The 83rd Eastern Breeders' Sale
October 19, 2019 | Cobleskill, NY

Another year was added to the long run of the successful Eastern Breeders sale series on October 19 at the Cobleskill Fairgrounds. With over half the sale made up of open heifers and project age calves, the average for the day was $2,167 on 62 head. The relatively large selection of young calves was sold to a full crowd including several new buyers. 

The "World of Whizzbang" provided the two high sellers headed by a fresh milking fall yearling Braiden from Top Acres Supreme Wizard ET "2E95" Madison Champion with 35,500m. This special young cow was consigned by Hillpoint Partners and Wayne E. Sliker, Cross Plains, WI. Following active bidding, the partnership of Larry & Beanie Hill and Tony Wisely, Falconer, NY paid $9,100 to take her home. Contenders were on the phone from Florida. 

Second high for the day at $8,500 was another Wizard daughter. This one is an attractive December 2018 Cadence daughter from Top Acres with contract possibilities. She will now make her home in Quebec with Sylvain Boulanger and Christine Dulac, Lambton, PQ following a bidding duel with Dr. Matt lager, the final contender from Maryland. 

Robert Gould provided the third high seller at $6,400 which was another purchase by the Hill & Wisely partners. An extra fancy Daredevil spring yearling, this one is out of an "EX" Bonanza from the Gredel Family. 

The Eastern Breeders Sale was again managed by Modern Associates, St. Paris, Ohio. Dave Bush was the auctioneer with Wayne E. Sliker as the box-man. Working the ring and using their phones to advantage were Brian Garrison, Dale Bendig and Gordon DeMay.
