Natzke, Demmer end junior career on a high note

Oct. 11, 2012 | 0 comments

Early on in the show season, junior members Kyle Natzke, Fond du Lac and Kyle Demmer, from Iowa, set a goal of making the most of their last year as junior Holstein members. And create lasting memories is just what they did when their 5-year-old, Ms Del-Hollow Javent-Red-ET, placed third overall in the competitive 5-year-old class during the International Red and White Holstein Show, Friday, Oct. 5, at World Dairy Expo. She later claimed Reserve Junior Supreme Champion honors.

It was a great way to cap off a successful junior career for us, Natzke stated. He commented, "We both had the goal of going out and buying a cow that would do well in the junior show because it was both our last years."

Natzke added they purchased Javent sight-unseen during a spring sale sponsored by Pierre Boulet in Quebec, Canada.

In addition to Expo, she finished second in her class and was the first junior-owned animal at the Wisconsin State Championship Show this summer in Marshfield. At the Midwest Fall National Show, she claimed grand champion honors of the junior show.

At three years and one month of age, this Advent daughter produced 24,389 pounds of milk, 1,115 pounds of fat and 848 pounds of protein averaging a 4.6 percent fat and 3.5 percent protein test.

The Reserve Supreme Champion is scored 93 points, with a 95-point udder. Her dam is an Excellent Lakeside daughter backed by an 86-point Ranger.

For Natzke, the last 15 years have been an amazing run, with highlights including three grand champions and two Reserve Supreme Champions of the Junior Show, five first-place showmanship awards, winner of the Judy Collinsworth Outstanding Junior Exhibitor Award, and recipient of the Merle Howard Award.

The Fond du Lac youth mentioned his mentor would definitely be his dad, Tim, but working for others has really taught him a lot as well. "I love to work for others and learn how and why they do the things they do from feeding, to caring, to preparing for the show - you can always learn something," he stated.

Natzke admits hard work and determination have propelled him to this stage in his junior career, along with his passion for dairy cattle.

Natzke grew up on his family's registered farm in Fond du Lac, known worldwide as Crestbrooke Holsteins and Jerseys. The farm is managed by his dad and mother, Barb, with assistance from an older sister, Kristin Natzke-Olson.

This past January, he earned the coveted title of Outstanding Holstein Boy during the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Convention and went on to be named one of 12 semi-finalists in the National Distinguished Junior Member competition.

And as long as he can remember, the Holstein cow has been an integral part of his life. Natzke plans to keep it that way as he continues to work as a self-employed cattle fitter.
