RANCH OPERATION Click To View
The ranch consists primarily of strong grass land; however, approximately 211 acres of dryland/sub-irrigated farm land lies along the Cabin Creek drainage and the present owners have always been able to harvest hay from these meadows.
The ranch is cross-fenced into ten pastures and has an abundance of livestock water from reservoirs, wells, one windmill and Cabin Creek, which flows through the northern part of the ranch for about two miles.
The present owners of the ranch do not own any livestock. For the past few years, they have been taking in cattle during the summer months on an extremely limited basis. Consequently, because of sufficient moisture and reduced cattle numbers, the available feed/vegetation is plentiful. Historically, the ranch was utilized as a year-around cow/calf operation with supplemental feeding in the winter. However, an alternative use would be for a seasonal yearling cattle operation (about five months).
Note: Carrying capacity may vary due to weather conditions and management practices. Interested parties should conduct their own analysis prior to purchasing.
The topography of the ranch consists of timbered ridges sloping down to open meadows and open range land. The elevation ranges from 4106′ to 4405′ above sea level. According to the NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service), the average annual precipitation in this area is 11 inches.
