R BAR N RANCH | HEADQUARTERS UNIT - NEW LISTING
Deer Lodge, Montana | Powell County
- Approximately 750 Deeded Acres
- Senior Water Rights
R Bar N Ranch – Headquarters Unit contains approximately 750 deeded acres and represents an opportunity to own solid irrigated farm land with consistent crop yields in conjunction with a productive cattle operation. With about 605 acres irrigated from the West Side Ditch, the Headquarters Unit represents a compact highly-productive irrigated ranching operation. The crop acres are farmed by a nearby farmer who rotates in wheat and potatoes – a testimony to the quality of both the water and the soil profile.
What the Headquarters Unit provides to a prospective buyer is flexibility, providing the option of either running a high-yield hay and grain operation or a productive intensive grazing scenario that will put pounds of beef on cattle. Yields and carrying capacities are solely dependent on the management style of a new owner.
The cattle-handling facilities are very well maintained and functional. Large backgrounding yards provide flexibility to either ship calves after fall weaning or hold over to feed during the winter months and market in the spring. With an indoor heated facility housing the hydraulic Silencer chute, working either yearling calves or large herd bulls is made easy and efficient – even in the worst of winter conditions. Originally designed as an embryo-transfer facility – the scale and chute house is state of the art and is one of the highlights of the Ranch.
The Headquarters Unit is ready to operate on day one of ownership. Pride of ownership is evident immediately upon turning off Greenhouse Road. Fences, buildings, cattle handling facilities, pivots and fields are all well maintained and appear to be in very good condition. This is a must see for the Buyer looking for a compact-productive agricultural unit at a good price point.
