The ZIMMERSCHIED RANCH is located in a very scenic area northwest of Sundance in Crook County, WY. 2,880 deeded acres; 160 acre BLM lease. A well-established cattle ranch that has been in the same family for 71 years. There are 211 acres of dryland/sub-irrigated farm land lying along the Cabin Creek drainage; the remainder is strong grass land.
The owners have always been able to harvest hay from the meadows lying along Cabin Creek, which flows through the northern part of the ranch for about 2 miles. The ranch is cross-fenced into ten pastures and has an abundance of livestock water from reservoirs, wells, one windmill and Cabin Creek. Approximately 3,000 feet of stock water pipeline provides water to hydrants and tanks in seven of the pastures. The present owners of the ranch do not own any livestock.
For the past few years, they have been taking in cattle during the summer months on an extremely limited basis. Consequently, because of sufficient moisture and reduced cattle numbers, the available feed/vegetation is plentiful. Historically, the ranch was utilized as a year-around cow/calf operation with supplemental feeding in the winter. However, an alternative use would be for a seasonal yearling cattle operation (about five months).
Note: Carrying capacity may vary due to weather conditions and management practices. Interested parties should conduct their own analysis prior to purchasing.
The topography of the ranch consists of timbered ridges sloping down to open meadows and open range land. The elevation ranges from 4,106 to 4,405 above sea level. According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), the average annual precipitation in the area is 11 inches. Excellent set of facilities including a very nice residence, an older residence, a barn, 2 sets of corrals, a garage/shop, and miscellaneous other outbuildings.
