Board Commentary
These last several months, we have been watching our divided nation bicker over politics and it can be quite distressing and disheartening. Whether you voted Republican or Democrat shouldn’t matter. We are all Americans and should all want America and its leadership to be successful. - On page 8
Association Commentary
The Red Angus Association of America has a long history of innovation. Two of the most successful “firsts” directly attributable to RAAA are Total Herd Reporting and a Commercial Marketing Program with fulltime staff. Both programs have bettered the test of time (over two decades and counting), and are still very important today. - On page 12
Marketing Update
As you gear up to select your next herd sire, you may also start thinking about how you are going to market his calves in the months to come. More breeders and commercial cattlemen are utilizing the FCCP tag than ever before to garner Red Angus premiums. - On page 18
Red Navigator Benefits Cow-Calf Businesses
The popularity of DNA testing in commercial herds is growing steadily, and rightfully so given the amount of insight that these tests can provide. The ability to differentiate genetically superior females is no longer a tool reserved for seedstock producers. - On page 26
JRA Update
The 2017 Junior Red Angus Young Stockman’s Program took place January 5 and 6. The conference began Thursday evening in Denver at the Double Tree Hotel. Here, juniors participated in several teambuilding activities, played a Red Angus matching game, and built bovine reproductive tracts out of candy. - On page 32
Member Services Update
Hopefully for most, the busy season has started to slow down a bit. This month’s update has several helpful tips and information to support upcoming data submissions. Also, it might serve as a refresher course of rules, regulations and deadlines that have been in place for years. - On page 40
RAAA Seeks Carcass and Feed Intake Data
While Red Angus cattle have earned a solid reputation as being the commercial producer’s breed of choice when building a profitable cowherd, the true versatility of Red Angus is shown when the steer mates excel in the feed yard and garner substantial premiums when sold on the grid. - On page 56
Red Angus Genetics Provide Success for Commercial Herds
“We know the reds work because they continue to top the market.”. - On page 72
A Road Map to Transportation Stewardship
Carcass-merit genetics play a crucial role in beef quality, but management practices can also heavily impact beef animals’ welfare and ultimately the quality of beef on the rail. - On page 88
Genetic-Selection Research Aimed at Reducing BRD Incidents
Snotty noses, down ears and coughing are some of the most discouraging signs a cattleman detects. Although reaching for the antibiotic bottle and syringe has become the standard treatment protocol, most producers dream of the day when their herd will be immune to Bovine Respiratory Disease – or BRD. - On page 94
BrainTrust Outfits Cattlemen to Scale the Summit
Cattlemen across the country gathered in Denver for BrainTrust during the National Western Stock Show in January. The educational event, titled “Scaling the Summit,” focused on technology and management to improve profitability in commercial and seedstock beef businesses. - On page 100
RAFI Holds Annual Meeting in Denver
The Red Angus Foundation, Inc. (RAFI) recently held its annual meeting in conjunction with the Association’s events at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. - On page 108
