50 Head Averaged $3,420 to 12 States


Once again The Revue was conducted during the Spring Dairy Expo at the Ohio State Fairgrounds, Columbus, Ohio. The market was a little slow on milk cows, however, the spirited bidding on the special lineup of heifers and show heifers sparked the success of the event.

The top sellers were a fancy pair of heifers . . . one from each 95 point member of the 4x Unanimous All American Produce of Dam. For the third consecutive year, the top seller was a daughter of Top Acres Supreme Wizard ET "2E95/All American/34,913m. This year's topper was Wizard's streamlined December 2016 Carter calf selling for $14,000m to Brooke Foote, Fort Plain, NY. Contending on this AI contracted show type heifer was Lindsey Rucks from Florida. Next in line at $10,000 was the well balanced summer yealring prospect by Cutting Edge Thunder and from Top Acres Supreme Wisp "3E95"/33,731m/4x AA Nominee. Adding this promising heifer to their growing and quality Brown Swiss herd was the Richard Love Family, Scottdale, PA who outlasted Brian Pacheco, CA in a bidding duel via phone contact handled by Brian Garrison.

Starting the sale off was a tall, long and flashy September 2016 Cutting Edge Tallant show calf from Top Acres Garbro Wanda ET . . . also from the Whizzbang family and consigned by Cindy Warner, Frederick, MD. She sold for $7700 and is now the property of Brian Pacheco, Kerman, CA.

The Revue was again managed by Modern Associates, St. Paris, OH. Tim Eiting and Darrell Worden shared selling duties with Wayne E. Sliker handling pedigrees and announcements as the box-man. Lee Barber and Brian Garrison worked the ring and phones along with cowbuyer.com providing online viewing and bidding.

Connie Sliker and Deb Hoffman clerked and Jenna Hoffman and her crew of Ohio Juniors were the leadspersons. Dale Bendig and associates had the cattle looking great and to the ring on time.
