Acreage: The property consists of 370 contiguous acres, 110 of which is tillable hay-land currently enrolled into the Conservation Reserve Safe Program. The topography ranges from upland benches with thick stands of hay to deep but gentle grassy draws.
Hunting: The wildlife is abundant and range from big game to game birds. Over the years, many trophy whitetail and mule deer have been taken, while the springy draws and upland cover provide exceptional habitat for game birds such as pheasant and grouse.
Water: In addition to two small ponds, a natural live water spring has been developed to flow into a tank and then continue down a long draw on the property, providing an ideal water source for livestock, gamebirds and wildlife. Domestic water is provided by the Lyman Jones Rural Water System, which runs into and adjacent to the property.
Operation: The property is further enhanced by a Conservation Reserve Program contract, which covers 110 acres and will pay over $5,700 per year through 2027. The CRP contract allows for limited haying or grazing with a 25% offset in payment, on only the acres hayed or grazed, which is an exceptional benefit given the alfalfa and grass that’s been established.
Access: Access to the property is superb and provided by Powell Rd to the east, and the adjoining US Hwy 14 to the north. The Powell Rd. West is conveniently located just a few minutes east of the small town of Philip, SD.
