WINCHESTER — A calf selling for $10,200 was the highlight of an annual sale that raised $243,017.
Quality McCutchen Gayle was consigned by Quality Holsteins and sold to Melistar Holstein & Exemdale Holstein in Vars at the 57th annual Eastern Ontario Spring Select Sale, held on April 4 in Winchester.
The second-highest seller was Stoneden Camden Ramble, consigned by Melville McLean of Gananoque and bought by Matt Calver in Alberta for $7,000.
In total, 73 lots sold for an average of $3,329, the highest-ever average for the sale.
A portion of the money raised will go to nine Eastern Ontario Holstein Clubs.
