        Rancho Sukue is located in the Sierra del Burro hills and mountains (also called Serranias del Burro) in northern Coahuila, Mexico, about 60 miles southeast of Big Bend National Park in Texas. It is about 107 kilometers (about 67 miles) north of M zquiz. The ranch is relatively remote and private with elevations ranging from approximately 899 meters (2,950 feet) to 1,350 meters (4,430 feet). On a cloudless night the sky one can marvel at the masterpiece of stars and galaxies.

        With approximately 5,154 total hectares (12,736 acres) it is a good size to enjoy. The ranch is normally stocked with 350 to 400 cows. Calves are weaned in the fall weighing about 225 kilograms (about 500 pounds). There is a good demand for calves in the area. Most are exported to the US through Cd. Acuña/Del Rio, Texas or Piedras Negras/Eagle Pass, Texas.

        Abundant wildlife includes mountain lion, black bear, coyote, fox and deer. A diverse ornithological population is found in the region and the ranch including eagles, quail, dove and wild turkey. Bees are seen throughout. A long growing season is enjoyed with an average annual high temperature of about 86 degrees and an annual average low of 69 degrees. Rainfall averages 18-20 inches.

        The terrain can be described as canyons and valleys bordered by scenic mountains and hills. This region is home to abundant, diverse species of neo-tropical flora which flourish at these latitudes. The biological diverse area has abundant sub-tropical plant life that includes various species of trees, shrubs and grasses including live oak, other varieties of oak, palm, pine, yucca and many more. A wide variety of grasses and browse include gramma grasses, guajillo, cenizo, black brush and many more.

        A well-planned pipe system of more than 40 kilometers (about 25 miles), distributes water to storage tanks and water troughs strategically placed throughout the ranch. Shorter distances to water allow greater utilization of the ranch for livestock and enhances the wildlife population. Water for all the ranch is produced from the Sukue Spring and two wells. One well is on a solar powered submersible and one is powered by generator. The spring and solar powered well are both capable of producing water 24/7.

        Improvements consist of a 3-bedroom, 2-bath house with guest house, foreman’s house, barn, pipe corrals, scales, all located at the headquarters. The corrals are complete with dipping vat and loading chute. The ranch is divided into numerous pastures and traps. There are two, high fenced game preserves, one encompassing about 55 hectares (about 135 acres) and the other about 300 hectares (about 740 acres). Some of the high fence wire was imported from New Zealand and some of it manufactured in Mexico.

        When the Spaniards arrived in the region, they found the natives to be peaceful and prosperous. The Spanish colonized the state between 1550 and 1580, naming it New Extremadura after a region in Spain. They later changed the name to Coahuila. Coahuila has a reputation as a center for wealthy ranches, wine making and commerce. The first wine produced on the American continent was made in Parras in the southern part of the state and the area is still known for its wine production. The town of Piedras Negras is where Chef Ignacio Nacho Anaya served the first-ever plate of nachos in 1943.

        Surrounded by spectacular mountain landscapes, M zquiz, or Melchor M zquiz, the official name, is a beautiful city located 340 kilometers (about 211 miles) north of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. It is one of 38 municipalities of Coahuila, in north-eastern Mexico. The area is especially known for its good ranches.

        Rancho Sukue is one to enjoy the ranch life in quietness and privacy. Whether hunting, working cattle, out for a leisurely horseback ride or even a hike, take in the natural wonder of the area. At night, relax and marvel at the bright galaxies and stars. Vamos al rancho!
