The Volmer ranch is situated in the upper reaches of the Cheyenne River breaks 31 miles east of Rapid City, in Pennington County SD. The local community of farms and ranches is known as the Owanka – Wicksville communities.
Access to the property is remarkable. The ranch is accessed by a short stretch of gravel off Hwy 14-16. Interstate 90 borders the property for 2 miles.

The property is fenced and cross fenced into several pastures providing opportunity to manage grazing and herd rotation. Some of the fence-lines have been placed for convenience and do not follow the property boundaries. Any refencing would be at the buyers discretion and expense.
