Naturally Healthy Hair ... HOW? Fresh and Natural, Hocus Pocus will not irritate hair or hide. This natural product is a healthy alternative that will make a difference in your show day wash out. Hocus Pocus will not leave an oily residue to build up heat or eat away leg hair. The pure ingredients of Hocus Pocus are formulated to naturally attack and gently remove adhesives and touch-ups away from the hair to allow for superior cleaning. Hocus Pocus is fortified with non-drying emollients and nourishing antioxidant VITA HAIR™ vitamins to naturally moisturize and soften the hair shaft. VITA HAIR™ will rejuvenate your skin and hair. Most importantly being natural, Hocus Pocus is purified to be free of harsh abrasives, caustic chemicals, carcinogens, or corrosives that could burn or damage the hair and skin. Hocus Pocus is quite simply, the only adhesive remover that naturally nourishes the skin & hair.

For the future of your leg hair quality and hide health there is only one option.

Infused with VITA HAIR™ nourishing vitamin package. HELPFUL HINTS: • After spraying Hocus Pocus and combing through hair, blow product out with a blow dryer for much easier washing. • When heavy adhesives and touch-ups are used, allow Hocus Pocus to set in hair for 5 minutes before combing. • If not showing the next day, apply Revive to moisturize and rejuvenate those areas that were fitted with adhesives.

Congratulations Kolby Shepard

Grand Champion Heifer 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo

SHOWMASTER® feeds have been a great assest to our program. We have been extremely pleased with the performance consistency. It is always great to have a product where the last bag is as good as the first. In addition, there is no other hair supplement like FLAIR®. It not only keeps the rumen function efficently, but is excellent for hair coat and skin condition. It has been a great addition to our feeding program to keep our calves looking their freshest. – Jason Shepard, Perkins, OK

“A picture tells a thousand words. We’ve owned some of the Simmental breeds greatest sires, but we believe with all our hearts that JF American Pride 0987X is the most special animal we have ever had the chance to be a part of, it is as simple as that. We’re not selling “semen packages” or have any marketing gimmicks on this bull, just straight up selling semen to help better our breed and the cattle industry. Please take time to view the video and discover he is the soundest made, biggest bellied, most attractive Purebred Simmental ever to walk. His performance and eye appeal set him a part, we welcome your calls to discuss American Pride. We would like to give a special thanks to Jack McCoy of Meadow Springs Farm, Lafayette, Indiana for selling us this remarkable bull and his powerful dam and to Jeff Miller, Cutler, Indiana for pointing us in his direction!”

While progressive breeders have been incorporating embryo transfer (ET) into their breeding programs for many years, the technology of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is becoming a popular and wide-spread method of producing more embryos from elite donor females as well as utilizing expensive or rare semen. As the application of IVF technology continues to grow, it is important to bring IVF technology even closer to the farm. Fresh IVF embryo shipment allows just that. Fresh IVF embryos are packaged in a culture solution and placed into portable incubators. These portable incubators keep the embryos at the appropriate temperature, and are shipped via Fed Ex, UPS, or courier to a client’s farm, where they can utilize their own recipients to gestate embryos created by IVF technology. While this will require additional management by the client, the ability to utilize their own recipients can make the technology more cost effective. In addition, fresh IVF embryo shipment programs allow the client to continue working with their local embryo transfer provider for the synchronization of recipients and implantation of the embryos. Results with fresh IVF embryo shipment programs have been excellent. For example, to date Trans Ova Genetics has shipped thousands of embryos through the company’s Fresh Ship program, with no decrease in pregnancy rate when compared to IVF embryos that are not shipped.

How does it work? Donor cows or heifers must be aspirated at a genetics facility that offers IVF services. Donors may be housed at those facilities or set up at home and brought in for the procedure. Your provider can assist in scheduling the synchronization of the recipients and will indicate the heat dates that are acceptable for use. At least one day prior to the embryos being shipped, clients need to communicate the number of recipient candidates to their genetics company. Plans can be discussed at that time for handling a situation where there are more embryos than recipients. Depending on availability, there may be the option to utilize the company’s recipients if there are excess embryos, or potentially freeze some of the high-quality embryos. On day 6 after fertilization (one week after oocytes are collected), embryos will be evaluated and viable embryos will be packaged for transportation in portable incubators. On day 7 after fertilization (eight days after oocytes are collected), clients will receive the incubator with the fresh embryos inside. Their local practitioner can then unload and evaluate the embryos. IVF embryos are classified and graded, loaded for implant and transferred into recipient cows just like a conventional ET embryo would be at this point. Fresh IVF embryo shipment offers greater flexibility for breeders seeking to utilize the advantages of IVF technology while using their own recipients. This has helped make IVF an accessible, costeffective option for breeders throughout the country.

Showmanship Points by Division Oklahoma Club Calf Association - March 2012

With the Oklahoma Youth Expo over, the point year is finished. Congratulations to all the winners. It was a long and tough year, but I hope it was all worth it to all of the exhibitors. BEEF Expo is right around the corner, this will be the first show of the new year. Looking forward to seeing all the new faces and the new show calves. Don’t forget the banquet on Saturday night, April 21. If you are receiving an award you need to be there; don’t forget to bring your family with you. Last year, the kids could not carry all of their awards. It is a wonderful sight to see show trailers going home with awards falling out the back. Again, we want to thank our Platinum Sponsors: CM Trailers, Purina, Cinch and Curl Girl. With out you guys we would not be able to make this happen. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and the website for your points. See you at BEEF Expo! Safe travels and good luck at the shows

Nowhere else in America has bred or been home to more celebrated and influential sires than the historic K-bar ranch.

American Idol is destined to carry on that legacy. Displayed and pictured at 16 months of age during 2012 National Western Stock Show. Overheard in the yards…. “With this bull you know what you’re getting! He’s grown and not a cute little fuzz ball.” “It’s fun to sell them things high with crazy hair in September, but it’s a better deal to get your picture taken the following August.”

“Cause of his odd age folks walked right past him, he doesn’t look like a little club calf, and that’s OK……. Those guys not using him will be easier to beat.”

“When dean Kephart brings one to denver, folks better pay attention!” “He’s the size you will show his calves at as fat steers, he’s big butted, sound with belly. That’s ninety percent of the battle. Fat steers that look like him Win!” “AmericAN idOl has his sires look and hair with more shape, plus has that big barrel rib from Freestyle…You know these things will be chubby and easY to sell.” “I’ve been looking for two years for one with this kind of thickness that was still sound.”

It’s not about winning. It’s not about competing. It’s not even always about the cattle. It’s about the friends you meet and the memories made. The people and experiences that touch your life. Some of our dearest friends are people we met in the cattle world. We lost one of them along the way, but we will never forget her. Our son, Cody, purchased a steer (Po) last year through Jeremy Clark’s sale. Po had been raised by the Keene Family in Wisconsin. Mrs. Keene succombed to cancer not long after Po was born, but her family kept in touch with us throughout the steer’s show career, wanting to know how he was doing and always congratulating Cody on his winnings. Cody’s MeMe is now fighting her own battle with cancer. Many families have struggled with illness, financial burdens, accidents, and more. But remember to appreciate the lessons learned along the way and lean on your friends and family. It’s not the awards or the acommplishments that matter...

...it’s the climb Kris Keene 1963-2010

Building a Better Beef Business a look at Cattle VisioNs

Cattle Visions, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, is at the forefront of providing beef producers with cutting-edge genetics in 15 different breed types backed by personalized customer service.

the Iraq war hadn’t begun yet; the Department of Homeland Security was newly created; Enron and other corporate scandals headlined the news; Eminem just released “8Mile,” the movie and soundtrack; Wynona Ryder was

convicted for shoplifting that year and our federal deficit was still in the billions era. In 2002, a new semen company was also born – one that aspired to improve beef genetics, satisfy customer needs and help hard-working beef producers get more value out of their A.I. programs. Initially, two former co-workers with years of experi-

Lance and Wendy Ellsworth

ence together in another company were leasing bulls and selling semen out of their two homes. Carl Newbrough had the semen tanks at his house and shipped orders from there; Patty Helmka had the 800 number at hers where she leased bulls and took the orders. Their arrangement worked for several months this way. Enter a third former co-worker who had years of experience under his belt working for and even co-founding other A.I. companies, Lance Ellsworth, who was ready to go out on his own. A partnership was born and Cattle Visions was launched with headquarters in Columbia, MO. Patty Helmka

Having worked together for three years already, Ellsworth and Newbrough, who both grew up in the beef cattle business, had similar philosophies about the A.I. industry and thought they could build a better business model – one that focused on beef instead of dairy, as many other companies functioned. These days, their company is a pioneer in web-based semen marketing (in coordination with EDJE Technologies) and lists hundreds of bulls in its roster with more than 200 independent sales representatives in the field. “I still consider us a relatively new company,” Ellsworth says. “We’ve prioritized the majority of our investment in buildings and semen tanks so far. We don’t own too many of the bulls, but we have seen a benefit to investing in some of the elite bulls that we feel comfortable having our stamp on. Customer service is our top priority, as is convenience of bull availability. We are, in my opinion, very honest in our appraisal of genetics, which I think is a rare quality in this business. “When I get a direct call (from a semen buyer), I like to find out where they are going with their program,” he explains. “I ask them about what is working and what isn’t. Then I like to provide a short list of options that would be beneficial to them. I think they appreciate that personal attention.” Part of Ellsworth’s responsibilities at Cattle Visions includes studying the genetics and trends in every breed so they can recruit the right bulls for the lineup, as well as know those bulls well enough to advise their customers on which sires will give them what they are specifically looking for to meet their breeding goals. “A lot of breeders out there are followers, in that they will gravitate toward the hot bulls with the right pedigree. Then there are some breeders that try to produce the next great outcross-type sire,” he says. “I enjoy the challenge of seeking out both of those things. “We strive to do our homework and keep our products at the forefront of the seedstock business, making sure that we can offer the leading sires that are going to be in demand. It’s not easy,” Ellsworth explains. “I see 90 percent of the animals in our lineup, and I can tell you what traits you can expect. For example, some bulls are sounder than others, etc. But the bull has to be good to start with. Sometimes, the better bulls aren’t necessarily the one that are promoted as much, and I try to make it part of

234 April 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

my job to tell the public about them.” Though he jokes that it’s caused him to “pull all his hair out,” all the behind-the-scenes work is also probably one of the reasons that Cattle Visions is a prime source where club calf breeders go to get the best in multi-breed genetics. “I love it when our customers report their success stories back to us,” he adds. “In fact, I can’t imagine doing anything else. What I like about my job is the fact that my whole life and background have gone into this business, from raising cattle to studying animal science and ag journalism at the University of Wisconsin, to judging on a livestock team. It is a perfect fit.” Carl Newbrough laughingly says his part of the business is at the south end of a cow. Newbrough, also, raises cattle and has a practical understanding of producers’ challenges on the farm to implement A.I. and synchronization protocol. Well-known in Missouri, where he provides on-the-farm A.I. services to

both purebred and commercial breeders, Newbrough leads the sought-after A.I. schools that Cattle Visions operates several times a year in the Columbia office. He attended A.I. school back in 1970, when people who knew how to A.I. were very few and far between and commercial cattlemen wouldn’t touch it. Ironically, Newbrough got his start in the A.I. business because he wanted to improve his calves so that his daughter could be more competitive in the show ring. Once he started using A.I., not only did his daughter start winning more, he also started getting calls from neighbors to A.I. some cows for them. “Eventually, I realized I needed to start charging for it, and things just blossomed from there,” he explains. “I stayed independent for a

long time, even though I had offers to go work for some of the big companies. I did finally go to work for a company called Genetic Horizons, where I worked with Patty and also met Lance.” Nowadays, Patty is the office manager for Cattle Visions and Newbrough gives credit for a lot of the company’s success to her. “She’s just the greatest. I probably wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her. It’s been a team deal from the get-go. Sales have increased over time, and we’ve been lucky to be pretty successful, I guess. We have good employees and we do use a lot of part-time help – mainly college kids.” If you call into Cattle Visions to order semen or an A.I. certificate, the friendly voice you hear on the other end of the phone probably belongs to Heather Dodd, customer service representative. Dodd has been with the company for three years. During his 40 years in the business, Newbrough has seen a lot of change as it relates to the use of A.I. technology. “Synchronization didn’t exist back then; it was all done by heat detection,” he says. “Embryo transfer was only done thru surgery, now it’s all done by flushing, and that’s a good thing. There’s already a lot of it, but I think we’ll see more and more flushing in the future. “To me, it has always made sense for everybody to use A.I. You know, farmers are hardheaded,” he says with a chuckle. “But you hit them with something in the pocketbook and they get it. Today, it’s a whole different ballgame. You have to use better, proven genetics to get top dollar. Just turning any old common bull out doesn’t work anymore. “We get a lot of calls at the office and people coming in to ask about how it works,” Newbrough says. “The hardest part for a commercial producer is the extra work, management and nutrition. With seedstock breeders, nutrition (meaning cows being too thin to breed) isn’t usually a problem. But for people who don’t understand the nutritional aspect involved, there can be some disappointment when they don’t get the conception rates they read about in a book. Not always, but in some cases it happens.”


between the pages In terms of teaching folks about synchronization protocol, Newbrough shares the two protocols that he’s seen success with, but is sure to give folks all of their options so they can choose whatever protocol they think will work best at home. If you ever get the chance to meet Carl in person, I suspect he could tell you a good many stories about all the people he’s taught to A.I. cattle over the last 40 years. He has taught boys and girls as young as 13, a good many wives who were sent to A.I. school by their husbands “because their hands were smaller,” (he chuckles at that excuse) a number of retirees who are new to the cattle business and everything in between.

“You can learn at whatever age you want to learn,” Newbrough states emphatically, adding that being willing to listen and set your ego aside helps, too. With the first decade of Cattle Vision’s success under their belt, Ellsworth and Newbrough are still dreaming of bigger and better for their company. For his part, Ellsworth believes there is huge growth potential for A.I. in all segments of the beef cattle business “With today’s cattle prices, it will easily be the biggest year for A.I.,” he says. “I think the number of beef producers currently using A.I. is only something like 6 percent. With branded beef programs like Certified Angus Beef®, premiums and demand for the type of cattle that can meet their requirements are at an all-time high. Through the use of A.I., cow-calf producers can easily access the genetics to meet branded beef requirements. I believe more pro-

ducers using Angus genetics, even commercial breeders, will be using A.I. “In the club calf segment, demand for A.I. sires has never been hotter! Even in the seedstock business, nearly every breeder ought to be using A.I. sires for the added value of EPDs and the other information they can utilize. There is value to be gained in every segment.” From Newbrough’s perspective (who lost his wife of 55 years just last year), the business has been good to him and his family, and it’s something he’s always loved to do. “It’s always fun, always a challenge,” he says. “It’s a good feeling at the end of the day to know you’ve accomplished the task. The cattle business is here to stay and people will always eat beef. You get tired of chicken! But it’s also a people business. You meet a lot of fine people in this business. I wouldn’t change anything about it.”

nderstanding Trace Minerals and Beef Cattle

Professor To Producer

Producers have long known the benefits of adding mineral supplements to cattle diets. Traditional mineral supplementation has been achieved with inorganic mineral sources. Within the last two decades, science and technology have allowed organic mineral sources to be utilized. Accordingly, some feed manufacturers and distributors now recommend the use of these more expensive organic minerals. Most of the organic minerals marketed are classified as metal complexes, chelates or proteinates. In abbreviated form, by definition: “A metal amino acid complex is the product resulting from the complex of a soluble metal salt with an amino acid. A metal chelate is the product resulting from the reaction of a metal ion with an amino acid in covalent bonding. A metal proteinate is the product resulting from the chelation of a soluble mineral salt with amino acids or partially hydrolyzed protein” Basically organic minerals cost more because of the increased cost of manufacturing them. Typically feed companies justify the increased cost because complexed, chelated or proteinated minerals have supposedly greater biological availability. I use the word supposedly because some products marketed as chelates or proteinates have claims of effectiveness that are still being evaluated. In addition, the term bioavailability is often used incorrectly. In reference to minerals, bioavailability can be defined as the proportion of the ingested element that is absorbed (digested), transported to its site of action and converted to a physiologically active form. Therefore, bioavailability implies not only absorption, but also utilization of the mineral for a specific function. Absorption of mineral elements is often a major limitation of their utilization by the animal. Clearly some commercial products containing organic minerals (chelated minerals) are recognized as effective. However, an increase in bioavailability of a mineral will generally not justify the cost of a chelated element. There must also be an accompanying improvement in performance or animal safety from element toxicity in order to justify the additional cost. So, what are minerals? Minerals are defined as solid, crystalline substances with a definite chemical composition (copper, zinc, manganese, etc.). Minerals come from the earth as both metal and non-metallic elements. They must be utilized as natural elements of nature. There are seven macro minerals (Ca, Cl, Na, K, P, Mg, S) and 10 trace minerals (Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, F, I, Mn, Mo, Se, Zn), required for animal life. All minerals are elements, but not all elements are minerals. For example limestone, (CaCO3 – calcium carbonate) is a mineral that nutritionists use as a source of calcium (an element required by cattle).

Why are minerals important? Every system in the body is dependent upon various elements to function properly. The immune, reproductive, hormone, digestive, nervous and skeletal systems are all affected by minerals. Four elements (Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen) comprise 96 percent of the body’s makeup. Muscle is composed of CHON, S and P. Fat is composed of CHO and some P. Bone is primarily Ca and P. The remaining 4 percent of the body is composed of other elements. Why the need for mineral supplementation? There are mineral deficiencies in common feedstuffs. The only way for animals to receive sufficient elements for optimum production is through mineral supplementation. How are elements absorbed into the body? Inorganic and chelated minerals are absorbed by the body differently. Inorganic minerals are absorbed in the first part of the small intestine where the digesta is very acidic. Metal Amino Acid Chelates are absorbed later in the small intestine after the point where bile is introduced. Chelates are then carried across the intestinal walls in a similar process as amino acids (the building blocks of protein). As a result, Metal Amino Acid Chelates are up to 600 percent more bioavailable than their inorganic minerals counterparts. Many inorganic elements are poorly absorbed ranging from 40 percent to 80 percent absorption. Generally, chelated minerals have a higher absorption rate than the elements inorganic form. Should only chelated minerals or only inorganic minerals be used in cattle diets? Producers can use either chelated minerals or inorganic minerals. Some nutritionists recommend that producers use a combination of both chelated and inorganic minerals to take advantage of the differences in absorption sites between chelated and inorganic minerals to complete an animal’s nutritional requirements. Why can’t a producer just feed more inorganic mineral to address a specific element deficiency? Why is there value for including a chelated mineral? Another important aspect of mineral supplementation is the fact that the cheapest mineral mixture may not be the least expensive mineral mixture. Most low-cost inorganic mineral supplements contain minerals in the oxide form. Generally Continued on Page 243

ways to save on gas money

no.

25

Have your car tuned regularly. An engine tune-up can improve car fuel economy by an average of one mile per gallon.

no.

24

Keep tires properly inflated. Underinflated tires can decrease fuel economy by up to one mile per gallon.

no.

23

Slow down. The faster you drive, the more gasoline your car uses. Driving at 65 miles per hour rather than 55 miles per hour reduces fuel economy by about two miles per gallon.

no.

22

Avoid jackrabbit starts. Abrupt starts require about twice as much gasoline as gradual starts.

no.

21

no.

20

Use your air conditioner sparingly. The use of air conditioning can reduce fuel economy by as much as two miles per gallon under certain speeds and operating conditions.

19

Avoid lengthy engine idling. Turn your engine off when you are delayed for more than a couple of minutes.

no.

no.

18

8

no.

7

Pace your driving. Unnecessary speedups, slowdowns and stops can decrease fuel economy by up to two miles per gallon. Stay alert and drive steadily, not erratically. Keep a reasonable, safe distance from the car ahead of you and anticipate traffic conditions.

Plan your trips carefully. Combine short trips into one to do all your errands. Avoid traveling during rush hours if possible, to reduce fuelconsumption patterns such as starting and stopping and numerous idling periods. Consider joining a car pool (trailer pool anyone?)

no.

17

Check gas prices online or with a smartphone app like GasBuddy.

no.

16

Put the car on a diet. Remove unused luggage, bicycle or ski racks and other extra weight. (Hay bales, extra feed, show boxes, etc.)

no.

15

Skip premium fuel. Usually it’s only recommended not required.

14

Join the club. Consider joining a warehouse club for the gasoline benefits.

no.

13

Use a gas card or pay cash. Major gas brands provide cash-back bonuses for gasoline purchases.

no.

12

Brake the right way. Ease off the gas as needed instead of braking hard.

no.

11

Use cruise control when appropriate.

no.

10

Park in the shade. Besides less wear on your a/c, you also reduce the amount of fuel that evaporates.

no.

9

no.

no.

Don’t top off, especially in the summer. The gas is stored underground where it is cool. When you top off, some gas will spill out of your tank as it warms up.

According to Mythbusters, dropping the tailgate on a pickup truck generally will not improve your gas mileage. In fact, it will usually reduce it. From an auto industry insider: “Fuel brand is extremely important! Buy your fuel only at the ‘Top Tier’ rated retailers (Chevron, Shell, Unocal, and Texaco). I have been involved with several precisely controlled tests where discount fuels (specifically ARCO, Costco, USA Brand, among a half dozen others) were compared to the 4 ‘Top Tier’ brand fuels and the difference in savings is astonishing. The reason for this is not because of the additional fuel cleaning additives, it is because the discount fuels are less expensive (per gallon) than the Top Tier fuels because of their higher ethanol content (generally 9.5% to 10.5% for the discount fuels and only 8% to 9% with the Top Tier fuels) allowing the discount fuels to have a lower pump price due to a greater tax incentive for using a higher percentage of ethanol. (FYI: My local fireman also says these cheaper fuels make it very hard to put out your car if it is on fire.)

Specific ideas for livestock show people: no.

6

Double up on shows. Have two shows at the same location on the same weekend.

no.

5

For junior nationals and similar shows, hire a hauler to take cattle for a group to a distant location and either fly in the family or travel in caravans that can cut down on the number of vehicles driven.

no.

4

If showing in a circuit for points, carefully map out the most efficient way to get the most points – i.e. go to the biggest shows with the most points available instead of every little dog and pony show put on.

no.

3

Keep generators out of the sun. Use tarps to create shade where there is none.

no.

2

Walk to the barn instead of driving back and forth, if it’s a little ways from your house.

Don’t go home between shows. Consider this summer your “Tour” season. Bum a place to stay and something to eat from friends who live near the next show. “Borrow” some hay and feedTwitter and show Delicious Flickr supplies while you’re at it. It’ll prepare you for college life.

no.

a good read

Nops Trials by DonalD Mccaig Read it and weep. “Nops Trials,” considered a classic, is the rare novel whose poignant tale will haunt you long after you’ve read it. The two main characters, a man and his dog, endure way more than their fair share of troubles and there are sections in this book that will make any grown up who’s ever loved a dog just sob at the cruelty inflicted by others. It’s worth sharing their pain, however, because the love and deep devotion between this farmer and his Border Collie are equally powerful. McCaig gives you insight into what each is thinking, even developing a special language for the dogs to speak to each other, so that you can truly appreciate to the special connection between the dog and his master. Lewis Burkholder is a livestock farmer, which is all he ever wanted to be. Having shown sheep and cattle as a young man, Lewis is now a soon-to-be grandfather who loves his family, his land, livestock and competing in dog trials. Nop is a young, intelligent and very talented Border Collie who lives to work the “woolies” as he calls them and please Lewis. On Christmas Day, Nop is stolen and thus begins a heart-breaking adventure that takes him further and further away from his beloved Lewis and into all kinds of danger. As Lewis relentlessly searches for his beloved dog, facing down thugs and getting on the wrong side of the law himself, he also has to reconcile himself with some painful things in his own life that have distanced him from his family. McCaig’s story is as suspenseful as it is moving and the reader won’t know what to expect until the very end.

our take: I usually love to read good books over and over, but this is one that I’ll probably only read once because it just touches a raw nerve

about unnecessary suffering in this world, for both animals and humans. Having said that, I am so glad I did read it at least once. McCaig has a knack for capturing familiar rural traditions and sentiment in ways that are both comforting and compelling. His characters will undoubtedly remind you of someone you know – and either admire or despise. “Nop’s Trials” is simply unforgettable.

worth watching Billed as “The Inspirational True Story of Richard Wallrath,” this movie was made for two reasons: 1) to help alcoholics and the spouses and children of alcoholics and 2) support scholarship endowments for Texas FFA and 4-H youth. Even if you aren’t a Texan, however, “Deep in the Heart” is worth your time if you get the opportunity to watch it, because it is about us – those of us with imperfect families, those of us who realize the importance of youth programs and those of us whose faith gets them through whatever life brings us. The film was first rolled out in Texas, and depending on its success may play in other areas, but will also be released on DVD eventually. It is the life story of Richard “Dick” Wallrath, “whose personal demons caused him to hit rock bottom. After losing everything – job, family and hope – Richard found the strength through faith that made him realize a strong family and the love of his children were the measure of a man’s suc-

cess. With his sons, he went on to build a successful business (Champion Windows) and used his success to become the largest single individual benefactor of Texas 4-H and FFA, providing educational scholarships. Wallrath is well-known for purchasing show steers at the Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Houston and Austin livestock shows, setting record prices and making it possible for hundreds of kids to go to college. At Houston alone, he is said to have donated more than $3.5 million. His foundation annually awards 140 scholarships in the amount of $10,000 each to deserving FFA and 4-H kids in his home state. They are given in honor of his late daughter, Deede. Altogether, his donations to the education of Texas kids involved in agriculture add up to $5 million and counting. Why give back specifically through FFA and 4-H? In a video on the movie’s official website (deepintheheartmovie.com), Wallrath explains: “FFA students are all taught about honesty, integrity and decency, things I believe in myself.” “It was great; a very inspiring and heart-warming movie about trials and tribulations. I highly recommend this movie, especially to those involved in the show industry, 4-H and FFA!” says guest reviewer Breann Pritchard, education and special programs coordinator at Beefmaster Breeders United.

S

even Steps to Reach Your Retirement Goals With Tax Day looming, take measures now to maximize savings and secure your finances for the future.

In these days of market volatility and tax uncertainty, you need to make sure you’re doing all you can to make the most of your retirement savings. Here are seven actions to take before April 17 to maximize your retirement strategy. 1. Contribute to an IRA to maximize your savings A key way to build your retirement savings is to continue contributing to your IRA. You have until April 17, 2012, to make your 2011 IRA contribution of as much as $6,000.1 At the same time, you can make your 2012 contribution of an additional $6,000,1 allowing a year or more of additional growth potential on your contribution. The advantages of contributing to your IRA include: • Earnings with tax-deferred growth potential. • Potentially tax-deductible contributions (subject to IRS eligibility rules). • Access to a wide array of investment options.

Business Minded

2. Set up automatic contributions for investing ease. There’s no chance you’ll forget to make a contribution when it’s done automatically for you. With the Funds Transfer Service, you can set up an automatic IRA contribution schedule for your 2011 contribution and for future years. It’s a fast, free and flexible service that lets you make IRA contributions through electronic transfers from your other financial accounts. You can either set up a one-time transfer or establish a recurring schedule to make your IRA contributions over time.Once you specify the dates and amounts, your funds will transfer as scheduled. 3. Diversify your savings to better manage taxes in retirement. No one knows what the tax future holds. Diversifying your retirement assets among tax-free, tax-deferred and taxable accounts may help you reduce your exposure to future tax increases and provide greater flexibility for managing your income stream in retirement. If you have only 401(k) or tax-deferred IRA assets, now may be a good time to put some money into a taxable or Roth IRA. (If all your retirement assets go into tax-deferred retirement accounts, you’ll owe taxes on every cent you withdraw.) As far as tax-free (tax-deductible) investments go: If your income is too high to take advantage of tax-free contribution opportunities, you can still contribute to your IRA with a taxable (nondeductible) contribution and continue to build your savings. 4. Invest in a Roth IRA for a tax-free future. If you’re someone who feels strongly that you will remain in a high tax bracket in retirement and that taxes will inevitably go up, consider putting more of your savings into a Roth IRA and benefit from tax-free income in retirement. Roth IRA assets will one day provide either tax-free income to you in retirement or a tax-free inheritance for your beneficiaries.2 Roth assets enjoy tax-free growth potential, and withdrawals are

242 April 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

typically tax-free.2 A Roth IRA also offers additional advantages: • Income planning flexibility. With a traditional IRA, at age 70½ you must stop contributing and begin taking minimum distributions, even if you’re still earning income. With a Roth, however, there is no contribution cutoff—provided income requirements are met—and no rule about when you must begin tapping into the account. Roth assets have the potential to grow as long as you want, allowing you to make withdrawals as needed or forgo them altogether. • Wealth transfer advantages. If the assets in your IRA are not needed to fund your retirement, a Roth IRA can be an effective wealth planning tool for beneficiaries. They can enjoy continued asset growth potential and won’t have to pay taxes when they withdraw the assets. Because of income limitations, not everyone can contribute to a Roth. But anyone can convert to a Roth—so if you have savings in a traditional IRA or an employer plan, consider converting all or a portion of those assets. To help you determine whether a Roth conversion is right for you, talk to your tax advisor regarding your tax situation and ask your financial advisor to prepare a Roth Conversion Analysis. 5. Review your beneficiaries for smooth wealth transfer. If your life has undergone any changes that could influence who inherits your retirement savings, now is a good time to conduct a beneficiary review with your financial advisor. Review all your accounts to make sure the savings you’re building now will be transferred according to your wishes. Remember that beneficiary designations on an IRA supersede a will. Also, if you converted an account into a Roth IRA, your beneficiary designations may not have carried over. Check with your financial advisor to make sure your beneficiary information is aligned. 6. Rebalance for asset allocation alignment. Your overall investment strategy helps dictate your asset allocation strategy. Markets change, and investments shift in value. To prevent inadvertently taking on more (or less) risk than you’re prepared to, your retirement savings shouldn’t be weighted too heavily in any direction. Remain within your risk tolerance by rebalancing your retirement asset allocation so that it’s properly aligned with your investment strategy. Work with your financial advisor to rebalance on a regular basis. 7. Consolidate accounts for greater control over investment direction. If you’re like most people, you have retirement savings scattered among several different financial institutions and several different kinds of accounts. That means your retirement money may not be working as efficiently for you as it could be. This is especially the case if you have money sitting in former employers’ 401(k) accounts that are experiencing underwhelming performance or are not aligned with your current retirement strategy.


One retirement account with different investment vehicles working together is much easier to keep track of than several disparate accounts. Plus, consolidating all your retirement savings in one place—and into an IRA that provides a wide variety of investment options—lends you greater control over how your money is working for your future. It’s especially important to consider consolidating retirement accounts if you’ve recently changed jobs or if your employer has merged with another company or gone out of business. Review all your assets with your financial advisor, who can develop a retirement strategy specific to your needs. That way, you can help ensure that your retirement savings are working in tandem with your retirement strategy. 1 Maximum contributions for a taxpayer under age 50 is $5,000. This limit is for all of your IRAs combined, so please take that into account when calculating your contributions. 2 Distributions of earnings are tax-free if made at least five years after the year of the taxpayer’s first Roth IRA contribution and after age 59½ or due to death or disability or for a first-time home purchase. Withdrawals of contributions are not taxed.

If you already have a traditional IRA with pretax dollars (i.e., deductible contributions or rollovers from qualified plans), you should consult with your tax advisor about the aggregation rules that will apply if you convert any traditional IRA assets to a Roth IRA. Asset allocation, diversification and rebalancing do not ensure a profit or protect against loss in declining financial markets. There may be a potential tax implication with a rebalancing strategy. Please consult with your tax advisor before implementing such a strategy. Tax laws are complex and subject to change.

Professor to Producer - Continued from Page 236 speaking, oxides are less absorbable than sulfates or carbonates. The mere fact that a mineral mixture contains the appropriate chemical level of the specific element does not guarantee that the animal can effectively utilize that form of the (element) mineral. In problem situations, there also, may be benefit in providing mineral chelates or proteinates. However, mineral chelates and proteinates are expensive compared to oxides, sulfates and carbonates. Adding additional elemental inorganic minerals can cause significant antagonistic activities between minerals. For example, if a producer adds too much Copper Sulfate to the diet it can result in Copper toxicity issues or a decrease in rumen bacterial populations. With the formation of an electrically neutral chelate, mineral antagonism does not occur. This is the result of stabilization of the element with glycine (an amino acid). In summary, proper mineral supplementation may be just as important as energy and protein nutrition to maintain optimum beef cattle production. Providing a well-fortified mineral supplement to cattle should be at the foundation of any reproductive management program for beef cows. Generally inorganic mineral supplementation will be adequate. However, under intensive, high production, cattle under stress from activities such as embryo transfer, superovulation and flushing, high growth rate, superior milk production, prolonged show-road travel, weaning stress, etc. may respond to chelated mineral supplementation.

his Could Be The Year for Grass Tetany

By Dr. Dave Sparks, DVM - Oklahoma State University Area Extension Food Animal Quality and Health Specialist

Grass tetany is a serious and often fatal metabolic disease caused by low blood levels of magnesium. It is also known as grass staggers or wheat pasture poisoning. It most commonly affects older cows early in lactation, but it may also occur in any cattle. It occurs most commonly when cattle are grazing lush, immature grass and it often affects the best cows in the herd. It is typically a late winter or early spring problem coinciding with the rapid growth of cool season grasses. Across much of Oklahoma this winter, anyone would have a hard time classifying pastures as “lush” but don’t let the first look fool you. In many pastures, the old growth from last summer is gone and cattle are eating almost exclusively new green growth. Recent temperature and moisture conditions are conducive to rapid growth of the cool-season grasses and I have already heard of several herds experiencing dead or down cows with low blood magnesium levels. High levels of nitrogen fertilization reduce magnesium availability, especially in soils that are high in potassium or aluminum. While in veterinary practice in northwest Arkansas, we always expected to see multiple grass tetany cases when the fescue started rapid growth after application of poultry litter. In western Oklahoma, it is common in cows grazing wheat pasture when moderate temperatures are combined with high levels of nitrogen application.

Signs of grass tetany begin with an uncoordinated gait and end up with recumbence, convulsions and death. The course can progress rapidly and animals are often found dead without any prior signs being observed. Evidence of thrashing will usually surround the dead animal. Intravenous calcium may cause a response in a few cases, but more often has no effect. Luckily, prevention is more effective than treatment. Graze less susceptible cattle, such as calves, yearlings or dry cows, on pastures where problems are likely to occur. Dolomite or high Mg limestone can increase the availability of magnesium while raising the pH of the soil. On highrisk pastures, the use of a mineral with high magnesium content increases the blood magnesium levels and alleviates the potential for problems. Since there is very little capacity for storage and rapid mobilization of magnesium, supplemental magnesium must be consumed on a daily basis. If the supplement is allowed to run out the cattle are suddenly again at risk. In these times of high cattle prices, coupled with high input costs, every calf counts. By the time you realize you have a grass tetany problem it is probably too late to do much except dispose of the carcasses and figure out what you are going to tell the banker. In this case an ounce of prevention truly does equal a pound of cure.

This column is the second in 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.

Amy Cowan, American Hereford Association SC: What is your background – were you raised on a farm or ranch? I grew up on a third-generation family farm in Northwest Iowa where we raised Shorthorns and commercial cattle. My brother and I were active in 4-H and the Iowa Junior Shorthorn Association. I attended South Dakota State University and majored in animal science and ag journalism and was on the livestock judging team. This led me to an internship with the American Shorthorn Association and later a job at the American Hereford Association. SC: Would you describe for us what you really do (sometimes job titles aren’t reflective of the actual work): I am the director of junior activities and foundation for the American Hereford Association, and I get the opportunity to work with Hereford youth and their families from across the country. My job is very multifaceted, from planning and attending Hereford shows and events, to fundraising and working with sponsors and donors, there is definitely something different every day. As the youth director, throughout the year I spend most of my time event planning and marketing as I manage the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) and PRIDE Leadership Convention. I also advise the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors and work closely with various committees who host the JNHE and assist with our youth programs. The Junior National Hereford Expo has grown into one of the largest single breed youth events in the country, as it showcases close to 1,200 head of cattle and 700 Hereford youth. In the foundation role, my focus is fundraising with the goal to grow the Hereford Youth Foundation (HYFA) to $5 million. I work closely with the HYFA Board of Directors planning events and promoting the benefits of the foundation to our membership. The foundation and the NJHA go hand and hand with HYFA, awarding $50,000 in scholarships each year and helping to support the JNHE and PRIDE Conventions. Last year, I was lucky enough to help plan “The Harvest” fundraiser event that we held in Sonoma, Calif. We generated close to $300,000 at the auction that night to support scholarship and education for the youth. Orchestrating events like this and working with the HYFA board and all our gracious supporters and donors is definitely an added bonus to my job here as the youth director. SC: How did you get into this line of work? Thirteen years ago I started as a communication assistant at the American Hereford Association and from there spent a few years as the editor of the Hereford World and on the association side have always worked with the national shows and marketing. So when the youth director position came open, it was a natural fit for me as I have always enjoyed working with the youth and saw so much future with the Junior National Hereford Expo and youth foundation.

A Youth Director for A BreeD AssociAtion

SC: What do you like about your job? The Hereford breeders and the junior members and their families that I get to work with every day truly make my job very worthwhile and rewarding. All the demand and excitement there is right now for Hereford genetics, combined with new members we have on the junior level is very exciting and makes me feel good about what we have to offer as a breed and an association. There is nothing more fun than to get a phone call about a sale ring success story and knowing that a driving factor in successful sales like these is the junior Hereford heifer market and the Junior National Hereford Expo. SC: What are the toughest challenges for what you do? Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done, but that keeps things exciting and there is never a dull moment. I continually have to get better at multitasking and finding more efficient ways to do things. Funding for our events and programs is probably the biggest challenge we face each year. We have been very fortunate to team up with some great corporate partners like Sure Champ and Sullivan Supply/ Stock Show University, and without companies like this believing in our youth, we definitely could not do the things we do from year to year. SC: Do you need a college degree in your profession? Yes.


SC: Where should somebody go to get started in your line of work? Like I said earlier, I started as a communications assistant and worked my way up in the association learning all I could about the breed, our members and association business. So, if you are interested in being a youth director or working for a breed association, look for internships with other breed associations, state cattleman’s organizations or even state fairs and stock shows. SC: What is a typical day on the job like for you? It really depends what time of year it is. In the fall starts our national show season, so I am travelling a lot to all the shows and events and don’t spend much time in the office. After Fort Worth, which is our last national show of the season, I switch gears and focus on planning and preparations for the Junior National Hereford Expo and the days are filled with conference calls and board meetings and getting as much checked off the list for Junior Nationals and PRIDE Convention before the entries start coming in the first of May. Each summer I hire an intern to assist with the Junior National workload, and we spend the summer processing entries, scholarship applications and all of the contest entries. Communication is a big part of my job each day, whether it be on the phone with members and state advisors, organizing the junior newsletter, updating the website and helping to keep the membership and the industry updated on all the happenings from the National Junior Hereford Association, I am always thankful for my communication and journalism experience. SC: What would most surprise a high school or college student about your career? Probably how much behind the scenes work and attention to detail that have to happen before the first heifer or steer can walk in the ring at an event like the Junior National Hereford Expo. Growing up showing and participating in junior events, there are lots of things I took for granted, but once I became involved with an event like this, it made me appreciate everyone that gave me opportunities as a youth to showcase my livestock and my talents. It is very rewarding to see firsthand the junior members grow up through the ranks of the NJHA and see them go on to be leaders in our great industry and leaders in the Hereford breed. SC: Anything you wish someone would have told you when you were in school? Take advantage of every networking opportunity you get while you are in college and get involved in programs going on around you. The connections you make and the networks you build in college will come in so handy throughout your career, and you will never regret things like livestock judging, block and bridle or running for your junior breed association board. Each year, the internship selection process gets more and more difficult, because students are taking advantage of the opportunities to increase their skills and build their resumes. Most importantly, have fun, but make sure you are one of those students who is making the most of their time in college.

ProPosed rule on Bse to Be PuBlished

USDA is set to publish a proposed comprehensive rule for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) that would hopefully level the playing field for U.S. beef in the global marketplace by appropriately addressing risk related to BSE, according to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “It is very difficult for the United States to demand our trading partners follow OIE (International Organization for Animal Health) standards when we are not here at home. The comprehensive BSE rule will change that and will solidify the United States’ commitment to basing our trade relationships on internationallyrecognized, science-based standards,” says Kent Bacus, NCBA’s associate director of legislative affairs. “This rule has been a long time coming, and we stand ready to work with members of Congress and the administration to finalize this rule.” OIE uses categories to identify a country’s BSE risk status -negligible, controlled and undetermined risk. USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service would base its import policy for a particular country on that country’s risk classification as determined by OIE’s risk evaluation, according to the American Meat Institute. All countries would be considered by APHIS to have an undetermined BSE risk unless officially recognized as either negligible or controlled risk. USDA was cleared to published the rule in the Federal Register and begin accepting comments by the White House Office of Management and Budget after a bipartisan group of 31 U.S senators urged the agencies to finalize a comprehensive rule in a letter they sent to APHIS. The senators said non-science based standards have resulted U.S. beef producers losing $100 million annually in beef trade to Mexico alone.

Forage, Corn Feed alternative For Cattle May CoMe FroM Biodiesel industry

Crude glycerin, a byproduct of biodiesel production, could be an economical ingredient in cattle diets, according to studies by Texas AgriLife Research and West Texas A&M University personnel. Dr. Jim MacDonald, AgriLife Research beef cattle nutritionist in Amarillo, said during biodiesel production from sources such as cottonseed oil, glycerol is separated from fatty acids. The fatty acids become the biodiesel and the glycerol, combined with the impurities that remain, is a potential ingredient in livestock feed. “Crude glycerin is usually priced at a discount relative to corn, so we wanted to look at replacing corn to evaluate at the energy val-

250 April 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

ue of the glycerin,” MacDonald said. “Then the question became, what if you replace forage, which would be the case with stocker cattle?” MacDonald said glycerin has good flowability in low temperatures, as opposed to molasses or other similar products, and is non-corrosive to feeding equipment — both traits making it attractive to the cattle feeding industry. Additionally, glycerin is low in phosphorus, protein and sulfur, which can be concentrated in other dietary ingredients. While the researchers knew the physical and nutritional properties made crude glycerin an attractive carrier in liquid supplement programs, relatively little was known about its performance implications in growing or high-concentrate finishing diets for beef cattle. For the past two years, MacDonald has teamed up with Dr. Mike Brown at West Texas A&M University to conduct four experiments designed to determine the value of feeding crude glycerin in beef growing and finishing diets. The studies were designed to determine the feeding value, optimal concentration and which dietary components were most optimally displaced by crude glycerin in growing diets, he said. Within the studies, the researchers looked at two strategies: replace corn or replace some forage. In the studies replacing corn, the researchers saw an optimal inclusion between 2.5% and 7.5% glycerin. At 10% inclusion, feed efficiency was reduced. When forage was replaced in one study, they saw no change in average daily gain, but the cattle consumed less feed and so feed efficiency was improved. The feed efficiency was improved when either 5% or 10% glycerin was fed. Another advantage is a less bulky ration as forage is replaced. “I feel very comfortable using crude glycerin up to 7.5% of a diet,” MacDonald said. The researchers even tested for a possible negative impact on fiber digestibility, but found none when the crude glycerin was fed at the low levels. “We also saw an increase in microbial protein and a reduction in rumen ammonia,” MacDonald said. This information could lead to further studies, he said. In high-forage diets, often excess nitrogen is formed in the rumen, which is excreted as urea and volatilized into the atmosphere as ammonia. The crude glycerin may allow more of the nitrogen to be captured before it is excreted and, thus, reduce ammonia emissions of cattle grazing high-quality forage. “We also observed no negative impacts on animal health up to 10% inclusion in diets of newly received calves,” MacDonald said.


aBout that Pink sliMe…

Reporters in early March had a field day with headlines stemming from reports of USDA’s purchasing 7 million pounds of ground beef for the National School Lunch Program containing something called “pink slime.” While the science of the product is sound (it safely destroys bacteria) the name and image is so unappetizing that even fast-food giants like McDonalds don’t use it because it just can’t pass the public relations test. If you have questions, or have gotten questions from those outside of agriculture, here is a great explanation of what the product really is and how it’s used in the food industry from the American Meat Institute. “Boneless lean beef trimmings (BLBT) is a safe, wholesome and nutritious form of beef that is made by separating lean beef from fat. To make the product, beef companies use beef trimmings, the small cuts of beef that remain when larger cuts are trimmed down. These trimmings are USDA-inspected, wholesome cuts of beef that contain both fat and lean and are nearly impossible to separate using a knife. When these trimmings are processed, the process separates the fat away and the end result is nutritious, lean beef. It’s a process similar to separating cream from milk. “One process uses food grade ammonium hydroxide gas, something commonly used in the production of many foods, to destroy

bacteria. Whatever process is used, it is all done under the watchful eye of USDA inspectors and according to strict federal rules. Lean finely textured beef is blended into foods like ground beef. Producing BLBT ensures that lean, nutritious, safe beef is not wasted in a world where red meat protein supplies are decreasing while global demand is increasing as population and income increases. “Some recent media reports created a troubling and inaccurate picture, particularly in their use of the colloquial term ‘pink slime.’ The fact is, BLBT is beef. The beef trimmings that are used to make BLBT are absolutely edible. In fact, no process can somehow make an inedible meat edible; it’s impossible. In reality, the BLBT production process simply removes fat and makes the remaining beef more lean and suited to a variety of beef products that satisfy consumers’ desire for leaner foods. “In fact, BLBT is a sustainable product because it recovers lean meat that would otherwise be wasted. The beef industry is proud to efficiently produce as much lean meat as possible from the cattle we raise. It’s the right thing to do and it ensures that our products remain as affordable as we can make them while helping to feed America and the world.” “Consumers with questions are encouraged to visit http://www. meatmythcrushers.com/ for information on the use of ammonium hydroxide in other foods.”

The life of

Taking care of business

The summer is approaching and even though you are itching to get on the road with the truck and trailer, there are few paperwork details to take care of. This is the time of year that scholarships, junior board and proficiency applications, among others, are being filled out by hundreds of youth across the country. We know that there are a lot of talented youth in our industry so how will you make you application stand out from the rest? In college, I had the opportunity to intern with the American Hereford Association. As part of my responsibilities, I organized all the scholarship and junior board applications, and then distributed them out to selection committees. Although I was certainly impressed with the organizations that these junior members had been involved in, and the service that they had provided to their schools and community, I felt that there were definitely some things that could have been improved. I have seen the same errors made on junior board applications during my time at the American Angus Association, and as well as last fall as I helped evaluate the National FFA Proficiency awards. Proofread I know your parents, advisors and leaders have told you this a million times, but it’s such an important piece of the puzzle. The cleaner your application is, in terms of grammar and spelling, the more time the selection committee can focus on the content of your application. Remember those words on the paper represent you. Simple errors show a lack of effort and attention to detail. Do not let your application enter the mail until someone else has had a chance to read through and critique your application. Professionalism Often, award applications require you to submit a picture of yourself. I was shocked by the number of pictures that were from a Facebook profile, had someone else cropped out of the picture or the applicants were not presenting themselves in a very professional manner. Take an afternoon and have a friend, family member or neighbor snap a couple of headshots of you. This way you’ll have quick access to a professional looking portrait to accompany your application. Also, keep the frilly fonts, wild colors or unusual paper out of your application. It is best to use the same letterhead, font, style and/or paper throughout the application to give it flow and a clean look. Reference letters A positive reference letter can be a huge benefit. When selecting the people you would like to be your references, make sure to pick someone

An Ag Girl

that you have a current relationship with. Your 4-H leader may have been very involved in your life a few years ago, but your college livestock judging coach might be a more relevant choice. Also, make sure your references have plenty of time to craft their letter and return it back to you or the selection committee. Provide them with a description of the award or position, and make sure they have the correct spelling of the company name. Networking Remember you never know who will end up on a selection committee. You might not think someone knows who you are, but there is a good chance they have seen you out in the show ring, stopped by your stalls/ farm or interacted with you through social media. It is important for you to be growing your network and be cognitive that someone is always observing your actions. If you can form relationships with these people, they can help act as your eyes and ears regarding potential opportunities that you may not have been aware of. I certainly don’t mind putting in a good word for those junior members that I have formed a positive relationship with over the years. And the most important piece of the puzzle - apply! It shocks me when thousands of dollars are up for grabs and only a handful of people submit their applications. You don’t have to be the front-runner or the favorite when applying for internships, junior positions or other awards. Ever year I watch what others may believe a middle-of-the-pack candidate rise to the top because they put in the time and effort to reach their goals.

-The Maternal Value of Meyer 734

SIRE: WHO MADE WHO DAM: MEYER 734 x CENTURY TOUCHSTONE Owned with Holmes Show Cattle (515) 341-2734 • Who Made Who con continues to be a force in the club calf producing world. These long standing, industry changing genetics are continually producing some of the business’s most successful females. • His highly proclaimed maternal granddam, by Touchstone, produced one of the most popular Angus steers ever in club calf history, winning the Iowa Beef Expo, Angus Jr. National and the Iowa State Fair champion banners. She’s as impressive as any Angus cow - there are few like her today! • The influence of POISON ARROW on the powerful Simm-Maine influenced females at Duello Cattle Co. is eagerly anticipated. This exciting young herd sire is no “middle of the road” bull. If you want to change a set of cows, this bull has all the right traits and the punch to get it done! • POISON ARROW is super extended through his neck and front, big hipped and has the ideal rib shape. He should work excellent to generate club calf producing daughters on a set of cows needing added style, quality and shape, with a cool outline!

• Wide Open,, is one of the most unique PB Simmental sires to come onto the scene in recent history. While in Denver 2010, he was a high seller and was named Bull Calf Champion on the hill. • His fresh genetics, power and athleticism made him a favorite among purebred breeders and club calf producers alike. His sire, Foreman, produced the top selling bull in Denver 2011. Wide Open’s pedigree traces to X339U on the top and bottom, plus Black Irish Kansas, Black Mick and 600U...maternal legends. • As his first daughters approach yearling age, they are tremendous and all that we had hoped for. They appear to have lots of maternal look and they are moderate and stout. These females are big time cow makers! Semen $25 per unit; SEXED SEMEN AVAILABLE.

NICK REIMANN

JOHN SULLIVAN

Nick Reimann has raised some exceptional cattle this year, Nick’s 2011 sale highlights included 2 Heat Wave steers that sold to Todd Caldwell  and went on to be named Grand Champion Prospect Steers at the Badger Kickoff Classic and Witchita Mountains Classic in December on the same weekend for Emma Vickland of Colorado. Both of those steers are out of Who Made Who females. Congrats to Nick on these successes along with all the rest of his many  outstanding cattle that he sells across the United States.

John Sullivan bred cattle are no stranger to the winner’s circle in the last year. At the 2011 Maine Junior Nationals in Kansas City, two Monopoly females were named Grand Champion & Res. Grand Champion MaineTainer females. A pair of Monopoly x Irish Whiskey full brothers also were named Grand Champion Market Steer at the Iowa State fair and Reserve Market steer at the North American International Livestock Expo respectively. Congrats to the whole crew at Sullivan Farms on outstanding results on these champions as well as many others across the United States and Canada.

DEAN STALEY

Dean Staley from Charter Oak, Iowa had an exciting 30 day run in December and January when a Boardwalk heifer he raised was named Reserve Grand Champion Breeding Heifer at Kansas Beef Expo for Kassidy Bremer and then later a Monopoly x Mossy Oak steer he raised was named Reserve Grand Champion Market Steer at the National Western Stock Show in Denver for Gracie Russell. That steer was purchased and sold by Bob May and Tracy Goretska. Congrats to Dean and his family on there continued breeding success. Dean annually has a September pasture sale in the Western Iowa Club Calf Producers Group.

RICK SCHULTZ Rick Schultz had another highly successful year. In September, Rick sold a Monopoly x Honey steer  for $37,000 to Steve Bonham and also a Monopoly x Char heifer to John Sachau for $25,000. Additionally a Heat Wave x Hostage steer sold to Ryan Dunklau and Greg Recknor sold that went on to be named Grand Champion steer at the 2012 South Dakota State University Block & Bridle for Kailey Davis of Minnesota. Rick also sold eggs on his Heat Wave x Hostage mating to Wooster Show Cattle of Iowa, a resulting white socked market heifer has been successfully campaigned by the Udell family of Iowa. Congrats to Rick on his continued success with Lautner bulls.

WHY BRIAN ENGLAND BREEDS LAUTNER • PREDICTABILITY • HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER GENETICS • PROVEN SHOW RING SUCCESS • MARKETABILITY

Brian England raised the winningest prospect steer in the country! The steer resulted from mating Monopoly with an Ali daughter that sold in Tracy Goretska’s October 2011 sale to Kayla Morrow of Missouri. Currently the steer has been named Grand Champion 21 times and Reserve Grand Champion twice. Having never placed lower than that Reserve title. We can’t remember a steer ever going undefeated through an entire jackpot season. What an incredible accomplishment to have raised this outstanding calf. Look for a clone of this steer in the coming years from the Lautner Farms bull battery.


DAN YOUNG

MARK HENNY

Dan young has a tremendous Ice Pick female that has been crossing exceptionally with Monopoly. One of the matings was a steer that was named Grand Champion Steer at the 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo. This steer was shown by Stults family of Oklahoma and sold with Dustin Glover, this steer might most famously be known as the calf that judge Paul Clapp used when he gave a jumping high five to select him for Grand Champion rather than the standard slap on the rump. This past year Dan’s Ice Pick female gave him an overwhelmingly successful flush to Monopoly, resulting calves were purchased by Brian Goettemoeller and Cory Thomsen and have been shown successfully across the country.

Mark Henney has had a tremendous year with his lead donor cow: “Goose” A Goose x Monopoly female was recently named Champion Chi Heifer at the Illinois Beef Expo for the Guyer family. This female is a Maternal sister to Matt Lautner Cattle’s outstanding new in 2012 , Walkie Talkie. Walkie Talkie was the most popular cow changer on display at the 2012 National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. Look for “Goose” genetics to sell this weekend at the Ohio Beef Expo on the “Frozen Gold Sale” Congrats to Mark on his highly successful year.

MARK WILLIAMS

Mark Williams raised two of the most popular steers from this winter’s jackpot season. AJ Line’s Monopoly steer was named Grand Champion Steer at the 2012 Kentucky Beef Expo in Louisville.  Mark raised this calf and sold  him to Steve Bonham, Dave Guyer, and Todd Caldwell. Mark also raised a Heat Wave steer that sold to Kevin Bremer that was selected Grand Champion Steer at the 2012 National Western Stock Show for Jake Wagner. These two prospect shows are as competitive of shows as there are anywhere in the country. Mark annually has a sale in September with Lueking Club Calves hosted near Oxford, Nebraska. Congrats on your incredible year Mark Williams and Rock Falls Ranch.

The most talked about Monopoly son, Denver 2011. Monopoly Money excels in terms of depth of flank, length of neck, look, bone and foot size. He would have made an awesome showsteer, but we kept this one intact. His pedigree has traces of Chill Factor and New Design Angus fro his mother. Females by Monopoly Money should be equally as valuable as the males. His sire, Monopoly has proven himself as a consistent sire of quality cattle and we think this young standout will continue that tradition.

Here he is, The Man Among Boys in Denver. Several comments were received declaring Walkie Talkie as one of the best bulls to ever be displayed in Denver. Including Korky Wise, who needs no introduction to raising Texas and Oklahoma champions. Walkie Talkie was the biggest butted, softest made, squarest built, whistle fronted and soundest Walks Alone son ever. We believe Walkie Talkie will work wonders on cows needing the extra punch of muscle, look and bone. Walkie Talkie wont need to be protected on structure and belly like the other’s from this genetic line. Use Walkie Talkie on cows that have worked to this genetic line in the past but, expect sounder, chubbier made cattle and much better results! Check him out at Hawkeye Breeders, you will agree he possesses an unquestionably sound and functional rear leg set. Which is as good as this genetic line has produced.
