In the machinery section of the auction, a John Deere 6520 and Case Maxxum 125 attracted plenty of interest, as did various planters including three 25-tonne field bins and a Farm King augur.
Also on offer was a Hardi Explorer 2718 boomspray, a Marshall Multi-spreader 840T and Hustler bale feeder SL700X.
Quick off the auction block were several offerings of new-season oaten pasture hay, with 250 bales in total registered for sale.
While a range of November-shorn ewes were on Tuesday’s auction bill, the Sounness family recently sold the last of their in-calf Angus heifers at the Great Southern Blue Ribbon Female Sale in Mt Barker.
The family also recently finalised the sale of mixed-farming property, 10 minutes west of Mt Barker on Quangellup Road, with Kendenup farmers Peter and Pauline Bunker set to take over the land.
