Property Description

Vaughn-Roth Land Brokers is extremely honored to represent the family and members of T.R. McKinley Inc. with the marketing and sale of their ranch holdings in Norton County, Kansas. The McKinley brand is an iconic one in the cattle industry, both on its own and in conjunction with the well-respected McKinley-Winter brand of decades past. We will be offering a total 2,536 acres in two separate tracts via online auction. 

Tract 2 is located in Southern Norton County with the main access road being on the Graham County line. Totaling 2,223 acres more or less, this is one impressive contiguous tract of Native grass pasture.  There's a diverse plant  community here with the sideslopes being dominated by Little Bluestem, the ridges and perimeters containing a high percentage of Buffalo Grass and Japanese Brome as well as resilient Sideoats and Blue Grama varieties found throughout.  The topography of this tract features many substantial elevation changes providing both aesthetic beauty and wind protection for livestock. There are also multiple timbered draws which you cow-calf operators will find attractive.

The water on this parcel is supplied by a windmill and tank as well as a developed spring serving the western and central portions while the eastern portion is served by a sizable pond. Please view the videos of the springs, pond and tank on our website.

The perimeter fences are barbed wire that mostly rate from good to adequate with a short stretch near the southeast corner needing some attention. The tenant also grazes the adjoining landowner’s pasture and the subject stretch is used by the cattle to go back and forth between the properties. There's a sizable catchpen near the main gate on the south side of the property that also contains multiple sorting pens. The grazing tenant has expressed an interest in continuing the grazing lease if the Buyer has an interest in doing so.

If you are interested in expanding your cattle operations or investment portfolio, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. Parcels of this quality and contiguous acres of Native grass don’t come along often and it may be another hundred years before they change hands again.
