FROM THE EDITOR As I complete the sixth issue as editor of the Illinois Holstein Herald, I have taken a moment to look back at the last 18 months. When Molly Florent and I took over the positions as editors, we challenged ourselves to make the Herald “bigger and better.” I feel I am getting closer to that goal—but, there is always room for improvement. As a member of the Illinois Holstein Association for the past 23 years, I still look to the Herald as the source for our association’s news. The Herald is a tool and resource for Holstein enthusiasts and breeders from across the state to market their herd’s genetics. There has been a steady increase in the number of advertisers over the past year-and-a-half; let’s keep that going! This issue is 100-pages front to back. Take ample time to go through the magazine. Thank you to those breeders who have continued to support the magazine and thank you to new advertisers in the Midwest Section. With the fall show schedule in full swing, good luck to all exhibitors. I look forward to seeing many of you at World Dairy Expo and Louisville. I would also like to encourage everyone to attend the Illini Golden Opportunity Sale on October 25, 2008, in Hampshire. Check out page 28-31 of the Midwest section for some exciting consignments and hotel information. The Senior Holstein Convention is the first week of December— plan to attend! The Clinton County Club has planned an excellent convention. Information and registration form is on pages 23-24 of the Herald. I wish a safe and bountiful harvest to everyone.

From the Field...

Observations from the Field I have thought about making a list like this and finally sat down and did it.

I. We have so much information available today that it is almost impossible to sort through it. Always remember the basics, cow comfort, herd health, and nutrition. All three must be provided at high levels in order for a dairy to succeed. Two out of three won’t work. The most exciting thing I do is visit a dairy that is providing adequate levels of all three and giving well bred Holsteins the chance to fully express their genetic potential. II. The #1 problem I see is poor foot health. The most disappointing thing I do is stop at a dairy that has invested thousands of dollars per cow but failed to spend the few

Dutchess Domain

dollars required to keep their cows feet healthy. There is nothing that will control foot warts on every farm, but there is something that will work on every farm. III. Crossbreeding? There are a number of dairies that have become dissatisfied with the Holstein breed because there is something about their facilities or management that has limited their herd’s reproductive performance or productive life. Then someone convinces them that crossbreeding will make things better. When you run into one of these people, thank them from the bottom of your heart. Anyone who is willing to breed milk out of their cows, is a true friend of the dairy that can manage the modern Holstein. IV. Breeding Registered Holsteins with “market appeal”. If you want to breed cattle that will appeal to the buyers of Holstein seed stock, categorize your matings as “index matings” or “type matings”. There are very few bulls that fill both categories. Timing is everything in the index business. Don’t try to breed yourself into an index family. You

either have one or you don’t. If you want to get into the index business buy your way in. When selecting bulls for a “type pedigree” use high reliability bulls when possible. The reality is most of the 90% reliable bulls will disappoint you and you will end up with something that has limited market appeal. You can have a family that has many generations of VG and Ex cows but if you don’t have the right sires in the first couple generations they may not very marketable. V. When selecting a clean up bull, look for a bull that has proven high conception. Most people turn to young sires and have no idea if the bull’s conception is good or bad. In many cases you can buy a high conception bulls in quantity and not pay that much more than a young sire. VI. Remember, breeding marketable cattle is a study in statistics. Always try to put the odds in your favor. Betting against the odds will most likely cost you money. It seems to me that people use too many “hot pedigreed” young sires. The odds of them being marketable after they receive their proof are simply not very good. Genomics will help but they are not available yet.

Hello and greetings from southern Illinois. If many of you do not know me, I am Melinda Kollmann, and I am your 2008 Illinois Holstein Dutchess. I live in New Baden and am a part of the Clinton County Junior Holstein Club. My parents are Steve and Marilyn Kollmann and they own Koll-Kreek Dairy. I am currently a senior at the Southern Illinois University of Carbondale majoring in Animal Science. I am also the President of the Illinois Junior Holstein Club and participate in many activities throughout my years in the junior organization. I hope that everyone had a great summer on the farm and also showing their animals at the fairs. I know I enjoyed my summer visiting all the fairs, it sure went by fast. Congratulations to all the class winners as well as the champion animals. Lastly, I wish luck to those that are exhibiting animals at the World Dairy Expo and also to all the members that will be participating in the dairy judging contests.

Unlimited Potential


to the Legends of the Fall Sale

Selling - Olmar Shottle Babe, a December calf with a unique and sought after pedigree. She is arguably one of the most exciting animals to be consigned to public auction from Olmar Farms. Her Dam:

Olmar Lynch Baby Bumble *TV VG-86 EX-MS 2-00 2x 234d 18,251 4.2 758 3.1 563 inc.

Baby Bumble is a beautiful young Lynch daughter that has caught attention of bull studs and embryo buyers. She is currently contracted for two bulls to AI. Her Shottle daughter is made right and is the only female from this exciting young cow. Baby Bumble has three young milking sisters scored VG-88, VG-86 and GP-83 (fresh one month).


Olmar Durham Baby Bunny *CV 2E-92

4-06 2x 365d 35,677 3.3 1186 2.9 1004 Baby Bunny is proving herself as a great brood cow as well, a cow that does it all in the herd, high production, beautiful type and breeds back easily. She transmits her tremendous strength and width of rump consistently. The next two dams are scored 3E-92 (still in the herd in her 7th lact.) and 3E-91.

Marabel’s EX Stormatic sister is a visitor favorite! 2004 marked the expansion of our milking facilities from 50 to 80 stalls. We have been fortunate to have had 50 new Excellent cows scored here since that time. Forty-seven are homebred. They have been capable producers with all but a handful having already completed a 1000F record and two-thirds having completed a 30,000 milk record. Of great importance, all but one of this group completes from 3-10 generations EX or VG. Nearly 80% are multiple generation EX cows. Marabel is more than just another Excellent. She is a favorite here from a family that has been making this kind for over 35 years.

Congratulations to Mark & Angie Ulness on their National Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder Award Name: Angie J. Ulness Hometown: Sturgeon Bay, WI High School: Southern Door High School Class Size: 106 Farm: Cycle Farm Holsteins Major: Dairy Science, Business option

ALUMNI PROFILES Name: Mark A. Ulness Hometown: Valders, WI High School: Valders High School Class Size: 100 Farm: Ragnar Holsteins Major: Dairy Science, Production option Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? I decided to attend UW-Madison to have the opportunity to be a part of the proud tradition and prestige of being a member of the UW-Dairy Judging Team. UW-Madison offered a great education by a faculty that consists of many of the dairy industry’s top researchers and developers of management practices and technology. What was your most memorable college experience? There are many memorable college experiences for me including traveling to Pasadena to witness the Badgers win the 1999 Rose Bowl, but the three trips to the Royal Winder Fair in Toronto, Ontario and the farm tours that we arranged at some of Canada’s finest farms, are probably the most memorable and enjoyable college experiences. What has been your favorite course? My favorite course was Dairy Science 414 Ruminant Nutrition taught by Dr. Ric Grummer. We read research papers published in the Journal of Dairy Science covering different current issue topics in the field of dairy nutrition. We discussed each paper in a round table discussion format, and debated the advantages and disadvantages of the findings. How did your experience at UW prepare you for your career in the dairy industry? The people that I met and the contacts that I made were the best preparation for my career in the dairy industry. With none of them being greater than meeting the love of my life and eventual wife, Angie Brey. Going into dairy farming, I knew that I needed a life-long partner and supporter, and I found a good-looking one at that!

UW-Madison Department of Dairy Science

Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? Every October we went as a family to watch the Holstein Show at World Dairy Expo. It was during those trips, combined with an excitement for dairy judging, that lured me to Madison. UW-Madison had it all for me! Big Ten atmosphere, a world-renown Dairy Science program, an organization and women’s living unit I found in the Assoc. for Women in Agriculture, and most importantly Dr. David Dickson & the Dairy Judging Team. What was your most memorable college experience? My most memorable college experience would be working at World Dairy Expo. The Badger Dairy Club offered a wide variety of opportunities to help out there. I enjoyed spending time with members decorating the show-ring, washing milk cans in the parlor, serving grilled cheese sandwiches and working nightline amongst the best cattle and breeders in the world. It was during those times that friendships and bonds were formed, especially my freshman year. What was your favorite course? My favorite course would have to be Dairy Science 466, an advanced dairy cattle breeding course taught by Dr. George Shook and it consisted of only about 6 of us. It included grad students and undergrads that had an interest in genetics. We read and discussed research papers and had a lot of practical skills taught in the class as well. Don’t get me wrong, it was hard to decide, I enjoyed Dy Sci 433, Dy Sci 101, Dy Sci 205, Dy Sci 535 to name a few more. How did your experience at UW prepare you for your career in the dairy industry? I would have to agree with Mark! The long-lasting friendships and contacts that I made at Madison are the ones we value so much today. We both have a solid base of great friends and of course we also found each other.

Good friends, Good neighbors, Good cows, Good times!

Dairy farming and the Registered Holstein industry is not an easy life. But, with the right friends and attitude, anything can be looked at in a better situation. Whether it’s talking cows on a Saturday night or showing at the county fair, it’s bound to be a good time.

Berensvale Excitement... • Nordic-Ridge Rubens Whisper*RC, EX-90, made her way from the WI Nationals to Berensvale. Her impressive maternal line is bound to have a lasting effect on the Berensvale herd. • Our debut in the show-ring at the Shawano County fair went well. From 9 entries, 6 brought home 3rd place or higher, including winning the 2 year old class and also getting the nod for Best Udder in the 2 year old class. • Almost a year in our new location, just 15 miles west of Shawano, the cows have settled in and your visit is welcome anytime.

Da-Lynn-Jema Happenings... • A busy summer was in store for the Goers family, including our new 3,000 gallon bulk tank, milkhouse/office remodeling, and a new baby in the family! Matt also got the chance to show at Shawano County Fair for Berensvale and what an experience! Thanks guys! • Our herd continues to grow, and we have 21 heifers due from now until April. Heifers sired by Dundee, Kite, Lartist, Aspen and other high type sires will soon join the herd. • Like to talk cows? Matt does! When the cold winds blow, stop in the warm barn and find out what’s new at the Goers Farm!

She had the total package: type, production, test, pedigree and exceptional longevity. At 8 years old, Giana had not aged a bit. Her phenomenal udder and flawless type made her a joy to have in the barn just to look at and admire everyday. Giana looked fantastic at our District Show in June before cancer quickly took her. Since losing Giana on July 31, we have shed many tears. A part of us was buried with her. Giana left an enormous hole in our barn and our hearts. It is very hard to go to the barn and not have her be there. We miss you Giana!

A BIG thank you to all of these convention sponsors who helped make the 2008 National Holstein Convention possible. Without your generous support we could not have hosted such a spectacular event in Wisconsin Dells, June 23-26. 96 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Fall 2008

The Dairy State in 2008 Comments From 2008 National Holstein Convention Attendees Hosted by the Wisconsin Holstein Association

Thank You...

Please know that all of you that helped make this awesome 2008 National Holstein Convention happen are deeply appreciated for your time and dedication. There is no way to make sure we get every name in a listing of those that helped... whether you painted a mask, helped at the dairy bar, chaired a committee, decorated for the banquet or just were a good host and gave someone a helping hand, please know that this convention could never have been nearly as spectacular without all our volunteers helping hands. We have received a number of emails and cards from many states and people from throughout our dairy industry and we wanted to share them so everyone will know how wonderful the convention was for those in attendance. We would like to thank each of you for your efforts in hosting the National Holstein Convention. All of your planning and dedication certainly paid off – a wonderful time was had by all, adults and youth… our hats off to each of you. Tom and Linda Thorbahn, National Director Thank you for your hospitality in hosting the 2008 Holstein Convention. We all had a good time! Kansas Juniors Thanks again from the bottom of my heart for all your tremendous work on our National Convention. We couldn’t be more pleased with how things went. Your entire group of volunteers is to be commended! Jodi Hoynoski Holstein Foundation Programs Manager

Congratulations on a great convention!! I heard so many positive comments from people in attendance... it will be hard for future hosts to top the convention you and your team put together! Christina Congratulations on running such a super convention. Rave reviews were heard everywhere. Your efforts are greatly appreciated! The Wendorfs The outside trips were great, we went on the Upper Dells tour, and the lunch just blew everyone away – we all thought it would be like a box lunch, but were we surprised – a sit down dinner! And was it good! The Judds What an outstanding national convention! World Dairy Expo staff

Chris, everyone at the WHA office and all involved with planning a great National Convention, I just felt compelled to drop you a note of congratulations on an awesome convention! Everyone who was involved in the planning deserves a great round of applause. Todd and I have been to 3 national conventions, and none of them measure up to the show that Wisconsin put on! I know I’m partial to our great state, but in this case, everything down to the last detail, was top-notch! We had a few visitors stop by the farm and all of them were wowed by the extravaganza. If there was any behind the scenes scrambling or glitches, they were well concealed! Please pass this on to anyone who needs to see it, and thank you all for the hours and hours and hours of work! Trish What an event! You, your staff and all the myriad volunteers put on an awesome convention from start to finish. We’ve heard nothing but positive comments from everyone. It’s so good to have such an uplifting event for the industry. And after a few more days of regrouping, maybe we can all take a breath and relax! Sandy I’ve heard wonderful things about the National Convention – kudos to you on a job well done! Hope the Convention went off well and that you all are finally recovered from it. I heard from a couple of the attendees that they really enjoyed it, so be proud of all your efforts. The word out there is GOOD.

Congratulations to you and everyone else for what could only be called the BEST CONVENTION in Holstein USA’s history!! David Winkels, Excalibur Sires, LLC Thanks to you and all your staff for being the glue that held us all together. We are still amazed that we were a part of it all and thank you for your trust that you placed in us. Kelly Additional Comments from Holstein USA’s Post-Convention Survey...

Fall 2008

Superior Young Dairy Producer Award Program The 2008 Illinois State Fair Superior Young Dairy Producer Award (SYDPA) program was held August 13, 14 and 16, in conjunction with the Illinois State Fair Junior Dairy Show. Fifteen 4-H and/or FFA dairy project members from across Illinois took part in the event. This fourphase competition, emphasizing the youth’s knowledge of the dairy industry, awarded each of the top five overall participants with a $1,000 scholarship. The 2008 scholarship recipients are: • Matt Drendel, Hampshire, Ill. (Kane County) • Nick Harre, Nashville, Ill. (Washington County) • Kaleb Pruemer, Shelbyville, Ill. (Shelby County) • Philip Shanks, Garden Prairie, Ill. (McHenry County) • Meghan Stoll, Mt. Pulaski, Ill. (Logan County). The $5,000 in scholarships was sponsored by Archer Daniels Midland, Decatur, Ill., and Illinois State Fair. The Land of Lincoln Purebred Livestock Breeders Association sponsored the individual plaques. The first phase was a 50-question dairy management test. Questions were asked on dairy nutrition, health, reproduction, milk marketing, and other dairy related information. The top three contestants for this phase were: • Matt Drendel, Hampshire (Kane County) • Nick Harre, Nashville (Washington County) • Philip Shanks, Garden Prairie (McHenry County) The second phase was a four station skill-a-thon on various aspects of the dairy industry. Contestants had to identify feedstuffs, evaluate pedigrees, understand dairy cattle reproduction, and identify dairy equipment. The top three contestants in the skill-a-thon were: • Nick Harre, Nashville (Washington County) • Kaleb Pruemer, Shelbyville (Shelby County) • Philip Shanks, Garden Prairie (McHenry County) The third phase of the contest was showmanship. During this phase contestants were evaluated on their ability to show their animal in front of the judge. The Purebred Dairy Cattle Association showmanship scorecard was used as the basis for determining points earned. The top three winners for this phase were: • Tyler Carter, Greenville (Bond Co.) • Michele Fluty, Bloomington (McLean Co.) • Meghan Stoll, Mt. Pulaski (Logan Co.)

Junior dairy exhibitors participated in the 2008 Superior Young Dairy Producer Award program held during the Illinois State Fair. The “top 5” award winners received a $1000.00 scholarship sponsored by Archer Daniels Midland, Decatur, Ill., and Illinois State Fair. Pictured left to right are: Philip Shanks, Garden Prairie; Matt Drendel, Hampshire; Meghan Stoll, Mt. Pulaski; Nick Harre, Nashville; and Kaleb Pruemer, Shelbyville. Plaques were sponsored by Land of Lincoln Purebred Livestock Association.

The fourth phase of the Superior Young Dairy Producer Contest was a judging contest. The judging phase consisted of animal selection by placing four classes of dairy cows and two classes of heifers. The top three contestants for this phase were: • Michele Fluty, Bloomington (McLean Co.) • Paige Garner, Mulberry Grove (Bond Co.) • Kaleb Pruemer, Shelbyville (Shelby Co.) This year marked the 13th consecutive year for the Superior Young Dairy Producer Award Program which has provided participating youth the opportunity to compete for $65,000 in college scholarships since its inception. The program is developed and coordinated by Dave Fischer, University of Illinois Extension Dairy Educator. The purpose of the contest is to create an educational activity that promotes youth development, career development, and personal growth through increased knowledge of the dairy industry.

Fall 2008

Convention The Udder Moos Clinton County

Now that the summer excitement of fairs and shows and bonfires are over, and we are all settled back into groove of things, June 23rd seems so far away. That was, however, the start of one of the largest Holstein Conventions in history. The Illinois Holstein Juniors had a lot to look forward to. We watched our teammates compete in dairy jeopardy, public speaking, and Kelly Sheehan, DJM semi-finalist, was interviewed. At the end of that first day we found a chance to check out the water park. We had a great time there with all the slides and wave pool—a few even tried out surfing! After dinner we presented our banners and there was a mixer where we had the opportunity to do the limbo! For the Wisconsin host day, we had the option of either touring several farms or touring one farm and then going to Mt. Olympus Theme Park. Those of us who went to Mt. Olympus had lots of fun; some were even brave enough to ride the rollercoaster with a giant drop that went under the parking lot! That evening was the Wisconsin Nationals Sale. The sale was hosted by Heatherstone Enterprises in Baraboo, Wis. This year’s sale was one of the most largest ever attended, with more than 2,000 in attendance. And the the cattle sold that night definitely deserved that much attention! For those juniors not interested in the sale, “Movie Night” was hosted at the hotel. A handful of us left the sale early to catch “You don’t mess with the Zohan” and those that didn’t have to study went to see “The Incredible Hulk.” And all that studying did paid off for the Junior dairy bowl team who took fourth place overall. The Senior team put forth a good effort and also did well. We had the chance as well that night to experience “riding the ducks.” That was a neat experience and we also learned a little along the gorgeous route we took on the Wisconsin river. That night the juniors had loads of fun at the dance and some of us enjoyed a few competitive games of cards afterwards. The last day was the awards banquest where the winners from throughout the week were announced. Needless to say, some of grew a little restless having to sit still for so long, but we all had fun just the same. It was a great trip; we had a great time, made new friends, and even learned a little while we were at it. Good luck to all who have the chance to compete in California next summer!
