“Our method of bidding enables bidders to buy just the land that suits their needs, putting all on an equal footing. We had a buyer who purchased 100 acres and another who purchased 1,409 acres,” said Schrader.

“We were hopeful that we would get a good response, because the timber and game were well managed, and the land was excellent for recreation as well. Ultimately, it appeared to be investors buying most of the tracts,” said Gene Klingaman, vice president of the auction company.
