The 4,805 acre White Ranch boasts pivot irrigated farm ground, high-quality grazing, and terrific hunting along 3.5 miles of the Cimarron River in southeast Colorado. The 320 acres of irrigated corn lie next to the heavy cottonwood/tamarisk cover of the river bottom, providing ideal habitat for good numbers of elk, whitetail deer, and mule deer. Bobwhite quail are abundant in normal moisture years. There are 15 water wells on the property, with capacity and permits for irrigation of 740 acres, presenting an incredible opportunity for further wildlife habitat enhancement and production capacity.
White Ranch is approximately 12 miles northwest of Elkhart, Kansas and 52 miles southeast of Springfield, Colorado in Baca County, Colorado. The property is composed of 320 acres of center pivot irrigated farm ground (traditionally corn), approximately 1,700 acres of wooded river bottomland, and approximately 2,365 acres of pasture. The ranch is rated for 300 cow/calf pairs or 600 yearlings year-round, and includes a 300 head capacity feed lot.
Wildlife is abundant at White Ranch. This property benefits from the ideal (and unusual for this area) combination of irrigated corn circles lying directly adjacent to the wooded Cimarron River bottomland, creating ideal bedding and feeding habitat for trophy whitetail deer, mule deer, and elk. During normal moisture years, bobwhite quail densities along and adjacent to the river are as high as anywhere in North America.
