Are these mostly antique dealers or collectors that attend these type of events?

Jehan..............I would say it would be the same in your country. It's a mixture ,collectors and onlookers . In the case of this particular sale it was just the junk for auction. The good stuff is in the big shed and will be up for auction soon . Like many farmers health problems loom and it becomes time to downsize.

Yup, clearing sale is probably as good a term as any.

Typical of what one sees back up north in Wisconsin.

There the Amish are big big buyers of such types of implements as shown in the photos.

Of particular interest is PIX #2, the guy with International Harvester logo-ed hat. My dad was foreman there (in Milwaukee) where the IH stuff was made. Have lots of stories/experiences (good ole days).

The end of an era?

Let's hope necessarily not.

Glad I don't have to work with those old tools.
