Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will not be conducting our Annual Farm Machinery Auctions in London & Brodhead. Don't worry, we're still having a farm equipment consignment auction, but it will look a little different. This year, our annual live consignment auctions will be combined into one consignment auction. Also, it will not be a live auction, but instead, the bidding will take place online via an online auction catalog on our website at fordbrothersinc.com. All of the drop-offs and previews of the equipment will be hosted at our Ford Brothers Auction Center in Somerset, Ky. We hope that you will continue to consign with us and will continue to bid with us in this online format. Thank you for being a valued customer of Ford Brothers Inc. Auctioneers all these years. We appreciate your understanding with Covid-19, we had to adapt and transform the annual auctions that we all enjoy attending.
