Holstein USA has record year

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — Holstein Association USA members set an all-time record by officially identifying 742,910 Holsteins in 2017. This is an increase of 8 percent, or 52,357 over the previous record set in 2016.

Registrations totaled 384,181 head, up 6,876 from 2016. Additionally, there were 358,729 animals identified through the Association’s Basic ID program, an increase of 45,481.

The Basic ID program is a stepping stone to full registry status.

The continual growth of the Holstein breed speaks to the economic advantage dairies across the country receive by producing Holstein milk, said Holstein Association CEO John M. Meyer.
