Here is an opportunity to buy one of the great ranches of perhaps the world!! Within sight of the town of Merritt and under 3 hours to Vancouver, enjoy a mild climate that often sees cattle grazing in February. The 960 head run by the ranch are currently used to supply a branded beef program called Ranchland Natural Beef. This is a natural grass fed beef program. The cattle are a beef booster original herd crossed red angus-simmental. The herd consists of 750 mother cows, 150 yearlings, and 36 bulls. The ranch runs on a total of 15,000 acres of private and crown land, 3546 acres of this is deeded on 18 seperate titles. 905 acres are currently irrigated, mainly under pivots and wheel lines. There are plans in place to put another 239 acres into production. The hayland produces on average 4 and half tons of hay per annum in 3 cuts. This allows the ranch the luxury of selling 500- 1000 tons of surplus hay close to the Vancouver market. The range is some of the most beautiful in the province, surrounding Lumbum Lake and bordering the Okanagan connector. Abundant and nutritous feed assure a heavy robust calf in the fall. The property boasts a modern well kept feed lot capable of housing 1200 head. Holding calves over is not difficult. An abundance of water is available. Within the boundaries of the ranch is an 87 lot subdivision. These are highly desirable properties and an ideal retirement or vacation property close to the Vancouver market. There are 900,000 cubic meters of good gravel conveniently located on a corner of the ranch closest to town and adjacent ot the highway. Mining gravel has supplied a consistent income stream to the ranch over the years and will continue to do so with minimum disruption to ranch activities. The possibility of lock, stock and barrel share sale is anticipated but not necessary. A full line of machinery, an ample amount of supplies, and effective ranch staff in place are all available. Please contact Dana Hinsche for further details on this ranch. 250-398-0914
