The SPRING for COLORS SALE
May 10, 2014 at ELKHORN, WI

All-Breed average $4,004

 
 

Advertised as “A Multi-Breed Sale Like No Other”, this sale has developed into just that.  121 Head of high quality dairy cattle of all breeds sold into 16 states from Washington and California in the West to four New England states in the East. An emphasis on strong maternal lines made for strong pedigrees in all breeds and the attractive line-up complemented the paperwork.

The Brown Swiss section averaged $4,717. on 61 head and provided the high seller of the day at $35,000.  Top Acres Peppy Wizella was recently named Junior Champion of The Spring Dairy Expo and carries a loaded pedigree as well. Her dam, Top Acres Supreme Wizard ET “E91/93MS”, was named 2013 Unanimous All American Sr. Three Year old following her Reserve Grand Champion finish at The International Show last fall. Wizella is the 5th consecutive generation of the Whizzbangs to win purple ribbons at a major show and sold with an A.I. contract as well. After spirited bidding including four in after $30,000, she is now the property of brand new Brown Swiss breeders Frank and Diane Borba of California and their partners Ken Main and Peter Vail, Elite Dairy, NY. The final contending bid was placed by Shen-Val Farm, Middletown, VA.

Next in line with a $12,700 price tag was the much talked about Milking Shorthorn Junior Champion from The NY Spring Show in April - Hard Core Premium Fire Maid.  Jeremy McDonald consigned this winner and the buyers were Peter Vail, NY, Frank & Diane Borba, CA and Hillpoint Partners, WI.

Third high seller was another Brown Swiss from the Whizzbang family - New View Ollay Wisp selling for $11,250. to Danielle Pacheco, CA. This outstanding fall calf will stand a lot of competition and was one of the extra specials from the group consigned by Ken Main and Peter Vail’s Elite Dairy.

Two outstanding young Brown Swiss cows - Lots 1 and 2 in the catalog are both granddaughters of the 4x All American Timberline Jetway Toni and consigned by Sunshine Associates. They sold for $10,500. each.  Lot 1 is a silky  and wet Power Surge taken by The Groves Family, Billings, MO. Selling just   fresh with a beautiful udder, Lot 2 is a promising Supreme three year old now joining Elite Dairy, NY.

The Spring for Colors Sale was sponsored by Sunshine Associates, Hillpoint Partners and Elite Dairy under the direction of Modern Associates, Wayne E. Sliker, St. Paris,OH.  An all-breed sale force included Brian Garrison, Lee Barber, Jeff Woods, Keith Fisher, Jake Hushon, Kristin Paul, and Brian Schnebly. Wayne Sliker made pedigree announcements and Darrell Worden did his usual fine job with the gavel. Connie Sliker, Deb Hoffman, and Cindy Worden clerked for the event. Allyn Paulson and Dale Bendig headed up a talented preparation crew that had the cattle looking great. Presenting the cattle in the ring were Kathi Meier, Brian Olbrich, Sara Hagenow, Otis Johnson, Molly Olstad, Lindsey Sarbacher, Chris Voegeli, Alyssa Nuttleman, and Ken Elliott.
