Turnkey Cattle Ranch with Hunting & Recreational Land For Sale in Shell, WY
The Red Canyon Ranch is located in Shell, Wyoming, in the shadow of the Big Horn Mountains. Comprised of 2000 deeded acres, this is one of the finest cattle ranch operations in Northern Wyoming. The scenery, wildlife and awe-inspiring beauty of the ranch and surrounding mountains is hard to beat, anywhere in the Rocky Mountains. The operation is divided into two parcels, each of which compliment the other. The ranch is set up to easily run 200 cow/calf pairs year-round, plus replacement heifers, and bulls. The ranch combines quality rangeland pastures with State, BLM and highly coveted National Forest grazing leases, which allows for an exceptional grazing program.
Unlike most ranch properties, the Red Canyon Ranch’s year-round grazing minimizes the need for feeding hay through the winter months. Crop production includes high quality alfalfa, corn winter wheat and pinto beans. With senior water rights, irrigation is gravity fed and diesel pump for the two pivots. Originating high in the Big Horn Mountains, Red Canyon Creek bisects the length of the ranch for about four and half miles. The cottonwood tree lined riparian corridor provides irrigation water, stock water for cattle and habitat for the abundant wildlife.
For the hunting minded buyer, this Wyoming Cattle Ranch has some of the best elk, deer and antelope hunting in the state, and qualifies for land owner tags for each species. Other wildlife on the ranch and in the surrounding public lands are black bears, moose, turkeys, pheasants, and grouse. The land on the ranch varies from lush irrigated pastures and hay fields to rolling rangeland pastures, to high mountain passes on the Big Horn National Forest grazing lease allotments.
Many cattle ranches of this size and capacity in Wyoming start at much higher prices. The quality of the cattle and farming operations, wildlife, hunting and recreational opportunities and quality of life in northern Wyoming found on the Red Canyon Ranch simply cannot be found anywhere else.
