Productive Southwind Ranch Grazing Lands On The Market

Description

Southwind Ranch sits majestically on the sparsely-populated rolling plains of Southeastern Colorado with front-row views of Greenhorn Mountain, Pikes Peak, and the Spanish Peaks. Located just east of Colorado City, this amazing grassland opportunity with direct road access is just minutes from I-25 and Pueblo. Dozens of incredible building sites with huge mountain views to the west creates a perfect building opportunity with income potential. Imagine watching the deer, antelope, and other local wildlife from your front porch while watching the sun set over Greenhorn Mountain!

 

Beautiful rolling hills along Wolfenberger Road transform into wooded draws, canyons, and ridges as you move towards the back 320. Gates on most all corners allow easy transfer of livestock from pasture to pasture, allowing excellent grass rotation throughout the year.

 

 

With five pastures set up for rotated year-round or seasonal grazing, the ranch has continually produced fantastic livestock growth for decades. With a live seasonal spring, 2 stock tanks, and additional water options, the historic ranch would be a great addition to your current operation, or an optimal chance to start a sizeable ranch of your own! Long-time current rancher has grazed up to 100 pair on the ranch year-round (with periodic supplemental winter feed), producing up to 2.2 lbs/day on steers.

 

Nunn clay and Manvel silt loam soils produce a variety of nutritional grasses including multiple grama grasses, fescues, and others. These soils can support intense grazing and limited cropland, and a large portion of the ranch is eligible for cropland use through the FSA.

Winter snowmelt and spring/summer rains quickly fill the stock tanks providing great freshwater for grass and livestock use. Stock tanks are in great shape with excellent holding capabilities.

A portion of the ranch is also enrolled in CRP through September of 2021, which can then be turned back over into additional grazing on October 1st. THE remaining CRP contract payment has the option to be transferred to the buyer for the remainder of the term.

Also included with the entire ranch is an FSA contract that is prepared and ready to be executed for additional water resources. This presents the opportunity for a funded and financed domestic/livestock well, solar powered-pump, storage container, and more allowing for reliable on-demand water throughout the entire ranch. Everything is set in place and ready to go!

Don’t miss this chance to grab ahold of your ranching or building dream at the base of the Rocky Mountains!

This ranch is also available in three separate tracts totaling 376 acres, 320 acres, and 437 acres (see separate listings for pricing/details).
