This tract currently has an agricultural valuation and is being qualified by a grazing lease. As of the date of this writing Governor Perry has extended his drought emergency proclamation dated July 5, 2011 that states Lavaca County is drought stricken. This means that the potential buyer does not have to immediately place livestock on the land to continue to qualify it for appraisal purposes provided the intent of the buyer is to continue with some sort of agricultural qualifying activity including wildlife management use after the Governor officially declares that the drought has ended in Lavaca county.
At the time of the site visit, the habitat is recovering nicely due to the recent rains. There is a stock tank near the northern fenceline. The stocktank is being supplemented with ground water by means of a windmill. The tank is full and has growing aquatic vegetation and appears not ever having gone dry due to the drought.
There is electric power with a 200 amp connection on the property, an electric water well and a septic system are in place.
The property is a mixture of Live Oak and Blackjack Oak motts with scattered mesquite. 80% of the property is brush and 20% is open.
The property topography is relatively flat. Elevation at the gate is 169 feet MSL, the southern boundary “Supplejack Creek” is 149 feet MSL and at the western edge of the tract CR 424 is 150 feet MSL.
The property shape is similiar to the vertical stabilizer of an airplane with Supplejack Creek making up the southern boundary of this tract. The far west small section of the property is bordered by CR 424.
