It was a brisk but sunny fall day today for the Hosking Farm Complete Dispersal in Hobart, NY. Owners Don & Joanne Hosking as well as their family, friends and The Cattle Exchange crew had the entire herd looking great and ready to please their new owners. A very large crowd was on hand to celebrate the day and bid on the high quality cattle that walked through the ring. At the end of the day the 106 full lots averaged $1857.
