Build upon a fully-furnished cattle feedlot operation decades in the making. This turnkey operation is ready for you on day one. Youll only need a few minutes on our property to discover why Peoples Company is proudly presenting this Decatur County gem located just 3.5 miles south of Leon, and a quick drive to the amenities of the Des Moines metro area. Located on Nature Road for good reason, its painted landscape of over 156 acres contains a colorful palate of wild trees, flowers, grassland and reclusive grandeur intermingled with a fully functional 4,500 head custom commercial cattle feedlot operation. This treasured property is the rare opportunity that gets us excited: a well-established blend of land, dwellings, feedlots, pastures and sturdy fencing. Lets start with the 22 covered cattle buildings. Several contain concrete floors with 6,000 feet m/l of concrete bunks throughout the farm. Separate feedlots provide cover from Iowas unpredictable weather, with metal roofs for shade. Two homes rest comfortably on the spacious landscape, with an owners ranch consisting of 3 bedrooms, one full bath, 2-car garage and a finished basement. A second home on the property similarly offers 3 bedrooms with one full bathroom and a partial basement. This is a farmstead built to the manager, with a 60 x 80 foot shop building a short walking distance from the main home. Multiple other buildings dot the landscape, safely tucking away your machinery and equipment. Feed availability is a priority, with a large concrete bunk pit and 3 bays for storage, and a large covered grain and feed ingredient storage area with easy access for incoming trucks. An office at the main facility has year-round capabilities, outfitted with heat and AC. This operation caters to logistical ease: two certified scales, and multiple load-out facilities for semis. A full-line of late-model machinery and equipment used in daily operations is available for purchase as well, as is additional land that borders the feedlot farmland. The sellers have meticulously cared for and managed this custom feedlot for over 20 years, building and maintaining a solid, long-term trust with their clients. Current workers and staff are committed to assisting the new owners during the transition. Multiple signs will show you the way to the property, and its only a matter of time before a sold sign will join them.
