Ranch Construction
Phase One (in progress):

A. We're in communication with Tim, of X Bar V LLC in Penrose, Colorado for the construction of the Pole style Ag building.

B. Pasture grass, ground cover and fertilizer is extremely important for soil health, grazing and the ability of the ground to hold moisture. Therefore, research on seed mixtures for this area and climate shall be on-going to find the best mix. The Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) provided a seed list containing a mixture of 8 different native species, which we'll start with. Additional grass and ground cover species will be added over time. Unfortunately, some of the ground cover we would like to plant won't grow in this climate.

C. Pastures will be fertilized. Only natural fertilizer will be used as needed. NO synthetics!

D. Some of the out-buildings will be constructed.

Phase Two (in progress):

A. Weeds, invasive plants and scrub brush will be cleared from the North pastures and as they regrow.

B. Fencing

1. North half of the property.
2. Sub-divided into multiple pastures.
Anyone want to help with the pasture clearing and fence building?

C. North pastures will be fertilized, seeded and reseeded as needed to improve the grass, ground cover and grazing.

D. Cattle guards will be installed in several locations.

A "Cow Stop" Reusable Form from Cattle Guard Forms will be used to make a better and safer cattle guard out of concrete (HS-20 certified). I can make as many as I need from this reusable form and it's much less expensive than ordering an old style metal guard.

E. Corrals will be constructed.

F. Water and electric

1. Trenched to the Ag building site.

2. Trenched to key locations in the North pastures where water troughs will be installed (heated in winter).

Phase Three (Fall 2019):

A. The Pole style Ag building will be constructed.

B. Our cattle will arrive.

Phase Four (Spring 2020):

A. Weeds, invasive plants and scrub brush will be cleared and recleared as needed from all pastures (on-going).

B. The rest of the property (South half) will be fenced and sub-divided into multiple pastures.

Anyone want to help with the pasture clearing and fence building?

C. Water and electric will be trenched to key locations in the South pastures where water troughs will be installed (heated in winter).

D. All pastures will be fertilized and reseeded as needed to improve the grass, ground cover and grazing (on-going).

Phase Five (Future date):

The Ranch House blueprints will be drawn.

Phase Six (future date):

The Ranch House will be built

Phase Seven (future date):

Additional out-buildings will be constructed as needed.

These and additional Phases are scheduled over several years. Some of the Phases will be completed as quickly as possible; such as Phase 1 and 2. Some will be completed out of sequence, or renumbered. Multiple Phases could be done at the same time. Additionally, new items could be placed into any existing, or new Phase and items already scheduled in a Phase, could be switched into another phase.

As things progress, everything planned above could change at any time without notice.
