Page 2 Golden Valley News November 21, 2013 Beef Talk By Kris Ringwall Beef Specialist, NDSU Extension Service Peggy Justesen BEACH - Peggy Justesen, 74, of Beach passed away on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, at the Wibaux County Nursing Home in Wibaux, Mont. Visitation was from 1-5 p.m. and from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Silvernale-Silha Funeral Home in Beach. A Rosary was re- cited at 10:20 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Beach. Mass of Christian Burial was held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 14, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Beach with Celebrant the Rev. Daniel Berg and Deacon Don Nistler officiating. Rite of Com- mittal followed services at the Beach City Cemetery. Silvernale- Silha Funeral Home of Beach was entrusted with arrangements. Peggy was born on March 18, 1939, in Flasher, a daughter of Bernard and Regina (Bachmeier) Hartman. She was raised on a farm near Shields and educated in the local schools. She worked in the Selfridge Grocery Store and later moved to Beach to work at the Fire- stone Store for a period of time. Peggy later became a longtime em- ployee of Montana Dakota Utilities until closing their office in Beach. Peggy met and later married Einar Justesen on Dec. 1, 1961, at St. John's Catholic Church in Beach where they had resided since. To this union four children were born, Lana, Cheryl, Dana and Beth. Peggy was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Beach, St. Ann's Guild and the American Legion Auxiliary. Peggy loved knitting, quilting and crochet- ing. She was also a wonderful cook and baker who could put an excel- lent meal together in a short period of time. She was well known for her caramel rolls, pies and home- made noodles. Peggy was a won- derful mother to all her children. Peggy was preceded in death by her loving husband, Einar Justesen in December 2012; one daughter, Lana; her parents and one brother, Victor Hartman. Peggy is survived by her three daughters, Cheryl Justesen of Beach, Dana (Jerry) Irons of Au- rora, Colo.; and Beth Justesen of Beach; one brother, Norman Hart- man of Raleigh; two sisters, Ann Kraft of Selfridge, and Bernadette Schaffer of Selfridge; one grand- daughter, Jessica Irons of Aurora, and numerous nieces and nephews.

N.D.'s federal Marketplace enrollment re .00ased Fall cattle exams can tell the story 6.5 percent rate is more typical. Given the disappointment that the open rate was a little high, one can- not help but be extremely pleased with the first-cycle conception rates. As was experienced last year, those 72 cows that the center is breeding in August have good first-cycle con- ception rates. Cattle reproduction is not simple, but there are several ways to meas- ure or identify a positive or negative influence on herd production. Keep in mind that the number of cows calving in the first 21 days of the calving season only evaluates those cows that calved or are pregnancy checked in the fall as pregnant. The CHAPS benchmarks have been presented yearly as composite five-year rolling values and provide the industry with some typical val- ues to evaluate individual producer operations. The CHAPS bench- marks for the number of calves born within the first 21 days of the calv- ing season is 63.4 percent. In look- ing back to last year, 89.2 percent of the cows at the center calved within the first 21 days of the May through June calving season. The bulls were turned out on Aug. 1, 2012, and the start of the calving season was set at May 10, which was 283 days following bull turnout. May 31 was considered the end of the first 21 days of the calv- ing season. The center certainly was anxious Last week, one set of 72 beef cows came off the pasture and was brought home to the Dickinson Re- search Extension Center ranch head- quarters. The cows' trip through the chute was fast. Their average weight was 1,482 pounds, with a condition score of 5.3. Of those that were pregnant, 55 are projected to calve in the first 21 days of the calving season, starting on May 10, 2014. The remaining I0 pregnant cows are projected to calve in the second 21-day calving period. Of those cows that are pregnant, 85 percent are projected to calve in the first 21 days of the calving season. Is that a good number? Well, the CHAPS benchmark average is a lit- tle more than 63 percent for those herds that are enrolled in the North Dakota Beef Cattle Improvement Association. There alwa)'s are good and not so good breeding seasons. However, since the center has been breeding in August for May calving, the breeding seasons have been good. Some would say, "Knock on wood," while others would say, "I told you so." However, the fact is that the cows are breeding well in late summer. Not all is perfect because seven of the cows were open. If the cows are going to breed, it seems like they breed quickly and those that don't breed quickly simply don't breed. In reality, the number of opens is greater than one would want, but it is indicative of a major problem. The cows were exposed to the bulls for approximately 45 days (Aug. 1 to mid-September). The open rate was 9.7 percent, while the CHAPS benchmark would suggest a St. Joseph's to hold memorial service ones who have died, this non-de- nominational memorial service pro- vides an opportunity for remembrance, reflection, healing and celebration of life through scrip- ture, music and inspirational read- BISMARCK - North Dakota In- surance Commissioner Adam Hamm on Nov. 8 released informa- tion on the number of North Dakotans who have enrolled in a health insurance plan via North Dakota's federally-facilitated Mar- ketplace. The three insurance companies doing business in the Marketplace - Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, Medica Insurance Company and Sanford Health Plan - had 30 en- rollments as of Friday, Nov. 1. Addi- tionally, reports to Hamm from these three companies indicate that 35,585 people are or will be losing their ex- isting health insurance policies due to changes being made to comply with the Affordable Care Act.

Now that the cows are home and pregnancy checked, once again the cows have bred in a very timely fashion. The conversion of the center's cows to the May calving program was ac- complished by maintaining the cur- rent cows while culling open or late COWS. Maybe there are some cows that do not breed well in August, which may account for the increase in the number of open cows this year. However, that probably will remain an unanswered question until the center has more data. In reality, those cows that do not breed well are self-eliminated in any beef cat- tle SYstem, and the same would be true for those breeding in August. Even though the numbers are limited to the center's data, it still is remarkable that breeding cows in August and early September, fol- lowed by calving in May and early June, is doable. The fact that the cows bred quickly is the point. That is a plus and certainly worth dis- cussing. Golden Valley News P.O. Box 158, Beach, ND 58621 (U.S.P.S. Pub.

Again, for those cows having conceived within 21 days of bull turnout, there is at least a 22 percent advantage for the cows that will calve or are projected to calve based on this fall's ultrasound pregnancy exam, compared with the long-term CHAPS benchmarks. If this trend continues, it would be a very positive effect of later calving. That trait alone should keep beef producers pondering if later calving would fit into their opera- tion. Good reproduction does not off- set the weight gain of a calf born 60 days earlier. Mid-March and April- born calves are heavier because of their age. More pounds means more dollars. There also are other ques- tions such as bull fertility during late-summer high temperatures. However, at least for a couple of years, the cows are coming home pregnant and then calving well. However, the challenge remains, which is managing lighter-weight, weaned calves with enough gain through backgrounding to achieve sufficient operational dollars. May you find all your ear tags.
