Introducing: Steffes Spotlight
July 2022

Welcome to our new vlog series, Steffes Spotlight! In this series, we feature a variety of different people, topics, and stories – all connected to the agriculture and construction world. Steffes Group’s core belief is that every auction we perform is unique and has a story to be told. We launched Steffes Spotlight because we also believe each individual person has a distinctive story of their own. No matter how big or small, a story is a connection point every human can relate to. We believe you have a story and it's our mission to help share your story.
