The 2014 Edition of this successful sales series was well attended with several new faces in the crowd as well on hand the evening before to enjoy a chicken dinner. The McCormick Co. sponsored evening activities at the Cobleskill Fairgrounds as well as awards to the consignors of the high seller. A final average of $3,088 on 75 head tallied an all time high for this long running sale series with buyers coming from 11 states as well as Ontario, Canada. At the end of the day 10 head passed thru the ring for $5,000 or more.

Topping the high sellers list was Lot 1 - a recently bred fancy Cutting Edge Teaton heifer from 5 “EX” All American Nominated dams. She was one of the specials from the quality group consigned by Ken Main and Peter Vail, Elite Dairy, Copake, NY. Selling for $6,700, this standout heifer is now owned by Zachary Schermerhorn, Oakfield, NY.

Selling for $6,600 was a close up bred heifer from 10 generations of “EX” ¬†Snowstorm dams taken by Mauricio Moreno, TX/OH/PA/CO. She was one of the feature consignments from Top Acres, St. Paris, OH.

A sizeable semen and embryo inventory also sold along with some show equipment with part of the proceeds donated to benefit Junior Members from the New York and New England Breeders' Associations.

The Eastern Breeders' Sale was again managed by Modern Associates of St. Paris, Ohio with Wayne Sliker handling pedigree announcements. David Bush was the man with the gavel assisted in the ring by Richard Stephens, Dale Bendig and Gordon DeMay. Connie Sliker, Ginny Sliker and Kathy DeMay served as clerks for the day.
