Selling the Show String

Friday, August 25, 2017 through Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Excited to announce a very special sale ‘Selling the Show String’ to be held online August 25-29, 2017. Mark your calendars!


The show string will arrive at Minnesota State Fair on August 28 and be ready for viewing. The sale will officially kick off Friday afternoon, August 25 and close Tuesday evening, August 29. Stranshome will enter and prep every animal in the show string for the Midwest Fall National Holstein Show on Wednesday, August 30, free of charge. New owners will ultimately make the decision whether or not to show and who they would like to lead; Stranshome will assist in any way possible. This is your opportunity to buy and let someone else do the work as we kick off the fall show season and start looking forward to World Dairy Expo. Also note that following Midwest Fall National, Stranshome will chart to any location or house until the next fall show for new owners.


How to buy? ‘Selling the Show String’ will have a select sales force that will be present at the show to take your bids OR you can be a part of the sales force and earn a 3% commission. If you have a friend, business partner or family member interested in buying and you represent them, you collect the commission (verified by the buyer). Bidding direct online will also be available through Holstein Plaza at
