It’s Spring Sale Season… and it’s off to a great start
Last weekend, the Dixie National had several highlights including a One Eyed Jack son setting a new Dixie record at $15,000 for Trennepohl Farms and selling to Fenton Farms, MS. That bull later went on to be Division Champion in the show the next day. The top bred female at $9,000 was a BC Classic heifer bred to GSC All In from J&C Parker Farms, TN and was selected by Clear Water Simmentals, IN. Thatfemale too went on the next day to be Division Champion. An American Pride sired open female from Bramlet/HTP was selected by Triple C Farms, TN for $8,500. Gerdes Show Cattle selected a flush lot out of sale on the female that went on to be Champion Percentage female in the Sunday show. The 57 lots averaged $3,641, we would like to congratulate all of the consignors and buyers for a fantastic Simmental event! A special thank you to the Mississippi Simmental/Simbrah Association for all of their hard work to ensure the Dixie National Show and Sale goes off without a hitch.
