The mild high desert climate at Spring Valley Ranch averages in the mid 80’s in the summer and cool conditions that are well above freezing in the winter. The weather here is very similar to Kingman, Arizona, except that temperatures are consistently about 5 degrees cooler. Because Spring Valley Ranches is located in the Peacock Mountain Range, and at a higher elevation, that ranges from 4,000 – 5,200 feet we have more precipitation than Kingman and some of it in the form of snow in the winter time months is typical.
All of the parcels were professionally surveyed and staked, making clear identification of parcel corners easy. The roads are built to county standards and are maintained by the county leading into the ranch and by the POA within the ranch. All parcels have full physical and legal access by dedicated public or county roads.
Arizona is an open range state. This means that cattle pretty much graze where ever they prefer, and where desert feed is abundant. It also means you must fence the cattle out of your property if you don’t want them wandering through. Fencing must be suitable for this purpose. We have found that cattle are social animals and like to be around people. For that reason they are attracted to structures and road right-of-ways.
