Don’t Let Your Cows Eat the Profit By Robert Wells, P.h.D, Livestock Consultant, Noble Foundation

I

ntentional beef producers will develop a winter feeding strategy and calving season that reduces the cost of winter feed. The bulk of the cost of cow ownership typically occurs during the winter when additional supplementation is required. University and industry data indicate that annual cow costs range from $500 to $600. Nutritional supplementation makes up 40-60% of this total annual cost; thus, ranging from $200 to $360 per cow per year. Mineral supplementation makes up about $35 of the total nutritional costs. The remainder, $165-325 on average, is spent on supplemental feed and hay. What can be done to reduce the cost of the herd supplementation program without negatively impacting cow body condition score and reproduction? The most impactful element that should be considered is to time the

cow’s peak lactation with when the best quality and quantity forage is available. This time is when she has the highest nutritional demand. Refer to the graph to understand the relationship of timing of calving relative to the cow’s highest nutritional demand. Peak lactation occurs about two to three months after birth.

IMPACTS ON BODY CONDITION SCORE

Many producers think the best time to start calving is when the spring or winter flush of forage is at its peak. However if they do this, then by the time peak lactation occurs, the cow may have missed the best forage of the year and will not be able to take full advantage of it. This will impact the cow through her body condition score (BCS) since there is a possibility that she will be on a negative plane of nutrition and losing weight. The first

IMPACTS ON REPRODUCTION

For young a cow that is trying to breed for her second calf, the impact of nutrition can be the difference between her getting rebred or not. These females have a much higher nutritional demand than do mature cows. Two-year-old cows are still growing, lactating and trying to support the next reproductive cycle in that order, respectively. Reproduction is the first physiological process the cow will shut down if she is nutritionally compromised. Most of the time, lack of proper nutrition is to blame when a cow fails to get rebred for the second calf. Cows that fail to rebreed or breed late will “eat away” at the profit of the entire ranch. A cow that calves just 30 days later than the previous year has given up at least 60 pounds of additional weaning weight, which can translate into about $75 of lost value. A cow that doesn’t breed at all has incurred all the annual costs of production yet did not repay the owner with a live calf at birth. In this sense, she is eating away at the ranch profit margin. ABHA

thing that the cow will lose is fat and her BCS will be reduced. Secondly, by starting the calving season about two months in advance of the height of the forage quality and quantity, this will ensure that the majority of the cows will calve at the most opportune time relative to forage quality. In a 60-day calving season, at least half of the cows should be in peak lactation when the annual flush of forage arrives.

Since the cow will be consuming extremely high quality forage that exceeds 60% total digestible nutrients (TDN) and 10% crude protein (CP), she will be rebuilding any body fat reserves. This will signal to the body that the cow is in a favorable environment and can support the next pregnancy. Thus, she will start to cycle again in a timely manner after calving. Cow nutrition and subsequent body condition score has been demonstrated numerous times to have an impact on her rebreeding rate. A cow that is in a BCS of five or greater will have a much greater probability of timely rebreeding compared to one that is in a BCS of four or less. In this regard, what occurs this year can have a significant impact on profitability next year.

Unity Jennifer Hill

By Jennifer Hill

W

e live in an increasingly divisive world. The mass adoption of social media, the 24 hours news cycle and politicizing of absolutely every topic all add to the feeling that we are on Team A or Team B and ready to fight. Debate and discussion often takes an angry, useless face as people seem to dig deeper into their “factions”. For any group, nation, community or association to stay alive and continue moving forward they must have some level of unity. But how, in a world where we are forced to be suspicious of everything and taught to hate the other team, do we ever find it? Below are a few tips for working through issues while moving forward together. 1. Debate the issues, but don’t take dissent personal. I grew up in a home that loved to debate. Over dinner we debated everything; politics, education, the merits of bell peppers, you name it. I married into a similar family. We genuinely enjoy discussing and even arguing our points and seek to convince and challenge each other’s thoughts and perspectives. It wasn’t until I was well into adulthood that I realized that most people don’t do this. I was confused when I discovered that many people took my questions, challenges and debate personal. Instead of hearing the merits of my argument they heard a personal attack on their beliefs. But this inability to hear and consider the other side does us all a disservice. It prevents us from ever growing and changing with the times, seeing the complexities of the world around us and deepening our understanding of the issues. It also stops us from solidifying our own arguments. The best way to perfect your own philosophy is to have it challenged and respond. Just like exercising any muscle, your mind must be stretched and challenged to bear weight in order to grow. So discuss the issues. Debate them inside and out. But when someone disagrees with you (and they will), don’t take it personal. Take it as an opportunity to go deeper into the topic and grow. 2. Be philosophically consistent and challenge others to do the same. This one is hard. Everyone

has their pet issue that matters so much to them they occasionally bend their own philosophical stances to self-justify their thoughts. “Data and EPDs matter, but my favorite bull didn’t come out like I think he should have, so the entire thing is a sham”, or “I’m a small government guy, but boy they HAVE to regulate and add more rules to the market”. We all do this sometimes and we all must challenge ourselves to see our inconsistencies and correct them. 3. Look outside of ourselves. Whenever we are considering policies or plans that impact an entire group there will be some positive benefits and some negative impacts. It’s impossible to please everyone, yet decisions must be made. So instead of only focusing on the personal impact (although it does matter and you should be aware of what it will be) we must also consider what the overall group impact will be. Will this move the group forward and safeguard the future? Can I personally overcome this because I acknowledge that in the long run a healthy group is best for me too? 4. Be willing to work for it. Let’s face it, around our nation we are seeing the effects of participation trophy culture, and no, it’s not just the millennials. Growth in any organization will take a lots of sweat and tears and it will not happen overnight. If you want to see change be prepared to work, wait and prove yourself for it. Acknowledge the work that came before you and be ready to do the same. 5. Focus on the big picture and the future. We will never all agree on everything. But we can remind ourselves, especially when we are in the heat of disagreement, that we are all here for the same reason; to make a better organization, not to live in the past. The word unity sounds pretty but the reality is that once any conversation goes more than surface deep it becomes hard to achieve. Achieving it requires that we are comfortable with not always getting our way, acknowledging our weaknesses and considering things deeply. But we must focus on the noble goal of working towards it, even when total consensus cannot be achieved.ABHA

The Top 6 Factors Affecting Bull Fertility By Ryon Walker, Ph.D, Livestock Consultant, Noble Foundation

S

ignificant emphasis has been placed on the importance of fertility in the female, whether in the cow or a developing heifer. When we address fertility in one female, we are affecting one offspring. When we address fertility in one male, we could be affecting up to approximately 35 offspring, in a single year. Is this oversight on bull fertility because bulls are overlooked until it is time to turn them out for the breeding season? We know that reproductive failures can occur in any cow-calf operation and can be costly. Let’s take the bull out of that negative equation and take a look at the top 6 factors I believe affect bull fertility. 1. DISEASE A good herd health program is invaluable, especially for the bulls. A health program in bulls reduces or eliminates the risk of transmitting diseases that can cause reproductive failure in females at different stages of pregnancy. Conditions such as Leptospirosis, Vibriosis, Trichomoniasis, Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD), IBR-Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (Red Nose), and internal parasites can all contribute directly or indirectly to reproductive failure in the female. Diseases such as Lepto and Vibrio (bacterial diseases) and Trich (protozoal disease) cause abortion within the first 3 months (Lepto and Trich) or during mid-gestation (Vibrio) after infection and is transmitted directly between animals. These diseases can be vaccinated and managed for. 2. PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS You can identify subfertile bulls with the help of a breeding soundness exam (BSE). A BSE consists of a scrotal circumference measurement (indicator of puberty and serving capacity), physical evaluation (indicator of mating ability) and a semen exam (assessment of motility and morphology). A BSE should be conducted at 30 to 60 days prior to the first day of the breeding season to allow time for a re-test o a bull that was questionable in passing (classification deferred) or a replacement if he does not pass a BSE (unsatisfactory breeder). A study conducted at Kansas State University reported that pregnancy rates were reduced more than 6% in cows serviced by bulls without a BSE conducted compared to bulls that passed a BSE prior to the breeding season. It is reported that 1 out of 5 bulls are subfertile across a random population, therefore a BSE conducted by your veterinarian is a cheap investment. 3. NUTRITION Nutrition can play a big role in the health of a bull prior to the breeding season. In young developing bulls, proper development is critical to ensure the bull is ready for the breeding season and producing high quality sperm. Under-development of bulls can delay puberty and potentially impair semen quality. Over-development of bulls with a high energy ration can create problems, such as excessive fat in the scrotum (increased heat stress), decrease semen production and quality, and risk of digestive issues and lameness. Bulls (young or mature) should go into the breeding season in a body condition score of 6 ± 0.5 (no skeletal structure or ribs visible with signs of some fat cover). Bulls should go into the breeding season wearing their Sunday best and come out wearing working clothes and should be evaluated at the end of each breeding season for soundness and body condition. 14

4. BULL-TO-COW RATIO Improper bull-to-cow ratio in a breeding pasture can result in lower pregnancy rates or too much bull power during the breeding season. Multiple factors can affect the success of proper bull-to cow-ratios, such as terrain, time of year, the desire of a bull to mate (libido), mating ability, semen quality, condition of the bull going into the breeding season, and bull age. Because of these factors, a range is generally used based on each producer’s breeding program. I am comfortable with ranges from 1 bull to 10 cows up to 1 bull to 40 cows. Mature bulls (4 years of age and older) can service 30 to 40 cows comfortably as long as all of the other factors are favorable. However, younger bulls have a lower serving capacity, thus cannot service the same number of cows. A good rule of thumb to use on younger bulls is 1 bull to his age in months. For example, a 17-monthold bull should only be expected to service at most 17 cows during his first breeding season. There is a misconception that cows synchronized for natural service will need a lower bull-to-cow ratio because of the increased number of cows in heat during a shorter window at the beginning of the breeding season, compared to unsynchronized cows. Based on research in 2008, the bull-to-cow ratio can be the same as unsynchronized cows up to 30 cows. 5. INATTENTION TO BULL BEHAVIOR Not paying attention to bull behavior during the breeding season can sometimes result in a fertility train wreck, especially in single sire pastures. Problems with the bull during the breeding season are oftentimes not detected until after the breeding season or pregnancy diagnosis at weaning, and by then it’s too late. OBSErvations leading to diagnosis of problems affecting fertility include lameness or illness. These problems negatively impact a bull’s mating ability; cause physical or internal damage to the testes, which could negatively impact semen quality and serving capacity (the ability to service several cows in a short period of time); and affect how aggressive bulls are at servicing cows (libido). Libido is a measureable trait that is positively correlated to pregnancy rate and can be oBSErved when multiple cows are in heat at the same time. We should spend more time monitoring and oBSErving our bulls for physical and behavioral issues throughout the breeding season and make sure he is getting the job done. 6. HEAT STRESS Exposure of bulls to increased ambient temperatures with insufficient heat loss (or evaporative cooling) can potentially reduce fertility due to heat stress. Testicular temperature of bulls must consistently be 2 to 6 degrees Celsius (3.6 to 10.8 degrees Fahrenheit) cooler than the body temperature, and relative humidity can affect a bull’s ability to effectively dissipate heat through the skin when exposed to increased ambient temperatures. If heat stress has occurred eight weeks prior to the time bulls are exposed with cows, semen quality and motility can be reduced. Other factors such as breed type, access to shade and water, and improper handling can affect the ability of a bull to not dissipate heat effectively. Eight weeks are needed for normal semen production to return after exposure to heat stress. FINAL THOUGHTS In summary, management can have the biggest impact on reducing bull fertility issues. Keep in mind that it takes 60 days for a bull to produce sperm, so decisions should be made in advance to avoid potential negative effects on bull fertility.ABHA

HOMOZYGOUS BLACK - Here he is, the complete package, Jo Atomic 8008. There is a reason the ABHA is using this bull as its flagship bull on advertisements. His dam of distinction mother has 15 progeny recorded at 104.9% WWR and 103.3 YWR. His father is the famous high selling Bullseye bull. Jo Atomic 8008 is 89.75% and Homozygous Black. We have his first crop of calves in the pasture and they have impressed us. We feel that Jo Atomic 8008 will really change the breed, so we have reduced semen on him to $25/straw. Exportable semen is available.

ABHA, and for good reason. He has over 300 registered progeny in the ABHA, but he has been used extensively in commercial herds. We have commercial breeders that come back year after year to breed 60 to 100 heifers to him. I have never heard of a calving issue with a Black Jack calf. Black Jack ranks in the top 5% for Calving Ease and low Birth Weight and has 82% accuracy. His progeny have done really well at shows all across the U.S. We have received more compliments on his daughters than any other bull, and we have used three sons of his in our herd. We exportable semen on Black Jack and have semen in Canada at Alta Genetics. I believe that Black Jack will be talked about as one of the foundation bulls of the ABHA for years to come.

By Laken Troup, Junior President & ABHA Queen

O

ver the past few months I have found myself reflecting and thinking about how I can be a better leader to those around me and how we can all create a better breed and association for future generations. As much as I don’t want to talk about the “uncertain times” or “new normal” because it seems so cliché, I feel as if my entire outlook has changed and I believe that I can bring positivity to our members to help them keep their focus through these times. While many of our stock shows or expo’s may be cancelled, it becomes harder to keep our focus when it seems the goal shows are getting farther away or almost disappearing. However, what we overlook is a new opportunity. Instead of grabbing the remote to the T.V. we should be grabbing the halters, a set of clippers, and getting to work. Instead of dreading the time stuck at home, we could be using this time to be working with our livestock and finding new ways to be agricultural advocates. This overall expands the horizons of agriculture which will continue to grow for generations to come. With all of this being said I encourage our members to find new ways to advocate while also bringing positivity to those around us. We all need a strong support system at times, the people that really encourage us and help us as we strive for bigger and better things. I say this because I would like to ask our senior breeders for their best piece of advice that they would give to our new AJBHA members! Please feel free to reach out to me at lakentroup@gmail.com .

veryone loves to post on Facebook. Pictures of grandkids, scenery, adventures and even what someone ate for dinner regularly fill my newsfeed. It’s a great way to keep up with old high school friends, cousins you don’t see often and promote what you believe in. In fact, as beef producers we are told by advocacy groups that we must use social media to tell our story, but is there a potential for oversharing it? Seeing pictures and posts from ranchers all over the nation doing what they do is incredible. I have learned a great deal about how other operations function, regional differences and many new and interesting ideas from these posts. I’ve seen cattle worked in just about every way imaginable (if you haven’t seen the video of the broke to ride steer allowing the cowboy to rope calves and drag them back to the fire, you are missing out). But I get squeamish when I see posts that leave us open for attack from animal rights advocates. Branding, castrating and ear notching are a reality of life for most of us. In my area cattle rustling is real and branding and ear notching are some of the best preventatives. But I also know that no matter the necessity of these practices PETA and other groups like them will never approve. I also know that these groups will stoop to low places to convert well-meaning but unknowledgeable city folks to their cause. Without your knowledge a video of your daughter branding her first calf, or the neighbors gathered to help you cut steers in record time, can be copied and used as propaganda for the vegan cause. I understand the urge to share these aspects of our lives with our family and friends. We feel pride at the work we do, the animals we raise and the people we surround ourselves with, and we want to share that. I encourage agricultural producers everywhere to tell their story, but be discerning.

Unfortunately staying vigilant of our own social media posts is not always enough. We must also be aware of what other people are recording around us. Several years ago during hunting season my husband and I discovered one of our cows lying in a field suffering from an extreme case of bloat. Regrettably this field was right next to our hunting camp, during hunting season. We worked to save the cow with a variety of procedures right where we were, as she was unable to stand. As we worked I looked over my shoulder and saw a hunter standing nearby with his phone out videoing the entire thing. I knew that to the average person with little livestock knowledge what we were doing to this cow may look cruel, when in reality what we did was save her from a slow, miserable death. She did eventually get up and walk off the rest of the bloat. But do you think PETA would share that portion of the event? After we were done I gently approached the hunter and asked him why he had filmed us and what his plans for the video were. He very excitedly explained that his son wanted to be a veterinarian and would think what we did was cool. At that moment I took a risk and decided to trust the man, assuming that a hunter was unlikely to be an animal activist, but I have worried about it ever since. What if he posted it to social media and it hurt my industry? Should I have explained my concerns to him and asked him to delete it? Probably. We know these malevolent organizations use a variety of shady tactics to hurt us. They plant employees and cameras and have developed a fondness for drones. With so many ways for animal rights advocates to push into our operations and twist our story we must be extra careful that we don’t inadvertently hand them fuel for their fire. ABHA

that combine estrus detection and timed A.I. In many cases, a common synchronization protocol can be used with several different insemination options. It is very important to note that some systems recommended for cows are NOT recommended for heifers and vice versa. Be sure you appropriately match the synchronization system to the cattle, your facilities, and your capabilities.

initiation of treatment. The single most important factor affecting cyclicity is nutrition. Feed cows to achieve a moderate or better body condition score by the time of calving and increase energy levels in rations to minimize the body condition loss after calving. Body condition score your cows regularly to ensure that your nutrition program is allowing for optimum reproductive performance in your herd.

Heat detection based programs – Although there are several heat detection based options available, these protocols are generally only recommended in rare instances where considerable labor is available, the quality of estrus detection is excellent, and the level of herd cyclicity is extremely high. This typically only applies to small herds of virgin heifers. Heat detection based options are seldom recommended for suckled beef cows because many will respond to treatment but may fail to display estrus. Programs that incorporate timed A.I. will generate pregnancies in these cows that otherwise would not have been inseminated.

Herd Health – Work with your veterinarian to maintain an intensive herd health and vaccination program that addresses all diseases of relevant concern to your geographic region. Perform all vaccinations at least three weeks ahead of the synchronization and breeding period to provide ample time for the immune system to respond and provide protection from the disease in question.

Fixed-Timed-A.I. options – In general, fixed-time A.I. options eliminate labor requirements for estrus detection allowing all cows to be inseminated at a predetermined fixed-time. Historically, fixed-time A.I. options have yielded somewhat variable results due in part to varying level of cyclicity among herds and perhaps poor timing of A.I. in relation to ovulation among some animals. However, through enhanced follicular control and induction of cyclicity, recent research has yielded timed A.I. options with much greater consistency than prior technologies. In particular the COSynch CIDR for cows and the CIDR-Select for heifers are most often resulting in fixed time A.I. conception rates in excess of 50 percent and often in excess of 60 percent. Heat Detection and Timed A.I. – Programs that combine timed A.I. and estrus detection will likely yield slightly greater and more consistent conception and pregnancy rates over the long run. However, because these systems use both estrus detection and timed A.I., the costs and/or labor will tend to be higher and in many scenarios the conception advantage (if any) may be insufficiently small to offset the cost. These combined programs are good options if herd cyclicity is in question. Based on estrus response prior to the fixed time A.I., producers have the flexibility to abort the timed A.I. portion saving on semen cost. Additionally, the combination options are a good choice when extremely expensive/limited supply semen is being used. The more valuable semen can be used in the higher conception cows that display estrus and less valuable semen can be used in females that fail to show estrus and are bred by timed A.I.

MANAGEMENT TIPS TO MAXIMIZE SUCCESS

Nutrition – The major factor affecting the success of any estrus synchronization protocol is the percentage of animals cycling at the

Bull Exposure – Exposure of females to bulls in the early postpartum period has been shown to decrease the number of days to the first postpartum ovulation and to increase the percentage of cows cycling at the beginning of the breeding season. Bulls should be surgically altered to prevent insemination and disease transmission. Androgenized females also have a biostimulatory effect equal to that of bulls and are inexpensive to produce. Calf Removal – The suckling stimulus of a nursing calf extends the duration of postpartum anestrus in cattle. While not commonly practiced, early weaning of calves provides an excellent means to improve the cycling status of the average beef herd. Temporary calf removal (48 hours) initiated concurrently with the PGF injection of any synchronization protocol is a more common and easily implemented procedure. Miscellaneous Details – First-calf heifers, late calving cows, difficult births, and retained placentas are all associated with reduced fertility. Group these “high risk” animals separately so maximum nutrition, veterinary care and TLC can be efficiently provided. Estrus detection aids applied at the time of PGF injection improve heat detection efficiency and facilitate identification of cows that should also receive GnRH at 72 hour timed-A.I. Make sure adequate labor will be available for heat detection and breeding and that each person is adequately trained for their assigned task. Recheck the semen tank and breeding kit to ensure adequate quantities of semen and all breeding supplies are in your possession before you synchronize. Make sure all handling facilities are in proper working order and safe for both man and beast. If you have further questions regarding use of estrus synchronization as a reproductive management tool in your herd, contact your local Select Sires member co-op.
