Auctioneers’ Note: Mark your calendars now and make plans to attend this very unique no-reserve farm estate auction. The cattle ranching and farming history runs deep in the Danckwart past. The late Bill Danckwart would travel out west and purchase cattle, which he would truck back to Minnesota to their farm. Bill & Marjorie even once attended (by personal invitation) a large cattle auction in Arizona on John Wayne’s ranch. Bill was an interesting gentleman and one of the best story tellers ever; after a SEMA auction a few years back, he gave Luke Sullivan a personal tour of his low houred tractors, telling the story of each tractor all the way back to the day he purchased them new. Rarely does an auction of this low of houred tractors come up for auction.

This auction was written up when it was below zero; therefore, many of the items were photographed in the shed. Follow our website closer to sale day for updated photos and detailed internet bidding catalog. Internet bidding will be available prior-to and live during the auction.

Lunch available on the grounds. Not responsible for accidents, errors or omissions. Announcements sale day take precedence.
