Entrepreneur combines auction tradition with technology

With his roots planted firmly in both the auction business as well as the agricultural sector in southwest Kansas, Scott Brown has seen many changes over the years. Scott, along with his son, Jamie, and a another employee have launched a business to provide a new approach to agricultural auctions.

They have founded AgAuctions, LLC. Greensburg, Kan., to combine traditional farm sales with the technology of Internet-based auctions.

“There’s been several timed Internet auction firms spring up over the country the last few years. We still like the excitement created by the auctioneer’s chant,” Scott Brown said. “Therefore, we have taken a traditional auction with an experienced auctioneer, and added the capabilities for live, simultaneous Internet bidding.”

AgAuctions will be concentrating its efforts heavily on the western two-thirds of Kansas, as well as bordering counties. This will allow all bidders in that area to be within a reasonable distance from any items listed for sale on the firm’s website. All of AgAuctions’ representatives covering the sales area are experienced auctioneers with some agricultural background. The auctioneers have a combined experience of 140 years.

AgAuctions plans to conduct about four sales per year, with the first planned for Dec. 17. AgAuctions is already taking consignments for that sale and discuss the new business venture.
