This Wisconsin Land portfolio is a unique and rare opportunity to acquire an expansive tillable farmland package. The portfolio, which took years to assemble, will be offered at public auction on August 23rd and August 24th via the multi-tract method where buyers can bid on individual tracts, the whole portfolio, or any combination of tracts. The Barron, Dunn, Polk, and Chippewa farms will be offered in Session A on August 23rd in 75 tracts, and the Marathon and Clark County farms will be offered in Session B on August 24th in 28 tracts. The farms contain an impressive maintenance history and have been well-managed over the years. You will not want to miss this opportunity to bid your price on the farm(s) that best fit your needs in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
The owners of the portfolio have taken diligent measures to select quality farmers for tenants in the area that shared similar land stewardship objectives. Several measures have been taken to improve the quality of the farms, such as installing drainage tiles on 1,193 acres, building new machine sheds, and installing irrigation pivots on 285 acres. In this region of Wisconsin, there is a good supply of rainwater and good soils that drain well. The owners have invested in these improvements to make the particular fields more productive because of specific conditions. The owners have conducted full-field comprehensive soil testing on all farms at least once every three years. PH levels have been maintained through regular lime application. The owners have been dedicated to maximizing the surface water flow and drainage through improving waterways in a cost-efficient manner.
As previously mentioned, the portfolio has been managed and operated not only economically but with stewardship as a high priority. The farms have helped preserve local rich landscape features such as rivers, lakes, and wetlands through proper management of surface water flow. Grass buffer strips can be found throughout the portfolio as a means to generate higher yields through topsoil preservation and surface water drainage. Additionally, the majority of the tenants have operated the portfolio with no-till conservation practices.
