Fresh & Feminine

TM

“The secret to eye appealing show cattle!”

Available June 1st.

Feminine shape and freshness throughout the front end of your show animal spells ultimate success or failure in the show ring today. Fresh & Feminine™ is not just another supplement. Tried and true for many years, Fresh & Feminine™ has been the secret, fed at Sullivan Farms for over ten years. It has been an integral part of their feeding regiment and credited with producing outstanding freshness and ultimate show ring success of their cattle at major shows year-in and year-out. This is how this feed supplement works ... the superior science of Fresh & Feminine features a combination of strategic vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and a high concentration of by-pass protein sources. This chemistry boosts metabolic fat burning in the body that targets specific areas of the body to reduce fat content, most notably in the neck and brisket area. As a result, the heifer has a more feminine, attractive physique and even moves better. This helps to offset the results seen from aggressive, high energy show cattle diets. All natural and fertility safe for open heifers, bred heifers, steers and bulls. Simply top dress 6 oz. per head per day of this pelleted supplement on your current ration until desired freshness has been achieved.

“The simple science to freshen up a front end while maintaining the body capacity desired. We have had tremendous success with Fresh & Feminine™ for over 10 years. You will noticeably see the results.” - John Sullivan

Revive LITE

TM

NEW! PRODUCTS

Want something lighter for your hair?

Revive LITE™ features ALL of the great conditioning properties of our ever popular “original” Revive, just in a lighter, more refined approach. This formula doesn’t weigh the hair down. Great for any time of year, but especially valuable during warmer months when hair coats become thinner. You will love how light if feels in the hair with a rich, unbeatable deep shine. The extra light cosmetic grade oils contained in Revive LITE do not glob or allow the hair to stick together. This actually creates added lift to the hair with more hair separation. When applied, this new formula lightly coats and easily penetrates the hair and absorbs into the skin without clogging the pores. Why does this matter? Most products can only coat the outer surface of the hair to add temporary shine. Revive LITE, however, with its lighter molecular structure, can actually penetrate deep into the cortex of the hair strand to infuse essential nutrients and lipids for the utmost moisturizing and hydrating properties. Another benefit, it has tremendous staying power. Since most other hair treatments just coat the outside of hair, they rinse off easily while washing. But not Revive LITE. It has penetrated inside the hair, less likely to rinse away. By absorbing easily into the skin for outstanding nourishment, Revive LITE does not sit heavy on the skin heating up your animal. Revive LITE is also fortified with Sullivan’s advanced VITA HAIR Nourishing Vitamin Package to infuse the hair with proven hair vitamins for natural moisturizing to create soft, manageable and stronger hair coats. A new science breakthrough for fresh, healthy, hydrated skin and hair.

Available June 15th.

SIRED BY TROUBADOUR Grand Champion Steer 2014 San Antonio - Bred by Colby Collins

SIRED BY TROUBADOUR Owned by Bird and Graves TROUBADOUR Watch for his full sib brothers on the market this fall.

Special Thank to the Breeders & Exhibitors of Troubadour Progeny...

The Cream of the Crop sire, Troubadour, sired the Grand Champion Steer at San Antonio in 2014, to highlight his growing list of accomplishments. Troubadour has also sired many more champion steers and heifers. His biggest accomplishment however, may be the success of his daughters. A daughter prodcued a $68,000 fall born steer this past season. There are several high dollar steers and herd bull prospects emerging out of Troubadour daughters. The hardest part of it all, is that at seven years of age, he is still sound and looks great, but he has not froze semen in over a year. Semen is limited and will likely only sell at auction.He has sired leading herd bull and AI sires, such as Werewolf (Olsen), Yellowstone (Yocham), Choppin’ Wood and Steamroller (Lautner). - THF PHAF - Working Consistently to Produce Major Champion Steers, High Selling Females and Leading Sire Prospects 3/4 Charolais with a Club Calf Look • Registered in the American Charolais and Chianina Associations KRIS BLACK - BLACK HEREFORD RANCH | RIDLING FARMS | CHUCK BARTON FAMILY | JOHN SULLIVAN | BIRD CATTLE CO.

ARKANSAS JUNIOR CATTLEMEN’S ASSOCIATION

By: Michelle Rieff, AJCA State Director

AJCA MEMBER FEATURE | ZAChARy ANdREwS

F

ourteen-year-old Zachary Andrews is an 8th grader from a town in southwest Arkansas called Camden. Zachary got involved in the Arkansas Jr. Cattlemen’s Association because he wanted to take advantage of showing in the many AJCA sanctioned shows to improve his showmanship skills, hopefully take on a leadership role in the association and to learn more about the cattle industry. His first livestock project was a Hereford show heifer named Premium. Zachary was only five years old when he and Premium headed off to the county fair. Zachary says, “I remember that she was huge compared to me! I bought her at a Hereford consignment sale from a breeder in Kentucky. After retiring her from the show barn, I continued to show many of her offspring. She was the prefect first project.” Like many youth, that first heifer project becomes a foundation for their herds.

best breed of cattle is Herefords. “This breed has so much to offer. Great show heifers and even better brood cow,” he says. He also reports that Herefords are the best breed to use in showmanship competitions. His favorite saying is, “Being the best is a great thing. But doing your best shows greater potential of who you are.” He applies this to his life by knowing that you don’t always have to win grand champion to be the true winner or to be respected by your peers.

Being the best is a great thing. But doing your “best shows greater potential of who you are.”

Zachary’s favorite part of showing cattle is the people he meets. “I have met some really great people that feel the same way I do about the cattle industry. I love it and I love showing!” He says showing cattle teaches him life skills that he can use every day. Those skills include learning respect, responsibility and how to have good sportsmanship. Zachary’s personal goal for this show season is to win the Arkansas State Fair Hereford heifer show with a bred and owned heifer. Last year, he showed a heifer he raised all the way to the winners circle. He was thrilled to leave the state fair with the Reserve Grand Champion Hereford heifer. This particular heifer was also the youngest heifer in the entire show! Obviously, Zachary believes the

Zachary’s role models are his parents. “My parents are a tremendous help with everything in my life. They never complain about anything. Mom teaches school and takes care of all the cattle records. Dad comes home every day from his job and goes straight to the barn to help with the cattle. They do so much for me and my older brother. I want to be just like them,” he claims. At Camden Fairview Middle School, Zachary is president of the Beta Club, a member of the yearbook staff, part of Project Lead the Way and a member of Students for Christ. He is also active in his church youth ministry. Zachary’s future plans are to become a pharmacist and own a Hereford cattle ranch. AJCA is proud of the commitment Zachary Andrews has to his cattle and to our association.


Cattle Make Many Positive Contributions W e all know about how cattle feed the population by providing us with a highquality protein source. But we tend to overlook the alternative products or the various byproducts that aren’t a steak or a hamburger. For example, the firemen owe a lot of credit to cattle. If it weren’t for cattle’s blood (more specifically the hemoglobin) that makes a suit fireproof, they wouldn’t be able to go in a burning building to rescue civilians from perishing in the blaze. Bet you didn’t know it, but cattle are what won World War II for the United States. How do you move troops from one position to another? By transporting them in jeeps and tanks? What goes into the tires of the tanks or in the soles of the soldiers’ combat boots? The answer is cattle. Cattle serve as a source of rubber that isn’t able to be compared to any other source. We all have cattle to thank. WithCOLTE MOShER, wyATT MOShER’S yOUNgER BROThER. out them, the world wouldn’t be the way it is. The Axis would have won. Every day at school we would be saying, “Hail, Hitler!” rather than saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Another area where cattle are taken for granted is in the medical field. Cattle byproducts are used abundantly in the medical field to treat and heal patients. This may range from insulin for diabetics, to heart valves for people who are missing theirs. Being involved in cattle industry is a great source of enjoyment for my little brother Colte Mosher. Colte is someone whose life has been saved by the use of cattle byproducts to replace and repair heart valves. You see, he was born without a needed valve in his pulmonary artery. Due to his heart valve problem, he isn’t allowed to compete in contact sports so we turned to youth activities with our cattle. Every day, seven days a week, he and I begin and end our daily routine the same way. I wake him up and we go feed the show cattle. The day ends for Colte and me with the releasing of the show animals after they have had their nightly feeding and we have performed our daily grooming tasks. We work hard to keep them in peak condition. The constant work that it takes to keep the show cattle in optimum condition and the farm running at its highest level keeps our family busy year round. Whether it is fixing the fence where the bull got out, catching a cow in natural standing heat, breaking calves for future show prospects, or giving the cattle their vaccinations, the farm keeps all of us active and working as a team. Even with all the farm chores, Colte, a high school freshman, still keeps his grades up to our parent’s standards. Colte will be having his fourth open heart surgery this summer right after we return from the National Junior Limousin Show & Congress in July that is being held in Amarillo, Texas. He made it known to the doctor that he wasn’t going to miss the big show! I am very proud to be Colte Mosher’s big brother.

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.

TURNING A SHOW HEIFER INTO A COW We have spent the last couple issues talking about heavy weight and light weight steers and how to best feed these calves. This issue I want to spend time on the girls. The summer brings about plenty of opportunity to show off your best heifers. While this is a fun time of year, and it brings out some of the best competition in the country, it can be very stressful on the cattle. It is important to keep some things in mind as you travel up and down the road and as you not only prepare your heifer for show but also to be a cow. The first thing I want to focus on is body condition. We all know you have to have the right amount of condition to get along in the show ring, however too much fat can lead to problems down the road. Payload and Show Ready are the two feeds we recommend for heifers entering the summer months. These feeds are designed to add body and keep heifers fresh and bloomy without putting on excess condition. Apex is another product we recommend in the summer. It is a pelletized beet pulp, citrus pulp product that includes Amaferm and will add body and dimension to your cattle. It is also very important to make sure your heifers are bred and maintain that pregnancy through the hot summer months. We like to recommend feeding Concept Aid Pellets during this time to help ensure a first calf pregnancy and retention during the first 60 days. Cool fresh water and good quality hay are also essentials for any calf during the summer months. Hopefully this summer brings good luck and banners to our readers. Remember keeping your heifers fresh and cool with the right amount of body condition will help bring home the blue and purple ribbons we are all after.

OKLAHOMA CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

Wow! Is it almost June already? Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. I will admit that I’m not the first one to keep up with sports statistics and award recipients, but I did see that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was named the Most Valuable Player in the NBA as well as the scoring champion for this season. This is a well-deserved award for the leader of our young, but very talented team that has brought a lot of recognition to our state. During his acceptance speech, Durant thanked everyone who has contributed to his success. He thanked his teammates, coaches, team executives and support staff along with his family. In his acceptance speech, Durant said “I put in so much work and so many people helped me. I feel like we all won it. Our equipment guy gave me a hug today and said ‘This is my first MVP,’ and I thought about that. And I said, ‘Yeah, this is our first MVP.’ I couldn’t have done it without the teammates, without the trainer. Everybody. We all just did this together.” As I think about how Durant’s speech can serve as an example to everyone regardless of where they are in life, I especially think about the OCCA. Just as Durant was named the MVP, he realized he would not have achieved success without the support of those around him; the same applies to our exhibitors. When we attend a show, it is the exhibitor’s name that is called over the PA system, but often you find a support system of family and friends behind each of these young kids. While it is only one exhibitor who can enter the ring, I am sure any exhibitor would say they would not be where they are without their support system. I am proud to be involved in an organization that involves so many MVPs!

BUSINESSMINDED

F

inancial bullies come in all shapes and sizes: husbands who insist on control of their wives’ money; wives who control finances by manipulating the purse strings; domestic partners who insist on making all financial decisions. In fact, bullying is common behavior. A 2013 survey conducted

by Credit Karma found that 1 in 10 respondents classified their spouse or live-in partner as a “financial bully.” 1

Portrait of a bully Couples often argue over money, but sometimes one partner can exhibit behavior associated with financial bullying. By definition, a bully is someone who uses his or her influence or strength to intimidate others and force them to do what they want. Financial bullies control household finances by restricting access

98 June/July 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

to accounts, limiting spending and withholding money. Typical bully behaviors include making their partners show receipts for all purchases, preventing them from having credit cards, making them feel guilty for shopping, or requiring them to live on an allowance. Bullies may even threaten to leave knowing this would place their partner in financial trouble. The young are especially vulnerable to financial bullying, according to the Credit Karma survey, which found that:1 • Those aged 18 to 34 are three times more likely to say they are financially bullied than those aged 55 or older. • Those with children under the age of 18 in the household are more likely to classify their mate as a bully than those who don’t live with children. • Over one-fifth of married 18- to 34-year-olds surveyed said they would get a divorce “if money were no object.”


Are You Being Financially Bullied? Courtesy of: Matthew E. O’Donnell Vice President Morgan Stanley

What to do about it If you think you are being financially bullied, there are ways to take back control of your finances. First, discuss your concerns with someone you trust, sharing with them the specific behaviors you have encountered. An objective ear will help you better gauge how real or severe the problem actually is. Next, consider involving a third party such as a financial advisor when making major financial decisions. He or she can effectively act as a facilitator, and can help you formulate mutually satisfactory goals and strategies. Finally, look for ways to build trust between you and your partner. Finances, like other aspects of a relationship, are best tackled with transparency and communication, and mutual trust is a critical first step.

Dan Hoge inducted into Wall of Fame; More than $166,000 raised for scholarships Dan Hoge, professor of animal science at Black Hawk College East Campus, recently was inducted into the Black Hawk College East Foundation’s Wall of Fame.

science in the auditorium has become a legacy experience with lectures only part of the equation.

Nearly 300 colleagues, former and current students, industry leaders as well as former inductees – including one of the five original founders of Black Hawk College, James Golby – attended the Wall of Fame event.

“Students are quick to mention animal science labs among their favorite BHC experiences,” Dowell said. “And Hoge’s animal science labs set the standard for the hands-on education we pride ourselves on and our students seek and appreciate. Hoge’s animal science class – both lecture and lab – is a rite of passage for students, at least two generations of students.”

Wall of Fame honorees have provided outstanding service and/or leadership to the foundation and/or the Black Hawk College East Campus as well as the community. Hoge – a Black Hawk College institution with a reputation throughout the livestock industry as one of the winningest livestock coaches in the United States – certainly fulfilled the criteria.

“Impact and outreach – it’s what has lead students year-in and year-out to travel to Black Hawk College to study with Dan Hoge,” she said. anD livestock juDging?

For 44 years, he worked to develop the animal science and livestock judging curriculums into one of the most active and successful community college programs in the United States. Numerous contacts Hoge has made over the years with leading livestock breeders and farm managers have provided students the opportunities to visit some of the best livestock operations in the country, exposing them to outstanding cattle, swine, sheep and goats as well as the producers themselves.

“It is more than just evaluating animals; it’s taking classroom knowledge out of the classroom and putting it into practice. It’s learning to be part of a team. It’s dedication and commitment. It’s winning with humility and not winning with grace. It’s analytical and critical thinking. It’s practicing communication and political skills. It’s building self-confidence. And with Hoge’s students, it’s about relationships, memories and lifelong friendships,” Dowell said.

His students have benefitted from the interaction, excelling in the classroom and show rings across the nation, becoming leaders in their own right as judges, breeders, producers, educators, and in some cases, serving as directors of national livestock associations and publications. Hoge has educated and positively influenced more than 4,000 animal science students, more than 700 of whom have participated on the Black Hawk College livestock judging teams. He has coached teams to victory for 19 combined championships at the Houston Stock Show, American Royal, National Western Stock Show and North American International Livestock Exposition as well as 40 National Barrow Show judging championships. Paying tribute was Chanda Dowell, vice president for East Campus, who said that AG 141 and AG 285 are not animal science, they are “Hoge’s Animal Science.” These two courses boast such a high attendance they are held in the auditorium, his favorite place to teach, a place he calls home.

“Among Dan’s greatest skills and contributions are recognition and celebration. Dan drew the road map for student recognition at the East Campus,” she said.

“Among our campus’ greatest strengths is the way we recognize students. It’s personal. It’s genuine. It’s encouraging. And the students are full participants in the recognition process. Recognition doesn’t happen to them, they are involved in it. And it is all modeled on the way Dan Hoge has been recognizing his ag students for Hoge’s animal science labs decades. But I am not the only one who listens, watches, learns and appreciset the standard for the ates what Dan has created. His hands-on education we colleagues past and present do pride ourselves on and our too,” Dowell added.

we have as teachers today, and to have what we have, are due in part to Dan.” Steve Spivey, chair of the Black Hawk College East Foundation and Wall of Fame Committee as well as an East Campus alumnus and member of the 1975 Livestock Judging Team, talked about the measure of a coach. “The truest measure of success of a teacher and coach is not their own individual accomplishments and awards, nor is it measured by wins and losses and championships. The truest measure is the success and accomplishments of their students in their chosen professions and careers. All the trophies, awards and honors eventually fade into memory. It is the impact on the students, helping them achieve their potential and success regardless of their path in life; these are the things that endure and these are the things that are so much more important than any of the trophies, awards and honors gathered along the way. That is why we are inducting Dan Hoge into the Wall of Fame tonight,” Spivey said. Jack Ward, COO of the American Hereford Association, an East Campus alumnus and member of the 1984 Livestock Judging Team, represented the Seedstock Breed Associations who committed $10,000 toward the Dan Hoge Endowed Scholarship fund. Supporting the fund were: the National Swine Registry, American Berkshire Association, American International Charolais Association, American Maine-Anjou Association, American Shorthorn Association and the American Hereford Association.

strumental in the development of the computer program and its application to agriculture; Jon Wolf, professor emeritus, credited for developing and implementing the horse science program; and his father, Dan Hoge. For the first time, an endowed scholarship was set up in honor of a Wall of Fame inductee. Steve Spivey, chair of the foundation board of directors, said plans for the banquet began in September with a cash goal set for $50,000. Soon the amount was revised to $100,000 and then $150,000 as cash and pledges were sent in. At the event’s conclusion, it was announced that $166, 218 in cash and pledges have been raised for the Dan Hoge Livestock Judging Scholarship. The interest will generate $4,000 to $5,000 in student scholarship annually to livestock judging students attending the East Campus. Liz Breedlove, executive director of the BHC East Foundation, thanked and recognized the contributors who made the scholarship possible. “We trust that your lives will be enriched as you make a difference to BHE livestock judging students, now and in the future,” she said. The night culminated with David Emerick, chair of the Black Hawk College Board of Trustees, announcing the renaming of the East Campus auditorium to the “Dan Hoge Auditorium.”

Dr. Daniel Shike, assistant professor in the Department of Animal Science at the University of Illinois, an East Campus alumnus and member of the 1998 Livestock Judging Team, talked about the importance of being a lifelong learner. “I knew when I was a student at Black Hawk that Dan Hoge was an amazing teacher and coach. But it wasn’t until I was teaching and coaching that I ever gave much thought to why Dan Hoge was so effective as an educator. Certainly the fact that he is a well-spoken, hard-working, passionate and competitive person contributes to his success. But I believe on of the reasons he has been so effective at teaching is that he has never stopped learning. Dan Hoge is the definition of a ‘lifelong learner.’ He continues to stay current (if not ahead of the competition) on all aspects of animal science and is always fully aware of industry trends and type changes across all species of livestock.” Dr. Mark Hoge, associate professor of animal sciences at Western Illinois University, an East Campus alumnus, member of the 1993 Livestock Judging Team as well as Hoge’s son, reminisced about growing up with Dan Hoge, the time his dad was away from home, the family vacations spent at the Illinois State Fair, and learning from his father. “I was raised by college freshmen and sophomores, and now I’m raising my own sons the same way,” the younger Hoge said. They made a significant impact on his childhood. Dr. Hoge also talked about the Mount Rushmore of Black Hawk College East Campus – Eldon “Bud” Aupperle, professor emeritus, who began the ag program at East Campus; Lanny Anderson, professor emeritus, one of the original instructors in the agriculture program and in-

PROFESSORTOPRODUCER

Increasing Corn Grain Yields By Dr. Paul Walker Professor Emeritus | DI Walker Consulting

I

n this issue, I am going to deviate from my regular nutrition column to inform you about the results of my research team’s last agronomic study. Many cattle producers, feedlot operators and show cattle enthusiasts, also grow corn grain. Therefore, I think you will find this article interesting. This multi-year study was partially funded by DuPont-Pioneer and included assistance from Dr. Fred Owens and Leo Brown. These experiments, also, were part of Tyler Kaufman’s Masters Thesis. The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of seed orientation at planting and row direction on grain yield, grain nutrient composition and the feeding value of whole-plant corn silage. Seed orientation refers to placement of the corn seed in the soil during planting i.e. tip down, germ facing across row (facing to the side) and germ facing within row (facing in the direction of the row). Row direction can be either north to south or east to west.


There are several speculations why seed placement at planting maybe important. For example, because wind direction during the growing season is generally from the west or southwest, since I was a little boy, farmers always told me to plant corn rows north to south rather than east to west because if a wind storm (generally from the westward direction) flattens the corn plants, the corn field can be harvested in both directions (by traveling north to south) but flattened east to west rows can only on be harvested in one direction (usually by traveling from the east). The other rationales for considering the effects of seed orientation at planting include: Corn seed emerges faster when planted tip oriented down as opposed to random orientation which all planters currently do i.e. lay some seed with the tip pointing upward, some seeds with the tip pointing downward and some seed laying flat. The first leaf emerges on the side of the kernel with the germ exposed and successive leaves emerge by alternating around the stalk. Uniform leaf orientation of stalks within a row and of stalks across a row affect grain yield, grain composition and plant growth by affecting sunlight exposure and amount of photosynasis. Row direction may affect plant exposure to sunlight, subsequent photosynthesis and ultimately grain yield and possibly plant growth.

This study compared grain yield (bushels: acre), silage production (tons: acre) and corn grain composition. Control plots were planted with a conventional John Deere planter that orients seeds randomly, as all planters do currently. Treatment plots were planted by hand (isn’t graduate student labor great) using wooden jigs and straws and placing corn kernels within the straws to obtain proper kernel orientation (tip down, germ facing across the row or germ facing within the row).

The results of this study were very interesting and the bullet points are: • Orienting germ direction at planting increased grain yield. • In year one across row > within row> randomly planted. • In year two across row = within row > randomly planted. • Planting the kernel tip down increased grain yield in both years, whether the germ faced across row or within the row. • Seed orientation altered kernel density at grain harvest, across row = within row > randomly planted. • Seed orientation altered starch content of the kernel at grain harvest, across row = within row < randomly planted. • Seed orientation increased oil and protein, and decreased starch composition of the kernel at grain harvest compared to randomly planted seeds. • For each 1% increase in starch content, oil decreased 0.38% and protein decreased 0.44%. • Grain yield at harvest was greater for randomly planted north to south rows than randomly planted east to west rows. Perhaps plants in north to south rows get more sunlight and have greater photosynthesis activity than plants in east to west rows. • Kernel weight at harvest was greater for randomly planted north to south rows than for randomly planted east to west rows. • Across row seed orientation at planting increased plant dry matter content and grain yield at corn silage harvest compared to within row and randomly planted seed. • Planting kernels tip down decreased the number of dead leaves per plant when harvested for corn silage compared to randomly planting kernels. • Increased corn silage yield was observed for across row germ orientation compared to randomly planted seeds. Increasing corn grain yield and corn silage production in the future will come from technology not yet developed. One technology that equipment manufacturers may utilize may be planters capable of specific kernel orientation at planting. And, when logical, farmers should consider planting rows in a north to south direction. Size of field, shape of field and slope of terrain may affect this planting decision. This was a fun study to conduct, with interesting results.

Over a decade ago we chose to purchase an annual contract with The Show Circuit and have an ad in every issue. I can honestly say that this was one of the best business decisions we ever made. The Show Circuit is, has been, and will continue to be, at the forefront of the livestock industry.

They are quITe SImply The beST aT whaT They do! Randy & Jamie Mullinix, Purple Reign Cattle Company

[

In the competitive business in which we operate today, effective dollars spent on advertising to reach a specific market becomes critical. The Show Circuit “fits the bill” for us in that department. The Show Circuit’s subscribers are the target market that we have attempted to appeal to and identify. We will be hosting our 10th bid off sale in September, throughout those 10 years, our sale has made significant revenue increases with each successive year. We attribute a large part of this gain due to the June/July and August advertisements that we have placed in the Show Circuit. A large share of our customers, through out the country, identify our business by our advertisements in the Show Circuit. We are incredibly impressed and appreciative of Roland and his staff’s hard work and attention to detail when designing our advertisement. We plan to continue using the Show Circuit as our primary marketing tool for many years to come. ~ Ward & Christyne Eckloff, Eckloff Show Cattle, Minden, NE

The Show Circuit covers your needs on all the latest cattle and producers in the industry. Whether at home or on the road, it is your main map to guide you on your travels this fall and throughout the year. Beyond the Internet, if you want your ads seen this is the place. ~ Luke Doris

It’s important for us here at FSF to advertise in The Show Circuit throughout the year to help expand our business from coast to coast. We feel confident in presenting our stock thru The Show Circuit to express the type of cattle we try to raise and perfect. As many show stock enthusiasts look forward to The Show Circuit publication, we feel it to be a vital part to our growing business! ~ Tom Farrer & Taylor Farrer, Farrer Stock Farms

Cattle Visions advertises with The Show Circuit because we know the elite producers and exhibitors across the nation receive it and study it. We enjoy working with the design team and appreciate the cost-effective rates. ~ Lance Ellsworth,

Partnership Owner, Cattle Visions

The Show Circuit is great to work with. They are the premier leader of the show cattle publications! We feel they are competitively priced and very effective in terms of outreach to our customer base. And the August Show Circuit can also be referred to as the “Show Cattle Phone Book,” because everybody has an ad in it. They are definitely the go-to magazine of the show cattle industry! ~ Brad Smith, Smith Cattle Company
