30th Annual Wisconsin Holstein Futurity

Seventeen bovine beauties graced the shavings at the Wisconsin State Fair Park on Saturday, August 13th to compete for the title of first place in the 30th Annual Wisconsin Holstein Futurity. Judging this prestigious event was Brian Behnke of Brooklyn, Wisconsin.  In this nontraditional show, the animals are entered three years prior to the show and only the best of the entries compete for the coveted title.

This year the coveted title was captured by Ernest-Anthony Sid Amelia, owned by Crescentmead Holsteins and shown by Sarah Wendorf of Ixonia Wisconsin. The Wendorf family received $1500 from our generous sponsor, Badgerland Financial. Amelia was also named best udder of the show and the top fat and protein production winner.

Following closely in second was Ryan-Vu Regin Raz A Taz, owned by Chad and Mark Ryan, Majestic View, and Crailoo Dairy Farm, and shown by Amy Ryan of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Raz A Taz won a $750 check from International Protein Sires. She was also named the first place bred and owned animal.

In third place was Rob-Cri Dempsey Secret, Exhibited by Gracelyn Jo Breitenstein of Plover, Wisconsin. Agropur presented Gracelyn and Secret with a check for $500. Gracelyn was also presented with the first place junior award, sponsored by Angela Davis-Brown of Ma-Brown Holsteins and Jerseys and $50 from the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association.
Even though the bovine beauties are truly looking their best, the exhibitors are dressed to impress. These exhibitors gave up their jeans and boots for a night of ball gowns and tuxedos to compete for the best dressed awards. All the exhibitors were looking their best and truly impressed the crowd. The Best Dressed Junior award and $100, sponsored by Frisle-Vu Holsteins went to Nicole Wright from Watertown, Wisconsin. Levi Kindshi of Loganville, Wisconsin received the Best Dressed Male award and $100 from Indianhead Holsteins. The Best Dressed Female of the night went to Courtney Ewert of Hustisford, Wisconsin along with $100 sponsored by Scenic-Edge Holsteins.

The distinguished guests included Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess Kati Kindschuh; Wisconsin Holstein Association Princess Attendant Paige Nelson; Alice in Dairyland Ann O’Leary; Wisconsin Fairest of the Fairs Gloria Kesler; National Red and White Queen Mckenna Coffeen; and Green County and Dane County Royalty.

The Wisconsin Holstein Association Futurity is a very unique show with a unique mission.  The Wisconsin Holstein Association uses the futurity to help promote the dairy industry to the general public and display the first class care we provide our animals and dedication that we have for our animals and the products they produce. The Wisconsin Holstein Association Futurity was started to inform consumers about the dairy industry and Registered Holsteins.

The 30th Wisconsin Holstein Association futurity would not be possible without our generous sponsors. The Wisconsin Holstein Association would like to thank the major futurity sponsors, Badgerland Financial, International Protein Sires, Agropur, and Brian Greenman, Rural Mutual Insurance Agent, for helping to make this show a success. In addition to our very generous sponsors, we would also like to thank our committee members for all that they do when it comes to setting up and taking down the arena. We could not have such a successful event without your generous help.
