John Wuethrich's sale of Registered Holsteins last Saturday was a great success and is another demonstration to convince farmers that it pays to buy and raise good cattle. A number of buyers from outside the county attended the sale and bought cattle. $700 was paid for one cown, while several others sold for five and six hundred dollars per head. The entire herd of 51 head, including a number of small calves and several yearlings, averaged over $300 per head. This is the highest average gotten at any pure bred sale in the state of Wisconsin for eight months. The entire sale totaled $17,000.
A great deal of credit is due to Mr. Krause of Thorp, who handled the pedigrees in a very explicit way, and to Auctioneer C.A. Olson of this city, who cried the sale in a manner that pleased everyone. Cook of Unity took bids on the sidelines. John is well pleased with the results of his sale and will plan on having another sale of purebred Holsteins another winter.
