An Introduction to Montana Ranches for Sale
Montana is a truly magnificent state with so much to see and do within its borders. Grasslands, lakes, and mountain ranges create a diverse terrain perfect for ranching and outdoor activities. The Rocky Mountains, Great Plains, and the open spaces of the Glacier National Park all combine to create the stunning landscape Montana is famous for. In the times of our forefathers, it was the final frontier, and for those that made it, they were delighted about that too.Cattle ranching is big business for the state, which like Nebraska, has more head of cattle than people. Either directly working cattle or working in partnership with cattle owners offer attractive business opportunities. Regardless of the reasons for investing, Montana ranches for sale represent an exciting investment opportunity, which doesn’t come along every day.
Montana has a rich history of cattle ranching, and this doesn’t show any signs of changing anytime soon. Various species of cow and sheep provide a vital source of income for successful cattle operations. Depending on the location of the ranch, it is possible to conduct money-making activities throughout the year. For example, the Antelope Springs Ranch in Cohagen represents a very exciting investment.
There are significant tracts of land suitable for raising sizeable numbers of cows and sheep. Dairy, beef, and wool are all in high demand, and this ranch has the scope to produce all three in large quantities.
Cinch Buckle Ranch in Broadus, also, offers excellent scope for raising cows. The current owners have made a significant investment in improving the water supply to minimize the effects of drought and to sustain the land for a large herd of cattle.
Raising cattle is not the only thing that draws people to Montana. Outdoorsmen, sportsmen, explorers, and adventurers have been brought to the iconic landscape, punctuated by clear, blue lakes and mountain ranges for generations. Large tracts of land remain relatively untouched and no matter whether you are on foot, horseback, or in a truck you are likely to be awestruck by the captivating views.
Fly-fishing is first class in Montana with numerous stretches of Blue Ribbon Trout rivers. Sundance Bench Ranch is well-placed to take advantage of this and enjoys a private stretch of the Madison River. Hours can be spent enjoying the tranquility of nature while catching some of the largest trout on offer.
Being home to some stunning national parks such as Glacier and parts of Yellowstone means that big game can regularly be seen wondering through the ranches. Chief Mountain Ranch occupies a superlative tract of land close to Glacier, so bears, moose, and elk are examples of potential hunting opportunities.
In addition to their livestock operations, Cinch Buckle and Antelope Springs see large numbers of antelope, mule deer, and game, providing a welcome distraction when not attending to the cattle.
The ranches above are just a sample of what is on offer in ‘The Treasure State,’ and if you find the West beckoning you, then Montana might just be the best place for you to start your new life.
