Fitting Tip From The Pro’s - Todd Caldwell When fitting a leg there is one product line that stands out. Sullivan’s Primetime and Tail Adhesive. They dry completely and leave the hair crisp so it clips off with ease. Sullivan adhesives perform in all types of weather - winter, spring summer or fall. These products will not wilt or fall down in the humidity. We proceed with the Sullivan’s Ultra White Touchup as a leg builder and use Black Finisher as our final cover-up. Their level of performance and real hair-like appearance is unmatched. And Sullivan touch-ups will not melt your adhesive.

Homozygous black and polled!

Plain and simple... this is the baldy, outcross, Simmental sire we’ve ALL been looking for! Purebred Simmental Reg. 2341498 Sire: Flying B Prime Cut by TE McCredie Dam: by GW Bright Light

Cut Above fondly earned the nickname “Fat Butt” for his pronounced badonka donk. Take just one look at “Fat Butt”, and it is clear why he’s bound for stardom. You won’t find a purebred Simmental sire with more muscle shape, neck extension, and base width. This package is transported on a perfectly designed, massive set of feet & legs. Phenotype alone is enough to use this bull. Enhancing his value is the fact that he’s related to virtually none of the popular sires of today, yet brings to the table some of the most recognizable and successful foundation sires of the past - notably, Black Max & Buck on both sides. Fat Butt progeny are unlike any from a Simmental sire you’ve used before. They’re a well-balanced package of muscle, bone, style, hair, and incredible structure. Calving

reports are lights out!

Fat Butt’s 2010 NAILE class-winning daughter. Fat Butt’s maternal sister. Commanded $30,000 at the 2010 Royal Edge Sale in IA.

Windfall

Sire: Payday • Dam: Queen 010 by Explorer

Gambles

Royal Flush

We view Windfall as a stouter, more powerful version of BSAR his sire who should improve soundness and profile. He will work great on the females that have become perhaps too moderate and will improve neck extension, width, and belly. Windfall’s dam is the foundation of the PVF program. Alan Miller at PVF says the first Windfall progeny are indeed everything he hoped Sire: BSAR Design Doctor they’d be. Dam: Lassie 746 by Lutton

Opportunity is doublebred OCC Doctor on the paternal side, with some EXT blended in. He is a big footed, performance oriented sire with loads of look. Many at Denver said he is one of the few bulls who can be used on a variety of females. Opportunity owns super EPDs. Owned by Stewart at MidContinent Farms (KS) and Bush Angus (SD).

Royal Flush is a powerful maternal brother to the famous champion and sire of champions, Gambles Hot Rod. Use Royal Flush to add loads of belly and rib with power and muscle shape. Topline Farms (IL) averaged nearly $6,000 on his sons in their 2010 Bull Sale. You’ll want to check out his breed -leading spread EPDs.

By-Product is a moderately framed, super hairy, deep bodied son of the popular calving ease sire, Final Product. Rutledge Farms (IL) purchased this chunk in Musgraves’ 2010 Bull Sale to use on their heifers and add hair and belly to their cowherd.

Opportunity

Sire: Marathon • Dam:Lady 703 by Saugahatchee

Rodman

Sire: Connealy Final Product Dam: Missie 936 by Bando 1961 Rodman is Mid-Continent Farms’ (KS) answer for producing calving ease and eye appeal. He sired the Reserve Champion Female at the 2010 NAILE. Rodman also sired the high-selling bull in the JSAR 2010 Bull Sale.

Sire: WAR Hall of Fame Dam: Miss Ferd by WAR Ferdinand

The Answer

Sire: Final Answer • Dam: by 878 son

MCATL By-Product

Total Recall

Total Recall is Griswold Cattle Company’s (OK) calving ease super-sire. He moderates frame and improves body depth and fleshing ability, while maintaining style. Total Recall has sired some super heifers.

Sire: OCC Missing Link Dam: Juanada 741K by Emblazon The Answer is calving-ease deluxe with a great front end. He sired the Grand Champion Pen of 3 percentage Simmy heifers for Grass-Lunning at the 2011 NWSS. Horsley Brothers (IL) have used him successfully, too!

Satchmo

Satchmo is adding some power and hip to his progeny with a cool look. He’s built similarly to Lut, with bone and hair and a neat front end.

Unbelievable is an incredibly designed calving ease prospect that owns unique neck extension, unquestioned structural soundness, extra special belly depth, and super muscle shape for an Angus bull. Unbelievable is sired by the wildly popular Bismarck bull, yet offers extra depth and hair, no doubt due his maternally stacked pedigree which consists of a double shot of legendary Flashback laced with VRD and TC Dividend. We envision Unbelievable siring extra-ordinary low birth-weight progeny utilizable in both purebred and hybrid cowherds. We can’t wait for Unbelievable progeny!

wow! — Says it all. Look at the hair, bone, body, muscle shape — this guy has it all! Breeders have been looking for a club calf sired Foundation Simmental to make great low percentage Simmental females. Imagine using ePIC on those Meyer and Steel Force daughters. Add to that, the options of the very popular Monopoly bull as a club calf steer sire. We purchased this bull from Holmes Show Cattle this winter and we are pretty excited about him. He will work on our cows — he will work on yours too!

With a very limited amount of semen ever collected and sold of the maternal legend WHIPLASH, his daughters have proven to be some of the industry’s most productive and sought after females. Now his full brother TOOL is carrying on the legacy. Breeding very similar to his brother, TOOL is consistently producing functional Meyer influenced females with added bone, hair, and stoutness. TOOL is perfect in his structure, very athletic, big hipped, and powerful. We expect great things from TOOL.

Tabasco Cat comes as this year’s top Friction son. He is truly an athlete. Powerfully constructed from the ground up, fluid in his motion, well balanced, and has the look we have come to expect from his famous pedigree. Friction, Full Flush, and Full Throttle need no introduction, and his Double Stuff dam is a no miss donor for John Goeken in South Dakota. She is currently writing her own pages in the club calf history books. If using a new bull is in your plans this breeding season, here is, without question, one of the bulls you need to consider.

Showmanship Points by Division

Oklahoma Club Calf Association - March 2011

Hello from OCCA! The grass is greening up, so maybe spring is almost here. The Oklahoma Youth Expo (OYE) brings an end to the point accumulation for the year. Although most kids know where they will rank in points, a few will be decided in Oklahoma City, which adds to the excitement. Congratulations to all of those OCCA members who chased points this year. We hope everyone had fun at all of the shows this season. They seemed like a big success. Individuals who coordinate, manage, and implement OCCA-sanctioned shows should also be recognized for their efforts. Those shows don’t just happen. Lots of hard work goes into those that are run right. The Beef Expo is on Easter weekend this year, so we moved it up a day to stay off Sunday. Watch the website for times and updates. Something new this year will be an educational seminar sponsored by Sullivan Supply. As always, we want to thank our sponsors: Purina, CM Trailers, Cinch, and Cruel Girl. Without you, OCCA could not exist. Good Luck at your next show and remember - win or lose, you are always a champ!

Tim B Stidham, OCCA President

Kansas Club Calf Association

The Kansas Club Calf Association is off to a wonderful start with a complete re-organization of the group. The new Executive Director, Bobbi Olivier Shrum, is a past 4-H member who showed for many years and has a great interest in helping the youth of the KCCA. The adult Board of Directors has been working since last fall to get organized and moving forward to promote our kids in the 2011 show season. The Junior Board has just been seated in the month of February. They will now be taking the reins more to start their own way down the road to new officers and a great year. We are all looking forward to a fantastic year for the KCCA.

Sometimes You Don’t Get What You Pay For

ne of my hobbies is raising Shorthorn breeding stock. I love the cattle community, I love the cows and the people, and I especially love the Shorthorn breed. From buying my first Shorthorn cow back in my 4-H and FFA days to my budding herd of present day, I’ve long considered myself a cowhand with a day job. Because of my busy professional schedule, I can’t adequately manage every aspect of the cowherd myself, and have always partnered with other breeders and farmers to get the job done. These partnerships have always proven themselves to be both rewarding and extremely challenging. Partnerships in farming are often fraught with peril. From miscommunications and differing expectations, the number of opportunities for friction in a partnership is as numerous as the days in the year. On one hand, I’ve worked with partners who were so generous and enthusiastic that a careless partner could easily take advantage of a good situation. On the other, I’ve worked with those who micromanage the relationship to the point of exasperation, leading an otherwise well-meaning partner to feel “nickeled and dimed” to death. The best partnership I’ve ever had, past or present, is with my Dad and my Little Brother. “Little Brother,” as I often call him, has a very successful grain operation he’s built basically from scratch over the last six or seven years. I give him some insights to the grain markets based on my reporting of farm news, and we’ve enjoyed some opportunities to help him sell a good crop. Dad, meanwhile, has forgotten more about farming than I’ll ever know, growing up on a very diversified operation that fed dairy and beef cattle, hogs, sheep, and chickens, and raised corn, beans, wheat, and forages. The two of them, sharing very different perspectives, provide me with the best set of partners I could ask for. It’s always challenging to work with family, at least so the conventional thinking goes. The annals of history are littered with the carcasses of businesses (and farms) that failed because of bad blood in family partnerships. Generational differences, spousal interference, and just good

200 April 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

old-fashioned sibling bickering can really do a number on an operation. The secret to success, in our case, is that each of us genuinely wants the other to succeed. Perhaps it’s because we each have a slightly different interest/passion on the farm that we’re able to do so well working together, but I’ve enjoyed working with my family in growing my herd as much as anything I’ve ever done in agriculture. Since moving my cows back to the home farm last year, we’ve done things I’ve never done before, like flushing three of our donor cows at our own facility. The cows are in great condition, I’m excited about the calves we have on the ground from 2010, and even more so about the matings we’ve created for this year’s crop. As I mentioned, we each have a little different passion and area of expertise. In my case, my main focus is on the cows and the marketing of the operation. From giving Little Brother my thoughts on the grain markets to planning the matings of our cowherd, I stay focused on the areas of the operation from which I derive the most fulfillment. Likewise, Little Brother is better every year at growing corn and soybeans. He’s got a great crop off last year, even in spite of some weather woes from time to time. Dad, of course, is the linchpin of the operation. His biggest strength is that his desire for his kids to succeed far outweighs his own personal interests. Fortunately, he derives a lot of personal pleasure from raising cattle and growing corn and beans, but he consistently demonstrates that his biggest goal in life is for Little Brother and I to do well and be happy. It’s a lesson I’ve learned through his example in more ways than one, and I just hope I’ll be half the father to my own kids some day as he’s been to us. While the old adage may be that “you get what you pay for,” working on the farm with Dad and Little Brother has “...I’ve enjoyed continually proven this conworking with my ventional wisdom wrong. Far family... as much from getting what I pay for, I as anything I’ve ever done in agri- get infinitely more from the two of them in our farming culture.” operation than I think I’ll ever — ANDY VANCE be able to give in return.

Said by many good cattlemen to be one the best bulls to sell in Denver this year, Score Board has created quite a stir. He is a true power bull that is heavy muscled, big bodied, big testicled with a massive foot; this combined with his look and eye appeal and his flawless structural makeup makes Score Board a potential breed changer.

the buzz outside the barn We know it’s not always about show cattle, sire promotions, and show results. There’s also lots of agriculture-related books and movies that we think are worth giving our two cents on. Enjoy!

worth watching: S tat e Fa i r about the movie… It is 1945, and the Frakes – father Abel, mother Melissa, and young adult children Wayne and Margy – are an Iowa farm family gearing up for the Iowa State Fair. They’re brimming with high hopes for dad’s prize pig, Blue Boy, and mother’s pickles and mincemeat. Wayne is determined to get back at the carnival worker who cheated him out of his money last year, and Margy is hoping for something more exciting than the farm life she feels tied to. At the fair, they face tough competition and meet interesting people. Margy becomes enamored with a reporter from the Des Moines Register, and Wayne takes a liking to a girl that sings as stage entertainment. Will Blue Boy and mother’s mincemeat stack up against the other entries? Will both children’s romances last beyond the end of the fair? You’ll have to watch to find out! the CaSt Dana Andrews, Jeanne Craine, Dick Haymes, and Vivian Blaine DetailS Appropriate For: All Ages Runtime: 100 minutes Popular tunes: “Our State Fair,” “It Might As Well Be Spring,” “It’s a Grand Night For Singing” You maY not know • There were actually a few different versions of this film. The original (and largely unknown) production starred Will Rogers and was actually filmed at the 1932 Iowa State Fair. During they’re visit, the director and crew purchased three hogs, including the grand champion that year, Dike of Rosedale. • Following the success of the 1945 re-make, 20th Century Fox decided to come out with a new and modernized version in 1962. This edition took place in Texas and featured popular stars at the time, Ann-Margret and Pat Boone. There were auto racing scenes, a more torrid love affair, and it included new storyline and new music.

260 April 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

what we thought “State Fair” is a heart-swelling film that makes you want to burst into song and break into dance each time the characters in the film do it! Yes, it is a classic musical, so the non-musical-enthusiasts might be inclined to dismiss it, but there are several qualities about the film that might make you glad you watched. For starters, it appears that much of the set design was actually based on real structures at the historical Iowa State Fairgrounds. The culmination scene sees “Blue Boy” paraded before the judges during the Grand Champion Boar competition. Those of you who’ve been to the Iowa State Fair will surely recognize the overall design of the show ring, because it mirrors the very same show pavilion where 4-H members exhibit their steers and heifers even now. It’s captivating to see this building in use as it might have been 60 years ago. Also, the story of the Frake family, although dated and Hollywood-ized, can certainly be recognized in so many homes throughout Iowa and the whole country. A farm family working together, having adventures, getting into mischief, and enjoying some of life’s simple pleasures. For those who are musical fans, you’ll appreciate the classic Rogers and Hammerstein score and will surely be inspired to belt out how your “State Fair is the best state fair in (your) state!” And Iowans will particularly like the movie’s Iowa tribute – “All I Owe, I Owe I-O-W-A!” It’s a feel-good glimpse at what life might have been like for people much like us in 1945.


a good read halF broke horSeS by Jeannette Walls about the book “Those old cows knew trouble was coming before we did.” So begins the story of Lily Casey Smith, Jeannette Walls’s no-nonsense, resourceful, and spectacularly compelling grandmother. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses. At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town—riding five hundred miles on her pony, alone, to get to her job. She learned to drive a car and fly a plane. And, with her husband, Jim,

she ran a vast ranch in Arizona. She raised two children, one of whom is Jeannette’s memorable mother, Rosemary Smith Walls, unforgettably portrayed in Walls’s first book, The Glass Castle. Lily survived tornadoes, droughts, floods, the Great Depression, and the most heartbreaking personal tragedy. She bristled at prejudice of all kinds—against women, Native Americans, and anyone else who didn’t fit the mold. Rosemary Smith Walls always told Jeannette that she was like her grandmother, and in this true-life novel, Jeannette Walls channels that kindred spirit. Half Broke Horses is Laura Ingalls Wilder for adults, as riveting and dramatic as Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa or Beryl Markham’s West with the Night. Destined to become a classic, it will transfix readers everywhere.

about the author Jeannette Walls was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and grew up in the Southwest and in Welch, West Virginia. She graduated from Barnard College and was a journalist in New York City for twenty years. Her award-winning memoir, The Glass Castle, is an international bestseller and has been translated into twenty languages. She is married to writer John Taylor and lives in Virginia.

Nearing Retirement?

Give Yourself a Financial Check-Up s you approach retirement, you will quite likely be assessing your financial situation to determine if you have saved and invested enough to afford a comfortable future. Gener-

ally, financial professionals advise that to maintain your current lifestyle you will need approximately 70 percent to 80 percent of your current annual income each year in retirement, although your own situation may differ based on your personal goals and finances. Taking an in-depth look at your finances and an inventory of your retirement funds approximately five to seven years before retiring will give you time to make adjustments to help you meet your goals when retirement time comes around. Will I Have Enough Retirement Income?

Generally, retirees turn to these sources of income: Social Security benefits; earnings (including part-time jobs); personal savings and investments, including IRA accounts or additional employee savings plans; and company retirement plans. According to the Social Security Administration, Social Security may account for only about 40 percent of your income in retirement¹. Personal investments and savings, company retirement plans and other sources will have to make up the remaining portion of your income—about 60 percent. After calculating your projected retirement income, you also need to examine your current expenses and determine which items will increase or decrease, which will be eliminated and which will be added after you retire. By reviewing this information early on, you can develop a sense of whether you’ll have the necessary income to cover your expenses once you retire. Compare your expense calculations with your projected sources of income and determine whether you will have a surplus or a deficiency. At the same time, determine at what point in retirement you will need to begin drawing on your retirement plan assets. If, after comparing your expenses with income, you have a surplus, you are on the right track to enjoying a comfortable

262 April 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

retirement. However, if you note a deficiency, you can make decisions now to help ensure that you will have a relatively comfortable retirement later on.

Should I Adjust My Asset Allocation Strategy?

Having a good understanding of investing becomes more important as you approach retirement. Examine all the investments available through your retirement plan and determine into which category—stocks, bonds or cash equivalents—each of them falls. Next, assess your level of risk. As people prepare to retire, they generally want less risk in their investments than in the past. Since your income from employment will have stopped or decreased considerably and your assets may be invested over a shorter period, it may be more difficult to recover from loss. Therefore you may want a lower-risk investment strategy than before. Whether you intend to use your money over a relatively short period or spread it out through your retirement is another important factor.

Important Points to Consider

There is no set asset allocation strategy that works for everyone. Before determining which strategy best fits your personal situation, keep in mind that different people have different financial resources and expectations regarding how long they will be in retirement. Therefore, individuals have different risk tolerances and investment horizons. And remember, no matter what asset allocation strategy you choose, there is always some level of risk and no guarantee that you will not experience a loss. Also, keep in mind that you need to look at your holdings as a whole. Consider your personal accounts, retirement accounts and any additional sources of retirement income that you may have. By planning the entire picture you will be better able to develop a portfolio that reflects your immediate and long-term goals. Your financial advisor can help you determine if your strategies are on the right track toward a secure retirement and help you find ways to maintain your position or work toward your goals. 1.

Using In Vitro Fertilization on Pregnant Cows and Heifers

New Use for an Old Technology In Vitro Fertilization is a reproductive tool that many cattle breeders have successfully utilized and implemented within their breeding program. While there are many benefits associated with IVF, many producers do not realize that the procedure can be performed on pregnant cows and heifers. Creating pregnancies from a donor that is gestating her natural calf holds tremendous opportunity for livestock breeders to capture the most value from their best cows. It can be a great opportunity to generate offspring from elite heifers, and still have them calve at the appropriate time. IVF can be performed on pregnant cows because the process involves harvesting unfertilized oocytes (unfertile eggs) directly from the ovaries, and the uterus and pregnancy are not disturbed by the procedure.

ent service manager at Trans Ova. One unique thing about IVF on pregnant donors is that pregnant donors usually produce better quality of oocytes than non-pregnant donors, which can lead to better quality grades in the resulting embryos…which translates into more pregnant recipients and ultimately calves. “As a group, pregnant donors tend to produce embryos at a level that is at or above the average of open donors. Some breeders have even used this ability as a tool to improve embryo production from donors who have had unsatisfactory results when they were open.” Metzger says.

The Process After a client has confirmed the donor is 30 days pregnant, the IVF procedure is initiated and collections occur every other week. This occurs until approximately day 100 of the pregnancy, when the ovaries can no longer be reached for retrieval.

IVF TImelIne • Stimulation of the donor (optional) • OPU (Ovum Pick Up) procedure occurs • Oocyte maturation for 20 to 24 hours (allows for shipping of oocytes if done at a remote lab) • Fertilization of oocytes occurs for 24 hours (with sorted semen if desired) •Culture for 6 days • Evaluation and transfer on the 8th day following OPU Expected Results “Usually we expect around 4 to 5 embryo transfers per OPU (ovum pick up), with variation in results depending on the individual,” says Hong Wei, Chief Scientific Officer at Trans Ova Genetics. “Results from utilizing IVF on pregnant donors have been very pleasing,” says Scott Metzger, dairy sales and cli-

When performing IVF on pregnant donors, there is a small risk of loss of the pregnancy. The extra handling and/or trucking of the donor may carry as much risk as the procedure itself, but nonetheless, producers should be aware that there is a low element of risk involved. However, the risk-benefit ratio is quite favorable, and this technology has been widely accepted by breeders in both the beef and dairy industries. Benefits “The ability to create IVF embryos from pregnant donors is an extremely powerful tool for both beef and dairy producers to utilize in their breeding programs,” says Metzger. “A reproductively healthy donor can now extend her genetic influence without being relegated to the status of a permanent donor within the herd. This benefit is especially important for heifers, as it allows them to prove their ability to perform by calving on track with their herd mates.” April 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

Value of Corn Distillers Grains in Finishing Diets

Third article in the series: “Effects of DGS on Fecal Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Sulfur and Pathogen Levels” revious articles in this series have presented the results of several feeding trials conducted at Illinois State University regarding the feeding of various levels of modified wet distillers grains to steers during the finishing period. Satisfactory feedlot performance was obtained when diets included 25%, 40% or 70% DGS. In all the trials, inclusion of DGS resulted increased economic efficiency (more dollars returned over feed cost) compared to high concentrate shelled corn diets without DGS inclusion. While similar quality grades (marbling scores) and yield grades were observed in the carcasses regardless of whether the steers were fed 0, 25, 40 or 70% DGS, steers fed 70% DGS did produce rib steaks with lower Minolta color scores suggesting these steaks may have reduced shelf life when offered for retail sale as fresh beef for an extended period of time. However, even though the color scores declined, the Minolta color scores remained within value ranges considered acceptable to consumers. In addition, other carcass values such as tenderness (measured by the Warner-Bratzler shear test), percent moisture, 0 percent fat and percent cooking loss were similar among all steaks from steers fed 0, 25, 40 or 70% DGS. In addition to feedlot performance, economic analyses and carcass acceptability, we evaluated selected characteristics of the feces collected from the steers fed various levels of DGS. No significant differences in nitrogen, phosphorous or sulfur concentrations of fecal samples collected from steers fed 0% DGS, 25% DGS or 40% DGS diets were found (Table 1). However, steers fed 70% DGS diets had significantly higher nitrogen, phosphorous and sulfur concentrations in the fecal samples analyzed. This suggests that when land applying manure according to a nutrient management plan (NMP) no more acres are required for the manure produced by steers fed diets containing up to 40% DGS diets than for steers fed high concentrate diets containing shelled corn and 0% DGS. But, manure produced by steers fed 70% DGS, when applied to nutrient rich soils, may require more acres for land application for the same dry weight of manure than the manure produced by 0%, 25% or 40% DGS fed steers. The manure produced by steers fed 70% DGS diets produced 14.5% more nitrogen, 30.8% more phosphorous and 60.9% more sulfur than the average manure concentrations of the steers fed the 0%, 25% and 40% DGS diets.

*Means in a row with different superscripts differ significantly.

By contrast, increased nutrient concentration of the manure produced by steers fed 70% DGS diets may have increased economic value. Because of the increased nutrient (N, P, S) concentration, the manure produced by steers fed diets containing 70 percent DGS may have increased value per ton of dry matter as a soil fertilizer requiring either few tons:acre to meet crop production requirements or by providing more nutrients per acre with similar application rates. Recently soil scientists and agronomists have identified some midwest and northeast soils as becoming sulfur deficient and that some crops (alfalfa and corn grain) may responsed to sulfur fertilization. The elevated S values of the manure produced by steers fed the 70% DGS diets are able to satisfy the increasing soil/crop sulfur requirements. It is important to note that no significant differences in E coli concentrations were found in the fecal samples collected within a season regardless of whether the steers were fed 0, 25 40 or 70 percent DGS diets (Table 2). There were, however, significant differences in E coli concentrations between seasons of the year when the fecal samples collected from the steers were combined for all dietary treatments. E coli concentrations were higher during summer than they were during the winter and fall months. Any fecal samples identified to contain E coli were further analyzed to determine if the E coli included the 0157:H7 strain of E coli. Only two fecal samples were found to contain E coli 0157:H7. Both samples were from steers fed 70% DGS. One sample was collected in October and the other sample was collected in December. This data suggests dietary inclusion of DGS probably has less effect on E coli concentration than do environmental factors such as temperature and moisture conditions, and other management factors such as type of feed yard, numbers of cattle per pen, etc. These results were obtained when cattle were fed diets containing modified wet (50 – 60% moisture) distillers grains that contained 24 – 26% crude protein and 6.5 – 7.0% crude fat, i.e. a lower fat concentration DGS. Our next series of feeding trials will evaluate the efficacy of feeding higher fat DGS (11 – 12% crude fat and 28 – 30% crude protein DGS). Table 2.

GeneticTradition L The Story of Mid-Continent Farms

ove for the beef industry dates back to 1916, when talking about the Stewart family and Mid-Continent Farms cattle operation. Gregg Stewart, a partner of Mid-Continent Farms, recently sat down in the kitchen he also grew

up in. Surrounding him was the beginning of the Stewart generational farm life. Letters to his great-grandpa, W.C. Mueller, sat all around the counter. The letters were dated by their yellow color and cursive handwriting. They were from farmers throughout Kansas and surrounding states inquiring about registered Polled Hereford bulls, Red Rock chickens, and local inquiries for eggs. Mueller sold a bull for $400, the same price as a new Model T Ford pickup at that time. Gregg is now a fifth generation stockman of Washington County, Kansas. The MCF partnership raises show steers and includes Stewart’s immediate family, including his wife, Debbie; their three boys, Garrett, Brigham, and Tucker; parents, Conrad and Deanna Stewart; and brother, Kent Stewart, with his chil-

With registered Maine-Anjou, Shorthorn, Charolais, Simmental, Angus, and Chianina, plus a handful of Herefords, MCF owns 1,500 head of cattle representing various composites of the breeds and farm 1,500 acres of tillable ground. Gregg said their focus is on cattle. “We have always taken a practical approach to raising show steers,” Kent said. “We are a little more mainstream than the show industry has been.” To accomplish practicality, the Stewart family realized they needed to keep the basics in their herd and bought registered Angus cattle. “We decided to get involved in a big way to bring out the more functional traits of our crossbreds,” Gregg said. The operation started to breed their own Angus cattle when they found it hard to buy cattle that possessed the traits for which they were looking. It wasn’t a conscious effort to become Angus producers, Gregg shares. “Some show cattle herds don’t concentrate on the big picture. You can’t make practical

Uncle Adelbert Stewart and “Red Cap” circa 1949 at a livestock judging contest at Kansas State University. Red Cap was the reserve Grand Champion at the American Royal for KSU. Miles McKee, a student at that time and later an educator at KSU, helped care for & groom Red Cap.

In 2006 Tucker Stewart had the Grand Champion Steer and Supreme Champion Heifer at the Kansas State Fair. A feat never accomplished or repeated to date by an exhibitor.

advancements if you are only focused on phenotype.” From a resource standpoint, it was becoming costly to keep the Angus herd separate on the Kansas ranch, so they decided to spread out their marketing efforts and give the herd its own identity. Gregg couldn’t have picked a better partner than the Ron Jones family of Benkelman, Neb. In 1995, they joined forces and created the Jones Stewart Angus Ranch. Jones said he bought half of the Stewart interest in the Angus herd and traded his show cattle to the Stewarts. He handles the development side of the business, because he has the facilities to handle the capacity of the herd. “Stewarts are pleasant people to work with and are always oriented on the quality of the cattle,” Jones comments.

the roots In WWII-era Kansas, Ray Stewart (Gregg & Kent’s grandfather) kept a cowherd and sold mules to the U.S. Army. Their father, Conrad, was more interested in the cash grain business and feeding out cattle. Gregg remembers, “Dad always said Grandpa was an ‘ole mule skinner’, so Kent and I came by trading livestock naturally.” Cow-calf pairs generally weren’t involved in the immediate family until 1980. Gregg gives the credit for starting the business to 4-H and FFA. He joined the Farmington 4-H Club when he was seven years old, but said, because of his brother, he has shown cattle since he was old enough to

remember doing so. Gregg also participated in woodworking, cooking, horse, and market sheep projects. His mother, Deanna, was also a 4-H leader for several years, guiding Gregg and Kent to do their best in each project. “Mom was always the one to haul us around to the steer shows,” Gregg recalls. The brothers enjoyed their steer projects and saw their future in it. “We are fortunate to do something we have always had a love for,” Kent shared. 4-H allowed the brothers to start livestock judging, which led to FFA and collegiate judging. Both were on judging teams at Colby Community College and Kansas State University (KSU). The business began to receive national interaction when the young men visited farms for livestock judging practice. Gregg said they would work out a deal with the producer while they were there to judge. At that time, they started signing contracts to artificially inseminate more than 1,000 cows a year for several different herds and in addition were given first pick of the calves. They also bought bulls to clean-up those cows. At seventeen and nineteen years of age, the boys sought out sales and breeders around the country to begin purchasing cattle of their own. Their dad trusted their competence and sense of responsibility, while letting them make their own mistakes. “Our dad was the type you wanted buying your cattle. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to pay for it,” Gregg recounts. “It helped that he had a great eye for conformation.” Their first major purchase was 40 bred Chianina heifers from the Mile High Ranch in Colorado and 40 cows locally. To this day, Stewarts still have MC Cowboy bloodlines, originating from the first 40 heifers. With the help of their parents and experience, the business grew quickly, and the Stewarts needed an official name.

“Customers may buy a calf, but they are also getting the service we can provide for them.”

Conrad Stewart (Gregg & Kent’s father) exhibited the Grand Champion Steer at the Washington County Fair in 1952.

- BriGham Stewart judging team at Colby Community College, they chose Mid-Continent Chianina, because of their centralized location within the U.S. They changed the name to Mid-Continent Farms (MCF) as their operation began expanding to different breeds and various parts of the country. Cattle have been sold to customers as far away as California in the west and Maryland in the east, from Canada to Central America. To help them keep up with their growing business, they have also expanded their organized sale efforts. MCF has a heifer and a steer sale each fall, the

MCF and Partner’s sale at the farm of their good friend and partner, Steve Courville, in Illinois each October, and the Jones Stewart Angus sale in March. They are also growing in Texas. Kent lived around Washington and helped with the day-to-day chores during the operation’s first 20 years, but for the last 10 years he has lived in Franklin, Texas, and is helping the family operation grow in sales. Kent feels that it helps that he was originally a cow-man and knows the cattle business when he speaks to MCF customers. Derek, Kent’s son, works for him full-time with the cattle they raise and sell. Derek is also a professional steer wrestler. Kent’s daughter, Devon, helps mostly at shows and sales, because she is concentrating on school at Hutchinson Community College and livestock judging. The Stewarts also offer a value-added service. Their sales aren’t just about selling bulls and making a profit, Brigham Stewart asserts. Brigham received his

bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University in Animal Sciences And Industries, moved back to the farm in Washington, and helps the business continue to grow and evolve. The operation now offers customer service, helping clients find a show calf, helping clip before a show, and offering advice on feeding. Now Brigham and his two brothers are old enough that they can create even more credibility for the operation. “Customers may buy a calf,” Brigham reveals, “but they are also getting the service we can provide for them.” Many exhibitors may see the Stewarts around at shows. “Even though we are working with clients and sales, we consider shows our vacation. We help with the show preparation for the cattle we sold or own a piece of and enjoy our time away from the farm,” Brigham observes. The operation is gaining more national exposure by their extra services and the new generation of Stewarts. Garrett, Brigham, and Tucker competed on very successful livestock judging teams at Butler Community College. All three boys were honored with collegiate All-American Awards. The boys went on to judge at Kansas State University. Garrett had numerous livestock judging and reasons wins, including high beef contestant at the American Royal and was presented the Bell Award at KSU, an honor bestowed on the outstanding collegiate livestock judge. Brigham was the high individual at the National Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest in Louisville, Kentucky, where he was also co-high in reasons. That reasons score was a record and still stands today. Like Garrett, he also won the Bell Award at KSU. Tucker was also an accomplished livestock judger for KSU and Butler Community College and was a member of the Reserve National Champion Team for KSU at Louisville. “I judge at several shows around the country giving the operation more exposure to who we are,” Brigham said. Whether Brigham is on the road or not,


The Stewart family enjoys working together in and out of the barn!

Tucker comes home on the weekends to work on the farm. He is a KSU senior, graduating in May in Animal Sciences And Industry, with a pre-law option. Debbie said work on the farm has always been the number one priority in all of their lives. “There was never a silver spoon,” Debbie shares. “I always thought Gregg was hard on the boys while they were growing up, but because of the hard work they’ve done, they can handle life’s challenges.”

eye on the future

year veterinary student at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, received the Veterinary Training Program for Rural Kansas. Before receiving the award, he helped push this piece of legislation through, with help from state representative and greataunt, Sharon Schwartz (granddaughter of MCF fore-father, W.C. Mueller). Schwartz observes that there is a shortage of large-animal veterinarians in rural America, especially Kansas, and the costs of school and start-up fees for practices are not helping the issue. She contends that this piece of legislation entices people to come back to rural Kansas, and when the 2016 census comes she’s optimistic it will stay in the state budget. The program allows five first-year veterinarian students to receive this award each year. The students receive $20,000 a year for not more than four years. The culmination of this arrangement will be when students finish their degrees and return to rural Kansas, at which time their loans are forgiven. “The legislature is proud of Kansas for taking the lead on this issue, and other states are replicating us,” Schwartz comments. “Without Garrett bringing 2010 Top Cut Female family and sale crew

between the pages the issue to my attention, I know this program would not exist in Kansas.” Garrett also participated in the legislation by testifying for the bill and being part of committees. Garrett has already utilized his veterinarian skills on the farm by helping pregnancy check cattle, giving input on herd health practices, and transferring almost 50 embryos in the spring. Gregg is happy how his boys and the rest of his family are helping the operation prosper. “I’ve never had to push my boys to be interested in the business, it just came natural to them,” Gregg observes. “You can’t hire the invested interest my family has in the beef industry.”

“We enjoy working with our crew, who are some of the best people in the business.”

- GreGG Stewart

Through hard work growing up and the beef industry in their blood, the new generation of Stewarts know the operation isn’t just always sales, shows, and having fun. With the help of Gregg’s three sons the business is using innovative ideas. MCF was one of the first operations to use live-bidding via the internet in their sales. The MCF and Partners sale is utilizing online capabilities by allowing people to make bids on their website. It’s convenient option for customers and allows the business to attract new clients. The family believes they will continue to grow once they have a veterinarian in the family. Garrett, a fourth-

HIDE AND HAIR is the revolutionary new hair growth product from Natural Solutions For Livestock. Not only has it been shown to grow hair but it encourages skin health which is essential for optimum hair growth. HIDE AND HAIR contains kelp and seaweed which has been shown to lower body temperature. Cattle will potentially take the higher or hotter temperature better when going to a show. This new product comes in granulated form, is extremely palatable, and best of all it contains no melatonin. HIDE AND HAIR is the first of its kind designed to be administered 60-90 days before show.

• RESEARCH BASED • FIELD TESTED • NO MELATONIN • PRODUCES THE STRONGEST RESULTS IN THE INDUSTRY

A bucket of HIDE AND HAIR will last 45 days per head. Hair runs in 45 day cycles so you could start seeing results in as little as 45 days. This is a great tool to help with your success, but always remember daily hair care and management play an important roll as well. HIDE AND HAIR has no melatonin so you can not use it too long. With melatonin, there is a point where hair comes to a peak, then hair goes down hill and is hard to recover. With HIDE AND HAIR you are able to plan multiple peaks with a more consistent hair growth over a longer period of time without the valley. It is also great for skin and hair health, so you can administer it for a longer period of time and not be a negative.
