Auction report: ‘Blue’ and ‘green’ highlights from big Co. Tyrone sale

Tractors and farm machinery drew the punters to a sale (auction) run by Euro Auctions, at its Dromore site in Co. Tyrone recently.

As is regularly the case for Euro Auctions, a sizeable selection of plant machinery was also on offer; the auction took place on Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23.

Most of the tractors and farm machinery went under the hammer on Friday.

Founded in Dromore, Northern Ireland, Euro Auctions’ first official sale took place in 1998 – during which 371 lots went under the hammer in front of 1,500 bidders.

The business was established by the Keys brothers, who are still actively involved to this day.

Justin Roberts was there for AgriLand to sample the atmosphere, capture these pictures and to jot down the key prices.

In this report, we focus on the Ford / New Holland and John Deere tractors present (along with a ‘wild card’ entry’). Look out for accompanying articles, detailing the prices achieved by other tractors (and equipment).

Please note that all of the prices referenced below are in pounds sterling.

It should be noted that a buyer’s commission of 2.5% must be added to all hammer prices, as well as VAT at the local rate.
