Once again, The Revue was conducted during the Spring Dairy Expo at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus, Ohio. A sizeable crowd was on hand to appreciate a high quality offering that featured a special lineup of full pedigreed heifers with a smaller number of promising young cows.

Topping the event at $16,500 was Blessing Mort Garbro O Gaby ET, an extra fancy fall calf sired by Braiden out of Top Acres Pilot Groovy ET, a “3E” All American and former Madison Reserve Grand Champion. Gaby was provided by Blessing Farms of Fort Wayne, IN along with their partners Garrison Brothers, Rex Mort and Bob Osborn. She is now part of the Elite Dairy show string as she was purchased by Ken Main and Peter Vail of Copake, NY. Dakota Fraley, Muncy, PA was the contender on this outstanding heifer.

Sun-Made Elite Nova ET was next in line on the high selling list at $13,000 and was taken by John & Bonnie Ayars and Kenny Manion, Mechanicsburg, OH. Her baby calf brought an additional $2750 going to Regan Shockey, Ravenswood, WV. Nova, a fancy uddered Supreme from the Nora Family, and her calf were consigned by Top Acres, St. Paris, OH.

Also in 5 figures, Blessing Garbro F Porsha ET sold for $10,000 to Amy Hughes & Adyan Watts, Brinkhaven, OH. This sporty Winning Formula winter calf was consigned by Blessing Farms & Garbro Swiss and features 7 “Ex” dams from the Priscilla Family.

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