Blue & Gold Auction at the National Farm Machinery Show Benefits Kentucky FFA
In the spirit of giving and supporting the future of American Agriculture
BigIron co-founders, Ron and Mark, continually speak of their foundation of their youth on the farm and of the leadership that was instilled in them as FFA members. They have first hand experience of the success that can be reaped from youth-based, leadership-building associations. BigIron believes in giving back to the organization that had impacted its founders and in turn, investing in the future of Agriculture.
For a second year, BigIron Auctions, in partnership with National Farm Machinery Show, is conducting a special auction benefiting the Kentucky FFA Foundation – The Blue & Gold Auction.
This year, the two-part auction is open to everyone interested. Whether you are an exhibitor or attendee at NFMS, or an individual interested in supporting the endeavors of the FFA Foundation or perhaps wanting to purchase a new Mahindra UTV or Gatormade gooseneck trailer, everyone can take part.
Online Silent Blue & Gold Auction
The first component of the Blue & Gold auction is an online silent auction held during the days of the National Farm Machinery Show on an online platform outside of BigIron.com. On the silent auction you can bid on items such as Turkey Hunt experiences from North Fork Outfitters, tires from Titan Tire, Power Modules from Steinbauer, and more.
