The Illinois Holstein Association continued the Illinois Holstein of the Year contest that recognized an animal that had great success in 2017. This contest accepted nominations and results were based on votes from the Illinois Holstein Association’s Facebook page. Receiving the 2017 Illinois Holstein of the Year award was Miss Pottsdale Dfi Tang-Red EX-92. Tang, sired by Defiant, is a daughter of

AL-N-Tine Debonair Tart-ET EX-92. She had an incredible year in the show ring in 2017! She was named the Unanimous All-American Red & White Senior 3-Year-Old.

Congratulations to the owners of Tang, Golden Oaks Farm!

Bovre Receives 2017 Distinguished Service Award

Webster’s Dictionary defines service as the work performed by one that contributes to the welfare of others. This year’s Service Award winner has been actively involved in the Illinois Holstein Association for over 50 years. She began showing calves at the local shows and county fairs and found a fondness of the breed that has lasted a lifetime. In fact, you could say she lives and breathes the Holstein cow. From fitting clinics to employing youth, to serving as an official judge at a 4-H judging contest or writing questions for dairy bowl, she and her husband have been incredible mentors to youth while promoting the Registered Holstein breed. This Service Award winner was born and raised in Illinois. She attended the University of Illinois for a brief time, and even after leaving Illinois has been actively involved in the Illinois Holstein Association and a golden paid membership affiliate. She has donated countless hours to maintain the success of our State Holstein show as co-chairman and has assisted the Junior Show chairman for the past 3 years. Paula Bovre, our Service Award winner owns Great Northern Land and Cattle Company with her husband Rick for over 35 years and has managed over 850 sales. Paula is an agent for Merle Howard Insurance Agency that specializes in Livestock mortality. She has served as a World Dairy Expo Board director since 2012 and the International Junior Holstein Show Superintendent at World Dairy Expo from its inception in 2004. It is with great appreciation we acknowledge the numerous hours given to our organization as we present Paula Bovre with the 2017 Illinois Holstein Service Award. 20 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Spring 2018

Erbsen Awarded Senior Breeder Award

IL Holstein Senior Breeder Award Recipient Kevin Erbsen Pictured L-R: Illinois Holstein Association President Ed Smith, Delana Erbsen, Wendy Erbsen, Kevin Erbsen, Holstein Association USA President Boyd Schaufelberger, Sarah Butler, Payton Erbsen

This year’s Senior Breeder Award is known as a modest man of few words that possesses a great passion and unmatched work ethic. He has built a foundation herd breeding exceptional registered Holsteins with an emphasis on high type cow families. He is a successful longtime breeder that doesn’t follow the changing norm of the industry, but breeds for cattle he likes to look at as he milks. His standard has a proven reputation at the local and state level. His ability to see good cattle furnished him with a few judging trophies and a National DJM award. He has an extraordinary ability to remember good cows and their pedigrees. Starting out in the show ring was difficult as he didn’t immediately stand at the top, but after 30 years of breeding, he has champions at the state show, numerous Jr. AllAmerican nominations and bred a 2x All-American bull. This Senior Breeder is involved in his community by serving on the local insurance, Holstein and DHIA boards. In addition, he assists the local judging teams and has provided animals for the local judging contest for more than 25 years. Since the inception of the registered herd, which he has lead since 1994, there have been 165 Excellent cows, 340 Very Good cows, 20 Gold Metal Dams and 25 Dams of Merit. The farm has been named Premier Breeder at the Illinois Championship Holstein show more than 20 times along with receiving the Progressive Breeders Registry Award 28 times, possibly the most of any Illinois herd. The farm has had 20 Illinois Futurity winners, and is currently ranked 25th in the nation with a BAA of 112.6%. This Senior Breeder has devoted his entire life to the farm and has shared this passion with his wife of 20 years and two children. He is no stranger to the blue ribbon, but rarely is seen in the show ring or in front of an audience. Congratulations to this year’s Senior Breeder, Kevin Erbsen!

Carter Recognized with Junior Breeder Award Our Junior Breeder discovered a love for high genetic animals from his family, as they are no strangers to high-end cow breeding. He began showing and was determined to develop outstanding quality. His type herd and breeding really took off with the purchase of Mohrfield Supra Precious who has garnered a number of awards on the colored shavings in her own right. Our Junior Breeder has done a phenomenal job mating bredleading sires to Precious to develop many offspring that have gone on to make the Carters-Corner prefix synonymous with great breeding and outstanding quality homebred genetics. Our 2017 Junior Breeder is Tyler Carter! Tyler’s youth and great eye for cattle will continue to grow through the years, and it will be fun to watch the kind of cattle to come from Carters-Corner. Tyler is a graduate of Greenville High School and attended Kaskaskia College majoring in Dairy Science. During his time at Kaskaskia, he was a member of the KC Ag Club and KC Dairy Judging Team. Tyler’s collegiate judging career was highlighted by being named All-American at World Dairy Expo in 2011 finishing 8th and 3rd at NAILE. Congratulations to Tyler, our 2017 Junior Breeder! IL Holstein Junior Breeder Award Recipient Tyler Carter Presented by Holstein Association USA President Boyd Schaufelberger

In addition, a tour to Mackinac Island, charter boat fishing, wine tasting, tall ship sailing and climbing the sand dunes are just a few of the activities included on a full tour schedule. The Juniors will enjoy a Cows to Careers event where they can glean information about the careers available and mingle with professionals in the industry. A Holstein Block

party will encompass family fun night where contests, tournaments, food and fun will fill Sunday evening, July 1st, at the resort. The convention sale will be held on

Monday, July 2nd in the hotel ballroom with the cattle housed on the resort grounds. David Rama and Daniel Brandt along with the convention sale committee are lining up an outstanding offering of cattle fit for the National Convention Sale.

Michigan Juniors Plan a Unique National Convention Experience By Kristen Burkhardt The 2018 National Holstein Convention is quickly approaching us! Michigan is excited to be able to host such a prestigious event. The Michigan Junior Holstein Association (MJHA) has been gearing up to welcome youth from all over the United States to our very own home. And we are doing our best to make this a unique convention for all Juniors. First off, I would like to highlight how special our location is to the convention. The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is located in a scenic area highlighted by Lake Michigan. Because of the hotel location, most of the convention events are either at the hotel or very close by. We will be hosting the first ever “Cows to Careers” on Monday, July 2nd. This event will tie in a career fair in a talk show format! This 60 minute talk show will address important topics such as dressing for success, working with millennials, social media presence, how to make the most of a ride-along, and interviewing tips. After the conclusion of the talk show, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, juniors will be able to walk around the career fair and interact with industry professionals. Youth of

all ages are encouraged to bring their resume to see what schools and dairy industry jobs are represented at this career fair. Our unique convention continues with a float down the river to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, highlighter junior mixer, and the sale location. Many states may have mountains or long beaches, but we have gigantic sand hills called dunes that you can climb or run down to get to the water. Not to mention, one of Michiganders favorite activities during the summer includes tying multiple tubes together and floating down a river. Also, the junior mixer will have a twist to it this year. Instead of having a regular dance, each junior will receive a white shirt and highlighter to see how many youth from other states they can get to sign their shirt! Lastly, the sale location will be right at the hotel. This means that juniors can decide between the sale or our hospitality option or both. There will be a pool party right at the hotel for the juniors so they can attend the sale and then enjoy the pool! Michigan is eager to host the 2018 National Holstein Convention! We hope to see you there for a week full of fun, networking, and the best unlimited dairy bar yet! MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Spring 2018 - 33

2018 Wisconsin Holstein Barn Meetings How can technology fit into management of your Registered Holstein farm? The Wisconsin Holstein Association invites all members and area dairy farmers to the 2018 Barn Meetings. We have two farms serving as hosts, and while they are very different in size and scope, both operations are utilizing new technologies to achieve herd goals and improvement management of their dairy. If you are considering adding a robotic milking system, automatic calf feeders, or any other tecnological advancement, we encourage your to attend one of these barn meetings and learn first hand how it can help you achieve your goals. The schedule for the barn meetings are: Thursday, March 22 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Village View Farm, Argyle (Green/Lafayette County) Kevin & RaeAnn Makos family 1295 County Rd. C, Argyle, Wis. • 608-214-9682 Directions: Take Highway 81 east of Argyle to County C, left on County C to the first farm on the right. Tuesday, March 27 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Alfalawn Farm, Menomonie (Dunn County) Randy, David & Dale Styer families E2850 St. Rd. 72, Menomonie, Wis. • 715-505-8161 Dave’s cell Directions: From Menomonie take highway 25 south to Downsville then go west 4.5 miles on State Highway 72. The dairy is on the south side and the heifer set-up is on the north side. All barn meetings are open to any interested Holstein breeder. For more information on the barn meetings please call the Wisconsin Holstein Association or the host farm.

Village View Farm Kevin & RaeAnn Makos family Kevin and RaeAnn Makos and their sons, Cole and Kory, will be hosting a Barn Meeting on Thursday, March 22 at their Village View Farm near Argyle. The Makos family has been milking their 75-cow Registered Holstein herd with a Lely Astronaut robotic milker since 2014. The current rolling herd average is 27,936 3.9 1078 3.1 971. They also crop 275 acres and feed out all of their bull calves as steers. Village View Farm was started in 1963 by Kevin’s parents, Martin and Barb Makos. The Makos family has owned Registered Holsteins for 45 years and have had a closed herd since 1993. Kevin and RaeAnn moved to the family farm after they were married in 1997 and began buying some of the cattle in 2001. By 2012 they had purchased the farm and were milking between 75-80 cows. Today, Kevin and RaeAnn handle the milking herd while Cole and Kory help with raising the youngstock. Martin also still helps with mixing feed and crops. Kevin makes all of his own breeding decisions and states, “I have always tried breeding for the complete cow. I don’t really like ugly cows!” But he also realizes they need to produce enough to pay the bills. He likes using bulls that offer both type and production and very seldom uses bulls less than +2.00 on Type. He also looks for bulls that are at least +500 on milk and positive on components. Kevin uses mostly proven bulls and is currently using Kingboy, Yoder, Pety and Kingpin, but also uses a few genomic young sires including Doppler, King Royal and Diamondback. Some of the best young cows in the herd are sired by Atwood and Gold Chip and there are several Bradnick daughters that are fresh and look great. While the Makos family has made many changes over the years, the real game changer came in 2014 when they built a new freestall barn 42 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Spring 2018

and began milking with the Lely Astronaut robotic milker. With their sons getting older and becoming more involved in activities, they had initially begun looking at robotic milkers back in 2010 and visited several farms that used the system. After seeing how other operations were run, they believed this was the way to go for their family farm. Each cow wears a transponder which is read each time the cow walks into the stall. The robot identifies the cow and reads where the cow is positioned in order to attach the milker. The computer also sends a message to Kevin’s phone if something has gone wrong or if a cow has not been milked recently. “The information the robot provides and keeps track of is unbelievable,” Kevin says. “From daily production to rumination to finding cows in heat through activity monitoring, we know our cows better than we ever thought possible.” The Makos family encourages everyone to join them for the barn meeting on March 27 to see how a robotic milking system can work for a small farm. Kevin and RaeAnn both agree that the addition of the robot was a great change for their family, allowing them to attend the boys’ games and activities regularly and it also freed up more time for other farm chores and crop work. Kevin stated, “We would love to have you come see the future of milking cows for small farms that don’t want to hire help but still love their cows!” Village View Farm is located at 1295 County Road C, Argyle. Along with being able to view the Lely Astronaut system in use, visitors will be able to view the herd and enjoy lunch.

Alfalawn Farms Randy, David & Dale Styer families The second barn meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 27 at Alfalawn Farm near Menomonie, Wis. The Styer families invite you to visit their farm and see the technological improvements they’ve made over the years that are helping with management of their dairy. Alfalawn Farm has had Registered Holsteins for over 40 years and is currently milking around 2000 cows that are averaging 83 pounds of milk on 3x/day milking. The rolling herd average is a little over 26,500 milk with 1058 pounds of fat and 847 pounds protein. Cows are milked in a 60-stall DeLaval rotary parlor and the herd maintains a cell count of around 80,000-90,000. All heifers are raised on site, utilizing robotic calf feeders for the first two months of age. After weaning, they are in group pens through five months of age and then moved to a freestall set-up until about 4-6 weeks pre-calving. The family raises some steers and has a variety of other livestock as well. Things have changed quite a bit over the last 15-20 years at Alfalawn Farm. Any improvements that were done were with the goal to try to become more efficient. They are always looking for ways to be better at what they do. The farm has added everything from GPS on the crop side to the rotary parlor with automated pre- and postdippers on the dairy side. A sand separation system was added which recycles 98% of the sand from the dairy. Milk weights are captured at each milking and the addition of the robotic feeders for the calves was a great addition for young calf management. Alfalawn Farm is owned by brothers Randy, David and Dale Styer. A true family operation, members from all three families help with the day-to-day management of the dairy. Randy manages the crops and youngstock. His friend Heather works with the young calves while Randy’s children Gavin and Brittney help with crops and youngstock. Gavin also has his own custom chopping business. Their youngest daughter Chloe helps with the young calves as well. David and his wife Karen work with the cows and manage the


sandroom where the sand separation takes place. David also takes care of the farm’s financials. Their sons Ben and Brian help in the calf barn and work with the pigs, chickens and show heifers. Daughter Sarah is currently in her first year at med school at UW-Madison while Krista is currently attending college at the University of Minnesota where she is president of the Gopher Dairy Club and a member of the Dairy Judging Team. Dale manages the steers, hauls cattle and has night-time sandroom duty. His son Kade is in charge of the farm’s IT work including cameras, internet connections and sound systems, and also helps with the baby bull calves. Another son Reed handles the goats and helps with the steers, while stepson Zach works in the older heifer barn and helps with the steers and hauling cattle. Deric Wolf has been herdsman at Alfalawn Farm for 16 years and is also part owner of Pure Pride Show Cattle with Jim Gilgenbach. The Styer family is happy to see the success that Deric and Jim have had with their show cattle. Alfalawn strives to breed for cows that are going to have longevity

while milking well with high components. They look for cows with moderate stature, front end strength, balanced udders with correct teat placement, and extremely good feet and legs. Their true type cow is a cow that is going to stay in the herd for a long period of time while doing what she does best - milking, breeding back easily, and remaining trouble free. The Alfalawn team also likes to work with good cow families with a proven history. Bulls are selected for the traits that are most important to meet their breeding goals. First by selecting from strong cow families, while also looking at milk, fat, protein, somatic cell count, type and Net Merit dollars, all the while maintaining an emphasis on DPR. The Styers enjoy hosting tours and having other educational events on their farm. Dave says, “We strongly believe that we all have an obligation to promote our industry and to do what we can to close the educational gap that we have with the public. We know we don’t have all the answers, but are trying to improve every day and share our story good and bad along the way.”

HIGH-RANKING BAA% HERDS FROM MINNESOTA AND SOUTH DAKOTA

I

n early January, Holstein Association USA released the lists of the top Holstein Breed Age Average (BAA%) herds for 2017 classifications. A number of herds from Minnesota and South Dakota ranked in the list of Overall Top 200 BAA Herds for 2017. The top herd from Minnesota was Esperanza Cattle Co. with a rank of 16 overall on the list and a rank of six on the list for Herds of 10 to 25 Cows. They recorded a BAA of 113 with 13 cows. Esperanza Cattle Co. is owned by Jay and Barb Morrison and located near Peterson, Minn. Willolea Holsteins of Underwood, Minn., came in the 19th spot with a BAA of 112.6 for 36 cows and a rank of 9 on the list for Herds of 26 to 50 cows. Several herds from Minnesota and South Dakota made the top 200 list and respective lists for herd size. Minnesota Holstein Association would like to congratulate all of these herds for this achievement. The tables at right show the appearance of Minnesota and South Dakota Herds on the Top 200 List and lists based on herd size. To see the lists with all states included and also a ranking by region, visit: www.holsteinusa. com. Holstein Breed Age Average (BAA%) value provides a way to compare the score of an animal (and herd average) to the average of the breed, taking into account age of the animal and stage of lactation. All animals receive an individual BAA value on the herd classification report, and herds participating in the Classic or Standard options of the Holstein Classification program receive an overall BAA for the herd. In 2017, 1,303 herds had a BAA value eligible for inclusion in these lists. The average number of cows included in the BAA calculation for the entire group was 64, and the average BAA% was 106.5. For the purposes of these lists, if a herd classified twice in a year (between 1/1/2017 and 12/31/2017) and received an official herd BAA for both classifications, only the most recent BAA was used. To appear on these lists, a herd must have at least 10 cows included in the BAA calculation.
