March 6, 2014 -- Golden Valley News Page 3 Develop a positive attitude toward change B Recently I watched a fantastic movie written by Danny Strong and directed by Lee Daniels titled "The Butler." Initially, I wanted to watch the film simply because it starred so many of my favorite actors and ac- tresses. The movie, inspired by a true story, tells of a White House butler who served seven American presidents over three decades. The film traces the intense changes that swept American society during this time, from the Civil Rights Move- ment to Vietnam and beyond, and how these events affected this man's life and family. Several days after watching the movie I started to contemplate how I handle change. Do I embrace it or do I run from it? Inevitably change occurs and affects us all in different ways. Sometimes it is dramatic and drastic. For others it could be as easy and welcoming as a sunshiny day. Change is constant; it is one of the great constants of the universe, nothing is as it was a moment ago. For many, change is a terrifying word, it evokes fear and uncertainty. Others thrive on it - seeking it out whenever they feel like their lives Beef Talk By Kris Ringwall Beef Specialist NDSU Extension Service Change is con- stant; it is one of the great constants of the universe, noth- ing is as it was a moment ago. are too mundane. Whether you love or loathe change, you have to face it. The fact is, you will have to deal with change in your life, but how you deal with it is all up to you. Over the years I've come to real- ize you can find positive in every circumstance. Take a look at a changed situation. What is good about it? What can you learn from the incident? What can you learn about yourself? Adjusting your atti- tude can change a lot. It's not easy - I certainly know that first hand - but it's possible. When you're faced with a difficult situation, look for the positive. It's there. Sometimes you might have to look a little harder, dig a little deeper, but you are sure to find it if you merely look. Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know imme- diately of the significant change that we are experiencing across this great state of ours. Change in our economy, property tax, population, landscape, environment, and the list goes on. In what way have you been affected? Acknowledging change as a process of empowerment will help ease the pain of any kind of transi- tion. Attempt to be open minded to the change that is all around us. I en- courage you to be willing to learn the lesson this change has in store. Accept change as an extraordinary positive force in your life. I leave you now with a quote from Charles Darwin -- "It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most re- sponsive to change." (Nunberg is the Beach city audi- tor and is the president of the North Dakota League of Cities. She writes this column for the City Scan maga- zine.) A new motivation for the obese to skinny-Up With the fat and obese people being the fastest growing group in America, discussion of their condi- tion has become politically incor- rect. By that, I mean any politician expecting victory down the road can't afford to offend this burgeon- ing group. More than one-third of U. S. adults are obese. When they become the majority, the slim will be re- quired to eat carbohydrates. How- ever, we can't sweep obesity under N.D. Matters By Lloyd Omdahl budget hawks sided with costly obe- sity and lobbied for modification of the healthier school menus. If the kids don't like healthy gov- ernment-subsidized lunches, per- haps they should bring their own peanut butter sandwiches to school. That's what many of us did in the person's body is the temple of the Holy Spirit so we should honor it. But what good is grace if you can't be obese? So where do we go from here? Thus far, nothing has slowed the re- lentless expansion of obesity. As a last ditch effort, my proposal is to try taxes. We have used the tax system to foster economic development, to fight urban blight, to help the needy, to encourage charitable giving, ad mng: Early discussions of animal breeding and selection always grouped producers into three types, which were the breeder, multiplier and commercial producer. Generally portrayed as a pyra- mid, the base represented the large group of commercial producers who are in the business of producing products for the consumer. These producers would obtain breeding stock from the second level within the pyramid. The second level represented those producers who specialized in expanding the population of breed- ing males and females. Their princi- ple source of income was selling sires and replacement females to the commercial producer. As a general rule of thumb, commercial produc- ers would neuter all male offspring and, in some cases, even sell all the female offspring. As one would climb the pyramid, the top represented the elite breed- ers, those breeders who offered breeding stock to seedstock produc- ers for propagation. Our agricultural friends use the same process be- cause crop producers may be in- volved in or have access to breeder, foundation, registered or certified seed. At the top of the pyramid is crop breeder seed, which is the product of an intense selection regime that commonly is referred to as the first generation. The seed is kept under close supervision to allow for ap- propriate regeneration to assure a source of the seed. As the seed is further prepared for distribution, foundation seed is produced or maintained to assure adequate preservation of the genetic traits and associated purity of the seed. As a genetic line of seed expands to commercial production, just like As one would climb the pyramid, the top represented the elite breeders, those breeders who offered breeding stock to seedstock producers for prop- agation. commercial production, certain pro- ducers become certified seed pro- ducers to produce certified seed. These producers go to great efforts to assure certifying agents and their customers that they have met a sat- isfactory expectation and their seed contains the genetic traits the origi- nal breeder desired to offer to the in- dustry. There is the assurance that the seed is pure and not significantly modified from the original stock. This process has been going on for more than a century in livestock and plants with the expectation of producing copious amounts of food to feed people. As beef producers, the process is not as structured as the system of genetic improvement and imple- mentation that our agricultural friends have honed. Nevertheless, the process still is with us. What is it? Breed associations and expected progeny differences (EPDs). vide food for people. As cattle producers shop for those genes, it is easy to see what cattle or sires have the needed DNA. In contrast to the agricultural indus- try's structured process for certified seed, bull buyers depend on breed associations. Both processes work well. Breed associations derive from their data sets the EPD values that bull buyers need to have the assurance that the genes they want are present. Mean- while, if one reads the tag on a seed bag, the tag tells the producer what is in the bag. At the Dickinson Research Ex- tension Center, we read tags. We know what is in the bag or, in this case, under the hide. The current Simmental tag says birth weight 2.2 pounds, weaning weight 78 pounds, yearling weight 109.9 pounds, mar- bling score 0.07 and rib-eye area 0.99 square inch. The Red Angus tag reads birth weight minus 0.5 pound, weaning weight 61 poun~ls, yearling weight 104 pounds, marbling score 0.43 and rib-eye area 0.38 square inch. As a commercial user of bulls, the center needs to have access to data to find the genetics desired to meet the center's goals. Breed asso- ciations provide and meet that need. Just like our farming friends, with proven bulls or certified seed, it pays to read the tag. May you find all your ear tags. Please support your local the rug.
