Obituaries Christine Stilling

Christine D. Stilling, 63, Cambridge, passed away on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at her home. She was born on July 20, 1950, the daughter of Lyman and Dolly (Stroebel) martin. Chris attended Flanagan Country School through the 6th grade. She graduated from Lake mills High School in 1968 and from The University of Wisconsin-Stout in 1972, and did her graduate work at UW-Whitewater. In 1970, she began her teaching career in the Lake mills summer school program and continued to do so for 25 years. She taught kindergarten her first year in Sun Prairie and then taught Special Education at LmHS, from where she retired in 2011, after 39 years. She truly loved her vocation. Her colleagues that surrounded her were a second family. Students were the heart and soul of her career. Chris had currently been in contact with many of the hundreds of students whose lives she touched over the years. Chris met Harry in the spring of 1973. They were married on her family farm August 10, 1974. They lived on his family farm, a few miles away. Chris’s real joy of her life was her family. She loved living on the farm and raising their two sons, Bill and Bob. All the chores, fieldwork, cow shows, and sales were a joy for her to watch. Bill and Bob at Harry’s side as they grew was the best part of her life. Although her retirement was short, it was very fulfilling. She enjoyed helping Bill and Kristen run the farm with Harry. And now watching her grandchildren, Justin, Adie, and Emmett grow up on the farm. Her and Harry enjoyed traveling to watch Bob at his work with NBC Sports/Golf Channel. Chris was overjoyed with the birth of Elin Christine, Bob and megan’s first Child. In her free time, she enjoyed gardening with her mother, Dolly, swimming, sailing, and watching PJ’s Home Talent games and the Brewers. Chris was a member of the Lake mills moravian Church and Lake Ripley Country Club. She is survived by her husband Harold (Bud) Stilling, Jr of Cambridge; sons William (Kristen) Stilling of Lake mills, Robert (megan) Stilling of Lake mills; grandchildren, Justin, Adela, Emmett, and Elin Christine; mother, Dolly martin of Fort Atkinson; brother, Carl (Jennifer) martin of Lake mills; sister, margaret (Ron) Demshar of Wayzata, mN; mother-in-law, Grace Stilling of Cambridge; and many nieces and nephews, including PJ and Kaity Stilling of Lake mills, and margarete and Anna martin of Lake mills. She was preceded in death by her father. If desired, memorials may be made to the family to establish an Agricultural Scholarship and a fund for a memorial garden at the Lake mills High School. 8–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2014

Romkje “Rom” Van Dyk

Romkje “Rom” (minkema) Van Dyk was a strong lady. She survived the German occupation of Holland from 1940 to 1945. In 1955 she and her husband Jan packed up their then five children, ages nine to one, and a very few of their belongings and left Holland and emigrated to the United States to farm. They had one more child after they arrived in the United States. Rom, age 92, died Tuesday, may 27 at The Deerfield in New Richmond. Rom was born october 19, 1921, as a twin, at her parents’ home in Wieuward, Friesland, the Netherlands. Her parents were Hendrik and Riemertje Boonstra minkema. In Holland, she attended the equivalent of high school and then Huischoudschool. In April of 1945 she and Jan Van Dyk were married. Jan was an agricultural agent but longed to farm on his own, which was impossible for him in the Netherlands because of the lack of land available to new farmers. So, with their then five children, the Van Dyks emigrated to the United States, initially settling in minnesota but then relocating to a rented farm at River Falls and then to a farm at New Richmond. In 1968 the Van Dyks with their son Gerrit bought a farm south of New Richmond. Rom was a talented sewer, knitter and baker and always had a supply of desserts and sweets on hand for guests. She was an avid gardener and every summer on the farm planted varieties of vegetables that she canned in the fall, typically canning 52 jars of each variety. Rom was a member of the Erin Prairie Homemakers. She accompanied her children to meetings of the Springbook 4-H Club for many years and was a knitting leader for more than 25 years. She avidly participated in the St. Croix County Fair for many years and enjoyed entering projects, winning many championship ribbons with her knitting and visiting exhibits and barns. Rom was a helper on the farm and often milked cows both morning and evening. Rom and Jan moved off the farm in 1996 to a condominium in New Richmond. Jan passed away in 1997 but Rom continued to live there until 2006 when she moved to The Deerfield in New Richmond. Rom was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Jan, her twin sister Uilkje, grandson Jason Van Dyk and niece Riemy Venema. Rom is survived by her six children: Hendrik (Bonnie); Gerrit (Pat); John (Eileen); Bill (Cindy), all of New Richmond; JoAnn Van DykAdams (Paul), of Eleva; and Rita Van Dyk-Hawley (Tom) of Baldwin. Surviving grandchildren are: Dan (Aly) Van Dyk; Allison (Rick) Zaccardi; Jordan Van Dyk; Claire Van Dyk; Jackie (Steve) Kumm; Julie (Troy) Elmer; Jeff (Becky) Van Dyk; Jenny (mark) Larson; Chris (Rikki) Van Dyk; Greg (Stefanie) Van Dyk; Laura (Josh) Ulrich; Kim (Ryan) Jacobson; Peter Van Dyk; Brian Van Dyk; Tim (Kris) Adams; Becky (Jody) Larson; John Hawley; Kelly Hawley; and Ellen Hawley. Surviving great-grandchildren are; owen and Everett Van Dyk; Anika and Gus Zaccardi; Zach and Nick Elmer; Savanna Van Dyk; Clayton Van Dyk; Jacob and Josh Van Dyk; Tyler and Ben Larson; Tyler, Derek, Lane and Landon Van Dyk; Alexandra, John and Kate Van Dyk; Reese and Eva Ulrich; morgan Jacobson; and Kennedy DeBartolo.

BREEDER PROFILE

Wide Open Acres Charlie & Katie Bue, Alma Center by Ashley Dreier, WHA Summer Intern

he Bues of Wide open Acres in Alma Center, Wis., are a family fulfilling a dream that was born nearly 15 years ago. Since their first year of business in 2001 with only four cows in the barn, Charlie and Katie Bue have developed their operation into a multiple-breed, successful 46-cow dairy farm. Along with running the farm, Charlie also trims feet on the side for other dairy breeders. Charlie and Katie both grew up on dairy farms, however Charlie grew up with Holsteins while Katie grew up raising milking Shorthorns. Today, they have several breeds at their farm, the majority of which are Holsteins and milking Shorthorns. Charlie and Katie have a four year old daughter, Kyra, who is starting to show some interest in the calves and enjoys naming the farm cats. When they first got started, Charlie had actually managed a farm that was just across the road from where they reside now and when it came up for sale, the Bues purchased it. They owned a few cows of their own and housed a couple of cows on the farm that Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Eddie, owned. The very first night at the farm, they milked four cows. Gradually, they added more cows to the herd until they had a full barn of 46 milking cows. But before they added more cows to the barn, the Bues wanted to make some changes to their facility. They transformed the 55 stanchions into 44 tie-stalls and added two box stalls. In addition to updating and upgrading the stalls, they also tore down one silo, added a feed room, and made improvements to their heifer raising area. The heifer raising area didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much to it and consisted of one pen with no water. In order to house all their heifers, the Bues poured cement to make four heifer raising pens and put in two automatic waterers. Typically, the Bues do all the farm work themselves, but since Charlie and Katie are expecting their second child, they hired an intern this year Pfaffs Gibson to help out with chores. Along 18â&#x20AC;&#x201C;wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2014

T

with their own herd, they house a couple of cows for other Holstein breeders and they own some partnership cows. Their main partner is Ken Pfaff of Rochester, mN. If you visit Wide open Acres, you will notice several different breeds of cattle living there. The Bues not only have Holsteins and milking Shorthorns, they also have a few Jerseys and they are now housing a Brown Swiss. Charlie and Katie currently milk 46 cows twice a day. They have a RHA of 22,040 pounds of milk with 3.91% 863 pounds fat and 3.28% 723 pounds protein. They usually have about 45 head of young stock on the farm. Wide open Acres consists of 230 acres of land and the main crops grown are corn and hay. The Bues do most of their own field work but occasionally have some custom work done. Cows are component fed with high moisture corn and a protein/mineral pellet in the barn in the morning and at night. They will go outside to the bunk and pasture after milking for three to six hours per day, weather permitting. At the bunk, the cows are fed corn silage and haylage. Show cows usually go out at night but the rest of the herd stays in the barn and is fed baylage. Cows are allowed to calve out on pasture when the weather is nice or inside in a maternity pen. After the calf is removed from its mother it gets taken to its own calf hutch. It is given an Ecolizer+C tube and calf guard as well as much colostrum as it will drink. Bull calves are sold and heifer calves are raised in individual calf hutches. They are fed milk for at least a week before they are switched to milk replacer. The Bues feed a 23% starter. Calves are kept on milk for 10 to 12 weeks before they are transitioned to water and an 18% grower. Then the calves get moved to a group pen that usually has four to seven calves in it. Heifers are housed in group pens all the way through breeding. They get fed eight to ten pounds of 18% grower for at least six months and are then transitioned to a pellet and grain diet with dry hay or baylage, depending on what Charlie and Katie have available. When the heifers reach breeding age, they are either A.I. bred or have embryos put in so they calve around two years old. When discussing which Registered Holstein female has had the greatest impact on their herd, Katie and Charlie believe that it was milk & Honey Progress Russ-ET, EX-90. Their partner, Ken Pfaff, originally bought Russ Rally EX-94 and together they all have


ownership of the daughters from Russ. Her last milk record at 5-10 starting to use some genomic sires such as Ste odile Pure, Val-Bisson in 365 days was 31,370 pounds of milk 4.0% 1254 fat 3.0% 954 Doorman and De-Su Bkm mcCutchen. other sires that they are protein.

2014 National Holstein Convention Dubuque, Iowa Adult and Junior Holstein members from across the country met June 24-28 in Dubuque, Iowa for the annual convention. Junior members had their first day of competitions on Wednesday with three age divisions of Dairy Jeopardy. When the dust cleared, Andy Sell was the winning contestant in the senior division. The Wisconsin speaking contestants also competed on Wednesday and our two dairy bowl teams, Shawano County for the junior division and Polk County in the senior division, had their knowledge exam that evening to be seeded for the tournament. Juniors also enjoyed a little fun at Wednesday evening’s hoedown. Adults and juniors had several choices for tours on Thursday, from visiting several elite dairy farms to wineries and toy museums to the site where they filmed the movie Field of Dreams. The day concluded with Family Fun Night at the museum at the mississippi River museum. The annual meeting of Holstein Association USA convened on Friday, June 27. Top news from the business meeting was the announcement of a joint effort between Holstein USA and Zoetis. The new program, EnlightTm, is an online management tool that will help dairy producers manage their genetic reports. Any breeder that has genomic tested at least one animal will be able to enroll in EnlightTm for free and can view genetic reports on all of the animals in their herd. For more information on EnlightTm visit the Holstein Association USA website. Also announced was the creation of a new award, the Elite Performer Award. This award is based on a cow’s actual performance and conformation. For the initial round, 400 National Elite Performers and 402 Regional Elite Performers have been recognized by Holstein USA. Finally, annual meeting attendees learned that there will be a change to the TPI formula in December 2014 along with a base change. Two new components will be added to the TPI formula: feed efficiency and a fertility index. Elections were held for four board of director positions. Incumbants Roy Buessing and mike Jones were re-elected and elected for their first term were John Burket and Dale Drendel. Recognized during the annual meeting were 40-year members, the two Star of the Breed cows and the Herds of Excellence. Wisconsin junior members had another successful convention. Ryan Pralle and Cassy Krull were recognized as DJm finalists, Carrie Warmka was awarded a NHWSo Scholarship, Elise Bleck and Courtney moser won their folding disply categories and several juniors were recognized with cow awards (see side panel). The Polk County dairy bowl team placed 3rd in the senior division. Wisconsin also won the mission membership for the largest increase in National junior memberships.

Distinguished Leadership Award

marlowe Nelson of Viroqua, Wis., was presented the 2014 Distinguished Leadership award. This award is given annually to an individual who has provided outstanding and unselfish leadership to the Holstein Association, or dairy industry as a whole. Nelson received his bachelor’s degree in agriculture education from the University of Wisconsin- madison, then a master’s degree in dairy science from michigan State University. Shortly after, he was drafted into the Korean War. While stationed in northern Japan, Nelson befriended a Japanese dairy farming family, and that relationship remained even after he returned to the U.S. Through his connections, he coordinated more than 100 Japanese trainees that came to Wisconsin to work on prominent Registered Holstein farms such as Pabst, Lakeside, Crescent Beauty, Gray View, Crescentmead, Indianhead and Bristol Farms. The contacts developed also led to the export of premier Holstein genetics from top herds around the U.S. to Japan. These relationships not only facilitated export to Japan, but Germany, France and Holland as well. Nelson worked for eleven years with Tri-State Breeders, now Accelerated Genetics, as a sire analyst and sire procurement specialist. A few of his bull contracts included Harborcrest Happy Crusader, Provin mountain Ivanhoe Jewel, Hagemans Tempo and Sunnyside Standout. After leaving Tri-State Breeders, he spent 35 years with Alvin Piper’s International Holsteins organization, as a pedigree expert in the sale box, ring man, and purchased cattle over the phone for other young dairy farmers. In 1990, he started International Protein Sires with Alvin Piper, exporting semen around the globe, and sold the established business in 2000. Nelson’s influence in the international Holstein arena, AI industry,

his civic and community involvement, and his mentorship of great Holstein breeders is a legacy in itself. His generosity will continue to yield benefits for generations to come. And his gentle laugh reminds us all that marlowe Nelson is not only a great leader, but a genuinely great person.

Greetings Friends, What an eventful, exciting summer it has been for Kayla and I! It has truly been an honor this summer attending and watching all of the District shows, State Show, and Wisconsin State Fair. I personally enjoyed attending Futurity at the Wisconsin State Fair this year for the first time. The best is yet to come as we will get to sit ring-side as the best bovines in the world walk across the colored shavings at World Dairy Expo. Be sure to visit the Wisconsin Holstein booth in the Coliseum and see the newly built barns! Kayla and I have also been busy attending local events this summer. We spent an afternoon educating in the Fond du Lac County Birthing Barn. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to educate the

public about not only the Holstein cow, but also about how food gets from farm to table. I even had the great opportunity to learn and educate about baby chicks! We have also enjoyed traveling to different county Futurities. It was not only a great time to see some beautiful Holstein cows, but also a chance to network with Holstein breeders in those counties. It was wonderful to see such an awesome turnout at this year’s State Picnic. A huge Thank You to Budjon for hosting this event. Also, congratulations to those of you who participated in the judging contests. As we reach the end of summer, there are certainly things to be excited about this fall for our Association. of course, we all look forward to attending, exhibiting, and socializing at World Dairy Expo. For our Juniors, it’s never too early to start working on those award forms! They can all be found on the website. Looking even further into the future, I know that the Dodge County Juniors are hard at work planning and preparing for the 2015 Junior Convention. Just a reminder that our request form is still available on the website. Kayla and I are always willing to speak, educate, or be present at any event! Until next time, Kristen Broege

Family of UW Dairy Scientist makes $775,000 Gift to Support the Student Teams he used to Coach By Adam Hinterthuer The University of Wisconsin-madison Department of Dairy Science has announced the creation of a $775,000 fund to help dairy science students defray costs of attending events that are a key part of their education. The David P. Dickson Foundation is establishing the fund, named for late “Dr. Dave” Dickson, to cover registration fees, travel and other expenses associated with participating in dairy judging and Dairy Challenge contests. Dickson, who died in 2010, was a UWmadison dairy science professor from 1966 to 1996 and continued to serve the university and the industry after his retirement. His family is making the gift to ensure that his legacy survives in the communities that meant the most to him, says Tim Garnett, executor of Dickson’s estate. “If you knew Uncle Dave,” Garnett says, “there was never any doubt what he loved most - family, cows and the University of Wisconsin. For me and the rest of the family, making a gift to the UW-madison dairy judging team was the clear way to tie all of his passions together.” Dickson was especially proud of his role as a coach of UW dairy cattle judging teams - a role he continued well into his retirement. He led Badger teams to five national championships at the National Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Contest. His teams also won 12 titles at the national contest for oral reasons, the part of the competiton in which contestants explain the rationale for their judging decisions. Dickson emphasized oral reasons in his coaching as a way to help his students develop communication and critical thinking skills. Dickson also made lasting contributions to the Wisconsin 4-H program, the National Cooperative Dairy Herd Improvement program and was founding advisor to the UW-madison Badger Dairy Club. UW dairy science department chair Kent Weigel regards Dickson’s gift as yet another of “Dr. Dave’s” contributions to the education of students and farmers and the advancement of dairy science in Wisconsin. “We are tremendously grateful to the Dickson family for this generous endowment,” Weigel said, “It will ensure that future UWmadison dairy science students are able to take advantage of every available opportunity, both inside and outside of the classroom, to prepare themselves for leadership positions in the industry.” That’s exactly what Dickson and his family had in mind, says Tim Garnett. “From a very young age,” Garnett says, “cattle judging provided Uncle Dave with the tools and opportunities he needed to see the world and become the amazing man he became. I personally wanted to ensure that he could continue to provide the same sorts of opportunities for generations of UW students and cattle judges to come.”

Jessie Potterton named Director of UW-Madison Farm & Industry Short Course

Jessie Potterton has been named director of the Farm and Industry Short Course (FISC) in the University of Wisconsin-madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS). She has held the position on an interim basis for the past 12 months and will formally begin her new duties on october 1. Potterton says she’s thrilled to be able to continue to lead FISC, a 17-week postsecondary educational program that prepares students for careers in agriculture and related fields. “Being from a rural community, it was really exciting when I was asked to step in last

year. I worked hard to build relationships with students and instructors and alumni and I’m looking forward to continuing that,” Potterton says. “We also need to seek out representatives from the ag industry and develop an advisory board to help us improve our program. We need to make sure that our curriculum provides students with the right skills, and we need the industry’s help to do that.” Potterton’s success in the interim position made her a strong candidate for the job, says Sarah Pfatteicher, CALS associate dean for undergraduate programs and services. Before joining FISC, Potterton served from 2011 to 2013 as CALS director of prospective student services. Prior to that, she worked for five years as a UW-Extension 4-H youth development educator in Lafayette County.

Premier Breeder & Exhibitor – District 1 Willows Edge, New Richmond Henk & Bonnie Van Dyk, Jordan & Claire, 4 full-time & 1 part-time employees Herd Info: 100 cows BAA: 111.8% RHA: 2x 23,123 4.1 960 3.0 706 District Show Herd: 14 head shown & 13 were homebred Current sires being used: Sid, Atwood, Golden Dreams, Absolute, Barbwire, Sanchez, Gold Chip & Franco Breeding philosophies/herd goals: We breed for type, butterfat and try to use sires that maintain fertility. We also are conscientious about maintaining size. We sell about 40-50 cows annually and our buyers this year have said they do not want small cows. The market is being driven by high cull values and high bull calf values. Our goals are to have heifers calve in at 23 to 25 months with the exception of the winter months. We always buy a couple of animals each year to improve our breeding base. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Willows Edge Bolton Flicker, Aged Cow, EX-94 EX-94MS Flicker is a cow that has been getting better as she matures. She is the longest cow in the barn and is an exceptional brood cow. We have flushed her every year and she breeds right back to make the show string. She was Grand Champion, Best Udder and Best B&O of the Show. She was flushed to Durham this year and is pregnant to Durham as well. Willows Edge Mac Frosting, 4 year old, EX-92 EX-94 MS - Frosting is Flicker’s oldest daughter and is not a big cow but is extremely correct with a near perfect udder. She is the barn favorite of every judging team. She was first 4 year old, member of the Best Three Females and Dam & Offspring. Willows Edge Laurin Minion, Senior 3 Year Old, EX-91 EX-91MS - Minion was Junior Champion of District 1 as a Fall Calf so she came back and made her debut in milking form. She is from our deep show family of the M’s and has two EX 3 year old maternal sisters. Her dam is an EX-92 Durham, then Star Maiden EX-93 and then an EX Charles. She was 1st Senior 3 year old, BU & B&O, Grand Champion of the Junior Show, Best B&O of the Junior Show and Res. Intermediate Champion of the Open Show. Stranshome Perses Akayla 1st Winter Calf and Reserve Junior Champion of the Junior Show. Akayla was purchased at the Stranshome Luau Sale and her maternal sister was the high seller at $60,000. She is a calf that has extreme style and balance with a pedigree stack of sires that we look for.

Premier Breeder – District 6 Ocean View Genetics, Deerfield Daryl & Pam Nunes Herd Info: 45 cows BAA: 113.5% RHA: 2x 28,222 3.85%F 3.0%P District Show Herd: 7 head shown & 7 were homebred Current sires being used: Atwood, Sanchez, Damion, Gold Chip & Defiant Breeding philosophies/herd goals: Our motto has always been Generations of Excellence and that sums things up well - outstanding individuality with depth of pedigree. We want cows that not only will score Excellent, they also must work to pay the bills. You’ll find for many generations the prefix is built on hard working deep cow families and that’s exactly what we strive to keep building – branch by branch. Our herd currently averages about 8 generations of EX and VG dams behind each individual. We believe that over time and through every fad – deep proven cow families will weather the battle. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Ocean View Roy Shari, EX-93, 1st 150,000 lb. Cow - she completes 13 generations of EX & VG cows from the SHEEN family known for Lindy Sheen & Sexation. She has Braxton daughters and Atwood sisters. She was at 167,000 on show day and will keep building that lifetime. Her dam, still in the herd, is EX-94 and just went over 200,000 lifetime. Ocean View Damion Elise, EX-94, 2nd 6 Year Old & Older - she completes 5 generations of EX cows that can be traced back to Sexation. She has a full sister due this fall and her dam is still in the herd with over 200,000 lifetime. Next three from the Mandel Zandra family: Ocean View Atwood Zandy, VG-87 1st calf, 3rd 4 Year Old; Ocean View Atwood Zandra, VG-88 1st calf, 4th 4 Year Old. Zandy & Zandra are both from an EX-91 Oman granddaughter of Mandel Zandra and they have full sisters due this fall and Sanchez sisters milking. Ocean View Shottle Ziva-ET, VG-85, 2nd Junior 3 Year Old. Ziva is from the EX-93 Allen Zamora out of Mandel Zandra – Zamora was the high seller in the Ocean-View Farms dispersal.

FROM THE FIELD By Dennis Devore, Holstein USA Regional Field Rep Has this been a great summer or what? The milk price is up, cow prices are up, and feed costs are more manageable. It’s amazing what those three things can do for a Holstein member’s peace of mind. our friends in Iowa County hosted a terrific Championship Show. And last but not least, our neighbors to the west over in Iowa, hosted an incredible National Convention. I’d like to talk with you today about a couple of things that materialized at the convention. As you know by now, Holstein Association USA released a new genetic management tool called Enlight. Enlight is a user-friendly browser-based program that offers quicker access to and analysis of genetic data via computer, tablet, or smart phone. There is a detailed description of the program in the summer 2014 issue of the Pulse that explains the program better than I could in this limited space. Sara, Chris, or I would be glad to demonstrate Enlight at your convenience. The second big news from Dubuque is the changes to the TPI formula coming in December. In addition to the base update, fertility index and feed efficiency will be added to the formula. The fertility index is derived from daughter pregnancy rate (64%), heifer conception rate (18%), and cow conception rate (18%). The feed efficiency index will be derived by subtracting feed costs for extra milk produced and extra maintenance costs from the value of the milk produced. Dr. Tom Lawlor, director of research and development, has a more detailed explanation in the summer Pulse. I don’t know what to expect with the December run but I’m pretty sure it will be different. The base update should lower the production PTAs, and the new indexes will probable shuffle the bull line-up somewhat. The important thing is not to freak out. Let’s look at the data, ask some questions, and get answers. The bottom line is: these two changes should lead to longer herd life, more production, and more profitability. And that’s a good thing. Like I said, it’s been a great summer. Here’s hoping that we follow it with a great autumn.

Budjon Farms & St. Jacobs ABC Host Successful Wisconsin Holstein Picnic Not even a downpour could put a damper on a fantastic picnic day, hosted by Budjon Farms and St. Jacobs ABC. over 400 guests had the opportunity to view the breathtaking new facilities recently completed in Lomira to accommodate the growing boarding business. A busy weekend at the farm kicked off on Thursday, July 24, with the start of the St. Jacobs daughter display and Budjon open House Tag Sale. The daughter display and sale continued through the weekend. on Sunday morning, guests had the opportunity to attend “Breakfast with Tim.” owner of St. Jacobs ABC, Tim Abbott was excited to share the story and focus of St. Jacobs ABC – genetics selected to focus on developing dairy cattle with outstanding type traits for function and the tanbark. The picnic started at 11:00 a.m., when guests were invited to enjoy a delicious lunch and partake in the judging contest. Attendees had the chance to take in a one-of-a-kind facility and admire the cows that have graced the colored shavings. Cows that were on display and call Budjon Boarding home for the summer include Robrook Goldwyn Cameron, Rocky mountain Sanchez Finesse, and popular AI contract cow Seagull-Bay miss America. There is no denying the quality of animals bred and housed at Budjon, from the genomic prospects in the hutches to the milking cows standing in the barn. The program for the afternoon was led by board members matt Lippert and Kevin Jorgensen. matt welcomed the crowd, and Kevin introduced the Cull family and thanked them for hosting this year’s event. Tom and Kelli and Tim and Sharyn were each presented with a canvas print of Robrook Goldwyn Cameron, EX-94, and the Grand Champion of this year’s midwest Spring National Show. Also in attendance were WHA royalty Kayla Krueger and WHA board president Chris mcCullough. Dan Cnossen introduced the 2015 spring barn meeting topic, which will focus on classification programs. Raffle ticket winners were also drawn, and judging contest winners announced. Topping the 14 & under age group was Clarissa Ulness, followed by Whitney Ulness and Emma Dorshorst. Winning the 15 & over junior member age group was John Hartman, Elizabeth Sarbacker was second and Sara Griswold was third. Alvin Kayser topped the

men’s division, followed by Trent olson and matt Lippert. Taking top honors in the women’s division was JoDee Sattler, followed by Angie Ulness and Barb Kayser. Picnic attendees received a special treat at the end of the program – a breeder panel featuring discussion on ‘the cow of the future’. Panelists included: Brian Craswell – Crasdale Farms, Hunter River, Prince Edward Island, Canada; Simon Lalande – Ferme Blondin, St-Placide, Quebec, Canada; Hank Van Exel – Judge’s Choice Committee member, Exels Holsteins & Jerseys, Lodi, California; and Tom Cull – Budjon Farms, Lomira, Wisconsin. Here is a brief recap of the panel discussion moderated by Tim Abbott. How do you think the purebred business is going – what will be the cow of the future and what will she look like? Craswell: There’s one word to describe the cow we need, and that’s balance. They don’t need to be extreme in any one way, and I think in the show ring we’ve gone more toward that kind of cow. moving forward we have to make sure our show business is relative to where our industry is going. Cows have to be efficient and fend for themselves, giving some thought to our future and consideration of balance, how cows walk, which is becoming more important. The dairy quality and udders have never been better, but I think we need to look at our locomotion to get better and continue to identify weaknesses to improve our breed. We need to make sure that cows can work wherever they are. Lalande: I agree with Brian – we need cows strong enough to live a long life and be profitable every lactation. Van Exel: We really in the next year, especially with feed scenarios, need balance and dairy strength. We have to look at dairy strength in a little different way than we have in years past. If a cow is giving 115 pounds of milk every day and eating 60 pounds dry matter, they need that muzzle and strength to make a high volume of milk. Back in the day people said I was too critical judging cows with bad feet and legs. Now its one of the most important things. I’m concerned about having cattle that are wide enough to handle feed and bumps and


bruises, and to walk around and be healthy. Cull: I think we need to understand how cows look and how they act. I think people are a little critical of show cows based on how they look. I believe cows grow to their environment – give them a little more room and area to stretch, and cows grow more. I think a lot of my cows could’ve entered into a free stall setting and done well – they maybe wouldn’t have gotten as big and framey, but done well. The cow of the future – I think you need to take a cow like Cameron as a two-yearold and stick her into a free stall so she understands how to act. I think a cow like that is one that would thrive in any environment. What is the biggest challenge the Holstein breed faces as a population? Lalande: one bull that I have been a fan of is Goldwyn; he did really well for me and a great job for most of the show people, but I think we need to come back with more power in the breed. I like the stylish cows but I can recognize that in the breed we need more power and strength; the show cows are a minority. They’re the kind of cows people wish to have but they need to be strong and have good legs. We still need to protect the udders, but if we could come back with something a little better it would help add more power. Van Exel: We see that 15 years ago we talked about the index system – with genomics, one of the things I was initially excited about was finding outliers, but I think we’re instead squeezing the breed into a tight hole. I think we need to find a way to find outlier bulls, and get away from line breeding. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen better show cattle, but it’s getting more difficult to find the kind of bulls I want to use. I tip my hat to Tim for going out and finding new bulls. I think we need more diversity in our breed and hopefully we can get in that direction. Cull: It’s a challenge to find bulls that are new, that have strength left in them, bulls that exemplify what we’re looking for from a high type perspective and keep Goldwyn and Durham out of the pedigree. This business seems to go through cycles, and I think we’re in one of those times right now. The biggest challenge for our breed is to make sure a paper actually still means something. Craswell: As a breed, we need to keep people involved and make sure that what we’re doing and the cows we’re making are relevant to our industry. one of the big problems is locomotion and also strength. one of the main things to keep our industry viable is feed efficiency.

I think we need to keep an eye on the structure of ribs and capacity – a combination of relevant cows, using genomics as a tool, pulling in daughter calving ease. We want show cows with balance, low somatic cell, good fertility, and mobility - the total package. What is the key to promotion in this business? Cull: I think the biggest key, as a young person starting out, is you need to justify your expenses from an advertising perspective. I’m sure a lot of other people do more print/web advertising, but we’ve decided to use our show budget and hosting events like this to get people here. I think the biggest thing to look at is getting the most bang for your buck. Craswell: If we’re going to promote, we need to figure out what everyone needs, or what we think they need or want. We need to have a product to fill a need – the bottom line is we’re all in this to make a dollar. We need to make sure every animal we own can make money, for us or the next owner. Showing is a great form of promotion, but for me, we need to stay focused on what works best and what makes money, and that’s the kind of product we need to promote. Lalande: We need to promote what we believe in, and what the people that buy from you are going to make money with. It’s about consistency, too. For me, one of the best forms of promotion is taking time with the people that come, and show the people I know. Same thing at the show – we are at the show for the competition but when you have people looking at your string its important to spend time with those people. We need people and people need us. Van Exel: For me it’s a little different – we’re on opposite end of the spectrum on the west coast, it’s a little different in promoting. I don’t think we have as many people in the CA association. I think what’s really important is the blue paper – we can go through and talk about Budjon, Bob miller, Regancrest, and the maternal side of this breed. For me, I try to promote good cows make better cows and better cows. I use my budget to come to WDE every year to promote my cattle. Its really made an impact – I could probably go anywhere in the world and they’ve heard of me some how through networking and promotion, sale of embryos and the quality of cattle we bring out.

ACKY WPoint of View Editor’s Comments

I hope everyone had a great summer. We certainly had beautiful weather this summer, especially during our shows. This issue is packed full of show results from all of our District Shows and the Wisconsin Championship Show. While there is only room to print the top 5 in each class in the News, please go to our website to view more results for each of the shows. And next month’s issue will have results from State Fair and the WHA Futurity. I’ve included lots of photos from the District and State Shows in this issue - if you would like to see more, please visit the Wisconsin Holstein Association Facebook page. And “like” our page to keep up to date on what’s going on in the Association. Next month will also be our third midwest Holsteins issue of the year - just in time for World Dairy Expo. If you are interested in getting some extra coverage with your ad - to all the Holstein members in the upper midwest AND to visitors to our World Dairy Expo booth - contact me by September 8 to reserve your ad space. I’m also working on putting together the 2015 Breeder Calendar. This is always a fun project to work on each fall and the calendars go over really well at our WDE booth. If you would like to be a part of next year’s calendar please give me a call months are assigned on a first-come firstserved basis. Hopefully you saw the ad on page 31 that we are printing a new membership Directory this fall. The plan is to have this printed to be mailed with the December issue as a kick-off to our 125th Anniversary in 2015. We always have lots of requests for the directory and it’s a very useful piece for our members, so please call or email us to make sure we have your current and correct contact information. If you do not want your information published, please give us a call as well. If you are interested in advertising in the directory, feel free to give me a call anytime before october 15 rates are also on page 31. A reminder that we will be looking for entries for our annual cover contest this fall. Entries will be due November 15. There is no theme for this year’s contest so feel free to send in any photos that include Holstein cows. We’ve expanded our contest and I encourage juniors to bring your best work to the Junior Convention in January. We will be utilizing some of the best entries from that contest on future covers as well. Until next time...
