Wescott, D a i r y m a n a n d Boston To Host Meeting Speaking recently of the forthcoming Annual Convention of Holstein-Friesian Association of America, Executive Secretary Robert H. Rumler stated that "Realism" will be the keynote of the Association's A n n u a l Meeting. Scheduled for June 28 through July 2, in Boston, Massachusetts, the Annual Meeting of the World's largest dairy breed organization which is expected to attract over 1,500 delegates, members, Holstein breeders and guests will be hosted by the Holstein breeder-members of the New England States Holstein- Friesian Association. General discussions on the affairs of- the breed and the Association in the Convention's Open Forum sessions are expected to bring out constructive thoughts and ideas for consideration by the Association's policy making Board of Directors for the decade of the *70's. In the interest of expanding discussions by those attending the Convention, four different Open Forum sessions have been scheduled to be held simultaneously with different areas of Association concern to be open for discussion in each of the sessions. The Convention theme, according to Secretary Rumler, will be, "Relating to the Realism of the '70's." Underscoring Realism in the Convention Theme will be the feature speakers for the Convention, Dr. J. W. Pou, Vic President of Wachovia Bank and Trust Company, Greenville, N. C., and Mr. Lloyd B. Wescott, Rosemont, N. J. Both feature speakers are scheduled to be heard on the final afternoon of the official Convention session on July 1. The keynote of Tleafism as well as the Convention theme of "Relating to the Realism of the "70's" represents a continuation of the Association's basic and fundamental policy of long-range planning in ten years sectors. Referring to the decade of Holstein history just past, Secretary Rumler stated in his Annual Report to Holstein Association members that "virtually all of the long-range goals of the Association set in 1958 for achievement by 1970 have been reached. Industry and breed predictions for this period have become realities. The long-range plans of the Association generally have been carried to completion al though it is recognized that each program and activity must be subject to periodic improvement and refinement." In this same letter of transmittal, looking to the future, he stated that "advances will not be forthcoming or participation sustained by the normal, routine, standard modus operand! of a breed association as we have know it in the past. These evaluations (of 1969 statistics) suggest that a new look, a gradual change in profile, an expanded modus operandi, a structuring of new programs and a restructuring of our present programs to relate more specifically to the total industry in the 1970's are called for."

W. Craun, Association President. Historically the two-day annual business session of the Association has provided for an "Open Forum" session at which time the privilege of the Convention Floor is extended to any member of the Association for the discussion of appropriate matters relating to the affairs of the Association. Other sessions of the Convention, while open to all members and interested guests, are limited to discussions by Officers, Directors and officially elected Convention Delegates who proportionately represent the active membership of the Association throughout the country. According to President Craun, the Boston Convention will provide a much broader opportunity for the discussion of Association affairs during the "Open Forum" sessions this year. Actually, four separate "Open Forum" sessions will be conducted simultaneously during the first afternoon of the Convention. These four sessions, each chaired by a member of the Board of Directors, will be open for the discussion of selected phases of the Association's business Selected to chair the separate sessions will be members of the Board of Directors who are themselves Chairmen of the four major committees of the Board and members of the Executive Committee W. L. Conyngham, Chairman of the Executive Committee, will chair the "Open Forum" session concerning itself with the general organization of the Association, membership, registrations, transfers, artificial insemination procedures and policies, rules enforcement procedures, as well as matters dealing with the Association's new organized subsidiary corporation, Holstein- Friesian Services, Inc Matters relating to the financing of Association programs, its policies on fees, investments and reserves, as well as other matters relating to the general economic well being of the Association will be discussed in the "Open Forum" session under the Chairmanship of Gordon W.

Under the Chairmanship of van Stnckler, Chairman of the Board of Directors' Extension lommittee, topics relating to Association's publicity, promo- ion and advertising programs, as well as those dealing with the otal Holstein program in the ield (field work) and the mportant role of State and Local folstein Associations in the total Holstein program will be discussed. The purpose of this revised format for the "Open Forum" sessions is to provide a greater opportunity for communication between Association members and delegates and those who are responsible for the formulation of Association policy as members of the Board of Directors In each of the sessions, the members of the Board of Directors serving on the respective committees will be in attendance as will be the members of the Association's management and operating staff who are responsible for the respective areas of Association programs to be discussed in each of the sessions In announcing the new format for "Open Forum," President Craun also indicated his optimism that much good could accrue from such an open and free discussion of Association matters providing discussions are limited to constructive and forward thinking in the light of the situation which may face the Association in the 1970's. Conversely, he felt that the sessions could be doomed to failure if the discussions were not held to a high plane of constructiveness He stated further that this plan offers a real opportunity for delegates and members to present constructive and progressive ideas which will keep the Holstein breed and the Association in its strong and positive USERS SAY: The nicest thing about a Mix-Mill® feed processing system... when you need it, it doesn't need you! mix-nun* FARM FEED FACTORY position oi leadership in the decade ahead It is to this end that these sessions are dedicated according to President H.
