SPRING COLOR SELECTIONS
May 1, 2017 - Great Northern Sales Arena, Fond du Lac, WI
67 Brown Swiss Averaged $3,379 - 14 Guernseys Averaged $3,193

The quality group of Brown Swiss featured a sizeable selection from Ken Main and Peter Vail's Elite Dairy, Copake, New York. Other leading herds were represented with consignments coming from some of the breed's most reliable cow families and popular sires.

The smaller, but quality group of Guernseys was sponsored by Hillpoint Partners along with several of their associates. They were well received selling to 5 different states.

Topping the event at $12,600 was the choice of December '16 Jongleur show calves from the "2E95" 6x All American Nominee, Top Acres Supreme Wizard ET. The winning bidders couldn't decide on this fancy pair so they are taking them both west to California. Matthew and Danielle Pacheco are the proud new owners of these "World of Whizzbang" calves from Top Acres, St. Paris, Ohio.

Third high of the day came from the Guernsey section when Lot 78 commanded $7,500 from Land of Living Farm, Mechanicsburg, Ohio. Knapps HP GG Pies Tessa-ET is an extra fancy December '16 Pies daughter from the phenomenal brood cow, Knapps Ace Tamera. Hillpoint Partners and Daniel Basse, Cross Plains, WI provided this major league show prospect.

Next on the high sellers’ list came from the Elite Dairy group when Cutting Edge B Fawn ET sold for $7,000 to Ron Kelm, Markesan, Wisconsin. Fawn is an extra large Bonanza from 5 “Ex” dams and is due beofre the shows as a senior 2 year old.

Folliwng next in line with a $6,500 price tag was Top Acres HP Peppy Gina ET, Lot 65. A "VG87/2y" Chilli Pepper from Gloria "3E93/94MS", Gina sold to Robert Guidice, New Brighton, Pennsylvania and was the consignment of Top Acres and Hillpoint Partners, St. Paris, Ohio.

The sale was directed by Modern Associates, St. Paris, Ohio in cooperation with Great Northern Sales, Rick and Paula Bovre. Darrell Worden served as auctioneer with Brian Garrison, Lee Barber and Rick Bovre fielding bids along with assistance from Dave Wallace and Dale Bendig. Wayne Sliker was box man for the Brown Swiss with Seth Johnson as special consultant and pedigree expert for the Guernseys. Cowbuyer.com provided online bidding which resulted in a number of purchases through the service.
