FROM THE PRESIDENT I’ve always enjoyed the one liners that are used at various times, such as “Go Big or Go Home”, “If ya can’t run with the Big Dogs stay on the porch”, or one of my favorites , “It takes a Big Dog to weigh a ton”. All of these statements imply that bigger is better which opens a never ending debate of is bigger always better? I think we can all agree that it depends, while the trend in business is that being bigger helps spread risk or improve profitability many times improved efficiency and quality are the goals and being bigger may just be a side effect. That’s probably enough of my ramblings on business for today. Whatever your plans include keep Illinois Holstein Association in mind as your link to improved genetics by making a purchase or in the Illini Futures Sale, Illinois Golden Opportunity Sale or one of our local club sponsored sales. I would like to thank the hosts for this year’s state picnic, Mil-R-Mor Farms, for their gracious hospitality and the excellent job to prepare for the event. I would also like to extend congratulations to Bob and Kaye Miller for all of the hard work they’ve put in over the years that earned them the well deserved Elite Breeder honor at this year’s National Convention. Also congratulations to

_______________

the Illinois Juniors for their superb showing at National Convention. Proof once again that the next generation of Illinois dairymen and women are in good hands. Speaking of National Convention, we are now less than two years away from the 2015 National Convention. As anticipation builds remember “All Roads Lead to Illinois.” I am looking forward to the 2013 Senior Holstein Convention to be hosted by the Clinton County Club, December 5-6 in O’Fallon, Ill. Registration form can be found on Page 23 or on www.illinoisholsteins.com. Also, mark your calendars for our second Illini Futures Sale, December 5. I look forward to seeing you there. This message concludes three years as IHA president. Over this time, several changes have been made; hopefully a majority of them have led to IHA being a srtonger organization. I am grateful for the opportunity to have lead an organization that has meant so much to me both as a junior member and today. Many of my best friends I’ve gotten to know at IHA functions. Good luck to our next President­— I’m sure he’ll do an excellent job.

FROM THE BOARD Dear Holstein Breeders, During the recent genetic evaluation, two more haplotypes effecting fertility were disclosed in the Holstein breed. To be quite frank, these two additional haplotypes are not likely to be the last as genomics allows us to dig deeper into the genetic code than ever before. In the latest work, Animal Improvement Programs Laboratory (AIPL) scientists identified HH4 and HH5 which have low carrier frequencies of 0.7 and 5.0 percent, respectively in Holstein populations. While animals that carry such haplotypes appear normal, when mated to a carrier, one in four progeny would inherit two copies of the suspect haplotype. Depending on the defect, the offspring will not survive long enough to be born or die at birth. The HH4 defect reduces conception rates by 3 percent. The defect traces back to the French bull Jocko Besne. As a result, the carrier frequency in France is 7.2 percent versus 0.7 percent in North America. Meanwhile, with HH5, nearly all pregnancies are lost before 60 days of gestation resulting in a 3.5 percent reduction in perceived conception rates. While the defect traces back to Thornlea Texal Supreme born in 1957, the modern-day bull that is a carrier is Picston Shottle. Page 6

Moving forward, scientists will be able to determine previously known genetic recessives, both good and bad, through the haplotype process (Brachyspina, BLAD, CVM, DUMPS, Mulefoot, polled and red coat color). That situation will allow Holstein to further bundle genetic tests and reduce time and costs for all members. Speaking of genetic tests, the Elite Cow project has been proceeding quite well. It was originally an idea from long-time Holstein breeder, Bob Miller. The purpose was to identify long-lived, high type cows, sample their DNA through genomics and then compare them to the overall Holstein population. Holstein identified 1,442 cows born from born within a predefined time period where cows that were 85 points or higher over 150,000 lifetime might

Make Plans to Help with the 2015 National Holstein Convention! “All Roads Lead to Illinois” is the theme for the Convention, and we will need many hands in helping create a successful National Convention! Convention is June 23-27 in St. Charles, Ill. Call Ron Schaufelberger or Dale Drendel to volunteer! still be living. After an invitation to participate in the study was extended, breeders submitted 696 samples for nearly a 50 percent response rate. We all look forward to learning more from the study as research ensues. Another separate, but very valuable research project that Holstein is working on is a wide-ranging feed efficiency study. This research will prove valuable at identifying unique genetics that better convert feed to milk. Lastly, Holstein is working with Red and White to fully handle their registration process after the Red and White Dairy Cattle Association membership approved the joint venture by an 89 percent vote earlier this year. As a result, one certificate will register both Holsteins and Red and Whites. Additionally, Holstein will classify all Red and Whites moving forward. It is expected the two breed databases will be reconciled by year’s end. This is just some of the joint initiatives between the two groups. Moving forward, each organization will continue to handle their own magazines and maintain separate membership roles. Our next national board meeting is scheduled for November 21 and 22. If you have any matters that should be brought to our attention, please give us a call. Your National Directors, Paul Buhr, Corey Geiger Mark Kerndt, Boyd Schaufelberger Fall 2013

Illinois Holstein Championship Show Dedication The 2013 Illinois Championship Holstein Show is dedicated to the Kunkel family, of Blukel Holstein Farm in Granville. They would like to personally thank the association for this honor with the following: “It is an Honor to have the 2013 State Holstein Show dedicated to us. We want to congratulate all the exhibitors who work so hard to present their cattle at the show this year. If you are showing an animal today that is the offspring of a cow that carries your prefix, know that you have two admirers. That’s how we did it.” Almost all the animals shown by the Kunkel families were backed by multiple generations of Blukel prefix, starting with their first registered animal in 1943. They enjoyed presenting their cows at the area county fairs and 25 years later, their homebred Holsteins produced the 1968 Illinois State Fair Grand Champion. Their success at the state level continued though the 1970s and 1980s. Highlights included winning Grand Champions, Premier Breeder and Exhibitor awards, Best Three Females, and many times standing towards the top of the class; including many of the junior show classes. During that time they also had numerous cows sell to dairymen in other states, including one that graced the cover the Holstein World. Also with the help from some friends here in Page 12

Illinois they were able to export a good number of animals. Their most successful export was a homebred bull that was Reserve All-American back in the days when bulls were shown. He had a successful career in Japan including a Grand Champion daughter at the National Show. Besides showing, they also became a state leader in the milk production awards and topping the list for the highest BAA. There have been 92 Excellent and 261 Very Good Blukel Holsteins. Their greatest enjoyment from showing was the involvement of their families. From having their wives watching at the show ring, to their combined 9 children (all boys) showing in the junior shows and being around and helping during the open shows. Of the nine, Kevin remained with the Dairy and took over the operation and continued the tradition of breeding excellent cows. This allowed them to dedicate more time to the crops and spending more time with family as they became adults. Today they enjoy the privilege of being full-time grandpas and great grandpas while still overseeing their fields. As for the Holsteins, we have down-sized to a group

of heifers as Kevin begins to enjoy life being a grandpa. The Mitchell family of Winnebago purchased the Kunkel’s milking herd of 28 cows in January of 2011. Of these cows, 9 have classified Excellent, 17 Very Good, and 2 Good Plus. “We are extremely grateful to be honored by the Illinois Holstein Association and are humbled to join the list of names that have received this recognition in the past. We are also eternally grateful to those who have had a leadership role in the Junior Association and 4-H. Whether helping with the show ring or judging team, or just spending time with our children, you have truly enriched the lives of our families,” Kevin & Eugene Kunkel.

DUTCHESS DOMAIN

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

First off I would like to say how excited I am to introduce myself as the 2013-2014 Illinois State Holstein Dutchess! I am the 18-year-old daughter of Keith and Carolyn Bollech of Kingston, Illinois. I graduated from Genoa-Kingston High School this spring and am currently a freshman at Northern Illinois University where I am majoring in Biochemistry. In the future I hope to pursue a career manufacturing drugs for livestock. I am a member of the Tri-County Holstein Association and currently serve as the State Junior Association president. Since being crowned dutchess, I have had the opportunity to hand out awards at the State Show, Illinois State Fair and multiple county fairs. It was great seeing so many familiar faces and meeting many new Holstein Breeders. I was also able to spend some time in the dairy building at the state fair. While there I was able to answer many questions consumers had about the dairy industry.

I would like to congratulate all of the exhibitors this year as well as the Little Miss Holstein Dutchess, Delana Erbsen, as well as the 1st Runner up, Becca Sprague. I would like to thank all of the Dutchess contestants for their help during state show. I would also like to thank the Miller family for hosting the State Picnic, they did a terrific job! Serving as the Illinois Holstein Dutchess has already been an amazing experience and I look forward to all of the upcoming events. I would like to wish everyone luck at the fall shows and I hope to see many of you there. You can stay up to date with the Illinois Holstein Association’s website and their Facebook page as well as the junior’s Facebook page.

Little Miss Holstein -- Delana Erbsen -Northwest Holstein Club

of the Northwest District show, a heifer she showed at the Illinois Championship Show the year before. She also exhibited the Junior AllIllinois Spring Yearling this year at State Show. Delana participated on the NW dairy quiz bowl team at Spring Thing and judged at the local contest. This is Delana’s first year in the Clever Clover 4-H club.

Delana Erbsen is the 8-year-old of Kevin and Wendy Erbsen, of Erbacres Holsteins, Lanark. She will be a fourth grader this fall. Delana enjoys playing on Eastland’s softball, and basketball teams; this fall she will play on the community football team as well. Delana enjoys reading, PE and Math in school. She spends the majority of her free time working on the farm and feeding the calves after school. Recently Delana showed the Junior champion

IN MEMORIAM Robert Joseph Gerloff Robert Joseph Gerloff, 87, passed away at his home in rural Woodstock, September 10, 2013, in the same house where he was born, on the farm where he lived his whole life. He was born to August and Helena (Stake) Gerloff on July 14, 1926, along with his twin sister Ruth (Hemmingsen Case), joining their older sister Evelyn (Hart) to complete the family unit. Bob married Eleanor Lorraine Eckert on May 24, 1952, in Grace Lutheran Church, Woodstock, and with her raised five children. Eleanor became active in Bob’s dairy business, resulting in a partnership that lasted throughout their married life. In 1972, Bob and Eleanor sold their first registered bull for use in artificial insemination. The sale of registered dairy cattle from their small family farm to Holstein breeders on five different continents has left a lasting genetic legacy in the global dairy industry. Their dairy herd was routinely among the top herds in the county and state in dairy Illinois Holstein Herald

Morgan Bollech (815)980-4679 MBollech@gmail.com

Thank you to the Illinois Holstein Association for the honor of Grand Champion of the Junior Show at the Illinois championship show. It was a real honor for Divinity and I to receive this award. I appreciated your continued support of the Junior Holstein Association. Sincerely, Nathan Erbsen On behalf of the Kunkel Family at Blukel Holstein Farm, I would like to thank the Illinois Holstein Association for the honor of State Show Dedication. We are truly grateful that we where chosen. I wish to congratulate all the exhibitors of the State Show and Il State Fair, this year truly show Illinois is home to many fine cattle. YOU made these shows some of the best in the nation. Kevin Kunkel

production. Both Bob and Eleanor valued education and willingly sent all five children to college with the income of their small farm. Bob’s grandparents bought the farm in 1895 and Bob began running it in 1944, at the age of 17, after his father passed away; eventually purchasing it from the family estate. The family celebrated the farm’s centennial in 1995. Bob was a long-time member of Woodstock Progressive Milk Producers Association, a farmer-run co-operative, and served for many years on the Board of Directors. When he retired from milking in 1996, he became executive-secretary of the Association and held that job part-time until his passing. Over the years, Bob served as member and officer on many agriculture-related boards including McHenry-Lake County Holstein Association and the McHenry-Lake Dairy Herd Improvement Association (DHIA). After he retired from milking, he volunteered as a docent at the McHenry County Historical Society, sharing his knowledge of farming with school groups. Bob was known for his self-discipline and

hard work—he milked cows almost daily from age 9 to 70—as well as his kindness, gentleness, personal integrity, wisdom, and strength of character. He loved animals and had a profound appreciation of the natural world—and his weather predictions were right every time! Survivors include two sons, Bruce (Lois) Gerloff of Woodstock and Brian (Carole) Gerloff of Woodstock; three daughters, Pamela Gerloff of Woodstock, Jane Gerloff of Woodstock, and Lisa (Bill) Banker of Harvard; five grandchildren, Matthew, Sarah, and Daniel Gerloff and Robert and Joseph Gerloff; a sister, Evelyn Hart and a sister-inlaw, Edna Steadman, both of Woodstock; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, and his twin sister Ruth. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Grace Lutheran Church, Woodstock; the McHenry County Historical Society, 6422 Main Street, Union, IL 60180; or Illinois Holstein Association Scholarship Fund, c/o Carol Jones, Treasurer, 23485 N. 3100 E Road, Emington, IL 60934-9801.

The University of

WISCONSIN MADISON Dairy Science Student Profile Name: Breinne Hendrickson Hometown: Belleville, WI High School: Belleville High School Class Size: 72 Farm: Jeffrey-Way Holsteins Major: Dairy Science and Life Sciences Communication Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? I chose to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison because I knew I would receive a tremendous education both in and outside of the classroom. I also knew the staff and courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison would be top of the line. What has been your most memorable college experience? I would say the Royal, ADSAs and Marketing Team competition, as well as working at World Dairy Expo. I can’t stress enough how exposure to off-campus activities is extremely important in order to build relationships and networks within the agricultural industry. What has been your favorite course? Dairy Science 305 (Lactation Physiology) because I loved understanding the biological and molecular level as to how cows provide milk and ways to improve milk production in each individual cow. LSC 360 (Information Radio) was another favorite of mine; I was able to create a 30-minute radio show! What are your future career goals? I would like to obtain a career in marketing and communications within the dairy industry, then eventually manage my own dairy promotion and advertising business. I will also be living on a farm upon graduation to continue to grow my own Registered Holstein herd.

One of the most frequently asked questions by one breeder to another is “What looks good at your place?” At our farm, we would have to say the Sanchez, Gabor and Atwood daughters as two year olds. Everyone knows about the Sanchez and Atwoods, but the Gabors are almost as good type-wise and milk better than any group of two year olds we have calved in. Our 13 that have completed their first lactation average actual 305 days of 30,504 lbs. Our close-up heifers are led by Lauthority and Guthrie daughters and breeding age heifers by Hero. Through the whole heifer population, our Atwoods continue to shine. That’s what looks good here!

MARATHON COUNTY HOLSTEIN BREEDERS

Introducing...

Dream Team Holsteins

Don and Jenna Fahey met at the Marathon County Fair and started dating after a mutual friend’s wedding. They started buying show calves together only a couple years after they started dating and were married on July 23, 2005. Don has been a hoof trimmer for over 15 years. Jenna has a Bachelor’s degree in nursing and currently works four days a week at an ambulatory surgery center. They have a two year old daughter Malayna, born May 6, 2011, and have another girl on the way and due in mid-November. They started building their herd about six years ago when they purchased Sabofarm Dundee Desiree (in partnership with Jenna’s parents, Rick and Kathy Seefeldt, and Jason Mell), Sabofarm Advent Suki (in partnership with Jason Mell) and Rock-Holm Dundee Harriet (in partnership with Nathan King). All three were housed at Jenna’s parents farm, Seefeldt Acres at that time. In January 2011, they purchased a farm from Jason Mell in Merrill, WI and started remodeling the barn. Jenna’s parents sold their cows in September of that year and the Fahey’s cows were then housed at a friend’s farm until the barn was completed in November. Jason has been a great partner, helping the Fahey’s fill the barn Malayna Fahey with good cows. Don and Jenna started milking with 12 cows and eventually got the barn full, which has 26 tie-stalls and 3 box stalls. They herd also currently consists of about 15 heifers and six calves as well. The herd is bred for high type and longevity and the couple loves good feet and legs and depth of ribs in their cows. They are currently using Guthrie, Sid, Absolute, Gold Chip, Destry and Windbrook. Sabofarm Dundee Desiree, now scored EX-93, is currently just fresh and being flushed to Gold Chip. She comes from 10 generations of Excellent dams. Her VG-87 Goldwyn daughter is also just fresh with her second calf. Sabofarm Advent Suki just went EX-90 at their last classification and has many daughters on the ground, including a VG-87 Sanchez that is also just fresh with her second calf. Rock-Holm Dundee Harriet, EX-90, will be flushed soon to Gold Chip, after Sabofarm Dundee Desiree EX-93 calving this summer with a Guthrie heifer calf. She recently was named Honorable Mention Grand Champion at the Central WI State Fair. Another favorite in the herd is a VG-85 Atwood three-year-old coming from three generations of EX-94 dams that was purchased with Nathan King as a calf. They are excited to see what her Dundee heifer calf will develop into and look forward to flushing her as well. The future of the herd looks bright, as they try to build off of our foundation cows. Inquires are always welcome! Don and Jenna would like to thank their family, Rick and Kathy Seefeldt, Heather, Paul, Tyler and Abby Giddings, and friends Josh Breuch and Kevin Bergdoll for helping at the shows this summer. It is really appreciated! Dream Team Holsteins would also like to thank the Marathon County Holstein Breeders for sponsoring this ad.

June Board Meeting Notes The June meeting of the Board of Directors of the Illinois Holstein Association was called to order at 12:40 p.m. on Friday, June 14th at the Chateau in Bloomington, Illinois. Seventeen Board members were present, along with 4 guests and 2 staff members. The minutes of the January 2013 meeting were reviewed and approved by the group after a motion from Harvey Harpstrite which was seconded by Mike Netemeyer. Treasurer’s Reports were handed out and time was given for review and discussion. A motion to approve the Treasurer’s Report was made by Gary Janssen and seconded by Ed Smith, the motion carried. Old Business A brief re-cap of the 2013 Illini Golden Opportunity Sale was given as the Treasurer’s Reports were reviewed. Treasurer Carol Jones’ figures show the profit was around $8,000. 2015 National Convention – Illinois will have a booth at the 2013 National Convention in Indianapolis with a banner and giveaways. There was a half-page ad in the summer Herald. Sponsor solicitation letters will go out after State Show. There will be a Chairmen’s meeting in October in conjunction with the Page 16

next Board meeting. Joann Hartmann set up a checking account at State Bank of Waterloo for National Convention expenses. Orion Samuelson has been confirmed as the banquet speaker. New Business 2013 State Shows will be held July 18 & 19 at the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln again this year. Co-Chairman Brian Wesemann gave an update on fundraising efforts and said $7,260 has been committed in sponsorships to-date. Response to offering Breeder Sponsorship of Classes/Awards has been very good and they are close to that $1,000 goal. The fairgrounds rental (including 3 barns and manure removal) will be $6,000. The contract is only for this year. The 2013 State Picnic will be held Saturday, September 21st at Mil-R-Mor, Orangeville, Illinois. The 2013 Illinois Convention will be hosted by the Clinton County Club, December 4-6 at the Regency Hilton Garden Inn, O’Fallon, Illinois. We are also planning to have a Futures Sale at the event like last year. We’ve had a great response to our 2013-14 membership campaign, but there are still over

200 unpaid “renewals”! Secretary Tina Yagow handed out lists to each club naming those who have not renewed yet and asking that they be contacted in person by a Club Director. We currently have 196 paid Junior & 444 paid Senior members, which is very similar to last year’s membership. Included in those numbers are 20 new Junior members and 5 new Seniors, plus 7 former Juniors “aged-up” to Senior status. Income is over $21,000 and we had budgeted $20,000! There is realistic potential for MEMBERSHIP GROWTH for the first time in years…if we get some of those 200 “unpaid” renewals! Discussion took place about whether we want to have the Illini Golden Opportunity (State) Sale in the spring or fall in the future. Clubs in the Southern part of the state expressed concern over having the State Sale in the Spring because it will be so close to the Clinton County Classic. Ron Schaufelberger moved that we move the state sale back to fall beginning in 2014 and the motion was seconded by Jim Schumacher. The motion passed on a vote of 8 in favor, 4 against, and 5 abstentions. A motion to adjourn was made by Joann Hartman, seconded by Brian Olbrich and carried. The meeting adjourned at 2 p.m. Fall 2013

ILLINOIS JUNIOR JOURNEYS Junior Annual Meeting There were 25 members present at the meeting of the Illinois Jr. Holstein Association on July 17, 2013, held in the show ring following the dutchess contest. Vice-President Emily Irwin called the meeting to order at 7:18. We first discussed changing the state show rule about owning your own animal for showmanship. Several things were brought up, but it was moved by Bailey Hart and seconded by Becca Sprague to table the decision until the annual meeting at Spring Thing. We then discussed possibly changing the state show order from showmanship then heifers then cows to starting with cows first. Comments included that there would be less people watching the heifer show if it was at the end, it would be easier to bag the cows if we started with them, if showmanship was last, the judge would have the opportunity to watch all day. This discussion was tabled until spring thing by Becca Sprague and seconded by Morgan Wendling. It was also discussed that because we have the rule that when you win a showmanship class, regardless of age, you have to move up to the next class, and if you win all classes and are still jr aged you can’t compete anymore. It was

suggested that we should have a showman of showman class for those that have won senior and can’t compete in the regular showmanship, and we could maybe put the winners of the Junior, Intermediate, and Senior in it too. This would be a good opportunity for younger members to learn from the older members. Anna Folgate moved, and Connor Erbsen seconded the motion to table this to the spring thing meeting. Next, we held officer elections, and our new officers are as follows: President: Morgan Bollech Vice President: Anna Folgate Secretary: Emily Irwin Treasurer: Bailey Hart Reporter: Morgan Wendling Following the elections, we discussed when we should have our next summer meeting, and the consensus was to leave it as it has been. It was brought up that we need to make some decisions about state show for next year because a recommendation would need to be brought up to the Senior Association in January, so Anna Folgate moved to have cows show first, then heifers, then showmanship, and Morgan Wendling seconded the motion. Becca Sprague moved to adjourn the meeting and Brady Henizmann seconded..
