Cavender Estate in the sale of 80 acres m/l situated between Guthrie Center, Iowa, and Audubon, Iowa.

The average CSR2 soil rating on the current cropland acres is 57.7. The farm lease has been terminated and is available for the 2023 cropping season. Early possession of the crop ground is available.

This farm has a history of high-level stewardship through maintenance and historical improvements.

The drainage tile outlets water to the east side of the farm near the road. Maps showing the exact location of all drainage tiles are not available and Buyer should make their own investigation of the actual location. Additional improvements were completed on the farm between the years of 2005 and 2006 where several trees were removed in the main east/west waterway.

The farm has a great location 2.5 miles from paved road Hwy 44 with several competing grain markets including grain elevators, livestock producers, and three available ethanol plants. This farmland tract would make for an outstanding add-on unit to an existing farm operation, a beginning farmer purchase, or an investor looking to diversify their portfolio from the volatility in other asset classes.

The farmland tract will be offered through a TIMED ONLINE ONLY auction. Bidding is currently LIVE and will remain open until Friday, April 14th, 2023 at 3:00 PM Central Time Zone (CST).
