HILLSBORO, Illinois (February 26, 2021) — Approximately 899 acres of productive farmland in Illinois’ Montgomery and St. Clair counties will be offered at auction Saturday, March 27, with Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company marketing the land and conducting the auction.
The land will be offered with 2021 farming rights in 20 tracts, ranging from one acre to 126 acres. It includes approximately 725 acres of tillable land, and several tracts include a combination of tillable land and wooded areas.
“This land is well suited to either local operators or to investors, and our system of bidding enables bidders to make offers on any combination of tracts based on their needs,” said R.D. Schrader, president of the auction company.
