Ranch Operations

The current ranch operations include livestock (cattle) grazing and hay production, both of which are leased to local neighbors. There may be an opportunity to increase irrigated hay ground and production through the securing of additional stored reservoir water rights, in addition to the adjudicated State of Wyoming water rights that currently exist.

Conservation Value

The Mydland Ranch has significant conservation values and ecological features of great importance, enough to protect in perpetuity. With the ranch’s close proximity to the City of Sheridan, the potential for sub-division and development was real. The current owners were able to secure the property and protect it through a conservation easement, which fully enables the continuation of agricultural and recreational activities, along with a building envelope for the future owners.
