Acreage and Current Operation:
The farm totals 4795.07 deeded acres with just over 91% tillable or approximately 4378 acres of farmland. The farm was seeded to tame hay and alfalfa the fall of 2019 and leased to local ranchers for hay production. The farm was normally planted to winter wheat in late summer and early fall. Spring wheat provides an option to diversify should conditions warrant. Yields in this area average (long term) are from 31 to 39 bushels per year depending on conditions and individual fertilizer programs. A new owner could choose to continue the hay production or go back to small grains production.
