White River Ranch East – 893 +/- Deeded Acres in Dawes County, NE


White River Ranch East sits just 10 minutes north of Chadron, NE along the east side of US Highway 385. The property consists of 893 +/- acres that are set up as a haying and winter grazing operation. There are a total of 87.88 +/- irrigated acres and 620.91 +/- acres of dryland/sub-irrigated river meadows on this property that have mostly been planted to an alfalfa grass hay mix producing over 1,500-2,000 round bales on an average year averaging 1,500 pounds in weight. The additional 184.54 +/- acres of hardland grass tend to be utilized for hay production as well but makes good winter forage once the haying season has ended.

A majority of the interior fences have been rebuilt within the last couple of years as the property is cross-fenced into multiple pastures set up for rotational grazing. White River Ranch East has one windmill along with its own well with an underground waterline system feeding several stock tanks. Grain storage is available in the southeast portion of the property.

The property has just over 1.7 miles of the White River which is a large wildlife attraction and provides great winter protection. The White River Ranch headquarters is located on this portion of the property and includes a 1,104 sq. ft. home built in 1914, three large utility buildings, a barn, and several other tool sheds and small outbuildings for storage. The trees are well-established for privacy and the river runs right off the headquarters to the east!

This ranch is being offered with the intention of the Sellers to complete a successful 1031 exchange.
