A contiguous block of 18,038± nearly all deeded acres that stretches over 15 miles end-to-end, that looks and operates much the same as it did a century ago. The ranch was originally part of the historic Philbrick Ranch, which was founded by brothers Newell and Freeman Philbrick in 1891. Rosebud Creek meanders through the ranch hay meadows for over three miles supporting significant bird and wildlife habitat, as well as a licensed shooting preserve. The ranch is almost exclusively native range with some intermixed pines and 230± acres of hay meadows. Complementing the live water, numerous developed springs, reservoirs, and wells have been developed and are well-scattered throughout the ranch to support livestock as well as mule deer, whitetail deer, pronghorn antelope, upland birds, and seasonal elk. The ranch improvements are functional and well located in the middle of the ranch along Rosebud Creek, eighteen miles south of I-94 on State Highway 447.
