Schmidt Implement and family auction coverage

Note: This auction was advertised with — DH

The Schmidt Implement Co. & Schmidt Family Auction sale took place Sunday at 10 a.m. at 8537 Antioch Road (Highway 83), Salem.

Cars were lining Highway 83 as the auction got started this morning. Seekers of older John Deere equipment — or just about anything else John Deere from manuals to caps —  were in luck as this auction had lots to offer.

Schmidt Implement was a John Deere and Gehl dealer in Salem since 1923. This auction sale was to empty out the barn that grandpa Frank Schmidt started the business in 89 years ago, Bob Schmidt said.

The Deere dealership recently was sold to Mid States Equipment and is still operating at 8841 Antioch Road, Salem.
