This past Saturday was my first experience going to a farm equipment auction!
To me there seemed to be a lot of stuff, but I was told that the summer auctions have even more tractors, trucks, wagons, and such. It can take a while to auction everything off. 🙂
The auction isn’t strictly limited to farm related equipment. One of my favorite things at the auction was this sleigh. We didn’t stay long enough to see what it went for, but I thought it was fun.
The part of the auction that I found the most interesting was how much certain things went for. The item that surprised me the most was a kicker hay wagon that sold for a little over $2,000 when a regular hay wagon in great shape sold for under $400. A lot if the pricing is affected by the season and if it was summer, Daniel said that the hay wagon would have brought twice the amount.
It just shows how much more I have to learn in this farming adventure! It was a great experience and I am glad that I got the opportunity to go.
Do you have any auction stories?
