Association USA, Inc. 7/21/96
- The Holstein Association USA, Inc. is a
nonprofit, membership organization made up of approximately 45,000
people with strong interests in breeding, raising and milking
Holstein cattle. It is the world's largest dairy cattle breed
organization and is headquartered in Brattleboro, Vermont.
Their web site isn't too good. There are no links to any other
site (which makes it a dead end), and the logo of the company they
hired to maintain the web site is displayed as large as Holstein's
and in such a way that it seems more prominent than Holstein's
They have a page for
sales that takes forever to load. It also is inappropriate. It
gives the wrong impression as to the priorities of Holstein USA.

- This list is at our web site and is presented as a public
service until such time as the USDA figures out that it has some
responsibility to present this information in a form that the
public can access. It would only take them 10 minutes (that is how
long it took me to get this page on the web.) Sorry no type data

- REALLY RAW! The USDA is assuming no responsibility to present
this data to the public in an understandable form. You're have to
wait for the semen venders.

Show Reform Act 7/21/96
- The State of Ohio is cracking down on show ring cheats. What
they don't know yet is that the dairy show people may cheat even
more than the beef guys. We're just harder to catch.

exhibits and several industry seminars. Join over 68,000 dairy
producers and agri-business representatives from more than 78
countries for World Dairy Expo at the Dane County Expo Center in

- An amazing elite group of cattle were trucked from all across
Canada and the United States to be shown during this world
Our biggest problem as dedicated Registered Holstein
This is strictly my own opinion as of 7/21/96 and does not apply
to Holstein Canada or the Ohio Holstein Association.
"In all of American agricultural history, there has probably never
been a membership organization that has grown more "out of touch"
with it's membership than Holstein USA.
"They have pretty much abandoned their function as a member
service organization. They have totally ceased promoting Registered
Holsteins vs.grades. Many of their programs undermine the value of
Registered Holsteins. "Whose side are these guys on?", is a
legitimate concern when dealing with Holstein.
