Located in the lush Wolf Mountains of south-central Montana (between Sheridan, Wyoming and Billings, Montana), the Thompson Creek Ranch is a functioning cattle ranch that takes in 2500-3000 yearlings every summer, with about 75 cows that are run the full year and 200-600 calves that winter on the meadow.
This ranch spreads across some of the prettiest country in the state, with rich, deep loam soils and a climate that contributes to some of the best lush Montana grasses, chokecherries, wild plums, pine trees and aspen groves.
The property is located on the Crow Indian Reservation, with about 7,083 deeded acres and 5,000 leased acres. Ranch owners at Thompson Creek have had stable leases since 1944 when the family bought the ranch, and they have always maintained positive, productive relationship with the Crow Tribe and neighboring landowners.
With numerous springs, 4 creeks that originate on the ranch, and 16-22 inches of annual precipitation, there is no need for irrigation.
The property is located between Billings, MT and Sheridan, WY. It is surrounded on 3 sides by state highways and is easily accessed from all directions. Highway 90 runs north and south on the west side of the property, Highway 314 runs north and south on the east side, and Highway 212 runs east and west to the north of the property.
