Historic water right on the Last Chance Ditch from Trout Creek allows for Summer irrigation on native pastures. Several springs on the property keep clean healthy water flowing year around for the ranch to utilize for livestock. Wildlife are abundant throughout the ranch from cranes, bald eagle, coyote, fox, mountain lion, bear, moose, elk and deer.
The Last Chance Ranch
Good Hope Cattle is located at 8,600 ft elevation in Oak Creek, CO near the base of the Flat Top Wilderness and the untouched surrounding Routt National Forest.
Husband and wife team Matthew and Caitlin Kryder raise Heritage Aberdeen Angus Beef that are 100% grass fed and grass finished with no antibiotics, no added growth hormones or grain. Good Hope Cattle also sells Angus with Altitude Heritage Aberdeen Angus Bulls. These bulls have been PAP tested by Dr. Timothy Holt of CSU to identify their pulmonary artery pressure measurement. This essential early test identifies potential cases of High Mountain Disease (HMD) and ensures proper culling management decisions for breeding stock at high altitudes.
They irrigate and produce their own native grass hay and feed all winter at the Last Chance Ranch, Home of Good Hope Cattle. All cattle are born and raised on the ranch.
Angus with Altitude bulls are sold private treaty. Please contact 970-736-1198 for current beef and bull inventory.
We would be proud to provide our beef product to you…from our ranch, to your home.
