First I would like to thank you for visiting my website Ranches4U. I hope to make this experience a pleasant one for you and if you have any suggestions for improvements please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This site is intended to support and help market my ranch listings as well as my hobby farms, my large and rural acreages as well as my horse and equestrian properties. As this site develops I intend to add various articles such as immigration to BC when buying a ranch, financing a ranch, selling options for cattle, range permits & leases, etc. I believe in order to have credibility and be effective as a realtor while selling ranches, the realtor needs to have experienced the ranch way of life. A realtor without experience will be handicapped in communicating with any degree of effectiveness to a prospective ranch client. If he does not have a basic understanding of the various elements that control the success of a ranching operation, such as, importance of weather, supply of water, herd health and maintaining low calf losses, carrying capacity of land, the ever increasing issue of predators, stress of marketing cattle and making that mortgage payment, the effect of fuel costs on profitability, the never ending increase in fertilizer cost, and such.
