    the 2,400-acre spread, where Imus for years had played host to kids with cancer, will be $5 million in an auction that’s slated for June 15, the famously cranky radio jock told The Post.

    “We really would love to turn it over to a group that does something with it like we did — someone with an altruistic heart,” Imus said in a phone interview this week.

    The 76-year-old host of the “Imus in the Morning Show” on Cumulus Media’s 77WABC initially tried to sell the spread — 50 miles southeast of Santa Fe — for $35 million nearly three years ago.

    After failing to attract any bidders, Imus lowered the price to $29.9 million — and then to $19.9 million before the listing expired last October, said Craig Huitfeldt, the Santa Fe realtor who had the listing.

    In October 2014, after deciding to put the property up for sale, Imus cited health issues stemming from a rib-breaking fall from a horse at the ranch.

    “It’s difficult to breathe there,” he told the Albuquerque Journal, speaking of the 7,000-feet altitude of the ranch in Ribero, NM.

    The working ranch stopped catering to kids after the summer season of 2014, and Imus relocated to Brenham, Texas — halfway between Austin and Houston and situated just 495 feet above sea level. He also reduced his radio show to three hours, after logging four hours each weekday for decades.

    Plenty of room for Beth to spread out with her altruistic endeavors.

    Let's start thinking of names:

    Cat Ranch?

    Pussy Ranch?

    One-Eye Ranch?

    Oops-We-Lost-Another-One Ranch?

    The problem is how many red carpet events happen in Ribero, NM.

    If Howard does buy it, they should call it Bended Knee Ranch.

    Totally unrelated, but deserves a like, nonetheless.

    That's what I was thinking. I thought he was in his 90s. Seriously.

    I would've guessed 86 easy. And that's taking into account his drinking and drugging days

    Its difficult to breathe there......quite a sales pitch, Imus. Still, $5m for 2,400 acres and a ranch aint bad.

    No way does that compare to Howard's work ethic of 3 days a week and only 12 weeks of vacation.
