for Calmar’s Sydney Klimesh... Only 14 4-H/FFA exhibitors are allowed to sell their champion livestock to hometown and national supporters at the auction and Sydney was one of them. Prior to the sale the 14 winners raise funds in their communities. Sydney and her father would like to thank all who have supported them on their journey throughout the years of showing. Sydney grew up in Cresco and then moved to Kenyon, MN with her mother where she graduated from this past May. She also spends part of her time in rural Calmar with her father Keith. Sydney was active in volleyball, softball, National Honor Society, and played trumpet in band, Math Team, and was an FFA officer at Kenyon-Wanamingo Senior High School. Sydney enjoys being outdoors water skiing, camping, and snowboarding in her spare time. She also enjoys being Sydney with her Champion Market Goat at the 2013 Min- Sydney with her market goat that won 4th overall at the nesota State Fair. (Submitted Photo) 2014 Sioux Empire Farm Show.

KLIMESH from page 3

outdoors with her father and family hunting and working on her 4-H/FFA projects. Sydney’s father, Keith spent most of his childhood showing cattle as a 4-H member of the (then) Protivin Pioneers. Keith, along with his brothers and sisters, won many awards working alongside their parents Alice and the late Glen Klimesh. The Klimesh’s continue to pass on their hard work ethic and knowledge of what makes a champion and how to show their animal in the ring. Keith has been with the Winneshiek County Cattlemen’s Association for almost 30 years and is very involved with the Club Calf Sale the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year. They have about 50 to 70 calves from the tri-state area and buyers come from all over Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. About 20 or more calves go to Winneshiek County 4-Hers. For the Klimesh’s, most- if not all, become show cattle that were bought at the sale. Good luck on your shows this summer, Sydney and to your future at Iowa State as you begin your studies in Agricultural Engineering this fall.

Local Century Farms Award Winners By Annette Kriener At the 2013 Iowa State Fair, area farms and families were recognized as being Century or Heritage Farms. To qualify, a family must have owned at least 40 acres for 100 years or more for a Century Farm and 150 years or more for a Heritage Farm. Since 1976, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has partnered with the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation to recognize families that have owned and worked a farm for 100 years or more. Including the 2013 recipients, 17,851 farms have been recognized across the state with Century Farm awards. The Heritage Farm program was started in 2006 and 650 farms have been recognized to date. This year’s ceremony date is August 12. The Calmar Courier attempted to contact all of our area Heritage and Century Farm winners for a photo of them receiving their award last year. Those shown here are the ones we were able to get a photo from. Congratulations to all recipients! PHOTOS continued on pages 8-10

It is a pleasure doing business with all of the Dairy & Beef Producers and FFA Members! Congrats to the 2014 award winners!

Thanks to all the farmers for letting us help keep them moving!

Hawkeye Fun Days Tractorcade Article & Photos by Annette Kriener

The 8th Annual Hawkeye Fun Days Tractorcade took place on Saturday, June 21. Even though the weather was overcast and a light mist was falling for some of the ride all the participants were having a good time. They started out early from Hawkeye and then traveled through St. Lucas, Fort Atkinson, Spillville and then back through Fort Atkinson and St. Lucas to be part of the parade in Hawkeye for their Fun Days celebration. On their way back through Fort Atkinson they stopped at the park near the community center where they enjoyed their choice of coffee, water, bars and cinnamon rolls in a free will donation offered by the St. John’s parish. St. Barbara’s circle leaders were in charge of serving the approximately 50 riders. Some of the riders enjoyed goodies offered under the picnic shelter by St. John’s Parish, St. Barbara’s circle leaders.

June is Dairy Month — a good time to consider the benefits of drinking milk and eating other dairy foods for calcium and Vitamin D. Drinking milk increases bone health, reduces risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and blood pressure. Despite these benefits, some milk myths prevent some people from drinking milk. Some ISU Extension and Outreach myth busters have “busted” a few of these myths below: Milk Myth 1: Milk causes mucus Myth Buster: For some, drinking milk may make mucus thicker than it is normally. However drinking milk for most people does not make your body produce more phlegm and will not worsen a cold. Milk Myth 2: Organic milk is much healthier than conventional milk Myth Buster: Cup for cup, organic and conventionally-produced milk contain the same nine essential nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D and potassium. Both conventionally-produced and organic milk are routinely tested for antibiotics and pesticides and must comply with very stringent safety standards, ensuring that both organic milk and conventional milk are pure, safe and nutritious. Milk Myth 3: Fat-free milk has almost no nutritional value Myth Buster: Fat-free milk has the same amount of calcium, vitamin D and protein as whole, 2 percent and 1 percent milk. The only nutritional difference among the varieties of milk is the amount of fat and calories per serving. Another difference is that fat-free milk is often cheaper than the other varieties. A family of four changing from whole milk to fat-free milk could save $8 to $11 per week and shave off 5,040 calories and 518 grams of fat!
