Showstopper II

A Sale Report  by
Keith Smith

If you were looking for some fine goats to add to your herd you should have been in Shreveport, LA, on Saturday, July 28, 2001!
Ryals Rocking R, Benz Farms Boers, And Erath General Genetic Services offered some awesome animals to a very enthusiastic crowd.
Previewing the Showstopper2 offerings The arrangement of the preview pens was logical and the consignors were very helpful. Any question we had concerning an animal of interest were very professionally and courteously answered.
 Anticipation was the mood of the day as the crowd waited for the 1:00 p.m. start of the sale.
The sale catalog listed several big name animals with great show records - not something you see at most sales.
Rocking R's M116 was the Grand Champion at Houston in 2001, EGGS  Marks the Spot M500 was Reserve. The owners of these animals made a pact that day in the ring... "I'll put mine in the sale if you'll offer yours".

Another example of the great animals offered was BNZ M225, a 6 time grand champion winner.

A spokesman from each of the consigning families presented introductions and delivered welcome messages.
152 hopeful bidders registered for the sale. They came from Canada, Mexico, and 13 of the United States.
As the bidding proceeded it became obvious that this was a group of buyers, not lookers.
When the gavel fell for the final time the gross sale amount was $299,375.00. That's an average of $1,847.99 per animal offered - including percentages! The percentages averaged near $1,000.00 each with the top doe fetching $1,400.00. Robert Hughes purchased both of the high selling does - the top one going on his trailer for $8,950.00.
The two high selling bucks are on their way to Mexico.
The consignors invite you to attend their 2002 sale to be held in the same air conditioned arena next year.
