WWW.TRANSOVA.COM MULTIPLY SUCCESS ®


GluCoat is the next level or generation to a fat source or supplement. You will never use a fat product again! • It’s a sugar product, not a fat product such as vegetable oil. Sugar speeds up the rumen for better feed intake. • It contains Cell-rate with millions of dollars worth of nucleotides and nucleic acids studies behind it. • Also contains a refined flavoured fish oil which is great for skin and hair at the same time provides a great source of the Omega Fatty Acids for joint health. • B Vitamins (B12, B6, Riboflavin, Niacin) which has been known to increase appetite. • Molasses base so cattle, sheep, and goats love it. They will feel better, act better, and their eating habits will change. GluCoat will keep you ready for the ring!

Extreme Natural Stride is the most comprehensive formula for join support on the market today! In the show ring, soundness is a Necessity and with the advancements in genetics and performance, we have stressed the structure of show livestock to the limits. Whether it’s swelling, join pain, flexibility, wear and tear, or other basic movement issues, Extreme Natural Stride is your simple solution. Renowned as a natural lubricant, Cetyl Myristoleate is an essential component in Extreme Natural Stride and along with 9 other key ingredients Extreme is an all in one multi-ingredient product that attacks a joint from all directions. You are guaranteed the most bang for your buck!

Don’t use something that only gives you a one shot deal at one show. Use Hide And Hair. It gives you a much larger window of hair growth to broaden your options on shows you might go. Hide And Hair is the ONLY choice in hair growth products if you are serious about showing. It’s time to be thinking about getting ready for summer shows. Use for 90 to 120 days and for optimal results start feeding 120 days out. Don’t get left behind, use what the champions are using!!

PROFESSOR to PRODUCER

Low Cost Diets for Beef Cows As I have balanced diets for cow-calf producers this winter, I have been reminded just how inexpensively we can feed cows. Producers who grow or have access to a variety of forages have the ability to create balanced diets without the need to purchase expensive supplements or premixes. As one young purebred producer put it after I balanced several diets for his operation, “We can set aside 10 acres to grow alfalfa to supplement corn silage or grass hay and save a ton of money not buying commercial supplements or we can plant that 10 acres into corn and break even (money wise).” It is kind of a no-brainer, is it not? For producers who are limited to one forage type, the use of co-products (soy hulls, corn gluten, and corn distiller’s grains) really helps keep feed costs down. Over the last few years, I have really become a believer in growing cereal rye to produce ryelage. Growing cereal rye on acres planned for soybean production is another “no-brainer” that allows producers to grow a high protein forage without taking acres out of a corn – soybean rotation. An interesting point about cereal rye is that it can be

used to produce a high-protein forage or it can be used to produce a lower-quality, high-tonnage forage. It all depends on harvesting maturity. Ryelage has a very narrow window in the spring regarding timing of harvest to produce a high-protein forage. Rye should be harvested prior to or in a very early dough stage of grain maturity in order to have a high crude protein/high digestibility content (18% to 20% crude protein). Harvesting past the early dough stage can be a good forage to feed if volume of feedstuff is the goal, but then ryelage becomes a forage that needs supplementation as opposed to being the supplementing forage. The problem with using forages to create diets balanced for protein, energy, calcium and phosphorous is that they must be ground and blended in a mixer – usually a vertical grinder/mixer. This piece of equipment is expensive and maybe limited to use by larger operations. An alternative is for 2 or 3 producers to purchase and share a vertical grinder mixer. Another alternative is to pre-grind forages in a tub-grinder and then blend the forages with a front-end loader prior to feeding – a method of high labor and low accuracy of uniform mixing. Another problem when utilizing all forage diets blended in a vertical grinder/mixer is the uniformity of incorporating premixes when the feeding directions call for feeding 3-4oz.: cow: day. Premixes should always be added at no less than 2% of the forage mixture to ensure uniform mixing. Premix supplements should be added to a carrier (SH, DDGS, ground SC) prior to blending with forages in the grinder/mixer. As an example, feeding 30 cows, 40 lbs. of blended forage and 4 oz. of a premix per cow calls for 1200 lbs. of forage and 24 lbs. of a carrier that includes 7.5 lbs. of premix. Adding just the 7.5 lbs. of premix without a carrier most likely will result in un-uniform incorporation of the premix. The following diets represent forage mixes that satisfy crude protein, energy, calcium and phosphorous requirements. I always recommend producers provide a freechoice granular mineral mixture that contains a 1:1 Ca: P ratio, added Mg, K and Se, regardless of the diet formation. The diets shown utilize corn silage (CS), high moisture alfalfa baleage (AB), first cutting grass hay (FGH), second cutting grass hay (SGH), modified wet distillers grains (DGS) soy hulls (SH) and whole shelled corn (WSC).

Diet 3: -Contains 37% AB, 20% CS, 43 FGH on a DM basis, corresponds to 35.5% AB, 36% ca and 28.5% FGH on a DM basis. -Provides 12.7% CO, 0.71% Ca, 0.25% P, Ca: P = 2.8:1 -Contains 41.7% DM, feed at 3-4% of body wt. for lactating cows and heifers.

Diet 4: -Contains 70% FGH, 30% AB on a DM basis, corresponds to 61.7% FSH, 38.3% AB on an as fed basis. -Provides 12.5% CP, 0.86% Ca, 0.27% P, Ca: P = 3.2: 1 -Contains 76.5% DM, feed at 2-2 ½ % of body wt. for lactating cows and heifers.

everything except extra energy. I recommend supplementing with SH at the rate of 5-6 lbs.: cow: d or 10-12 lbs. heifer: day - This year, if SH are not within affordable trucking distance (within 60 miles) I recommend feeding WSC, as it is the next most inexpensive energy source and supplement WSC at the same rate as SH. -Adding another energy source such as DGS can be utilized but CP will be over fed. Higher CP levels are okay for lactating cows and open heifers but may not be okay for bred cows. Modified wet DGS or DDGS can be supplemented to bred cows but the CP level will increase and approach 18% to 20% of the diet DM, and too high a CP percent may increase birth wt. -If replacing SH or WSC with DGS increase the DGS 2 X to account for the higher moisture content; when supplementing with DDGS, add the same amount as SH or WSC. These diets are balanced according to analyzed nutrient values for these forages. When balancing diets using home grown forages, laboratory analyses should always be conducted as NRC book values may not be reflective of the actual forage values.

By Lindsay L. Allen

Every farm/ranch owner likes to put their best face forward when it comes to first impressions of their place. A Texas business specializing in custom iron work and gate design has turned that into an art form. By Lindsay L. Allen

Tree Gate: “I couldn’t figure out how to do the tree and one day I woke up and started sketching it out and realized how to make it happen,” Jeffery explains. “The work behind creating it makes it special. I’m a symmetrical thinker, but a tree is very asymmetrical.”

oming and going looks a whole lot better when you pass through a custom-built gate--especially when it’s made by Aberdeen Custom Gate and Iron. Owner Jeffery Presbaugh has turned his artistic bent into a business that designs, builds, auto-

mates and installs custom gates and other iron works in the North Texas area and beyond. It hasn’t always been about gates though, his first stab at combining business with art was in saddle making. “I March 2018 • theshowcircuit.com

“I do some projects outside of custom gates, like company signs and railings, but if it’s not going to be ‘neat’ enough to make someone ask who did the iron work, then I pass and focus on our gates,” Jeffery explains. used to rodeo and constantly found myself stopping in every saddle shop there was in Montana and Wyoming for a chance to visit with anyone who would talk to me about the trade and teach me,” Jeffery says, as he remembers the early days of teaching himself how to braid and tool leather. Designing custom gates began after Jeffery’s next business, fence building, presented an opportunity. He built two gates and from there the rest was history as they say. “I realized building gates was more satisfying than building fences,” Jeffery recalls, “I grew up painting and drawing because my grandmother always made sure we had pencils, paints, glue and many other art supplies. I give her the credit for teaching me the basics and encouraging me. “Gates provide peace of mind and reflect personal style. Our clients are trusting us with their security and their property’s first impression, which is very personal and emotional. I don’t take that lightly,” he adds.

Aberdeen Gate and Iron Work is not only of the company, which is extending their creative, but you can guarantee things following. will work today and forever.” “I do some projects outside of custom When Melinda Branchini came to Jeffery gates, like company signs and railings, for her gate, she explained she liked sim- but if it’s not going to be ‘neat’ enough to ple and elegant. “He heard me.

“It’s a wonderful thing to own your own business, but there was a time when I did everything from sweep the floor, handle sales and purchasing orders, play office manager and then of course the manufacturing side. What I found is that all that excess depleted my creativity. So, When you talk to Aberdeen’s clients, you I’m glad to have help and be able to focus find out Jeffery and his team are viewed on what I love doing and that is creating as more than just contractors – more like custom gates,” Jeffery says. friends and partners.

Additionally, instead of hand drawing his designs, he now uses AutoCAD. “I’m constantly striving to learn new things. I began taking classes at the junior college almost 10 years ago, and learned more about the CAD drawing process, and that has been a great tool to help customers visualize the gates and for me to clarify what is in my head regarding their gate or iron work,” he notes. AutoCAD scales everything to true size and allows Jeffery to take a picture of the driveway and add the gate drawing to it. Then, he and the client can tweak it from there.


“Everyone asks how long it takes to build a gate, and I don’t have a standard answer for that because it depends on so many factors like the scope of the project, the weather and any other construction (sometimes we are just one piece of a home build),” he adds. Jeffery enjoys leading each client through the design process. After they have agreed on the drawing, he can work his magic in the shop. And then, once the gate is installed and swinging, he and his team provide maintenance support, be it attention to the automation of the gate, greasing of hinges, automobile or storm damage or anything electronic that needs to be fixed. In fact, Jeffery has built such a reputation that he even services gates that are not designed by him!

“My favorite design is always the one I’m currently working on,” he says. “But if I had to narrow it down, it would be the gate I built with a tree design and the one that had a ‘braided’ bottom to it. I couldn’t figure out how to do the tree and one day I woke up and started sketching

it out and realized how to make it happen. The work behind creating it makes it special. I’m a symmetrical thinker, but a tree is very asymmetrical.” When it came to what he calls the braided gate, Jeffery was recollecting his leather work.

His advice for those considering their own business is to avoid the comparison game. “Everyone likes to constantly look at their competition, but you never really know what state their business is in behind the scenes. It’s a constant battle to stay on top in your market; remember that!”

At Work: Jeffrey Presbaugh combined his creative, artistic side with advanced welding and iron working skills to build a very special company, Aberdeen Custom Gate and Iron Work.

aus·pi·cious: giving or being a sign of future success The purpose of the Arkansas Jr. Cattlemen’s Association is to promote the welfare of the cattle industry, to further the education and cooperation of young people interested in cattle and the beef industry.

AJCA

Meet Your 2018 AJCA Youth Leaders A group of dynamic youth lead the Arkansas Jr. Cattlemen’s Association. The board of directors consists of officers, area representatives and board members at large. These 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. Grace Harris, 16 years old from Horatio, is serving this year as the AJCA President. Grace says, “Showing cattle has provided me with numerous opportunities that have allowed me to better myself as an agriculturalist and a leader.” Fellow AJCA members may not know that Grace is a starting forward on her high school’s varsity basketball team or that she is a member of the National Honor Society at her school. Grace shows and raises commercial heifers in hopes of winning her grandfather's memorial at the Arkansas State Fair. Her livestock goal this year is to exhibit the Supreme Champion Commercial Heifer at the Arkansas State Fair. Grace is looking forward to running for a position as an Arkansas FFA state officer, graduating from Horatio High and furthering her education at Oklahoma State University to become a pharmacist. Grace reports that being an AJCA member has added so many positive things to her life. Membership has provided numerous networking opportunities and has allowed her to grow as a leader repeatedly. Grace reports that she will forever be thankful to the AJCA for the positive attributes it has provided in her life. Seventeen-year-old Logan Sigmon is in the 11th grade at Berryville High School.

Because of my involvement in AJCA, I have gained invaluable knowledge as well as getting to meet important people in the cattle industry.”


Ryan Lane, age 15 of Siloam Springs is the AJCA Treasurer. His main responsibility in this position is to work with the other board officers and members to secure AJCA sponsors. He is a freshman at Siloam Springs High School. For Ryan, the best thing about showing cattle is all the people you get to meet and network with about the cattle industry.

Tate encourages fellow cattle showing youth to join AJCA because it promotes both youth and agriculture. Thirteen-year-old Kendon McAlister of Green Forest is an Area Vice President. He is in the 8th grade and home schooled. He loves meeting new people and gaining new friends. Showing cattle allows him to do just that. What most people would never believe about Kendon is that at one time he was very shy! Kendon shows and raises Maine Anjou, Chianina and Simmental cattle. This year he is focusing on different genetics in his herd with the hopes of raising a national champion. Kendon plans to attend Conner's State College and the University of Arkansas. There he will major in animal science while planning a career in embryology. Kendon says, “Everyone in this association is so friendly and helpful. I would encourage other people to join ACA if they are looking to have a fun time showing cattle as well as learn more about the show industry.” Area Vice President Sawyer Beggs is 11 years old and in the 5th grade at Mount Ida Middle School. He lives in Sims. What most of Sawyer’s AJCA friends don’t know about him is that he taught himself to play the piano and enjoys playing music at church. Sawyer enjoys meeting new people and making friends. He shows LimFlex and Angus cattle. His livestock goal is to win back-to-back showmanship competitions at the Arkansas State Fair. Sawyer plans to one day be a meteorologist. When asked what is the best part of being an AJCA member Sawyer said, “I would say the best thing to me is making new friends and learning more about showing cattle.” Area Vice President Baylee Mangrum is 17 years old and from Paragould where she in the 12th grade at Paragould High School. Baylee likes how showing cattle teaches her what hard work means. She enjoys the re-

sponsibilities associated with showing and raising cattle.

Baylee raises and shows Shorthorn, Shorthorn Plus, Maine Anjou and Mainetainer cattle. Her goal this year is to be in the in the Top 3 overall showmanship standings for AJCA. Baylee will attend Arkansas State University where she will major in agriculture education. She plans to obtain additional degrees in animal and plant science. Baylee says, “I like the fact that I have gotten to meet people from all over the state that have now become my close friends and the people that are part of the organization make you feel like you’re all one big family. Allyson Sellers is 18 years old. She is a senior at Vilonia High School and serves AJCA as an Area Vice President. Allyson’s favorite thing to do is working with her cattle. Actually, she loves her cattle! What most of Allyson’s cattle showing friends do not know about her is that she plays basketball and softball. She is currently on the track team as a thrower. Allyson raises and shows registered Angus cattle. Her livestock goal this year is to continue growing as a breeder and a showman. She wants to raise the best cattle she possibly can. Allyson plans to obtain an animal science/agriculture business degree with a master in animal physiology. The best thing about being an AJCA member is meeting people from all across the state. Area Vice President Blaine Wildy is from Manila. He is 17 and in the 11th grade at Buffalo Island Central High School. Blaine serves as an Area Vice President. He shows Chianina, Maine and Mainetainer heifers along with crossbred steers. What people do not know about Blaine is that he is actually not that quiet once you get to know him! His goal this year for all things in his life are to be better than he was yesterday. Be better than he was last year. Blaine values the time he can spend with his friends while at all the AJCA shows. His career goal is to graduate from college with a plant science degree. He will then return to the family row crop farm but continue to build his cattle herd. Kenzie Chambliss, Area Vice President, is from DeBerrie. She is 15 years old and a freshman at Perryville High School where she is also a cheerleader. Kenzie has been showing cattle since age 6 and she is an avid hunter. Her livestock goal for this year is to learn more about genetics so she can improve her herd. Kenzie shows Hereford and American commercial heifers while assisting her family with their commercial cow/calf operation. She plans a career in agriculture that focuses on forestry. Kenzie says, “The best thing about being an AJCA member is meeting new people who love to show cattle like I do.” Mackenzie Morrison is an Area Vice President. She is 18 years old and in the 11th grade at Mountain Home High School. To Mackenzie, the best part about showing cattle is getting to spend quality time with my family and making new friends. Not many of her cattle showing friends know that in the summer she is a lifeguard at the city pool in Mountain Home. Mackenzie’s family

raises and show steers as well as a variety of different breeds of bulls and heifers. Her goal this year is to be competitive in the show ring with her new heifer. Mackenzie plans to attend college at Arkansas State University at Mountain Home. After two years, she will transfer to a four-year school where she will pursue a career in agriculture. Mackenzie says that in AJCA you make many friends from all over the state. Those people start out as just friends, but then become family. Eleven-year-old Josie Wilkins of Lamar is in the 6th grade at Lamar Middle School. Josie is an AJCA Area Vice President. Her favorite part of showing is being able to travel around the state and country showing cattle and spending time with friends. Some things other AJCA members may not know about Josie is that she plays softball, basketball and shoots archery. Josie says, “I love to hunt and fish!” She shows Chianina, Chi-Angus, Maines, and commercial heifers. Josie’s livestock related goal this year is to become a better showman and to become more skilled at fitting her own cattle. Josie plans on becoming a registered nurse and operating her own cow/calf operation. Josie says that the best thing about being an AJCA member is making so many friends that have the same interests as her! Kacie Bragg of Enola attends the 9th grade at Greenbrier Junior High School. She is 15 years old and shows Red Angus Cattle. Her fellow AJCA members do not know that she plays the guitar. As part of AJCA, she likes getting to learn more about cattle and developing new friendships. Kacie wants to improve her showmanship skills and attend more shows. Her career goal is to become an agriculture teacher. Kacie would encourage other youth to join the AJCA because it helps you to develop friendships and improves your cattle industry knowledge. Newly elected AJCA Board member, Kaitlyn Vest of Branch is 14 years old. She is in the 9th grade at County Line High School. Kaitlyn says, “I love being able to work with and show cattle. It has helped me to learn new information about cattle and is helping me get a head start on my future career as a veterinarian.” Her fellow AJCA members do not know that five years ago she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Kaitlyn and her family raise and show registered Angus cattle. They also raise commercial Angus cattle. This year, she plans to be instrumental in the growth and development of her family's recently founded registered Angus herd. “The best thing about being an AJCA Member is that there are numerous opportunities to participate in Livestock Shows and network with other people with the same interests as my own,” she adds. “It gives me a chance to display what I have been working so hard to achieve. The experiences gained while being a member of AJCA will also help me in my future.” In addition to these 15 outstanding leaders, 12 adults serve alongside the youth to advise and assist in carrying out the goals of the association. AJCA is thankful for their service and many contributions!

TECHTRENDS

For many years, cattle producers have been shipping embryos and semen across the country. This has become second nature to many people within the industry. One growing trend is exporting embryos to other countries. To export to another country, there are testing requirements for the donors, bulls and even the embryos.

So, where does someone even start? We had the opportunity to sit down with Trans Ova Genetics Export Coordinator, Nicole Seible, and discuss the key facts to know when it comes to exporting embryos to other countries. What countries are we able to export to? Trans Ova Genetics can export to just about any country depending on the embryo testing requirements of the desired country. The Top 3 countries we export embryos to are Canada, the EU and Australia. Are there any specific requirements when it comes to exporting to China? Anyone interested in exporting China needs to have the work performed at a China-approved facility. Trans Ova Iowa and Trans Ova Maryland are the only two facilities currently in the Trans Ova system approved for China exports. There are only 20 approved facilities currently approved in the United States. Also, it is important to know that the semen needs to come from a China approved bull stud facility. Currently, there is only 11 approved bull studs.

Who sets all the testing requirements for exports? The USDA and the specific country’s government work to set testing requirements and regulations to bring embryos in and out of the country. Trans Ova does not make these regulations and rules. We have a dedicated staff that learns these rules and ensures we are following them and educating our clients. How often do the requirements change? The USDA or country’s government can change requirements at their discretion. The rules could be set for 10 years, and then change all of the sudden. In these cases, we work quickly to make the appropriate changes in our system and make sure any current shipments are still eligible to be exported.

By Sara Kober Being able to be proactive and planning ahead is extremely beneficial. Are there different requirements for in vitro (IVF) embryos versus in vivo (ET) embryos? Yes, depending on which country you have chosen for export. For Canada, IVF and ET embryos, as of right now, do not have any testing requirements. But again, that is up to the USDA and Canada’s discretion to change the testing requirements as they see fit. Some countries require extra testing for IVF and some countries require extra testing for ET. Therefore, it is good to investigate testing requirements before the embryo creation process begins.

How many embryos did Trans Ova export last year? Last year, Trans Ova exported just over 5000 embryos. What is the most important thing people should know about exporting embryos? Be proactive! One of the most important things people should know about exporting embryos is knowing what country you would like to export to. From there, Trans Ova can identify the country’s testing requirements. A common mistake is that people will create embryos for a designated country then change their mind. By that time, it is too late, as each country has different requirements and the testing window may have closed.

Ashtin Guyer

Age: 16 Hometown: Robinson, Illinois

Species and breeds of livestock you show: I have shown cattle and pigs of all breeds all my life, and recently showed sheep in the 2018 National Western Stock Show. Siblings names/ages: Nalaney (14) What is your favorite show and why? The National Western Stock Show is my favorite show. I love the atmosphere and the mile high memories that our family has made on that fairgrounds! It’s not just your average show. What is your favorite show memory and why: My favorite show memory was at the Illinois State Fair in 2016 when my family exhibited the Supreme Champion Heifer, Grand Champion Barrow, 3rd Overall Supreme Gilt, and Reserve and 5th Overall steers. This day has stuck in my head since it happened. Running back and forth between the cattle and pig barn, and showing the heifer in the pouring down rain and flooding, all we can do now is sit back and celebrate what our family accomplished those two days. Tell us about your all-time favorite show animal: My all time favorite show animal was my steer, KC, I showed in Kansas City in 2016. We had shown him many times being named Champion Steer 12 times, and at the National Western where he was Champion Prospect Steer, then onto Kansas City. This one has been my baby from the start, and we had one heck of a ride together.

Do you have anything you keep in your show box for good luck or any good luck rituals on show day? I don’t have anything I keep in my showbox for good luck, but when my family and I go to a show, we will look at our exhibitor number, our hotel room number, and the weight of our pigs or cattle and see if the number adds up to a 7 or a 9. These two numbers are our family’s “lucky numbers,” so we try to find these numbers anywhere we can when we are at a show. Least favorite show-day or show-barn activity: I honestly don’t have a least favorite activity when it comes to showing livestock. There is nothing I would rather be doing than being in the barn or the showring, so when it comes to my least favorite thing, it would have to be not being in the barn, because that is where I live. What do you like to do outside of the barn/show ring: Aside from the showring, I like to be with my friends and family, or our church youth group, or going to Nalaney’s basketball games, volleyball games, or her track meets. Favorite book or author: To be completely honest, my favorite “books” to read are the livestock magazines that come in the mail. Favorite movie: One of my all time favorite movies is War Room. If you haven’t seen this

movie, you should definitely watch it. It will change your whole perspective on life. Favorite food: My favorite food is a good home cooked meal with my family. What are your career goals: As far as to what I want to do after high school, I am still undecided. There is no doubt that I will always be in the livestock industry, but not sure on what I want to study or where I want to go right now. Do you have a quote or motto you like to follow? If so, what is it? Our family’s motto is “there is no wavering in this barn.” Our family lives off of this motto. When it gets late at night and you still need to walk pigs, or wash one last calf, we remember this motto and get those pigs walked and that calf washed before we call it a night. Who is someone you’d like to thank for helping you succeed in the showring: Most of all I want to thank my family. Without those three, our success in the showring would be impossible. Also to those individuals who have helped us get these pigs and cattle. You know who you are, and if it were not for you, all of those banners hanging on our wall wouldn’t be there. I am so grateful for the support system my family has. We are truly very fortunate!


Nalaney Guyer

Age: 14 Hometown: Robinson, Illinois

Species and breeds of livestock you show: I show hogs and cattle. I have shown almost all breeds of hogs and the cattle I have shown, Angus, Chi’s, Maine, Mainetainer, Simmental and Crosses. Steer and Heifers.

Least favorite show-day or show-barn activity: My least favorite show barn activity would have to be cleaning pens in both cattle and pig barn, but I know it’s something that has to be done.

Siblings names/ages: I have one sister, Ashtin and she is 16.

What do you like to do outside of the barn/show ring: Right now I am playing sports. I am in volleyball now, but I also Cheerlead and Run Track. I love these sports, but they take up a lot of my time.

What is your favorite show and why? My favorite show would have to be the National Western Stock Show, in Denver, Colorado. It’s one of the largest shows we go to and the prettiest location with the mountains. My family always has a great time when we go out there. What is your favorite show memory and why: In 2014 when i was 9, I had the Grand Champion Market Hog at National Western. It’s just something about walking on that green carpet that gives you the chills. Tell us about your all-time favorite show animal: My most favorite show animal is the one I showed at the Illinois State Fair in 2016 and had Grand Champion Market Hog with. “Mac Daddy”, and we had a bond like no other. Do you have anything you keep in your show box for good luck or any good luck rituals on show day? My family and I always pray in the morning and ask the lord to give us faith and strength to get though the day.

192 March 2018 • theshowcircuit.com

Favorite book or author: I don’t like to read, but my favorite book would have to be, “Heaven is For Real”. Favorite movie: My favorite movie would have to be “War Room”! This movie is very motivational and inspiring. A must watch family movie! Favorite food: My favorite food is salads. They are just something easy and quick to make on late nights. What are your career goals: After college I want to help out my dad in the family business and work on the family farm but never quit showing, and raising livestock. But I still have lots of time to figure out what I want to do. Do you have a quote or motto you like to follow? If so, what is it? Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future. Who is someone you’d like to thank for helping you succeed in the showring: If I named everyone that has helped me in my show career the list would go on forever! I would especially like to thank my family for everything they do for me! Wether it is making sure I get to my practices and games, to doing my part in the barn while I’m not there. I know there are times they are not able to go to my games due to chores at home. Thank you dad, I know the long hours you put in traveling, for long periods of times, and knowing you are doing it for my sister and I. Also we couldn’t do anything that we do today without my mom. She is the one who works in the barn day in and day out just making sure everything gets done while we are at school.


VIEW FROM A VET

Umbilical Hernias in All Their Splendor

U

mbilical hernias are a significant problem in the show cattle industry; both clubbies and purebred cattle. Although in some breeds there may be heritable tendencies, the vast majority of hernias are thought to be due to a lack of scarring at the umbilicus because of inflammation, most often caused by infection of the structures that make up the umbilicus (two umbilical arteries, one umbilical vein and the urachus). Predisposition to development of the infected umbilicus is directly associated with the lack of colostrial absorption, which can be predisposed by dystocia (difficult calving), weather stress, or poor colostrial production by the dam. Often, incomplete closure of the umbilicus can be associated with abscessation of the urachus; the structure actually becomes a pus-filled viscus, which can lead to ascending infection and more problems with the calf, such as joint ill.

nia sac. Absolutely never incise an umbilical enlargement without positively identifying the content – this process nearly always does not turn out well. Abdominal wall hernias or defects do occur in the clubbie breeds and are thought to be heritable. These hernias or “defects” actually occur behind the umbilicus and are much more difficult to repair because there is no fibrous tissue associated with the defect. Therefore, special technique must be followed in order to ensure successful repair. Surgical Correction Surgical correction of an umbilical or ab-

dominal wall hernia is always the first consideration to ensure the proper repair of a hernia defect. It has been reported in the literature that continued local irritation applied to a small defect (sticking a finger in the hernia with gentle pressure) may stimulate fibrosis of the hernia ring. I have not personally witnessed this, and the use of clamps or bands have pretty much been a nuisance. Surgical repair of these defects is fairly straight-forward; failure to follow a proper accepted procedure can prove disastrous. Surgery should be performed only in the proper setting with proper restraint and analgesia for the animal’s

To determine the extent of infection, it is always advised to evaluate the umbilical site with ultrasound, to ensure complete knowledge of the extent of the problem and to identify if other structures (i.e. intestine, abomasum) may be associated with the hernia. Never insert a needle into a hernia to “see what’s in it,” as this can lead to contamination and infection of the content of the her-

“If treated properly, repair can be accomplished allowing the animal a long and productive life without altering the appearance or function of the individual.” comfort. I feel general anesthesia is a must to provide for the patient’s comfort and to reduce the risk of contamination at the surgical site. In my opinion, the barnyard is not the proper place to perform the surgery and ensure a proper outcome. When risks are not reduced, contamination of the surgical site by foreign body and bacteria can lead to infection, therefore reducing the chances for complete healing of the abdominal wall. If infection occurs post-surgery, many times the repair breaks down and materials used in the original repair act as foreign bodies to prolong sepsis and interfere with healing. Often when this occurs, subsequent attempts at repair are compromised because of the contamination caused during the first surgery and presence of suture and/or mesh and the

Transitional Year Ahead Arguably, this year is shaping up to be a year of transition from market realignment and balancing to what passes for normalcy in the modern age. That, following a decade of financial shock and adjustment stemming from the Great Recession. For cattle producers, throw in more than a decade of sifting and shifting the impacts of the ethanol-induced commodity price shock and then massive price swings in cattle and beef markets spawned by historic drought. For the growing domestic economy, the transition means a return to the rising inflation and interest rates that accompany a growing, fully-employed economy. For cattle producers, it means narrowing margins and even more price volatility. Chances for cattle profit are declining Cattle producers remain strongly positioned to ferret some profitability from the year. That could be a few dollars per head or near $100 for cow-calf producers, depending on which analysts you consult, as well as the cost structure of individual operations. But, margins will likely narrow across all production sectors, even before considering the nascent, expanding drought across a wide swath of cattle country.

At its recent 2018 Industry Outlook, CattleFax projected the average price for feeder steers (750 lbs.) at $145/cwt., with a range from the upper $120s to $160/cwt. CattleFax pegs average steer calf (550 lbs.) prices at $158, ranging from $170 for the spring high to the upper $130s for the fall low. For both this year, and in terms of the current cattle cycle, CattleFax CEO, Randy Blach, says demand may keep calf prices above the cost of production for low-cost and average-cost producers. CattleFax projects the average fed steer price this year at $115 with a range of $110-$130/cwt. The most recent World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates project fed steer prices at $122-$126 in the first quarter; $117-$125 in the second; $110-$120 in the third; $112-$122 in the fourth. CattleFax expects input costs to remain manageable, with grain prices expected to remain steady. However, with more livestock to feed in 2018 and the smallest acreage on record last year, CattleFax predicts hay prices will increase $10-$15 per ton with additional weather-related price risks. Expanding drought continues to force more cattle off pasture, while increasing

By Wes Ishmael the need of more feed earlier for cattle that are retained. Even without dry conditions, pasture prices continue to accelerate. For example, pastureland and ranchland values increased faster than cropland values in the fourth quarter, according to the latest Agricultural Finance Monitor published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. That was for states within the 8th Federal Reserve District: Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee. Quality farmland values in the area rose 5% in the fourth quarter, compared to a year earlier, while ranchland and pastureland values increased 14.8%. Cash rents for Quality farmland increased 3.9%, while rents for ranchland and pastureland rose by 10.1%. As for price volatility, Blach noted that price swings of $40/cwt. ($550 per head) for fed cattle are common from highs to lows during the past three years. Shorter term, he says it’s common to see daily cash fed cattle prices move $14-$18/cwt. within two or three weeks. More broadly, Blach highlighted feedlot profits and losses in recent years: $4.5 billion profit in 2014; $6.5 billion lost in March 2018 • theshowcircuit.com

THE BIG PICTURE

For both this year, and in terms of the current cattle cycle, CattleFax CEO, Randy Blach, says demand may keep calf prices above the cost of production for low-cost and average-cost producers.

2015-16; $4 billion profit last year. These figures are based on a simple average without price risk management. “These equity swings are unprecedented and the reason risk management has increased,” Blach says. “We think this will continue. We think we’ll have more price volatility than at any time in the past.” Economic strength and demand Cattle markets are unfolding against the backdrop of a strengthening domestic and international economy. “Expect an expanding global economy, strong U.S. consumer confidence and persistent economic recovery in many rural areas, but temper that optimism with another year of on-farm belt tightening due to lingering financial stress from low commodity prices,” says a recent, wide-ranging 2018 outlook report from CoBank’s Knowledge Exchange Division. Notwithstanding the canyon-wide, volatile swings on Wall Street in recent weeks, the domestic economy continues to strengthen—growing GDP and wages, historically low unemployment and general consumer optimism. “Consumer confidence and the unemployment rates are at their best levels since 2000 and inflation-adjusted wages have been growing faster than the historical average since 2014,” according to the CoBank report. “Add in the major gains in housing prices and the stock market, and you get a wealth effect that is causing consumers to save less and spend more. Business investment will rise in 2018 to keep up with the strengthening demand.” After years of slow, stable growth characterized by limited volatility, domestic economic growth will likely come with growing inflation and interest rates—a primary contributor to the Wall Street rollercoaster of late.

Internationally, the growing economy means more consumers have the jingle to buy more U.S. beef. U.S. Beef export value last year averaged $286.38 per head of fed slaughter, up 9% from 2016 and the second highest on record, accord-

ing to data released by USDA and compiled by the U.S. Meat Export Federation. The value of U.S. beef exports last year exceeded $7 billion for only the second time in history. For broader perspective, Kevin Good, CattleFax senior analyst explained at the aforementioned Outlook session, “The balance of trade improved by 1 billion lbs. between 2015 and 2017, offsetting 40% of the production growth.” Beef production will continue to expand for at least a couple more years, considering last year’s ongoing herd expansion. There were 31.72 million beef cows to start this year, according USDA’s recent Cattle inventory report. That’s 509,800 head more (+1.63%) than Jan. 1 of 2017. CattleFax analysts say additional expansion of 200,000-400,000 beef cows is possible over the next several years. CattleFax projects beef production this year 3% more than last year at 27.5 billion pounds, ultimately peaking at more than 29 billion lbs. for the cycle. “Beef production in the U.S. is on the rise, and export outlets have never been more important,” says Trevor Amen, industry analyst with CoBank’s Knowledge Exchange Division. “However, the U.S. is threatening to retreat from key trade deals and the U.S.’s beef exporting competitors are forging their own deals with major global beef importers.” In a separate CoBank report, Amen analyzes the impact of trade uncertainty on U.S. beef exports. He points out that approximately 80% of U.S. beef exports are sold to countries that could be affected by ongoing trade pact negotiations. Those trade deals included the Trans Pacific Partnership from which the U.S. withdrew, along with renegotiation of the U.S.-Korea Freed Trade Agreement and the North American Freed Trade Agreement. “We have to see these exports grow,” Blach says. “We’ll need to see record export numbers through the balance of the decade to keep supplies from overwhelming the market.” He adds that overall demand will be the key to maintaining fed cattle prices in the $100 area through 2020.

What Makes Some People More

COMPETITIVE? We all know the kind of person who ALWAYS has to win, whether they are in the show ring or sports arena or playing cards, it’s a defining part of their personality. But what makes them so different from the person who can play and just enjoy the game win or lose? By Sharla Ishmael

I

t’s a question I think about a lot as I sit in the bleachers and watch my daughter’s basketball games and practices – why doesn’t this kid or that one who has so much potential care more or work harder? To be clear, it’s not my daughter I wonder about. That girl was born with a competitive streak that is wide and deep. You try to tie her up in a jump ball, you better be ready for her to sling you on the floor. She weighs about 125 pounds and 120 of it is heart. Play a friendly game of Monopoly with her? Pfft… it’s a blood sport if Josie is at the table. My other child likes to win too, but Brooks can usually say, “It’s just a game” and go on with life. So how can two kids raised in the same house by the same parents be so different? The Olympics are on at the moment – always a fascinating window into man/ woman’s ability to push themselves past any rational notion of physical limits as well as the beauty of humankind’s desire to be the very best, overcoming every obstacle and rival. So, what separates these athletes from the ones sitting at home watching them? Is it raw talent or is it something less measurable like grit, work ethic, mental toughness, luck, ambition or support? My friends on social media had a lot to say on the topic. For instance, show mom and fellow basketball mom Jennifer Carrico said, “It may be how you are brought up. I also think it’s somewhat genetic.

Some people are just more passionate about certain things in life and competitiveness is just natural. And if the person knows what it will take to attain that win, then they have a leg up on others.” Livestock photographer and horsewoman Nancy Pruitt added, “DNA can, without a doubt, override upbringing. I believe you either possess the desire to excel or you don’t.” On the flip side, mom, grandmother and former graphic designer Betty Baird had this to add, “I had four children and they were all different, some very competitive and some could care less, so I don’t believe it is genetic.” Another veteran mom of the show ring and gym, Caryn Vaught added, “We think it’s due to your social upbringing. If you are surrounded by competition growing up, you have a tendency to be competitive.” Then there is my friend from New Mexico, Kelly Boney, a rancher who has a different perspective many of us can appreciate. “For me it was a combination of a fellow 4-H member whose parents did all the work, beating me at demonstrations and a participation ribbon at the County Fair. The 4-H member spurred me to do more research, spend countless hours writing and rewriting speeches and memorizing…. I finally won the Public Speaking contest; by that time, I had bigger and better goals. The

222 March 2018 • theshowcircuit.com

participation ribbon always reminded me I never wanted one of those again, LOL! Granted it was for baking and I did give that up.” And high school friend, Lindy Wells, who is and always has been a very competitive horsewoman, now in the cutting arena, was just as honest, “I’m a perfectionist, and I don’t like to lose AT ALL. If you don’t mind losing, you never improve.” My former co-worker, Roxanne Erramouspe, pointed out, “As a teacher for 20 years and a parent for almost that long, I will say that so much of it has to do with the expectations of a person’s parents/guardians and teachers. There’s a difference between ‘doing your best’ and ‘doing whatever it takes to get the job done.’ The true competitor chooses the latter.” Another good point from advertising executive Kathy Cornett, “I think it reflects a little insecurity and the need to prove oneself to oneself. The winners I know may win in competitive environments, but they also give themselves trophies for little wins through the day. I would look at birth order and family modeling as well.” Most of you reading this will likely know this lady from the show road. Ethel Kelley added, “For me it has always been an overwhelming desire to excel, to be the best — the prize is seldom as great as

the pride in having achieved it!” Another great lady from a longtime show steer family legacy, Theresa Pritchard made a good point, “Upbringing. Learning that anyone can compete, but to be a true competitor it takes hard work, desire and hopefully the passion grows. The harder you work, the luckier you get.” And fellow Aggie/photographer/ mom Erin Worrell probably summed up a lot of these thoughts very well. “Drive and passion, either it’s there or it’s not depending on personality. But how that drive and passion are developed through upbringing, encouragement and experiences is very much a contributing factor.” My friends also mentioned a whole laundry list of other factors: birth order, ability to perform under pressure, ambition, goals, work ethic, etc. But when you’re analyzing what makes somebody great at a sport or showing or whatever, you must also answer this question – what drives the top competitors to continue to get better once they are already at the pinnacle of their field? In my mind, the athlete who most personifies the word competitor must be Michael Jordan. You can argue whether Kobe or LeBron or whomever is more talented but nobody ever out-competed Jordan. He co-wrote a book with Mark Vancil titled “Driven from Within,” which


HOW TO BE COMPETITIVE By Ed Latimore chronicles not only his basketball career but also his relationship with Nike and how they worked together to create his eponymous shoe line that became a second empire for each of them. “When my play started providing me with rewards, then I wanted to prove I deserved them. I never felt the desire to rest on what I had accomplished. I never felt like I deserved to drive a Bentley when I got my first contract, or live in a mansion. Those things might be symbols of success to some people, but there are a lot of people who confuse symbols with actual success. “Commitment cannot be compromised by rewards,” Jordan explained. “Excellence isn’t a one-week or oneyear ideal. It’s a constant. There will be days when you don’t feel on top of your game, or meetings in which you aren’t your best but your commitment remains constant. “Money never drove me. Sure, I wanted to be successful. I wanted the nicer things that success brings. But my passion was pure. The way I played, and the way I go about things, has never had anything to do with money. …I wanted to be more than a slightly better version of somebody else.” His co-author Vancil wrote, “What seems apparent now more than it ever did while he was playing is that the most remarkable aspects to Michael Jordan

are those that can neither be seen nor measured.” One measure of a great competitor is how he/she affects those around them. In a Psychology Today article on competitiveness, another winning NBA player emphasized how talent is not enough. “‘Great players can have great impacts, but great players with great attitudes have really great impacts,” says Malik Rose, a former New York Knicks forward who won two NBA titles with the San Antonio Spurs. “When a star comes along and spreads his intensity and desire to the other players, it’s huge. “When the Spurs captured those titles in 1999 and 2003, the team was led by a pair of players, David Robinson and Tim Duncan, with Hall of Fame skills, Hall of Fame work ethics, and Hall of Fame attitudes. They led by example— hustling after every loose ball and playing each game as if it were vital to existence. “‘That’s why we won,” Rose says. “Everyone followed those guys.’” Furthermore, a lasting legacy in the game, whatever that game is, is probably the highest compliment anyone can give to an ultra-competitive person. Take, for instance, Shaun White – America’s legendary snowboarder who won our hearts as a teenaged “Flying To-

mato,” winning gold in 2006 and again in 2010. In 2014 he failed to medal and then suffered a terrible injury in Australia last fall that gave him 62 stitches in his face – and no doubt a mental obstacle to overcome, on his way back to the Olympics in 2018. If you got to watch his 2018 gold medal-winning halfpipe run, in which he had to give the best performance of his career to beat back his younger competitors, it was easy to see by his overwhelming emotion this win probably meant more to him than all the others… the one that proved at age 31 he was still the best in a sport he helped define. But it’s more than that. Columnist Jerry Brewer of the Washington Post gave the best perspective on White’s comeback: “That’s not just how you validate a reputation. That’s how you elevate a sport. Sometimes, there’s a difference between dominating and elevating. An all-time great can happen to own a lesser era, yet fail to advance the game. To elevate requires a combination of dominant performance and a collection of challengers with the ability and chutzpah to test a great one’s limits. Of the many gifts White has bestowed upon snowboarding, this is the most important: He inspired future generations to come after him. And they’re making their charge now.”

Most people think they’re competitive but they aren’t. They just like to win. Everyone likes to win. A true competitor is a rare breed. Enjoying the feeling of crossing the finish line first doesn’t make you competitive. It’s what happens during the race that ultimately determines if you’re actually a competitor.

• Always give 110%. • Compare yourself only to your old self. • Competitive people never make excuses. • Competitive people give credit when credit is due. • The competitor never dwells on the past.

OUR FEATURED BULL OF 2018!

Look for that dynamic steer to make a run next winter at the National Western Stock Show Market Steer show. Be sure to check out the updated Black Power Play December 1 preview video that has been viewed over 30,000 times on social media. Black Power Play is like no other 50% Maine Anjou bull, he has top steer producers like Ward Eckloff and Rob Vanhove excited for their operations and also top female producers like John Sullivan requesting sexed female semen to mate some of his legendary donors. 100% of resulting progeny register as Maintainers! Add him to your 2018 breeding plans early as supply might become limited as breeding season approaches.

SUPERMAN was the bull at National Western Stock Show backed up by the most full and maternal brothers that have sold for incredibly high sale prices that went on to win some of the country’s largest cattle shows. Superman’s donor dam “Lois Lane” has grossed over $400,000 in lifetime progeny sales for Chad Thompson of South Dakota. Donor Lois Lane top selling steers have commanded $60,000, $46,000 & $30,000 to the Morrow & Boersen families and went on to win all over the country including Badger Kickoff Classic, Michigan Winter Beef Show and Michigan Livestock Expo. We were fortunate to win the bid on Superman in Chad Thompson Fall sale on now we are proud to offer him to the public in 2018! SIRE:

RED NECK might be the most exciting clean sire to ever hit the market place. This shorthorn marked Monopoly son had us excited the day we bought him. Then on January 11, 2018 when we received paperwork that he had tested TH Free & PHA Free we were even more overwhelmed. Backed by the powerful “Mel-Bar Dream Lady” PB Shorthorn donor, Red Neck has already had flushmates that have won Fort Worth Stock show for Cyclone Trace, 4th Overall at 2018 National Western Stock Show for Abi Henderson, and a maternal brother by MAB sold for $53,000 for Bruns, Criner, Jackson. The work is done here, now go raise some high sellers and show champions!

TH/PHA Fr ee

WE LIKE HIS DESIGN BETTER THAN ORIGINAL BLEEDIN PURPLE! 1. History Lesson For The Younger Generation: Original Bleedin Purple was born in 2004 and was successfully displayed by MLC at the 2005 National Western Stock Show. He was praised as one of the leading Heat Wave sons of the time and was actually two years ahead of Monopoly in terms of descending from a Heat Wave x Angus cross. Monopoly being born in 2006 and displayed in Denver in 2007. 2. Untimely and unfortunate end for Bleedin Purple: In January 2006 while on lease in Texas Bleedin Purple passed away due to bloat. He was young and only had semen collected from his rookie year. That semen has since fluctuated in price as high as $700/Unit. 3. Recent success for Bleedin Purple progeny: While most club calf bulls are here today and gone tomorrow Bleedin Purple calves quality and consistency have stood the course of time and enjoyed their most successful year in 2017, 13 years after Bleedin Purple was born. 4. We have always looked for an outstanding Bleedin Purple son and in the fall of 2017 we finally found what we were looking for: Michael Greiner contacted us in the fall of 2017 about a younger bull with tremendous potential. He stated that Mark Copus wanted to purchase him for a Fort Worth Steer but he thought he might make a better bull prospect. After we got him home, John Maples was by the show barn to view a December sale group at MLC. He also pressed us to sell him for a holdover steer. The opportunity to add Bleedin Purple genetics back into the market place was too exciting for us to resist. So we now introduce Bleedin Purple 2, new in 2018 at MLC! #BreedLautner

AMERICAN PHARAOH is a bull that is definitely an up and comer in our program. More and more the university judges are leaning towards those exotic front ends. American Pharaoh delivers this feature while keeping the muscle and top width extra stout. We sold a small group of American Pharaoh calves in December from our Mother in Law’s commercial based cow herd. The top gold colored steer sold to Bob May and a grey baldy has already been selected Grand Champion at an Oklahoma jackpot. When you can get that kind of results from a commercial group of cows, imagine what American Pharaoh can get done on more exotic females. Sample American Pharaoh in 2018 and look for the impact on your 2019 calf crop.

MAX WALTER LAUTNER

The following is a letter to our infant son Max Walter Lautner, we hope he enjoys reading it sometime in his teenage years to let him know the circumstances surrounding his first few months after being born in the Fall of 2017. We love him and hope he enjoys reading this as a healthy teenager. and dad Googled info there wasn’t much that could help You were born on September 2, 2017 at Mercy Medical us prepare for what was to come in the Fall. Your Dr. Tarun Center in Des Moines, Iowa. Mom was having a normal Kumar stated that we would feed you and let your two ends grow closer together and at some point have surgery to Fall Saturday at the barn with Janie. You weren’t due for another 3 weeks and Fall Saturdays were spent working connect the two ends. on sale calves at the barn. Dad was in Eastern Iowa at Ben Danner’s looking thru his sale calves when the call came Only two days after you were born, you had surgery to that he needed to get on the road back towards Des Moines insert a g-tube for direct feedings to your stomach to quickly, “drive fast cause Max is on the way!” replace the intravenous nutrition you received initially. Dad arrived at 8:00 PM and you were delivered only 45 minutes later by the night nurse Lauren as the doctor was just walking into the room. You were ready to be out and you were not going to wait! It was the quickest delivery of the three we had, mom did great with no pain medicine. You weighed in at 4 pounds, 7 ounces and had a full head of bushy black hair. You were born with a condition called esophageal atresia, and this meant that your upper esophagus ended in a pouch and wasn’t connected to your lower esophagus and stomach. With no way for food to pass from your mouth to your stomach, intravenous nutrition would be needed. We were made aware of the condition over the summer leading up to your birth via ultrasound imaging. This particular condition is extremely rare so when your mom

262 March 2018 • theshowcircuit.com

This would become your mom’s passion, She spent countless hours pumping breast milk that would enable you to receive antibodies that would protect your little body and help you fight off infection, allowing you to continue to fight and grow. Daily walks down the hallway of the NICU were overwhelming. We worried constantly about the “what ifs” and the constant internal battle to ensure the best possible outcomes for you. During those walks down the 100 yard hallway to your room in #4005, were pictures of past NICU patients that had grown into healthy children. This was our wish, that your picture too would hang on the wall of the NICU. Most of September, October, November and December


was spent with your mom spending her free time with you at the hospital. The nurses and staff came to know mom on a first name basis and she became extra close with many of them that watched after you when she had to go home. So many of these nurses would become allies with your mom, fighting for you, and always your biggest fan.

decided to send an e-mail requesting emergency use of the magnet device directly to the FDA. Erin & Mom didn’t know if the e-mail request would work but as the saying goes “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” so a strongly worded and compassionate e-mail was sent with no assurance it would ever be read.

Matilyn even got to meet you for the first time in October and she said she was going to be the best big sister ever.

To our amazement and delight a return e-mail was received the very same hour! They detailed what we needed to do to “grease the wheels” and get the ball rolling in Max’s favor. OMG! 90 days into our NICU stay and we finally saw a small light at the end of the tunnel.

Halloween came and went, you were growing great. With each pound you gained it felt like a victory to us. In November Dr. Tarun Kumar informed us that your 27 gap between two ends was 1.5 cm. The plan was for a few more weeks of growing and then possibly have surgery to connect the two ends.

On November 19, Michael got to come to the hospital and meet you for the first time thru a glass window. NICU rules say children under the age of 3 can’t enter the facility. Michael was excited even though there was a barrier between him and you. In late November another x-ray was done and the gap unfortunately had widened to 2.5 cm between the two ends. This felt like a huge set back. In that time period we were made aware of a procedure using magnets that pull the two ends together to connect the tissue. This procedure is useful when the two ends are less than 4 cm apart, the magnets polarity is affective. The drawback is there have only been 11 cases in the United States where this procedure had been used. According to our doctors the FDA would need to sign off on the procedure because it is not a standard treatment. So the paperwork was filled out with slight resistance from a member of the Mercy hospital administration. After a few days word was then received that the FDA had taken the magnet procedure off the market due to a labeling issue. Our doctors told us we would need to wait at least another month to see if your two esophagus ends came closer together. We felt this labeling issue was a case of bureaucratic b.s. This felt like the second huge setback. This the part of the story which we really want you to remember, Max. On December 1, after a sleepless night and some consultation with mom’s friend Erin Houghton, they

Then... you will never guess what happened the following morning. An early morning call from nurse Mel informed us that the x-ray showed the two magnets were kissing! Tears of joy were shed again. Just in time for Christmas Max was finally getting closer to the positive outcome we had hoped for. It was now the hope of Dr. Mario Zaritzky and Dr. Tarun Kumar that the magnets touching thru pressure would kill the barrier tissue and then scar tissue would form around the two ends connecting them. Only time would tell if this process would be affective. On January 3, Dr. Mario Zaritzky flew back into Des Moines for the removal surgery of the magnets. We once again were cautiously optimistic. After a 1 hour procedure we were informed the magnets had been removed and it appeared the magnets had been successful! Michelle gave Dr. Mario Zaritzky & Dr. Tarun Kumar a very big hug on that day.

Your sister Matilyn’s birthday party was November 3 at Chuck - E - Cheese. It was an enjoyable time with friends & family but mom and dad both felt a little bit empty that you weren’t able to attend. While you were in the hospital we had to do our best to balance a sense of normality with your sister and brother. They needed us, you needed us. We did our best to provide for all of you.

Exactly 3 weeks from the day the FDA letter was sent on December 21, you had the magnet procedure completed by Dr. Tarun Kumar who was guided by Dr. Mario Zaritzky. Dr. Mario Zaritzky was the creator of the magnet device and he flew in from Chicago the morning of the procedure. There were still hurdles to cross but the magnets were in place. Tears of happiness were shed.

While you were still working hard to prepare to come home, we were so thankful for everyone in our family, the hospital and the FDA. In mid-January we proudly displayed “Make a Wish” in your honor at The National Western Stock show in Denver. “Make a Wish” will always have a special meaning for us. We feel that “Make a Wish” stands for the dedication and perseverance that a family takes on to make things happen. We found in the Fall of 2017 this is true not only in the show barn, but within our own lives. We often get caught up in the daily work and forget how fragile life truly is. Max, thank you for reminding us that what we do should be done in love, to stay tenacious and not be scared to make a wish. Love, Mom & Dad

2017 WAS OUR MOST REWARDING YEAR TO DATE IN THE SHOW CATTLE INDUSTRY! As Jeff Miller from Indiana told us “you hear some people are breeding for maternal, but there is not a more profitable segment of the industry than raising show steers and heifers with club calf influence when you are marketing cattle in online sales. 4-H families are most excited to win the county fair, district show, state fair or national market steer show. Especially when you are marketing livestock online. Is there any other way to market cattle in the year 2018, we don’t think so. With this as our guide, we are proud to offer you are newest group of exciting young sires that are sure to leave their mark on the show cattle world. In January we displayed the most & the best “In The Yards” and we hope to continue to do so in the future as we feel the live evaluation is as important as ever. As for the older bulls we will make it our stated goal to get as much Monopoly clone semen bred in 2018 as we possibly can. The show ring domination in 2017/2018 by this 10 + year old genetic line is hard to believe with the number of units slightly declining over the last few years. Make it your goal to breed your best cows to the Monopoly clones to insure high sellers and state fair/national champions as fat steers. Black Power Play & Goldie Locks calves will be featured heavily this spring and next fall on the blog.
