Welcome to ‘Valley L at Virden.’ This majestic ranch consists of over 1,000 contiguous acres of highly fertile soil and looks down over the breathtaking Assiniboine river valley in the heart of Manitoba’s diverse landscape. The land base of ‘Valley L at Virden’ was assembled and then augmented yearly and is now set to swing open the gates and welcome its new owner after the sale day on September 12th, 2022.
The connection between equine athlete and rider is paramount to success in the sport of Rodeo and this is especially evident in the precise teamwork necessary in the tie-down roping event. The gift of a superstar horse might only come along a few times in a lifetime, as those in the game can attest. The horse that backs in the box every time perfectly, scores like a champion regardless of the arena, runs hard, and works rope, is truly a work of art; one could say that every detail and every step matters.
The Brown family followed similar details and steps over the years when it came to raising their horses and constructing their ranch. From world-renowned six-horse hitches to breeding superstar barrel racing and rope horses, no detail or step has been overlooked in the barn or out on the ranch itself.
The Brown family have been pillars in the Virden community for generations, and ‘Valley L at Virden' is the ranch many know and have come to love. The unmatched equine facilities and the open-door policy have contributed to decades worth of memories that family and friends have created. Now the Browns are ready for the next chapter in their lives. The benefactor of their decades of hard work and attention to detail will be the higher bidders on sale day. Who says dreams cannot be purchased?
Much like finding elite horses that are available for purchase, it is rare for such an exclusive ranch to come on the market. 'Valley L at Virden' is the ranch that has stayed in the family for decades. A ranch such as ‘Valley L at Virden’ may sometimes be imitated but could never be duplicated. The key ingredients to any successful ranch are water, fertile soil, ample rainfall and excellent management. ‘Valley L at Virden’ checks all these boxes and more.
PARCEL 1 consists of a total of 480 acres and includes the ranch headquarters. The mature yard is set up perfectly for the equine or cattleman buyer. Boasting extensive infrastructure, a cattle producer may want to utilize the barn for those cold January calving nights or continue to use it as an equine training facility. There are indoor and outdoor riding arenas, a sizeable metal-clad pole building, and a country home ideal for raising a family. The yard is set up for year-round active use. There is plenty of water for livestock, and the pipe corrals with shelters are ready for the new owner to swing open the gates and utilize. This parcel is the perfect mixture of hay, with plenty of pasture, and stunning views over the river valley, not to mention the opportunity to increase the number of arable acres if one so chooses.
PARCEL 2 is comprised of 560 acres that are currently in hay and pasture. Parcel 2 is a large, open, well-maintained assemblage ideal for a grain farmer looking to expand or a livestock farmer looking to continue ranching. The county road along the eastern boundary provides excellent access, and the fences are livestock ready. Parcel 2 includes access to river pasture and idyllic views seemingly plucked from a Hollywood Western.

As everyone knows, there is a significant output of funds to build new, not to mention the investment of time. ‘Valley L at Virden’ is truly turn-key.
