From 1938 until the mid-80s Hussa Ranch ran in our cattle
“in-common” with two other Surprise Valley ranchers on the Nevada high desert.
It was a historically sound method of grazing cattle while maintaining hay
production and wintering ground on the home ranches in the valley.
Government grazing policy changed the practice and the ranching operation moved
exclusively to the home ranch. Hussa Ranch has progressed from John’s
grandparents’ stagecoach arrival in Surprise Valley to the cyber word. The
internet is the prime means of our yearling cattle sales.
We raise commercial cattle (meaning not
purebred, for beef.) But we use Purebred Angus
bulls on a set of cows that are good mothers and exceptional milk producers.
