ACTIVITIES

Members of the Iowa Jersey Cattle Club participate in breed functions throughout the year. We gather early in the spring for our annual meeting and the Iowa Spring Extravaganza Sale and then again in the summer for a picnic, which is hosted by a different farm each year.

The Iowa Spring Extravaganza Sale was held on March 5, 2016, at the Fayette County Fairgrounds in West Union. The event auctioned 34 lots for an average of $2,456.62. The high seller, Do-N-Joy Roman Bethany, sold for $4,400 to Dawson and Dakota Sawyer of Marshalltown, IA. She was consigned by Tony Kohls of Arlington, MN. Click here for a report.

Underground Emilys Charm was the high seller, of the 2015 sale, purchased for $8,900 by Landree Fraley, represented by Jason Steinlage, at the halter. She was consigned by Anthony Crothers, left, and his wife, Deb.

Rylie Pflughaupt, Iowa Dairy Priness Alternate, and Brian Lantzky, center, present Zach Eberling with a check for winning the 2015 Pot O'Gold Production Contest with Hei-Bri Region Credit.

The event also featured the third Hawkeye Pot O'Gold Sale just for juniors. If you are a junior, please consider participating in this event. Contact Brian Latzky by calling 563/379-1372 or emailing heibri@iowatelecom.net.
