Bell Brand Ranch – Elko County, Nevada
The Ranch consists of 7,900 deeded acres of which 1,600 are irrigated meadow – with solid decreed water rights from Camp Creek, Sun Creek and Deer Creek – capable of producing up to 2,200 tons of hay. In addition, the Ranch controls private BLM and USFS grazing allotments all under fence. Historically, the Bell Brand has been operated as a cow-calf and yearling operation – the current owner operates a cow-calf operation only. The deeded acreage together with the allotments provide a carrying capacity of approximately 1600 AUs. One operating scenario would be 750 head cow/calf plus 1,400 yearlings while cutting 600 acres of hay. The other operating scenario would be a yearling only operation of up to 2,900 yearlings from May-October putting the 600 hay producing acres back to grazing. This is an area of Elko County well known for its quality grass and healthy cattle and the Bell Brand has both! The well-maintained improvements include two homes, barn, shops and two sets of corrals.
The Ranch is well situated for access to numerous recreational pursuits in the adjacent Humbolt-Tolyable National Forest and Jarbidge Wilderness. The Bell Brand Ranch Headquarters are located 60 miles northwest of Wells, Nevada; 45 miles from Jackpot, Nevada; 90 miles from Twin Falls, Idaho and 110 miles from Elko, Nevada – all with jet capable airports. Twin Falls and Elko also offer a wide array of city amenities. Offered at $15,200,000 – this prime holding merits strong consideration by cattlemen and sportsmen alike.
