BigIron Auctions to Partner in National Sorghum Producers Fundraiser
Fundraiser will help raise money to support sorghum farmers
St. Edward, Neb (Feb. 26, 2019) – BigIron Auctions announced this week the company will provide its expertise and partner with the National Sorghum Producers (NSP) in its biggest fundraiser of the year. The fundraiser will take place in conjunction with the 2019 Commodity Classic show, which is one of the largest in the agriculture industry.
The fundraiser includes three auctions: an online auction, a silent auction, and a live auction. The online auction begins three weeks prior to the Commodity Classic show, available on BigIron’s state-of-the-art online auction site. The silent and live auctions take place at the fundraiser’s casino night, with BigIron’s owner and co-founder Mark Stock serving as auctioneer during the live event. Money raised will go toward supporting American sorghum farmers.
“National Sorghum Producers (NSP) serves as the voice of the sorghum industry, and fundraising efforts like this are critical to our success, creating policies that benefit U.S. sorghum farmers,” said Tim Lust, NSP CEO. “We are excited for this event that will feature auctions led by BigIron, and our hope is to raise money that will help with legislative and regulatory change in the sorghum industry in addition to fun fellowship with sorghum farmers at Commodity Classic.”
“We are proud to be a part of this event and to see our partnership with the National Sorghum Producers thrive,” said Stock. “Sorghum is a staple crop of our nation, and BigIron Auctions is proud to partner with their efforts”.
The event auction will include 56 items, including three wild game hunts, a Case IH 9250 axial-flow combine lease, and a football signed by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
