In a valley of long-standing family ranches, the R Bar N Ranch – Racetrack Unit provides an opportunity to run a quality commercial or purebred cattle operation in historic cattle country.  This is a producing ranch with all the components for maximum forage production.  The current owners have implemented practical improvements and upgrades that have resulted in an overall increase in the Ranch’s productivity. 

The Seller estimates that the Racetrack Unit could comfortably run about 300 pairs on a year-round basis.  Dependent on management, the Ranch could also yield significant hay yields providing ample hay tonnage to carry the cattle through the winter months and allow for a solid revenue stream with surplus hay sales.

The R Bar N Ranch - Racetrack Unit contains 1,108± deeded acres of which about 823± acres are irrigated with solid senior water rights.

The productive irrigated fields combined with solid spring and summer grass provides flexibility to grow small grains, potatoes or hay on a portion of the irrigated-base property while still generating ample hay for the cattle operation.  The working corrals are steel-pipe construction and work cattle easily.  The Sellers recently added an additional working alley, loading chute and portable scale system to the working corral system – all constructed in continuous pipe. The heated indoor facility housing the Silencer chute was constructed for embryo transfer work and is immaculately kept – a truly impressive set of working improvements!  Pride of ownership shows throughout the Ranch – the new owner will not be burdened with repairs or clean up.

This is a must see for an operator looking to relocate to a proven area with consistent moisture and good soils in a solid agricultural community.  Western Montana ranch operations such as this are becoming difficult to find in today’s market.  This is a turn-key operation that is ready to operate immediately upon possession by the new owner.
