The American Black Hereford

reetings! I hope that you, your family, and cattle are doing well. This is an interesting time for agriculture with input prices continually climbing and available labor low, this is touchy for even the most efficient operations. Thankfully, we are seeing the reciprocal of this in cattle and commodity prices. Some say that 2022 could be a record-breaking year for prices and we will be hoping that it is. Often, and particularly in the cattle business, when we see demand and prices increase, the selection pressure and quality control decreases. Let us do our best to stay diligent in supplying the best product we can for the industry and our customers. The level of American Black Hereford cattle currently available is gaining attention across the cattle industry and I feel we are about to see more seedstock producers from other breeds sample and look into what we have to offer. So, I say to you as breeders, great work, and please stay the course. I feel that we are on the correct path. The use of progressive genetics, leveraging science and genomics, and ramping up your local marketing are the ingredients needed to reach our destination. In speaking with cattlemen from across the country, there are so many people who are recognizing the American Black Hereford and what it can bring to the industry. Another topic that has come up in conversations lately is the subject of stayabilty. Simply put, cows that stay in the herd longer make more money. Females that are still in the herd at 6 years of age are believed to have recouped the costs of their development and are generating income. Fertility is the main factor used when determining a cow’s stayability. Obviously, if she breeds in the desired calving range, carries a calf every year, and raises a heavy calf, she is a valuable producer. But, there are many factors to consider in a cow’s ability to stay in the herd for an extended period of time. Structure, foot quality, udder quality, teat size, docility and body condition score all factor into the longevity of a cow and how well she produces. These are all attributes of the American Black Hereford that we, as producers, know and love. Keeping breeding bulls and replacement females out of cows that have remained in the herd for many years is a good way to increase the stayability within your own herd and add market value for your customer. Do the math and discover what percent of cows make it to 6 years, 10 years, or 15 years of age, as valuable producers. Then check that against the industry average. Chances are, you’ll find you are sitting on a goldmine in terms of marketability when it comes to fertility and stayability. So, as we all get ready to sell our bulls this spring, consider offering some stayablity data to your potential buyers to give them an idea of the fertility and longevity the American Black Hereford breed has to offer so they, too, can take advantage of the highly productive stayability of the Black Hereford. On that note, the next ABHA sponsored sale, The Southern Classic, is taking place on April 1st in Henderson, TX. Take advantage of the opportunity to add some great cattle to your program from 15 fellow ABHA breeders. The 2022 ABHA Junior Nationals will be held June 22nd-25th at the James E. Ward Ag Center at the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, TN. This will be our 6th Junior Nationals, so we are very excited, and planning is underway. Our Junior’s Committee has been working hard planning this year’s event to keep building on the momentum from years past. Also, do not forget our junior scholarship program for those that will be continuing their education after high school. To date, the support, and contributions to the scholarship fund by the membership has been nothing short of amazing. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship fund, we are always accepting contributions. We are off to a great start here in 2022! The ABHA is growing and the interest in our cattle is at an all-time high. More and more cattlemen are recognizing the undeniable attributes that our cattle have to offer the industry and their ranch’s bottom line. Please reach out if you have any questions or ideas for how we can continue to make a positive impact for the breed and this industry. We are all in this together, we will continue to work together to keep the ABHA strong, and American Black Hereford proud. We truly have some of the most dedicated, selfless people in the cattle business that support Black Hereford and its members. ABHA Spring 2022

ell spring is almost here. Thank the Lord. Even as I write this it is snowing to beat the band but supposed to be 70 degrees next week.

Rod Garman ABHA President ABHA Officers President: Rod Garman 497.957.2068 Vice President: Matt Marsh 912.425.0365 Treasurer: Don Hardin 515.313.8982 Secretary: Jacob Moreno 417.763.4233 Board Members: Darrell Selby 270.566.2624 Logan Hill 970.629.8807 Chad Jones 913-731-3428 Brock Johansen 435.749.1543 Jeremiah Malone 931.309.6805

It’s always easy to know when spring is close because we all start stressing if we have enough hay or not and telling ourselves I’m going to buy more next year or put more up! I have traveled several miles in the past few months going to many of the shows and sales. One thing that keeps me so impressed and motived to keep improving my own herd is the quality of animals that are in these shows and sales. They are better than they have ever been by far. And the prices these animals are bringing are top dollar. As I went and watched J&N and JM sales, I was amazed at what the bulls brought. J&N’s top seller brought $30,000 and didn’t even go to a ABHA member! That’s great. JM Cattle sale averaged over $5,000 per head. As I looked through the animals, they are the best they have ever been. Genetics, genetics, genetics is the reason these bulls are bringing what they are. When we breed better animals into our herds it will pay dividends in the long run. Quick update on our mission to fix our EPDs. I have appointed our executive committee and our chair of the breed improvement committee, Dirck Hoagland, to spearhead this project. They and the board are doing a great job and have spent countless hours back and forth with the folks doing our EPDs. As I said before and many of you know, this is an extremely important issue with most, but also an extremely difficult issue. But again, with your help as a breeder please turn in your data. Our biggest hurdle today is we need data. I will keep you posted through this process as we work diligently to fix the issue, so you as a breeder can have the tools to market your animals. It is our goal is to have new numbers out by July. We will keep our fingers crossed. Hope to see you all in Texas at the Southern Classic sale. Until next time may God bless you and the ABHA! ABHA

Springtime Vaccines: Tools for Healthy Summer Calves Russ Daly, SDSU Extension Veterinarian, State Public Health Veterinarian

B

randing season or pasture turnout is a natural time point that lends itself well to working calves and preparing them for the summer ahead.

These preparations typically include a vaccination protocol, meant to protect the animal against ailments they might encounter on summer pasture. A look into the display cooler of any food animal vet clinic will reveal a wide variety of products that could be used in a vaccine program. With timing, labor constraints, and the necessity for boosters, there are a lot of potential moving parts to any vaccine program.

Vaccine Program Considerations TALK TO YOUR VETERINARIAN.

There’s no one better to help a beef producer sort out all these moving parts than the local veterinarian. They have experience with and knowledge of the many different vaccines, as well as the disease issues in area herds. Prior to that veterinary consultation, it’s good for beef producers to first think about what calf health conditions are of most concern and whether a vaccine can help prevent those conditions.

TIMING IS CRITICAL.

Another important consideration is the age of the calf when vaccinated. Vaccines are not always able to stimulate the immune system of a very young calf. Calves, especially those under a month of age, have an immature mature set of immune cells and organs. It’s not that young calves won’t respond to vaccines at all, it’s just that the response will be weaker and more short-term. There are a few exceptions, however. Intranasal vaccines seem to work well in young calves, stimulating a good local response in the nasal passages as well as systemically. Clostridial vaccines also seem to garner a response in young calves. And calves older than 6 weeks can respond to certain modified live viral vaccines when subsequently challenged with those viruses.

READ LABELS THOROUGHLY.

Vaccine label instructions should be noted. Some vaccines, especially killed vaccines, require booster doses. Getting calves off pasture for a booster dose is a challenge for many producers. Does it do any good to give a calf the first dose if they can’t get the booster? We know that when booster doses are given according to label directions, the vaccine should perform as it did when the manufacturer gained its approval to be sold. Without booster doses, the immune response will not be as robust or long-lasting. Will one dose be enough? If exposure to the pathogen is limited, sometimes it might be.

Spring 2022

What Health Problems Can Vaccines Prevent?

So, what summer calf health problems might be prevented with help from vaccinations?

BLACKLEG

First on the list is blackleg. Blackleg is a widely distributed bacteria common in pasture soil, resulting in sudden death of well-doing calves. Vaccines protect well against blackleg, and calves going out to pasture should get blackleg vaccine, usually in the form of a “7-way” clostridial product.

PNEUMONIA

An increasing number of beef herds are detecting pneumonia in calves on summer pasture. In those herds, it makes sense to attempt to boost calf immunity against respiratory viruses such as IBR and BRSV that can set up severe bacterial pneumonia. When pneumonia cases have occurred in the past, giving calves an intranasal or a modified-live injectable vaccine against these pathogens is warranted. Herds that have had problems despite implementing these vaccines may consider vaccinating calves against bacteria such as Mannheimia or Pasteurella. Some producers use vaccines against Mycoplasma pneumonia, but there is very little evidence that these vaccines do much. Herds experiencing Mycoplasma pneumonia in calves on pasture likely have problems more profound than can be helped by vaccines.

PINKEYE

Pinkeye is another scourge that calves face on summer pasture. Many different pinkeye vaccines are available, as well as farm-specific versions. Herds with a history of pinkeye should consider vaccinating calves going out to pasture, but we know these products are very strain-specific and disappointing results are not uncommon.

ANTHRAX

In many South Dakota herds, anthrax is a constant threat. Although it’s rare for calves to be infected with anthrax compared to adult animals, the vaccine is safe and inexpensive for calves in anthrax areas.

The Bottom Line

Vaccines can be a valuable tool for cattle producers looking to help keep their calves healthy on summer pasture. Before making any changes to a vaccine program, it’s always best to run those ideas past your veterinarian, in order to make sure those products perform as well as possible. ABHA

Sherman Beef Cattle

S

herman Beef Cattle in central Pennsylvania is owned by Michael and Vanessa Sherman. Michael’s experience in the cattle industry is long and varied, giving him a unique perspective and desire to think outside of the box. “I have always had the “when you see everyone is turning right… don’t be afraid to be the one who turns left” mentality when it comes to our operation,” he said. The family farm was purchased by Michael’s grandfather in 1956 and began as a dairy. It had converted to a cash crop operation by the 1980’s which marketed a few beef cattle annually. Michael’s father Donald Sherman Jr. was instrumental in sustaining the family farm until he was able to purchase the farm from his grandparents in 2006. By then Michael had already been busy at work developing his program while attending Penn State University. While working towards his degree in Animal Science

14 The American Black Hereford

Spring 2022

in 1996 Michael purchased his first registered Hereford heifer. “It is hard to believe that a single purchase of a young heifer, DR Royal Nifty 121, would begin a series of events that enabled me to grow our operation into what it has become today,” Michael reflects. Sherman Beef Cattle purchased their first Black Herefords in 2018. “I had been searching approximately four years for phenotype and bloodlines that would complement our Hereford genetics prior to selecting a bull. I felt a calculated approach was necessary and ultimately enabled our operation to produce cattle with much higher marketability rather than just selecting any bull to turn our calves black,” he said. Michael places a high value on a base of quality Hereford genetics. “Beginning with the strongest Hereford genetics you can obtain is essential for producing quality Black Hereford cattle. Although homozygous black and high


percentages typically command the highest prices, structure and phenotype should not be compromised while making mating decisions. Single trait selection has been attempted numerous times by those no longer in the cattle business and does not make a comprehensive breeding plan for any successful operation.” Today the Shermans calve out approximately 30 Registered Hereford/ Black Hereford females annually. Most of the resulting offspring are sold as replacement heifers and breeding bulls at approximately one year of age. The top 25% of the calf crop are typically enrolled in performance testing programs. Michael primarily utilizes the Pennsylvania Livestock Evaluation Center for annual bull testing and heifer development. He has also tested bulls at the Midland Bull Test in Montana and the Wardensville Bull Test in West Virginia. Michael feels passionately about the benefits of performance testing saying, “Performance testing has been crucial to the success of our operation as it provides a benchmark to monitor genetic progress. I believe it holds us accountable for our breeding decisions as the information is 100% unfiltered and quantifiable. It offers an opportunity to make mating decisions based on verifiable and reliable data rather than relying on less predictable EPD’s with low accuracy values. By focusing on genotype AND phenotype, it has allowed us to create genetic packages that can flourish in a variety of production models suiting the needs of both commercial and seedstock breeders. The exposure we have received by releasing our test data on social media has enabled us to market our genetics to a national market.” Michael is also focused on changing with market demands, even during these crazy times. “As demand for premium locally produced beef has recently skyrocketed due to the pandemic, we have decided to incorporate GRF Sasian H08 ET into a portion of our breeding program for the 2022 breeding season. We believe this unique 100% fullblood Wagyu sire will allow us to produce high performance F1 cattle with superior carcasses that stand to capitalize on the Hereford/Angus genetic base that our Black Herefords currently possess,” he said. Along the way of Sherman Beef Cattle’s quest for excellence they have received numerous awards for their commitment to conservation including the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Farm Award, Pennsylvania Cattlemen’s

Environmental Stewardship Award and Lycoming County Conservation Cooperator of the Year Award. Additionally, the operation has been featured on national CRP video campaigns by the USDA and highlighted in educational material by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. But Michael is committed to more than just his operation, seeking to also serve his community. Michael is the boys’ varsity and junior high head soccer coach for Montgomery Area School District and a Regional Commissioner for Montgomery AYSO soccer program. He has received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for the last three years for his commitment to strengthen his community through volunteer service. Michael views the ABHA as a positive network for developing breeders. “The best asset our breed has to offer any incoming breeder would be the tremendous support network our breeders have developed. I am amazed how breeders can contact each other for the first time and within minutes feel like you have been lifelong friends. This is extremely rare in the cattle industry today. By viewing our “competition” as resources rather than threats, we have enabled our breed to make significant gains in our market share in a relatively short period of time. Take your time and do your research. Often excellent animals can be obtained from some of the most unlikely sources at a fraction of the cost for those willing to take the time to locate them,” he said. ABHA Spring 2022

Junior Corner By Laken Troup, Junior President & ABHA Queen

ABHA Members and breeders,

I

would like to thank each of you for the abundance of love and support you continue to show the youth in this breed. We are beyond excited to announce the theme of this year’s AJBHA Junior Nationals, as we will be near Nashville, we have decided the theme will be “Black Herefords Top the Charts.” We are beyond excited for these opportunities and can not wait to see the best and brightest youth in this association, we will continue to have a wide variety of contests and educational opportunities to grow the next generation of ABHA members. As we plan this event, we will soon be looking for sponsors which creates a great advertisement opportunity for breeders and ranchers. We will have our officers reach out to as many as possible and we will soon be posting on Facebook as well. Thank you once again for all of your support to our youth.ABHA

Defining a Breeding Season Written by Taylor Grussing and reviewed and updated bt Olivia Amundson, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist

B

reeding season will soon be around the corner for cow-calf operations. Many folks have considered moving the calving season in order to avoid the annual April blizzards in the Upper Midwest. While moving the calving season will not eliminate the unpredictability of weather, we can utilize a defined breeding season to plan when cows will calve and be better-able to manage cattle in the harsh winter and spring calving conditions. In 2016, the Iowa Beef Center collected data with the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service (USDA NASS) to quantify the factors that producers note regarding timing and intensity of calving seasons. Thirty one percent of respondents stated tradition dictated the timing of calving. Unfortunately, economic drivers of market timing and feed availability were only considered 16% and eight percent of the time, respectively. A majority of operations calving seasons were also influenced by weather (66%) and labor availability (34%). Calving season affects all other down-chain events on the operation, such as weaning and marketing, which can be difficult to change if facilities and repeat buyers are something you count on each year. So instead of changing the start of the calving season, perhaps it would be better to change the length of the calving season and managing time and labor more efficiently so there is an end in sight next calving season. Managing the length of calving season can have a large impact on the economic success of a cow-calf operation. A short calving season allows more-intense monitoring during calving, as well as produces a moreuniform, heavier calf to market. According to National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) data (2017), 31.7% of operations which manage 43.6% of the beef cows reported, had one defined breeding season, while 58.7 % of operations (41.6% of cows) have no set season.

Spring 2022

32.8% of operations had a breeding season less than 64 days. After calving, cows resume estrus cycles within 40 to 60 days postpartum. In order to maintain a yearly calving interval, we want cows to be bred within 80 days post calving. Therefore, during a 64-day breeding season, cattle have three opportunities to become bred (once every 21 days). With the use of estrous synchronization, producers can add an extra opportunity for cattle to be bred within the same 64 days. After 105 days, cattle would have five opportunities to be bred. A long calving season may get more cows bred, but those cows are also going to be long-term problem cows that will have a short postpartum period going into the next breeding season. The likelihood of becoming rebred will decrease. However, shortening the breeding season will help select cows with the best fertility and longevity that return the most value to the operation. Benchmark goals for breeding season pregnancy rates are to achieve 65% bred in the first 21 days of the season, with 90% and 95% of cows bred by days 42 and 64, respectively. Data from here in South Dakota shows cows that breed early in the season remain in the herd longer, as they continue to re-breed early each year (Kill et al., 2012). In addition, the South Dakota and U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (US MARC) data shows these early calving heifers return one extra calf in their lifetime compared to late-calving heifers due to added weaning weight. Not only does the length of the calving season affect marketing time and calf size, but it also affects cow and calf health protocols. At pasture turn out, young calves can’t receive the shots they need to increase immunity from disease in the summer and late-bred cows can’t be processed for prebreeding shots if they have not calved yet. Dedicating yourself to a short breeding season will not only increase the fertility level of the herd, it can also eliminate extra labor during the calving season. So, mark the date on the calendar and tell your family and friends so they can help remind you to pull the bulls from the pasture this year. ABHA
