President’s Perspective

Well summer has come and gone very quickly. It seems like all I got done was work, church, and bingo. Well not the bingo (not my kind of game). It was a fun summer with the Holstein Association, a hot but exciting state show in July and a well-attended perfect picnic in August. As the milk price struggles to increase, feed cost shows no sign of creating a larger profit margin. I can remember not too many years ago the “experts” were telling us we had to get more “efficient” to get more milk out of our cows with less money invested. One experienced farmer told me then “we are going to get so efficient we will run each other out of business”. I do not think we are running each other out of business, but if we are unwilling to change and adapt to the market it will become more and more difficult to stay in the game. The bottom line is this change has been happening since the past generation. We have to stay optimistic that there are better times ahead. Once again, we will be having our heifer raffle with our state sale on March 21st. Tickets will be available from the state board members before Christmas. So if you are interested in having a heifer considered for the raffle, please contact Kyle Demmer (563451-5376) or myself at (563-329-0876). Be looking at your herd for a sale consignment, selection will be starting before you know it. The sale is a great opportunity to share and show off your breeding program. Also mark your calendars for Saturday, February 22, which is the annual meeting and banquet at the Country Junction in Dyersville. Until next time have a safe and enjoyable fall harvest, Carl Mensen

Futurity Challenge Entries Due February 1, 2020

How do I enter?  • Complete the Futurity Form in Excel available at www.iowaholsteins.org and email it to the Futurity secretary with appropriate fees by February 1, 2020. A pdf form will also be available online if you don’t have access to Excel. Eligible animals are those registered Holstein females born September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019. The initial fee is low to encourage you to enter several calves. You can always drop payment at subsequent deadlines. What about heifers already entered? • Entries made last year for the 2020 and 2021 Futurities will need to be updated. The Futurity Secretary will mail your form to you. Simply make payments on those animals you wish to re-enter, crossing out any you wish to drop. These entries are also due February 1, 2020. What kind of calves should be entered? • Your show calves that are already halter broke. Is your calf bred to have a good udder? Enter her! • Your fancy calf, out of a good cow, that was just the wrong age for the calf class. Enter her! • Last summer's babies. They may show as first lactation 3-Year-Olds, but that just might be to their advantage. Enter them! • The calf you plan to sell in the Iowa Spring Sale. A $2 entry may reap bigger dividends at the sale. Enter that calf! • Any calf you might sell as a show calf or junior project calf. You pay the first entry and if the buyer wants to keep up the entries they may. It is the seller's responsibility to inform the buyer of the animal's eligibility, and the buyer's responsibility to submit subsequent fees. Attention Junior Members • To be eligible for JUNIOR BRED AND OWNED awards for future Futurities your name must be listed on the animal's registration paper as the BREEDER. The Challenge • During the next year, you are breeding your cows and heifers for calves that will be eligible for Futurities in 2023 and 2024. Think about the bulls you are using. Think about the cow that is the foundation. Can you breed the futurity winner? Great cows are usually no accident! Have a plan, carry it out and let us all evaluate the results. See you at the show!

Dairy Science Student Profile

Name: Hannah Burken Hometown: Clinton, Iowa High School: Clinton High School Class Size: 400 Farm Name: Blue Hyll Dairy Major: Animal Science Minor: Agronomy Why did you decide to attend ISU? I chose Iowa State University for their well-known agricultural program. Iowa State has a variety of well know professors in a magnitude of different fields that I was interested in, some of those being both nutritional and reproductive fields. Another aspect that drew me to Iowa State was the number of teaching farms that they run and operate. My family are all Iowa State alumni, so I wanted to carry on the family tradition! What has been your most memorable college experience? My favorite college experience is being selected to go on an Animal and Dairy Science study abroad to the Netherlands. This was truly an unforgettable trip where I was able to how dairy farming differs from country to country. I was also able to see new innovations within the industry, one of those being the Floating Dairy Farm. What has been your favorite course? My favorite course that I have taken would be Domestic Animal Anatomy and Physiology Lab. I really enjoyed this class because it was very hands on, and we were able to cover and learn about multiple different species. This class was very beneficial in helping with other classes because of the array of topics we covered in terms of nutrition and reproductive aspects. I enjoyed this class so much that I helped teach the class for two semesters. What are your future career goals? My future career goals are still undecided. I’m not sure what exactly I want to do but I know it will be something related to the dairy industry. Long term career goal would be to come home and take over and run my families dairy farm, but I’d like to go into the industry for a few years before I decide to do this.

National Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder Award This year’s Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder is encouraged by her family’s history and is committed to advancing the dairy herd into the future. Holstein Association USA is proud to recognize Sheri L. Regan-Danhof of Waukon, Iowa, as the 2019 Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder. Sheri’s grandparents, William and Angela, started the farm with Guernsey and grade Holstein cows in 1951. In those early years, it was William’s progressive vision that advanced the herd. William was the first in the county to participate in DHIA testing, to use artificial insemination and employ embryo transfer. The foundation William instilled in his children and grandchildren remains the core of what they do at Regancrest. They work every day to be better and perfect the art of breeding. With 1,200 acres as her childhood playground, Sheri always enjoyed days spent on the farm, whether it was feeding calves, milking cows or helping with registrations and classification. Working alongside her dad, Frank Regan, she was provided with a lot of learning opportunities. After attending Northeast Iowa Community College to study business, Sheri returned to the farm and is now a partner in Regancrest Holsteins. She is actively involved in the genetics side of their operation, working to breed a better cow with each generation. Sheri’s thirst for genetics stems from many visits with people from countries like Japan, Korea or China, who came to the farm for sought-after genetics. She enjoyed that side of the business and it is important to her that they maintain their position in the domestic and international genetic marketplace.

Milk records now available directly from your milking system

Currently, the 900-cow herd at Regancrest Holsteins is milked three times a day in a double-16 herringbone parlor. They made the decision to go to three-times-a-day milking five years ago, in an effort to maximize stall space, parlor load and the number of cows in the herd. Overall herd health has improved since cows are being seen more often, Sheri says. At Regancrest, one of the most instrumental cows for Sheri was Regancrest-PR Barbie. Barbie epitomized the type that the breed was needing at the time, alongside the high index. She became a well-known name worldwide and helped advance herd genetics for dairy producers around the globe. Sheri describes Barbie as a well-balanced cow, with a wide rump and beautiful udder, and perfect feet and legs. Barbie was the foundation for cows that are thrifty, adapt to their environment and don’t require a lot of extra work. “Being part of Holstein USA, I think it is very simple to say that they offer the opportunity to maximize and bring added profit to your cows,” Regan-Danhof says. “They combine so much data that is out there for us to use, which in turn helps us to merchandise our best cow’s progeny. We’ve really seen that true since the start of our farm back in the 50’s through today.” Sheri and her husband, Jason, share an enthusiasm for breeding, owning and developing fine animals. Together, they have developed the Danhof prefix. When Sheri returns home each night, she knows that tomorrow is a new day - calves will be born, representing new opportunities for the herd. She knows there is always more to learn, to experience and goals to set for the operation’s future.

TriStar AMR allows producers with robotic milking systems to have records collected from the on-farm software and processed by AgriTech Analytics once per month. 305-day records for Registered Holsteins will be loaded into the herdbook database and available for publication on pedigrees.

2019 Iowa Holstein Princess Hello Everyone! Honestly, the last few months have been relatively uneventful for me as princess so I would like to take a little time to reflect on the past year. 2019 has been quite the year for agriculture; weather has been anything but cooperative, the dairy industry is still seeing consumer distrust, commodity prices are too low, and it seems there is another farm selling off every time we turn around (just to start the list). Despite all of this, I would like to congratulate you. Whether you are in the same position as January 1st, 2019 or standing better or worse, something happened that is worth celebrating. This event may be a blue ribbon at the county fair with a homegrown animal, hitting a new production goal, or simply putting your boots on in the morning. I challenge everyone to take a moment to appreciate whatever wins you may have had in the last year, big or small. As the end of the year only gets busier, I would like to offer a family favorite dessert recipe. This is the go-to for potlucks because it is the three things everyone loves: cheap, easy, and chocolate. Aunt Michelle’s Fool Proof Chocolate Pie 2 cups Milk 1 package Instant Chocolate Pudding 1 tub Whipped Topping 1 Graham Cracker Crumb Pie Crust Make the pudding as directed on the box (aka. Mix the instant pudding and milk and refrigerate until it sets up). Mix the pudding with the entire tub of whipped topping. Put the mix in the graham cracker crust. That’s it! As always, I love to be as involved as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there are any events or projects in which I can be of assistance. I can be reached at (319)361-8883 or alcostello19@gmail.com. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Alexis Costello

Mary Steffens, 91, of Clermont, Iowa passed away peacefully at the Ossian Senior Hospice in Ossian, Iowa where she had been on hospice care since August 28, 2019. Mary was born in Story City, Iowa, on May 10, 1928, to Otto and Agnes (Valen) Christensen. Mary began her education in a rural school near Story City. When she was almost 13, the family moved to a farm near Randalia. Mary graduated from Randalia high school in 1946 where she had many wonderful memories and friends. After graduation Mary worked in Waterloo as a clerk at the “Three Sisters” dress shop. She then worked as a telephone operator in Waterloo and later West Union. It was in the West Union telephone office where she first saw Reuben when he came in to make a call. Soon after that, they got together at a dance at the Oelwein Coliseum. Reuben and Mary were wed on August 1, 1948 at the St Paul Lutheran Church, Postville, Iowa. They lived briefly in West Union before moving to the farm they would live on for the next 35 years. Reuben and Mary were proud owners of Reu-Mar Registered Holstein Farm just west of Clermont. They raised four children there: Brenda, Alan, Kevin and Karen. Alan took over the farms in 1983, and Reuben and Mary moved to their newly built home in Clermont. Mary was a wonderful homemaker and cook. She was also very involved with helping on the farm, especially with the process of registering the calves. Throughout

her life she was a great encourager to her children in their activities such as 4H and school. Mary will always be remembered for her warm and welcoming demeanor; she truly loved visiting with friends and family. She cheerfully welcomed family for Christmas and other events as long as she was able. Being with family was always one of Mary’s greatest joys. Mary was a longtime member of West Clermont Lutheran Church. Mary’s faith was always important to her.

Mary and Reuben were also avid dancers for many years, after all, that’s what brought them together! For many of their retirement years, Reuben and Mary enjoyed spending time in Texas where Reuben could fish and Mary could further develop her love of crafts and painting watercolors.
