Things To Consider When Buying A Cattle Ranch


How the cattle ranch will operate will be your number one concern. There are several factors involved.

  1. Type of Ownership - Will the owner be an owner/operator or an absentee owner?
  2. Type of Operation - Will it be a cow/calf or yearling operation?
  3. Seasonal Strategy - How will the herd be handled in the winter months?
  4. Capacity - What is the stocking rate of the property?

Water Resources

Water is critical to the operation of any cattle ranch. The quality of the water is also very important. Factors that need to be in place are:

  • Water rights for irrigation
  • Riparian areas
  • Wells
  • Tanks
  • Underground piping


Ranchers need a basic infrastructure that is in good condition to operate. These include fencing, cross-fencing, cattle guards, and gates. Other working facilities may also be essential, including medical facilities, corrals, scales, and chutes.
