The Reversed EV Ranch lies just 20 miles east of Glendive, Montana and 15 miles from the North Dakota border, consisting of 5,251+/- contiguous deeded acres and 320 acres of State Lease. The ranch is accessed primarily by Interstate 94, with the nearest commercial airport located in Glendive, an Eastern Montana town of approximately 4,800 residents. All ranch acres are currently utilized as grazing for livestock, with cross fencing in place dividing the ranch into 8 pastures for rotational grazing. The ranch is well watered, with 6 wells on the property, one of which servicing 10+/- miles of pipeline and 15 water tanks. Box Elder Creek runs throughout the ranch, filling well placed reservoirs with spring runoff and seasonal rains. Although no longer farmed, 640 acres of the property have been farmed in the past and are well suited to be utilized as a hay base for the ranches’ cattle operation. Current owners rate the ranch for 200-250 cow/calf pairs.

A metal sided shop measuring 30’ x 48’ was constructed in 2008, followed in 2017 by a 50’ x 70’ metal sided barn. A 25’ x 70’ lean-to was added in 2018. A second barn constructed in 1962 measures 20’ x 60’. A working set of corrals is in place as well as 5 smaller pasture lots equipped with windbreak fencing and bunk lined feeders.
Beaver Hill Divide, just north of the property, splits the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers and provides excellent mule deer hunting on the ranch. Various ash bottom draws throughout the ranch provide cover for the ranches’ upland game bird population and the occasional whitetail deer.
