End of an era
An era of The Basin Angus Ranch came to an end March 24th with Musser Bros selling nearly 500 lots including equipment, trucks, pickups and tractors at auction. An unprecedented crowd of over 2,000 attended the one-day event with buyers arriving from multiple States and Canada. Weather had been a concern as we’ve had a harsh winter across Montana, however, auction day proved to be beautiful with so many folks glad to get out to a farm auction.
When asked about the size of the turn-out, auction manager Mert Musser said, "I'm elated but not surprised. Our marketing reach is getting larger and larger and that combined with a superb offering of a lot of equipment combined to attract an unprecedented crowd."
