The American Jersey Cattle Association promotes the use of authentic and unaltered photographic images of Jersey animals, and disapproves of the use of any photographic images that alter the body of the Jersey animal. The American Jersey Cattle Association therefore requests that all photographic images of Jersey animals submitted for publication in the Jersey Journal contain no alterations to the body of the animal. Despite its best efforts to ensure that only unaltered photographs of Jersey animals are used in this publication, the American Jersey Cattle Association cannot guarantee that every photographic image of a Jersey animal is authentic and unaltered.

Jersey Breeders Feature Story for MILK The July/August 2022 Farm Journal’s MILK magazine features two dairy farmers who find their way back home after working off the farm. Located in Hilmar, Calif., Wickstrom Jersey Farm Inc. was established in 1972, by the late Duane Wickstrom. From 500 cattle in the late 1980s to around 1,800 in 2010, the herd continued to grow with the help of his sons, Scott and Mike. Wickstrom continued to work on efficiency within the farm and building new areas for maternity and dry cows. Wickstrom now has 2,500 cows. Along Page 14

with their herd expansion, they started another dairy in 2021, Pinnacle Dairy, where they house 1,200 Jerseys. Brent’s parents, Mike and Margaret, encouraged him to try new things outside of the farm which he is thankful for. Brent attended school and gained experiences outside off the farm before returning back to Wickstrom Dairy Inc. When he assumed management, he made several changes and worked on creating more efficiency. Working with family is hard and it is a team effort to efficiently get things done. In the story Brent discusses how he was able to experience life off the farm before returning home and encourages everyone to do so. He hopes more people follow their dreams and continue to make the industry even better. In Bernville, Pa., Jaylene Lesher and her family own Way-Har Farms LLC. Over the years, this farm grew, just as the family interest did. In 2015, the family went from 100-250 head, that included Holsteins and Jerseys. Along with owning a dairy, the family owns and operates Way-Har Farm Market, where customers can get processed and packaged fresh milk, baked goods, and more. Jaylene always wanted to be apart of the farm, which pursued her to get an animal science degree from Penn State. She wanted to gain experiences outside of the farm during her college years and took every opportunity she came across. She was on the dairy judging team, dairy challenge, and even interned at RosyLane Holsteins and then Bell and Evans Chickens where she was in processing. After graduating college, she landed a job with Kings-Ransom Farm LLC in New York as their calf manager, overseeing around 200 calves. After returning home to the farm, Jaylene manages Way-Har Farm as the herd manager. She oversees herd health, reproduction management, youngstock, and employee training. Before getting to that point, Jaylene made a lot of changes throughout the dairy. She encourages all young farmers to keep connections and use your resources.

Reiman-Duden Honored by Minnesota Farmfest Fourth-generation dairy farmer, Kristin Reiman-Duden of Princeton, Minn., has been named 2022 Woman of the Year by Farmfest. She was honored at Farmfest Women in Ag Event on August 4. According to Minnesota Farmfest, “The FarmReiman-Duden fest Woman Farmer of the Year Award honors the hard-working female farmers all across Minnesota who selflessly give their time to growing the crops and raising the livestock needed to feed the world.” She and her husband, Thomas, own 40 Registered Jerseys and 320 acres of land. Reiman-Duden also shows homebred dairy cattle in the Minnesota showring. The couple also sells hay, which accounts for a third of their farm income, and raise corn and oats to feed the cows. There are only 15 dairy farms in their county and they work hard to ensure youth have the opportunity to showcase cattle if interested. She mentions that it is wonderful to see youth who aren’t acclimated to agriculture get the opportunity to work with the cattle. Reiman-Duden loves giving back to the community and helping youth grow in the dairy industry. She has been a mentor to youth and encouraging them to participate in National Jersey Youth Development Programs. Reiman-Duden graduated from University of Minnesota with a bachelor in agriculture education-leadership, training, and development and a minor in animal sciences. After returning home from college, she purchased the family farm. She is also involved deeply with agriculture and focuses on mental health within the industry. Reiman-Duden was proud to stand beside other wonderful women while accepting the award including Karen Kasper another Minnesota Jersey breeder. Reiman-Duden encourages everyone to continue sharing their story. JERSEY JOURNAL

The Missing 39 Percent: Is it a Concern? The dairy industry is devoting considerable resources to updating or reforming the federal milk marketing orders (FMMOs). While many aspects of the orders are being scrutinized, the two facets perceived to have the greatest impact are the Class I price formula and make allowances. However, a third important issue is receiving virtually no attention. In 2021 only 61% of U.S. production was pooled in the federal orders, meaning 39% of production was marketed outside the regulated system. Why is this important? First, it’s important to understand why some milk is not pooled. Not all areas of the U.S. are within the federal order system, most notably Idaho and Utah, and Idaho is the number #3 state for milk production. However, the majority of the non-pooled milk is Class III or IV produced within the federal order marketing areas. While Class I milk is required to be pooled, manufacturing milk has the option to be pooled. From the beginning federal order pricing was designed to have Class I be the highest priced milk, which combined with the high volume of Class I sales, would entice Class III and IV to be pooled to share in the Class I revenue. However, milk market dynamics have changed dramatically in recent years. Fluid milk sales continue to decline and now represent less than 20% of total production. Therefore, Class I contributes less revenue to the orders’ statistical uniform prices than previously. Furthermore, increased demand for manufactured products, including exports, can increase Class III and IV prices to the point that in many months one will exceed an order’s statistical uniform price. Pooling Class III or IV milk when its price is higher than an order’s statistical uniform price would require the III or IV handler to share their revenue with the other pooled handlers. By not pooling their milk handlers can retain the high-value revenue. Why is this a concern? Not pooling high-value manufacturing milk lowers the orders’ Producer Price Differentials (PPD), and thereby the orders’ statistical uniform prices and in turn, prices paid to producers. What can be done? There are three options. 1. Entice manufacturing milk to be pooled by raising Class I revenues. It is

important to note that revenues are a function of both price and volume. Current discussions focus on modifying and increasing the Class I price. However, the concern of depooled Class III and IV milk cannot be addressed through the Class I price. Today’s lower Class I volumes mute the impact the Class I price will have on an order’s statistical uniform price making it more likely that the Class III or IV price will exceed the statistical uniform price. 2. Each order has its own pooling rules, and most restrict how Class III and IV milk can rejoin the pool after it’s left the pool. Making it harder for manufacturing milk to be re-pooled would increase the risk of leaving the pool. Tighter pooling standards would discourage the practice of Class III or IV toggling out of the pool when it would be required to pay into the order and toggling back into the pool when it could draw from the order. Keeping manufacturing milk pooled would also support the two original premises of creating federal orders, establishing minimum prices and pooling revenues. However, the reality is that with tighter pooling standards handlers may opt to simply keep manufacturing milk out of the federal order pools permanently rather than pooling their milk to share in ever-declining Class I revenues. 3. Ignore the milk that isn’t pooled and is, therefore, unregulated. Choosing this option is, by default, choosing for an increasingly unregulated milk market with no transition plan in place. As Class I sales continue to decline and overall production continues to increase, the percentage of milk marketed outside the federal orders will increase. If the industry chooses to go down this path a transition plan is needed to address the myriad of services the federal orders provide to producers and handlers of pooled milk beyond just pricing. These include market data, audits, and payment terms and conditions. As you attend industry functions this fall and federal order issues are discussed, be sure to ask if the missing 39% is a concern, and if so, what is being proposed to address that concern.

Maintaining Her Advantage as the Industry’s Best Address of Jonathan Merriam, President to the 154 th Annual Meeting of the American Jersey Cattle Association, June 25, 2022, Portland, Ore.

L

et us start today by expressing appreciation to the Oregon Jersey breeders for hosting the convention this year and welcoming us to their beautiful state. The Jersey cow is why we have gathered for this convention. We h av e t h e m o s t e f f i c i e n t , environmentally friendly cow that also happens to produce the most nutrientpacked product of all dairy breeds. We must continue to utilize these benefits while working to advance her genetics to a higher level. We must maintain her advantages of higher components, better reproduction, and more efficient conversion of feed to milk. To do this, we must continue to improve her genetics and not just rely on her current benefits. While we increase overall production, we need to also increase component percentages and improve reproductive efficiency. This is what has set the Jersey above the rest and will continue to set her above the rest if we continue to move forward improving her genetics. As an association, we must research and gather information to keep the Jersey cow at the forefront of sought-after dairy genetics. We are currently supporting research by updating the sustainability study to clarify the environmental impact advantage of the Jersey cow. We are also supporting research to verify which

traits are most closely related to lifetime profitability of the Jersey cow. The results of these research projects will help the Jersey breed to maintain her advantage as the best dairy cow for efficient, nutrientrich milk production. I challenge the AJCA and breeders to continue to emphasize these benefits and improve the Jersey cow. I would like to finish by expressing my gratitude for the opportunity to serve as president of the association for the past four years. I would also like to thank the staff

for their continued dedication to the association, its membership, and the Jersey cow. Finally, I would like to thank the breeders for their support and dedication to the cow that we all love and who is responsible for bringing us together at events like this. Thank you again for your participation in the annual meetings this week, your attendance in today’s meeting, and your dedication to the Jersey cow.

ADDRESS OF THE NAJ PRESIDENT

The Jersey—Continues to Adapt to Market Prices Address of John Kokoski, NAJ President to the 64th Annual Meeting of National All-Jersey Inc., June 24, 2022, Portland, Ore.

G

ood morning and welcome to Portland, Ore.! As our meetings take place this year, once again, we find ourselves in a totally different milk market scenario. Milk prices across the board have greatly improved over the last couple of months to the point where some records may have been surpassed and more have been nearly broken industrywide. As for our Jersey milk, components have been higher than ever before and yet the market still wants more. You would think that our financial troubles in milk production would be over, but unfortunately, not so. As milk prices have risen so have the inputs and costs of production. Fuel, fee and labor—if you can get it—are just a few. Seed, fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides have doubled and in some cases, availability in some areas has been a concern as well. All of these factors keep our feet to the fire to continue to be efficient in every step of our production decisions. Thank God we still have a cow that has been a pioneer in adapting to market prices and changes, and still gives us an edge no matter what those challenges are. Where we have market demands for value-added products like cheese and ice cream, Jersey components are the answer. Jerseys not only answer the call with solids non-fat that appeal to discerning milk

drinkers, it’s reputation for producing A2 milk will keep Jerseys relevant to the everchanging market and consumer buying trends. Besides management and marketing issues on the farm, NAJ still has issues to work on: component pricing in orders in the southeast, more marketing of A2 milk, and I think the whole industry needs to work together on getting the alternative nut and soy products out of the dairy aisle. Regarding the marketing of Jersey cattle, the demand should improve along with

prices. I attend several weekly dairy and beef auctions and have seen prices for cows and bred heifers improve. Our example is 6-8 months ago fresh cows milking 80100 pounds were only bringing $1,400$1,600 and last week they were $2,000$2,500. Three quartered and blemished uddered cows that were going to beef were commanding $1,600-$1,800. The future can still look bright, we just have to trust our cow and her ability to continue improving and adapting to market changes.”

REPORT OF NAJ GENERAL MANAGER

Historical Firsts and Prospective Changes for Milk Prices Excerpts from the report of Erick Metzger, General Manager National All-Jersey Inc. (NAJ) at the 64th Annual Meeting of the organization on June 24, 2022, in Portland, Ore.

A

lot has happened in the world of milk prices since we gathered last year in Iowa for the annual meeting. So how did we get here, where are we headed and what opportunities exist for NAJ to promote the interests of Jersey producers?

Many producers are also prevented from expanding due to lingering production quotas and base/excess plans invoked with the pandemic. An estimated 50% of production is currently subject to buyer-imposed limits from processors. Like producers, manufacturers are often prohibited from expanding or operating at capacity due to a lack of truckers and haulers, a limited work force, and surging costs of additions and new equipment. The strong milk price has also been bolstered by a strong export market, with all products setting records for value and near records for volume over the past year. This is due in part to lower production in the country’s three major competitors too. In Europe, which produces 50% more milk than the U.S., production is down 1.5%.

inventory during the first three quarters. When inventories are down now, prices are likely to remain elevated. Another blow for milk prices could be the narrowing, or disappearing, U.S. price advantage for exports. In six of the last seven auctions, the overall price index of the Global Dairy Trade, the leading international auction, fell.

or the past six-and-a-half decades, the National Heifer Sale has served two purposes: fund national Jersey youth programs and bring buyer and seller together on contemporary, cutting-edge genetics. Each of the past four years, the venue has set a record for series high average. Though a new record was not established this year, the premier sale served its purpose in grand style, auctioning 27 lots for an average of $7,537.04 and generating $20,350 for youth programs. The virtual sale was conducted on June 25, 2022, in conjunction with the annual meetings of the national Jersey organizations in Portland, Ore. This year, the sale was hosted by Forest Glen Jerseys of Dayton, Ore., at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville and managed by Jersey Marketing Service (JMS). Jersey breeders attending the event socialized with their peers, enjoyed dinner before the sale, and watched pre-recorded videos of consignments on a big screen. The ring backdrop for auctioneer Chris Hill and JMS Manager Greg Lavan was the Spruce Goose. The largest wooden airplane ever built flew just once, on November 2, 1947, in Long Beach, Calif. Jersey breeders who were unable to attend watched the sale live online and placed bids through CowBuyer. Page 22

$12,750 Raised for Jersey Youth Academy

The permanent fund for Jersey Youth Academy gained $12,750 from the 11th Cow Pie Bingo, held June 25, 2022, during the annual meetings of the American Jersey Cattle Association and National All-Jersey Inc., in Portland, Ore. The heifer given for this year’s fundraiser was JX Forest Glen Spiral Huxley {5}, donated by Forest Glen Jerseys and the Bansen Family, Dayton, Ore. During the week, squares, totaling $5,230, were sold for chances to win the heifer in Oregon. Endres Jazzy Jerseys, Lodi, Wis., was the winner of the bingo contest. They quickly made the decision to donate “Huxley {5}” back and sell her at the National Heifer Sale to raise more funds for Jersey Youth Academy. She was the first lot offered at the 64th National Heifer Sale. Bidding quickly escalated and it became clear a group of California Jersey breeders were on a mission to support Academy with their generosity. Three times the bidding reached $2,000 and each time the winning bidder said, “Sell her again.” Placing those three winning bids were Todd Stroup, Hilmar, Wickstrom Bros., Hilmar, and Cornell Kasbergen of Tulare.

NMPF members may also make their own recommendations. Edge, a cooperative in the upper Midwest that ranks third for milk volume, and Select Milk Producers Inc., which markets milk across several Orders and ranks sixth for milk volume, are expected to weigh in. The issue of updating make allowances is exacerbated by a voluntary cost analysis survey of processors. Just 10 of the 26 cheese plants that provide weekly price data participated and results yielded little insight. The five plants with the lowest make allowances averaged $0.145 per hundredweight. The five high-cost plants averaged $0.379. The current make allowance is $0.20. A solution would be enabling legislation in the 2023 Farm Bill requiring participation by plants that provide weekly price information. But this route means data would not be available well into 2025. Clearly a solution needs to be presented in the interim. Both NMPF and IDFA are working on solutions. When the formula for Class I milk was changed from “higher of ” Class III or Class IV to “average of Class III and Class IV plus $0.74 per hundredweight” in the 2018 Farm Bill, both NMPF and IDFA agreed it to be the best course of action. Post pandemic, there have been more downsides than upsides with the change. IDFA wants to keep the “average of ” plus an adjuster as it greatly aids hedging strategies which are critically important for new entrants with high-value Class I products such as coffee shops. This can be difficult if the Class I price is based on the “higher of ” concept. NMPF is considering two options: return

to the “higher of ” or retain the “average of ” and update the adjuster annually. If you have questions about any of these issues or want to touch base, we are just a phone call, email, or text away. As always, we appreciate and value your support of National All-Jersey Inc.

File Your Professional Cow Photos with Jersey Journal What do pictures of your Jerseys say about your herd? Nothing if the Jersey Journal doesn’t have a copy of the picture on file. Now that show season is in full swing, the Jersey Journal reminds breeders that pictures of any class winners, as well as second place if that animal went on to place as a champion, will be published with respective show reports, provided that a photographic print is sent to the office. Photographers do not automatically send your pictures to the Jersey Journal office. When picturing your animals, please request that a digital file be sent to the Jersey Journal. While you will incur the cost of this picture, the benefits will outweigh the cost in the long run. For example, if you decide to advertise that animal and the photograph is not on file, we will have to order it from the photographer. This is more expensive than AUGUST 2022

ordering a print for the Journal files at the time the pictures are first made. Please note, in following copyright laws, the Jersey Journal must have a photographic print from the photographer in the office to use it for publication. Or if you have received a release from the photographer to send digital copies on to

publications, those will also be accepted. A scanned reprint from a third party will not be accepted. Make the most of your investment in herd promotion by getting your animals professionally pictured. Remember to ask your photographer to send an additional copy to the Jersey Journal.

Janice and Benny Rector of Dalhart, Texas, were the bidders to beat throughout the entire night. Their first purchase of the night was a rare and stunning piece from artist Lowell Davis.

Later on, Janice and Benny battled it out again to buy a set of four vintage Borden’s Elsie the Cow drinking glasses.

Proposals Sought For Jersey Cattle and Product Research

maxwell@tourmyfarm.com

rockbottomdairy@yahoo.com

highlandfarmsdairy@gmail.com

The AJCC Research Foundation has issued a request for research proposals to be funded in 2023 addressing significant issues for the Jersey breed and Jersey milk producers. Current priorities for research funding are: • Nutrition of high-producing Jerseys, particularly practical feeding methods to maximize production of valuable milk components; • Factors affecting management of Jersey calves; • Factors affecting semen production of Jersey bulls; • Factors affecting yield and/or quality of products manufactured from Jersey milk; • Factors affecting economic impact of Jerseys: efficiencies, net income, longevity, and lifetime profit; • Optimizing the genetic basis for improving animal health and/or enhancing product quality; • Enhancing environmental impact associated with Jerseys; • New technologies for safe and sustainable food production from Jersey cattle; and • Feasibility of adding value and increasing consumer acceptance of Jersey-derived products through enhanced product quality and branding. Application deadline is December 1, 2022. The Research Advisory Committee of the American Jersey Cattle Association will evaluate the proposals, then forward its recommendations to the AJCA Board of Directors, which will award funds at its meeting in March 2023. Submissions are evaluated for (a) merit (e.g., potential to advance practical knowledge, creative approach to the problem); (b) competence (i.e., high probability of successful completion within the proposed time frame); and (c) relevance (e.g., problem derived from one of the areas of research priority). Since 1988, the Foundation has awarded more than $900,000 in seed money for selected projects. Detailed information about the Competitive Grants Program can be found on the USJersey web site (permalink http:// bit.do/JerseyRFP) or requested from the American Jersey Cattle Association office at 614/861-3636.

In Memoriam Robert James Fleming Robert “Bob” James Fleming, Delaware, Ohio, 81, passed away peacefully on June 23, 2022, at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was born on April 9, 1941, in Delaware to the late James Nelson and Helen (Sheets) Fleming. He graduated from Elm Valley High School and then earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural science from the Ohio State University (OSU). Showing a Jersey calf at the age of nine was the beginning of his lifelong involvement in the dairy and agriculture industries. He developed leadership skills through FFA and 4-H. He was elected state reporter for the former and spoke before President John F. Kennedy during a citizenship trip to Washington D.C. for the latter. Bob was also president of Alpha Zeta fraternity for the 1961-62 school year. While at OSU, he joined the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps as an officer in the U.S. Army, where he was named “best recruit” among 6,000 conscripts. He earned rank of captain and then served in the Army Reserve. During his service, he was an arms instructor at Fort Knox. Upon graduation, Bob became the county 4-H agent for Madison County, initiating the counselor-in-training (CIT) program widely used today. He eventually took over and developed the family farm, Ideal Jersey Farm, in Delaware. During the 1970s and 1980s, cattle were exported to Brazil, Japan and six other countries. Bob was a member of the American Jersey Cattle Association and the Ohio Jersey Breeders Association, which he served as director. After a picnic hosted by the Ohio Jersey club, he asked his future bride, Mary Thurston, out for a first date. A month later, standing beside a manure spreader

next to the pasture fence, he proposed. Having grown up on a dairy farm too, Mary was not dissuaded by the location and accepted the proposal. Bob judged many county fairs over the years and was active with the Delaware County Farm Bureau. Among his ideas was an agriculture education program at the Delaware County Fair. In retirement, he delivered the Columbus Dispatch newspaper in Delaware County. He was named Dispatch Carrier of the Year in 2008. He served Ohio and Michigan as a census enumerator with the U.S. census bureau in 2010. He was a longtime, faithful member of Kilbourne United Methodist Church, where he served on numerous committees. Bob enjoyed the company of fellow train enthusiasts as a member of the Delaware County Model Railroaders. He also enjoyed watching his grandsons show at the Delaware and Ashtabula County Fairs and play baseball. His favorite gathering place was his front porch, where he spent time with family and friends and watched the corn grow. In addition to his wife of 44 years, Mary, he is survived by four children, Marie (Chris) Bradek, Jefferson, Ohio, Melissa Fleming, New York City, N.Y., Michael Fleming, Columbus, Ohio, and Mark (Samantha) Fleming, Delaware; six grandsons; two great-grandsons; a brother, William (Frank Kuesel) Fleming, Galena, Ohio; sisters-in-law Nancy Fleming, Delaware, Linda (Keith) Wolstenholme, Collegeville, Pa., Ann (Bill) Rammelsberg, Delaware, Karen Wooster, Taylors, S.C., and Kathy (Scott) Bauder; brother-in-law John Thurston III, Delaware; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by a brother, Richard. Memorials may be made to the Ohio 4-H Camp, Ohio FFA Foundation, or the Kilbourne United Methodist Church.

He competed in cutter horse arenas and was widely known for breeding foundation quality Quarter horses. He was also a partner in the family-owned Trey Deuce and Texas Twist disc golf course. After the dairy herd was sold, he worked for the American Jersey Cattle Association as an area representative for Louisiana and Texas. He was also a familiar face to Jersey breeders across the country as a member of the crew that helped Jersey Marketing Service manage sales. For the past 18 years, he was employed at Priefert Manufacturing, which makes farm, ranch, and rodeo equipment. Waymon was a charter member of the Franklin County (Texas) Farm Bureau and belonged to the Northeast Texas Goat Raisers Association.
