Chas. S. Middleton Welcomes New Agent, Cooper Cogdell

Cooper Cogdell was born and raised on his family’s Tule Ranch located in Briscoe, Armstrong and Donley Counties. The Tule Ranch was originally a part of the historic JA Ranch before being purchased by Cooper’s great-grandfather in the 1950s. It is primarily located in the heart of the Palo Duro Canyon of the Texas Panhandle. Cooper’s family manages a cow/calf operation, as well as raises high-quality quarter horses to be used on the ranch and in the cutting horse arena.

In 2011, Cooper graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Agricultural and Applied Economics and a minor in Business. As a student Cooper was highly involved with the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team which claimed three straight National Championships. Cooper then went on to coach the team to its fourth national title, while also working toward a Masters degree in Agribusiness.

While in graduate school, Cooper had the opportunity to intern for Chas. S. Middleton and Son. During this time he was responsible for creating ranch maps and putting together listing brochures. He also gained an understanding of the farm and ranch real estate industry from a behind the scenes perspective. After graduation, Cooper was employed by PlainsCapital Bank in Lubbock, Texas, as a credit analyst where he helped assess loans for all types of businesses and individuals. At PlainsCapital, Cooper worked with great people and gained valuable experience in the banking industry and the lending process.

This past year, Cooper, his wife Holly and their one-year-old daughter McCrae moved back to the family ranch to begin their own operation. Alongside ranching, Cooper has teamed up with Chas. S. Middleton and Son to represent buyers and sellers of farm and ranch properties in the Panhandle and Rolling Plains regions of Texas. In addition to ranching and real estate, he enjoys competing in cutting and ranch horse competitions on horses his family has raised. Cooper also serves on the Ranching Heritage Association Board of Directors and the advisory committee for the Texas Tech Ranch Horse Team.

Charlie Middleton and Clint Robinson Q and A 11-16-2016Charlie Middleton and Clint Robinson Q and A 11-16-2016

Purchasing land, the lending process and working with Capital Farm Credit

Charlie: So Clint, you’ve been associated with Capital Farm Credit for a long time now, when did you get started and how have you seen the lending process progress and change through the years?

Clint: I have 32 years in the ag lending business. The majority of that time has been devoted to the financing of farm and ranch real estate.  The lending process certainly has changed through the years, from the regulatory reforms of the 1980’s all the way through to the more recent consumer credit regs that we have seen.  At the same time, there have been a lot of enhancements made to the lending process to make it considerably more efficient and borrower friendly.  When I look back through the years and consider all the changes, and even the challenges we’ve seen, I can say that agricultural property has been a proven investment, that can provide a rate return as well as appreciation over time. Our customers are very happy with that fact.

Charlie: That’s a great story.  You must have known early on that you wanted to be a lender affiliated with sales of agriculture based properties.  What led you to the Farm Credit System when you probably could have gone to work with a commercial bank in their Ag Department?

Clint: When I decided to go into lending, I knew that I wanted to be affiliated with a lender that specialized in ag lending as their primary business.  Farm Credit is that kind of lender so the choice for me was easy.  Helping people realize their dreams of farm and ranch real estate ownership has been my goal, and is what gives me tremendous job satisfaction.

Charlie: Tell me about your background and why you chose a career based on agriculture.

Clint: I’m a fifth generation Texan with a farming and ranching heritage.  My earliest memories as a child were going with my dad to feed cows or check on irrigation water.   And, I was pretty much raised on a tractor bailing hay or plowing, so when you come from that kind of background, you know that agriculture will be in your future.  Early on it was easy for me to see how important the land is to people in agriculture.  Later in life I was able to see how important the right kind of lender is to the success of an ag operaton.  I knew that I wanted to be that kind of lender for agriculture.

Charlie: I have always been fascinated with the lending process, why don’t you tell me a little bit about the process of borrowing money for the purchase of land, livestock or equipment from Capital Farm Credit?

Clint: First I would say it’s most important to select a lender that understands agriculture and your specific type of operation.  Sit down with that lender to discuss your goals and how you plan to achieve them.  From there, the typical application process usually involves providing financial information, income history and a description of the collateral offered.  On real estate loans, we will take care of the appraisal process and work directly with the title company and attorneys to insure a good closing. Customers not familiar with real estate transactions can sometimes be intimidated be the process, so we try to alleviate that concern by walking them through it step-by-step.

Charlie: How does Capital Farm Credit, and the farm credit system, compare with traditional lending, say from a commercial lending institution’s ag department?

Clint: The farm credit system was created 100 years ago to fill a need for a stable and dependable source of credit that specializes in agriculture.  It is owned and controlled by its member borrowers, and the design of the system allows for profits to be returned to its customers, effectively reducing the cost of doing business.  It’s a cooperative principal that has worked very well for a long time.  And as you know, land is a long- term investment, so the farm credit system’s access to long-term capital markets allow us to structure debt out over a longer term, making the payments more affordable.

Charlie: I have sold quite a few properties to people who have borrowed money from Capital Farm Credit, as well as other farm credit lenders, over the years and many of them tell me about a dividend payment they receive each year.  Explain to me how a lender can pay a dividend to a borrower.

Clint: That’s one of the advantages of borrowing from farm credit and one of the major principals of farm credit lending.  Since we are owned by our customers, profits are returned to it’s owners.   After the end of each year, the board of directors will make a determination as to how much of our net earnings can be paid back in cash to our borrowers, and how much in previous year’s earnings will be retired.  After capital requirements are met, designated earnings are returned to the borrower.   In the case of allocated equity retirements, many customers have seen retirement from these accounts continue well past the date their loan was paid in full.

Charlie: So basically what you’re telling me is that once they obtain a loan through Capital Farm Credit they become a stockholder in the company.  That seems like a great partnership. This dividend or patronage payment back to the borrower ultimately reduces their annual interest rate.

Clint: It’s a great partnership when your lender is owned and controlled by it’s member-borrowers.  The patronage payments received by the members have a definite impact in reducing the effective interest rates paid on loans.

Charlie: OK Clint, so say I have a really nice ranch listed for sale under the Caprock over here in Garza County, or Kent County, somewhere in your territory.  I have the ranch listed at a price that I feel is reasonable for the area and I show the property to a gentleman that feels that this particular ranch may be a good fit for him and his family.  Let’s just say they are what I may call a recreation ranch buyer, meaning they want to run a few cows, hunt deer and quail and build a weekend house that the family will enjoy.  Once they show signs of seriously being interested, the first thing that I will ask is “Are you working with a lender, and if so, have you been pre-qualified?”  Hopefully, they have done this, but in this scenario, let’s say they have not.  “That’s ok” I would likely tell him “Quite a few people that we sell property to have not been pre-qualified.  Are you considering any lender in particular?”  If he answers no, I would jump at the chance to point him to the farm credit system, and give him the contact information for lenders in that particular territory, assuring him that these are all quality people I have worked with in the past.

Clint: We are happy to work with any buyer on pre-qualification if they feel that will give them an advantage in negotiating a deal, or just provide piece of mind knowing they have already been working with a lender.

Often times, the hardest part of the process to me seems to be finding the piece of land that is just right for them and fits the needs of the buyer. Once they have done that, we will try our best to make the process of financing and closing as smooth as possible.

Charlie: Next, let’s say this gentleman calls you at Capital Farm Credit and says “Hello Clint, I have been looking for a property and Charlie has a great place listed for sale that I really like.  He told me I should call you and discuss rates and terms.  Tell me about the services you offer and explain to me the steps involved in getting this done and loan approval.”

Clint: Purchase transactions are our “bread and butter” here at Capital Farm Credit.  We will walk the customer through the different aspects of fixed and variable rates.  We can offer a menu of many different loan products to choose from that they can tailor to fit their needs.   We discuss the timing of income and make sure payments are structured to best fit their particular circumstances. Normally we set up a time to bring in information to us and sit down and complete a majority of the application paperwork, which can often be done in about 30 minutes.  We can also handle customers by phone and email, and can complete the process from start to finish with the customer never actually coming in to the office.   We will handle all aspects of the appraisal process and work directly with the title company all the way through to closing.

Charlie: That sounds fairly painless Clint, which is exactly what I would expect from you and the rest of the team at Capital Farm Credit.

This has been very interesting and I have learned a lot.  I appreciate your taking the time to visit with me about this.  I can’t wait to do another deal with you!

Clint: Your welcome Charlie, and we appreciate the opportunity to visit with you about what we do.

Vann Colorado River Ranch in Burnet County, Texas offered for sale after being under the same family ownership for over 100 years!Vann Colorado River Ranch

Offered for sale after being under the same family ownership for over 100 years!

Location: This outstanding Highland Lakes area ranch is located in a sought after area being approximately 16 miles southwest of Lampasas and 24 miles northwest of Burnet. It is less than an hour’s drive from Austin, approximately 2 hours from San Antonio and 2.5 to 3 hours to the DFW and Houston areas.

Acres: 1,231.74 +/- Acres

History: John Fletcher Vann was born in Madison County in East Texas in 1861. His parents died at a young age and he was raised by an aunt. He and his cousins migrated to the Texas Hill Country in 1877 to the area known as Buffalo Prairie in northern Burnet County. As a young man he made several trips up the famed Chisholm Trail on cattle drives and became well established in the ranching business. The Vann Ranch had its beginning in 1889 when he began establishing a large ranch holding along the east side of the Colorado River west of the community of Naruna. The location was a mile or so up river from the historic Tanyard area which was first settled in 1860. The Tanyard got its name from a tanning factory that had been there since the Civil War days.

John T. (Jigger) Vann was one of seven heirs and inherited this portion of the ranch and he purchased additional land along the river in later years. Buchanan Dam was constructed some 20 miles downstream in 1936 and backed water up along the ranch’s river frontage. Jigger enjoyed having friends around to share the magnificent beauty and serenity of boating, fishing and hunting along these headwaters of Lake Buchanan and there were many good times held at the old “Green Cabin” on its banks.

Terrain: The mountain country views are magnificent including a view of Post Oak Falls which is located directly across the river in San Saba County. Unlike many of the scenic ranches along the Colorado River in this area, this ranch allows for excellent access to the 3,600 feet of river frontage. The ranch has been managed for livestock production and for the past twenty years the whitetail deer hunting has been managed to produce trophy bucks. The ranch is loaded with wildlife that are native to the area including whitetail deer, turkey, bobcats and varmints of all kinds. Non-native species including Axis deer, Aoudad, Blackbuck antelope and feral hogs are also viewed on the ranch. Hunting income brings in approximately $27 per acre for a season only lease. Fishing along the river is excellent including year round fishing for catfish, stripers and other lake fish. The white bass fishing is fantastic when they make their spring run up the river from the deep water of Lake Buchanan.

The terrain is diverse with elevations ranging from 1,000 feet along the river to 1,450 feet on top of Buzzard and Greenwood Mountains. The eastern part of the ranch is rolling live oak savannah, the middle portion along the mountain ridges is red gravel post oak country, while the western portion approaching the river is rugged with cedar and live oak being predominant. The ranch has numerous springs that provide approximately 1.4 miles of year round flowing water including Greenwood and Simpson Creeks. The brush and tree cover is scattered to fairly dense. The ranch has a good mixture of palatable native grasses, with the predominate grasses being Texas Winter Grass, Mesquite Grass, Bermuda Grass several varieties of Gramma, Bluestem and a favorable mix of Forbes. Soils are stony clay and loamy soils underlain by limestone.

The ranch is fenced and cross fenced with barbed wire fencing into 8 pastures. There is approximately 0.6 mile of high fencing along a portion of the perimeter.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered with livestock and wildlife water provided by the creeks and river plus five earthen ponds. There is also a water well, which was drilled in 2011, on the east end of the ranch that provides water for the hunting camp area where electric hookups for eight travel trailers are available. The pump is set at 380 feet with the standing water level being 115 feet below the surface. The well yields approximately 10 GPM. An electric line runs the length of the ranch and along the river frontage allowing for easy availability to electricity throughout the ranch.

Access: The ranch is very private being located at the end of Burnet County Road 105 and is accessed by approximately 1/2 mile on a 50 ROW easement. It is joined by only four other large ranch holdings and the lake.

Improvements: Structural improvements on the ranch are modest and consist of two primitive living cabins on the river, a small one room cabin in the southwest corner and a new one room log cabin located in the approximate center of the river frontage with a view of Post Oak Falls. These cabins have electricity and a telephone land line is available but there is no running water to the cabins. They serve as great weekend retreats.

Hunting/Recreation: The Vann Colorado River Ranch has a great blend of fairly open country transitioning to areas with moderate to fairly dense cover, offering outstanding habitat for wildlife, but still maintaining good grass cover.

Whitetail deer, aoudad (barbary) sheep, axis deer, blackbuck antelope as well as other native and exotics frequent the Vann Ranch.

Remarks: Few ranches ever become available like this one, with Lake Buchanan access. This portion of the river provides for large boats to be utilized and miles of pristine and unbelievable scenery. The ranch is located on the upper end of the route up river from Lake Buchanan that the Vanishing Texas River Cruise takes and is now available for your private enjoyment.

Price: The ranch is priced to sell on today’s market at $7,500,000 or approximately $6,089 per acre. One half of the minerals currently owned will convey. It is believed that a majority of the minerals are owned by the sellers.

Kenedy County South TX Ranch For SaleTullidos Pasture Armstrong Ranch

5,500 ± Acres Kenedy County South TX Ranch For Sale

We are proud and honored to have obtained an exclusive listing on a portion of one of the state’s most legendary ranches, the Armstrong Ranch. The Tullidos Pasture of the Armstrong Ranch is located in the heart of the South Texas “Big Ranch Country”, adjoining both the remainder of the Armstrong Ranch and the Norias Division of the King Ranch.

The property is located approximately 45 minutes from Valley International Airport in Harlingen. The nearest public airport, capable of handling larger private aircraft, is Kleberg County Airport (KIKG) at Kingsville, approximately 45 miles north of the ranch. This all-weather, instrument certified, airport has a 6,001-foot x 75-foot asphalt runway capable of handling large business jets. Access to the ranch is provided by paved frontage on the west side of U.S. Highway 77.

The entire west and north boundaries of the ranch adjoin the remaining 45,000 acre Armstrong Ranch. The south boundary adjoins the Norias Division of the 825,000 acre King Ranch. Other large ranching operations in the area include the Santa Fe, Yturria, Kenedy, Jones, and Bass Ranches. Most of these large area ranches have been owned and controlled by the same families for over 100 years. Given the size of the two large adjoining ranches and the other large nearby holdings, ranches in this area very rarely become available for purchase. To give some perspective regarding the size of ranch holdings in Kenedy County, this county is the third least populous county in Texas and the fourth least populous county in the United States.

The ranch has been under the ownership of the Armstrong Family since 1852. Initially, James H. Durst purchased the property after he and friend Richard King became enamored with this region. Wild horses and even wilder cattle ran free throughout the Wild Horse Desert at that time, and the pair knew if they could find reliable water and overcome the lawlessness of the region that this would be exceptional ranchland for cattle grazing, and in the early days his focus was almost entirely on grazing red Santa Gertrudis cattle.

Durst’s life was filled with accomplishment and adventures, but unfortunately, his life was not a long one. Fast forward to approximately 1872, when Durst’s daughter married John B. Armstrong, a native of Tennessee and a member of the Travis Rifles, an elite guard and Texas Rangers. Armstrong was known as the man who arrested John Wesley Hardin, likely one of the deadliest outlaws in his day. The arrest of Hardin garnished Armstrong with $4,000 in reward money. This windfall gave he and his wife Mollie the financial capability to buy some livestock and settle in ranching on what has come to be known as the Armstrong Ranch.

The topography of the Tullidos Pasture is characterized as coastal plains country with scattered natural lake depressions. The ranch is situated approximately 25 miles west of Laguna Madre and the north end of Padre Island. Elevations are in the range of 20 to 30 feet MSL. The soils are a mixture of fine sand, loamy fine sand and fine sandy loam. The ranch has a desirable mix of open prairie and large scattered motts of mesquite, live oak and huisache. Typical grasses include bluestem, Bermuda grass, coastal sacahuista, switchgrass, Indiangrass, hooded windmill grass, bahiagrass, etc. Forbs include western indigo, dotted gayfeather, croton (desirable quail feed), lantana, camphor daisy, etc. The sacahuista has been controlled through periodic prescribed burns. The natural scattered tree canopy forms an almost perfect blend of open and wooded country, offering great protection and viewing opportunities for wildlife. The natural mix of scattered wooded motts and open prairies give the ranch a pristine sculptured appearance.

The ranch is fenced into one pasture. The fences are of typical barbed wire construction and are in good condition.

The Tullidos Pasture is considered to be well watered. Water features include a solar well located on the north-central portion of the property that supplies a water trough and feeds a waterline to another trough located near the center of the ranch. Additionally, a windmill feeds a trough near the southwest corner of the property, near where the Tullidos Pasture joins the King Ranch and the remaining portion of the Armstrong holdings.

A waterline supplies water to the lodge and another water trough that is located near the southeastern corner of the property.

Several natural depressions are scattered throughout the Tullidos Pasture.

The Tullidos Pasture is improved with a rustic lodge attractively located in a large mott of giant live oaks. The lodge includes a large bedroom and bathroom with a separated kitchen/living area. A breezeway divides the lodge, and the front of the structure has a covered porch, perfect for evening entertainment.

This outstanding ranch is a sportsman’s paradise. It is located in an area of South Texas widely regarded as the best quail country in the United States. The ranch has been well managed over the years to maximize habitat and numbers.

Other game species include trophy quality whitetail deer and nilgai, as well as an abundance of dove and turkey. The many natural lake depressions provide exceptional habitat for waterfowl.

..

Without question, the Tullidos Pasture of the Armstrong Ranch represents one of the finest recreational ranches to be offered for sale in an area where there are limited opportunities to purchase ranch properties.

This outstanding and historic property is realistically offered for sale at $3,500 per acre.

The mineral estate was reserved many years ago, however, there is very little oil and gas production on the ranch.

The ranch is located in an area with a generally desirable climate and annual precipitation is in the range of 27-28”.

Everything is in place and ready to go on this ranch. If you are in the market for a premier hunting ranch, adjoining or in close proximity to some of the largest and most famous ranches in South Texas, this offering deserves your immediate attention. Opportunities to purchase a ranch of this quality and desirable location are few and far between.

IMG_0106Reding Ranch For Sale 623.21 Acres : Denton County Land For Sale

Located in the northern outskirts of Denton approximately 50 miles north of the Dallas Central Business District

Location: The Reding Ranch is located in the northern outskirts of the City of Denton, in northern Denton County approximately 50 miles north of the Dallas Central Business District. The ranch is also centrally located to Hwy. 380 (7 miles), Dallas North Tollway (20 miles) and Interstate 35 (3.5 miles).

Acres: 623.21 Acres

Terrain: The property is gently rolling with a seasonal creek running generally north to south through the middle of the tract. The creek is lined with large Bodark trees.  The property has an open appearance, with only a sparse amount of mesquite.  Rolling hills give the property great elevation change and views for 20 plus miles in any direction.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered with 10 earthen ponds scattered through the property along with a co-op waterline (municipal quality water) running along the west side of the ranch. There are currently three taps available on this line. There are also scattered water wells in the vicinity.

Access: Access is available via a paved two lane highway, FM 2164, with considerable frontage on the west side of the ranch. The property has approximately 5,000 linear feet of frontage on FM 2164. The ranch is located four miles north of Loop 288 and two miles south of FM 455.

Improvements: The Reding Ranch is modestly improved with an older single family residence, storage sheds, barns, stock pens and pipe corrals. The house is approximately 2,500 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. The house has not been lived in for five plus years so it needs some TLC.

Hunting/Recreation: Bird hunting is good and the numerous ponds provide excellent water fowl habitat.  All ponds have been stocked for many years with the fishing reportedly being very good.

Price: $ 9,000 per acre

Remarks: This very well located property is currently zoned “RD-5”, Rural Residential District.  The property is zoned for rural residential uses but is currently operated as a cow/calf ranching operation.  This prime location offers tremendous development potential.  Pastures have been well maintained with the elimination of mesquite and protecting the native grass with a very conservative stocking rate.  Portions of the property are typically over seeded to wheat for additional seasonal grazing.  The elevation changes, views and clean pastures make this a horse lover’s dream.  The Redding Ranch is surrounded by highly improved horse properties and is only a few miles south of Lake Ray Roberts.  It is not often that a property of this size with this many options and close proximity to the Dallas-Ft. Worth growth corridor comes on the market in this desirable area.
