Holstein Association USA Recognizes Top BAA Herds


Holstein Association USA has released the lists of the top Holstein Breed Age Average (BAA%) herds for 2017 classifications. The BAA value provides a way to compare the score of a herd average to the average of the breed, taking into account age of the animal and stage of lactation. Herds participating in the Classic or Standard options of the Holstein Classification program receive an overall BAA for the herd.

Several lists have been created to recognize members of all herd sizes and all areas of the country. Find the 2017 Overall Top 200 BAA Herds, Top 25 BAA Herds by Region, Top 25 BAA Herds by Herd Size, and Top 10 BAA Herds for Colleges & Universities on www.holsteinusa.com . To appear on these lists, a herd must have at least 10 cows included in the BAA calculation. If a herd classified more than once during the year, only the most recent BAA was considered for inclusion. All eligible herds are automatically evaluated. 

The average BAA for all herds in 2017 was 106.5. Six herds had a BAA of over 114.0, and Matthew T. Mitchell of Tenn. earns the recognition of having the highest BAA in the U.S. last year at 116.5 on 10 cows. Rounding out the top five include Milk Source LLC, Wis.; Eaton Holsteins, N.Y.; Michael J. Garrow, N.Y.; Michael & Julie Duckett, Wis.; and Timothy M. & Sharyn W. Abbott, Vt.
