MORRISVILLE, NY—Morrisville State’s annual Autumn Review Sale set a record with the highest numbers in the 32-year history of the event.

The dairy cattle sale focuses on Holsteins ranging in age from small calves to up to five- and six-year old animals.

The sale grossed a total of $279,640 with 86 live lots sold, two embryo lots, and one “Pick of the Herd” consignment. The live lots ranged from 3-months to 4-year-old cows with one two-week-old half lot. The average per live lot was $3,119 which is a record for the sale and reflective of the quality of the animals gathered by the students, according to Dr. Steve Mooney, co-advisor of the sale and assistant professor of dairy science at MSC. The high lot, $6,000, was consigned by Morrisville State animal science—dairy student, Erik Shelmidine, of Adams. → Read more
