You are right about the quality in "The Fever" sale. There are some excellent females, flushes and embryos in this sale. The exchange rate is not going to help Americans much now as the Canadian dollar and the US dollar have been almost at par for the past few days. A few days ago, The canadian dollar was actually at a 1% premium. After the Canadian $ being worth about $.55 to the US $ about four years ago, I never thought we would ever see it at par again. Some are saying that the Canadian $ may go as high as 5-10 % above the US $ by year end, but I will believe that when I see it.
The Fever sale will be broadcast live on liveauctions.tv so if anyone is interested in bidding on any cattle themselves they should register early. I have offered to keep any US purchases free of charge until late November or early December and will deliver them to a mid west location at my cost to do it ( my fuel, vet costs, etc). There will definitely be some cattle in this sale that will be very competitive in US shows and there are also some outcross genetics offered.
The sale catalogue is also on my website www.horseshoecreekfarms.com.
If you want any info. on any lots, I would be more than pleased to help.
