40 miles north of Winnemucca is Paradise Valley, Nevada. A small historic ranching town with an abundance of historic buildings dating back to the 1800’s. This valley has always had the climate, soils and water to support solid ranching operations. Winnemucca, less than an hour to the south of the valley, provides the resources to support this small ranching community. Paradise Valley is a wonderful place to raise a family and the town has an excellent pre-kindergarten through eighth grade elementary school. Access to Winnemucca is all paved highway.
The T five operation stretches from the valley floor, at the base of the Santa Rosa’s, up through the foothills and into the high country of the Martin Creek Basin. The ranch is blessed with the spring and summer grass that the mountains provide. Creeks and springs from this mountain range provide the water to grow the hay needed to winter the cattle. The ranch consistently produces surplus hay.
Winters here are mild and the cows calve in the valley early in the spring. The cattle are on the winter pastures for 4-5 months and are turned out the gate onto the spring permits as pairs. They gradually move through the BLM allotments, gaining elevation until they reach the high mountain basins of the USFS allotments.
Irrigation And Water
Vested rights to springs, ponds and reservoirs on the federal allotments ensure reliable water for the stock. These rights are owned by the ranch. There are 150 sources that are mapped and are recorded.
Adjudicated rights under the Humboldt Decree allow for the use of surface and groundwater for irrigation. These are extremely valuable rights to hold considering the ranch lies within a closed basin and further groundwater drafting is prohibited.
The snowmelt off the Santa Rosa’s fills the banks of Singas Creek and the T Five is allotted the first13 cfs (nearly 6,000 gpm!). This surface water will typically last midway through the summer. As the steam tapers off, the groundwater wells provide the water to finish out the season.
Facilities And Equipment
The cattle handling facilities and equipment are in top working order and built out of heavy duty materials that will hold up over time. Large pens connected by long alleyways make it easy to handle large groups of cattle. The corral system features a hydraulic chute, covered scale, sweep tubs on both the lead-up and loading chute.
There is 950 feet of bunk space fronting small and large pens. Bunks are concrete and cable construction.
Other large pens surround providing plenty of room to hold cattle.
