In 2022 approx. 1,933’ of new interior 5 barbed wire fence and posts fence was professionally installed by John Bartscher Fencing at the expense of the sellers and the previously existing fencing being above average 4 and 5 barbed wire fencing is in well maintained condition. According to FSA information this farm has approximately 72 acres of cropland with no present established yields and bases, with all of the cropland acres currently sowed to grass. Water is provided from Pierre Creek and is spring fed in several locations providing quality clean water and Hanson-Davison Rural Water is nearby the property. The general topography of this land is gently rolling to somewhat hilly with some existing mature cedars which provide shelter and shade for livestock. According to information obtained from Surety Agri-Data indicates this land has a soil productivity index of 39.1. A positive factor on this property is that there are NO restrictive Grassland or US Fish & Wildlife Easements whatsoever on this land. Another great attribute to this property is that there are some attractive potential sites for future housing, if a future owner should desire to utilize them.
