DESCRIPTION: 12,954± acres of excellent native short grass prairie grasses divided in to 27 pastures, all 100 acres or more. A deep commitment to range management and stewardship is evident in the quality of the grass across this property. Ranch has been used successfully for both year-round cow/calf and seasonal yearling operations. Three sets of steel working pens with water are in place making herd management and shipping convenient. Good roads and easy interstate access. Rock outcroppings and bluffs add beauty to this highly productive grazing land. 6,600± acres are enrolled in the Grassland CRP program which adds a significant revenue stream.
STOCK WATER: There are multiple stock wells located on the property and an extensive network of underground piping that delivers water to 45± stock tanks throughout the ranch. Tanks are a combination of 12’ tire tanks and 24’ steel tanks with cement bases. Furthermore, the system is set up for remote monitoring on 5 livestock wells, so the owner is notified on his mobile device when the electricity is out or if there are issues with water pressure. 2 livestock wells are situated on small pipelines and tanks with no monitoring. There are several additional wells that may be used as backup. Cattle generally travel less than one-half mile to access stock water, making this ranch above-average in terms of water supply. Each improvement site and/or cattle working facility has a livestock well.
FENCING: Optimally setup for rotational grazing and cross-fenced into 27 pastures greater than 100 acres. There is approximately 56+/- miles of 3 or 4 wire barbed wire fence and 21.5+/- miles of electrified 2 barbed wire fence with 9 Stafix energizers (fence chargers).
