Auctioneer Comments: 

The Hickory Cattle Company operation is set up to be an extremely profitable, efficient cattle ranch. In our current market it is very rare to find a property capable of running 700+ cow/calf pairs with low input costs that can be run with little man power. While cattle prices are at record levels this property will provide large returns per acre to capitalize on the hot market in a much shorter time frame than traditional ranches can offer. The property will sell absolute to the highest bidder so be sure and be in attendance.
