Shooting Western Nebraska Auction Wednesday for TV Show
May 18, 2014
Western Nebraska here I come.
Wednesday (May 21, 2014) I will be out in Alliance, NE with film crew shooting a very nice farm retirement auction by my friends at Kraupie's Real Estate & Auctioneers (www.farmauction.net). This is going to be a fun day. Not just because of the nice equipment for sale, more on that in a sec, but also because it will be a chance to see auctioneer Darrell Kraupie do his thing. Darrell's sense of fun and enthusiasm shows through on every sale he does. Case in point, the sale bill for this auction Wednesday...listed start time: 11:02 AM.
"Just my way of trying to bring a smile," Kraupie told me last week when we chatted about the sale and I inquired about the very specific start time. I'm in 100% agreement with Darrell...smiling is a very good thing indeed.
The lucky buyers on this auction will definitely be smiling as owner Norm Keder was obsessive in his care of his equipment over the years. Want visual proof? Check out (4) tractors on the sale:
2002 CaseIH STX375 4WD with 2,924 hours
1979 JD 8440 4WD with 5,338 hours
1973 JD 4630 with 6,921 hours
And check out Norm's Trucks for sale Wednesday:
1974 Chevy C60 grain truck with 42,560 miles, Midwest 18' steel box
1966 Chevy C60 with 115,220 miles, Omaha 14' Standard box
1976 Chevy Pickup with 89,906 miles
Now see why this will be such a fun sale Wednesday? We'll be filming the auction for upcoming episodes of our Machinery Pete "Auction of the Week" show on RFD-TV. I will also shoot some fun video for our Machinery Pete Youtube video channel and try to get some video highlights posted Wednesday evening after the auction....which starts at 11:02 AM.
