Kenedy County South TX Ranch For SaleTullidos Pasture Armstrong Ranch

5,500 ± Acres Kenedy County South TX Ranch For Sale

We are proud and honored to have obtained an exclusive listing on a portion of one of the state’s most legendary ranches, the Armstrong Ranch. The Tullidos Pasture of the Armstrong Ranch is located in the heart of the South Texas “Big Ranch Country”, adjoining both the remainder of the Armstrong Ranch and the Norias Division of the King Ranch.

The property is located approximately 45 minutes from Valley International Airport in Harlingen. The nearest public airport, capable of handling larger private aircraft, is Kleberg County Airport (KIKG) at Kingsville, approximately 45 miles north of the ranch. This all-weather, instrument certified, airport has a 6,001-foot x 75-foot asphalt runway capable of handling large business jets. Access to the ranch is provided by paved frontage on the west side of U.S. Highway 77.

The entire west and north boundaries of the ranch adjoin the remaining 45,000 acre Armstrong Ranch. The south boundary adjoins the Norias Division of the 825,000 acre King Ranch. Other large ranching operations in the area include the Santa Fe, Yturria, Kenedy, Jones, and Bass Ranches. Most of these large area ranches have been owned and controlled by the same families for over 100 years. Given the size of the two large adjoining ranches and the other large nearby holdings, ranches in this area very rarely become available for purchase. To give some perspective regarding the size of ranch holdings in Kenedy County, this county is the third least populous county in Texas and the fourth least populous county in the United States.

The ranch has been under the ownership of the Armstrong Family since 1852. Initially, James H. Durst purchased the property after he and friend Richard King became enamored with this region. Wild horses and even wilder cattle ran free throughout the Wild Horse Desert at that time, and the pair knew if they could find reliable water and overcome the lawlessness of the region that this would be exceptional ranchland for cattle grazing, and in the early days his focus was almost entirely on grazing red Santa Gertrudis cattle.

Durst’s life was filled with accomplishment and adventures, but unfortunately, his life was not a long one. Fast forward to approximately 1872, when Durst’s daughter married John B. Armstrong, a native of Tennessee and a member of the Travis Rifles, an elite guard and Texas Rangers. Armstrong was known as the man who arrested John Wesley Hardin, likely one of the deadliest outlaws in his day. The arrest of Hardin garnished Armstrong with $4,000 in reward money. This windfall gave he and his wife Mollie the financial capability to buy some livestock and settle in ranching on what has come to be known as the Armstrong Ranch.

The topography of the Tullidos Pasture is characterized as coastal plains country with scattered natural lake depressions. The ranch is situated approximately 25 miles west of Laguna Madre and the north end of Padre Island. Elevations are in the range of 20 to 30 feet MSL. The soils are a mixture of fine sand, loamy fine sand and fine sandy loam. The ranch has a desirable mix of open prairie and large scattered motts of mesquite, live oak and huisache. Typical grasses include bluestem, Bermuda grass, coastal sacahuista, switchgrass, Indiangrass, hooded windmill grass, bahiagrass, etc. Forbs include western indigo, dotted gayfeather, croton (desirable quail feed), lantana, camphor daisy, etc. The sacahuista has been controlled through periodic prescribed burns. The natural scattered tree canopy forms an almost perfect blend of open and wooded country, offering great protection and viewing opportunities for wildlife. The natural mix of scattered wooded motts and open prairies give the ranch a pristine sculptured appearance.

The ranch is fenced into one pasture. The fences are of typical barbed wire construction and are in good condition.

..

..

The Tullidos Pasture is considered to be well watered. Water features include a solar well located on the north-central portion of the property that supplies a water trough and feeds a waterline to another trough located near the center of the ranch. Additionally, a windmill feeds a trough near the southwest corner of the property, near where the Tullidos Pasture joins the King Ranch and the remaining portion of the Armstrong holdings.

A waterline supplies water to the lodge and another water trough that is located near the southeastern corner of the property.

Several natural depressions are scattered throughout the Tullidos Pasture.

..

..

The Tullidos Pasture is improved with a rustic lodge attractively located in a large mott of giant live oaks. The lodge includes a large bedroom and bathroom with a separated kitchen/living area. A breezeway divides the lodge, and the front of the structure has a covered porch, perfect for evening entertainment.

This outstanding ranch is a sportsman’s paradise. It is located in an area of South Texas widely regarded as the best quail country in the United States. The ranch has been well managed over the years to maximize habitat and numbers.

Other game species include trophy quality whitetail deer and nilgai, as well as an abundance of dove and turkey. The many natural lake depressions provide exceptional habitat for waterfowl.

..

..

Without question, the Tullidos Pasture of the Armstrong Ranch represents one of the finest recreational ranches to be offered for sale in an area where there are limited opportunities to purchase ranch properties.

This outstanding and historic property is realistically offered for sale at $3,500 per acre.

The mineral estate was reserved many years ago, however, there is very little oil and gas production on the ranch.

The ranch is located in an area with a generally desirable climate and annual precipitation is in the range of 27-28”.

Everything is in place and ready to go on this ranch. If you are in the market for a premier hunting ranch, adjoining or in close proximity to some of the largest and most famous ranches in South Texas, this offering deserves your immediate attention. Opportunities to purchase a ranch of this quality and desirable location are few and far between.

IMG_0106Reding Ranch For Sale 623.21 Acres : Denton County Land For Sale

Located in the northern outskirts of Denton approximately 50 miles north of the Dallas Central Business District

Location: The Reding Ranch is located in the northern outskirts of the City of Denton, in northern Denton County approximately 50 miles north of the Dallas Central Business District. The ranch is also centrally located to Hwy. 380 (7 miles), Dallas North Tollway (20 miles) and Interstate 35 (3.5 miles).

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.

Access: Access is available via a paved two lane highway, FM 2164, with considerable frontage on the west side of the ranch. The property has approximately 5,000 linear feet of frontage on FM 2164. The ranch is located four miles north of Loop 288 and two miles south of FM 455.

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.

The historic Butterfield Trail bisects the lower pastures of the ranch just north of the headquarters adding to the history of this beautiful southwestern New Mexico ranch property.

Price: $3,650,000 or $470/deeded acre (BLM and NM State lands included)

XJ3B1725What’s the difference in grazing New Mexico State Trust (State Lease) Lands vs. grazing BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Lands?

New Mexico State Land Office

The State Land Office is responsible for administering 9 million acres of surface and 13 million acres of subsurface estate for the beneficiaries of the state land trust, which includes schools, universities, hospitals and other important public institutions.

The Land Office seeks to optimize revenues while protecting the health of the land for future generations.  By leasing state trust land for a wide array of uses, the Land Office generates hundreds of millions of dollars each year to support these beneficiaries while saving the average household about $800 in taxes.

State trust land is located in 32 of New Mexico’s 33 counties, with each acre of land designated to a specific beneficiary. Trust lands were granted to New Mexico by Congress under the Ferguson Act of 1898 and the Enabling Act of 1910. The latter act allowed New Mexico’s admission to the United States upon voter approval of the state constitution.

In general terms, the state was granted four square miles – Sections 2, 16, 32, and 36 – in each 36-section township. Where those sections had previously been sold or allocated to Indian pueblos, tribal reservations or pre-existing land grants, the state was allowed to pick lands elsewhere in lieu of the four designated sections. The state also received “quantity grants” from the federal government, in specific amounts to benefit specified universities, special schools, institutions, and other purposes. Those land grants totaled about 5 million acres.

Revenue generated from the extraction of oil and gas, from mining, the sale of land, and any other activity that depletes the resource is placed in the Land Grant Permanent Fund, which is invested for the beneficiaries. Revenues from activities like grazing, rights of way, and commercial activities that do not permanently deplete the resource are distributed through the Land Maintenance Fund to the designated beneficiaries after the Land Office covers its own expenses – an amount which typically is equal to about 2.5 percent of the revenue generated.

More Info: nmstatelands.org

Bureau of Land Management (BLM)

The Bureau of Land Management, which administers about 245 million acres of public lands, manages livestock grazing on 155 million acres of those lands, as guided by Federal law. The terms and conditions for grazing on BLM-managed lands (such as stipulations on forage use and season of use) are set forth in the permits and leases issued by the Bureau to public land ranchers.

The BLM administers nearly 18,000 permits and leases held by ranchers who graze their livestock, mostly cattle and sheep, at least part of the year on more than 21,000 allotments under BLM management. Permits and leases generally cover a 10-year period and are renewable if the BLM determines that the terms and conditions of the expiring permit or lease are being met. The amount of grazing that takes place each year on BLM-managed lands can be affected by such factors as drought, wildfire, and market conditions.

In managing livestock grazing on public rangelands, the BLM’s overall objective is to ensure the long-term health and productivity of these lands and to create multiple environmental benefits that result from healthy watersheds. The Bureau administers public lands ranching in accordance with the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 and more recent laws, and in so doing provides livestock-based economic opportunities in rural communities while contributing to the West’s, and America’s, social fabric and identity. Together, public lands and the adjacent private ranches maintain open spaces in the fast-growing West, provide habitat for wildlife, offer a myriad of recreational opportunities for public land users, and help preserve the character of the rural West.

New Mexico State Trust Lands and BLM

XJ3B1726

Below is a quick sampling of differences/similarities. CLICK HERE to see a comparison between agricultural leasing on State Trust Lands and Bureau of Land Management.

New Mexico State Land Office

Grazing Lease or Permit: Authorizes, through an agricultural lease, the right to state land for the production of crops and other soil products, raising animals, or other related uses.
It may be subject to such other rights and uses as the
Commissioner may authorize.

Base Property: Does not have a base property requirement.

Collateral: Allows a rancher to use the lease or permit as collateral with a lending institution. Collateral assignment shall have prior written consent of the Commissioner and payment of a collateral assignment filing fee.

Grazing Capacity Livestock Stocking Levels: The NMSLO has a grazing capacity established for the lease. It uses grazing capacity as part of a formula to determine the annual rental bill for the lease. According to 19.2.8.11 N.M.A.C., the annual rental for grazing land is determined by this formula: $0.0474 (Base Value) x Carrying Capacity (CC) x Acreage x Economic Variable Index (EVI)

Fees Due For The Lease or Permit: Fees are set annually by formula based on an animal unit month similar to ELM, which is based on the Public Rangeland Improvement Act of 1978. The NMSLO current fee is $3.21 per AUM or $.60/acre

Subleases: May be made only with the prior written consent of the Commissioner. An agricultural sublease as a transaction or arrangement whereby a lessee grants to another rights or interests conveyed to the lessee by an agricultural lease.

A sublease is created when the lessee transfers to another either the possession of the leased premises, or a portion of it, or the management and control of crops and other products located on the leased premises.

A sublease is not created when the lessee retains possession or management of animals or products located on the leased premises but not owned by the lessee.

The surcharge for a sublease is the current annual rental fee plus an amount equal to 20 percent of the current annual lease rental.

Kind and Class of Livestock: May lease state trust land for kind and class of livestock which is determined to be in the best interest of the trust.

No approval is needed to switch class or kind of livestock, and no terms and conditions are set governing kind and class of livestock allowed on state trust land.

Rancher Access: Does not place specific access restrictions on lessee mode of travel, or limitations on off road travel.

Bureau of Land Management

Grazing Lease or Permit: Authorizes grazing by permit or lease for grazing outside of grazing districts and within grazing district boundaries.

There are important differences in base property requirements between a BLM grazing lease and permit. You can find out the boundaries of the grazing districts at the local BLM offices.

Base Property: Has a base property requirement for grazing permittees and lessees. A grazing preference has priority for receiving a grazing permit or lease. This priority is attached to base property owned or controlled by the permittee or lessee rather than the individual.

Collateral: Allows a rancher to use the lease or permit as collateral with a lending institution.

Grazing Capacity Livestock Stocking Levels: The BLM has a grazing capacity for the permit or lease. Each permit or lease will provide for a certain number of livestock and time they can use the lands.
When the BLM lands compose only a minor part of the allotment or use area, the BLM may not determine the annual stocking levels. However, where BLM has the majority of the land, it will determine the acceptable stocking levels in the permit or lease.

Fees Due For The Lease or Permit: The ELM fees are set annually by formula based on an animal unit month. An animal unit month is the amount of forage necessary for one cow or its equivalent for a period of one month. Currently, the fee is $1.35 per animal unit month (AUM).

Subleases: Requires the permittee or lessee to own or control the livestock. Where the livestock are not owned by the permittee, lessee or their chldren, thymust notify ELM and pay an additional sublease surcharge. The surcharge for ELM – NM currently is $4.08 per animal unit month.

Kind and Class of Livestock: Establishes the permit or lease with an acceptable kind or type of livestock. The rancher must get ELM’s approval to switch.

If the rancher wants to run a specific class of livestock such as yearlings and run additional livestock as a result of the smaller animal, they must have ELM’s approval first.

Rancher Access:  All ELM lands are normally available for rancher access via foot or horseback or existing roads. However, there may be restrictions on off road travel that would apply to ranchers as well as others. Information is available at the local ELM office on access restrictions.

IMG_1799New Mexico State Lease Agricultural Leasing Rental Fee
How Does the Rental Fee Formula Work for Agricultural Leasing on State Trust Lands?

 

The current fee calculation for agricultural leases was implemented in 1988. The fee formula takes into account a wide variety of factors which include the previous year’s rates by western livestock ranchers, beef cattle prices, and the cost of livestock production.

When cattle prices decline and the cost associated with livestock production increases, the grazing fee will decrease in response to these market conditions. Also, when forage is in demand by ranchers, it will tend to increase the grazing fee index and result in a higher grazing fee. These price rates are used to determine the fee formula.

Adjustment factors adjust state trust land grazing fees up or down depending on value of forage and economic conditions in the western livestock industry. The adjustment factor adjusts fees relative to a 1978-1987 base period, and there is a one-year lag between when the data are collected by USDA and when they are reported. Indices used are for 11 western states.

According to 19.2.8.11 NMAC, the annual rental for grazing land is determined by this formula:

$0.0474 (Base Value)  x  Carrying Capacity (CC)  x  Acreage  x  Economic Variable Index (EVI)

The EVI is the ratio of the value of the State Land Office Adjustment Factor (SLOAF) for the current year to the SLOAF for the base year 1987, or 135 (i.e.; SLOAF ÷ 135)

The SLOAF is determined based on the following three indices described in the Public Rangelands Improvement Act (PRIA), and published annually by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Forage Value Index (FVI)[1]:  A derived index of the relative change in the previous year’s average monthly rate per head for pasturing cattle on privately owned land in the West.

Beef Cattle Price Index (BCPI)[2]:  An index of the weighted average annual price for beef cattle, excluding calves, for a given western state area as compared with a specific base period equal to 100.

Prices Paid Index (PPI):  An index that measures changes in the prices paid for goods and services used in crop and livestock production and family living.

Since the formula was implemented in 1988, it has seen many increases and decreases depending on livestock prices, costs and private lease rates.

Stuart Ranch 1Exceptional ranch offering live water and diverse topography. Located less than four miles off Interstate 20 between Fort Worth and Abilene. Under the same family ownership since the 1870’s!

<<>>

Location:
The Stuart Ranch is well located in western Palo Pinto County, with a small portion of the ranch extending into eastern Stephens County.

Acres:
11,657 Acres

History:
The Stuart Ranch was purchased by James Nesbit Stuart in the mid 1870’s. The property has never, until now, been offered for sale. Mr. Stuart was an old-time cattleman, merchant, capitalist and early day settler. He and his young bride moved from Tennessee to Palo Pinto County in 1859. He started purchasing land and, over time became one of the largest landowners in the area. Besides being in the cattle business, he was actively involved in a lumber business, mercantile store, drug store, lumber yard, grocery store, and later, a hardware and feed trade business.

Terrain:
The topography of the Stuart Ranch is extremely diverse. The upland mesas have elevations ranging from 1,400 feet to 1,475 feet. These fairly level mesas have limestone rock side slopes descending to level and gently rolling live oak prairies. This productive prairie land then descends to scenic creek bottom areas with elevations ranging from 1,100 feet to 1,300 feet. Most of the side slopes and ridges throughout the Stuart Ranch have large fractured limestone boulder facings along the edges of the escarpments.

The main body of the ranch, which is located north of the highway, contains approximately 9,373 acres. The smaller portion of the ranch, to the south of the highway, contains approximately 2,285 acres.

Water:
Several major drainages run through the ranch. Bill’s Creek and South Bill’s Creek drain the southern one-third (1/3) of the property. The centerpiece of the Stuart Ranch is Ioni Creek. This very scenic creek and its numerous tributaries flows through the northern one-third (1/3) of the ranch for a distance of approximately 6 miles. With normal rainfall, these major drainages will have crystal clear flowing water for much of the year, especially during the cooler months. During the summer water flow decreases substantially, and during the hottest portion of the year these creeks may cease to flow but will still have large intermittent holes of water throughout.

A remote, but very picturesque area of the Stuart Ranch should be viewed by any serious prospect. This “must see” unique setting is only accessible by foot, but well worth the walk. Cool crystal clear spring water surfaces from a large fractured rock crevice in the limestone side slopes above Ioni Creek. As this flowing spring water exits the crevice, it immediately spreads throughout the tree covered rocky side slopes, creating numerous small water falls which ultimately splash into the creek. At times, it is estimated these springs run a couple of thousand gallons per minute, but decrease substantially during the hot summer. The water from these springs is cool and refreshing and nearby holes of water along Ioni Creek are typically 6-8 feet deep, offering a great place for summertime swimming. It was reported to the broker that these springs continued to flow throughout the recent 100 year drought of 2011-2014. Other smaller springs are scattered throughout the ranch. It is very common to view bass, perch, catfish and baitfish in the deeper, clear water holes along Ioni Creek and various tributaries.

The abundance of clear flowing water, rugged limestone rock outcrops and diverse topography give major portions of this ranch a scenic “Hill Country” appearance. When compared to the typical ranch in this area of Texas, the Stuart Ranch is considered somewhat unique, considerably more scenic and diverse. Besides the excellent live water features found on the property, other water sources include electric submersible water wells, waterlines with drinking troughs and a number of good dependable earthen ponds.

Access:
Access is provided by paved highway frontage.

Improvements:
The Stuart Ranch is modestly improved. Improvements include an older frame headquarters house which contains three-bedrooms and two-baths, a metal shop/barn, overhead supplement feed bin, pipe shipping pens with scales near the headquarters, and another large set of pipe pens located on the extreme south end of the ranch, south of the highway.

Hunting/Recreation:
The ranch has historically been operated as a cow/calf ranching unit and the hunting rights are currently leased for the season. Historic stocking rates are in the neighborhood of 600 animal units. The ranch offers excellent hunting in the form of whitetail deer, turkey, quail and dove. Feral hogs also roam this area.

Remarks:
This long term ownership ranch is now on the market for the first time ever. The property is located in a desirable area and the topography, live water features and scenic views make the Stuart Ranch a property that anyone would be proud to own, operate and enjoy.

Price:
$1,500 per acre

Ewell Mimbres River Ranch 1Elk Deer and Wildlife Photos on the Ewell Mimbres River Ranch near Gila Wilderness

..

The Ewell Mimbres River Ranch is located in Grant County, New Mexico near the community of Mimbres. This all deeded ranch contains 9,628 acres and is being offered for sale at $750 per acre. The ranch has been under the same family ownership for over 40 years, and until now, has never been offered for sale. The ranch has historically been operated as a cow/calf ranching operation with outstanding hunting and recreation.

Terrain varies from lower river bottom country to fairly flat elevated mesa tops with strong grazing production and moderately steep mountain side slopes covered with side oats grama and excellent browse for wildlife and livestock. There are small breaks and depressions on many portions of the ranch. The ranch borders the Gila National Forest for miles along it’s eastern and northern boundaries. These particular Gila Forest areas are remote and there is very little, if any, vehicular access. Elevations on this spectacular ranch vary from 5,900′ to 7,000′.

The centerpiece of the Ewell Ranch is the extremely scenic Mimbres River frontage. The Mimbres flows through the ranch for approximately 1.5 miles and the property has valuable 1893 priority water rights on 74 acres of fertile bottomland. New Mexico is not known for its abundance of water. Ranch property with desirable live water river frontage in New Mexico is extremely rare and highly sought after. Having year round flowage across the ranch enhances the life blood for the entire ecosystem in this immediate area.

In addition to the Mimbres and several seasonal creeks traversing the ranch, other water sources consist of windmills, solar wells, and earth stock tanks. Seasonal live water is found in Sheppard and Stitzel Canyons. There are several storage tanks located in pastures to assure year round water for both livestock and wildlife. A minor amount of pipeline assists in water distribution on the ranch’s northern pastures. Clearly a water system consisting of live water with ample back up via wells and stock tanks provides an owner minimal concern and cost in water system maintenance.

The property is located in Game Management Unit 24. The ranch is enrolled in the E-Plus Landowner System and receives elk authorizations for bull and cow elk hunting. The gene pool for bull elk in this area is very good and they are truly “Gila Bulls”. Mule Deer and Coues Whitetail Deer call the Ewell Ranch home as well. Black bear, Lion, Merriams Turkey and other species roam within the boundaries. The river bottom and irrigated areas add to the already strong habitat for wildlife. Just off the northwest boundary of the Ewell is a very good size trout fishery called Bear Canyon Lake. Traveling another few miles north of the Ewell Boundaries lies Game Management Unit 16B which includes the famous Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness Areas. With proper management and development, a recreational hunting operation is a viable supplemental income generation source on this ranch.
