Fifth Annual Dairy Consignment Sale and Silent Auction
Alfred State College’s CAL (Collegiate Agricultural Leaders) Club recently hosted its fifth annual dairy consignment sale and silent auction in the livestock pavilion at the college farm. ASC agriculture alumni and registered dairy breeders from across New York State consigned calves and heifers to support this major fund-raising event for CAL Club. Alfred State students planned and organized the sale. In addition to purchasing an animal, visitors could also see a cow get a bath or a haircut! In addition to the cow sale, the CAL Club sponsored a silent auction with baskets of merchandise donated by many local merchants and agribusiness sponsors throughout Western New York. Included were maple syrup and other food items, tools, farm supplies, and gift certificates. Proceeds were applied to an educational CAL Club trip later this spring, to the Agriculture and Veterinary Technology Department work trip for students to Haiti, and to two new scholarships being designed for CAL Club members or alums.
