11,680.00 acres
This very productive, irrigated and dryland farm offers you 11,680 total acres (8,480 deeded with optional 3,200+/- leased). Located in western Nebraska, this is an area with highly sought-after farmland and may be one of the best, well-run farming practices on the market today. It offers abundant soft water (livestock-quality), excellent soils, good access to markets, 3-phase power, and well-maintained improvements. LOCATION/ACCESS Fertile Farmland • Abundant Water • Nearby Resources Located in Perkins and Chase County, Nebraska, this farming operation is in an optimal area for great production and profitable farming. This area of Nebraska raises several million bushels of grain each year. Within a 35-mile radius of the farm, you have several grain elevators on the railroad that give competitive bids for grain; several feedlots to where you can contract silage, hay, and grain; an ethanol plant at Madrid that buys corn; and a 7,000 head organic dairy that is planning to expand. The impressive grain elevator in Venango boasts the ability to load more railroad cars than any other elevator in the nation. The nearest town is Grant, NE (population 1,165), with Madrid to the east, Ogallala to the north, Brandon to the west, and Imperial to the south. State Highway 23 runs east-west directly through town, and State Highway 61 runs north to I-80 only 20 miles up the road. Chase and Perkins County have an average of 20-21 inches of precipitation a year in the form of rain, sleet, and snow. The majority of annual precipitation falls from March 14 to November 7, with the highest concentration of rainfall from mid-May through mid-June, making this an ideal grain-producing area. LAND DESCRIPTION 11,680 total acres • Deep Soils • Excellent production The farm offers highly desirable farm ground, including some irrigated acres, some dry cropland, and 31 acres of building sites. The farm contains multiple separate tracts of ground, located within a 15-minute region of each other.
