The Shortridge Ranch on Smith Creek, historically known as the Shoco Ranch, is located near beautiful and historic Augusta, Montana. In the shadows of one of the most magnificent mountain features in the West the Rocky Mountain Front and Haystack Butte, the Ranch straddles about one and a half miles of Smith Creek, one of the finest personal-sized trout streams in the area. The Ranch consists of about 678 acres of deeded land with approximately 260 acres of lush creek bottom, sub-irrigated pastures and irrigated hay meadows. The hay meadows have been leveled and are predominately flood irrigated with gated pipe. Approximately five acres are under buildings and corrals with the balance in native range land. A small 47-acre State of Montana Lease parcel located on the northeast corner of the Ranch will also convey with the sale. Modest but well-kept improvements are easily accessible just off of Highway 435. The pastures are judicially fenced to maximize grazing efficiency of the meadows and the riparian corridor. Smith Creek is fenced off with wildlife-friendly fencing protecting this prolific fishery from livestock disturbance. Owned by the Shortridge Family for over one-hundred years, the Ranch has both an historic appeal and enticing recreational amenities. Historically operated as a pure-bred Red Angus cattle operation by the Shortridge Family, the Ranch will provide its next owner an authentic, productive ranch on a great trout fishery and hunting preserve with close proximity to some of the very best outdoor recreation and beauty Montana has to offer. The Shortridge Ranch on Smith Creek conveys a genuine sense of security and privacy while living less than an hour from Great Falls. MOTIVATED SELLER!
