Consists of 12,747 deeded ac., 10,233 ac. cropland, & 601 ac. St/lease, for a total of 10,834 acres of Crop Ground. 1,191 ac. of excellent CRP (fall 2018) with a $34,750 payment adds future organic farming options. Do the math. The value is there!
Pride of ownership is immediately evident as you drive into the clean, well-kept farmstead. Nearly 2.2 million dollars of excellent improvements are well positioned and appropriate for an operation of this size and caliber. Most of the improvements were constructed within the last 8 years. Farm has 280,000 bu. of grain storage positioned throughout the farm, most w/hopper bottoms and all with high end aeration systems. An additional 100,000 bushels of storage is available in 60’x 150’ Zipperlock Building, well situated with a 45’ x 63’ metal utility shop and Fertilizer Hopper bins with 450 tons of capacity.
A large 12,000 sq. ft. metal shop is the center piece of the farmstead. Recently built, this 80’ x 150’ Behlen building is energy efficient, well lighted, with its own large office, bathroom w/shower and mudroom area, elevated parts decks, its own RO system, security system, and a heated floor. Huge 30’ wide by 24’ high doors allow entry for large tractors w/air drill attached!
Adjacent to the main shop is fuel storage with one 11,000 gallon farm diesel tank, one 2,300 gallon gas tank, and one 2,300 gallon road diesel tank, all in a concrete containment structure. An additional new, off farmstead 24’ x 32’ metal storage building used for chemicals and other storage round out the improvements.
Crops currently grown include Spring Wheat, Winter Wheat, Lentils, Peas, and Hay. CRP out in 2017 and 2018 allows for Organic Farming as an option!
Adjoining the farm is the main grazing unit consisting of nearly 3,800+/- total acres of excellent grazing. Grazing unit is well watered with a spring fed creek running the length of the pastures combined with a new, “state of the art” watering system used as supplemental source for livestock. Pasture is well fenced with over 4 miles of new fence in place with an additional 3 miles of fence scheduled to be built as part of new highway construction in 2018. Pasture includes 1,400+/- acres deeded ground of which 527 acres are tame grass, 2,050+/- acres of BLM, 340 acres State lease and provides summer grazing for 170 to 200 pairs with grass left over. Additional smaller pastures within the farm unit are used as breeding pastures and fall grazing and adds carrying capacity. Property includes over 12 miles of new fence plus several miles of existing fence.
