Description

This operational ranch blends flowing water, fertile fields, vast summer grazing lands, abundant recreational options, and convenient year-round accessibility. Spanning over two miles, the North Platte River courses through the Prewitt Ranch, steeped in historical significance along the Oregon Trail and Pony Express route. Situated centrally, it offers quick drives to various towns and recreational spots. With a heritage tracing back to the late 1800s, this ranch remains in the same family's ownership.

The ranch sits in southeastern Wyoming, straddling Platte and Goshen Counties between Guernsey and Lingle. To reach it from Guernsey, head east on US Highway 26 for 4.2 miles until you reach the ranch entrance on the south side of the highway. A well-kept private gravel road extends south from the highway, crossing the railroad tracks and leading directly to the ranch headquarters, which is about 7/10ths of a mile from the highway.

The Land

5,331 ± acres of owned land

240 ± acres of BLM Grazing Permit

2,018 ± acres of State Grazing Lease

Totaling 7,589 ± acres, these grazing areas are contiguous and fenced together.

Acreage counts are believed to be accurate but have not been verified by a professional survey. All acreage counts were obtained from the County Assessors website. The property is being sold by legal description and the acreage amount stated for the property is approximate.

The farming operation encompasses 210 acres of irrigated land serviced by two electric center pivot sprinklers with low-pressure nozzles. Water for irrigation is drawn from two electric wells. The farmland has recently been leased out on a "cash rent" basis.

The rangeland has been managed to nurture healthy grasses, historically supporting a traditional cow/calf operation but also suitable for yearling cattle. The region's high-protein native grasses typically yield excellent cattle gains. Depending on weather conditions, the current owners typically manage around 250 cow-calf pairs, along with 12 bulls and 15 horses. They maintain about one ton of hay per cow for feed, storing it on hand. Calving occurs on the south side of the river, where expansive meadows lined with large cottonwood trees lead to protective cedar hills and draws, providing excellent winter shelter.

*Carrying capacity and crop yields can vary due to weather conditions and management practices. Potential buyers are advised to consult their experts to make their own analysis.*

The ranch features two livestock passages facilitating the movement of cattle between its southern and northern sections without needing to cross highways or railroad tracks. One passage is near the headquarters, while the other is further west, each equipped with trails passing under railroad and highway bridges for convenient livestock movement.

This is a well balanced ranch in the heart of cattle country that offers both a historic working ranch with ample hunting and recreational opportunities.
