The Two Furrow Ranch has not changed hands in over a half-century. That ownership continuum reflects well in the fine condition of the ranch and the improvements. The developed stock water, which consists of five wells, five miles of pipeline, and 15 tanks, should be considered well-located, well-built, and well-cared for. The ranch sits astride the boundary between the Langs Fork of Big Dry Creek and Duck Creek, which feeds into Little Dry Creek. Most of the ranch is considered a gently rolling country with sandier soils on the south end and more clay to the north. Much of the farmland has been seeded to permanent pasture, but there is farmland on the south end that is currently in a crop/fallow rotation and utilized for producing winter forage. There are flood-irrigated meadows in the northwest part of the ranch that have been seeded to annual forage crops and put up for hay. Consider average yields in the one-and-a-half to two tons per acre on these meadows, depending on water availability. Historically, dryland winter wheat yields an average of about 40 bushels per acre.

At the heart of Bar MZ Ranch lies a majestic 100-year-old barn, surrounded by expansive meadows, meandering creeks, and natural springs. Burnt Creek winds almost two miles through the property, providing ample stock water and irrigation for over 500 acres. With year-round flow, Burnt Creek is ideal for stream enhancement and riparian improvement. The diverse landscape of Bar MZ Ranch, nestled in the foothills of the Tobacco Root Mountains, features meadows with quaking aspen, offering a haven for wildlife including elk, deer, moose, antelope, and bear. Upland birds such as pheasant and Hungarian partridge are also common. This rich diversity provides exceptional recreational opportunities. Surrounding the ranch headquarters, over 500 acres of flood-irrigated meadows yield an annual harvest of 125 tons of grass hay, with the remaining meadows used for fall and winter grazing. The west side of the ranch features spring-fed, rocky drainages opening into a large basin with willow and aspen groves, offering ample cover for livestock. From this vantage point, admire breathtaking vistas of the Tobacco Root Mountains to the west and the Madison Range to the southeast. A unique highlight is the highest point on the range, overlooking a large meadow where Wolf Creek emerges. Here, the remnants of an old homestead, marked by a solitary chimney, stand as a testament to the ranch’s rich history. Historically used for summer and fall grazing, this area is currently leased to a local rancher. Bar MZ Ranch is well-equipped with the infrastructure and carrying capacity to support 150 cow/calf pairs, making it ideal for both cow-calf and yearling operations. Experience the best of Montana’s ranching heritage at Bar MZ Ranch, where nature, history, and modern ranching converge in perfect harmony. Welcome to your new haven. Welcome to Bar MZ Ranch.
