Agisle ranch shares are contract-based, asset-backed, and cash-yielding. The land title of a productive cattle ranch is placed into an LLC and divided into shares. Investors purchase shares directly.
Good ranching is not just good business, it's a basis for financial partnership. Agisle employs best-in-class ranching practices in a fiduciary capacity, to serve the goals of like-minded partners seeking high-integrity investment opportunities in an uncertain world.
Agisle specializes in low-input, native grasslands suited to regenerative livestock grazing. We avoid expensive row crop farmland. The result is lower cost, less risk, and positive environmental impact.
Larger, commercially-viable land tracts tend to be more affordable on a per-acre basis than, say, a 50-acre homestead. The pooling of capital opens up better value opportunities for fractional shareholders.
- Investors own the land & structures only, not livestock & equipment
- Agisle engages experienced, grass-fed cattle operators in a multi-year lease agreement to steward the land and provide reliable dividend income
- There are no management fees, capital calls, nor debt obligations
Agricultural real estate appreciated +14% per annum during the high-inflation era from 1970 to 1980, according to USDA data. Could monetary debasement be driving rising Ag land interest?
During the 2008-09 Great Financial Crisis, USDA average ranchland values fell just -2.8% — the only year-over-year decline of the last 26 years.
As an asset class, US ranchland has delivered a +6.5% compound annual return since 1997, with just 6% annualized volatility. The S&P500 has returned +7.0% on 18% volatility. That's a similar return to US equities with a fraction of the risk.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.
Grasslands are our specialty and passion. Agisle offers properties best-suited to regenerative livestock grazing. We avoid row crop farmland and the costly and harmful inputs they require, such as chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, diesel, and heavy machinery. The result is less risk, lower overhead, and better value, all achieved with positive environmental impact.
A ranch is an investment that's much more than a number on a screen. It's a partnership that restores a connection to the land and its agricultural heritage. Agisle shareholders are encouraged to visit the ranch, get to know the ranchers, and take part in annual shareholder meetings, work days, and education seminars.
The USA loses 3% of its ranch and farmland to development every year. It’s time to change that trend. Agisle ensures that one of America’s greatest assets — native grassland — is preserved and held in trust...by you. Ranch values should continue to appreciate due to limited supply, rising food prices, but also powerful value drivers.
Ranching is a rare production system where profitability and sustainability align to perfection. What’s best for healthy, grass-fed cattle is precisely what benefits the land and flows to the bottom line. The quality and value of Agisle properties are expected to improve with each new grazing season thanks to holistic management. The result is a uniquely sustainable and profitable investment model.
High-density, rotational livestock grazing improves the nutrient density, microbial diversity, and carbon-storing capacity of the soil. Healthier soils, in turn, preserve perennial grasses, plant diversity, and delicate wildlife ecosystems, while staving off desertification and dustbowls.
