YOUR NEW PROPERTY AWAITS
“My experience with you as a Realtor has been almost too good to be true-especially after seeing some others in practice. I think the two things that stand out the most were the quickness in which you returned my inquires-phone calls and emails-and how you explained each process in a way that I could understand. In each profession it is easy to use a “language” that often leaves the customer just nodding their head but not really understanding what is happening. You took the time to explain each step and before I signed the “dotted line” I did know what was happening. I also appreciated the professional, yet kind way you dealt with the circumstances that went with the last sale. Fruit of the Spirit flowing from you!”

What is a ranch?
A ranch is an area of land, including various structures, given primarily to the practice of ranching, the practice of raising grazing livestock such as cattle and sheep most often applies to livestock-raising operation in the Western United States, though there are ranches in other areas. People who own or operate a ranch are called ranchers, cattlemen, or stockgrowers. Ranching is also a method used to raise less common livestock such as horses, elk, American bison or even ostrich, emu, and alpaca.
Ranches generally consist of large areas, but may be of nearly any size. In the western United States, many ranches are a combination of privately owned land supplemented by grazing leases on land under the control of the federal Bureau of Land Management or the United States Forest Service. If the ranch includes arable or irrigated land, the ranch may also engage in a limited amount of farming, raising crops for feeding the animals, such as hay and feed grains.
What is it like owning a ranch?
Owning a ranch can provide intangible benefits such as uninterrupted family time and the enjoyment of nature. Choose your property wisely and manage the land carefully, and ranches can provide tangible benefits as well. Well-run working ranches can yield 1 percent to 3 percent of income annually.
