Auctioneer's Remarks: We're very pleased to be chosen to conduct this auction on behalf of the Bradke Estate.  Russell passed away in August last year at age 89, and Virginia passed away March of this year.  They were both proud of their agriculture heritage and received several conservation awards (we're told in high school Russell started contour farming and some of those strips are still in place today).  The core of this land is the family farm (a Century plus farm) so there can be no question this is a history changing auction.  Being offered in 3 tracts by taxable acres without survey …. only the north/south west line of Tract #3 will be marked …. all other perimeters will be existing fencing be them as they may.


FSA and NRCS Records:  Many of these items are on our web page.  Additionally, written permission has been given to both offices to open their records to you.  Should you have any questions concerning the contouring, CRP, or other, you can stop at their office at 200 South 12th Street – Manchester, Iowa (south of Wal-Mart).


Inspection:  You can drive by and/or over at your convenience and sole good sense.  Viewing of the house and buildings only on Saturday November 25th from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM - - - no other private showings.


For each tract 100% of the CRP payments received in 2018 become the property of the purchaser with all rights and responsibilities transferring to the purchaser at time of closing.
