69,126-Acre Front Range Ranch Lists for $16.5 Million

Red Top Ranch, one of Colorado’s best known cattle operations, has been listed with Ken Mirr of Mirr Ranch Group for approximately $238 per deeded acre. Currently owned by the Malone Family Land Preservation Foundation, the ranch was owned by the Johnston family for much of the 20th century. Bob Johnston Jr. (1919—2005) served as president of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association and was on the executive committee of the American National Cattlemen’s Association. Red Top Ranch includes 69,126 deeded acres, 8,445 acres of leased state land, and 1,598 acres of leased BLM land. The ranch boasts ideal grazing terrain: mostly flat to gently rolling shortgrass prairie and sculpted canyons. Carrying capacity is approximately 1,200 cow-calf pairs. Annual precipitation runs about 12 inches, which is typical for this section of the Great Plains. Portions of the ranch are protected by conservation easements with Colorado Parks & Wildlife and The Nature Conservancy.
