Offered for the first time in 75 years, the historic Golder Ranch on Rosebud Creek is situated along productive Rosebud Creek. It provides 12,942± deeded acres, 1,274± acres of state lease, and 465± acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) permit of untouched, majestic landscape featuring spring-fed deep draws, cliffs, and beautiful rock outcroppings with native prairie interspersed. Renowned for their excellent conservation efforts and stewardship, the Golder Ranch features outstanding grasslands for livestock grazing in addition to excellent cover for elk, mule deer, antelope, turkeys, and upland game birds. The forested draws and the picturesque rock formations add to the uniqueness and diversity of the property, with Rosebud Creek, Cottonwood Creek, and Slough Grass Creek drainages meandering through the expansive ranch.
An original 1900s two-story ranch house and two-story barn, two shops, a newer pole barn, working corrals, and other miscellaneous support buildings comprise the improvements. Numerous solar wells, springs, and ponds can be found throughout the ranch, and sub-irrigated meadows have been developed for hay production, with additional meadows available for further development.
Remnants of earth’s first visitors have been discovered in the area and on this ranch, providing a glimpse of past events. Today, the Golder Ranch remains a working cattle ranch and is virtually the same as years ago, making it one of the best Montana ranches on the market.
