ACREAGE AND DESCRIPTION
The LeBar Ranch contains 6280.86 acres of top quality pasture land. There are several hundred acres of land that was historically used for hay production; however, those lands have been incorporated in the summer pasture operation which has been ongoing for many years. The ranch is currently owned by an entity that operated the ranch by moving the cows to another owned ranch in Wyoming.
The ranch is operated in conjunction with the Trotter-Coal Creek Allotment which is a National Grasslands permit operated by the Forest Service office in Hot Springs, SD. The permit is approximately the same size as the deeded portion of the ranch and allows approximately 1,900 AUMs for the season. The permit could be obtained upon approval of the permit application from the Forest Service
The ranch and the permit are cross fenced into a number of pastures for rotational grazing. The ranch is watered by 27 ½ miles of pipe line scattered across the pastures along with a number of earthen reservoirs which capture runoff from snow and rain. The pipeline is supplied from a deep well at Igloo, South Dakota.
A modest home, three bedrooms, one bath bath, along with a set of corrals and a few minor outbuildings provide the primary improvements for the operation. While not elaborate, the improvements are adequate for the operation.
The soils on the ranch consist of Pierre clay complex and Manzanola silty clay loams.
All mineral rights owned by the seller will be conveyed
The LeBar Ranch offers a tremendous opportunity to own a top quality grass ranch priced at the money. The ranch could be run as a cow/calf operation and it would also be outstanding grass cattle operation. This solid grass ranch with good water characteristics combined with the favorable National Grasslands permit ($1.35 / AUM) adds up to a package that makes lots of cents.
