Together, the two farmed for 61 years, the last 56 of those years in Richland County’s Eagle Township. Virgil had a passion for Registered Holsteins. He was a proud 4-H parent and enjoyed the many family friendships that he and Linda developed through their work as Richland County dairy producers. In 1985, the couple hosted one of Richland County’s first annual dairy breakfasts. He especially enjoyed hosting international visitors to the farm. Virgil and Linda sold their milking herd in 1997.

Ellen Handschke

Ellen Louisa (Seversen) Handschke, 60, passed away peacefully in her Redgranite home surrounded by her family on August 1, following a lengthy illness. Ellen was born on December 9, 1955, in Chicago, IL, to Thomas and (the late) Helga Seversen. She attended Luther North High School until her family relocated to New London, Wis., in December 1972. In 1973 she graduated from New London High School and then attended UW-Green Bay for business management. Ellen married Bryen Handschke of New London, Wis., on November 1, 1975. They claim their biggest blessing was having three children: Charlotte, Wesley (Jodi), and Bradley (Samantha Gooding) and six beautiful grandchildren: Mason, Jenna, Carson, Whitney, Jordan and Braeden. This city girl turned country and never looked back. Bryen and Ellen were best friends and great partners, raising their three children at Hope Acres Dairy Farm near Poy Sippi, Wis., where they successfully farmed for nearly 30 years. Ellen, even though having grown up in the big city of Chicago, became the cow person of Hope Acres Dairy and eventually convinced Bryen to purchase their first Registered Holstein in 1985. She was always a very strong supporter of her children showing animals at the district shows and the WI State Fair. Ellen also enjoyed sewing, knitting, baking cheesecakes/pies/ cookies and skiing. She loved animals and showing cows... but once grandchildren arrived, they became her true joy! Through the years she was an active member of many clubs and committees such as being a 4-H leader and vice-president of AMPI Woman’s District 10B. Ellen is survived by her loving husband, children and grandchildren, her father, sisters Nancy Woeshnick and Ingrid (Tom) Hemesath, her Aunt Beverly Seversen and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Visitation and funeral were held on Friday, August 5 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Saxeville, Wis. The family would like to especially thank all of the employees of Southern Care Hospice and Dr. Caves of Wild Rose Clinic. We couldn’t have provided Mom with such compassionate care in her last six weeks with us if it wouldn’t have been for their assistance, laughter and support. We are forever grateful to you.

From your President Kevin Jorgensen Greetings fellow Holstein breeders! It has been a full summer for you I am sure and certainly has been for WHA. I want to thank the entire WHA staff, WHA royalty and the Junior Activities Committee for all of their efforts this summer. They assisted with nine successful district shows, helped coordinate the first ever WI Championship Junior Show as well as all the junior events at state show, assisted at Junior State Fair, coordinated the State Holstein Futurity at State Fair and our state picnic. All of these events were highly successful and they all deserve a heartfelt thank you from all of us that participate in these events. Thanks also to the counties that hosted our district shows and all the local chairs and volunteers. We couldn’t do it without you. We live in interesting times. We have a presidential election that seems to get more bizarre by the day, our cities are in turmoil with the argument that some lives matter more than others when we should understand that all lives are special and that laws are meant to be followed. Just because we don’t like something, it doesn’t give anyone the right to burn the city to the ground. The riots are occurring as I write this and I mention it because it ties in with a message I want to talk about this month. I love summer and I love shows. Whether that is exhibiting, judging or just watching, these are events that I think bring out the best in our business. Unfortunately, it also brings out another side in people as well. I understand it, we are all passionate about the work we put into getting cattle ready and we all have our opinions on what the ideal cow is or isn’t. It is fun to discuss what each of us might do if we were in the middle of the ring. Quite frankly, however, I have been a bit disappointed in the Monday morning quarterbacking I have heard about our shows this summer. It is one thing to talk respectfully that you may have changed a placing or two in a show of over 100 head. It is entirely another to indict the official that was voted on by the exhibitors to judge any respective show. The most alarming thing is that I heard it about nearly every show. To me it is as appalling as the violence I am watching in the streets of our cities. We can have different opinions but we need to be respectful of our judges and the exhibitors who come out on top. It really hit home with me when I was talking to a young breeder at our state show that is an extremely talented cowman. We were talking about judging and he stated “I’d love to do it but I don’t want all my neighbors and friends hacked off at me at the end of the day, so I guess I am not interested.” If more people begin to think that judging isn’t worth the aggravation, where does our future lie? We are better than this and I ask that win, lose or draw, congratulate the winners and thank the judge for spending the day placing the show. We are a fraternal business and that is for one why I am in this industry. Congratulations to everyone who had success this summer. We truly have the greatest cows, kids and people in the business. Best Regards, KJ

2016 Wisconsin Championship Show The 57th annual Wisconsin Championship Show was held at the New Holland Pavilion on the Alliant Energy Center grounds in Madison, Wis., July 28-30. With the continuation of the Red & White Show, along with the addition of a separate Junior Show and the Jersey Show, this year’s event was bigger and better than ever. Judge Carl Phoenix placed 169 head during the open Holstein show, including 99 heifers and 70 cows. Rosiers Blexy Goldwyn-ET took home Senior and Grand Champion honors for Clark Woodmansee III, Tim & Sharyn Abbott & Henry & Carolyn Van Exel. Reserve Champion honors went to Milk Source LLC and Weeks Dundee Anika. When selecting his champions, Judge Phoenix commented “These cows are phenomenal, they are on the money today. It’s not very often that I say something like this, but they send shivers up your spine. Like I said in class, I like the height and width of rear udder on the first place five-year-old, and she has a better fore udder. I prefer the fullness at the top of the rear udder and the shape of the rear udder.” Intermediate Champion went to the winning Senior 3-year-old, Beaverbrock Goldwyn Zoey-ET exhibited by Milk Source LLC. Reserve Champion was Mapel Wood Windhammer Elegance exhibited by Whitney Ebert. Judge Phoenix said “For me, (she’s) a cow that just puts it all together. You just love her frame and balance all the way through her frame. She has the advantage today in her fore udder attachment and the balance of her rear quarters.” He went on to say the reserve champion had an advantage in the way she holds her topline. “When she stands in line she’s just a little leveler all the way through and has more depth of fore rib.” The heifer show was held on Friday, July 29. Selected as Junior Champion was the winning Fall Yearling, Greenlark Lucille Atwood exhibited by Peter and Lyn Vail and Budjon Farms. Adam Borchert’s winning Winter Yearling, Tree-Hayven Moregold Design, was selected as Reserve Junior Champion. Judge Phoenix commented, “We have an exceptional group of heifers. I think for me, these three heifers pull it all together. Heifers that are extremely well balanced with exceptional feet and legs. The senior yearling wins it for me today, holding it all together. She’s stronger all the way through, wider through her chest and all the way through and longer in her neck. The winter yearling is just more heifer and carries herself nicer through her front, longer in through her chine and love the way her neck comes into her shoulders.” Premier Exhibitor honors went to Milksource Genetics and Ryan-Vu Holsteins was named Premier Breeder. Congratulations to all of the exhibitors and thank you to all of the show and trophy sponsors that helped make the show a success.

Memories by Maurice In honor of Geraldine Cooper Beginning this month, we will be featuring a fun memory from Wisconsin Holstein’s past for members to answer and return by the 15th of each month. Correct answers will be put into a random drawing for a $25 gi card sponsored by Culver’s restaurant. Junior members with a correct answer will also earn an additional $100 in Holsti-Bucks per correct answer. Maurice Cooper, DeForest, came up with the idea of celebrating WHA members and their Holsteins with this fun, interactive corner for us as members to enjoy for the next year.

We still sell 50 cows per year so we need to appeal to a diverse market. What has changed is we are looking for bulls that have more style and we are trying to maintain or improve our butterfat percent above 4%. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Willows-Edge Dundee Impulse, EX-90 3Y, is from a VG-88 Goldwyn, then Linjet Icon EX-94 EX-MS, plus 6 more generations of VG and EX dams; she was Grand Champion, Best Udder & Champion Bred & Owned. The three yearlings that won their classes are all from the “M” family where most of our previous nominations have come from.

Premier Breeder & Exhibitor – District 2 Welsh-Edge Holsteins, Viroqua Ralph & Sheila Petersheim Family Herd Info: 80 cows BAA: 109.3% RHA: 2x 22,000 3.7%F 3.0%P District Show Herd: 9 head shown & all were homebred Current sires being used: Golden Dreams, Hotrod, Dempsey, Guthrie, Adonis Breeding philosophies/herd goals: We breed for a balanced cow with longevity. When mating we utilize aAa and feel it is a valuable and unbiased tool for breeding sound cows. Because the cows do last we are able to sell 15-30 first and second lactation animals a year for dairy purposes. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: All of the six milking cows shown except the aged cow are from the same “Ginger” family. The 1st place Junior 3 and the 2nd place Senior 3 are full sisters (Super Large x EX Shot Al x EX-93 Stormatic x Durham Gingerheart), they are both VG-88 and were Grand and Reserve Champions of the Junior Show. The 2nd place Senior 3 stood behind an awesome Braxton from Pfaffsway that was Grand Champion. The 1st place Junior 2 is a Goldwyn maternal sister to 2x All-American, Welsh-Edge Fever Huggable EX-92. And the 1st place 5 year old is bred and owned by our son David and is a 4th generation EX for him. The foundation cow of this show string “Ginger” lived to be 16 was EX-90 4E at 15-4 and made 316,000 lifetime. Most of her daughters lived into their teens with 3 EX, 5 VG and 4 GP. One of those EX daughters was WelshEdge D Gingerheart EX-92 4E DOM at 12-2. She made 235,850 lifetime milk and had all 25 daughters scored - 14 of which were EX, 9 VG and 2 GP. Gingerheart died at 14, but of her daughters still in the herd, 3 are EX-93 and are 8, 10 and 11 years old. These are the kind of numbers we get excited about!

Premier Breeder & Exhibitor – District 3 Gildale Holsteins, Hollandale Mark Gilbertson Erik & Brenda Gilbertson and children Makenna (5), Elise (3) & Naydeen (1) Herd Info: 50 cows BAA: 110.1% RHA: 2x 21,500 3.8%F 3.1%P District Show Herd: 10 head shown & all were homebred Current sires being used: Sid, Aftershock, Atwood, Absolute-Red, Armani, Goldsun, Gold Chip, Dempsey, Hypnotic, Damion, Brokaw, Destry, Guthrie Breeding philosophies/herd goals: Our goal is to breed cows for amazing feet and legs and udders with type that stand out from the rest. Longevity is important with a youthful look. We see so much focus across the breed on rear udder height and width, but I feel that the pin height of rumps has not been consistent. Because of this, I worry about breeding problems. We have used great bulls that developed well for us in the past years. We strive for first or second service pregnancies mated to top of the line sires instead of turning to fertile unproven bulls. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: A foundation cow family of our herd was Bridgewood Stardust Barbie (EX-93) bred in Canada. Her descendants breed the tall, great legs and youthful udders. Junior 2-year-old, Gildale Sid Barbo (VG-87) has a promising future. We are also excited about the calves shown tracing back to Barbie. Another cornerstone cow to us is Gildale Storm Marie (EX-93) and her family with amazing udders that milk and stand out in the barn. The heifers may not be show type yet but after calving in, watch out - they are dairy.

Premier Breeder & Exhibitor – District 4 Selz-Pralle Dairy, Humbird Scott, Pam, Nicole & Jessica Pralle Herd Info: 342 cows RHA: 3x 31,186 3.95 1229 3.11 970 46 EX, 136 VG, 109 GP & 6 GP District Show Herd: 15 head shown & 10 were homebred Current sires being used: Byway, Doorman, Monteray, McCutchen, KingBoy, Sympatico, Cotton Breeding philosophies/herd goals: When breeding cows, we focus on the two primary markets that generate the most income for Selz-Pralle Dairy - milk and dairy sales. We mate each cow individually aiming for a balance of production, type and index traits. Each cow has different potential value, and we mate to accentuate that potential. We also breed cows for their environment. Critical type traits for the environment are locomotion, front end strength, and udders. Agility will keep a cow competitive in the freestall environment and dairy strength will keep the cow healthy at high production levels and competitive at the feed bunk. For years, the herd has been marketed as one with “udders that work and wear”. This is a key belief for us and we continue to breed for it. Breeding decisions affecting our production and classification result from a two-targeted approach: Use breed leading sires and capitalize on strong cow families. The proof is in the results! We still like tall cows which keeps their udders higher off the freestall floor. And, we believe that having taller cows gives them more room for capacious udders that will meet our goal of shipping 120 lbs./cow daily. We sell about 20% of the milking herd annually for dairy. Customers want functional cows and the groups average 90-100 lbs./day. Repeat customers seem to like our style of cows - high producing, balanced type, excellent udders, and strong feet and legs. We also sell about 80 breeder bulls and are sold out most of the time. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: 1st 150,000 lb. Cow, Res.

Premier Breeder & Exhibitor – District 5 Rosedale Genetics Ltd., Oxford Mark, Nicky & Paradise Rueth; trainee Hidetoshi District Show Herd: 10 head shown & 8 were homebred Current sires being used: Diamondback, Solomon, Crush, Avalanche & Absolute Breeding philosophies/herd goals: We breed for type, udders, feet & legs and feed for production. As we milk our own cows and our herd is relatively small, we will use a bull that we know how he transmits rather than the young genomic bull of the week. Comment on the animals that contributed to the winning of this award: Six of the 10 head exhibited were from the Redrose (EX-96 4E) family. The winning Fall Calf is a daughter of Lexington, EX-95 2E. The 1st 4-Year-Old and Senior Champion is from the Paradise (EX-96 2E) family. Arolene Goldwyn Divine was Intermediate and Grand Champion and her calf by Soloman was 1st spring calf. There were also two head we sold and exhibited by others that were from the Blackrose (EX-96 3E) family.

To Moms working off the farm... thanks for juggling your job and coming home to the farm and family! Mothering the next generation is one of the greatest accomplishments and opportunities of life and is the foundation to a good society! Pass on your best qualities to the next generation and God bless you with strength and wisdom!

A special tribute to Russ Madson, August 17, 1938 - August 2, 2016 In 2000 Russ and Natalie Madson had a dispersal auction. Their son Mark bought a heifer and allowed us to house her and get into the family that brought us Carrie! This made a great impact to our herd but my last visit to Russ was of greater value! A few days before he passed, as we were visiting he shared how great the blessing is of reaching this point of life and not needing to fear passing to the next life because we know Jesus Christ and that He has forgiven our sins!! Friends – whatever we may or may not accomplish in life the only thing that matters in the end is to know this blessing!! Press on in doing good and remember... As always... Success is not what we achieve, but enjoying God’s blessings one at a time!

Calumet Holstein Association a Leader in Innovation Preserved Records Document Series of Achievements By Ray Mueller

When the owners of Holstein-Friesian cows in Calumet County formed a breeders association during a meeting on Saturday, Sept. 29, 1917 at the former Opera House building in Chilton, they did so for multiple reasons. A document recalling that event cited a couple of reasons that are as relevant today as they were then – “to promote good fellowship among breeders and to promote the general interests of the Holstein – Friesian breed of cattle.” This included breeding and promoting high grade and purebred Holsteins and helping members buy, use, and sell them. As the 100th anniversary of its founding approaches, the Calumet County association is preparing to host the 2017 Wisconsin Holstein Convention on February 24 to 26 at the Paper Valley Hotel and Convention Center in Appleton. First Meeting Resume The official minutes of the breeders’ first meeting, which are the first entry of handwritten accounts of all annual membership and board of director meetings in a ledger that covers 1917 to 1967, indicate that this meeting was called to order by J.J. Garland, who was the county's emergency demonstration agriculture agent (a term associated with World War I). A special guest at the organizational meeting was Wisconsin Holstein Breeders Association vice-president S.H. Bird. He cited the experience of Holstein breeders in neighboring Fond du Lac County who placed ads for their cattle and were so overwhelmed with orders within two weeks that they withdrew the ads and began to consider the construction of a sales pavilion. The Calumet association signed 18 charter member farmers who owned a total of more than 200 head of Holsteins. There were also two honorary members – veterinarian Royal Klofanda, who was the first secretary for the group and who would soon be the county’s Extension Service agriculture agent, and William M. Knauf, whose family owned and operated four area feed mills. By the time of the next meeting on December 1, 1917, the membership had already grown to 38. The annual dues payment for membership was $1. Specific Concerns Particular concerns of the Holstein breeders a century ago were to seek favorable legislation, equitable freight rates, and uniform classification at fairs. They also intended to “raise the standards of excellence of the breed” by discussing the best methods of breeding and rearing cattle, and through exhibiting and other activities, to acquaint the public with “the good qualities and exceptional merit of the breed.” At the time, Holsteins were not the most popular breed of dairy cattle in Calumet County. Guernseys were most numerous at the time. It wasn't until 25 years later that one census of dairy cattle credited Holsteins with 51.7 percent of the more than 25,000 dairy cows in the county by the early 1940s. Milk Mottoes Although there is no specific reference to the fact in the meeting minutes, it was also in 1917 that Royal Klofanda coined the phrase proclaiming the county as “The Milk Vein of the World” – a motto which the county used to promote itself for next six decades or more – at least into the early 1980s. That Klofanda, who served as the agriculture agent until 1921, remained closely affiliated with the county's Holstein – Friesian Breeders Association, is indicated in a report for 1923-24, when the group had 125 members and a motto of “We breed Holsteins that pay.” Klofanda was the president at the time with Anton Molg of Chilton as the vice-president. Other officers were treasurer John Seybold and secretary Leonard Seybold of the Forest Junction area and directors A. T. Hipke of New Holstein and Frank Kloehn of Hilbert. Leonard Seybold became the secretary in 1923 and served 40–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2016

in that position until Leonard Mirsberger took over in early 1949. Milk Testing Organizations Even before the county’s Holstein association was formed, some dairy farmers began to have their milk tested for butterfat and to record milk production, according to a resume titled “Dairying in Calumet County” that was written in about 1970 by Orrin Meyer, who was the county's agriculture agent from 1945 to 1973. Meyer credited Roy Harris and H.C. Searles of the Wisconsin College of Agriculture at Madison with selecting Oscar Kossman, who was a Farm Short Course student, to introduce milk production testing in Calumet County during 1915. Kossman was a native of Sheboygan who was working on a Jefferson County dairy farm before attending the Short Course. Kossman organized the Chilton Cow Testing Association (CTA) for members who paid $1 per cow per year. He was paid $30 a month and was given one benefit – hay and oats for his horse. Most herds had 15 to 25 cows at the time. Kossman then stayed in Calumet County to become a dairy farmer by 1924 with Holstein and Guernsey cows. Meyer indicated that Calumet County once had six local cow testing associations but that all but one of them were disbanded when their fieldmen answered a call to serve in World War II. He noted that the testing fieldmen such as Kossman typically “lived in” with the association patrons and often helped with farm and household chores, including baby-sitting. Only four of the farms on Kossman’s early route had a milking machine (before the arrival of electric power). The Chilton testing association also had a few members with New Holstein and Hilbert post office addresses. According to its annual reports, it had a high point of 29 members with 562 cows on test – 109 registered and 453 grades representing several dairy breeds. CTA's Annual Reports CTA’s first annual report, for 1923-24, was in a pocketbook format. It noted that the association’s motto was “Not more but better cows.” Willard Riehl, who was CTA’s tester at the time, described Calumet County as “The Garden Spot of Wisconsin” – an appellation also made in the premium book for the 1919 Calumet County Fair. The CTA also inserted a bit of humor in its annual reports. After listing the highest producing cows and their owners, it had a bottom line entry giving an owner's name of “Unprofitable” for a herd average of 4,789 pounds of milk per cow and 167 pounds of butterfat. By 1928-29, the CTA had renamed itself as the Chilton DHIA and had a motto of “Better Cows – Larger Profits.” But the CTA ran into difficulty maintaining testers – having made four hires in a period of less than two years before hiring Rudy Rosenau, who was its tester during 1929-30. The organization did, however, collect and report lots of data from its members. Of the 28 members for the 1929 report, 10 had a milkhouse on the farm and 6 had a milk machine (the remainder milked by hand). Rolling herd averages for the year were 7,711 pounds of milk and 311 pounds of butterfat (milk testing for protein was many decades away). No later records are available on the fate of the Chilton DHIA.


Unique All-Holstein Venture It was in March of 1935 that the county’s Holstein Breeders took a bold step. It was the formation of what was the first and perhaps the only all-Holstein dairy herd improvement association (DHIA) in Wisconsin or anywhere. Addressing an apparent testing void, the association filled it during a March 19, 1935 meeting when members were signed up during five hours of solicitation. That’s according to a reminiscences report written in early 1944 by Alfred C. Fyksen, who served as the all-Holstein DHIA's supervisor for all of its nine years. The minutes of that March 19, 1935 meeting indicated that the same team of officers would oversee both the county’s Holstein association and its new All-Holstein DHIA. Testing equipment was purchased for $10.20. At a meeting on March 12, 1936, which drew an attendance of 28, Fyksen was instructed to provide publicity only to Holsteins in his annual report on the DHIA. Annual Reports In its first written report, which covered the years 1935 to 1940, the county’s all-Holstein DHIA used such promotional phrases as Big Black and White Cow, Holstein Milk Vitality, Holsom Holstein Milk, and Foster Mother of the Human Race in referring to the breed. The organization’s final report, which covered 1940 to 1944, noted that 56 percent of the Holsteins it was testing in 1941-42 were registered, that 51.7 percent of the dairy cows in Calumet County were Holsteins, and that Holsteins were the top breed for providing vitamin A in their milk. By 1943, the all-Holstein DHIA was testing 360 Registered Holsteins and 221 grades. That report also noted that association still had 21 of its original members (a number not given but probably in the high 20s). Registry Procedures At the beginning of 1944, there were 11 DHIA herds employing artificial insemination. Ten Holstein breeders were enrolled in the Herd Improvement Registry program, which was the forerunner of the whole herd Dairy Herd Improvement Registry (DHIR). Two Holstein breeders in Calumet County were participating in a more expensive Advanced Registry (AR) program through which individual cows were tested monthly under the direct supervision of a land grant college, agricultural experiment station, or DHI affiliate tester. This preceded the setting of the 305-day standard was set for reporting production during one lactation. Production records of the cows on AR testing were eligible for dairy breed herd books and the later listing of pedigrees. Nine-Year Achievements In his “Final Report” for the all-Holstein DHIA, covering the years 1940-44, Fyksen also cited numerous activities other than milk testing – many of them innovative and precedent-setting – that were carried out by the county's association during the previous nine years. During what he considered to be “a short time, we have accomplished much,” he stated. Fyksen’s report credited the Calumet County Holstein Breeders with organizing the first community event which became known later as the “Black and White Shows,” holding a state Holstein picnic in conjunction with one of them, starting a tri-county Black and White Show which became a model for the state, sending a group of cattle to a major show sponsored by the Wisconsin Dairymen’s Association in Appleton, and having a twilight barn meeting. The county’s Holstein breeders also sponsored a 4-H club for boys and girls who had Holstein calves as dairy projects, organized a 4-H calf rodeo at the county fair, promoted the sale of 4-H bull calves at the fair, and set up an educational booth at the fair, Fyksen’s report indicated. Later in 1943, the county Holstein breeders conducted their first “400 Sale” – an event that continued through 1993 with a name of Calumet Classic in its final years. Starting mainly with young bulls, its premise was to sell cattle that were the progeny of cows with a history of single lactation productions of at least 400 pounds of butterfat, which had been the criterion for comparisons of dairy cattle production for several preceding decades.

County DHIA History With the shutdown of the all-Holstein DHIA in early 1944, the Calumet Cooperative DHIA was organized at a meeting on May 17, 1944 which had 110 attendees. Officers of the new DHIA were president Theodore Christoph, vice-president Otto Moehrke, and secretary-treasurer Carl Neitzke, who was the county’s agriculture agent from 1943 to 1945. Wenzel Wenig, Ed Seybold, and F. W. Behnke were the additional directors. Ted Habel and Bernard Te Vrucht were the fieldmen. Hilda Custer (or Kuster) and Jean Nachtwey were the laboratory technicians. Initial testing fees for a herd of 15 cows for one year were $36 for standard testing, $21 for owner-sampler testing, and $28.50 for a combination. A 5 percent discount was offered for payments a year in advance. By the spring of 1945, the Calumet County DHIA had nearly 200 members. The county ranked 5th in Wisconsin with 20 percent of its dairy cows on production testing. The largest herds in the county on test had 33 to 35 cows. In the 1945 report, the county DHIA proclaimed “we are what we are to udders.” For the testing year concluding in the spring of 1945, a 5-yearold cow in the Leonard Mirsberger herd at St. John had the top milk production lactation with 18,528 pounds along with 621 pounds of butterfat. Taking the butterfat honors, with 726 pounds, along with 18,047 pounds of milk, was a 10 year-old cow in Ed Seybold’s herd near Forest Junction. Joe Keuler Jr.’s herd of 17 cows at Kiel posted the year’s top averages of 13,924 pounds of milk and 477pounds of butterfat. Testing Laboratory Moves The testing laboratory was in the basement of the building which is still the Chilton post office today. Orrin Meyer credited himself with “skillful maneuvering” to keep the testing laboratory there until July 1 of 1967. During the previous week, the Calumet DHIA was merged into the Agricultural Records Cooperative (ARC). Milk samples were then taken to ARC's laboratory at Bonduel and then to a laboratory at Berlin, which was equipped with a new Milko-Tester. On August 14, 1969, testing returned to Calumet County with the opening of a laboratory in the leased and refurbished former bank building in Hilbert, which was also equipped with a Milko-Tester, Meyer's report concluded. Today, most of the milk testing in Calumet County is conducted through AgSource (a successor of ARC) or with North Star Select Sires, an artificial insemination cooperative. Both organizations offer have techniques which can test milk not only for butterfat and protein but also for somatic cell count (a check for mastitis), nitrogen use efficiency, pregnancy status of the cow, and some bovine diseases. In 2014, more than 18,000 of the just over 44,000 licensed dairy herds in the United States were on a DHIA testing program. This accounted for about 4.35 million cows or 47 percent of the nation's total. Member Longevity The county’s cooperative DHIA report for 1976 recognized five members who had been members since its inception in 1944. They were Holstein breeders Victor Geiser, who served several years as the cooperative's president, Gregory Geiser, Clemens Geiser, and Herbert Bastian along with Guernsey breeders Theodore and Elmer Federwitz. In its comprehensive report for 1935 to 1940, the all-Holstein DHIA stated that it was dedicated to “The Man in Overalls... who besides being a master in the art of dairying is one who has grasped the fundamentals of a business which is a science and an art – that of producing the most necessary of all foods – MILK.”

Mark your calendars!

Calumet County will be hosting the 2017 Wisconsin Holstein Convention - February 24-25 at the Radisson Paper Valley in Appleton.

BREEDER PROFILES

District 7 Holstein Breeders by Jessica Steger, WHA Summer Intern

R-R Letters Bob & Russ Letter, Seymour

J

ust outside of Seymour in Outagamie County you will find the location of the first barn meeting for the Wisconsin Holstein Association. R & R Letters’ 200-acre farm was purchased in 1987 by Bob and Lucille, and is now owned by their son Russ. They also have a young hired hand who helps with milking and the calves. “We started farming because of the love for the Holstein cow,” said Russ. Their herd of 70 Holsteins is evidence of the love they have for the Holstein breed. They said they would not be farming if it was not for Registered Holsteins. Russ picked his first Registered Holstein from a pen of 40 heifers on a special day off of school. Russ’ first homebred Excellent cow is from this first heifer, and her impact continues with an VG-88 two-year-old Sid. Both Bob and Russ have been actively involved in the Holstein Association as well as the dairy industry in general. Bob served on the 4-H board, Outagamie County Holstein Breeders Board, and four terms on the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. Russ also served as a part of the Outagamie County Holstein Breeders Board. They don’t miss a Holstein event within 100 miles, and Bob has only missed one World Dairy Expo and one state Holstein Convention since 1987. The Letters have several management techniques they could not live without. A strict schedule is a vital part to the operation. To maintain an active schedule of their own as well as the cows’ schedule, they milk the cows at 4 a.m. They are then able to milk the cows and attend almost any event in the area. Russ prides himself on a somatic cell count of about 50,000 and is always under 100,000. He retains a low cell count by preventing quarters from being over milked. Although the barn has automatic take-offs, cows with high cell count are watched closer. This vigilance has allowed them to have one of the lowest cell counts in the area for several months including this past June. Additionally, they put special emphasis on herd health. “You are not checking for pregnant cows. You are looking for open cows.” said Russ. They have used ultrasounding since the technology first came to the area. Ultrasounding allows them to detect cows that need special reproductive attention sooner. Russ finds it important to the herd to gain the trust of the animals.

R-R Letters Rubens Koreen EX-93 42–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2016

He has the hired help brush the calves and halter breaks each calf after weaning. This special attention allows for easier and safer handling later in the animal’s life. The herd is fed solely by the 200 acres they live on. The Letters have had the same agronomist since 1989, and they attribute their crop success to him. Bob and Russ stressed the importance of having an agronomist and tiling the fields. With all of their success, the last time they purchased feed, other than minerals, was 1996. With the good yields they see in the field they are able to have extra feed stored and sell some feed. They use the feed they grow to create a ration that promotes good milk production. Having good cattle is important to any Registered Holstein farmer, but homebred cattle provide a sense of pride the Letters cherish. “I always like to buy a good one, but I prefer to have a majority of homebred ones,” said Russ. The Letters use matings along with their strict management protocols to maintain the herd quality. Russ has been in charge of the bull selection since he was 18, and the needs of the herd has always been a priority. He currently uses Doorman, McCutchen, Atwood, and Sid. He breeds for type, and wants a cow with a wide rump that walks uphill. Russ noted that it is getting hard to breed cows for a large frame and keep the herd 100% registered. They had to move away from strictly 100% bulls after the choices started affecting the herd. To help monitor herd quality, they classify every seven months as they feel classifying gives them another viewpoint of the cows. Like any dairy farmer, Russ wants to see high milk production for his cows. Even though he likes to see the cows produce big records, he does not choose strictly high milk bulls and would rather have a two-year-old give 80 or 90 pounds of milk than 100. Russ wants the young cows in the herd to grow before they really take off for milk production. Although Russ does not use milk bulls, often the herd still has a RHA of 27,000 pounds. The herd is built on a strong foundation of brood cows. The Letters have numerous brood cows that have made and continue to make, a lasting impact on the herd. Bob’s most influential brood cow was an EX-93 Counselor, R-R Letters CC Charm. Charm was the only cow Bob did not sell to Russ, and she has daughters still in the herd today. Russ mentioned several brood cows, but he was most proud of the cows he has bred himself, including R-R Letters Rubens Koreen EX-93. Koreen currently has two Very Good daughters and an excellent Durham daughter. Not only do the Letters breed and work to produce Excellent cows, they have a herd with longevity. They recently earned the award for the oldest cow in Outagamie County, an EX-90 Milan that just finished a lifetime record of 293,000 pounds at twelve and a half years old. Her dam is Kallanda Skychief Lony, an EX-93 Skychief with a 95-point mammary system. She is due to calve in December, and they


Kallanda Skychief Lony EX-93 are excited to continue milking her. The Letters’ breeding and management efforts have been rewarded with several awards throughout the years. They have earned numerous milk quality awards as well as several other local and national awards. The most valuable award to the Letters is the Progressive Breeder Registry from Holstein USA. They currently have received the PBR award for 18 years with the 19th on its way. The Letters feel that sales and advertising are vital to the operation. Registered cattle have always provided the farm with additional income when milk prices were low, but that would not be possible without advertisements in the Wisconsin Holstein News. They advertised for years using slogans created by Russ and Bob during milking. Additionally, they have sold cattle in several sales around the area over the years including the Outagamie County Holstein Sale. Russ and Bob believe that selling cattle on these sales is important to advertising their herd. Russ also sells several head each fall out of the barn. Russ learned the importance of selling cattle at the right time when he was 19 and lost his first Excellent cow. He had the chance to sell her for $10,000, but he turned it down and they lost her shortly after. Afterwards, Bob told Russ that this is a business, not a petting zoo. This prompted Russ to always price every cow in the barn. The Letter family has also seen success in the showring. However, this year they chose to only show at the county fair. They have previously showed at the Wisconsin Championship Show and the District 7 Show. They are very proud of their cattle, and display numerous photos in the house. Bob and Russ are most of all proud to have a small, successful family farm. Bob was able to showcase his pride when he was featured in a commercial for BelGioioso Cheese. In the commercial they spoke of their pride for what they do. The Letters have worked hard to produce a quality herd over the years, but Russ and Bob are going to disperse the herd next spring. After the sale they plan to continue cash cropping their land. Bob and Russ have an outstanding herd and hope that the herd will make an impact on other herds in the industry. Although they will not be working directly with the cows soon, they want to continually be a part of the industry.

The family purchased the current family farm in 1985, and they have always resided on the property. However, they sold the barn and dispersed the herd in 2003. Shortly after the dispersal of the herd, Rick started a trucking business, Vomastic Trucking, that is still in operation today. Julie does bookkeeping and payroll for other local businesses as well clerks the sales at Equity Cooperative. Julie is also currently the president of the Shawano County Holstein Association while Rick and son-in-law Steven are also on the board. Hauling cattle allowed Rick to see the operations of many other farms in the area which helped him realize that there were a lot of cows out there that could use some extra care to transition them to a new home, especially their show cows. In 2010 the family purchased the farm back and started milking 35 cows again. Today, they own 58 acres and rent an additional 110 acres to grow corn, soybeans, and hay. They sell all the soybeans, and use the corn and hay to feed to the cattle. The cattle are kept in a stanchion barn where they feed the cows grain in the barn, haylage and corn silage at a feed bunk, and free choice dry hay. The cows are also able to graze pasture grass. Currently the Vomastics have 12 Excellent, 11 Very Good and four Good Plus cows to earn them a BAA of 110.8. Their current goal is to breed and sell good cattle. To assist them in achieving this goal, they purchased Cookview Goldwyn Monique-ET EX-96-3E from the Bulterview sale this spring. Monique is due to calve in August to Atwood and they hope that she will become an important brood cow for their herd. They also plan to market the embryos from Monique, as well as from other cows in the herd. Marketing the embryos is new for the Vomastics, but it is all a part of their goal to breed and sell good cattle. Callis Crown Royal-Red-ET, daughter of L-Maples Hvezda Calli-Red EX-92, is another new cow for the Ri-Jul Registered Holstein herd. She is two years old and already has two Defiant heifer calves on the ground. Other brood cows include Music-Meadow Roxy EX-91, who has a promising Absolute yearling and an Atwood daughter with a good future. Roxy placed 7th at World Dairy Expo in 2014. Ri-Jul Advent Leann-Red, EX-93 2E, is another successful show cow for the Vomastics. She was first place at the District 7 show in 2015 and second place Aged Cow at District 7 this summer where she was also named the production winner. Leann was also the first place junior and 3rd open at the 2015 Midwest Spring Red & White Show. Leann has two promising yearlings by Armani on the farm. Several successful cows have called the Vomastic’s farm home, but Rick and Julie both feel that Miss Minor Acres Butter-Red EX-942E made the largest impact on the herd. When Butter was purchased by the Vomastics they thought she was sired by Red Devil, however they found out after flushing her that Butter was sired by Advent. Butter blessed the herd with several daughters from Shottle, Advent, Redburst, and Action. The family sadly lost Butter this past December, but her daughters are already carrying on the legacy. Butter was not only a vital part of the herd; she was also successful in the show ring. Julie simply said, “Butter was fun to show.” Butter had an extremely successful show career, but her shining moments were

Ri-Jul Registered Holsteins Rick & Julie Vomastic Family, Pulaski he Vomastic family farm, Ri-Jul Registered Holsteins, can be found just outside of Pulaski. The farm is currently run by Rick and Julie Vomastic. They also have three children who help with the farm as needed. Daughter Sara is an agronomist at United Cooperative and her husband Steven is the assistant manager at Equity Livestock Cooperative. Son Wesley manages Genetic Futures LLC in Junction City, Wis., and son Christopher (Petey) works in construction. Rick and Julie are also excited to get their new granddaughter, Adrianna Madison, involved on the farm. She was born July 29 and is the daughter of Sara and Steven.

winning second blue at the Wisconsin Junior State Fair, Supreme Champion at the Shawano County Fair in 2010 and then again in 2012, and being pulled out for Intermediate Champion at World Dairy Expo in 2010. Butter was also unanimous Junior All-American in 2010 and 2012. Butter and several other animals were shown by Rick, Julie, and their children. They still compete at the Shawano County Fair, District 7 show, Wisconsin Holstein Championship show, World Dairy Expo and they previously competed at the Wisconsin Junior State Fair. Julie feels that showing pushed the family to work harder. “Everyone has their years; next year will always be better because there is always something to work towards,” said Julie. The Vomastics focus on breeding and management of the cattle to help them improve their herd. They have had success with their Goldwyn, Advent, Gold Chip, Jasper, Atwood, and Absolute daughters, but more recently they are using Bradnick, Red Burst,

Contender, Sid, and Defiant. The Vomastics do breed for milk and components, but they prefer to focus on type. Cow comfort is an important part of managing the herd. Julie says, “Milk them, then let them out to eat and graze on pasture. During the winter months the cows are let out every day if possible. It may be old-fashioned, but it works.” They want to continue improving cow comfort by someday adding more box stalls. Julie also mentioned, “You have to take care of the calves to get good cows.” They currently keep the calves in hutches before moving them to super hutches and later the calves are moved into a heifer shed. The Vomastics are looking toward building a calf barn in the future. Family and farming is important to the Vomastic family, so naturally they plan to keep on farming until their children are ready to take it over. They plan to leave the farm to their children when they are ready, but want to always stay involved.

by Ashley Yager

Lea McCullough and Rock-N-Hill Knucklebuck EX-94 If you work in the Registered Holstein industry, either as a professional that works off the farm or a producer/breeder, chances are high that one cow played a special part in making the decision to have a career in agriculture. This month, WHA continues the #OneBlackandWhite campaign, focusing on that one black and white Holstein cow that had an impact on one young breeder’s life. Those that have ever met Lea McCullough know that her first love was none other than Rock-N-Hill Knucklebuck. A Skybuck daughter from an EX-91 Tab (Knucklehead) x EX-90 Festor (Knotty) x VG-85 Rockman (Knothead), Knucklebuck’s memorable name was given by Lea’s dad, Mike, and was always one that caught people’s attention. As a young girl, Lea always played with the hutch calves and led them all over the farm and in the barn. In the spring of 1997, she laid claim to Knucklebuck from a group of heifers Mike sorted for the kids to show. That spring Lea and her brother Pat each got a calf, and Lea, not knowing much at the time, picked the smaller calf (Knucklebuck). It took some grit to get her leading, but she eventually led like a champ and made her show ring debut at the Midwest Spring National Show, where she was second place winter calf and first junior. From that point on, if the McCulloughs took cattle to a show, Lea made sure that Knucklebuck was on the trailer. As a calf and yearling, Lea took her to spring show, Harvard Milk Days, Green County Dairy Days and the Green County Fair, state show, the Wisconsin State Fair, Boone County Fair, and World Dairy Expo (as a calf). Knucklebuck was Junior Champion or Reserve Junior Champion nine times as a heifer. Lea continued to show her in milking form as a two-yearold and three-year-old, and took her to shows several times as a dry cow. Good old Knucklebuck was often the go-to showmanship heifer and was the kind of animal that loved to show. Lea remembers miles of walking, leading and cold baths that didn’t bother Knucklebuck, in addition to the poking and prodding of clipping that never seemed to phase her. When Lea and her cow entered the ring, she knew it was show time. The combo went to over 65 shows in her career – so many that Lea still has every piece of Knucklebuck’s registration paper memorized, from her birth date to her registration number. Through her career, Knucklebuck gave Lea a lot of pride and joy, but there are unfortunately not many descendants left in the Rock-N-Hill herd. Her first calf was by One&Only Aero Arsenio - a March calf that Lea showed. She went VG-87 as a two-year-old, and she and Knuckelbuck were Reserve All-Wisconsin Dam and Offspring. The Arsenio had a Durham son that produced an EX-94 daughter for Lea’s brother, Chris. Knucklebuck had two full sisters, natural born calves named Knuckie and Knucklebun. Knuckie produced three daughters: a VG-87 Champion, an EX-90 Dundee and an EX-91 Stormin Norman. Knucklebuck herself had a Linjet son (KnuckleJet, VG-86) that was used as a jumper bull on heifers and produced one EX and two VG daughters. Knucklebuck’s lifetime production totals include 129,830 pounds of milk, with 4.3% 5636F and 3.1% 4078P. The McCullough family always said, “with a name like Knucklebuck...” As it seems to go with the best cows, Lea was close to losing Knucklebuck three times. She was on a first name basis at the local veterinarian office, having surgery three different times. Lea learned at a young age how tough it was to have a sick cow and almost lose her. She spent many days and nights in her pen watching over Knucklebuck, with many tears, too. The cow was tough, and Lea truly believes she wasn’t

ready to be done – that she had more plans in store for the duo. On October 31, 2005, the McCulloughs had to put Knucklebuck to rest. She calved a few weeks early with a bull calf, and was all set after the evening milking. The next morning she was down and never got up again. The McCullough family has only buried two cows on the farm, and Knucklebuck is one of them. The entire family was attached to the cow, who now rests out in the pasture next to the farm sign and one of Mike’s 5E favorites. The following spring show season was not the easiest for Lea, and it was a few years before the McCulloughs used Knucklebuck’s #4 barn number. Lea admits there were many life lessons learned during her run with Knucklebuck. “She taught me to never give up. She was sick, but she pulled through. She may have done well, but she also got beat a few times pretty good! I was disappointed, but she never did anything wrong. Knucklebuck was my ticket to some of the bigger shows, including state show and expo, which gave me the chance to meet a lot of people. Most importantly, she taught me that hard work at home paid off in the show ring. She was a little chunky, so we walked a lot of miles. She was black, so we spent a lot of time on baths trying to grow hair. Knucklebuck was always my sidekick at the shows, and we were always associated as a pair.” As much success as Knucklebuck has brought to Lea through the years, her involvement across the industry has helped shape her as a professional as well. Lea has worked as a dairy cattle photographer with Cybil Fisher Photography for nine years. As a youth, Lea was involved with Junior Holstein and 4-H, where she not only showed, but was active in dairy bowl, judging and other activities. Judging, especially, has helped Lea in her career when deciding animals’ strengths and faults, and getting them set in front of the camera accordingly. Lea’s travel through work led her to working with different show strings through the years, and eventually led her to meet her fiancé, Steven. After spending a year and a half in Ohio, the pair has moved back to Wisconsin and are planning a December 2016 wedding. Lea has also taken her niece Rachel to some shows, allowing her the chance to travel, meet new people and see great cows. Lea’s Wisconsin roots pulled her back home, and she now lives just 2.5 miles from her parents’ farm. She continues taking photos full-time but has a lot of time to spend at the farm, helping whenever she can. From filling in for milking during field work to unloading straw or hay, Lea and Steven enjoy getting to Rock-N-Hill whenever possible. The McCullough family doesn’t show as much these days, but Lea still does when she can – it’s her project that she just can’t give up. In fact, she still takes care of the breaking, washing, and going to shows. The entire family helps out with everyday feeding and care, and doesn’t mind if Lea ‘cherry picks’ a few head to mess with for the summer. Lea is excited to pass her knowledge and passion for the show ring on to her nieces and nephews, and admits the shows allow her more time with family. She hopes to teach them to do well and have fun, and so far the family has enjoyed a good time and success in the ring. “Registered Holsteins, and especially Knucklebuck, has continued to keep our family working closely together. I have a career I love and an incredible man in my life, and Knucklebuck helped to lay the path. She was my one black and white.” wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2016-45


2016 National Holstein Convention Saratoga Springs, New York Adult and Junior Holstein members from across the country met June 27-July 1 in Saratoga Springs, New York, for the annual Holstein convention. Wisconsin Juniors had another successful convention with the four Distinguished Junior Members being named DJM Finalists and four YDJMs recognized as National winners. The National Holstein Women’s Scholarship Organization (NHWSO) presented a total of $8,000 in scholarships to three deserving Junior Holstein members. Recipients included Charlie Hamilton and Elizabeth Endres. Representing Wisconsin in the Dairy Bowl competition was the Manitowoc County junior team and Dane County senior team. Dane County team member Lizi Endres placed first in the senior division the Dairy Knowledge Exam. Brianna Meyer placed first in the Junior Speaking Contest with her speech about Goldwyn. Several other juniors were recognized during the convention (see sidebar for full list). Corey Geiger was honored by the Holstein USA board as a retiring Directors. He was formally recognized during the awards banquet on July 1 for his contributions and leadership on the Association board of directors. Another highlight of the awards banquet was Joe Loehr of Mt. Calvary receiving the Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder award. More on Joe and this award can be found on page 48.

Holstein Association USA Recognizes Junior Members and their Exceptional Registered Holstein® Cows with Annual Awards

Holstein Association USA is proud to recognize several youth every year for their accomplishments in breeding and developing outstanding Registered Holstein cows. Two new awards have been created in 2016 to recognize even more Juniors and their cows. Additionally, all awards have been moved from an application process to automatic screen for all eligible animals. “Changes were made to the Junior Production & Breeder Awards in an effort to recognize more Holstein youth, for owning and breeding exceptional Registered Holsteins,” said Holstein Association USA Program Specialist Kelli Dunkliee. “The biggest change is that youth no longer have to submit entries, as they are now automatically calculated each year.” National Junior Star Performer Award The National Star Performer award is new this year, and recognizes youth who have homebred cows with exceptional milk production and classification scores. To be eligible for recognition, cows must be bred and owned by a Holstein Association USA Junior member, classified at least Very-Good 85, and have a 305-day (or less) production record of at least 25,000 pounds completed within the last calendar year. Once the eligible cows are determined, they have a score calculated based on their age-adjusted classification score and Mature Equivalent milk production, and they are ranked based on that value.

2016 Holstein USA Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder Award

F

aith. Family. Farming. These three words embody the drive behind this year’s Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder Award winner, Joe Loehr of Mount Calvary, Wis. As a father of five young children, he is dedicated to progressing his family’s farm, Loehr Dairy, LLC, while being actively involved in his community and developing a solid, sustainable foundation for his family. Joe’s journey began at a young age, and he credits his local county Holstein Association Herd Builder Program for sparking his interest in the Registered Holstein cow and the dairy industry. “Without this program, it would have taken me much longer to begin improving our herd,” Joe says. “Although my first investment didn’t reproduce very well, I was undeterred. Over the course of the next few years, I saved money from working on my parents’ farm and continued to purchase embryos or calves along the way.” Joe’s next investment was larger to gain a higher level of genetic potential. This philosophy paid off as it produced a daughter and granddaughter that appeared on the locator list and led to his first A.I. contract. Several descendants of this original purchase remain in the herd.

Developing Elite Genetics Through the years, Joe has continued to invest in animals, while at the same time working towards a partnership with his parents, Norman and Rosie, and two of his brothers, Mark and Dan. In 1996, that partnership came to fruition. Since that time, Loehr Dairy has grown from 100 to 400 milk cows and with the use of genomics, Joe continues to actively purchase animals to add genetic potential to their herd. The elite Registered Holstein herd carrying the prefix “Holyland” has been gaining interest. When discussing how investing in Registered Holsteins has financially benefited their herd, Joe cites the following. “Holsteins are the most rapidly improving breed genetically speaking, which has led to increased production and efficiency across our entire herd. Secondly, we have seen the additional dramatic reward achieved from marketing elite Registered Holstein genetics.” Most recently, they have sold the elite females Holyland Excite and Holyland Reach the Stars for substantial gains and sent four sires to two A.I. companies, one of which currently resides close to the top of the breed with an elite GTPI®. Joe looks forward to developing elite bloodlines to ensure his young family’s future, a family that includes his wife, Gina, their children, Sophia, 8, Isaac, 6, Lucia, 5, Gianna, 3, and Anthony, 1. “Along with being partners in our family dairy, my wife and I have chosen to invest much of our own personal resources into a small herd of Registered Holsteins as we see great potential for financial return,” Joe says. “As a father of five, I am always looking for creative ways to fund the future of our family and I am confident that our investment in Holstein cows will reward us greatly.” Joe and his family utilize the following Holstein Association USA programs to assist with developing their genetic herd: Holstein COMPLETE, EASY IDTM, Sire SummariesTM and TriStar. He also credits the use of genomic data in dairy cattle evaluation in developing their herd into a more uniform group of very well balanced cows that possess the traits needed to become more profitable Holstein cows. He has always been interested in the mating decisions on his family’s farm and became involved at a young age. In his teens, he worked with his father and brother to incorporate top TPI sires into their breeding program to further genetic progression. As he moved into ownership and grew his management authority, he began to more aggressively develop the herd. “For the past fifteen years, I’ve placed a strong emphasis on component percentages, which I saw as an area for improvement especially in our herd,” Joe says. “It was a goal to achieve an 875 pound protein rolling herd average and by consistent focus on protein among service sires, we achieved that and are working towards 1,000 pounds in the future.” 48–wisconsin HOLSTEIN news/September 2016

For this reason and others, Loehr Farm has received the Holstein Association USA Progressive Genetics Herd Award for the past three years. Maximizing Productive Efficiency Joe also sees the value of generating profits through production. Loehr Dairy currently runs an RHA of 26,613 pounds of milk with 1,057 pounds of fat and 879 pounds of protein on three time a day milking. He credits this level of production to the continuous improvements in the quality of forages raised on their 800 acres and fed to their herd. “I’ve always been astounded at the Holstein dairy cow’s ability to turn roughage into an invaluable nutritious product for people,” Joe says. “The efficiency of the process, the vast quantity of the product, and the life-sustaining nutritive value of the milk are remarkable.” To bring their animals the best quality forages, Joe and his family have increased the number of cuttings from three to five in a year and have incorporated grasses into their alfalfa. They have also been early adopters of shredlage, own their own processor for their forage harvester, use amino acid balancing to improve component percentage production and continually seek new ration ingredients that will help each cow maximize efficiency. The milk cows are fed two different, specifically balanced diets to deliver key nutrients that assist them in reaching their productive potential. They feed a high fiber one-group dry cow diet that Joe says has vastly improved their fresh cow health and performance. Cow comfort also plays a major role in the success of the Loehr herd. After becoming a partner and assuming the herd management role, Joe implemented a facility expansion to move their cows from a tie-stall barn to a sand-bedded free stall facility. Over the years, they have increased the size of the free stalls themselves and the lunge space, introduced a compost bedding pack for dry cows and post fresh cows and installed automatic brushes. These enhancements have had a dramatic impact on herd reproduction and milk quality. “We’ve seen our somatic cell count steadily decrease over the years to an average of 140 thanks to the above mentioned measures, an extensive, detailed milking routine and employee training on these milking protocols,” notes Joe. “Healthy, comfortable cows are the building blocks for our reproductive program. In addition to using several synchronization programs, we have used activity monitoring in our heifers for four years and successfully incorporated that technology into our milking herd in the past 18 months.” Community and Beyond While Joe is very thankful for all the opportunities that Registered Holsteins and family farming have brought him, his involvement with


church and community has been most rewarding. Namely, he met Gina at church and they were married two years later. They both take great pride in their family and their faith and this is evidenced by their deep commitment to the community. “Gina and I began volunteering for the marriage preparation program in our Archdiocese of Milwaukee giving talks to thousands of engaged couples about marriage and family life,” Joe says. “I am now serving on our Pastoral Council, the School Commission and am a Third Degree member of the Knights of Columbus.” Joe also coaches his son’s T-ball team and assists with his daughter’s 4-H club activities. As far as other dairy activities, Joe attended the Young Dairy Leaders Institute in 2001, is a member of the Fond du Lac County Agri-Business Council and served as a DHIA Delegate for four consecutive years. He has also opened their farm to inner-city school children from Milwaukee, agriculture research students from

the University of Wisconsin-Madison and agricultural interns from around the world. While Joe has limited his time away from home due to his young family, he looks forward to expanding that involvement in the future. “My strong faith, a loving family and the opportunity to work into the family business are things that less and less people have today,” he concludes. “Service particularly in the dairy industry, is important to me because exposure and opportunity are significant to young people pertaining to agriculture and dairying. With less people growing up on farms and in this industry, it becomes essential that we connect with others in the community.” reprinted with permission from the Summer 2016 issue of Holstein Pulse
