Marton Ranch - Natrona & Carbon Counties, WY With elevations from 5,300 to 7,500 feet, this large, working cattle and sheep operation consists of 68,150 contiguous acres consisting of 34,300 deeded acres, 25,850 BLM lease acres, and 8,000 State of Wyoming lease acres. The ranch has approximately two miles of North Platte River frontage. The ranch headquarters lie 20 miles south of Casper, Wyoming near Alcova, approximately a mile off of Wyoming Highway 220. The headquarters are on the north portion of the ranch with the remaining ranch running to the southeast to the top of Bear Mountain. The improvements are nice, but not overdone, in good repair and ready to move in with a continuance of the present operation which now runs about 450 mother cows, 2,300 ewes, and a support staff of replacement yearlings and breeding stock. The owners feel that with just running cattle on the ranch, the ranch could run approximately 700 head of mother cows. Livestock water is provided from a wide variety of sources including streams, springs, reservoirs, solar wells, electric wells, and artesian wells. The winter range starts at the river bottoms and continues upward in elevation to the summer country which overlooks Pathfinder and Alcova Reservoirs. Winter feed is supplemented with 600 to 700 tons of hay bought from the nearby neighbors. The wildlife segment is an allotment of its own with deer, antelope, elk, waterfowl, upland birds, and, of course, blue ribbon trout fishing.
