A perfectly balanced ranch with 770± acres under irrigation and 5,750± acres of excellent rangeland fenced into seven pastures. The ranch currently runs 1,400 yearlings from November to April while putting up 2,500 tons of quality hay. As a year-round operation, the ranch has comfortably supported 400 pairs. There are four sets of quality improvements that are modest, very comfortable, and well-maintained, including four homes and a complete set of ranch buildings and corrals. The topography of the ranch has a natural transition from the lower 5,000 feet irrigated bottoms that ease up into the hills and break at the south end topping out at 5,800 feet in the mahogany ridges. Loaded with wildlife, including mule deer, antelope, some upland birds, and elk. In summary, this is a very productive, private, and balanced ranch operation that is easy to get to and in excellent condition.
