editor’s note

H HAPPY 2017!

How lucky are we, that no matter what kind of a year we’ve had, no matter how many shoulda/woulda/coulda moments we’ve experienced or less than favourable hands we’ve been dealt, at the start of a new year, we always get the chance to start from scratch. The score is settled, the slate is wiped clean and we have the opportunity to start fresh! In this issue you’ll read about a family from Dufferin County who did just that after experiencing a tragic barn fire seven years ago. Their story is remarkable and serves as a reminder that even after our darkest days, there is always something worth working towards. While the start of new year is an opportunity to look ahead, in this issue, we also take a look back at the many great successes achieved last year. You’ll find the winner of our Heart of the Herd competition, results from the Royal and the Classic, and a large poster to hang in your barn office showing off the All-Ontario winners from 2016. Last but not least, the 2017 National Holstein Convention Committee has been busy putting the final touches on their exciting program taking place from April 5-8 in York Region. You’ll find all the details starting on page 42. We encourage you to enjoy this special convention issue and hold onto it until the spring – it includes everything you’ll need to “experience the city lights” in all their glory! Sincerely, Andrea Emond, Link Editor thelink@ontario.holstein.ca

A

general mana ger’s messa ge

WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR! Ah the new year! A chance for a fresh start! A time to look back and reflect on and appreciate the successes of the past year. A chance to evaluate how you coped with the setbacks, and more importantly, an opportunity to build on the progress made over the previous twelve months. Personally having worked with dairy farmers for over 40 years, I am continually amazed by their determination, creativity, ingenuity and ability to make the best of a difficult situation; very much living examples of the Kelly Clarkson song “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” During a six-week period starting on February 21, we have over 50 industry leading dairy operations across the province opening their doors to fellow breeders during District tours (see this year’s maps starting on page 22). We encourage you to take advantage of these occasions to learn from each other. Take the time to talk to fellow members, evaluate their operations and get some ideas on overcoming challenges and making the most of opportunities. We welcome 2017, all the best in the coming year! Regards,

Adrian Vander Wielen, Interim General Manager adrianvw@cogeco.ca

Spirit of 4-H Winners

10. Dressing up means wearing white pants. 9. You spend more money on hair products for your cows than on yourself. 8. You know Pistachio Pie, Snickerdoodle and Frosty are not desserts. 7. You know your show string’s pedigree but not your family tree. 6. You consider the normal place to play cards is the top of a show box. 5. Showing and fitting equipment are on your christmas list each year. 4. You can tell when a cow is going to poop, catch it in a pail and wipe her without stopping your conversation. 3. Your family vacation is attending dairy shows. 2. Getting wet in a washrack at 4 am is normal. 1. As the show season ends, you start counting down the days until the start of next year’s!

This year’s Royal Holstein show can be summed up in one word: outstanding! Last November capped off a very strong show season by Ontario Holstein exhibitors. Each regional show (Ancaster, Maxville, Lindsay, Metcalfe and Orangeville) was up in entries on average by 35 head and this trend carried over to the 2016 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Holstein Show as well. Judge Marc Comtois and his associate Carl Saucier were challenged to sort through and place seven deep, high-quality heifer classes and 9 amazing milking classes, placing a total of 376 entries (+92). The show began with the recently-added Summer Calf class, which saw 19 head take part. Kingsway Soloman Gorgeous placed a strong second and was Best Bred and Owned. Second Ontario and seventh place overall went to Faraway Doorman Missy for Clarkvalley, Neil and Bryan Anderson and Peter Leach; and third Ontario and 10th overall was Mapel Wood Doorman Barbara. The Junior Calf class was headed by Glennholme Doorman Reggae, owned by Glennholme, Signature and Todd Edwards; second went to another Eastern Ontario heifer, Mount Elm Fingers Crossed, owned by Neil and Bryan Anderson; and third was Fraeland Doorman Bonnie owned by Fraeland Farms & Jeff Stephens. In total, 40 heifers were placed. Next came the largest class of the show, the Intermediate Calf class, which saw 55 Intermediate calves squeezed into the Ring of Excellence. Coming to the top was the recent Autumn Opportunity Junior Champion and daughter of the winning 4-Year-Old, Quality Solomon Lust, owned by Quality, Beckridge, Dupasquier and Agriber. Fourth was Cobequid Windbrook Pirouette, owned by Barclay Phoenix and Triple-T Holsteins. In sixth place (third Ontario) was Gendarra Armani Heaven for Gendarra Farms. In the Senior Heifer class the top Ontario entry was fifth-place Vogue Octane Sunstruck for partners Vogue, Silvercap, Cormdale and Blackrock. Mapel Wood Doorman Stella for Mapel Wood Farms was sixth and was T-Triple-T Ent Paparazzi was ninth for owners Velthuis farms Ltd. The 26 entries in the Summer Yearling class saw Nordale McCutchen Pigeon selected as the winning entry for Clarkvalley, Mt Elgin and Peter Leach. In third was Barrvalley Doorman Liz for Silvercap

ColmontHolsteins

STARTING OVER E Entering the barn at Colmont Holsteins is like living a line out of the Christmas carol, Silent Night. Two long rows of capacious cows, tied tail-to-tail, are laying down making milk, appearing not the least bit bothered by a new visitor to the barn, not to mention a noisy camera interrupting their afternoon downtime. In fact, though several larger-than-life fans whirl overhead and a cool Westerly wind is blowing outside, inside, the barn streams with natural light and there is the sense that all is well with the world. Inside, “All is calm and all is bright,” and at this time of year more than ever, the peaceful dairy barn located halfway between Colbeck and Monticello in Dufferin County is a good place to be.

BY ANDREA EMOND

a friend’s father decided to sell his operation in 1971, Joe had the opportunity he had always dreamed of. For the first few years he and Rita rented out the land. Then in 1975, they gutted the barn, purchased a number of Holstein heifers and grade cows and began shipping cream. The following year, Joe quit his job as a welder and focused on growing the dairy operation full-time.

In 1979, the Oosterhofs became members of Holstein Canada and in a nod to the two hamlets anchoring their farm, settled on “Colmont” as their prefix. “It started with us buying a few 4-H calves for the kids and half a dozen registered heifers,” Joe explains. “We always wanted good cows.”

Joe and Rita Oosterhof have been milking cows here for forty years. And good cows they had. By early 2009, after many years of hard A welder by trade, Joe was always interested in farming. When

work and sound breeding decisions, their herd was in its prime. Letters arrived from Holstein Canada informing the Oosterhofs they were close to achieving a Master Breeder Shield. They had recently completed another round of renovations to improve ventilation in the barn and the classifier had just made some of their favourite cows Excellent. Life was good. And then one day, it wasn’t. One night in June, just as they were dozing off, a car came tearing into the driveway honking its horn. Joe jumped out of bed, ran to the window and saw every farmer’s worst nightmare: his barn was on fire. “All I saw was this big glow!” Joe says. “The guy who came in the laneway had already called the fire department and I wasn’t long getting out there either.” But it was still too late. They lost their barn, almost their entire milking herd as well as several calves and close-up heifers housed onsite. The remaining heifers housed in a facility down the road were saved, but in total, almost 60 head were lost in the fire that night. The Oosterhofs also lost three tractors and a lean-to attached to the side of the main barn, but of course all of that could be replaced. It was losing the cows they had worked so hard to develop that hurt the most.

started to come together for a new barn. They can’t say enough about their generous neighbours, who helped out at the time by taking in fresh heifers or loaning them portable milking equipment when their own barns became full. They’re equally grateful to their builders, Lloyd and Lavern Martin, who cleared their schedules and worked closely with them to construct a barn they describe as a joy to work in today. The hay barn went up first, followed by the dairy barn in late summer. By mid-October, less than five months after the fire, the Oosterhofs were milking a new herd of cows in a new barn. It wasn’t 100 per cent complete (bales of hay served as doors for the first few weeks) and it would be a little while until the 54-cow herd they had purchased from Daryl Hostrawser felt like their own, but at least they could call themselves dairy farmers again. Joe and Rita have four adult children (Jamie, David, Teresa and Joanne), but it is their oldest son, Jamie, who works with them on the farm. His main focus is milking and with so much more room than in the old barn, it’s a job he doesn’t mind a bit. “We can milk all these cows in an hour,” he says. Before the fire, the Oosterhofs had talked about building a heifer facility to cut down on time spent driving to the other farm but a new barn was never on their radar. Joe says that if Jamie wasn’t as keen as he is, he and Rita may have decided to call it a day and settle into an early retirement instead. But seeing how well the new barn works, and how happy he and Jamie are working in it each day, they know they made the right decision.

“Sunday was a bad day,” says Joe, “the toughest day.” “We took the cows out oneby-one and buried them.” “You never think that’s going to happen to you,” he adds. “It never crosses your mind that it could be your place.” Part of the renovations the family had completed before the fire included rewiring the entire barn and installing more fans. Though it was never confirmed, the cause of the fire is thought to be due to one of the fans overheating.

Above: Joe and Jamie at the entrance to their barn, which they built in the fall of 2009 after losing it all in a fire. The Oosterhofs have put a lot of focus into developing their new herd and the results speak for themselves.

In an attempt to find the silver lining, Rita says things could have been worse. Their granddaughter, Olivia, who was three at the time, was supposed to be staying with them that night and the thought her witnessing the fire is more than Rita can bear. On top of that, Joe and Rita’s daughter, Teresa, had just been married the week before, an event the family never would have been able to pull off given the immense cleanup efforts required in the aftermath of the fire. The fire started on a Friday night and the fire department didn’t leave until the following evening. Yet there was nothing the Oosterhofs could do, except focus on the cleanup and try to move forward.

The new barn has wide alleys, making feeding a breeze, and open sides, which provides exceptional ventilation. Calves are kept inside in pens and young heifers are housed on pack, never more than seven to a group. “The new barn has definitely made life easier, especially with the heifers,” Jamie says. “We’re able to catch more heats having them all here in one spot now.”

At 80 by 250 ft, with 80 ft of attached manure storage at the far end, the new barn allows for more space and features 50 stalls for milking cows, 10 calf pens, 11 heifer packs and two maternity pens with milk lines. When the Oosterhofs had it built, robots were just up and coming. Still, they don’t regret not putting one in. “Whether it’s a hired hand or a Within a few weeks, they had some of their paperwork back and plans robot, it’s still a system that has to be managed,” Joe says. www.ontario.holstein.ca

BUILDING THEIR FUTURE: These photos show the progress the Oosterhofs have made since they lost their barn to a fire in 2009. They are grateful for their generous neighbours who helped in various ways in the weeks and months following the fire, and can’t say enough about their builders, Lloyd and Lavern Martin. Within five months of the fire, they were back up milking in their new facility. Photos submitted.

The Oosterhofs currently employ one part-time high school student to help with afternoon milking and had part-time help during the summer. Hiring someone full-time would allow Jamie to take more time off, something he hasn’t done much of in the past few years. With the exception of a few trips down South to attend weddings of friends in recent years, and an evening out curling one night a week during the winter, Jamie’s main focus is the farm. It’s been that way since day one. From a very young age it was evident that dairy farming was what Jamie was always meant to do. As Rita recounts, he was always a good little helper in the barn and remembers the day she went out to help a cow calve with Jamie at her side. After a successful calving, Rita moved onto her next job, only to hear Jamie call out to her with excitement, “Another one!” The cow had given birth to twins and it was a two-year-old Jamie who had seen it coming. Joe smiles as he recalls the way his son would watch weather reports when other boys his age were trading hockey cards or spending their allowance. “He would worry if there was rain in the forecast and we didn’t have our hay in,” says Joe. “He was always worried about the farm.” As it turns out, that deep sense of concern has paid off at Colmont. Today, seven-and-ahalf years after the fire, 50 per cent of the herd is Very Good or Excellent. Granted, Jamie says, they don’t have quite as many young Excellent animals as they did before the fire and don’t have any extra animals to sell. “It takes a while to get that back,” he adds. A current classification of 2ME, 1EX, 24VG, 22GP and 5G certainly indicates they are headed in the right direction.

for production in Dufferin County in 2015. Quality milk requires quality feed and the Oosterhofs know how to make it. They farm just over 200 acres of corn, alfalfa and barley, working most of this land on their own. Each year they contract out some custom work such as combining, planting corn and filling bunks, but the rest is all handled by Joe and Jamie. Rita used to help with hay and always fed the calves, but just over a year ago she decided it was time to slow down. She doesn’t go to the barn as often now, which gives her more time to spend with their grandchildren, Olivia (10), Liam (7) and Savannah (6). Olivia and Liam especially love the farm and their tiny footprints stand cemented near the calf pens in the new barn. Olivia enjoys coming up with lists of names for the new calves for her uncle Jamie and Liam can’t wait until he’s old enough to drive tractor. All three grandkids love spending time with Grandma and Grandpa and visit them regularly for sleepovers at their trailer in Mount Forest during the summer. Off the farm Joe has been involved with the fair board, the milk committee and the Dufferin County Holstein Club. He has been a church elder and served as a Gay Lea delegate for over 29 years. Jamie, too, is involved in his local Holstein Club and has helped organize several judging days, banquets and twilight meetings in past years, the latter of which Colmont was proud to host in 2013. In 2015, they also welcomed guests to their farm during the Dufferin Town and Country Farm Tour and the West-Central District Tour, both of which took place within a few months of each other.

Production is equally – if not more - important at Colmont Having been through and Jamie says he won’t something as tragic as the hesitate to cull an Excellent Clockwise from left: Olivia and Liam love helping their uncle Jamie on the farm.

QUALITY HOLSTEINS - PAUL & ARI EKSTEIN 8400 Huntington Rd., Vaughan

11ME, 36EX, 58VG RHA 235-240-234

Quality Holsteins started in the summer of 1980 and since that time have won three Master Breeder shields, have had Grand and Supreme at the Royal Winter Fair and have had three daughters of one cow (Gibson Finsco) named All-Canadian Breeders herd. They milk 72 cows and normally have around 250 head. Prominent cow families at Quality include the Frantisco family, including her daughters and granddaughters, the Astre Felice family, the Carlton Pam family, Rae Lynn Family and they are currently building around some younger cows like Bosdale Gold Luster, Keylas Sid Roaxanna and Leachland Atwood Megabyte. Paul and Ari are very particular on the bulls they choose and focus on High type genomics with good milk numbers and health traits. Perhaps the most unique part of Quality Holsteins is that they have managed to farm in the city for so long and that three of their employees have been there for over 30 years! Paul and Ari plan to continue to try to breed the best cows possible and say that with every breeding, their goal is to breed the next great homebred champion. They know that in the future they will eventually have to move their operation and when that time comes, they plan to relocate about six miles north to their heifer farm.

DANDYLAND HOLSTEINS - THE O’HARA FAMILY 17155 11th Concession, Schomberg

20ME, 12EX 49VG, 17GP RHA 230-232-236

At Dandyland Holsteins, two strong cow families contributed half of the Master Breeder Points for the herd: Dandyland Formation Ledger (VG-87-5*) and Dandyland Cherokee Alisa (VG-85-5*). Many strong descendants are in today’s herd. Ledger had three EX daughters, with the highest scored (Dandyland Leduc Legend (EX-93-5E-3*)) being a farm favourite. Legend won Ontario Holstein’s ‘Heart of the Herd’ Award in 2013 and was a true example of what the O’Hara’s work towards in their breeding program. She exemplified the good udders, feet and legs, balance and consistency found in this cow family. Cherokee Alisa was backed by two VG dams, made over 88,000 kgs of milk and had two EX and 1 VG daughters. These descendants are a true balance of type and production. The O’Hara’s believe in longevity and Dandyland Leader Rockie (EX-91-8E3*15) is a shining example. Now in her 11th lactation, Rockie has accomplished her 150,000 kg certificate and has 3 EX and 2 VG daughters, including Dandyland Gibson Razzle (EX-94-5E), who is owned by Quality Holsteins and was nominated for AllOntario Senior 3-Year-old in 2008. Dandyland strives for top-quality milk, keeping their somatic cell count under the 100,000 level, and each year it is their goal to receive a “Gold’ award for their quality. Dandyland has sold numerous homebred fresh heifers that have gone on to do well for other producers.

Gore Ridge Holsteins is owned by Paul Livingston and Kymberly Knuff. Along with their children, Blake and Laela, and herdsman Steven Gallant they run this family farm. Paul started farming out of high school and formed a partnership with his parents, eventually buying his parents’ shares of the farm. Moving from the city of Brampton to Schomberg in 2015, Paul and Kymberly built a new 120 x 360 ft dairy barn that houses all animals under one roof. They are currently milking 55 cows with a GEA Mlone robot. Cows are housed on a composting pack and fed a TMR of Haylage, Corn silage, high moisture cobmeal and straw with pellets being fed in the robot. Feed is all homegrown from the 500 acres that the farm works. Calves are group housed with a GEA robotic calf feeder. Paul is breeding cows for strong families with an emphasis on robot-ready traits. Good udders with properly placed teats and great mobility are a must. Paul’s dad once housed bulls for Paul Ekstein before they were sold, with the agreement of them being used as herd sires. Quality Combination left the biggest impact on the herd. Gore Ridge Leader Tammy (EX-95) is a descendant of those Quality bulls that were used and went on to be Nominated AllOntario 5-Year-old in 2010, not before leaving VG daughters and granddaughters. The Jerseys in the herd all trace back to the Hostess family of Rexlea Jerseys. Paul is proud to have had the Highest Lifetime Record completed in York County in 2014 on Gore Ridge Outside Lyda.

4ME, 8EX 32VG, 2GP RHA 227-230-226

Located in Simcoe County, Earincliffe Holsteins has been breeding Holsteins for four generations and almost 70 years. Although the milking cows were sold when he was young, Scott always had a passion and love for breeding and raising Holstein cattle. For years he raised heifers and sold them to surrounding dairy herds as replacements. In August 2012, Scott and his family began milking cows at Earincliffe again under the New Entrant Producer program. The Milking herd is housed in a new tie-stall dairy barn built in 2012. There they milk 38 -40 head and calve 60-65 animals per year, selling the excess as fresh replacements. There have been many highlights for the Brethet Family in recent years. Since 2012, Earincliffe has Scored 85 VG- 2-Year-olds, and 18 EX Cows, and has maintained a herd that is 96 per cent VG or EX during that time. Many of those high-scoring cows descend from herd favourite, Rainyridge Jed Dolorita EX-93 10* who produced 21 VG-2-Year-olds and four EX cows, including full sisters, Earincliff Aftershock Dolly and Earincliff Aftershock Darla, both Scored VG-87-2YR. Earincliffe Holsteins was Premier Exhibitor at the 2015 Simcoe County Holstein Show, and won both Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Banners, but the real highlight came later that year when Earincliffe Redliner Sara captured the Junior Champion title at the World Dairy Expo’s Red and White show. Earincliffe added another Premier Exhibitor Banner to their Collection at the 2016 Simcoe County Holstein Show.

Dalton Faris, continued on as Farishome under James Faris and today is owned by Dalton and Alan Faris under the Farisview prefix. J.Dalton, James and Dalton were all Presidents of the York Holstein Club. Dalton served as an Official Judge for Holstein Canada and Alan was the longest serving Secretary for the York Holstein club, serving for over 23 years and almost 30 as Club Treasurer. Farisview cattle have made many trips to Holstein shows of all levels and winners in the early years included cows like Farisview Ned Marg EX, who won the York County Grand Champion four times, Farisview Warden Althea EX, who won the Peterborough Championship twice and Farisview Warden Penny EX-94-USA, who was Grand at the Illinois State Fair.

This two-time Master Breeder Herd was first established in 1935, by L.S. Roy Livingston in Woodbridge and became a registered Holstein herd in 1959 when Gerald Livingston bought the herd from his father. Gerald and his wife Lois milked 45 cows and worked 300 acres, while quickly developing a well-respected Holstein herd known for its balance of high-producing, strong-framed animals that were made to last. A testament to their breeding philosophy was Sunny Maple Barb Warden EX, who was the 1991 Canadian Champion for Milk, Fat and Protein as a 9-Year-old. She would then repeat this feat, setting a Canadian record in 1993 as a milking 10-Year- old. In 1992 Sunny Maple Toni Jet EX, became the first cow to complete a lactation greater than 500 BCA for Fat. There have also been numerous awards for Sunny Maple in the show ring including having 1988 All-Canadian and All-American Summer Yearling, the 2006 All-Canadian Junior Yearling, and having two sisters capture Grand Champion Honours at the Simcoe County Show in 2001 and 2002. The highest honours came in 1988 and 2001 when Sunny Maple received their Master Breeder Shields. In 2001, Gerald and Lois’s son Doug relocated the milking herd to brand new facilities on Hwy 27 near Beeton. Today Sunny Maple milks 65 head and is still breeding great cows that balance strong type and excellent production. Recent highlights include Sunny Maple Goldchip Purple VG-87-2YR, who completes nine generations VG or EX, and Sunny Maple Finalcut Talon EX-91-2E, who completes 11 generations of VG or EX.

In 2011, the Beckett family relocated from the southern part of York Region “leaving the city lights behind” and moved north to Keswick. The new 62 tie-stall barn was built with an emphasis on cow and calf comfort, with the goal of increasing production and efficiency. This included larger tie-stalls and eight box stalls all lined with pasture mats, tunnel/natural ventilation to improve air flow and a monitored security system. In 2016, Beckridge Holsteins received the Top Milk Quality Award for York Region and the York Holstein Breeders Cup Grand Champion. While the majority of the Beckridge herd is homebred, one of their exceptional cow families is Quality FH Liza. Beckridge has also had an exciting opportunity to join a partnership on several prominent show-stoppers including Bosdale Gold Luster, Keylas Sid Roxanna and Leachland Atwood Megabyte. The Becketts look forward to welcoming you to their farm when you attend the 2017 National Holstein Convention!

The main cow family in the herd is the Onthehill Edna Jet family, which 40 per cent of the herd traces back to. This family constantly produces long-lived and profitable cows with many different branches. Recently the breeding program has moved towards polled animals with an emphasis on building cow families. Currently 20 per cent of the herd is polled with animals sired by Doorman, Reginald, Fever and Overtime. Recently the farm has been included in the Rouge Urban National Park, thus protecting the farm and surrounding area from development.

Lockmar Holsteins is a fifth-generation family farm owned by Jim and Carol Lockie, along with their sons, Scott and Andrew. First registering cows with Holstein Canada in 1974, it was a proud achievement to win their first Master Breeder in 2001 and follow it with a second win in 2015. The 75 milking cows are housed in a modern tunnel ventilated tie-stall barn and are fed with a TMR mix with haylage, corn silage, rolled high moisture corn and barley along with dry hay. 800 acres are cropped with corn, soybeans, wheat, barley and alfalfa being grown. The Lockies like cows with lots of capacity, well-attached udders and correct feet and legs. A perfect example of this is the Lily family. Starting with Lockmar Raider Jasmine EX, and her daughter, Lockmar Charles Lily (EX), there have been five generations of Excellent cows. Another notable family that has had a big impact on winning both Master Breeder shields stems from sisters Lockmar Ned Holly (VG-86) and Lockmar Ada Ileen (VG). Lockmar Holsteins is proud to have had Lockmar Fabulous Rennie nominated All-Canadian 4-H Junior calf and Lockmar Sidney Dorothy being named Reserve All-Canadian 4-H Summer Yearling.

STORY BY CAROL MURPHY

100 years of Progress in Perth A

A century ago, 30 Holstein “fanciers” met in Stratford with a common goal. This meeting sparked the creation of what is known today as the Perth District Holstein Breeders. Their objectives were simple: “promote test work and herd improvement, advertise and boost the breed and hold consignment sales.” However, with the number of Excellent cows that have come out of this county since then, as well as the Master Breeder shields and other prestigious awards that have been claimed by its 347 members, this club has gone above and beyond initial expectations evolving into a club that the original founders would be proud of.

the Holstein Friesian Association was granted.

Merchandising cattle, whether locally or internationally, has always been a foundation for Perth County breeders. In the early years, visitors would come by train to visit the farms, which limited buyers only to farms nearby. To resolve this, consignment sales were then held in different areas of the county, which encouraged all producers to improve their cattle. Sales managers were tasked with the job of greeting the buyers at the train station, taking them to the selling farms and assisting in the delivery of purchased animals. Sales agents were also involved in the recruiting of buyers. A portion of the commission would go to the agent and another portion would In the initial years, the club elected David Argobast as their first Club go to the club. President and Adam Park as Secretary, a position he would continue to The first official club sale was organized in 1974 and held at Carson’s hold for 28 years. George Ellacott (grandfather to David Ellacott who in Listowel.

To meet their objectives year-old that had caught their eye, Don replied, “Sure, if you want her in the early days, the club felt there needed to be some consistency in for the sale, take her.” That young cow was Mardonholm Empress record keeping.

“You wanted your top-placing animals in the group, as well as the ones that matched up for uniformity. We would walk them out and line them up, seeing which ones looked the best together.

The Perth club was behind the organization of the Stratford Spring Show in 1973. This gave cows that freshened late fall or winter a chance to show to avoid them being too stale by the time the fall shows came. In 1973, 78 exhibitors from across Ontario showed 272 head.

Sheldon Shane: On Track for Success! THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR SHELDON SHANE, AN ENTHUSIASTIC AND DETERMINED 17-YEAR-OLD FROM LYN, ONTARIO. WITH HIS STRONG WORK ETHIC AND AMBITION TO FURTHER DEVELOP HIS FAMILY FARM, SHELDON HOLDS THE RIGHT KEYS TO A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE.

H

Hanging on tightly to a swing attached to the milk pipeline is one of the first memories Sheldon has of his parents’ (Richard and Susanne Shane) dairy farm, Donnaville Holsteins in Leeds County. To this day, you can still find him inside the 75 head tie-stall barn; however it is more likely that he will be milking cows, feeding calves or planning new breeding strategies. Currently, Donnaville Holsteins holds a classification score of 3 EX, 24 VG and 42 GP. Sheldon is proud of his current classification scores but is always looking for ways to improve the type within the herd. From a young age, he’s had a keen interest in dairy genetics and when he was only 13 years old, his parents encouraged him to become involved with the breeding program on the farm. Sheldon credits Don Aylsworth for mentoring him to identify and select the best sires for their herd. Sires that have high type proofs are very important for Sheldon as he believes these are the bulls that yield daughters who will classify well and last for many years in their herd. Sheldon’s passion for genetics has further developed this year as he is a co-op student for Semex in Kemptville. Each day he has the opportunity to help with the collection of semen from high profile bulls such as Doorman, Saloon, Meridian and Sid. “It is amazing that every morning I can wake up and work with Canada’s top bulls,” says Sheldon with his 4-H calf, Donnaville Snowy Peggys Cove, at the 2016 TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic. Photo: Andrea Emond Sheldon. Since he was 10 years old, Sheldon has been an active 4-H member in Leeds County where he has completed 24 clubs in dairy, beef, plowing and life skills. In 2014 and 2015, Sheldon was the Grand Champion Livestock showperson and in 2016 he was the Reserve Livestock showperson for Leeds County, where he was judged on his ability to show dairy, beef, sheep, goats and rabbits. Additionally, Sheldon captured Reserve Champion Calf with Donnaville Snowy Peggys Cove and Honourable Mention showperson at his Achievement Day last year. He was ecstatic to be chosen to end his 4-H season off by attending the TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic for the fifth year in a row. Attending the Royal has been a dream of Sheldon’s since a young age.

year was extremely special for him as it was the first time in 20 years that his farm exhibited milking cows at their county show (Tri-County Holstein Show). With Sheldon’s keen interest and ambitious nature, his parents agreed to take two cows that he clipped and prepared. Sheldon credits his mom and dad for constantly supporting him in 4-H and showing. “Ever since I was young my parents have been an inspiration to me,” he says. “They always make sure that I have a 4-H calf and that I get to where I need to go.” It is inevitable that everyone notices Sheldon’s passion and the hard work he exhibits in everything that he does. It is thanks to these traits that his neighbour, Joan McNealy, decided that once she sold her dairy operation in 2012, she wanted Sheldon to take over her prefix, North Star Farms. Sheldon was extremely honoured that Joan thought about him and he is now proud to own three Holsteins and one Jersey under the North Star prefix.

“The fact that you go to the city of Toronto with a calf is amazing!” he says, “I feel honoured to have competed with the best Sheldon has many ambitious goals for his future, including going youth from all to McGill University’s MacDonald Campus next fall for the Farm over Canada.” Management and Technology program. Following this, he has aspirations to be a Holstein Canada Classifier before returning to his home farm full-time. It was through 4-H that Sheldon’s humble personality, enthusiasm for the dairy industry, and Sheldon found his goal-driven mindset put him and Donnaville Farms on track for a his passion for successful future. It is because of people like Sheldon we have such a showing dairy strong, exciting and bright future in the dairy industry. cattle. This

TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic A New Venue, A New Schedule, yet Every bit as Spectacular! It took months of hard work, dedication and commitment, but on November 7, hundreds of 4-H members and their calves arrived in Toronto to compete in the 37th annual TD Canadian 4-H Dairy Classic. A total of 358 4-H members from Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia represented their respective counties and provinces during the three-day event held from November 7 – 9 at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Teams arrived on Sunday and Monday to set up their displays, interact with visitors to the Royal and educate young fair-goers about caring for calves and life on a dairy farm. Veteran 4-H members displayed a high level of leadership by assisting the younger first-time members CONFORMATION CHAMPIONS Pictured (l to r): Derek Koppe, TD Canada Trust; Robert Chabot, Holstein Canada; Gerrit Wensink, Semex; Tasha Reynolds; Monica Parnell of Quebec Southeast with throughout the competition.

For the first time ever, this year’s show took place in the Ring of Excellence, a venue which surprised a lot of people and made for an intimate show ring and well-received show. Showmanship Judge John Werry of Loa-De-Mede Farms in Oshawa, ON, and his associate, Stephanie Murphy of Ronbeth Holsteins in Hastings, ON, put 4-H members through the paces allowing them to display their showmanship skills during the heats and finals on November 8. The show kicked off with Matt Lange from South Simcoe singing O Canada. Derek Koppe, Senior Vice President of National Agriculture Services at TD Canada Trust, brought greetings and paid tribute to his late colleague Craig Bremner, a wonderful man who was a passionate supporter of the Classic and 4-H in general. He will be dearly missed. On day two, Conformation Judge Pat Conroy of Angola, Indiana, began placing the many heats and classes of top 4-H Holsteins, Jerseys and other coloured breeds from across the country. On the page that follows, you will find results from both days.

Holstein Canada’s New Herd Enrollment Program Floral Dairy, TILLSONBURG, ON

BY ANGELA HOWARD

FOR AALT AND FLORINA PELLEBOER, FAMILY IS AT THE HEART OF THEIR 200-COW DAIRY HERD. LOCATED IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF OXFORD COUNTY, THIS YOUNG FAMILY IS CONTINUALLY LOOKING TO ENHANCE THEIR FARM AND THEIR ENTHUSIASM FOR DAIRY FARMING IS INFECTIOUS!

O

Originally from The Netherlands, both Aalt and Florina immigrated to Canada with their respective families in 1995 and 2000. Aalt farmed with his family up until 2008 when a new freestall dairy barn with two Lely robots was built to allow him and his brother to move forward with their own operations. Aalt’s brother Gerrit continues to milk 350 cows at the original location and their father enjoys assisting both when needed. The slated, free-stall barn features shavings and bedded mats. This progressive couple has not slowed down, continuing to grow their operation, adding two more A3 robots in recent years, a new heifer and dry cow facility and a new home on the property, allowing the family to move there in 2013. Since that time, they’ve also grown their family and now have three little helpers in the barn: Elise (5), Dries (3) and Thys (1).

Aalt and Florina with their children, Elise (5), Dries (3) and Thys (1). PHOTO: ANGELA HOWARD

The ideal cow for the Pelleboers is a mediumsized animal with great mobility and feet and legs. Correct teat placement and milk persistency is also of great importance. With the slated floor system in his barn, Aalt considers feet and legs to be the most important part of his breeding strategy. Genomics has been a great tool for the herd and Aalt firmly believes in its reliability. Although much of his time is spent on the milking herd, he is quick to point out the important role his wife plays in the operation. Florina is in charge of the raising calves on the farm and is an intrical part of this well-managed herd. From a dairy background herself in the Duizer family, her four brothers still each operate their own dairy, poultry and cash crop farms in Oxford County. She is acutely aware of the necessary good start needed to propel calves and is very pleased with the lack DHI is also a tool used for management on the of vet work needed in their calving facility. farm and is seen as a benefit while making culling descions as it is easier to determine high SCC The Pelleboers are a terrific example of a animals. The current BCA sits at 227-259-231 progressive and enthusiastic team in our dairy with a 10,265 kg average, which Aalt hopes to industry. Their emphasis on family is inspiring increase to 11,000 kg in the future. Classification and it is their hope that their passion for dairy is not yet used as Aalt was hoping to get the herd farming will motivate their children to follow in to 75 per cent purity before classifying, but he this way of life if they are interested. “In order to may start sooner with the onset of proAction inspire passion, you must truly feel it and show and seeing the benefit of identifying functional it yourself,” Florina says. The Pelleboers are a testament to this statement and a privilege to type animals. work with! After discussing the possibility of registering their herd at an informal meeting, I was fortunate to work with the Pelleboers to register their entire herd of around 400 head. The decision to go from a grade herd to purebred was fueled by Aalt’s interest in genetics and a desire to become more in tune with bulls that could improve each cow. Since his initial decision to register, Aalt’s already keen interest has magnified! As soon as the first registrations were complete, Aalt went online to CDN to view the list and look into the herd’s lineage. Florina also has noticed a change in the way that more informed breeding decisions are made. Aalt now spends time analyzing bull proofs and although a registered bull is still kept on farm, natural services are kept to a minimum and used solely for clean-up purposes.

John & Lee Gillies Brandon and Brock Gillies

Farm: Valleyriver Farms Ltd. Herd Size: 100 Milking Operation Type: 4-Row Free-stall, Double-6 Parlour Location: Bognor, Ontario

me on the farm while my daughter, Brittany, works off the farm as an We milked grade Holsteins up until 1972 and decided to start into Esthetician. purebreds after that. I always envied the great breeders of the time and 7. If you could improve one thing in your herd/operation, what would it be? was amazed by the great cows people took down to the Royal. It made We’d like to have a better heifer barn. Right now the heifers are currently me realize how far away I was from that - we weren’t even on test at the housed in two old bank barns. It works fine, but it’s not maybe the most time! Though it seemed like an impossible task back then, we have had convenient. You work with what you’ve got! several Red & Whites do well for us in the show circuit. We had our first red heifer born on the farm in 1985 - Valleyriver T T Paprika-Red - and 8. If you could have ANY cow standing in your barn, who would it be and why? never looked back! In 2000 we took six or seven Redman calves down Blondin Redman Seisme. She has the best udder of any cow I’ve ever to World Dairy Expo and had a lot of interest in them. We took a tank seen, Black & White or Red & White. They just don’t come any better! of semen down too and sold almost all of it, which was enough to pay for our trip! 9. What is one thing you would tell a young farmer starting out that you wish

1. What is your family’s history with Holsteins?

2. What are your breeding goals?

We aim to breed cows that will be profitable for anyone in the business. I think the thing that’s lacking in the breed right now is longevity. The dairy business in Ontario has become more commercial and a lot of 2-Year-Olds don’t get the chance to be mature cows. Today we aim to breed long-lasting cows that will breed on.

3. What genetic tools are most important in your breeding program?

you had been told?

Listen to people who have been successful in the business. And have patience because breeding cows doesn’t always work in your favour. Also, make sure you want to do it before you start! You have to enjoy it because there’s lots of other jobs that pay overtime. In dairy farming there’s more to gain but also more to lose.

10. How do you use genomic information in your herd and what are your thoughts on the future of genomics?

Bull proofs remain the basis of our sire selection. We also look for cow Genomics is a tool like Index was in earlier years. We would not recommend basing a breeding program solely on genomics. You can’t families that breed true. just go by numbers; you have to have an idea what bull will work best 4. Describe the ultimate/ideal cow for your operation. with what cow. Some of the greatest cows have come from instinct. I We like a cow that is mobile, has a low somatic cell count and a quality always say, “the proof is on the hoof”. udder. We also value good conformation and dairy strength. I truly believe it’s better to buy a cow who’s calved at least once with a healthy 11. How many cows do you flush each year? How do you market your embryos udder than a nice looking heifer. The cow will have a milk record and will that are for sale? already be scored and you have a better sense that everything is in place. We flush our top two or three cows each year but don’t do any

marketing. Instead we put them into our heifers or the lower end of 5. What cow in your barn is currently the “Heart of the Herd”? the herd. We’ve had great luck getting problem breeders pregnant Our current favourite is Wridale Valleyriver Gin, a Five-Year-Old with embryos. Shottle daughter backed by two Excellent and one Very Good dams. We bought her as an embryo from Harold and Todd Wright and she’s just a great cow! At close to 62 inches tall, she’s still very mobile and gets along just fine. She milks so much, she’s an easy breeder and makes lots of embryos. She does a lot of things right!

6. What are you most proud of in your herd/operation?

We are very proud of our Red and White cows! We’re proud to have bred the bulls Valleyriver Ruben Redman and Valleyriver Joyboy. Proving Redman with my friend Larry Bennett was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. People have had great success with his daughters.We’re proud of how far we’ve come, the land assets we’ve been able to build and the fact that we grow all of our own feed on our 600 acres. Being named Premier Breeder at the first Royal Red & White Show and winning a Master Breeder Shield in 2001 come to the top of the list too, as does working alongside my family every day.

12. Being in the breeding business, what traits do you find sell the best? What trait do you value most? Pretty heifers sell, and for us, type will always outsell anything else. Even the commercial guys still like a pretty cow. I don’t think that will ever change. 13. Which bulls do you feel has had the most impact on your herd over the years and today? Redman has had the most impact because we had so many! Today we use a lot of proven bulls and young red sires. 14. What are the management practices in place on your farm that you feel contribute the most to the success of your operation? Consistent, quality feed given on a daily basis is key. Having a good hooftrimmer and using a footbath is also important! www.ontario.holstein.ca

Val-Bisson Doorman is quickly establishing himself as the heir apparent to Braedale Goldwyn. Doorman daughters dominated the heifer and young cow classes at the 2016 World Dairy Expo. Comestar Lamadona Doorman (VG-89-2YR-CAN), developed by Jamie Howard of Howard-View Holsteins was 1st Junior 3-Yr-Old & locally bred Walkerbrae Doorman Locket was 3rd in the class, with the two being separated by the locally bred Goldwyn daughter Craigcrest Rubies Rachelle. Use Doorman to produce daughters with high component yields, strong health traits, and exceptional type. He delivers profitable cows built to last!
