Spring into Action with Farm Machinery Sales

27th April 2016

Harrison & Hetherington are the UK’s largest livestock auctioneering company, and in addition to their nine livestock auction marts, are often asked to complete on-farm dispersal sales.  The next few weeks will see four sales being held across North Northumberland and Cumbria all with a superb selection of well-maintained livestock equipment and farm machinery being offered.

As the work load increases for the majority of mixed farms, these Harrison and Hetherington spring dispersal sales are all well timed for the beginning of the spring cultivation season.

Kicking off the selling season is a sale at Glenburn Farm, near Canonbie on behalf of Mr J M Warbeck.  The sale, which takes place on Friday 29th April at 11:00am, will include three tractors and range of vehicles and machinery.  Also included in the sale are numerous workshop tools, as well as some hand held tools and toolboxes.

Taking place the following day, on Saturday 30th April, is the on-farm sale of implements and machinery at Broomhouse Farm, near Haltwhistle.  This retirement sale, on behalf of Mr J Losh, will offer buyers a choice of Massey Ferguson tractors, one complete with a loader.  Also offered for sale is an assortment of field and livestock machinery.

The on-farm sale of implements and machinery will take place on behalf of Mr E Bushby at Whangs Farm, Egremont, on Saturday 14th May.  The sale will include three Massey Ferguson tractors, a Manitou MLT, am Avant mini tractor with grab and bucket and a Kingquad, alongside a selection of machinery and implements.  Also available is a large quantity of workshop tools such as welders, compressors and generators and a supply of spare parts.

The fourth sale will take place at Sceughmire Farm, Great Orton, on Friday 28th May.  Offered for sale will be four tractors; one New Holland, two Ford and a Massey Ferguson.  Alongside this will be a range of livestock equipment and farming implements in this general farm sale.

Commenting on the upcoming on-farm sales, auctioneer David Holliday said: “These are all tremendous general farm sales, which tend to be hugely popular.  All four farms are located in strong livestock and mixed farming areas, and have all taken care to ensure their kit is well maintained.

“There is a keen demand for quality used farm implements, and livestock equipment is always sought after.   The sales offer farmers the opportunity to renew and replace existing equipment and are well timed for the beginning of the spring cultivation season, so equipment and machinery can be put to immediate use.”
