Huddleston OC Ranch For Sale 11,645.7 Acres Garza/Kent Counties, Texas

Location: The OC Ranch is extremely well located between Lubbock and Snyder in southeastern Garza County and southwestern Kent County. The ranch headquarters is approximately 2.5 miles from the most northern portions of Lake Alan Henry. The property is in two nearby tracts, The Headquarters Division, and the western portion, known as The 5 Sections. A paved county road provides access to the western portion of the property (The 5 Sections), and well maintained and improved gravel county roads provide access to the eastern portion of the property, The Headquarters Division. These county roads dead-end at the property and all exterior gates can be locked.

Terrain: The OC Ranch is fenced and cross-fenced into approximately 16 native grass pastures. Additionally, approximately 1,165 acres of the property is cultivated land, fenced into 4 pastures, which allowed Mr. Huddleston to rotate his cattle and maximize production. The cultivated land has been typically planted to wheat and grazed seasonally. Overall, exterior and pasture fences are in very good condition.

The Headquarters Division of the OC Ranch is considered to be gently rolling with elevations from about 2,050 feet up to about 2,400 feet. Beautiful and rugged bluffs descend from the productive uplands which overlook the southeastern portion of the property, where the Brazos River flows through the ranch for approximately 3/4 mile. The cultivated portion of the ranch, approximately 1,165 acres, is located on this division of the property.

The western division of the ranch has paved frontage and is known as “The 5 Sections.” It also is considered to be gently rolling overall, with elevations in the range of 2,300-2,450′. With the exception of a couple of hundred acres of eroded “badlands”, this portion of the property has a very good grass turf, is generally very open, productive and scenic.

One pasture, containing approximately 690 acres, has a canopy of shinnery mixed with some scattered mesquite.

It has been reported that just a year or so after buying the ranch that Mr. Huddleston purchased one of the first excavators in the area to bring to the OC Ranch to begin clearing brush. From that day on, brush work was a major part of the operation on the property. Today, there is very little to virtually no mesquite in many of the pastures. Several of the draws have canopies of hackberry, several varieties of browse, scattered mesquite and cedar in areas that are not easily accessible with heavy equipment. These pockets of brush offer quality habitat for wildlife, which can normally be viewed in the early mornings and late evenings on the wheat fields. The native grass turf is in excellent condition thanks to years of good conservation practices by Mr. Huddleston.

Mr. Huddleston always had a goal to sell one million dollars’ worth of calves off of the ranch in one year, and at one time, prior to the sale of the three sections to the City of Lubbock, Mr. Huddleston reportedly sold $985,000 worth of calves off of the OC Ranch. He was very proud of that fact, however, presently, it is reported that the ranch is stocked with approximately 530 cows. Mr. Huddleston felt that by grazing the wheat seasonally and having the ability to rotate on and off of the wheat as needed doubled his carrying capacity without damaging his native turf.

Water: Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Huddleston the ranch is now considered to be very well watered. There are over 25 earthen ponds on the entire property, many of which are large and deep. Several of the larger ponds are stocked with fish, and overall, fishing is reported to be extremely good. A private lake containing over 14 acres, known as “Little Henry Lake” is located just north of the ranch headquarters. This lake is deep and has been stocked with bass for years. Numerous bass over 10 pounds have come out of this lake with a few reaching to about 15 pounds. Many of these ponds, especially the larger ones, were built by Mr. Huddleston.

Many years ago, when the City of Lubbock began construction of Lake Alan Henry, approximately 3 sections of land belonging to Mr. Huddleston were sold to the city. This land is located near the dam and spillway, south of the main body of the ranch. Mr. Huddleston shrewdly negotiated for one of only 2 taps on the entire waterline system that runs from the lake to the city of Lubbock. Along with the tap, the OC Ranch receives 20 acre feet of water annually free of charge.

The Lake Alan Henry main waterline runs across The Headquarters Division of the OC Ranch west of the headquarters improvements (See Map in the back of this Brochure). There is a water tap dedicated exclusively to the ranch on the city waterline. From this tap there is an extensive network of private waterlines with drinking troughs that furnish livestock water over a major portion of The Headquarters Division and also serve the structural improvements at the headquarters. The Lake Alan Henry water is raw lake water; however, Mr. Huddleston installed a well designed reverse osmosis (R/O) water filtration system that is used to service the headquarter improvements.

The western portion of the ranch, “The 5 Sections” is also considered to be well watered. Water to this division is furnished by several large earthen ponds as well as an electric water well that serves a pipeline system and several drinking troughs.

Hunting/Recreation: The OC Ranch is located in an area rich in wildlife, and the wildlife definitely benefits from the management practices in place on the property. Whitetail and mule deer are both viewed regularly in good numbers, with quail, turkey and migratory birds being common, as well as aoudad in the more rugged breaks.

Of extreme benefit to the OC Ranch, the City of Lubbock owns several sections of land south of The Headquarters Division that is considered a sanctuary or wildlife mitigation area.

The main ramp at Lake Alan Henry can be accessed from the OC Ranch headquarters in only a few minutes and fishing and summer recreation activities on this lake are well known.

Improvements: The OC Ranch is considered to be very well improved, and as stated previously, the improvements appear to have been very well maintained. The ranch headquarters consist of the main home, where Mr. and Mrs. Huddleston lived, a nice ranch manager’s home, guest home, the main working/shipping pens, as well as sheds, barns and outbuildings. The 5 Sections Division to the west has a cinder-block house used for employees, as well as two additional sets of livestock shipping pens.

The main shipping pens at the ranch headquarters consists of a covered working area, Silencer hydraulic chute, ratcheting gate system and a well designed set of traps and alleys.

Mr. Huddleston was very proud of his ranch, and he was always looking for ways to improve the quality and productivity of his property. As a testament to his vision and love for the land, when the highway department was rebuilding nearby US Highway 84, Mr. Huddleston acquired many truckloads of their discarded road material and hauled it to the ranch, spreading this good road base over many miles of private ranch roads. Additionally, there is a dirt landing strip located just south of the headquarters improvements.

Remarks: Chas. S. Middleton and Son had a long term business relationship with Mr. Huddleston, and our firm actually handled the sale of this property when he purchased the ranch in approximately 1970. Mr. Huddleston was a well known farmer and cowman from Scurry County, Texas. He personally operated the property, lived on the ranch for many years, and continuously improved this land from the day he purchased it until the day he passed away, earlier this year.

Being the brokers who handled this sale for Mr. Huddleston, we were very familiar with the ranch at the time he purchased it, and can attest to the fact that he improved what once was a very brushy, poorly watered, marginally improved ranch into one of the premier working cattle ranches in this area of Texas. Mr. Huddleston spent countless hours clearing mesquite, placing quality soils in productive farmland for wheat pasture, adding substantial water features to the property, building quality fences, updating and maintaining the improvements that were on the ranch at the time of purchase and adding additional needed structural improvements. Without question, his pride of ownership and love for the land is apparent.

Price: Without question, the OC Ranch is one of the best working ranches in this part of the state and the property is ready to own, operate and enjoy. This ranch is a true pleasure to show and our firm is very proud to have been selected as the real estate firm to market and handle the sale of this outstanding ranch.

The ranch is being offered for sale for $1,100 per acre. Considering the amount of work that has gone into this property over the years, including, but not limited to the construction and maintenance of the improvements, the large private lake, the construction of multiple large ponds, the addition of the waterline system and numerous concrete drinking troughs, the extensive brush work and mesquite/cedar grubbing, fencing, as well as root plowing all of the land placed into cultivation, this ranch is very realistically priced and could not be duplicated at this price level on today’s market.

Mr. Huddleston was well known in this area and was very well respected and liked by everyone we have met. His beloved OC Ranch is a truly remarkable place and whoever buys this property is getting a reputation ranch they will be proud to own.

An inventory of the current rolling stock located on the property is available, and the rolling stock, including farm tractors, implements, etc. may be available for purchase separately. There is a very quality cow herd on the property that may be available for purchase as well.

871.73 Deeded Acre Sumpter Johnson Mesa Ranch For Sale in Colxax County, New Mexico

Location: The Sumpter Ranch is well located on Johnson Mesa, approximately 20 highway miles east of Raton, New Mexico.

Acres: 871.73 Deeded Acres

Terrain: Johnson Mesa is widely known as one of the most productive ranching areas of the state, and additionally offers panoramic 360 degree scenic views with the added benefit of wildlife/hunting.

Johnson Mesa is a well-defined, prominent mesa plateau located east of Raton, New Mexico and just west of the small community of Folsom, New Mexico. This elevated

mesa plateau extends in a westerly to easterly direction approximately 20 miles and is generally 4-6 miles wide from north to south. Elevations on the open plains country at the foot of Johnson Mesa generally range from 6,500 – 7,000 feet. Elevations on top of Johnson Mesa range from 8,000 – 8,700 feet. This dramatic increase in elevation on the mesa provides a top-of-the-world view of the surrounding country side, overlooking the lower plains country below. From the mesa edge on the Sumpter Ranch, one can view Capulin Peak and Sierra Grande in the far distance. Johnson Mesa is characterized as a lava-topped tableland created from past volcanic eruptions.

Several volcanic cones, such as Red Mountain, Towndrow Peak and Dale Mountain rise approximately 400 feet above the surrounding mesa upland areas.

Elevations over much of the Sumpter Ranch range from 8,000 – 8,150 feet; however, a major drainageway, known as Uña de Gato enters the property near the northwest corner and meanders through the north-half of the ranch in a southeasterly direction. Intermittent holes of creek water are found along Uña de Gato.

This creek is very accessible throughout the north-half of the property. The creek has rocky side slopes and a sprinkling of brush cover in this area of the ranch. On the far eastern edge of the property, the creek transitions into a significant, very deep and rugged canyon, with sheer fractured rock ledges creating a natural operational boundary for the eastern portion of the ranch. This steep canyon escarpment area does not follow the true ownership boundary, with a small portion of the ranch being in the bottom of the canyon, and an estimated 20 or more acres of the neighbor’s country being on top of the elevated mesa uplands. In other words, from an operational standpoint, it appears that the Sumpter Ranch gains an additional 20 acres or so of neighboring land that cannot be accessed by the landowner to the east.

Oak motts, mountain mahogany and locust trees are found on rocky hillsides and side slope areas of the ranch. Large ponderosa pine, spruce and fir are found in dense concentrations in the rugged canyon areas.

Soils are deep and fertile on the level portions of the property and become very rocky on the side slopes and hilly areas. Rock outcroppings are generally described as volcanic malpai/lava rocks,

which give the soil and grass tremendous strength and fertility. The ranch has a lush cover of high elevation grasses, being grama, fescue, western wheatgrass and bluestem. Native grass vegetation

on Johnson Mesa is widely recognized as some of the best the state has to offer, and summer gains often exceed 300 pounds for the season (middle of May through October 1st – 15th) for yearling cattle.

While much of the Sumpter Ranch has an open appearance, pockets of brush and scattered trees offer favorable habitat for mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, turkey and black bear. Additionally, the heavily timbered Uña de Gato Canyon area adjoining the property on the east provides exceptional cover and habitat for mule deer and elk. In the early mornings and late afternoons, it is very common for wildlife to leave the protected canyon cover in order to graze on the productive Johnson Mesa pasture lands. Historically, the focus of the property has been seasonal grazing of yearling type cattle, but good hunting opportunities exist on the property.

Because of the high altitude, summers have very pleasurable moderate temperatures, and winters can be harsh. At times, the highway extending through Johnson Mesa will be closed during the winter months because of excessive snow. This snow, however, jump starts the country as temperatures warm in the summer, and native grass vegetation normally excels during the growing season, offering tremendous grazing opportunities from May – October. Typically, Johnson Mesa receives 19 – 20 inches of moisture during the year.

Water: The Sumpter Ranch is well watered with pockets of natural water along Uña de Gato, numerous earthen ponds, an electric submersible well located at the old ranch headquarters, and an electric solar well, which is located about mid-way into the ranch. An old set of ranch headquarter improvements are located on the property, but these structures have not been occupied in many years.

Access: Access to the property is provided by paved highway.

Price: The Sumpter Ranch is offered for sale at $1,400 per acre. One-half of the seller’s mineral interest will convey with the property. Property taxes are extremely reasonable, being approximately $420 per year.

The Sumpter Ranch is located in an area (Johnson Mesa) where ranch properties are typically passed down from generation to generation, and a property such as the Sumpter is seldom offered for sale.

We view this offering as a rare opportunity to purchase some of the most productive ranch country in Northeastern New Mexico. Please consider this outstanding offering.

Adams Ranch

Third Generation Texas Ranch For Sale in Terrell & Val Verde Counties

Location: The Adams Ranch is located approximately 34 miles south of Sheffield in the big deer country of Terrell and Val Verde Counties, Texas. This is a transitional area between the Edwards Plateau and Trans Pecos, widely recognized as some of the best and most challenging hunting in the state.

Acres: 22,375.6 Acres

Terrain: The terrain is somewhat varied, mainly consisting of gently rolling uplands sloping to two main draws that run through the ranch. Big Fielder Draw is located on the northern portion of the ranch and Osman Draw runs through the central portion of the property. The western portion of the property slopes west towards a major canyon located west of the ranch. Elevations on the property are typically around 2,000 to 2,100 feet.

Limestone rock outcroppings are common and soils are generally rocky. Of interest, a large cave or sinkhole is located on the western portion of the property that is reported to be very deep. Grass turf is considered to be in good condition and cover is diverse, with many varieties of native brush common to this area, including mesquite, cedar and greasewood being prevelant. Other varieties of brush and browse include sotol, cenezio, catclaw, blackbrush, desert willow, ocotillo, lotebush, and some scattered oak.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered. An electric water well is located at the ranch headquarters. This well supplies water to a large poly storage and several drinkers around the old headquarters area and traps. Three solar water wells supply water to various portions of the ranch, and all are equipped with water storage reservoirs. Two of the solar wells supply water to drinkers by several miles of waterline. Additionally, one operating windmill is located in the southern portion of the property. This mill also furnishes a large storage reservoir and supplies water to drinkers by waterline. Wells, waterlines and drinkers appear to be in good working condition and most of the waterline is buried.

Improvements: The Adams Ranch has typically been operated as a cow/calf operation. The property is fenced into eleven pastures with two traps.

The ranch headquarters discussed earlier consists of an older home utilized through the hunting season by hunters. A few old lean-to’s and sheds still exist, but overall, there are no usable structural improvements on the property.

Access: The Adams Ranch is considered to be fairly remote, with access being provided by maintained county roads. This area is sparsely populated and offers unmatched panoramic views for miles and miles. The small ranching community of Dryden is located approximately 15 miles west and Pumpville is about 11 miles south of the ranch.

Two maintained county roads, Pumpville Road and Fielder Draw Road, run through the ranch from Highway 349. These county roads run all the way through the ranch and lead to Pumpville and Pandale. Additionally, a well improved private road has recently been constructed along the southern boundary of the ranch for over six miles. A new fence that serves the Adams Ranch was installed along this road. This road was built to serve a rural subdivision which is located west of the Adams Ranch. The Adams Ranch has access on this adjoining road and there are gates into the property that can be locked. This private road and the county roads give year round access through the property and make getting across the ranch very easy.

Hunting/Recreation: Whitetail deer flourish in this region of Texas and this area is known to produce true trophy bucks. Bobwhite and blue quail are also very common, as are javelina and occasionally feral hogs and turkey. Dove hunting in this area is generally very good. Terrell County and the northern zone in Val Verde County both allow the harvest of two whitetail bucks. Both counties also offer a mule deer season, and mule deer are known to be in the area.

Remarks: There are several rural subdivisions in the general area of the Adams Ranch. This property has a lot to offer a cowman, sportsman, recreation buyer, developer or investor.

Price: Priced very realistically at only $325 per acre, and with annual property taxes of about $6,000 per year, it would be hard to find a more economical ranch with the added bonus of long term upside potential.

Acres: 623.21 Acres

Terrain: The property is gently rolling with a seasonal creek running generally north to south through the middle of the tract. The creek is lined with large Bodark trees. The property has an open appearance, with only a sparse amount of mesquite. Rolling hills give the property great elevation change and views for 20 plus miles in any direction.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered with 10 earthen ponds scattered through the property along with a co-op waterline (municipal quality water) running along the west side of the ranch. There are currently three taps available on this line. There are also scattered water wells in the vicinity.

Improvements: The Reding Ranch is modestly improved with an older single family residence, storage sheds, barns, stock pens and pipe corrals. The house is approximately 2,500 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. The house has not been lived in for five plus years so it needs some TLC.

Hunting/Recreation: Bird hunting is good and the numerous ponds provide excellent water fowl habitat. All ponds have been stocked for many years with the fishing reportedly being very good.

Price: $9,000 per acre

Remarks: This very well located property is currently zoned “RD-5”, Rural Residential District. The property is zoned for rural residential uses but is currently operated as a cow/calf ranching operation. This prime location offers tremendous development potential. Pastures have been well maintained with the elimination of mesquite and protecting the native grass with a very conservative stocking rate. Portions of the property are typically over seeded to wheat for additional seasonal grazing. The elevation changes, views and clean pastures make this a horse lover’s dream. The Redding Ranch is surrounded by highly improved horse properties and is only a few miles south of Lake Ray Roberts. It is not often that a property of this size with this many options and close proximity to the Dallas-Ft. Worth growth corridor comes on the market in this desirable area.

Acres: 2,019 Acres

Terrain: Terrain is gently rolling and hilly over much of the property with a fairly large mesa on the northwestern portion of the ranch. Some hills and side slopes run through the property in the eastern, central and northern portions.

Water: The ranch is watered by several dirt tanks as well as a windmill. Electricity is available on the county road that fronts the property as well.

Both bobwhite and blue quail species are present on the Scharlach Ranch, and on my inspection of the property in July over 100 coveys of quail were viewed or flushed on the ranch. It is my personal opinion that Mitchell County produces more quail year in and year out than any other area in the Rolling Plains of Texas.

Whitetail deer numbers are good in this area and turkey are very common. Migratory bird hunting in this area is also known to be exceptional.

A foodplot containing approximately 8 acres is located in the eastern portion of the property, and another field of approximately 12 acres is located on the northern portion of the property. These fields are generally planted to wheat or other grains and are a magnet to wildlife. Other areas of the property would be suitable for cultivated fields as well.

New Mexico Mountain Property For Sale in Rio Arriba County

Location: The entrance to Hutch Curve is approximately 16 miles east of Tierra Amarilla on Highway 64.

Acres: 77.73 Deeded pristine mountain top acres

Terrain: Terrain varies from beautiful rolling open parks and meadows to moderately steep dense conifer forests to rolling solitary and mixed aspen stands. Primary grass forage is mountain brome, some timothy, native bluestem, and strawberry clover. In early summer, there are seas of wildflowers including wild blue iris, mountain columbine, daisies, yellow rose bushes, and sunflowers. Fall color views on the Hutch Curve are stunning, with Aspen gold’s and fire red colors dotting the gorgeous landscape below.

This property features quaking Aspen, Blue Spruce, and Douglas Fir.

Water: A deep spring fed trout lake is located on the western portion of the property.

Access: Paved highway frontage along HWY 64

Hunting/Recreation: Big game crossing the Hutch Curve from time to time consists of elk, mule deer, bear, and cougar, Merriam turkey and blue grouse. The ranch is currently enrolled in New Mexico’s E-Plus landowner elk system via the Small Contributing Ranch portion of the system.

Remarks: The name “Hutch Curve” is derived from its parent ranch that is still commonly known as the “Hutch”. Long ago, the owners surveyed their larger parcel into 4 separate tracts. This parcel makes up one of the parcels along US Highway 64 at the top of the ridge where the large teardrop curve takes place. Clearly the tract fits the name well. This parcel adjoins the larger portion of the Hutch, the High Timber Ranch, and the Hutch East tract.

We know of no other smaller parcels offered with the amenities of the Hutch Curve. Elevation lies at 10,500 feet. Again, we know of no other small parcels of real estate in New Mexico at this type of elevation where one can reach up and touch the stars at night and have the views of the lower aspen timber colors experience in the fall. Topping this off is the almost unheard of amenity of a spring fed lake where trout can live through a harsh New Mexico winter.

The Hutch Curve is a must have for an owner desiring a true mountain sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of crowded cities. Photos in this brochure do not give this ranch justice. An onsite visit to this unique property is required to fully appreciate this rare, one of a kind opportunity.

Price: This rare offering is priced to sell on today’s rising market at $4,000 per acre.

White Lake Ranch  77,111± Total Acres

Location: The White Lake Ranch is located northeast of Roswell, New Mexico.

Acres: 77,111± Total Acres (69,314± Deeded Acres)

4,477± NM State Lease Acres, 960± BLM Acres, 2,360± Uncontrolled/Free Use Acres

Terrain: The terrain is described as gently rolling hills and side slopes draining to several draws and low lying flat bottom lands. Elevations are approximately 3,900 feet in the flats, elevating to over 4,000 feet on the upland country. An elevated ridgeline, known as Railroad Mountain runs through the northern portion of the ranch in a west to east direction. This unusual geological feature has the appearance of an elevated railroad bed with substantial rock outcroppings throughout the side slopes of this elevated formation.

The White Lake Ranch supports a good mixture of native grasses, which are plentiful in the low-lying flats and more sparse throughout the elevated portions of the ranch. Low bush mesquite is common over much of the property and shin oak is found in the sandier areas of the property.

Water: Numerous large natural lakes and man-made earthen ponds are found throughout the ranch. Many of these ponds are considered generally dependable, as they receive substantial runoff from the higher elevations of the ranch. Additionally, there are several water wells developed on the property, along with pipelines and livestock drinkers. The two main water wells were recently tested for volume and both produced approximately 12-15 gallons per minute each.

Improvements: The ranch is fenced and cross fenced into approximately 10 pastures and much of the fencing is fairly new and in good overall condition. The ranch is also improved by several large sets of livestock pens, outbuildings and a small help house.

Hunting/Recreation: Under the current operation the ranch is running a cow/calf operation, but there are a lot of quail on the property, with antelope being common in the open plains country and mule deer in the sandier hilly country. Some additional supplemental income can be derived from hunting.

Remarks: No minerals are offered with the White Lake Ranch and old scattered oil production is located on portions of the property; however, this production has been phased out and there is little to no oil field activity on the property at this time. This area of New Mexico is located in a semi-arid climate with the average rainfall being approximately 12 inches. The growing season averages around 208 days.

Price: There is nothing fancy or scenic about the White Lake Ranch, but the property is extremely realistically priced at $200 per deeded acre, with the leases being assigned and transferred to the purchaser. As brokers, we are not aware of any other ranch available at this price in New Mexico. At this price, you will look long and hard to find a ranch that will compare to the White Lake Ranch.

Barrel & Indian Creek Ranch

Scenic Palo Duro Canyon Texas Panhandle Ranch For Sale Exceptional Cattle Ranching, Hunting & Recreation

Location: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is located approximately 65 linear miles southeast of Amarillo, Texas, and 8 linear miles east of Silverton, Texas. The property contains over 50 square miles and offers some of the most stunning views of the scenic Palo Duro Canyon from all parts of the property.

Acres: 32,041.57 Acres

Terrain: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is situated primarily within the Palo Duro Canyon. As the second-largest canyon system in the United States, the Palo Duro Canyon is roughly 120 miles long and has an average width of 6 miles, but reaches widths of 20 miles at places.

Due to the nature of the canyon, the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch offers an extremely diverse topography which may actually be the most rugged topography of any large ranch property in the State of Texas. Beginning on the south end of the ranch, approximately 10% of the property is described as fairly level upland plains country, which dramatically descends to steep jagged canyon walls, rolling and hilly transitional country, and finally productive creek bottom country as the ranch nears the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River along the north boundary of the property.

From the elevated uplands on the south portion of the property overwhelming panoramic views showcase the Palo Duro Canyon and the winding creek bottoms of Barrel and Indian Creeks.

Elevation change on the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is a spectacular 1,000 feet. The upper plains country has an elevation slightly above 3,200 feet. Along the canyon floor near the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, the elevation falls to approximately, 2,200 feet.

The ranch contains a good variety of native grasses along with desirable browse for wildlife. The native grass turf is in excellent condition over much of the ranch due to timely moisture this spring and a conservative stocking rate. Buffalograss and various grama grasses are found on the plains above the Caprock escarpment and on the flat, mid-level divides. The bottomland along Barrel and Indian Creeks supports tall and mid-level grasses, which include Indiangrass, Canada wild-rye, little bluestem and alkali sacaton. The canyon breaks have a scattered to sometimes dense canopy of juniper and mesquite, with wild plum thickets, cottonwood and hackberry trees being found along the bottom country.

A 4-year old, Reinke brand pivot sprinkler system is used to irrigate about 125 acres just north of the headquarters. Irrigation water to the pivot is provided by two wells with a total pumping capacity reported to be around 1,000 gallons per minute.

With over 3,000 acres of the ranch being located on the productive upland plains, additional land is suitable for cultivation and the irrigated portion of the property could be expanded to enhance the overall carrying capacity of the ranch.

The ranch has historically been utilized as a year round cow/calf operation with typical stocking rates of 500-600 cows, depending upon weather conditions and patterns. The ranch could also be utilized for seasonal grazing of yearlings.

Water: This property is considered to be very well watered. The ranch is primarily watered by several windmills and six wells equipped with electric submersible pumps. Well water cannot be located in some areas of the rugged canyon country. For this reason, an extensive waterline network with water storage reservoirs has been constructed. Some wells are located below the Caprock, but the majority of the water source comes from quality Ogallala water located on the upland plains. This quality and dependable water source supplies approximately 40 miles of buried waterlines used to transport well water to drinking troughs placed over many areas of the ranch. In addition to the water wells and waterlines, several dirt tanks have been constructed in places and several natural playa lake areas are found on the upland plains country.

Barrel and Indian Creeks meander in a north, north easterly direction through the ranch, eventually draining into the Praire Dog Town Fork of the Red River. Live water and/or water holes are common throughout the creeks. Several other seasonal creeks and springs are scattered around the ranch. Overall, the property is considered to be well watered.

Improvements: The ranch is improved by a nice headquarters located on the upland plains near the southern-most boundary. The headquarters house is a comfortable completely remodeled three bedroom, two bathroom home with attached garage. Other headquarter improvements include two large metal shops/barns and the main shipping pens, which are of pipe and sucker rod construction with a covered hydraulic squeeze chute and livestock scales. A 180′ x 400′ roping arena is located just off the main shipping pens. Several other good sets of working pens are located throughout the ranch.

Two additional houses are located near the rim, overlooking some of the most scenic portions of the Palo Duro Canyon. An older, completely remodeled three bedroom, two bath home and a nearly new two bedroom, two bath owner’s residence/lodge with a porch and attached two car garage offer comfortable housing for 10-12 people, if needed.

The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is fenced and cross fenced into approximately 14 pastures and traps. Overall, the fences are in fair to good condition. In some places, due to the rugged topography, canyon walls and rim rocks serve as natural boundaries and pasture divisions of the ranch.

The ranch has an extensive and well maintained network of ranch roads that transverse most all portions of the property. The current owner has taken great care to keep all roads in good operating condition in order to provide access to different parts of the ranch for both humans and livestock. The ranch also has a large on-site caliche pit that furnishes quality road material for major ranch roads throughout the property.

Access: Access to the property is provided by State Highway 256, which runs along the ranch’s southern boundary.

Hunting/Recreation: The wildlife features on the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch are excellent and hunting in the area is known to be outstanding. Both mule deer and whitetail deer thrive in this area, as do aoudad sheep. Quail, turkey and bobcat are also very common. The ranch is enrolled in the MLDP (Managed Lands Deer Program) through the Texas Parks and Wildlife. Through this program, the ranch is able to hunt deer earlier and later than the general season, extending through the rut.

While demand for commercial hunting is substantial, during the current 40 year ownership no commercial hunting has been allowed. The only hunting on the ranch has been the owner’s family and close friends.

Remarks: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch represents one of the most scenic properties in the Texas Panhandle. The famous Palo Duro Canyon State Park is located up the canyon, northwest of the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch. In our opinion, the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is actually more diverse and more scenic than the state park.

The existing road network and waterline network are a major plus for the property, and everything appears to be in good operable condition. This ranch has been well maintained and ready for the new owner to enjoy and operate.
