Property Description

Located on the east end of the Flint Hills sits this turn-key cattle operation on 144 +/- acres. Located on the Lyon, Osage, and Coffey county lines, this property was built and designed for a cattle producer with its 4 separate pastures, plentiful water, working pens, and a calving barn.

As you pull into the private drive you’ll notice the new, tight 5-strand barbed wire fencing leading to the house and the start of the cattle pens. The pens were custom built with dirt work done so the alleyway and pens flow downhill for ease of use. The pens and working facilities consist of 3 large feeding pens, 3 smaller pens with lean-to access to the barn, and a working pen with 2 sort pens below the tub and chute. All pens are made of all pipe tubing that will surely outlast our lifetime.

The working facility also includes a 40’x100’ insulated calving barn with an office and four 12-foot doors, which allows an operator to calve out of the elements. Inside the calving barn includes 6 permanent pipe calving pens and a maternity pen along with a wash rack.

This facility was designed and built in 2015 with ease of working and moving cattle in mind. Trees and a creek run the entire north end of the property for excellent winter protection. Buyer has the option of a long-term lease on additional 2 sections of top Flint Hills grass owned by the seller just 45 minutes away for summer grazing.

This ranch is primarily made up of a hearty blend of native grass including big blue and little blue and tame grass of brome and fescue. There are 4 separate pastures set up for rotational grazing with plentiful water throughout each pasture including automatic waterers.

On the highest point of the property sits a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath farmhouse with 1,156 square feet of living space. A perfect house for a ranch hand or for you, to look over your herd.

Let's not forget about the deer and turkey hunting! The owner shot a 185” buck on the property in 2021 and has years of trail camera history. There are many prime food plot locations and pinch points for some excellent deer hunting.

From prime spring and summer grazing to winter months, this fully operational cattle facility has it all. It’s just waiting for a new owner to take over and take advantage of all the improvements. Call Listing Agent Cody Thurston today at (620) 794-1229 to set up a private showing!
