5A Ranch


Description:    This combination grazing/recreation property is truly an end of the road ranch and is possibly on of the most remote ranches in Osage County.  The ranch contains a mosaic mix of Tallgrass Prairie, Cross Timbers vegetation and about 100 acres of bottom land.  Much of the bottom that was previously cultivated, and even irrigated, now has an introduced forage base. There is almost 250 ft of elevation change as the terrain varies from 800 ft. to 1040 ft.  The limestone and sandstone soils support the grasses, legumes, a varied mix of upland and bottomland timber and woody species.  The nearly 1 and ¾ miles of Pond Creek truly enhance the unique qualities of the ranch.  The adjoining large ranches, Western Wall Primitive Hunting Unit and the location northeast of the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve serve to protect the integrity of the property and contribute to the wildlife diversity and quality.

 Acreage:          The 1392 acres, more or less, are located in Osage County and sell as surface only.

 Location:

  • 6 mi from historic Elgin, KS
  • 13 miles from Sedan, KS
  • 105 miles from Wichita, KS
  • 26 miles from Pawhuska, OK
  • 35 miles from Bartlesville, OK
  • 80 miles from Tulsa, OK

Improvements:           The ranch has had approximately 2.5 miles of new fence built within the last 3 years. Additionally, 2 new ponds were constructed and 5 were rebuilt and cleaned out to provide ample livestock water and allow for rotational grazing throughout the ranch. There is a small functional set of steel pens with load-out. The roads and creek crossing have been improved to allow for semi access to the pens.

Soils/Topography/Forage:             The Tallgrass Prairie forages are evident on the limestone soils of the prairie, sandstone base of the Cross Timbers and the bottom land soils of Pond Creek and it’s tributaries.

The prairie grasses are represented by Big bluestem, Indian grass, Switchgrass and Little bluestem to name just a few of the major Tallgrass species.  Prairie Acacia, Leadplant, Showy partridgepea, Roundhead lespedeza and Slender lespedeza are just a few of the represented legumes. Maximilian and Ashy sunflower, Prairie coneflower, Pitcher sage, and several Gayfeather varieties are representative of the native forbs.

The Cross Timbers contains these same species and is noted for the sandstone based soil. These soils sustain the post oak, blackjack oak and hickory of the upland as well as sand plum, Mexican plum and redbud.

The Pond Creek bottom and its tributaries will sustain red oak, bur oak, chinquapin oak, pecan, black walnut, sycamore and river birch for just a partial list of species represented.

These plants, and many others, are important ingredients of the diverse ecological balance of the Tallgrass Prairie and Cross Timbers ecosystems.  They contribute to the livestock grazing and wildlife habitat of this area of Oklahoma and Southern Kansas.

The native grass pastures are predominately Niotaze and Bigheart soils which are capable of producing 3,000 to 4,000 pounds of forage per year.  The former cultivated land, which is currently in Bermuda based pastures, is predominately Verdigris silt loam, a high production soil that is well suited for introduced winter and summer forages.

Wildlife and Recreation:             The ability to own a remote piece of this unique Osage County ecosystem and to explore areas that are much the same as they were in the 1870s, when the Osage Tribe moved to Osage County from Kansas, is the ultimate recreation for many. The South Fork of Pond Creek and the main channel of Pond Creek come together creating the head of Pond Creek on this ranch. The resulting topography and wildlife habitat within this riparian area is second to none. Mature deer in the 150″ range have commonly been seen, in addition to a large turkey and feral hog population.

Deer, turkey, quail, hogs and other game animals such as squirrel, raccoon, coyote and rabbit are abundant. The varied non-game population will include eagles, prairie chicken, and other woodland and prairie bird species.  Red and Grey fox, bobcats, and even an occasional cougar may be spotted in this habitat.

This northern area of Osage County, near the Kansas border, has consistently produced outstanding deer and turkey hunting. The 5A Ranch has undergone intensive wildlife management the last several years including selective harvesting of mature deer only, improving buck to doe ratios and habitat management.

Water:             It is always beneficial when one of the strongest values of a property is the surface and potential well water.  There is a well that was located at the former home and an additional well in the bottom that was at one time utilized to irrigate the cultivated land.  Osage County has an annual rainfall of approximately 38”.  Statistically, November through February is the driest period of the year.

Pond Creek is spring fed, as are the tributaries, and has traditionally provided much of the stock water for the ranch.  Seven ponds also provide water for the livestock and wildlife.   There are numerous locations for additional water impoundments.

Additional Information:              This property obviously will not appeal to those that demand the convenience of urban living but should interest those that appreciate the freedom and peace that is offered by stepping back from the hectic lifestyle that most live.  These same people will value the remote location and  ecosystem that this property represents.

The recently constructed cross fencing allows for more intensive management of the native and introduced forage base allowing for better utilization of the forage and ease of moving livestock.

Compared to many other states, the advalorem taxes are relatively low.  The current taxes are are approximately $1.25/ acre per annum.

Pawhuska 18 mi
Bartlesville 30 mi
Tulsa 1.5 hrs

Wildlife/ Recreation:

The ranch and the area have been managed for several years by the owner for quality wildlife habitat. A concerted effort has been made to develop trophy deer and balance the buck/doe ratio. Considerable progress has been made to enhance the quail population to the point that meaningful hunting has been available the last few years. The quality fishing opportunities found on the lake and the several ponds may be the ingredient that draws many people to this diverse Osage County landscape.

Just as important as the hunting opportunities, for tracts such as this, is the ability to enjoy the
non-game animals and birds that are prevalent in this diverse ecosystem. A quiet sunset or sunrise on the lake may be the intrinsic value that makes this property so unique.

Improvements:

A 40′ X 50′ insulated shop with 15′ lean includes cabin complete with heat/air,full kitchen, bath and bedroom that sleeps 6. Additionally, 4 fenced and 2 unfenced food plots add to the recreational value.

Additional Information:

Although the total acreage of native grass is not large enough to sustain a large livestock operation, it does offer a quality forage base that currently provides summer grazing for stocker cattle. More so than many recreation properties, the grazing income is sufficient to contribute financially to the upkeep of the ranch.

The varied terrain lends itself to horseback riding, hiking, bike and ATV trails. The relatively short distance from Tulsa and Bartlesville is a value that should continue to grow in the coming years.

The property is located in an area that qualifies for accelerated federal income tax depreciation on qualifying ranch improvements. This is due to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 that targets former Indian Lands in Oklahoma. This act has been extended through 2011 and provides a shorter recovery period of approximately 40% for most non-residential depreciable property.We are currently waiting to see if it will be extended through 2012.

Advalorem taxes in Oklahoma are generally favorable when compared to other areas of the country.

Water:

The property includes 4 stocked fishing/ livestock ponds, as well as, a 6.5 acre private lake. The lake was stocked in 2007 with Florida Highbred Bass, Black Crappie and bluegill.Bass are currently weighing 6 + lbs and crappie up to 2 lbs. The water well is located next to the cabin/ shop.

McWilliams Angus Ranch

SOLD

Muskogee County Property Description:

This approximately 3,547 +/- acre property is a well located Oklahoma ranch for sale that has excellent highway accessibility and visibility. The rolling topography, well constructed fences and productive soils help present this ranch in a manner that draws the admiration of ranchers and stockmen and provides a positive feeling for the many non-agriculturists that pass the property daily on Highway 16, 62 and 64.

3,547 +/- acres of the ranch are contiguous, separated only by Highway and County Roads. 246 +/- acres are located a short distance southwest of the main acreage and has been removed from the listing at this time.

stock tanks. The homes are serviced by rural water districts and utilities are available through
out the ranch.

FORAGE AND SOILS:

The forage base is primarily Bermuda, Fescue, annual ryegrass and legumes. Many of the pastures are located on former corn or row crop land that has been expanded through land clearing and stabilization with Bermuda grass.
The McWilliams have had more than 1,000 animal units on the ranch but it is felt that currently 800 animal units year round would be a realistic estimate of the carrying capacity. This will be tempered by the management intensity and desires of the operator and would be a decision the new owner should take after his own discovery.

The ranch is located next to an Oklahoma State University research station that is currently running a small cow herd using 2.5 acres/cow/calf unit with no purchased feed. The stockpiled forage and surplus forage, cut as hay, provide all the protein needs through the winter.
