Executive Summary more competitive and the motivation to gain market share is a must. As Black Hereford enthusiasts, we must strive for improvement to sustain and potentially grow our presence when these tougher conditions present themselves. We have to re-establish our identity and prove how we can help a rancher’s bottom-line. Having proof in black and white is what will be invaluable. Although our cattle have a lot of strengths, the ability of Black Herefords to compliment most of the US cowherd with added carcass cutability and feed efficiency are two of our major attributes that we are focused on. We can improve efficient production of the end product extremely well.

Ernie Dominguez ABHA Executive Director Welcome to the American Black Hereford Summer Issue! I hope this note finds all of you, your family, and cattle well. The weather has warmed up and rain has been scattered at best. I believe that as agriculturists we have a deeper appreciation for moisture and the weather than others. Despite the extremes through, the last few months of market trends, the witnessing of new growth with new crops, both animals and plants, gives us hope and something to look forward to. Planning for the future is key for long term sustainable success. The goals of your operation are primarily unique for your program, but the one thing that is not unique is how the mating decisions that you make today will impact your herd, our breed, and the beef industry for many years to come. It is crucial that we assess where we are and methodically think what it will take to reach where we want to be. Paying attention to the details…reproductive efficiency, udder and foot quality, respiratory health, performance and disposition. These are basic, but also the fundamentals that keep operations in business and moving in the right direction. A few of our focal points of our planning for the American Black Hereford is asking “How do we become more widely accepted in the beef industry?” “How do we increase demand for our breed?” In my time with the ABHA traveling and promoting the breed to the industry, our greatest hurdle to overcome is the lack of data to prove our story and back up our genetics. Ranchers still like to look at their cattle, but ultimately pounds and cow longevity is what hits the bottom line extremely hard. I think as we move forward, we must implement the reporting and use of all weights and records. Black Hereford cattle do a great job in many facets, we all know this, but to be truly considered by the industry we must be able to verify with data. W. Edwards Deming said, “Without data you are just another person with an opinion!” Whether we want to admit it or not, today’s ranchers have more technology and challenges at hand than ever before. Managing risks and improving predictability are a must if you want to stay in the business. This is where data or EPDs become vital. Just raising good cattle is not enough anymore. When things get tough and money is tighter, the market becomes 6

The information that comes into the Association must be directly linked to a registered animal before it has some working power. We all must make the most of the tools that are available and if we want to move forward it is imperative that we make calf and cowherd reporting along with the use of EPDs the pillars from which we build. Your ABHA board and staff have set some broad goals and we continue to set new ones as we work toward bringing more Black Hereford genetics into the mainstream of the beef cattle industry. As you all know, the beef industry is a very competitive market, and all the breeds are trying to establish their value and identity within this industry. We have analyzed where we are and have set initial goals to where we want to be. Let us all do our best to see our cattle thrive at the top of the charts. Speaking of “topping the charts”, the junior board and committee put together a top-notch Junior Nationals event in Lebanon, TN. It was a great time for fun, fellowship, and healthy competition. It was exciting to see both old and new faces. I’ll tell you; this junior’s group is stronger than ever and I’m confident we are in good hands going into the future. This is absolutely an event that I look forward to every year. You’ll read more about this year’s Junior Nationals event later in the magazine. There are many programs and events that rely on the membership’s involvement to be successful, and we would love to visit with you about them. There are so many ways we can support this breed, whether it’s testing and turning in more performance data, registering more cattle, supporting the AJBHA through fundraisers and sponsorships, or just simply attending ABHA events. Your support is what drives this breed forward and it is up to us all to keep the momentum rolling in the right direction! We have a lot to look forward to as we start moving into the second half of the calendar year. Our annual member meeting, A Royal Affair sale, and national show in October at the American Royal in Kansas City are all right around the corner. I hope you will make plans to join us in Kansas City! It will be a great opportunity for you to meet other ABHA members, share best practices and learn more about how to take advantage of all the ABHA has to offer. The ABHA continues to grow 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. ABHA

ummertime has made its way back around and it has managed to get hot overnight in most parts of the country. I hope all of you have had a good year so far and have lots of new calves on the ground. It is always exciting to see the new calf crop and watch them grow into the animals that we had hoped for. I’m sure most of you are in the hay fields just like we are here at Ground Zero Farms and wishing we could have afforded to pour a little more money into fertilizing our hay fields. The price of $1,000 plus a ton for fertilizer isn’t exactly efficient. So, we will let things fall as they may. Welcome to the world of farming! On a positive note, our ABHA world is looking great. Many of you may have read our latest update Ernie had mailed out a month ago. We are working on several major projects. First, is the EPDs. As I’m typing this letter, we are three short days away from having the first peek of a new run. I know it seems like it has taken a long time, but this is a very complicated task. However, it needs to be the best it can be. As I have said before, I know it will require some work and will be work in progress, but EPDs will be much more to everyone’s liking than what it is today. I believe they should be a tool for every breeder no matter the breeding program you have. No matter breeding black to black or red to black or F1s. Next thing is our financials. I want to personally thank Dan Hardin, ABHA Treasurer, for all the time and effort he spends continuously working the ABHA books. I am excited to say we are going to end our fiscal year north of $50,000 and very likely near $70,000. That should make all of us proud to see everyone’s hard work paying off. The finance committee goes over every invoice before moving it on to the accountant to be paid. So, checks, balances, and transparency are high. Every month financials go to the board for approval. I appreciate each of you as members doing your part. In result, our registrations and transfers are up 12%, membership is up 11%, sales profit is up 15,000, and DNA testing up 63%. This year, 2022, is going to be a record year! These numbers and statistics wouldn’t be possible without each of you. Thank you! As I’m typing this letter to you my bags are packed to head to Lebanon, Tennessee for our 2022 Junior Nationals. If you know my wife, Jamie, and I, we have a soft spot for kids and youth involvement. It is always so good to know that we have our youth involved in the ABHA because there will be a day when we hand over the reins. It is so nice to watch and know that we have such a great group of young people coming up. We have over 75 entries in Jr. Nationals this year – that is a record number by far! That only means our juniors are loving what they are doing. That brings me to say, I want to say a big thank you to all our sponsors this year that came out to support the juniors and show them you care. This year we will see the most money given for scholarships EVER for the ABHA. That is because of your great support to our ABHA kids. Train up a child in the way he shall go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. The Lord knows our youth today need a positive influence and positive things to do. Again, thank you for supporting our youth, which is our future for tomorrow. There are more exciting things to talk about and things the board is working diligently to accomplish. Between now and the Annual Member meeting, we will be bringing those things to you. Remember to save the date of Saturday, October 8th in Kansas City - our Annual Member meeting and sale. You do not want to miss this year! Also, Sunday October 9th is the ABHA American Royal Open show. Be there and bring your top animal to the sale and or show. The ABHA sale topped all other breed sales at the Royal last year. So, let’s do even better this year. Your brand might be on the next high seller. Last year’s average was over $8,000 per live lot with the top selling lot being $19,000. I believe this year will be even better. Until next time, may God send the rain when needed and bless the ABHA members as we bless him.

T

he ABHA Junior Nationals was held June 22-25 at the James E. Ward Agriculture Center in Lebanon, TN where approximately 33 exhibitors from 13 different states exhibited 70 head of cattle. The Junior Nationals event offered five contests to equip members with tools they can use in the show ring as well as future career success. In addition to the contests, there were interviews for scholarships, Queen, Princess, and Board of Directors candidates.

Junior Board of Directors also include Kolten Jenkins, Dale, IN; Laken Troup, Milton, FL; McKay Grohman, Abingdon, IL; Lane Schluterman, Ozark, AR; Jack Schroeder, Hughesville, MO; and Emily Tabor, Garfield, KY.

The event was kicked off on Thursday morning with opening ceremonies by ABHA Executive Director Ernie Dominguez, followed by an AJBHA annual meeting, and an afternoon full of nutrition, fitting and showmanship clinics. Friday was packed with individual sales, judging, fitting and showmanship contests. The day was capped off with an awards banquet that recognized the winners from the contests, along with the announcement of our scholarship winners and the crowning of the AJBHA Queen and Princesses. During the banquet a silent auction was also held from items donated by ABHA members, juniors and all the proceeds went to support the Association’s Junior program. Scholarships were awarded to five AJBHA members, totaling $15,000 – the most ever awarded by the Association!

The Junior Committee did a fantastic job in planning the event this year. The ABHA and AJBHA would like to thank all the breeders, members, parents, sponsors, and supporters that made this event possible. With your continued support, the ABHA will be able to continue this wonderful event each year and provide valuable opportunities for AJBHA youth to connect with each other and secure the future of this amazing breed.

At the Juniors annual meeting, they elected new officers and members to the Board of Directors. Junior Board members serve a two-year term. During the meeting the new officers for the year were also elected to serve one-year terms.

On Saturday, the Junior Nationals event culminated with the Owned and Bred & Owned cow-calf pair, heifer, bull and steer shows.

The AJBHA leadership team has hit the ground running to plan new opportunities for our youth and breeders. They are beyond grateful for all the support received, and they are excited to serve our members on a new level this year. The ABHA would also like to thank all the members that attended and worked so hard while at the event to help make everything run smooth and be successful. The success of this event is a great testimony of ABHA members working together for one common purpose. These juniors are the future of our breed and as adult members, we should be very proud of the accomplishments that they have made. Save the date for next year’s Junior Nationals event! The event will take place June 14-17, 2023, at the Hyder-Burks Agriculture Pavilion at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN. The facility is climate controlled, so we are looking forward to a much cooler location next year! ABHA

Whiskey Jack Black Herefords

W

hiskey Jack Black Herefords is one of a small number of Black Hereford breeders in Canada. Nestled in the beautiful Peace River Country, about 544 km North of Edmonton Alberta Canada, situated outside a small hamlet called Whitelaw, the operation would seem quite far north for some. In fact, Whiskey Jack is far enough north to experience big weather swings including everything from +35ºC to -48ºC (that’s 95ºF - -49ºF for those state side). Owned and operated by the Kuriga family, Whiskey Jack Black Herefords have been breaking ground on breed acceptance and growth in Canada since 2018.

farm was originally built in 1977 by Darcy’s father, John Kuriga who had a small mixed herd of Hereford influenced cattle. John passed in 1988 leaving the farming operation to Darcy and his mother at the time. Darcy has carried on with the farm since then increasing the initial small herd of 10 cows to over 140 today. “My husband and I are second generation farmers; our boys will be third. Family history shows that there have always been cattle on this land. We have had almost every breed of bull there is from Guernsey to Shorthorn, Salers, Simmental, Charolais, Gelbvieh, Galloway and Limousine, but have always come back to Herefords,” said Tamara.

The heart of the operation lies in the Kuriga Family; Darcy and Tamara and their two children; 13-year-old John and 10-year-old Wyatt, along with Jimmy, the Collie dog who Tamara describes as the cow boss. The

Recently the Kuriga’s have diversified their operation a bit, adding in some grain production. Most of the cereal production consists of barley and oats. Much of their grain goes to sale, while some is baled; oats for

yellow feed and barley straw for bedding. They also have a small number of meat pigs that they both sell and use for their own consumption. Prior to diving into registered Black Herefords Tamara had known she had an interest in seedstock production. Tamara describes taking the leap into the business saying, “From 2006-2018 I held a position at the local Veterinary clinic as a Registered Veterinary Technologist, focused primarily on cattle. My husband is a Heavy-Duty Mechanic that works off the farm much of the time. I resigned in 2018 and decided to put more into the farm and try to get more out of the cows that we were raising. Raising seedstock was always a long-term goal of mine, so when I resigned from clinical practice in ’18 we decided that maybe that would be a new step in a big direction for me. I’m going to give my husband all the credit for this move. When he said, “maybe it’s time you start raising your bulls like you planned,” I said “ok, I’ll start looking for some good Hereford cows.” He said, “Why don’t you go get some Black Herefords instead, there’s 100 Hereford breeders around here, you might as well try something different.” And that’s exactly what they did. In 2018 with 50 head of commercial Hereford and Simmental cattle they purchased a small group of F1 heifers (Tamara’s favorite group to this day) and a group of registered red Hereford cows. From there they joined the ABHA and the Canadian Hereford Association. They began importing semen as well as a bull, many of which have potential of being Homozygous black and polled. “I’ve spoken with so many great farmers and ranchers State side (you know who you guys are) and without their help and direction into these cattle I don’t know if we would have made it out of the chute the first year,” says Tamara. Today the Kuriga’s have built the Black Hereford herd up to 30 producing females and 100 plus commercial cows. “Every year so far my bull development pens have been sold out by November. We start calving in January, so the demand for the bulls is there. People are starting to open their eyes and see what hybrid vigor and a black hide can do for them,” said Tamara. As a trailblazer in Canadian Black Herefords Tamara has experienced both acceptance and pushback. “I have found that the people that are open to the idea of something new really like the breed, and I have some people that are

die hard against them because they are not traditional looking Herefords, and they are willing to express these feelings of dislike. However, we started into them still relatively early here in Alberta,” she said. Tamara sees a lot of future potential for Black Hereford growth in the current acceptance of F1 bulls. “That’s a start, and a big step for producers and Black Hereford breeders here,” she said. The Kuriga’s have also seen what the breed can do for their own commercial calves and bottom line. “We have been cross breeding them into our commercial herd as well these last couple years and it has made a big difference at the fall auction on the calves. Normally calves with a feather neck are going to be 10-15 cents behind anything with a black hide. But these black Hereford cross calves have been doing much better, and bring a better dollar as long as they are black,” she said. Tamara’s advice to new breeders, “Do some research! Lots of it!” she said, adding that “In Canada there aren’t a lot to choose from so picking should be relatively easy. Our first year we made a lot of mistakes and assumptions that set us back, but like with any new adventure we learned from it and made changes to improve the following year. I have found that this breed is very versatile, if you can’t find that perfect breeding that you want you can always start from scratch. Get the cow families that you want. Artificial insemination and embryo transfer are an excellent way to keep your costs a bit lower and have the animals that you desire without breaking the bank on a fancy bull if you only have a couple cows,” she said.

Watch for Heat Stress, Summer Pneumonia in Beef Cattle North Dakota State University Extension

S

ummers usually are mild in North Dakota, compared with the southern states, but hot, humid days do occur in North Dakota and can be dangerous and even deadly for cattle. “The combination of heat and humidity creates stress on livestock because respiration is the predominate route for cooling,” says Karl Hoppe, Extension livestock systems specialist at North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center. “Once cattle start to pant, some heat stress has occurred.” Keeping the internal body temperature at normal is possible with panting and adequate shade and water. Sometimes cattle will stand in ponds to cool off on a hot day. Bison also will wade into water to cool off on a hot summer day. “Healthy cattle can handle some heat stress,” says Gerald Stokka, NDSU Extension veterinarian and livestock stewardship specialist. “However, too much heat, along with high humidity, can result in excessive heat stress, leading to death. Cattle can get relief from heat stress when the nights are cool. Night cooling for beef cattle occurs when the nighttime temperature falls below 72 degrees.” Producers also should be aware of the increased risk of “summer pneumonia” in suckling calves following heat stress. An increased respiratory rate, along with the stress of heat, may overwhelm the natural defense mechanisms of the lungs. In calves that may be compromised due to inadequate intake and absorption of immunity (colostrum) from the dam, the risk is even greater. Calves that develop pneumonia may not be discovered until too late in the course of the disease. Early signs may be calves off by themselves, dams with full udders, a drooped ear and rapid respiration. Adult cattle and yearlings that have experienced respiratory disease early in life or postweaning may have decreased lung capacity and will be at a greater risk of heat stress. “Cattle that have damaged lungs due to pneumonia may die on the first moderately warm day,” Stokka says. He urges producers to consult with their veterinarian for confirmation of the heat stress diagnosis and for treatment options. Night cooling allows the animal to cool off and get relief from heat stress. When night cooling doesn’t exist, cattle have a difficult time handling the heat stress the next day. “Usually, healthy cattle won’t die from heat stress on the first hot day,” Hoppe notes. “Cumulative days of heat stress without night cooling

physiologically challenge cattle. After three days, some cattle can’t handle the heat and humidity and die.” Brahma and brahma-crossbred cattle are more tolerant to elevated heat and humidity. Bos indicus breeds (Brahma crosses) often are included in the cow herd breeding program in southern states. For northern cattle, reducing heat stress includes providing drinking water in adequate amounts and access to the water. Provide at least 2 inches of water per trough space per head. Providing shade also will help cattle reduce elevated body temperatures. Cattle will seek windy locations, wet places to stand, or ponds to wade in to help cool off. Cattle with dark hides tend to show heat stress and have higher internal body temperature than cattle with lighter-colored hide. For feedlot cattle, moving feeding time to later afternoon or evening will help reduce heat stress. Several hours after consuming a meal, the fermentation and digestion of feed creates heat. By feeding later in the day, the heat produced from digestion will develop during the night and not add to the daytime heat stress. Usually, the fatter the cattle, the more difficulty in handling heat stress, Stokka says. Heat stress can be forecast and is based on temperature, wind speed, humidity and solar radiation. The National Weather Service and U.S. Department of Agriculture have a heat stress forecast website at https:// tinyurl.com/HeatStressForecaster. When heat stress is anticipated, cooling the ground may help. This can be done by putting water on the pen surface and/or adding bedding to change the pen’s surface color, which normally is black. Wetting the bedding also may help. Using sprinklers or fire hoses to cool cattle that already are panting isn’t a good practice, Hoppe says. Spraying water onto the cattle raises the humidity and can increase heat stress. However, when cattle are in severe heat stress, soaking the animals with water may be necessary for their survival. Cattle are at danger of death from heat exposure when: • The heat index is 75 or greater for a 72-hour period • The heat index during a 48-hour period is not lower than 79 during the day and not lower than 75 during the night • The daytime heat index reaches 84 or higher for two consecutive days For more information, see the NDSU Extension publication “Dealing With Heat Stress in Beef Cattle Operations” at https://tinyurl.com/ HeatStressinCattle.ABHA

ow! What a privilege it is to introduce myself as your AJBHA President. I hope everyone is having an amazing summer. Junior Nationals really did “Top the Charts” this year with the largest turn out yet, with over 70 calves and close to 30 juniors participating in the show and contests. One thing I absolutely love about this breed is no matter what show or event you attend you’re treated like family by the members. As I walked the barns I noticed just how close everyone is, from unloading the trailer to washing calves, there is always someone lending a hand. I hope I can be of assistance to anyone with new ideas or suggestions. Feel free to contact me at colt.2004thomas@gmail.com.ABHA
