Battleship Ranch is a working cow/calf operation that sits on 3,182.79± acres just southwest of Chimney Rock and at the start of the scenic Wildcat Hills in western Nebraska. Battleship Ranch gets its name from “Battleship Rock” which sits just east of the main headquarters within the ranch. The Edwards Family has called the ranch “Home” since 2011, and has decided to allow a new owner to continue the Battleship Ranch legacy.

The main headquarters offers many improvements starting with a beautiful 3,650 square foot two-story home built in 1998, with an oversized two-car attached garage, and a wraparound deck on the south, east, and west side to enjoy the morning sunrises over Battleship Rock and the endless sunsets over the Wildcat Hills!

The 36x108 main pole barn is set up to make working cattle and calving smooth, safe, and low stress on the livestock. The pole barn features working pens on the outside that lead to the main working facilities inside the barn and include an alleyway, tub, and hydraulic chute. The main barn is set up for calving and includes two horse stalls with exterior runs to the east with its own water. Topping off the main barn is a heated and cooled, fully insulated tack room with its own restroom to make the calving season a smooth one. Other improvements include a shop, farm utility building, loafing sheds, a chicken shed, and a grain bin. The ranch also offers a heated water storage building supplying 10,000 gallons of backup water that supplements the corrals when they are full of livestock as well as the feedlot pens. All three wells on the property are equipped with valves to shut off or redirect water if needed.

The owner rates the carrying capacity at 250 head of cow/calf pairs year-round, with rainier years offering a higher carrying capacity. Along with the good hard grass, the ranch has a 120-acre pivot currently planted to grass hay providing winter feed. The ranch is well watered throughout all pastures, as the current owners have made a significant investment in infrastructure throughout the ranch.  Live water and natural flowing springs also provide water for livestock and wildlife. The ranch has four lots set up for backgrounding up to 500 head of cattle. The Battleship Ranch is a complete turnkey working cattle ranch that will impress sportsmen and cattlemen alike.
