It was a beautiful morning in Minnesota for the 2014 Minnesota Fall Harvest Sale, but that didn't stop buyers and bidders from filling the bleachers at the McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Minn. The sale was held on Saturday, November 22, 2014. At the sale 105 lots were auctioned off and included three half lots. The sale averaged $2,838 on the 105 lots.
The 2014 Fall Harvest Sale also featured an online/on site embryo auction. Ten lots sold on the auction and averaged $340 per embryo. The high selling embryo lot was a package of three #1 embryos from Powerball-P x Ms Apples Annessa-Red-ET. This package was consigned by Mike Welu, Milroy, MN and purchased by Chad Kieffer.
The high selling consignment of the day was lot 9, Stockhaven Gold Alice. This lot was consigned by Dana Johnson and Brad Stockman of Pelican Rapids, Minn and was purchased by Al-Shar Holsteins, Groton, SD. The second high seller was lot 31, DO-N-JOY Advent Luxury-ET. This lot was consigned by Stranshome, Owatanna, Minn. and was purchased by Matt Timmer, Ellsworth, Minn.
