THE RESERVOIR RANCH
This beautiful Ranch located in the Nebraska panhandle is a small piece of the Hunter Empire that was established in the 1800’s as Hunter and Evans. This grass was so good that cattle were brought all the way from Texas to the Ranch in one of the largest cattle drives of the time!
Gently Rolling hills, excellent access, and shallow water make this a very desirable pasture. This pasture has not been grazed for 3 years and is heavily sodded with grasses including Blue Grama, Little Bluestem, Needleandthread, Prairie Sand Reed, and thread leaf sedge (Blackroot). It has historically pastured 185 pair in the summer months – the owner claims calves gain 5 pounds a day and ten at night!
The Ranch borders Box Butte State Recreation and Wildlife Management Area for 1 ½ miles providing opportunities for development, hunting, & more.
