Annual heifer sale

LISTOWEL - Plans are underway for the 28th annual heifer sale by the Ontario Men­nonite Relief Sale Inc.

The organizing committee is seeking animal and cash donations. A printed catalogue will be available prior to the sale which will take place at Carson Auction Facilities, Listowel, on Feb. 20. All proceeds of the sale will go to relief and development work of the Mennonite Central Com­mittee (MCC).

“Our goal is to have 100 heifers, ranging in age from calves to springing heifers, and from grades to deep pedigreed purebreds donated to the sale,” said sale committee chairman Clarence Diefenbacher.

Organizers anticipate a good quality selection of ani­mals from some of the indus­try’s leading sires.

“Over the past 28 years, the heifer sales have raised over $3.6-million for MCC through the donation of almost 3,000 heifers,” said Diefenbacher. “Last year’s sale raised over $185,000.” Anyone who contributes is issued a tax receipt.

“This is an excellent op­por­tunity for farmers and agribusi­nes­ses to support MCC pro­grams,” said Diefenbacher.

People interested in donat­ing a heifer or cash can contact Diefenbacher at 519-669-2164 or sale committee secretary John Brenneman at 519-662-1156 or
