The Wyoming Winter-Calving Operation is business opportunity backed by a property developed for livestock wintering services which provides the feed base and facilities to winter and calve out 3,000 cows from November through April. The farm located in Central Wyoming is located 8 miles West of Riverton, Wyoming just off Highway 20/26. The area is well known as a feed production area in Wyoming due to plentiful water supplies, productive lands and mild, open winters. Situated on just over 1,000 acres, the operation involves growing 10,000 Tons of corn silage and 2000 tons of alfalfa hay complete with feeding and calving facilities consisting of living quarters, shops, barns, corrals, lots and feeding paddocks. The operation is a value-added business providing feed and service to livestock producers. The improvements are mostly newer and well designed for the business. The land is well fenced and capable of handling livestock with facilities in place for handling, feeding, watering and calving large groups of cattle. Adjoining lands offer further investment in a solar development program.
During the growing season the Wyoming Winter-Calving Operation produces 10,000 Tons of Corn Silage and 2,000 Tons of Alfalfa Hay which in the winter is fed to 3000 cows that can also be calved and prepped for spring delivery to surrounding grass ranches. The operations are very efficient handling cow groups of 500 700 head, with one operator feeding the entire herd and depending on time of season, one to three herdsmen caring for and calving the entire herd. A large mixer feedtruck and loader is used to feed the cows in bunks in large paddocks with 500+ head cow groups. The alleys, lots and calving facilities are strategically designed to efficiently handle the livestock. An excellent water system with a deep well ( 1050), pumping 68 gpm, feeds frost free drinkers in both feeding paddocks and feedlot pens. The livestock counts consist of 2000 head of customer cattle from different area operators and 1000 head of leased cattle.
