Lot #1:     Beyond Hope Athena   Reg       DOB 3/5/2021
red frosted heifer calf

Beyond Hope Athena ticks all the boxes; conformation, disposition and genetics. She is the product of We Tired Juliette (her grandmother who calved into her late teens) and We Tired Alyssa, (her mother, and the last calf out of We Tired Acres) and she is sired by Skye High Cornerstone.  Cornerstone boast genetics from Drover Hill, Jock of Glengorm and LEA. This heifer is true, level, correct and beautifully feminine. She is halter trained, fully vaccinated, BVD and TB negative and well handled. She has been exposed to lots of kids, dogs and chicken. She would make a gorgeous addition to your fold with her deep red, almost purple color and gorgeous frosting. Her mother and grandmother both calved with ease and are wonderful mothers.  We fully expect Athena to do the same.

red heifer calf

Unique is a very correct heifer with a fancy head and neck.  She has been shown and is ready to go and show for you.  After two fairs with her mom, Unique is bomb proof!  This heifer is getting better every day.  Her calm demeanor had her chosen to be used for Sweepstakes Showmanship at the Michigan State Fair in Novi, where she was handed off to a showman with little to no knowledge of showing cattle, and showed herself.  Don't miss your opportunity to add something "Unique" to your show string!

Lot # 5:  MCL Farm Kuruk's Honor  Reg 60359    DOB 12/3/2019
red heifer

MCL Farm Kuruk's Honor (“Honey”) was born December 3, 2019. She is out of Skye High Xabec who was naturally bred to Shat-Acres Columbia, who was affectionately called Kuruk (which means Bear in Pawnee)  by his long time owner. Honey is calm, well mannered, halter broken and leads. She has never been shown. She has been raised strictly on grass and stored forage, never given grain. McLaughlin Farm offers Honey as we have elected to discontinue breeding, otherwise she would have become part of our breeding herd. Her sire had a long productive life, and her dam is still a healthy, breed-able cow at age 11. Honey  too should have a long productive life ahead of her.

Lot #6:  LSK Lacy        Reg 61981       DOB 10/9/2020
white heifer

The most positive trait of LSK Lacy is her personality. She leads well and appears to like interaction with humans in general. At the UP and lower state fairs, she was subjected to multiple baths, blow drying, and combing. All of which, (including fair goers’ ongoing attention), she endured free of any aggressive acts.Simply stated, she is a peach to be around.
Lacy’s personality is paralleled with a beautiful coat of white hair. Additionally, her hair covers a structurally sound and well-proportioned frame. A pair of two calf classes prevents me from using Lacy’s show history to support my observation. Nevertheless, it is worth stating that all judges’ comments concerning Lacy were positive. Finally, LSK Lacy has an excellent genetic background. Osceola Sir William was an outstanding bull produced by one of Michigan’s most successful farms, Osceola Highlands. Lacy’s dam was heavily influenced by Skye High Highlands, yet another excellent Michigan farm. Thus, all the evidence suggests Lacy’s progeny will reflect her outstanding personality, appearance, and
genetics.
