Consideration to Agriculture

Historically this owner/operator ranch has ran 100-125 pairs in conjunction with 219 acres in Horse Prairie. As a stand-alone ranch it would lend itself to run approximately 80-100 pairs as rated by the owner. The ranch would also make a great addition to a larger outfit as a place to grow some hay and calve before moving to summer pasture.


The Bar 3 J Ranch is nicely improved with a 3br, 2ba circa 1967 home. It is in excellent shape with many recent upgrades and complete with a 2 car attached garage. A large shop building measuring 40X80 provides a place to repair and store equipment. -Working Corrals/night lot are complete with squeeze chute and are set up to load truck’s on-site.
