GENERAL DESCRIPTION: This Wisconsin Land portfolio is a unique & rare opportunity to acquire an expansive tillable farmland package. The portfolio, which took years to assemble, will be offered at public auction on August 23rd & August 24th via the multitract method where buyers can bid on individual tracts or any combination of tracts per session. The Barron, Dunn, Polk & Chippewa farms will be offered in Session A on August 23rd in 75 tracts, & the Marathon & Clark County farms will be offered in Session B on August 24th in 28 tracts. The farms contain an impressive maintenance history & have been well managed over the years. Do not miss this opportunity to bid your price on the farm(s) that best fit your needs in a once in a lifetime opportunity!
MAINTENANCE & FARM IMPROVEMENTS: The owners of the portfolio have taken diligent measures to select quality farmers for tenants in the area that shared similar land stewardship objectives. Several measures have been taken to improve the quality of the farms, such as installing drainage tiles on 1,193+/- acres, building new machine sheds, & installing irrigation pivots on 285 acres. In this region of Wisconsin, there is a good supply of rainwater & good soils that drain well. The owners have invested in these improvements to make the particular fields more productive because of specific conditions. The owners have conducted full field comprehensive soil testing on all farms at least once every three years.
PH levels have been maintained through regular lime application. The owners have been dedicated to maximizing the surface water flow & drainage through improving waterways in a cost-efficient manner.
ESG & CONSERVATION MEASUREMENTS: As previously mentioned, the portfolio has been managed & operated not only economically but with stewardship as a high priority. The farms have helped preserve local rich landscape features such as rivers, lakes & wetlands through proper management of surface waterflow. Grass buffer strips can be found throughout the portfolio as a means to generate higher yields through topsoil preservation & surface water drainage. Additionally, the majority of the tenants have operated the portfolio with no-till conservation practices.
