Elm Creek Wild Horse and Burro Corrals
The Wild Horse and Burro Corrals at Elm Creek has been in place since 1994. Elm Creek is the mid-states resting point for animals on their journey to either Off-Range Pastures in the mid-west or adoption events in the mid-west to the east coast. The facility is located on approximately 35 acres on Highway 183 north of Elm Creek, Nebraska and approximately 6 miles north of Exit 257 from Interstate 80. The facility is located on the northwest corner of the intersection between Highway 183 and 100th Road.
The Elm Creek facility can house up to 500 animals, but has an average population of 350-450 animals year-round. The animals at the facility are a mix of mares, geldings, burros and yearlings from most of the Western States that have wild horses and burros on public lands.
