VITA HAIR™ is an advanced nutrient package that infuses the hair with proven hair vitamins for ...

• Faster Hair Growth • Thicker Hair • Increased Shine • More Body & Volume • Healthier Skin • Improved Nutrient Absorption

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

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

It is always great to have a product where the last bag is as good as the first. In addition, there is no other hair supplement like FLAIR®.

View video of American Pride at www.janssenfarms.com 0987X OF MSF

“A picture tells a thousand words. We’ve owned some of the Simmental breeds greatest sires, but we believe with all our hearts that JF American Pride 0987X is the most special animal we have ever had the chance to be a part of, it is as simple as that. We’re not selling “semen packages” or have any marketing gimmicks on this bull, just straight up selling semen to help better our breed and the cattle industry. Please take time to view the video and discover he is the soundest made, biggest bellied, most attractive Purebred Simmental ever to walk. His performance and eye appeal set him a part, we welcome your calls to discuss American Pride. We would like to give a special thanks to Jack McCoy of Meadow Springs Farm, Lafayette, Indiana for selling us this remarkable bull and his powerful dam and to Jeff Miller, Cutler, Indiana for pointing us in his direction!”

Calf Climate Severe Duty Window-Type Cooler Units The ULTIMATE Machine for your Cool Room! The only cooler unit specifically designed to withstand the unique, harsh conditions found in cool rooms.

FACT:

Regular Air Conditioners and refrigeration units are made for use in a clean environment. They were never meant to handle the dirt, hair, ammonia, acid, and continuous duty cycles that machines used in cool rooms must endure. In just a few years, the raw aluminum coils susceptible to ammonia and acid in the air start to look like this:

The continuous duty cycles necessitated by the heat load of the animals and fans burns up the compressors in a fraction of their normal life span. And let’s not even get started on how expensive and difficult it is to install a split unit refrigeration system. Even when it’s finally installed, your coil will be hanging from the ceiling, taking up precious room space.

Enter the Calf Climate TZ-WU Series--offering an unprecedented set of features that leave the competition feeling the heat: • Stops the dirt, hair, and debris from getting into the machine in the first place with large heavy duty triple layer aluminum filters that can be hosed out quickly and easily.

• High speed, high CFM fans to provide greater cool down power, and high air turnover rates. Optional nozzle kits can be added to direct cold air where you need it!

• On the inside, the critical components are coated with epoxy to prevent dirt from sticking, and to prevent corrosion from ammonia and acid in the air.

• Can be installed remotely in circumstances where it is impossible to go thru-the-wall by connecting optional ducting and piping the air where you need it.

Calf Climate TZ-WU Severe Duty Window Units come in 1-6 ton sizes with different options depending on your goals.

• A heavy duty scroll type compressor that offers the ultimate in long term reliability and energy efficiency.

• TZ-WU units offer the ultimate in peace-ofmind for those that can’t constantly babysit their cool rooms.

Please call or email Matt Rohrbach at 217.417.7784 or matt@calfclimate.com for a personalized quote!

• Easy to install so the owner can quickly and easily set the unit themselves in a convenient thru-the-wall fashion.

• These units have been engineered to be the best solution for your conditions. Nothing else even comes close!

• Capable of temperatures in the 30’s, without the hassle of traditional refrigeration equipment, which means any air conditioning tech can service them.

• Fully Programmable Digital Thermostat can turn the machine on and off so you won’t need to go start it up an hour before tie-in, etc.

• Uses heavy duty components proven to stand the test of time in severe conditions.

the buzz outside the barn If you would like to contribute to our Entertainment Review section or have book/movie/tv/ music suggestions for us, please drop a note to Sharla at sharla@theshowcircuit.com

give a listen John Hiatt

John Hiatt is one reason the too-often, me-too world of popular music has reason for hope. The iconic singer-songwriter—an Indiana native and long-time Tennessee resident—continues churning out thought-provoking, soul-tapping standards. Consider Down Around My Place from his most recent album, “Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns.” It’s an unapologetic lament to the vagaries of unwanted change. “…These hunting grounds were hallowed, down around my place In a prelude to singing the song at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last SepExhausted fields lay fallow, down around my place tember, Hiatt explained he wrote it as he pondered the devastating flood there and in Kingdoms come and crumble, down around my place surrounding areas two years ago. As with many of his lyrics, though, listen close and My prayers are merely mumbles, down around my place…” you can peel back layers of meaning. He’s one of those rare individuals who can capture the world with just a few words. In the song, Hiatt’s vocals range between anguished cry and defiant growl, backed by a bluesy, ethereal musical background. It’s even more captivating to watch Hiatt sing the song as he did last year as the guest of blues guitar genius, Joe Bonamassa, during the latter’s Beacon Theatre performance. Highlights from that show, including the full version of Hiatt and Down Around My Place have aired on PBS stations the last couple of months. If you’re just starting with Hiatt, also try another fairly recent addition to his library, “The Open Road,” which includes the laid-back, Fireball Roberts: “…Got a ‘57 Ford baby Painted Fireball Roberts white and red. I haven’t run my last race darlin’ But I sometimes wish I did…”

You’ll find plenty of Hiatt’s greatest hits and wry And ends with: observation across the years, sung by him and “…just when you think that you’ve been gypped also covered by a who’s-who of music superstars, the bearded lady comes and does a double back-flip ranging from Conway Twitty to Three Dog Night. and you run off and join the circus Perhaps one of his most popular songs is Buffalo yeah, you just let that pony ride…” River Home, from 1993’s “Perfectly Good Guitar.” It includes this memorable chorus: This is the kind of stuff Hiatt has consistently done during a professional career spanning al“…mixing up drinks with mixed feelings most four decades. all along the paint was peeling down to an Indian blanket on a pony Special thanks to Wes Ishmael (our editorial diwith no rider in the flesh and bone rector’s dear husband) for contributing this music looking for his buffalo river home…” review. Guest reviews of all media are welcome!

worth a read For all the graduates in coming weeks, be they high school graduates ready to jump into the work world straight away or college graduates hoping to reap the benefits of their newly minted diplomas, we chose to review a book that may help you secure that which has never been more precious – a J-OB. For that matter, this book can help people of any age or background find a new job, or even a new career, if they’re willing to do the groundwork necessary in today’s tough job market. “What Color is Your Parachute,” now in its 40th edition, has been labeled “the gold standard of career guides” by no less than Fortune magazine. Author Richard Bolles publishes an update every year of his best tips and resources for figuring out what occupation you have passion and skills for, how to find job opportunities within that occupation, how to ask and answer interview questions and much, much more. Any of the recent editions will be helpful, though the 2012 book is available. Some of what Bolles has to offer may really surprise you. For instance,

264 May 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

he cites studies that show 90 percent of job-hunters who use the Internet to find jobs are not successful. Why? Well for one thing he explains, “Many, if not most, employers hunt for job-hunters in the exact opposite way from how most job-hunters hunt for them.” He also points out the power of persistence: “Researchers say the typical job hunt lasts 15-19 weeks. But, depending on the economy, one-third to one-half of job-hunters give up by the second month of the job hunt.” You’ll find useful tips on leveraging your contacts – family, friends, hair stylist, etc. – to find and obtain a job. “It takes about 80 pairs of eyes and ears to help find the career, the workplace, the job that you are looking for,” he writes. Learning how to uncover your interests and abilities has long been a strength of the “Parachute” books. Bolles has worksheets for you to fill out and penetrating questions to consider. He offers websites to help figure out your vocational matches, such as www.truecolorscareer.com/quiz.asp. You might discover that you’ve never really thought very hard about who you are and what you like. Finally, he offers this advice that all young people should take to heart. “Don’t go get a college degree in some career field because you think that will guarantee a job! It won’t.”


what you’ll find

• The most helpful job sites on the web. • The five best and worst ways to look for a job. • Valuable research regarding when people are most/least likely to get hired in an interview. (For example, job-hunters that keep their answers to between 20 seconds and 2 minutes are most likely to get hired.) • Rankings on which methods of job search tend to be most successful. • The truth about resumes. • The 10 greatest mistakes made in interviews. • Great tips on salary negotiation and research. • Special sections on how to start your own business, job hunting at 50-plus, how to incorporate social media and more. • List of 246 skills as verbs – useful for self-inventory, resumes, cover letter and interviews. • The only five questions that really matter in a job interview. • Questions you should always ask in an interview, whether directly or subtly.

Showmanship Points by Division Oklahoma Club Calf Association - April 2012

What a strange spring we have had in Oklahoma! As of this writing, we have already had two days of 100-degree temps. It is way too early for that, but the grass is green and water is in the ponds. We are blessed. OYE has just finished and while I was there, every time a class left the ring an OCCA member was in the lead. Congratulations to all the winners, and OCCA members, you did great! When you read this, the Beef Expo will be over. I am sure it will go great with the leadership of Susan Gebhart and Vinnie Blakley in charge of the show. Thank you for all you do and to all the volunteers that help make it a great one! The banquet Saturday night looks like it is ready to go! Rhonda Elizondo and Billie Chrz have been making plans for months. Their hard work is always appreciated, and we thank you. We want to congratulate all of this year’s point winners. You went a lot of miles, worked hard and now it paid off. Congratulations!! Thanks again to our Platinum sponsors – CM Trailers, Purina, Curel Girl and Cinch. Also thanks to our Gold Sponsors – Multimin, VitaFerm, Kent and Winning Edge. Without you we could not do this. Thank you. Good luck at the upcoming shows and be careful.

hree Reasons to Convert to a Roth IRA

Business Minded

This tax season, re-examine your retirement income strategy. You can create a balance between taxable and tax-free income by including a Roth IRA in your portfolio. With a Roth IRA, your retirement assets enjoy tax-deferred growth potential, with the goal of creating tax-free income for your retirement – and a tax-free inheritance for your heirs. Amid political uncertainty, economic volatility and looming tax changes, 2012 may be the optimal time to consider converting some of your assets to a Roth IRA. While income limits may preclude some investors from contributing to a Roth IRA, anyone can convert funds from a Traditional IRA or employer-sponsored retirement plan to a Roth IRA. When you convert funds to a Roth IRA, you pay taxes on the amount converted as ordinary income for that year, rather than when you withdraw the funds in retirement. Because tax cuts initiated by President George W. Bush are scheduled to expire at the end of 2012, this year could be the best time to convert some of your assets—under today’s lower tax rates—into a Roth IRA, where they will never be taxed again. Also, a Roth conversion isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. You don’t have to convert all the funds in your Traditional IRA or employer-sponsored plan. Work with your accountant to determine the amount on which you can comfortably pay taxes when you consider a conversion. If you go ahead with a Roth conversion during 2012* but ultimately determine that it isn’t the right move for you, you can reverse it with a “Roth recharacterization” as late as Oct. 15, 2013. Three Reasons to Consider Roth in 2012 1. Tax concerns—You’re concerned about the likelihood of paying higher taxes next year, when the Bush tax cuts are scheduled to expire. The tax cuts initiated by the Bush administration are scheduled to expire at the end of 2012, and significant tax hikes are expected to take effect in 2013. Income tax rates are expected to rise, with the top bracket jumping to 39.6% from 35%. The top rate on long-term capital gains is set to increase to 20% from 15%, while the tax on income from qualified dividends is slated to rise from 15% to ordinary income tax rates. High-income taxpayers’ investment income will also be subject to a new tax of 3.8% to fund the Medicare system. Even if the worst-case scenario doesn’t occur, lawmakers may not have much wiggle room given the growing deficit. In other words, it’s probably fair to assume that your tax bracket for 2012 could be the lowest for a while. If you’re concerned about the impact of future tax increases next year or you think that your tax liabilities may be higher in retirement, a Roth conversion in 2012 could result in lower taxes than a conversion after this year. 2. Optimistic outlook on the economy—You’re optimistic about the prospects for an economic recovery and feel that your retirement assets are going to rise in value. A conversion sooner rather than later means you’ll pay taxes on the lower values.

272 May 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

If you’re optimistic about the prospects for the economy’s recovery and expect that the assets in your Traditional IRA will increase in value as the year progresses, a Roth conversion now could be particularly beneficial. The taxes you’ll pay on the converted amount are based on the values of the investments when they are converted. If you feel that an investment’s value is on the rise, convert it now before it goes up and you’ll pay less in taxes as a result. Considering the likelihood of forthcoming tax hikes, the payoff of a Roth conversion this year could be significant over the long term. 3. Estate planning—You’re worried about your estate tax exposure and want to protect your heirs. A Roth IRA can be an effective wealth planning strategy that allows you to create a tax-free legacy for your heirs. With a Roth, there are no restrictions on when you must stop contributing and start taking withdrawals, so you can leave as much of your money in the account to benefit your heirs as you wish. Additionally, there’s the ancillary benefit of reducing estate tax exposure. With a Roth conversion, the funds you use to pay the taxes are removed from your estate, potentially lowering your estate taxes. This is especially important now because in 2013 the estate and gift taxes are set to rise to 55% from 35%. Perhaps the greatest benefit of a Roth conversion will be realized by your heirs. By taking advantage of a “stretch” IRA, they can continue to enjoy the tax-deferred growth potential and tax-free income benefits of your Roth IRA. Here’s how it works: The beneficiaries of your Roth IRA (other than your spouse) will be required to take minimum distributions annually after your death, but those distribution amounts will be calculated using a life-expectancy factor based on their own age, not your age. This allows more of the funds to remain in the account longer, continually reaping the benefits of tax-deferred growth potential. To help you decide whether a Roth conversion is a good idea for you, speak with your tax advisor and ask your financial advisor to prepare a customized Roth Conversion Analysis for you.

Deer Quest

In Search of a Triple Double on Deer If you can’t spend six months hunting trophy deer all over North America, at least you can read about it. Acclaimed outdoors writer Lance Stapleton chronicles his adventures chasing a “Deer Quest” upon early retirement that took him more than 20,000 miles in search of six different North American deer. Not just any deer, though. Stapleton adopted Boone and Crockett Club’s Award Program minimum typical scores as his target for each of the four species recognized by B&C, and their minimum 180 points for Rocky Mountain and desert mule deer (it doesn’t recognize desert mule deer as a separate subspecies). He writes that his biggest challenge – other than finding record booksetting bucks – was simply scheduling that much hunting into one season. With the help of guides, outfitters and booking agents, Stapleton got all six bucks and fell just short of his gross score goal of 845 points; he “only” came up with 828-2/8 points. His trophies from this once-in-a-lifetime trip included a nontypical Columbia Blacktail with double eyeguards on both sides, a 4x3 main frame and

a third main beam “that went on forever.” Official measurements scored the buck (found in the coastal mountains of northern California) at 1477/8 points. Stapleton also tagged a monster mule deer on Santa Rosa Island, northwest of Los Angeles, where the Kaibab strain of mule deer and the isolation of the island has produced bucks known for exceptionally wide, massive racks. He killed a 200-pound Sitka blacktail in Alaska on 9/11 and a 175-point desert mule deer in Sonora, Mexico as well as a 106-point Coues whitetail buck. He spent 22 days just hunting whitetails in Wyoming and Kansas. While many of today’s hunting books are written in a dry and technical how-to style, Stapleton aspires to the vibrant quality of magazine stories from his youth. He recalls racing his grandfather to the mailbox for the latest issue of “Outdoor Life,” “Field and Stream,” or “True.” “Authors of the ilk of Grancel Fitz plied their trade there, thrilling us ‘wannabes’ with their stories of captivating adventures. We dreamed of experiencing those adventures ourselves. The stories those authors spun helped create a generation of hunters with a thirst for adventure and a need to experience hunting in the far reaches of this earth. Many sportsmen and wildlife personnel today can trace their love for the outdoors, at least in part, by what they wrote, but also by the hunting legacy they left behind,” he writes. Whether you’re a veteran deer hunter or a wannabe, “Deer Quest” can stoke your hunting adventure fires, too. Even you’re not much of a reader you may like this book – each chapter showcases pictures of the magnificent bucks that Stapleton and his hunting companions tagged during his various trips from Alaska to Mexico. He also offers a chapter on gear, including a packing trip for a 5-day hunt under mild conditions and references for outfitters and guides.

Fertility challenges are frustrating and tiresome for any beef cattle breeder. Sometimes the causes are unknown, or solutions are not apparent. When breeders implement advanced reproductive technologies to progress the superior genetics of their herd, reproductive challenges should be observed and controlled carefully. Some breeds or individual bloodlines may even have a higher incidence of reproductive difficulty, and it is important for breeders to recognize the characteristics of these challenges so action can be taken to help improve the fertility of the herd. Family Lines Assorted breed influences are a common cause for fertility variation. These challenges are sometimes magnified to a greater extent when using such tools as artificial insemination (AI), embryo transfer (ET), and in vitro fertilization (IVF). Some breed influences can improve fertility while others may be detrimental. For example, breeds with Bos indicus (eared cattle) genetic influence have been found to give inconsistent responses to reproductive hormones. Breeders must realize that results also will vary from one female to the next and from mothers to daughters, or between full siblings, due to the various lineages and the environmental influence upon those genotypes. Stress “Stress can be one of the primary challenges to fertility,” explains Dr. Jose Molina, technical services veterinarian at Trans Ova Genetics. In particular, stress is common in females who are not used to being handled or driven through chutes, which is a common practice for breeders employing AI, ET or IVF procedures. The hormones adrenaline and cortisol are released when cattle become nervous and stressed. And, according to Dr. Molina, these hormones can produce a negative effect on the fertility of the animal as well as on the other hormones related to natural reproduction. Stress can be managed and controlled to improve fertility results. To minimize stress, handlers should exercise common sense. Shouting at the cattle unnecessarily, using tools such as hot shots or herding dogs adds a negative, startling effect. Reproductive results also may be improved by reducing stress through handling with care, calm and caution. The cattle will feel less threatened and more comfortable with someone approaching them if they are handled in groups rather than on an individual basis. Safe and secure chutes,

alleys and sorting pens with minimal distractions will minimize stress and keep both animals and handlers safe. Fertility History Cows that have proven themselves through regular calving events are good indicators of superior fertility. To enhance reproductive results, breeders should identify such productive females within their herd. “Particular cattle simply reproduce with greater efficiency and consistency than others,” Dr. Molina acknowledges. “While this does not always equate to an individual having superior performance with superovulation programs, it does signify that her reproductive tract and genetic propensity to be fertile is good.” A better predictor of fertility is a previous history of flushing or of the cow’s family being flushed with good results. “Flushing history will help us adjust stimulation programs accordingly,” says. Dr. Molina. “We can then be more confident that we will achieve the best results possible for that particular donor at that particular stage of her life.” Sire’s contribution to fertility Though the female influence is strong, the male side of the reproductive equation should not be overlooked when seeking optimal fertility with any herd. Breed influence, as well as semen quality, can affect fertility. Just like the female, some sires and their semen will perform better than others. Before using a bull’s genetics, breeders should evaluate the fertility of the male by considering past fertility results. If possible, try to obtain or use semen that has worked well in superovulation and flushing programs before. Donors need to be heat detected consistently so the onset of first standing estrus is clearly defined and artificial insemination of excellent quality semen is at the appropriate time interval. This can help reduce the chance for economic losses that may result when rare or expensive semen is used on females with lower fertility. If you are going to be using limited, rare or expensive semen you may wish to consider an IVF program where the semen usage can be maximized. Most breeders will face some degree of challenge when dealing with the fertility of their cattle. However, with careful management and care, reproductive performance can be improved. Specific areas can be corrected to produce successful results with advanced reproductive technologies. Breeders should understand the challenges, causes and options available to reduce the detriment associated with fertility challenges.

I

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

t Is Spring – Are Your Cows Ready?

Professor To Producer

Spring has arrived in much of the U.S. and it is earlier than normal. I do not remember running show barn fans before March 15 with 80 °F days, at least not until this year. Grass is ready for grazing here in Central Illinois – 30 days early. In fact, my cows have “gone-to-grass,” coming up only to eat soyhulls and almost no hay. This time of year, winter/spring calving cows are in one of two stages of production. Winter-calving cows (January, February, March) are nursing calves and beginning to cycle. Spring-calving cows (April, May) are in late gestation/early lactation. The question producers should ask themselves is: “Are my cows ready for spring grass?” Do they have an appropriate body condition score (BCS) to nurse, cycle and conceive? During late gestation, a cow’s nutrition requirements (particularly energy) increase substantially. The last 30 days of gestation, the fetus and placenta increase in weight about one pound per day. Cows fed high-quality grass hay (10.5% or higher crude protein) will require an energy supplement. I recommend soybean hull (SBH) pellets or meal. This winter, I fed my cows grass hay ad libitum and approximately 7 pounds per day of SBH meal. Shelled corn at $6.40 per bushel costs 11.43¢ per lb. Soyhulls at $140 to $170 per ton costs 7¢ to 8.5¢ per lb. Shelled corn and SBH have similar crude protein values and energy values, but SBH are more efficacious for cows on a forage diet. Cows will walk to eat shelled corn, but they will run to eat SBH. Soyhulls are very acceptable (palatable) to cattle and even though they have a lower TDN value than shelled corn, SBH high digestible fiber content provides a similar amount of energy to the cow as does shelled corn. If cows are on a corn silage diet, SBH are not an appropriate supplement. Corn silage is too low in crude protein (6%-8% on a dry matter basis) for SBH to serve as a sole supplement. Corn gluten or corn distillers grains contain sufficient crude protein (22%-29%) to balance a corn silage diet. I recommend wet corn distillers grains with solubles (WDGS) or condensed distillers solubles (CDS) sometimes referred to as syrup. My rule-of-thumb recommends 10-12 pounds of WDGS:cow:day (wet weight basis) to ensure adequate weight gain and BCS prior to calving. From an economic perspective, WDGS and CDS are generally lower in price than corn gluten products. Currently, WDGS is selling for around $90:ton and CDS is lower in price. The problem with these two feedstuffs is they are high-moisture feeds and require unique storage. Modified wet distillers grains (40-60% moisture) can be stored in a level pile or bunker silo if treated with salt (one pound:sq. foot of surface) and covered with a plastic tarp. Syrup (CDS) requires a storage tank because it is a liquid. Our research at ISU, feeding both beef cows and feedlot cattle either WDGS or CDS, has found these two feedstuffs as economical, lower-cost replacements for shelled corn and soybean meal. The day a cow calves, her total digestible nutrient (TDN) or energy requirement goes up 50%; her crude protein requirement doubles; her vitamin A requirement goes up 50%; and her calcium

278 May 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

and phosphorous requirements triple. Feeding late-gestation and early-lactation cows in the same group means producers are either overfeeding or underfeeding one of these two categories of cows. Similarly, feeding first-calf two-year-olds along with mature cows results in overfeeding or underfeeding one of these categories of cows. First-calf two-year-olds require more energy and protein during both gestation and lactation than do later parity cows. To optimize feed costs and to ensure optimum BCS, cows of different ages and cows in different stages of production should be housed or – at least fed – separately as groups. The energy intake prior to calving has as much effect on postcalving conception rates as does nutritional balance postpartum. Maintaining cows within a BCS range of 5 to 7 is most important to ensure high conception rates. At ISU, we like to maintain our prepartum cows as close to a 7.0 BCS as possible. Almost all goodmilking cows will drop at least one BCS post-calving. To avoid any cows from falling into a BCS below 5.0, keeping late-gestation cows a little fleshly (not fat – fat cows can have increased dystocia and produce less milk) helps prevent excessive postpartum BCS drop. Cows within a 5-7 BCS range will cycle earlier and have higher conception rates than cows below a BCS of 5.0. At ISU, we have maintained a 60-day calving interval for 30 years, calving in February and March since 1982. Once cows go-to-grass, they will increase their BCS; but thinner cows will have to reach the BCS threshold of 5.0 before they will conceive. Therefore, now is the time to increase energy intake for April-May calvers. Another factor to consider before cows go-to-grass is the vaccination program. At ISU, we vaccinate and deworm all cows in early December, about 60 days prior to calving. Pre-calving vaccinations help cows provide an immunity to baby calves against a variety of diseases and E. coli diarrhea. If winter-calving cows were not vaccinated prior to calving, vaccinate them before turning to grass. The ISU vaccination regimen includes an annual vaccination against IBR, BVD, PI3, BRSV, Vibrosis, 5 forms of Leptospirosis, Haemophilus, Clostridium C&D and an E coli bacterin. A third factor that can help ensure higher conception rates is treating cows again for internal and external parasites before turning onto pasture, period. Cows, also, should have been dewormed in late November or early December prior to winter feeding. Pouring cows is easy to do and pouring not only prevents or treats cows with lice and internal worms, but promotes hair shedding. My years of experience suggest this is going to be a hot summer. The faster cows shed their winter hair coat, the sooner they will conceive. In a Nebraska study, average daily minimum temperatures between 55°F and 60°F resulted in optimum pregnancy rates. Slickhaired cows can cool down faster and maintain lower body temperatures than long-haired cows. Now is a great time to be in the cow business. Feed costs are high, but using by-products can lower feed costs. Feeder calves and cull cows are selling at record prices and life is good!


Management of Young Bulls

Dr. Rick Rasby Professor of Animal Science, University of Nebraska

Y

Before and After the Breeding Season

earling bulls should be in condition score 6 (1 = thin and emaciated; 9 = obese) before the start of the breeding season. This is usually not a problem as these bulls would be coming off of a growing/development ration. Yearlings should be left with the cow herd for 60 days or less. Beyond that time, their condition can fall off to such a degree that it could have long-range effects upon their growth. After removal from the cow herd after the breeding season, yearlings should be kept separate from the older bulls if possible at least through their second winter. Yearlings need to be fed or grazed on a good quality forage or pasture. For spring/summer breeding programs, this could be meadow regrowth or bromegrass pasture. Their supplemental feeding regime can be equated to the program for bred-yearling heifers. These bulls are growing rapidly, in addition to replacing the condition they lost during the breeding pasture. Extra care and feed of yearling bulls after the breeding season should increase their

longevity. These bulls should also have a Breeding Soundness Evaluation well before the start of the breeding season. Two-year-old bulls Get two-year-old bulls in condition or their working clothes well before the start of the breeding season. Start at least 100 days before the start of the breeding season to get these bulls in condition score 6. This may mean some grain or distillers may need to be fed to get them in condition. Starting early enough means that you will not need a lot of grain or distillers to get this accomplished. Two-year-old bulls should have more of their mature size by breeding season as compared to yearling bulls. A 1,700 pound 2-year-old that is slightly under-conditioned will probably only need to gain 1 pound per day at this stage in his life. To do this, active bulls may need 40 pounds of feed or more on a dry matter basis, of which 5 to 7 pounds should be grain. If body condition is well below the target, the amount of grain will need to be increased to near 0.5 to 1 pound or more per 100 pounds of body weight. Again, make any

increases in grain intake gradually so that digestive disorders are unlikely. The diet will need to be about 12% crude protein. Depending on the forage available, this again may a require protein supplement. Monitor the body condition of the bulls closely and make grain feeding adjustments to reach the body condition score of 6 before the next breeding season begins. After this age of bull finishes the breeding season, good, quality grass pasture should be adequate. Watch body condition and if they struggle to pick up condition by fall, they may need some supplement during the fall and winter. These bulls should also have a Breeding Soundness Evaluation well before the start of the breeding season.

Hay Still GoinG to Be HiGH

Expected gains in hay acres harvested during 2012 were second only to corn according to the USDA-NASS Prospective Plantings report. The report revealed farmers are hoping to harvest more than 1.7 acres above last year’s, according to the Livestock Marketing Information Center (LMIC).This is roughly half a million more acres than the pre-report LMIC estimate and its largely coming from states where other than alfalfa hay is grown. The states with the largest hay increases were in Texas – up 700,000 acres – and Oklahoma – up 400,000 acres. Rather unsurprising in location, high prices and recovery from drought will bolster hay acres harvested in 2012. Nearly all of the southern states are looking to increase the number of hay acres this crop year. A few northern states also are planning to increase acres harvested, the most notable is North Dakota up 320 acres from last year. Even with a larger than expected increase in hay acres, hay prices are likely to remain relatively high. The mild winter will certainly help the stocks situation, but also will likely not save it from the dire condition left in the wake of the drought. Nationwide, May 1 stocks are expected to still be rather tight and increased acreage will help ease hay prices for livestock producers, but it is unlikely they will return to a normal level this year. Hay prices nationally in the 2012-13 crop marketing year will likely remain in the top three of record years. Rain and more mild temperatures have returned to most of the region severely impacted by drought in 2011 and some reports are that green-up is ahead of schedule. Sources indicate when the pasture and range conditions start being reported, much of the country will be ahead of normal. The pasture and range conditions played a very large role in the hay situation last summer and likely will again this year.

Beef BuSineSSeS Get Slimed

The fallout from media saturation over so-called “pink slime” used in ground beef, which is in reality lean, finely textured beef (LFTB), has caused thousands of workers to lose their jobs. Beef grinding business have closed or gone bankrupt, including AFA Foods, which filed for bankruptcy in early April. According to analysts with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Daily Livestock Report, the Pennsylvania-based company cited continued media coverage of the uproar over LFTB as the final straw in its financial demise and was looking for a buyer, telling a bankruptcy court that it hoped to close a deal within three months. AFA is reported to have 850 full-time employees. BPI, Inc., a Nebraska company, has

280 May 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

at least temporarily closed three grinding operations involving 650 workers. “What is important about these closures and bankruptcies? They are backing up a lot of 50-percent lean beef trimmings and beef fat trimmings,” write the analysts. “Regardless of what you think about LFTB or ‘pink slime,’ the market impacts of this situation are apparent. The weekly average price of 50% CL (chemical lean) beef trimmings has dropped from roughly $1.00/lb. at the end of February to just...$0.59/lb. (the first week of April). “The removal of LFTB has also taken several hundred million pounds of product out of the lean beef supply, supporting the price of 90% CL trimmings. … the price of this product is holding steady as lower supplies offset the negative impact of the news stories on ground beef in general. But, the fallout does not end with beef. Lower grinding beef values have likely played a roll in lower pork trimmings prices, since some of these products are ready substitutes in processed meats. Pork trim prices are usually steady to slightly stronger as spring and filled ballparks and hot dog sales approach. They have fallen steadily since March 1 this year….”

food marketinG BanS take a BeatinG

“We’re not the only ones pleased by a federal judge’s dismissal of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) lawsuit over toys in kids’ meals,” according to the Center for Consumer Freedom. “We said from the beginning that the idea that toys make kids fat was frivolous, and not surprisingly, we have company in that view. One columnist for an Arizona paper compares kids’ meal toys to the little trinkets in Cracker Jack packages, noting, ‘I ate the Cracker Jack treat because I liked it, not because it had a toy in it.’ (That distinction may not matter to CSPI: They have a history of attacking foods people admit to liking.) And in (the April 13th) Wall Street Journal, George Mason University law professor Todd Zywicki presents more evidence that activists who want to ban food marketing to kids are barking up the wrong tree. He offers a finding that few ‘public health’ groups consider: Most advertising is aimed at turning consumers of one product to a similar product, like one soft drink brand to another. “Ads are not primarily creating new soft-drink drinkers or snack eaters. Thus, it shouldn’t be surprising that restricting advertising doesn’t make people stop drinking soda or eating snacks. Just ask Sweden and Quebec, which have obesity rates comparable to similar countries despite enacting ad bans. “We can think of other reasons why advertising bans fail to


make people skinny. For one thing, ad bans don’t make kids actually get off the couch (that’s the “calories out” side of the weightgain equation). Also, bans on advertising to kids forget that parents ultimately decide what their kids eat. (What a novel idea.) Additionally, marketing bans have a chilling effect on the First Amendment. It’s no surprise that the recent federal proposals are called

‘voluntary,’ but Zywicki notes that federal regulators have promised identical regulations if there aren’t volunteers. And if that day comes, activists will be happy to serve as the government’s Food Thought Police. For more information, see CFC’s website at www. consumerfreedom.com.

Dealing with dying or dead cattle is a chore no producer wants to put on their to-do list. Here are some tips for making the best of a bad situation.

Euthanasia & Disposal Doing it Right

Maybe it’s that first-calf heifer bred to the wrong bull, or maybe it’s that good old cow that just went downhill on you overnight. It could even be your best steer that got his leg caught in some accident, but sooner or later every producer has to deal with an animal whose pain and suffering requires an assisted, humane end to its life. How do you make that decision and what’s the best way to carry it out? Furthermore, what are you going to do with the remains? Well, it depends. The American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) has guidelines to help you answer the first question in a free publication entitled Practical Euthanasia of Cattle (available online at www.aabp.org/resources/euth.pdf). The guidelines address the varying needs of producers, livestock facility operators, law enforcement and animal care officers and veterinarians.

First: making the decision

AABP lists several criteria to consider when dealing with debilitated, disabled or injured cattle. There are three different paths to pursue – treatment, harvest or euthanasia – depending on your assessment of the following eight factors: • Pain and distress of the animal • Likelihood of recovery • Ability to get to feed and water

Medications used on the animal Drug withdrawal time Economics Condemnation potential Diagnostic information

For example, if you’ve been treating the animal for an extended period of time with a laundry list of animal health products, sending it to the packer may not be your best option. Most animal health products have a withdrawal period on the label, which tells you how many days must pass after the last dose is given until the animal can be harvested. The withdrawal period allows time for drug residues to be eliminated or reduced to legal tolerance levels before harvest. Furthermore, that process may not work as quickly with an emaciated or debilitated animal, requiring an extended withdrawal period. Obviously, your veterinarian can help you evaluate the animal’s treatment and condition. Some common reasons for euthanasia, according to Practical Euthanasia of Cattle, include a fractured leg or severe trauma; loss of production or quality of life (severe mastitis, etc.); inability to stand or walk; diagnostics (rabies, etc.); advanced cancer eye; debilitating or toxic condition; poor prognosis and prohibitive cost of treatment; and extended withdrawal time for sale of meat and poor prognosis.

Selecting a method

Selecting the most appropriate method of euthanasia also depends on a number of factors, says AABP – not the least of which includes human safety. Animal welfare is also a prime

concern; after all, euthanasia is defined as intentionally causing or allowing a “painless and easy death.” You should also consider what form of restraint (head gate, etc.) is available. The working environment may limit both the practicality and aesthetics of some methods. For example, AABP says some techniques may “result in significant involuntary movements of the animal, which may be misinterpreted as a voluntary painful response.” In other words, if an animal has to be put down in a very public environment, such as a stock show or roadside emergency, be aware of the animal’s potential reaction and how your “audience” may respond. Some methods require more skill, training or cost on your part than others. Finally, if the animal is being put down for diagnostic reasons, such as an infectious disease, you may need to choose a method that protects certain tissues needed for laboratory testing. Table 1 describes five methods that meet AABP’s guidelines for bovine euthanasia including: gunshot, captive bolt, barbiturate overdose, exsanguination (drained of blood) and electrocution. Other methods are unacceptable due to ethical and humane standards. Those include manually applied blunt trauma to the head; injection of chemical agents into conscious animals (disinfectants, etc.); air embolism (injection of a large amount of air into the bloodstream); and electrocution with a 120-volt electrical cord. No matter which of the acceptable methods you choose to employ in any given situation,


Feed the tigers

make sure the animal actually expires. AABP suggests checking the animal for a lack of heartbeat or respiration or corneal reflex (touch the eyeball to see if it blinks). When there is no heartbeat or respiration for five minutes, you can be certain the animal has died.

Disposal of dead livestock

The next major question you may ask yourself is, “Now what?” For some folks, disposing of dead livestock is an infrequent and uncomplicated process. They can haul the animal to the proverbial Back 40 bone pile to an all-you-caneat buffet for coyotes and buzzards. Other producers still have the luxury of a local rendering plant that will come by and pick up the carcass, maybe even for free – but it’s not unheard of to be charged for that these days. So what’s a person to do? There are a lot of options available, though some disposal methods will require more pre-planning than others. For example, someone who runs a backgrounding or stocker operation (where death loss may be considerable) with sizable numbers might consider composting.

Composting cattle

“Composting is combining green matter (dead cattle in this case) and brown matter (a carbon source) with water and air to generate heat and decomposition,” explains Rayford Pullen a former county extension agent. “The internal temperature of a compost pile will get to about 160 degrees, which you can manipulate by the addition of air and/or moisture. In short, the compost pile will have a layer of ground-up straw (or other carbon source) about 2- to 3-feet deep on the bottom to catch any initial leakage from the carcasses. Then the producer alternates a layer of dead livestock and a layer of straw. Round hay bales can be used to build three “stalls” in the compost pile, where each pile can be moved once every three months to maintain the heat by mixing air and moisture. Each pile will hold 50 head of 500-pound steers. “To speed the process up, you would turn the pile every week or two,” Pullen says. “After six months, this thing ought to be able to feed right out through a fertilizer spreader – bones and all. You can dispose of it back on your pasture in the form of organic matter, which is good for the soil.”

In Decatur, Texas, Roland Davie has a really unique way to deal with dead livestock now and then at the Decatur Livestock Market. His solution is also unique; he calls the “tiger people.” “Most auction barns have a policy that they don’t accept downer cattle,” Davie explains. “We want to avoid even the appearance of cruelty.” However, even if the animal isn’t a downer, some cattle show up that aren’t in the best condition for one reason or another. “People forget how old their cows are, or they try to get one more calf out of them,” Davie says. “Sometimes those older cows aren’t able to maintain their health and condition. They just wear out.” Of course, accidents will also happen now and then when you start moving cattle around. Whatever the situation, if an animal dies at the auction barn or needs to be euthanized, a nearby wildlife center will bring a rifle, take the carcass back to their facility, process it and put it in a freezer. The meat becomes supper for the wildlife center’s lions and tigers; it’s a win-win situation. The wildlife center even runs a weekly ad in the local newspaper to solicit fresh or nearly deceased livestock. You might call it the original recycling scheme.

Other methods of disposal

If you’re not lucky enough to have hungry tigers nearby, a local rendering service available or a large enough spread to dispose of the livestock on your property, there are other legal options. But there are some regulatory guidelines to be aware of, even when you are taking care of business on your own property. The extent of those rules and regulations seems largely dependent upon two things: whether your operation is classified as a confined animal feeding operation (CAFO) and whether or not the carcass is from a diseased animal that Table 1 could cause further human or Bovine euthanasia Methods animal health challenges.

Depending on where you live, there may be multiple state agencies with regulatory authority over the disposal of dead livestock. This one issue can fall under several categories of influence: animal health, municipal solid waste, industrial solid waste management and municipal hazardous waste, perhaps even others. There may also be federal regulations that apply. If you have multiple animals involved in a major die-off, you probably should contact your state animal health commission. However, if there is just one animal and the cause of death isn’t a worrisome disease, there are still some general guidelines to follow in order to protect air qualit and water quality and address public concerns. For example, Lara Garey of the Texas Natural

Resource Conservation Commission points out, “When you bury, it should be in the kind of soil that won’t cause groundwater issues. You need to protect your drinking wells. The site should be at least 500 feet from a public drinking water and 150 feet from a private well. You also need to protect your surface water, so you would not want to bury close to a river, stream, pond or lake.” She also says it’s a good practice to bury some distance away from any property line to prevent problems with the neighbors. You can also burn a dead animal on your place – but be sure to check whether or not there is a local burn ban in place before you light the first match. Garey says if you take an animal to a commercial incinerator, it would be advisable to

make sure the facility has both an air permit and a municipal solid waste permit. Landfills can accept dead livestock, though the facility will require the animal to be buried with at least 2 feet of soil or 3 feet of waste. As we all know, both environmental issues and animal welfare guidelines are becoming increasingly relevant to the day-to-day chores of the ranching industry, reaching all the way down the supply chain to cow-calf producers. While it may take a little more time and thought to do things “right,” maintaining the public’s confidence in our ability to care for the land and our animals is worth the extra effort. As with other things in life, once you lose it… you can’t get it back.

Do you remember where you were back then?

This column is the third 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.

Amber Martin, The Show Circuit SC: What is your background – were you raised on a farm or ranch? I was raised on a farm in central Iowa. My dad farmed about 60 acres, and we had a small herd of cows, as well as a few horses. My dad was also a milk hauler and traveled all around Iowa each day on several routes picking up milk from dairy farmers. Because of his business, and following in my parents and older brothers footsteps, I got very involved in 4-H, showing dairy cattle and completing countless other projects. I attended Grand View University and majored in graphic journalism with a minor in photography. SC: Would you describe for us what you really do (sometimes job titles aren’t reflective of the actual work): As web director for The Show Circuit, my job is to design and construct new websites for clients. Also, within the web side of my job, I have the opportunity to work on updates on our clients’ sites, as well as creating and setting up email blasts to send out. I also manage our Show Circuit email list and our Show Circuit website. Outside of my web duties, I am also lucky to have the opportunity to design ads for the magazine, as well as special projects such as sire catalogs, flyers, brochures, logos and more! SC: How did you get into this line of work? My senior year of college, I happened to find a job listing in the newspaper for a graphic design position at an ag-related company near my hometown. The day after I graduated, I began my job in graphic design and web design there and fell in love with working in the ag industry. After five years of working there, I accepted a position with The Show Circuit as web director. SC: What do you like about your job? Everything! I love the people I work with, the clients I get to work with, and I love being able to work from home doing what I love. SC: What are the toughest challenges for what you do? I think the toughest challenge is to continue learning and growing your craft as a designer and learning new techniques and tricks to keep producing the most outstanding and creative work possible. Besides being a challenge, it is also fun and exciting to keep learning! SC: Do you need a college degree in your profession? Yes. I hold a degree in graphic design and graphic journalism with a minor in photography. SC: Where should somebody go to get started in your line of work? If they are interested in graphic design, I think the best place to start is a college or university with a great graphic design program. From there, they should look for an entry-level graphic design or web design position in an ag-related company where they can learn the day-to-day tasks like doing updates and then eventually learning to design and setup new

286 May 2012 • theshowcircuit.com

A Web Director websites for clients. SC: What is a typical day on the job like for you? Every day on the job is different, which is something I love. I never know what my day will include until I check my email and see how many updates and/or new projects have come in. Typically I get up and make my coffee, then I check email. After I check email, I do all the tasks that need to get done right away that day, such as updates and setting up email blasts. After lunch, I usually work on new website designs, ad designs or other special projects. SC: What would surprise a student about your career? I think what might surprise them is to know how many jobs are out there in this field. When I was in college, I never dreamed I would be able to work in the ag industry. I had my sights set on working for a newspaper or perhaps a local magazine, but I was surprised to find there were careers in my chosen field working with livestock producers and others in the industry. I also think it would surprise many of them to learn how innovative and forward-thinking people are in the ag industry. There is so much technology being used and it is a very fast-paced and an exciting time to be involved. SC: Anything you wish someone would have told you when you were in school? Perhaps to broaden my horizons on where I could work and what I could do with my degree. I think it is important to have a dream of where you want to work or start your career, but then also realize that there are so many other possibilities out there, and they may surprise you and become more than you ever imagined!

• Wide Open,, is one of the most unique PB Simmental sires to come onto the scene in recent history. While in Denver 2010, he was a high seller and was named Bull Calf Champion on the hill. • His fresh genetics, power and athleticism made him a favorite among purebred breeders and club calf producers alike. His sire, Foreman, produced the top selling bull in Denver 2011. Wide Open’s pedigree traces to X339U on the top and bottom, plus Black Irish Kansas, Black Mick and 600U...maternal legends. • As his first daughters approach yearling age, they are tremendous and all that we had hoped for. They appear to have lots of maternal look and they are moderate and stout. These females are big time cow makers! Semen $25 per unit; SEXED SEMEN AVAILABLE.
