Rocking G Ranch
The Rocking G Ranch represents a rare opportunity to purchase a turn-key cattle and hay operation in Hughes County Oklahoma. The ranch is conveniently located an easy 100 miles from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City and 160 miles from Dallas. The ranch lays approximately 1 mile west of a major highway, making for quick and easy access to good paved roads and Interstate 40.
This ranch has served multiple generations of the same family for over 50 years. As true stewards of the land, the family put much emphasis into improving and maintaining the 155 acre ranch. Spraying, fertilizing and cross fencing with an intensive rotational grazing program, allowed the ranch to support 75cow-calf pairs in its prime. Improved Bermuda grass is prevalent on the ranch and is ideal for long season grazing. Water is abundant and easily accessible with several ponds scattered throughout as well as service from the rural water system. In its most recent years, hay production has been the focus. High producing hay meadows have become the main source of income for the ranch.
Sitting atop a hill, surrounded by the peaceful lush pastures of the ranch, is the main home. The single level, brick-ranch style home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and features a large master suite with a custom designed walk-in closet, 2 nice size bedrooms, as well as a large office and den area. The kitchen is mostly open with room for a dining table and ample built in storage. A covered outdoor space that could double as a great outdoor living and entertaining area is just behind the kitchen and around the corner from the covered hot tub and above ground pool.
The main shop/barn, located just behind the main home, is equipped with propane heat and two large roll up doors, making it ideal for year round use. It also has a small office and tack room. Two covered areas running the full length of the shop are great for storing equipment and hay. In addition, a small second home on the ranch would be ideal as a rental property or as a house for a ranch hand. The main ranch is priced at $500,000.
We have also listed a second 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, just across the driveway from the main home of the Rocking G Ranch for $150,000. This home started its life as a mobile home but has been added on to multiple times and now has a brick veneer around the entire outside of the structure. It sits on a 20 acre parcel that has road frontage and is surrounded by the body of the 155 acre main ranch. It has a functional barn and set of catch pens that could serve as weaning or calving pens, hay storage or as a smaller turnout for horses. Either ranch can be purchased separately from the other, but we think they make a really nice package for a larger family that needs more than one nice home.
The ranch is thoughtfully designed and ready to work. Perimeter fencing and some cross fencing is 5 strand barbed-wire and the remaining cross fencing is temporary electric fence, that the owners used in their rotational grazing program. There are 2 sets of working pens on the ranch with all gates and chutes included in the sale and ready for cattle. They are strategically placed in 2 different areas of the ranch for easy access and use in all pastures. A large overhead feed bin as well as a bulk water quick fill tank, used for spraying, will be an asset to the future owners and make the transition to feeding cattle and maintaining pastures a breeze. This ranch is the ideal size for someone looking to grow or start a cattle operation. All the hard work has been done. No major improvements need to be made before the cattle are tuned out, making it ideal for the rancher looking to use the property immediately and take advantage of the abundant forage on the property.
Recreation is not left out on this ranch. Small wooded draws on the South side of the ranch as well as scattered ponds make for excellent hunting and fishing. The kids grew up hunting, fishing and enjoying the fun of the great outdoors on the ranch.
The overwhelming feeling of tranquility and stillness on the ranch is something you cant find inside city limits. Peaceful pastures swaying in the breeze and fresh air as well as the quiet sound of the livestock calling in the distance make Rocking G Ranch an ideal place to enjoy the slower pace of a tranquil rural lifestyle.
