MILK RIVER COMBO FARM
Sold! - Montana
By combining agricultural production with legitimate recreational opportunities, this diversified 370+/- deeded acre farm/ranch features some of everything. This unique property includes 228 acres of irrigated ground with ample water supplied by the Bureau of Reclamation’s Irrigation District, plus another 40 acres of sub-irrigated grass lands, and because of its proximity to the Milk River, it naturally attracts Whitetail Deer, Pheasant, and Waterfowl. Historically, seeded crops include alfalfa, alfalfa and grass mix, and corn, as well as other forage crops. The remaining acreage is prime, diversified habitat that is interspersed among the irrigated ground and includes grass and alfalfa mixed waterways, much of which is sub-irrigated and hayed. These grass waterways are part of an incredible 2 ½ miles of meandering Oxbow Sloughs and drains consisting of Cattails, Buffalo Berry, Ash trees, Chokecherry, Shrubs, and Willows, all providing habitat for Pheasants and Whitetails. Finally, all the excess irrigation water that drains into these long sloughs slowly flows through the property until it is eventually captured as it empties into a Large Wetland that was once the original riverbed of the Old Milk River. This Riverbed Slough is over a half mile long, is surrounded by Mature Cottonwood, Ash and Chokecherry Trees, encompasses nearly 40 acres, and provides excellent habitat for Waterfowl. Currently operated for hay and winter feed production, this property has been used as a horse ranch, and would make a great irrigated pasture operation. Located 8 miles northwest of Glasgow with highway access, it includes a modest, single floor, 3 bedroom bunkhouse that would make a great hunting cabin. There is an additional site with power and water making an additional home site possible.
Price reduced to $498,000.
The lower sloughs and waterways that provide the cover, water, and habitat for birds are also used by deer as they travel to and from the alfalfa fields on this property and
surrounding areas to feed. Alternating terrain with trees and brush provide shade in summer and shelter in winter for cattle.
