Hill Haven Selection Sale Closes October 11th at 7:00pm ET Text HILLHAVEN to 76278
Welcome to Hill Haven's Online Female Sale. Since 2011 we have held a semi-annual female sale at the farm until last year. 2020 was our first online sale due to our concerns for everyone's health and safety during the pandemic. Although it was not an in person, on farm auction, as much or more effort on our part was put into the selection and presentation of the offerings and happily, many came to our open houses on the lawn and the sale enthusiasm was evident thanks to our many new and repeat customers.
This Fall again, we are inviting you to view our online sale selection and if at all possible, we hope you will once again join us on the lawn for our open houses to see the cattle . These are trying times for all of us as we make our health and wellbeing and that of our family and friends top priority. But Hill Haven has not let that slow us down one bit. Our pursuit of breeding the ultimate maternal, functional, show worthy female is stronger than ever. This year we are delighted to be offering a couple of females from our newest star donor Lily cow family which has us very excited. Everyone however, will still see several offerings from our eternally "number one" cow family - the Sierras, Breathless', Breathtakers' and Breathtakens' whose progeny just keep getting better every year. Of course, our bull, Hill Haven FireStorm, possibly Breathtaker's all time crowning achievement is very well represented in the offerings as sire, grandsire and service sire to almost half of the lots.
We are especially appreciative of our consignors, the Den Haans, the Scotts, Chad Homer, John Dolliver and Shannon Giffen whose animals fit in so well at Hill Haven.
Thank you for your continued interest in our program and sale and we wish everyone a safe, healthy Fall. Please join us for an open house this Sunday from 10a-5p and Monday (Sale Day) from 10a-3p.
