The U Bar S Ranch has what you dream of in a Wyoming Ranch:
Fertile creek bottom with early priority water rights
Timbered country adjacent to public lands
Diverse grazing and stock water capacity
Well-appointed and practical improvements
Good access with proximity to recreation and some of Wyomings best communities.
The U Bar S Ranch consists of 640+/- deeded acres balanced with, 5865+/- acres of BLM and 240+/- State and is owner rated to support about 150 animal units on an annual basis.
The 3,000 square foot home features acid stained concrete floors with radiant in-floor heat, timber beam ceilings to match the western decor, a wraparound covered deck to draw in the panoramic setting, and an inviting kitchen to enhance the well-conceived floor plan of the 3 bedroom single story design that was built in 2002. A second much older home is also on the property and could be refurbished for a guest house. Welded pipe working corrals complete the improvements as a working ranch with an alley way, riding arena, loading chute, round pen, sorting gates and side paddocks with self-waterers.
U - S Ranch is owner rated at 150 Animal Units year around. It is a well-balanced ranch with irrigated hay fields and undulating summer pasture. Two year-around streams meander through the ranch, Gooseberry Creek for nearly 3.5 miles and Buffalo Creek for nearly 1.5 miles. These streams provide sub-irrigated creek bottom, dependable stock water, and sufficient irrigation for approximately 132 acres. The topography and riparian areas provide good winter cover and significant additional forage. The Highway Junction 2017 BLM grazing permit, # 00523, allows 99 cattle from 07/15 to 02/28 on the 6,500+/- acres for $1.87 per AUM for the 663 active AUMs. The Wyoming State grazing permit GRZ-3-7766 allows 49 AUMs on the 240+/- acres for $624 per year.
U - S Ranch is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the Big Horn Basin of northwestern Wyoming.
