Wyoming Cattle Ranches: Where abundant water meets the rolling grasslands and granite outcrops of southern Wyoming, the result is Granite Canyon Ranch, a proven cattle operation and a perennial refuge for mule deer and antelope. Add in simple year-round access to Cheyenne, only 20 minutes away, and negotiable mineral rights, and Granite Canyon Ranch becomes an investment/recreational property of the highest caliber.
The natural grasslands west of Cheyenne have long been a cattleman’s dream, and the 2538 acres of Granite Canyon Ranch have great potential for turning out fat Angus or Herefords. Summer grazing is a given here, but keeping cattle here year-round is a possibility as well. More than ample water is available for keeping 160 acres well-irrigated for hay, and the ranch has a record of producing a respectable one ton of hay/acre.
Located at an elevation of approximately 7500 feet, the rolling terrain of the ranch is covered mostly with grass, with sections of scattered woods of ponderosa pine, mountain mahogany and a few granite outcrops. In places, scenic views of the Medicine Bow Mountains grace the horizon, and the ranch feels delightfully secluded, although it is less than 20 miles west of Wyoming’s capital city.
