Property Description

The versatile 502-acre Sandy River Ranch is now on the market! The ranch offers 415 open grazing acres, fenced and cross-fenced with over 26,000 feet of 5 to 6 strand barbed wire or net wire very well set up for rotational grazing. The farm also features a 1.5-mile lane way road that leads to the working facility located at the north end of the ranch. Included is a 50x100 barn, a hydraulic chute, functional scales, 7 pipe welded corrals joined to grass paddocks with 240 feet of inline concrete feed bunk space along with freeze-proof water troughs; all forming a half “wagon wheel” centering toward the corrals and barn.

The farm features 4 pastures each 35-50 acres very well organized to move cattle among them with ease, no matter if you work them on horseback or by vehicle. The 7-tower pivot is ¼ mile long and provides water at a rate of 800-1000 gallons per minute. It is set up to walk between 105-acre and 70-acre pastures currently used for grazing and hay production but has in previous years been used for row crop production in the easily tillable high sandy loam. Hay production in these irrigated pastures generally yields between 3-5 1100-pound bales per acre of Bermuda/Crabgrass mix and provides 4-6 cuts per year.

The Sandy River Ranch easily supports 250 head of mixed cattle and has been used to graze as many as 650 yearling cattle along with supplemental feeding. Each of the 7 pastures has ponds for drinking and features a native grass mix of Bermuda, Crabgrass, Bahia, and clover; while also producing excellent cold weather seeding forage of ryegrass, wild oats, vetch, and fescue.

Recreational opportunities are abundant with the south end of the property home to a long, narrow 50-acre strip featuring over 2/3 mile of Arkansas River frontage. Excellent fishing and camping can be found on the river and subsequent inlets. The mixed cover along the river is home to abundant numbers of whitetail deer. The sand bars and water pits along the river frontage also provide exceptional waterfowl and dove hunting opportunities.

The ranch headquarters is home to multiple structures including the 50x100 working facility, a 50x100 open-faced steel barn with a concrete floor and 30-foot apron, a 40x100 open-ended wooden “stacking shed”, 6 metal grain bins each with a 10,000 bushel on a concrete pad, and a 1280 square foot, 3 bedroom/2 bath living quarters. The 180 feet deep well provides water to the entire headquarters.
