LOGANSPORT, Indiana (Sept. 21, 2015) — Farmer, inventor and entrepreneur
Ben Dillon is preparing to offer 716 acres of high-quality contiguous
farmland at auction, as he turns his focus toward marketing his Tribine
Harvester, which is being hailed as the first major combine innovation
since the 1940s. Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company
will market the farm and conduct the auction.
“We’re set to begin production in January in our new assembly plant in
Newton, Kansas, and my focus needs to be there rather than on the farm,”
said Dillon, who intends to use the proceeds from the farm sale for
production of the Tribine.
The land he is selling has a history of excellent corn and soybean yields,
with more than 200 bushels of corn per acre, according to Gene Klingaman,
executive of the auction company.
“In addition to the great soils, an attractive aspect is that all 716 acres
are contiguous. In fact, we believe this may be the largest contiguous
field in either Carroll or Cass County. With fields a mile long, it’s very
efficient for use with today’s big, modern equipment,” said Klingaman.
The auction will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 3, at Angie’s Place,
1007 17th Street, Logansport. Schrader personnel will be available from 3
to 6 p.m. Wednesday, October 7, and Tuesday, October 20 to provide detailed
information and accommodate inspections. Online bidding will be available.
