There are four stock tanks providing water to wildlife and cattle.

History: Mona Lasater was born on October 2, 1925, in Harpersville, Texas, to William T. (Tom) and Augusta (Gussie) Mae Mueller Moore. When she was two, the family moved to a farm near Eolian, where she grew up living the life she loved alongside animals and nature. Mona Lasater graduated as Salutatorian from Breckenridge High School in 1942, then returned the following year for a postgraduate course, after which she spent a year at her first job as a statement clerk at First National Bank. She then attended TCU and studied voice and music education. In 1974, Mona married Jodie Ray Lasater, and in 1975, they moved back to Breckenridge to re-involve herself in farming and ranching. Mona became co-founder, officer, and director of the Stephens County Humane Society until she reached the age when she was no longer capable. Mona loved farming, the work that went with it, books, music, animals in general, and dogs in particular. She once had as many as seven dogs on the ranch and always wanted more. She tried extremely hard to better the lives of every creature that crossed her path. Mona Lasater passed away on August 5, 2023. 

Terrain: Rolling to level terrain with an elevation change of roughly 50 feet. The north-central portion of the property has the highest elevations and gently rolls to the lowest elevation in the southwest corner. Lovely distant views and a couple of drainages meander through the ranch's center, providing water to the four (4) stock tanks on the property. There are rocky terrain areas and areas with more productive, deeper soils.    

Vegetation: Located in the Cross Timbers Region of Texas, tree cover consists of mature post oaks, cedar elm, hackberry, mesquite, and various other trees commonly found in this area. Forbs, browse, and cactus species include elbowbush, skunkbush, prickly pear, tasajillo, catclaw, lotebush, and greenbrier, to name a few. Native grasses include side oats grama, bluestem, switchgrass, Texas wintergrass, dropseed, buffalo grass, Indiangrass, curly mesquite, and a variety of other grasses. Wildlife habitat and pastureland are typical of Stephens County. 

Water: Four (4) earthen stock tanks provide water to livestock and wildlife. Rainfall averages around 29 inches annually. A rural water line runs along the road frontage on FM 3418. There is no groundwater in this area. 

Wildlife:  Deer, turkey, hogs, quail, dove, ducks, and native wildlife species are plentiful and provide excellent hunting and viewing opportunities. Migratory ducks utilize the stock tanks in the fall and winter months. The ranch has not been leased for hunting, resulting in healthy populations.

Grazing: Carrying capacity for cattle is approximately one animal unit per 25-30 acres. This ranch is 100% native, with three old cultivated fields that need reclamation. These fields were planted in the past and could be used again for winter wheat production, wildlife food plots, sunflower fields, etc. 

Soils: Many soil types are found, but much of the property is Thurber clay loam. These soils are excellent for cultivating crops, pastureland, rangeland, woodlands, and wildlife habitat. 

Fencing: Perimeter fences are in poor to average condition. There are several internal cross fences that most would not deem functional.  

Internal Roads & Access:  Access includes road frontage on FM 3418 with one entry gate in the southeast corner. A back gate on CR 185 is also in place. The interior road system is limited and needs to be improved. 

Electricity: Comanche Electric Cooperative provides electricity to the property.  

Rural Water: Stephens Special Utility District is believed to have a 4-inch water line along FM 3418. An application with the Stephens County SUD needs to be submitted to confirm that a water meter still needs to be put in place.

Oil & Gas Production: There is no active production on the property.  

School District: Breckenridge ISD. 

Airports: Stephens County Airport is located 5.7 miles from the property. It is a quality airport with a 5,000-foot runway to accommodate larger aircraft. Fuel is available as well. 

Hospitals: Stephens Memorial Hospital is located in Breckenridge.
