After over 40 years I have decided to quite milking cows and empty the barns of my collector tractors, horse equipment & farm primitives, therefore I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live, On-site Public Auction. I invite all to attend my Auction and thank you in advance for you attendance.


Very best regards,

Paul Klein
