Aggie drawn to raising, showing beef cattle – krvn.com

CURTIS, Neb.  – Dalton Keller is well versed in beef cattle and animal science so he decided that in his third year of college he would chart a different path.

Keller added skills in irrigation technology, electricity, ag mechanics, welding and ag safety to his program at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis.

Why pursue the irrigation technician program?

“I just wanted to have some knowledge about center pivots,” Keller explains. “How they are set up, how they work, and to have enough knowledge that when I started farming I wanted to be able to repair one myself and not have to hire someone.”

Keller’s family recently purchased a small farm south of Torrington, Wyoming, where Dalton raises a couple dozen cattle, alfalfa and grass-hay crops. Both of his parents work for the local school district in Goshen County.

As an FFA student in Southeast High School at nearby Yoder, he was active in livestock judging, ag mechanics, and then caught the bug for showing club calves.

Through FFA, he was trained in beef cattle artificial insemination and worked with a custom AI crew during breeding seasons. Keller also continued showing cattle, fitting and grooming, and learning the ropes of the cattle business throughout his high school career. Then he set his sights on college.

“I knew that I wanted to be involved in the cattle industry,” Keller said. “I checked around a lot and found that NCTA had what I wanted the most for college.”

On May 7, in a virtual, online commencement, he graduated magna cum laude (3.75-3.99 GPA) and was named salutatorian for the NCTA Aggies Class of 2020.

He received an associate of applied science degree in livestock production plus the 1-year certificate in irrigation technology.

Next fall, if on-campus classes proceed as currently planned by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Keller will pursue a bachelor’s degree by transferring in animal science to the UNL College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The CASNR program is a 4-year partner to NCTA’s 2-year campus.

“Dalton is a bright young man,” said Doug Smith, Keller’s animal science professor and advisor the past three years.

As an NCTA Aggie, Keller continued to travel to cattle progress shows, including the National Western Stock Show in Denver in January. He also enjoys helping at bull and female sales and processing livestock for producers.

During college, he was employed at Arrowhead Meadows Golf Course across the highway from NCTA. He also was seasonal help for an area rancher, sometimes working cattle but more often helping control the invasive eastern red cedar trees growing in pastures and canyons of the Medicine Valley.

Campus activities as an Aggie student were focused on his coursework. He was a member of Collegiate Cattlemen and Collegiate Farm Bureau.

The NCTA home stretch

When the coronavirus pandemic caused colleges to switch to remote learning, the transition was a challenge for hands-on activities. Keller credits NCTA professors for swiftly adjusting their teaching styles. He finished his final eight weeks of classes online in Wyoming, about 250 miles away from campus.

“It (remote classes) was a big change for me,” he admits. “I would go out and work all day on the farm, then come in at night and sit down before I went to bed and get to my assignments.”

Fortunately, he says, he took a lighter load of 12 hours this semester, expecting to be traveling to more cattle shows and away from campus on weekends in March and April. That all changed with COVID-19.

“So I was happy to get done what I had done before this year,” he adds.

For the first two years at NCTA, Keller says he took advantage of enrolling in every animal science or livestock class that he could, including a comprehensive capstone course required for livestock, equine and crops production majors.

In the capstone course, students write a business plan after researching all facets of a ownership/production enterprise. Students also cover topics such as legal issues for business, land and animal ownership. The course couples assignments in ag economics and production management, helpful for his family’s business marketing club calves as Keller Cattle.

Keller had received an NCTA Dean’s Scholarship when he started as an Aggie in August, 2017.

Model of beef cattle, transportation industries as critical infrastructures reveals vulnerabilities – Fence Post

The beef supply chain and transportation industries are interdependent critical infrastructures and need safeguarding according to a computer simulation model developed by Kansas State University researchers.
Photo by Tommy Theis

MANHATTAN, Kan. — An interdisciplinary team of Kansas State University researchers developed a computer simulation that revealed beef supply chain vulnerabilities that need safeguarding — a realistic concern during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Caterina Scoglio, professor, and Qihui Yang, doctoral student, both in electrical and computer engineering, recently published “Developing an agent-based model to simulate the beef cattle production and transportation in southwest Kansas” in Physica A, an Elsevier journal publication.

The paper describes a model of the beef production system and the transportation industry, which are interdependent critical infrastructures — similar to the electrical grid and computer technology. According to the model, disruptions in the cattle industry — especially in the beef packing plants — will affect the transportation industry and together cause great economic harm. The disruptions modeled in the simulation share similarities with how the packing plants have been affected during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When we first started working on this project, there was a lot of emphasis on studying critical infrastructures; especially ones that are interdependent, meaning that they need to work together with other critical infrastructures,” Scoglio said. “The idea is if there is a failure in one of the systems, it can propagate to the other system, increasing the catastrophic effects.”

Support Local Journalism

The study included a variety of viewpoints to create a realistic and integrated model of both systems. Co-authors on the paper include Don Gruenbacher, associate professor and department head of electrical and computer engineering; Jessica Heier Stamm, associate professor of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering; Gary Brase, professor of psychological sciences; Scott DeLoach, professor and department head of computer science; and David Amrine, research director of the Beef Cattle Institute.

The researchers used the model to evaluate which supply chain components were more robust and which were not. They determined that packing plants are the most vulnerable. Scoglio said that recent events in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic raise important issues about how to safeguard the system.

“An important message is that after understanding the critical role of these packers, we need to decide how we could protect both them and the people who work there,” Scoglio said. “While the plants are a critical infrastructure and need to be protected, taking care of the health of the workers is very important. How can we design a production process that can be flexible and adaptable in an epidemic?”

According to the paper, the beef cattle industry contributes approximately $8.9 billion to the Kansas economy and employs more than 42,000 people in the state. Since trucks are needed to move cattle, any disruption in either cattle production or transportation almost certainly would harm the regional economy, Scoglio said.

“Packers need to be considered as a critical point of a much longer supply chain, which needs specific attention to make sure it will not fail and can continue working,” Scoglio said. “Beef packers are a critical infrastructure in the United States.”

The project was supported by the National Science Foundation and focused on southwest Kansas, but the researchers acknowledge that cattle come from outside the region and interruptions may have larger national effects.

Photos: Coronavirus Creates Uncertainty for Texas Cattle Dealers – The Wall Street Journal

Texas cattle dealers are facing an uncertain future amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has roiled industries big and small. Live cattle futures, which determine sale prices, have plunged. Restaurants are closed. And packing plants have had to slow their processing amid health precautions.

Livestock dealers, who buy cattle to finish them out and sell them to packers, said that if futures stay where they are now, they will wind up losing money on each cow or steer.

“I bought these cattle and I was set to make a couple hundred dollars a head, and now, the way it’s going, they could lose $200 a head,” said Joe Price, of JP Cattle Co., a small operator in Cuero, Texas, that has just under 1,000 cattle on feed now. “That would make a lot that I worked for the last 10 years for nothing.”

The Latest on the Coronavirus

  • Johns Hopkins: Total coronavirus infections pass 1.7 million world-wide
  • Johns Hopkins: U.S. cases top 400,000; death toll exceeds 18,000
  • GOP effort to approve hundreds of billions of dollars in funding to support struggling small businesses runs into resistance as Democrats seek broader move
  • What we know about the coronavirus

Cattle auctions are still going on but have slowed. Billy Schwertner, who owns three Texas livestock auctions, said they are moving about 30% to 40% fewer animals than usual at this time of year. Due to the threat of the virus, only buyers are allowed to attend—no family members or spectators—and they space themselves throughout the auction.

The uncertainty is the worst thing, Mr. Schwertner said. He and Mr. Price know their industry is in the same boat as others.

“Right now the revenue is down, and with the numbers and the market, it’s pretty hard to pay your bills and make payroll,” said Mr. Schwertner. “It’s hard to do it.”

Billy Schwertner, owner and operator of three livestock auctions, including Edna Livestock Auction in Edna, Texas, said he had to appeal to the county judge for the auctions to be designated an essential business as they are part of the food-supply chain.

An auction manager expedites the flow of the sale from a booth, conveying any problems getting cattle to the show area and helping track where cattle have come from and will go after the sale.

After being shown on the floor, cattle are routed toward a hallway into a pen to be loaded into a trailer.

Small and midsize cattle operations often rely heavily on local livestock auctions to sustain their business.

With business slow, few buyers are present, mostly those who consistently buy from this auction. Social distancing is observed and promoted by auction staff.

Though livestock auctions are still running on a limited basis, many cattle ranchers are bracing for uncertainty as big meat-packing plants warn they will be closing or slowing production amid the pandemic.

Mr. Price is still paying his employees and, though he may lose money, has no choice but to keep buying and selling cattle, he said.

“It’s just taking a gamble and seeing what the world comes to,” he said.

Joe Price, owner of JP Cattle, in his ranch home in Cuero, fears he will lose, instead of earn, $200 a head on the herd of nearly 1,000 cattle that he has tended for the past decade.

‘I feel sorry for the ones that can’t pay the bills,’ said Mr. Price of cattle ranchers. ‘That’s going to be a big factor. It sounds easy to say “We just got to ride it out,” but I wonder how long some of them can ride it out.’

Michelle Boedeker, a relative newcomer to the cattle industry, said the slowdown has made it difficult to find ranch work involving cattle. Virtually all that is left to do is to pick up trash and wash the deck, she joked.

Michael Johnson is a full-time ranch hand at JP Cattle in Cuero, which has just under 1,000 cattle that its owner fears will sell at a loss.

Gary Fritsch, owner of Fritsch Cattle Co., the largest family-run cattle company in Fayette county, had similar concerns. “I got up this morning and thought, ‘Why do I even want to go buy cattle that is going to lose $200 a head?” he said.

“Before, you never thought about me. but today you’re thinking about the farmer, the rancher and the guy that produces the eggs and milk,” said Mr. Fritsch. “You have to start thinking about us; it didn’t come from the grocery-store shelf like everybody thought.”

At Fritsch Cattle, the largest family-run cattle company in Fayette county, a ranch hand works on the property in Fayetteville.

‘The sales have gotten smaller. People aren’t bringing the cattle to the sales,’ said Gary Fritsch, Fritsch Cattle’s owner, in his ranch office. ‘We’ve slowed down buying because there’s so much uncertainty in the market.’

Ranch hands prepare to herd calves into different pens to process them. Herding via horses is the preferred method.

Work on a cattle ranch is varied and always demanding.

Once cattle have been processed and their weight and health brought up to desired levels, they are left to graze on open grass. Often they will live on the pastures until they are ready, by weight, to be sold to a meat-processing plant where they will be killed and their meat sold.

Cascade County rushes to save starving cattle west of Cascade – Great Falls Tribune

A man is facing animal cruelty charges after 230 cows were found to be starving in the middle of calving season including 65 that already had died.

Authorities learned of the starving Black Angus from people who drove by the property and saw dead cows, Cascade County Sheriff Jesse Slaughter said.

“This is a big disaster,” Slaughter said Tuesday.

Slaughter said about 65 animals have died, although authorities still are checking to see if more have succumbed. Some of the surviving animals are pregnant.

“Some of these moms, you could walk right up to,” Deputy County Attorney Jennifer Quick said. “They couldn’t get up they were so weak.”

The property is located off of Mission Road between Cascade and Simms about 40 miles southwest of Great Falls.

George J. Savoy, 57, was charged with aggravated animal cruelty and taken into custody Tuesday, Cascade County Attorney Josh Racki said.

Racki said he also planned to file an animal welfare petition, a step needed to seize and care for the herd and possibly recoup money the county spends.

But Racki told Cascade County Commissioners during an emergency meeting called Tuesday morning to address the starving animals not to count on getting repaid.

Officials with the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, Public Works and Montana Department of Livestock rushed to the scene Tuesday afternoon to assess the situation.

Feed was arranged and was on the way. Authorities were also figuring out what do with the carcasses.

Paul Johnson, a livestock investigator for the Montana Department of Livestock’s Great Falls district, said the cows were severely underweight.

Johnson said it was the worst case of animal cruelty involving cattle that he had encountered. “I haven’t seen one this bad,” he said.

Slaughter said the county will likely need to care for the cattle for at least a month.

The cost of feeding them for a month could be $27,000 and Slaughter said the expense could be much higher, between $50,000 to $100,000, when other costs are factored in such as hiring somebody to care for the animals and moving them.

“I know this community is going to want to help,” Slaughter said. “And you know what? We need their help.”

The county is accepting financial donations at the Sheriff’s Office at 3800 N. Ulm Frontage Road and taking questions at 406-454-6820. Feed can be dropped off at Cascade Solid Waste Site on the Simms-Cascade Road two miles west of Cascade.

The most immediate tasks Tuesday were to get the cows fed and removing dead animals that were in a stream, Slaughter said.

When authorities arrived at the property they found a grisly scene.

The air stunk and the underweight cows bellowed relentlessly.

Some calves wandered slowly around by themselves.

Bloated bodies of dead animals, their black hides splotched with bird droppings, were strewn across the landscape. Some cows had been cut open for necropsies.

“Sad situation,” Undersheriff Cory Reeves said.

Slaughter said no explanation had been given yet for the cause of the catastrophe.

There may be more dead cattle. Authorities said three additional properties where Savoy kept cows are being checked now

“It’s grazed down to the dirt,” Capt. Scott Van Dyken of the Sheriff’s Department said of the land where the 230 starving cattle were discovered.

Commissioners gave the go-ahead for the Sheriff’s Office and Public Works, which was called in to assist with moving the dead cattle, to look into hiring somebody to care for the cattle and arranging feed.

“We have to do the humane thing and feed these animals as soon as possible,” Commissioner Jane Weber said.

“Talk about lousy timing for something like this,” added Commissioner Joe Briggs, referring to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Jeez,” said Commission Chairman Jim Larson, a rancher.

Consumers Can Now Connect with American Cattle Producers to Buy USA Beef – Yahoo Finance

Billings, Mont., March 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Billings, Mont. – In the wake of empty beef cases in grocery stores in some areas of the country, R-CALF USA has launched a new Website that connects consumers with their neighboring cattle farmers and ranchers who raise and sell cattle or beef that is exclusively born, raised, and harvested in the U.S. directly to consumers. The Website is www.USABeef.org. The Website is a platform for cattle farmers and ranchers to list their farms, ranches, or businesses, along with the type of cattle, beef and beef products they offer direct to consumers. American consumers can peruse this list online and contact the farmer, rancher or business of their choice to purchase beef that is exclusively born, raised and harvested in the United States. In some instances, the farmer, rancher, or business will sell consumers a portion or the entire live animal and will arrange for the consumer to have the animal harvested at a state-inspected packing plant. In other instances, the farmer, rancher, or business will sell beef and beef products directly to consumers that were harvested in a federally inspected packing plant. R-CALF USA issued a member alert to its 5,300 members in 43 states on Friday announcing the availability of the platform that its cattle farmer- and rancher-members can begin listing their farms, ranches and businesses so they can be contacted by American consumers. The site is growing daily, currently 76 farms, ranches and businesses from 24 states are already listed on the platform and American consumers can begin contacting them immediately. All U.S. cattle farmers, ranchers, and business that sell beef direct to the consumer, including local butcher shops and local processors, are invited to list their contact information at no cost on www.USAbeef.org, provided they meet the site’s only requirement: all beef must be USA -born, -raised, and -harvested. “This is a small but important step that our organization can take to help connect America’s consumers to America’s cattle farmers and ranchers so they can enjoy the safest, most wholesome beef in the world – USA beef,” said R-CALF USA marketing director Candace Bullard. Bullard added that her organization hopes that by bridging the gap between consumers and their cattle-producing neighbors, some of the farmers and ranchers struggling with seriously depressed cattle prices will be able to stay in business. “However, many of our industry’s cattle producers are not able to sell their cattle or beef directly to the consumer, which is why our first step in addressing this ongoing crisis was to urge President Trump to take immediate steps to fix our dysfunctional cattle market and to pass a new Mandatory Country-of-Origin Labeling (M-COOL) law for beef so American producers can compete against imports in America’s marketplace,” she said. “Back to our new Website, if people share the Website on their social media, and message it to their friends perhaps we can help ensure that no American family will have to go without USA beef on their table at a time when it’s needed most,” Bullard concluded. # # # R-CALF USA (Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund, United Stockgrowers of America) is the largest producer-only lobbying and trade association representing U.S. cattle producers. It is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring the continued profitability and viability of the U.S. cattle industry.
