Since the early 1800s, settlers have braved the perils of disease, nature, and fatigue associated with their journey out west. Today western states like Nebraska, Colorado, Montana, Oklahoma, Wyoming, South Dakota, and California are still fertile areas for prospective ranches or farm land. There is plenty of western land for sale, proving that the American dream is still alive for many.
A ranch is a specific type of farm that specializes in the raising of livestock like cattle, goats, pigs, sheep, and horses. Due to the rugged yet fertile climate many horse ranches and cattle ranches become popular tourist sites where families can relive the life of cowboys and cowgirls.
