The Forest Service requires a transfer of some
base property (deeded land or cattle) with the
transfer of a grazing permit. The listing price
does not include base property. The Seller is
open to communication and negotiation about
base property that suits both Buyer and Seller.
Allotment also offered in conjunction with 120deeded acre Mill Creek Mountain Range. (see
location on map on following page).
Both grass and water are plentiful on the allotment and calf and yearling gains have been
excellent. Large areas of open grass are intermingled with timber throughout the allotment. Cattle
movement and grazing is influenced by active management of salt and mineral
placement. Currently, a rider attends the allotment about 3 days a week to move salt and inspect
the cattle.
