The Broken O Ranch is one of the Rocky Mountain West’s most grand and significant ranches. Encompassing almost 124,000 acres of deeded and leased land, the Broken O Ranch is located 45 miles west of Great Falls, Montana and east of the stunning Rocky Mountain Front. Over 20 miles of the beautiful Sun River flow through the heart of the Ranch, offering prime irrigation benefits as well as amazing hunting and fishing assets.
Under the vision of William E. and Desiree B. Moore, founders of the Kelly-Moore Paint Company, twenty years were spent assembling this massive land holding. Spread across Lewis & Clark, Cascade and Teton Counties, the Ranch was carefully shaped and improved by the Moores to create this productive enterprise.
This expansive and versatile Montana cattle ranch for sale is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing global demand for beef and grains. The Broken O Ranch currently carries 3,500 mother cows plus 800 replacement heifers and 175 range bulls. This Montana ranch for sale includes the state’s largest block of irrigated land – 13,000 acres – historically produces about 25,000 tons of alfalfa hay and 700,000 bushels of small grain crops annually.
The Cattle Division and Headquarters of the Broken O Ranch are located 10 miles east of Augusta and about 11 miles west of Simms on State Highway 21. The Farming Division is located approximately two miles west of the Cattle Division via State Highway 21. Great Falls, the third largest city in Montana, is a comfortable 45-minute drive from the Ranch.
Besides the Broken O’s tremendous agricultural production, it offers outstanding recreational amenities. The Sun River corridor provides exceptional brown and rainbow trout fishing, antelope, whitetail and mule deer hunting, as well as extensive upland game bird and waterfowl populations.
“The Broken O Ranch is one of the Rocky Mountain West’s most significant holdings to come on the Western real estate market in decades. The scale, commodity production, recreational amenities and overall diversity make it one of the most unique offerings we have ever represented,” according to Managing Broker Mike Swan of Bates Sanders Swan Land Company in Bozeman, Montana.
With its unique combination of productivity, scale and grandeur, Montana ranches for sale such as the Broken O Ranch present a rare opportunity for land stewards and investors. According to the Fall 2011 issue of The Land Report, the next owner of the Broken O Ranch would take an immediate position as the 89th largest land owner in the United States – an iconic designation within the Nation’s esteemed fraternity of landowners.
The Broken O Ranch is being offered turn-key including all livestock, hay and grain inventories at the time of sale, plus machinery and equipment.
