Listing ID: Butte #2280
The property is currently ~36 acres of unimproved native pasture, with a gentle roll, but basically flat. The area is a little rocky with smaller rocks. There are no trees on the property right now. The property hasn’t been grazed in at least a decade, and I’m hoping to get some livestock grazing to start improving the land. Ideally, there would be sustainability in mind with some kind of rotational grazing model to help improve the pasture and soil. I hope that we can eventually get perimeter fencing up, and possibly slowly start adding irrigation to the pasture and over-seed to improve species composition and pasture nutrition.
