Successful Spring Shedding: A Step by Step Guide What You’ll Need: ✔ Shedding

Comb ✔ Stierwalt ProCharge ✔ Stierwalt ProPolish

Shedding Comb Durable steel “Y” frame with 4" wide head covers more surface area for faster shedding while rounded stainless steel teeth work great on even the thickest coats without pulling out healthy hair

Step 1 Gently pull the Shedding Comb across the animal’s coat in the direction of hair growth to loosen and remove dead hair

Step 2 Mix one part ProCharge to three parts ProPolish for the perfect combination of conditioning and protective properties

Step 3 Spray on mixture and blow in for thorough coverage

Stierwalt ProCharge Replenishes, nourishes and restores the natural beauty of your cattle’s hair for the perfect bloom

Stierwalt ProPolish Repels dust and dirt while protecting hair follicles from the harsh environment

Step 4 Repeat steps daily until shedding is complete

Gunslinger is an exciting package that combines superb phentoype, excellent genetics, great data and real-world function. He’s sound structured with a long, giraffe-like neck not often found in a purebred Simmental bull, plus he’s plenty deep. Gunslinger offers the convenience traits of being homozygous black and homozygous polled.

Sugar Daddy’s dam

is a neat package who should transmit an ultra cool look just like he and his sisters possess. His dam is a powerful, stout, big bodied female with a great udder. We expect Sugar Daddy to sire super profiled, zipper fronted progeny with better maternal traits than his paternal heritage has done.

Homozygous black and polled!

Plain and simple... this is the baldy, outcross, Simmental sire we’ve ALL been looking for! Purebred Simmental Reg. 2341498 Sire: Flying B Prime Cut by TE McCredie Dam: by GW Bright Light

Cut Above fondly earned the nickname “Fat Butt” for his pronounced badonka donk. Take just one look at “Fat Butt”, and it is clear why he’s bound for stardom. You won’t find a purebred Simmental sire with more muscle shape, neck extension, and base width. This package is transported on a perfectly designed, massive set of feet & legs. Phenotype alone is enough to use this bull. Enhancing his value is the fact that he’s related to virtually none of the popular sires of today, yet brings to the table some of the most recognizable and successful foundation sires of the past - notably, Black Max & Buck on both sides.

Fat Butt progeny are unlike any from a Simmental sire you’ve used before. They’re a wellbalanced package of muscle, bone, style, hair, and incredible structure.

Showmanship Points by Division Oklahoma Club Calf Association - February 2012

Here in Oklahoma we have not had much winter. It is still warm and dry. Please pray for rain in this part of the world. The OCCA point year is winding down, and OYE is almost here. The kids have gone hard to the shows, and their hard work has paid off. Check the website for your points, make sure they are correct and in the correct district. If not, let Nancy or one of the board members know, so it can be corrected. Beef Expo is right around the corner. It will be good to see everyone in Stillwater. Remember the banquet is Saturday night. If you are up for an award, you need to be there. Remember to bring your family. It’s a great time! Watch the website for news and info on new shows and their dates. Again we want to thank our Platinum sponsors: CM Trailers, Purina, Cinch and Cruel Girl. Without them this would not be possible. Thanks!! If your friends that show are not members of OCCA, invite them to join. They won’t be sorry. Good luck at OYE and see you in the city!

Champion York Gilt, 2011 World Pork Expo

Nation wide Champions share their confidence in Showmaster® products.

Crouch family SHOWMASTER® BLING is by far and away the most versatile supplement that we have used. If you want big, shapely tops with perfect body cover, it is the way to go. Our pigs have never had this kind of freshness. BLING gives us the competitive advantage when we are running hard. – Tipton, IN Additional wins include ... Champion York Gilt, 2011 Summer Type Conference; Reserve Cross Market Hog, 2011 American Royal; and many time Grand Champion Gilt, IJSC.

Grand Champion Barrow, 2011 Indiana State Fair

North Family We always had the potential, but SHOWMASTER® GROWER has put us over the peak of the mountain! Our hog’s appetites have increased, giving us more power, shape and feed consumption. This allows us to have a “Champion’s” mind and hang banners! – LaGrange, IN Additional wins include ... Reserve Champion Hamp Market Hog, 2012 NWSS; Reserve Champion Landrace Market Hog, 2012 NWSS; Champion York Gilt, 2011 American Royal; and Champion AOB Market Hog, 2011 American Royal.

We start our pigs on SHOWMASTER® PRESTARTER and STARTER to lay a good foundation. The PRE-STARTER has been great transitioning from milk to feed in a fast time period and without the weaning crash. STARTER as step two in the program helps maximize muscle shape, bloom and appetite. When our pigs leave the barn to new homes, they need every advantage they can get in this fast changing industry. – Nathan Weisinger, Fort Madison, IA

The line of SHOWMASTER® feeds has been a turning point in our program. It delivers the nutrients needed for excellent growth and muscle development while maintaining ideal cover and sustaining a healthy appetite though periods of stress and heat cycles. In addition, there is no other supplement like BLING! When wanting that extra bloom and freshness, “BLING” your game to the next level with SHOWMASTER® feeds! – Tipton, IN

Additional wins include ... Reserve Grand Champion Cross Boar, 2011 World Pork Expo and Grand Champion Market Hog, 2011 Ak-Sar-Ben.

Additional wins include ... Reserve Grand Champion Gilt, 2011 Cross Bred Classic and Champion Berk Gilt, 2011 World Pork Expo.

With the SHOWMASTER® PIG GROWER, we noticed a significant change with body, rib and muscle shape in the hogs. Our show team prefers predictable genetics and this great show feed is a factor in giving us maximum results. – Lebo, KS Additional wins include ... Champion Cross Market Hog, 2011 American Royal; Grand Champion Market Hog 2011 Ak-Sar-Ben; Grand Champion Market Hog, 2011 Kansas State Fair; Champion Hamp Gilt, 2011 World Pork Expo; Reserve Champion Cross Barrow, 2011 World Pork Expo; Reserve Spot Gilt, 2011 World Pork Expo; and Reserve Spot Gilt, 2011 Certified Pedigreed Swine.

Caldwell Family

The SHOWMASTER® program has been vital in our family’s success. We are new to the show pig game, but with a strong cattle background, we know how important consistency and easy-to-manage programs are. While on SHOWMASTER® PIG GROWER, our hogs have developed more width and mass of top, freshness to their body and an increasing appetite to help us stay competitive in this game. – Elmwood, IL Additional wins include ... Reserve Champion Duroc Market Hog, 2012 NWSS; Reserve Champion Light Weight Cross Market Hog, 2011 North American; Champion Poland Gilt, 2011 World Pork Expo; and Champion Poland Gilt, 2011 Certified Pedigreed Swine.

etting to Know Foreign Investments

Foreign investments can play an important role in helping to diversify a domestic equity portfolio. But before plunging into international waters, it’s important to understand the differences between developed and emerging markets and the risks inherent to each.

Business Minded

Emerging trends Once upon a time, the United States was considered an emerging market. In the late 1800s, British financiers, noting America’s growth potential, invested in the companies that were building the nation’s infrastructure – particularly the early railroad companies. In doing so, they were accepting more risk than they would have with investments in their own market. The United States, after all, was still maturing and political and social change, as well as many other factors, could have made it a volatile investment market. The same risk/reward characteristics apply to today’s emerging markets, which are found in every corner of the globe. Because they are still maturing, they may have more room for growth than long-established markets, such as the United States. But because the road to maturity is not always a smooth one, there may be bumps along the way. In general, emerging markets have three characteristics: • Low or moderate personal incomes. • Economies that are in the process of being industrialized. • Financial infrastructures, including stock markets, that are still being developed. A developing infrastructure is what may give an emerging market its growth potential. For example, in an emerging market an industry such as banking might be just beginning to establish itself and therefore have above-average growth potential. Of course, you need to keep in mind that emerging market investments are generally appropriate for patient investors with long-term time horizons. Emerging market stock prices can take

224 March 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

dramatic swings, and it is essential that you have the time to ride them out or, in a worse case scenario, the ability to lose some or all of your initial investment. Ongoing opportunity Developed markets typically have higher average incomes than emerging markets, well-established financial institutions and markets and modern infrastructures. Of course, they may still offer investors the potential for continued growth. By the same token, like emerging markets, developed foreign markets may be subject to greater risks than domestic investments. Foreign markets may be less efficient, less liquid and more volatile than those in the United States. They are also subject to the effects of foreign currency fluctuations and differing regulations. If you decide to build an international element into your investment portfolio, mutual funds and separately managed account strategies that focus on international investing may be ideas to consider. Professional portfolio managers often have access to information that’s not widely available, not to mention the time and experience required to track events in a variety of markets. Before expanding your portfolio beyond U.S. borders, contact a qualified financial professional who can help you prepare for this investment journey.

ypothermia The USDA estimates that 95,000 calves die each year of hypothermia. It may be more common in calves than is recognized and proper diagnosis, treatment and prevention are critical to calf survival.

Cold-StreSSed CalveS

Mild cold stress or hypothermia At this stage of cold stress, we observe vigorous shivering. If we look carefully we will see pulse and breathing rates above normal. Recall that the normal pulse rate of a calf at rest falls in the range of 70 to 100 beats per minute; normal breathing rate of a calf at rest falls in the range of 20 to 40 breaths per minute. These calves are likely to have a body temperature around 100°F (38°C) rather than the more normal 102°F (39°C). Check for an excessively cold nose. Cold hooves, too, are a clue that blood is being diverted away from extremities. Severe hypothermia At this stage of cold stress, shivering may slow or even stop. Shivering is replaced by rigidity – muscles are stiff. Nostrils will be cold and pale. If standing, calves may be clumsy and act confused. They are unlikely to suckle. Pulse and breathing rates continue to slow. Body temperature continues to fall below 100°F (38°C). Textbooks tell us that at the mid-90°F (mid-30°C) level, the vital organs are chilling. Even the brain is beginning to get cold. Diagnosing cold stress or hypothermia Due to hormones that accompany birth, calves experience a surge of energy and are able to stand 30 to 60 minutes after delivery. After a hard birth, many calves look okay until these hormone levels drop. They look and act normal. Then, after 15 or 30 minutes, they may get progressively weaker, have a weak suckle response and be unable to stand. Often their body temperature has begun to slide down to 100°F (38°C) or less. Definite diagnosis? Take the calf ’s temperature. Preweaned calves are more likely to experience hypothermia where there is sustained loss of body heat. In outdoor housing, calves that get wet, lie on cold bedding or experience windy conditions can lose more heat than they can generate. In naturally ventilated calf barns, winter temperatures combined with drafts and poor bedding may cause gradual hypothermia. Definite diagnosis? Take the calf ’s temperature. Treating mild hypothermia Warm up the calf. For newborn calves, the first step is to make sure the calf is dry to stop evaporative heat loss . Rubbing the calf vigorously with clean, dry towels not only gets the calf dry but also stimulates higher pulse and breathing rates. I like to add a clean, dry calf blanket, too. The second step is to feed plenty of high-quality, clean, warm colostrum to warm the calf from the inside. A third step may be to put the calf in a warm environment until its temperature is back up to 102°F (39°C). Warm rooms work. Commercial calf warmers work. Boxes with heat lamps work. Remember, however, the calves need to go back into their cold environment as soon as their body temperature comes back up to normal. Monitoring calf temperature is a best management practice – calves headed for cold housing need to go there as soon as they get back to “normal” temperature.

230 March 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

How about preweaned calves that have experienced a steady loss of body heat? Feed 102°F (39°C) body temperature milk. Offer equally warm water. Add a calf blanket. If needed, try temporary residence in a warm room (not on a cold, wet concrete floor, however). Adding a heat lamp to a hutch can work, too. Treat hypothermia promptly. Body reserves of energy are severely depleted in coldstressed calves. They will gain weight slowly. Most importantly, their body defenses against infections are likely to be weakened. They need to be watched closely for infections for at least two weeks after a hypothermic event. Prevention is better than treatment Minimizing the effects of a hard pull through good calving management practices will help our dystocia (difficulty delivery) calves. Prompt and thorough drying of these calves along with timely colostrums feeding will go a long way to reduce cold stress. Pre-weaned calves can stand a lot of cold without developing hypothermia if: (1) We feed enough to meet both maintenance and growth needs. (2) Their bedding is clean and dry. (3) They have enough bedding to prevent heat loss down through the bedding. (4) Their hair coat is dry. (5) Air movement provides fresh air but does not carry away too much heat. Why is colostral fat an important ingredient in preventing and treating hypothermia? Administration of high-quality colostrum containing natural colostral fat to calves as soon as possible after birth is important so they can defend themselves against cold stress. When judging colostral quality we need to consider both immunoglobulin as well as natural fat concentrations. Natural colostral fat found in maternal colostrum is unique because it is the main nutrient that fuels immediate metabolism of brown fat to generate heat. Without colostral fat, a calf will deplete its body fat reserves within hours and the risk of hypothermia is heightened. In addition to calves exposed to a cold environment, dystocia calves are also more prone to hypothermia, and they require good-quality colostrum as soon as possible. When using a colostrum product, select those that contain at least 18% natural colostral fat. Products made from blood or whey with added vegetable fats do not provide the same benefits, nor do low-fat or defatted colostrum products. Always check the label for the ingredients and nutritional analysis. For examply, products made by The Saskatoon Colostrum Company Ltd. (SCCL) are made only from natural maternal colostrum that contains the complete complement of colostral fat. They provide calves with the energy they need to survive the first critical hours after birth.


Reaching Out to Agvocates “I Love Farmers... They Feed My Soul” By Anthony Pannone

What the next generation in agriculture looks like...hot, hip and ready to feed the world. These young people are the catalysts for starting a new, dynamic conversation with other young consumers about where their food comes from and how it is produced. Farmers today are diverse, innovative and working hard to meet the growing demands on an evolving planet!

Every day, contemporary agriculture’s fresh crop of future leaders celebrates choice in food marketplaces. Young people have an emotional bond with agriculture, and “I Love Farmers … They Feed My Soul” knows it. “Food and fiber are often the core of the relationships young people share with friends,” says Cal Poly agricultural communications professor J. Scott Vernon, who volunteers as the I Love Farmers (ILF) executive director. “They gather to eat, they shop and talk about clothes, yet they rarely consider the source of their shared experiences. We want to change that!” I Love Farmers, a non-profit agricultural advocacy group, provides opportunities for bold, progressive thinkers to express their passion for all types of U.S. production agriculture. Those involved claim the title, “Catalysts for Conversation.” But it’s not a member organization, Vernon says. What began on Facebook as a grassroots social-media experiment, ILF has grown into a nationwide movement that uses various forms of social media as advocacy tools. “It can fuel a passion within that you didn’t know existed,”

Cal Poly agricultural communications junior and American beef advocate Malorie Bankhead says. Armed with a hip, edgy and fun logo to attract young people, catalysts use Web 2.0 technology, temporary tattoos, and “Where’s The Food Without The Farmer?” bumper stickers to spread love and gain support. “It’s about being provocative,” catalyst Caroline Black says. She is an Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communications graduate student at Texas A&M University. “My goal is not only to create agricultural awareness among consumers disconnected from their food, but also producers that may never see consumers that buy their product.” In addition to distributing stylish gear, catalysts rely on innovative and exciting ways to share their stories and relate agriculture to everyone. Find out more about catalysts at www. ilovefarmers.org and on Facebook at “New I Love Farmers…They Feed My Soul.” “I’m different than what consumers perceive as a ‘typical agriculturalist,’” says catalyst Oz Cantu, who studies agricultural communications and journalism at Texas A&M University. “I don’t wear overalls and I don’t chew on straw. I wear Tom’s and hang headphones around my neck. I listen to all types of music, not just country. I’m not what people typically think of when they picture a farmer or a rancher.” Which is what

the movement is all about—changing perceptions about an industry that in the past has been reactive rather than proactive. For catalysts, the mission is simple: Involve young people and get them committed to sparking dialogue about American food and fiber. “ILF spreads the message to keep a younger generation of people interested in agriculture,” catalyst Joshua Hardcastle says. “So, one day, instead of calling our livelihood ‘useless,’ people will realize the value in it.” Catalysts exemplify the power of volunteerism. Unpaid, they use their knowledge and creativity to create and carry conversations about where everyone’s food and fiber comes from. Mallory Mobly, a Texas A&M University agricultural communications and journalism freshman, became a catalyst in September 2011. “We’re a family, a national family of agvocaters passionate about the farm and ranch families that keep us alive and happy.” Anthony Pannone is an Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications graduate student at Texas A&M University. He eats meat and respects those who don’t. Contact him via anthony@ilovefarmers.org.

The Man FroM Snowy river abouT The Movie… Jim Craig has lived his first 18 years in the mountains of Australia on his father’s farm. The death of his father forces him to go to the low lands to earn enough money to get the farm back on its feet. Kirk Douglas plays two roles as twin brothers who haven’t spoken for years, one of whom was Jim’s father’s best friend and the other of whom is cattle baron and the father of the girl he wants to marry. A 20-year-old feud re-erupts, catching Jim and Jessica in the middle of it as Jim is accused of letting a prize stallion loose. you May noT Know... • “The Man From Snowy River” was a poem written by A.B. “Banjo” Patterson, and published in The Bulletin, April 26, 1890. Patterson himself, along with the words of the poem, are immortalized on the Australian $10 note. The poem was based on a real person named Jack Riley, who migrated to Australia from Ireland at age 13 in 1851 and worked as a tailor before he found his passion as a stockman. • The movie contains numerous references to Banjo Patterson. Patterson himself is a character in the movie, as is Clancy from the poem, “Clancy of the Overflow”. Harrison’s wife was named Matilda. Patterson wrote the song “Waltzing Matilda”, and the melody can be heard at the very end of the movie. • The lead actor, Tom Burlinson, had not ridden horses much prior to filming. He was taught to ride by master horseman, Charlie Lovick, who owned the buckskin stead, Denny. Burlinson went on to perform almost all the riding and stunts in the movie for himself, including the famous cliff-jump, which was done for real, with no digital tricks or animation. The horse, Denny, died in 1999 at the age of 29, at the Lovicks’ home. • There is an annual celebration in Corryong, Victoria, Australia, called “The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival”. The 2012 festival is set for March 29-April 1. It is a unique bush gathering of mountain riders, poets, artists and lovers of the Australian High Country and pioneering spirit. There is a “Brumby Catch”, a “Stock Saddle Buckjump”, a four-day trail ride that retraces “Riley’s Ride”, a station muster, music, art, photography exhibits, and more.

The Man From Snowy River

There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around That the colt from old Regret had got away, And had joined the wild bush horses - he was worth a thousand pound, So all the cracks had gathered to the fray. All the tried and noted riders from the stations near and far Had mustered at the homestead overnight, For the bushmen love hard riding where the wild bush horses are, And the stock-horse snuffs the battle with delight.

By A.B. (Banjo) Paterson

And the stockwhips woke the echoes, and they fiercely answered back From cliffs and crags that beetled overhead. And upward, ever upward, the wild horses held their way, Where mountain ash and kurrajong grew wide; And the old man muttered fiercely, “We may bid the mob good day, No man can hold them down the other side.” When they reached the mountain’s summit, even Clancy took a pull It well might make the boldest hold their breath; The wild hop scrub grew thickly, and the hidden ground was full Of wombat holes, and any slip was death. But the man from Snowy River let the pony have his head, And he swung his stockwhip round and gave a cheer, And he raced him down the mountain like a torrent down its bed, While the others stood and watched in very fear.

There was Harrison, who made his pile when Pardon won the cup, The old man with his hair as white as snow; But few could ride beside him when his blood was fairly up He would go wherever horse and man could go. And Clancy of the Overflow came down to lend a hand, No better horseman ever held the reins; For never horse could throw him while the saddle-girths would stand He sent the flint-stones flying, but the pony kept his feet, He learnt to ride while droving on the plains. He cleared the fallen timber in his stride, And one was there, a stripling on a small and weedy beast; And the man from Snowy River never shifted in his seat He was something like a racehorse undersized, It was grand to see that mountain horseman ride. With a touch of Timor pony - three parts thoroughbred at least Through the stringybarks and saplings, on the rough and broken ground, And such as are by mountain horsemen prized. Down the hillside at a racing pace he went; He was hard and tough and wiry - just the sort that won’t say die And he never drew the bridle till he landed safe and sound There was courage in his quick impatient tread; At the bottom of that terrible descent. And he bore the badge of gameness in his quick and fiery eye, He was right among the horses as they climbed the farther hill, And the proud and lofty carriage of his head. And the watchers on the mountain, standing mute, But still so slight and weedy, one would doubt his power to stay, Saw him ply the stockwhip fiercely; he was right among them still, And the old man said, “That horse will never do As he raced across the clearing in pursuit. For a long and tiring gallop - lad, you’d better stop away, Then they lost him for a moment, where two mountain gullies met These hills are far too rough for such as you.” In the ranges - but a final glimpse reveals So he waited, sad and wistful - only Clancy stood his friend On a dim and distant hillside the wild horses racing yet, “I think we ought to let him come,” he said; With the man from Snowy River at their heels. “I warrant he’ll be with us when he’s wanted at the end, And he ran them single-handed till their sides were white with foam; For both his horse and he are mountain bred. He followed like a bloodhound on their track, “He hails from Snowy River, up by Kosciusko’s side, Till they halted, cowed and beaten; then he turned their heads for home, Where the hills are twice as steep and twice as rough; And alone and unassisted brought them back. Where a horse’s hooves strike firelight from the flintstones every stride, But his hardy mountain pony he could scarcely raise a trot, The man that holds his own is good enough. He was blood from hip to shoulder from the spur; And the Snowy river riders on the mountains make their home, But his pluck was still undaunted, and his courage fiery hot, Where the river runs those giant hills between; For never yet was mountain horse a cur. I have seen full many horsemen since I first commenced to roam, And down by Kosciusko, where the pine-clad ridges raise But nowhere yet such horsemen have I seen.” Their torn and rugged battlements on high, So he went: they found the horses by the big mimosa clump, Where the air is clear as crystal, and the white stars fairly blaze They raced away towards the mountain’s brow, At midnight in the cold and frosty sky, And the old man gave his orders, “Boys, go at them from the jump, And where around the Overflow the reed-beds sweep and sway No use to try for fancy riding now. To the breezes, and the rolling plains are wide, And, Clancy, you must wheel them, try and wheel them to the right. The Man from Snowy River is a household word today, Ride boldly lad, and never fear the spills, And the stockmen tell the story of his ride. For never yet was rider that could keep the mob in sight, If once they gain the shelter of those hills.” So Clancy rode to wheel them - he was racing on the wing Where the best and boldest riders take their place, And he raced his stock-horse past them and he made the ranges ring With the stockwhip, as he met them face to face. Then they halted for a moment, while he swung the dreaded lash, But they saw their well-loved mountain full in view, And they charged beneath the stockwhip with a sharp and sudden dash, And off into the mountain scrub they flew. Then fast the horsemen followed, where the gorges deep and black, Resounded to the thunder of their tread,

Last month, I presented the keynote address for the 11th Heart of America Grazing Conference. In my presentation, I addressed the issue of hay value and hay’s relative cost:lb of TDN (total digestible nutrients) compared to other feedstuffs for beef cows. This information can be seen in Table 1. The calculations in this table assume hay at 90% dry matter (DM) (most hay is probably 85% to 88% DM) and 55% TDN (grass hay may range between 50% and 53% TDN and legume hay can range between 53% and 59% TDN). I assumed shelled corn was 12% moisture, and 90% TDN on a DM basis. To calculate corn silage values, I assumed shelled corn yielded 200 bu:ac or 24 tons of corn silage @ 60% moisture and 70% TDN. If we assume an average 1,400-pound cow in late gestation requires 5.9% crude protein and 52% TDN and, in early lactation, requires 10.9% crude protein and 55% TDN, then most hay (grass or legume) will satisfy the cow’s requirements in gestation and high-quality grass/legume hay will meet her requirements without supplementation during lactation. Meeting the cows CP (crude protein) and TDN requirements with hay is really not the problem (unless we are dealing with sub-quality hay). The problem is hay is simply too expensive to feed to cows, if one has an alternative market for the hay. Even at $7.50:bu shelled corn costs less per pound of TDN than hay priced at $200:ton. If corn is $7.50, hay must be valued no higher than $170.80:ton so as not to be more expensive than shelled corn. Of course, cows can’t eat just shelled corn without digestive upset and founder, so either an alternative roughage (corn stalks, soybean stubble, etc.) or limited amounts of hay must be included in the diet. A quick calculation finds the cost of big round bales of corn stalks average 2.35 to 3.53:lb of TDN if baling is $10 to $15:bale and no value is given to the corn stalk for nutritive content other than filler or loss in organic matter as a soil amendment caused by removal of the corn stalks. Therefore, a diet containing shelled corn and corn stalks is less expensive than hay. A recent study completed at Illinois State University compared the cost of feeding late gestation/early lactation beef cows corn silage-based diets with either shelled corn and soybean meal (SBM), or low-fat modified wet distillers grains (WDGS). Table 2 shows that feeding WDGS to meet similar CP and ME (metabolizable energy) requirements is less expensive than corn silage, shelled corn and soybean meal by 52.86:day:cow or $95.15 over a 180-day feeding period. Overfeeding WDGS that results in overfeeding CP costs less per day than supplementing corn silage with shelled corn

and SBM – but is more expensive than feeding WDGS to meet just CP and ME requirements. Using WDGS to replace shelled corn and SBM as a supplemental CP and TDN replacement, cost wise is the most efficacious strategy. Using WDGS as a replacement for corn silage in addition to shelled corn and SBM is more economical than supplementing corn silage-based diets with just shelled corn and SBM. But, as WDGS replaces corn silage in the diet the cost advantage decreases. However, if corn silage or hay is in short supply, increasing WDGS in the diet can still be a more economical alternative than purchasing hay. In this study, corn silage made up 64% of the diet DM when shelled and SBM were fed (T1); 72% when WDGS was 25% of the diet DM (T2); 53% when WDGS was 43% of diet DM (T3); and 38% when WDGS was 58% of the diet DM (T4). When hay is in short supply or when hay has a high relative value, low -at modified wet distillers grains with solubles are an attractive replacement. However, the price advantages for WDGS can be reduced if WDGS is overfed.

Tips for better Wildlife Photography • Point-and-shoot cameras generally won’t give you the kind of wildlife pictures you want due to their limited range and the difficulty in lighting scenarios when wildlife are most active – dawn and dusk. A digital SLR camera will give you better shots and more flexibility. A 300 mm telephoto lens is highly recommended. • Use your vehicle as a blind – meaning stay in the car. If the animals see/hear you getting out, they’re more likely to run. Use the window, rolled down to an appropriate height, to stabilize your lens and reduce shakiness. You may want to use something over the top of the window ledge as well, such as a bean bag or half-pipe. Do everything you can to minimize shake in order to maximize the sharpness your images. • Practice on the birds or squirrels in your backyard. • Some of the most compelling wildlife photos capture the animals in action, rather than just standing still. Although it takes a little more skill to get a quality action shot, it also opens up more options for the type of images you can create.

The short answer — as it relates to a wild Texas quail — is $253 each, according to a recently completed survey of Texas quail hunters. Drs. Dale Rollins, a Texas AgriLife Extension Service wildlife specialist, Jason Johnson, an AgriLife Extension economist, and Kelly Reyna with the department of biological science at the University of North Texas, conducted two surveys of quail hunters in 2000 and again in 2011. The survey revealed that 97 percent of Texas quail hunters are white males with reported household incomes of over $100,000. Each averaged spending about $8,606 for 8.8 days of quail hunting during the 2010-2011 season. Combined with harvest estimates the respondents provided, this resulted in the $253 per bird bagged – or a dollar increase of 24 percent over the 10 years since the first survey. “These surveys underscore the passion and commitment quail hunters have for their favorite game birds,” Rollins said. “Such commitment equates to the quail’s high value and this segment of hunters’ willingness to pay for a quality quail-hunting experience.” Johnson said the dollars spent by those involved in the sport and the traditions surrounding it truly position quail as one of the most coveted hunted species in the U.S. “The impact that these hunting expenditures have on quail-hunting destination counties and those communities within those counties is huge,” Johnson said. “The latest survey showed that 46 percent of the quail hunting dollars are spent at the hunting destination with another 18 percent going to communities located between the hunter’s home and destination. This represents a tremendous economic impact to largely rural communities. In fact, it’s one of the rare instances of money flowing from the urban areas where the hunters live to the rural areas where the quail are.” But there is one huge dark cloud weighing heavily over all hunters of wild quail and the communities they impact and that’s the lack of birds, Rollins said.“Today, bobwhite abundance is only a remnant of what it was just 30 years ago for most of the southeastern U.S.,” he said. – AgriLife Today For more information about the quail research ranch, see www.quailresearch.org.

ohio cattlemen’S aSSociation Year-end

More than 300 producers and leaders in the beef industry attended the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s (OCA) annual meeting and awards banquet on Jan. 28. The event featured policy development sessions, OCA’s annual meeting and the OCA’s award banquet. Colin Woodall, NCBA Vice President of Governmental Affairs, gave an update on NCBA activities as well as discussed many of the issues NCBA is working on for the beef industry. Woodall’s top policy areas included GIPSA, the 2012 farm bill, animal welfare, death tax, child labor regulations and the transportation bill. OCA’s officers reported that 2011 was a very strong year financially for the association and membership renewals for 2012 are on track with previous years. The Beef Improvement Committee gave an update on the Seedstock Improvement Sales and the


Ohio Beef Expo. OCA President Dave Felumlee coordinated the policy development portion of the OCA Annual Meeting. These resolutions covered a broad range from agriculture policy to cattle health, international markets, live cattle marketing and property rights and environmental issues. In addition, the members held a discussion about seeking an increase in the state beef checkoff. Information on current checkoff funded programs was presented, as well as a review of the last 25 years of the national checkoff program. The buying power of the beef checkoff has eroded to the point that the $1 checkoff purchases 47 cents of what it did in 1985 when it was started. OCA policy was adopted to seek an increase in the state beef checkoff. Paige Guenther of Hardin County was crowned 2012 Ohio Beef Queen. Guenther’s court includes first runner-up Erica Clouse of Guernsey County, and second runner-up Haley Beck of Huron County. Eleven scholarships were presented to outstanding youth during the awards banquet. Steve R. Rauch Benchmark of Excellence scholarship recipients included: Krystin Bachman, Fairfield County; Bailey Harsh, Delaware County; and Lindsey Grimes, Highland County. Brandom Klehm, Minerva; Dara Howser, Mount Orab; Jessica Harsh, Radnor; and Lacey Uhler, Wooster were awarded $1,000 Tagged for Greatness Scholarships, which are funded with the sales of the Ohio Beef license plate. Lydia Ulry, Johnstown; Rebecca Auck, Tiro; and Shyla Kreager, Newark received a $1,000 Country Club Scholarship, which was funded by the putt putt course at the 2011 Ohio State Fair. The Ohio CattleWomen’s Association awarded a scholarship to Mollie DePue of Hamden. Sutherly Brothers LLC of Troy received the Commercial Cattleman of the Year award, while Turkey Run Angus Farm of Otway was awarded Seedstock Producer of the Year.

O

ptimal Embryo Production Requires Exceptional Donor Care

Tech Trends

Producing large numbers of valuable calves through embryo transfer can be exciting and extremely rewarding. Because this requires a substantial investment of both time and money, breeders strive to get the highest return on investment. One way to accomplish this is by maximizing the number of embryos produced from each embryo collection or “flush.” Proper care of the donor cow can help enhance her level of embryo production, without requiring additional investment. Attention to detail when working with these special cows should actually begin during gestation. During this period, it’s important to evaluate the donor’s body condition by analyzing things such as excess weight being carried, lack of condition, or any potential vitamin and mineral deficiencies that may be visible. Then, a plan should be developed to either safely remove those excess pounds or increase feed and nutritional intake to meet anticipated pre-calving and pre-lactation needs. When considering a diet for donors, the key times to accentuate the nutritional value within the diet are 60 days prior to calving, the first 60 days postpartum (after calving), and the 60 days prior to embryo collection. Look at body condition It is crucial to closely monitor nutritional and body condition factors because they have a unique impact on a donor’s ability to produce viable embryos. Overly conditioned cows tend to be less prolific embryo producers than those with ideal body condition. Not only do they yield fewer embryos, but these animals have more difficulty getting bred back and can run into problems at calving. Excess pelvic fat surrounding the uterus causes the reproductive tract to lose its healthy tone, which causes a donor to exhibit estrus or standing heat poorly. In terms of body condition score (BCS), a score of 4-7 is generally desired as a rule of thumb. Anything lower than that will be found in very thin cows, and anything higher than that will be found in very fat cows. Keep it clean In preparation for calving, paying detailed attention to the cleanliness of the calving area and sanitation of equipment will greatly reduce postpartum metritis (inflammation of the uterus). Potential donors should be inspected by a veterinarian 30 days postpartum to ensure the cow’s uterus has neared involution (return to normal size). Usually, cows will cycle back between day 21 and day 60 postpartum, thus it’s essential to carefully detect heats during this 4-6 week period. Often, the first estrus (heat) cycle is silent with no standing heat easily observed. If day 60 arrives and no estrus cycle has been observed, the donor should be palpated for ovarian status to determine if any treatment is needed. Embryo transfer specialists usually wait until after day 60, or the second estrus is observed, to begin with super-

238 March 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

ovulation injections, which results in better ovarian response. Donor cycles can vary greatly from cow to cow, depending on factors such as body condition, nutritional diet, milk production, and even weather. Some donor cows that cycle as early as day 21 after calving may certainly be ready to superovulate earlier than day 60, while others may take far more time. First-calf heifers in particular may need a little more time than older cows. Cow comfort is the key Keeping donor cows comfortable during the embryo transfer process has been found to be the single greatest factor that influences donor embryo production. Cow comfort includes providing clean, comfortable bedding; controlling parasites; ensuring proper hoof care; and making sure animals have relief from heat stress or extreme cold and wind chill. If cows are kept comfortable, your embryo results will be enhanced. Once the flush has been performed and the embryos retrieved, it is often a good time to inject or infuse a prostaglandin product to help regulate the donor’s estrous cycle. Normally, a donor should cycle between 3-14 days following the injection, thus those failing to cycle should be immediately examined. Repeated superovulation attempts can cause a donor to develop cystic ovaries, which can be diagnosed and treated effectively provided that examinations are done within an adequate period of time. If you choose to breed the donor for a calf immediately following an embryo flush or collection, this can be done on the first estrus cycle following collection. Breeders should keep in mind that there may be a lower conception rate and increased chance of the donor “twinning” due to the latent effects of super-ovulation. Waiting until the second heat following embryo flush or collection will allow time for the donor to readjust to a near normal estrus cycle. Professional care Utilizing the controlled and management intensive environment of an embryo transfer center will ensure that donors will receive professional care and service on a daily basis. For example, at Trans Ova Genetics, donors are monitored by embryo practitioners and trained donor herdsmen. They receive a balanced nutrition program and regular palpations to ensure that any necessary treatments and adjustments are made as accurately and quickly as possible. When conventional embryo transfer techniques are not effective, the practitioners at the facilities may be able to qualify the donors for more tailored programs such as in vitro fertilization. Breeders and owners should provide their donor cattle the best care possible, including proper nutrition and a comfortable environment. This will help ensure optimal embryo production and, in turn, a good return on the investment made in multiplying these elite genetics.

This column is the first 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.

An AnimAl TrAiner for The film indusTry

If you’ve ever dreamed of training animals for a living or even working in the movie business, Ronnie Reeves is someone you should get to know. Ronnie grew up in the Texas Hill Country helping with his family’s riding stable, rodeoing and training horses. A random call for horse “extras” brought him into contact with Hollywood and now he spends up to nine months out of the year on location all across the country, providing animals and training to movies and television shows. He has trained animals (and, by extension, actors) for movies and television shows such as “There Will Be Blood,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Mad Money,” “The Ringer,” “Seven Days in Utopia,” and “Temple Grandin.” Reeves even used some of his Simbrah cattle in the Temple Grandin movie. In fact, most of the animals that he provides and trains for movies and television are his own, including cattle, horses, dogs, prairie dogs, chinchillas and raccoons. SC: How did you get into this line of work? Reeves: I got into the movies by accident. I was working for a rodeo company and a show was being done not far from where we lived. They needed a bunch of horses for the show and I ended up taking some over there. SC: What do you like about your job? Reeves: It’s the reward you get seeing people watching your animals and what they can do. Watching your animals perform is like sending out a kid that you taught and see them do what you taught them all on their own. It’s also rewarding to see kids falling in love with the animals and then wanting to learn how to train their own dog because of what they saw in the show. And I’m always happy to take questions from kids and help them. SC: Do you need a college degree in your profession? Reeves: You know, it used to be that you had to go to college. Nowadays, there are so many different careers that you don’t necessarily need four years of college to be successful in. A lot of kids I know have a degree, but can’t find a job. People probably need to go back and learn a trade like plumbing or something and learn how to get their hands dirty again. In the film industry, there are a lot of opportunities for someone who’s willing to be tenacious. It was six years between my first job in the film industry and my second job. There are all kinds of things you can do if you’re willing to start at the bottom and work your way up to the top, everything from camera work to crafts to accounting and everything inbetween. It’s been fun to watch people grow up in the business – kids who started out as a producer’s assistant (PA) that are now the boss. I never discourage anybody. When they first get in the business, they do stupid

240 March 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

stuff because they just don’t know better. But if they stick with it and learn the ropes, it can be a good career. SC: Where should somebody go to get started in your line of work? Reeves: I would suggest getting in touch with the film commission (there is one in each state) or a film school. The best way to get in is as an intern. Get in touch with animal trainers; any show that uses animals always needs assistants to hold the animals, etc. If you’re interested, get a job as a PA or intern just to see what it’s all about. Find out if you even like the movie business before you get into training animals. SC: Any tips on training? Reeves: It depends on what you want to train. You can actually take the basics of training a horse and apply it to cows. Cattle are one of the easiest animals to train because they won’t fight you as much as a horse, they’re more subtle and they will really work for feed. If you stop and think about it, when you cake your cows, there are little things you do a certain way every time and don’t even think about it. Ranchers take it for granted that’s just the way cows are. But, really, you have trained them to be that way. You can outwait them. I train a lot in round pens. The first time I go in, I don’t say “I have one hour to do this.” I go until it’s done. Once they


the

top

list

show ring superstitions give in to what you’re trying to get them to do, then that’s it for the day. But if you quit them (without finishing the job), it will take you two or three times as long to get it the next time. I have spent five or six hours in a round pen with a horse just trying to get him to do one thing. But it’s worth it. You can’t train any animal in a week. It takes a lot of time, doing the same thing over and over again. Once you realize that, the training time seems to go a lot faster. Some animals learn faster than others, which is important to me because in the movies they may change what they want you to do. Animals are relaxed most of the time, but if you do anything over and over again they will figure out real quick what you’re trying to do and beat you to the punch. I tell directors not to always yell “Action,” for example. Just mixing in different words will keep it fresh in the animal’s mind. The first thing I always tell a director is that animals are not like people. The animal is not happy to be there; he’s not excited about being in the movies. He is just there to do his job. SC: What is a typical day on the job like for you? Reeves: When you’re shooting a movie, you’re looking at 16-hour days, including prep time and tear-down time. You start at 5 a.m. in order to be ready to film at 8. If you quit at 8 p.m., then you’ve got another couple of hours to put the cattle up and feed. However, the animals will only be working maybe an hour and a half during that day. There are strict guidelines that prevent animals from being overworked or mistreated. We try to go in and lease a set of pens, a barn, preferably an indoor arena to board the horses and cattle where we can also train and work them. We have to ship in all the feed and hay because the places we go to don’t normally carry the same feed that we use at home. And I think it’s important to keep them on the feed they’re used to. Interesting side note: In one film, Reeves had a cow that was supposed to stand in the middle of the road while a car came zooming up, swerved off to the side and landed in a lake. The director decided he wanted to get a camera shot from the cow’s perspective as the car came toward her. That involved running a camera track between the cow’s legs. Then, the director wanted another shot taken from the car’s perspective just before it almost hit the cow. “He wanted the cow to open her eyes and mouth large,” Reeves said. “So, I had to understand both how cows work and how cameras work and how to bring that together. I had an assistant honk the truck like we do to call them to cake. The cow mooed, which meant her mouth was open and so were her eyes. We got it in one shot.

Labor Department to re-propose ‘parentaL exemption’ of chiLD Labor in agricuLture ruLe

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division announced on February 1 that it “will re-propose the portion of its regulation on child labor in agriculture interpreting the ‘parental exemption.’ The decision to re-propose is in part a response to requests from the public and members of Congress that the agency allow an opportunity for more input on this aspect of the rule. “The parental exemption allows children of any age who are employed by their parent, or a person standing in the place of a parent, to perform any job on a farm owned or operated by their parent or such person standing in the place of a parent. Congress created the parental exemption in 1966 when it expanded protections for children employed in agriculture and prohibited their employment in jobs the Department of Labor declared particularly hazardous for children under the age of 16 to perform. “The department recognizes the unique attributes of farm families and rural communities. The re-proposal process will seek comments and inputs as to how the department can comply with statutory requirements to protect children, while respecting rural traditions. The re-proposed portion of the rule is expected to be published for public comment by early summer. The department will continue to review the comments received regarding the remaining portions of the proposed rule for inclusion in a final rule. “Until the revised exemption is final, the Wage and Hour Division will apply the parental exemption to situations in which the parent or person standing in the place of a parent is a part owner of the farm, a partner in a partnership or an officer of a corporation that owns the farm if the ownership interest in the partnership or corporation is substantial. This approach is consistent with guidance the Wage and Hour Division has provided to the public on its website for the past several years. “The Department of Labor appreciates and respects the role of parents in raising their children and assigning tasks and chores to their children on farms and of relatives such as grandparents, aunts and uncles in keeping grandchildren, nieces and nephews out of harm’s way,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “Today’s announcement to re-propose the parental exemption means the department will have the benefit of additional public comment, and the public will have an opportunity to consider a revised approach to this issue. We will continue to work closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure that our child labor in agriculture rule generally, and the parental exemption specifically, fully reflect input from rural communities.” Bottom line: Keep submitting input to the Labor Department and your elected representatives in Washington.

animaL rights terrorists attack harris farms

The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has taken credit for an arson fire that damaged 14 tractors and cattle trailers at Harris Farms, in Fresno County – the largest family-owned agribusiness in the country and the largest cattle feeder, processor and marketer of beef in California. The fire started around 4 a.m. on January 9 when, according to an anonymous letter posted on the website of the North American Animal Liberation press office, “containers of accelerant were placed beneath a row of 14 trucks with 4 digital timers used to light four of the containers and kerosene-soaked rope carrying the fire to the other 10. We were extremely pleased to see that all 14 trucks ‘were a total loss,’ with some being ‘completely melted to the ground.’ “We’re not delusional enough to believe that this action will shut down the [H]arris feeding company, let alone have any effect on factory farming as a whole. [B]ut we maintain that this type of action still has worth,” the statement reads. Owner John Harris released the following statement in response: “All of us at Harris Ranch are very gratified with the tremendous support so many have given us following the horrific truck bombing that occurred on our trucks last Sunday morning. Our operations are all back to normal and we are very blessed that no one was injured in this mindless violence. “We live in a free society and firmly believe in free speech rights, but that does not include the destruction of others’ property or making threats. A civil society cannot tolerate the egregious behavior and destructive mind set some of these radical groups espouse. We must all admire and defend our Constitutional Rights, and we can never tolerate anarchy. Anarchists leading radical movements care little about anyone’s rights, they just want to generate publicity for themselves. “The vast majority of this wonderful country are really good people with strong values, and I know they won’t allow a senseless mindset manifested in things like the shocking arson committed last Sunday morning to ever become the norm. “We are very mindful of good animal welfare practices and constantly ensure very humane treatment for our cattle every day. We have utilized world famous animal behaviorist, Dr. Temple Grandin to design and review every aspect of our beef production operation. The beef segment of U.S. agriculture employs hundreds of thousands of Americans and it results in a world class product with exemplary flavor and the highest food safety standards. “I love animals and feel humans need to be good guardians of their welfare, but humans and animals are not the same. Cattle are not human beings and are raised for food, and wouldn’t be here except for that. They provide a vital protein source that has enabled a better life for humans for thousands of years.”

GLUCoat is easily the most economical, simplest, and most customer satisfied product compared to ANY fat supplement on the market.

• GLUCoat is not a fat product. Too much fat in the diet slows the rumen down. • GLUCoat is a sugar product. The unique blend of sugars keep the rumen working longer and faster than just a single source of glucose such as cane molasses. This can increase appetite and palatability. It has been shown to dramatically enhance fat cover, increase feed efficiency and average daily gain. • GLUCoat also has the Cellarator technology as it contains the active ingredient Cell-rate, which aids in the process of cellular replication, supports the animals immune system, helps animals get through stressful periods and aids in muscle and fat development. • GLUCoat has a refined flavored fish oil that contains the highest levels of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and naturally accruing Vitamin E which helps maintain a brighter healthier skin and hair. • GLUCoat can also increase glucose levels which is stored in the body as fat, giving livestock that bloomier, fuller, softer look while maintaining that harder muscle shape that is demanded in the show ring today. • GLUCoat is molasses based and sweet to the taste, they love it! • GLUCoat is the next level or generation to a fat source or supplement. You will never use a fat product again! Your calf, sheep, or goat will feel better, act better and their eating habits will change. For ordering these product, visit our website, www.naturalsolutionsforlivestock.com, for a dealer locator or go to our National Distributors -

Reserve Grand Champion Steer, 2011 NAILE Shown by Ashtin Guyer

“I have been showing cattle for 25 years and I know, that without Stretch Ashtin’s steer wouldn’t have won at NAILE. It kept the gut working as we were trying to meet all the weight back requirements. I truly give Stretch all the credit on this big win.” – Dave Guyer

get on the team and ask for it at any ShowRite or Sullivan dealer today!! Stretch will do more than any other fill product out there. Plus with the extra probotics it keeps the gut going. Take out 2 scoops per feeding from the feed ration 3 days prior to the show and add 1 scoop of Stretch; increase Stretch for the more desireable show day fill that you are looking for. If you are using a fill product on show morning only then its too late ... Prepare for show day! Stretch also can be used as an economical source of filler in a holding ration. Yes it cost more than beet pulp up front but you don’t have to use as much because it expands 3 times more. Stretch can be fed to cattle, sheep, goats and pigs.

Ask for this product at any ShowRite or Sullivan Supply dealer.

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!
