Agweek TV: McMartin auction

In his hay day, Ron McMartin of St. Thomas, N.D., farmed about 50,000 acres around the state. He scaled back as prices dropped, but it wasn't enough to save the operation, and it went bankrupt right before planting season.

Recently, his biggest creditor sold off most of his equipment, and auctioneer Scott Steffes predicts more auctions if prices don't improve.
