Farms, Ranches, Recreational
This is one of the most dramatic, amazing ranches ever listed by Lashley Land. It is in the heart of the Wildcat Hills, filled with dramatic vistas worthy of a movie set. In fact, RFDTV has filmed TWO episodes of ‘Riding America” on this ranch for its tremendous beauty and wildlife. Beyond its breathtaking landscape, this is a fantastic cattle ranch, with perhaps the finest cattle improvements we have ever seen in any operation we have listed. The ranch has 2 springs which have underground piping to 4 watering sites. There is a total of 11 tanks that are run by the springs, solar panel pumps, windmills and submersible wells with underground piping. There are a total of 7 cross-fenced pastures that are outside of the improvement sites. While there are many scenic buttes, the cattle are adept at reaching every mouthful of grass growing at all elevations. In addition there is a center pivot irrigation that currently has irrigated grass under it.
There are all steel corrals, an indoor working cattle facility with crowding chutes and hospital pens. There is an elaborate winter watering system in place to provide more than enough water for cattle during the winter months. All that is needed to make this into a year round operation would be to bring in additional feed for the winter time. The owner currently rents a pivot of alfalfa nearby and uses that resource for winter feed. There are a lot of cornstalks in the area as well, so winter feed options are plentiful.
If you are a hunter or wish to operate an outfitting business, this ranch is the place! Large herds of Big Horn sheep roam the property, as do Elk, Antelope and enormous Mule Deer. The Owners have maintained excellent conservation efforts in regards to the large game, and as a result, it is plentiful!
In addition to several useful outbuildings there is a lovely family home featuring three bedrooms, an office, and a fully finished walk out basement. The home has a tremendous view of the dramatic buttes of the Wildcat Hills. There is also an older, smaller home that can be leased to an outfitter or to hired hands, and a cabin outpost with horse pens for extended overnight rides on this picturesque ranch.
