Property Description

The Border Ranch is located west of El Paso and just east of Columbus, NM. The International Border of the United States and Mexico makes up the southern portion of the ranch.

1,359 +/- deeded acres
18,080 +/- acres of New Mexico State Lease
127,400 +/- BLM acres
146,839 +/- total acres

BLM Rated 1,103 CYL

The ranch has historically been utilized as a cow/calf operation focusing on low overhead and cheap labor. This is a working cattle ranch priced to fit the rancher's pocketbook. The ranch is rated for 1,103 AU/YR.

The Border Ranch is a desert grass grazing unit. Terrain on Border Ranch varies from rolling to steep range sites on the east Mt. Reilly area to medium rolling on the west area toward Columbus, NM. Elevations on the ranch are generally 4,600 to 4,900ft. +/-.

The primary water sources on Border Ranch consist of two electric submersible pump wells at the headquarters, one pumping 40 gpm and the other 20 gpm. Also, a new well in the southeast area of the ranch provides up to 20 gpm. In addition there are five windmills and two solar powered wells located around the ranch. These wells provide water to 13 pasture drinkers via 35 +/- miles of underground pipeline. Secondary to the permanent water sources are 9 seasonal earth stock tanks serving both livestock and wildlife. The water system on this ranch is functional and allows the cattle to graze over a
wide area.

Access to the ranch is provided by paved highway frontage.

The Border Ranch is improved with an easily accessed headquarters area just off NM State Road #9 consisting of an older home, an open pole shed/shop area with concrete floor and tack room, and an enclosed feed/tack storage area. There is also a large liquid food storage tank and feed dispenser trailer and three gasoline and diesel storage tanks.

Working pens at the headquarters are constructed of a combination of commercial grade pipe, guard rail and cross ties. The pens include a squeeze chute, loading chute, and scales. The pens will handle up to 8,000 head for pre-conditioning or shipment, either domestically or from Mexico. These pens are in excellent condition and provide an efficient system for cattle management.

This is an opportunity to purchase a large, low overhead permit ranch in an area providing cheap labor. Security is not a problem because the Santa Teresa Regional Border Patrol headquarters is just a few minutes east of the ranch. The patrol's presence is very strong in the immediate area and the ranch manager has never had any issue in his 25 year history working on the ranch. This leasehold ranch is very easy to manage and offers the savvy operator an affordable and economical livestock grazing unit from which to profit.

Price: $2,000/Animal Unit or $2,200,000
