Hair Quality IS Important.

Same successful formula’s, with an added Vitamin Package to help boost the quality of hair.

10 November/December 2011 • theshowcircuit.com


Introducing ...

VITA HAIR™ is an advanced nutrient package that

infuses the hair with proven hair vitamins for ... • Faster Hair Growth • Thicker Hair • Increased Shine • More Body & Volume • Healthier Skin • Improved Nutrient Absorption

How do the VITA HAIR™ Nourishing Vitamins work? Biotin vitamin is the first vitamin thought of when considering HAIR GROWTH. The major benefit of Biotin is its ability to strengthen both the hair follicle and the hair shaft, where the hair is produced, which prevents hair breakage and dryness. This is a scientifically proven crucial step in the natural hair growing process. One of the chief things that slows hair growth is damaged hair. Biotin enriched hair has increased elasticity of the cortex which prevents breakage. This enables healthy, FASTER HAIR GROWTH. Biotin also thickens the actual hair cuticle providing a fuller appearance.

We take our job seriously ... the INNOVATIVE Leader.

Pro-Vitamin B-5 is considered the king of all HAIR CARE vitamins. Pro-Vitamin B-5 stimulates healthy scalp circulation which leads to improved hair health. It coats the hair and seals its surface, lubricating the hair shaft making the hair shine. It possesses superior long term moisturizing properties because of its unique ability to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates circulation to the skin and supports capillary growth. The skin needs to have proper circulation in order to keep the hair follicles alive and thriving. When there are more capillaries, the circulation improves leading to increased nutrient absorption into the hair follicles, which speeds hair growth.

Showmanship Points by Division Oklahoma Club Calf Association - October 2011

I hope this finds everyone well and wetter than we are here in Oklahoma. I am tired of talking about dry. It will rain someday. Many of you are at your State Fairs or just finishing up. I hope you were very successful at the fairs. The youth of Oklahoma are at the Tulsa State Fair, as of this writing. Good luck to them, while they are there. The fall run of jackpot show is right around the corner. Check our website (www.oklahomaclubcalfassociation.com) for dates and locations. Again, we want to thank our Platinum Sponsors for all their help: Purina Show Feeds, Cinch Jeans, Cruel Girl and CM Trailers. Without the support, we could not help all the kids we do. Again, THANKS! Keep praying for rain, and be careful going and coming home from the shows. Good luck!

Tim B Stidham, OCCA President

the top 10

reasons to eat BEEF

Because we don’t live in the 18th century anymore. By the time President Lincoln established Thanksgiving as a national holiday in 1863, Americans were used to eating turkey for their celebrations because cattle were more valuable alive at that time for dairy (as were chickens for eggs). Plus, turkeys were cheaper than geese, and they didn’t have to be hunted like venison.

no.

10

no.

9

Whoever heard of leftover steak?

no.

8

Trust me, nobody really wants to stick their hand in there and pull out the giblets. Yuck!

no.

7

Beef is the food supply’s most easily absorbed source of iron.

no.

6

Beef eaters are 11% more likely to meet nutrient requirements for protein than non-beef eaters.

no.

5

Because PETA claims that turkeys are “smart, sociable, playful and like to gobble along to their favorite tunes.” I have to admit, I would bet on the turkey having enough sense to come in out of the rain… PETA people, not so much.

The ChrisTmas heifer

The life of

I think it’s pretty normal for most livestock kids to hope, wish and pray that Santa is somehow going to manage to fit a new Sullivan Supply blower, show box, pig whip or heifer under the Christmas tree. And, somehow, each year Santa works a miracle or two. My Christmas heifer was actually a gift shared with my sister, Stacy. It was the week before Christmas, and my family was consigning in a Simmental sale called Checkers. The point was to get some cattle sold that day; but honestly why would you go home with an empty trailer? A red baldy heifer calf by the name of Gloss had caught my and Stacy’s eyes. She was perfect – or at least perfect in an 11-year-old’s mind. Steve Dorran was the auctioneer that day and overheard my sister and I pleading with my parents to allow Gloss to come home with us. We even foolishly promised they could take all of our Christmas presents back if we could have her. It probably would not have been a good Christmas morning if that really did happen. The sale started, and mom and dad decided that we could bid on Gloss, but we would have to do the bidding ourselves. A few lots before Gloss came into the ring my dad said, “Okay, you have to listen to the auctioneer so you know what you are bidding.” After each lot sold, my dad would ask: “What did that one bring?” Stacy’s response: “Not a clue.” Therefore, it was determined I should bid. Gloss entered the ring, and there she was. We were on the edge of our seats, in the front row, and the auction began. I turned in my bid and waited my turn, and then another bid, all while my little sister kept poking my side whispering, “Bid, bid, bid!” The hammer came down, and Gloss was ours. What an exciting moment! And then I’ll never forget the moment that Steve looked right at us from his perch on the block, and said, “Well girls, I guess all the Christmas presents are going back.” Gloss raised us a few bull calves, put some money in the college fund, and then we resold her back in that sale a few years later. My school friends and cousins always thought my Christmas wish list was a little odd. Yet, that is what the livestock business does to you. I had such a passion for cattle that it consumed every part of my life. Livestock was – and still is – my passion. I mean, I am 26 years old and seriously considering ask for one of Purple Banner Design’s stuffed cows for Christmas, because they are so ridiculously cute. Maybe I’ll even ask for a baldy heifer.

Although the cattle will still need fed Christmas morning, it will be a time to sit down with family and friends and reflect on all the wonderful things we have to be thankful for – including being a part of agriculture. Each month I want to give you the tools to help tell agriculture’s story and reach your goals. We need young people to continue to find success in agriculture, so they can lead us into the future.

the buzz outside the barn We know it’s not always about show cattle, sire promotions, and show results. There are also lots of agriculture-related books and movies that we think are worth giving our two cents on. Enjoy!

a good read The Black STallion

By Walter & Steve Farley

aBouT The Book… You don’t have to be a horse person to enjoy this classic from Walter Farley. In our family, this book and many of the sequels in the series have been handed down to the third generation, and we’ve all enjoyed the thrilling adventures of young Alec Ramsey and the wild Arabian stallion, The Black, with whom he formed a once-in-a-lifetime bond. According to The Black Stallion website, Walter Farley wrote this book on the kitchen table when he was only 16. It was published in 1941 when he was a college student. The author’s son, Tim Farley, says of his famous dad: “His horse and his imagination carried him around the world and introduced him to trainers, jockeys, movie stars, even kings and presidents!” The STory... Alec Ramsey is rescued from a shipwreck, on his way home from India, by a wild black stallion that was stolen from a prominent Arabian chieftain by an enemy. Alec and The Black make it back to his home in New York, and with the help of a retired racehorse trainer who happens to be Alec’s neighbor, the boy and his horse turn the racing world upside down. But will he be able to keep The Black or will his horse have to go back to his desert homeland? It’s a thrilling adventure, and Farley’s tremendous writing makes you feel like you’re riding The Black right alongside Alec in the race of the century. The SerieS... Walter Farley and his son, Steven, have written dozens of books in The Black Stallion series. Enjoy one or all of them! 1. The Black Stallion (1941) 12. The Black Stallion’s Courage (1956) 2. The Black Stallion Returns (1945) 13. The Black Stallion Mystery (1957) 3. Son of the Black Stallion (1947) 14. The Horse Tamer (1958) 4. The Island Stallion (1948) 15.

The Black STallion

It’s no substitute for the book series, but this film from 1979 featuring Mickey Rooney is a classic in its own right. you may noT know... • The Black was portrayed by a champion Arabian stallion from Texas named Cass-Ole; his friend, the old white horse named Napoleon, was portrayed by Junior - who had previously appeared in National Lampoon’s Animal House as Trooper, Neidermeyer’s horse. • Cass Ole, like most horses, had his mane trimmed into what’s called a bridle path. This makes it easier to fit a bridle. For the mov-

ie, Cass Ole had to wear “hair extensions” to make his mane look like a wild horse’s mane. He also had white markings on his legs and forehead and the white needed to be covered with a black hair dye to transform Cass Ole into the Black Stallion. • The scene with the cobra took two days to film, because the cobra refused to spread its hood for the longest time. During filming, Kelly Reno was separated from the snake by a pane of glass.


sweet tunes wildflower The debut album from Lauren Alaina, American Idol runner-up. iTunes describes Wildflower as “an impressive showcase of Lauren’s talents,” adding “She’s a little bit country, a whole lot of rock and roll -- expressing life through the lens of a country girl with big-city ambitions.”

eleven Martina McBride’s eleventh studio album with a new co-producer focuses on her songwriting talents – more than half of the songs are co-written by her. Great American Country reviewer Daryl Addison says, “Supported by loose acoustic guitars and bursting drums, Martina sings with a little teenage attitude, ‘At seventeen she’s just like me when I was seventeen, so I don’t blame her,’ when discussing dealing with her daughters’ mischievous sides.” He also adds, “Martina takes chances and incorporates different flavors into the album…. With some new members to her team and a new emphasis on songwriting, Martina evolves her signature sound on Eleven while looking to the future.”

between the pages and cooperation, I have an avenue to better market cattle and get more numbers to better serve my northern customers,” Dave says.

A desire to help Hitting a big one Dave developed a passion for raising and showing cattle early on and worked with several mentors that fueled his fire. “I remember, as a kid, sitting on the curb at the Illinois Beef Expo and watching the big wheels clip and fit and thinking I wish I could do that,” he says. Dave became a student of the livestock industry, learning as much as he could from as many cattlemen as possible, like Jim and Bob Horsley, Tom Fitzpatrick and Lloyd Stone. “I remember the first time I got chewed for not getting one washed out right,” he says. “You live and you learn. We didn’t have educational programs back then.” Dave says he traveled to a lot of shows and worked on cattle for free. He never asked for payment. He just wanted to learn. Payment eventually came in the form of a puppy Jim Horsley gave him for all of his hard work. He also recalls his first trip to the North American International Livestock Exposition in the mid 1980s. He recalls how things were different then. He didn’t have Andis 2-speeds at the time. All he had to clip with were a pair of flat heads. He cut his eye-teeth with them. “When I went to Louisville for the first time, all I was worried about was finding someone that had a pair of sheep heads instead of me clipping with a pair of flatheats turned upside down,” Dave remembers. Working for those cattleman paid off. The highlight of his 4-H career was winning the Chianina junior show at Lousville. “I learned so much from them.”

Dave’s early success was in smaller rings, but he sold his first “high-dollar” calf in cooperation with Regan Bowman (now his brother-in-law) to Bob May in the early 1990s, which won the State Fair of Texas. He says it was off to the races from there. “I was working for Moorman Feeds at the time and knew I had to either focus on the job or dedicate myself to the livestock industry,” he explains. For Dave, the choice was simple. He quit his job and formed Guyer Cattle Company.

The cattle In 1994, he moved to Tipton, Ind. He says this was a great location for sales and built a strong customer base. He met his wife, Lucy, in 1999, and in 2000 they bought his family’s farm. This move allowed him to establish a cow herd of nearly 300 head and focus on the production side of the business. Over the past decade, Guyer Cattle Company has had their finger in a champion at almost every major show across rhe country and has won every Midwestern state fair. “One of the people who helped us acquire such a track record in recent years was Chad Day. He started as a young 4-Her who bought calves from me and ended up playing a major role in the modern-day success of Guyer Cattle Company.” Through his Chosen Few sale and steer and heifer bid-off sale, combined with his partnership with Steve Bonham, Dave markets cattle all over the country. “With Steve’s relationship

Through his cattle, Dave ventured into other avenues of the livestock business. He values youth education and giving back to the industry. “I have a real passion for kids and education in the livestock industry,” he says. “This industry teaches responsibility and life lessons.” He held his first fitting and livestock care clinic eight years ago, when he became an ambassador with Kirk Stierwalt. “I’ve been hosting clinics ever since. Whether it’s through 4-H clubs, feed company sponsorships or Stock Show U, I’ll always want to find a way to help kids,” Dave declares. “I’m very proud of the young people that I’ve worked closely with over the years that have gone on to be very successful in the livestock industry today.” His clinics cover topics that range from selection, feedings, daily care, fitting, clipping and showmanship. Dave is also passing the gift of giving on to his daughter, Ashtin. She won her county fair steer show this year and with the help of her dad, set up a scholarship fund for the county 4-H program with the proceeds from the sale of her steer. “With the establishment of this scholarship, we hope to set an example for 4-H programs across the state,” he says. “If we don’t do something for the kids, a lot of the programs will go downhill.”

Building a brand Dave’s most recent business venture is with Natural Solutions for Livestock, a company he developed from the ground up. “A friend called me one day with an idea for creating a product for joints,” he asserts. “My initial thought was that I didn’t need another thing to do, but I gave it a little more thought and decided to set up a meeting. Before I knew it, we came up with Natural Stride, the beginning of Natural Solutions.” Dave’s goal was to sell one ton of the product across the country in the first year. If he met that goal, he would continue the business – if not, he would just walk away. The product was an instant success and sold 15.5 tons in the first year. From there, Natural Solutions for Livestock was born and added products like GLUCoat, Hide and Hair, and endorsement of products such as ShowRite show feed. Dave is currently preparing for the release of equine and canine Natural Stride. “What started out as a bucket of product has turned into several lines of merchandise, four full-time and one part-time employee and will reach $1 million in sales by the end of this year,” he offers. Dave says he is fortunate to have other companies like Sullivan Show Supply, Valley Vet and ShowRite Feed Stores sell his

products nationwide. Dave currently focuses more on the marketing of Guyer Cattle Company and Natural Solutions for Livestock. He’s cut back on his cow numbers and relies more on embryo transfer.

The Way To the Top Dave attributes his success with Guyer Cattle Company and Natural Solutions for Livestock to the way he conducted business as a young person. “When I was just starting out, I was the new kid on the block, but I conducted business in a respectable way and stood behind everything I sold – and I still do,” he says. Dave finds it hard to believe that he’s been doing what he loves for so long and that raising cattle has brought forth so many opportunities. At one time his dad had told him to enjoy showing cattle but not get caught up in it, because he couldn’t make a living at it. But Dave always knew he could, although he never dreamed he would spend more time on the road or in the office than in the barn. But, he really enjoys the marketing side of the business and working with people. “It’s my job, but the people keep me going, and I’m dedicated to the success of the people that support my business,” Dave professes.

A family man

Dave and his wife Lucy have two children – Ashtin, 10 and Nalaney, 7. He says the most challenging part of operating two businesses is the time it takes away from his family. For that reason, the Guyers have recently decided to focus their attention on promotion rather than production, and they will be selling their top-end cows in their upcoming Chosen Few Sale. “With not having to spend so much physical time on our own cow herd we will be focused on helping our customers move onward and upward.” But make no mistake - livestock also is what brings the family together. “Some people buy boats and take vacations for family time, but we go to livestock shows,” he says. “And that’s what the girls want to do. They love showing livestock and working in the barn.” Five years ago, the Guyers thought it would be cute to watch a 5-year-old Ashtin follow a pig around the show ring, and today working with and showing pigs has become one of the family’s favorite get-aways from the cattle barn. He looks forward to many more stock shows with his children and feels blessed to have his family be such a large part of his businesses. Dave’s parents, Delane and Elle, have always been a great support system and helped him get started in the beginning.

His aunt Joan is the best office manager he could ask for, and Lucy keeps everything running while he’s on the road. “I just can’t brag enough about Lucy,” he says. “She’s the glue in our family. She tends to the home front, the cattle and the kids. I always tell the people, don’t try to out-work her because you can’t do it.” With his family’s support, Dave says, his career has evolved to what it is today. “I’m just going to keep doing what I’ve always been doing,” he says. “I enjoy the livestock industry and will always stay in it for the families and the kids.” Chances are, if Dave continues doing what he does best – working hard, treating others with respect and conducting honest business – he’ll be educating youth and helping livestock families succeed for years to come.

Whether it’s show day and everyone’s nerves are on edge, or two sisters are fighting about doing chores on a cold, winter morning, families can experience plenty of stress and strain in this adventure of raising kids and livestock through the show ring. Here are some ideas to reduce the wear and tear on your family.

It can happen to the best of us – what should be a great day of competition turns into a big, hairy commotion because the steer isn’t ready for his class on time. Pointed fingers, hurt feelings, a very frazzled showman and a long, tense drive home result. What fun. Or, as a parent you find yourself in the midst (for the umpteenth time) of a knock-down, drag-out fight between your kids about whose turn it is to clean out the stalls. Nobody told you that being a referee is part of the parent job description. It’s tiring, unpleasant and sucks the joy right out of working with your kids and their heifers or steers. While there is no magic cure for keeping siblings at peace with one another, teaching kids to live up to their responsibilities or zapping every bit of stress out of show day, we contacted a few experienced show parents for their best advice. We even found a few books with some good ideas for you about communicating (and coping) with your teenagers and middle schoolers. (If you have some tips to offer that we miss, please share them with us on our Facebook page.)

Keeping things in perspective

People can have differing opinions about the ideal animal or best breed, but one thing we should all agree on is the reason we are doing this – to give our kids and our families an opportunity to learn and grow together in an amazing environment. We are making memories, forging friendships and developing skills that will last a lifetime, and that is more important than anything else. Something else anybody who’s ever hit the road should agree on is that it is almost guaranteed once that loaded trailer pulls out onto the highway, something WILL go wrong. It might be a flat tire 50 miles down the road in the heat of summer; it may be someone accidentally set up in your assigned stalls; it could be that your daughter falls out of a semi-trailer while getting shavings and cuts her knee bad enough to require treatment, at midnight, in an unfamiliar town; it could be that your alarm clock doesn’t go off on show morning. The family’s ability to roll with the punches is vital. It’s either that or be miserable together. The point is whatever happens shouldn’t overshadow the reason your family is doing this. And parents should realize that how they respond to a problem now, in the show barn, is teaching or modeling for their kids how to respond to stressful events in their life outside the barn, too.


Show day Whether it’s a weekend prospect show or the biggest exposition of the year, show day is probably the most challenging time for livestock families. Parents are stressed to make sure all the preparations are handled leading up to the moment the kid and their animal step into the ring. The kids may be nervous about how their steers will behave in the ring, whether they can get the feet set right, if they’ll make the sale, etc. Expectations and adrenaline are on high alert! Here is how the Cozzitorto family from Lenexa, Kan., handles the stress that can come with show days. “You need to have realistic goals about the showman’s ability and your cattle’s potential,” explains Rick Cozzitorto, father of Angus exhibitor, Alexandria. “You’re not going to win every show.” Be prepared. Make sure each one #2 of your team/family members knows their show day responsibilities. Allow plenty of preparation time based on skill levels.

#1

The Vaught family of McLouth, Kan., includes two daughters that show cattle and sheep – Annabelle, 11, and Madison, 10. Their mom, Caryn, says she typically fills the “runner” role, keeping everyone on track as to what class the judge is on and taking photos for record books, etc. She also makes a point to prepare the girls – and their tummies – for the ring ahead of time. “In the beginning of the girls’ show careers, they would get stomachaches,” Caryn explains. “I would typically carry over-thecounter nausea medicine with me. I still make sure to carry it, along with Tylenol or Ibuprofen. I also make sure to have small

cans of Coke or Sprite on hand to help with those upset stomachs/jittery nerves. These are my cure-all medicines. “I will always take the girls up and have them watch a few classes well in advance of their own classes,” she adds. “We talk about who the judge is and what to do and not to do. This seems to really help ease their minds on how the ring is set up and who is judging.” That’s good advice for even the most experienced showmen. I never wanted to walk into the ring without having watched a class to know how/where the judge was lining the cattle up, if he pulled from top“Have a supply checklist to refer to when organizing and packing for each show,” he adds. “And most importantly, everyone wants to win, but the real reason you are there is to provide an opportunity to develop a young person as a future leader, possibly in the agriculture industry, by instilling in them the core values of worth ethic, dedication, responsibility and integrity.”

down or bottom-up, if the ring help was good or not. It makes a huge difference! When it comes to the grown-ups, in most families there tends to be one partner who is more prone to getting stressed out than the other partner. Whether it tends to be, for example, a dad that is susceptible to freaking out at fitting time or, for example, a mom that gets a little panicky about changing into show clothes, the script for that drama probably tends to be the same at every show. If the same issues come up over and over again, then perhaps it’s something for the parents to discuss with each other (and later the whole family) during a calm time

when cooler heads prevail and a plan can be made for dealing with whatever stresses them out. Stress is contagious. It affects everyone around the stressed-out person. In fact, researchers say that teenagers are actually more susceptible to stress than adults, especially teenage girls. Adrenaline is the hormone responsible for the “fight or flight” response to stress, but another steroid hormone called cortisol is released in your body when stress is a persistent factor in your life. Cortisol can have a range of damaging effects on a person’s health and it takes a long time to leave the body.

“Once stressed, teenagers require a more lengthy recovery than adults,” according to Inside the Teenage Brain, by Sheryl Feinstein. “Teenage girls are particularly at risk. Progesterone, which is released in larger amounts during puberty, lets cortisol run rampant. Once a teenage girl becomes stressed, it is very difficult to get her physically and mentally under control.” So, what may seem to an adult as overreaction on the part of their teenage daughter may, in fact, be due to her body’s natural response to prolonged stress; the reaction is beyond her control. As a former teenage girl, I can only offer this – patience, understanding and empathy are always good choices when dealing with them. Telling her something to the effect that she’s “being silly to get so upset over something so insignificant” is absolutely not going help! If you can’t say something supportive to her, I suggest you zippy the lippy. Whether it’s at a show or at home, Feinstein offers parents other tips to help teens (boys and girls) deal with stress:

What’s going on in their heads? By the time a kiddo is old enough to show in 4-H, he or she is on the verge of the tween years, about to enter middle school. Both teenagers and tweens share this fact: their brains are under heavy construction. In fact, neuroscientists have recently utilized MRIs and PET scans to study teenage brains. What they learned is not surprising – teenage brains and adults brains do not function the same way or use the same parts of the brain. While adults tend to rely on the part of the brain that emphasizes logic, teenage brains tend to rely on the part of our brain that is ruled by emotion. That explains why a 16-year-old might be supersensitive or misinterpret a “look” that you allegedly gave him. The good news for parents is that parts of the brain increase in efficiency by 100% during adolescence. Also, short-term memory increases by 30%. A process called

Helping Teens Deal With Stress • Encourage physical exercise and sports, which release chemicals that make us feel happy and reduce stress. • Don’t burden your teens with your adult personal problems. • Talk to teens about their worries. • Compliment them. • Use humor. • Don’t overload their schedule. • Be a role model of self control and appropriate coping skills. • Don’t expect perfection. Assure teens with comments like, “Giving it a try is what’s important.” • Encourage relationships outside the family. • Use competition carefully. • Suggest relaxation techniques. • Explain that drugs and alcohol increase stress and decrease healthy coping skills.

- From Inside the Teenage Brain, Sheryl Feinstein

myelination helps fine-tune your teenager’s brain so she can better understand complex ideas and symbolism. According to Feinstein, the teenage years represent an amazing window of opportunity to learn something quickly and with more ease than at any other time of life. But remember, it’s a process. Parents need to have more tolerance for things like disorganization on the part of their middle schooler or poor decision making by a 14-year-old. We have to keep guiding them towards the goal posts of life and not get down on them when they take a little detour now and then. It’s probably a little overwhelming when both your mind and body are construction zones.

About those chores Every child needs chores, and every parent finds themselves having to monitor whether or not the child’s chores get done – and deciding what to do about it if they don’t. The tricky part for our readers is that if a child doesn’t clean his room, he has a dirty room. But if a child who is responsible for the care of an animal shirks his duties, the animal may go hungry or lack for something that it really needs. If they forgot to feed the steers before school, you will have to do it for them. Then what? Martha Hollida Garrett of Benbrook, Texas, has two college-aged daughters who grew up successfully showing Simbrah cattle. While they showed, Martha relied on lists and her daughters’ understanding that their activities required something from the whole family. It wasn’t just about them, in other words. “It’s a major commitment for a family to show – time-wise and financially – so it’s important that your children understand what is involved upfront,” Martha explains. “Our show heifers and their care was their first priority. They could, and did, do a lot of other things, but they both knew their heifers had to be cared for first. It made for some interesting days, and I will say it creates a system of teamwork. We tried to let them figure out who was doing what, and which days, on their own. “I lived by lists,” she says. “Here’s the list of what has to be done. It’s not up for discussion or arguing. Who’s doing what and start doing it. We also tried to talk about


what the week had in store on Sunday or Monday. We would look at all the activities each girl had for the week and see how we needed to plan everything. They were both very active in other organizations and competitions, so planning was important.” Here’s an interesting idea about chore completion from Dr. Michael Hammond in Decisive Parenting: the parents establish logical consequences for every chore of the child’s that the parent ends up doing instead. For example, for every chore your son didn’t do, he owes you either 1) a set amount of money; 2) another chore assignment or 3) you’ll withhold a favor/privilege from him. Hammond also suggests that once chores are assigned to the kids, make a written list not only of their chores but also details of how you expect the job to be done. For example, “This is what I mean by a clean barn. You do x, y and z.” Also, putting the various chores on a schedule may help the child get into a routine.

Let them work it out When you have more than one child showing livestock, inevitably some splitting of the chores will need to be done and, no surprise, they will fight about it. Practically every parenting expert in the world says it is best to let your kids solve their own disagreements. “Your kids are not asking you to walk into a dispute, and using your Solomonlike wisdom, render a just and reasonable solution,” says Hammond. “No, they want

you to hammer to remember that their brother/sister actuthe other kid. ally does have feelings, and it’s not cool to Each kid is bet- hurt them. ting that you If we don’t figure out how to teach them will err on the side of justice and be on his conflict resolution skills, we are doing our or her side.” kids a disservice.

Favorite Blog PoStS from a Month of B.S. • Remember When? Drake and I went on a short road trip the other day. When we were eating, these two biker dudes came in and sat down at the table next to us. I looked over and saw something that sent my mind spinning back in time. Do you remember when everyone used to carry a comb in their pocket? Some were longhandled and some pocket-sized. The long-handled ones were the coolest! It really bugged Drake that I was taking a picture of a biker dude’s rear, until I explained. LOL!! The creepy part was when the guy turned and winked at me (just kiddin’)! • McDonald’s Math I was coming home about 9:30 the other night and was starving, when I saw a McDonald’s coming up. I stopped and ordered 5 items off the “Dollar Menu” (because I’m cheap). The young lady behind the cash register said, “That will be $8.56.” I said, “Miss, I ordered 5 items off the dollar menu... that can’t be right.” So she tries again. This time after ringing things up, she says, “That will be $7.25.” This time, my voice got a little louder and a little more stern, I said, “Miss, you’re not getting it. I ordered 5 items off the dollar menu, it should only be a little over $5.00.” Flustered, she went and got her manager for help, and this time the total came up to $5.35. Shazam! I hope she was just having an off night.

• State Fair Hotel Happening Drake and I were coming back to the Marriott Residence Inn after a long day at the Iowa State Fair, ready to hit the room and relax. As we were walking towards the elevator, the doors opened mysteriously. We both simultaneously said,” That was creepy!” We’d been listening to a rap song in the pickup when we pulled into the hotel parking lot that we both really liked. It has a part in it where the rapper yells out his name, “Rick Ross!” So, after the elevator doors mysteriously opened, I took a run and jumped into the elevator screaming, “Rick Ross!” Little did I know that in the back corner of that elevator, out of sight, was a little old lady. She scared the living crap out of me, and I instinctively jumped away from her. Drake was so tickled he couldn’t even stand up, and was huddled in the corner of the elevator both laughing and as embarrassed as was I. As the elevator started going up, the awkward silence was broken by the little old lady, who said, “not so creepy now, is it boys?” Now that’s funny!

ReseaRch Revises heifeR bReeding weights

John Paterson, Montana State (MSU) University Extension Beef Specialist says a recent MSU study disputes the notion heifers need to reach 65% of their mature body weight by the time they’re bred the first time. The MSU study says 55% is effective. Researchers at the Fort Keogh Livestock and Range Research Laboratory at Miles City conducted the two-year study, which indicates heifers can consume 20% less during the seven months between weaning and breeding. “With the cost of fuel and the cost of production increasing, more and more people are open to more ideas. This is one tool producers can put in their toolbox,” says Richard Waterman, research animal scientist who headed the study. The scientists divided the heifers into two groups and fed them in confinement during the development period between weaning and breeding. One group had free-choice access to feed and the other was limit-fed at 80%. According to Waterman, heifers with unlimited feed grew faster than the calves on reduced rations, but the heifers that ate less used their feed more efficiently. These were crossbred heifers (50% Red Angus; 25% Charolais and 25% Tarentaise).

cattle pRices expected to Remain high

Cattle prices are forecast higher for the remainder of 2011 and through 2012, say analysts in October’s monthly World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE). “Demand remains stronger than expected and the strength is expected to carry into 2012. Hog prices are lowered for the last quarter of 2011 and into 2012 as hog supplies and slaughter are forecast higher. Broiler prices are lowered for 2011 as supplies remain relatively large and demand relatively weak.” WASDE analysts forecast an increase in total red meat production for 2011. Estimates for beef, pork and turkey production are all raised in the latest forecast. “The increase in beef production is largely due to higher expected cow slaughter as drought conditions in much of the Southern Plains and high hay prices will likely keep slaughter high,” WASDE analysts say.

dRought may last until 2020

The Historic Texas drought could last another five years or even until 2020, says John Nielsen-Gammon, Texas State Climatologist and professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas A&M. He says the culprit is the likely establishment of a new La Niña in the central Pacific Ocean. Nielson-Gammon explains last winter’s La Niña is behind the current drought but the new one, which began developing several weeks ago, is likely to extend drought conditions for Texas and much of the Southwest. Incidentally, other meteorolo-

198 November/December 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

gists say last year’s La Nina never left, officially; it weakened and then began re-strengthening. “We know that Texas has experienced droughts that lasted several years,” Nielsen-Gammon says. “Many residents remember the drought of the 1950s, and tree ring records show that drought conditions occasionally last for a decade or even longer. I’m concerned because the same ocean conditions that seem to have contributed to the 1950s drought have been back for several years now and may last another five to 15 years.”

by Dr. Paul Walker, Professor of Animal Science at Illinois State University

n this month’s article I will share with you the results of our latest feedlot trial evaluating high fat (10%-12%) modified wet corn distillers grains with solubles (WDGS). The steers in this study went on feed last fall (2010) and were harvested in June and August (2011). This was an exceptional group of steers from a quality grade perspective as 118 of 120 steers harvested in June, after 161 days on feed, graded Low Choice or higher and 110 of 117 steers harvested in August, after 244 days on feed, graded Low Choice or higher. Anytime 96 percent of the steers sent to harvest grade Low Choice or higher and the average yield grade is 3.01, it is a good day in the world of feeding cattle. This study demonstrates that acceptable quality grades can be achieved when feeding WDGS. All our previous feedlot studies evaluating WDGS used distillers grains that were lower in percent fat (6%-8%). In this study, steers were fed a higher fat (10%-12%) distillers grains. The same treatments were included: a high concentrate control diet containing whole shelled corn (SC) and soybean meal (SBM) with no distillers grains (O), control diet containing 25% WDGS replacing SMB and SC (25),control diet containing 40% WDGS replacing SC and SBM and control diet containing 70% WDGS replacing SBM and SC (70). Table 1 shows the feedlot performance data and Table 2 shows the carcass data. No statistical differences were observed between the treatments regarding average daily gain and feed efficiency as measured by pounds of gain to pounds of dry matter feed intake (G:F). Average daily gain (ADG) ranged between 2.88 lbs. and 2.99 lbs. Feed efficiency was similar between treatments ranging from 0.14 to 0.16. As has been the case in all of our feeding trials, steers fed WDGS consume higher average daily feed intakes (ADFI) than steers fed whole shelled corn diets due to higher moisture contents of the diets containing WDGS. However, as is normally observed, steers consuming WDGS diets at 40% and 70% WDGS have lower daily dry matter intakes (DMI). Even though the higher fat WDGS contains a higher percent crude protein (28.4 vs. 25), a higher percent crude fat (10.4 vs. 6.75) and presumably more energy per unit weight than lower fat WDGS, the cattle feedlot performance of steers fed either WDGS has been similar to controls. Our initial concern was that at higher intake levels (WDGS fed at 70% of diet DM), steers fed higher fat WDGS may not perform as well as steer fed lower fat WDGS when compared to control fed steers because of the higher fat level. In this study the steers fed higher fat WDGS performed similarly to controls regarding ADG and G:F. Steers fed the whole shelled corn diets and the higher fat WDGS also had similar carcass characteristics. No significant differences in any of the carcass parameters evaluated were observed. Yield grades were similar, ranging between 2.8 and 3.1. The average rib fat thickness, regardless of dietary treatment, was around 0.5 inches. There was a non-significant numerical tendency for steers fed 70% WDGS to have lower carcass weights, smaller rib eye areas and lower quality grades than steers fed con-

I

trol, 25% WDGS or 40% WDGS diets. These three observations have been fairly consistent across all our feeding trials whether the WDGS was higher or lower fat WDGS. The take home message from these data is that whether modified wet distillers grains contain higher fat (10%-12%) or lower fat (6%-8%) contents we can successfully feed finishing steers up to 70% of the diet dry matter as WDGS without compromising the outcomes. How much WDGS is fed may depend on the amount of roughage included in the diets. All of our diets have included 15% corn silage or ground grass hay on a dry matter basis. The secret to facilitating the dietary inclusion of WDGS above 50% of the diet dry matter may be maintaining at least 15% roughage on a dry matter basis within the diet.

even Strategies for Investing During Volatile Markets

The markets don’t always behave the way we’d like them to: Geopolitical turmoil, natural disasters, interest rates and world events can have a profound effect on market movements. If market volatility has you concerned about the economy, you are not alone; this is a confusing time for many investors. Some have decided to stay the course, while others are sitting on the sidelines waiting for the market to rebound. However, since no one can predict how the markets will perform, it’s important to develop an investment strategy that can help you stay on the right track to meeting your long-term financial goals. Here are some strategies that you can implement today that may help to manage risk during these uncertain times.

1. Work with a Financial Advisor. There are a lot of do-it-yourself investment resources available to investors today. However, none of those resources can replace the experienced, personal service a Financial Advisor provides. A Financial Advisor can offer an understanding of your complete financial picture, not just your investments. Additionally, in periods of market volatility when you need the most support, a Financial Advisor can provide: • Access to important decision-making research and information; • Periodic review of your investment portfolio, while anticipating your changing needs; and • A market-volatility strategy. 2. Have a plan. Developing a financial plan is one of the best ways to help you meet your long-term goals. Your plan should also include an actionable strategy to address market volatility, and should be developed well in advance of a turbulent market. Having a market-volatility strategy will help you to set realistic goals and appropriately manage your return expectations. 3. Invest regularly. It may not seem intuitive, but investing regularly—even during market downturns—can help to reduce your overall costs. Dollar cost averaging is one of the best ways to invest regularly, since you’re investing a fixed amount on a fixed schedule, regardless of how the markets perform. Investing regularly can also have intrinsic benefits: It encourages discipline and may also ease the anxiety of daily market fluctuations. 4. Diversify. If you’ve ever heard the saying, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket,” then you already have a basic understanding of diversification. Diversifying your portfolio can reduce risk and volatility if the assets have little or no correlation to each other.

200 November/December 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

Investing in mutual funds is one way to achieve portfolio diversification, since mutual funds are typically a diversified investment. There are also several other ways to diversify and potentially reduce portfolio volatility: • Within an asset category, such as purchasing different types of mutual funds; • Among asset categories, such as purchasing stocks and bonds; and • Outside of the United States, since some markets move opposite to the US stock market. 5. Put volatility to work for you. Do you think of the glass as half empty or half full? Your perspective can affect the investment decisions you make during market downturns. Investors who view market volatility negatively can make irrational decisions. A down market can be an opportunity for you to build your portfolio and take advantage of lower unit costs. 6. Stay invested. You are probably anxious during times when the value of your investments has decreased. As a result, you may be tempted to move out of the market, sit on the sidelines and wait for the market to rebound. However, since no one knows how the markets will move, how do you know you’re leaving at the right time? Also, how will you know when it is the right time to get off the sidelines and start investing again? If you have worked with a Financial Advisor, your investment strategy was developed to help you meet your long-term goals. Timing the market could potentially jeopardize your investment strategy—and your future goals. 7. Be patient. There will always be uncertainty in the markets; market volatility is a natural part of the investment cycle. Although it may take some time, markets generally do rebound.* In the meantime, call your Financial Advisor to help you develop an action plan for market volatility and continue to focus on your long-term investment goals rather than short-term market moves.

Fire safety important for hunters and outdoorsmen

Dangerous wildfire conditions are expected through the fall and into the winter, which means a wildfire easily could be ignited by just one spark from an unattended campfire, lit cigarette, muzzle of a gun or even a hot exhaust pipe on a car left running — or parked — on the side of the road, according to the Texas Forest Service. All outdoorsmen should keep fire safety in mind as conditions remain ripe for massive, unwieldy wildfires. If you’re heading outside, keep in mind the following wildfire safety tips: • Obey outdoor burning bans. Don’t build a fire during dry or windy conditions. • Drive only on designated trails. Don’t park or idle vehicles in dry grass, which can be ignited by contact with a hot muffler. • When shooting close to the ground, be sure there is no dry grass or tinder in front of your muzzle. Though rare, it’s not impossible for a shot to ignite nearby tinder. • Use caution with cigarettes and matches. • Use spark arresters on all power equipment.

Feed Tag LabeLs

By Sharla Ishmael

the rest of the story

Getting your money’s worth out of purchased feed requires more than just comparing protein levels on the tag.

It’s one thing to read the tag on a bag of feed; it’s another thing to understand what the tag says – and more importantly – what it doesn’t say. With so much damage done by the 2011 drought and no end in sight, producers need to get the most bang for every buck spent on feed. For example, let’s compare two different brands of breeder cubes. Both feed tags list 20% crude protein in the guaranteed analysis at the top of the tag. One has a higher price. Which is the better buy for fall-calving cows? Or growing replacement heifers? While quality of protein may not be as vital in a beef operation as other species, wouldn’t you prefer to know something about quality and digestibility of the protein you’re feeding? “Crude protein is something to look at; however, the quality of protein available to animals varies greatly,” explains Joe Fuller, a 17-year veteran of the feed industry and field sales leader for Land O’Lakes Purina Feed. “Feed tags can be misleading. The label states a minimum standard, but manu-

facturers can use different ingredients to cheapen the formulation. “A cube tagged 20% protein could actually have higher protein levels (if input costs were such that it was cheaper for the manufacturer to formulate a higher percent crude protein), or you could have a product that only has digestible protein of 12% to 14%,” Fuller says. “Labels give you a good framework, but they don’t tell the whole story.”

Guaranteed on a tag While a feed tag may not tell you everything you need to know, it’s definitely worth your time to take a minute and look it over. Some of the information on the label is mandated by state regulations and national standards. Depending on which state you live in, certain ingredients must be guaranteed on the label (which nutrients are required to be listed varies by state). For example, most feed tags will have a “Guaranteed Analysis” section at the top of

202 November/December 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

the label outlining maximums and minimums of crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, calcium, phosphorous, salt, etc. State agencies have the authority to conduct spot checks on finished products to ensure what’s in a bag lives up to its label. As an example, in Texas it’s the Office of the Texas State Chemist. Also required is a lot or batch number on the label. If you have any problems with feed such as funny smells, wrong ingredients, etc., you can contact the manufacturer who should be able to identity when and where the feed was made. If there were to be any recalls, you would also use that batch number to determine if your feed was in the recall.


Ingredients:

Not necessarily individual

What doesn’t the Guaranteed Analysis tell you? It doesn’t give you any information about dry matter, energy content or quality of ingredients. For example, as the use of byproducts has evolved, understanding what the percent crude fiber number on a feed tag signifies is more complicated than it used to be. Consider comments by Dr. Ron Gill on RanchTV.org, a Texas AgriLife Extension website: “It’s somewhat confusing now because of wheat mids and soybean hulls that have a fiber content that is not just indigestible fiber. Once we look at fiber content on a feed, we also have to refer to the ingredients to get a better understanding of what that’s going to mean from an energy standpoint. Back before we used to use a lot of these byproduct feeds – and corn was the main source of energy – the fiber content was a really good indicator of overall energy value of that feed. “Prior to the use of mids and soybean hulls, feeds that had 8% to 10% crude fiber (CF) were considered high-quality energy cubes, and those with 15% to 20% CF were considered fairly poor sources of energy. With the inclusion of these high digestible fiber feedstuffs, such as mids and hulls, the energy value is going to be higher than what the fiber level might indicate based on past rules of thumb. “Other co-products that can be used when manufacturing feed, such as dried distillers grains (DDGs), also add additional energy due to the higher fat content of these products,” Gill adds.

The next section on a feed label is generally a list of ingredients, but again, that can be confusing. Feed companies can choose whether to list individual ingredients (corn, alfalfa, etc.) or collective categories of ingredients (plant protein products, roughage products, etc.). Manufacturers can use collective terms like “grain products”, because they are constantly changing formulations based on the dynamic prices of feedstuffs. Otherwise, they would have to issue a different label each time they changed the formula. Companies also use this type of phrasing to protect proprietary formulas. So, what does something like “plant protein products” really mean? It could be anything from algae meal to soy protein concentrate to yeast to cottonseed meal and a long list of other appropriate products. “Roughage products” could mean anything from beet pulp to rice hulls to barley mill byproduct to peanut hulls, as just a few examples. So, you can see how different two bags of feed with similar labels could possibly be with endless combinations of ingredients in the mix. However, even if you can determine the individual ingredients used in a ration, there can still be a wide variety in the quality of those ingredients. Fuller explains, “For example, Land O’ Lakes Purina takes samples of every load (of raw ingredients) that comes in. We test samples of every ingredient every day. You may have 100,000 samples of soybean meal that average 44% protein, but within the samples you can see a variation of 36% protein to 50% protein. “So, our formulation changes based on both the quality and the protein content of the ingredients coming into the feed plant.

As ingredients come in, we alter the formula slightly to meet the tag specifications,” Fuller adds. “It comes down to whether or not you can trust the company and its research behind the products. Ultimately, it comes down to the performance of the product.” Minerals are another area where it can pay a producer to look for the devil in the details. As an illustration, take two bags of feed where Feed A has 7500 ppm zinc oxide and Feed B has 2500 ppm zinc sulfate. Just looking at the tag you would think Feed A has more zinc for your animals. “The bioavailability of the sulfate product is higher than the oxide product, but the tag doesn’t tell you any of that,” Fuller says. “Even if the tag lists both forms, oxide and sulfate, you don’t know whether the cheaper oxide was used or not. Feed tags just don’t tell you the whole story. They are a tool, but that’s all.”

Seriously,

Read the directions

Not reading the label can get you into trouble. For one thing, there are warnings about feeds that should not be fed to certain classes of livestock – they can be fatal, particularly with horses. And if a feed is medicated, some Beef Quality Assurance guidelines call for producers to keep records of that for up to three years. Or, you might consider that not reading the directions for use could cost you money. Here’s how. A feed tag will give you feeding directions – in general how much to feed and how often. It is possible that a feed with a higher price per bag will actually cost you less money if you can feed less of it or feed it less often because it’s made with higher quality ingredients. The funny thing is, in researching this topic, several nutritionists mentioned the fact that men don’t like to read instructions. Perhaps your wife might be so kind as to take a look at the feed tag for you – most women (at least if they are like me) have spent a lifetime deciphering labels on the food we eat depending on whatever diet we’re on at the time. However, any “smart” comments about her diet may mean that you’ll be opening your own gates and reading your own labels for a long time….

mbryo Transfer and In Vitro Fertilization: A Comparison

Many breeders have elite females from which they can market valuable genetics and offspring. With the use of advanced reproductive technologies, more offspring can be propagated to help multiply the success of breeding and marketing programs. While many breeders are familiar with embryo transfer (ET), an increasing number of breeders are implementing in vitro fertilization (IVF) into their reproductive programs. Embryo Transfer: Conventional (in vivo) ET involves specific hormonal treatment (with follicle-stimulating hormone) of donor cows and heifers to cause multiple follicles to ovulate. The donors are bred using artificial insemination (AI) following super ovulation after estrus (standing heat). Approximately seven days after insemination, embryos are non-surgically collected or “flushed” from the donor’s uterus and either transferred fresh into synchronous recipients, who will serve as surrogate mothers, or frozen to be implanted at a later date. Embryo transfer is one option that can increase a cow’s reproductive efficiency, allowing her to have numerous calves per year. While the average cow produces six to seven calves in her lifetime, ET can increase her reproductive efficiency to numerous calves per year – allowing breeders to multiply the success of their superior pedigrees. Embryo transfer is a very accessible technology. By creating more offspring that are valuable to a herd, breeders can advance their marketing opportunities, improve the reproductive performance and enhance the rate of genetic gain. In vitro fertilization: An IVF collection, called an aspiration or ovum pick up (OPU), is the process of harvesting unfertilized oocytes (unfertile eggs) directly from the ovaries of a donor cow or heifer. Recovered oocytes are fertilized one day after aspiration and transferred seven days after fertilization. During this eight-day time period, they are cultured and grown in an incubator with controlled media, temperature and environment to mirror the cow’s uterus. They are then transferred into recipient cows seven days after the recipient’s standing heat or estrus, which is similar to the transfer process for embryos produced by embryo transfer. Breeders who choose to use IVF technology have the opportunity to obtain more offspring from valuable females in their herd, similar to the benefit of embryo transfer. However, many breeders do not realize the additional benefits when using IVF. IVF is a technology that allows breeders to collect offspring from open cows, pregnant cows, virgin heifers, as well as problematic females that have had difficulty in conventional breeding attempts. It is also possible to retrieve oocytes (unfertilized eggs) from donors shortly after a death event to produce one final genetic collection. The applications of this technology allow breeders who would like to get a jump on the next generation to do so without altering other vital aspects of their breeding program. Historically, breeders were forced to decide whether to risk future productivity of young donors by flushing them as virgin heifers or just postponing embryo production until after their first calf. By using IVF technology to create pregnancies from a donor gestating her natural calf, breeders

204 November/December 2011 • theshowcircuit.com

can keep the superior female an annual production cycle and allows breeders to generate offspring from elite heifers, allowing them to calve and remain on schedule with the rest of the herd. When compared to embryo transfer, IVF may further maximize the potential of an elite female in a shorter time period, as the interval between IVF aspirations is shorter than the interval between traditional embryo transfer sessions. It is possible to obtain IVF cycles every week or every other week, whereas most embryo transfer programs will collect donors every 60 days. While conventional embryo transfer generally requires the use of two to three units of semen per donor, IVF can be used to maximize the value of rare, sexed, or expensive semen. One unit of semen can be applied to oocytes from up to eight different donors, or semen from several different bulls may be used to fertilize a group of oocytes collected from an elite female. There is a perception in the industry that IVF is a more costly option. However, it actually becomes more cost effective than traditional embryo transfer on donors that produce limited numbers of embryos. This fact – coupled with the opportunity to increase the number of calves, the sex ratio of the calves and the ability to increase the opportunities for collection – makes IVF a leading choice for the progressive producer looking to increase the number of offspring that create the most value in their program. What’s the best option for me? Embryo transfer is likely the best choice for prolific embryo-producing donors that can meet the owner’s embryo production needs. In this scenario, embryo cost is economical and in vivo embryos hold a slight pregnancy rate advantage for both fresh and frozen embryos when compared to IVF. However, in many instances, IVF provides more value. It is more cost-effective to use IVF on low-embryo production donors or females you would like to keep in the production cycle. Additionally, IVF can reduce donor boarding costs and semen costs by utilizing a single straw of semen to fertilize multiple embryos, with the opportunity to use more than one sire on a single donor aspiration. IVF is also a more economical choice if sexed semen is strongly desired from bulls that do not have sexed semen available. Even if the cost of the procedure is higher, if the donor produces more embryos, then the cost per embryo is lower. Conclusion Depending on the specific needs of a breeder’s program, various approaches can be taken. It is important for producers to understand how each and every reproductive technology can be used to benefit your operation. While IVF may not be the answer for every donor program, many have realized it is a tool that offers unique opportunities to extend elite genetics provided by both proven donors and rare or expensive sires. To effectively and economically integrate IVF technology into a breeding program, breeders are encouraged to carefully review their goals, understand the opportunities and limitations of both options and work with the experienced, professional teams to determine the best advanced reproductive technology programs to meet their goals.

THE ENTIRE BREEDING PROGRAM!

GCC GRIZZLY

He sells along with his semen inventory! Also selling other Guyer sires in-part or in-full along with large banks of frozen semen!

It’s Not the End ... It’s the Beginning. We’re not getting out of this business we love. Not at all. Rather, we’re changing our focus from production to promotion and marketing of these same cattle. Increased demands of family plus time and travel in our other show cattle-related businesses have necessitated this change of course. Cows like these deserve more attention than our current schedule allows so we’re selling them all in order to allow others to maximize their potential. We’re turning them loose but we’re looking forward to working with their new owners and marketing their progeny through The Chosen Few and our other, proven channels. Select From Our Absolute Best On January 7th!
