Property Description

Here is an awesome multipurpose property totaling 1773 +/- acres on Bobtail Creek south of Palisade, Nebraska in Hitchcock County.  The ranch boasts over 1200 acres of pastureland that supports a mixed-grass prairie community. Upland vegetation includes Little Bluestem, Sideoats Grama, Blue Grama, Western Wheatgrass and many other warm and cool season grasses.  The main draw on the west side of the property boasts approximately 1.6 miles of Bobtail Creek that flows year-round.   Several large pools have formed along the creek providing excellent water holes for wildlife, some of which hold Bluegill and small bait fish.  Along Bobtail creek there are large stands of Cottonwood and Cedar trees with the smattering of other hardwoods throughout the bottoms.  The many feeder draws that join Bobtail Creek offer plenty of cover and hiding places for the wildlife that call this place home. 

Recreation

The hunting on the Bobtail Creek Ranch has historically been very good with large herds of Mule deer and the occasional Whitetail deer.  The average bucks taken have been 130”-160” with larger deer taken periodically.  There are also large groups of Merriam’s and Rio Grand Turkeys that frequent the area.  As you head up out of the creek there are pockets of excellent pheasant and quail habitat.   Along the edges of the dryland farm ground and the many mature tree rows, the birds will utilize the cover to nest and hide providing very good opportunity for multiple limits of bird.  This very diverse property offers so much opportunity for the outdoorsman to make this a multi season hunters paradise with potential for agricultural income.  Or vice-versa, it is a well-rounded cattle ranch that will allow a producer to raise livestock and crops with the opportunity for some nice income potential via hunting lease or outfitting. 

Agriculture

The current owner has had a very stringent grazing plan and has run approximately 120 cows annually.  Historically there has been plenty of hold over feed and carrying capacity could be increased to around 150 cows.  Currently the dryland farm operations are being utilized for hay production with approximately 120 acres in Alfalfa/grass mix and the remaining 450 is in cane.  Approximately 4 tons/ acre of cane hay have been produced annually. 

Improvements

The home is an older 4-bedroom 2 bath ranch style with lots of character. Two large livestock barns with working pens and two large lots for feeder cattle are located on site as well.  There are two grain bins and multiple outbuildings for storage additionally a 30' x 30" shed for equipment storage is on site as well.    

The area usually sees on average 240 days of sun and rainfall is around 21 inches annually.
