Topography, Rangeland & Habitat
This is gently rolling country, undulating from grassy hilltops through shallow draws and back up the next hill. This terrain lends itself to tank construction, and the ranch boasts 5 stock tanks, the largest of which are 3-4 acres when full. Elevations range from +/-230 to 280 feet. Soils on the ranch are predominantly sandy loams and sandy clay loams. Approximately 70% of this ranch consists of Class 2 soils per USDA data. Combined with average rainfall of approximately 36 inches, this ranch will grow some grass. The current stocking ratio is 1 A.U. to 6.5 acres. Most of this ranch is open country dotted with scattered live oaks and small oak motts providing great visual appeal. Approximately 150 acres along one of the wet-weather creeks is classic Goliad County live oak country, providing natural shelter for cattle and wildlife alike.
White-tailed deer, hogs, turkey, dove, and quail, plus varmints and waterfowl frequent the ranch.
Current stocking rate is approximately 1 animal unit to 6.5 acres. Covered, pipe working pens are located at the arena. Perimeter fences are net-wire + barbwire top wires. Cross-fenced into multiple pastures. Grasslands are generally clean pasture, with some light brush around the oaks.
