Auctioneers Note: As the Hochstetlers have sold their farm and are moving out of state, we will sell the above items at public auction. As there will be some neighboring consignments, we anticipate more than the bill reflects. However we do not expect an overly large auction and we encourage you to be on time. We will start on hayracks and misc. and sell all of the items then finish up the auction with sheep. Make plans to attend!! Thanks, Randy
