The Northstream Investments Main Ranch is a truly one of a kind ranch property. It combines the qualities of a large, contiguous ranch with great access, plentiful water, productive grassland, recreational opportunities, all within 5 minutes of one of the top livestock auction markets in the nation, the state capital of South Dakota, and the great Oahe Reservoir.
This ranch is one that checks many of the boxes for the producer looking for a nice, contiguous ranch with great accessibility, or the discriminating investor looking to add the stability of real estate to their investment portfolio. The ranch has not been grazed this 2020 grazing season and is in tremendous shape. If you have any interest in owning a great ranch property make plans to check out the Northstream Ranch.

The landscape of the Ranch is exactly what comes to mind when you think of the Grassy Plains of the Dakotas. Expansive plains covered with varieties of Wheat and Sedge grasses that grow stirrup high transition to rolling hills or sloping draws with the powerful native Buffalo and Gamma grasses as well as a few shear banks of Willow Creek reminding you of the days when the Sioux Warriors ruled the Plains.
Producers: The Ranch has been assembled and developed by the Nordstrom Family over the last 3 decades and is well suited for a myriad of operational possibilities. The building improvements, water infrastructure, and feed producing tillable acres make a great, traditional ranch for a cow/calf, stocker, or buffalo producer with enough size to be a stand-alone ranch or add on to an existing operation.
Investors: The Ranch would be a tremendous addition to an investment portfolio with multiple income streams including: grazing, farming, hunting, residential, and recreational income.
Hunting: The wildlife on the ranch are prolific. In addition to the natural attraction of Willow Creek much careful consideration has been given to food plot placement, shelterbelts, and water development to create a haven for the Whitetail deer and Game Bird populations.
There are three separate homesites on the ranch with supporting outbuildings. The standout feature of the “Willow Creek” unit is a shop with heated cement floor and overhead doors. It also has an older home, garage, machine shed, livestock shed, and corrals. The “Hunting Cabin” unit has a nicely appointed home with machine shed and livestock barn. The “Stirling Place” is surrounded by a beautiful, expansive shelterbelt and consists of a home with attached garage, three livestock sheds and a small shop.
This Central South Dakota ranch has remarkable access. It is bordered on the South by over 4 miles of Highway 34 and on the North by 3 miles of the Mission Ridge Road which overlooks Oahe Reservoir. A couple old, gravel roads wind through the property allowing ease of travel from one end to the other making checking tanks and scattering mineral an efficient project.
West River Lyman Jones Rural Water mains run along the North and South boundaries and are tied to multiple water taps with several miles of pipeline connecting water tanks and Cobett Waterers. 3 Artesian Wells connect a series of tanks with overflows which drain in to holding ponds creating water, vegetation, and shelter for livestock and wildlife. Willow creek meanders through the property for over 5 miles, with banks ranging from short and gradual to tall, shear banks. Several of the bends of Willow Creek are especially nice with brushy pockets where livestock and wildlife find shelter.
The Main Ranch consists of 6,916.53 all deeded, contiguous acres.
448.09 Tillable (174.73 Base Acres)
