The 2013 Blue Halter Sale on April 20, in Bedford, PA was a stunning example of the demand for top-pedigreed Registered Guernseys that lived up to their genetic potential in person. 52 animals averaged $3,893 to set a new all-time record average in this sale series. Walnut Corner Farm of Bismarck, Illinois, dispersed 14 head that averaged $4,007.

The high seller was one of the most anticipated features of the sale – the only daughter of Triple Crown winner Warwick Manor Alymos Selma. This September 2012 calf was long and flat-boned and sired by Rutter Bros Atlas Caden, a son of Showtimes Candy, EX-92. Selma, EX-92 94MS, was the All-American Jr. 3-Year-Old in 2012 after being named Grand Champion at Louisville and Reserve Grand Champion at Harrisburg. She was the Res. All-American Jr. 2-Year-Old in 2011 and boasts a VG-88 dam and 91 and 92-point 3rd and 4th dams. The calf sold for $10,500 to Dr. Joe Piskorowski of Ithaca, New York, and was consigned by Warwick Manor Farm of East Earl, Pennsylvania.

Three fancy calves sired by Millborne Tiller Fayes Fame tied for second-high honors at $7,000. Walnut Corner Farm of Bismarck, Illinois, consigned a June 2012 Fame daughter from Walnut Corner Valiant Sam Kris, EX-91. Kris made over 24,000M and 1,000F and was nominated All-American three times. The next dam, an EX Lewis, was also nominated All-American in milking form. Three more VG dams followed. The calf was purchased out of the farm partnership by Ray and Kay Lindsey of Oakwood, Ohio. They also took home a wide Adacka Jr. 2-Year-Old from Kris for $6,500. Coulee Crest LLC of Cashton, Wisconsin, sent a pair of calves that sold for $7,000. A December 2012 Fame from a VG Challenge sold to John and Marjorie Kuszlyk of Batavia, New York. Her dam, who made 28,000M and 1,400F is a full sister to two-time Madison Junior Champion Chall Jeanie. The granddam of the calf is an EX-90 Skipper with 1,300F and over 100,000M. Foggy River Dairy of Columbus, Wisconsin, took home a September 2012 Fame from an EX-90 Spider that made over 23,000M and 1,100F. The dam was the Res. Int. Champion of the 2012 Wisconsin State Show and is backed by a VG-87 Regis, an EX-91 Billy Jo and another EX dam.

The sale was managed by Pennsylvania GBA with Jim Trotter making selections. Mike Weimer called the sale while David Smith made pedigree announcements. Dave Trotter, Jim Trotter and Blaine Crosser took bids from the huge crowd. Chris Reichard headed a fitting crew that had the lineup looking superb as they entered the ring. John and Patty McMurray clerked the sale.
