TUESDAY OCTOBER 20, 2020              SALE TIME:  10:00 AM

This auction provides the opportunity to purchase a high quality parcel of Baker Township Davison County SD land.  This 79.02 acre parcel has been part of a quarter section that has been in the Gerlach Family and descendants thereof for many decades, although at this time due to the undivided ownership in this parcel of land, the owners have decided to sell this 80 acre farm – previously this land has been operated in common as part of a larger 160 acre parcel and in conjunction with an adjoining 80 acre property owned by their aunt, and throughout the years has been accessed from the west through that  parcel of land, subsequently a new owner will need to develop their own access to this parcel of land being sold from the minimum maintenance road that borders the south side of the property, which should not be very difficult as the ditch is nearly level in areas.   According to FSA information this 79.02 acre farm has approximately 75.28 acres of cropland with a 46.79 acre corn base with a 96 bu. PLC yield, an 11.3 acre soybean base with a 36 bu. PLC yield and a 12.92 acre oats base with an 83 bu. PLC yield with this land currently enrolled under the ARC Co. election of the USDA farm program. The non-tillable acres on this farm consist primarily of a +/-2.95 acre tree grove that runs east and west through the south third of the farm.  According information from Surety Agri-Data, Inc. this farm has a weighted average productivity index of a 79.3; comparatively Davison Co. Assessor’s info. indicates this farm has an overall soil rating of 74.6. The general topography of this land is level to very gently rolling. The 2019 RE taxes payable in 2020 on this property were $1,622.10.   This farm has very good eye appeal and must be seen to be appreciated. A recent survey of this property has been completed at the expense of the owners by Midwest Land Surveying, Inc., in order to ascertain the actual total acres and establish the location of the west boundary of the property – this land is being sold will be in accordance with the surveyed acres.    If you are the market for a parcel of land to add to a row crop farming operation or as an investment, then get your financing in order, as interest rates are at or near record lows making this an extremely good time to make a long term investment in a high caliber farm such as this property.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this auction, or if you are unable to attend and need to make arrangements to bid by phone, then contact the auctioneers prior to sale day to make arrangements.
