Cattle Ranches Still Provide Excellent Opportunities
Much of the ranchland in Wyoming is still actively producing cattle for the nation's food supply. Of course, because some areas of the state are better suited to the production of beef than others, prospective ranch buyers are advised to work closely with local real estate experts who know the region and can explain the pros and cons of specific properties. With the state's famously harsh winters, feeding those cattle through the winter is always an issue, suggesting any land purchased with the intent of raising beef should have the capability of producing at least some of the feed required to get through the winter months.
Adequate buildings, including some protection from the elements for livestock, are always recommended. Storage structures for equipment and shop areas for needed maintenance and repairs are also requirements for most prospective buyers. If adequate structures are not currently on a ranch, however, that doesn't mean the property should be ignored, as quality land is more important than buildings. Structures can be built to meet the needs of a specific type of ranch operation, but it's virtually impossible to improve large areas of land.
Horses Can Provide Income in Many Parts of the State
Breeding, raising, training and selling horses is a profitable business in many parts of Wyoming. There is horse property for sale in Wyoming that is either currently used for horses or would lend itself to that use. As with cattle ranching, dealing with horses requires somewhat specialized fencing and buildings. When training or boarding play a role in a horse operation, structures like stables and training arenas are vital to the ranch's success.
Sportsmen Are Also Interested in Wyoming Ranches
