EDITOR’S NOTES A HELPING HAND When writing the article about Brett Mitchell losing half of his herd, 10 out of 21 head, of Longhorns to a lightning strike in Katy, Texas; it truly showcased the generosity and willingness to help others that is so abundant among Longhorn breeders, see page 22. In the past few weeks there have been huge natural disasters affecting a large part of our nation and the world. In response to the devastation, a multitude of breeders have coordinated relief efforts, volunteered their time, sent and personally delivered supplies all while lifting prayers for those in harm’s way or who experienced loss. In the November issue, we will delve into some of these amazing stories. On a lighter note, this month we continue our two-part series of Longhorn Women starting on pg. 26. The ladies found in this issue have been in the industry less than ten years, and will serve as a fresh dose of encouragement for those women who have fallen in love with the breed and want to step into the business. There are so many women who could have contributed to this article, and we look forward to talking to them in the future on various topics. The TLBAA Horn Showcase is finally here! We hope you can join us in Lawton, OK October 5th - 7th . If you are not able to make it to Oklahoma be sure to watch the live stream, available for the first time this year! We sincerely appreciate all our sponsors who stepped up to the plate to help make this event a success. You can see a list of these generous supporters on page 21. Texas Longhorn Weekend on January 12-15 will be here before we know it. Take advantage of the opportunity to be a part of the only Longhorn sale held in conjunction with one of the largest stock shows! The Eddie Wood Cowtown Classic Sale will be held on January 13, expose your program to potential new buyers and enjoy a weekend full of family fun. The consignment deadline is October 20. For more information see the inside back cover. Forms are available online at tlbaa.org. Bring your cattle and showman with you to Longhorn Weekend - the Youth and Open Longhorn Shows are open for entries until November 15th. There’s plenty of time to plan a family vacation and be a part of all the activities – the sale, the show, general membership meeting, Board of Directors meeting, Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet, fellowship and more. And if that wasn’t enough, you can take in the sights of the legendary Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. To assist breeders both new and established, we have included the Texas Longhorn Breed Guidelines as published in the TLBAA Handbook. They can be found on pgs. 14-15. For a helpful vaccination schedule see pgs. 34-35. We hope you find both items useful in your Longhorn program. If you have any suggestions, comments, ideas or news you want to share you can email me or give me a call. I am always open to suggestions, story leads and critique. Blessings,

20TH BUTLER BREEDER’S INVITATIONAL SALE RESULTS September 2, 2017 • Lockhart, TX Auctioneer: Joel Lemley Sale Commentator: Kaso Kety Results submitted by Butler Breeders Photos by Butler Breeders & Rick Fritsche

The 20th Anniversary Butler Breeder’s Invitational Sale was held September 2nd, in Lockhart, Texas, despite Harvey having devastated much of the Texas coast and widespread reports of fuel shortages. Besides Texas, consignors and buyers came from Oregon, California, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. Sale participants enjoyed a delicious Black’s BBQ lunch and baked goods, shared camaraderie and saw a tremendous set of Butler cattle. There was good buyer participation in part due to Cattle in Motion online cattle sales which helped mitigate the smaller than normal crowd in attendance at this year’s sale. We would like to say a special thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this year’s sale a success.

WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES… The Longhorn Community Responds! If you were scrolling around Facebook after July 4th you may have seen a disturbing photo. A closer look revealed a photo of 10 dead Longhorn cattle under a tree. They were victims of a lightning strike. The post (minus photo) is shown below.

That last line sums up why Brett Mitchell felt compelled to post it. Mitchell was just two days out of the hospital when the call came the afternoon of July 4th alerting him that 10 of his cattle were dead. Mitchell’s 71 year old father had already been called upon to fill in at work for Mitchell, so he had no choice but to make the two hour drive to Jewett, TX, despite the fact that he was not supposed to be doing anything strenuous at that point. Fortunately, Mitchell’s father, Jim “Big Boss Man”, had managed to get in touch with two men that could meet Mitchell at the property. Mitchell had ground help and he drove the tractor, but the hardest part was the Longhorns that were left all wanted to be where he was and there was no way on the property to separate them from what was going on. After a teary-eyed, stressful day compounded by pain from the physical labor, Mitchell decided to post the photo in a group of longhorn breeders that he turned to often for advice, simply because he was in shock and didn’t know what to do. He posted the photo and comment and went to bed. “I posted only to the group “Longhorn Friends.”, said Mitchell. “I’ve seen many different dis-

cussions on it, from worming cows and pen design to what is this on my cow. There’s tons of Longhorn breeders on it. With me being new, I didn’t know what to do. I was searching for help. One thing I was sure of was I wasn’t going to be judged by posting that photo. If it was just one cow, maybe I wouldn’t have posted it. The only way you can understand what I was going through was to see that picture. It was a sad sight to see. I posted it the same night it happened. I had to stay in a hotel because lighting blew out the a/c in the house. I was alone on July 4th with my family back in Katy and just needed some help. More just in shock. I never expected it to turn out the way it did.” The bitterness of disappointment and grief of loss was real. “It was a lot to deal with,” explained Mithcell. “I spent a lot of time and money on the ones that ended up dying. One of them was my matriarch, I wound up losing the whole blood line. I don’t have anything left of her. She just hangs on the wall now and that’s not what I wanted.” When Mitchell woke up the next morning he was overwhelmed by the positive responses to his post, not only encouragement and prayers but actual offers of replacement animals. “We received the most kind words I’ve seen written on the internet in a long time. Encouraging, helpful, and sympathetic. We were offered cows, heifers, steers and bulls from the best stock. By the end of that week I could have had 25 new Longhorns in my pasture,” he said truly amazed. Mitchell and his father started raising Longhorns in October 2013 when they purchased 3 Longhorn cows with calves off a business associate who had lost his lease. They also purchased ASOCL Incredibul Hotshot. They added their matriarch to the herd in 2015 at the Red McCombs Fiesta Sale. She measured 74 1/4” TTT when she died. Four of the Longhorns killed where her bloodline. The Mitchells had been building towards the breeding program

Longhorn Women: Part 2 There are so many women who have participated in the Longhorn industry through the years . Last month we visted with several women who have been active in the Longhorn industry for many years. This month we visit with newer Longhorn owners to see what drew them in and where they are headed. Looking into the history of women and Longhorns, one may be surprised to learn that there were women who owned Longhorns and participated in cattle drives in the late 1800’s. Many participated along with their husbands, others on their own. While those Longhorns were certainly of a different nature than what we know today, that Western heritage is part of the foundation of the breed today. As the Longhorn came back into it’s own following near extinction, women were even more heavily involved, being enthusiastic owners and promoters of this now iconic and thriving breed. While the years of experience have not accumulated yet for the following ladies, their love for the breed and passion to carry it into the future burns just as bright. For those just starting out or contemplating Longhorns here is some insight from those still in the early stages of the journey.

strong women who made their own choices. And are able to be successful at their programs. What are your program goals? Running the Wichita Fence Company limits my time spent with the Longhorns. I know the basics, but I want to learn more about the breed. I’m still really new to calling the shots in the breeding program. I aim for size and color. I want to breed animals that people want in their programs. Good animals that will work in any program. I enjoy the people, I enjoy the animals. I walk out in the pasture with the young heifers I have at the house and it is so peaceful and beautiful to just walk out in the pasture with them. I can’timagine not having Longhorns. Another goal is to reduce my herd more. I have more now than I did before the reduction sale. Any future projects or events you are participating in? I’m going to a lot of sales, both consigning and buying. I have the Midwest Sale, it will continue and I hope to be more involved with the process this coming year.

Debbie Bowman – End of Trail Ranch

Editor’s note: While Debbie has enjoyed Longhorn ownership for many years and is known by many, it is only recently that she has found herself at the helm of the End of Trail breeding program after losing her husband Mike in 2016. She is the perfect bridge between the long-time participants and those newer to the breed.

How did you first become involved with Longhorns and what is your involvement today? Mike had met a gentleman named Jerome Walburn who had Longhorn cattle. Jerome told Mike about a cattle drive in 1995 and he and Mike went to it. Mike wound up buying six steers. He actually called me wanting to buy another truck and trailer and I told him no – to fight it. So he brought his six steers home and he was hooked. They were beautiful animals, we had them out here and loved looking at them and that was the start of our program. What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out? Have fun. At first, when people look back, they think “why did I buy that animal”. Because there was something about that animal that they liked. Whether it was the color, the horn – something they liked. Pretty soon you get rid of those and you strive toward what you want to do with them. But most of all have fun! Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why? For me personally that would have to be Boomerang C P. He was such a sweetheart. He threw large animals, we liked the bigger animals, he was a show animal from Carla Payne’s program. Went partnered with Ben Gravett to buy him. It wasn’t long before Mike bought Ben out and we owned 100% of Boomerang C P. Boomerang started our program. Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? My top pick would have to be Lorinda Valentine. She knows her breed – knows pedigrees, she knows so much. She was actually more involved through the years then I was because I had a full-time job. If I need to know anything I can call her and she knows who and what I’m talking about. But there are so many other women, too. Ann Gravett is one, and Lisa Lueberring, but I also admire Nancy Dunn, Kathy Kittler, I tend to lean towards the

Lynette Haltom – Haltom Hollar How did you first become involved with Longhorns and what is your involvement today? James is from Texas and he always wanted to own some Texas Longhorns to look at. Since I was from California and have never been around cattle I was not on board. Eventually he convinced me we needed to raise our own meat. I said OK, but no cows with horns and no bulls! Nothing happened with that endeavor until by chance I ordered a wood chopping block off the internet. Just so happened I found it on the Longhorns Head To Tails Store (Dickinson Cattle Company). I spoke with Linda while ordering and she mentioned that they raised Texas Longhorns. I told her I was afraid of cattle, but my husband wanted some. She convinced me that I would love the gentle nature of longhorns. When James came home I told him we were getting Texas Longhorns and he about fell down. I was so enthusiastic about them that in two weeks we had five. A couple of cows had colored up bull calves and we thought we had hit the jackpot…that’s how little we knew at the time. By chance we talked to Terry King and he told us about the Southeastern Winchester Futurity. We entered those two bulls and took 5th and 7th place (I screamed so loud that you would have thought I won first place). I was hooked and had to win one of those rifles. We sold everything and started over. We purchased Bubba Tuff Chex from Bob Loomis and bought some better cows. The next year we entered Bubba Tuff Chex and he won Grand Champion Bull. We also entered a heifer and she won first place as well. We came home with two rifles and some money. Since then we have been very involved with the Southeastern Winchester Futurity. James calls people from around the country to invite them to attend and I do the program. We also attend and sponsor other events as the budget allows. Many people know me as the “jelly lady” because I hand out jam to people who attend the Southeastern Winchester Futurity. I’ve “officially

retired” from doing that, but if you visit us you can pick your favorite flavors. What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out? Before we give advice to new breeders we ask what they want to accomplish with them. We also ask what type of longhorns they visually like to look at. It varies with every person and the nice thing about Texas Longhorns is that there is something for everyone. We always tell them to buy the best they can afford in the beginning. We share our experience of starting over and how it delayed us in accomplishing our goals. Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why? My favorite bull of all time is Bubba Tuff Chex. I say this because of how he moved our breeding forward so fast. Every single calf he’s produced for us is leaps and bounds better than their dam in conformation, color and horn. He’s so consistent that we will continue to A.I. him for years to come. My favorite cow is Horseshoe J Delicious. She’s our ideal Texas Longhorn with over 86” TTT of beautiful twisty horns. Another reason is how we got her. I had a running joke with Joe Valentine that I had to have this cow no matter how old she was when he sold her. At the time she wasn’t for sale but he promised me he wouldn’t sell her to anyone else. Just two weeks before Joe passed he and Lorinda called and asked if we wanted to buy her. We were ecstatic at the opportunity and made arrangements to buy her. We didn’t know Joe was sick and making final arrangements when he called. He kept his promise to me and the thought still brings tears to my eyes. Joe and Lorinda Valentine will hold a special place in our hearts forever. Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? As far as women pioneers in the industry I come back Lorinda Valentine. Her knowledge about some of the older great longhorn bulls and cows comes from her and Joe owning them or seeing them in person. She’s been involved in the industry for decades and continues to this day with the Fort Worth Stockyards Sale and the Hudson-Valentine Sale. She spends countless hours and I’m sure some sleepless nights putting on these elite events. We’re grateful to have her because these events keep the breed exciting and exposes new people to the wonderful world of longhorns. What are your program goals? Our program goals are to breed visually beautiful Texas Longhorns with top-of-the-line genetics. They need good bodies and bone structure, flashy colors, a beautiful lateral twist with respectable tip-to-tip and of course a gentle nature. The mamma cows must have good udders and milk production and the bulls must have impeccable pedigrees, color and “the look”. We continually stack pedigrees to create longhorns people want. Our logo “Genetics To Build Dreams On” comes to life when I post each new generation on our Hired Hand website. If you get time visit us at www.haltomhollar.com. The future looks bright for Haltom Hollar Ranch!

The future looks bright for Haltom Hollar Ranch! What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out? Buy what makes you happy.  Know that your goals may change as you develop your herd.  Study pedigrees and genetic traits and develop what works for you.  Ask questions!!!!  Longhorn breeders LOVE to talk longhorns! Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why?   Although there are so many influential longhorns, I would probably say Hunts Commands Respect.   He was quite popular at the time we began raising longhorns and he seemed to take the breed to the next level with his progeny.  His bloodline is still very influential today.  Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? I would have to say that Dora Thompson was an inspiration for me.  She runs such a large and beautiful operation and I think she knows every single cow and calf and pedigree of every one of her animals!   Her knowledge is priceless and love of the breed are evident in her conversation.  What are your program goals? Our program goals are to breed consistent, quality animals that honor the breed guidelines and to educate people about this wonderful breed. Any future projects or events you are participating in? I hope to spend more time helping  with my longhorn affiliate group, the South Texas Longhorn Association in the coming year. I will be attending the Horn Showcase in Lawton, OK.   

Debbie Witham – Dramcatcher Ranch How did you first become involved with Longhorns and what is your involvement today? I was begrudgingly dragged into ownership in the spirit of the almighty ag exemption. But when the first few arrived and after attending my first Longhorn event became immediately endeared. What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out? Wait! Wait! Wait! Talk to many experienced mentors before you purchase. Research the animal that caught your eye extensively. Have a clear, substantive vision of your program and business objectives. Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why? Fifty-fifty. Not because he’s trendy but rather that he demonstrably improves offspring. Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? Cindy Bolen, her impeccable knowledge of breed evaluation and hands on herd management. Her approachability and unfailing willingness to indiscriminately mentor. Nancy Dunn, for pioneering innovative marketing. Her willing openness to mentor indiscriminately and approachability.  What are your program goals? To breed exquisite animals that represent the best qualities of the breed. Any future projects or events you are participating in? Attending as many events as schedule permits.

Feature Lisa K. Luebbering - Luebbering How did you first become involved with Longhorns and what is your involvement today? In 2011, my late husband, Glenn Luebbering, decided that we needed to get in farming and raise cattle in addition to our existing business, PEP Waterproofing LLC, based in Eldon MO. After an extensive research and many visits/phone calls with Oren O’Dell, Rebecca Rhodes and Bill Le’An, he selected longhorn cattle… my response was “Huh, why?” but that’s beside the point lol!! In July of 2011 we made our first purchases.  Being only into the longhorns nearly 9 mos, on April 26, 2012 my husband was killed in a farm accident on our farm. Immediately after this traumatic incident in my life, my dad approached me and said I needed to sell the cattle.  My response to him was that I was not going to make a decision right away, this made his furious.  So as time went by, my love for the longhorns grew!  I had no knowledge or back ground in the cattle business but I knew I could do this, not only for me but for my children to carry on the legacy that their daddy intended. I had my trial and errors over the first few years as I was focused on me, my children and business- the cattle just existed.  Finally, in 2014 I gained my momentum and decided to grow my longhorn business and created a name for myself in the industry. I could not have done this without the guidance, support and friendship of my longhorn friends!! What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out?  My suggestion to them would be is find a few mentors that has been in the industry for quite some time. Understand what and why you are buying an animal…know what you got before

they invest. I would encourage them to study the history of longhorn industry and “successful” pedigrees that help the legends along the way. As a new breeder for myself, I love the longhorns but the people having the same likes, interests, passion and desire to succeed…make it for me, so I would let them know that they made a very good choice of breed. Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why? JP Rio Grande. I like this bull because he has been proven to be the most consist producing bull in the industry. He has a flashy confirmation, color and overall well put together bull.  Not to mention, any bloodline of his in your herd makes you money!!! Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? To be honest, I admire a lot of the ladies in the industry but Nancy Dunn would be the “pioneer” of my choice.  Nancy has a solid background in the cattle industry and this allows her to bring her knowledge to the table and just by looking her program says it all.  I admire Nancy for her personality, desire to beat the “guy” breeders, and dedication to the industry.  I was very pleased when she received the “Breeder of the Year” award in 2016!! What are your program goals? My goals,   like most, is to successfully have that one offspring that hits off the charts and I will accomplish that one day!! I knew immediately in the start of 2016 I had the wrong cows in my program and my heart just sunk, so I quickly removed them and purchased what I knew I needed to start my new program. I also learned that AI’g was the way to go, so I took a course at the local university to learn how and started buying semen from renowned bulls immediately…so now the adrenalin is on for 2017!!!   Also, my desire is to encourage young breeders to carry on this great industry for years to come.  If my intentions go according to plan, my goal is to establish a program for local youth or with FFA programs to come help me on my farm and get a better understanding of this great breed and its intentions on a local basis. Any future projects or events you are participating in? I sponsor many events although due to my schedule I am unable to attend what I would like to. I will be attending the LWC in Oklahoma City and a judge at the HSC in Lawton with my beautiful black bull – WS Midnight Weapon in Bull Alley.

Sondra West-Moore Westhaven Longhorn Ranch How did you first become involved with Longhorns and what is your involvement today? My father Fraser West was a Colonel in the Marines Corp and a real cowboy raised in Nevada. He loved to team rope, so growing up, we always had roping stock on the ranch. Dad had so much fun practicing in our home arena. I think his sense of both competition and fun wore off on me as I took 4-H very seriously when I was little. Later, when he and my mother bought Westhaven Ranch in 1973, my Dad started breeding registered Texas Longhorns, which he loved to show all over 6 states. The TLBAA honoured him in 1997 with the Elmer Parker Award, which he appreciated very much. Many folks still remember his famous trophy steer John C. Fremont with his 86” horns walking in the parade through the streets of downtown Sacramento. When my Dad passed in 2015, my husband John Moore, my mother Teddy and I wanted to continue his legacy, so we looked around and began bringing important Longhorn genetics into our herd, originating from wonderful breeders like Darol Dickinson, Bob Loomis, Jimmy Jones, Daniel Fey, Alexa

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


Dees and Dora Thompson, just to name just a few. I am now the President of the California Association of Texas Longhorn breeders (CATL) and happy to be interacting with breeders all over. Just love the stories. What advice would you give to new breeders just starting out? Study the bloodlines, but buy only what you really like to look at, as hopefully you will spend a lot of time with them. Soundness, overall balance in conformation and disposition really matter, especially in a bull, but cows pass attitudes down as well as other characteristics. Even though Longhorns can get by on less feed than other breeds, don’t neglect minerals and good nutrition. Our animals need strong bones to live healthy long lives.

breeders come up and succeed. I want to convince commercial operators to think about Longhorn genetics in their herds once again, to help the health and sustainability of our nation’s beef. Any future projects or events you are participating in? At Westhaven Ranch, we will be participating in the 2017 Horn Showcase for the first time in a long time! We are very excited not just for the competition, but also to have a chance to meet and mingle with other breeders when we attend the event in Oklahoma. Also, CATL is planning our first Futurity in 2018, and we are also working on a Youth outreach program to help bring attention (and kids) to the joys of raising Texas Longhorns here in California.

Longhorn Women Part I can be found in September 2017 Trails.

Who is you favorite cow or bull of all time? Why? My favorite cow is my Dad’s old grandchampion #217, who was the first cow I ever respected and loved. She got to me one year when her milk came in too fast, and she was shaking all over, nursing her little guy, leaning against a fence. If she was going to die, she was going to nurse till him to the end! We treated her, and she is now 18 years old, on her 17th calf, and has produced many that echo her deep wine red color, with wide lateral but super twisty horns. My favorite bull is a tough one, as I actually day-dream about our Drag Iron son Rusty, who is simply the most gorgeous and sweet tempered young brindle bull ever, and my husband gets a little jealous! But my favorite has to be Tuff “Tuffy” Test, our 3-year old Cowboy Tuff Chex son, who is a gentleman and a scholar. He has bred dozens of cows successfully, by being alert and sticking to the side of each cow who is ready, one at a time, steadfastly with his big gentle love. He also likes to sing sweetly to the other breeding pastures as well, just in case he can convince a cute heifer to come over to his area.

Who do you see as the Women pioneers of the breed and why? As I am new (or as one TLBAA member said, you are “old-new” due to my Dad), I am in awe of Dora Thompson and Alex Dees in particular, and have full appreciation for their programs.

What are your program goals? I want to produce healthy, deep bodied and dense-boned livestock that are balanced, splendidly colourful and have the heft to both support big horns and to have long healthy lives.

The Source Showmanship Clinic & Sale 2017 Is a Wrap Submitted by Sale Hosts Chris Lindsey & Ryan Culpepper

For the second year in a row The Source – Showmanship Clinic and Show Calf Sale was the summer place to be for the Texas Longhorn show scene. There were more than 85 participants, including 25 brand new exhibitors and 25 with only 1 or 2 years of experience. Friday night featured the Texas Longhorn family getting together for some fun and fellowship sponsored by Champion Longhorns. Saturday was the big day for the all in attendance. The day started with showmanship instructors Jimmie Gee, Shelby Rod, Chris Schaper, and John T. Baker sharing their expertise and wisdom with clinic participants ranging from 6 years to 60 years old. Karen Culpepper and Michelle Casella did a great job of getting all the clinic participants registered and lined up for the designated groups. After the best barbecue anywhere provided by Chris & Brandi Lindsey and their Hog Heaven BBQ, and heat-beating sno-cones provided by Devin Culpepper and Culpepper Leather, the judges continued sharing their knowledge during the showmanship clinic. The afternoon brought the main event, The Source – Show Calf Sale. With Texas Longhorn legends Jim Curry (auctioneer) and Larry Barker (pedigrees) on the block and ringmen John Oliver and Chris Schaper catching bids, the sale started off with a bang. The first animal sent through the ring by back crew coordinator James Culpepper was Lot 8 Lady Gaga 10/6. Consigned by Rusty & Julie Morgan, The Cattlerack Ranch, Lady Gaga was the high selling lot, bought by Joe & Misty Tucker, Circle T Longhorns. We want to thank Pam Dodson for her efficiency and professionalism in the sale office, Laura Standley for her presence and photos, and Kelsie McGilvray of Triple Ten Livestock Media for being on hand capturing photos of the day. The weekend would not have been made possible without corporate sponsor Morgan Livestock Equipment for supplying the sale cattle pens, and assisting with event set up. Also, to a sincere thank you to sponsors Bella Rio Ranch and Tanner Longhorns for their continued support, as well as Infinity Ranch Land & Cattle, Brittany Cook and Clint & Wendy Burgess, for providing the sound system for weekend. Thank you to everyone who attended, participated, volunteered, and supported us.

Herd Health

By Dr. Bob Kropp

Vaccination Guidelines For the Registered Texas Longhorn Program A proper health program for your registered Texas Longhorn program should be partnership between your local veterinarian and yourself. Understanding the health requirements for entrance into most shows, sales and other events is critical so that necessary health papers can be generated in a timely manner. Since the size and scope of most Texas Longhorn programs vary substantially, there is no “one health and vaccination program that fits all”, but the herd health program that each Texas Longhorn breeder utilizes should be “tailor made” to fit the individual needs of the program. An outstanding working relationship with your local veterinarian is essential for your herd health program to be a success. Proper immunization is necessary to limit and possibly prevent common diseases of cattle, such as Clostridial (Blackleg, Maglinant edema and Entertoxemia) infections, Leptospirosis, Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) virous, Parainfluenza-3 (PI3) virus, Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) virus, Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus (BRSV) and pneumonia resulting form pasteurella.

Killed (Inactivated) vaccines (KV) vs. Modified-Live vaccines (MLV) The most common vaccines on the market are either killed or modified-live vaccines. Killed virus (KV) - Most killed vaccines are provided in a liquid form that is ready for immediate use. The viruses in this vaccine have been killed, so when they are injected into an animal the dead virus stimulates an immune response. There is little risk for killed vaccine to cause disease. The vaccine contains an adjuvant which helps the dead viral particles to cause an immune reaction. Killed vaccines can be given to pregnant cows. Killed vaccine requires two doses to provide protection. Modified Live Virus vaccine (MLV) - Modified-live vaccines usually come in box with a dry powder form in a bottle that must be reconstituted prior to use. Another bottle containing the reconstitution agent accompanies the bottle of the dry powder The reconstitution agent must be mixed with the dry powder prior to injection into the animal. These vaccines should be used within a few hours after reconstitution and they are very sensitive to heat and sunlight and should be handled appropriately. The viruses have been modified so that when the vaccine is injected into the animal they replicate as if they were the regular virus except they cannot cause disease. In this manner the immune response is similar to infection by the virus. MLV vaccine generally should not be used in pregnant animals unless you have followed the label of the vaccine you are using. MLV vaccines may provide protection with one dose but generally two doses are recommended. It is important that all vaccines are handled and 34 | October 2017

stored properly to maintain their potency. ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE CAREFULLY. A vaccination schedule for various classes of animals on your farm follows. It is very important that you consult with your local veterinarian on terms of specific vaccinations that should be administered to your herd.

VACCINATION SCHEDULE PRE-WEANING Vaccinate all calves at approximately 2-4 months of age with two vaccinations • Vaccinate for Blackleg, Malignant Edema and Enterotoxemia by using a 7-way Clostridium Chauvoei-Septicum-Novyi-Sordellii-Perfringens Types C & D Bacterin-Toxoid. • Vaccinate for Leptospirosis by using a 5-way Leptospira Canicola-Grippotyphosa-Hardjo-Icterohaemorrhagiae-Pomona Bacterin Vaccinate all calves to be retained past wean-ing (replacement heifers, bull calves, steers) at approximately 2-4 weeks prior to weaning with the following vaccinations: • Provide a Clostridial booster by revaccinating using a 7-way Clostridium Chauvoei-SepticumNovyi-Sordellii-Perfringens Types C & D BacterinToxoid • Protection against respiratory diseases and a booster for Leptospirosis can be provided by vaccinating with an IBR-BVD-PI3-BRSV (KILLED)Lepto5 Vaccine. Make sure that the vaccine is recommended for nursing calves. • A Pasteurella haemolytica toxoid vaccination is also recommended, especially if your herd has experienced significant respiratory issues.

AT WEANING OF CALVES FROM DAMS (6-8 months of age) Vaccinate all calves retained past weaning (replacement heifers, bull calves, steers) with the following vaccinations: • Provide an additional Clostridial booster by revaccinating using a 7-way Clostridium ChauvoeiSepticum-Novyi-Sordellii-Perfringens Types C & D Bacterin-Toxoid • Booster protection against respiratory diseases and an additional booster for Leptospirosis can be provided by vaccinating with an IBR-BVD-PI3-BRSV (Modified Live Virus)-Lepto5 Vaccine. Make sure that the vaccine is recommended for non-nursing calves. DO NOT ALLOW CALVES TO RETURN TO THEIR DAMS AFTER VACCINATION WITH A MLV VACCINE DUE TO THE POTENTIAL FOR ABORTIONS TO OCCUR DUE TO THE TRANSMISSION

TEXAS LONGHORN TRAILS


Herd Health OF THE BVIRUS FROM CALF TO DAM VIA NURSING. • A Pasteurella haemolytica toxoid booster vaccination should be provided. • Calfhood vaccination of replacement heifers with strain 51 Brucella abortus vaccine is recommended. Many sales require heifers to OCV (OFFICIAL CALFHOOD VACCINATED) to be transported across state lines.

AT ONE YEAR OF AGE Vaccinate all one year old cattle (replacement heifers, bull calves, steers) with the following vaccinations: • Provide an additional Clostridal booster by revaccinating using a 7-way Clostridium ChauvoeiSepticum-Novyi-Sordellii-Perfringens Types C & D Bacterin-Toxoid • Booster protection against respiratory diseases and an additional booster for Leptospirosis can be provided by vaccinating with an IBR-BVD-PI3-BRSV (Modified Live Virus) Vaccine using Lepto 5 Vaccine as a diluent. • If females are moved in and out of the herd on a frequent basis and the bulls being used as service sires are non-virgin bulls, it is recommended that the yearling heifers and yearling bull calves be vaccinated for Vibriosis by using a Campylobacter Fetus vaccine. Vibrio and Lepto-5 can be purchased as one vaccine. Vibrio vaccine should be adminis-

tered at least 30 days prior to the breeding season because of potential abortion problems.

COWHERD & HERD BULLS Vaccinate all cows and herd bulls annually with the following vaccinations: • Vaccinate for Leptospirosis by using a 5-way Leptospira Canicola-Grippotyphosa-Hardjo-Icterohaemorrhagiae-Pomona Bacterin • If cows are moved in and out of the herd on a frequent basis and the bulls being used as service sires are non-virgin bulls, it is recommended that the cowherd be vaccinated for Vibriosis by using a Campylobacter Fetus vaccine. Vibrio and Lepto-5 can be purchased as one vaccine, but must be administered after calving and at least 30 days before breeding because of potential abortion problems.

SUMMARY It is important that you and your veterinarian develop a vaccination program tailored to fit the needs of the herd and that it is implemented within current management practices. Vaccine selection and proper vaccine equipment handling are only two components of a wellstructured herd health program. If there is an absence of proper biosecurity practices, proper nutrition and proper management, any well planned vaccination program may be ineffective. Always include your local veterinarian in preventative herd health decisions and always read and adhere to product instructions and precautions.

Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow

President’s Message Dear TLBT Members, I am ecstatic to say that the Texas Longhorn show season is finally here! The TLBT officer team was able to have their leadership camp on the 5th & 6th of August in Glen Rose at the Riverbend Retreat Center. We discussed and decided on several topics including a service project and multiple fundraisers we hope to accomplish during the next year. For our service project, we decided to donate money earned by certain fundraisers to the Warrior and Family Support Center in San Antonio, Texas. The fundraisers we decided on highlight a TLBT shirt that we will sell spots, for people to purchase and place their brands. We will auction three larger spots at the Fort Worth Stockyards Sale, and sell the rest of the spots at a booth at the sale. During our time away from our meetings and parliamentary procedure, we had time to participate in a challenge course. Here we learned all about communication and teamwork through many difficult obstacles. We wrapped up the camp knowing more about each other and also ourselves. I hope you all are doing well and am excited to see all of you at the upcoming shows!

Matthew Wallace OFFICER SPOTLIGHT:

ALLISON LOWRIE

TLBT Office: Intermediate Director Age: 11 1.)Why did you join TLBT? Because I wanted to get more involved in showing Longhorns 2.)What is your favorite Longhorn show, and why?

Competing with my brother in the same division. 7.) What is your favorite movie? Favorite movie is The Secret Life of Pets 8.) Do you enjoy showing Longhorns and why? Duh!!! I love showing Longhorns! There is such an amazing bond with these large animals. 9.) What person has influenced you the most? My brother, Jacob. Shhh, don’t tell him that.

10.) If you were going to be turned into a mythical creature, what would you want to be? A unicorn... that’s pretty close to a Longhorn, right? 11.) What is your favorite quote? Why? “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you do, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. Maya Angelou The Moore family (Triple T Longhorn Ranch) let me show one of their cows when I first started. They have trusted me with their cow for over 2 years now. It makes me feel really good that they trusted me and believed in me. Someday, I hope to return the favor to someone just starting out. 12.) What is your favorite season? Why? I love Fall. It’s cooler weather and there’s a lot of cow shows! 13.) What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to work with animals, maybe marine biology or studying animal behaviors. 14.) What is the best part about being a TLBT member? The best part of TLBT is interacting with other breeders and families that share our passion for Longhorns. 15.) What advice would you give a newcomer to TLBT? Watch all the showmanship classes. Pay attention to the kids that win and try to figure out what they’re doing different than you. You can learn a lot by watching.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL DURING THE FORT WORTH STOCK SHOW & RODEO LONGHORN SHOWS JANUARY 15-16, 2017 - PART OF TEXAS LONGHORN WEEKEND!
