GENERAL DESCRIPTION:  Viewing this pasture lets you know the Flint Hills are alive and well. This rolling hills pasture has a cover of native bluestem and mixed grasses that has that beautiful bronze color as if a carpet were blanketing the hills.  The only trees in the pasture are in the valley along the draws which is where you would expect them and where they can give livestock protection in the winter and provide wildlife habitat.  With this wet fall and winter every draw has water in them, and the two nice stock ponds are full and have been kept up in good shape, also a spring in the east draw provides water approximately 90% of the time, this provides adequate water for the livestock.

The pasture is fenced with steel and hedge barb wire fencing that is average to above average condition. There are no improvements to keep up or pay taxes upon, this is a user-friendly pasture-ready for top gains in the cattle business. The access is with a good county road 400 and if one would want improvements the electric utility runs along the west side.  From atop the bluestem hills one can see for miles across the Rock Creek Valley. This is a unique and beautiful area of the Scenic Flint Hills of Kansas.

For the sportsman, the timbered draw in the east side which finds its way to the Rock Creek valley is great wildlife habitat for deer & game birds yet keeps the integrity of the livestock grazing program.
