"Holstein 101" Debuts on Holstein Association USA Web Site
Holstein Association USA has added a new section to the web site, entitled "Holstein 101 A Beginner's Guide to Holstein Cattle." Aimed at those with little or no exposure to Holstein cattle or the dairy industry, the web site features several tabbed sections to help people familiarize themselves with dairy cattle and the Holstein breed. To view the Holstein 101 pages, visit the Holstein Association USA web site at www.holsteinusa.com, and click on the Holstein 101 button located beneath the Recent Updates box on the right side of the page.
The seven sections found on the Holstein 101 page include: Holstein Breed History, Facts about Holstein Cattle, Glossary of Common Dairy Terms, Basic Dairy Cattle Care, What Makes a "Good Cow," Understanding Pedigrees, and Holstein Photos and Desktop Backgrounds. Each section also includes "Recommended Reading" for those interested in digging a little deeper into the content discussed.
Holstein 101 also includes a feature called "Ask a Holstein Expert," where someone can email Holstein Association USA with their questions, if they don't find the answers they're looking for within the web site.
We encourage Holstein enthusiasts to share this resource with younger members and youth agricultural organizations, or anyone who might be interested in learning a little more about the dairy industry. With questions or for more information, contact Lindsey Worden at 800.952.5200, ext. 4096, or LWorden@holstein.com.
