The Jessen Farm of Western Nebraska is a very productive, 8,480 acre irrigated and dryland farm located in Perkins and Chase County, Nebraska. This location near Grant, Nebraska is some of the most highly sought after farmland in the Midwest. Good water, excellent soils and good access to markets makes this a very rare offering. The farm contains 1,608 acres of center pivot irrigated cropland ( under 12 center pivots), 350 acres of dry cropland pivot comers, 5,795 acres of dry cropland, 31 acres of building sites and 112.69 acres of county roads for a total of 7,896.69 acres. Tracts of farm ground are located within a 15 minute region and include excellent pivots, water and close proximity to five grain elevators on the railroad, which give competitive bids for grain. The area also has several feedlots to where you can contract silage, hay and grain. There is an ethanol plant at Madrid that also buys corn. These elevators and feedlots are in a thirty-five mile radius of the farm. This area is also an excellent area to set up a cattle feeding operation. You could grow your own sileage, hay and grain to feed your own cattle or start a custom feeding operation. You can buy wet distillers grain from the Madrid ethanol plant. The farm is centrally located between three major beef packing plants. This area of Nebraska raises several million bushels of grain each year and the close location to markets make this an ideal location to feed cattle. The Jessen Farm currently sells 5000 tons of dry matter per year to the Oshkosh Dairy Heifer Development at Oshkosh, Nebraska. Northwest of Imperial, Nebraska or 20 miles south of the Headquarters there is a 7000 head organic Dairy being built. There is a plan to expand this operation in the future. This farm also has the potential to be converted into an organic farm operation. With deep fertile soils, local access to manure and compost, good irrigation and good rainfall this farm is highly suited for organics. The Jessen Farm is one of the best operations I have ever seen. Its property runs from Western Chase County to Southwest Perkins County. It is comprised of level dryland and quality irrigated fields. It is almost wheat harvest time, and the crops are some of the best I have seen. The improvements are in great shape and all of the machinery is clean and the operation is very well run. There are five building sites throughout the farm. The headquarters features a “home place” second to none in the area. Quite simply, you must see it to appreciate it. It is located 1 mile west of Grant, Nebraska and features a beautiful custom built home with four car attached garage and a metal shop building, which would be very impressive anywhere in farm country. The headquarters is located in part of the NW l/4 of Section 15, Tl ON, R39W, Perkins County. These improvements were built in 2010 and are in very good condition. The second site is located in the SWl/4 of Section 3, Tl0N, R40W, Perkins County. Building improvements include (2) metal buildings, an open sided storage shed and 29,000 bushels of grain bin storage. The third site is located in part of the SE1/4SE1/4 of Section 36, Tl IN, R40W, Perkins County. Building improvements include an older house and utility building. The fourth site is located in the SWl/4 of Section 15, Tl IN, R41W, Perkins County. Building improvements include an older house and utility building. The fifth site is located in part of the SEl/4 of Section 9, T7N, R40W, Chase County. Building improvements include a metal building, quonset and a 165,000 bushel grain storage facility. Grant, Nebraska has a population of 1165 people. It is the county seat of Perkins, County. They built a new high school a few of years ago and a new addition to the hospital. They have also expanded the airport to handle small jets. Doctors and other medical specialists fly into Grant on a regular basis to five medical care to patients. This is an excellent area to raise a family. Neighboring towns of Imperial and Holyoke are similar and offer excellent services as well and are located within 30 minutes. The improvements on the property are well kept and very serviceable. In short, I believe this is one of the best properties, when judged by the lay of the land, condition and quality of the soils and improvements, and farming practices that I have ever seen. I am proud and honored to have the Jessen’s entrust our company with the marketing of this property.
