LIVESTOCK SUPPLEMENT & CONDITIONER The easy supplement for show-stopping results. Blue ribbons aren’t easy to come by – but fortunately, premium nutrition can be simple. By feeding your animal just a few ounces of ShowBloom a day, you give them essential protein, vitamins and minerals. The all-natural brewer’s yeast formula is palatable and increases digestibility and feed efficiency to create a shiny coat, clear eyes and improved muscling and hoof quality. Those are results that you – and the judges – can appreciate.

We are again excited to team up as western breeders and offer you a great set of heifers. These females will not only be competitive in the show ring, but will become tremendous cows for your own breeding program in the future! Between all three breeders we have over 50 years of experience in breeding cattle and have traveled the country year after year to incorporate the best genetics into each of our herds. We feel there are three key ingredients to producing great cattle; structure, fleshing ability, and confirmation. This group of females excel in all three! Mark your calendars for this great event and we look forward to seeing you!

Turn in your cards...

The life of

A few weeks ago on a trip from Iowa to Oklahoma, we rolled up on stadium lights and carnival rides lighting up the night sky. At first glance it was a county fair, but then it hit me. This wasn’t any old county fair; this was the Coffeyville County Fair. Now what would a Canadian gal, living in Iowa traveling to Oklahoma find so significant about Coffeyville, Kan.? Well, you could say that is where it all began for me. Nine years ago, I decided that I wanted be a part of a collegiate livestock judging team, and that would mean leaving my Canadian home and traveling the U.S. in search of a junior college team. After touring a few schools, Butler Community College ended up being the perfect fit. I knew that being a part of the team would be hard work, and I would have a lot to learn, but the payoff could be huge. When I arrived in Kansas, I was greeted by my coach Chris Mullinix, 12 sophomores, and 11 other freshman, none of whom were from Kansas. We were the out-of-state/country crews. It was the week before classes started, and I was about to take part in my first ever livestock judging team workout. We all piled into two 12-passenger vans and headed to Coffeyville, Kan. My first practice went something like this. That day Chris had decided we would workout on hogs. Let me give you a little background on the Canadian show pig industry - it is non-existent. I had judged hogs before in 4-H contests, but those were feeders hogs or sows that came from who knows where. It was 100-plus degrees that day, and I had never felt humidity like that in my life. I literally thought I was melting. And for a split second, I thought to myself, what in the world was I doing in Kansas, judging hogs, all while melting? I was taking the first step towards opportunities. This fall, hundreds of students have headed back to college – not just for a classroom education, but also to be a part of a livestock judging team. That team is a family of people that they will spend cherished moments with, make mistakes with and likely at times have a love/hate relationship with. Obviously, everyone is in search of trophies, banners, silver bowls, and national championships, but the things you learn about yourself when on a livestock judging team can’t be measured in awards. Two amazing years at Butler turned into two more years at Kansas State University, also participating on its livestock judging team. I got to

travel across the country, was given the chance to see some of the best livestock around, and networked with breeders who before I only knew by seeing their pictures against backdrops. My judging teammates are now successful industry professionals; some have even become livestock judging coaches, now molding the next generation. And, although we certainly don’t spend nearly the quality time together that we used to in those 12-passenger vans, I still know that I can count on them whenever needed. Today when I see livestock judging team on someone’s resume or it comes up in conversation, I have great respect for that person. I know that if their team was anything like my teams they put in countless hours, made huge sacrifices and understand the work ethic it takes to be successful. Livestock judging is my own fraternity. If you or your son and daughter are considering pursing livestock judging, I would encourage their pursuit. The life lessons they will learn, confidence they will gain and contacts they will make will be hard to find in any other organization or competitive sport. They will also probably have quite a bit of fun along the way. Good luck to all the livestock judging teams out there this fall. I will be patiently waiting to hear the drops from Kansas City and Denver, and the final results because once livestock judging is in your blood it never leaves.

Semen Quality

Plays Important Role in Reproductive Performance Achieving high pregnancy rates is critical to the economic return of breeding programs that use advanced reproductive technologies, including embryo transfer or even artificial insemination. While considerable emphasis is often placed on the nutritional and reproductive management of the cow herd, this is only half of the equation. Equally important is the quality and fertility of the semen used, or the male side of the equation. Though little emphasis is often placed on the bull, attention to semen quality and fertility should be an important consideration. Today, frozen semen is available from many of the great sires, collected by many different sources. While most bull collection programs follow standard protocols and strive to achieve basic quality control protocols, there can still be a great deal of variation in semen quality, warns Trans Ova Genetics’ representatives. Sometimes, improper shipment and storage or handling practices can compromise the quality of even the best semen, and there are definitely fertility and quality differences from one sire to another as well as differences from one collection to another from the same sire. Some bulls produce higher-quality semen than others. Even starting with excellent-quality fresh semen doesn’t always ensure that the semen will maintain the same quality through the freezing and thawing process. Therefore, it is recommended that a small amount of semen from one straw from each collection date of semen be examined microscopically to determine the percentage of progressively motile sperm. This should be performed under controlled conditions, and the result should be recorded. If there is ever any question about the semen quality of a bull prior to inseminating an animal – especially an expensive donor in embryo transfer– a breeder should have that semen tested for motility and morphology post-thaw, at the embryo transfer center or a reputable bull stud that provides this service. Whenever fresh semen is used, it is optimal to use the raw, fresh semen as soon after collection as possible. According to Trans Ova Genetics, this fresh semen should naturally be the most viable and fertile semen available, with better motility and sperm cell counts that are more highly concentrated. The use of fresh semen can be an effective alternative for donors who consistently produce large numbers of unfertilized eggs. Of course, in many cases – particularly with the most sought-after bulls that are not owned by the client – the use of fresh semen may not be feasible. Despite the occasional high cost and scarcity of semen from some bulls, frozen semen is a vital tool for incorporating elite genetics into any breeding program. The challenge, therefore, is identifying the highfertility bulls and managing the use of all semen to increase the odds of success. Several considerations should be made to accomplish this sire selection process. When ordering or packaging semen for embryo transfer purposes, ask the owner or bull stud for embryo transfer quality straws. This may include more total sperm per straw or collection dates with

increased quality in terms of motility and morphology. If this cannot be accomplished, breeders should ask the embryo transfer practitioner if they can identify the collection dates that have worked the best on popular bulls. Those dates then should be requested when semen is ordered. Another option for breeders to consider when using expensive or rare semen is to use this semen in an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program. A distinct advantage to using expensive or rare semen in IVF is the ability to stretch one unit across the aspirations of up to 5 or more donors, thus fertilizing multiple groups of embryos. Another advantage of an IVF program is that semen of the quality that may not work in an embryo transfer situation may work in an IVF fertilization scenario. With AI breeding, a breeder may want to consider using more than one unit of semen, instead of the single-unit protocol, inseminated at 10 to 12 hours after first standing heat. On occasion, multiple units of semen used across a period of time may result in increased conception rates in AI. When live cover is available, there also are several considerations that should be factored in to maximize pregnancy rates and breeding results. First of all, bulls should be annually tested for breeding soundness and fertility. Fortunately, new bull fertility tests have proven to be accurate, user-friendly, faster and more cost effective than the older, two-day laboratory method of testing fertility. A veterinarian or trained bull handler can easily administer these on-site test kits, and results can be secured in as little as 20 minutes. Prior to any live cover or collection of fresh semen for ET purposes, the bull should be “cleaned out” to ensure the best quality semen is available for the crucial breeding period. In order to screen out any low-fertility bulls in the breeding pasture, it is important that yearling bulls be subjected to a breeding soundness exam. The breeding soundness exam is the combination of a semen test, scrotal circumference measurement and physical examination of the reproductive tract along with parameters that should be met for bulls of a specific age. Nearly any veterinarian can perform these examinations effectively. Using quality semen is a critical step to achieving the breeding program results desired in an AI or ET program. Using semen with a high degree of fertility will greatly improve the number of viable embryos resulting through the fertilization process. A great deal of time and investment goes into the care, handling and breeding of elite females, and the cost of semen can be a huge investment. It pays to carefully consider the quality and fertility of the sires breeders are going to use in their ART programs, to help ensure the rewards and return on investment in the next calf crop.

Need More Money? Five Moves to Consider Regardless of whatever else may await you in life, saving for the future could be one of your biggest financial challenges. That’s why it’s important to take steps now to make sure you’ll have enough money on hand for retirement, family goals or unanticipated financial emergencies. A common question financial planners hear from clients is, “How can I save more than I’m saving now?” Fortunately, there are several ways you can accomplish that goal with a bit of professional help. Consider the following:

ment plan, consider increasing your contribution by an additional 1% or 2% of income. Even if you think that may be too much, try it out for a few months. The extra effort could make a big difference down the road: Contributing even $20 extra each week could provide you with an additional $87,493 after 30 years (before taxes), assuming 6% annual investment returns.2 use windfalls wisely. While it may be tempting to spend a windfall – such as an inheritance or workplace bonus – on something fun, it’s probably a better idea to use the money to enhance your long-term financial standing. For example, assuming you invest a $2,000 windfall in an account earning a 6% annual rate of return, it could grow to $2,698 after 5 years, $6,620 after 20 years or $12,045 after 30 years (before taxes).2 A Financial Advisor can help you implement effective strategies for reducing expenses and set up customized savings and investment plans to help pursue your goals.

Monitor expenses. Lowering your expenses by a modest amount, such as 1%, could allow you to boost your savings initiatives as much as a comparable increase in pay. To gain insights into your current spending habits, consider downloading a budgeting app for your smart phone. They’re much easier to use than they used to be and make expense tracking very simple. For example, many apps allow you to record your income and spending on the go, incorporating information from various accounts, in order to have an up-to-the-minute overview of your fiContributing even $20 extra each nancial standing each day. You can then look week could provide you with an for inefficiencies – and ways to economize.

additional $87,493 after 30 years...

reduce credit card expenses. On average, each US household with credit card debt owes a balance of more than $15,000.1 You can eliminate such debt faster – and start saving more – by paying more than the minimum monthly amount on your credit cards each month. For example, assume you have a $1,000 credit card debt with a 12% interest rate. By paying $20 each month, it would take 67 months to eliminate the debt and would cost you $353.43 in interest. But by doubling your monthly payment to $40, you would be out of debt in just 27 months. Your interest costs would be less than half – $103.28. Then, when you finish paying off your balance, redirect the money you’d been spending on debt each month to a savings or investment account. Another way to tackle debt expenses aggressively is by consolidating credit card balances to a single, lower-rate card. Comparison shop for the best rates, but beware of “teaser” rates that start low then jump higher after an initial introductory period ends. Boost contriButions.

“We give MULTIMIN 90 at birth, branding, breeding & on all of our bulls” ®

Producers know that we use MULTIMIN 90 on our own herd and that we’re sold on it. They see the success we’ve had with it and make the decision to use it on their herds. It’s spreading by word of mouth. Producers are saying “Doc’s got me on the blue stuff” and they want it. We AI using MULTIMIN 90 on customers’ heifers to help synch their program and we’re seeing a 10% to 15% increase (from 55% to 70%) with settling rates and that’s a BIG DEAL. In our bull breed programs with first calf heifers, we’re seeing 96% to 97% conception rates and second calf heifers a rate of 94% —again that’s really good! Before MULTIMIN 90 we were only seeing an 82% rate.

We used to treat 15–20 head, how we treat 1 or 2. We’ve pretty much eliminated health issues and treatment. And in our stocker cattle, we’re using a lot less antibiotics. We give them an initial shot of MULTIMIN 90 and another after 60 days. They seem to have a good solid immune system. I believe 90% of the cattle are get-

FBFS Wheel Man 649W was the 2012 Denver Champion Simmental Bull. We will be selling 250 units of semen in packages of 5 or 10. The mating that produced this champion is foolproof and from the looks of things he will breed in true championship style.

T110

T110 is an outcross to both Legacy and Power Drive lines. She offers unmatched power, dimension, and skeletal integrity to the Simangus world. She’s a fault free individual that is doing more than her job. Definitely, a cow worth investing in. Embryos offered will be sired by FBFS Wheel Man 649W, High Voltage, and Broker.

Archery

The Latest Craze in Outdoor Life Blame it on the wildly popular teen series “The Hunger Games,” whose 16-yearold heroine Katniss wields a bow and arrow to help her survive a competition where 24 teenagers fight to the death like a televised, postapocalyptic version of Roman gladiator games. Of course it’s not just Katniss; many of today’s popular movies and books feature archery as the weapon of choice for the hero/heroine. The Olympics probably helped fuel the popularity of this ancient sport this summer as well. Whatever inspired the fascination, archery clubs and ranges are

all the rage these days. Did you know there are even 4-H clubs for archery? When my daughter signed up this year in Texas there was a waiting list so many kids were interested. I’ve also been told that archery is very popular among the moms in the crowd. At “our” range there are even special ladies night/ day events. In addition to 4-H, whether it is you or your child that wants to try out archery, you can find local clubs associated with USA Archery (USAA), which provides opportunities from beginner to Olympic level skills. There is also the National Field Archery Association (NFAA), an affiliate of the National Archery Association (NAA) and I’m sure other private groups associated with particular ranges. Here is a little lingo and background to get you started: Types of bows Longbow: used in the Middle Ages, this is a D-shaped bow about the height of the bowman and traditionally made from one piece of wood. Recurve bow: good choice for beginners with curved tips and a lightweight body that helps make for a faster arrow. Compound bow: typical hunter’s bow that can be drawn for extended periods of time through a system of cams, pulleys and wheels. Crossbow: with this bow one can lock the bolt, or string, at full draw and simply pull the trigger when ready. How To keep score According to teacharchery.com, a 10-ring target is usually what archers are aiming at in competitive events. “The 1st and 2nd outermost rings are white in color. The 3rd and 4th rings that are working inward are black in color. The 5th and 6th rings are blue in color. The 7th and 8th

rings are red and the other two innermost rings, together with the bull’seye, look like gold in their color. “Put two archers at every target. The archers are able to keep their score or you may allocate judges to every target. If the contest is held in the house, every archer shoots 3 arrows in 2 minutes. If the contest is held in the open air, every archer shoots 6 arrows in 4 minutes. Make use of arrow shafts of different colored for every archer at a target. Sum up every archer’s score, dependent on where the arrows touched on the target. The white ring, which is the outermost, is valued one point. Every successive ring as you work on the way to the bull’s-eye adds a point. For instance, an arrow touching in the primary blue ring is valued 5 points and an arrow touching in the 2nd blue ring is valued 6 points. Arrows which touch on the line between two rings are provided the superior score.” wHy iT’s addicTive Reading up on archery, I found words like “relaxing,” “zen” and “therapy” used frequently to describe what archers feel when they line up, aim and fire their bows and arrows. The Fort Worth Star Telegram ran a story about archery recently and this is how the writer summed it up: “It demands total focus. It forces you to block out the collateral noise and clutter in your daily life and concentrate on one sharply defined and attainable goal.” I may just have to try it. My favorite part of my daughter’s new sport? It’s (often) done inside in the air c ond it i on i ng . In Texas, that feature hits the bull’s-eye every time.

It was my first breed champion to exhibit there, as well, so there was more than one exciting moment that week! Least favorite show day task: Breaking down, because no matter how hard I try I always ruin at least one article of clothing! Most embarrassing stock show moment: When I was younger I had a major problem of spraying other people with the water hose on the wash rack, and that was always embarrassing. Luckily I haven’t had too many horribly embarrassing moments.

Business Minded

Need More Money? Five Moves to Consider Regardless of whatever else may await you in life, saving for the future could be one of your biggest financial challenges. That’s why it’s important to take steps now to make sure you’ll have enough money on hand for retirement, family goals or unanticipated financial emergencies. A common question financial planners hear from clients is, “How can I save more than I’m saving now?” Fortunately, there are several ways you can accomplish that goal with a bit of professional help. Consider the following:

ment plan, consider increasing your contribution by an additional 1% or 2% of income. Even if you think that may be too much, try it out for a few months. The extra effort could make a big difference down the road: Contributing even $20 extra each week could provide you with an additional $87,493 after 30 years (before taxes), assuming 6% annual investment returns.2 use windfalls wisely. While it may be tempting to spend a windfall – such as an inheritance or workplace bonus – on something fun, it’s probably a better idea to use the money to enhance your long-term financial standing. For example, assuming you invest a $2,000 windfall in an account earning a 6% annual rate of return, it could grow to $2,698 after 5 years, $6,620 after 20 years or $12,045 after 30 years (before taxes).2 A Financial Advisor can help you implement effective strategies for reducing expenses and set up customized savings and investment plans to help pursue your goals.

Monitor expenses. Lowering your expenses by a modest amount, such as 1%, could allow you to boost your savings initiatives as much as a comparable increase in pay. To gain insights into your current spending habits, consider downloading a budgeting app for your smart phone. They’re much easier to use than they used to be and make expense tracking very simple. For example, many apps allow you to record your income and spending on the go, incorporating information from various accounts, in order to have an up-to-the-minute overview of your fiContributing even $20 extra each nancial standing each day. You can then look week could provide you with an for inefficiencies – and ways to economize.

reduce credit card expenses. On average, each US household with credit card debt owes a balance of more than $15,000.1 You can eliminate such debt faster – and start saving more – by paying more than the minimum monthly amount on your credit cards each month. For example, assume you have a $1,000 credit card debt with a 12% interest rate. By paying $20 each month, it would take 67 months to eliminate the debt and would cost you $353.43 in interest. But by doubling your monthly payment to $40, you would be out of debt in just 27 months. Your interest costs would be less than half – $103.28. Then, when you finish paying off your balance, redirect the money you’d been spending on debt each month to a savings or investment account. Another way to tackle debt expenses aggressively is by consolidating credit card balances to a single, lower-rate card. Comparison shop for the best rates, but beware of “teaser” rates that start low then jump higher after an initial introductory period ends. Boost contriButions.

A Grandfather’s Gift

Leads toforBig-Time Success Kris BlacK & family By Martha Hollida Garrett

A grandfather’s gift of a Hereford heifer to a six-year-old little boy almost five decades ago made a big difference in his life and continues to impact the lives of hundreds of other youth. That one heifer would start that little boy on a career path in the cattle business and the development of a program that would result in hundreds of championships for youth at stock shows across the country. Kris Black was that little boy, and Black Hereford Ranch, Crawford, Oklahoma, is that breeding program. Today Black is recognized as one of the leading club calf producers in the nation and calves from the ranch have won every major steer show in Texas numerous times, along with hundreds of breed championships on a state level and more county and jackpot wins than anyone knows. “My grandfather, Frank “Shorty” Gilliland, raised Herefords, and when I was in first grade he gave me a Hereford heifer. I grew up in Groom, Texas, just east of Amarillo, but I spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s ranch, which was a couple of hours away. By the time I graduated

from high school, my herd had grown to 12 Hereford females, and they all traced back to that original heifer,” explains Black. In addition to his grandparents, his high school ag teacher, Charles “Buck” Burk, heavily influenced Black. Burk would introduce Black to the show ring and by doing so, sparked an interest in breeding club calves that continues to be a driving force for him. “I started showing pigs and even raised show pigs as a business in high school. I also showed Hereford heifers and steers. Charles really taught me a lot about the club calf industry, as he was involved with

“I like good cattle of any color.” the Chi breed, and he opened my eyes to another segment of the cattle business,” recalls Black. After Black graduated from high school in 1978, two events transpired that would

258 September/October 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

changed Black’s life and put his career in motion. His grandfather would have a stroke the summer following graduation, and he moved to the ranch, which was homesteaded by his great-grandfather. He would also meet and marry Gay Meyers, who came from a family heavily involved in the club calf industry. She and her siblings showed many champions, and she was used to having 20 steers in the barn to care for and show. “I met Gay at the Golden Spread Classic Steer Show, and we’ve been married 25 years,” says Black adding that their 20-year-old daughter, Phylli, who is an avid rodeo competitor and college student, joins them in the family business. Together, the couple would take over running the family Hereford business and also began buying and selling club calves. The rest you could say is history – a history documented by banners and titles. The program has produced 11 different individuals that have won either the grand or the reserve grand champion


Black Hereford Ranch is recognized for their bull and females sales just as much as the steer sales. Bulls like these are marketed in October annually.

Black is always working and always on the phone.

Hoo Doo Phylli is one of the most famous donor dams from the program. She is the dam of Yellow Jacket. Phylli is also representative of Black’s pioneer move to introduce purebred Charolais into the club calf producing business. Phylli was one of the first Hoo Doo females that Black brought to the breeding program.

steer title at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, plus it can claim a grand or reserve steer(s) at San Antonio, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Austin, San Angelo and the Rio Grande Valley livestock shows. Then there’s also the breed champion titles that have been won by Black-bred steers. “We’ve had hundreds of breed champions over the years, and I’ve lost count of how many titles on the county and regional level,” he adds. Today, Black Hereford Ranch still includes Herefords, but the 600-plus cowherd also has Charolais, Angus, MaineAnjou, Shorthorn and Simmental genetics, as well as some Brangus-cross females. “I like good cattle of any color,” emphasizes Black, adding that it’s their Charolais genetics that really put them on the map. Black has invested heavily in Charolais cattle from Wyoming’s legendary Hoo Doo Ranch, and the herd now includes about 150 straight-bred Hoo Doo females. “I handpicked females out of their herd for about 10 years. Some I would keep, but

most I would sell as bred females in our June sale. Many of these females produced steers that won steer shows. We also purchased Hoo Doo-bred bulls, and we have a set group of these females that we are breeding to those bulls to keep the Hoo Doo line pure,” he stresses. Black is recognized as a pioneer in reintroducing purebred Charolais genetics into the club calf business, and the influence of Charolais genetics on major show-winning steers continues to escalate and, by most standards, is considered the dominant breed in steer production for the South today. Their program is largely AI-based, and between their females and the females the operation sells as breds, they will AI close to 1,000 head annually. They also do embryo transfer on about 30 of their best females, plus some limited in vitro fertilization. They have also utilized cloning, as they have cloned their famous Charolais club calf sire, Yellow Jacket and his mother Hoo Doo Phylli.

In club calf circles, when you mention Black Hereford Ranch, industry-leading sires like Magic, Habanero, Lifeline, Yellow Jacket, Troubadour, Made Right, George, Carpe Diem, Polar Ice and Blanco and their resulting progeny, along with countless banners come to mind. While their program does include breeding of some purebreds, the majority of the cattle are bred for the club calf industry. Annually, Black Hereford Ranch markets about 150 steers from their program, along with about 300 bred females, 50 cows and 100 bulls. In addition, Black markets steers for other breeders, most of which have Black breeding. Plus they market semen on many of their club calf sires. They have had one to two steer sales a year in Texas for the past 21 years. “All of our sales have the tagline “Cream of the Crop”, and that’s become a big part of the ranch’s recognition,” explains Black, adding that they pride themselves on repeat customers and selling only the best. Also they’ve now been in the business long


Yellow Jacket was the first 50% Charolais or Charolais x Maine cross sire to have tremendous success. He has sired both winning steers and females. He was key to re-introducing Charolais breeding into the club calf world.

enough that they are selling to the second generation of some families. He is adamant in his belief that there is not a better learning experience than a good 4-H/FFA cattle project. Cattle projects teach “good work ethic, responsibility and discipline and is one of the best familyoriented activities there is,” he adds. Their Cream of the Crop Sale is held at the ranch the first Saturday of June annually, and 2012 was the 11th year for this premier event. It featured 340 head of elite fall-bred heifers and donor prospects, 60 fall-bred young mature cows and 20 herd sire prospects. All of these were bred and marketed to produce club calves. The 2012 sale saw bidders pay an average of over $4,000 overall. Every October, the Black’s host their Fall Bull Sale at the ranch, which features 80 to 100 powerful breeding age club calf bulls. This year’s sale will be October 27th. “Kris is perhaps one of, if not the most, successful programs, as far as creating and establishing cow families within a composite herd. The lines of cattle that he has created transcend time; they are just as influential today as they were in the beginning. I’ve always admired the program because it has developed and grown based on one man’s opinion of good cattle, not trend, and that opinion has rarely changed since he started in the early ’80s,” describes Christy Collins, who manages the two sales at the ranch for Black. In March, a steer sale is held in Salado, Texas, that coincides when exhibitors and

families are traveling home from the Houston Livestock Show. It features 50 steers and heifers that are the “cream of the crop” from Black Hereford Ranch. In April, another 50 steers are sold at the Just Right For The Valley Sale near Laredo with Raul and Eddie Martinez’s 5M Ranch. Plus during the spring months, they market about 150 steers at the ranch, along with a few show heifers. These steers are all fall-born and are weaned at four and half months of age to coincide with the big shows in Texas and Oklahoma. For the next two months, they are halter broke, clipped and prepared for the sales. “Not all of these are from our ranch, but most are our genetics. During March and April, we have a lot of traffic through the ranch, and for a month before the June sale, lots of folks stop in to view the sale offering. I would estimate that 90% of our steer buyers are from Texas and 70% of our bred females and bulls probably go to Texas, but at our June sale, we had buyers from 15 states,” he says. Black doesn’t miss the Denver, Fort Worth and Houston shows, but with the number of cattle in the program, looking at other people’s steers to market and four sales a year, his travel time is limited. Plus there’s the 900 acres they farm for hay, so there’s always a lot to get done every day of

the year. Speaking of getting things done, all of this is done by the Blacks—Kris, Gay and Phylli, plus their manager, Tim Voboril. They do hire some extra help to halter break and clip all the steers before the spring sales. “I’m very lucky to have Tim. He is invaluable to us because of his knowledge, work ethic and his understanding of the segments of the cattle industry we operate. Gay handles all the office work, semen orders and keeps us on track. She had far more experience in the steer business than me when we started, and I couldn’t have done this without her. Phyll, has always loved rodeo and that requires a lot of practice and travel, but she helps with the dayto-day operations around her schedule,” he explains. Black, who by anyone’s account that knows him would easily be described as a workaholic, says, “If I didn’t have to stop and sleep, I could get more done.” Black Hereford Ranch is a testament to hard work, forward thinking and steadfast devotion to an industry and a vision. What Black and his family have done is impressive; not just in terms of banners and titles, but in the quality of cattle produced, the number of customers who utilize their genetics and the respect they have in the business.

Oklahoma Club Calf Association - Sept 2012

What a summer! Jr. Nationals are over, and it’s time to start school. Here in Oklahoma, and in most of the country, another drought; please pray for rain! I know too many cattlemen losing everything like nothing I have ever witnessed in my life. State fairs have started, and I know the young people are working extra hard to get the cattle ready. Since my kids are grown, I decided to take in a young high school girl that has never shown and help her get ready for fall. Becca and her steer moved in my barn and the work started. The young lady is a hard worker, and it is fun watching her and the steer improve everyday. One evening while working on showmanship, she told my wife she had set him up so many times she was going to wear out her new show stick before her first show. LaMecia giggled and said, “You will be glad you worked so hard.” She is a good girl and I know her parents and Ag teachers will be proud. That is what the OCCA is all about: hard work, great young people and proud parents! Good Luck at the state fairs and be safe.

This column is the sixth in a series exploring careers that our young readers might be interested in pursuing, through the eyes and experiences of successful people in a variety of professions.

Kelli Ludlum - Director, Congressional Relations at American Farm Bureau Federation SC: What is your background – were you raised on a farm or ranch? I was raised on a diverse fourth generation southeast Kansas farm. We produce wheat, soybeans, corn, grain sorghum, hay and commercial cattle. My sister and I were both active in many youth organizations, like FFA and 4-H, and we showed cattle and hogs. SC: Would you describe for us what you really do (sometimes job titles aren’t reflective of the actual work): My job is to represent the interests of our farmer and rancher members in the national policy process. That means I’m essentially their voice with Congress and Federal agencies, so that they can influence laws and regulations that affect their farms and ranches while they’re actually out doing the hard daily work of producing food and fiber. Politics are part of the job, but trying to find the best possible solutions to the problems that farmers and ranchers face – with decision-makers on both sides of the aisle, Democrats and Republicans alike – is how I spend most of my time. Building strong working relationships through communication and sharing information with Members of Congress and their staff, and officials at the Department of Agriculture, is the key to being successful in accomplishing our members’ policy objectives. SC: How did you get into this line of work? After graduating from Kansas State University, I accepted a position as a county extension agent working with 4-H and Youth programs. I loved that job, but also had an interest in agriculture policy stemming from internships with the Kansas Livestock Association and a state agency at college, and from a college course I’d taken my sophomore year with one of my favorite professors, Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh. It was Dr. Flinchbaugh who gave my name and phone number to then-Congressman Jerry Moran, who had a position open for an agriculture assistant. The Congressman’s aide called me just six months after I’d started in Extension and, after one interview, offered me the job in Washington, DC. I took it, and have been working in agriculture policy ever since. I spent three years working for Congressman Moran and a year on staff with the House of Representatives Agriculture Committee before coming to Farm Bureau to focus on livestock issues. SC: What do you like about your job? The best part of my job is educating decision-makers about production agriculture. It’s rewarding to be able to advocate for our members’ policy

A PoliticAl lobbyist positions that can ultimately help them do their jobs better, and hopefully a little easier. Farmers and ranchers are some of the hardest-working, friendliest people I know, and representing them as they feed, clothe and fuel the world is about as good as it gets. SC: What are the toughest challenges for what you do? The toughest challenge in my job is explaining what really happens on farms and ranches to people whose only exposure to agriculture is with the final product at the grocery store. Agriculture is complex, and a lot of what we do today is very different from the public’s perceptions of agriculture that may have been formed through pictures of big red barns or movies like “Babe.” To help people understand modern agriculture, we try to connect it to things with which they may be more familiar, like small businesses or manufacturing enterprises. Sometimes, we also have to overcome negative portrayals of agriculture that have been built up by media misinformation, activist campaigns, and books like “Food, Inc.” Our farmer and rancher member families are most helpful in those efforts as they’re able to tell their own stories about what they really do and why they do it. SC: Do you need a college degree in your profession? A college degree is definitely a necessity in my profession. The exact field or major is less important than the broad skills that are developed in a collegiate experience, such as communication, leadership, organization and time management. Many of those traits come from activities outside the classroom, as well as through the formal degree. Many people in government relations have degrees in political science, economics, or professional degrees in law or business administration. However, there is no set formula for a formal educational path. My degree is in animal science and the “soft” skills I learned from my courses and professors, things like decision-making and being able to explain those decisions, are just as critical as the technical information I learned – especially since I’m in a more non-traditional field than many animal scientists! SC: What is a typical day on the job like for you? No two days are the same, which is a challenge I enjoy! The pace is fast, and multi-tasking is a must. The majority of my time is spent communicating with people – in meetings, on the phone, and through written correspondence.


SC: What would most surprise a high school or college student about your career? The biggest surprise for a student, particularly in high school, is probably the fact that there are so many agricultural opportunities in the realm of government relations. Not many students dream of being a lobbyist when they grow up, but it’s really no different than an educational field – with a little bit of an influencing twist! SC: Anything you wish someone would have told you when you were in school? The two best pieces of advice I received in high school and college were to take advantage of opportunities outside the classroom and to do internships. Through extracurricular activities from sports, to judging, to school and campus organizations, I learned life skills like teamwork and cooperation. Internships allowed me to figure out the types of careers in which I was interested and, just as important, helped rule out some that weren’t as natural a fit as I originally thought they would be.

SC Editor’S NotE:

In our August issue, we mistakenly identified the 5th overall heifer exhibitor at the Shorthorn Junior National Show. The exhibitor was Jake Nikkel of McPherson, Kan., whose Reserve Champion Division 5 winner took the 5th overall honor.

Professor To Producer

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

The Drought of 2012 and Mycotoxin Contamination

As if the drought of 2012 could not get any worse for livestock producers – given low corn and soybean yields, high shelled corn prices, record soybean meal costs, high nitrate corn silage, dry pastures, short hay yields, reduced ability to purchase some alternative feeds such as corn gluten, distillers grains and soy hulls, and too many open cows – producers now should be concerned about the presence of mycotoxin in shelled corn and corn silage.

and mycotoxins, expect the corn silage to contain mycotoxins. The ensiling process does not destroy the mycotoxins. Therefore, producers should test the chopped corn silage for mycotoxin concentration. Aflatoxin is perhaps the mycotoxin of greatest concern because it represents a risk to humans as well as animal health. Because aflatoxin can accumulate in the meat, this is a public health issue that cannot be ignored. Feed for market pigs cannot contain more than 20 parts per billion (ppb) of aflatoxin in order to remove risk What are mycotoxins? to the final pork product. Mycotoxins in corn are produced by certain molds that infect Vomitoxin or DON (deoxynivalenol) causes reduced feed inthe ears of corn. Molds may be present without the production take and decreased weight gain when present in the feed at 1-3 of mycotoxins, but mycotoxins cannot be produced in absence of parts per million (ppm), with younger pigs being most suscepmolds. The mycotoxins of greatest interest to pork producers and, tible. Cattle and poultry can tolerate much higher levels of DON to a lesser degree cattle producers, are allatoxin, deoxynivalenol than pigs. DON is often found in association with another myco(also known as vomitoxin or DON), fumonisin, zearalenone and toxin, zearalenone, because both are produced by the same mold. occasionally ochratoxin and T-2 toxin. A number of ear rots are Fumonisins comprise a family of mycotoxins in which horses capable of producing mycotoxin-producing molds. These include and donkeys are most susceptible.

Milk producers face a unique challenge. In addition to safeguarding the health of their herd animals, they must be concerned about staying within the federal tolerance of no more than 0.5 parts per billion (ppb) aflatoxin in milk. That will require more stringent attention to ratio composition. The summer drought has resulted in a greater incidence than usual of aflatoxin in corn fields this fall. Diluting aflatoxin corn with clean corn or other grains is one option to consider when feeding it to any species of livestock. Also, pay close attention to handling of grain. Dry the corn down as quickly as possible to no more than 13%14% moisture to halt the spread of aflatoxin. Don’t let corn set in a wagon overnight. Higher moisture corn heats and produces an environment for mold growth. Corn with aflatoxin up to 100 ppb can probably be fed safely to most beef animals. But that is the upper limit for young and pregnant cattle. Older finishing cattle can tolerate higher levels of aflatoxin. But growth performance declines and threats to health increase as the level approaches 600 ppb. Do not feed corn with aflatoxin levels above 50 ppb to pigs weighing less than 50 pounds or to lactating sows. Gestating sows and boars should be able to tolerate levels of up to 100 ppb. Heavier finishing hogs may be able to withstand aflatoxin levels approaching 300 ppb, but make sure gilts kept as herd replacements are not being fed corn at those levels. One percent of aflatoxin in the total dairy ration may find its way into the milk. So, to avoid violating the 0.5 ppb residue violation in milk, the total ration cannot contain more than 50 ppb. If the ration is half aflatoxin free forage, the other half of the ration in corn could conceivably contain up to 100 ppb. However, in this instance, the farmer is cutting it close, leaving little margin of safety. If a producer suspects aflatoxin through either the black light or quick test, he/she should obtain a quantitive reading on the corn. From two to four days are required for aflatoxin to pass through a milk cow’s digestive system. As with beef animals, young dairy calves are susceptible to harmful effects at lower levels. The safest solution is to feed aflatoxin corn to open heifers or older beef animals and not to milk cows. Remember, grain with a concentration of aflatoxin higher than 20 ppb is barred from interstate or export trade. Grain and corn silage can be screened for a qualitative analysis (presence or absence) using a “black light test for aflatoxin but not all mycotoxins will show up under ultra-violet light. Producers feeding questionable grain or silage should send feed samples to a commercial or government testing laboratory. For more information about Aspergillus ear rot, aflatoxin and other corn-ear molds and mycotoxins, the Plant Management Network’s Focus on Corn section has an online presentation by Charles Woloshuk of Purdue University at http://bit.ly/RlmtmH. Also, John Patience, Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University and Steve Ensley, ISU Department of Veterinary Diagnostics have written an excellent review of mycotoxin contamination of corn, http://www.ipic.iastate.edu/publications/IPIC12.pdf.

Meet Sharla!

If you’ve run an ad in The Show Circuit the last couple months, chances are you’ve gotten to work with Sharla Ishmael on your ad production. Sharla joined our team in early 2012 as our editorial director, but has since expanded her role in the magazine. Many of you have probably spent some time either e-mailing or chatting on the phone with her about your fall advertising plans. Here’s some scoop on Sharla, in her own words!

You have a background in showing cattle yourself... can you tell our readers a little about your history?

I grew up on ranches in New Mexico and Texas. My family was in the purebred Charolais business (Shallow Creek Charolais). I showed Charolais heifers and all kinds of steers. My best year (I’m telling my age here) was 1987 when I won Charolais Junior Nationals for the first time and Champion Steer at the Arizona National. Because we were able to raise many of my heifers, I was much more successful on that side of the ring, but steers were my first love. The biggest honor for me was when different people that were super successful with their steers would ask me to show one of their breed champions in the grand drive because they appreciated my showmanship ability. I couldn’t afford to buy the best steers (I paid for all my livestock, feed, travel, etc. by myself), so showmanship and hard work is how I tried to make up for it.

Where did you go to college?

I went to school at Texas A&M and competed on the ‘91-‘92 livestock judging team. My degrees are in ag economics and agricultural development – never took any English classes or journalism classes – so it’s ironic that I ended up with a career in ag communications. While I was at A&M, my herd of about 20 Charolais cows came with me. I leased a couple of pastures and tried to take care of them, judge and go to school. When I would back my little Oldsmobile up to the dock at the co-op for a load of feed, I sure got some funny looks! The last straw on that situation was having to defend why I was out in the middle of the night checking on calving cows to the landowner’s brother (who moved in after I leased the place). Evidently it made his dogs bark, and he didn’t like that. I had some choice thoughts about him and his dogs and shortly afterwards leased my cows to another breeder for the remainder of college.

mom now. The other thing that might surprise some of our advertisers is that I don’t design any ads. Our clients are so good to express the appreciation for the quality of the ads we design – but all that credit goes to Amber, Catherine, Carrie, Laci, Barb and some other talented ladies from time to time. I am just the middleman.

What’s your favorite stockshow, and why?

Fort Worth! I’ve shown on the green shavings in Louisville and the Astroturf in Houston and everywhere in between. But there is nothing like the steer show at Fort Worth. Plus, one of my very best memories from the show ring happened there when my little sister Carrie won the steer show in 1997. It was amazing! I don’t even think wining the lottery would have felt better for our whole family.

Do you have any good stock show stories?

No – my parents were too strict for me to have any good stories! That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Your fondest show memory?

There are so many, of course, but the second time I won Charolais Junior Nationals was with a heifer I raised out of my very first heifer – a bottle baby named Cinderella that I trained to ride with a hackamore when I was about 7. Fast–forward to my sophomore year in college and Cinderella’s daughter won the show and bred and owned. It was a really cool way to end my show career!

How did your career path lead you to The Show Circuit?

The biggest lesson you learned?

I had worked for The Cattleman magazine for several years and then spent about a decade working at home as a freelancer as we started our family. Last year, Roland was looking for someone to help take SC’s editorial to the next level. It was a natural fit, and I’ve really enjoyed getting back into this part of the business. Now that I’m working on the advertising and production side of the magazine as well, it kind of brings me back full circle to when I used to run my own ads in the Charolais Journal and help my folks come up with ideas for their ads. We always took that very seriously, looking for new ways to draw attention to our ads.

The people you meet and the relationships you build will last much longer and mean more to you than the biggest trophies and buckles. Also, even when you are very young there are ALWAYS people watching you – how you go about your business – that might someday be in a position to help you get a job, or not!

What’s your number one tip you’d like to give our advertisers that you think is important to their success?

day’s junior exhibitors?

From a practical standpoint, whether you’re going to run an ad once a year or every month, take control of your photos and logos. If a steer or heifer you sold won a big show and you know that you’ll want the photo in your ad, go ahead and buy a high-resolution copy from the photographer. You don’t want to be waiting for photos at the last minute of your deadline. And know that you absolutely cannot use photos from a website or Facebook in a magazine ad. Those are low resolution and come out blurry or pixilated in print. From a marketing standpoint, take time every now and then to study other breeders’ ads in the magazines you advertise in. What makes one ad stand out more than another? Does one or two big, good photos capture your eye better than 10 small photos on a page? What type of color is overused? What can you do to make somebody flipping the page stop and look at your ad? A good ad doesn’t tell your life story; it gets attention and makes one, clear, compelling point that people can remember.

What’s something you think our readers would be surprised to find out about you? If anyone remembers me from “the good old days,” they would probably be surprised that I’m a honest-to-goodness, minivan-driving, suburban soccer

Yep, that’s me rocking the wranglers and ’80s hair. We didn’t have our usual humor column to run this month with Brad Hook, so I decided to provide some entertainment for our younger female showmen whose fashion sense has definitely changed What’s your best piece of advice for to- since my day.

Enjoy every moment! Don’t let the outcome of the show or somebody else’s reaction to how you placed steal your joy of the sport. Another trend from the past – this show heifer I was holding at a show in Tucson, Arizona, had just come from the ring. Notice her head isn’t shaved, she has a great big old topknot and the lovely ginormous leather halter. Fitting has come as far as fashion in the show ring since the 1970s when this photo would have been taken. I was about 7, and was completely humiliated after this show when an AP photographer snapped a picture of me that went nationwide. I was tired of the bystanders bothering me (talking to me) while I was trying to read or play a game on the showbox, so I took my dad’s vest and put it over my head – looked like such a dork! People from all over the country cut out the photo from their hometown papers and sent it to me. Remember – I told you somebody is always watching you out there. Somehow those photos got lost……
