Ranch Operations

The current ranch operation includes a combination of limited livestock grazing and hay production. The current owners have implemented a conservative seasonal grazing program of approximately 60-90 pairs from May 15- Oct 15th. There are ten developed springs and another seven auto-waters, providing livestock water throughout the ranch, with ample opportunity to develop many more. There is a modest livestock handling facility (with electricity and water), including a small corral, small calving barn, and loading chute. There are good water rights for approximately 64 acres of irrigated land, producing an average of 25-30 tons of grass hay annually. Hay production could be greatly enhanced with updated field management.

Conservation Value

The T Bar T Ranch is a rare gem, a place that not many will ever have a chance to own and enjoy as it originated. The current owners have had the foresight and initiative to protect and preserve the worth and Wyoming heritage of this wonderful place, for generations to come. The ranch is currently under a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy. The purpose of the easement is not to restrict, but to rather preserve, perpetuate, and protect the intrinsic value of the Wyomingnatural ecosystems of the property, all the while continuing inherent ranch operations. It is our opinion that the value and demand of this conservation property will unquestionably appreciate, in a world of diminishing open spaces and wild places.
