Really wish I could have been in Zanesville, OH yesterday (April 6, 2019).
To be at the amazing estate auction for William Longshore Turkey Farm. Machinery Pete follower Jerry Tysinger was at the sale. "Was a very big crowd, 583 bidding numbers out," Tysinger said. "I talked to quite a few people there who didn't even get a number, they were there to watch. Sale was for Longshore Turkey Farm. He was a 2nd generation farmer that passed away last year at 78 years old. They even processed them (turkeys) on the farm. I can remember going there as a kid with my parents to buy turkeys and fresh ground patties."
"None of Bill's equipment ever sat out in the sun, or over night."
Been a while since I've seen a small line of farm equipment like this. Incredible. Here are a few sale price highlights, along with my Machinery Pete notes/prices:
