Careless Creek Ranch

$6,400,000 Ryegate, MT 7,205± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Located minutes from Ryegate and an easy hour north of Billings, this 7,205± deeded acre ranch also includes 1,760± acres of state lease. It lies along Careless Creek, which offers approximately three miles of productive creek bottom and five ponds. With approximately 150 acres of flood irrigation and around 2,600 acres of dryland farming, this ranch offers a fair bit of diversification. A 4,000 square foot farmhouse with detached three-car garage is the primary improvement. Thousands of acres of well-watered rangeland allow one to run an estimated 300 animal units depending upon the use of the farm ground. The bird hunting is outstanding as the ranch has a 320± acre state-approved game preserve, which allows the release of pheasants, huns, and chukars. Antelope and mule deer hunting is also excellent. This is a well-balanced stand-alone ranch, even though it is currently the north unit of the larger Musselshell River Breaks Ranch.
