Carrying Capacity

Owner rated at 175-200 cow/calf pairs year around with supplemental feed during the winter. The JM Ranch has a sufficient feed base to provide hay for the ranch stock and has historically produced hay for sale in favorable precipitation years.

Livestock Markets

Nebraska, also known as “The Beef State”, has been home to some of the best operations and highest-producing operations for generations. The ideal climate, quality of available forages, and abundance of open spaces have kept Nebraska at the top of the list, producing $12.1 Billion in annual impact with approximately 20,000 beef cow operations in the state. Due to the amount and quality of cattle produced in the area, the owners of the JM Ranch have several options available to market their livestock. 

    •      Sheridan Livestock Auction (Rushville) ~27mi

    •      Gordon Livestock market (Gordon) ~42mi

    •      Sugar Valley Stockyards (Gering) ~114mi

    •      Crawford Livestock Market (Crawford) ~27mi


Wildlife, views, and most importantly water are all plentiful on the ranch.  All pastures have multiple water sources for livestock provided by a combination of pipeline, springs, creeks, and windmills. Tanks are strategically placed throughout the ranch to ensure proper grazing distribution and resource utilization.  There is approximately two miles of “West Fork Chadron Creek” that flows through the property year around providing excellent habitat for wildlife and a water source for livestock.
Any and all permitted and adjudicated water rights associated with the property, which the Sellers own, shall be transferred to the Buyer upon a fully funded closing.
