Agent Comments

The ultimate southern Iowa cattle pasture! You can own this 197 acres and grow your operation. The seller of this property has worked hard to improve the pasture and forage for long rotations. This property affords opportunities for paddock placements and rotations that will help you maximize your grass growing season and if you can't get to it, many areas on the farm can be hayed. The pond on this property is solid and provides water year round. Fences have been improved around the property and the seller will install a 1/2 mile fence to separate the property from the portion they will keep at their expense. Owning this farm from a distance is a snap, the sellers current hired hand is willing to continue to care for cattle on the property and the seller has been very pleased with him but it is not required. Bidding will end on this property at 2PM on February 19th.
