Beautiful spring weather in Mt. Sterling, Ky., made for a great weekend to host the 15th Annual Bluegrass Gelbvieh Invitational. An outstanding set of top quality females were presented by nine consignors from across the southeast.
Topping the sale was Lot 15/15A, Ms. Highlight 190Y ET and her heifer calf, consigned by Larry P & Sunny D Farms. This two year old, homozygous polled, full sister to GBNR Captain 42X was a crowd favorite. Circle B Gelbvieh outlasted several bidders to own this powerful pair at $6,100.
Next high selling female was the three-in-one package consigned by Gentle G Farm. Ruby Red and her CTR Highlight daughter, Gentle G 44Z, were easy to find. Lot 27 and 27A was a high performance pair that sold split in the ring and was kept together by Green Hills Gelbvieh for $4,000.
Coming in at $3,900 was Lot 20/20A, Gabby 4U2 ET and her Edison daughter. Mark Webster and Zach Thompson landed on this young pair that sold first through the ring.
Gelbvieh Bar None Ranch consigned Lot 26/26A, Freedom's Image ET and her Maverick bull calf. This proven female is a full sister to Freedom's Reflection. Her bull calf by Maverick combines unusual eye appeal and performance. Silver Farms added this pair to their front pasture for $3,700.
Also selling at $3,700 was Lot 17/17A consigned by Green Hills Gelbvieh. Delta 928W and her bull calf was one of several lots purchased by David May.
Following closely at $3,600 was Lot 18/18A, Bar None Ms. Highlight and her Chief Executive bull. This homozygous black, Highlight 066K female will make her new home at Brendy Hill Farm.
