Irrigated Kansas farmland to be offered in July 1 auction

Approximately 2,752 acres of farmland in southwest Kansas - most of it irrigated with excellent water - will be offered at auction Tuesday, July 1, with Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company marketing the property in cooperation with the Lund Company.

The property, most of which is in Stevens County, includes land tracts ranging from 159 acres to 799 acres. The 159-acre tract is located in Grant County.

"These tracts include excellent soils and water, with more than 1,400 contiguous acres. Also included in the offering is a 12-acre tract that has a 2,320-square-foot home, a 3,058-square-foot heated shop, a machine shed, an office building and cattle pens with load-out. This provides an outstanding farm for someone interested in a turnkey operation," said R.D. Schrader, president of the auction company.

"The land being offered in this auction is equally suited to investors or to local farmers who might wish to expand their operations. Our system of bidding ensures that all bidders compete on an equal footing. As a result, we could have one buyer purchasing all of the land or as many as eight different buyers. You never know until the day of the auction," said Schrader.

The auction will begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, at the Memorial Hall in Hugoton. Personnel will be available to guide inspections and provide detailed information on June 4, June 18 and June 30.

Individuals seeking additional information may visit www.schraderauction.com or call 800-451-2701. Online bidding will be available for bidders who register by Tuesday, June 24. Online bidders are able to see the auction, including the bids and combinations, and enter bids during the live auction.
