Te year 2011 will be remembered as a year of “change” for the California State Holstein Association. Tese changes will be seen in several areas of our association. First, as the new President, I want to thank Jamie Bledsoe for his years of leadership of our organization. Jamie has shared his leadership skills with the California Holstein Association and also with many other dairy organizations throughout California. I also thank our past Treasurer, Jared Fernandes, who retired his position after many years of service to California Holstein. As these two great directors leave the board of California Holstein, I want to welcome our two newest directors, Anthony Souza from South San Joaquin Valley, and Sarah Zonneveld, our new At-Large director from the South. Tese “changes” to the board are exciting and I look forward to their contributions to our state association.


One new “change” this year was moving the state convention in January to Bass Lake by the Fresno Holstein club. Tis well organized event was at snow level in the Sierra Mountains and the event was enjoyed by everyone. Tank you to the Fresno club for hosting such a memorable state convention.


Another “change” happened at our state show in April. Tis event included our first ever Red and White Show inter- mingled with the Black and White Show. A special thanks goes to Tony DeMello and Tim Baumgartner for facilitat- ing the Red and White show. Our state show chairmen, Ryan Matheron and Matt Evangelo, did an outstanding job putting our show together, including the new show ring facility. Tis ring allowed the judge, Justin Burdette, plenty of room to evaluate the best Holsteins and Jersey’s on the West Coast. Congratulations to the Maddox family for exhibiting the Grand Champion Black and White and to the Red Rena Syndicate for exhibiting the Grand Champion Red and White. I would like to thank Holstein World for the on-line coverage, the donors, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers, and ringside fans that helped make this event so successful.


Our junior association will “change” their cow camp location this summer from Cal Poly to the Redwood Empire area. Tis years’ cow camp promises to be fun and educational. Tank you to Cal Poly for hosting this event the past few years. Congratulations to the many successes of our Junior Club and wish them luck in their projects and competitions this coming year. Tank you to Kirsten Areias for her leadership of our younger generation of Holstein breeders.


Another “change” is the California Holstein web-site. As we move forward, this news media will become interac- tive and a better location for spreading information to our membership and to the other Holstein fans throughout the United States and abroad. I invite you to visit this web-site and keep current on the latest Holstein news in California.


Te California Holstein News Annual is a product of many hours of long work, phone calls, meetings, and deadlines. Tis great publication is brought to you by Editor, Carolina M. Evangelo. Her staff and support people have delivered another great magazine for Holstein breeders everywhere to enjoy. Tank you, Carolina.


Also, thank you Kate Briggs for all the work you do with our membership throughout the year. Very few members realize the “behind the scenes” hard work required to be the office manager of California and for that, I say thanks.


In closing, I want to thank every member of our state association.


group of wonderful people. “Change” is everywhere - learn to embrace it!
