Bar XV Ranch- Major Price Reduction. Sold!

The Bar XV Ranch in Bancroft, Idaho is a perfect set-up for a small cattle operation of anywhere up to 100 pairs. With four wheel lines that irrigate 56 acres, enough hay and feed can be stored to have a self-sufficient operation and keep your cattle on the property year round. Up to 200 tons of hay have been stored in the hay shed and the stored hay is usually used for feed from November to mid-April.

The water on this property is what truly sets it apart from other properties. First of all, water rights come from the State of Idaho with enough for 90 acres from the Portneuf River. Two wells and multiple springs are found on the property. One well is culinary and the irrigation well has also been certified to be culinary quality. The irrigation well is 160 ft deep whereas the water table only varies from 28 ft to 32 ft below the pump. Due to this high water table, it is not uncommon to have extra springs come and go with the seasons. This creates a sub-irrigated situation for your nearly 200 acres of pasture, and no worries about fences because this property is fully fenced. As an side note, 3-phase power is already on the property.

For raising your yearlings, two grazing associations are in the valley. If you wish to do so, you can contract out to have your yearlings on mountain ground or irrigated pasture.

The Bar XV Ranch sits to the north and west of Bancroft Idaho and also within close reach of the Famous Lava Hot Springs. Just to the North is Chesterfield Idaho. It is in this valley, and in particular Chesterfield, where the Old Oregon Trail passed through. The residents would sell goods to travelers that would most likely need supplies as they neared Fort Hall.

Other unique opportunities of this property provide for equestrian use, waterfowl and upland bird hunting in the area, and great fishing in the nearby Chesterfield Reservoir for hatchery-bred rainbow trout.
