17th ANNUAL MAY/JUNE BORN WETHER AUCTION

 August 26, 2017  11:00 a.m.

Dublin, Texas

CHARLIE JONES, AUCTIONEER 

 TX LICENSE #6066

We've had callers that have never attended one of our auctions express some concern about the auction format.   They have heard of wethers selling for 10's of thousands of dollars at other auctions and assume a trip to Dublin, Texas would be some of the same.  We have a low floor price and do not have phantom buyers protecting (bidding up) our offerings.  If a wether gets a bid over floor, he has a new owner!   The highest price ever paid for one or wethers was $3,100 BUT OUR AVERAGE PRICE HAS BEEN AROUND $700 THE LAST FEW YEARS.  Quality wethers at a fair price that win!!!  Review the outline of extra care we take in vaccinating our wethers.  You'll appreciate the difference down the road!  We hope you'll take the time to attend the auction on August 27th.  If you still have questions, drop us an email at champions@millershowgoats.com , call us at 254-396-0946 or, if you know Charlie Jones, give him a call and ask how we conduct our auction.

REVIEW SOME OF THE WETHERS FROM LAST YEAR!

Jared and I spent lots of time trying to get 75 day old wethers to set up like they had been on a lead before.   They didn't!   That's not how I like to show goats anyway.   I like for them to be moving about.   Here is a video, not an airbrushed rendering of a goat, that has been set up.   I hope you like them as much as I do but, either way, they are in a natural state.   This is only about 1/2 of what will be sold on Saturday!

This is a really nice balanced July 2nd born wether that my Mom has done an excellent job raising.   He is a Man O Man son.  It is a shame that he was so camera shy this afternoon otherwise you could see the deep groove down his back.  In the right hands, he could be really special!   (Click on picture for larger view.)

I just couldn't resist taking this late evening feeding picture looking at all those wether butts!   Especially liked that one right after the other is square hipped and has wide spaced feet on those corners.
