“Captain Obvious progeny were the talk of the yards at the 2010 National Western Stock Show. A Captain son sold for $7900 at the public auction, and 5 Captain sons averaged an amazing 1.29 REA/cwt in the Lakeside pen. Sullivan Farms also purchased a flush out of Captain's dam! Count on Captain Obvious to moderate frame, add guts, and work on your heifers, while maintaining and even improving structural soundness. We are also excited to see what Captain's son, Nitro, will produce this spring.” Lance Ellsworth — Cattle Visions

Homozygous black and polled!

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

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

reports are lights out!

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

Windfall

Sire: Payday • Dam: Queen 010 by Explorer

Gambles

Royal Flush

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

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

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

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

Opportunity

Sire: Marathon • Dam:Lady 703 by Saugahatchee

Rodman

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

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

The Answer

Sire: Final Answer • Dam: by 878 son

MCATL By-Product

GCC

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

Total Recall

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

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

Showmanship Points by Division

Oklahoma Club Calf Association - February ‘11

Greetings from OCCA, As I’m writing, the snow drifts in central Oklahoma are mounting fast from the 40-mph winds, which are also making it pretty miserable for those who have to endure the negative-22-degree wind chill. I just received word that a livestock show in our area was canceled due to the weather. Hard to believe, as I remember many occasions when OCCA members plowed their way through horrible winter conditions just to make it to the next show! The kids chasing points have been very busy, since there has been a show almost every weekend lately. Most recently, the AGRs hosted an outstanding show in Stillwater. It was their largest with over 200 heifers and 100-plus steers. It was a great show! Last week, I had the opportunity to see our latest sponsored trailer. CM did a great job. It is beautiful – lots of chrome. Special thanks to our generous sponsors: CM Trailers, Purina, Cinch, and Cruel Girl. The last couple of shows of the season are coming up. Best of luck and safe travels to those showing in Pryor and Claremore. Sincerely,

Tim B Stidham, OCCA President

A Story of Success with ET and IVF irl Buck, owner of Buck Cattle Company, has worked hard to develop a strong Maine-Anjou cattle operation. With the use of an extensive embryo transfer program, along with dedication and special attention to customer service, the

Buck family has experienced success in many aspects of the cattle industry. Jirl was raised on a ranch in Madill, Okla., and showed steers and heifers in 4-H and FFA. Upon graduation from high school, Buck attended Murray State College, as well as Oklahoma State University. During his academic years, he worked for various purebred operations and also gained some experience in trading club calves. The true beginning of the operation was in 1987, when he began building a cowherd of primarily Maine-Anjou females. The first Fall Premier Sale was held in 1995 and the first Spring Edition Sale occurred in 1996. Currently, Buck Cattle Company consists of 150 MaineAnjou cows and produces 150 embryo calves each year. In 2009, they began adding a few elite Hereford females to their program. Each year, Buck Cattle Company markets and sells 300 females, as well as 125 bulls in both their annual sales as well as private treaty. One thing that brings customers back to Buck Cattle Company year after year is exceptional customer service. “Customer service is number one,” said Buck. “We want to see our customers have success, whether their goal is to win in the show ring, produce top selling offspring, or to add performance to their commercial calf crop.” Embryo Transfer and In-Vitro Fertilization have played a big role in Buck’s operation. With the use of embryo transplant they have been able to take their top-producing females and generate a larger return. “Without embryo transplant Buck Cattle would not be where it is today. We do not have the financial resources to own enough great cows to meet our demand for quality.

With embryo transplant 20 donors can meet our demand.” IVF has also been successful in many different instances. First, when older donors have reached the end of their career, IVF has enabled Buck Cattle Company to achieve production that they would have never received with the traditional process. Second, they have utilized IVF to produce larger numbers of embryos in a shorter period of time on some of their top-producing females. A specific case of IVF success occurred in 2005, when Pannell Miss 4072, a cornerstone in their program and one of the top producing females in Maine-Anjou history, shut down in embryo production. In the fall of 2006, Buck sent her to Trans Ova Genetics in Iowa. With the use of IVF, in the fall of 2007 and the spring of 2008, Pannell Miss 4072 had 22 calves born. Those calves generated $241,000. The success of embryo transfer and IVF doesn’t end with the Maine-Anjou operation. In 2003, Buck formed a partnership with Dillon and HD Page, the owners of D&H Cattle Co., to start a bucking bull program. Pages were wellestablished producers of great bucking bulls, but had done very little embryo work at that time. When the Buck family became involved, they stepped up the program with the production of 100-plus embryo calves born that year, as well as for five more years following. “The entire Page & Buck partnership herd was built through embryo transplant,” Buck said. “Our partnership herd now consists of 150 females and 90” of them are products of embryo transfer. We now produce 60 embryo transplants each year for the bucking bull program.” The partnership has two bucking stock sales each year selling cows and yearling bulls in the Bred to Buck sale, held in June, as well as a bred heifer sale in September. Jirl and his wife Brenda, have a 17-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey is involved with showing cattle and markets a few calves of her own in their production sales. Jirl and Brenda enjoy working with youth and are the junior advisors for the Okla. Maine-Anjou Assoc.

Value of Corn Distillers Grains in Finishing Diets Third article in the series: “Quality Characteristics of Beef From Steers Fed DGS”

I

n the two previous articles of this series I have addressed the feedlot performance and economic advantages for including DGS in beef cattle finishing diets. The feeding trials we have conducted suggest that 25% dietary inclusion of DGS results in the greatest biological efficiency, 40% dietary inclusion of DGS results in the greatest economic efficiency and that 70% dietary inclusion of DGS can return more dollars over feed cost depending on the relative price spread between shelled corn and modified wet distillers grains. However, the ultimate factor determining whether or not DGS should be included in finishing cattle diets is the effect of DGS on consumer acceptability of the beef produced. Therefore, we evaluated several characteristics of the beef produced from the carcasses of the steers fed in these trials. Accordingly, we evaluated the percent moisture, percent fat, tenderness as measured by the Warner-Bratzler shear force method and the percent product lost during cooking of rib steaks (Table 1). We also, evaluated the shelf life of rib steaks by observing color changes on day 1, 3 and 7 of chilled storage. Color values for lightness (L), redness (a) and yellowness (b) were made using a Minolta Colorimeter. No significant differences in the carcass quality traits such as percent moisture, percent fat, cooking loss percentage or tenderness scores were observed between rib steaks collected from carcasses of steers fed 0% DGS, 25% DGS, 40% DGS or 70% DGS. The average shear force value for all the steaks was 2.46kg(5.41lbs), which is considered very tender, and which we expected because nearly 90% of the steers in these trials graded low choice or higher with no significant differences between DGS treatments (refer to article two in the Jan/Feb 2011 issue). Significant differences do to DGS treatment were observed in the Minolta color values, however (Table 2). Steers fed 70% DGS diets produced rib steaks with significantly lower a and b values compared to rib steaks from steers fed 0, 25 or 40% DGS. Lower redness scores (a) are associated with higher unsaturated fatty acid values in beef fat and lower yellowness scores(b) are correlated with lower marbling scores. Reduced redness (a) values could be expected if more unsaturated fatty acids escaped rumen fermentation; and since distillers grains are high in corn oil

264

March 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

and corn oil is approximately 50% linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated fatty acid) it is likely that steers fed the 70% DGS diets had sufficient amounts of corn oil escaping the rumen to substantially alter the composition of the beef fat. While there were no significant differences in quality grades of the carcasses between treatments, the steers fed 70% DGS did tend to have lower numerical quality grade (marbling scores). Therefore, lower yellowness (b) values could be expected. Minolta color was evaluated on day 1, day 3 and day 7 of chilled storage for rib steaks collected from carcasses of steers fed each of the four DGS treatments (Table 3). No significant changes were observed for degree of lightness (L), redness (a) or yellowness (b) across the seven days of shelf life for steers fed shelled corn diets without DGS inclusion (ODGS). Both a and b values decreased progressively from day 1 to day 3 to day 7 for rib steaks collected from steers fed 25, 40 or 70% DGS diets. It is important to note that while the declines in their quality characteristics were significant, all Minolta color scores were still within value ranges considered acceptable to consumers and should not represent any decreased value. These observations do suggest that beef from steers fed diets containing distiller’s grains could have shorter effective shelf life when presented for retail sale as fresh meat over an extended period of time. However, these declines in color scores may be of practical importance in terms of consumer acceptability only for beef presented for sale over an extended numbers of days and only realistically for beef produced by steers fed diets containing 70% DGS.

or years, investors have heard the mantra of investing for the long term—that is, to create a portfolio based on your goals and stick with it despite

3. Generally, make more comprehensive rebalancing an annual event. Many professionals agree that investors who rebalance at this interval or slightly longer may reap many of the same benefits as those who do so more often.

the rumblings of a fickle market or the allure of popular

trends. In theory, this is a suitable strategy for many investors, but staying the course wisely should also acknowledge the need for the occasional mandatory detour, taking on additional passengers, having fender benders and making complete aboutfaces. The better prepared a portfolio is to respond to unforeseeable life events, the more likely it will be able to help you reach your desired financial destination. Annual Rebalancing Annual rebalancing can be a key to the long-term health of your portfolio. Rebalancing involves shifting assets from one type of investment to another to bring a portfolio in line with an asset mix created for specific goals. If this is done on a regular or automatic basis, you can help ensure that your portfolio stays on track. Many mutual fund companies offer the option of automatic rebalancing within various investment programs. This service can help investors avoid micromanaging their portfolios. Seven Rules of Effective Portfolio Maintenance 1. Construct an initial portfolio with a goal-sensitive allocation of stocks, bonds and cash. Keep informed about the subsets and varieties of these categories.

2. Be aware of your short- and long-term goals when designing your portfolio.

4. Remember that rebalancing comes from paring down or eliminating specific investments in a portfolio. In many cases there may be tax consequences, such as when capital gains are realized. Try not to burden yourself with tax liabilities you may not be prepared to handle. Yet at the same time, you must weigh the benefits of overall return over tax savings. 5. Don’t rely on natural progressions in the market to rebalance a portfolio. 6. Consider contributing to your portfolios via a systematic or dollar-cost averaging strategy. Systematic investing, the process of making consistent contributions on a regular basis, can help bring you closer to your financial goals. 7. Stand by your plan. Your portfolio was created to respond to a number of scenarios and goals. Don’t allow yourself to be easily swayed by the latest trends, but do contact your Financial Advisor if you feel the need to make a change.

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

worth watching: TEMPLE GRANDIN ABOUT THE MOVIE… Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The film chronicles Temple’s early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother, aunt, and science teacher; and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behavior. Grandin turned her unique nature into a behavioral tool that revolutionized the cattle industry and laid the groundwork for her successful career as an author, lecturer, and pioneering advocate for autism and autism spectrum disorder education. THE CAST Claire Danes, Catherine O’Hara, Julia Ormond, David Strathairn ACCOLADES Won 7 Emmy Awards, 1 Golden Globe, and 1 Screen Actors Guild Award.

WHAT WE THOUGHT This is a really inspiring film, showcasing what one person can do (despite difficulties, prejudices, and setbacks) to make a better world. As many of our meat-judging readers will know, Temple Grandin helped change the inner-workings of the meat packing industry. She has been heard at lectures and discussions around the country, sharing her unique insights with cattlemen, university students and faculty, and the public. She is doing much to strike up an open-minded conversation about animal handling between the producers and the public. Many segments of the movie are filmed through Temple’s own viewpoint, a fascinating perspective on what it’s like to be autistic. How interesting it was to see how her mannerisms and characteristics impacted her relationships with people around her, at many times both heart-breaking and uplifting. The film is well-paced, interactive, and thoughtful. Appropriate for all ages and all viewers, it will likely make you stop and think about many issues presented in the film. There are villains and heroes, tragedy and comedy, and a cheeky undertone that will have you smiling.

a good read THE BEEF PRINCESS OF PRACTICAL COUNTY BY MICHELLE HOUTS ABOUT THE BOOK After years of waiting, it is finally Libby Ryan’s turn to shine at the Practical County Fair. Libby is filled with excitement as she and her granddad pick out two calves for her to raise on her family’s cattle farm, in hopes of winning the annual steer competition. Against her father’s advice, Libby gives the calves names, even though both steers will eventually be auctioned off to the highest bidder. What’s the big deal? She’s lived on a cattle farm forever. But, after a few months of preparing for the Practical County Fair, Libby finds that she is becoming more and more attached to her steers. When Libby’s mother convinces her to enter the Beef Princess pageant, Libby realizes that she’ll have to face off against the dreaded Darling sisters. Suddenly, everything related to the Practical County Fair feels like a big deal. Luckily, Libby can count on her best friend to get her through most of the county fair chaos. Yet once reality sets in and she realizes that her steers will soon be sold to the highest bidder, the chaos in Libby’s heart becomes too much to bear.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Michelle Houts is an elementary school teacher and an adjunct faculty member at Wright State University Lake Campus in Celina, Ohio. Originally from Westerville, Ohio, she earned degrees from The Ohio State University, Write State, and the University of Cincinnati. She now lives on a grain and livestock farm in west central Ohio with her husband and three children. WHAT WE THOUGHT Like many of our readers, this princesshopeful has her feet firmly planted in barn boots. This story is one that so many young women (and men) will identify with. Libby raises steers to show at the county fair. Throughout her year of breaking, rinsing, walking, brushing, and working the calves, she develops a bond with them that she never saw coming. Trying to live up to her older brother’s legacy and prove that she can be a tough-minded, clear-headed cattlemen – nee, cattlewoman – she realizes that there is much more to this process than taking home the desired blue ribbon. It’s so refreshing to read a book about “our world�. While this story

is a local tale, it is broad enough to be applied to anywhere in the world where young people face daily chores, tough decisions, rivalry with dreaded classmates, and working through problems with the help of their family members and friends. This is a good and honest look at what it’s like to be a farm kid and care for a show animal. How nice to share our world with the public in such a touching way! Michelle Houts gives a great performance in her first book and injects the story with humor, turmoil, nerves, challenge, and personal growth. Many young readers will identify with and learn from Libby and be even more inspired to create their own stories at their own county fairs‌ or jackpot shows‌ or livestock expositions. Good luck to all our readers on living out their own tales!

What Do The Neighbors Think?

erhaps it’s because “professional communicator” is my adopted career choice, but I spend a lot of time wondering what people think. Back in my radio days, I always thought about how a given farmer might react to a story, or to what I thought was an especially witty comment. I’m a high-feedback type of person. Even though I spend a lot of time wondering what people think and observing how consumers react to agriculture’s “story,” I am increasingly convinced we as a community do not spend nearly enough time considering these questions. My first steps down the path of trying to understand others’ ways of thinking came when I was an Ohio FFA Officer, and our team was exposed to Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The “7 Habits” are common knowledge now, but it was a fairly new and certainly unique concept to me back then. One of my favorite habits discussed in the book was Habit No. 5: “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” I’ll admit, I’m not all that good at the seven habits, including No. 5. Maybe because I am particularly fond of the sound of my own voice, but I sometimes struggle with giving the other side of an argument its due consideration before launching into a full-throated defense of my own position. Most folks in food production, especially those of us in the livestock community, are acutely aware that farmers and ranchers face an unprecedented onslaught of challenges and criticisms. Our detractors are seemingly many, and our champions seemingly few. The natural, gut-check reaction is to kick the enemy square in the teeth. That was the reaction of many last month when television talk show magnate Oprah Winfrey challenged her crew to “go vegan” for a week. The hue and cry for Oprah’s head on a platter ran rampant on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. I completely understand. You see, I too have a healthy disdain for Oprah. From way back to the Texas beef debacle (you may be too young to remember this fiasco, so check out Wikipedia for back-

ground), I have held an inborn skepticism toward Oprah and her cult of zombie-minded followers. Be that as it may, the reaction to her “vegan challenge” was way overblown. As with many affronts to our way of life raising livestock and eating meat, our reaction is often bigger than the initial problem. Case in point: my friend, the “closet vegetarian.” My friend, who does actually eat meat, is always teetering on the edge of going full-blown PETA on me. She, like you and me, loves animals, and just can’t stand the thought of any possible harsh treatment of animals. When I pondered culling an open cow last fall, she jumped on me with both feet. “It’s not her fault she’s not pregnant!” she wailed. I relented and gave the cow “another shot.” I’ll let you know how that turns out. When my friend heard about the Oprah fandango, she watched the episode and reported back to me on her thoughts. Amazingly enough, the transparency with which Cargill welcomed Oprah into its processing facilities won meat processers some major credibility with my quasimeatless pal. I was shocked. In talking with my colleagues after the episode, they shared similar experiences and observations. By keeping an open mind and opening their doors wide open for Oprah’s cameras, Cargill may have convinced millions of wishy-washy meat eaters that consumption of animalderived proteins isn’t bad business, after all. The next time you get the urge to knock someone’s head in because they challenged our way of life, stop, take a breath, and ask yourself one simple question: “What do my non-farm “...always friends think about what I do for a livassume someone’s ing?” In your daily operations on your farm watching.” or ranch, in the show barn or at the fair, — ANDY always assume someone’s watching. In VANCE fact, spend some time thinking about how your treatment of an animal might look on YouTube or Facebook. If we’ve learned anything in animal agriculture in recent years, it is that on the internet is just where you might end up.

• Wide Open, popular Denver display bull in 2011, is one of the most unique Simmental sires to come onto the scene in recent history. While in Denver 2010, he was a high seller and was named Bull Calf Champion on the hill. • His fresh genetics, power and athleticism made him a favorite among purebred breeders and club calf producers alike. His sire Foreman, sired a $65,000 half interest calf in Denver 2011 and Wide Open’s pedigree traces to X339U on the top and bottom, plus Black Irish Kansas, Black Mick and 600U...maternal legends. • If you are looking to inject some maternal power into your cowherd without sacrificing eye appeal and performance, Wide Open is an absolute must use bull. Semen $25 per unit; sexed semen coming mid spring 2011.

The proof is in the performance, Chopper did not disappoint in his first calf crop. He produced a $38,500 heifer calf at the Classic Female Sale with an average on 6 head of $13,392 in his first sire group. We continue to get reports from across the nation on Chopper calves. They are big topped, solid made and marketable, with beautiful baldy faces. He and his offspring are a direct testament to the power that Steel Force is able to transmit down through the generations.

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

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

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