Auction: Sauder Tract 2 – 80 +/- Acres
Vaughn-Roth Land Brokers proudly presents this Greenwood and Coffey County real estate on behalf of the estate of Craig Sauder. These properties, many of which have been in the family for 4 generations, are all located near the eastern edge of the legendary Flint Hills region at the confluence of the Woodson, Greenwood and Coffey County lines.
This region has been one of the most-envied by cattle producers across the Country and justifiably so. The native grasses of this area, over a limestone base, continually prove their mettle in the harshest of drought conditions including the unusually dry 2023 grazing season it just endured. This is also a testament to the tenant who did a great job by not abusing these pastures in a year that would have been easy to do so. Please keep in mind when viewing the pastures and ponds that there are areas in the region that haven’t received 1/3rd of their average rainfall in the 2023 grazing season.
Totaling 1,720 acres more or less in tract sizes ranging from 80+/- acres to 360+/- acres or combinations thereof, there’s a tract for every type of Buyer. Flint Hills pasture, good cropland, brome and native hay meadows and two tracts with plenty of hunting appeal compose this diverse offering. Only 4% of original Tallgrass prairie remains in the United States with 2/3rds of that being located in the Flint Hills. This is your opportunity to purchase the resilient and iconic grasslands that puts the pounds on cattle year in and year out, regardless of the extreme adversity it faces. Again, some of these tracts have been in the family for 4 generations and they may stay in the next family for 4 more, so come to the auction prepared to capitalize on this opportunity!
Live auction to be held November 14th at 1:00 p.m. at the Sauder Center located 110 S 1st St, Madison, Kansas
Tract 2- "The Errett Meadow"
Totaling 80 acres more or less, Tract 2 is a good candidate to add hay production for use within your cattle operation or to sell to the public. This parcel is composed mostly of excellent robust native grasses and forbs. The plant community on this tract appears very healthy and is dominated by Big Bluestem and Indian varieties.
Due to its location just off of pavement and proximity to utilities, this tract could also have future potential upside for a build site although there isn't currently enough capacity on the rural water line to add a meter. Both electric service and rural water lines run by this property so if you would like to speculate on future upside, this may be a candidate.
