Property Description

The Mitchell Stirrup Ranch is extremely well located northeast of Springer, New Mexico in Colfax County.

The ranch has a rolling topography, offering a blend of river bottoms, open and rolling grama grass plains with several breaks offering winter protection for livestock.

This ranch has been utilized for yearling production and the grass turf is in fantastic condition.



This ranch has been under the same long-term family ownership for decades and this is the first time the property has ever been offered for sale.



The Canadian River flows through the western portions of the ranch for over six miles. A live creek, known as Rio del Plano, flows through the eastern portions of the ranch for over five miles and ultimately drains into the Canadian on the southwestern side of the property.

Additional livestock and wildlife water is provided by three solar powered submersible pump wells and strategically located pasture drinkers and water storages. A minor amount of pipeline assists in water distribution on the ranch's northern pastures. Seasonal earth stock ponds are located throughout the ranch in all pastures.

The headquarters is watered by a city waterline from Springer.



Access to the property is by graded, maintained county road that dead-ends at the ranch gate.



The ranch headquarters is located in the western portion of the property and consists of a modest ranch house, hunter/labor quarters, a nice metal barn with concrete floor and pens/traps with digital scales.

The ranch is fenced and cross fenced into six pastures with traps.



Colfax County is well renowned for quality wildlife and the Mitchell Ranch is no exception. Pronghorn antelope numbers are terrific and the river and creek bottoms are excellent habitat for whitetail deer and elk.



This is an opportunity to purchase a very good live water ranch located in an area with a fascinating history. The Mitchell Stirrup Ranch offers quality grazing, hunting and spectacular scenic views.

Price: $475 per deeded acre
