3596 Deeded Acres, 1486 BLM acres, 5082 Total Acres
The terrain is rolling hills with drainage to the large arroyos that bisect the ranch. The soil ranges from deep sandy soils to a rockier and more shallow soil that is consistent to this area of New Mexico. The vegetation on the ranch consists of a variety of grasses: gramma, tobosa, giant saccatone, and salt grass, just to name a few.
The ranch is watered by two main wells; one at the headquarters and a shared BLM well with a long history of shared use by several ranches. The well is located on an adjoining ranch and piped onto this ranch.
The ranch has a 100 cow year-round allotment from BLM.
Located at the headquarters is a three-bedroom two bath Rock home. The home has a large family room with a fireplace. There is also a basement consisting of a large room and a bathroom.
The draws and arroyos on the ranch attract many varieties of wildlife. There is a resident herd of Mule Deer, coyotes, bobcats, quail, dove, and other migratory species.
If you are looking for a ranch you can own and enjoy the quietness of the country, this is your place. The ranch is very secluded but has easy access via a State Highway.
