Heifer Auction – Brethren Disaster Relief Auction

I went to Lebanon Fairgrounds early yesterday to capture some pictures of the heifer auction which started at 11:00 a.m.

Heifer Auction (1)As I approached the last pole barn, it was obvious that the heifer auction had begun.

Heifer Auction (2)Some people were still getting auction numbers.

Heifer Auction (4)Heifers were being prepared for auction.

Heifer Auction (5)   I watched as several heifers (many pregnant with their first calf) were sold.

Heifer Auction (7)These young heifers have no idea that the profit from their sale to a new dairy barn will benefit those who have faced disaster (flood, fire, wind, etc.).

Heifer Auction (12)    I understand from https://www.facebook.com/rhoda.reist?fref=ts that the highest sale for one heifer was $3,300.

Look for me in the front row of the main auction today – or walking around with my camera pointed at things or people of interest. I told the other photographer (John) that we must look like snipers with our cameras. 🙂

  1. The gentleman in the wheelchair is Gene Knicely. He lives behind us here at the Bridgewater, Brethren Village Retirement Center. He was a pastor and also sang in the Rockingham Male Chorus for years. They go to Florida during the winter. Was surprise to see him there and then maybe not.

      • Thank you, I will give Gene a copy of the picture Monday if he is there. If not I will take it to his house. Maybe I will get to meet you some day. Blessings to all, Fonda
