Here is your chance to buy a quality cattle ranch, with the capacity to run up to approx. 300 cow/calf pairs, depending on the breed. This farm is a third-generation cattle ranch, with many improvements having been done to the land over the years so you won’t have too. However, there is opportunity to expand your operation if needed. Further clearing, land breaking and additional cross-fencing could allow you to run even greater numbers if required. The land is basically in a block, so no cattle need to be trucked around to pasture.
The main house is a custom-built ranch home, privately situated, with lots of natural shelter & beauty surrounding. The ranch is an unspoilt area well noted for outdoor recreation, with swimming, boating, fishing, hunting, etc.
Winnipegosis, where the bus will take your kids for K-12 schooling is your main service providing town for this ranch. The communities of Meadow Portage & Rorketon aren’t far away either. The local cattle market is in Ste Rose du Lac, approx. 40 minutes away
