Executive Summary Welcome to the American Black Hereford Winter Issue!

E

ven as we continue to face uncertain times in our country and more importantly in agriculture, the future within the American Black Hereford breed is bright. As we get set to close out 2021 and look forward to 2022, it is important to reflect on how Black Hereford cattle have improved not only in quality, but in demand and industry acceptance. The message of crossbreeding within the beef industry continues to be strong, and the use of Black Hereford genetics is proving to be economically advantageous to producers across the country.

The American Black Hereford

Your American Black Hereford Association is going to close out another great year in calendar year 2021. The ABHA is growing in membership and registrations while marketing cattle to more commercial producers. The success of this association is due to the hard work and dedication by our members to improving genetics and making the necessary changes that the beef industry has demanded. Our membership is working hard to keep Black Hereford cattle at the forefront of the industry demands and is willing to make difficult decisions in order to continue growth and success. In the coming years, our challenge to keep demand strong will increase as we gain more market share. We must continue to make advancements in our genetics to improve our position in the industry, and I know we are up to the challenge. We’re deep into sale season and the demand for Black Hereford genetics is overwhelmingly high. As demand continues to grow, the board is looking into additional ways for breeders to market their cattle, grow their customer base and broaden the footprint of our breed. As our breed continues to grow and more people become involved, we must not forget that many of us were once in their shoes. Lend a helping hand or some words of encouragement to those new folks and embrace their successes as you would your own. Each member matters just as much as the next and every member is important to the success of this breed. I encourage everyone to get involved at your local, regional, and state cattle organizations. Your input and representation will only increase the American Black Hereford footprint and will help steer more commercial producers to consider using Black Hereford genetics. As we continue to grow in both size and demand for Black Hereford genetics, we need everyone working together to continue to make advancements. We look forward to the new year with great anticipation of growth and demand for Black Hereford cattle and want every one of our members to help and be a part of this growth! In addition to reflecting, it’s also important to give thanks. I want to thank our Board of Directors, our committees, and the entire membership for helping make 2021 a tremendous year for our association. The American Black Hereford breed is on fire! Let’s not even think about getting complacent, because we are just getting started. I want each one of you to pull your hat down tight and kick it in overdrive. Continue to make your cattle better and help push our breed to the next level. Let’s continue the ride! Serving with this board over the last year has been an eye-opening experience for me (in a good way!). There’s been a lot of discussion monthly at board meetings and in regular everyday conversations because we are collectively working to build a better future for our cattle, our members, and most importantly, our youth. 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. We are kicking off 2022 at the Cattlemen’s Congress in Oklahoma City! There were over 9,000 head of cattle entered at this year’s Congress and for the first time, American Black Hereford cattle will be on display and exhibited by fellow members of the ABHA. I hope to see you in OKC! Let’s show the industry what the American Black Hereford has to offer. Have a blessed start to the New Year! ABHA

President Report Dear Fellow Breeders,

I

want to first say it is a great honor to be your President this year and to work with Ernie and this board. Both are huge assets to the ABHA. I have had the privilege to be a part of the ABHA for several years now. Being a part of different committees and the board throughout the years, I have seen the good times and the hard times. The times of planting and the times of growing and the blessings and pains of each. When I was asked to take this position, I began to think of where we were as an association 20 years ago versus where we are today and where we want to be 20 years from now.

Rod Garman ABHA President

We have had several great leaders throughout the years that we must thank for getting us to the place we are today. If it wasn’t for them where would we be? So, thank you! As I began to think and talk to our members about the biggest and most important things we need to see accomplished, two things came up in most conversations. One is uniting us back together as one and two, help our EPDs. I’m going to comment on the latter first. I don’t think there has been a board meeting where this topic hasn’t come up and I believe the board understands there is room for improvement. We have had several meetings and more scheduled with different people that understand this issue and will hopefully help us down the path to get to where we all want and need to be. As I listen in on all the discussions of this very complex issue, I realize it is not an easy fix and it will take some time for us to get there. But, as your President, I can give you my word as we work through this, I’m looking to make sure no matter if you raise 1,000 head or 5 head; no matter if you breed predominantly black on black, red to black, or F1s; your EPDs will be as accurate as possible. Again, this will take time, so please be patient and please do your part and send in your data. The single most important thing you can do to help is to send in your data. First and foremost, and I believe is the most important, is for us to be united together as Americans, cattlemen, and as ABHA breeders and members. As I said before, I have seen it all throughout the years at the ABHA. I have seen the good times and I have seen the bad. I have seen the splits and the coming together. I believe the point where we are today is we have come together. We are now one again. Throughout the years I have seen many businesses, families, churches, and associations fail because of division. As the word says, a house divided will fall, but together we will stand. I want to help bring us together as an association. I believe we all have the same dreams and vision and that is to raise, own, and sell better animals. The vehicle we use to get there will vary between us all, but we all are headed to the same destination. So, no matter how many you have, how you breed, or what you think is the best for your operation, we are all still headed toward the same goal. It was great to see everyone in Kansas City, Louisville, Oklahoma City and all the sales. It was great to see how well our breed is expanding and to see the value of our cattle getting higher. The quality is by far the best it has ever been. Remember this, if we are not growing, we are dying. So, let’s all grow together. Until next time may God’s hand be over us and the ABHA. ABHA

Is It Spring Yet? Aaron Schroeder, Missouri Meadows

The higher ACC level of Sire B simply means that there is a lower risk of change in the value of that EPD. This is where the term “true EPD range” comes into play. For example, Sire B, who has an EPD score of 0.0, may have true EPD range varying from a score of -1.0 to +1.0 (giving a 1 point deviation to either side of his EPD) since his ACC level is .75. Sire A, who has an EPD score of -2.0, may have a true EPD range of -4.0 to 0.0 (giving a 2 point deviation to either side of his EPD) since his ACC level is .25.

W

hen trapped inside during the winter months, one of my favorite pastimes is surfing the internet to study all things cattle related. Like many others, I like to glance over my favorite cattle forums, peruse back issues of online magazines, and read material presented at various conferences. Also like many others, I spend a lot of time studying bulls. I think contemplating future breeding decisions is a symptom of spring fever and studying bulls can be extremely therapeutic or (depending on the amount of time spent) a sign of needing therapy. Studying bulls, with the use of the internet, can send a person down a lot of rabbit holes. Things you can look up include pedigrees, pictures, and epds, just to name a few. If that was not enough, you can then spend time on how to interpret the information you have found and naturally, you can also find what everyone else’s opinions are about the information you have found. For many years, a recurring theme I have found in forums, discussion boards, social media and at the local cafe revolves around EPD’s and their accuracy. Keep in mind, this is NOT a discussion about whether or not EPD’s themselves are an accurate tool or whether or not they should be used, though that is a very common theme found on the internet as well. This is a discussion about the accuracy ratings that are given with EPD’s. I know many people who refuse to breed their heifers to a bull that does not have a high level of accuracy (ACC) associated with their birth weight (BW) EPD. For example, if given two sires where Sire A has a BW EPD of -2.0 (ACC .25) and Sire B has a BW EPD of 0.0 (ACC .75) they would choose Sire B simply because of the accuracy level that is associated with their EPD. Accuracy is certainly important and something that we need to strive for but we need to understand what that ACC stands for. An EPD’s ACC is simply a representation of how much data has been collected on that individual. In the case of the aforementioned Sire B, the data may include genomic testing along with the data of 100 calves he has sired across multiple herds. Sire A may have undergone the exact same genomic testing but has only sired 20 calves in one herd. This gives Sire B a higher ACC because more data has been submitted with that sire. In short, ACC is a level of confidence placed behind that EPD. It is not a representation of the precision of that EPD.

Does this mean there will be a larger spread of weights of the calves from Sire A? No. In actuality, the variance of weights among calves sired by Sire B will be the same variance of weights among calves sired by Sire A. The difference is that without sufficient data, we do not know what the true average of Sire A’s calves is yet so he has a larger EPD range. As more data is collected on both of the sires, their ACC will continue to increase and the true EPD range will narrow in its scope. In time we may find that both sires have a true BW EPD of -1.0 as that score is within the range of possibilities for both bulls. So what is the moral of the story? First and foremost, I think it is important to reiterate that high accuracy bulls will have calves just as variable as low accuracy bulls and that is to be expected. Accuracy and precision are not the same. Second, if your bull has a less than desirable BW EPD, it does not mean that their EPD is bogus. It may mean that the true EPD range of that bull is still very large. What is the ACC of that EPD? How much data have you submitted? Is your data submitted in a timely manner? Remember, it is possible that the true EPD range of your bull will shift, adjust, or narrow in scope as more data is submitted. Now back to the start….trapped inside…nothing to do. Time to study bulls? Not yet. Remember, this is to be a fun pastime that is therapeutic, not one that causes the need of therapy by spending hours and hours going down rabbit holes. Before you even look at EPD’s, determine what your needs and goals are. That should shorten the amount of time you spend studying bulls, right? Do you even need to focus on BW EPD’s? Do you have heifers to breed? Do you have a history of dystocia problems in your herd? Remember, single trait selection sometimes means you are sacrificing other desirable traits. Wait! There is another rabbit hole. Is it Spring yet? ABHA

Wolf Black Herefords

G

enerational agriculture has long been the backbone of the nation, and the third generation Wolf family in Marysville, Missouri is certainly a contributor to that legacy.

Raising Registered Black Herefords and a few commercial cows on their family farm, Jonathon and Tiffany Wolf and their family, and Mike and Carol Wolf have spent the last few years intent on growing their Black Hereford program, which they began in 2015. “We wanted something that we could do as a family and that the kids could help with. The gentleness and disposition of the Black Hereford drew us to them. We got started in the breed due to the guidance and helpfulness of Chad Jones and Crescent Hill Black Herefords,” they said. Starting out with five registered heifers and one bull purchased from Crescent Hill Black Herefords, Wolf Black Herefords has grown into about 20 cows and heifers and three bulls.

12 The American Black Hereford

Winter 2022

The Wolfs know that ranching is about more than the cattle they produce, setting the farm up on an intensive rotational grazing plan. “We focus just as much attention on the grass as we do the cattle,” they said. Their set up includes three farms, one set up with rotational grazing and waterers and a goal of establishing the other two farms in a rotational grazing pattern, focusing on the grass and soil to better the herd. “In doing this, we are trying to set the farms up for our children, which are the future of farming,” they said. Their experience growing their small family operation has taught them not to fear asking questions and getting advice. “Don’t be afraid to contact established breeders and ask questions. Don’t be afraid to establish relationships with other breeders,” they said. ABHA

Calving Ease Cows - Optimal or Extreme Finding a balance with calving ease Beef Improvement Federation

T

he questions, “Will easy calves grow into cows that have more calving difficulty?” and “Will calves from easy cows have higher mortality?” prompted the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC) research on calving ease cows. Dr. Gary Bennett, from USMARC, presented their findings at the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Symposium in Des Moines, Iowa, June 23. Nearly 900 animals across four breeds (Angus, Charolais, Gelbvieh and Hereford) and three composites (MARC I, II and III) were studied. Concerns surrounding calving difficulty of cows that were easy calves is legitimate, due to the negative correlation between direct and maternal calving ease. Higher mortality of easy calves is also a valid question since easy calves tend to be smaller, and small calves have a higher rate of mortality. What the study found, however, was that selection on calving ease may reduce duration of labor and result in a more vigorous calf regardless of birth weight. “Genetically smaller calves might not be at a disadvantage unlike phenotypically smaller calves,” Bennett says.

Selection on calving ease only decreased gestation length by about two days in the USMARC study. Bennett explains an expected progeny difference (EPD) for calving ease using gestation length could decrease gestation below optimal viability, but was not evident during this study. Additionally, contrary to prior beliefs, the USMARC researchers did not find that calving difficulty reduced rebreeding of heifers in this study. The study found that cows from the calving ease selection line had significantly smaller mature weights and heights and may have smaller maintenance costs on a per cow basis. Calving ease heifers had better calf survival and were more likely to rebreed and produce a second calf when compared to their control counterparts. There was an apparent advantage for a system of mating calving ease females to calving ease bulls for first calving compared to control females bred to average birth weight bulls.

Gene Editing in Today’s Beef Industry and the Future Beef Improvement Federation

T

he United States produces 18% of the world’s beef with 6% of the world’s cattle. That’s why genetics are important,” said Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam, Professor of Cooperative Extension in Animal Genomics and Biotechnology at the University of California, Davis. Van Eenennaam gave her presentation titled “Gene Editing Today and in the Future” during the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Symposium June 24 in Des Moines, Iowa. Van Eenennaam explained the concepts of introducing editing components into the genome. Genetic engineering vs gene editing

the distinguishing factors between genetic engineering and genome editing.” Gene editing technologies Van Eenennaam explained that gene editing will be able to introduce useful alleles without linkage drag and potentially bring in useful novel genetic variation from other breeds. There are various advantages and disadvantages of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) cloning to produce an animal carrying a targeted genome edit. Advantages include germline transmission, confirmed genotype with higher knock-in efficiency in somatic cells. Disadvantages are very low cloning efficiencies, use of a single cell line and not all cell lines clone well.

The 2009 sequencing of the bovine genome allowed for the development of a 50,000 SNP chip, also known as the 50K. Very rapidly adopted by the global cattle breeding community, the genomic test result is incorporated in the genomic-enhanced expected progeny difference (GE-EPD) as an additional data source. GEEPDs are made up of the animal’s pedigree, performance, progeny and genomic test result. This technology has evolved greatly since 2010 when DNA information competed with EPDs. According to Van Eenennaam genome editing allows the introduction of double strand breaks at a specific sequence in the genome. “Genetic engineering, or GMOs, to use the more controversial term, is basically introducing a trait to a breeding program that brings a useful characteristic along,” she explained. “The difference with genome editing is you can very precisely target any location in the genome for the introduction of a new gene or also just tweaking the DNA within an animal. It is that precision that is kind of new with genome editing, which opens up opportunities to very precisely inactivate genes in the genome without necessarily introducing ‘transgenic’ or ‘exogenous DNA’ from another species. This is one of 26 The American Black Hereford

Van Eenennaam also explained that cytoplasmic injection (CPI) of editing reagents into embryos has multiple advantages and disadvantages. Advantages include no cloning artifacts, diversity of germplasm, and a high efficiency for gene knock-outs. Disadvantages of this technology are mosaicism (more than one genotype in an individual), variable rates of obtaining an edited genome in calves born, and gene knock-in is less efficient in early embryos. “I envision gene editing impacting breed associations and future genetic evaluation by offering an opportunity to repair deleterious genetic conditions, and an opportunity to introduce useful alleles into breed germplasm It is currently primarily used for single gene or Mendelian traits, and it could potentially be used to alter a defining characteristic of a breed,” Van Eenennaam said.
