White Face Classic Sale

Hello fellow Hereford Breeders and enthusiasts

We hope that calving 2019 is going well.

The East-Central Ontario Hereford Zone will once again be managing the White Face Classic sale on May 11, 2019 at the Lindsay Fairgrounds. This will be the 9th annual sale and it has become one that is eagerly anticipated by 4-H members looking for their 4-H projects and farmers looking to add new genetics to their herds.

We are extending an invitation to all Hereford breeders and to anyone who has straight-bred Herefords or Hereford influenced animals to consider consigning an animal(s) to this sale.   We ask that Hereford influenced animals be at least 50% Hereford, and that either their sire or dam are purebred Hereford, but not necessarily registered.  The cattle do not need to be halter broke, as we do have pens available. If you wish to consign to the sale, please let one of the committee members know as soon as possible and have the animal(s) footnotes & pedigree, if available, sent in by March 11, 2019.   We also ask for $100/lot be included with the animal information.  This amount will be deducted from the commission upon the sale of the animal.  This money will not be refunded if the animal is not brought to the sale, however substitutions are allowed.

We will be promoting the White Face Classic sale at the East Central Farm Show, Lindsay ON, on March 6 & 7, 2019 as well as in various farming publications.   Our goal is to have sale catalogues available on the OHA website and to have them available at the OHA AGM, being held in Peterborough on April 5 & 6, 2019.  Again this year, for $25/item, you can have business card size ad or include a black & white photo of your consignment(s) included in the catalogue. The sale catalogues will be mailed to the OHA members, buyers and consignors from previous years.

Please contact anyone on the White Face Classic sale committee if you have any questions or to consign an animal.

Sincerely,

White Face Classic Sales committee
