Tall native grasses line the bottom of timbered coulees and rim-rocked canyons on this operating cattle range in the heart of Rosebud County, Montana. The Rosebud Red Angus Ranch operates on approximately 11,455± total acres of rolling rangeland, timbered breaks, and improved and native pasture along and north of Rosebud Creek. Hunting for mule deer and antelope is outstanding and contains some of the most coveted range for these species, with increasing numbers of elk arriving each year from the nearby Wolf Mountains. With 7,212± deeded acres, of which around 555± acres are spring flood-irrigated hay meadows and 520± acres are upland hay, the ranch produces up to around 1,500 tons of hay annually, depending on moisture conditions, and reliably produces in excess of 1,000 tons. There are approximately 1,133± acres that will be added to the property through a Right of Repurchase, while the balance of the fenced range consists primarily of private leases on a mix of native range and reclaimed coal mine land. Three homes chart the ranches history through multiple generations, while a variety of additional structures provide all the necessary infrastructure for a productive cattle operation. This property has been in the same family for over 100 years and is offered for the first time.
