Around 200 cattle were found dead and 200 more removed from a ranch at 1817 Road C near Exeter last week.
Investigators with the Nebraska Brand Committee, the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol are investigating the case on suspicions of livestock theft and neglect.
Investigators served a search warrant at the property, which is listed as the address for feedlot operator Aaron Ogren, 30, on April 3.
At the property, investigators discovered more than 200 deceased cattle and one deceased horse.
More than 200 additional cattle were found to be in questionable to poor health and in poor living conditions.
Those animals were removed from the property April 3 and 4 and placed at a nearby ranch to be monitored and receive care.
The Nebraska Brand Committee is investigating additional reports of theft of livestock and violations of the Nebraska Livestock Brand Act.
It is believed that at least some of the animals found on the property are owned by an entity in Colorado.
