We own this bull in partnership with Samen NZ Ltd in New Zealand. This is the second bull we have sold to New Zealand for use in their Dairy industry. Dairy farming is a big part of New Zealand's economy and our Black Hereford bulls have found an important role as an AI sire to produce black baldie calves for beef production out of Holstein-Friesian cows.

I Tim Tarter ABHA President
The American Black Hereford
recently returned from New Orleans where the association participated in the 2019 National Cattlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beef Association Trade Show. This event is otherwise known as the NCBA and is the largest cattle trade show event in the world. The ABHA has been represented the last 3 years with a booth at the event. The trade show this year had a good attendance. Each year that I attend this event or any other type of event that the association participates in, I notice how much more recognized our breed has become. This year was no exceptions. Most people that stopped by the booth knew what a Black Hereford was. I heard far less comments about being just a Black Baldie. We had conversations and questions from many commercial cattlemen that were curious and showed interest in using Black Hereford bulls in their commercial herds. We now have several bulls across the country that are being used in commercial programs. The performance of those calves are making a statement in regard to superior growth and performance. Obviously we are becoming more accepted in the industry and now breeders are starting to believe and understand that the ABHA breeding program is working. We as a breed have done a great deal of work in the last 5 years in our genetic improvement and it is making a huge difference in the quality of our bulls and females. Members of the ABHA have done a fantastic job in broadening our genetic base. What we are doing in terms of breeding is working. Gaining acceptance and proving our worth as a young breed has been a slow process. I think it is safe to say we have arrived. As always we still have much work to do and the challenges never end but we are well on our way. We just need to keep pushing forward and never deviate from our objectives. While there I had an opportunity to meet with many people in the industry along with several research people and industry geneticists. Engaging and having conversations with industry scientists are of great benefit to myself, the association committee chair persons, and
the ABHA board of directors. The more facts and knowledge that we can obtain that directly affect our breeds data and EPDs, the better decisions and recommendations that the board can make on behalf of the members. Over the last 6 months there has been a tremendous amount of questions and discussion regarding the ABHA EPDs and how we evaluate them. I appreciate these questions. It shows me that members are interested in improving and understanding our EPDS. EPDS are a complicated and an in-depth process in regards to how to accurately calculate and project them. The board of directors have done a lot of work and are continuously having discussions as to how to improve and better calculate our EPDs. Our EPDS and calculation methods are improving but we still have a lot of work to do. Accurate EPDS are based on the amount of accurate data that is submitted. As a small but growing breed we struggle because of our limited amount of data that we have reported. This is not unique to the ABHA Breed. The problem is that with the small number of animals we have at this time there is simply not enough being reported to refine our EPDS. We are working hard to analyze DNA data and create genomic enhanced EPDS for our breed. We are still at best a couple of years from reaching that goal. Establishing and enhancing EPDs based upon DNA will allow us to add many more needed EPDS such as a calving ease and carcass data. The ABHA is a hybrid, breed up breed. This makes it challenging in some cases in establishing baseline EPDS for animals that are produced from the mating of our parent breed. The board and our geneticist have looked at many scenarios. The best we can find at this time is to base the beginning EPDs of these animals at breed average. I know that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what most of you want to here. We have analyzed and I have had several suggestions as to a better way. Currently when you examine all the facts in regards to accuracy this is still the best for establishing a starting Contâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d on pg. 22 EPDS for these type

Further details will be provided as the event nears. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Cattlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention in New Orleans, LA was attended by President Tim Tarter and Vice President Robert Walters.

other information are included in this issue of The American Black Hereford. The board met with Dr. Jon Beever of the University of Illinois to discuss the newly found genetic defect Maple Syrup Urine Disease. This is a lethal defect found in some lines of Herefords, and thus has found its way into our breed. The board voted unanimously to add testing for MSUD to the Certified Herd Sire package and it will be available individually, similar to other defects, for back testing on your herd. All CHS qualifying bulls tested prior to March 15, 2019 will be grandfathered in and continue to be usable Certified Herd Sires. CHS testing from March 15 will include the test for MSUD. We are looking forward to green grass and Spring temperatures, and wishing everyone a prosperous and profitable Spring. ABHA

Association Update Tim Tarter
he most important thing about the American Black Hereford Association is the cattle, their quality, the marketability, and what they can offer to our industry. While we still are considered a very small breed we have rapidly passed the number of registered cattle each year that many other small breeds are registering. Our tremendous growth has been a product of our association’s hard work and the cattle that our breeders are producing. We are rapidly on the way to becoming a major player in the industry. As we grow the management, the business side of the association becomes more involved and demanding. We must continue to offer more services and benefits to our members as well as maintaining a steady and sufficient cash flow based on our budget so that we can continue to expand. We have been successful in meeting these challenges for the last few years and the outlook for the breed both with our cattle and business model is very bright. Last month we renewed our contract with Neogen and added some new DNA services for our membership. Now you can order a 50 K test for heifers as a stand alone test and add any genetic defect testing on that test as you would like for a minimum price. You can also order that test and have it upgraded to the new Igenity beef profile if you want to score the values of performance on your animals. Submitting all of your DNA testing thru the association rather than sending the test thru Igenity or another genetic company provides many advantages which includes lower pricing, better service and more different packages of testing combinations available to you. Spring sales have already started and they have been strong especially the demand for Black Hereford bulls. The South West breeder’s sale that is coming up on March 30th in Texas is developing nicely. We have a full sale and the quality of animals consigned to the sale is very good. We have lots of buyer’s interested already. We hope as time and available staff allows that we will be able to expand these association sanctioned sales across different regions of the country. The 2019 committee selections have been made and all of them have a full agenda this spring. These committees play an important role in making recommendations to the board and helping with the work load. If you would like to serve on a committee please let me know. The association’s greatly improved genetics over the past few years is increasingly starting to show, and commercial cattlemen are enjoying great
The American Black Hereford
success crossbreeding with Black Hereford Bulls. The ABHA board’s agenda is full and we have a lot on our plate once again for 2019. Now that the newly elected board members are settled in, this board is continuously having discussions and debates as to how to move forward, improve our breed and manage the association business. These lively discussions and debates often bring about good solutions to problems and issues. The association has just finished making the last draw on the grant that we received for locating our headquarters in KY. The total grant money funded to the ABHA was $80,000. The move to KY and the grant has been a great thing for the ABHA and it has allowed us to move forward with many more of our objectives more quickly. Our mailing list for the magazine continues to grow and I always urge any of you that have customers or people that may be interested in Black Hereford cattle to submit their names to the office so that they may receive the magazine. The magazine as of now is free of charge for anyone that wishes to receive it. Last year the promotion committee did some research on a new website. We hope to move forward with creating a new website this year. The new site will be much more user friendly, and have a lot more useful information. We plan also to include an online store for merchandise on the site. Dr. Laruen Hanna is continuing to analyze our 50 k DNA data as it comes into the association. This is important work as we continue to compile enough data to develop genomic enhanced EPDS. Like most things in science developing genomic enhanced EPDs takes time but this is something that in time will be of great benefit in improving the accuracy of Black Hereford EPDs It’s soon going to be time to start submitting weaning and yearling weighs on your calves. I encourage all of you to make this a priority. I also encourage you to submit your scrotal circumference on all your Yearling bulls. We need this data for a scrotal circumference EPDs. It is easy to submit and this EPD relates directly to fertility. If you have never used our online systems feel free to call customer service. They can get you logged on the first time and walk you through the steps. It is easy and much simpler once you learn the system rather than manually sending in your data. This can save a lot of time. We have made much advancement in our breed. That’s come from determination, dedication and hard work. There will always be new challenges and goals that lie before us. We will meet them head on with passion and enthusiasm. ABHA

ABHA Junior Nationals The 2019 ABHA Junior Nationals will be held June 26th -29th at the LD Brown Convention Center in Bowling Green, Ky. This will be the 3rd Junior National event for the ABHA. Last year’s event was a great success with juniors participating from many states across the country. This junior committee has been working hard planning this year’s event in the hopes that it will be bigger and better. While the displaying and showing of the junior’s cattle is a big part of the event, more importantly is the opportunity that it brings to get our youth involved in our association. There will be many events other than the show that our juniors may participate in that allows them to interact with each other and the adult members This will also be the 3rd year for our junior scholarships for those that will be continuing their education after high school. Teresa and I started the scholarship program and fund a few years ago and the support and contributions to the funds by the membership has been fantastic. If you wish to contribute to the fund please make your check to the JAHBA and mail to the Bowling Green, KY office.. We will also be crowning our American Black Hereford Queen. Our first and current Queen will be passing her crown and rein over to the newly elected queen during the
event. Kenadi Rumble, our very first Queen has lived up to expectations and has done a great job in representing the breed as ABHA queen. All of the entry forms and rules will be on the ABHA website and you will only be able to submit your show entries, scholarship applications, and queen applications online. Please pay close attention to all entry deadlines. The junior nationals are a very special event for me personally. The education that this event provides for our juniors is very valuable but most of all I think all of the juniors as well as the involved adults, look forward to it. It is a fun 3 days. I am a strong believer that the support and guidance that we provide for junior members molds their future in regards to our breed and the cattle industry in general. We have a huge amount of both junior and adult volunteers that help make this event possible along with many corporate sponsors and individual supporters. I encourage all of you to get involved either by donating your time or through sponsorships. For more information on the junior nationals please contact Rhonda Rumble, Junior committee chair person at 812-486-7992 email smallacresfarm13@ gmail.com or call the ABHA Office at 833-501-4750 option 2 or email email@example.com ABHA

Junior Scholarships Available Each year the ABHA awards 2 scholarships to junior members that will be continuing their education. The application, deadline, rules and requirements can be found on the ABHA website. The association has always been a strong supporter of our junior association. We firmly believe in the investment that we are making in our juniors as they are the future of our breed. The JABHA junior association is still very young but is growing rapidly. In the short few years that it has been established we have seen many of our former juniors excel in their college education as well as in the industry. We take pride in seeing the success of our juniors and are hopeful that because of their experience as a JABHA member it had a positive impact in their future. I encourage all eligible JABHA members to apply for the 2 scholarships. ABHA

The Campbell Place A Solid Team
onnie Campbell Jr., Vickie Campbell and Ronnie Campbell Sr. are The Campbell Place. They consist of a three person partnership. Son, mother and father ~ a solid team. The Campbell Place was established in 2002 where it proudly owns a farm located on West Lane Street in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Ronnie Campbell Jr, says, “First and foremost, I would like to give all the praise and glory to my savior Jesus Christ. HE is the head of my life. Jesus has continually blessed me every day and made all of this attainable.” When The Campbell Place initially started, they were a horse farm, showing and raising Tennessee Walkers. “We were involved in the horse business for as long as I can remember.” Ronnie states, “Shelbyville is the Walking Horse capital of the world so people couldn’t believe it when I told them I was going to show cattle.” Ronnie’s great grandfather Earnest Campbell previously had a dairy farm on Earnest Campbell Road in Flat Creek Tennessee, where he milked Jersey cattle in which it brought an interest into cattle. “I started really developing an interest and began getting into cattle in 2010. It was then that my mom and I decided to get some cattle.” At first The Campbell Place owned Commercial Black Baldies but later decided it’s better to have quality than quantity. They did some research and came across the American Black Herefords. “I sold my favorite trail horse to purchase my first registered Black Hereford in 2012. As time went by, I realized how I missed showing horses, and it was then that I decided to show my calves for fun and exposure.” During Ronnie Campbell Jr’s first year at the National’s, his heifer won first place in her class and it was then that he was completely hooked. Ronnie states, “I focus my program with raising the best show animal I can, without all the extra feed and supplements to see if can get them to match others by providing great bulls for the commercial farmer.” Right now The Campbell Place still raises horses and Red and Black Hereford’s. From having one Black Hereford in 2012 to a herd of 42 now in 2019, The Campbell’s really love their Black Hereford family. Ronnie states “The ABHA is the best group of people to be in an organization with. Everyone is so helpful in so many ways that the list is too long to mention. ”The Campbell Place was named just that because they
The American Black Hereford
have a RV park that they rent out camper spots so it really isn’t just a farm or ranch. “It IS the place to be.” The ABHA wants to recognize the Campbell Place for all their support and participation. This family is a great representation of the breed, with the aspect of quality over quantity. Their partnership with the promotion, events and continual support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing all their future success. ABHA

animals. We have to base our decisions on facts not what seems right or sounds good. Let me give you an example. Many of you are calling for a calving ease EPD. I agree we desperately need it. The normal method of establishing a calving ease EPD is based upon the number of animals that are born and being reported as unassisted or assisted. Currently most of our Calves being born are being reported as unassisted. So if we create a calving ease EPD based upon the reported data most all our bulls would be considered a calving ease bull. We all know that is not correct. So the board is faced with the problem of do we create an EPD that is not accurate just so we can say we have one or do we just ride it out until we obtain enough data that it will have a true representation of our bulls calving ease ability. The board has also discussed creating a calving ease EPD using a different non-traditional method. ABHA Vice President Robert Walters and I had a meeting at the NCBA show with (who
MARK NUELLE HUSCHER FARMS
many consider) one of the leading geneticists in the world. He said, sure he could create us a calving ease EPD based upon our parent breeds maternal traits. Wow did we get excited, until we heard him say that it would be about 10% accurate. The point I am trying to make here is that it is frustrating for members and the board both. This is something we just have to ride out be patient and continue to push for more data. We will get there in time. I know we are all anxious but you just can’t create this stuff out of thin air. I promise you the board of directors are continually working hard and having discussions as to how to move forward and improve. I always welcome your call and questions. I think the more our members are involved and understand the problems we are up against the better it is for all of us. I only ask that you be as patient as you can and have faith in your board that we are doing everything we can to broaden and improve our EPDs. ABHA

Maple Syrup Urine Disease Found in Black Herefords By Logan Hill, Breed Improvement Committee Chair
aple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) is a genetic disorder found in the Hereford breed. It is labeled as a Class 1 Lethal Defect by the American Hereford Association. However, there is not currently a testing protocol for it within the Hereford breed. Symptoms of the disorder include a sweet smell in the urine, calves may not be able to get up or lift their head, and a loud noise or touch can induce repetitive muscle spasms. This response is caused by the calf ’s inability to process amino acids correctly leading to a quick form of protein poisoning. MSUD is lethal to the calf 100% of the time. MSUD was brought to our attention by a member breeder who was having calves die unexplainedly. He had contacted Dr. Jon Beever of the University of Illinois who is a leading national expert in genetic defects. After testing the cowherd, he determined that MSUD was prevalent, not only in that herd, but in the Black Hereford population at large. According to Dr. Beever, 287 samples were tested and 13% of
those came back as carriers. This is a large enough occurrence of carrier animals in our population to warrant a mandatory testing protocol. The ABHA Board of Directors voted unanimously to implement testing for MSUD. The test will be added into the Certified Herd Sire and 50K packages as well as a standalone test. They will be available for purchase on the Digital Beef portal the same way our other tests are offered. All Certified Herd Sires that passed their testing prior to March 15, 2019 are grandfathered into the herd book and will remain usable. Management of MSUD is very similar to AM, DD, and IE. It is a simple recessive gene, meaning that it’s presence on only one allele of a genotype will not present an afflicted animal. It takes two carrier parents to create the afflicted calf, however an MSUD carrier will pass on the recessive gene in 50% of it’s matings. It is possible to continue to use a carrier animal to create calves that are free of the defect, but the risk is high. The Board believes that the testing protocol through the CHS rule will eventually remove the danger of afflicted animals from the breed. ABHA

Dylan Kiser, Junior President
n my last Juniors Corner, I talked about the amount of growth that the ABHA and JABHA accomplished in 2018. I would like to see these growths continue this year, especially with the Juniors. Coming up is a great opportunity for this growth to start. The 2019 Junior Nationals is right around the corner. There will be four junior board seats opening up and I encourage all the juniors to apply to be a part of this amazing opportunity. It allows the juniors to voice their opinions about the breed and organization, and recruit new junior members. We will be electing a new ABHA Queen as well which is another great opportunity for you to be the face of the breed. Don’t forget about the scholarship either. Last year two juniors where selected as scholarship recipients. You do not have to be an Ag major to apply. The Junior Board is working on a new contest for the juniors to participate in this year as well, I hope that everyone enters. On behalf of the Junior Board, good luck at Junior nationals and we can’t wait to see everyone there. Stay positive in your endeavors and keep up the hard work. The juniors are the feature of the ABHA.
