Obituaries David Delfosse David Delfosse, 60, of Brussels, a most beloved Grandpa and Dad met the Lord on Monday, March 28 2011. He was born August 26, 1950 in Brussels, to Robert and Armaine Delfosse. The family farmed in Brussels. Growing up a farm boy never left David’s soul. In 1975 David, his wife and his one year old daughter started their own dairy in Brussels, Delstar Holsteins. Beginning with just a handful of grade cattle, David grew his farm into a Registered herd of 50 milking cattle, raising young stock and harvesting 250 acres. With hard work, successful breeding and his infatuation for the showring, David successfully showed at the County Fair, District Show, State Fair and World Dairy Expo through his years as a dairyman. David’s most prized award was his years of Progressive Breeder accomplishments. He always believed anyone can just buy a prestigious Registered cow, but only a true heart and soul dairyman can breed the dam with correct mating, calve out a heifer, raise God’s animal and be able to praise her with honor in that showring. After ending his farming career in 1994, David lived on as a dairyman. He received his certification as a dairy judge, which his family always told him he would be great at. David judged county fairs all over Wisconsin and was always called back a second year. Children who had their cattle judged by him found comfort in his smile, patience and words of wisdom in the ring. David carried on his graces at one of his favorite places; The Door County Fair. Here, David was the face that everyone knew. He always took showing very serious and with great dedication. His grandchildren were taught to show with Grandpas hands. David was head of Little Britches every year at the fair and took on the job with joy and honor. His only son, Adam Delfosse had bought the family farm in 1996 and carried on his dad’s trait of breeding strong Registered dairy cattle. David was reborn again when he and Adam went into partnership with numerous Registered cattle. The world never knew a man so in love with the Registered holstein cow and the family farm. David is sadly missed every day by his daughter Mindie Overbeck, son-in-law Travis and their children Mitchell, Faith and Brodie; son, Adam Delfosse, daughter-in-law Megan and their children, Ethan, Ashlyn and Aiden; daughter, Danielle Ware, son-inlaw, Tom and their children, Moriah, Gracie and Taylor. 8–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/May 2011

David’s nine grandchildren captured his heart in every way. Life will not be the same to go on without a Papa. Grandpa David was truly the best kind of Papa. He gave so many gifts to his little angels; his gift of laughter, protection, affection, cheering on, listening, and complimenting. Every basketball game will have an empty bleacher were their biggest fan always cheered, every soccer, softball, hardball game and track meet will have an empty lawn chair, every fair will miss the wash rack warrior and only his hands that could do those detailed top-lines and fix that halter for showmanship. David will live on forever in his grandchildren by the many simple gifts he gave them. Dad always said; heaven on earth to him was either his grandchildren laughing or cows grazing with a church in the backdrop. May we all find this kind of simplicity as beautiful as he did.

From your President Corey Geiger Dear Wisconsin Holstein Association members: Our April 19 WHA board meeting was held one day before the press deadline for the May Wisconsin Holstein News. Our meeting began with a WHA portfolio review from Marsha Stewart with Merrill Lynch. Over the past eight years, the WHA Director of Operations and the WHA Board, along with help from Marsha, have developed mission statements for our seven accounts held with Merrill Lynch. These mission statements give better focus to our investment goals. Overall, our investments continue to perform strongly despite our somewhat conservative investment strategy. The combined Wisconsin Holstein Association account balance stands at $432,000 at the end of March. And during the past 14 years that our money has been invested with Merrill Lynch, we have had a 95.62 percent return on investment. That means we have nearly doubled our money. On an annual basis, we have earned a 5.2 percent return on our portfolio. As a comparison, if we had invested in the S&P (all stocks), returns would have been 3.24 percent, and a suggested Model Portfolio for nonprofits would have returned 4.71 percent. Both those returns are lower than the actual WHA Portfolio performance. Meanwhile, investing in an Aggregate Bond Index performance would have been slightly higher at 5.62 percent. Bottom line, our Association has very stable investments despite a tight fiscal budget for this year. Shows always seem to garner a great deal of attention at board meetings. This meeting was no exception. The WHA Board approved a clarification to the junior membership agreement by developing a rule that states animals owned by the junior, either solely or in partnership, are ineligible for all WHA-sponsored shows if a junior is in violation of the WHA Junior Member Agreement. This rule goes into effect immediately. On another widely debated matter since last year’s Wisconsin State Holstein Show, the WHA Board decided to keep the Spring Heifer Calf Class, Exhibitor 10 & under as is for 2011. Please note, those rules include the fact that calves must be under sole control of the

person on the halter. That means no help from anyone else! As you know, this unique Spring Heifer Calf Class allows youth that are 10 and under as of January 1 to show at our State Show in a separate division. First- and second-place open and first- and second-place junior animals in this class may compete in Class 2 which is the open division of the Spring Heifer Calf Class. We hope all our members follow the original spirit of this class when it started over a decade ago. If that occurs, there will be no need to revise rules. However, if concerns continue to surround the class, it may be brought up for discussion at next year’s annual meeting. The very active Young Adult Committee is planning a golf outing prior to the WHA picnic hosted by Matt and Mandy Nunes’ Scientific Holsteins in Chippewa Falls, Wis., on August 27. The event is open to all Holstein enthusiasts regardless of age. It will be a nine-hole scramble contest where the best ball is used from four-member teams. Like the bowling tournament held a few years ago at Adult Convention, this golf outing will randomly assign people to teams so everyone can meet new people. If you would like to participate, call the WHA office. The Association would like to have major events, including Junior and Adult Conventions along with the Wisconsin Championship Show, booked three years in advance. To date, only one of three events has extended commitments. The State Show will be in Fond du Lac this year, followed by Wood and Grant County. Adult convention will be hosted by WaupacaWaushara County next year, and one county is seriously looking at 2013. Meanwhile, we have a county looking at hosting next year’s junior convention, and Rock County will host in 2013. Bottom line, WHA needs convention hosts to step forward for future adult and junior conventions. Lastly, I would like to congratulate all four Wisconsin Distinguished Junior Member (DJM) candidates. All four of our nominees qualified for nationals: Danae Bauer, Scandinavia; Mitchell Kappelman, Two Rivers; Kelly Lee, Johnson Creek; and Carl Lippert, Pittsville. This marks the second straight year all four Wisconsin candidates were among the twelve national semi-finalists. Wisconsin also has two Younger Distinguished Junior Members. Congrats to Jessica Pralle of Humbird and Crystal Siemers-Peterman of Cleveland. In dairy we trust, Your President, Corey Geiger

Voight-Acres Daisy Duke has been flushed to Goldwyn with five heifers on the ground. Being named the Grand Champion at the Outagamie County Fair is considered an honor in the Voight family because of the prestigious herds in the county. Outagamie County has six herds in the top 200 BAA. These herds include Milksource with a BAA of 113.4, Craig Krohlow with a BAA of 112.9, Claude Court with a BAA of 111.2, Russ Letter with a BAA of 110.6, Steven Voight with a BAA of 110.0 and Mark Eggert with a BAA of 109.3.

Holstein Show. In 2002, they had the Junior All-American Senior Three-Year-Old and the Reserve Junior All-Wisconsin Winter Calf in 2003. The calves on Voight-Acres Farm are raised in individual pens until three months in the solar barn built in 2002. They are then moved to group pens until breeding age. The bred heifers and dry cows are moved to bedding-pack housing before going to be milked in the tie-stall barn with a pipeline milking system. The bedding consists of chopped straw and shaving on a mattress. The cows are fed haylage, corn silage, high-moisture corn, dry hay and protein mix. Voight-Acres consigns to many local sales. These sales include the Outagamie County Holstein Breeders Spring Sale, the Waupaca Calf Sale, the Fond du Lac County Sale and the Badger Invitational. At the Outagamie County Holstein Breeders Spring Sale, they will be selling a fall calf, Voight-Acres Atwood Rachel and two fresh two-year-olds, including Voight-Acres Finest Flirt. For the future, Voight-Acres hopes to maintain their herd of 85 cows, as well as their young stock. Their current goal is to expand crop acres for more commodity crop sales.

Hendrickson’s Holstein Holler

Hello! My name is Breinne Hendrickson, this past January I was crowned your 2011 Wisconsin Holstein Princess. I am the nineteen-year-old daughter of Jeff and Kate Hendrickson from Belleville, where I grew up on a registered Holstein dairy farm. I have four brothers, Brandon, Trent, Trevor and Brooks, and one sister, Kelsi. I am a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Dairy Science and Life Science Communications. While at school I am very active within the Association of Women in Agriculture and the Badger Dairy Club. I have been a member of the Junior Holstein Association since I was four years old, as well as showing since that age. I am looking forward to the rest of the upcoming year, such as Cow Camp, various shows, traveling around the state, learning new things, teaching others about the wonderful industry I adore, and meeting many great people! I have recently attended the Adult Holstein Convention, the Breakfast on the Farm hosted by the Association of Women in Agriculture and the Midwest National Spring Show. I am looking forward to an amazing year serving as your Holstein Association Ambassador and working with Carrie Warmka, as well as many other Holstein enthusiasts! I hope to see all of you at many of the events!

Wisconsin Holstein Breeders host Successful Barn Meetings The Wisconsin Holstein Association held a series of successful barn meetings at four farms during the last part of March and first of April 2011. The topic of discussion at each barn meeting was reproduction and the tools available to producers to help with conception and reproductive efficiency. The first two barn meetings were hosted by Paradise-D Holsteins, the Dan and Nancy Pagenkopf family of Lancaster on Thursday, March 24, and Forest-Ridge Holsteins, Kurt and Sarah Loehr, Eden, on Monday, March 28. A large group of visitors attended each meeting and were treated to a tour of the facilities, a great herd of cows and a delicious lunch. Dr. Chris Booth spoke at both meetings and gave a presentation on improving reproductive efficiency. He started the talk by saying everyone’s situation is different with different goals for their reproductive program and how success is measured, whether by conception rate, pregnancy rate or percent pregnant at vet check. There are several factors that contribute to cow fertility and management for nutrition, disease, milk production is very important along with environment and a cow’s genetics. Dr. Booth shared results from past studies that show about one in four cows are not cycling at 65-75 days in milk. There are several synching programs that have been developed to help get cows cycling. He pointed out that with any program there are three steps to setting up a successful synching program: 1. How and when are cows submitted for first AI and what is the voluntary waiting period. 2. How and when are open cows to the first AI identified and submitted for second AI (heat detection, pregnancy check, etc.). 3. Repeat set two until pregnant or you stop trying. Dr. Booth went through several synching programs and the protocols for each. He stressed that with any program, the timeliness of the shots is key to maximize fertility. Some of the benefits for presynchronizing cows for first service include getting more high producing cows ready for first service, a 10-15% increase in conception rate with presynch versus no set-up (natural heat or just starting Ovsynch protocol), and a 5% increase in conception rate using a 14-11 Presynch vs. 14-14 Presynch protocol. Dr. Booth also pointed out several reasons why Ovsynch doesn’t “work” for some herds, including that people only use Ovsynch on problem cows, starting cows during the wrong stage of their cycle and lack of compliance when giving shots. If producers are having reproductive problems, they are also encouraged to review their AI techniques and to work with their veterinarian, nutritionist and other advisors as a team. Ralph and Sharon Bredl of Harmony-Ho Dairy, Stratford, hosted a meeting on Wednesday, March 30, and attendees were treated to a tour of their facilities as well as a tasting of several variety of cheeses produced by Harmony Speciality Dairy Foods. Steve Dewall, Genex Dairy Specialist, was also on hand to point out some of Harmony-Ho’s Genex Genesis cows. The Ralph and Sheila Petersheim family hosted the final meeting on Friday, April 1, at Welsh-Edge Holsteins near Viroqua. Visitors were able to see a great herd of homebred cows, highlighted by the Ginger family including Durham Gingerheart and her Excellent and Very Good daughters. Dr. Matt Dorshorst was the speaker at both Harmony-Ho Dairy and Welsh-Edge Holsteins. He encouraged breeders to monitor the nutrition of their herd and work with their nutritionists to keep cows on the right track as fifty-percent of dairy cows experience one health crisis during the transition period, which can cause conception rates to be less than 35 percent. He also pointed out that the general management of your herd affects your reproductive success. Dr. Dorshorst shared that studies show 70 percent of heats occur from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., which is why synching protocols have been developed. He also stressed that with any program, all shots and the timing of the shots is critically important for the success of the program. Also, pre-screening and ultrasounding cows will help to identify cows that are good candidates for a synching program. Dr. Dorshorst briefly discussed technologies used for pregnancy diagnosis and stated that ultrasound offers the most advantages regarding determination of fetal viability, twining and fetal sexing. He 16–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/May 2011

also urged everyone to consult with their veterinarian about reproduction protocols as there are a lot of options and your vet will know best what will work in your situation while considering your goals and limitations. The Wisconsin Holstein Association would like to extend a huge thank you to each of the barn meeting hosts and our speakers for putting on a fantastic group of meetings.

Gloss has a Bowser son at Alta, a Russell at CRV, a Paddy going to Accelerated, and pregnancies by Attack, Bookem, Shamrock, Sherac, Trigger, and Gold Chip with AI contracts for each. Gloss also has a Bowser daughter, Honeycrest Bowser Glisten at +2476 GTPI - that’s #20 of the breed. She’s attracting a lot of interest, and has NO Shottle, Goldwyn, Rudolph, or Durham in her pedigree.

Dolly has sons in A.I. and completes 8 generations of EX or VG with over 30,000M and over 1100F. Six of those are GMD or DOMs. Her daughter Bosside Massey Mabel (the BUY of the 2010 Wisconsin Futures Sale), comes in at +2208 GTPI, and currently carries four A.I. contracts. She is being flushed. Mabel has NO Shottle, Goldwyn, or Oman in her pedigree.

Tease has a Massey granddaughter, Honeycrest Massey Amelia, via a VG-87 Fritz that’s +2012 GTPI, is contracted and will be flushed this spring. She has NO Shottle, Goldwyn, Oman, Marshal, Durham, or Rudolph in her pedigree.

After picking her out of a group of calves, it wasn’t until later that night with some research that her rich history and impressive lineage was discovered. Her first 10 dams all were bred in Shawano County, and the 11th dam is Mayers Duchess Fern Molly VG-85, descending from the great Christ Mayer herd. She already stands out among her herdmates and we are excited to develop her! Thank you to Bruce Buettner for sending her to the sale!

ANIMAL HEALTH RULES AND REGULATIONS/DAIRY CATTLE ALL CATTLE - Health requirements for the Wisconsin District and Championship Shows are the same as the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture’s requirements for intrastate movement of cattle. Please visit the DATCP website for the most recent rules - 2011FairRules.pdf It is highly recommended that all animals shown at the District and Championship Show be vaccinated for BVD according to your Veterinarian’s recommendations. It is also highly recommended that animals be tested for Persistently Infected (PI) BVD animals. This is a once in a lifetime test to insure that the animal is not a PI or shedder animal carrying the BVD Virus. Cattle infected with ringworm, warts, or mange may not be exhibited unless the veterinarian in charge determines the ringworm lesions or warts are inactive and incapable of transmitting the disease. Any cattle found with ringworm, warts, mange or scab shall be removed from the premises of the show. Show management is responsible for maintaining records of persons who have exhibited at the show and the identification of animals shown for 2 years. Acceptable forms of animal identification for breeding animals are (1) an official metal ear tag, (2) a breed registration number, or (3) a breed registration tattoo. Ribbons and Trophies: Ribbons for the District Shows are available from the Wisconsin Holstein office. Trophies are optional for District Shows and the responsibility of each District Show host. The Championship Show ribbons will be provided by the Wisconsin Holstein Association and the Wisconsin Junior Activities Committee.

NO JUNIOR TRANSFER APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THE SHOWS. a. Partnerships between two juniors are allowed if both members are current WI Holstein Association Junior members. No other partnership qualifies for Junior Recognition. b. Junior exhibitors must be sole leadsperson for their animals in order to receive recognition. If a junior has more than one junior owned animal in one individual class, the junior exhibitor must designate which of the animals will be led by the exhibitor.

However, they are not eligible for Junior awards. d. To be considered for Junior Awards, exhibitors must identify themselves as a qualified junior member on the entry form and upon check-in to show management. e. It is the responsibility of the Junior owner to prove ownership of animal by hard copy (on the registration paper). Bred and Owned: This award is to be given at the Wisconsin Championship Show and is optional at the District Shows. An award will be given in all the female classes for the highest placing animal bred and owned by exhibitor; partnership animals are eligible for Bred & Owned award as long as original breeder(s) and owner(s) maintains part ownership. Breeder is to be determined as the owner of the dam at the time of the service; where a herd is registered in the names of different members of a family residing on one farm, and everyone is using the same prefix, all entries may be considered as Bred and Owned by Exhibitor. Junior Bred and Owned: To be eligible for Junior Bred & Owned, the name(s) listed as breeder and owner on the registration certificate must be the same. Adult-Junior partnerships are not acceptable. Family unit or farm partnerships will not qualify for Junior Bred & Owned awards unless all partners are Junior members and listed on the certificate under breeder and owner. Production Awards: This award is optional at the District Show. In all cow classes, except the Jr. & Sr. 2 Year Olds, the cow with the highest 305 day milk production will be recognized. The recognition will be based solely on total pounds of milk production without regard to the milking frequency or the testing program. Records should be entered on the entry form and verified at the time of check-in with an official test sheet or an official pedigree. Best Udder: This award is optional at the District Show. At the State Championship Show a Best Udder ribbon will be awarded in all milking cow classes. The Best Udder cow in each of the milking classes will compete to select the Best Udder Cow of the Show.

In case of a tie, additional animals will be counted, one at a time, until the tie is broken. Breeder Defined: The owner of the dam at the time of service shall be considered the breeder of the animals. Where a herd is registered in the names of different members of a family, and where the herd is one unit, and everyone is using the same prefix, all entries may be considered as exhibits of one breeder. Otherwise, when animals are bred in partnership, each unique partnership is considered a unique breeder. Premier Exhibitor Award: The exhibitor winning the most points on four (4) animals, all owned and exhibited by exhibitor in the open, single classes, shall be designated the Premier Exhibitor. Premier Exhibitor form is to be filled out at time of check-in to be eligible for this award. No entry fee is required. In case of a tie, additional animals will be counted, one at a time, until the tie is broken. Exhibitor Defined: Exhibitor shall be named as the owner shown on the registration paper. In case a herd is registered or bred in the names of different members of a family, residing on one farm or breeding establishment, and where the herd is one unit, all entries may be considered as a single exhibitor for all group classes and Premier Exhibitor. However, members of one family, where cattel are not housed as one unit, will not be considered as a single exhibitor. When animals are owned in partnership, each unique partnership is considered a unique exhibitor. Premier Breeder and Exhibitor points will be awarded to the top 10 animals in each class. In classes with 10 or less animals, no more than two head per breeder or exhibitor will be counted toward premier points. If the class has more than 10 animals, then a single breeder or exhibitor may obtain points on more than two animals if the animals stand in the top 10 placings of the class.

2011 Junior Trip Report Kinyon Holsteins, Marty & Trudy Kinyon Our first stop was Kinyon Holsteins, owned and operated by Marty & Trudy who recently went into partnership with their daughter Jill and son-in-law Lisi. Jill & Lisi have two kids who make up the 4th generation on the farm. Marty’s father bought the farm in 1947. Kinyon Holsteins breed mostly for type and don’t focus on genomics. Their extraordinary herd has a BAA of 109.7, with a 25,000 lb. herd average for a little more than 100 cows. We saw a Goldwyn daughter of Budjon-JK Fallen Embers that is VG-85, a three year old Roy who won their district show in 2010 and a few spring consignments which included an 88 pt. Toystory daughter who will be selling in the Milksource sale. She is a herd favorite of the Kinyons. We would like to again thank everyone at Kinyon Holsteins for taking time to show us their operation.

Finally we saw the cows. We saw the amazing Glystal cow and her daughter who also looked good. After the tour the family treated us to ice cream sundaes and gave us some gifts from the farm. The tour was a fun experience and showed us this amazing farm & family. We thank the Pagenkopf family for allowing us to visit.

Stone-Front Farm, Andy & Lyn Buttles Stone-Front Farm is the breeder of Stone-Front Iron Pasta. Pasta traces back to one of Andy’s first show calves. Pasta’s dam is 14 years old and still kickin’. She is a 92-2E cow. Pasta currently still has plenty of offspring running around including twin Talents and three Jaspers due to calve within the next seven weeks. Stone-Front Farm originated in Racine County but is currently located in Lancaster. Over the last five years they went from having a herd of 60 to 500 milking. They have a double-10 herringbone parlor, milking two times a day. They run 1,000 acres of land. Stone-Front was by far a very moving experience for us young dairymen of Wisconsin.

Nordic-Ridge, Kurtis & Deon Amundson We visited Nordic-Ridge Holsteins, home of the Amundson family - Kurt, Deon, Mitch & Mason. They currently milk 105 cows on 2 times a day milking. They moved to Wisconsin from northeast Iowa. Every building on the farm but one has been redone. They raise their calves in a greenhouse and have not lost a calf in four years. They currently milk in a swing 8 parlor, averaging around 80 pounds/day and had an average SCC in 2010 of 71,000. They have 187 acres tillable and feed a TMR. They breed for longevity, udders, feet and legs. We thank them for allowing us to visit their farm.

Moorclose Holsteins, Bill & Kelle Calvert To start Sunday, we went to Moorclose Holsteins, owned by Bill and Kelle Calvert. They are located outside of Cuba City. They milk about 75 cows three times a day. Their cows average 101 pounds of milk in the tank every day. They have a BAA of 108.4 with a RHA of 28,000. They sell about 30-40 cows a year. They have a greenhouse where they have 20 individual pens and two small group pens. Their calves then go to a shed that was an old free-stall barn. They bed with sawdust. They scrape every other day. They also have a dry cow barn. We want to thank the Calverts for hosting a tour.

Paradise-D Holsteins, Dan & Nancy Pagenkopf Paradise-D Holsteins is the home of Dan and Nancy Pagenkopf and their children, Craig, Andrea & Scott. Craig started our tour of the family farm by showing us their bulls and explaining how they sell the seventy bulls they raise each year. Next the family showed us their heifer shed and explained the rotation for a calf and their feed plans. After the heifer shed we were able to look in the new calf barn and they showed us their protection for bio-security for their calves.

Kamps-Hollow, Richard Kamps Family After our stop at Moorclose we made our way to Belmont, home of the Kamps-Hollow Genetics and Altitude. Kamps-Hollow is owned and operated by Richard & Carol Kamps along with their son Ryan. Eighty-two cows, most of which trace back to Altitude, call this home and eat feed grown on 800 acres owned and farmed by the Kamps. The cows are milked in a traditional tie-stall barn with a unique addition built in 2002. This was done to make it easier to conduct tours, and show off bigger cows. It has 20 stalls and three boxstalls. The stalls are raised 10 inches off the ally, designed to get a 32–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/May 2011

skid loader through for scraping. Cows are housed in loose pack barns when outside. Our time at KampsHollow concluded with an opportunity to see the dam of Advent and Apple, Altitude. She and her Prelude dam are housed in a newly built pack barn with 40 descendants. At 11 years old, Altitude looks excellent as does her 18 year old Prelude dam, Alicia. Kamps-Hollow was a unique experience that all of us were grateful to see.

Hardwood Holsteins, Chuck Jinkins Hardwood Farms in Livingston is owned & operated by Chuck Jinkins. The farm was started 40 years ago by Chuck’s dad as a hobby. It grew into a family operation. The farm started with 40 cows and grew to 50. In 2004 he added on to the barn and it grew to 80 Registered Holsteins. He bought a Bootmaker calf in 1972 and 70% of his herd can be traced back to that calf. He feeds no TMR and buys all of his hay and some corn. He milks with a hired hand two times a day with eight machines. We really enjoyed visiting his farm and getting the opportunity to see all of his Excellent cows.

Gildale Holsteins, Mark & Erik Gilbertson Gildale Holsteins is located in Hollandale, where they milk 42 cows in a stall barn. This farm is 4th generation, owned & operated by Mark, his son Erik and daughter-in-law Brenda. They feed no TMR, just hay and corn silage and a haylage mixture. They sold out in 1996 but started up again in 1997 when they bought some of a herd from Canada. They are breeding for type and also have had a couple of AllAmericans. Mark & Erik are volunteer firefighters. They also have another farm where some of their heifers are housed. They milk two times a day. Their cows are on city water. This was a very good learning experience.

Kellercrest Holsteins, Tim, Sandy & Mark Keller Kellercrest Holsteins is owned and operated by Tim, Sandy and Mark Keller, and Tim & Sandy’s children are Andy and Kimberly. Their farm is located in Mt. Horeb. They milk 282 cows in a double-12 parallel parlor, two times a day. Their herd is 100% Registered and 98% homebred. They run 150 acres of corn and alfalfa. They have a BAA of 106.2 which is 5th or 6th in the country. Currently there are 40 Toystory two year olds milking that scored well and milk really well. In their herd they have about 100 descendants that go back to their cornerstone cow, Kellercrest Winken Lusty. We were really impressed with their herd and greatly appreciate getting the opportunity to see their awesome herd of cows.

WISCONSIN MADISON Dairy Science STUDENT PROFILE Name: Jade Buchholz Hometown: Westfield, WI High School: Pioneer Westfield High School Class Size: 110 Farm: So-Fine Bovines, LLC Major: Dairy Science

Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? Madison has a great reputation for producing future leaders in the dairy industry, like the Holstein Association members I looked up to when I was younger. I also knew that by coming to Madison I would be exposed to a variety of opportunities to succeed and given the chance to learn from experts in their field. What has been your most memorable college experience? Being a member of the Badger Dairy Club – it has given me the opportunity to work closely with World Dairy Expo, gain leadership experience and responsibility with officer positions, and learn more about the dairy industry through club trips and farm touring. What has been your favorite course? Dairy Science 375 – Reproduction with Milo Wiltbank and Jerry Guenther because it is a very practical and hands-on class and both Milo and Jerry really care about the success of their students. They are willing to go the extra mile to help them reach their full potential. What are your future career goals? After graduation I will be working with Ag Consulting Team, Inc. doing on-farm dairy nutrition in northeast Wisconsin.
