ACREAGE AND DESCRIPTION
The Burnette Creek Ranch offers 200+/- deeded acres, with 102+/- acres of dryland hay, 35+/- acres of grazing and 5+/- acres of wild hay. The dryland and wild hay acreages double as grazing land for a good portion of the year. The property is perimeter fenced and cross fenced, currently pasturing 28 heifers. All is fenced with 4 wire barb wire and in excellent condition.
Located on the middle fork of Burnette Creek, the property is watered by multiple springs providing an artesian well which has a constant flow of approximately 4-5 gallons per minute. With the installed pressure system, the water is distributed throughout the property with 2.5 inch underground water lines providing water to the home, garage/shop building, 4 hydrants and a frost-free water system in the corrals. Just west of the log home is the pond, frequently enjoyed by waterfowl in the area.
HAY & GRAZING
The dryland and wild hay acres generally yield approximately 1 to 1.25 tons of harvested dry hay per acre per year. In most years the hay acreages are managed for hay production with the re-growth then managed for livestock grazing. Grazing lands in this general area of Fergus County are able to sustainably support livestock at the rate of approximately 1.5 to 2 acres per Animal Unit Month with proper management. Located in the Judith Mountain foothills, this environment provides moisture conditions that are generally favorable for this type of multiple use management. 25065-01172
