The Butterfield Farm & Livestock, located in Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin, is an ideal destination for cattle and agricultural production. This region offers an abundance of fertile soil, ample water supply, and an optimal climate for ranching and farming activities.

Nestled in the heart of the Basin, the Butterfield Farm & Livestock relies on Cottonwood Creek as its lifeline. This creek is a vital irrigation water source for approximately 300± acres of pivot and flood irrigated land. Like other creek bottoms in Wyoming, Cottonwood Creek plays a crucial role in the ranch’s wildlife habitat, hosting whitetail, mule deer, and plentiful antelope.

The ranch is well-equipped to accommodate both sheep and cattle, boasting various working facilities such as a shop, barn, equipment barn, loafing sheds, and a corral system. Overlooking Cottonwood Creek and nestled under a canopy of mature trees, the four-bedroom, two-bath ranch-style home adds to the ranch’s charm.

With its productive irrigated land and an additional 1,897± acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lease acres, the Butterfield Farm & Livestock presents numerous possibilities and opportunities. The irrigated land has proven successful not only for hay production but also for cultivating oats, barley, corn, and sorghum in the past.

The diversity of the Butterfield Farm & Livestock offers a wide range of opportunities. The ranch could easily support an intensive grazing program with its productive hay meadows or serve as a hay base for a larger operation. Alternatively, it could continue as a small family ranch, providing a cherished way of life for its new owners.
