With approximately twenty-five states represented, the KY / TN January Mule Sales were extreme ..... record breaking prices; record breaking crowds, new ideas converted to proven techniques.
In sharing a few highlights ....
Adin Hoover Mule Sale, which will probably be referred to as the Hoove Mule Sale, from now on, was a crowd pleaser. The Hoover family pulled together all of their talent and produced an absolutely outstanding sale. Upon moving to the Christian Co Livestock Center, many buyers and consignors had flash backs of a sale a few years ago that brought back some harsh memories. Upon arriving, one could immediately see the transformation of the facility.
This sale also produced the highest selling team of all four sales when the hammer slammed on $28,000 for a pair of blonde mare mules.
With crowd and bidders hanging from the rafters, absolutely amazing stock and enough workers to keep this sale moving .... The 2021 Hoover Mule Sale leaves one for the record books.
