Western Ranch Brokers has several new listings to announce – and more to follow in the coming weeks. Today’s sneak peek at our new offerings include two cattle operations within 30 minutes of two of Montana’s  largest cities – the Basin Ranch near Billings and the Milligan Canyon Ranch near Bozeman

.Basin Ranch | Billings, MT | 9,721± acres

The 9,721± acre Basin Ranch is the only available ranch of this size minutes outside of Billings, Montana. The family-owned property is a well-maintained and successful cattle operation with grazing available on 8,321± acres plus 1,400± acres of tillable and improved pasture. There is also an option to buy an additional 8,037± acres adjacent to the ranch.

The property has wells, springs and extensive habitats and leks for sage grouse; however, no conservation easements are currently in place. Elk, mule deer and antelope are prevalent, and no public roads run through the property. The owner’s home was built in 2001 and is ideally placed. Other improvements include a manager’s home, numerous outbuildings and a hangar.

The Basin Ranch offers multiple opportunities: continue to operate it as a cattle ranch; lease or buy additional land on adjacent property; rotate to grain and/or crops when commodity prices are more favorable; implement a conservation easement; lease sage grouse habitat to Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks; and more – all within minutes from Billings.

Milligan Canyon Ranch | Three Forks, MT | 10,996 ± acres

The Milligan Canyon Ranch is a beautiful, well-watered and well-managed 10,996± acre property with direct access to I-90 and 30 minutes from Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

The property is one of the largest ranches available near Bozeman, and its located at the epicenter of some of Montana’s finest cultural and recreational experiences, near the confluence of the Madison, Gallatin and Jefferson Rivers.

The Milligan Canyon Ranch is currently run as a winter headquarters for a larger cattle ranch operation and could be a year-round cow-calf operation carrying 450 pair with buying hay. The ranch’s excellent wildlife habitat supports solid populations of elk, mule deer, Hungarian partridges and other upland birds.

The Milligan Canyon Ranch features a luxury owner’s home with an artesian fed pond in a private, protected elevated draw. Other improvements include a manager’s home, machine shed, grain bins, calving barn with an apartment above, and feedlots.

The ranch is located in an area which is experiencing rapid growth providing strong investment potential related to development or conservation easement while still maintaining a recreation/ranch lifestyle. The property includes all four corners of the I-90 intersection for future commercial development considerations.
