Get the factsheet on plant growth regulators The new factsheet Plant Growth Regulators: What Agronomists Need to Know, is now available through Alberta Forestry and Agriculture (AF). Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are synthetic compounds that can modify plant growth and development by altering plant hormonal activity. While PGRs are popular in other regions of the world like Western Europe, their use in Western Canada is relatively new. “The plant growth regulators that we are interested in western Canadian cereal production are the ones that produce shorter stems that reduce lodging and to maintain grain yield and some of the harvesting headaches that come along with lodging,” says Sheri Strydhorst, agronomy research scientist with AF. “Lodging is a major production constraint in high yield environments in Alberta, particularly the irrigated areas or any areas where they’re pushing fertility and have good moisture conditions.” The factsheet looks at how PGRs perform on different crop species and different crop cultivars. It also goes into some of the plant physiology, and how PGRs change that to achieve shorter crops.

“Crop staging is absolutely critical with plant growth regulators,” mentions Strydhorst. “So this factsheet gives a guide for growers and agronomists as to what those growth stages are so that they can be applied properly.” The factsheet also touches on is why PGRs are not used on bigger acres in Western Canada. It includes information about Ethrel and Manipulator, and the registration status of a new plant growth regulator coming down the pipeline. “This factsheet is one of those tools to give growers and agronomists some of that knowledge and help them be more confident in their use of plant growth regulators,” Strydhorst adds. Sheri Strydhorst coauthored the factsheet with Linda Hall from the University of Alberta and Laurel Perrott from Lakeland College. To view a listing of all the crops publications click here. Hard copies of the factsheets are available to Alberta residents by using the online order form or by calling 780-4270391.

BULLS FOR SALE PRIVATELY ON THE FARM

BAILEY

DUSTY ACRE CLAIRE 584C

EARL

Bailey is another home raised 4-H calf born April 24, 2017. Her weight on Feb. 1 ,2018 was 820lbs. Kaylyn has not made up her mind yet if she will sell her on Achievement Day or not.

Claire is a home raised cow of my daughter that she is using for her 4-H cow/calf project this year. As a two year old we weighed her this fall and she weighed in at 1410lbs. Claire and Egil have the same sire.

Earl was born March 30, 2017. He is Kaylyn’s steer 4-H project this year. On Feb. 1. 2018 he weighed in at 1009 lbs. He will be sold on June 16, 2018 at the Groundbirch 4-H Multi Club Achievement Day.

DUSTY ACRE ELIJAH

PKF PAINTED CHET 13E

DUSTY ACRE EDRIC

Born March 29, 2017 BW 82 lbs AWW 710 lbs Weight on Feb., 12, 2018 was 1010lbs On home test his ADG was 3.76 lbs EPD’s… ABC CE 88 BW 91 WG 58 Milk 64 PWG 44 YG 91

Born March 25, 2017 BW 95lbs AWW 699lbs ADG 3.59lbs on home test Weight on Feb. 12, 2018; 1080lbs

Elijah is a double polled bull with lots of top on him. He is another one that I wouldn’t hesitate to run with the heifers. He comes from low birth weight parents with good growth. His ADG is 3.71 and he shows he has lots of gain to pass onto his offspring.

Chet’s sire and his dam is 94% blonde and the rest is red angus. We decided to keep him and his dam always brings a beautiful calf every fall. He is broke to lead as my daughter wanted to show him at the fall fair this year but our year is looking pretty busy so we decided to put him up for sale. He had his horns surgically removed at the vet clinic last fall. He is a little shorter than the others in the pen but has lots of width and depth. Right from a calf he has always been curious about what’s going on. Quite often you will catch him looking between the boards on the fence because he just has to know what’s going on.

Achievement Day, June 16, 2018 at the fair grounds in Dawson Creek starting at 9:30 am, Buyers Supper at 5:00 pm and the sale to start around 6:00 pm at VJV

DUSTY ACRE EJIL

Born April 3, 2017 BW 86lbs AWW 748lbs Weight on Feb 12, 2018 1044lbs ADG 3.52lbs on home test. EPD’s ABC CE 6.5 BW- 6.4 WG 59 Milk 29 PWG 21 YG 80 %wb CE 99 BW 99 WG 99 Milk 96 PWG 90 YG 98

I cannot say enough about this guy. He has everything in one complete package from high calving ease to top growth. His sire had 65 calves and I only had to help one heifer as the one leg was back a little. His dam has a nice utter, good feet and is one of my top producing cows in the blonde herd. She had a bull calf named Dusty Acre Brass which was homozygous and I have sold his semen to two different farms in Australia. Ejil is in the top 1% within his breed for his CE, BW, and WG. He is a very smooth moving bull with lots of growth left in him. If I could keep this guy I wouldn’t hesitate to run him with my heifers.

Born April 4, 2017 BW 91lbs AWW 709 lbs ADG 3.88 lbs on home test Weight on Feb 12, 2018 1036lbs EPDs…ABC CE-1 BW-.2 WG 53 Milk 29 PWG 15 YG 68 %wb CE BW 48 WG 96 Milk 96 PWG 73 YG 92

Edric is our top gaining bull this year. He has amazed me with how he has caught and passed the other guys in the pen. He really is coming into his own look these last few months. He is long and has a wide top line with legs to grow into. He will be sold as a cow only bull.

ALSO ON OFFER

Five two year olds; two are homozygous polled and the other three are double polled. The two year olds are being sold as cow only breeding. Their birth weights are all in the 90 lbs range. The two year olds have been grain fed for about a month now. The yearling bulls will be tested for homozygous polled but I think they are all double polled. The yearling bulls will be done the bull test on March 12 and semen testing will be closer to the end of March. You are more than welcome to come and look at the bulls we have set up for sale. We will have some bulls at the Last Chance Bull Sale in May at VJV Dawson Creek.

54 The Northern Horizon, Bull Sale Feature March 2, 2018

Old hat chats and new single for Davidson When I catch up with Dan Davidson, he’s playing Daddy Duty at home. Since our last chat prior to the DC exhibition, Davidson has picked up a boatload of hardware in Alberta, dropped an EP and now in 2018, pushes a brand-new single as he tours across Canada in support of Brett Kissel. “It is awesome to pick up some recognition,” says Davidson. “It is not something you count on or expect, and I’m not here to win awards, but to be included and recognized as part of the scene.” The former lead singer of Tupelo Honey decided a few years back to take a stab at some solo business with a country tinge. He’s hit the road with the Road Hammers, Brett Kissel, Corb Lund, and others. Earlier this year he picked up a handful of awards from the Alberta Country Music Awards, receiving Song of the Year and Single of the Year awards for ‘Barn Burner’, along with Male Artist of the Year and Fan Choice awards. He couldn’t attend the award show, as he was on tour with Kissel. The awards are a great nod to the work, to the writing and production, and the EP was long time coming, writing about 50 odd tunes and these were the ones defining the time, and standing out of the bunch. My daughter Georgia has been along for the ride, so calling it

‘Songs for Georgia’ made sense.” His singles ‘Found’, ‘Barn Burner’, and ‘Say We Did’ bring some great melody to airwaves and humour to their videos. Davidson says his new single Let’s Go There – brings the elements of Found that worked so well with fans over the last couple summers. “It is familiar but different. We went down to Nashville to record it, which makes no sense and is the most expensive way to record,” he jokes. He finds himself on the road with Brett Kissel, the pair hit DC for a March 10 show as part of Kissel’s ‘We Were That Song’ tour. “I know Brett so there was no weird first week on the road, we just got down to business. We’re moving into BC for the last leg of the tour and we’re playing tight and ready to roll.” He said the tour is getting him around Canada. “We’re getting to see more of BC than ever before.” Once the tour wraps, Davidson says he plans to get some writing done, and then hit the summer festivals. He has some European shows in his future. His arc over the last few years has been certainly straight upwards. “It has been cool to see the progress.” - Brown

Genetic Evaluation Definitions

What does that mean? EPD (Expected Progeny Differences) are expressions of the relative genetic merit of beef cattle for various traits. EPDs are used to compare the predicted progeny performance between two bulls (or females) within a breed, regardless of age or herd location. EPDs are expressed in the actual units of measure for a given trait. Interim EPDs (indicated as PE+) are calculated using a calf’s sire's and dam’s National EPDs plus the calf’s own performance data.

Salers Association of Canada (January 3, 2018) http://salerscanada.com/the-performance/sire-summary/

Possible Change Table: EPDs are predictions of an animal's breeding value for a given trait. As with any prediction, there is a margin of error, or possible change, associated with an EPD. When the accuracy is low, this margin for error is high. As more information (i.e. progeny data) becomes available, the margin of error becomes smaller. Percentile Table: used to quickly rank a sire or dam within the breed for a given trait. Active Sires/Dams: animals that have at least one progeny with a weaning weight recorded in the past two years. Black/Red Carrier: an animal whose coat colour is black, but carries the recessive gene for red coat colour. ---------------------------------(ACC) Accuracy: the reliability that can be placed on the EPD. An accuracy of close to 1.0 indicates higher reliability. Accuracy is impacted by the number of progeny and ancestral records included in the analysis. (BW) Birth Weight EPD: expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire's ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny compared to that of other sires. (CED) Calving Ease Direct EPD: the average difference in ease with which a sire's calves will be born when he is bred to first calf heifers. The higher the number the more probability that his calves will be born unassisted. (CEM) Calving Ease Maternal EPD: is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births with a higher value indicating greater probability of unassisted births in firstcalf daughters. It predicts the average ease with which a sire's daughters will calve as firstcalf heifers when compared to daughters of other sires. (CW) Carcass Weight EPD: expressed in lbs, this EPD predicts differences in the average hot carcass weight in progeny. This EPD is calculated using birth weight, weaning weight and yearling weight EPDs as well as any carcass data available. (FAT) Fat/Back Fat EPD: expressed in inches, is a predictor of the differences in back fat thickness at the 12th rib (as measured between the 12th and 13th ribs) of a sire's progeny compared to progeny of other sires. The higher the EPD the more back fat expected on a sires calves. (HPG) Heifer Pregnancy EPD: the percent probability in a bull’s daughters’ ability to conceive and calve as two year olds. Just like the stayability EPD, heifer pregnancy EPDs are expressed in terms of a percentage difference. For example, two heifer pregnancy EPDs, 5 and 10, differ by 5%. Daughters of the bull with the EPD of 10 are 5% more likely to conceive than daughters of the other bull. (MARB) Marbling EPD: a prediction of future

progeny’s performance for carcass marbling scores. This EPD incorporates both ultrasound and carcass data. The higher the EPD the more intramuscular fat expected in the rib eye of a sire’s calves. (MILK) Milk EPD: is an indicator of milking ability in daughters. It represents the differences in weaning weights of calves due to the amount of milk produced by their mothers. It is expressed in pounds of calf weaned. The higher the EPD the more weaning pounds a sires daughters will add to her calves via milk. (PE) Parental Average EPD: indicated as PE, is an average of a calf’s sire's and dam’s National EPDs. These have minimal accuracy as they do not incorporate the calf’s own performance. (REA) Ribeye Area EPD: expressed in square inches, is a predictor of the difference in ribeye area of a sire's progeny compared to progeny of other sires. The larger the EPD the larger the expected rib eye area. (SC) Scrotal Circumference EPD: expressed in centimetres, is a predictor of the difference in transmitting ability for scrotal size compared to that of other sires. Scrotal Circumference is an indicator of both growth and male fertility. Larger scrotal size is related to increased sperm production and semen quality, and in daughters' younger age to puberty, younger age to calving and higher pregnancy rate. (STAY) Stayability EPD: the percent probability of daughters staying in production to at least 6 years of age. Stayability EPDs for bulls are the prediction of the genetic differences between their daughters probability of staying in production in a herd to at least the age of 6 years. Given the primary emphasis on pregnancy in most herds, stayability is a measure of sustained fertility. The higher the EPD the more likely a sire's daughter will remain in production in a herd past 6 years. (TM) Total Maternal EPD: is a combination of the weaning weight and milk EPDs. It is calculated as: 1/2 Weaning Weight EPD + Milk EPD = Total Maternal. This EPD represents the differences in weaning weights between calves due to mothering and milking ability of their dams. (WW) Weaning Weight EPD: expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire's ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Weaning weight is an indicator of growth from birth to weaning (205 days of age). The calf's growth during this period is influenced by its own ability to grow plus its mother's maternal abilities. The higher the EPD, the heavier, on average, the calves of a sire will be at weaning. (YW) Yearling Weight EPD: expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire's ability to transmit yearling growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. The higher the EPD, the heavier, on average, the calves of a sire will be at yearling. (YG) Yield Grade EPD: expressed in USDA yield grade score, this EPD predicts differences in carcass yield grade score to be expected from progeny. This EPD is a ratio or summary of the rib eye area and fat EPDs. The lower the EPD, the closer to USDA grade 1 the sire’s calves will grade (grade 1, having the biggest rib eye area to lowest fat ratio, is the preferred grade).
