The Hanging H Ranch is a small, family oriented ranch in a historically interesting part of Western Nebraska. Nestled between the rolling sandhills and several miles of the South Platte River, the ranch sits amongst historical crossings of the American frontier, including the Oregon Trail, the Mormon Trail, the Pony Express route and the Northern cattle trail and the Lincoln Highway.
We Take Conservation Seriously
In addition to raising a limited number of high quality Quarter Horses and registered Angus Cattle with the best genetics we can produce, we are interested in conservation of the natural resources and preservation of our Nebraska way of life.
We have completed a significant project with Ducks Unlimited involving the cleanup and restoration of three miles of the South Platte River. We have also restored abused pastureland and turned marginal cropland into first-class upland game habitat. It has been a fascinating project to be able to transform this resource back to an area that supports abundant wildlife and thousands of migrating waterfowl, as well as effective farming and ranching operations.
