Mark your calendars now to participate in this unprecedented Central Iowa Real Estate Auction. Due to the untimely passing of Mr. Shawn Cogley, the Cogley family has decided to sell the Colfax Livestock facility.

This facility offers several modern features including a livestock ring scale, large sales arena, office area and full service dining area. 

The livestock holding area has ample space to control 2,500-3,000 head of cattle or other livestock and the business sold nearly 30,000 head of livestock in 2022. 

The facility also has an additional income stream for housing rest cattle traveling from all areas of the United States due to its ideal location on heavily traveled Interstate 80. 

The property encompasses approximately 12 acres with a large graveled parking area and a potential of a small pasture area in the western portion.

This property will be offered as a turn key business with all components in place including fully furnished kitchen and office area.

If you have ever had the desire to own an ongoing profitable livestock auction that is conveniently located in a progressive rural community, we urge you to take a look at this unprecedented business opportunity!

Please Note: Colfax Livestock has several auctions scheduled including a horse sale for Sunday, April 30th and there are regular sales scheduled every Saturday through May 20, 2023. Please feel free to attend any of these events or call the auction company with any questions you may have.
