Property Description

The Wegener Farm is located across Western Perkins and Northwest Chase Counties in Western Central Nebraska,  with it’s headquarters situated in Venango.  This magnificent farm is a dryland operation containing 5176 acres spread over a 23 mile area.   In short, this is amazing farm country.

The farm headquarters includes a 1,650 sq. foot brick home with double attached garage, basement, and upstairs. The insulated shop is 60’x100’ and heated with office, bathroom, and shower. The machinery storage building is steel frame 250’x120’ and has 2 large overhead doors. There is a 60’x100’ insulated curvet building with large overhead door, a 50’x 80’ building for storage with large overhead door with a gravel floor, and a 50’x20’ utility building with dirt floor. There are 3 new 50,000 BU grain bins with full aeration floors and 10 inch unload augers. 

Mike Wegener has spent 15 +/- years gathering up these highly productive properties,  purchasing only excellent, level dryland.  He states that he “ …began with 2 quarters and 1 hired man and now farms 35 quarters and still has 1 hired man.”  He says that “…it’s time to slow down”.

Venango has impressive bragging rights of loading more railroad cars of grain than any elevator in the nation. There are five grain elevators on the railroad that are in close vicinity to the farm which give competitive bids for grain. The area also has several feedlots where you can contract silage, hay and grain, and there is an ethanol plant at Madrid that also buys corn and where you can buy wet distillers grain.  These elevators and feedlots are in a thirty five mile radius of the farm.  This area is also an excellent area to set up a cattle feeding operation.  You could grow your own silage, hay and grain to feed your own cattle or start a custom feeding operation.   The farm is centrally located between three major beef packing plants.  This area of Nebraska raises several million bushels of grain each year and the close location to markets make this an ideal location to feed cattle.  In addition, northwest of Imperial, Nebraska, just 20 miles southeast of the Headquarters, there is a 7000 head organic Dairy being built that is planning to expand it’s operation in the future.  This farm also has the potential to be converted into an organic farm operation.  With deep fertile soils, local access to manure and compost, and good rainfall, this farm is highly suited for organics. 

Located less than an hour from famous Lake McConaughy, and nearby Ogallala situates the farming operation near popular recreational destinations and strong farming country.  Grant, Nebraska which is the county seat of Perkins County, is a short 20 minutes east of Venago, and has a population of 1165 people.  They built a new high school a couple of years ago and a new addition to the hospital.  They have also expanded the airport to handle small jets.  Doctors and other medical specialists fly into Grant on a regular basis to  provide medical care to patients.  This is an excellent area to raise a family.  Neighboring towns of Imperial and Holyoke are similar and offer excellent services as well and are located within 30 minutes.  The opportunities are endless!
