Auction Report from Mooretown, Ontario
For more auction information - visit http://www.auctions.farms.com
Here is a report from the former owner of the equipment at yesterdays farm auction in Mooretown, Ontario - which is in Canada within 1 mile of the US. We are located directly across from St. Clair, Michigan which is about 40 miles north of Detroit on the Canadian side of the river.
These numbers are exact with the Canadian $ first followed by US $ in brackets using todays exchange rate. All machinery was in excellent condition - one owner ( except for the combine I was second owner) and there were between 700 and 900 people at the auction. Recently I posted on here about your auction likes and dislikes and used some of those ideas and they were great...... thank you. We had 3 gators available to take the small stuff people bought to their trucks during the auction so they could unload - excellent idea. Parking was on site ( wheat stubble which had been chopped) and the parking was well marked for 3 miles each way before the auction and we had 2 or 3 parking attendants getting people parked correctly - worked great. I had 6 friends there wearing bright orange hats so you only had to ask an "orange hat" for information or help - worked great. Had a lot of items on pallets so at the end we loaded into the back of pickups very easily. And one unknown, we had perfect weatherl - 70F sunny and a light breeze. Lots of other things to help but they were the main ones - oh yeah Betty and I supplied free coffee for the day.
