SUNY Cobleskill to Have Dairy Cattle Sale April 2

From SUNY Cobleskill:

SUNY Cobleskill’s 35th Annual Dairy Fashions Sale, the country’s longest-running collegiate dairy cattle club sale, will kick off the College’s Inaugural week Saturday, April 2.

The 35th annual sale comes during SUNY Cobleskill’s Centennial Year, and will be followed by a week of events and activities leading up to the inauguration of Marion A. Terenzio as the college's new president.

The Dairy Fashions Sale, “Where quality cattle are always in style,” is a high-quality cattle consignment sale organized by more than 50 student members of SUNY Cobleskill’s Dairy Cattle Club. 

More than 120 lots, from Holsteins and Jerseys to Shorthorns, will be groomed, prepped and shown off for buyers all around the state and beyond at the hangar at the College’s Equestrian Center.

During the week preceding the sale, students meet consigners and their cattle, house and care for the animals, including hours of washing and expert clipping to bring the animals to “show and sale quality.” 

Says Dairy Cattle Club co-advisor Assistant Professor Kim Tarvis about clipping: “top-line blending like this is a true art.” Students also acclimate the animals to walking in a halter and in the show ring.

The sale will be conducted by auctioneer Dave Rama of The Cattle Exchange. Dr. Lynn Geoffroy, Assistant Professor at SUNY Cobleskill, will provide all pre-sale and day-of-sale veterinary documentation.

The public is invited to a pre-sale viewing of the animals from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, April 1.
