Paris Livestock Permit (Pete Paris Jr.) on the Six Mile Allotment (0613)
The legal location of the Six Mile Allotment is as follows:
T. 17N., R. 57E., many sections
T. 17N., R. 58E., several sections
The Six Mile Allotment encompasses approximately 21,335 public land acres.
The purpose and need for the action is to fully process and renew the grazing term permit and reissue a permit for Paris Livestock (Pete Paris Jr.) on the Six Mile Allotment (0613). Paris Livestock is currently leasing the allotment from Placer Dome LLC Incorporated. The current term permit authorizes 1,209 AUMs of sheep and cattle use with a season of use from 11/01 to 04/15 for sheep on native range and 04/15 to 10/31 for cattle in the Fernando Seedings. The current term permit has been issued for the period 11/01/2006 to 10/31/2011, based upon the grazing lease. Sheep and cattle are the authorized kind of livestock. An evaluation of the range monitoring data will be conducted for the Six Mile 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 west portion of the Ely District BLM, approximately 50 miles west of Ely, Nevada. The permit area occurs within the Newark Watershed (121). 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.”
