CARROLLTON, Ohio — For the first time in a quarter century, the Carroll County Daffodil Dairy Sale has been canceled.

“The 41st annual sale is not going to happen until 2016,” Elizabeth Neider, the group’s secretary said this week. “They had to cancel it once before, 25 years ago, so maybe there is something with every 25 years.”

Neider cited the “hit” milk prices have taken as the primary reason for cancelling the event, which is traditionally held on the last Tuesday in March at the Carroll County Fairgrounds.

“It was tough getting consignments this year, but we are hoping to come back in 2016,” Neider said. “Maybe by then dairy prices will have stabilized.”

The sale was conceived in 1973 by Carroll County Extension agent, Jim Clay. By 2014, total sales had exceeded $2 million.
