Te California Holstein Association has enjoyed several great events this past year. Te Airosa 100th Anniversary Sale, hosted by the Airosa Family, the Earthquake Sale, hosted by Borba, Borba, Glazeway and Durrer Fami- lies, and the Oceanview Dispersal of Marvin Nunes, has brought the spot- light to our Golden State. Tese Holstein events remind me of the old Ruann Fiestas and Quist Gold Rush sales. Te late Doug Maddox always said “our organization is about people, it’s about friendships and relation- ships. Tis is a membership organization!” He was so right. “Tank You” to all these families who have worked so hard to put California in the national spotlight.


Our state show in April was judged by Michael Heath of Maryland. At the end of the day, the Champion was Calori-D Jasper Marigold - ET, exhibited by the Mast Family. Congratulations on breeding and showing such a great champion. Also, our 2012 Futurity winner this year, Will Tattoo Lacey-ET was exhibited by Lacey and Adam Van Exel . Great job!


I would like to thank our California Holstein State Board of Directors. Tis group has worked hard to plan and budget our activities. Tank you to each and every member of the board. Also, board member Ray Quersma retired and his position was filled by Mike Moretti of Peta- luma. Tank you Ray and welcome Mike.


Our Junior Holstein organization has continued to be very successful and competitive at the state and national level under the guidance of Kirsten Areias. I have seen a tremendous mem- bership increase in junior events like Cow Camp and the State Show. Tank you Kirsten and parents who have helped develop some of the greatest young people in California.


Our 2012 State Convention was hosted by Redwood Empire Holstein Club in Santa Rosa. Te hospitality was fantastic, the sale was successful, and the meetings and events were well at- tended. Congratulations for a job well done. Your hard work and planning was appreciated by everyone.


Tank you Carolina Evangelo and your staff for this year’s annual. We are proud of our year- book and your hard work can be enjoyed by everyone who advertises and reads this fine pub- lication.


A couple people I would like to thank before I close. Tank you goes to Hank Van Exel for representing Region 9 on the National Holstein Board. Tank you goes to Angie Kennedy and Dennis Edlund, Holstein field staff, for the outstanding work representing Holstein USA. And, thanks Kate Briggs for your hard work and dedication as our California office manager.


Our dairy industry continues to experience challenging times. I am confident that we will meet these challenges and will overcome adversity. Within our membership, we have the col- lective genius to solve these and other problems. LET’S WORK TOGETHER. Remember, this is a membership organization and “its about people”.
