The White Rock Allotment encompasses approximately 80,513 public land acres.
The purpose and need for the action is to fully process and renew the permits for NL Ranch (Norris Hendrix) and Joseph Peacock (Russel Peacock) on the White Rock Allotment (0902). The current term permit for NL Ranch authorizes 394 AUMs of cattle use with a season of use from 3/01 to 10/15. The current term permit for Joseph Peacock authorizes 872 AUMs of cattle use with a season of use from 3/01 to 10/15. Grazing use occurs in four fenced pastures of the allotment. The cattle numbers and season of use vary by pasture. The current term permit for both permits has been issued for the period 10/01/2000 to 9/30/2010. Cattle are the authorized kind of livestock. An evaluation of the range monitoring data will be conducted for the White Rock Allotment. This data will be summarized in a Standards Determination Document. The grazing permit area occurs entirely within White Pine County, and is situated in the central portion of the Ely District BLM, approximately 20 miles south and west of Ely, Nevada. The permit area occurs within the South Steptoe Valley (161), White River North (160A), and White River Central (160B) Watersheds. The term permit will be issued in accordance with Title 43 CFR 4130.2(a), “Grazing permits or leases shall be issued to qualified applicants to authorize use on the public lands and other lands under the administration of the Bureau of Land Management that are designated as available for livestock grazing through land use plans.”
