Holstein World: You’re young and obviously committed to making a living in the dairy and purebred Holstein industry. What does the breed need to do to maintain its success and ensure the livelihood of fellow Holstein breeders?
Ryan Matheron: Registered cattle are definitely the backbone of our family operation. I feel they are what make those same old day-to-day tasks more enjoyable when you are working with good cows. I enjoy all aspects of the purebred industry whether it is the showing, high indexing cattle, or the deep proven cow families. I believe to maintain the high level of success this industry has experienced over the years, it is all in the hands of the breeders. I feel, as an industry if we maintain honesty and integrity then the registered Holstein cow will thrive for many years to come.
