A productive dryland farm, a conservative yield is between 110-120 bushel corn, 40-45 bushel beans and 75-90 bushel sorghum. The owner states that they easily meet these goals every year when they have good moisture. With average rainfall above 25”, this is premier dryland farm country!

The ranch is well watered and includes a good set of working facilities, as well as pasture allies to make rotational grazing efficient.
