Lamkey Bros. Farm Retirement Online Auction in Riverton, IL Yesterday Produced Record Prices

Remember the old Rolaids TV ads from the 1970’s…“I can’t believe I ate the whole thing”? Well, I’m picking up on a definite new twist to that here in late 2021 from farmers after their retirement auction finishes up.

"I can’t believe my equipment sold for that!"

Such was the case yesterday for Patrick Lamkey of Riverton, IL after their Lamkey Bros. online farm retirement auction concluded as part of yesterday’s Bigiron weekly online sale. Click here to view full sale price report from Lamkey Bros. auction yesterday:
