeders for less than a year and we love every second of it!  

News on the Trail wants your submissions! Even if you don’t want to appear to be tootin’ your own horn, showing others recognition or events your a part of may inspire new ideas for readers on how they can get involved with their communities and educate others about the Texas Longhorn breed.

Payne Named Outstanding Rancher 2018 By Conservation District TLBAA member Carla Jo Payne, Flying C Cattle Company, was recently honored by the Denton County  Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) as their choice for Outstanding Rancher 2018. Payne’s ranch is a cow/calf operation near Slidell, TX. The ranch runs a commercial herd of Angus and Black Baldy cows with Wagyu bulls and a separate herd of Registered Texas Longhorns. Payne was recognized not only for her achievements with her cattle operation, but for her conservation plan to improve the ranch, which she began in cooperation with the SWCD in 2010. The presentation noted Payne’s accomplishments as a Longhorn breeder, in the show ring and as a judge. It also recognized her local sales of grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free Longhorn beef. The ranch is comprised of more than 1,400 acres of deeded and leased acres comprised of predominantly native rangeland with some introduced pasture, hay and cropland. A few of the conservation steps noted were: • Cross fencing and rotational grazing • Pond construction • Controlled burning • No-Till Farming • Soil Testing and Plant Tissue Analysis Activities which served to educate the public through the years were also mentioned including: • Girl Scout agricultural tours to demonstrate where our food comes from • AgriLife Extension Service on pasture management practices • North Texas Longhorn Affiliate on making a living raising cattle • NRCS on improving conservation delivery for women landowners and producers • Presentations at Texas A&M conference explaining how to market grass fed beef • Presentation at a GLCI conference on solutions for healthy land and profitable ranching Payne serves on the Wise County Livestock and Forage Committee and is a board member of the Cross Timbers Texas Grazing Land Coalition.

Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow

President’s Message

Dear TLBT Members, It’s spring and the show season is speeding up! With the busier schedule, I would like to remind everyone to continue keeping up with their grades. I hope that all of your other extra-curricular activities are going well. I would personally like to thank everyone who stopped by to talk at Sulphur Springs, Houston, and Stillwater. We are nearing the World Show soon and I would like to thank everyone who has generously helped out in fundraising. I would like to specifically announce that we held a cow patty bingo fundraiser at the Stillwater show. Francisco Ranch and Mr. Rob Van Liew each won a round and donated all of the money back to the TLBT. If you would like to help fundraise, please contact me or any of the other TLBT officers. I would like to remind people to be sending in pictures of their kids for the end of year power point at the World show. I would also remind every senior to be taking advantage of any scholarship opportunities the generous associations of this breed offer. Last but not least, be preparing your speeches for the World Show and Autobahn so you will nail it when the time comes. There are opportunities all around us; we just need to recognize them more often and take hold of them before they disappear. Seniors, our time is almost up, spend your time at the upcoming shows as if it was your last because soon we will be headed off to college and participating in other grown up activities like a J-O-B. So seize the day and make as many memories as you can with the people you love.

Matthew Wallace OFFICER SPOTLIGHT:

ZAIDA ESPINOSA

TLBT Office: Senior Director Age: 17 1.)What school do you attend? Clear Falls High School 2.)How many years have you been a member of the TLBT? 2 years 3.)Why did you join the TLBT? It was my first year showing Longhorns and thought it would be a good way to learn more about the breed and meet new people! 4.) What is your favorite Longhorn show, and why? My favorite Longhorn show is the STLA Rockdale show since it happens to fall on my birthday weekend, and what’s a better way to celebrate a birthday than to be at a Longhorn show? 5.) What is your favorite Longhorn color and/or pattern? Definitely speckled! 6.) Where did you earn your first award? What type of award? My first buckle I earned showing longhorns was at the STLA Winterfest show in Edna, TX and I won Senior Showmanship! 7.) What is your funniest TLBT moment? During the TLBT leadership camp over the summer when all of us went and played games at the outside stage they had! Some of the best laughs this past summer! 8.)What has been your biggest challenge showing Longhorns? My biggest challenge showing longhorns has to be showmanship. Showmanship hasn’t always been my strongest point but practicing more and more each day has helped me become a better showman in and out of the ring. 9.) What is your favorite movie? By far the Temple Grandin movie!

10.) Do you enjoy showing Longhorns and why? Longhorns are definitely my favorite breed of livestock to show! Everybody is always so helpful and positive and you’ll never walk out of the ring with out being congratulated on whichever placing you were. 11.) What person has influenced you the most? Mr. Henry Wilson has definitely influenced me the most. He gives the best hugs and is always there for you when you’re in need of anything! 12.) If you were going to be turned into a mythical creature, what would you want to be? Probably a unicorn because who wouldn’t want a white hide that never gets stained! 13.) What is your favorite quote? Why? “You may be bent but you are not broken.” I heard that quote at Mr. and Mrs. Bakers Sunrise camp award ceremony this past summer and it has stuck with me ever since! 14.) What is your favorite season? Why? Well in South Texas there’s mostly only Summer and if we’re lucky we get a Winter, but if I could picture us having a colorful Fall then that would be at the top of the list. 15.) What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a State Trooper and a Foster mom. I would also love to judge Livestock all over the World and own a Longhorn ranch with some Hampshire X Suffolk show sheep too! 16.) What is the best part about being a TLBT member? You get to be part of a wonderful organization that has many great role models within the great Longhorn breed! 17.) What advice would you give a newcomer to TLBT? Be involved and don’t be scared! I was once a newbie and I know it’s not always easy talking to new people being a rookie but it is so worth it!

TLBAA Breed Advisory Committee’s

Herd Management Guide

SPRING Calving: 1. Discontinue supplemental feeding to cattle as green grass becomes available. A source of salt as well as a good commercial calcium:phosphorus mineral mix should be available on a free choice basis. Consider anaplasmosis control in your mineral. 2. Vaccinate all new calves for blackleg and malignant edema with a 2-way Clostridial bacterin (4-way or 7-way Clostridial is fine, also), leptospirosis with lepto pomona. Consult your local veterinarian for other diseases that may be a problem in your area. Many producers also consider intranasal IBR/P13, modified live Pasteurella hemolytica and/or BRSV. 3. Vaccinate all heifers that are 4-10 months of age for brucellosis. 4. If not previously done this year, after calving and before breeding, vaccinate cows for leptospirosis with 5-way lepto vaccine. Consider vibriosis vaccination depending on advice of your veterinarian. 5. If not done previously, semen evaluate bulls. A standard breeding soundness exam should be conducted on all bulls prior to the start of the breeding season. 6. Put bulls with the cow herd. Mature bulls in single sire pastures should be able to service 30-50 females in a 60-90 day breeding season. Two-to-three-year-old bulls should be able to service 20-40 females. Young yearling bulls can be excellent breeders, but reduce the number of females per bull to 15-25 head and limit the breeding season to 60 days. Special attention to maintaining good nutritional condition of the young bulls is needed. Yearling bulls should only run with other yearling bulls in multi-sire pastures. Older bulls will tend to establish a social dominance over young bulls, creating potential problems. 7. Deworm cows and bulls for internal parasites. 8. Spray all cattle for external para-

sites and then place fly tags in both ears on bulls and cow herd to control external parasites through the summer. 9. Consider herbicide use to control excessive weed populations in pastures. Fertilize improved pastures to improve forage production.

FALL Calving: 1. Wean calves and select animals to be retained through yearling time. Breeders collecting weaning weight information should weigh all calves and adjust all weights to a 205 day of age equivalent. Within sex group, calculate a weaning weight ratio to be used as a selection criteria. Identify all calves by sire group to determine which sires are producing the superior calves. 2. Pregnancy check all females as well as check for unsoundness and udder problems for culling purposes. 3. Vaccinate all heifer calves between 4 and 10 months of age for Brucellosis. 4. If not done previously, all weaned calves should be vaccinated with a 7-way Clostridial bacterin, vaccinated for IBR-P13-BVD and de-wormed. Cull bull calves should be castrated prior to weaning.
