Due to the death of my husband Jack Nielsen, I have sold the farm and will be moving into town. I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction to disperse my tractors, equipment, trucks and miscellaneous. I would like to thank you in advance for considering my Saturday morning Auction and would appreciate your attendance.

Very best regards, Julie Nielsen

NOTE: Jack was a farmer and truck driver for over 50 years. Julie has worked for McKenna Restaurant in Lakeview for over 10 years and has been a farm wife for over 40 years. Now Julie will be moving into town to a much smaller place. The tractors have been well maintained and kept in the pole barns.  You’ll want to check out the nice Ford truck, it looks great! Lots of livestock equipment as the Nielsen’s, until July, kept a nice herd of beef brood cows for many years. Make plans to be just west of Lakeview on Sat. September23 for the start of this nice farm auction.

INSPECTION: Friday, September 22nd 4:00PM-6:00PM
