The Ranch

W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch

General photos of the W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch taken in 2014. The ranch has a very diverse terrain and it may be hard to truly comprehend the sheer vastness of the property. In total, the ranch spans nearly 800 square miles, which is approximately 3/4ths the size of Rhode Island. As the old saying goes, “Everything is Bigger in Texas,” and the Waggoner Ranch definitely exemplifies that statement.

The Farmland

W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch: Farmland

The W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch contains approximately 30,000 acres of productive farmland. Some of the cultivation is irrigated and portions have been seeded to Coastal Bermuda. There is a story of a mechanic working on a tractor that told the operator he wanted to take a ride with him to make sure the machine was operating properly. When the operator asked the mechanic what he brought for lunch the mechanic said he had not intended to be out past lunch. The operator told the mechanic “It’ll take all day to make one lap around this wheat field. If you are coming with me, you’d better pack a lunch.” Whether or not that story is true or not we’ll never know, but this is an expansive block of farmland.

The Minerals

W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch: Minerals

According to an article in Western Horseman Magazine, while drilling for water on the ranch, W.T. Waggoner instead hit oil. Disgusted, he continued to drill for water. By the 1920’s, with the advent of the automobile, W.T.’s attitude changed. The Waggoner Ranch got into oil in a big way, and today oil wells still methodically pump as cattle graze around them. There is a story that humorist Will Rogers was on the ranch with his friend W.T. in the 1930’s and said “I see there’s an oil well for each cow.”

More information please. Thank you.

there are Just to many thing in common with me. like the year it was started. last number are my birth year.53. that I’d want it all. And keep it in the family..Guess this sounds crazy, but I have a feeling about this and I’m never wrong. Also that I’m native.. I don’t if any of this makes since. But hope some see’s what I do when I look at that ranch..it needs me.

Also that’s my name.. DDD. now that’s just to much..

Our news last night had an article on the Waggoner ranch sale, mostly because an Australian is said to be selling it.
Anyway, I grew up in the US Prairie, so was interested enough to look it up. I wanted to download the PDF brochure, but it is a dead link.
I did find a PDF brochure elsewhere, but you might like to fix the link.
It’d also be neat to have it in a high resolution form for download. I say that because I see so many documents that purport to be low res, but are actually illegible.

David, thank you for taking the time to write to us. You are correct that there is an Australian, Bernard Uechtritz of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International, working on the sale along with Sam Middleton. We did see the video interview and posted a link to our facebook page.

I checked the brochure and it appears to be working. This is a lower resolution version than the print copy, but I believe you’ll find it shows well.
