Auctioneer’s Note Dan Clark Auction & Realty, LLC has been given the honor to sell at an 
No Reserve public auction this very attractive parcel of land that could serve as an excellent 
addition to any livestock operation as well as a hunting or investment property. This property 
will be sold by the acre, based on the acres as stated on the Tripp County Treasurer tax records, 
with the acres understood to be “more or less”. This is one of the best quality properties we have 
had the opportunity to offer in quite some time considering the combination of the agricultural 
production and recreational opportunities it provides.
This property has abundant grass, water, and wildlife!
With two miles of the Keya Paha River crossing through the south end of the ranch, along with 
several stock dams, there is never a worry about the cattle running short of fresh water. 
The ranch typically runs 300 to 350 cow/calf pairs and generates approximately $90,000+ in 
annual rental income. Cross fences divide the ranch into five parcels along with of vast open 
upland prairies (free of invasive cedar trees and brush seen in neighboring pastures); 
wooded oak lined canyons providing shade for the livestock and acorns and shelter for wildlife; 
and quiet river bottom clearings.  
 Affordable South Dakota real estate taxes are also a significant advantage of ownership when 
compared to other ranch properties. This is a unique opportunity to make a high-quality land 
investment! Call for more details!
