Mason & Morse Ranch Company has announced the upcoming auction of over 15,500 acres of top-quality cropland in the northwest territory of Kansas. The size of the acreage being set for absolute auction sale represents one of the largest amounts of cropland acres ever offered at auction at one time in western Kansas.
The acquisition of farmland as an investment continues to grow as the productive land produces stable and desirable returns to investors and farmland operators. Top-quality farmers lease land paying attractive cash rents to the owners. The interest in farmland as investment is attractive to both individuals and institutions alike. As other sectors of the economy struggle, attractive investments are difficult to find. U.S. farmland offers an alternative investment which produces stable cash return generated from the sale of crops in national and international markets. In addition to farmland’s long-term and stable appreciation record, farmland has historically been a solid hedge against inflation.
The multi-parcel auction format provides an opportunity for investors and farmers to purchase individual tracts or bulk combinations of high-quality farmland capable of growing corn, wheat, milo, beans and sunflowers. The farmland is made up of high-quality soils, has most mineral rights in tact and also offers future potential for wind energy development.
Mason & Morse Ranch Company, a leader in agriculture and recreation property sales, is cooperatively marketing the property with Farm and Ranch Realty, Inc. of Colby, Kansas. The auction will be held December 2, 2010 in Colby, Kansas at the City Limits Convention Center.
