This well-improved property is located 7 miles south of Stratford, Texas on Highway 287. The property boasts approximately 240+/- irrigated acres, 847+/- dryland acres, 48.77 acres just enrolled in CRP SAFE, and 1719+/- acres of grass and other. It lies in two tracts separated by approximately 1 mile on Highway 287. Access to the farm is considered excellent with 3.5 miles of state highway frontage on the west side and county-maintained roads on the east. Stratford is a charming small town located in the heart of Texas’ livestock and farming region. The farm is ideally situated near feed yards, livestock auctions, cotton gins, and grain elevators, and 1.5 hours from Amarillo, Tx.
Since purchasing the farm, the current owners have made many improvements including adding two ¼ mile irrigation pivots, drilling water wells (for both irrigation and livestock), new pipe corrals, adding new livestock drinkers, expanding 3-phase electricity through the farm, and building over 5.5 miles of new barb wire fence, just to mention a few. The focus of the improvements has been to develop an integrated farming and cattle grazing operation allowing flexible management strategies based on rainfall and market conditions. The current owners have taken advantage of strong commodity prices in 2022 and planted corn, cotton, milo, and hay grazer while simultaneously grazing a commercial cow-calf herd on grass pasture. The cattle will graze the grass pastures through the summer months and be rotated to stalks or wheat pastures in the winter.
It is obvious while touring the farm that much thought and attention to detail was given to every improvement decision, and the result is sustainable and diverse cattle grazing and row crop operation. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well-improved and conveniently located property “turnkey” with equipment and cattle being offered for sale separately.
