New York Spring Holstein Sale
April 8th, 2016 at 4pm @ Syracuse, NY
The NY Spring Holstein Sale held on Saturday, April 8 in Syracuse, NY set some new records for the history books.
Topping the sale was Lot 90, a consignment from Furnace-Hill Holsteins, Joel Krall and family from Lebanon, PA. Selling in absentia, this daughter of Bandares born 1/14/17 carried a GTPI +2954, the highest GTPI individual to ever sell at public auction. Bidding was fierce and when the gavel fell at the $275,000.00, the new owner was Progenesis of Canada. Contending bidder of lot 90, ST Genetics, purchased lot 91 a maternal sister carrying a GTPI of 2859 sired by Jedi for $68,000.00. There were four bidders on lot 90 over the $200,000.00 level!
