Spanning over 18 miles of the White River between Meeker and Rangely, this large established working ranch supports an extensive year-round cow/calf operation on approximately 137,200± total acres including 11,870± deeded acres and over 125,000± acres of BLM and national forest grazing permits. Excellent water rights out of the river totaling 70± cfs are used to irrigate 800± acres of productive hay meadows, typically yielding 1,200± tons. At 5,400 feet in elevation, the river bottoms experience a relatively mild climate and provide protected calving areas. The expansive mountain pastures range up to 8,000 feet on the deeded lands and over 10,000 feet in the forest allotment, resulting in higher precipitation and ample feed. Livestock carrying capacity has historically run 800 to 1,000 cow/calf pairs plus bulls and replacement heifers. A manager’s home and facilities at the main headquarters are complimented by several separate sets of support residences and buildings. Ranch cattle and equipment are negotiable. The ranch is easily accessible year-round from the paved highway within 30 minutes of either Meeker or Rangely. This is a solid investment-quality asset offering a competitive return on investment.
