Livestock production is enhanced by 12-individual pastures, excellent boundary and cross fences, incredible livestock watering facilities, via Fishel Creek, springs, wells, and buried water pipelines to all pastures. In the spirit of excellent grazing practices, the owners have only utilized 50% of the pasture on any given year. The headquarters improvements consist of a modern single bedroom home built in in 2008, machinery shop, barn, and working corrals.

This ranch is not encumbered with any conservation or restrictive easements.

Cabin - Fishel Creek Ranch - Roundup, Montana - Western Agri FinancialCabin-Interior - Fishel-Creek-Ranch---Roundup,-Montana---Western-Agri-FinancialThe Musselshell River was named by the Lewis & Clark expedition for the mussels found along the banks of the river. The Musselshell country of central Montana is rich with the early history of the livestock industry. Famed artist Charlie Russell rode the rail road up the Musselshell in 1880, when he made his initial pilgrimage to Montana. The future famed artist “got work” riding for the large ranches in the area, recalling incidents and scenes he captured years later in his iconic paintings of the old west. Today, many of the artifacts left from the early years of the livestock industry remain in the area, calling out to today’s history buff’s looking to find the “Old West”.


Roundup, Montana the Musselshell county seat, was named for the large cattle roundups in the late 1880’s that occurred in the Musselshell country. Roundup is a trade center for the area, and has all the modern services one would expect including a hospital, airport, golf course, fairgrounds, grocery & drug stores, equipment and vehicle dealerships, museums, and great neighbors with an independent spirit of self-reliance!

Billings, Montana’s largest city, lies 55-miles south, and has all of the services a modern, western city. Billings is home to the finest medical facilities in the northwest, an international airport, vibrant commerce and industry, Montana State University, Rocky Mountain College, and recreational activities to meet anyone’s desires, including a jump off point to the Yellowstone Park Country!
