The Pagenkopf family is excited to host a barn meeting, and hopes that Holstein breeders will come out for a great fellowship opportunity.

They moved into a brand new special needs barn in December, their tie-stall barn was remodeled in 2008, and their calf barn is just six years old. Kurt and Sarah try to emphasize that with excellent cow comfort, longevity and productivity will provide financial compensation.

Harmony-Ho Dairy, Ralph & Sharon Bredl, Stratford Harmony-Ho Dairy has been home to Ralph and Sharon Bredl since the purchase of the 60-cow dairy in 1989. They constructed their first free stall barn and milking parlor in 1994, and by 1999, a new parlor and free stall addition were built to accommodate the herd’s current size of 415 milking animals. Harmony-Ho has become a very diverse operation, and in 2000, the Bredls formed a joint herd sire marketing enterprise with Badger Holsteins of Unity, Wis. They sell 80 breeding age bulls annually. In 2004, their daughter Martine joined the farm after graduating from UW-River Falls. In 2007, Harmony Specialty Dairy Foods was established with the purchase of a local cheese plant, and the Bredls began producing cheese from the Harmony-Ho milk supply. Harmony Specialty Dairy Foods now produces several varieties of cheese, all of which will be available for sampling during their barn meeting.

The Bredl family will be showcasing Genex Genesis cows. Genesis refers to a nucleus of herds utilizing breeding strategies and genetic or reproductive technologies to produce elite, highly profitable males and females resulting from embryo purchases, designated by the CRI suffix, combined with Genex owned females identified with the co-op prefix. In 1999, Harmony-Ho began housing the elite females to provide an unbiased environment. The Bredl’s 415 milk cows have a rolling herd average at 29,369M with 3.89 1144F and 3.05 894P. Their herd pregnancy rate is 22%, with a voluntary waiting period of 75 days. The Bredls breeding program focuses on TPI, in addition to udder and feet and leg composite. Ralph and Sharon own and operate over 450 tillable acres, and purchase any additional feed needed. Harmony-Ho is excited to host a 2011 barn meeting, and their featured speaker will be Matthew Dorshorst, DVM.

Welsh-Edge HolsteinsRalph & Sheila Petersheim Family, Viroqua The Petersheim family at Welsh-Edge Holsteins has been a family run operation since Ralph and Sheila married in 1985. Their family includes six children and a son-in-law, Heather and Mike Metzler, Derek, Daniel, Heidi, David, and Hope. All children are involved part-time in the operation. The Petersheims moved to their current location in southwest Wisconsin in 1995. Before purchasing their Vernon County farm, they rented Ralph’s home farm in Pennsylvania, which was nestled along the Welsh Mountain (where the farm’s prefix was born). They sold their herd before moving to Wisconsin, and purchased the grade herd that was on the farm. Ralph and Sheila did, however, bring a load of heifers and calves as well as Welsh-Edge Leadman Ginger. Welsh-Edge has become a 100% Registered herd once again since their relocation. Welsh-Edge is home to 90 milking females in a remodeled 70-cow sand bedded tie stall barn. The herd’s rolling herd average is right at 21,000 pounds milk, with 3.7%F and 3.0%P. The BAA is 108%, with 16 Excellent, 32 Very Good and 29 Good Plus cows. The Petersheims pasture the milking herd extensively during the growing season. Their desire is to remain profitable but not necessarily to break records. Ralph and Sheila accomplish remain profitable by grazing and feeding high forage diets, which translates into healthy, low maintenance, cows with great longevity.

Approximately 70% of the cows that leave Welsh-Edge are sold for dairy purposes, which greatly enhance the farm’s bottom line. Ralph and Sheila have invested in several cow families over the years, including DRA-August, Bic Betty, Blackrose, and Rudolph Amy. While they enjoy working with these families and their offspring, their favorites remain in their Ginger family. This family continues to easily transmit true dairy strength and high scoring cows. The Petersheims are milking daughters of Durham Gingerheart, EX-92 3E, by Astronomical (EX-91), Roy (EX-92, EX-90, VG-86, and GP-80 at 2 years, with none lower), Stormin Norman (VG-86, VG-85, VG-85) Stormatic (VG-85), and an exciting Plaid that needs to see a classifier. They have consigned four calves to sales out of Durham Ginger by four different sires, and three of them are EX for their new owners. The fourth is VG-88 at two years of age. This family was also responsible for Petersheim’s Premier Breeder & Exhibitor banners at the District 2 Holstein Show last year. The Petersheim family is greatly looking forward to hosting the Spring Barn Meeting and the time they can spend meeting other Holstein breeders.

Barn Meeting Featured Speakers Dr. Chris Booth is a food animal veterinarian and partner at Dairy Doctors Veterinary Services located in Plymouth. He provides medical, surgical, and production medicine services to clients ranging from 50-3000 cows, while helping them maximize animal health, production and profitability. Dr. Booth frequently provides training sessions for clients in the areas of transition cow care, milk quality, and reproduction management.

Dr. Matthew Dorshorst is a 2005 graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison Veterinary School. Matthew and his father Charles Dorshorst operate a veterinary clinic in central Wisconsin as well as the farm. Matthew specializes in embryo transfer and reproductive ultrasound as well as other advanced reproductive procedures, including in-vitro fertilization. His topics for the barn meetings will include a brief summary of current reproduction protocols and the use of ultrasound in herd health reproduction programs.

Tom and Jerry tend to use aAa mating on their herd, with a focus on high type cattle that live a long time and make a lot of daughters. They typically only use genomic bulls that are high on sire lists and hail from outstanding cow families. The Jens family is content with the size of their herd, and has no immediate plans for expansion. They continue to purchase individuals every now and again, and market their genetics to support other sales and breeders. Integrity is especially important to Tom and Jerry – they market the best to promote their individuals and anticipate a high level of performance in other herds. The Jens’ brothers hope to continue building on their foundation blocks and breeding multiple generations of MissionBell Excellent individuals for years to come.

2010 Outstanding Holstein Girl & Boy Outstanding Holstein Girl - Danae Bauer

Outstanding Holstein Boy - Jacob Brey

I was completely shocked when I heard my name announced as the Outstanding Holstein Girl at the 2011 Junior Holstein Convention. I am honored to be chosen amongst a list of very deserving candidates and distinguished past recipients. It is literally a dream come true for a girl who loves her Holsteins as much as I do and has enjoyed her opportunities to learn and grow through Junior Holstein. I am very appreciative and humbled to receive this award. My parents are Frank Jr. and Ruth Bauer, and I have three younger brothers, Ethan, Seth and Ryan. I call Sandy-Valley Farms home. This 400-cow dairy farm is owned by my father, and his two brothers, David and Patrick. My Uncle Greg manages our merchandising program and I assist him in this area. Our farm sends up to 60 bulls to A.I. a year, and we merchandise embryos world-wide. My main responsibility on the farm is calf management. I am responsible for calves from birth to breeding age. I also coordinate our extensive embryo transfer program in which we flush over one hundred animals a year. I currently own 15 animals with my brother, Ethan, and cousin, Katie. I look forward to improving and merchandising our small herd. I continue to learn and expand my role at our farm and I hope to become the next generation to carry on the Sandy-Valley prefix. I plan on taking business and dairy classes at Fox Valley Technical College while continuing an active role on the farm. I have enjoyed being involved in activities at church, 4-H, FFA, and Junior Holstein. On a state level of Junior Holstein, I have participated in the Junior Trip, judging, photography and advertising contests, Cow Camp, dairy bowl, and DJM recognition. On our county level I serve as president and enjoy helping with our Calf Sale every year and participating in other various activities every year. As a homeschooled student, I have gone a bit out of my way to be involved in FFA and have earned awards for my dairy involvement. I have really enjoyed my role as a dairy leader for our 4-H club. I love helping kids pick out calves to take to the fair, showing the kids how to get their calves ready, and helping them work on showmanship skills. I was delighted when my cousins, Katie and Emily Bauer, placed first and second in the same showmanship class; the judge was thoroughly impressed with their skills. Katie also did very well at State Fair, placing 3rd overall in her age division. It was great to think that I had some part in that. I thank God for the very supportive family He has given me in my mom, dad, and three brothers. I appreciate their willingness to let me skip out on chores for fairs, dairy judging, and 4-H and Junior Holstein activities. I am also very thankful for the support of my aunts, uncles, and cousins who have also allowed me to take time away from chores at the farm and have encouraged me as well. I have benefitted from having very supportive Junior leaders in Brenda Long, Sandy Cordes, and Carla and Willis Gunst. Clint Beyer and Bruce Hoeft were very instrumental in encouraging my interest in dairy

Receiving the Outstanding Holstein Boy award had been a goal of mine since a Junior Holstein convention seven years ago when I saw my older brother receive the honor. I distinctly remember thinking to myself about how neat it would be to someday stand up at that podium just like Tony was doing. I feel that receiving this distinction is owed to the many people that have helped me even become a part of the discussion to receive the award. It has been a very humbling experience throughout, and I feel like one of the most fortunate young men to have such a strong family and supporting group to be involved with. My name is Jacob Brey and I am the 20 year old son of Bill and Clarice Brey. I have three older sisters, Christy (Nathan) Vogel, Angie (Mark) Ulness, and Katie (Menno) Huiser, as well as my brother Tony and his wife Moriah. Currently I am attending UW-Madison as a sophomore majoring in Dairy Science with an emphasis in Business. On campus I am active in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity, the Badger Dairy Club, the dairy judging team, and storming the Kohl Center and Camp Randall whenever #1 Ohio State decides to come to town. Seeing my older siblings come to Madison, I did as well, and it has been one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. Cycle Farm in Sturgeon Bay is where I call home. Currently there are about 230 milking registered Holstein cows and close to 300 head of young stock. I enjoy assisting in any way I can when I am here at school, whether it be deciding which bulls to purchase for matings or sending ideas back home that I may learn in class. We run around 750 acres of alfalfa, corn and winter wheat. Undertaking nearly all of the fieldwork ourselves becomes a bit challenging at times, especially when hosting a State Holstein Picnic is in store, but it was extremely rewarding to see the hard work pay off this past summer. I owe my parents a great deal for teaching me to have a level head and to work hard; to see my projects through completion and to give them my fullest attention and effort. I became extremely active in 4-H, FFA and Jr. Holstein by simply following in the footsteps of what my older siblings did back in their days. Therefore, participating in activities such as dairy judging, dairy bowl and showing became a mainstay in my youth. However, being the competitive person that I am always pushed me to want to improve. I tried to never feel content with how the results ended, whether it was standing near the top of a class with a heifer or especially after giving a bad set of reasons. I learned a lot by watching and asking questions to the people I thought were stand-up individuals in whatever they were doing, and I would like to thank them for that. My family is who I need to thank the most for growing me not only into the Junior Holstein member I have become, but more importantly the individual that I am today. My parents always encourage me to work smart and hard and to develop a strong work ethic. They instilled in me a valuable lesson as a young person that good things happen to good people. My sister Christy and her family show me to have a strong faith and to remember where I come from. My godmother Angie and brother from another mother Mark are two of my biggest fans, coming to support me at nearly every event. They are great role models

16–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/March, 2011

Danae Bauer, continued judging and helping me attain success in that area. I am grateful for the support I have been shown by so many encouraging people. I would like to encourage juniors to set goals and dream big. Do what you love, learn from others, work hard, and you can accomplish anything. You might surprise yourself. I did!

Jacob Brey, continued for me in the dairy industry and are growing a great young family. Katie gives me the impression to be open-minded and to not be afraid to try new things that may go against the grain. I also owe a huge thanks to my favorite older brother Tony. I enjoy our daily talks and how you are like Bret Beilema and dad is like Barry Alvarez; always trying to recruit me, as in this case, to come back to the farm. I also can’t forget to give a shout out to the biggest member of our family, the Lord, for guiding me in everything that I do. My time in the Junior Holstein Association has been unforgettable. I need to thank all of the leaders from Door County as well as the state and national level for presenting me with the opportunity to be involved in such a great organization. I would like to thank the judges for presenting me with the award, especially given the competition. Whether I do return home after college or pursue a goal of mine to become a classifier for Holstein USA, I will use this accomplishment as yet another step within my time in the dairy industry. Finally, to the young members out there, I would hope that you realize we are involved in this association to have fun and make friends, so don’t let anything get in the way of that!

Olmar Valiant BettyLou 2E 91


Bettylou’s story started 30 years ago with 4EX and 3 VG daughters. She has provided us with All American nominees, AI and Embryo contracts, GMDs, DOMs and opportunities to market animals in all arenas. Trends have come and gone, but the demand for offspring from the Betty family has never wavered. Currently 1/3 of our herd traces back to Bettylou. We have developed over 25 EX and 35 VG Betty’s with many more in barns around the globe. We’ll let the pictures tell the rest of her story.

WISCONSIN MADISON Dairy Science STUDENT PROFILE Name: Mason Amundson Hometown: Mount Hope, WI High School: River Ridge High School Class Size: 62 Farm: Nordic-Ridge Holsteins, 120 dairy cows Major: Dairy Science Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? I wanted to take advantage of the opportunities that a large school can offer a student. Getting out of my small hometown and meeting new people was also what helped me decide that the UW was the school for me. What has been your most memorable college experience? Badger football game day has always been a good time with friends that I will never forget and I look forward to returning as an alumni. What has been your favorite course? My favorite course has been Dairy Science 375 with Dr. Wiltbank. This class has given me the opportunity to practice basic dairy cow reproductive practices. I was also able to learn the science behind today’s reproductive protocols and learn how to use them to maximize a dairy’s potential. What are your future career goals? My dream is to become a large animal veterinarian and practice here in Wisconsin. I want to specialize in dairy cow reproduction and maybe someday own my own embryo transfer business.

Poly-Kow Mailing is an excellent example of the type of bulls we use in our breeding program, and we continue to use him. All three of these cows come from generations of homebred success. Solid bulls, with solid type, produce cows that work and last for us. We’ve explored many different options, but feel good old “cow sense” and “common sense” are the best way to decide matings and breed cows. We currently have a few bulls available, born September 2010. We have two in service at the Dale & Jake Roth farm in Eland and Jake says they’re built right, look good and getting the job done!

ACKY WPoint of View Editor’s Comments

Welcome to another special Midwest Holsteins issue - March 2011 is the 5th anniversary of our inaugural Midwest Holsteins issue. It’s been a joy to work with the other Midwest editors over the years and I am proud to say we’ve provided Holstein Breeders across five states expanded advertising opportunities for a reasonable price. I hope you’ll enjoy reading through the ads in this issue. I’m excited to announce that full issues of the News are now available online. You can access the electronic version of the News by going to the Publications tab on the WHA website - and clicking on “This Month’s Features”. Click on the picture of this month’s cover and it will take you to the current issue. This month’s issue contains info about the upcoming Barn Meetings I hope you’ll take an afternoon to come to one of the meetings. We have four great herds lined up as hosts and two respected young vets, Dr. Chris Booth and Dr. Matt Dorshorst will be featured speakers at the meetings. More information and directions to each farm is printed on page 6. Next month will be our Production issue and will feature Top Performer winners, 300,000 and 400,000 lb. lifetime cows and results from the Adult Convention. If you have a late spring sale consignment you’d like to advertise give me a call by March 10. Our May issue will be our “Genomic Stars” issue - so if you have a special cow or heifer you’d like to advertise please give me a call by April 11. If you haven’t heard, Ashley Yager has left WHA for a job at ABS Global. We will miss her greatly at WHA and wish her the best of luck in the future. I’d like to personally thank Ashley for all her hard work on articles and special features for the News the last four years and all her work to promote WHA and it’s members. It’s been an honor to work with you and I appreciate everything you’ve contributed to WHA. Thank you for your dedication to Wisconsin Holsteins and for your friendship!! 24–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/March, 2011
