Auction report: Silage and other machinery pulls the punters

A mix of modern and old machinery, including silage-making equipment, went under the hammer at an on-site auction in England.

The auction took place on Wednesday (May 23) of last week. It was conducted by auctioneer Brown & Co on behalf of Firs Farm, Caxton, Cambridge.

Major ‘on-site’ machinery dispersal sales come up just a handful of times in any given year here in Ireland; they are a more regular occurrence in the UK – thanks to the availability of a larger pool of equipment.

This report focuses on the implements and machinery present. Look out for our previous AgriLand article from this sale, detailing the prices fetched by tractors.
