Knowing what a charmer Shameless must be to not be locked up already. They will test that no money bail out and he walks away again.

Careful, some of us might get friendly with that new neighbor of yours and have him cite you for willful intent when that machine gets out of line!

Thank you all....I now know who my new neighbors will be and so far I like them! Dad's house also sold, the house will be entertaining a new set of little kids with all the love that house provided for other families kids thru the years. I did provide alot of info on each parcel of land that sold to the new buyers, they all thanked me for that info! I even told the one about the BIG rock i found while plowing one day! and told another about not V-ripping the ground he just bought, unless he wanted to replace all the tile in that field that the auction company never mentioned! he really appreciated that! depending on who brings the beer on any certain days, I think we'll all be one big happy family....without the stockholders!

Oh, my mistake, I was thinking you were getting a smaller portion of the sale proceeds along with the land.  We were all looking forward to helping you spend it!  Hopefully someone other then the green guys will be farming the land next to you, maybe someone who respects the land and not just a crop miner.
I'm sure we will be more then happy to help you design your new house and give advice on how you should do it...

Oh, and I guess I don't have to go over to the stakeholder's place near me any more and write obscene comments on his lawn with Roundup?

I'm not for certain why O'keefe is doing what they are doing, but right now I applaude them for it. I do like seeing some of the land returning to the original way it was long ago. They apparently are not interested in profiting from any crops that could be grown on all the land they have been buying. maybe it's for an investment on land values down the road? God isn't making anymore ground, maybe it's their way of preserving what's out there that's left? Plus it should improve wildlife habitat alot!

Shameless I for one am glad you went to the auction. You know who bought it and the prices. You know who your neighbors are. With the family situation as you have stated it, maybe for the best. And now I hope you have some kind of closure and can move  on to your next journey with some peace knowing it's yours to do what you want. Go stand on your ground, smile and say this is MINE!! Good luck in the future.

lol...John! I was completly not involved with the auction. I retained my 1/3 of the farm ground last Sept was the ownership time. this auction was for the stockholders selling off their ground. what was left of Dad's and Grandpa's farm.   there was 3 tracts left: 27 acres, 126 acres, and 81 acres. auction results were: $5150/acre, $11,600/acre, $9300/acre respectivly. they still have alot of expencises coming out of that money yet. plus taxes. the big green farmers did not buy any of it. 2 of the parcels will be farmed by others, and one parcel was purchased by Okeefe Elevator Company. they have been buying up alot of farm ground in the area and they then turn it into grasslands, no more farming of crops. they have 1000's of acres around here so far. I had alot of folks approch me at the auction asking if they could farm my ground? I told all of them NO! oh....and if any of ya'll will be selling your farm ground in the future....I would not recommend Farmers National Company to sell it. this was a pretty crude auction and they're advertising on the sale really sucked! I'm glad I was not involved in this sale.  well....other than what I retained, the rest of Dad's and Grandpa's farm is gone forever! I'm glad I was able to keep some of it. I still cherish it!

I went to the auction site but it no longer lists your place.  Inquiring minds need to know how much money you will be spending on the new house, and the pretty machine?

Glad to hear you got to keep most of your equipment and part of the property, sounds like you are starting a new chapter in a new book of life with the new house, building dams and waterways and all. Id close the old book on that last chapter, skip the auction, fire up "the machine" the night before the auction and let it run all the next day, in your general area of course.

thanks everyone for your nice thoughts! there isn't any equipment on the auction, the equipment that was used for years belonged to me and i kept most of it when in first retired, i would like to attend the auction just to see who the vultures are. I retained approx 1/3 of the farm along with some cash. I have owned it now since Sept 30th. no more association with the stockholders. they have no more hold on my property either. been busy cutting out alot of trees, fixing on the house, changing things around outside, the crops are all out, gotta drive back behing and see where we wanna build. the house on the auction was grandpas house, he built it in 1902. i have the saw he used to saw the lumber for the house and all the out buildings on that place....that aren't there anymore...because of the stockholders! just the house was left and they wanted to bull doze that too, til i stepped in and offered bodily harm! yes   John the taxes are high here, Nebraska...the tax me state! lol. sooooooo.....I missed out becoming a millionaire, but we are happy  now! we also haven't had much rain here this year either, and i wanted to disk the bean ground so it would soak up any rain we might get this fall rather than it running off the hard packed ground. a buddy let me use his big ole 4x4 dualed up articulating tractor with a 35 ft disk, wow was that a sweet ride, sure felt good to be back in the field again! sure didn't take long to disk it all up, it came up just fine powder. we did get some rain last night and it looks good out there, no washing. I will have to replant my waterways  that the big green farmers tore out. and replace one dam they also tore out cuz their planter didn't fit going around it. PffffffT!

Shameless, how are you feeling about the upcoming auction?  I'm surprised at how high the property taxes are, $83 per acre.  In my part of Colorado they are $38 which is about double what they were 20 years ago. 
Thinking of you, stay strong!
