Attached to two baseproperties totaling 80 acres within the San Luis Valley near Alamosaare massive allotments on both BLM and United States Forest Serviceland near Rifle, Colorado, that total 6119 AUMs, presently sufficientfor grazing 858 cow/calf units in the summer months. An additional BLMallotment near Grand Junction can support 200 animals throughout thewinter.

Encompassing elevationsfrom approximately 6500 feet to 9500 feet, these allotments providethe ideal seasonal variation for moving cattle upward in elevationtowards new growth as the summer progresses. These allotments aregenerally rolling in nature, covering everything from pinon/juniperforest and grasslands, through grassy aspen groves, and to darkspruce/fir forests. With abundant creeks and springs throughout, waterfor livestock is not a problem. These allotments begin to be availableMay 15 or each year and run through December. They also include a cowcamp and horse pasture for summer use. The winter BLM allotment is presently permitted for 203 AUMs for themonths of January through April. This allotment, roughly 5000 feet inelevation, is only a couple of hours from the Rifle leases, and liesconveniently close to the city of Grand Junction. Water trucks andtanks are the permitted sources of water for this winter lease. In more ways than one, the Spanish Forks grazing permits preservemountain ranching at its best.
