Siemers Holsteins is honored to be a 2017 Herd of Excellence. The Herd of Excellence Award was developed to recognize Registered Holstein breeders who have bred and developed excellent herds made up of cows with superior type and production. For the first time since the award started nine years ago, there are three herd size divisions that are based on the number of cows included in production averages for each herd. The categories are as follows: small herds (10-99 cows), medium herds (100-499 cows), and large herds (500+ cows).
