LOCATION: The Smith Farm and Ranch is located in Floyd County north of Ralls in the Texas Panhandle.
HISTORY: This property has been operated by the same family for over 40 years and has been extremely well managed throughout the years. From the level Plains native pasture to partially irrigated and dry cropland, the Smith Farm & Ranch offers a unique opportunity to own a quality farming/livestock operation in this area.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: This property has 3,198.52 acres of native pasture, 1,135 acres of irrigated cropland and 715 acres of dry cropland. The native pasture is level Plains shortgrass country with carefully managed grass turf throughout. The majority of the property has deep fertile soils suitable to be placed in cultivation, if there is interest in expanding the current farming operation.
A total of approximately 1,850 acres of the Smith Farm & Ranch are in cultivation, with approximately 1,135 acres being irrigated by six (6) center pivots and twenty-one (21) irrigation wells. The remaining cultivated land is operated on a dryland basis. The terrain throughout this area of the ranch varies from nearly level to very gently sloping, with the primary soil being Pullman clay loam, 0-1% slopes. (All acreage figures are +/-)
The grass turf throughout the native pasture is in excellent condition, with very little to no mesquite. The entire ranch has been under a mesquite control program for many years.
The ranch is fenced and cross‐fenced with the majority of the fencing being in good condition.
