The Purple Ribbon Classic, hosted by the Wood Area Holstein Breeders took place on March 3 this year and we are so thankful for all of the support. We had an official average of $2,425 on 44 live lots. The sale crew fielded bids and sold heifers from California to Arkansas to British Columbia!
Our top seller was Lot 3 from Sandy-Valley Farms, a 2708GTPI Jedi from the same family as the top female in the breed GTPI 3011 Highlight . When the gavel finally came down she commanded $5,100 to head to Royal Vista Holsteins of Pickett, WI. Cary Moser of Dream Prairie Holsteins sent a summer yearling Monterey going back to Starbuck Ada(Lot 23). She’s going to have to get her passport out because she’s heading to T&L Cattle Company in British Columbia for $5,000. Next up was the red Armani consigned by Jason Danhof that had the whole sale buzzing. From an EX Ladd-P and then Seisme, the Spears family of Arkansas paid $4,600 to take lot 6 back to Arkansas with them.
To our consignors, bidders and buyers, a heartfelt Thank You. We are forever grateful for your support. To the Wood County Jr’s and their parents, you are the reason why we do this and the driving force in getting all of the work done for the sale. See you all in March of 2018 for the 30th edition of the Purple Ribbon Classic!
