SENECA – Two hundred people were in attendance Oct. 27 at the Seneca FFA’s sale barn on the school’s land lab as they participated in the Seneca FFA’s 56th annual Club Calf Sale. The crowd included people from four states.

Special guests in the crowd included Richard Dunn, former adviser.

The 32 heifers and steers sold for an average of $1,250. The top-selling calf was consigned by Randy and Kathy Faber of Sublette and was purchased by David Fowler of Kingston.

FFA members are responsible for locating cattle, creating the sale catalog, setting up the sale barn, disassembling the arena and hosting the concession stand. FFA Alumni members assist by clerking the sale.

Among the members working the sale was chairman Brandon Pasdertz.

“Everything went very well,” Pasdertz said. “We had some quality calves and they went for reasonable prices. All the buyers were very happy. All in all, it was a great day.”

Next year’s sale is slated for Oct. 26.
