The TURBO Livestock Fan pushes air 5,560 feet per minute at an incredible 1,740 RPM’s and an industry leading 8,453 CFM’s.

READ BELOW HOW. • Sullivan’s TURBO America’s #1 Livestock Fan • Nothing matches the Turbo for Air POWER! The Turbo pushes air 5,560 feet per minute at an incredible 1,740 RPMs and an industry leading 8,453 CFM’s. This is 22% faster and harder than the other livestock fans. Keeping your livestock cool depends on providing a push of high velocity air power to your animal. • The Dominant Motor Performance ... We have over-engineered the Turbo motor for added performance. The premium Nidec-Emerson 1/2 HP sealed ball bearing motor features a very important component, a 10% larger internal stator and rotor ‘stack’ for more horse power than standard 1/2 HP

motors. This extra ‘stack’ powers it to run faster than any other livestock fan that we know of. As an added benefit, the Turbo motor runs 11% cooler than competitors 1/2 HP motors, this allows cooler air output from the Turbo. • The Problem-Free Guard... Built for Longevity! Constructed of extra-thick 7 gauge and 11 gauge steel wire that is formed into a continuous one-piece spiral formation for reinforced strength that is not provided in other fans. This engineered craftsmanship has proven to create strength that is virtually crushproof! Baked-on powder coat treatment for corrosion resistance and a cleaner appearance. No other fan guard withstands the rigors of the show road like the Turbo.

GAME On Turton X McHenry • AICA# M820913 • DOB April 2012 • Semen $25/unit

Zach Kraenow & Paige Sherman 308.760.4852

As one of the most talked about bulls in Denver 2013, Game On is perhaps the most versatile bull to come along in sometime. He is moderate, stout, and stylish. He has the muscle, bone, and hair to sire show ring winners at the most competitive steer shows while maintaining a place in the purebred industry. Game On is a great match for Heat Wave daughters and granddaughters or any cow needing look and power.

BIG pIcture

Artwork by Frank C. Murphy, Courtesy of American Angus Association

the Important role of expectations in the Beef Industry By Dr. Derrell S. Peel, Oklahoma State University Extension Livestock Marketing Specialist

C

attle and beef prices are at record levels in every industry sector, from cow-calf to retail beef prices. These record prices are obviously supported by a very unusual set of supply and demand circumstances. So far in 2014, markets – especially fed cattle and wholesale beef markets – have displayed unprecedented volatility as industry participants try to sort out these unusual market fundamentals in a very dynamic market environment. Both producers and consumers are reacting, not only to current record prices, but also to their evolving expectations for market conditions over the coming weeks, months and years. Much attention is focused on the low cow herd inventory and the need to rebuild. After many years of liquidation, the result of a variety of factors impacting the beef industry, the current situation reminds us that it is the cow-calf sector that is primarily responsible for supply in the beef industry. Until cow-calf producers can and will expand the cow herd, the industry’s ability to maintain beef production will be limited. Cow-calf producers make decisions about herd rebuilding by considering, not only current price levels, but also their expectations about how high prices will go and how long they will persist. The cattle industry has a long history of production and price cycles, so producers recognize that high prices now will likely lead to lower prices at some point in the future … it’s the old adage that the best cure for high prices is high prices. However, the current situation is one of excess liquidation due to external factors that have taken cattle inventories to a much lower level than would have otherwise happened. The beef cow herd was poised to begin expansion in early 2011, prior to the last three years of drought. The beef cow herd then was some 1.8 mil-

lion head larger than today. Moreover, the last cyclical expansion began in 2004 with a beef cow herd of 32.5 million head, with some 3.49 million more beef cows than today. That expansion was brief and truncated by feed and input market shocks; recession; and drought that contributed to the subsequent liquidation since 2007. The path to the current herd level was long and the recovery will similarly take several years which should factor into producer expectations for most of the rest of the decade. Demand is also affected by consumer expectations. There is considerable industry concern about how beef demand will react to the growing pressure for higher wholesale and retail beef prices. So far it appears that beef demand is holding up well. Pork supplies are dropping now as a result of the PED virus and higher pork prices ahead will help support higher beef prices. However, abundant broiler supplies and relatively cheap poultry prices have, somewhat surprisingly, led to little substitution of chicken for beef so far. Consumers may be reacting differently to higher beef prices, in part, because of the expectations they have for the future. Considerable media attention has been drawn to the fact that beef prices will likely be high for an extended period of time. If consumers believed high beef prices were a short-term impact, they would very likely avoid the high prices and substitute away from beef. However, the prospects for high prices for an extended period of time may be causing consumers to have more of a “get it while you can before the price goes even higher” attitude. Consumer preferences do not change easily or quickly. Consumers resigned to higher beef prices will make some adjustments but will continue to purchase beef. – Cow/Calf Corner, Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service

pIcture El Niño Watch

normal year

W

ill 2014 see a return of El Niño – that phenomenon that occurs when a temporary change in sea surface temperatures in the Pacific, along the equator, (a warming in this case) affects weather patterns and can have big impacts on agriculture in the Northern Hemisphere? It depends. According to a March 6 publication from the Climate Prediction Center, neutral (neither El Niño nor La Niña) conditions are expected in the Northern Hemisphere through the spring with about a 50% chance of El Niño developing during the summer or fall. Whether or not this is good news depends on where you live and whether the El Niño, assuming it develops, is weak or strong. For example, in the Midwest, the State Climatologist Office for Illinois provides this generalized summary: > Summers tend to be slightly cooler and wetter than average. > Falls tend to be wetter and cooler than average. > Winters tend to be warmer and drier. > Springs tend to be drier than average. > Snowfall tends to be 70% to 90% of average. > Heating degree days tend to be 80% to 90% of average. Lower heating degree days mean lower heating bills. > Tends to reduce tornado activity in the High Plains and Midwest and increases it in the South. However, a strong El Niño has a tendency for warmer-than-average weather from December through March and wetter-than-average weather in late winter and spring in the Midwest; whereas a weak one doesn’t tend to affect temperatures but can result in drier-than-average weather from January through March. One bright note – the agricultural community in California can at least hope for some moisture to break that devastating drought. According to weather.com: “Based on past history, a moderate or strong El Niño has typically produced wetter-than-average conditions from parts of California

50 April 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

through the southern tier of the United States to Florida during the winter. Below-average precipitation has historically occurred in parts of the Ohio, middle Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. That said, these are impacts that are typically expected, but they aren’t always the rule.” Also per weather.com, “In a moderate or strong El Niño, a large part of the northern tier of the United States typically sees warmerthan-average temperatures during the winter. This includes a swath from the Pacific Northwest to the northern Plains and Great Lakes. According to the Climate Prediction Center branch of NOAA, northeastern Pacific low pressure systems tend to be stronger than normal in El Nino winters. These systems help to pump warm marine air into western Canada, Alaska and the northern United States. “Conversely, cooler-than-average conditions are most likely from southern Texas to the immediate Gulf Coast. This is partially due to increased cloud cover from an active southern storm track. In the recent moderate-to-strong El Niño of 2009 to 2010, temperatures were a mixed bag along the northern tier states during the winter period from December to February. “A much colder-than-average December in Washington, Oregon and Idaho was followed by well above-average temperatures in January and February. Farther east, the three-month winter period overall ranged from below average in Montana and Wyoming to above average in Wisconsin and Michigan. As you can see, not exactly the widespread warmth typically expected from a strong El Niño event in the winter. “Meanwhile, all of the states along the Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida had a colder-than-average winter. This matches up with what is typically expected during an El Niño winter.” One key point to keep in mind – these periodic events are hard to predict and only one of many factors that determine the overall weather we will experience in the coming year. Even so, we are sure to hear more about El Niño in the news as long as there is a chance it may develop.

What’s it

REALLY like to be...

Jennifer Shike

Director of Marketing and Communications

W

University of Illinois, College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences

hat is your background – were you raised on a farm or ranch? I grew up in Washington, Iowa, on a small acreage where we raised a few acres of hay and oats for our livestock and horses. We raised Suffolk sheep, commercial cattle and showed horses and pigs, but my parents did not make their living off the farm. I was actively involved in 4-H and FFA. I loved livestock and horse judging. I attended Black Hawk College East Campus on a livestock judging scholarship and later attended Kansas State University. I had the privilege of being a member of winning livestock and horse judging teams at both schools. I then went on to become the Director of Junior Activities at the National Swine Registry and was responsible for organizing and developing the National Junior Swine Association. I’m active in a variety of organizations including the Livestock Publications Council, the American Agricultural Editors Association and the National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association. I’m married to Dan Shike, a professor of animal science at the University of Illinois. We have three kids – Olivia, 7; Hunter, 5; and our newest addition, Harper, born Jan. 7. We love spending time together whether it’s in

the barn getting ready for pig shows or horse shows or out and about at dance recitals and wrestling meets!

would you describe for us what you really do. I’m the Director of Marketing and Communications for the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) in Urbana, Illinois. I lead the development of communications and marketing strategies for the college. I develop goals and actions to help us promote the college from an academic, research and outreach perspective. I’m responsible for working with designers and photographers to create advertisements, promotional brochures, posters and publications; working with our web team to develop interesting, informative and successful websites; working with my interns to manage the social media presence for our college; and more. In addition, I manage the college’s branding strategy to ensure effectiveness, consistency, and alignment with goals to advance the mission of the College of ACES. I also serve as the Illini Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT) advisor and get to provide guidance to a wonderful group of students and help them find their place in the agricultural communications industry.

how did you get into this line of work? Four years ago, I decided it was time to find a job that required less travel so I could spend more time with my children who were 1 and 3 at the time. Although I loved my career at the National Swine Registry as the Director of Junior Activities, I felt it was time for a change for my family and I. A position was open at the University of Illinois in the College of ACES for a news writer covering animal sciences and crop sciences. With my degrees in agricultural journalism and animal science from Kansas State University, I thought this would be a great way to utilize my education and internship experiences in a career that would keep me closer to home. A couple years into my job, I found myself working on “marketing” efforts such as writing promotional brochure copy and working with designers to create departmental and college materials. At the time, our college did not have a marketing director and was restructuring its marketing and communications team. Eventually a position opened, I applied and was hired as the Assistant Director for Marketing and Communications. A year later, I was promoted to Director of Marketing and Communications. I’ve always considered myself a writer, but my careers kept pointing me toward marketingrelated fields.


The Shike family includes Jennifer, Dan, Hunter, Olivia and Harper (to the right), the newest edition.

what do you like about your job? I love the variety of projects I get to work on and the interesting people I get to interact with on a daily basis. I enjoy the challenge of getting projects done that make a difference and meet a client’s expectations. what are the toughest challenges for what you do? The toughest challenge for me is working for so many different people on a given project and finding ways to create open communication and a team atmosphere in order to create a successful end result. The university setting is often very decentralized when it comes to communications so it provides an interesting challenge! do you need a college degree in your profession? Yes, a bachelor’s degree at a minimum, but they would prefer a master’s degree. where should somebody go to get started in your line of work? I would recommend finding a media communications specialist position at a college or university to gain experience doing a variety of tasks related to higher education communications. what is a typical day on the job like for you? On a typical day, I grab a latte and head to my office. I sort through quite a few emails each day, although I

typically try to stay on top of my emails throughout the evening so it’s easier to delve into work the next day. Once I tackle urgent messages, I review my schedule which includes many meetings discussing and planning projects with clients, assisting my interns with their writing and tasks, and spending time doing my “job” of writing copy, editing brochures, planning projects, developing schedules, organizing meetings, and supporting all of our departments with their communications and marketing needs. I also oversee our college’s social media strategy and provide content direction on our college website. In addition, as the ACT advisor, I get to help students find internships, fill out applications and provide guidance to them on their educational and career pursuits. what would most surprise a student about your career? It’s a great job that allows me to indirectly be involved in agriculture. A big part of my job is encouraging potential and current students to find their future in agriculture, consumer or environmental sciences. I truly believe that our college is tackling some of the most critical issues facing our world and it’s exciting to help find ways to leverage our research and market the possibilities higher education provides.

On the job preparing for a college marketing opportunity (on-field promotion at a break) at a U of I football game.

anything you wish someone would have told you when you were in school? The best part and the hardest part of your job will be working with people. The actual work I do seems to be easy in comparison to the challenges of working with difficult people. As a fresh college graduate, I thought working hard and doing my work well was all I needed to be successful. But I’ve discovered since then that learning how to understand and successfully work with others is just as, if not more, critical to achieving success in your career. Difficult personalities exist in every job. And it’s normal – don’t let anyone fool you into believing it’s not! Learning how to deal with different personalities makes you a better and more empathetic person and ultimately, a better leader capable of achieving greater responsibility. Figuring out how to deal with different personalities can provide you with great satisfaction! It’s true that the best and the worst part of your job can be the same thing. I’ve learned that I won’t always please everyone (that can be the difficult part for me), but that I ultimately have to do my best work every day and find joy in that while trying to understand others along the way.

Keeping an eye on things

Want to stay in your warm bed while checking on that first-calf heifer due to calve anytime? Need to keep a careful watch on how the calves are hauling in the back of the trailer or to make sure that high-dollar herd bull is safe and sound in the trap? Here’s how with the help of today’s video technology. By Troy SmiTh

96 April 2014 • theshowcircuit.com


A

t first, they may be skeptical of newfangled gadgetry. A little skepticism can be a good thing. Still, farmers and ranchers have always been innovators. When the evidence supporting practicality is clear, they will adopt new technology. And those that are really innovative will adapt a given technology to fit unique situations and satisfy particular needs. It may only require a little tweaking here and there. So it’s not surprising that monitoring and surveillance cameras are finding many uses in production agriculture. They have security applications – like keeping an eye on areas where fuel, equipment or feedstuffs are stored. Mounting video cameras on trucks and tractors can make blind spots visible to operators. Without leaving the cab, farmers can monitor the transfer of grain from combine to grain cart, or silage from chopper to wagon. Cameras also help workers avoid spills by monitoring grain augers as trucks are loaded. It’s all about managing resources more effectively and efficiently. So it is with the application of video cameras to livestock management. The desire to save time and energy, and prevent injury or loss of animals has motivated increasing numbers of livestock producers to monitor their stock with video cameras. For example, mounting cameras inside a trailer allows for monitoring of valuable livestock during transport. But perhaps the most common application, by cattle producers, is for remote observation of cows and heifers during calving. It’s not that cattle folk mind climbing out of a warm bed and into their insulated bibs and boots, to trudge out to the calving barn on a

frigid night. Well, they may mind a little bit. They figure it’s worth the bother, though, when a first-calf heifer is found to be in labor and in need of assistance. Of course, a cattle caregiver sometimes finds there is nothing much going on in the calving barn. But after getting up, getting dressed and venturing out in the cold on a dry run, going to sleep again can be difficult. It is for Dale Hecht. “Our camera system has saved me from some sleepless nights,” grins Hecht, a Charolais breeder from Grove City, Minnesota. “I still have to get up and see what’s going on every couple of hours, but I don’t have to go to the barn every time. I can see from my bedroom if a trip outside is necessary. If everything’s okay, it’s a lot easier to go back to sleep.” Hecht says multiple cameras allow him to view every animal in the barn without disturbing them unnecessarily. Angus seedstock producer Rob Spencer, of McCook, Neb., says that advantage justifies the cameras used in his operation’s two calving facilities. From their respective residences, Spencer keeps tabs on the heifers while his son, Reid, monitors the mature cows. Their cameras provide views of heavies in each barn’s free-stall area, as well as really close-up females that may have been placed in box stalls before bedtime. “I think a guy sometimes does more harm than good when you go in the barn to check them, especially with first-calf heifers,” explains Spencer. “They’re usually nervous anyway, when they are getting ready to calve, and you can make things worse when you interrupt the process. With the cameras, we can watch without interrupting the delivery or the bonding between a heifer and

her calf. If all is going well, we stay out of the way. Sometimes we just watch the whole thing through the camera.” Spencer admits that video monitoring is no guarantee that a calf will never be lost. There are too many variables. But producers capable of recognizing signs of dystocia can see what’s happening and decide if and when it’s necessary to intervene. Spencer figures the saving of one purebred calf will pay for a system like his. “I think we paid for our set-up with the first cow we monitored while she calved,” states Hecht. “She delivered it okay – no problems there. But afterward, while she was eating the cleanings (afterbirth) she started to choke. If we hadn’t been watching and stepped in to help her, we may have had a dead cow and an orphaned calf.” Economic justification of video monitoring technology came easy for Harlem, MT, rancher Rodney Becker. Using cameras to watch cattle watering sites in distant pastures afforded Becker significant savings in time he otherwise would have spent checking stock tanks personally. He figures one summer’s savings in fuel costs alone paid for the monitoring system. “As the crow flies, it wasn’t that far,” says Becker, talking about the distance between his home ranch and another place he had leased for summer grazing. “But it was 52 miles by road, so a round trip was over a hundred miles.” Becker says the rented spread’s several pastures had good stock wells, but there was no electrical service. To get around that, a selfstarting, propane-burning generator was used to pump water. It worked April 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

fine, except for that long requisite trip, made every couple of days, to determine whether everything was still working.

that place way down. Besides the time and fuel saved, it gave me some peace of mind.”

“The place didn’t have much storage capacity, and I worried that the generator would quit or there would be a problem with a well, and the cattle would run out of water,” tells Becker. “I felt like I needed to check things pretty often, but every trip took half a day.”

Michael Delaney says his interest in designing video monitoring systems like Becker’s grew out of a need for similar monitoring solutions on his family’s cattle operation, near Grass Range. After returning to the ranch, the Montana State University animal science graduate began exploring practical applications of technology. Now he also operates a business dubbed CowCams, providing customized video monitoring and surveillance systems.

“Just about all of the wells were located in the bottoms of coulees, and not in line-of-site with the main antenna, so Michael mounted a (repeater) antenna and a solar panel on a little red wagon. Parked on a ridge, it would shoot the camera’s signal on to the hub,” explains Becker. When it was time to rotate cattle to another pasture, Becker also moved the camera and trailer-mounted repeater. The system worked every time, providing a view of each watering site. Becker says the clarity surprised him. “I checked the video every morning and again in the evening. I could see the generator, the float on the tank and the water coming in. I could see the salt blocks placed near the tank. I could even read ear tags on the cattle,” explains Becker. “It cut the number of trips to

Becker credits his wife with suggesting a video monitoring system as a potential solution. The specific solution to Becker’s dilemma was the brainchild of fellow-rancher Michael Delaney, who also installs video monitoring and surveillance systems. Since there was no electricity at that ranch, the system was solar powered. A camera mounted on a post near a stock tank would send a video feed, by directional antenna, to an omnidirectional antenna located at the building site. That served as a kind of “hub” from which video images were transmitted to Becker’s home ranch.

Delaney says wireless technology has greatly broadened their application, not only for monitoring calving barns and other facilities, but for long-range, remote site monitoring. It’s now possible to install cameras from which video feeds can be viewed from computers, electronic tablets and smartphones. The video can be watched on any internetcapable device, from almost anywhere in the world that an internet connection is available. Users can even remotely control movement of motorized pan-and-tilt cameras. However, Delaney says video monitoring systems can work without internet access. Systems can be config-

ured so users can view video images, from their home or office. But what if a camera was really mobile? A single camera that could be moved all over the ranch, by remote control, might be used to monitor multiple water tanks and supplement feeders. It could monitor animal health or forage utilization by grazing animals. Delaney says the technology already exists. It’s used by crop farmers to monitor plant health, germination rates and insect damage. “You can do that with drones,” says Delaney, referring to small, unmanned, low-flying aircraft equipped with video cameras. “I’m exploring the use of drones by livestock operations. I think that’s probably the next step.”

Above: installing a barn camera that can be viewed from computers or ipads in the house or anywhere internet access is available. however, a system can be setup without internet service and still allow you to view the cameras on your phone or computer in your house. The cameras can be stationary or mobilized and indoor or outdoor. most have a 30-foot to 50-foot range of night vision. Delaney uses a repeater antenna when the terrain makes a line of sight impossible or the water tanks are more than 30 miles from the house. The systems can be set up to send data over a cellular network.

SDSu AGR and Jackrabbit Classic Shows just finished up here last week with much success. we still seem to be living in a frozen tundra of below normal temps. The show season here in south dakota comes to a screaming halt as producers are managing their herds. many are starting their calving seasons and may God bless your hands as you take care of all new baby animals making their way into the world. The first shows of the spring will be the first part of june, the “Green chips” showdown pig show and the dakota southern cattlemen’s classic. watch the website for more info on those show. Thank you to all our military serving this great country!

a

dvanced reproductive technologies can increase the rate of genetic change and be an investment for future calf crops. However, embryo transfer (ET), in vitro fertilization (IVF), sexed semen and genetic preservation and cloning offer additional opportunities for marketing your cattle’s elite genetics. Auctions offering frozen genetics (cryopreserved embryos and semen) have become increasingly popular. Freezing and banking ET and IVF embryos can be a very effective way to generate early revenue from a cow or heifer that was recently purchased, or from a female that a breeder does not have an interest in selling. “Embryos are typically offered in packages of three at embryo auctions such as the Embryos On Snow event held each year at the National Western Stock Show,” says Dr. David Faber, president of Trans Ova Genetics. “Frozen embryos are very easy to transport across the country, so buyers from thousands of miles away can consider purchases without significant added costs.” Also, it allows an interested buyer to sample multiple, different breeding programs with a fairly small upfront investment. Herd bio-security is also a factor. Frozen embryos represent the safest means of introducing genetics from a herd health perspective. Offering even greater flexibility for a buyer is a right to flush package, which allows an interested breeder to pick the sire they would like to use for the flush. Many times these are sold on prominent females and there are guarantees on the number of embryos produced on these packages, but it is important to look into the details before making a purchase. Sorted semen provides additional value to potential buyers of frozen embryos. The combination of sexed semen in ET programs has allowed breeders to market sexed ET embryos on specific matings. This holds tremendous potential

to offer a package that is very specific to what buyers may be looking for. Once in awhile, a bull comes into high demand with very limited amounts of semen available. One advantage of IVF is the limited number of sperm cells it requires for fertilization. “If a client chooses not to sort the semen before use in IVF, we can often use one straw of semen on 5 to 10 cows at a time,” says Dr. Faber. “But, this is dependent on semen quality.” Some breeders are beginning to understand the marketing opportunity behind IVF technology. A breeder may collect oocytes from several of his leading donor cows, and sell fertilization “slots” to other breeders. Though some logistic coordination, this application of IVF gives the semen owner the option to harvest additional value from a single unit of semen or from given donor female. Finally, cloning offers possibilities for breeders to capture more from their genetic assets. A breeder with an elite animal can collect a cell line, or genetic preservation, for the purpose of cloning immediately, or just banking cells to keep for future use. Several clones have sold in recent years and the donor’s cell lines have been sold as a package with an animal, or kept with the understanding of the original owner. Breeders tend to view advanced reproductive technologies as investments that have long-term impact on our breeding programs, and they certainly are. However, these services also offer ways to market genetics in a way that adds revenue to a breeding program very quickly. Breeders have found creative ways to meet customer needs through these technologies and many other opportunities still exist.

Gray Show Cattle & Umbarger Show Feeds are excited to join forces and bring you a monthly article, in hopes to help juniors across the country. We hope the variety of topics brought to you in each issue are found to be beneficial and that juniors can find ways to incorporate them in to their very own programs.

MAINTAINING WEIGHT DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS

Hopefully by the time this issue hits print we have put this brutal winter behind us and are into spring. Spring brings a lot of excitement with it. The warmer air and sunshine make it easier to work calves and really start honing in on the projects as summer nears. It can also bring on concerns over weight. Weight issues manifest themselves in two completely different ways. Your calf can be too big or way behind. Both can present unique challenges to a 4-her and their families. Ideally everyone would like to weigh in between 1300-1350#. The one thing I think everyone needs to keep in mind is working to get your calf presented its best on show day. Certain cattle only need to weigh in the 1200-1250# to look their best and others will need to be 1400# plus to look their best. I always think it’s more important to weigh in where your calf will look the best and put the pressure on the judge to determine what’s acceptable. Let’s start off by talking about the heavyweights. If your calf is on big side, we need to look at getting a handle on his weight quickly, yet not freak out and jerk all of his feed away at once. Generally speaking calves will slow their rate of gain down as we hit the warmer months. Hopefully if your calf is on the big side he is further along on his fat deposition. We still have to get steers fat if you want to win in July and August. Generally speaking we will transition bigger calves over to one of our lower corn/energy rations for a couple months. Show Ready and Payload are the two products we offer in this category. Ideally the calf will still be eating around 15 lbs. a day of feed. We can also add additional fiber to the diet with products like apex, beet pulp, cotton seed hulls, wheat bran, and additional hay. It’s a good idea to supplement with a concentrated vitamin, mineral, and protein product during this period. Sure Champ is our product of choice. In some cases we will need to supplement with additional fat to maintain cover. Hopefully by slowing his weight gain down for a couple months we can go back on feed come June, July and August. This will freshen up your calf and make it easier on both him and you as you prepare for a show. It’s also important to exercise your calf at this point. Heavy calves can tend to get a little lazy and it’s important to get 20-30 minutes of good exercise a day to keep them moving comfortably. You can’t expect one to walk good on show day if they never have to walk at home. A calf that is behind on weight can present a more difficult challenge than an overweight calf. You will want to make sure your calf is on a finisher/high energy ration. Cattle Blaster and Impact are our rations of choice for this scenario. This will give them the opportunity to put on as much weight as possible in a short period of time. Ideally we would like to get this calf eating 25-30 lbs. of product a day. One way we accomplish this is by feeding multiple times a day. In some cases we will feed up to 4-5 times a day. We have found products like Vita Charge and Sure Champ to be helpful in these situations as they help cattle maintain an aggressive appetite. I also want to caution you from adding fat to these types of diets. While additional fat can be useful at times, it can also cause calves to go off of feed. Consumption is the name of the game and cattle that will eat will put on the weight. I hope these ideas are useful and I would stress for everyone to work with their local feed dealer or representative. It’s important to have a goal and plan in mind and then work to make it happen.

OKLAHOMA CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

T

he Oklahoma Youth Expo is in the books, and for many of our seniors it was the last time they will enter the show ring wearing the Blue and Gold. The last of the points are being put into the computer and the 2013-2014 point-year has ended.

In our house, it is a bittersweet moment knowing that our oldest son is ending his career in the show ring and our youngest is just getting into the swing of things. However, with every end comes a new beginning. In the short month between OYE and the Oklahoma Beef Expo, several members will be gearing up for a new show season with a new set of calves. The Beef Expo is scheduled for April 17-19, 2014, in Stillwater. We have a new schedule this year that will hopefully accommodate showmanship and the awards banquet along with the steer and heifer shows in an efficient manner and allow us to spend Easter with our families at home. Steer entries will be due Thursday afternoon and the showmanship contest will be held that evening. Friday will start with the prospect steer show and the awards banquet will be held that evening. The Oklahoma Beef Expo will conclude with the heifer show on Saturday. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to make your hotel reservations quickly. Our host hotels are the Holiday Inn and La Quinta Inn. I hope that each of you is planning to attend the awards banquet on Friday evening. This is a special time as we recognize all that our kids have worked to achieve the past year. On behalf of the OCCA Board of Directors, we sincerely appreciate Adam McClain with Supreme Trailer Sales and Michael Perry with Cimarron Trailer Sales coming on board as our new trailer sponsors. We are excited to partner with them and look forward to the diverse trailer options they can offer exhibitors. Be sure to stop by and visit with them during the Oklahoma Beef Expo! Once again thanks to all of our sponsors for their undying support without their help this organization could not function properly. Until next time, remember It All Starts Before Sunrise. Sincerely, JAY GrOSSnICkLAUS

The Tradit ion Some fol ks just don’t get it. se. They think owning cattle makes no sen , ipment It takes too much time, too much equ not to mention the expense. But the fondest memories of my life -t hey might think sound funnyad, were made possible by Mom and D ney. the mo ‘cause they spent the time and spent You see, the most important lessons hel ping values gr ow so str ong, come from loving cattle and passing that tradit ion on.

AJCA Junior Treasurer

ARKANSAS JUNIOR CATTLEMEN’S ASSOCIATION

inally it is that time of year again – SPRING! Arkansas Junior Cattlemen’s members around the state always anticipate the spring months for one specific reason: it is AJCA show season! With 24 possible shows already in just the past six weeks, it is safe to say that AJCA members have been extremely busy the past two months. It is not unusual for members and their families to spend a weekend making as long as a 6 hour drive just for one day and maybe two shows. And for what?

For me, the best words I can find to describe it are those in the poem “The Tradition.” Numerous people outside of the cattle industry simply do not understand where we get the drive to do what we do, but for me it’s simple. I can hardly find words to describe how much I have learned just from being raised on a farm and getting started in the show circuit. On top of that, the friendships I have established are irreplaceable and I have no doubt will last a lifetime. Being involved in organizations such as the Arkansas Junior Cattlemen’s Association has truly helped to mold me into the young adult that I am today. AJCA was a major factor in jumpstarting my passion into the beef industry, especially into beef advocacy. That reason alone is why it is so vital to motivate up and coming young people to get involved in the association. I would like all AJCA members to remember that all of this hard work and preparation, not to mention the traveling, would not be possible without the help of parents, grandparents, friends, agriculture teachers, county agents, 4-H leaders and many more. I encourage everyone to extend a huge thank you to those folks that help you accomplish everything you do! I look forward to seeing everyone throughout the rest of the show season and into the summer! All members should make sure to mark their calendars for Friday and Saturday, May 2nd and 3rd and plan to be at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds for the Arkansas State Fair Spring Livestock Show. Many alterations have been made to be excited about. Not only will the show be a DOUBLE POINTS show, but there will be six breed show field days, a picnic, a bake sale, and even fitting demonstrations by Stock Show University. If you have any questions or ideas about the association, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This bull is phenomenal, he is thick topped, huge butted, big boned and deep ribbed. Extremely sound and clean fronted.

PROFESSORTOPRODUCER By Dr. Paul Walker Professor Emeritus DI Walker Consulting

ObservatiOns of research

Conducted at IllInoIs state UnIversIty regarding the Feeding of by-Products From Corn ethanol Production • Dried Distillers with solubles (DDGS) are usually too expensive for inclusion in beef cattle diets • High moisture distillers grains with solubles (DGS) vary in water content. • Wet DGS contains more than 60% moisture, usually only 30%-40 % dry matter (DM). • Modified wet DGS contains less than 60% moisture, usually 50%-60% DM. • DDGS and DGS vary in crude fat (CF) content sometimes referred to as high fat DGS (HFDGS) and reduced fat DGS (RFDGS). • Condensed distillers solubles (CDS) is the syrup or stillage that is added to distillers grains to produce DDGS or DGS. • Ethanol plants centrifuge (spin) the CDS to remove some of the fat prior to adding CDS to distillers grains.

208 April 2014 • theshowcircuit.com


• RFDGS generally contains between 5.0% and 8.0% CF on a DM basis • HFDGS generally contains between 10.0% and 12.0% CF on a DM basis. • CDS contains about one-fourth the amount of crude fiber (NDF and ADF) on a DM basis as DDGS or DGS. • Most diets containing CDS, DGS, or DDGS must have added calcium to maintain a Ca/P ratio between 1.2:1 to 2:1. • The greatest biological efficiency (lbs. of gain to lbs. of feed required) occurs around 25% DGS dietary inclusion (DM basis). • The greatest economic efficiency (least cost: lb. of gain) occurs around 40% DGS dietary inclusion (DM basis) • Modified wet DGS can be fed up to 70% inclusion (DM basis). • DGS inclusion at 70% of DM equals greater economic efficiency than 0% DGS inclusion. • As dietary inclusion of high moisture DGS increases so does average daily feed intake (ADFI) • As dietary inclusion of HFDGS increases above 40%, dry matter intake (DMI) decreases. • As dietary inclusion of RFDGS increases above 40%, DMI increases. • Expect similar average daily gain (ADG) regardless of DGS inclusion rate. • Compared to control diets HFDGS improves feed efficiency (G: F ratio) more than RFDGS. • Performance of cattle fed RFDGS differs from cattle fed HFDGS especially at 70% inclusion. • At 70% inclusion RFDGS may decrease G: F ratio. • Dietary inclusion of modified wet DGS at 40% of DM regardless of fat content (HFDGS or RFDGS), has little effect on carcass characteristics. • At 70% dietary inclusion, RFDGS and HFDGS have a tendency to lower quality grade. • CDS inclusion at 20% of dietary DM has no effect on DMI, ADG, and G: F. • CDS inclusion at 40% of dietary DM may reduce DMI and increase G: F. • CDS inclusion has no effect on carcass characteristics. • CDS, RFDGS and HFDGS at 40% inclusion or less, result in similar quality grades as 0% by-product inclusion. • CDS, RFDGS and HFDGS have little effect on meat shelf life. • RFDGS and HFDGS dietary inclusion increase PUFA, PUFA/SFA and O6 fatty acids in beef tallow. • HFDGS increases PUFA, PUFA/SFA and O6 fatty acids more than RFDGS. • Limit feeding RFDGS, HFDGS or HFCDS to beef cows in late gestation and early lactation up to 58% of the diet DM will not negatively effect cow body weight and body condition score nor will it effect calf birth weight or dystocia. • Feeding RFDGS above 43% of diet DM may decrease cow milk production. • Limit feeding RFDGS up to 58% of the diet DM will not alter ADFI or daily DMI of beef cows. • Limit feeding RFDGS at 25%, 43% or 58% of the diet DM costs less per day than supplementing with shelled corn and soybean meal. • Limit feeding beef cows RFDGS at 25% of diet DM costs less per day than supplementing with 43% or 58% RFDGS. • HFDGS may reduce cow daily DMI when limit feeding beef cows corn silage based diets containing 20% RFDGS, HFDGS or HFCDS. • Supplementing beef cows with HFCDS may increase milk production compared to HFDGS or RFDGS when supplemented at 20% of DM. The take home message from this research is whether modified wet distiller’s grains contain higher fat (10%-12%) or lower fat (5%-8%), we can successfully feed finishing steers up to 70% of the diet dry matter without greatly compromising the outcomes. How much DGS is fed may depend on the amount of roughage included in the diets. All the finishing diets in these studies included 15% corn silage or ground grass hay on a dry matter basis. The secret to facilitating the dietary inclusion of DGS above 50% of the diet dry matter may be maintaining at least 15% roughage on dry matter basis within the diet. All things evaluated, 40% to 45% DGS inclusion may be the most efficacious inclusion level, but depending on feedlot performance, total feed costs and degree of management expertise, 70% DGS may return the most dollars over feed cost if the price is right. And, modified wet DGS is almost always more efficacious than DDGS.

Names of your current steers/heifers: 3 steers; Murray, Darth, Winston What’s your favorite stock show and why? My family loves to attend and show at the NAILE, but we also love being at the Illinois State Fair in August with friends and family.

222 April 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

What do you want to be when you grow up? Advocate for agriculture What quality/skill to you have that you’re most proud of? My passion for showing steers and volleyball. Favorite subject in school: Math Would you rather dance, play cards or hula hoop? Dance One weird habit/skill/fact about you: I have four pillow pets, three of them being cows. Favorite show memory so far: My shorthorn steer Si and I winning Grand Champion Land of Lincoln Steer at the 2013 Illinois State Fair and getting to sell in the Governor’s Sale of Champions. Least favorite show day task: Washing out black paint after the show. One of the upsides to having a shorthorn, no black paint! Most embarrassing stock show moment: I unexpectedly had to help out a friend in the show ring, my jeans were too short and I was wearing sperrys.


Bailey Rist Hometown: LaPorte, IN Age: 18 Breeds you show: Anything and everything, but preferably Charolais X Siblings: Only child Favorite activities outside the show ring: High School Shopping, hanging out with friends, and cooking Favorite movie/TV show: Tough choice between We’re the Millers and Safe Haven…I love comedies, but I’m also a huge sap for a mushy love story. Favorite singer/music group: Can not side with either Jason Aldean or Eminem for favorite singer, they are both great! Favorite book/author: I don’t get into reading novels, but just about any livestock publication will keep me intrigued Pet peeve: People blowing up about dumb little things, take a deep breathe and realize the world is not ending. Names of your current steers/heifers: Char steer: Mathers/ Chi steer: Dre/ CompChar heifer: Mistress What’s your favorite stock show and why? NWSS because I love going out and being immersed in the beauty of the mountains that I can’t find back home as well as the history of the yards and all the “big names” of the industry being together in one place. What do you want to be when you grow up? In a perfect world a stay at home stock show wife/mom, but in reality I aspire to become a livestock nutritionist and do journalism

work on the side. What quality/skill to you have that you’re most proud of? My work ethic. A big win would mean nothing to me if I didn’t follow through with the preparation and dedication before a champion backdrop picture. I take immense pride in the hours spent by myself on my own calves. Favorite subject in school: Anything to do with science, I like the challenge! Would you rather dance, play cards or hula hoop? Dance, even though I’m terrible except when I break it down in my car on solo road trips;) One weird habit/skill/fact about you: I am extremely OCD about certain things. Favorite show memory so far: Winning the 2013 Hoosier Beef Congress, getting picked and then a good friend of mine, Chloe Martin, being chosen for reserve and both of us hugging and balling our eyes out. I still get chills thinking back on it. Least favorite show day task: Breaking down stalls…I would break down, wash, and blow ten black calves alone before wanting to load the trailer up Most embarrassing stock show moment: A few years back I was in showmanship with my barrow and he was getting extremely irritable from a long day and decided he was done having fun and angrily ripped my jeans up to my knee, throwing my leg around like a doll.

Looking for some land? The state of Wisconsin is looking for buyers. According to a state budget bill, the Natural Resources Board will make at least 10,000 acres of specifically targeted land available for sale by June 30, 2017.

and for Sale in Wisconsin The land offered for sale will meet some or all of of a master planning process or other department action. the following criteria: • Parcels of land outside of a project boundary with difficult or no access for the department for management purposes; • Parcels of land outside of a project boundary with limited or no public access; • Parcels of land outside of a project boundary that have limited public recreational or natural resources value; • Parcels of land that have been identified for sale as a result of a NRB action; and • Parcels of land recommended for sale as a result

Land will be sold to three groups in order of priority: 1. Sale to a unit of government or Wisconsin sovereign tribal nation. 2. Private sale for trespass or boundary settlement or with adjacent property owner under special circumstances. 3. Public sale to the general public. Parcels under review can be viewed online at dnr. wi.gov – check out links under topics, lands and then real estate.

WINTER EXPECTED TO AFFECT FISH POPULATIONS

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the aftereffects of this year’s severe winter weather may particularly impact fishing in that state – and obviously the same logic applies to many other northern and Midwestern states as well. In mid-March the DNR put out this statement: “With each passing day of ice cover, there is a growing likelihood that several Iowa lakes and ponds will experience some level of natural winter fish mortality. We lose fish every year during the winter, but this has been a hard winter and we are expecting to see more lakes with some winter mortality, and a few lakes, like Minnewashta, are experiencing oxygen levels lower than typical,” said Jim Wahl, supervisor for fisheries in northwest Iowa. Minnewashta, Upper Gar and the lower end of East Okoboji Lake have low oxygen levels and ice anglers reported seeing dead fish through their underwater cameras in Minnewashta. Other lakes with low oxygen levels are Eldred Sherwood in Hancock County, Clark Lake, in Cerro Gordo County, and Sabula and Spring lakes on the Mississippi River.

HEADS U P OHIO DEER H U N TER S

Y

ou may want to keep an eye on upcoming changes to deer bag limits if you hunt in Ohio. While these changes haven’t been voted on yet, if passed they could alter your hunting plans next time you take to the field. Here is what the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has to say about it:

“After considering public input and reviewing data, modifications were made to the 2014-2015 hunting regulations proposals that the Ohio Wildlife Council will vote on at their next meeting…. “The amended proposal states that shotguns and pistol cartridge rifles used for white-tailed deer hunting be loaded with no more than three shells in the magazine and chamber combined. The current hunting regulation states a shotgun must be plugged if it is capable of holding more than three shells. The initial proposal required a magazine plug or inert ammunition to limit capacity for pistol cartridge rifles. “Deer bag limit adjustments were proposed in five counties. The updated bag limit proposal would lower limits in Trumbull County to three deer and Mercer County to two deer. The antlerless permit was proposed to be removed from Hardin, Knox and Lawrence counties, where the bag limit remains three deer. Hunters may harvest only one antlered deer in Ohio, regardless of method of take or location. “The ODNR Division of Wildlife remains committed to properly managing Ohio’s deer populations through a combination of regulatory and programmatic changes.” The Ohio Wildlife Council will vote on proposals at its next regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, April 9. Go to wildohio.com for more information about deer and deer hunting.

“Our lakes froze early and have been under ice in some areas for three and a half months. We are still finding 20 to 33 inches of ice so it will be around for some time. The last time we saw a winter like this was in 2008,” he said. “When lakes freeze early and receive a blanket of snow, it effectively shuts off the sunlight f rom reaching aquatic plants, which stops photosynthesis and the flow of oxygen into the water. The longer the ice and snow cover the lake, the less oxygen is in the water and available to the fish. Wahl said low oxygen levels have been found in a variety of lakes, from the north to the south. An additional factor in Lake Minnewashta could be the decomposition of a late season algae bloom that robbed additional oxygen from the water compounding the early ice, snow cover factor. “The DNR has taken steps to prevent winter fish kills from low oxygen by placing aeration systems at a few lakes with a history of winter kills. Aeration systems keep a section of the lake from freezing, allowing some oxygen into the water; but it does not guarantee a lake won’t winterkill during extreme winters. Wahl said even during the most severe winter, a complete kill is seldom observed and fish populations rebound quickly. “We expect some fish loss but we just won’t know the extent of it until we can get our survey boats on the water and sample lakes that had low winter oxygen readings,” Wahl said. “
