State Holstein Association Holding Barn Meetings
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/06/2015
The Wisconsin Holstein Association has scheduled its annual spring Barn Meetings during the month of March. Organizers say the focus of this year's forums will be classification, and host farms will open their facilities for tours and be on hand to answer questions.
Cy Letter, a classifier with Holstein Association USA, will talk about how cows arrive at their final score. He has been involved in classifying some of the stars of the breed but readily acknowledges the most important part of the program is getting all cows scored and linearized correctly so breeders can use the
Sire Summary with confidence when mating cows.
The meetings will be held at the following farms beginning at 11:00 a.m.:
** March 17: Mayerlane Holsteins of Bloomer
** March 18: Joe Paltzer Farm of Seymour
** March 19: Fischerdale Holsteins of Verona
Barn meetings are open to any interested Holstein breeder. For more information, call the Wisconsin Holstein Association at 800-223-4269.
