The acreage amount for the portion currently in row-crop production is approximately 72 acres with the soil map indicating majority soil types within the tillable section as Kenoma silt loam (1-3% slopes) and Summit silty clay loam 3-7% slopes). There’s also a minority compliment of both Woodson and Dennis silt loam. Please refer to the soil map and FSA map within the “Related Documents” section on our website.

The eastern 1/3rd of this tract contains a fenced grass trap of approximately 36 acres that contains cool-season grasses, mainly composed of a thick stand of fescue and smooth brome and portions are hayable. The soil types within this area are entirely composed of Dennis silt loam with 1-3% slope and channeled Verdigris silt loam in the low spots. A high percentage of this area could also be hayed if desired. Adjacent to the pasture on the north end is an excellent guardrail enclosed cattle pen with concrete waterer connected to rural water that could be used as a catchpen or for additional bunk space to feed in. Fences around the east pasture rate from very good to adequate based on the section. The east boundary is enclosed by 6' tall woven wire while the south and west sides are barbed wire and the north boundary is a mix of barbed wire and guardrail. The livestock water in this pasture is provided by a large pond in the south half and a smaller pit pond in the north.

There's also a sizable grass trap of approximately 23 acres in the northwest quadrant that's attached to the main set of cattle pens. The grass here is highlighted by a lush and robust stand of smooth brome. Hay it or use it for cool season grazing, whichever best fits your operation. Other than the guardrail, the fences around this portion are mostly 6-strand barbed wire rated very good to excellent. There's also a pond in this trap for livestock water.

The cattle pens are very impressive and would cost a small fortune to replace. They are completely enclosed with excellent 3 tier guardrail and are flanked on the inside boundaries by good concrete J-bunks that are mostly in good condition. There's approximately 900' lineal feet of bunks in 6 separate pens encompassing about 8.5 acres. In addition, there's a barn measuring 80' X 44' including the lean-to on the west side located between the cattle pens for storage of cattle feeding equipment and supplies. In past years, the water in the cattle pens has been provided by automatic waterers of which the operating condition is currently unknown.

Access is also excellent via good County roads with a location right off I-35 not far from Emporia, Lebo and Beto Junction, allowing for convenient drives to multiple cattle and grain markets.
