Along with the mart’s autumn machinery sale, the two events are fast becoming firm favourites for farmers and dealers alike.

 

In the sheds, 493 lots were entered this year ranging from new tools, nails and screws to lawn mowers and chain saws, followed by larger ride on lawn mowers and quad bikes.

 

Outdoors, 528 lots of larger items were entered, the largest number of entries seen for a number of years, ranging from builders stone, architectural salvage, agricultural miscellanea, to all types of agricultural machinery, tractors and vehicles.

 

More than 80 per cent of all items were sold, making this the most successful machinery sale held at Brock Auction Mart.

A strong line-up of tractors attracted buyers from far and wide.

The event attracted more than 250 registered buyers, coming from as far away as North Wales, County Durham, and Scotland.

 

The social importance of the event was not lost on the directors and auctioneers, says the mart, who recognise that agriculture is currently undergoing major issues within all sectors, and the machinery sale offers a great reason to go and meet up.

 

Due to the problems agriculture is currently facing, good quality second hand machinery is in real demand, says Brock Auction.

 

Often ownership of new items comes with the obligation of finance packages, which not everybody wants to take on. Also, due to export demand, many smaller tractors have been sold abroad, leaving a shortage of good quality, older tractors which are needed for feeder wagon duties during the winter months and some light silage making duties in the summer, for example.

 

Older tractors this sale received good interest and sold above vendors expectations. Clean machinery was also well received and due to the time of year this ranged from chain harrows and rollers to trailers, as well as hay and silage making equipment.

 

The next machinery sale is booked for October 1.
