Some people just do a better job of taking care of their property than others. They go the extra mile to take care of the land and they do it consistently, year in and year out. That's what we see when we visit Stockmans Ranch located just three miles west of Allen, OK on a paved county road. Just a short 90-minute drive from OKC or 2 1/2 hour drive from Dallas, this 240-acre ranch is easily accessible from either metro area.
The property has a very gentle slope from southwest to northeast. There are four main drainages on the property and each one has at least one nice pond in it. The largest of the ponds is over 3 acres in size. They are stocked with bass and crappie and look like a lot of fun just waiting to happen. In addition to fishing, they are ideally located to capture water for livestock and act as a consistent water source even in significant droughts. In addition to the ponds, the draws also have a nice growth of mature hardwoods that serve as bedding areas and travel corridors for whitetail deer.
The main appeal of the ranch is its productivity. With almost the entire ranch being open and 80 percent of the soils classified as Class 2 or 3, this ranch will can be stocked heavy and still produce part of the hay that you need given normal rainfall amounts. Part of the reason for this rate is that the pastures have been consistently sprayed and fertilized for many years. This has created pastures with a dense growth of bermuda grass that has the nutrients needed to thrive.
In addition to good soils, and consistent management, the ranch is smartly cross fenced to allow for easy rotation and has a central catch pen and corrals that can be used to work cattle. The pen is also large enough that first calf heifers can be kept up and watched during calving season. Each of the four main pastures and the small trap at the north end of the property have ponds for watering the cattle.
The north end of the ranch has frontage on a paved county road and the southern end has frontage on a nicely maintained gravel road. There are entries on both ends that allow you to easily get where you want to go no matter what the weather is like.
For those looking to build a nice home, there is electricity all along the south boundary of the property and rural water along the road frontage. There is a particularly nice place to build in the center of the property near the largest of the ponds.
