Buffalo Bluff Ranch is a working cattle ranch which is thoughtfully laid-out and managed to produce both quality grazing land and superb wildlife habitat. The acreage has impressive elevation changes, with a steep 200-foot bluff separating the northern plateau from the southern grassland. The south portion of the ranch consists of four main cross-fenced pastures, with each having a metal loafing barn to shelter animals in extreme weather. All the fences were built to last a lifetime with close T-posts and enough wires to keep cattle and calves in, with most being six-strand barbed wire. This ranch has a sufficient amount of surface water to support the livestock operation while also attracting hordes of waterfowl; the most substantial pond measures five acres. Numerous wet weather waterways are traversing the property creating dense pockets of tree cover frequented by whitetail deer and other game.
"Ranch Headquarters" includes a remodeled three bedroom, one bathroom home, with an open concept kitchen-dining-living room. Water is pumped to the house from a pond at the bottom of the bluff which survived the past droughts. Located near the working pens and arena lies a one bedroom bunkhouse with kitchen, living quarters, and an attached office suitable for your guests or ranch foreman. The cattle facilities include multiple barns with stalls, large round pen, covered arena as well as a working cattle scale. If you are in the market for an efficient livestock producing ranch that offers excellent hunting opportunities, then Buffalo Bluff Ranch deserves a look.
Note on Production: This area of Palo Pinto County has been producing oil and gas for many decades; several of the wells in this field are inactive, plugged and abandoned, while others are still active. Most of the active wells are located on the property boundaries and have dedicated roads for access. The oil production company does not use the main entrance to the ranch or the main rock road leading to the ranching facilities.
