Rush Creek Ranch is a productive farm-ranch combination consisting of 473.8 acres located just south of Rushville, Nebraska along NE State Hwy 250. The ranch is an excellent feed producer with 151 acres irrigated, creek bottom & upland grassland, a complete set of building improvements and a second modern home that needs construction work.
The property consists of two tax parcels with 473.83 acres. The 151 irrigated acres are irrigated by three small pivots and have water rights from five irrigation wells listed below. The wells are typically pumping from 85 to 100 feet in depth with one deeper well that is 250 deep and pumping from 170. There is about 50 acres of dry cropland, and the balance is pasture and building sites. Rush Creek bisects the property along the western boundary providing excellent grass pasture with upland pasture on the north and south end of the property. The property is cross-fenced and there are five electric domestic/stock wells. A large tree windbreak runs north and south in the middle portion of the property providing excellent protection.

A second home is located about 3/8ths of a mile south of the headquarters. This 1981 brick home is two stories, constructed of masonry brick with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The home has a beautiful yard and private setting with abundant trees. The home was smoke damaged when an adjoining garage burned. Repairing this home would add considerable equity to the property.
Rush Creek Ranch is well cared for property providing a quality forage or crop production and capable of handling livestock. The current operator used the property to winter a large number of cattle. The ranch would make a good cattle and or horse ranch with additional income from cash crops. The two homes allow for family integration or separating off part of the property. The proximity to a viable small community and paved state road access makes this a desired investment.
