Ohio Holstein Summer Sale Had Great Day for a Sale

By Barb Lumley
A beautiful day in Ohio found some farmers filling silos and working in the fields, however Holstein breeders took time out to gather on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds, Wooster, Ohio, for the Ohio Holstein Summer Sale and to bid on the outstanding group of registered Holstein consignments presented there. When auctioneer Steve Andrews dropped the gavel on the last animal, a total of 58 full lots had sold for an average of $2530.
The top price paid was $6800 for Lot # 1 in the catalog, MS Starmark Royalty-Red-ET, a two year old sired by KHW Kite Advent-Red and consigned by Starmark Farms, Wooster, Ohio. This fancy Red and White carried a great pedigree going back to Stelbro Renita Ranger-Red, had calved in June, and was bred back to Sandy-Valley Colt P-Red-TW. She was purchased by Patrick Twining, Wellington, Ohio.
Second high seller was Lot # 15, Pine-Tree Ohio Colt 5111-ET, a fall calf sired by Sandy Valley Colt P-Red-TW. She was polled, had contract interest, and sold for $6300 to Dave Franzer and Jacque Meyer, Coldwater, Ohio.
The volume buyer in the sale was Ted Schmitmeyer, Versailles, Ohio, who purchased four consignments for a total of $15,000. Cattle sold not only in Ohio, but also to Pennsylvania and Indiana. Steve Andrews, Wooster, Ohio, was the auctioneer, with Ted Renner, Dalton, Ohio, reading the pedigrees. Working the ring was Russell Kiko, Ken Janes, Don Alexander, and Kenneth Brown. Steven Jordan headed up the barn crew.
