This 15.73 acres located just outside of Rushville, IL is a perfect opportunity to buy a fully functional, turn-key Live Stock Sale barn. This property has been operated as a sale barn for many years and is now available for purchase. The building system covers approximately 1 acre, and is completely setup with catch pens, holding stalls, loading chutes, an auction ring, a small restaurant, and an office area. The office area is already equipped with the necessary computer software and security cameras, to make sure the operation runs flawlessly. The facilities on this property could make it possible to move 1,000 to 1,500 head of livestock in a single auction. The previous owner has made an outstanding network of local farmers in the area, and on average ran 14,000 to 19,000 head of livestock through this operation each year.
The drive way and parking area is large enough to support large livestock trailers and semis, and the facilities are equipped with the necessary chutes, ramps, aisles, and catch pens to load and unload all forms of livestock. There is an arena setup for roping, and barrel racing as well as a pasture area that could be turned into tillable acreage.
Over the past several years, this sale barn has had a weekly auction capable of selling anything necessary to operate a farm; cattle, swine, horses, goats, sheep, fence supplies, horse tac, hay, straw, you name it, and this has been the place to sell it.
With a little bit of work the catch pens and gates could be removed from the buildings and this could be operated as a potential feed lot, or simply used as dry storage for farm equipment, heavy machinery, and so much more.
