Lot 9 topped the sale with Progenesis of Canada securing the top bid of $200,000.00.  Sired by Welcome Legendary, born 1-24-17, she carried a GTPI +2892 +83F +45P +$982NM +11.6PL +5.1DPR from a Delta dam and EX-90 2nd dam by Uno.  Lots 12 & 14 each sold for $150,000.00 with lot 12 selling to West Coast Holsteins in BC.  Sired by Bandares, born 2-11-17, she carried a GTPI +2883 +$931NM +1118M +71F +59P +8.4PL backed by a VG-DOM Supersire dam from an EX Labelle from the “Laurie Sheik” family!  Lot 14 sold to De Novo Genetics, WI sired by Bandares, born 10-18-16 carrying a GTPI +2853 +$934NM +1426M +95F + 56P +2.52T.  The dam of lot 14 by Delta, was the sale topper at the 2015 Spring Sensation Sale for $190,000.00 and is turning out some very high sons & dtrs.!  2 other lots (8A & 25) sold for $110,000.00 each.  Lot 8A sold to Progenesis sired by Jedi with a GTPI +2815 +$878NM +1869M +80F +71P.  This heifer is ready to IVF and backed by a VG-87 Kingboy dam from a VG-86 Uno back to “Colby Taya”!  Lot 25 was a Jedi selling to Peak Genetics with GTPI +2874 +92F +77P +$240FE ready to IVF from a Tatum dam and Supersire Grdam.

While the genomic cattle might have carried the day on prices, the sale featured a sensational line up of show age yearlings, calves and bred heifers with world class pedigrees!  Buyers of Oakfield Corners bred cattle have been handsomely rewarded in the show ring as well as producing the highest GTPI cattle available and this group will be no exception!

Jonathan and Alicia Lamb, the entire Lamb family and the complete staff of Oakfield Corners Dairy, left no stone unturned.  Only the finest on the farm are selected for the sale, the quality was amazing from beginning to end with pedigrees as long as your arm.  The fitting staff had the cattle looking show ready and the Lamb’s hosted an open house the evening before the sale and a pig roast immediately following.

The sale was managed by The Cattle Exchange of Delhi, NY with David Rama handled the gavel, Tim Abbott and Dan Brandt presented pedigrees, Dave Crack, Rick Verbeek, Scott Culbertson, Nick Raggi, Don Welk, Ray Leblanc, Kelly Reynolds, Katie Coyne, Tim Rauen, Abe Light, Jamie Black & Kevin Ziemba handled bids plus online bidding with Cowbuyer.com.  Merry Rama & Jeannie Nichols performed all clerking duties.

The NY Holstein Harvest Sale on Saturday, October 29th promises to be a memorable day for all.  The cattle look tremendous with an outstanding array of high production young cows, a smashing set of bred heifers, flashy show prospects for next year & Genomic leaders for the future all backed by stellar maternal lines and the breeds greatest sires!  The sale will be broadcast live via cowbuyer.com with real time bidding to pre-approved bidders!

The NY Harvest Sale will also be the final sale for the legendary Horace Backus.  Horace is respected around the world for his knowledge of the breed and his 70 plus years of service and dedication to all.  For years to come, buyers from this year’s Harvest Sale will be showing off their purchases and their descendants with the following statement: “I bought her or I bought her mother in the NY Holstein Harvest Sale in 2016, the last sale Horace Backus ever read pedigrees at”.  A memory that will last a lifetime!

In addition, Patricia Gifford will be retiring at the end of the year as the NY Holstein Executive Secretary.  Patsy has worked hard to build the NY Holstein Association into the premier state association that it is today.  Coming off what many say is the greatest National Convention in memory and a strong, enthusiastic NY membership, we tip our hat to Patsy for all her efforts and guidance over the years.

To both Horace & Patsy, enjoy retirement and we will always look forward to seeing you at Holstein events!

Horace will be available to sign books he has authored prior to and immediately after the sale as well as sale catalogs!
