Well they counter offered yesterday and we accepted it today. Now the fun begins......
I never seem to be able to get pictures to post here but there is a way to view it for those who want to see it. Google Whitney Land Co Pendleton, Oregon. On their website click on the ranch tab. Scroll down past all the multi million dollar ranches To "Durkee Ranch". That is it.

Congrats! That's a beautiful location, I hope it works out well for you. What's it got for acres if you don't mind? I couldn't find it on there.

There is 1,205 acres of deeded land, 67 of those are irrigated. There are also two BLM permits that total 65 head April through November.

The irrigated ground will do a cow per acre April - October with some management. The rangeland will be about one cow for 40 acres. It can do better with some improvements in watering system to get the cows to disperse better. That mountain in the first picture has some under utilized grazing simply because of the distance to water.

Rancher I have been helping here says that I am going from his rich friend to a poor rancher like the rest of them. I got them to agree to a lot less than their asking price ;-) but it is still a lot of money.

How many head are you planning on running there? Do you think it would run 60-70 pairs and hay for them all winter? How long is the winter season there?
