Cattle and Farming Operation

If you’re looking for a small ranching operation in an area that is a bit off the beaten path and where prices are less influenced by mountain views and trout, and more about productivity and value, we invite you to look at the Hoyt Ranch. Comprising about 2,042 deeded acres, the Hoyt Ranch is a very private and end of the county road ranch. This scenic and well balanced small cattle and farming operation is located about 4 miles southeast of Lavina, MT in a region known for good grass, small grain farming and oil seed production, as well as upland bird and big game hunting. Currently the ranch is used just for cattle production and hunting, but it remains eligible for wheat planting. The ranch is divided into two separate parcels, commonly known as the Home Parcel and the Painted Robe Creek Parcel. Each Parcel is conveniently located only a short ½ mile apart from the other and both are easily accessible by county roads, so management and access is not an issue and the two parcels are very complimentary of one and other for operational purposes, but each parcel can easily be operated independently of the other, too. The ranch is comfortably owner rated at 90 cow/calf pairs, plus replacement heifer and bulls. Depending on the year, the owners have put up hay on some of the meadows. The ranch is watered with 7 wells (two of which are solar – one on each parcel), one spring and 2 reservoirs. (Most of the wells have a storage tank.) About 1 ½ mile of Painted Robe Creek runs through the eastern portion of the ranch, providing good habitat and year round water in most years. The ranch headquarters is on the western portion and consists of a well maintained and kept, 2-story 4 bedroom 21/2 bath stick-built house. It has numerous other barns, including a well-maintained classic barn that was built in 1915; plus, sheds, outbuildings, corrals, pens and livestock handling facilities, all of which are in good working order. There is a small set of corrals with a chute and handling facilities located on the Painted Robe parcel, as well as a recently built one room cabin and outhouse, used mainly for owner enjoyment and recreational purposes. Hoyt Ranch is located in deer & elk hunting district 590 and antelope hunting district 576 of Montana Fish & Wildlife Region 5. For big game, the ranch is mainly home to deer and antelope; however, elk tend to use the Painted Robe Creek parcel of the ranch later in the year. Upland bird enthusiasts will find sharp tailed grouse and Hungarian partridges throughout the ranch. Plus, each of the parcels is benefited by bordering a full section of State Land. The nearby communities of Lavina and Broadview each have K-12 Schools and other basic services. Larger towns and cities like Billings are only about 40 minutes away.

  • Deeded Acres ±923

If you’re looking for a small ranching operation in an area that is a bit off the beaten path, with end of the road privacy, and where prices are less influenced by mountain views and trout, and more about productivity and value, we invite you to look at the Home Unit of the Hoyt Ranch.

Has a good mix of improved and native pasture as well and is where the home and other farm buildings are located.

Painted Robe Creek Parcel

  • Price – $1,960,000
  • Deeded Acres ±1,120

If you’re looking for a small, end of the road property that has a good mix of recreational amenities and agricultural benefits, in an area where prices are less influenced by mountain views and trout, and more about productivity and value, we invite you to look at the Painted Robe Creek Unit of the Hoyt Ranch. Comprising about 1,120 deeded acres, the Painted Robe Creek Unit is part of a larger ranch operation that is being offered as a stand alone sale. This scenic and well balanced small cattle, farming and recreational property is located about 4 miles southeast of Lavina, MT in a region known for good grass, small grain farming and oil seed production, as well as upland bird and big game hunting. It is fenced into 4 pastures, nicely sodded in native and improved grasses, but also has about 200 acres of timber. The Painted Robe Creek, which is a tributary of the Musselshell River, runs through the property for about 1 ½ miles and has live water in it most years as well as a bridge for good vehicle access. The creek provides a lot of habitat for wildlife and the creek bottom area is quite scenic. Tucked away in the timber is a small, but recently built one room cabin with no utilities or running water that the current owners enjoy using for hunting, relaxation or for recreational purposes. Located in deer & elk hunting district 590 and antelope hunting district 576 of Montana Fish & Wildlife Region 5. Elk will use the property more late in the season and deer and antelope can be found year round. Upland bird enthusiasts will find sharp tailed grouse and Hungarian partridges throughout the sagebrush and grass portions of the ranch. Plus, this property is benefited by bordering a full section of State Land. The property is easily accessed from the SE Bench Co. Road and has a small set of working pens, several sheds, 3-steel granaries, two wells (one main-line powered with storage at the corrals and one solar well with storage).
