A Magic Moment

In March, the Ohio Simmental Association held an online auction to purchase spots in a CJ Brown original painting entitled “A Magic Moment.” The auction was held for one day only on Breedersworld. Simmental breeders had the opportunity to buy spots in the show ring, spots in the crowd, and the judge. At the end of the day they made over $10,000 to go toward the AJSA National Classic. The print was unveiled at the Junior National this past Thursday during the Grand Champion Purebred Heifer drive. The original was then sold on Friday evening at the awards banquet with proceeds benefiting the 2013 Classic to be held in Lincoln, Nebraska. The original print sold for $3,000 to Circle M Farms of Texas. Reproductions can be purchased from CJ Brown Studios.
