Sullivan’s

Vita Hair Volumizer Foaming Shampoo ™

The first livestock shampoo to scientifically produce hair volume! Vita Hair Volumizer™ Foaming Shampoo is formulated with a natural plant-based proprietary surfactant technology that creates an opposite acting polar electrical charge within each hair strand that actually pushes every hair follicle apart. This prevents the hair from sticking together, and actually springs it loose, making each hair follicle stand on end for a noticeable difference in hair volume and body. This, never before offered, exclusive chemistry for livestock consists of chemically altered ions. Ions are small electrical molecules within surfactants that usually have positive or negative charges which create an attraction to each other. In livestock hair, this attraction causes the hair to stick to each other. The non-ionic chemistry of Vita Hair Volumizer™ inhibits an unusual neutral charge to the ionic molecule of each follicle creating no attraction or pull between the hair strands. This neutral charge actually enables each hair follicle to stand free for extreme hair separation. All this with a plant based neutral pH, making it gentle and nourishing to the hide and hair as it gently cleans deep, down to the roots of each hair follicle. Fortified with Sullivan’s VITA HAIR™ a nourishing vitamin package to boost hair and skin health without added weight to hair. Designed to be used in a foamer.

A true “game changer” in hair performance!

Don’t use something that only gives you a one shot deal at one show. Use Hide And Hair. It gives you a much larger window of hair growth to broaden your options on shows you might go. Hide And Hair is the ONLY choice in hair growth products if you are serious about showing USE FOR 90 TO 120 DAYS and you will be using what the champions are using!!

Unbelievable is an incredibly designed calving ease prospect that owns unique neck extension, unquestioned structural soundness, extra special belly depth, and super muscle shape for an Angus bull. Unbelievable is sired by the wildly popular Bismarck bull, yet offers extra depth and hair, no doubt due to his maternally stacked pedigree which consists of a double shot of legendary Flashback laced with VRD and TC Dividend. We envision Unbelievable siring extra-ordinary low birth-weight progeny utilizable in both purebred and hybrid cow herds. We can’t wait for Unbelievable progeny!

BIG pIcture

Weather Will Make or Break cattle Inventory

W

hen USDA released the Livestock Dairy and Poultry Outlook report on April 15, much of the country faced escalating drought condi tions with little relief as yet from spring precipitation. As Kenneth Matthews explained in the report’s summary, what happens weatherwise in the next few months will determine if the national cow herd can finally begin to rebuild.

be the lowest since 2008 and is indicative of both low cow inventories and intentions to retain or increase cow inventories as soon as pasture conditions permit. If pasture conditions fail to develop normally, the rate of cow slaughter could again increase, which could delay any expansionary intentions. First-quarter commercial steer and heifer slaughter is on track to be the lowest since 1965. First-quarter beef production will likely be the lowest only since 2005 because dressed weights have increased over time and have largely offset general declines in inventories and slaughter since their peak in the mid-1970s.

“With California already dismally short on precipitation and past the rainy season, the rest of the United States is hoping for more normal rainfall,” he wrote. “With normal rainfall, anticipated expansion of cattle inventories could begin this year. Reduced supplies of beef and higher prices could follow.

“Weekly prices for 90% lean cow carcasses continue to increase as weekly federally inspected cow slaughter declines year over year. Cow-calf producers should continue to see attractive cow prices for the near term because of low cow inventories and continued demand for ground beef products from culled cows. Choices for producers who are not entirely certain they want to deal with another year of drought will be made more difficult by high cow prices.

“Drought continues to parch most of the West and Southwest United States and appears to be spreading farther east and north into the Southern and Central Plains. The winter rainy season in California and the Southwest was disappointing at best, portending another drought year. The rainy season for the Plains usually begins about mid-April and continues through mid-June. With roughly half of the national cow herd found in the area east of the Rocky Mountains and west of (and including) the states along the east side of the Mississippi River, there is still hope for normal precipitation in that area. Corn prices have moved roughly $1 per bushel higher from postharvest lows and were given an additional boost in the intentions to plant fewer acres this year. “Commercial cow slaughter for first-quarter 2014 is on track to

64 May 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

“Feeder cattle prices could decline slightly in the near future as demand for pasture cattle subsides with stocking of available pasture. However, anticipation of the smallest calf crops since 1949 will provide significant price support for the limited supplies of feeder cattle later in 2014 and 2015. At the same time, fed cattle and beef prices may have reached their seasonal peaks. Any declines would diminish price support for heavier feeder cattle despite dwindling supplies. “With costs in the $129 to $130 range and fed cattle prices gyrating around $150 per cwt., cattle feeders could be experiencing positive margins exceeding $200 per head. However, fed cattle prices could decline into the summer if they follow a typical seasonal pat-


cullInG Order fOr fall-calvInG Herds WHen fOraGe Is lIMIted By dr. Glenn selk, Oklahoma state university emeritus extension specialist With low cattle numbers in some areas of the United States, producers would like to expand their beef herds. However, in much of the western part of the Southern Plains, Mother Nature has not cooperated. Many producers are currently being faced with limited forage availability due to drought and (in a few cases) wildfires. One of the first management tools that should be evaluated for cow/calf producers is to cull poorer producing cows and capture their value at a time when the prices for cows and culled replacement heifers are strong and allow for some capital investment to be used when cattle prices may be lower and forage supplies are more plentiful. Below is a suggested order of culling for fall-calving herds in the face of diminishing forage supplies.

tern. This is especially likely with the record December 2013 to February 2014 placements of cattle weighing over 800 pounds in feedlots of 1,000 head or more since the series began. “These cattle could create a bulge in market-ready supplies of fed cattle this summer, which could exert downward pressure on fed cattle prices. With retail Choice and All-fresh beef pries having reached record levels – and despite beef packers having recently again experienced negative margins after a brief period in the black – lower fed cattle prices could lead to wider wholesale-to-retail margins. Retail beef prices increased by 4% from $5.35 per pound in January 2014 to $5.58 per Choice beef in February. All-fresh beef prices increased by almost 5%, from $5.04 to $5.28 over the same period. “However, low supplies of market-ready fed cattle are constraining slaughter at successively lower levels, and it is not inconceivable that consumers could begin to look for alternative protein sources with beef prices at record levels. Pork and poultry prices are also increasing, but remain lower than beef. High prices for all meats and poultry could drive grilling season away from the higher priced beef cuts toward ground beef, pork, and poultry.” – U.S. Department of Agriculture

Culling order: 1. Open (non-pregnant) old cows 2. Open replacement heifers 3. Old cows with unsound mouth, eyes, or feet and legs 4. Open cows of any age 5. Thin cows over 7 years of age (BCS < 4) 6. Very late bred young cows The first two items on the list are automatic culls in any forage year. Old, open cows are not worth keeping through a low-forage, expensive feeding period. Replacement heifers that were properly developed and mated to a fertile bull or in a well-organized AI program should be pregnant. If they are not bred, there is a likelihood that they are reproductively unsound and should be removed from the herd while still young enough to go to the feedlot and grade choice with an A maturity carcass. The more difficult decisions come when the producer is short enough in forage and feed supplies that he/she feels the need to cull cows that have been palpated and found pregnant. That order of culling starts with line 5 on our culling order. This is necessary only when grass and feed supplies are very short. The thin, older cows are going to require additional feed resources to have a high probability of being productive the following year and the late-bred 2 year olds are least likely to have long-term productivity in your herd. We pray that spring rains return and allow for forage growth this summer. If that does occur, the reduced stocking rates on native pastures would be helpful in allowing the range condition a chance to recuperate from several years of drought and heavy grazing.

PROFESSOR TO PRODUCER

By Dr. Paul Walker Professor Emeritus | DI Walker Consulting

Time To Invest In A Cattle

Feedlot

I

s now the time to invest in or expand a feedlot enterprise? The short answer is, it could be, especially if the cattle feed yard is located within the Midwest. States such as Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Ohio have ample water, surplus by-product feedstuffs and grain farmers who have profits to invest from successful corn and soybean production of recent years. Cattle prices are at record highs. Feed costs are becoming more realistic as corn and soybean prices moderate. For a farm family wanting to incorporate a son or daughter into the operation, expanding a grain farm may be difficult due to limited access to additional acres, but expanding an operation by building a confinement feed yard is doable. For folks in the High Plains where the cattle feeding industry has 22% excess feedlot capacity, according to Tom Brink, building additional feedlot space may seem foolish. But, things are different in the Midwest where excess feed and water are located. To support my proposal, this article highlights a scenario I have presented to Midwest grain producers considering starting a feedlot operation. First, several assumptions are made. The assumptions are: - Land for buildings is owned and no charge for land is included. - All buildings must be built, except for a machine shed/shop. - A monoslope cattle building will be used to house the cattle. - Total one-time capacity is limited to 950 cattle to keep the animal units below 1,000 a.u. to prevent the need for a local county hearing in most states. - Capacity can be increased every three years by increasing size equal to less than one-half the total value of the original buildings’

80 May 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

cost, plus the cost of the addition, without affecting set-backs. This is true in Illinois. It may not be true in other states. - Required set backs can be met – ¼ mile to the nearest non-farm residence and ½ mile to the nearest populated site. - Feed cost is based on a diet that contains 40% CDS on a DM basis (refer to feed tables). - An adequate well is already on the site or an appropriate capacity well (1,000 gpm) can be drilled. - No fertilizer value is assigned to the manure, but the manure does have substantial fertilizer value and is an additional source of income. Cattle Revenue - Purchase: 950 head @ 600 lbs., feed to 1,400 lbs. = 800-lb. gain - Performance: ADFI = 32.7 lbs./head/day, ADG = 3.3 lbs., Feed cost = 5.9¢/lb. of feed - Feeding period: 800 lbs. gain @ 3.3 lbs./d = 242d - Cattle fed/yr equals 1.5 turns/yr or 1,425 cattle - Feeders cost: 600 lbs. @ $2.00 = $1,200 - Finish price: 1,400 lbs. @ $1.40 = $1,960 - Feed cost/yr equals $1.93/d x 950 cattle x 365 d = $66,8985 - Return over feed cost/cattle ($1,200 purchase + $467 feed cost = $1,667) and $1,960 -$1,667 = $293 - Death loss = 1% or 9.5 cattle/turn or 14.3 cattle/yr - Return over purchase price + feed cost: drove accounting for deads is 940.5 cattle = $275,567; or on a year basis is 1,410.8 cattle = $413,364

Return on investment: yr is 5.22% This hypothetical scenario returns $99,657 per year, which is a 5.22% return on the $1,909,450 investment. In addition, these projections include $69,350 in labor, which could be the salary of a young man or woman returning to the farm. These are truly great times for those willing to look outside the box. The figures used in this scenario are conservative. In the cattle industry, the cup is half full and on its way up.

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.

HEAT WAVE COMING? The spring is upon us and with this winter the way it was, everyone is ready! However, with the cold winter we had & the hot summer the experts keep talking about; feed efficiency may be a topic of concern. In April you ask? Yes…with the cold winter months, the energy spent to maintain was increased drastically this year. This may have you slightly behind on weight gain & keep in mind that daily gains slow down going into hot weather. This means you may want to keep pushing the energy in the form of a “hotter” feed ration. Rations like Umbarger’s Cattle Blaster or Impact are excellent options. Make sure you are set up to roll right into your summer show. Many times, we will make sure our clients get to our finish weight & hold for a short period of time; then, we can bloom one back up 10 days or so prior to our final show date. Also with the warmer weather, it is time to get that dead hair out & new coming. Yet another reason to get your calf up to speed now. The hotter the ration, the less the hair growth we typically see. Getting that dead hair out can be assisted with shedding combs and time in the sun. Once that is complete, typically in May, we like to get our cattle in the barn, away from daylight & start working the hair for the upcoming summer show season. Supplements like Haired Up, a kelp & vitamin based hair supplement, or implants like those available on puremelatonin.com will help get that hair growth off the ground level. We hope that these basic suggestions will lead you to a productive summer and help you have your project ready for a purple banner.

inger-songwriter Michael Martin Murphey celebrates the westerner’s thought process in a song titled “Cowboy Logic.” Its humorous verse is packed with axioms meant to explain the cowboy way of handling a situation, tackling of piece of work, or avoiding it. Like the witty adages of Benjamin Franklin, bits of cowboy logic have become fodder for poets and pundits, and are often offered as examples of common sense. Some samples, however, suggest a penchant for taking shortcuts that can lead to trouble. Eighteenth-century poet Alexander Pope wasn’t much of a cowboy. While he probably couldn’t make a hand in cattle country, Pope is credited with coining the phrase, “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” Weatherford, Texas, veterinarian and cattle embryologist Brad Stroud fears that is a statement which applies to the handling of frozen semen and embryos. He’s convinced that the level of knowledge is dangerously low among many people who routinely handle frozen reproductive cells. Stroud says that probably includes many veterinarians.

ficially inseminated donor cows were found to be unfertilized. He’s now convinced that more attention must be paid to the handling of frozen semen. “We know how to freeze semen, but do we know how to handle it afterward? Is there an adequate curriculum for training the people that handle semen up until it is thawed and placed in a cow? To my knowledge, none exists,” states Stroud. “We have a problem that should be addressed through formal training. The challenge is educating people that don’t think they need it.”

to use has shown that fertilization and embryo production were correlated with the quality of frozen semen used to breed donor cows. Documentation of the origin of frozen semen shipped to Stroud Veterinary Embryo Service shows that semen samples shipped directly from bull studs, where it was collected, processed, and stored, had an “unacceptable” evaluation rate of 2 per 100 batches evaluated. Semen samples personally delivered or shipped by animal breeders had an “unacceptable” evaluation rate of 8 per 100 batches. This suggests that semen that had been in the hands of animal breeders and other handlers was four times more likely to be unacceptable than semen coming directly from a bull stud.

“We have a problem that should be addressed through formal training. The challenge is educating people that don’t think they need it.”

In nearly 30 years of embryo transfer work, Stroud has experienced plenty of “anger, frustration and embarrassment” over unexplained breeding failures. The disappointments spurred his search for reasons why too many ova (eggs) recovered from arti-

Among the evidence that a problem exists are data compiled by the American Embryo Transfer Association. Stroud points to records from 2006 showing that of some 600,000 beef and dairy ova collected during the year, roughly 48% were not viable. “That seems like a lot of waste, doesn’t it?” asks Stroud. “It’s certain that unfertilized ova don’t make us any money.” Stroud says research involving evaluation of frozen semen prior

“It tells us that bull studs do a good job,” opines Stroud, “and the uneducated (handlers) too often don’t.”

There is ample opportunity for mishandling - mistakes that expose frozen semen or embryos to temperatures at which cell damage or death occurs. This can happen when semen samples are received and transferred from a shipping vessel to storage tank. It can happen when preparing a shipment or taking inventory. Most common, perhaps, are mistakes made when a technician searches among a tank’s contents for semen from a certain sire. According to Stroud, these kinds of mistakes are made repeatedly in the field, by people May 2014 • theshowcircuit.com

“If a frozen straw of semen remains solidified during and after an exposure, the perpetrator thinks no harm has been done. Since the ice structure has remained intact, at least to the naked eye, he thinks the sperm should be fine,” explains Stroud. “Unfortunately, that’s not the case.”

is believed that semen and embryos frozen and stored properly in liquid nitrogen could remain viable for a thousand years or longer. Cellular metabolism essentially ceases and the cells don’t age. However, Stroud emphasizes that once sperm cells or embryos are cooled to a temperature below minus 130 degrees C, neither can be raised to temperatures above that mark and then re-exposed to lower temperatures, or cell damage can occur. Damage is caused by “recrystallization” - the reorganization of very

ture. For a tank that’s three quarters full of liquid nitrogen, the temperature of vapor just above the liquid is usually about minus 190 degrees, but the temperature one inch from the top of the same tank is only a few degrees cooler than the surrounding environment. Since many technicians routinely raise canisters and canes of semen too high in the tank neck, for too long, samples may be repeatedly exposed to potentially damaging temperatures.

The first step in freezing either semen or embryos is exposure, at room temperature, to cryoprotectants, such as glycerol or ethylene glycol. The purpose, says Stroud, is to remove water from within the reproductive cells. The second step is to slowly cool reproductive cells, to minus 30 degrees Centigrade (C), which causes any remaining intercellular water to move into the fluid surrounding the cells. Then the reproductive cells are ready to be plunged into liquid nitrogen, which is minus 196 degrees C.

small ice crystals in the extracellular fluid into much larger crystals that physically invade the reproductive cells. Damage severity depends on the temperature to which frozen sperm or embryos were raised (how much above minus 130 degrees C) and the length of exposure time.

Stroud says cane tabs are usually marked with a code, rather than bulls’ names. If a technician doesn’t have cane codes recorded, the cane is lifted and hung above the tank frost line while a semen straw is removed, frost is wiped away and printed information on the straw is read. If it is the correct straw, it is placed into a water bath to thaw. If not, it is returned to the cane and the search for the desired straw continues. But every time a canister containing canes of frozen semen is raised high enough in the neck of the tank, and long enough to allow the straws’ internal temperature to exceed minus 130 degrees, a certain amount of cell damage occurs.

According to Stroud, the reason for removing intracellular water is to keep formation of ice within the cells to an absolute minimum. Intracellular ice damages cell membranes, cellular organelles and even chromosomes. It

What most people don’t think about, says Stroud, is how temperature in the necks of most farm and ranch storage tanks varies in a gradient manner, ranging from minus 75 degrees C to nearly room tempera-

“If the mistake is repeated over and over, each exposure causes damage that is additive. So, poor handling habits can result in cumulative damage that can decrease sperm fertilizing capabilities and, in some

When you understand low temperature biology, witnessing those common handling mistakes should send shivers up your back. It will, in Stroud’s opinion, when you think about what happens to reproductive cells during the freezing and thawing processes.

it can take as little as 30 seconds of exposure to the upper third of a tank’s neck, for the internal temperature of a 0.5 milliliter straw to drop sufficiently for post-thaw sperm motility to be negatively and irreversibly affected.

cases, lead to total infertility,” adds Stroud. “More often than not, nutritional insufficiencies and poor heat detection inappropriately get blamed for the problems.” According to Stroud, it can take as little as 30 seconds of exposure to the upper third of a tank’s neck, for the internal temperature of a 0.5 milliliter straw to drop sufficiently for post-thaw sperm motility to be negatively and irreversibly affected. For a 0.25 French straw, even less exposure time is required. Consequently, Stroud recommends application of the “eight second rule” to provide a safe working time for most handling events. However, some samples may still be jeopardized when canisters or canes are raised four or more inches above the frost line or into ambient air. Cowboy logic isn’t good enough when handling frozen reproductive cells. Damage to sperm and embryos can begin long before they are thawed, and there is ample opportunity for thermal stress when preparing or receiving semen shipments, taking inventory and transferring semen from vessel to vessel. And while it may be difficult to admit that bad habits could be at fault, the consequences of semen handling methods should be considered when unexplained breeding failures occur. Stroud believes better training in proper semen handling technique could go a long way toward improving the overall success of AI and embryo transfer. Even for experienced technicians, periodic refresher courses may be well advised.

rusts can help ensure that your assets are put to work according to your wishes. They can protect your family, provide for a spendthrift or disadvantaged child, grant access to sophisticated investment management, benefit charity and trusts may also reduce estate and transfer taxes.

Contrary to what many people think, trusts are not reserved only for the wealthy. The truth is, people from all walks of life may benefit from a trust.

Cour tesy of: Mat thew E. O’Donnell Vice President Morgan Stanley

What Is a trust? In general, a trust is a separate legal entity that is created by a unique written document in which the owner of an asset – the trust’s creator or “grantor” – transfers legal title of that asset to a named trustee of the trust to hold and manage for the purpose of benefiting one or more beneficiaries, who are the equitable owners of that asset. Trusts may be revocable or irrevocable and may be included in a will to take effect at death. Revocable trusts can be changed or revoked at any time. For this reason, the IRS considers any trust assets to still be included in the grantor’s taxable estate. This means that the grantor must pay income taxes on revenue generated by the trust and possibly estate taxes on those assets remaining after his or her death. Irrevocable trusts cannot be changed once they are executed. The assets placed into a properly drafted irrevocable trust are permanently removed from a grantor’s estate and transferred to the trust. Income and capital gains taxes on assets in the trust are paid by the trust to the extent they are not passed on to current beneficiaries. Upon a grantor’s death, with certain exceptions, the assets in the trust are generally not considered part of the estate and are therefore not subject to estate taxes. Most revocable trusts become irrevocable at the death or disability of the grantor. the role of a trustee The trust’s grantor names a trustee to effect the terms of the governing trust document in accordance with the needs and circumstances of the beneficiaries in accordance with applicable local law, which may generally include: to receive and safe-guard trust assets, manage trust

investments, including the selection of investment managers where appropriate and make decisions regarding distributions. A trustee is held to the highest standard and must be loyal and impartial in all its decisions. For a revocable trust, while the grantor is still alive, that grantor can work with the trustee on major decisions or the trustee can be assigned full authority to act on the grantor’s behalf. A trustee may be an individual such as a family member or a trusted advisor, such as an attorney or accountant, or it may be a professional entity that offers skill and experience in such areas as taxation and money management. Trustees have a responsibility – known as “fiduciary responsibility” – to always act in the beneficiaries’ best interests. BenefIts of a trust Although trusts can be used in many ways, they are most commonly used to: • Control assets and provide security for the beneficiaries (of whom can be the grantor in a revocable trust). • Provide for beneficiaries who are minors or require expert assistance managing money. • Achieve charitable giving. • Avoid estate or income taxes. • Provide expert management of estates. • Avoid probate expenses. • Maintain privacy. • Protect real estate holdings or a business. Generally speaking, most people use trusts to help maintain control of assets while they’re alive and medically competent, as well as indirectly maintain control of the disposition of assets if they’re medically unable to do so or in the event of death.


trusts offer flexIBIlIty to Meet your needs Different kinds of trusts are designed to meet different needs and objectives. For example, if your primary goal is to ensure privacy in the settlement of your estate, to centralize control of assets, or to fully take advantage of estate tax credits provided by the IRS, you might choose a living trust. The living trust allows you to remain both the trustee and the beneficiary of the trust while you’re alive. You maintain control of the assets and receive all income and benefits. Upon your death, a designated successor trustee manages and/or distributes the remaining assets according to the terms set in the trust, avoiding the probate process. In addition, should you become incapacitated during the term of the trust, your successor or co-trustee can take over its management.

trUSt DEfINItIoNS

A Family Trust and Marital Trust may be created under your will or during your life-time and are generally put in place to take full advantage of the estate tax and generation-skipping transfer tax exemptions that may be available to you and your spouse. When properly set-up, these type of trusts may maximize tax savings and provide for the family into the future. Often times but not necessarily, these trusts are used in second marriages when there are children from the first marriage. Typically, these trusts are irrevocable with certain exceptions.

GrANtor -- the owner of the assets

An irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT) is often used as an estate tax funding mechanism for estates with no or low liquidity. Under this trust, you make gifts to an irrevocable trust, which in turn uses those gifts to purchase a life insurance policy on you. Upon your death, the policy’s death benefit proceeds are payable to the trust, which in turn provides tax-free cash to help beneficiaries meet estate tax obligations.

Any gift tax you might incur from giving away the property is discounted because you still have rights to live in the house during the term of years spelled out in the trust. The potential drawback is that if you die before the term of the trust ends, the home is considered part of your estate. Also, during the QPRT term, the house generally cannot be used as collateral for a mortgage and it may be difficult to refinance an existing mortgage. If you want to leave money to your grandchildren, you might consider a generation-skipping trust.This trust can help you leave bequests to your grandchildren and avoid or reduce your generation-skipping transfer tax exposure, which can be up to 40% on the federal level in 2013. To help benefit your favorite charity while serving your own trust purposes, you might consider a charitable lead trust (CLT). This trust lets you pay a charity income from the trust for a designated amount of time, after which the principal goes to the beneficiaries, who receive the property free of estate taxes. However, keep in mind that you’ll need to pay gift taxes on a portion of the value of the assets you transfer to the trust. Another charitable option, the charitable remainder trust (CRT), allows you to receive income and a tax deduction at the same time, and ultimately leave assets to a charity. Through this trust, the trustee will use donated cash or sell donated property or assets, ameliorate any capital gains tax, and establish an annuity payable to you, your spouse, or your heirs for a designated period of time. Upon completion of that time period, the remaining assets go directly to the charity. Highly appreciated assets are typically the funding vehicles of choice for a CRT. ConsIder the Costs Different types of trusts and trustees can require a variety of fees for administration and wealth management. As you develop your trust strategies, remember to consider the costs that may be involved and weigh them carefully in relation to the benefits. Is a trust rIght for you? Although you may still need a will, trusts are becoming more widely used among Americans, wealthy or not. Increasing numbers of people are discovering the potential benefits of a trust – how it can help protect their assets, reduce their tax obligations and define the management of assets according to their wishes in a private, effective way.

PoINtS to rEmEmBEr 1. A trust is a unique, written document that governs the relationship between the grantor, the trustee, the assets and the beneficiary(ies). 2. Trusts are either revocable or irrevocable. 3. Because you can change or discontinue a revocable trust at any time, the government considers the trust’s assets as part of your estate for tax purposes. 4. Irrevocable trusts cannot be altered once they are established. 5. There are some basic types of trusts: living trust, family trust, marital trust, qualified personal residence trust, generation-skipping trust, charitable lead trust, and charitable remainder trust. 6. Different types of trusts involve different costs for administration and management. 7. Your financial advisor can help you determine if a trust will meet your needs.

MISSOURI CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

Goodbye from Your Adult

Dear Exhibitors and their supporters -

I

t is with a heavy heart that Michele and I have both decided to step down from the MCCA after the Battle of the Breeds show in Sedalia. This organization and the great people that go along with it have become a big part of our lives and we will miss you. We have come a long way from our little card table in the corner at AGR in 2009! It has been amazing to watch so many kids find themselves and grow while showing. It has been an honor to be allowed to be a small part of each of your lives. Exhibitors, you have made it all worth it, I loved meeting and getting to know you as I followed your show career. My daughter Beau Ann looks up to many of you and I am thankful for the great role models you have been for her, especially the junior board members, who we have been blessed to know so well. If I could have handpicked every board member each year, I don’t know if I could have picked them any better. Parents and supporters– thank you for believing in us, we could not have done this without you. The MCCA has come a long way, but there is room for growth, my hope is that you will continue to share your great ideas with the board and let them know you are still there for them. They will need you now more than ever. Bailey Dent, Brianne Abramovitz-Bishop and Mallory Early will be your contacts. I have complete faith that they will carry out their duties with respect for the MCCA, its rules and what it stands for. These three young ladies have selflessly agreed to give their time so that I can spend more of my own time doing what I need to. It has been awesome to be a part of something so wonderful as this. Thank you…. See you down that road. Samantha Graves

Advisors

t has been a pleasure working with the youth of Missouri. I truly believe in the benefit of showing livestock and the impact it makes on young people. Sam and I saw the need for the youth of Missouri to have opportunities for personal development through showing cattle and the Missouri Club Calf Association was born. It has become a great organization that allows kids across the state to assemble throughout the state of Missouri and compete. But more importantly, those kids develop friendships and personal development skills that will last a lifetime. As a former Agriculture teacher, I love watching kids grow and prosper and through my affiliation with the MCCA, I have had the chance to watch many kids involved with showing cattle do just that. As my daughter grows and is now more involved with the cattle and the farm, I am compelled to step down as an advisor of the MCCA and have more time to help her and give her the opportunities showing cattle and agriculture involvement offers. Thank you to each family that has participated, supported, and believed in the MCCA. We are turning over the association to very capable individuals who have had a pivotal role in its current success. I have total faith that they will lead the association in the right direction. See you at the next show! Michele Koelling

OKLAHOMA CLUB CALF ASSOCIATION

B

y the time you read this, the OCCA Beef Expo Show will be in the books. Our members have received their well-deserved awards and we have kicked off a new points year.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors and volunteers one more time. Without your support, this would not be possible. Summer is right around the corner and several of our members are getting ready to graduate high school. As for me, it has been an honor and pleasure to watch these young people grow up and mature. They are all class acts and represent our association with the integrity that can only be earned from many hours of hard work and dedication. We wish all of our seniors good luck in the future and look forward to what the next chapter in their lives has in store for them. For the rest of our members, make sure you have marked June 5th, 6th and 7th for the Junior Cattlemen’s Preview Show held at the Grady County Fairgrounds in Chickasha, Okla. This show will be the last one for before our summer break. I hope everyone has a fun and memorable summer; we look forward to seeing everyone on the show circuit in the fall. It has been a pleasure to serve as your president this past year. Until next time, Good luck to all and remember “It all starts before sunrise.” Sincerely, JAy GrOSSnICklAUS

Finding the Right Fit

Questions you should ask yourself include: • Do you desire a specific gender? With IVF technology, breeders now have the option to utilize reverse-sort technology. Almost all bulls can be used to create sexed semen in an IVF program. If no gender is preferred, breeders may choose a traditional ET or use a conventional IVF program.

• Does your donor have a production history in ET or IVF? Many breeders have found with donors that have not produced well in a traditional ET program, they are still able to capture those genetics by enrolling their donor in an IVF program. Breeders should consult with their provider about a donor’s history to determine the right program to ensure the best results.

recipients. Another option is to transfer resulting embryos into cooperator herd recipients. Speaking with your client service representative will help you determine the best choice for you. • Do you want to freeze your embryos? In addition to the options listed above for fresh transfer, today ET and IVF embryos can be frozen. This option allows delaying the transfer of embryos to match either the desired calving time, or the availability of recipients. The sale of ET and IVF embryos can be a very effective way to generate early revenue from a cow or heifer that was recently purchased. Frozen embryos can be transported across the country and internationally, so buyers from thousands of miles away can consider purchases without significant added costs. Also, it allows an interested buyer to sample multiple, different breeding programs with a fairly small upfront investment.

I try to find out what their goals are for their operation, or what their goals are for that specific donor.

• Is your donor pregnant? IVF can be performed on donors up to day 100-120 of pregnancy, which allows breeders to capture genetics while still allowing their donor to calve on time. • Are you looking to utilize rare or expensive semen? When used in an IVF program, a single straw of semen can be used to fertilize multiple donors. • Short time frame Short on time? Consider the timing differences between ET and IVF. ET procedures are performed every 45 to 60 days, while IVF procedures can be performed every week or every other week. • Do you have recipients available? Embryos resulting from both ET and IVF programs can be transferred fresh into your own recipients that are hauled-in for the procedure, or embryos can be transferred into recipients supplied by your provider. Embryos produced via IVF can also be shipped fresh to clients’ farms to be implanted into their own

• Where will the work be performed? Well-established ET and IVF providers, such as Trans Ova Genetics, offer the option of performing services in-center or on-farm, or at one of many satellite centers located across the U.S. In-Center work allows your donors to be monitored by skilled professionals that have years of experience in superovulation and synchronization, along with facilities that are equipped for low-stress handling and controlled laboratory environments. • Are you looking to “insure” your investments? A Genetic Preservation or Express Tissue Bank (ETB) is the simplest and most economical way to ensure your elite genetics are never lost. Storing the DNA on the best animals in your herd, or the whole herd, has never been easier. Through genetic preservation and cloning services, ViaGen, a division of Trans Ova, can ultimately provide the opportunity to make the irreplaceable…..replaceable. While this is certainly not an exclusive list of things to be considering, it may be a good place to start planning how you can reach those breeding goals.

COBA/Select Sires was selected as the premier large booth exhibitor; and Allflex, USA, Inc. was selected as the premier small booth exhibitor. Six breed shows and one breed parade were featured Friday, as well as numerous breed displays representing the Angus, Charolias, Chianina, Gelbvieh, Hereford, Limousin, Maine-Anjou, Miniature Hereford, Murray Grey, Simmental and Shorthorn breeds. The Genetic Pathway, in the upper hall of the Voinovich Livestock and Trade Center, had the industry’s most popular sires and donor prospects on display throughout the weekend. Seven breed sales brought in large crowds on Saturday, March 15, selling 270 lots with an average price of $3,500 and a gross of $1,013,440. Two recipients were honored with the Friend of the Expo Award for their contribution to the Expo’s annual success. Ginger Natolis, Marietta, Ohio, and Sally Puzacke, New Philadelphia, Ohio, were this year’s award recipients. Natolis is a long-time Murray Grey breeder who has participated every year of the Expo. At 85 years old, this was Ginger’s last year bringing cattle to the Expo, where she exhibited a cow/calf pair. Puzacke and her husband own Saltwell Western Store and exhibit in the Expo trade show. In 2011, they worked with the Ohio Cattlemen’s

Foundation to begin the Saltwell Western Store Scholarship, funded by a percentage of their sales generated through the official line of Expo clothing sold at Expo.

For junior exhibitors, Friday afternoon began with two fitting and clipping demonstrations and a welcome party. Events continued Saturday with 279 youth participating in the judging contest and 343 exhibitors in the showmanship competition. The stands were full in Rauch Arena for the Beef Quality Assurance training. The junior portion wrapped up Sunday with the market animal show and heifer show with a combined total of 692 head from across the state. During the event, OCA volunteers signed up and renewed more than 250 memberships including NCBA memberships. Any current or new OCA member had the opportunity to win some great prizes. During the prize drawing on Sunday in Rauch Arena, OCA member Jim Edwards, Oak Hill, Ohio, won a year’s use of a New Holland BR7060 Rotor baler, donated by Franklin Equipment. J&J Steakbarn, owned by Jim and Jackie Murray, gave away a $100 gift card won by Keith Sheridan, Cedarville, Ohio. Members joining at the Ohio Beef Expo also received discounted offerings on Heritage Cooperative’s Cattlemen’s Edge Program and the first 100 to join or renew received gift packs donated by OCA’s Allied Industry Council partners. Highland County won the County Affiliate Recruitment Contest drawing and received their choice of a grill, set of TruTest Scales or an equal amount toward National Cattlemen’s Beef Association convention registration, sponsored by the Ohio Corn Marketing Program. The dates for the 2015 Ohio Beef Expo are March 20-22. Visit www. ohiobeefexpo.com for more information as well as complete coverage of the 2014 event.

hronic Wasting Disease DetecteD for first time in WilD ioWa Deer

T

he first case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in a wild Iowa deer has been confirmed, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The deer was reported as harvested in Allamakee County during the first shotgun season in early December. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is currently working to obtain as much information as possible about the infected deer to implement its CWD response plan. “We have been testing for CWD in Iowa’s deer herd for more than a decade and are optimistic, given the extensive data we have collected, that we have caught this early,” said Chuck Gipp, DNR director. “The next step will be to focus our monitoring efforts in the area where the animal was harvested and work closely with local landowners and hunters to gather more information.” said Gipp. CWD is a neurological disease affecting primarily deer and elk. It is caused by an abnormal protein, called a prion that attacks the brains of infected animals, causing them to lose weight, display abnormal behavior and lose bodily functions. Signs include excessive salivation, thirst and urination, loss of appetite, progres-

We have been testing for cWD in iowa’s deer herd for more than a decade and are optimistic, given the extensive data we have collected, that we have caught this early,

sive weight loss, listlessness and drooping ears and head. The only reliable test for CWD requires testing of lymph nodes or brain material.

There is currently no evidence that humans can contract CWD by eating venison. However, the National Institute of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that hunters do not eat the brain, eyeballs or spinal cord of deer and that hunters wear protective gloves while field dressing game and boning out meat for consumption. Prior to the positive detection in Iowa, CWD had been detected in every bordering state. “With CWD in all the states around us, we have understood the possibility of a positive detection in the wild deer herd for some time” said Gipp. Since 2002, the DNR has collected more than 650 samples of deer from within a five-mile radius of where the deer is believed to have been harvested. – Iowa DNR

With the show season in full swing, I think we can often forget why we show in the first place. While exhibiting cattle can teach Arkansas Junior Cattleman’s Association members leadership and responsibility, showing also allows us to learn how the beef industry works as well as promoting it in a positive light. For no apparent reason in some circles of today’s world, agriculture and the beef industry seem to be frowned upon. While the adversaries of our industry constantly point out “flaws” in not only the process of how we harvest our product but the use of antibiotics and even methane emissions, we as beef producers need to put the rumors to rest. We must ensure to our consumers that beef is one of the safest and healthiest proteins you can consume. I believe the main reason for the consumer’s hostility towards the industry is simply due to a lack of education. Cattlemen and junior cattlemen alike can “start with the basics” When I say “start with the basics” I mean that promoting the beef industry doesn’t have to be on a large scale! We can promote beef in our schools, workplaces, and communities. However, in order for us to “start with the basics” we must be educated ourselves. Through organizations such as the state and junior cattlemen’s associations, 4-H, FFA and junior breed associations, we can do just that. There are many great resources available both online and in print to help educate you on things you should say to highlight the positive aspects of our product and beef industry. The first place I recommend starting is with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association or www.beefusa.org or www.beef.org. Being the ONLY student at my high school of 4,150 students who shows cattle, I am constantly faced with an opportunity to promote the beef industry. It can sometimes be challenging in my school environment to promote the benefits of eating beef. I always strive to stand by my convictions and feel strongly that this industry deserves the extra effort that it takes to promote it positively. Although I may be in the minority at my school, I am comforted by the fact that many students in my school do enjoy eating beef and want to learn more about the various components of our industry. Through the hard work of the junior livestock exhibitors and livestock families we can ensure that the beef industry has a bright future for many years to come.
