The property is divided into numerous pastures for rotation and livestock management. Typically the fields may be grazed into January before feeding hay starts. The last of the three hay cuttings is in late September and grass stops growing in late October. The ground thaws out in March and its good to get off the fields by April. The ranch has plenty of dry ground to move livestock onto in the spring. Stock water is located throughout the property for convenience. The irrigation water comes on or before April 15thand green grass in the dry rough ground starts in late March. The property is a great place to calve cows and has a calving barn and pens for heifers. Cows can also be drylotted in the feed pens which can also be used to background calves or grow feeder cattle. First hay cutting can be in May.
The property also has several features making the Yowell Ranch an even more attractive purchase:

This diverse of a property is hard to come by these days. Very mild climate with the best possible water rights and good soils. Delta County is still an agricultural area but is not so remote as to not have conveniences. Nice creek frontage, wooded areas, pond, water fall, springs, BLM boundary, quite ‘end of the road’ location, and improvements you can put right to work.
