This was the 29th Anniversary sale for Macedon Farms and it was a well attended event, with many repeat buyers as well as many long time friends attending. Of special interest was the offering from the Macedon Pride Lady family, a highly proven female line. The Lot 1 cow was from this family and in fact was a flush sister to the exciting herd sire Macedon True Commitment. The progeny of this Macedon bred herd sire was well received as the top selling bull was a son of his.
