Water allotments totaling over 4,000 acre-feet are delivered through a network of canals via the Flathead Irrigation Project to 15 pivots covering 2,018± acres. Some handlines and 39 wheel lines make up the balance of 4,100 acres under irrigation. In the unlikely event that the allotments are insufficient, the ranch has access to additional water from the Pablo Reservoir, a mere mile to the north of the ranch’s eastern boundary. Water is moved from the canals via 21± pump stations through miles of buried and surface mainline. Operationally, much of the irrigated ground is in alfalfa production averaging 4.1 tons per acre in two cuttings, with the balance in improved pasture with a small portion leased out for row crops. To complement the farming and irrigation infrastructure improvements, the current owner runs 250 mother cows year-round, along with yearlings and bulls. They also bring in an additional 1,000-1,250 pairs that they custom graze and feed depending on the season. This number of livestock is well under historical and calculated carrying capacity.

Upland Game Ranch is a contiguous block of 9,615± total acres in the Powder River Breaks of Montana along its southern border. The area is notably some of the best grass and grazing in the country, and the tall flowing stands provide shelter and cover for abundant populations of grouse and partridge. The ranch is currently leased by a local rancher that manages the ground and grazing practices with perfection. The “take half, leave half” operation in terms of grass is how the current tenant operates, creating harmony between livestock and wildlife.

Recreationally, the ranch boasts the ability for private, quiet enjoyment; it is far enough away from “town” but just close enough to enjoy day trips.

The current ranch owner has spent the last few years cleaning up old fences, small sheds, and other benign materials.

The owner currently pilots his helicopter into the ranch to cut down on travel time, and it gives one the ability to see more wildlife from the air. Some of the ranch and the Powder River Region, in general, are too rough to see from UTV or other ground transportation, and the helicopter provides the ultimate way to see more wildlife and scenery.

The Hansen Ranch offers a great opportunity to balance productive agriculture, quality bird, waterfowl, and deer habitat, and well-planned improvements on the southern edge of the Prairie Pothole Region of North America. The ranch lies six miles southeast of the Medicine Lake National Wildlife Refuge and is a near-perfect blend of rolling hills, marshy coulees, creek bottoms, and productive farm fields. The ranch consists of approximately 2,720 acres of deeded and leased land located 14 miles east of Froid, Montana, and approximately 40 miles west of Williston, North Dakota, with convenient access from all directions. The ranch features ample grazing, farming, and dryland hay production balanced with ponds, creeks, and spring-fed marshes typical of the Prairie Pothole Region. The habitat is ideal for pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge, waterfowl, and deer. The property’s wildlife prospers, due to good nesting and winter cover with food sources interspersed throughout. All improvements on the ranch have been well planned and constructed. From the comfortable 3,700+ square foot home built in 2011 to the heated 40’X96’ shop and the livestock facilities, one will find all the improvements to be appropriate and well cared for. The owners have endeavored to balance productive agriculture and recreation for decades.
