Cat Canyon RanchVal Verde County
The Cat Canyon Ranch is located 42 miles south of Ozona, Texas. Situated right on the northern boundary of Val Verde County, the ranch is characterized by multiple deep canyons, grassy plateaus, and long vistas in every direction. The beautiful views and vast landscape are just a few of many outstanding features of this Southwest Texas ranch.
VEGETATION HABITAT AND SOIL: The topography and terrain of the Cat Canyon Ranch provide excellent habitat and cover for wildlife. Shallow, rocky soils cover most of the ranch, with deeper, loamy soils in the bottomlands. This ranch supports a large diversity of browse, forbs, and grasses. There is moderate to heavy brush coverage throughout the majority of the property. Red Berry Juniper and Mesquite are the primary trees. Other types of browse include Lotebush, Yucca, Sotal, Catclaw, and Prickly Pear. A few of the more notable grasses on the ranch include Sideoats Grama (the state grass of Texas), Blue Grama, Black Grama, Buffalograss, Little Bluestem, and Green Sprangletop. The growing season generally begins in the middle of May and ends towards the end of September. Annual rainfall for this area is 18”+/-.
IMPROVEMENTS: Cat Canyon Ranch is a blank slate, ready for the future owner to make it their own.
WATER: No water well on the ranch. A well would need to be drilled, or water would need to be hauled in.
WILDLIFE: The ranch has abundant wildlife, including Whitetail Deer, Wild Hogs, Aoudad, Turkey, Dove, and Predators.
LIVESTOCK: The average stocking rate for this area is 64 acres/animal unit. The terrain is best suited to run sheep and goats, but additional water and fencing would be necessary. The ranch has been rested from grazing for quite some time.
TOPOGRAPHY: The elevation on the Cat Canyon Ranch ranges from 2,100 ft – 2,240 ft. There are two main canyons that cut through the ranch, running West to East.
