Farm Land For Sale in Colorado

 

Farming vs. Ranching

To an outsider, all agriculture might look the same, but to those who base their livelihoods on it, farming and ranching couldn’t be more different. Sure, both ventures involve taking a plot of land and working it to create a sustainable business, but there are some fundamental differences distinguishing the two.

Farming typically incorporates some kind of food crop, in which vast acreages of land are tilled, planted, irrigated, and harvested. The crops produced or “produce” are sold at going market rates to distributors for stores, export, or even seed. If livestock are involved they are usually pasture-raised animals such as pigs, chickens, sheep, or other livestock in which the meat of the animal is a secondary product of farming. Chickens provide eggs, cows produce milk, and sheep produce wool.

Ranching, on the other hand, usually incorporates larger livestock on a free-range environment. With cattle especially, large tracts of uncultivated land can be used to graze the animals until they are ready to harvest. Keeping the animals moving, safe from predators, and managing the land so that they have access to clean water and ample vegetation to graze is what keeps a rancher occupied throughout most of the day. Maintaining fencing, keeping track of animals that have wandered off, and even some veterinary work, from artificial insemination to treating injuries are also on the to-do list. Ranches might supplement their profits with cash crops such as hay or alfalfa fields, but these are not the primary reason for managing the ranch.

It’s All About Location

Not all land is suitable for farming, and not all land is good for ranching. Farms rely on arable land, which means reliable water sources such as rivers or at the very least consistent rainfall. Ranches require a different type of land as well, which means room for livestock to roam, access to clean water, water rights, and a place that is free from hazards that could harm the animals. Typography is important for both since farms require vast, flat areas where irrigation can be effective, and ranches are best suited to areas without hazards such as cliffs or raging rivers that could hurt cattle or horses. M4 Ranch group has a wide variety of Colorado farms for sale and Colorado ranches for sale that meet all the criteria that you need for a sustainable agricultural ranch.
