From the President

A Genomic Star

by Joe Miley Greetings once again from Wayne County. It is hard to believe summer has almost passed us by, and we are moving into the fall Joe Miley harvest already. It has certainly been an eventful summer for Ohio Holstein members. The National Convention in Richmond, Virginia, was well attended by Ohio members, delegates and the Ohio Junior Association. If you haven’t attended a National Convention, I recommend it. It is fun, educational and a great way to see great cows and meet Holstein breeders from all over the country. I also would encourage our Junior members to join the trip next year. It is a great way to make friends and contacts that will last a lifetime! Congratulations to all members who participated in our district shows this summer. The quality of the cattle exhibited throughout the state was exceptional. If you missed the Holstein shows at the Ohio State Fair, you missed an outstanding event. The depth and quality of classes was amazing. Another highlight was the Junior Show Grand Champions of all the breeds being included in the Ohio State Fair Sale of Champions for the first time. Thanks to John Spreng, Angi Kaverman and everyone else that made that possible!! The Ohio Summer Sale held August 17 was also very successful. It was very well supported with an average of $3034.18 on 49-1/2 lots. The sale shows a profit to our association of over $8,000. Thank you to everyone who contributed! The Ohio Holstein Board of Directors meeting was held September 6 at the Holstein office. It was great to have 100% of our board present. I will state again that this is a very good board and that everyone’s input and opinions are vital to our association. If anyone has questions or concerns, contact your district representative. I would like to welcome Jennifer Bouton to the board as a representative from District 4. Jenn will begin her term in December. In the General Managers’s report, Don Alexander stated that he and

Esther are working on the Ohio Holstein Association booth for World Dairy Expo. If you get to Madison, be sure to stop by the booth. He also gave a report on the Fall Sale to be held November 19 in Wooster. We are having the sale with the Ayrshire and Brown Swiss breeders. Plans are to sell 55 Holsteins, 25 Ayrshires and 20 Brown Swiss. Contact Don for more details or to consign. Plans are also in progress to have a sale in conjunction with our annual meeting on March 16, 2012, at the Richland County Fairgrounds. The Annual Meeting Committee reported that the meeting will be held in Bellville at the Quality Inn on March 16-17. Details will follow. The Show Committee reported that there were 216 head of Holsteins exhibited at the Ohio State Fair. Juniors are still doing fundraisers to finance their projects and trip to National Convention. The Membership Committee reported that membership was very strong this year (786 paid memberships) and the committee is getting started on next year’s membership drive. Tom Thorbahn and Julie Renner

are moving forward with plans to host another National Convention in Ohio. We are scheduled for 2025, but we may be able to move that date up several years. The next meeting of the Board will be December 13 at 10:30 a.m. at Select Sires in Plain City. Once again, I thank our committees for the work they do. If you are on a committee, I encourage you to be active. If you are not currently on a committee but would like to be, call me; we will fix that!! Contact me with any questions or concerns. My cell phone number is 330-466-7223 and my email is, or contact Diana or Don at the office at 330-264-9088.

Thanks — Joe

New Board Member from D-5 Hello from District 5. I am Greg Conrad, and I am the new board member from District 5. I served two terms on the Ohio Holstein Board back in the 90’s and am excited to be back on the board again. Conrad Farm was started by my grandparents, Tom and Anna Mae, over a half century ago, and this is where I have lived my whole life. My grandmother still lives on the farm, and my parents, Don and Joyce, are still very active with the farming operations. We are located in the

southwest corner of Pickaway County, 45 minutes south of Columbus near a town called New Holland. We farm 400 acres and have around 250 head of cattle on the farm. We usually milk just under 100 Holsteins and Ayrshires. Nearly all of our animals are registered and 25% are Ayrshires. We currently have two part-time employees. My wife Judy and I both graduated from The Ohio State University in 1989, where I received a bachelor’s degree in dairy science. Judy and I have

been married nearly 20 years. We have four children: Mikayla, 17; Macy 15; Macrae, 13; and Maylon, 10. Judy thoroughly enjoys caring for our children, from preparing meals to driving them to and from activities to tucking them in bed every night. She also stays busy with landscaping, gardening and assisting on the farm when needed. She is racking up the miles on the road this year driving Mikayla to various county fair and district shows. We are very proud that Mikayla entered the Holstein queen contest, without the push from her parents, and is serving as the 2011 Ohio Holstein Queen. Our children are involved in many activities through school, 4-H, FFA and church and help on the farm when they can. They all love to show their dairy cattle at the county and district levels and especially at the state fair. We harvest all of our corn silage, ear corn, square bales and round bales. We like to get our animals out on dirt as much as possible. All of our Holsteins carry the Conrad prefix. When selecting bulls, we look closely at feet and legs and udders to make sure we are breeding for longevity. We believe a measure for a good cow is not just one big milk record, but many. We currently have two cows over 13 years of age, one at 290,000 lbs. of milk lifetime and the other at 270,000 lbs. of milk lifetime. They are both sired by Conrad Mandel Jack, a Mandel son out of a homebred Excellent Blackstar. I try to get off the farm when I can and make it to the activities of my children. My family and I attend Grace United Methodist Church and are active there. I am also a board member for the American Dairy Association Mideast. I believe that it is important to tear down barriers and build unity if we wish to succeed in the future as purebred breeders and dairymen.

25th distribution. If you need ideas for ads, check with the office, as we may have show photos or Junior photos that you could use. Ad focus can be on potential All-Ohios, youth, celebrating family, a roundup of the year’s activities, thanking helpers and buyers and sending holiday greetings. The text will include district shows and advance information on the Annual Meeting and Convention/Spring Sale in March. Once again, we thank COBA/Select Sires for graciously agreeing to sponsor the All-Ohio calendar, which will be a part of the January-February issue. Remember to get your photos taken and to the office by the December 1 deadline. Juniors, please include a headshot or small photo of yourself with your entry. Have a safe harvest.

This issue and our May-June Membership issue are being distributed from the Ohio/New York booth in the Coliseum at World Dairy Expo and will reach a wider-thanusual audience. We had a number of photos from the National Convention and from the Ohio State Fair that we were unable to run in this issue due to space and cost considerations. I appreciate breeder advertisers such as BenAlli, Line-View Dairy and Seven Gables, who featured photos of Junior members in their ads. I also appreciate breeders, such as Richman Farms and Kiko Farms, using show photos in their ads, and others like Jaloda, Lorawae, Miley, Paradise-Valley, Quality-Quest, Quietcove and Springhill for advertising their show winnings. Surely there were more winners than that. The Pine Tree Dairy and Hartline ads advertised specific sales. Other breeder ads referred to purchases or sales, new records or that hot new cow or cow family. New advertisers this issue are Line View Dairy and Neueway Farms. We aim to have each breeder ad include a call to action. This may be something as simple as “Look for our Consignment,” “Visitors Welcome,” “Stop and See Us,” Call for More Information” or “Look for Us at the Show or Sale.” Breeders always have something to advertise. Looking forward to the next issue, we would like to have all the ads in the office by October 20 for the November

The 54th National Holstein Futurity was held July 30 in the Coliseum at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus. The event began with Steve Maurer singing the National Anthem along with Lisa Gallager, organist, and the AllOhio Choir. Gregg Topp was the announcer for the show and the parade into the ring. Morris Van Gorden’s four-horse hitch is always a crowd pleaser, and Ohio Holstein Queen Mikayla Conrad joined Morris on the driver’s seat. Riding in the wagon were Lynn Harbaugh, Judge; Mary Lou Topp, National Holstein Futurity Executive Secretary; and Stacey French and Sharon Martin, secretaries for general manager of the Ohio State Fair Virgil Strickler. Riding with Bob Sommers in his 1935 Flatbed Chevy truck were Angi Kaverman, Dairy Superintendent, and Don Alexander, general manager of the Ohio Holstein Association. Fourteen beautifully groomed three-year-old Holsteins circled the ring waiting for the judge’s decision. When the lineup was complete, Miley Advent B Gem-Red, led by Jason Miley of Miley Holsteins Ltd., West Salem, stood in first place as the National Holstein Futurity winner and Best Udder in the class. Second place went to Express SMD Velvet Tara-ET, led by Jeremy Adams of Stan-Mar-Dale/Express, Urbana, and third place and second Best Udder went to Koneta Dundee Jade, Koneta Holsteins, Jackson Center. Pineybrook Spice-Red from Lah-Dale Holsteins, Marysville, was the fourth-place three-year-old. Standing in fifth place was Brookview-E Lifestyle-ET from Brookview Farms, Fremont. Wabash-Way Bolt Marion from Topp-View Farms, Botkins, was sixth, and Wolf-Ridge Bolton Delilah from Call-Del Farm, South Charleston, was seventh. Sanorvalley Terrason Gem, from Bryce Sanor, Homeworth, was eighth, and Richlin-J Advent Maggie-ET from David Finefrock of New Carlisle was ninth. Rounding out the top ten was Indian-Stone SS Lindsey-ET from Indian Stone Holsteins, Versailles. Futurity winner Miley Advent B Gem wore the white satin blanket and red rose collar as she paraded to the song “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey.

The Futurity wishes to thank the following who contributed to the success of the show: John Spreng and all of the Ohio State Fair Commissioners; COBA/Select Sires and Genex for the cash award to top-placing Junior Katelyn McDaniel of Springfield for her 11th-place entry, Call-Del Frantabulous Dottie; photographer Carrie Topp; Stacey French and Sharon Martin, secretaries; Lindsey Bowen, Lucy Bambauer and Leslie Maurice for making the rose collar; Paul Haskins and Glen Sageser for lining up cattle in the barn; sanitary engineers Brennan Topp and Keaton Topp. The Futurity especially thanks all the breeders for participating in the Futurity for 54 years and encourages everyone to enter to keep this exciting show as a special event at the Ohio State Fair. Members of the National Holstein Futurity Board of Directors are Sherry Smith, Heather Yoder, Joe Miley, Tony Boshes, Paul Haskins, Keith Topp, Dave Shannon and Nevin L’Amoreaux. Looking ahead, there are two opportunities for entering the 57th Futurity, which will show in 2014.

General Manager’s Views — Don Alexander

This photo was taken at the 2011 District 8 Holstein Show. Can you identify this group?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, especially the buyers and consignors, that helped make the Ohio Summer Sale a success. Our goal was to average over $3,000 — mission accomplished. Plans and selections are under way for the Ohio Multi-Breed Fall Sale. This year, Ohio Ayrshire Association and the Ohio Brown Swiss Association will also participate in the event, which will be held at the Wayne County Fairgrounds on November 19, 2011. The sale will start with the Ayrshires at 10:00, Brown Swiss at 11:00, followed by the Holsteins at 12:00. There will be approximately 75- 80 selling. Pete Spike has taken over the Ohio Holstein Association 20 | OHIO NEWS | 9-10/2011

website, which can easily be accessed on; click on to Ohio Holstein Association. Along with the Ohio News, future sale catalogs can be found on the website, along with a calendar list of activities and a listing cattle for sale from breeders throughout the state. We would encourage breeders and members to let us know any news or items of interest, meeting dates or upcoming events that you would like listed on our website. Please contact Pete Spike by email at or by phone at 740-363-2184. The 2012 Ohio Holstein Association memberships will be mailed the first week of October; remember there is a 10% discount if received by December 1. Congratulations to the Board of Directors and our members for the increase in membership this year, and we would like to challenge everyone for another increase in 2012. There has been an option added to Junior Memberships: a one-time fee of $20.00 that will cover a Junior from age one through 19. Annual Junior memberships can still be paid at $2.00 per Junior per year or $5.00 per family. If you have any questions, please call the office at 330-264-9088. Be sure to look for the Ohio Holstein Association booth that we’ll share with the New York Holstein Association again this year in the lower level of the Coliseum at World Dairy Expo. Good luck to everyone from Ohio participating in the greatest show in the world, and safe travels to all who attend. Take care, Don

Oxygen Barrier System This easy to use patented “impermeable” plastic reduces loss of silage in bunker silos to less than 5% and virtually eliminates surface mold. In combination with protective tarps, the film is protected from bird, rodent, and UV damage. To complete the system, Silostop sandbags are used on the overlaps. It is not necessary to provide weight over the entire surface so tires are effectively eliminated.

Silostop film being laid at US Dairy Forage Research Center

BarbWire Let’s “Get Real” About Childhood Obesity We are constantly bombarded with newspaper articles and television Barb Lumley reports on the growing problem of obesity in children. Often these reports blame the problem on dairy products, and some schools — not only in other states but also in Ohio — are now refusing to allow children to drink chocolate milk with their lunches. I have to ask, “What is really causing the obesity problem today?” I certainly don’t believe the blame should be placed on dairy products! Years ago, when meals were put on the table, they consisted of meat, potatoes, garden vegetables and whole milk, often from Jerseys with high butterfat content. Real butter and homemade jam went on the bread, whole milk and butter in the mashed potatoes; the meat usually had some fat on it, and if there was pie for dessert, the crust was made with lard. If foods were fried, it was usually in lard or bacon grease. And, yes, when I went to school, there were a few chubby kids, and I was one of them, but we hardly knew of any children with diabetes. What was different then? We ate what our moms cooked and put before us. Our moms were busy ladies, and they didn’t cater to our likes and dislikes. It was “eat and be quiet.” We didn’t go to the cupboard and grab a bag of Snickers, Oreos or potato chips in between meals. If we were lucky, Mom might have time to bake some cookies, pie or a cake maybe once a week. And we always asked before we took any! Candy was usually a special treat. Hopefully, we would receive a few pennies to spend on candy when we went to the grocery store. They didn’t have bags and bags of every kind you can imagine sitting on the shelves, as they do in the stores today. Candy was for Christmas time, when you were excited to get a chunk of Hershey’s chocolate chopped off a huge block laying on the grocery store counter, or you made taffy or fudge at home. You didn’t eat candy every day. And soda pop? Sometimes when dad went to the local filling station to buy gas or get a tire fixed, you were allowed a bottle of Orange Crush or Coca-Cola from the cooler. The refrigerator at home didn’t hold 24 cans of Mountain Dew, containing 46 grams of sugar in each can. And if you were lucky enough to have a few bottles of your favorite soda in the refrigerator, you didn’t drink four or five of them a day. Instead you drank lemonade, iced tea or Kool-Aid. And when you were working in 90-degree summer heat, it was lots of water. We didn’t sit around all day watching television or playing video games. You went outside and played fetch with the dog or skipped rope or took a long walk along the

creek. You rode your bicycle or got together with the neighbor kids to play ball. If you were older, you mowed the lawn, but not with a riding lawn mower. You pushed one! Or you helped hoe the garden, so mom had plenty of those fresh vegetables to cook for you. For those of us on the farm, there was a multitude of chores. Loading hay, unloading hay, feeding calves, carrying water, pitching manure, bedding stalls, sweeping floors — there was plenty to keep us busy. We ate good, healthful, homegrown food, and we used every dairy product. We didn’t consume products loaded with sugar, corn syrup, sodium, hydrogenated oils, xantham and guar gum, sorbitan monostearate, sodium polyphosphates, chicory root fiber, carob powder and many other ingredients that we can’t pronounce or identify, and don’t know where they came from! We know that milk comes from a cow, and dairy products are made from milk. One percent chocolate milk has 140 calories per cup and 23 grams of sugar, less than most kinds of soda. It contains Vitamins D and A and calcium. White milk comes as 1%, 2% or whole milk, and if you had no other food available, you could survive on it. Baby calves do for several weeks! Try that with Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, sport drinks, etc. There is a new program at the University of Illinois that combines a Ph.D. with a Master in Public Health degree, focused on child obesity prevention. This program is being funded with a $4.5 million grant from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The research program is called the Illinois Transdisciplinary Obesity Program, or I-TOPP. I have to ask, “Do they really need $4.5 million of taxpayers’ money to figure it out?” It’s time to “GET REAL” about what really causes childhood obesity and diabetes. It isn’t chocolate milk!

The Queen’sby Mikayla Corner Conrad Hey, Holstein friends! For those of you whom I have not yet met, my name is Mikayla Conrad, and I am the 2011 Ohio Holstein Queen. I am truly enjoying the opportunity to represent Holsteins and the dairy industry. The past several months, I have been traveling around the state going to the district Holstein shows and county fair open dairy shows. I have loved every minute of almost every trip. I say “almost,” because Mom and I had some problems with the GPS once or twice. Every show has had different ways of running the shows, and each show has run pretty smoothly. I have also had a chance to expand on my own judging skills. I have done some dairy judging through my FFA chapter, so I know the basics. By watching all the shows, I have been able to listen to the judges’ reasons for placing the classes. I can tell I am getting better when I place the class the same (or close to the same) as the judge. My favorite part of this whole experience as queen so far has been meeting so many new people. I have met many people involved with the shows and Ohio Holstein Association, as well as several girls who are county, district or state queens or princesses. I know the show season is starting to die down, but if there are county fairs or any other miscellaneous events you would like me to attend, I would love to come! To get a hold of me, email me at or call me at 740-495-5067. I look forward to attending many more shows and meeting more people.

Woman of the Year As the summer comes to a close, look around at the women close to you. Who has fed calves, registered calves, milked the cows, made hay, made sure everyone was fed in the field, at the table and at the shows? You get the picture — think about nominating that indispensable woman at your farm for the Ohio Holstein Woman of the Year. The nomination form will be in the November-December issue of the Ohio News.

Ohio’s Statewide 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Article and photos provided by Bonnie Ayars Garth Brooks said it so well in his song titled “Rodeo,” but obviously he has never seen a Quiz Bowl competition. Ohio’s 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl was just completed, and it was obvious to observers that some of those lyrics could be rewritten for our group! Their eyes were focused, clear and eager. Their fingers and hands were clutching a buzzer. Questions and answers received full attention And WE call the game “Dairy Quiz Bowl” competition! The drama of those lyrics is just how the “game” played out July 5 at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the campus of Ohio State. Questions such as “what is another term for calving” and “who is the managing editor of Hoard’s Dairyman” were just two of the many answered correctly on Tuesday, July 5. Teams from all over the state came to do their best in this annual competition. Some traveled from counties nearby, and others spent the night in Columbus to avoid the morning commute. Over a light breakfast, coaches, volunteers and participants shared some social time before the Junior and Senior written quizzes were given. A walking tour of campus helped to pass the time while the brackets were formulated. The Junior competition included teams and double elimination rounds, and the Senior division was formatted similarly to the popular Jeopardy game show. With hands poised on the buzzers, answers were provided confidently, some with hesitation, and others with wit. For example, one young man seemed to draw humor as his face reflected exactly whether he knew the answer OR did not know it. The tension in the room melted away into laughter as his

face displayed good luck AND anguish! Meanwhile in another area of the 4-H Center, older 4-H youth were selecting their favorite dairy categories for Jeopardy.

(Korey is on a bit of a break this issue since he can’t type due to his broken wrist from football, so Mom is filling in this issue for him.) The Ohio Juniors have had a busy summer. Along with all the various shows, a group of Ohio Juniors traveled to the National Convention in Richmond for competitions. A group of 28 got together for the Ohio Junior Fun Day at Magic Mountain in Columbus and had a good time. The Ohio Juniors had an ice cream social after the Junior show at the Ohio State Fair for Junior exhibitors and Judging competitors. Then the Juniors led for the Ohio Summer Sale as well as

provided a lunch stand in August. It’s been a busy, busy season! Now we move into fall with plans for a fall/winter activity — so watch your mail, the Ohio Holstein Association website or the Ohio Junior Holstein Association Facebook page for updates. We also kick off our annual Holiday Cheese Sales — an order form is included on this page. Cheese will be available for pickup at the Fall Sale in November. We are also selling raffle tickets for the Sullivan Chute and Mat, donated by Beck’s Hybrids and Matt Lawson. Tickets are $5.00 for one or $20.00 for five tickets and are available from Ohio Juniors or advisors. Please consider supporting these Junior fundraisers. Funds raised by the Juniors help pay for and keep costs down for activities such as Fun Days, annual meeting activities, National Conventions, memberships and more. We appreciate the support of organizations and people like the Lawsons; Beck’s Hybrids; Pearl Valley Cheese; ADA Mideast, which donated the

ice cream for the State Fair and milk for the spring lunch stand; and Smith Dairy, which donated milk for the summer lunch stand. It’s time to start thinking about State awards for the year — Junior All-Ohios, Production, Queen, Distinguished Member, Memorial and more. Some of those forms are in this issue or next, and some are available from advisors — please contact the OHA office for more details. If you are NOT receiving Junior email updates, please contact Diana Miley at the OHA office to verify or add your email. Grapevine – continued from page 12

On July 16, Richard Harstine, Dundee, District 3, and his cousin Matt Harstine were operating a tractor and brush hog on a steep hill when the machine overturned, seriously injuring both. Matt suffered burn injuries and is receiving ongoing medical attention. Richard was treated for bruises, lung and shoulder injuries and a fractured ankle. On August 2 about 15 “angels” — neighbors — descended on Harstine Dairy to help make haylage. The Harstines continue to thank all those who worked, volunteered, provided equip-ment or food, etc. or otherwise helped the family. Richard and Cathy and sons Bo, Ty and Colton have a milking herd of 65 Holsteins. • Sorry to hear that Ramsier Dairy, District 7, had a fire on July 29 with the loss of barns, bulk tank and a robotic milker. No cows were lost, and they are back to milking. • Lausin Farms, District 1, had a close call when chopped straw stored in the hayloft began to heat. Firefighters were able to load the straw into manure spreaders and distribute it on nearby fields. Only one side of the barn was affected, and no cows were lost. • Greta Call, D-13, has retired after a 46-year teaching career in the Northeastern School District, in subjects ranging from Home Economics to Consumer Science. • Junior members added since last issue: – Miranda Sloan, D-1 – Benjamin, Hannah and Josh Rennecker, D-7 – Ashley and Kelly Havermale, D-7 – Matthew and Courtney Lund and Allison Moyer, D-8 – Todd Lahmers, D-3 – Megan, Mallory and Brock Michealis, D-10 OHIO NEWS | 9-10/2011 | 39

Your Beef Checkoff Dollars at Work Your Beef Checkoff. Investing in Beef Safety, Nutrition and Promotion.

Promotion GrillMaster Experience Across America Mobile sampling and demonstration tours are fast becoming one of the most effective platforms in engaging with American consumers in today’s society. Savvy consumers want to see, taste and experience products for themselves before they make any further decisons. To leverage this interest, the Beef Checkoff joined the likes of Sam’s Club, the Kansas City Barbeque Society, Trybe Targeting and Bull Outdoor Products to develop the American GrillMaster Experience. The American GrillMaster Experience began in June and runs through October 8 at Sam’s Club locations across the country in an effort to get the most out of the grilling season. Each event incorporated beef grilling demostrations using both charcoal and gas, as well as, product samples for consumers to enjoy. Additionally, the Checkoff funded “Beef Team” will be in attendance at each event to provide recipes, cooking tips and other materials designed to educate the masses. While the tour was not able to make a stop in Ohio, Checkoff staffers are working together to make these stops possible in next year’s campaign.

Retailers Getting the “Beef Fast Facts” The American GrillMaster Experience wasn’t the only promotion executed at the national level throughout the summer to keep beef top of mind as folks hit their patios. The checkoff worked closely with

retailers across America to provide the new edition of the “Beef Fast Facts” that reached more than 850 meat-case managers arming them with the latest data and sales tips to help promote beef for grilling and position these retailers as expert beef resources for their shoppers. In the Northeast, not only were the Beef Fast Facts distributed but also a plethora of recipe booklets, retail posters, shelf wobblers and an informationsal “Stay Home, Grill Out” Website directing consumers to beef information, recipes and sweepstakes entry. More than 315 retail locations throughout the Northeast participated in the promotion with the Website alone garnering 18,446 vistors.

Consumer Information You Heard It From a Farmer Over the summer the Ohio Beef Council joined forces with the Ohio Livestock Coalition and other commodity groups to execute the “You Heard It From a Farmer” radio campaign. This campaign was executed in an effort to educate consumers about what Ohio livestock farmers do on a day-today basis to bring the food they love to tables across Ohio and across the country. This campaign gave listeners a firsthand account of how Ohio farmers ensure exellent animal care, protect the environment and provide safe, wholesome food for today’s consumers. “You Heard It From a Farmer” kicked off on August 15 and ran through August 28 hitting the radiowaves in the Columbus, ClevelandAkron, Cincinnati, Lima, Zaneville,

Dayton, Youngtown, Toledo and Wheeling markets. Representing the beef indusrty was the voice of the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association President Dave Felumlee. Dave spoke on food safety and the many steps he takes on his farm to set the highest of standards to consistently provide a safe, healthy product.

Industry Information Raising Our Voices “U.S. farmers and ranchers have raised a lot of things. Except our voices.” This is the message being extended throughout ads across the United States. The U.S. Farmer and Rancher Alliance in part with the Beef Checkoff are presently executing this the first phase in a movement to lead the conversation about the future of food production. USFRA is seeking farmer and rancher engagement in a campaign that ultimately will reach key influencers and help build consumer trust in the beef industry as well as agriculture as whole. It begins with you! visit the revamped Website at and submit the one thing you wish consumers knew about the beef industry or food production in general. We should be the ones telling the real story so let your voice be heard!

The Ohio Beef Council and the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board are responsible for developing programs that increase the demand for beef. For more information, contact the Ohio Beef Council, 10600 U.S. Highway 42, Marysville, Ohio 43040, 614-873-6736, beef@

— In Memoriam, continued — DALE A. DEAM, 76, of Springfield, died July 7, 2011. The son of Edward and Isabel (Allen) Deam, he was raised on their dairy farm in Clark County, where he developed a love of both agriculture and competitive sports. As a 4-Her, he proudly showed his beautiful Holstein cow Gracie as grand champion at the Champaign and Clark county fairs. At Northwestern High School, he was known as “Little Yogi” for his prodigious catching skills on the baseball team. At 16, he tried out for the Cincinnati Reds and was told to come back when he was 18. Dale decided against baseball, choosing instead to attend college, but remained a lifelong Reds fan. Dale and Carol Ruth (Pyles) Deam were married January 5, 1954, and soon after, Dale joined the U.S. Army, serving in Germany for two years. He toured the country as a member of the Army baseball team, sending photos and souvenirs home to Ruth and their baby son Tom. When he returned home, the family moved to Columbus, where Dale followed in his father’s footsteps by attending The Ohio State University. A true Buckeye, Dale enjoyed OSU football and basketball and instilled in his family a love for Ohio State. Two new additions to the family, daughters Beth and Michele, came along during that time. The Deam family would expand over the years to include two more boys Steve and Neil. Dale graduated with a degree in Agricultural Economics in 1960. The family returned to the family farm in Springfield, where Dale milked his Holstein herd to fund his and his father’s real passion, racing Standardbred horses. The family enjoyed watching their horses race and win at Scioto Downs and local fairs. Dale was a member of North Hampton Community Church, Ohio Holstein Association, Clark County Farm Bureau, United States Trotting Association and The Ohio State University Alumni Association. Dale is survived by his wife Carol; sons Thomas A. Deam of West Liberty, Steven S. (Deidre) Deam of Hilliard and Neil M. (Jennifer) Deam of Sugarcreek; and daughters Michele E. (Steve) Specht of Dover and Beth A. (Bill) Davenport of Pittsburg. Dale was blessed with 20 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
