Maurice Mix led two of the most important departments of the Holstein Association USA, Inc. He began his career as the director of Classification Services in 1967. Under Mix’s guidance, the classification program grew rapidly and became known as the best classification program of dairy cattle in the world.
In 1978, Mix was promoted to the position of director of International Affairs for the Association. In the role, he was responsible for the management of all international activities of the Holstein Association, with emphasis on market development, public relations, animal health standards and finance.
Known as “Mr. Holstein” throughout this country and the world, his relentless passion for educating foreign and domestic dairy industry leaders on the benefits and advantages of milking Holsteins as a profitable business or as a source of food in different countries is legendary.
Many dairy producers in the U.S. are benefiting today from the work Mix has done.
