The farm facility sits on 3.76 acres in Park County, Wyoming just 98 miles south of Billings, MT. The Big Horn Basin produces millions of tons of hay and grain and this farm is a large contributor of that production.
The Cox & Fisher Farm is a highly productive farm yielding significant amounts of crops each year. One of the major features to this farm is its available abundance of district water. The farm offers excellent irrigation from the Shoshone Irrigation District. Over the years the current owners have intensely improved and developed this farm to produce a highly productive farm with modern facilities and grain storage to maximize the farms production and efficiency.
Centrally located on the farm are five grain storage bins that hold 31,000 bushels of grain storage with a 65 elevator. The main priority with the bins is a facility that is safe, keeps grain dry, and has air dryers on 16,000 bushels. These bins offer the farmer the option of selling the crop for later delivery at a price that sometimes exceeds the current markets. The farms location offers the producer numerous grain elevators and livestock grow yards and feed lots to seek competitive bids on grain. Most livestock feed yards and grain elevators are a short drive from the farms headquarters for ease of transportation of grain.
Additional improvements to the farm include a 60 x 100 steel hay shed with asphalt floor, 20 sidewalls for clean, dry hay storage. The farm facility also has a hay container shipping station.
The property has 18,000 gallons of fertilizer storage and 11,000 gallons fuel storage. The farm lease will also include 304 shares of Western Sugar Cooperative.
There is a double-wide house in good condition located on the property. Double-wide is owned by one of the farm employees and can be purchased separately.
