Four S Land and Cattle Ranch is a 5,970 acre contiguous ranch that features a mix of nearly 700 acres of irrigated pastures & alfalfa fields, along with timbered hills filled with cedar, pinon, & juniper that work their way north into the Blue Mountains. The property benefits from dependable irrigation water from Unity Reservoir and historically has been able to produce up to 1,500+/- tons of hay when in full production. The mixed landscape of timbered hills and alfalfa meadows  also provides an ideal habitat for elk, deer, and other game that can be found throughout the ranch. Improvements include an owners house, a newer manufactured guest house, a ranch hand house, two shops, a calving barn, & working corrals with hydraulic chute.

Conservatively estimated to run 250-300 pairs and put up enough hay for winter feeding with some left over to sell. Historical hay production has been between 1,300-1,500 total tons. This number could probably be higher with more intensive management. Alfalfa is grown on approximately 80 acres under center pivot and approximately 80 acres under two wheel lines. Irrigation water from Unity Reservoir is about as dependable as there is in eastern Oregon. The reservoir fills almost every year and a full reservoir results in an irrigation season that lasts through September.


Irrigation water is sourced from both the Burnt River and the North Fork of the Burnt River. The Burnt River flows through the ranch for nearly 1 mile after it leaves Unity Reservoir. In addition to the river, Cottonwood Creek and Beaverdam Creek flow through the ranch from north to south before they enter the Burnt River. Livestock water in the range pasture is provided by two spring fed stock ponds, a solar well that feeds 8 water troughs, and numerous undeveloped springs and seeps.

Area History

The area around Hereford was originally inhabited by Native American tribes, including the Paiute and Nez Perce. In the mid-1800s, as pioneers ventured westward during the Oregon Trail era, Hereford became a stopping point for travelers and settlers. The abundant natural resources, including fertile land and water sources, attracted people to the area.
