Dairy judging is strong at the University of Minnesota,

so strong that its teams have placed first overall in six of the nine major contests in 2015, 2016 and 2017 held at: the All-American Dairy Show (Harrisburg, PA), the North American International Livestock Exposition (Louisville, KY), and World Dairy Expo (Madison, WI). Furthermore, over the past 8 years in these 3 contests, the University of Minnesota has placed 1st overall in 12 of the 24 contests. No other university comes close to this incredible record of success. If you’re considering a career in dairy, consider the U of M. In addition to our

highly successful judging teams, you can be part of the Gopher Dairy Club, where more than 100 student members gain experience and industry contacts through activities like an all-expense-paid 10-day trip to California in January for seniors. Both inside and outside the classroom, our dairy professors make teaching and working with students their top priority. Learn more today at ansci.umn.edu

Moyer Wins Michigan Holstein Association Outstanding Young Breeder Award

By Carla Wardin Brent Moyer is the 2019 winner of the Michigan Holstein Association (MHA) Outstanding Young Breeder award. When he was nine years old, Moyer fell in love with dairy cows on his uncle’s farm. In 2008, he moved to his current location and joined Paramount Enterprises, LLC., with his partner Brent Robinson. They now have 1800 cows and 1400 younger head. The 90 percent registered herd has a rolling average of 26,134 pounds of milk, 1,049 pounds of fat and 818 pounds of protein. He has 243 cows that have given over 100,000 pounds in their lifetime, with the highest at 285,655 lifetime pounds in her ninth lactation. In the last six years he’s bred five Excellent and 48 Very Good cows, and he developed four Excellent and 27 Very Good cows. The highest is scored 93 points. He has also bred or developed numerous All-American nominations. Out of all of his titles, the Outstanding Young Breeder award stands out. “This award holds a lot of meaning to me,” Moyer said. “I’m humbled, because it’s a reflection of how my peers feel about our farm. I certainly wasn’t expecting it.” Moyer has been developing his Holstein herd for a number of years. Prior to 2006, he was working as a herd manager at a dairy and had his own herd in a tie stall barn. Some of his focus was on show types. When he began farming with Brent Robinson, they started discussing why registered cows were important.

“We figured we’re going to be doing this for a long time, so we didn’t want to look at ugly cows... If you don’t enjoy what you’re looking at, it’s hard to enjoy what you’re doing.” “My thought was that you can base an entire herd off three or four cow families. I focused on what I want in a cow, which is eye appeal, a nice front end, a good udder, and what I call natural dairy strength. I like ones that look like they could go in the show ring, but instead of being 65 inches tall, are 60-62 inches. Great big cows don’t work,” he said. Moyer said since neither he nor Robinson came from a farming family that was handing anything down, they milked any cows they could to get started. After awhile, though, that model wasn’t working for them. “We figured we’re going to be doing this for a long time, so we didn’t want to look at ugly cows,” Moyer said. 22 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Spring 2019

MHA President Tim Baker (left) presents Brent Moyer with the Outstanding Young Breeder Award at the 2019 MHA annual meeting held in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

To positively develop the herd, they implemented an SCR system, and Moyer took on the breeding responsibilities himself. “We focused on higher type bulls and higher component bulls. Since we started, we have evolved tremendously. I would say it’s a completely different herd,” he said. “I’m working to produce the kind of cows that best fit our environment.” Like all Michigan dairies, Moyer has to adapt his plans to the changing economy. Paramount has also begun partnering with Goma Dairy, owned by Gert and Gertie Van Den Goor, and the blending of the farms, called Green Point Dairy, LLC., is allowing for even more efficiencies. “First, we’re making sure each facility has the proper focus and the right people are in the right places. Second, if we have the money, we buy something, but we’re not financing everything,” he said. “We try to remain as efficient as possible and do the best we can without doing any extra spending.” In 2019, Moyer plans on continuing his breeding program and building a high-quality herd. “Our plan moving forward is to keep the best of our cows at our dairy,” Moyer said. “If we can take the best cows and get daughters out of them, that’s really the kind of cows we want. We’d explore doing a little bit extra, like embryo transfer, with those 100-150 cows to get more that fit the mold.” He concluded, “If you don’t enjoy what you’re looking at, it’s hard to enjoy what you’re doing.”

Some of these champions include: Grand Champion of the Illinois State Fair in 2017, a show herd that was awarded Premier Breeder & Exhibitor at both the Illinois State Show & State Fair in 2013, the 2006 Supreme Champion of the Illinois State Fair, an EX-95-3E Grand Champion in 2001, and of course the 1989 All-American Produce of Dam.

His current BAA is 111.2 on 69 cows, ranking them 54th overall on the top 200 and 9th for their herd size.

Each and every cow has a special Holstein President Ed Smith pictured with his daughters Sarah Butler and Jackie Jansen and wife Karen place in his heart, and this love has extended down to his daughters Christie, Jackie and Sarah.


Her love of the Holstein cow and his desire to follow in his father and grandfather’s footsteps of being a dairy farmer met while they were active in the Illini Dairy Club at the University of Illinois. After graduating with degrees in Animal Science (Dairy) in the spring of 2005, they were joined in marriage in the fall of 2005 and began the journey of being Registered Holstein breeders and dairy farmers. After a year of dairy farming with his parents, the decision was made to join her parents at R-Homestead Holsteins. This year’s recipients of the Illinois Holstein Junior Breeder Award are Marc and Lora Hilgendorf of Nokomis. Marc and Lora’s desire to breed and be active in the dairy industry and especially in developing a top registered herd began with a working relationship at R-Homestead and today, they are making most of the management and breeding decisions. The herd has maintained a DHIR lactation average of over 24,000m 800f and 720p. They recently received a BAA of 109 with 10 EX Marc and Lora Hilgendorf were presented with the cows.

Michigan Holstein Association Cheese Plant Slated for 2020 By Carla Wardin ST JOHNS – In August 2018, Glanbia Nutritionals, Dairy Farmers of America, and Select Milk Producers Inc. announced plans to build a cheese plant in St Johns, Michigan. The $440 million production facility project will reportedly process 8 million pounds of milk a day and employ 250 people. The companies also announced that Proliant Dairy Ingredients will process whey in an $85 million adjoining building, which will create 38 jobs. The St Johns project is on track to be the largest food-processing plant in mid-Michigan. According to Glanbia, St Johns was chosen due to its proximity to milk supply, as well as transportation and business environment reasons. The news comes during a long-term dip in milk prices for Michigan farmers. Kristi Keilen milks 450 cows at K & K Dairy Farms in Westphalia, just 17 miles from the plant’s site. She’s president of the Clinton County Farm Bureau and a member of DFA. “I’m excited about the plant and

the opportunities it will bring for not only Michigan dairy farmers, but also the community,” said Keilen. “I foresee the biggest benefit being the decreases in transportation costs to get the product to a processing facility. I also think Glanbia is an excellent company, and hopefully they will be able to help market the product to sell more volume of it for dairy farmers.” Though Clinton County has an unemployment rate of 2.6%, even lower than the national 3.9%, the community is warmly welcoming the additional job opportunities. St Johns Mayor Eric Hufnagel is looking forward to the plant completion. “The obvious way the new plant will be benefiting the St Johns community will be the jobs it provides,” he said. “Whenever you have new jobs, the benefits also spill over into the community, whether it be more customers at local restaurants or more work boots sold at local stores. This also translates into a very accessible and cost-effective milk buyer for dairy farmers not only in St Johns, but communities around the entire state.” Dairy farmers and job seekers hope to

benefit from the cheese plant, but the state’s ag community in general is welcoming the business. “The size of this plant is phenomenal,” said Michigan Farm Bureau President Carl Bednarski. “It’s huge that this much product is not going to be shipped out of state. For a dairy farmer there is no downside.” Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) region manager Chuck Courtade foresees his members getting an improved return, but the positives won’t stop there. “There will be a benefit to all the producers in the state,” he said. “Of course, with our members, and Select and Glanbia, but it will also tighten up the milk market for everyone, keep more milk in Michigan, reduce hauling costs, and reduce market adjustment.” He continued, “It’s hard to see the scope of it from the road, but we’ve been seeing great drone pictures and video of the development. When you see the size of it, you understand why it’s going to take this long to build.” The St Johns plant is slated to open in 2020.
