Secretary-Manager Report by Ryan Barrett This past winter, there were a number of occasions where I was asked by dairy producers where they could find some Milking Shorthorns to add to their herd. Unfortunately, finding cattle quality pedigreed cattle proved more difficult than in the past. A couple of people remarked that “at least that’s a good problem to have.” In one way, I would agree: it’s better to have demand that we have a hard time filling than no demand and excess replacements around the country. However, it still bothers me when there is an opportunity to grow the breed that is not fully exploited. Being a breed with a small population that tends to be “scattered” throughout the country, there are logistical challenges in connecting dairy producers seeking cattle with existing breeders. Add to this that the majority of members have relatively small numbers of Milking Shorthorns and are in “growth mode” and thereby don’t have many, if any, animals to sell. At the Canadian Dairy XPO in Stratford, ON in early February, I had a number of very positive conversations with dairy producers who were very interested in our breed. Many hadn’t seen a Milking Shorthorn in many years and had no idea how far our breed has progressed in production and type in the last two decades. Several were seriously interested in buying animals in the next year or so. While this is very encouraging...we have to have quality animals to sell them! What can we collectively do to foster breed growth as well as open opportunities for individual cattle sales? Here are a few options that come to mind. •

Consider flushing one or two of your best cows and putting embryos in non-Shorthorn recipients to make more Milking Shorthorns! If you’re not in a place to start a flush program, perhaps consider buying some embryos from fellow breeders.

Use a little bit of sexed semen each year. I acknowledge that it has been difficult to find sexed MS bulls, but when a bull that you like comes along with sexed semen, snap some of that semen up

4


right away, as it likely won’t last! We are working with Semex to try and get a little bit of sexed semen created for each Syndicate sire. •

Set aside a heifer or two for the National Sale. This sale has been our best option in recent years to meet demand for high quality Milking Shorthorns for producers across the country. Even if you think you’ll be tight on replacements...consider consigning a good one and then buying a good one from one of your fellow breeders.

If you currently aren’t registering your cattle...it is the single cheapest option to increase the value of your animals. There is a growing demand for quality breeding stock, so ensure that your registrations are up-to-date!

The breed is at a stronger position than it has been in many years. Canadian cows are breaking production records in spectacular fashion and making headlines in the industry. Sire selection has rarely been better, and access to proven sires is also much improved. Fat percentages on the latest generation of young cows has improved noticeably due to the genetics being used. Last year’s sale saw sales primarily to new breeders. All of these are encouraging developments, but there is also more work to be done. Membership and registration numbers need to continue to grow. Hopefully, existing herds with Milking Shorthorns will grow the percentage of Shorthorns in their herd and we will continue to attract new breeders to the Red, White and Roan. Work also needs to ramp up in order to provide our breeders access to international evaluations and genomics. After a significant emphasis on fat percentages and type in recent years, I see a need to keep working on increasing milk yields so that our breed can remain competitive in a number of different production systems. Mature cows should consistently be producing upwards of 8500 to 9000 kgs of milk or more in 305 days with strong components, and this is definitely achievable. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those breeders that contribute their time to serve the Society as a Director, Committee member, local promoter, or simply as a mentor to fellow breeders. As a small Society with a limited budget, the time volunteered and the expense that many accept to be involved for the betterment of the entire breed is truly appreciated. I look forward to seeing many breeders at events later this year, and as always, I’m always available to talk and provide assistance as best that I can! 5


Rapport du secrétaire 2015 par Ryan Barrett, Secrétaire, SCSL Cet hiver, à plusieurs reprises des producteurs laitiers m’ont demandé où ils pouvaient trouver des Shorthorns Laitiers pour ajouter à leur troupeau. Malheureusement, trouver des animaux de bonnes généalogies est plus difficile qu’avant. Quelques personnes m’ont fait remarquer que c’est « un beau problème qu’on a là. » D’une certaine façon, j’aurais tendance à être d’accord – il est mieux d’avoir de la difficulté à rencontrer cette demande que de ne pas avoir de demande et d’avoir un excédent d’animaux de remplacement au pays. Par contre, ça m’ennuie quand même que, lorsque l’occasion de faire grandir la race ce présente, on ne peut l’exploiter au maximum. En étant une race avec un petit cheptel qui est « éparpillé » partout au pays, cela présente des défis logistiques pour mettre en contact les producteurs laitiers recherchant des animaux et les éleveurs existants. Également, la majorité des membres ont un troupeau relativement petit de Shorthorns Laitiers et sont en « mode croissance » et n’ont donc pas beaucoup d’animaux à vendre, s’ils en ont. Lors de la Canadian Dairy XPO à Stratford ON au début février, j’ai eu plusieurs conversations très positives avec des producteurs laitiers qui s’intéressent à notre race. Plusieurs n’avaient pas vu de Shorthorns Laitiers depuis maintes années et n’avaient aucune idée du chemin parcouru par notre race au cours des vingt dernières années du côté de la production et de la conformation. Plusieurs étaient sérieusement intéressés à acheter des animaux au cours de la prochaine année environ. Même si c’est encourageant... nous devons avoir des animaux de qualité à leur vendre! Que pouvons-nous faire collectivement pour encourager la croissance de la race tout en créant des opportunités pour des ventes d’animaux individuelles? Voici quelques options qui me viennent à l’esprit. • Considérez faire une récolte d’embryons d’une ou deux de vos meilleures vaches et transplantez ces embryons dans des receveuses autre que Shorthorn pour faire plus de Shorthorns Laitiers! Si vous ne pouvez pas débuter un programme de récolte d’embryons, considérez acheter des embryons d’un autre éleveur. • Utilisez un peu de semence sexuée chaque année. Je suis conscient qu’il est difficile de trouver des taureaux SL sexés, mais lorsqu’un taureau que vous aimez offre de la semence sexuée, mettez le grappin dessus immédiatement car elle disparaîtra vite! Nous travaillons de concert avec Semex pour essayer d’avoir un peu plus de semence sexuée pour chaque taureau de syndicat. 6


Réservez une ou deux génisses pour la Vente Nationale. Cette vente a été notre meilleure option dans les dernières années pour faire face à la demande d’animaux Shorthorn Laitiers de qualité pour les producteurs de tout le pays. Même si vous pensez arriver serré dans vos remplacements, considérez mettre en consignation une bonne génisse puis en acheter une autre bonne d’un autre éleveur. Si vous n’enregistrez pas présentement vos animaux...c’est le moyen le moins cher pour augmenter la valeur de vos animaux. Il y a de plus en plus de demande pour des animaux de remplacement de qualité, alors assurez-vous que vos enregistrements sont à date!

La race est à sont point le plus fort depuis plusieurs années. Les vaches canadiennes brisent des records de production de façon spectaculaires et font des vagues dans l’industrie. La sélection de taureaux a rarement été meilleure et l’accès à des taureaux éprouvés est aussi grandement amélioré. Les pourcentages de gras de la dernière génération de jeunes vaches se sont améliorés significativement grâce à la génétique utilisée. Les ventes de l’an dernier sont majoritairement allées vers de nouveaux éleveurs. Voilà des développements encourageants, mais beaucoup de travail reste encore à faire. Le nombre de membres et d’enregistrements doivent encore continuer à croître. Heureusement, les troupeaux existants possédant des Shorthorns Laitiers feront grandir le pourcentage de Shorthorns dans leur troupeau et nous continuerons à attirer de nouveaux éleveurs vers le Rouge, Blanc et Rouan. Du travail doit aussi être complété pour pouvoir fournir à nos éleveurs un accès à la génomique et aux évaluations internationales. Après avoir mis beaucoup d’emphase sur les pourcentages de gras et la conformation au cours des dernières années, je vois un besoin de continuer à travailler sur le volume de lait pour que notre race demeure compétitive dans plusieurs systèmes de production. Les vaches matures doivent continuer à produire au delà de 8500 à 9000 kg de lait ou plus en 305 jours avec de bonnes composantes. C’est définitivement atteignable. J’aimerais profiter de cette occasion pour remercier ces éleveurs qui contribuent de leur temps au service de la Société en tant qu’administrateur, membre de comité, promoteur local ou simplement en tant que mentor pour les autres éleveurs. En tant que petite Société avec un budget limité, le temps bénévole et les dépenses que plusieurs acceptent pour participer à l’avancement de la race sont vraiment appréciés. J’espère rencontrer plusieurs éleveurs lors d’événements au cours de la prochaine année. Comme toujours, je suis disponible pour jaser et faire de mon mieux pour fournir de l’aide! 7

“Apple” named Canadian Cow of the Year for 2014

It is extremely improbable that a dairy producer’s first purchase in a new breed would go on to be named Canadian Cow of the Year; however, that’s exactly what has happened for Shawn Koopmans of Picton, Ontario. Back in 2009, Shawn purchased a lot of embryos from David and Anne Kulp of Kulp Genetics in Pennsylvania. These embryos were from Rovin Derek Ali Accent-P, a Milking Shorthorn just starting to make her mark on the Milking Shorthorn breed south of the border. Fast-forward to 2014 and Koopycrest Mocha Ali Apple VG-88, the only female resulting from that embryo purchase and the first Milking Shorthorn in the Koopycrest herd, has been named Canadian Milking Shorthorn Cow of the Year after a tally of votes by Canadian Milking Shorthorn Society members. The last year has been memorable for Apple. After previously setting records for Yearling production, Apple established a new All Time Single Lactation Milk Record, producing 16,742 kgs of milk in 305 days in her second lactation (3x/day milking). This eclipsed the previous record by close to 1000 kgs. She also set a new Single Lactation Protein Record 12


with 488 kgs of protein in 305 days. In 365 days, Apple produced an astounding 18,613 kgs of milk, 768 kgs of fat, and 560 kgs of protein. Not satisfied with setting new production records, Apple would also win the Three Year Old class and would go on to be named Grand Champion at the 2013 National Milking Shorthorn Show in Lindsay, Ontario. For a cow to be named Grand Champion of a National Show in the same year as setting an All Time Milk Production record is unheard of in any breed! Apple’s first daughter, Koopycrest Logic Ali Anne, is off to a great start herself after classifying Very Good 86 in first lactation and breaking her mother’s 305 day Fat Record for Milking Yearlings with 407 kgs F (5.0%). Apple has been flushed to a number of different sires and a first choice heifer is selling in the CMSS National Sale on September 5th, 2014. Apple also has two maternal brothers who are proven sires at American AI units and she sits at #3 on the LPI Cow list in April 2014. Apple is sired by proven sire Clarefield Mocha, an Illawarra sire from Australia marketed by Semex Alliance. Shawn, who farms in beautiful Prince Edward County supported by his wife Justine, notes that Apple has always had a will to milk and has never had a problem keeping up with his Holsteins and Brown Swiss in his mixed herd. Shawn has had recent success in marketing polled and Red & White Holstein genetics with high genomic values, and looks forward to continue working with the Apple family and the Milking Shorthorn breed. The two other nominated cows for the Cow of the Year Award in 2014 were Oceanbrae Fawn’s Accent-P EX-94, owned by the Barrett Family of Oceanbrae Farms in Belmont, Prince Edward Island; and Lynmark Clay Equity EX-90-3E, owned by the Prinzen Family of Prinsville Dairy Farms of Bloomfield, Ontario.

President’s Report by David Prinzen, CMSS President Greetings from our family to yours. I hope as you read this that things are going well for you in whatever you set your heart to do. We have a great group of people here in Canada that are involved with the Milking Shorthorn Society, people who have a passion for the Red, White, and Roan. I appreciate the closeness that we as breeders and farmers share for our cows and our farms. I would like to thank all those who have hosted open houses and meetings showcasing Milking Shorthorns in everyday working clothes. It is a great way to promote to others the type of cow that we work with everyday. I would also like to thank our Secretary-Manager for his relentless promotion of our breed, and to our Board of Directors for the many hours put towards promoting and growing our breed. Many hands make light work!! I look forward to the Annual Meeting every year, catching up with others that we don’t always have time to chat with regularly. Hoping to see you all this year at the Laughlins and Edwards in July for our AGM and Field Day!

Country Report: United States by Junia Isiminger, AMSS Secretary Hello from your Southern Neighbors – the American Milking Shorthorn Society! 2014 brought another year of change in AMSS with our Executive Secretary Cory Salzl from Minnesota leaving after one year for other opportunities. I was hired to replace Cory with my start date being June 1, 2014. My name is Junia Isiminger and I am from Pennsylvania. I grew up on a Milking Shorthorn farm and my husband and two daughters now operate a dairy farm with Milking Shorthorns and 5 of the other dairy breeds. The 2014 Annual Meeting and National Sale was held in Westfield, MA in June. The sale had a total of 44 lots cataloged including six embryo lots. The 34 live lots averaged $2510, with the high selling lot being Innisfail Mega LexiET a spring yearling consigned by Innisfail Herd & Katie Bue, WI, purchased by John and Marjorie Kuszlyk, New York for $10,200. The six embryo lots averaged $2050 with the high selling lot being Othello x Purple Idalee RR Zeva EXP ET consigned by Taylor Graves, Kentucky purchased by Bartlett & Clark, New Hampshire. The 2015 Annual Meeting and National Sale is scheduled for June 17-20, 2015 in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. The sale is already showing an impressive lineup of lots. The American Milking Shorthorns had an impressive year in the show ring. We had four different Grand Champions at our four National Shows. The Grand Champion at the Northeast National Show was Innisfail ST Emily 864 EXP, owned by the Emily Syndicate – Bartlett, Clark, Rowe & Von Tungeln. Emily 864 EXP is sired by Innisfail Perfect Storm. The Grand Champion at the Eastern National Show was Kuszmar Megadeth Poppy owned by John P. & Marjorie A. Kuszlyk. Poppy is sired by Kuszmar Megadeth. The Grand Champion at World Dairy Expo (International) Show was Hard Core Rebel Rockette owned by Cor-Bloo Syndicate. Rockette is sired by Pinehurst Rebel 9th. The Grand Champion at the Winter National Show was Redien Acres JR owned by Jacob Baker. JR is sired by Bar-D Kuszmar Clay. The big win of the year for the Milking Shorthorn breed, was the honor of receiving the Supreme Champion Heifer at the All-American Dairy Show in Harrisburg, PA by Hard Core Premium Fire Maid EXP owned by Peter Vail, Hillpoint Partners, Frank and Diane Borba. The genetic evaluations were completed in April and with these new results 20


we are continuing to see our top animals stay in their number one spot. The number one PPR bull in the United States is the B Jurist son, Ecuafarm BJ Don Juan following by a change this year in the number two PPR bull to GE Kulp-Gen PJ Cowboy-ET. We are starting to see a resurfacing of more full herdbook bulls in the top 25 PPR bulls with 4 being full herdbook followed closely by 11 bulls being 50% Milking Shorthorn and 9 being 75% Milking Shorthorn. A Swedish Red also rounds out the top 25. Top full herdbook bulls include Kundes Golden Logic Adventure, Echo Farm Ted McCoy ET, Clayside Milk Money and Rocking WS Kourts Fredrick ET. The top PPR cow continues to be Kulp-Gen Jurist Anika-P-EXP-ET. She is a B Jurist daughter of Rovin Derek Accent-P and a full sister to Kulp-Gen Jurist Ace at Select Sires. She is the dam of the popular sire Kundes Golden Logic Adventure at Accelerated Genetics. The year of 2015 looks to be a good year for the United States Milking Shorthorn. We have recently seen interest in exporting semen to Ecuador, a surge of interest in our Native Milking Shorthorn registrations and purchases and overall interest from dairy producers to add some Red, White and Roan to their herds. Finding Joy in the Journey with the Red, White and Roan! Junia

Hard Core Rebel Rockette Grand Champion, World Dairy Expo 2014 21


Country Report: United Kingdom by Frank Milnes, Secretary, Shorthorn Society of the UK We have talked about the low farm gate price received by our farmers for their milk for many years and whilst there have been a few periods of relatively better prices the sad fact of life is that the overriding pressure on retailers is to reduce the price of staple foods such as milk to attract shoppers in to their supermarkets. The decline in the global price of milk products experienced in the second half of 2014 had a disastrous effect on the milk price here in the UK and shattered the confidence which was beginning to return to the industry. The EU milk quota system has been abolished in April this year and that again has led to speculation that other EU countries will increase production and flood the EU with milk and dairy products. The ongoing problems of TB control and the opposition from pressure groups to the cull of infected wildlife is another huge problem for all our livestock farmers. So all in all, it is difficult to remain positive about our dairy industry, but remain positive we must. We have to continually look at more efficient ways to produce milk and maybe that is why as a Society we are not seeing the reduction in registrations experienced by some other breeds. We are continuing to promote the Dairy Shorthorns at most of the major shows throughout the year and we are very grateful to our dedicated breeders who support the shows with some very impressive classes of Dairy Shorthorns. These shows are our shop window and allow the commercial producers to see Dairy Shorthorns at their best. Our National Show held at the Cheshire Show was judged last year by Neville Mueller from Australia and whilst entries were down a little on previous years due to TB restrictions in some herds, there was nevertheless some great classes for Neville to judge. He eventually chose as his champion a first calf heifer form the Collins Family, Churchroyd Churchroyd Peggy 19 22


Peggy 19 by Nejay Prince 4, a son of Drisgol Watzon. Peggy 19 went on to take reserve champion honours at the Great Yorkshire show behind her stable mate Churchroyd Gwen 8 by Marleycote Maverick. The Society continues to source new bulls through Red Cattle Genetics and recent additions to their catalogue include Winhall William a 100% bull by Brooksteads Tony which brings in a completely new line of 100% genetics. Two new blended bulls are Churchroyd Percy by Drisgol Madonnas Prince and Churchroyd Wildcard by Churchroyd Harry and out of the successful show cow Churchroyd Bronte Wildeyes 31. The two Churchroyd bulls are both available for export and have sexed semen available. We are finding that sexed semen sells very well, but the cost of taking it is considerable and there is only one company, Cogent, here in the UK who can collect sexed semen. Sales of Dairy Shorthorn cattle held up very well through 2014 with a high of £5250 for Nejay Pamela Mary obtained at the Nejay herd dispersal in November. In 2012 the Dairy Shorthorn Society decided to award a special memento to the owners of all animals achieving a lifetime yield of 100 tonnes of milk. Since then we have had 7 animals achieve this remarkable feat. It is very interesting to note that all of these animals have classified Excellent. Proof if needed that lifetime production requires good conformation. The Society’s annual photographic competition continues to grow in popularity and the winners go forward to the International Photographic Competition organized by the Australian Illawarra Society. It is excellent promotion for our own members as the results are published in our journal and great promotion internationally with the results published in Crazy Cow magazine. It is great to see photos of Dairy Shorthorn cows from around the world. The Dairy Shorthorn Society has its own Facebook page so please search for and like Dairy Shorthorn Society to keep up to date with events here in UK. With very best wishes to all our Dairy Shorthorn friends over in Canada and throughout the world.

Country Report: Australia by Lloyd Peters, Fieldman, Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia Greetings from members of the Illawarra Cattle Society of Australia. After a very hot summer, we are now getting a few nights when it is good to get under a blanket, just reminding us that winter is not going to forget to come. As I am writing this the, Sydney area is getting it heaviest three day rainfall for 15 years with falls as high as 500 ml and with cyclonic winds causing a real problem. Generally, many areas of Australia will go into winter with reasonable prospects. The Illawarra breed highlight of recent months was Wallumlands Sunstorm 8 winning All Breeds Champion cow at International Dairy Week, the largest dairy show in the Southern Hemisphere. Considering Sunstorm 8 is just a Three Year Old midway through her second lactation, it was a tremendous effort. She was bred by Terry and Ursula Tidcombe but exhibited by a syndicate of Glen Gordon, Ben Govett and Daniel Bacon. These three young men exhibit Holsteins, Brown Swiss and Jerseys, respectively. It took about six months negotiating the purchase before the handshake was made, and is the trio’s first venture into Illawarras. The Illawarra breed has performed very satisfactorily in interbreed competition over the last year. However, all breeds has have a large drop-off in show entries, with the Illawarra breed not to the same extent as other breeds. I have a catalogue for the 1960 Toowoomba Show where 55 entries were in the Illawarra Cow over 5 Years in milk. This year, Toowoomba Show had a total 54 Illawarra entries, with no other breed reaching the 30 mark. Of interest to Canadian Milking Shorthorn members will be the performance of a daughter of Oceanbrae Diamond Jack: Cheralyn Moira 38, bred by Peter and Cheryl Ardrey. Moira 38 won All Breeds Champion Production Cow at the Beaudesert Show, all the more meritorious with her being a just a Three Year Old. Diamond Jack is a paternal brother to Silverleigh Maxima, now in AI with his first crop of daughters completing their first lactation. Chairman of our young sire committee, Michael Tuhan, reports, “with a most promising production proof, the high24


light of the recent farm tour for me was seeing around 15 daughters of Maxima across several herds. They were an extremely consistent group of heifers, moderate in stature, but with plenty of spring of rib, good rumps, and nice udders. A common theme at all farms was the comment that their temperament was great.� The Illawarra Cattle Society recognizes the value of lifetime production and lists cows with over 50,000 litres of lifetime production in its Annual Year Book. Currently, the highest Illawarra cow still in production is in the herd of Braelee Pastoral, Mt Gambier, South Australia. In the last decade the highest lifetime production of 132,000 L came from Silverleigh Cindy 2 from the Priebbenow herd. Silverleigh Cindy, dam of Cindy 2, was also in the herd at the same time, also with 100,000 litres to her credit. The 2014 Illawarra Year Book list three studs with more than 50 cows above the 50,000 litre mark, with the Glenbrook herd of Ian and Julie Mueller, Glenbrook, Murray Bridge, SA having 56 Illawarras above the mark. Glenbrook maintains a herd of around 400 cows, 60% Registered Illawarra, balance commercial Holsteins, producing 3,000,000L annually. Despite some of Glenbrook’s high lifetime producers being up to 13th lactation, Ian maintains that he cannot carry cows that are a burden or a nuisance in the herd, so sound feet and legs are very important, as are mastitis cell counts, which must be kept down to produce a product of optimum value. Cow producing in excess of 100,000 litres of lifetime production is certainly a great milestone and has been likened to a human reaching 100 years of age!

Travels in Australia and New Zealand by Fred Barrett, Oceanbrae Farms This past January, I was afforded the opportunity of a lifetime upon being asked to judge at the New Zealand Dairy Event. I have long dreamed of visiting Australia and New Zealand, both for the chance to see great herds of Milking Shorthorns as well as being interested in the unique landscapes of these amazing countries. My interest has been fostered first by the wonderful reports by my son Ryan of his travels and the hospitality of the breeders he met along the way, followed by our relationship with the Wood family. Richard Wood spent several months with us at Oceanbrae Farm during his Canadian adventure and we were later pleased to have David and Johanna visit us in May 2014. The Woods encouraged me to submit my name for consideration as a judge for the Dairy Event, and I was thrilled and honoured to be selected as the Combined Breeds judge. My wife Margaret, a born and bred Milking Shorthorn advocate, joined me on this travel opportunity as my companion, photographer and recorder. We decided to extend our trip to include Australia and the International Dairy Event the week prior to visiting New Zealand. We would be in the international “neighbourhood� so to speak, so we thought it best to take advantage of this chance to fit two great shows into one big adventure. The IDW show is one of the most prestigious in Australia. It was judged by Laurie Chittick of the recently dispersed Lemon Grove herd. Numbers were slightly smaller than we expected, but the quality was good. A large percentage of the cows on display had significant Red Holstein blood, with the Grand Champion (and eventual Supreme Champion) by the Holstein bull AbsoluteRed. There is a discussion underway within the Illawarra membership on whether Holstein-sired animals can continue to be exhibited. It was a major win for the breed to have an Illawarra named Supreme Champion for the first time in the history of the IDW show. Before and after the show, we were happy to meet a number of Illawarra breeders. We combined some sightseeing with time spent at IDW as well as visits to the Llandovery and Riversleigh herds. The Llandovery herd, owned by Tony Hayes, 30


Touring the Llandovery (left) and Riversleigh (right) herds in Australia. was the Premier Breeder and Exhibitor at IDW. He has used substantial Holstein genetics in his herd, as well as some American Milking Shorthorn bulls. His herd demonstrated consistently good udders. Tony pastures his cows from irrigated paddocks, supplemented with free-choice silage. Riversleigh Farm, owned by the Tuhan family, was predominantly Illawarra with a few Holstein cows. In general, this herd had used more higher purity Illawarra and Milking Shorthorn genetics as well as some Swedish Red genetics. The Riversleigh herd was very consistent and high quality, with a number of older cows that looked quite young to our eyes. Michael Tuhan shows us his canal irrigation system for watering his pastures, and gave us an interesting insight into the water issues (and expense) faced by Australian dairy farmers. Following our Australian tour, we flew into Auckland on January 25th, rented a car, and enjoyed our drive to Rotorua and the fascinating day spent visiting the Thermal Village. We chose to travel the inland route to Feilding along Lake Taupo, through a desert and into the hilly farm country. We marveled at the many transitions of scenery along the way. New Zealand made a breathtaking first impression on us. Over the course of the two show days, I was challenged but excited to judge the Combined Breeds (Shorthorn, Guernsey and Brown Swiss) classes as well as All Breed Classes. The show started with the Two Year Old class, where I selected a Treeton Pingerly daughter entered by the Wood family as my class winner. This young cow went on to become the Combined Breeds and NZ Milking Shorthorn Intermediate Champion based on her overall dairyness and great udder. On the second day of judging in the Four Year Old class, I selected a very correct cow, Northbrook B Blitz, for first place. Her mammary system and overall refinement carried her over the second place entry from the Oliver Woods herd. 31


Fred Barrett judging at the 2015 New Zealand Dairy Event. In the Five Year Old class, I gave first place to Burness Emp Phil SOS, owned by Logan Kelly. This Llandovery Jinny’s Empire daughter exemplified all of the attributes I look for in a modern Milking Shorthorn: a strongly attached udder, correct feet and legs, and strength throughout. She placed over Oliver Woods HQ Sam, a well-uddered cow from the Soffe family, owing to her strength through the loin and rump. These two cows would go on to be my Senior and Reserve Senior Champion of the show. I was also pleased to name Burness Emp Phil SOS as my Grand Champion cow, a very deserving honour for a balanced dairy animal. It was a pleasure to judge a fine group of Milking Shorthorns, Brown Swiss and Guernseys and I was happy to find that Shorthorns deserved strong placings within these combined breed classes. As the show ended, we were able to meet more exhibitors in the barn area. Busy as they were in packing up, they were eager to share comments of the show and make connections for future contacts. We were then treated to an evening social gathering at the Wood home and a delicious meal. We also had a chance to talk with Alan and Sue Moore, which led to an invitation to tour their farm. David and Johanna, Richard and Pamela, Karl, Anya and the whole Wood family were gracious hosts over the next few days spent at Northbrook Farm. We finally got to tour the “run-off”, which we had heard Richard refer to many times, but couldn’t quite picture. We marveled at the numbers and the agility of the young cattle grazed on the run-off. The raising of bulls for beef is a contrast to the Canadian practice of raising and finishing steers. David and Richard were very patient with our many questions and were very willing to look up the pedigrees of many animals over our stay. It was so impressive to see the long parade of cows meandering up to the milking shed. We were happy to see daughters of a couple of our bulls, Plato and Ironman-P, as well as progeny 32


resulting from some embryos that the Woods imported from us. The sheer numbers of Milking Shorthorns we saw was a marvelous sight, since Canadian herds are generally much smaller. The milking shed set up was another contrast to our tie-stall barn, where we milk about 55-60 cows year round and have to house them for six months of the year. The Waiwera herd was another impressive operation, as we saw quality Milking Shorthorn cows hold their own in a mixed dairy herd, meeting the stringent culling requirements set by Alan. Seeing a rotary parlour operation was also a novelty for us. Discussions with New Zealand dairy producers revealed that we have similar issues in weather related challenges that result in requiring feed supplementation and transitioning over the seasons. We may have different weather, but similar goals in maintaining affordable feeding practices, maximizing grazing, and striving for production. This opportunity to judge at such a prestigious event has been a highlight in my own career as a Milking Shorthorn breeder. Not only did I have a chance to see some marvelous cattle, but I also made new international friends and associates that I hope to keep in contact with as we all advance our breed together. Thank you one and all who contributed to this great adventure.

2014 Field Day and AGM:

Kee-Muse and Knoxdale Herds, Ontario The 2014 Annual General Meeting of the CMSS was held on the morning of July 26th at the Admiral Inn in Lindsay, Ontario. Members from across Ontario and Prince Edward Island were in attendance along with Susan Lee and Sharon Vaadi-Fleming attending from the United States. Members reviewed the 2013 Financial Report. The Society had expenses higher than income by $2483 in 2013, due largely to lack of commission on the sale of animals through the Society as well as paying for two years worth of Canadian Dairy Xpo booth expenses in one calendar year. Most other income and expense lines were similar to budget in 2013. Income higher than expenses for Sire Syndicate transactions resulted in the total equity of the Society increasing by $561 in 2013. These financial statements were audited by a third party and were found to be complete and accurate. Secretary-Manager Ryan Barrett gave a presentation to member on the ongoing discussions between the CMSS and Holstein Canada on the possibility of moving registry services to Holstein as part of redevelopment of the Holstein registry system to be a multi-breed service. Estimates provided by Holstein based on our current registry volume show a strong potential for both cost savings for the Society as well as improved service provision for members. Seeing as most CMSS members are also members of Holstein Canada, it made sense for the Society to explore this potential option. The CMSS

Directors and Secretary-Manager have been part of negotiations on this subject for several years and decided that the question of changing registry service providers should be brought to members at the AGM. It was unanimously approved by those in attendance at the AGM to move registry service to Holstein Canada starting in January 2016, which is the soonest that the Society can leave Canadian Livestock Records Corporation. Ryan also provided committee reports as well as updates on upcoming projects. Susan Lee provided a report from the American Milking Shorthorn Society as the Past-President. Russell Gammon brought greetings from Semex, the major sponsor of the AGM and Field Day again this year. A moment of silence was also held in remembrance of Walter Goudy, a long term Milking Shorthorn breeder who passed away in late June. Following the Annual Meeting, members traveled to Kee-Muse Farms, home to the Kiezebrink family near Cannington, ON. The Kiezebrinks are relatively new to the Milking Shorthorn breed but have been active in exhibiting at the National Show in Lindsay and have a strong quality, growing Milking Shorthorn component to their herd. One of the highlight animals was Emadale Zumba Lulu VG-85-2yr, daughter of a past purchase in the National Sale. At Kee-Muse Farm we had our noon meal as well as a fun auction which generated funds to help pay for Field Day expenses. President Dave Prinzen also took this opportunity to present the 2014 Cow of the Year Award to Koopycrest Mocha Ali Apple, owned by Shawn Koopmans of Picton, ON. 2013 Production Award Certificates were presented earlier at the Annual Meeting. Following the fun auction, attendees traveled to Fenelon Falls to Knoxdale Farm, home to John and Julie Knox and family. John is a past-President of the CMSS and is a curent Director. The Knoxdale herd features a mostly full herd of Milking Shorthorns milked in a free-stall and parlour environment but with some pasture in the summer months. Knoxdale AP Jessy VG-88 was one of the highlights of the tour of the

cows on pasture, as well as a number of long-lived, productive cows. Following herd inspection, John introduced a judging class of heifers who were all sired by previous herd sire Lynmark KAO Otis. Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in a great social event. The Field Day continues to be a great opportunity to meet fellow breeders and see some great Milking Shorthorn cattle.

In Memoriam:

Walter M. Goudy 1929-2014

Walter’s life story began on a farm near Meaford. His parents taught their youngest child well the values of hard work, honesty, and Christian faith. The family relocated to a farm near Harkaway and Walter married the girl-next-door, Isabel Carbert. Walter promptly bought his in-law’s farm, located on a ridge of land known by the locals as “Poverty Peak.” This was an apt name, given becauseof the shallow, stony, gravel land. Despite predictions that no one could ever make a living off that land, Walter set out to prove that the impossible could be done using his instinctive creativity and sheer hard work. Walter was a long time breeder of purebred Milking Shorthorn dairy cattle. Merrittview cattle were known for longevity, hardiness and docility. A number of Canadian breeders have cow families founded from Merrittview cattle. One of the most famous cows bred by Walter was Merrittview Pepper K 5A EX-90-2E, who holds the lifetime production records for fat and protein among Canadian Milking Shorthorns. Her grand-daughter, Oceanbrae Pepper 2nd, is a past Canadian Cow of the Year and has progeny in multiple Canadian herds. Walter was presented with a Distinguished Service Award in 2011 for his contributions and commitment to the Milking Shorthorn breed. Even more associated with Walter than his breeding exploits were his gentle and kind nature. His sincerity and honesty were especially evident when selling cattle...he never wanted to sell an animal that he couldn’t be proud of. He derived great joy from his cows, his friends in the breed, and especially his family. Three of his sons have followed him into farming and his son Bruce is continuing the Merrittview herd. Walter passed away on June 26th, 2014 following a prolongued illness and a difficult surgery. He was the beloved husband of Isabel for 63 years. Loving father to Terry of Ceylon, Wayne (Sharon) of Markdale, Dale (Cindy) of Olds, AB, and Bruce (Martha) of Markdale. He will be deeply missed by his children, grandchildren, family, friends, and fellow Milking Shorthorn breeders. 44


Lynmark NYS Sandy the first 9E Excellent Canadian Milking Shorthorn

Lynmark NYS Sandy EX-90-9E is the first Canadian Milking Shorthorn to be classified Excellent for the ninth time. Previously, Sandy was one of only two Canadian Milking Shorthorns to be classified Excellent eight times (8E), a distinction she held with her dam, Fieldcrest Rubin Pearl EX-92-8E. Clearly, this is a family with excellence for conformation and longevity! Sandy is bred and owned by Tim Shearer and Irene Vietinghoff of Lynmark Farms in Norwood, Ontario. She calved in December 2014 for the 13th time and will turn 15 years old on June 1st of this year. She is sired by the American Milking Shorthorn sire Mericrest Now You See. Sandy has also had success in the show ring, taking Reserve Grand Champion honours at the 2003 National Milking Shorthorn Show as a Three Year Old. Her dam Pearl is a Six Star Brood Cow who also attained Grand Championship honours at Milking Shorthorn shows in Peterborough and Lindsay. Sandy is the 8th generation of Very Good or Excellent cows in her cow family. Tim and Irene note that “Sandy is living proof of what every dairy breeder aims for: superior type, low maintenance, longevity, and productivity - the pillars of profit in dairy farming.� Sandy has three daughters classified Very Good, including one of her most recent daughters, Lynmark Clay Sally VG-87, who was twice named Junior Champion of the National Milking Shorthorn Show in Lindsay, Ontario. 45


2014 National Sale Report The CMSS National Sale returned this year after a one year absence, and it became clear that there is a demand for high calibre Milking Shorthorn genetics! This year’s high seller set a new high water mark for the price brought by a high seller in a CMSS National Sale in the past three decades. Lady Grove A. Christie, consigned by the Naylors of Kleefeld, MB, sold for $5200 to the partnership of Oceanbrae Farms of Miscouche, PEI and Richford Farms of St. Marys, ON. Christie is a full sister to Semex young sire Lady Grove Conrad and is the #3 PA LPI heifer in Canada. Second high seller went to the consignment of a first choice heifer calf by Ecuafarm Kaiser Royalty or GMC Rebel Logic out of Koopycrest Mocha Ali Apple, the 2013 National Show Grand Champion and 2014 Cow of the Year who also recently set a new All Time Record for milk and protein production in 305 days. Consigned by Shawn Koopmans of Picton, ON, the choice was purchased for $4150 by Oceanbrae Farms. The sale averaged $2485 on 10 lots. This was the largest sale average in many years for the CMSS National Sale. Eight out of ten lots sold to breeders who are new to the Milking Shorthorn breed, which is very encouraging for breed growth. Animals and embryos sold to buyers in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, and Wisconsin. Thank you to the breeders who consigned such great genetics to this sale and to everyone who bid.
