Whitney Pasture
Weston & Niobrara Counties, Wyoming
1,985 acres - $1,191,000

Property and Current Operation:
The ranch comprises 1,985 deeded acres in a single, contiguous block. Historically the ranch has been used for summer pasture. The high-protein native grasses are known to typically yield excellent gains for cattle.  

Over the past few years, dinosaur hunters have explored areas of the property for excavation sites. The current license for dinosaur fossil exploration and collection will expire in 2025, with the landowner set to receive a portion of any fossil sales. 

Water resources are distributed throughout the property, with three watering points dispersed in the pasture. At the northern end of the ranch there is a solar well with the overflow from the tank running into a catch-pond. Further south, a windmill, which has been converted to a submersible pump, supplies water to two tanks and a cistern storage tank. Additionally, a shared water line from a neighboring property supplies a tank on the southwest side of the ranch.

An electrical line runs through the northwestern portion of the ranch near Roxson Road. Power has not yet been connected for service on the property. 

The topography features expansive open grassland pastures with native hard-grasses, draws and rolling hills that offer sweeping Wyoming vistas. Interesting rock outcroppings and Hoodoo formations, which have been carved over time by wind and water, jut out from the landscape. Some of the topographical features and landmarks on the ranch include Rock Corral Draw, Trout Draw and Bum Draw. The elevation is in the range of 4,000 feet. 

The owners allow a limited amount of pronghorn antelope and mule deer hunting, along with prairie dog hunting. Other area wildlife includes mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, red fox, hawks and eagles. More information on hunt areas and seasons can be obtained from the Wyoming Game and Fish at  

On the east side, the property is adjacent to a section of State Trust Land. BLM land parcels border the ranch on the east and south. The ranch is about an hour’s drive from the heart of the Black Hills, where hundreds of thousands of acres of Black Hills National Forest is available for year-round recreation. 

Access & Location:
The ranch is located in southern Weston County and northern Niobrara County, about a 45-minute drive southeast of Newcastle, with county maintained graveled access on Roxson Road. To reach the ranch from Newcastle, take Highway 85 south for 22.7 miles, then turn right onto Cheyenne River Road and travel 10.4 miles (staying on Cheyenne River Road), then take Roxson Road for another 1.5 miles to the property.
