Acquired in the early 1970s, the property has always served as a working cattle ranch, and supports upwards of 200 AUMs (160 mother cows and 40 replacement heifers) year-round. There are five main paddocks, two meadow pastures, and a bull catch for a total of eight pastures for rotational grazing. In addition to the residences described above, the main ranch headquarters include a garage, shop, and tool shed, six-bay calving barn, insulated club-calf cooling shed, feed bunks, and a full set of working pens. The ranch is perimeter and interior fenced with five-wire barbed wire and is serviced by typical two-track ranch roads.
In addition to decreed rights to 2.5 cfs in the Harney Ditch, the ~ 115 acres of irrigated hay ground on WindowSash Ranch is served by a 4,000 ga/min deep aquifer well and more than a dozen decreed livestock wells and springs.
The ranch has ~115 acres of flood irrigated hay ground which on average produces between 230 and 285 tons on a normal year (single cutting). Irrigation water primarily comes from the WSSR Well No.1 well, @ 4,000 ga/min, serviced by a 75 hp electric pump.
An important working lands, open space, and wildlife legacy property, WindowSash Ranch lies just south of an existing Ducks Unlimited Conservation Easement and is an attractive conservation opportunity for a motivated investor.
