FROM THE PRESIDENT__ _ FROM THE DIRECTOR I hope everyone is enjoying the winter. So far so good, halfway through February and no major weather incidents. This has been some of the most pleasant winter weather I can remember. Lets hope it continues! Our change to having committee meetings in January was very encouraging. Attendance was super and to see a packed room for the first National Convention committee meeting was definitely exciting. Its safe to say there is a lot of interest and excitement among our members in the upcoming 2015 National Convention. Believe it or not it’s spring show and sale season. I hope to see many of you along the way. Good luck to all The Wendling family: Kevin and Jennifer, involved whether exhibitor, back, Morgan, left, Macy, right, consignor, buyer, or spectator. and Gaige, center. One of the changes made during the January committee meetings included a move for the 2012 Illinois Championship Show from the Interstate Center in Bloomington to the Logan County Fairgrounds in Lincoln. The decision was made due to a variety of reasons and I look forward to seeing another outstanding show there. As I looked through the news archives on the Illinois Holstein Association website I couldn’t help but notice all of the great Holstein people that we lost during the past year. People that touched lives across the state and beyond in many ways, People that will be remembered for some time to come for their contributions. It seems our industry sees never ending advances in technology, from the field to the barn. There are a multitude of newly developed tools available to make us more efficient and profitable. It’s definitely an exciting time in agriculture! Be sure to find what works best for you and keep moving forward!

Kevin Wendling

2011 was a great year for business activity for Holstein USA. Over 360,000 holsteins were registered which was the most since 1995. There continues to be lots of interest in adding value through registered Holsteins. Holstein USA has a new dairy herd management software program that is available now. Dairy “Rythms” is tailored to meet the needs of breeders through the ability to synch information between the Holstein USA database and your home PC. Classification and genetic information can be quickly accessed which will make management of your registered Holsteins more convenient. Contact Callie Unruh to learn more and get set up with the program. Your Board of Directors continues to work with other dairy industry sectors to maintain a reliable genetic evaluation system. The Holstein Association recently presented a proposal to the industry that would allow breeders to have a major voice in how the system works and who controls the database. We firmly believe this is critical to keep U.S. genetics the gold standard for the world. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about this issue. I am looking forward to spring so that we can replenish our short forage supply. I hope to see you at one of the spring sales. Remember to make plans to attend the Convention in Springfield, Mo. It will be a great time to make new friends and enjoy good Holstein fellowship.

DUTCHESS DOMAIN__

______ FROM THE FIELD

Hello to all Illinois Holstein Breeders! My final college semester has been, and will continue to be full; a good way to end an exciting college career. Since being back at school, I have been keeping busy with activities in the dairy industry. Planning has been underway for a year as the Illini Dairy Club is hosting (or when you get this, will have hosted) the Midwest ADSA-SAD (American Dairy Science AssociationStudent Affiliate Division) convention February 24-25th in Champaign. This is the first time for the club to host this event since 2001. Approximately 450 students and advisors from throughout the Midwest, along with industry people, will be in attendance. It has been a great opportunity and challenge to plan such an event! Also since being back on campus, I was able to represent the University of Illinois, along with two others, at the Midwest Dairy Challenge hosted by Kansas State. That too, was a great experience; and a learning opportunity for sure. Gene McCoy has planned what I am sure will be a great spring break trip to California, of which I am excited to be a part. In other campus dairy related news, the Illini Dairy Club will be hosting the Illinois PDCA calf sale and as a co-chair again this year, we would love to see you there! There will be other sales this spring, as well, and no better time to pick out some summer show prospects or just to add a little new genetics to your herd. As I am graduating in May (not sure what/where I will be working) I hope to see everyone this spring and wish you all luck as fieldwork and show season begins! Excited for warmer weather and seeing you around!

Greetings! This mild winter we have been experiencing has been a nice surprise. Hopefully we can finish out the winter with the same sunshine and warm temperatures. First off I would like to give you all a BIG “Thank You!” for your continued business with Holstein Association USA. Because of you, 2011 was a record year for us. As of December 31, 2011 Holstein USA registered 360,149 animals. This has been the highest growth in registrations we have seen since 1995. We exceeded our 2010 totals by over 20,000 animals which is an increase of 6%. We by no means could have reached this goal without our loyal customers who believe in the value of the Registered Holstein, and I want to give a sincere Thank You to each and every one of you! February is well underway, and Holstein has some new exciting things to offer our customers in 2012. To begin, I would like to share with you the added benefits of the Complete program. For Holstein Complete herds, we are now offering discounts when Genomic testing multiple animals. Here is a breakdown of the discounts: • Regular price for tests 1 through 14 ordered. • 3% discount on 15th-50th genomic tests ordered. • 7% discount on any tests beyond the 50th. Discounts will be applied as credits to members’ Holstein accounts at the end of their current COMPLETE enrollment period, and discounts do not carry over from one enrollment year to the next. If you have questions, or would like to learn more about the Complete program, please do not hesitate to contact me. Additionally we are excited to announce the launch of our new herd management software Dairy Rhythms. Rhythms combines herd health and breeding information with genetic and classification information from Holstein Association USA and production records from AgriTech Analytics. If you are interested in gaining more knowledge about this program, Holstein will be holding an informative webinar Monday, March 12th at 1p.m. ET. Please contact Holstein USA, or myself to get signed up for this webinar. Once again I look forward to seeing you all on farm, at upcoming meetings, conventions and shows. I wish 2012 to be a prosperous year for everyone and please contact me if you need anything at all.

_LETTER TO THE EDITOR I would like to thank the Illinois Holstein Association and the Kenneth Erbsen family for the beautiful clock presented at the January Committee meetings. Receiving the 2011 Service Award was a great surprise. I would be remiss if I didn’t also thank my family who was supportive of my work with the IHA. We spent a lot of quality family time in assembly line fashion folding, stuffing, labeling and stamping over the years. It was truly a pleasure to work with everyone involved in the Illinois Holstein Association; thank you again. Lori Lyons Page 7


Illinois Board of Directors meeting President Wendling called the meeting to order at 9:10 a.m., on January 4, 2012, in Bloomington, Ill. Secretary Tina Yagow took the roll of members in attendance. Minutes from the last meeting of the Board in December were handed out and a motion to approve them was made by Jim Schumacher, seconded by Dale Drendel and approved by the group. New Treasurer Carol Jones was introduced and President Wendling informed the Board that the checking account is being transferred to Campus State Bank near Carol’s home with a balance over $52,000. The following 2012 Committee Reports were read to the Board: Dutchess and Little Miss Holstein Committee Report Chairman: Lori Lyons The 2012 Dutchess competition will be held the evening before the Junior Championship Show with a 5:30 p.m. start time. It will be held in the show ring or another site on the fairgrounds and the deadline for entries will be June 15th. Last year there were two Dutchess and two Little Miss Holstein Contestants and we would like to increase participation in the future. There seem to be very few girls in the Dutchess age group, however. It was suggested that we have an activity to attract participants, perhaps a spa day or something like that. Proposed program changes include allowing Little Miss Holstein “designees” to participate for multiple years rather than limiting them to one year. Budget for 2012-13 is $675 in excess of Revenue. Futurity Committee Report Chairman: Wendy Erbsen The Futurity Show takes place at the State Championship Show, deadlines are July 1 for two-year-old and five-year-old renewal and November 1 is the deadline for new futurity animals and renewal of second year. The Committee would like to promote the new opportunity to be published in the Herald, with payment due May 1st. The Committee discussed making up for lack of payment of 5% to animals in the ring for 5-year-old class in 2011. The Committee asked that the purse be rolled into the next show with a new rule change – “If less than 20 animals are shown, the portion of the unclaimed purse shall be applied to the future five-year futurity for the same animals nominated.” Budget for 2012-13 is to breakeven. Membership Committee Report Chairman: Brian Olbrich Membership went down slightly from 2010 to 2011. The committee recommends mailing membership forms by March 1st, anticipates Page 8

dues arriving in April, with the $5 late fee for any dues paid after June 1st. The mailing list needs to be reviewed by the officers of each club to narrow it down a little to save on postage. The committee recommends reformatting the membership form to make it easier for households to fill out one sheet rather than multiple pages for family members. The committee also suggests adding a box for people to check if they would like their membership form emailed to them in the future, rather than mailed. Budget for 2012-13 is $17,000 profit. Planning and Evaluation Committee Report Chairman: Gary Janssen Each Committee Chairman gave a brief description of their committee activities. Boyd Schaufelberger joined the group and mentioned keeping our members up-to-date about FDA testing of milk. Gary asked for a show of hands of interest in moving the state sale to the spring and the consensus was that there is definitely interest. Budget for 2012-13 is zero. PDCA Calf Sale Committee Report Chairman: Marc Hilgendorf & Gene McCoy The 2012 PDCA Calf Sale will be held April 14th at the Round Barn in Champaign. Entries are due by February 1st for advertising. They are looking for 25-30 suggested showaged Holstein calves. They need the birthdate of the calf and registration for dam and sire. The Selection Committee will be Steve Irwin, Jerry Smith, Bob Miller, Gary Janssen, Kevin Lyons, Marc Hilgendorf and Jason Oertel. Creighton Barker will be the Auctioneer. Larry Kleiner will read Pedigrees. Illini Dairy Club will do preparation. The Committee discussed the possibility of offering picks/flushes and no decision was made. Budget for 2012-13 is to breakeven. Promotions Committee Report Chairman: Carrie Pollard; Report given by John Mitchell The Promotions Committee will continue to distribute Heralds at National Convention and World Dairy Expo, with a special Midwest booth this upcoming year next to Wisconsin at World Dairy Expo. There were four entries last year in the Cow of the Year Contest and the winner was Ms. Price Star Meyer owned by the Koehn Family of Peotone. The Display Board was displayed at State Sale, State Convention, State Show and State Picnic and the same is planned for this year. Budget for 2012-13 is $1,000 in expenses. Publications Committee Report Publications Chairman: Stephanie Stout;

Report given by Julie Drendel Editor Julie Drendel distributed a handout detailing the financial summary of the Herald as an enterprise. The summary showed this year the Herald lost a little over $800 but there is still one more issue (the spring Midwest issue) during the fiscal year and it usually makes a profit. The Committee recommends the June Herald be a “Midwest issue” and the December Herald be replaced with one or two newsletters (an 8-16 page newsletter after Convention and a 4-8 page following the committee meetings). Julie Drendel will work on a budget analysis to see if the newsletter option will save us any money. Budget for 2012-13 is to breakeven. The Board discussed the publications and it was moved by Joe Engel to give the Executive Board authority to participate in a Midwest Issue if the other states agree to participate too. The motion was approved by the group. Discussion about the winter issue of the Herald versus a newsletter was tabled by Mike Netemeyer until the June Board meeting, motion to table was seconded by Joe Engel. Website Committee Report Website Chairman: Stephanie Aves The Committee suggests retaining Holstein World as the host of the website, but other options will be explored/considered for webmaster. The Committee discussed soliciting sponsors/advertising on the website. Julie Drendel brought up the idea of enhancing the website with feature sections like a “Breeder Profile”. Budget for 2012-13 is to breakeven. National Convention Chairmen Chairman: Ron Schaufelberger; co-chair: Dale Drendel This was a brain-storming meeting of the National Convention Committee Chairmen. The convention will be held June 29-July 3, 2015. They discussed pre-convention tours, budget and finance, the Trade Show, the sale site, Host-Day Tours, logo and theme, non-delegate tour, Family Night (maybe at Medieval Times), Junior Program (maybe Marla Behrends), Fundraising (maybe sponsors for the gators to run around the grounds and a calendar). Tour sites recommended were Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Mint, and the Field Museum. Potential Sponsors named were Alflex, Monsanto, Midwest, DMI, Select Sires, ABS, Cargill, ADM and First Farm Credit. Potential Banquet speakers recommended were Max Armstrong and Orion Samuelson. Emcee nominated was Mike Hutjens. State Sale Committee Report Chairman: John Erbsen The Committee had a positive discussion about the possibility of moving the State Sale from the fall to the spring. This would Spring 2012


involve having two sales during one year and also talking to Clinton County and Northwest Spring Sizzler about the conflict with their sales every other year. The committee asks the Board to discuss and vote on this issue. The 2012 State Sale is scheduled for northern Illinois, either Freeport or Belvidere, on October 27th. The Committee recommends reducing expenses by cutting the advertising in Cattle Connection. Four hundred and fifty catalogs should be printed for the sale. For Sale Commissions, the recommendation to the Board is that the Sale Chairman be paid 1% of sale gross; co-chairman receive 3% of the consignments they secure (with a $500 minimum) and co-co-chairman receive 3% of the consignments they secure (with no minimum guarantee). Ringmen compensation should be 3% commission on animals they secure the final bid on, with a minimum of $500. The Chairman has discretion to choose how much to pay the Auctioneer and Pedigree reader. The Committee recommends the State Sale cease holding money for choice lots in escrow. Projected profit for the State Sale(s) during 2012-13 is $5,000. The Board of Directors discussed sale commissions and compensation. Boyd Schaufelberger moved to approve the

Illinois Holstein Herald

compensation package recommendations and the motion was approved by the group. Dale Drendel moved to authorize Sale Chairman John Erbsen to talk to the Clinton County Classic and the Spring Sizzler to get their opinions on the Holstein Association moving the State Sale to the spring. The motion was seconded by Boyd Schaufelberger and approved by the group. Gary Janssen moved that we cease holding the down payment for Choice Lots in escrow and that the consignor be given their 10% immediately following the sale. The motion was seconded by Bruce Clanton and approved by the Board. State Show Report Chairman: Brian Wesemann; Co-Chairman: Nate Janssen The dates we hope to hold the 2012 State Show will be July 18-July 20, with animals arriving on July 17. The Interstate Center/ McLean County Fairgrounds have issues with having us on those dates with time to clean up afterward, so they recommend we find another location. The increasing cost there every year has also encouraged us to search for new locations. New locations were discussed, including Pontiac, Gordyville, State Fairgrounds, and Lincoln. Going back to Lincoln seems the most feasible and attractive, and the cost was preliminarily discussed as

$3000 for site rental and clean-up. A motion was made by the committee to contact the fairgrounds in Lincoln to get a formal contract drawn up for 3 years at their facility. Committee Chairmen will meet with the facility to discuss donating fans to improve ventilation, the PA system, Announcer Stand, whether the bark will be removed prior to cattle arrival and potential lunch stand/wagon on-site. The Chairmen will contact Chris Lahmers about judging the Open Show, with the next choice being Chris Hill and then Robert Yeoman. The Committee discussed the online checkin for the show and Committee members asked that online check-in paperwork be printed for volunteers to use during on-site check-in. The Chairmen need to make sure Julie Drendel is willing to help design and print the catalog again for 2012. Committee members asked whether entry fees could be lowered if the cost of the show site decreases and that will be discussed in future years. The Committee Chairmen ask for members’ help in soliciting donations from their local suppliers they do business with and they can follow-up after the initial request is made if you let them know who to talk to. Budget for 2012-2013 is breakeven. Boyd Schaufelberger moved to give the Show Chairmen authority to discuss installing fans

at the Lincoln fairgrounds with the grounds managers and report back to the President who will present the options to the Board at the June meeting. The motion was seconded by Dale Drendel and approved by the Board. Youth Committee Report Chairman: Glen Meier The Spring Thing will be at The Chateau in Bloomington on March 3rd and 4th. The Youth will travel to the National Convention in Springfield, MO, Illinois Championship Junior Show, Illinois State Fair Junior Show and the Fall Annual Meeting. The group raised $1,900 from silent/live auction at state convention and $2,973.50 from calf donated by Select Sires at State Sale. In the future, the Committee requests commission not be taken out of any sale animals donated to the Illinois Juniors. Applications for the Allen Tucker Memorial Scholarship are due February 20th. The Committee discussed National Convention costs from the past. Ticket and hotel prices for the 2012 convention have not been released yet. The folding display contest will be split into two categories this year – Scientific and Promotions. DJM and YDJM books will be streamlined for 2013 to encourage increased participation. A judge has been identified for

WISCONSIN MADISON Dairy Science Student Profile Name: Laura Elliott Hometown: Marshall, WI High School: Marshall Senior High School Class Size: 80 Farm: Partee Holsteins & Jerseys Major: Dairy Science & Life Sciences Communication Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? UW-Madison was an easy choice for me; it is a world-class university in my backyard. Madison provided a large city atmosphere with Big Ten sports, yet still had a small community on the agriculture campus. What has been your most memorable college experience? Being involved in several activities on campus have been invaluable experiences in my college career. Through Badger Dairy Club, Association of Women in Agriculture, National Agri-Marketing Association and the Collegiate Dairy judging team I have been given the opportunity to travel all over the United States and visit Canada. The memories through these organizations and connections I have made are those that I will never forget. What has been your favorite course? My favorite Dairy Science course has been Dairy Herd Management - it is a great combination of a lot of important topics on a dairy farm in a real world setting. My all time favorite course has been my Campaign Strategy course through the Life Sciences Communication department. This course has taught me many facets of the business world by developing a product campaign strategy. What are your future career goals? Upon graduation I have accepted a position with Dow Agro-Sciences where I will be on their sales staff. I also plan to continue to stay active within the dairy industry with Registered Holsteins and dairy promotion.

Introducing...

Gary’s Dairy

Welcome to Gar y's Dair y home to Good-Time Holsteins! This operation all started with a big dream that was fueled by helping on my grandparents farm, and doing relief milking for neighbors on weekends and in the summer. During 1995-96 I attended the short-course/school for beginning dair y far mers at UW -Madison, with an emphasis in grass based dairying. In July of 1996, with the help of my parents, I rented a barn and milked 20 cows and 25 heifers with 4 buckets and a step-saver. In Mar ch of 1998 I had the opportunity to buy 65 acres of mostly clear land. In the meantime the herd grew to 35 milking with 40 head of young stock. In October of 1998 the opportunity arose to buy 13 acres and a 60 stall barn with pipeline; it was an oppor tunity I could not pass up. About this same time my Dad sold his beef herd which opened up a 50x150 foot loafing barn for young stock and dry cows. In the fall of 1999 I r emodeled the bar n to put in new tie stalls and comfor t mats. Due to a need to milk faster and the willingness to push cow numbers, in the summer I built a swing 10 milking parlor onto the east side of the barn. In November of 2007 I married. Though I didn’t know it at the time, I later learned that the farm had now come back into the family since, my wife Holly’s great-great grandparents were actually the first people to farm this patch of land and built the original section of the barn. In the summer of 2008 my dad built a 40x80 foot cover-all shed for hay and young stock which is the same time he started buying some higher end cattle to “play” with. These animals are also milked at Gary's Dairy. In December of 2009 another 80 acres of land was purchased to bring the farm to its current land size of 160 acres. Due to the ever growing herd and storage shortage, I built a 40x144 foot commodity shed in the spring of 2011. The shed is used for dry hay, machinery, and calves up to 6 months of age. The herd has constantly been in a growing and changing state. When I first started it was only a grade herd, with only a few Registered Holsteins and with year-round calving. As time went on the whole herd became registered with most being identified grades (now up to 93% r egistered) and a few mor e r egistered animals purchased. With the will to milk more cows in the summer ver y few calves ar e bor n in the winter. In the summer cows utilize pasture as much as possible and are supplemented with round bales. Cows calve in their own pasture and calves stay on their own pastur e for 3 months when they ar e weaned then moved the sheds. Cows have been bred with the thought in mind that there is no such thing as a cow too big or too fertile. One line that stands out started with an old brood cow, Nest-Bros Odyssey Rihanna, who has many animals tracing back to her with an exceptional cow going as my first excellent cow – Good-Time Zander Rihanna. W ith continued breeding hopefully we can achieve more great cows like this.

Three of these four cows are backed by homebred EX dams with the fourth having a VG-87 dam. If you are looking for an honest foundation cow, give us a call. Thank you to all the Wisconsin Holstein members that have supported and advised Corey over the past eight years in the Wisconsin Holstein board of directors.

She focused on the English and Hunt Seat disciplines. Lori attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and majored in Animal Sciences. She was involved in the Block and Bridle club, but it is here that she was also first exposed to dairy. She joined the Illini Dairy Club and through a Spring Break trip, met her future husband, Brian Lyons. While at U of I, Lori participated on the Dairy Judging team and was actively involved in the Illini Dairy Club. After college, she and Brian were married and moved to Mt. Carroll, Ill., where Lori began working for a bank. Throughout the years, her duties expanded taking her into the accounting world. Lori first started working with the Illinois Holstein Association 20 years ago. Lori was the Secretary-Treasurer for many years and was instrumental in the runnings of the Association. Lori had many duties that were “behind the scenes” but events would not have happened without her. The Illinois Holstein Championship Show always seemed to go off without a hitch because of Lori’s organization and execution. She was responsible for ordering all of the ribbons and awards, helped with the cataloging of entries, and made sure to keep the ringmen in line! Several years ago, Lori also became the Chair of the Dutchess contest. Through her

Throughout the rest of the year, Lori was responsible for meeting notices, membership mailings, and general tasks for the Association. Many of her duties ensured that the Association was able to run smoothly and efficiently. Brian and Lori have four children. Erin lives in Texas and is a Business Manager for Lallemand Nutrition who is a major supplier of forage and animal nutrition products.

All four have represented the Illinois Juniors at various National Holstein Conventions and exhibited at the local and state level. As their children were involved in the Junior Holstein Association, Lori made sure to support them as well as many of the other juniors. She attended multiple Annual Meetings and Spring Thing events. Today, Lori is a Supervisor at the Rockford Office of Sikich LLP. She is also very involved in the Rockford-area Illini Club. She still makes time to attend games in Champaign. Years CTPI
