Hundreds Bid For Bargains
"We just open up and they bring it to us. We check it in, and sell it for them," Harrison said. "We've got tractors, combines, trucks, trailers, miscellaneous, bailers, rakes - anything to do with farm equipment or farm-related. They can bring it in and we can sell it for them."
Farmers from all over mid-Missouri showed up to make purchases of all kinds, for all sorts of farms.
"I used to have livestock, but not anymore, just grain and hay," said Paul Dubbert, a farmer who traveled from Laddonia to take part in the sale.
"I bought a couple augers and a hay rake - that's all I got so far," Dubbert said.
Dubbert says an equipment auction like this is more than buying and selling, it is also a social event.
"They come from all over and it's people you haven't seen for a year and you get to visit with them and maybe get a bargain at the same time," said Dubbert.
Harrison expects to ring up nearly $700,000 in business today. One combine can generally command a price of $25,000.
