Auction: KLM Tract 2 – 200 +/- Acres
Vaughn-Roth Land Brokers is proud to present these Lyon County properties located between Council Grove and Americus, just east of Dunlap, on behalf of KLM Investments (The family of Mack and Sara Colt) to the public via live auction. Premium grazing pasture, cropland, hay meadow, CRP and timber all combine to make up this tremendous offering! We will be selling these adjacent properties in two separate tracts and will not combine them. These properties have been in the family for decades and this may be the only opportunity to purchase them for decades more.
Tract 2 totals 200 acres more or less and is located directly south of Tract 1. Tract 2 is comprised of CRP, good native hay meadow, timber and a pond. This is a great property for the recreational buyer due to excellent wildlife habitat and a substantial whitetail and bobwhite population. The ag operator will also find this offering attractive due to the quality native hay meadow and a CRP contract expiring in 2025 that will allow flexibility to transition to whatever best fits their operation.
The CRP on this parcel totals 78.25 acres according to FSA records that pays a total of $3,452.00 annually with an expiration date of 9-30-25. The landowner receives 50% of the annual CRP payment while the other 50% goes to a former tenant. After the expiration of the CRP contract in 2025, the buyer can decide how they want to continue using these portions, whether to hay them, add fences and graze, convert back to cropland or possibly re-enroll in CRP. The soil types in the formerly tillable section are composed of mostly of Kenoma and Martin varieties.
There’s multiple hay meadows on the property spaced between areas of timber and CRP. Total acreage of the hayable portions is approximately 40 acres. The grasses within the meadows are mostly resilient native varieties.
Hunters will find a lot to like on this tract with diverse habitat types including hardwood timber adjacent to neighboring crop fields, robust native grasses for bedding areas, brushy edges and good water sources. Privacy is a unique attribute here due to the distance from County roads to the heart of the best habitat and the majority of the east boundary features a hedge row providing great screening. We recently put up trailcams on the property and are already getting quality documentation on the resident wildlife. Keep an eye on the pictures!
