Coby Classic XVI Show Calf Sale
October 19, 2013 | 3 pm | Cobleskill Fairgrounds
Welcome producers and beef industry supporters!
SUNY Cobleskill’s American Animal Producer Club’s 16th Annual Coby Classic Sale will be held Saturday, October 19, 2013, at 3 pm at the Cobleskill Fairgrounds. This year we are proud to announce that Jenn Schwab will serve as our sale chairman with Jillian Salzmann as co-chair. These students along with all of the other AAPC club members who help with this initiative are provided a chance to gain real world experience by organizing and facilitating this beef sale.
We are hoping for a large turnout this year as we expand our advertising options even with the rough economic times. Our hope is and has always been to get the best possible price for the sale of your animal. We, however, cannot have a sale without your support. As we improve the sale every year, we hope you will continue to support us by considering our invitation to consign one of your quality show animals. This year, our sale chairs have worked diligently to find top quality show cattle from several known breeders across the region. We look forward to working with you, whether you’re a new or returning consignor.
