It’s a new year and we’re getting into gear for our 2014 sales. We’re starting to schedule them (see below for our latest lineup) and have more in the works. So keep an eye on our schedule, and if if you’re thinking of an auction, we’d love to help you make the most of it. To discuss what we might be able to do, please call Piroutek Auction Service any time at 605-544-3316.
As always, more details of our upcoming auctions are available here, or see below for the highlights.
• Fri. Feb. 28, Jackson County, SD, 1 PM (MT): This outstanding working ranch and farm has it all. Nearly 2,700 acres of excellent pasture and productive farmland, with a scenic home and barn on the site, located two miles from Kadoka and just off I-90. This is a great opportunity for a good cattle operation, with grass that’ll put on the pounds. There’s 1,288 acres of pasture and trees, 888 in hay, 260 in stubble and 224 planted with winter wheat. The house is an updated four-bedroom with fireplace, bonus office, and a beautiful lighted covered patio with stamped concrete, all on 133 acres with pastureland. It’s a place you’ll want to see. It comes with a 40×80 red “Morton” barn, corrals with steel fence, grain bins, wells, stock dams and White Willow Creek running through the entire property. Horses and kids love this place, and it’s good for hunting, too. The site will be offered in seven tracts or as one unit. Pictures and more details are available here.
• Mon. Mar. 17, Prime Western South Dakota Ranchland: The 12,000-acre “Seven Blackfoot Ranch” is a great piece of land for a working ranch, hunting and more. This site along Indian Springs Creek, Spotted Bear Creek and Bear Council Draw is versatile and well-suited for all sorts of uses. It’s an outstanding ranch that would be a great fit for many cattle operations. The grass will pack pounds on your cattle and showcase production of calves or yearlings. It’s highly productive farmland, too, with soil ratings as high as 80. It’s raised 100 bu. corn and 70 bu. wheat and has good dams and water. It’s also a great spot for hunting. The Grand Cedar Home and Lodge makes ranchers or hunters feel right at home. Its wraparound porch highlights some of the best views in western South Dakota and the land has good mule deer hunting, whitetails, pheasants, turkeys and more. This land will be offered in eight tracts of 600 to 2600 acres, or as one unit. All will be sold at absolute auction to the highest bidder. Click here for pictures and more.
• Mon. March 24, Pennington County, SD, 1 PM (MT): Good quality western South Dakota farmland to be sold at absolute auction. 320 acres, with a favorable lease for more. This ground, west of Wall and north of Quinn, has been in the Ike Kelly family for a long time and Ike homesteaded it. But his daughters no longer live in the area, so they’ve decided to sell two-thirds of it, and lease out the other third. So, for sale is 320 acres – 100 in alfalfa, 104 in native sod that would make good farm ground and 116 in native pasture land. The winning bidder will also have first option on a three-year lease for 160 more acres of pasture land at $10 an acre. It’s good ground for hunting (deer, antelope, pheasant, grouse, wild turkeys) with easy access along a gravel road and near the paved Quinn road. Rich, fertile soil and both level and rolling farm ground with a water pipeline and a stock dam. We’ll have a showing and guided tour March 3 from 1-2 or call any time to schedule a private tour.
