Sale Results

When one hears the date April 6th, thoughts of spring and warmer temperatures usually come to mind.  However, April 6, 2018 certainly did not live up to expectations in the weather department, with frigid temperatures and blowing snow causing white-out conditions in some areas.  But the enthusiasm for a tremendous line-up of cattle at the Spring Selections at the Northern was evident as a large crowd made their way to the Great Northern Sales Arena, Fond du Lac, WI to participate in the sale.

Touted as an offering of value-added Holsteins and Jerseys, the offering certainly did not disappoint and offered something for everyone. At day’s end the 108 whole lots averaged $3,566.

An added lot from Colganados Genetics LLC and Carlos Felipe, Chicago, IL garnered many admirers and provided the sale’s high seller at $18,200.  Colganados D Avianca-Red-ET EX-92 sold just fresh and looking the part to be a major contender in the 5 year old class.  Sired by Destry from the Apple clone, Apple A1 “VG-87”, Avianca was purchased by Jonathan and Alicia Lamb, Oakfield, NY with Martin Kinyon, Lone Rock, WI contending.

Selling for $10,000 was the Jersey consignment of Zach, Blake and Mitch Schulte, Blairstown, Iowa. Schulte Bros Teq Dora-ET is a Tequila summer yearling from the EX-93 Iatola, Dare to Dream, who is a show winning granddaughter of World Champion Veronica EX-97 5E.  When the gavel fell, Jared Dickman, Lanark, IL had placed the final bid and is certain to have an exciting time in the show ring this year!

Another exceptional show ring prospect was consigned by Quietcove Hoslteins and Austin Trbovich, Wapakoneta, OH.  Lot 5, Miss Lexys Lucky Lady-ET is a pretty Doorman winter calf that is certain to get much attention and show ring exposure from her new owners, Brianne, Brooklyn & Reid Vandoske, Cleveland, WI.  The Vandoskes paid $9,300 for this granddaughter of the EX-95 All-American Rosedale Lexington-ET who is also making her mark as a tremendous brood cow.

Several daughters of KHW Regiment Apple-Red-ET EX-96 4E 19* DOM were offered in the sale by Apple Partners LLC, Lanark, IL.  Claiming the top price of $8,500 was a silky black Solomon summer yearling who will join a couple of her older sisters that have been very influential at Golden Oaks Farm, Wauconda, IL.

Another extremely stylish, well balanced summer yearling, Lot 48, sold for $8,100 to Kaylie Zapalac and Hayden Haedge, Hico, TX.  From the eighth generation Excellent, RJR Sid 3273-ET EX-92 who was Junior All-American Milking Yearling in 2014, this Diamondback daughter was consigned by Norman Nabholz, West Union, IA.

Cattle sold coast to coast with buyers coming from Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, Texas, Oklahoma and California as well as Ontario and British Colombia.
