Rushville, NE, USA
Located 14 miles south of Rushville, Nebraska, is a productive ranch and a hunter’s paradise. With over a half mile of the Niobrara River running through the property, the setting of the Johndreau Ranch is one of Sheridan County’s finest. Making their home in the beautiful tree lined river bottoms is a variety of wildlife including antelope, Merriam turkeys, whitetail and mule deer.
The ranch is comprised of 1,920 deeded acres +/- with 161 acres enrolled in CRP ($5,889). In 2014, a new 210’ well was drilled with static water at 143 feet. Powered by a 2hp solar pump, there are six stock tanks fed by 2.5 miles of buried pipeline providing multiple water sources in each pasture with the balance of the ranch being watered via the Niobrara River. Fencing throughout the ranch is in excellent condition and the owner has rated this ranch at 150 pairs for 5.5 months. The Johndreau Ranch is enrolled in the CSP program (expires in 2018, but may be renewed) providing an additional $23,820 of income.
As mentioned previously, the setting of this property is second to none. With county road access and end of the road privacy, the ranch sits just two miles off of State Highway 250. You can’t imagine a more beautiful and peaceful setting to call home. With views overlooking the river bottom, the farm house and improvements are nestled on a flat against a steep embankment. The older farm house is a four bed, one bath home with a kitchen, living room and dining room. Other improvements include a 20’X70’ barn with a newer roof, a 50’X28’ shop and numerous other outbuildings.
The Johndreau Ranch must be seen to be appreciated. Few ranches are as well watered with excellent hunting, live water and a good income stream which the Johndreau Ranch meets or exceeds each of those criteria.
