Our particular office is in the scenic South of Montana, in Red Lodge, Carbon County, right next to the spectacular Beartooth Highway leading into the Yellowstone Park. Here at the south edge of Montana we have the highest mountains in Montana with 30 peaks over 12,000 feet and over 1,000 lakes on the plateaus (485 are stocked with fish) and more than three million acres of National Forest, Parks and Wilderness. The area around Red Lodge is nestled into the foothills of the Beartooth which feature trout streams, the Red Lodge ski-resort, golf course; a completely restored downtown with good restaurants, movie and live theater, nice shops, good schools and a municipal airport with a 4,000ft runway. There are moose, turkey and deer roaming the sidewalks and an occasional bear will visit your backyard also. We are one hour from Billings, which is rated as one of the top ten cities for relocation because of solid economics, substantial job growth, good schools, recreation and cultural events. Billings has a good University, College and Hospital.
South Central Montana has about 300 days of sunshine a year, and 85% of the snow and rain is to be expected in the spring. Most of Montana is a semi-arid area and it's the mountains that collect the moisture. Therefore acreage alone won't do it in these semi-arid parts. Be aware that you would need 30-50 acres per animal of dry land as opposed to 2 acres of irrigated land to feed one animal year round, hence irrigated land is more expensive and when you have mountain views and a few trees, prices go up another notch. The mountains send the snowmelt down in creeks and underground aquifers, which is absolutely delicious to drink. The farms and ranches have water rights to use the surface and ground water to keep the crops and hay growing. We even have a water court, that determines who gets how much water and the older the water rights, the better. Actually it is the farms and ranches that keep the wildlife in such an abundance, because they are the ones that develop springs, have stock water and grow feed which deer, antelope, elk and moose like to eat. The rivers run the deepest near the mountains, the farther from the mountains, the shallower the rivers. Mountain streams do not flood; they are running way too fast.
