In June and July alone, Ritchie Bros. will conduct more than 65 agricultural auctions, including on-the-farm retirement dispersals; site sales in Saskatoon, SK; Regina, SK; North Battleford, SK; and Lethbridge, AB; as well as a special, pre-harvest IronPlanet online auction on June 27.

"We have items for all types and sizes of farms, available to purchase when, where and how you want—whether onsite or online," said Jordan Clarke, Sales Director, Ritchie Bros. "We are so excited to add a special IronPlanet online ag event to the calendar this year, on June 27.
