EDITOR’S NOTES

Get involved As you turn the pages of this issue, it is evident there are a multitude of ways to interact with others in the Longhorn industry. Beginning with the World Show wrap-up and ending with a full calendar of events, August Trails gives you plenty of avenues to explore. The Texas Longhorn Expo, featuring the TLBT National Youth Show and the TLBAA World Show, is a culmination of effort put in at affiliate shows throughout the year. No matter where you live, a qualifying show is probably within hauling distance. As you can see by the results pages inside, these shows offer outstanding opportunities for youth to develop important life skills and for adults to show off their breeding programs while enjoying friendly competition. Another great opportunity to participate, or simply to meet some great people, is the TLBAA Horn Showcase. It will include not only measuring; but also a sale, futurity, seminars, bull alley, embryo alley and so much more. Complete information about the event is on pgs. 36-42. Take a look and we hope to see you in Lawton, OK! Prefer to not haul your animals anywhere but still be involved? Turn to page 47 to see criteria to nominate fellow breeders for the TLBAA Special Awards presented evey year during Texas Longhorn Weekend at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. Everyone knows someone who has stepped up and served in the industry that should be recognized for their efforts and accomplishments. If you know someone that has made a huge lifetime commitment or change in the industry, go further and nominate them for the Texas Longhorn Hall of Fame. See information on pg. 62 on how to submit your recommendation. There are a variety of Longhorn sales coming this fall. If you’re in the market to buy a Longhorn, you’re in luck. Take a look at the upcoming sales throughout the magazine and put the dates on your calendar. There will be something for everyone available at the auctions this fall. Don’t skip the sales just because you don’t think you can purchase an animal or don’t have one to consign. The sales are a terrific place to meet people who share your passion and to learn from those whose programs you admire. If you are building a program and plan to consign in the future, nothing beats attending a sale for feeling the pulse of the industry. So, what are you waiting for? Check our full calendar on pg. 64 and plan to join in some events in the coming months. We hope to see you soon!

Longhorn Expo Wrap-Up

TLBAA World Show & National TLBT Youth Show

Four hundred and twenty-nine entries made their appearance at the 29th Longhorn Expo during June 8-12, 2016 held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center. The Longhorn Expo featured the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America's World Show and the National Texas Longhorn Breeders of Tomorrow's Youth Show. In order to particpate, exhibitors must have received a qualifying invitation from participating in a World Qualifying show throughout the 2015-2016 show year. This year the Longhorn Expo was host to exhibitors from all over the United States including, Nebraska, Wyoming, Mississippi, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas. Even though the Texas heat decided to join the party it competed at the banquet with former TLBT member Luke Erwin and his band. Erwin won by keeping the dance floor full throughout the night after the banquet which was attended by 350.

YOUTH

ACQUIRING POINTS FOR TLBT SHOWS

The TLBT Hall of Fame winners are determined by a system of awarding points for participation in shows and other approved activities throughout a show year. The youth with the highest number of points in their division at the end of the World Show for that season is the winner. Points earned at the World Show are double the amounts listed below. The four divisions are determined by age and include Junior (7-9), Intermediate (10-12), Teen (13-15) and Senior (16-19). Throughout the year the TLBT page of the TLBAA website contains updates on point standings for youth to keep track of what they’ve accomplished. Division winners receive a donated heifer, 2nd through 10th place receive recognition for their achievement. The results online list points earned by every show participant. Listed below are the various activities for which points are earned and how many points are awarded for each: TLBT SHOW PARTICIPATION: 20 POINTS NUMBER OF TIMES IN THE RING: 25 POINTS (FOR EVERY TIME JUDGED). This includes Jr. Champion classes, Senior Champion classes, etc. Every TLBT member that goes back into the ring to be judged for Jr. Champion (for example), receives 25 points. The winner of the Jr. Champion class determines the additional TLBT member that gets to compete for Reserve Champion along side all remaining Jr. Champion competitors.

EXAMPLE

JR CHAMPION Joe Smith….......................25 pts Bob Williams….................25pts Frank Roberts (winner)…25pts RESERVE CHAMPION Joe Smith (winner)….......no additional points Bob Williams…..................no additional points Sarah Cook…................................................25 pts (second place winner in Frank Robert’s class)

Tarah Moore: Reaching Goals The drive to win her TLBT Hall of Fame division 12 straight years By Myra Basham “Dad, I got this. I don’t need you in the ring.” Thus began the show seasons leading to a TLBT Hall of Fame first. Tarah Moore, daughter of Trigg and Traci Moore, Hico, TX, went on from that moment to be the first youth to win her division in the TLBT Hall of Fame for 12 straight years. Tarah first entered the ring as a Pee Wee at three years old. She was six when she started showing as a Junior. “When it was time to go in without Dad, and she

32 | August 2016

was able to go in the show ring more than just one time, she was hooked,” said Traci. Her first Hall of Fame win was in 2005 at age 7. When she went to pick up that first donated heifer she told her parents that she wanted to win every year. “I don’t remember having a particular drive to win points at that young of an age,” said Tarah. “My father hauled and fitted for other breeders, so we were already going to all the shows. I had my first calf, Tri W Tarah’s Liberty, donated by Wes Hill, and in the Junior Division, the points contest isn’t as competitive.” The idea of goal setting and dedicating herself to winning came around age nine or ten for Tarah. Once that goal entered her mind, she became dedicated to it. “I think it is so important for kids of any age to have goals, and to have the mindset to see them through.” Her parents agree that once she became focused on showing, it took precedence over all other activities. “She was very naturally driven,” ex-

plained Trigg. “It dictated what school activities she could be in and everything outside of school.” Traci added, “If you ever asked Tarah if she wanted to miss a couple of shows to rest or go do other activities, we always got the very adamant answer, NO!” They both agree that encouraging and enabling Tarah required a total family commitment. It is something that Tarah is very appreciative of. “My parents’ support was unwavering and they never hesitated to do what it took to achieve my goals, both in the TLBT and in other areas.” stated Tarah. She also sees winning the TLBT Hall of Fame each year as an honor. “The way I see it, anyone can get a good calf and win big with it throughout the year. However, to win points, you have to have several good calves, and also be good in Showmanship, participate as an officer or director, and do other activities. Hall of Fame is about being an all-around TLBT member…” The Moores all agree that the benefits of participating are huge no matter how many points you are able to obtain. Trigg and Traci have both noted that through the years Tarah developed a strong work ethic, leadership skills, compassion, confidence and public speaking skills. Those skills were developed in the ring and through taking part in other TLBT activities. One area of involvement was on the TLBT Board of Directors. Tarah served for 12 years, two of those years as the TLBT President. “She grew within the TLBT Board of Directors and became not only a good leader, but a great team player,” observed Traci. The rewards for participation go far beyond being

number one in the point race. For Tarah, as long as you set a goal and obtain it you have been successful. “Maybe you’re not the kind of person that wants 10 calves on your show string,” explains Tarah. “You might see more value in just having one or two calves, and pouring all of your energy into them, and that’s great! Whatever your focus is, just make sure to find a target to aim for. This could be something like winning x number of showmanship classes, getting on the TLBT board, or maybe it has nothing to do with Longhorns at all. The most important thing to remember is that the key to success is to be involved and the best way to get involved is to set goals.” Traci agrees that participation is the key. “I highly encourage all TLBT youth to participate in as many activities as possible. It helps you get to know your fellow exhibitors and helps you build lifelong friendships. Competition is the fun. Friendships are the reward!”

IN MEMORIAM

HC Carter

July 17, 1933 - June 26, 2016 HC Carter, 82, passed away in his sleep and slipped into eternal life with the Lord on Sunday Eve the 26th of June 2016. He was born July 17, 1933 in Mexia, Texas. HC worked as a Journeyman Carpenter during his high school and college years. He attended San Angelo State on a Rodeo Scholarship and continued his education in the School of Architecture at UT. One summer day while framing a home, HC saw a salesman drive up in an air-conditioned car. He immediately quit his job and became a salesman! That’s when Carter discovered the world of real estate. In the early 60’s he established Carter Homes, building and selling homes in the Crestview, Brentwood, Allandale, and Balcones West neighborhoods. In the 70’s he was a founding partner in Paragon Properties, a commercial brokerage firm, whose clients included Tracor, Westinghouse, Texas Instruments, and McNeil Labs. His development com-

pany, Carter Investments, built or developed the 26 Doors shopping center, over 2,500 apartment units, and other office, retail and specialty projects. HC made a contribution of his time and talent serving on many boards – Brackenridge Hospital, The Paramount Theatre, UT School of Architecture, and he was a founding member of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association. His true passion was ranching and the history of Texas. While James Michener was gathering information for his epic novel “Texas”, he spent many hours with HC discussing trail drives and Texas history on HC’s front porch in Dripping Springs. Mr. Michener gave HC more acknowledgements in his book “Texas” than any other sources. Michener told HC...”Carter, if this books a failure, it’s your fault. I’ve never given this many acknowledgements to anyone”. HC moved to his Dripping Springs ranch in 1989 where he continued developing real estate and of course; raising Longhorn Cattle. The perfect day for HC was attending a cattle sale in the morning and a black tie event that evening. He was truly a Renaissance man! He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Lynnda, his son Mike and wife Marsha Carter, his son Scott Carter and his partner Mary Beth and his daughter Ashleigh Allen; his brother Marcus Dodson; and his sisters Sandra Brooks and her husband Lou, his sister Jo Coburn and her husband Doug. Also surviving are his grandchildren Jennifer, Lyles, Chadwick, Kristi, and Chuck, along with numerous nieces and nephews. A special love and thank you go to their dear friends Bill and Jan Bright. In celebration of HC’s life, a memorial service was held at 2:00 on Thursday, July 7, at Riverbend Church, Smith Chapel. In lieu of flowers, a scholarship fund in HC’s memory has been created for the Dripping Springs Ag Boosters. Please mail checks to PO Box 1008 Dripping Springs, Texas 78620. “See you down the trail, Pardner.....”

Product Spotlight

By Lindsay Maher

Safety Zone Calf Catcher Work Smarter Do you dread calving season? Tired of wrestling calves to the ground and fighting off protective mother cows? With Safety Zone’s Calf Catcher one person can now easily process calves with out all the stress. Allen Lippert a calf catcher owner in Kentucky states, “No more lifting calves to get them to shelter and no more having to wait on anyone.” Cleverly Designed Safety is at the heart of the product’s mission, as well as the ease of use, which is achieved with the operator remaining safe in the catcher at all times. The Safety Zone Calf Catcher consists of a welded steel cage with a walk-thru operator opening, calf holder, and back gate release. With the unit mounted to an ATV or UTV the operator quietly approaches the calf with the front gate open. Once the calf is in place the spring-loaded gate is shut. The operator then enters the catcher’s walk thru opening and secures the calf in the holder for tagging, branding, weighing, or medical treatments. By design, the mothers typically remain at the back of the catcher during processing where the calf holder is located. The mother cow is able to see and smell her calf resulting in a much calmer experience for everyone. When finished the operator releases the calf out the back gate to its waiting mother. The calf catcher can be used on newborns and calves up to 300 lbs. Calf catcher owner Jerry Henshaw of Oklahoma had a dangerous run in with a protective momma cow prior to getting the catcher and said, “We now have total safety, confidence and are stress free when working newborn calves.” Some government agencies are taking note, including the State of Tennessee and Alberta, Canada, which are now offering Safety Zone Calf Catcher incentive rebates in hopes of reducing medical costs related to injuries in the field. Easy to Operate Dan Leo, a Nebraska rancher and owner of the Safety Zone Calf Catcher company states, “We are all about safety and making calf processing easier.” Mounting only takes a few minutes and is compatible with both ATV and UTV using ball-coupler hitches. The calf catcher is designed for quiet operation so it doesn’t disrupt the heard and works well on multiple terrains, including rocks, hills, holes, mud and snow. An optional tow hitch offers easy transport of the catcher. “As ranchers ourselves, we’ve listened to our customers and how the catcher needs to work”, says Leo. The catcher starts at $2,095, visit safetyzonecalfcatcher.com for more information.

The Dave Evans Breeder of the Year Award Perpetuation and Promotion of the Texas Longhorn Breed A native Texan, Dave Evans entered the Texas Longhorn industry in 1977, establishing the Yellow Pine Ranch at Cuchara, CO. He and his wife, Billicarole, quickly became enthusiastic about the breed and additional ranches were purchased to supplement the original ranch. Evans served on the Board of Directors of both the TLBAA and the Mountains & Plains Texas Longhorn Association. He also served terms as TLBAA Vice-President. He was a founding partner and host of the Colorado National Texas Longhorn Sale, a record-breaking event when it started in 1981, which continued to be one of the industry’s major events for many years. From the start, Evans realized the necessity of using the best bulls available in the breed in order to develop a top herd. His goal was to breed for consistent size as well as correctness and outstanding horns. He purchased Texas Ranger JR in 1980, and then Dixie Rebel and Major Investment. In 1986, Evans acquired CT Spoty Ruler, the bull he considered to be the best he’d ever owned. Before his untimely death, Evans had succeeded in breeding a herd of Texas Longhorns that were well recognized in the breed. It is therefore a significant honor to be a recipient of this award, named in honor of this dedicated Longhorn breeder.

Elmer Parker Lifetime Award

Mel Raley Rising Star

Lifetime Devotion to the Texas Longhorn Breed and Its Breeders

Mel Raley will always be remembered as a shining star for the TLBAA because of his ability to share his vast knowledge of the Longhorn breed with new members. This special recognition is awarded to those who have been a member for less than five years and through involvement and sustained enthusiasm have made a positive impact on their peers and on the Longhorn breed. Past Recipients of the Mel Raley Rising Star Award

Elmer Parker was a longtime employee and manager of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Longhorn herd. Parker joined the staff at the Refuge in 1946, learning from the previous Longhorn managers: Earl Drummond, Heck Schrader and Joe Bill Lee. In 1968, he took over the responsibilities of the Longhorns at the Refuge and continued until his retirement in 1981. Thus, the continuity of Longhorn expertise at the Refuge continued for more than half a century. The Parker Brown color designation on Longhorn registrations was named after Elmer Parker – the dark brown, almost black color, with a lighter dorsal stripe, was one of his favorite colors.

Herd Management Guide body condition as winter approaches.

1. 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. 2. As grass matures, realize that the protein value decreases. Feeding of 2-3 lbs. of a high protein supplement (30-40 percent crude protein content) will stimulate the digestion of the mature forage; therefore, the cattle will consume more forage and maintain their

FALL Calving:

1. Prepare for the start of calving season and separate cow herd into management groups (first-calf heifers, second-calf cows, mature cows, and open heifers). Watch body condition of the groups closely. Young females entering their first calving season require special nutritional assistance to insure they maintain a reasonable body condition after calving, produce adequate levels for milk for their offspring and rebreed for the coming year. 2. Prepare for herd bull selection and procurement. Conduct breeding soundness exams and fertility checks on all bulls prior to the breeding season.

Herd Health

Horn Fly Control Time | Cost | Ease of Use of Chemical Solutions If you’ve ever been annoyed by a pesky fly, imagine the irritation of a blanket of biting insects on your back, shoulders and sides. That blanket of pests on your Longhorn is composed of horn flies. Other pests, such as face flies and horse flies, feed and then leave the host. Horn flies congregate in large numbers and feed on the animal 20 - 30 blood meals a day, only leaving to lay eggs in manure. That constant irritation can raise stress levels and decrease weight gain due to constantly trying to dislodge flies and find some relief. They have also been linked to summer mastitis in several studies. Once the number per animal reaches 200+ it is time to take action. There are many types of chemical solutions to give your cattle relief and reduce the numbers of flies in your herd. If you are bewildered looking at names such as coumaphos, diazinon, piperonyl butoxide, permethrin and terechlorvinphos, then you may want to check with your veterinarian or local county agent to see which ingredients have been most effective in your area. Flies have a tendency to develop resistance when the same chemicals are used repeatedly for long periods. It is best to rotate types of insecticide to help decrease the likelihood of resistant flies. The method chosen for application can affect your choice of ingredients as well. When looking at the following methods, prices are based on an average of prices commonly found. As always, any materials bought in bulk could lower the cost per application. The numbers presented here are for comaprison purposes only.

METHODS OF APPLICATION VETGUN A unique approach to fly control application is the VetGun created by SmartVet. It can be used to deliver VetCap AiM-L, round gel capsules holding Lamda Cyhalothrin, providing instant and lasting relief from horn flies. According to Agri-Labs, the distributor for both products, studies have proven there is no real difference in pour on effectiveness and the VetCap delivery. Contrarily, ear tags were found to start losing effectiveness at 8 weeks while two applications of vetcaps can last up to 10 weeks effectively. While it may cost more per use than some other methods, the ease of use, and lack of handling and stressing cattle may make it worth it for your program. You can hit your target safely from 15 to 30 feet away while quietly moving among the cattle. No confine52 | August 2016

ment, no handling, no stress. Using proven methods, you can easily accustom your cattle to the muffled sound with minimal startling and it is possible to treat up to 100 cattle in an hour. The gun is CO2 powered and the capsule is designed to fragment on impact, delivering the insectidice to migrate across the body. The leftover fragments help mark already tagged cattle. Chute required: No Hands on application: No Cost of equipment: VetGun $245 Cost per application: $2-$3 (includes capsule & Co2 cost) Time: 1 minutes or less per animal once animals and applicator are familiar with use.

EAR TAGS Not just for identification, ear tags can be an effective delivery method for fly control, especially against face and horn flies. The plastic tags contain insecticide which the animal disperses on itself by rubbing. They are a popular solution that can last for most of fly season when applied at the right time. Insecticide type should be rotated each season to prevent losing effectiveness. Removal as soon as effectiveness starts to decline is important to prevent resistance developing in the flies. The ear tag is applied by hand using a specialized tool. A chute is required, as the head must be kept still to assure proper placement and to protect the ear from damage. The tag must be cut off as soon as effectiveness wears off. It is recommend by most manufacturers to use two tags in mature cattle and one in younger cattle. Always read label instructions, as use can vary based on chemical composition. Exposure to insecticide for the applicator is small with proper handling of the tags. Requires a chute: Yes Requires hands on application: Yes Cost of equipment: Ear Tag Applicator $20 - $40

Methods Ear Tag Knife $5 Cost per application: $1.60 - $5.09 per mature cow $0.80 - $2.50 per calf Time: Varies with skill of applicator and calmness of cattle in chute. Also involves time rounding up cattle.

POUR-ON As the name implies, solutions are applied by pouring the insecticide down the centerline of the animal’s back. Effectiveness and duration vary based on the insecticide used. Some may need reapplication every three weeks, while stronger ones claim to last up to seven weeks. Amount of the product used has many variables as well. The average for a mature animal is 0.5 oz. with some requiring even less for smaller animals. Reading labels is imperative when choosing a pour on. All the variables in insecticide classes and dilution rates leads to a wide range in cost per application. With such a small amount used, you need to keep the animal still and be precise with your actions, so confining the animal in a chute or alleyway is advised. There is the potential for skin contact with the product, but the risk is minimal with proper care taken and use of a pouron gun. Requires a chute: Yes Requires hands on application: Yes Cost of equipment: Pour-On Gun $16 - $20 Cost per application: $0.35 - $0.60 per mature cow Time: Varies with skill of applicator and calmness of cattle in chute.

Herd Health SPRAYS: There are a number of ways fly spray can be applied. For just a few head, a small hand-held spray bottle may suffice. As the number of Longhorns needing to be treated grows, the methods range from portable low pressure sprayers and misters to truck mounted pressure sprayers. You can even mount sprayers that work automatically, triggered by the cattle, above a walk through. Most insecticides available may be used in a spray form, but dilution rates, methods used to apply and insecticide class lead to a wide range of variables in cost and time spent. Water is the most common diluter for spray on applications. However,some insecticides suggest mixing with mineral oil or diesel, depending on how it is being applied. Once again, label reading before choosing is a must. For those concerned about exposure for the applicator, sprays require preventatative measures. The risk of skin coming in contact with spray or mist being inhaled is fairly high and one may prefer to wear protective clothing or a mask. Masks range from the disposable white masks you can get cheaply to half face respirators. The amount of risk varies depending on method used. With mist and hand-held sprayers especially, wind can be a problem during application.

Cost of equipment: Sprayer $4 hand-held up to $1,000+ depending on type Mask $5 - $20 (if desired) Cost per application: $0.10 - $0.60 per cow. Higher if required to mix with mineral oil or diesel Time: Varies with method chosen. May involve prep time if dilution is required on chosen insecticide.

FEED-THROUGH:

Keeping flies from repopulating is the goal of feedthrough control. Purchased as a component of mineral blocks or as a feed additive, these Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) keep larvae from developing into flies. No resistance is developed because insecticide is not involved. It breaks the life cycle. While it can cut down numbers, having close neighbors can reduce effectiveness due to flies migrating over. Those with their cattle away from neighboring herds see the greatest reduction in fly numbers. It tends to be most effective when used in combinaion with other methods. Cost of equipment: Mineral block holder $10-$12 (if desired) Cost per animal: $0.60 - $1 per mineral block with Rabon. Number of blocks per season varies. Manufacturers suggest one block per 5 - 15 head depending on the block content and size. The easy way to work Longhorn cattle!

Herd Health

Common Skin Problems include Ringworm Many species of animals (including cattle and humans) are susceptible to ringworm--which is caused by fungi. This skin disease can have economic importance if very many animals in the herd have ringworm with hair loss in winter or if it goes through a group of animals you wanted to sell. Even though it’s mainly a cosmetic problem, animals with ringworm tend to bring a lower price—and no one wants to introduce it into their herd. Ringworm is a problem in show animals; there are rules against bringing affected animals to a show because this fungal skin disease is contagious. “Contact with infected animals, such as rubbing on one another, is the most common way the fungus is spread,” says Dr. J. Dustin Loy, University of Nebraska, Lincoln. “Ringworm (dermatophytosis) is also contagious to people,” says Dr. Andrew Niehaus, Ohio State University. “It’s what we call a zoonotic disease.” Humans or

56 | August 2016

animals can get ringworm if they have a skin abrasion and a compromised immune system. “There are several species of fungi that can cause ringworm, including trichophyton and microsporum species and the lesions look similar,” says Niehaus. “Usually the lesions are circular esions are and associated with hair loss. usually circular These are often around the face, patches of hair eyes and neck loss and can but can also affect other areas become large on the body. You may see them around the flanks or legs, but less commonly,” he says. During initial stages the skin may just be irritated and red. “Then the hair starts falling out. If you pluck hairs from that area they come out readily. This is probably when it’s most contagious. After that the skin becomes crusty, forming a dry scab over the bare area. At that stage it may no longer be contagious, but we are still very careful to wear gloves when an animal comes into the clinic with ringworm,” says Niehaus. There may be some itchiness. The animal may rub on a fence or some other object-which may spread the disease if another animal rubs there. Cattle also rub on each other and may become exposed to the fungi. “The lesions are characteristically circular patches of hair loss but if they get close together they may coalesce into bigger areas that aren’t typical in appearance,” says Niehaus. “Diagnosis is usually based on clinical signs and appearance, though there are a few other types of lesions that can look similar. We usually assume its ringworm and treat it, but if a definitive diagnosis is needed, we could culture the lesion to make the diagnosis,” he says. Ringworm is often a winter problem or during a long period of wet weather, because these fungi thrive in a damp, dark environment, according to Dr. Andi Lear, Colorado State University. “The literature tells us that in many herds about 20% of the cattle carry some of these fungi, but the organisms may not always ringworm except in susceptible individuals,” Lear says. Young animals may be more vulnerable, as are old

or immune-compromised animals. Animals with skin abrasions may get ringworm. “Even though the fungal spores are present in the environment and all animals are exposed, if they have a functional immune system they can fight it off,” says Lear. Ringworm usually runs its course within a few weeks to months. “Often the animal mounts an immune response and becomes more resistant. The resulting immunity is not 100% protective; individual animals can get it again,” Niehaus says. “Animals in confined areas are more at risk for ringworm because an infected individual is more likely to spread it. If an individual is infected it would be helpful to isolate that one. This may be impractical in many cases, but would be something to consider,” he says.

Ringworm Treatment

Treatment is based on killing the fungus. “I use topical miconazole or clotrimazole,” says Niehaus. “These are available overthe-counter as creams or sprays for athlete’s foot. This is probably the best way to treat ringworm, along with getting the animal into the sunshine. This may be hard if you live in a place with dark, damp winters. Green grass and sunshine tend to give the best results.” There are systemic antifungal medications but there are two drawbacks to using these in cattle. “First, it is expensive to treat a large animal because of the large dose required. Second, there are no labeled anti-fungal medications for use in food-producing animals, and the veterinarian and producer need to be aware of withdrawal times for treated animals that might go to slaughter.

Also be aware that systemic absorption of a drug is possible even with topical therapies,” he says. “Some people treat for ringworm, but many ‘cures’ are probably due to the fact that treatment was given just before the lesions started to resolve on their own,” says Lear. “Several types of disinfectants can be applied topically to the lesions. Iodine solutions, lime sulfur, chlorhexadine, etc. can be diluted and sprayed onto the animal. We don’t have any good anti-fungal drugs labeled for systemic use in livestock. Treatment is generally just a topical application and tincture of time,” she says. There is a ringworm vaccine that’s been used in cattle and horses in Europe, but it is not available in the U.S.

AFFILIATE NEWS -- continued from pg. 50

94K cash and no debts as of June 30, 2016. We provide a hand full of longhorn services through out the year. They are: The Cattle Baron’s Sale and Winchester Futurity in February. This futurity and sale will have about 140 show animals and 100 sale animals. It will feature a social event as well. It is our biggest fund raiser for youth scholarships. Three scholarships were awarded this year. The Spring Show at Miracle Farms is the last qualifying show for the World Show and it is also the biggest qualifying event. This past event only had a few less entries than the World Show. Our members also donate calves to the youth at this event. It actually gets a lot of longhorn owners started with their very first longhorn. Our affiliate is in charge of getting the cattle sponsored for the Longhorn Project at the Johnson Space Center. There will be a group of longhorn show cattle kept on the grounds at the NASA Space Center. These cattle will be cared for and taken to eight shows by area High School Students. The cattle are seen by a combination of almost 1,000,000 tourist and field trip students annually. It is major exposure for our breed.
