BLM, Forest Service announce 2013 grazing fees

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The 2013 federal grazing fees will not change from last year, according to a joint Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service news release.

This year’s fee on BLM has been set at $1.35 per animal unit month, and $1.35 per head month on lands managed by the Forest Service.

An AUM or HM is the occupancy and use of public lands by one cow and her calf, one horse, or five sheep or goats for a month, the news release states.

The fees take effect March 1 and apply to about 18,000 grazing permits and leases administered by BLM, and more than 8,000 permits administered by the Forest Service.

The fees apply to public lands administered by the two agencies in 16 western states, including Colorado, Arizona, California, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

Permit holders and lessees may contact their local BLM or Forest Service office for more information.
