Approximately 123,000 Acres on the Sun River near Augusta, Montana

The Broken O Ranch, one of the Rocky Mountain West’s most grand and significant ranches, encompassing almost 123,000 acres of deeded and leased land is located 35 miles west of Great Falls, Montana and east of the stunning Rocky Mountain Front.  Over 20 miles of the beautiful Sun River flow through the heart of the Ranch, offering prime irrigation benefits as well as amazing recreational assets. The Broken O Ranch is being offered for sale at $132,500,000 including cattle, machinery and equipment.

Under the vision of William E. and Desiree B. Moore, founders of the Kelly-Moore Paint Company, the past twenty years were spent assembling this massive land holding.  Spread across Lewis & Clark, Cascade and Teton Counties, the Ranch was carefully shaped and improved by the Moores to create this productive enterprise.

This expansive cattle-and-farming operation is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing global demand for beef and grains.  The Broken O Ranch currently carries 3,500 mother cows plus 800 replacement heifers and 200 range bulls.  The Ranch contains Montana’s largest block of irrigated land – 13,000 acres – historically averaging about 25,000 tons of alfalfa hay and 700,000 bushels of small grain crops annually.

Besides the Broken O’s tremendous agricultural production, it offers outstanding recreational amenities.  The Sun River corridor provides exceptional brown and rainbow trout fishing, antelope, whitetail and mule deer hunting, as well as extensive upland game bird and waterfowl populations.

“The Broken O Ranch is one of the Rocky Mountain West’s most significant holdings to come on the Western real estate market in decades.  The scale, commodity production, recreational amenities and overall diversity make it one of the most unique offerings we have ever represented,” according to Managing Broker Mike Swan of Bates Sanders Swan Land Company in Bozeman, Montana.
