Brown Swiss sale consignments invited

FREDERICK, Md. -- The 40th anniversary edition of the Mid Atlantic Brown Swiss Calf Sale will be held on Saturday, April 19, here at the Frederick Fairgrounds, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Consignment are being welcomed .

This sale has gained quite a track record for calves sold. Many have developed into National Bellringers, All-Americans, and profitable additions to many herds. Now is your chance to consign to this sale; check those calf pens and pedigrees and see what you can offer.

This sale has been a great place to buy a 4-H project and has provided some top-pedigreed calves for the merchandising and investment buyer.

Sale organizers are looking for a strong group of calves that combine a unique blend of production and sound type. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a consignment to this great sale. Something new for this year is that the sale committee will be accepting spring yearling-age heifers; so think March 2013 through March 2014.

If you are interested in consigning a calf, or wish additional information about the sale, please contact Cindy Warner at 301-639-6887; Dennis Smith at 301-845-6894; Scott Hood at 301-473-5052; or Harold Long at 301-898-4237. Call today with your consignment!!

Please don’t delay. The sale committee would like to have information and pedigrees as soon as possible to advertise and compile the catalog. Remember to tell new 4-Her’s, other breeders in your area about the quality and success of this sale; there is always something for everyone. Now is the time to get into the Brown Swiss business as their popularity continues to grow stronger each year.
