Cattle or horses, or both it’s your call. When the current owners acquired the ranch, it was set up for cutting horses with a newer 60’ x 180’ riding arena. The first-class arena with natural light offers unlimited options to either a cattle or equestrian buyer. The owners have recently added power and held their annual bull sale in the facility. The homestead will work for you 24/7 with numerous functional outbuildings, including a 16’ x 24’ insulated shed, 24’ x 60’ pole shed, along with an older barn totally redone with concrete floor and metal cladding on walls and roof. There is also a 40’ x 60’ processing area with S-tub and squeeze sitting on a concrete pad waiting for the coverall package that comes with the ranch.
The design-built cattle handling facilities are a must-see for any cattleman. One only has to imagine the hours and cost that has gone into site work and construction of this fantastic facility. In total, 9 pens with concrete and metal bunks and 5 new water bowls on concrete pads serviced by 1.5” water lines below the frost line. The hydraulic squeeze comes with the ranch. The farmstead is currently supplied by dugout water, which has been ample for both domestic and livestock use.
When the time comes to retire after a long day on the ranch, just head north through the trees to the 5-bedroom ranch home secluded from the main work area. This is not your average ranch house, as it has an above average number of closets and storage areas. In total 1,392 square feet with 2 ½ baths built in 1979. The home comes with a 24’ x 26’ detached garage. The roof on both the garage and house were replaced in 2015, along with the installation of new windows. There is also plenty of area for vegetable and flower gardens. The yard is set up with underground sprinklers to make watering the lawn and gardens a breeze!
It is not a ranch, however, without ample pasture and water. When it comes to these 2 categories, Family Ranch Unlimited offers unlimited depth to ensure a daily pasture rate of gain equivalent to that of any in Western Canada. In total, 6 quarters of land, 5 of which are fully fenced and contiguous. No need to drive 30 miles to check cattle in the summer as the pasture is only 5 minutes from the main ranch yard. There is never a water shortage at the pasture with 7 dugouts backed up with a well. The pasture usually supports 120 pairs each summer. The 5 contiguous quarters of pasture are subject to a Conservation caveat ensuring its longevity as pasture land.
With one spouse working out of province, the owners have made a family decision to be together with their 3 young children and are moving off the ranch. With an aggregate Starting Bid at under one million for 8 quarters of land, large home, riding arena and state of the art cattle handling system, this may well be the best rural buy in Southern Saskatchewan in 2019. Family Ranch Unlimited is being offered for sale by CLHBid.com. The ranch will be offered for sale in 3 separate parcels, however, at the conclusion, eligible bidders wanting the entire ranch may bid ‘en bloc’ for all 3 Parcels. See details in the En Bloc parcel for details on how to qualify. Check the website from time to time for details.
