SHEEP CREEK RANCH
Sheep Creek Ranch is located in southern Beaverhead County of southwestern Montana. Elevation ranges from 7200 ft to 10,000 at the top of the mountain. The ranch encompasses approximately 16,960 acres of which 3445 are deeded with 1000 irrigated. There is an older main house and two modular homes. A 4000 sq ft equipment building and large calving barn with an excellent set of steel corrals are all based at the head quarters. Owner summers 800 cow calf pairs on the ranch beginning in April through October utilizing the 475 head forest permit and irrigated land. Irrigation is from 4 creeks and Harkness Lakes and stock water is plentiful from these creeks and numerous springs. Recreation and hunting opportunities are endless with fishing in two creeks for Cutthroat Trout. Big game hunting and viewing includes deer, elk, moose, antelope and bear. The irrigated meadows draw many of these species during the hunting season as the ranch boarders the Beaverhead National Forest for almost 4 miles.
