Big West Ranch is situated in one contiguous block, 20 miles east-to-west and 10 miles north-to-south at the southern tip of the Bighorn Mountains. The ranch has a variety of topography from mountain foothills and grass covered plateaus to canyons, buttes and breaks – providing year-round grazing and outstanding natural protection. Cottonwood Creek, Three Buttes Creek, and Indian Creek provide intermittent water flow. Several natural flowing springs, strategic wells, BLM reservoirs and the ranch’s own seasonal 20-acre Lester Lake provide additional water resources throughout the ranch. Big West Ranch is a very efficient operating ranch due to the grazing allotment having no on/off dates, allowing cattle movement and pasture rotation year-round at the owner’s discretion. Costs associated with the grazing allotment and leases are approximately thirty thousand dollars per year.
