Waurika, Oklahoma



7,000± acres
(Includes 1,000 ± Acres Private leased land)



Waurika is located at the intersection of Highway 81 & 70 in southern Oklahoma about 50 miles west of Interstate 35. The headquarters for this high volume beef production outfit are approximately 6 miles southeast of Waurika. The property is comprised of 7,000 ± acres nearly all contiguous (including 1,000 acres of leased land that is mostly native grass), with 3,300 acres being cropland that is used to grow winter wheat. The balance of the deeded land, about 2,700 acres, is grass land of mostly native species and some Bermuda. The farm runs between 8,000 and 10,000 head annually. The property includes 30 miles of new fences along with steel gates, numerous water ponds and an excellent set of pens at the headquarters in addition to 5 other sets of improved working pens. This farm was laid out to maximize beef production in the most efficient way possible. The fencing pattern was designed for ease of cattle movement utilizing minimal staff. The native grass traps allow for a place to straighten the cattle out before putting them on the wheat fields, which also have a 20’ buffer of Bermuda grass on their perimeters. The modern headquarters has a large shop building, a set of scales (1 of 3 sets on the farm), a covered arena and two stall barns in addition to the owner’s home. This farm is situated in an area that qualifies it for an accelerated depreciation schedule.
