All livestock producers know how hard it is to find extensive grass pastures in one block, especially a turnkey parcel with natural water sources and good fences.  Whether you are looking to get into the ranching industry, or grow your existing operation, ‘Rancher’s Dream’ is must-see and must have.  The stewards of this prime ranchland have decided to pass this ready-to-go pasture to a next-generation rancher.  ‘Rancher’s Dream’ has been a decades long asset that was a key pillar in the steward’s farming operation; this asset has fulfilled its primary purpose and provides many additional benefits and opportunities. 

This lush, green pasture is comprised of 22 contiguous quarter sections and boasts good, four-wire perimeter fencing.  ‘Rancher’s Dream’ is crossed-fenced into six different pastures for optimum rotational grazing.  All pastures have been carefully thought out for easy gathering in the fall or weaning time, allowing the rancher to funnel livestock into smaller paddocks with water where the sorting corrals and loading chute are located.

The current stewards of this pasture have more than 30 years of blood, sweat and tears into this land, and it has been their pride and joy.  With hundreds of thousands of dollars and countless hours invested into improvements put into this parcel over this time, there is a possibility of applying to increase the already significant AUMs. 

‘Rancher’s Dream’ is a grazing lease that consists of 3,495 acres with 685 AUMs, two creeks that flow through the property, and multiple springs.  If that's not enough water for you, there are also seven dugouts (PFRA approved) that are all 12 feet deep and measure 60 feet by 80 feet.  There is no shortage of grass or water to put the pounds on your livestock throughout the grazing season.  Six areas have been cleared for additional grazing plots with approximately 160 acres of available Humic Moraine Grassland.  Cattlemen know how livestock love this type of grass and do very well with it.    

Not only is this rare parcel a ‘Rancher's Dream,’ but it is also home to big game, including world class whitetail bucks, moose, black bears, and upland game birds, and is the epitome of the outdoorsmen’s happy place.  While riding, whether on your quad or horse, make sure you stop to have a healthy snack from one of the wild blueberry or saskatoon patches that this property offers.  

Crown land borders the north end of ‘Rancher’s Dream’ and a Community Pasture is situated on the west side.  If you are looking for some cowboys to mend the fence or pasture ride, the stars have aligned as ‘Rancher’s Dream’ is in cowboy country.  It gets even better: ‘Rancher’s Dream’ receives an average of over 16 inches of rainfall each summer, ensuring the grass continues growing and pounds go on your animals.  Did we mention the approximate $20,000 in annual Surface Lease Revenue?  With ongoing opportunity for development including upcoming Carbon Capture Projects, this parcel has significant potential for additional revenue coming soon.  This is an opportunity that just does not come along very often. 

Ranchers: don't look back 20 years from now and regret missing out on this rare opportunity!
