ACREAGE AND DETAILS
Historically it has been used as a working cattle ranch capitalizing on the rich vegetative diversity throughout the area. The lodgepole pine forest with mixed spruce and fir populating the upper south side of the ranch has been managed for timber within the past 15+ years and many access roads are in place. Livestock grazing is currently being permitted at a conservative level. Hay production on the ranch has been 1200 tons with fertilizer.
Habitat from high mountain timberlands to open grass prairie and river bottom meadows provide a rarely found diversity on private lands in Wyoming. Excellent wildlife populations, miles of private lands and adjacent public lands for added recreation, are another of the key points of this ranch.
Lower Mule Creek along the Medicine Bow River has 1,634 acres of adjudicated water for irrigated hay and pasture, haying about 475 acres, producing 1,200 tons of hay with fertilizer. The Upper Mule Creek has 342 acres currently used for irrigated pasture.
