Located 5 miles Southwest of Stockton, Missouri, lies this incredibly well kept cattle ranch known as the Good Shepherd Ranch. This newly listed farm covers 195.5 +/- surveyed acres that is fenced and cross fenced into 30 separate pastures with water supplied to each paddock. The property also features a gorgeous home that is just under 2,100 square feet and overlooks a beautiful 5 acre lake. This working cattle ranch is set up and ready to go.
The Good Shepard Ranch has been meticulously set up over the past 19 years to carry and produce the maximum amount of livestock. This cattle ranch for sale is ready to go with 30 different paddocks established. All paddocks have been fenced and cross fenced with sheep, hog and goat wire as well as barbed wire. Each pasture has access to fresh water and shade for the animals.
From freeze proof waterers to post and beam awnings, livestock have everything they need no matter which section of pasture they are moved to for grazing. Rotational grazing is the ideal way to maximize the carrying capacity and with the work done on this ranch, over 75 cow/calf pairs can be ran easily. Four of the pastures are in warm season grasses and the rest are in mixed grasses. Access to the paddocks are provided by well maintained roads with bases hauled from the nearby quarry. A recently built custom pipe corral aids in loading and working livestock. The western portion of the property is a mix of hardwoods and native grasses providing exceptional habitat for whitetail deer and turkey. Just below the home is a beautiful 5 acre lake that has been stocked with several specials of fish.
The beautiful 2,089 square foot multi-level home was built in 2003 and is perfectly situated overlooking the 5 acre lake. No corners were cut in the construction of this 3 bed and 2 bath home. On the main level, the master bed and bath has a large walk in closet, as well as a jacuzzi tub and shower. The kitchen is well laid out and is highlighted by the attention to detail. The cabinets were custom built and installed by Dream Maker Kitchens and the bamboo flooring is second to none. The living room has a large brick fireplace and sits just adjacent to the kitchen. In addition to the master suite, there’s also and additional bedroom and bathroom. The loft is approximately 150 square feet that is currently being used as a guest bedroom. The basement covers 797 square feet and features a safe room that is fully concreted on all sides. There’s also a mechanical room and a pantry located in the basement as well. One aspect of the home that stands out is the geothermal system. This system makes the home heating and cooling extremely efficient. An additional room, currently used as a sewing room, would also make a great office space. There is an attached garage that leads into the laundry room just off the kitchen.
Additional improvements on the farm include multiple barns and a really nice set of pipe corrals. The main barn is 60×100 with a 20 foot lean to on the side. Additional outbuildings include a 24×40 equipment shed with lean-to and 3 strategically placed livestock shelter/shade structures.
