BROKER COMMENTS: The historic use of this property has been the production of wheat, mainly winter wheat. That has been the highest and best use in the past. The recent varieties developed of corn, peas, lentils, safflower, sunflowers and the Roundup resistant varieties have opened a smorgasbord of opportunities. One, of which, is Roundup resistant alfalfa. Now dry land hay can be clean, high quality and very productive. Three ton to the acre is not out of the question.
With these new technologies, a farm that was harnessed to only wheat can now be a large feed base producer for livestock as well as alternative crop production
