The Genesee-Hill Holstein Complete Dispersal held on April 26, 2012 in Avon, NY averaged $2,255.00 on 231 head, from the oldest cow to the youngest calf! Topping the sale at $14,500.00 was lot 688 a fancy March 1, 2012 Goldwyn dtr. from an EX-92 Apen that was Res. All-NY Jr. 3yr old 2010 & grdam is 2E-93. This lovely calf sold to Mulligan Farms.
Attendees were treated to a scrumptious breakfast sponsored by Semex USA and many took time to review the tremendous facility the Mulligans own. The sale was managed by The Cattle Exchange of Delhi, NY. Dave Rama & Horace Backus worked from the auction box while Don Welk, Steve Pheasant, Dave Bitler & Les Terpstra worked the ring. The Genesee- Hill herd was a partnership between Jeff & Lesa Mulligan & Larry & Beanie Hill, with the cattle housed at Mulligans. The cattle were dispersed as Mulligan Farms facilities were overloaded with cattle. Congratulations to the Mulligans and Hills for breeding such a tremendous herd!
