What Should I Consider When Buying a Montana Cattle Ranch?

The most important thing to consider when you’re in the market for a cattle ranch, regardless of the state, is the type of cattle operation you minted to work on your ranch. Different types of operations have different priorities, and you want to be sure you land is equipped, or can be equipped with minor updates, to handle the day-to-day business.

The largest priority for a cow-calf operation is space. There needs to be space for the proper infrastructure, including housing for the year-round staff you will need to have to help run your operation. Your Montana cattle property will also need enough space for a year-round heard that will basically double in size during calving season.

A yearling ranch, on the other hand, needs to have enough grazing land and food resources for yearlings to gain weight quickly. You want to be sure your grazing fields are large enough to sustain your herd to avoid overgrazing which can be hard to recover from with Montana’s hotter summers and frigid winters.

Why Buy a Cattle Ranch in Montana?

As we mentioned, Montana is a large, open state with plenty of room for you to run a very profitable and successful cattle business. Montana has just over 93 million acres of land, making it the 4th largest state in the country, however, it’s also the 3rd least populated state. Just over 2% of Montana’s land is taken up by developed cities and towns, and the rest is either publicly or privately owned. So, if you’re looking for a place with an abundance of space, Montana is it, and we can help you find a Montana cattle ranch that is perfect for you.

Montana also depends heavily on agriculture to help run its economy. Agriculture is the state’s top commodity, despite the fact that some may think it’s tourism. There are 2.6 million beef cattle in Montana, and 18,000 dairy cows, so, run properly, your cattle business stands to be successful and profitable from the start.

Can I Make Money on a Montana Cattle Ranch?

Yes, you can. In two ways. The first is the cattle operation you run on your land. Again, run properly, the economic dependence Montana has on agriculture gives any cattle ranch the opportunity to make a very decent profit. We’ll help you find the land, and your cattle business can do the rest.

The second way to make money on a Montana cattle ranch is owning the ranchland itself. Ranchland is becoming a more popular alternative form of investment for many investors who are tired of losing money in the risky stock market. As time goes on, your land value will appreciate, and when, or if, you decide to sell it, you can sell for a higher price than what you paid in the first place.
