JD Equipment to film ag auction Saturday


JD Equipment Annual Ag Auction to serve as backdrop for TV program on used ag equipment

Staff report



U.S. Farm Report will videotape portions of the JD Equipment Annual Ag Auction for a special nationwide TV segment focused on used ag equipment.

The filming will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday during the company’s auction at the Ohio Farm Science Review site, 135 State Route 38 NE, London.

The program, entitled “On the Road with Machinery Pete,” features local John Deere equipment dealers from around the country discussing trends in the market with U.S. Farm Report hosts and Farm Journal’s used equipment expert, Greg Peterson.

U.S. Farm Report video crews will be on hand to videotape the event and conduct interviews with local producers. The auction, which is expected to host as many as 500 people, will feature more than 125 pieces of equipment valued over a combined $5 million.

Equipment available for sale includes combines, tractors, sprayers, skid loaders, grain carts, tillage equipment and an assortment of other ag and turf equipment.

“Our annual ag auction is an event that we host every year, but this is our first time holding the event at the Ohio Farm Service Review site,” said Ted Miller, used equipment director at JD Equipment. “The auction serves as the perfect setting to discuss trends in the used equipment market, and gives U.S. Farm Report a great opportunity to speak with producers in our area about the tremendous value and technology in late-model used ag equipment.”

After the auction, Machinery Pete will join U.S. Farm Report host Clinton Griffiths and JD Equipment’s Miller to discuss the dealership and trends within the used equipment market.
