Description: The Farview Ranch is a one-of-a-kind property with so much to offer. The current
owner has owned the ranch for over 30 years and has continued to make improvements, apply
conservation practices, and make wildlife enhancements resulting in a premier South Dakota
estate. I don't know where you could find a more diversified operation consisting of productive
cropland, high quality grassland, working ranch facilities, a majestic custom built log home,
trophy whitetail deer, waterfowl hunting, turkey hunting, outstanding fishing, and spectacular
views as far as you can see along the two miles of the Missouri River frontage.
The ranch consists of approximately 162 acres of hayland (143.92 acres of newly seeded alfalfa in 2018) and 480
acres of grassland, timber, and the highly improved building site. The pasture is leased for the 2019 grazing
season. The cropland is leased through 2020. Additional lease details are available upon request.
The owner has historically wintered 500 cows on the ranch along with 300 feeder calves and replacement heifers.
The feedlot facilities include fenceline bunks, automatic waterers & tire tanks, pipe corral fences, a covered
working facility, steel loading chute and trailer loadout, sorting pens, hospital pens, and a large calving barn.
Water to the home, feedlot, and pastures is provided by a well at the building site, along with an extensive
pipeline system throughout the pasture serving numerous tire tank sites and automatic waterers. The east and
west pastures also offer two live streams flowing throughout. Future potential hookups from the B-Y Rural Water
system are available along the north end of the ranch.
The owner rates the annual pasture capacity at 75 cow/calf pairs for five months. An additional 50 yearling
heifers were also grazing during the late summer of 2018 due to the abundance of grass. Abundant water provided
to the pastures include two streams, numerous flowing springs, and a pipeline serving several hydrants with tire
tanks. The pasture is cross fenced and has excellent hardwood timber providing shade and protection for the
