Mule deer, Whitetail deer, and wild turkey are abundant. There are several submersible wells with miles of all underground water pipes that feed approximately 60 stock tanks throughout the Ranch. Water makes a ranch, so this Ranch is a dandy! The fences on this Ranch are mostly four and five-wire and built with hedge posts which are second to none. A portion of the fence has been replaced and built new in the last few years. It has many cross fences with warm and cool season grasses. The grass on this Ranch is exceptional as there has always been a minimal amount of livestock grazing these pastures. The Ranch and pastures have been very well managed over the years. Also included is a quarter of ground in the SW ¼ of Section 17-2-39, that is currently enrolled in the CREP Program. This contract is set to expire this year, therefore, it is up for re-enrollment, and the current owner has an application in place for a 10-year renewal at a current bid of $168.00 per acre. The exact CREP acres are yet to be determined by the Dundy County FSA because, on this particular quarter, a new oil well was recently drilled and cased. All mineral rights the current owner has, will be transferred to the new owner. It has an inoperable center pivot and panel box with an electric motor still in place on this quarter. Take a look, and you will see that this spread may soon be your Ranch Headquarters. 2021 Taxes: $63,515.71 Legal Descriptions: See the attachment below for complete legal descriptions and acreages.
