Many options come with this nice, renovated starter farm a few miles east of Picture Butte with almost 80 Acres of well drained productive land. This farm is currently in use as a dairy operation with a permit for 85 milking cows, 88 free stalls (not all installed yet), a totally renovated 2 x 5 herringbone milking parlour etc. Sizes of the dairy barn complex (m/l): 77 x 30ft, 81 x 44ft, 97 x 102ft. There are several corrals for young stock and dry cows, plus a 32 x 101ft machine / hay storage shed. The farm includes a concrete silage pit, 40 x 100ft, 12ft high, plus a concrete lagoon, 58 x 75ft. 6.5ft deep.
The farm can definitely be used for other purposes as well, for example horses, sheep, calf raising, other business activities etc. The irrigated land (approx. 68 Acres) is currently seeded to alfalfa/grass for forage production, but it can be used for other crops as well. The irrigation system is hooked up to a pressurized pipe line of the LNID, 67-69 psi pressure, which is ample pressure for the 3 wheel lines, no pump required, which is a real money saver! A Nelson valve and timer on the irrigation system help to partly automate things and further reduce time and costs to irrigate.
There is a heated work shop on the property, 40x48feet, with overhead door and concrete floor, ideal for a trucker.
The house on the well treed yard comes with an attractive sunroom / office addition. There are 5 bedrooms in this house, 3 upstairs and 2 downstairs, with room for another two in the basement. Windows, doors, siding (Hardy plank) and 2/3 of the roof shingles have been replaced in recent years. The property is hooked up to Lethbridge city water (via the LNCPWC water co-op, 1 unit)!
Last but not least, this farm is located on a very central spot, close to town, and only 2 miles from Highway 25 and Highway 519.
Included in the listing price: LNID water rights: 79.8 Acres. All irrigation equipment: 3 wheel lines, main line, pump, Nelson valve plus timer. Home appliances: fridge, stove, dishwasher. Excluded from the listing: curtains in sunroom, Dutch light fixtures.
