Naturally Healthy Hair ... HOW? Kleen Sheen Do you need more life to your hair? . . . Revive it. A great product to promote healthy and beautiful hair coats! The foaming action of Revive dissipates into the hair to moisturize and bring life, body and freshness to dull, dry hair without leaving the hair waxy or limp. High in Vitamin E and the VITA HAIRTM package to be naturally healthy for skin and hair. Refer to the bottom to learn how VITA HAIRTM will enrich your skin and hair. The natural antioxidants contained in Revive stimulate circulation within the scalp to increase nutrient absorption into the hair follicles for faster, healthier hair growth. Great for daily use at home to nourish the hair or use it at the show as a grooming aid. • Nourishing High-Grade Lanolin, Olive Oil and Plant Seed Oils • Organic Natural Conditioner

Kleen Sheen is the daily hair care formula for show cattle that is naturally healthy for hair. It is a fantastic conditioning sheen for producing healthy looking, well managed hair with that “Ultra” shine. Features the VITA HAIRTM nourishing vitamin package and moisturizers that boost hair strength and create better conditioned hair coats. Refer to the bottom to learn how VITA HAIRTM will enrich your hair coat. Repels dust and dirt to keep animals cleaner. This light sheen is perfect for daily hair care, clipping and show day grooming. • Naturally Healthy for Hair • Biodegradable • Purifide: non-toxic, non-petroleum, non-abrasive

Same successful formulas, with an added Vitamin Package to help boost the quality of hair.

VITA HAIR™ is an advanced nutrient package that infuses the hair with proven hair vitamins for ...

• Faster Hair Growth • Thicker Hair • Increased Shine • More Body & Volume • Healthier Skin • Improved Nutrient Absorption How do the VITA HAIR™ Nourishing Vitamins work? Biotin vitamin is the first vitamin thought of when considering HAIR GROWTH. The major benefit of Biotin is its ability to strengthen both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, where the hair is produced, which prevents hair breakage and dryness. This is a scientifically proven crucial step in the natural hair growing process. One of the chief things that slows hair growth is damaged hair. Biotin enriched hair has increased elasticity of the cortex which prevents breakage. This enables healthy, FASTER HAIR GROWTH. Biotin also thickens the actual hair cuticle providing a fuller appearance. Pro-Vitamin B-5 is considered the king of all HAIR CARE vitamins. Pro-Vitamin B-5 stimulates healthy scalp circulation which leads to improved hair health. It coats the hair and seals its surface, lubricating the hair shaft making the hair shine. It possesses superior long term moisturizing properties because of its unique ability to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation to the skin and supports capillary growth. The skin needs to have proper circulation in order to keep the hair follicles alive and thriving. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves leading to increased nutrient absorption into the hair follicles, which speeds hair growth. January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

WLE Cruisin Susan T26 - Dam of JF American Pride

View video of American Pride at www.janssenfarms.com 0987X OF MSF

“A picture tells a thousand words. We’ve owned some of the Simmental breeds greatest sires, but we believe with all our hearts that JF American Pride 0987X is the most special animal we have ever had the chance to be a part of, it is as simple as that. We’re not selling “semen packages” or have any marketing gimmicks on this bull, just straight up selling semen to help better our breed and the cattle industry. Please take time to view the video and discover he is the soundest made, biggest bellied, most attractive Purebred Simmental ever to walk. His performance and eye appeal set him a part, we welcome your calls to discuss American Pride. We would like to give a special thanks to Jack McCoy of Meadow Springs Farm, Lafayette, Indiana for selling us this remarkable bull and his powerful dam and to Jeff Miller, Cutler, Indiana for pointing us in his direction!”

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 wellbalanced package of muscle, bone, style, hair, and incredible structure.

Showmanship Points by Division Oklahoma Club Calf Association - November 2011

When you read this, the holidays will be over and you will be back to showing. Most will be getting ready for Denver and Fort Worth – good luck at these national shows. The OCCA kids have had a tough fall – a show almost every weekend since the Tulsa State Fair. I saw most of them at Perry, and they looked very tired, but the parents looked worse. However, they are all still going strong; that is the way of the OCCA. The shows have been well attended, and the quality of cattle has been great! I want to tell the people in charge of points that the kids appreciate your efforts getting the points up so fast. It helps keep the people informed and eager to continue showing. Remember to go to our website and check your points often; Melissa does a great job with this. As always we want to thank our Gold Sponsors: CM Trailers, Cinch, Cruel Girl and Purina. Without you we could not do this! Again, Thanks. Good Luck at your spring shows and be safe, see you at OYE!

Tim B Stidham, OCCA President

Tribute

Junior Nebraska Cattlemen member, Tyler Bennett (age 18), of Beemer, Neb., was involved in a fatal car-semi accident early in the evening on Friday, December 9, two miles north of Farimont, Neb., on Hwy. 81. He was a freshman at Hutchison Community College in Hutchison, Kan., enrolled in the agriculture college and a member of the collegiate livestock judging team, ranked in the Top 15 Freshman in the U.S. His future was bright and promising in the livestock industry. Tyler was an energetic, smart, kind-hearted young man who had a great laugh and a huge smile when he was around his cattle friends and family. It is hard to know what to say at this sad time, because the loss is so great, and because Tyler will be missed in so many ways. To his family, we know that no words can truly comfort you now. Perhaps they can, in some small way, express the depth of care and concern that is felt for you. May time ease the pain of your aching hearts as you heal with memories of all the love and joy Tyler brought into so many of our lives. In friendship, The Junior Nebraska Cattlemen members and advisors

a good read

Hank THe Cowdog

By John R. Erickson

abouT THe book… Don’t let the cartoon illustrations fool you – “Hank the Cowdog” books are for people of all ages who can appreciate the, ahem, wisdom and, uh, penetrating insight of a cowdog who protects his ranch from all sorts of “threats” and solves cryptic mysteries with his sidekick Drover. Author John R. Erickson has penned 58 books in the series to date, following Hank’s misadventures in titles like “Murder in the Middle Pasture” and “The Case of the Booby Trapped Pickup.” According to www.hankthecowdog.com, “Erickson is a former cowboy and ranch manager with a gifted storyteller’s knack for spinning a yarn. Through the eyes of Hank the Cowdog, the smelly, smart-aleck Head of Ranch Security, Erickson gives readers a glimpse of daily life on a ranch in the West Texas Panhandle. This series of books and tapes is in school libraries across the country, has sold more than 7.5 million copies, is a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, and is the winner of the 1993 Audie for Outstanding Children’s Series from the Audio Publisher’s Association. Publishers Weekly calls Hank a “grassroots publishing phenomena,” and USA Today says this is “the best family entertainment in years.” Loyal readers can now follow Hank through his website, where you can play games such as “Whack a Coyote,” and there is a Facebook page for the Official Hank the Cowdog Fan Club. The biggest news, however, is the November announcement of the first “Hank the Cowdog” movie. The feature animation project is currently in pre-production. wHaT we THougHT This is one of the series my kids and I have loved reading together – laugh-out-loud funny and so true to a ranch dog’s life, from his frequent spats with Pete the Barncat to his perpetual vigilance of the mailman, you’ll find a highly enjoyable, light-hearted, easy-to-read escape from your own everyday farm and ranch life. SeleCTed biTS of wiSdom from Hank THe Cowdog... “Food is only food, but here’s a piece of inside information: Dogs who are fed Co-op dog food find it very hard to keep a professional attitude about chickens. I’ll -slurp- say no more.” - Hank (Book #58) “A yard without a dog is like a house without a home.” - Hank “Never argue with a woman’s broom.” - Hank, running from Sally May abouT THe auTHor “Erickson graduated from the University of Texas in 1966 and studied for two years at Harvard Divinity School. He began to publish short stories in 1967 while working full-time as a cowboy, farmhand, and ranch manager in Texas and Oklahoma. On a side note, for a number of years, chapters from “Hank the Cowdog” books appeared monthly in the pages of The Cattleman magazine. When the editor decided Hank’s run was done, all of the complaints came from ranchers who had enjoyed reading Hank’s misadventures every month – not their children.

worth watching “I Am Angus,” which can be found on RFD-TV, YouTube and the American Angus Association website, is worth your time for what it is not – a full-on promotion of, by and for the breed. Even those of us who have a different breed running through our veins should enjoy these short, documentary-style videos that do an extraordinary job of giving viewers an intimate peek into the lives of men and women on America’s ranches and why they are so committed to what they do. With high production values, swelling music and gorgeous scenery, “I Am Angus” tells the stories of ranchers, feedlot managers, cowboys, wives and much more, all of which have a connection to Angus in some way, but Angus is not the central theme of their stories. Instead, these folks talk to the camera like an old friend over a cup of coffee, discussing why they feed

i am anguS

their cattle with horse and sled instead of a tractor, or why they started a blog to interact with consumers about the real story on beef. They talk about how their families have been on their land for several generations and the pride they take in good stewardship of the land and animals. Others topics in the series include the development of the National Western, the historical significance of cattle ranching, Temple Grandin’s thoughts on her role in the industry as an animal welfare expert and so much more. The producers even dug up some footage from a 1949 Angus film that Paul Harvey narrated. While those of us in the rural world can enjoy and appreciate “I Am Angus,” the real value of these shows is giving every consumer that stumbles upon it a beautiful and accurate depiction of real American agriculture, as told by the people who live it everyday.

bouncing checks & bad guys

By Sharla Ishmael

What should you do when someone gives you a bad check?

You’ve sold a bull to a new customer in a consignment sale and his check bounces. Or perhaps you’ve sold a trailerload of calves to a particular buyer before and had no problems so you agreed to wait for payment until the calves are delivered. However, he has some excuse as to why he doesn’t have your check that day. And the excuses continue every time you call him up – “The mail truck burned up.” or “My wife is in the hospital.” What do you do? Unfortunately, these days if you’re a seller, eventually you are going to run into to a “buyer” who tries to take the animals without giving honest payment in return. With a weak economy and strong cattle prices, it’s a good bet that is happening now more than ever. “I hate to say it, but my best advice is not to be so trusting,” says Larry Gray, executive director of law enforcement and theft prevention services at Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. TSCRA has 29 Special Rangers stationed throughout Texas and Oklahoma who handle every kind of livestock theft case imaginable. “Business just isn’t like it used to be,” he adds. “Ranchers take pride in doing business

234 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

on a handshake, but there are definitely individuals who will take advantage of you.” If you do get a bad check, Gray says you have to send the person a certified letter and give them 10 days to respond. If they don’t pay in that time, then you go to your county district attorney and file on them. However, if you agreed to deliver the cattle without getting your check first, you may have a much more difficult time recovering your money – or cattle. “If they flat out won’t pay up, that can be considered theft,” Gray explains. “However, it’s up to the prosecutor. Some consider it a civil matter of extending credit if you let them take the cattle without payment. If they send you a check for a portion of what they owe and you accept it, then for sure it is a civil matter because you have extended credit.” Either way, ranchers tend to be at the mercy of the DA’s office. Gray says that in rural areas, where the DA’s constituents are farmer and ranchers, they tend to take these cases more seriously. However, if your DA’s office is located in a larger, urban area, your chances are slimmer of getting help. You may file on someone and never hear another word. Heath Hyde is a Charolais breeder who also has a private law practice in Dallas, where he was formerly an assistant DA for 10 years. Hyde says many county DAs offices are overloaded.

But he still doesn’t understand why more of them don’t take livestock cases more seriously, considering the amount of money that can be involved – particularly in the registered business. “In the registered business, you may have sold one cow for $6,000,” he says. “You are protected somewhat by the fact that the buyer won’t get registration papers, which decreases the value of the property. But even then, they can take her to the sale barn and get some money because they didn’t put any in to start with. “Threat of criminal action is usually the only way to get your money or your cattle back,” Hyde says. “Another thing is once you start sending checks across state lines it can be considered wire fraud, which is a felony.” For example, Dennis Adams, owner of Outfront Cattle Services, a sale management company, tried to help a client get redress from a buyer that hadn’t paid for cattle bought in a production sale. The buyer wouldn’t return his phone calls, but Adams got a tip from another unhappy seller that included the phone number of the buyer’s mother. So he called her. She wasn’t real happy to hear that charges could – and would – be filed on her son. But it took a call from Adams’ lawyer impressing upon her that jail time was a possibility to convince her to act on his behalf. This time, the


cattle were returned. “Most of the time, you don’t have a lot of problems,” Adams explains. “But if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. For example, if someone who is new to the business shows up and they get overly insulted by asking them for credit references, you might need to watch out.” While checking credit references with a buyer’s bank is common to big operators, such as order-buying firms, it still doesn’t guarantee a safe transaction. Take the case of Monte Sharp. In 2005, Sharp ordered 1,300 head from Capital Land and Livestock, a prominent order-buying firm in Texas. Capital’s owner, Jim Schwertner, checked Sharp’s personal and credit references and sent him the $700,000 worth of cattle. Alerted by another cattle trader, Schwertner soon discovered the calves had already been shipped to a feedlot and Sharp had received 70 percent of their value (even though he had never paid a dime for them), with the rest to be sent to him after the cattle were slaughtered. As it turned out, Capital wasn’t the only livestock dealer this Oklahoma criminal had misled. He owed other cattlemen millions of dollars and had also given them disingenuous pledges to pay them back, knowing he couldn’t as well as bad checks. Capital was – four years later – able to recover its money, having gained secured creditor status. But others weren’t so lucky. One Oklahoma cattleman Sharp owed money to had to sell three family farms and was nearly bankrupted by his dealing with Sharp. It was a complicated case and the reason it ever saw the light of day was due to the diligence of a county assistant DA named Michael Jarrett. Jarrett retrieved the case from an old file drawer, where it had been idling for three years when he found it. Jarrett took it upon himself to learn as much as he could about the cattle business and follow the case through bankruptcy proceedings and other delays. In December 2009, Monte Sharp was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Lengthy delays seem to be the norm even when the justice system is working for you.

Adams points to another case where one of his customers pursued the matter for three years, eventually getting a warrant for the man’s arrest who had failed to pay for a show heifer. He paid up to get out of jail. By the way, if you’ve sold cattle in a sale, it’s still up to you, not the sale manager, to file charges. What if you know where the cattle are and you just want to get them back? Don’t go by yourself, contact local authorities. “You have to get a court order from a judge to go and retrieve them,” explains Gray. And it might be a smart idea to have a law enforcement officer of some stripe to go with you in case things get ugly. If the cattle have been sold to someone else already, that person is doubly jinxed – they are out the cattle (assuming you can locate them) and now they have to worry about getting their money back from the unauthorized seller. Many times, Dennis Adams if the animal has been sold to a 4-H or FFA kid, the seller will allow them to keep it, show it and pay them once the animal has been sold if need be. They may not get full price for it; however, market animals do have an expiration date. Adams says you also can’t expect to show up at someone’s sale who owes you money, buy an animal in the sale and not pay for it as a way to recoup your losses. That’s only going to get you in hot water even if it makes sense from a layman’s perspec-

tive. There are also some tax issues to consider if you try to get too creative in seeking some remedy. Someone once suggested that a jilted seller turn the bad debt into a gift to the buyer on his income taxes. Better not. “If a cattle seller did not get paid for his cattle, the seller would not want to claim that the purchaser received a gift,” explains Larry May, a CPA from Sweetwater, TX. “Gifts are not taxable income to the donee, the recipient of the gift. In addition, the donor, the giver of the gift, might be liable for the filing of a gift tax return if the amount of the gift were in excess of $13,000 to any one person. “The donor could be liable for payment of gift taxes if the donor had used up his gift tax exclusion,” he adds. “If the seller were to claim that a gift had been made, he could lose his legal claim for civil or criminal action against the nonpaying purchaser. “The cattle seller could take a bad debt deduction if his cattle operation is on the accrual basis,” May says. “If he is on the cash basis, his deduction would be limited to his basis in the cattle sold. There is a Form 1099C, cancellation of indebtedness, that can be used to report cancellation of debt, which might be taxable to debtor, but most cattle operators would not meet the criteria of those who may file Form 1099C.” So, the bottom line is unless you really know who you are dealing with it’s the seller rather than the buyer who should beware!

y-Product Feeds and Shelled Corn: Never Say Never

Professor To Producer

The more experienced I get (another phrase for getting older), the more true famous quotes become such as “Never Say Never.” This particular quote is especially true when it comes to replacing shelled corn in diets with by-products. In recent years, many nutritionists (including me) have touted the benefits of substituting by- or co-products for shelled corn in ruminant diets. The collective we (nutritionists in general) have inferred that these by- or co-products are generally less expensive than shelled corn. This is not always true, as is the current situation. Today, November 28, 2011, as I write this article, shelled corn is priced at $5.82:bushel or 11.80¢:lb of dry matter (DM). Soybean hulls are $240:ton or 13.33¢:lb of DM. This is down from $270:ton three weeks ago. Dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) is $215:ton or 11.94¢:lb of DM. This is down from $267:ton 30 days ago. Modified wet DGS is selling for $75 to $95:ton or 6.25¢ to 7.92¢:lb of DM. In short, shelled corn is less expensive as an energy source than soyhulls for beef cows. Shelled corn is also less expensive as an energy source than DDGS for feedlot cattle assuming DDGS is fed above 20% of the diet DM. If DDGS is fed primarily for its protein value (DDGS makes up less than 20% of diet DM), then as a replacement for shelled corn and soybean meal DDGS is the most economical buy. The really bright spot of this information is that modified wet DGS (60% DM) is as usual, a more economical replacement for shelled corn as energy and as a protein feedstuff than soybean meal. As we are finding out, the co-product and by-product feeds are not immediately responsive to increases or decreases in the price of shelled corn. However, producers must pay close attention to changes in the comparative prices of shelled corn and the co- or by-products. The price changes in this volatile shelled corn market must be continually monitored to know when the by-products are an economical purchase. This is particularly true because forage is in short supply. Corn silage that is generally considered the most economical forage for beef cows looks more attractive as a feedstuff in late November at 3.03¢:lb ($5.82:bu for shelled corn at 250 bu:acre or 24 tons corn silage:acre) compared to corn silage back in early September (3.65¢:lb) when corn was $7:00:bu.

236 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

Soyhulls are usually a more economical energy feedstuff for cows on grass or legume hay than shelled corn, but this co-product now has so many alternative uses in feeds that soyhulls are not always more economical than shelled corn. However, as a highly digestible fiber source, soyhulls have several intrinsic factors that make them a more desirable feedstuff for cows than shelled corn. Distillers grains still should be considered a by-product feedstuff and not a co-product such as soyhulls. The nutrient composition of soyhulls is very consistent from plant to plant and from week to week, therefore, soyhulls are a true co-product. Distillers grains are still a by-product feedstuff because their nutrient composition (crude protein, crude fat, phosphorous and sulfur, especially) varies so much from plant to plant and from month to month. One last thought for this issue’s column. I received a telephone call last week from one of the country’s premier Angus seedstock producers. This proactive, progressive cattleman has been using a mixture of DDGS meal and soyhull pellets to supplement the operation’s brood cows. This has been – and continues to be – a very economical supplement. However, using DDGS in supplements can present problems. Often times DDGS is still hot when delivered from the ethanol plant. As a meal, DDGS can bridge over in gravity-bottom grain bins and the consistency of flow is not always good. Bridging is worse with hot DDGS than cool DDGS. This producer’s question was could he replace DDGS with pelleted corn gluten feed (CGF)? A mixture of pelleted CGF and soyhull pellets is a great feedstuff to supplement beef cows on either hay or corn silage. This producer is on top of his game in seeking a substitute for DDGS with CGF. Both can work well: CGF at 24% crude protein has about 83% the value of DDGS at 29% crude protein and it takes about 20% more CGF than DDGS in a CGF:soyhull mixture than in a DDGS:soyhull mixture. A pelleted CGF:soyhull mixture will have a more desirable flow and a more uniform mix with less separation than a DDGS:soyhull mixture. In the world of cattle feeding, never say never. We never know which feedstuff is the best buy. The great thing about feeding cattle is that we have so many options available that pig and chicken producers do not have.

A Pen Of Their Own

Three different high school agriculture programs demonstrate how schools can provide opportunities for kids without a barn or pen of their own to have a livestock project and experience the invaluable rewards and lessons that come from raising a show animal.

Fort Worth ISD FFA Barn

Of course, the flip side is that “Cowtown” is also the 16th largest city in the nation with 80,000 students making up a diverse, urban district with 14 different high schools. In 2002, the first FFA chapter was initiated at Arlington Heights High School, and plans began for a Fort Worth ISD FFA Barn. Key officials with the Fort Worth Stock Show and the Stock Show Syndicate (a generous group of volunteers and local business people that have raised more than $26.5 million for youth exhibitors selling animals in the show’s Sale of Champions) raised the money to build a 5,000-square-foot barn on the west side of town. In 2011, the barn was expanded by another 2,400 square feet to accommodate more space for large animals. “Today we have 16 cattle pens, 20 lamb and goat pens, an open area in the middle that serves as a show arena, wash rack and a feed/ tack area,” explains Cody Davenport, one of two agriculture instructors at Arlington Heights. “There is talk of expanding it even more. “In the barn right now, we have about 20 students who have nine lambs and goats and 13 head of cattle,” he says. “We also have about 35 students who raise rabbits at their homes. We have one student who has a place of his own to keep goats. Altogether, we have 68 paid FFA members, and we teach agriculture classes to roughly 400 students. When I started in 2005, we only had about 35 students.” The total enrollment at AHHS is approximately 1,700; so almost one-quarter of the student body in this big city high school is being reached with some type of agricultural instruction, be it horticulture, animal science, soil and plant research, etc. In fact, the school’s agriculture program is touted as “Gold Seal Program of Choice,” meant to provide students a specialized learning experience to choose in-depth courses based on their interests rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Because of the support from city leaders,

238 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

this FFA chapter not only enjoys its own barn, it also has two pickups, a 40-foot aluminum gooseneck trailer, a 16-foot bumper-pull trailer and a 21-foot stock trailer. The barn is utilized year-round, even though most of the market animals are sold in February at the terminal Tarrant County Livestock Show. FFA members with heifer projects keep the barn occupied even in the “off ” season.

Perry High School Ag Farm

Of course, most high school ag programs aren’t going to enjoy as much financial support from the community, but that doesn’t mean a school ag farm is beyond their reach. Move north to Perry, Okla. – about an hour’s drive north of Oklahoma City. “We have had a school farm for a long time, and we built a new pig barn about eight years ago,” explains Zach Gadberry, the ag teacher at Perry High School. “We have six cattle runs, four goat pens and 10 pig pens. Right now, there are six students who keep livestock projects at the school farm and all but one of them live inside the city limits.” For perspective, Perry has a population of almost 5,000 with 300 kids enrolled in high school. There are 60 FFA members among them. One advantage for the ag teacher of having a school farm is more interaction with those students (particularly when they are inexperienced with livestock) and not having to drive all over the county to oversee their projects. But there are challenges. “The hardest thing is keeping up with it and running it the way it needs to be with a high traffic of students,” Gadberry says. “To keep it clean and mowed is a chal-

lenge. With at least four students and 10 pigs out there, something is breaking all the time.”

Corona Ag Farm

Tony Johnson, ag teacher in tiny Corona, NM (a village of approximately 200 in the high, open-range country of central New Mexico), agrees about the efficiency of his school’s ag farm. “I’ve got some kids that live 60 miles west of here, and some that live more than 70 miles east. You could spend two days driving just to get around to everybody. “We have a set of pens on land that’s owned by the 4-H Club and the Roping Club; it’s not the school,” Johnson says. “In Corona, the ag teacher takes care of the 4-H livestock kids, too. We mostly keep pigs, sheep and goats there, and we average two or three of the city kids from Corona every year,” he adds. “It’s usually for kids who live in town or next to town. “My kids keep their projects there, too. We spend about two hours before school feeding and two hours after school. I get to see these kids and their animals all the time, so it’s a great advantage,” he says. “The only disadvantage, maybe, is that I expect them to take care of their animals like my own. Sometimes a kid will only want to spend 15 minutes feeding, and that doesn’t cut it in my book.” Davenports admits one of the challenges of a school ag barn or farm is just trying to keep everyone on the same page. Just like a cook has a particular way they want things to be done in their kitchen, folks have different notions


between the pages

about the way a barn should be run, as well. One way school ag programs with their own facilities handle that is to have formal, agreed upon rules.

Barn rules

For example, the Arlington Heights FFA chapter actually has a contract of expectations and requirements that a member must sign in order to keep an animal at the school barn. “Our rules cover basic animal treatment,” explains Davenport. “We suggest they feed twice a day, they have to keep their area clean and wash their animals regularly. There are certain days of the week that we’ll meet after school or in the evening to go over things.” Davenport oversees the steer and heifer projects in the barn, and his teaching partner, Linsey Fowler, oversees the sheep and goats.

They bring in outside experts for showmanship clinics and have a chapter-wide show, where exhibitors can earn prizes like boots and belt buckles that are donated. Security is one issue that all three schools have had no problems with, fortunately. Gadberry says the Perry school farm is located right on the edge of town in a highly visible area, and they have never had any issues. Davenport says the Fort Worth barn is protected with both security cameras and an automatic gate system that requires a key card to get in. “Although I’ve heard about it happening with other programs, we’ve never had any security problems,” he says. “The cameras and the gate not only serve as protection, they also help with accountability. If we have a student that skips feedings, we can look at the log of key cards and know that he hasn’t been there, or we can review the cameras and see if he’s been there or not. “Also, the cameras just help to keep track of what’s going on with the animals,” Davenport adds. “There is another school ag barn in Le-

! s r o s i v d A , Hey

ander that has cameras, too. A while back, they had a steer die and didn’t know what happened. So, they went back through the camera footage and saw that he had gotten his head stuck in one of the pens and choked.” At the larger school barns in urban areas, people will tell you the barn becomes a hangout location for the students and gives the group of young people in the ag program an identity of sorts among their peers. While that type of situation certainly requires adult supervision, it’s a very good thing for those kids and certainly better than hanging out at the mall or somewhere they could get into real trouble. From large, fancy barns to nondescript (but full) pens, good things are happening with school ag facilities across the country. Young people who wouldn’t have had the chance otherwise are learning what responsibility means in the most unique way possible – having the care and well-being of another living creature dependent on them, watching that animal grow and develop and getting to showcase their hard work at the end, in the show ring. That’s priceless.

T

he Power of Sexed Semen

Professor To Producer

When breeders decide that calves of one sex may be more valuable than the other in relation to their breeding program, they can turn to the technology of sex-sorted semen. This technology became commercially available to the cattle breeding industry in 2003. Since then, this technology has allowed breeders to increase the odds of males or females sired from a number of bulls whose semen has been collected, sorted and subsequently frozen. Dr. David Faber, President of Trans Ova Genetics, indicated that Trans Ova has been providing sexed semen options to their embryo transfer (ET) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) clients since 2005. They also developed a technique in which previously frozen semen can be sexed after it has been thawed. This technique, which is also called reverse sort, coupled with IVF, has opened the door for breeders to use sexed semen on virtually any bull with high-quality frozen semen. Today, sexed semen is produced in predominately 2-3 million sperm straws or 5 million sperm straws, which are packaged in ¼ cc straws. They are used for artificial insemination (AI), embryo transfer (ET) and in vitro fertilization (IVF). We will cover the latter two reproductive technology uses in this article. Embryo Transfer: Sexed Semen Use in ET With the appropriate application and understanding, the use of sexed semen in conventional embryo transfer (ET) can be a valuable tool for the beef or dairy producer, as breeders can significantly increase the chances of gender-selected offspring, thus adding predictability and value to their herds. Cole Wagner, the Sexed Semen Lab Manager at Trans Ova Genetics suggests when breeding a donor with sexed semen, breeders use 10 to 15 million total sperm or two to three 5 million sperm straws. He also suggests that those donors be bred later than conventional embryo transfer breeding schedules, with one unit at 10-12 hours post estrus, 1 unit at 20 hours post estrus and 1 unit at 30 hours post estrus. Donor cows selected for sexed semen use should be younger, fertile donors. If a breeder desires to use sexed semen on older or problem donors, he suggests that they do so in an IVF program. Although it is possible to see a slight reduction in the number of total fertilized embryos per flush when using sexed semen, the sex ratio of the resulting embryos will be approximately 90% accurate for the gender chosen. With embryo transfer, breeders have the ability to obtain multiple calves of the sex they desire from several different sires in a single year. Combining the technologies of sex-sorted semen together with advanced reproductive technologies can help today’s breeders multiply the success of their elite genetics.

240 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

IVF: The Best Place for Expensive or Sexed Semen While sexed semen use in embryo transfer practice suggests the use of two to three units of sexed semen per superovulated donor, some breeders have opted to take the risk and use one only straw of sexed, or even rare or expensive semen, to inseminate a donor at 12 hours post standing heat (estrus). The down side to taking this risk is the increased chance that some oocytes (unfertile eggs) may be ovulated early or late, and will result in unfertilized embryos. And, in some cases, no embryos are produced or recovered from a donor cow. A breeder can reduce his risk significantly by utilizing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technology, which provides an enhanced opportunity for success by maximizing the ability to create embryos from one or two units of sexed, rare, or expensive semen. Remarkably, one unit of semen can be used to fertilize the oocytes from five (or more) donor cow’s aspirations in IVF. If a large number of oocytes are aspirated from one donor cow, the oocytes can be divided into two groups so that semen from two different bulls can be used. Sorting Semen Prior to Freeze or Sorting Previously Frozen Semen Sexed semen is prepared and marketed commercially by major bull studs or breeders. This semen is collected, sorted for gender and then frozen. But it is also possible to use frozen semen that is sexed after thaw (reverse sort technology), creating an additional opportunity to produce sexed embryos from a conventional straw of frozen semen on virtually all bulls with high-quality frozen semen. This technique, when coupled with the use of IVF technology, creates an incredibly powerful tool for producers by making gender-selected offspring a reality from any virtually any bull. What’s the best option for me? How do breeders determine if the use of sexed semen is a wise choice for their program? Most importantly, breeders must evaluate if there is a significant difference in the value of the male and female offspring from a particular donor cow. If there is not a significant value increase for one sex over another, un-sexed or non-sorted semen will provide the best results at the lowest cost. But if there is a difference in the sales price per gender, sexed semen use in AI, ET or IVF can result in significant value creation for the breeders who are wise enough to utilize the technology in their programs. For breeders looking to speed up genetic advancement within their herd in order to meet demand – and multiply the success of their best genetics – the combination of IVF and sexed semen is a beneficial and logical choice.


Club Calf Event

to be Held at Historic Brown Palace Hotel

As hotels go, none are more grand or legendary in Denver than the Brown Palace Hotel, a luxury property that opened 120 years ago in downtown and has welcomed guests – including presidents, celebrities and even some four-legged visitors – every day since. Every president (except for Calvin Coolidge) has stayed at the Brown Palace since 1905 when Teddy Roosevelt visited. On Friday, January 13th, the grand hotel will host VIPs of the club calf variety as the site of the 2012 “La Prix” Scholarship Contest and presentation of the $10,000 award. Also, the 6th Annual Embryos on Snow sale will be held there, and while many premier Angus auctions have been at the Brown Palace, it is believed this will be the first club calf sale and event for the “Grande Dame.” Grand Champion steers from the National Western do traipse through the onyx-floored lobby once a year during Afternoon Tea – a highly celebrated Brown Palace tradition for the past 100 years featuring scones, tea pastries, tea sandwiches and Devonshire cream shipped directly from England. Visitors and guests line up to take photos with the steer. In fact, the unique, triangular plot at the corners of Broadway, Tremont and 17th street once served as a cow pasture before Henry Cordes Brown, a carpenter-turned-real-estate entrepreneur from Ohio, came to Denver in 1860 after a number of adventures in California, Peru, Nebraska and St. Louis, Missouri and spent of $1.6 million to build his “Palace Hotel.” When the hotel opened in 1892, there were 400 guest rooms (compared to 241 today) that rented for between $3 and $5 a night (compared to $140-$1,400 today). So much history has occurred during its century of existence that the hotel offers guided historical tours through the Colorado red granite and Arizona limestone building. According to Brown Palace publicity, there have been several interesting visits by livestock over the years. “In 1945, Dan Thornton, who later became governor of Colorado, arranged to have two Hereford bulls shown and sold here for $50,000. In January 1958, Monte Montana clattered into the lobby on his horse “Rex”

and continued up the grand staircase to drop in on a meeting of the Rodeo Cowboys Association. In 1988, Gary Henry and ‘Bubba,’ a Texas Longhorn steer, arrived at the front desk to signal the beginning of the National Western Stock Show.” Hopefully none of the animals got near the antiques, some of which date back to 1670. “We are tremendously excited to be able to hold this premier auction in this location. This is a dream come true for me, and I think it will be a great experience for many people to be able come downtown and visit the Brown Palace. We are looking forward to making ‘The Brown’ the permanent home for the sale in years to come,” says Christy Collins, who is managing the exciting event. The Brown Palace is located on the southeast side of downtown at 321 17th Street, Denver, CO 80202, (303) 297-3111. Valet parking will be available for Embryos on Snow attendants. Other parking will be free in lots adjacent to the hotel. The doors to the event as well as the buffet line will open at 6:30. Sale time is 8:00 p.m. The contest winner will be named following the recognition of the 2012 finalists and runner-up. Also, for sale attendees, an optional buffet meal will be made available by the Brown Palace for those wishing to dine in the hotel prior to auction time. The meal will be served in support of the continuation of the LaPrix scholarship program in 2013. Attendees may pre-purchase or reserve dinner tickets, beginning December 15th at www.ccollinsinc.com.

C

ommonly Asked 401(k) Plan Questions

Because your retirement planning is so important to your future well-being, you should ask questions about the retirement plans available to you and how they work, as well as how to best use your retirement dollars. Below are answers to several commonly asked questions about 401(k) plans.

Business Minded

Q. How do my 401(k) contributions lower my income taxes? A. Your 401(k) contributions can be made on a pre-tax basis. This means that they aren’t reported to the Internal Revenue Service as current income on your W-2 form. For example, if you earn $50,000 a year and decide to contribute 10 percent of your salary ($5,000) to your 401(k) account on a pre-tax basis, only $45,000 will be reported as current income for income tax purposes. Why does the government give you this excellent tax break? Because it wants to encourage individuals to save as much as possible with their own dollars today so that they are better prepared for their retirement in the future. Q. What is a Roth 401(k)? A Roth 401(k) is not a type of plan, but rather a type of plan contribution. If a 401(k) plan offers this feature, employees can designate some or all of their elective contributions as designated Roth contributions, rather than traditional, pre-tax elective contributions. Roth contributions, however, are taxed in the year they are contributed to the plan (i.e., they are made on an after-tax basis). Upon distribution, Roth 401(k) contributions are received tax free. Earnings on Roth 401(k) contributions will not be taxed upon distribution if the Roth account has been open for at least 5 tax years and distribution occurs after 59½ , death or disability. Traditional 401(k) contributions and Roth 401(k) contributions are subject to a combined limit of $17,000 for 2012 ($22,500 if age 50 or older). Q. Am I able to contribute to both a 401(k) and an IRA? A. Yes. Many individuals contribute to their 401(k) plan and to

246 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or Roth IRA. It may be best to maximize your traditional 401(k) contributions first, since they can be made with pre-tax dollars. (Your traditional IRA contributions may or may not be tax deductible, depending on your annual salary and other qualifications.) If your employer offers matching contributions and you qualify for a traditional IRA or Roth IRA, it may make sense to contribute enough to the 401(k) plan to obtain the maximum employer match, and then contribute to a traditional IRA or Roth IRA if eligible. If you have not then exhausted the maximum allowable contribution and can afford to do so, consider contributing additional amounts to your 401(k) plan. Q. If I change jobs, may I take my 401(k) money with me? A. Yes. All contributions you have made to your 401(k) account are 100 percent yours. Contributions made by your employer (if any) may be yours depending on a vesting schedule. You will need to check your plan for specific vesting schedules. In addition, if you do change jobs, it may be a good idea to consider either rolling your 401(k) money over into an IRA or another qualified plan (such as a profit-sharing or 401(k) plan) at your new employer. Otherwise, you may incur taxes and early withdrawal penalties. Be sure to check with your tax adviser before taking any distributions from your 401(k) plan.

U.S. HoUSe PaSSeS Bill THwarTing DUST regUlaTion You may have heard about the Environmental Protection Agency’s overreach in attempting to regulate dust “pollution” on American’s farm and ranches? Some common sense has prevailed, though the fight is not over. A bipartisan vote of 268 to 150 in favor of Congresswoman Kristi Noem’s (R-S.D) Farm Dust Regulation Prevention Act of 2011(H.R. 1633) passed the House on December 8. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President Bill Donald called the vote a win for regulatory certainty for cattlemen and women. “Unfortunately, taking EPA’s word that farm dust will not be further regulated provides absolutely no relief to those cattle producers already faced with dust regulations. We saw legislation as the only option to give all ranchers across the country any sort of peace of mind. “Cattlemen and women worried about being fined for moving cattle, tilling a field or even driving down a dirt road should rest assured knowing that will not be allowed to happen on our watch. The bill provides much-needed certainty for cattlemen,” said Donald, who is a rancher from Melville, MT. NCBA was one of 194 various agricultural organizations that lobbied for the bill and will continue to push for its passage in the Senate, where it was introduced by Senators Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and has support from 26 bipartisan senators. review of ProPoSeD CHilD laBor regUlaTionS There has been tremendous outcry in the agricultural world over proposed “updating” of child labor regulations from the Department of Labor. After studying 70 pages of fine-print bureaucrat-speak, this writer sees plenty of justification for concern and even protest. However, the regulations are not as all-encompassing as some of the Internet chat would led you to believe, although some of the new rules are about as clear as mud. For example, 4-H programs or recreational activities are not covered, because these regulations are under the authority of the Fair Labor and Standards Act, which only apply to hired workers. You could presume that would also mean FFA projects are also in the clear, however vocational programs that provide youth valuable working experience through a supervised educational program probably, in most cases, are subject to these new, stricter rules about what is or is not considered a Hazardous Occupation (or HO in government terms). A reasonable person would also conclude that neighbors helping each other at branding time, when no one is paid other than a good dinner, would also be exempt. But there is language in the Department of Labor’s document describing how civil penalties (up to $11,000 per incident) could apply under these guidelines even if the injured party is not the hired worker. For example, if two 16-year-olds were in one of several kinds of prohibited equipment driving down the road and there was an accident – assuming the driver was the employee – if the passenger is injured then the employer could be fined, even though the driver was not the one injured.

Here are some highlights of the proposed changes: • Prohibits hired farm workers under the age of 16 from operating almost all power-driven equipment, including tractors or essentially any equipment not hand-powered such as lawn mowers and milking machines. Again, that applies to hired employees. The DOL says “entrepreneurial” activities, like mowing your neighbors’ lawn is okay. • Using electronic devices, including communication devices, while operating power-driven equipment is also nixed. The proposal would not prohibit a minor from glancing at or listening to a navigational device or GPS that is secured in a commercially designed holder affixed to the vehicle, provided that the destination and route are programmed into the device or GPS either before driving or when the vehicle is parked. • Prevents children under 18 years of age from being employed in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm-product raw materials. • Prohibits places of employment including grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feedlots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock actions. • Prohibits employed workers under 18 from working with horses in feedlots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and auctions or herding livestock from horseback or on a motorized vehicle or on foot in confined spaces such as pens or corrals. • Workers under 16 would be prohibited from working on a farm in a yard, pen, or stall occupied by an intact (not castrated) male equine, porcine, bovine, or bison older than six months, a sow with suckling pigs, or cow with newborn calf (with umbilical cord present); engaging or assisting in animal husbandry practices that inflict pain upon the animal and/ or are likely to result in unpredictable animal behavior such as, but not limited to, branding, breeding, dehorning, vaccinating, castrating, and treating sick or injured animals; handling animals with known dangerous behaviors; poultry catching or cooping in preparation for slaughter or market. • Sharply limits the exemptions to certain rules (particularly related to tractors and other machinery) for workers previously allowed to work with such equipment if they had earned training certificates or in participated in vocational programs. • The Department is also considering whether to create new restrictions that would limit the exposure of young hired farm workers to extreme temperatures and/or arduous conditions and is asking for comment on this subject. Some of what is being considered: youth under the age of 16 would not be permitted to work in agricultural occupations where the temperatures at which they are working exceed or drop below a certain temperature, factoring in such things as humidity, wind velocity, and the degree and duration of the physical exertion required by the work. It might also require that hours in direct sun be limited, if the temperature reaches certain thresholds for prolonged periods of time, and/or that workers be provided with shade, additional water supplies, more frequent breaks, the use of fans in shaded rest areas, or other options for relieving heat stress in certain circumstances.


“There will still be employment opportunities on farms for 1415 year olds if these rules go into effect, they are just going to be somewhat limited,” states Mike Staebell, Des Moines District Director of the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division. “When you see the injuries on the farm and the severity of them and the incidents level, it’s pretty clear - it’s a problem.” There are also new complications concerning the long-standing parental exemption for agricultural kids. In general, parents can employ their children to work on their own farm or ranch at any age if it’s a sole proprietorship. However, if the farm is structured as a legal partnership or corporation, the new rules would apply. The same goes for working on a grandparent or other relative’s property or even working for your parents on property owned by anyone else. There is, however, some murky language regarding changes to allowing youth to work in certain conditions with consent from people acting as parent, but it’s very confusing. According to the proposal, the reasons these regulations are needed is: “It is well established that several characteristics of youth place adolescent workers at increased risk of injury and death. Lack of experience in the workplace and in assessing risks, and developmental factors--physical, cognitive, and psychological--all contribute to the higher rates of occupational injuries and deaths experienced by young workers. Many of the physical and cognitive limitations of young workers cannot be overcome by training or supervision…. These injury and death risks associated with employment are heightened when the youth are working in agriculture because the work itself is more dangerous and the ages

et in G

of permissible employment are lower than in nonagricultural employment.” Unfortunately, there are plenty of statistics and anecdotes that support the evidence of dangers in agriculture and far too many young people have died in tragic accidents. But what the bureaucrats in Washington fail to realize is that people who live the agricultural lifestyle – no matter their age – are just different. We learn common sense and a serious work ethic at a very young age and those are things you can’t expect someone to magically summon at the age of 18 with no prior hands-on experience. We learn by doing. And for every anecdote about a youngster that got run over by a calf or kicked by a dairy cow, we can give them millions more about the ones who didn’t get hurt and the ones who did get stepped on or worked in 105 degree days and have the wisdom and character that comes from those experiences. While the comment period has passed on these regulations, you can still do your part to lobby against them by contacting your senators and representatives. The rules do not require a vote in Congress to go into effect, but there are plenty of ways our leaders can influence the process. But they have to hear from you and they need facts, not emotion. Go to http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml to find contact information. It’s been said that emails and phone calls are preferred today due to security issues on written correspondence. And be sure to support your local and national farm and livestock groups. Sometimes their efforts to derail regulatory or legislative action is more valuable than beneficial legislation they get passed. Your voice matters!

Winter Management of the Beef Cow Herd

By Vern Anderson, Breanne Ilse, Dale Burr, Tim Schroeder and Tyler Ingebretson of the Carrington Research Extension Center; John Dhuyvetter of the North Central Research Extension Center; and Charles Stoltenow, Animal Sciences Department, North Dakota Extension Service

In the northern Great Plains, winter is a fact of life in which severe cold temperatures, frequent dangerous wind chills, and blowing and drifting snow are common occurrences. Beef cattle increase body heat production as a response to severe cold exposure by increasing their metabolic rate (heart rate, respiration and blood flow). Animals eat more during cold weather to meet maintenance requirements. Beef cattle adapt to colder temperatures during gradual changes in the season by growing longer hair, changing their metabolism and hormone secretion (NRC, 1981), and depositing insulating subcutaneous fat if the energy level in the diet allows. A clean, dry hair coat and protection from the wind are very important factors that help cattle tolerate cold temperatures. After adaptation, mature beef cows in good condition during mid-gestation may adapt to a lower critical temperature (LCT) as low as minus 6 F (NRC, 1981) in dry, calm conditions (Figure 1). The LCT is the temperature at which maintenance requirements increase to the point where animal performance is affected negatively. Good winter management practices contribute to healthy and productive cattle, reasonable feed costs and humane care. This publication describes recommended management practices for beef cows during the winter.

250 January/February 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

Physical Environment Northern Plains Conditions Cattle producers can mitigate the winter conditions to some extent with proper planning, facility design and good management practices. Fall and spring in the Northern Plains can be challenging seasons for weaning and calving. In the fall, wet, cold conditions negate the natural insulation value of the hair coat critical to already stressed calves. In the spring, wet and muddy conditions can contaminate udders and lead to health challenges of newborn calves.

Wind Protection

50 to 100 feet upwind from the wintering pens will slow the wind and allow drifting snow to drop among the trees, thereby reducing the amount of snow deposited in the pens. Shelterbelts should not be grazed because the damage from grazing will shorten the life or possibly even kill the trees and significantly reduce the wind and snow protection afforded by the trees and the underbrush and grasses between the tree rows.

Beef cows need protection from the wind, especially during periods of bitterly cold temperatures and severe wind Figure 1. Relationship of feed intake and maintenance chill (Figure 2, Wind chill chart). Prorequirements to temperature.

The combination of constructed wind fences and mature trees provides excellent protection (Anderson and Byrd, 2004). Multiple tree rows of varying height and maFigure 2.

Tree species selection and planting information is available from local Extension or Natural Resource Conservation Service offices, which have programs to assist cattlemen in shelterbelt development. Constructed wind fences can be permanent or portable structures built in the fence line or placed inside the pens for all-around protection. Constructed wind fences that are 20 percent open and 80 percent solid allow some air to pass through and reduce downwind velocity a distance of 10 to 30 times the height of the wind fence. A 10-foot wind fence may reduce wind velocity effectively from 100 to 300 feet downwind, depending on wind speed and direction. Porous wind fences also will spread out snow accumulation. Solid fences will cause swirling and heavy snow accumulation immediately downwind and create smaller protected areas. Wind-fence construction information and shelterbelt planning guidelines are available in the “Beef Housing and Equipment Handbook” (1987). Temporary wind fences can be made of bale piles (carryover hay or straw, or inedible biomass such as bull rushes or flax straw) stacked along the windward fence lines, snow piles pushed up by loaders, or other materials that will slow wind speed, such as large equipment tires. Portable calf shelters should be utilized where cows and new calves do not have access to creep areas inside sheds or protected lots. Shelters should be moved periodically, and bedded and checked often.

Wintering Sites

Larger herds and environmental concerns have resulted in cow herds being wintered to a lesser extent in traditional drylot facilities and more on field feeding sites. Wintering on field feeding sites has some cost advantages because cows deposit manure on cropland or pasture, which saves mechanical lot cleaning and it minimizes facility costs. Several points should be considered when limiting the time cattle are confined to wintering lots and feeding is done in open fields. Protection from the wind remains critically important. Where natural shelter areas (trees, coulees, etc.) are not available, provide portable wind fences for protection. Minimize the impact to riparian areas by not feeding near water courses. Move the feeding site regularly to avoid concentrating manure and runoff concerns. On farmed fields, hay delivery with a bale processor minimizes residue for subsequent field operations. One of the bigger challenges to “out wintering” is the development of an alternative winter watering site. Good field access for feed delivery and ability to bring cattle in to handling facilities for care are additional concerns. Snow depth can create problems in field feeding as well. Creating multiple windrows of snow with a loader can stop drifting snow and provide a clean feeding site.

Bedding

Bedding is important to help mitigate the cold by keeping cattle clean and providing insulation from snow or frozen ground. Replace-

ment heifers fed primarily forage for modest gains may be more susceptible to the physical stress of severe wind chill and can become “cold soaked”or thoroughly chilled, which may reduce thriftiness and gain for several weeks and potentially lead to other health challenges. Bedding is also important for beef cows, especially prior to calving in the winter. For mature cows in good condition and where clean snow is available, bedding may be needed only for calving. Bedding helps keep cows reasonably clean and protects the udder from frostbite and contamination. Bedded areas for newborn calves should be kept clean and new bedding added periodically. Bulls definitely need bedding and wind protection (preferably sheds or more protective structures than simple wind fences) during the winter to reduce the possibility of frostbitten testicles, which can result in reduced fertility.

Pen Maintenance

Ice and snow buildup behind fence-line bunks and around water fountains may have to be removed occasionally during the winter. Removing ice and packed snow buildup will provide better footing for the cattle and avoid slips and falls that can lead to abortions or injury to bones and joints. A backhoe with a spike or a payloader works well for this. Water fountains or tanks should be checked every day during severe cold to ensure the waterer is operational. Frozen manure lumps in high-traffic areas can increase stress on feet

and legs. Scrape and pile frozen manure and snow in areas where runoff is contained. Scraping allows easier movement for cattle, machinery and people checking on cows. If snow removal from the pens is necessary, dump the snow in a site that drains into a containment structure. Runoff from clean snow should be directed away from containments.

Cattle Management and Nutrition

Do not allow cows to become too thin (condition score less than 4 on a 9-point scale) early in the winter because once severe weather starts, maintenance needs increase and significantly more energy density is required in the ration for cattle to gain weight. Most ration-balancing software programs will calculate maintenance needs based on weather conditions, but the condition of the cows is the ultimate test of the ration fed.

Feed intake

Voluntary feed intake of beef cattle increases with decreasing temperatures. Table 1 Prepare cattle for the harsh extremes of describes the proportion of increase in intake winter through nutritional management in the for decreasing temperature ranges. Cattle confall. Make sure cows are receiving an adequate sume 105 percent to 110 percent of predicted intake when temperatures drop below 22 F and quantity and quality of feed to gain weight, put up to 125 percent of predicted intake below 5 F on some fat reserves and be in good body con(NRC, 1981). dition prior to the onset of bitter cold.

A rule of thumb is to increase total digestible nutrients (TDN) 1 pound for every 5 degrees below zero F. Another version is to increase TDN 1 percent for every degree below the lower critical temperature, which in some cases with a dry winter coat may be as low as minus 6 F (NRC, 1981) for gestating beef cows adapted to winter conditions. While many factors influence voluntary forage intake, for planning purpose, cows may consume as little as 2.5 percent of their body weight as hay under mild conditions but may need to be Table 1.

considerably. Less than adequate feed intake and nutrient content of rations for pregnant beef cows could have short- and long-term consequences. Thin cows may be weak and have a difficult time calving, and they may not produce high-quality colostrum, affecting calf health. Calf vigor and rebreeding may be compromised as well. Fetal programming research suggests that cows fed less than adequate protein during gestation produce calves that may not be as healthy or productive throughout their lives.

Supplementation

Various forages are used as the primary feed source for wintering cows. Better-quality forage should be offered during the winter to keep cows in condition. Supplementation often is necessary to meet nutrient requirements of the animals when low-quality forage is fed. Extended periods of severe cold can reduce cow condition, especially if cows are in marginal condition and the ration is not formulated for the severe conditions. Cows can starve to death on a full stomach if forage quality is low and no supplements are offered. Impaction can occur, resulting in loss of rumen function and, potentially, death. If low-quality forage is the primary feed, supplemental protein and energy likely are needed. Take samples of each forage (see “Sampling Feed for Analysis,” NDSU Extension publication AS-1064, Schroeder and Sedivec, 2010) and send the samples to a reputable laboratory for analysis so you know what nutrients are in your feed and you can add specific ingredients to balance the ration. Assistance with ration formulation is available through your county Extension office or from feed companies. Frozen feed requires significantly more energy to warm than wet feed, such as silage or distillers grain. Frozen feed must be thawed and warmed to body temperature. The


effects of ingesting frozen (or cold wet) feed on rumen microbes and digestive function are not well defined.

Interval feeding

Nutrient-dense feeds, such as silage, coproducts, grains and minerals, may be fed once every two days because preliminary research suggests cattle performance and rumen function are not affected negatively. Preliminary studies also suggest that lower-volume supplements (1 to 2 pounds per head per day) may be fed every third day without affecting rumen function. As an example, if cows are fed 2 pounds of a supplemental feed daily, feeding every third day means providing 6 pounds per head. More research is under way to evaluate interval feeding for gestating beef cows. Nutrient requirements in the third trimester of pregnancy increase, so intervals longer than two days may not be advisable without further research. Another labor-saving technique is to preposition forage in separate pens to reduce the frequency of starting tractors or loaders.

Separate adjoining pens will be required for this practice. Feeding chores may be reduced to opening a gate every day or two. Pre-positioning bales once per week may be possible, depending on pen space, feeding arrangements and number of cows. Grazing a multiday supply of bales in a field feeding setting (either set out periodically or allocated by temporary fencing) is gaining popularity to minimize feeding costs. To ensure the opportunity for cows to eat to their fill, meet nutritional requirements and control waste, a sufficient number of bales of known or estimated weight must be provided. Feeding waste can be controlled by the amount of feed provided and by using a mix of bales of higher- and lower-quality forage. Higher-value and higher-quality hay will be consumed with little waste, whereas some of the lower-quality forage of minimal value may be left as residue and used as bedding.

Sorting Cows

Cows should be sorted by nutrient requirements and fed according to need. This practice will optimize feed use and minimize overconditioned animals while permitting thin cows to recover without significant competition. Where limited lots or feeding areas will not accommodate grouping the herd by age and condition, at a minimum, a separate pen should be set aside for high-

need animals lacking condition, thriftiness or soundness where competition is minimized and better feed can be provided. First-calf heifers and older, thin cows may be fed together with well-conditioned mature cows fed lower-energy diets appropriate to their production stage. Heifer calves kept for replacements will not compete well with mature cows and should be fed separately.

Time of Feeding

Feeding cows late in the day during severe cold will increase heat production during the night by the activity of eating and ruminating. Feeding cows at night also may alter the time cows calve, with as many as 85 percent of calves born between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. when cows were fed between 5 and 10 p.m. (Anderson, 1982).

High-Concentrate Diets for Emergencies

If the availability of forage is limited during severe storms, cows can be fed diets that are primarily grains or co-products, but producers should manage carefully and understand the effects on the rumen. Feed must be distributed so all cows have equal access to avoid boss cows consuming more than their share and potentially experiencing acidosis. This practice runs some risk of nutritional problems. Grains should be fed whole to reduce the rate of fermentation and acidosis potential. High-fiber feeds, such as wheat mids, soy hulls, barley malt or beet pulp, are preferred to grains due to low starch content and reduced acidosis potential. Distillers grain contains high levels of fat and sulfur and should not be fed as the sole feed ingredient. Careful planning and an extended adaptation period are recommended if high-concentrate diets are to be fed to beef cows in the winter.

Water

Cattle should have adequate amounts of clean, fresh water available at all times. Most automatic water fountains operating on a pressurized water system require energy to keep them from freezing. Energy-free fountains may be useful if more cows drink consistently and water from deeper wells enters the fountain at a higher temperature. Clean water fountain basins often and check water temperature to ensure thermostats are working and not drifting to higher temperatures. To reduce the energy use of commercial water fountains, consider adding more insulation inside the housing, and cover the concrete slab inside the fountain as well. Rigidboard insulation cut to fit is recommended because it does not absorb water. The water line rising to the fountain from the buried lateral line should be centered inside a 10inch or larger diameter insulated casing that extends 10 feet into the ground and acts as a heat well. Insulating the outside of the casing during construction where it passes through the concrete slab will reduce frost penetration. Steamfitters insulation may be useful for the riser pipe inside the casing, or a small light bulb may provide enough heat to keep pipes from freezing. Consider covering the exposed water surface with an insulated float, but secure it with a chain or cows may toss it out. The “Beef Housing and Equipment Handbook” (1987) states that 16 head of cows can drink per foot of water fountain or tank perimeter when cows are in a pen and have continual access to water throughout the day. Practical experience suggests this is a conservative number if water flow is adequate. Snow may be considered a water source in an emergency if it is soft and fluffy and not crusted or icy. However, some animals may not

adapt to eating snow and suffer from dehydration. Also, thawing and heating melted snow to body temperature reduces cows’ energy resources. Little research or information is available on snow as a water source.

Health Considerations

Extreme winter weather can result in hypothermia and ultimately cause death. Cattle that suffer hypothermia or frostbite are more prone to other disease conditions and certainly do not perform as well as cattle that are warm, dry and out of the wind. Treating sick animals in the cold poses a challenge for personnel and products. When transporting or using any veterinary product, vaccines and medications should be kept in a “warm box” with a temperature from 35 to 45 F(2 to 7 C) when used. Frozen vaccines can become denatured, and frozen antibiotics can precipitate in the bottle. A portable heat source or more permanent chuteside heated and well-lit compartment on top of a work bench or cabinet works well to safely handle syringes and sharp objects such as needles, prepare correct dosages and keep ear tags warm and pliable.

Calving

Sort cows close to calving into a more accessible facility for easier observation and addressing problems. A simple headgate-and-panels setup inside a lighted shed area is useful for solving dystocia. A calf warmer may be useful if cows are calved during severe weather (see photo). Small pens for short-term housing to ensure cows mother and calves nurse are very helpful in the shed with the headgate. If possible, move cows that have calved to a new pen or yard to alleviate any issues with claiming newborn calves. This also will help maintain a healthy environment for newborn

calves. Crowding of baby calves in bedded shelters may increase the spread of scours or respiratory disease. Frequent checks, moving shelters and providing fresh bedding help reduce these challenges. Calving cows in the winter may result in frozen ears or tails, which is more of a cosmetic issue that does not have an effect on performance. Frozen teats can be a challenge until calves are a few days old and capable of consuming more milk. Winter calving is hard work for producers, family members and hired hands. Frequent checks of the close-up cows, especially during winter storms, as well as the care of newborns and the all too frequent problems require continual effort. Stress from little sleep, long days and frustrations of calving can be detrimental to personal health. Train all involved to recognize normal calving and when intervention is needed, as well as other calving management practices. Rotating night checks and chores helps all hands own the calving process and learn more about what needs to be done.

Conclusions

Beef cows are capable of adapting to cold temperatures and maintaining condition if fed appropriately for the environmental conditions and provided protection. The challenge for cow/calf producers is to provide balanced rations with required nutrients for cattle to thrive regardless of the elements. Modifying the environment with wind protection and bedding are good husbandry practices that will reduce maintenance needs. For more information on this and other topics, see www.ag.ndsu.edu.

Favorite Blog Posts from a month of the B.S.

• John Wayne at 6 in the Morning I got up REAL EARLY one morning to head to Fischer Cattle Company in Great Bend, Kansas, a while back. I was driving through downtown Kansas City channel surfing on the radio when I stopped on a country station for a while and all of the sudden, at 6:00 a.m., on comes John Wayne saying the “Pledge of Allegiance.” At first I wondered what in the world was going on. Then, as I listened, the hair on the back of my neck stood up with pride. Immediately following John, a rendition of the National Anthem was played. I don’t know if that is a daily occurrence with this radio station, or was just something special for the day, but it made me wonder just how many of our schools still do this. A couple weeks later while filming, this topic entered my mind again, and this time in the picture pen with me was an 8th grade girl. So, I asked her if they still did this in her school. She said that they did through 6th grade, but quit after that because she remembered her brother being mad when he entered 7th grade and they didn’t do it any more. It seems to me that it would be MORE important from 7th grade on in life.

• iCan Inn On the same trip that I heard John Wayne saying the pledge, I drove past the “old” AMERICAN INN, which is normally lit up in pink lights, but is gettin’ a little old and run-down looking now. The sign, obviously having some technical difficulty, said, “ICAN INN”. I immediately found that humorous. • Wayne FFA Blog … COOL IDEA I was talking to our new, fresh-out-of-college Ag Instructor tonight at the game, and he informed me that the Wayne FFA had their OWN BLOG too ...www.wayneffa.blogspot.com That’s a REALLY COOL idea. I’d like to have heard the definition that our Ag Instructor from the Class of ‘83 would have given for the term “BLOG” ... or Internet, as far as that goes. We had some stuff similar to blogs ... called chalkboards and notebook paper (which MOST of the time got chewed up and formed into SPIT BALLS) My kids better not EVER do anything like that! LOL.

The life of

There have always been people that I looked up to. Those that I respect and admire because of their talents, and whose level of success I strive to achieve. Walt Browarny was one of those individuals. I came to know the Browarny family through showing cattle in Alberta. I remember the days of waiting for the mail to come looking for the Browarny Photographics envelope full of proofs, with a line scratch through them. After the family debated on which photos were truly the best, you would next call Marie, Walt’s lovely wife, and place your order, to then patiently wait again for the prints to arrive in the mail. The livestock photography business has certainly changed. You could open any magazine or semen catalog and see the legendary Browarny signature at the bottom of the latest herd sire’s photograph. Champion bull and female pictures from across North America all carried the Browarny signature. All the big dogs in the cattle business all had Walt Browarny photographs hanging in their farm offices. Walt was amazing at what he did. He was a perfectionist. It was his job to capture the perfect image of that animal. There was rarely a time when you weren’t asked to move a foot a hair forward, straighten out that head, get her ears, walk her back in. However, there was one instance when I was showing my favorite red baldy heifer, “Harmony;” I walked up to the backdrop set her up, and as soon as Walt turned around he said, “Hold it, don’t move a muscle.” I am pretty sure knowing that Walt thought I had presented my heifer perfectly was almost better than winning any showmanship competition. I came to know the Browarny family more personally once I moved down to the states for college. Marie called one day and asked if I would be a part of their sales crew during the American Royal and National Western Stock Show. I quickly jumped at the opportunity to work with such an amazing team. Walt didn’t say too much, but when he did I sure listened. Allan, Walt’s son, had such a passion for livestock marketing and really pushed me to be creative in my own marketing strategies. Selling photos not only helped pay for college, but the people I got to interact with as they viewed their images on the ShowChampions website was invaluable. One year Walt gave me his National Western Stock Show badge; he always got a fancier one than rest of the exhibitors. It was his way of saying thanks, and I’ll never forget that moment.

An Ag Girl

I always thanked the Browarny family for what they did for me after each show. However, after Walt’s passing this past fall, I wish I would’ve taken the time to let Walt know how much I looked up to him. Stock Show will definitely be different this year without Walt barking orders at the backdrop. Time flies by so fast, and often we don’t take the time to tell others what they mean to us. Maybe it is family members, our friends on the show road, mentors or those in the industry that you look up to. There are others on my list of “people I want to be just like when I grow up.” It’s time for me to connect with them, share my admiration, and ask them how I can get to where they are. We are pretty lucky in the livestock business that we have the opportunity to look up to great stockmen, marketers and herdsman. I’ll put them up against any reality TV star, actor or musician that the media sees fit to be a role model. The holiday season is now passed us, but remember we have the opportunity to be thankful everyday. Thank you Browarny family for all that you have taught me.
