Amistad Cattle CompanyMaverick 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 that can facilitate cattle crossing the international border. Formerly a feedlot, this property has multiple sets of pens and working facilities.
Improvements: 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 property has a 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.
Water: The property’s highlight is the ability to irrigate over 460 acres through a network of underground pipes pumped directly from the Maverick County canal system.
Amistad Cattle Company has 613.05 acres enrolled in the Maverick County Water & Improvement District, which is the basis for water allocation annually, an abundance of water that is inexpensive and readily available. A City of Eagle Pass water line runs across the front of the property providing potable water to the home, office, and pens.
Additional: A portion of the property is currently leased to the USDA and generates substantial income for the property.
Directions: Above all, this property has excellent development potential. The potential to subdivide this property in the future is tremendous. 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.
