The ranch also owns about 312 shares of supplemental water in Healy Reservoir, so there is an abundance of water for all its irrigation needs.
Currently, the owners are irrigating about 360-acres under seven center pivots and another 40 acres are being flood irrigated. There are about 219 acres that are sub-irrigated and 300± acres are bottomland. The fertility of the land combined with early priority water rights provides excellent productivity and is easily capable of producing 1,400± tons of alfalfa hay annually.

Under current operations the owners run their cows on leased pasture during the summer months and then bring them home for the rest of the year. The ranch comes with a full set of livestock feed pens, working facilities, sheds, a chute, alley and scales.

For real life action, the prime riparian areas and upland habitat provides for exceptional game bird and waterfowl hunting.

The ranch also borders about 10,000 acres of State land that can legally be accessed for hunting or recreation from the ranch.

The C Bar B Ranch, located in the heart of the Clear Creek Valley below the Healy Dam and a few miles from the confluence with Piney Creek, is about 10 minutes northeast of Buffalo, WY on paved US Highway 16, or about 40 minutes from Sheridan, WY
This is another watershed that’s part of the great land “where the rivers run north” that has been so coveted for over 130 years of ranching, but even prior to that when it was inhabited by the Plains Indians. The soils and the grasses have always provided excellent feed for the livestock and wildlife, but additionally, it’s the overall combination of water, soils and climate that has made this area such a great place to live.
The historic western town of Buffalo is scenic and quaint at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains. It has all the essential services one might need, such as a modern hospital and clinic, physical therapy, grocery stores, a fantastic sporting goods store, banks, ag supply stores, a movie theatre, fine dining, and an excellent public school system. Buffalo also has Johnson County Airport, which is capable of handling small jets.
The charming community of Sheridan, WY has most amenities and conveniences, including jet service and a commercial airport as well as world-class golf, dining, medical facilities, first-rate schools (rated among the best in the nation) and shopping in Sheridan’s historic downtown. Furthermore, and more distinctly, Sheridan is home to the annual WYO Rodeo, world-class polo, Brinton Museum, Don King Days and many other uniquely “Sheridan” lifestyle events that are sure to please everyone. For further shopping and air service, one can find it in Billings, or Casper, each about two hours away. Furthermore, the Big Horn Mountains are only 30 minutes to the west, where you’ll find all the outdoor recreation you can imagine.

The climate around the Buffalo/Sheridan area is one of the most “live-able” climates in Wyoming with pleasant summers and moderate winters. Perhaps it’s the proximity to the 45th parallel along with the positioning next to the Big Horn Mountains and the lower altitude, but the Big Horn Mountain foothills have always been one of the most desirable places to live for those who have experienced it. Whatever the reason, it’s hard to argue that this area doesn’t have the greenest and most pleasant climates.
