Board Commentary
We have a dugout on our property that is obviously a temporary home from an early settler – a depression approximately the size of a flatbed. I cannot imagine spending a single night there, let alone living there during the extremely cold winter months or hot summer days so common in the Flint Hills of Kansas. - On page 6
Association Commentary
Nuggets of truth and perspective are often found in the writings of bright minds from the past. One such nugget was recently unearthed from the September 1989 ARA Magazine. Dr. Bill Turner, then a Beef Cattle Science Professor at Texas A&M University, wrote an article discussing which traits are important to different segments of the beef industry. - On page 10
Marketing Update
Why? They are massive. They have this huge trunk with the fingerlike projections that they use in a number of ways – eating, drinking, spraying water, etc. They seem so docile and gentle, and though I’ve never worked with one, it seems like it would be an interesting encounter to do so. - On page 18
JRA Update
College Scholarships Over $5,000 in college scholarships is available to Junior Red Angus members! High school seniors and college freshmen may apply for the five $1,000 scholarships available, at redangus.org/jra/programs/scholarships. Applications are due Feb. - On page 20
Member Services Update
Many get the question, “What is your New Year’s resolution?” But really, the question should be, “How can we make improvements all year long – even five years from now?” We encourage all to fill out a Herd Improvement Plan and let us follow up with you on your operational goals. - On page 28
The Right Sort for Sale Day
They’ve made a lot of good memories on sale day. Dick Cooper flips back through a retired sale catalog like an old family album, recalling what sold for how much and reading scribbled notes in the margins. Of course, they’ll never forget the record-breaking prices of 2015. - On page 36
All Eyes on Them
Last year, she created a website (www.cooperredangus.com) to feature their cattle, share information about the ranch and photos or videos of cattle they’ll have for sale. They fielded phone calls from states away inquiring about cattle and requesting more photos or videos. - On page 37
First Year is in the Barn
The RAFI organization is fairly young in fundraising years. However, RAFI was well organized by the forefathers that had the insight to think far into the future. They identified three funds in which to manage donors’ contributions with respect to where we want the breed to go, while meeting the individual needs of the donors. - On page 50
Red Angus Teams up With Kansas State University to Publish Valuable Data From Cow-Calf Veterinarians
Results from a detailed survey of cow-calf veterinarians compiling their recommendations on vaccine protocols, health management and production practice recommendations were recently published in The Professional Animal Scientist, the publication for the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists. - On page 58
Electronic Logging Device Will Add Hardship to Livestock Transporters
“These regulations are becoming an extreme burden on us as a small-business owner,” stated Dale Wood, owner of D/S Trucking. Wood and his wife Sherry are going on nearly 40 years in the trucking business. - On page 68
Top Dollar Angus Yielded Top Dollar Payouts in 2017 $
Top Dollar Angus is a great way to start your Marketing and Genetic Certification Plan for 2018. Top Dollar Angus had another very successful year with our marketing premiums for high-end carcass and growth cattle. Top Dollar Angus-certified cattle ended 2017 with an average premium paid of $32 over market price per head. - On page 84
What Feeders Want: Feeding the Right Genetics
It’s easy to imagine raising calves that will garner premiums on the grid, however, execution is often much more difficult. A wide variety of factors are in play – genetics, nutrition, vaccination protocols, performance and marketing. All of which can be boiled down to one word: management. - On page 100
