Investment Value

VB Canyon Ranch is an excellent value as a cattle ranch.  With a carrying capacity of 250 mother cows year-round, this is one of the few cattle ranches on the market that offers a compelling return in relation to price.  Simply, the property will “pencil,” or make economic sense, based on cattle grazing alone.  Factoring in the hunting/wildlife value, Gutierrez offers a genuinely sound investment opportunity.

Ranch Operations

VB Canyon Ranch is a solid cattle ranch with adequate fencing and stock water. The ranch is rated for 250 mother cows. Dominant grasses are Blue Grama and Buffalo Grass. The treed canyon country provides protective cover during rare winter storms.
