think 50 years ago My Dad's Uncle wanted my Grand Dad and Dad buy the Spanish Ranch.... that time it was way more sheep then cows, Uncle Gene was going to handle the sheep side.

I've never bought a ranch, but if its for sale at $50 million and it runs 9000 cows, thats about $5,555 per cow. I don't think I could buy enough land to run a cow for a year here for $5,555. I guess the leases have to be figured in to the cost, but you'd also have to figure in the income from other enterprises. Maybe $50 million isn't a bad deal?

It was 50 million in 2010. It's 77million today.

If it is based on running cows, it will go down with this market

I agree. The value of this ranch is its water. Someone will get rich piping it to Las Vegas.
