Machinery Auction, Fethard, Co Tipperary, June 1st, 2010
A great crowd, in excess of 250, attended an auction held by us at Lakefield, Fethard, Co Tipperary for Mr Nicholas Goodbody, yesterday, June 1st.
Almost 70 lots of used machinery were put up for sale, all of which were used on Nicholas' farm until his retirement from farming recently.
With a backdrop of Slievenamon and under a blazing sun, the bidding was strong and all bar 2 of the lots were sold. This MF 50b was one of the unsold lots!
Star of the sale was a NH TX65 Combine, which went for €56,000.
A 1995 JD 7800 made €20,000 and a 1991 JD 3650 made €14,500.
A 4-furrow plough made €5,100, a ring roller €3,900, Fleming Topper €4,000, while grain trailers made €3,400 for single axle and €4,000 for tandems.
All in all, a great sale, in great weather, leaving all concerned happy with the outcome.
