In Combination, These Two Ranches Have Historically Carried About 500 Head Of Commercial Cattle Year ’Round Plus 500 Yearling Steers From May 15 To October.
THE SNAKE RIVER RANCH IS LOCATED FOUR MILES NORTH OF BLACKFOOT. It contains 1,170 acres of productive hay and pasture land – 698 acres are irrigated with 31 CFS of water. Solid improvements and cattle-handling facilities compliment this attractive ranch.
Because of strong irrigation rights from one of the West’s most reliable river drainages, there is virtually no chance of being “choked out” during pro-longed dry spells. 2.50 miles of the Snake River form the western boundary – nice stands of cottonwood trees and river-bottom habitat harbor white-tail deer and some elk.
The nearby cities of Blackfoot and Idaho Falls offer a full range of amenities so isolation is not an issue – it is rare to find an operating ranch graced by fine trout water on one of the West’s great rivers.
The Ranch was home to AB What A Runner, the winner of the 2002 All American Futurity Quarter Horse Race. This beautiful little two-year old filly set a new Ruidoso Downs Track record for 440 yards closing at 20.993 seconds.
If operated separately, the Snake River Ranch will carry about 250 brood cows + 50 replacement heifers + 20 bulls on a year ’round basis. It represents a unique opportunity to own a good-sized cattle ranch close to a nice town and fronting on attractive fly-fishing water. It could be transformed to carry a purebred herd or developed into a station for prize stallions and mares.
The Snake River Ranch Can Be Purchased Separately For $6,850,000 Cash.
THE HENRYS FORK RANCH IS LOCATED EIGHT MILES NORTH OF ISLAND PARK. It is one of the most attractive, productive, and easy-to-operate summer operations to surface in many years.
The Ranch owns 161 acres of deeded land straddling the fabled Henrys Fork for half-mile and has irrigation rights for about 130 acres. A private-use Forest Service summer grazing allotment provides enviable grass for 375 cow-calf pairs from July 11 to September 1 is located two miles west.
Additionally, a private-use Idaho State grazing lease containing about 668 acres rounds out this enjoyable holding. Most of this lease adjoins the deeded land and contains another half-mile of quiet, productive fly-fishing on the Henrys Fork – all adjoined by The Nature Conservency’s Flat Ranch Preserve which contains another two miles on this productive stream.
The Ranch’s deeded land plus the USFS Allotment and State Lease can comfortably graze about 425 pairs from mid-June through October.
The Henrys Fork Ranch will position it’s next owner in the heart of one of the Rocky Mountain West’s finest outdoor recreational cornucopias. No buildings on the place so it’s a blank canvas.
The Henrys Fork Ranch Can Be Purchased Separately For $2,500,000 Cash.
