TOMAH

Due to the generous support of convention donors, Wisconsin Holstein members that are first-time Wisconsin Holstein Convention attendees or are 40 years of age and younger will receive a $25 rebate per night toward their convention costs. The planning committee hopes to encourage more members meeting these qualifications to attend this year's convention Feb. 21-22 at the Cranberry Country Lodge in Tomah.

Holstein members interested in attending should send in the registration form included in the January issue of the Wisconsin Holstein News or visit www.wisholsteins.org to print a registration form.

Registration was due Jan. 30; however those interested may still register with a late fee. Registration forms and payment should be submitted to Kent and Anna Wendorf, E4210 State Hwy 56, Viroqua, WI 54665. Convention questions should be directed to co-chairs Jody Hoyer 608-317-2299 or Steve Holte at 608-632-1598.

The weekend's festivities will kick off at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 21, with registration, an update from Holstein Association USA and Wisconsin Holstein committee meetings.

Dinner for the night will include the presentation of production awards and Friday evening will conclude with the WHA Futures Sale, hosted by the Young Adult Committee (YAC). At 7:30 p.m., 32 choices from the state's best cow families will start selling. Following the sale, members of the Junior Activities Committee (JAC) will be auctioned off for a day's work to raise funds for the Junior Holstein Association.

On Saturday morning, Frank Regan and Bob Miller will be featured on a breeder panel, with Corey Geiger serving as moderator. This session will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the past president's gathering and annual business meeting with elections also scheduled to take place the morning of the 22. There are four directors seeking re-election on the WHA Board of Directors.

Following the business meeting, recognition will be given to Wisconsin's newest Gold Medal Dams, Dams of Merit, 40- & 50-year members, as well as announcing the Wall of Fame inductees.

Three local farms will be featured on Saturday afternoon tours, including Hauve Farm (Tyrone & Barb Johnson) of Cashton, Johnson-Way Holsteins & Ar-Lor Holsteins (Tim Johnson and Brian Stremcha), and Pierce-Vale Farm (Larry, Dawn, Lee and Scott Pierce).

The WHA Service Award recipient, Distinguished Younger Dairy Breeder and Distinguished Breeder will be recognized Saturday evening at the annual banquet, set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Advertising contest winners will be announced, and a dessert auction will be held to benefit the scholarship fund.

In addition, Tom Thibodeau of Viterbo University will speak. He is a director of servant leadership and associate professor in religious studies. The evening will conclude with a DJ.

This year's convention is being hosted by the LaCrosse, Monroe and Vernon County Holstein Associations.
