TBP THE BIG PICTURE

Cattle Fax ProjeCtions inClude Favorable Weather and reCord PriCes

C

attlemen and women gathered at the 2014 Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show to hear CattleFax market analysts’ projections for the year ahead. Creighton University Professor Emeritus Art Douglas told the audience he expects improved moisture conditions in the majority of the United States, including improvements of the droughtaffected areas of the west coast. As precipitation returns back to more normal levels for the 2014 growing season, CattleFax predicts farmers in the U.S. should grow an adequate corn crop to build the carry over supply. The improved corn supplies should assure lower corn/input costs over the next 12 to 24 months, according to CattleFax Grain Market Analyst Mike Murphy.

Prices are expected to average $135 compared to $126 during 2013, an increase of 7%. Yearling prices are expected to average $168, an increase of 13% from the 2013 average of $146. According to Good, calf prices will average $193, up 13% from last year’s average of $168.

We’ve got different customers with different preferences and different pockets books.

Global Market Specialist Brett Stuart indicated that beef exports are expected to be near even in 2014 with record-high prices being the limiting factor. At the same time, expectations are for beef imports to be near even, despite the need for 90% trim due to the expected lower non-fed slaughter rates in the U.S. The driving factor for stagnant imports is the growth of China demand for global beef which will continue to divert beef from Australia into the China market and away from the U.S. market.

CattleFax Senior Analyst Kevin Good indicated the combination of improved moisture conditions resulting in lower input costs and record high calf values should lead to beef cow herd expansion beginning in 2014. Beef production in the U.S. will fall, with per-capita supply declining 4.5%. However, he said the pork and poultry supplies are expected to increase, leaving total meat supplies near even. CattleFax projects the Retail Beef Demand Index will improve by 1% due to continued modest economic growth.

50 March 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

Good said because of the continued tighter feeder cattle supply, the margin segments of the beef production system, both feed yards and packers, will struggle with excess capacity. Look for continued closure of both packing and feeding entities over the next 12 to 24 months.

“The lower input cost will have a direct correlation to improved feeder cattle and calf values in 2014 and with continued help from Mother Nature, we will be in better shape with regard to hay supply and prices moving forward,” Murphy said.

“As we think about our consumers today, not only domestically but globally, they’re a lot more diverse than they have been in past,” Good said. “We’ve got different customers with different preferences and different pockets books.”

“After years of tightening supplies, the cow-calf sector will again remain in the driver’s seat during 2014,” Good said. CattleFax CEO Randy Blach summarized the year ahead by saying almost all segments of the production chain will be profitable, although margin operators will continue to face challenges over the next few years.

Blach remains optimistic for the long-term cattle industry as the profit incentives will result in a larger U.S. cattle herd over the next five years, creating business opportunities for those willing to adapt to a dynamic and changing business environment. “You can start to see the globalization of the protein markets from the 1990s on,” Blach said. “We have the most efficient production system in the world and we are the largest exporter of protein onto the global market.” -- NCBA


THE BIG PICTURE

Farm inCome to remain high through

D

2023

espite lower prices for many agricultural products in the near future, USDA is projecting U.S. farm income to remain historically high through 2023. Analysis for the report was conducted prior to completion of the Agricultural Act of 2014, and was based on the assumption of continuation of policies in the 2008 Farm Bill. Projections range from long-term economic growth, global production and consumption trends, global trade trends, commodity prices, farm income and more.

USDA projects global economic growth to average 3.2% annually over the next decade, with stronger growth projected in developing countries, including China, India and countries in Africa and Latin America. The U.S. economic growth is projected to average 2.6% over the next decade. “Steady global economic growth supports longer term gains in world food demand, global agricultural trade, and U.S. agricultural exports,” according to the report. While prices for many of the major crops are projected to decline in the next few years, long-term growth in global demand, a low-valued U.S. dollar, and demand for biofuel, will hold prices for corn, oilseeds and other major crops above pre-2007 levels, according to the report. As a result of recovering from high feed prices in recent years and drought, USDA is projecting livestock production and per capital red meat consumption to increase through 2023. -- Drovers

I do a significant amount of mentoring and advising individual students along their academic career at Texas A&M University. This often means helping them recognize their passions in life. Additionally, I identify industry and job opportunities for agriculture students. I travel throughout the year to increase company awareness of our students and work to develop more internship and post-graduation opportunities for our College of Agriculture and Life Sciences graduates. They truly are the best students! hoW did you get into this line of Work?

When I started my graduate program, I knew I needed to decide on a career path. After making my “what makes me tick” list, I found that people, agriculture, and Texas A&M all rose to the top of that list. From that, I started networking with folks at TAMU to try and find opportunities. I had always enjoyed helping others and often thought being an advisor would be a great job. What made being a career advisor even more appeal-

ing is the opportunity to continue to work with industry professionals. What do you like about your job?

I love helping and encouraging others. I get to meet some really great people and talk to a lot of industry leaders. No matter where I am, I am always networking and interacting with others to promote our students. What are the toughest Challenges for What you do?

Managing my presentation schedule, job development visits, and career fair prep each semester. This often occurs all simultaneously and requires a substantial amount of planning. do you need a College degree in your profession?

Yes, you do need a college degree.

Where should somebody go to get started in your line of Work?

For someone wanting to working in a university, I recommend doing some job shadowing. Find others who are working with students that you can learn from. Watching them interact with students and other professionals. This will help you see what your potential job could be like! What is a typiCal day on the job like for you?

Each day is different. During the peak season (August – October and January – March) I am

in and out of classrooms almost every day. I also spend a large part of my day meeting one – on – one with students about future job plans, interviews, and their résumé/cover letter. I also spend time at various conventions and stock shows working on job development. I’m not sure I’ve ever had two days that are the same in this job. That is part of what makes me love it so much! What Would most surprise a student about your Career?

Not everyone in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences wears cowboy boots and a hat every day. Agriculture is so much more than that. It is such a diverse and technologically advanced industry. So many opportunities for anyone and everyone! anything you Wish someone Would have told you When you Were in sChool?

Well, people told me these two statements, but I never fully appreciated them until I was in the work force. 1) Something worth doing is something worth doing right. 2) Work hard and keep your nose clean. Both of these statements are so true. As a young person, it is easy to fall into unethical situations and be required to make decisions that you may not want to make. I can tell you from experience— ALWAYS do what is right and everything else will take care of itself- including the bottom line.

MCATL By-Product is an outstanding herd sire that can be used in a variety of ways. He works not only on Purebred Angus cattle but has really clicked with Purebred Simmentals. By-Product calves are born with a ton of hair, a ton of vigor, and awesome blend of both muscle and style which mature into very easy doing, functional cattle. By Product is clean of ALL KNOWN GENETIC DEFECTS and is a great outcross to some of the most popular bulls like First Class, First Rate, and Brilliance.

The most consistent Angus bull today!

SDJPS MeMbeRS,

{

well we been affected heavily by the cold winter and sub zero temps here in sd, and to say the least it’s getting old in a hurry. I know I’d definitely take a couple weeks of 25-30 de-gree weather without the bellowing of the wind. I’ve even set my computer backdrop to a warm sunny beach scene to counter act my vitamin d deficiency! Hopefully mother nature straightens up her act soon! The sioux Empire Farm show just wrapped up with many par-ticipants from sd and the surrounding states. The next shows on the docket are the Block and Bridle jackrabbit classic and the AGR classic, a two day sanctioned show in Brookings, sd. make plans to attend; this was definitely one of my favorite shows growing up. After Feb. we gear down for a while and concentrate on calving season. make sure to watch the web-site for spring and summer show dates. Stay warm - Audra Scheel | SDJPS Director audra.sdjps@yahoo.com | www.sdjps.com

OKLAHOMA CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

S

pring break in Oklahoma means only one thing to our OCCA exhibitors, the Oklahoma Youth Expo has finally arrived! The early mornings and late nights spent feeding, washing, working hair and improving showmanship skills comes down to looking for that one special nod from the judge during the 10-day event. For some exhibitors, this will be their first trip to OYE. For others, it will be their last. Though when the dust settles on March 22nd, there will have only been one lucky exhibitor selected as the Grand Champion Steer exhibitor, another one selected as the Supreme Purebred Heifer Exhibitor, and another selected as the Supreme Influence Heifer Exhibitor, each of you are champions because you are part of a program that builds character and responsibility that will last long after the dust has settled.

Name: _________________________________________ Phone: ___________________________________ Email: _________________________________________ Address: ______________________________ City: ________________ State: ______ Zip: __________ Date of birth: _________________ My School is: ___________________________________ I am a member of (circle one) 4-H or FFA FFA District (circle one) Central SE SW NE NW Have you shown beef cattle before April 1, 2007?

Planning for reproductive success courtesty of trans ova genetics | by Sara kober

W

ith late-night barn checks and the constant battle with less than perfect weather conditions, calving season may be at the forefront of your mind this time of year. Before you know it, it will be time to begin thinking about reproductive work for the spring of 2014.

Some of the thingS you may want to be thinking about at thiS time include:

identify Potential donors There is no better time to decide which donors will enter your Embryo Transfer (ET) program than when this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calf crop is fresh in your mind. Make sure that all management practices are reviewed so that your donors transition through calving smoothly and have the best opportunity to have optimal results from a reproductive standpoint afterwards.

Building a Bank of frozen emBryos If you have donors that are being held open over the winter, this will be a great time to produce embryos and freeze them to be thawed and implanted in the spring. While ET is traditionally known for the ability to freeze embryos, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technology has now evolved to the point that embryos produced through IVF can be frozen similar to embryos produced through ET.

while thiS iS certainly not an excluSive liSt of thingS to be conSidering, it may be a good place to Start planning for 2014.

estimating recipient needs

With the US cowherd inventory at record lows, recipient females will be harder to come by. Given the tight supplies of cows in the country this year, early planning will be critical to ensure the one can make the number of pregnancies needed for their operation. Any information you can provide us in regards to your intentions for utilizing our recipients will allow us to better plan for ensuring adequate numbers are available.

iVf teCHnology

If you have not utilized In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) previously, now is a great time to visit with a Trans Ova Genetics representative about how this technology can complement and enhance your breeding program as you plan your reproductive work for the coming months. IVF technology has advantages that can benefit breeders who utilize the technology alone, or as a compliment to their current embryo transfer program. IVF, unlike ET, can be performed on pregnant donors up until day 100-120 of pregnancy. It can also be performed on young heifers, as well as those donors who aren’t responding to a traditional ET program.

SEXED SEMEN

When you decide that one gender may be more valuable than the other in relation to your breeding program, sexed semen is a technology to be considered to increase the changes of gender-chosen offspring. Recent techniques to “reverse sort” semen (sexing semen from a previously frozen straw), used in conjunction with IVF, has provided breeders with the option to provide frozen semen from nearly any sire of their choice, have it sorted, and use it in their herd to create calves of the desired gender.

COACH’S

Playbook By KindrA G OrdOn

TwO-Time ncaa champiOn men’s baskeTball cOach rick piTinO shares aDvice fOr playing The game Of life.

eaching others to achieve success is something Richard “Rick” Pitino knows a little something about. A native New Yorker, early in his career he accomplished his dream of coaching in the NBA for the New York Knicks in the late 80’s and for the Boston Celtics in the early 90’s. He then shifted his focus to college basketball and holds the distinction of being the only men’s coach in NCAA history to lead three different schools (Providence, Kentucky, and Louisville) to a Final Four and being the only coach in the NCAA to lead two different schools to an NCAA National Championship – the University of Kentucky in 1996 and the University of Louisville in 2013. Pitino chronicles his philosophy toward success as a motivational speaker and author. His most recent book, The One-Day Contract: How to Add Value to Every Minute of Your Life, was released in October 2013. Pitino says two years ago he was inspired to reflect on his life – and write the book – as he approached the age of 60 and after an unexpected loss by his team to local school Moorhead State. After the game upset happened, Pitino says, “For the first time I thought about stepping out of the game I love; my passion.” However, as he pondered it more he says, “I realized I was letting a loss get me down; I was running from the challenges that lie ahead.” He adds that everyone experiences failure at some point, but the question is how do you treat failure? His philosophy is that failure should be viewed as “fertilizer that will help future things grow in your life.” He adds, “Handle failure with courage; you must learn from it.”

new OuTlOOk

That experience prompted Pitino to reflect and work to improve himself. He recalled that during his career with the Knicks while visiting with a group of Wall Street brokers they chastised Pitino for the multi-year, multimillion dollar contracts that players got. They said, “In our industry, if we have one bad trade, we’re fired. We live on a one-day contract.”

202 March 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

That phrase stuck with Pitino, who says, “The one-day contract is about being as good as you can be every single day, so you move beyond ordinary and become extraordinary.” Pitino says he has practiced this philosophy of having a one-day contract with himself and his team for the past two years, and he credits it with helping him be as passionate of a coach at age 60 as he was at age 30. It has also contributed to his continued success – including the 2013 NCAA Championship. Pitino’s contract with himself – and advice to others – includes a daily routine and what he calls “meticulous” preparation for each day. Strive to wake up with a positive outlook each day, he suggests. He listens to upbeat music as he drives to work to help encourage that mindset. Throughout his career, Pitino says he has aimed to stay positive and remove negative people and distractions – particularly talk radio – from his life. He recounts a time when he was coaching the Knicks that he listened to the negative comments on the radio and says, “I didn’t like what was said about myself or other coaches. As a result, I noticed I wasn’t going to work in an upbeat positive mood ready to attack the day’s problems and ready to make my team better.” Realizing this, he stopped allowing negativity into his life. “For 30-plus years, I’ve never turned on talk radio. I turn away and turn off and totally tune out cynical, negative people,” he says. In today’s world of social media, he cautions others of the negative messages they allow into their life, and encourages them to instead surround themselves with upbeat and positive people. “My first piece of advice to people – especially young people – is to turn off the negative; tune out the cynical and surround yourself with positive and upbeat people because they raise up everybody’s abilities.”


Turn Off DisTracTiOns

Along with tuning out negativity, Pitino advocates having a “laser sharp focus on what you want to accomplish.” He adds, “You can’t get distracted; avoid traps along the way.” He uses the cell phone as an example, saying, “It’s an addictive piece of equipment. I know because two years ago I was addicted.” Pitino said he began to notice that he was always on his phone and the people he was with were always on theirs as well. As part of his contract with himself, Pitino decided to put his phone away while he was with others. “When I meet someone I want to treat them as the most significant person in my life at that moment.” He advises, “Never take anyone for granted who you meet in life. Leave a lasting impression, whether it’s 5 minutes or 20 minutes. Do a commercial on who you are and what you’re all about.” To the young generation he adds, “You are the generation of the distracted. Turn off your phone when you go to dinner and when you are with others.” If his players are on their phones during meal times, Pitinio will take it away for 24 hours. He says they consider that a worse punishment than running at 5 a.m. Pitinio concludes, “Don’t fall into the trap of technology. Technology is awesome, but there’s a time and place for it. When you are in the company of others company make them your focus.” Regarding communication he also offers this advice: Listen four times to the amount you speak. “Everybody loves listeners,” Pitino says and notes, “I’ve learned this the hard way in recruiting.” He shares the story of a young man he tried to recruit several years ago – going to his high school games over the course of two years. When it came time for the young man to sign, Pitino spent 45 minutes “preaching” to the student and his family about the university and his basketball program.

In retrospect, Pitino says, “I broke every rule of communication; I didn’t build a bond or relationship; I didn’t listen.” That student didn’t even come to visit the campus and didn’t sign.

URSELF x SURROUND YO OPLE WITH POSITIVE PE

Pitino moved on to another player and went in with a different approach – asking them questions, listening to their concerns. He was invited to stay for dinner; the family visited campus that weekend and the player signed with Pitino’s team within the week.

DAY x LIVE BY A ONECONTRACT E AND x KNOW THE TIM NOLOgY PLACE FOR TECH AN EFFECx LISTEN TO BE OR TIVE COMMUNICAT RSITY x LOOK AT ADVE D WITH HONESTY AN COURAgE

Pitino reiterates, “Listen and read the road signs. To master communication, listen four times to the amount you speak and you’ll know how to sell in different situations.” Lastly, Pitino reminds himself – and others, “Remember your passion.” He says, “Start each day on a one-day contract, wake up ultra-positive and pursue your dreams and goals.” He concludes, “When adversity crops up in your day, handle it by looking it straight in the eye. Don’t make excuses and point fingers at others, meet those challenges.” Coach Pitino shared his comments during the opening session of the 2013 National FFA Convention on Oct. 30 in Louisville.

MEDIAPREP 101 Mastering a few key techniques can help livestock enthusiasts share positive messages with the media.

T

By Kindra Gordon here’s a reporter roaming the aisles at the livestock show your attending, and they decide to stop and ask you some questions about your involvement in youth livestock shows. What should you do?

With increasing consumer interest – and concern – toward agriculture and where food comes from, an opportunity to share your story with the media is one you don’t want to miss. But it’s also one that you want to make sure puts a positive light on the industry and what you do. That’s why it is important to be prepared to be a spokesperson for your business and your industry, says Kathy Kerchner, an Arizona-based media and speaking expert. Kerchner is a former TV news anchor and reporter who has worked as a media/presentation coach for the past 20 years. She says the key to “mastering your message” is learning how to focus the interview on what you want to say, rather than what the reporter wants to ask. This begins long before you have a reporter in your face or on the phone asking questions. Kerchner’s advice is simple. “Plan your agenda,” she says and suggests writing out the key positive messages or “talking points” that you would want to emphasize about your business and industry in any interview. As you do this, she suggests anticipating the questions that a reporter will likely ask about your role in the industry, and then planning and preparing your answers. As well, consider the questions that might be more difficult to answer. “Where are you vulnerable?” questions Kerchner. Additionally, be prepared to supplement your comments with supporting information – such as real-life examples from your farm or ranch, research findings or third party endorsements.

More Media do’s & don’Ts

Media expert Kathy Kerchner offers these additional tips for a successful interview with a reporter: • Don’t repeat a reporter’s negative language, even to deny it. Instead, go right to a positive response. • Don’t offer an opinion speculating why something happened. “When you answer questions about what could have happened or what might happen, you risk tempting the reporter to turn your guesses into conclusions,” she says. • Don’t speak for others or criticize and blame others. These tactics usually backfire, says Kerchner. • Never say something “off the record.” To be safe, Kerchner says, “Don’t say anything to a reporter you don’t want to read in the paper, hear on the radio, or see on TV. Just because you think the interview is over doesn’t mean the reporter isn’t still taking mental notes.” • Do hold your ground. Kerchner says no matter how many times a reporter asks you the same question, continue to repeat your major points. • Do dress appropriately. If you are in an interview that will be broadcast on TV (or via the Internet) dress in solid colors and a simple outfit that will distract viewers. For print articles a photo is also often taken to run with the article, so be sure to be dressed professionally.


Take iT sTep-by-sTep

With Kerchner’s advice under your belt and some time devoted to preparing your talking points, let’s take it back to the reporter wanting to interview you – what should you do?

sTep 1 sTep 2 sTep 3 Kerchner suggests avoiding “cold calls” from reporters. Instead, she says buy yourself some time to prepare your thoughts – even if it’s just 5-10 minutes to prepare.

As the interview gets underway, Kerchner advises looking for opportunities to “bridge” from the questions being asked to the message you want to emphasize.

She suggests saying, “I’d like to be part of your story, but I’m in the middle of something right now. What’s your deadline? May we schedule a time to visit?” If you’re at the event, perhaps you can meet up with the reporter in 15 or 30 minutes. If the reporter is calling you after an event, visit about their timeline and schedule a time for a call-back interview.

She tells, “Those who are best at doing interviews have mastered the art of ‘bridging.’ Bridging helps you transition from the question you were asked to an answer that you want to give (your message) without making it seems as if you are avoiding the question.”

Prior to the interview you might also ask what medium will the story be broadcast in (TV, radio, print, podcast, blog)? What topics they want to focus on discussing? Who else have/will they talk to for the story? Who is the audience that will see the story? As a former reporter, Kerchner says, “You do want to get in on the story as early as possible so you can help shape the reporter’s thinking, but you are on the record the minute you start the interview, so you also want to be prepared.”

She describes this as a three-step process:

What if you don’t have the answer to a question? Kerchner says you should never say “no comment.” Rather, if you do not know how to respond to something, she suggests bridging back to your key message or admitting, “I am not the best person to answer that; it’s not my area of expertise. Let me have someone give you a call back.” Likewise, Kerchner says, “Don’t feel trapped into giving a yes or no answer if the reporter demands one. If you can’t answer, instead say, ‘The answer is not that simple and then bridge to one of your talking points.’”

1) Answer or acknowledge the reporter’s question as briefly as possible. 2) Then bridge. 3) To your positive messages with supporting information and examples. Useful bridge phrases include: but…; the real issue is…; you may also want to know…; let me put that in perspective…; however research shows…; here’s something equally important to consider….

addiTional advice

As you polish your media skills, Kerchner shares these additional tips for mastering the media and your message: Pause before you answer. This gives you a chance to think about what you want to say, and can make your response seem less rehearsed or “canned,” she says. Use empathy. “You can – and should – show genuine human emotion about death, injury and other losses. Just because you say you’re saddened, doesn’t mean you admit guilt or negligence,” says Kerchner. Clarify unclear questions. “Don’t answer a question you don’t understand,” says Kerchner. Either rephrase it yourself or ask for clarification. And, if you are doing a taped radio or TV interview, you can stop and ask the reporter to repeat the question. Keep cool. Never lose your temper or get defensive with a reporter – it won’t help your story. Add as much as you can. If a reporter concludes the interview by asking if you have anything to add, by all means do. Kerchner concludes, “Always take the opportunity to summarize or repeat key messages.

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

WINTER WORRIES

With the snow piling up this winter, so do the concerns with livestock. In past Insights, we have focused on nutrition primarily. That, along with signs of health issues, are what we feel to be the most important issues to take care of. Let’s face it, there is so much more though; especially when it comes to preparing for the show ring. Here are a few winter preparation tips that may help when it comes to winter weather and the show ring. One thing we like to cover with our families, is “keep blowing”. While we like to brush, brush, brush in the summer; we realize that getting a little combing or brushing in throughout the winter is tough, especially when beginning to dry from a wet state. However, we stress running the blower and working the comb with the blower for long periods of time. Our rule is when you think the calf is dry, keep blowing for another hour. This may sound extreme, but it can be a simple way to force yourself to get the animal thoroughly dry and get the proper hair work in. Too many times, we find families rushing through the time needed to properly dry a calf which can lead to hair working issues, as well as obvious health problems. Also, keep some rubbing alcohol handy; this will be helpful in treating the “ear ice sickles”. You may often find that that pesky ice buildup will accumulate on ones underline, ears, etc. While this is a pain, it can be more. As expected, this melts and causes damp chest floors or tips to ears which can once again, obviously create health issues. Use the alcohol in fogger or simply pour on a rag and rub in to melt the ice and allow you to finish properly drying the animal. A simple piece of common sense that I wish someone showed me earlier as a kid. Another piece of common sense product that you will need if showing in the winter is a bucket heater-trust me this is a necessity. It will be used for warming the temperature slightly for drinking water to warming cans to fit with. Your fitting crew will appreciate warming cans for use in this winter weather as it will greatly improve the performance of the spraying. Be careful to not get things to hot, a warm temperature will suffice nicely; too much heat can send cans bursting. This warm water technique will also be a great way to thaw sheen bottles or soap for washing. I hope these few common sense techniques will be of some use, especially for those that are new to the winter show circuit. Remember that nutrition and overall health are of utmost importance as we carry on throughout the winter. Reach out to your local Umbarger dealer for further advice.

WHEN YOU THINK YOUR CALF IS DRY.... KEEP BLOWING FOR ANOTHER HOUR.

GENERATION

Dealing with Ag ing Parents W hile Raising Kids Cour tesy of: Mat thew E. O’Donnell Vice President Morgan Stanley

226 March 2014 • theshowcircuit.com


A

re you “sandwiched” financially and emotionally between an aging parent and an adult child? According to a recent study, nearly half of Americans in their 40s and 50s have a parent aged 65 or older and are either raising a young child or financially supporting a grown child (age 18 or older).1 Among this group, 15% are providing financial support to both an aging parent and a child.

While the “Sandwich Generation” is a demographic trend that has been documented for some time, the financial implications associated with caring for multiple generations of family members has been escalating in recent years, with the bulk of the financial pressure coming from adult children as opposed to aging parents. More than a quarter of respondents (27%) provide primary financial support to their adult children, up from 20% in 2005. By contrast, just 21% of middle-aged adults report having provided financial support to an aging parent in the past year, a number that has not changed since 2005.1

• Search online for local support services. In addition to day care and health aids, many states and communities offer other services that can help both you and your parents cope. Look online under “elder,” “geriatric” or “senior” care services for support programs near you. • Encourage parents to update their estate plans and beneficiary designations. Even if they already have an estate plan in place, there is a good likelihood that it could be out of date and may not take into consideration life events that have transpired over the years, such as the birth of grandchildren, divorces, remarriages or other factors.

For dealing With your groWn children, consider the FolloWing. • First, talk to them about your financial realities. Live-at-home adult children may not be aware of what it costs to run a home while supporting aging parents at the same time. Letting them know the costs you face each month makes those costs real to them, and can encourage them to shoulder some of the responsibility themselves.

One explanation for the growing need for financial support among the nation’s young adults is the toll that the Great Recession has taken on this demographic group. According to U.S. government data, the percentage of young adults employed in 2010 was the lowest it had been since 1948.2

• Share the common costs. Most live-at-home adult children are there for a reason, often due to lack of a job or inability to afford a place of their own. But that does not mean they should not shoulder a portion of household expenses. Work out a realistic rent or cost-sharing arrangement and stick with it.

according to u.s. government data, the percentage oF young adults employed in 2010 Was the loWest it had been since 1948.

What can you do? If you are supporting both a parent and a grown child, there are a number of resources and support services you can turn to for help. For your parents, consider the following.

Despite the added financial resources being directed toward the young, the study found that, in general, the public places more value on supporting aging parents than on supporting grown children. Among all survey respondents, 75% said adults had a responsibility to provide financial assistance to an aging parent in need, while only 52% believed parents had the same responsibility to help out an adult child.1

maximum amount if you have an income of $15,000 or less, to a minimum of 20% of the maximum amount if your income exceeds $43,000.

• Enroll them in adult day care or hire a home health aide. Whether they live with you or on their own, you may need to consider helping them to manage medication, to conduct daily tasks such as bathing or meal preparation, and to make arrangements for assistance with household chores. A visiting nurse and home care agency may provide assistance in these areas. The average adult day-care program costs $70 per day, and a home health aide costs an average of $21 per hour.3 • Consider engaging a health care advocate. Professional health advocates or private health advisories can ease the burden associated with health care planning. In addition to facilitating and expediting care during major illnesses, private health advisories can also help you develop a comprehensive and customized health strategy based on your individual needs and personal health issues. • Investigate potential tax breaks. You may be able to contribute up to $5,000 per year to your employer’s dependent care flexible spending account, if available, provided your parents live with you more than half the year and you pay for them to attend an adult day-care program. If you don’t have a flex account, you may be able to claim the dependent-care credit on your tax return. The maximum amount of expenses to which the credit may be applied is $3,000 for one dependent or $6,000 for two. The applicable percentage of the maximum amount of expenses that you receive as the credit varies with your income, from a high of 35% of the

• Separate the individual costs. Is your live-athome son or daughter a finicky eater? Do they demand certain foods or sundries that you would not buy otherwise? Then let them pay for them. They’ll learn to appreciate what their tastes are actually costing, and avoid resentments on your part.

• Share the chores. Assigning chores and responsibilities may seem obvious, but often it’s overlooked, leaving mom and dad to do all the work. Garbage, lawn care, housework, laundry--make it clear to all who is responsible for what task.

• Don’t make it too comfortable. If your goal is to eventually nudge your fledglings out of the nest, you need to provide incentive. That means not treating them as permanent guests, but as temporary live-at-home adult children, with obligations and responsibilities of their own. In the end, they will appreciate it as much as you.

eadership is defined as “the process in which an individual influences the group of individuals to attain a common goal”. In AJCA, our goal is that we are promoting the well being of the cattle business, to advance the education and cooperation of young people interested in cattle and the beef industry, and to discover possible beef-related career opportunities in all phases of the beef industry.

Feb. 22 - Imboden MarCH March - 1 Fayetteville March - 1 Fayetteville March - 2 Fayetteville March - 2 Fayetteville March - 8 Russellville March - 8 Russellville March - 8 Paragould March - 9 Paragould March - 15 Fayetteville March - 15 Fayetteville March - 16 Fayetteville

AJCA recently held elections of board members for the 2014-year. Our 2014 President is Coby Wilson. We are fortunate to have selected a very goal-oriented and hard-working board for the upcoming year. I feel confident that this board will try its hardest to meet our goals and make this show year a great one. We have added some new faces to the board this year along with several returning members that will continue to serve on our board. We also have Adult Advisors that are determined to make this association the best it can be. We are blessed with great parents and grandparents that serve in these positions. The Junior Board is under the direction of Michelle Rieff, State Director. There is no way possible that the board would be able to accomplish any of our goals without her guidance. She dedicates countless hours to make AJCA what it is today.

March - 16 Fayetteville

We had our annual board meeting and luncheon on January 4th at the Arkansas Cattlemen’s Association headquarters in Little Rock. Our board meeting was very informative and brought exciting additions that we look forward to putting into place this year. For example, we added a new social media committee to keep us more in tune with our members. Make sure you look for us on Facebook and Instagram. At this point, we have more than 50 sanctioned shows scheduled for this upcoming show season. Our first show is scheduled to take place the weekend of Valentine’s Day in Harrison. We are also working close with the Arkansas State Livestock Department’s management to make the Spring State Livestock Show better attended and an educational weekend. We really appreciate the hard work they put in for all junior livestock exhibitors. These are only a few of the exciting additions headed our way for this show season.

March - 30 Lonoke

I hope you are as excited as we are to see what this year will bring. Our slate of officers is as follows: Coby Wilson, President; Blaire Wildy, President-Elect; Sarah Caldwell, Secretary; Kylie Sigmon, Treasurer; Area Vice Presidents: Will Clark, Wyatt Mosher, Garrett Beggs, Austin Cook, Ryann Grubbs, Blaine Wildy, Daniel Lackie, Allyson Morrison, and Chase King. Committee Chairmen: James Daniel Brown and Mackenzie Morrison. As you can see, the future of AJCA and the leadership within the cattle industry in Arkansas is bright.

THE SHOW CIRCUIT OUTDOORS

Some Sportsmen Groups Hide Big Green Agendas

I

f you pay attention to activists groups that spew anti-agriculture propaganda and hide under the guise of seemingly innocent/legitimate names like “Physicians Committee for the Responsible Medicine,” then you may have already heard of an organization named The Center for Consumer Freedom. CCF keeps track of individuals and groups with radical activist agendas and, more importantly, monitors their sources of funding and how their money spent.

In early February, CCF released the following report on the true nature of some groups that may sound like they support hunting and outdoors activities but are actually lobbying to do away with guns, hunting and associated activities:

“We recently took note of a new set of agenda-obscuring activist groups: “Sportsmen” organizations that are funded by anti-energy and anti-development green radicals. “We call these groups the “Green Decoys,” and we’re debuting GreenDecoys.com to help expose their true agendas. As our Senior Research Analyst writes in the Tampa Tribune: “Many of these organizations started out furthering an agenda that ensured hunters and anglers could continue their favorite pastime for generations to come. But more recently, many of these groups have been co-opted by wealthy grant-making bodies notorious for their support of anti-gun, radical environmentalist agendas, all the while purporting to represent the hunting and fishing community.”

U.S. HUnterS Set new record-Low HarveSt rate of YearLing BUckS

M

ore 1.5-year-old bucks (yearlings) are getting a pass from deer hunters than at any time in modern history, according to data gathered by Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) for its 2014 Whitetail Report, now available free online.

In the 2012-13 season, the most recent season with complete deer harvest data available from all states, only 37% of antlered bucks killed by hunters in the United States were yearlings, down from more than 62% in 1988, the year QDMA was founded. Antlered bucks do not include “button bucks,” so this means that nearly two-thirds of antlered bucks killed by hunters in 2012-13 were 2.5 years or older.

“The trend is clear, more deer hunters are choosing the benefits that come from protecting yearling bucks and building numbers of older bucks in a deer population,” said Kip Adams, a wildlife biologist and QDMA’s Director of Education & Outreach, who compiles the annual Whitetail Report. “The decline in yearling-buck harvest has been more rapid in some states than others, and hunters in a handful of states still take high percentages of yearling bucks, but even in most of those states the trend is in the right direction.” When most yearling bucks are protected and survive to adulthood, hunters witness more rut behaviors, get more responses with rattling and grunt calls, see more scrapes and rubs, find more shed antlers, and see and kill mature bucks more frequently. “Deer hunting is just more fun and exciting when you protect most yearling bucks,” said Adams. “QDMA doesn’t recommend protecting every yearling buck, in fact we fully support and encourage youth and new hunters having the opportunity to harvest them if they choose. QDMA simply recommends protecting the majority of yearling bucks. We want hunters to know the benefits of having a more natural age structure and to realize how their hunting can improve when they graduate from taking yearling bucks.” Voluntary restraint by hunters plays a significant role in reducing harvest rates among yearling bucks. QDMA found that among the five states with the lowest yearling-buck harvest rates, two of them, Kansas (14%) and Oklahoma (15%), do not have any mandatory antler restrictions at the state or regional level. Additionally, the national rate has been declining in recent years even without any new states adding statewide antler-based harvest restrictions. “Though we recognize state-mandated antler restrictions are wanted and needed in some situations, we have always said we prefer this choice to be voluntary among hunters who want the benefits of an older buck age structure,” said Adams. QDMA’s full report includes state-by-state yearling buck harvest rates, states with the most rapid drop in recent seasons, states with the

highest percentage of mature bucks (3.5 and older) in their harvest, and more. Additionally, the report takes a look at trends in deer harvest by weapon type, deer tagging and reporting requirements by state, impacts of the 2012 hemorrhagic disease outbreak, public input in deer management by state, and many other topics.

InCREaSED HUnTER aPPROval RaTIng

Among many fascinating statistic in the report include a welcome increase in the public’s perception of hunting. According to a recent nationwide survey, 79% of Americans approve of hunting – a 5% increase from 2011 and the highest level since 1995. The survey showed 52% of American strongly approve of legal hunting; 27% moderately approve; 8% neither approve or disapprove; 12% either moderately or strongly disapprove and 1% don’t know. The QDMA report asserts, “The increase in acceptance may, in fact, be linked to results from the most recent (2011) National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which shows hunting participation increase 18% since 2009. Other studies…show the strongest correlation with the approval of hunting is when the person asked actually knows a hunter.” For more information, download the report at www.qdma.com/corporate/whitetail-report.

Corn Ethanol Are Still Economical Feedstuffs For Beef Cows

I

n this issue, I will share the results of the last beef cow nutrition study we conducted at Illinois State University before I retired. In that study, we fed beef cows from late gestation through weaning, one of four corn silage based diets providing 12% crude protein containing either reduced-fat, modified wet corn distillers grains (RFDGS), high-fat modified wet corn distillers grains (DGS), high fat condensed corn distillers solubles (HFCDS), or shelled corn and soybean meal (CNT). Several interesting facts regarding the nutrient content of the diets were noted. The dry matter content was highest for the control corn and soybean meal diet compared to the other diets. The neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and acid detergent fiber (ADF) contents were lowest for the HFCDS diet. The dietary crude fat concentration was lower for the control diet compared to the by-product diets in the following order CNT < RFDGS < HFDGS < HFCDS comparing 2.50% to 4.01%, 6.37% and 7.02% respectively. Sulfur concentration was different between the diets but posed no, to little health risk, maintaining a dietary concentration well below the maximum NRC recommended 0.40%. In order to maintain a 2.0:1 calcium:phosphorous ratio, the by-product diets, because of the higher phosphorous content of the by-products, required greater limestone supplementation than the corn–soybean meal diet. Cows consuming the HFCDS diet produced more milk per day than cows consuming RFDGS and HFDGS diets. Milk production of the cows fed the DGS diets were similar to the milk production of the cows fed the corn and soybean meal CNT diet. However, because the calves were creep fed, no dif-

ferences in calf weaning weights were observed, regardless of which diet the cows received and no differences in creep feed consumption between the calves were noted. In addition, similar cow body weight and body condition score changes were recorded. While no significant differences in calf birth weight between dietary treatments were observed, calves out of cows consuming the HFDGS diet tended to have lighter birth weights. This tendency for lighter birth weights may have been due to the significantly lower daily dry matter intakes of the cows consuming the HFDGS diet compared to the cows consuming the other diets. Cows fed the HFDGS diet consumed 19.1 lbs of dry matter: day compared to 22.3, 21.7 ad 22.2 lbs : day for CNT, RFDGS, and HFCDS fed cows. The cost per day to feed the cows is shown in table 1. As has always been true, regardless of whether shelled corn and soybean meal prices are relatively higher or lower, feeding corn ethanol by-products results in lower feeding costs.

Cows

consuming the HFCDS diet produced more milk per day than

Cows consuming RFDGS and HFDGS diets.

Regarding feed costs, hay based diets generally cost more to feed than corn silage based diets. Diets supplemented with CDS are always the least cost diets. The primary reason HFCDS costs less to feed is its lower cost per unit weight compared to RFDGS and HFDGS. Ethanol plants currently do not make a price differentiation between reduced-fat DGS and high-fat DGS. In this study HFDGS resulted in lower feed costs than RFDGS because the cows required less HFDGS than RFDGS to maintain similiar cow body weight and body condition score changes. This should be expected because the higher fat content of HFDGS translates into higher energy density for the HFDGS diet compared to the RFDGS diet. Going forward, those producers who are able to utilize lower cost, alternative feeds will be the low cost producers who make a profit. Those of us who continue to feed traditional diets will either be LIFE STYLE farmers with an expensive hobby or will get out of the business due to lack of profits. Using corn ethanol by-products is one way to keep-the-glass-half-full.
