Hoo Doo Lizzy 2069

For the past 10 years we have been putting together some of the best smoky cattle we could find (before smoke was even hot), and we’re ready to do some bragging. HOO DOO Lizzy 2069 is one of the most powerful purebred Charolais cows i have ever seen. She is the only purebred Charolais female that Kris Black has gotten off the Hoo Doo Ranch. Lizzy is a unique individual. She has so much body, volume, bone, and power, not only will you not see another purebred Charolais like this, you just will not see many cows like Lizzy, period. To go along with all her power is a nice big hip, cool long-extended front end, and a neat smooth pattern. And she is sound!

Championship Performance is made easier with MoorMan’s® ShowTec®

from: Eric Walker, Prairie Grove, AR I’ve been asked numerous times

“What makes a champion?” My response is very simple! . . . . . . . . It takes

five things! 1. Quality animal to start with 2. Hard work at the barn working hair and focused on the small things 3. A little bit of luck 4. A good showman (hard work at the barn)

2016 NAILE - Grand Champion Maine Tainer Heifer

5. A good nutritional program and for us that starts with ADM products. When choosing a feed company you need to understand that it is the center of your entire project! Without proper nutrition, your calf will not reach its genetic potential! Every bag of MoorMan’s® ShowTec® we open is consistent and for us that is key!!! Always fresh and a perfectly balanced feed! Sure, you can probably buy feed cheaper, but do you want a champion or a deal? For us we want to feed champions so we choose MoorMan’s ShowTec!

Cole Wilcox

BEDFORD, INDIANA | AGE: 18 Species and breeds of livestock you show: I show cattle and swine. I show yorks, durocs, and crossbreds. On the cattle side I show angus heifers and crossbred steers Siblings names/ages: Kate Wilcox What is your favorite show and why? My favorite show is NWSS because there’s just something about the atmosphere there. With the mountains in the view and the yards down below makes it a second to none view All-time favorite show animal and why? My favorite show animal would have to be “gunner”, the duroc barrow that I won the Indiana State Fair with. Gunner was not your typical show pig, he has a personality like none other. Favorite show memory: My favorite show memory is winning the Indiana state Fair market steer show Least favorite show-day task: My least favorite show day task is breaking down the calves after the show Favorite TV Show: Hawaii 5-O Favorite book/ author: Hunger Games Favorite activities outside of the show ring: Snowboarding, and hanging out with friends What do you want to do for a career? Next year I am going to Lake Land and competing on the livestock judging team, I would then like to go to Purdue University to major in animal science and become a large animal veterinarian

Favorite food: Pizza Would you rather watch a scary or a funny movie? Definitely a funny movie What is your pet peeve? When people chew with their mouth open Would you rather encounter snakes or mice? Mice, I have a huge phobia for snakes Who is someone you want to thank for helping you succeed in the show ring? I can’t just think of one person because everyone works as a team. First and foremost on the cattle side of things I would like to thank my Mom and dad, everyone knows this is a very expensive hobby and without them supporting me none of this would be possible. My grandma and grandpa for taking care of everything on the farm while we are gone at shows, and my sister for always helping out when we need it. Then on the hog side of things I can’t thank Travis Platt and the Platt family enough for everything they’ve done for me and taught me. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today in the showpig ring if it wasn’t for them. I’ve been very grateful in the showring in my years of showing and I can’t thank these people enough because without them, none of them would be possible.


Species and breeds of livestock you show: Angus, Charolais, Chianina, Hereford, Maine-Anjou, Mainetainer, Simmental and Crossbred heifers and steers Siblings names/ages: Klayton, 11; two half-sisters Kiera, 7 and Kinsley, 4 What is your favorite show and why? The National Western Stock Show is my favorite. I love the yards and the hill. I’ve met new people every year and have great memories. And I also love the food.

Kassidy Bremer

REDFIELD, IOWA | AGE: 16

All-time favorite show animal and why? My crossbred steer, Lucky, from last year. When he was little he would always act scared and run away. He only trusted four people in his lifetime and that’s how I grew a strong relationship with him. He didn’t like very many people and the day before the show at the National Western even I couldn’t work with him. On show day it took lots of patience and I talked calmly to him the whole time. I’ll never forget Lucky because he taught me a lot and changed my life forever. Favorite show memory: The moment my steer was selected as Reserve Grand Champion at the American Royal in Kansas City in 2016. Least favorite show-day task: Scratching my calf to make it stand still for dad to clip it. Favorite TV Show: Chicago Fire Favorite book/author: The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks Favorite activities outside of the show ring: Basketball, track, singing, photography and working in the cattle or pig barn with Olivia. What do you want to do for a career? I’d like to be a vet tech. Favorite food: Steak Would you rather watch a scary or funny movie? Funny Would you rather encounter snakes or mice? Snakes Who is someone you want to thank for helping you succeed in the show ring? My dad. He has taught me everything about taking care of my show cattle, showing and fitting. I can’t thank him enough for all the hours he puts into my cattle when I can’t be in the barn.

AJCA

Meet Your 2017 AJCA Youth Leaders The Arkansas Jr. Cattlemen’s Association is led by a group of dynamic youth. The board of directors consists of four officers and nine area representatives that are the same areas as the Arkansas Cattlemen’s Association. These thirteen individuals are some of the best and brightest up and coming livestock leaders in the region. We are both pleased and proud to have them building and directing our Association. Zachary Andrews, seventeen years old from Camden, is serving this year as the AJCA President. AJCA allows Zachary opportunities to meet new people and network with other people who share his passion for livestock and Hereford cattle. President Andrews has set a goal this year to increase participation in AJCA’s Super Saturday public speaking photography contests. Zachary also wants to get to know more AJCA members.

“Grayma” paints 90% of the toys at The Happy Toy Maker.

By Lindsay Allen

They say if you can’t find it at Wal-Mart, then you don’t need it, but that isn’t always true. Entrepreneurs Jerry Sims and Sarah Wray saw a need for great agriculturally related products and created their own companies, respectfully to fill the void. While their products aren’t on the shelves of a supercenter store, they can be found at many ranchers and showmen’s homes, as they uniquely reflect the industry we all represent and love. The toys and products they sell have been carefully created and designed with the agricultural industry in mind and give youth the opportunity to play with toys or have merchandise that reflect their livelihoods and the livelihoods of their families. Happy Toy Maker Located in Happy, Texas, Jerry Sims proudly farms irrigated silage and dry land wheat. In addition, he has served as a volunteer fireman for the town for 35 years, and as the chief the last 18 years. While that may sound like a full-time schedule, he has also found time in the last 10 years to daily build toys and sell them. Jerry de-

signs and builds western toys that are far more durable than other toys a child can receive these days and are all custom built, hand-made and designed out of steel. “About 18 years ago, when my boys were toddlers, they asked for a doctoring chute, the only problem was that I couldn’t find any toy chutes to purchase for them. So, I built them one for Christmas I realized after I gave it to them that a chute wouldn’t do too much good without the snake and tub and load out chute to go with it. So, every year for birthdays and Christmas gifts, I just kept building more and more toys to add to their collection,” Jerry recalled, “When they got too big to play with them, the neighbors started asking for items. In 2006, I started selling to the public and that year we

Last year, The Happy Toymaker had the opportunity to bring a smile on more than just Christmas day and birthdays as Jerry hosted a young boy through the Kids Wish Network, at his place. The terminally ill boy from Washington had a wish to visit Happy, Texas, and play with the toys for a day. Jerry and his family were happy to accommodate and welcome their new friend on to the place. They also had him star in some of their promotional videos on Facebook, showing how the equipment worked. “It was an honor to get to spend time with him and add to his Happy Toymaker collection. We showed him around the shop, and set up special events for him at the firehouse and the Ranch Rodeo Finals in Amarillo,” Jerry said.

Jerry said he has enjoyed building all The Stock Show Toy Co. these toys and designing them to work “If you are interested in horses, the together and fit. amount of toys and accessories related to “We need to keep these kids interested this industry are unlimited.

with mom and dad. The only problem was, most of the toy cows I could find looked like a mix between a cow and a buffalo, while that provided some good laughs for us on the toy aisle, I was never satisfied when shopping,” she recalled. The Stock Show Toy Co. sells toy show steers, stock show books for kids, adult coloring books and stock show charms, which fit Pandora bracelets. The hardest part of managing her company, Sarah said, is finding the patience and self-control to do so. “I really like to dream, but one of the best lessons I learned in my first business (Farmon.com) was to learn how to play a long-term game. Sometimes you have to allow a business or a product to develop. I find that you need to be patient enough to let your business develop, but smart enough to let your customer tell you what they want and to know when to listen,” she advised. To help with this, she enlists the help of her own three kids. “I can’t say enough about testing your idea before you go too far down the rabbit hole. I come up with all the concepts for the designs and then work with very talented people to make them come to life. My kids are a huge inspiration for me when it comes to product design. All three of them have shown since they were three-years-old, so if they love the products, I know other kids will also, plus they don’t hold back, they are the best product testers-if they don’t like it, they tell me!” she chuckled. Sarah realized early on in her career she wasn’t a fan of driving in the big cit-

ies and has opted to market her company 100 percent online, which allows her to keep the lifestyle that she loves, which includes lots of quality time at the farm with her family and cattle. “I enjoy finding my inner kid and creating new products. The most rewarding part of starting this company has been the pictures that have come in of our toy steers inside a homemade show barn, or even an Elf on the Shelf giving one of our books as a gift. Knowing my customers are enjoying their products is the reason why I keep selling and designing,” she said. In the spirit of keeping herself off the travel circuit and the products strictly online, Sarah relies heavily on Facebook, in addition to her website.

PROFESSOR TO PRODUCER

VFD AND THE SMALL PRODUCER

T

he Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) may be a good policy for the beef cattle industry, and a workable tool for the larger and even medium-scale producer, but could be an unfair animal welfare issue for the small-scale producer, and may put the smaller producer at a competitive disadvantage. As always is the case, the devil is in the details. The problem is not with the VFD policy itself.

The problem is how some of the feed manufacturers are choosing to implement the policies. It is my opinion that little thought has been given regarding how the VFD affects the small producer. Case in point: a small producer with 12 cows (four that calve each fall and eight that calve each spring) decides to wean his four fall calves. In the past, this producer would wean the four calves and start them March 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

By Dr. Paul Walker, Professor Emeritus DI Walker Consulting

on feed (probably a continuation of the creep-feeding regimen) utilizing a starter concentrate or a complete feed containing an antibiotic for 14 to 28 days. In the past, this feeding strategy included an antibiotic at a therapeutic level to treat/prevent respiratory disease. There were numerous products of this type on the market and they were used satisfactorily to keep calves healthy during stressful events such as weaning. One such product (for example) recommended feeding 10 pounds of product per day per calf to supply 350mg of Chlortetracycline and 350mg of Sulfamethazine for 14 to 28 days. Today, if a producer (any/all producers) wants to utilize this or another similar product, the producer first consults with his/her veterinarian who must write a VFD. The producer then takes the VFD form to the local feed dealer, who can then sell the feed product containing antibiotic to the producer. That process all seems easy, feasible and doable, right? Here is the catch. For the larger-scale producer who requires 2,000 lbs. or more of the feed product there is no problem – as long as the producer gives the feed dealer sufficient time to order the feed, usually between 4 days to one week lead time. Most (maybe all) local feed dealers are not going to be able to floor stock feeds containing antibiotics. As of the date of this article, feed manufacturers are not allowing feed dealers to floor stock feeds containing antibiotics. The feed manufacturers are requiring the feed dealers to place minimum orders of one or two tons of the medicated feed. This is not a problem for large- scale producers, but for the small producer in the example scenario who has four weaned calves to treat that require 10 pounds of medicated feed per day per calf – the producer only needs 560 pounds of medicated feed (11 bags) if the feed is fed for 14 days or 1,120 pounds of medicated feed (22 bags) if the feed is fed for 28 days. The feed dealer cannot obtain that small of an order from the feed manufacturer and the VFD will not allow the producer to order more medicated feed than required per VFD Form. Today under the VFD, the small producer has an animal welfare problem. The best methodology is to

188 March 2017 • theshowcircuit.com

prevent respiratory disease through proper vaccination and to prevent/treat respiratory disease with oral medicated feed. However, small producers may have no option but to vaccinate and treat with antibiotic injections. The least stress for calves is to treat/prevent respiratory disease orally with medicated feed for a short period of time. Waiting for calves to get sick then handling calves through a chute to inject antibiotics is stressful to calves and is an animal welfare issue. There is a practical solution. Feed manufacturers should allow feed dealers to floor stock medicated feeds that smaller producers can purchase in smaller amounts with a proper VFD Form. The NCBA, state beef associations, Farm Bureau organizations and perhaps national breed associations should lobby feed manufacturers to work with local feed dealers to resolve this issue so small-scale beef producers can have access to medicated feed when a veterinarian/producer consultation warrants the need. Regarding a completely different topic, but worthy of noting; several ethanol plants have been experiencing dryer problems this year (a situation that occurs periodically over the years). Consequently, these plants have large volumes of wet distiller’s grains (70% moisture) to move ASAP. Often these “fire sales” result in distillers grains being offered at very attractive (low) prices but the caveat is that the distiller’s grains must be hauled away immediately. Some of the feedlots I work with have been able to purchase these distiller’s grains ranging in moisture content from 60% DM to 30% DM for $20 to $30: ton. To store the volume of distiller’s grains these feedlots must accept, they have been placing the distiller’s grains into silage bags. When I was at ISU we conducted several research studies storing distiller’s grains into plastic bags. This storing procedure works well and preserves the distiller’s almost indefinitely. Therefore, keep in contact with the ethanol plants near you and be prepared for a “fire sale.” Once this situation occurs, your biggest problem will be finding enough trucks to haul the distiller’s grains in a timely fashion that meets the needs of the ethanol plant.

Monopoly and clones enjoyed their most successful year ever in 2016/2017 show season. There were more Monopoly sired state fair market champions than all other sires combined. The highest selling prospect steers of the fall sale season were Monopoly/clone sired steers raised by Justin Lain, Luke Doris, and Dean Staley commanding $66,000, $61,500 & $51,000 respectively. Simply put, Monopoly continues to be the most consistent and dependable option at breeding for high sellers and show champions! Monopoly 7 has been described by many of the top breeders in the country as their favorite Monopoly clone to view in person ever. Order for shipment today for spring breeding.

One In The Chamber & Loaded For Bear are the best sons of Tracy Goretska’s legendary 805 donor. One In The Chamber delivers extra foot size and power on flatter made females. Kerry Danker of Avoca, Iowa had four One In The Chamber calves born in 2016 with all making the sale pen and the top two selling for $27,000 and $25,500 the following September. Talk about return on investment. Loaded For Bear is a slightly shorter legged version of his brother that also has explosive muscle pattern and elite structural soundness. We look for these two powerful full brothers to continue to gain widespread popularity in 2017.

We have been searching for a new Maine-Anjou herd sire for several years. When I spotted BOE Epic in the yards in Denver I knew he was the one! He is basically a total outcross to our cow herd as well as an outcross to most of the popular pedigrees in the Maine breed today. However, his phenotype is what separates him from the rest of the field. Incredible structure, bold center rib, massive hipped, and an awesome look. He's not all fluff and stuff, in Denver at 10 months of age, scanned a 17.8 in REA and weighed 1,221 lbs. You don't find a 75% Maine-Anjou sire like this everyday! He was the top selling bull in the Denver Maine Bull Sale and he was a steal in our mind. We have had an overwhelming number of cattlemen placing semen orders. The semen cost is $100 per unit with a 10 unit minimum and we will fill semen orders on a first come, first serve basis.
