EDITOR’S NOTES

We’ve Finally Settled In! Spring is always a busy season, but this year, “busy” took on a whole new meaning for our office. If you haven’t already heard, we have relocated to a new office space. We’re still in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, but now we are at 221 W. Exchange, Suite 210. Our P.O. Box remains the same as do our contact numbers. We’re in the Cody Building, named for Buffalo Bill Cody, the building’s first proprietor. Built in 1908, it retains a lot of original features yet has been modernize into a comfortable office space. Come visit us when you’re in the area. We appreciate the patience you’ve had with us as we moved. There are few other changes to take note of as well. We have two board vacancies that need to be filled. See pg. 26 for more information and the necessary bio form to be considered. The deadline is fast approaching so take a look at the requirements and act now if you or someone you know is interested. A new feature in this issue is our Product Spotlight on pg. 16. The last member survey and recent Facebook posts indicate our breeders are interested in learning about new and innovative products. Each month we hope to bring you a few solution based products proven to be effective in Longhorn herd management and make ranch life easier. If you contact any of the companies featured in our magazine, let them know that you saw them in Trails Magazine. Do you have a product you would like to share? Reach out and let us know about it. As you take a look at the Spring sales we were able to include in this issue, you will notice strong averages throughout. While we are always impressed by the highest selling animals, those strong averages speak to a good first half of the year for the industry in general. With two more spring sales and a host of fall sales ahead, we look forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings for the Longhorn industry.

Trails Magazine was eager to check the product out at the 2016 Cattle Raisers Convention and excited at the opportunity to visit with CEO Emmett Savage and the Moocall team in April for a product overview.  How It Works This non-invasive, light weight, tail mounted sensor gathers over 600 pieces of data a second and accurately predicts when a cow is most likely to give birth by measuring tail movement patterns triggered by labor contractions. When they reach a certain level of intensity it sends a text alert directly to your cell phone one hour prior to calving. 

With a 30-60 day rechargeable battery, water resistant exterior, easy to program dashboard, and mobile app, it’s a great buy at under $300. About the Company Developed by a farmer in Ireland who lost a valuable heifer and calf; was determined to create a solution to prevent future losses. After a few years of development the company was launched in 2015. A high success rate partnered with happy customers has enabled Moocall to produce over 10,000 units in its first year. moocall.com

Easi-Scan by BCF

No Guess Pregnancy Checking with Easi-Scan Determining pregnancy and open status is vital to efficiently manage your breeding program. Detection methods vary, while some utilize manual palpation which takes acquired skill, others blood test with limitations, and then there is ultrasound. Ultrasound detection is the most accurate way to determine pregnancy and if cows are open and ready to be bred. Another beneficial product we found at the 2016 Cattle Raisers Convention was BCF’s Easi-Scan ultrasound 16 May/June 2016

machine. With it’s ultra portable design , EasiScan allows users to wear the device and select their display method either handheld or the BUG goggles (pictured). BCF’s line of EasiScan products are rugged, durable, and lightweight for use anywhere on the ranch. Economic Benefits The ability to detect pregnancy at 27 days,   gender determination at 55 days, accurate cycle stage for artificial insemination, and detect if cows are open all attribute to justifying the cost of this well designed tool. The biggest impact on farm economics comes from early detection of open cows. Cows which are detected open sooner can be rebred more quickly, reducing the number of days open.  In addition to cattle, the Easi-Scan machine can also be used on equine, sheep, and goats. About the Company BCF has been developing technology to improve animal care for over 30 years and are widely respected by animal health professionals worldwide. Easi-Scan’s previously owned units start at $3,000. bcftechnology.com

Nebraska Texas Longhorn Association 35th Annual Sale Broken Bow Livestock Auction, Broken Bow, NE Auctioneer-Bill Sayre, Brookfield, MO Sale Coordinators – Rodger & Bonnie Damrow, Roca, NE Results Submitted by Bonnie Damrow The N.T.L.A. sale crowd arrived in Broken Bow just in time to enjoy the much needed rain-well over 2” by the end of the day on April 16th. This was our 3rd annual spring sale here in Broken Bow. Friday night a nice crowd gathered for food, drinks, reminiscing, and relaxation at the Broken Bow Country Club. We enjoyed Eileen’s cooking & cake balls for dessert. Saturday morning started off with a silent auction just before the sale-an N.T.L.A. longtime tradition. We look forward to homemade breads and longhorn treasurers. The N.T.L.B.T. (Nebraska Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow) had fun selling raffle tickets throughout the day. 25% of the proceeds will be going to the youth fund. 1st place is a heifer calf & bull calf donated by Anders Longhorns, Crawford, NE. & Damrow Longhorns, Roca, NE. Drawing will be held at the Nebraska State Fair WQ Shows in August. Bidders came from Nebraska, South Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, & Texas. We were glad to have our sale on cattleusa again this year for our customers use. We are so thankful for all the individuals that made this sale possible. A huge thank you to everyone for helping out! Thank you to all the consignors, buyers, bidders, members, & auctioneer for making this sale possible. It was really great to see so many new buyers this year. We are looking forward to the 36th sale next spring.

Calling all Affiliates!

The TLBAA Prince and Princess competition is returning for 2016. This competition is presented by the TLBAA Affiliate Committee and is open to all affiliates recognized by the TLBAA. What’s required: • A TLBAA registered 2015 heifer and/or bull • Owned by an active TLBAA member in good standing • Member must belong to a recognized TLBAA affiliate • An awesome untouched digital photo (side profile)  not showing any brands or recognized background • A $100 entry fee for each entry • One entry per affiliate for each competition   As this competition has evolved over the past five years, it is well known that a great untouched photograph enhances the animal’s chances, and assists the judges in selecting the finalists as all they will see is the picture and date of birth, nothing else is shared with them.

Entry deadline is August 15th so plan now on how the animals will be selected. For further information or any questions or concerns, please email halters.buckets@yahoo.com or phone Deb Lesyk at 306-867-9427.

SHOWS

2016 Longhorn Expo: Fort Worth, TX – The 2016 Longhorn Expo including the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America’s World Show and the National Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow’s Youth Show embarks on its twentyninth year from June 8-12, 2016 held at the historic Will Rogers Coliseum. Once referred to as the National Show the rules and classes may have changed but the concept remains the same – “the opportunity to compete with the best of the best longhorns from all over the country,” stated Kevin Rooker, World Show Steering Committee Cochairman. Over 1,200 invitations were mailed to World Qualifying exhibitors this year. The entire show circuit year recognized an above average number of exhibitors in the 44 World Qualifying affiliate or major shows. “Exhibitors may have worked for a year to breed, feed and qualify their animals for the largest and most competitive show of the year,” said Rooker. To receive a qualifying invitation an exhibitor must have exhibited and placed in an affiliate or major show.

Chris and Brandi Lindsey of Laurel, MS achieved many traveled miles for their ten-year-old son Tyler to exhibit. “We have been from Laurel to Decatur, San Angelo and many places in between,” said Chris. “We want to show our support to the youth and the show circuit.” Lindsey stated some of the best qualities about exhibiting in shows is showcasing your breeding program, meeting new breeders, developing new friendships and quality family time. “It’s important to realize the diversity in the longhorn breed, it’s a breed that fits everyone’s desires,” said Lindsey. He recommends “believing and feeding what you like, but show what you love.” Rooker explains the hook, line and sinker of the Longhorn Expo. “When you become a TLBAA member, you hear all about the World Show (aka Longhorn Expo). You

r e a l l y have no idea what the event consists of or why people would talk about it. After you attend your first one you will realize what an awesome event it is and you will decide to attend annually.” The Longhorn Expo is much more than a show. It is a celebration of friendships, breeding programs, hard work and longhorns. It

Join the Fun! also consists of the National TLBT Youth Show, TLBAA Open Haltered Show, Open Free Division, Trophy Steer Show, Miniature Show and Photography Contest (all ages youth divisions and adult.) TLBT Youth will also have the traditional Livestock Judging, Gold Merit, and Quiz Bowl to participate in. There will also be a Senior Heifer Sale where five graduating seniors actively market their animal to raise money for their college education. Look forward to the return of the Breeders’ Memorial where we give tribute to those who have passed during the year. And to help round out the fun be prepared to kick up your heels and dance the night away after the awards banquet. This year we have former TLBT member Luke Erwin and his band performing.

“Do what you have to attend. It’s a tradition above all others,” said Rooker. “Get involved. Participate and/ or become a sponsor and see you at the 2016 Longhorn Expo.”

RULES & INFORMATION

HORN SHOWCASE FUTURITY

The TLBAA HSC Futurity is set up by age divisions to allow breeders the opportunity to exhibit the total package animals that represent their breeding operation. We do a 75% cash payout based on the class size with the house retaining 25% to cover cost. Payout will go to the top 20% of the class. Animals will enter the ring based on age. Youngest to oldest. When the animal being exhibited walks into the ring the 5 judge panel will be given the animals DOB, and a horn measurement taken from the previous day. It will be a TTT, TH, Twist for the females, and a TTT, or TH for the males in the contest. With the 5 judge panel the high score and the low score will be thrown out and the remaining three judges will be added together for the final score. In the event of a tie there will be a tie breaker judge selected in advance. That judges score will be the tie breaker in the event of a tie. Animals must measure in at least one measurement class to participate in futurity as well as be eligible for a Superior Award.

HORN SHOWCASE SUPERIOR AWARD

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

BULL ALLEY

• Bulls must be TLBAA A.I. certified and have an A.I. certified number • Bulls that are living must be present in Lawton, OK; deceased bulls may be entered for semen sales only. (Deceased bulls may have their offspring on site to respresent them.) • Each owner should bring a semen tank with semen for sale or have semen sent to Champion Genetics.

By: JUSTIn romBeCK

piece of art work produced by Gary Henry, called “The Seven families,” portrays the diverA sity found in the horns of Texas Longhorn cattle.

The seven families helped to save the Longhorn breed from extinction, and they each had their own strongly-held belief about how a Texas Longhorn female should look. Some of these founders preferred long total horns while others preferred the variations of the elegant twist. There are several distinguishing characteristics that make up different types of twist on a Longhorn. While there are some similarities, it still helps to know what type of twist is found on a female before she has time to mature. This will help a breeder understand what to expect at an earlier age.

• The distance from the eyes to the nose will be longer than that found on a Longhorn cow with a Traditional Texas Twist (also known as a Symmetrical twist). • The ears on these females are a little longer and deeper and typically will not sit in front of the horn unless startled. The top of the ear usually comes to just the bottom of the horn.

AsymmetricAl Twist _________________________________________ females with an Asymmetrical twist tend to have a gentle roll over the top of their poll. With this type of twist, the cow’s faces may seem a little narrower and elongated. Her eyes will be a little more forward on the face, but not as much as will be seen on the females with forms of a triple twist.

• These females will also develop a small knot in the center of their forehead just below the center of their poll that sits down off of the crest of their skull just a bit. • Head shape will consist of a flat arc that encompasses the area from the eyes to the horn with a slight, gentle roll encompassing the area where the skull divots in around the eyes to the horn. • The distance from the eyes to the muzzle will be slightly elongated with pronounced nasal bone. • The horn with the harder twist on these females will be more egg shaped than the other horn which may be a little more round in structure.

trAditionAl texAs Twist ___________________________________

HAndle BAr Twist ___________________________________

This type of twist has been referred to as a Symmetrical Twist. This will refer to the smoothness and how symmetrical these females’ horns are in comparison to each other. you will see an upside down “A” when looking at these cows’ faces. This “A” feature extends from the nose to the horn, while keeping the eyes in a straight line. Like the females of the Asymmetrical twist, these females’ eyes sit between the side of their head but not as far forward as the various types of Triple Twist, or Goat Horned Twist.

This type of twist gets its name from the resemblance of the handle bars on a bicycle. These females may appear to be total horned females in their younger years, but as they mature, the uniqueness of this animal appears.

• Their ears are smaller and tighter to the head reflecting more femininity and refinement. • The area between the eyes will be smooth, but as you work up the skull where the horn divots in between the eyes and horn, there will be a soft roll. This sort of roll will continue to the peak of the skull. • As you review the nose of these females, it will flair out around the muzzle. • These females as a whole will be considered very refined in their face and may be considered the most feminine of all of the females.

• The top of the skull on these females is predominately flat. from the eyes to the horn, it is not quite a square as the eyes sit a little lower on the face, just making it a slight rectangle. • The area that encompasses the skull from the horn to the eyes will have a slight roll. The head shape as a whole on these females is very refined and feminine. • The component of the skull that holds the eye in place will have a slight outward roll to her face. • The horns go straight out of the skull and come forward with an up slope, before rolling out. The rolling out process usually will start at about age four. • The horn shape at the base will be slightly egg shaped more than perfectly round. • A sub family of this is referred to as the “Candy Cane.” All of the features are the same, but the “Candy Cane” females’ tips roll around one more time and are pointing back down toward the ground.

“WHile tHere Are some similArities, it still Helps to knoW WHAt type of twist is found on A femAle Before sHe HAs time to mAture.”

open scoop Twist ___________________________________

GoAt Horn Twist ___________________________________

There may be controversy if this should be considered a type of twist at all, but when reviewing the movement in the horn, it has to be considered. The females that make up this group are very smooth and uniform to their facial makeup.

one of the easiest ways to distinguish if a female will develop into a Goat Horned Twist at an early age is she will have a severe backward angle to her horns, although this is not the only feature to determine if the Longhorn has a Goat Horn Twist.

• Females in this group will have an upside down A-shape from their nose to their eyes.

other features will include:

• Working up the skull further, you will see a smooth indent into the skull that comes back out where the skull meets the horn. • The area that encompasses from the horns to the eyes is relatively flat and smooth. • From the poll to the eyes will not be a perfect square as the distance between the horns is shorter than the distance between the eyes. • You will see what resembles a trellis peak in the center of the skull with smooth lines that go to the horns. • The upper ¼ of the ear will cover about 1/3 of the horn. • The horn type that comes out of the head on these females is round.

• A roll over the entire face. Very dominant over the forehead with a distinguishing poll developing at 6 months of age or sooner. • The eye sockets are very pronounced and look like small baseballs coming out of the skull. • From the eye to the horn, there is an inward dish, and the skull between the horns is narrower than the distance between the eyes. • The bridge of the nose extends to the center of the eyes, whereas in the other types it will start at the bottom of the eye line. The bridge of the nose will extend down to the muzzle and will be very rounded in appearance. • The ears will sit low and will not cover the horn at all. They will have the appearance of an oval on its side, but coming to an abrupt point. • Side note: These females are generally very clean in their throat.

corkscreW Twist type #1 ___________________________________

corkscreW Twist type #2 ___________________________________

This horn type can be one of the hardest ones to figure out. As these two types of females mature, their head shape changes. As a young animal, their horns come out of their head and go up.

These animals that are the second type of Corkscrew are very similar to type one. from the time of being a yearling heifer or younger, they will have an egg shape appear on the horn. As the animal matures, the horn will become more oblong and narrow as the horn and animal continue to mature.

• From their eyes to horn, they have a significant dish into skull. • Their ears do not go over their horn. You will see daylight from the horn to the ear. • As a young animal, the head is almost football shaped, but as these females mature, you will find their skulls tend to narrow and get longer. These females tend to have large ears. • Their eyes sit very pronounced on the front of their face. • Even as a young animal, the horns are egg shaped, and continue to get narrower as the horn continues to twist and get longer. • As they mature, their horns will have made three full twists and be pointing straight up in the air. • The area across the poll can be varied with these females. It can vary from smooth light roll across the top of the poll to very rounded. This type of female will have a very dominant knot on the center of forehead that resembles a golf ball under the hide. It should be sitting on the top of the forehead as well as creating a crest over the center of the poll.

• The head shape is very similar in all aspects. All features of the face are about the same, but the length of face is not quite as long and just a little wider. • The ears on these females, or steers, will cover about 1/3 to ½ of the horn. • This type of twist looks just like a corkscrew twisted yet open in the center. If one were to try, a round bar could be inserted through the middle of the horn, going from one horn to the next. one would be able to let go and the animal would be able to support it with its horns alone. once the animal tips its head to one side, the bar would come rolling out. • Animals that have Corkscrew horns will not lose their horn caps after they die. The twist is so severe that they are not allowed to slide off. All other types of horns have a hard outer shell that will slide off after the animal is deceased and the calcium that made up the sinus has time to dry.

“femAles WitH An AsymmetricAl twist tend to HAve A Gentle roll over tHe top of tHeir poll.”

• one feature the females will have is a dish in their face. This will be found if you draw a line between the eyes and go to two or three inches towards the nose. At this point, the nasal sinuous will rise back up to the muzzle. • Side note: These females are very slow growers and many breeders send them across the scales not knowing what an amazing animal they have in front of them.

Every Longhorn breeder has asked the question: “Is she pregnant?”, which is usually followed quickly by “How far along is she?” Breeders want to know that their females are producing, and if you are planning on selling a female private treaty or at auction, it will be one of the the first questions asked. It is also an essential part of herd management. Following are four ways in which you can find the answer, each with its own merits and drawbacks.

1.OBSERVATION

Watching females for signs of heat is the simplest pregnancy check. The heat cycle can range from 17 to 24 days with an average of 21 days. If you have a female in question kept where you can observe her daily, then you can begin watching for signs of heat. The most visible sign is a cow that allows other cows or young bulls to mount her and she does not quickly move away, but rather stands or only moves slighly forward. There are other signs that may occur before actual standing heat. The female may mount other cows. She may bellow more, be restless or overly alert. 52 | May/June 2016

You may notice swelling or reddening of the vulva or a stringy mucus disharge. These preliminary signs can vary, but they are a good indication to watch closely for standing heat. If she is kept in the pasture with a bull, let him do the detective work for you. When the bull is displaying the tell-tell head tilting and lip curl and his advances are not met with a good head-butt from the female, it’s a good sign she is in heat. While this is certainly the most natural way to determine pregnancy, for many Longhorn owners it is sim-

2.Palpation

The most traditional method of verifying pregnancy is palpation. This method is used at most sales to confirm pregnancy and determine how many months along the female is. The process involves manually entering the rectum of the cow and feeling the ovaries, uterus and uterine arteries throught the rectal wall. It is a process that takes a lot of practice to be able to interpret what is being felt. With experience, pregnancy and due date can be determined between 35-100 days, or after 7 months of pregnancy. Mid-term is a much harder stage to gain information from palpation, as the fetus drops deeper and may be out of reach until it grows larger. The main benefit of palpation is that you not only determine pregnancy, you can tell what stage of pregnancy has been reached and better predict a due date. It also works in reverse if you were in doubt as to when the female was actually bred and confirm which sire actually bred her if there was more than one exposure. There are a few things to consider when looking at palpating females, either by a vet or with the help of an experienced individual. There is always risk inherit in handling livestock. Palpation involves invasive physical contact and can lead to injury for the female or the handler, no matter how much care is taken. There is also a small risk of abortion following the handling of the uterus in early stages of pregnancy as well as a chance of spreading a disease such as BVD. While these risks exist, the information gained from palpation is more detailed than a blood test and less expensive than ultrasound.

3.

BLOOD TESTING

For a yes or no answer, blood testing is a very accurate test which can be used as early as 28 days after breeding. The process is simple and, even when a vet is called upon to draw the blood, it is cheaper than paying for palpation or ultrasound. A syringe is simply used to draw a blood sample which is then sent to a lab to determine whether it is positive or negative for pregnancy. The test is based on the presence of proteins that are only produced during pregnancy. The results usually take 2-3 days to come back. Compared to palpation, the blood test is less invasive and doesn’t carry the risk of transferring disease. It is quick and easy to perform. The only downside for the breeeder not deterred by the wait time, would be the inability of the blood test to predict a due date or potential problems..

4.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound has gained popularity in the beef cattle industry over the past several years. Once relegated to the vet’s office, ultrasound has progressed to smaller units which are portable and can be powered with a rechargeable battery. While the equipment varies greatly in size and portability, the wide array of information they can convey is what makes it a beneficial tool. While it is possible for an ultrasound to detect a pregnancy very early, it is most accurate when used 20 to 100 days after breeding. The ultrasound offers more than just stage of pregnancy. Properly timed, usually within 60 - 90 days, the ultrasound can give an accurate determination of sex. Other issues can be quickly assessed via ultrasound as well; including abnormalities in the fetus, lack of heartbeat and lost embryos. Ultrasound may also be used beyond pregnancy to check ovarian structures for issues that could cause reproductive issues. While not as cost prohibitive with the advancement of portable technology, this is still usually the priciest option.

Questions TO ASK

Many factors need to be considered in order to choose which method to use and when. Ask yourself these questions: How much time do you have to invest? How much money do you have to spend? Do I need an immediate answer? Is the calf or cow of value to merit more expense? Are you concerned there is a problem with the pregnancy? There may be times when you will need to use more than one method. For instance, you observed the cow being bred and she hasn’t shown signs of being in heat after 21 or more days. At this point you may have a blood test done to simply and cheaply determine if she is pregnant. Another case may be you that had a very promising female lose a pregnancy. She is pregnant for the second time, but not acting normally. At this point you may choose to use ultrasound as it is less invasive and will give you a visual of an potential problems with the pregnancy. Finally, you have made a substantial investment in a foundation female. When you purchased her she had blood tested pregnant and you were given a due date by the seller. She is now supposed to be 7 months into the pregnancy, but she is not developing the roundness typical of a pregnant female. Manual palpation or ultrasound would be options to determine if she is still pregnant and how far along she really is. With the tools available to vets and producers today, you only need to decide how much you need to know and how quickly do you need an answer.

DAMS OF MERIT

Dam of Merit Program: Great Opportunity to Showcase Dependable Productivity of Texas Longhorn Females The Dam of Merit Program has been available for TLBAA members for many years as a tool to recognize those Texas Longhorn females that stand out in the area of production among Texas Longhorn breeders. Often overlooked as an effective marketing tool, this list is an official record of the positive reproductive record of Longhorn females. How can it benefit in your program? First, among fellow breeders, it shows your dedication to building a herd on a foundation of solid, reproduceable genetics. No one can afford females that do not produce offspring regularly and this record shows off those dependable genetics in your herd. Second, among other cattle breeders, it promotes the cost effectiveness of the Texas Longhorn breed. Dependably producing a calf every year is a trait every breed hopes for in a female. Such evidence of productivity can sway other cattle owners to consider bringing Longhorns into a crossbred program or starting a secondary herd of Longhorns. You may even turn them into 100% Longhorn owners! Third, among those who have never owned livestock or own other types of livestock, the thought of generating a little regular income from that beautiful, unique piece of history is always a plus. If you’re a hobbyist or simply an animal lover, you still

want to know that when you’re ready to see calves on the ground, it will be high odds that the process will go smoothly. What’s the cost to you to get your female on the list? Only $25 plus a little time investment. You will need to make sure that as your females calve, you have updated their progeny records in H.O.R.N.S. If you have a female that qualifies, simply call the TLBAA office and speak to registrar Rick Fritsche, or drop him an email at rick@tlbaa.org and he will provide you with the necessary form to fill out to submit your dam for verification. Rick will also help with any questions you may have about “calf at side” information in H.O.R.N.S. Once the progeny have been verified, your dam will be added to the list which appears in TRAILS magazine, and you will receive a Dam of Merit certificate for your records. This is an affordable and easy benefit for members to promote a very important positive trait of Texas Longhorns that make owning them that much more satisfying. **NOTE: This is not a record TLBAA tracks for you. It is up to you, as a owner/breeder, to notify us when your cow has achieved this goal. We look forward to your participation.

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 major differences. Minerals are also important for proper fetal development. Regardless of what stage of pregnancy she’s in, a cow needs adequate vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to “build” the growing fetus. Deficiencies in certain nutrients can have an adverse affect on the future calf. 56 | May/June 2016

Texas Longhorn Trails


By Heather Smith Thomas “The only way to really determine the nutrient quality (levels of various nutrients, including minerals) of your forage is to have it analyzed,” says Williams. If forages are short on certain minerals, or the level of vitamin A is low, you may need to provide a supplement to make up for these deficiencies. Even if it’s hay from the same field as last year, it may have had different growing conditions. Variations in water, average temperatures, rate of growth, and stage of maturity when cut—along with conditions at harvest (whether it got rained on)—can make huge differences in quality of the hay. “If you cut it a week earlier or later in terms of bloom rotein requirements stage, for instance, increase during the the protein level may be different. later stages of gestation Doing a nutrient analysis may take a little time but you can then use your hay more efficiently and know when or if you need to add a supplement,” she explains. “This saves money in the long run because you know which hay is best quality, to feed your 2 and 3 year olds. You can feed lower quality hay to the main cow herd. If you end up with more top quality hay than you need, you can sell it and buy cheaper, lower quality hay for the main herd and really stretch your hay farther. Or, you can use less expensive forage like straw for filler,” says Williams. Your top quality hay can be used primarily as a supplement, for the mature cows, to augment a lower quality diet of winter grazing, straw, or poor quality hay. Knowing the nutrient levels of your hay sources can save money on feed, or influence the future health of your calves, or weight and percent of your next calf crop. “If you are not feeding the cows properly this spring, your next year’s calving season may be 90 days or longer (with some lightweight calves) instead of 45 to 60 days,” says Williams. You may also end up with a higher number of open cows. “Everything you do during the winter/spring this year will affect what happens the next year. It boils down to long-term planning,” she says. In years past some producers lost calves to what was termed “weak calf syndrome” and a number of University of Idaho studies eventually showed that the primary cause was shortage of protein in the diets of the cows, especially the younger cows. Calves born from protein-deficient dams were more likely to suffer cold stress and/or succumb to calfhood illnesses.

“Cattlemen today are much sharper about what to feed their cows. We are always glad to answer questions and offer advice, and let them know about all the research that has been and is being done. This is really paying off,” says Williams. Local extension programs are always a good source of information, and can answer the feeding questions a rancher might have. “For instance I have a program in which I can run rations for producers, especially if they have a hay analysis. This makes it easier, and I can determine how many pounds of protein, for instance, those cows need, and tweak it to fit that producer. This can give them a starting point. They can then look at their cows and monitor them to make sure they are not losing weight,” she says. “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 notice the weight loss soon enough,” says Williams. Don’t just turn them out to grass in early spring and stop feeding them. If the grass isn’t quite ready yet, they may lose too much weight and not breed back quickly.

SPRING Calving:

TLBAA Breed Advisory Committee’s

Herd Management Guide

1. If not done previously, 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. 2. Vaccinate all heifers that are four to 10 months of age for brucellosis. 3. If a high percentage of cows return to heat after 30-40 days of breeding, re-check bulls for fertility. Change bulls, if necessary, and re-evaluate your nutritional program if cows are not increasing in body condition as green grass comes on. 4. Prepare to cut native grass for hay prior to July 1. After harvesting for hay, do not mow or graze again until after frost. 58 | May/June 2016

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 four 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 dewormed. Cull bull calves should be castrated prior to weaning.
