Pettit Ranch – 4,960 +/- Acres in McPherson County, NE


Property Overview:  The Pettit Ranch, established in 1904, is a cattle-producing operation in the heart of the Big Lamunyon Flats in McPherson County, Nebraska.  Consisting of 4,320 +/- continuous deeded acres and a 640-acre school section lease, this scenic, Nebraska Sandhills ranch is located about 4 miles north of Highway 92 in between Tryon & Arthur, Nebraska and approximately one hour from Ogallala or North Platte, which provide some of the best livestock markets in western Nebraska.  An oil paved road runs right through the center of the ranch providing excellent access.

The owners have been consistently running 500+ cows year-round on the ranch.  On an average year, 800-1,000 bales of hay off the many sub-irrigated meadows provide enough feed to get them through the winter, and some years, even provide enough feed to background the calves as well.  The highly-productive Sandhills offer many great native grasses that are known to put the pounds on your livestock and hold a home for many different types of wildlife such as grouse, prairie chicken, turkey, and geese.  The ranch is also home to many large mule deer and occasionally, antelope and white-tail deer.

The ranch is all set up for rotational grazing, as it is currently split into approximately 30 pastures, varying in size.  Due to the incredible Ogallala Aquifer, there is always an abundance of fresh water flowing from the 23 solar wells that are spread throughout the ranch.  With the annual rainfall in the area ranging from 17”-19” per year, drought conditions are rare.  There are also several large ponds that provide a steady stream of water running from the north end of the ranch to the south.

The property is currently open for the 2022 grazing and hunting seasons, as there are no leases in place.  The Seller has paid for the first half of the school section lease, which is paid in two semi-annual payments for a total of $13,720.16.

This property is offered for sale by the Seller with the intention of completing a 1031 exchange.

Housing Overview:  On the ranch headquarters sits two homes.  One was built in 1922 consisting of 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  The other was built in 2015 and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with extra potential in the unfinished upstairs.

Improvements:  There is a 40 x 80 steel building with box stalls, a tack room, and a hydraulic working chute.  There are a few other outbuildings on the ranch that can be used for storage.  Two sets of cattle working facilities, one at the headquarters and one along the blacktop road, make it easy for semis to load and unload livestock.  Established tree shelterbelts provide excellent protection, and a few of the newer strips planted a couple of years ago, will be great for many future years to come.

*Co-listed with Hall & Hall.

The home on this property was built in 1920 and is 1,970 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.  There are also a few rooms that are essential to every “farmhouse” which include a mudroom, laundry room, front porch, and a storm shelter/cellar.  Several built-in cabinets provide great storage and the central heating and air keep the home comfortable year-round.

CRP / Recreational Land in Hayes County – 2 Tracts Available

Here’s a new investment opportunity in Hayes County, Nebraska that includes a total of 319.83 +/- acres being offered in two tracts.  Both properties have been recently re-enrolled into 10 year CRP contracts that expire on 9/30/2030.  There are a total of 281.52 +/- acres currently enrolled into CRP, with an annual payment of $13,231.44 which is $47/acre.  The land has also been enrolled in the Pheasants Forever Walk-in Access Program that pays an additional $8/acre on all 319.83 +/- acres, expiring in 2026.

This property is located between North Platte and McCook, Nebraska with gravel road access. It has a good mix of native grasses and brush that provides great cover and protection for all the wildlife in the area.  The property is in a well-populated area for whitetail deer, mule deer, turkey, quail, prairie chicken, dove, and pheasant.  Pheasants Forever paid to have a private contractor come in approximately 1 ½ years ago and clear all the trees on both properties.

Agent Notes:  With the new CRP contract, the new buyer can graze or hay each tract every other year.  The haying window is July 16th – August 31st, but you are only allowed to hay 50% of the property.  The grazing window is April 1st – April 31st on half the acres or July 16th – September 15th on all the acres.  Doing so will get you a 25% reduction on your annual CRP payment on the acres grazed or hayed that year.  There is an exception to wave the 25% reduction if there are drought conditions in the area that this property is located.  During this past summer of 2021, there were drought conditions and the seller was able to hay both properties, with no reduction to their annual payment.  Both properties averaged approximately 1 bale/acre when hayed.
