DUTCHESS DOMAIN As my time as the Illinois Holstein Dutchess comes to an end, I would like to say what a great experience it has been. I sincerely encourage any girls that are thinking about competing this summer to do it! The competition will be held at the State Show in Lincoln on July 16th. It consists of a personal interview with judges as well as a speech and introductory story. If anyone has questions about the competition I encourage you to contact me. During my time as Dutchess I was able to attend several shows including the State Fair where I spoke with breeders and fairgoers alike. I had many other opportunities to speak with people which included my college speech class where it was pretty much a guarantee that my speeches would involve dairy. It was nice to be able to be able to speak with a different demographic of consumers. I also had the opportunity to speak with children about the goodness of dairy at my local FFA petting zoo and a daycare as well as during a milking demonstration at my county fair. Page 6

Brian Olbrich

In addition, I spoke with consumers at my Farm Bureau’s TouchA-Tractor event, which gave people a glimpse at modern farming. This was such a great experience, as many of the people I spoke with were genuinely curious about dairy and where their food comes from as a whole. I also attended Spring Thing this February, it was a fun weekend filled with competition. I would like to thank Emily Irwin, Bailey Hart and Morgan Olbrich for coordinating the weekend. I would also like to give a special thank you to Julie Ashton, Dave Fischer, Aaron Heinzmann, Mike Hutjens and Rod

IRWIN RECEIVES TUCKER SCHOLARSHIP

Emily Irwin of Belvidere, Ill., is the 2014 recipient of the Allen Tucker Memorial Scholarship. This $1,000 scholarship was established in memory of the late Allen E. Tucker of Brighton, Ill., who was a highly respected and successful breeder of Registered Holstein dairy cattle. More importantly, his legacy was built on his dedication to the development of young people. Mr. Tucker was known for his wit, intelligence, and integrity. He was also known for his willingness to share the knowledge he gained over a lifetime to help guide young people involved with registered Holsteins and the dairy industry. The Allen Tucker Memorial Scholarship is presented annually to an Illinois Jr. Holstein member who exemplifies the character and leadership displayed by Mr. Tucker and who is planning to pursue a career in the dairy industry. Emily recently graduated from Belvidere High School where she was a member of the National

Honors Society, very active member of FFA and served as FFA vice-president. She will be attending Kaskaskia College at Centralia, Ill., this fall to pursue her two-year degree before transferring to a four year university to gain a B.S. Degree in Animal Science/Dairy Science. Emily plans to move into a career involved with the production and promotion side of the dairy industry. While growing up on her family dairy farm, Emily has been very involved with registered Holsteins and provided leadership to many youth organizations. She was a member of the 2013 IL 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl team competing at the national contest where she was 2nd high individual and her team placed third out of nineteen state teams. In addition, Emily attended 2013 National 4-H Congress, 2012 National 4-H Dairy Conference, and received the 2011 IL 4-H/ FFA Superior Young Dairy Producer Award scholarship.

ILLINOIS JUNIOR JOURNEYS Junior Spring Thing The Illinois Junior Holstein Association held its annual spring meeting on March 2, 2014 at The Chateau Hotel in Bloomington, Ill. President Morgan Bollech called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone to the meeting. The treasurer’s report was handed out by Treasurer Bailey Hart, Rosalee Zehr moved to approve the treasurer’s report, Morgan Olbrich seconded the motion, and the motion passed. The secretary’s report was handed out by Secretary Emily Irwin, Ryan Sheehan moved to approve the secretary’s report, Meredith Ziller seconded the motion, and the motion passed. Old Business I n old business, discussion began about the State Show rules that had been tabled to this meeting from the July meeting. A letter regarding the current rules and possible changes from Paula Bovre was read. The first issue discussed with state show rules was that once a showmanship participant wins their age division they must move up to the next age division regardless of their age, and once they win senior showmanship they can no longer participate in showmanship. Brianna Sheehan moved to have a showmanship class for those that have won all three showmanship divisions and Ryan Sheehan seconded the motion. Discussion about what effects this would have included that it would lengthen the show and it would give the participants more experience and they could get feedback on how to improve from the judge. The vote was taken and the motion passed. It was then discussed that to reduce the length of the show with the added time for showman of showman, boys and girls could be shown together and the judge would pick the top boy and girl. Allison Aves moved to show showmanship classes boys and girls together, Ryan Sheehan seconded the motion, and the motion passed.

Page 10

It was brought up that there needed clarification on how many individuals would be recognized for showmanship, and it was decided that the top 3 boys and top 3 girls in each age division would be recognized but only the top 1 boy and top 1 girl from each division would move on to the showman of showman contest. Discussion then turned to the showmanship ownership rule, which stated that you must own the animal you use for showmanship but you can use another juniors animal if yours is sick or injured. The group was very divided on this issue. Some members felt that this rule excludes junior members who don’t bring their animals to state show for various reasons but would like to participate to get more experience showing. Other members felt that showmanship should be about the work you do to prepare your animals for showing in addition to your work in the show ring, and a change to the rule allowing a junior to show another juniors animal would add to the check in process. Megan Opperman moved that a junior member can show any other juniors animal if they don’t have an animal there, Ryan Sheehan seconded the motion, and in a close vote the motion passed. The next state show rule that was discussed was the rule that juniors have to show each animal at their district show in order to show them at the state show with 1 substitution. Brianna Sheehan moved to change our rule to be the same as the seniors which is you only have to show 1 animal at district show to show at state show, and Meredith Ziller seconded the motion. After further discussion we decided it would be best to form a committee to decide, committee members are Lila Sloan, Brianna Sheehan, Dylan Reed, Morgan Olbrich, Connor Erbsen, Bailey Hart, and Ellie Lenkaitis. Brianna Sheehan moved to table the discussion to the next meeting and the committee should suggest what to do, Ryan Sheehan seconded the motion, motion passed.

New Business In new business, awards from Spring Thing were given out. See the following page for all award winners! Following the awards, fundraising was discussed. We decided to do the railbird judging contest at state show, and there were several other ideas discussed. Brianna Sheehan volunteered to chair the railbird judging contest and Lila Sloan volunteered to help. Other fundraising ideas that were discussed were an alumni dairy bowl or a celebrity showmanship, and a committee of Emily Irwin and Megan Opperman was formed to work on this. We discussed having a workers auction again, but it was decided that there wasn’t a very good place to do it this year so we won’t have it this year. The next item of discussion was state show. It was discussed that we wouldn’t need an extra showmanship judge since boys and girls will show together. Show chairman Anna Folgate took names of judges the members would like which included Gerrit Debruin, Chris McCollough, and Steve Hendress, and asked for ideas for prizes which included belt buckle, pullover, cash prize, bucket of supplies, feed tub, halters, duffel bags, chairs, and show harnesses. Brianna Sheehan moved to leave the prize selection up to Anna Folgate as Vice President, Morgan Olbrich seconded the motion, motion passed. The next thing to be discussed was Spring Thing 2015. Ryan Sheehan volunteered to be the chair; and Meredith Ziller, Brianna Sheehan, and Summer 2014

National Convention 2014 was then discussed, as reporter Morgan Wendling will be making the paper and digital scrapbook for National Convention so members should send their pictures to her. Brianna Sheehan volunteered to make the state banner for national convention. Melissa Irwin and Becky Meier then talked about National Convention for 2015 which will be held in Illinois. They mentioned ideas for promotional things to give out at this years’ convention to promote convention for next year and members gave them additional ideas. It was decided to leave the decision of what to give out to the kids going to national convention this year. They also talked about what we could offer for a junior tour option for 2015 convention, and members ranked options including Shedd Aquarium, Fun Zone, Museum of Science and Industry, and many others. It was discussed that the juniors should make a fun video

of some sort to show at the 2014 convention banquet to promote the 2015 convention to juniors. The committee to help Melissa and Becky with that is Riley Zettle, Jared Dickman, Connor Erbsen, Ryan Sheehan, Jordon Oellerich, Brianna Sheehan, Allison Aves, Emily Irwin, and Bailey Hart. Next we talked about ways to get donors for junior exclusive activities. It was mentioned that if we told possible sponsors that we donated an amount of money they would be more likely to donate to us or even match our donation. Kate Carlson moved to donate $2,500 for National Convention junior activities, Ryan Sheehan seconded, and the motion passed. Morgan Olbrich moved to adjourn the meeting and Connor Erbsen seconded the motion. Meeting was adjourned. State Show Committee Meeting The State Show Committee meeting was

held on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 3:30 pm at the Boone County extension office.

Bailey Hart moved to keep the rule the same, Morgan Olbrich seconded the motion, motion passed. Next, there was discussion about the showmanship ownership rule that was brought up at the Spring Thing meeting.

KYLE MITCHELL MEMORIAL AWARD

At this year’s Annual Spring Thing meeting, the fifth Kyle Mitchell Memorial Award was presented to Dylan Reed, Vandalia, Ill., in memory of late Junor member, Kyle Mitchell of Winnebago. Below are excerpts of the presentation given in its inaugural year, prepared by Junior Advisor, Melissa Irwin. “It is both a pleasure and a challenge for me to introduce an award being offered to IJHA members. [In 2008] our association has lost one of its favorite members. In response to that the juniors at the fall meeting decided to start a new award in memory of Kyle Mitchell. At the December committee meetings this was discussed further and it was decided that a traveling plaque would be awarded as well as something for the recipient to keep. A special thanks goes out to Becky Meier, Lorilee Schultz, Brian Olbrich, and Kathy Miller for assisting me with the development of the

award and the criteria by which the nominees would be judged and for nominating five well rounded young people for the award. The committee who put the criteria together for this award really tried to focus on Kyle and the attributes that made him an outstanding member of the junior Holstein organization. *Encompasses complete junior career *Fully participates in activities *Mentors younger members Kyle's mom, Jan, mentioned to me that Kyle didn't care who you were but as long as you played his game whether it be soccer, band or dairy bowl, he accepted you. How true that was. He always welcomed new members into dairy bowl and made them feel a part of the group. One of the biggest focuses of the committee was on Kyle's positive attitude. Everyone who knew him knew he had a very positive outlook on life. He used that positive attitude to be a good leader. Although he didn't hold any state junior office he was involved in many activities like Spring Thing, Conventions, showing, and fundraising. Kyle indeed had many attributes which showed his genuine character. Indeed he was a well rounded individual. But, one thing we all know for sure was the Kyle could sure be a character. He had a way of making people laugh and helping contestants to relax when the competition got tough. We are all better for having known Kyle and he will be missed.”

Bob & Kaye Miller’s 60 th Anniversary Party Sunday, October 12, 3-10 P.M. Turner Hall – Monroe, Wis. RSVP 815-81-7282 / Kthrynlyn@gmail.com Details will be on the Mil-R-Mor Facebook Page

Bob & Kaye met while attending a church lawn social in Iron Hill, Quebec, in the summer of 1949. Bob’s attention was caught by Kaye’s shapely figure and her long, dark hair. He was also impressed to see she could throw and bat a softball farther than any girl he’d ever seen. Kaye thought Bob was pretty cute, too! She liked his mischievous smile and curly hair. They attended Knowlton High School together where they became friends and then high school sweetheats. Bob & Kaye loved to dance and many a weekend would find them kicking up their heels at the local dance halls. They were married October 12, 1954, in Cowansville, Que. Less than two years later with only a couple hundred dollars in their pockets, one baby on the hip and another on the way, they decided to seek their fortunes in the great state of Illinois. They had heard this was where the heart of opportunity with registered Holsteins was…and the rest, as they say, is history! The Illinois Holstein family has always played a key role in the lives of Bob & Kaye and all of us here at Mil-R-Mor. We hope to see you this fall to help celebrate Bob & Kaye’s 60th Anniversary. Festivities will include an afternoon open house followed by dinner and dancing, or please send your regards if unable to attend.

Happy 60 th Anniversary Mom & Dad! Wendy, Craig, Madeline, Crystal & Kathy Page 12

FROM THE NATIONAL BOARD

The Holstein Association USA board of directors held its spring meeting in late March in Brattleboro, Vt. A number of important conversations and decisions took place and we’ll take a few moments to share some of the highlights. Financially speaking, the Holstein Association is on solid footing. The Audit Committee met the entire day prior to the Association’s twoday board meeting in Hartford, Conn. Audit Committee Chair Schaufelberger gave full report the following day at the board meeting. In addition to having a solid performance for the fiscal year, the Holstein Association’s Reserve Fund had a solid year as well. At year’s end, the Reserve Fund stood at $26.7 million. This does not include assets of Holstein Foundation of $6 million. In 2013, the Holstein Association’s Reserve Fund had a return of 15% while the Foundation (invested somewhat differently) yielded 12.5%. The concept of the Association’s Reserve Fund dates back to 1903. At the time, the Association’s directors and management set aside $20,000 over a three-year horizon to protect itself against financial downturns. Since that time, the Reserve Fund has grown a great deal. It is the stated goal to have one year’s operating expense set aside to shield itself against difficult financial conditions. Applying a little match, there the Association is $8.1 above its Reserve ($26.7 million minus $18.6 million financial production). That said, the Audit Committee recommended to the board of directors that the Association allocate up to 5 percent annually from the Reserve Fund be designated toward the betterment of the Holstein Association, its members and the Holstein cow. At least half of that 5 percent should target breed improvement and research, with the remainder targeted on capital

improvements and other projects deemed necessary by the Holstein Association USA board of directors and staff. The board also took action to clarify the developments among Red Holsteins. In addition to the dominant black coat color allele and it recessive red carrier counterpart; there are two other alleles that effect coat color on the chromosome 18. There is the Black/ Red gene and the “wild-type red” allele. Both need to either be paired with each other or the recessive red carrier allele to be expressed in a Holstein. Up until now, “wild-type red” where categorized as Black/Red. After board action, the Association will begin taking action to correctly code these animals. Also new to the red front is the Dominant Red gene. Thanks to research at the University of California-Davis, we know this condition is found on Chromosome 3. As its name implies, an animal receiving a single copy of the dominant red allele from one parent will be red. This gene truly warrants being called Dominant Red because the dominant red allele will “dominate” all other coat color alleles. If an animal has even one copy of the Dominant Red allele, it will be red, even if the traditional gene is coding for black hair. Simply said, Dominant Red trumps all other forms of red color.

To recap order of inheritance for Red and White Holsteins: • DR = Dominant Red • Recessive Red modes of action: • ED = Black and White gene • EBR = Black-Red gene • E+ = “Wild-type” red • e = carrier of recessive red To learn more, go to: www.vgl.ucdavis.edu/ services/HolsteinCoatColor.php In other business, the Type Committee recommended that classification staff look into the possibility of coding secondary traits. The priority order included: crampiness, foot warts, rear teats too small and/or too far back, spread toes, recessed anus, udder quality, winged shoulders and high pins. The Genetic Advancement Committee held it’s meeting during the National Genetics Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. At that meeting, they discussed potential updates to the TPI formula. The board approved moving forward with an analysis of potential changes to the formula. Also at the meeting, Dr. Ben Dorshorst gave an in-depth discussion on the inheritance of polled genetics and how the frequencies of the gene could be increased within the breed. Also comparisons of genetic merit between polled and non-polled Holsteins was discussed by Dorshorst and the board. It is our pleasure to represent you on the national Holstein board. If you have questions or concerns, we’d appreciate hearing from you. We look forward to seeing you in Iowa this June.

HOLSTEIN ASSOCIATION USA SHOW RING POLICY Showing cattle is an important part of the promoting, merchandising and breeding Registered HolsteinSM cattle for breeders and Holstein Association USA, Inc. to stimulate and sustain interest in breeding Registered HolsteinSM cattle. For the full list of Holstein Association USA Show RIng Policies, please visit www.holsteinusa.com. ENFORCEMENT OF HOLSTEIN SHOW RING POLICY Though the position on setting teats has been modified, it is the position of the Board of Directors that the practice should not be condoned and will be treated with slight to serious discrimination by the judge and show management. It is the responsibility of Holstein show judges at all levels of shows to take appropriate action if any teats are set or in any way manipulated to an unnatural position. While all milking animals must be subject to examination, the judge is instructed to closely examine the top five animals, not only for set teats, but for any other form of tampering requiring discrimination or disqualification. GENERAL RULES The Holstein Show Committee and the Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors reserve the final and absolute right to interpret the rules and regulations of the Shows and will settle and determine all matters, questions, or differences in regard thereto or otherwise arising out of, or in connection with the Shows. In the event a question arises concerning the animal’s age, the Show Committee Chairperson may request that an individual registration certificate be checked at ringside. ILLINOIS HOLSTEIN SHOW RING POLICY The following practices or procedures are unacceptable in the showing of registered dairy cattle: i. Criticizing or interfering with the judge, show management, other exhibitors, or other conduct detrimental to the breed or show; ii. Misrepresenting the age or ownership of an animal or the number of calvings and/or stage of lactation; iii. Filling an animal’s rumen unnaturally with liquid (tubing); iv. Balancing the udder by any means other than leaving naturally produced milk in any or all quarters; v. Treating the udder internally with an irritant, counterirritant, or any other substance to temporarily improve conformation; vi. Overfilling or over bagging of udders; vii. Treating the udder externally with an irritant, counterirritant, or any other substance to temporarily improve conformation (allowable practices/ substances include sealing and setting teats, but not shrinking or shortening teats); viii. Roping udders and the use of objects to physically improve definition of the suspensory center ligament; ix. Administering epidural anesthesia (blocking tails) and/or applying any irritant either externally or internally to the perineal (rectum and vagina) area; x. Inserting foreign material/articles under the skin, into the topline or on the feet (administration of acceptable medications is permitted); xi. Performing surgery of any kind to change the natural contour of appearance of the animal’s body, hide, or hair. Not included is the removal of warts, teats, horns, clipping and dressing of hair and trimming of hooves; xii. Draining of fluid from hocks unless authorized by a veterinarian at the show. xiii. Excessive manipulation of hair and/or the use of any hair not naturally attached to the animal or the use of any substance or material which is intended to resemble or intimate hair; xiv. Mistreatment of animals; xv. Any un-sportsmanship like conduct during the event.

MONITORING PROCEDURES The Ethics Committee, as defined below, shall have the authority to inspect all animals to determine if violations of Illinois Holstein Association Show Ring Policy have occurred. To help in this regard, the Ethics Committee has the authority to perform and review results of the following: i. An ultrasound examination of the udder of selected animals immediately upon completion of respective milking class competition. It shall be the exhibitor’s responsibility to deliver the selected cow to the designated testing area. Within a reasonable time following said testing, the ultrasound official shall submit his/her report to the Illinois Holstein Association. ii. A milk out of any individual cow and/or iii. The collection and testing of any of the animal’s body fluids and/or iv. The use of any other technology that may be useful in determining if a violation in any animal based on placement, random selection, or suspect characteristics. The Ethics Committee or Show Chairman may, at any time, require the delivery to them of any hair samples or hypodermic syringe, needle or other device, swabs, cloths, or other material, or samples or any medicine, preparation, or substance, whether in liquid or other form, in the possession or control of exhibitor, fitters, agents, or person acting on behalf of exhibitor for analysis. ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES i. The Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors shall appoint an Ethics Committee to monitor

violations at all state sponsored shows. The Ethics Committee shall consist of an anonymous team of at least three members. ii. Complaints of alleged violations must be presented in written and signed form to the Show Chairman of respective show no later than the final day of the respective show, except ultrasound results as noted as above. iii. If it is suspected that a violation will occur if an animal is shown the Show Chairman will inform the exhibitor that the showing of that animal may result in a violation of the Illinois Holstein Association Show Ring Policy. If the exhibitor decides not to show that animal, no violation will have occurred. iv. All complaints of alleged violations (as is designated in Enforcement Procedures point #2) received by the Show Chairman must be presented in written and signed form to the IHA for review of the Ethics Committee within five (5) days of receiving that notice of alleged violations, with the Ethics Committee to make a decision on the violations within ten (10) days. v. The Illinois Holstein Association President will notify the accused exhibitor immediately of the Ethics Committee decision that a violation has occurred and all the supportive evidence will be shared with the exhibitor. Within thirty (30) days the Illinois Holstein Association Show Committee shall review the findings from the Ethics Committee and make a recommendation to the Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors of the disciplinary action. The exhibitor will be able to participate in the Show Committee meeting. The Illinois Holstein Association

Board of Directors shall meet on the same day to review that findings of the Ethics Committee, recommendations from the Show Committee and hear any presentations the exhibitor wishes to present. vi. The accused exhibitor must notify the Illinois Holstein Association within seven (7) days of receiving the violation notice of their intent to participate in the Show Committee meeting and/or the Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors meeting, which is set for reviewing the evidence of the alleged violation(s) and the disciplinary action to be taken. vii. If the alleged violator is found in violation of the Illinois Holstein Association Show Ring Policy, the Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors, at its discretion may pass onto the violator(s) its costs associated with violations, enforcement and review of violation(s). Cost associated with the review and/or appeals process must be paid in full; if this assessment is not paid in full the violator(s) will not be in “good standing” with the Illinois Holstein Association and therefore be denied any and all membership benefits of the association (voting, showing, etc.). viii. Illinois Holstein Association Board of Directors and/ or the Show Committee may consider previous violations by an exhibitor in their decision of disciplinary action. ix. During this entire process the Directors of the Illinois Holstein Association Board, the Ethics Committee, the Show Committee, and members will not be obligated to maintain confidentiality.

IN MEMORIAM Lowell I. Keim Lowell I. Keim was a loving, caring and hardworking man who appreciated the little things. Lowell died at the age of 86, on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at Rockford Memorial Hospital, Rockford, Ill. Memorials may be directed to the Illinois 4-H Foundation, the Brown Swiss Historical Society or the Mt. Carroll Methodist Church in Lowell’s memory. Lowell was born on January 22, 1928, the son of Edwin and Garnet (McGinty) Keim in rural Salem Township. He attended Mt. Carroll High School and graduated with the Class of 1946. He proudly served his country for two years in the United States Navy aboard the U.S.S. Navasota. Lowell married Joyce Wise on September 4, 1949, at the Mt. Carroll United Methodist Church. Joyce died on October 10, 2009 at her home in Mt. Carroll. Lowell was a 4th generation Salem Township

Page 20

farmer. Together, Lowell and Joyce bred purebred Brown Swiss Cattle for forty years on the family farm, which was purchased in 1961. Lowell was a sports enthusiast and was a member of a successful bowling team and the Mt. Carroll Merchant’s Softball Team. After his retirement, Lowell played golf several days a week with his friends. Lowell had a significant influence in helping his two sons develop their businesses. Most of all, Lowell loved spending time with his family and friends, sharing stories and anecdotes from his past. Lowell also had a wonderful sense of humor and played several practical jokes over the years. Lowell was a longtime member of the Mt. Carroll Methodist Church. He was also a member of the Masonic Lodge, Commandery and Consistory and was a past Master of the Cyrus Lodge #188 in Mt. Carroll. Lowell was active in the Canton, State and American Brown Swiss Cattle Breeder Association and

was past president of the Illinois Brown Swiss Association. Lowell was also involved in his community, serving on the Chadwick School Board, as a Fire Department Trustee and as a member of the Lions Club. Lowell is survived by his two sons, Chris (Ann) Keim of Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin, and Curt (Jo Ellen) Keim of New Berlin, Illinois; four grandchildren, Sarah (Mark Klebanoff) Keim of Worthington, Ohio, Rebecca (Nathan Pruitt) Keim of Slingerlands, New York, Aaron (Nicole) Keim of Hood River, Oregon and Katie (Aaron Williams) Keim of Waverly, Illinois; three great grandchildren, Claire Garnet Pruitt, Elizabeth Anna Pruitt and Greta Louise Klebanoff and one special friend, Jean Guentner. Lowell was preceded in death by his parents, wife, Joyce and two brothers, Herb and Donald Keim. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Lowell Keim.

Welcome to Iowa and Farnear Holsteins!

We look forward to having visitors during the National Convention and invite visitors to stop out anytime during your trip to Iowa. We are located 20 minutes from Dubuque.

We would like to thank our parents, Joe & Virginia, for sharing their passion for Holsteins by forming Farnear Holsteins in 1960. They have inspired multiple generations of our family to enter the Holstein and dairy industries. They have been attending National Conventions for many years where they enjoyed reminiscing with their Holstein friends, touring farms and watched many of their grandchildren participate in National contests. This year they have nine grandchildren participating in National Contests representing Iowa. Good luck to Adam, Bethany, and Josh Simon, Amanda, Alyssa and Andy Dougherty, Regan and Rachel Demmer and Megan Rauen as they represent Iowa in Junior and Senior Quiz Bowl, Dairy Jeopardy, Speech and the Distinguished Junior Member Contest.

has definitely cast her shadow on our herd over the last 8 years, since purchasing her as a 6 year old carrying mixed Durham twins S athawna the Elm-Lawn-G Dispersal in July 2005. We couldn't have asked for a better brood cow to develop a cow family around, when selecting her from Terry and Kathy Goerl’s impressive herd! Strength, depth, width, along with a great udder and a gentle disposition that any dairyman would love to work with, are some of the great attributes that made Shawna so special! The family’s longevity ranks right up there with the best of the breed with 12 multiple E’s and 975,000 lbs. of lifetime milk between Shawna and her two maternal dams. In a world of genetic indexes and genomic values dictating which cows and heifers are to be perceived to be profitable and valuable, Shawna and her family continue to verify their worth with hard-earned numbers: high lifetime production totals and impressive classification scores. She has left us with many daughters sired by some of our favorite bulls, with many daughters and granddaughters yet to calve in, which will assure that Shawna’s shadow of type, components and longevity will be cast on our herd for many years to come!

Baby Bumble is the complete package, a cow that epitomizes our breeding program. Olmar Farms strives to breed every cow to be an EX scoring, high producing cow that is strong enough to last many lactations and pass those desired traits on to their offspring.

A 4th generation Excellent, Baby Bumble had early success in the genomic arena with Planet daughters being sold to Select Sires and on the National Convention Sale in Minnesota. Currently, Baby Bumble’s Numero Uno daughter is a standout in the heifer yard and on paper. She is over 230 TPI points and 213NM$ above parent average. Bumble also has a recently fresh Fever daughter that cut the same as her dam.

Olmar Plnet Baby Bunting VG-86-CAN

Baby Bunting was sold to Ferme Vinbert, in Quebec, in 2010 and has been highly sought after for embryos and offspring. Their website shows daughters that are stamped the same as others from the Baby Bunny cow family.

We are fortunate to have 3 milking daughters from this great young cow including Olmar Beacon Baby Bop ET VG 86 (at 2 yrs) who is making a great 1st record and has a daughter by Numero Uno that is currently being flushed to fill AI and embryo contracts.

National Convention Welcome Planters by Koral Harbaugh When you visit Dubuque this summer, catch a glimpse of the authentic welcome planters greeting you at the entrance of the different locations. The genuine old fashion barn structure has been recreated to form the base of the planter by those found working at the "Barn Board Factory", located in northeast Iowa near Elgin. Owners, Erling & Mary Bilden and Gary & Lisa Schneider, travel around northeast Iowa, recycling old barns. They take someone’s unwanted eyesore and create beautiful treasures that are enjoyed by many. You will notice on the front of the barn is a quilt block which represents the Barn Quilt Trail movement that took place starting in 2004 in Grundy County, Iowa. The purpose of this movement was to attract travelers off the interstates and introduce them to rural Iowa. The results were astounding! Small businesses saw increases and barns were being restored for future generations. Travelers were invited to follow the barn quilt trail and be treated to what Iowa had to offer. For the planters, the quilt pattern was taken from a publication of the "Workbasket Magazine". The whole state quilt block series was completed in May, 1987. The "Iowa Hawkeye Star" pattern represents the state of Iowa. Each of the three large barn quilt blocks are painted with the colors of the three major universities located in Iowa: University of Iowa, Iowa State University and UNI. The "Nearly Wild Shrub Rose" will be sprouting out of the top of the rustic barn planter representing the Iowa state flower. The shrub roses were purchased from Riveland Nursery & Garden Center owned by Larry and Cindy Riveland, Monona, Iowa. The roses are extremely hardy and supplies gorgeous blooms all summer long. The black iron silhouette cow standing beside the barn represents the registered Holstein enthusiasts who are gathering for the special event of the National Holstein Convention. The cows were created by Jeff Westphal of Westphal Iron Works LLC / Iowa Metal Art, located at Casey, Iowa. The "Holstein Cow" is the focus of our gathering. If you look closely enough you will spot the Iowa state bird, Eastern Goldfinch, perching on the welcome planters. Some of the Goldfinches will come inside and greet you at the registration counter. They will be sitting on a smaller planter filled with silks from "Silkin Expressions" owned by Susan Griffin, Postville, Iowa. The Banners were designed by a company called "Envisions" located right here in Dubuque and owned by the Rauen family.

18 - 2014 National Holstein Convention

Iowa Holstein breeders invite you to participate in the Silent Auction that will be conducted throughout the convention. Items included in the auction of the planters will be individually listed: Barns, Iron Cow Silhouettes, Roses and a Small Registration Planter Arrangement. Bidding sheets will be found at the registration desk. These planters represent the grass roots of what makes Iowa grand.

2014 National Holstein Convention - 23


Collin's Fund At the 2008 Iowa Spring Holstein Sale, a heifer was sold by Brian and Koral Harbaugh, Holstein breeders from northeast Iowa. This heifer had belonged to their oldest son, Collin. Collin drowned while on an FFA Canoe Outing in the summer of 2007. The Harbaughs approached the Iowa Junior Holstein Advisers with the idea of selling this calf in Collin's memory. The resulting money would be donated to the Iowa Junior Holstein Association and placed in a savings account to be used for the 2014 National Junior Holstein Convention. After discussing the idea, it was decided to sell the heifer and also allow people to give donations to this fund. The heifer sold for $4,600, an additional $7,065 was given by friends and businesses from Iowa and Wisconsin, and the interest accumulated to $719, for a total of $12,884.21. This donation is being used for this year's National Junior Convention. Besides being an excellent student, Collin was very active in many things including music, sports, 4-H and FFA. Because of Collin's connection with his school's FFA program, the Harbaughs wanted to have Steven Brockhus, the National FFA Central Region Vice President, speak at this year's Junior Awards Luncheon. Steven grew up on his parents' dairy farm in northwest Iowa. At Sibley-Ocheyedan High School, he was active in concert, marching and jazz bands. He was a choir member and performed as a lead in several high school plays and musicals. He was a member of the varsity football, wrestling and track teams. He, also, belonged to groups including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, 4-H and FFA. After graduation from Iowa State, Brockshus hopes to develop agriculture, teach and be involved in missionary work in a third-world country to encourage community development, spur innovation and motivate people in need. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Brian and Koral Harbaugh and their son, Pierce, for this generous gift.

Focused on the Future: Minnesota Holstein Young Adult Committee By: Kelsey Mussman, MHA Intern

Minnesota has often prided itself on the quality of the Junior Holstein Association, offering many educational, fun and social opportunities for youth across the state to be involved with the breed while developing relationships that will last a lifetime. But where do members go once they pass their 21st birthday? For most, college is wrapping up and it’s time to start looking for a job, whether that means returning home to the farm, or entering industry somewhere. Some even pursue employment unrelated to the dairy industry. A couple years ago, the Minnesota Holstein Association realized an opportunity to strengthen the longevity of the association by welcoming young people into the adult association. In order to do this they formed the Young Adult Committee (YAC); a group dedicated to providing social and educational activities to Holstein enthusiasts ages 21 to 40. The group has grown in size and function, hosting events like a bean bag tournament

at the state show, an embryo sale at the adult convention. As we look to the future the group hopes to create some educational opportunities with speakers and trips, traveling to farms around the state and surrounding area, and bringing in industry leaders to the annual convention to speak on a topic relevant to this age group. With money raised at the embryo auction, the YAC will be offering a scholarship to the 2015 All-Breeds convention, including two free banquet tickets and a one-night stay at the convention hotel. To be eligible to win, you must be a MN Holstein member. To win you’ll simply have to submit your name for the drawing. One winner will be chosen a month before convention. Ideas for both social and education activities are always welcome, if you’d like to learn more about the group, or become more involved, please contact committee chair Megan Herberg at meganherberg@ gmail.com or 507-380-1832. Together we can brighten the future of the Minnesota

Holstein Association, and have some fun along the way. Next event will be the bean bag tournament at the MN State Show, Thursday, June 19th in Caledonia, MN.

YAC Member: Staci Sexton

and Whites, and a few Jerseys. I have always loved farming and knew it was what I wanted to do all my life. My parents have been a great help in getting started in farming.

Young Adult Committee Member Profile

Where did you go to school? I went to school at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and majored in Animal Science with an emphasis in Dairy Production. How long have you been farming? What is your current location and set up? I helped on my parents farm throughout high school but started farming with them in September 2011 in Millville, MN. I started as a farm hand and then in December of 2012 I started my own herd. I have increased my herd to 35 milking cows of Holsteins, Red

Our current set up is a double 8 herringbone parlor where we milk 120 cows. My herd and my parents herd are together but we have separate tanks and DHIA. We run our own crops and raise our own feed and youngstock. My favorite part is working with the baby calves. I do custom raising for Hartford Holsteins, raising their embryo calves up to the age of 10 weeks. I have started to get into genomics of cattle and working to better my genetics of my herd.

Why are you a MHA member? The reason I joined MHA is because I wanted to be involved in the Holsteins and meet more people. It is great to hear how others are doing things and what they are working on and MHA helps connect MN Holstein people together. What is a piece of advice you have to offer? A piece of advice: have goals and always work towards them. I always try to make goals for myself and strive towards them. It doesn’t matter the size of the goal or how long it may take to achieve it, it is a great things to have to push yourself forward.

Discounted MHA Membership Opportunity

The Minnesota Holstein Association board of directors passed a motion to offer a discounted rate of membership for individuals who are ages 21 - 40 and have never had a membership with the adult association or have had a membership in the past but have had a lapse in membership for 28 - NATIONAL HOLSTEIN CONVENTION

more than one year. The cost of this discounted membership is $30 plus your per cow fee. To become a member you can visit the Minnesota Holstein website at mnholstein.com and find a membership card under the membership tab to fill out and send in.

Also if you would like to stay up to date on the activities of the Young Adult Committee and the Minnesota Holstein Association please send us your email and we will add you to our enewsletter mailing list.


Minnesota Brood Cow Profile: Sonnek Damion Charlie-ET Sonnek Farms in Foreston, MN built its foundation on working with good cow families. Although genomic evaluations have changed the way they select bulls and mate cows, quality of cow families has remained a cornerstone of how they do business. Finding the crossroads where good cow families and strong genomic numbers intersect, Sonnek’s have been able to leverage the quality of their cow families to put some really impressive bulls into AI. Enter Sonnek Damion Charlie-ET (EX94), a Damion daughter from Sonnek Shottle Arcadia (VG-87) x Sonnek Morty Yes-ET (EX-91) X Sonnek Rudolph Thrill (EX-90) x Sonnek Supersire Rose (EX-90). Charlie’s dam, Arcadia was lost as a two year old due to injury and never had the chance to reach her full potential. Charlie has proven herself to be perhaps the best brood cow on the Sonnek farm of this generation, but it comes as no surprise given her lineage. Charlie has two impressive sisters by Bolton, including the well-known Sonnek Blt Double Dipped, and Sonnek Bolton Chocolate (EX-92

By: Megan Herberg, Publication Chair

DOM). 2003 All-American Junior 3-yearold, Sonnek RM Victorias Secret (EX-93) hails from this same family. Of the eleven Excellent cows in the Sonnek’s barn, eight of them hail from this family, including Charlie and sisters by Bolton, Damion, Charles and Goldwyn. Perhaps Charlie’s biggest claim to fame is her two sons Golddust and Corvette, who are lighting up the high PTAT genomic lists. One of the highest type bulls available today, Sonnek Golddust-ET at Jetstream

Genetics currently ranks third for PTAT at +4.50, UDC +4.18 FLC +2.88. Full brother Sonnek GC Corvette-ET at Select Sires is close behind ranking eighth at +4.17PTAT, UDC +3.15, FLC +4.03. Charlie’s really just beginning to make her impact on the Sonnek’s herd. “Charlie’s daughters calve in nice as two year olds but really improve as they grow and mature,” says Eric Sonnek. Her oldest daughter by Goldwyn, Sonnek Goldwyn Elphaba scored GP-83 first calf, and went on to be EX90 in her second lactation. Golddust and Corvette have five full sisters that will calve this summer and fall. Among them Sonnek GC Hotness-ET at +4.15 PTAT. Hotness has pregnancies by Doorman is now pregnant to Hero. Charlie was Sonnek’s first 94-point cow, and is proof that breeding cows on the corner of strong cow families and solid genomic numbers will serve as a profitable breeding platform for years to come.

Minnesota Holstein Feature Stories The full stories can be found in the Minnesota Holstein News

Twin Spruce Holsteins Twin Spruce Farms has had an interesting past and path that has lead them to many new adventures and expansions. We are excited to partner with them for this year’s 2014 field day and hope you can join us for the day. Twin Spruce Farms, owned and operated by Arnie and Kris Gruenes, is located in Richmond, Minn. Twin Spruce recently finished their latest project on the farm. They are now milking in a double 24 parlor that is expandable to a double 32. Their previous milking facility was a double 14 and is now being used as their fresh cow parlor. Prior to this expansion, they were milking about 1,050 cows. They are now milking 1,250 head with the goal to be at 1,400 by mid fall. As the saying goes, one thing leads to another. The decision to put in a new parlor

derived from the need for a new barn for the dry cows. This led to a bigger barn, which led to more cows, which created a need for a new parlor. There is always something new that they are striving for or working on at Twin Spruce Farm. Besides breeding show type animals, they are collaborating with a few other Minnesota breeders to have a sale this fall. Through all of these adventures, changes and growth the Gruenes family stays true to the fact that they are still in the business of making milk and running a family orientated operation. The Gruenes family welcomes you to attend the 2014 Minnesota Holstein Field day that will take place in conjunction with their open house on Saturday, June 14, 2014. (Full story can be found on pages 6-7 of Minnesota Holstein News)

Forest Lawn Holsteins There won’t be any people milking the 270 cows on the Forest-Lawn Holstein farm anytime soon. Paul, Cindy and Ashley Swenson invested in four Lely robots that has changed their daily farm tasks drastically. The nation’s oldest registered Holstein herd that resides in Nicollet, Minnesota knows that with technology advancing, a change was in place for them especially with Ashley’s plans to come home. Forest-Lawn Holsteins milked their first cow with the robot on July 29, 2013. The first few weeks required a lot of time since the cows needed to transition. But to Paul, that was one of the simplest things to do in the whole scheme of things. (Full story can be found on pages 16-17 of Minnesota Holstein News) NATIONAL HOLSTEIN CONVENTION - 29

Budjon Boarding & St. Jacobs ABC to Host 2014 WHA State Picnic Budjon Boarding and St. Jacobs ABC are excited to host the 2014 Wisconsin Holstein Association State Picnic at the farm on Sunday, July 27. This dynamic duo will provide a unique opportunity for Holstein enthusiasts to see a complete overhaul and facelift of the well-known Budjon Farms, in addition to a daughter display and the opportunity to hear more from an elite, type-focused AI organization in St. Jacobs ABC. Budjon Farms has been an integral part of the Wisconsin dairy landscape for many years. John and Mary Cull made the move to Lomira and their current location in the winter of 1998 from Pewaukee. Their son Tom married Kelli in 2000, the same year he John, Tom & Kelli Cull came home to farm with his parents. In 2003, Kelli came home to farm full-time, and she and Tom entered into a 50/50 partnership with John and Mary for both the facilities and cattle. While Budjon has always been home to a small milking herd, the boarding part of the business has truly flourished over the course of ten years. The Culls admit that the boarding part of their operation started somewhat unintentionally, when the partnership with Joel Kietzman started with the purchase of Elegance and formation of Elegance Futures. The Culls also owned additional animals with Mark Rueth and Joel Kietzman that were boarded at the farm. Elegance Futures remains a separate entity between the Culls and Kietzmans that employs the farm to house partnership cattle. Through the years the word and proof of elite care at Budjon has spread, and the business has grown and evolved to house both elite show cattle and more recently, young calves. Many animals have been housed for various partners, but the official start of the boarding business began when Jeff Butler and his partners were looking for a place to go with their animals between leaving a location and building the next. Jeff had made plans to build a barn in Chebanse, and sent 10-15 head to live at Budjon for a year and a half while waiting for completion of his facilities. The Culls had the opportunity to get to know Jeff through working with Winterbay Goldwyn Lotto, who was owned with Peter Vail, a partner of Budjon’s through other females. That year, Lotto was Grand at the Royal and truly opened people’s eyes to the special care provided by the Culls. Idee Goldwyn

62 - 2014 NATIONAL HOLSTEIN CONVENTION

Lynley, owned by Butlerview and Gen-Com was All-American Senior Three-Year-Old and Intermediate Champion at World Dairy Expo. Deboer Gldwn Snow Velvet-ET was All-American and All-Canadian Junior Three-Year-Old, and also owned by Butlerview. The results of Budjon care for this trio of females was only further proof of the benefits of breeders investing in the Budjon Boarding business. Lotto was only the beginning of special females coming to live at Budjon. Tom and Kelli were fortunate to work with Mario Comtois of Gen-Com, a Lynley partner who approached them to work with his entire show string from the end of summer through World Dairy Expo in Madison. The Culls helped Gen-Com for two years, resulting in Premier Exhibitor banners at the three major fall shows both years, along with having Grand Champion at both the Royal and World Dairy Expo. Mario’s confidence in Budjon and the care provided has set the bar high for getting cows ready for the colored shavings. In the last three years, Budjon has prepared 36 All-American Nominations (Black & White Holsteins). This impressive list includes Dubeau Dundee Hezbollah, Charwill Attic Marcy, Scientific Gold Dana Rae, Earhardt Gold Beauty, Robrook Goldwyn Cameron, RF Goldwyn Hailey, Idee Goldwyn Lynley, Siemers Goldwyn Goldie, and Budjon-JK Emilys Edair. In addition to the high profile show cow aspect of the business, the calf business is where Budjon is able to utilize another aspect of their facilities. The Culls work with various recipient organizations to acquire young calves that are produced for joint clients. The calves arrive at Budjon at about one month of age. Those calves range from everything from high type potential show calves to high genomic females to bulls destined for stud. Budjon has 100 calf hutches, ten super hutches, and a weaning barn that brings their calf total on any given day at just shy of 200 head under four months of age. Even though there is a large emphasis on the calf operation, the milk barn is still filled with 65 cows. Budjon Farms has an inventory of about 400 head. One third of these are owned by Budjon or in partnership. The remaining two-thirds are owned by the 60-plus clients that utilize the Budjon Boarding business. In the year 2013, 980 head arrived and 880 exited the farm. This results in trucks coming and going and organizing transportation and health papers on a weekly basis. Teaming up with St. Jacobs ABC One business and boarding partnership that has been very successful for the Culls is that forned with Tim Abbott and St. Jacobs ABC, cohost of this year’s WHA State Picnic. Tom and Kelli were able to get to

Tim, Sharyn, Chelsea and Caitlyn Abbott know Tim as a friend through ABS just about the time he was looking to get his feet wet in the female business. Tim was looking to invest in high profile daughters from ABS/STJ sires, and after Dubeau Dundee Hezbollah was Intermediate Champion at WDE, the Budjon/ STJ connection was born. STJ continues to have a strong business relationship and friendship with Budjon through IVF work and prominent females still cared for by the Culls. St. Jacobs Animal Breeding Corp (STJ) is focused on the development of elite dairy cattle genetics and developing dairy cattle with outstanding type traits for function and competition. STJ believes that breeding cattle with outstanding type is an art, and STJ has the desire to fulfill the need for high type genetics for breeders that are passionate about their cattle and enjoy seeing a great herd of cattle when they go to the barn each morning. STJ is owned by Tim and Sharyn Abbott of Franklin, Vermont, and remains a long time partner of ABS Global, Inc., in DeForest – the exclusive distributor for STJ products worldwide. STJ continues to invest in top-end show cows to provide premier type and breeder genetics for breeders worldwide. Owner Tim Abbott plans to keep the best cows boarded

at Budjon, as Tim says one of the cheapest expenses is the level of care at Budjon that cannot be reproduced. The Cull’s knowledge, facilities and care, in addition to their location in Wisconsin, provides an ideal situation for STJ females. Currently, STJ has one female housed at Budjon that is also owned in partnership with the Culls. Robrook Goldwyn Cameron, EX-94, has been dominating the spring show ring as a five-year-old, and calls Budjon home. The popular Butz-Butler Gold Barbara, EX-92, was purchased with Kueffner, River Valley, and Iager last year, and was Intermediate Champion at WDE 2013 and Reserve Grand at the NY Spring National this year. Barbara and Cameron’s daughters will eventually be living at Budjon. Cameron has a son by Aftershock and one by Gold Chip that will enter the STJ sire program in the fall. Barbara is a sister to STJ’s popular sire, Buxton, and continues to make bulls for the STJ program, including popular young sire Brazzle. Visitors to this year’s picnic can expect a fantastic display of STJ daughters from all programs, including the Red & White, Judge’s Choice, and Breeder’s Choice line-ups. Daughters that will be highlighted include Aftershock, Destry *RC and Buxton, in addition to Maxwell-Red and Perseus *RC. The Abbotts are also hoping to have daughters by Heztry *RC, Hezton, Declan, Attorney and Freeze. Additional females that will be on display include high-profile, Budjon-bred beauties Linjet Eileen, EX-95, and Redmarker Desire, EX-96. Also at the farm will be genomic giant Seagull-Bay Miss America, 2014 Spring Show Champion Robrook Goldwyn Cameron, Reserve Champion of the Mid-East Spring National, Rocky Mountain Sanchez Finesse,

and more! Visitors will not be disappointed in the quality and depth of females on display at every age. Budjon and St. Jacobs ABC are ecstatic to open the doors to visitors the weekend of July 27. A tag sale will kick off the festivities on Thursday, July 24, at 12:00 noon, and everything will be priced at the farm. On Friday, July 25, a BBQ oyster feed will start at 12:00 noon for the tag sale and STJ daughter viewing. On Sunday, the tag sale will still be running in addition to the STJ daughter viewing, and the Wisconsin Holstein Association will have a brief program and annual picnic festivities.

r √Breed Leader Reality-Red is the No. 1 Red TPI Sire with 99% reliability. He has ranked in the top 4 TPI Red & White sires for every sire summary since January 2009.

r √Staying Power His TPI is +1984 and has increased over 300 points since his first proof in 2008. What’s most impressive is that the increase is credited exclusively to his 2,220 producing daughters. r √Pedigree with longevity

His dam, Hurtgen-Vue HHR Vanessa-Red 3E-93 DOM, calved consistently and in her 6th lactation at 7y11m made her highest record of 37,230M 1394F 1179P. She was twice nominated “Red Impact Cow of the Year” by Holstein International. Her dam was one of 4 Very Good sisters, all over 100,000 LT. Next dam was VG-86 EX-MS DOM Cavalier with 170,000 LT.

r √Outcross Genetics

And in a dairy genetics world that has focused narrowly on a few bloodlines, the breed is in need of outcross genetics. Reality-Red has been the No.1 Expected Future Inbreeding sire for six consec-

He has dozens of Excellent daughters scattered in 11 states from California to New York. Canadian daughters are 79% GP or better.

r √Breeder confidence

Calving ease, attractive daughter pregnancy rate and somatic cell There is great personal satisfaction as well as a humbling honor when breeders have faith in your breeding program.

“Striving for that fine line of genetic excellence”

When your world comes crashing down... Our family would like to express our heart warm thanks to our community and farm friends who were able to help us at the time of our partial freestall collapse on February 20th. While our losses were significant we feel fortunate that no human life was lost. The goal is to be rebuilt and fully operational by late summer. A special thanks to Clabough and Secura Insurance who have made the step by step rebuilding process quick and smooth. 9570 State Hwy. 153, Wittenberg, WI 54499 Telephone (715) 454-6217 Fax (715)-454-6775 Carl & June Norrbom

We were sad to lose Tomkins Mr Burns SizzleRed and Dalin Durham Taffy on May 3. They will be missed at the farm. We have a great spring calf by Hestry from Sizzle and some nice ET calves out of Taffy including a Guthrie due in July. Looking forward to the results of these to be great replacements like their dams were.

Nor-Way-Pete Mathie Jazzmin EX-90 2E Lifetime to date: 10 lactations 399,329 3.7 14,996 2.9 11,524 inc.

We have always valued lifetime production as a great benefit from functional type. Currently there are 11 cows with over 200,000 in the herd - 8 Excellent and 3 Very Good. There are many more “Committee Cows” annually than cows that surpass 400,000. Hopefully Jazzmin can join that super elite club in the next month or so. Truly a great milestone.

MARATHON COUNTY HOLSTEIN BREEDERS

Introducing...

milkyhill cattle sales In 1963, as a freshman in High School I received my first project calf sired by Hickory Juryman. We later bought two calves by Cremel and Standard both Tri-State bulls. In the late 1960s we bought four bred heifers: three Headmasters and one Lad. They all went VG. All these animals were successful in my breeding program, but the Lad was the key to my success. She was 17 when she died and is buried on the farm. She had a son and daughter by Jewel. The daughter, Milkyhill Crystal Jewel Angel was EX-92 and had 10 EX daughters. The son, EX-92 went to Tri-State with an open-end contract. In the late 1970s and 1980s I sold quite a few high priced cows. I knew the index animals were overshadowing the good type cows. I sold my herd Milkyhill Crystal Jewel Angel EX-92 GMD DOM four times in eleven years - two by public sales and two by private treaty. I also had quite a few bulls go to Germany and other Countries. The first time I sold my cows I had 12 Ex, 10 VG and 6 GP out of 28 cows. This herd was bought by Phil Majerus, Fond du lac, WI. Over the years we bred and owned over 50 Excellent bulls and cows. I farmed with my dad, Edward Mielke, Sr. until he retired in 1980. I then bought the farm I live on now and updated the barn and the house. I was married to Jill in 1990 - the best decision I ever made. We have three children, Jason (Angie), Jamie, and Jeremy (Pam) and seven grandchildren - Shynia - 18, Cody - 17, Cheyenne - 14, Dakota - 12, Caylee - 11, Carlie - 6 and Kyson - 1. We also have been involved with the Foreign Exchange Program (AFS) for the past year and are hosting Mathis - 16, from Germany. We bought Village Spirits, LLC, which we owned for 20 years. We sold that in December, 2012. We also own The Korner Kitchen, LLC for the last six years. In 1998 we started Milkyhill Cattle Sales, LLC. I now work with buying & selling cattle - both public sales and private treaty. I also help with Barron County Holstein Breeders, Vernon County Holstein Breeders and Marathon County Holstein Breeders with their consignment sales. I also own a 15 passenger van. In my spare time I haul people to Brewer games, etc. I also haul Amish long distance trips. I have gone as far as New York and Canada. Ed & Jill Mielke We are thinking about selling our farm, but still working with cattle. We now rent out our barn. I am proud to be a Marathon County member and thank the association for allowing us to have this ad.

All Roads Lead to Illinois The Illinois Holstein Association is very excited to welcome fellow Holstein enthusiasts to the 2015 National Holstein Convention, June 23-26, 2015, in St. Charles, Ill. Co-Chairmen, Ron Schaufelberger and Dale Drendel, have gathered a great group of volunteers throughout the state to help plan an exciting convention! Make sure to stay-upto-date on all convention related information by visiting the official convention website at: www.2015holsteinconvention.com We already have a busy schedule lined up for next year and will continue to add more information to the website as it becomes available. As you start to plan your trip, you’ll soon learn that “All Roads Lead to Illinois.” Accommodations The 2015 National Holstein Convention will be held June 23-26, at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill. The resort is located on the original Silver Glenn Farm, home to the first Holstein classification in 1929. The resort will accommodate all guests and for your convenience all junior activities and adults programs will be held on-site. In addition to the spacious event space,

there are six restaurants including the flagship, Harvest. A premier seafood and steakhouse, the interior of Harvest boasts original barnwood from the Silver Glenn dairy barns and their booth seating utilizes the old dairy stalls. Right around the corner from Harvest is Zanies Comedy Club, housed in the original silo of Silver Glenn Farm. The resort is also home to two award winning golf courses, of which one will be used during the official convention Golf Tournament. More information will be available on the website later this fall. Once inside, you will be able to enjoy any of the three pools (one of which is an indoor/ outdoor pool), shopping and lounge areas. Hotel reservations may be made starting later 88 - 2014 NATIONAL HOLSTEIN CONVENTION

this fall. Check out the “Accommodations” tab on the website for reservation information. Pre and Post Convention Tours Plan your own pre and post convention tours with our convenient, interactive map found on the website under “Breeder Tour.” Because of the vast majorities of major highways that you can travel throughout the state, we will identify farms along the way that will be welcoming visitors before and after convention. No matter how you travel, or where you are coming from, there will be plenty of opportunities to visit other great Illinois herds along your trip. You will be responsible for contacting the farms before you travel to arrange your visit, but we will help facilitate it as much as possible. Farms will be added as the become available, so make sure to visit 2015holsteinconvention.com frequently for all the latest tours available! Host Day Tours We already have an exciting line-up of Host Day tours planned for Wednesday, June 24. Two tours will depart from Pheasant Run in the morning. All tours will begin at GEA Farm Technologies Headquarters in Naperville, Ill. GEA Farm Technologies has a great history in the milking equipment industry that dates back to 1906. Babson Bros. [SURGE] and the Westfalia group, which both pioneered machine milking around the world throughout the past century, are the foundation of the Milking and Cooling division at GEA Farm Technologies today. The Naperville, Ill., location is the North American headquarters, consisting of a storage and shipping warehouse, training facility, history museum, and administrative office space. From GEA, tours will split. One tour will head to Wauconda, Ill., home of Golden Oaks Farm and Midwest Organics. Owned by the Crown Family and represented by Bill Crown, Golden Oaks is known for breeding two of the breed’s best Roxy descendants, Champ Rae and Perk Rae. Managed by herdsman Ethan

Heinzmann and Senior Genetics Consultant Gary Janssen, the Golden Oaks herd has a 27,500 3.9%f 3.2%p RHA on 3x milking for 730 cows. Beyond the Champ Rae and Perk Rae families, they also have descendants from the Apple, Frosty, Matt Missy, Shottle Lucy and Champion Bianca families, as well

as many other exciting families! You will also tour Midwest Organics, also owned by the Crown Family. Midwest Organics, www.midwestorganics.com, is a composting business servicing the suburbs of Chicago, that incorporates some farm waste, yard waste and food scraps. You will learn about a different niche market opportunity in the dairy industry! The second option for tours include a trip to Hampshire, Ill. Luck-E Holsteins is owned and operated by Dennis and Beth Engel with their sons, Matt and Joe. Since 1968, Luck-E has bred 284 Excellent cows including three Excellent-95 and 18 Excellent-94. They have put several bulls into stud from some of their

most popular families. Well known families include Advent Asia and Advent Atlanta, and Klassy/Kiki families. Of the current 2+ lactation cows, they average EX-90, and first lactation cows average VG-85. Their RHA is 24,050m 4.1%f and 3.4%p. From there, you will travel just a 1/2 mile


2015 National Holstein Convention down the road to Lindale Holsteins and Team Holsteins. Lindale Holsteins is operated by Dale and Linda Drendel with their son, Jeff, and daughter, Julie Ashton. Team Holsteins is a partnership between Jeff and fellow farm employee Kevin Kriegel. In 2009, Lindale Holsteins had their first EX-95 cow, Lindale Eland Frisky. She was the 2009 3X National Bred & Owned Grand Champion and they currently are working with multiple

granddaughters from her. Team Holsteins recently had their first EX-95 cow as well, Team Durham Morgan, Grand Champion of the 2012 Mid-East Fall National Holstein Show. Their 150 cows average nearly a 27,000 RHA. Junior Host Day Tours Juniors will have the opportunity to attend these tours, or participate in the Junior Host Day activities. Again, there will be two options. One group will head about an hour west to Magic Waters Waterpark in Rockford, Ill. Home to seven slides, a Tsunami Bay and Tiki Island, this waterpark truly has something for all ages. Make sure to visit 2015holsteinconvention.com to experience the slides before you come with interactive videos! Another group will depart for downtown Chicago and take in the lakefront Museum Campus by exploring Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum. Take in a memorable

aquatic show at the Shedd or explore your science side and learn about the story of life on Earth the Field Museum. Either way, your trip to downtown Chicago will be both educational and entertaining!

2015 National Holstein Convention Sale To conclude Host Day, all junior and senior tours will end at the Kane County Fairgrounds, just 10 minutes from Pheasant Run for the 2015 National Holstein Convention Sale! Sale Chairmen, Gary Janssen and Brian Olbrich, will be working with an exceptional crew to present some of the best cattle from around the world for your offering. Burton Consulting will managed the sale. During the sale, their will be an Ag Olympics event and dance on-site for juniors who wish to participate. Transportation will travel to Pheasant Run throughout the evening so you can stay as little or as long as you wish. Consignments will be featured on our website well in advance of the sale, so make sure to visit often! Family Night Thursday night will be one of the premier events of the 2015 National Holstein Convention when all guests attend a show

at Medieval Times in Schaumburg, Ill. Take a step back in time to the days of chivalry and princesses and be ready to cheer on your

knight in an epic jousting battle, marvel in the awe-inspiring horsemanship and falconry and enjoy a four-course meal fit for royalty! You will be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime show that will surely have you talking about it for days after. Non-Delegate Tour For those not participating in the senior programs, a bus will depart from Pheasant Run Friday morning for downtown Chicago. The Chicago Lake and River Tour offers breathtaking views of the magnificent skyline and up-close perspective from the Chicago River. This tour will entertain everyone,

particularly those with a desire to experience the beauty of Chicago architecture. The day will conclude with lunch, shopping and exploration on historic Navy Pier on Lake Michigan. Special Appearance by Orion Samuelson We are extremely excited to welcome back Orion Samuelson as guest speaker of the Senior Banquet Friday evening. Orion is a world-renowned farm broadcaster who grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. He has spent his life bringing news to farmers across the Midwest and is sure to share some special stories during the banquet. Orion also was present at the 1975 National Holstein Convention, which was held in downtown Chicago!

2014 National Holstein Convention - 93




      After a long winter, one looks forward to spring, but this year, we will go right into summer. Just had a four day stretch of frost every morning and record lows. It is good that the crops aren’t very high or even out of the ground. Moisture finally caming to some and other areas continually getting too much in this state. As it says earlier... the land of infinite variety! We want to wish our Iowa Holstein neighbors a very successful National Convention. Knowing the conventions that you have hosted in the past, this one will be sure to please also. 2014 and Dubuque is the place for wonderful Holstein fellowship! By the time this is in your hands for reading, South Dakota Holstein will be very busy. On June 6, we will host the

94 - 2014 NATIONAL HOLSTEIN CONVENTION

“Pride of the Plains “ Sale in Brookings. The sale force has been diligently working to find consignments that will fit all your needs. From milking females and bred heifers ready to work for you, the type for the show ring, deep pedigreed heifers, & genomic heifers with the numbers. Whatever you are looking for, the right one will be at the “Pride of the Plains�. The Central Plains Show will be the following day. The show has been moved up a month so we can have the show & sale on consecutive days. The show entries will be brought into the ring before Judge Chad Ryan. I want to wish all those entering good luck! All this is being tied together with “Dairy Fest�. A new Dairy Festival being organized by the Swiftel Center to have a venue for the public to learn

about eveyday life on a dairy farm. Activities include bus tours to a large dairy, dairy obstacle course for the youth, Cow to Cup 5k run, a dairy putting green, educational forums for adults and youth, free dairy products, a free lunch, being able to enjoy our show, a “Got Milk� gala for the sponsors, and the “Thank A Farmer� program. Plus, the SDSU Dairy Club will be hosting their Dairy Camp and a 4-H regional judging school will be held.
