The Keating Valley Ranch is one of those highly productive ranches and you now have the opportunity to purchase this beautiful ranch. Located in the heart of the Keating Valley, just east of Baker City, the Keating Valley Ranch straddles the Powder River and works its way into the foothills of the Eagle Cap Mountains.
The ranch encompasses over 1,300 deeded acres comprised of approximately 309 irrigated acres with the balance of the ranch range land pastures used for summer grazing. An ‘out the gate’ BLM permit for 490 A-U-M’s (outlined in yellow on map) allows for cattle to be turned out while the meadows produce grass for winter feed.
Irrigation water is provided via the Erwin & Perkins Ditches, fed from the Powder River. Water is applied using flood irrigation and three wheel lines. Thief Valley Reservoir allows the irrigation district to store water for summer irrigation, which typically lasts until the end of August or early September, according to the owners.
Improvements on the ranch are first class and well maintained. The home features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a commanding view of the Elkhorn Mountains to the west. The hay shed is a 60’ x 100’, the calving shed is a 45’ x 75’ clear span, insulated steel building with roll up doors at each end, and features an office and unfinished bunk room. The working corrals are efficient and practical, featuring a covered alley way, hydraulic chute, and small chute office.
The ranch is located approximately 18 miles east of historic Baker City, known for its strong agricultural community and warm small-town culture. The vibrant downtown has retained the architectural features from the city’s historic past and features numerous dining options, an excellent variety of local shops, multiple museums, and other cultural attractions.
