BREEDER PROFILES

A visit with District 6 Holstein breeders by Ashley Yager HostoGold Dairy – Kelley & Ruth Ann Hosto, Aaron & Nicole Breunig Families outh central Wisconsin packs a powerful punch when it comes to Registered Holsteins, and HostoGold Dairy is no exception. A farm built on traditional values with a modern edge, the Hosto and Breunig families are utilizing two generations of knowledge to blend ideas and create an exceptional group of high type, hard-working cows. The Hostos have been on their current farm since 2001, but the road to get there was a winding one. Kelley’s parents moved to Wisconsin from Southern Illinois in 1971 and relocated just north of Monroe. Kelley left home in 1982 to become a herdsman, and by 1990, he and Ruth found a herd to work on halves and eventually bought the herd and cash rented the farm. Their search for a forever farm was finally resolved in 2001, when their current farm was sold at public auction. The Hostos were able to purchase the nearly 80 acres, Aaron (holding Gavin) and Nicole (holding Ethan) Breunig, including buildings, and moved the family and herd for the last time. Registered Holsteins have been a part of the Hosto’s operation Ruth & Kelley Hosto since 1990. Even though Kelley’s first experience in cows was not in Registered Holsteins, his father engrained the importance of breeding less daily maintenance. Fans and a new feed cart have also been nice good cows, as he detested milking ugly animals. Their herd growing additions. The updates in facilities have helped support the genetic progress up was never scored, but Kelley’s dad instilled the value of breeding of the herd, as HostoGold is able to sell some replacements each year a high-type animal in him at an early age. The HostoGold herd remains a total type focus herd – bred for for dairy. Their end goal is to sell quite a few, and with the flushing type and fed for production. Even with outstanding type, the Hostos they have done from elite females, they have 70 head of heifers in are adapting some of the newer breed technologies, and have begun waiting to help fulfill that goal. The entire group is able to have input genomic testing youngstock as a tool to improve the health traits in on service sires, which right now include Addiction-P, Absolute, Brady, their herd. Careful management and breeding cows with great frames Defiant, Ladd-P, Gold Chip, McCutchen, and Mogul. The Hostos are able to flush a few cows a year, and try to focus on has translated into a fantastic rolling herd average, with 53 cows on test at 25,000 pounds milk, with a 3.6% fat and 3.0% protein test young cows with potential or an older cow or two that have proven themselves. They have recently flushed Hosto Miss March-Red, a (average 85 pounds/cow). The HostoGold operation has slowly been transitioning ownership VG-86 first lactation Christian daughter from Hosto Advent Molly format in the last few years, as well. All of the registration papers were EX-90, that goes back to Fritzland Mark Miranda EX-92. Miss March transferred January 1, 2014, to the HostoGold partnership, which has sisters by Jasper, Sterling, and Windbrook, and her dam, Molly, consists of Kelley and Ruth, and Nicole and Aaron, Kelley and Ruth’s made a record at 4-01 2x 365d of 33,170M 3.5 1160F 3.0 984P.

cattle that have positively influenced the family. Kelley is thankful for the camaraderie in the county and the opportunities good relationships have provided. Aaron is also active in the county as the youth dairy judging coach. The HostoGold crew enjoys exhibiting at shows, and has had two winners and a second place finish at the District 6 Futurity. In fact, one of those winners was EX-93 Durham Hosto Windbrook Jasmine VG-88 Windfall. Last year, they were in the top 200 for BAA at 110.2, a trend they are hoping to continue for years to come. There are a lot of great things in the pipeline for Kelley, Ruth, Nicole, Aaron and family. With a lot of passion and the drive to breed the good ones, there are good things in store for HostoGold Dairy.

Hoesly Registered Holsteins – Todd & Trish Hoesly Family he Hoesly family has a lot to be proud of when it comes to their homebred herd of Registered Holsteins. Founded in the mid1970s by EJ and Joyce Hoesly, Hoesly Registered Holsteins has been built on a foundation of strong, long-lasting sires and dedicated family members with a drive to breed an outstanding herd of cows. The first registered calves on the farm arrived when EJ and Joyce began purchasing them for Todd and his sister Lisa (Behnke) to show. At that time, the family farm was located in Juda. By the mid-1980s, the herd was 100% registered. Todd attended UW-Madison for dairy science, where he met his wife Trish in 1982. Trish was a native of Mequon, Wis., and was an art major with no farm background. Todd and Trish made the move to their current location in Brodhead in 1986, and purchased EJ and Joyce’s herd, buildings and land in 1987. They married in 1988. When Todd and Trish purchased his parents’ herd, it included three prefixes: Joy-Jay (EJ and Joyce), Out-A-Site (Todd) and Robehnk (Lisa and her husband Roger Behnke). All three prefixes were merged at that time to form the Hoesly prefix. Todd and Trish remain the sole owners of the farm today, and all labor is family. EJ is still active on the farm, as he comes every day to help with chores and mixing feed. He also keeps his son and daughterin-law and their family supplied with fresh produce from his prolific garden in the summer months. The Hoesly’s two children are very active on the farm as well. Oldest son, Jake, will be a senior at UW-Platteville this fall majoring in Crops and Soils and Animal Science with an Ag Business minor.

Hoesly Atwood Payday VG-88

He is full-time on the farm during the summer and quite a few weekends while he is home from college. Daughter Paige will be a freshman at UW-Madison this fall, majoring in Dairy Science, with an interest in biology/pathology. She helps with daily farm chores, feeding young stock, calf registration, and taking care of the show animals. Aside from helping on the farm, Trish owns and operates Spring Creek Design, an in-house graphic design and advertising business. She has created logos and advertising for the farm, in addition to high-profile Holstein breeders and businesses. Trish is also a former Green County Junior Holstein advisor, a role she served in for nine years. Todd is currently serving his third term as President of the Green County Holstein Breeders. The Hoesly herd includes 180 total head of cattle, with 70 milking and dry cows, 80 head of heifers and 30-40 bulls, ranging from calves to breeding age. The bulls are raised at the Hoesly’s second farm and sold as natural service sires around one year of age. The home farm consists of two sets of buildings with 70 acres. The 30 tillable acres are all planted in corn for 100% of the herd’s corn silage. All hay, straw, dry shell corn and supplements are purchased. By building their herd on strong, long-lived sires such as Stardust, Linjet, Encore and Dundee, the Hoeslys have been able to incorporate modern day sires like Goldwyn and his sons while still maintaining the strength from previous generations. With high-type females and outstanding strength, the Hoeslys herd average includes 25,326 pounds milk, with 1018 fat and 826 protein. Their current BAA is 111%, and they have bred 119 Excellent cows to date. Eighty of those are/were multiple ‘E’, with 20 Gold Medal Dams and/or Dams of Merit, and only two of those were purchased. The Hoesly herd has consistently been in the top 200 BAA herds for the last 20 years, including multiple rounds in the top 10 BAA for their herd size. Service sires the Hoesly family is using include Atwood, Armani, Absolute, Sid, Aftershock, Barbwire, and Awesome-Red. Some of their favorite young cows are sired by Sid and Atwood. Todd and Trish have five key matriarchs that have paved the way through the years. The first, Robehnk Insipiration Egypt, EX-92 5E GMD DOM, produced over 300,000 pounds of milk lifetime, and has 21 Excellent homebred descendants. Her granddaughter, Hoesly Linjet Ellen, EX-91 2E, has two Goldwyn daughters the Hoeslys are excited about – an EX three-year-old and a VG-86 two-year-old. They are looking forward to using IVF on the Linjet to produce Atwood and Goldwyn calves. Hoesly Skychief Roulette, EX-90 GMD, is another outstanding production and type cow with 295,000 pounds milk to date. She is a sixth generation VG or EX (only one generation VG), and a sixth generation GMD. Her four homebred Excellent daughters are sired by Dundee (2), Advent, and Rubens, and three of the four are scored EX-94 (2) and EX-95 (1) in the udder. Todd and Trish are fortunate to still have descendants from Todd’s first 4-H calf purchase in 1974 from the Mil-R-Mor herd. Out-A-Site Rotate Kizzy Kara, EX-93 2E GMD DOM, is a greatgranddaughter of that purchase, which also produced Joy-Jay GV Star Con Kizzy (Kara’s dam), EX-90 3E GMD and 200,000 pounds lifetime milk. There are 18 EX homebred descendants of Kara, including two EX Thor daughters that were multiple ‘E’ and over 200,000 lifetime. There are also maternal siblings to Kara: an EX Enhancer, EX Trifecta, VG Tempo, VG Beautician and a VG Lindy. Joy-Jay Tempo Doll Design, EX-93 4E DOM, has 15 EX homebred descendants in the herd. This matriarch from EJ and Joyce’s foundation herd currently has a seventh and eighth generation of homebred Excellent daughters in the herd. Finally, Robehnk Laban Please Palma, EX-92 3E DOM, produced over 289,000 pounds of milk lifetime and has 17 homebred EX descendants in the herd. Some well-known names have come from this dam, including Hoesly Tab Prudence (EX-94 3E), Hoesly Encore Piccolo (EX-90), and Hoesly Durham Praline (EX-93 2E DOM), who was sold to Bur-Wall Holsteins in a state sale and has EX-91 and VG-88 daughters. The most exciting young cow from the Palma family is Hoesly Atwood Payday, VG-88 first score. Pay Day had a huge return for Paige in the show ring this summer, as she was named Junior AllWisconsin Senior Two-Year-Old and Reserve Grand of the Open Show at the District 6 Holstein Show. wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2015-19


Hoesly Hvezda Kiss Me-Red

The Sonnenburg Family: Leah, Amy, Ryan, Kayla, Tom and Adam

Additional cows the Hoeslys are maximizing offspring from include Carn-Quest Advent Robin, EX-92 2E, and Hoesly Advent Magic, EX-94 2E (EX-95MS). Robin was purchased by Jake and Paige with a Rural Youth Development loan, and they have been merchandising Red and White Holsteins from this family. She is an eighth generation EX, straight back to Roxy. Magic is a tenth generation VG or EX from the great Hill Bluff herd. Todd and Trish have received several accolades since the foundation of the Hoesly prefix, including being named Wisconsin Holstein’s 1998 Distinguished Younger Breeder and Green County Outstanding Younger Breeders. In 2003, they were Outstanding Young Farmer finalists. The Hoeslys have been named Premier Breeder twice at their competitive District 6 Show. They have also had seven All-American or Junior All-American nominations, with all being homebred, and six of them Red and White Holsteins. These nominations include a Junior All-American Red and White Winter Calf (2012), Hoesly Hvezda Kiss Me-Red, purchased by Milksource. In the future, the Hoesly family hopes to improve on their facilities, including plans to build a small, versatile shed to house pre-fresh/maternity pens with pens to separate show cows. They hope to improve cow comfort in the barn by installing pasture mats, additional fans and rubber flooring. The Hoeslys also hope to continue their tradition of high type and show pedigrees, as their first All-American nomination was a Red and White summer yearling, and since then, the interest in breeding high type Red and White Holsteins for the show has grown exponentially.

1954, when Ken Sonnenburg moved his 40 cows from Monroe to claim 215 acres and buildings for just $38,000. Similar to any dairy striving to grow, the Sonnenburgs began making updates to facilities in 1971, when the entire barn was remodeled. Stalls were made bigger and tie-stalls added, in addition to new silos being built. The second generation became a part of the home farm when Tom Sonnenburg wanted to buy in, and he did so by adding additional stalls to the milking barn. Through all modifications, the barn went from holding 40 cows to its present capacity of 101. Tom and his wife, Amy, raised their three children on the farm, and their oldest son, Ryan, is now paving his own way in the home operation. Ryan graduated from UW-Platteville in 2010 and returned home to farm immediately. He owns many of the cattle and embryos. Ryan married his wife Kayla in 2014, and she recently joined the staff at World Dairy Expo. His brother, Adam, helps on the farm part-time, and sister Leah is currently working in LaCrosse. The Sonnenburgs changes in facilty and management in the last few years have their 108 cows on test with a rolling herd average on twice a day milking of 26,400 pounds milk, with a 3.7% fat and 3.1% protein. They use three people and 12 automatic take-off units to milk in an hour and a half. With a 4:00 a.m. start time, they try to have evening chores wrapped up by 6:00 p.m. The Sonnenburgs don’t hire much help outside of family labor, as everyone pitches in for milking. Tom does much of the feeding and scraping, and Ryan cares for the calves and handles the breeding. One thing that Ryan has helped bring to the table is embryo work on influential cows. While they only have one dry donor on a program now, they’ve had two milk cows on at a time to help accelerate their genetic progress. Calf pens are now filled with Gold Chip, Atwood, Fever, Damion, and McCutchen calves, with many more embryos in the tank. Service sires on the breeding list now include Atwood, Gold Chip, Armani, Doorman, Equation, and Sid. Ryan tries to use a variety of sires, and uses genomics as a tool while still sticking to deep cow families. When Ryan returned to the farm, he bought some cattle on a loan to start making his genetic mark in the herd. One of his first purchases was a springing heifer from the UW-Platteville Dairy Club Sale – Glenn-Ann Morty Bella, EX-90. Bella will be nine years old this year, and Ryan is hoping to get her bred back again. She has been a tremendous flush cow, and has had three milking daughters: a VG-85 Hero two-year-old, a VG-86 Sanchez, and an EX-90 Atwood that was lost as a three-year-old from a fall on the ice. There are 15 additional heifers and additional embryos in the tank by Goldchip, Atwood and Fever. Goldwyn blood has been an outstanding cross on Bella, a strong, super front-ended cow. Ryan also has a Sid daughter from the EX-90 Atwood that is awaiting her first score. Another cow the Sonnenburgs have done embryo and IVF work on is Lylehaven Lashes-ET, VG-86 as a three-year-old. Lashes is a Fever from Lili Starbuck, and her first calves will be hitting the ground continued on page 45

2014 Holstein USA Star of the Breed It was lucky for Mike Holschbach that he listened to a friend two years ago and took a look at a Registered Holstein named Pineylawn Jasper Bethany. Mike was reading pedigrees for the Barron County, Wisconsin, Spring Sale when Jerry Muzzy stopped in. He told Mike about an exciting young cow that he had worked with at World Dairy Expo this previous fall. The owners were dispersing the herd. “He was very convincing that I need to go look at her. So I took him at his word. And when I left the barn, I knew that was a very special cow,” Mike says. Mike purchased her at the dispersal and, two years later, Bethany is Holstein Association USA’s 2014 Star of the Breed. Classified Excellent-94, she’s a consistently high producer for the Holschbach’s Heatherstone Enterprises in Baraboo, Wisconsin, peaking at 175 pounds a day and very consistent on butter fat and protein, with a reliably low SCC. In her last lactation, Bethany produced 46,920 pounds of milk with 4.5 percent fat and 2.9 percent protein. “She’s everything you want in a cow,” Mike says. “She knows her job and she’s also a cow that likes to go to shows, very willing to jump on the trailer without missing a beat. She enjoys the journey.” Mike bought Bethany at a dispersal sale for Pineylawn Acres, owned by Ed Montsma, a long-time Holstein breeder in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Ed’s father immigrated from Holland, where he raised Registered Holsteins and where Ed’s grandfather was known for walking his cows seven miles to breed them to a particular bull. Ed is thrilled by Bethany’s honor. “I always showed cattle so I always aimed for type without trying to sacrifice a lot of production those are the bulls I tried to use,” he says. A veteran semen salesman had advised him that Wilcoxview Jasper-ET (Bethany’s sire) was going to be a good bull. “So I jumped on him a little early, and lucked out I used him before he ever got hot.” Since Bethany has been at Heatherstone, she’s calved twice. One was a Maple-Downs-I GW Atwood-ET heifer she was carrying when they bought her; the other is a heifer, born in April, by their own Heatherstone Malicious-ET, a high-type genomic bull. The Holschbachs plan to flush Bethany in her current lactation, but she’ll have to wait in line for recipients behind her barnmate, another stellar Holstein: Brookhill Goldwyn Cecile, one of the few new 95-point cows this year. The Holschbachs milk 130 Registered Holsteins with a rolling herd average of about 30,408 pounds on 2x with 1267 pounds of fat and 973 pounds of protein. Their son Chase, 29, is in charge of feed and forage production on the farm’s 300 acres. He has won the World Forage Analysis Superbowl (2012, for baleage) and often places in the top five. Their daughter Brienne, 32, is a teacher and administrator for the Madison, Wisconsin, school district and a wife and mother of two. Their daughter Chelsea, 26, is an intern in DVM livestock medicine and surgery at Colorado State University, and will return to Wisconsin this summer for a residency. “We are extremely proud of our children and the young adults they have become, each passionately pursuing their own dreams,” Mike says. They have all been actively involved on the farm, showing and judging cattle. “We feel so fortunate to have raised our family on this farm.” The Holschbachs’ breeding strategy is diversified. Their best young cows are sired by Atwood, Regancrest Gv S Bradnick-ET, Apples Absolute-Red-ET and Pine-Tree Sid; their best heifers by Val-Bisson Doorman, Mr Chassity Gold Chip-ET, and the young sire of their own breeding, Heatherstone Malicious-ET. Higher genomic animals are individually mated using the current top genomic young sires. Show cows and heifers are correctively mated in hopes of creating the next “great one.” Sires include Braedale Goldwyn, Regancrest Elton Durham, Mr Atwood Brokaw, Oh-River-Syc Byway-ET, Atwood and Malicious. The remainder of the milking herd is bred to both proven and young sires. The key factors they use to select sires for this group include type, components, Productive Life, daughter pregnancy rate, sire conception rate and cow families. Heatherstone Enterprises’ farmstead gets a great deal of attention it’s a picturesque dairy along busy Route 12 between Wisconsin Dells and Madison which Valerie’s parents, Duane and Carol Jean Hegna, bought 24–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2015

in 1974. Mike grew up in Sheboygan County, where his dad managed a show herd and Mike quickly got involved in showing. After Mike and Valerie married, he worked for International Protein Sales and Service in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, for several years before coming back and purchasing Heatherstone from the Hegnas in 1994. At 80 years old, Duane still puts in his hours on the farm. Bethany placed fifth in the Midwest Spring National Show last year, and at the Midwest Fall National Show, and fourth at the Wisconsin Championship Show. “She’s coming into her own,” Mike says. “We really belive this should be her best year, because she’s aging very gracefully; she will be a very competitive aged cow.” The Holschbachs chalk up their success to attention to detail and their passion for dairying. “We’re extremely dedicated - it’s our dedication and the details that I think make a difference,” Mike says. Valerie agrees. “Mike has an extreme passion for what he is doing, and that’s the key.” reprinted from the Spring 2015 Holstein Pulse

FROM THE FIELD By Mandi Ramsburg, Holstein USA Regional Field Rep Hello Wisconsin Dairyman! My name is Mandi Ramsburg and I am the new Field Representative for Holstein Association USA Inc. where I cover the northeast region of Wisconsin and the Upper Pennisula of Michigan. I am currently residing in De Pere, Wis., and I am from Walkersville, Maryland, where my parents used to milk a small herd of Holstein dairy cattle. I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2014 with a Bachelors in Dairy Science. While I was in college I was highly active in the Virginia Tech Dairy Club, Sigma Alpha and Agronomy Club. One of my biggest highlights of college was being a member of the Virginia Tech Dairy Judging Team that won at the World Dairy Expo in 2013 and I won High Individual of the contest. After graduation, I interned at Select Sires for six months as their Dairy Progeny Intern. While I was growing up, Holstein junior activities had a big impact on my passion in the dairy industry. I was on numerous dairy bowl teams from Maryland including the senior dairy bowl team that won the national contest in 2011. I was also selected as a Distinguished Junior Member semifinalist in 2012. I am thrilled to be begin working for the Holstein Association and to also meet many of you in the near future. I hope to bring my knowledge and lending hand to assist you in bringing more value to your herds through endless services and products that we have to offer. If you need anything from me or have any questions or concerns you may contact me at (920-530-5023) or mramsburg@holstein.com. I look forward to meeting you and I will be seeing you sometime in the near future.

It is our goal to produce an efficient, healthy, strong, profitable and productive animal. We believe production is 80% management and 20% genetics. It is our philosophy to take the best care for our animals starting at birth. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Pfaffsway Sanchez Hot Toddy is a VG-86 2Y who was 2nd Senior 2-Year-Old and dam of the Junior Champion of the open and junior show, Pfaffsway Atwood Hazel Grace (winter calf). Pfaffsway Aspen Karissa is a VG-87 2Y that was 14 days fresh with her second calf and was named Intermediate & Grand Champion. Tumblweed Goldwyn Leeza is an EX-91 3Y who was also recently fresh with her third calf and won the 4-year-old class and was later named Grand Champion of the Junior Show. Leeza slipped four days later on cement and dislocated her hip. She was rushed to the University Vet Hospital in Madison where they were able to treat her injury. Unfortunately she will not be returning to her home here at Pfaffsway Farms. Her pastures are now greener in heaven. This was a very sad day for all of us here. We take great pride in owning such a wonderful, strong willed animal. She has left us a great legacy of many offspring to follow. We are happy to announce there are six embryos from Leeza due in March 2016.

Premier Breeder – District 4 Tree-Hayven Holsteins, Auburndale Adam & Aaliyah Borchert & Chelsey Karl - We would also like to thank our families and everyone that helps out with chores at the farm so we are able to go to the show. Herd Info: 65-70 cows BAA: 108.5% RHA: 2x 24,000 3.9%F 3.2%P District Show Herd: 13 head shown & 11 were homebred Current sires being used: Golden Dreams, Sid, Dempsey, Blake, Armani, Redneck, Absolute, Aftershock, Byway, Guthrie, Solomon, Defiant, Dempsey, Moregold & Durham Breeding philosophies/herd goals: Our breeding philosophy and herd goals are to breed a cow with great feet and legs, open rib, with a great udder. We also try to use bulls with milk, but we mostly lean towards more of the type side of things. Our number one goal is to keep improving! We always try to have animals at a show that represent our breeding, sort of a sneak peek of what they could expect to see if they stopped in at the farm. For example, Tree-Hayven Durham Song, who was Reserve Senior Champion and Reserve Grand Champion at our District Show just scored EX-94. For Adam, that was sort of a milestone to have a 94 pt. homebred cow from when he started farming 15 years ago. We were very honored to accept the Premier Breeder for the third time in a row this year. To us, that is what we work for every day. We are always trying to breed the next generation that will showcase our herd the following year either at a show, sales or just when visitors stop in. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Highlights included having 1st, 5th & 7th Spring Calf; 1st & 2nd Winter Calf; 4th Fall Calf; Reserve Junior Champion of the Junior Show; 1st Junior 2-Year-Old; 3rd, 5th & 10th Senior 2-Year-Old; 1st 6-Year-Old & Older who was also Reserve Senior & Reserve Grand Champion.

Sonnenburg Holsteins, continued from page 20 this fall. She was purchased from the Siemers Sale in 2012, and Ryan is excited to see her calves by Sid and Aftershock in the coming days. Milksource Shottle Alaska-ET, VG-86, is a Shottle from an EX Durham that goes back to Ashlyn that has also been flushed. Alaska has daughters by Guthrie, Dempsey, and Fever, and pregnancies on the way by Atwood. She was purchased at the Milksource Main Event Sale, and her record at 3-03 2x and 365d was 34,216M with 3.2 1078F and 2.9 1000P. Finally, Ms Adaway Goldwyn Flow-ET, VG-88, is another member of the flush team. She is in her second lactation, and has calves by Sid, Damion and Aftershock. Another outstanding milk cow, at 3-05 2x 305d she produced 26,090M with 4.1 1071F and 3.2 831P. There is no doubt that the Sonnenburg family has built a foundation to excel in the Registered Holstein business. With the exciting young stock in waiting, they are already making genetic progress in the milking herd. In May they scored 83 head, and the result was a 106.5% BAA with three EX, 37 VG and 43 GP cows. Ryan and his dad have taken considerable efforts to get the herd back to 100% registered, as papers lapsed some before Ken passed away. With the purchase of registered calves in 1999 and some determination, all of the cows are identified and at least 50% RHA. Ryan and his siblings have taken an interest in the show ring through the years, too, and enjoy exhibiting at the district and state shows and county fair. They’ve also had class winners at Junior State Fair, and although all the Sonnenburg children have graduated from Junior Holstein, a few calves still attend State Fair under the care of area youth with an interest. Some other things the Sonnenburgs have utilized to improve management include implementing the use of AgSource DM software, and pregnancy and gender checking cows with ultrasound once a month. The cows have a nice dry lot next to the barn for daily exercise, and are fed a complete feed mix in addition to TMR. Calves are weaned at roughly two months of age, and heifers are sent off-site for a few months to be bred and pastured before returning to the farm to calve. Tom and Ryan are excited to watch their genetics develop and continue breeding high type, functional Holsteins. The Sonnenburg family is on the path to do great things as the third generation becomes more involved on the homestead.

District & Championship Shows est. 1890

In its 125 years of existence, the Wisconsin Holstein Association has strived to provide its membership the opportunity to promote the Registered Holstein breed, in addition to the breeders and owners. One way that WHA has provided statewide recognition for breeders is perhaps the most widely known show of the summer - the Wisconsin State Championship Show. Established in 1960, the Wisconsin Championship Show provides the state’s elite the opportunity to compete for the title of All-Wisconsin. This year marked the 56th anniversary of the Wisconsin Championship Show, a tradition that began July 21, 1960 at the Winnebago County fairgrounds of Oshkosh, Wis. Initially dubbed the AllWisconsin Black and White Show, the inaugural event had four bull classes, four heifer classes, four milking cow classes, two dry cow classes, and a group class called District Herd. There were 257 Holsteins brought before judge Lloyd Pickard of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, representing 122 exhibitors from every district show in Wisconsin. Very different to our standards today, cattle had to receive a blue ribbon at their district show in order to compete at the All-Wisconsin show. Marsden Black Princess, All-Wisconsin aged cow, was named the Grand Champion female of the first show, and was exhibited by Christ Mayer and sons of Slinger, Wis. Other items have also changed over the years, as only the first five animals in each class were awarded ribbons. The first five juniors in each class were recognized, as well. All-Wisconsin and championship awards were, and are still, sponsored by generous supporters of Wisconsin Holstein shows. A major difference from that initial show is the number of classes, as the 2015 show had no bull or dry cow classes, but instead eight heifer classes, eight cow classes, and four group classes. Additionally, no entry fee was charged to enter the first show, whereas the fee per head for this year’s show was $30. There were only seven regulations that applied to the first show compared to the two pages of tiny text that occupied the 2015 show entry forms. Even with a challenging economy and the decline of dairy herd numbers in Wisconsin, it is refreshing to know that numbers exhibiting at the WI Championship Show have remained constant, averaging over 200 cattle shown each year. Another thing that has remained constant is the cooperation and hard work of the chairmen and volunteers that donate selfless hours for the betterment of the Wisconsin Holstein breed. As the show has continued to modernize with the times, the decision was made to bring it to Madison, Wis., in 2015, the year after the New Holland Pavilions made their debut at the Alliant Energy Center and the 2014 World Dairy Expo. This revolutionary facility allows the entire show, including all cattle, show ring, milking facilities and more, to be held under one roof. The Wisconsin Holstein Association’s Board of Directors is excited to utilize this new, state-of-the-

art facility to house the Wisconsin Championship Show through 2017 and possibly beyond. The Wisconsin Championship Show has become one of the premier shows in the Midwest. As the industry continues to change and evolve, Wisconsin Holstein hopes to provide its breeders of Registered Holsteins the opportunity to continue showing at a high level to receive the recognition they deserve.

Who is your favorite Wisconsin champion?

“The long list of past champions of the Wisconsin Championship Show is impressive, to say the least. My pick would be Marsden Black Princess, Champion of the first two shows. This EX-95 All-American 4-Year-Old 1959 and Reserve All-American 1960 was light years ahead of her time and was the first cow ever to be classified 100 points


in the mammary system. She still could capture Best Udder rosettes. The Mayers started off the Championship Show series with three years of Champions, and the next generations are still making winners today!” Tom Morris, Tom Morris Ltd. “When Laura approached me with this subject my first thought was what a great idea and yes I would be proud to participate. Then reality set in, how do we select just one outstanding Grand Champion State Show winner? I decided to take a slightly different approach. Which cow impressed me the most. I’ll need Roy Hetts to help me out with the year. The show was in Wausau and judged by Roy Ormston [Roybrook]. Roy, to say the least, was very thorough. He gave every entry a good long look and then did it again. There were few disagreements with the judges placings, just the time it took him to accomplish his job. People were loading up their heifers and going home long before the show was completed. By the time the cows were being shown, the fitters’ [at that time most breeders and family did much of their own fitting] bagging schedules were being stretched. Most of the cows were bagged beyond ideal. When the Grand Champion candidates were finally being circled the udders were stretched, cows were leaking, cows were dancing around their udders and seams were disappearing. All except Champion cow Gene Acres Felicia May Fury. The great Aged Cow was looking better the more hours of milk she held. Her udder was an all-time great and she stood tall as Grand Champion as the other contenders were breaking down. Felicia May was truly one of the greatest Champions.” Ron Schaap, Pinehurst/Holstein Classifier/Dairy Agenda Today “Budjon Redmarker Desire. Desire was just three weeks fresh with twins that summer and had been low in phosphorus and calcium. We took the IV out of her the morning of the show. That year was also a special year when Desire and Scientific Debutante Rae, both homebred cows, were Champion and Reserve at our state show and World Dairy Expo.” Tom Cull, Budjon Farms, Lomira “I have two - Budjon Roburke Crusader, because she was always my favorite cow. And Robrook Goldwyn Cameron - she was just 14 days fresh when she won in 2013 and I couldn’t believe the job Tom had done getting her ready.” Butch Ridge, Bar-Rus Holsteins “When I think back to the earlier era compared to today, I think you are comparing apples to oranges as the breed has changed so much. Therefore I have two - Gene Acres Felicia May Fury historically and Robrook Goldwyn Cameron for today.” Dan Cnossen, Four-of-a-Kind Partners/Holstein Classifier “Robrook Goldwyn Cameron. She was a cow with a great balance of strength and dairyness and one of the best rear uddered cows of all time.” Lynn Harbaugh, Bella-View Holsteins/NorthStar Cooperative

Willows-Edge Hosts Successful Wisconsin Holstein Picnic A warm and sunny summer day welcomed over 200 guests to the pristine Willows-Edge Holstein farm in New Richmond on Sunday, August 2. The picnic started at 11:00 a.m., when guests were invited to enjoy a delicious brunch and partake in the judging contest. Henk and Bonnie also offered 60 lots of high-quality Holsteins on a tag sale, which ran the duration of the picnic. Attendees had the chance to see the Van Dyk’s 111.8 BAA herd, which boasts 55 Excellent and 55 Very Good cows. Unique to this year’s event was a dunk tank, which raised over $300 for the Wisconsin Holstein Junior program. Guests had the opportunity to dunk some of Wisconsin’s Holstein stars, including National Representative R. Paul Buhr, Jr., WHA Board member Marci Walker (fill-in for Chris McCullough), past board members Todd Stanek and Bob Traynor, and Director Larry Nelson. Board member Craig Carncross led the program for the afternoon. Craig welcomed the crowd and introduced the Van Dyk family and thanked them for hosting this year’s event. Also in attendance were WHA Princess Sierra Lurvey, WHA Princess Attendant Cierra Ehrke-Essock, and WHA board president

Paula Bovre. Raffle ticket winners were also drawn, and judging contest winners announced. A special cow print was raffled off, again with proceeds benefiting the junior program. The winner of this print was Pam Selz-Pralle. A few other exciting features of the picnic included Best of the St. Croix Valley Redneck Juice from Sportsman’s Bar and an Artesian Cheese Table from Bass Lake Cheese Factory. It was a day full of fun and Holsteins in northwest Wisconsin, and the perfect place to be to continue the 125-year celebration of the Wisconsin Holstein Association.

Cierra’s Insights on Holstein Highlights

Hello Holstein enthusiasts! What a busy summer it has been! Back in July, Sierra and I attended the State Championship Show where the best of Wisconsin paraded the New Holland Pavilions. Congratulations to all of the breeders and exhibitors! Also during the month, we attended county fairs. We handed out awards, helped in birthing and discovery barns, and continued to advocate the dairy industry at Futurity shows. One of my favorite things about the summer is watching the Futurity entries develop from calves to top producing cows, and the exhibitors showing off their best outfits of the summer! In early August, we traveled up to New Richmond for the State Holstein Picnic. I’d like to thank the Van Dyk family for hosting a fun and exciting gathering for our association. The Junior Activities

Committee had a great turn out for their judging contest, and Sierra and I had a lot of fun with the kids and our scavenger hunt. It was great to see so many members come together for an afternoon of food and fun! Later in the month, we spent four days at the Wisconsin State Fair. After two days at the junior show, I’d like to congratulate all of our junior members on a job well done. I’d also like to congratulate all of the breeders and exhibitors of the WHA Futurity and open show. It’s also that time of year to finish up your Junior Award forms. 12 and Under, YDJM, and DJM forms are due September 15th. The Royalty deadline has changed for this year and is also due September 15. Dairy Bowl, Dairy Jeopardy, Speaking, Essay, Long Range Production, Junior Progressive Breeder, Junior Trip and WHY Friend entries are due November 15th. We also look forward to seeing you at World Dairy Expo, September 29th through October 3rd. The International Junior Holstein Show will start at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 29th, and the International Holstein Show and Futurity will take place Saturday, October 3rd. Best of luck to our Wisconsin exhibitors as they get their cattle ready for the international stage! May your harvests be bountiful, and happy farming! Cierra Ehrke-Essock

ACKY WPoint of View Editor’s Comments

I hope everyone had a great summer. This issue is a review of all that happened with Wisconsin Holstein this past summer - from District and Championship Shows, to the National Convention and State Picnic, I hope you’ll enjoy reading all about it. And watch for more next month as we wrap up the State Fair and WHA Futurity. We’ve tried to include many photos in this issue of all the events, but if you’d like to see more please visit the Wisconsin Holstein Association Facebook page. And “like” our page to be kept up to date on all that’s happening in the association. If you would like a print or email copy of any photos taken at shows this summer, please contact me or the WHA office at 1-800-223-4269. There are lots of big advertising opportunities coming up yet this fall. We will be sending extra copies of the October issue to World Dairy Expo (also a Midwest Holsteins issue) so this is a nice one to advertise in as you’ll get some extra coverage for your ad dollars. Also coming up is the 2016 Breeder Calendar. Months are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if you are thinking about advertising, please give me a call to reserve your preferred month. This feature is a popular hand-out at our booth at WDE and will be inserted in the November issue. And don’t forget about the Red & White and Youth issues coming up in November and December. There is still plenty of time to take advantage of the 125th Anniversary Advertising special - $125 off your fourth full page ad run during the year. Please call for more information. A reminder that we’ll be looking for entries in our annual Cover Contest this fall. There is no theme this year, and if you’d like to submit a photo, please email a 300 dpi or higher, high quality print to lauraw@wisholsteins. com or mail a 5x7 or larger print to PO Box 49, Lancaster, WI 53813. Until next time...
