Amistad Cattle Company – Eagle Pass, Texas 78852 – Maverick County
Description: Amistad Cattle Company is a 900+/- acre irrigated cattle facility just south of Eagle Pass, TX. Eagle Pass is a hub for the importation of Mexican cattle and one of the few ports of entry which can facilitate cattle crossing the international border. Formerly a feedlot, this property has multiple sets of pens and working facilities. The infrastructure is still in place, and aside from the mill, all equipment, pens, scales, water troughs, and working chutes are still intact and working. The highlight of the property is the ability to irrigate over 460 acres through a network of underground pipe being pumped directly from the Maverick County canal system.
Amistad Cattle Company has a total of 613.05 acres enrolled in the Maverick County Water & Improvement District which is the basis for allocation of water on an annual basis. This is an abundance of water that is inexpensive and readily available. There is a nice and well maintained 1,850 sq ft brick home on the property, a large office adjacent to the pens, and multiple barns spread across the property. A portion of the property is currently leased to the USDA, and generates substantial income for the property. A City of Eagle Pass water line runs across the front of the property providing potable water to the home, office, and pens. Above all, this property has excellent development potential. The potential to subdivide this property in the future is great. Being only a few miles from existing subdivisions and the Lucky Eagle Casino ( the only legal gambling in Texas ) this property is in the middle of the growth pattern in a fast growing area.
