In recent years, some big tracts of land have changed hands in Texas.
The transactions include the 65,000-acre Mesa Vista Ranch in North Texas, which belonged to the late T. Boone Pickens, the 6666 Ranch, purchased by ‘Yellowstone’ creator and Texas, Taylor Sheridan. And the Waggoner Ranch near Vernon – billed as the largest ranch under one fence.
