Successful machinery sale

Successful machinery sale follows let of dairy farm

Stags Professional Services and On Site Sales departments recently teamed up to let the 180 acre dairy farm at Larkbeare Court, Whimple, near Exeter and recently hold a very successful sale of all the farm machinery and dairy equipment on behalf of Messrs C Pratt & Partners. The letting of the farm on an 8 year Farm Business Tenancy followed a 2 month process that included 2 open days, at which 54 applicants attended, and lead to a number of competitive tenders being submitted. The three best tenderers were interviewed with the successful applicant being chosen also purchasing the whole dairy herd.

The sale of machinery and equipment  followed a week of wet weather but did not deter prospective purchasers attending from long distances. Top price was £35,000 for 2013 Massey Ferguson 5455 Tractor c/w MF 946 Loader. Two other Massey Ferguson Tractors were sold being a 2004 5455 at £14,000 and a 1989 390 at £5,000. Farm Machinery topped at £5,600 for the R.M.H. WAV12 Mixer/Feeder Wagon, with other notable prices being £4,500 for a Marshall 8.5 Tonne Trailer c/w Bale Extension, Lades, Dropsides & Grain Extensions; £4,100 for a Marshall MS105 Galvanised FYM Spreader; £3,600 for a 2009 Lucas G Raptor Mounted Straw Chopper; and £2,700 for a Lotus Stabilo 6 Star Tedder.
