Ag Uses

The Beard Ranch is in the early stages of being improved for cattle and horses and is already showing major gains. The owners are currently running a very conservative 70 pairs with no supplemental feed (estimated 100-130 head depending on breed, rainfall and supplemental feeding). They have spent an enormous amount of time improving the rangeland by removing yucca, cacti, and sage as well as shredding pastures on a schedule to provide the most gains. You will be able to see the difference between neighboring ranches and this ranch in photos along fence lines. Photos were taken right after spring mowing of some pastures stimulating tremendous amounts of new growth in all species of native grasses. In addition, the owners utilize rotational grazing further improving pastures.

This ranch has tremendous potential and with continued efforts similar to what current owners have been utilizing, new owners will see even more improvement in the coming years making this an excellent cattle, horse or combination ranch.


There is good hunting for antelope on the ranch as well as predators.


This ranch is set up to be enjoyed by horse enthusiasts. Whether you want to train cutting horses, team roper, calf rope or train horses for a variety of disciplines this ranch is ready. All you need to do is bring your horses and cattle.
