Property Info


Phelps County, Nebraska Farmland Auction – Mark your calendar for July 14th, 2022! Peoples Company is proud to be representing the sale of 322.41 acres m/l near Holdrege, Nebraska. This farm consists of 311.49 FSA cropland acres with primary soil types, including the highly-productive Class I Holdrege silt loam. Situated in the Tri-Basin Natural Resource District (NRD), this farm contains approximately 300 acres that are irrigated through three well-maintained pivots. Currently, the Tri Basin NRD does not have a water allocation allowing for ample water to be utilized the entire crop season. This tract is uniquely situated in an area of the basin where groundwater levels have stayed steady since the 1980's.

The farm is leased for the 2022 crop season, and the winning bidder will receive a rent credit at closing in the amount of $40,000. With excellent yield history, water availability, and soil type, this farm would make a great add-on to an existing farm operation or an excellent investment opportunity. The land is located in Section 6 of Lake Township southeast of Holdrege, with quick access to multiple grain marketing options, including seed corn facilities, ethanol plants, co-ops, and feedlots.

The farmland will be offered via public auction as one tract at 10:00 AM at the Phelps County Fairgrounds in Holdrege, Nebraska. Simultaneous online bidding will be available for those unable to attend the live auction.

This property is situated within the Sacramento Creek Improvement area with current annual drainage costs to the landowner of $234 per year. Contact agent for more details.
