Ritchie Bros. achieves record farmland prices

45 farm auctions attracting 101,000+ global bidders

Each spring, Ritchie Bros. helps dozens of farmers from Western Canada retire and sell their equipment, farmland, and real estate to interested buyers around the world. This year we conducted 45 farm auctions in March and April with our Timed Auction technology, achieving outstanding results for consignors.

“By attracting unprecedented demand, we have been able to achieve record-breaking returns for equipment and farmland in 2022,” said Jordan Clarke, Sales Director, Ritchie Bros. “Earlier this year, we sold a 155± acre home quarter in Torquay, SK for $1.33 million—setting a new highwater mark for the region.”

“Two months later, we sold 6,100± acres of farmland and a home quarter in The Pas, MB for a combined $12.9 million,” added Mr. Clarke. “Meanwhile, equipment has also been achieving record high prices this spring.”
