Abundant grazing, efficient facilities, wells, pipelines, natural water sources, and ideal weather, too! The many improvements, production potential, plus sheer vast amounts of highly productive land make this operation an exceptional offering.
Stretching over an impressive 77, 467 acres, Dark Canyon Ranch features pristine grasslands and pastures that give way to gently rolling plains, and high plains with canyons, draws and rocky outcroppings. Ponds and arroyos throughout the unit hold water for much of the year providing drinking locations for livestock and wildlife.
The livestock facility structures
The ranch is divided into three management units (North Camp, South Camp, and Zubi headquarters) for ease of operation, each with its own facilities, along with extensive cross-fencing throughout for optimal efficiency.
Each headquarters includes:
Support barns (including shearing barns and equipment barns)
Corrals and pens
Horse and tack rooms
Sheds and storage
Boundary and interior fences
The livestock water systems work to support the natural water ponds and draws throughout the pastures. The ranch provides 20 electric wells and one windmill. These wells pump to several water storage tanks that distribute water to multiple livestock drinkers via approximately 42 miles of pipeline.
Homes & Dwellings
Constructed for function and comfort, the dwellings are perfectly suited to a working ranch life. From a family home, to ranch help housing, office, storage or hunting quarters, the buildings can suit a variety of uses or needs.
At the Zubi Headquarters you’ll find a roomy wood-framed, two-story family home that includes four bedrooms and three baths.
The dwelllings on the North and South Camp Headquarters are manufactured homes.
Wildlife on the subject property includes barbary sheep in the western portions of the ranch, mule deer throughout the many draws and lower parts of the ranch, blue quail and pronghorn antelope throughout the high plains. Elk have been seen trespassing nearby to the west.
