Property Description

The San Arroyo Creek Ranch is 5259+/- total acres with 4626+/- deeded contiguous acres and a 633+/- State Lease ½ mile away. The ranch is located approximately 24 miles south of Ft. Morgan or 34 miles northeast of Byers in eastern Adams County and less than an hour from Denver.

The San Arroyo Creek Ranch is a true working cattle ranch with a good mix of warm and cool season grasses, providing excellent grazing and gains. The ranch has good fencing throughout and is cross fenced with either barbed wire or high tensile electric fence creating 17 separate pastures. The ranch is also very well watered, 8 wells utilizing electric submersible pumps, solar pumps and a windmill provide water to a 27,000 gallon on demand cistern and an extensive pipeline system for 10 stock tanks strategically positioned around the ranch. There are also automatic waterers located in the feed pens and at the calving barn and corrals.

Improvements on the San Arroyo Creek Ranch include: a nicely remodeled 1672 square foot 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, partially finished basement with forced air heating and cooling, 2640 square foot calving barn, 2840 square foot main shop, 2100 square foot shop, 240 square foot storage shed and a 750 square foot garage. In addition to the home and outbuildings there is a very good set of corrals, a working facility and load out chutes located at the headquarters and an additional feeding/backgrounding yard a short distance west of the headquarters.

The owner rates the carrying capacity of the ranch at either 22-25 acres per cow/calf pair on a year around basis with some supplemental feed or at 12-14 acres per cow/calf pair for the growing season. Depending on how you want to operate the ranch, it should carry 300 +/-  pairs plus bulls and some horses.

Hunting on the San Arroyo Creek Ranch can be very rewarding as well. You will likely get the opportunity to hunt the occasional Monster Muley or Pronghorn, varmints, small game and pheasants. You will definitely be able to experience some great Plains hunting!

The Seller intends to participate in an IRS 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange, so the sale of the San Arroyo Creek Ranch is contingent upon the Seller being able to locate and place under contract  a satisfactory exchange property prior to Closing. The Seller also intends to help facilitate the transfer of the “State Lease” to the Buyer pending approval of said transfer by the State Land Board.

Qualified Buyers, please contact Rick Kusel to schedule a personal showing of the Sand Arroyo Creek Ranch
