Southern Oregon Pasture Ranch With Flood Irrigated Pastures


Bordering the northern side of Goose Lake and 8 miles south of Lakeview sits this diverse ranch offering grazing on over 3,500 deeded acres. Cross fencing allows for cattle rotation on aerated meadows and there are 7 artesian wells strategically placed around the property to provide stock water. Native forage includes fescue, meadow fox grass and clover and there is over 800 acres of flood irrigated pasture land. 200+/- acres have historically been cultivated and put in triticale under sprinkler irrigation. An additional 95+/- acres is also in triticale and 195+/- acres were recently cleared for production. A high water table ensures strong pasture grasses on the non-irrigated shoreline near Goose Lake. Moveable electric fencing allows riparian grazing as the shoreline recedes throughout the year. A BLM lease allows grazing of a fenced 40+/- acre parcel located within the boundary of this property. There are two parcels of land in CRP. One is 17 acres and the other is 52.2+/- acres. Thomas Creek, which is the biggest tributary of Goose Lake, flows north to south for over 2 miles through the property and provides primary water to the flood irrigation system. With help from Ducks Unlimited, efficient use of the water was made possible through the main diversion dam, secondary diversion points, drains, and a well-designed system of dikes, ditches and headgates. The construction of a new and improved bridge for the dam is set to begin during the summer of 2021. This new bridge will be wide enough to drive a passenger vehicle across. Two large water storage areas draw in impressive numbers of ducks and geese. This land could be further developed with hunting stands to suit the needs of waterfowl enthusiasts ranging from the recreational to the hunting club level. Other wildlife that frequent the property include deer and pronghorn. This expansive pasture ranch has the ability to consistently carry 600+/- pairs and the owner was recently awarded the 2020 Landowner of the Year by the Lake County Watershed Council. Improvements include a 40’ x 60’ shop with multiple overhead doors, concrete floor and 3 phase power, an older wooden 30’ x 200’ lambing shed and corrals. A home site near the entrance of the property comes ready with a domestic well, power and septic. Three hydrants provide water in the shed, corrals and at the shop. Listed well under a 2021 appraisal, this large offering is priced to sell. Contact the listing agent today to inquire about scheduling a private tour.
