With the current pandemic, farm sales are being held online and with F Pennington & Sons of Yonder Ridge Farm, Stockland having already booked the sale in the GTH calendar pre Covid-19, the decision was taken to transfer the sale online which resulted in Europe wide bidding and sale prices exceeding expectation.
The sale was held as an online timed auction and comprised of a John Deere tractor, a Claas combine, various cultivation equipment and farm machinery.
The headline price was £33,100, for the John Deere 8300 (1998) tractor. Other top prices saw a Claas 98 SL Combine make £12,500, a Vaderstad Rapid Drill reach £8,300, a Kuhn Multi-Master Plough (2009) make £8,100 and a Caterpillar Series D Bulldozer reach £5,300.
A range of cultivation equipment sold to £5,500 for an Opico He Va 5 Leg Subsoiler (2007), £5,300 for a Vaderstud CS 6M Cultus Cultivator and £4,500 for a Standen 3M Rotavator.
