Fairvale’s Farewell

Fairvale’s Farewell tops $24,000
Selling agents Dairy Livestock Services 
Top price: $24,000 – Sale average: $3885
More than 170 lots were bought by Victorian buyers

A huge crowd of Holstein breeders from throughout Australia converged at Bracknell, Tasmania for the first stage Complete Dispersal Sale of Ross and Leanne Dobson’s Fairvale Holsteins.

Fairvale drew the crowd because it is the most anointed prefix at Australia’s biggest show – International Dairy Week (IDW). It has bred and reared five IDW champions for three different exhibitors between 2005 and 2014. This achievement has always been more significant, because Fairvale has never shown at IDW in its own right, it is separated from Australia’s mainland by 240 kilometres of ocean, and the first entries wearing a Fairvale prefix didn’t debut at IDW until 1998.

One of the main challenges for the sale was its location, not its achievements, nor the potential of its cattle. Tasmania is an island state of Australia, and getting big cows safely across Bass Straight in stock trucks remains one of the biggest hurdles for buyers.

Yet, of the 275-head marketed that day, more than 170 were bought by Victorian buyers, who faced up to that challenge. The sale animals were averaging around 45 litres, and during transit they didn’t see a dairy, water or feed for (on average 26 hours). They were all also travelling into hotter Victorian summer weather. All landed safely.

Picture perfect preview

In the perfect preview to the sale the week before, a 12-year-old Fairvale bred and sold as a 2.5-year-old, became Australia’s first cow to classify EX97-5E.

Fairvale Morty Lady 51 EX97-5E

Fairvale Morty Lady 51 EX97-5E (owned by Will and Lisa McKay and Lindsay and Sandra Thompson) was already a household name in Australia. She is the former IDW two-time Grand Champion at IDW [2011 and 2014].

This week, she added Supreme Champion of the Victoria & South-Eastern South Australia On-Farm competition (a nationwide competition which judges cows on-farm) to her treasure trove of achievements. The competition includes almost 2500 cows across the country – and it’s worth noting that Lady’s state includes 51% of those entries.

Top price

The top price at Fairvale’s Farewell was $24,000, and it was paid for a rising five-year-old, Fairvale AJ Nola 28 EX92, whose recent classification included an EX95 mammary. She completed three generations of EX and was purchased by the double Master Breeder herd of Calthorpe Holsteins, run by the Perkins family, at Latrobe, in Tasmania.

The next best price of $16,000 also stayed in Tasmania when Fairvale Dempsey Butter 274, a VG88 second-lactation cow which completed 12 generations of EX and VG sold to Green Glory Holsteins, at Broadmarsh, Tasmania.

Before their sale, Ross and Leanne were milking 450 cows through a 30-a-side swingover dairy with Automatic Cup Removers, and shipping more than four million litres a year off their 1000-acre undulating property, where the cows walk significant distances to pasture every day. The whole herd was averaging just over 39 litres, with the fresh sale animals averaging around 45 litres.

Third high-seller was Fairvale Bradnick Josie 118, VG85-2YRS – a daughter of the EX94 2017 winning aged cow at IDW – Baxter Josie 64 EX94.  She sold at $12,500 to Bluechip Genetics and Fairvale Holsteins. This same buying partnership paid $9000 for Fairvale Goldchip Josie 117, VG87 on 1st lact.

Fourth sale high at $12,000 was Fairvale Dazzler Repa 57 EX 91-2E. She sold to K & H Jones of Foster, Vic.

At $10,000 was Fairvale Goldchip Butter 287, VG86-2YRS. She sold to Elm Banks Holsteins, Victoria. Also, at $10,000 was Fairvale Fever Repa 56 EX, who sold to T & J Clark, of Nerrena, Victoria.

Other noted sales included Fairvale Goldchip Butter 291, VG86-2YRS at $9500 to Greg & Michelle Anderson, Victoria. Fairvale Dempsey Melody 775 VG made $9500 to C & F Bills of Drouin, Victoria who selected many lots throughout the sale. Also at $9500 was the second last lot in the sale, Fairvale Damion Melody 747 VG88. She sold to Tony & Kathy Hogan, Victoria. Fairvale Damion Bonnie 224 sold for $9000 to R & J Gordon of Victoria.

Another volume buyer at 24-head included Garry and Bev Carpenter, at South Riana, Tasmania.

Are Elite Dairy Genetics Still In Demand?

There are sales every week where dairy cattle are bought and sold for milk production purposes.  Not often anymore are there public auctions where only very elite genetically rated dairy animals are offered for sale. Bovines-on-the-Goal-Line, held on September 12th, hosted by Ri-Val-Re Genetics LLC, Michigan and Faria Brothers Dairy, Texas, with the management assistance of The Cattle Exchange, was truly a trendsetting sale where fifty-four genetically elite Holsteins and Jerseys were sold. It was a very successful online sale held in a lounge at the University of Michigan overlooking the football stadium.

To make our readers aware of the facts The Bullvine decided to do a deeper dive into the facts and figures.

Organizers Dedicated to Breed Advancement

“It only takes a spark to get a fire going”. Well in the case of Bovines-on-the-Goal-Line there were two sparks. Jerry Jorgensen and Jason Faria. With the encouragement of family and friends, they put together a sale of only top of the line Holstein and Jersey heifers. Knowing that both the Holstein and Jersey breeds are moving to moderately sized animals with high genetic ability beyond just production and functional type, Jerry and Jason selected animals that also had high genetic indexes for PL, LIV, DPR, SCS and CFP.

What Constitutes Elite?

Elite can have many definitions. For dairy cattle, in the past, it has meant high production, high classification or show winners. But in 2017 it equates to animals that have high genetic indexes for all of production, type, pedigree, fertility, longevity, and health (including disease resistance) traits.

An analysis of the pedigrees for the forty-one Holsteins and fifteen Jerseys cataloged in the Bovines-on-the-Goal-Line sale shows the following averages:

Holsteins:   TPI 2791,   CM$ 937,   CFP 152,   PL 7.9,   LIV 2.3,   DPR 2.3,   SCS 2.82

Jerseys:         JPI 209,     CM$ 718,   CFP 123,   PL 7.3,   LIV 1.5,   DPR 0.4,   SCS 2.84

By comparison and to assist readers to know how truly elite these heifers are, listed below are the top CM$ (Cheese Merit) proven sires, top cow and heifers in the sale.

Table 1 Cheese Merit Indexes (CM$) for Top Holsteins and Jerseys *

  Top Proven Sire Top Milking Cow Top Two Heifers** All Heifers (avg)**
Holstein 909 970          1035 / 1032 937
Jersey 685 672            781 / 760 718

* Indexes and information as published by CDCB – August 2017
** As per the Bovines-on-the-Goal-Line catalog

Outstanding Sale Average

The fifty-four animals sold averaged just thirty-eight dollars short of $30,000 at $29,962. Holsteins (39x) averaged $28,653 and Jerseys (15x) averaged $33,367.

The vast majority of the heifers sold were born in 2017, with some as young as two months. Some consignments were old enough to start on an IVF program.  Fifty-seven percent (57%) of the animals cataloged came from the Ri-Val-Re and Faria breeding programs with multiple consignments from Genosource, Peak and Pine Tree. In total, there were ten consigners. Fifty-four percent (54%) of the consignments were sold via the online bidding app, www.cowbuyer.com.

Five Take-Home Messages

Here is how The Bullvine sees the sale results:

  1. AI organizations see the need to have elite females in their programs for producing bulls, selling embryos and for producing females that will themselves become bull dams;
  2. AI organizations are prepared to pay high prices in order to get the top females;
  3. Breeders with elite females can ask high prices for animals in the top 0.5% of the breed;
  4. Innovative breeders joining forces can bring attention and returns to their breeding programs;
  5. Genomic indexes are the first step to identifying elite animals. The second step is a sound and healthy animal.

The Bullvine Bottom Line

The dairy cattle breeding industry has adopted social media as the communication and commerce vehicle of choice. Bovines-on-the-Goal-Line helped to move the marketing of top dairy cattle forward by providing a successful way for breeders to sell their very best animals in the future.

While the top heifer went for $25,000, buyers described the rest of the stud heifers as cheap.

The top-priced heifer, Lightning Ridge CMD Solomobn Bamba, offered by Declan Patten and Callum Moscript, sold for $25,000 to an undisclosed Portuguese buyer who bid via online site Live Bidding.

Another heifer, Lightning Ridge CMD Doorman Maika, sold by the same vendors, achieved the second highest price at $19,000 and was bought by Les and Louise Calder, of Meeniyan.

Ms Calder said they were pleased with the heifer they bought, but said most of the other heifers at the sale “seemed cheap”.

She said Murray Goulburn’s announcement wouldn’t have helped the sale, but said the industry was already fairly depressed.

“It was really flat today, with the exception of the (top two lots),” Ms Calder said

The average of the sale was $4412, and without the two top-priced heifers this average dropped to about $3400.

Leigh Jennings, of Maffra, picked up two heifers at the sale for $2400 and $2800 and said there were some “great prices” for buyers.

He said last week commercial cows were being sold for about $1950 at the Warragul saleyard. “That’s a good price, and today stud cattle were selling for the same amount,” he said.

Wendy Orchard, in partnership with her son-in-law Mark Boardman, of Yarragon, bought Lightning Ridge Make You Dance from vendors Mr Pattern and Brad Salmon for $6000.

Mr Boardman said there were “bargains galore” at the sale.

He said commercial and stud cattle he bought last month were much dearer in comparison with today’s sale.

He said the Murray Goulburn price announcement weighed on the sale.

“While it doesn’t affect me personally because I don’t supply them, it affects the confidence of the industry because they are still a major player,” he said.
