One of the owners of the Mussigbrod Ranch says he enjoys the view of the Beaverhead Mountains every morning from the porch over his cup of coffee. Looking at the view last week with some clients, we can appreciate why. The same family has operated this ranch since the mid-1960’s. The ranch has abundant irrigation from Mussigbrod Lake storage and Mussigbrod Creed. The ranch borders USFS, and is a neighbor to the Anaconda Pintlar Wilderness Area. Mussigbrod Lake is a few miles from the headquarters with a great sandy beach at the end where you can find some Grayling Trout at the spillway. This ranch has about 1280 total acres +/-, with 850-900 acres irrigated or sub-irrigated. The Big Hole has the abundance of native grass that is the envy of the cattle producer. The ranch has a good set of corrals to work cattle and two ranch homes on the property. Historic ranches in this part of Montana don’t come on the market very often and we are proud to offer this picturesque and productive ranch.

Call Gary Love 406-660-0176 or Mary Ann Nicholas 406-660-0339 for additional information on this offering or to schedule a showing to qualified buyers. It doesn’t get much better than this.

The grass is growing in the Big Hole Valley and cattle on Mussigbrod Lake Ranch are on lots of green grass
