2012's top consigners Randy & Jodie Majancsik, new consigners from Kentucky, sold a Kiko buck for $600. The best gaining and most resistant buck in the test (Kiko x Boer), another consignment from the Majancsics was the "bargain" of the sale, selling for only $250.

Verlin Garber, a new consigner from Tennessee, sold the test's second best performing buck (3/4 Kiko x 1/4 Boer) for $375. The best Boer buck in the test, consigned by Jill Zink, a new consigner from Indiana, was sold via private treaty for $400.

Bucks (and does) purchased at the September 15 sale were sold to buyers in Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
