The auction will include a clearance entry of farm machinery for the reps of the late Mike Flavin, Clonard, Youghal, Co. Cork.
According to Kevin Casey of Cork Marts, there are a number of standout items catalogued for this clearance sale.
The hybrid sale will take place in conjunction with Mart Eye at Corrin Event Centre, with the option of in-person and online bidding (register in advance).
Kevin Casey of Cork Marts told That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane:
“In previous auctions, we saw certain tractor implements met with high demand. Previous auctions included two Eamon Power tractor-drawn cattle trailers, an 18ft, which made €9,850 in good condition and a 24ft, which needed tidying, at €10,000.”
“Other notable prices included a grain trailer with removable sides at €13300 and a Herrion grain trailer at €10,200. Meanwhile, a Bredal lime and fertiliser trailed spreader changed hands for €12,000.”
“We are still accepting entries of general machinery for our forthcoming sale. Entries will close on Friday, November 11th,” he added.
