The historic Vermejo Park Ranch is a 560,000 acre ranch in northeast New Mexico and southern Colorado; its modern history originates with the Beaubien and Miranda Land Grant of 1841. The Ranch ranges in elevation from 5,878 feet to 12,931 feet in elevation and spans 6 ecosystems from short-grass prairie to alpine. Vermejo is home to approximately 7,500 elk, thousands of deer, pronghorn, Merriam’s turkeys, bear, cougar and other native wildlife. Bison were first introduced to the Ranch in the 1920s from the Yellowstone herd. The Vermejo bison herd, which in known as the Castle Rock Herd, have been proven to be unique both historically and genetically.
