Brent Belcher is a third generation auctioneer. He started clerking and setting up auctions for his father, Ed Belcher while attending college. He called his first sale at the age of 20 and has been a full time auctioneer ever since. The late Harold Belcher established Belcher-Dingman-Spaulding Auctioneers in 1919. Prior to WWII, Ed Belcher joined his father in the auction business. Then in the early 1960’s, Brent joined his father, making it a three-generation business. A fourth generation was added when Brent’s son, Kevin, joined up in 1980.
In a letter to the selection board, his son, Kevin Belcher wrote: "To my knowledge, my father has never refused to donate his time and talents to any church or charitable organization that has asked for his help in putting on an auction. He has sold countless Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever sales throughout the state. Dad has sold at 30 of the past 34 Calhoun County 4-H livestock auctions which have set 3 world records. He has also helped at the Eaton County 4-H livestock sale for the past few years. He donates not only his expertise but also his time and energy helping 4-H members.
