Obituaries Roger Fust Roger C. Fust, 74, of the town of Easton, passed away Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011, at Wausau Aspirus Hospital after a courageous five-year battle with cancer. He was born March 4, 1937, the only child of the late Clarence and Dorothy (Sickler) Fust. From the time he was born, Roger had a passion for agriculture, growing up on the family farm. He was very active in D.C. Everest FFA and Badger 4-H, receiving the highest awards, The American Farmer Degree and The 4-H Key Award. He was a graduate of the second graduating class at D.C. Everest High School in 1955. He was also a member of the Wisconsin National Guard. He met his “farmer girl,” Darleen, at a polka dance at the former Colonial Ballroom. They were married June 6, 1959. He married into a large family of ten brothers- and sisters-in-law and 27 nieces and nephews who he enjoyed very much throughout the years. Roger and Darleen were blessed with two children. They farmed together for 52 years with his parents, children and grandchildren. He was very proud of receiving the Century Farm Award in 2005 and that the farm continues for five generations. Roger was a lifelong member of St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Wausau where he was baptized, confirmed and married. He served on various committees through the years and was past church council president. He was currently serving as an usher. Roger was frequently recognized for his contributions and service by local and state organizations such as the Farm Bureau, Wausau Area Jaycees, Marathon County Holstein Breeders, Wisconsin Agriculturist Magazine, FFA and 4-H. He had served on the board of directors of several organizations including the Marathon County Dairy Herd improvement Association, Marathon County Holstein Breeders, Cloverbelt Co-Op, Tomorrow Valley Co-Op, Marathon County Agriculture Society Fair Board, DHIA State Policy Committee, ASCS, and Marathon County Farm Bureau, where he served as president off and on for the past 16 years. He was currently serving on the Servco FS board and the town of Easton zoning committee. As a couple, through the years, they enjoyed polka dancing, square dancing, bowling, snowmobiling, attending farm-related conventions, traveling, watching the Green Bay Packers, and socializing with friends over a Friday night fish fry. Roger enjoyed machinery shopping. Every week he would go through all the farm papers looking at the equipment for sale, searching for the next item to make a deal on. He also enjoyed going on Sunday drives through the countryside looking at farm fields, having breakfast with his “coffee buddies,” and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandsons. Survivors include his wife, Darleen (Seymour); children, Brian (Wendy) Fust and Brenda (Kevin) Prieve; grandchildren, Nicole, Jennifer (Adam) Krause, Tyler (special friend, Shannon McLaughlin) and Ryan Prieve; and his adorable great-grandsons, Aiden and Bailey Krause, who brought many smiles to him in his last years. He is also survived by his

brothers- and sisters-in-law, Donald and Ruth Seymour, Maynard and Lucille Bedish, Rita Seymour, DuWayne and Joanne Schulz, and Shirley Madden; an aunt, Margaret Meseberg; many nieces, nephews and friends; and his feline companions, Jake and Jerry. He was preceded in death by his brothers-in-law, Norman Seymour and Earl Madden; and his beloved grandson, Bradley Fust. The family would like to thank Dr. Christopher Peterson, Dr. Joseph Babiarz, Dr. Darryl Barton and Dr. Brian Smith, and their respective nursing staffs. The family would like to further thank the Home Hospice Service, and all the nurses and CNAs on the Palliative Care Unit at Aspirus Wausau Hospital for the excellent care provided to Roger. A memorial fund will be established. Memorials may also be made to St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Wausau. Rest in peace, we love you, and we will all miss you.

wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/October, 2011-5

From your President Corey Geiger Dear Wisconsin Holstein Association members: Wisconsin is fortunate to host World Dairy Expo. As hosts of national and international events of this nature, our industry has an incredible responsibility to ensure animal health... not only for cattle visiting the Badger State, but, perhaps more importantly, for cattle that reside in our state on a permanent basis. Some of the ways we can help protect all cattle is through stringent health monitoring headed up by Wisconsin state veterinarian, Dr. Bob Ehlenfeldt. Another vital tool is our premise and visible identification standards which are among the most comprehensive in the nation. These ID efforts are headed up by the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC). Up until this point, WLIC has been funded with federal funds primarily obtained through work by Senator Herb Kohl. With the federal budget shortfalls, WLIC’s future funding is in question, and the Wisconsin livestock industry is holding meetings to see if a long-term funding package can be developed. Make no mistake, having an industry-driven identification effort is far superior to one directed by any government agency. Some may question the need to fund ID. It is this simple - USDA’s latest identification proposal, known as Animal Disease Traceability, calls for states to source an infected animal and all animals that came into contact with it. If your state cannot fulfill that requirement, the entire state becomes quarantined. How would that impact your farm? How would sales of your Holsteins be affected? So, how does WLIC get funded moving forward? Robert Fourdraine, chief operating officer of WLIC, stopped by the September 2011 WHA board meeting to discuss that very issue. Presently, it takes about $500,000 to fund WLIC. If the Wisconsin livestock industry gets behind this issue, Fourdraine envisions a scenario where the state government initiates a 50-50 cost share with the industry and would make $250,000 in matching funds available if the industry can generate the rest of the money. One possibility is to raise $150,000 through Wisconsin-branded tag sales with an additional $100,000 coming from sponsorships. WHA board member, Marci Walker, who is our representative for WLIC, provides these additional thoughts on forming the WLIC Partnership to Protect Wisconsin: 1. What happens on your farm affects your neighbor and vice versa. Size doesn’t matter; it’s all about the management. One farm can shut down a county or region quickly. 2. A disease-infected region could shut down feed and other inputs coming into your farm and milk/cattle/embryos leaving the farm resulting in major loss of income. 3. An efficient and effective animal-tracing infrastructure is like an insurance policy. 4. Either we, as an animal ag industry, work together to tell the government what we want and are doing, or we'll face them telling how they want us to do business. 5. Canada and the European Union (EU) use industry-driven and supported systems. They aren't perfectly tight, but traceability is very efficient. 6. Horse and poultry industries don't have an easy visible way of tagging animals. Horses use microchips but will not support ear tags. Horse and poultry could, however, help sponsor partnership efforts. 7. How many animals leave your herd or facility in a year? 8. WLIC data is private and not public and would remain that way. If the government owned the data, accountability and privacy could be different. Ben Brancel, Wisconsin’s agriculture secretary, challenged all those attending the meeting to be sure that our memberships (WHA members in our case) are informed and support this issue before we go to him and say “yes” we support the plan. As you can tell, the financing part of this proposal is in its infancy. Let your WHA directors know what you think about this issue so we may take a more formal position. Speaking of ID, the official registration for many Registered Holsteins is two official ear tags. At our recent District Shows and State Show, some Holsteins did not have tags in their ears. What made this a problem was the fact there were no sketches or photos on the paper. Simply said, no 6–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/October 2011

tags, no sketches, no photos means the animal is a grade. She is not eligible for the show. If animals are registered with tags, they must be in the ear. No exceptions. National Holstein tells me the tags are quite popular these days. Just over 60 percent of all applications for registry arrive online, and nearly all of those request ear tags. Lastly, consider nominating a breeder for our two highest honors: The Younger Distinguished Breeder Award (under 40 years old) and The Distinguished Breeder Award (a lifetime achievement award for a breeder over 40 years old). Applications are due by November 10. Call the office at (800) 223-4269 for an application or go to adultconvention.html to download the form. In dairy we trust, Your President, Corey Geiger

Hendrickson’s Holstein Holler

Hello Holstein Devotees! Summer has wound down to an end, but that doesn’t mean show season is over. World Dairy Expo is taking place October 4-8, 2011. I am extremely excited to be able to stand ringside during the show, and I’m sure many of you are looking forward to Expo as well, whether being either a participant or observer! This past August, I attended the Wisconsin State Fair. This is where the 25th Anniversary of the WHA Futurity took place, and it was a successful one at that! Everyone, both exhibitors and cows, were dressed with style. There were twenty-one participants, but Rob-Cri Holsteins walked away proudly with their first place entry, Rob-Cri Strmtc Manitoba-ET. I would like to wish a congratulations once again to them as well as all of the other farms and families who participated! It may have been raining at the event, but that didn’t affect the crowd, as the coliseum was filled with viewers. I think this show not only provides us an opportunity to dress up and show off our cows, but it also gives non-agricultural people the opportunity to see that there is more to us than cut off shirts, dirty bib overalls, and roughed up hands! More so, recognizing the Holstein cow and being able to show her off in an atmosphere of class creates respect for the things we love. On August 27, Mother Nature was great to us, providing us beautiful weather for the Wisconsin Holstein Picnic at Scientific Holsteins. I would like to thank the Nunes family for letting us visit their farm and providing us with a great view of cows! There was an excellent turn out, a majority of people participated in the judging contest, and many of the kids were able to bob for apples, dig for agricultural treasures, and see who could eat a donut the fastest off of a string! Everyone visited with one another during the delicious meal and then awards were handed out. Overall, it was great to see many people within the industry around the state come together for a stress-free day! I’ve been staying busy attending other events as well, such as State Show, fairs, county futurities, and county/district meetings. As busy as I am being involved with my own family’s show string, as well as princess duties, I don’t look back on the day and wish for any less. Now that school has started back up I hope to visit classrooms and talk to children about agriculture as a whole, and more specifically the Holstein Industry. We may have the knowledge of agriculture, but there are many people out there who should be aware of the great things we do and provide. Don’t be afraid to take time out of your own day to promote the dairy industry, so that we as a team can make a better future for the Holstein cow! Looking forward to seeing many of you very soon! Hollering On,

Breinne Hendrickson 608-444-7340/

Paulsoncrest Holsteins Brian & Tammy Paulson and Ron & Donna Paulson, Columbus By Amy Ryan

full-time feed mixer, four full-time milkers, and two part-time milkers. They have additional part-time help to assist during peak field work times. When discussing overall farm goals, Brian says that he and his family strive to have a productive, good financial business that sees progress from year to year. He feels increased efficiencies and better training as two keys to achieving this progress. One specific example of progress at their dairy is the recent purchase of a milk pasteurizer for waste milk. This has shown a two-fold improvement for the Paulsons, namely, a cost savings in milk replacer and healthier, more aggressive calves. Along with making progress on their overall farm goals, the Paulson any Holstein breeders have the goal of breeding a cow that will earn family also places a high value on genetic progress and that is where a winning medallion or purple ribbon on the colored shaving in Registered Holsteins have came into play.

Paulsoncrest is the prefix for the registered breeder.

Green County Junior Holsteins Deliver First Baby of June Basket Each year, the Green County Junior Holstein Association celebrates June Dairy Month by delivering a basket of gifts and dairy treats to the family of the first baby born at the Monroe Hospital during the month of June. Junior Holstein members Amber Dammen, Rachel and Brian McCullough presented this year’s basket to lucky recipients, Matthew and Sarah Binger of Freeport, Illinois. Their daughter Synthia was born June 1 at 4:22 am at the Monroe Clinic Hospital. She joins big sister Myla, 3. Synthia weighed in at 6 lbs. 7 oz. and was 21 ½ inches long. Her dad, Matthew grew up in Stephenson County, Illinois on a dairy farm where his family milked Holstein cows. Mom, Sarah grew up on a beef farm, also in Stephenson County.

The University of

WISCONSIN MADISON Dairy Science Student Profile Name: Chelsea Brander Hometown: Spring Green, WI High School: River Valley High School Class Size: 135 Farm: Branders Dairy Farm - 280 milking Registered Holsteins Major: Dairy Science & Life Sciences Communication Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison? When I was choosing colleges I was looking for a well-respected university that would offer me a unique student experience and thoroughly prepare me for a future in an agriculture career. UW-Madison fit all of these criteria. Oh, and I can’t forget – it’s great to be a Badger! What has been your most memorable college experience? One of my most memorable college experiences was working for two years as a World Dairy Expo showring chair with Badger Dairy Club. BDC members do a large part of the behind the scenes work in the ring, building the show and sale arenas, maintaining them throughout the week, and taking them down. What has been your favorite course? My favorite dairy science course so far was Dairy Herd Management, a class that brings in experts from the industry to teach about a variety of topics related to dairy science such as milk quality, calf health, nutrition, financial management, housing, and other important subjects. This class gave me a variety of specific knowledge in a hands-on way through field trips and group projects. What are your future career goals? When I graduate in the spring I want to transition into a career in the dairy industry that will allow me to serve farmers on a day to day basis. Growing up on a farm, it’s easy to see that farmers are the backbone of the agriculture industry, and I would like to be part of the support team that helps them succeed. I am interested in areas such as nutrition, financial management, and sales.

Marcis-View Farms


2009 Marcis-View Farms traces its origin to a farm at the western base of Rib Mountain in the city of Marathon, Wis. Charles and Donna Marcis purchased the farm in 1970, and one year later began milking with the purchase of ten grade springing heifers from a local cattle jockey. Clearing land and picking many, many rocks became their job, with the help of children Steve, Merri, Sherri, and grandparents Carl and Hilda Marcis. The number of animals soon outgrew the low amount of tillable acreage, and a bigger farm was sought out. In 1975 the couple moved to Stratford, Wis., with their family and this location is still the main farm. In 1978, the addition of Registered cattle began with the selection of some animals from the Beckman brother’s herd in Merrill. With the help of purchases of animals from dispersals and sales, natural growth, and the opening of the Holstein USA herdbook, the herd has been completely Registered for almost twenty years. After graduating from UW-River Falls in 1988, and working at the UW-Marshfield Agricultural Research Station for four and a half years, Steve married Sarah in 1992 and one year later purchased the farm from Charles and Donna. In 1998, research of parlors took place with the intention of milking in a minimal-sized parlor to ease the physical stress of milking, yet still continuing to be a family farm. But with the untimely death of Steve’s mother Donna in February of 1999, priorities were realigned and the “expansion” did not take place. Although a second farm five miles away was purchased in 2003, where Charles and wife Eleanore reside currently, the number of milk cows, sixty, has not fluctuated since the mid-1980’s. Today, Steve and Sarah, plus their five children - Andrew, 17, Alayne, 14, Audree, 13, Annica, 10, and Angela, 6 - along with help from Charles and Sarah’s parents, Lloyd and Mary Schultz, operate the farms consisting of sixty cows and 300 tillable acres. Crops grown include alfalfa, corn, and soybeans. In most years, some of the crops provided a nice buffer as cash crops. After getting a couple of bulls into stud, the breeding philosophy remains the same at Marcis-View: high production out of cows that are easy to milk, and a simple concentration on longevity. The Marcis family would like to thank the Marathon County Holstein Breeders for partnering with us to make this ad possible.

With all the genomic talk and index breeding, we still breed for type and get the numbers WE like. Our June 2011 classification gave us our very first BAA, which now stands at 102.7%. Our low cull rate of 22% has enabled us to fill our new freestall barn in less than a year. Now that’s our definition of productive life! We are excited about the next phase in our expansion plan, which includes a new milking facility featuring a Double 8 Bou-Matic herringbone parlor. We hope to be settled in by November and look forward to hanging up our milking stools! The future looks very bright at Goers Family Dairy!

Thank you! Summer has coming to an end and so has this internship. It has been a great summer filled with all sorts of adventures. My summer started out with cow camp - this was quite possibly my favorite event of the summer. It was a great chance for the campers to make new friends and learn about our industry. My next events were the District Shows. These events taught me to be organized and to roll with the punches. I definitely developed my sense of direction when traveling to these shows; my first three shows took me from Luxemburg to Ellsworth and then back to Manitowoc. It was such a huge honor to see so many amazing cows throughout the state. My next event was State Show where I learned all about ultrasounding udders. It is something that I will definitely be sharing with my students this fall. Finally, the time came for State Fair and the Futurity. It was the 25th Anniversary of the Futurity and we had a great turnout of twenty-one outstanding Holsteins. It was great to see all of my planning finally come together in this event. This summer has flown by and now it is time for me to start thinking about lesson plans and student teaching. It has been a great summer and I enjoyed working with each and every one of you. I would like to thank everyone that helped make this such a wonderful experience. Michelle Heeg WHA Summer Intern

ACKY WPoint of View Editor’s Comments

Welcome to another jam-packed Midwest Holsteins issue! Along with some terrific ads from breeders all over the upper Midwest, we’ve got all the State Fair and Futurity show results from this past August. This is a great issue to hand out at our booth at World Dairy Expo because it showcases some of the great things happening with Wisconsin Holsteins. If you’ve picked this issue up at WDE and would like to become a regular subscriber, please visit our website at or give our office a call at 1-800-223-4269. Included in this issue is the entry form for the 2014 Futurity. Entries for $35 are due January 1, but if you miss that deadline late entries will be accepted until April 30, 2012 at $50 per entry. This year’s Futurity was the 25th Anniversary show and it was truly a special event - with several past dignitaries joining us in West Allis and 21 fantastic 3-Year-Old cows parading through the show ring. You can read all about it starting on page 10. The entry deadline for our Cover Contest is approaching. If you have a “Family” photo you’d like to submit, please mail me a high quality print (5x7 or larger) or email a 300 dpi or higher version to The “Family” theme can apply to your favorite cow family, your favorite farm family or a combination of both! Please give me a call or email with any questions. Our November issue will be our AI issue and this year we will be featuring International Protein Sires. You can see the special rates and discounts being offered for the November issue on page 37 of the Midwest Holsteins section. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. As the fall progresses, the WHA Communications Committee will be meeting to plan next year’s feature issues.
