Comments:  
Seldom do you have an opportunity to purchase a highly productive ranch of this caliber in a good rainfall area with 220 growing days per year, and mild winters of 58° average.  This ranch consists of lots of bottom land with many pecan trees to open rolling hills.  The grasses have an excellent  blend of warm and cool season grasses with lots of clovers scattered throughout the ranch.  The 220 growing days puts the cattle in green pastures for approximately 9 months of the year.  The ranch has 40 pastures, 5 sets of working pens and several traps, 7 sets of sorting pens for working and handling the cattle with ease.  The pastures are well watered with 70 clear water ponds and lakes, some pastures having rural coop water to automatic waterers.  The ranch has good highway  frontage with high visibility  and an auction ring with a 30,000# scale.                               

This ranch would work very well for a registered cattle operation.  The excellent location of the ranch is also only 85 miles from the Oklahoma City Stockyards, the largest operating yards in the United States, an exceptional place to market cattle. The ranch has plenty of hay meadows to produce more than enough hay for the cattle, lots of hay barns to store the hay and equipment sheds for the equipment.  If you are looking for one of the better ranches in Oklahoma, don't  overlook this ranch.
