Published: 12/05/2021As the lock down rules eases Cooper and Tanner auctioneers conducted their first spring on farm machinery sale of 2021. Held at Elm Farm, Templecombe for Diva (Sherborne) Ltd, the sale comprised of surplus farm tractors and machinery further to a relinquishing of tenancy of one of their second dairy units. The sale was set out exceptionally well and plenty of room for viewing allowed the auctioneers to maintain good social distancing. The weather was glorious, and the mood was relaxed in the spring sunshine.
“Demand for the genuine (mainly owned from new) modern machinery was strong through-out the auction with bidders from all over the South West, Eastern Counties and Ireland” commented auctioneer Trevor Rowland. Pride of place were the 4 John Deere Tractors which had been on the farm since new and which created keen interest from many clients.
