Chickadee Dispersal Sale

Kajal Devani and I had the honour of attending this dispersal sale at the Innisfail Auction Mart on October 29. The sale brought a great number of buyers from the immediate community all the way through the United States. The turnout was tremendous, and all the animals were greatly appreciated by fellow breeders.

Leading off the sale was Red YY Dsgn King 522R. The crowd immediately showed their support for Chickadee, with the bull selling for $8,500 to Double Bar D. The next feature bull lot of Red Ter-Ron Wallace 142W brought another wave of support selling for $8,500 as well to Lauron. This bull was the high seller this past March at Ter-Ron’s bull sale, and many of the bred heifers in the sale carried his service.

With a herd mostly under 5 years old, this sale offered a great selection of red and black Angus genetics. 112 live lots grossed $490,350. The high selling cow was $10,000 with the average being $4,378.

Kajal and I are honoured to work with such an outstanding community of breeders. We’d really like the thank Jim and Laurel King & family of Chickadee Farms for extending the invitation to attend their dispersal sale.
