The Black Ranch offers a unique opportunity to own a large block of land in Northeastern Montana, excellently suited for use as seasonal pasture or a year-around ranching operation.
The Ranch was purchased by its’ current owners from the neighbors, a 3rd generation local ranching family, nearly 30 years ago. The Black Ranch has been a key component to the current owners’ expanding operation, now beginning into its’ 3rd generation. This ranches’ consistent ownership by an owner/operator is evident in the exceptional maintenance and management of the property.
This 35,000+/- acre ranch is entirely contiguous and includes 26,600+/- acres of BLM lease permits, beginning April 1st and running through October 31s. 4,680+/- of the ranch acres fall under State Lease and the remaining 3,710+/- acres are deeded.
The Black Ranch is a classic Northeastern Montana ranch, offering a wide range of native grasses typical to the area, including western wheat grass and blue grama. However, the topography of the ranch is extremely unique, with deep spring-fed, timber-filled coulees, bad lands and over 3.5 miles of Willow Creek, flanked by enough timber and cover to provide an ideal spring calving setting. Willow Creek is spring-fed, and therefore holds water year-around.
