Northeastern Region

Like Nevada’s Sierra Region, the Northeastern Region is bordered by glacier-carved mountains—the Ruby Mountains.  At the higher elevations, abundant water and milder temperatures produce some of the sweetest and most sought after alfalfa on century-old ranches. 

Interstate 80 and the Elko Railport connect the region’s mining and agricultural outputs with international markets.

The region is comprised of  Battle Mountain, Carlin, Denio, Elko, Jackpot, Jarbidge, Lamoille, Lovelock, McDermitt, Wells, West Wendover, and Winnemucca.
