John Pfeiffer Satisfied That the Angus Breed Well Positioned for Continued Success as He Ends His Year of Serving as Association President

John Pfeiffer Satisfied That the Angus Breed Well Positioned for Continued Success as He Ends His Year of Serving as Association President Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays sat down with Oklahoma Angus Breeder John Pfeiffer who has wrapped up his year as President of the American Angus Association- with the conclusion of the 2019 American Angus Convention in Reno, Nevada.


The Angus Association has done a great job implementing new programs to help their commercial producers who are buying Angus bulls. Programs like Angus Source and Angus Link. Pfeiffer says the Process Verified Programs or PVP’s are going to be instrumental as new markets open up. Pfeiffer adds, “They are going to be a real value to our producers.”


The Association also has a new research project that is ongoing that includes a new Genomics chip. This will help identify cattle with high immunity, Pfeiffer says this will not only provide better tools for our breeders, but also provide better tools for our consumers. “If this high Immune response does what we think its going to do, we’ll be able to reduce the amount of antibiotics and find those cattle will be healthier. It also helps with the CAB, as we have some who do the sickness that don’t make the grade they could, so it offers lots of possibilities” says Pfeiffer.


When asked about the Mood of Angus Producers across the country- Pfeiffer says for the most part it's pretty good. There is some concern about the amount of change that is taking place, but change has always been a part of the day to day in cattle production. Pfeiffer agrees, “I think we are going to have to accept the fact that change is inevitable and its going to occur at rates faster than we’ve seen in ages and we are going to have to learn how to adapt”


The way producers did things in the past, may not be the way they do them in the future.. Pfeiffer says “Over the years the things we have believed to be true about cattle before may have not been as true. But they were the best tools we had at that time and we used them to go forward. The New tools that are being put in place will allow us to move forward at an even faster pace.”


The cattle standard is always evolving. Pfeiffer says “We are paying a lot more attention to the EPD numbers, and those are becoming more genomic driven. But in the same token we can’t quit collecting our phenotypic data, because that is what drives the genomic data, and those two have to function together. So its important that the data be reported and validated so the information can be better going forward.”
