DESCRIPTION: Incredible opportunity in Lamb County, Texas in the heart of dairy production area.  This facility boasts just about everything a producer needs for a full-scale dairy operation.  With 1436+/- acres of land this one owner facility is extremely accessible and located on US-Hwy 84 with great pavement access from FM 37 just south of Amherst, Texas. This dairy is located only 10 Miles from Continental Dairy Processing Facility Southwest in Littlefield, Texas; 51 miles from Laprino Foods Cheese Processing Facility in Lubbock, Texas and 65 miles from Southwest Cheese Facility in Portales, NM. In addition to an outstanding location in regards dairy processing facilities this property is only located 45 minutes from Lubbock, Texas.  Known as “Hub City”, Lubbock is a thriving Regional City with large network of hospitals, wonderful shopping, superb dining and cultural center for entertainment with venues like the recently constructed Buddy Holly Hall, Lubbock International Airport, and home of Texas Tech University, a tier1, D1 University which is part of the elite Big 12 Conference.  Finally, just an hour and 45 minutes away is Lake Alan Henry, a great place to relax and also a world class reservoir for black bass fishing.

 

TJ’s Dairy has centrally located main Dairy Barn along with great Dry Cow/Springer facility, along with calf ranch.  The overall layout and design of this operation has great infrastructure with the capability to run each unit with dedicated water wells and storage tanks or in certain situations move water from one facility to the other.   The current setup allows for redundant water and power, along with water storage and onsite electrical generating capacity.  With years of thought and planning this operation has built in efficiencies due to the layout.

 

Owners have established relationships with several large local agricultural producers that currently grow large portion of feed for dairy.  Owners also have large contiguous farm area not included with this facility that has supplied a substantial portion of feed as well.  With the area not only being a dairy production area, but also a beef cattle production area, there is a lot of ancillary businesses and farm operations that create a fairly robust economic ecosystem.

 

There are 4 housing units located in the footprint along with additional stand-alone office and the neighboring community of Amherst, Texas which is approximately a mile north of the facility.  This provides a close and affordable source for housing for employees of the operation.
