Rancher, Melissa Arhart works pairs on her family’s ranch near Alpena, S.D., using the stockmanship, cattle handling technique. Arhart, and her family were attracted to the method because it allows one person to work large groups of cattle safely, quickly, with little to no stress inflicted on the animals.

Working Cattle is a One-Woman Job

W

atching Melissa Arhart work cattle is like watching a band director during a concert.

Today Arhart is busy weaning calves. As she walks into the pen of calves recently separated from their mothers, she begins to take several steps back. It doesn’t take long before the calves seem interested and begin to move toward her. She focuses on their reaction. Their response dictates her movements. She begins to walk in

a zig-zag, straight-line pattern, approaching the calves at a diagonal, working them for the first time without their mothers. “By my actions and body language, I get the cattle to move the way I want them to - because they want to,” says Arhart, 29, of the stockmanship skills she’s been honing and implementing on her family’s Alpena, S.D., ranch/feedlot operation over the last five years.

rowing up on a sheep farm near Viborg, S.D., Jamie Flint says she didn’t understand the broad scope of career opportunities found in South Dakota’s agriculture industry until her first agriculture education class in high school.

“The farm I grew up on was all I knew about agriculture. When I took the animal science class my freshman year, it opened up my eyes to all the possibilities of what I could do in agriculture,” says Flint, who is pursuing a degree in animal science at South Dakota State University.

ith only a few weeks left before sunflower harvest, Brad Bonhorst says that by the looks of his fields he anticipates yields of about 2,000 pounds an acre this year.

The Hughes County farmer is among a shrinking number of South Dakota sunflower producers doing their part to meet the growing demand for this oilseed crop. “Planted acres is the major issue in the sunflowers industry,” says Bonhorst, of the crop of which South Dakota is the second largest producer in the nation.

Donna Robbennolt, 2011 Eminent Homemaker, Gettysburg, S.D. When Donna Robbennolt is passionate about something, she works hard to share her passion with others in her community. At a young age Robbennolt developed a strong interest in art when her school teacher introduced her to drawing and painting as a seventh grader in a oneroom school house. Only a few years later, when she became a country school teacher at the young age of 17, she worked to introduce her students to art as well. As a young mother, she provided her three children with opportunities to share her passion. Throughout her life, she has shared this passion for art and art education with the community of Gettysburg by dedicating many volunteer hours to fundraising and organizing events and activities which bring culture, arts and art education to the rural community. “The arts are important.

It’s exciting and challenging,” said Rausch, who is quick to add that he is able to be involved in activities off his large purebred Hereford operation he runs with his brother, Jerry, and their sons because of his family’s support. “I’ve been blessed with partners who cover for me when I’m not home.

Arhart, and the family were attracted to the method because it allowed one person to work large groups of cattle safely, quickly, with little to no stress inflicted on the animals. “Before we did what most cattle producers do. When it was time to move or work cattle we all went out to help. We used extra labor, heavy duty facilities, horses or 4-wheelers. When we saw that the stockmanship method worked and reduced the need for extra labor and equipment we wanted to learn more,” said Arhart, who became an eager student of the technique.

Different from other low-stress cattle handling practices which focus on facility design; stockmanship focuses on the cattle producer and his body language as it relates to his cows. “With stockmanship, you don’t have to change facilities, you have to change yourself. This is a totally different way of thinking,” Arhart says. “We used to always think of facilities when we would talk about cattle handling before. Now we think about ourselves and focus on our actions and our body language – that’s how we control the cattle. We get the cattle to move because they want to.” She explains that when using stockmanship practices, cattle move because of basic pressure and release concepts.

away or turn back. If something wants out of the herd, or out of the corral, I realize I did something wrong as a handler and I am over-pressuring them,” Arhart says. “This instinct of wanting to be together can do a lot of work for us. Before, we would get in the way of it.” Arhart emphasizes the fact that stockmanship works everywhere – in an open pasture, in a corral, or in an alleyway. “I make sure that I am able to control the cattle in the pasture or feedlot pen first before we work them in the facilities,” she says. “If we have the skills to control them in the open, it’s a breeze to work them in facilities.”

The 18-year-old looks forward to a career in animal genetics after college. “Agriculture is so much more than farming. I hope to help develop animal products that will help farmers feed the growing population,” Flint says.

the FFA is an intracurricular organization which provides leadership and career development to high school students who are enrolled in agriculture education classes. In South Dakota, more than 3,300 high school students State FFA Officers are college students who serve as are members of the FFA. They are enrolled in agriculture, role models and are the student leaders of the state FFA food and natural resources classes in 77 high schools organization. Each year six college students are selected to across the state. serve as state officers based on an intensive interview process. Previously known as the Future Farmers of America, The role the FFA organization and agriculture education plays in preparing the next generation of agriculture leaders and professionals is significant, says Nathan Sanderson, policy advisor to Governor Daugaard.

“Agriculture has been, is, and will continue to be South Dakota’s number one industry,” says Sanderson, who was actively involved in FFA as a high school student and served as a State FFA Officer in 1998. “With agriculture being the largest employer in South Dakota, having young professionals to fill jobs is very important to the future success of our state.” Sanderson points to his involvement in FFA as key to developing his communication skills, as well as motivating his decision to pursue a degree in agriculture education.

“FFA allowed me to meet a variety of people with differing backgrounds and interests. It also helped me develop the confidence to interact with people without reservation,” says Sanderson, of the many experiences he had as a State FFA Officer visiting with high school students from across the state, hosting workshops and interacting with educators and agribusiness professionals. “Those experiences prepared me well for what I do today. I work with South Dakotans every single day. Many are individuals I’ve never met before.

Bonhorst says sunflowers are in competition for corn and soybean acres. When he planted his first sunflowers in the mid-80s South Dakota farmers grew more than 1 million acres of sunflowers. Today, less than 400,000 acres in the state are dedicated to the crop – even though this year 8 percent more acres were planted to sunflowers in South Dakota than in 2010. “This is a nationwide trend. Just over a million acres are planted nationally,” Bonhorst says. As planted acres continue to decline, Bonhorst says the large crushers threaten to convert their plants to canola plants unless they see a reversal of the trend. “Basically they are saying we’re not a

reliable supplier,” he says. “To keep this industry going at full strength, it’s important that we build up acres to the point that we prove we are reliable supplier.” Doing his part to promote the benefits of planting sunflowers to his peers, Bonhorst serves as president of the South Dakota Oilseed Council. Having raised the crop for more than 25 years, he says promoting the benefits of growing sunflowers is easy. His long list of praise for the oilseed begins with the fact that they are a good cash crop, currently holding its own with the corn markets. A low-residue crop, Bonhorst says it works well to add sunflowers into his rotation of corn, soybeans and wheat - each year Bonhorst plants 500 acres of his 2,000 cropland acres to sunflowers.

“Year-in and year-out, they are in the rotation. They work well to break up the disease cycle and in this part of the country, sunflowers will yield a crop when corn and soybeans won’t,” says Bonhorst, of the plant’s 3-foot tap root which efficiently mines moisture and nutrients corn and soybeans can’t access.

the years the ARS plant geneticists have developed more disease resistant varieties that are resistant to some broadleaf herbicides. “We want people to plant sunflowers and are working to make this crop as competitive as other crops,” Bonhorst says.

He adds that by reviving the sunflower industry, current growers can support the research necessary to keep the industry moving forward. “This is a small crop, and because it doesn’t have the acres, the large corporations of the world don’t put a lot of research money into it. That’s up to the sunflower Checkoff.” According to Bonhorst, 80 percent of Checkoff dollars go to the Agriculture Research Station (ARS) in Fargo, N.D. Over

Bonhorst’s passion doesn’t end with promoting the sunflower industry. Along with the Oilseed Council, he is a past president of the Corn Utilization Council and currently serves as chairman of the ag policy committee for the National Sunflower Association and South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association. “Someone once told me that ‘those who show up make the rules,’” Bonhorst says. “If I can share one message with other farmers, it’s to get involved. If we don’t show up as an industry, the environmental

Cook-Off Highlights Beef ’s Versatility

tender, aroma-filled comfort food with a taste twist and a refreshing, colorful, tangy salad took top prizes in this year’s South Dakota Beef Cook-Off during the recent State Fair in Huron. The winning entrées, Roast Beef Caribbean Style and Citrus Steak Salad, were indicative of the variety of dishes created by home cooks and featuring one of 29 lean beef cuts.

Susan Patrick, Watertown, topped her six competitors in the Cook-Off’s adult division—and took home $500 cash—with a chuck shoulder pot roast prepared in a cast iron Dutch oven. What set this recipe apart, said CattleWomen Cook-Off Chair Karla Pazour, was a braising mixture of interesting ingredients including ginger, habanero peppers, and cinnamon. “This is not your grandmother's pot roast,” said Pazour. “It has a subtle island-taste that still allows the beef flavor to be prominent. Roast Beef Caribbean Style proves that beef can fit into modern cuisines." Patrick, Lincoln Elementary school principal said she used peppers from her brother-in-law’s garden. “If you prefer less heat,” she advises “use jalapeno instead of habanero or peppers to your taste.”

Michaela DeWald, Milbank, won the youth division of the South Dakota Beef Cook-Off with her Citrus Beef Salad.

Susan Patrick, Watertown, took first place in the South Dakota Beef Cook-Off adult division with her Roast Beef Caribbean Style.

fortable trying new beef recipes,” says Pazour. “And this year’s theme of ’29 Lean Cuts of Beef ’ provided an opportunity to prove that there is a healthy beef cut and recipe for every meal solution.”

On the lighter side, 15-year-old Michaela DeWald of Milbank put together her beef salad and the winning combination in the youth division against five other entrants, taking home a $250 cash prize. This ninth grader at Milbank High School is no novice when it comes to cooking. She won the Cook-Off’s youth division two years ago with her Western Beef and Corn Casserole. She said she enjoyed this particular recipe, which included top sirloin steak, strawberries, goat cheese and Romaine lettuce. “I liked working with the various food groups,” said Michaela, adding that she has polished her competitive cooking skills through her involvement with the 4-H program’s Special Foods contests.

For the second year in a row, the cook-off day also featured the Beef Basket Challenge, a beef-cooking contest between two celebrity South Dakotans. This year, Holly Hoffman, of TV’s Survivor fame, and her South Dakota legislator husband, Charlie Hoffman, vied against one another in a one-hour contest to see who could create the best beef entrée with a basket of surprise ingredients, including beef flank steak, provided them at the start of the contest. With spectators cheering them on, the Hoffman’s, from Eureka, SD, bantered back and forth while slicing, dicing and cooking. Charlie’s braised flank steak won over his wife’s grilled beef kabobs in a People’s Choice award.

Patrick, the adult division winner, says her family eats a lot of beef and enjoy coming up with unique ways to use less expensive cuts like the chuck shoulder roast that pack a lot of taste and flexibility. While she and her husband, Jim, compete in outdoor cook-offs with their turn-of-the-century chuck wagon, this was the first time she entered the South Dakota Beef Cook-Off. “It was truly a surprise and an honor to win,” said Patrick.

“Youth are our consumers of tomorrow,” said Pazour. “It is always amazing how capable our youth contes-

hanks to the dauntless efforts of a small band of beef-loving volunteers in South Dakota, lucky Wheel of Fortune contestants this winter may be heading home with the means to purchase $1,000 each in T-Bones, Sirloins and burgers. Beginning January 9, $1,000 in Beef Bucks—pre-paid checks and or VISA® debit card for purchasing beef at restaurants or grocery stores—will appear as one of the gift tags on the colorful carnival wheel that contestants spin for prizes during the popular nationally syndicated program. Landing a spot for Beef Bucks on the infamous Wheel of Fortune was an effort in tenacity and dedication for the people who direct Beef Bucks, Inc., the non-profit South Dakota-based organization whose primary purpose is to promote beef and educate consumers on beef nutrition and cooking. “We were pretty excited when we received the call in August from the people at Wheel of Fortune,” said Bob Montross, beef producer, farmer and one of the eight Beef Bucks, Inc. directors. “They told us that our Beef Bucks had been selected as one of the gift tags contestants can win. We knew then that we had made the big time.” Bob said the effort to get Beef Bucks accepted as one of the gift tags began almost

Winning Recipes

From Page 22

Roast Beef Caribbean Style by Susan Patrick, Watertown (Adult Division Winner) Step One: 2 ½ lbs. chuck shoulder pot roast 4 garlic cloves, cut each in half 2 tablespoons olive oil ½ tsp. Rick’s Salt, ½ tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. chopped garlic Cross cut roast and push garlic clove halves INTO roast (remove after cooking). Rub roast with olive oil and sprinkle the roast with Rick’s Salt and pepper. Rub chopped garlic on the outside of roast. Sear roast in additional olive oil (using high heat). Step Two: In a bowl mix together braising mixture: One bunch green onions, slivered

2” piece of fresh ginger minced or ½ tsp. ground ginger 1 Tbsp. thyme leaves (rolled and cut fine if fresh) 1 tsp. ground allspice 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. ground nutmeg (less if fresh) 2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper 2 or 3 habanero or jalapeno peppers, diced & seedless (wear gloves for this part) 2 or 3 garlic cloves chopped finely 2 Tbsp. DARK brown sugar ½ cup soy sauce (regular or low sodium) ½ cup lime juice ½ cup corn oil (or other vegetable or olive oil) Add ½ (or more) of the braising mixture to the seared roast in a roasting pan (I use a cast iron Dutch oven). Depending upon the size of the pan and the fit of the roast in the pan, it is important to have the bottom surface of the pan covered at a depth of about 1”. Add 3 Tbsp. more directly on top of the roast. (It is important to reserve some mixture for later and not have roast “swimming”!)

*Based on automatic 4x4 500 H.O. Class ATVs.

Bake at 300 degrees for 2 hours. Remove roast from oven and add 3 Tbsp. more of the mixture on the top of the roast. If the mixture on the bottom of the pan has reduced to less than 1”, add enough mixture to bring it back to the 1” level on the surface. Reduce heat to 250 degrees and bake for 2 additional hours. Remove the pan from oven. Let it set in the pan for 10 minutes without any heat. Remove meat from pan and remove the garlic cloves. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes on the cutting board before slicing. Slice and place on serving platter. Serving: Splash 1Tbsp. of braising mixture across each slice/serving. Garnish with lime. *Allowing the meat to marinate in braising mixture overnight will tenderize even the tougher cuts of beef. If you marinate overnight, remove it from marinade and wipe it with olive oil and then sear it and place it in a roasting pan with fresh braising mixture and follow all of the steps listed above.

Citrus Steak Salad by Michaela DeWald, Milbank (Youth Division Winner) 1 lb. top sirloin steak, stir-fry, thinly sliced

Heat oil in large fry pan, sauté steak for 4 to 6 minutes (steak strips are slightly pink). Divide Romaine among four plates; top with steak strips, strawberries, onion, oranges, pecans and cheese. Serve with vinaigrette. Garnish with parsley and a rose strawberry. Serves 4.

Getting Beef Bucks on Wheel of Fortune is certainly a coup for this organization that began in 1997 in the small South Dakota town of De Smet. However, those who know the people involved with Beef Bucks, including Bob and his wife Nancy, are not surprised. "Bob and Nancy Montross are the ‘Ambassadors of Beef ’,” said Tom Daschle, former U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader from South Dakota. “No one anywhere has ever done a better job of promoting beef. I am thrilled, but certainly not surprised, that Wheel of Fortune is now part of their efforts. I fully expect that some President, some day, will include Beef Bucks in their ‘State of the Union’ message, too.” Senator Daschle said he has personally experienced Bob and Nancy's dedicated efforts to promote the beef industry in many ways, “including attending events on their South Dakota farm, listening to them speak passionately about the industry they love, receiving telephone calls from early morning to late at night, and, of course, using Beef Bucks myself!" While serving as Senator, Daschle also submitted recipes that are included in two Beef Bucks Recipe Collections. To date, Beef Bucks, Inc. has sold more than $1 million worth of its beef-only checks and reloadable VISA debit cards which are backed by two financial institutions. The Beef Bucks have been used, said Nancy, in more than 40 states. The organization also has a web site (www.beefbucks.org), a blog, a dedicated phone number (1-888-640 MEAT), and a continuing desire to sell the product they love to raise. “We wanted to have a convenient and fun
