small area along state highway 39. These
wells are maintained by and provide water to the Village of Mosquero,
which lies 5 miles to the south. The
wells do not provide any income to the ranch.
CARRYING CAPACITY:The Solano Ranch historically has been used for cow/calf production. Most years, an owner can conservatively stock the ranch with about 75 to 80 cows plus bulls. It would also work for 225 to 245 yearlings during the growing season most years with normal precipitation.
There is an older partial set of wooden corrals located on
the west side of the ranch, not far from the highway.
The ranch lies east to west and is crossed fenced into 5
pastures and two CRP fields. Cross
fencing is from good to poor and boundary fences are from excellent to
poor. There is no home on the property.
The Solano Ranch has huntable numbers of antelope most years;
and a new owner should normally receive at least 2 to 3 land owner
permits. The number of
permits allotted depends on the results of the antelope survey conducted
by the New Mexico Game & Fish Department each spring.

The Solano Ranch is not a fancy, well improved ranch property, but
it is an honest (you can see what you are getting) short grass cattle
operation in some of the strongest grass country in the world.
It is well located on a state highway with an entrance that can be
locked. The ranch has a
couple of CRP checks coming, and who knows, it might go back in the
program when the CRP contract expires in September of 2012.
The ranch is priced to reflect its need for some fence and
work – you hardly ever see a ranch priced below $300 per acre in the Roy
area. If you are looking for
a no frills, good grass ranch, take the time to look at this excellent buy
known as the Solano Ranch in northeast New Mexico.
