t was an exciting summer in Michigan as we hosted the National Holstein Convention at the beginning of July and then enjoyed a great Michigan Dairy Expo. As a result, the champions of the All Michigan Holstein Show, the Great Lakes State Holstein Futurity and the Michigan Jersey Show grace the cover of this fall issue. See all the results from the Michigan Dairy Expo inside and look for the winners of the great Michigan State Fair in the Winter issue.

From the President’s Pen

Michigan Holstein Association First off, let me say thank you to all of the folks who worked tirelessly on the National Holstein Convention 2018. It was a team effort by so many people and as a fellow breeder, I am appreciative of all the work everyone put into making it a great event. I have heard many positive comments on the convention from people all over the country. The attendees enjoyed the resort and the Traverse City area. The four herds that rolled out the red carpet for the farm tours did a fantastic job of presenting their farms and the enthusiasm was just what we

needed in this time of low milk prices. I know that the states that are putting on conventions in the future are looking to replicate a couple of the events that we presented. The Cows 2 Careers event was well received, and Wisconsin will be doing a similar event for their Junior convention. Also, there were several positive comments on the Producer Row presentation and our Michigan Showcase. Looking ahead, we are planning our annual meeting in conjunction with the Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference in Frankenmuth in February, and we will be hosting a guest speaker. Look for more details on that in the Winter issue of the magazine. As we set out for fall harvest, I hope you all have a successful season and be safe out there.

Michigan Junior Holstein News Hello All,

From Your President

As we head into fall, the Michigan Junior Holstein Association reminisces on a very busy and exciting summer. Between the 2018 National Holstein Convention, our annual meeting, and planning for the year ahead, MJHA has been in full swing. After lots of planning, the 2018 National Holstein Convention has come to a close. We would especially like to congratulate Connor Nugent on placing first in the senior Division of the Prepared Public Speaking Contest. Also, Miriah Dershem and Kristen Burkhardt for placing third in the Scrapbook Contest. The Michigan Junior Holstein Board can not thank everyone for the time that they put into the convention and their hard work. Our annual meeting was held on July 18th, where we elected five new members to the board. The new MJHA Board is Kristen Burkhardt as President, Miriah Dershem as Vice President, Anna Moser is Secretary, Skylar Buell is Treasurer. At-Large members are Keagan Long, Lila Howell, Miriam Cook, Beka McDonald, Ashton Geurink, and Ian Black. Our advisors are Louisa Westendorp, Tera Baker, Lauren Siv-

er, and Renee McCauley. As MJHA looks into the future, we are planning various activities for youth in the state of Michigan. Our next event will be our second annual cheese sale. Keep on the look out for more details to come on our Facebook page! We plan on running the sale through the month of November. The proceeds from this sale will go towards the youth that attend the 2019 National Holstein Convention! All in all, the Michigan Junior Holstein Association is moving into the fall with a lot of new and exciting events coming up. Thank you for your time,

Kristen Burkhardt President MJHA

Notes From the Field

Max’s Memo

Leaves are falling, autumn is calling. Happy Fall!

Holstein Association USA is offering an opportunity for breeders to advertise Registered Holsteins® for sale via a page on the Holstein Association USA website. The new Holstein Marketplace provides easy, affordable advertising to help Registered Holstein breeders optimize their investment. Advertisements of up to 100 words will cost $25 per month. If the text is 101 words or more, the cost is $25 plus an additional 10 cents per word. For added value, breeders have the option of linking their advertisements to a genomic prediction or pedigree for $5 per animal. Links to a website or Facebook page can also be included in the ad. Advertisements will be invoiced to your Holstein Association USA account. Classified ads may be submitted by using the form found on the Holstein Marketplace website, www.holsteinusa. com/marketplace. Complete the form and email the information to marketplace@holstein.com.

in traditional milk recording programs but still wish to have their production information published on Official Holstein Pedigrees™. Known as TriStar AMR, the goal of the program is to allow producers with robotic milking systems that are recording both milk weights and component data to have the information collected by those systems flow into the Holstein herdbook database. This program is an extension of HAUSA’s TriStar program, a longstanding service for administering production records, cow and herd genetic performance reports, and recognition. The fees to participate in TriStar AMR are a $17 per month herd fee, plus $2 per completed 305-day lactation recorded that is loaded for Registered Holstein® cows, which covers data collection and processing by ATA, and loading into the HAUSA herdbook system. TriStar AMR is not included in Holstein COMPLETE®, and at this time, AMR records are not eligible for recognition programs. To enroll in TriStar AMR or get more information about this new program, call Holstein Association USA customer service at 800.952.5200.

From the Jersey Desk

Michigan Jersey Cattle Club Hello All,

Fall Harvest and the Fall show season is upon us! I hope everyone has a safe and bountiful harvest and safe travels to any fall shows you may be attending. World Dairy Expo is here and right around the corner is the All American Jersey Show. I am not sure if there are any members from Michigan participating in either of the venues this year, but if you are good luck! Its been a fairly quiet year for the Jersey Club in Michigan in 2018, due to the tough economic times and not being able to put together a sale committee for 2018, we postponed the sale. The board is still looking for volunteers to head up the sale committee if anyone has any interest. This past summer our neighbors to the south, Ohio, hosted the National Jersey Convention. I am not sure who from Michigan attended, but I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the convention, if any of you attended. The board will have met by the time you read this to discuss many exciting and possibly new opportunities that may arise for Michigan Jersey Cattle Club in the next few years to come. We will also be deciding on our annual meeting and get that information out to you very soon.

Fall 2018

As I said before, I wish you all the best in the fall harvest and hope to see many of you this fall at one the fall shows. Until Next Time,

Brent Moyer

President MJCC 989-553-4333

It Can Happen to Anyone You find a bull that has it all – top tpi, sound pedigree, high type – and you’re excited to see his first calves. Then a few of those calves turn out great… but the rest are just disappointing. How can great bulls and good cows produce disappointing daughters?

Because Mating Matters Linear can’t tell the whole story. Two cows may have similar linear breakdowns but develop problems for entirely different reasons, problems that steal profit from your pocket. Only aAa® Animal Analysis studies form and function of the entire cow to help increase your chance of getting more of any bull’s better daughters… and fewer of his disappointing ones.

aAa® Animal Analysis Easy • Effective • Affordable Helping dairymen breed better, more profitable herds since 1950

By Melissa Hart The 33rd Great Lakes State Holstein Futurity was held at the MSU Livestock Pavilion in East Lansing, Michigan on July 19, 2018. While the spectators looked on and chose their top five winning entries for the annual railbird contest, Roger Turner of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, made his official selections and placed them like this: 1. Star-Summit Fever Shirley. Star-Summit Farm, Byron Center, MI 2. Tumbleweed Diesel Droopy, Nugent and Burkhardt, Lowell, MI 3. Tumbleweed Brokaw Kendall, Nugent and Burkhardt, Lowell, MI 4. Westavale View GW Karisma-ET, Mooville Farm and Creamery, Nashville, MI 5. Green-Meadow Brok Honor-ET, Fall 2018

Green Meadow Farms, Elsie, MI 6. Green-Meadow Lauren-ET, Green Meadow Farms, Elsie, MI Once a fancy affair, with leadsmen dressed in special attire, the Great Lakes State Holstein Futurity holds a special place in a Registered Holstein breeder’s heart. “At one time, the Futurity was the most prestigious class of the show,” remarked Paul Meyer of Rod-er-Dic Farm. He continued, “Winning meant you could breed good cows, pick them out as calves, and get them ready, once you got to the show. It meant you were a pretty good cowman and it was quite an honor.” Renee McCauley of Tumbleweed Holsteins concurred, “Breeding cows that are productive and fit the mold of a show ring style cow is a challenge, but to see that potential in a calf and then

develop that calf to exhibit in a class at three years of age is a feat.” So, what is a futurity? The Great Lakes State Holstein Futurity was awarded for the first time in 1986 and created to stimulate interest in the breeding and exhibiting of Registered Holsteins in Michigan. A breeder can enter a calf with an initial payment and then is required to make three more payments to keep the animal eligible to show in the three-year-old futurity class at the All-Michigan Holstein Show. The entry money goes into the futurity purse and is awarded to the top 25 entries in that futurity class. This year, Star Summit Farm won the futurity class for the eighth time since its inception, “I enjoy entering the futurity for the challenge.” Baker continued, “It’s fun to pick and choose Continued on Page 17 15

the calves as they are born and watch them grow to maturity. And it’s exciting to watch them in the show ring, knowing that cow is a result of your breeding program and that’s very rewarding.” McCauley also feels the futurity is good for breeder involvement, “Futurity classes are good for breed associations as it stresses the involvement of the breeder from early on in a calf ’s life.” She continued, “The futurity is something our family has supported dating back to when the first futurities

were held at the Michigan State Fair.” McCauley grew up under the Nugentdale Farm prefix, and over the years they have won the futurity four times. This year they exhibited the winning junior entry as the next generation of the family carried on the tradition. She commented, “Continuing that tradition is important to our family. We also place a lot of emphasis on cow families.  Nominations for futurity eligible calves stems from cow families that we trust and are developing.” “Being a part of the futurity for as many years as we have been feels

great. It’s an honor each time we win. It’s exciting to see our long-standing cow families continue to do well and we only hope that we can continue to bring great cows to the show ring in the future.” Tim Baker continued, “Even if you have never entered in the futurity before, I encourage everyone to take a chance and enter. You might have a futurity winner standing in that calf hutch, you just never know.”  The 36th annual futurity class is now open for entries and more information can be found on page 21.

Holstein Youth Schooled in Careers at National Convention

By Bev Berens Youth Holstein enthusiasts gathered alongside adults during the 2018 National Holstein Convention held in Traverse City June 29 – July 3. Cows to Careers was a first-time event during the Monday youth luncheon, which featured recruiters from a variety of two and four-year educational institutes and a panel discussion covering topics from career prep to interviews. Jennie Koebel and Tara Baker organized the luncheon session. “This is the first Cows to Careers event,” said Josh Hushon, panel moderator. “An event zeroing in on career education in the cattle industry was a hole in the Holstein Convention, and is a perfect opportunity to talk with kids about possibilities both on the farm and in industry.” Hushon serves as Marketing and Communication Lead for Dairy and Beef with Cargill. A Pennsylvania native, he and his brothers were recognized as National Outstanding Young Breeders in the Brown Swiss breed. He is also a Holstein Foundation Trustee. Dr. Joe Domecq discussed cow-side opportunities as Hushon’s first guest. “Working with cows doesn’t mean you have to go back to your own farm or maybe you don’t even Fall 2018

have a farm to return home to after college,” Domecq said. “There are endless numbers of opportunities for working with cows and I get calls weekly from farm owners looking for good people.” Often, the work on farms will be in a specialized area like fresh cow, calf and heifer or parlor management. People with a passion for their work will always be in demand according to Domecq. “The biggest

complaint I hear from employers is about employees who aren’t passionate about cows and the dairy industry or their job,” Domecq said. Following Domecq’s report, a four-person panel of industry professionals contributed with information on topics ranging from job shadowing, interviewing, preparing for a career, selecting a career that aligns with personal interests and abilities and how to act during an interview. Tom Nugent, Director of Human Resources with Michigan Farm Bureau, Elizabeth Marvel, PAS with Milk Specialties Global, Dr. Brian Lammers, Ph.D., PAS with ADM Animal Nutrition and Carol Webb were the panel experts. A ride-along or job shadow is a good way to see a day on the job for a given career. Lammers recalled a ride-along student who thought that dairy nutrition was their appropriate career path. However, the person didn’t like science, and the ride along convinced the individual that another dairy related career would be a better fit. Marvel’s job often entails lengthy travel periods between farm stops. One ride-along guest realized that extensive daily drives wasn’t a good personal fit and that is a valid concern to consider during the job search. Continued on Page 26

During a break between panel presenters, Michigan Holstein Association Juniors held and recorded a dairy dance off to add a Michigan flavor to the Dairy Dance Off social media storm. (Bev Berens photo) 19

Nugent advised youth to be attentive and put away the phone during a ride along. “It’s like a mini-interview that could lead to future job connections,” he said. “Dress appropriately; bring boots if you will be on farms, or business-casual if making sales calls or in an office.” Business-casual dress, according to Nugent, includes a shirt with collar (no t-shirts), slacks or skirt, casual shoes (no sneakers), and a tie or jacket if appropriate. “It’s ok to ask what to wear, and the person you are riding with would rather have you ask in advance than to come unprepared,” he said. Job seekers need a professional email address that includes a name or initials. For example, john.doe@....com or jdoe@...com would be choices that present a professional image over an email prefix such as ‘partyanimal’ or ‘I’vegotabigtruck’. Social media will be one of the first places a prospective employer looks to find out about a potential employee. Social media platforms often provide more truth about a person than personal references. “It’s the little things that give us glimpses of the people we hire,” Nugent said, noting that vulgarity, wild party photos, complaints about employers and rants are there for the world to see and potential employers are looking. Webb provided guidelines for interviews. “Arrive ten minutes before the interview, do your homework on the company, its products and services, ask questions about the specific job responsibilities, and wait to discuss salary and benefits in a second contact or interview.” “A lot of high school students and parents ask if college is really necessary, and I tell them that it’s not always what but who you know,” Domecq said. “College helps build that network of who you know. Is it 100% necessary? No. But college and my job as a professor is to present doors to you. College gives you more doors to open. Whether you go to college or not, opening the doors is up to you, we are just here to show you the doors.”
