At the Junior Sale Friday night, the Grand Champion market goat, owned
by Chelsea Heersink of Alamossa, CO, was sold for $6,000!!!! The Reserve
Grand winner, her brother Derek, sold his for $4,000!! I believe that
these are record highs for goat sales at this show... only the second
I am also thrilled because these two goats beat out the Texas
competition (please don't take offense, you all have been at it longer
than us!). Their mother, Bunny Heersink, is the person responsible for
getting me started in Boer goats, and my foundation goats are directly
related to the Grand winner. We are trying to get people up here to take
us seriously, and I think it is beginning to happen.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement!
