Take a Look!  Nothing too complicated about this one!  Just a simple, straight forward producer that’s easy to understand.  That may be the best way to describe this 340 deeded acre farm located in the Milk River Valley in Northeast Montana.  Property contains nearly 230 irrigated acres with ample water supplied by BOR’s Irrigation District, another 35 sub-irrigated acres, 19 acres of dryland crop ground with the balance in waterways and wetlands.  Owner reports yields of 6+ tons of alfalfa per acre along with 24 ton corn silage possible.  There are currently 167 acres seeded to alfalfa (52 acres seeded in 2009) with the balance of the irrigated acres historically seeded to rotational and cash crops.  Instead of raising feed and cash crops an owner could opt for a cattle operation or a combination of the two.  Property includes a stock well with power which makes an irrigated summer pasture operation very feasible.  FSA programs are available to help with the cost of cross fencing.  Need additional grazing?  Excellent late fall or winter grazing of crop aftermath is a given.  And, for the knowledgeable Pheasant Hunter, there is the often overlooked potential inherent in this property which deserves serious consideration. With over 2 miles of narrow sloughs and drains containing long grass, brush, and cattails already in place, simply not haying or harvesting the edges of these areas creates natural nesting cover and security for pheasants.  Even a small emphasis on allowing this natural habitat to mature would create prime bird  habitat and would significantly enhance the Pheasant hunting opportunities that currently exist.  Property also contains a small parcel of land that contains a significant Wetland bordered by mature cottonwood trees and brush that is a seasonal home to ducks and other waterfowl.  And as an added bonus, because the property is only ½ mile from the Milk River it naturally attracts whitetail deer that come to feed and hide, providing the owner an opportunity to hunt Whitetail Bucks that the Milk is famous for.  Property has good access from a paved highway and is located approximately eight miles northwest of Glasgow and 30 minutes from Fort Peck Lake.
