Colorado Cattle Ranches For Sale

Back in the early 1800s, the influence of predominantly grazing was adopted by Mexican cattle producers and the term "Rancho" which identified a gathering of people eating together, became associated with this way of living. To this day, a ranch is much like a family, in which a group of workers or "hands" often live on the property in bunkhouses and share meals together. They work the land and depend on their own resources, improvisations, and tenacity to raise cattle or other livestock without much in the way of needing to plant, cultivate, or harvest plant crops.

The Cattle-ranching Lifestyle

Cattle ranching evokes a lot of romantic notions of riding herd at sunset, watching the sun dip down behind the mountains. Pushing cattle over snaking rivers and into greener pastures on horseback. But cattle ranching is actually a lot of hard work that goes with moments such as these. Ranchers work long hours, every day of the year. They have limited resources and are dependent on market prices for their cattle, cutting costs to increase profit margins, and even dealing with losses due to predators, natural disasters such as blizzards and droughts, and any number of other forces at work against them. Ranching isn't for the faint of heart and when you are a rancher you never really get the day off. You are always thinking of your next move, branding, hiring and firing hands, artificial insemination, and getting the most out of your investment. Running a ranch is a lot like being the CEO of a major corporation, only you have to put on your gloves and boots and get dirty a lot.

The work is hard, but it is fulfilling. You get to work outside with diverse people, close to nature, and you get to call the land your own.

What to Look For in a Colorado Cattle Ranch

Before deciding on a cattle farm property for ranching there are a number of things you need to consider. As with any real estate, location is important. Does the spread have access to water? What kind of water rights are you getting with this parcel? If there are homes and outbuildings, what kind of condition are they in? Are they worth fixing up, or can you knock them all down and start over? What are summers and winters like in the area? What kinds of resources are nearby, such as access to public roads, equipment on the property, or even access to public lands for expanded grazing? Can the cattle ranch for sale yield a good hay crop for not only your livestock in the winter, but potentially to sell as a bumper crop?

For these and many other questions, it is important to do your research before making any decisions on choosing a Colorado cattle ranch that is for sale, and that's why M4 Ranch Group is here to help.
