499 acre irrigated farm/ranch located in North Central MT for sale located along the Milk River.
Our farm/ranch includes a 3 bedroom 2 bath "Sears Roebuck" house with original woodwork, hip roof barn, small shop, corrals, and 3 water wells. The house is nicely finished with original styled woodwork. A garden, greenhouse, chicken coop and two shed complete the yard which is known for its beauty in the area. The mature trees shade the house in the summer and protect it in the winter making a nice environment both inside and outside. We have nice views from the big windows of the mountains and the treed valley.
2 pivots covering almost 250 acres, 150 acres acres of flood irrigation (mainly syphon tube) and the remainder is dryland pasture or building site. The land is primarily level with zero rocks. It retains moisture well and is the lowest cost per unit of production in the country.
The farmland is very flexible in how you operate it. It is flat land, with good water, and a growing season that gives you options. We can run 100 pairs plus bulls and heifers on the irrigated and dryland pasture and still farm the two circles. As a hay farm you can put up 1500 tons of hay. Or it can be a small grain farm and grow corn, canola, wheat, barley, etc. If you wished to make it a feed base for a cowherd that ran on rented land located nearby you could put up enough feed to winter 750 head of range cows if you purchase straw. We grow a ton of grass, and pretty decent crops. We are one of the best values in agriculture, with a good dollar to production ratio. Water is cheap and plentiful.
We are 40 miles away from a town that has every service. And 17 miles from county seat with grocery, doctor, hardware, autoparts, banks, etc.
