The 85,700± acre historic Stone Ranch lies south of the Ferris Mountains in central Wyoming about 15 miles north of Rawlins and runs south and east towards Bradley Peak. Owned by the Moore family since 1947, the ranch consists of 16,990± deeded acres, 63,195± acres of BLM lease and 5,518± acres of State of Wyoming. The ranch is made up of several large deeded blocks, surrounded by the BLM and State grazing leases. It measures roughly 12 miles from north to south and 18 miles east to west and is functionally cross fenced into 11 pastures which are positioned to allow easy livestock rotation. The ranch has a good distribution of water sources, with wells, reservoirs, springs, and several small creeks scattered throughout. The improvements are modest and practical, providing all the needed ingredients to operate a cattle ranch. They include a comfortable home, shops, barn, multiple corral setups, and a large livestock building, complete with working facilities for processing cattle. The ranch is rated by the owner at 800 pairs year-round with the ability to run considerably more during the summer grazing season. The Stone Ranch is a working cattle ranch that has all the necessary ingredients to operate as a stand-alone cow/calf operation or as a seasonal grazing for pairs or yearling stocker cattle. The Stone Ranch offers excellent big game hunting for mule deer, elk, upland birds, and antelope. In summary, this is a low-overhead large grazing ranch with excellent hunting amenities.
