When Milk Goes Off, Is It Bad Taste? or Bad Marketing? Or Bad Taste in Marketing?

We all prefer to be seen in the best light but, in the case of milk, the very lighting that attracts us to the dairy aisle could be causing problems. At least that’s what the headlines are saying.

The LIGHT that Shines on Milk Could Be Spoiling It!

Bottles, boxes, cartons and bags. There are growing varieties of ways to bring your milk home from the grocery store.  As dairy producers, we would like to think that after milk leaves the farm, it will arrive at the table in the same healthy condition that it left in.  On the contrary, some recent news reports are suggesting that packaging methods may not have a positive effect.  Are we to understand that some packaging causes milk to go bad? Wrong! Well then, is the problem all about light getting to the milk through the packaging? Wrong again! In actual fact, when it comes to milk going off, the contributing factor is the light itself. E

The Latest Bad Milk Buzz Concerns LED Bulbs.

You know of course that LED bulbs are the ones that we all thought were a good thing to support and switch to. Now headlines are suggesting that LED lights ruin milk by making it deteriorate faster. “LED-Exposure causes milk to degrade more quickly.”   (newfoodmagazine.com   June 10, 2016).

Are the Headlines True? Do LED Lights Make Milk Go Bad?

To shed more light on this topic, we have to seek out a new study from Cornell (news.cornell.edu) entitled “Consumers sour on milk exposed to LED light” which states:

 “Cornell researchers in the Department of Food Science found exposure to light-emitting diode (LED) sources for even a few hours degrades the perceived quality of milk more so than the microbial content that naturally accumulates over time. Their study determined milk remained at high-quality for two weeks when shielded from LED exposure, and consumers overwhelmingly preferred the older, shielded milk over fresh milk stored in a typical container that had been exposed to LED light for as little as four hours.”

Attention: Please re-read the previous paragraph and take special note of the words ‘perceived’ and ‘preferred.’

The Cornell Study Confirms Things We Need to Remember

“Exposure of fluid milk to LED light negatively affects consumer perception and alters underlying sensory properties.” Furthermore, it confirms that we have recognized for decades that light affects the flavor of milk.

 “Light-induced flavors in dairy products are in no way an unexpected or novel observation (Browne, 1899). This study differed from earlier work in the use of more modern LED light illumination and the incorporation of a large consumer study with descriptive sensory measures. Light-activated flavors have been shown to produce robust negative consumer response (White and Bulthaus, 1982)…. Producing milk in packaging protected from sunlight has been discussed for almost 100 years.”

We Are Being Told That It’s the Color of the Light That Matters.

“Although the wavelength of LED lights is of lower total power than fluorescent lighting, they emit strongly in the blue spectrum (Heffernan et al., 2007; Narukawa et al., 2010). This isn’t far from the 450nm absorption maximum of riboflavin.  Riboflavin has been found to be the most destructive (by Choe et al. 2005). Thus it may be more effective in degrading riboflavin and releasing energy to the milk.”

Two Things Speed up the LED Reaction: 1. The Color 2. The Brightness

So what?  Well, the data is showing that even a relatively short exposure to LED light (4 hours) will readily induce light-oxidized flavor, thus reducing consumer liking (Hoskin and Dimick 1979.

So next time that “Why Does the Milk Taste Bad?”  conversation comes up, here are four tasteful points that will prove especially enlightening.

“Bad taste.  Bad milk.  That’s NOT the truth. “

  1. The milk is not going bad.

“The whole problem starts with trying to be too bright.”

  1. Light is having an effect on consumer perceptions and taste buds.

“Blue Light May Be COOL Cool, but it is NOT the RIGHT light.”

  1. The real culprit is blue light which is causing the deterioration. LEDs can be mixed to any color temperature, so those making the selection need to turn to “warm white” instead of “cool blue.”

“When good Milk leaves a bad taste, put the BLAME where it belongs.”

  1. Marketing studies proclaim that lighting done right will increase retail sales. Now managers need to combine this art of attraction with results that also prove that milk may need special consideration to prevent the taste going off.

“It’s All in the Eye of the Beholder”

If retail stores remember that the customer is always right, they will accept the “perceived” reality that taste is being affected by the lights and make sure that they don’t try to make milk sales by providing too much bright blue light. If they ignore this, public perception will turn to the reality of deteriorating milk.  I tend to agree with the viewpoint that sums up the situation this way, “This research points the way to home milk delivery, in brown or blue glass bottles, as is used for other beverages whose flavor we care about.”

The Bullvine Bottom Line

At the end of the day – or when you’re in the grocery line — it seems that milk producers and consumers are destined to keep getting caught between LEDs and a dark place. Is it too bright?  Or too blue?  Milk’s journey from stable to table has many twists and turns.  The one thing that we want is for it to arrive healthy, fresh and delicious. We can all drink to that!!

DAIRY TECHNOLOGY: Is There Too Little or Too Much?

More and more often these days you will spot a little bracelet on the arms of friends, neighbors, and strangers.  The health trend for monitoring daily footsteps is catching on. Since I now sport one of these, I have the advantage of having actual proof that I am not moving around enough.  Ironically, before I ever was gifted with this performance monitor, I was fascinated at more than one dairy trade show to see the growing number of activity monitoring systems which have been developed for use on dairy farms. In fact, activity monitors are just the tip of the dairy tech iceberg.0914ca_drankhan_smartphone1

When you’re in the barn, how much technology should you use?

There is always the need to improve reproduction, reduce labor and lower costs. Is technology this generation’s miracle worker?  We are told, it can make managers faster, smarter and more profitable.  The promise is that technology brings myriad benefits to dairy progress but where is the line between too little and too much.  Growing demand means that an ever-increasing number of companies see the potential in developing and marketing these systems.

The Million Dollar Question

“When does a greater technology presence provide the most benefits.”

The 21st Century Answer

Our dairies aren’t using too much technology.

They’re not using enough!

If we intend to be relevant for future generations of consumers and farmers, we have to prepare ourselves for the world that is going to exist.  To put it simply.  It’s all about evolution. As you read this, children are growing up with technology.  We are moving into a futuristic dairy world. Fewer and fewer producers are having to produce more and more products.  This agricultural shift alone means that we need to understand and use technology. Admittedly ongoing economic situations in Europe and fluctuating or declining markets in other countries have some feeling reluctance to invest in the future.  But if there is to be a viable future for dairying, investing is exactly what must happen.

How Do These Systems Transform Dairy Processes?

When you work in an industry with as much passion and persistence as the dairy industry has, you don’t have to go far to hear find partnerships of – breeders- science- and business people who are creating new products that are revolutionizing day to day performance.

“No one is talking about what their product might do, they’re talking about what it does.”

Like a well-oiled team, technology developers send out their most charismatic people with videos, brochures, and hands-on displays.  If you are exposed to one of these presentations, it’s hard not to feel that you have had a peek into the future.  But there is no cause for trepidation.  Even though the technology is leading edge, the best presenters keep the explanations (and implementation) grass roots simple. They know that information is key to being successful and profitable in the modern dairy business.  They say, “The better you align your goals with your profitability, the clearer your technology needs will become.  Whether it’s labor, nutrition, production or genetics, technology can assist the potential in each area.”

Do Monitors Eliminate Interaction with The Cows?

The goal is not to eliminate the need for interaction with the dairy herd. It is to make it easier to focus effectively on priorities.

“Now your cows can talk to you!”

And it isn’t just the dairy manager that gains an advantage. There are applications for consultants and nutritionists too.  Modern technology is putting tech in the hands of every person who is on the dairy team.

“Like all tools, the technology works best when it is properly implemented.”

Tech is ready to change the way we think about making thousands of daily management decisions.  The great thing with most of the new products is that the learning curve for anyone interested is almost instant and is well supported by the developers.  We have all wanted to take advantage of new technology and had to work through the slow process of learning, re-learning and fixing the accompanying software.  Dairy technology companies that will have an impact and thrive in today’s market know that solving learning hurdles is key to everyone’s success.

Know What to Ask Before Making the Decision to Purchase a Technology Monitoring System

  • Is training or support is provided with the system?
  • What warranty period is there on the system and its components?
  • How large an area is covered? Can the system read activity tags in all parts of the barn or pasture?
  • How large of an area will the tag reader or antenna cover?
  • How long will it take to pay back the cost of the system?
  • What is the warranty period on the system and/or its components?
  • Is there another farm in the area using the system that I could visit?
  • Is the activity system compatible with my current herd management software?
  • What other technology will I need (i.e. Internet connection) for this system to work?
  • When you talk to users of the technology, be sure to ask them what problems they had and how they overcame them.

You are now prepared for the fun of taking a day (or more) away from the farm to bring yourself up-to-date on the latest innovations in livestock production. Here are some that catch the interest of The Bullvine.

0914ca_drankhan_medriha1vetMEDRIA SENSOR – Cow Monitoring System is Dedicated to Reliable Real-Time Data

The Medria system provides information on heat detection, rumination, feeding behavior, health monitoring and calving time monitoring.  It uses cellular communication instead of the internet, and it is an integrated system- HeatPhone, FeedPhone, VetPhone, SanPhone.  They system sends text messages about group changes in water or feed consumption and rumination. It reports cows at risk due to changes in behavior, as well as cows in heat, etc.  When I first learned about this system in 2015, there was tremendous interest around the World Dairy Expo booth. At that time Medria Technologies founders Jean-Pierre Lemonnier and Emmaneul Mounier (2004 in Brittanny France) pointed out, “Medria Technologies has a full line totally oriented to farm management.” and they reported that over 4000 farmers in more than 10 European countries were already using Medria’s monitoring solutions. Those first eleven years were providing positive results, proving “how need this device is and how successful it can be in the monitoring and early detection of reproduction and animal health problems.”

Now WIC has Been Added to the GEA MixFeeder

DairyFarming_FreeStallFeeder_1_1200x675px.jpgIn July of 2016, GEA introduced the Wireless Integrated Control (WIC) system which is an intelligent software for its proven MixFeeder.  The new system ensures that every performance group receives the optimal mix ration of raw feed, concentrated feed and minerals in the right volumes at the most appropriate intervals. The WIC delivers the feed precisely and reliably around the clock.  This benefits milk producers and herd managers as it ensures that their cows are always performing at their full potential, thereby improving milk volumes and quality and reducing workload and costs.

The WiIC software enables staff to access the system from the PC, touch panel or their smartphone, wherever they happen to be, via the local network or the internet.  This gives producers and herd managers greater freedom, while still enabling them to have full control over the entire feeding process. The system can also send alerts via SMS if required.  These messages can then be acknowledged with a simple reply text.  Staff can also manage individual functions and get basic information on the touchscreen on the feeder itself.

There are numerous great products on the market and many more that will be introduced and demonstrated at upcoming shows.  EuroTier is held every two years in Hanover, Germany and from November 15 to 18 this year, there will be exhibitors highlighting products to support breeding, feeding, husbandry, management, logistics and animal health.  Once again, the future beckons!

rover-robots-alimentation-produits-rovibec1Introducing the Robot Named, “ROVER!”

Rover is a new self-propelled robot whose debut appearance will be at EuroTier.  Rover will show how it can not only automatically mix and feed and dispense it to the cows but also push up that feed as it passes. This new robotic feeding system was developed by Rovibec in Quebec, Canada and will be distributed in parts of Europe by Schauer Agrotronic in Austria.

The Bullvine Bottom Line

Modern technology developers are just like every one of us who has a piece of dairy in their DNA.  They are eagerly taking a bold and imaginative place in the product line between the stable and the table. Whether you walk the aisles of World Dairy Expo in Madison or the Euro-Tier Show in Hanover Germany, you will be inspired by visionary companies with the courage to lead.  Technology is an area of dairying that is moving at the speed of change and helping dairy operators to take a progressive, sustainable and profitable step into the future. Where are you? Too much?  Or Not enough?

Fire Yourself!! 8 Signs That Your Time Has Come!

We talk about the way family farm founders, dairy managers, consultants and suppliers need to be passionate, committed and courageous in leading their dairy businesses. We enjoy giving glowing praise to those who have inspired us to take exceptional action or to dig deeper to solve a problem or gave us the guts to make uncomfortable changes. We include ourselves in that group of aging role models. But what happens when there is an ever-widening gap developing between the measurable achievements? Indeed, what happens when those who lead the pack are not ready or willing to hand over the baton.

These Days Are We Still Proud or Are We Just Loud?

When we start something, and grow it into a successful enterprise, we are justifiably proud of the distance we have come.  We know how much hard work, inspiration and vision went into getting the operation off the ground. We are proud of growing and maintaining the legacy of those before us.  But sometimes we get so hung up on simply hanging on that we are a detriment to continued growth. Loud whining is very different from proud leading.

Sometimes Taking the Most Important Step Means Stepping Away

There are definitely times when you look back and congratulate yourself on taking center stage.  Tough or easy, you had the target painted on your back, and you accepted responsibility.  Being in the driver’s seat of a dairy business means traveling down a long and winding road. We sometimes need to be reminded that, on any journey, it’s important to pay attention to the stop signs! Here’re eight stop signs that you may be missing or ignoring.

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441 #1: “No one could do what I do as well as I do it!”

If you just shouted “Right on!”, then please step away from your computer! It’s wonderful to have a great track record but what does the record show recently, when it comes to moving ahead with new technology, new management methods, new breeding strategies and a new nutrition program?  The belief that the status quo is the way to go just means that YOU need to go. And furthermore-  If you use the phrase: “By the time I show someone how to do it, I could just do it myself” Step aside. If your team really can’t do the work as well as you can, whose fault is that? Did you fail to train them? Or train them to fail?  Fire yourself!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#2: You resent young upstarts who haven’t struggled like you did and yet seem to feel that they are entitled to be your equal.

This is a big one.  If you hold resentment toward people (family, staff, partners or consultants) who haven’t been through what you have and who, heaven forbid, rely on book learning instead of years of experience, this could be a sign that you have passed your own best-before date. The measure of success isn’t the path taken or the length and bumpiness of the road.  Success is measured in results.  Are you interested in results or longevity?  Progress or control?  What are you afraid of.  If you answer is “I am afraid of retirement!”  Fire yourself!

PS If the only ones you resent are “those girls” or “the women” who aspire to work in your exclusively male domain.  Fire yourself!  Do it now!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#3: You’re worried about the financial Implications.

Are you waiting for the economy to improve, before you’ll give up control? You have come through challenges. Have a little faith that others can do the same. You may not be ready to let others make financial decisions, but are your decisions making or breaking the bank?  Do you find yourself cutting corners to save money, doing the best you can on your own in order to avoid paying someone else for services? Are you cutting costs on feed or supplies even though it may affect your herd health and production and therefore reduce your actual profits? Cutbacks can be costly.  At the other extreme, when seeing ourselves in the role of “top” boss, we give ourselves permission to break some rules by giving bigger discounts for our products or services to our “special” customers?  Do you find your customers or suppliers always asking for a deal? Are you demonstrating your power or are you eating away at your margins?  You need to recognize that your control may be inefficient, wasteful, and inducing costs that work against the very profitability you are hoping for. If you don’t fire yourself at this point, you will eventually be out of work.  Fire yourself!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#4: You think long hours are a measure of success.

Dairying is 24/7, but burnout is not a benchmark for success. Past a certain point, working more hours rarely makes you more productive. A study showed that, if you’re regularly working past 50 hours a week, your productivity is likely going to drop. That same study from Stanford also reported that people who work as much as 70 hours (or more) per week actually get the same amount done as people who work 55 hours. “But” you object, “they’re probably not farmers!”  You’re right.  That is why pacing yourself and delegating and strategically planning workloads is something that successful dairy farmers become very good at. There is no point in becoming an ornery, grumpy curmudgeon just because your martyr complex won’t let anyone else share the load. If you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders – fire yourself.

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#5: You expect praise for your efforts but don’t hand much of it out.

Do you insist on doing your job and other people’s jobs too? We all have strengths and when you have capable family or staff, let them lead with theirs. Strong leaders recognize where others add value, and make space for true collaboration. Don’t try to do it all. Especially when someone else might do it better. Do you find yourself detouring around family or staff in any meeting with suppliers, customers, or strategic partners?  If you are the only star, what does that make your staff.  Do you feel frustrated with staff who are not proactive, who only do what they’re told, who depend on you for decisions and seem unable to think strategically? Do customers always ask to speak to you instead of your staff? If you’re the reason, fire yourself!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#6: Everything has to go through you.

If your team can’t make a decision, or work is held up because you’ve not yet reviewed or approved it, it’s time to question how enabling you really are. You may not even be conscious of the tone you set, but sometimes a team’s hesitancy to make a call stems from your bad habit of reversing decisions. It’s either that or they’re unclear about what you want. Do people know what you expect? It’s great to be a champion, a guide, and even a director when needed. But don’t be a bottleneck. Learn to be clear on your expectations. Learn to take a backseat in decision making.  If you’re hired as “Manager,” you may not be prepared to or able to fire yourself. But you should always have the best interests of the dairy business at heart. Learn to appreciate the new technology and ideas that the younger generation may bring. If you own the operation, learn to change your title from “Farm Manager” to “Farm Owner.”     For those of you who are at this stage, Congratulations!!  You’ve built your dairy business.  Now it’s time to enjoy seeing it evolve further.  I hope you can let go quickly enough to take advantage of it. Fire yourself!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#7: You don’t trust your team to represent your work.

Clarifying roles and responsibilities is helpful. Once you’ve done this, it’s important to stay in your lane. If a project is heading into a ditch, by all means, step in. Otherwise, clarify your goals and expectations, then trust people to get the job done. Don’t insert yourself just because you can, or because you feel the need to appear in control. Leading from the sidelines has its place. If we want to enable meaningful contributions from everyone and maximize the talent available, it’s important that you either find your correct place…and learn to occupy it gracefully … or fire yourself!

129495-simple-red-square-icon-signs-road-stop-sign-sc441

#8: You are not ready or willing to change roles.

When you first started out in farming, you handled everything: chores, milking, breeding; finances; planting and harvesting; buying and selling; builder; plumber and all round handyman.

Over time and with the changing nature of modern dairying, you were probably required to focus on other things, and you coped with that.  Now changes include team building, training, and management, to name a few things that need to be on the priority list. When we as owners or managers refuse to relinquish control, we negatively affect growth. Call it fear or call it pride; that hesitation causes harm.  We have now become stumbling blocks.  Don’t get me wrong!  Many of us have used our strengths and still have some to offer. But if we are not very good at running today’s operations under changed circumstances we have to admit it. Change happens whether we are ready or not.  For many of you, your operation still needs you… For some of you, your business can do without you.  Either accept your new role or fire yourself!

8 STOP SIGNS PLUS ONE!!

So, there you have it.  If you read through this list of stops signs and recognized yourself —- check, check, check, check, check —then it’s time for you to check out. Fire yourself!! 

THE BULLVINE BOTTOM LINE

Don’t make your biggest regret that you waited too long to fire yourself. If you have the best interest of your dairy operation at heart, then you will be wise enough to know when the time has come to be the “wind beneath the wings” of the next generation.  Are you ready to give your dairy an advantage?

LOCOMOTION – Are we solving the PUZZLE?

For years, we have listened to breeders, show judges and trained experts talk about the way our cows move. Each authority focusses on a different outcome: winning in the show ring; producing in the milking line or remaining healthy in the barn or pasture. To name a few. We have many pieces from a lot of sources, but we still are unable to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together to improve bovine locomotion. Are we so focused on our own piece, or even lack an interest in locomotion, that we are failing to see the big picture?

By Nature

If man had not domesticated bovines, they would still most likely have a mature size of 660-880 pounds (300 – 400 kgs) and would have been able to leap over rocks, and bushes like our deer in the wild can do. But I am thinking it is more than the larger size that has slowed down today’s bovines. Some breeds, especially, are less mobile that would be ideal.

Mankind – A Help or a Hindrances?

Perhaps there is not one answer that applies to all breeds of dairy cattle. Some have straighter and some more sickled legs. Foot structure, bone quality, and strength of pasterns vary from breed to breed.

Over a pan of more than three centuries breeders have changed the cow from only being able to feed her calf with perhaps a little extra milk for the owner’s household to being able to produce large volumes of nutritious milk that can feed many families. But at what price? Shorter lifespans? Perhaps! And now we have animals with much less ability to move, run and jump freely.

Many Experts have Opinions

Show judges a few times, at every show, will comment on how one cow moves compared to another. Their comments are usually about gait and strength of pasterns.

Classifiers have, for over ninety years, looked at feet and legs and evaluated them compared to the breed ideal. Most frequently, in the past, they would only see the cow standing in a stall. How can they know how a cow will move from only looking at form and not looking at and recording an evaluation on function? With so many parts to feet and legs evaluation and by not recording movement, it is little wonder that the heritability for feet and legs, using type classification data, is less that 10%. Knowledgeable breeders have told me that they feel the heritability of feet and legs is like udders at 30%.

Hoof trimmers mainly see only the bad feet of a herd, but they do not record that feet form information or do animal movement coding for genetic evaluation purposes. Of course, to get the full range of feet in a herd, they would also need to evaluate the good feet that they do not trim. For trimmers to go one step further and record data on locomotion may not be totally objective as the feet, just trimmed, are not likely to immediately function properly. One promising note is that Canadian hoof trimmers and CDN are currently working together on capturing data on cow’s feet as they are trimmed. By default, they will be able to identify sires and cow families that have feet problems.

Researchers, both veterinarians, and geneticists are interested in locomotion, and there have been studies, reports and videos to rate cows from excellent to poor for locomotion. But, beyond showing animal differences, little is known for breeders to use to improve the ability of their cattle, when it comes to locomotion.

It’s a Big Puzzle

Legs are large appendages that are attached mainly by muscles, ligaments, and cartilage. And while we know a considerable amount about the genetic improvement of skeletal structure, we know relatively little when it comes to the genetics of the function of feet and leg parts.    

Type classification programs observe, capture and analyze large volumes of data on leg and foot form. But not on leg function. With more and more animals housed in a non-tied format, there must be a way to also capture data on leg and foot function.

Judges appear to be paying more attention, than in the past, to dairy animal leg movement in the show ring.  Definitely, in the beef animal show rings animals are expected to be able to walk smoothly at a fast gait. However, for either dairy or beef, so few animals ever see the show ring, and those animals that make it there will have had their feet trimmed and be trained to walk unnaturally slow …. the result being that breeders cannot depend on the show ring for the evaluation of locomotion.

It is very costly to video a large number of animals moving in barns or on pastures and after that ’translate’ the results into actual sire rankings for locomotion. Perhaps someone will develop a means by which stationary or drone cameras can capture accurate mobility data. Now, that is a challenge for a scientist to develop an evaluation method. For another scientist, the challenge is to link the mobility index to the DNA and produce genomic mobility indexes.

Certainly, it is a big puzzle at this time. However, big challenges require big picture thinking.

Why Bother to Solve the Puzzle?

There are many things that “don’t” happen when locomotion is poor. In short cows that can’t or don’t walk properly don’t spend as much time foraging or at the feed bunk. They don’t come into heat or don’t mount to show heats. If they don’t move forward (i.e. have good locomotion), your dairy operation is probably slowing down or standing still too!

Recently Dr. Jeff Bewley and Associates at the University of Kentucky have documented that cows with poor mobility do not consume as much feed and lay for longer time periods. Less dry matter intake results in less production and long laying times, also exposing teat ends to more bacteria.

With over 10M dairy cows in the US and Canada and with an estimated 40% with minor to severe mobility problems even a $250 reduction in annual net income for those affected cows equates to annual losses of $1B. Additionally adding even half a lactation to every cow’s lifetime, that is going from 2.7 to 3.2 lactations, is worth billions.

Now, it is not possible to estimate what it would cost the dairy cattle industry if people outside of our industry were to stop buying our end products because the milk or milk products they consume could possibly come from lame cows.

The Bullvine Bottom Line

The challenge to improve the genetic merit of dairy animal mobility cannot be ignored. It is a necessity! Resources have been allocated to less important issues. The global dairy cattle improvement industry needs to stop saying that the challenge is too big, too costly, that there is no data or there are too many unknowns. Poor animal locomotion is a puzzle that must be solved!

The 2016 Royal Winter Fair Holstein Show – The show everyone will remember for all the wrong reasons

By all accounts, the 2016 Holstein Show at The Royal should have been a celebration of the many great moments that occurred.  Instead, it will be remembered for one incident that many wish they could forget. (Complete 2016 Canadian National Holstein Show Results)

The Good

JACOBS GOLD LIANN GrandChampion 2016 Canadian National Holstein Show Westcoast Holsteins

Certainly, headlining the good is JACOBS GOLD LIANN.  It’s not very often that the Grand Champion of either Expo or the Royal is a Junior Three-Year-Old.   LIANN was not at Expo this year as Yan Jacobs was the associate judge, but she certainly was the consensus pick as the best cow, not at World Dairy Expo (Read more: World Dairy Expo 2016 Holstein Show Preview).  And now she has proven that to be exactly the case.  LIANN looked so impressive all week at Toronto that she commanded the attention of most everyone in the barns. This was especially the case for Westcoast Holsteins, who ended up acquiring her for what must be the most money paid for a show cow in some years.  As expected, she did not disappoint.  LIANN not only won her class and Intermediate Champion but she was also Grand Champion.  That is saying a lot considering the judge Marc Comtois is also the breeder and now owner of the Expo Junior Three-Year-Old class winner, COMESTAR LAMADONA DOORMAN, and may have watched his chances of getting the All-American nod slip away as LIANN was also shown and won at The Big E this year and is eligible for All-American status.

Not often that a cow that is a class winner is able to breed a daughter that is also a class winner at the same national show.  It certainly has only happened twice at a Holstein show at either Expo or the Royal in the same year.  Apple did it with her clone and her daughter in 2014 (Read more: KHW Regiment Apple-Red – Beauty, performance, and even more record accomplishments) and Dupasquier Starbuck Winnie and her daughter Dupasquier Black Winnie won Grand and Junior Champion at the 1991 Royal Winter Fair, it has not happened in a Holstein Show since.  That is until this year when BOSDALE GOLD LUSTER won the Four-Year-Old Class and her daughter QUALITY SOLOMON LUST was the 1st place Intermediate Calf.  It is interesting to note that these two magnificent animals are both part-owned by Dupasquier Holsteins.

In what was an emotional moment during the show for all involved the very talented Blair Weeks from Weeksdale Holsteins, in P.E.I won the Andrea Crowe Memorial Award.  The award was started by the friends and family of Andrea to celebrate and honor Andrea and her legacy as a passionate Holstein breeder and exhibitor and community minded individual.  This year was extra special as Blair and Andrea where close friends and owned several animals together.  A very fitting winner for a great award.

To celebrate and honour the life of the late Donald Dubois, a new annual award was established and was presented at the Royal Winter Fair in his memory.  The award was presented to the top showperson at the show.  The winner was the extremely talented showperson Marianne Jansen, Embrun, ON.  Also very fitting as Marianne and Donald did battle in the show ring many times they where also very close friends. Also fitting as the fact the Rolly Dubois, Donalds older brother was the winner of the 2016 Curtis Clark Achievement Award.

In what has proven to be one of the most exciting contest for dairy breeders around the world, Sylvain Cormier from Montreal Quebec is the 2016 Royal Winter Fairy Fantasy Exhibitor Champion.  Sylvain had a team of BELFONTAINE DOORMAN DYLAN, SICY DOORMAN BRIE, JACOBS MASCALESE BALZE, MILKSOURCE SID DESIRE, DESNETTE ADELICIA IMPRESSION, TREFLE CHASSEP DOORMAN, MUSTHAVEN GOLDWYN JAELYN P, JACOBS GOLD LIANN, JACOBS JORDAN CARMEL, JACOBS FEVER CAEL, BRACKLEYFARM CHELIOS CHEERIO & LOYALYN GOLDWYN JUNE.  Earning him a total of 304 points (214 plus 90 time bonus points) on a total budget of $1,689,000.

The Bad

For those complain that World Dairy Expo placings will dictate the placings at The Royal, you need not look further than this year’s Royal Winter Fair Junior Champion, MS LISTERINES LUCKYLADY.  LUCKYLADY had been 6th at World Dairy Expo but fit the style Judge Marc Comtois was looking for.  The Expo Junior Champion, Duhibou Fever Piranha, finished 4th in her class at the Royal for new owners Westcoast Holsteins (Read more: 2016 Sale of Stars) and COBEQUID WINDBROOK PIROUETTE, who was the Reserve Junior Champion for Westcoast at World Dairy Expo finished 4th for her now owners BARCLAY PHOENIX & TRIPLE-T HOLSTEINS.

That is not to say that all the winners from World Dairy Expo did not fare well.  The winning Milking Yearling from World Dairy Expo, HIGH POINT GRAY IVORY, continued her winning ways north of the border. As did the winning Junior Two-Year-Old, TREFLE CHASSEP DOORMAN.

These changes in placings certainly will make things interesting for our inaugural year of the All-North American competition.  (Watch for more on this soon).

The Ugly

WENDON DEMPSEY PRUDE

WENDON DEMPSEY PRUDE
2016 Royal Winter Fair

It seems that instead of celebrating what should have been a great year, the vast majority of the post show discussion is revolving around an unfortunate incident in the four-year-old class.  While many had already annotated the winner from The World Dairy Expo & Reserve Grand Champion, WENDON DEMPSEY PRUDE, with the win at the Royal, I was not convinced.  After walking around, the Royal barns, I figured she had not developed, now being about three months fresh, as much as I had expected and would be in tough to win her class.  (Read more: 2016 Royal Winter Fair Holstein Show Preview).  While I have the utmost respect for the cow and certainly understand why she has such a huge following after the unfortunate event that had occurred with the Chalack family this past year (Read more: There are more important things in life than a cow show), those items are outside the ring. As we all hold true to, judges need to place the cows as they see them on the day at the show.  So, when Judge Marc Comtois did not pull her in with his first six animals, I was not entirely surprised.  What I was surprised with was that he pulled her pretty much at the bottom of the class.  Just to make sure I walked around the end of the class and then realized that her leadsman had decided to move her to the end of the class.  Whether this was a move to make sure the judge would see the cow or whether it was out of spite we will leave that up to the Judge and the leadsman to decide.  What I do know is that the events that followed took things from bad to worse.  Judge Comtois had, several times during the show, been willing to change his initial assessment and made significant moves within previous classes. However, instead, this time he decided to leave the placings as they stood without reviewing his places at the bottom end of the class.

Wendon Dempsey Prude 2016 World Dairy Expo

Wendon Dempsey Prude
2016 World Dairy Expo

What happened after this is certainly what caught everyone’s attention.  When the first place cow led off to walk around to the final lineup and as she passed by the end of the row, Prude acted up, and the leadsperson did a circle with her. That was perceived by many Prude supports as her moving into first place and they let out a huge cheer.  Unfortunately, that was not the case, and that is when everyone’s emotions got even more riled up. 

This is not the first time an Expo winner did not look her best at the Royal and she is not the first cow to get buried in her class.  The way this event has played out and the very emotional discussions from both the Prude supporters and the supporters of Judge Comtois has certainly led to some fairly heated debates on social media.  There are those that wish there was no discussion about this on Facebook and other social media platforms.  Moreover, while I understand the concerns of the families whom this cow has an extremely emotional connection to, it is 2016 and the power of social media had taken what was once milk house fodder for when the semen salesman came in the lane, to the point where it is now open conversations among people from around the world.  The one thing I can say to the families is that at no time do I think this placing had anything to do with who bred the cow or owned the cow.  That is not to say she was not lost in class and the events that followed led to her being buried even farther.  As someone who has had to monitor the conversations on such social groups as The Milkhouse, I can say that at least discussion on these forums lends itself to the facts being told instead of rumors and false accusations that can occur, when the conversation is with two enthusiasts gossiping in a private conversation (Read more: Introducing The Milk House – Dairy Breeder Networking on Facebook). 

The Bullvine Bottom Line

While there are certainly many great stories that have resulted from this year’s Royal Holstein Show, it’s the discussion about one event that will be remembered.  Was Prude slammed or just lost? Did the lead person overreact or was it just a sequence of unfortunate timings? These are questions we may never know the answer to.  What we do know is that the Grand Champion Cow could be one for the ages and, now due to this unfortunate event, we may never see her at the Royal again. We need to celebrate the good, acknowledge the bad and prevent the ugly from ever happening again.
