Dairy judging is strong at the University of Minnesota, so strong that its teams have placed first overall in five of the six major contests in 2015 and 2016 held at: the All-American Dairy Show (Harrisburg, PA), the North American International Livestock Exposition (Louisville, KY), and World Dairy Expo (Madison, WI). The team was 2nd (to the University of Kentucky) at Harrisburg in 2016, but placed 1st in reasons by a 16-point margin in that contest. Furthermore, over the past 7 years in these 3 contests, the University of Minnesota has placed 1st overall in 11 of the 21 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 11-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

2016 Outstanding Holstein Boy & Girl Logan Voigts

Being named the 2016 Outstanding Holstein Boy was an extremely humbling experience. To be bestowed with this award and considered amongst the people who have received this award in the past is truly an honor and something I will never forget. My black and white journey began on my family’s farm, Voigtscrest Holsteins, where we milk 75 registered cows, including 10 Jerseys. Here my parents Larry and Kim, as well as my older twin brothers Adam and Matt run the 300-acre farm located between Belmont and Platteville, Wis., in Lafayette County. My involvement on the farm began at young age, helping feed calves, brushing cows during milking, and tagging along behind people trying to help in whatever ways I could. At age seven I finally got the chance to show my first calf after watching my older sister, Carrie, and older brothers show before me. Little did I know that would be the beginning of my Holstein and dairy career, as now I have exhibited at numerous local, district, state, and national shows. Showing was just the springboard that launched me into many activities such as dairy judging, cow camps, fitting clinics, and Junior Holstein Convention. Junior Holstein Convention is what really propelled my involvement with the Holstein Association. Throughout the years I have competed in the essay contest, dairy jeopardy, and my favorite contest, dairy quiz bowl where our shorthanded three-person senior team has placed fourth and fifth the past two years. As a younger member, I took advantage of nearly every opportunity the association had, attending as many events as possible, and it became a goal of mine to someday be a JAC to provide youth with the same knowledge and experiences I had gained from prior JAC’s. Two years ago I took this large step in my Holstein involvement by being elected as a JAC. Being a JAC was undoubtedly one of the best experiences I have ever had, learning how to work effectively with a team and gaining invaluable skills for the future all while helping the youth of this great organization. After graduating from Belmont High School in 2014, I followed my heart to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently, I am a junior majoring in Dairy Science with a certificate in Agricultural

38 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Spring 2017

Business Management. I have become involved with many great organizations here on campus. Through Badger Dairy Club, I served as a grounds chair for World Dairy Expo, where I managed the student labor that keeps the pavilions clean and maintains the expo grounds in general, additionally I am one of the cattle care chairs for the 18th Badger Invitational Sale this upcoming spring. On the campus dairy judging team I have competed in the Accelerated Genetics contest where I was second high individual, and most recently at the NAILE in Louisville where I was eighth high individual overall. I am also a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity, where I have been a member of the permanent finance committee, and currently serve as the Vice Noble Ruler of Management and Operations. Additionally, I have served on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences-Student Association and from this stemmed my role as a student representative on the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Sciences Alumni Association (WALSAA). After graduation, I plan to use the skills and knowledge I have gained through my education along with my experiences on the home farm and in the dairy industry to pursue a career in dairy genetics, hopefully while continuing to build and develop my personal herd of Registered Holsteins. Receiving an award like Outstanding Holstein Boy is by no means an individual effort, I have many people to thank for helping me get to this point. First and foremost, my family, especially my parents who deserve all the thanks I can offer. Without their constant encouragement and support I surely would not have made it this far. My family also instilled me with a passion for the Holstein cow that I will never be able to thank them for enough as the experiences it has given me will help me throughout life and my future career. I would also like to say thank you to all my advisors and coaches, especially Bill and Kelle Calvert, who have worked with me to help develop and grow personally while picking up new skills along the way. Finally, a huge thank you to the entire dairy industry and everyone who has helped me out in one way or another. Over the years all your advice, teachings, encouragement, and support have shaped who I am today and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. To the younger members of this great association, never let go of your passion for this industry and the Holstein cow. The friends you make through this association are some of the best ones you will ever make and you will be connected with them throughout the rest of your life. It is the excitement you show that fuels the passion of the JAC’s to be the best they can, and in turn what drives the cycle that produces amazing leaders and industry people from this organization. While I am sad to end my career as a junior, I can’t wait to take advantage of opportunities to give back to it in the future. God bless the Holstein cow, this great organization, and all the people within it.

Kristen Broege

Without a doubt, I can say that being named Outstanding Holstein Girl in January was the biggest honor of my life so far. I will never be able to explain the feeling of being announced as Girl at this year’s Junior Convention as I sat up on stage amongst some of my closest friends. This award holds a lot of meaning for me because of the Association it comes from, and the outstanding Holstein people that have won it in the past. My passion for Holsteins began on my family’s 400 cow grade Holstein farm. I will always remember feeding calves there alongside my mom, sorting cows with my dad, and raising our first show heifers with my two younger sisters. At about 8 years old my parents helped me purchase my first Registered Holstein project calf. I also began participating in quiz bowl, attending Junior Convention, competing in dairy judging, and attending shows. My father unexpectedly passed away in 2011. After, my mom, sisters, and I moved to a small farmette outside of Janesville, where we raise our Holstein heifers and house our milk cows elsewhere. Our herd currently consists of about 14 animals. I am especially proud of our Rock-Edge herd because we have truly built this herd from the ground up. Recently, I am most proud of our first third generation homebred calf hitting the ground this past December. It may seem like a small feat to some, but to me it shows progress. Every Summer I look forward to attending various Holstein events, but especially enjoy exhibiting my cattle and working at the shows. Of course, leading in the ring is one of my favorite parts, but is certainly not the only. I’ve made the most memories working in the barn, on the wash rack, around the clipping chute and behind the line with some truly great people. In 2013, I decided that I wanted to be more involved with the Junior Association on a state level and ran for Wisconsin Holstein Royalty. I will never forget being told multiple times that I was “just too young” at the time and to not be disappointed if I was not named to either position. I did no let this tear me down, and I let my passion for the Holstein cow and willingness to want to do more for the organization shine through. I was named the 2014 Wisconsin Holstein Princess Attendant and in that year I met a countless number of Holstein enthusiasts, hard-working juniors, and sat ringside to some of the best Holsteins in the world. By far my greatest time spent in Junior Holsteins was spent on the Junior Activities Committee for the past two years. In this time, I learned a lot about myself as a leader and was inspired by the

Juniors I met along the way. Never did I see myself being an outgoing, public speaking, team leader. I can accredit these attributes to the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association. Currently, I am a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying Dairy Science with a certificate in Agricultural Business Management. On campus, I’m very involved in Badger Dairy Club, Association of Women in Agriculture, and the National Agri-Marketing Association. I compete annually on the Collegiate Dairy Judging team and am the Advertising Chair for the 18th Badger Invitational Sale. I will be interning this summer with East Central Select Sires as a Sales and Marketing Intern and after graduation will be pursuing a career in marketing dairy genetics or in another role at a bull stud. The journey to this point in my life would not have been possible without the people that have made a huge difference along the way. First, I would like to thank the outstanding Junior membership I have gotten to know for the past decade. I can truly call some of you my best friends and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I would also like to thank all of the adults and mentors that have pushed me along the way. In addition to that, the people that have believed in my sisters and I at various times, whether that be at shows or housing our cattle. Lastly, but far from least, my family. Mom, thank you for being the biggest supporter to all of my ambitious dreams. To my two sisters, Jenna and Nicole, thank you for being the best two people to own, show, and breed cattle with. Watching you both show sure does make me nervous, but it also gives me goosebumps because of how proud I am of you. I would also like to thank my father for always driving me to do my best, and for watching from above the past six years. I have always been a firm believer in “when one barn door closes, a window opens on the other end”, and my Junior Holstein career has certainly taught me nothing short of that. In September I lost my favorite Holstein cow, Brunland Sanchez Dakota. The awards and accomplishments will fade, but in losing her I reflected on all of the great opportunities I had because of her. We took her to many shows at which I was fortunate enough to work with and meet fantastic youth and adults in this industry. I’ve grown to understand that the magnificent Holstein cow is what gets us into this community, but what also makes us stay are the people and memories we make along the way. I’ve loved every minute of being a Junior member, and look forward to many years of giving back, as it would be hard not to! Thank you again, I couldn’t be more honored to be chosen for this award.

Asia Named 2016 Illinois Holstein of the Year

Luck-E Advent Asia-RC EX-94 6-02 365d 40,150 4.9% 1984 3.3% 1337 Dennis & Beth Engel of Luck-E Holsteins were presented with the first Illinois Holstein of the Year award from President Jason Oertel

The Illinois Holstein Association debuted a new contest that recognized an animal that had great success in 2016. This Illinois Holstein of the Year contest accepted nominations and results were based on votes from the Illinois Holstein Association’s Facebook page. Receiving the first Illinois Holstein of the Year award was Luck-E Advent Asia-RC EX-94. Asia was bred by Luck-E Holsteins, Hampshire, Illinois. She is now owned by Bert-Mar Farms, Osseo, Wisconsin.

Asia is the dam of 76HO1603 Awesome-Red and 200HO6450 Adonis-Red. Her first six daughters are ALL classified EX as 3-year-olds! Two of her daughters, Luck-E Durham Autumn-Red-ET and Luck-E Durham Avail-Red-ET, were named Honorable Mention All-American Red & White Produce of Dam. Surely a family that transmits. Luck-E Holsteins is excited to share that the first public offering from Asia will be selling on the Illinois PDCA Calf Sale on April 1st - - a March Diamondback. Congratulations to the breeders of Asia, Luck-E Holsteins, the Engel family!

Kleiner Recieves 2016 Distinguished Service Award This year’s Illinois Holstein Distinguished Service Award winner is a husband, father and grandfather who was also a dairy farmer until 1997. In his community, he has been active in his church, the local Optimist Club and county fair board. When he was farming, he served on the Prairie Farms Board of Directors and the Prairie State Select Sires Board. When he stopped farming, one of the jobs he held was as a Regional Representative for Holstein USA covering Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas. Later he helped start Dairy Agenda Today. Larry Kleiner, our favorite pedigree reader, is the winner of this year’s Service Award! Larry has helped with countless sales taking bids, reading the pedigrees and doing anything else that was needed. Throughout all of these activities he has always been passionate about quality Holstein cattle and the people who are involved with the industry. The family “behind the man” include his wife Sharon, sons Shad and Cody, their wives Liz and Robin, and Larry’s grandchildren Ella, Lila, Silas and Clayton. Congratulations Larry!

Clantons Awarded Senior Breeder Award

Award sponsored by Marilyn, Karen and David Butler IL Holstein Senior Breeder Award Recipients Bruce & Joyce Clanton Presented by IL Holstein Association President Jason Oertel

This year’s Illinois Holstein Senior Breeder started his career on a dairy farm raising cows, pigs, chickens…you name it! But his love and passion was for dairy cows. He showed Guernseys in high school at county fairs, state fairs and helped fit at national shows. In 1970, he married his high school sweetheart and the following year they bought a farm and turned black and white! Over the years, they have recieved several Junior All-American nominations, one Reserve Junior All-American, three Futurity winners, a State Fair Grand Champion as well as Premier Breeder and Exhibitor at the State Fair. The family farm has produced names such as Slim Rubie, Melvin Royale, Inspiration Nellie, Broker JJ and B-J-Grove Champion Hoover. This breeder has served on many local boards as well as being a State Show Chairmen, Illinois State President, Vice President and a Director for several years. He has also written a famous book of poems. The 2016 Senior Breeders are Bruce Clanton and his wife Joyce of B-J Grove Holsteins. Bruce and Joyce have two children, Lucas and Yvonne. Lucas and his wife Michelle are the parents of Bruce and Joyce’s two grandkids Kasey and Kyle. Congratulations to the Clantons!

Heinzmann Recognized with Junior Breeder Award The competitive nature of our Junior Breeder for 2017 started when he was a young kid competing in the show ring against his siblings and playing soccer with them after chores…then playing basketball in school where he still holds the record for the most fouls in a tournament! Our Junior Breeder went to the University of Illinois and his judging team won World Dairy Expo his senior year and is still known as a team that always argued about cows. His herd is averaging 88 lbs. without BST and he has four cows classified at EX-94. Ethan Heinzmann is the Genetics Manager at Golden Oaks Farm. Despite the intense competition among siblings in his family, his brother Aaron speaks on behalf of the family when he says they are proud and amazed at Ethan’s determination and accomplishments as a leader both at the farm and in his personal family life. Ethan helps to set the direction for the herd of 650 milking cows at Golden Oaks with a RHA of 28,668lbs milk, 3.68% fat and 3.22% protein. They have classified 50 EX cows and 150 VG cows and Ethan takes the honor in breeding Golden Oaks Sid Charlise, a Sid x Golden Oaks GC Chalise x Golden Oaks Champ Rae. Charlise was named Junior Champion at World Dairy Expo in 2015 and was also selected as the 2015 People’s Choice heifer. Congratulations to Ethan Heinzman, our 2016 Junior Breeder!
