This Nebraska ranch for sale has it all – 9,566± deeded acres, an 8,300-square-foot lodge, three miles of North Loup River frontage, two center pivots, a 2,500 foot paved runway, and a second home. Its river frontage and associated meadows, bottoms, and ponds, and shelters belts and mature timber, make it a wildlife mecca that supports a thriving deer and turkey population. Located in some of the best cattle country in the world near one of the highest-price cattle markets, the property supports a profitable 650-700 cow-calf plus yearling operation with minimal labor needs and simplified management.
