Rottier auction service began in 1989 as Stan and Jake Rottier went to Missouri Auction School. We have experience in many different types of auctions including farm equipment, dairy cattle, household, real estate, business liquidations, and charity/fund raising auctions. Jim, Stan, and Jake came from a large family which included 11 children, and attended auction regularly while growing up on the family dairy farm. Rottier Auction Service is proud to include Dan Folkema as a member of our team since the early years. Dan is very active and important behind the scenes and is our permanant ring man.
