This facility is a USDA Certified Organic operation since 2000 and has been used to receive, process and feed cattle on the acreage during that time frame. The Organic Certification will have no bearing on the future use of the facility. The operation is not CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) certified and consequently it is limited to less than 1,000 animal units in the lots. A stocker receiving operation utilizing the grass traps would create flexibility.
305 acres, more or less, of OK land for sale that will include the water interest but will not include the mineral interest.
Four miles North of Welch, Oklahoma on Highway 59 and then West on E 60 Road for 1.75 miles to the Southeast corner of the tract.
Miami and Vinita are approximately 20 miles to the East and South, respectively.
This Oklahoma receiving yard is a USDA Certified Organic operation since 2000 and has been used to receive, process and feed cattle on the acreage during that time frame. The Organic certification has no bearing on the future use of the property. The operation is not CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) certified and consequently it is limited to less than 1,000 animal units in the lots year round. A stocker receiving operation utilizing the grass traps should have more flexibility.
The 10 receiving lots are located on the elevated ground on the extreme West side of the property, while the 6 feedlot pens are located on a ridge that runs Northeast across the center of the acreage. (Elevation and Aerial Maps are available)
The receiving lots, as well as, many of the feedlot pens adjoin grass traps and flow to the processing
area via an alley way. The North receiving pens also have a hospital shed, pens and processing area.
The processing facility contains a covered hydraulic squeeze chute and electronic walk on scales. This area is complimented by a hospital shed, several sorting and holding lots, truck load out and receiving chute. These well constructed corrals are user and livestock friendly.An office is adjacent to the processing and feed processing region of the headquarters.
The feed mill is made of 5 bins, which will store several loads of grain, a roller mill and a covered
commodity shed. These bins are connected by augers to the roller mill and from there the processed grain is moved via an overhead auger to the flat storage bins.
The South side of the commodity shed houses the equipment and an enclosed shop.
A mobile home is situated south of the headquarters and sells as-is, with no representation or warranty.
The office and mobile home are serviced by a Rural Water District while the livestock are watered by a productive well that produces an abundant supply of water but is not suitable for human consumption. Fresh water is available in the pens and some of the traps by utilizing heavy duty rubber tire tanks. The 40 acre trap in Section 36 and other traps are also watered by ponds. A wet weather tributary flows across several of the traps.
SOILS and FORAGE BASE:
The Dennis silt loam soils are the base of forages on the higher ground and slopes, while the Parson and Apperson soils are more prominent in the lower ground. These soils are well suited to the Bermuda and fescue base that has been over-seeded with red clover and Red River Crabgrass. The forage acres have been fertilized with chicken litter which does not jeopardize the organic designation. The location near the chicken industry provides a ready source of nutrients without large trucking cost.
Whether your goal is organic, natural or just plain commodity based, the position near the cow herd base in the four state area and the several large auction markets nearby have to enhance the value of this well placed facility. The ranch is well located to move cattle from the Eastern and Southern United States to the feedlot regions of the West. The fertile farmland of Northeast Oklahoma and Southeast Kansas provide a readily available source of grain and other commodities.
The lot currently leases additional land adjoining and near the acreage that further enhances the cattle capacity. These leases have the possibility of being transferred with the ranch but are not guaranteed or part of the sale package. This area does have tracts owned by absentee owners and a good operator can in time add lease land or perhaps even buy additional land to grow the operation.
Oklahoma’s Federal Accelerated Depreciation on depreciable property on former Indian Land affords accelerated depreciation of approximately 40% on all but residential property. The property is considered to be on Former Indian Land and this incentive is awaiting Congressional extension. An example of the large amount of depreciation would be the 3,900 linear feet of concrete troughs used in the receiving and feedlot pens. Oklahoma’s advalorem taxes are much lower than many states and the current taxes are approximately.
