Our deepest sympathy to the Bedwell Family. The loss of Jared and Justin will profoundly affect the show industry. They will be missed.


SULLIVAN’S

Handy Can Sprayer

• Great for the showman with smaller hands that struggles to grip and spray the can while grooming. • For anyone who desires less fingers fatigue. • Features the exclusive full length designed FullGrip™ Trigger that makes it eight times easier to spray. Better grip leverage for any hand size. • More gentle on the fingers and hands without giving up the control of the spray. • Easily snaps onto can; easy off. We searched and searched to find the quality and durability our customers deserve. The Handy Can Sprayer™ is made in the USA and designed with a hug grip that stays perfectly attached to the can. • Many uses: adhesives, touch-ups, Hocus Pocus.

Aerosol Trigger

SULLIVAN’S

Tail Bag

Protection for your precious tail hair!

• A Daily Hair Care Must! Use the Tail Bag every time you operate your Roto Brush. Protects the tail from being caught in the Roto Brush and pulling out valuable hair. Safety! • Show Day Grooming - great while grooming legs to prevent matting of tail hair caused by the over-spray of adhesives & touch-ups. Surprisingly, the weight of the tail bag essentially eliminates tail switching. • Easy on - easy off. Cinches tight on tail with a draw string and stays tight with a barrel lock. To remove, simply press button on barrel lock to release. • Constructed of stretch spandex material that conforms to the size of almost any tail. Features elastic banding on the inside to minimize slipping.

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.

Thank you is something that cannot be said enough. Thank you to everyone in the cattle industry that has loved and supported our family throughout this time of tremendous loss and grief. As we have learned throughout the past four months whenever something such as this occurs in the cattle business we are reminded of how grateful we are to have been born into this industry. As cattle men and women we stay involved throughout our lifetimes because of the caliber of people that we become privileged to know and call our closest friends. From all the phone calls, cards and hugs, to the thousands of dollars that have been raised in honor of our boys, thank you is all that we can say. The amount of love that our family has received throughout this time has touched our hearts in ways that we cannot even begin to express. As we’ve said many times in recent months, we always knew how much we loved the boys and how they changed our lives, but what hadn’t occurred to us was how much everyone else loved Jared and Justin and how many lives those boys impacted in such a short amount of time. The past few weeks many thousands of dollars have been raised through auctions, donations and various other fundraisers… and still counting that will help us to not only honor the wonderful young men that they had become but to help other young people to achieve their dreams that are so similar to those of Jared and Justin’s. The overwhelming support that has been provided by this industry has humbled us, yet challenged us to look forward to turning something that is so negative in our lives into something positive for others in the future. Currently, we have established a scholarship that will be designed by us, the Bedwell Family, and administrated through the American Shorthorn Foundation in honor of Jared and Justin Bedwell. Please know that in addition to the Shorthorn Scholarship, we are moving forward through the Progressive Spirit foundation in Fairview, Ok to determine where memorial funds may be used to assist youth involved in agriculture. We have full appreciation of the responsibility that we have to not only honor our boys but to help give a positive outlook on agriculture and aid the youth of today for whatever they wish to do in the future and we are grateful for the memorials that have given us the opportunity to do so. There will always be a hole in our hearts that the loss of Jared and Justin has left us, however with the love and support of this industry, our friends, and our extended family that hole that felt so tremendous is beginning to heal. Without the help that our family has received from everyone, there is no way that we would’ve been able to endure these tragedies alone. As we stated earlier thank you is something that cannot be said enough. We welcome your continued prayers, love, and hugs. Sincerely,

Jeff, Diane and Jennifer Bedwell

Business Minded

Four Tips for Tax-Savvy Investors A century ago, author Mark Twain wrote that the difference between a taxidermist and a tax collector is that the taxidermist only takes your skin. Today, the IRS isn’t any more popular. Why not see if any of the following strategies could allow you to keep more of what your investments earn? 1. Look into tax-managed mutual funds. Portfolio managers of tax-managed funds can use a number of strategies to help reduce the tax bite shareholders suffer. For example, they may strive to keep portfolio turnover low to help minimize taxable gains, or they may actively use losses to offset taxable gains.

2. Consider municipal bonds and bond funds. Because the interest on a municipal bond is usually exempt from federal taxes, and sometimes state and local taxes, it may actually produce a better yield than a taxable bond with a comparable interest rate. The higher your income tax bracket, the more you may benefit from owning “munis.”1 3. Contribute to tax-advantaged retirement vehicles. You can now contribute up to $5,500 annually to an IRA plus an additional $1,000 per year if you’re over age 50 (for the 2012 tax year). Traditional IRAs offer tax deferral -- you pay no taxes until withdrawal -- and may provide tax deductions. Roth IRAs offer tax deferral and qualified withdrawals are tax free, but no tax deductions.2 4. Use gains -- and losses -- to your advantage. If you have an investment and hold it for at least one year before selling, you’ll pay a maximum federal tax of 15% on capital gains. The same rate applies for dividend income.3 Keep it for less than one year and

you’ll pay regular income taxes -- up to 35%. Also keep in mind that if you intend to sell investments that have lost money, you can do so by December 31 and deduct up to $3,000 in investment losses from that year’s tax return. Additional losses can be carried over and used to offset future capital gains. There are other tax strategies you can use, but be sure to consult your tax professional and investment professional before acting. For More Information Matthew E. O’Donnell is a Financial Advisor located in Chicago, IL and may be reached at (312) 917-7464 or http://fa.smithbarney.com/matthew_odonnell. Footnotes/Disclaimers 1 Income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Capital gains, if any, are subject to taxes. 2 Withdrawals before age 59½ are subject to a penalty tax. Each type of IRA has respective income limits as well as deductibility rules. 3 Lower rates apply for long-term capital gains and dividends for taxpayers who are in lower tax brackets.

Tips for a Successful ET & IVF Program Can IVF Embryos Be Frozen?

Embryo Transfer (ET) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) are tools that many breeders have utilized to multiply the genetics of their elite females and to increase breeding and marketing opportunities in their program. With breeding season approaching, now is the time that breeders should think ahead and consider the management decisions that support an effective ET and IVF program. “Breeders play an important role in the success of their donors in ET and IVF,” says Dr. Jon Schmidt, director of professional services at Trans Ova Genetics. Dr. Schmidt offers a few tips for breeders that can help them build a successful breeding program utilizing advanced reproductive technologies. Provide proper nutrition

Sound nutrition helps donors and recipients succeed in an ET and IVF program. Donors should be fed to maintain or gain body condition. Cows with a body condition score of 4 – 6 on a level plane of nutrition will provide the best results. Make sure rations are balanced for all major nutrients and are without vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Beware, however, of rations too high in protein as that may have a negative effect on flush and aspiration results. Cattle in comfortable, low-stress environments tend to achieve optimal results.

Don’t underestimate the importance of semen in ET

Healthy cattle are a must

Many breeders use very special bulls on their elite donor cows. As a bull’s semen becomes more rare and/or expensive, the number of units used may have to be decreased. In ET, a donor may be bred with one or two units at twelve hours if the semen is expensive but of excellent quality. “In vitro fertilization can be a better way to maximize results with rare, expensive or sexed semen,” Dr. Schmidt advises. One unit of semen can be used to fertilize oocytes from multiple donors, which can be a very efficient way to utilize rare genetics. In vitro fertilization also allows a breeder to use sexed semen very effectively. With the ability to use either pre- sorted frozen semen or conventional semen that is sorted after it is thawed (reverse-sort) by Trans Ova Genetics, nearly all bulls are able to have sexed semen used in IVF for embryo production. With all the variables that are part of utilizing ET and IVF, breeders are wise to work with a trusted, experienced practitioner in order to achieve the best results for their herd. Consistency and discipline within a breeding program will prove to be beneficial during the long run.

Before a donor begins ET or IVF work, breeders should ensure the donor is healthy and up-to-date on vaccines. Donors should not be treated with antibiotics during a set-up process, and modified-live vaccines should not be given within 30 days, as it may inhibit reproductive performance. Plan ahead

Successful ET and IVF programs do not just happen; they are carefully planned and executed. Consult with your ET or IVF practitioner a few months in advance, as practitioners consider many factors when scheduling a donor. Factors such as age, breed, weight, body condition, date of last calving and previous reproductive history are all considered. “If a donor has been flushed before, we take her previous flush stimulation and results into consideration when prescribing future schedules,” says Dr. Schmidt.

Semen is a crucial part of a successful ET program. “In a perfect world, three to four units of excellent quality semen would be used following a superovulation schedule,” says Dr. Schmidt. “Ideally, we would use one at the start of standing heat; one or two units would be used 12 hours after the start of standing heat; and then one more unit would be used 24 hours after the start of standing heat.” Rare or expensive semen? Consider IVF

Utilizing alternating feedstuffs sometimes requires more management expertise than feeding what some people refer to as “John Deere” diets (No. 2 yellow shelled corn and green alfalfa/grass hay).

flow of urine in the urethra causing it to rupture resulting in “water belly” or urine in the peritoneal cavity and ultimately death. Urinary calculi usually occurs in feedlot steers near the end of the finishing period (such as in a 1,250-pound steer that will be ready for harvest in 30 days).

Solution: Be sure to include a calcium premix that will balance the calcium: phosphorous ratio between 1.2:1 and 2:1. This premix can consist of limestone (calcium carbonate) or a feed company’s mineral premix designed for distillers grains diets. If you are already including extra calcium in the TMR, check the uniformity of the TMR mixture. If the TMR is not uniformly mixed, one or two steers in a lot may not receive enough of the mineral premix. It is not really a TMR if it was not uniformly mixed. Another option, if chemical (laboratory) analyses of TMR grab samples are uniform in nutrient concentration, is to increase the dietary salt to 2% of the dry matter. Increased salt intake will cause cattle to drink more water, making more urine that will help flush phosphatic calculi out of the bladder while the urinary stones are small enough to pass through the urethra without damage. If we suspect a urinary calculi problem at ISU, we add 0.5% ammonium chloride (dry matter basis) to the TMR to acidify the urine and keep potential stones dissolved. If you have a smaller size feedlot and top dress trace premixes instead feeding a TMR, the same procedures can be used, but top dressing is usually not as effective as feeding a TMR because intake among steers is not as uniform when feeds are top dressed. Urinary calculi is a gender problem as heifers generally do not suffer from urinary stones – it’s an anatomy difference.

The Candy Booth -- $10 for a pound of fudge that you shouldn’t be eating anyway. But it’s for the kids, right?

no.

8

The “Official” Stock Show Hoodie -- $40 for a logo and a little sparkle. Could be worse things to blow your money on.

no.

7

The Ringside Bar -- $5 beer buys a lot of “wisdom” about what’s going on with the judge, and it’s just so conveniently located.

no.

6

The Pony -- For only $15 your child can sit on a tired old pony for a picture with a cowboy hat and bandanna to borrow as well. Avoid taking toddlers within seeing distance of this booth, because the real “cost” is pulling them – screaming – off the pony when their time is up!

no.

5

The Junk Booth -- located as conveniently as the beer booth but aimed at little ones with every kind of blinking, whirling, noise-making toy that China can produce for as little as $5. Breaks before you get to the truck with it. Every time.

no.

4

no.

3

no.

2

The Baby Goats -- For $12, your child can sit on a bale of straw and get their clothes nibbled on, their hair pulled and come away with the distinct smell of goat and a picture. For only $24 you can get that picture in a souvenir frame. An evil genius thought of this one (wish it had been me, the line is always long).

no.

The World’s Biggest Cinnamon Roll – prices depend on whether you want to add frosting, nuts or an insulin shot. However, we all know it doesn’t matter how much it costs, because they are so good you want one every morning after you get through blowing and feeding. I’m sure making the tie-outs burns most of the 8,000 calories these babies have, too. Right? Right??

Problem 3: You’re including CDS or another liquid feed product into the TMR and the mixture is seldom uniform. Solution: The rule of thumb is to add liquid feedstuffs to a TMR as the last ingredient. This procedure works well if the liquid component represents 10% to 15% of the diet, or 40% or more of the diet. However, if the liquid feedstuff is 20%-25% of diet dry matter, adding the liquid last results in “balling” of the TMR and non-uniform mixes. My suggestion is to add about one half of the liquid after 1/3 to ½ of the other primary ingredients have been included and then add the rest of the liquid as the last ingredient. This is one area where on-farm trial and error regarding mixing procedure may work best. Remember, keep the cup half-full. It is a great time to be in the cattle business. The number of cattle is down, alternative feeds can make diets less expensive and cattle prices are going higher. As I tell my students, feeding cattle is easy if you buy low, sell high and feed cheap! Easier said than done. Glass half-full.

The Carnival -- $3 for 1 throw at a basketball hoop. This game should be called “Sucker Ball.”

no.

The Miracle Cure Booth -- every exhibit hall in America has at least one of these where you can get everything that ails you fixed with a little magic lotion or pill, all for the low, low price of $19.95. And that is a Stock Show Special; the only time you can get this low, low price. Until you see them at the next show, that is. The Snake Girl Tent -- Only 3 tickets gives you a once-in-alifetime opportunity to see a living, breathing snake girl with no arms, legs or heartbeat but plenty of scales and a forked tongue. I almost had to do this just to see how pitiful it was. But then the Monkey Maze distracted me….

Are You an

AverAge Hunter?

By Kip Adams Director of Education and Outreach, Quality Deer Management Association For you older hunters, Webster’s defines average as: “A typical or cent of hunters spent in this category, and I was way “above average” usual level, degree or kind.” For you younger hunters, Wikipedia defines here. Expanded archery seasons and crossbow use both contributed to average as: “A measure of the middle or typical value of a data set.” So, as this category’s seat in the Top 10. In fact, more than 50 percent of the total deer harvest in New Jersey in 2011 was by archers. you read this, would you consider yourself an average hunter? Many would be offended if considered average, especially with reHunting Dogs and Associated Costs: The average hunter spent $70 spect to our prowess at chasing and tagging whitetails - myself included, for a total of over $951 million. Only 7 percent of hunters spent here, as I dedicate a tremendous amount of time during the year to learning and the average per spender was $945. Hunting dogs aren’t cheap, but more about this amazing creature in order to put myself in better viewing good ones are certainly worth the expense. and shooting positions. My use of “average” in this case though pertains more to hunting expenditures than success in the field. Every five years, Licenses, Stamps, Tags and Permits: The average hunter spent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducts a national survey of fishing, $72 for a total of over $986 million. How much does the average hunting and wildlife-associated recreation. The most current survey was anti-hunter spend for wildlife conservation? Far less than the average in 2011, and the results are just now available. The following information hunter, and be sure to remind them of that at every opportunity. Seventy-five percent of all hunters contributed to this category. The remaining is from that survey. In 2011, the average hunter spent $2,484 on all things hunting re- hunters are exempt due to age, landowner status, etc. In Pennsylvania, lated. Nearly $2,500 is a substantial sum, and one that may make even I purchase a hunting license, archery stamp, muzzleloader stamp, bear the most understanding significant-other roll their eyes. Let’s break that license, furtaker license, bobcat permit, migratory bird stamp, duck down into the Top 10 items we spent money on, and you can determine stamp, antlerless deer license, and two-to-four DMAP permits for a total of $140 to $160. It looks a little pricey on paper, but the opportunities it for yourself how “average” you are. provides are worth at least 10 times the cost. Private Land Use Fees: The average hunter spent $55 on this Also, I process my own deer and get approximately 25 meals (for my item in 2011 for a total of $755 million. However, only 9 percent family of four) from each animal. The same amount of meat for 25 meals of hunters actually spent money on this category, and those few spent from the grocery store costs more than my total Pennsylvania license an average of $633 each. These were not lease fees as that is a separate purchase. So, the venison from one deer covers my licenses, and I still category. have two-to-four deer tags, a bear tag, etc. left.

Ammunition: The average hunter spent $95 for a total of nearly $1.3 billion. Amazingly, only 65 percent of hunters spent money on ammunition in 2011. I guess the rest were stocked up from 2010, or they have some really giving friends.

Firearms: The average hunter spent $223 for a total of over $3 billion. Twenty-two percent of hunters spent in this category for an average of $1,015 each. This category included rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders and handguns. Note: you can win a firearm at a QDMA Branch event for far less than $1,015 – support your local Branch!

4

Food (for hunting trips): The average hunter spent $235 for a total of more than $3.2 billion. Equal to the license category, 75 percent of hunters spent in this category. Interestingly, food and lodging are often discussed together as hunting expenditures, but lodging expenses were only a fraction of food’s. The average hunter only spent $49 on lodging in 2011.

3

Special Equipment: This is a big category, as it included boats, campers, cabins, ATVs, pickups and more. The average hunter spent $321 in this category for a total of nearly $4.4 billion. However, only 4 percent of hunters spent here for a spender average of $7,159!

2

Transportation: The average hunter spent $349 on transportation for a total of over $4.7 billion. Eighty percent of hunters spent in this category making it the most popularly purchased item. This total included both public and private transportation. Drum roll please... Land Leasing and Ownership: The average hunter spent $540 for a total of nearly $7.4 billion. This was by far the top category, as it was 57 percent higher than the second item. The survey did not separate leasing and land purchasing, but another U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey showed just under 7 percent of hunters leased land in the U.S. in 2006. That same survey showed 1.3 million hunters owned over 134 million acres, and over a decade ago (2001) the number of hunters owning land exceeded the number leasing land. How do QDMA members fit in this? Many feel all QDMA members are large landowners. In reality, a full third of our members (33 percent) do not own any land, and over half of our members hunt (not own) on less than 500 acres. Two other items of particular interest that just missed the top 10 are Plantings (No. 11) and Taxidermy/Processing Costs (tied Lodging at No. 12). I certainly contribute more than my share to these categories (and my taxidermy bills are at cost). Notably, the Plantings category was not even listed in the 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and WildlifeAssociated Recreation. It is amazing that in the past five years, the average hunter went from spending less than $2 (the smallest category in the 2006 survey) to $51 on plantings for a total of over $702 million. No wonder there are so many food plot blends and products available today. This is an increase of over 2,400 percent! Back to the original question, “Are you an average hunter?” I spent more than the average hunter on 6 categories (numbers 1,2,4,7,8 and 9) and less on 4 categories (numbers 3,5,6 and 10). However, simply by being a QDMA member and reading Quality Whitetails, you’re clearly above average with regard to your knowledge about deer, their habitat, and the importance of ensuring our hunting heritage. That’s where it really counts, so here’s to above average.

Sullivan ScholarShip DeaDline april 15

Deadline on applications for the distinguished $20,000 Sullivan Supply/Stock Show University Scholarship is April 15, 2013. Candidates must be a graduating high school senior or college student 21 years of age or younger and a US or Canadian resident. Please visit www.sullivansupply.com for an application and more information on this program. Show for Special neeDS KiDS A very special livestock show was held for 21 special needs students from Stillwater High School in Oklahoma recently. Hosted by Oklahoma State University’s Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, the students were each given a chance to show a sheep, goat or pig. They were assisted in the ring by members of the fraternity. “We chose to do this for children with special needs because they typically do not have the opportunity to participate in this kind of event that many other children enjoy and have sometimes been overlooked,” said Clark Bixler, chairman of the fraternity’s Winter Bonanza show, which was held in conjunction with the Heart of a Champion Show. “You could see the excitement in the children from the smiles on their faces as they were showing these animals. It was obvious how truly special this event was for these kids… it was also special for all members of the fraternity to be part of this event.” Each participant received “e n o r m o u s blue ribbons, T-Shirts and hugs” as they left the ring.

This column is part of a series exploring careers that our young readers might be interested in pursuing, through the eyes and experiences of successful people in a variety of professions.

Wes Ishmael

an agricultural Writer

SC: What is your background – were you raised on a farm or ranch? I was raised on a small, diversified farm that never represented much annual income. Growing up, I also did day-work for larger operations in our area.

you make relatively little on each one, meaning you’ve got to do more and more volume to make a living out of it. With this electronic age, data is everywhere, too, meaning some folks don’t necessarily recognize the value differences in information.

SC: Would you describe for us what you really do? Everything I do goes back to communications within the beef cattle business. I write feature articles for several publications, aimed primarily at cow-calf producers and stocker operators. I write four different monthly columns (mostly dealing with cattle economics), write and broadcast a weekly cattle market report, write a daily cattle market e-mail newsletter. Along the way, I also work with various producer clients on their communication and promotions programs.

SC: Do you need a college degree in your profession? I was always told you had to have a degree. I’m thankful to have one, but I can honestly say I don’t think I wrote or communicated any better or worse because of that degree. Rather than a degree in technical journalism, I’d encourage anyone interested in writing/communicating in the cattle business to get one in ag economics, reproduction, some specialty that offers more latitude. If you’re inclined that way, the writing and communicating part of the job will take care of themselves.

SC: How did you get into this line of work? There wasn’t going to be an opportunity to return to the home place and join an existing operation. I had that background, though, and also liked to write. So, I thought maybe I could go to work for a cattle publication. I majored in technical journalism at Colorado State University, judged and focused more on animal science and ag economics at Northeastern Junior College. During my junior year, a fellow by the name of Dale Runnion and a partner of his were just starting a new Limousin publication. I had no way of knowing when Dale hired me as an intern that he was one of the deans of livestock publishing in this country. What an education I received, especially about publications and the purebred business. That internship turned into working there anytime I wasn’t in class. I hired on as editor when I graduated. Ultimately I also worked for Colorado Cattle Feeders Association and the North American Limousin Foundation. In 1997 or so, I started Clear Point Communications and have been doing that ever since.

SC: Where should somebody go to get started in your line of work? First off, I’m a big believer in 4-H and FFA. I’m sure there are other fine youth organizations, but those are the ones I was involved in and know about. There is so much opportunity to learn about different aspects of the business, to develop leadership skills, hone public speaking, develop critical thinking skills. So, I’d make sure I was taking advantage of those opportunities. Next, if you want to write, see if the local paper will let you string some stories. Look for opportunities to intern with breed associations, cattle organizations, ag publications, etc.

SC: What do you like about your job? Cattle and cattle people. That’s all I really know, so I don’t have much basis for comparison, but I like the inherent trust that exists. As for the cattle, the more you find out, the more you understand that you don’t yet know, so it never ceases to be fascinating. SC: What are the toughest challenges for what you do? Volume. Doing what I do on a project basis is a lot like trading calves—

SC: What is a typical day on the job like for you? If I’m on the road (typically 25-30% of my time) I’m attending industry meetings, interviewing folks for articles or occasionally providing presentations. In the office, I’m either on the phone or in front of the computer screen, chasing information, writing, etc. SC: What would most surprise a student about your career? That there is such a career, given the generational separation that exists between production agriculture and most folks today. SC: Anything you wish someone would have told you when you were in school? Don’t feel like you have to have it “all” figured out by a particular time of your college education or during life. Far as I can tell, it never is and never will be while we’re on this earth.

Spring Calving TipS

By Dr. Glenn Selk, OSU Emeritus Extension Animal Scientist

Will a Long, Difficult Delivery Affect Rebreeding? In addition to being the greatest cause of baby calf mortality, calving difficulty markedly reduces reproductive performance during the next breeding season. Cattle suffering from calving difficulty have been reported (Brinks, et al. 1973) to have pregnancy rates decreased by 14% and those that did become pregnant to calve 13 days later at the next calving. Results from a Montana study (Doornbos, et al., 1984) showed that heifers receiving assistance in early stage 2 of parturition returned to heat earlier in the post-calving period and had higher pregnancy rates than heifers receiving traditionally accepted obstetric assistance. In this study, heifers were either assisted about one hour after the fetal membranes (water bag) appeared (EARLY) or were assisted only if calving was not completed within two hours of the appearance of the water bag (LATE). Heifers that were allowed to endure a prolonged labor (LATE) had a 17% lower rate of cycling at the start of the next breeding season. In addition, the rebreeding percentage was 20% lower than the counterparts (EARLY) that were given assistance in the first hour of labor. First-calf heifers should deliver the calf in about one hour. The starting time is the first appearance of the water bag and ends with complete delivery of the calf. Mature cows, that have calved previously, should proceed much faster and should deliver the calf in about a half hour. Always check to be certain that cervical dilation has been completed, before you start to pull the calf. If you are uncertain about whether cervical dilation has taken place or if the calf is in a deliverable position, call your veterinarian immediately. Prolonged deliveries of baby calves (in excess of 1.5 or 2 hours) often result in weakened calves and reduced rebreeding performance in young cows!

Helping the Newborn Calf Breathe Despite our best efforts at bull selection and heifer development, cows or heifers occasionally need assistance at calving time. Every baby calf has a certain degree of respiratory acidosis. Acidosis is the result of the deprivation of oxygen and the accumulation of carbon dioxide that results from the passage of the calf through the birth canal. The excess of carbon dioxide results in a build-up of lactic acid (therefore the acidosis.) In order to correct the lack of oxygen and the excess of carbon dioxide and its by-products, the healthy calf will pant vigorously shortly after birth. Some calves, however, may be sluggish and slow to begin this corrective process. It is imperative that the newborn calf begins to breathe as soon as possible. To stimulate the initiation of the respiratory process, a few ideas may help. First, manually clear the mouth and nasal passages of fluids and mucus. Hanging the calf over a fence is NOT the best method to accomplish this task. The weight of the calf on the fence restricts the movement of the diaphragm muscle. The fence impairs the diaphragm’s ability to contract and move. This diaphragm activity is necessary to expand the lungs to draw in air and needed oxygen. A better method is to briskly tickle the inside of the nostrils of the calf with a straw. This will usually cause the calf to have a reflex action such as a “snort” or cough. The reflex cough or “snort” expands the lungs and allows air to enter. Expect the calf to pant rapidly for a few minutes after breathing is initiated. Panting is the natural response that increases oxygen intake and carbon dioxide release and will allow the calf to reach normal blood gas concentrations. Re-warming Methods for Cold-stressed Newborn Calves Last winter was one of the mildest winters in recent his-


tory…. Nonetheless, before the spring calving season is over, there is a chance that some calves will be born in very cold winter temperatures. Newborn calves that are not found for several hours after birth and have been exposed to extremely cold temperatures may become hypothermic or very cold stressed. Years ago, an Oklahoma rancher called to tell of the success he had noticed in using a warm water bath to revive new born calves that had been severely cold stressed. A quick check of the scientific data on that subject bears out his observation. Canadian animal scientists compared methods of reviving hypothermic or cold stressed baby calves. Heat production and rectal temperature were measured in 19 newborn calves during hypothermia (cold stress) and recovery when four different means of assistance were provided. Hypothermia of 86o F rectal temperature was induced by immersion in cold water. Calves were re-warmed in a 68oF to 77oF air environment where thermal assistance was provided by added thermal insulation or by supplemental heat from infrared lamps. Other calves were re-warmed by immersion in warm water (100o F), with or without a 40cc drench of 20% ethanol in water. Normal rectal temperatures before cold stress were 103o F. The time required to regain normal body temperature from a rectal temperature of 86oF was longer for calves with added insulation and those exposed to heat lamps than for the calves in the warm water and warm water plus ethanol treatments (90 and 92 minutes versus 59 and 63 minutes, respectively). During recovery, the calves re-warmed with the added insulation and heat lamps had to use up more body heat metabolically than the calves re-warmed in warm water. Total

heat production during recovery was nearly twice as great for the calves with added insulation, exposed to the heat lamps than for calves in warm water and in warm water plus an oral drench of ethanol, respectively. This body heat production leaves the calves with less energy to maintain body temperature when returned to the cold environment. By immersion of hypothermic calves in warm (100o F) water, normal body temperature was regained most rapidly and with minimal metabolic effort; no advantage was evident from oral administration of ethanol. When immersing these baby calves, do not forget to support the head above the water to avoid drowning the calf that you are trying to save. Also make certain that they have been thoroughly dried before returning to the cold weather and the mother. With today’s calf prices and high feed cost inputs, it is imperative to save as many calves as possible.

Calf SCourS Causes, Prevention and Treatment

Calf scours causes more financial losses to cow-calf producers than any other health problem in their herds. Calf scours is not a single disease; it is a clinical sign associated with several diseases characterized by diarrhea. Regardless of the cause, diarrhea prevents the absorption of fluids from the intestines; also, body fluids pass from the scouring calfs Calf scours is not a single body into the intestines. A calf is approximately disease; it is a clinical sign 70% water at birth. The scourassociated with several ing calf loses fluids and rapdiseases characterized by idly dehydrates. In addition, diarrhea. dehydration is associated with loss of essential body chemicals (electrolytes)-sodium and potassium-and the buildup of acid. The scouring calf becomes dehydrated and suffers from electrolyte loss and acidosis. Infectious agents cause the primary damage to the intestine, but death from scours usually results from dehydration, acidosis, and loss of electrolytes. The identification of infectious agents which cause scours, however, is essential for implementing effective preventive measures.

Causes of Calf sCours

The known causes of scours are grouped into two categories: (1) noninfectious causes, and (2) infectious causes.

220 March 2013 • theshowcircuit.com

The noninfectious causes are often referred to as “predisposing” or “contributing” factors. Whatever they are called, there is a dramatic interaction between noninfectious causes and infection. Any effort to prevent infectious causes is usually fruitless unless serious control of contributing (non-infectious) factors is part of the overall program.

NoNiNfeCtious Causes of Calf sCours

Noninfectious causes are best defined as flaws in management, which appear as nutritional shortcomings, inadequate environment, insufficient attention to the newborn calf, or a combination of these. The most commonly encountered noninfectious problems include: (a) Inadequate nutrition of the pregnant dam, particularly during the last third of gestation. Both the quality and quantity of colostrum are adversely affected by shortchanging the pregnant dam in energy and protein. Deficiencies in vitamins A and E have been associated with greater incidence of calf scours. (b) Inadequate environment for the newborn calf. Muddy lots, crowding, contaminated lots, calving heifers and cows together, wintering and calving in the same area, storms, heavy snow or rainfall, etc. are stressful to the newborn calf and may increase the chance for easy exposure to infectious agents. The wet and chilled newborn calf experiences a drainage of its body heat, may be severely stressed, and all


too often lacks the vigor to nurse sufficient colostrum early in life. (c) Insufficient attention to the newborn calf, particularly during difficult birth or adverse weather conditions. The calf is born without scours-fighting antibodies. The calf will acquire these antibodies only by nursing colostrum early in life. Any effort to prevent scours by vaccinating cows is wasted unless the calf nurses colostrum, preferably before it is two to four hours old. As the calf grows older, it loses its ability to absorb colostral antibodies by the hour. Colostrum given to calves 24-36 hours old is practically useless; antibodies are seldom absorbed this late in life.

iNfeCtious Causes of Calf sCours

Infectious causes of calf scours may be grouped as follows:

BactErial causEs Escherichia Coli Salmonella spp. Clostridium perfringens and other bacteria

Protozoan ParasitEs

viral causEs Rotavirus Coronavirus BVD virus IBR virus

YEasts & molds

Cryptosporidium Coccidia Some pathogens may be more predominant than others in a given area. It appears that cryptosporidum is more common than previously thought. Single infectious are common, but mixed infections (eg: E. Coli + cryptosporidium or coronavirus + salmonella, etc.) are often reported.

BaCterial Causes of Calf sCours

EschErichia coli (E coli)

E. coli appears to be the single most important cause of bacterial scours in calves. There are numerous kinds of E. coli. Recent research indicates that the majority of E. coli strains able to cause diarrhea first colonize (or adhere) to the calf ’s gut. They do so by means of very fine, fuzz-like protrusions known as “pili” or limbriae. These pili are designated as the K99 antigen. E. coli strains which possess the K99 antigen are called enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC). Enterotoxrgenic means ability to produce toxins in the intestines. Obviously, there are exceptions to any rule: some ETEC have a different type of pili known as the K88 antigen. Some other features of scour-causing E. coli are known as “capsular antigens,” but it would appear that the K99 (pilus) antigen is the most common characteristic of ETEC. Most newborn calves have a chance to pick up E. Coli scours infections from the environment, particularly when sanitation is marginal. Severe outbreaks of E. coli may affect calves as young as 16 to 24 hours. The younger the calves, the greater the chance for death from progressive, severe dehydration.

salmonElla

Salmonella produces a potent toxin or an endotoxin (poison) within its own cells. Animals may be more severely depressed fol-

lowing treatment with antibiotics because treatment causes the Salmonella cells to release the endotoxin, producing shock. Therefore, treatment should be designed to combat endotoxic shock. Calves are usually affected at six days of age or older. The source of Salmonella infection in a herd can be from mother cattle, birds, cats, rodents, water supply or human carriers. Clinical signs associated with Salmonella infection include diarrhea, blood and fiber in the feces, depression, and elevated temperature. The disease is more severe in young or debilitated calves. Finding a membrane-like coating in the intestine or necropsy is strong evidence that Salmonella might be involved.

clostridium PErfringEns

Clostridium perfringens infections are commonly known as enterotoxemia. Enterotoxemia is fatal and caused by toxins released by various types of C. perfringens . Types B, C, and D have been reported. The disease has a sudden onset. Affected calves become listless, display uneasiness, strain or kick at their abdomen. Bloody diarrhea may or may not occur. This is usually associated with a change in weather, change in feed of the cows, or management practices that cause the calf to not nurse for a longer period of time than usual. The hungry calf may over-consume milk, which establishes a media in the gut conducive to growth and production of toxins by Clostridial organisms. In many cases, calves may die without any signs being observed.

Viral Causes of Calf sCours

coronavirus and rotavirus

Little was known about the role played by these two viruses prior to 1970, when researchers at the University of Nebraska published their findings. Today, many diagnostic laboratories are using technology pioneered in Nebraska, and the importance of these viruses in outbreaks of calf scours have been confirmed. Both of these viruses possess the ability to disrupt the cells that line the small intestine with resulting diarrhea and dehydration. Coronavirus also damages the cells in the intestinal crypts and slows down the healing process in the intestinal lining. Furthermore, the damage caused by either corona or rotavirus is often compounded by bacterial infections and the risk for fatal diarrhea is increased when mixed infections occur. The rotavirus was originally known as reovirus, or reolike virus, but the correct name, as used today, is rotavirus. Calves as young as one or two days old may scour from corona or rotavirus infection; however, most outbreaks seem to occur when calves are near a week of age and older. The morbidity (number of sick calves) ranges from 1%-2% up to 20%-30%. Mortality rates are quite variable. Many calves will recover if treated early. Conversely, up to 25% losses have been reported, particularly when bacteria compounded either corona or rotavirus infections. Death losses were consistently associated with pronounced dehydration.

BovinE virus diarrhEa (Bvd) virus

Exposure to the BVD virus can cause diarrhea and death in young calves. Diarrhea begins about 26 hours to three days after exposure and may persist for quite a long time. Erosions and ulMarch 2013 • theshowcircuit.com

cers on the tongue, lips and in the mouth are the usual lesions found in the live calf. These lesions are similar to those found in yearling and adult animals affected with BVD virus. The IBR (â&#x20AC;&#x153;red noseâ&#x20AC;?) virus causes mainly respiratory disease, abortions, vaginitis and conjunctivitis. There are, however, reports associating the IBR virus with digestive disorders in young calves. Affected calves had erosions and ulcers in the esophagus and complicated by dullness, loss of weight, scours and death.

When the calf does get up to nurse, it is overly hungry and the cow has more milk than normal, so the calf may overload, resulting in a nutritional scours. This is usually a white scours caused by undigested milk passing through the intestinal tract. This type of scours usually presents little problem in treatment. Many of these calves, if they are still active and alert, do not require treatment. If the calf becomes depressed or quits nursing, treatment should be started. Oral antibiotics can be used for treatment along with fluids, if the calf begins to dehydrate.

ProtozoaN Causes of Calf sCours

PreVeNtioN of Calf sCours

infEctious BovinE rhinotrachEitis (iBr) virus

crYPtosPoridium

Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite much smaller than coccidia. It has the ability to adhere to the cells which line the small intestine and to damage the microvilli. Several reports from researchers and diagnosticians have associated cryptosporidium with outbreaks of calf scours. As a rule, cryptosporidium is detected in combination with coronavirus, rotavirus, and/or E. coli. Calves infected by cryptosporidium have ranged from one to three weeks in age.

coccodiosis

Coccidiosis is seldom a problem in young calves. However; outbreaks in calves three to four weeks of age and older have been reported. Most outbreaks were associated with stress, poor sanitation, over-crowding, or sudden changes in feed. Some affected calves may exhibit signs of brain damage but tarry or bloody scours are commonly observed.

Yeasts aNd Molds

Yeast and molds are sometimes associated with lesions in the stomach or intestines of scouring calves. These organisms are not considered a primary cause of scours but rather secondary invaders. Very often they are found when scouring calves are victims of overuse of antibiotics or sulfas when very little was done to counteract dehydration by using fluids and electrolytes.

NutritioNal sCours

Under range conditions, a calf adapts a pattern of nursing that fills its needs. Nutritional scours can be caused by anything that disrupts this normal habit. A storm, strong wind or the mother going off hunting for new grass disrupts the normal nursing pattern.

There are managerial ganisms, it is essential to use as well as medical requirements more than shots and pills in that must be met. They must any effort to control scours succomplement each other. Furcessfully. thermore, calf scours prevention is a year-round effort, not a set of activities centered only around the calving season.

managEmEnt asPEcts

All facets of management are important. Particular attention should be paid to nutrition, environment, sanitation, and care of the newborn calf.

nutrition

The ration of the pregnant female should be balanced in energy, protein, minerals and vitamins. Care should be given to adjust the nutritional requirements during cold, inclement weather and to keep in mind that pregnant replacement heifers have not reached their mature size. Particular care must be taken to provide them with sufficient feed energy for maintenance and growth. Failure to meet energy needs will not only result in a weak calf at birth but also contributes to delays in return to estrus and lowered conception rates. Best results occur when replacement heifers are wintered and calved in advance of, and separate from the mature cow herd. Special attention should be given to energy deficiencies and/or vitamin A and E shortages.

EnvironmEnt and sanitation

Historically, severe outbreaks of scours are associated with bad weather, storms, slush and mud. Weather conditions are unpredictable and beyond our control. We can, however, control the environment in which the calf is born and raised early in life. The newborn calf needs a dry/clean place if we expect it to survive free of scours. Geographic and climatic conditions dictate the type of management needed to assure decent shelter. Sanitation is just as important as a dry/clean environment. Ideally, provide a special area used only for calving. Many cattlemen have to winter their pregnant females in confinement. Manure and urine accumulate and it becomes necessary to have a special calving area separate from the wintering area. After the calf is born and has nursed, it should be moved with its dam to a


nursing area before being turned to pasture.

attEntion to thE nEwBorn

Calving difficulties may weaken the newborn and its dam; the calf may not nurse sufficient colostrum and scour later on. Perhaps the single most important requirement for the newborn calves is to nurse colostrum early in life. The calf must nurse one to two quarts of colostrum during the first two to four hours immediately after birth. The calf is born without disease protection. Only by absorbing antibodies present in the colostrum will a calf acquire immunity against the various infectious causes of scours. At times it is not practical to milk a beef cow or heifer, but the calf still needs colostrum. Many cattlemen will have frozen colostrum on hand in small containers. Plastic bags, one to two pints in size, are ideal for storage. Colostrum may be saved from dairy cows. Make sure it is from cows vaccinated against infections predominant in your area and attempt to get it from older cows in the dairy herd. Older, vaccinated cows are more likely to have greater antibody levels than young, unvaccinated heifers. Colostrum should be saved from only the first two milkings. When needed, frozen colostrum should be thawed out slowly; boiling will destroy most of the antibodies. Colostrum may be kept frozen almost indefinitely. Many calves will also benefit from a vitamin A injection. Vitamin A deficiency is associated with scours. The calf should be given 500,000 I.U. (usually 1 cc) of vitamin A early in life.

VaCCiNatioN PrograMs

A well-planned and consistent vaccination program is an effective tool to prevent scours if the management aspects are taken care of. Different regions, even different herds in the same region, may vary in the type of infectious agents present. There is no such thing as a universal vaccination program. Each program must be tailored to the herd’s specific needs. A productive relationship with the local veterinarian, accurate records and diagnostic laboratory assistance are integral components in designing an effective vaccination program. Effective vaccines have been developed during the last decade, but the vaccination program is not completed until the calf nurses sufficient colostrum early in life. Some of the disappointment associated with the use of scour vaccines may reflect a missing link-the cow was vaccinated and collected antibodies in the colostrum, but the calf did not ingest colostrum early enough to be protected.

treatMeNt

Treatment of calves for scours is very similar regardless of cause. Treatment should be directed toward correction of the dehydration, acidosis and electrolyte loss. Antibiotic treatment can be given simultaneously with the treatment for dehydration. Dehydration can be overcome with simple fluids given by mouth early in the course of the disease. If dehydration is allowed to continue, intravenous fluid treatment becomes necessary. The clinical signs of dehydration first occur when the fluid loss reaches 5% to 6% percent of the body weight. Fluid loss of 8% results in depression, sunken eyes, dry skin and a calf will

probably be unable to stand. A 12% loss of fluids usually results in death. Oral fluids used early in the scouring process have been quite successful. Consult your veterinarian for electrolytes to be given orally. There are dry electrolyte powders available that can be mixed with water for oral administration. Most dehydrated calves suffer from hypothermia (body temperature lower than normal); it is often necessary to provide them with an external source of heat during fluid/electrolyte treatment. A warm barn or heat lamps are needed during treatment of hypothermic calves. If electrolyte powders are not available, a solution for administration can be prepared on the ranch by using a tablespoon of baking soda, one teaspoon of salt. and P 50 cc (eight ounces) of 50% dextrose. DO NOT USE TABLE SUGAR. Add enough warm water to make one gallon and administer up to one quart of this material every three to four hours, depending upon the degree of dehydration and fluid loss. This solution can be used as the only source of nutrients for a period of 24 to 48 hours. Do not use milk or milk replacers, as milk in the intestinal tract makes an ideal medium for bacteria such as E. coli to grow. Return the calf to the cow that has been milked out as soon as the calf is able to follow its mother. Another formula often used includes: One package (one ounce) of fruit pectin, one teaspoon of Lite salt, two teaspoons of baking soda, one can of beef consumme, plus enough warm water to make two quarts. Give one warm quart orally at four to six hour intervals. Giving electrolytes orally may be difficult unless the calf will nurse from a bottle. There is, however, a device on the market that works well for administering oral fluids to calves. It is a collapsible plastic pouch, about one-half to one gallon capacity, with a lid and a flexible esophageal tube. This plastic pouch or a stomach tube should treatment of calves for scours be used when giving calves large is very similar regardless of amounts of fluids. cause. treatment should be If the plastic pouch or directed toward correction of stomach tube is used, thorthe dehydration, acidosis and oughly disinfect and lubricate electrolyte loss. them between uses. Antibiotics should be used both orally and by injection whenever treating calves for diarrhea. Use systemic antibiotics, that is, either those that are injected or those which are absorbed from the intestinal tract. These are necessary to prevent pneumonia. Drugs that decrease intestinal motility and corticosteriods should not be used. Oral antibiotics, sulfas or scour-pills may or may not be beneficial. If used, they should only be used at the proper dosage and frequency and for two or three days at the most. If they are ineffective after two to three days, discontinue use. Otherwise, resistant bacteria or molds and yeast may overgrow in the calf ’s gut. Consult your veterinarian. In some Salmonellosis outbreaks, antibiotics may cause the release of excess endotoxins, so consider using fluid therapy only.
