Located only minutes west of Wyoming’s capital city, Happy Jack Ranch – East is composed of approximately 9,830 deeded acres of rich grasslands that once supported vast herds of bison, and now keep a large herd of Black Angus cattle fat and happy. The ranch is configured in a single block positioned squarely between the outskirts of Cheyenne and the recreational magnets of Curt Gowdy State Park and the famous Vedauwoo Rocks climbing area. Simply put, as a beautifully situated, turn key cattle ranch with fabulous access and development potential, Happy Jack Ranch – East has few peers.
When the nation’s first transcontinental railroad, the Union Pacific, passed just south of the present ranch in 1869, the region was already well-known for its bison herds and nomadic Native American tribes that followed them. Today, tipi rings arrowheads can still be found on the ranch. With the completion of the railroad, cattle ranchers, attracted by the easy terrain and rich grasslands, quickly settled.
