The ranch finds its roots in the charming town of Monticello, located along the scenic New Mexico Highway 142.

Established in 1856 by ranchers and farmers, Monticello is strategically positioned 142 miles Northwest of El Paso, Texas, and 157 miles Southwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the nearest town, Truth or Consequences, just 25 miles to the Southeast.


The ranch features highly usable land, adorned with a welcoming 3,100 square foot modular home, constructed in 2015. Complementing this, various structures enhance the ranch’s functionality, including a spacious 100×24 metal awning, a 20×80 greenhouse, and a 12×12 pump house.


Water is a shining jewel in the crown of the 44 Bar Ranch, boasting 2 irrigation wells with Middle Rio Grande water rights allocated to irrigate 52.2± acres of land. Additionally, the property enjoys 69± hours of Monticello Ditch Association water rights, with water flowing annually down Alamosa Creek. The ranch houses a total of 12 wells, 7 of which are in active use. A sophisticated pipeline system spans approximately 6 miles, feeding 23 drinkers and 7 large storage tanks. Completing this water-rich paradise are 14 dirt tanks thoughtfully placed throughout the property.


The ranch is not only a haven for cattle but also a sanctuary for wildlife, boasting an abundance of quail, deer, antelope, and occasional elk. With the authorization for one-unit wide bull elk in GMU 17 and the potential for a second, the 44 Bar Ranch offers an unparalleled opportunity for both ranching and hunting enthusiasts alike.
