Agricultural Production

The current owner has operated the ranch under a crop rotation planting corn, beans, sorghum and follow-up crops like milo. A productive dryland farm, a conservative yield is between 110-120 bushel corn, 40-45 bushel beans and 75-90 bushel sorghum. The owner states that they easily meet these goals every year when they have good moisture. With average rainfall above 25”, this is premier dryland farm country!

Investment Value

Red Sky Ranch is truly a rare and unique ranch and farm. The property is aesthetically appealing, with many recreational opportunities, complete with great production and cash flow, all in one large, contiguous package.

Cattle Operation

Traditionally the ranch has carried 120 pair year-round with full crop production. The owner has been transitioning this program to a more intensive grazing model with 185 cow/calf pairs, 270 bred heifers and 18 bulls. The ranch is well watered and includes a good set of working facilities, as well as pasture allies to make rotational grazing efficient.
