LIVESTOCK SUPPLEMENT & CONDITIONER The easy supplement for show-stopping results. Blue ribbons aren’t easy to come by – but fortunately, premium nutrition can be simple. By feeding your animal just a few ounces of ShowBloom a day, you give them essential protein, vitamins and minerals. The all-natural brewer’s yeast formula is palatable and increases digestibility and feed efficiency to create a shiny coat, clear eyes and improved muscling and hoof quality. Those are results that you – and the judges – can appreciate.

Oklahoma Club Calf Association - Dec 2012

Thanksgiving is over, and I hope you all had a great time being at home with your families! Christmas is right around the corner. Looking forward to seeing y’all before then at the AGR Jackpot Show. Oklahoma still has not received any rain, and it’s unseasonably warm and super windy, so it’s still not looking good for the farmers and ranchers. The OCCA kids are going to a show every weekend, and man do they look tired! But we know these kids won’t quit doing what they love! Getting lots of good reviews on the past shows, and new shows are requesting to be sanctioned every day. Lots of people are getting ready for Phoenix and Denver; this is how a lot of show families spend their vacation time living on the road. Before we know it, OYE will be here, and the 2012-2013 show season will be winding down. I look forward to seeing all the new cattle in the barns. I would like to take the time and thank the senior board members for all their hard work. We have been having a lot of meetings lately. With all their dedication and commitment, this association keeps getting better and better - Thank You. Don’t forget to check your points and new shows on our website. Safe travels and Merry Christmas from the OCCA!

Tim B Stidham, OCCA President www.oklahomaclubcalfassociation.com

Note: According to OCCA Rules, winners of the “Overall Top 10 Exhibitors” are not eligible to compete for “District Awards”.

Annuities: On Your Road To Retirement Will you have enough income to fund a retirement of 20 years, 30 years or more? One way to help ensure that you’ll meet your needs may be to invest in an annuity. Building a steady stream of retirement income is a top priority for many Americans, especially those nearing their anticipated retirement date. With life spans extending into the 80s, 90s and even into the 100s, there is even more reason for investors to ensure they’ll have a source of income that lasts a long time. One way to help meet that need may be an annuity. An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company that is designed to help meet retirement and other long-range goals, under which you make a lump-sum payment or series of payments. In return, the insurer agrees to make periodic payments to you beginning right away (an immediate annuity) or at some future date (a deferred annuity). While there are many different types of annuities, there are a number of commonalities: • There are no annual contribution limits to an annuity as there are in IRAs or 401(k)s, unless the annuity is held in a qualified account. The issuing insurance company may however impose contribution limits. • All contributions—and any earnings—grow tax-deferred until withdrawal. Note, however, that annuities do not provide additional tax deferral on qualified contracts. • Annuities offer a wide range of underlying investment options, from very conservative to very aggressive. Whether an annuity is right for you may depend on how much you anticipate receiving from traditional sources of retirement income, such as Social Security, a 401(k) or an employer pension. You have a choice of annuities: • A fixed annuity, which provides a fixed rate of return for a specified time period. • A variable annuity, which provides a variable rate of return based on the underlying investments. • An equity-indexed annuity, which offers a guaranteed rate of return

that may increase depending on the index it is tied to. Fixed Annuities As their name suggests, fixed annuities typically present a guaranteed interest rate that is locked in for an initial period (typically 1 to 15 years) and may be adjusted thereafter, often annually. With a fixed annuity, you have no control over the investments—the issuing insurance company decides how to invest your assets, primarily in government securities and high-grade corporate bonds. There are two basic types of fixed annuities: • The Guaranteed Return Annuity (GRA) offers a guarantee that you can never receive less than 100% of your investment—no penalties or fluctuations in the interest rate market can impact your principal should you surrender. • The Market Value Adjustment annuity (MVA) works much like the GRA, but there is no guarantee of your principal if rates rise and you surrender your contract. MVAs often pay more than a GRA due to the increased short-term risk of rising interest rates. Earnings accumulate tax-deferred and are not taxable until they are withdrawn, when they are taxed as ordinary income. Withdrawal options may include a lump sum or a lifetime stream of income. Variable Annuities1 This type of annuity, in contrast, generates investment returns that fluctuate depending on how the underlying subaccounts are invested. Generally, you may make an investment selection that may include stock, bond, cash subaccounts or some combination of these. Available choices range from conservative—such as money market, guaranteed fixed accounts and government bond funds—to more aggressive—such as small cap, mid cap, large cap, capital appreciation, aggressive growth and emerging market investments. As with many investments, the value—and payout—of a variable annuity will change depending on the performance of the subaccounts you choose. Withdrawals are taxed as ordinary income.


In addition to offering a stream of income that cannot be outlived, many variable annuity products have “living benefits”, optional features available for an added fee that can help protect your principal investment from market declines and/or provide a minimum future income. There are three basic types: • The Guaranteed Minimum Income Benefit (GMIB) guarantees a minimum future income level regardless of how the market performs. This benefit typically requires the owner to meet certain criteria, such as owning the contract for a specified number of years before exercising the benefit, and the owner must annuitize the contract to take advantage of this benefit. • The Guaranteed Minimum Accumulation Benefit (GMAB) ensures that you retain the value of your purchase payments regardless of investment performance. At the end of a waiting period—typically 10 years—if your contract value is worth less than your purchase payments, the insurance company will increase your contract value to equal the guaranteed amount (adjusted by any withdrawals), • The Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB) guarantees a return of your purchase payments through fixed annual withdrawals. The annual withdrawals are guaranteed until your principal is returned, even if the contract value declines to zero. Some benefits also guarantee the owner 5% annual withdrawals for life in addition to guaranteeing the principal. Withdrawals in excess of the benefit withdrawal limit may negatively impact the guarantee. Living benefits are increasingly evolving into new hybrid benefit options, as insurance companies seek ways to differentiate their offerings in the marketplace. This environment of expanding flexibility and functionality is helping to redefine variable – and fixed – annuities for a new generation of retirement investors. Equity-Indexed Annuities (EIAs) EIAs have characteristics of both fixed and variable annuities. They frequently offer a guaranteed minimum interest rate combined with an interest rate linked to the performance of a market index. At a minimum, the guaranteed minimum is 87.5% of the premium paid at a 1% to 3% annual interest rate, but rates can fluctuate based on the issuing insurance company. The index-based return is tied to an index, such as the S&P 500, which is a stock market index based on the common stock prices of the 500 leading American companies in leading industries. The index-linked interest rate may be computed in a variety of ways. Some annuities present a participation rate (for example, 80%) that determines how much of the index’s gain is credited to the annuity. There may also be an interest rate cap on how much an EIA can earn. For example, if an index linked to an annuity gained 8% and the cap rate was 6%, then the gain would be 6%. There are also a variety of indexing methods used to calculate the index-based return. The Pros and Cons of Annuities One reason annuities are attractive is that they can help build more value over time. Money is accumulated in an annuity through contributions and investment earnings. By providing potential growth that is tax-deferred, an annuity’s investment earnings can accumulate and compound untouched by federal, state or local income taxes until you begin making withdrawals, which is usually after retirement. In addition to tax advantages, annuities also offer a choice of investment options. These may include fixed accounts, which may help protect

principal from market risk, and variable investment accounts in stock and bond portfolios, which offer the potential for higher returns. Together, these features may make annuities attractive to those who seek investments that can help supplement future retirement benefits, and to retirees who want greater control over their income and the flexibility to continue deferring taxes on investment earnings. While annuities certainly have some advantages, there are also a number of concerns, including: • Surrender charges: While most annuities allow you to withdraw 10% to 15% of your account value without penalties, the surrender charges for pulling money out of an annuity within the first several years after you buy it and can be prohibitive. Surrender charges typically run for five to ten years after first purchase and can eat up 10% or more of your account value. Most contracts will begin a new surrender period for each subsequent purchase payment. • Taxes: Withdrawals made from an annuity are taxed as ordinary income. Withdrawals made prior to age 59½ may be subject to an additional 10% federal penalty tax. • High annual fees: The expenses for annuities, particularly variable annuities, can be high—often 2% to 4% a year. Fees include: -- Administrative expenses, which can average 0.1% to 0.3% or more. -- Investment management expenses, which range anywhere from 0.25% to more than 2%. -- Mortality expense, which provides a death benefit for your beneficiaries, which can range from 0.5% to 1.5%. • Estate planning considerations: If you die with money remaining in your annuity, your beneficiary will inherit all the taxes that you have deferred. Annuities do not receive a “step up” in tax basis. Balance Costs and Benefits An annuity can be an excellent retirement investment vehicle if you are able to forgo use of the money for several years. Annuities also offer unlimited contributions (subject to insurance company limitations), protection of principal in fixed accounts and/or with living benefit riders, and the potential to earn higher rates of return on your investments in variable accounts. But annuities may also entail higher fees and expenses than some other investment vehicles, in part due to the insurance feature annuities provide. Let your financial advisor work with you to help determine if an annuity is right for you. Footnotes/Disclaimers Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC offers insurance products in conjunction with its licensed insurance agency affiliates. 1 Variable annuities are sold by prospectus only. The prospectus contains the investment objectives, risks, fees, charges and expenses, and other information regarding the variable annuity contract and the underlying investments, which should be considered carefully before investing. Prospectuses for both the variable annuity contract and the underlying investments are available from your Financial Advisor. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest. Variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement. There are risks involved when investing in a variable annuity, including possible loss of principal. Withdrawal and distributions of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if made prior to age 59½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal income tax penalty. Early withdrawals will reduce the death benefit and cash surrender value. All guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Optional benefits, such as living benefits and enhanced death benefits, are available for an additional fee. If you’d like to learn more, please contact Matthew O’Donnell.

Freezing IVF Embryos Q&A

Trans Ova Genetics shares the company’s experiences on freezing IVF embryos.

Can IVF Embryos Be Frozen?

Yes, but with limitations. For example, Trans Ova Genetics has shown that IVF embryos can be frozen with very acceptable pregnancy rates resulting. However, both the method of freezing and the percentage of embryos that can be frozen will differ from embryos produced with conventional embryo transfer. How are IVF embryos frozen?

IVF embryos may be frozen with one of two methods: 10% Glycerol or Vitrification. While our data indicates that both methods are achieving similar pregnancy rates, there are some key differences between them: • 10% Glycerol (three-step-thaw) - IVF embryos frozen with this method may be thawed and transferred by qualified practitioners outside the Trans Ova Genetics system. • Vitrification - While there may be a larger percentage of embryos that qualify to be frozen when utilizing this method, vitrified embryos must be thawed and transferred by Trans Ova Genetics personnel. The reason for this is that specialized training is required to handle embryos frozen in this manner.

Can clients utilize the Fresh Ship program along with the option to freeze their IVF embryos?

One of the keys to achieving acceptable pregnancy rates with frozen IVF embryos is the selection of good quality embryos to be frozen. Most grade one IVF embryos will qualify for freezing, but not all grade two embryos will qualify. Trans Ova Genetics lab staff will very selectively determine which embryos are of good enough quality to freeze. On average, about 50% of all viable (grade one and two) IVF embryos produced will be freezable. Embryos that do not qualify for freezing should be transferred fresh or discarded.

For clients utilizing the Fresh Ship program, the ability to freeze IVF embryos is somewhat more challenging. In the Fresh Ship program, embryos are packaged fresh and shipped overnight to clients for transfer into their own recipients. This packaging and shipment occurs one day prior to transfer (day 6). At the time of packaging, it is difficult to predict which embryos will be freezable, since the embryos have one more day of development remaining. The lab can hold back the embryos that appear to have the best chance to be freezable, but there is no guarantee that they will be for sure. If clients choose this option, they should be prepared to either transfer any non-freezable embryos into recipients at Trans Ova Genetics or have them discarded.

What are the results I can expect with IVF frozen embryos?

Is it possible to market and/or export frozen IVF embryos?

Can all IVF embryos be frozen?

On average, we expect frozen IVF embryos to achieve very similar pregnancy rates to fresh IVF embryos. The specific pregnancy rate will vary depending on the time of year, the type of recipient and recipient management. In Trans Ova Genetics beef recipients, we expect about a 50% pregnancy rate from frozen IVF embryos over the course of a year.

IVF embryos frozen with the 10% Glycerol method can be marketed domestically within the U.S. and thawed and transferred by qualified practitioners. The exporting of IVF embryos is available only to limited destinations at this time. Please contact a client service representative to understand which countries have a protocol in place for the import of frozen IVF embryos.

announcements AndrAs nAmed Hereford Queen

With generations of Hereford involvement, it only seems natural for Whitney Andras to represent the Hereford breed first as the Oklahoma Hereford Queen and now as the National Hereford Queen. Currently a freshman at Connors State College in Warner, Okla., Whitney is pursuing an associate’s degree in science and serving as a member of the freshman livestock judging team. After Connors, Whitney plans to transfer to either Texas Tech or Oklahoma State University, where she hopes to dual major in agricultural communications and agribusiness. At the American Royal Whitney was also presented the Whitehead/Rocking Chair Ranch Scholarship and the Gary Bishop Memorial Scholarship.Whitney competed against three other young

women from across the U.S. for the title. The National Hereford Queen program is managed by the National Hereford Women. Queen candidates are evaluated on their involvement with and knowledge of the Hereford breed, behavior, attitude, appearance and interaction with producers, as well as their résumés and interviews. Judges look for a responsible, well-rounded young lady who is willing to spend an entire year traveling all over the country to represent the Hereford breed to her best ability. First runner-up honors went to MaKayla Rutt, Minden, Neb.; Bridget Beran, Claflin, Kan., was named second runner-up, and the Miss Congeniality award was presented to Cara Cummings, Gilmer, Texas.

Fine-Tuning Your Turkey Gun By Jay Langston Courtesy of the National Wild Turkey Federation

You’ve spent countless hours getting ready for turkey season. You have scouted a great location with plenty of gobblers, and you’ve practiced your calling. What about your turkey gun? There are some very important aspects of accurately shooting a turkey gun that need your attention before the season rolls around. After you’ve found a load that patterns well, one that puts over 100 pellets in a 10-inch circle at 40 yards, it’s time to fine tune. When you’re shooting a tight-patterning shotgun at a small target — like a gobbler’s head and neck — you have to be sure the core of the load is hitting precisely where you aim. Similar to shooting a rifle, changing loads from one brand to the next can change the point of impact down range. Switching choke tubes can change point of impact, too. Here’s a simple checklist for getting the most out of your patterning sessions. • When sighting-in and testing loads, use a steady rest. • Wear your hunting clothes to make sure the gun fits the same way it does in the field. • Try a few shots from a sitting position with the gun propped on your knee to make sure our eye — your rear sight — is lining up the same as it did from the shooting bench. • If your turkey gun has bead sights, remember to press your face tight to the stock for

every shot, keep the beads in perfect alignment, and your shooting eye focused on the front sight, which should slightly blur the target. What if your shotgun doesn’t center the pattern where you’re aiming? That is when adjustable, rifle-type sights come in handy. There are several models available that clamp onto your existing shotgun barrel, or you can have a gunsmith install a set. When you’ve got them in place, it’s a simple matter of fine-tuning to get everything aligned. Another option is a low-powered scope. A zero to 3X magnification works best. Some scopes have standard cross hairs, while others offer various rangefinding reticles, either diamond-shaped or circular, that cover a specified area, which corresponds to different measurements at different ranges. With practice, you can gauge the range to a gobbler by comparing the reticle’s center area to a part of the bird’s body. For example, if the reticle covers the bird’s entire body, the bird is farther away than if the reticle covers only the bird’s beard. Whichever scope you chose, make sure that the eye relief is long enough to keep your face away from the rear of the scope. Although I’ve been lucky, I have seen a few turkey hunters who got too close to their scope and received nasty cuts when the scope came back in recoil. Over the past few seasons, I’ve had success with “dot” scopes. The illuminated reticle is typically a 3-minute, which calculates to slightly larger than a 3-inch circle at 100 yards. Some models offer a 6-minute dot that’s twice the size of the smaller 3-minute dot reticle. Either works well at turkey gun ranges. It’s simple to adjust a scope’s crosshairs or dot to cover the center of your shot pattern. And, it’s easier to keep your gun on target--even in odd shooting positions. Another advantage is that your sights AND your target are in perfect focus at the same time. Once you get accustomed to shooting with a scope, you’ll learn what I’ve learned: Getting lined up on a cagey old gobbler with a scope is every bit as fast as shooting with standard bead sights. So when opening day rolls around, make sure ALL of your equipment, especially your turkey gun, is ready to go hunting. For more information: www.nwtf.org

Professor To Producer

by Dr. Paul Walker, Professor of Animal Science at Illinois State University

Preparing for the 2013 Calving Season

Soon it will be calving season again, especially for those cowcalf producers who utilize a winter calving season. Most of us in the industry refer to the months of January, February and March as the winter calving season. Historically, at least since 1982, the ISU Farm has calved every year with a scheduled calving interval of February 6 to April 8. This pre-planned calving period coincides with a timed synchronized AI on April 29 and 30, and a 60-day natural breeding period with bulls pulled on June 30.

equalize body weight (BW) and body condition score (BCS). Here is the point of this article. Are you as a producer ready for the next calving season? At the ISU Farm, our preparation begins at calf weaning. First, cows are selected for retention. Second, cows are fed to optimize BW and BCS by feeding thinner and fatter cows separately. Third, cows receive their annual booster vaccinations. In early December (about 60 days prior to the beginning of the next calving season, all the cows receive their annual booster vaccinations. Vaccinating at this time helps the cows pass immunity against bacterial and viral respiratory and diarrhea diseases to the Our schedule next calf crop. Cows are checked for pregnancy via rectal palpation and ultraWe vaccinate at this time, as opposed to other times of the prosound in early August, and calves receive their first round of vac- duction cycle when providing cow care (such as at breeding, pregcinations at this time.

Our goal A goal of the ISU Farm is to have all cows entering the calving season in a BCS range of 5 to 7, with every cow scoring a 6.0 as ideal. Historically, the base diet for the ISU Farm cow herd was corn silage based supported with shelled corn and soybean meal. Since 2004, the base corn silage diet has been supported with corn distiller’s grains by-products – primarily WDGS (modified wet distiller’s grains with solubles containing 50%-60% moisture and consisting of either low fat, 6%-8%, or high fat, 10%-12%, solubles. Most recently, the base diet has been changed to a 50:50 corn silage:ground switchgrass diet supplemented with CDS (condensed corn distiller’s solubles containing approximately 60% moisture and low fat (6%-7%). This change in diet has been a function of economics. All cow-calf producers should be moving away from supplementing cow diets with shelled corn and DDGS or DCGF (dried distiller’s grains with solubles or dried corn gluten feed) to utilizing either WDGS or CDS. Shelled corn, DDGS and DCGF are simply too expensive to feed to beef cows. In fact, because CDS exists, WDGS now may be too expensive. Diets containing the liquid CDS are the most economical, but even the price of CDS doubled on November 1, 2012. If producers cannot buy volume truckloads of CDS from an ethanol plant, there are several feed companies that provide CDS-based supplements in volumes that If producers cannot buy fit their beef volume truckloads of CDS cow customers’ needs.

Favorite show memory so far: Winning the Arkansas Oklahoma State Fair Grand Champion Commercial Heifer Least favorite show day task: Breaking down calves at the end of the show Most embarrassing stock show moment: I would have to say the most embarrassing moments in the show ring is when you’re calf will lay down right in the middle of the show. This actually happened to me at my last show!

The Life of

An Ag Girl

My Online Community Today we are plugged in. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs and the list of how we can keep connected goes on and on. However, for those who haven’t embraced social media it might be hard to grasp what the value is of all those notifications and time spent typing on our Smartphones. Social media hasn’t always been a part of my life. I was part of the generation that didn’t have Facebook until half way through my college career. That was when only college students with a college or university email were allowed onto the social network. I didn’t start my Crystal Cattle blog until after college, and my Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts were all created within the past couple of years. For me, the number of people that I have connected with via the Internet that have played an extremely important role in both our farm and my personal life is immeasurable. Business relationships About a year and a half ago my husband and I noticed the Twitter name @JakeKnutson. We began to follow this young farmer and cattlemen from Minnesota, and conversations began regarding our farming operations and cattle. After a few tweets had been exchanged it was brought up that the Knutson family was interested in showing a Hereford heifer. Through our JJB Cattle Co. blog, Facebook page and Twitter account we shared pictures of our Iowa Beef Expo heifer with the Knutson family and other interested buyers. The Knutstons ended up not being the final bidder on our heifer that year, but the relationship continued. It turns out that Jake is from a large family and there were many more Knutsons to follow. We usually exchange messages a couple times

a month whether it is about crop conditions, new machinery, cattle or lambs. It was exciting to be following along on Twitter as Jake’s younger brother Jed won the Aksarben Market Lamb show this year. The boys and us quickly decided that when my husband and I have children one day, the Knuston boys will be our go to people for lambs. This fall the relationship continued to strengthen as I got to meet Jake and Jed’s parents at the National FFA Convention, and three of the boys visited our farm to check out the cowherd. This is an amazing family that we now have both an online and offline connection with, and people that we would have never met if it weren’t for social media. Bringing people together I wouldn’t say that I live in the middle of nowhere by any means, and I grew up in a much smaller town than the one closest to our farm. However, after attending college outside of Wichita, Kan.,

university in Manhattan, Kan., and then living north of Kansas City for almost four years, our farm in Northeast Iowa sometimes can seem a little far from all the action. However, through my social media connections I have realized that there are many other farm gals just like me spread all over the country. Women that love fashion, design and so many of the things that the city offers, but we wouldn’t ever want to give up life on the farm. Sometimes it is hard to find people with these similar interests and passions in our small towns. Yet, because of social media I have developed a community of friends that are there to lend support. It could be as simple as letting me know when a great online sale is going on or giving me helpful tips on editing sale videos. Some of these people I will never meet in real life, while others I will get to see every now and then at a stock show or sale, and we’ll use social media to stay in touch between those events. How to get started Social media could be for you whether you want to promote your livestock, drive business relationships, are looking to strengthen relationships with current friends or expand your network of people that can lend you support. It isn’t necessary to sign up for every social media platform from the get-go. Instead it is important to choose one that you feel comfortable on and will use. There is no sense of signing up if you aren’t going to participate. If you are looking for information on how to get started there are several resources: 1. Your own family members may be your greatest resource. 2. NCBA’s Young Producer Council has created several social media guides that can be found at https://thecattlecall.wordpress.com/ social-media-guides/ 3. The AgChat Foundation is a great resource. Not only do they have online resources (agchat.org), but they also put on numerous social media workshops through the country. Using social media as an extension to face-to-face conversation can easily allow you to broaden your community and strengthen your reach. It has proved to be a valuable resource for our family and farm, and I see its influence only continue to grow.

Tracy GoreTska:

A Combination

Macey, Cash, Mandi and Tracy Goretska

of Passion, Knowledge, & Skill

Spend a few minutes with Tracy Goretska and you will discover he has a passion for what he does. In addition, he has the knowledge and has developed the skills that have made Goretska Show Steers a leading supplier of champion show steers across the Midwest. Tracy, his wife Mandi, and their children, Macey and Cash, live in Corydon, Iowa, which is about an hour south of Des Moines. Corydon has always been home for Tracy, as he grew up on his family’s cattle operation that included Chianina cattle and a backgrounding operation. Like most Midwestern farm kids, he participated in showing as a youngster. “I showed steers at the county level, as well as the Iowa State Fair and the American Royal. I enjoyed working with my steers and everything about the barn, especially on show day. I can’t say that I was competitive at the state and national level, but it opened my eyes to the scope of the club calf industry and a dream to make this my career,” he explains.

After graduating from high school in 1987, Tracy began finding work clipping and fitting cattle for various sales. He was also making himself a student of the business by studying the steers that won, and the genetics behind them. In 1992, he began buying and selling a few show steers. Today, Goretska Show Steers annually markets about 175 head, including those raised from their 40 head of Chi x Mainecross females.

Years ago, he started selling calves with Barry Nowatzke in Indiana. They held a sale together for three years. October 1997 was the first annual Goretska Show Steers sale in Iowa, and it has continued every fall. In addition to the annual sale, Tracy and Wade Rodgers have an online

sale through Breeders World every November. Tracy travels throughout the Midwest every spring, searching for and buying the calves he believes his customers will want and, more importantly, have success with in the show ring. “I travel with and partner on several calves with Wade Rodgers. There are a lot of great cattle across the Midwest. South Dakota, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Nebraska, along with Iowa, have great cattle producers where we find sale calves. We usually buy the calves straight off the cow, bring them home, get them through the weaning process and begin preparing them for the sale. We put them on a solid nutritional plan, clip and halter break and get them ready for the sales,” Tracy explains. Their calves have attracted a geographically large and loyal customer base. “We annually market calves to customers from California to New York and all points between. We have many repeat customers. We have families who purchased from us for their first child and


Macey Goretska won the Grand Champion Market Heifer title at the 2012 Iowa State Fair. “We spend a lot of time on the road at shows to help our customers on show day. It’s not possible to be at every show for every customer, but we stay in touch with everyone and do our best to attend as many shows as possible.” -- Tracy Goretska The Goretska Show Steers Team includes back row left to right: Chad Lukavsky, Brett Loughead, Tyler McVey, Justin Lain, and Tracy Goretska and front left to right: Derek Head and Jake Campbell

continued buying from us for their other children over several years. We have now been in business long enough that our customer base includes the next generation of families buying for their kids. We are humbled by the number of families who rely on us for their projects. It motivates us to continue to find good calves and provide a high level of customer service,” says Tracy, adding that their offering includes something for all price ranges. Their business model includes finding great calves, developing them prior to sale, matching the calves with families, and providing customer service after the sale. “We spend a lot of time on the road at shows to help our customers on show day.

It’s not possible to be at every show for every customer, but we stay in touch with everyone and do our best to attend as many shows as possible.” “Our calves are competitive year in and year out. We have had the Reserve Grand Champion Steer at the National Western in Denver and have won the American Royal Steer Show multiple times. We’ve been lucky enough to have had Grand Champion Steer at over 20 state fairs. One of our customers won the Kentucky State Fair Grand Champion Steer honor five years in a row, with calves from us. We were honored that they kept coming back to us for their next project and worked hard to win the state title year after year,” describes Tracy.

Tracy shared that he gives credit to the people he has around him for the success of his business. “We have an awesome team,” he says. He is quick to give credit to Chad Lukavsky, who has been part of the Goretska Show Steers team for over 10 years. Tracy and Mandi believe one of the most gratifying aspects of the business is that so many customers have become their friends over the years and in some cases, like family. When asked about the keys to his success, Tracy summed it up very succinctly. “Treat people like you would want to be treated and sell calves that you would want to show!” January/February 2013 • theshowcircuit.com

Results and Recommendations from the 2011 National Beef Quality Audit

The first National Beef Quality Audit (NBQA) was conducted in 1991, and it has been repeated every five years since. The audits are funded with beef checkoff dollars and are based on a set of three core principles: 1) An industry-wide scorecard gives direction to decisionmakers across the beef industry in order to improve the quality and the value of the U.S. beef supply; 2) Identifying and correcting quality shortfalls and nonconformance will lead to greater profitability through improved demand; and 3) Only that which is measured can be effectively managed.

Since the first NBQA, each subsequent audit has incorporated updated approaches to obtain a more meaningful and robust set of results. The 2011 NBQA was no different. In order to increase the functionality of the data generated and to develop a dynamic roadmap to improve beef quality, three phases of data collection and a strategy development workshop were conducted. Phase I: Face-to-face interviews were conducted over 11 months with feeders, packers, retailers, foodservice operators and allied industry/government employees who defined and ranked seven quality categories (how and where cattle were raised; lean, fat and bone; weight and size; cattle genetics; visual characteristics; food safety; and eating satisfaction). Phase II: Research teams surveyed 18,000 carcasses on the harvest floor from eight beef processing plants, determined quality and yield grade from 9,000 chilled carcasses from 28 beef processing plants and compared instrument grading results with USDA grader information on 2.4 million carcasses from 17 plants.

Phase III: A survey to determine the adoption of Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) management principles utilizing both online and written questions resulted in 3,755 responses from seedstock operators, commercial cow-calf producers, backgrounders, stocker/ yearling operators, feedlot producers and dairymen. Strategy Workshop: After results were collected and summarized by researchers, a workshop was held to discuss the implications of the research for the U.S. beef industry. Forty-one industry leaders who represented all sectors of the beef industry participated. The strategy developed at this workshop provides the beef industry with a blueprint for the next five years and is the focus of this fact sheet. Results of the Audit The top three concerns identified by the 1991 audit were the amount of external fat, seam fat and overall beef palatability. Over the next three audits (1995, 2000 and 2005), the identified challenges were overall uniformity, tenderness and carcass weights. However, different challenges surfaced in the 2005 audit: traceability of cattle, segmentation in the industry, and market signals. The 2011 audit clearly defined and ranked the current challenges and emphasized consumer concerns and the necessity for feedback signals up and down the beef chain.

The top three challenges were food safety, eating satisfaction and how and where the cattle were raised. When the audit researchers interviewed people from the different pre-harvest segments of the beef industry about how they intentionally influenced beef “quality,” the answers varied to some degree depending on the sector. Overall, animal handling, preventative health programs and nutritional management were the top


three responses. These priority rankings provide insights into areas that require future educational attention. These would include genetics, documentation of production practices, meeting standards for BQA and reducing nonconformance in carcasses. Using a best-worst scaling to rank specified quality categories, respondents in the post-harvest segments ranked food safety, eating satisfaction and how and where the cattle were raised as the most important. It is apparent from these results that industry segments closer to the consumer (packer to the retailer) place greater importance on issues related to food safety and eating satisfaction than characteristics related to carcass weight and size, lean, fat and bone percentages and animal genetics. When evaluating how cattle feeders responded, how and where cattle were raised, weight and size of the live animal and genetics were more important than the quality categories identified by processors and retailers. When asked what the top weaknesses of the beef industry were, the participants listed industry fragmentation and not effectively telling the beef story. Food safety issues and variability in the product were also identified as barriers. What does nonconformance (not meeting the ideal targets for quality) cost the beef industry? An estimate of the lost economic opportunities for not meeting quality targets is presented in Table 1.

The Audit determined that more than $40 per head were not realized, primarily because of not meeting targets for both quality and yield grades. However, this is approximately $12/head better than the 2005 audit. Barriers to continued improvement The Strategy Workshop participants, with the help of the audit researchers, collectively identified the following barriers to continued progress for the beef industry. • Disparate market signals. The industry must balance the needs

of all industry segments and create a system that transmits information and facilitates data flow by communicating the proper signals throughout the beef supply chain. • Lack of trust between industry segments. A transparent and accurate information-sharing system between segments would help increase trust and build a more sustainable beef industry. • Differing definitions of “quality” and value. This communication barrier among segments must be resolved. • Inadequate recordkeeping. Utilizing BQA and proper recordkeeping must become more consistent through the entire supply chain. Instead of promoting “guidelines,” it is time to establish production standards. • Disconnect with the dairy industry. Because dairy animals supply a significant portion of the beef marketed, communicating the importance of BQA to the dairy segment is crucial, either through veterinarians, managers, milk cooperatives or directly. • Non-conforming cattle. The industry must eliminate nonconformance and provide better market signals that evoke responses leading to better selection, production practices and post-harvest fabrication. • Safety challenges. Research and implementation efforts must continue to address emerging pathogen issues such as Salmonella and E. coli. • Uninformed consumers. Finally, we need to do a much better job of telling the consumer how we raise beef under a variety of production practices and different environments and why we do it this way. What are the specific recommendations to reduce barriers and improve beef profitability? After several days of presentations, debate and rigorous discussion of the results, the participants listed the following as priorities for implementation: • A transparent system of information-sharing regarding animals and products among chain segments is crucial to building trust and providing assurances to every customer along the chain, including the consumer. • Develop effective full supply-chain safety interventions. • Increase the focus on pathogenic strains of E. coli and Salmonella.

• Implement BQA and demonstrate conformance through written records. • Encourage dairy BQA engagement by working together with veterinarians, milk cooperatives and managers. • Document the economic value and market recognition of BQA programs. • Develop strategies for management and determination of the impact of growth-promoting technologies (e.g.beta-agonists). • Increase funding to improve eating satisfaction. • Use genetics to optimize cutability and palatability. As an industry, we must do a much better job of telling the beef story. We have terrific examples of successes, including implementation of BQA programs, animal welfare, stewardship, low-stress handling, food safety and enhancing flavor and tenderness. We must, however, be an authentic, honest and transparent industry, because that is what the consumer demands of us. Members of the strategy team are all leaders in the beef industry who are seriously committed to continuously improving quality. Some of their memorable quotes from the strategy session were: • “Calves should not be part of a ‘witness protection program.’ When the rest of the world and our competitors are identifying their animals, why can’t we?” -- cattle feeder • “It doesn’t matter what our weights or yield grades are if we don’t have a consumer who will buy our products.” --cow-calf producer • “Cutability is industry-oriented. Palatability is consumer-oriented. We need to be more focused on palatability.” -- cow-calf producer • “We need to keep our image and connect it with our science.” -- cow-calf producer • “If we don’t have feedback signals or don’t use them, then how can we be successful?”-- cattle feeder • “We say that we do things ‘more right than wrong,’ but we don’t have a written protocol. We want and need the education of BQA.” -- cattle feeder Tom Field, the former executive director of producer education for NCBA, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff Program, challenged

238 January/February 2013 • theshowcircuit.com

beef producers to step up and have the courage to continuously improve beef eating satisfaction through total quality management.

Beef producers all along the production chain must ask, and then answer, three questions about their production practices: 1) Will this decision affect eating satisfaction? 2) Does this decision improve product integrity and customer trust? 3) Will I be proud to make this a part of telling the beef industry’s story?
