Colorado Ranch Sells Before Scheduled Auction

GREELEY, CO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2010) - The planned auction of one of Colorado's most prominent ranches has been called off because the ranch has been sold in a private transaction.

"The purpose of the auction is to get the property sold, and this was one of those cases where the planned auction attracted an early offer that the seller was willing to accept," said Scott Shuman, of Westchester Auctions.

Owner Sue Beeson said, "We were pleased that the planned auction attracted an early offer. We had an interested buyer who was willing to make an acceptable offer, so we accomplished our objectives a bit earlier than we had expected."

The ranch has 8,000 acres of deeded pasture and grazing land and 1,920 acres leased from the state. Additionally the Colorado ranch includes 300 animal grazing units as one of the original members of the 196,000 acre Crow Valley Grazing Association.

Upcoming auctions for Westchester include 24,514 acres in Montana and 1,129 acres in Oklahoma. Additional auction information on those and other sales is available by calling the auction company at 970-454-2062 or visiting
