Weekly Show and Sale Recap– 5/5/2012


  • Ocean-View Dispersal Averages $2,742
    May 2, 2012 brought the end of an era in the registered Holstein circle as the long-standing and well known herd of Ocean View was dispersed in Windsor, CA.  Selling over 600 head in one day was no easy task, Dave Rama and Gary Estes shared the auctioneering duties while Horace Backus read pedigrees.  At the end of the day, the sale averaged $2,742.
    Generations and generations of well thought out breeding decisions stood behind every animal that went through the ring.  Topping the sale at $15,000 was Lot 2759- Ocean-View Gold Sheen.  She is a VG-87 point Goldwyn from Ocean-View Outside Sheen EX-91 then the famous Lindy Sheen herself.  Second high seller was Lot 2785, Ocean-View Gold Roxette at $14,250.  Roxette is a 86 point Goldwyn daughter of Ocean-View Roy Roxann EX-91, and sold due in July to Aftershock.  Wrapping up the top three was Lot 2447, Ocean-View Allen Zmora at $13,500.  She is a Canyon-Breeze Allen daughter of another famous Ocean-View cow, Mandel Zandra EX-95.
    Marvin Nunes worked hard at making Ocean-View a prominent prefix in the Holstein breed for many years.  While being very successful in the show ring, especially with cows like Ocean-View Lindy Sheen EX-94 who was nominated All-American four times in milking form, this California herd was also known for impressive milk production as nine Ocean-View cows made over 300,000 pounds of lifetime milk.   (
