Farm Description

A contiguous low overhead and low entry cost per animal unit grass ranch on the Montana-Wyoming State Line covering 17,500+/- Acres.

Buy 4,658+- deeded with 1,880+- BLM and 1,380+- State acres and get a 10 year private lease on an additional 4,961+/- deeded and 4,796+/- BLM acres. Total carrying capacity is estimated to be 350-400 AU. The blended rate for all of the private, Blm, and state grazing leases calculate to approximately $17.50 per Animal Unit Month.

The well managed block of prime livestock grazing has extensive stock water pipeline serving multiple stock tanks and holds numerous stock water reservoirs. Positioned on the divide (3,800 to 4,200 feet) between the Tongue and Powder Rivers, the area is known to average 14-18 inches of precipitation per year which produces strong sod and excellent forage. Located in Powder River County, Montana along the Wyoming state line, it is halfway between Broadus, Montana and Sheridan, Wyoming. Solid grass management has resulted in feed that can only be seen to believe.

The escarpment of the Powder River Breaks provides ideal habitat for elk, mule deer, and pronghorn and the diverse topography and remote nature of the Otter Creek makes it an ideal recreation property. Thick pockets of Ponderosa Pine along the ridges and sage covered hills provide excellent cover. Gentle valleys and deep canyons also provide protection and iconic hunting terrain. The rolling grass meadows provides excellent food plots. Large elk in the 375" and 384" class were taken by bow and rifle in 2017 and another 385 inch bull was taken in 2018. Mule deer in excess of 180", pronghorn, turkey, and black bear add to the incredible value of the property.

There are no buildings on the ranch but the original homestead does have power, well water, driveway access, and telephone for the next owner to build to suite. This area is known for quality year around cow calf operations and helpful neighbors for branding and shipping seasons. If you want some cattle that know the country, some or all the pairs can be purchased on a separate bill of sale.
