Mid-Atlantic Fall Jersey Classic Sale Final

A warm sunny day that laughed in the face of the fall season being “official” was the setting for the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Fall Jersey Classic Sale, hosted by Craig Rhein and family in Pine Grove, Pa. A total of 490 head crossed the sale ring, all ages of heifers, and one that calved the night before the sale. An average of $1179 was the final tally.

Huffard Jersey Farms, Crockett, Va., was the final buyer in a spirited bidding battle for Lot 240, JX RFF Vandrell Twinkie {3}, the high seller of the sale. Consigned by Richardson Family Farm, Woodstock, Vt., this JX Faria Brothers Vandrell {2}-ET daughter sold for $5,100. A February 2016 heifer, she has a traditional JPI of 182 and is due in January to sexed JX Crescent Volcano Grant {6}.

Several volume buyers supported the sale, including Sara Halliburton, Tenn., with 50 head; Piazzo Dairy, Buckeye, Ariz., with 54 head; Adrie Vanderjagt, Tx., with 61 head; and Jeff Adams, Wash., with 80 head; and Creek Bottom Farm, Pa., with 114 head. Over 20 buyers from 13 different states distributed New England and Mid-Atlantic region genetics into their herds.
