Hello Fellow Holstein Enthusiasts! The summer heat has come and gone, as we move onto the fall time of year. This certainly means cooler weather, harvesting crops, and Expo is quickly upon us. What’s not to love about this time of year? However, as we look back, this summer has been filled with an exhilarating amount of Wisconsin Holstein Association events. We simply could not have ended the summer on a more rewarding time than the Wisconsin State Fair. A large ‘Congratulations’ goes to everyone who participated in the open show, Futurity or in the largest junior dairy show in the country. I hope many of you were able to make the Wisconsin Holstein Association picnic that took place at the astounding Budjon Farms in Lomira! This state is so fortunate to have world-class breeders and care takers right here in Wisconsin. Their hospitability was magnificent, as it was a day filled with astonishing facilities and phenomenal cows! A huge ‘Thank you’ to Budjon Farms & ABC St. Jacobs for their warm welcoming. October brings Expo so best of luck to all the exhibitors participating in this year’s show. If you are not parading across the colored shavings, be sure to come to World Dairy Expo regardless - as this is an exhilarating time to meet industry people, visit the World-Class trade show geared towards dairy farming and watch the best dairy show in the world. Award forms were due September 15th, for 12 & Under, YDJM and DJM. For those of you who are interested, do not miss out on the opportunity to participate in the WHA Royalty Application, Junior Farm Tour Award, WHY friend Award, Junior Progressive Breeder Award, Essay Contest, Speaking Contest, Dairy Jeopardy and Dairy Bowl, as they are all due November 15th.

It is not required to attend in order to apply however this session will certainly help give you a better idea of what the role fully entails and is lots of fun! ’Til our next cup of tea! Kayla Krueger

From your President Chris McCullough Dear Wisconsin Holstein members, As I write this column summer seems to be a distant memory as it was 39 degrees this morning witch means fall seems to be in full swing or as many of us call it “Expo Weather.” I certainly hope everyone gets a chance to see the brand new barns at this year’s World Dairy Expo. As many of you know, these barns will also be our new home for both our Midwest Spring National and the Wisconsin Championship Show for at least the next three years. I’d also like to encourage you to make a point to stop at our booth in the lower level of the coliseum while you’re at Expo as well. Next year will be the 125th anniversary of the Wisconsin Holstein Association. Paula Bovre, our Vice President, is chairing this committee and they have put together several different activities and promotional items. Please check them out as more information becomes available. Just as a reminder that the WHA Younger Breeder and Distinguished Breeder award forms are due soon. You can download all of these forms from our website. I hope everyone has a safe and successful harvest season. Chris McCullough

FROM THE FIELD By Sarah Trapp, Holstein USA Regional Field Rep As we all know, when the fall harvest is approaching time is valuable, so anything that can help save time is a blessing. If you currently use genetic data and genomics in your herd, then be sure to check out Enlight. Enlight is a new management tool designed to help Holstein producers effectively manage their genetics. Enlight is a web-based program, accessible on a computer or tablet, and is the result of an alliance between Holstein Association USA and Zoetis. This program makes the process of obtaining and utilizing your genetic data quick and efficient. There is no charge to enroll in Enlight, therefore any producer who has genomic tested an animal is eligible to use the program. All genomic samples submitted by Enlight users will be analyzed using Clarifide, a DNA-marker technology for optimizing selection and management of dairy animals. If you have questions about Enlight or would like to enroll, please contact Chris Lyons at 920.723.2406, Dennis Devore at 319.270.5038, or me at 608.628.1978.

Johnson Holsteins The Johnson Family, Baldwin by Ashley Yager

The Johnson Family - front, left to right: Bob, Nancy, Krista holding Mckinley, Brad and Jessica; back: Matt, Ashley and Pat addition to add another 70 freestalls to the barn. Through the expansion process, the family has been able to grow their herd numbers internally, largely through the number of heifer calves born through the last few years. The Johnsons averaged a 70% heifer rate through two years, without the use of sexed semen. The herd now has an rolling herd average of 23,000 pounds of milk, and is scored every seven months. The Registered Holstein portion of the family farm was brought into play when brothers Matt and Brad decided to explore a new business ometimes all it takes to get a great start in the Registered Holstein venture. Their first purchase with the help of mentor Steve Berland was business are outstanding mentors and a little bit of luck.

Carabella, a Shottle sister to Constance, with a 2-05 2x record at 305 days of 24,500 milk with 4.5% 1050 fat and 3.1% 763 protein, was purchased at a holiday ET sale and has been a marketing machine for Matt and Brad. Of her five Bookem daughters, one sold to Genex by way of the National Convention Sale, and another to a breeder in Minnesota through the International Intrigue. The three that remain on the farm are all fresh in their first lactation, and scored GP-83, GP-84 and VG-85, respectively. The highest scoring daughter, Matcrest Bookem Coastal-ET, has sons in AI and embryos in Holland. Matcrest Bookem Cookie-ET, GP-84, also has a few sons headed to AI, and her daughters are being flushed to Supersire and Olegant. Schillview M-O-M Genally-ET, VG-86 DOM with +2125 GTPI, +544 NM$ and +2.12 PTAT, is another individual making waves. With sons by Tango (+2464 GTPI) and Predestine (+2442 GTPI) in AI, Johnsons are also flushing her +2390 Platinum daughter, a +2250 McCutchen daughter, a +2370 Balisto daughter and a +2350 Supersire daughter. Genally is a Man-O-Man from a Jet Stream that at 2-05 2x and 305 days produced 27,060 milk with 3.9% 1054 fat and 3.3% 893 protein. Genally’s Goldchip daughter is just fresh and is garnering interest from AI studs, with a +2467 GTPI Balisto and +2462 GTPI Supersire son in AI. Genally herself has sons over +2350 GTPI at ABS, and is an outstanding transmitter. In fact, one of her Supersire sons is almost +2500 GTPI. Finally, the Johnsons have also invested in the Planet Silk family, with Dymentholm Sunview Shar-ET, an Epic with +2218 GTPI, +656 NM$ and +2.26 PTAT. Shar is the dam of the number two Red GTPI bull at +2350, and her embryos have gone to Europe. She is due early this winter to Tatum (Uno x Colby). With the success of marketing high genomic females, it’s no wonder the semen inventory at the Johnson farm has sires like Silver, Powerball, Yoder, Monterey, Oktoberfest, Delta and Draco. The Johnsons are using 100% genomic semen, focusing primarily on GTPI, net merit, milk and protein to fit their buyer’s demands. They also try to focus on sires that are over +2.00 PTAT, UDC and FLC. In the freestall environment, they favor a smaller, more rugged cow that works better in their operation while still maintaining a good blend of type for good-looking individuals. The Johnsons have been utilizing IVF through Trans Ova the last six months to make females from their high profile cows. They now IVF or flush 6-10 females a month. The Johnsons have some older favorites in the herd sired by Sandy, Shamrock and Durham, while some of their good young cows are from Bookem, Iota, Facebook and Massey. Heifer pens feature daughters by Supersire, Headliner, Large, Jackman, Platinum and Uno. Matt credits some fellow dairymen for helping spark his interest in high-profile genetics. Initially, Marv Johnson and Fritz Larson lit the flame, and when Matt met Jon Larson it was ‘all over.’ The Johnson family, even with 300 milking head, remains a family owned and operated farm, and Matt says they hope to stay that way. They own all of their equipment and only purchase heifer hay when it’s needed, with all other crops raised. Nancy has done an outstanding job raising calves. All heifer calves are raised on site, and with growing numbers from IVF and flush calves, the Johnsons are looking to expand on their calf barn in the near future. They utilize mattresses and sawdust bedding in their freestall barn. Matt and Brad have had a great amount of success marketing their cattle through word of mouth and building relationships with customers and fellow producers. They are in an ideal location for those traveling to World Dairy Expo from Minneapolis, just off of Interstate 94. They have a great relationship with Paul Trapp of ABS Global, and believe strongly in taking photos of heifers they are marketing. The farm has also had success in its diversity, with the ability to market some extra crops along with the elite genetics. With a great start in the Registered Holstein business, the Johnson brothers are set to run a solid, profitable operation so that future generations can continue the success laid before them. As a family owned farm, the Johnsons all have a voice in the operation, which has come a long way from its 44 Guernsey cow beginning.

2014 Wisconsin State Fair

Junior State Fair July 31 & August 1 • West Allis, WI

The Wisconsin Junior State Fair Holstein show was held on Thursday, July 31 and Friday, August 1 at the State Fair Park in West Allis. Judge Nathan Thomas of North Lewisburg, Ohio, and Associate Judge Ryan Weigel of Platteville, Wis., placed a total of 463 head of Holsteins over the two day show, including 227 calves, 197 yearlings and 39 cows. The Red & White show had a total of 79 head. Following a deep calf show on Thursday, Judges Thomas and Weigel chose Siemers Defnt Great-Red-ET exhibited by Vanessa Roberts of Whitelaw as Calf Champion. Reserve Calf Champion was Siemers Wood Ashlynn-ET exhibited by Jake Siemers of Kiel. Judge Thomas commented that it was a great calf show and that he had pulled out the four heifers that were most like his kind. His champion was a pretty calf that is angular throughout with enough width. She was also prettier through the head and neck and cleaner in the bone in her hock. The reserve champion excelled because of her frame, along with being wider through the front end and having more drop to the rib. The yearling show started bright and early Friday morning. Selected as Champion of the yearling show was a summer yearling, Petitclerc Windbrk Frimouss exhibited by Jake Siemers of Kiel and Reserve Champion was Eva Doornink’s fall yearling, Craigcrest Rejoices Recofir-ET. Judge Thomas selected the summer yearling as champion because of her hard topline, long and lean neck and because she holds herself together better than the winter yearling. He went on to say he preferred the head and neck of the reserve champion along with having more cleanliness throughout over the honorable mention. Roberts’ Calf Champion was also named Junior Champion and Siemers’ summer yearling was named Reserve Junior Champion.

After a short break, the Holstein cows entered the ring. Judge Thomas selected Milksource Durham Giggle-ET exhibited by Chloe Vosters of Freedom as Senior and Grand Champion. Reserve Champion went to Bella-Ridge Gin Blossom-ET exhibited by Darren Kamphuis of Brandon. Judge Thomas appreciated the senior three-year-old’s dairyness and commented that she was a little more dairy, cleaner and more open throughout. He appreciated the reserve champion’s beautiful, powerful frame and said she was just a little more cow and had a higher, wider rear udder attachment than the honorable mention. For the second year, a separate Red & White show was held with an

increase in total head shown. Selected as Junior Champion by Judge Thomas was Berryridge Defian Merlo-Red exhibited by Lizi Endres of Waunakee. Reserve Champion was Booth-Haven Clasy Lady-Red exhibited by Cole Booth, Plymouth. Judge Thomas commented that the summer yearling was extremely dairy and didn’t have a lot of holes while he admired the width, strength and substance all the way through of the winter yearling. Grand Champion of the Red & White Show was Sellcrest S Candy Apple-Red exhibited by Andrew Sell, Watertown. Reserve Champion went to Jenna Olson, Edgerton, with Hi-Val Absolt Fantastic-Red. The showmanship contest was held on Saturday with almost 500 youth taking part in the different age groups. Several Wisconsin Junior Holstein members won their respective age groups, with Valerie Kramer being named the overall Supreme Champion Showman. Congratulations to all the youth that participated at the State Fair and thank you to the many farms and individuals that sponsored the first and second place trophies for the Holstein Show.

MilkSource Genetics & Seisme Make History

History was made September 16 at MilkSource Genetics, Kaukauna. Blondin Redman Seisme-Red is the first classified EX-97 Red & White Holstein ever. Holstein Association USA upgraded her classification to the extremely rare and extraordinary EX-97. Only 29 cows ever have reached this pinnacle, all of which were Black & Whites, according to DairyCowDaily. “Seisme has been a special cow from day one,” said Jim Ostrom, MSG co-partner. “It has been a privilege for Herd Manager Jamie Endvick and the entire team at MilkSource Genetics to work with, and care for, such an extraordinary beauty.” To put the win into context, Cy Letter, technical supervisor for Holstein Association USA, explained, “There have been about 200 million cows in the history of modern breeding, and Seisme is No. 30 to reach this level. She is also the first-ever Red & White.” In 2013, Seisme was International Red and White Cow of the Year by Holstein International, one of the most prestigious honors in the show cow world. In addition, Seisme has been named: • International R&W Cow of the Year, Holstein International, 2013 • Supreme Champion, Royal Winter Fair, 2012 • Unanimous All-American Aged Cow, 2012 • All-Canadian Senior Cow, 2012 • 1st Aged Cow and Grand Champion, R&W Royal Winter Fair, 2012 • 1st Aged Cow and Grand Champion, Int'l R&W Show, 2012 • Sr. and Grand Champion, Best Udder, Midwest National Spring Show, 2012 • 1st aged cow, Midwest National Spring Show, 2012 • Res.

Old, Royal Winter Fair R&W Show, 2008 • Honorable Mention All-Canadian Junior R&W Cow, 2008 Her sire was Valleyriver Ruben Redman and her dam was Blondin R Marker Supra VG-89-3YR-CAN. “Seisme is a work of wonder for Mother Nature, but we’re very proud of all the men and women at MilkSource Genetics who work behind the scenes to take care of her,” said John Vosters, MSG co-partner. “These are people who are passionate about their cows. It’s not a job to them - it’s a passion.”

NATIONAL DIRECTOR’S REPORT Dear Holstein Breeders, The Holstein Association held its 129th annual meeting in Dubuque, Iowa. As national directors, we want to thank our Iowa friends for hosting a wonderful convention. We also look forward to attending the 2015 National Convention in St. Charles, Illinois, next year. As those who attended this year’s convention, or have read the recent Holstein Pulse already know, the Holstein Association co-launched Enlight - a web-based program designed to track Holstein genetics. The branded product with Holstein Association USA and Zoetis will not only greatly assist current Holstein breeders, but also help us partner with new herds who want to upgrade the genetics in their herd. Having viewed the program firsthand as national directors, we can attest that this may be the best program ever developed at 1 Holstein Place. The web-based portal is updated daily and gives breeders unprecedented access to their genetic information on their milking herd and young stock. In fact, new genomic results will be uploaded the day that they are available to the industry. Also, spreadsheets can be created and uploaded into your herd management software program. By using the Enlight dashboard, breeders can view genetic reports and analytics for more intense management. Additionally, breeders can benchmark progress and design selection and breeding strategies. The web-based portal is a big deal. No more CDs and updates to your computer. You can order genomic tests and register cattle directly from Enlight. Likewise, Zoetis customers can order genomic tests and each animal will be enrolled in the Holstein database at the entry identification level known as Basic ID or as registered animals (whatever the qualifier). The joint partnership between Holstein and Zoetis could even result in the field representatives partnering on the same farm to consult on a herd’s genetics. If you can’t tell by now, we are excited about the Enlight product. Talk to one of us at World Dairy Expo and we’d be happy to share more or stop by the Holstein Association booth to learn more. As far as Association activity goes, Holstein Complete is showing steady growth through late July as cows were up 4 percent compared to the same time last year and herds were up 9. Registrations are up 3 percent, while Basic ID grew a remarkable 55 percent or 168,000 head. There will be a new Total Performance Index (TPI) that will feature a

new fertility index and a feed efficiency rating. The new TPI formula will debut in December 2014 to coincide with the December 2014 genetic update and base change where PTAs (predicted transmitting abilities) will be rolled back to a 2010 base. The new fertility index will be comprised of three major components: 18 percent heifer conception rate (HCR), 18 percent cow conception rate (CCR) and 64 percent daughter pregnancy rate (DPR). The good news is we are making progress on fertility. From 1995 to 2000, pregnancy rates in cows slid back -0.27 percent; from 2000 to 2005, fertility held steady at -0.02; and in the latest five-year window, there was a +0.21 improvement. With the addition of this index and raising the emphasis to 13 percent of the TPI formula, we hope to make even more progress. (The prior TPI formula weighted fertility at 11 percent.) To make room for the extra emphasis, 2 points were taken away from productive life (PL) and that will now carry a weight of 7 percent. The addition of the feed efficiency index involves a formula that calculates the “Dollar value of milk produced.” It then subtracts “feed costs of the extra milk” and “extra maintenance costs.” To make room for the feed efficiency index, type or PTAT will go from 10 to 8 percent, while selection emphasis for udders will move from 12 to 11 percent. Hence, feed efficiency will make its first entry to the TPI formula at 3 percent. How will this new TPI formula work on the farm? In studying the new formula, Tom Lawlor divided the top half of the breed’s cows that averaged 1700 TPI into one group and the bottom half that averaged 1448 TPI into another group. Here’s what he found: • The top half earned $159 more profit per lactation through extra feed efficiency. • The top half had 9.2 fewer days open. • The top half were +2.2 points higher for final score; +2.3 on udders and +2.9 feet and legs. • The new TPI formula will also slow the rate of stature increase. At the end of the day, the new TPI formula will be 46 percent production, 26 percent conformation (type), 13 percent fertility, 12 percent health and longevity, and 3 percent calving traits. Lastly, if you have ideas that would benefit our Association or concerns you would like to voice, give us a call. Your National Directors, Paul Buhr Dale Drendel Corey Geiger Mark Kerndt

Angie resulted from an AI contracted flush. She has one fancy full sister milking. Angie is due early November to Tango. She combines high production and health traits with a deep pedigree. Her dam was a G+ 83 2yr old Planet with a VG udder that we lost after her 2nd calf. The 2nd dam was a VG 85 Oman with a high VG udder. The next dam was sold after calving and not scored on her new farm. Behind her are 8 generations of Excellent cows from the Betty Family - close relation to Olmar Durham Bella 4E 93.

Norrie was pronounced pregnant and due in April at 10-05. She barely ages. Maybe she has one more run left in her. In answer to our “Will she make it?” ad, Nor-Way-Pete Mathie Jazzmin EX-90 finished her lifetime with 401,128 lbs. of milk. Not a show cow, not a genetic giant, but 8 tanker loads of milk in her lifetime pays a lot of bills.

CRESTWOOD FARM Crestwood Farm is celebrating 25 years in business in 2014. Loren and Anita Birkey and their 5-year-old son Jordan moved from Amboy, Indiana to Wausau, Wisconsin in the spring of 1989. Loren had been renting his home farm and managing the Lane-Crest herd since 1981. Prior to that, Loren was a sales rep for MABC-Select Sires in Central Wisconsin and then later became the first full-time evaluator in northern Wisconsin for Select Sires. It was during this time Loren met Anita Oberg from Marshfield. In November of 1980 they were married. In 1993 the Birkeys had a milking herd dispersal that averaged $2840. Loren went back to work for Select in 1994 and retired in January of 2010. Returning to the farm full-time, the decision was made to start milking again in November 2011. The current herd consists of 40 cows, many of which Anita & Loren Birkey trace back to two Gold Medal Dams bred in Indiana, LaneCrest C-Matt Birdie 3E-91 and Lane-Crest Bell Rex Dolly EX-92. The star of today’s herd is Crestwood Shottle Belle EX, an eighth generation homebred VG or EX, who traces back 50 years to Loren’s first 4-H animal. Belle has two Durham daughters.

Lane-Crest C-Matt Birdie EX-91 3E

Lane-Crest Bell Rex Dolly EX-92

Crestwood Farm consists of 280 acres with 240 tillable. The main crops are soybeans, alfalfa and corn and cows are pastured during the summer. The Birkey family consists of Loren, Anita, Jordan and his wife Holly and their children, Bryghton (6) and Lorelei (3), as well as Loren and Anita’s younger son Trevor. Anita is a respiratory therapist at Aspirus-Wausau Hospital. She has also played piano and keyboard for many years at Highland Community Church in Wausau. Jordan served 11 years in the U.S. Air Force and was the Director of Satellite Communications for Europe. His family was based in Germany for seven years. Jordan left the Air Force in 2012. He has a degree in Electrical Engineering and is working as a mechanical engineer at Curwood Industries in New London, Wisconsin, where he and his family reside. Trevor graduated with highest honors from UW-La Crosse with a degree in Biochemistry. He will be entering medical school next summer. Trevor enjoys playing guitar, drums and singing, and was a worship leader for Campus Crusade for Christ while at La Crosse. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our many friends who helped us maintain our herd during the years when we were not actively dairying, especially Karl and Barb Wogsland. We also say thanks to Doug and Mary Urban, who told us about the availability of the farm we now call home. We appreciate Marathon County Holstein Association for sponsoring this page and ask that you continue to follow our herd through our ads in the Marathon County section.

Char-La Don Holsteins - Supreme “A family that shows together grows together” - the same can be said for a family that farms together! The Telgmann family, including parents Don and Kim and their three daughters - Allison (23), Jessica (20) and Olivia (16) work closely together as they operate their family farm. “Our farm is a family operation. Everyone is involved,” shares Kim Telgmann of Char-La-Don Holsteins. Telgmann Dairy was established back in the 1900s by Erwin Telgmann near Strasburg, Illinois in Shelby County. 2014 Illinois State Fair Junior Show Supreme Champion - O-Kop Logan Adriann-EX-90 Telgmann Dairy began as a Guernsey farm. They milked Guernseys until late 1957 when they built a milking parlor and the Guernsey herd was dispersed. They were replaced with grade Holsteins. The parlor was the second milking parlor in Shelby County at the time. Erwin’s son Gene was then married to Helen Miller. Around 1970 when Gene and Helen’s children joined 4-H, the first Registered Holsteins were purchased to show at the county fair and called Telgmann Dairy their new home. Today, the herd is 100% Registered Holsteins and consists of 65 head that are still milked in the original parlor that has received several updates. To date, the herd has a rolling herd average of 21,000 pounds of milk. The cows are housed in a free stall barn with sand bedding and are fed free choice hay along with a TMR mixture. Telgmann Dairy, also known as Char-La-Don Holsteins, is a family operation and all of the work is mostly done by family. The farm has been passed down from Erwin to Gene who in turn passed it down to his son, Don. Gene and Don farmed together for many years until 1996 O-Kop Logan Adriann EX-90 EX-MS when Gene and Helen built a home in town and Don and his wife Kim Logan x EX-90 Sept Storm x EX-92-2E Counselor moved to the farm. Kim along with Don’s sister Charlene handle much Show Results of the milking. Don and Kim’s daughters, Allison, Jessica and Olivia, Supreme Champion Illinois State Fair 2014 have grown up to enjoy helping on the farm as well and actively help Res. Grand Champion Illinois State Fair Junior Show 2013 with various chores at different times. Helen, Don’s mother, has always HM Senior Champion Mid-East Fall National Show 2013 lent a helping hand in running the girls to any activities while the chores were being done and Gene, Don’s father, still helped as much as possible until his death in March of 2009. When asked about their breeding philosophy at Char-La-Don Holsteins, Don shares, “Our breeding philosophy has always been for production, but has changed to be more for type in recent years since the Telgmann girls have been bitten by the SHOW BUG!!” Allison, Jessica and Olivia have shared the love of the show spotlight and have been quite successful, especially in recent years. The hard work and dedication that they put in at home has paid off in the show ring with the champion banners that have found their way home to Char-La-Don Holsteins. A few highlights include winning Supreme Champion of the 2014 Schluter Roy Leann EX-94-2E Roy x Durham x EX-91 Leduc Show Results Grand Champion Illinois State Fair Junior Show 2008


Dreams Coming True! Illinois State Fair Junior Show, Supreme Champion Land of Lincoln at Illinois State Fair a couple times and receiving Junior AllAmerican nominations for three of their cows over the years. One of the early “show-stoppers” was Schluter Roy Leann EX-94-2E. Sired by Roylane Jordan, Leann was named Grand Champion of the 2008 Illinois State Fair Junior Holstein Show and this was their first time having the opportunity to show for Supreme Champion. Don shares that this was the most memorable moment because his dad was at the fair. He had been battling cancer and was so proud to be at the fair that year! The Telgmann family is very excited to share that they will be selling the first offering from Leann on this year’s Illini Golden Opportunity Sale on October 25th in Effingham! Selling will be Leann’s Dempsey Fall Calf, Char-LaDon Dempsey Lavish. More recently, gracing the shows has been O-Kop Logan Adriann EX-90 EX-MS. Adriann was named Reserve Grand Champion of the Illinois State Fair Junior Holstein Show and Honorable Mention Senior Champion of the Mid-East Fall National Holstein Show in 2013. Adriann, sired by Ehrhardt Logan, is backed by an EX-90 September Storm, then an EX-92-2E Counselor. She returned to the show ring in 2014 where she claimed the title of Supreme Champion of the Illinois State Fair Junior Show. Another favorite, Luck-E Goldwyn Amber EX-90 EX-MS has achieved much success in

the show ring. Sired by the World Dairy Expo Premier Sire, Braedale Goldwyn, Amber was destined for show ring success! Her dam is an EX-94-3E Outside and her grand-dam is an EX90-2E Black Ice. Amber was selected as the Grand Champion of the Illinois State Fair Junior Show in 2013 and was also named Supreme Champion of the DuQuoin State Fair Junior and Open Shows. She reclaimed her DuQuoin State Fair Supreme Champion title in 2014. Not only is showing a passion for Jessica Telgmann, but dairy judging has also become Luck-E Goldwyn Amber EX-90 EX-MS a passion and certainly Goldwyn x EX-94-3E Outside x EX-90-2E Black Ice one that she excels at. Show Results Supreme Champion DuQuoin County Fair 2014 Jessica began her college Supreme Champion DuQuoin County Fair 2013 career at Kaskaskia Junior Grand Champion Illinois State Fair Junior Show 2013 College where she was on the dairy judging team.

We continue to strive for breeding these animals to continue this quality all throughout our herd!” shares Don Telgmann.

The Greek Goddess Athena is known as the Goddess of courage, inspiration, and strength. Although her name is the slightest bit different, Athiena is the Goddess of our farm. I would like to extend a huge thank you to Todd Wendorf of Crecentmead Holsteins for his dedication to helping develop a stylish, top producing cow while we awaited a new barn. The opportunity to show such a phenomenal homebred cow has given our family the courage and strength in the rebuilding process, and has been my inspiration to continue the legacy of Ehrke Farms.

Minnesota Holstein Association Breeder Profile

By: Jill Butterfass, Interim Executive Secretary

Overall Breeding Goals: I use a practical breeding strategy. Breed for medium sized cows with functional type with the will to milk. I strive for real cows competing in real environments. Which cow family has had the most impact on your operation? Johnan Toystory Glitter has had the most impact here at Zahbulls Holsteins. We tested her and she went up over 300 TPI points. Her offspring has gone on to produce some of the highest genomically tested bulls in the world including Alta 1st Class.

Emily, Jeston, Ruby & Matt Zabel

Name: Matt Zabel, Zahbulls Holsteins, LLC Plainview, Minn. Operation information: We farm 530 acres of corn and alfalfa. We’re milking 195 cows 3 times a day in a double 5 parabone parlor. The cows are housed in sand bedded freestalls and we have 180 youngstock. I oversee and manage everything on the dairy while Emily feeds calves and keeps social media and our website information up to date. Be sure to find us and ‘Like’ us on Facebook. My dad, Tim, is the crop manager and helps wherever needed on the farm. Lactation Average (RHA): 28,708 lbs. Feeding Program: We feed a TMR mix of corn silage, balage, haylage, high moisture corn and protein mix.

Johnan Toystory Glitter

Hobbies: I really enjoy snowmobiling. Whether it be locally, in the UP of Michigan or in the Big Horn Mountains it’s one of my favorite things to do. Unique component of operation: Having started with a commercial herd background focused on good genetics, getting into registered Holsteins was a smooth transition for us while never losing sight of production. How did you get started with registered Holsteins? While attending UW-Madison Farm and Industry Short Course, I went to the Badger Invitational Sale and my interest sparked from there. With the support of my father, we started registering our herd and started looking into acquiring other Holsteins with breed leading genetics.

Holstein USA Elite Performers

For a cow to qualify for the Elite PerformerTM award, she must meet the following criteria to be considered: • complete at least three lactations in a herd participating in Holstein Association USA's TriStar program, completing the most recent lactation in the previous calendar year • 87% RHA or higher and classified VG-85 or higher Eligible cows across the country are ranked based on pounds of combined fat and protein per day in milk. The top one percent receive the National Elite Performer award. Those National Elite Performers are then removed from consideration and the top one percent of eligible cows from each of the nine regions are honored as Regional Elite Performers. All cows currently enrolled in TriStarSM are automatically evaluated annually. Elite Performer recognition is a lifetime award and is printed on a cow’s pedigree, found underneath her milk production records. Read more about the Elite Performer award in the recent issue of the Holstein Pulse.

UW-Madison Dairy Science Department Invites Prospective Students to Visit Day on October 31

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Dairy Science invites prospective students and their parents to visit campus on Friday, October 31 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to explore what the program has to offer. High school seniors and transfer students are encouraged to attend. Those attending will get a firsthand look at one of the world’s leading dairy science departments as they tour the UW-Madison campus and Dairy Cattle Center, meet faculty, participate in hands-on workshops and learn about the wide variety of learning opportunities available to dairy science majors. Current students and alumni will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences. The undergraduate dairy science program at UW-Madison emphasizes a combination of cutting-edge, science-based knowledge and hands-on experience. Award-winning research and extension faculty teach more than 20 undergraduate courses covering nutrition, reproduction, mammary physiology, genetics and other aspects of dairy management. On-campus, state-of-the art dairy facilities enhance the learning experience. “I always encourage prospective students to make campus visits so they can be confident in their college decision,” says Kent Weigel, professor and chair of the dairy science department. “Students are often amazed by the small-school feel of our ag campus and the extra benefits they get studying at a Big Ten university. Our proximity to the heart of the dairy industry along with our college’s true commitment to dairy are what separate our dairy science experience from others.” For UW-Madison admission eligibility, it is recommended that seniors rank in the top 25 percent of their high school class. Transfer students must have completed at least 24 semester hours of college-level work. Most transfer students have a GPA of at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. To attend the Dairy Science Visit Day, please register on-line by October 27 at For more information, contact Cathy Rook at (608) 263-3308 or

The Showcase, designed to highlight the department’s research, extension and instructional efforts, will kick off with a “State of CALS and UW Dairy Science” presentation, followed by talks by faculty members and graduate students on current research initiatives. Participants also will have the opportunity to meet with master’s and doctoral students during a research poster session and help honor undergraduate scholarship recipients during a brief awards ceremony. Kent Weigel, professor and chair of the dairy science department, says the goal of the Showcase is to foster interactions between the department’s campus community and its alumni and industry stakeholders. “We want our alumni and stakeholders to meet our new staff, graduate students and undergrads,” he says. “We also want to recognize those who have helped support our programs by sponsoring research projects, funding scholarships and contributing in countless other ways.” Findings from a $1 million U.S. Department of Agriculture project titled “An Integrated Approach to Improving Dairy Cow Fertility” will be highlighted at the event. Several dairy science faculty have been involved in the collaborative project, which seeks to assess the contributions of various management factors to dairy cow fertility. The researchers are also evaluating the economic impact of reproductive management strategies on overall farm sustainability under a variety of management scenarios. As a steward of public trust and private investment, the UW-Madison dairy science program is committed to providing cutting-edge, science-based knowledge for the industry and unparalleled training to students interested in pursuing careers in the field. The department’s goal is to improve the quality of milk and the efficiency and profitability of its production around the world. To attend the Dairy Science Showcase, please register online by October 26th at Registration is free and covers complementary lunches and an ice cream social for participants. All activities will be held at campus’ Dejope Hall, located at 640 Elm Drive. Parking passes can be purchased when registering for the event.

Thoughts from the 2014 Intern, Ashley Dreier

Being an intern at the Wisconsin Holstein Association allowed me to grow in so many ways. It was a huge learning experience and I was able to gain experience in event planning, computer software, public relations, writing, and communications. I also had the opportunity to attend so many great cattle shows this summer and meet some of the best Holstein breeders. I was able to be a part of a wonderful team while working there and I was able to share my thoughts and ideas and be heard. They make you feel like you belong there and I really appreciated that. My headline event was planning the WHA Futurity show. I had never attended a Futurity show before this year and it was an honor to plan and coordinate one of the most prestigious Holstein Shows in Wisconsin and it was definitely an experience I will never forget. This internship was not only educational and informative but it was also an eye-opener for me since I have always been on the exhibitor side of things at cattle shows and never really knew the other side of things. Now I know what it takes to make cattle shows run and be successful. This internship will give you a taste of different aspects of a job and you can use your own strengths to make this internship fit your interests. Even though this was an internship, it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I had the opportunity to strengthen my communication skills which is one of the most important things you need in order to be successful in the agriculture industry. You get the opportunity to visit and talk to so many different people whether it’s at a cattle show, planning the Futurity, or when you’re interviewing a dairy farmer for a breeder profile. What I enjoyed most besides attending the cattle shows and seeing all the phenomenal Holsteins, was hearing what other Holstein breeders had to say and how they are successful at what they do. It was very inspirational, especially when you get to see their hard work pay off. I would highly recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in working in Communications because it’s an opportunity you will gain so much experience from.

2014 John Klossner Trophy Winner

Jessica Pralle of Humbird, Wis., was awarded the first John Klossner Trophy at this year’s Wisconsin Junior State Fair. This award was created to recognize the overall winner of the Junior Dairy Premier Exhibitor Contest at WI Junior State Fair. The contest covers four events: judging, quiz, skillathon and showmanship. These contests take place over several days during State Fair, with winners in each segment recognized with an overall winner. John excelled in this competition and had been the high individual in the judging and skillathon portions of the contest before his accident at the 2013 fair. With this honor, Jessica received a traveling trophy, custom designed to create a fitting representation of the contest and tribute to John. Jessica is the 19-yearold daughter of Scott and Pam Pralle. She grew up on a 450-cow Registered Holstein dairy and has been hooked on the show ring since age four, when she lead her first little britches calf through the ring. She is a sophomore this fall at UW-Madison, where she is studying dairy science.
