In honor of Geraldine Cooper

Hello Everyone! The harvest season is in full swing and hopefully yields are plentiful and that mother nature has cooperated. 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the greatest dairy show on earth, World Dairy Expo. This year’s show promises to be one for the ages. We all owe such a massive debt of gratitude to the founders for having the foresight to build and event in our home state that is the international gathering place for dairy enthusiasts. Stop by the WHA booth as the staff will have memorabilia from the previous 49 shows. WHA is proud to be affiliated with Expo and we are currently represented on the Expo board of directors by Paula Bovre. In addition to Paula, Wallace Behnke represented us for years and I want to thank both of them for their service. Wisconsin will be well represented in both the open and junior Holstein shows and best of luck to those that are exhibiting. It may seem like a while from now, but there are many award forms for both adults and juniors that are due by November 15. These include the Junior Trip award, the WHY friend award, the Junior Essay contest as well as Distinguished Breeder and Distinguished Young Breeder awards and the YAC Education award. The award forms can be found on the WHA website or by calling the state office. Both Dane and Calumet counties are actively preparing for the 2017 Junior and Adult conventions so be sure to get those dates on your calendar. The Junior Convention will be in Wisconsin Dells at the Glacier Canyon Lodge, January 8-10, 2017. The Adult Convention will be held February 24-25 at the Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton. Again I hope that your fall is fruitful and safe and look forward to seeing you throughout the fall. Go Pack Go! KJ

Thoughts from the 2016 Intern, Jessica Steger

I cannot believe this summer is over! I never imagined on the first day of walking into the office that I would experience so many different things this summer. All of the things I learned and got to do this summer lead me to have an unforgettable experience. This summer was filled with numerous event across our great dairy state. Traveling to many parts of the state allowed me to meet with countless members and their Holsteins at district shows and state show. This summer not only offered me the opportunity to meet our members, but it also allowed me to meet consumers and their children. We had two events this summer geared toward youth, Kids Express Learning Center’s “Dairy Day” and a library visit with a cow and calf. Bringing a cow and calf into a library was definitely something I did not expect on the first day, but it was a great learning experience for all involved. I wrapped up the summer with three weekends of shows, the Wisconsin State Championship Show Series, the Wisconsin Junior State Fair, and the Wisconsin State Fair Open Show and Wisconsin Holstein Association Futurity. It was a busy and incredible three weeks. The 30th annual Wisconsin Holstein Futurity was the most anticipated event of the summer for me. I did not realize the amount of detail that went into the Futurity until I was in the middle of coordinating it. I never would have guessed it would take ten trips to different stores just for ribbon. I am excited to say that in the end we had 17 three-year-olds competing for the top prize. I want to first and foremost thank the staff at WHA for all of their patience and help along the way. They are truly an invaluable resource to our association, and I cannot thank them enough for everything this summer. I would also like to thank everyone in the association. Meeting and speaking with many of you about our beloved Holsteins was a highlight of my summer. I cannot wait to see many of you again at the shows throughout the coming year. I would also like to thank the WHA Board of Directors and JACs for always being there for a good laugh or offering a helping hand. I would like to thank the Futurity committee for all of their help and dedication. I would finally like to thank Kati Kindschuh and Paige Nelson for the numerous laughs and adventures we shared this summer. I will always remember this opportunity and its numerous lessons.

Preferred Knowledge:

• Excellent communication, writing, organization and time-management practices • Ability to handle multiple tasks at one time with strong prioritization skills • Strong knowledge of PC operating systems (Mac experience a plus) • High level of attention to detail and ability to focus • Strong work ethic with a positive attitude • Knowledge of current trends in the dairy industry

Education and Experience:

• Received their high school diploma • Currently enrolled in a 2 or 4 year University • Experience in the Registered Holstein or dairy industry

2016 Wisconsin State Fair

Holstein Junior Show August 5 & 6 • West Allis, WI

The Wisconsin Junior State Fair Holstein show was held on Thursday and Friday, August 5 and 7 at the Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis. Judge Joey Airosa of Pixley, Cal., and Associate Judge Jeff Brantmeier of Sherwood, Wis., placed a total of 402 head of Holsteins over the two day show, including 214 calves, 159 yearlings and 29 cows. The Red & White show had 74 head participating in that show. Selected as Senior and Grand Champion of the Holstein Show was Mapel Wood Windhammer Elegance exhibited by Whitney Ebert. Reserve Champion went to Siemers Braxton Marabel-ET exhibited by Jake Siemers. Judge Airosa commented that the winning Junior 3-Year-Old was really “on the mark. You have to love that length, the capacity of udder and her great breed character in the front end. She’s one that is going to just keep getting better.” Winning Calf Champion honors was Aaliyah Borchert’s winter calf, Tree-Hayven Integral Declan. Judge Airosa was impressed with the group pulled out for Calf Champion and commented that the winter calf “is a beautifully framed heifer and there’s really not that much wrong with her. She’s so correct, so balanced. She has that great breed character through her head and neck and lots of style and strength.” He gave her the advantage over the Reserve Champion by being a little more correct in the rump structure, but loved the “beautiful framed calf with so much style, that follows the white calf nicely.” Reserve Calf Champion was Budjon-Vail Sid Sydney-ET, also a winter calf, exhibited by Allison Breunig. Jenifer Krull took home Yearling and Junior Champion honors with Craig-Kro Hammer Jammer. Reserve Junior Champion was Roseanne Crave’s spring yearling, Crave Atwood anna 9121-ET, also the Reserve Yearling Champion. Judge Airosa said the group pulled out for Yearling Champion was “the kind I like and are all ones that are sound heifers and are going to make good cows.” He said for champion, “It was splitting hairs, but this fall yearling is one whale of a heifer. She has that width from the tip of her nose all the way to her rear end. She has an advantage over the spring yearling in that she’s a little more powerful in the front end, deeper in the fore rib and a little wider made. But I will grant the spring yearling has the most size and scale for her age out her today.” The showmanship started the dairy show on Thursday with almost 500 youth taking part in the different age groups. Several Wisconsin Junior Holstein members won their respective age groups, with Karlee Ketelboeter 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.

NATIONAL DIRECTOR’S REPORT Dear Holstein Breeders, In June, the center of the Holstein world was in charming Saratoga Springs, New York. Our annual meeting and convention were special in every way, thanks to our great New York hosts. The convention sale was spectacular and the keynote speaker made it clear that the pace of the genetic change will not slow down. Retiring board members were recognized, including our director atlarge, Corey Geiger, from Wisconsin. New directors elected include Peter Dueppengiesser of New York, Steve Keene of Maine, and Benjamin Newberry of Georgia. Iowa’s Mark Kerndt was re-elected to the board. Recognized as the 2016 Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder was Joe Loehr of Calvary, Wisconsin. The Type Committee report was highlighted by the recommendation that stature be de-emphasized by reducing correlations between stature and udder. The Genetic Advancement Committee featured the updated version of the Body Composite Index, which more accurately predicts the body weight of the animal, therefore making the Feed Efficiency Index more precise. A new trait evaluation was launched - Livability. This is the ability of an animal to stay alive and will be displayed as a percentage representing the offspring’s deviation from the average. Being able to sell an animal for salvage versus the time and expense of dealing with dead animals is a significant economic factor. This new trait will be assessed as to its importance and whether it will be included in the TPI formula in the future. The effectiveness of the current TPI formula was displayed in the report, showing that the ranking of cows by CTPI does predict their lifetime profitability. The recent fertility increases in Holsteins was also highlighted. Stature was mentioned by GAC as an issue, with the intent of addressing the rate of increase in stature immediately. Other information included the announcement of a herd audit program that will check herds with high proportions of full-age show animals. The investment in our computer system has begun! We can assure you that it is in the processes of careful planning, which will result in greatly improved speed and service far into the future. The cost is considerable, but a large portion will be covered by our Reserve Fund. The 2017 convention will be held in Belleville, Wash., from June 30 through July 1. This will be the first year that our increased number of delegates allowed will be in effect. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns or ideas about your Holstein Association. Your National Directors, Dale Drendel, Director Mark Kerndt, Director Boyd Schaufelberger, Vice President Paul Buhr, Director

Nutrition Notes... by Ryan Pralle Transition cows are cool. Seriously, at what other point in time does an adult cow undergo so many impactful changes? Cows start as dry, pregnant “couch potatoes” and within a few weeks become high-producing athletes. To facilitate this dynamic transition, a huge, coordinated biological shift occurs throughout a number of systems, including nutrient metabolism, feeding behavior, rumen microbiology, and mammary gland development. However, the multitude of changes puts cows at an increased risk of inadequately coordinating their biology. This can result in all too familiar fresh cow complications like metritis, milk fever, ketosis, fatty liver, and displaced abomasum. All of these health complications have been demonstrated to be detrimental to cow performance and producers’ wallets. The research group that I am part of, led by Dr. Heather White, at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, is fascinated with the physiological changes that occur during the transition period. Particularly, we are interested in the differences between healthy, well-transitioned cows and cows that experience ketosis and fatty liver. These metabolic disorders are considered comorbid, which means that they occur together. This happens in response to the same underlying cause, negative energy balance. Transition cows experience negative energy balance after calving when they are unable to consume enough dietary energy to sustain milk production. With a cow’s energy requirement able to triple after calving, it is common for fresh cows to experience some level of negative energy balance. To adapt, cows will mobilize stored energy, primarily body fat, in order to support milk production. Extreme negative energy balance results in excessive mobilization, which can overwhelm the liver in lipids that need to be metabolized. This can result in the build up of ketone bodies in the blood (ketosis) and the accumulation of fat in the liver (fatty liver). These disorders are particularly difficult to manage because they are predominately subclinical. About 50 percent of dairy cows experience liver fat accumulation. However, a definitive diagnosis can only be achieved by liver fat content analysis of a liver biopsy sample. This makes fatty liver particularly


difficult to evaluate on dairy farms. Ketosis can be monitored routinely with blood BHBA meters, urine and milk strips, and milk powder. However, constant monitoring is time consuming and requires extra animal handling. The work I am part of in Dr. White’s research group is centered on ascertaining the risk individual cows have for these disorders and conveniently identifying cows experiencing them. Our approach is multidisciplinary utilizing innovative methods in the fields of genomics, bioinformatics, advanced statistical modeling, and molecular biology. These new methods will give us insight into the integrated biology behind the progression of these disorders and help dairy producers reduce the labor intensiveness of monitoring fresh cows. Furthermore, it could open doors to implementing targeted, preventative management strategies with fresh cows. If you are interested in the White groups work and the goings on of our lab, visit our labs website: I would also like to invite you to submit any questions you have regarding ketosis, fatty liver, and managing transition cows to Wisconsin Holstein News for us to answer in a future article.

Fustead Holsteins Welcomes Guests for the Wisconsin Holstein Picnic The Brian and Wendy Fust family of Wausau, Wis., welcomed nearly 350 guests for the annual Wisconsin Holstein State Picnic, held Saturday, August 27 at Fustead Holsteins. It was a brisk day, but there was plenty of Holstein enthusiasm through the barns and in the camaraderie of breeders in attendance. The day kicked off with the dairy judging contest and an opportunity for spectators to view some select females from the herd. The Fusts had outstanding daughters by Guthrie, McCutchen, Doorman, AltaOak, Montross, Mogul, Shot Al, Bookem, and more. Visitors could also view the free stall barn, parlor and holding areas.

Dairy judging is strong at the University of Minnesota, so strong that its teams placed first overall in all three of the major contests in 2015: the All-American Dairy Show (Harrisburg, PA), the North American International Livestock Exposition (Louisville, KY), and World Dairy Expo (Madison, WI). They didn’t just win; they won decisively in all three, including an amazing 54-point margin of victory in Madison. This year was just the latest in a string of wins for U of M student teams, who have been consistent top finishers at all the major contests over the past decade. No other university team comes close to this streak. Congratulations! If you’re considering a career in dairy, CONSIDER THE U OF M. In addition to our highly successful judging teams, you can be part of the Gopher Dairy Club, where more than 100 student members gain experience and industry contacts through activities like an all-expense-paid 11-day trip to California in January for seniors. Both inside and outside the classroom, our dairy professors make teaching and working with students their top priority. Learn more today at

The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.

30th Annual WHA Futurity Seventeen bovine beauties graced the shavings at the Wisconsin State Fair Park on Saturday, August 13 to compete for first place in the 30th Annual Wisconsin Holstein Futurity. Judging this prestigious event was Brian Behnke of Brooklyn, Wis. In this non-traditional show, the animals are entered three years prior to the show and only the best of the entries compete for the coveted title. This year the Futurity title was captured by Ernest-Anthony Sid Amelia, owned by Crescentmead Holsteins and shown by Sarah Wendorf of Ixonia, Wis. The Wendorf family received $1500 from our generous sponsor, Badgerland Financial. Amelia was also named Best Udder of the show and the Top Fat and Protein production winner. Following closely in second was Ryan-Vu Regin Raz A Taz, owned by Chad and Mark Ryan, Majestic View, and Crailoo Dairy Farm, and shown by Amy Ryan of Fond du Lac, Wis. Raz A Taz won a $750 check from International Protein Sires. She was also named the first place Bred and Owned animal. In third place was Rob-Cri Dempsey Secret, exhibited by Gracelyn Jo Breitenstein of Plover, Wis. Agropur presented Gracelyn and Secret with a check for $500. Gracelyn was also presented with the first place Junior award, sponsored by Angela Davis-Brown of Ma-Brown Holsteins and Jerseys and $50 from the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association. With the bovine beauties truly looking their best, the exhibitors are also dressed to impress for this show. These exhibitors put away their jeans and boots for a night of ball gowns and tuxedos to compete for the Best Dressed awards. All the exhibitors were looking their best and truly impressed the crowd. The Best Dressed Junior award and $100, sponsored by Frisle-Vu Holsteins, went to Nicole Wright from Watertown, Wis. Levi Kindshi of Loganville, Wis., received the Best Dressed Male award and $100 from Indianhead Holsteins. The Best Dressed Female of the night went to Courtney Ewert of Hustisford, Wis., along with $100 sponsored by Scenic-Edge Holsteins. The night was led by the master and mistress of ceremonies, Tim Natzke and Kristin Olson, who introduced distinguished guests and the bovine beauties. Distinguished guests for this year’s event included Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess Kati Kindschuh; Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess Attendant Paige Nelson; Alice in Dairyland Ann O’Leary; Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs Gloria Kesler; National Red and White Queen Mckenna Coffeen; and Green County and Dane County Royalty. The Wisconsin Holstein Association Futurity is a very unique show with a unique mission. The Wisconsin Holstein Association uses the futurity to help promote the dairy industry to the general public, display the first class care dairy farmers provide for their animals and show the dedication that we have for our animals and the products they produce. The Wisconsin Holstein Association Futurity was started to inform consumers about the dairy industry and Registered Holsteins. The 30th Wisconsin Holstein Association futurity would not be possible without our generous sponsors. The Wisconsin Holstein Association would like to thank the major futurity sponsors, 18 - MIDWEST HOLSTEINS, Fall 2016

Wataview Mark Babe Supreme Champion 1973

The late Henry “Sonny” Bartel’s Hi-Path Farm had a banner day at the Central National Show in 1973, as he captured Grand Champion Bull and Cow honors in the Dane County Coliseum. Wataview Mark Babe was the top four-year-old cow of the show in a class of 23 Holsteins, and went on to be named Grand over Wisconsin favorite, Gene-Acres Felicia May Fury. A total of 242 Holsteins paraded the ring for Judge Fred Foreman of Iowa, assisted by Associate Judge Donald Collins, New York. With a tremendous amount of cow power, Wisconsin also took home State Herd honors for the show.

Gene-Acres Felicia May Fury EX-97 4E Supreme Champion 1974

All-American Aged Cow 1973-1974 Reserve All-American 1972 7-07 3x 365d 32,176 4.2% 1350F Lifetime: 4,740d 227,830M 4.1% 9,369F Felicia May was the pride and joy of Allen Hetts’ herd. She was purchased from Mulder Farm in Milton, and was Reserve All-American four times prior to becoming the All-American Aged Cow in 1973-74. She also set a Wisconsin milk record by production 32,471M and 1215F at five years of age. Felicia May had four records over 30,000 pounds milk and 1200 pounds fat. In 1973, owner Allen Hetts became victimized by cancer and died on November 14, 1973 at 52 years of age. Felicia May was named Grand at Allen’s show (World Dairy Expo) a year after his death in 1974. Over 40 years later people still compare cows to “May,” lovingly referred to as “everyone’s sweetheart.” There were 349 Holsteins exhibited at the 1974 Central National Show in Madison, with 15 states and Canada represented. The aged cow class was ‘a sight to behold,’ with the drama of the moment bringing a hush of attentiveness from the spectators. The judge deliberated over three daughters of Fury, with Felicia May working her way to the top as the ‘longterm dairy machine.’ His choice brought resounding applause as the crowd rejoiced with the Hetts family and other members of Felicia May Associates, her owners. “The cow who does it all” was Best Udder, Type and Production winner, highest producing cow, Senior and Grand Champion Female before taking Supreme Champion honors. In May of 1975 the Hetts’ herd was dispersed, and Gene-Acres Felicia May Fury topped the sale. She sold for $80,000, which at the time, was the second highest selling Registered Holstein female of all time in North America. Felicia May had 12 daughters that were either Very Good or Excellent, with several daughters producing over 100,000 pounds of milk lifetime. The Wisconsin sweetheart, Felicia May held a special place in the hearts of Holstein enthusiasts years after her World Dairy Expo victory.

October 2016 WI Holstein News - 32 pgs_Layout 1 9/21/16 12:52 PM Page 19

the pinnacle twice. Just one of two Wisconsin-owned and developed beauties to take the supreme title twice in her career, Vandyk-K Integrity Paradise called Rosedale Genetics, Ltd. home. As a four-year-old, Paradise took her first parade across the colored shavings under the spotlight, a moment truly celebrated by the team of Mark Rueth & Kent Van Dyk. When she was able to repeat in 2002, it was truly a special moment for the Rosedale team, as it was the first championship originating from their farm. Paradise left a very special mark in the Rosedale herd, as her clone, Paradise 2, was named Intermediate Champion at World Dairy Expo in 2005. Paradise 4 was also an influence in the herd, and she and Paradise 2 had daughters by September Storm and Dundee. Paradise herself had beautiful Gibson and Linjet daughters. Owner Mark Rueth seems to have an eye for the show-winning kind, as he later developed Redrose, the first Red and White Holstein to earn Supreme Champion honors at the big show. He and wife Nicky welcomed their first daughter to the family in late spring, lovingly naming her “Paradise Rose” after the undeniable Holstein beauties that came before her. While Paradise is in her final resting place at Rosedale, her legacy will live on through those that came after her.

Lavender Ruby Redrose-Red EX-96 4E Supreme Champion 2005

Wisconsin Cow of the Year 2011 All-American 125,000 lb. Cow 2010 Red & White Cow of the Year 2010 All-World Cow of the Year 2006 & 2008 All-American 125,000 lb. Cow 2007 Global R&W Cow of the Year 2006 All-American 5-Year-Old 2005 Grand Champion, World Dairy Expo 2005 Reserve All-Wisconsin 4-Year-Old 2004 Reserve Senior Champion, World Dairy Expo 2004 All-Wisconsin Junior 2-Year-Old 2002 Lifetime: 245,845M 4.5% 10,505F 3.3% 8170P Perhaps one of the greatest Red and White Holstein cows of all time, Lavender Ruby Redrose-Red became a household name after winning the International Red and White Holstein Show and becoming the first Red and White to take Supreme Champion honors at World Dairy Expo in 2005. Redrose was one of the

founding ladies at Rosedale when Mark and Nicky started farming together in 2001. A yearling at the time, she was a beautiful Rubens that needed time to develop. She was a part of the family, always a healthy and strong dairy cow, and even got to be the host of several birthday celebrations in her 14 years of life at Rosedale. Mark and Nicky let Redrose reside under the theory that ‘you’ve got to let cows be cows,’ as she roamed the farm freely each day before her passing in June of 2014. A descendant of the one and only Blackrose (Rubens x Rudolph x Leader x Blackrose), Mark felt Redrose was a more dairy version of Blackrose, with even more tremendous transmitting power. Similar to Blackrose, who did well in the ring as a two and three-year-old, Redrose was named first Junior Two-Year-Old at the 2002 Red and White Show at World Dairy Expo. In 2004 she was second place Four-year-old and Reserve Grand Champion, and she went on to claim her title of Supreme in 2005. Just as impressive was her return in 2007, when she won the 125,000 lb. class and was again named Grand Champion of the Red and White Show. Redrose had several sons in AI, with some of the most notable bulls including Rosedale Accolade-Red, Rosedale Advantage-Red and Rosedale Touchdown-Red. Her Advent daughter sold for an impressive $135,000 at the 2006 World Classic Sale. Redrose had additional daughters by Absolute, Redliner, Perseus, Sanchez, Acme, Destry and Action that all scored well and made their mark in the show ring, from champion honors to All-American nominations. Truly a family member and one the Holstein world won’t soon forget, the Redrose legacy will continue to live on through her outstanding offspring, just as many of the ladies that have taken these prestigious titles before her.

Frosty began her show career in 2006, being nominated All-American Senior Two-YearOld. Her nomination that year stemmed from a fifth place finish at World Dairy Expo and a win in the Senior Two-Year-Old class at Harrisburg. In 2007, Frosty was named Intermediate Champion and Reserve Grand Champion of the International Holstein Show as a Senior ThreeYear-Old. Frosty maxed out her third lactation score at EX-95 (97-94-9394-96) just nine days fresh. Her show ring debut in 2009 was at the big dance, when she stepped wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/October 2016-19

October 2016 WI Holstein News - 32 pgs_Layout 1 9/21/16 12:53 PM Page 20

onto the colored shavings in the five-year-old class at World Dairy Expo. Frosty won her class and went on to defeat the reigning Grand and Supreme Champion of World Dairy Expo, Thrulane James Rose (EX-97), for Senior and Grand Champion. She also defeated the legendary Old Mill E Snickerdoodle (Brown Swiss) for Supreme Champion honors. In 2010 Frosty again graced the colored shavings at World Dairy Expo. She was the first place Aged Cow, Senior and Grand Champion of the International Holstein Show. Frosty was crowned the Supreme Champion for the second consecutive year. She was scored at six years, ten months and was raised to EX-96 2E with an EX-96 MS. Frosty was a tremendous production cow in her own right, with a 5-07 record at 2x and 365d of 40,725M with 5.0 2030F and 2.8 1138P. Her offspring include at least 11 Excellent and 22 Very Good daughters, in addition to two EX-96 sons – Federal (Semex) and Freeze (St. Jacobs). There are also two clones of Frosty, scored EX-95 and EX-92. Frosty passed away peacefully at 12 years of age at Duckett Holsteins home in Rudolph, Wis., in January of this year. There is no doubt her impact will be felt in the Duckett’s herd for years to come.

Katrysha has garnered an impressive list of show winnings, including Grand Champion honors of both the International Holstein Show at World Dairy Expo and the Wisconsin Championship Show. 20–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/October 2016

Katrysha sold through the International Intrigue Sale in 2014, where she was purchased by Butlerview. By spring of 2015, Milk Source took sole ownership of Katrysha, and the rest is history. While 2015 was a memorable year for Katrysha and Milk Source, it is not her first with AllAmerican credentials. In 2014, she was All-American and AllCanadian five-year-old, and in 2013, she was Nominated All-American as a four-year-old cow. When Katrysha hit the ring for the Supreme Champion contest on the Saturday evening of the 2015 World Dairy Expo, she was one of three cows from Milk Source Genetics in the parade, which marked the first time that a farm has accomplished this feat at the world’s greatest dairy show. Milk Source exhibited the champion Jersey, Red and White, and black and white Holstein cows. Milk Source was also Premier Exhibitor of the International Holstein Show, and Premier Breeder and Exhibitor of the Red and White Holstein show earlier in the week. The team at Milk Source Genetics knew they had a personal best in strength of the show string at World Dairy Expo, but they had no idea the week would end the way it did. Jim Ostrom, co-owner at MilkSource commented, “It’s the best string of cows we will ever work with, and we should enjoy the moment – regardless of the outcome, because they are truly spectacular.” Team Milk Source has continued to develop some of the best in the breed, and Holstein enthusiasts can look forward to the outstanding individuals that will continue to parade the colored shavings from this Kaukauna, Wis., powerhouse for years to come.

Kati's Calf-eine Hello dairy friends! With feelings of pumpkin spice, caramel apples and football in the air, it can only mean one other thing; the greatest holiday (not shown on a calendar) has arrived - World Dairy Expo! Long gone are the days of heat and humidity, rather we look to reap the benefits of our crops and put the cherry on top of the show season with all of the excitement commencing in Madison. World Dairy Expo, for many, is a time for celebration, reunion of old friends and so much more. The time spent in Madison is well worth all of the hours spent behind closed doors, working to make dreams come true. This year, we’ve had the distinct pleasure of celebrating the 50th Anniversary of World Dairy Expo, hopefully one of many great anniversaries to come of this prestigious event. This time of year is also great for reflection; looking back on the things we’ve accomplished not only this year but in the

last few years, decade or lifetime. As the seasons change, we as agriculturalists and dairy farmers look to change and evolve with this tremendous industry. World Dairy Expo allows us to get excited about cows, become energized to develop good cows for next year and continually grow. So take a moment, brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and sit back and think about all of the good memories made this last year. But looking back as the leaves begin to fall on the wonderful summer we’ve had, there has been lots of great memories! From State Fair to the WHA State Picnic, there has been great opportunities for Holstein fellowship. A special “thank you” to the Fust family for hosting the annual picnic at their beautiful farm in the rolling hills near Wausau. I think I speak on behalf of everyone in attendance that the cows looked great, the scholarship auction was a success and the friendly egg-toss competition was an “egg-cellent” game. Although World Dairy Expo will soon be over, that doesn’t mean the excitement stops! I am busy continuing school visits around Wisconsin, spreading the fun facts of the Holstein cow and the delicious dairy products that they provide us with. If there is an elementary school near you that you’d like us to come visit, head over to our website and submit a Royalty Request form. We’d love to help share the story of Wisconsin Holsteins near you! Until next coffee hour, Kati Kindschuh

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.

A note from your JACs

Hey Junior Members! With the last of the county fairs wrapping up and the weather getting cooler, it is hard to believe that this summer’s show season has finally come to an end. It has been a great experience for myself and the rest of the JACs watching you show off your hard work in the show ring all summer long. Congratulations to you all on your accomplishments!! Most of you are back in school now and are gearing up for another great year ahead! Keep in mind that the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Convention is just around the corner - January 6-8, 2017 - in Wisconsin Dells! Get your dairy bowl teams together to practice, finish your craft projects, polish up your speeches, and get ready for some Holstein fun! I hope you all filled out your 12 & under, YMR, and DJM forms! We would like to remind you that a second round of award forms are due November 15. This includes the WHY Friend, Junior Trip, Essay contest, Long Range Production, and Progressive Breeder awards. The WHY Friend award is one we encourage you to fill out. It is a great way to recognize all the hard work, blood, sweat, and tears your advisors, parents, and leaders put into helping us juniors out with all the different activities all year round. So, don’t forget to thank them even if it is simply by nominating them for this awesome award!! For those of you who attend convention but don’t participate in the contests like dairy bowl and dairy jeopardy, we have some new activities for you this year! We will have informative and educational panel sessions running both on Friday afternoon and Saturday. There will be three different topics/sessions for all convention goers to attend! More info will come as convention gets closer, but we are very excited about this and hope you enjoy them! Lastly, for those of you older members who are interested in running for JAC at convention, feel free to ask one of the current JACs any questions that you may have! We would be glad to help! I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful fall weather and the rest of your 2016! I can’t wait to see you all at Convention in a few short months! Katie Bauer, NE District JAC

2016 John Klossner Trophy Winner

Elise Bleck of Glenbeulah, Wis., was awarded the third 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, Elise received a traveling trophy, custom designed to create a fitting representation of the contest and tribute to John. Elise is the 15-year-old daughter of Dr. Jeff and Lea Ann Bleck of Glenbeulah. Elise, along with her parents and brother, Brady, live on Blecksview family farm, where they raise Holstein and Brown Swiss show cattle. Elise exhibited the 2015 All-Wisconsin Brown Swiss Winter Yearling and received reserve junior champion of the junior show. She was a member of the state champion Sheboygan County 4-H junior dairy quiz bowl team in 2015. She was also a member of the Sheboygan County Dairy judging team that placed second at the state 4-H dairy judging contest. Elise is the president of the Spring Valley 4-H Club and a member of the Sheboygan County Junior Holstein Association. She also plays basketball, volleyball and enjoys swimming and dance class.

If you’ve picked up this issue of the News at our booth at WDE, I hope you’ll enjoy reading about what’s happening at Wisconsin Holstein. If you like what you see and would like to become a monthly subscriber, please give us a call or email. This issue is our final issue of Midwest Holsteins for 2016. Thank you to all who participate in these issues to make them a great addition to the magazine and a great benefit for all of the states. The Midwest issues reach over 4,500 readers for the 5 state publications - for a bargain price! If you’re interested in talking more about advertising in future issues, please give me a call. I am excited to announce that WHA is now offering website development for our members. If you are thinking about putting together a website for your farm, please give us a call. We are offering a fall special of 10% off your first year for those that sign up by Nov. 1. Feel free to stop by our booth at WDE if you’d like to discuss this with us! I’d like to remind everyone of our annual cover contest. We are always looking for scenic or eye-catching photos of Holsteins and our members for potential cover photos, not only for the News but Midwest Holsteins as well. Submissions for this year’s contest can be emailed (300 dpi or higher) or mailed (5x7 or larger, high quality print) to my office - or PO Box 49, Lancaster, WI 53813. Coming next month is our annual Red & White issue. We will also include World Dairy Expo results and will be featuring District 3. If you are interested in advertising, please give me a call by October 10. Membership renewals are in the mail! As always, you can renew your membership by returning your green card with a check, calling our office to renew by credit card, or using the online system on our website. Any questions, give us a call! Until next time...
