Tract 1 - 257.67± Acres County Road D, Livingston, WI 53554

Description

Tract one consists of 257.67± acres and is a “turn-key” working cattle ranch with everything a serious cattle rancher would need. The ranch is easily capable of running 250 plus animal units with numerous pastures and cross fencing for seasonal grazing rotation. The pasture is arguably some of the best pasture in the Tri-State area. The ranch boasts over 6 miles of at least four strands of barbed wire fence, which is in good condition. The original barn is utilized for working the cattle with multiple holding pens. The barn could be easily turned into an artificial insemination setup to further increase the ranch's value. There are two different streams that flow through the property providing ample sources of water for the livestock. In addition to cattle, you’ll find the recreational hunting opportunities on this ranch to be excellent.
