The Springback Ranch has been operated as a small, year-around cattle ranch with a herd of approximately 68 mother cows. Supplemental feeding is required during the winter months.
Much of the fencing has been replaced with new post and wire.
The ranch is well watered with Springback Creek (North Fork of Salt Trough Creek), Brokenback Creek, Carothers Lake, and three deep wells, two of which supply domestic water to the home and barn. The creeks flow from the north to the south.
The ranch has approximately 50 irrigated acres (according to the assessors records); however, the current owner flood irrigates (with some use of gated pipe) approximately 74 acres. Hay is harvested once each season with a typical yield of 130 tons. Soils on the ranch are of sandy loam mixes of the Spearfish-Neville-Travessilla formation. The average annual precipitation is 11 inches, according to the NRCS. The average frost-free period is 110-130 days. The elevation ranges from 4,400 to 5,230 above sea level.
The property has good water rights and the various sources, which include three artesian wells, two reservoirs and Carothers Lake, provide an abundant supply of water for irrigation purposes, livestock and wildlife. Water right information is available upon request from Pearson Real Estate Co., Inc.
The ranch headquarters lie 2 miles off County Road 78 access from the ranch entrance is via a rock-based private road. Improvements include:
A historic barn with loft that has been well maintained and has a new metal roof.
An older residence (built in 1914) that has been minimally remodeled and is livable but may require future investment depending on new owners planned use.
A 1,344 sq. ft. manufactured home (1999) utilized as housing for employees.

A 3-stall metal garage (1,500 sq. ft.) with concrete floor and electricity.
