Local Dealer Takes Farmers
To Louisville Show
(Continued from Peg* C 3)
With the technology, machin
ery and educational opportuni
ties available at the National
Farm Machinery Show in Louis
ville, it’s not surprising that
many of the farmers who made
the journey are grateful for the
opportunity provided by Hoober
to experience the show in
“It’s a good opportunity,”
Hetrick said of the show, “and
it’s great that Hoober makes all
the arrangements. It makes it
easy for us. Plus you get to travel
with good people with the same
interest you have.”
“I think Hoober really appre
ciates their customers,” said
first-time visitor Matt Sowers of
Mifflinburg. “I think the people
Leadership, Services
Lead CAB Into 2000
WOOSTER, Ohio-New lead
ership and expanded producer
services describe the Certified
Angus Beef (CAB) Program’s
21st year. Jim Riemann became
the program’s executive director
in October, succeeding Louis M.
“Mick” Colvin’s 21-year reign.
Colvin started the program in
1978 with the idea of using reli
able standards to determine beef
quality. Since then, 11.5 million
cattle earned the Certified
Angus Beef label. In 1999 alone,
about a half billion pounds (493
million) of this beef brand
reached grocery stores and res
taurants in the U.S. and 46 in
ternational locations.
“Angus producers deserve
much credit for including con
sumer preferences in production
decisions by using the Angus da
tabase and carcass merit EPD,”
Riemann said. “Consumers are
recognizing the Certified Angus
Beef brand stands for high qual
ity. We need to intensity our ef
forts at helping retailers and
restaurateurs present to con
sumers so it becomes a destina
tion product.” Fiscal 1999
marked the most cattle identi
fied for the CAB Program, at
about 9.5 million head, and the
highest average carcass accept
ance rate since the licensing of
major packers, 20.4 percent. Its
493 million pounds sold marked
an average of more than 25 per
cent growth over the last four
years and more than 500 percent
growth for the decade.
Future program growth will
come from supply development
steps toward vertical coopera
tion. The formation of the
feeder-packer relations division
spurred the opening of a satellite
office in Manhattan, Kan., to fa
cilitate the Feedlot Licensing
Program. By Oct. 1, that divi
sion licensed 35 feedlots in 11
states with a one-time capacity
of 460,000 head.
Some 84 percent of the 8,000
feed cattle enrolled the first year
met visual requirements for Cer
tified Angus Beef acceptance. At
processing, carcass acceptance
rates ran 5 percentage points
ahead of the program’s overall
20.4 percent mark.
at Hoober understand what it is
to farm and what it is to be in
agriculture. That’s why they’re
leaps and bounds ahead of ev
erybody else when it comes to
service. I think they do this out
of a sense of appreciation.”
“It says a lot for the com
pany,” agreed Dietrich, who
was making his fourth trip to the
show with Hoober. “They have
the same values as we do and to
have them put something like
this together just makes you feel
like you’re part of their family.”
And while most were still
trying to absorb all they had
seen at this year’s show, it’s a
pretty safe bet that many will be
returning to Louisville next year
for the 36th annual National
Farm Machinery Show.
That higher rate came from
better identifying Angus-type
cattle, and should climb as
feedlots apply lessons from the
division’s commitment to qual
ity seminars. These emphasize
both proper product use and
management for higher quality
Progeny testing for carcass
merit enjoyed another record
year. The Carcass Data Collec
tion and Analysis Service col
lected information on 17,619
progeny by Sept. 30, compared
to 16,215 by that date in 1998.
Sire-identified progeny testing
climbed from 4,603 head in 1998
to 4,885. Certified Angus Beef
acceptance also climbed a full
percentage point for all progeny
and two points for sire
identified cattle.
The percentage of sires in the
1999 Fall Sire Summary with
actual or interim carcass EPDs
hit a record 71 percent, well
ahead of the 60 percent goal for
Looking at the program’s
overall impact, the international
division increased the program’s
global span to include 459 res
taurants and 495 retail stores.
Food Service grew the licensed
U.S. restaurant base to 2,800,
and reported 56 percent of its
140 million pounds sold as end
meats. Retail grew to sales of
279 million pounds through
more than 3,500 U.S. licensees,
including Albertson’s 475 stores
in 12 western states. Value
added products grew by one
third to approach 10 million
pounds sold.
In-store displays, recipe
cards, and promotions pointing
out that “life can’t have too
much flavor” steered consumers
to the Certified Angus Beef
brand. In eight major metropoli
tan markets, coordinated adver
tising programs conveyed brand
messages and the new, toll-free
tip line at 1-877-2-EAT-CAB as
sisted 1,000 callers in the United
States, Canada, Puerto Rico,
U.S. Virgin Islands, and Mexico
with information needs. A new
Internet initiative led to the cre
ation of a new Website for con
sumers,, to be
released in March 2000.
