2018 Acre Ranch
The 96 Ranch is a must view in order to truly appreciate the natural beauty of its setting as well as the pride of ownership that is evident throughout the ranch’s 2,018.51 contiguous deeded acres. The ranch is located approximately 40 miles southwest of Torrington and a well-maintained county road travels through the property providing excellent year-round access. The ranch’s topography consists of ¾ of a mile of tree-lined creek bottom with live water from Bear Creek to rolling hills of native grasses, open meadows of sagebrush and an adequate amount of flood-irrigated fields to maximize production. There are a total of 1,898.51± acres of grazing land. The remaining 120 acres are flood-irrigated using 5,400 feet of 10-inch gated pipe with irrigation water provided by the Bear Creek Ditch Company. The irrigated ground primarily produces grass hay which yields approximately 2.5 ton of hay per acre. The 96 Ranch is very well watered with ¾ of a mile of live water from Bear Creek that flows through the northern end of the ranch along with two windmills and two wells with submersible electric pumps. These wells provide water to the improvements, the two sets of corrals as well as supplying water through 880 feet of underground pipeline that provides ample water throughout the ranch for livestock and wildlife. This ranch has an abundance of improvements including two homes and numerous outbuildings. This beautiful and scenic ranch offers natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere as well as privacy and seclusion. With the excellent development of the water system on the ranch along with the deciduous tree-covered creek bottoms and irrigated hay fields, the 96 Ranch provides an ideal habitat for several wildlife species. The 96 Ranch is a breeding ground for the thriving Miriam Turkey population while a number of elk, trophy mule deer and antelope feed daily on the fields and grasslands.
