The Goshen Rim Ranch

Property Details

The Goshen Rim Ranch is a 25,377 +/- deeded acre ranch and sporting property located in western Goshen County, Wyoming southwest of Torrington and southeast of Wheatland on the Platte County Line. The ranch is 93 percent deeded and is further benefitted by an additional 1,440 +/- State of Wyoming lease acres, 440 +/- BLM lease acres and 160 +/- private lease acres. This is the quintessential legacy cattle operation. The ranch is water by dozens of prolific year-round natural springs, developed springs and solar wells. The dramatic panorama of the Goshen Rim rises 600-800 feet in elevation above the improvements with summer pastures on top of the rim and winter grass and protection throughout the lower elevations in heavily timbered box canyons with live water in dense riparian draws. Boxelder Creek is a spring creek that originates on the property and generates volume from multiple springs as it flows down the canyon walls. The ranch topography is as diverse as its wildlife and offers tremendous recreation benefits for hunting elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, upland birds, turkeys and other wildlife species. This ranch represents Wyoming's raw, rugged beauty and is a rare opportunity to own one of the best, low-overhead cow/calf operations in the state of Wyoming. This ranch is very private and is located at the end of the well-maintained county road.

Features

The Goshen Rim Ranch is a low-overhead grass ranch with a variety of native and improved hard grass species high in protein yielding excellent gains on cattle. The ranch is cross-fenced into approximately twenty pastures for flexible management and efficient grazing rotation to maximize the utilization of grass. All fences are in good condition. The many draws, ravines, hills, springs, and spring creeks provide an abundance of natural protection and forage for livestock and wildlife. The box canyons on the ranch are better protection that if the ranch had multiple calving barns scattered throughout the ranch. Many of the draws along the Goshen Rim have chokecherry bushes and wild grapes.

All wells have been converted to solar wells to of the wells feed supply tanks. Ten tanks run off other solar wells. Seven tanks are on a natural, but developed, spring pipeline system and two tanks are on individual developed springs. The deepest well on top of the rim is approximately 164’.

The ranch has an estimated carrying capacity of approximately 1,000-1,200 cow/calf pairs with a bull to cow ratio of 1 bull for 25 cows.
