Nestled in Dawson County, this area is considered the rich inland agricultural area of eastern Montana and western North Dakota with the Yellowstone River providing a seasonal source of water for irrigation, livestock, domestic needs and recreation. Agriculture is the primary driver stimulating Dawson County economy. Out of 56 counties in 2012, Dawson ranked 7th for spring wheat production and 13th for winter wheat. Main crops produced in this area include winter wheat, spring wheat, barley, lentils, and hay. As a result of the peripheral areas in this vicinity being rugged, they are primarily managed for grazing and raising livestock. The rolling hills and benches throughout the county are then developed for dry land farming thus generating 88% of the county as agricultural land. Wind is a factor in the region creating a possible potential for wind development.
The avid outdoorsman will enjoy the unlimited recreational opportunities in this eastern Montana area. This particular property is located in hunting district 700, and wildlife in this area include Mule deer, White-tailed deer, antelope, ducks, geese, songbirds; eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, turkeys, prairie chickens, pheasants, coyotes, fox, badgers, raccoons, hares, and mountain lions.

Anglers can also pursue Sauger, Sturgeon, Walleye, and Largemouth Bass. Perhaps you aspire for a bit of a challenge and want to try your hand at catching the ever-popular but rare Paddlefish that move up the Yellowstone River from North Dakota's Lake Sakakawea.

Tucked in between the famous Badlands of the Dakotas and the mighty Yellowstone River is the town of Glendive. Glendive is county seat of Dawson County and conveniently provides amenities such as the Dawson Community Airport and Dawson Community College. Established by the Northern Pacific Railway, it was incorporated on October 7, 1902 and considered the hub city of the area. In addition to the railway, Glendive quickly became established as farming and ranching brought people to the fertile area. Ag is the primary driver of the economy of Dawson County, but the discovery of the abundant supply of oil also contributes to the growth of the area. The oil industry is projected to be around for at least another 20 years.
