NOTE:  The Meljestic banner has flown over the Zuidema family farm for 3 generations, now Jan, Jolene and their family have decided to discontinue the dairy portion of their farming operation. Mid-American Auction Co. is honored to be selected to conduct the Meljestic Acres complete registered Holstein dispersal, along with all dairy equipment and selected farm equipment no longer needed when cattle are sold. The Zuidema family is well known throughout Central Minnesota and beyond for their involvement in many aspects of the dairy industry. Their family has been heavily involved in the local 4-H programs, showing at county fairs and at various Holstein shows. Their females have received championship awards in several venues. The Zuidema’s recently received exciting dairy news as their daughter Jessaca received runner-up honors at the 2017 Princess Kay of the Milky Way event at the MN State Fair. Jan & Jolene sincerely hope you can be with us on auction day and hope you will enjoy your selections as much as they have enjoyed raising them over three generations. Please note that we will begin with farm equipment, followed by dairy equipment, then cattle selling in semi-heated tent. Prior inspection welcome by appointment beginning Monday, November 12th.  Thank you!
