Unborn heifer

Top selling cow at 2nd Edition Celebration Sale in Berwick to be born this summer.

At $70,000 Steven Velthuis reckons the elite calf will be one of the top five selling unborn heifers in Canada this year, if not one of the top two. The price was pretty much what he expected as the heifer is from one of the most sought after cow families in the world right now. The Atlee family Man-o-Man flush was divided into two groups and Velthuis Farms had already sold a pick from the first group at $75,000.

Backed by superior genetics, buying an elite dairy cow sight unseen is not uncommon. Velthuis recently purchased a $150,000 animal in a similar situation.
