President’s Perspective

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Well another year is almost behind us. We all had enough ups and downs throughout the year but look at the big picture, it was not a disaster. The corn crop did not burst the bins, but we have had worst years. We know Covid-19 is not going to be over until most likely next spring. For most of us life will go on, but with more caution. With that being said, planning is started for the March 20th 2021 Video State Sale. The selection process for the heifer raffle and sale has begun. There will still be a live auctioneer and live bidding in West Union on March 20th and a complimentary meal, just NO live animals. Photos and pedigrees of the lots will be on display. We are reaching out to our neighbors who have breeds of other color to merchandise there pure bred animal in our sale. Don’t forget to attend your district meeting. The time and place may change due to the pandemic, keep in touch with your district officers. I would like to thank Paula Smith for the 30 plus years she has dedicated to our state association. She has made the president’s job a lot easier with all her information at her finger tips. I am sure she will remain a very active within the Holstein association activities. Again THANK YOU Paula for all you have done. This is the time of year we all should look back and be thankful for all we have. One does not have to look far to see someone who has a bigger problem or a harder task or a more severe health issue than your own. So enjoy every day the good Lord gives you and do your best to make tomorrow enjoyable for those around you Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a safe HOLIDAY season! Carl Mensen

2020 Iowa Holstein Princess

Seasons Greetings! 2020 has definitely been one of the craziest, most unpredictable years yet, but we’ve almost made it through! I hope everyone had a plentiful harvest, and I would like to congratulate everyone on their success showing this year. The quality of Holstein cattle at these shows was impeccable. As the holiday season continues, I hope that everyone eats as much food as possible, stays warm despite the dropping temperatures, and visits their loved ones. I’ve been grateful to be able to promote delicious dairy products and advocate for agriculture this year, and I’m excited to keep doing what I love as 2021 comes along. I’ve kept busy here at Iowa State University participating in various events through Block and Bridle, Sigma Alpha, and the Dairy Science Club where I was recently elected to serve as the Historian this upcoming year. I’m very excited for the spring semester and am looking forward to more, hopefully in person, events. If anyone needs to contact me, my email is ambere@iastate.edu and my number is (563) 929-6035. I’m wishing everyone a fun and healthy holiday season! Happy Holidays, Amber Engelken

Iowa State University Dairy Science Student Profile

Name: Tehya Demmer Hometown: Dundee, Iowa High School: West Delaware High School Class Size: 106 Farm Name: Demmer Dairy Major: Animal Science

Why did you decide to attend ISU? When I decided my career path, I created a list of schools that would help me reach my goals. Iowa State offers many opportunities to help students figure out their path and allows students to become involved on campus in many different ways. What has been your most memorable college experience? When reminiscing on all the memorable moments at ISU, I struggle to pick just one. I would have to say that playing intramural sports with the dairy science club. This fall we competed in the softball intramural, and we always had a wonderful cheering section and team “moms” who would bring Capri Suns and snacks. What has been your favorite course? So far, my favorite course has been my dairy cattle science class. I love learning more about the industry and seeing my peer’s ideas in opinions in our class discussion questions. This class also has a lab portion where we can go to the dairy farm and gain hands on experience with the cows and tools we are leaning about. What are your future career goals? After graduating from Iowa State, I hope to begin Veterinary School to pursue my dreams of becoming a production animal veterinarian.

Futurity Challenge Entries Due February 1, 2021

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, 2021. 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, 2019 to August 31, 2020. 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 2021 and 2022 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, 2021. 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 2024 and 2025. 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!

Reuben Henry Steffens, 96, of Clermont passed away peacefully on October 19, 2020, with his children by his side at the Ossian Senior Hospice where he had been residing since March 12, 2020. Reuben was born on the family farm near Eldorado, Iowa, October 2, 1924, to Edward and Frieda (Vagts) Steffens. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Peters Lutheran Church, Eldorado. Reuben began his education in a rural school, Dover #4, and graduated from the West Union High School in 1942. After graduation he worked on the family farm until he joined the Army in 1945. Tech-4 Steffens served in the Pacific Theater and was very proud of his service to his country. After he was discharged from the Army, Reuben attended Upper Iowa University in Fayette and worked at the extension office. It was during this time that he saw a lovely young telephone operator, Mary Christensen, at the telephone office in West Union. A mutual friend later introduced them at a dance at the Oelwein Coliseum. Reuben and Mary were wed on August 1, 1948, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Postville, Iowa. They lived briefly in West Union before moving to their own farm four miles west of Clermont, a farm that they would develop and expand over the next thirty-five years. Reuben and Mary raised four children there: Brenda, Alan, Kevin and Karen. In 1983, Reuben and Mary moved to their new home in Clermont, where Reuben continued to have an active role in the farming operation in partnership with Alan. Reuben had always loved farming; he was born to be a farmer. It was Reuben that brought the first registered Holstein to his parents’ farm in 1938 as a 4-H project. Reuben would win many awards with this Holstein heifer as well as many other awards in the years to come. Reuben and Mary started simply with five cows and five sows and a few chickens, but through hard work and dedication they added cows and acres over the years and built Reu-Mar Registered Holstein Farm into a very successful dairy operation. Besides his success with farming, Reuben was recognized by Fayette County in 1997 with the Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award. Both Fayette County and Iowa honored Reuben with distinguished dairyman awards, including Iowa Master Holstein Breeder award.
