April is a busy month for agriculture equipment auctions, with dozens of on-the-farm retirement dispersals in just four weeks. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we moved all our on-farm auctions to our online Timed Auction lot system and results were very strong. Below are some of the many big-ticket agriculture items sold last month.

On April 1 in Fairview, AB, Ritchie Bros. sold this 2018 John Deere S780 combine (Lot 61) via Timed Auction for CA$500,000 (US$354,850). With only 465 hours on the meter this combine was clearly in high demand. It was sold to a buyer from Stettler, AB.
