Maximum Milk Production Mycogen® brand Silage-Specific™ BMR corn hybrids are bred for the highest digestibility possible to maximize milk production. In fact, our BMR corn hybrids produce more milk per cow than any other silage corn on the market — an average of 4.8 pounds more milk per cow per day. With the highest forage digestibility, producers can feed their cows less grain and more high-quality forage for a greater return on investment.

MLVs are safe for pregnant cows.

But new information can tell a different story about modified-live vaccines (MLVs)—as evidenced by a new university investigation that found an association between on-label use of MLVs and IBR abortions.1 In a July 15, 2012 article published in JAVMA,2 researchers reported a reproductive loss of 25%. Ultimately, use of MLVs in your breeding herd is up to you. Please consult your veterinarian to discuss vaccine options, like Vira Shield®: the number one selling inactivated viral vaccine safe for your entire herd, even pregnant cows and heifers.

LET THE CHIPS FALL WHERE THEY MAY. ClariFly Larvicide helps control the flies that spread mastitis. ®

Visit for tips on establishing a Healthy Heifer Udder Program.

ClariFly® Larvicide is fly control that goes directly into the feed that your herd consumes. It passes through the animal and into the manure where flies breed so there are fewer flies to irritate your cattle. It is estimated that flies are responsible for 30 to 50% of heifer mastitis cases. ClariFly® Larvicide is cost effective fly control that can help reduce the fly population that can spread bacteria from one animal to another. Help keep your cattle healthy and profitable, make ClariFly® Larvicide a part of your integrated pest management (IPM) program. Ask for it to be added to your feed or supplement.

Southeast: Marvin Schoen announced that they have a new member, Lohman farms. Northeast Central: Kate Geppert reported the district show was held with Spring Show. Sophie had Jr champion, Borman’s had Grand. Rademachers will host the district picnic in October 2012. State Fair: Kate G. reports that the rules have been updated to be in line with World Dairy Expo and PDCA. They have been combined and streamlined. Make note of new rules. The Ayrshires should have gone on probation, but in order to help save the breed they have combined the Ayrshires with the Milking Shorthorns into ‘All Other Breeds’. A breed is to have a 3 year average of 30 head. There is a problem with premiums. Dairy has overspent for many years. Two breeds went over money allocations (Holstein, and ?). The Fair has sent proposed changes. It has been agreed to go to a point system to allocate all of the premiums. Discussion on the system ensued. General concession is to go to a 2 to 1 ratio for milk cows and heifers. Amount given for each place can’t be determined until after all the shows (divided by number of head showed). Question: Where does the money for the milk go? It goes to MDA to pay for the milk crew, supplies, and repairs. They have to sell Grade C and pay substantial transpiration. Some years there is a surplus that goes to MDA. They are trying to get the leftover for the fair and premiums. Field Representative: Callie Unruh gave the field representative report. Holstein had a record year in 2011. There will be a discount on genomic tests if in complete: 15-50=3% off, 51 & over=7% off. There was a staff conference in AZ and new things are going to be introduced. Holstein is not raising rates this year. Dairy Hall: Awards given February 10th, Columbia. Awards are as follows: Dairy Leader- Wilbur Feagan, CEO of F & H Food Equipment Company, Springfield; Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder- Ron and Patty DeLong, Marionville, MO and Larry Purdom, Purdy, MO; Meritorious Service-Gary Estes, , Auctioneer and Dairy Farmer, Rogersville; Pioneer Leader – Paul Selken Smithton, F.W.A. Vesper, St. Louis. University Extension: Ted Probert gave the extension report. Bill Lambertson is the Interim Leader. Dairy staff include: Ted, Tony, Stacy, Dr. Poock, Joe Horner, and Joe Zoutwich. Dairy Profit seminars in mid-Feb. Several studies going on at Mt. Vernon. Dairy Judging camp will be in Springfield, July 22-24. Dairy Shrine: Ray Schooley spoke on behalf of the National Dairy Shrine. Encouraged everyone who isn’t a member to pay $50 lifetime member fee that funds scholarships for young people. Also need to nominate more people from MO for awards. COMMITTEE REPORTS: Show/Spring Show: Mike Wilson reported to utilize state fair photographer again and to contact Lexie and Ella Wright. If a member wants to contribute to the state fair exhibitor meal, it would be most welcome. Derek Page didn’t show last year and no one took it on. It was well appreciated. Committee asks that all members follow the rules for any show that they attend and to be mature adults that represent our association well. Southern National: April 10-14. Going to keep All-MO point system. Michelle Ramaeker volunteered to keep track of points. District secretaries are responsible for getting correct info into Jodi. State Fair=20; Spring Show=15; District show=10. Spring Show: John Denbigh reported that the show is Saturday, March 31. We are not inviting other breeds and fees will be the same, no calf sale. Show starts at 10am and MU will have straw available this year for $3/bale. Clinton County sale is the same day. Janice Ling would like the show committee to discuss the possibility of moving the Spring Show to the southern part of the state. 100th Anniversary Book: Marianna Thomson reported on the book progress. She stated it all worked together with the National Convention. Pre-orders are at 119 books and the reduced price of $35 is available until March 15. People need to check the lists and submit anything they have by the first week in Feb. There are about 60 herd biographies making 200 pages. The rest will be history to total around 500 pages. The final cost of the book will be around $40 and they are exploring other online sales, Holstein World, Convention Webpage, and Holstein International. The estimated printing and layout cost is $21,000 for a 500 page book. This bid is 750 copies, but the bids with lower copy counts were actually higher in cost. It will be soft cover and any cover ideas need to go to Mary Angelo. Plan to present book at ceremony at National Convention – this is also good for FFA and home libraries. There was discussion on the book cost and finance committee expressed concern. If the convention makes money that would cover the deficit of the book, given that the two really go hand in hand. Brad Groves moves and Shirley Best 2nd to continue with the book. One nay vote – motion passes. Sale: Dean Dohle discussed the 2011 state sale and thanked everyone for the fine lineup of cattle that looked really good for the sale. The drought and recovery from low milk prices and higher fitting costs were factors in the sale losing money. The committee recommends that Missouri not have a fall sale in 2012, since we’ll just complete the National Convention sale. It was suggested to look into a spring sale and asking Jersey to include some cattle as well. Futurity: Becky Durst gave the 2011 report and since there is going to be no state sale they needed to find a location for futurity. Robthom volunteered to be the host in mid-September. They do not have any entries this year in the contest. The recommendation of the committee is to have it at Robthom as a show and field day combined. Judge suggestions were Leo Hoff and Janice Ling (only one judge). Do not announce anything about animals as they enter ring, but do all of the announcements at the end. If a jr enters an animal at age 21, is it still a jr animal when it is showed and the jr is now 24? There was a lot of discussion on this. This situation has not happened yet, but could in the future. Larry Wright moves the futurity adopt the same rules as the Holstein Assoc. Matt Day 2nd. Therefore once a jr turns 21 they can finish their year as a jr, but following that they become an adult member. Motion passes. National Convention: Barry announces we are nearing hosting the National Convention June 25-30, 2012. Barry also needs bus riders that like to give information about the area. Each committee gave a report: 1. Finance – Letters were sent and they are now calling companies to receive commitment. 50K is committed at this point, goal is still 150K. Committee in need of contacts with local Springfield companies. Also need contact with Case IH and Bass Pro. 2.
