Ankony Farms Sale Report, September, 27th, 2018, Clarkesville, GA

On a beautiful Autumn day, an overflow crowd gathered at the historic and scenic Ankony Farms, Clarkesville, GA. As always, Virgil Lovell and crew offered the finest in hospitality, facilities, and cattle. The sale grossed $2,609,250 on 84 lots for an average of $31,063 – a record in the state of Georgia. Visitors remarked about the depth of the offering. Many stated that it was one of the finest offerings of Angus cattle that they had ever witnessed.

The panelists discussed how their commercial bull customers wanted all of the traits that $Profit delivers. They also spoke about some of the short comings of $Beef and its terminal emphasis.
