Since 1942, two generations of Boyers have ranched in the Wet Mountain Valley, rimmed by the magnificent Sangre de Cristo Mountains and surrounded by 10,000-14,000 ft. peaks. With approximately 12,505 total acres (11,380 deeded and 1,125 state of Colorado leased acres), the Boyer Ranch is located six miles south of the charming town of Westcliffe and runs south for an additional eight miles. Just an hour and a half from Colorado Springs and minutes from the jet capable Silver West Airport, the ranch is an assemblage of homesteads from the late 1800s and is well watered with over 18 CFS of water rights, seasonal streams, multiple runoff ponds, three artesian wells filling two large ponds and 10 wells. The ranch irrigates 700 acres - putting up an average 1,200 tons of premium high-altitude, native grass hay each year. Historically running 500-550 cow/calf pairs, the ranch has recently been used as a hay/grazing ranch running 900-1,000 yearling cattle for six months, selling all of the hay. Improvements consist of two modest homes and a bunkhouse, two wood barns, several loafing sheds, three large steel hay barns, shop/garage, and a good set of working corrals and scale. Large numbers of antelope range freely on the ranch with elk migrating through at various times along with turkey and occasional black bear. One artesian pond is stocked with trout and the ranch is close to National Forest and several mountain trailheads. Contact Ron Morris
