Ayrshire Digest


Executive Secretary’s Column

T

here has been great discussion in our industry regarding the need for dairy partners to work more closely together for a wide variety of reasons. In breed association circles, this topic has been more than discussion, especially for the smaller dairy breed associations like ours. Working with others has been a reality for the Ayrshire Breeders’ Association for decades, whether it’s by utilizing contract services or getting maximum benefits from member organizations, such as National PDCA, US Livestock Genetics Export and National Pedigreed Livestock Council. Unless you have an inner working knowledge of the management of the ABA, you might not be aware of how much we actually do work in tangent with others for efficiencies. We enjoy and appreciate many services from our landlord, COBA/Select Sires. We work with Purebred Publishing to produce the Ayrshire Digest and work closely with Brown Swiss, Guernsey and Milking Shorthorn in a joint classification program. Most recently we are expanding our classification services with the other mentioned breeds to include a joint classification program coordinator. We feel that collectively, we can be more efficient and timely, which in turn will provide a more positive service to our breeders. It will especially be an added benefit for the herds with multiple breeds for sign-up. Streamlining the process and giving breeders great service can only improve the program and ultimately give more incentive to score more cows. With all of these great benefits in mind, please be aware that there will be a transition period for breeders and our office to make adjustments for maximum benefit. One of the chief complaints this coordinator will address is the need to get schedules out to breeders more timely each month. In order to accomplish this, we need your cooperation in meeting the sign-up deadlines. The sign up notices and scheduling will come from the Brown Swiss office. If you have multiple breeds, you will need to designate these breeds on the application. If you are on the REWARDS program, you still must sign up to be included on the schedule. If you are sending payment with your application, you will make your checks payable to the ABA just as in the past. The classification data will continue to be transmitted to the ABA to be included in our pedigree system, and your post classification reports will continue to be sent from the ABA office. As we progress, please be aware that the program coordinators will be streamlining the sign up process to include more notification by email, text and other digital options. With change comes the perfect time to review other operational procedures. Our office routinely gets questions on how the online pedigree system works and how lactation data is added to pedigrees. The ABA pedigree system that is available through the web site is an access point that is updated from the ABA mainframe once a week. If you have registered an animal one week, you will not be able to view the pedigree online until the next weekly online update. If you participate in ABA programs such as REWARDS, we receive updated lactation data monthly from the processing centers as long as you have made your records available for release from your testing organization. Please keep in mind that these records come to us the month after the test date. If you are not enrolled in our programs yet have made your records available for release, the official 305-day or less completed records will come to us from the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding with each of the three traditional proof periods (April, August and December). All of these lactation records will be added to our pedigree system as long as your animals are identified with their official registration numbers and are coded as Ayrshire with your testing organization. If you have any concerns about the accuracy of pedigrees for any of your animals, please feel free to contact us for assistance.

Iowa Breeders Looking Forward to Hosting Convention Goers

T

By Robin Alden

he first of the two farm stops on Thursday, June 22, will be held at Yarrabee Cows in Brooklyn, Iowa. The dairy milks about 600 Jerseys and crossbreds and about 3040 Ayrshire cows in a double-12 “parabone” parlor. They are currently converting to a double-14 parlor, which convention-goers may get a chance to check out in June. Yarrabee Cows breeds for a balanced Ayrshire that works well with the Jerseys. Ayrshires have been on the dairy since the early 1900s, when Dane Lang’s great-grandfather brought them into the herd. It was when Dane returned around 10 years ago that the Ayrshires were registered and began working up the percentage program. Now the herd is home to many well-known Ayrshire cows that will be on display Thursday afternoon. When asked about his favorite cows, the first cow family that comes to mind for Dane is that of Covey-P&A Modem Reese EX-92. Reese was the Honorable Mention All-American 4-Year-Old in 2012 and was purchased at the last National Convention Sale that was held in the state of Iowa. Reese was just fresh again at nine years old and has several lactating daughters in the herd. Another fan favorite is Right-Angle T Harley EX-94 5E, the Unanimous All-American 100,000M Cow in 2015. Harley will be fresh again at 13 in May! Also due in May is Onword Wilton April EX-91, the All-American 4-Year-Old in 2014. A final favorite of Dane’s is Ridale Berkley’s Vienna EX-90. Although they may have several show ring staples on the dairy, don’t expect the Ayrshires at Yarrabee Cows to be massive-framed, high-

producers. The Langs prefer moderate-sized cows with moderate production and high components, as these are the cows who fit in the stalls and parlor easier and can keep on pace with the Jerseys. Ayrshire bulls that have worked in the past sire components, longevity and moderate frames. Dane has planned a jam-packed day at the farm that will begin in the morning with a Youth Dairy Exhibitor Clinic. This clinic is open to all 4-H youth who are interested in exhibiting dairy cattle, not just conventiongoers. The official tour begins at 1 pm, and there will be plenty to do in the allotted two hours. The Langs have planted some test plots of Beck’s Hybrids seed and will have Beck’s representatives available to discuss with curious attendees. Dave Wallace of the Brown Swiss Association will be on hand to answer questions about the classification program. The Langs also breed more than just quality Ayrshires – they also breed Border Collies, and there will be stock dog demonstrations at the farm. The second farm tour stop will be at Iow-Shire Farm in Newtown, Iowa. Lloyd and Dianna Machin are excited to welcome convention-goers to their 100% Ayrshire commercial dairy, which just moved into a brand-new double-10 parallel parlor in early April! The herd consists of 110 cows and roughly the same number of young heifers, plus bull calves who are kept through weaning and then sent to a feed lot. The cattle are kept in dry lots, as all available ground is used for crop land. The Machins focus on production, but their herd is still completely registered. Their grandchildren like to show, but Lloyd prefers a productive cow over a pretty one. The current RHA is around 18,000M. Lloyd is especially proud of the new parlor with a sturdy, stateof-the art interior and boosted efficiency – the

milking time has been reduced from four hours in the old side-open inline-6 parlor to now just about an hour and 20 minutes! Lloyd purchased his first Ayrshire from Lawrence VanderWerff in 1963, and has never owned another breed since. When asked why he purchased an Ayrshire to begin his dairying journey, he laughed, “Somebody dared me – that’s the truth!” But as all Ayrshire enthusiasts know, the breed has a lasting power that has kept them on the dairy for over 50 years now. Lloyd is happy to say that two of Lawrence’s daughters will be attending the convention this year and will be at the farm on Thursday evening. Lloyd and Dianna Machin were married in 1969 and purchased the current farm in 1973. They have two sons, Eric and Ed, and a daughter Elaina who passed away seven years ago. Eric and his wife Chris live on the farm with their three children and help with the daily operations. Ed and his wife Megan live nearby with their two children and enjoy helping out on weekends. Lloyd has been an ABA member since 1969, is currently on the Board of Directors and is running for a second term. He also served on the Breed Improvement Committee and is a member of the Iowa State Ayrshire Club. Lloyd is very enthusiastic about this year’s convention, saying, “I think it’ll be the best convention we’ll have done.” The accessibility of the headquarters from the highway, the plethora of nearby activities and the variety in meals are three of his supports to this claim. Iow-Shire Farm is only approximately 20 minutes from the Prairie Meadows Hotel. Dinner will be served at Iow-Shire Thursday evening, with plans to serve a special roasted pork loin, the product of a four-day secret recipe from a nearby chef. Dinner will be picnic-style and is sure to be one not to miss.
