The two most prominent drainages are the Gallo Draw, which runs through the center of the ranch and the Cowboy Draw, which runs through the northeast corner of the ranch. The Gallo Draw has significant overflow areas that have large areas of giant sacaton, which enhances the grazing capacity of the ranch.

Broker Comments: This ranch at the present time is in drought condition because of a lack of significant rainfall during the past two growing seasons. However the Gallo Draw has run several times, flooding the large amount of giant sacaton in the overflow areas. This feature allows the ranch to maintain a significant amount of animal units on the overflow areas and resting other areas of the ranch. Basically, with this asset, the ranch is more drought resistant than most ranches in the area.
