Fall Sales are approaching


Cataloging for the Southeast Jersey Invitational (formerly Dixie Invitational) will begin on THURSDAY, August 10. Consignments, especially any for the tie-up portion, must be turned in promptly.
In this year’s sale, we will be having a tie-up portion featuring approximately 30 head of high quality show prospects and genomic animals. The other portion of the sale will be commercial cattle that will be housed as we have done in the past. Milk cows will be in one group and the heifers divided and housed by age and pregnancy status. Thank you to Her-Man Jerseys and Sunny Day Farm for hosting the sale.

As manager of the sale, JMS wishes to invite you to participate in this volume production sale. The deadline for consignments to the Mid-Atlantic Fall Jersey Classic sale is August 16. The New York and New England area sales were held in the spring only for the 2017 sale season. This early fall sale will create a place to market quality Jersey heifers from and within the eastern United States. Thank you to the Craig Rhein Family for hosting this sale.
