After an Oct. 5 Yavapai County Board of Supervisors executive session, where the board considered action in pending litigation in Arizona Cattle Growers Association v. Yavapai County, the supervisors unanimously approved the amount of $10.39 per acre at full cash value for tax years 2016 and 2017.

The Cattle Growers Association had been unhappy with County Assessor Pamela Pearsall’s revaluation in 2011 of about 430,000 acres of grazing lands from $7.56 per acre set in 1986 – and unchanged since then – to $25 per acre. The ranchers objected to this 300 percent increase, filed a lawsuit against Yavapai County in 2012, and sought to value the land at $3.54 per acre.
