Flora and Fauna
The vegetation in the area is a great mixture of high-quality native grass and buffelgrass that creates the ideal environment for grazing animals. The brush is made up of what you’d expect to find in South Texas, including; mesquite, lime prickly ash, granjeno, hog plum, persimmon, and guayacan. There’s plenty of trees and transition areas on offer too for great views of the wildlife. It’s also good for the wildlife, providing the deer, doves, quail, hogs, and turkey that inhabit the ranch with room to hide and forage.
The ranch has a wealth of access to water. If anything, this abundance of water is the secret to the success of the SR Ranch. There are three water tanks to the north, south, and central parts of the property. The central water tank provides the headquarters with water. The southern water tank is fuelled by a solar-powered well that pumps water. There are cisterns near the water wells for storage. The availability of water on the ranch, combined with the cross-fencing, creates the ideal environment for raising cattle and also provides water to the local wildlife.
The SR Ranch has received several improvements over time. These improvements have made it more efficient for taking care of cattle and reaping the bounty of the South Texas brush. The Ranch has an implement barn, a set of working pens, a camp house completed with a covered porch, a water well, trough, and cistern, and other improvements.
Every area of the ranch can be accessed using the roads that cover it as well as through the fence line. SR Ranch is protected by first-rate high fence perimeter wiring. It is separated into separate pastures with the help of 5-wire cross fencing, giving you plenty of choice over the kinds of plants and animals you want to take care of.
