DESCRIPTION: Rattan Ranch - 2,234.27 acres, more or less, located 8.4 miles north east of Matador – Excellent ranch with two live water creeks, an old house, a 97-acre cultivated food plot, and working cattle pens all centrally located.

In addition, Longs Branch, another year-round live water creek enters the north west corner of the south section and feeds into Ballard Creek.
