HANCOCK, COUNTY, Il (WGEM) — Area farmers got the chance to save money on equipment in Hancock County Thursday at one of the largest farm auctions in the Tri-States.

There was everything from trucks, combines, plows, and storage containers.

Organizers say because the event drew such a big crowd, there were three auction rings that ran all at once.

The Sullivan Family says the event brought in around 5-thousand people because agriculture is such a big part of the community.

John Probasco of Sullivan Auctioneers said,  “it is probably to my knowledge the largest absolute sale of this size in the nation.”
