On Feb. 9 2010 they're auctioning a 49000 head cap. cattle feedlot near Ainsworth Ne. along with several acres of irrigated farmland and recreational land. Click on the realtors site and then click on the upcoming auction. The file is large and takes several minutes to download but is somewhat educational, for me anyway, in terms of Ne. irrigation.
I have a feeling in the next year or two this kind of thing will probably be a continuing trend or should I say fallout from the spiked grain prices of last year, either way it's not good to see. I wonder if they'll restructure and keep just the feedlot?
They sold their farm near Atkinson Ne. last fall. They are selling their machinery in Atkinson on an auction (Feb. 4th). They got too big too fast. They bought alot of high priced corn in the past couple of years. I think the farmground and feedlot will probably sell to the same person.
