Re: TULIP SALE 2014


Your short summary is very accurate. Like for like trade was much lower than at BW Carlisle the previous week.

For those chasing genomics there were several calves over 2300 GTPI that did not hurt the pocket too much.

Having sworn that I was not going to bid on anything and not even having signed up for a bidding number, I found I didn't manage to sit on my hands all night emoticon

Even those 2400 -2499 GTPI were not expensive ... it was only those above 2500 that seemend to get the audience excited.

The beautiful red calf by Big Apple out of Zeedieker Advent Roseanne, the RW Senior and Grand Champion the following day, made just 2,800. If one was after a show calf the amusingly named "FDH Boobs" a Bradnick out of the Barbies was also 2,800.

PS I've put up some photos video clips of the Championship (very dramatic lighting and music)on our facebook page - click below

Re: TULIP SALE 2014


Where was this sale at? I think everything is high around
my area. Bull calves are going for over 400 a week old.
Preg heifers that I've seen are all over 3000. But I have noticed that numbers calves that aren't high numbers aren't as high as a few years ago.

Re:


Big drop coming. Milk prices headed south. I saw somewhere $12 milk projected. Not sure I believe that just yet

Re: TULIP SALE 2014


The Tulip Sale was held at Zwolle in the Netherlands.

Unfortunately, PAD, you should believe that milk prices will crash unless the US market is somehow insulated from world prices. It has already crashed across Europe. The acute trigger (or excuse) appears to have been the Russian import ban, although world markets were easing before this. In the UK some milk contracts have dropped over 30% already from 30ppl to 21ppl, and some on short term contracts supplying milk to brokers have suddenly found themselves in dire circumstances without a milk buyer.

Re:


I do think the US domestic market is good, its the export market that has collapsed, at a time when we are running 4% year over year gains in milk production. We need to slaughter a minimum of 100,000 additional cows to begin to balance the market, if not closer to 250,000 to see good prices.
