Wow 2023 is getting off to a good start with a really nice Stanton township farm. Harold and his family took a lot of pride in their land when they farmed it and the current tenant is no different and has cared for the farm as if it was his own. The Tooker Farm is superbly located just a couple of minutes from Merrill’s Ethanol Plant, Hinton’s excellent Grain Markets, and Le Mars as well and probably 20 minutes from Sioux City’s Terminal Markets. Also located in the heart of Plymouth Counties huge livestock feeding industry gives you a ton of marketing options. A must for maximum efficiency and survival in today’s aggressive agriculture environment.
The Plymouth County FSA office shows 124.63 Cropland Acres with a 93.1-acre corn base with a 175 bu. PLC Yield Index and a 26.9-acre soybean base with a 48 bu. PLC Yield Index. The farm is currently enrolled in the ARC County Program. The Plymouth County NRCS Office and Assessors Office shows the main soil types to be Galva and Radford with a smaller amount of Ida. The weighted CSR II Average is 76 with approximately 77% of the farm averaging in the mid 80’s.
As time goes by and we have the benefit of hindsight showing us what decades of care for the land can provide for the future we can really appreciate a farm like the Tooker Farm. If you will follow in the footsteps of those who are currently operating it and who have shown such devotion to farming and the land. This farm will prove to be one you too will be extremely proud to have as part of your operation for years to come. Good luck to all from myself, Bruce, and all of us at Brock Auction Company.
