Loehr’s Win Prestigious USA Holstein Breeder Award

The winners of the 2020 Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder Award are from right in our own backyard. Kurt and Sarah Loehr, owners of Forest Ridge Holsteins, picked up the prestigious award. 


Sarah Loehr says, “This award is an incredible honor. If you go back and look at the list of past winners, you will see a lot of the “movers and shakers” of the industry.” Since 1988, 10 of those nominated for the national award have hailed from Wisconsin, and four of those honorees have been selected from Fond du Lac County.


The Distinguished Young Holstein Breeder award presented by Holstein Association USA recognizes significant accomplishments of young Registered Holstein breeders for their commitment to preserving the dairy industry and for achieving excellence in their daily lives.
