You win big

at the University of Minnesota because we offer a unique blend of Big Ten excitement with the down-home comfort of our small St. Paul campus.

The Gopher Dairy Club is one of the largest and most active at the University of Minnesota. It’s your ticket to ADSA activities, Senior Trip to California, the campus-wide fun of Minnesota Royal, and scholarships for incoming new members – all of which are funded by our student-managed Gopher Dairy Bar at the Minnesota State Fair. And, our students are well known in dairy cattle judging, National Dairy Challenge, as well as National Dairy Shrine, which “Gophers” have consistently been awarded the most scholarships over the past decade. Academically speaking, our dairy faculty has declared teaching its top priority, so students are always first.




We welcome you to check us out for a golden opportunity!

Lafayette collector achieves Guiness World Record to achieve the Guinness record. The witnesses commented on some of the major categories that they listed, finding 3,264 figurines, 888 stuffed animals, 605 items of wearing apparel, and 537 mugs, glasses, pitchers, etc. Each piece is numbered before it is put on display and is recorded by description, size, material, and acquisition (purchased or gift/ cost/date) on a computer spreadsheet. The assigned number is placed on the item with a sticker, or written on it. The collection started in the mid- to later 1970s with just a few pieces. It now fills every shelf, cabinet, couch, desktop, staircase ledge, kitchen counter, wall space, bedroom, closet, bathroom, the entire basement including the furnace room, and nook and cranny of the house. About a dozen larger pieces are displayed outdoors in summer. In June, two witnesses spent two days counting every piece in the collection, as required

The collection includes every type of item imaginable—tins, bags, boxes, baskets, coffee mugs, plates, teapots, salt & peppers, creamers & sugars, toothpick holders, watches, wall clocks, alarm clocks, night lights, banks, music boxes, Christmas ornaments, cigarette lighters, artist prints, wall hangings, stuffed animals, toys, miniatures, barns, card games, golf balls, dog toys, puzzles, jewelry, ceramics, milk bottles, milking machines, T-shirts, sweatshirts, other

clothing items, quilts & throws, pillows, statues, photos, books, greeting cards, postcards, candy, bookends, lamps, pieces made from cow manure, items from many foreign countries, and much more. Some of the items date back to Ruth’s youth and 4-H days, including trophies from showing cows and wooden advertising pencils that relate to dairy cattle. Klossner’s love of (real) cows started when she was very young. Some of her first pets were calves. She took an active part in working with her family’s herd of 30 Holstein cows near New Ulm, Minnesota. Her mother died in 1966 when Ruth was a senior in high school and her father quit dairy farming. Ruth continued to stay active in 4-H and kept her prize-winning 4-H cow for six years, boarding her in different dairy herds. The cow was champion of the Minnesota State Fair 4-H show in 1966. Klossner was named Minnesota Holstein Girl in 1967 and National Holstein Girl in 1968.

Minnesota Brood Cow Profile: Markwell Dundee Dorian-ET John and Rachel Holmgren from Motley, MN built its foundation on strong cow families with solid type. The Holmgren’s entered Markwell Dundee Dorian into Minnesota’s Brood Cow contest for 2015 and she is a well deserved winner. Markwell Dundee Dorian-ET (EX-94 3E GMD) is a Dundee daughter from Markwell Durham Doreen-ET (EX 91 3E GMD) x Markwell Luke Rapture-ET (EX 92 4E GMD) Markwell BStar E Raven-ET (EX 92 3E GMD) x Markwell Mark Elite (EX 92 4E GMD) x Rockalli Mars Emily (EX 94 4E GMD) Dorian has proven herself to be one of the best brood cows on the Holmgren farm so far. With a strong pedigree it is no surprise that she passes that along to her daughters. Holmgren Talent HannahET is a 2 times EX 92 daugher, her full sister Homgren Talent Montana also scores EX 92 and was the reserve All-MN Junior three-

Markwell Dundee Dorian-ET

year-old in 2014. Other daughters following in their mothers footsteps are Holmgren Snowman Dream (VG 87) who was reserve All-MN junior calf and has peaked her production at 123 pounds on two times per day milking. Dorian’s son Holmgren Osborndale Ivanhoe owned by David Joos Jr. has scored 94 points and daughter Holmgren Goldsun Dana (VG 86) was the second place milking yearling at the Minnesota State Fair and a part of the first place produce of dam class at the 2014 District show. In addition to all the progeny listed Dorian has three VG Shottle two year-old daughters, 2 VG Renaissance Triumphant two year-old daughters and a fancy summer calf Brokaw daughter. Markwell Dundee Dorian is a backbone to Holmgren’s strong cow family and will continue to create strong progeny for the next generation of cow families from Holmgren Holsteins

Minnesota Holstein Feature Story The full story can be found in the Minnesota Holstein News

Women in Overalls While the overall number of farms in the U.S. are declining, the number of women in charge are on the rise. Although there is no doubt women have always played an important part in farm life, their roles seem to be evolving. Since 2002 alone there has been a 30% increase in women managing farms. The women involved in the Minnesota Holstein Association are no exception to these figure. Jill Nelson, Katie Olson and Shelby Mahoney are all Minnesota Holstein members who are some of many women that can not only be found involved in their local Holstein clubs but also helping manage their family farming operation as well. These women are not only a part of the Holstein industry but also the future of it. Tell us about you and your farm operation: JN: I farm with my husband, Brian and children, Isaac, 15 and Josh, 13 on my family’s farm. We moved back to the farm in 2002 and purchased the farm from my dad, Roger and uncle, Floyd, in 2009...

KO: I am the herd manager at Olson-Lane Holsteins, my family farm owned by my parents, Jim & Beth Olson, where we milk 65 cows in a tie stall barn. We raise our 75 heifers on site, run 300 tillable acres of alfalfa and corn. 280 of those acres are on the home farm and we rent 120 acres from my grandparents, Allen & Donna Aarsvold. I presently own 20 animals. 13 registered Holsteins, 6 Jerseys under the Inspire Jerseys name and recently bought a Red and White heifer this summer... SM: I am currently working on my parent’s dairy farm in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. We have around 80 milking registered Holstein cows both Black & White and Red & White. White. Our cows are in a 65 tie stall barn and we also have some switch cows on a bedded pack. We milk twice a day with 5 automatic take off milkers. Most of the work on the farm is done by my parents and me, with some help on weekends or during busy times from our hired help. Dad mixes feed for the milk cows, feeds heifers, cleans and beds the outside animals, does maintenance work on equipment.... (full story can be found on pages 12-14 of Minnesota Holsteins News)

“All Roads Lead Thank You for attending the Dale and I would like to thank everyone who had any part in the recent successful 2015 National Holstein Convention. The committee chairmen did an outstanding job. The volunteers were a help beyond expectations. Those who attended any event were greatly appreciated. I know all have busy schedules and priorities to home and family are important. Your participation is what made the convention a huge success. Many, many positive comments were made by attendees and 2015 in Illinois made a lasting impression on Holstein breeders and industry people from across the nation and internationally. Also we send a huge thank you to all our sponsors and monetary and in kind contributors. Without you none of this would have been possible.

Minnesota Holstein History mindless ramblings down an endless cow lane. by John Busacker

“My favorite bull”

“A good day to buy cows”

There have been many great sires in the last 40 years, Durham and Storm would be right at the top of my list, but the greatest bull to come along is Round Oak Rag Apple Elevation in my opinion. I will not bore anyone with numbers and proofs, if anyone is interested they can look them up. Elevation is the greatest sire I have ever seen come for one reason. He had the ability to work on anything. It did not matter what a cows breeding, records or classification was. You had just as good a chance of getting a great daughter from a 68pt cow as you did an 86pt cow. There were offspring in Minnesota that you might remember.

Henry Bartel Seniors Beau Vache herd was dispersed Sept 9, 1968. It is the only time in history a 96, 94, 93 pt cow were sold in Minnesota at public auction. The queen of the herd and star of the sale was Texal Beau Babe who was scored EX 94 at the time and later scored EX 96. She was All-American three year-old in 1965 and a major favorite at a number of Minnesota shows for years to come. Her daughter sold for $16,000 in the 1974 Golden Gopher Classic. Henry’s brother Harvey Bartel purchased her. Beau Robanon Lois was EX 92 at the sale and later scored EX 94-4E. Lois was seven times All-Minnesota or reserve All-Minnesota. She was Grand Champion at the 1972 state HolMarti’s bred Olmar Elevation Bess EX 92 All-Min- stein show, had an EX 92 astronaut daughter and nesota as a calf and 2 year old and Olmar Elevation a triple threat daughter that topped the Golden Gopher Classic at $38,000. She was purchased by Dazzling Star EX 94, if she had only been a little bigger she could have room anywhere. Deer Brook Olsondale Farms, Virgil Olson and sons. Beau Gilmore Ray Apple EX 93 was bred by Agrimson’s Patsy O-Day was scored EX 92 and later scored EX and later sold to an investor herd. Bill Eustice bred 93-3E She had a great grad daughter Walnut Lake a sire that was All-Minnesota and Honorable men- Topper Rhonda who topped the Walnut Lake Sale at $5,700 on April, 25 1977. She was purchased by tion All-American in 1981. Howard and Marion George Lorenz. Heins bred several excellent Elevation daughters and Esmur-Downs Elevation Bell EX-95. The allHow did the three cows sell at the Beau Vache American aged bull in 1979. Herd dispersal? Babe brought $3,700, Lois $2,400 and Patsy $1,800. A 96, 94, and 93 point cow all for just over $8000. Not a bad day to buy a cow.

2018 Wisconsin Holstein Futurity

29th Annual WHA Futurity Eleven three-year-old Holstein cows paraded around the coliseum at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wisconsin on Saturday, August 15 to compete for the title of first place in the 29th Annual Wisconsin Holstein Futurity. John Erbsen of Lanark, Illinois served as the official judge. The Wisconsin Holstein Futurity is a non-traditional cattle show, where the exhibitors enter their animals three years prior to the show in hopes of raising a high-quality show cow. It is a prestigious show where only the best in Registered Holsteins compete. Topping the class was Milksource Dty Tammy-Red-ET, owned by Grady and Lane Wendorf and Dawson and Kylie Nickels of Ixonia and shown by Ryan Krohlow. They received a $1,500 check from Badgerland Financial, a major sponsor of the Wisconsin Holstein Futurity. Milksource Dty Tammy-Red-ET was also named the Best Udder of the show sponsored by East Central Select Sires and was the top fat and protein production winner sponsored by Rural Mutual Insurance Agent, Brian Greenman. In second place was Oeh-My Atwood Enso, owned by Chase and Willow Oehmichen of Abbotsford and shown by Chad Ryan. She took home a check for $750 presented by International Protein Sires. Enso was also named the top milk production winner sponsored by Rural Mutual Insurance Agent, Brian Greenman. Miss Summer Song-ET, owned by Dawson and Kylie Nickels of Watertown and shown by Dawson Nickels placed third. Agropur presented a check for $500 to the Nickels siblings. Miss Summer Song-ET was also the first place Junior and received an award sponsored by Angela Davis-Brown of Ma-Brown Holsteins and Jerseys and $50 sponsored by the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association. Even though the cows are the stars of the show, the WHA Futurity is a time for our exhibitors to exchange their blue jeans and boots for ball gowns and tuxedos. All the exhibitors dressed to impress, but only three best-dressed individuals were named. Each best-dressed individual received a trophy with a photo frame and a cash award. Best Dressed Junior was awarded to Nicole Wright and sponsored by Frisle-Vu Holsteins. Joel Kietzman was awarded the Best Dressed Adult Male sponsored by Indianhead Holsteins. Scenic-Edge Holsteins was the sponsor for the Best Dressed Adult Female and this award went to Christa Wendorf. Courtney Booth and Kristin Olson served as Mistresses of Ceremonies for the evening where they helped to introduce the exhibitors and dignitaries. In attendance were Wisconsin Secretary of Agriculuture, Ben Brancel; Alice in Dairyland, Teyanna Loether; Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs, Deanna Schlies; WHA Princess, Sierra Lurvey; WHA Princess Attendant, Cierra Ehrke-Essock; National Red and White Queen, Carley Krull; Wisconsin RWDCA Princess, Savannah Micke; Green and Dane County Dairy Royalty, and National Anthem singers, Bryce Krull and Molly Sarbacker. The futurity would not be possible without our generous sponsors. WHA would like to thank the major futurity sponsors, Badgerland Financial, International Protein Sires, Agropur and Brian Greenman, Rural Mutual Insurance Agent, for helping to make this show a success. 38 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Fall 2015

The purpose of the WHA Futurity is to help promote the dairy industry to the general public and display the care and dedication that we have for our animals and the products they produce. The WHA Futurity was initiated and held at the Wisconsin State Fair to inform people that are not from an agriculture background about the Registered Holstein and the dairy industry.

Best Young Cows at Nor-Way-Pete Owned by: Thomas & Florine Bunkelman Brooke, Brent & Brodie

We really like our Heros, Gold Chips, Bradnicks and Sids. Ultra fancy 2-year-olds with exceptional udders. Classification will be fun for a long time as we have many more daughters of all four bulls to still calve. They are following the footsteps of Atwood and Sanchez, two of the best bulls we have ever used. Question: Why do the high GPTAT young sires seem to maintain their high ranking for type when proven, while we see much more fluctuation in NM and health traits? The classifier only looks at the young sire daughters for about two minutes. I’m sure there is a good reason.

 The Marathon County Holstein Breeders manage a cheese curd stand at several events during the year. The cheese curd stand was started in 1988 when the board was looking for a way to make a little extra money. The group first started to sell at The Athens Fair using cheese curds from Bledsoe’s Cheese of Marathon. In 1996 they sold curds at the Wisconsin Farm Progress Days at Ross Farm in Marathon. In 1998 they expanded to sell at The Edgar Steam Engine Show and from 2004 to 2006 sold at The Marathon Tractor Pull held on Father’s Day. Deep fried pickles were added to the menu in 2002 and, on average, sell 225 pounds of pickles. Cheese curds sales average 12001300 pounds each year. Workers in the stand receive a $10 Fleet gift card for each shift they work. When they first started the stand, Don and Linda Christiansen, Eddie Mielke, and Dan and Michelle Mielke helped to organize the helper schedule. For the first five years the stand was rented from the Wittenberg Lions Club and the group got the ingredients through them as well. In 1993, the Holstein Breeders built their own stand with the help of Dan Mielke and started to get the ingredients though Village Spirits Restaurant. The floor of the stand was fixed in 2008 and the frame rebuilt in 2015. Proceeds from the cheese curd stand helps pay for scholarships, the Awards Banquet, trophies for first place winners at the Wisconsin Valley Fair for both the black and white and red and white Holstein shows. Association funds pay a portion of the county ads put in the Wisconsin Holstein News and helps sponsor the county overnight spring trip to visit other farms. The group also helped the Athens Fair to build a cover over the show ring, paid for one of the judges at the Wisconsin Valley Fair until 2011, and helps sponsor the Little Britches show at the Wisconsin Valley Fair and the Athens Fair. With the success the Marathon County Holstein Breeders have had with the cheese curd stand, they Long lines at this year’s cheese curd stand would encourage other associations to try such a at the Athens Fair fundraiser.
