A fun, eventful Pot O’Gold sale was held this evening, for Junior Jersey Breeders to buy production based heifers to start or expand their herds at home. Any youth, between the ages of 7 and 20 at the start of this year, were able to buy, entering in the contest. 17% of the gross sales will be set aside in a Pot O’Gold Fund, providing cash awards for the owners of 22 calves that complete the highest records ranked by total product value.
32 head were sold in this year’s sale, for an average of $4606.25.
The top-selling heifer was $12,500.
Best of luck to all the participants who are now entered in this edition of the Pot O’Gold contest!
