Beaver Rim Ranch

Property Details

Beaver Rim Ranch is an investment ranch sitting in the shadows of the Big Horn Mountains located between Shell and Greybull, Wyoming. The ranch consists of approximately 475+/- deeded acres and holds the grazing lease to over 10,000 acres of BLM. Beaver Creek traverses the entire length of the deeded portion of the ranch providing water and cover for livestock and wildlife alike. The ranch is home to various species of wildlife, including deer, elk, antelope, turkey, pheasant, hungarian partridge, and chucker. The ranch holds irrigation rights on both Levitt Reservoir and Beaver Creek with over 160 acres currently under irrigation for grazing with an owner rated carrying capacity of 50 animal units. The ranch borders thousands of acres of BLM land and is only minutes by public road to untouched Forest Service land in the Big Horn Mountains. There is plenty of room to roam and hunt on this Wyoming property and is the perfect location for the outdoor enthusiast. Close to several towns such as Greybull, Powell, Billings, Cody, Sheridan and Buffalo providing all necessities and amenitites. Deeded riparian creek bottoms like this in this area are very rare and this parcel is a blank canvas for new improvements. Good water rights on the deeded portion of the ranch, both off Levitt Reservoir and Beaver Creek, provide ample irrigation to the upper bench and the creek bottom making it highly productive. The BLM lease acres do not provide a significant benefit to the carrying capacity of the ranch but do provide a vast track of land to explore.
