Heitschmidt Ranch

Sold Texas Cattle Ranch 

Comments:    Location is a great asset for this property, sitting on the south side of I 30

and the east side of US Hwy. 259. A blacktop road that runs through the ranch allows

easy access to all pastures. Northeast Texas is known for its good productive soils and

abundant rainfall. Approximately 47 inches of scattered rain throughout the year produces lots of early cool seasonal grasses. The long growing days and mild winters make ranching a pleasure in this part of Texas. The ranch is approximately 90% open, making almost the entire ranch productive. The corrals, with a hydraulic chute, sorting ally and a 6 way sorting tub, make working cattle an easy chore for this ranch. The 140 acre hay meadow, consisting of Tifton 85 bermuda mixed with coastal Bermuda, produces an abundance of hay for your winter needs.


The 50'x150’ hay barn stores 800 rolls of 5’x6’ bales to keep the hay dry and clean for the winter feed. If you are looking for an open, very productive ranch, convenient access and easy to operate give us a call on this one.
