The Hall Ranch represents a well-blocked 22,483± acre Wyoming operating cattle ranch. It lies in a contiguous block of primarily deeded land (only 5,280± acres of BLM and state Lease) with over 20 miles of Rock Creek as it zig-zags through the heart of the ranch. From the headquarters, it is an easy 10-minute drive into Rock River on the well-maintained Fetterman Road that runs east and west through the ranch. This county-maintained road serves as an easy way to commute through the ranch and is the arterial access to its network of roads and pastures. Regardless of unpredictable moisture, the road allows for all types of vehicular traffic. Anchoring the ranch are 1,930± acres under flood irrigation, which provides an excellent feed base for a year-round cattle operation or makes exceptional grass hay to sell to compliment a summer grazing program. Historically, the ranch has been operated as either a year-round, cow/calf pair operation or as a summer grazing unit for tenant cattle. Most summers allow for 1,200-1,300 pairs or 2,000-2,200 yearling stockers to graze for a five month period and hay to sell. On an annual basis, the ranch has supported over 850+ pairs, year-round. With 20+ miles of riparian area along Rock Creek , over 15 reservoirs and ponds, and a diversity of open high plains prairie, the ranch is well-populated with both deer and antelope. The wildlife co-exists well with the cattle operation, both having room and habitat for healthy populations. The rangeland is made up of high plains, known for the area, that are carved with deep coulees and draws that drain into the winding creek bottom. Hunting for deer and antelope is excellent, and there is good waterfowl hunting along the waterways with some upland birds along the creek and on the prairie.
