All roads lead to Webberville, Michigan, or at least they did yesterday. The Ri-Val-Re Select Sale achieved an outstanding average of $25,910 on 68 lots. Starting on Friday night the Jorgensen family, led by Jerry, had great food and live music to entertain the many friends and breeders in attendance. All agreed that the Jorgensen’s hosted an outstanding event.
Topping the sale was Ri-Val-Re Num Uno Nady, the #6 GTPI Heifer in the breed. With a gTPI of +2645, gLPI of +3438 and an outstanding NM$ of 978, Nady numbers well on both sides of the border. This correct, dairy black calf sold for $280,000.
The 2nd highest seller was Bomaz Numero Uno 5904 *PC *TL *TD. With an outstanding polled pedigree 5904 will make future polled progeny that are over +2500 gTPI. No wonder she commanded an outstanding price of $215,000.
In Jerry’s typical outside the box thinking, the Jorgensen’s also offered some great opportunities. Not only could you get in on some top polled, gTPI and R&W animals, but they also sold two packages (animals and their embryos) that would give their purchasers a great chance to hit the ground running. The top package was Lot 1 RI-VAL-RE BOOKEM ROSEY P!ET *RC *PO who sold with 30 guaranteed pregnancies for $315,000 . The 2nd package was Mapelwood Epic Giggle-Red the high index Epic from the variant red daughter from MORSAN MANOMAN FOOLS GOLD RED-VG-2yr and 8th Jr 2Yr Old R&W Royal Winter Fair 2012. Selling with Giggle was a guaranteed 40 pregnancies from eight different sires. This package sold for $270,000.
