The Pleasant Valley Cattle Ranch is located approximately 45 miles south of Winnemucca on Grass Valley Rd. The ranch is made up of two historic cattle ranches, the Paris Ranch and the Siard Ranch. There are just under 6,000 non-contiguous deeded acres consisting of 54 separate parcels nearly all with some type of water source. There is expansive mountain range land, natural springs, permitted springs and creek water that provide for abundant water for more than 500 acres of flood irrigated pasture.
The livestock operation includes 170,000 BLM Grazing Allotment acres with 8,633 AUMs and a carrying capacity of 1,000+ cattle in Summer and 500 head in winter. The combination of the two historic ranches make up the Pleasant Valley Cattle Ranch and include the deeded acreage along with 170,000 acres of BLM Grazing Allotments covering both the valley corridor and higher western elevations. Improvements on the ranch are basic but in good working condition including livestock scales, corrals and a good livestock chute. Although there are currently no homes or living quarters on the ranch, there are several old out buildings and previous historical home sites available for immediate off grid development. The ranch can be operated efficiently with one or two solid ranch hands.
The Pleasant Valley Cattle Ranch is a throw back to the old wild west! Similar to what you might see in Wyoming or Montana, plenty of free water that originates on the ranch and stays on the ranch. The ranch has remained virtually unchanged for over a century. The hunting and fishing in the area is excellent and includes mule deer, antelope and big horn sheep. Taxes are less than $5,000. annually and major shopping (including Wal Mart), excellent medical facilities and good schools are less than an hour away in Winnemucca.
