Here are two-quarters of farmland located just six miles northwest of the Curling Arena in the town of Viking, Alberta.  These quarters are located on the farmland side of an area with ranch land situated to the West and prime farmland to the East. 

The economics of this half section are rock solid with Surface Lease Income in the amount of $3,800 per annum - before you even start an engine.  Add this to the current pasture rental of $1,500 per year, and the aggregate passive income covers a significant portion of the interest on any mortgage. ‘Play the Double’ is truly that swing half-section; the high bidder will have the hammer when deciding the highest and best use to make of these two quarters.  This half-section of land offers the perfect opportunity to produce silage and run livestock, or throw some weight to the inputs on the 250 acres of cultivated land and reap the benefits coming home.  At today's commodity prices, coupled with advances in agronomics over the past 20 years, you may find that ‘Play The Double’ turns a better profit at the end of the season than investing in land that might sell for multiples of the Starting Bid for this half-section.

‘Play the Double’ is located in an area of strong demand, and although short of rain this year, this half section has produced winning oat and canola crops in recent years.  If you believe in global warming and the grain belt moving north, the future of this half-section will be of keen interest to you.  While ‘Play The Double’ still needs rain, the heavy soil ensures it can bank the moisture and produce big crops without weekly showers.  Add these 250 cultivated acres to your existing land base without adding any additional equipment, and see the profit go straight to your bottom line.  The gross value of just two 60-bushel canola crops slides you nicely over the low Starting Bid for ‘Play the Double.’ 

The northwest quarter offers the ideal spot to build that sizeable rural estate; the future buyer may even want to consider subdividing off the site in the northwest corner that already has access to existing power and a water well.  This idyllic building site would be situated just 2.5 miles north of Highway 14.  Significant investment has been made in new fences around the 30 acres on this quarter.  These two quarters are truly team players and both will do their part to offer any buyer a winning experience for decades to come.
