Had 469 head DAIRY cattle on May 3rd special heifer sale. Our largest sale so far. Still a buyers market with many open heifers from $.80-.85/lb. Some fancy Holsteins to $1.00. 5 Jersey heifers approximately 400lbs @ $625/head! Nearly 200 consigned already for next heifer sale June 7th. Please call to have your cattle included in advertising. Had a horrible customer service experience from one of our regular vendors; I figured they might want to know so I called and told them. (Don’t think they cared as much as I did.) Got to thinking about it, even though I think quite highly of our staff, I wonder if any of our customers have a less than satisfactory experience... if you have, please let me know so we can fix it!


We have Ascension Day church services May 10th, so we scheduled a Tuesday sale. Top cow last week 2150 Tom Wiker, Mineral Point. Still a lot of good quality cows selling 900-1600. Recently sold several top herds private treaty, two were averaging in the 90s and one was over 100lbs!! As always feel free to call with any marketing questions and don’t forget, if you can’t make it to the sale, we do order buying with no cost to you. Be safe as you get in the rush of field work!


Top cow this week 1750 Gideon Miller, Cashton. We again had a lot of good quality cows last week. Milk futures are looking up & top cows selling a little higher! Still an excellent opportunity to upgrade your herd with many good cows going for $1,200-1,600. Recently saw an interesting church sign: "Just a reminder, we are still open between Easter and Christmas."
