A big Holstein welcome to Melissa Hart as the new editor of the Ohio News. Melissa comes with many years of experience, writing for numerous dairy and agricultural publications, as well as editor of Dairy Agenda Today and the Michigan Dairy Cattle News. Melissa called me January 26 saying she would accept the board’s offer as editor, and we were immediately off working on this issue. You will be seeing Melissa at many Ohio functions, so please welcome her to the Ohio Holstein family. I would also like to thank some folks who gave me advice and help as I began to plan for this issue of the News. Both Esther Welch and Barb Lumley gave me lots of advice, and Barb has called many of you about ads. One of our juniors, Hannah Dye, had reached out to me to help with the News, Hannah is a student at OSU/ATI with an agriculture communications major. She accepted the task of visiting GateWay Holsteins and doing an article for us. Thank you Hannah for a job well done. One final thank you to Diana and Amy, Mrs. Jason, Miley for all there efforts in putting together the AllOhio calendar. I really appreciate them stepping in to finalize it for us. Congratulations to all our All-Ohio winners and thank you to Coba for sponsoring this year’s calendar.

As I write my last column as president, I want to thank all past and current board members for welcoming me. Back in 2013 when I received a call for the nominating committee to run for vice president, I was excited and humbled. The association had given me the opportunity to work and call some auctions, so I felt like it was time to give back. This opportunity has given me the chance to meet a lot of really good people and create new, lasting friendships. I really had no idea how the association worked, but I slowly began to catch on. It is built on membership, sales, and The Ohio News. Speaking of the news, we currently just appointed Melissa Hart as editor. She is excited about working with the association and helping spread the word about what’s going on in your family, herd, and any other important facts. She will be attending the annual meeting in March so please welcome her and introduce yourself. I hope to see many of you at the convention sale, and annual meeting hosted by District 7. Dave and the rest of the sale committee have assembled an outstanding line up of registered Holsteins that will not disappoint. On Friday after the sale there are farm tours, antique tractor display, and an open house/dinner located at the Ohio Holstein office. There are also activities planned for the juniors. I have only attended a few annual meetings, they have all been a lot of fun. It’s a great time to get together and reminisce about the past year and catch up with old friends, and make new ones. Wishing you the best in 2017! Your Friend, 6

Ohio Holstein Convention Tour

Tour the Gate-Way of Holmes County Dairy 150 acres was purchased. In December 1992, Hal and Wayne dissolved their partnership and divided the 200 head of cattle and machinery. Wayne and his family own a dairy farm 4 miles northwest of Shreve. Both families still share a few pieces of equipment and exchange ideas. A new partnership was formed between Rod and his parents, Hal and Sherry Hunsberger, called Gate-Way Holsteins. Sherry not only milked in the mornings but managed all the farm records. Rod and Hal completed all field work as well as evening milking and chores.

The view of Gate-Way Holsteins As you cross into the rolling hills of Holmes County, a four-generation farm appears, Gate-Way Registered Holsteins. This family farm is located one mile south of Shreve on the Wayne and Holmes County line. Gate-Way is a 400-acre farm and home to 320 head of register Holsteins and five cross-bred cats. It all started in the early 1930’s on a 100-acre farm. Rod Hunsberger lives there now as did the three previous generations. His great- grandparents, Bird and Myrl Wells established the farm. While farming with horses, they milked 10 – 15 cows by hand. The milk was bottled in Bird Wells milk bottles and delivered to the residence in Shreve. Their only child, Eileen, in the mornings before going to school, would deliver milk in Shreve where she attended high school. In 1937, Eileen married Rod’s grandfather, Raymond Hunsberger. They took over the dairy in 1938 and Bird left to work at what is now The Ohio State Agriculture Research and Development Center. At that time, Raymond and Eileen milked Jersey’s and the milk bottles were changed to read Jersey Dairy. In 1941 with the use of horses being 10

phased out, the first tractor appeared, a Farmall - BN. Five years later after buying a cow carrying the Bangs disease, 21 of 26 cows aborted their calves. With the new pasteurization law coming into effect, the decisions to quit bottling milk was made. Raymond and Eileen started milking Holsteins and sold to Ideal Dairy in Wooster. The adjoining hundred and fifty-acre farm where the main dairy is now located was purchased in 1954. This farm included a 1949 three-stall elevated milking parlor, one of the first in the area. The original milk house is still being used today. By 1959, the herd had increased to 60 cows, so the parlor was made into a double six herringbone and a bulk tank was added. In 1967, Rod’s father, Hal and his brother, Wayne, bought the cattle and machinery from Raymond, Eileen and their older brother, Junior. During the next 24 years, they farmed together under the name Holmes View Holsteins. Always trying to increase the quality of their herd, they would purchase registered cattle for 4-H projects for Rod, his sister, Robyn and cousins Mike and Laurie. The farm not only grew in livestock but an additional

The next nine years were spent upgrading buildings and machinery. While increasing cow numbers to 120 head, a new heifer barn was built in 1997. A new double-eight parlor with automatic take-offs was constructed in 2004. In 2007, Rod purchased his parents share of Gate-Way and became sole owner. While renting the land and buildings from his parents that same year a 2,000ton bunker silo and commodity shed was added. With cow comfort being one of Rod’s priorities, a new free-stall barn was built containing wider and longer sand bedded free stalls. The feed ally and head locks made herd check and feeding more efficient and convenient. To eliminate the time-consuming job of hauling manure twice a week and with new environmental laws approaching, a lagoon and sand lane was constructed in 2014. Now manure can be custom applied to the 150-acre portion of the farm located 4 miles away. By creating a significant savings on fertilizer and sand therefore proving to be a positive investment. Realizing the dry cows needed better care, a new 36 stall sand bedded dry cow barn was built last year. To monitor herd health and milk

Tour the Gate-Way of Holmes County Dairy production, Rod finds the value of still being involved in every morning milking. His focus when selecting bulls is on strength, udders, feet and legs. But most importantly to this fourth-generation dairy farmer is milk production and components. At present, Gate-Way Holsteins consists of 200 acres of corn, 70 acres of hay, 20 acres of wheat including 40 acres of pasture for older heifers. This farming operation is milking 172 cows, three times a day. The rolling herd average is 28,895 pounds of milk, 1,061 of butter fat and 898 pounds of protein. Cows are currently averaging 92 pounds of milk. As Rod looks to his future in the dairy business, he continues to invest in solid milk production. On a personal side, he is looking forward to a summer wedding to his fiancé, Bobbi Schulz, who works for the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Bobbi having been raised in rural central Ohio enjoys feeding calves and the adventure and beauty of the farm. She is found in the summer months maintaining the many yards on the farm and registers all calves year around. Rod says he owes a lot to the previous generations. Gate-Way is a result of four generations of hard work, persistence,

Hunsberger Family: From left: Sherry and Hal Hunsberger, Rod Hunsberger and Bobbi Schulz and dedication. Over the years, this family has seen many challenges but recognizes the abundance of God’s blessings. Hal is still actively involved in the farm as well as Sherry still manages the farm records which continues to be a challenge with today’s milk prices. Rod has continued his father’s main phi-

losophy for a successful, stable family business. “It’s nice to have a good-looking herd of cows but milk production is what pays the bills” The Hunsberger’s are looking forward to seeing you on the tenth of March.

Explore the farming gear of yesteryear By Tom Thorbahn Ron Grosjean of rural Wooster developed a passion for farm tools and farm equipment while growing up on the family farm in Moreland, Ohio. His family moved to Wayne County from Fredericktown when he was about a year old. Growing up on the farm he did the usual chores, helping his father with the farming. He attended Franklin Township Elementary School, and graduated from Triway High School in 1969. Following graduation he was drafted into the military, but received an immediate deferment, to be the sole provider for his family, upon the tragic death of his father in a farm tractor accident.

In 1971 Ron started driving truck for the Ken Miller Oil Field and Supply Company. Today he is a supervisor for the Ken Oil Production Company, Wooster taking him to oil fields in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and surrounding states. Ron also raises sheep and beef cattle. His real passion was learning about the many tools and equipment used around the farm. He was particularly intrigued by those with metal parts forged over open fires of blacksmiths without the benefit of the specific engineering that is available today. Thus his hobby began, collecting old farm tools and equipment. His private collection of antique and restored farm equipment, tools, and OHIO NEWS

tractors are housed in a 36,000 square foot museum at his farm on State Route 3 just about one mile south of the Ohio Holstein office. Today Ron wears many hats, oil industry worker, livestock producer, fair board member, collector and historian. You'll be able to view his collection as part of our farm tours on March 10th following the Ohio Holstein Convention Sale.

From Your Editor By Melissa Hart

Hello Ohio! As I write this we are putting the finishing touches on this issue and I’m in a panic to make sure it gets out to all of you on time for the Convention Sale advertisers! My new laptop has decided to lock up and so at the moment I have two computers sitting on my desk with notes and old copies of the Ohio News spread all over to make sure I don’t miss a thing!

Until then, let’s look ahead at the year to come with the convention, the Spring Dairy Expo, a trip to the west coast for the National Holstein Convention, the Ohio State Fair, district shows and the fall shows and sales. Let’s make this a great year together as we promote the great genetics bred, developed and sold by Ohio Registered Holstein breeders! I want to thank all of those who have advertised in this issue. Your trust in us to promote your genetics is valued and appreciated! You are awesome! If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints, let me know! Call or text me at 517-398-1957 or email farm.writer@hotmail.com.

After this issue is put to bed, I will then take a breath and think about the unlimited possibilities of the future of the Ohio News! It’s an exciting future for Ohio Holstein breeders as you not only prepare to celebrate a century of success but also we are knocking on the door of hosting the National Holstein Convention in 2021. Don’t fool yourself, that is right around the corner and it will be here before you know it!

District 7 & 8 Holstein Club Annual Meeting Reports District 7 Holstein Club Approximately 70 members gathered at Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen in Mt. Hope, Ohio on January 16, 2017 for the District 7 annual meeting. President Jeremy Bauman welcomed everyone and gave the invocation prior to a wonderful meal. Treasurer Jason Miley had an upbeat financial report as district activities netted a $180.59 profit for the 2016 calendar year. Jeremy Bauman reported that the 2017 show is tentatively scheduled for Saturday July 8th, 2017 with a 5pm start (Showmanship first). The 2016 show was a tremendous success; the night show format along with increased cash prizes for the champions attracted more exhibitors and, and made it a more exciting event. Lisa Mangun shared details with the crowd about the upcoming state convention that will be hosted by District 7 on Friday, March 10 through Saturday, March 11, 2017. Lisa encouraged everyone to participate in the convention and help out when called upon—there will be lots of opportunities! Paul Haskins reported that membership dues need to be paid by 2/1/17 in order for the district to hopefully receive the maximum rebate. The Juniors are again selling raffle tickets ($5 apiece or 5 for $20) for a half grooming chute, show supplies, and a $500 spring sale voucher. The prizes are all donated, so 100% of the proceeds will help the juniors pay for their upcoming trip to the National Holstein Convention (Bellevue, Washingtion). Made possible by the generosity of many local vendors, an outstanding selection of door prizes were awarded at the end of the meeting.

2017 Spring Dairy Expo Entry Rules Ownership: To be eligible for competition, whether single or in-groups, animals must be entered exactly as ownership appears on the registration certificate. The registration certificate showing the most recent date of activity will be considered official. Registration certificates must be available for check-in by the breed superintendent at the time of arrival. All registration papers will be held until the completion of the show. Transfers: Each breed will handle the ownership rules according to the rules established by the National and/or State Association. The rules by breed are listed below. If you need further clarification, please contact your State Breed Association contacts. Ayrshire - Junior animals must be owned solely by junior or in partnership with the juniors name on the official registration certificate. All animals must have an official certificate no showing on transfer papers will be allowed. Brown Swiss - The animal must be registered in the name of the Exhibitor. The paper must be an official paper from the Brown Swiss Cattle Breeder’s Association. The recorded ownership must show in the sole ownership of the exhibitor or partnership comprised of only BSA Junior Members (adult-junior and family farm partnerships are not acceptable). If joint ownership, one of the owners must be declared the exhibitor during check-in. Awards will be presented as one unit, to all owners equally. Junior members who have an animal on a national lease program can participate in the national junior show. They will need to bring the lease paper along with the registration paper. The owner of the leased animal will receive recognition as the owner in the open show. Guernsey - Positive, readable ID must be available by sketch or tattoo. No transfers allowed. Holstein - This is a designated Spring National Holstein Open and Junior Show and will follow Holstein USA Open & Junior Show Ring Policy; which is available online at: http://www.holsteinusa.com/pdf/print_material/show_program.pdf. All Holsteins must be a minimum of 87% as indicated by their registration certificate. Holsteins can show on a signed transfer as long as the paper, signed transfer and transfer fees are turned into the breed representatives.  Premier Exhibitor & Breeder Points – Point value system has been lowered on Dry cows to a 10-point scale. All other senior females will accumulate points on the 20-point system, junior females and dry cows will be on the 10-point system.  Premier Exhibitor: For premier exhibitor calculations the exhibitor of an animal will be as ownership appears on the registration certificate. 1. Where a herd is registered in the names of different members of a family and where the herd is one unit, all entries may be considered as the result of one exhibitor. 2. Partnership or syndicate animals will be calculated as exhibited by the partnership or syndicate and not by any single partner or syndicate member.  Breeder Defined – The owner of the dam at the time of service shall be considered the breeder of the animal. Where a herd is registered in the names of different members of a family and where the herd is one unit, all entries may be considered as exhibits of one breeder. Jersey - Showing on transfers will NOT be allowed. Exhibitors must have an official registration certificate. Milking Shorthorn – Showing on transfers will be allowed for animals purchased within 30 days of the show. All animals must show in the proper class. Junior animals must list the junior’s name, for example, John Doe of Doe Farms. The national black hair rule will apply. Substitutions: Substitutions are allowed in the same class with the same-recorded owner or herd unit of the SAME breed. In addition, ONE open substitution (out of class) will be allowed per herd unit of the SAME breed. Once an animal has been substituted, the original animal entered shall be eliminated from the competition. Dress Code: ALL EXHIBITORS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR WHITE TROUSERS or white skirts and official harness when leading animals in the ring. Violators will not be permitted to enter the ring. Premiums: Premiums for 2017 will be cash awards that are presented in each class. The monetary award for all breed grand champions ($100) and breed junior champions ($50) will be presented during the supreme champion class at the conclusion of the show. If an animal chooses not to participate in Supreme Champion class the monetary award will be forfeited. These champion awards are sponsored annually by the Ohio Purebred Dairy Cattle Association. Quality Assurance Testing   

The Ohio Department of Agriculture has indicated that the OH Livestock Show Reform Act signed in June 1995; which includes all county and independent fairs, the Ohio State Fair, and all preview or jackpot shows or any exhibition over 36 hours in duration or has livestock whose origin is not OHIO, states Quality Assurance testing will be mandatory in the year 2017. In compliance with this Statute we are held to allow testing to be done at the SDE 2017. Quality Assurance testing means Ohio Department of Agriculture has the option of taking milk samples, ultra sounding udders, at the request of breed officials and visually checking for excessive manipulation of hair.

Exhibitors are responsible for being ringside for the class. The announcer will make every effort to keep the barn informed of show progress. However, show management is NOT responsible if you miss a class. OHIO NEWS

Queen’s Corner By Ella Jackson

Hello allI hope you all are enjoying the relatively mild winter we have had thus far, as I am sure you have all taken full advantage of being able to get more done in the barn with the warmer temperatures. From my experience winter is not a popular season among dairy farmers, and rightfully so‌ waterers freeze over, milk trucks have trouble keeping their schedules, and everyone is a little less excited to go out to do chores when five layers stand between us and the cows (well... maybe not everyone gets cold enough to layer up as well as I do). That being said, I think winter is an important season for farmers. With the hectic push of making hay, planting, filling silo, construction (etc., etc.)

reserved for the other three seasons, winter gives us all a small relief from our busy schedules. Sure, there are always barns to clean and cows to care for, but the extra time here and there is more than welcomed as we prepare ourselves again for a busy upcoming year. This winter I have been working as sale chairman to prepare for the Buckeye Classic sale that Buckeye Dairy Club puts on every year during Spring Dairy Expo. I am excited to be bringing back the Holstein sale this year after many years of not including them in the sale. I hope you all are able to support the Holstein sale in some way so we can continue to have Holsteins represented at the sale in the years to come! I appreciate those of you that have offered your advice or consigned to the sale in order to make it a success. It has been a pleasure being Ohio Holstein Queen for the past year. I look forward to a lifetime working with dairy cattle and all of the great people in the dairy industry, including all of you I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with over the past year. I wish you all a blessed 2017 and hope you keep your feet under you on the ice the rest of this winter!

Just For Juniors By Emma Mathews, Ohio Junior Holstein Association President

Hello, Juniors! I am excited to see everyone at the Annual Meeting next month! We have several activities planned for those who will be attending: We will be going to Acres of Fun in Wooster on Friday night to roller skate, play video games and other arcade activities...and of course, EAT. We will be meeting at 7:00 PM. On Saturday morning from 8 to 10:30 AM, the Juniors who are attending National Convention will have time to work on Ohio’s banner entry, digital scrapbook and other materials to get ready for the competitions. Those Juniors who will be participating in the speech contest are invited to give their speech during the annual luncheon. We will have our regular Junior Business Meeting at 10:30 AM to elect our 2017 Board of Directors and Officers. We will also be selecting awards for the Ohio State Fair, discussing future Junior activities and other opportunities for the rest of the year. I encourage all Juniors to attend the meeting, and also invite parents to sit in, as well. In December, we had a Junior meeting in Plain City. Thank you to Select Sires for allowing us to use their meeting facility for our meeting! At that time, we decided on awards for the Spring Dairy Expo, discussed travel arrangements for the National Convention and reviewed the 2017 awards available for Ohio Junior members. For those that submitted entries for the Ohio Memorial Award, the Distinguished Youth Member Award, Ohio Junior Production Awards, Ohio Holstein Queen, the Ohio Holstein Women’s Scholarship and the Esther Welch Ag Communications Scholarship, good luck! Just making the commitment to apply for these opportunities is an accomplishment. The Juniors are still selling raffle tickets for the $500 voucher to be used at the Convention Sale or Buckeye Dairy Club Sale, the aluminum 1/2 grooming chute, bucket of show supplies and a set of DeLaval clippers. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. We will draw the winner just prior to the start of the Ohio Holstein Convention Sale on March 10th. This raffle is 100% profit for the Junior Association and proceeds for tickets sold by Juniors going to the National Convention will go towards their trip expenses. I would also like to thank Lisa Mangun, Jackie Bickel and

Diana Miley for coordinating the lunch stand at the Fall Sale in Wooster. We raised around $400 for the Juniors... and thank you for everyone that ate and made donations that day, as well! In closing, I’d like to challenge all the Juniors who are coming to the State Convention with their parents to not only attend the Junior activities, but to also bring a friend who is not yet active as a member of the Junior Association. Not only do we have a lot of fun when we get together, but we also have the opportunity to make a difference in our State Association. See you in Wooster! Emma Mathews, President 513-300-7291 or emmmalou22@gmail.com

In Remembrance of (Uncle) Fred Johnson Usually our ads are all about cows, flushes, ET’s., etc. I had every intention of updating everyone on our last classification results and telling about some of the exciting ET’s we have had since our last issue. That all changed, Saturday, February 4, 2017. It was that day when our Uncle Fred Johnson died at the age of 69. Fred was a great man to all who knew him! He had various occupations in his life, from teacher to coach, principal to superintendent. He was very successful at those jobs too, but the job I remember him doing the most is helping my grandpa and dad and uncle milk cows. I was very young but I remember it pretty clear! You see Fred was always in a good mood and that made everyone around him in a better mood at the very least. He was helping them milk in the old stanchion barn in the mid-1980s, which puts me at 5-6 years old. I don’t have any particular story, (I wish I did) but just a picture in my mind of him smiling while dipping the teats or hanging a milker! It makes me smile just thinking about it! I’ll miss talking Ohio State football with him and hearing his unique laugh, but mostly that huge smile!! Fred IS a husband of one, father of two, uncle and brother to many and grandfather of two! Our hearts go out to Kathy,Travis, Wesley, Nikki and granddaughters Scarlett and Savanah. Fred always had a full plate and a hunger for more! Rest in Peace. ~ Adam Whiteleather

You Asked.

GENEX Delivered. A Global Index Designed for Commercial Producers The Ideal Commercial Cow (ICC$) index uses real‑time economic indicators and science‑based genetic principles to address the needs of commercial dairy producers. The index incorporates data‑driven genetic evaluations and research from multiple sources.

ICC$ Compared to LNM$ The ICC$ index puts more emphasis on health and fertility selection as well as longevity. Specifically, ICC$ leads to improved female fertility as well as fewer health events through inclusion of the GENEX proprietary health traits – Subclinical Ketosis, Metritis and Foot Health.

ICC$ Compared to GTPI ® The ICC$ index stops the trend for increased stature and focuses on efficient cows. Selection is for cows with optimal body condition and problem‑free transition periods. Additionally, the ICC$ index provides greater improvement in health and fertility traits while focusing on longevity.

“Functional, durable and invisible – that is what I’m looking for. That is what ICC$ selection provides.” Darin Dykstra, Dykstra Dairy, Maurice, Iowa
