Drifter is extremely unique when considering his pedigree. All that have seen him in the flesh are amazed by his impeccable design, overwhelming style and power of structure for a calving ease Maine-Anjou sire. Drifter is a third generation calving ease bull, who is quickly proving himself to be extremely consistent by siring low birth weight calves, in a stout, hairy, long necked package. Last summer, we searched the countryside for an Ali son that was bigger boned and footed, freakier necked, bigger and squarer hipped, shaggier haired, with a pedigree that could stack up any richer than Drifterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and we failed to accomplish our mission. Drifterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandmother was raised by Core Farms, IA and goes back to the Sweet Cheeks cow from Jirl Buck. Calf photos to follow.

BBR BURN NOTICE (SOONER X BOE PEBBLES) SOLD BY BBR AT DENVER 2010

Just ask Brian Fox of Blind Badger Ranch, Fort Morgan, Colorado, who states . . . . . “We have used Rough-N-Ready Creep for the last five years, starting June first and taking calves through until weaning. Our sale cattle are sorted off around the first of August and are then transferred over to the ShowTec Beef Creep until the sale the first Sunday in November. We have been very satisfied with the way our cattle look and perform come sale time. Too often sale cattle are pushed so hard on feed prior to sales, they can get burnt out. Even though we feed on self feeders, we feel the ShowTec Beef Creep puts the ideal amount of condition on our sale cattle. So not only do they look good on sale day, but also will go home with their new owners after the sale and continue to grow and mature. We have been very happy with the way our sale cattle perform in the pasture and in the show barn on ADM Alliance Nutrition® feeds.”

WalkerArticle by Dr. Paul Walker, Professor of Animal Science, and Andrea Hanson, Graduate Student, Illinois State University

Animal Agriculture Needs to Change Public Perception of our Industry In today’s mass media age, consumers are bombarded with information. At the same time, each person must filter through it all sorting out the junk, and this oftentimes, sadly, does not occur. People will believe what they see, read, and hear, and then perceive these things to be true, when oftentimes these words are far from the truth. Recently, this phenomenon has been occurring with animal agriculture in two distinct areas-animal care/welfare and environmental impacts. This trend, which affects everything from consumers’ purchasing habits to legislation, will persist until something is done to remedy public ignorance regarding animal agriculture production in modern society. The vast majority of Americans (98.5%) are removed from agriculture production and even more are removed from the animal production sector in particular, both of which perpetuate this ignorance with which the animal agriculture industry must compete. The solution to this problem may be education of consumers, legislators, and media personnel-not a new idea, but an idea that should be “stepped-upa-notch.” When citizens see clips of animal abuse and neglect in animal production (often portrayed by activist groups to garner donations), these clips are indelibly etched into the public’s mind, and these images, then, promote negative connotations that consumers associate with animal agriculture. This may even occur when people do not understand the reasons for which farmers engage in commonplace activities and management practices such as when providing piglet care (tail docking, clipping of needle teeth, etc.) and stall housing of pregnant sows. The media generally exacerbates the problem by blowing a single incident out of proportion so that they can increase viewership. However, consumers need to understand that the overwhelming majority of animals utilized in production are treated humanely and respectfully, with abuse and neglect occurring rarely, and that there are a wide variety of reasons (primarily for the protection of animals) for which we, as agriculturalists, engage in routine practices that may seem unjustified to some. Education is vital to preventing the spread of this negative public image of the industry. We must communicate to consumers the benefits of current production practices. Jane Doe has no idea why we dock tails, neuter animals, or house sows individually. We need to encourage industry professionals to write about such things to counteract the negative images that can and are being ingrained into the minds of consumers by animal rights activists and the media. If the media can sensationalize rare and regrettable cases of abuse and neglect, then so should we, too, glamorize our best management practices. Operations should provide legislators and people from the media with open houses or other such informational events at which they can learn more about modern animal care and environmental practices used on farms today. Events like this could be hosted by the various state livestock associations to offset costs to the producer. This strategy is currently being employed, but far too infrequently. Producers in the livestock industry should take every step necessary to promote the health and well being of the animals with which they work. Most producers follow guidelines established in the Housing and Equipment Handbooks available for each species and other animal care and use guidelines. The vast majority of operations follow all state and federal animal welfare regulations. Through such quality assurance programs as the Beef Quality Assurance (BQA), Pork Quality Assurance (PQA), and others, farmers can voluntarily educate themselves and certify to con-

sumers that their production practices are optimal for the welfare of their animals. The industry needs 100% participation in these voluntary programs before they become mandated programs. The public needs to be made aware that such programs exist in order to provide credibility to the animal production industry’s word when it is compared to that of the news media. Citizens are, also, being lead to believe that animal agriculture is a major polluter, leading to global warming and the demise of many ecosystems. Two ecosystems most publicized as being polluted by agriculture are the Chesapeake Bay on the East Coast and the “Dead Zone” in the Gulf of Mexico. While it is true that there are some producers that engage in less than desirable manure management practices, the majority of livestock producers follow state and federal regulations for manure handling. Most states have adopted legislation similar to the Illinois Livestock Management Facilities Act (ILMFA) that are responsible for ensuring that both large and small producers have viable waste management plans. Nationally, animal operations housing over 1000 animal units, CAFO’s (Confined Animal Feeding Operations), must have NPDES permits (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. These state regulations such as the ILMFA do much to limit livestock’s nutrient (N and P) contribution to the watershed of the Illinois, Mississippi, and other rivers. On a national scale, the EPA attempts to regulate concentrated animal feeding operations regarding manure management plans. In terms of greenhouse gas emissions, livestock do not produce as much methane as other natural sources of emissions such as wetlands and manmade sources such as rice patties. Municipal waste from cities and subdivisions also, greatly contributes to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, but this is a fact little mentioned in the mainstream media, maybe because people do not want to hear it. Public education programs should be implemented to educate the public about the various manure management practices such as composting, slurry separation techniques, and others that are being developed and implemented. We should stress the beneficial steps that animal agriculture has taken to preserve and protect the environment. People are bombarded with streams of “information” about animal agriculture from a wide variety of both credible and incredible sources. This has potential to affect legislation because it is an emotional issue. People may write legislators, imploring that they do something to stop what they might see as cruelty to animals or destruction of the environment. We need to ensure that the public understands that farmers are stewards of both the environment and the animals that provide us sustenance. Without us to care for and nurture them, they will not be able to give us anything in return. While the livestock industry does do a great job providing its consumer base with valid, scientific information, until it really bombards the public with positive information about animal production in today’s society, it simply cannot contend with the negative image often portrayed in mass media. Without education of the public, legislators and the media, laws restricting or banning humane modern production practices will be passed and implemented. Perhaps each state should implement a livestock advisory board patterned after the recently developed Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board. Councils such as these can assist and advise legislators in the evaluation of laws that affect the animal production industry.

Selecting Show Steers Developing the right “eye” to select next show season’s champion takes practice. While experience may serve as the best educator when it comes to determining your next steer purchase, here are a few factors to consider and traits to look for when buying your next show steer. Getting started Before you start, it’s important to set goals, said Dan Shike, University of Illinois livestock judging coach and assistant professor. Where do you plan to exhibit your steer? You may choose a different steer if your goal is to compete in one show than if you are selecting a steer to show at multiple shows throughout the year. When selecting a market project, you need to know your target endpoint so you can produce a desirable market animal for that time or environment. Age of selection varies in the club calf industry. Some choose to select calves when they are 60 days old. Others wait until they are 7 months old. “I don’t think there’s one perfect age to target,” Shike said. “Logically, if you wait until calves are older to make selections, it’s that much closer to show time and easier to see differences. But you should expect to pay more as the producer will incur more feed cost and risk. They may also spend time halter breaking, rinsing, clipping, etc., which will add value to the steer.” Finding your next champion “Don’t single-trait select your calves based on the steer that beat you last summer,” he warned. “We often try to outguess what judges will like at the shows. It’s not very often that the heaviest muscled or the cleanest fronted or the stoutest boned steer wins the show. Don’t get led astray by one trait.” Key factors to consider when you head out to look at calves are muscle, rib shape, structural correctness, balance, frame and maturity. When selecting a show steer, muscle is very important. Study base width at the ground, Shike suggests. Look for calves that stand and walk wide. When you are feeding out a market animal, muscle needs to be a high priority, but not at the expense of other traits. “Look for calves that are bold ribbed, deep bodied and have an easy-feeding look about them,” Shike said. “Just be aware that steers that are already getting wasty underneath at this age should cause some concern. You shouldn’t expect a young calf to be as soggy and deep bodied as a market-ready steer.” Structural correctness may be the most important trait to consider, Shike said. “It doesn’t matter how heavy muscled or big bodied your steer is,” he said. “If he’s not sound, you won’t be successful at the big shows. It’s also a harder trait for some to evaluate in young calves. The calves are smaller so structural issues may not seem as problematic at the time. However, as the calf grows and puts on weight, those minor issues will become more obvious issues that could become a limiting factor at the show.” Structural correctness is best evaluated on the move. Steers should take a long, easy stride and exhibit give and flex to their hock and pastern. Look for big footed, heavy boned, stout featured calves, but recognize that this can also lead to coarser, bigger joints that can cause soundness and mobility problems. “It’s important that their toes point relatively straight ahead and that they stand down true and correct from behind,” Shike said. “Avoid selecting steers that toe out up front or hock in

severely from behind. In addition, watch how heavier muscled cattle move from behind. They can tend to bow or roll out of their hock.” Balance ultimately differentiates quality in show steers. Balance indicates if a steer is proportional and correct. Eye appeal goes hand in hand with balance, Shike said. “A steer’s look from the side makes a difference in the show ring,” he said. “They need to be long and clean fronted and tie in smoothly at their shoulder. They should be level in their topline, uniform in their body depth and get progressively thicker as you move back toward their hip.” Frame size, maturity and condition can be challenging to evaluate, but understanding the role each can play in a growing calf can have huge rewards. When evaluating frame size, compare them against their contemporaries. Look for average sized, moderate framed cattle. Recognize that frame size has a great impact on the calf’s end point. “As we make cattle heavier muscled, stouter boned and bigger bodied while keeping market weights the same, cattle size will be moderated to reach that goal,” Shike said. Being able to read condition and maturity is important. Choosing the calf that already has the “fat” steer look will most likely not give you the end result you are seeking. “Calves that have been fed hard early usually appear stouter and heavier muscled,” Shike said. “On the other hand, ‘green’ calves or calves that haven’t been fed as hard, may respond better when they go on feed. But, be careful sometimes a ‘green’ calf may just be shallower bodied and harder feeding.” Ultimately, regardless of where a judge places emphasis, complete steers will surface to the top of the class, he said. Buying the calf The best way to evaluate cattle is in person. If it’s not possible to go yourself or have someone you trust evaluate them for you, videos are better than pictures. “Because structure and soundness are so important to evaluate, you need to do whatever you can to watch them move,” he said. When buying calves, ask about their pedigree, previous management and past history of success with similar genetics. Find out what vaccinations they have had and follow up by communicating with your veterinarian so they know your calf’s history to determine further vaccination and deworming schedules. Inquire about the calf’s feeding program. Adapt the calf slowly when you get home if you choose to move him to a new feeding program or ration. When it comes time to buy, keep in mind that price varies greatly in the steer industry. And the more often a steer changes owners, the more expensive he may be. “Determine ahead of time what your price range is based on your goals, interests and budget,” Shike said. “Once your range is determined, pick the best steer you can in that range. Buying a steer from someone who provides advice and service is another option to consider. The steer may be more expensive, but likely worth it.” Dan Shike is an assistant professor in animal sciences at the University of Illinois where he also serves as the coach of the livestock judging and meat animal evaluation teams. Shike and his family own Shike Cattle Company, a 150-cow, club-calf operation in western Illinois. Shike received his associate’s degree from Black Hawk College-East Campus in Kewanee, Ill., his bachelor’s degree in animal science from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan., and his master’s and Ph.D. in ruminant nutrition at the University of Illinois. He judges open and youth cattle shows across the country and is looking forward to bringing his own children up in the livestock industry. Shike and his wife, Jennifer, have two children and reside in Urbana, Ill.

BusinessArticle by Matthew E. O’Donnell, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

Roth: To Convert or Not to Convert You may have read that tax law changes went into effect in January that made everyone eligible for a Roth IRA conversion, regardless of income level or tax filing status. What’s so special about a Roth IRA? The assets you are working hard to build now will become tax-free income in retirement. Rather than paying taxes when you withdraw the funds in retirement, you pay taxes on the assets when you invest in a Roth IRA. If you have a Traditional IRA or an employer-sponsored retirement plan, you may be wondering if you should convert those savings to a Roth IRA. There is no one definitive answer to that question, but following are a number of reasons why, depending on your personal financial situation, converting an existing retirement plan to a Roth IRA could help you meet your financial goals. You don’t expect to need all of the funds when you retire. With a Traditional IRA, you must stop contributing and start taking minimum distributions from your account at age 70½. Roth IRAs have no such age restrictions: there’s no contribution cutoff, provided income requirements are met, and no rule that you must begin tapping your account at age 70½. Your funds have the potential to grow tax-deferred as long as you want and you gain greater control over your income in retirement. You can tailor withdrawal amounts to your actual income needs—or eliminate them altogether in any given year So if you are past age 70½ and would like to quit taking those required minimum distributions, you may still have the option to convert some or all of your IRA into a Roth, allowing those funds to have the potential to grow tax-free for your own needs later in life or for your heirs. Note that you will need to pay taxes on the taxable amount of the IRA at the time of the conversion, so you should review this option carefully with your tax advisor before electing to convert to a Roth IRA. Also, the funds may only be converted after any current year required minimum distributions have been withdrawn. You want to leave a lasting financial legacy to your heirs. If you won't need your IRA to fund your retirement income, a Roth IRA can be an effective wealth planning tool, since heirs can enjoy continued asset growth potential without paying taxes when they withdraw assets. By using a “stretch IRA” strategy, you can extend the tax-deferred growth potential and tax-free income benefits of your Roth IRA across multiple generations. This works by taking advantage of the fact that, while the beneficiaries of your Roth IRA (other than your spouse) will be required to take minimum distributions annually after your death, those distribution amounts will be calculated using a life-expectancy factor based on their own age, not your age. This allows more of the funds to remain in the account longer, continually reaping the benefits of tax-deferred growth potential, and if your beneficiary outlives the account, it can similarly be passed on to the next generation, and so on. You’re concerned about taxes. You’re aware that diversifying your portfolio by investing in multiple asset classes, including stocks, bonds and cash, can be a way to mitigate risk. The same logic applies to tax diversification: by spreading your retirement assets across

162

May 2010 theshowcircuit.com

different types of accounts provides diversification. A tax-free Roth account combined with a taxable account, like a brokerage account or mutual funds account, and a tax-deferred account, like a 401(k) or Traditional IRA, can give you the flexibility to potentially keep taxes low in retirement. This is especially important if you’re concerned about future tax increases or you think that your tax liabilities may be higher in retirement. Converting some of your Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA can be an effective strategy that allows you to take income from different sources to potentially keep taxes low in retirement. You think that you might need some of the money before you retire. If you withdraw funds from a Traditional IRA before age 59½, not only will you be taxed on the value of the funds withdrawn, you will also be subject to a 10% early-withdrawal penalty unless an exception applies. With a Roth IRA, you can withdraw the original contribution at any time, without penalty. You can even withdraw earnings, but if you do not meet the requirements listed above regarding the length of time held, age and other considerations, you will be taxed on the earnings when you withdraw the funds. Is a Roth Right for You? We have touched on some key benefits of converting to a Roth IRA, but for many individuals a Roth conversion may not be the best strategy. If one or more of the following apply to you, it might be best for you to avoid conversion or to only convert a portion of your retirement account: • You expect that your tax bracket will be the same, or lower, in retirement. • You do not have funds available to pay the extra taxes from the conversion. • You only have a short time frame to take advantage of tax-free compounding before retiring. • You have projected income needs equal to or greater than the required minimum distributions of the IRA. Get Help Making your Decision To help you understand how a Roth conversion will likely impact your financial scenario, ask an Advisor to provide a personal Roth Conversion Illustration Report for you. This report explores your specific situation, factoring in such variables as the amount to be converted, the distribution year, your date of birth and where you are in the retirement planning cycle. Based on this input, the report shows the after-tax future value of an IRA balance, comparing the outcomes of a Traditional IRA with those of a Roth IRA. You’ll also be able to see the wealth planning advantages of “stretching” a Roth IRA over multiple generations. Finally, as with all tax related issues, you should also discuss your situation with your tax advisor. Matthew E.

Oklahoma Club Calf Association - May ‘10 After what many consider to be one of the worst winters in history in our part of the world, today the grass is green, the leaves are out, and the wind is blowing. Everyone is in hopes of great crops, good pastures, and a super calf crop. It was beautiful for the breeding shows and all of the contests; however, the last weekend, with the market shows, was another story. Blowing snow and freezing temperatures tested everyone’s real “want to” which we all have or we wouldn’t do this. High hopes and expectations are building in all of the exhibitors as well as Moms, Dads, Grandpas and Grandmas as we prepare for The Oklahoma Beef Expo, which kicks off a new point year in our OCCA. It also is where we have our end of year awards banquet. All of the awards for breeds, all around heifer and steer exhibitors, showmanship, and scholarships for outstanding members are presented. The championship buckles awarded for high point breed exhibitors can be seen worn by winners over the past fifteen years at our shows and functions. All around jackets with letter patches for breeds or showmanship are the pride of our livestock exhibitors throughout the state. Parents who have children finishing their show career stand and talk to friends whom they once competed against. They recall the steers and heifers that they showed and the races for the belt buckles that were so competitive back in their day. Yes, this is a family orientated organization that promotes youthful fellowship, lasting memories, and friendships. Parents, you should be proud of the time, money, and effort put forth for your son or daughter to participate in an organization that promotes Americanism and true camaraderie. Learning and developing through an association with a product that not only the United States, but the entire world, depends on for survival, BEEF. Kids always remember the time, money and effort that Mom and Dad put forth allowing you an opportunity to be a part of a youth organization, such as the OCCA. The responsibility, hard work, selection, evaluation, and leadership are all so tightly knitted for you to succeed! A thank you and a hug is all Mom and Dad want for this and you will remember that hug even more than they do in the years to come. When we go home from the banquet, we can always remember the friends from the past year. As we drive through the pasture looking for next years champions that are being born now, while thinking of those great expectations for the coming show year. Remember, get your membership forms in! Until next time, may all your calves be champions and your experiences be memorable.

Sincerely, Lyle Blakley, OCCA President www.oklahomaclubcalfassociation.com

Missouri Club Calf Association Missouri Juniors, Friends, & Family.. It is hard to believe we are half way through this year’s show season! For some of you, it is your first of what I hope will be many years of showing. And for some of you it is your last, but probably full of more memories than many of the years before! Whatever the case maybe, enjoy it! Those around you have given you an opportunity that could change your life; live it up - soak in every success! Yes, there will be times when things won’t go like you hoped, but I guarantee, those moments will shape who you are the rest of life as well. With that said, if you ever need anything from the committee, or if you have a question about the way that something was handled, please contact one of us. We are here to help and support you in anyway that we can. If you ever feel a discrepancy exists, please let us know immediately and we will do what we can to rectify it. Caps and cups are still available – contact one of us to get yours today. They would make a great Mother/Grandmother’s or Father/Grandfather’s day gift! Have a great and safe summer!

Looking to

INCREASE

your number of freezable embryos?

WHAT’S IT WORTH TO YOU?

REPRO contains the correct levels of vitamins and organic sourced chelated minerals to maximize reproductive efficiency such as embryo production. Repro also contains nucleotide technology which supports in the process of cellular replication, supports the animals immune system, helps the animal get through stressful periods and also aids in embryo production. Fish oil is also formulated in Repro because it contains the highest levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. Designed to be fed 45-60 days before flushing. “We used Repro on two first calf heifers 120 days after calving and flushed them a combined total of four times. Between the four flushes we banked 152 grade one embryos and 166 total freezable embryos! We plan to use Repro on all of our donors this spring and for the years to come” - Brian Schwindy, Schwindy Cattle Co., Ind

“We have recently used Repro on two flushes, one being a second calver, and banked 44 freezable embryos. We had enough confidence in Repro that we gave it to a neighbor to use on a problem donor cow that usually flushes three or four embryos. She now produces between seven and 9 embryos! We are true believers!” - Chuck & Grant Sojka, Sojka Farms, Iowa
