Terrain:

The Graf Ranch is a fully outfitted cattle ranch located just 9 miles north of Henrietta, Texas, in the heart of excellent ranch country. The property is comprised of 1,225 acres of beautiful rolling prairie grasses with several excellent cultivated fields dispersed throughout. The most prominent elevation is located near the headquarters providing stunning views of the ranch in all directions. A wet weather creek runs for over a mile through the native grass pastures on the north side of the property. This provides excellent water catchment for 4 of the 7 ponds on the property. Great care has been taken to eliminate mesquite trees throughout the ranch, while maintaining a nice balance of shade trees for livestock. The Graf Ranch also has multiple terraces on the slightly steeper slopes that maintain the deep rich soils and help utilize moisture levels. The southern portion of the property is cross fenced and flatter which yields itself for better cultivation to allow multiple crops to be grown. With roads on all four sides of the property, access to any area of the 1,225 acres is just a short drive. A nice brick house with basement provides the hub for the headquarters and is fully equipped to handle all the day-to-day cattle operations. A newly built set of covered pipe pens with digital livestock scales is located just north of the house. This setup has been thoroughly designed for safety and convenience; from its sweep tube gate, squeeze chute with palpation cage, and adjustable alley with catwalk. All these features enable quick and efficient work of the herd. Just north of the working pens is a large enclosed equipment barn with livestock loafing shed that provides both storage for equipment and cattle. Another large tractor barn provides additional storage for equipment just east of the house. This barn is equipped with two sets of extra wide sliding doors to accommodate larger pieces of farm and ranch equipment. With this property being a turn-key livestock operation and having cultivated acreage, it comes with three Butler galvanized grain bins allowing for easy distribution of cubes or grain to livestock or for storing seed wheat onsite. Proceeding north from the headquarters offers a 500-600 yard lane that connects multiple weaning/conditioning pens with four bunk feeders on concrete pads. In addition to the great amenities at the headquarters there are two sets of pipe corrals located in one of the many cross fenced pastures on the north and east ends of the ranch. This is just a short description of the Graf Ranch.  You must see this property to truly appreciate all this ranch has to offer.
