The Hefner North Unit is a property that has not been offered for sale in over half a century! This historic offering has been under superb land management practices and has served well as a cattle ranch. With modernized grazing techniques, strategically placed water and pasture fences, the Hefner North Unit is in excellent condition, even in a dry year.
The offering includes 405.29+/- acres of grass land. A portion of the property has been used in hay production in recent years. There is a good mix of legumes, gamma grasses, and warm season grasses.
Convenient access to the property is available from Avalanche Rd., a county maintained gravel road that leads directly into Sturgis, SD, about five miles to the south. With the beautiful Whitewood Valley starting on the West boundary of the property, and unmatched views of Bear Butte and the Northern Black Hills, the Hefner North Unit truly is in a special location, yet with lots of room to breathe.
