Property Description

They have a deep well and rural water backup. North barns are 42'X 208' with new gates and wet-dry feeders. The northwest building has a brand-new curtain. Gates swing to be able to adjust pen size or pre-sort. The steel on the roof is less than 4 years old. Each building has two 15-ton bins and they have their own propane tank. They are curtain-sided with linear actuators for a south curtain and run on a car battery which allows 12 hours capacity without electricity.
