The Nittany Lion Fall Classic is an annual consignment dairy cattle sale put on by the Penn State Dairy Science Club with management help of Pennsylvania Holstein Association. 2020 marks the 37th year for the event that has become tradition in Happy Valley. As with many things in 2020, the Nittany Lion Fall Classic will look different this year and not even physically be held on campus like normal. After inquiring about multiple potential sale locations, many of which denied access due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was decided that the 2020 Nittany Lion Fall Classic will be held at the Mifflin County Youth Park in Reedsville, PA on October 24 starting at 10:30 am.

Chairman Taylor Wolfe says “The NLFC sale is a long-standing tradition for Penn Staters, and with the help of many alumni and current students, we have been able to work together to carry on that tradition. This sale brings pride to past, present, and future Penn Staters, and I am honored to have been this year’s sale chairman. Even in the middle of the world’s uncertainty, I am exceptionally excited to connect with people from the dairy industry, and begin to get back to doing what we love.”
Along with Wolfe, this year’s event is unfolding under the leadership of her Assistant Chair, Greg Norris. In the last 7 months, college students have been dealing with various cancellations and missing out on numerous “normal” college experiences. The perseverance and diligent efforts of the club has allowed them to continue with the planning process while abiding by school and government restrictions.
The members of The Penn State Dairy Science Club would like to dedicate the 37th annual Nittany Lion Fall Classic Sale in memory of Caleb McGee. While his time at Penn State was short, he left a lasting impression on his friends, professors, classmates, and fellow Dairy Science Club members. Caleb was a promising young student and a cherished member of the Dairy Science Club. He was also extremely active in the Nittany Lion Fall Classic sale, where he had hopes of being this year’s Assistant Chairman. Caleb left a lasting impression on every person that he met, and he will be missed by so many. The industry lost a promising young dairy enthusiast; however, we know that he will be watching over all of us for this year’s sale, and the years to come.
