PLC yield and a 41.2 acre soybean base with a 44 bu. yield and was enrolled under the ARC County Election of the USDA farm program.  The current non-tillable acres on this farm are comprised of approx. a +/-21.5 acres of grassland, lowland and pasture with a dugout, that are confined primarily to the SW¼ NW¼ and an area in the northeast corner of the N½ SW¼, with these areas providing some excellent hunting an recreational opportunities for pheasants, waterfowl, deer and other wildlife.  This property is near several US Fish and Wildlife Production Areas, and those being nearby enhances the hunting potential on this land, although it should be noted that there are NO Fish & Wildlife Easements in place on this property. The soils on the cropland/tillable acres are very respectable, as according to the Lake Co. Assessors records the N½ SW¼ has an overall soil rating of .788, similarly Surety Agri-Data information indicates the same area has a weighted productivity index of 76; the SW¼ NW¼ which is more recreational in nature, has a County Soil rating of .543, while Surety info. indicates a soil rating on this area of 66.7 and on the combined +/-111 acre unit Surety Agri-Data shows an overall soil rating of a 73.3.  The total 2020 RE taxes payable in 2021 on this property are $1,775.38 on the 80 acre parcel & $474.00 on the 31 acre parcel.  If you are in the market for a parcel of land with both income and recreational amenities, then make plans to inspect this property and be in attendance at this auction.
