National Director’s Message

By Bill Genasci

It appears we are FINALLY on the road to normalcy in our world of Holstein activities, starting with the Gil-Tex Stampede, through the California State Holstein Show and the Western Spring National Show in Richmond, Utah. The Stampede was a class-act from beginning to end. Great cattle from all across the country were presented in a beautiful catalog, managed excellently with active buyers present and on the internet. What a great way to start off 2021! The State Show, which included a separate Junior Show this year, showcased the tremendous quality of California cattle. The number of both Junior and Senior exhibitors along with total entries was amazing. What these events offered was the chance to get together and socialize with fellow Holstein enthusiasts, and boy, was it about time. The smiles, laughs, and hugs were in abundant supply. Thank you to the Teixeira family, the California Holstein Association and all the individuals who helped bring us together. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Holstein Association USA has faced many issues due to Covid-19. The headquarters was essentially shut down for many months, and travel was greatly restricted. Despite these obstacles, registrations, transfers and other basic activities continued as many employees worked from home. The regional representatives, after being grounded for a while, are now back on the road helping customers. Classification numbers are actually up, AgriTech is the only processing center showing any

growth, and Project Elevation (a complete computer rewrite) is progressing. Members should see significant improvements in online ordering during the second half of 2021. I would encourage you to check out the Marketplace Sires at www.holsteinusa.com. There are currently 10 sires available, and HAUSA is continually searching for more that meet the requirements. All of these sires are from deep maternal lines, and have very balanced profiles. From extreme type to high TPI, you will find something that fits your breeding program. The breeders retain ownership of these bulls, and they are marketed by Holstein Marketplace Sires. You can get more information by contacting Lacee Paulo (559-212-1937) or Katharine Correia (559-556-1410). The 2021 National Convention is scheduled from June 21-24 in Lancaster, PA. I’m sure many members from across the nation are excited for the chance to gather together. Congratulations to Haley Fernandes on being a Distinguished Junior Member Semifinalist. We wish her and all the other California Junior members the best of luck in their different competitions. If you have any questions or comments I can be reached at 209-7657111 or genace1@aol.com.

A Bright Future Ahead

New Junior Transfer Deadline

The first half of 2021 has flown by, and things are slowly starting to turn back to normal after the challenges of 2020. An in person National Holstein Convention and a more normal show season are examples of this progress. Thankfully, things look different today than they did a year ago! One thing has remained the same, however, is the continued enthusiasm our members have for Registered Holsteins®. Because of our members’ hard work, Holsteins are constantly improving and even making history.

Last year, the Junior transfer “received by” deadline was extended to July 15 for both heifers and cows. This new deadline for juniors will remain in place for the 2021 show season and beyond. The decision to extend the transfer deadline to July 15 was made because it aligns more closely with most other dairy breed associations. The extended deadline also allows Juniors an extra month and a half to purchase their show calves and provides additional marketing opportunities for breeders.

Bulls by Breeders, For Breeders

This is a “received by” deadline, which means that any ownership transfer not received by the Holstein Association USA office on or before July 15 will not be eligible for Junior Holstein Shows. Adding or dropping any owner after the deadline will disqualify an animal for Junior recognition. If you have a question as to whether a Junior ownership transfer has been completed, do not hesitate to reach out to Holstein Association USA customer service. You can also visit www.holsteinusa.com to check the ownership status of an animal or ensure the transfer was received by the deadline.

Behind every good bull, there’s a story. Whether it involves a favorite cow family, a team of people, time spent analyzing pedigrees and genetic test results, or even a little bit of luck, we know much hard work goes into breeding successful bulls. That’s why Holstein Marketplace Sires was launched in January of 2019. Under this program, bull owners retain ownership of the bulls, and Holstein Marketplace Sires coordinates marketing and sales of the bull’s semen. Holstein Marketplace Sires currently has a wide variety of bulls available, no matter what you are looking for. All the bulls in the program are deep pedigreed and come from time-tested family lines. Genetic information, pedigrees, pictures from the bulls’ maternal lines, and commentary from the bull owners can be found on Holstein Association USA’s website under the Holstein Marketplace button on the home page. When you purchase from Holstein Marketplace Sires, you are supporting fellow Registered Holstein breeders and adding genetics from time-tested family lines to your herd. Ordering Holstein Marketplace Sires semen can be done through your Holstein Association USA Regional Sales Representative, over the phone, or online at www.holsteinusa.com/marketplacesires. Once you have placed your order, the semen will be shipped directly to your doorstep. Holsteins Make History For many years, Holsteins have been known as the most efficient producers of high-quality milk. One Registered Holstein cow recently took this potential to new heights. Stone-Front Leader Hilda set a record for the most Lifetime Milk produced by a Holstein cow with her 2020 lifetime total of 460,720 pounds of milk. Hilda is owned by Andy and Lyn Buttles at Stone-Front Farm in Lancaster, Wisconsin. With this new record, Hilda has surpassed the total of the previous Holstein record holder that was set in 2003 by KOEPKE K00172291660. Known as the “Granny” cow, her lifetime milk total was 458,616. Twenty-five years prior to that, the record was established in 1978 by Breezewood Patsy Bar Pontiac. Her final lifetime total was 425,769. Andy Buttles says Hilda’s combination of production and type enabled her to achieve this record. Her success underscores the advances Holsteins continue to make in terms of production and longevity. Registered Holsteins truly offer breeders the complete package and will continue to make history in years to come.

Stay in Touch As the summer continues, we look forward to continuing to work with each of you. We are always here to answer any questions about Holstein Association USA’s products and services. Katharine also serves as the field representative for AgriTech Analytics (ATA), the second largest dairy processing center in the United States. Based out of Visalia, California, ATA is a division of Holstein Association USA and part of the U.S. DHIA system. Get in touch with Katharine or visit www.agritech.com if you are interested in learning more about how ATA can help improve your herds profitability.

Doug Maddox Memorial Senior Breeder of the Year Dwayne and Irene Nelson of Ceres, California are the recipients of the 2021 Doug Maddox Memorial Senior Breeder Award, the most prestigious honor a California Holstein Association member can receive. Dwayne and Irene were both very involved in 4-H and FFA. It was actually at their county fair in 1978 where they met and started their relationship. In September of 1979, they were married and Dwayne joined Irene’s family dairy, Duarte-Acres Holsteins with Joe and Mary Duarte. In 1985, they started a partnership with Duarte-Acres Holsteins. In 1995, Dwayne and Irene had an opportunity to purchase land from Joe and Mary and to start their own business. They wanted to give their children, Michelle, Brian and Brent, a more hands on opportunity and to learn the fundamentals of running a dairy operation. Nelson Farms was developed starting with 180 cows, with 75% of those cows being Registered Holsteins. Two years later, Irene and Michelle made a trip, along with Joe and Mary Duarte, to visit one of the most prestigious cow shows in the world, World Dairy Expo. It was on that trip that Irene and Michelle got inspired to develop their herd and to breed for show and type in hopes that someday they might be able to exhibit an animal at World Dairy Expo. Nelson Farms had already started with a great foundation herd from Duarte-Acres Holsteins, with dairy strength and tremendous udders that had a will to milk. As part of their journey to continue developing their herd, they purchased Ms R-Pine Milan Josie who was All-Canadian and Reserve All-American Winter Calf. That same year they also purchased a small calf from the Day Family, Tri-Day Jewel Adeen. She was eventually nominated Junior All-American Spring Yearling. It was in 2001 that Nelson Farms exhibited their first homebred heifer, Nelsons Estimate Liz. She was High Honorable Mention All-American and Junior All-American Winter Yearling and also Junior Champion of the Junior Show at World Dairy Expo. During that time at Expo, there was a cloning special and they decided to take the risk and clone Liz. Two years later and out of 18 embryos, one live March calf was born, Nelsons Estimate Liz 2-ETN. Liz 2 was Unanimous All-American Spring Calf in 2003. As a spring calf, Liz 2 was pulled out for Junior Champion line-up at World Dairy Expo. The following year was quite the year for Liz 2. She was undefeated at every show on the tanbark trail that year. In 2004, Liz 2 was Junior Champion heifer at World Dairy Expo,

The 2021 Doug Maddox Memorial Senior Breeder of the Year is the Nelson Family!

homebred to Dwayne and Irene Nelson & family. Liz 2 was Unanimous All-American Spring Yearling as well as the People’s Choice Heifer. Nelson Farms has had 20 All-American and Junior All-American Nominations. They have now grown to 650 milk cows with a BAA of 105.4, for their herd size they were a top BAA herd in 2019. To date, Nelson Farms has developed 108 Excellent and 772 Very Good cows. Herd Average is 29,938M 3.9% 1097F 3.1% 871P. Dwayne and Irene are the day-to-day managers at the farm, and they have eight full-time employees. Their children are all grown, married and have children of their own. Each of them have their own careers. Michelle Nelson Pedretti takes care of all the Dairy Comp 305 record keeping, as well as registrations and Dairy Compliance Water Records for Nelson Farms. In addition, Michelle also does some water and feed records for her husband’s farm. Michelle is married to Gino Pedretti, who is in a corporation with his family farm, Pedretti Ranches in El Nido. Brian Nelson, married to Erin, works for Select Sires as a Dairy Programs Specialists. Brian is in charge of the mating program at Nelson Farms and he also assists with record keeping. Brent Nelson, married to Caitlyn, works for Don Pedro Pumps. Brent assists at Nelson Farms when needed working on equipment and maintenance welding. Dwayne and Irene have retired from the show circuit for now. They still enjoy breeding a high-quality Holstein herd using bulls from Select Sires and Semex, with Michelle and Brian in charge of bull selection. Dwayne and Irene would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who have nominated them for this award. A special thank you to Joe and Mary Duarte for all of their love, support and for always attending all of the shows and events. Thank you to Joe and Mary for always believing in us. Congratulations to Dwayne and Irene Nelson for being recognized as the 2021 recipient of the Doug Maddox Memorial Senior Breeder Award!

In addition to Curtis’ success with his own herd, he also shares his passion for breeding Holsteins with young dairy enthusiasts in his community by providing numerous project heifers for junior to exhibit at the Kern County Fair each year. Curtis married his wife Stacey in 2012 and they have 3 children – Case, Tessa and Payton - that he also enjoys sharing is love of cows with.

Memorial Awards Cortney Borba Memorial Award Chloe & Chase VanderEyk are the winners of the 2021 Cortney Borba Memorial Award. The Borba family honors the memory of their daughter Cortney each year by recognizing the Junior Show Grand Champion exhibitor. Congratulations to this year’s winners! Chloe, 20, was a member of the Tulare FFA and participated on the Dairy Judging Team. Chase, 13, is active in the Pleasant View 4-H club, where he also participates in Dairy Judging. Both enjoying showing and are active on their family’s dairy farm, Eyks Holsteins in Tipton.

Brock Jarrett Toledo California Fitting & Showing Award The winner of the 2021 Brock Jarrett Toledo California Fitting & Showing Award is Xander Harris, who placed second in both the showing and fitting competitions held at the California State Holstein Show. Xander received the perpetual trophy donated by the Toledo family in memory of young Brock Toledo, son of Ron and Loreta, who passed away as a young man in 1996. Xander, 17, is from Richmond, UT and attends Skyview High School. He works on his family’s farm, Harris Dairyland and is active in 4-H, FFA and Junior Holstein. He loves participating in dairy judging and showing. “I hope to always be involved in the dairy industry and grow an elite show string. I also hope to do judging in the future, with the ultimate goal of judging at WDE,” Xander commented.

California Junior Holstein Show Contest This contest was started 3 years ago by the Holstein Association Board of Directors, in an effort to recognize and encourage junior members in their work with show project animals. Preparing, growing and training cattle is a year-round commitment! This year, the contest was a little different, as there were very few shows to attend. Contestants were asked to submit a picture taken during the month of November of an animal they were currently working with. Congratulations to all of these winners, AND to all of the youth who are putting in the work on a regular basis to keep their Holsteins looking and doing their best.

Junior President’s Message Hello, my name is Kylie Konyn and I have enjoyed serving as your 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 California Junior Holstein Association President. I am 18 years old, and a third-generation dairy farmer, from San Diego, CA. My parents, Frank and Stacy Konyn, are the owners of Frank Konyn Dairy, one of two remaining dairy farms in our county. My sister and I are partners in Aspire Holsteins and Jerseys, where we manage over 150 registered Holsteins and Jerseys. I have been an active member of the CA Junior Holstein Association for ten years, competing in Dairy Bowl and Speech competitions, attending the Annual Cow Camp, and attending numerous Holsteins shows throughout the Nation. I have also been a four-time participant at the National Holstein Conventions, where I was fortunate to work with other exceptional Holstein enthusiasts from California. As mentioned in last year’s California Holstein Annual, 2020 threw us many curve balls. This past year has taught us to cherish memories such as those and look forward with hope to a brighter future. This past fall provided the first opportunity for Holstein enthusiasts to exhibit their show cattle in nearly a year. Locally, some members exhibited their cattle at the Western Fall National Show was held in Richmond, Utah. A few members also took their cattle to compete at the North American Open Dairy Cattle Show occurred in Circleville, Ohio and the Midwest Fall National was held in Louisville, Kentucky. For those not involved in the show cattle world, the California Junior Holstein Association resumed the learning experience of the Dairy Daily Five and preparation for various competitions. Along with our annual All-California photo contest, the association found new ways to engage junior Holstein enthusiasts. If other juniors were like me and my teammates, we just channeled our dairy enthusiasm towards these other activities. The photo contests, creative milk jug contest, and judging activities allowed us to grow in new, creative, and innovative ways. It also gave some of us who may not have had these opportunities the chance to compete

and win some great prizes. Thank you to all the sponsors and donors for these new competitions. Unfortunately, we were unable to host a convention in person this past January, however, this did not prevent our junior board from spending endless months to prepare for a virtual convention. As we were unable to host our normal contest, the board was able to present new and engaging ideas for contests. New to this year’s virtual convention was a resume and interview contest and a virtual meet and greet. We were also able to host our normal folding display contest, cow awards, written exam, Breeder of the Future contest, and scholarships. We concluded our virtual convention with a zoom award ceremony. This spring our state Holstein show returned to the Turlock County Fairgrounds. New to this year’s show was a separate junior Holstein show. The California state junior Holstein show was judged by Graisson Schmidt of California. The Grand Champion of the show was Ryan-Crest Hnotic Elanah-ET, the winning 4-Year-Old, exhibited by Chloe and Chase Vander Eyk. The California State Holstein Show was judged by Ryan Krohlow of Wisconsin. Grand Champion wen to Ruann Doorman Jean-55162-ET. Doorman Jean also went on to win Grand Champion Honors at the Western Spring National Holstein Show in Richmond, Utah. There is a lot to look forward to this coming summer and fall. In June, a select group of California Junior Holstein Association members will travel to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for the 2021 National Holstein Convention. Representing California in junior jeopardy will be Layne Mull. The senior division will be represented by Hayley Fernandes and Jacob Fernandes. The California Junior Dairy Bowl Team will consist of Karley Rocha, Chloe Chapman, Mary Fumasi, and Sophie van Loben Sels. The senior team is comprised of Mykel Mull, Rachel Mancebo, Emma van Loben Sels, and Vicki Paolini. This fall will also provide new show opportunities such as the California Youth Ag Expo August 4-8, 2021 at the World Ag Expo Fairgrounds in Tulare and the Western Dairy Showcase set to be held August 12-15, 2021 at the Turlock County Fairgrounds. It has been an honor to serve the California Junior Holstein Association as your Junior President. I am extremely excited to see what our California juniors achieve this coming year.

Breeder of the Future Award Winners MARILYN HERZOG BREEDER OF THE FUTURE GIRL

BREEDER OF THE FUTURE BOY

The 2021 Marilyn Herzog Breeder of the Future Girl recipient is Kiara Konyn, Escondido. “I was selected as Young Breeder of the Future in 2017 and I believe that I have continued to develop my education, skills, and passion that would make me an excellent candidate for the 2021 California Junior Holstein Breeder of the Future.”

Travor Hath of El Nido is the 2021 Breeder of the Future Boy winner. He is a 5-year member of the El Nido 4-H Club and first year member of the Golden Valley FFA Chapter. In 2018, he was the 4-H Registered Dairy Outstanding Exhibitor at the Merced County Fair.

Kiara recently graduated from 8th grade and is a 7-year member of 4-H and the California Junior Holstein Association. She has attended every Junior Convention since she became involved, participating in Dairy Bowl, Dairy Jeopardy, Speech and Folding Display. She is also the current co-reporter of the Junior Association. She owned 59 Registered Holsteins; 29 are solely owned, with the other 30 owned in partnership with her sister. All but 5 carry the Aspire prefix. The herd is also recognized as a Progressive Dairy Herd with numerous cows in the top 10,000 cow list. Kiara has personally received the Junior Progressive Breeder Award from CJHA. “I believe that I am a very hard working, determined young dairyman. I have strived to excel with my herd of registered Holsteins. My entire life, I have been involved with my family at our dairy, which is one of only two remaining dairies within our county. I have had excellent mentors which have helped me to expand my involvement and encouraged me to be successful within the dairy industry.” “Participation in the Holstein youth activities has allowed me to further my public speaking skills. I have used these skills in many of my 4-H projects, not only in the show ring, but also in my monthly community meetings, participation days, project meetings, and in all of the organizations which I belong to. I have also had the opportunity to participate in many team building activities, such as dairy judging. All of these experiences have allowed me to grow personally, as well as increase my knowledge in not only the Holstein breed, but in all of the activities that I participate in.”

He is also a member of the CJHA and has attended Cow Camp and the Junior Convention, where he was a member of the Merced Dairy Bowl team and he competed in Jeopardy. He has also participated in numerous Dairy Judging contests. Trevor owns 16 Registered Holsteins, of which 10 he bred. Of the 7 classified cows, one is EX and four are VG. “I plan on continuing and improving the genetics of my herd. I have learned to work with my dad on looking at different bulls and mating them to my show animals. I also have spent a lot of time in learning to care for animals, feed them properly and get them ready for the show ring.” He has competed in showmanship at the Western Dairy Classic, Merced County Fair and California State Fair. He has also exhibited at those shows, along with the Western National Spring Show and California State Show. In 2020, Hath Beemer Selena was named Reserve Junior Champion of the Western Dairy Classic and was 2nd Junior, 3rd Open at the Western National Show in Utah. “I was ready to go into the 2020 show season strong, but many shows got cancelled by COVID. I used much of 2020 as an opportunity to prepare for future shows by continuing to produce high quality show animals. I have concentrated my time in improving my herd by continuing to mate my animals to high quality bulls and performing ET work on my animals. Some of my future goals with my herd is to win a California State Show and continue to compete highly at national shows across the country.”

CALIFORNIA ANNUAL 2021 » 51


National Distinguished Junior Member Semi-Finalists My name is Hayley Fernandes. I am the oldest child of Frank and Diane Fernandes, with two younger siblings, and land smack dab in the middle of twenty-three grandchildren, who keep our grandparent’s dairy legacy alive. I am currently a third year at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly), majoring in Dairy Science with minors in Law & Society and Agribusiness. My dad and his four brothers owned and operated three dairies in Woodville and Pixley, California since being passed down from their father. They cared for over 12,000 Holsteins and Jerseys, along with 3,600 acres of farmland for growing feedstuffs for the dairy. Five years ago, the brothers decided to split up the responsibilities as the next generation came back to the farm, and thus my dad and his two younger brothers took to managing the two smaller dairies in Pixley, and its surrounding farmland. On these two dairies, Legacy Ranches #1 and #2, we milk about 4,800 cows, a mix of Holsteins and Jerseys, both registered and grade, with my dad managing the 1,800 acres of farmland where we grow corn, wheat, oats, alfalfa and pistachios.

I continued working towards my goal of following one of my role models, Tony Lopes, in winning every division of the dairy bowl and jeopardy competitions and have nearly met that goal. The desire to succeed in these competitions has created in me the drive to be successful in my future. Reflecting back on the last ten years of my life, attending all of these conventions stands out as one of the most prominent highlights. I have continued showing, transitioning from 4-H to my high school’s FFA chapter. While my father may exclusively manage the crops for our operation, showing has allowed me to stay connected to our herd. As I became more involved in the Holstein Association, my herd grew from just replacement heifers to now consisting of eight bred and owned registered Holsteins and fiftyeight registered Holsteins that are owned in a partnership with five of my cousins, and my two siblings. In 4-H, I participated in dairy judging, but in high school, I decided to try the dairy product evaluation contest. Since coming to college, I have been able to join both the dairy products and cattle judging teams. My freshmen year, I was selected to join the national team for dairy products, and competed in Madison, Wisconsin. Our team placed 5th at the Collegiate Dairy Products Evaluation Contest, and I look forward to helping coach future teams. Because of Covid-19, I have only been able to attend a few collegiate dairy judging contests, including the Western Spring National Holstein Show in Richmond, Utah, where my freshmen team took 2nd place to Cal Poly’s senior team. I cannot wait for national shows to resume again so that I can get back to dairy judging before I graduate.

My showing career first started with our local 4-H in the summer of 2010. Following in the footsteps of my father and uncles, anywhere from seven to fifteen of us grandchildren would enter the showing cycle at the Tulare County Fair. Our parents made a general agreement that each of us would be gifted a replacement heifer annually to show and sell at the fair in order to save for college. My first heifer was a grade fall yearling Holstein I named Jenny and created a strong bond with that planted the seeds for my passion for the dairy industry. About three weeks into the summer, my family received some awful news; my brother had just been diagnosed with an abnormally rare brain tumor. I had to turn Jenny loose and realized I was not going to be able to see her daily as I had been. However, I believe that my longing to get to work with Jenny made our connection greater every time I did get to see her. Thankfully, I had very supportive uncles, and a caring Papa, who would bring me down to the dairy. It wasn’t always the same not getting to learn from my dad, but I think the experience made me stronger, more independent, and ultimately, strengthened my passion for the Holstein breed. Upon earning my bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly, I plan to attend law About six months after I took Jenny to my first fair, I received my first school in order to obtain my law degree and become an agriculture registered heifer, Fern-Oak Atlantic, to show at the Great Western lobbyist. I believe this job will successfully combine my passion for public Livestock Exposition in Tulare, California. This time around, my dad was speaking and debate and my goal of providing a voice for agriculture in able to resume teaching me showmanship skills and watch me show for politics. By working as a lobbyist, I plan to help agriculture by influencing the first time. I also brought Jenny to compete in showmanship, where policy and legislation that would positively impact the industry. I we again placed 3rd. To this day, I still have the mud-splotched, white firmly believe that agriculture needs more representation in politics, ribbon that my 11-year-old self proudly showed off, hanging out of my especially with fewer lawmakers having ties to agriculture. I hope to use my agriculture background and college experience to make a positive back pocket for everyone to see. difference on agriculture. In the future, I plan to consider running for With my interest in showing Holsteins, I was soon introduced to our local political office on the state or national level, to serve my community, and Holstein Club and the dairy bowl contests in fall of 2012. I instantly fell in again provide a louder voice for agriculture in politics. love, realizing all I had to do was memorize some facts, and I could soon be faster than the older kids. I will never forget the amount of fun I had at For personal goals, I hope to maintain my involvement in the National my first State Holstein Convention; I made so many new friends who loved Holstein Association, as I age out of the Junior Association. I know that cows as much as I did, and I was faster than anyone else on the buzzer. a great deal of hard work and responsibility is obtained through raising Soon after, I was counting down the days to attend my first national show cattle, and I plan to pass along those experiences to my future convention. It was my entire team’s first time competing on the national children. I also hope to follow the footsteps of my greatest mentor, Kirsten stage. During the contest, my team fought hard, but in the end suffered Areias, and help promote the junior association to dairy enthusiasts, and two losses and we became runner-up national champions. I think it’s safe help cultivate the next generation of future dairy leaders. to say, that anyone else who had studied relentlessly for nine months, I truly am lucky to have found the industry where I belong and am grateful made hundreds of flashcards and lost by a few points would have quit. If for the opportunities I was provided. I am so thankful I said yes to joining they hadn’t then, they probably would have when they came back again, our local Holstein club, because it has brought me some of my greatest after winning junior jeopardy the next year, to getting knocked out of the memories and friends, and I look forward to helping make that possible junior dairy bowl contest in two rounds the following year. But I did not.

Following his graduation from Chowchilla High School, he worked on the family farm until 1950 when he left to serve in the United States Army and Reserves until 1952. Upon his return from military service, Henry’s passion for dairy life grew, as well as his herd of registered Holsteins. Henry met the love of his life on a trip with friends to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk: which is where Dorothy DiSalvo caught his eye. The story goes that friends coaxed him to call out her name, which he did, and the rest was history. Henry and Dorothy (Hank and Dot) were married on June 5, 1955. Exactly one year later, to the date, their first child Stephen was born. Four years later they welcomed their daughter Teresa, and four years after that, Linda.

He would hold annual field days for youth to come out to his dairy and experience a day on the farm. That involvement developed into a 12-year seat on the Chowchilla High School Board of Trustees. It was at that time that he spearheaded the drive to build a football stadium, which is now dedicated in his name; one of his proudest honors. Henry had a deep sense of faith that he passed on to his children. He attended St. Columba Catholic Church in Chowchilla and was a member of the St. Columba YMI.
