Thunder Ranch, located along the Utah and Colorado border adjoining Dinosaur National Monument and 5 miles of the Green River, is seeing some strong interest this summer because of its valuable water rights and the income it can produce from its extraordinarily high-quality hay. This Utah investment property produces 8,000 tons of alfalfa hay annually that averages 22% protein and a Relative Feed Value (RFV) in excess of 190 or higher. It is sold primarily to dairy and thoroughbred horse operations.
According to listing broker, Ken Mirr, “This is one of the finest agricultural investment properties available in the Rocky Mountain region. High protein/high RFV alfalfa hay, excellent growing conditions, historical water rights, adjacency to a National Park, and sporting attributes, make this a winning combination. This ranch is known to have some of the finest alfalfa hay and is currently exporting to other countries throughout the world. With favorable market conditions in excess of $200/ton and extraordinary water rights pumped out of the Green River of approximately 40 cfs or 9,390 acre feet, this is an excellent investment opportunity.”
