This Western Osage County parcel totals 52 acres more or less and is comprised of Native grass hay meadow, CRP and some timber. This is a beautiful property with large elevation changes offering some great views in all directions. The location is also very appealing as the property features pavement frontage along Hwy 170 with short drives to Reading, Osage City or Lebo. There’s an electric line running along the north boundary but there is no meter in place. There is no rural water line adjacent.
The majority soil type in the hay meadow portion is Dennis silt loam while the majority soil type in the CRP section is Kenoma silt loam. The CRP contract encompasses 16.43 acres, paying $884.00 annually with an expiration of 9-30-2022. The Native grass hay meadow is of good quality featuring mainly Big and Little Bluestem, Indian and Switch grasses. There is a presence of Sericea Lespedeza on the property which is mostly in the CRP portion. If you need any guidance on the control of Sericea Lespedeza, please feel free to ask. The barbed-wire fences on this parcel range from adequate to non-existent which doesn’t affect the current use of the property. The hay meadow portion has a very capable tenant in place who would like to continue the year-to-year lease if so desired by the Buyer.
For the recreational buyer, this offering has a timbered draw running through it as well as some timber on the west side that borders land owned by the Corps of Engineers which is mainly heavy timber. This stretch of timber is a natural funnel running north from the awesome wildlife area around Melvern Lake and some added food plots should pull the wildlife right across the boundary onto this tract. Take a look at the expanded aerial view and you’ll see what we are talking about!
