About SRS Auctions
In November of 1998, because of Joe Stanley’s love of the auction process, he had his first farm equipment and horse auction in Hagansport, Texas. It was a cold, rainy day with about 20 buyers, a few pieces of equipment and 25 horses, all sold in one day. Today, this auction has grown into a two-day auction, conducted twice a year in May and October. There is a full day of farm equipment sold on one weekend and horses sell on another weekend within the month.
In 2000, Joe had the opportunity to purchase Sulphur River Saddlery, Inc. and has worked hard to provide good quality horse tack and saddles to both wholesale and retail customers. Traveling to trade shows, ranch rodeos, and horse sales has been part of his business along with the auction business.
Because of Joe’s desire to branch out into miscellaneous and estate auctions, SRS Auction Services was created under his tack business. A location in Mount Vernon, Texas has been established to facilitate these auctions for SRS customers and buyers.
