Working Cattle Ranch in Southern Colorado
On 10,785 acres between Kim and Pritchett, CO sits the Lazy UO Ranch, a working cattle ranch with beautiful cliff and canyon scenery. The ranch has exceptional recreational attributes and is one of a small number of ranches in southeastern Colorado frequented by big horn sheep. Live water flows through the property in West Carrizo Creek—a great resource for wildlife. The Nature Conservancy listed the ranch subject to the obligation to place a conservation easement on the property.
The Lazy UO Ranch has been well managed and has excellent infrastructure. A variety of terrain across the ranch supports a healthy ecosystem for both livestock and wild game. Elevations on the ranch vary from approximately 4,878 feet to 5,415 feet. Cliffs and fractured ledges add to the beauty of the ranch and West Carrizo Creek flows for approximately 4.7 miles through the property. There are large, open grassland areas in the northern and southern portions of the ranch with canyons running through the middle of the property. Mature cottonwoods are common in the major canyon bottom drainages which include Carrizo, Pintada, Cottonwood and Furnish Canyons. The property also includes 640 acres of state lease land that will be assigned to the buyer. Juniper and piñon are common in the rougher areas of the ranch, principally being found on the ridge lines and steeper slopes of the mesa sides and upland edges.
