Outstanding opportunity to acquire high quality ranch land in Choteau County, Montana!

Native pastures are thriving, which has attracted a strong population of Mule Deer and Antelope to utilize the ranch. The old homestead is located on Tract 1, which includes the ranch house, garage, outbuildings and older grain storage bins. The building improvements and fences on the ranch are in need of repair but the foundation is strong in this excellent parcel of Choteau County land.
