LOCATION: This ranch is located approximately four miles west of Interstate 5 between the towns of Red Bluff and Corning. Red Bluff and Corning lie a little over 100 miles north of our state capitol, Sacramento.
INGRESS & EGRESS: The ranch is easily accessed from Paskenta Road from the north, Simpson Road from the south, and Gyle Road (Clark Road) midway. All of these paved roads are county maintained and in very good condition.
DESCRIPTION: The ranch consists of 10,230 assessed acres. It is very hard to find a ranch of this size in one location. The ranch’s highest and best use would be a cattle ranch for winter grazing.
IMPROVEMENTS: There are no structural improvements on the ranch.
TOPOGRAPHY: The ranch is basically gently rolling terrain with small drainages passing through. This ranch’s topography makes for a very good cattle ranch.
INCOME: The grazing rights for the ranch currently bring in $115,000 per year through a grazing agreement. A copy of this agreement is available upon request. The ranch also brings in an additional $26,000 per year in payments from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA). The $26,000 in income comes from wheat base payments associated with the ranch. The wheat base was created sometime ago from a farming operation on the ranch.
FARMLAND/CROPLAND: The ranch consists of 10,179 farmland acres, of which 7,723 are cropland acres. Associated on the cropland acres is the wheat base. The wheat base acreage is 4,357 acres with a USDA Farm Service Agency yield of fourteen (14) sacks per acre. This base acreage and yield determines the FSA income which has been approximately $26,000 per year.
SOILS/WETLANDS: The soils on the ranch consist of grades I-V with the majority of the ranch being grades III, IV and V. These soils are best suited for the ranch’s current use of cattle grazing. Parts of this ranch could possibly be planted to tree crops consisting of high density olives. To plant olives a potential buyer would have to do extensive studies to determine if tree crops are possible. The two major problems with tree crop production are the existing wetlands scattered throughout the property and development of adequate irrigation.
CARRYING CAPACITY: The cattle carrying capacity of the ranch is approximately 6,000 animal unit months (AUM’s). An AUM is defined as the amount of feed needed for a 1,000 pound animal during a month to sustain life. The recent use of the ranch suggests a productivity of 0.59 AUM’s per acre, which equates to 11.8 acres per animal unit.
PRICE: $12,276,000 ( $1,200 per assessed acre).
