A historic Eastern Oregon ranch, The Lamb Ranch, encompassing 7,814± deeded acres, plus adjoining Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grazing leases, has historically supported a cattle herd of 450± pair year-round. The ranch’s reservoir, permitted for the storage of 2,405 acre-feet, has helped provide a reliable source of irrigation water for the ranch’s irrigated meadows, essential for winter feed production and aftermath grazing.

Nestled beneath the enormous shade trees, which undoubtedly date to the early days of the Old West, though added onto and remodeled over the years, the 1890s ranch house still stands. Additional improvements include corrals, livestock scales, a shop, a power building, and additional housing. Located 7± miles off the highway, the gated entrance to the ranch ensures privacy, while the modernized hydro and solar system, aided by the backup generator, provides ranch electricity.

For the hunter, the ranch provides good habitat for elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, upland gamebirds, waterfowl, and a myriad of other wildlife species common to the area. Fish for trout, largemouth bass, and smallmouth bass right in your own reservoir! Don’t miss this opportunity!
