It seems spring is rather slow in coming, but it WILL come!! I’ve been trying to think of slogan for our business. The other day someone was here and said, “this is the best little dairy sale!” Maybe we’ll go with that.
Overall still a very challenging market but top cows trending higher. This was the second sale in a row Gideon Miller, Cashton had the top cow @ $2,050. Many decent cows selling $800-1300. Top springer heifer $1400, most bred heifers $800-1200. We may well not be the newest or fastest growing auction around, but believe me, we are extremely pleased with the volume and quality of cattle coming through the doors. To date we’re averaging 260 head DAIRY cattle per sale, sure am glad for all the consignor and buyer support we get!!
Over 300 head DAIRY cattle. Still a challenging market over all but top cows trending higher. We may well not be the newest or fastest growing auction around, but believe me, we are extremely happy with the volume and quality of cattle coming through the doors!!
Beautiful spring-ish day. Continued excellent opportunity to buy good quality cows at very reasonable prices! Top cow $1,500 Perry Miller, Cashton. 3 cows at $1,450 each. The “Mielke” market weekly quoted the average dairy cow price in WI in January as $1,470, I wonder how they came up with that number...guess I should call and ask. Thanks for all the positive feedback on our auctions!
Sold well over 400 dairy cattle, standing room only crowd. Top cow $1,800 Dennis Martin, Memphis MO. Heifers sold very well considering the current market. Next special heifer sale will be March 1st. We already have 2 complete dispersals lined up & expect 500 head or so!
