Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
Higgenbotham Auctioneers announced today that they will be offering at auction Ben Hill Griffin Inc’s., (BHG) 2,560 acre Texas cattle ranch. The auction is scheduled for 1pm, Thursday, November 30th.
Owned by BHG since 1997, the property has served as their sole Texas ranching operation and is located in the Texas panhandle just west of Mobeetie, which is about 75 miles north and east of Amarillo.
Concerning the Mobeetie property, Ben Hill Griffin, III, the Company’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, stated “the Texas ranch has been a highly productive asset of Ben Hill Griffin, Inc.’s Ranch Division and has provided not only excellent grazing but farming and hunting as well. However, due to a strategic decision requiring more focus on the Florida operations, a decision was made to sell the Texas holdings”.
The property will be offered in 11 parcels ranging from 160 to 320 acres and will be sold at absolute auction, meaning that it will sell to the last and highest bidder, regardless of price.
