Cattlemen, Sportsman, Hunters of all types!! Since the late
1800’s when the Midwest’s rich prairies were first grazed for livestock there has been a
plow not far behind. Over time these rich grasslands have slowly disappeared as well as
the cowboy lifestyle that came with it. Especially here in Northwestern Iowa it has
become increasingly hard to find good grass pasture for cattle or sheep. This land
shares a name with 2 prominent cattle families. Colonel Frank Gothier (world famous
mink rancher and homesteader) and its current owners Big Richard Petersen and his son,
Matt. They have been all over the West and are respected in many cattle communities in
those Western States as well as here at home. Great Cattlemen!!
This 177 +/- acre pasture represents a rare opportunity to buy a nice chunk of grass
for cattle with the ponds, good fences, corrals, pens and a barn. Rich and Matt have run
about 40 head of Cow/Calf pairs each year and kept the grass up as well as cleared a lot
of trees to enhance grazing. This should be a cattleman and livestock owners dream. If
you want to remain in the Cattle business of any kind, cow/calf, yearlings, or even a
sheep operation this could be your key to a bright future.
Hunters and Outdoor enthusiasts take note! Anyone who knows anything about big
whitetails knows that the Anthon area and the surrounding hills yield Monster Bucks!!
Imagine your own private 177 acres retreat that you can develop with some food plots,
stands by water holes and a lot more!! Especially nice is the fact that what you don’t hunt
can be leased for livestock. How does it get any better than that? Your own hunting
mecca that pays its own way. No more leasing hunting ground, paying expensive guide
services; you’ll have your very own paradise. Put a little hunting cabin up for you and
your family or hunting buddies and enjoy sitting by the campfire at night to tell tall tales
and make lifelong memories!
All these things can be yours if you have the fortitude and foresight to become the
proud new owner. I don’t think you will ever regret it unless you let it slip away.
