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.

Results of the main items -

4455 FWA tractor - 2096 original hours - $66,000 Can - ( $61,321 US )

2955 2WD drive with cab - 1600 original hours - $27,000 Can - ( $25,085 US )

Ag Markets in Transition: Analyst

Agricultural markets are in transition, moving from a tight supply/strong demand scenario to one of adequate supply and reasonable demand, according to a US market analyst. Speaking as part of the USDA’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum earlier this month, Consus Ag Consulting Partner Angie Setzer said the sharply weaker corn, soybean, and wheat prices being seen today are not a function of poor demand, despite the fact American exports have generally been slow. Instead, the primary reason for the lower prices is simply heavier global supplies. The fact of the matter is that world grain buyers are “awash” in offers, with no real shortages seen on the horizon, she said. “So, there’s nowhere out there right now where people are like, ‘oh crap, we might run out of wheat,’ or ‘oh no, we might run out of corn.’ No one feels like that right now, where we felt like that in a big way in 2022 for a short time. Demand, though good, is just not enough to outpace the adequate supply we’ve s

Weed seed destructors rare on Canadian farms

About 30 weed seed destructors were used last fall on farms across Canada, says an Agriculture Canada scientist. That isn’t a lot, considering more than 2,000 new combines are sold annually in Canada and the country has some 50,000 grain farms. But farmer adoption of the destructors, which pulverize weed seeds before they exit the combine in chaff, is slowly gaining momentum. “The first mills that we’re aware of (in Canada) were adopted on farm in 2018. To go from none in 2017 to 30 in 2023, to me that shows (some) producers are seeing a benefit from it,” said Breanne Tidemann, an Agriculture Canada weed scientist in Alberta. “A lot of the mills that I’m aware of came on board from 2022 and later.” Weed seed destructors, sometimes called hammer mills or cage mills, are popular with Australian farmers. In 2022 more than 1,100 new combines were sold in Australia, according to the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia. Of those new combines, 25 to 30 percent were equipped wi
