Less than 25 miles east of the Grand Parkway and 25 miles west of Beaumont, the 7L Ranch is an excellent upper Texas coast cattle ranch. Excellent access from a state highway, ample rainfall, improved pastures, water availability and distribution, and a beautiful owners home present an excellent livestock opportunity.
Location: The 7L Headquarters is located approximately 5 miles south of Devers on Highway 61. Devers is midway between Houston & Beaumont, 10.5 miles east of the county seat of Liberty on Highway 90. The ranch has excellent access to both cities, and to the sale barn in Raywood.
Entry is from the east border, which fronts Highway 61 for over 7,200 feet.
The Liberty Municipal Airport is conveniently located approximately 7.5 miles from Devers (3,801 runway).
Habitat: This ranch was historically in a rice & cattle rotation. Approximately 234 acres of the ranch are planted in jiggs bermuda, with an additional +134 acres in bahaigrass. The balance of the grazing pastures are in native grasses.
Per USDA data, soils are predominantly Vamont Clay, with approximately 20% of the acreage consisting of various silty and clayey loams.
The topography is generally flat, with elevations of 40-45 feet. Per FEMA data, with the exception of a small area along the creek crossing the northwestern corner of the ranch, the ranch lies outside of the 100 & 500 year flood zones.
A brush and timber-lined creek crosses the west quadrant of the the ranch, providing good cover for deer, hogs, and varmints.
Livestock: As of this writing, there are 300 head of cattle and 70 horses grazing the +852 acres.
The owner will typically also run 500-700 yearlings for approximately three months during the fall.
Wildlife: Native game on the ranch include deer, hogs, dove, quail, and in the winter months, waterfowl.
This area is known for excellent waterfowl hunting, and with some additions of wetland units, could make an excellent duck and goose property during the winter months. During the 2016 crop year, neighboring properties on three sides were planted in rice.
Improvements: A beautiful 3,506SF, 5-bedroom/3.5-bath two story ranch house built in 2009 is well maintained and ready to move into. The open living area with high ceilings and back yard with an ample porch, pool, and hot tub are welcoming to you and your guests are made for entertaining.
There is a clean double-wide ranch foremans house located near the pens (4bed, 2 bath), along with a smaller cabin for housing cowboys or guests.
The shipping pens are located adjacent to Highway 61, and have all weather gravel access.
Water: The City of Devers provides water for the main and secondary houses and pens.
This ranch was formerly in a rice rotation, and still has connectivity to the Devers Canal system (Lower Neches Valley Authority), providing water for livestock, and the potential for irrigation.
In addition to the canals, there are five small stock tanks scattered across the ranch.
Minerals: Surface only.
History: The 7L Ranch is a part of the historic Boyt Ranch. It is a traditionally run ranch where cattle and horses are still its primary source of income. E.W. Boyt arrived here at the age of 15 from Mississippi on a cattle drive and never left. In 1904 he bought his first piece of land and continued to grow it into what is now a 5th generation ranch. With the help of his son Cecil, the 7L division of the Boyt Ranch quickly became one of the area's most prominent and successful Brahman ranches and was known for its large herd of quarter horses. It now runs commercial cattle and remains very involved in the horse business, not only to perform its daily duties but also as they market them to the general public. There are very few places this size, this nice, and this ready to operate immediately available in this area.
