"In no way can I convey entirely the excitement and enthusiasm of the original idea and purchase of land and also the extreme poverty and stressful times of the early years. At one point the mortgage was due and there was no money to pay Memorus Bruffey. The 63 Ranch exists today because he did not foreclose." SANDRA CHRISTENSEN
In 1929, Elmer and Paul Christensen, and their sister, Jo Francis, bought 420 acres from Memorus Bruffey, whose family homesteaded Montana land in 1890.
Overlooking rolling fields and pastures and punctuated with stunning vistas of the Judith Mountain Range, Blood Coulee Farm represents a prime opportunity to own productive farm ground in the heart of Central Montana. This 1,727± deeded-acre farm is conveniently located 10 miles northeast of Denton, Montana and within a comfortable 40-minute drive of Lewistown.
This low-overhead livestock and dryland-farm operation encompasses 2,104± deeded acres that are a mix of native pasture, productive dryland crop and mixed upland timber acres rimmed by a stunning and very private network of canyons, rims and dramatic bluffs.
This low-overhead livestock and dryland-farm operation located 25 miles north of Columbus has had numerous capital-improvement projects including fencing, stock-water system, new shop and a new ranch-manager home. The 16,829± total-acre Ranch encompasses 16,189± deeded acres that are a mix of native pasture, sub-irrigated pasture, mixed upland acres and tilled cropland. The grass is in exceptional condition and ready for livestock. The diligent efforts of ownership and management have created an efficient and well-run livestock operation that currently runs 1,250± bison and is estimated to run approximately 800 cows year round with several thousand acres of dryland crop and likely closer to 1,000 cows should all of the cropland be seeded back into pasture.
Congratulations to the buyers of the 63 Ranch.
Encompassing Mission Creek Canyon with the backdrop of the Absaroka Mountain Range, 63 Ranch, located minutes from Livingston, is in one of the most stunning settings in Montana. The 2,014± deeded acres cover timbered hillsides, lush riparian bottoms along Mission Creek, and rolling meadows of native grasses. Bordering the Gallatin National Forest and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area to the south, the Ranch controls the mouth of the Mission Creek Canyon in what may very well be one of the most dramatic backdrops in the lower 48 states. Traditionally operated as a historic guest ranch, the 63 Ranch would also be ideal as a recreational gentleman’s ranch for the outdoor enthusiast and allow one to run livestock.
Congratulations to the Seller and Buyer on this singular opportunity!
