The Chavez Mountain Ranch in Union County, with over 26,000 acres of abundant pasture, is considered one of the prime ranches in New Mexico due to its quality grassland as well as a multi-source pipelined water system (windmill, electric, and solar wells). Part of the historic Otto Ranch, the Cimarron Rt of the Santa Fe Trail cuts through this vast property. Fully fenced, the Ranch's rolling grasslands encompass Chavez Mountain and are cut by the Gallegos and Cedar Creeks. 101 acre feet per annum of transferrable water rights. Elk, Pronghorn, and Mule Deer call the Ranch home. Due to the mix of windmills, electric and solar wells, a 9,000 gal. storage tank, an extensive pipeline system, 2 creeks and a live spring, every pasture on the property has at least 2 sources of water. Next to the home, you'll find an excellent set of pens with 3 sub-pens, alley, loading chutes, and certified scales inside a scale house, as well as a garage/shop with a 30 amp RV plug. The home is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath triple wide with new concrete skirting and upgraded windows. Over the past 24 years, incoming yearlings have experienced a gain of 300 lbs, with gains of 350 lbs achieved at times. Gramma grass provides perfect grazing for yearlings & summer cows/calves in the northern 1/2, while the southern 1/2 of the Ranch contains needle grass and a wider variety particularly good for winter grazing for cow/calf pairs. Potential for conservation or hemp production exists.
