CNY Feeder Calf Pool – Auction Oct 13

Over 110 calves were graded last week, sorted in to similar lots by sex, weight and breed. The preconditioned and weaned calves will be auctioned Oct 13, but remain on farm until picked up at a central location on Nov 4. This sale is meant to reduce stress of weaning, commingling and transport providing an animal that is low risk for respiratory disease. Sale lots and additional information can be found at https://blogs.cornell.edu/beefcattle/eventsprograms/ny-feeder-calf-pool-marketing-program/ under CNY Fall Feeder 2017 Feeder Calf Sale.
