What Should I Know When Buying a Cattle Ranch in New Mexico?

The largest issue to consider when purchasing a New Mexico cattle property is the type of cattle operation you plan to run on the land. Calf-cow operations are labor intensive and traditionally require year-round ranch staff. If this is the route you plan to take with your cattle business, you will need to consider the grazing land available for cows in the off-season, as well as infrastructure to house your staff throughout the year.

If you plan to run a yearling ranch, you will want to prioritize grazing land to give your herd the space and food resources it needs so the yearlings can gain weight quickly. However, no matter the operation you plan to run on your New Mexico cattle property, you will want to consider water resources, carrying capacity, and operational strategy when looking for a ranch to purchase.

At Harrigan Land, we understand the hard work that goes into making a successful cattle ranch, and we are certain that we can find you a New Mexico cattle ranch that will fit the needs of your cattle operation, and have everything you want in a western large acreage ranch.

Why Buy a Cattle Property in New Mexico?

Like we’ve mentioned, agriculture is one of the single most important economic commodities throughout the West. In 2019, the total value of agricultural production throughout New Mexico was over $3.44 billion and the individual value of livestock was $2.43 billion.

So, if moving West and owning your own cattle ranch sounds like an old black-and-white cowboy blockbuster pipedream, you are mistaken. There is still value in owning and operating a New Mexico cattle ranch, and you can stand to make a considerable profit with the right land and a successful business.

Can I Make Money on a Cattle Ranch in New Mexico?

Considering the above statistics, absolutely you can, and ranch owners have more than one opportunity to rake in a substantial profit.

On one hand, the business you choose to run on your ranch will make you money in the short run. In terms of a cattle ranch, the operation you choose to run, whether calf-cow or yearling, will obviously require a significant amount of work, however, when successful, cattle ranch owners can make a very decent yearly profit.

On the other hand, owning ranchland is a significant alternative investment opportunity. The cattle business you run on the ranch will make you money in the short-term, while the land you own will appreciate over time. Then, when and if you decide to sell your New Mexico cattle ranch, you can sell for higher than your original buying price.
