Incredible opportunity to step into an incredible working cattle and hay ranch; a turnkey operation that started in the family over 80 years ago and is now available to change hands for the first time! 5J Farms has been a well-known local operation with ample infrastructure, water shares, improvements, and more.
Over 1,000 acres of fully-fenced pastures spread out across the ranch offer great rotational grazing options with multiple water tanks, sections of irrigated grass, Bob Creek, and more. Corrals at 4 separate locations allow easy rotation and transport, with full working facilities at the main livestock headquarters. Included at this location is a fantastic insulated calving barn with multiple stalls and runs, storage, and office area. Adjacent to the calving barn is the main working area including large pipe and guardrail corrals with concrete feed bunks and automatic freeze-proof waterers. Squeeze chute with scales, adjustable S alley, sweep tub, and sorting areas with easy highway access and staging/storage area for semis, equipment, etc.
Just down the road, 5J Farms features another incredible facility with multiple attractive improvements including a 40’ x 75’ insulated show barn offering ample room for any type of livestock use. This facility includes a large enclosed feed room, prep area, eight 12’x 12’ interior stalls, eight exterior 12’ x 90’ pens with freeze-proof waterers, and ample corrals and sorting area, all utilizing heavy-duty continuous pipe fencing leading out to pasture.
Next to the show barn, you’ll find a large cinderblock-built building including a spacious livestock wash rack, 2 storage rooms, ½ bath, natural gas heater and an on-demand water heater. This is a fantastic storage, break, and prep area for show cattle and/or other livestock that is already set up and ready to go. Portable truck scales just outside as a bonus!
Other locations feature guardrail panel corrals, improved fencing, gates, and more.
Currently in production at 5J Farms are just over 400 acres of established alfalfa and grass, producing additional feed for the livestock on the ranch. For irrigation, the ranch includes 402 paired shares of the Colorado Canal/Lake Meredith water, with 57 additional shares available for purchase. Some of these shares are enrolled in conservation easements, ensuring that the water will stay with the land for perpetuity to negate dry-up. Multiple equipment and hay storage facilities are located on the ranch, including a large 50 x 100 metal machine shed.
Living and other Improvements:
The ranch headquarters features a 3 bed/2 bath manufactured home with a spacious screened-in porch with distant mountain views. A 60x80 metal building with large overhead doors houses a large shop area, 150-ton Cincinnati press-break, 3-phase power, large compressor, kitchen area, 1 ½ baths, storage areas and more. This could easily be turned into an additional apartment area for ranch hands, or utilized as a large welding facility as it has been in the past.
A 1 bed/1-1/2 bath ranch house with an attached garage and shop is located towards the northern portion of the ranch, along with a historic homesite just down the road. With power and an existing unregistered well, this would be a terrific site for a new home, additional storage facilities, etc.
All of this just scratches the surface of what 5J Farms has to offer. For questions or to request an information packet, please contact local Land Specialist Jerrod Meyer!
