Jon Angell, Justin Angell and Mike VanMaanen, all of Centralia, have recently purchased the Farmers Livestock Auction in Boonville.
In an interview with Jon Angell, he said the three equal partners purchased the sale barn from previous owner Larry Bock during an auction on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
“Larry Bock indicated to us that he had run the market for 18 years and it just became too much work for one guy,” Angell said. “That’s one thing unique about the partnership. I will handle the marketing as far as advertising and putting out market reports while Mike will be the auctioneer. Justin will work the ring.”
