Real Estate

The FSA acreage on this farm is measured at approximately 199 acres and currently 60 acres are in row crops with the balance of 139 acres in hay and pasture ground.
As always, it is up to any potential buyer to decide which if any of the pastures or hay ground might be suitable for row crops if that inclination is there to change the farms production status.
When you look this farm over you will find that it lays well, its fences are maintained and the farming practices solid over the years, with soil that is suitable for increased row cropping.
The cattle barns and grain bin are in good condition and water is plentiful. The house that still stands on the property is uninhabitable.
This will be one of the very best farms to sell in the Odessa area in 2014.  From our prospective having sold other farms in this area, we believe this will be a buyer's opportunity to purchase a great farm that has unlimited potential.

  • Odessa School District
  • West Central Electric Utilities

Auctioneer's Note  
Jake and Wayne Shively are the second generation Shivelys to farm this land before turning it over to the current tenant and moving to Minnesota and Virginia respectively. It has been a prosperous well-kept farm that has served the families that operate it well. The need to liquidate the farming assets has opened the door for prospective buyers to purchase a great livestock and row crop farm with a great location being only a mile and a half Northwest of Odessa, MO. We hope you will be with us sale day, visit with the Shiveleys and exercise your option to own this farm.
