Loehrs Named National Holstein Distinguished Young Breeders
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/26/2020
A Fond du Lac County dairy farm couple has been recognized as the Distinguished Young Holstein Breeders of the Year by the National Holstein Association. During the group's virtual convention this week, Kurt and Sarah Loehr of Eden were
announced as the winners of the top award. They previously earned the same honor at the state level.
The Loehrs' cattle are registered under the Forest-Ridge prefix. Sarah was a National DJM semi-finalist during her youth and brought Kurt along on a journey that has established them as a well-respected name in Registered Holstein circles.
They married in 2010 and took over the farm a year later. Today, the Loehr's 92-cow herd has a Rolling Herd Average of 23,289 pounds of milk, 929 pounds of fat, and 738 pounds of protein. The farm also has 21 Excellent and 46 Very Good
cows with a 110.7 BAA, making them one of the top 100 BAA herds in the country. They also claimed three All-American nominations, and five Red and White All-American nominations.
Kurt also serves on the Wisconsin Holstein Association board of directors.
