The Lazy EJ Ranch is an excellent cattle ranch located in one of the finest grass belts of New Mexico. The current owner runs a cow calf operation on the ranch and has historically weaned 580-610 pound steers. This ranch is well watered with shallow wells and quality water. The fences are in pretty good shape and headquarters has a nice set of functional pipe corrals with a scale. At $453/deeded acre, this ranch will make a super buy and a very functional cattle operation. Sunshine prevails over 280 days a year, and the region receives over 16″ of annual rainfall.
