Consignments invited for New England Ayrshire Sale

RUTLAND, Vt. The 71st New England Ayrshire Sale will be held on October 19 at the Vermont State Fairgrounds in Rutland.

This sale was established to provide a chance for breeders to be able to market a few animals at the best opportunity.

Over the years buyers have found many quality animals that are very profitable and stay in their herds for a long time, making for many repeat buyers.

The 2012 sale had three animals sell for over $3000 each.

Early consignments include Ayrshire 2-year olds with dams’ records over 20,000 lbs. of milk as immature animals.

The 2013 sale will also have a group of Milking Shorthorns including 4-H’er Calvin Evertington’s animals.

The New England Sale was managed for 60 years by Tom P. Whittaker and now by Lin Huntington.

To offer consignments, request a sale catalogs or for more information, contact sale manager Lin Huntington, 3661 Route 5 N, Newburry, Vt. 05051. Telephone: 802-866-5438; fax 802-866-5429.
