California Holstein Breeder’s know that Summer has officially begun when they re- ceive their copy of the California Holstein News Annual Magazine! Welcome to Sum- mer everyone, and this year’s issue of Te Annual!


Carolina Evangelo


I’m sure the first thing all of you noticed was this year’s gorgeous cover!


I want to congratulate Calori-D Holsteins, Stephen


and Rebekah Mast, for exhibiting this year’s Grand Champion – Calori-D Jasper Marigold-ET. Marigold is truly a homebred success for the Mast Family.


I want to congratulate all of this year’s award winners, espe- cially, this year’s Doug Maddox Senior Breeder Award Winner, George and Dora McClelland and this year’s A.J. Quist Award Winner, Natalie Silva. In the coming pages you will read about all of their tremendous accomplishments and contributions to the Holstein Breed.


As you read through this year’s magazine, you will find that the Junior Association is thriving! Congratulations to all of our junior members who have been honored for their numerous accomplishments; especially this year’s Distinguished Junior Member and California Holstein Princess, Taylor Pires. I send best wishes to all of our California junior’s headed to the Na- tional Convention in Springfield, Missouri – there’s no doubt in my mind that you will make our Association proud!


Our Junior Association is only as strong as the leaders that guide it, a very special thank you is extended to Kirsten Areias and all of our parent volunteers, for the endless hours they share, with our juniors, molding them into the leaders they are becoming.


When flipping through this year’s State Show pages you will notice that we have gone back to using head shots of our All California and Junior All California Winners. Te publication committee members feel that our organization is just as much about people, as it is about cows. We wanted to make sure we highlight our members, as well as their winning cows.


To both breeders and commercial advertisers of the Annual, this publication would not exist without your help and sup- port – thank you for your generosity and ongoing support of the magazine. It has been a pleasure working with all of you this year!


I want to thank all of the amazing people on our team that helped shape this year’s magazine into California’s Premier Holstein Publication. I owe a very special thank you to Sarah Zonneveld for joining our team this year as our ad copy coordi- nator. Sarah’s knowledge, expertise, efficency and attention to every detail made our ads come together seamlessly. I also want to spotlight Eric Cribbs, our graphic designer, for his creativity and the tremendous efforts that he put into making the pages of this magazine come alive. I couldn’t have done it without both of you, thank you, Sarah and Eric!


A final thank you is extended to the Association’s Publication Committee, a group of dedicated members who help review content and provide input for continued improvement of this publication. To committee members: Dino Migliazzo, Patrick Maddox, Melanie-Dias Hoggard, Tara Davis, Tony De Mello and Kate Briggs - your time and dedication is truly appreciated.


In closing, I would be remiss to not mention the loss of a very dear friend and dairy industry icon, Mr. Doug Maddox. His in- spiration, outlook on life, many lessons shared and love for our business will never be forgotten. Our association has lost many friends this year, my sympathy is extended to all of their loved ones - may all of our departed friends rest in peace.


It has been a pleasure working with all of you, enjoy this year’s Annual Magazine!


Until Next Time, Carolina M. Evangelo Editor
