From The Executive Director By Tom Thorbahn As I sit down to write this, I’m reminded that fall is just around the corner. Football, harvest, and the fall shows will soon be upon us. The National Convention held in Bellevue, Washington was a great event for all who attended. Congratulations to Steve Moff, the new national director for Region Three. A big thank you to the Washington members for all their efforts in hosting a great convention. The Convention 2021 Steering Committee has made a recommendation to the National Association to hold the 2021 National Convention in Ohio in Canton at the Football Hall of Fame. The folks there seem very dedicated to helping us provide a great convention. We still must get approval from the National Association before we can move forward. We will begin to form committees, please consider how you can help when asked. We had a great Holstein show at the State Fair the last of July. Congratulations to all of the exhibitors for the superb quality of our State Fair show. A big thank you to Mary Lou Topp for putting together a great 60th Futurity, every exhibitor was a winner with all she put together for the special celebration. The futurity this year was dedicated in memory of John Spreng. There will be a deadline this year in regard to the All-Ohio calendar. To get the calendar out to the membership on a more timely manner, we are requesting that all photos of the All5
Ohio winners must be in the office by December 31, 2017. If you are taking photos this fall that you want to use, please keep this date in mind, particularly if you’re having photos taken at Louisville. Photos of animals that are not at the office by the deadline will not be the calendar, only the animals name and the owner. The Breed Improvement Committee is planning a Fall Tour this fall. It will be hosted by Lingle Holsteins in Wooster on November 11th. We look forward to seeing you there.
Good luck to everyone showing at the fall shows and have a safe harvest!

A Message From The President
By Paul Haskins
“Autumn . . . the year’s last, loveliest smile.” --William Cullen Bryant When I think of fall, I think of warm and sunny afternoons, cool nights, and the changing of nature’s colors. Fall is a busy season, whether it be bringing in the harvest or preparing for winter, but also mixed in are some of my favorite activities of the year, whether it be attending a riveting football game on a crisp fall afternoon, or taking in all of the sights and sounds of World Dairy Expo while munching on a grilled cheese sandwich. The Ohio Holstein Association also continues to bustle with activity this fall. We are extremely pleased to be teaming up with Dairy Agenda Today and including the Cow Nation publication as part of this magazine issue, and we welcome new advertisers and readers alike! On Saturday, November 11, the 2017 edition of the Ohio Holstein Fall Tour will be hosted by the Lingle family of Lingle Holstein Farms Ltd. In Wooster. Featured will be outstanding cows, facilities, and a short talk by Lyle Ruprecht of Gerber Feeds. Lyle is an accomplished nutritionist who feeds Lingle Holsteins and many of Ohio’s other top herds. For more information on the day’s activities, please see the ad on page 21. On Saturday, November 18, Dave Gunkelman and his fine crew will be hosting the Ohio Holstein Fall Sale at the Wayne County fairgrounds in Wooster. The summer sale featured a top quality lineup, and I’m sure the fall sale will not disappoint. For more information on the sale, please see the ad on page 30. Be sure to take a few minutes from your busy schedule to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season! Paul Haskins 419-618-4028 email@example.com

Searching for the Answer to a Holstein Mystery I have to admit that I am addicted --- to Holsteins! When I saw that first black and white bull calf that my Dad brought home I was hooked. When grades just didn’t satisfy my Holstein habit, they bought me my first registered Holstein calves. Over the years there has been no cure for me, and you can always find me dealing in something that has to do with Holsteins.
Association of America wrote, “Your caked bag remedy is simply great!” It was advertised as a single can, two pounds delivered $1.00; large can 5 lbs. delivered $2.50; 6 cans 12 lbs. $5.50; 12 cans 24 lbs. delivered $10.00. The HolsteinFriesian Register Co. F. L. Houghton, Brattleboro, Vermont. It would be interesting to know what ingredients were in Caked Bag Remedy!
Recently a very good friend came to visit me In the 1915 Holstein-Friesian register and he enabled me in my Holstein addiction by Congress Lake Farm, Hartville, Ohio was seeking my help in solving a “mystery” that had mentioned. President of the Ohio Holstein Club to do with them. Of course, I couldn’t resist! In was Dr. Harvey B. Gooding, Tiffin, Ohio. Each my research I have discovered so much interesting issue is filled with ads for bulls for sale from By Barb Lumley information from years ago about registered all over the United States. There are numerous Holsteins. There is everything from when they were first pictures of Holstein cows, most have horns and the udders are brought to the United States to present day information. I got fascinating! Holstein breeders have accomplished so much in so involved in researching Holstein publications from years ago correcting type and especially udders over the years. that I forgot to eat lunch the other day! Perhaps that could be An article in the January 1, 1913 Holstein-Friesian Register: the answer to dieting for me as nothing else has worked over the From the Agricultural Student Ohio University Columbus says: years! There are just so many interesting things about Holsteins Clyde Paul DeKol 25131, the famous Holstein owned by Deerer on the computer! Bros. of Camp Chase died recently at the age of 16 years. Earlier As I read Holstein publications from years ago, I find stories in her career the horns of the noted animal were promised to and names that are still involved in Holsteins today. For instance Prof. C. S. Plumb and the same will be mounted and presented --- I was reading the Holstein-Friesian Register, October 15, to him in due time. 1913. One of the first ads I read was for Registered Holsteins As I look back at the old issues of the Holstein Friesian from Indoe and Hatch, Medina, Ohio. Frank P. Sutliff from Cleveland owned a pair of oxen that weighed 8,000 pounds. Register and the Holstein World I find so many interesting There was a bull offered for sale by S. L. Kellogg of Trumbell things. It is obvious that Holstein breeders back then were County. Another ad offered a trotting stallion in exchange for concerned about the same things as breeders today --- breeding Holsteins. Rubber boots were advertised for $2.95 delivery to improve their herd, increasing production and learning how paid to your home. The ones advertised in NASCO today cost to do a better job of feeding and caring for their Holsteins. a little more! The Ukiko Milling Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, Holstein breeders can stand proud of the accomplishments they have made over the years. While I have not yet found the answer advertised feed. to the mystery brought to me by my good friend, I am certainly In a letter from Auray Farms, New Jersey, they wrote, “We enjoying searching for the answer! do not believe in over-forcing heifers with first calf—for example our Auray Elsie Segis daughter of King Fayne Segis made 15 pounds at 2 years 2 months and 3 years 3 months easily made 24 pounds. She is now in calf to King Lyons and is in splendid condition”. Can you imagine how amazed they would be at the production per day of the two year olds in herds today! There were ads for auctioneers --- this one read “Col. D. L. Perry—The Auctioneer—Columbus Ohio. Having sold milch cattle in 24 states in the Union and Canada I therefore solicit your work. I love the Holstein cow. Write for details.” There was an ad for F. W. Andrews and Son, Livestock Auctioneers, Dairy Cattle a Specialty, New Philadelphia, Ohio, Tuscarawas County.

Chocolate milk Enjoying nutrient-rich milk is a great way to help families get their three servings of dairy each day, as recommended by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. However, many people have questions about chocolate milk and the role it can play in a healthy diet. To address this, your dairy checkoff program continues to highlight chocolate milk’s benefits and address common misconceptions through strategic partnerships and consumer communications.
ADA Mideast partners with the Ohio High School Athletic Association and the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission to encourage student athletes to Fuel Up with Chocolate Milk, the official beverage of high school sports in both states. To extend this message, ADA Mideast enlisted the help of Ohio State sports analysts Jim Lachey and Ron Stokes to star in new videos touting chocolate milk’s benefits. The videos air during high school championship events and broadcasts, as well as during Ohio State football and basketball game broadcasts and coaches shows. They are also being shared via social media.
ADA Mideast uses social media like Facebook and Twitter to share facts about chocolate milk and to drive consumers to Drink-Milk.com, where they’ll find supporting articles, videos and fact sheets. Most recently, ADA Mideast produced two new videos to help assure parents that chocolate milk is a good choice for their kids. “A Pediatrician’s Perspective on Milk” features local third-party expert and mom Dr. Elizabeth Zmuda, and "Choose Milk - Chocolate and Strawberry, too!” is a colorful, upbeat animation set to music.

From the HAUSA National Director Dear Holstein Breeders, Hello I would like to introduce myself as the recently elected Area 3 Director of the National Holstein Board of directors. My name is Steve Moff my wife Jane and I live in Columbiana, Ohio. Our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prefix is Ouric, and the main farm where my parents, Howard and Barb live has an address of Canfield OH. Our herd was downsized about 9 years ago, we now have about 15 milking animals and about 15 heifers. In addition to raising the heifers here in Columbiana, I have worked for Coba/Select Sires since 1980 as a Dairy Program Specialist doing the SMS herd mating. Thank you to everyone who supported me in running for the Area 3 Director position of the National Holstein board. The Ohio Association was very supportive, thanks to all. I will be attending an orientation in Brattleboro September 26th and 27th and the 1st meeting will be November 15th and 16th in Chicago. I will pass on that the Council
on Dairy Cattle Breeding (CDCB) elected new officers with John Meyer representing PDCA elected Chairman, John Clay representing dairy records processing Vice Chairman, Dan Sheldon for DHIA Treasure and Chuck Sattler NAAB as Secretary.
Please let me know if you have questions or concerns in regard to the National Association. Email email@example.com , cell 614-205-7179. Your National Director, Steve Moff

RECAL Microbials is a unique combination of probiotics, enzymes, and concentrated yeast culture. It was designed to improve overall health of the animals, aid in reducing stress, aid in improving digestion and also feed and mineral utilization.
We go by what the cows say, the cows never lie. First of all there is NO magic bullet out there on the market and second of all more milk is NOT the answer to more profitability. Most people think that the more the cow eats, the more she will milk. Well that is not necessarily true. If it is going in one end and out the other end without being digested and utilized what good is that??? Money being wasted!!! Most dairymen think more milk/ cow is the answer to profitability. Well if every cow in the USA goes up five pounds of milk next week what happens to the milk price??? It drops do to, too much surplus milk. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see if we can produce the same amount of milk with less feed due to better digestion, improve rumen health, improve overall health, improve reproduction and lower cull rate. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that just as good as more milk??? This is called begin more efficient. This lowers your input cost and improves YOUR BOT TOM LINE!!!
Jamie Troxel, Dr. G.W. Snider & Cows We have been tracking dry matter intakes, cow numbers, milk production, % butter fat, % protein, % osol, feed costs, income, 3.50% FCM efficiency, and income over feed cost on every dairy farm we have started since 2011. To us this is better than any University Research do to every farm is different. What happens on a University Research Farm and what happens on your farm is two different things. Plus we have never seen a cow that can read, but cows can tell you a lot, and they never lie. So we do the research on your farm, with your cows, in front of your eyes. You as a dairyman have to see a difference.

SEPTEMBER/OC TOBER 2017
Eleanor Roosevelt, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony, and Abigail Adams — some of the most influential women in history. There was a time when women were not allowed to have a leading role in any form. Women were expected to do their womanly duties and that was simply it. Today however, us women have doors all around us open to new possibilities and endless opportunities. In the Ohio Holstein Association, there are many women who play an enormous role in keeping everything running smoothly. Although handing out ribbons, being a friendly face, and orga-
nizing the awards on a table may not seem like a very rigorous job the Ohio Holstein Queen has these duties that must be done. Victoria Deam, the daughter of Neil and Jennifer Deam is seventeen years old and lives in the small town of Sugarcreek Ohio along with her younger sister Emily. She is now in her Senior year at Garaway High School where she has been an active member in the student council for six years. Along with taking post-secondary classes at Kent State University, Victoria also is a fourth year varsity letterman on the Football and Basketball Cheerleading squad. She has plans to attend Bowling Green State University’s college of Business next fall with a major in Sales and Service Marketing. Outside of the life she has at school are her Holsteins. Victoria has been a part of the Tuscarawas County Dairy program for 10 years. The county level is just were it begins however, Victoria has exhibited Holsteins at Districts 1, 2 and 3, the Spring Dairy Expo, Ohio State Fair, NAILE, and has even had the honor of exhibiting at the World Dairy Expo. In February, Victoria was crowned the 2017 Ohio Holstein Queen. This, for her, was a dream come true. After watching all of the women who have such a huge role in the Association she was honored to have the opportunity to represent an organization that she is so proud to be a part of. “I would like to thank Diana Miley, Mary Lou Topp, Cheri Oechsle, Jackie Bickel, Leslie Maurice, and Melissa Hart. They are just some of the wonderful women I had the pleasure of working alongside this year.”

There’s a New Satellite in Town
By Melissa Hart Plain-Knoll Holsteins, the Buschur Family, is the newest satellite center for Trans Ova Genetics. Located in New Weston, the Buschur family wanted a closer place to have In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) done on their individuals and decided there was no place like home. Buschur’s constructed a barn where the Trans Ova staff could perform IFV on about 30 cows a day. The grand opening of the new Trans Ova Satellite center was August 29th and they were in full swing with approximately 20 individuals going through the IVF process that day. “We’ve been doing IVF heavily since about 2015 and our closest satellite center was about four hours each way,” explained Mackenzie (Buschur) Bertke. She continued, “We had to take our cows on an eight-hour trip every two weeks, and that was fine, but we thought it would be easier and less stressful on the cows if we had a satellite close by.” Before Buschur Dairy, there was
nothing from Pine Tree Dairy satellite center in eastern Ohio to Donor Solutions in Rensselaer, Indiana. This new location will offer the producers in western Ohio and eastern Indiana another option to take their cows for reproductive work. “I think the popularity of IVF is growing,” mentioned Bertke, “The process is getting more reliable and people are getting more comfortable with the results and the cost continues to get lower and lower so it’s more feasible for more producers.” Dairy producers nearby are taking advantage of the facility, “We have a lot more interest now that there is a closer facility,” added Bertke. She mentioned that having the facility in the area has made it more feasible to IVF those special individuals that aren’t as mobile. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the process of creating embryos from oocytes (unfertilized egg cells) by fertilizing them with semen in a Petri dish. Oocytes are first collected from the ovaries of donors by ultrasound-guided follicular aspiration. They are then
matured in a Petri dish and fertilized 20-24 hours later. Conventional, sexed frozen, or reverse-sorted semen may be used for fertilization. Oocytes then develop in an incubator for seven days, at which point the resulting viable embryos are transferred into recipients Since 1980, Trans Ova Genetics has been providing industry-leading reproductive technologies and expertise to breeders of cattle and small ruminants. Utilizing their integrated system of regional centers and satellite stations—or directly the farm—they will work closely with you to advance and extend superior genetics. From their veterinarians and embryologists, to their animal caretakers and client service representatives, they share a deep passion and commitment to helping you make the most of your herd. For more information on the Buschur Dairy Satellite of Trans Ova Genetics contact Mackenzie Bertke at 937-467-0768.

Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner By Victoria Deam
A Dream Come True! Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great time during your week(s) at The Ohio State Fair! I would like to thank everyone that I was able to talk with while taking care of my duties as Queen during Holstein week. Since I was a little girl, coming to the State Fair during the summer was always one of my favorite events while we were on break from school. This highly anticipated show week, every year, has brought me some of my closest friends and most cherished memories. That statement became more than true at The 2017 Ohio State Fair this year. In June, two days before the Ohio Holstein Juniors were scheduled to leave for the National Convention in Seattle, Washington I was allowed the opportunity to tag along. Although it was too late for me to participate in any of the events my time spent with the Ohio Juniors was truly a pivotal moment in my life. Before that week in late June, I was always aware of the Junior Associa-
tion but had never taken the initiative to meet or truly become an active member. While in Washington I was able to go on farm tours for a day, meet many other Holstein Juniors my age from other states, observed the speech contest, enjoy the Junior Game Night, indulge in some wonderful meals, and attend the formal meeting along with many other activities that helped make my first National Convention one leaving me excited for the next. Although the itinerary gave me many wonderful experiences it was not what I will cherish most about the trip. The friendships that formed with the Ohio Juniors during that week were what made me not want it to end. Some friendships that were already established grew, and I was able to become best friends with individuals who I have looked up to for years. That has been one of my favorite parts of being your Queen this year. In the past, I have missed out on many junior activities simply because I did not have a relationship with any of the other active members in the association. After the experiences shared at The National Convention, and the laughs the we had during the Junior meeting and Barnyard Olympics, I can smile and say I am excited to continue being an active junior member even after this year is over. Lastly, I would like to tell you all about Saturday night at The Ohio State Fair. For years I have watched the Holstein Futurity in awe, and even had the opportunity to show in it a few years ago. This year one of my dreams came true. Having the opportunity to represent our beautiful Holsteins while wearing my formal gown and ride in on the iconic green truck was a moment I have longed for since I was a little girl. I believe that being the Holstein Queen is much more than wearing the crown and handing out ribbons; it is being one of the friendly faces of the association. Your job is to be an approachable figure, with a contagious smile. State Fair this year gave me the opportunity to answer questions and have conversations with new people. I again would like
Friendships are priceless
A great group of juniors participated at the Ohio State Fair

Ohio was well represented at the National Holstein Convention in Washington and we had a great time.
Just For Juniors Ohio Juniors Enjoy a Busy Summer By Maggie Mathews, Ohio Junior Holstein Association Reporter
The Ohio Juniors have had a busy summer, with National Convention, State Fair and the Summer Celebration Sale! Ohio had six Juniors attend the National Holstein Convention that was held in Bellevue, Washington. Jasmine Auble, Tori Deam, Emma Mathews, Maggie Mathews, Korey Oechsle and Kara Todten represented OHA in several activities. Jasmine and Kara competed in the State Banner competition; Korey participated in the Intermediate Division of the Prepared Speaking contest, presenting the benefits of marketing for dairy breeders; Maggie Mathews placed 15th with her speech on Social Media in the Beginner Division of Public Speaking and Emma Mathews received 3rd Place with her Digital Scrapbook on 2016-2017 Ohio Junior events and activities. Ohio also won the Penny Wars (a fundraiser for the Holstein Foundation) this year, collecting the most pennies out of all the attending states. Emma, Korey and Maggie served as our voting delegates at the Junior Annual Meeting. In addition, the Ohio Juniors visited notable dairy farms in the Washington area, stopped in at the famous Pike Street Market and made new friends from across the county. The Juniors who went to the Convention would like to thank the Ohio Holstein Board of Directors for supporting the trip, Jeneva Auble and Jackie Bickel for chaperoning the trip to Washington, those who bought raffle tickets and everyone who made donations at the lunch stands we had at the Ohio Holstein Sales.
future Junior activities, individuals interested in going to the 2018 National Convention and volunteers to work the lunch stands at OHA sales. After the meeting, the Juniors had a pizza party with the Ayrshire Juniors, which was sponsored by ADA-Mideastâ&#x20AC;Ś thank you! The Juniors also shared a booth with the Ayrshire and Shorthorn Juniors during the State Fair, and the Holstein Juniors sold t-shirts to raise money for 2018 Convention. The Holstein Juniors tied with the Ayrshire Juniors on the number of hours spent at the booth, and will receive $125 for time spent promoting the dairy industry to fair visitors. On Friday, Juniors had an ice cream social and barn Olympics, with a great turn out from all the juniors from all the breeds showing that week! The Juniors hosted a food stand during the August Summer Celebration sale, raising over $350 in donations. Thank you to Maggie Mathews and Jasmine Auble for working the food booth, and to Jackie Bickel for securing donations and preparing the food.
During the Ohio State Fair, the Juniors had several opportunities to get together. There was a business meeting on Thursday evening, where the Junior Board of Directors gave an update on events going on in the Association, got feedback on Junior awards given out at Spring Expo and asked for ideas and suggestions for
The Ohio Holstein Junior Quilt entry for the 2017 National Holstein Convention.
Jasmine Auble and Maggie Mathews made sure that there was plenty of drinks and sandwiches for those who attended the Summer Celebration Sale. OHIO NEWS

Darrel E. Knisely Darrel E. Knisely, a dairy farmer who milked, bred, and sold registered Holsteins and was a Fulton County Agriculture Hall of Fame inductee, died Tuesday in ProMedica Ebeid Hospice Residence, Sylvania. He was 86. He had a stroke over the weekend, his daughter DeeAnn said. He didn’t go back to farm work after heart bypass surgery in 2011, and the animals of DMaples Registered Holsteins were sold in 2015. He still lived on the family’s Gorham Township farm. “He mowed the grass on Friday,” his daughter said. He was inducted into the agriculture hall of fame in August, 2002, ahead of the annual county fair. By then, he was credited with selling Holsteins to farms in almost every state and in several other countries. “He said he always loved being around the cattle and raising the cattle,” daughter DeeAnn said. “It was a goal to improve the quality of the animal.” In his era, artificial insemination took over from barnyard bulls. He studied pedigrees to find prospects that complemented his herd. “Things one side was lacking, you paired up with a side that was better to get the best of all possible genetic qualities,” his daughter Denise said. “He was almost a geneticist. He just had a high school education, you learned to do those things as part of your craft of being a farmer.” He judged dairy shows in Ohio and Michigan, and his Holsteins competed in national shows. He started the Dandy Dairymen 4-H Club and played host to dairy seminars and school tours. “Any time he could be around people, he would be happy,” daughter DeeAnn said. “That was his social life, going to the dairy banquets and dairy shows around northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.” He belonged to the Ohio Holstein Association and the Holstein Association USA. He was a member of the Gorham-Fayette Board of Education in the late 1960s and early 1970s and served as president and vice

president. “He had four kids going to school. It was community service,” daughter Denise said. Diversions were few. “Milking cows and making hay is a full-time job - and takes all your spare time, too,” daughter DeeAnn said. “He was happy and content with his status in life.” He was born Aug. 27, 1930, to Myrtle and Charles Knisely, near Monroe. He was 7 when the family moved to a farm near Munson, Mich., in Lenawee County, where his father raised Jersey cattle. He was a 1949 graduate of Fayette High School. He and the former Martha Jane Leininger married June 14, 1952, and settled on her family’s Gorham Township farm. He began his Holstein operation there in the late 1960s. He was a member of Archbold Evangelical Mennonite Church. His wife, who was known as Jane, died June 19, 2016. Surviving are his daughters, Denise Knisely and DeeAnn Simmons; sons, Dennis and David; sister, Eva Clendenen; brothers, Dale and Duane; five grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. The family suggests tributes to the Fulton County 4-H Endowment Fund.
