Land Description


Spreading out across 4,353 - deeded acres

of lush grasslands, rain fed arroyos, and towering

rock mesas is one of the finest gentleman’s cattle

and trophy elk ranches in the southwest. Rancho Landavazo is situated in the cool highlands

of western New Mexico where the soils, grasses

and rainfall combine to produce ideal grazing

conditions as well as superb wildlife habitat.

The treed canyons and grassy meadows provide prime

habitat for the resident trophy elk, mule deer,

antelope and wild turkey. The large block of private lands

provide an outstanding investment with owner privacy and trophy big game

hunting opportunities. The owners have recently drilled a new highly producing well. There are now two good solar powered wells to supplement and fill 2 stock tanks and irrigate a newly planted feed plot. The feed lotencompasses approximately 13+ acres and has been planted with a variety of clovers, grasses and alfalfa.

soils cover the entire ranch.
