The ranch primarily open grassland with both improved and native grasses. Several pastures have been grubbed and re-planted with grass seed, some pastures were just grubbed without re-planting which allowed native grasses to flourish. There are several fields utilized for hay production. There is currently no cultivated land, if desired there are several areas that could be converted to cultivation. The topography is rolling with moderate elevation changes. There are several large hills offering impressive panoramic views of the ranch and surrounding landscape. There are two named creeks, Bennet and Duck Creek, which is where the majority of the hardwoods reside. There are several other wet weather creeks throughout. The remainder of the ranch is open with minimal coverage of mesquites, mostly large mesquite left in place to offer shade for livestock.
The ranch is adequately watered with over 55 stock ponds. The ponds are strategically placed in each pasture. The ranch is cross fenced into 15 pastures, with several smaller grass traps located near the pens and hay fields. The perimeter and cross fencing is considered to be in good to excellent condition.
