A hay production paradise!  This prolific full quarter of hay land has excellent access along the main county road providing access to put up the crop and haul it away with ease.  The roll of this ground is slight, but it has massive character and boasts with high hay production.



Parcel 3:

Acres:  160 +/-

Legal Description: SW¼  24-143-100

Crop Acres:  114.38 +/-

This hunting paradise is not only highlighted by the 114.38 +/- acres of extremely productive cropland that was planted to wheat in 2020, but also features the deep tree-lined draws on the east side that has been carved by the winding Whitetail Creek that flows through this property.  This hunting draw certainly ads character but moreover provides an exceptional habitat for big game in western North Dakota.
