This is a nice tract of expired CRP that lays flat. There is bluestem but also substantial amount of gramma grasses in the mix. The fences are all in good shape, and with access to water via the pipeline and stock tank, it makes a nice stand-alone tract for grazing livestock. Considering the base acres, however, a new owner might also consider putting it back into cultivation.
