About the Cover:

Ron & Donna Garison of Doyline LA, have been showing trophy steers since 1998! To them, it's only a hobby that they enjoy sharing with the folks of their community and the members of this great breed "The Texas Longhorn". Ron & Donna are compassionate about what the trophy steer represents as the Ambassador for the breed and the symbol of the American West!! TCR CASH represents what every person wants too see in their pasture for folks to enjoy as they drive by. Above all, they praise God for allowing us too show these cattle!!

Notesfrom the Editor The Trails magazine department is constantly under deadlines for publishing E-Blasts, E-Trails and the Trails magazine. We really need your help in staying on this course of action. If you are an advertiser, the deadline set for you is for the art department to help build and develop your advertising. We take great pride in spending quality time for the overall look of your advertising so you get the most for your dollar. We pride ourselves on customer service, and the advertiser approving their ad before it goes to the printer. For this process to be as efficient as possible, materials must be in by deadline. If you don’t follow that deadline, ad design and layout are rushed through the process without the proper amount of time. Quality suffers and mistakes are more likely. The Trails department also produces E-blasts, another valuable marketing tool. This advertisement is sent to the database of emails from Longhorn breeders and members who have signed up. Please allow 2-3 days for the creation, proofing and approval for the electronic advertisements. Credit card payment is required before the E-Blast will be sent out. Please know the Trails team is more than willing to help other departments in the TLBAA. With the Horn Showcase coming up rather quickly, we do whatever is asked from Sales and Events to insure a great event. It takes a whole team of willing staff members to get these events done for the TLBAA. We may be small in numbers, but we are mighty. See you down the road!

Highlights Top Ten Average: $4,063.00 per head

The 17th Annual Butler Breeder’s Invitational Sale was held August 30, 2014, in Lockhart, TX. Beginning with a delicious BBQ lunch, this year’s kitchen crew, headed by Mrs. Jackie McLeod, kept all in attendance well fed and hydrated throughout the weekend. With many new faces and first time buyers, including internet buyers, bidding was spirited and the prices were strong. Mrs. Janis Webb, who retired this year, was honored with a lifetime achievement award for her dedication and years of service to the sale and the Butler bloodline. Additionally, Ms. Dora Thompson and Mr. Russell Hooks received an appreciation award for their hard work and continued contributions to the sale and bloodline. This year’s sale was dedicated to the memory of Mrs. Ruth Hoffman and Dr. Ed Shehee Sr. It was a great sale, and we look forward to next year’s sale – Labor Day Weekend, Lockhart, TX.

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

GET ON THE HORN Even though early Texas Longhorns survived harsh weather conditions, they were being crossbred to near extinction. Thankfully the breed’s stewards back then and today are legion. Among them the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America, its Foundation and you – our members and friends. As you may know, the TLBAA has long sought a permanent place to call home, a place where we can continue to serve this peerless cattle breed with goals to: • Recognize the Texas Longhorn as a distinct breed and protect its unique connection with American history; • Promote breeding practices and preserve its purity; • Heighten public awareness of this distinct breed through ongoing education; • Recognize present breeders and encourage others to develop and maintain herds registered with the association to reserve this magnificent breed for posterity; • Aid in advancing scientific knowledge of past ancestry and future breeding of Texas Longhorn cattle; • And do such other things that are in the best interest of the breed, none of which shall be for profit. We have a dream for our new home, one as wide as BL Rio Catchit horns measured at 92.625” Tip-To-Tip, in 2013. We also have the blueprints, permits and a location we already own. Now, all we need is you. We cannot do this without your support, TLBAA members and friends. This will be your opportunity to preserve the legacy of a breed that has made more history than any other breed of cattle in the civilized world. It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally getting there, thanks to your help. From day one, the TLBAA has taken the long view, planning for a

34

hybrid facility that can move along our day-to-day business and at the same time acquaint the world with a breed that determined the character and occupation of the American Cowboy. Half of the space inside our new 10,000-square foot home will be dedicated to meeting the important needs of our 4,000 members while managing projects that include sales, events, the Longhorn registry and our exceptional Trails Magazine. The other half will be dedicated to telling the riveting story of the Texas Longhorn. Our welcoming museum will walk you through more than 300 years of Longhorn mystique. You’ll learn how this iconic breed was responsible for the birth of the American Cowboy, how it fed the folks in the North after the Civil War, and how it was the heart that pumped life into the famous Chisholm Trail. Displays focused on the Longhorn’s future will widen you interest event further – on topics ranging from lean beef to breeding to the breathtaking horn structure that always holds our gaze. Artifacts to interactive educational stations, this will be a museum for Texas neighbors, international visitors and you. We guarantee you’ll leave with an even deeper appreciation for what this magnificent breed represents and for the incredible hardships it endured to become the Longhorn we know today –and depend upon for tomorrow. All we need is you. We cannot do this without your support, TLBAA members and friends. This will be your opportunity to preserve the legacy of a breed that has made more history than any other breed of cattle in the civilized world. Become part of TLBAA history. Give what you can. Spread the word.

Dear TLBT Members, So the year has come and gone, and another one is upon us. My, how the time flies! This past August, at the 2014 World Show, we had our General Membership Meeting, where we held elections. Your new 2014-2015 show year officers are as follows: President, Tarah Moore; Vice President, Shelby Rooker; Secretary, Tud Krier; Treasurer, Josh Vinson; Reporter, Miracle Petree; Parliamentarian, Jake Vinson; Senior Directors, Alexandria Rivera and Jimmie Gee; Teen Directors, Haley Neal and Miriam Grace Fask; Intermediate Directors, Jonah Faske and Shyanne McClendon, and Junior Directors, Bella McDermott and Avery Roesler. Congratulations to each and every one of you, I cannot wait for another year of great ideas and swift progress. While at our Officer/Director leadership camp, held at the historical YO Ranch, we discussed our year and plans moving forward. One major decision we made was for our service project for the new show year to be Children of Fallen Soldiers. It reaches out to the children of fallen warriors and reminds them that America supports and mourns along with them. It also gives them the opportunities they need to chase after the American Dream as well as their own dreams. Each of the officers and directors, including myself, felt that it was a more than worthy cause, and that it would be great for our youth to give back to youth in need. Another change we made was some revisions to the Policies and Procedures, which is the list of duties each officer and director must fulfill within their term. A link to this will be put onto the TLBT website for y’all to review because we are required to give a 30 day public notice before finalizing changes. It will be voted on at the General Membership meeting at the Texas State Fair in just a couple of weeks. More updates from our leadership camp will be included in next month’s issue—we are still wrapping up a couple of things. Until then, stay safe and have fun! I can’t wait to see all of y’all at upcoming shows and events.

Why did you join the TLBT? It sounded like a lot of fun, and I liked the fact that you could earn scholarship money for your future. What are your favorite memories of the TLBT so far? My favorite memories of the TLBT so far are: my first show, the first time I won a belt buckle, when I got 1st in Livestock Judging this year at Autobahn, and when I made it in the Top 10 Hall of Fame the past two years. How is the TLBT going to help your future career? It allows kids to earn scholarship money for their future. They can also learn leadership and public speaking skills, which will help them as they go through life.

Sincerely, Do you enjoy showing Texas Longhorn cattle, and why? Yes I do. It is so much fun, and you make a lot of new friends. Tarah Moore TLBT President

Texas Longhorn Trails


October 2014

The new trophy, “Longhorn Roundup,” is a tabletop concept sculpture for the Chisholm Trail Commemorative Park on Brushy Creek in Round Rock, Texas.

By: Henry King “Longhorn Roundup” is the newest trophy in the storied competition for the bragging rights that go with winning the trophy steer competition at the TLBAA World Championship Show. Created by Austin-area sculptor Jim Thomas, the magnificent bronze was awarded for the first time at the 2014 show, which is also a part of the Texas Longhorn Expo. This year’s Grand Champion Trophy Steer was TCR Cash, owned by Ron & Donna Garison of Doyline, Louisiana. The Garisons have entered the trophy steer competition several times in the past, and were particularly pleased that their first Grand Champion was also the first to earn custody of “Longhorn Roundup.” The trophy steer competition is one of the most spectacular and crowd-pleasing events in any official TLBAA show, when the arena is filled with mature Texas Longhorn steers, each sporting a magnificent set of horns. The competition is fierce and the bragging rights that accompany the winner of the World Show include the trophy, which the winner is allowed to keep until the next year’s event. Permanent possession of the traveling trophy can be earned by an owner who wins it three consecutive years with a different steer each year. “Rustler’s Moon,” the previous travel-

NEW BRONZE FOR TLBAA WORLD SHOW TROPHY STEER COMPETITION

ing trophy, is now owned by El Coyote Ranch, Kingsville, Texas. El Coyote retired the trophy by winning with 2011 World Champion Diablo ECR, 2012 World Champion Novillo Para Siempre, and 2013 World Champion Dixie Finale. The first bronze in this trophy steer competition was a tabletop version of T.D. Kelsey’s “Texas Gold,” the magnificent oversize sculpture that dominates the TLBAA property in Fort Worth’s Historic Stockyards District. That bronze was retired by the Haythorn Ranch in Nebraska. The new trophy, “Longhorn Roundup,” is a tabletop concept sculpture for the Chisholm Trail Commemorative Park on Brushy Creek in Round Rock, Texas. Texas sculptor Jim Thomas was commissioned by the city of Round Rock, Texas, to create the 22 bronze figures – horses, cowboys, camp cooks and Texas Longhorn cattle – that commemorate the trail herds that passed through the current city of Round Rock. These cattle drives crossed Brushy Creek at the landmark “round rock” in the middle of the creek; this crossing is the location of the Chisholm Trail Commemorative Park. Other full-size bronze Longhorn sculptures include the “Bell Steer,” “Goin' to Water,” a walking Longhorn, and “Travis,” a reclining Longhorn. To date, five components have been installed in the park.

Sculptures of “The Pioneer Woman” and “The Pioneer Boy” complement the park, commemorating the Cluck family of nearby Leander, Texas. Hattie Cluck was the first woman known to walk the Chisholm Trail. “El Jefe y el Segundo,” an interactive sculpture of the trail drive foreman and his horseback second in command, are scheduled for completion in early 2015. Cattle brands registered to several local families are included on some of the sculptures to commemorate their heritage in the area. Limited edition tabletop versions of all of the figures are available from the Jonestown artist or the City of Round Rock Parks Department to help finance the park project. Jim Thomas is a nationally recognized sculptor with memberships in several professional organizations, including Texas Society of Sculptors and the Guild of Austin Architectural Artisans. He is a three-time “Gold Medalist” in the Texas Cowboy Artist Association, and while he says he is not a cowboy, he has raised Quarter Horses and Texas Longhorn cattle for nearly 50 years. He began his art career at the same time he was running his advertising agency in Amarillo and living on a small ranch northwest of that city. His website is www.jimthomasbronzestudio.com. --continued to pg. 54 Texas Longhorn Trails

Division C Directors To Be Elected

Coming up for nominations soon will be all Division C directors, consisting of two (2) At-Large positions and Regions 13-18. Watch for your nomination form being mailed 90 days prior to our Annual Membership Meeting which will be held in Fort Worth, Texas in January 2015. Please remember that members must be active and in good standing with the TLBAA to be placed on the ballot after receiving five nominations. According to the TLBAA By-Laws, Section 2—D: At least ninety (90) days prior to the Annual Membership Meeting, the TLBAA Office shall mail to the Active and Lifetime Members a request for nomination of individual or individuals for Director in the member’s representational region. Such member nominations shall be received in the Association office no later than sixty (60) days prior to the Annual Meeting. In order that any member nominee be eligible to be placed on the election ballot, he must receive write-in nominations from five (5) members who are Active or Lifetime Members. Should there be no members nominated by the membership for a particular Region, or should a nominee decline to have his name placed on the ballot, the Board of Directors will appoint an Active or Lifetime Member in good standing domiciled within the division to fill the vacant position at the same meeting as the election

of TLBAA officers. No less than forty-five (45) days prior to the annual meeting of the membership, the TLBAA office or designated CPA firm shall mail official printed ballots to each qualified Active and Lifetime Member in good standing of that region or division. This ballot shall contain the names of the candidates, if any, who were properly nominated by members. All written ballots must be returned to the CPA with a postmark not less than twenty-one (21) days prior to the Annual Meeting in order to be validated and counted. All ballots received will be validated and counted by an independent CPA firm or other organization experienced in voting tabulation as designated by the Executive Committee. The nominees receiving the most valid votes shall be elected. All newly elected Directors shall be installed at the Annual Membership Meeting. A tie vote will be broken by the Chairman of the Board drawing one of the names by lot. If a nominee wants a recount of the ballots in their election race, they will have to submit a formal request for a recount to the Board of Directors but not more than sixty (60) days after election results have been announced at the annual meeting. The contester or their representative would then physically go to the CPA firm and watch this recount at his/her costs.

One of his agency’s clients was the YO Ranch, where he often served as a hunting and fishing guide for personalities he recruited for their PR impact – these included such diverse individuals as the Shah of Iran and U.S. astronauts. “We invited public personalities – movie people, ranch and rodeo people, entertainment people – we invited them to the ranch so we could brag about those guys coming to the ranch and hunting.” The astronauts, in particular, played a pivotal part in the process Thomas utilizes in the production of bronze castings. “The bronze-making process is about 3,000 years old,” said Thomas. “The ancient people would make their molds out of clay that they literally dug out of creek banks. Later they developed a high-temperature plaster that they used for 400 to 500 years. When we started, we were looking for something better, and the astronauts told me about the ceramic NASA had developed for the space shuttle ablative heat tiles. They got me that formula, so early on, in the late 60’s, we were able to start making our own ceramic, which was a much better material to use. NASA invented it and the dental supply people

finally got on board and started manufacturing this ceramic.” Bronze has evolved over the centuries as the preferred sculpture medium, partially because it is beautiful but also because it is durable. But bronze is not the only medium Thomas works in. From his Jonestown, Texas home base overlooking Lake Travis, Thomas has a small foundry and fabrication shop staffed with skilled artisans supervised by his son, Shelby. “We work in numerous mediums,” he said. “We work in stones and a lot of exotic woods – even some composites, like fiberglass. In the last 15 years, we have gotten to where we do a lot of architectural art for high-end houses, expansive commercial sites and commemorative art – like Round Rock and like the five cancer plazas. We participated in the design and production of five of the thirty Cancer Survivor Plazas commissioned by H&R Bloch. These are located near major medical centers and medical research universities throughout the United States.” The Thomas Studio and Foundry also casts bronze sculptures for other artists and participates in designing, sculpting,

casting and fabricating fine public and private art. This includes liturgical art such as the “Welcoming Christ” sculpture commissioned by Saint Mary Our Lady of the Lake Church at Lago Vista, Texas. The church wanted a 1.5 scale bronze that would be big enough to be seen from the approach road. Larger casting and sculpture projects include the five-story "Tree of Life" sculpted brick Cancer Survivor Commemorative Park in Cleveland, Ohio and six full scale cast bronze Longhorn sculptures in Houston, Ft. Worth, El Paso, San Antonio, Abilene and Round Rock. “We got fascinated with sculpture early on,” he said. “It captured my imagination, it is a work of love in a true sense, and it seems to be appreciated by my audience. It’s very gratifying to me to be able to do something that other people think highly of and put in their homes, and pass on down to their kids.” Given the nature and history of the Longhorn trophy steer competition, it will be a few years before this new bronze finds a permanent home, but it will be highly prized while in the possession of each of its temporary custodians.

TLBAA Breed Advisory Committee’s

OCTOBER Herd Management Guide

SPRING Calving:

1. Wean spring born calves that are approximately 7-8 months of age. If you are involved in a performance program, the calves should be weighed at weaning and their weights adjusted to a 205-day equivalent and weaning ratios calculated. 2. Vaccinate newly weaned calves with 7-way Clostridial bacterin (blackleg and malignant edema) as well as IBR-PI3-BVD and deworm to control internal parasites. Cull bull calves should be castrated prior to weaning. 3. Replacement heifers should definitely be vaccinated for blackleg, malignant edema, leptospirosis, IBR and brucellosis, if not already vaccinated. 4. As fall approaches and grass matures, realize that the protein value of your pastures will decrease below levels necessary to satisfy nutritional requirements of gestating females. The feeding of 2 pounds of a 40% crude protein supplement or 4 lbs. of a 20% crude protein supplement will provide additional protein and energy intake above that received from the forage. Heifers will require even more supplemental feed, since they should be gaining approximately one pound per day. 5. Review cow body condition at weaning. Develop a winter feeding program that will insure that cows will maintain an adequate body condition prior to calving. 6. Continue fly and tick control programs. Anaplasmosis problems can continue until frost, so observe cow herd closely for animals losing body condition and appearing anemic. Commercial supplements containing 150 grams of chlortetracycline per 50 lbs. of salt are available. Continuous feeding of the tetracycline medication during the fly season should provide adequate protection against the disease.

dormant range grass according to age and condition of the bulls: (a) feed mature bulls 3-4 pounds of a 40% crude protein range cube daily, (b) feed young bulls 8-10 pounds of a high energy, 20% crude protein cattle cube daily; and (c) supplement additional feed as necessary to keep bulls in good body condition as breeding season approaches.

2. Conduct breeding soundness exams and fertility checks on all bulls prior to the breeding season. 3. The nutrient requirements for energy, protein, minerals and vitamins of lactating females increase substantially. During the first 3-4 months of lactation, a 1000 lb. cow with average milking ability (producing

A Moment in TLBAA History A look back at significant moments throughout the years since the foundation of the TLBAA. Reprinted from August 2007 Trails Magazine

Stars of the Past Will Shine

When fans of the Butler family of Texas Longhorn cattle gather at the end of August in Lockhart, Texas, for the 10th annual sale, they will be rewarded with a very special retrospective of the first nine offerings. The current owners of the surviving high-selling cows from previous years will be invited to bring these famous sale-toppers for display in the Row of Champions. “We are hoping to have nearly all of them return,” said Kaso Kety, one of the sales cohosts. These high-selling individuals include, from the 1998 inaugural sale, Delta Rockette; VJ Hannah, which topped the second sale, has died; sale number 3 will be represented by Dark Star B R3; sale number 4 by Little Ace Tupelo Honey; sale number 5 by Little Ace Missy Mc; sale number 6 by Guinnevere B R3; sale number 7 by SCC Pumpkin Pie; sale number 8 by B R3 Evening Star; and sale number 9 by George W’s Pauline RG 51. The Invitational was a brainstorm of Kaso Kety and Michael McLeod, who thought a sale restricted to straight Butler cattle would be a good way to preserve that popular bloodline. In their view, all the other six families of Texas Longhorns were

The sale is invitational in that the group wants people who will participate…a sale has to have buyers. But the buyer can purchase even a donated lot, or a quilt, or semen. The primary animal in a lot has to be straight Butler, although a cow might be bred to a blend bull or have a blend calf at side. When it comes to taking care of people who attend the sale, the Butler group sets the bar very high. They respect the buying public and the time and effort it takes to get to the auction site. “We try to treat people like kings and queens for the weekend,” says Kety. “If you are a serious Butler breeder, this is where you go to shop. It’s your chance to get other Butler genetics that have never been for sale before, or daughters of very special cows.” “When the sale started, the pressure was really on me to consign something really strong. Delta Rockette was a phenomenal young cow, and I still had her mother. But selling her was a defining moment in getting the Butler sale off with a real bang, and a defining moment for my program as well. I’ve consigned about five head to each of the previous sales, and most of these cows

at 10th Annual Butler Breeders Invitational By: Henry King lost or very few left in a pure form, and they didn’t want that to happen to the Butler family. They contacted other Butler breeders and called a meeting where the idea was discussed. Nine people responded, and it has taken off from there. The group numbers about 200 now, with approximately 75 who consistently consign, attend meetings and volunteer. There have been nine consistently good Butler Breeders Invitational Sales, according to Kety, “…and even our least successful sale was incredibly good. It is unique to have that many outstanding sales in the Longhorn business in a row.” “We were being told 20 years ago,” he continued, “that the Butler cattle were too inbred and you could only outcross them and blend them, but here we are, 20 years later, and tremendous young cattle are continuing to be produced. It is a tremendous feeling to realize the bloodline can sustain itself.”

Rocky Mountain Select Sa l DeLapp Cow Tops Sale Submitted by Stan Searle Enjoying a strong recovery from years of drought conditions that put a damper on Texas Longhorn sales generally, the Rocky Mountain Select recently recorded an average of more than double last year’s results. Longhorn owners from 15 states were on hand for the two-day event which included, for the first time, the Rocky Mountain Winchester Futurity. “The combination of good High selling lot, Kissy Lips by Top Caliber, sold by Brett cattle, adequate rainfall and significantly improved attendance and Darcy DeLapp of Sheridan, WY to Trey Whichard produced a solid market,” according to sale manager Gary Lake. of Sugar Land, TX. “Cattle sold at realistic prices that encouraged new buyers, while providing sellers with margins that will bring them back next year.” Overall sale average, including two bulls, two steers and a special semen lot, was $2,052. Yearling heifers averaged $1,575. The high selling 2013 heifer, WSR Amiga, tracing to Doug Hunt and Bob Loomis breeding and raised by Woodson School Ranch, sold for $2,900 to Pace Cattle Co. of Saratoga Springs, Utah. Two year-old heifers averaged $2,333 with a Pace consignment, PCC Rhinestone, a granddaughter of JP Rio Grande and Farlap Chex bringing $4,000. Tom Matott of Castle Rock, CO, was the buyer. Cows and pairs averaged $2,371 with the high Consignors and buyers of sale champions (l. to r.)

She was consigned by Cliffhanger Genetics of Sheridan, WY, and went to Trey Whichard of Sugar Land, TX. The Rocky Mountain Select, now in its 16th year, has always judged the sale cattle as an added incentive for consigning quality animals. This year the placements were determined by judge Alexandra Dees of CR Ranches of Harper, Oregon. To top the Jr. Heifer class she selected Patriot’s Friend, a granddaughter of Top Caliber and Unlimited consigned by Randy and Marsha Witte of Peyton, CO, who collected a $500 premium in addition to the sale price of $1,800 paid by Searle Ranch. Placing second was Hunts Gunmans Pizzazz, by Clear Win out of a Hunts Demands Respect daughter. Consignor was Doug Hunt of St. George, UT, Champion Sr. Cow, K.C.

In all, $5,000 was paid out on nine consignments. At least a dozen sale consignments had already divided thousands of dollars plus some presentation Henry rifles in the Futurity on the day before the sale. Stan Searle observed that “We have been putting on Texas Longhorn sales in Colorado for 33 years–including some that set records–and I don’t recall ever seeing a group of sellers and buyers who enjoyed an event any more than those joining us this year. He credits “our Sponsors and those who take ‘ownership’ in this important national Longhorn event, year after year–especially those who are willing to put some of their best cattle on the block.” He expresses optimism about “the quality of cattle and the attendance that we will see here next year.” Sponsors of the sale were Brett and Darcy DeLapp of Sheridan, Wyoming; T.J., Tammy and Linda Farnsworth of Mountain Home, Utah; Mark and Stacey Hubbell of Hastings, Michigan; Doug and Dianne Hunt of St. George, UT; Tom Matott of Castle Rock, CO; John and Darlene Nelson of Wellington, CO; Scott Pace of Saratoga Springs, UT, and Randy and Marsha Witte of Peyton, CO.

Williamson County Fair’s ‘Gentle Giant’ Keeps Crowd Coming Back By Brian Wilson, The Tennessean | Photo by John Paripilo, The Tennessean

Williamson County Fair organizers try to offer a ton of fun to those who come out for the nine day event on the edge of Franklin’s city limits. For Lori and Gregg Beeson, that ton may be a bit more concentrated. The Lewisburg ranchers own Hondo’s Warrior, a Texas Longhorn champion steer who has become a mainstay at the Williamson County Fair. They’ve brought the 2,000-pound steer up to the edge of Franklin for each edition of the fair, now in its 10th year at the Ag Expo Park off Peytonsville Road. “Every year, they come back and ask for him,” Beeson said. Each time, Beeson said some people come back to the fair just to see “the gentle giant” with his 100-inch horns. Minutes after the fair opened on Sunday afternoon, Hondo’s War-

rior brought a steady crowd to his pen in the cattle barn. Children rushed to the edge of the steer’s fence and leaned in to peek at him sitting on the other side of the pen. When kids started putting their arms inside that barrier, Beeson set up a rope fence a few feet away from the fence. There was no need to test the 13-year-old steer’s patience or risk someone pulling on his horns, she said. A few feet away at the chicken coops, Brentwood resident Stacy Scarbro was showing her three children some of the animals she was familiar with from her childhood. “I grew up on a farm, so it’s great for the kids to come and see all the animals we used to have,” Scarbro said. Her elementary school-aged kids said the animals they enjoyed were the more exotic ones at the fairgrounds like the llamas and alpacas nearby. Their next stop? The edge of the Longhorn’s fence, of course.

Longhorn Drive Helps Celebrate Beloved West Story & Photo by Dave Bergmeier Courtesy of High Plains Journal A re-creation of the late 1800s—a Longhorn steer cattle drive—and actors who helped make the heartland shine in Hollywood were all part of activities in a southwest Kansas community Aug. 2-3. Dodge City is known for its Western history and draws people from across the country for 10 days during Dodge City Days. A new event included a Longhorn cattle drive to allow people to visualize what people who lived in a cowtown might have witnessed in the late 19th century. From 1875 to 1886, more than 5 million cattle were driven from Texas to Kansas. Longhorns, prominently raised in Texas, became the symbols of those drives. Ryan Deutsch, president of the Wild West Heritage Foundation, Dodge City, Kansas, and an employee of the Boot Hill Casino and Resort, smiled as he watched the large crowd gather before the Aug. 2nd Longhorn drive. He also rode a horse to help guide the Longhorns on a path from Boot Hill Museum and along Wyatt Earp Boulevard before heading southward to the Dodge City Roundup Arena grounds, home to one of the heartland’s largest Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association-sanctioned events. Wes Sander, a family partner with the Chain Ranch near Woodward, Oklahoma, brought the Longhorn steers to the drive, which included Western television stars Buck Taylor and Johnny Crawford, and new stars John Lehr and Nancy Hower to participate in the festivities. “In January we talked through a lot of ideas and big dreams,” Deutsch said. “Now today, it is 70 degrees (Fahrenheit) and I have 30 Longhorns in front of me.” --continued on pg. 75

– HERD HEALTH –

The Nose Knows! Cattle’s Sense of Smell

C

attle have keen senses, and rely upon these to alert them to possible danger or to tell them what they need to know about their world. Their vision and hearing are quite good, but it is their sense of smell that is most important in transmitting crucial information about their surroundings and each other. The sense of smell is more reliable to cattle than is sight or sound. They don’t rely on keen eyesight as much as some other animals do (like a horse, for instance) in detecting danger or other important aspects of their lives; they are not as quick to notice things by sight. But if a strange odor drifts by on the breeze, cattle are instantly aware of it, and suddenly alert. Sometimes you’ll see a whole herd with heads up, sniffing the air in a certain direction. A curious cow, when approaching anything strange (or curious about a person

64

walking through the herd) will not only look at it, but may also try to smell it, to fully determine what or who it is. When a calf is born and gets up to nurse, he learns the smell of his mother. From then on he knows exactly who she is. A blind calf can unerringly pick his own mother from the herd by smell. The cow sniffs her newborn calf and locks that smell into her brain. She can always identify her own calf by smelling it. She knows the sound of her calf’s bawl, and he knows the sound of her voice, but smell is the most reliable clue for definite recognition. Even after they’ve located one another by bawling after being separated, the calf will generally take a quick smell of the cow after running up to her (before he starts nursing), especially if he’s made a mistake in the past in his eagerness and was kicked by an indignant herd member he mistook for his mama. The

cow also checks by smell to make sure it’s her own child before letting him nurse. Smell is the most important social sense in cattle. They use their noses to recognize one another—mother and child, dominant boss cow or subordinate herd member, male and female. Two cows will often sniff each other upon meeting, before deciding whether to fight or just ignore one another. A subordinate cow will gingerly smell another cow and then back off, recognizing a more dominant individual. A bull uses his sense of smell to check for cows in heat. He may show interest in several cows, but a “smell check” tells him more about each cow’s status—whether she is in heat, coming into heat, in a strong heat, or going out of heat. A bull can often tell when a cow is ready to --continued on pg. 66 Texas Longhorn Trails


--continued from pg. 64 come into heat, even up to two days before she does, and may stay with her and guard her from other bulls until she comes into heat so he can breed her. Unlike humans, who smell only through the nose, cattle have two areas of odor reception, the nose and the Jacobsen’s organ, which is situated in the roof of the mouth. When smelling a cow, the bull sniffs and then raises his head with his mouth open, nostrils close to mere slits, tongue flat and upper lip curled back, inhaling the air in such a way that he can sample it by the sensitive roof of the mouth. His raised lip closes off his nose and the air movement makes an audible snuffling sound. In this way he sorts through all the chemical odors put off by the cow, and can detect even the tiny molecules of certain chemical attractants, call pheromones. Animals are constantly giving body signals that tell other animals whether the individual is nervous, afraid, relaxed, angry, in heat, not in heat, etc. These chemicals are present in most body fluids, including sweat. Specific estrous odors put forth when a cow is in heat are released from the body surface (a cow does not have as many sweat glands as a horse or a human, but she still sweats). The bull will also check a cow’s urine for changes that occur during heat. Sense of smell serves cattle well in many aspects of their lives and helps determine what they choose to eat. They are very fussy eaters and rely upon

their noses to tell them if feed is good or bad. Cattle don’t like wet hay or grain and often refuse food that looks perfectly good to us, rejecting it because it smells different. They can smell “good” feed from quite a distance, seeking out the flakes of alfalfa being fed along with grass hay, for instance, or finding the protein blocks or supplement cubes. Smell enables a cow or calf to find the herd after becoming separated from

--continued from pg. 56 I would definitely like to keep in my program. We’ve got people stepping up with the quality of their consignments, and I feel excited about having another good sale.” “I love this bloodline and I wanted to see it survive, and thanks to this group of people, it really will. It is a total group effort, and I want to emphasize that. The sale would never have been anything without the tremendous people in the

Butler Breeders Group.” “One of the markers of this sale’s success is that the bloodline has been saved indefinitely. When we started, there were less than ten straight Butler herds, and now there are over 100 because a lot of blend people also have their little Butler herd.” “When you see these great cows in the Row of Champions, it lets you know the future is bright. Straight Butler cattle are working in these people’s programs,

the others or left behind. A straggler can follow the “hot trail” (wherever the other cattle went) and catch up with the group, even a day later. The laggard will go sniffing along, nose to the ground, following the scent on the trail. Horses rely more on eyesight to keep track of one another, and a mare keeps her foal with her wherever she goes. But cows often leave their young calves to nap while they go to graze and come back later to nurse them, unerringly finding the hiding place by using their sense of smell. As calves get older and more independent, grazing off on their own, cows and calves may get widely separated when in large pastures or rangeland. They rely on sound (bawling) and scent to find each other again. They often go back to where they

were last together (the last nursing) as a meeting place. If the calf has wandered off with other herd members or if the herd has been moved to another pasture or location, mama sniffs the fresh trail and follows it until she catches up and finds them again. Sense of smell is also important to think about if you are trying to bring a newborn calf in from the pasture and have the mother follow. If a calf is born outside in cold weather, and you are trying to get him and mama to the barn, you may have trouble if you put him in the back of your pickup and expect mama to follow. Even if she can see him, she may become confused if she cannot smell him, and may run back to the place she gave birth rather than following you. It always works best to have the calf near ground level—such as on a sled or in a very low cart—where the cow can follow along and smell him (or smell the ground); then she will keep following as you take the calf to the barn. Even if you are carrying him, the cow may not follow unless she can smell the calf; you may have to set him down periodically for her to sniff him, or she may follow right at your heels, smelling the ground as she comes. Odor tends to drop to the ground, and she may be able to get the fresh scent of her calf in your wake as you carry him. When working with cows and their new calves, it always helps to remember that sight is not nearly as important as smell.

and I believe that is what has sold everyone on the Butler bloodline.” “You take a cow like Dark Star – she sells in the Butler sale for $24,000, then after she has proven herself, she sells for over $60,000. Sabrina was young and wasn’t a sale topper when she sold at the Butler sale at around $7,500, but recently she sold for $82,000 at the 2007 Legacy Sale. It’s great to see these great young cows advancing themselves in price.”

10 lbs. of milk daily) requires 11.5 lbs. of energy, 2 lbs. of protein, 0.06 lbs. of calcium, 0.05 lbs. of phosphorus and 36,000 international units of vitamin A per day. Warm season pasture grasses are approaching dormancy and sufficient nutrients must be supplied to the lactating females in the form of protein and/or energy supplements as well as mineral and vitamin mixes to meet their nutrient requirements. If pasture grass is plentiful, but dormant and poor in quality during this time of year, then protein is generally your first concern. A 1000 lb. cow in good body condition with average milking ability should generally be fed at least 1.5 lbs. of crude protein from a protein supplement, depending upon the protein value and availability of the dormant pasture grass. Feeding 3-4 lbs. of a 40% CP supplement, 4-6 lbs. of a 30% CP supplement or 6-8 lbs. of a 20% CP supplement per head per day should be adequate to meet most protein and energy needs. Choice of appropriate supplement (20% CP, 30% CP or 40% CP) should be based upon cheapest source of protein. Price per pound of protein may be determined by dividing the cost per pound of protein supplement by the percentage of crude protein in the supplement. A source of salt as well as a good commercial calcium:phosphorus mineral mix with added Vitamin A should be available on a free choice basis. If your cows are thin in body condition, then feeding supplemental hay plus higher levels of a low crude protein, high energy range cube (20% crude protein) will provide increased intake of vital nutrients. If pasture grass is limited due to overgrazing or poor rainfall during the --continued from pg.55

summer, then energy is your first concern. Feeding a medium (8-10% crude protein) hay free choice plus 2-3 lbs. of a 20% CP supplement daily or approximately 15-20 lbs. of a high quality (15-17% crude protein) hay per head per day will provide an excellent source of energy and protein for the females. If winter pasture is available, then the females should not need additional energy or protein supplementation. Young, lactating females have 20-25% greater supplemental needs than mature cows.

colostrum ceases after 24 hours after birth; therefore, a newborn calf should receive at least 2 quarts (5-6% of birth weight) in first milk within the first 6 hours to insure adequate antibody protection. Commercial sources of colostrum may be purchased or the first milk from other cows may be frozen for later use. Many females, especially first-calf heifers, do not produce sufficient colostrum, and there is no way of knowing how much the calf has nursed. Baby calf scours are typically the result of inadequate consumption of colostrum during the early hours of a calf’s life. Clean calving areas and proper attention to the newborn may reduce exposure to disease organisms and reduce incidence of scouring problems.

IN MEMORIAM Lawrence Dean Goodner June 10, 1947 - August 23, 2014 Lawrence Dean Goodner, 67, of Kuna, Idaho, went to be with the Lord on August 23, 2014 . He spent the day doing what he loved, showing his Texas Longhorns at a TLBAA World Qualifying show where he won several awards. Dean was born June 10th, 1947, in San Diego, California to Allison Morgan and Susan Patterson. Dean grew up in Scappoose, Oregon. He worked on a local ranch during his teenage years, until he joined the United States Navy in 1965. Dean attended the Naval Submarine and Navigation schools in Connecticut, and served in Hawaii and Guam until his honorable discharge in 1970. Following his naval service, Dean was educated at Boise State University, the FBI Academy and the National Fire Academy. Dean then served as a Boise City firefighter, a Boise City fire marshal, and a special investigator for the Idaho Fire Marshal's Office. After 10 years of persuasion, on August 26, 1983, he married Rebecca Sanders in Boise, Idaho, with whom he had two daughters: Rebecca Dein and Casey Lynn. After 17 years with the fire department, Dean decided on a career move to the financial sector and worked as a financial advisor for Principal Financial Group until his death. Aside from his work, Dean had a passion for the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, with excursions spanning the globe. Dean's other "hobby" was raising some of the country's finest Texas Longhorn cattle under his brand Lawrence Morgan Longhorns. He belonged to numerous Longhorn associations, and served as president of the Northwest Longhorn Association for four years. Dean is survived by his wife, Rebecca Lynn, his daughters, Rebecca Dein Venable (of Castle Rock, CO) and Casey Lynn Goodner (of Boise, ID), his grandchildren, Rhys, Rylan and Remedy Venable (all of Castle Rock, CO) and his son-in-law, Roger Venable (of Castle Rock, CO).

We are hoping to see everyone at the upcoming affiliate shows: East Texas State Fair and the Kaufman Police Association Longhorn Show. Keep on showing and see you down the road!

First, the group toured Marquess Arrow Ranch near Ben Wheeler, Texas where gracious host and hostess Ron and Barb Marquess loaded the group onto two golf carts and set out for the pasture. This crash course in Longhorns orientation included a presentation by Ron on the advances in cloning that have taken his and Barb’s program to “the cutting edge.” From the Marquess Arrow Ranch and after a few stops at points and people of interest along the way, the children actually got to work with a pen of heifers near Murchison, Texas owned by the Roddam Family and got their pictures made with a haltered calf complete with brush and show stick. The next day at church, the two families were still aglow with the thrill of the previous day and hope to have other opportunities to interface with Longhorns in the future.

Stars of the Screen Before the drive started, about 20 Longhorns were used in a skit in front of the Boot Hill Museum. Lehr, Crawford and Taylor all played parts in a whimsical look at yesteryear and traded barbs with one another. Robin Jennison, director of Kansas Wildlife Parks and Tourism, donned a cowboy hat and read a proclamation issued from Gov. Sam Brownback for Dodge City Cattle Drive Day. The proclamation noted the contribution of cattle industry to the Kansas’ economy, which remains important today. Jennison watched with a big smile with the skit that ensued. The Western characters enjoyed their time in the heartland. Buck Taylor, who portrayed Newly O’Brien for the final eight seasons on Gunsmoke, which debuted in 1955, was touched by the enthusiasm by those who attended. Taylor, who now lives in Texas, enjoys his trips to Dodge City and promoting the Western lifestyle. “There would be no Gunsmoke without Dodge City,” he said. “I love coming here. Things here are so historical, and I’m grateful from my association with Gunsmoke. Dodge City is still the cowboy capital of the world. I love the West and the way of life it still represents.” Johnny Crawford, who played Mark McCain in The Rifleman, from 1958-1963, paid homage to the West. In the series that featured Chuck Connors as his father, Lucas McCain, the series was about life of a cattle rancher. “I love the history of the ‘Wild West,’” Crawford said and he relished his time with The Riflemen. “The scripts were very inspiring; they talked a lot about family values and protecting our way of life,” Crawford said. “We did it with some October 2014

Wild West Walk of Fame Western significance was also cemented with the four stars’ placement at the Wild West Hall of Fame on the grounds of the Boot Hill Casino and Resort, which is close to a buffalo and Longhorn livestock exhibit that recently opened on the west edge of Dodge City. The television stars applauded the casino and the Wild West Heritage Foundation for their hospitality and their work to preserve Western history. Diverse backgrounds represented the 2014 inductee class. Those tied to professional rodeo included Jule Hazen, a professional steer wrestler from Ashland, Kansas; Boyd Polhamus, Brenham, Texas, a professional rodeo announcer who was the youngest announcer ever selected to work the National Finals Rodeo when he did so at age 25 in 1990; Harry Vold, Pueblo, Colorado, who has one of the largest stock contracting companies in North America; and Justin Rumford, Ponca City, Oklahoma, a two-time PRCA Clown of the Year. Other inductees included the following: Marshal Brent Harris is the heart and soul of Boot Hill and the face of Dodge City. Allen Bailey, a Kansas native, is known as the Dodge City Marshal. He promotes the community with honor and dignity and is a supporter of the arts. Wes Sander, a family partner in the historic Chain Ranch, Woodward, Oklahoma, rescued 44 Longhorns from slaughter in 1997. They are included in parades, and he donated Longhorns to the Boot Hill Casino and Resort exhibit. Dr. R.C. Trotter, a Dodge City native and physician, is known also for his support and leadership as president of the Dodge City Roundup Rodeo.
