When you live in Wheeler County, NE, where the cattle outnumber the people, you know you are in an area that understands beef. The Wagonhammer Ranch is a family owned and operated ranch that opened its gates in 1910. The Black Angus cattle this ranch produces are highly sought after and known to be of the highest quality. Besides the attention to detail, the toil and the sweat, Jay Wolf, rancher-owner at Wagonhammer, believes it is something special that helps the cattle he raises earn the reputation they do.
“This is rich cow-calf country. We’ve been blessed with great grass,” said Wolf. “We take good care of the land, and it takes good care of us.” For more than a century, the Wagonhammer Ranch proves that the best Angus beef starts with a strong passion and understanding for what it takes to produce it. “My father was a rancher, his father was a rancher and I am carrying on all that they started.”
