The Benefits of Purchasing an Alberta Ranch

Still on the fence about purchasing a ranch in Alberta? Here are just a few of the many benefits that come with owning a ranch in this great province: 

Revenues from Crops and Livestock

If you want to become a rancher, you can sell your harvests and meat products to local restaurants, grocery stores, and processors. You can also sell these at auction markets or directly to consumers.

Preservation of the Environment

Ranches preserve natural heritage. As one, you get the honor of protecting important wildlife habitats, securing watersheds, and contributing to the maintenance of healthy ecosystems in Alberta.

Opportunity for Outdoor Activities

Ranches offer a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking, fishing, horseback riding, hunting, and camping. These are great places to enjoy nature.

Considerations in Choosing the Right Ranch for You


The temperature and rainfall will dictate what types of crops or animals can be raised on the land. For example, cattle ranchers need grasslands that have warm summers and mild winters.

RANCHES-Topography and Terrain

Topography and Terrain

If you’re planning on using the ranch for livestock, then you’ll need to make sure there’s enough pasture land and a water source for your animals. Ranchers need flat or gently rolling land so that they can build fences and easily move their animals around.

Soil Type

If you’re looking to do some farming, then you’ll need to make sure the land is suitable for growing crops. The best soils for ranching are deep, fertile, and well-drained



You’ll want to make sure that the property you purchase is situated in an area that’s conducive to ranching. Proximity to roads, markets, and other ranches can also impact both the cost of inputs and the price you’ll be able to get for your ranch produce.
