The Riddel Ranch is in Stonewall County, TX and is comprised of approximately 10,295 acres. The ranch is located near Aspermont and has several miles of highway frontage, as well as access by several county roads. The ranch is an excellent combination of native pasture and cultivated fields, with live water in two creeks and numerous large ponds and dirt tanks. The ranch is considered to have excellent cover for wildlife. The southern portion of the property is generally level and slightly sloping with a moderate to dense canopy of mesquite. As you transition north, cedar becomes more prevalent and the terrain becomes more broken. Rock Creek heads on the ranch and flows in a northeasterly direction through approximately two miles of the ranch. Another live creek flows through the northern portion of the property for approximately two miles.

The ranch is in fantastic condition with a tremendous grass turf. Many of the large earthen tanks have been cleaned out in recent years and hold water well.

The Riddel Ranch is a fantastic offering and would be very suitable for subdivision. The highway frontage and county road access makes for a very desirable property for an investor.

Priced at $825/acre we feel this is an exceptional ranch for the money.

Riddel Ranch Topo Map

The Sutter Ranch is The ranch is located in the northwestern portion of the state between Shattuck and Woodward, Oklahoma in Ellis County. The ranch features exceptional live water features, a good grass turf for grazing of livestock and cattle, irrigated and dryland farmland and very good recreation features. The Woodward Airport is approximately 15 minutes from the property.

The Sutter Ranch was assembled in multiple adjoining tracts during the 1920’s and has been owned by heirs of the Sutter Family for nearly 100 years and this is the first time the ranch has been offered for sale. The centerpiece of the property is the scenic and very productive Wolf Creek bottom area, which meanders through the southern portion of the ranch for a distance of approximately 7 miles. Wolf Creek provides year round crystal clear live water, with tree covered surroundings creating a “park like” setting throughout the 7 plus miles of the creek bottom. Immediately north of the tree covered creek bottom area, the terrain gently elevates and is fairly level to gently sloping and sometimes undulating. Throughout this area, the ranch has a fairly open appearance with a turf of mixed native grasses, along with substantial plum thickets, sumac and scattered sage.

Three pivot sprinkler systems are located on the ranch, with a total of approximately 460 wet acres of irrigated ground. Typically, these irrigated circles are farmed in wheat or hybrid sudan for seasonal grazing or for hay production. To the east of these pivots is a large sub-irrigated native hay meadow, which generally produces several hundred large round bales of native grass hay. The native hay is a combination of Eastern Gama, Switch, several varieties of Bluestem and mixed meadow grasses. To the south of Wolf Creek are several dryland fields containing a total of about 50 acres.

As the country continues to transition north, the terrain becomes more sloping, hilly and broken with several major drainages, all descending to Wolf Creek. Grass vegetation includes side oats, gramma, brome and several varieties of bluestem.

The property is considered to be extremely well watered with live water in Wolf Creek and Twenty Five Mile Creek, windmills, electric submersible wells, one solar well and a small amount of pipeline watering. The water quality is generally excellent, being in the Ogallala Aquifer. The irrigation wells reportedly have capacities of around 800 – 900 gallons per minute each.

Recreation, hunting and fishing are major components of the Sutter Ranch. Whitetail Deer and Turkey literally flourish in the wooded creek bottom areas. Quail and dove are in abundance throughout the property, as well as pheasant. Mule Deer are occasionally viewed in the more open hilly and broken areas found on the north side of the ranch. Fishing is generally good in
Wolf Creek. The irrigated cultivated land is adjacent to the wooded creek bottom country. When this land is planted to wheat and/or hybrid sudan, it becomes a magnet for the huge deer population found throughout the protected creek bottom, and it is not uncommon to view hundreds of deer in the early morning or late evening grazing this lush forage. The State of Oklahoma is on every serious whitetail hunters watchlist every year for trophy deer, and the genetics found on the Sutter Ranch should satisfy even the most seasoned whitetail hunter. Game management has been a tradition on this ranch and it shows in the quality deer that flourish on the property.

The property is located in a desirable ranching area, receiving annual precipitation in the range of 23–24 inches per year.

The Sutter Ranch is listed at $16,375,000, or approximately $1,295 per acre. The Sutter Ranch is very representative of one of the finest ranches in this area of Oklahoma. This is the first time this
long term ownership ranch has ever been offered for sale. The ranch is very well kept and is ready to operate and enjoy.

Waggoner Estate Ranch 175 miles (280 kilometers) northwest of Dallas. Squinting into the sun, Uechtritz gestures to the sky on his right. “Everything you can see, as far as the eye can see, is the ranch,” he says.

Iconic Chunk of Texas for Sale for $725 Million
Published on Jul 21, 2015
The Waggoner Ranch in north Texas is slightly smaller than Rhode Island and is the largest ranch in the U.S. within a single fence. Everything about it is Texas-scale: the colorful history, the sprawl, the oil that lies beneath it, and the feud among the heirs that is forcing a court-ordered sale. This old-fashioned working ranch comes with 6,800 cattle, 500 quarter horses, more than 1,000 producing oil wells, nearly 30,000 acres of farmland and more than 150 years of history. The price tag: $725 Million.

Agricultural advancement happened pretty quickly in the Great Plains beginning in the late 19th Century. Innovation in irrigation technology made it possible for subsistence farming to occur with lots of shovel work and a nearby stream to divert water. Then the Reclamation Act made surface water sources accessible to more people, giving way to a farming industry. Next, engine technology made it possible to harvest groundwater in ways that had never before been seen. While windmills made it possible for early settlers to farm and live, they couldn’t draw enough water to sustain an industry.

This is what those early years of irrigation technology looked like when groundwater was drawn and dispersed with an engine. Credit to STEWARDING OUR AQUIFER

It’s been said that war is the mother of invention, and in the case of irrigation technology that’s true. While diesel technology was being implemented and used for farming, it wasn’t viable for the masses yet. It was too expensive, too heavy, too large, and too difficult to implement. By the end of WWII, technological innovations were more readily available to the common man and revolutionized the agricultural industry.
