This historical and productive short grass ranch is in the south central part of the Oklahoma panhandle, with a headquarters tucked away on the leeward side of a beautiful bluff overlooking it all. The Double S is a carefully-managed ranch in great condition that has been producing some of the finest quality black angus cows for over 20 years, and served as home to a variety of healthy wildlife species. It has the rolling vistas and expansive terrain expected in this high plains area of western Oklahoma, with the addition of dynamic topography and diverse habitat from the Sand Creek and Beaver River dry creek systems.
Land: In addition to the deeded acreage, the ranch currently also leases approximately 2,469 acres from the state. See highlighted areas shown on the map. All parcels (deeded and leased) are contiguous, except for approximately 440 acres about one half mile down the road with the ranch foreman’s house. The property is generally flat, with some rolling hills and dynamic drainage breaks with cottonwood, hackberry, elm and willow trees. Typical cover for this high plains region of the great plains include various native grasses, gramma and some bluestem.
Livestock: Ranch management has been careful not to overgraze the range conditions, and the ranch has historically carried about 200 cows. The bulk of supplemental feed is stored in on-site silage pit, with the ranch using approximately 650 tons per year. The pens, fences and cross fences are in great working condition.
Water: There is productive ground water in this specific region with a lot of irrigation nearby. The Double S has 9 windmills, and 3 submersible pumps at the headquarters. Water well depths range from 20′-80′ and they flow at approximately 2-5 gpm. The ranch receives an average of 16-18″ of rainfall annually.
Location: The ranch is located between Dalhart, Texas and Guymon, Oklahoma and just north of the state line across from Stratford. It is west of FM 95 in the southwest part of Texas County, which is bounded on the north and south by Kansas and Texas.
Wildlife: Wildlife on the ranch is abundant, with a healthy population of bob white quail across the ranch, pronghorn antelope, and mule deer and whitetail deer that find sanctuary in the intermittent creek system breaks and cottonwood areas.
Improvements: The headquarters on the main ranch include an older brick home centered around an original dugout which is the home’s current basement, 1 workshop in excellent condition, 1 new barn, and a good set of pens. In addition, there is a foreman’s house on a 440 acre parcel nearby.
Minerals: A portion of the mineral estate sale is available with an acceptable contract. Please ask broker for details. There is very little current production.
