Pineyvale Holsteins Complete Dispersal

Pineyvale Holsteins, one of the great Holstein breeding establishments dispersed on Saturday, December 8, 2012 and it was a sale to remember.  A massive crowd estimated over 400 came out on a spring like day to take home a piece of history.  The herd was just re-classified 5 days earlier with an official BAA of 110.7%.  Cattle were purchased by thirteen different states!

David Post welcomed the crowd and introduced his family at the start of the sale, a truly emotional day for many in attendance.  The main barn at Pineyvale had never missed a milking since 1888 until Hurricane Sandy roared into the east coast.  David thanked Don and Joanne Hosking who provided the facilities for the sale and all those who had assisted them over the years.  The sale started off with lot 51, a VG-86 Jeeves daughter; that traces back to the first Purebred Holstein they ever purchased from none other than, the Dean of Pedigrees, Horace Backus!  David thanked Horace for all his years of service to his family and the industry and the sale took off!  Lot 51 sold for $5,000.00 and by the end of the day, 105 full lots averaged $3,477.00 for a gross of $372,275.00

The sale topper, Lot 1, was purchased by John Currie and family of Tully, NY for $15,500.00.  Newly crowned EX-92, this red Advent daughter looked smashing and was backed by a 2E-92 Outside dam & 4E-94 grdam and the same family as the great Curr-Vale Goldwyn Delicious (EX-91-DOM) who is making her mark on the industry!  The Kelsey family from Canastota, NY took home her RC Alchemy daughter born 9/8/2012 for $7,700.00!

Second high seller at $11,200.00, lot 24, was a tremendous EX-94 Drake daughter due in March to Dempsey.  Duane Conant was in attendance and made the purchase for Conant Acres and Mike Garrow.  A proven show winner that looks like she still has points coming!

Third high of the sale was lot 39, selling for $10,800.00 to Bergen Farm of Odessa, NY.  Sired by Shampoo and recently scored VG-87, she hails from the 2E-92 Boss Iron Gretel cow with sons in AI & 8 VG daughters to date!  She sold with a very solid GTPI and on service to Supersire.

Two more individuals sold for $10,000.00 or higher, lot 30 to Doug Lemke, a barn favorite sired by Alexander and just scored VG-88!  Dam is 3E-95 Outside Helen with 40,000M 1679F!  An awesome young cow with a tremendous future!  Lot 77 sold for $10,200.00 to Carpsdale Farm in, VT.  Recently scored EX-90, this Boss Iron daughter was backed by 7 generations of VG or EX dams and caught everyone’s eye!

The sale was managed by The Cattle Exchange, Dave Rama handled the gavel, Horace Backus mastered pedigrees, Don Welk, Les Terpstra, Patsy Gifford, Nick Raggi and Russ George handled the ring and phone bids from the extremely large crowd.  Don and Joanne Hosking were gracious hosts assisting every step of the way!

A lesson to take away from this tremendous herd sale:  Great pedigrees and maternal lines with solid type are here to stay.  It was a refreshing sale with bidding at a frenzied level for the best the breed has to offer!  Congrats to Dave and Carolyn, Allen and Carolee and all the others that came out to support these families and cattle bred for eye appeal!
