30,000-acre property marks one of the state’s priciest sales ever. Steve Rooney is living out his cowboy dreams.

“I’ve always been intrigued by the Western lifestyle. I like to ride my horse and work the cattle. I like to help with the hay. I’m working on some irrigation ditches right now. I’m a hands-on kind of guy,” he told the Wall Street Journal, which reported his more than $50 million purchase of an almost 37,000-acre cattle ranch near White Sulphur Springs, Montana.


Rooney founded Precision Pipeline, an oil and gas pipeline company based in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He sold it to the Coral Gables, Florida-based infrastructure firm MasTec in 2009, according to the outlet.

He bought the Montana cattle ranch, known as Camas Creek Cattle & Sheep Company, from Jock and Jamie Doggett. The Doggett family has owned the property for more than a century, and have worked the ranch for five generations. The property has three homes, the 2,400-square-foot Yellow House, the 2,300-square-foot White House, and 2,700-square-foot Mom’s House. They listed it for $58.8 million earlier this year.
