October 2, 2020 1:00 p.m. EDT | JerseyAuctionLive.com
As sale time approaches, we hope all is progressing well for your consignment to the 2020 Top of the World Sale. This year will be a virtual sale that is broadcast on JerseyAuctionLive.com.
Health tests will need to be conducted slightly different than other national sales. Below is the pertinent information concerning health testing and videography for all consignments. Please read carefully, as there are different dates and requirements.
CONSIGNORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO HAVE THEIR ANIMALS TESTED FOR LEUKOSIS AND BVD-PI PRIOR TO OCT. 1. ANY HEALTH TEST RESULTS RECEIVED PRIOR TO THE SALE WILL BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE. ANY FURTHER TESTING WILL BE CONDUCTED FOLLOWING THE SALE BASED UPON STATE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PURCHASER.
We will require an emailed or faxed copy of your health results when the animal(s) ship. Please send to Hannah Meller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-322-4496 (fax), Attn: Hannah Meller. This letter will also be posted on our website at http://jms.usjersey.com for your convenience.
HEALTH CERTIFICATE: Consignors should wait to have this official paperwork completed until after notification on when the heifer will be picked up by the truck for movement to her new owner, because this paper is only valid for 30 days.
BRAND INSPECTION: Be sure that your animal has been brand inspected if required by your state – at the time of movement only.
REGISTRATION CERTIFICATES: Send the registration certificate with a signed transfer on the back side to the JMS office, attn.: Hannah. Be sure to fill in accurate service information if applicable.
CATALOGS: All consignors will receive a printed catalog. Catalogs can be downloaded at http://jms.usjersey.com.
We look forward to a successful Top of the World Sale in these somewhat difficult times following the cancellation of World Dairy Expo. We hope you will be able to attend the sale on JerseyAuctionLive.com to purchase a good animal for your herd. Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
