Sale

  • High Rocky-Mountain average
    Mascalese, the Italian Nr.1 bull, has become very popular worldwide in a short period of time. Also in the western part of Canada, where a first choice Mascalese heifer calf out of Ms Chassity Cash VG-87 attracted a great top price of C$80,000. Cash, owned by Morsan Farms, is the sought-after Goldwyn daughter of Regancrest Chassity, who was elected HI’s “Global Cow of the Year” in 2011. That great bid was realized at the 2012 edition of the RockyMountain Sale, where 118 lots reached an outstanding average of C$9776. Another top price was paid for Ladinodale Aretha-Red, a red and polled Destry daughter with high genomics. For C$66,000 she went to RockyMountain Holsteins. And then there was the little Shamrock calf with 3157 gLPI from Fleury-Gen Baxter Lisa, that went to Butler, Elite Dairy, Johnson & Widholm for C$50,000. Also the promising Goldwyn daughter and show heifer Hoese Goldwyn Beauty attracted lots of interest. It was Morsan who finally bought her for C$35,500. (source:holsteininternational.com)
